This is how I make everyone’s life a little better. :(
Reblog if you believe that Feminism is about creating a better world for people of all genders, including men. (My friend believes that it’s about hating men.)
If you have any examples of how feminists have stood up for men’s rights, please send them to me!
I don’t believe it’s about hating men. I think the feminist movement has done and continues to do great things for women. And a lot of the time, by doing those things for women, they ended up helping men too- giving women the right to vote, giving them a place in the workplace; those things have made life better for everybody, women and men.
But at the same time, I don’t see any evidence that the movement cares about men or equality. Individual members might, sure, but the things I’ve seen from the feminist movement in regards to helping/protecting men has always been the opposite- the movement has always been out to give women any advantage that they can. Vague, nebulous things like ‘remaking society’ makes for great propaganda, and I can’t wait for the day where male rape victims aren’t laughed at and told they enjoyed it or were somehow asking for it (or are actually considered victims, and not forced to pay their rapist child support- and oh yes, I can give you examples), or when male suicide is actually considered a problem despite being triple the rate of female suicide (and we maybe ban words to help their feelings (can start with ‘handsome’)), but when I look at the concrete things that the movement is actually doing- that list I put up earlier, listing the laws the feminist movement had squashed or reworked so that equality for men was removed- I find that the issues men might face are being ignored or even covered up by the movement, and I become extremely suspicious that any ‘new society’ created by the feminist movement would be equal. That’s why I hold this opinion, and why it really bugged me when you were telling me that feminism was trying to help me; the links I posted were an explanation.
If I told you Christianity was trying to make your life better, and showed you the kind of pictures you linked me, you’d respond the same way I have. Maybe you’d give me the benefit of the doubt and think ‘oh, he just hasn’t seen the same information I have’, and show me clear, concrete examples of how your life has been made worse by them, or at the very least how you’ve had equality stolen from you by churches (like I did for feminism); but either way I think that at the very least you would wonder why I felt that could possibly make you feel better.
I wasn’t trying to argue, or say the feminist movement is just about hating men or anything like that, just… had hoped you could have understood where I was coming from.

Trying to stay away from subjects but this happened these past few weeks and this is Very Important to me- not trying to get into an argument, but want to make sure people know it’s happening.
lmao. I read the floor in Dean’s voice, the fridge in Sam’s.
We need to move, and soon. We aren’t safe here anymore. Our resources are being pulled out from under us after we’ve been repeatedly promised that this would never happen. We need help. We need a new, safer home.
Things have gotten increasingly dire; my pay is being cut down…
There is a SITEL in Corning NY if you’re near there (it’s an outsource callcenter); this company is almost always hiring, doesn’t care much about employment gaps/past experience (or lack thereof), and I know from experience they do not discriminate in hiring. They are a horrible company to work for over any length of time and they will find ways to ‘redirect’ raises/bonuses, but it might be worth looking into/give you something temporarily until you can find something better.
Good luck either way- I hope things improve for both of you soon. :(
The trick is in figuring out if you’re the one standing on the edge and warning people… or the one walking over the cliff while friends try to stop you.
Emma speaks for those of us who stopped believing in fairy tales a long time ago but secretly wish they are all true.
WHY WAS THIS NOT IN THE FINAL CUT.
Or even the Special Editions. This is GREAT.

I have a new favorite Star Wars moment.
With Tara’s (maythefoxbewithyou/taratryptamine) permission - I have made this design available on RedBubble.com, here. You can get stickers, shirts, phone cases… all that. I didn’t want to just limit it to t-shirts, because I know the mark-up can be expensive.
Any money made from these t-shirts will be donated to a worthy cause that goes toward the protection and aid for exotic animals, as well as toward Tara and her husband. Whatever she decides. Rest in peace, Vader. Your memory will always live on.
(If you know of any better websites to sell on, please let me know! I want this to be as accessible as possible!)
