What is with all these men wanting to come over? Don’t they get it? We make 77 cents on the dollar. We get the majority of the housework and childcare in a two parent household. We get passed over, hit glass ceilings, and have our asses grabbed. Our scientific contributions are not recognized. We don’t have autonomy over our own bodies, and in several states now, don’t even have access to adequate women’s health care. We even get sentenced to gang rape because of something a family member did. WHO THE FUCK WOULD CHOOSE THIS?

STAY ON YOUR OWN SIDE. THE LIPSTICK COLORS ARE THE SAME.
