last day of the sale bros. just sayin

I wanted to send a "yo, fuck you" to Sheriff Bill Brown and Alan Shifman for shifting the blame for the UC Santa Barbara shooting onto Rodger being mentally ill. The dude wasn't diagnosed with anything besides Asperger's, which doesn't lead people on fucking killing sprees.

It’s fucking disgusting how we scapegoat mental illness whenever someone (surprise surprise, another white guy), goes on a killing spree. Weird how law enforcement and the media aren’t clamoring for the male community to get their shit together to denounce this sexist fuckhead.

Britain just straight-up voted for an openly racist party in the European elections :-(

i love sir patrick stewart more with each passing day.

See, guys. This is how you do it. Notice the words “Not all men are like that” are never spoken.

He knows men are like that

his father was like that to his mother

he has experienced the pain firsthand, of what it’s like when men are like that

and he never wants men to be like that again and he fights tooth and nail against the men who are still like that

And moreover, he acknowledges his privilege [as an older white male who is famous/well known] and uses it to speak up. He knows what he is, and he never has to say he’s not like those men he fights against—he never says it, his actions speak loud enough for everyone else to see it. 

Sir Patrick Stewart, everyone.

I don’t ever talk about this because it’s SUPER HARD but my father considered himself an MRA. He blamed women for everything wrong in his life.

He learned to hate and blame women the same way racism teaches people to hate and blame minorities.

My mother saved us from his abuse but my father…

Everyone Needs to Read #Yesallwomen

What’s a bummer is I feel like every few weeks or months there’s has to be another hashtag about this. Remember #rapecultureiswhen or #everydaysexism or #safetytipsforladies or #shoutingback?

It’s really fucked up that we’re not even at the point of trying to solve the problem because we are still stuck trying to get people to acknowledge there is one.

To You Internet Misogynists

yoisthisracist:

First of all, fuck you. It’s always been like, you know, an irritating thing that you’d attempted to co-opt the language of feminism and other civil rights struggles to cloak your sexist ideas in bullshit like “Men’s Rights” and calling this sexist garbage “activism.” And for a long time, I think a lot of people like me were down with ignoring this shit because it was juvenile and stupid, but also because it seemed like this tactic was clearly the same as racists whining about why there isn’t White History Month, or homophobes trying to have a Straight Pride Parade, something that anyone with half a brain could see is transparently a way to prop up the bigotry of people who already control the balance of power in this world.

But this Elliot Rodger mess brings up a way that this type of shit can affect people. Because, when you co-opt the rhetoric of revolution and struggle, it’s more than just “trolling” or some bullshit to make, you know, actual decent people angry. It’s language that can make a disturbed person think that defending bigotry is a legitimate struggle, that, in Rodger’s case, that owning and subjugating women is a cause worth killing and dying for. Because that’s what those words mean, you fucking garbage assholes, those words are for people who struggle from real oppression, to inspire people to sacrifice and never give up. The fact that straight white men have taken these words to rally around calcifying the bigotry that’s slipping from their fingers is truly disgusting, and now it’s more clear that it has fucking consequences.

Fuck you, you pieces of shit, fuck you.

We don’t know if Elliot Rodger was mentally ill. We don’t know if he was a “madman.” We do know that he was desperately lonely and unhappy, and that the Men’s Rights Movement convinced him that his loneliness and unhappiness was intentionally caused by women.
Because this is what the Men’s Rights Movement does: it spreads misogyny, it spreads violence, and most of all it spreads a sense of entitlement towards women’s bodies.
Pretending that this is the a rare act perpetrated by a “crazy” person is disingenuous and also does nothing to address the threat of violence that women face every day. We can’t just write this one off – we need to talk about all of the fucked up parts of our culture, especially the movements that teach men that they have the right to dominate and intimidate and violate women, that lead to this, and we need to change things. Because if we don’t, I guarantee that this will happen again. And again. And again.

From a profile on Okcupid: "I would prefer if you were white. I know that sounds mean but I was hurt."

Some people have really small minds, like how do they even do every day stuff like open doors and go up and down stairs? I don’t understand how their brains work. Like, can they tell the difference between a dog and a cat? Do they think movies are real life? Do they wonder why they can never get away from their shadow no matter how fast they run?

This is like the 3rd or 4th time I’ve made a post about this, but I’m obsessed with the idea of Chiwetel Ejiofor as Black Panther. I don’t think anyone at all could be as good.

He’d just be perfect, I think people forget that T’Challa is not just some big tough guy in a costume with an African accent, he’s a cool classy graceful composed wise dignified intellectual brilliant charming witty noble regal as fuck… king. He should make Tony Stark feel like the 2nd coolest person in the room. Oh you’re a genius billionaire playboy philanthropist? That’s cute. I’m the king and protector of the most technologically advanced nation in the world, nice to meet you. He should make Steve Rogers feel like wow I really admire and respect this guy and one on one he can put me on my ass, bros for life.

And when it comes to unknown or up and comers, I think the stakes are kinda too high for a black superhero film, so Chiwetel, a critically acclaimed actor who is not yet super famous but has a face people know and associate with Oscar praise would go a long way.

Marvel, get on it.

Firefighter Who Saved Infant Finally Meets Girl, Now 18, at Graduation - The Good News Network

Here’s something nice in the news to balance out all the awfulness.

iwilleatyourenglish:

everyone has said and done problematic things in their lifetime. that’s a result of the society we live in, not necessarily a reflection of their character.

what is a reflection of their character is how they react to being informed of the negativity within their behavior and statements, and whether or not they choose to change their behavior.

adriofthedead:

first a girl gets stabbed and killed by a dude at school because she refused to go to prom with him

now seven women are dead and more are injured because some idiot tool felt like sex or even attention from women was something that was somehow “owed” to him

how many more times does this have to happen before we start getting it through our heads that male entitlement fucking kills people

Elliot Rodger, Gunman in California Mass Shooting, was influenced by the "Men's Rights Movement"

Trigger Warning: Violence Against Women, Rape Culture

The Gunman’s Name is Elliot Rodger. Last night, he posted a chilling manifesto to youtube. Announcing that he is a 22 year old Virgin who has never been kissed he says:

"It’s not fair. You girls have never been attracted to me. I don’t know why you girls have never been attracted to me, but I will punish you all for it. It’s an injustice, a crime, because I don’t know what you don’t see in me. I’m the perfect guy, and yet you throw yourselves at all these obnoxious men, instead of me, the supreme gentleman."

"I will punish all of you for it," he says again, and then he laughs.

"On the day of retribution I will enter the hottest sorority house of UCSB, and I will slaughter every single spoiled stuck up blonde slut I see inside there. All those girls that I’ve desired so much, they would have all rejected me and looked down upon me as an inferior man if I ever made a sexual advance towards them. While they throw themselves at these obnoxious brutes. I’ll take great pleasure in slaughtering all of you. You will finally see that I am in truth the superior one. The true Alpha Male."

This really exemplifies how toxic the “I get friendzoned because I’m a nice guy” attitude is. Those girls could be alive if instead of being entitled and focusing outward and blaming women for the “injustice” of his virginity, he looked inward, thought about what he was doing wrong and how he could be better or what he could do differently. Also, these guys are always so busy hating women for allegedly being too shallow to give them the time of day, but at the same time they only want (and feel they deserve) the most narrow stereotype of physical beauty.

This is so ugly and depressing.
