Anti-feminists: Feminists hate men and don’t respect them!
Anti-feminists: Men can’t control their sexual urges.
Anti-feminists: Men shouldn’t dress or act in ways that are typically feminine, even if that’s what they want.
Anti-feminists: Real men take what they want, they don’t ask for it.
Anti-feminists: Dressing like a slut and expecting not to get raped is like wearing a meat suit around a pack of lions.
Anti-feminists: Men are physically the larger and stronger gender.
Anti-feminists: Men are just hornier than women, they aren’t to blame for their sexual aggression or sexual violence.
Anti-feminists: Men are just more stoic and less emotional than women.
Anti-feminists: Men just aren’t caregivers the way women are; parenting doesn’t come naturally to men.
Anti-feminists: Men are better built to handle combat and stressful, dangerous situations.
Anti-feminists: Boys will be boys and men will be men.
Anti-feminists: Men are simple, women are complicated.
Anti-feminists: Men who support feminism are either gay, pussy-whipped, or trying to get laid.
Anti-feminists: Fuck feminists, we are the only ones who respect men!

Misandry Mermaid literally making shit up about a movement she doesn’t support? Color me surprised.

it's kind of... mean-spirited and hateful to run an entire blog just to publically make fun of people. idk, this isn't meant as hate, just baffled. have fun.

Laughing at and making fun of hateful, racist, sexist, bigoted idiots is fun to me. I don’t think that’ll change much.

Yes there are kids on here talking about things that they don't understand that has to do with social justice and things that relate to it, but please do not discourage them from talking about it. If somebody is wrongly informed on something that has to do with social justice, don't bash them for it, explain it to them so that they understand. A lot of the kids that are on here do want to further their knowledge on subjects pertaining to social justice. Also I'm sorry if this came off as rude.

It’s not rude, don’t worry.

I don’t bash people for TALKING about sexism, racism, any of that shit. Having a discussion is fine. It’s when they start making absurd claims, or say things that are just blatantly stupid, without thought, or overtly hostile that I enjoy laughing at them for.

Things like, “ALL WHITE PEOPLE ARE RACIST PIECES OF SHIT” Which I’ve seen plenty of. Most of them don’t even see the irony and hypocrisy of the sentence.

Thing is, I remember what it was like to be a kid. Most of them are overconfident, think they’re the only one with problems, and have very little worldy experience to actually have a good discussion on it. Is it okay for them to look into it? Yeah, no shit. But here on Tumblr, there’s very little that actually gets them to look at other perspectives. Unlike real life, where ridicule and differing opinions are a thing, they can pretty much just bounce stupidity off each other without any consequence or anyone challenging them.

If they don’t want to hear an opinion, they can LITERALLY block it. Straight up. That’s toxic as fuck, and anyone with half a brain knows this.

I don’t say things to random kids talking about important issues. Just the fucking morons screaming at the top of their lungs that their parents are misogynists and sexists for not letting their 14 year old kid go to some party filled with drinking adults.

I am 22 year old woman and am on tumblr to post about videogames anime funny shit etc and I constantly see all these posts from 13-17 year old kids about all this crazy social justice stuff and I want to delete. tumblr didn't used to be like this. I have always defined myself as a liberal and can't believe some of this stuff is sooo extreme like it just blows my mind. everything to these people is racist sexist or transphobic like idk what the fuck is happening anymore and I am afraid 0.0

It’s just a bunch of kids whining at each other about things they think they understand, but don’t. Not only that, but very few of them do much other than whine about it on Tumblr.

Anonymous asked:

Is it true that some girl killed herself ,when 4chan attacked Tumblr, or is this the special snowflakes making up crap again?

Nope, no one killed themselves. It was Tumblr making shit up as per usual, in a desperate attempt to get 4chan to stop invading their “safe space,” which is hilarious, considering Tumblr is a public forum that literally anyone can post anything on.

"Now if only they could get the machine to periodically say "Not tonight, I have a headache"…]
THIS is why I need feminism

Do they even realize that sperm alone does not create a child?

"This is sexist, we need feminism!"
"#men are idiots" in the tagging.
Self-awareness level: Somewhere in the negatives.
Not to mention that I’ve seen this shit come from plenty of tumblrites towards men, but the second a man makes some stupid joke very clearly not meant to be taken seriously, everyone on Tumblr shits themselves.
God, I fucking love this website. Never change, Tumblr.

I like to think I have a pretty good sense of humour. I can make fun of myself, so I can handle a few sexist jokes about women - but in the right atmosphere. Maybe they were joking. Maybe they were even being sarcastic, I don’t know, I’m not one to say. But we are treating it out of context, both you and me. That being said, this becomes a comment on the type of men who truly think this way: i.e. sexist men. Thus, these become sexist men who think it’s better to eradicate the opposite sex than live equal to them. In this case, yes these #men are idiots. I don’t believe in a utopia without men, so I don’t agree with any man who believes in a utopia without women. I don’t believe in radical feminism because I don’t believe that women and men should be at war with each other. 
But fine, you wanna redirect my comment into some sort of reverse sexism, which incidentally isn’t possible because men will never experience oppression because of their sex? Go ahead, because now you’re the one who can’t take a joke.

I was actually relatively on board until the second paragraph. Reverse sexism doesn’t exist, it’s just called sexism. Sexism isn’t a one-way thing by any means.
See, one thing I can never figure out is why everyone on Tumblr likes to pretend that Institutionalized sexism/racism, the kind you’re talking about, is the only kind of sexism/racism. Because that’s not how that works, sorry. You can be sexist or racist to anyone, and doing so doesn’t make it any less of a shitty thing to do, regardless of whether or not you’re ~*Oppressed*~.
Another thing: I didn’t realize that laughing at irony was being “unable to take a joke.”

I just found your blog and dug through pages and pages because I was so thoroughly amused and honestly it filled me with such glee I don't think I could properly vocalize how much I adore your blog. It's beyond my personal vocabulary how much everything on your blog made me smile and it feels so good to know that people who can think logically and display a level of reading comprehension beyond third grade. Thank you for being amazing and not being afraid to voice your opinions.

It’s not like it’s that big a deal, really. If you understand why the things these people say are logically and factually wrong, you simply need to point it out. I do it with snark because I find it funny, and I guess other people do too for.. whatever reason.

I think deep down, SJWs and tumblr just can't admit they just think things are uncool. Maybe it feels better to have a righteous reason to dislike something.

Well yeah, it’s like crack. Feeling like someone has wronged you is an amazing, “I am absolutely for sure in the right so FUCK you” type of sensation that can honestly get addicting. There’s a reason people literally make shit up to be offended at.

THANK YOU FOR EXISTING. your blog brings calm rationality to a website that's so quick to get angry and it's much needed tbh. i was getting ready to delete but your blog is a breath of fresh air and i like how you prove that you can calmly/rationally promote good values without getting all "tumblr social justice"-y if u know what i mean so THANKS DUDE

Thanks person! I try to do that. Though I’m not always calm, I mostly just make fun of ‘em for fun. I’m honestly surprised I managed to get 600 followers by making fun of stupid people.
