And, in a very real way, ignoring “the little things” in favor of “the big stuff” makes the big stuff that much harder to eradicate, because it is the pervasive, ubiquitous, inescapable little things that create the foundation of a sexist culture on which the big stuff is dependent for its survival. It’s the little things, the constant drumbeat of inequality and objectification, that inure us to increasingly horrible acts and attitudes toward women.

Irrespective of intent, the recommendation to “ignore the little stuff,” so often intertwined with accusations of looking for things about which to get offended, is not just ill-advised, but counter to the ultimate goal of full equality. It’s like a knife in my gut when I see feminists accusing other feminists of “hurting the cause” by focusing on “the little stuff,” because that’s It—that’s the stuff, that’s the fertile soil in which everything else takes root and from whence everything else springs, that’s the way that the fundamental idea that women are not equal to men is conveyed over and over and over again.

Женщины как яблоки.Самые вкусные висят на самой макушке дерева.Многие мужчины не хотят лезть на дерево за вкусными яблоками, потому что они боятся упасть и удариться.Вместо этого они собирают упавшие яблоки с земли, которые не так хороши, но зато доступны.Поэтому яблоки на макушке думают, что с ними что то не так, хотя на самом деле ОНИ ВЕЛИКОЛЕПНЫ. Им просто нужно дождаться того человека, который не побоится залезть на макушку дерева!


Women are like apples. The most delicious ones hang from the very top of the tree. Most men don't want to climb the tree for the delicious apples, because they're afraid of falling and hurting themselves. Instead, they gather the fallen apples on the ground, which aren't as good, but very available. Because of this, the apples on top of the tree think that there's something wrong with them, when in reality THEY'RE MARVELOUS. They just need to find patience and wait for the person who won't be afraid to climb to the top of the tree.
