My brother literally just said their should be more “Men’s Rights” because it’s not fair what women are able to do. I really wanted to slap him.
Indeed. You need to show him his place. The moment those uppity fucks start questioning too much we’ll start to have problems.
The problems that men face in this system of oppression are legitimate concerns, but not the responsibility of feminism to fix.
but muh equality
Treating different problems with differing levels of severity equally isn’t equal.
Plus i don’t know who’s claiming that feminism’s n. 1 goal is equality esp when being equal to men is being equal to an oppressive class.
Damn straight. Why should a movement for gender equality tackle problems for gender equally?
Anyone who don’t think men as a class are oppressive is wrong. The moment every boy becomes a man he gains the rod of + 100 womyn oppression, the sacred book of rape jokes, and a card that allows him into the patriarchy where all his wishes come true.
STOP LEVELING UP CULTURE!! KEEP BOYS FROM REACHING OPPRESSIVE CLASSES!! TEACH THEM NOT TO RAAAAPPPPPPEEE!!!!
it’s time to reveal who you are inside

WHAT THE FUCK
HOLY FUCKING SHIT WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK IS GOING ON
How many of you have actually watched the video, because I’ve been looking at this for over an hour, but I’m too scared to actually watch it..
OMFG HOW TO BASIC
i luuuuv fucking my sister<3
*gary jules plays*
I cut my armpit shaving the other day.
THIS WOULDN’T HAVE HAPPENED IF THE PATRIARCHY WASN’T OPPRESSING ME AND MAKING ME FEEL BAD FOR MY BODY HAIR
I can understand why some feminists feel a sense of comfort and pride in their misandry, but seriously I think its bullshit.
Because if we keep perpetuating these ideas that all feminists hate men, we aren’t going to get anywhere. We need people of all gender identities to be on board with our movement. I’m certainly not going to exclude a man if he can get down with feminism.
thnks 4 bein 0n 0ur 7eam, u r pr0m0t3d.
+10 patriarchy points to the feminist that believes in misandry!
CAN SHE COME TO OUR MEETING GUISE
DONT Reblog my shit.
My not agreeing with misandry does not mean I’m on your team. I’m half tempted to delete that post. I knew you’d skew it to be something it wasnt.
I am a proud Feminist.
I am a proud woman of color.
Just because I can recognize that there are good men in this world doesnt mean I support you. It means I’m not prejudiced toward men because to me, feminism represents equality. And I’m all for being equal.
AND WE ARE NOT TREATED EQUAL
Dont share my shit.
SAME YOU SCUM
WE DO NOT POST THINGS ON PUBLIC FORUMS FOR THE PUBLIC

C’mon Sweden, you gotta do better.
They thought we would stop at making it illegal for men to pee standing up. They were so wrong.
HA internalized misogyny at it’s finest
good job fighting against equal rights and helping the patriarchy, scum
You guys PLEASE. Take five minutes for this, it is your future on the line. THERE IS A REASON YOU HAVEN’T HEARD ABOUT THIS. THE MEDIA WILL NOT COVER IT.
THIS IS UP TO US. SIGNAL. BOOST. THIS. EVERYWHERE.
THE TPPA IS A “TRADE AGREEMENT” BETWEEN THE USA AND OTHER NATIONS THAT GIVES NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY OVER TO CORPORATIONS.
IT LITERALLY MAKES CORPORATIONS MORE POWERFUL THAN GOVERNMENTS, AND THE FIRST THING THEY WILL SHUT DOWN IS INTERNET FREEDOM.
THIS IS NOT TUMBLR HYPERBOLE.
THAT IS LITERALLY WHAT THE TPPA IS.
Any nation that signs the agreement and does not comply with the following regulations can be SUED FOR BILLIONS by any corporation which feels that country is reducing FUTURE profits there. Don’t want fracking in your town? Voted against it? Your vote doesn’t really matter if Exxon can sue your town for 70 billion in lost revenue, does it? Welcome to your future - where not even your government has power against corporations.
THIS IS WHAT THE TPPA IS. IT WILL EXTEND TO EVERY AREA OF LIFE FROM ENERGY TO MEDICINE, AND WILL DO SO WORLDWIDE.
IF THIS PASSES HERE’S WHAT WE HAVE TO LOOK FORWARD TO:
look at the links, but this is a sample:
Internet freedom. Thanks to public rebellion, corporations hoping to lock up and monopolize the internet failed in Congress last year to pass their repressive “Stop Online Piracy Act.” However, they’ve slipped SOPA’s most pernicious provisions into TPP. Corporate-created content, for example, would be given copyright protection for a stunning 120 years!
The deal would also transform internet service providers into a private, Big Brother police force, empowered to monitor our “user activity,” arbitrarily take down our content, and cut off our access to the internet.
To top that off, consumers could be assessed mandatory fines for non-commercial, small-scale copying—like sending your mom a recipe you got off of a paid site.
Jobs. US corporations would get special foreign-investor protections to limit the cost and risk of relocating their factories to low-wage nations that sign onto this agreement. For example, an American corporation thinking about moving a factory would know it is guaranteed a sweetheart deal if it exports to a TPP nation like Vietnam. The corporation could skirt Vietnam’s laws and demand compensation at an international tribunal for any government policy or action (such as a hike in the minimum wage) that undermined its “expected” profits. These guarantees would be strong incentives for corporate chieftains to export even more of our middle-class jobs.
Food safety. Any of our government’s food safety regulations (on pesticide levels, bacterial contamination, fecal exposure, toxic additives, GMOs, non-edible fillers, etc.) that are stricter than “international standards,” as most are, could be ruled as “illegal trade barriers.” Then our government would have to revise our consumer protections to comply with the weaker global standards. Also, our government could no longer ban meat imports that don’t meet our safe-to-eat laws, as long as the exporting nation simply claims that its inspection system is “equivalent” to ours. In addition, food labeling laws we rely on (organic, country-of-origin, animal-welfare approved, GMO-free, etc.) would also be subject to challenge as trade barriers.
Fracking. Our Department of Energy would lose its authority to regulate exports of natural gas to any TPP nation. This would create an explosion of the destructive fracking process across our land, for both foreign and US corporations could export fracked gas from America to member nations without any DOE review of the environmental and economic impacts on local communities—or on our national interests. It also means that most of the gas produced by this violently polluting process will not go to us, but to foreign users, which will raise our consumer prices and cut manufacturing growth.
Drug prices. Big Pharma would be given more years of monopoly pricing on each of their patents and be empowered to block distribution of cheaper generic drugs. Besides artificially keeping everyone’s prices high, this would be a death sentence to many people suffering from cancer, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and other treatable diseases in impoverished lands. The deal would also restrict the rights of our government to negotiate with drug giants to get lower consumer prices with bulk purchases, as Medicare and Medicaid do in the US.
Banksters. Wall Street and the financial giants in other TPP countries would make out like bandits: The deal explicitly prohibits transaction taxes (such as the proposed Robin Hood Tax here) that would shut down super-rich speculators who have repeatedly triggered financial crises and economic crashes around the world; it restricts “firewall” reforms that separate consumer banking from risky investment banking (thus prohibiting Congress from reinstating the much needed Glass-Steagall firewall in our country); it could roll back reforms that governments adopted to fix the extreme bank-deregulation regimen that caused Wall Street’s 2007 crash; and it provides a backdoor escape from national rules that would limit the size of “too-big-to-fail” behemoths. These extreme provisions would be enforceable by the banks themselves—TPP empowers them to force governments either to repeal reform laws or to compensate banks with taxpayer money for “losses” they say are caused by reforms.
Public services. TPP rules would limit how governments regulate such public services as utilities, transportation, and education, including restricting policies meant to ensure broad or universal access to those essential needs. One especially insidious rule says that member countries must open their service sectors to private competitors, which would allow the corporate provider to cherry pick the profitable customers and sink the public service. Also, corporations from any TPP nation must be allowed to bid on contracts to provide public services in the US on the same terms as American corporations.
THIS IS VERY REAL, AND IT IS BEING HIDDEN FROM YOU BECAUSE THEY KNOW HOW AWFUL IT IS AND WANT TO PASS IT WITHOUT ANYONE KNOWING.
OBAMA WANTS TO FAST-TRACK IT THROUGH HOUSE AND CONGRESS IN OCTOBER WITH NO MEDIA COVERAGE WHATSOEVER.
Here is a letter from a group of one hundred and two economists (from Tufts University) to Trade Ministers involved in the talk begging them to change the policy that would allow corporations to sue nations, because they fear it would make those nations unable to control thier own economies and lead to widespread financial disaster.

I’m actually very very very worried about this but I feel I need more information.
This is more important than any Feminist or Men’s Rights issue as far as I’m concerned.
