My personal experience with the creeper double standard.
I don’t normally post things about this aspect of my past, but the quote I posted earlier today really struck me. Since reading it, my mind has been on a very concrete memory of facing the creeper double standard.
I remember the first year that I knew my abusive ex-boyfriend, before he was either abusive or my boyfriend, telling him about someone creepy. I don’t remember who it was or what they had done, but I do remember my ex’s reaction. He scolded me for calling any man creepy. He demanded concrete reasons why this guy was creepy, and he was defensive when my reasons were subjective. My ex then told me that creepy was the worst thing a woman could call a man, and that I should feel terrible.
There are reasons why feminism is important to me.
