Because society views men as disposable and women as valuable.
So when a woman is in danger, even if it’s less than a man, it’s still viewed as more important than the man’s danger.
I do love my icon lol
So apparently there was a rumor a while back that cr1tikal works as a substitute teacher.
Could you imagine just sitting in class, waiting for your teacher, when all of a sudden you hear
"What’s up everybody it’s Cr1tikal. Today I’m substituting Applied Chemistry, let’s do this shit,"
That would be the best shit ever.
Like having Gordon Ramsay substitute for your fucking Home-ec class.
I’m beginning to think that the men’s rights movement could benefit from paying attention to how anti-male bias affects certain marginalized groups.
Think of the stigma surrounding relationships between black men and white women, compared to our (relative) indifference towards relationships between white men and black women. In the latter case, we’re naturally inclined to see the white woman as a victim, not only because we view male sexuality as predatory and dangerous, but also because of our fear and distrust towards black people in general. The black man’s identity as a male and his identity as a black person are intertwined.
We’ve addressed some of this directly in a recent post, though it’s come up a number of times. To make a long story short, the MRM does actually do this. Unfortunately, it’s hampered by the way men belonging to other marginalized groups have been socialized to blame any issues they suffer on their “acceptable” demographic in a way that precludes any analysis of gender as a source.The MRM is not Feminism. Most MRAs do not want to co-opt other movements, nor do they want the MRM to be co-opted by other movements. While it is fine and just to advocate for gay marriage, for example, it is not a good idea for MRAs to go out and protest for gay marriage, as MRAs. I’m pretty sure that many members of the LGBT community would not appreciate MRAs reframing LGBT issues as Men’s Rights issues. Feminists have no problem doing this. They will talk about something that effects gay men and women, and trans people, then say “see! We need Feminism.” I see this as shameless self promotion.
Guess who just vandalized posters that said only 1 in 33 men are raped but 1 in 6 women are? That’s right, I did. I wrote the search terms for the Toysoldiers article on how the CDC doesn’t call it rape when you force a man to penetrate you. I did the justice!
