“But women can never be careful enough, can we? If we take naked pictures of ourselves, we’re asking for it. If someone can manage to hack into our accounts, we’re asking for it. If we’re not wearing anti-rape nail polish, we’re asking for it. If we don’t take self-defence classes, we’re asking for it. If we get drunk, we’re asking for it. If our skirts are too short, we’re asking for it. If we pass out at a party, we’re asking for it. If we are not hyper-vigilant every single fucking second of every single fucking day, we are asking for it. Even when we are hyper-vigilant, we’re still asking for it. The fact that we exist is asking for it. This is what rape culture looks like. This is what misogyny looks like.”

— from What Happened to Jennifer Lawrence Was Sexual Assault  (via catagator)

But when it happens to men, it’s something to celebrate, isn’t it?

When Tom Daley’s “friend” takes a photo of him in the shower and uploads it to twitter for follows, feminists don’t care do they?

Did feminists care when Dustin Lance Black’s nudes got spilled?

Oh wait, feminists actually catfished gay men on grindr to use their naked photos in an art gallery.

In fact, three days ago a boy who only just turned 18 had his nudes spilled by a girl he was interested in. He actually ended up apoligising.  All the tumblrinas on here reblogged about how awesome it was.

And has been said, when the paps camped outside Zac Efron’s waiting for a naked photo, instead of being outraged, lots of women celebrated being able to see a naked Zac Efron.

Men get raped and sexually assaulted, and people do not give a tenth of the shit they would if it happened to a woman.  Men are often blamed for their own rapes.

I’ve seen feminists on this site insist that if a woman forces herself on a literal child, he’s probably the rapist.  Even if we are talking about a 30 year old woman and a 12 year old boy or even younger.

Feminists on this site treat male victims of sexual assault as nothing more then myths and inconveniences.   Things to be silenced and only paid lip service when it’s in feminism’s best interests to do so,

Put that card right back in the deck where you found it. 

Anonymous asked -- part 1 That Lindy West article, the one about "feminist are working on men's issues (so shut up)!" reminds me so much of church views on gayness. "We don't hate gay people, we just think that their actions lead to the discrimination they receive and that they're sinners and responsible for society's disgusting attitudes because of their immoral lust, but they just need to learn to trust us because we're working on vanquishing wrongdoing and we know what's best for them." That kind of rambling 

justification doesn’t reassure or help gay people, or men, all it does is make the speakers feel better about treating them poorly. It’s very convincing, I know firsthand, and only once you’re willing to listen to the target do you start realizing it’s bull.

Anonymous asked -- Another reason I'm not a feminist is because so-called body positive advocates do all they can to make fat girls feel beautiful, attractive, and confident (which is awesome), but do it at the expense of thin girls (which isn't), and when said thin girls complain, they're told "you get praised all the time, get over it," like their feelings don't matter. Really, is there any good reason to invalidate anyone's feelings? 

Anonymous asked -- I can't believe that post saying "Feminists don't want men to X, because X is part of the patriarchy," when they also claim the Patriarchy is an establishment created by MEN to hold down WOMEN. That it harms men also doesn't make sense. 

The more you think about it, the less sense it makes. And yet, it’s still a widely accepted theory among feminists. Telling, no?

A List of “Men’s Rights” Issues That Feminism Is Already Working On

Feminists do not want you to lose custody of your children. The assumption that women are naturally better caregivers is part of patriarchy.

Feminists do not like commercials in which bumbling dads mess up the laundry and competent wives have to bustle in and fix it. The assumption that women are naturally better housekeepers is part of patriarchy.

Feminists do not want you to have to make alimony payments. Alimony is set up to combat the fact that women have been historically expected to prioritize domestic duties over professional goals, thus minimizing their earning potential if their “traditional” marriages end. The assumption that wives should make babies instead of money is part of patriarchy.

Feminists do not want anyone to get raped in prison. Permissiveness and jokes about prison rape are part of rape culture, which is part of patriarchy.

Feminists do not want anyone to be falsely accused of rape. False rape accusations discredit rape victims, which reinforces rape culture, which is part of patriarchy.

Feminists do not want you to be lonely and we do not hate “nice guys.” The idea that certain people are inherently more valuable than other people because of superficial physical attributes is part of patriarchy.

Feminists do not want you to have to pay for dinner. We want the opportunity to achieve financial success on par with men in any field we choose (and are qualified for), and the fact that we currently don’t is part of patriarchy. The idea that men should coddle and provide for women, and/or purchase their affections in romantic contexts, is condescending and damaging and part of patriarchy.

Feminists do not want you to be maimed or killed in industrial accidents, or toil in coal mines while we do cushy secretarial work and various yarn-themed activities. The fact that women have long been shut out of dangerous industrial jobs (by men, by the way) is part of patriarchy.

Feminists do not want you to commit suicide. Any pressures and expectations that lower the quality of life of any gender are part of patriarchy. The fact that depression is characterized as an effeminate weakness, making men less likely to seek treatment, is part of patriarchy.

Feminists do not want you to be viewed with suspicion when you take your child to the park (men frequently insist that this is a serious issue, so I will take them at their word). The assumption that men are insatiable sexual animals, combined with the idea that it’s unnatural for men to care for children, is part of patriarchy.

Feminists do not want you to be drafted and then die in a war while we stay home and iron stuff. The idea that women are too weak to fight or too delicate to function in a military setting is part of patriarchy.

Feminists do not want women to escape prosecution on legitimate domestic violence charges, nor do we want men to be ridiculed for being raped or abused. The idea that women are naturally gentle and compliant and that victimhood is inherently feminine is part of patriarchy.

Feminists hate patriarchy. We do not hate you.

If you really care about those issues as passionately as you say you do, you should be thanking feminists, because feminism is a social movement actively dedicated to dismantling every single one of them. The fact that you blame feminists—your allies—for problems against which they have been struggling for decades suggests that supporting men isn’t nearly as important to you as resenting women. We care about your problems a lot. Could you try caring about ours?

Excerpt from If I Admit That Hating Men is a Thing, Will You Stop Turning it Into a Self-fulfilling Prophecy?, by Lindy West  (via lilac-time)

fucking THANK YOU

(via you-idiot-kid)

this is a BIG thing that men don’t get about feminism and patriarchy. 

(via middleschooltrackstar)

I’ve reblogged this before but it bears repeating

(via manicscribble)

Everyone. Please read this. Please just stop what you’re doing, and please read this. This is so critical, so important. Please read. 

(via theyoungblackfeminist)

Instead of saying “We’re working on that” why not prove it with some actual sources?

Read this before just accepting anything that says “feminism is good” without any actual proof:

Father’s rights group want shared parenting (equal custody) to be the default if both parents want custody and neither parent is unfit. They feel that men should not be punished for being men, and that women should not be awarded custody to their kids simply for being women. Currently women are awarded primary custody almost all the time, even if the husband was the stay-at-home Dad and the woman was the breadwinner.

Feminists fought against this. You can read NOW’s own statement here. Also note their usage of anti-male lies, i.e. “fathers are abusive, don’t give them custody.” That is from 1997, but still remains valid today.

Men want protection against false rape allegations. They feel that a man’s life should not be ruined simply on the allegation of a woman who may be a vindictive liar. Currently, a woman can accuse a man of rape for no reason, and the man’s name is splashed in the paper and his life is ruined. So, they fought for laws granting men anonymity until charged with the crime of rape—not convicted, just charged.

Feminists fought against this, causing it to fail. Also see here, the London Feminist Network campaigning to defeat the proposal.

“The London Feminist Network is a campaigning organisation uniting London based feminist groups and individuals in activism.”

Men want an end to the justice system favouring women simply because they are women, and giving men harsher sentences simply because they are men.

Feminists fought against this, arguing that no woman should be sent to jail, even women who had murdered multiple people.

Men want equal treatment when victims of domestic violence, and to not be arrested for the crime of “being male” under primary aggressor policies.

Feminists fought against this by trying to suppress evidence showing that half of domestic violence is done by women, by threatening the researchers with bomb threats, death threats, etc. Modern, younger feminists are doing it as well.

And sadly, they were successful in this effort of propaganda. For decades, and continuing today, violent men are (rightfully) convicted and punished by the state, while violent women are left to freely terrorize and harm their partners.

The feminist definition of domestic violence has skewed arrest and prosecution philosophies, resulting primarily in having only male batterers criminally pursued.

Men want female rapists to be arrested, charged, and convicted with rape. In Western countries, women are rarely punished when raping men, due to the biased legal system. In some countries, women cannot be punished when raping men, since rape is defined as a male-perpetrated crime.

Feminists fought against this in India, arguing that “there is a physicality [in] rape” and that it would make things “more complicated for judges.”

Feminists fought against this in Israel, claiming that changing the law would result in men filing false rape claims.

Men don’t want to be thrown in jail because they lost their jobs and temporarily cannot pay child support.

Feminists fought against this, trying to lower the amount to $5000 before a man is guilty of a felony for not paying child support. If a man loses a decent-paying job, he will now be a felon, go to jail, lose his right to vote, AND be unable to find future jobs—if he cannot regain an equal-paying job within a few months.

If there is a patriarchy, feminists are the ones helping to uphold it with their constant portrayal of women as weak in the West.

Anonymous asked -- I always thought the idea of Nice Guys was kind of dumb. Feminists mention constantly that they're ungrateful for wanting a romantic relationship with a woman (whoops, I mean sex, men only want sex, never romance, KK?) Do you honestly expect a guy to jump in the air and yell "YAAAAS!" after you tell him "Oh, you have romantic feelings for me? Well I'm sorry, I see you as a friend," I don't think men only want sex from women - they have feelings too.

What I love is that you didn’t reply to anyone who debunked you.

I don’t owe shit to you or your ilk of third wave feminists, OP.

"You don’t support feminism? Drop the rights you got because of us!"

Yeah, thing is that modern day feminists have done close to nothing. Any rights were obtained by first and second wavers, which brats like you are not. 

Give credit where credit is due, cuz people like you certainly don’t deserve it, OP.

Remember: Women’s rights are only for women who agree with us

a man called me sexist for saying women were the dominant gender

ha ha

How is that not sexist?

women can’t be sexist against men
women can’t be sexist against men WOMEN CAN’T BE SEXIST AGAINST MEN

Uh yeah. They can.

LA LA LA I CAN’T HEAR YOU I’M JUST GONNA SCREAM IT OVER AND OVER

please tell me the last time a woman was sexist against you

the last time you were catcalled

That’s not sexist. That’s just rude. And happens to both sexes. 

the last time someone of the opposite sex made you fear for your life simply because you were the opposite gender

I’m terrified of spiders, and spiders can kill me. Whelp, guess spiders are oppressing me!

Fear and risk are not the same thing.

please tell me about how men were oppressed for thousands of years and are continuing to be oppressed around the world

Being expected and even forced to die because someone higher on the food chain said so (and don’t even try and pull that “BUT MENZ DO IT TO MENZ” crap, cuz when women are sexist to one another, it’s still sexism; it’s no different when men do it) (also, don’t pull that cuz there have been plenty of women who have done it, too). Being expected to put their lives on the line in order to protect those who they’re supposedly oppressing. Expected to and, in this day and age, legally obligated to support those they oppress, even when the marriage has ended. Can legally be strapped down and have part of their body chopped off mere hours after being born. Getting longer jail sentences for the same crimes because they’re men. No resources when it comes to rape or domestic violence. 

And that’s just what’s coming off the top of my head.

What would you call that?

oh wait none of those ever happened goodbye

You’re willfully blind, so just stop.

"Why aren’t you a feminist?"

Anonymous asked -- The one about the different teas kind of baffles me. I mean, they're clearly shown with different things on them (different herbs in the picture), so the implication would be different things for each, right? Also, I lost it at "Boner Tea". 

The common consensus seems to be that, if a product is specifically marketed towards men one specific gender, it’s an attempt to distance themselves from other genders, because femmephobia, misogyny, yadda yadda. And this line of thinking completely ignores that men and women are different

It’s like those jeggings (or leggings, I’m not completely sure which it was) that were bashed because DAH MENZ HAEV SUCH FRAGEEL EGOES… and it seemed like people forgot that men and women have different body structures (like women typically having wider hips and such). 

Honestly, these people might as well be complaining about the variety of shampoos for different hair types.
