This is Everyday Feminism doubling down on stupidity telling us how actually it IS all men..
Okay let’s pull out the dumb from this dumb..
“Let’s start here, even though this should go without saying: We don’t think that all men are inherently abusive or dangerous. Plenty of men aren’t.
There are men that we love very much – men around whom we feel mostly safe and unthreatened; men who, in fact, support, respect, and take care of us on familial, platonic, romantic, and sexual levels. Not every man has violated us individually; for most of us, there are plenty of men that we trust.
We know what you mean by “not all men” – because on a basic level, we agree with you.”
So you agree with us?
Then what the fuck is the point of the insane crap?
“But the socialization of men is such that even a good man – a supportive man, a respectful man, a trusted man – has within him the potential for violence and harm because these behaviors are normalized through patriarchy.”
Everyone regardless of gender, race or whatever has the potential to be violent. I could go and smash up my room if I wanted and my sister could kick my balls in if she so chose.
But that potential does not make anyone a threat, it means they could do something violent but they are only a threat if they do it.
“And as such, we know that even the men that we love, never mind random men who we don’t know, have the potential to be dangerous. Surely, all people have that potential. But in a world divided into the oppressed and the oppressors, the former learn to fear the latter as a defense mechanism.”
You just killed your argument by saying all people have the potential to be dangerous.
“So when you enter a space – any space – as a man, you carry with yourself the threat of harm.”
Harm to women you mean. You don’t think men catty a threat of harm to other men do you?
Course not because men are strong and women are weak..
“Make no mistake: When you use the phrase “not all men” – or otherwise buy into the myth of it – you’re giving yourself and others a pass to continue performing the socially sanctioned violence of “masculinity” without consequence, whether or not that’s your intention.”
You may as well say any man who says not all men is a rape defender.
Then these melons give their six reasons why is all men and as they are just that stupid let’s just skip them and spin on to the last bits..
“But how many well-meaning men are truly choosing that path, instead of just insisting that it’s “not all men” and that they’re “not like that?”
Hint: You are “like that”
Are like WHAT?
A rapists, a misogynist a what??
Men here are being told that they are like men who are misogynistic entitled violent and stuff.
And when they deny it they get told they are just aiding violence against women.
It’s a bunch of man hating trash which is not doing anything to end sexism and violence against women.
“Fighting learned male entitlement means assuming the burden of vigilance – watching not just yourself, but other men.”
Fighting learned Muslim extremism means assuming the burden of vigilance, watching yourself but other Muslims..
Why have I got to police other men’s behaviour?
Men are the only group that are being told by feminists and SJWs that they need to take responsibility for the bad behaviour of others within their group.
No other group are.
Muslims are not, nor are black people and especially women are not.
And nor should they he because to do so would be racist, bigoted and sexist.
But why hold all men responsible for bad things some men do to women?
“Well-meaning men, if we’re being honest, we love many of you. And those of you whom we don’t know, we want to believe and appreciate. We want to feel safe around you.”
When you see WE you mean women.
But no you mean feminists.
Because you always think that you speak for all women and the fact is many women will be reading this and thinking it to be utter man hating flam.
And really as a man I don’t care if feminists feel safe around me or love and appreciate me.
I don’t want them to feel unsafe but I just do not give two figs if they do.
I care if women feel safe around me, especially my own mum, sister and female friends.
But not feminists as they hate me and they can basically fuck off.
And you can believe me when I say this..
YOU SUCK AND YOU ARE LIARS!
Oh Anita Sarkeesian said that was harassment.
Oh lock me up.
“We don’t want to fear or distrust men. We don’t want to have to perform risk assessments on every man that we meet. Trust us – it’s a miserable life! We’d gladly abandon this work if it wasn’t absolutely necessary to our survival.”
Fact is most women don’t distrust men, fear them and perform risks on them.
But you want them to fear men and distrust men because the work that you say you’d “gladly abandon” is trying to make women fear men as you keep telling them that men are a dangerous threat to them.
And that means that you actually do more to harm to women than you do to men as you make them look weak and fateful and many women hate that and hate you telling them that even the men they love could do something horrible to them.
And as for risk assessments on every man..
Tell me do women perform risk assessments on men who are in wheelchairs and severely disabled?
Do female nurses risk assess very frail old men that are bed bound thinking that he may rape her?
Also do you do risk assessments on black men?
“But it’s not our job to be vigilant against harmful behaviors that we can’t possibly hope to control, though. Nor is there anything that we alone can do about this. It’s incumbent upon men to make themselves safer as a group.”
How can a man in a wheelchair who cannot feed himself make himself safer?
How is he a threat?
“And there’s no way that you can do that until you accept that yes, it is all men – including you – and start working against it.”
No I will not and neither will most men… and indeed most women.
You are a minority here.
Aaminah and Melissa”
You love men but think they are all a dangerous threat to women?
You don’t know what you’re talking about do you?
With good grace.
