So today Angelina Jolie had double mastectomy, which is the removal of one’s breasts, to prevent Breast cancer. So instead of praising Angelina on her bravery, men on Twitter decided to ridicule her, even calling her stupid for removing her breasts. For those of you on Tumblr that are attacking Feminists about being delusional about sexism against women and misogyny here’s your fucking proof that sexism and misogyny exists.
Even fucking sadder is that they didn’t even fucking listen to the statements she released- she said publicly that she was undergoing reconstructive surgery at the same time as her mastectomy, and was happy that the results would pretty much look “natural.” She did what was best for her body, her health, and probably her family, too, but all that anyone heard was that she was “cutting off her tits.”
It’s shit like this that makes me wish testicular cancer was more prevalent. And deadly. Maybe then these fuckers would understand the risks a bit more.
Fuck everyone who gives this woman shit for doing such a brave thing.
Disgusted with everything today.
(manboobz.com) - And so the MRAs have found yet another woman to hate.
Earlier this month, as many of you no doubt know, a Men’s Rights group sponsored a lecture at the University of Toronto. The event drew protesters, and the protesters drew MRAs with video cameras. One of the MRAs filmed a confrontation between a red-haired feminist activist and a number of MRAs who continually interrupted her as she tried to read a brief statement.
Her crime? She wasn’t exactly polite in responding to the interrupters. And so, after video of the confrontation was uploaded to YouTube, and linked to on the Men’s Rights subreddit and elsewhere, she became a virtual punching bag for the angry misogynists of the internet.
A Voice for Men, naturally, led the charge, running an article by Canadian MRA Dan Perrins labeling her “Little red frothing fornication mouth” and commenting on her breasts. The Amazing Atheist weighed in with a video I couldn’t bring myself to even watch.
Since being targeted by angry YouTube misogynists and MRAs, the red-haired activist has received death threats, rape threats and literally hundreds of other hateful and harassing messages. She’s also been “doxxed” — that is, she’s had her personal information plastered all over the internet, including on A Voice for Men’s forum. Ten days after being uploaded to YouTube, the video of her faceoff against the MRAs has garnered more than 300,000 views, and YouTubers are still leaving threats and insults and crude sexual comments.
This, apparently, is what “Men’s Human Rights Activism” consists of: the doxxing and harassment of individual women.
There are screen caps of several of the messages she has been receiving under the read more link.
Be warned, several of them are very triggering. This kind of thing needs to see the light of day, though, as MRAs like to pretend that this doesn’t happen.
THIS NEEDS MORE FUCKING NOTES
71-year-old taken to the ground for questioning Paul Ryan
Ryan: “Most of our debt in the future comes from our entitlement programs.”
Senior citizen: “Hey. I paid into that for 50 years, my unemployment and my Social Security and my Medicare, and now you’re gonna…” At this point you hear the police who are dragging him out shouting, “on the ground, on the ground”.
Ryan then jokes, “I hope he’s taken his blood-pressure medication!” and laughs.
A real man of the people.
That was horrible to watch. That poor man. I mean, I get that it’s not really okay to start shouting, but they made him get on the ground and handcuffed him? HE IS SEVENTY-ONE! And then that FUCKWAD Paul Ryan has the fucking nerve to make that kind of a joke? Holy shit I need to punch something.
If you’re calling about gay rights… (by GLBTQcommunity)
Kid calls the Westboro Baptist Church, got an automated menu. Pressed 6 for Gay Rights, and this is the message:
If you are calling about gay rights, yikes. You are heading straight to hell. God hates fags. God hates fag enablers. Therefore, God hates YOU. You cannot change that standard of God. It doesnt matter if you can get this entire goofy disobedient nation to agree with you! It doesnt matter how many gay pride parades you hold! GOD HATES FAGS. Therefore, at this hour, the destruction of this land is all around you. When you have turned the country over to the fags, youre all shortly coming home in body bags. The lord is coming; America is doomed! Your only hope is to put away your idols, put away your false gods, and put away your filthy manner of life. Get a bible! Read the words and BEEP
This group is absolutely disgusting. The only silver lining to this is that 99% of Christians I know, including my family and friends, are not these people. I’m not defending those who believe homosexuality is a sin because of their religious beliefs. I’m simply grateful that in a world that is predominately religious, I don’t have to attempt be civil to assholes like those over at Westboro Baptist.
In Sacramento, a county judge has taken “victim-blaming” to a whole new level, ordering that a rape victim be jailedwhile awaiting the trial of her rapist.
The 17-year-old had failed to appear for two previous court dates to testify against Frank William Rackley, 37, who is accused of abducting and raping her and is believed to be a serial rapist. Judge Lawrence Brown claimed to be “terribly sorry” about the position the young woman is in, but his sympathy didn’t stop him from ordering that she remain in a juvenile detention center until April 23, Rackley’s next trial date.
Rape trials are notoriously traumatic for victims; frequently, the attempts to discredit a rape victim’s credibility and character leads her to feel that she is actually the one on trial. Victims’ fear of further violations they will receive at the hands of the justice system—from inappropriate and irrelevant questions about their sexual histories to accusations that they are simply lying—is undoubtedly one of the many reasons why rape is already one of the most underreported crimes, with only 46 percent reported to police and only a small fraction of those ultimately going to trial. And it is highly likely that fear is precisely what prevented this young victim from showing up for two previous court dates. But rather than striving to create an environment in which she could testify comfortably and safely, Judge Brown decided to take punitive action against her instead.
An effective way to make women to continue afraid to report rape and testify against their abusers.
Sickening. Of course I posted the article on facebook but, as usual, no one gave a damn. Sigh.
When a girl tells you if you were the last man on earth she wouldn’t have sex with you, whisper: “Who would stop me?”. It shuts her up fast.
If a man ever says that to you, ladies, look him dead in the eyes and say, “I would.” If you have a blade, a personal tazer, or any other purchased or self fashioned weapon, now would be the time to lay it on the table. It shuts misogynists up fast.
This..oh my god.. I nearly puked in my mouth when I read the OP. Especially that little word ‘whisper’. FUCKING NO. Get the fuck off this planet, you rape-endorsing fuck-knuckle.
Also, I love stfusexists’ response (as always). ^.^
Aaron Gouveia and his wife were already having the worst day of their lives. Then came the abortion protesters. [Source] “You’re killing your unborn baby!” That’s what they yelled at me and my wife on the worst day of our lives. As we entered the women’s health center on an otherwise perfect summer morning in Brookline, two women we had never met decided to pile onto the nightmare we had been living for three weeks. These “Christians” verbally accosted us—judged us—as we steeled ourselves for the horror of making the unimaginable, but necessary, decision to end our pregnancy at 16 weeks. After extensive testing at a renowned Boston hospital three weeks earlier, we were told our baby had Sirenomelia. Otherwise known as Mermaid Syndrome, it’s a rare (one in every 100,000 pregnancies) congenital deformity in which the legs are fused together. Worse than that, our baby had no bladder or kidneys. Our doctors told us there was zero chance for survival. I’m not a religious person and I’ve never believed in heaven or hell. But there is a hell on Earth. Hell is sitting next to the person you love most and listening to her wail hysterically because her heart just broke into a million pieces. Hell is watching her entire body convulse with sobs because she’s being tortured with grief. For as long as I live and no matter how many children we have, I will never forget that sound. And I vowed to do everything in my power to make sure she’d never make it again. Across a crowded street, two people with “God Is Pro-Life!” signs and pictures of torn-up fetuses managed to drive the blade in even deeper. Again, I was left trying to console the inconsolable, feeling even more helpless this time, because I wasn’t allowed into surgery with her. Running on pure adrenaline, and without even a hint of a plan, I grabbed my cell phone and crossed the street. I didn’t know what to say or how to say it, I just knew I wanted to make public the cowardice of these protesters. The video’s below—they didn’t disappoint. I learned a few important things from this encounter. First, these people aren’t used to being confronted. They prey on the weak and they pounce on the wounded. It’s easy to berate people and shame them when they’re too beaten down to fight back. But I chose to do just that, and you can see what happened. They spout the same tired rhetoric passed out at rallies and subway stations. They don’t have one salient response to any of my questions. The most telling thing about their cowardice is when the woman on the right gets upset that I’m recording the conversation (which is perfectly legal) and then threatens to call the police. The irony is rich. She wanted to call the police because I was peacefully expressing my opinion on a public sidewalk and exercising my First Amendment rights, which is exactly what she was doing. But I’m not on “God’s side,” am I. She also claims the women at the clinic are suicide risks. Even if she believed that were true, does she really think yelling at them and shaming them in public is going to encourage these women not to kill themselves? After I took a walk and calmed down, it was time to pick up my wife and go home. When we pulled out of the clinic, the protesters were gone, and a police cruiser was parked nearby with the lights flashing. My wife, still groggy from the surgery, managed to crack a little smile, and asked, “What did you do?” I have no idea if it was my interaction with the protesters that got them to leave. I doubt it was, but my wife was convinced that was the case. At first, I didn’t think of it as a big deal, and I actually felt a little foolish for getting so heated. My wife, suddenly serious, pointed out a women entering the clinic. Within minutes, she said, that woman would be making a serious choice. Whether she kept her baby or not, it didn’t matter—what matters is that she can make the decision that’s right for her. And she can make it without people screaming at her. My wife and I wanted our second child. We loved her. We even had a name for her, Alexandra. You never know the circumstances surrounding this kind of decision. Consider this my plea: stop terrorizing women. Stop adding trauma to their trauma. If you’re able, stand up to these bullies in nonviolent ways. Speak out. And if you have a camera, use it. —Aaron Gouveia is a regular contributor to The Good Men Project Magazine.
Incredibly powerful story.
Never have I ever seen something this disgusting. How can someone say such things to another human being? This is wrong. Absolutely disgusting and wrong.
This little girl was FIGHTING FOR HER LIFE. She had to live with the fact that she would die sooner than most. This beautiful little child has more heart than anyone. She got to meet her hero, and I thank Selena Gomez everyday for fulfilling Hana’s wishes. <3 This little girl is so brave, strong, beautiful and loving. She was always always smiling, no matter what. She had to live with this disease, but it never brought her down. Selena was her hero, well now Hana is my hero.
Anyone who is this disgusting.. Who has the nerve to say such horrible things about a little child… I have no words for you. I cannot even express how upset and angry I am. This is not okay. It is not.
Please spread the word. People need to know that it is NOT okay to say disgusting things. People need to know who Hana was and that she deserved a beautiful life. <3
RIP HANA HWANG. <3
I’m not a fan of celebrities so at first I thought it was very sweet of her to visit this sweet sick kid. I wish I had not read the comments made about Hana Hwang, the 13 year old Progeria patient in the images above. You know me and my need to fact check something this horrible. Unfortunately those comments, and many more were made on the actual YouTube video. Is it wrong to strongly dislike members of my own species for their heartlessness? ~ Kim
Some [not all] “Atheists” that I know celebrate Christmas and are very strict in their beliefs, that of which I have no problem with.
But if you don’t believe in Christ or what he did for us, why do you celebrate a holiday meant for Christians? If you’re a serious Atheist (again, no problems) tell your family. Don’t say “Oh, I don’t want them to feel bad.” You should feel bad for making them buy you gifts you don’t deserve.
lmao you’re a fucking moron
The tree and the gift-giving are pre-Christian traditions. I don’t go to church on Christmas and don’t do any religious shit to praise your jeebus, but I am still allowed to have a goddamn holiday season and get gifts I DO deserve just like anyone else. Christmas gifts aren’t a Christian right, you absolute fuckwit.
btw you don’t actually know if it’s Jesus’ birthday. this isn’t a confirmed date.
I’M AN ATHEIST I AM A HORRIBLE PERSON I DON’T DESERVE PRESENTS
IF YOU’RE AN ATHEIST FUCK YOU ASSHOLES RETURN YOUR GIFTS YOU STUPID TWATS YOU DON’T DESERVE THEM
There’s so much I could say about this, but I’ll just say this: I think it’s sad that there are people in this world with so much xenophobia and bigotry and hate and ignorance. I feel sad for them, I really do.
Re-blogging for Frank. It still makes me sick to watch this. ~ Kim
Unlike many here on tumblr I’m exactly the same person I am off my blog as I am on. I post things from my blog on facebook because everyone knows I’m an atheist. I posted this video on facebook with the question: Who are the people buying this book, and why would you do something this evil to anyone, not to mention a child? My old church was big on home-schooling and many of my friends home-school their kids. One of them after viewing this just unfriended me and sent me this message: “What these people did was criminal, however it is wrong for you to judge those of us who want to raise up our children with biblical values because you no longer believe in God. K I’m really sorry to see how far you’re willing to go to defend your beliefs. And to answer your question, I am the kind of person that buys this book.” I’m just going to let this one go for now. Monday when I can formulate a non-hostile response I’ll let her know how beating a child with plumbing pipes is abuse and I’d gladly testify against her ass if anything happens to her kids. ~ Kim
Beaten to death for Jesus?
I am thoroughly enraged. You must watch this entire video. I remember saying that this book was pure evil and advocated child abuse and murder before. But this is too much. And don’t lose sight of the fact that this is a BEST SELLING book. Christian family values using biblical teaching my ass. This is child abuse at it’s worse. Abusing and killing your children in the name of, or per the teaching of your God makes you amongst the lowest of our species. Yeah, I’m really pissed off about this. ~ Kim
