At first I though this was a joke
Don’t ignore this Tumblr
Yet they still do even when it’s right in their face.
Men are physically able to defend themselves, women are not. NOT THE SAME
Yet men are put in jail for defending themselves. They don’t have metal skin. Things hurt. Maybe you should give rational women some credit for being able to control their emotions, instead of playing like women are some mindless emotional beasts.
Ah, I see. Women are NOT physically able to defend themselves. NEWSFLASH: EVERY FEMALE: um yes, just here to say that you don’t actually have the ability to shove, kick, punch, slap, grab, jab, or dodge. ALL a figment of the imagination.
It IS the same. Thinking men are these strange, inhuman creatures who cannot feel pain is the problem. It isn’t okay to abuse or hurt others because it “isn’t the same”. No exceptions.
I appreciate this post for so many reasons.
For one, it calls out the “women can’t defend themselves” bullshit.
Second, I appreciate the acknowledgement of a legitimate issue that affects men. I see a lot of stuff on tumblr that can invalidate the idea that there are issues that affect men at all, and I see it side by side with the message that it’s not okay to derail a conversation about issues that affect other people with insistence that you have problems too. Seeing a post that makes it seem like all people (regardless of privileged status) are allowed an opportunity to talk about and look for help with issues that affect them is both encouraging and really validates the hell out of those ideas to me.
