I didn’t know I wanted this until now.
clothes are optional.
So down for this.
how cute would this be to do with your crush or some shit
just be like oops i fell on you with my half naked body covered in paint
THIS IS FUCKING BRILLANT
anyone want to play with me? ;)
I totally would. My bucket list as well.
no, instead have them all different shades of red or just put small enough spots to where you can still see the other color. play this with your friends, then after your done, don’t wash it off. just walk around, go shopping, or whatever. if any one asks, you have just fought in a great war and vanquished many enemies.
For an added touch, put on a band aid and say “opps, missed one.” and walk away
why not just use fake blood
Or real blood
well it started out as a cute idea…
oh no so sad teh boyz r sad boyz git sad 2 but 1 in 4 women are sexually assaulted so cry me a fucking river you dumbass misogynistic assholes
so, just because this addresses that men can be insecure about themselves, it means that they’re misogynists?
so just because i like the color blue, that means i hate red with a burning passion?
fuck, i just cant.
since you are having trouble understanding, i will explain to you. this post is like a plantation owner complaining about how hot it is in the field while he whips his slaves.
this post is ABOUT being upset that only women’s insecurities are acknowledged. well, guess what? women are insecure because they’re not allowed to dress nicely or else they’re sluts who deserve and were “asking” to be raped and they’re not allowed to dress homely because then they’re ugly and ignored and denied jobs.
men who are insecure don’t face ANY of that. men who are insecure and attempt to take ANY of the attention away from women who are insecure because 1 in 4 of them are sexually abused or from women who are insecure because they are shamed for having professional desires (dyke) or maternal desires (make me a sandwich, bitch) or from women who are insecure because society expects them to fit the most constrictive form of beauty possible and when they do they are assumed to be stupid, worthless, and useful for nothing other than looking at. men who try and trivialize the insecurities of women and assume that the insecurities of men are anywhere near as founded or important are misogynists.
oh really? i thought this post was about how insecurity effects men and women, oh wait, it is! listen, i understand that you, being feminist, wont allow men to vent about how they can be insecure about themselves, because apparantly if men discuss their problems together, their “oppressing women”, but i want you to guess why men are insecure.
take a guess.
i’ll give you a minute.
got it yet?
Women. i can speak from experience that women are the main thing that made me feel insecure about my own self when i was younger(before you tell me i had no reason to be insecure, or blame it on patriarchy, i had a reason to be insecure, i was only made fun of by women in middle school, be it other girls or grown women, for being the only kid with a white mother in a black school, now mind you, these where only FEMALES trying to make me feel like shit for being mixed race), and seeing that insecurity can only be acceptable if it happens the other way around is fucking crazy.
now the subject of how women dress: i personally dont care how women dress, honestly, i think everyone should wear whatever they want, and more so if its practical. and from what ive seen, women seem to shame other women or what they wear. yeah, if there is some guy wanting you to wear something you dont want, then dont wear it and call him an asshole, but dont go assuming every man is like that. and if women are insecure, then its alright to vent about it, same with men, there are equal amounts of insecurity on both sides.
“men who try and trivialize the insecurities of women and assume that the insecurities of men are anywhere near as founded or important are misogynists.”
we try to trivialize your insecurities?
im sorry, i just cant.
WHO GIVES A FUCK IF YOU WERE INSECURE IN SCHOOL
women make men insecure. men make women raped.
your “insecurity” is nothing compared to ours. when you compare them, you trivialize the insecurities of women which are actually based on real life things.
do you think reverse racism is a real thing, too? because your being a man complaining about being objectified and made fun of for your appearance is the exact same thing as a white person saying that “cracker” is just as racist as the n word. but there’s a huge difference because the n word has actually caused immeasurable harm to people of color around the world and white people in general deserve to be called all sorts of names for perpetuating racism just as men in general deserve to be called all sorts of names for perpetuating patriarchy.
“your “insecurity” is nothing compared to ours.”
what. just what. are you fucking serious? we get hurt by the same thing, and my pain is invalid because of my penis? jesus christ you dumb cunt.
“do you think reverse racism is a real thing, too?”
YES, a group of black people harassing a white person is just as bad as a group of white people harassing a black person, infact anyone harassing anyone is bad.
“women make men insecure. men make women raped.”
men rape, and kill and ruin lives with sexual assault. women rape, kill, ruin lives with false rape claims, use alimony to their advantage, force men to suicide, and much more.
oh, and this whole Patriarchy thing, lets assume it’s real, how can you change it by being a misandrist? because if it was real, you (a misandrist) would be fuckin dead.
yeah, i’m fucking serious. no, you don’t get hurt with the same thing. is that a fucking joke? 1 in 4 (25%) women are raped. 1 in 3 (33.3%) Native American women are raped. lgbt women are fifteen times more likely to be raped than that. 3% of men are raped.
32,000 women are impregnated as a result of rape in the u.s. every year. guess how many cismen are? zero.
you want to talk about alimony? in 31 states, rapists can sue for custody and/or visitation rights to the child resulting from the rape.
ARE YOU HONESTLY FUCKING SERIOUS WITH THE WOMEN RUIN LIVES BY FALSELY ACCUSING MEN OF RAPE
do you think they make it up off the top of their fucking heads? you really should check out this article: http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor/2013/01/08/the_enliven_project_s_false_rape_accusations_infographic_great_intentions.html
also, do you remember the steubenville rapists? CAUSE THEY WERE SENTENCED TO A YEAR IN JAIL EACH. rapists ruin lives. not women claiming to be raped. it’s even more ridiculous that you think that women falsely claiming to be raped is a common thing because rape victims are forced to pay up to $1,200 for THEIR OWN RAPE KITS. that’s a $1,200 lie. http://www.alternet.org/story/141721/rape_victims_charged_up_to_$1,200_for_rape_kits
also, it’s incredibly ridiculous to claim that you’re not a misogynist and then call a person a cunt, an extremely offensive and derogatory term based on the weakness of women. like…..hello.
no, patriarchy wouldn’t necessarily make me dead in the u.s. (only any middle eastern country), just raped. which i have been. twice. i am 1 in 4, and you are a misogynist.
WHY DO YOU KEEP MAKING THIS ABOUT RAPE NO ONE EVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT RAPE ‘INSECURITY’ MEANS LOW SELF-CONFIDENCE
I don’t understand how you keep comparing Patriarchy to slavery and racism and then still think of yourself as a good feminist, or even a good person.
I don’t know how many fucking times I’ve had to make this PSA for some white feminist: Check your privilege, because I assure you, the racism this society is built on is more real, more threatening, and worst of all, more silent than any sexism we face.
Rape has nothing to do with this. The point is both sexes are insecure and that’s all this post is trying to say. Why you need to come in here wailing about how we’re trivialising rape/your problems is beyond me, and, true to your blog name, pretty darn hypocritical.
But fine. You wanna talk rape? Let’s talk rape.
Here’s a link to the Department of Justice’s statistics on rape, which you will stop reading right after it repeats your statistics, so also here is a guide to how to make the most of the information found within it.
Men make women raped? 40% of rapists are women, according to the DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE. Hm. Looks like someone can’t do research outside of funded, feminist-based organisations.
Easy-to-read guide (why the report says 1/71 men are raped when obviously it says so right in the table that an equal amount of men will be made to penetrate as women are penetrated) :
Why the lifetime statistics are bullshit: [http://www.genderratic.com/p/836/manufacturing-female-victimhood-and-marginalizing-vulnerable-men/]
which you won’t read because it sounds so absurd. That’s okay. It sounded too absurd for me to read, too, and I’m an MRA. Until you get over the title and you read the body. Then, it makes sense.
[also mentions why your RAINN stats are void]
More about why 1/4 is bullshit:
Read it, and be blown away at how bad some organisations are at checking where they got their fucking statistics from to make sure there are no gaping logical fallacies.
Wow, here’s a website saying htat 1 in 6 men are raped.
The only valid point that you could have made is that it seems 90% of those with an eating disorder are females. But, of course, you’re not interested in actually making sure we do the best we can regarding body -positivity messages.No, the fact that you made this about rape instead shows that you only care about demonising men and tearing down any kind of vent of their emotion to fuel your delusional and very problematic comparisons of sexism to slavery and racism.
This argument tl;dr:
Person A “x can be insecure as much as y contrary to popular belief that x are emotionless brutish automatons”
Person B “you’re wrong because rape. talking about your groups problems makes you a misogynist and a rape apologist”
Person A “..this has nothing to do with rape? What?”
Person B “why haven’t you shut up and let me derail your argument yet?”
It’s seriously juvenile that people on tumblr either harbour or feign sadistic enjoyment of the problems men supposedly have to deal with. Do they really think the whole “teh male fee fees xD” thing is cute? It doesn’t surprise me that the OP is 18 either with that attitude.
This argument is the best evidence for how some hardcore gender warriors on tumblr and elsewhere will use strawmen arguments to shock and shut up their opposition rather than actually address the issue at hand. It’s always a performance of dancing around the topic until the opponent is stuck having to respond to a completely unrelated topic they know they can’t win.
The gender discussion is virtually monopolized by these people who aren’t afraid to interrupt and derail any open discussion about gender issues, instead reframing any male gender issue as an attack on their own political affiliation or the female gender. Make note of that, any gender discussion outside of their own movement is seen as a threat to be stamped out. And those same people wonder why and how the growing and equally as irritating men’s rights movement has seemingly appeared out of no where.
Some men find no solution for their gender specific problems in existing gender support and advocacy groups because their problems are always always put off as unimportant, mockworthy (as seen above) or simply some sinister plot to undermine “legitimate” issues. If they protest and try to make space for their problems in the discussion, they are told to fuck off as “the rest of the world is a mens support group”. In reaction, those insecure men take their ball and make their own gender equality group to talk out and solve male problems. So now you have really loud and irritating MRAs and Feminists flinging shit at each other attempting to tear the other person down through questionable cherry picked statistics wrestling rather than working to understand the other side and, you know, do some good.
Saying “other peoples problems are way worse so you should get over it” isn’t helping and shows how lazy and anti-intellectual you are. If the rise of the mens rights movement upsets you, you only have yourself to blame because you are at fault for your failure to be inclusive and tolerant of different perspectives.
