LOL at the onion bit.
And damn straight men shouldnt be involved. It has nothing to do with them. Except as perpetrators.
Ha, ha, excellent, FCM! Flyers like these should get distributed to college girls on campuses, along with recommended readings such as Pornland by Gail Dines and even more radical feminist stuff.
LOL at the onions. Yep, one of the rare times a dude will cry genuine tears. The other times are when he gets caught at something and is right up the shitter.
I said on one of the many Facebutt threads, that if these lefty librul dudes were really genuine about the ‘slutwalk’ concept to end a rape culture, then they would be organising a massive dude walk, to denounce rape an rapists. But do they do that? Oh noes, we have ones like Hugo “herding cats” (presumably to the “cat house”?).
Sincerity Factor = Zero.
The really good thing about becoming an old, or middle aged woman, is that we have already sat through decades of these male lies and ‘promises’. Enough to see the pattern that they mean absolutely NONE of it at all. They do degrees in Insincerity. And the ‘good males’ are so grossly outnumbered by the bad ones, that they become thoroughly statistically insignificant.
Onions aside, the tears ain’t real.
Yeah, decades of observation DaveSquirrel…. and the whole point of advanced patriarchal capitalism is to divide generations… to compartmentalize music, advertising etc., to ensure that young women don’t want to learn from old women. It is a complete set-up. Blogging the truth with these great little graphics is a good way of getting the truth out there. Yes, good old leaflets on campus… charts, pictures…
So I see no change in men at all. None. So I agree, I think they are simply lying all the time, and women, being wishful thinkers want to believe the lies. Everytime I’ve confronted some stupid man, and said quite simply “I’m a separatist I have nothing in common with you and don’t want to waste my valuable time working with you,” they are shocked, they get very angry, they have no come backs. So THE ANSWER is for women being in solidarity with each other — whether it is conservative women or liberal women or radical women, we all know the score. Charts like this that damn all sides of the male machine get this point across very well.
As Andrea Dworkin said in Right Wing Women… conservative women just believe they cut the best deal for themselves within patriarchy. Servitude to one man, is better than being the common property of all men. Paraphrase there. But neither liberal nor conservative branches of the patriachal church address the fact that either deal is bad for women.
their “sympathy” for the cause runs exactly as deep as the dood gallus posted about today who is getting involved because hes sick of hearing women bitch about being raped. i imagine it gets in the way of his sexxxay (or something?) although i am sure the stories are really sexxxay in themselves. so theres that. theres just no way to lose, is there, when you are a male in rape culture? its all so sexy. the world is their sexual buffet.
PS. i tried a little mary daly-esque tactic in this graphic by calling attention to men and what they do but without really talking about them. that was the onion part. heh. she probably would talk about them even less, while revealing even more, but im new at this!
LOL, yes, Mary Daly would’ve said, “Who cares about men? Let’s talk about something else.”
As for men and tears, there’s a reason why we have the term “crocodile/alligator tears.”
Maggie, your idea is excellent. I’ve been doing similar things for years with putting up feminist slogans around the towns I visit but actually distributing flyers like this would have a much greater impact, especially with resources for people who agree to check out.
start saving your pennies and get copying sisters.
I’m also totally enraged that so many cities have let dudes like this organize their supposed “anti-violence against women” marches. This is a total outrage and yet again another example of why if men really want to help us out they’ll shut the fuck up and let us do it.
i think it would be excellent if all women who worked in offices used their employers copying machines for this task. and printers and postage and envelopes too. there are a LOT of women who work in offices, and most of them are probably pissed as hell. their male bosses are probably harassing them to boot.
LOL! Are you out “cyber bullying” people with Venn diagrams again, FCM? : )
yes thats my thang! 🙂
