And if Michael Brown was not angelic, I was practically demonic. I had my first drink when I was 11. I once brawled in the cafeteria after getting hit in the head with a steel trash can. In my junior year I failed five out of seven classes. By the time I graduated from high school, I had been arrested for assaulting a teacher and been kicked out of school (twice.) And yet no one who knew me thought I had the least bit of thug in me. That is because I also read a lot of books, loved my Commodore 64, and ghostwrote love notes for my friends. In other words, I was a human being. A large number of American teenagers live exactly like Michael Brown. Very few of them are shot in the head and left to bake on the pavement.

The “angelic” standard was not one created by the reporter. It was created by a society that cannot face itself, and thus must employ a dubious “morality” to hide its sins. It is reinforced by people who have embraced the notion of “twice as good” while avoiding the circumstances which gave that notion birth. Consider how easily living in a community “with rough patches” becomes part of a list of ostensible sins. Consider how easily “black-on-black crime” becomes not a marker of a shameful legacy of segregation but a moral failing.

Anonymous said: You fucking dumbass, learn to distinguish between a social system that literally shapes our everyday lives and a movement. Patriarchy is not a fucking movement, it's a long established system of males being the main authority figures at the subjugation of women. You are literally benefiting from this economically and socially every fucking day you fucking piece of shit stained toilet paper. "but but but patriarchy doesn't exist" GO THE FUCK OUTSIDE. You need oxygen in your fucking system .

Oh great another one. Yes I benefit from a system where I’m more likely to be the victim of a violent crime than a women. 

More likely to commit suicide.

Have to register for selective services. 

Over four times more likely to be murdered. 

More likely to be homeless. 

Males do worse in education and attend college less often. 

165% More likely to committed than a women.

Receive longer sentences for the same crimes than a women. 

Have a higher chance of being arrested if my girlfriend hits me than she does. 

Have laws where if a woman forced me to have consensual sex, it wouldn’t be rape.

Can be named the father of any kid, even if I never meet the woman.

Less paternal and reproductive rights. 

Had a piece of my dick cut off. 

Have no shelters for abuse. 

And a government that refuses to spend any funding on researching any of these issues. 

But that whole being called bossy and having guys hit on you must really suck.

Men are more likely to be on the end of violent crime from strangers. Women usually know their attackers. According to a 2009 report by the Bereau of Justice, of more than 650,000 violent crime cases analyzed, 551,550 were committed against women. These include rape and sexual assaults, but also theft and mugging. The majority perpetrated by intimate partners.

Women are more likely to attempt suicide or admit to thoughts of suicide. They are also more likely to seek help for those thoughts and work through them as well. Men are more likely to succeed when attempting suicide however and not seek help. This is due to the methods usually chosen. Men are more likely to own and therefore use firearms when taking their own lives. Women are more likely to use pills or other methods of overdose and “non violent” means, giving them a chance to be saved if found fast enough that their stomach can be pumped or otherwise treated. Men are less likely to seek help due to social pressures exerted on them by society that they should be strong, tough, provide for their family and not ask for help. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gender_differences_in_suicide

Selective services are services keeps tabs on potential military conscription. It’s true the vast majority of these are male. That’s not the choice of women however, it’s the ingrained sense of “A man must do his duty to his country”. A sense caused by the idea men must be in charge, the patriarchy, that we are trying to eliminate. I would be perfectly fine if if they wanted to conscript women as well but they don’t, because of the idea that women are inferior on the battlefield.

Men are more likely to be murdered at (76.8%). They are also more likely to be murderers at 90%. HOwever, Females were more likely to be victims of domestic homicides (63.7%) or sexual homicides (81.7%). Males were more likely to be victims of drug or gang related homicide at 90-95%. Some theorize that this is because the majority of women are more passive aggressive than likely to use violence as revenge. Also, this does not take in some ideas of death by self defense.

Studies do show that more individual homeless people are male (67.5) and the single population do make up the majority of homeless people. Homeless women make up the majority of family units. This is again because of much of the social issues faced with masculinity, such as the majority of veterans being men who then have no skills or ability to cope in civilian life, and men being less likely to seek help for mental illness and disorders. It’s also rather damming to look at homelessness as a gender issues. Much of the reasons homelessness happens—poverty, lack of affordable housing, unemployment—affect everyone, especially during the recession, and especially family units. Women are more likely to be put in the situation of trading sexual favors for basic necessities than men, a situation that isn’t good for anyone. http://goodmenproject.com/good-feed-blog/why-are-men-more-likely-to-be-homeless/

Boys are likely to do worse in education due once again to harmful stereotypes of being intellectually inferior than girls. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/educationnews/9862473/Boys-worse-at-school-due-to-stereotypes.html However, this is also a similar stereotype for girls to be “feminine” and so they are turned away from their interests in sciences like math, physics, biology, astrology and more with the thought that it is not “a field for women”. And that any women in science are cold, harsh, etc. Or end up alone. These stereo types then turn girls, and even boys, off of science. http://www.nsf.gov/news/news_summ.jsp?cntn_id=109939 But, more women seek higher education because it’s easier for a man to get a job without one, but for many women who want to make a livable sum it’s often a necessity. So again, it’s the stereotypes of the current system that put both genders in unfavorable circumstances education wise.

The sentencing thing is fucking stupid on the justice system’s part. This isn’t something women choose however, it’s once again ingrained in our society. People who want to change this outdated idea in our society of leniency on women (like Susan B. Anthony who refused not to be thrown in jail when she was brought to trial for voting) are well aware of this and want it to stop.

Same for longer jail times, though really you just have to look at the stand your ground law to see that it’s not always the case. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mary-anne-franks/stand-your-grounds-woman-_b_4886650.html

Story time for this one: My friend (we’ll call her C) was engaged to a man. This man was not a good drunk, but he’d promised not to drink anymore. He broke that promise and had a lot of whiskey one night. When she confronted him verbally he crowded her into a corner and verbally abused her to the point she was terrified and threatened. She tried to push past him but he wouldn’t let her get out of the corner. Out of fear she hit him in the face and then rushed to the bedroom and locked the door. He called the cops. The cops came, she was truthful about what happened and they arrested her for domestic abuse. The fiancee was immediately regretful and tried to take it back and the cops were sorry because they knew my friend had only done that out of fear. What’s my point here? That shit gets turned around very often when police first arrive on the scene. It’s matter of testimony and they can’t work everything out in an hour. And it’s that often criminal cases for women in domestic disputes have little or no evidence and it’s revealed that the situation was not as it appeared.  http://justicewomen.com/tips_dv_victims.html

It’s a stereotype that women are usually the more abused and men are more violent, but it’s often a true stereo type so sometimes police go with what is “logical”. Even so, a study in 2009 showed 3 out of 10 women were arrested in domestic abuse calls while only 1 in 10 of men are arrested

"The research looked at 32 cases where women were the aggressors, 32 where men were in that role, and 32 where it was both partners.

It found that 48% of the cases were related to couples still in a relationship, 27% involved violence after separation and the rest involved couples in the process of splitting up.

Some 83% of men had at least two incidents recorded; one man had 52. In contrast, 62% of women recorded as perpetrators had only one incident recorded, and the highest number of repeat incidents for any woman was eight.

Men were significantly more likely than women to use physical violence, threats and harassment, and to damage the women’s property; women were more likely to damage their own.

Men’s violence tended to create a “context of fear and control”, the researchers said, whereas women were more likely to use verbal abuse or some physical violence.

But women were more likely to use a weapon, although this was often to stop further violence from their partners.

All cases with seven or more incidents, most of which involved men, led to arrest.

But in general, women were three times more likely to be arrested: during the six-year period, men were arrested once in every 10 incidents and women arrested once in every three.”

http://www.theguardian.com/society/2009/aug/28/women-arrested-domestic-violence

Now that’s not to say that domestic violence against men isn’t an issue, it’s a huge issue. But men rarely report it because again the stigma of “manly men” not being hurt by women; and it’s usually not taken seriously for that same reason. So you want to change it? Change that view of men.

…What the fuck is this about? I searched and I don’t know what this means, I see no laws like that anywhere in the USA. Also “FORCED me to have CONSENSUAL sex” is an oxymoron. Consensual means you agreed to have sex. Non-consensual=rape. I know of no laws that abide this for women. Men tend to be reluctant to report sexual assault, especially by women, because of the stigma and the sterotyping of their gender as always wanting/enjoying sex. This is a problem perpetrated by both genders that needs to stop.

What the hell is this about? No, you cannot be named the father of any child even if you never met the woman. A woman can spread the rumor that you are the father of her child, but you can clear that up with a DNA test. Seriously, they cost $400-$2000 (depending on if they are prenatal or after the baby is born) to be done professionally. Or, you can get a home test for less than $30. Document that shit and she can’t bother you anymore. A woman can sue for paternity, but generally then the court requires a paternity test to prove the child is a product of both people and don’t just take her word for it. And you can’t adopt and not realize it.

You can also sue FOR paternal rights, if you want to be in a child’s life. Unless you donated sperm, they usually have you sign a waver of your paternal rights for that with the understanding you won’t see children created from that donated sperm unless the child or parent requests. That’s the donor’s decision when the time comes. You want to talk reproductive rights? There is no goddamn law pertaining to a man’s reproductive system. They are bodily autonomous when it comes to their testicles and penis. How many for women and their uteri? Well, at least 135 of 1100 were passed in 2011 http://www.upworthy.com/guess-how-many-laws-targeting-womens-reproductive-rights-were-introduced-in-2011 I get that a man might want a say in what happens to his unborn child, I do, but generally people in healthy relationships aren’t seeking abortions. It’s generally single women unable to afford to care for a child, young girls who didn’t intend to get pregnant but had little or no sex education, and rape victims who want abortions. And often these lines cross each other. In the cases of rape, I personally feel a man sadistic or unhinged enough to rape a woman has no right to a say in a child he forced upon a woman. And yet, 31 states have laws that allow rapists visitation and even CUSTODY of childrenhttp://www.thewire.com/national/2012/08/31-states-grant-rapists-custody-and-visitation-rights/56118/ Totally can’t see how that could go wrong. Also, I feel that since men are not carrying the child for 9 months, that their say is a little hollow. As for child support, well, if a man has a stable job and is able to he should help with the raising of a child at least monetarily. If not then he should be able to argue against it should the mother be able to raise the child herself on her own salary. As for custody, the majority of divorce proceedings are processed privately where the parents AGREE on who has the major custody of the children. Single mothers who give birth are automatically given full rights because she’s not married and therefore it’s not obvious how much the father even wants to be involved, unless he files for paternity. And it’s important to note that fathers are being awarded custody more today than twenty or even ten years ago http://www.attorneys.com/child-custody/why-do-women-win-most-custody-battles/

Circumcision is an issue to take up with your parents kid. It’s a choice they make and it varies as much as any choice they make like bottle or breastfeeding. My nephew isn’t circumcised, his dad is (that was an awkward conversation). Other times it’s a religious thing, such as with Jewish people. It’s not a gender thing or a society thing. And usually it’s done young enough the boy has no memory of it. Some don’t even know the difference. You want to talk body policy? Look again to the 135 laws based around what women can and can’t do with their own bodies. Further, guys can go get a vasectomy without much fuss. If a woman wants her tubes tied before the age of 40, we are given SOOOO much flack of “you’ll regret it, you’ll want kids one day, what about your husband/boyfriend/etc., what if they want kids, you’ll never have a fulfilled life”, as if we aren’t complete if we aren’t mothers and can’t make this decision ourselves.

And generally, the reason there are more shelters for women is due, once again, to the idea in society that women need to be rescued, while men need to rescue themselves. Some also realize that women may be running from violent situations and don’t want them to feel worried or threatened by men who may be around. Many women’s shelters also extend their care to children who might be fleeing a problem with home as well. These shelters usually included domestic violence victims and homeless women. Shelters were generally only 40-50% funded by the government as well, meaning the rest had to be privately funded. This is usually done by people who know the problem of violence and homelessness wanting to provide a safe place for women. That there are so few for men can be blamed on how little the media or really anyone has brought attention to the problems men face or that no one who survived has helped to start one somewhere. If you want one, advocate for one, don’t sit whining that there’s none out there. Kind of the way women argue for things we want like greater representation, equal pay, and other shit that men have in droves. Be warned though, since 2009 most states have slashed or even taken all funding from shelters, forcing the vast majority to close down. Almost like people stopped caring in general for anyone that needs help, male or female.

So yeah, society sucks for both genders. Men profit from it in some ways, but pay for it in others. The same for women, though our issues tend to stem from our desire to be treated as equal human beings and not inferior or baby factories. We’re also faced with a lot more issues publicly and in our faces which means we become aware of them more quickly and are able to organize over it.  Men feel, due to stereotyping, they have to keep their issues to themselves. This is something we want to stop. But don’t generalize issues like this because often there are similar issues women face. And some of these just don’t make sense, I’m sorry.

I love people who are good at research…

Well then, 

image

Cus the fact man is about to wreck this shit. 

dracophile you come on over here, don’t want you to miss this. 

First point - Well you just forgot about all this. Men are 77% of homicide victims.  Men are significantly more likely to be the victims of violent crime (of which rape is included) than women. Men are the victims of violence more often. But lets look at your first source, which you claim proves women are more likely to be attacked by someone they know. I did find an interesting tidbit in there. 

image

Well look at that, men and women are attacked by people they know at basically the same rate, but men are significantly more likely to be attacked by strangers. And that’s from your own damn source. 

image

Second point. - People who attempt suicide and fail will most likely attempt again, repeatedly. This notion that females are more likely to be suicidal completely ignores that. As well as the fact that fake suicide attempts and reports exist. “Research has constantly shown that the vast majority of suicidal acts fall between the extremes of wholeheartedly seeking death and taking precautions against deathBut it’s pretty fucking hard to fake being dead, and more males die from suicide than females. Over 3 times more,  And please do explain how a social bias that creates a stigma against men seeking help or admitting those thoughts is NOT a male issue? And I’m not so sure feminism is a group I want handling suicide issues considering they do shit like this, Feminists prevent a meeting about male suicide.

image

Next - First of all, no, it’s only males. No females have to register here. All males do, literally every fucking man here does. And the feminist movement is going to fix this huh? You must have never heard of the white feather campaign they did. Women shame men for being cowards or being weak just as much as men do, you want to try and blame the patriarchy for shit feminism itself is guilty of? Fucking really? 

image

Third point, I’m sure that makes those men any less fucking dead. Personally, I don’t really care so much about what demographic my killer would belong to, more concerned with reducing the likelihood. And the fact remains, you have less than a 1/4 chance of being killed than I do. And your self defense bit? You know that also applies to women who are killed too right? 

image

Next point. You realize you just tried to make domestic homicides a gendered issue when the gap for that is less than it is for homelessness right? And did you seriously bring up the fact that women are more likely to turn to sex for cash than men? No fucking shit, because men can’t do that. Believe me, I would love to know I could fall back on fucking fat chicks for cash if times got tough. You also forget to mention how men are far more likely to be homeless due to child support, And how men are more likely to be homeless due to a judicial system that’s biased against them because  women receive lighter sentences and a higher chance of acquittal, simply for being womenUnequal prison sentences.. And hey, remember that time feminists demanded the government refuse to help certain fields that were hit hardest during the depression, just because they were mostly male fields. Feminists don’t want the gov to help unemployed men. And tried to lower the amount of money owed before getting men arrested. 

image

Actually got a decent point in this one, but the fact still remains that the education system has a bias against men. women receive more athletic scholarshipsBoys get worse grades despite better test results. Boys do worse in every facet of education including college enrollment. Elementary schools are biases against boys. You also neglect to mention that boys are EXPECTED to make it on their own. Not that its inherently easier. Obviously the homeless and unemployment rates demonstrate that’s bullshit. 

image

And once again, with the prison sentencing, “women didn’t choose” doesn’t change shit. It still favors women, that’s still a detrimental effect towards men. And you know what? A lot of fucking women did choose that, a lot of fucking feminists choose that. 

Try to shut down female prisons.

Create rape laws that exclude female rapists.

Make it impossible to charge women with rape.

Female felons should serve home sentences.

Told judges to be lenient on women.

As well as the bullshit duluth model and Feminists primary aggressor clause discriminates against males. thanks to feminists gets men arrested even when they’re abused. And their bullshit definition of rape that lets female rapists off the hook.  Here’s are definition Penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim.” Thanks to feminists, the only way a woman can be considered a rapist is if she shoved something up a man’s ass. 

image

And I have a story of my own, there was this kid, lets call him me. Because it was fucking me, who had a dad that was constantly abused by his new wife. And who sometimes dreaded ever going to visit because it was almost a guarantee that I would at least be threatened, most likely hit at least once. And when he finally had the nerve to leave and try to call the cops to get her to stop stalking him, the cops pretty much just laughed in his face. But all this is pointless, because anecdotal evidence doesn’t fucking count. You think you’re the only one who knows of shit like this? So why don’t you take your appeals to emotion, roll em up, turn em sideways, and well I think you know where this is going. 

image

So instead of story time, why don’t we check the facts. 

Women commit domestic violence as often as men

But only men get arrested for it.

Lesbians more likely to be abusive than gays.

More studies showing women are just as violent.

Feminists cover up female domestic abuse stats.

Video about male domestic abuse.

Female violence mirror

Police threaten almost half of all men who say they are abused. 

Men are 3 times as likely to be arrested than the woman, when the man is the one reporting being abused. 

Many more studies.

Woman smashing bottle in mans face in public. Nobody gives a fuck.

Jezebel mocks men who are abused.

Feminists make sure the gov doesn’t spend money on male shelters or male research.

Female on male abuse in public is at best ignored, and at worst celebrated.

Public stops a man from abusing a woman in public, same crowd laughs when the roles are reversed. 

Hot lines refuse to help men.

Founder of Canadas only male shelter for abuse forced to close due to lack of funding before committing suicide. 

Study shows women more likely to be controlling. 

Female abusers ignored

And your source saying women are 3 times as likely to be arrested?? I found the problem. “ looked at 96 examples from 692 “perpetrator profiles” tracked from 2001 to 2007.”

 image

Next point - That was a fucking typo, should be obvious in context. But this has already addressed, but in case you forgot. Our definition of rape in this country is not “non consensual sex.”

Next. - Did you read what you just said? You claimed women can’t name any man the father, then said they could. We just have to get a DNA test. Burden of fucking proof bitch, if someone is saying im the father of her kid, that’s a claim. She needs to provide the proof. She needs to show up with the test, she needs to front the cash for it. 

image

You want to talk reproductive and paternal rights? 

Feminists against equal custody.

Males who were raped as a child still have to pay child support.

Women should have the right to put a child up for adoption before the father gets custody.

Inequalities in child support and custody.

Mothers get custody 84% of the time. 

Paternity fraud is rampant

So please fucking tell me there is no issue men face when victims of rape have to pay child support, when men are forced to pay for kids that aren’t theirs, when mothers put their kids up for adoption and the father has no say. And for abortion, let me explain to you how responsibility works. If its your decision, its your responsibility. If a man has no say in whether or not to keep the kid, he has no responsibility to pay for it. Either its a join effort, or a woman’s choice and thus her responsibility. 

image

And circumcision isn’t a gender or social issue? Are you fucking kidding me you cunt? That is the biggest fucking cop out I’ve seen yet. All forms of female genital mutilation are illegal, when there are forms that have equal religious significance and cause less bodily harm. And the fact that we as a society deemed circumcision acceptable despite all this shit, Circumcisions kills. Circumcision decreases sexual pleasureCircumcision policy is influenced by psychosocial factors rather than alleged health benefitsCircumcision linked to pain, trauma, and psychosexual sequelaeCircumcision may lead to abnormal brain development and subsequent deviations in behaviorCircumcision decreases penile sensitivityCircumcision associated with sexual difficultiesThe exaggeration of the benefits of circumcision in regards to HIV/AIDS transmissionCircumcision/HIV claims are based on insufficient evidenceThere is no case for the widespread implementation of circumcision as a preventative measure to stop transmission of AIDS/HIV Is a fucking social issue. Males rights to body autonomy are revoked in infancy, females are not. Fucking gender and social issue.

image

Hey, do you know how much funding the government gives to male shelters? Big old fat fucking 0. A lot less than your 40%. Know what happens when people advocate for shit like that? 

Feminists cover up female domestic abuse stats.

Jezebel mocks men who are abused.

Feminists make sure the gov doesn’t spend money on male shelters or male research.

No funding for male shelter. 

Founder of Canadas only male shelter for abuse forced to close due to lack of funding before committing suicide. 

Feminists threaten to kill woman for saying men need abuse shelters.

Feminists shut down forum for battered husbands.

Feminists blame males for their abuse.

Feminists say men can’t talk about domestic abuse.

Feminists slander the MRM

Again, 

And again, 

Call them terrorists.

So its pretty fucking hard to get this things up when feminism is literally pulling out all the stops to make sure people don’t, the government offers 0 fucking help. Anyone says men need shelters are attacked, feminists falsify information to down play how significant an issue it is, and society as a whole just doesn’t give a fuck about men being attacked. 

Female on male abuse in public is at best ignored, and at worst celebrated.

Public stops a man from abusing a woman in public, same crowd laughs when the roles are reversed. 

Woman smashing bottle in mans face in public. Nobody gives a fuck.

Feminists mock a man who has his dick cut off.

You want equality? Give up your 40%. 

image

This is about 10 steps down from fucking pathetic, your issues arise from you playing yourselves as the victims of fucking everything. Even shit that hurts men, as you just demonstrated in this about 8 times. And did you even fucking read the ask you cunt? People are saying males face no problems, I’m saying both sides get fucked. And you’re trying to paint me as some MRA trying to claim women face no issues, fuck right the hell off with your strawmen.
