Tumblr is a place where the majority of people preach the message that you should love a girl however she is, whatever scars she has (emotional or physical), what size she is, whatever her past is. That she is entitled to respect and love, that you should always be there for her, and don’t you dare leave her or string her on with mixed signals, because that’s hurtful. And it is totally immoral to place ANY SORT of norm or standard for how all woman should be, because it’s a “competition none of them agreed to” etc.At the same time, the very same time, the same people will preach that a guy has to literally be perfect in every way. He needs a perfect accent, perfect body, perfect job, perfect wealth, and high enough in the social/popularity ladder. And if he doesn’t meet any of those rigid guidelines, no one is ever under any obligation to accept or welcome them, and that you have the right to manipulate them then dispose of them without any explanation or clarification.Honestly. If you don’t think that’s extremely fucked up, then you’re a callous hypocrite. None of us ‘agreed to that competition’ either.
Before you accuse me of being a fedora MRA dudebro male tears or whatever, you have to note this. For the most part, I do consider myself a male feminist. I have been supporting pro-choicers on my campus, I have been behind events to end slut shaming, and I care deeply for my mother, my sister, and my female friends. And I cannot stand to see misogyny. but I can’t sit back on this issue anymore. I am an incredibly introverted, shy guy that suffers extremely bad self esteem, who is pretty much told every day that he’s not eligible to ever be happy, and that he will die alone, because he doesn’t have confidene. Can you imagine the shitstorm if that was said to a girl, can you?This is not ok.Low self esteem doesn’t discriminate against genders y’know, it doesn’t look into sociohistorical factors, it just slaps it right on you.Tumblr teaches that girls should be loved however they are (whether they are unnecessarily overweight and on welfare), but guys have to be a 8/10 (with the right jaw, perfect smile, six pack, big penis, in a suit, and with his own house and car in a terrible economy) to even be vaguely noticed. If you think that is equality, then you are a fucking dumbass… seriously.

and outside tumblr any borderline retard who lives with his parents at 35 and has a 0.5 inch dick, filth under his nails, rotten teeth, beer gut and a balding scalp, can demand a woman with big breasts (and not saggy ones!), tight vag, flat stomach, perfect teeth, hair, nails and shit. it’s only the other side of the same coin here. nobody said it’s about equality.

i think you’ve proven ops point
it’s called sexism and you’re a sexist

reading comprehension… 2nd grade.. where were you

I don’t get how everyone on this website glorifies murder, but is enraged when someone makes a joke about rape. I’ve even seen a post that gave tips on the best ways to murder someone, and of course everyone just laughed like it was nothing. If someone made a joke like that, but with rape as the subject, tumblr wouldn’t have it. I’m not saying that rape (or murder) is something to joke about, I just think that it’s stupid and hypocritical to romanticize murder, while treating rape jokes as such a taboo.

Because rape, unlike murder, is a form of violence with a sexual connotation, therefore, it implies it is women on the receiving end mostly. Meanwhile murder is more unisexual, something along the lines “a person of any sex can be a victim of murder, so why get angry about it”. That’s how tumblr mentality works, I suppose. Totally devoid of impartiality and understanding that it’s a GENERAL issue about weak and defenseless people against strong people who violate basic rights. And if feminists were so strongly against concepts like virginity and purity, their anger about rape would be as big as it is about any other form of violence - let’s get cynical here so that all those psychopaths who said “murder victims don’t get triggered” are happy.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s a troll or not. Too many sad cowards relish in the fact that they can say anything because they’re nameless, faceless, addressless. Questioning established views that are inertially accepted by people is one thing, being fascist or faking fascism for fun is another. Forget karma, it’d be better if people found out where this little shit hides.
P.S. Dearie, you can die tryin’, but you still aren’t topping the notes. Another submission took the award. Sorry.

reblogging my own stuff but oh well.. fun to see “open-minded” “rational” “thinkers” applying emotion-influenced double standards at the expense of relativistic thinking.
or they’re just so used to being cowards that any speech against their holy internet anonymity makes their stank guts seethe.
keep up the flawed rebuttals, scaredy cats, you only make my point stronger.

I feel like when people who say “stop romanticizing the 1920s, because of; xyz reason” should get of their high-horse, i say this mainly because the people who are longing for the 1920s are not wishing for it to be ok to oppress black people or gay people. Most of them (such as myself) long for the cars (hence the ad above), the music, the clothing, etc. I want the 1920s style and such back because of it was pretty much one of the best times in american history, our economy was wonderful, we had just defeated the Germans in WWI, and despite Prohibition, people still managed to have fun. compared to our situation now? I’d much rather live in the 1920s. But when someone who’s up on their smart ass high-horse hears you say that they instantly say to you “life was horrible back then, because people; x reason and y reason.    

myeah. the same dumb shits who kvetch about how wrong it is to romanticize anything before the 70s “because oppression”, also romanticize the 90s, and in former communist countries (whose regime fell apart with “a little help” from the west) it was hell at that time - hyperinflation, fledging mafia, tons of financial pyramids, murderings and civil wars. not to mention 80s and AIDS. you can’t romanticize ANYTHING by that logic, but some idiots still do. and what’s their excuse besides being, well, idiots?…

The fact that religion is still taken seriously in 2013 makes me both sad and angry.
I come from a country where approximately 80-90 percent of the population is atheist.  Even the dumbest people here (the equivalent of American rednecks seen in Here Comes Honey Boo Boo) know religion is bullshit, and they know the exact reasons why. We look at religion the same way we look at other made-up stories - they’re all just fairy tales conceived by humans who didn’t have science. The Bible, The Qur’an, ancient Greek, Roman, Norse or Egyptian myths, Hinduism, Paganism, everything is just an explanation of the world born from a lack of knowledge.
It saddens me we still pretend that what the Pope (just another guy with an imaginary friend and a big hat) thinks is important. It makes me angry that when someone like Richard Dawkins comes on American television, they make him debate religion with a religious person, and Americans actually think that their two opinions have the same value (hint: they don’t) and they can choose which side is right (hint: they can’t). That means one of the most powerful countries in the world is a leading force in ignorance and blind faith. They actually think the Teory of Evolution is “just a theory”, because they don’t know the difference between “a theory” and “scientific theory”. How is this possible in our time of education being available easier than ever before?
They also think science’s main purpose is to be an enemy of religion, they actually think scientists are making stuff up just to disprove it. What? Science is just observation, experimentation, and conclusion. Even going outside, looking at grass and concluding that most grass is probably green is a very basic form of science. The fact that science has disproved all religion a hundred times over is just a by-product of that. And yet we are supposed to act like religious people’s opinions matter. Why? In a better society, they would be shunned for their idiotic ancient beliefs by now, and they’d keep their mouths shut when it came to any important issues.
Imagine an alien in a scout ship lands on Earth. He goes around and thinks “wow, they’re kinda smart! they’ve got science, they’ve mastered some pretty advanced technology thanks to it, they know how their planet began and evolved, they know a lot about the Universe… maybe there’s hope for them!”. And then he discovers that still, at this time of fantastic scientific and technological discovery, billions of people actually believe in old fairy tales and superstitions made up by ancient humans in a time without knowledge. He’d be noping the heck out of here so fast it would make our heads spin.
The sad thing is, though, that whenever I talk to an American, or someone from an equally religious country, I have to go through the same points and arguments of religion all over again, because they’re apparently incapable of finding out the facts themselves. It baffles me why. Even just a hundred years ago, I’d accept it. But not today, not in our time.
Tolerating religion is ludicrous and wrong.

so much for “critical thinking”
and forget the republicans
think about someone whose life is so hard and unhappy that religion and the “heavenly reward” promised by it (or at least in christianity) is the only light in their existence. a light you’re now pissing on with your pseudo-scientific faux-skeptical dick.
