Goodbye

I know I’m terrible about keeping this blog updated, but my absences have gotten longer and longer, and my stays shorter and shorter.

I’ve decided to give up and abandon this blog.

I’ve thought several times about simply deleting it, but I still occasionally get positive messages about it, and I may return someday when I’m in a better position in life.

Reading hateful SJ whining and seeing these ‘not all men’ memes has made me progressively angrier as time has gone on. I just don’t have the time or mental stamina anymore to sit down and trawl through the feminism tag for an hour or two every day.

So, I’m going to leave this blog as it stands. I really don’t know if I’ll ever come back to it or not. I might feel up to it someday, but by then, it probably won’t be relevant anymore. I just can’t tell right now.

I’m genuinely sad to go; I’ve been doing this for almost two years now. It’s been fun (mostly), but I just can’t do it anymore.

Goodbye everyone.

I don’t really understand what you’re asking, but I don’t hate feminism.

Hey, OP, can you name a single major occasion where feminism has actually fought to remove a right that women have over men, or to grant said rights to men?

Just one?

Ever?

Last Thoughts

theseclippedwings:

The existence of #YesAllWomen has left me feeling completely disgusted and drained.  I find the whole campaign offensive, but I just lack the energy to do anything about it.

Overall, it is depressing.  I’m depressed.

That’s been the case for a while and I began pulling away and making changes, but it has been hard.  #YesAllWomen is a huge slap in my face.  I think that’s because the Social Justice movement as it’s seen on Tumblr has made an obvious appearance in one of my favorite Social Media outlets…twitter.

And it’s not a good thing.

I wish to gods I don’t believe in that I could have the energy to stand up to these people, but as I have learned here…what’s the point?  It serves nothing.

Those who spout out how it’s “not our job to educate you” are clearly just saying such because they outright refuse to have any sort of dialog with anyone who has a different viewpoint.  Going as far as to label people as white, straight, and male when they aren’t.  It truly shows the absurdity of these people.

But hey.  I am a stubborn asshole myself.  That’s why I kept trying to talk, yell, and scream at these people as well.  I refuse to live in a world of segregation.  I refuse to live in a world where women are apparently inherently weak and fearful…because #NoNOTAllWomen live in fear!

I refuse to live in a world where certain brands of racism and sexism are okay.  Where certain forms of bigotry is okay and even celebrated. 

And to do so ultimately means cutting that toxicity out.  Because when I leave the internet, I find wonderful women who think “teach men not to rape!” is absurd.  Wonderful women who agree that not all men are terrible and/or violent people.  Wonderful women who think claiming men to be oppressors is wrong and inaccurate.  Wonderful women who fucking get it.

I need to make a better effort to keep this bigotry and toxic thinking away from me.

That’s all I am trying to say.

I almost skipped over this post. I’m glad I didn’t.

I really encourage everyone to read this article. It is a great highlight of the differences between men and women, as well as saying a lot of the things I talk about. I really have nothing but respect for this woman.

Dude I say it all the time. I’m so glad I’m a woman. I’d explode if I was a dude. Even more so with people like the ones on tumblr who exist and probably want me dead for just being alive.

Pft. Being a man is the best thing ever.
I mean like, I’m white so I get all the privileges.
I don’t have to worry about being attacked on the street, or getting raped, and I only have to do 76% of the work women do, it’s awesome.

I have the feeling that the person above me is a women just saying

Nope, I’m a dude.

regardless of the picture and the comments above, Norah Vincent’s book self-made man is definitely worth reading and helps women understand the male mindset. the picture is a little misleading though… she didn’t have that breakdown because maleness is harder, but because going from female challenges to male challenges is a difficult transition, and ultimately she was more comfortable in her female body (though she did describe maleness as uncomfortable - “like wearing a suit of armor ten sizes too big” - due to, as she writes, their heightened insecurity and heavy pressure to hide that insecurity)

Always remember that women who call themselves feminists will be accused so many times of being man-haters, but when a man kills women just for being women, he is called mentally unwell, and a madman rather than a woman-hater or misogynist.

What’s the difference between “men only become MRAs because they couldn’t get laid” and “women only become feminists because they couldn’t get laid?”

One is accepted as truth by Tumblr and the other is called misogynistic.

BREASTS ARE SEXUAL ORGANS

BREASTS ARE SEXUAL ORGANS

BREAST ARE SEXUAL ORGANS

BREASTS ARE FUCKING SEXUAL ORGANS!!

WE DONT LET MEN WALK AROUND WITH THEIR DICKS OUT BECAUSE ITS A SEXUAL ORGAN!!

GET THE FUCK OVER IT YOUR FEMALE BREASTS ARE

  • SEXUAL
  • FUCKING
  • ORGANS!!!

source: X

Ahem.

BREASTS ARE NOT SEXUAL ORGANS YOU INCONSIDERATE DICK!

Breasts are mammary organs, meaning their true and primary purpose is to nurse babies.

I’ll repeat that for the slow people in the class, you warthog-faced buffoon.

Breasts are mammary sacks. They are meant to feed babies, just like a cow’s udder. They aren’t sexual organs. They aren’t classified as such in biology texts (certainly none of the ones I checked out to answer this post)

Men have breasts, you pile of refuse. Their breasts are smaller than women’s, but they possess the same mammary glands and, properly stimulated, can produce milk. Men can get breast cancer. They can develop larger breasts due to excessive hormones. Their breasts are exactly like a women’s breast, except that since their testicles produce testosterone in high degree, they don’t have enough female hormones in their bodies to start lactating.

So, you pile of putrescence, you’re probably thinking, “If breasts aren’t sex organs then how come guys get horny looking at them and women get turned on by playing worth them, huh?”

The answers to both are so terribly simple that you might just be able to follow them if you pay attention, pig.

Men are enticed by breasts because they’re not allowed to see them. Women are sensitive because stimulation triggers two responses - bonding hormones and lactation.

In case you’re too simple to get this, I’ll break it down further for you. In cultures where breasts are viewed daily, they don’t do much to get a guy hot and bothered. There are hundreds of paintings from the renaissance period and earlier depicting women nursing babies, especially images of the Blessed Virgin nursing Christ, and none of these have ever been considered provocative, because that’s what boobs are for. Meanwhile, in cultures where everyone from baby sister to great-great grandma walk around topless because the weather will kill them otherwise, dudes don’t get raging erections every time they see a breast. They don’t find boobs enticing the way men do in America, where boobs are considered shameful and need to be hidden.

As for women getting aroused by their boobs being played with, you brainless donkey, a woman’s body responds to get nipples bring touched by flooding her body with bonding hormones that help her attach to get babies - you know, the people her breasts are actually supposed to be used by - and hormones that get her glands making milk. Also, please note that many women with large breasts don’t feel any stimulation when fondled, meaning they aren’t sensitive enough to get off on having their boobs played with.

Do me a favor and GET THE FUCK OVER YOURSELF YOU PURITANICAL ASS! My breasts are NOT SEXUAL ORGANS. They are lactation organs designed for my use and my baby’s use. Not for any man’s use or pleasure.

You inconsiderate space herpe.

I really could not have put this better myself.

Like I get why men can benefit from feminism through, changing the gender roles, sexual norms, and sexist practices that limit you and punish you when whenever you deviate from them. But what I don’t understand is MRM? Can someone explain because the way I’m seeing it is as a backlash to the feminist movement, and in all honesty it sounds like garbage to me. Sorry. 

You see it as a backlash to feminism because that’s what “feminists” (note the quotes) have told you.

Mens Rights Activism is just that, advocacy for men’s rights, because men are at a disadvantage in lots of places. MRA is complimentary to feminism— or, it would be if “feminists” would let it.

MRA and feminism have the same overall goals, with slightly different focuses. MRA tries to address some of the issues many people have with feminism, namely the focus on women. Feminism focusing on women isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but other groups need representation as well.

"Feminists" don’t like the MRA because it takes the focus away from them. Because it detracts from the "women are the only group oppressed EVER THE END" mentality.

Now, what I mean by feminists in this context is more the SJ crowd. The people that call themselves feminist but who very much are not feminists. I would imagine that any reasonable feminist would actually see the value of MRA, and accept that it’s an equally valid movement, and a nice compliment to feminism.

I think many feminists have a hard time seeing where men are disadvantaged, and where they need representation, and that’s understandable. Feminists claim that feminism represents both men and women, but in my opinion, there is support for men, but it’s rather weak.

Likewise, men have a hard time seeing all the ways women are disadvantaged.

Feminism and MRA need each other. The constant fighting between the two groups is a huge hindrance to the progress we could make together.

.

Note: I’m not an MRA or a feminist, so if I’ve misrepresented either group, feel free to tell me!

Dear fellow women:

In my opinion, it is generally NOT a good idea to use anything involving your menstrual cycle (save for birth control pills maybe) to make a political statement.

Because that’s just disgusting. Nobody wants to see your blood.

Dear fellow period-having people:

Disregard the blatant internalized misogyny going on here and do whatever the fuck you want to with your menstrual cycle. Paint with it. Make a face mask. Bake some cookies. Help some lucky person earn their red wings. Put someone under a love spell~~ (with their consent!!!) Bank it.  Save it in a jar.

Do whatever you want with it because it’s yours and you made it all by yrself and you have every right to bring it into the political spectrum if that’s what you chose to do.

Waah waah

Listen you stupid fuck, period blood, and blood in general, is a biohazard. You leak that shit all over or smear anywhere and you’re looking for a potential claim of terrorism, among other things, and serve jail time or fines. Even as an artist, that shit ain’t cool and just not right because it can cause harm and damage. It’s also a good way to transmit shit you didn’t even know you had or could be transmitted.

It isn’t shaming or muh-soggy-knees… it’s fucking simple logic and deceny.

No one wants your vagoo tomato juice all over.

I mean, should people start shitting everywhere and ejaculate anywhere they wish in public?

Blood may be a biohazard but penis waving fuckers get a pass of pissing in certain public places and no one bats an eye…

>Trying to into science

Disregarding the fact that public urination is illegal in a lot of places, it’s still not as hazardous as blood unless it contains, y’know, blood. The more you know.

Fun fact, urine is sterile.

I need feminism because we raise our young girls without teaching them about how to do important things such as change a tire, fix things around the house or change oil

and then we turn around and mock the women they grow up to be as being dumb and useless cause they dont know…

Definitely. I did learn how to do the check writing, balancing, basic car maintainence, but my sister (different dad) didnt.

Obviously my experience is not everyones, but my sister definitely has the mentality of being weaker and letting men do “guy things” for her.

It would be nice if schools took on alot of the responsibilities of parents… because it seems to me many many kids are brought up in homes with parenys that dont know what they are doing, and its very sad to me that the kids end up suffering for their parents lack of parenting.

I personally grew up in very poor conditions with my mother, while at the same time had the privilege of a dad who taught me alot… though he was very emotionaly unavailable

Huh, I had a very similar experience as a child. I had to learn to do all the housework the hard way because my mother wouldn’t do it (and dad didn’t live with us). My dad was also rather unavailable and didn’t teach me a whole lot. I’m so glad I got out of that mess…

While I don’t dispute that there are gender stereotypes at play here, the big problem is that we don’t teach ANY of our youth these things.

Kids fresh out of high school are woefully unprepared for adult life. My boyfriend had no idea how to write a check. I don’t know how to do my taxes, or how to do laundry without shrinking my freaking jeans.

There needs to be a greater focus on teaching our youth how to be functioning adults when they leave high school. That involves house and car maintenence, and financial stuff, all the little things that you have to do to keep your life from falling apart.

"Not all men" because we should ridicule and belittle men who invoke the "not all feminists" argument.

I’ve got an idea, how about we not shame and ridicule people who point out that you’re making broad, sweeping statements that…

I got it from reading your posts, I really like your blog!

I was thinking alot about your positions on feminism and other equality movements. Lables seem to be a double edged sword. On one hand they are a unifying force which are nessisary for change on a broad scale, a banner to rally under…. on the other, they create something that can ve used as a sheild for close minded people to latch on to and exploit, or to solidify their stances, and imply that they havevthe backing of a large group.

The majority (I hope) of Feminsts seem to be quick to denounce man haters in a general ambiguous way when they get pointed out in a broad, general way, by people who dont like feminists as a rule. Its important to defend the ideals in that way, but much more important is to denounce that kind of “feminist” at the source, and to call them out directly.

I think one issue is that people hesitate to tell an extreem person that calls themself a feminist that they are wrong, for fear of being seen as “going against” the whole. Thats unfortunate.

I agree with you, but unfortunately the denouncement of self-proclaimed misandrists by other feminists (that I’ve seen, anyway) has all been of the “that’s not feminism” or “they’re not a feminist” variety.

The fact that these people exist, call themselves feminists, and think that feminism is all about putting down and hating all men ever is rather worrying, and I think indicates a much larger problem within feminism.

I think many do hesitate to say anything to the SJ idiots, which is rather unfortunate. That the SJ group exists at all is just beyond my understanding. The SJ movement in itself is rather troubling, and that so many call themselves feminists is even more so, and just another symptom of the issues with feminism.

EDIT: My gripe is that feminists use “they’re not a feminist” to just sweep under the rug that these people indicate a very large problem. We should point out to those “feminists” that they are, in fact, not feminists, which I think is what you’re saying?
