Can you imagine how different tumblr would be if people kept their opinions to themselves like in real life.
It would become a ghost town and you know it.
Nah. Tumblr two or three years ago was pretty awesome because all…
RIGHT? Every chick and dude I followed that was into band shit turned super feminist. I think it’s mostly cause a lot of people on this site try to get as progressive as they think they can be. What do you think?
Well through my understandings everyone was always out to get new followers and gain more followers so those people followed the herd and began to change up to maintain popularity.. I remember exactly a year ago I noticed everyone on my dash getting feminist as hell, reblogging obvious satire post, bad statistics, white boys are trash post, fuck men post and all these other sjw post about cultural appropriation,all men are rapist post.
It got to the point where I had to do a mass unfollow and call certain people out I even once lost a damn near 50 followers in one day for speaking out against it all..it’s like many teens on this site are just gullible and easily influenced by the next popular thing or the next progressive way of thinking without actually thinking about it..some just get sucked into it through the science of persuasion.
That’s actually very true. Most people did just follow the trends. I also think it’s pressures from a college environment and since they are always out to try new things and are quick to believe everything their peers tell them, they jumped at this.
I’m glad I found people in this community like us tho because tbh I was the same and argued with people a lot.

I wish Batman was depicted like this more often. Many of his villains are mentally ill and victims of tragic circumstances, it would be nice to see him try to help them as much as he helps the people they put in danger because of their problems.
I tear up every time I watch this show. “I had a bad day too, once.”
Best version of Batman. Best version of Harley.
I prefer Batman when he wasn’t a ultra-paranoid nutjob.
This this one thousand times this! What I freaking hate is that that crazy, joyless version of Batman is considered the “default” or even “better” version because of stuff like shitty writers (oh hi there Frank Miller) and the Nolanverse movies, which in themselves are a deconstruction of that version of Batman. Nolanverse Batman is unsustainable. Nolanverse Batman is completely without a lot of his support network for the majority of the trilogy. Nolanverse Batman pushes people away and ends up having to stop being a superhero in order to reclaim his humanity. That is practically skywriting saying “comics Batman is obviously different to this, this is an interesting AU.” I truly love the Nolanverse movies, I think they’re brilliant, but god do I hate it when they’re misinterpreted into comics canon. Also, Nolanverse Batman isn’t full-on crazy joyless Batman either; he quips, he teases people, he fucking smiles.
Bruce Wayne’s Batman is one of, quite possibly foremost of, my favourite superheroes, but not for any of the reasons that seem to be glorified about him in those psychotic versions. Yes, he gets obsessive. Yes, he is an utter control freak. And those are his flaws, not his strengths.
You wanna talk to me about Batman’s strengths? Talk to me about the fact that he’s the adopted single father of five kids (yes I’m counting Damian because the way he was brought into the family is analogous to adoption).
Talk to me about the fact half of his information networks are made up of ex-cons he’s rehabilitated into education programs where they flourish, and the other half are Arkham inmates who he acknowledges as the leaders in their field. Talk to me about the fact that most of the time, they’re willing to give him the information he needs.
Talk to me about the fact that he became a superhero out of the self-awareness that the trauma of losing his parents so mentally scarred him that he knows he can never be well-adjusted, but he wants to use his warped perspective to do some good so no child will ever have to endure what he did again.
Talk to me about the fact that he became a governor on the board of Arkham Asylum not to persecute but to protect the inmates, because even though they perpetrate utterly abhorrent acts they are still people with rights and even the capability to one day reform.
Talk to me about how many times he’s paid for Harvey’s surgery, and the fact that Harvey still refers to Bruce as his one friend who’s always stood by him.
Talk to me about him sponsoring Harley’s parole and laughed as she backflipped with joy.
Talk to me about the fact that, because he knows he can get stupidly stubborn and out-of-control, he surrounds himself with people who refuse to take his crap (Alfred, Babs, Selina, Dick, Jim, Leslie, etc) because he knows sometimes he needs to be stopped.
The real Batman is not some psychotic sadist who hates people and never smiles.
The real Batman is a grumpy socially awkward dad with badass friends, plenty of issues but also a moral compass, a strong belief in human rights and the ability to reform… with a soft spot for people as maladjusted as him.
Accept no substitutes.
Reblogging this again for the glorious commentary. This is Batman. THIS.
I like my Batman with a human-side, yes.
youd of said no to the cuddling one i sent ian and zach so i chose a special one for u
I’m not sure what this is, but I felt obliged to post this submission.
It’s like Deerkin you idiot
I got that, I get that so much its lost all meaning.
I was referring to the in soviet Russia style “You of said no to the cuddling”
And I realize that’s just me reading it wrong, but I have a thing for Ivan jokes.
I just fucking love Russia. Not a single fuck given in that entire country.
Holy shit, this is the greatest
Okay, so, I’m running on the assumption that people are taking this seriously. If not, my bad.
THIS IS INCREDIBLY NOT WHAT HAPPENED
This woman’s name is Amy, and she owns a bakery/restaurant called Amy’s Baking Company. Not only do they serve the customers store-bought food under the pretense of it being gourmet and house-made, but they treat their customers absolutely terribly. This woman once chased two guys out of her restaurant because they had decided to leave after waiting 2 HOURS FOR THEIR FOOD. SHE WAS PISSED BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T PAY FOR IT. IT’S ALSO PROBABLY GOOD TO MENTION THAT SHE DOESN’T LET THE SERVERS HAVE TIPS, WHICH IF YOU’VE NEVER WORKED AT A RESTAURANT, MEANS THAT THEY GET PAYED FAR BELOW MINIMUM WAGE. AT THE TIME OF THE KITCHEN NIGHTMARES EPISODE, SHE AND HER HUSBAND OPENLY CONFESSED TO FIRING OVER A HUNDRED EMPLOYEES IN FIVE MONTHS. GORDON RAMSAY GAVE UP ON HER.
THIS WOMAN IS NOT A FEMINIST HERO
SHE IS A BATSHIT CRAZY FUCKING PSYCHOPATH
IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME, WATCH THE EPISODE ON YOUTUBE.
Ok sorry for commenting but this woman really is crazy. I went there once and she chewed mmy dad out for “being incredibly rude to her and her husband” and things along that linebuT THIS FUCKING WOMAN OK. SHE WAS YELLING AT HER EMPLOYEE TO WORK FASTER AND TO STOP BEING AN IDIOT AND SHE WAS TREATING THEM BADLY SO WHAT SOES MY DAD DO? HE LOOKS AT HER AND SAYS “STOP BEING A BITCH HE’S WORKING AS HARD AS HE CAN GIVEN THE WORKING CONDITIONS IN SCOTTSDALE OK?” AND SHE WENT OFF ON MY DAD BECAUSE SHE THOUGHT HE WAS BEING A DOUCHE AND NO, NO NO NO HELL NO HE WAS NOT. YOU DON’T PUT YOUR EMPLOYEES DOWN IN FRONT OF CUSTOMERS EVEN IF YOU’RE PISSED.
how can people actually believe this holy shit. Go watch the kitchen nightmares episode she is fucking psycho I swear to god.
I remember this episode. He literally walked out cuz there was no hope in them. I’m surprised nothing has happened to the restaurant itself after being exposed like that.
I went to the mall, and a little girl called me a terrorist.
My name is Ela. I am seventeen years old. I am not Muslim, but my friend told me about her friend being discriminated against for wearing a hijab. So I decided to see the discrimination firsthand to get a better understanding of what Muslim women go through.
My friend and I pinned scarves around our heads, and then we went to the mall. Normally, vendors try to get us to buy things and ask us to sample a snack. Clerks usually ask us if we need help, tell us about sales, and smile at us. Not today. People, including vendors, clerks, and other shoppers, wouldn’t look at us. They didn’t talk to us. They acted like we didn’t exist. They didn’t want to be caught staring at us, so they didn’t look at all.
And then, in one store, a girl (who looked about four years old) asked her mom if my friend and I were terrorists. She wasn’t trying to be mean or anything. I don’t even think she could have grasped the idea of prejudice. However, her mother’s response is one I can never forgive or forget. The mother hushed her child, glared at me, and then took her daughter by the hand and led her out of the store.
All that because I put a scarf on my head. Just like that, a mother taught her little girl that being Muslim was evil. It didn’t matter that I was a nice person. All that mattered was that I looked different. That little girl may grow up and teach her children the same thing.
This experiment gave me a huge wakeup call. It lasted for only a few hours, so I can’t even begin to imagine how much prejudice Muslim girls go through every day. It reminded me of something that many people know but rarely remember: the women in hijabs are people, just like all those women out there who aren’t Muslim.
People of Tumblr, please help me spread this message. Treat Muslims, Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Taoists, etc., exactly the way you want to be treated, regardless of what they’re wearing or not wearing, no exceptions. Reblog this. Tell your friends. I don’t know that the world will ever totally wipe out prejudice, but we can try, one blog at a time.
coming up next on white people solve racism
muslim women dont need your white saviour attitude, you might now finally realise what it’s like to be excluded from society because of a piece of garment but you’re never going to experience it in the way we do.
she literally worded this so well and so honestly and tried so hard not to be rude, she just tried to understand what you go through. she’s not trying to be a saviour, she’s trying to raise awareness. she never said she’d solve anything or experience it like you do. stop doing exactly what other people do to you and shut down someones ideas just because of their color or religion or anything. this is a valid and completely pure hearted thing.
It’s funny how people act like white people are the biggest douchebags, and then act like total asshats themselves, huh?
She did this to get a GLIMPSE into the shit Muslim women are put through. She never claimed total understanding; in fact she said that she “can’t even begin to imagine how much prejudice Muslim girls go through every day.” She ADMITTED that she doesn’t know everything these women go through, and yet she’s STILL attacked? I cannot fathom why it’s deemed “okay” to be prejudiced against white people, even when we try to understand what it is people of other ethnicities/skin tones/nationalities/religions/etc go through. If you want, we can stop trying to understand and let everyone wallow in their self-pity.
Welcome to tumblr
Fuck you for trying to help us prevent rape! What’s next, helping us when we’re in danger? When we had an accident? Damn you patriarchy!
Why is it easier to sit on your arse criticising four young men who went out of their way to create something that women can use to defend themselves against rapists, then to do actually anything yourself?
Jessica Valenti is just upset that this invention, even if all it does is prevent ONE rape, will have already done more to prevent rape then her useless arse ever will: it probably wiped that smug look right off her race and that’s why she’s so threatened by it: notice how there is nothing in her sorry article where she offers solutions: just counterproductive whining.
It actually makes me sick: she’s just another pathetic malcontent who is just threatened by four young men doing something besides bitching and she is trying to tear them apart based on nothing more but her own egotism and cultural munchousen by proxy. She wants women to stay vunerable to rapists because then she’d be out of a job. It’s actually in her best interests for women to be at the mercy of rapists because it’s an uroborus: (well more a snake screaming into it’s own arsehole): raper no raping does jack shit to stop people who know rape is bad but rape anyway from raping women. Women still get raped, she profits. Cut down on the number of women being raped, and she loses relevance.
All Rape Culture hysteria is a moral panic. Moral panics are beneficial to the fearmongers who generate them.

At first I though this was a joke
Don’t ignore this Tumblr
Yet they still do even when it’s right in their face.
Men are physically able to defend themselves, women are not. NOT THE SAME
"Women are helpless! In every situation a man can defend himself against a woman!"
And here we have a feminist removing agency from all women so she can justify and condone domestic violence against men.
Stamp your foot and pout as much as you want. What you just said is disgusting to both men and women.
bergauk said: We DO understand. But as a guy it's really fucking frustrating to here "yeah but women have this as an issue" whenever a guy tries to relate to them in even the slightest way. Feminism is not about one-upping every guy who says something about oppression of men. It is about everyone having equal rights. Those who forget this fact are what is wrong with feminism.
actually you dont, its frustrating when men act like they’re trying to “relate” but are really just trying to take the focus off of our problems (i bet its frustrating to HEAR about, haha imagine how frustrating it is to have those issues)
it just sounds like “well men have it hard too :(“
like if you’re talking about male rape survivors and the injustices they face (like not being taken seriously cause “men cant be raped”) and someone comes along and says “well female rape survivors have it WAY worst” like i can see how thats a problem, BUT i have never seen a woman try to derail a discussion about men’s issues under patriarchy
however i have seen many men come out of the woodworks to make it about themselves
feminism is about women, it is about dismantling the patriarchy (which is the thing hurting men, remember, its not us) it is so WE can be equals to men, its not so men can be equal to women (ykno cause we’re hardly seen as human beings)
if i wanna make a post about how annoying it is to talk about feminism with dudes, then let me, dont make a peep, dont try to steer the conversation towards men
"actually you dont“’
:its frustrating when men act like they’re trying to “relate” but are really just trying to take the focus off of our problems”
It must be very frustrating for a spoilt brat such as yourself to hear that you are not the only one with problems, and that as much as you try to gender things like rape, domestic violence, sexual harassment and assault into problems only women have, men actually experience as well, and part of the reason these problems are often ignored to the point that in many parts of the world, rape is defined by forced penetration of a woman by a man (meaning women who are raped by other women are also legally ignored, not just men who are raped by women)
"(i bet its frustrating to HEAR about, haha imagine how frustrating it is to have those issues)"
I bet it’s frustrating to be told “you’re not the only one with issues”. Hahaha imagine how frustrating it is to have those issues and to be told you don’t have those issues by people who have no personal experience with it besides victimhood circlejerking on tumblr. ”What happened to this woman also happened to me because I have a vagina! I understand it better then a man who has been raped because vagina hive mind!”
"it just sounds like “well men have it hard too :(“
I’m pretty sure a homeless teenage boy who was thrown out of his home for being gay and was molested by his uncle as a child and is now HIV positive due to having to turn tricks to survive has had it harder then your prissyarse ever has, Princess. You think because you have a vagina you are automatically a victim? Wow, nobody removes agency from women quite like feminists do.
"like if you’re talking about male rape survivors and the injustices they face (like not being taken seriously cause “men cant be raped”) and someone comes along and says “well female rape survivors have it WAY worst” like i can see how thats a problem, BUT i have never seen a woman try to derail a discussion about men’s issues under patriarchy "
Really? You wanna play that card? Let me enlighten you.
(for reference this is the feminist who claims she got PTSD off twitter and claims she will get any military member who objects to this fired, and is boasting of having reported one such person to his commanding officer)
And if you would like, I can get you some screncaps of the feminist who told me “As a straight cis female, gay men getting catfished on Grindr by straight women doesn’t bother me anywhere near as much as it would if straight men were catfishing lesbians because gay men have so much privilege in society and straight women are so oppressed” and when on with a long rant about how straight women catfishing gay men for their sexual amusement and inability to respect the fact that gay men are not interested in women because patriarchy women are so oppressed for their sexuality because slut shaming and patriarchy and apparently all the times gay men have been spat at been screamed at or even murdered for simply holding hands in public don’t real only lady feels.
Also if you google Janet Hardy you will find her speech where she claims it’s fine for women such as herself to appropriate and reclaim a slur against gay men, because calling a woman a “girl” is apparently as offensive as calling a gay man a faggot, and since nobody gets upset about her using the word girl to describe herself, then it’s okay for her to call herself a faggot because her feels as a lady > gay men’s reals.
You have never seen women trying to derail men’s issues under the guise of the Patriarchy?
"however i have seen many men come out of the woodworks to make it about themselves"
"Homophobia is the fear that gay men will treat you the way you treat women". I can give you plenty more examples of women trying to make issues concerning gay men all about straight women instead.
"feminism is about women, it is about dismantling the patriarchy (which is the thing hurting men, remember, its not us)"
So the Duluth Method is just the patriarchy? The feminists who sent death threats and harassment to Erin Pizzey and her family and killed her dog because her setting up shelters for men angered and upset them so much, as well as her suggestion that domestic violence happened to both men and women? Just patriarchy?
How about comments like this?
"it is so WE can be equals to men, its not so men can be equal to women (ykno cause we’re hardly seen as human beings)"
All women are hardly seen as human beings? Please stop playing the world’s smallest violin: no one is impressed by you projecting your victim complex onto over half the population of Planet Earth.
"if i wanna make a post about how annoying it is to talk about feminism with dudes, then let me, dont make a peep, dont try to steer the conversation towards men"
Translation: “Wah wah wah I wanna wallow in self pity, don’t you dare try to trash my pity party by pointing out I’m not the only one with problems, don’t you dare, I have it so hard because I can’t take other peoples problems and make them all about myself I need feminism wah wah the patriarchy needs to put me on a pedestal and indulge me why can’t you men indulge me like I’m a precocious toddler”
Acting like a prissy little brat is why nobody takes feminism seriously anymore. You ended a note as infantile as the one you begun with.
