i have yet to see a feminist/sjw make a decent rebuttal against this argument.
#feminist bullshit #not all men #yes all women #social justice #sjws #stupid sjws #feminism #i will sit here and share horror stories that are only applicable to individual instances of misfortune that demonize a particular group #and when they try to defend themselves #because they dont want to be held accountable for the actions of others #that also fit into their group #i am going to scream and shout and further villainize them #because THATS WHAT ACTIVISM IS #THATS WHAT FEMINISTS DO!!!! #/end moriarty voice
i’m sure someone has already replied to this but wow what a great way to start my day.
#yesallwomen isn’t about being the victim, it’s a response to #notallmen because for SOME reason when women/feminists/anyone states “all men are rapists” “all men are pigs” “all men are trash” all men are like that”, etc. the first thing people responded to are how men are being insulted? you’re more worried that people are talking shit that MIGHT refer to you but you’re not disgusted that there ARE men that rape women? harass women? KILL women? or all of the above to anyone in the LGBT+ community?
are you so self-absorbed that you’re first reaction is to defend men that arent criminals instead of being outraged that there ARE men HURTING WOMEN? because you wouldn’t be alone apparently.
#yesallwomen tells us that there ARE dangers. that men HAVE hurt them, raped them, killed others. it’s proof that the way we objectify women is harmful and sometimes deadly. its about women/lgbt+ people coming together and saying “i was hurt, my friends have been hurt, my family has been hurt, things have to change”
also why are people so desperate to debunk the whole #notallmen bullshit? of course we know that not all men are like that. but what are you going to do about the men that are like that? what will you tell your friends that brag about gangraping a girl at a party? what do you say to your sons that brag about how they harass women on the street? what will you do when another man has hurt you in any way ive stated above?
also also, men that sexually harass women aren’t a small percentage. the whole point of the #yesallwomen tag is to show that people have be sexually harassed or harmed at some point in their life. looks like someone never read it lol
i also reblogged the tags because shit like this makes me severely disappointed.
people seem to think that #yesallwomen and #notallmen is about women vs. men, but its not
its about people that sexually harass and harm others vs people that want to change our society and culture and stop them
im not good at writing essays, but i hope ive changed some minds or at least helped people understand what feminism wants to achieve… i guess..
not all men are rapists, but what are you going to do about the ones that are?
lots of big righteous reblogs today soz (but not)
THANK YOU LIZ i didn’t really know how to express how i felt about this dumbass comic. i saw it earlier, grit my teeth and moved on because i didn’t have the right words.
y’know it’s unfortunate. i’m sure a lot of guys out there are just waiting to understand, and have the ability to understand this argument. but they’re scared that, because they’re a man, that means they’re being pre-judged. “no! i’m not like those guys who hurt and steal and kill! i want to love and be loved!” i felt like that when i first started seeing the #notallmen vs #yesallwomen debates, because i didn’t know what it meant and felt like i was in danger of being stigmatized.
i was also one of those guys who didn’t understand feminism AT ALL and bought into the stereotypes. but i sat and i read and i listened and it made so much sense.
waaay more guys need to realize this shit applies to them. especially cis dudes (i honestly think feminism amongst transmen is alive and well, i’ve seen nothing to the contrary). i don’t have anything to really add to all this, only that i hope good honest men can let go of their insecurities and realize the rest of the world isn’t bearing down on them. nothing else will better help them realize how important erasing gender discrimination is.
also, the hook-line-and-sinker in this comic is SO GOD DAMN STUPID jfc the worst way to “win” an argument is to change the subject

CAN WE DO THESE AT CONS
SECONDED.if youre not autistic or suffer from an actual disorder, dont use these. its not cute.
er… you know a lot of autistic people go to conventions, right? And people with social anxiety disorders and panic disorders? Shit if I could get away with using this at work I would.
Hello there, justsjwthings.
I would like to introduce myself. I refer to myself as Sam Thomas, though my legal name and how a lot of people know me is Matthew. I am officially diagnosed autistic.
Over one week in June 2013 (last summer), I was in Washington, DC for an autism conference called the Autism Campus Inclusion (ACI) summer leadership program run by the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network for autistic college students.
If you have any question as to the truth of this, I would like to direct your attention to this YouTube video that ASAN produced promoting the above-mentioned conference. I appear as the first person in the video and you can find more images of my face on my blog.
At this conference, not only did we use these communication badges pictured above, but we actually had the opportunity to meet Jim Sinclair, the inventor of these badges.
During the part of the conference in which Jim Sinclair gave us a history of Autism Network International (ANI)—which they were a co-founder of—they talked to us about the establishment of this particular piece of assistive technology. Basically, it was a simple idea that seemed to fit a need and quickly became very popular among many autistic spaces for it’s practicality and ease of use.
The conference it originated from is called Autreat and is held annually by ANI. This is an autism conference that accepts Autistics and Cousins (ACs)—that is, anyone diagnosed or otherwise self-identifying with any disorder autistic or similar that may share a number of autistic traits.
There was a need. The need was met. This is how we can safely assume most technology either emerges or becomes popular.
We also talked about something called Universal Design and the Curb-Cutter Effect. The Curb-Cutter Effect is when something to fit a specific need is found to create convenience in a broader area than intended. Curb cuts allowing for wheelchair accessibility to sidewalks proved to also be convenient to anyone who may have trouble with steps or even simply a mother with a baby stroller or maybe a child with a wagon. This is a desirable outcome with disability rights advocacy as creating convenience for non-disabled people often makes the assistive technology easier to advocate for.
In this sense, these colored communication badges could serve that Curb-Cutter effect. Not only would this be perfectly acceptable for non-disabled people to use for convenience, but would also help to increase their effectiveness and convenience for those of us who need them. Here are a few examples:
- Increased popularity makes the colored communication badges more easily recognizable to the general public, making them as effective outside the above-mentioned autism conferences as inside.
- Increase in demand would create increase in supply and availability, likely making these available to pretty much anyone and even being included with, say, the name tags you are required to wear at most cons.
- In addition to these helping people recognize the communication state of the wearer, the wearer will be able to recognize whom they can feel more comfortable to approach.
- Increased popularity would make these badges more acceptable for public use and less alienating to those who would wear them frequently.
This is not something that we are completely incapable of surviving without; this is something that was convenient and made our lives a lot easier. If that can be easily shared with the general public, then what purpose does it serve not to share it?
Thank you for reading.
Today was an exceptional day.
