Just an experiment. Reblog if you actually give a fuck about male victims of domestic violence and rape.

Of fucking course

What sick bastard doesn’t

"You’d be surprised", said Xaldien, who just lost four followers and received a lovely "men can’t be raped" anon shortly after reblogging this the first time.

Yowch, disgusting.

Charts from OKCupid, showing how straight women and men rate each other based on ages. For women, the men they find most attractive are roughly their own age. For men, the women they find most attractive are roughly the same age - 20 to 23 - regardless of the age of the man. (538)

Good fucking Christ.

men are shit

daily reminder that men are fucking gross, as if you need one

WOW OK

FIRST OF ALL NO ONE HAS VIRTUALLY ANY CONTROL OVER WHO THEY FIND ATTRACTIVE

BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY

THERE’S THIS THING THAT FUCKING HAPPENED CALLED FUCKING EVOLUTIONWHICH YOU SHITSTAINS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IF YOUVE TAKEN A SINGLE DAY OF SCIENCE CLASS.

EVOLUTION SHAPED EVERY SINGLE ONE OF OUR CURRENT SEXUAL BEHAVIORS. ITS ONLY JOB WAS TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR ANCESTORS HAD THE MOST SUITABLE TRAITS TO RAISE LOTS OF HEALTHY BABIES.

WHAT DID THAT MEAN FOR WOMEN?? WELL LET ME TELL YOU THAT BABIES ARE A SHITLOAD OF WORK. SO CAVEWOMEN HAD TO FIND A MATE THAT WAS NOT ONLY GENETICALLY SUITABLE BUT ALSO SEEMED LIKE HE WOULD STICK AROUND AND TAKE CARE OF THE FUCKING BABY. A REAL MATURE TRUSTWORTHY KINDA GUY. I.E., SOMEONE HER OWN AGE PROBABLY.

AND MEN???? WELL, SHIT, ALL THEY NEEDED TO DO WAS MAKE SURE THEIR SPERM WENT TOWARDS MAKING A HEALTHY ASS BABY. YOU KNOW WHO USUALLY GIVES BIRTH TO HEALTHY BABIES? YOUNG WOMEN. AS WOMEN AGE THE RISK OF NATURAL GENETIC DEFECTS INCREASES EXPONENTIALLY.

MEN BEING ATTRACTED TO YOUNG WOMEN IS NOT A CHOICE ON THEIR PART, AND IT IS NOT “DISGUSTING” OR EVIDENCE THAT MEN ARE “SHIT”. IT IS A BIOLOGICALLY, EVOLUTIONARILY ENCODED TRAIT. AND FURTHERMORE, BEING ATTRACTED TO YOUNG WOMEN IS NOT THE SAME THING AS CHASING AFTER OR HARRASSING THEM. THIS CHART SAYS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT MORAL CHARACTER.

FUCKING SHIT, I AM A YOUNG LESBIAN. IF ANYTHING I SHOULD FEEL THE MOST VICTIMIZED BY THIS CHART.

BUT I DON’T. BECAUSE I UNDERSTAND FUCKING SCIENCE. GOODBYE

Bless

Actually the evolution argument for men and women’s sexual behavior is not entirely credible. There is probably some truth to it, but it does not entirely explain this graph/chart. (which is really poorly designed btw. X and Y Axis anyone?). Neither does “all men are pigs who want to rape teenagers”. Obviously these men can’t help who they’re attracted to, and hopefully the majority of them will take into account other aspects of a women other than their physical appearance. Factors like interest compatibility and shared values usually control for age gaps, which is why not all men marry younger women. Coming back to the evolution argument. The “men are attracted to fertility, women to consistency” argument is problematic. Primates are communal creatures. They don’t depend on their individual mates for support. Fathers usually aren’t that involved in their young’s raising, as the young are raised by groups of females. So there’s no compelling argument that women shouldn’t want young fertile men just as much as men do. Young men would be stronger, probably more dominant, and better able to fetch food. So why aren’t all women attracted to young men? The other problem with the evolution argument is that it is clearly untrue that men’s attraction is evolutionary in basis. If it was, skinny women would not be attractive to any men. Big breasts, big hips, and plenty of fat and muscle should be all men are ever attracted to, if their attraction is primarily evolutionary. This is completely untrue in modern euro-american society, where men regularly report the exact opposite attractions. It is also not true that men have always shown preference for younger women. IN many times, in many cultures, men regularly married much older women, and mature women were considered much more attractive than very young women. Though evolution does play a part in our attraction, a close analysis were show that society plays a much larger role. 

p.s. how does this threaten you more because your a lesbian? Why do you even care? 

p.p.s is it necessary to be so offensive in your language? many people do not have access to classes on evolutionary psychology, and it seems unreasonable to expect them to have that knowledge, or hate them for not having it.

Please stop and read this.

I’m doing a project on gay rights in today’s society.

So if you believe that same sex couples should be allowed to get married, please reblog this.

This would be a lot of help, thank you.

reminder: ferguson and palestine are still happening and are still important even though there’s less attention being paid to them right now

this also applies to the missing school girls kidnapped by Boko Haram in Nigeria!

IT IS GETTING BETTER

When I first read about this woman’s plan I thought it was a strong idea but I was worried that it was a little bit much for one person, no matter how dedicated, to keep it up for too long, especially since she has, you know, college to commit to. I never thought about how, if other people helped her carry her burden, I never thought about how much it would look like pallbearers with a coffin. Which is simply one of the strongest visual symbols one can use to disturb people in the western world.

you rock it, young feminist protesters. Fuck yeah, I am so proud of you.

Yes, they’re awesome.
But I think there is another part about this I like, too.  Notice the burden of that pain is being shared — made lighter by women committed to being here and helping.  They can’t fix it, of course but mutual support makes the burden lighter.
No wonder the patriarchy wants us in competition with each other…

We shall overcome some day

hey! there’s a boy helping too. We can All be feminists. It’s good for all of us. Hopefully if the student body gets behind her they can get the school to take some action.
