"I am a millenial. Generation Y. Born between the birth of AIDS and 9/11. Give or take. They call us the global generation. We are known for out entitlement and narcissism. Some say it’s because we’re the first generation where every kid gets a trophy for just growing up. Others thinks it’s because social media allows us to post every time we fart or have a sandwich for all the world to see. But it seems our one defining trait is a numbness to the world. An indifference to suffering."

Boys and their bodily autonomy is hardly ever scrutinized or denied to them, unless of course they step out of societal impositions of masculinity. Girls however, are a precarious case. No matter what girls do, its wrong by some standard. We tell girls that if they transgress, they are not worthy of love or respect. We tell them this early too, when they are the most impressionable and can easily internalize these messages. “Don’t be too loud, too demanding, too nagging. You’ll scare boys away” or the dreaded “If he messes with you, its his way of showing you”. We equate harassment with attraction. Then they get older and its “don’t engage in anything promiscuous, don’t show too much skin, don’t draw attention to yourself, until you get married”. And they’re expected to be 100% comfortable in their sexuality because they have a gold band and a license that acknowledges their union when sex was a dirty stain on their personhood for their entire unmarrie lives. So you essentially leave male sexual autonomy with them, but female bodily autonomy is also men’s. We create a world where sex in its whole form is a man’s playing field, where male desires supercede. Where men get to be aggressive and chavinistic and they’re just victims to their male tendencies and should be synpathized with because “boys will be boys”.
And then we wonder to ourselves why some girls grow up into confused women and make decisions that leave them in unfortunate situations. And then blame them. Patriarchy is a system where women are told to act a certain way and then we punish them for it.
