When men make me uncomfortable, it’s because they are total strangers sending me sick pics, or rape threats, or trying to grab my body in public, or near strangers hitting on me in a way they hope I won’t be able to resist even if I want to.

When I make men uncomfortable, it’s because I do something human like hit on them when they don’t want me to and stop when they tell me to like a reasonable and respectful human being.

When women act “crazy” it’s because we’ve been traumatized and damaged by living under patriarchy and trying to protect ourselves from what we can’t protect ourselves from. The victims are given the least leeway, the offenders are given the most.
