So today Angelina Jolie had double mastectomy, which is the removal of one’s breasts, to prevent Breast cancer. So instead of praising Angelina on her bravery, men on Twitter decided to ridicule her, even calling her stupid for removing her breasts. For those of you on Tumblr that are attacking Feminists about being delusional about sexism against women and misogyny here’s your fucking proof that sexism and misogyny exists.
This is distressing and awful to see this..
All of them can fuck the fuck off.
I want to stab all of them in the eye sockets
feminazis don’t exist
nowhere in the world do women imprison men into labor camps where they are forced to work tirelessly until they’re corralled into a tiny room and gassed to death
thank you and goodnight
Comparing anything to Nazis or Hitler is the laziest, cheapest way to derail and end all thoughtful and rational discussions.
in case anyone hasn’t seen today’s cyanide and happiness comic strip
honestly? it makes me fucking irate that people still use the word feminist as an insult
like yes how dare you want women to be treated as human beings
you vile woman you
Fuck Yeah Feminist Thor.

You know you live in a society that hates women/girls when:
Pregnant women are accused of being too fat
Single mothers are constantly criticized, but gov’t is doing everything in it’s power to make abortions illegal.
A song lyric about slipping…
I believe that there are a small group of women who hate men just for being men. I believe that the textbook definition of the word misandry fits that description. I believe there are bad things that happen to men. I believe those issues should be addressed. I do not believe that a fringe group of women who hate men can be blamed for those issues.
Misandry was a dead word until recently. A group of men who feared the progress of feminism revived the word and used it to undercut the movement. They like having the power being a man provides and they don’t want to lose that. So they created a movement, found a bunch of legitimate issues that affect men, and tried to blame women for those issues. They called this misandry. It’s like conservatives using buzzwords like “death panels” to make people fear health care. They let people assume it meant Obama wanted to kill your grandma. They let their cute little phrase infect the minds of good people and convince them of falsehoods.
People are telling me that men cannot report rape without getting laughed at. They say this is misandry. It is the fault of women who hate men. But that just doesn’t make any sense to me. When I seek a logical explanation, it seems more likely that this is because men are supposed to be strong and women are supposed to be weak. And rape has been viewed as something that happens mostly to women. So if it does happen to a man, they must be weak. How did this idea of men=strong and women=weak start? I’m pretty sure it wasn’t because of misandry. It is an ancient patriarchy collapsing in on itself.
Feminism is about fighting inequality. It’s about erasing the strong/weak perception ingrained into our society. Misandry, as the term is often used today, is about trying to blame women for anything bad that happens to men.
If you want to fight to fix issues that affect men, go for it. But I would really consider distancing yourself from this term. It is used to evangelize folks into a movement that is very problematic. A group that can’t handle scrutiny of their comic books and video games, so they send death and rape threats. A group that calls women sluts and think they ask for rape if they show too much cleavage. Those are the people who coined this term, and you should want nothing to do with them or their language.
yeah i encourage all of you to get out to your local a+c armed with some stink bombs ;) (their stores smell disgusting anyhow) i’ve always hated this store, but now i feel entirely justified for using that word.
This just pissed me off so much…
What a total bonehead.
This reeks of thin privilege.
