OMG. O. M. G. O. MG.
Hahahaha wtf of course not. Where I live you can’t throw a stick without hitting a Jew, I have many Jewish friends and even family. Fuck, I often feel more Jewish than I am Christian
Of course not. It’s all about the time you put into it. I know a woman who started dancing in her 40s, she’s better than I am because she actually keeps up with it and has the time to practice, etc.
I’m currently taking the first steps in embarking upon a bit of a ‘feminist project’ and I thought that before I did so I should probably brush up on some of my reading. I wasn’t expecting much from my local library but this is a bit disgraceful.
Alfreton is the town in Derbyshire that I live in. It has a population of roughly 22,000 and it’s library does not contain a single book searchable under the subject reading of feminism. There is not even a copy of pretty damn mainstream texts like The Second Sex or The Female Eunuch. How is this ok?
I am heartily disappointed
probably because you spelling “feminsim” wrong. it’s spelled “feminism”
next time try a little harder to be offended about nothing :)
Omg my lungs
Snow: You know, I always find it funny how much hyperbole they construct and proceed to freak out over. Like, according to 98% of feminists, aren’t MRAs just fedora-wearing, neckbearded, white men in the friendzone? Really goes to show how privileged and bloated these peoples’ victim complexes are, that they view a strawman image they manufactured in their own minds as terrorists.
"They’re shattering what feminism has worked so hard for"
Feminists in the UK have pushed for more lenient prison sentences for women (who already get half the time that their male counterparts do) and are even pushing for the removal of women’s prisons. Feminists in India successfully lobbied for a gender neutral rape law to be changed back into a “men rape, women are raped” definition. Feminists in the US of A have passed the Tender Years Doctrine, which is the reason behind the child custody bias towards women, and VAWA, which is based off the Duluth Model.
Meanwhile, a guy up in Canada committed suicide because he was unable to keep his shelter for abused men running. He tried to get government support. He got none. And that was just for one fucking shelter.
Those darned MRAs. They’re gonna ruin us all with all that political and social power and leverage they have!
No santa I dont want to sit on your lap it’s either your face or nothing
right-brain/left-brain theory is a crock of shit, given that you can give someone a hemispherectomy and have them retain all of their cognitive faculties.
but I suck at math.
I can do it, it’s just boring
Feminism is for equality, everyone.
Equality is being boo-hooing over that men don’t get as much recognization over their rape and assault despite that they are 1 in 33 while women are 1 in 6. Of course we’re going to have more hotlines, more awareness, and more shelters for women victims. Because STATISTICS. Men aren’t ignored. So stop crying because of it and look at it logically and realize that equality is dependent on statistics. *mic drop*
Could you tell us where you’re getting your statistics from? We have statistics to the contrary. Even if were were to take your statistics as accurate, the difference is roughly a factor of 5.5. Would you genuinely argue that men receive anywhere near 20% of the hotlines, awareness and shelters that women do for such crimes? If so, you might want to do a little research, the results might surprise you….
For that matter, how does any of this relate to the idea of “bathing in male tears”? If an individual is male, does that somehow make their suffering less important or more acceptable than the suffering of a female individual?
"Men aren’t ignored" yeah, that’s why the definition of rape was changed to include male rape victims just last year.
Why do you think the title is against feminism?
It says that I don’t need feminism. Why should that matter to anyone else?
