nothatsstupid:

“One male poet approached me after a performance and said, “I don’t mean to be rude, but do you ever write about anything other than the struggles of women?” I replied, “I don’t mean to be rude, but take your finger off the trigger and I’ll stop.” After all, who among us ever wanted to speak about these things? What little girl dreams of growing up to write ‘rape poems?’ About violence? About the muffled voices of women worldwide?” -Andrea Gibson

No one ever asks men why they write books, movies, games, TV shows, laws, text books, entire genres of media (games) without any female input or any females at all. It’s only a problem when women do it.
