Alright, listen up, men’s rights people. आप say आप want to improve the lives of all men, to protect their rights. Well, I have a challenge for you: Can आप stand up for the male individuals who act feminine?

It’s no secret that men who दिखाना signs of anything associated with femininity are looked down upon. Effeminate men are made the butt of jokes all the time in the media and in real life. Just tonight I watched Date Night, where the male lead is described as androgynous and hilarity ensues as he is forced to agree with that. और than jokes, such men and boys are frequently the victims...

Chauvinism and Masculinism, two of the biggest anti-feminism "movements" alive and rampant in this दिन and age. Since the beginning of these movements, the Feminist image has been violated to the point that even hearing the word "Feminist" brings up some ugly descriptions in the human psyche: fat, unattractive, masculine women who can't find a decent husband that want to create misery for all like they feel द्वारा lying about what women really want (like शिशु and husbands) and emasculating men, या a big system of corporate tools brainwashed द्वारा powerful liberals to decimate the human race,

Here are some women empowerment कोट्स that I like:

Women sleep on the right side of the बिस्तर because even while sleeping they have to be right! ~Author unknown

I'm an excellent housekeeper. Everytime I get a divorce, I keep the house. ~Zsa Zsa Gabor

In this world आप have to be stronger than a man, आप have to be a wo-man! ~AVPM

Anything men can do, women can do better, plus in heels.

Men, their rights, and nothing more; women, their rights, and nothing less. ~Susan B. Anthony

History is herstory, too. ~Author unknown

I'd much rather be a woman than a man. Women can cry, they can wear cute clothes, and they are the first to be rescued off of sinking ships.

Man has will, but woman has her way.

Women get the last word in every argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Women are scientifically proven to be right even when they are wrong.

A lot of आप have probably witnessed the video for Katy Perry's part of me in which she discovers her boyfriend cheating, does a Britney and joins the armed forces in a bid to get over her turmoil and shoot little अफ़ग़ान, अफगान children in the face.

At first sights, this is a immaculate example of feminism in the works: A young, pretty girl finds the strength to defy her boyfriend's infidelities and find her own way in life without him. It's hard imagining Perry doing anything apart from mess around with wigs and giggle...

Preface:
I have read all पुस्तकें and seen the movies.
Most importantly, the fact that it’s कल्पना doesn’t excuse the themes and messages in the book. Fiction is merely a vehicle humans developed to communicate important lessons, values and philosophies. I am not claiming any of the implications I discuss were intentional on SMeyer’s part. Whether या not the लेखक या readers are aware of it, though, the Twilight series communicates dangerous messages...

Now i'm what I would like to call an average guy. I also like to think that I'm open minded and willing to hear any argument as long as that argument is backed up with cold hard facts.
Now as a guy i personally don't have any experience of any of the issues normally expressed द्वारा the feminist movement so my thoughts and opinions are always formed from सेकंड hand या third hand experience (reading articles, watching YouTube वीडियो etc.)
Now i'm sure some of आप are asking yourself why are आप asking this? Well the answer is as follows.
Two week पूर्व i was taking part in a community discussion at...

There’s a meme I’ve seen online where feminists say that the word “females” shouldn’t be used because of its dehumanizing connotations. The idea is that “female” relates to the sex of a biological organism, and when one is using that kind of terminology they tend to be discussing nonhuman जानवर in a scientific fashion. So, when men talk about “females” when they mean “women”, it comes off as dehumanizing. While I agree to an extent, as I believe some men do use this to purposefully distance themselves from women, I also think this decree that female humans should be...

Despair Hits My दिल - Rebecca Mott
link

I have been coming back into life – I know this is good. But this post is about my confusion, my grief and my despair that I still do not understand what it is to be alive – beyond being a role.

I will write in the back parts of my mind, I will try to drag out the stuff that scares me, that blocks me, that still make wonder if I am still nothing but an object finding how to please others.

I don’t know how to be human, that it not some philosophical...

I didn't know what to make of this book. The pomes are there because someone in the story is repeating them giving the narrative a disjointed feel, and of course there's the "It was all a dream" ending is as soul crushing as it is for any कल्पना story. But it made me think. Alice doesn't DO much, the main focus is on her intellectual ability, and when she does hold the baby/pig is in her dream. Alice does appear to have a disability, I have Cerebral Palsy, and I spend time दिवास्वप्न about doing stuff abled-bodied people are able to do. and am very smart. Lewis Corral didn't have the opportunity to think about his story this way, and if आप didn't you're NOT a horrible person, आप just made the same assumption I made when I saw the (incomplete) डिज़्नी version when I was a kid. The paradox is she has physical abilities, but we don't KNOW if Alice REALLY has them because she's dreaming for all but 2 and 1/2 pages. It gives the ending meaning, anyway.

“I would like to get rid of the homophobes, sexists, and racists in our audience. I know they're out there and it really bothers me.” ― Kurt Cobain


Kurt Cobain- The Feminist

by Kat Broderick

The late Kurt Cobain was surprisingly, an avid member of the feminist community. Here are some of his लिंक्स to activism and his ties to the feminist agenda.

If generation X had a king it would be Kurt Cobain. His devil may care attitude arguably defined a generation of people. His haunting melodies and desperate screams spoke to youth disenchanted with societies’ expectations. He cared about a...

"I’ve been having an argument for days with this guy on आइ एम डी बी about promiscuous people not asking for rape (on the cape fear page) and he’s like कहा some pretty ridiculous sh*t…here are some examples:

“Looks like आप dig into a lot of feminist website to empower yourself.”

“Hence I don’t agree with the whole martial rape. The newest law in Afghanistan that obliges women to give their husbands sex at least 4 times a week. I would say that is a progressive law.”

Have आप ever been offended द्वारा those stereotypes? Well, I get offended pretty easily द्वारा the gender stereotypes. Whenever I get offended I would complain and stop watching या playing the game altogether. Nearly all फिल्में and tv shows and even the video games are made द्वारा sexist men who think that women are not as capable as women! Let's look at one example, the movie Gremlins. It may be funny, but can be sexist. I hate that movie. It portrays women as weak, cowardly, helpless, and over FUCKING dependent! And males as too overprotective and muscly and too fucking irresistable! Gosh, I hate when...

'Feminazi' is the demonization of feminism via comparing the woman's rights movement to Adolf Hitler.

Needless to say, it is the most incompetent and insensitive terminology refering to:

A. The victims who suffered tremendously under Hitler's regime during WW2.
B. Feminism and how misunderstood it's many messages are today in modern society.

So even if आप aren't a feminist, या maybe even not even pro-feminist (which i can assure आप are completely different things), आप most definately shouldn't tolerate this fad. Here are four, quick, clear reasons simply to start आप off. I could go on for...

Nicole Kidman: We Must Support Women

Nicole Kidman has been “brought to her knees” द्वारा tales of abuse from some women.

The actress is a UN Goodwill Ambassador who has done a lot of work with females. She is determined to do all she can to help victims of abuse.

“I’ve been to Haiti and Kosovo and to shelters all over the world. The things I’ve seen and the stories I’ve heard just bring me to my knees,” she told the February edition of UK magazine InStyle. “We are working to pass new laws and to make it OK for women to step आगे and speak about abuses, knowing they will have...

Not too long ago, I’ve been exploring the recesses of the Internet for some discussion based on Feminism-from websites dedicated to only the talk of Feminism to YouTube वीडियो and their comments, knowing fully well that many of the things I will view will be made द्वारा anti-Feminists. My expectations were only half-disappointed. I did expect the usual “Feminists are the most sexist, misandrist, selfish manginas and लेज़्बीयन of the planet,” but I didn’t expect this: “black women shouldn’t have involved themselves in the white woman’s evil movement.”

“Wherever there is a human being, I see God-given rights inherent in that being, whatever may be the sex या complexion” -- William Lloyd Garrison

"Nothing can be और absurd than the practice that prevails in our country of men and women not following the same pursuits with all their strengths and with one mind, for thus, the state instead of being whole is reduced to half."
--Plato

"[A] woman should have every honorable motive to exertion which is enjoyed द्वारा man, to the full extent of her capacities and endowments. The case is too plain for argument. Nature has दिया woman the same powers,...

I read a lot of stuff online talking about the “tone argument” and how it’s used to silence feminists. The gist of it is that a feminist is angry about something and delivers a criticism of it, and the opposition points to the way the feminist is angry as a means of shutting them down without ever acknowledging the criticism as valid या that the person has a right to be angry. This is a problem, and I have seen it occur in threads, so the anti-tone-argument sentiment has a respectable basis. However, I believe the sentiment is often misused so that it ends up causing the same sort of...

Something I’ve noticed on TV is a plot sometimes used where there’s a lesser-privileged (i.e. female या black) character अभिनय irrational, and the audience is sympathetic to the more-privileged (i.e. male या white) character who points out all the flaws in the less-privileged character’s rationale, only to have the plot twist where the less-privileged character turns out to have actually been right! The revelation doesn’t lead to और respect for the less-privileged character, however, because they are still portrayed as irrational. It’s और like ‘hey, isn’t weird how they turned...
