"Stop calling me “someone’s daughter”.
I’m someone.
That should be enough reason not to hurt me."

Men have written thousands of stories about how having a toxic relationship with their father has completely ruined their lives

but then make fun of girls for having “daddy issues”

ok.

"Feminists are routinely ‘accused’ of being lesbians or man-haters (as if the two are synonymous). Straight feminists often scramble to defy this stereotype by proclaiming their unfailing love for men and their affinity for bikini waxes. Some subtly distance themselves from lesbians by wearing buttons that claim ‘straight but not narrow.’ This is bullshit to me. If being called a lesbian is an insult to me, then I am an insult to lesbians. Any feminist who fears being called lesbian, or who fears association with a movement demanding civil rights for gays, lesbians, and bisexuals, is not worthy of being called feminist."

7 racially coded phrases we need to stop saying about Black people

There’s no reason why everyday social interactions or even important policy discussions need to be derailed by the perpetuation of racist tropes. By consciously examining and unpacking what’s really being said when there’s talk about black people, everyone can help ensure the discussion remains as respectful and productive as possible.

"blacks "

"Blacks" is pretty straightforward this is more a list of euphemisms.

The most dangerous thing society teaches boys and men, especially white boys and men, is that their emotions are objective logic and reason and that anyone who disagrees is being irrational.

"Women feel more guilt than men, not because of some weird chromosomal issue but because they have a history of being blamed for other people’s behavior. You get hit, you must have annoyed someone; you get raped, you must have excited someone; your kid is a junkie, you must have brought him up wrong."
Guilt Poisons Women by Germaine Greer  (via intoxicatus)

i lov thinly veiled misogyny. every1 knows girls are all the same . irrational sidechicks. hoes not being loyal. etc etc. many twitter laughs.

It’s called humor. Get a sense of it.

haha good joke! 
sexist ‘humor’ leads to people becoming more accepting of hostile feelings toward women. people feel like their dislike of women is validated when they see and hear other people making sexist jokes. quite a few studies show that sexist humor acts as a releaser of prejudice which in turn leads to more severe discrimination and even violence against women. jokes are never just jokes, they create an environment where the behaviour falls within the bounds of social acceptability.

Why do all mra’s talk like they’re bullshitting an academic paper

this assertion is fundamentally erroneous, of course, and is merely a logical fallacy concocted by anti-male propagandists, as even the most churlish and base of individuals is cognizant to the truism that not all men
