|men get into something not aimed at their gender:||get special titles like "brony." recognition by creators. heralded for defying gender appeal. get documentary.|
|women get into something not aimed at their gender:||not real fans. probably secret friend zone warriors deadset on erasing men from the human race. get insulting demeaning memes and sexual harassment.|
I WAS GOING TO GO FOR A BIKE RIDE BUT NOOOOO
Here comes a storm, as soon as I step out the door!
ps uh i feel like that really only applies to cis men
if you’re a cis man, you can’t have a role in feminism that’s equal to the role played by women
if you consider yourself genderless and aren’t comfortable with being labeled as a cis man than that’s another story and i feel like you can definitely be an active part in feminism as long as you really don’t have any of the hangups that many cis men seem to have
i don’t know if i’m explaining this right
basically, cis men in particular need to shut up, that’s what i’m saying here
feminism is not only a movement for women, it’s a movement to combat gender stereotypes and maybe even many of the concept of gender itself (at least, that is how i see it)
so realistically, cis men cannot really have a place in this, because they are the clear oppressive group, and benefit largely from the current setup
especially white cis men with money
that’s why there always seems to be a lot of “hate” for wealthy white cis men, i’m just saying
it’s not hate it’s just…..
think of it like…how is a king going to discuss with his subjects how they should overthrow him? do you understand what i’m saying?
