Pro-feminist male looking for insight into gender, sex, and sexuality with as few pretenses and assumptions as possible, I hope. If you're willing, help me understand.
Disclaimer: I'm a male in a long-term monogamous relationship with a woman. We have two young children, who are also male. I'm always open to parenting ideas that'll make them into better people.
my SO and I are going to be witnesses for our friends’ wedding tomorrow
I got drafted to be the wedding photographer. Ultra casual, but it still makes me nervous as hell
My favorite thing about New Atheists who latch onto evolutionary psychology while acting superior to religious people is that apparently being hard-wired to seek larger meaning in the universe that often manifests are belief in a higher power is just something you have to get over to be a superior human being, but being hard-wired to want to fuck teenagers because reasons is inevitable and unavoidable.
Tim Dukeman (potential rapist)
Wes Widner is a self-admitted and unapologetic rapist. He lives in Roswell, Georgia.
(Note: I edited the submitted text to consolidate these two images on one post.)
My stomach literally hurts from reading this. It actually is making me sick. The idea that someone should have complete and total access to their partner’s body at any time they want is incredibly, incredibly disturbing.
Do these people really think that a husband can’t rape his wife? Like, is that what they’re seriously suggesting? And they’re ok with doing so on a public fucking post?
I’m truly overcome with all kinds or sadness and anger. I know stuff like this shouldn’t surprise me at this point, but I guess the fact that I have tears in my eyes right now is evidence that I still care about all this and I’m not a totally cynical, jaded person yet.
HUGE artifact of our rape culture right here folks, HUGE.
There isn’t enough fire in the world to burn the evil that is men who think this way.
I need feminism; because the bra straps of a twelve year old shouldn’t make a 40 year old married principal with two daughters “uncomfortable”
So am I allowed to walk around adult women who are mothers and grandmothers at work with my cock out or what
in what world is someone’s dick equivalent to a fucking bra strap
"…So now can I whip my dick out?"
-white boys everywhere
I almost posted a picture of the beautiful lunch I just finished packing for my kid and then I was like
No, better not, surely that is crossing some line
I have irrational contempt for Jean Kilbourne. She’s literally been singing the same song for over 20 years without making a damn bit of difference. She’s ineffective at everything except collecting ads and projecting them on a PowerPoint.
This is the risk you run when you make your living off oppression. You get complacent and boring.
She’s been singing the same song for twenty years, true, but the fact of the matter is, the things she’s singing about haven’t changed. Her words, whether written in ‘94 or ‘14, are never the less still relevant.
The fact that she hasn’t seen concrete results has very little to do with her complacency (and can it really be called complacency if she’s spent—as you say—20 years speaking out against it? Complacency is to become complacent, or in other words, permissive. That, she’s not.) and everything to do with the fact that she’s up against a multibillion dollar advertising and beauty industry fueled by a millenia of sexist oppression.
It’s unlikely that any one woman, no matter how well-presented her powerpoints, will be able to change that.
But as you said. You already recognize your dislike of her is irrational. My question to you is, if you recognize that it’s irrational, why persist in it?
