Lets mug him
being a cishet looks boring why do people do that
Idk maybe bc sexuality/gender isnt based on how cool or interesting an individual wants to look
yeah but why be boring when u can be awesome and not cishet
yeah but why treat lgbt+ identities like some trendy fashion accessory that ppl can just slap on to look cool when u could not act like a complete idiot
- me: i don't even care. i'm not going to talk about this anymore.
- me: and you know what else? [2000 word rant]
Q:Sorry to sound ignorant, but why do MRAs and Feminists act like arch enemies when they're both working towards the same goal? I mean, MRAs want to deal with issues that men face, while feminists want to deal with women's issues. I do agree the women definitely face more issues than men and MRAs do tend to be very whiny sometimes. Even so, I don't understand why so many Feminists and MRAs hate each other. You both want equality, so why not work together?
If you took a look at MRAs online then you’d see why a movement for gender equality/liberation from the Patriarchy/general goodness and the progression of humanity, wouldn’t want a thing to do with them.
No. Just no.
The MRA do not want equal rights and there is a HUGE difference between feminism and the MRA. Feminists want true gender equality. They want women to have the same rights as men. They want everybody to be free of the constrictive gender roles caused by the patriarchy.
The MRA are a bunch of misogynists who are infuriated by the notion of women’s rights. The idea of them not being able to oppress women angers them. If you don’t believe me then check out some of their stuff. They encourage forms of violence against women and vilify feminists for no good reason.
The MRA don’t even care about men’s rights. When they say ‘men’s rights’ they really mean straight, white, middle-class men’s rights. If you support equality do not be an MRA.
Well colour me intrigued. Disappointed, but intrigued.
Hasty Generalization fallacy? Check.
Ad hominem fallacy? Check.
False dichotomy fallacy? Check.
Now, I’m not even an MRA, but based on what I’ve read, more often than not it’s been feminists derailing MRA discussions. Case in point:
Why is that? From each video it appears that the protestors don’t even know what the conferences will be discussing, yet because it is from a Men’s Rights group they automatically assume it is hate speech? What are these feminists afraid of?
For a group that claims to advocate for men’s rights you seem to be doing a damned good job of shutting up any platform for reasonable discussion, even when it’s a woman leading the discussion. Weird how people can say one thing and do something else entirely, innit?
Feminists on here are outraged by the thought of them not being the only victims. That women have the power to be the aggressor or the bigot. Of a heartbeat or a single neurone being spent on anything but them.
The idea of more awareness being given to things like eating disorders, rape, domestic violence or suicide and depression in men bothers them: those are female problems dammit! How dare you ever suggest that a woman is ever the victim?
Not to mention their treatment of minority men. The idea of not being able to have gay men under their thumb as political fashion accessories, pets and mouthpieces angers them: Jezebel constantly declares that safe spaces for gay men should not only cater for the amusement and pleasure of straight women, they MUST prioritise straight women and treat them like queens: straight women not being showered in free drinks, compliments on how fierce their dresses and being allowed to cut to the front of lines is “misogyny”. Catfishing gay men on grindr for a feminist art show! An amazing counterattack on misogyny and sexism and sexual harassment!
MRAs vilify feminists for no reason! Oh please, you think womenagainstfeminism are the whores of Babylon. Look at your reaction to an MRA meeting.
“The MRA don’t even care about men’s rights. When they say ‘men’s rights’ they really mean straight, white, middle-class men’s rights. If you support equality do not be an MRA.”
Is that why the big feminist issues on this site aren’t things like FGM or fistulas or little girls being raped by HIV positive men or human trafficking: no it’s always shit like Ban Bossy, Disney Princesses, videogames, “thin privilege” and how you are oppressed because you can’t wear booty shorts to school.
Piss off, Wendy White Guilt.
Well maybe if you feminists actually allowed the MRM to speak for themselves and have meetings, than maybe you would understand that they aren’t misogynists and men are discriminated much more than women are in today’s society. And no, these men’s issues were not created by a patriarchy that no longer exists in the west, many of these issues such as child custody being biased in favor of women, men not receiving support for domestic violence, and female-on-male rape not being considered rape were caused by feminists (see Tender Years Doctrine, the Duluth Model and primary aggressor policies, and the fact that feminists in the UK fought for the legislation that prevent females from being charged with rape). By blaming men’s issues on the patriarchy, you are really victim blaming and telling men that it is their fault for losing custody over their children and not receiving any support for rape and domestic violence because they’re part of the patriarchy and they had it coming to them.
Also, OP is fucking Claudia Boelyn, so of course this post is so fucking ignorant and idiotic.
