it sucks that we live in a world where men are fuckin heroes for not taking advantage of women.
"what a great guy for not trying to sleep with her while she was extremely intoxicated" wow what an amazing dude, having simple human decency
Feminism did that. Decent PEOPLE don’t take advantage of others. Feminists started the “all men are rapists” mentality.
Come back when women are the ones that are portrayed as predators and men are the victims and then we’ll talk. :)
This really restores my faith in humanity. I wish every hateful sjw could see this.
Imagine a world without hate…
STOP ASSUMING FEMINISTS DON’T CARE ABOUT MEN WHO’VE BEEN ABUSED
YES ABUSE HAPPENS TO MEN
YES MEN AREN’T “ALLOWED” TO REPORT IT OR BE EMOTIONAL ABOUT IT
PATRIARCHY SAYS MEN ARE EMOTIONLESS, WOMEN ARE EMOTIONAL, AND EMOTION AND VICTIMHOOD ARE FEMININE WEAKNESSES
DON’T LIKE IT? SMASH IT WITH US.
JESUS. FUCKING. CHRIST.
Oh my goodness this has to be one of the most irritating things I’ve read. No one is “assuming” feminists do not care about mens issues- the evidence is right there. What feminists do is skew issues that men face into “well it’s only there because of this stigma that women have to deal with!”. It takes problems men have in society and turn them inside out- basically saying “this actually effects women! This is actually because of hatred towards women!”
Also- please, please do not blame everything on this invisible force called the patriarchy. Attempting to figuratively smash something that doesn’t exist while sitting behind a computer screen whining about people seeing women as weak, when society as a whole emphasizes women as strong entities isn’t doing anything. If you cared about mens issues you wouldn’t say they are a result of negative stigmas for women- you’d see them for the fucked up things they are, and acknowledge that men face real problems that are solely based on stereotypes and double standards effecting only men.
Men having a harder time reporting abuse is not a result of unfairness towards women. It’s unfairness towards men. Get that straight.
I’d like to see evidence that any significant amount of “smashing” to solve men’s problems is going on before I throw my chips into the pot. Because AFAIK, feminism has literally two significant initiatives, ever, about addressing men’s issues. Just two. Both announced this year.
It’s also interesting how you don’t say that men are actually worse off than women in any way. If being emotional is generally seen as a “weakness” for women, why is it encouraged and protected, while it’s discouraged in men?
But, hey, if you want me to believe that feminists are trying to help men, please round up a posse, so to speak, and call out Manboobz, a site about mocking and stigmatizing men who talk about their issues. How about those feminists in India who fought the gov’t when it was trying to make rape laws gender neutral earlier this year? Where are the feminist critiques of that? What about the feminists who broke the law at the University of Toronto trying to silence discussions of men’s issues three times in the past year?
Posters I made for my rape culture program.
The only rape culture I see is men being told they’re inherently rapists and need to be taught otherwise.
The only rape culture I see is the myth that only women can be raped and only men can be rapists.
The only rape culture I see is the fact that I hear so much about women being raped, but never men.
The only rape culture I see is that women are allowed to joke about misandry, but men aren’t allowed to joke about rape.
The only rape culture I see men getting raped by women and she gets off the hook because shes’ female and women can’t rape.
The only rape culture I see is the fact that you can’t even check the circumstances of said rape encounter because feminists has over-exaggerated the definition of rape.
I happen to be a female rape survivor and seeing posts like these freakin disgusts me!
and if any of you white people respond with “wait but I didn’t do that. that was in the past”
i need you to check your privilege
and then drink bleach if you think your hands aren’t dirty
Guilt doesn’t transfer from generation to generation. I am not magically accountable for something my great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather MIGHT have done. Also;
>social justice blogger
>telling people to kill themselves
I love that there’s a blog called “this is white culture” that is solely devoted to bad things white people did, not their cultures at all. So I guess I can make a blog called “this is black culture” and post gang and crime records and that’s 100% okay. Or “this is Muslim culture” and make it all about terrorism.
But wait, you cry. Not all black people are criminals and not all Muslims are terrorists. That’s unfair! And racist!
WELL GOLLY GEE DO YOU THINK SO? Because saying that all white people are responsible for the Atlantic slave trade sounds pretty racist to me, given that, you know, that was between the African slaveholders and the British and Americans and had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with my ancestors, who were incredibly poor farmers and serfs from Ireland and Lithuania who had to flee to America at around the turn of the century (by which time slavery had already been abolished in the US) because they were being treated like slaves. Even if they had been living in America at the time when slavery was legal they wouldn’t have been able to afford a slave; in fact they probably would have been working with them in the fields and treated about the same, since the first slaves in America were actually white serfs. But please, tell me more about how dirty my hands are because of circumstances surrounding my birth that I could not control and continue to treat me differently based on the color of my skin without actually knowing anything about my heritage, I’m sure that isn’t racist at all!
What is love?
Apparently only for white people.
Dude, you do realize this ad is Italian right? Those people are Italian, because it’s an Italian ad. Italian people are typically white. This ad is suppose to be about acceptance in THEIR country, why would they have models that don’t look like they’re from their country?
I’m gettin’ real tired of tumblr’s attitude. I’m probably going to get a lot of hate for this, but here we go.
Not everywhere is as mixed as North America. You go to places like Japan and it would be really weird to see a white person in their ad, it’s no different for places like Italy and Germany where people are mostly white. In North American we seem to have a decently even mix in a lot of areas so it’s a little off-putting when there’s only a certain race -generally all white people- depicted, where it’s completely normal and would appear really strange otherwise for other countries. Like you wouldn’t go to China and demand they show white people in their ads there, so why would you do the same for a country that has very few PoC compared to it’s population?
As the person above me said, why would they have models that don’t look like they’re from their country in their ads?
Seriously, I am Italian, and FUCK YOU. Our country has huge problems with homophobia, there isn’t even one single law to protect homosexuals. Most European countries have legalized marriage and adoption (or at least talked about it), but not Italy. The Catholic community does everything they can to block the law against homophobia. Last month, a 14 years-old killed himself because he was gay. You have no idea how much that kind of thing matters in Italy, all you can fucking do is whine about Tumblr about the fact that they are all white. Yes, in Italy the majority of the population is indeed white. Not the rest of the world is like fucking North America. So before you come whining about it on Tumblr, get your facts right.
I love it when reality slaps the fuck out of Tumblr.
just one of those nights
A lot of things happening in the comments section here that i really like
Why, as a feminist and a rape victim, I have an issue with calling rape a ‘feminist issue’.
I was raped nearly 5 years ago, in high school, by three boys in my class on the way home from school, their motivation apparently was to “fix the lesbian”. They are all currently incarcerated.
I identify as a feminist, I support and preach many women’s rights issues.
I will not identify rape as a feminist issue.
Women are victims of rape.
Men are victims of rape.
Trans people are victims of rape.
Children are victims of rape.
Infants are victims of rape.
Calling rape a ‘feminist issue’ makes rape a problem of one in five groups who are victims of this horrible crime, you can break it down to even more groups if you choose, but the point is that if you put your hand over that, and cover the other victims, you are part of a problem, and that problem is under-reporting and under-convicting.
Please do not add to the stigma that only cis-women can be victims of rape, because it is simply not true. In the end, the goals are simple;
1. Get rapists off the streets
2. Discourage rape culture
3. Proper help for victims of rape
None of those are achieved by covering up half the issue. If you want to alienate groups of people, and suggest that they cannot be victims of this crime, then you are encouraging under-reporting and you are encouraging more rapists to walk free.
This has nothing to do with privilege, it has nothing to do with how you dress, it has nothing to do with your physical appearance, attitudes, behaviours or if you are intoxicated or not. It has everything to do with violent people doing the wrong thing.
Rape is a human issue.
Finally! A feminist who makes logical sense!
You other feminists out there who claim men can’t be raped or that rape is a woman issue, take notes.
I’ve been waiting for this post all my life
the disclaimer though
reblogging again because I actually read the disclaimer this time…
The second image fits so perfectly.
Saw this posted on my facebook this morning and just had to share. It continually amazes me how many people here on tumblr and elsewhere in the world continue to think the answer to racism is more racism…or that racism against white people is somehow “justified” or “doesn’t count as racism.”
Not only do white people think you’re full of shit, but so do your fellow POC.
Racism alienates people, no matter what they look like or who they might be related to. It’s as simple as that. Racism begets racism.
"White racism doesn’t exi-"
