Pro-Feminist Bro: Strategies for Engaging Men: Take It Personal

profeministbro:

My blog now has over 400 followers (!) so I figure instead of just reblogging Bob’s Burgers .gif sets, I should try and do something helpful for the people reading it. That in mind, I’m going to be posting up a new “series” on engaging men. This one is about my own personal experience.

Note: I…

every single person you know has something in their life and past that is probably worth collapsing to the ground in an uncontrollably sobbing heap over, so be nice to each other and tell good jokes

This actually brought tears to my eyes..

Well, it was obviously an unfortunate incident … It kind of made me sad on two accounts. One was that I was very sad that we live in an age when someone takes a picture of another person in a vulnerable moment, and rather than delete it and do the decent thing, sells it. And I’m sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies sexuality of unwilling participants, which brings us back to Les Mis, because that’s what the character [Fantine] is. She is someone who is forced to sell sex to benefit her child because she has nothing and there’s no social safety net so yeah—let’s get back to Les Mis.

The story begins a few days ago, when I saw someone post a picture of this card on Twitter:

Like more or less anyone with a modicum of sense, I was pretty grossed out. I mean, this is real DISCUSSION CIRCLE stuff. Some sample questions:

What’s the line between funny and offensive?

Brute Reason: Men are always asking me "why is feminism still important?" and "why should I care about feminism?"

brute-reason:

I can’t answer that for you. Go out and learn it.

Go into the city with a female friend. Walk 20 feet behind her and listen.

Make an account on a social site. Use a female name and photo. Post something, anything.

Go to a Take Back The Night march. Listen to the survivors speak out…

"MA'AM" - MEN AGAINST ASSHOLES & MISOGYNY: Iain Lacourt is a "MA'AM"

menagainstassholesandmisogyny:

imageA few years ago, I was living in student housing with a few friends. We were all involved in theatre, threw several loud parties, and generally spent our days as carefree arts students often do. Mostly we ignored our other neighbours, except to scoff at the occasional noise complaint….

"MA'AM" - MEN AGAINST ASSHOLES & MISOGYNY: Greg Proops is a "MA'AM"

menagainstassholesandmisogyny:

I detest misogyny. I see it all day, every day in the clubs I work in, on the news, on TV , in the paper and on the internet. Women are fat, or poorly dressed, they are hot, they are drunks or sluts or anything but people. Objectifying Women is to deny Women their Personhood. You are just…

Jen Kirkman - comedian: Twitter Hiatus Until The Men I Know Get Loud

jenkirkman:

I’m on a Twitter strike. I am so sick of the way men on Twitter treat women. And my male friends always DM me or text me or email me or talk to me about how they hate it too but they never speak up.

Let me be perfectly clear - this has nothing to do with the “women aren’t funny” argument. I am…

BROS: Reclaiming The Long Gaze

brosorg:

I have a real problem with objectifying women. Now, you could read that two ways, and both ways would be true for me. I do indeed take issue with the objectification of women in our world, but I’m talking about my own problem of objectifying women. I’m taking that important first step in solving a…

"MA'AM" - MEN AGAINST ASSHOLES & MISOGYNY: DC PIERSON IS A "MA'AM"

menagainstassholesandmisogyny:

I’m in. And this isn’t something I should have had to wait until it got this bad to be “in” about. This is something we should’ve done on our own and I’m sorry about that. But anyway, here goes.

The rest of this post is addressed to men in general, more specifically straight men who use the…

Double standards are weird and these look like really wonky Daniel Clowes characters.

double standards aren’t weird. if a man is a feminist, he’s lying. if a woman says she’s a feminist, it’s because she’s too god damn fucking ugly to get laid, so she wants to make it hard for anyone to else to get laid. 

lol you’re a super unpleasant person
