formlessforce:

The funniest thing in the world is straight guys who hit on random women they don’t know but have this indignant fear that a gay man is going to hit on them

like, they’re aware of how uncomfortable unwanted advances from strangers are, but are somehow too stupid to see the irony that they do to women what they’re afraid gay men will do to them

“The irony is that, whereas dependency is typically seen as a female attribute, femininity does not depend on males staying in their place. In contrast, men who accept [hegemonic masculinity] require control over women (which takes many forms) in order to know that they are “real” men.” Patricia Hill Collins in Black Sexual Politics

Let’s examine this:

Miss is a word for a woman that has not been married.

Mrs. is an abbreviation of the word Mistress, used as a title for a woman that is married or widowed.

Ms. is a title used for a woman whose marital status is unknown or irrelevant (as in business).

The letters Ms. are not an abbreviation of a word, they are an amalgamation drawn from the letters of Miss and Mrs.

On the other hand, a man is just a mister (Mr.)

You see men don’t have to determine their sexual availability like women.
