“Nice guys finish last” is bullshit.

I think people would benefit more from hearing something like this:

“Assholes who pretend to be nice but really expect unrealistic things out of women and can’t seem to understand that acts of kindness don’t instantly merit you for romantic affection finish last.”

Sure, it’s not as concise, but it’s sure as hell more accurate.

Girl can’t own her own shittiness. Needs to hold a man responsible for her love of assholes. Takes a nice guy, smears him with a guy who is acting nice to get pussy. Self-hating male feminist panderer accepts dogma. Gallantly reinforces female shittiness. Dear feminists and weak male enablers, if women want power they have to own their faults, too. Otherwise you are just a weak whiner, and no woman or man wants someone in power like that.

Anti-Feminist Tumblr guy expecting to be taken seriously Misspells “aggression.”

Arguments so weak, they are based on spelling

i was looking through so many pulp covers last night and laughing at all the titles like “VAGABOND VIRGIN” and “NUDE—WITH A VIEW” so i saved a bunch of them and made them better. 

I’m peeing my pants with fear.

i just can’t sometimes. 

A NAFALT feminist. Except instead of saying ”Not All Feminists Are Like That,” it is more like MY personal version of feminism is not like that, therefore your argument is invalid. Or, feminism is what I say it is: shut up. We are then invited to ignore the very common bigoted hostilities of ivory tower feminism against women and men.

“You need to experience rape so you’ll agree with me about rape.”
… Yeah, because Slut Walks do a lot to help women, telling them that they shouldn’t be responsible for their own safety, and telling men that they’re responsible for not raping women.
Wait, isn’t that enforcing gender roles? Males = protectors and females = to be protected at all costs?
But hey, wishing rape on people so they’ll agree with you on how to handle rape is a-okay.

This kind of pressure is put on a lot of women, the pressure to come up with a rape narrative to be validated by the sisterhood.

I was so inspired by the brilliance of Ten rape prevention tips that I’m going to solve all the theft in the world the same way, because criminals are really reasonable people. 

1. Don’t pick people’s pockets

2. When you see anyone walking by themselves, don’t rob them.

3. If you pull over to help a someone whose car has broken down, remember not to rob them.

4. If you are in an elevator and a person gets in, don’t rob them.

5. When you encounter someone who is asleep, the safest course of action is to not rob them.

6. Never creep into a someone’s home through an unlocked door or window, or spring out at someone from between parked cars, and steal stuff.

7. Remember, people go to the laundry room to do their laundry. Do not attempt to steal stuff from someone who is alone in a laundry room.

8. Use the Buddy System! If it is inconvenient for you to stop yourself from robbing people, ask a trusted friend to accompany you at all times.

9. Carry a whistle. If you find that you are about to rob someone, blow the whistle until someone comes to stop you.

10. Don’t forget: Honesty is the best policy. When asking a someone out on a date, don’t pretend that you are interested in that person as a person; tell that person straight up that you expect to be robbing her later. If you don’t communicate your intentions, the person may take it as a sign that you do not plan to rob her.

When someone says “check your privilege” the correct response is not

bonesandbirch:

  • I have freedom of speech
  • You’re just stating your opinion
  • Stop harassing me
  • I’m not sexist/racist/spiciest/ableist/homophobic/transphobic but…
  • Stop being such a bitch
  • Everything you say is just opinion anyway
  • well you’re just wrong
  • omg bitch

The correct response is:

  • Thank you for pointing that out
  • I will work on that
  • Can you point me in the direction of some articles or resources?
  • I’ve not thought of it that way before
  • I will be more conscious from now on

No, you check your bullshit. When someone says “check your privilege” they mean, “my DNA gives me an experience which gives me the exclusive right to derail the discussion because I am automatically right and you are automatically wrong.” This is a logical fallacy

Wow. My mind is blown. You know, I write a lot about feminism and the bullshit that goes on today. I recognize that feminism has many facets, some of which I don’t particularly agree with. I really enjoyed this video. I just never thought about this before, in this way. I suppose I’ve discounted similar arguments because, well, I heard them from guys. Shame on me. I realize men aren’t supposed to be complainers. I myself am predisposed to look down on a man who is fighting for himself, instead of others. I preach and fight for the equality of women in the media, in the workplace, and in the home, but are we all that unequal? Certain things do need to change. Women deserve equality in the workplace. We deserve equality in the justice system. The early feminist movement gave us the right to vote, and fought against sexist language. But, men are expected to do the physical labor of the workplace, because it’s OK if a man is injured on the job. Domestic abuse cases of men are so often dismissed by our legal system as well as society. And, as far as sexist language goes, sexist against whom? Because I still call some men “filthy dickwads” and “pigs who will never get laid” and I get looks of concurrence and really no negative feedback. Why is that OK for me to say? Yet, those same men can’t look at me and go “Wow, what a slut!” without facing massive backlash.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m beginning to realize the feminist movement was never really about equality. It was about women. Not equality for women. Otherwise, I would be just as responsible to give up my seat on a lifeboat as a man. I want to be liberated as a woman, yet I still look to my boyfriend to open the door for me. I like to look at that as a caring gesture. But admittedly, if I am walking behind a man, I am a little taken aback if  he doesn’t hold the door. I am very independent and self-sufficient, but if I am on a train and an older man offers me his seat, I will protest but usually accept. I have since been injured so the seat is greatly appreciated; however, why was I any more entitled to that seat than that older man was? Technically, I’m young and heal quickly (but happen to have a uterus). He’s the one that should be sitting.

I’m a little ashamed at how hypocritical I’ve been. But this video is very informative, and I recommend a watch. I don’t really know how I feel about the feminist movement now, but I guess it lies- like most things- somewhere in between the two extremes. I DO think women deserve equal pay, and should not be looked at as sexual objects, or inferior in any way. But, I don’t think I have done anything to be looked at as superior in any way, either.  I don’t want that. Society owes me nothing for the sole reason that I can bear children. Maybe when I do something really meaningful, I’ll deserve that spot on the lifeboat. 

Reblogged for the comment. Look at that ladies and gents, somebody’s thinking. I may have to decide I like someone. At least for a tick.

And I don’t see women giving up what men’s dying got for them.
