Why people are so annoyed by FEMINISM latelyOR: WHY WANNABE FEMNINISTS THAT TRUELY ARE ALL ABOUT THEMSELVES ARE HARMFUL TO SOCIETY.Why people are so annoyed by FEMINISM lately1 month ago in Personal More Like This
I'VE GOT ENOUGH of attention whores who call themselves "feminists" and discuss OVER MY HEAD what should be "good“ for me ( as a woman) or what I should be "enraged“ of / about without even taking into concern what I WANT, WHAT I HAVE TO SAY or WHAT REALLY BOTHERS ME!
(Disclaimer: since some did not seem to understand what/ whom I was referring to. I obviously said "wannabe feminists" to describe a small but loud group of people that only use feminism to promote themselves. I was looking for a word to not become needlessly insultive, so I chose "wannabe" to point out how they are fake. Those fakes are to differ from people who really work on helping society when it comes to feminism and/ or gender equality, which from my point of view affects every gender, not just women.)
Today I witnessed another one of these

I consider myself as a feminist. I want equal rights for BOTH genders. I recognize that both men and women are being oppressed in different ways.
For example; I've watched a couple videos where they have done some social experiments about domestic violence. People always seem to react FAST when it's a girl being hit or abused. But when the roles switch and it's the girl hitting and abusing the guy, no one seems to bat an eye. I've even seen people stand and laugh.
It's really important to remember that it goes both ways. There are many instances where men are being oppressed. I think there are more instances where women get oppressed but that does not make oppression of guys less wrong.
I really just felt like making this clear so that there's no

Highlight at 4:36 when Anita asks "Where is that feminist army?".
To which half the crowd cheer, not realizing that silence was the preferred reaction
she was going for (when asking where an apparent imaginary army of feminists with
sock accounts that send her threats online are). They kinda gave themselves away
there, the inept lunatics.
Seriously tho, look at how modern feminists act when they're called out.
**They don't want to debate, they don't want to have a discussion... no, instead
they just call you a misogynist/sexist/rape apologist in an effort to shut you up.
FEMINISM, BITCHAngry, hairy, bra-burning man haters.FEMINISM, BITCH1 month ago in Personal More Like This
For many people, these are the connotations associated with feminists. Why? Perhaps it’s because we live in a patriarchal society. Perhaps it’s because misogynistic terms and words have become acceptable things to call women. Perhaps it’s because people would rather ignore the problem and discriminate against the people trying to fight the problem than actually help out.
Maybe it’s just because so many members of society don’t understand; aren't educated – are simply not taught the values of benevolence and equality. And I think that’s sad.
Feminism is defined as “the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men” – not the superiority of women over men. Feminism fights for women’s rights to equality – because we will not sit down and allow ourselves to be thought of as having less basic rights as a human beca

What is Feminism?So, at the end of the year for my freshman year of high school for history class, we were to do research on a modern issue. Once the sign up sheet got around to me, one of the only topics left was women's rights. So that's what I decided to do my report on. However, when I mentioned this to my friends at lunch later that day, one of my friends said, "Oh. You aren't one of those crazy feminist freaks, are you?" and, without really thinking about it, I replied, "Of course not."What is Feminism?1 month ago in Personal More Like This
However, this conversation got me thinking. I started to wonder; just what is feminism? As I did my research for my class, I found out what this word means, so I thought that I would take this time to erase some common misconceptions about this topic.
Feminism does not mean you hate men. Not all men are assholes, and I know this. You know what? Guys are great. Some of the best people I know are guys, including my dad and a lot of my friends. They have never made me feel like a lesser person because I am female, no

This is what a Victim Blamer Looks Like.The Good Man Project wrote an article giving advice to men who are attacked by the women who claim to love them. The GMP's idea of advice basically amounts to "sit there and take it".This is what a Victim Blamer Looks Like.2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Toy Solider has copied the article onto their site (GMP has taken it article down, most likely due to backlash from the few sane people left in this shithole we call society).
Here is the article copied on Toy Solider http://toysoldier.wordpress.com/2014/08/26/the-good-men-project-ran-an-article-blaming-male-victims/
Here is an archived version of the GMP page this article was on https://archive.today/T56WV
Te article is full of all sorts of "goodies" for male victims such as...
Not to be upset or angry at your attacker
Go back to your attacker and apologize for being attacked
Don't leave if your attacker is she repeats her behavior
If possible, smooth over any tension by treating your attacker to freakin' coffee
Also don't run away or fight back until you've down all that you can to appease your at
Don't let drunk chicks inA man on Forbes, who has no discernible connection to the MRM, is giving college men some pretty good advice on how to protect themselves from drunken women.

But the real reason you shouldn't let drunk chicks in is because, by the new standards promoted by feminists, women not thinking adults, but walking hazards to every male around them.

Have any of you heard of Anita Sarkeesian?
Well, she is a spokesperson for feminism && how gaming culture / video games like to treat women as props. (Before anyone jumps down my throat, I love video games. Love em.) This lady is right - the gaming industry sometimes sees females as nothing more than an item, something to be used to attract the eyes of teenage - 20+ yo men.
This lady is INCREDIBLE, and she is one of the leading speakers on Feminism && what it stands for.
She was set to give a speech on Feminism at USU, but received this email:
READ THAT LETTER, CAREFULLY.
THOSE ARE THREATS AGAINST HER LIFE - AND OTHER CAMPUS FEMALES LIVES - SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY ARE FEMINISTS.
This is a MALE. A MAN who is upset because woman don't want to be harassed, because we don't want to be props
