Well, let’s have a 21 year old woman explain it:
-Rape is not regretting a one night stand.-Rape is not when you change your mind afterwards.-Rape is not when a “creepy” guy tries to talk to you.-Rape doesn’t happen to just women, nor is it committed by just men.-Claiming a false rape for whatever reason is a crime and only makes matters worse for actual rape victims.
Rape is when one person forces another person to perform or engage in sexual acts, regardless of gender.

What if that grey-faced man with a $2 haircut was raped repeatedly in prison? Can he then tell you what rape is, or will you dismiss him based on his appearance? What about the 8 year-old boy that was repeatedly raped by an adult female 50 times? Can he tell you what rape is, or will you also dismiss him because he has a penis and therefore doesn’t know what rape is because after all, men can’t be raped.

it-goes-both-ways:

"Awaiting instructions" What is he a servant? A programmable machine built to protect and serve women? No life of his own to lead, no wants and needs of his own, just an empty shell.

This is like a visual representation of the role of men. Serve women; do what you’re told without question; don’t speak up when you are beaten or abused especially if it’s by a woman and do not under any circumstances even think about defending yourself; put your life on the line to intervene if you see a woman in a violent altercation (even if she’s the only one being violent, the man must be the problem, take him out); if you see a domestic dispute come to the woman’s aid even if they are both hitting each other and starts beating you for interfering, she’s in the right no matter what; if she accuses you of crime and you have a mountain of evidence that proves her wrong, you did it and you must pay. If there is nothing else to do for women for the day don’t watch telly, that’s sexist, don’t play games, they’re sexist, don’t listen to music, that’s sexist, await further instruction, do as you’re told, sit down, shut up and take it. If you can no longer perform to the required standard, there’s always the Smith and Wesson retirement plan.

"Violence against women is a tragic reality" Well at least people actually notice and give a toss. If no one cared we wouldn’t be hearing that half as many women are subject to violence as men and that’s evil and misogyny and we must make sure that only men are ever assaulted, then everything will be fine, we’d be hearing that nearly all men are assaulted at some point and they’d deny it ever happens to women at all. If you removed gender from the equation and treated all violence and the causes with the same seriousness for men as well as women, we’d have a lot less violence than we do now (which is already a hell of a lot lower than it used to be

Even if they genuinely do not give a flying monkeys about men, they should consider that most of the nasty violent males who go after women rather than the preferred target are being abused in childhood by women, a portion of those will grow up to enact the same violence they were subjected to onto females and a portion of those will go on to do it to males and so on. “The problems faced by men will go away once we destroy men patriarchy” is the very thing that will keep the violence going, you cannot solve the problem by only looking at part of it, there are still men abused by women, men abused by men, women abused by women that are going completely ignored because the feminists care less about protecting women and more about destroying men.

#men
A man. One man. Someone who doesn’t represent all men everywhere.

How do you know he’s an anti feminist? Did he actually say that he was anti feminist or is this just one of those typical assumptions?

How’s all that telling people not to do shit working out? I’m pretty sure those without a moral compass don’t give a fuck what you think they should or shouldn’t do.
WE ALSO LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT:
Tells men they can’t be the victims of sexual assault
Tells boys that when a woman rapes them its okay because they wanted it.
Tells men they deserve to be hit by women because they probably did something wrong.
Tells men that sacrificing his goals and aspirations for a woman is what “real men” do.
Tells men they aren’t allowed to have preferences on body because that’s sexist or body shaming.
Tells men that its their duty to protect women from danger even at the risk of their own lives because its what “real men” do.
Tells men they have privilege and so their problems don’t count.
WE ALSO LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT:
Has consistently told men that rape is wrong. Here is a list of some rape prevention messages over the years.
Has never told women not to rape men or boys yet it happens ALL THE TIME.
Does not tell women not to lie about rape even though it happens more than you think.
CONCLUSION: Some people do fucked up things because some people have no moral guidance and do not care if you tell them they are wrong. Blaming men for rape is not helping, it is only perpetuating the idea that only men rape, men can somehow stop rape, and women never lie about rape — all of which are false. Telling people not to do things does not work. Even the death penalty is not a deterrent from murder because people still kill each other in Texas and they have the highest rate of death row executions.
Believe it or not, the world is a scary place that will never be completely safe as long as people are free to make their own choices even at the risk of harming themselves. It is imperative that people learn how to protect themselves from becoming victims. I believe that women being told to be safe and protect themselves from violence or rape is purely a consideration for their well being that is not offensive. The fact that men are never told to be safe while they are three times more likely to be victims of homicide reinforces that society’s concerns are most definitely in favor of protecting women while men are simply disposable and not worthy of consideration at all for their safety and well being. Some may argue that because statistically men are the main perpetrators of violence against other men that it is only the fault of men but this only highlights the disposable attitude towards men because we don’t question nor do we as a society care how they got that way. This is shown to be absolutely true due to the lack of male services or support groups. In a recent study, it was found that men are not inherently violent and that more men equals less violence and more peace. This is a blow to the typical stereotype that men are violent in nature.
In ending this I want to bring attention to the fact that a female prison in Oklahoma had the highest rate of rape between inmates in the United States at 15.3%. Women are just as capable of rape as men are and the issue is not about gender but about fucked up people with no moral compass who, quite frankly, do not give a shit about your picket signs, your posters, or your blog posts telling them not to rape. Essentially, you are talking to a brick wall and throwing an entire gender under the bus while you do it.

Everyone needs to watch this.

First I was like wtf and then I was like oh

To all those folks who won’t ever listen to us when we say that rape knows no gender, only a rapist and a victim.

EVERY ONE NEEDS TO WATCH THIS. I DON’T CARE. WATCH IT. WATCH IT UNTIL YOU GET IT. AND GIF IT TOO.

I’m trying to give this as many notes as I can.

Rape is awful, no matter who it happens to, and any victim ought to be allowed to cope how they see fit.

The saddest part of this video is that you can just see the pain in his eyes.

IS BEING BOSSY REALLY SO BAD?

Yes it is. No one, boy or girl, should boss people around and bully them.

On top of that, this banbossy campaign says that being bossy=leadership. No it fucking doesn’t. That’s what pissed me off most about seeing this campaign. 
Being a leader requires strength, compassion, and sacrifice and a shit ton of decision making. Ladies, if you’re a shitty leader, you’re bound to get criticism for it. It’s not because of your gender, it’s because of your stupidity. The world doesn’t revolve around you, so stop making everything about you. Stop making everything “misogyny!”

Why the “Patriarchy Backfiring” theory makes no sense

So as we know, men are victims of sexism as much as women are. (If you honestly don’t believe that, open your freakin eyes, please) But it is dismissed as the “patriarchy backfiring.” 

1. If that’s the case, then why does the misandry usually come from feminists? 

2. By that logic, if a feminist spews misandry, wouldn’t she/he be giving into the patriarchy? Giving into the patriarchy is one of golden things feminists are supposed to be against and yet a good lot of them do it. Then I hardly see feminists calling out their fellow mates for it. (Granted, I know there are feminists who wouldn’t hesitate to stand up to them, but they’re very rare.)

(I know I said I wasn’t going to post on here for a while, but this thought came to my head and I could not resist)

khymeira asked: Curious. In what 'real life' instance (off of Tumblr/the Internet) has cisphobia presented as problem that compromised your social mobility, your sense of safety, and your rights? Just asking, as a fellow ciswoman.

Cisphobia isn’t much of a problem as of today. But it very well could be in the future. Why am I so concerned with this? Because racism towards whites have become a problem (i.e. a boy committed suicide after being constantly bullied for being white) despite the fact that racism towards poc is more common. Misandry has also become a huge problem for men (e.i. no reproductive rights, bias court system, etc). 

I want trans people to have the same rights cis people have. But people here on tumblr aren’t doing anything to achieve that goal. They’re only encouraging more bullying. That’s why I was angry in the first place and lashed out. (It was unnecessary, but Ive already apologized for that)

motherfuckas claiming cisphobia is oppressing them when they didn’t even know what cisgender meant until like 6 weeks ago

motherfuckas claiming one type of hate is worse than another type of hate when they don’t even know how to actually stand up for their cause. 

yo, when cis folk are afraid of declaring they’re cis because they fear they might get disowned, raped, beaten, or murdered, then you can come to me and complain about hating cis people.

Until then, shut the fuck up.

oh so trans people are the most perfect human beings in the history of human beings and we all must worship them because they can do no wrong! I’m sorry! I thought trans people wanted to be treated like human beings, not deities. 

Hey kids, do you hear that? This person thinks transsexuals are perfect in every way! So perfect that if they commit genocide on cis people, it’s perfectly okay because they’re transsexuals and they’ve been oppressed and have every right to kill 99% of the human population! 

Come back to me when you stop condoning one form of hate over another and deifying minorities and then we’ll talk. :)

Le sigghhh… Here it goes.

To those that read this ^ post: 

I’ve thought about what I said and realized that I sound just like the people I’m supposed to be against. I was making assumptions and lashed out and I despise to admit it (believe me, I’d rather eat a freakin raw fish) I was wrong. I’m sorry. Next time, I won’t lash out like that. I hope you all can find it in your heart to forgive me. 

That being said, I’m going to take a break from this blog. I don’t feel like dealing with this sjw and tumblr feminist nonsense anymore. So I probably won’t be blogging this as often as I did before. 

And besides, I need to catch up on my Pagan faith. This sjw stuff is really getting in the way of it.

Well, there’s always Power Girl with her sidekick Tactless Boob Window…

Guys, you do realize this entire episode was about how modern day feminism has devolved into mindless man hate? That woman is a supervillain who’s basically a radical feminist. She teaches the powerpuff girls to find oppression in everything. For instance, the professor asks them to clean their rooms, and they berate him for assuming it’s a woman’s place to clean. Never mind the fact that he just finished cleaning the entire house and only asked them to do their part. Femme Fatale continues to rob banks, but convinces the girls that putting a fellow sister in jail would be wrong. After all, they have to stand together to fight the evil men. By the end of the episode, the girls realize that Femme Fatale isn’t a good person. Just because she claims to be a feminist doesn’t mean she actually cares about equal rights. They take her to jail, and learn a valuable lesson about equality. Namely, just because there may still be harmful stereotypes about women, fighting back with violence and general douchebaggery only makes things worse.
