Hi there. My name's Aaron. I'm an antitheist, but above all, a secular Humanist. I have systemic Lupus and haven't much else to say. I like posting things that provoke thought and smiles. I think we need more of those things. More thinking, more smiles.

 

Double Standards

Music video with half naked men dancing: funny
Music video with half naked women dancing: sexist and objectifying

All man’s college: sexist
All woman’s college: empowering

MRA: sexists and rape apologists
Feminists: empowering

Woman checking out a guy and calling…

Feminism literally is fighting all of the shit you’re complaining about as a man too. And a movement does not need to change it’s name as it becomes more intersectional just because you don’t want to take it seriously because it has to do with the empowerment of women first and foremost.
Feminism > some dudebro who has no idea what feminism stands for

First of all, who the fuck ever said that I was male? And even if I was male, why the hell would that disqualify me from commenting on this? Do you realize how incredibly sexist your response to me was? Apparently to you, if someone is male, they aren’t allowed to criticize feminism. Oh goodness, you just demonstrated another double standard! I should add that to the list. And by the way, I’m not advocating a simple fucking name change, Humanism and Feminism are completely different things.

1. You are male so I don’t know why you’re getting butthurt over that.
2. I don’t think you have the slightest clue how sexism actually works.
3. You can criticize feminism all you want, but I’d push you to learn a but more about the movement you’re criticizing first.
4. Wah wah

I. Am. Not. Male. I’m non-gendered. I’m not my girlfriend’s fucking boyfriend, I’m her significant other. This discussion has completely deviated from the feminism topic now. So how about you stop insisting that I’m some kind of dude-bro, and actually take responsibility for misgendering a person? I can understand that you would first assume that I’m male, considering my first piece of commentary of this list, but to have the god damn nerve to insist that I’m male after I tell you that I’m not, that’s where I get extremely fucking pissed off.

MRA: sexists and rape apologists

Woman checking out a guy and calling him hot: normal
Man checking out a girl and calling her hot: objectifying

Men’s rights: a joke
Woman’s rights: a serious issue

My boyfriend tries to take a bag into a store: sir you have to leave that by the door. We don’t want anyone stealing anything
I try to take my purse into the exact same store: go right ahead miss

Man pays for dinner: What a responsible man, taking care of his girl
Woman pays for dinner: What a horrible man she has, making her pay!

Man calls a woman a slut: Objectifying
Woman calls a man a douche: “You tell ‘em, girl!”

Man goes into Victoria’s Secret with his girlfriend: “Ew, pervert, why does he have to be in here, go outside who cares if its raining!” (yeah that actually fucking happened)
Woman goes into a sex store: “Wow so cool, she isn’t afraid to come in here!”

Gay men: gross
Gay women: so fucking hot

Man cries: weakling
Woman cries: she must have broken down, poor dear

Man hits a woman: disgusting sexist pig
Woman hits a man: He must have provoked her

Man rapes a woman: “what a pig! he deserves to die”
Woman rapes a man: “Well, he had an erection, he obviously wanted it. Not rape.

Woman is in the military: “Wow, what a brave courageous girl”
Man is in the military: He must not have been smart enough to do anything else

This post embodies my entire viewpoint of Feminism, that viewpoint being disdain. Because according to the views of so many of these “Quasi-Feminists”,

Hip-Hop music videos are horrible and objectifying women! But the song and video for Raining Men, well that’s just funny! A woman can check me out, but as soon as I look back, I’m a disgusting pig. If my girlfriend pays for our dinner, I’m either a penniless bum or I’m a dick. Rapists who are women don’t exist.

If I were to ever slap my girlfriend across the face, she should call the police, end the relationship, and press charges. Rightfully so. But If she were to do the same thing to me, I probably just said something that offended her, so it’s really my fault and I should stop being such a little wuss about it.

You can’t accept the social injustices that benefit you, and at the same time, fight the social injustices that don’t. You either have to fight them all, or accept them all. This shit isn’t unique to feminism, I could say the same exact thing to any other kind of rights activist.

This is the kind of shit that quasi-Feminists don’t want to talk about, because it doesn’t promote their pseudo gender equality dogmas. Show this list to a militant feminist, and they will try to justify every point made. Feminists claim to fight for equality among genders, but the majority of this loosely organized group is only fighting for the rights of one gender.

Humanism > Feminism

Also one time he was supposed to write a violin and piano duet, and he wrote the violin part, but he didn’t really feel like writing the piano part, or was too lazy etc. When the concert came up (he played the piano while a fiend played the violin) he set up a blank piece of paper (so people would think he was reading music) and improvised. After the concert he wrote it down so it could be published

I need opinions from every single one of my followers and anyone else who sees this post.
This is a symbol used in an anti-Fascist, anti-Nazi film from 1940 named “The Great Dictator”, created by the brilliant Charlie Chaplin. I’m thinking about using this symbol in a tattoo, since this movie moved me deeply, but I’m not sure if this too closely resembles the Nazi swastika. So I ask,
Does this remind you of the Nazi swastika?
To be clear, this symbol is a parody of the Nazi swastika. It plays a role in an anti-Nazi, anti-fascist film that promotes the necessity of kindness among humanity.
