    As A Male Feminist, I Really Think I’d Absolutely Crush It If I Ever Had To Publicly Apologize For Sexual Misconduct http://www.clickhole.com/blogpost/male-feminist-i-really-think-id-absolutely-crush-i-7018?utm_content=Main&utm_campaign=SF&utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=SocialMarketing

    this would be nice in a world where these "creeps and abusers" were a discrete group of bad apples who simply need to be outed and removed from their jobs, not the product of a system where from top to bottom, industry to industry, men are in a position of power and often go through life totally unaware and unable to grapple with the fact that they are minimizing, harassing, and even abusing women

    You know what would have been a much easier and better way for Taylor Swift to protect her #reputation and distance herself from the alt-right? By actually saying, "I'm not with you white idiots". But notice how she hasn't done that. Because she's a nazi.

    i just read kate harding's op ed about this after her ridiculous tweets and insistence that anyone who disagree with her was a russian bot https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/posteverything/wp/2017/11/17/im-a-feminist-i-study-rape-culture-and-i-dont-want-al-franken-to-resign/?utm_term=.01bf51d177ad what worries me about this is how reasonable it will seem to a lot of people. and how easy it is to read these kinds of messages and think, "i'm not going to go public with information that i was assaulted by a democrat, because the fallout will end up being even more damaging for women." we are asking too much of women. this hits close to home for me because despite my reputation here, i haven't "outed" men who have done shitty things to me, including assault, for fear of reprisal. and it's not always the fear that it will put me in even more danger, although sometimes it is. it's the fear that what happens next will only make things worse with no conceivable benefit. there is just so little recourse for women. it's difficult not to worry about everybody who will be affected by your decision to tell people about what happened to you. it's difficult enough not to worry about what will happen to the person who assaulted you in the first place. part of why i have so little tolerance for y'alls bullshit on this board is that i have no ability to do the same thing in my personal life.

    i have been as critical about that show's many flaws as anyone despite your absolute spencer-like insistence on the fact that i am a joss whedon fangirl who thinks he and his shows are the peak of feminism. but i appreciate that your reaction to these things is to try to discredit me rather that deal with the fact that you're a misogynistic piece of trash, always have been and always will be.

    I agree, and it may be trivial to bring up, but i've noticed that males tend to get more board recognition for essentially repeating what a woman posted. hmm

    I am quoting this for posterity in case we do a "worst post of the year" thread like we did last year

    I hope that this time it's finally broken through and created a new normal where creeps and abusers aren't offered cover anymore. But I'm an optimist. The disturbing take I keep seeing is the "where does it stop" angle. People are actually out here wondering aloud if smiling at the wrong person will get them drawn and quartered.

    For a group of people that insist that videogames do not have a negative impact on mental health, gamers really do try their best to prove the opposite don't they.

    You're like inches away from recognizing the point that misogyny is everywhere including in things that are otherwise great. It's not about banishing art for thoughtcrimes, it's just about recognizing toxic ideology. Nobody is taking your toys away, they're just pointing out that your toys...hate women.
