Someone get this guy a fucking medal.

They made birth control for men. However it never got past the clinical testing stage because its side effects were things like “moodiness, extreme cramping, hunger, increased sexual drive” and were considered INHUMANE.

what the fuck do they think women go through every goddamn month seriously

I’M SORRY MEN CAN’T HANDLE MENSTRATION

men are pussies

Wow, except that the ACTUAL reason there is no male birth control pill is due to scientific and commercial reasons  coupled with resistance from feminism.

In fiscal year 2015 the United States Government will grant Two Hundred and Twenty Two Million in Grants to Combat Violence against Women.
During that same fiscal year men will be significantly more likely to be murdered, assaulted, and mutilated. They will be more likely to die on the job. They will be more likely to suicide. They might be more likely to be raped. We don’t know. We don’t count. And they will be subject to roughly half of all acts of domestic violence.
No money is earmarked to benefit males. None.
Meanwhile organizations such as NNEDV.ORG lists men not getting a job as a form of domestic violence.
Of course, men are also the victims of domestic violence… just read about it here:

Does… does that seem a little… biased to you? Just a little? Maybe? Sorta?
NAH!
Fortunately it has neat links… like Women’s Law. Which has, if you dig a little, a state by state guide on how to best get custody of the children.
This includes such handy step by step guides as “How to sue your abuser" and even includes a handy manual on how to maximize your alimony payments., this comes with an additional primer on what to say to the Judge when questioned as well as such useful tips as telling the Judge your husband hasn’t been helping with the bills lately… which again constitutes economic abuse. I wish I was making this up. And while adultery in and of itself does not guarantee a good divorce settlement… framing it as Cruel and Inhumane treatment does!
Additionally if your husband refuses to have sex with you for a year or more you can sue him for that too!
Careful though, it’s not as effective if your husband is sick or dying.
But if you’re smart you can straight up throw your husband out of the house and then use the court to order him to support you while you fuck other men and you’re still married! Huzzah!
Also… Not only do women receive child support until the children are TWENTY ONE FUCKING YEARS OLD (in New York)…. they are urged to demand child support even if the husband is currently on assistance, in prison or homeless.
So… who exactly RUNS this upstanding and unbiased bastion of good in the world?

If you’re a woman.

Alright… so there’s a Feminist running it… it’s not like you actually have to BE a Feminist to work for this… OH SHIT…

I… I can’t go on… just so much awful…

I really liked this blog. It was far more well thought-out compared to all those blogs nowadays that basically are all like "KILL T3H MENZ!!!!ONE!!1" I posted here under another username, just sayin'

It’s always nice to hear that people think we are reasonable sounding around here. Thank you for your support!

Patriarchy backfiring on men is not sexism against men.

There is no such thing as the patriarchy backfiring, because it as a system is a means for controlling society, not just women.

Patriarchy backfires when it turns a blind eye the rape and emotional/physical abuse of little boys who are supposed to grow into the dominant class… I could say more but obviously patriarchy doesn’t only control women. That’s not related to what I said at all.

I still disagree, because men aren’t ‘supposed to be’ or ‘meant’ to end up the benefactors of patriarchy. Emasculating, demeaning, abusing and mentally damaging men is literally part of the regime. I’m saying this because we really must understand that ‘Patriarchy’ is not a ‘all male benefit system’, and men are molded into their places into it, therefore meaning that they are forced into its ways, restricted within it, and punished for going against it as well. Patriarchy teaches all of us that men should be strong and emotionless, that they are more reasonable, but that they are also disposable cannon fodder. That since they are the stronger sex, they cannot be hurt. That since they are entitled to sex, they always want it an cannot be raped. That since they are supposed to be physically strapping they must made to be strong, made to endure pain. Since they should be more level headed they are taught not to have emotions, and therefore they must have their need for emotional expression neglected. I could go on. It’s not a ‘blind eye’, it’s the full intent.

Reblogging for those of you that have not seen this.

What some feminists don’t get is that treating men as The One True Menace is not problematic because "ooh poor innocent men who don’t do anything bad and are treated with suspicion why don’t you think of teh menz"

It’s problematic because by reinforcing the view that only men are dangerous and potential abusers it directly helps female abusers with getting away with it and hinders their victims from being taken seriously.

And before you start going all “buhuuu man tears” on me, guess what? Female abusers can and do abuse females too. 

Abuse, of any nature, be it sexual or physical or psychological, is not a gendered issue. Stop trying to make it into one.

This came up on my Facebook and started a very lengthy (and quite frankly, positive) discussion. Thought I’d share.

Alright guys, so my best friend’s family needs help. For the sake of their privacy and general wariness of revealing personal information, I’m not going to post names or faces. But recently, my best friend’s younger brother came out to his family that he’s a boy, and though they may not have completely understood everything, they’re helping him to transition from life as a little girl to life as a little boy. They’re actually doing REALLY AWESOMELY with it, and I’m really really happy that they’re such an accepting family, because all of them are doing their best to make sure he feels safe and respected! I’m super excited, and they’ve even extended it to me, so we’re all going through all these gender things together, and go to groups and read books and explore medical options to make sure he grows up with the proper hormones.

But their dad, who is divorced from their mom, is being really really horrible about all of this, and his new wife is absolutely awful. I won’t talk much about her, but we had to restrain ourselves from punching her lights out in the waiting room of a children’s hospital when she told us to stop “trying to make her into a boy because it’s not right”. Basically, their dad and his wife are horrible about this, and so their mom is trying to get sole custody of them.

They don’t have all that much money, but this is really really important. If you can’t donate, please pass this along, because I really don’t like the environment he goes to when he has to go to his dad’s house.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PASS THIS ALONG THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT! THERE IS MORE INFO ON THE PAGE IF YOU NEED IT.

!!!!!!!

PLEASE pass this along and signal boost the hell out of it, PLEASE do your best to take a stand against abusive parents who refuse to recognize children’s gender identities
