sirteachingpet asked: That's a silly point. As "the gender under attack" you should be more sensitive to making generalizations. I don't feel strongly about this, just thought it was a bit ironic. Regardless, I hope all is well with you.
I see no need to be “sensitive” to men. I’m sorry but no. I really couldn’t care less about their feelings. Maybe once you have a taste of what it’s like being treated like a girl, men will change. Until then I’ll play the game their way.
Yes but not all men play it that way. I agree with the world needs feminism, however it is tiring seeing so many blogs make sexist comments towards men. Jesus I’m gonna get hate for this I can tell. Like, I agree with feminism and I support it. But that sounds patronising as fuck. I understand the whole ‘two can play at that game’ and I agree to an extent. But to lump all men together is wrong, it’s stereotyping and although we all do it, it’s wrong to do.
I’m not arguing by the way, and I’m aware I’ve explained myself poorly. Jesus I sound like I should be wearing a fedora here don’t i?
I hate the term feminism. It really just sounds like women above everything and that’s not actually what it is.
Now I support the idea of equal rights for women but fucking hell. Be assed with the ones who take it too far and hate lads purely for being lads.
Actually that’s EXACTLY what it’s about. Men are above us in society, why the fuck would be try and make you even higher? That’s the issue with men butting into Feminism. You STILL want everything to be about you even when you claim to want equality, you just cannot stand that something isn’t about you. Equality is the goal, not the mode in which you reach change. “But what about us” What about you? It’s not meant to benefit you. It’s to get women on equal ground.
Please pardon my tone, because I am a little on edge tonight, but this issue just drives me wild with men. I do not understand why they don’t get why Feminism isn’t about them.
God damn it.
No it’s not. It’s about the equal rights for women, or at the very least, that’s how it’s defined in several dictionaries. And I for one happen to agree with it because I also happen to believe in equal rights for all, regardless of things such as race, gender, religion or age, for example.
Maybe my understanding of feminism is different to yours, but that’s how I understand it.
My problem is with those who then hate men for the simple fact they’re men. If you want to put men down, and women on top, you’re just as bad as the men who oppress the women.
Jfc you are such a typical man trying to talk about Feminism and you don’t understand it at all. I’m not going even waste my time on you. Someone else can educate you, it’s not my job and I’m not in the mood.
MEN AREN’T OPPRESSED. DISLIKING YOU OR EVEN HATING YOU DOES NOT MAKE YOU OPPRESSED SO HOW ARE WE JUST AS BAD. OPPRESSION INVOLVES POWER, WHICH WE DON’T HAVE. THAT IS THE DAMN POINT.
So shut your damn mouth before you try and speak for a movement that isn’t even about you.
Feminism didn’t make me angry at men, men’s reaction to Feminism did that. No truer words ever spoken.
I’m gonna be quite honest here.
If you are a Male and want to support feminism, SHUT THE FUCK UP about how feminism should be done. I used to make the same mistakes, say the same stupid things, why? because I didn’t understand.
That’s why it is feminism, it focuses its efforts for the benefit of women, REGARDLESS of us being good men or bad men. We as Men need to understand that we have no place in feminism, we can offer support and not offer excuses as to how we are not all the same.
We are the same! we are all Men. Want to help gender equality? here’s a few simple ways we can help as Men fight feminism/gender inequality
- Treat women with RESPECT
- Don’t give excuses as to why we’re not all the same
- Self educate on why feminism is important and what you can do
That is just a start, but don’t try and be a feminist, we simply cannot be cause we are male. Just do the things that women need to achieve equality, do it because you care, do it because you really feel it is important. No one needs to know.
I think Gandhi said it best and it applies to all genders:
"Be the change you want to see in the world"
'Men have no place in feminism,' 'Feminism isn't about men.' Huh? You realize feminism doesn't exist without men. Feminism is about equality for women, and equality to whom? MEN. Damn right feminism is about men as well.
You really want to see a change and to gain equality? You’ll never achieve that without the support of men or by slandering men. Equality in this sense is not a cut and dry term. What one person thinks is equality, another doesn’t. So… sure, all the women can get together and fight for their equality all they want and can even achieve equality in their eyes. But you know what, if you don’t have the support of men, that doesn’t mean you will be equal in their eyes and you will still be right back where you started because we all know what women really want is for us men to see them as our equals. Rather or not they will admit it, it’s true. But grouping all men, slandering them and putting them down is exactly why women haven’t and cannot achieve equality at this time. This will never gain the respect or support of men and you will never achieve your goal of men seeing you as their equals.
How about you all start by welcoming men with open arms who say they support you? Whether or not it is exactly how ‘YOU’ want them to show their support because it is not about ‘YOU’ it is about everyone. Them saying that they support it is a step in the right direction for true feminists. Fighting them about it and saying they don’t understand will only push those men away and you can only lose support by doing this, which is a step in the wrong direction if you wish to see any progress.
Also, to the guy saying ‘We are the same! We are all men.’ you are stupid. I am not the same as you. We have a similar quality, in that we are both men, but we are far from the same. In fact, no two people out of the billions in the world will ever be the same! The closest two people will probably ever be to being the same is to be identical twins or conjoined twins and still they are not the same! So please, don’t be an idiot and spread this bullshit that all men are the same because they are all men. It is far from the truth. You could never love, care about or even like anyone if you stereotyped all men and all women together. Everyone knows of at least one male and one female that they dislike, are bad, stupid, crazy, or any other negative way to describe a person. So if you then linked all men to that one bad man and all women to that one bad woman, you would never like anyone. However, that is not the case! There are good men, there are bad men, there are good women, there are bad women! Just because you had a bad encounter with a bad man or multiple bad men does not, in any way, mean you should put down all men. There are good men out there, and plenty of them. YOU are the bad person for slandering a man who has never wronged you and that you don’t know if they have wronged anyone else. You are simply worried that they may be like the bad guy that you dealt with in your past. But, that is not their fault and you shouldn’t take that out on them. Also, I’m sorry to break it to you, but there are women who are just as bad. You just may not have been as unfortunate to run into one of them as well.
Overall, DON’T GROUP MEN together, they are NOT THE SAME! Stereotyping is the worst thing you can do for your feminist movement. APPRECIATE ANY AND ALL SUPPORT FROM MEN, rather or not it is the exact type of support you want. Some form of support is much better than no support! You will never achieve equality if you do not include men! Men have half the say in whether or not you are equal, just as women have half the say in determining that men are ‘superior, equal or lesser’ than women. Women who say ‘we all know men have always been superior and now we want equality’ are part of the problem. By saying and admitting that men were superior at some point, you are only supporting that they are superior and you are not equal because, as I said, women have half the say in determining where men stand. If you want men as your equals, say you are their equals! Earn their respect and you just might gain that equality you want so badly. Most importantly, don’t fight the good ones because you are afraid of the bad ones!
Rape Culture isn’t real?
i cant even comprehend that there are people who say yes this
okay but look.
FEMALES ARE SAYING YES TOO.
Granted, it’s less than males, but they are still saying yes.
THAT MEANS THAT NOT ONLY DO WE NEED TO DO A BETTER JOB OF TEACHING MALES TO NOT RAPE, BUT WE NEED TO TEACH FEMALES TO KNOW WHAT RAPE IS.
IT IS RAPE IF YOU WERE GOING TO AND THEN CHANGE YOUR MIND.
IT IS RAPE IF YOU “LEAD HIM ON” BUT DON’T ACTUALLY WANT SEX.
IT IS RAPE IF YOU HAVE BEEN TOGETHER FOR A LONG TIME.
So don’t only accuse males of perpetuating rape culture, because females need re-educating too.
Pardon me while I go get my ball cutters. Those who know me are aware that I am NOT kidding.
Lets not forget that men can get raped too and women can be rapists.
Let’s not forget, this poll was given to HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS who think it’s funny to put the wrong answer on a survey all the time. Those numbers are a lie.
The friend that opens the umbrella behind you so you can be a dilophosaurus is the best friend you’ll ever have.
