Pro MRA. Pro Feminism. Socialist.
If you want TW's added just float me a message.
Swearing will be common and is not a sign of hostility.
“Lots of MRAs like to pretend that they care about male victims of domestic violence. But the Men’s Rights movement hasn’t done shit for them. And here, I think, is why: too many MRAs are less interested in helping male victims of domestic violence than they are in providing excuses and justifications for male abusers.”
The Men’s Rights movement hasn’t done shit for male domestic violence victims, you say? Really now? Did you bother doing any research on the topic before you decided to make your post? MRAs have founded men’s rights shelters, started men’s helplines, and have fought for changes to domestic violence policy that ignores male victims. As an example, Earl Silverman, an abuse survivor himself, created a men’s shelter out of his own home, funding it out of his own pockets. When he ran out of money, in part because the Canadian government refused to help fund him like they do other shelters, he eventually committing suicide in an attempt to draw attention to the issue. It’s not like they only help men, either - Erin Pizzey, now a significant MRA spokesperson, founded one of the first women’s shelters in the UK.
In the end, the efforts of MRAs to help male abuse victims are largely invisible for a number of reasons. First, there simply aren’t all that many MRAs. It’s easier for larger movements like feminism to cause noticeable change, because they have strength in numbers and often major government funding. Second, and perhaps more importantly, MRAs are still struggling to raise awareness about men’s issues. For the most part society still doesn’t even acknowledge that male victims exist, let alone that they deserve equal help and support rather than victim- and gender-blaming. Third, feminism’s tendency to constantly erase male victims at every opportunity isn’t exactly helping the situation, as it’s led to them directly opposing virtually every attempt on the part of MRAs to act on these issues.

@DarkMatterRage performs “White Fetish”
I have a confession.
I have this insatiable addiction to coffee.
fair trade coffee
fair trade coffee in NPR membership mugs
I want to wake up to that smell next to me. That and freshly pressed New Yorkers and sweaty yoga mats….
See the truth is
I’m a Snow Queen.
I just have this, this thing
For white people
Can’t help it.
It’s the way they eat steak for dinner. I know I’m a vegan, but I’d make exceptions
You know I’ve heard that white men have huge…
I’ve heard they’re really good…
Once, a white woman asked me where I was really from, then told me she was visiting India with her non-profit, and I thought ‘Oh, tell me more, oh take me with you.’
The last white boy I slept with was so excited when I said he was sexy like I was the first person to say that like ever in the entire world. You have to understand I like it that way
like your veins are showing
like your skin is bleaching out your clothes
like your SPF level is 3000.
It just turns me on
Like I would love to cuddle in the ugliest sweaters and listen to David Sedaris with you. I want us to rent one apartment in Brooklyn and another in the Mission and stare at the same Che-shaped constellation at night time. I want you to pick me up on your way home from an unpaid internship. I want you to tell me about the hip-hop you jam to in your Prius. I want you to talk to me about your gap year.
I want to map the lines on your palms to the lines you drew in Africa.
I want to get my name tattooed on your arms in Sanskrit, and then Chinese. I want us to make black friends together. I want us to have brunch with them.
I want us to get gay married in San Francisco. I want us to pick up our tribal print tuxedos from American Apparel. I want us to vote for Obama, and name our children hope and post-race.
And you will show me all the women of color artists that make you feel like a diva.
And you will awkwardly gyrate me without your hips.
And later you will take nude photos of me like you did when you randomly selected me in the airport security line. I loved that…
And when we couchsurf on our first honeymoon night
I will call you master because colonialism never had a safe word
You will whisper tenderly in my ear
Don’t worry, I’m not racist like them
…then fuck me like you are.
Can you imagine being in a relationship with someone like this? Someone who hates you this much and resents you for their own actions and projects onto you more then a planetarium ?
Don’t worry, I’ve seen a screenshot of her twitter poetry, apparently the only person she wants to truly spend the rest of her life with is her grandma…
Id really like to show her some of my sources on the British empire considering how half of what shes writing is very poor interpretation of history
We always ask “what would Jesus do?”
When Jesus found tyrants and tax collectors in his house, he didn’t sit around and do nothing, he didn’t call for they’re impeachment
He frickin’ drove them out with a whip!
render unto ceaser
What the tax collectors as well as people in our government were and are doing is taking stuff that ISNT theirs. I understand it’s good to pay the taxes put there for good, but that’s not the case in today’s government. Your supposed to willfully give your money, not have it forcefully taken from you.
If you dont pay rent to your landlord the bailiffs come
think of tax as rent
