Perfect example of how patriarchy uses racism and classism to prevent solidarity and create division between women.
"to prevent solidarity and create division between women." Can not stress enough.
Every day I look at the online news headlines and every single day without exception I am sickened by all the reports about male behavior, i.e. the:
murder of women by men (often their wives and girlfriends),
the murder of men by other men,
the murder of children by men (often their own kids),
the beating of women by men (often their wives and girlfriends),
the beating of men by other men,
the rape of women by men,
the statutory rape of teenagers by men,
the rape and sexual abuse of children by men,
women’s bodies being sold to men for sex,
children’s bodies being sold to men for sex,
they try to control our bodies and reproductive lives….
basically a bunch of men behaving like vile, disgusting, repulsive, violent and evil swine…
If men in general want women not to hate them - the answer is obvious - they just need to stop doing hate-worthy things and/or prevent other men from doing hate-worthy things. As it is, men as a collective deserve to be hated and in fact women often don’t hate them as they deserve.
On the other hand - what do women do exactly to deserve the sheer misogyny we endure from men each day? We do not do violent shit to men every damn day (even though they do it to us). No - it is a one way street. Why do men hate women and children so much that they continually chose to do these awful things to us and make us live in fear of them?
The answer? Men hate us simply because we won’t make our bodies always available for their sexual consumption - whenever and whatever they want - and we won’t always make them sandwiches when they want. In other words we won’t pretend we are not every bit as human and worthy of respect as men.
So it turns out that - women have good reason to hate and mistrust men - but men have no genuine reason to justify their hatred of us.
If you look at it objectively - misandry seems like a rational and reasonable response to male behavior.
What is less rational - is the fact that not all women are lesbians.
Yes, how dare women complain about “petty things.” They should be appreciative of the fact that they were born into the oppressed sex class and shut up, am I right? What a wonderful friend you were.
dudes if you post stuff online in support of feminism but don’t call out your friends when they make shitty remarks about women or do anything to create safer spaces in real life than you’re not doing much more than looking for positive attention and patting yourselves on the back
You don’t get to have opinions on feminism if you consume porn
I don’t know who told you that porn can be feminist — probably some white liberal professor who writes for Bitch, supports SlutWalk, and brunches with Hugo Schwyzer — but you need to exorcise those demons and get your shit together before it’s too late
So we should just give men less socially valued female bodies (you know, prostituted women) so they don’t kill more women. And when they do kill those most vulnerable of women, which they will because they demand sex AND affection AND adoration, then what? What else can we offer men to placate them? Who else can we sacrifice to male violence?
The answer to male violence is not to give entitled monsters everything they want. Women are DONE negotiating with terrorists.
I wish I could sleep right now, I just want to sleep and forget for a moment what a horrible fucking place this world is for women.
These are the victims of the May 23, 2014 Isla Vista, CA killings. They’ll receive too little face time for their loss.
