"if feminism is a hate movement towards men, why is my boyfriend a feminist?"
Your boyfriend is a feminist because - like most men - he likes women and actually can’t help but like women, as he evolved to put their safety and security before his own. Your boyfriend is a feminist because that natural care and concern was exploited by a political ideology that convinced him with a 40-year torrent of feminist propaganda that women in the west are living in a perpetual state of emergency and terror caused by men just like himself. He believes supporting their incessant scapegoating and hate-mongering makes him a ‘good man’. He’s wrong.
"if rape culture doesn’t exist, why was one girl I know sexually assaulted three times in a decade and told it was because of the way she dressed?"
This is a non-argument, based only on your own personal experiences that I have no way of verifying and even if I did, one single individual’s story can not be offered up as some sort of convincing proof on a matter concerning 3.5 billion other individuals.
It’s like me saying “if we don’t live in a burglary culture, how come one friend of mine (who may or may not actually exist) was burgled four times last year (even though no-one else I know was)? AND the police had the nerve to tell him he could have lessened the chances of that happening if he had not just left his door wide open each time he left the house! Victim blaming!!!”
"why did a fraternity boy think he was entitled to sleep with girls so he threw a fit and killed seven people in california?"
If we really lived in a ‘rape culture’, wouldn’t Elliot Rodger simply have raped all those tall blonde goddesses he longed for, rather than killing 4 men, 2 women, and then himself? After all, in a ‘rape culture’, no-one would have minded, would they? No one would have stopped him, or offered any kind of punishment for that whatsoever. Would they? I mean, if we really lived in a rape culture? Something to think on.
"why am I not allowed to wear a top showing my midriff at school because "it distracts boys"?"
Because a) it does distract boys, (and again, you can blame evolution and biology for that) and b) there are dress codes in pretty much all schools that are imposed on both boys and girls. It’s a way of preparing children for the world of work and adult society later on. Are the boys at your school allowed to sit in class in cut-off tops that only cover their nipples and let their bellies hang out? Well then.
"why am I afraid to walk the streets in the middle of the day?"
Because, like your boyfriend, you’ve had your poor young mind utterly mangled by 40 years of propaganda that has brainwashed you into believing rapists and murderers lurk behind every streetcorner. Again, this is a non-argument, based on nothing more than your own personal beliefs projected onto the world at large. It makes no more sense than me saying “if spiders aren’t taking over the world and planning to enslave us all then why am I afraid of spiders?!!! Answer me that, huh? Why am I afraid???!!!!!!?”
#YesAllPeople(ThatAreWomenAndPoC) have to endure spidersogyny
There are at least 34,000 known species of spiders. Less than 20 produce venom that are dangerous to humans; even WOC. Schrodinger’s spider does not exist. The chances you encounter a dangerous spider or M&M are extremely slim. #notallspiders.
&b4 you…my mother was totally bitten by a spider once and she is a WOC. It took almost a year for the bite to heal but she didn’t die. #notallspiders.
BuT it MiGhT hAvE kIlLeD hEr. Ur MoM iS nOt ReAlLy PoC
OmG. Only if she was allergic and then it would have been totally her fault for having an over-active hysteric immune system. She should have known to have a shot of epinephrine for emergencies.
Lyke don’t erase my mother’s identity OK. ALL of her identity is wrapped up in her WOColorness. She would die without her connection to the hivemind.
OHEMGEE VICTIM SHAMING *insert fallacy of your choice here*
until spiders are appreciated for the good that they do, i do not see the harm in shaming victims of spider bites. call me a spider bite apologist all you want. not all spiders kill people when they bite. some spiders never bite at all, yet they are feared with the poisonous ones. smh.
SMASH THE ARACHNIARCHY
fuck all you guys, spiders oppress me. I was on the shitter last night and a spider walks right up beside me and starts leering. I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO BE RAPED! #kill all spiders
And most importantly: why do spiders on public transport have to sit with all their legs so far apart?
