men are pigs


I totally understand the whole feminism and equal rights thing and it’s totally awesome that women are finding this confidence within themselves and each other but there’s a serious issue when you’re tearing down one gender to boost your own. Some feminist are fucking insane and just come off sounding like feminazis. I get it you don’t need a man in your life and I totally agree with you, but that doesn’t mean that you should just start saying that “ALL MEN ARE PIGS! ALL MEN SHOULD DIE! ALL MEN ARE USELESS!” because that just means that you’re making no progress for your cause. Once you start spewing hateful and ignorant shit like that it makes me question what you stand for. Everyone should be treated equally, no ifs ands or buts about it, but don’t think just because you think you’re fighting for a good cause that you can just start saying bad shit. It makes you look bad, and it makes the cause look bad. I understand that women need feminism, but do it in a logical and peaceful way.

I need some advice. There's this guy at school, AND HE WONT LEAVE ME ALONE!!!! Everyon knows that he likes me and he won't just let me be. Its not like he has any redeaming qualities either. He's stuck up, sexist, racist, etc. Like, just cause I'm bi-ro doesn't mean I don't have standards. How do I tell him to get off my ass without outing myself (in a catholic school) and yelling "IM GAY AND YOUR AN ASS" in his face?

I’ve had this happen before, and I’ve found being weird/annoying to them drives men away. Speak to him (or better yet, insult him) in another language. Tell him you’d sooner go out with a girl than him. If you’re talking with a group and he tries to butt in, turn your back towards him (and if he’s persistent, look over your shoulder and say “sorry, I’m talking with my friends” to tell him that he is not welcome). Speaking of your friends, convince them to help you get rid of him – strength in numbers, after all. Ignore him. Straight-up tell him to back off. You don’t have to be nice to him if he’s bothering you. Just be firm and don’t give him any reason to think you’re into him.

Fuck You for cheating on me. Fuck you for reducing it to the word cheating. As if this were a card game, and you sneaked a look at my hand. Who came up with the term cheating, anyway? A cheater, I imagine. Someone who thought liar was too harsh. Someone who thought devastator was too emotional. The same person who thought, oops, he’d gotten caught with his hand in the cookie jar. Fuck you. This isn’t about slipping yourself an extra twenty dollars of Monopoly money. These are our lives. You went and broke our lives. You are so much worse than a cheater. You killed something. And you killed it when its back was turned.”

Despite popular belief, feminism is not anti-masculism. Feminism is about making men AND women equal. Sexism affects all genders, so the people who attack masculism are NOT feminists. So please, stop accusing feminism of being a hate movement.

As a feminist, I know that not all men are pigs or rapists or sexist. I know that there are plenty of women who are pigs or rapists or sexist too. So why do people get mad at feminism because some people who claim to be “feminists” are committing terrible sexist crimes in the name of feminism? Those people are not feminists! Feminism is about equality of all genders. Just like not all men are misogynists, not all feminists are crazy anti-masculists. 


Anita Sarkeesian, better known for her youtube channel “Feminist Frequency” and her “Tropes vs Women in Videogames” series has currently been FORCED to move out of her house as she feared for her safety. 

She repeatly received several harassing messages threatening murder and other violent activities. As always, men oppressing a strong women with convections of changing the world for the better. 

We hope Anita it’s now in safety and she continues her valuable work for feminism.

In the midtime, there’s a petition to shut down steam as protest for the constant harrasment women have to deal in the videogame industry. Need any more proof of men’s aggressive nature?

radfems like:

we’re all about the liberation of women

but also we refuse to see any kind of empowerment and equality that exists

we’re all about people showing their emotions and being themselves

but we drink from men’s tears mugs and personally attack you if you disagree with us on any ground

misandry isnt real

but we paste it all over our blog and wear it as a trophy anyways
