… because I’m bisexual, my brother is autistic, my friend is transgender, my PE teacher discriminates Muslims, my mum is unhappy, my dad dislikes my sexual orientation, my grandmother was harassed by my grandfather, my best friend feels he must compete against other guys, my doctor asked me if I had “learned from my mistakes” when I told him about the sexual abuse I had experienced.
In the end, we all need equality.
SOCIETY NEEDS FEMINISM
Easily the best Who Needs Feminism ever.

Description: Alright, so I work at a dairy, so I’m not sure if it’s classified as Retail but most of what’s been posted here has or can happen at the shop so here goes. A middle-aged man (looked to be in his late thirties or early forties) asked for a double scoop of ice cream, which means I have to bend forward over the freezer to make it, looking up this man is practically oogling my cleavage.
Now since it’s a small business owned by a friend of the family, we generally don’t have to put up with customers being assholes, but I’m usually quite patient despite absolutely hating this job. But the guy wasn’t even attempting to pretend that he wasn’t staring. So I say “Sir, if you want to keep your eyes inside your head, stand by the register.” The guy got disgruntled, threw his money on the counter and took his ice cream and stormed out while me and the second customer who had seen the exchange laughed behind his back.
Don’t take no shit from leechers.
On behalf of everyone who has ever been sexually harassed in retail, I heartily salute you. You speak out loud what we all wish we could’ve said (and/or done). GLORY!
Amy Poehler is the best and Seventeen magazine is the worst and the only thing I would add to that answer would be a solid “Fuck you” after the end.
I certainly could’ve used some Amy Poehler in the seventeen I read as a “tween”. BEING POSITIVE ROLE MODEL FOR YOUNG GIRLS WIN.
