Many women, I think, resist feminism because it is an agony to be fully conscious of the brutal misogyny which permeates culture, society, and all personal relationships.

This is actually so fucking scarily true. I got into feminism, properly, only fairly recently and, honestly, it’s just fucking heartbreaking and depressing on a daily goddamn basis. Once your eyes have been opened to the sheer level of misogyny that permeates our society and how it effects fucking everything, you can’t not see it anymore, you can’t pretend it’s not happening, you can’t help being aware of it and it makes me so fucking angry and, at the same time, so despairing of us ever being able to truly change such deeply ingrained inequalities and attitudes.
