“You’re going to be single for the rest of your life if your standards are so high!”

“My standards are the lowest a person can have. My standards are literally no racism, sexism, homophobia, misogyny or anything like that. Basically no bigotry. One standard.”

“That’s what I’m saying! High standards! You’ll be forever alone. You can’t expect anyone to be like that, can you?”

“If everyone is a bigot in one way or another, do you not see the problem with the world?”

 

–Actual conversation I’ve had with an actual person.–

So everyone else is allowed to be an asshole but I’m not even allowed to be pissed about that? They call me an ‘angry feminist’ like I’m supposed to be offended by that. But have you ever wondered why feminists are angry?

Yes, I get angry about injustice. No, I won’t stop. If that means I’ll be single forever, I don’t even think it’s a price I have to pay. Better to be alone than be depressed and oppressed.

…and yet, I’m the ‘crazy’ one.
