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 activity focuses on raising money for disease research like Alzheimer's, Prostate Cancer, 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.

If I could wave a magic wand to change the current gender-relations movements, I'd make it so that Feminism turns to dust and blows away, so tha a Women's Rights Activism type of organization take it's place. A true analogue of the MRM which is evidence-driven.

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 other than jalopyrustbuckets.

I think I might have broken my finger reblogging this. 

EVERYONE TAKE A MINUTE TO JUST APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT DONALD GLOVER EXISTS AND KNOWS WHAT THE FUCK IS UP

Oh but let’s just ignore the stories where crazy women 23

0HAVE killed their boyfriends. Yup.

Feminists: “We care about male victims of domestic violence!”

And what do they do? Send death threats to Erin Pizzey and murder her dog, and erase male victims of domestic violence whenever they can and insist that women are too weak and fragile to be threats, and even Jezebel gloats about how hilarious it was when they slapped and punched their boyfriends over trivialities, or even when one was worried he might have breast cancer (because men can’t get breast cancer oh wait yes they can but lol you go girl).  Look at this lovely white knight here, erasing male victims.   Instead of criticising it, feminists on this website are lapping this shit up like he bought them infinite refills at a bubble tea stand.

I’ve got plenty of stories I survived.

But it’s not all feminists. It’s just over 600,000 of them.

  • Feminists: Bayonetta is obviously sexualized by men for men!
  • Anti-Feminists: Actually a woman designed her and is quoted saying it's her ultimate power fantasy.
  • Feminists: It's still bad!
  • -
  • Anti-Feminists: Men are sexualized in video games too, look at all these examples.
  • Feminists: That's just a male power fantasy, it doesn't count!

"GamerGate is a hate campaign trying to push minorities and women out of the gaming scene.

In an effort to defend these marginalized groups, let us create a hashtag openly mocking their criticisms and erasing their identity because they can’t possibly know what’s best for themselves! Nope. Nothing wrong with this plan.”

Because they know that their bullshit doesnt hold up so their best hope is to silence anyone that speaks against them.

My expectations of people are getting lower every day.

i am a (female) feminist. at work, my (male) coworker and I have the EXACT same job. I get all of my work done with more precision and time to spare, as opposed to my coworker. I GET PAID LESS THAN HIM BECAUSE I AM A WOMAN. I won't even get into all the ridiculous misogyny in other parts of the world besides North America that you either refuse to acknowledge, or don't think is real. it's real, and feminism needs to exist in everybody's mind, actions and words.

As you can see, the jobs men take more often have a high risk of death and serious mental stress. The jobs that women take more often have a low risk of death and have instead minors risks such as body aches and disease. From the top five jobs by gender, you can see women tend to take safer jobs while men tend to take more dangerous jobs. The danger of those jobs must be taken into account and the people working in those dangerous jobs must be compensated.

The wage gap you hear about is an average of the entire nation. It does not represent a man and a woman in the same job field. It represents every single man and every single women in the USA. That is why it is called average. As you can see, women tend to take lower paying jobs while men tend to take higher paying jobs.

If you really are getting paid less because you’re a woman you can sue your boss or company and there is a very high chance that you will win your case.

Yes, THIS^

If there’s something illegal happening to you and all you do is whine on Tumblr instead of reporting it like you can and should…the only one holding you back is you. Not the “patriarchy” not “men”…you.
