You know how it is, right, ladies? You know a guy for a while. You hang out with him. You do fun things with him—play video games, watch movies, go hiking, go to concerts. You invite him to your parties. You listen to his problems. You do all this because you think he wants to be your friend.

forever wondering what my language sounds like to people who can’t speak it
THERE’S A SONG THAT WAS MADE TO SOUND LIKE HOW ENGLISH SOUNDS TO OTHER PEOPLE BUT IT’S MADDENING TO ENGLISH SPEAKERS BECAUSE KDGSDFG IT KEEPS SOUNDING LIKE WORDS BUT NONE OF IT MAKES SENSE and I don’t have a link to it sorry
I believe that there are a small group of women who hate men just for being men. I believe that the textbook definition of the word misandry fits that description. I believe there are bad things that happen to men. I believe those issues should be addressed. I do not believe that a fringe group of women who hate men can be blamed for those issues.
Misandry was a dead word until recently. A group of men who feared the progress of feminism revived the word and used it to undercut the movement. They like having the power being a man provides and they don’t want to lose that. So they created a movement, found a bunch of legitimate issues that affect men, and tried to blame women for those issues. They called this misandry. It’s like conservatives using buzzwords like “death panels” to make people fear health care. They let people assume it meant Obama wanted to kill your grandma. They let their cute little phrase infect the minds of good people and convince them of falsehoods.
People are telling me that men cannot report rape without getting laughed at. They say this is misandry. It is the fault of women who hate men. But that just doesn’t make any sense to me. When I seek a logical explanation, it seems more likely that this is because men are supposed to be strong and women are supposed to be weak. And rape has been viewed as something that happens mostly to women. So if it does happen to a man, they must be weak. How did this idea of men=strong and women=weak start? I’m pretty sure it wasn’t because of misandry. It is an ancient patriarchy collapsing in on itself.
Feminism is about fighting inequality. It’s about erasing the strong/weak perception ingrained into our society. Misandry, as the term is often used today, is about trying to blame women for anything bad that happens to men.
If you want to fight to fix issues that affect men, go for it. But I would really consider distancing yourself from this term. It is used to evangelize folks into a movement that is very problematic. A group that can’t handle scrutiny of their comic books and video games, so they send death and rape threats. A group that calls women sluts and think they ask for rape if they show too much cleavage. Those are the people who coined this term, and you should want nothing to do with them or their language.
just as attractive as she is intelligent hahaha
Look, you don’t have to agree with me or even like me, you’re not required by law to be my friend, but trying to attack my appearance is not only petty, does nothing for your cause, but also reinforces the notion that a person’s worth is tantamount to their appearance, which is neither helpful nor healthy. I don’t like petty grudges and I’d be willing to bury the hatchet with you but if you’re going to try and bring someone down over their appearance while at the same time calling them a ‘dumb biittttttch’ then maybe it isn’t worth trying. I’m sure you’re better than this but you aren’t demonstrating it.
Wait, they were attacking you? Because damn girl, you’re fine. If I were into chicks I’d be all over that. Holy shit, just look at that fucking goldspun hair. You have fantastic taste in hats, and those furs are just gorgeous on you. The furs don’t compliment you, /you compliment the furs/. Those are lips I’d write disgustingly vile things about with love and I just made it weird ON PURPOSE.
You are amazing, Dani. You know your shit, and you’re a far more civil person than /SoMe PeOpLe/. On top of that you’re beautiful goddess and damn don’t I wish I’d been so lucky.
PokemonMinistry is just mad that no one cares about them : D
“I’M POKEMONMINISTRY AND I’M TOO DUMB TO KEEP UP WITH THE CONVERSATION SO WHEN I START LOSING I TURN IT OVER TO PETTY ATTACKS ON SOMEONE’S APPEARANCE
YEAH THAT’LL SHOW ‘EM HAHA I BET SHE’S SO BLAME”
Except everything you’ve posted is true. Dani is one gorgeous motherfucker and she’s incredibly intelligent. How about you try again when you have something worth saying, huh kid?
I’d fuck you.
And then take you out to a nice classy dinner after we showered and cleaned up. Then maybe we’d go see all the taxidermied animals at the Natural History Museum.
Oun Sambath and his pet python.
A few months after Oun Sambath was born, his family found a baby python under his mattress. They carefully took it outside, but during the night it returned to be with the baby boy. The boy’s father prayed, and decided that the snake belonged to the boy and would bring them happiness.
The boy and the snake have been together ever since. They have played together, have slept together, and even have talked together.
“What do you say to the snake?” People have asked the boy.
“That is a secret,” the boy has replied.
