Feminism as a movement is not about prioritizing the feelings of cis men as above or equal to our own. You are welcome to be an ally for us. But calling yourself feminist is invading a movement that was not made for you and in which your voice is not necessary and often not wanted. It is male privilege to think you are entitled to join and gain a title in any club, group or movement you want. I’ve noticed that cis men who insist on being called “feminists” rather than “feminist allies” put their own feelings and need for legitimacy/validation above the actual goals and priorities of feminism. Feminist can be used as an adjective/descriptive term for men, like “I met a guy who seemed very feminist.” Or “He has some strong feminist beliefs”. A man could say “I believe in feminism”. But to adopt the title of feminist is appropriation of a movement that has been built on and by the suffering of women and other people who experience gender-based oppression. Basically, if a man says he’s a feminist and, when asked by us to call himself a “feminist ally” instead, he refuses, he proves that he doesn’t actually care about women or our needs and feelings, and he has no right to be involved in feminism in any way.
Lets do some logic.
- Top of the page - “Feminism as a movement is not about prioritizing the feelings of cis men as above or equal to our own”
- Bottom of the page - ”He doesn’t actually care about women or our needs and feelings.”
Why the fuck should he care about your feelings when you don’t care about his? Baring in mind this is how you treat your ALLIES.
- "Calling yourself feminist is invading a movement that was not made for you and in which your voice is not necessary and often not wanted."
Funny because Feminists are VERY quick to remind people that by dictionary definition they’re an ideological movement supporting gender equality. Moreover to achieve gender equality you NEED multiple points of view from all genders, not just women and not just men. You ignorant moron.
- "It is male privilege to think that you are entitled to join and gain a title in any club, group or movement you want"
No my dear that’s called freedom of speech and freedom of expression. Apparently you haven’t heard of it judging from your post that condemns 3.5 billion people to silence based on gender.
But it IS female privilege to think you can actively silence opposing or even non-opposing views and invalidate said views just because they’re coming from a human with a penis rather than a vagina. It is also apparently female privilege to actively deny rights secured by law to all citizens in western countries.
- "But to adopt the title of feminist is appropriation of a movement that has been built on and by the suffering of women and other people who experience gender-based oppression."
Okay so there’s lots wrong with this. A man is not stealing your movement by agreeing with it and thinking he should join. Also what the fuck do you mean by “Women and other people” Who the fuck is “Other people?” Oh gee could it be men? The fact that you daren’t even say “Men face oppression” is beyond closed minded and beyond ridiculous. You’re clearly so blinded by your own supposed oppression that you can’t recognise other peoples suffering and actively refuse to admit it even exists.
- and finally this [again] “Doesn’t actually care about women or our needs and feelings.”
Saying “I want to join your group seeking rights for women” would imply the exact opposite of what you just said. Also your “needs?” Is it a need to systematically oppress men? You’re clearly sated in that regard. Is it a need to try and justify your entire movement is a pro-equality movement whilst simultaneously denying that there is more than one side to the issue? Is it a need to make yourself look like a complete fool publicly? [Again, clearly sated.] And your “Feelings” don’t come into the equation. Just because you feel like somebody doesn’t deserve something that doesn’t mean you can systematically deny them a basic human right. You are the epitome and very definition of female privilege. Like holy fuck you think your FEELINGS can dictate whether a man has the right to discuss gender issues? AND YOU CALL MEN PRIVILEGED? WTF DO YOU CALL YOURSELF THE QUEEN?
Can anyone explain what’s funny here?? Bc honestly I just see a typical Seth macfarlan molestation and violence against women “joke”
It’s called dark humor, you uncultured swine.
I love how tards are reading too far into this. If it was a guy getting his junk rubbed while he was sleeping, no one would be crying about it.
i’ve been seeing people talk almost all day about why men (yes, even you) shouldn’t identify as feminists but nobody i follow has gone into especially great detail so i’m going to expand this a little for your general benefit:
- feminism is not a religion, it is a social movement
- it has no holy…
Good, I’m actually fine with not being allowed to join in your circle-jerking over imagined slights against your unloved snatches
Can you exclude women who don’t wanna be a part of it too but also not yell at them for being stupid or traitors? Or do I have to get a legal sex change first?
The OP Just listed every single reason why feminism is fucked up, great to know some people are willing to admit it now.
What the hell is with all this “doing hurtful things to your waifu” stuff?” Some started popping up on my face book and at first I thought it was like some wierd thing anti bronys were doing but now it’s just turned into another meme. I wasn’t going to say shit about it but then I saw a few skullgirls ones then I was like “oh fuck this shit” I know I’m going to get shit for saying this but I kinda like these things mostly for references and drawing practices. As much as it hurts seeing squiggly like that I just like how is drawn as well. I just want a valentine version of both hurting and not hurting. It makes for good feel fuel. Don’t really hurt your waifus tho.
bronys are bad because they sexualize a show meant for kids. anyone whose ever written, drawn, or enjoyed pornography for homestuck (featuring children/preteens) harry potter (targeted to kids) or literally any anime that can possibly be named is obvs exempt from this because fuck you is why
ive been asked to speak on the santa barbara incident, and honestly i dont have anything all that intelligent to say other than SHUT UP to every idiot out there who is willfully turning corpses into mouthpieces to push misinformation for their shitty (feminist, more often than not) agenda
anyway heres a huge post by endgaem that highlights all the actual facts. give it a glance and educate yourselves, dipshits (and big thanks to endgaem for compiling all the facts together in an unbiased, reasonable way)
i have yet to see a feminist/sjw make a decent rebuttal against this argument.
I can’t stop reblogging this blog.
