do u ever just see ur favorite character cry and suddenly ur going through a midlife crisis
ok so like
a man got fired because he supported an artist who says stuff like “I hate all boys”??
everyone is claiming “misandry” or some shit but like all of his points about privilege and discrimination were 100% on point and like yeah saying stuff like “I hate all boys” or whatever is stupid and petty and whatever but when you compare it to something like the shit anita sarkeesian goes through, or what rape victims go through, or the gender wage gap, or whatever which is really worse? If you see someone posting that stuff just block the post or unfollow them or whatever don’t get someone fired over it
"What rape victims go through"? Are you fucking SERIOUS? I’m going to guess that you’re unaware that Dragondicks and her followers have not only victim-blamed rape victims, but have also told someone they were "making up" being raped "just to get attention".
In any case, we’re not even talking about associating with a full-blown sociopath. The man also openly insulted the very people he was being paid to write comics for. Take a good, long while, and think about the ramifications of insulting your consumer base if you worked for literally ANY other company on this planet. Your ass would be out on the street in a heartbeat. Go ahead and Google “fired over Twitter” or “fired over Facebook”, and see what you come up with. And that’s not even including those whose firing was due to what they said in person. Would YOU keep someone around that was hurling insults at the people that were paying YOUR salary? I highly doubt it.
When a person is hired by a company, they become a representative of that company. Clearly, he was not representing it in a way that IDW wanted to allow to continue. That’s called “being a piss-poor employee”, and it happens all around the world, every fucking day, every fucking hour, and every fucking minute.
alright I feel as though I should clarify before I get hate mail for this (I’m seeing more and more people like/reblog it with shitty comments about how tumblr is a “man-hating” website and ugh).
I was going off of Equestria Daily’s post about the whole subject and didn’t really have any other info on it. My friend did some more digging and I saw that he has antagonized the fandom a bit and I can definitely see how he would get into legal trouble for that, but not enough to get fired really (like come on wearing a “literally anything before bros” shirt gets people this upset good thing most of them have male privilege or god forbid they’d have to go through what women go through every day everywhere as opposed to a small part of one website). The way EqD discussed it was really very poor as they only brought up his posts about stuff like privilege (which I still believe were 100% on point). Reading the comments made things worse as so many seemingly-rational people disagreed with him when all he really said was “privilege is a thing” and “jokes aimed at privileged people are not nearly as bad/offensive as those the other way around because privilege is a thing”. Had they maybe shown some other things he’s done to the fandom I may have felt slightly differently about the whole matter but whatever.
And really my point in my original post still stands about how shitty jokes on the internet about boys absolutely pale in comparison to what women go through every day (especially women of color, transwomen, women in poverty, etc) and, the way EqD handled the story, it seemed like these jokes were all people cared about. And actually while I’m typing this I’m realizing that it is a large thing people care about. And I agree that saying shit like “all men are scum” or whatever is dumb and it does hurt the general cause of feminism (because people will try and cite it as reasons for why tumblr is apparently “anti-men” when actually feminism helps all genders but that’s a whole other argument).
"A bit”? Uh, no, hon. Unfortunately, the list of links appear to have mysteriously disappeared from the IDW forums, but this guy spent a LOT of time insulting the fan base, as well as making generally ludicrous, sexist, and racist statements regarding humanity at large.
You also seem to have some misconceptions about “privilege”. Honey, I am a 31-year-old woman, and I know very well that women in the United States are PRIVILEGED AS FUCK. And this sick, sad circus that’s going around masquerading as “feminism” on this site bears little to no resemblance to what that label is intended to represent.
I used to consider myself a proud feminist, until how I saw that label was being abused by whiny teenage girls to basically use the exact same gender biases they claim to be against to their own, often-unfair advantages.
The “feminism” on tumblr is not feminism at all. It is chauvinism coming from directly out of the ovaries. It’s just a sad state of affairs that so few people seem to realize this. If you want a little more insight, I invite you to read through this. As for the lies we’re being fed about rape statistics and the wage gap, feel free to help yourself to these resources:
- Post of mine providing MANY links regarding rape statistics, and the psychology of the mind in regards to those who commit acts of assault. Hell, have even more, with additional insight on top of it.
“IF the one-in-four statistic is correct—it is sometimes modified to “one-in-five to one-in-four”—campus rape represents a crime wave of unprecedented proportions. No crime, much less one as serious as rape, has a victimization rate remotely approaching 20 or 25 percent, even over many years. The 2006 violent crime rate in Detroit, one of the most violent cities in America, was 2,400 murders, rapes, robberies, and aggravated assaults per 100,000 inhabitants—a rate of 2.4 percent. The one-in-four statistic would mean that every year, millions of young women graduate who have suffered the most terrifying assault, short of murder, that a woman can experience. Such a crime wave would require nothing less than a state of emergency—Take Back the Night rallies and 24-hour hotlines would hardly be adequate to counter this tsunami of sexual violence. Admissions policies letting in tens of thousands of vicious criminals would require a complete revision, perhaps banning boys entirely.”
— Heather Mac Donald, "The Campus Rape Myth".
If you seriously believe it is as much of a problem as you’ve been misled to believe it is, you’d be supporting the idea of it being A LITERAL EPIDEMIC.
Feminism is supposed to be empowering, not to send us cowering.
Rape has actually decreased dramatically in the past few decades - up to 80% since 1979, despite an increase in the willingness of victims to report them. This is even further supported by data directly from the U.S. Bureau of Justice.
- As for the “wage gap” myth, I’ll not only direct you here (which contains a boatload of sources at the bottom), but here, here, and also here and here, where it is exposed as a lie BY FEMINISTS (the second link also talks about other myths that today’s “feminism” has been spoon-feeding us).
- This post shows that even the statistics compiled BY the Girl Scouts debunks their OWN claims about girls and educational disadvantages.
- In this video, a feminist tears about the bogus Verizon ad about how “underrepresented” women are in scientific fields.
- So called “feminists” have been caught multiple goddamn times on this site concocting straight up LIES in order to “prove” the “need” for feminism.
- Not only is more child abuse committed by women than men (with over 25% of all abuse being carried out by the mother acting alone, as opposed to 17% carried out by fathers acting alone), but children are more likely to be killed by their mothers, rather than their fathers (and people can cry all they want about “But women are the ones usually taking care of the children more often!”, because since when does that make killing them the least bit acceptable???).
- If it isn’t already covered in one of the links above: At least 40% of all domestic violence is done against men, and by women, as well as the fact that recent reports from both Harvard and the CDC have discovered that up to 40% of all rape is also carried out by women.
- "Feminists" on tumblr actually praise women that made quotes such as these:
- Lastly, it needs to be understood that the majority of people that stand against “social justice warriors” are people that are fully in favor of equality for all people. There’s a difference between being against an ideal, and being against the CORRUPTION and MISREPRESENTATION of that ideal, which is what the “feminists” on tumblr are quite guilty of.
I have never felt “forced out”, “threatened”, or been made “uncomfortable” in this fandom, and it is well known to people that I am a woman. Sometimes, it has little to do with someone being female, and everything to do with them being an insufferable asshole, which is what most of these “feminists” come off as. These are not people that should be representing women in ANY capacity. You see, the very reason I even gave the damn show a shot in the first place was because I saw people from every walk of life getting along and bonding because of it. Then, suddenly, this “social justice” bullshit came around, and activism was turned into little more than a fucking fashion statement, where those preaching it often gave less than a shit about anything that didn’t directly inconvenience THEM.
So, yes: Tumblr has, indeed, become incredibly hostile towards men, and I think it has EVERYTHING to do with whiny, narcissistic, self-absorbed, attention-seeking teenage girls with low self-esteem that were given everything in their life to them on a silver platter, and treated like little “princesses”, who are then told they can “be anything they want to”, but are never encouraged to actually THINK FOR THEMSELVES. They’ve also grown up with the internet as a crutch, where they can go to be enabled, and have their every statement agreed-upon by their own, personal echo chamber, rather than ACTUALLY FUCKING GROWING THE FUCK UP, AND LEARNING FROM LIFE HOW TO BE A DECENT FUCKING HUMAN BEING.
If you think tumblr’s form of “feminism” actually believes in gender equality, then I’ve got a bridge in San Francisco to sell you.
