IF YOU ARE A WOMAN!!! YOU ARE NOT EXEMPT FROM HOLDING OTHER WOMEN TO SEXIST STANDARDS PUT UP BY THE PATRIARCHY.
SAYING “I AM A WOMAN” DOES NOT MEAN WHAT YOU ARE SAYING/DOING ISN’T SEXIST.
IT VERY MUCH CAN BE.
"Indeed, the idea of ‘winning the girl’ – of overcoming female objections or resistance through repeated and frequently escalating efforts – is central to most of our modern romantic narratives. (Female persistence, by contrast, is viewed as pathetic.) And the more I think about instances of creepiness, harassment and stalking that culminate in either the threat or actuality of sexual assault, the more I’m convinced that a massive part of the problem is this socially sanctioned idea that men are fundamentally entitled to persist. Because if men are meant to persist, then women who say no must only be rejecting the attempt, not the man himself, so that every separate attempt becomes one of a potentially infinite number of keys which might just fit the lock of the woman’s approval. She’s not the one who’s allowed to say no, not really; she should be silent and passive as a locked door, waiting patiently while the man runs through however many keys he can be bothered trying. And if he gets sick of this lengthy process and just breaks in? Well, frustration under those circumstances is only natural. Either the door shouldn’t have been there to impede him, or it shouldn’t have been locked."
So today Angelina Jolie had double mastectomy, which is the removal of one’s breasts, to prevent Breast cancer. So instead of praising Angelina on her bravery, men on Twitter decided to ridicule her, even calling her stupid for removing her breasts. For those of you on Tumblr that are attacking Feminists about being delusional about sexism against women and misogyny here’s your fucking proof that sexism and misogyny exists.
This is distressing and awful to see this..
All of them can fuck the fuck off.
I want to stab all of them in the eye sockets
I’m honestly not suprised by this. Nope. Not at all.
I’d bet they’d all be changing their tune if it was someone they loved going through it. It’s easy to make fun of someone you don’t know personally.
Queen of the Friendzone: [TW] Canadian feminist activist receives rape threats, death threats and other abuse after being targeted by Men’s...
(manboobz.com) - And so the MRAs have found yet another woman to hate.
Earlier this month, as many of you no doubt know, a Men’s Rights group sponsored a lecture at the University of Toronto. The event drew protesters, and the protesters drew MRAs with video cameras. One of the MRAs filmed a confrontation between a red-haired feminist activist and a number of MRAs who continually interrupted her as she tried to read a brief statement.
Her crime? She wasn’t exactly polite in responding to the interrupters. And so, after video of the confrontation was uploaded to YouTube, and linked to on the Men’s Rights subreddit and elsewhere, she became a virtual punching bag for the angry misogynists of the internet.
A Voice for Men, naturally, led the charge, running an article by Canadian MRA Dan Perrins labeling her “Little red frothing fornication mouth” and commenting on her breasts. The Amazing Atheist weighed in with a video I couldn’t bring myself to even watch.
Since being targeted by angry YouTube misogynists and MRAs, the red-haired activist has received death threats, rape threats and literally hundreds of other hateful and harassing messages. She’s also been “doxxed” — that is, she’s had her personal information plastered all over the internet, including on A Voice for Men’s forum. Ten days after being uploaded to YouTube, the video of her faceoff against the MRAs has garnered more than 300,000 views, and YouTubers are still leaving threats and insults and crude sexual comments.
This, apparently, is what “Men’s Human Rights Activism” consists of: the doxxing and harassment of individual women.
There are screen caps of several of the messages she has been receiving under the read more link.
Be warned, several of them are very triggering. This kind of thing needs to see the light of day, though, as MRAs like to pretend that this doesn’t happen.
I’m really not sure what to think. The threats she’s gotten are disgusting and I agree with what she had to say, but…the conference itself was about both misandry AND misogyny. It wasn’t just about men’s rights. So I’m really not sure why feminists were protesting it and being as loud as they were during the lecture which seemed pretty okay to me.
Now imagine you’re an “objective” racist white scientist who decides to give a group of black men a STI and, instead of treating them for it, watch them slowly suffer from it so you can study it FOR SCIENCE.
Now imagine you’re the white supremacist sexist medical establishment that denies women the right to get their tubes tied unless they already have loads of kids and require them to get their husband’s permission while at the same time forcibly sterilising legions of native and black women.
Now imagine you’re an “objective” racist psychologist who decides that slaves wanting to escape is a psychological disorder called “drapetomania” and the “cure” for that is lashings and cutting off toes.
Now imagine that you’re the “objective” and “scientific” medical establishment that deems queerness a disorder and decides that electroshock treatments or lobotomies are the effective solution or feels the need to “intervene” by surgically altering the bodies of intersex infants to fit your perceptions of what genitalia should look like.
Religion has done a lot of fucked up shit. But I’m sick and tired of people acting like SCIENCE hasn’t been involved in wars, death, and genocide either. And it’s the assumptive bullshit notion that ALL religions are somehow stupid and not worth your consideration that perpetuates this colonialist bullshit approach that white people have now upon Native and other individuals when tribes fight for the right to their sacred lands of, “Oh you’re religion is just hooey!”
First they “civilised” us with religion and now it’s science and repatriation. Stealing native lands and native artefacts and native bodies FOR SCIENCE so you can profit off of them.
If you’re going to lay in on the death religion causes, IMO you better realise that there’s a difference between the bastion of white supremacist cisheteropatriarchy that is modern Christianity and other religions which have little in the way of social power in comparison. AND you better recognise that science can be just another extention of white supremacist cisheteropartiarchy too and FURTHER the goals of that power structure rather than being as “objective” as they claim and countering it.
Haha. Imagine that.
Also, Ricky Gervais is a jerk.
Uh. To be fair, people start wars over other religions besides Christianity. It’s just the one we happen to know a lot about since it’s so prevalent. I think it’s dangerous to assume only one kind of person — apparently white, heterosexual, cis men — are capable of such atrocities. Zealotry drives people to do some very terrible things, whether it be in their science or their religion.
"If we actually started calling bullying what it is and address it as racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, fat phobia and classism it would actually give children a better way to deal with the very same power dynamics they will face as adults, while also giving adults more responsibility to challenge the intolerance that is rooted within our society overall."
im setting myself on fire goodbye
I made you a sandwich put it in your mouth
TELL THAT TO MOTHERFUCKING QUEEN VICTORIA AND HER HUGE ASS EMPIRE BITCH
I couldn’t hear you.
Over all the voices of amazing women.
Who could have
Reblogging this for the gender studies we’re doing in my history course.
No important discoveries of course because discovering what the sun is made of isn’t important at all OH NO.
Whaaat a douchetit fucknugget. I’d love to practice my crotch kicking skills on this dude.
HOW ABOUT THE FACT THAT THOUSANDS OF WOMEN ARE RAPED OR MURDERED BY SOLDIERS DURING WAR.
Anytime you see someone say something like “I’m not a <insert type of bigot here>, but…” you can be pretty damned sure that they about to prove exactly why they are that type of bigot.
And fuck the douchebag poster maker.
So basically: YOU’RE TOO EMOTIONAL, UNMOTIVATED, WEAK, UNINTELLIGENT, AND NATURALLY INFERIOR, AND IF YOU’RE NOT PRETTY AND/OR CAN HAVE CHILDREN YOU’RE WORTHLESS oh but btws, totes not a sexist u guiz.
The amount of cognitive dissonance required for these people to be able to function is absolutely astounding. And by astounding I mean completely appalling. Ugh. I hope his friends and relatives tore him a new one for this.
“boys are just naturally better than girls at-“
“boys and girls are just hard-wired to learn diff-“
“it’s not my opinion it’s science and-“
privilegedenyingfeministcunt sums this one up. Fuck everything.
It scares me this person thinks this is a healthy normal way to cope with negativity. It’s not coping. It’s perpetuating and continuing to enforce all the terrible things they feel in dealing with things like sexism and homophobia.
“Men are so violent!, if we killed them all, there’d be no violence!”
