Y’know, it’s funny how stuff like the MRM and Gamergate says it’s against toxic radical feminism, but never actually does anything that undermines that, like supporting trans people or WoC or fighting racism in the feminist movement. Nah, they do the much more important work of calling women vile misogynistic slurs because they disagree with them.

sure we’ve never had a woman president, the majority of politicians and CEOs are men, a woman needs a masters degree just to make the same money as a man with a BA doing the same job, rape cases are grossly under prosecuted, and we teach young girls that they’re “asking for” rape based on what they’re wearing

but let’s talk about the REAL issues like how some woman on the internet is selling a coffee mug with the words “male tears” printed on it

Here's How A Fake Feminist Hashtag Like #EndFathersDay Gets Started And Why It'll Keep Happening

One of the big problems with hashtag activism is you’re never sure if it’s genuine or not.

There’s an organized, ongoing attempt by people from 4chan/pol, reddit, MRA/MRM sites, and Stormfront all working together to attack feminists on twitter– specifically Black feminists/womanists. 

https://twitter.com/hashtag/YourSlipIsShowing?src=hash #YourSlipIsShowing (created by sassycrass on twitter) covers some more of the issue, and so_treu, sassycrass, Blackamazon christocarbone and thetrudz are covering this really well, including posting screen shots of discussions of tactics. 

Here’s a storify about it: https://storify.com/sassycrass/yourslipisshowing-documenting-a-hoax and here’s a quick look at how an authoritative state like Azarbaijan can control and hijack hashtags - http://www.katypearce.net/shenanagins-again-and-again/ . The 4chan etc trolls are using the same tactics (signing up at the same time, RTing each other, using names and photos of real-looking people, etc).

They’re targeting specific people, overwhelmingly Black women who are active and outspoken (and often critical of) movement feminism.

(NB that the hashtag SolidarityIsForWhiteWomen mentioned in the buzzfeed article was created by karnythia as a way of commenting on the failings of institutionalized feminism and the white women who predominantly run it, ignoring the needs and concerns of WOC. Trolls picked up on it and posted a bunch of hateful and ridiculous shit.)


Marvelous storify by So_True here: https://storify.com/so_treu/yourslipisshowing-6-16-2014 . Lots of information including some history of white on Black violence and suppression on both a civilian and governmental level.

Note that trolls are grabbing photos/avatars of actual people, which is really gross, and some of them are also RTing tweets from actual people with words changed, or posting edited screenshots of tweets from real people to make them sound racist, abusive, etc.

Like Black people & other POC haven’t been discussing colorism for generations.

Please reblog this because it’s important for people to know about this user to avoid

The original owner of this URL is a really bad dude that has also gone by taylormoss7 or ask-an-mra-anything5. His MO seems to be that he reaches out to feminist bloggers and has a seemingly cordial message about bridging misunderstandings about the Men’s Rights Movement - do NOT engage him. Do NOT ask him questions, do NOT visit his blog. He is toxic as SHIT because eventually his messages become straight up death/rape threats. He left a particularly nasty message for misandry-mermaid

And his blog doesn’t get much better. He FREQUENTLY posts about wanting all feminists to die. He blames them for dmab infant circumcision, and it does not matter if you are against it, he hounds feminists about it constantly. It does not matter how many times you tell him - HIM SPECIFICALLY - you are against something, like the idea that a man can’t be raped - he WILL come into your ask box with nasty messages as if you 100% approve of it.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, he admitted on several occasions that he had plotted to murder the doctor who circumcised him. He only stopped when he learned the doctor was already dead, and he was sad that it wasn’t by his own hand.

He has also used the n word repeatedly and made expressly anti-Black statements that he wrote off as being okay because he’s 2% gay and would make out with the Black male celebrity he found attractive? So yeah, avoid his blogs.

So please PLEASE save yourself and block this guy if you see him!! Report his blog immediately! He has once again deleted, but I anticipate he will be back. He never stays gone for long.

Please reblog and stay safe

the fact that anti-feminist women exist totally means we don't need feminism!

their voice literally drowns out the millions of women who believe we do need it!

I mean it’s not like we had women who opposed women’s suffrage or women working outside of the home! Hahahaha no it’s not like that at all!!
