This is literally a Tumblr classroom.
This movie was Feminist drivel and that’s why I have to pretend I didn’t like the poem she wrote about Heath Ledger.
Sending this as a Submission since I can’t do links in Asks. On the topic of Male Contraceptive Pills, there’s at least one case of the pill being blocked by protests and lack of support from U.S. Feminists.
From around 5:30 the discuss the reason this pill was prevented from being released, prior to that is discussion about the tests that were carried out and the fact that there were no negative effects observed (beyond the intended TEMPORARY infertility) during somewhere in the vicinity of 200 tests.
The reason given for Feminists objecting so strenuously to the very idea of Male Contraceptive Pills was that it would supposedly take away a woman’s “right to decide whether or not they have children”, and that men would only ever lie about it in order to have sex and intentionally get women pregnant and leave them with babies.
I get the feeling some of these objections were, as with a lot of this ideological rhetoric, coming from an expectation that men would unilaterally behave exactly the same way as these women do.
I think one of my biggest problems with feminism is the patronising nature of many feminists.
It’s like as soon as they hear I’m anti-feminist they decide it’s necessary to bombard me with tales of the patriarchy, the wage gap and rape culture. Like I have never heard of these things before. Like I am unaware of the things feminism talks about. Like I haven’t given any consideration to my position, like I haven’t done any research, like I have just randomly decided to call myself anti-feminist with no rational thought behind my position.
It’s like they think I have never lived in the world. It’s like they think I am not aware of the world around me, or that I can’t think for myself. It’s like they think they have to spoon feed me.
And the worst part is that it is actually incredibly misogynistic, as they seem to assume that a woman can’t think for herself without feminism.
