If you really loved your body you would take care of it.
Part of taking care of your body involves maintaining a healthy weight, regular exercise, and eating healthy food regularly while cutting down on junk food.
Men being raped: It’s about women!
Men’s rape not being taken serious: It’s about women!
Men being falsely accused of rape: It’s about women!
Men being abused: It’s about women!
Men’s abuse not being taken serious: It’s about women!
Men dying in wars: It’s about women!
Men being most of the homeless: It’s about women!
Men having their kids taken away by the courts: It’s about women!
Men not being able to find dates: It’s about women!
Boys being forgotten and their grades slipping in schools: It’s about women!
But if a man expresses anger over this, they’re SCREAMED AT for making everything about men!
Great point. I agree that patriarchy does play a role in these things, but on the other hand I hate how many feminists try to twist these things into misogyny. Also failure to take into account other factors like race, poverty, and how men see each other in certain contexts.
And once you bring up trans males it gets even messier.
However I’m not sure how “Men not being able to find dates” is a real problem? I mean nobody is obligated to date anyone.
A man can be arrested for being abused by his wife.
Keep saying sexism against men doesn’t exist.
It’s because men don’t believe a man can be abused by his wife because women are too weak to actually abuse a man and overpower him. That’s still oppression of women. Sexism against women. Not men.
If that’s was the case — that women are viewed as being too weak to be capable of abusing a man — than why would the man get arrested in this case? The police would just say, “nope those bruises and scrapes couldn’t have been possible caused by a woman. Go sell that story to someone gullible enough to believe it”.
The real reason why men are assumed to be the abuser in domestic disputes is because men are generally seen as brutish and callous, whereas women are seen as innocent and vulnerable, and more worthy of protection than men are.
This site is too liberal.
Like, I get that people are allowed to choose to not have sex/have sex/wear what they please without public scrutiny. I get that you should be able to marry someone you love without restrictions from the government. These are points that I can understand. However, sometimes this site is extremely accepting to the point where it’s disturbing.
I was scrolling down my dash and I saw a post pertaining to fat people, and she said that even if you’re unhealthy, then it should only matter to you and that it’s your body, you can do what you want. And people agreed.
That pisses me off to the nth degree. Of course being unhealthy is bad. It’s bad because you’re putting yourself at risk for diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. and your making your life harder to live. Sometimes, you can be chubby and healthy, as long as you are fit. Living a life where you just scarf down junk food and not workout is not empowering, beautiful, inspirational nor self-loving. It’s bad for you. It affects the loved ones around you. They just want you to live a good lifestyle without having health scares.
Like, damn. I have a cousin who has a tumblr. She’s a good person, but she’s overweight. I’m genuinely concerned for her, but she has a ‘tumblr’ mentality. She doesn’t want to exercise or eat better food. She lives at home with her parents because she’s too lazy to get a job. She’s inactive and lethargic, but she’s happy. That’s her excuse. She has ‘fat pride’ and as a result she can’t be a productive member of society anymore. She doesn’t want to better herself because tumblr convinced her that being overweight is fine. No one should tell you how to live your life. Being unhealthy is okay. It bothers the shit out of me and I really do think this site needs to think out what kind of message it’s trying to send to its users.
But oh I forgot, you should be allowed to do whatever you want with yourself as long as it doesn’t affect anyone else! Don’t hurt anyones feelings now! Let’s allow people to be obese. In fact, why don’t we let teens shoot up heroin, and let women be anorexic, and let people drink constantly? Why don’t we let people smoke to the point of cancer, and let people self-harm, and let people make dangerous life choices? Yeah, lets fucking allow everything because no ones feelings should get hurt! Shaming for whatever reason makes you horrible and you should die!! People shouldn’t be allowed to stop yourself from hurting yourself, because it’s your life, you do what you want!!!!!
It’s perfectly fine to show off your body whenever you want and however you like, naked or not. It’s perfectly fine to pose nude and express your sexuality to others. It’s perfectly fine to participate in nude photoshoots.
It’s perfectly fine to express female nudity and sexuality.
Unless of course you’re American Apparel or PETA.
It’s perfectly fine to have sexual fantasies about being raped or raping a partner as long as your fantasy remains that, a fantasy. It’s perfectly fine to roleplay and pretend to rape or be raped. It’s perfectly fine to fantasize about being someone’s sex slave, to be dominated or to dominate. It’s perfectly healthy to indulge in sexual fantasies that involve dubious consent, bondage, pain, torture, etc. by roleplaying, viewing porn, and fanfiction on it.
It’s perfectly fine to write and read fiction about your sexual fantasies that involve all of the above.
Unless of course it becomes a best-selling novel.
Tumblr: the place where you can pick apart a song and twist the lyrics to prove a certain artist is a misogynist.
I am of course talking about this.
Yeah some of the stuff does seem problematic, but it seems this SJW has gone out of their way to nitpick, even labeling all the sexual lines as violence and abuse meanwhile taken from the song those lines would just be raunchy “smack dat ass yo” stuff. This person probably also finds the song “Wild Thing” offensive just for the word “Wild Thing” and probably does not get metaphors, or that people sometimes break up with others because the other person becomes an asshole? Then the word “twat” is used to bash the lyics despite attacking the guy for using the word “bitch”.
Then they had to put a fedora on it.
Really I haven’t heard this guys stuff but it reminds me of how Taylor Swift’s lyrics are picked apart and demonized. Meanwhile Ke$ha is praised and gets away with this.
Reminder that childhood obesity is a real thing and a serious epidemic and has increased the rate of childhood diabetes and can lead to permanent obesity. It won’t destroy a child’s self-esteem to encourage them to loose weight if medically necessary.
OF COURSE we’re hetero-normative. Forget politics, forget ,religion for a second. Speaking from a purely EVOLUTIONARY sense, heterosexuality is the norm because it’s the only way most animal species can freaking PROCREATE. If humans weren’t “hetero-normative” we would…
Hello I’d like to say something. I’m a south american 21 year old individual and I’ve been involved in leftist organizations in my country, Brazil. And by ‘organizations’ I mean ‘people who actually go into the streets to concretely do something and end up being violently repressed by police’. By ‘repressed’ I mean ‘getting beat up, arrested and shot with gas bombs and rubber bullets’ and not ‘having muh feelings hurt’. I’d like to say the “social justice” tumblr community is not leftist in any way. These people are simply advocating a cheap, disguised individualism. They’re trying to get attention by advocating a corpus of morality that is as authoritarian as the right-wing christian-based morality. A morality that is based on political-correctness, which is, well, just another form of censuring people. This kind of ideology contributes nothing to the cause of leftism, and makes uniformed people believe leftism is some sort of joke.
I just saw this documentary on Autism by people with Autism. There where some rather insightful things but, I just gotta say;
In one part a guy says that Autistics are “rational and calm” and that “what about the other side of the spectrum those people must be explosive and emotional” wtf like Autistic people can’t get like that and holy shit that sounds arrogant to stamp your “people” as more rational and calm. It’s one of those things about the neurodiversity movement that kinda irritate me it’s like the new left-handed.
Also the notion of “you’re trying to cure me because I make you uncomfortable” kinda sounds like a tyrannical spin on things; but you know there are lots of people with Bipolar, Schizophrenia, OCD, Exhibitionism, Borderline etc. that feel like they should be left alone despite how much they destroy themselves and those around them. Maybe it’s a stretch to apply it to Autism but I’m just saying there is a validity other than tyrannical conformity.
It seems that not everyone agrees exactly what is meant by neurodiversity, so when some people explain it I can kinda agree but when others explain it, it comes out as Thomas Szas-ish bullshit. Thomas Szas is this “psychologist” who claims mental illness does not exist and is backed by The Church of Scientology.
kinda fucked up how society teaches that “it’s not fair” is a whiny and childish emotional response to have. what a good way to gloss over the fact that things need to change until they are fair & that distress is a valid emotional response to injustice
The problem is that “it’s not fair” is often used in a way that is childish and by children and teens who say things like “a curfew? That’s not faaaair”.
But I’m sure 14 year olds think curfew is injustice.
