First to Know on Richard Rodwell finding out that the two children he helped raise were not his biological relations.
Are times really that bad that a person has to be downright deceptive to the person they agreed to be together until death? And for so long at that. It has to be extra painful that the only reason he found out was because of the proverbial rumor mill talking about it.
If the DNA isn’t important when it comes to being a parent then why do people lie about it?
This is what some guy actually said in defense of fondling a woman’s thigh while on a JetBlue flight apparently.
[tw: sexual assault, rape]
I posted last week asking people if they knew of some good resources for male victims of sexual assault. Here is the list people came up with:
Out at the park with Vicki the other day. At first I didn’t like this picture on a count of it looking like the cover art of a Black Tape for a Blue Girl album or something. But the more I look at it the more I like it.
My dear Vicki.
Supports LGBT Rights: Good!
Supports Women’s Rights: Good!
Is Anti Racism: Good!
Is Anti Bullying: Good!
Is Against Discrimination: Good!
Isn’t Ageist: Good!
Supports Men’s Rights: Fuckin’ MRA. Check your privilege. LOL men’s rights! All men are pigs and rapists. If you’re an MRA you must be…
Its simple. Supporting men’s rights outside the realm of feminism is the one sure fire way to see just how supportive feminists are of men’s rights. One of three things is likely to happen.
1. Ideally they would parse between reasonable MRAs and extreme one (these are the ones that are worth talking to).
2. They will claim that MRAs don’t need to exist because feminism has everything covered and that they support men’s rights in theory (chances are the best you will get out of them is grudging respect). These people are likely to be the ones that say MRAs should identify as feminist but don’t because they are afraid of the stigma that has been painted on the label (and yes they will assure you that feminists themselves had absolutely nothing to do with the creation of that stigma, it was all Rush Limbaugh’s doing).
3. They will go on some batshit crazy insane rant about how all MRAs are like that one MRA they met in some forum somewhere and how that they are nothing but a bunch of rape supporters that hate women, don’t pay taxes, rip the tags off of mattresses and wear white after Labor Day and whatnot (just leave, these feminists are almost so badly indoctrinated in their anti-male bullshit they are not worth talking to, you can try but along that path lies only pain and suffereing).
I saw we turn the pressure back on them.
If they try to tell you you are a feminist but won’t claim the label ask why are they so hell bent on making everyone a feminist.
If they try to tell you that you need to work for equality under the banner of feminism ask them for proof of copyright/trademark/patent on the concept of equality.
If they to say you are negative based solely on being an MRA, ask them what the official feminist position is on something.
I’m willing to work with the reasonable feminists that I cross paths with but some of them need to fucking get the fuck over themselves.
At the laundromat a week or so ago. I was so damn tired.
Why am I still up?
