I was hoping to never touch any of the issues that Feminism deals with again…
But I just saw a Tumblr post (by a feminist) berating a Facebook user for being upset about a Black-on-White crime. The feminist’s argument was that Black-on-White crimes are far far more represented than White-on-Black crimes by the media. And this is true! I wholeheartedly agree! The general message was: anything that seems to victimize people that are generally portrayed as the perpetrators is largely ignored to uphold stereotypes. There is a large amount of truth in that statement.
But out of all of the times I’ve engaged in debates with feminists, their premise to Woman-on-Man rape is that it’s extremely uncommon and is negligible in comparison to Man-on-Woman rape. Some, but very very very few, even go as far as saying that the man deserved it for being an oppressor (inherently) through societal norms. That, to me, is hypocrisy. It upholds the stereotype that men can never be raped, doesn’t it? A crime is a crime. Rape is rape. It can, and does, happen both ways. Is it as frequent as Man-on-Woman rape? Hell no. Is it frequent on its own? Hell yes. Be consistent, and please vehemently oppose all rape and all murder, not just when it fits the Social Justice or Feminist case.
I’m Stepping Back from Arguing with Feminists
One opinion automatically deserves “you’re a cissexist douchefuck and a shitty person.” No wonder people mainly ignore these views. I’ve been gone from Tumblr too long to have remembered what a trainwreck it is. They don’t understand biology and won’t until they want to.
I’m not going to medically treat you and diagnose you as if you’re a cat when you’re a human being. Science does change, yes, and if it ever changes toward the feminist view I will consider myself wrong.
Good day to you people who can’t offer up intellectual debate to people with differing views. To those of you who were respectful, I’m sorry. But some of your community can’t handle any sort of disagreement.
Earlier today I made a post about how one’s gender is bound to their sex and that biological standards are supreme.
Well with saying that if you have a vagina you are therefor a woman, I also said that you need to have a menstrual cycle to be a woman. And that was horrible of me to say; I forgot the health issues of many that prevent them from having menstrual cycles and also that, hey, menopause exists. So I do really apologize for my idiocy on the topic.
Some women have conditions from birth that screw up their menstrual cycle to the point that it basically doesn’t function… They’re still biologically female.
Very fair point. I should have been a lot more considerate of health issues.
If you have a vagina and a menstrual cycle, you are a woman; likewise, if you have a penis and DON’T have a menstrual cycle, you are a man.
It’s biology, folks. I understand that people want to identify as someone else, but I, and most of the world, will identify you by the differences of your organs and the innerworkings of them.
I literally just saw a comment that said, “Every time I see any feminist [post] ‘love your vagina/uterus/period/etc’ type stuff, I get really fucking uncomfortable, because it’s so damn erasing to women who don’t have those things…”
You can’t be erasing to something that isn’t there. Women have those organs and men don’t. The only way you could be a woman when you were originally not is to have a sex-change operation. And that’s fine by me. But in my view, biology takes precedence over feelings.
HAHA oh my god! Never underestimate the power of women ;)\
LOL OMG WOMYN R SOOOO POWERFUL SHE SURE SHOWED HIM! CUZ LYKE U KNO RAPE IS ONLY BAD IF DONE 2 A GIRL. If the genders were switched here, it would be a completely different reaction on tumblr. And feminists say that men don’t have to deal with sexism.
All of you fucking disgust me.
^ agreed. rape isn’t ok, regardless of who its done too.
rape isnt okay in any situation, okay, but he wasn’t exactly an angel either. here’s an independent woman trying to make an honest living for herself, and as if women aren’t treated bad already, here comes disgusting lazy piece of crap trying to take what isn’t rightfully his. i’d like to see another man try and fuck with her again. just because she’s a woman doesnt make her an easy and vulnerable target!
>rape isnt okay in any situation, okay, but he wasn’t exactly an angel either
Go ahead, try to make the same argument regarding a female rape victim and see how many feminists wish death on you for being a “victim blamer” and “rape apologist”. Fuck your hypocrisy. Also:
>an independent woman trying to make an honest living for herself
Has nothing to do with the fact that she’s a rapist.
>here comes disgusting lazy piece of crap trying to take what isn’t rightfully his. i’d like to see another man try and fuck with her again.
Implying that men are “disgusting lazy pieces of crap” out to “fuck with” women? Nice thinly veiled misandry.
> rape isnt okay in any situation, okay, but she wasn’t exactly an angel either. here’s an independent man trying to make an honest living for himself, and as if men aren’t treated bad already, here comes disgusting lazy piece of crap trying to take what isn’t rightfully hers. i’d like to see another woman try and fuck with him again. just because he’s a man doesnt make him an easy and vulnerable target!
So rape is apparently ok now if it’s A) in retaliation for robbery B) The person doing it is a woman?
Wow Tumblr. Just wow.
People are actually applauding this? What?! This is not okay, at all. This is RAPE. How is this in any way justifiable? She subdued him, that’s all she needed to do. This is completely disgusting. If the roles were reversed, many of the people in support of her would be up in arms. We can’t exalt the abuse of certain people as inherently more tragic than others. That is in no way equality. If we want equality, we have to look at crimes with unclouded eyes, and not put victims in a hierarchy of importance, deeming some more worthy of our sympathy than others. Fighting for equality is a brilliant principle; trivializing crimes against others because of their gender or saying “they had it coming” or “they deserved it,” however, is not. It’s repugnant and hypocritical.
ITT: The Part of Feminism You Don’t See!
While I’d rather not post this as one of my first posts in about a week, I find that I need to. This is why I’ve disassociated myself with the term “feminism”. It’s a movement that holds proponents of equalism (who should abandon the term “feminist”) and proponents of supremacism. When people are applauding this and don’t realize that if it were reversed everyone would be up in arms, you have to question the validity of these people.
Also… it’s rape. It’s bad. Don’t support it. This man was wrong because he infringed on her negative liberties, but all she had to do was subdue him. She far surpassed him in his wrongdoing to her.
what are you saying
what are half of these words
Google has no idea what “singletism” is. And neither do I.
This is the funniest thing I’ve ever seen on Tumblr.
Singeltism? Really? And the adult/child dichotomy? That’s oppression to you? I’m shocked by this.
Also, please not the “generalizations” category up there. I’m sorry, but that’s hypocrisy at it’s finest. I’ve argued with few feminists who have not made generalizations about all libertarians/fiscal conservatives, let alone what they generalize about other groups of people and schools of thought.
And I’m not really a huge patriot… but why is that up there? Like, honestly. Loving your country is oppressive? I can understand jingoism (they could have said neo-conservatives too for those who don’t know what jingoism is) but pure patriotic feelings? Not making sense.
Also, thanks for putting all of libertarianism up there. As well as neoliberalism, which is just a new way to say classical liberal. The only political ideology to purely protect all negative liberties is oppressive. I can understand if you’re aiming for positive liberties, but you can’t have both. I’d bet you’d like to keep negative ones around. This is logical…
The fact that there are privilege denying, rape apologists editing the politics tag is just another reason why #feminism needs to be an edited tag.
^ Thiiiiiis. Also the massive amount of triggering photos that trolls put in that tag when they think they’re being clever. “Oh lol let’s put images of women being beaten and killed in the feminism tag, that’ll show ‘em that we live in an equal society and feminism isn’t relevant anymore, heh bitches”.
Oh, and also the fact that there are some genuinely awesome posts that get tagged there and that deserve recognition for being cool.
Wrong… they post those photos to express their view of the world. They’re protesting those types of actions by putting up those kinds of photos. Not everyone is out to get feminists, you know. Some people just put up the pictures to show the state of how poorly some people are treated.
Really upsetting. A government definition of rape and prevention from services. Then a tax hike.
I don’t support taxpayer funded abortion as a Libertarian. At all. People should have the choice to fund what they want; it’s part of being pro-choice. But this is ridiculous.
Not allowing people to do what they wish with their bodies is bad. Then telling them “You can only spend your tax deductions here!” is, on top of that, horrid. I understand it stops taxpayer funding of abortion, but if someone gets a tax deduction, that’s their money. Not anyone else’s. True, the money came from somewhere as part of the cycle of money, but even without the welfare state there would be a cycle of money. As long as there is no subsidy to perform these operations I’m fine.
But again, that’s their money. Abortion should be no one’s business but the woman, the doctor, and anyone else immediately involved (such as the father). Get the government out of it, please.
This bill also crowds out business for insurance companies. If a private firm says “We cover abortions!” Boom. Tax hike. That’s also quite ridiculous. The firm should be able to provide any services and aids it wishes so long as it does not intrude upon personal liberties of people. Government is, yet again, going too far.
