Why did you let me click over to the Irrational Black Woman blog???? WHY????

Like…a third of the posts are some form of "Black woman does a thing, GETS MAD WHEN SHE GETS HIT." Complete with a gif of the words "hit me" and a dude shoving a woman to the ground.  Basically it's just a circle jerk of justifications for the violence Black women experience.  There's also plenty versions of "She wore a thing, got made when she got attention."  And I think it's very interesting how they use the word "attention" instead of groped/threatened/assaulted/grabbed…. Not that I expect men to accurately portray the violence they commit against us. Ugh. Whatever.
