Today I was going to pick up my friend, who is 16, (I had my grandmother with me, I might add) from the Boys and Girls club. When I got there and asked where she was, they said she wasn't there. Then I went back to my car, and was about to drive off when three people came out of the building and motioned for me to stop. I spent the next 30-45 minutes being lectured by three people on how I'm a ********* because she lied and said her mother was ok with me picking her up (turns out she wasn't), and because I'm three years older than she is. They actually told me that I was probably picking her up (again, with my GRANDMOTHER right next to me) because she was only 16 and didn't know how to say no.

how to deal with a feminist
User avatar #382 - iputsomeusername (06/21/2013) [-]
Has anyone seen 'Jagten', the danish film (The Hunt in english)? Oh, Denmark is a ********* place that no one cares about; especially our stupid movies? Fine, ok, but y'all should really watch it. It's about a man, who works in a child daycare institute, who gets falsely accused of pedophilia. It's a really powerful film that really shows society's hysteria on the subject and how it can ruin lives....

I remember when I was a lot younger, this little girl (my age back then) punched me, because I was playing with a toy she wanted. I punched her back, because that's the logical thing to do when you're in pre-school. Some bitch teacher saw, and I **** YOU NOT, I was the only one who got in trouble. After I got a "time-out", the girl who punched me earlier came up to me and said that she was sorry for getting me in trouble. Teacher bitch was still there and told her that she didn't need to apologize because boys shouldn't hit girls. She basically told the teacher to (in much nicer words of course) **** off, and mind her own business. We became pretty good friends for a few years, but then I had to move and we lost contact with each other. Now, whenever I think of feminism, I think of her, and how she didn't want special treatment, and only wanted for us to be equal. No gender bias, no "we're better than you" attitude, just innocent, childish equality.

I need feminism because I like to make jokes about it.

Or perhaps you just need to change the internet so people think different, hmm?
Got a step brother that actually believes that all muslims are terrorists and female people belong in the kitchen because the only thing he does is sit infront of the pc. Same goes for feminists, mostly stupid people spend their time on fb and such. You dont need anyone to fight for you, you need to fight for yourself.
User avatar #364 - grocer (06/21/2013) [-]
I think we need a white/male/english speaking movement. But that would be viewed as racist. Even though in my experience, anyone who isn't white/male/english is automatically sent to the top for opportunities.
#365 to #364 - broorb (06/21/2013) [-]
and I think you're talking out of your arse
I know a black guy, lovely bloke, who gets called a ****** about once every few days, and gets spat at about once a month, just for being black
I know women who're harassed daily
I know muslims who get yelled at in the street because of things they didn't do nor did they support

But I do not know one
single
white
english
man
who has ever been inconvenienced, insulted, or descriminated
for being a white, english male.

Piss off, mate. We could do without you EDL prats.
User avatar #368 to #365 - grocer (06/21/2013) [-]
Obviously you come from a **** area. Where I come from, I know blacks, muslims, asians, polish, russians etc.

I have asked an Indian mate if he has ever been discriminated against. He said nope, he said he has never been rejected after an interview.

I asked a black mate if he has ever been discriminated against. He said he reckons people are more friendly to him than other white people.

I know several employers who only hire women as they are sometimes viewed as more trustworthy. Also in bar work, it is around 90% female where I live.

Only discrimination I ever hear about is gay people being bullied around here.

If any of that happened where I live, **** would kick off. I just want everyone to say **** political correctness. Everyone should just ignore the colour of peoples skin and their religions. Don't ask and don't tell.
#371 to #368 - broorb (06/21/2013) [-]
Yeah. There you go. That's more like it. Creating a white/english/male speaking movement is not going to answer our problems, surely can see the illogicality in that.
User avatar #372 to #371 - grocer (06/21/2013) [-]
I was half joking when I said it.

People around here would agree that it is going further than equality. In my job, managers are afraid to sack a guy who isn't English even though he is incompetent, complains all the time, and causes arguments with all staff.

There is a kid I work with who has very mild learning difficulties. Although he basically comes across as an ******* to anyone and everyone. He lies constantly, complains, and barely does any work. They will not sack him as they are scared of the repercussions.
#388 to #372 - harleyzone (06/21/2013) [-]
I've had one teacher flat out tell me that I can climb so much higher on the ladder in life because I'm white and male. I had one thing to tell her: you may think that I can get higher on the ladder, but who's going to catch me if I fall? you have women's support groups, there's a group that will jump in and support every ethnicity, sexual preference, whatever. There's nobody there waiting to catch me or help me out when I'm down, and the only group that specifically supports white people is not exactly one that I would ever want to be affiliated with.

the people that really need that protection are usually in an area where they can't get it, and the people who get support from groups for something usually abuse it.
that teacher though her employer was sexist because a male teacher hired at the same time as her made more than her initially. The real difference: he haggled and asked for higher pay, she took what she was offered as she didn't want to chance asking for more. I asked both, she never would accept that...

aah get over it, mate. I'd rather be white and without learning disabilities regardless of societal prospects purely because I don't think I could handle the amount of racism in first world countries. sounds like you live in a particularly racially adapted area, and there ain't many of those about.

what, would you rather have learning disabilities and live where you live now your entire life?
#389 to #385 - harleyzone (06/21/2013) [-]
the fact is though, that system is there to help poeple who have to deal with real bigotry in their life, and to see some little **** who's never seen real racism to sit there and abuse it really pisses you off, it's like watching a guy take his ebt cash to a casino.
ebt does help people, but that ********* abusing the system and ruining it for everyone.

if the guy's an ******* , fire him like you would anybody, give the job to some parent who's going to use the money to feed his family and who will appreciate the job.
User avatar #396 to #389 - grocer (06/21/2013) [-]
See, this I disagree with as well. My employer gives people with kids priority for when they want to go on holiday.

So they get priority during Easter holidays, summer holidays etc. Even though as I am in full time education, these are also the only holidays that I can have off.

Why should someone who has had kids get priority?
#398 to #396 - harleyzone (06/22/2013) [-]
Honestly,
I agree that above all it should be on a first come first serve basis, or something like who's worked the most hours recently, or the "worst" hours depending on the job, something like that,
but I can also say that when I was a kid it was really cool when my parents could get the day off and spend more time with my brother and me. and I imagine that if I were married with kids that I'd really appreciate having that priority to spend the holidays with my kids.
so I'm kinda torn.
and I'm looking for work right now, IE I have no job, so I can't really talk
#390 to #389 - broorb (06/21/2013) [-]
yeah, that is fair enough, I'm not arguing against that. equal rights means equal, after all. but I still think you're seeing more unfairness in your situation than is necessary; you being a white bloke, you'll be fine anywhere (pretty much) whereas that one guy is gonna get tirades of ***** in most other places. I druther have your freedom than his cul-de-sac
#391 to #390 - harleyzone (06/21/2013) [-]
the thing is, up here there's a lot of equality with race,
it's these groups that make everything into a racist situation *cough* *NAACP* *cough* that keep a lot of racism going. a lot of things are fine until you bring race into it.
I agree, It's nice being tall, white, and a man.
in the deep south that practically makes you immortal
but I'm in the north, like, practically a long swim from canada, and the white thing isn't that big a deal, like I said, if anything, when my being white is recognized, it's for somebody to tell me how great I must have it being white, or how much better I must have it because I'm a man.
I don't, if a black guy more qualified than me applies to the same job, I lose out, same if a more qualified woman does. part of the reason I can't get a job. a lot of more qualified people are willing to take smaller jobs now.
race and gender really do nothing for you, except unless you're trying to be a bikini barrista or something i guess, then it would probably help to be a woman...

Most women just don't understand that men seeing them as an 'equal' doesn't come out of itself, it's up to them.
I'm a woman and my friends are mostly men and because i'm not acting like a whiny bitch all the time, they don't even see me as 'the girl' anymore i guess.
Posting angry things about men on facebook , claiming you're a feminist while you're just some feminazi or trying too hard to fit in by being the cool and aggressive bitch isn't going to help.

I have a friend a lot like you. She was a loner when I first met her, and because her name was chinese and sounded weird I was one of the first people to learn her name. At that point she had only just moved from canada to america so she had no friends. Now she has a large group of friends (almost entirely guys) and, unlike most girls I know, she was very comfortable around guys and preferred their company.
User avatar #343 to #340 - eatinaintcheatin (06/21/2013) [-]
Yes, i have ONE female friend who is like me and the girl you've described.
It's pretty rare...
It confuses me so much that most women don't seem to know how they need to act around men.
When a girl comes into my group of friends they either start to flirt with all of them, try to be the tough bitch or they're being too girly for attenion.
They need to calm down and stop being such attention seekers.
The only time you actually need to act like a real woman is when one of you're male friends got hurt, have questions about women or got into a fight with other women so you can slip in so they don't have to deal with the "i can't hit a woman" problem.

That seems to make a pretty big deal about men being a big role in government. I'm not sure why pointing out that they are men is of any matter. That would be sexist if you only cared about their gender.

Wow, that's about the most retarded load of complete ******** I've seen in quite some time.
User avatar #266 to #261 - napalmpie (06/21/2013) [-]
That's not totally ******** .
It is true that in the higher spheres women are still a minority. It's slowly changing, though.
It's also true that, as a man, you can't wear feminine clothing without being mocked.. And then I'd ask: "Why not?"
I don't personally want to wear a dress, but if my neighbor want to, why couldn't he? He does what he want.
#401 to #266 - anonymous (01/20/2014) [-]
no it is true, it happened. talking about the picture there.

if i and a bunch of male friends made a youtube video where we laughed about female genital mutilation could you imagine the **** we would cop? not even men would applaud it. women, just the same as men, can be ******* vicious and cruel and it is becoming more socially acceptable for women to be that way and less socially acceptable for men to act that way. it shouldn't be socially acceptable for ANYONE to act that way and that is equality. not this ******** .
#402 to #401 - napalmpie (01/20/2014) [-]
Yeah uh I guess. I perfectly know that women are the same as men on most levels, the only true difference being gender. We're all humans after all.
I dunno, I don't really care anymore, I came on fj all white-knight-ish and **** but shortly after I learned to don't give a damn. Mostly because the majority of users on this site are americans and I don't really know anything about american politics and stuff, and also beacause I learned that an internent argument rarely lead to someone learning someti-hing.
So I got more involved into real-life things and left internet arguments for whose who feel like being involved in these.

Also I'm pretty sure I wasn't referring to the picture. And why in Cthulhu's name would you post an answer to an half-year old comment? I don't even know why I'm answering you, nor do I know if you'll read this.
To anyone reading this comment, sorry it it is all messy and **** , I'm really ******* tired, came to fj to laugh or see some cool **** and found this. Huh.
User avatar #277 to #266 - killthebilly (06/21/2013) [-]
And sure, let him do what he want. I'm not stopping him, nor is anybody else. But we are allowed to do what we want, and most people would giggle a little when they see a full grown male running around in clothes that were not made for his gender.

But make him run around in a kilt (it's a ******* dress made for men), then that's a whole other story.
Men are laughed at if they run around in woman-clothes, not because it's a dress or it's feminine, but because it clothes not made for them, and it looks ridiculous. But if they run around in clothes that are made for them, but still a dress or some thing that resembles a dress, that's fine, because they prolly won't look just as ridiculous.
User avatar #279 to #277 - napalmpie (06/21/2013) [-]
Agreed.
I think it would be an inetresting experiment to design a dress (not a skirt, we already have kilts for that) for men and go in the street or in a store while wearing it.
Yes, I think it could work.
I mean, no one is giggling at Gandalf, an dhe wears a dress.

Nah, you're right, I didn't think enough about that before answering.

You've really swayed me with that argument there
#264 to #262 - teranin ONLINE (06/21/2013) [-]
What argument? When you operate in a realm of ******** to that extreme what possible rational argument would sway you otherwise? There is no Patriarchy, female power is subtle and difficult to easily see but it has always been there throughout the ages manipulating the more direct male power in societies. Sexism is sexism, regardless of the gender of the person engaging in it, because all sexism is is showing a bias against one sex over another sex. None of those statements will likely matter in the slightest to a person as delusional as you, so I don't know why I bothered to type them.
User avatar #268 to #264 - napalmpie (06/21/2013) [-]
Queen Victoria isn't a suitable argument.
It was a century ago and she was conservative. She also was one of the richest people in the world, if not simply the richest. She had everything she wanted, while normal women and even the lowest noble women had nearly nothing to say against man authority.

#267 to #264 - penguinsdoingit (06/21/2013) [-]
There's no sexism against men. There are instances where men have been discriminated because of just being men, but these are few and aimed at the individual rather than the gender as a whole.

There's no systematic and historical sexism against men as there is against women. Saw some dude in a comment here cry about men being sexualised as well. And sure, that happens, but arguably not even close to the same extent.

But FJ is mostly however 15-20 year old men who mostly sit in all day and are yet to complete some sort of high education. I'm not saying education in itself is necessary, but it helps when you analyse and explore certain issues in society, uni/etc helps you think in these terms.

I'm off for the day now and probably won't be on for another 30 due to busy schedule.

Did you even look at the content before typing this out? When companies like virgin airlines ban men from sitting near children, it paints ALL MEN as ********** , not individual men. This is the very definition of sexism, to deny that is to fail to understand what sexism is.

Hum, on the military point I can't agree with you.
At this time women just couldn't engage in the military forces, except as nurses.
#283 to #282 - teranin ONLINE (06/21/2013) [-]
Yes, that's the point. Not a very priviledged life men led during the main years of this "patriarchy" huh, with us constantly dying to protect women and children, our lives being considered of little to no value to society as a whole. If this presupposed "patriarchy" exists to benefit men, why are men the only ones who have to sign up for selective service? That seems a tad backwards, don't you think?
User avatar #284 to #283 - napalmpie (06/21/2013) [-]
Well that situation is what i'd call "backfiring patriarchy" if I wanted to use uselessly complicated words.
It's not really a great thing for men to have the "privilege" to go to war, but it's the consequence of saying that men are made for the hard work. It is not sexism against women, nor against men, it is just sexism: saying that only men can fight and women can't and should still at home.
#311 to #284 - teranin ONLINE (06/21/2013) [-]
an interesting assessment.  The patriarchy is made-up nonsense, but treating humans as the sexually dimorphic species they are IS actually sexist, which is why straight science is not enough to bring about major cultural change.  So I don't completely disagree with you although I find the way you worded your point to be wrapped in a contextual fallacy.  That being said, how do you feel about the recent development that women can now serve as army rangers and navy seals, as frontline special ops?  Personally I think it's a bad idea wrapped in a good intention, because of course women should have equal opportunity to engage in whatever occupation they want with men, no question, but on the other hand they seperate out physical standards for women in the military, and the standards they will use for women becoming Rangers or Seals are going to be lower than male standards for joining just the standard army, so while certainly these ladies will be some tough people they really won't be anywhere near as physically dangerous as their male compatriots, and will be ill-equipped for high level physically taxing missions and for doing things like moving wounded 250ib men.  On the other hand, that only matters for things like running and whatnot, it matters little for much of what combat entails, that being firing guns at the enemy from a distance, and it certainly doesn't mean they will have relaxed standards for mental and tactical acuity and training, so my concerns, while valid, will likely turn out to be inconsequential 9 times out of 10.  The problem is that 1 time out of 10 where the seperated standards cause the female Ranger to be a liability to her squad... The way I see it, they are handling it wrong, they should allow (of course) women to join the Rangers and Navy Seals, but only if they can meet the current physical requirements for those special forces corps, without the reduction in standards based on gender.  Surely some women would be able to pull those standards off, and would be a real asset to those special forces teams, but it would prevent a severe dilution in overall elite talent from allowing people to join that do not stack up to the criteria of anyone else... I don't even take that aspect as being gender based, after all, were I an army ranger I wouldn't want a man in my squad who could only get into the rangers after completing a significantly reduced physical workload, that person would be a danger to my squad.  That's my take on it, anyway.  What are your thoughts?

Personally I think it's a bad idea wrapped in a good intention, because of course women should have equal opportunity to engage in whatever occupation they want with men, no question, but on the other hand they seperate out physical standards for women in the military, and the standards they will use for women becoming Rangers or Seals are going to be lower than male standards for joining just the standard army, so while certainly these ladies will be some tough people they really won't be anywhere near as physically dangerous as their male compatriots, and will be ill-equipped for high level physically taxing missions and for doing things like moving wounded 250ib men. On the other hand, that only matters for things like running and whatnot, it matters little for much of what combat entails, that being firing guns at the enemy from a distance, and it certainly doesn't mean they will have relaxed standards for mental and tactical acuity and training, so my concerns, while valid, will likely turn out to be inconsequential 9 times out of 10. The problem is that 1 time out of 10 where the seperated standards cause the female Ranger to be a liability to her squad... The way I see it, they are handling it wrong, they should allow (of course) women to join the Rangers and Navy Seals, but only if they can meet the current physical requirements for those special forces corps, without the reduction in standards based on gender. Surely some women would be able to pull those standards off, and would be a real asset to those special forces teams, but it would prevent a severe dilution in overall elite talent from allowing people to join that do not stack up to the criteria of anyone else... I don't even take that aspect as being gender based, after all, were I an army ranger I wouldn't want a man in my squad who could only get into the rangers after completing a significantly reduced physical workload, that person would be a danger to my squad. That's my take on it, anyway. What are your thoughts?

Off course the standards shouldn't be lowest for women. Not only it is dangerous for the squad to include somebody "weaker", but it is not a way to make men and women equals. By lowering the standards for the training of military women they aren't making them equal to men, if you get what I'm trying to say.
I, as a male, would probably not be able to enter the Navy Seals or the Rangers or any elite military force, and I don't want to. If a woman want to enter the military, she should be able to do what any other soldier can do, and the governement, headquarters or whatever wouldn't be more indulgent with her than with a man. It's like they are saying "Yes you can be a soldier, but you're a woman so..." and that's not really establishing gender equality.

Exactly my point, albeit presented a bit differently. Good on you, guy.

It's all a result of patriarchy. And you can't compare that, men not being allowed to sit near women, to the sexism we have daily against women.

And that pic is just retarded. Of course there aren't as much "women's history" as there is men's. Simply because, well, the patriarchy was way stronger before. Women were supposed to stay home and take care of the children and the daily chores, where as men were out bringing food to the table (or going to war). This was the rule and the norm, with very few exceptions.

I also like how the pic glorifies war.

Right, this is me now over and out. Got a train to catch.

C'mon.
Stop raging everywhere in all ******* directions.

This isn't feminism, this is ******** . Feminism is claiming equal salaries for men and women, stuff like that. ******** is saying crap like "let's cut off the ballz of every men bkz that's what lead them to raep women".

If you want to meet nice girls (this is adressed to boys/men), just live the way you want. In our actual world, it's easier to meet people of the same sex than your's, so start by meeting nice boys, then you'll meet nice girls.
I already see people comin' and sayin' "no this doesn't work you can't meet a girl who will accept you as you are". Well if you start like that it's already a failure.

You can't rename something just because you don't like part of that group. Otherwise I would have started calling Christians-who-aren't-fanatical Christese.

I think that was the original intention of the feminist movement, but then due to general prejudices it became the 'equality for middle class white women movement' (which led to the womanism idea of black people being involved).

Now people have become tired of the feminist movement even more because of the radical views of all-female families and the 'baby-ban', so people now believe this viewpoint is simply 'equalism'. I genuinely think it's the same ideas, just some people take it too far and **** up the movement.

Yep, maybe never heard this term before but it sounds much better.

Yeah, you see, it is a common occurrence to confuse both terms.

seriously why do I have to BEG to meet another female that isn't a bitch.Just,come on you guys,just because were girls doesn't mean we deserve to be treated like royalty.Yes,it would be nice for awhile,but we just can't expect men to kneel down and worship us like gods.Honestly,I think guys and girls are equal,men may have a harder time when it comes to things like pressure and stuff,and girls have a harder time when it comes to body,like periods or pregnancy but that still does not give us women excuses to be bitchy just because were PMS'ING!! oh,I'm a woman,and I'm going to tell the rest of my gender what I think,and if you get mad about it,then go be a n attention whore some where else! because the innocent act ain't cute,and by cute,I mean IT'S GETTING ON EVERYBODY'S ******* NERVES SO YOU NEED TO STOP RIGHT NOW.Just because you PMS'ing,you don't have an excuse to be a bitch,and I don't care if you think just because were women,we have the rights to put men down because of it.So,knock it the hell off,because the people on the internet,aren't gonna deal with your **** ,I don't mean to rage,but I'm sure I'm not the only one out there who's sick of this ******** .

It is very very challenging to find a respectful woman rather than a women who thinks she has higher power/authority than men b/c she is female. its rather uncommon for both male and female alike to find women instead of bitches. and like how mikko said, when a bitch gets prego and has a child, if the child is female the bitch will raise the child as a bitch and if the child is male she will influence the child to **** bitches.


I mean, yeah, my mom is the alpha in my house but that is for a logical reasons. she knows all the basic needs for a modern day family: medical, IT, engineering, ect...


with all the bitches out there, that is the reason why i dont plan on dating at any point in the near future. probably not for another 12 years (when i will be 30). and dont even try getting me started on the girls who are still in HS and get pregnant for whatever dumbfounded reason they have ._.

Bitches are everywhere because guys keep saying, "Oh, it's okay that my girlfriend's a bitch because I still get 						*****					." and then the bitch gets pregnant, guilts the guy into staying or raises the kid alone. Either way, the bitch teaches the daughter to be a bitch or the bitch influences her son to enjoy the poon of other bitches. It's a vicious circle.

I'm really tired of all the talk about feminism lately. A lot of the women who claim to be feminists, don't have a clue about what they are talking about. Feminism should not be about women having to cook food, cleaning, that there's too much focus on our looks and being skinny, etc... This has nothing to do with feminism. (btw the reason why there's preasure on women to be skinny is mostly by all the gay and female designers not straight men) Feminism should be about women's rights and opportunities. It's not about making men and women completely alike or women superior. Gender roles are good to a certain extent. I'm really happy that I just have to clean and make dinner, so what? At least I don't have to do the hard work men do, like fixing the car, etc.. We do things that we prefer, it's in our brains, there is a reason behind gender roles.

In the country where I live, which is Norway, women often say that we don't have the same salary as men. Of course if you look in general, we don't have the same salaries, but if a man and a woman have the same education, experience and job they actually do have the same salary. Women tend to chose to become for example a nurse, while men become engineers. Of corse should the man earn more than the woman in this scenario. We have the same rights as men, which is what gender equality is about.

If we're going to talk about feminism and gender equality, I think we should talk about women in developing countries. We should talk about women in Afghanistan, Congo, Pakistan, India and Somalia, which are the most dangerous countries for women to live in. The women have it terrible there (just search it up on google), it's horrific to read about. Women don't have the same rights and opportunities, they are considered a waste of resources and they are being treated inhumanly. These women are who we should fight for.

Well feminism is also about making accept the fact that a woman can become an engineer and not a nurse. Sometimes if you're a woman and have a "man job" (mainly proletarian jobs, such as mechanician or mason) people will give you weirds looks. In the same way, it can happens if you're a man and have a "woman job" (I can't think about anything else than hairdresser or tailor, duh)
That's not catastrophic, but it means everybody haven't accepted yet that whatever your sex is, you do what the **** you want.
User avatar #287 to #258 - ehvh (06/21/2013) [-]
Sorry, didn't really answer it right. People don't really think that it's that unusual for women to become engineers, and that's a very small problem. I think it just might be unusual for men to see women becoming for example mechanics.
User avatar #286 to #258 - ehvh (06/21/2013) [-]
I know that you can chose to become whatever you want, but women usually chose jobs that consist of taking care of people and jobs where you are more social. When boys and girls are born, they are not the same. Women think differently and usually prefer different things, this is not only caused by gender roles but there's also something in our brain that tells us to like certain things. (there are of course exceptions) Women do actually have the right to become an engineer, but most women choose not to because it's not something that seems interesting to them. (not because they're afraid that someone will think that it's strange) In Norway, if a woman wants to study engineering she actually gets extra points so that it's a higher chance for her to come in. The reason why it's like this, is because there are very few women who study engineering. I think that this is just plain wrong, we should not have gender quotas. I think that it's the best student who should get in to the university and it should not be based on his/her gender.
