this is female privilege
What you said on the post about feminists walking down a side walk was amazing :)

Thank you ^^; but it’s just common sense really.

If you live in a westernised society, you really have no place comparing your neighbourhood to prison (on the basis of gender, that is).

This blog is absolutely amazing in pretty much every way. Blogs like this are the ones that should be more popular.

Thanks!

You can help by submitting and by continuing to challenge all gender barriers, not just those that impact women :]

This is so important.

If you fear having all your rights and liberties taken away, your family isolated from you and having your entire world narrowed to a grey building when you walk down the sidewalk, then your problems go way deeper than societal pressures. 
If this post is only specifically talking about rape, then it’s a pretty huge generalisation to say that it is what men fear most about prison and what women fear most on a daily basis. Please stop telling me how I (as a woman) feel. K thx bye.

Men’s rights activists (mra) hypocrisy I took note of today

anti-anti-feminist:

MRA: You know what’s unfair? Men working almost all dangerous jobs, and ending up getting maimed/killed while women never do.
Feminist: Okay, sure.
Feminist: You know what’s unfair? Women making less than men.
MRA: NO IT’S NOT. Women just tend to choose lower-paying jobs! Discrimination in the workplace isn’t even real!
Feminist: Wait a minute you realize that’s hypocr-
Men’s rights activist: LA LA LA LA LA

There isn’t actually hypocrisy here.

The hypothetical MRA points out that men tend to move into more dangerous lines of work and women tend to move into lower paying lines of work (which is an issue). They also say that discrimination in the form of women getting paid less for the same work isn’t real.

Both of these statements are true and do not contradict each other. 

rationalenquiry:

southern-feminism:

Antifem: The wage gap doesn’t exist!!!!

*shows them stats of wage gap*

Antifem: Women make less because of personal choices, duh!

Wait. So you’re admitting women make less? I thought the wage gap didn’t exist at all? You should all work on your wording tbh.

So you’re admitting it has nothing to do with discrimination?

Thank god that conversation’s over!

Got questioned on facebook what men and MRAs were actually doing to help men.

This was the first link I could find. Feel free to reblog and add other things you can find regarding the progression of men’s rights!

Vice.Com can go fuck themselves.
Read the article yourself->: Note the explicit absence of the word rape.
THEY ACTUALLY MADE UP NEW WORDS TO DESCRIBE SEX SO THEY WOULDN’T HAVE TO USE THE WORD RAPE TO DESCRIBE WHAT A WOMAN DOES TO A BOY.
Fuck everything about these people.

You fucktards need to know the whole story. Wanna now how the they got cought? The kid was bragging to his school mates about it. Not rape just sex so gtf over it

No. No. NO. People are focusing entirely on the wrong aspect of this story. This is not a case that should revolve around gender. The crime here is pedophilia, abuse of power, and statutory rape. 
I don’t care if the kid was down with it, or pursued it, or enjoyed it. No adult, regardless of gender, should be allowed to have sex with a child. 
As a teacher myself, this story absolutely disgusted me. Educators are supposed to protect their students not use them.

I fear Feminist educators nearly as much as I fear Female Teachers that rape little boys.
The female rapist will destroy one boy.
The Feminist Teacher works to destroy every boy she gets her hands on.
You know, for equality.
I mean think about it. Would you put a white supremacist in charge of the education of a class room full of black children?
Give that White Supremacist absolute power over what’s taught in that classroom and that fucker will convince those children they’re little more than monsters.
Which is what the Feminist teaching establishment in America has been doing for years now to boys.
Rape is terrible, no doubt about that. But so is growing up subject to an educational system staffed with people intent on ensuring you fail.

Reblogging this and putting it on /r/tumblrinaction. Every single person in this post is completely bonkers.

Yeah… you go do that.
I adore it when Feminists can’t argue facts they just go for the public shame angle.
I mean I have to wonder whose failing in *your* class room.
I betcha dimes to dollars it’s the boys. =)

1. No one is failing in my classroom. All 130+ students have a passing grade. The reason for this is because I put an intense amount of effort into working with my students one-on-one. If a kid starts having problems they’re gonna find themselves spending some time with me until we can figure out the problem. I do this with every student, regardless of gender.
2. I did reply to your original post but you ignored me. Here is what I said: 
“Wait, what? 
Feminist educators don’t try to destroy their male students… like, what are you talking about? This is such a ridiculous and extreme statement. I have literally never heard of anything like this happening, unless it’s been done in a highly exceptional case. If a teacher did this to her students it’s not simply because she’s feminist, it’s because she’s a shitty teacher.
The bad behavior of a few misinformed, radical, and, most importantly, loud feminists does not represent the majority of those who identify themselves as feminists. In fact, it doesn’t even demonstrate the flaws of feminism but rather the flaws of people who choose to use a positive ideology as a means to spread discrimination and anger.”
3. Do not imply that I am a bad teacher or that I would ever intentionally harm my students when you have no idea what goes on within my classroom.

Ahhh, well then dear educator… please educate me on… well… this.
Because it sure is a weird thing… wouldn’t you say?

Well, I didn’t study much primary education, but if this is happening then it’s not good - but I don’t think it’s happening as much as you would think. I am in no way defending any teachers that may do this, but it is true that boys in secondary education often times do not perform at the level of female students due mainly to maturity levels, lack of foresight, and poor attention spans. These are not because of societal structures though but brain development. So, a boy struggling in a class is not because of an inherent social structure developed to beat him down, it is because he has a shitty teacher. 
The teachers you mentioned are shitty teachers, but it’s not because they are feminists, it sounds more-so that they are either young teachers overwhelmed by their classrooms, or older teachers burnt out on their jobs. With this in mind this becomes less of an issue of specifically gender inequality, but one of the flawed education system that results in gender inequality.
That aside, the huge majority of gender inequality within education harms female students. This is not to belittle the boys who also suffer because of gender discrimination, but it is simply so. We also have to look outside of the 1st world to see that female oppression in education is a huge and obvious issue. 
It is a feminist’s job to advocate for both genders with the goal of ending systemic oppression (that would include education) and allow all genders an equal right to succeed or fail.

So males are behind IN EVERY SINGLE WESTERN NATION IN THE FUCKING WORLD.
But of course… girls have it worse.
and… it’s happening as much as I think?
Keep in mind, we’re not talking a little behind. We’re frequently talking *grade levels* behind.
Though I adore how you parade out Third World Sally in order to justify the VAST education gaps enjoyed by First World Susie.
And of course an educational system that favors girls so much that it produces a generation of boys that may be unemployable has nothing to do with Feminists that have been crushing any dissent or discussion that seeks to look into the issues boys face has nothing to do with it.
I mean EVEN FEMINISTS HAVE WRITTEN BOOKS ABOUT HOW FEMINISTS HAVE FUCKED OVER BOYS IN EDUCATION. <-This link is nearly fifteen fucking years old. That’s how long we’ve known about this.
But no, completely, NOTHING to do with Feminism.
Christ. How can you be so blind?

This is important

I support re-education on these matters, but I feel like these posters create a dichotomy - it’s either one or the other.

Why don’t we teach don’t leave your drink unattended AND don’t drug people?

Yelling ‘fire’ is more effective because people feel like they can actually help. Why don’t we teach people how to protect themselves AND how to protect others?

People hand out fake numbers because it saves face, not their lives. Why don’t we teach people to handle romantic rejection AND how to be respectful to other’s feelings?

But why the fuck are men being equated to M&Ms? Men aren’t some commodity you consume. Men are people you see, hear, smell, communicate with, not some faceless candy you’re taking a risk on. You get to pass judgement on them, and it’s ok to decide ‘maybe I don’t trust this guy’, just as there have been times I decide I don’t trust women. Flat out saying you do not trust AN ENTIRE FUCKING GENDER because you’ve been scared by infographic propoganda or isolated experiences is just plain wrong. Why don’t we all just demonstrate a little bit of stranger caution, regardless of the person’s gender?

Basically this whole post is about personal safety - it’s just common sense and less of a gendered issue than you think.  

I’ve been meaning to ask you all what you thought of Emma Watson’s speech.

I personally think it’s wonderful.

I like the general message of this post, but it continues to bother me that people think men are berated for being ‘like women’. No. Men are berated for not fitting into their gender roles. It has nothing to do with the world hating feminine behaviour and everything to do with the world hating behaviour that steps outside a socially defined norm.
