save the enemy

anonymous asked:

As an anti-feminist, what is your opinion on male feminists? I've read about how feminists recruit young women to join their side, but what about men?

Feminism teaches young women to be helpless, hopeless victims of men, that’s an obvious fact. Another obvious fact is where there’s a damsel in distress, there’s always going to be a white knight to save her. The problem we have here though is these damsels aren’t really in distress and they don’t really want to be saved by the enemy. 

The enemy of feminism is the patriarchy (men), male privilege (men), toxic masculinity (men), rape culture (men), mansplaining (men), the male gaze, (men) - so in order to be an “ally” or to simply be seen as a decent human being in the eyes of a feminist, the man must confess his guilt for being born with a dick, his deep shame for having testosterone and turn his nose up with repulsion at his once fellow men as he waves goodbye to his old life and enters the world of feminism. 

But why would a man go through all of this nonsense and throw himself into the pack of wolves? Well, he knows that by calling himself a feminist, 1) he can be seen as a more enlightened individual and gain social acceptance in the “cool club” and 2) he thinks it gives him a better chance of getting laid. Sadly, not many women want feminist boyfriends and the ones who do, well they just love showing their “re-educated” pet off to everyone. 

It reminds me of a post I made last year:

7 Reasons Why Feminists Dating Feminist Men Is A Bad Idea

1. The sex will suck.

He will embrace the Yes Means Yes standard of sexual consent and any hopes you have of coming home after a long shitty day at work to be swept off your feet by a man overcome with his lust for you can be dumped in the circular file right now. He will greet you at the door, notice you are not in the best of moods (a good start, I admit) and then launch into enthusiastic consent. “May I place my arms around you and give you a consoling embrace? Are you comfortable with me kissing your cheek? May I assist you in removing your coat? This may involve some contact with the upper portion of my body. Do you feel at ease with that?” By the time he has your coat off, you will want to punch him in the face, but because you believe in true equality, you will understand that violence against everyone is wrong and you will refrain from doing so. The rest of the evening won’t get better. By the time he requests permission to remove your panties, you will be choking on disgust and you will go to sleep on the couch.

2. Your confidence will plummet as he encourages you to wallow in your victimhood and blame everyone but yourself for your failures.

When you start to talk about why your day was so shitty he will nod sympathetically and (after obtaining consent) pat you on the back tenderly and make soothing affirmative noises as you search for someone to blame. He will agree that it was the baristas fault you spilled latte all over that Women’s Studies report you had to hand in because she made the coffee too hot. He will agree that the bitch in the next cubicle is vindictive and steals your ideas all the time. He will agree that nothing is ever your fault and in doing so, he will basically be saying that you are a child and your actions are futile and you might as well just give up now because there is no way you are strong enough and smart enough to navigate the world of grown-ups.

3. He will empower you by never letting you fall flat on your ass and you will never learn a goddamn thing.

Your feminist boyfriend will be your constant crutch. He will be there to support you no matter how stupid or irrational or just plain idiotic your actions. He will never hold you accountable and will always make excuses for you. He will demand that everyone make allowances for you and your bad habits will become so in-grained they will become second nature. He will accept you sulking and endlessly repeating the same stupid mistake, assuring you that everyone else is wrong and you are right. He will be supportive, loyal and make sure you never grow or evolve as a person.

4. You will look like hell as he encourages you to “reject patriarchal beauty standards.”

Your feminist boyfriend will encourage you to spend the 20 minutes you usually waste combing your hair and applying the bare minimum amount of make-up you need to look professionally groomed and polished in bed. He will go ahead and shave and keep his hair and neckbeard trimmed and neat but that’s just part of male privilege and it is always and only misogyny to suggest that women need to meet similar standards. He will reassure you that hair and skin oils are perfectly natural and feminine odors are always pleasing, except to those that genuinely hate women. Only insecure men are uncomfortable with a natural woman.

5. Your feminist boyfriend will want to share everything with you. No seriously, everything. He’ll even have sympathy menstrual cramps.

Your feminist boyfriend will reject traditional masculine pursuits such as any sports or entertainment that involves the glorification of violence or unrealistic body standards or the depiction of traditional gender roles. He will reject most movies and television shows as perpetuating harmful gender roles and promoting rape culture and you will have to hide your erotic romance book under the mattress.

6. He’ll actually cut your sentences off and tell other people what your opinion is for you more often than an old-fashioned macho man will.

Your feminist boyfriend will know all the talking points and will insert himself into any conversation with catch-phrases like “wage gap” and “heteronormativity” and “cis-gendered” and “privilege” and when you fail to make mention of these important issues yourself, he will finish sentences for you, because he knows exactly how you feel on every subject and wants to show his support and admiration for you. You will really want to punch him now and you might question whether some people really are “asking for it”.

7. You will be a sad, lonely, cranky, selfish, teetering on the edge of insanity basket case when he leaves you for that hot chick in tight yoga pants who knows how to cook.

Eventually, your feminist boyfriend will decide adults are way more fun to hang around with than giant toddlers who have tantrums and blame everybody else for their own problems. Adults who understand how human sexuality work and who respect the differences between men and women are also a lot more fun to be with. You’ll watch him throw his arm around her (without asking first!), steer her down the street towards the cinemas playing the latest film of the patriarchy and furiously seethe while you tell yourself that he’s proof that all cis straight males are scum. But maybe, just maybe, one day you’ll realize the good men haven’t gone anywhere. They just don’t want anything to do with you.

so I will stand by your side and we will face whatever is coming for you together

So, I’m thinking about a Power Rangers AU with the seven

Percy- Blue Ranger
Jason- Red Ranger
Frank- Black Ranger
Piper- Pink Ranger
Hazel- Yellow Ranger

Annabeth and Leo would be a human version of Zordon and Alpha who are also Rangers /White and Green/ but most of the time they stay behind the scenes to plan the strategy/create new weapons for the rangers.

okay but i would love an overwatch map that is the ruins of what was the overwatch HQ in switzerland
imagine it being like mei’s antartica map; there is no point to save or payload to escort
it’s just kill the opposing team
and for a base in ruins because of betrayal and infighting, the place where overwatch unoffically ended, there isnt an objective that suits it better.

Supernatural fans always talk crap about older John 

but he loved his sons

He wanted to give his sons everything

He wanted Dean to have a home and Sam to go to college

He saved Dean by giving his enemy his soul and dying

 because he knew Dean could take care of his other son 

And they deserved to have a life

He made mistakes, sure, but so has everyone on the show

Talk crap all you want

John Winchester was an amazing man and a good father

Lets do a headcount

Eren is pissed and maybe traumatized and can’t shift anymore

Mikasa is still injured and out of ammo

Armin had his skin burnt off of him and fell 50 meters

Jean is injured

Connie is injured

Sasha is fucking knocked out

Bert lost a majority of his limbs

Reiner took a spear to the face. Again.

Hange is immortal

Moblit is probably dead

Levi is running low on ammo

Erwin is still bleeding out/ unknown

Marlo is dead

Really doesnt matter which part of the fandom you’re from, everything is terrible right now

The objective of the new enemies is Evangelyne?  or her baby? for this we see that attack their home? … Our heroes must save Evangelyne?……..
enemies have managed to control the Eliacube? or the Eliacube came to life?….. (remember : Orgonax is the Mechasm whose heart was stolen by Qilby to create the first Eliacube )…..the new enemy is a Mechasm?? …………
I want to know more!! :(   

I love how close Alex and Nicolas became over the course of the series because it starts off with Nicolas keeping his distance from Alex and it was pretty obvious in Alex’s perspective. I also want to remind everyone that Nicolas was the one who suggested that he should kill Alex so they wouldn’t get in trouble? I’m not sure how to define how they think of each other but their views of each other have certainly developed.

She thought she was just “there” and it was pretty awkward, especially since she couldn’t communicate with him very well.

Poor nicolas is running up the stairs and(WHOOPS small mistake, thank you @raimagnolia who pointed out that’s worick running up the stairs, not nic..) theres even a translators note saying how “nicolas doesnt like being in the same place with a girl”

even if you don’t ship nicolex, this post focuses on their character development

Well. Here’s finally the finished drawing, sorry it took me quite a while ;w;
Actually I have a lot of work to do and I wasn’t supposed to draw tg fanart at all! However, your ask really got me, anon! I just wanted to do a quick sketch, but I had too much fun and in the end…voila.
When you said “seeing” Hide getting attacked, my first thought was that Kaneki would instantly rush in to save him. So I drew that. I hope you like it a little :’)

The elf with a busted ass

So before we start we have two dwarves (cleric and fighter), a halfling rogue, a human monk, a captive goblin prisoner(swaddled and on the clerics back) and an elf duskblade.

As we try to sneak through a dungeon every person manages, even the dwarves in bulky armor. Except the elf. The elf rolled a 1. And our dm decided to make it interesting. Being level one characters our dm says that if the situation merits, we need to roll a fortitude save for overly gross things.

He makes the elf fart. It was so vile that our rogue and monk start vomiting. The cleric makes the save but the fart woke up the goblin on his back. The goblin started to vomit on the dwarf. Then the dwarf begins vomiting. It is so bad that when the encounter of 3 giant rats appeared, the first rat had to make a fortitude save. He made an enemy vomit.

He now has been banned from drinking dwarven ale.

You know just… a terrible quote?

“You don’t have to 8e a good person to 8e a hero.”

Like… that’s not how that works at all. A better version from the Deadpool movie

“Four or five moments - that’s all it takes to become a hero. Everyone thinks it’s a full-time job. Wake up a hero. Brush your teeth a hero. Go to work a hero. Not true. Over a lifetime there are only four or five moments that really matter. Moments when you’re offered a choice to make a sacrifice, conquer a flaw, save a friend - spare an enemy. In these moments everything else falls away… ”

The first excuses flaws and pushes off responsibility
The latter actually explains that you only need to be good when it really matters. Learn to be good, but always be the good person when needed

It just means you are human versus the first saying you’re allowed to be shit

And yes I am still pissed about this

    “Why,” he asked. “Why did you save her?”
    She dragged a hand through her hair. A white bandage around her upper arm peeked through her shirt with the movement. He hadn’t even been conscious for that wound. He stifled the urge to demand to see it, assess the injury himself - and tug her close against him.
    “Because that golden-haired witch, Asterin…,” Aelin said. “She screamed Manon’s name the way I screamed yours.”
    Rowan stilled. His queen gazed at the floor, as if recalling the moment.
    “How can I take away somebody who means the world to someone else? Even if she’s my enemy.” 

Aelin is fierce. And brave. And a badass. And the reason she saved her enemy? Because she couldn’t stand the thought of someone else losing their soulmate. Losing Rowan would destroy her, just as losing Manon would destroy Asterin. And she couldn’t let that happen. To her enemies.
