you kids these days with your rapidly growing concern for the state of the world and your knowledge of important issues at increasingly younger ages despite having been told your opinions don’t matter by the adults who put you in these situations

Ah, yes, kids these days with their inflated sense of self importance who think they’re helping the world by angrily blogging about issues they actually know very little about and trying harder and harder to be as far from traditional as they can because they want to abdicate any responsibility the world tries to place on them and live their lives like entitled little shits

Him: Why are you feminists so angry?
Me: That’s not a question. Women are paid less for the same jobs. Most women will not even be given jobs because those would be given to less qualified men. Some women can’t have any jobs at all because they’re forced to take care of households alone, while being mocked as “mere housewives”. Some more would wish they were the “mere housewives”, not the abused housewives. Some more would not wish for anything, because they’ve died by the hands of men. So here’s the question: why aren’t you?

What is your favorite thing about feminism?

Send us an ask and we will publish your responses! Make sure it starts with “My favorite thing about feminism is”

MY favorite thing about feminism is all the double…

Reminder to read the “What We’re About” page linked at the top of our blog

Reminder that “This blog represents the most positive, uplifting, respectful, and equality-driven version of feminism — the type described by the dictionary definition of the term”

which doesn’t actually make changes in the real world. Reminder that pretending feminism’s hands are clean just because you can pretend the disgusting things done in feminism’s name, the sexist laws created in its name, the misandric social stigmas pushed by it’s leaders, aren’t associated with you all while you continue to benefit from them. Every single woman who wears the feminist badge benefits from the behavior you hypocrites LOVE to denounce and deny. 

OP’s “what we’re about” is literally nothing more than a mash up of NAFALT, the “No True Scotsman” fallacy, the “Appeal to Authority” fallacy, and a repeated dismissal of the horrible, sexist, bigoted TRUTH of what feminism has become in the modern age. 

"please do not hold these blemishes against us"

"Blemishes", as if these "radicals" aren’t actually the ones with the money, the books, the political pull, and the backing of organizations like NOW and FEMEN. As if those ‘blemishes’ are easy to toss aside for OP’s fairytale version of feminism, piggybacking on the hard work of historical women who fought for rights when women actually had none. 

You’re “what we’re about” is cute feminismforever, but guess what? It doesn’t mean a thing when the ACTIONS of feminism are brought to light. Your intentions don’t matter when the ACTIONS are the opposite of what you claim feminism is really about. 

And it’s disgusting that you are blatantly asking people to simply ignore things like this: 

In favor of the definition you want to associate feminism with, instead of one based on it’s actions. 

You show me ONE good thing modern feminism has done without tossing men, and even women who disagree with them, under the bus. 

ONE.

inb4, taking credit for shit historical feminists did.

I don't have a personal opinion on the morality of circumcision however I do know that if a male infant does get one then he won't know what it feels to have it. However if a man gets one then he'll surely see some difference. (c)

I’ve talked to my friends who are circumcised and they see no issues sexual or otherwise with their penises. I’m a female so don’t feel like I should have a major opinion on men’s reproductive health, but I should get that same respect from men.

Maybe they won’t know what it feels like to have it.

But they will know what the pain of having it cut off feels like.

If a grown man has the procedure done, he can get anesthetic. Infants can not.

Infants who have the procedure done have to be strapped down to a cold plastic body mold in order for the doctors to even attempt to perform the procedure.

There’s no excuse for anyone to put a child through that kind of pain.

I do not necessarily agree with circumcision but I would like to add that babies do feel the pain, but they don’t remember it later in life, or even a day later for that matter. Babies usually get circumcised within the first few days of life unless at a religious ceremony and they can’t even remember more than 24 hours ago at that age. So no, a grown man does not know the pain of a circumcision, they can only imagine.

You do realize that traumatic events can be imprinted in the brain, even as an infant, right?

Circumcision linked to pain, trauma, and psychosexual sequelae

Circumcision linked to psychological trauma

Circumcision may lead to abnormal brain development and subsequent deviations in behavior

Neonatal circumcision linked to pain and trauma

I’m circumcised. I like my cock the way it is and I have no self-hatred over being circumcised.
However, I do not condone infant circumcision because the pros are MASSIVELY outweighed by the cons and there are many myths about circumcision. Circumcision is not this thing where it just.. woop! off it goes! Baby is fine! Just a little crying!
They literally pull the skin up and slooowwwly cut it off, the baby is tied down and screaming the entire time. Some babies just shut down and don’t react at all because that is what the body does when it’s subjected to such extreme amounts of trauma and stress.

Circumcision should not be allowed to be done on babies. Consenting adults only.

My son’s circumcision was done in ten minutes, most of that time was spent strapping him down to the mold. How do I know? I was there. It’s a relatively simple procedure and is done to reduce the risk of penile cancer (which kind of runs in my family). Yes, he screamed, like the rest, because newborn infants stay curled up, it makes them feel safe. The second their hands are pulled out and strapped down, they cry -not because they’re hurt, but because they’re scared. The very second the infant is unstrapped and cradled, they’re fine. How do I know that? I asked parents who decided on circumcision, and actually talked about everything to help me decide. (most weren’t allowed in the room its self, but they were able to see the procedure happen.) Then I spoke to the few friends that I had that were uncircumcised. It’s funny because they were the ones that had self image issues, and even admitted it was because of their foreskin. One even told me to go through with the circumcision. I don’t know a single male that regrets their circumcision, actually. (This is all personal views though.)

The reason it’s done at infancy is because of the insurance coverage. To have the procedure done later is extremely pricey, due to it being considered a cosmetic procedure after puberty. Not everyone has money to blow on something like that.

I’m not going to go around and say that if you don’t circumcise your son, you’re a terrible human being, but I will say that you should look into legitimate medical issues that can be caused by the foreskin. Like infections. I sure as fuck didn’t know that boys could get yeast infections,. Even after a circumcision, you still have foreskin that has to be pulled back and cleaned. Guess who didn’t know that? The person without the penis.

I hope you realise that a baby’s foreskin is basically soldered to the shaft of it’s wang or whatever. You cannot pull back a baby’s foreskin. It would literally rip it and make it bleed everywhere, so no, it doesn’t have to be cleaned like that you dolt.

And oh hey,  let me just toddle the fuck down to the NHS website.
Oh, what’s this?

image
[x]

-Plastic Man 

The foreskin is a loose sheath of skin that slides back and forth on the shaft of the penis  It is attached to the skin of the penis and not to the “shaft of the wang or whatever”

And doctors recommend strongly for parents of uncircumcised children to gently pull back the foreskin to clean under it.  It rolls forward over the head of the penis when the penis is not erect.  

Imagine a stack of dixie plastic cups in that clear plastic tube they come in.  The foreskin is comparable to the plastic tube.  You can stretch it up and down.  When the stack of cups is shorter than the plastic tube, the plastic tube can be stretched forward to cover the end of the cups.  This is what is trimmed off.  Circumcision keeps debris and fungus and molds from becoming lodged between the foreskin and the penis itself.

image

This is basic human anatomy.  And the reasoning behind circumcision is to prevent health issues from infections from cleanliness issues because little boys will not often clean under their own foreskin as well as they should.  

Unless you’re going for months without showering or bathing, that will not happen. It doesn’t take a lot to keep your dick clean when you’re uncircumcised.

And the actual original reason behind circumcision was to prevent masturbation. That was how it was promoted, by Dr. Kellogg for fuck’s sake.

You know what else Dr Kellogg promoted? Female genital mutilation. Funny how that didn’t catch on, huh?

Circumcision has only recently been said to have any “health benefits” because people are desperately scrambling for a justification as to why we’ve been cutting up infant penises for decades or even centuries.

The exaggeration of the benefits of circumcision in regards to HIV/AIDS transmission

Circumcision/HIV claims are based on insufficient evidence

There is no case for the widespread implementation of circumcision as a preventative measure to stop transmission of AIDS/HIV

Circumcision policy is influenced by psychosocial factors rather than alleged health benefits

Circumcision has negligible benefit

There is no justification for circumcision. None.

i saw my little brother get sniped he cried for a few seconds then was fine and is still fine. when I have a son he will have a circumcison also because its just much more sanitary and easy to take care of, idc if somone dose it or not why should my opinion matter about your sons penis, why should anyones matter. its a personal choice and both ways are fine because its YOUR SON and you can do what ever you think is right the end

Why should your opinion matter on your own sons penis? Are you going to be using your son’s penis? No? Then why make changes to it? 

An uncircumcised dick is not difficult to take care of. Seeing as i have one, I would know.

I love it when black sjws/radfems happen upon my blog and get a hardon for me because I reclaimed the term “mulatto” and I oppose SJWs.  But they never have any argument whatsoever, they never have anything of substance to say, they just scream “oh lawdy lawdy lawdy” like a 1940s caricature of a Southern house slave.

Just curious, has the stem cell research reason for circumcision been debunked?

I’ve never heard that one before. I’ve heard of foreskins being used for cosmetic products, but as far as stem cells the only things I know of being used for that are aborted fetuses (I think, could be remembering that wrong).

Men with circumcised penises are less likely to contract HIV and other STDs and significantly reduce the risk of cervical cancer in female sex partners along with numerous other benefits and only a few risks and pretty minor ones at that (x).

Men with circumcized penises experience easier hygiene and decreased risk of penile cancer (x

Circumcision may lead to need for increased care and medical attention in the first 3 years of life

Penile cancer is a rare cancer in developed nations with annual incidence varying from 0.3 to 1 per 100,000 per year accounting for around 0.4–0.6% of all malignancies.[1] The annual incidence is approximately 1 in 100,000 men in the United States,[2] 1 in 250,000 in Australia,[3] and 0.82 per 100,000 in Denmark.[4] In the United Kingdom, fewer than 500 men are diagnosed with penile cancer every year.”

Sexual function of circumcised penises is relatively the same, if not better than that of uncircumcised penises (x the source is a pdf file located on this website called “A Guide For Parents” click the language of your choosing)

Circumcision decreases sexual pleasure

Circumcision decreases efficiency of nerve response in the glans of the penis

I have to wonder why people wouldn’t “give two shits” about the fact that our society is mass-mutilating infant boys for no other reason than they think it looks better or because they’re religion says so.

Seems kind of strange.

Was talking about #WomenAgainstFeminism today on Twitter, a trend that I see largely as a reaction to (1) extremist feminist politics found readily online and (2) ignorance/stereotypes about feminism.  I tried to handle my frustration with a bit humor but quickly realized this is actually a really emotionally-fraught topic for people.  Maybe not the time for sarcasm.

In other words, you got your shit completely fucking wrecked by check-your-privilege-feminists and people like them, because you’re nothing but a hack, and promptly deleted your post so nobody would see.


Most the time, feminism in action doesn’t explicitly call itself feminism. I’m talking about things like campaigning for sex ed, same sex marriage, equal pay, maternity leave, reproductive health a
ccess, transgender health care, representation, implementing sexual assault/harassment policies, getting women into stem, etc.

Same sex marriage is an LGBT issue completely separate from Feminism. As is transgender health care.

Equal pay has already been achieved, and anyone who does any real research already knows this.

I think this confused void about what feminists *actually do and believe in* allows the space to be sensationalized by a loud, extreme minority and predatory media sources who see a “hot story”.

This is what Feminists actually do and believe in.

Mainstream onlookers who don’t know their history or what feminism is (and don’t take a second to learn…) naturally take the bait and then end up railing against something that isn’t even an accurate representation of feminism in the first place. Then feminists are pissed, and anti-feminists are pissed (though misogynists are usually quite happy) and we’ve whipped ourselves up a nice divisive shitstorm of “whose side are you on”?

Actually, it’s mainly just Feminists who are pissed. Anti-feminists just point out the hypocrisy of a movement that purports to be about “women’s right to choose”, belittling any woman who *chooses* to, well, not do what Feminism wants.


I understand it’s unpopular amongst some feminists to concede that extremism exists; “there’s nothing wrong with radical action” and “they’re a part of the movement too”! I think those are valid points (and I certainly don’t think the solution is to silence/disown anyone), but I also think we have to admit that it can really alienate people from the cause, and perhaps #WomenAgainstFeminism is proof.  What do you think?

Those aren’t valid points at all. Extremism and radicals do nothing to help your cause, and allowing them to stay within the movement only leads to further harm. The solution *is* to disown them, because they are not practicing the kind of Feminism you claim to be for.

But I know your claim to be for equality is bull shit. That’s why you’re trying to justify keeping the radicals in the movement. You know they get shit done. You know that what they do benefits you, and you don’t care if it ends up harming men in the end or not, so long as you get to reap the benefits.

Because that’s all you are lacigreen. You’re just another run-of-the-mill feminist, with a tumblr blog, reaping the benefits of other people’s work.

I love how, rather than take these women’s criticisms into consideration, feminists feel like they have to mock and belittle any woman who doesn’t adhere to their ideology. It’s really nice to see just how condescending feminists actually are to their fellow women. I know you assume we’re all ignorant fools who just don’t understand what feminism is, but actually that’s a problem, because we do.

First of all, this is how your current feminist movement looks right now.

Sure, these are probably what you’d call “misandrists” just giving a bad name to feminism. You’re right, I’m willing to look past all that and actually look at what feminism is really about.

So let’s first look at some quotes from some prominent intellectual feminists throughout history

"I feel that ‘man-hating’ is an honorable and viable political act, that the oppressed have a right to class-hatred against the class that is oppressing them." — Robin Morgan, Ms. Magazine Editor.

"I claim that rape exists any time sexual intercourse occurs when it has not been initiated by the woman, out of her own genuine affection and desire." — Robin Morgan

"To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he’s a machine, a walking dildo." — Valerie Solanas, Authoress of the SCUM Manifesto

"The male is a domestic animal which, if treated with firmness…can be trained to do most things." — Jilly Cooper, SCUM

"I want to see a man beaten to a bloody pulp with a high-heel shoved in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig." — Andrea Dworkin

"Q: People think you are very hostile to men. A: I am." — Andrea Dworkin

"Men who are unjustly accused of rape can sometimes gain from the experience." - Catherine Comins

"All men are rapists and that’s all they are" — Marilyn French, Authoress

"The annihilation of a woman’s personality, individuality, will, character, is prerequisite to male sexuality." — Andrea Dworkin

"Men love death. In everything they make, they hollow out a central place for death, let its rancid smell contaminate every dimension of whatever still survives. Men especially love murder. In art they celebrate it, and in life they commit it. They embrace murder as if life without it would be devoid of passion, meaning, and action, as if murder were solace, stilling their sobs as they mourn the emptiness and alienation of their lives."
— Andrea Dworkin 

"Men are rapists, batterers, plunderers, killers; these same men are religious prophets, poets, heroes, figures of romance, adventure, accomplishment, figures ennobled by tragedy and defeat. Men have claimed the earth, called it ‘Her’. Men ruin Her. Men have airplanes, guns, bombs, poisonous gases, weapons so perverse and deadly that they defy any authentically human imagination."
— Andrea Dworkin, Pornography: Men Possessing Women 

"On the Left, on the Right, in the Middle; Authors, statesmen, thieves; so-called humanists and self-declared fascists; the adventurous and the contemplative, in every realm of male expression and action, violence is experienced and articulated as love and freedom."
— Andrea Dworkin, Pornography: Men Possessing Women. 

"The institution of sexual intercourse is anti-feminist — Ti-Grace Atkinson

”Feminism is the theory, lesbianism is the practice.” — Ti-Grace Atkinson

"Rape is nothing more or less than a conscious process of intimidation by which all men keep all women in a state of fear" — Susan Brownmiller; Authoress of Against Our Will p.6

"When a woman reaches orgasm with a man she is only collaborating with the patriarchal system, eroticizing her own oppression." — Sheila Jeffrys

"Politically, I call it rape whenever a woman has sex and feels violated." — Catherine MacKinnon 

"All sex, even consensual sex between a married couple, is an act of violence perpetrated against a woman." — Catherine MacKinnon

"You grow up with your father holding you down and covering your mouth so another man can make a horrible searing pain between your legs."
— Catherine MacKinnon (Prominent legal feminist scholar; University of Michigan, & Yale.) 

Interesting stuff. But hey, let’s look at what feminism is doing today in our modern times.

First let’s start with the wage gap. Feminists have been reciting this issue for quite some time now. Women still making 77¢ for every $1 men do for the same job??? Now that is a real problem.

Wait, except it’s not?

In 1963, President Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act, which stated the following:

I AM delighted today to approve the Equal Pay Act of 1963, which prohibits arbitrary discrimination against women in the payment of wages. This act represents many years of effort by labor, management, and several private organizations unassociated with labor or management, to call attention to the unconscionable practice of paying female employees less wages than male employees for the same job. This measure adds to our laws another structure basic to democracy. It will add protection at the working place to the women, the same rights at the working place in a sense that they have enjoyed at the polling place.

This Act granted working women the same rights as that of the working man, thereby enjoying the right to equal pay.

Next year, Congress passed Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in which Section 703(a) defines the following employer practices as unlawful:

(1) to fail or refuse to hire or to discharge any individual, or otherwise to discriminate against any individual with respect to his compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, because of such individual’s race, color, religion, sex, or national origin; or

(2) to limit, segregate, or classify his employees or applicants for employment in any way which would deprive or tend to deprive any individual of employment opportunities or otherwise adversely affect his status as an employee, because of such individual’s race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.

Essentially banning discrimination of wages based on sex.

So wait, why are all these companies so eager to commit an unlawful act by paying women less? How are they getting away with it?

Well… maybe they aren’t getting away with it - because they’re not committing the unlawful act.

Here is a comprehensive look at the wage gap issue, prepared for the government specifically, 95 pages.

The 15 Jobs Where Women Earn More Than Men

http://www.forbes.com/sites/jennagoudreau/2011/03/14/jobs-where-women-earn-more-than-men/

women aged between 22 and 29 earn over £10 per hour on average, compared to men their same age who earn just under this amount.

http://www.womenintechnology.co.uk/news/young-women-earn-more-than-men—news-800761492

Young women now earn more than men in UK

http://www.womensviewsonnews.org/2011/10/young-women-now-earn-more-than-men-in-uk/

The only chairwoman in the FTSE 100 index of biggest British companies, when asked about government efforts to force companies to make at least 25% of board member to be female said: “there’s no real evidence to suggest women being on a board makes the companies any better – what we’re doing here is forcing an experiment.”

This was further supported in the book “Why Men Earn More” by Warren Farrell, Ph.D., examined 25 career/life choices men and women make (hours, commute times, etc.) that lead to men earning more and women having more balanced lives, and that showed how men in surveys prioritize money while women prioritize flexibility, shorter hours, shorter commutes, less physical risk and other factors conducive to their choice to be primary parents, an option men still largely don’t have. That is why never-married childless women outearn their male counterparts, and female corporate directors now outearn their male counterparts.

http://www.reuters.com/article/domesticNews/idUSN0752118220071107?feedTy…

Farrell also lists dozens of careers, including fields of science, where women outearn men. Women simply have more options than men to be primary parents, and many of them exercise that option rather than work long, stressful hours. That is why 57% of female graduates of Stanford and Harvard left the workforce within 15 years of entry into the workforce.

http://edition.cnn.com/2005/BUSINESS/03/15/optout.revolution/

This is an option few men have (try being a single male and telling women on the first date that you want to stay home).

Blaming men for women’s choices is unfair. In fact research shows most men have no problem with their wives outearning them.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/23413243

Research also shows most working dads would quit or take a pay cut to spend more time with kids if their spouses could support the family.

http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/Careers/06/13/dads.work/index.html

Research also shows that parents share workloads more when mothers allow men to be primary parents.

Hmm, it appears as though the wage gap is not quite the issue that feminists have made it out to be.

Okay, that’s fine. But what about rape culture? Rape is a serious crime, make no mistake. But does our culture promote it? That’s a different question.

Here’s what RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network) has to say about it.

RAINN has officially dismantled feminist rape culture hysteria.

But what about the statistic that says 1 in 4 women will be raped or sexually assaulted in her lifetime?

IF the one-in-four statistic is correct—it is sometimes modified to “one-in-five to one-in-four”—campus rape represents a crime wave of unprecedented proportionsNo crime, much less one as serious as rape, has a victimization rate remotely approaching 20 or 25 percent, even over many years. The 2006 violent crime rate in Detroit, one of the most violent cities in America, was 2,400 murders, rapes, robberies, and aggravated assaults per 100,000 inhabitants—a rate of 2.4 percent. The one-in-four statistic would mean that every year, millions of young women graduate who have suffered the most terrifying assault, short of murder, that a woman can experience. Such a crime wave would require nothing less than a state of emergency—Take Back the Night rallies and 24-hour hotlines would hardly be adequate to counter this tsunami of sexual violence. Admissions policies letting in tens of thousands of vicious criminals would require a complete revision, perhaps banning boys entirely.

— Heather Mac Donald, "The Campus Rape Myth".

This alleged “statistic” was culled from a survey of 3,000 college women in 1982, conducted by Ms. Magazine.  These women were asked only three questions:

  1. Have you had sexual intercourse when you didn’t want to because a man gave you alcohol or drugs?
  2. Have you had sexual intercourse when you didn’t want to because a man threatened or used some degree of physical force to make you?
  3. Have you had sexual acts when you didn’t want to because a man threatened to use some degree of physical force to make you?

The trouble is, many of the women the survey counted as “victims” did not actually feel that they had been raped, especially not the entire third of the alleged “victims” that continued to have a consensual sexual relationship with their supposed attacker.  Others that had consensual one-night-stands that they later regretted were also counted as “victims”. 

When you have to lie about the prevalence of a crime, you’re not doing women any favors.

Feminism is supposed to be empowering, not to send us cowering.

Rape is not the “epidemic” that people are trying to claim it is.  It has actually decreased dramatically in the past few decades - up to 80% since 1979despite an increase in the willingness of victims to report them.  This is even further supported by data directly from the U.S. Bureau of Justice.

The only thing that HAS been increasing are FALSE reports of rape, which do a lot more harm to the lives of others than you may want to believe.

Third wave feminism is operating under far too many logical fallacies.  The Big Lie Technique is readily apparent in the use of the very “statistic” above which has time and again been proven to be false.  Overgeneralization continually tries to paint all men as monsters, when science has shown us that there are many psychological and biological factors that come into play to create someone with the potential to commit violence

If you have to spread lies to support your cause, how much of a cause could you possibly have to begin with?  And what are you saying about femininity itself when you want so badly for us to live in constant fear?

How is this supposed to be encouraging women to be strong if all you let us aspire to is to be victims?

How is this encouraging women to be independent if you try to make us believe that we can’t take care of ourselves?

How are you helping women at all if you have to lie to us?

Okay, but let’s not forget the rampant misogyny that became apparent in our culture after the Elliot Rodger incident. 

Just saw this on my Facebook feed and I’m really quite upset. What is this collective mentality accomplishing? What are you trying to prove? That men are all bad? Honestly, I want someone to tell me what spreading this idea is accomplishing.

The crimes that have been committed by sick individuals are horrible, no one is arguing that. But is this type of stereotyping really a good way to reflect on society? Is it good to use isolated incidences to further your agenda? If so, then these incidences would also make it clear that there is a huge problem of female perpetrated violence in society as well.

.Wow, almost like violence is not so much a gendered issue and is more of a human issue,. Maybe instead of using tragedies to push an agenda and demonize an entire gender, we should focus on the real problem of violence as a whole.
But to recap, let’s look at what real feminism has done in the real world.

Men want protection against false rape allegations. They feel that a man’s life should not be ruined simply on the allegation of a woman who may be a vindictive liar. Currently, a woman can accuse a man of rape for no reason, and the man’s name is splashed in the paper and his life is ruined. So, they fought for laws granting men anonymity until charged with the crime of rape—not convicted, just charged.

Feminists fought against this, causing it to fail. Also see here, the London Feminist Network campaigning to defeat the proposal.

Men want an end to the justice system favoring women simply because they are women, and giving men harsher sentences simply because they are men.

Feminists fought against this, arguing that no woman should be sent to jail, even women who had murdered multiple people.

Men want equal treatment when victims of domestic violence, and to not be arrested for the crime of “being male” under primary aggressor policies.

Feminists fought against this by trying to suppress evidence showing that half of domestic violence is done by women, by threatening the researchers with bomb threats, death threats, etc. Modern, younger feminists are doing it as well.

The feminist definition of domestic violence has skewed arrest and prosecution philosophies, resulting primarily in having only male batterers criminally pursued.

Men want female rapists to be arrested, charged, and convicted with rape. In Western countries, women are rarely punished when raping men, due to the biased legal system. In some countries, women cannot be punished when raping men, since rape is defined as a male-perpetrated crime.

Feminists fought against this in India, arguing that “there is a physicality [in] rape” and that it would make things “more complicated for judges.”

Feminists fought against this in Israel, claiming that changing the law would result in men filing false rape claims.

Men don’t want to be thrown in jail because they lost their jobs and temporarily cannot pay child support.

Feminists fought against this, trying to lower the amount to $5000 before a man is guilty of a felony for not paying child support. If a man loses a decent-paying job, he will now be a felon, go to jail, lose his right to vote, AND be unable to find future jobs—if he cannot regain an equal-paying job within a few months.

Men want equal economic support and help from the government. When the recession hit, male-dominated fields like construction lost millions of jobs, while female-fields like education and healthcare gained jobs. So the government proposed an economic stimulus for those fields.

Feminists successfully fought against this, arguing that it was discrimination to support men, and caused the government to give money to women who didn’t deserve it. Hundreds of professional feminists complained against the “sexism” of helping men (who had lost jobs) and not women (who had gained jobs).

A representative of the Michigan National Organization for Women testified in opposition to the Revocation of Paternity Act, which stopped the old law which stated that if a woman was married and cheated on her husband, the resulting child is considered to be legally the husband’s and the biological father had no legal rights to fight for custody or parenting time with his biological child.

In 2008, a law was passed in England and Wales that allowed long-term domestic violence victims who killed their abuser to be charged with the lesser charge of manslaughter, but this only applies to women

In California and Montana, a woman can name any man she likes as the father, he gets a letter in the mail, if he does not prove he isn’t the father within 30 days he is now the father and must payHe cannot contest it. And DNA tests to prove paternity are not considered proof by the courts.

Women who falsely accuse a man of rape, who would be sent to prison for 10+ years if convicted, only gets fined or a slap on the wrist.

There is also the gender bias in the Probation Departments:

A higher score on the Probation Assessment Tool (PAT) means a recommendation that could lead to eventual dismissal of charges. A lower score means probation or lockup, not to mention the juvenile delinquent tag. [Judge] Hunt claims PAT routinely rewards girls with 14 extra points for gender alone, while boys get 0. 

Then there are studies that show women who fail to pay child support are incarcerated only 1/8th as often as men with similar violations.

The feminist definition of domestic violence has skewed arrest and prosecution philosophies, resulting in having mostly male batterers criminally pursued, and female batterers left alone.

Men who are falsely accused of rape can have their names published and their lives ruined even if they are not convicted or charged - their accuser is protected and is likely to face no punishment, or a light one.

And you seriously wonder why women don’t want to be a part of the feminist movement?

You know we’re not idiots, Laci. We’ve done our research. We know what feminism is about. I’m sorry you can’t accept women thinking individually for themselves and not agreeing with everything you say.

I guess this lady was right,

i-was-a-teenage-anarchist:    kiran4equality:    Most brilliant anti-feminist quote I have read to date.    And it’s from Christina Sommers, a feminist who has said again and again how she hates what feminism has become.
