How One Word Can Make You Wrong
  • Right:Men can be sexually assaulted.
  • Wrong:Men can be sexually assaulted too!
  • Right:Men suffer from sexism.
  • Wrong:Men suffer from sexism too!
  • Right:Men suffer from abuse.
  • Wrong:Men suffer from abuse too!
  • In Short:If you have to say "too" you are saying that at the wrong time, in the wrong place, and for the wrong reasons.

You ignore posts, people think you’re ignoring them because they’re right.

You address posts, people think you’re too defensive because you’re wrong.

You speak respectfully, people think you have a “holier than thou” attitude.

You speak bluntly, people think you’re disrespectful and/or take words out of context for their arguments.

Is there a middle ground that I’m not aware of? I started this less than 48 hours ago, and there’s already so many haters.

This is the final project that I made with my suitemates for a Media Criticism class. Things you should know that you otherwise wouldn’t if you weren’t in the class:

1) The class was mostly about how white men are evil.

2) An article we were told to read made an argument about how bathroom doors sometimes saying “LADIES” is wrong.

3) Our teacher said things were “problematic” at least once a class.

4) A kid named Manny was always asked to turn off the lights in class.

5) We discussed feminist bra burning.

6) Our teacher was an Asian woman.

What are your views on masculism (the movement)

So here’s my probably unpopular opinion about this certain thing. They have as much reason for the movement as anyone else. See people tend to look at males and females in some war. Especially when it comes to feminism. In this world we give more attention to radicals (radfems, radmascs) than we do on the actual movement itself. And what the masculist movement is trying to accomplish is the same as the feminist movement. But wait, why does it exist when there’s already feminism? Great question! Because with the feminist movement the focal points are different than the masculism/masculist movement slightly. For the most part some men just feel uncomfortable calling themselves feminists so they choose the term masculist. There is nothing wrong with that.  Also there could be the lack of education on what actual feminism is as opposed to “radical feminist” which isn’t even feminism. In reality the moderate sides to the feminist and masulist groups work together pretty dang well. What I don’t like about the movement is the potential to overshadow the feminist movement simply because it is done by men. 

Review of Gender Oppression: A Bloke's Perspective on the Struggled for Gender Equality

Review of Gender Oppression: A Bloke’s Perspective on the Struggled for Gender Equality

As I mentioned yesterday, this book brings up a lot of interesting points on the state men. It’s not about manhood, as many articles that I see are. It’s about men and men’s issues, though the author doesn’t identify as an MRA either. He explains why at the end. He is a masculist, which is a person who wants the rights of men to be equal to the rights of women.

He brings up several points where…

OHH my god what the hell thank you
masculist nerds are complete fucking garbage babies

i need everyone on tumblr to hear this. it’s so important

It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white. Or if you’re gay, straight, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, questioning. If you’re a feminist, a masculist, or something in between. If you listen to beyonce, or elvis presley, or fall out boy, or aretha franklin, if you are 10 years old or 87 years old, if you live in Africa, Asia, Europe, or any other continent.

because i fucking hate all of you

The reason why I left the social justice community of tumblr

•since I am white, I get excluded from agreeing with POC because I am not a POC.
•since I am white, I get shit when I point out the fact that racism is alive everywhere and I still get hurt by some comments made.
•since I am a feminist, I get excluded from agreeing with masculists. Just because I identify as a feminist.
•since I am a feminist, I get shit when I point out that misandry is real.
•since I am cis, I get excluded from agreeing with the trans* community because I don’t know the feeling.
•since I LOOK straight, I get excluded from the gay community even though I am pansexual..

So I think I will continue to stick with protesting discrimination in real life, because I am accepted at protests against police brutality of POC, accepted at pride, because they don’t care that I look straight, writing and talking about opinions on sexism in each and every context, and continue to sign petitions to make unisex public bathrooms, and petition to allow trans* people to be called what they identify as.

0/10. I don't know if this blog is serious or not, but I really hope you grow out of whatever it is that's causing you to broadcast such juvenile masculist garbage. As trolling, it's heavy handed and distasteful. As political statement, it's regressive and embarrassing. Please direct your energy elsewhere.

Wow, and within what feminist/poly-gendered/multi-sexual/trans-animal/man-hating femininity bubble off men hating, self righteous, gorillas do you reside? Pretty convenient though, I must say, to waltz onto my ask and declare the entire batch of my thoughts as heavy handed, regressive and embarrassing. Afraid I’m going to have to require some credentials, and the answering to a myriad of evidence to the contrary. Or, am I heavy handed because I express myself too authoritatively for you? I have the knowledge and education to back the authority in my posts. Perhaps you presumed I was a child or maybe one of your half man half women timid gay man friends of yours?
