We dare you to say we don’t live in a rape culture.

Amazingly, not The Onion:

“[W]e now have young men telling Bloomberg News that they basically view their female peers as rape bombs just waiting to explode and ruin their lives.”

After 10 years of hearing kitchen, sandwich, driving, fake geek girls, being physically weak, and PMS Jokes. I do not care about hurting the feelings of boys with (stereotypically masculine)jokes.

How does that help the gender inequality problem we have in this world? Injustice should be fought with justice, not more injustice.

Thank you for giving me the responsibility of saving this world. I will save us all.

He called on parents to take responsibility for their sons’ actions, saying parents must teach their sons the difference between right and wrong.

"When we hear about these rapes our heads hang in shame," Mr Modi said.

"Young girls are always asked so many questions by their parents, like ‘where are you going?’. But do parents dare to ask their sons where they are going?" he asked.

Those who commit rape are also someone’s sons. It’s the responsibility of the parents to stop them before they take the wrong path,” he added.

Okay, say what you want about him, but this is a big deal. This is Prime Minister Modi’s first Independence Day address since being elected. And instead of using this time to talk about Pakistan, like every other Independence Day speech in the past, he stood up there and talked about INDIA’s need for improvement. And amongst his topics, he talked about rape.

And he didn’t describe it as “accidental” or “boys making mistakes”, and he didn’t state that women need to “dress more dignified”, all of which have been said by other Indian politicians. For once, we’re hearing someone put the blame on the rapist, and actually calling out parents to raise their sons properly. Like everyone else, I’m still hoping Modi isn’t another PM who is all talk.

Women forcing themselves to be pregnant.

I was debating oh-snap-pro-choice , ash, and she that forced pregnancy is torture because the UN said so . Thing is torture usually requires two people; the torturer and the tortured. But in the case of pregnancy, the women is the only entity making direct decisions that pertain to her getting…

MMA Fighter Who Brutally Beat His Ex: Men's Oppression Is 'Worse Than Slavery'

misandry-mermaid:

MMA fighter War Machine, originally known as Jon Koppenhaver, was arrested on Saturday for brutally assaulting (ahem… ATTEMPTING TO MURDER) porn actress Christy Mack, his ex-girlfriend. 

The last time he was in prison for assault was in 2010. During his time there, War Machine kept weekly “prison blog” updates, where he whined about life in prison and the oppression of  “alpha males” in society. He wrote:

“The oppression of MEN is worse than oppression of Jews in Nazi Germany, worse than the slavery of blacks in early America … I’m not exaggerating either.

The oppressor has learned to kill MEN while their bodies remain alive. And with your ‘spirit extinguished’ you’re nothing but a f*cking zombie, a shell of a man, waiting to die. And THAT is just as bad as death itself.”  [source]

“So it’s Christmas Day and I’m laying in my bunk wondering, ‘Why the hell do American men get married!?’ There is one guy in here for slapping his wife, one here for yelling at his wife, and one here for beating some guy’s *ss that disrespected his wife. WTF!? If your wife is being a b*tch you can’t slap her, if your wife is yelling at you, God forbid you yell back, and if some *sshole hurts your wife, you cannot protect her!”

“Next thing you know it will be illegal to f*ck your wife! LMAO! Maybe then, MEN in this country will get the f*cking hint and MOVE! This country forces you to be a b*tch! And then you go to jail!” [source]

it’s weird how straight boys will find out that a girl is bisexual and then think that girl wants to fuck them with another girl. And if they find out a guy is gay they think that guy wants to fuck them.

No one wants to have sex with you. You are are not cute. At all.

so i go to a really conservative school, and the topic of abortion was brought up in class (they were talking about “evil deeds” and shit like that)
a girl asked “ok so i understand that you think that abortion is wrong, but would you even stretch so far as to say…

❝ What if sex work was seen as normal? She said it encourages rape by making men feel entitled to sex. Has being able to buy a piece of pie ever made you feel entitled to assault a waitress or smash a pie case to get a piece? No, this is all about her discomfort with other people having sex in ways she doesn’t approve of. But there’s no acceptable universe where her moral comfort is more important than other people’s safety. ❞
