Barefoot on a summer night on We Heart It
Most guys do not have to deal with the world of women. They’re born from us, they live around us, but for the most part, we take care of our own shit. We buy our own tampons. We deal with skeevy guys who catcall us. We deal with crappier work situations. We deal with getting told we suck at things because we have a vagina, and that we need to be prettier. […]
Then, they had daughters. […]
The girl goes to school, and you watch how she’s never called on. You hear someone insult someone else by calling them ‘a girl’, and it stings. Your little girl is awesome! She’s brave and smart and funny! Why would anyone use that as an insult? Then, you remember all the times you did it.
And then, you realize that, all along, you’ve been a part of the problem."
It’s like when a man has a daughter he suddenly wakes up and realizes, “Oh my God, boys out there are going to treat my daughter the way I used to treat girls”. That’s why men are so protective of their daughters. They know how awful boys are because they acted the same exact way. And instead of teaching your sons not to be assholes, you hide your daughters away.
Very well said.

He teases you
Rewind to grade school. Did a dude ever kick you in the shins or tug your ponytail on the playground? Well, when a boy likes a girl, he often acts like an ass to show her just how much. And unfortunately, some guys never outgrow those antics. Meet Joel, 22: “The first time I went out with Sarah, I kept making fun of her glasses,” he says. “I wasn’t trying to be mean. I just wanted a reaction from her.” The takeaway? If a guy dishes it, he can take it. So give it to him. Give it to him good.
