The main problem I have with Men’s Rights Activists is that their name really doesn’t do them justice. They’re Straight Cis White Men’s Rights Activists. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for the inclusion of trans* men in their spaces.

I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign to end the social stigma around black fatherhood. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for better pay and equal career mobility for men of colour. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists actively campaign for more gay men’s rights. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists advise others in their group on how using f*ggot to emasculate men who aren’t part of their cause is alienating and marginalising other MEN.

I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support victims of male rape unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of rape. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support male victims of domestic abuse unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of domestic abuse. Men’s Rights Activists are hypocrites and frauds.

They’re bitter privileged white men who don’t want to campaign for the rights of men — they want to campaign to keep their privilege unchecked and their ability to discriminate against others. If you want to be a real Men’s Rights Activist — be a fucking (intersectional) Feminist. Peace out.

All of this. The only men they care about are themselves, and the only thing they don’t like is that they might be treated the same way as everyone else.

KILL HIM

This is a true fuck boy.

I like how “The hacking story is too big to ignore.” somehow implicitly necessitates that he participates in the invasion of privacy.

Yes, we shouldn’t be ignoring the story. But we—especially those of us who pretend to be journalists for a living—should be finding out as much as possible about the hackers and shedding as much daylight as possible on them. They’re the story.

Okay. I decided to write a short thing about this type of typical response I get (usually, but not always, from cis white dudes) in response to a horrific story about rape, in this case an Oklahoma police officer who has been accused by eight women of rape and assault.

It’s a horrible story, but of course this cop has supporters who are raising money for him on Go Fund Me, which is the same site supporters of officer Darren Wilson (the cop who murdered Mike Brown) used to raise funds.

I’m posting these tweets here as an example of what not to say when someone is trying to talk about rape, specifically police rape against communities of color (all of the women in the above OKC case are black).

These are great examples of micro-aggressions, annoying attempts at derailing a conversation.

1. NO ONE IS ASKING FOR CENSORSHIP. Bigots and rape apologists have the freedom to raise funds, and we have the freedom to call them assholes (and if that entails an organized campaign to pressure Go Fund Me into dropping this page, that is also not censorship. That’s called feedback)

2. If your immediate concern in the wake of a terrible story like this is to play devil’s advocate on behalf of a rapist, you’re an asshole

3. You cannot convince me for one second that the public’s response would be the same if these eight women were white.

4. YOU ARE NOT AN ALLY. You call yourself progressive, but really you’re a PUW (progressive until women). For example: 

Here we have the “you used to do great work until you started talking about ladies” and “outright threat for talking about ladies and yelling at someone for being a rape apologist” varieties. (Jamie is tweeting the author of the threat, @Boss1000, in the above tweet, who said he was going to cancel his pre-order of our book)

Here at Citizen Radio we get these tweets ALL THE TIME whenever we talk about rape culture or women’s issues. These are the boys who luuurve when we yell at Blackwater or Wall Street, but recoil when we suggest maybe a crowdsourcing website shouldn’t support a rapist.

Again, no one is suggesting there shouldn’t be a trial, but you don’t need to send this guy money in the meantime.

But whatevs. I guess it’s easier to cry about censorship.

Sex workers are human beings…. from cam models to strippers to porn stars. It may not be your cup o’ tea (mmm, tea), but it doesn’t give you the right to disrespect or shame them. 

Reblogging this again because people think that just because someone is a sex worker, means that they are not intelligent, can’t have normal lives, and treat them like complete shit.

Man, I’m by no means a fan of Jennifer Lawrence, but can we not spread her leaked nudes? Like, unless she sent them to you personally and gave you explicit permission to show them to whoever you want, they’re not yours to share, and frankly, if you share them, you’re a skeezy asshole at best and a sex criminal at worst

Within three days of becoming engaged, I had already been told that I shouldn’t wear my glasses, because they’re not bridal. I was told my cane wasn’t bridal. I was told my eye… was not bridal. And I realized that if I was going to be “bridal” in their eyes, I was going to have to change who I am. I am proudly disabled.

This photo is giving me LIFE

Beautiful

If you are a man who thinks it’s funny to make misogynist jokes purely to make your female friends uncomfortable/angry, then you are a misogynist.  It is not “just a joke.”  You literally are finding humor in the discomfort and dehumanization of women.  You are not helping, you are not making satire.  You are just being misogynist.

Yes, this includes you gay men.

see: every dude who said stuff to me just to “push my buttons”

If making someone upset is “fun” for you, then what the fuck does that say about you as a person?
