Men’s loyalty to violence is disturbing. When women want a life free of abuse, assault, threat, and coercion, men’s first suggestion is “learn to fight back. learn to defend yourself.” I don’t want my life to be a fight. I don’t want to “prove myself” through inflicting pain and fear. I don’t find violence and physical conflict fulfilling or self-actualizing. It’s exhausting and dehumanizing.
We still haven’t really talked about the fact that, of sixty-two mass shootings in the United States in three decades, only one was by a woman, because when you say lone gunman, everyone talks about loners and guns but not about men.
This is just one of the many reasons why we need our own movement! These men are supposed to be out here uplifting the community but only men can safely receive the free food they are handing out. Black women and girls are harassed and threatened with violence. This is traumatizing.
“Until cis people - especially heteronormative men — are able to interrogate their own toxic masculinity and realize their own gender performance is literally killing trans women, cis men will continue to persecute trans women and blame them for their own deaths.
If you think trans women should disclose and “be honest,” then why don’t you work on making the damn world safe for us to exist in the first place?
The “I’d kill a woman if I found out” rhetoric is precisely why so many women hold themselves so tight — the stigma and shame attached to our desires need to be abolished.”
She’s small. Short. Petite. Vertically challenged.She tells everyone what to do, and expects them to obey. Threats ensue if people don’t. Sometimes even physical violence.
Making large men the target of her orders just adds to the fun.
too emotional - converts every emotion to rage
can’t handle rejection
resorts to violence and psychological abuse
even in the most normal situations
considers his ego more important than human
unable to see from any other perspective than
considers himself an authority on every issue
he stumbles on
considers himself authority on issues of
groups he doesn’t belong to and knows nothing about their experiences
incapable of empathy
incapable of listening
demands insane amounts of emotional labor and
gives nothing in return/is not capable of
returning any of it
is a general pain in the ass
gives himself the righ to act as an
iresponsible child for entire
, expects others to respect and regard
him as an adult, demands rights of adult
abuses all and any power he has, uses all
resources he can hold down as a threat and blackmail, plays power games, uses
any chance to humiliate and put down anyone he can to assure himself of his
is somehow blind to every bit of damage he
will throw a tantrum/resort to violence/blame
victims/accuse and attack victims when being called out on anything, ever
will fight for his right to keep damaging and
destroying other people’s lives
doesn’t see women as people
no guilt, shame or self conscience about his
beliefs, actions or consequential damage to others
projects his behaviour on victims and finds ways to make victims responsible for his actions
“women are responsible for men not seeing them as human due to clothes and makeup they wear” = “women better do something abt my conviction they’re in fact objects i can violate or i will proceed to violate them and its their fault (not that anything they do would actually stop me from violating them)”
bad for women
high rates of rape, domestic abuse, manipulation, murder, violence, emotional and psychological abuse
bad for environment
bad for economy
bad for humanity in general
starts wars and kills people women created
makes himself look like the victim somehow all over again
thinks destroying everything and causing huge amounts of damage makes him god when it makes him an actual pest
isn’t reachable by empathy, compassion, logic, statistics, facts, experiences, humanity, suffering or issues of others in general
considers himself an epitome of logic and humanity based on assumption that everyone should suffer so he could have it better and how dare anyone point it out, that’s so irrational
other’s sufferings are just a game to him, also a game he thinks he should win, he will fabricate issues to no end just to win against victims and marginalized groups
doesn’t feel any guilt for manipulating and brainwashing others for his causes
no morals whatsoever
considers abuse justified unless of course it’s perpetuated against him, then it’s a tragedy and how could someone do such a thing they have no heart
doesn’t see irony when at the same time accuses victims for being oppressors and keeps them controlled via fear and threats
thinks everyone should forgive him for everything at all times without even pointing it out
irrationally paranoid about losing his dominance and controls and having anyone as much as point out the damage he makes, for it could lead to someone else taking control and then he’ll be at mercy of others, oh no, but we should all be lucky because being in his mercy was so great for the rest of us
is literally aware he had given us plenty of reasons for brutal and merciless retaliation and is thus scared out of his mind for us to take over and gain power to practice some justice
knows he’d have no value or importance without stepping on others and oppressing them, has to keep it going for the sake of keeping his ego inflated
also wants to be coddled and adored and perceived as a hero or protector at all time so he would feel good about everything he does, no matter the psychological damage to the person to pretend adoration and approval to their abuser
doesn’t care abt keeping someone in constant fear if that gives him what he wants, actually in some cases he finds it a bonus if he can keep someone permanently terrified, it means he’s important and powerful (yikes)
also lies, oh my god, no end to the lies, endless hypocrisy
likes pissing others off for fun but if someone pisses him off it’s an excuse to rape, beat up, abuse, murder, and violate that person in any possible way and they even “asked for it”
(add on to the list!)
honestly they’re such violent apathic control freaks and a narcissistic mess its time to get away from all of them, let them take their issues out on each other who cares we want liberation and to live free of all of this
lmao muslim women only wear hijab because koran says that women body is dirty and you can only show your body to your father or man. koran control women. i'm happy that i'm human who independently and made independently decisions. not follow some misogyny book writen by man god who thinks men are better than women. religons are shit. believe in yourself not in some god man.
first of all, thank you for hiding behind the anonymous icon and judging me for a small piece of cloth i put on my head, it just proves how ignorant you are <3
now let me tell you a few things about the quran (yes, quran not Koran), all too often, people read the quran selectively, taking phrases out of context,
use it for whatever point they want to make and i think you’re one of those people. unlike what you believe, islam is not a religion where women sit and take orders, actually I do not know of another religious tradition in which women were so central, so present, so active in its formative history, from the first years of islam women scholars taught judges and imams, issued fatwas, and traveled to distant cities. Some made lecture tours across the Middle East. the real question here is
“Are Men and Women Equal Before Allah?” and any person with a brain, who read the quran knows that the answere to this question is YES just one example is the verse 4:43 from sourat a’nissa’ ( the women), it starts by saying men and women are created “from one soul.” So the Koran starts from the assumption of absolute equality in creation.
“what do you think about all violent thing in writen in koran? murder, rape, violence, about men controlling everything women do? “ wow what kind of quran did you read??? bc the quran i read wasn’t like this, it was quite the opposit actually, the principle reason of fighting in Islam is self-defensive
“To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to fight), because they are wronged; and verily, God is most powerful for their aid…If God did not defend one set of people by means of another, then monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, in which the name of God is commemorated in abundant measure, would surely have been destroyed…” (22:39-40)
Further, Muslims are commanded not to be aggressive: “Fight in the cause of God those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for God loveth not transgressors” (2:190) In addition, when the enemy inclines toward peace, Muslims are commanded to cease hostilities: “But if the enemy incline towards peace, do thou (also) incline towards peace” (8:61). The guiding principle of Islam with respect to non-Muslims is one of tolerance and mutual respect, plain and simple: “God does not forbid you from dealing kindly and justly with those who do not fight you for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes: for God loveth those who are just.” (60:8) now let’s talk about hijab. Muslim society prizes female modesty.
Hijab frees women from being thought of as sexual objects of desire or from being valued for their looks, or body shape rather then their minds and intellect. No longer slaves to consumerism, hijab liberates women from the need to conform to unrealistic stereotypes and images dictated by the media. Women wearing hijab have expressed that dressing modestly and covering their hair, minimises sexual harassment in the workplace. The aura of privacy created by hijab is indicative of the great value Islam places upon women.
Hijab can be a symbol of piety and it can be a sign of great inner strength and fortitude. A woman wearing hijab becomes a very visible sign of Islam that’s why,
in the last 30 years hijab has emerged as a sign of Islamic consciousness. Many women see wearing the hijab as indicative of their desire to be part of an Islamic revival, especially in countries where the practice of Islam is discouraged or even forbidden.
whew that was long, sorry if i made many mistakes english isn’t my first language (not even 2nd), thank you.
Every time I’ve written about women fearing male violence, especially in reaction to women rejecting men, someone decides to dig up every case they can find of women being violent toward men, ignoring the fact most men do not change their daily routine or actions based on the threat of violence against men. No feminist is arguing women are incapable of violence toward men, but you shouldn’t be disingenuous and make false equivalences. You’d be hard pressed to find a man who makes decisions about the route he takes home from work, how he interacts with female strangers, what he wears, the speed and nature of his stride, his body language etc in public based on fear of violence from women, but the majority of women you talk to have done or regularly do all these things, especially at night.
The reason you see this difference has to do with the prevalence of male violence against women and how it is used as a tool of control, which isn’t the case of female violence against men.
