stupid onion quotes

ONION LOGIC: Women are so superior to men that they need men to keep them company, marry them, buy them things, and open doors for them.   Because they’re so superior.  Men do these things for women as a sign of submission and admittance to their inferiority.  It would be unthinkable for a woman to ever do these things for a man!

From the video “WOMEN & LOW SELF-ESTEEM”

So I’m not even going to touch the blatant heteronormativity here, and just say that I hold doors open for people (regardless of their gender) because it’s a nice thing to do.  I pick up tabs sometimes because it’s a nice thing to do.  I don’t see this as catering to somebody or a service to them, I just see it as being nice.

And this is the same video where he mentions that even ugly women can still get a man because they have a vagina.  He refers to women as life factories and implies that this is where their value comes from.  So women who are infertile, or women who choose not to reproduce are therefore worthless.  Way to go, Onion!

ONION LOGIC: Everybody who cuts and doesn’t seek help is clearly only doing it for attention and doesn’t have mental health problems because all teenagers are depressed and only teenagers cut.  Posting pictures of your cutting to the internet isn’t a cry for help, it’s just a way for you to get followers and reblogs.  Professional counseling is available for free to everybody, so why don’t you use it?

From the video “Emo Cutters”

There you go, trivializing important issues again…  No, Onion.  A lot of people who self harm hide it so that people won’t think less of them.  A lot of people who self harm really do want to die because they feel worthless.  And no, that “free” help isn’t available to everybody.  Help isn’t always free.  It’s not as easy as talking to somebody and then suddenly you don’t want to do it anymore.  I seriously don’t understand how a person can be so ignorant on so many issues, it just boggles my mind.
