I just wanted to make a point about something that you said to an ask, that most men “don’t want to work with feminists to change custody laws.”
I just wanted to point out that we don’t NEED to change custody laws. Exaggerated complaints by men aside, actual studies show that when men actually want custody, they overwhelmingly get it. Even if they abuse their wife. Even if they abuse their child(ren). Even if they’re alcoholics or drug addicts or only want custody to spite and hurt their ex.
So uh, yeah, dudes, tell me again how child custody is skewed in favor of the mother?
Wow. Holy damn wow. Thanks for pointing that out. I am even more hardcore side-eyeing the absolute HELL out of MRAs atm.
Dear Feminist (The Aftermath)
I received a depressingly predictable response to my post last night from a plethora of people who seemingly only read the words “feminist” and “calm down.”
My point was clear: stop just losing your shit on the people who are trying to understand and help us understand.
But again, the knee-jerk reaction by the angrier feminists (please note this specification) exposed the misdirected blind rage that’s rife within the movement. Was I telling the movement as a whole to calm down? No. Was I generalising all feminists as being angry? No. Was I ‘making it about me’? What the fuck does that even mean? Also, interestingly, a lot of folk assumed it was directed at women. I don’t recall specifying genders.
All I want is for the world to be a better, equal place. If that means pissing a few people off and telling the folk who are actively halting progress to stop being a fucking prick then so be it.
Save your rage. Equality isn’t a secret little club that only you get to know the password to.
