I know women are sick of being policed about how they present themselves/dress because “men can’t control themselves”. What I don’t understand is why more men aren’t sick of it.
You’re being accused of being so dim-witted that you can’t manage logical thought. That is what that argument is. It’s…
Thank you, Kiri. One of my biggest annoyances is when people (men and women) actually try to shame me for not taking advantage of girls when they’re drunk.
Them: Dude, you could totally hook up with her!
Me: Yes, but she’s shitty drunk and I’m not comfortable with that.
Them: Quit being a pussy, man.
Me: Hey, fuck off.
It does piss me off when I get lumped in with those assholes. It’s pretty defeating to hear someone actually write me off as a horrendously sexist pig with nothing valid to add “because [I’m] a man.”
I actually knew a girl in college who would warn new girls not to go near me and when I confronted her about it she said it was just a joke and “besides, that’s what all men are like anyway.” To her it may have been a joke, but to the new girls it seemed like I was a horrendous rape machine that would violate them if they ever even spoke to me. That was so devastating to my character and my mental constitution that I literally stopped talking to people for a while unless required to. All of this because this girl had this thought that because I was a man, it meant I was willing to fuck anything that moved.
It is quite frustrating and I realize that it pales in comparison to most of the things women have to deal with. But fighting for the idea that men don’t have to just a bunch of dudebro dickweed Neanderthals is another aspect of Feminism, and one that I really appreciate.

Welcome to another edition of Curtis & James’ Discount Comic Book Club! It’s a simple post, we’re…
Iris West The Flash Character Description Surfaces Following Arrow Ratings Jump - A character description for The Flash’s Iris West describes the character as an African-American psychology student as smart as she is beautiful.
You guys, you guys….. Do you know what this means?
Lemme just point to the first two tags on this post.
We’re probably, admittedly, never going to see him (I mean, he’s not even born yet) but that would make Wally West Black. And that would be awesome forever.
I apologize, I’m not being racist or anything. But they’re Gingers! Pale adorable freckled gingers, I mean no disrespect to anyone but it wouldn’t be Iris and Wally if they were black
Iris West can’t be black !!! Are you fucking shitting me right now?!? Changing the West’s ethnicity is just like making Wonder Woman Russian. It’s their fucking TRADEMARK
THANK YOU! A human being with an ounce of sense!
Would someone else like to tackle this? I do not have the energy today.
I have an easy rebuttal to the “Iris (and therefor Wally) can’t be black!” folks - Really? By the standard you’ve set forth, an Israeli woman being cast as Wonder Woman would be seen as a slight as well (oops). I bet there shouldn’t be a black Spider-Man either (oops). How about Jimmy Olsen being changed to Jenny Olsen or Perry White being black (double oops)?
