this is female privilege

ifoundjesuson:

Men’s rights more like “I lack the ability to consider life outside of my experiences of wanting my dick wet 24/7”

This self-centred, sex-crazed straight cis male stereotype is actually the exact reason why we need to be talking about men’s issues. 

Our image of ‘men’ has been reduced to hyper-masculinity, and that has serious implications for all genders. Don’t dismiss it.  

Further proof that men can’t be raped

workersunited101:

No matter how many times I repeat it people will always tell me I’m wrong, according to the FBI (here) they exclude men from their definition of rape, why? BECAUSE MEN CANNOT BE RAPED, NOW FUCK OFF FEDORA WEARING MRA DUDEBROS.

I have a sneaking suspicion that this is a troll blog. Sort of an IgnitionPoint copycat, if you will.

So this is just another platform for me to say that troll blogs are dangerous, in that they intentionally provide distorted information with the intention of lols, but really, they end up being a safe-haven for people who are hurt, angry and bitter. 

Please stop whatever ‘social experiment’ you’re doing. This sort of internet research is the lowest form of data collection possible. Your experiment means nothing and hurts people. Just quit it.

This is what we need the MRM for, because feminism isn’t going to do a thing about it.

I’m sketchy about this information. ‘Education’ is such a broad term - What sort of education? Where? Why? How?
I legit cannot read the sources because they’re so small, but from what I can make out, it just lists some big name organisations without actually sourcing the information (if you can read the sources, please check em out and add to this post!)
However, based on what I know about gender and education, my prediction is that this graphic is based on educational attainment. In westernised societies, women are more likely to obtain high school and tertiary qualifications than men. As to how this translates into the workforce is a complex affair, but if we’re going to stick to simplicity, I would agree that women in most of those blue nations are more educated than men.

Thank you :)

lol MRA’s.

I think this is an unfair comparison.
'No littering' is a general message. To everyone. Any time. Any where. If you don't litter, this message wouldn't make you think twice.
Where as, you cannot deny that 90% of the time the ‘Don’t rape’ message comes heavily loaded, targeted at men with the implication that rape is something done by men, to women, and that all men have an equal hand in the matter.
Now, I make a point of not littering. So if someone decided to give me a lecture about littering, well yeah, I’d probably get a little pissed because you know, either you tell everyone the same message or you talk to people who actually litter. You might even see me say things like ‘What about that guy who’s littering?’ ‘How about YOU don’t litter?’, and ‘You enviro-freaks are taking this too far’. Sound familiar?
You can’t blame people for getting defensive when the message is being used to target the wrong people and minimize how the issue impacts them.

I've always tried to educate myself as much as possible about social issues but when it comes to the internet it's often like being attacked by a million angry people shouting about different things. This blog is very refreshing and helpful in the way that it talks about gender issues intelligently, without the rage incited blind attacking that most people venture into. So thank you for that

Thank you for your feedback :)

I try my best to talk about these issues sensibly, but this is the internet and this blog is not without it’s guilts! I give readers enough credit to make their own judgements about these issues and I’m glad that we could provide you with some helpful information. Keep reading into it, and be sure to submit if you find anything you think is important.

Just saw a bit on TV about the rise in single mothers undergoing IVF.

Within this they had a statement from the 90’s that expressed outrage about how the role of fathers was being minimised (an understandable concern, in my opinion)
There was also a statement that addressed that criminals are more likely to come from single parent homes (a somewhat de-contextualised fact, but a fact none the less)

The bit on TV then went on to paint these statements as complete bigotry…… Oh? So concerns for the future of children is bigotry?

I don’t care if women want to be single mothers - some women are just born mothers and never really find someone to raise a  child with, I get that, fine, but don’t then turn around and make out that men and fathers are unnecessary aspects of a child’s life while denying the facts about single parent households.

Debunk Feminism

lady-of-anti-feminism:

I got alot of this from the amazing oratorasaurus   as well as other amazing anti fems. I will add as I go along.

"The Wage Gap"

Domestic Violence

Rape Culture

Mens Issues

Female Priveilge

Feminists being horrible

While I do not believe in anti-feminism and don’t feel that addressing these issues in any way ‘debunks’ feminism, I do believe the above links and information are really important!

Please browse at your leisure :)

"Male issues are just the Patriarchy backfiring!  All female privileges are due do the Patriarchy backfiring!"

Okay either the Patriarchy just doesn’t exist anymore or it’s so broken that you really can’t act like it’s this awful, overbearing powerstructure that means women can’t get anywhere and men always get what they want.  Because if it were then not only would men have no problems at all but women wouldn’t even be able to speak let alone criticise.

Rephrasing issues men have to be about women, and/or blaming women’s issues on the Patriarchy, just proves to me and everyone else that a) you can’t not see women as victims and b) you think women are so weak that they can’t beat a seriously broken, malfunctioning system that has apparently weakened men and strengthened women (respective to the very first sentence).

Stop blaming the Patriarchy for everything and start realising that men have issues irrispective of women and women do have some privileges - which, as I keep getting told, “isn’t a bad thing”, so why act like it is?

can’t believe this is even real. wtf?

I really hope this isn’t real.

A big part of this blog’s message is that recognising the issues/achievements of one group does not some how take attention away unduly from another group.

People need to leave these events that focus on women alone, but by the same token, there needs to be times where we can think about men’s history, men’s health, men’s issues and male achievement without it being labelled as sexist, privileged and unnecessary.
