STOP ASSUMING FEMINISTS DON’T CARE ABOUT MEN WHO’VE BEEN ABUSED

YES ABUSE HAPPENS TO MEN

YES MEN AREN’T “ALLOWED” TO REPORT IT OR BE EMOTIONAL ABOUT IT

BUT THAT’S

BECAUSE

PATRIARCHY SAYS MEN ARE EMOTIONLESS, WOMEN ARE EMOTIONAL, AND EMOTION AND VICTIMHOOD ARE FEMININE WEAKNESSES

things ppl say that alerts you to them being the actual worst:

  • john was my favourite beatle 
  • abolishing religion would solve a lot of problems 
  • i’m not a racist i hate all races equally 
  • disliking someone because of their political affiliation is ridiculous 
  • but if you think about it stereotypes do exist for a reason 
  • god, can you believe people on welfare own iphones
  • but what about mens rights
  • why can’t white people say the n-word
  • i’m just being the devils advocate

❝ A study on masculinity and aggression from the University of South Florida found that innocuous – yet feminine – tasks could produce profound anxiety in men. As part of the study, a group of men were asked to perform a stereotypically feminine act – braiding hair in this case - while a control group braided rope. Following the act, the men were given the option to either solve a puzzle or punch a heavy bag. Not surprisingly, the men who performed the task that threatened their masculinity were far more likely to punch the bag; again, violence serving as a way to reestablish their masculine identity. A follow-up had both groups punch the bag after braiding either hair or rope; the men who braided the hair punched the bag much harder. A third experiment, all the participants braided hair, but were split into two groups: those who got to punch the bag afterwards and those who didn’t. The men who were prevented from punching the bag started to show acute signs of anxiety and distress from not being able to reconfirm their masculinity. ❞

I am desperately sitting here going “latino wizards give me south american wizards of all sorts”

yeah seriously tell us how wizardry’s done in the new world tell me how the wizards from france and spain and britain stamped out the brujos and the medicine men and set up their own schools tell me what the fuck the british raj did to fucking india because the patel twins are going to school in scotland and what are they told about their history, tell me about native american kids learning to say wingardium leviosa with hate in their hearts and tell me about wizarding rabbis bickering about whether you can use potions on the sabbath tell me about the slaves on their ships with their wands broken, mouthing curses in the dark tell me about the runaways that made it with garter snakes wrapped around their wrists that told them when they tasted dogs in the distance, tell me about the underground railroad and abolitionists with unbreakable vows and home-spun invisibility cloaks and disilusionments, using obliviate, using imperio, knowing that they served a higher justice, tell me about what happened to black wizards in the fifties, about what gates they were storming in the sixties tell me about queer wizards taking love potions every morning in their coffee to stay married to their husbands and their wives because what else could they do?

the world only begins and ends with straight white christians if you don’t bother looking any farther than that and too many people don’t and i am tired, tired, tired

Oh.
