40% of domestic abuse victims are male
Feminism fights gender roles, gender norms. Gender roles say that men aren’t allowed to be hurt, emotional, and god forbid they get beat up by women. Feminists don’t want that for men. That’s saying that all the “stereotypes” of femininity are weak and not to be desired. Feminist goals would allow for men to get treatment and help at abuse centers.
then explain why feminists threatened an all male domestic abuse shelter with bomb threats until they shut themselves down. I am also fairly sure afterwards, feminists purchased it and turned it into an all women’s shelter.
Yo, feminists fought to close the only male shelter within fifty miles of my area, which directly contributed to my brother’s death at the hands of his abusive wife.
So don’t even try to tell me that feminists care about men. Because in the majority of cases, that’s not true.
If feminists want to keep claiming they “help men too”, they really need to step their game up.
I love how feminism fights “violence against women” directly, but when it comes to men, it’s just “we’re, uh, fighting gender roles!” Because they know men aren’t being fought for directly. And even the ones that do claim there’s direct activism almost never provide examples.
Also, many domestic violence policies basically amount to “the man is the abuser, and the woman was just defending herself”. You’re not going to fix that by just addressing women’s gender roles.
Also, “abuse is violence against women”. Sound familiar?
Every time a feminist claims that feminism isn’t to blame for men not being recognized as domestic violence victims, I just point them straight to the Duluth model and primary aggressor laws.
I like the general message of this post, but it continues to bother me that people think men are berated for being ‘like women’. No. Men are berated for not fitting into their gender roles. It has nothing to do with the world hating feminine behaviour and everything to do with the world hating behaviour that steps outside a socially defined norm.
Hate how people try to make it about women when the problem is something that hurts men. It just sucks.
Listening to each other means that men should be given their own spaces and trusted to talk about the issues that affect them without being silenced (this has next to never happened and i patently wait for the day it does.)
Not everything is a women’s problem, and not everything effects only women.
as said earlier, men aren’t belittled for being “like a girl”, they are belittled and hurt for not fitting into society’s expectations. That is it.
When girls are belittled for “acting like a boy”, its not because people think boys are “bad”, it’s because the girl doesn’t fit into society’s box. It doesn’t automatically become a men’s issue, so don’t make the pain that boys go through about women.
Vice.Com can go fuck themselves.
Read the article yourself->: Note the explicit absence of the word rape.
THEY ACTUALLY MADE UP NEW WORDS TO DESCRIBE SEX SO THEY WOULDN’T HAVE TO USE THE WORD RAPE TO DESCRIBE WHAT A WOMAN DOES TO A BOY.
Fuck everything about these people.
You fucktards need to know the whole story. Wanna now how the they got cought? The kid was bragging to his school mates about it. Not rape just sex so gtf over it
No. No. NO. People are focusing entirely on the wrong aspect of this story. This is not a case that should revolve around gender. The crime here is pedophilia, abuse of power, and statutory rape.
I don’t care if the kid was down with it, or pursued it, or enjoyed it. No adult, regardless of gender, should be allowed to have sex with a child.
As a teacher myself, this story absolutely disgusted me. Educators are supposed to protect their students use them.
Actually the crime here is statutory rape, fullstop. Pedophilia is a mental illness not a crime. We gotta stop using child molestor interchangeably with pedophile. It’s not fair to those seeking help.
It doesn’t matter if the kids were bragging about that shit, by law they were raped because they do not have the ability to consent. If it was a 14 girl bragging about being with her 50 year old teacher, is it not rape????
Remember James Franco flirted with a 16 year old girl and EVERYONE was freaking the fuck out, calling him a rapist, pedophile and even demanding his arrest even though he never touched her? Well, We need to see that kind of outrage here. But since it was a woman on male crime nobody gives two flying fucks. Look at the notes. Barely 2k. Why the fuck aren’t people worried about the fact that the news called a rape “simultaneous SEX”? I just can’t even tumblr.
Because we’re men and we arent cared about until we do something wrong
look how quickly people are to defend these sick women.
