"You know they have so much love for each other, those two. They’re siblings in many ways. He’s always going to go back to her, she’s always going to go back to him. It’s just a partnership. They’re teammates."
-Emily VanCamp (x)
here’s an example of how insidious this is:
If you were one of those young girls who was simultaneously told that she was smart and talented and loveable for being smart and talented but also told that men were smarter and more valuable than women, you might grow up rejecting anything even vaguely feminine because you didn’t want to be mistaken for weak/stupid/ girly, which you know are bad things.
So you might have a whole lot of tastes that you thought were intrinsic to your personality, like hating the color pink, that are really internalized misogyny. You might grow up and discover some girly stuff that is GREAT like Sailor Moon and realize that you don’t actually hate sparkles and flowers and pink after all, and wonder how different you might have been if you hadn’t been taught from an early age that being a girl was distasteful.
oh look the realization i’ve been having for the past few years
