i swear, sometimes i just want to quit this website because of how ignorant some people are

This is why 4chan doesn’t even need to make much effort to destroy the SJW from  tumblr. They destroy themselves.

"Boys will be boys" is never an excuse for violence against women. Saying “Boys will be boys” is only telling young boys that they can get away with doing whatever they want to women, that they’re entitled to do it because they’re male. We need to wipe this phrase from our glossary, if you ask me. We need to start holding people accountable for their actions.

~Anna

keep in mind, thanks to Feminists like yourself India doesn’t recognize that those “boys that will be boys” can actually be the victim of rape.

Go Feminism!

women are gangraped in india every fucking day & the guys who do it get away with it. your idea of feminism is wrong.

Which had zero to do with the point I made… unless you’re coming out in agreement with their position that men not be protected by rape laws?

I bet you’re a Feminist…

well..

“According to Shahid Khan, a professor at the Aga Khan University in Pakistan: “Women are considered the property of the males in their family irrespective of their class, ethnic, or religious group. The owner of the property has the right to decide its fate. The concept of ownership has turned women into a commodity which can be exchanged, bought and sold”.”

Violence against man - It is a just cause but maybe it is not the just cause the original post was aiming for?  The truth is female in India are deemed as second class citizens. I mean, restore the honor of unmarried girl by a forced marriage is a thing there, EVEN if she was raped. I guess one could argue, that with extreme poverty, religious violence and a lot of caste related violence maybe there are other problems we should address first in order to solve that one. But that was also not the point you were making, was it?

So I searched about this “battle” tumblr vs 4chan and this is what google directed me to. Can’t say that I feel more enlightened.

…do see this (article about 4chan raids). Don’t forget the video.

No, this is why women survive longer than men.

this hurt to look at

actually it’s true. in sociology we learn about the fact that men participate in more risky behavior to prove masculinity and this is a way the patriarchy hurts men and pat of the reason the life expectancy is longer for women

Jesus Christ, I wasn’t going to reblog this but then that last one was just so WHY WOULD YOU that I had to

This has fuck all to do with “Patriarchy" and everything to do with natural selection.

Men that were willing to take more risks were more likely to be selected as mating partners by women. This is *still true*.

Taking risks tend to provide greater rewards on the whole, if not for the guy that dies trying then for the guy that succeeds.

For the dumber children at home it goes like this.

Dave and Frank are single men that are in all other ways equal. Each desires the hand of fair Marjory. Dave starts a business, it succeeds, he gets rich. Marjory, seeing the benefits of a wealthy Dave instead of an impoverished Frank selects Dave as her mating partner.

But let’s suppose Dave tried to start a business and it failed catastrophically and destroyed him financially and left him disabled. Only then does Marjorie then select Frank.

In other words Frank has a vested interest in two things… Either succeeding on a grander scale than Dave… or causing Dave to fail.

This is why all men everywhere are in some form of competition with one another.

Because that competition directly benefits women. Because the failures are discarded to die alone, and the winners are used for power and provision.

This is so deeply ingrained into the male psyche that it is instinctual at this point. If I don’t risk X, if I don’t accomplish Y then she won’t love me.

This is why many men are so terribly afraid of their female partners succeeding. Because he has been taught, from birth, that his entire value to her depends heavily on what he can offer her financially. So when she supersedes him his self esteem plummets.

This is why guys take risks. This is why guys “show off”. Because those that don’t are quietly forgotten and die alone.

And in another solution, Marjory tries to start a business, somewhat succeeds but ends up more tired and less fair and both man loose interest on her and go out to have beers together. Meanwhile, after finding herself some monetary stability Marjory finds Kent a partner that respects her and her values, and whom she respects, and together they start a family.

Years in marriage bliss pass by (bliss, with its ups and downs, and some taboo subjects like the way Kent’s family is dealing with Kent’s mother illness, or the way Marjory’s family is constantly creating unnecessary dramas at every family reunion) the couple discovers Marjory has pancreatic cancer and little time to live.

We are in the hospital now, Marjory, once fair and young, lays sickly in her hospital bed, in one side, Kent, in the other, her pregnant daughter (who by the way married a boy named Frank). Marjory feels herself fading and thinks about her life. She remembers Dave and Frank and their attempts to woe her, wondering whatever happened to them. She thinks about all the times Kent held her in his arms, especially when she lost her first baby. She remembers the first time she held her daughter so small and unaware of the big world outside. And above all these memories one stands out the most, the memory of her father gently and unwavering holding her hand while crossing the street. The sense of belonging of those simpler times. Holding Kent’s hand, she gently whispers what would be her final words:

- It was a fun ride, wasn’t it?

10 Simple Words Every Girl Should Learn

These behaviors, the interrupting and the over-talking, also happen as the result of difference in status, but gender rules.

  • It’s not hard to fathom why so many men tend to assume they are great and that what they have to say is more legitimate. It starts in childhood and never ends. Parents interrupt girls twice as often and hold them to stricter politeness norms. Teachers engage boys, who correctly see disruptive speech as a marker of dominant masculinity, more often and more dynamically than girls.
  • For example, male doctors invariably interrupt patients when they speak, especially female patients but patients rarely interrupt doctors in return. Unless the doctor is a woman. When that is the case, she interrupts far less and is herself interrupted more.
  • This is also true of senior managers in the workplace. Male bosses are not frequently talked over or stopped by those working for them, especially if they are women; however, female bosses are routinely interrupted by their male subordinates.
  • As adults, women’s speech is granted less authority. We aren’t thought of as able critics or as funny.
  • Men speak moremore often, and longer than women in mixed groups (classroomsboardroomslegislative bodiesexpert media commentary and, for obvious reasons religious institutions.)
  • Indeed, in male-dominated problem solving groups including boards, committees, and legislatures, men speak 75% more than women, with negative effects on decisions reached. That’s why, as researchers summed up, “Having a seat at the table is not the same as having a voice.”
  • Even in movies and television, male actors engage in more disruptive speech and garner twice as much speaking and screen time as their female peers.
  • Listserve topics introduced by men have a much higher rate of response.
  • On Twitter, people retweet men two times as often as women.

The best part though is that we are socialized to think women talk more. Listener bias results in most people thinking that women are hogging the floor when men are actually dominating. Linguists have concluded that much of what is popularly understood about women and men being from different planets, verbally, confuses “women’s language” with “powerless language.”

This preference for what men have to say, supported by men and women both, is a variant on “mansplaining.” The word came out of an article by writer Rebecca Solnit, who explained that the tendency some men have to grant their own speech greater import than a perfectly competent woman’s is not a universal male trait, but the “intersection between overconfidence and cluelessness where some portion of that gender gets stuck.” Solnit’s tipping point experience really did take the cake. She was talking to a man at a cocktail party when he asked her what she did. She replied that she wrote books, and she described her most recent one, River of Shadows: Eadweard Muybridge and the Technological Wild West.The man interrupted her soon after she said the word Muybridge and asked, “And have you heard about the very important Muybridge book that came out this year?” He then waxed on, based on his reading of a review of the book, not even the book itself, until finally a friend said, “That’s her book.” He ignored that friend (also a woman) and she had to say it more than three times before “he went ashen” and walked away. If you are not a woman, ask any woman you know what this is like, because it is not fun and happens to all of us.

Last week as I sat in a cafe, a man in his 60s stopped to ask me what I was writing. I told him, a book about gender and media and he said, “I went to a conference where someone talked about that a few years ago. I read a paper about it a few years ago. Did you know that car manufacturers use slightly denigrating images of women to sell cars? I’d be happy to help you.” After I suggested, smiling cheerily, that the images were beyond denigrating and definitively injurious to women’s dignity, free speech, and parity in culture he drifted off

In the wake of Larry Summers’ “women can’t do math” controversy several years ago, scientist Ben Barres wrote publicly about his experiences, first as a woman and later in life, as a male. As a female student at MIT, Barbara Barres was told by a professor after solving a particularly difficult math problem, “Your boyfriend must have solved it for you.” When several years after, as Ben Barres, he gave a well-received scientific speech, he overhead a member of the audience say, “His work is much better than his sister’s.”  Most notably, he concluded that one of the major benefits of being male was that he could now “even complete a whole sentence without being interrupted by a man.”

 Really, practice those ten words

“Stop interrupting me.” 

“I just said that.”

“No explanation needed.”

 

The link about “confusing women’s language with powerless language” is really interesting.

Oh my.

Men’s Issues

littlespacecase:

  • Societal expectations of masculinity
  • Societal expectations to provide for women
  • Men who are raped are more likely to remain silent and be dismissed or outright laughed at 
  • Little to no support for male victims of domestic abuse
  • Media portrayal of married men as weak morons

Not men’s issues

  • The friend zone
  • Women not dating you
  • "Fucking femnazis"

I would add:

Yes. I get why people feel the need to have guns to protect themselves. And I am happy I never felt that need because that means I have been lucky.

But can people realize why is it worrisome to make it even easier to have guns? Can’t we force people to have a psychological exam and you know, basic firearms training? You wanna have a gun? Great, but for you to exercise that right you have to do these tests every few years. Yeah, I know the bad guys will always find ways have guns, but at least we might be able to reduce the amount of idiots’ shooting off their penises. Isn’t that good enough?

How about some quotes?

"I feel that ‘man-hating’ is an honorable and viable political act, that the oppressed have a right to class-hatred against the class that is oppressing them." — Robin Morgan, Ms. Magazine Editor.

"I claim that rape exists any time sexual intercourse occurs when it has not been initiated by the woman, out of her own genuine affection and desire." — Robin Morgan

"To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he’s a machine, a walking dildo." — Valerie Solanas, Authoress of the SCUM Manifesto

"The male is a domestic animal which, if treated with firmness…can be trained to do most things." — Jilly Cooper, SCUM

"I want to see a man beaten to a bloody pulp with a high-heel shoved in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig." — Andrea Dworkin

"Q: People think you are very hostile to men. A: I am." — Andrea Dworkin

"Men who are unjustly accused of rape can sometimes gain from the experience." - Catherine Comins

"All men are rapists and that’s all they are" — Marilyn French, Authoress

"Men use the night to erase us." — Andrea Dworkin

"The annihilation of a woman’s personality, individuality, will, character, is prerequisite to male sexuality." — Andrea Dworkin

"Men love death. In everything they make, they hollow out a central place for death, let its rancid smell contaminate every dimension of whatever still survives. Men especially love murder. In art they celebrate it, and in life they commit it. They embrace murder as if life without it would be devoid of passion, meaning, and action, as if murder were solace, stilling their sobs as they mourn the emptiness and alienation of their lives."
— Andrea Dworkin 

"Men are rapists, batterers, plunderers, killers; these same men are religious prophets, poets, heroes, figures of romance, adventure, accomplishment, figures ennobled by tragedy and defeat. Men have claimed the earth, called it ‘Her’. Men ruin Her. Men have airplanes, guns, bombs, poisonous gases, weapons so perverse and deadly that they defy any authentically human imagination."
— Andrea Dworkin, Pornography: Men Possessing Women 

"On the Left, on the Right, in the Middle; Authors, statesmen, thieves; so-called humanists and self-declared fascists; the adventurous and the contemplative, in every realm of male expression and action, violence is experienced and articulated as love and freedom."
— Andrea Dworkin, Pornography: Men Possessing Women. 

"The institution of sexual intercourse is anti-feminist" — Ti-Grace Atkinson

Feminism is the theory, lesbianism is the practice.” — Ti-Grace Atkinson

"Rape is nothing more or less than a conscious process of intimidation by which all men keep all women in a state of fear" — Susan Brownmiller; Authoress of Against Our Will p.6

"When a woman reaches orgasm with a man she is only collaborating with the patriarchal system, eroticizing her own oppression." — Sheila Jeffrys

"Politically, I call it rape whenever a woman has sex and feels violated." — Catherine MacKinnon 

"All sex, even consensual sex between a married couple, is an act of violence perpetrated against a woman." — Catherine MacKinnon

"You grow up with your father holding you down and covering your mouth so another man can make a horrible searing pain between your legs."
— Catherine MacKinnon (Prominent legal feminist scholar; University of Michigan, & Yale.) 

"The more famous and powerful I get the more power I have to hurt men." — Sharon Stone; Actress

"Ninety-five percent of women’s experiences are about being a victim. Or about being an underdog, or having to survive… women didn’t go to Vietnam and blow things up. They are not Rambo."
— Jodie Foster; Actress - as quoted in The New York Times Magazine.


"And if the professional rapist is to be separated from the average dominant heterosexual (male), it may be mainly a quantitative difference."
— Susan Griffin, Rape: The All-American Crime. 

"The proportion of men must be reduced to and maintained at approximately 10% of the human race." — Sally Miller Gearhart, in The Future - If There Is One - Is Female.

Gross

Although I am pretty sure I would find something equaly idiotic and insulting if I searched for specific MRA quotes this here is depressingly hilarious.

My favourite one is the one about orgasms helping the patriarchal system. When you put it like that, I wouldn’t mind collaborating with the patriarchal system more often, Miss JeffrysGiggity.
