I’ll listen to you complain about false rape accusations when more than 3 out of every 100 men accused of rape ever spend a single day in jail.

More than 3 out of every 100 men?”

You do realize “More than 3 out of every 100 men” could very well mean “90 out of every 100 men”… right?

I wonder if you just made a typo or you’re actually trying to skew statistics in your favor.

I think you need to re-parse the grammar here, buddy.

I think people forget, men do not just benefit from the oppression of women, they are actively oppressing women. The patriarchy is a social system yes, but individual men do choose to uphold it, they’re not doing it by accident

Why can’t there be a male hooter’s equivalent where male servers are shirtless and highly sexualized for their bodies and looks

Male Strip clubs. You’re thinking of male strip clubs.

No. Not a male strip club. A strip club is a strip club. I want a place called Cahones where waiters wear Speedos and are forced to stuff if they don’t fill out their uniform well enough. I want them to giggle for my tips. I want it to be so normalised and engrained in our culture that women bring their daughters there for lunch (because whaaaaaat the wings are good! Geeze sensitive much?) where they’ll give playful little nudges like, “Wouldn’t mind if you dad had those. Heh heh heh.” that their daughters don’t even understand but will absorb and start to assume is just the normal way grown up women talk about grown up men. I want to playfully ask my waiter if I can have extra nuts on my salad and for him to swat my arm with an Oh, you because he knows if he doesn’t his manager will yell at him. I want other men to pretend to like going there so I think they’re cool. I want to go to Cahones during my lunch break at work and when I come back and tell the other women in the office where I went they chuckle slightly and the men around us suddenly feel self conscious and they don’t know why.

Anonymous asked: do you think it's okay for feminism to use the raised fist? i’ve read that it’s a symbol of left/solidarity causes and that the Smith/Carlos salute at the Olympics was a human rights salute, but i feel like - just from my life experience - it’s been brought to prominence most by black power groups? and supposedly it has longer roots in assyria, socialism, anti-fascism etc, but that feels like when people bring Braveheart into a discussion about white people wearing dreads.

I agree with your last point, even if it has different roots it’s most strongly associated with black power groups and so I’m very, very wary of seeing it used as a feminist symbol.

I’ve seen people use this as an alternative, which makes a nod to the other design without completely copying it. Do others think this is a good option, or is it still inappropriate?
