makisekurisus asked: the best example I've heard against losers who use "not all men": "When you go to the pool and the lifeguard tells everyone to stop running, if you weren't running in the first place, you can safely assume that they weren't talking to you anyway. It's not necessary to call attention to the fact that you weren't running."

This is in fact an absurd example. One can assume safely that the pool-goers not protesting are not near the runners in question and that the lifeguard’s attention is focused when the whistle is blown and the command uttered.

The accusation against men who say “not me” are responding to blanket statements of “men are jerks because they do ‘x’ ” which seems to include all men in its circumference of guilt. What should be said is “men who do ‘x’ are jerks,” which narrows the circle down to a narrow spotlight on those who perform the guilty action (running by the pool in this case).

If you’re tired of dealing with “not me” statements, consider the language you’re using— it may have more to do with the reasons why there are protests than you think.

Oh look, a guy with a porn blog is here to mansplain us silly ladies about how “not all men.”  Thanks for the tone-policing, broseph.

Okay so I grew up in a tourist town and the town’s economy heavily depends upon tourism, okay?  And I’ve worked jobs in that town (because duh it’s my hometown) that required me to deal with said tourists.

Well.

Tourists don’t read signs.  Tourists maybe do read signs, but somehow think they don’t apply to them.  Like the guy who came in the exit “because the entrance was closed” THAT IS BECAUSE WE ARE NOT OPEN YET (hours clearly posted, it was 6:30 AM, omfg).  Tourists are legend for asking questions like “at what altitude do deer turn into elk?” and “where are the mountains?” and so forth (hi it’s a small mountain town).  Also, they don’t know how to drive.  They don’t follow speed limits because they’re too busy ogling the mountains or doing whatever.

I’ve had tourists walk out into the middle of the street in front of me, while I’m driving a car, without looking, to take pictures.

Fucking tourists, man.  They’re a fucking nightmare.

OH BUT WAIT IT’S NOT ALL TOURISTS.  I am just venting and telling stories about the worst and most inconsiderate ones!  I mean the good tourists, I don’t even really notice because they are fine and behave like reasonable people!  But anyone from a tourist town knows EXACTLY what I am talking about when I start to complain about tourists.

It’s the same damn thing.  If you’re not one of THOSE tourists, then you’re not who we’re complaining about.  Although let’s be real anyone who’s been a tourist has probably done something foolish because you’re unfamiliar with the territory, and wow this analogy is really apt because the same thing goes for men too!  It’s like when you’re unaware of something, say, patriarchal privilege or local customs, you are probably going to make mistakes sometimes that annoy, say, underprivileged people or locals!

When in Rome, do as the Romans do.  Learn where your privilege-unawareness is and become aware.

If Kristen Stewart can lose her job, risk losing her entire career, fanbase, and respect over cheating on her boyfriend, the fact that Chris Brown is still acknowledged and celebrated is a fucking crime. If you want a prime example of women’s inequality in the media, there it is.

This is a critical part of sex positivity that tends to be overlooked. Let’s celebrate empowering amazing sex and the choice to not have sex, or only have certain kinds of sex.

Apparently it’s not socially acceptable for a man to invite another man out just for coffee or to go out for a meal, in case it’s perceived as a date. Like it’s fine if you wanna go to the pub and drink beer and have a chat but make it non-alcoholic and suddenly you’re not straight anymore? You can go to the cinema together but ONLY if it’s an action movie. You guys can’t even just go shopping with each other. Oh masculinity, so fragile, so strange.

Mozzarella does her best impression of a sausage.

I just love how after he asks if it’s a sausage, it looks down like “oh shit! I am a sausage :o”

"Are you a sausage?"
"*cats looks down and back up* yah"

I love it when cats open their mouths wide open and all that comes out is a small peep

Seriously, what the police are doing is not “bad”, it’s illegal.

There is a reason why people are raging mad at this situation, and it’s because it’s a blatant violation of basic human rights.

If you don’t understand that, then you are part of the problem.
