The NotABlog

Slowly learning about tumblr. It really sucks as a blogging platform, but it's pretty good at being a shithole filled with internet arguments.

Standard bs tumblr intro: I take an Egalitarian approach for non-specific issues, but call myself an MRA when it's relevant. I remember being a pseudo-MRA before AVFM became a real website.

My real-world fundraising and activism focuses on raising money for disease research like Alzheimer's and Heart Disease.

I have reached the conclusion that the Feminist movement is rotten from the core outwards, and needs to either be burned to the ground and reconstructed, or abandoned. Problems for any group exist, and could stand to be addressed, but I think it needs to be done in a better framework.

What I'd like to see happen in my fantasy world is for Feminism to turn to dust and blow away, and for a Women's Rights Activism type of organization take it's place.

Equal risk plus equal expectations and obligations should lead to equal rewards.

This blog mostly consists of reblogs of MRA stuff, and anti-feminist stuff (when the two intersect), with a steady drip feed of fun tumblr chaff to help the information go down a bit easier.

Too much awful news and hatred is really exhausting. That's why I don't generally track tags.

so today at work I cleaned this old man’s golf clubs and I thought he was getting his wallet out of his bag but instead he pulls out this giant plastic target bag of yellow plums. he tipped us in yellow plums. he told us not to tell anyone we had these and I looked them up because they were so good and these plums are illegal in the US. I got tipped in illegally imported plums.

It might just be me, but it seems like this whole 'Fedora/neckbeard' thing has an anti-intellectual streak to it. Like, every 'example' of a 'neckbeard' I see involves unnecessarily long words and overly-intelligent language... It kind of reminds me of those people who insult the 'nerds' in school, by parodying the traditional hallmarks of intelligence... Admittedly, I've not met any 'neckbeards' in real life, so maybe... But it just strikes me as that sort of 'intelligence is evil' attitude...

I don’t know if it’s anti-intellectual, but I do think it literally is exactly the same thing as making fun of unattractive nerds in high school, but prettied up so it can be considered acceptable to keep bashing unattractive people now that being geeky is actually becoming more acceptable so you can’t get away with picking on unattractive people any more just for that alone.

I think it fuels the whole “fake geek girl” debate as well; basically there’s a bunch of girls who want in on the new trendy geek stuff but don’t want to have to actually interact with the actual geeks they still find grody, so quick, find some excuse to force them to have to let you take over their cultural spaces while not having to deign to actually try being genuine friends (or at least co-community dwellers) with them. If you completely tear apart their communities in the process by convincing enough geeks to buy your rhetoric and turn on their friends, all the better. ***

I personally have met some “neckbeards” both in real life and online, and been friends with a number of them, and you know what? All of them, to a t, were legitimately decent guys who had no issues with women.

Meanwhile, you know who were the ones who perpetrated things like Steubenville? The attractive, cleancut guys who sport neither fedora nor neckbeard. The ones who, you know, are actually attractive and popular enough to get away with hating women openly.

Fedora/neckbeard hate isn’t actually about fighting sexism. It’s just the same old shaming people for being unattractive or socially outcast wrapped up in a gilded bow to be more acceptable. I’m ashamed for humanity that said gilded bow is actually successfully fooling people.

*** Seriously, so far I’ve recently lost at least two friends I used to get along great with for years because they couldn’t handle that they’ve bought into feminist rhetoric and I didn’t, and geek communities in general have become a minefield where everything and everyone is offensive and everyone’s pointing fingers at each other all day. Tell me how feminism has helped me as a geek girl, again, when it’s actually made my geek communities LESS welcoming and fun to me than they used to be? I never ever had to actually worry about male geeks rejecting me as a geek girl until you femfolks brainwashed some of them into feminist claptrap. GG.

Yes these are from two different websites but the fact is, this happens, a lot. Some women screaming that catcalling isn’t flattering while other women scream that if they don’t get catcalled it makes them feel unattractive. It would be nice if everyone could get on the same page with this and stop confusing the fuck out of people.

You mean… All women don’t think the same?

Okay since you clearly missed the fucking point. Feminists scream up and down that catcalling is horrible but at the same time when some of them fail to get catcalled they complain this makes them feel bad. Yes this is actually called sending mixed signals. If you even see in the other one the girl even knows it’s creepy but still wants it to happen anyway. Learn to read. Or don’t. Whatever. I’m not even sure why I try to make points on this website any more.

There’s no need to be rude, and no, I didn’t miss the point. As a matter of fact, you’ve just said that it’s confusing for you that two girls who have certainly never met each other, have different opinions. You can’t make points with such an illogical statement. 

"You don’t have to be rude"
*responds with smart ass picture and comment first*
Shut up bitch. You were extremely rude to me first now wanna complain that I’m rude back? Because I wasn’t the one rude first.

Secondly yeah this is a huge fucking problem within the feminist cult. FEMINIST. YOU KNOW A GROUP OF WOMEN WHO CLAIM TO ALL HOLD THE SAME BELIEFS.

Feminists. FEMINISM. Yeah clearly you didn’t get the point at all, you are a smart ass, wanna pretend you aren’t, and then yell at me like I’m the rude one. Like I said. I don’t know why I try to make points on this website any more cause air heads like you don’t ever understand them.

"you mean women don’t all think the same?"

I dunno, maybe you should ask that question on “yesallwomen”

This helped cause I had no idea.

 I wouldn’t worry about it half the people that live in the UK have no idea how the flag came about. The only problem with this image is that the flag is actually called the Union Flag not the Union Jack, except when it’s on the bow of a warship which was its original use.

Graffiti I saw on my way home from school 2day hell yes hell yes hell yes

Oh look

Feminists and their Madonna Whore Complex again

"women cannot consent to sex, any woman who chooses to be in porn is being raped, no woman can ever have any sexual agency also gay porn doesn’t exist"

Take your reduction of women to helpless damsel maidens and shove it. 

I like the anarchy symbol there at the end. Like who the fuck is gonna punish rapists if we don’t have a government? We did that whole anarchy thing for hundreds of thousands of years, there was a lot of rape. 

Who wants to bet op did the graffiti?

It’s too well orchestrated.

I hope someone painted over that retarded shit.

First of all, I did not.

Secondly, I think the lot of you are completely missing the point of this. It’s about MAINSTREAM porn. The porn industry. Which is extremely harmful, dehumanizing and probably one of the most sexist things in the world.

It doesn’t say ANYWHERE that all porn is bad. It doesn’t say ANYWHERE that people who want to do porn are bad.

Fucking read, for once.

And, finally, that ableist slur is fucking gross.

"First of all, I did not."

If this was a fairy tale, your tongue would have turned into a toad for telling such an outrageous lie.

"Secondly, I think"

No you don’t think.  If you thought you wouldn’t have approved of that graffiti.

"the lot of you are completely missing the point of this. It’s about MAINSTREAM porn"

Oh right, you didn’t mean all porn, just an extremely nebulous umbrella term to describe rape.  Way to remove women of sexual agency from all women by turning them into helpless damsels AND trivialise rape by comparing consensual business transactions (where women are paid much, much, much, much higher then men) to forcing someone to have sex against their will.  Go on,.  Go up to a rape victim and tell them Jenna Jameson was raped.  I’m sure they’ll love you for that.

"The porn industry. Which is extremely harmful, dehumanizing and probably one of the most sexist things in the world."

If you parrot so many buzzwords at once, you’ll choke.

"It doesn’t say ANYWHERE that all porn is bad. It doesn’t say ANYWHERE that people who want to do porn are bad."

You just said the overwhelming majority of porn is rape, shit-for-brains.  Remember what you said five minutes ago, I’m not your fucking biographer. 

"Fucking read, for once."

Stop posting bullshit, and posting pretentious, hypocritical hissy fits when people call you out on your bullshit.

"And, finally, that ableist slur is fucking gross."

Slur?  You don’t know the fucking meaning of the word.  Get over yourself.

Also, I wonder what minimum wage employee is going to be stuck painting over or removing over the self-indulgent vandalism that occurs when pretentious prima donnas feel like they have a right and duty to scrawl their half-baked Wimmin’s Studies dogma on other people’s property?

Except people do. And then get accused ised of not doing it. Or people don’t listen and exclusively focus their resources on female victims. And when people bring that up people say they don’t really care. And when conversation is exclusively framed in terms of what men do to women, well…

They’re talking about it. Y’all just ain’t listening.

You know, when men actually have tired to talk about or help male victims of domestic violence or rape, these things happen: 

But please, tell me again that men’s issues only come on the coattails of women’s issues when Feminism™ does it more often.

[PS - When I use the ™ symbol, it’s my way to not only be critical of Feminism but also to separate the radical ones from those who are against everything Feminism™ has done, on this list and more.]

Never get tired of these Smackdowns

Holy crap, that’s one he’ll of a list.

A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.

Police State USAreports  that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.

Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.

Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.

The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?

Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?

Guy’s bond has been set at $3 million dollars.

Thank you lieutenantnorals!

"cop breaks and enters with state approval, gets his ass shot"

brah………………. BRUV……………………..

this happened in Texas where it is perfectly legal to shoot and kill someone who is breaking into your home

Literally everybody knows that in Texas you can open fire on someone who comes onto your property without permission. What in the hell did they expect??

Literally all freshmen can be referred to as fresh meat? Like, this isn’t gendered in the slightest.

I’ve heard women call boys fresh meat…it’s even in the fucking media. There’s also the term “man flesh” in existence which I have seen used seriously before and there’s not even a female version of that as far as I’m aware.

Women objectify the hell out of those they’re attracted to just as much as men do.

So kindly take your willful ignorance and fuck off.

"Fresh meat" is a term made by seniors of high school and college of any gender to patronize freshman of any gender. It’s like this guy is making things up to profit off women’s fear. I wouldn’t be surprised if he said initiation is a women’s-only issue too. This is the problem with western gender activism. If being a woman is that bad in the west, why do you have to make things up just to sound smart? 

-Indigo 

I’ve actually never heard fresh meat used in this sexual way..?

Has anyone else?

Nope. Not really.

Why Hollywood, why?

Sure, it’s probably to appeal to those people who lack imagination and say that fantasy characters need to be realistic, but I’m still not satisfied.
