This blog got blocked because it was self harming. These people actually believe that trying to not be discriminated against is self harming. I’m done.
Mod note: Yep. They actually think that by us advocating against discrimination, we’re hurting fat people. They think fat hatred and bias is good for fat people, and because we consider it critically, we’re not allowing those bad fattie-fats to get the torture they “deserve” and hence (as they fallaciously believe) become permanently thin, morally better people as a result. But fat people aren’t discriminated against, right? -ATL
You’re deliberately downplaying the very real health issues obesity can cause. You’re enabling sons of bitches who ignore completely logical health advice and, let’s be real, here, no thin person has ever made me hate myself for being fat as much as you guys do. This is probably the best thing I’ve ever seen.
Seriously. This is beautiful.
YOU GUYS. LOOK.
YAY! THANK YOU JESUS!
Let me talk about this shit post right here cause I’m fucking sick of it.
I have been sexually assaulted three times in my life. Some of of the things in this song were said to me. “You know you want it” shit like that. Okay fine wow.
You know what the fuck else? I was never triggered. If you were this fucking triggered by a shit pop song you have way more issues than a fucking song. You need some serious help. If you are going through the lyrics, watching the video over and over, and picking out every small phrase that can be applied to your rape, you aren’t that fucking upset.
Further more, I’m sure other people have said “you’re a good girl” to women. I’m sure fathers say that to their daughter. Any time you hear that phrase do you fly into a fit of PTSD rage? No you don’t. This song isn’t about rape. I am seriously about to flip my shit on this.
I was raped, three different times. What did I think when I saw this video? It was obnoxious and the music sucked. I did not feel victimized or violated. Why? Cause fucking Robin Thicke was not my rapist. Further more he didn’t rape any of you idiots nor has he raped anyone. Theses women wanted to be in this video. These women agreed to all of this. This song isn’t about rape.
You could literally take any goddamn song out there and any one of the phrases could apply to rape or a violent situation. Why the fuck you feminist cunts all targeted Robin Thicke for a very harmless and shit video I don’t know. This is why no one takes you seriously.
Things that are actually serious and need to be addressed, you ignore. Things that are absolutely harmless you fucking pitch a fit about for no fucking reason. This is what makes me ashamed to be a woman.
All of you should be ashamed of yourself. I am a rape victim and you are trying to speak for me. You are belittling what I went through by saying an annoying pop song is the equivalent of rape. It fucking isn’t. I rarely wish idiots would die but Jesus fucking Christ. Stop passing this around. Stop acting like this song is rape. Right now the only thing that is rape is how you are raping me with your fucking ignorant opinions. Just shut the fuck up already!
Ichiro reblogging: This is…perfect.
Nothing sexier than a woman with a brain… see that’s why I can’t get hard for feminists. That and the fact they believe my boner is a potential rapist.
well why do you think we consider you a potential rapist? we’re literally taught from childhood to be afraid of men. Technically any man is a potential rapist. That’s the scary thing. What some people disregard though is that women are potential rapists too. Its not about it being a penis its about a right to feel safe while walking down the street. Its about a right to wear the clothes you want to wear without having to think oh is this “asking” to be assaulted? All genders deserves a sense of security.
And everyone is a potential murderer… and everyone’s a potential child molestor… and everyone’s a potential communist…
Which is the whole point.
You were taught that from childhood to keep you paranoid. I wasn’t, the girls I knew weren’t, and overall very few people are trained from childhood to view people as potential rapists.
It was beaten into your head for the purpose of keeping you scared and ensuring you remain faithful to the dogma.
If 1 in 4 women are raped (as the bullshit statistic goes) then that means there are literally HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF RAPISTS…
This would represent a crime wave unheard of in human history. It would make your small town smell like the shittiest ghettos of Detroit.
If the rape statistics that are ground into your skull were true I don’t think any woman would walk outside… much less get hammered at a fucking bar and go home with a stranger.
The reality is that rape is extraordinarily rare in the grand scheme of things… just like fucking Communists were extraordinarily rare in the grand scheme of things…
but just like they ere taught to red a Communist on every street corner so you were taught the magic words “Potential Rapist” and applied them to every man you meet.
is he talking about that little cut?
i was going to go to bed but it’s time to smack down so im gonna inform you all of a thing or two about the comparison between male and female victims of domestic violence that might shock you.
Similarities and differences between male and female victims
In the South Australian study, the similarities between male and female victims of domestic violence included.
- the reasons they remained in a relationship where there was violence and abuse
- the triggers for violence and abuse;
- feelings of shame and embarrassment associated with the disclosure of violence.
The ways in which male victims’ experiences of domestic violence differed from females’ were:
- males reported that they were not living in an ongoing state of fear of the perpetrator;
- males did not have prior experiences of violent relationships, and
- males rarely experienced post-separation violence and, in the one reported case, it was far less severe than in male-to-female violence.
Female victims of domestic violence in the South Australian study confirmed the prevalence of physical, psychological, emotional, social and financial abuse (often in combination) as well as other intimidating or controlling forms of abuse, such as stalking, sleep deprivation or driving a car too fast (*The South Australian phone-in interviewed 120 callers, most of whom were female victims of violence. The female respondents reported all forms of abuse and often the various forms of abuse overlapped in one abusive event.) They also described patterns of extreme cruelty that often developed in long-term, violent relationships with ‘strategies’ of abuse becoming more diverse over time.
95% of those interviewed reported that they had experienced abuse over a period of years. In many relationships, acts of cruelty were carried out on the women, the children in the family (as primary and secondary victims) and on family pets. Humiliation, cruelty, jealousy, isolation from friends and family and the infliction of emotional, sexual or physical pain were common experiences. Victims frequently spoke of the abusers’ need to control all aspects of their life, both in and away from the house.
The link between the length of the relationship and the experience of cruelty was particularly notable, especially as the common theme in the women’s accounts was their daily experience of living in fear. The findings indicated that the vast majority of female victims were frightened of their partner, compared to none of the male victims.
Although there is some evidence that both men and women engage in abusive behaviour in heterosexual relationships, the nature and consequence of women’s violence is not equivalent to men’s in the following ways.
- Men’s violence is more severe:
- Women are more likely to be killed by current and former male partners than by anyone else;
- most male homicides are committed by males in public places as a result of alcohol-related arguments;
- the main reasons men kill their female partners are desertion, the ending of a relationship, and jealousy. However studies of wives who kill their husbands reveal that there is a history of marital violence in more than 70% of the cases and over half of the husband killings occur in response to an immediate threat or attack by the husband;
- some studies suggest that women’s violence is more likely to be self defence where the male partner is violent;
- men’s violence towards women is most often an attempt to control, coerce, humiliate, or dominate by generating fear and intimidation. However, women’s violence is more often an expression of frustration in response to their dependence or stress, or their refusal to accept a less powerful position; and
- most women whose partners are violent live in fear before, during, and after separation from them. However male victims are far less likely to be afraid or intimidated, and are more likely to be angry.
-Bagshaw, D, Chung, D Couch, M, Lilburn, s & Wadham, B, Reshaping responses to domestic violence, Office for the Status of Women, Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, Canberra 1999.
okay? i love how men experience a small portion of violence at the hands of women, like a fucking cut on his arm and he thinks he’s a full blown domestic abuse survivor worthy of shitting on all the experiences of the women who die or are hospitalised at the hands of male violence every fucking week.
like okay, it’s shitty that your girlfriend cut you or scratched you or whatever she did, i’m not sure it’s not clear but come back to me when you’ve had to spend years as a child watching your step dad pin your mum down on your bed while you were quietly playing just so he can spit on her face because she was trying to stand up for herself against him.
nobody says women can’t abuse men, the argument is that the abuse on female victims is far more severe and should be the main focus point, when you make posts like this you are actually erasing the entire struggle that we go through every day because you need to make your little issue front and centre and of course everyone cares about the white male’s issues more than anyone else!!!!
Not to mention male violence has historical and political context surrounding it. Men for thousands of years, globally have been using violence to subjugate, silence, and seek dominance over women. Female-to-male domestic violence is deviant, but male-to-female domestic violence is the norm and is systematically protected.
You would think that this would cause a person to reject the bogus teachings of the manly man’s “girls can’t” narrative so dear to the hearts of misogynists everywhere. But that would shake his world, so he will double down on the misogyny instead.
Wow, guy with a scratch on his hand, feminism doesn’t need you either, ’cause feminism is for women. Even if we were to give you the benefit of the doubt and believe that your injuries were severe and your life was in danger, people not taking you seriously is neither women’s fault nor women’s problem.
looks like a bite mark. women tend to bite hands that grab or choke them
[VICTIM BLAMING INTENSIFIES]
I just want to take the time to appreciate self proclaimed feminists providing me with yet another example of their fucked up selfish view of the world. I also want to appreciate the poster above that victim blaming cumstain above you, for breaking the rosy dream that feminism is for the equality of the genders and that it’s for everyone, like so many of them like to say.
Thank you. Thank you so much for providing me with more examples of why I will never call myself a feminist ever again.
So one man says he was abused and suddenly he’s trying to make every single domestic violence issue about him alone. The fact that he exists erases every single female victim and men deserve no help or recognition whatsoever. There are a tiny handful of shelters that even accept men and they honestly think that women are erased and ignored in favour of men? We see women on here every day claiming they’re oppressed because their “eye rape” wasn’t recognised or taken seriously by police and that just because it’s not as bad as actual rape doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be dealt with but a man who was abused and has the scars to prove it is scum because X thing happens.
When the Nazi concentration camps were liberated by the Allies, it was a time of great jubilation for the tens of thousands of people incarcerated in them. But an often forgotten fact of this time is that prisoners who happened to be wearing the pink triangle (the Nazis’ way of marking and identifying homosexuals) were forced to serve out the rest of their sentence. This was due to a part of German law simply known as “Paragraph 175” which criminalized homosexuality. The law wasn’t repealed until 1969.
This should be required learning, internationally.
You need to know this. You need to remember this. This is not something to swept under the carpet nor be forgotten.
Never. Too many have died for the way they have loved. That needs stop now.
Make it stop?
I did a report on this in my World History class my sophomore year of high school. It was incredibly unsettling.
My teacher shown the class this. Mostly everyone in the class felt uncomfortable.
I have reblogged this in the past, but it is so ironic that it comes across my dash right now. I a currently working as a docent at my city’s Holocaust Education Center (( I say currently because I’ve also done research and translation for them )) and out current exhibit is one on loan from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum ((USHMM)). This is a little known historical fact that Paragraph 175 was not repealed after the war and those convicted under Nazi laws as a danger to society because they were gay were not released because they had be convicted in a court of law. There was no liberation or justice for them as they weren’t considered criminals, or even victims for that matter. They were criminals who remained persecuted and ostracized and kept on the fringes of society for decades after the war had been won. Paragraph175 wasn’t actually repealed until 1994. And it was only in May 2002, that the German parliament completed legislation to pardon all homosexuals convicted under Paragraph175 during the Nazi era. History has forgotten about these men and women — please educate yourselves so this does not happen again. Remember this history. Remember them.
This would have been more meaningful if it had come from someone besides the straight, white man. You know, like the lady two people over.
Seriously? Seriously, people? Shut the fuck up. Because he is a white straight man making an effort to gather support for equal rights he is unworthy? That his support is nothing? Or that it’s not good enough for him to support equal rights? Get your slick stinky underwear out of your ass crack and stop being so stupid. I’ve heard macklemore get so much shit today for FUCKING SUPPORTING equal rights! He is a straight white man using his privilege in a correct and respectful way and people seem to have a problem with that?! You’re fucking kidding me. So if he just decided to suck someone’s dick the day before, would his support finally mean something?! Man, shut the hell up people. This is support right here, and in the mainstream media.
/end motherfucking rant
reblogging this a million times
do you even understand how much shit macklemore gets because people think he’s gay? do you understand that they kept passing the microphone to her but she didnt want to speak? do you understand that if you’re straight, you can support same sex marriage? because you can. just because he’s straight doesn’t mean his support doesn’t matter. do you get how amazing it is to have a song like this played on the radio? things like this dont hapoen often, and the fact that the same straight goofball who sang “thrift shop” can write something so beautiful like this is amazing. in fact, i think it is fucking amazing that this man is using his speech time to talk about gay rights. he almost forgot to thank his fiancé because he cared about this cause so much. do you know what taylor swift did? fucking insulted her ex. macklemore used his minute and a half (maybe less) of speech time to stand up for what he believe, to stand up for love, to stand up for his family. and you think that just because he’s straight it isn’t valid? that makes you just as close minded as homophobic people in my opinion.
I will never ever not reblog this. Ever.
Maybe now she’ll actually achieve something.
I really want to point out all the things the Op has clearly missed by a mile with this laughable post. The way that women’s studies is apparently a “tiny speck” of life. Because we are so few and so unimportant, right? I really want to go on at length about how taking the time to make this up just to call some girl names is not just mean and bullying but also fairly sad and displays a nothing else better to do to contribute to real world problems, type of person…
I really want to write an essay on this BUT
My brain is screaming “He used comic sans!”
Which I know makes me a bandwagon jumping snob (I usually don’t dis comic sans on principle) but given it’s reputation, it undermines the credibility that this person knows absolutely anything about the “world in general” as you can’t be on the internet more than 5 seconds without realising comic sans is the flashing neon sign of “my first time using internetz!”
To be fair, I didn’t make this picture, I found it.
And don’t act like “Women’s Studies” is actually anything more than “Feminism 101”. Everyone knows that’s what it is, but colleges can’t call it that because that would require associating themselves with an ideology which may deter other applicants.
So yes, women’s studies is indeed unimportant. It offers no career aspects whatsoever (besides teaching women’s studies), and is a waste of money. Taking a women’s studies course offers nothing important to anyone and a degree in it is worth less than the paper the girl in the pic is holding.
Wow, just wow!
I don’t even need to say anything, I’ll just leave this here with a nice link to a list of women talking about exactly what they did with their women’s studies qualifications. That took 5 seconds to find. I’d hate to think how much evidence I’d find if i actually made an effort. (Sorry to use actual facts on you, I know these are the enemy of anti-fems) ;)
Alright, I’ll go through this.
“ teaching associate and assistant debate coach.”
I did say they’d be teaching. This doesn’t surprise me.
“project/senior program manager at the International Association of Chiefs of Police, responsible for several million dollars of federal funding aimed at enhancing law enforcement’s understanding and response to crimes of violence against women.”
“ there were not many jobs available in fields where I could use my newly minted knowledge. … I applied for and was offered my current job, directing a women’s resource center at a community college.”
Oh yeah, that’s such a successful career right? I bet she teaches the women who come in about Feminism while she’s at it.
“I was hired by Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. As a member of her staff, I worked on a number of legislative initiatives, including recognizing Rosie the Riveters, legislation to authorize the Women’s History Museum to use a building in Washington, D.C., and the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act.”
>Recognizing Rosie the Riveter
Hahaha, I wonder if she knows that much about what Rosie actually did. She worked as a riveter for 1 week before quitting because it was “too hard”, becoming a Cellist and marrying into money.
Anyway, this girl basically helped keep the law in the same place of “women are always victims, men are always aggressors” that Feminists have always loved to have it.
“double major in women’s studies and anthropology. I have been accepted to grad school at New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, in Mesoamerican archeaology.”
She got a job based on her anthropology degree, not her women’s studies degree.
“ I will be attending law school in Indiana.”
This girl isn’t even finished with school yet. And her law degree, should she get it, will most likely be what gets her a job.
“I’m just finishing my sophomore year as a women and gender studies major…”
Another one that isn’t even done with her schooling yet. She only has “ideas” of what she’ll do, she hasn’t actually DONE anything.
So that was, what, 7 people? 2 of which didn’t have jobs, 1 who had a job that didn’t apply to women’s studies, 1 that I was expecting, 2 who have had actual influence in laws (which is scary to think about), and 1 working at a community college.
You really think that a list of what actually comes out to 4 people using their women’s studies degrees proves anything?
How about we stop making this whole thing about you and focus on the fact that people should be allowed to make their own choices and pay for them. How do you know the girl wasn’t paying her own way and her dad denied her what she wanted to do?
It happened to me. I wanted to be a teacher. They forced me to be a technician. I would be making MORE money in a teaching field than the computer field I’m in now.
Because times change. Misogyny apparently doesn’t. Check your privilege op. And open your world view.
I’m sorry you were the victim of a crime and no one believed you but you have to stop persecuting others for it and make change not barriers.
Oh the irony of a Feminist accusing ME of having a victim complex is so delicious.
And did I ever mention who would be paying for it at all? The picture doesn’t even say who would be paying for it, except “my father said I shouldn’t spend $40k to major in women’s studies”. Not to mention, if her dad had simply forced her not to take the major, I highly doubt she would have wrote “I let my father convince me”.
I checked my privilege, here’s what I found.
You found an infographic that shows women have it harder than men and are trying to use it to make a point so far gone you can’t find it?
Oh, and btw I’m not a feminist. I’m an equalist. I think everyone should be equal and not ruled by a man’s dick. Thank you.
>infographic that shows women have it harder than men
Uh, I think you read that infographic backwards buddy. If you’re going solely off the inforgraphic, it’s MEN who have it harder than women.
You said I should “check my privilege”. Apparently as a man I have the “privilege” of dying sooner than women.
Suicide Victims = Because most of the time these numbers are not scientifically accurate as women often use methods they can be rescued from (overdose, wrist cutting) whereas men just blow their heads off. It doesn’t mean there are less women who are suicidal, it just means they aren’t as successful the first time.
Workplace Fatalities = Because men won’t hire women for ‘dangerous’ jobs. Hell, when I worked at KFC the men in the kitchen got more money because it was dangerous and women were not allowed in the kitchen because of the fact that it was man’s work. That was in the 90s. Funny how I could do everything else and got injured just as much as they did doing all the other work involved in fast food.
Homicide Victims = Mostly because men get into pissing contests and women just get fucking vindictive as hell because why kill your enemy when you can slowly torture them. Meaning, women are smarter because they don’t kill. Men are dumb because that’s the first thing they want to do when affronted.
Homeless People = Single women do not have near as many resources and are often forced to “whore out” to boys just to have a place to live. Men do not do this, they have other options though, such as government funds and halfway houses. Women, unless they have children, don’t have options aside from selling themselves just to have a bed and therefore they aren’t seen as homeless but as property.
Look at that. Seems someone else read the infographic wrong, buddy.
And as a man you have the privilege to do stupid things that get you killed and make poor decisions. Also, as a man, you get to make more money and be given more opportunities than a kitchen and bedroom.
Suicide - You’re right on the methodology. But the fact that you act like it’s unimportant that men successfully kill themselves more often, simply because women live to attempt again, is, quite frankly, disgusting.
Workplace Fatalities - Uh-huh, sure. That’s why. It couldn’t be because women simply don’t WANT the dangerous jobs. I certainly don’t see any Feminists campaigning for women to be garbage collectors or construction workers or deep sea fishers.
Homicide Victims - I love how your argument here turned into “Men are dumb, women are smart”. You seriously claim to be an Equalist, or are you just fucking with me now?
Homeless - Women in general get the most benefits from government assistance programs, and yet you say that only men have the option of getting government funds. If a woman has to “whore out” just to find a place to live she must be completely oblivious to just how much help there is. Women-only resource centers, violence shelters, homeless shelters, etc. all exist.
And no, I don’t have the privilege of making more money or having more opportunities. Know why? Because it’s women who are graduating college more (across all races). It’s women that get gender-specific scholarships all the time.
But guess what? It’s men who work 60% of all work hours. Do you know what happens when one person works more hours than another person? They *gasp* EARN more money because they did more work!
Seriously, you’re so full of shit it’s coming out of your ears. You’re nothing even remotely close to an Equalist.
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE WOMYN?!? WHO CARES ABOUT YOUR MALE TEARS!
You don’t need to tear down one body type in order to praise another. It is not a contest where one body type has to win. When we treat beauty like a competition, we all lose.
Yep. I know it’s a lot of notes to ask for, and a really short amount of time, and I probably won’t get even one but, I’m doing this because a friend told me to. I was going to kill myself tonight. I had no one to talk to, no one to vent to. They wouldn’t understand. I’m going through a lot, and it won’t seem to stop. Ever. It pains me to breathe, even. But I’m giving it one shot, knowing it won’t work, just because my friend asked me to. So no, I’m not seeking attention, I simply made a promise to a friend. If it was for me I’d be dead already. The 7th was an important date for me, and therefore that’s the day I’m choosing.
EVERYONE REBLOG THE SHIT OUT OF THIS. EVERY DAY.
This was on the source’s Blog.*
This is why I hate emo blogs. They are fake attention whores.
yep, just fucking make light of people with depression and suicide!
