My love life in a nutshell.
Though Mean Girls was rated PG-13 for “sexual content, language, and some teen partying,” that was a rating Paramount had to fight for, says Waters. “We had lots of battles with the ratings board on the movie. There was the line, ‘Amber D’Lessio gave a blow job to a hot dog,’ which eventually became ‘Amber D’Lessio made out with a hot dog.’ Which is somehow weirder! That’s the thing we found: When you’re trying to make a joke obey the rules and not use any bad words, it can actually become seamier, even.” Still, there were some things that Waters simply refused to change. “The line in the sand that I drew was the joke about the wide-set vagina. The ratings board said, ‘We can’t give you a PG-13 unless you cut that line.’ We ended up playing the card that the ratings board was sexist, because Anchorman had just come out, and Ron Burgundy had an erection in one scene, and that was PG-13. We told them, ‘You’re only saying this because it’s a girl, and she’s talking about a part of her anatomy. There’s no sexual context whatsoever, and to say this is restrictive to an audience of girls is demeaning to all women.’ And they eventually had to back down.”
40% of domestic abuse victims are male
Feminism fights gender roles, gender norms. Gender roles say that men aren’t allowed to be hurt, emotional, and god forbid they get beat up by women. Feminists don’t want that for men. That’s saying that all the “stereotypes” of femininity are weak and not to be desired. Feminist goals would allow for men to get treatment and help at abuse centers.
then explain why feminists threatened an all male domestic abuse shelter with bomb threats until they shut themselves down. I am also fairly sure afterwards, feminists purchased it and turned it into an all women’s shelter.
Yo, feminists fought to close the only male shelter within fifty miles of my area, which directly contributed to my brother’s death at the hands of his abusive wife.
So don’t even try to tell me that feminists care about men. Because in the majority of cases, that’s not true.
If feminists want to keep claiming they “help men too”, they really need to step their game up.
I love how feminism fights “violence against women” directly, but when it comes to men, it’s just “we’re, uh, fighting gender roles!” Because they know men aren’t being fought for directly. And even the ones that do claim there’s direct activism almost never provide examples.
Also, many domestic violence policies basically amount to “the man is the abuser, and the woman was just defending herself”. You’re not going to fix that by just addressing women’s gender roles.
Also, “abuse is violence against women”. Sound familiar?
