babe i can fight the patriarchy and ride a dick those things are not mutually exclusive
I like this post.
It shows you exactly what feminists think of males.
She doesn’t even bother assigning Jim a gender… hell he doesn’t even warrant mention.
His purpose is to be an object. That’s the beginning and end of his value to her.
It’s a position all feminists share.
-sighs- That’s not want a feminist is. The point is equality. A feminist wants both male and females to be equal in ALL aspects.
BUT like every group there are the radicals who earn others who belong to the group a bad name. Please don’t just assume a small few represents the whole
Really? Because some quotes from prominent feminist disagree with you
“To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he’s a machine, a walking dildo.”
“I want to see a man beaten to a bloody pulp with a high-heel shoved in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig.”
“The more famous and powerful I get the more power I have to hurt men.”
“MAN: … an obsolete life form… an ordinary creature who needs to be watched … a contradictory baby-man …”
”TESTOSTERONE POISONING: … ‘Until now it has been though that the level of testosterone in men is normal simply because they have it. But if you consider how abnormal their behavior is, then you are led to the hypothesis that almost all men are suffering from ‘testosterone poisoning.’”
~A Feminist Dictionary
"I believe that women have a capacity for understanding and compassion which a man structurally does not have, does not have it because he cannot have it. He’s just incapable of it."
~Former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan
"Man’s discovery that his genitalia could serve as a weapon to generate fear must rank as one of the most important discoveries of prehistoric times, along with the use of fire, and the first crude stone axe."
~Susan Brownmiller, Against Our Will: Men, Women, and Rape, p. 5..
When asked: “You [Greer] were once quoted as saying your idea of the ideal man is a woman with a dick. Are you still that way inclined?”
Dr Greer (denying that she said it): “I have a great deal of difficulty with the idea of the ideal man. As far as I’m concerned, men are the product of a damanged gene. They pretend to be normal but what they’re doing sitting there with benign smiles on their faces is they’re manufacturing sperm. They do it all the time. They never stop. I mean, we women are more reasonable. We pop one follicle every 28 days, whereas they are producing 400 million sperm for each ejaculation, most of which don’t take place anywhere near an ovum. I don’t know that the ecosphere can tolerate it.”
~Germaine Greer, at a Hilton Hotel literary lunch, promoting her book #34; The Change— Women, Aging and the Menopause#34; . From a newsreport dated 14/11/91
"Romance is rape embellished with meaningful looks."
~Andrea Dworkin in the Philadelphia Inquirer, May 21, 1995..
"We are, as a sex, infinitely superior to men…"
~Elizabeth Stanton, One Woman, One Vote, Wheeler, p. 58
"Who cares how men feel or what they do or whether they suffer? They have had over 2000 years to dominate and made a complete hash of it. Now it is our turn. My only comment to men is, if you don’t like it, bad luck - and if you get in my way I’ll run you down."
~Signed: Liberated Women, Boronia. (Herald-Sun, Melbourne, Australia - 9 February 1996)
"My feelings about men are the result of my experience. I have little sympathy for them. Like a Jew just released from Dachau, I watch the handsome young Nazi soldier fall writhing to the ground with a bullet in his stomach and I look briefly and walk on. I don’t even need to shrug. I simply don’t care. What he was, as a person, I mean, what his shames and yearnings were, simply don’t matter."
~Marilyn French; The Woman’s Room.
"The male is a domestic animal which, if treated with firmness…can be trained to do most things."
~Jilly Cooper, SCUM (Society For Cutting Up Men.)
"Women have their faults / men have only two: / everything they say / everything they do."
~Popular Feminist Graffiti
"All men are good for is fucking, and running over with a truck".
~Statement made by A University of Maine Feminist Administrator, quoted by Richard Dinsmore, who brought a successful civil suit against the University in the amount of $600,000. Richard had protested the quote; was dismissed thereafter on the grounds of harassment; and responded by bringing suit against the University. 1995 settlement.
"I claim that rape exists any time sexual intercourse occurs when it has not been initiated by the woman, out of her own genuine affection and desire."
"And let’s put one lie to rest for all time: the lie that men are oppressed, too, by sexism—the lie that there can be such a thing as ‘men’s liberation groups.’ Oppression is something that one group of people commits against another group, specifically because of a ‘threatening’ characteristic shared by the latter group—skin, color, sex or age, etc. The oppressors are indeed FUCKED UP by being masters, but those masters are not OPPRESSED. Any master has the alternative of divesting himself of sexism or racism—the oppressed have no alternative—for they have no power but to fight. In the long run, Women’s Liberation will of course free men—but in the short run it’s going to cost men a lot of privilege, which no one gives up willingly or easily. Sexism is NOT the fault of women—kill your fathers, not your mothers".
MALE:…represents a variant of or deviation from the category of female. The first males were mutants…the male sex represents a degeneration and deformity of the female.
MAN:…an obsolete life form… an ordinary creature who needs to be watched…a contradictory baby-man…
~From ‘A feminist Dictionary; ed. Kramarae and Triechler, Pandora Press, 1985:
I said not to define the group by the radicals.
For example, a lot of Americans see a someone from the Middle East and they don’t trust them because of what the radicals have done. Ex: 9-11
You can’t define a GROUP by the FEW who get the PUBLIC voice. The MEDIA has a way of leaving the GOOD out of the NEWS. And when it is HIGHLIGHTED it tends to get a SMALLER amount of time on air and to have their voices in the public ear so their voices tend to get swept under this umbrella.
Females are still seen as weaker than males. We just want equality. The radicals want more.
However, you forget a group is always seen by its radicals. That’s how stereo types are made. The only way for your group to remove the stereotype is to remove the radicals. Don’t harbor those who bring you down.
Which is more important; your agreement of one important idea or your disagreement of many other important ideas?
Hello Friend. My point wasn’t to say they were getting me down. Not at all. Just that people need to STOP judging others for what RADICALS say. Ugg, it annoys me to no end
I’m not saying they’re getting you down, I’m just telling you how this stuff works. The group is represent by however screams the loudest, which is normally the radicals. I offered a solution, and I understand the annoyance.
So one time, one of my guy friends said, “I’m pretty sure I’m straight but I’ve never slept with a man so how do I know for sure if I’m not bisexual or gay” and so he actually went and picked up a guy, had sex with him and after ward he said, “Well that was fun but I appear to be straight.” and just went on with his life without making a big deal about his dip into homosexuality and really, I think everybody should be this relaxed about sexualities
