Both of these vines are hilarious. They both have relatively the same amount of likes and revines, but for some reason the comments are very different. They both have rude people commenting about weight but Marisa’s has far more completely repulsive ones and Dante’s has only an occasional “ew” or “his titties are bigger than mine”. To me, this literally proves that girls are viewed as objects that should be pleasing to look at. It’s wrong and unfair and I honestly sometimes feel disgraced and downright disgusted to be considered of the male gender because I don’t deserve this extra freedom not granted to girls. If girls can’t have it then I don’t want it either.
…wow, you don’t need much proof to believe something, do you?
I mean, seriously. Your proof is “one video of a fat girl got more mean comments than one video of a fat guy”? That’s just plain fucking stupid. There’s so many more factors at play here. Maybe people are familiar with the guy from other vines, and therefore respect him more. Maybe there’s some people with a bone to pick with the girl. Maybe it’s just a random coincidence (because, you know, that’s what you get when you only have a single sample from each group).
Making conclusions off of so little and so unreliable evidence is one of the many ways feminists prove themselves to be incapable of logical thought.
Vegantine, I noticed that you said, “A feminist is a woman.” I’m going to have to correct you on that. As a women’s studies major that’s about to enter grad school, I want you to know that a feminist can be male, female, trans, non-binary- any gender at all. Feminism is about gender equality, and as such, any gender can be in support of that, and therefore, identify as “feminist.” Also, what feminism mostly fights for is the destruction of patriarchy; patriarchy affects not only women, but men and anyone in between that is caught within the heteronormative gender binary.
So by saying it effects “trans” you’re literally saying a trans women is not a female what the fuck. And yes, if affects them however it is not their movement to take part in. Just like I do not speak over people of color in issues, I do not want a man/whatever gender speaking over me. Although I do not speak over them, I support them, but that does not make me a person of color. That makes me an ally, aka, a decent human being tbh. And it’s the same way with feminism.
Some corrections, OP:
1. Radical feminism is the belief in the patriarchy. Not all of feminism believes in it.
2. Destroying “the patriarchy” would do little to nothing to destroy a heteronormative gender binary. Please learn what a patriarchy is.
3. You say that feminism is about gender equality; however, you make a point to note that people who aren’t women shouldn’t “speak over” women. Remember: destroying gender roles involves everybody, and women (especially in the West) are not more important than everyone else in talking about it.
4. You don’t want a “whatever gender” speaking over you? Hmm, really. Even if they actually know what they’re talking about? I mean, you clearly have no idea what you’re talking about; a person of another gender who knows more about the topic has more value in the discussion than you. Being female doesn’t automatically make you more important than everyone that isn’t. Remember that.
Not everything is about men, SO sorry I don’t want to include them in a movement meant to help women who are constantly put under men even in their own fucking movement
It wouldn’t be a problem for it to focus only on women if people would stop spewing bullshit about it being ~the~ gender equality movement.
And yeah, sure, feminism prioritizes men all the damn time. Believe whatever the fuck you want. Meanwhile the rest of us will remain in reality.
Does anyone else get wary of people who argue the point “Men should be able to hit women back when they start it” over and over again?
I don’t know about you but that makes me feel like they’re just looking for any excuse to do it in the first place.
Um, do you disagree with them? Do you think the right to defend yourself without getting arrested is unimportant?
me at the moment
When you’re so clueless about the movement you identify with that you have to google “As __, how do I feel about ___”… well, you should take some time for reflection.

So my friend asked me to reply to this. Hmm, I could comment on the political side of these, but your views are so laughed at by antifeminists and feminists alike that there’s really no point in bothering.
I will comment on your poetry, though. First of all, these aren’t haiku. There’s nothing in the world that make these haiku. I assume you think that 5/7/5 syllable structure makes it a haiku (hint: it does not). But hell, some of these don’t even use 5/7/5 structure! Like the first one! What in the world makes you think they’re haiku? Art isn’t “pick any art form you know nothing about and break every single rule”. It isn’t artistic, it isn’t poetic, and it isn’t unique. It makes you look like an ignorant idiot. These poems have nothing to do with nature, they have no juxtapositions or any other form of cutting, they don’t demonstrate any sort of observation or revelation, and they aren’t in simple descriptive language. They’re nothing short of hateful garbage void of all form and creativity.
"Lick my clit, assholes" is not haiku. It’s about as worthwhile as the dog shit in my backyard.
Hello tumblr. I have a very important task to ask of y’all. See this guy here? yeah. he is scum. Fortunately, google+ has done us one service in making him have his real name be shown when he says crap like this. i went ahead and looked him up on facebook. He works at http://www.mckaynursery.com/ in Wisconsin. i want you to send them an email telling them just how much of a piece of trash this guy is. go ahead. do it. I wanna get this guy fired.
Wow, way to sink to their level.
You’re more garbage than he is.
they were rescued from a testing lab, they’ve never walked on grass before
I’m not saying that I’m an amazing actor but i HAVE won as many Oscars as Leonardo DiCaprio
let’s be honest we’re all just reblogging that as long as we still can
Some of y’all need to ship yourselves with some common sense
The next person I hear say “abortion is murder” is straight up getting punched
Hmm, I’m curious. Why do you say it isn’t?
Because its a fucking blob of cells. If destroying a blob of cells is murder than so is exfoliating your skin.
Well, exfoliating removes dead skin cells, so no idea what point you’re trying to make there.
Although all humans are just blobs of cells in the first place, so that’s also void. Is that seriously all you have…?
I am all for abortion, but I think pro choice people would make better arguments if they admit they are ending a potential life instead of saying it’s not killing anything. I think abortion is necessary because if the child lived, his/her future would most likely be shit, especially a child of a rape victim, not to mention the mom might not even be able to afford the child.
So do you believe it should be legal for unwanted born children to be killed as well? Since we’re deciding in advance that their lives will be shit anyways and that “shitty” lives aren’t worth living. Don’t forget also that they aren’t only a “potential” life; they’re a distinct being with separate genetic information from the mother.
Also, less than 1% of abortions are done in cases of rape/incest.
1% is still a number, so there will be children born there, and unwanted doesn’t really mean the parents can’t take care of the child. I don’t think abortion should be used as a form of birth control. If the parents are incapable of taking care of the child, then I can see it as an option, but if the parents can, then, not really. I guess it’s more like pro choice, but with exceptions.
For them, adoption can still be an option. It can be difficult, but it really isn’t worth killing someone to avoid inconvenience.
That’s true, the only inconvenience is the fact that adoption might not work in that no one adopts the child, and the child might live never knowing their parents. It’s a really complicated issue, to be honest.
My mom never knew her parents. Go ahead and tell her that she’d be better off dead. Want to e-mail her? Seriously, she’d appreciate it.
Okay, people do get over their problems, there are several exceptions to the abortion thing, but again, you never know how others will react to not knowing their parents. When it comes to adoption/abortion, it can go either way. Even babies conceived from rape can get over their past. But I feel they are more likely exceptions than not. I am sure there are still several children who feel empty without their parents. With using abortion as birth control, and to an extent, not being able to afford children, I can see where pro-lifers are coming from, however I still feel pro-choice when it comes to situations in which the mother and/or the baby can die.
Cases where the pregnancy can be deadly is an entirely different issue, of course. Because those are rather rare.
Would you consider the emptiness of not having parents to be worse than the emptiness of death?
The next person I hear say “abortion is murder” is straight up getting punched
Hmm, I’m curious. Why do you say it…
I’m pro-choice because it’s just that. A choice. There are some situations where an abortion is needed.
I doubt I would ever get one. But that choice needs to be there.
Plus making abortion illegal would open up a whole can of worms.
Work on making the adoption system better before doing anything about abortion.
Hmm, so would you be prolife if the adoption system were better?
Just unfriended some dude on Facebook for posting about the wage gap being a myth…
I’m sorry if reality oppresses you. Don’t worry, in the Tumblr hugbox, you’ll never have to face the real world. You can just pretend to be an oppressed baby forever.
Why feminism still is neccessary:
Youtube. I mean, thank whatever holy deity you believe in for Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Because her TEDtalk is the only women-positive thing in the top results when you search for “feminism” on youtube.
Why is there so much demonizing of feminism amongst the top search results on youtube?
Why is there so much demonizing of feminism in general?
All we want is equal opportunities for the sexes. That be a society that doesn’t blame the rape victim (female or male), better paternity rights or equal pay and respect in the workplace. Why does so many people seem to have a problem with this? Feminism is not a WOMENS ISSUE, it’s a peoples issue. So get onboard. I cant’t wrap my head around why people won’t, it’s too absurd. But at the same time it’s making me so angry. I need to know how to fight this, so I need to understand it. Are they scared? Have they been thought to hate women/feminists? Are they just angry and bitter and in need of something to aim their bitterness on, and feminism was conveniently there? If anyone can explain this to me, it would be greatly appreciated.
I shall now spam you with feminist stuff. Rejoice.
Hmm. If that’s what you actually want, it’d sure be good if you fought for it every once in a while.
Except you don’t.

Wow, sure is a good thing there’s no sexist wage gap, huh?
