Just remember that The Amazing Atheist is a guy whose misogyny got him driven out of Reddit. I’ll say that again: this is a man who displayed a level of misogyny that caused Redditors to go “you’ve crossed a line and you should leave.”
I almost kind of can’t believe people still listen to this guy. he really is an enormous douche.
even the Men’s Rights subreddit couldn’t take his shit anymore.
THE MRA SUBREDDIT, PEOPLE.
this photoset sums up Magic tournaments so perfectly
YES I saw this guy on Reddit yesterday, I love his poses next to all the asscracks…
I also love that this is exactly how you imagine a M:TG tournament would look.
For a long time I never really took the men’s rights movement very seriously. This oppressive “no shorts in the workplace” policy has really opened my eyes.
oh, y’all so cute.
from r/cringepics: ”I ate lunch with this guy everyday my freshman year. He now “models” in Houston/LA .”
Harry Potter graffiti in the 3rd floor ladies’ room of the Cathedral of Learning at U Pitt. (Found via Reddit.)
YES! I taught in the room right down the hall from here so at break I would always try to pick that stall. I may or may not have contributed to this….
Good Guy Greg has a female counterpart, Good Girl Gina! While Good Guy Greg does things like be kind, considerate, humble, and respectful, Good Girl Gina is simply a smiling sex toy that has no personality of her own, doesn’t argue with you or have emotions, disappears when she’s on her period, and, of course, makes you food.
I say “children” because I am pretty sure grown men would find a compliant sex doll who just wanted to do whatever you wanted all the time to be quite boring after awhile. But still… GROSS.
i did it
i made the perfect polyvore set
As if cats weren’t popular enough on the internet, redditor SteveV91 has uploaded some of the most adorable photos of the house pets hanging out with their nearly identical kittens.
From a comment on the site:
The Cap’m: People tend to not know what rape really is- as some of the contributors (and the article) said, many of them didn’t realize that what they were doing wasn’t okay. For them it was a logical extension of normal desire. One can argue, “Well, they SHOULD know that it’s not okay!” but the reason that rape is so prevalent is that they don’t. A lot of these actions were taken in private, and justified by assumptions- now they’re being exposed and their justifications are revealed to be empty.
Rape isn’t just about individual actions/evil, it’s also about the way that our society views sex and women. It’s a part of a system, which we can change. (That’s what the phrase “Rape is about power, not sex,” should really be interpreted to mean.) Highlighting the types of sexism that lead to the most common types of rape, (and not just the act of rape itself, which is generally taken to mean “forcing yourself on a screaming girl that you’ve leapt on in an alleyway”) as not okay could very well force at least some guys to reevaluate their decisions if they end up in a similar situation.
Good news is always welcome.
"It’s depressing that anyone should have to explain why this is a problem. It seems totally obvious to me. But apparently, it’s not so obvious. So I’m going to spell it out.
When the topic of misogyny comes up, and men change the subject, it trivializes misogyny.
When the topic of misogyny comes up, and men change the subject, it conveys the message that whatever men want to talk about is more important than misogyny.
When the topic of misogyny comes up, and men change the subject to something that’s about them, it conveys the message that men are the ones who really matter, and that any harm done to men is always more important than misogyny.
And when the topic of misogyny comes up, and men change the subject, it comes across as excusing misogyny. It doesn’t matter how many times you say, “Yes, of course, misogyny is terrible.” When you follow that with a “Yes, but…”, it comes across as an excuse. In many cases, it is an excuse. And it contributes to a culture that makes excuses for misogyny.”
