Step 1: Comment on a woman’s attractiveness on every single occasion in every single venue no matter how irrelevant it is. Build up a dating culture entirely dependent on a female’s beauty. Teach children that only attractive women will ever get anywhere in life, will ever be praised, will ever find love and have a family, will ever have a chance at happiness, are worth knowing, are worth being.
Step 2: Mock women for caring about how they look. Call them shallow.
as some people may have already noticed, google has added a link to their homepage advertising #banbossy, a movement to teach young girls how to be independent and assertive. from the website’s home page:
"When a little boy asserts himself, he’s called a ‘leader’. Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded ‘bossy’. Words like bossy send a message: don’t raise your hand or speak up. By middle school, girls are less interested in leading than boys- a trend that continues into adulthood. Together we can encourage girls to lead."
on the website, you can “pledge to ban bossy”, and that will automatically share the site on your facebook. you can share on other social media sites as well. the site has videos explaining their cause, lists of helpful tips for parents to help their daughters, and tons of other really cool stuff. if you’re not already sold on it, the movement is partially funded by the girl scouts (just one more reason to add to the list of why theyre becoming freaking awesome).
please spread around to let others know!!

"I’m gonna do it. I’m gonna kill the human."

I’m doing a persuasive speech and this would really help me out.
If you think animals should be adopted from shelters, reblog.
If you think animals should be bought from pet stores, like.
This was actually said by a prominent member of the Men’s rights community on Reddit who then proceeded to get 24(!) upvotes:
Wearing a skirt has consequences. If we use state violence to protect women from the consequences of her choice to wear a skirt, we remove her agency. This man didn’t assault her, didn’t touch her… all he did was take a picture of what her choice in clothing exposed to the public.
How is that criminal to the point of deserving of state violence upon him?
This is saying that protecting women from the consequences of their choices in clothing is more important than men’s freedom.
Now that’s what I call a real men’s rights issue. Could you expect anything less from a hate group?
Screencap (and more info) over at the always excellent Man Boobz.
Mens Rights Activism: hard at work defending sexual harassment.
men’s rights: where a man’s right to sexually harass a woman based on whether they’ve decided she meets some standard of “modesty” she has no say in, should supersede a woman’s right to basic personal boundaries and human decency.
men’s rights: when a woman freely making the choice to do whatever she wants with her own body, not affecting anyone else in any way, needs to “accept the consequences of her actions”- but men who choose to harass women shouldn’t have to face any consequences for THAT choice, even though it hurts someone else.
men’s rights: a “movement” (purposeless online misogynistic circlejerk) where rights are defined as behaviors that you feel entitled to carry out without being even mildly criticized for it, no matter how many other people are negatively impacted by that behavior.
men’s rights: where being asked to show basic human decency towards women is “infringing” upon a man’s freedom not to do that, even though that is how a society is supposed to fucking function. because fuck them, you shouldn’t have to consider other human beings when you make your choices. how dare they?
men’s rights: you got yours (basic human rights). so fuck everybody else. now, let’s talk about how poor people don’t deserve to earn a living wage, because then the services you use every day might cost you an extra $20 per year.
men’s rights: a movement dedicated to preserving and forwarding the rights of men to continue the subjugation and abuse of women.
I’m so embarrassed to share a gender with these pieces of shit.
Dr. Caroline Heldman breaks it down
Amazing video. Should be required viewing for high school students. I may make it required viewing for my future college students.
"The Fighting Fucktoy" is my new favourite phrase.

This documentary was awesome and powerful definitely recommend that you guys watch it!
To those who argue against the idea that physically strong characters are not necessarily empowered characters, I highly recommend watching Miss Representation. Also for TONS of other reasons (this is only one topic covered). Basically, watch Miss Representation.
I think my “favorite” example of this is from Van Helsing, with Hugh Jackman. There is a “strong female character” who, in every scene, is holding a sword, but she never swings it, NEVER uses it. She swaggers around town with it, packs it with her on a journey, but she is neeeeever allowed (by scriptwriters, directors, whoever) to use it. Hugh Jackman is the goddamn hero of this film and ain’t nobody else going to do the heroing in this movie! But of course, she wore a tight corset, tight pants, perfect hair and makeup, etc. etc.
