GET RAD.

"“My female boss is mean to me at work” is not the same thing as centuries of institutionalized, systemic discrimination. If “beautiful women can get whatever they want,” then why haven’t we elected one president yet? “Sexism against both genders is wrong” betrays a fundamental misunderstanding of what sexism is. Any individual of any gender can be prejudiced or discriminate on a face-to-face level, but only one gender faces the glass ceiling, the ongoing, legalized regulation of their bodies, the significant wage gap for doing the same type of work, the deeply-engrained and consistently reinforced stereotypes about their being less aggressive, less capable and less intelligent, and countless other obstacles."

Women’s safety > Your fucking feelings

"True gender equality is actually perceived as inequality. A group that is made up of 50% women is perceived as being mostly women. A situation that is perfectly equal between men and women is perceived as being biased in favor of women.
And if you don’t believe me, you’ve never been a married woman who kept her family name. I have had students hold that up as proof of my “sexism.”
My own brother told me that he could never marry a woman who kept her name because “everyone would know who ruled that relationship.” Perfect equality – my husband keeps his name and I keep mine – is held as a statement of superiority on my part."

Also the study where they had women and men talking in a discussion and when women spoke around 30% of the time, men perceived them as dominating the discussion. They didn’t consider it “equal” until something like 5-10% of women talking. (via dumbthingswhitepplsay)

How to Meet Shy Girls

[Y]ou want a girlfriend but you don’t want a whore. You want a girlfriend but you don’t want an argumentative she-man. You want a girlfriend who is nice, sweet, modest and chipper. You don’t want “just one of the guys”. You want a girlfriend who looks up to you and builds up your confidence and makes you smile. You want a girlfriend who doesn’t dress up like a whore every weekend to go have a “girls night out” and get drunk as a skunk and fucked by random men. You want a girlfriend who acts like a girl and makes you feel strong and powerful.

Is there a way to find such a creature?

"You want a girlfriend who you can treat like shit and completely dehumanize and get away with it."

You’re a Pussy if You Think There’s a War on Men
For some men, women—especially feminists—are terrifying. Not in the normal oh-my-God-I-can’t-ask-her-out-what-if-she-says-no way that middle schoolers and characters on Friends experience, but “afraid” in the sense that women will take their money, try to get pregnant on purpose, invent false rape claims, and use feminism to generally abuse men. In this narrative, men are either an oppressed minority (or about to become one), or have to “fight back” against feminists to preserve their rights.
If you want to see what this kind of thinking looks like, take a dip into the river of the Men’s Rights section of Reddit, where a bunch of dudes go to complain about getting raped by women and talk gibberish about how their “clans” are getting attacked by “Statism and Feminism.” Currently, some of the most popular posts on the subreddit include a complaint about how if you owe more than $2,500 in child support payments you can’t get a passport (in the Men’s Rights universe, deadbeat dads are often victims of a misandrist court system); adiscussion, inspired by a Walking Dead plot point, about how getting beaten up is worse than being threatened with rape; an account of some guy squabbling with an obscure feminist blogger (these guys are always getting into internet beef with feminist bloggers, and vice-versa); and a screenshot of some gobbledygook about patriarchy that probably sounded smart to the high-schooler who wrote it. Like a lot of Reddit, the Men’s Rights forum is a way for predominantly white, predominantly rich young men to pat themselves on the back for how smart they are. It gives them something to do, I guess, and it gives the Shit Reddit Says subreddit something to react against.
But the idea that feminism is harmful to men, and women have declared war on people with penises, isn’t confined to Reddit’s nether regions anymore. It’s now mainstream enough for Fox News’s website, which published an awful, troll-baiting op-ed about “The War on Men” written by Suzzanne Venker. Her thesis is that while women want to marry men, men don’t want to marry them because, “Women aren’t women anymore.” She goes on:
“Women are angry. They’re also defensive, though often unknowingly. That’s because they’ve been raised to think of men as the enemy. Armed with this new attitude, women pushed men off their pedestal (women had their own pedestal, but feminists convinced them otherwise) and climbed up to take what they were taught to believe was rightfully theirs.
Now the men have nowhere to go.”
What she’s describing is a pretty standard anti-feminist narrative: The evil feminists “convinced” women to want things like the same careers and pay and power that men had (they didn’t really want these things, see, but they were persuaded otherwise), thereby causing them to lose the status they were too short-sighted to have valued.

I made a video!

A video that addresses the political ramifications of the shift in production of videogames for oppositional groups known as ‘Counterpublics’. What do these groups, and their contestation of who gets to be the controllers of symbolic production mean for society today?

Daniel rules, peep game.

Reasons I just cannot take local activism in St. John’s seriously. Holy shit. Thankfully the dude who posted it is getting torn apart by everyone right now.

Can you imagine for a second if the internet was a thing when Abe Lincoln was running for president?

All the democrats would be up in arms over the fact that he want to take away slave owner’s rights.

“if you don’t want a slave, don’t have one”

“No slave, no opinion”

Are…are you really comparing abortion to slavery right now?

Kathleen Hannah used to be a stripper in Portland. she did it to “pay for college.” just like every stripper has claimed to justify their “career” LOL.
feminists, dont have a cow.. but shave your arm pits, and cooters.

WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU FOLLOWING ME??????????????????

Steakhead harcore bro complains about women doing as they please with their own bodies. It’s like dude woke up one day and decided “I am going to become a walking punk cliché” but didn’t want to put the effort into a studded jacket and liberty spikes so he chose this route instead.

I am an immasculated pussified faggot libtard who will spend my life being cuckholded by the few smelly crust punk girls I can convince to pity fuck me, and this defines me as a man.
