continue to circle around the issue and accuse all men of being rapists or potential rapists until they kill themselves

This comic is such bullshit.

The issue is not that men get raped and women don’t care, the issue is that anytime women talk about rape, men want to butt in and silence women with “But men get raped toooooo” instead of starting their own damn conversations.

Way to demonize women for no reason and spread lies.

Um…no. 

Sorry but the idea that rape is and can only be a one gender issue if fucking ridiculous. What this comic is saying is that when ever the issue of rape comes up, and how we can prevent it or help victim’s and what not many people focus almost exclusively on women and how it effects women and what we can do to help women. That’s stupid because rape does not discriminate nor should we. We can’t, as human beings, sit there and favor one gender over the other when it comes to this crime. We can’t act like one needs more help over the other, that one is more important and more deserving of care, love and compassion. 

Men want to ‘butt in’ because they need to. They need to force themselves into the public view just to be noticed. NO ONE brushes off rape accusations when it’s made by a woman. No self respecting person that is (because I’m sure their are horrible stories of it but they are a vast minority).

If there is a rape culture…it’s a rape culture that belittles and effects men. Not women. Because 9 times out of 10 THIS is what men are told when they even attempt to bring up this issue. 

You are MISSING THE POINT.

The overwhelming majority of rape victims are WOMEN AND GIRLS.

The overwhelming majority of rapists are MEN.

Yes, rape happens to men and boys and it’s terrible when it does and they deserve support too.  However, interrupting a discussion about female rape victims to make it about men is a fucked up and evil thing to do.  That is why the comic is bullshit and why you missed the point entirely.

Most of the time when men bring up male victims of rape, they’re not having their own discussions, they’re doing it to silence women, to take the focus off of women, and make everything about themselves.

Rape culture is derailing women talking about rape with “But men get raped tooooooooooooooo!”

The man in this comic could have easily started his own dialogue about male victims of rape, but he didn’t.  Instead he interrupted the woman, and that’s exactly what men usually do.  Then the woman is portrayed in a sexist way as a raving bitch who doesn’t care about anyone but herself, which is exactly how women are always portrayed anytime they don’t cut off any discussion about themselves to make it all about men.

A STUPID COMIC DRAWN BADLY BY A STUPID FUCKING DUDE DEMANDING TO BE THE CENTER OF ATTENTION REGARDING SOMETHING DONE TO ALMOST ALL WOMEN BY ALMOST ALWAYS MEN. FUCK OFF WITH THIS WHINY CRAP.

tumblr's understand of radical feminism is about the same as the republican party's understanding of radical socialism

this made me scream with laughter, omfg yes

for real though whenever i heard the words “radfem” escape anyone’s mouth on the internet, i would hear 100 diff definitions and they were all wrong. it is literally a scapegoat for misogynists and antifems.

Yes. Radfem means evil hate-thing that hates all the things on the internet. But if these people think like this on the internet, it means they think like this off-line. So really, the majority of the world has got radfems wrong…

But you know, who has time to ask us questions to see if all the nasty rumors are true when they can just sit back and continue making up lies for fun.

It’s easier to hate women than it is to talk and listen to us.

To that end, the first point: Antis need to LISTEN to sex workers. Actively listen. Listen to understand. Listen to each and every sex worker who speaks, and believe us about our own experiences. Yes, this includes listening to the most privileged sex workers—the independent, high-priced,…

i can’t listen to sex workers because the majority of them are busy being raped, trafficked, abused, subjugated, crushed, etc. and are unable to speak out.

why would i listen to the 1% who is intent on spreading some sort of maddening glorification of the sex industry…? i want to listen to the girls that have been coerced and raped for weeks on end since they were 14, the girls who DON’T love their career, the 92% (uri.edu) of women who want to LEAVE prostitution in the US and who DON’T love it and DON’T find it fulfilling…

why would i listen to the small minority who is intent on painting some weird skewed image of “the majority of sex workers being in the middle”? why would i write off such a LARGE majority for a teeny tiny minority? 

the better question is: why are sex posi feminists more adamant about silencing sexual critic then they are about the abuses going on in their very own industry?

Found! First Earth-Size Planet That Could Support Life

For the first time, scientists have discovered an Earth-size alien planet in the habitable zone of its host star, an “Earth cousin” that just might have liquid water and the right conditions for life.

The newfound planet, called Kepler-186f, was first spotted by NASA’s Kepler space telescope and circles a dim red dwarf star about 490 light-years from Earth. While the host star is dimmer than Earth’s sun and the planet is slightly bigger than Earth, the positioning of the alien world coupled with its size suggests that Kepler-186f could have water on its surface, scientists say. You can learn more about the amazing alien planet find in a videoproduced by Space.com.
