my actual writing, if you're curious

Apparently anti-feminist women have now taken to promoting the meme that feminists “won’t take no for an answer” and “can’t accept that no means no.”

First of all, that is a disgustingly cheap rhetorical trick and you should be ashamed of yourselves.

But second, to actually address the argument: it is not, in fact, a violation of someone’s consent to promote an ideological agenda they disagree with that does not force anything upon their bodies or lives—unless they want it. If you WANT to not vote, not wear pants, and not be able to say “no” to your husband, that’s your choice. I don’t UNDERSTAND it, but the existence of feminism is not taking that choice away from you. Neither is the existence of anti-sexual assault measures, fair pay laws, or anything else you find so offensive.

What a fucking farce, and what a mockery this makes of the actual meaning of “consent” and “no means no.”
