It's Only Sexist When Men Do It

First of all, I'M NOT SEXIST! HONEST! Before I actually get to ranting, I want to share two things with you, first is a comic from the fantastic webcomic SMBC (Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal) which is the property of Zach Weiner, Zach you have a button that let's people embed comics, so I assume you'll be cool with this. The second is a video from Youtube, that I actually got from someone elses blog, it wasn't a rant about sexism they did though, so I only stole half the idea >_> (Oh the video contains a HUGE amount of swearing really, the guy is really angry, don't say I didn't warn you!) 



Now that that's out the way, I want to also say that this could offend you if you're a girl, maybe even if you aren't. Jesse I'm not sure on your views on sexism, but I intend to rant and bitch about how it's a double standard, if you, or anyone else, doesn't agree, I recommend not reading. But hey, maybe now I'll finally get some hatemail! I don't know why I want hatemail so much. Oh well. On with the ranting.
Like the comic and the video show, sexism is really a double standard. A man had his penis cut off and a talk show of women are just laughing about it. One of them did eventually say that it was a bit sexist to be laughing at it, no one would be laughing if it was a man who cut off a womans parts because she wanted a divorce (which was the reason the dude lost his man meat), in fact, a lot of people would rise up, and beat the heck out of any man that did. This was met by Sharon Osbourne (I'll leave my views on that harpy out of this, maybe another time) said that it was different, it was somehow okay that a man lost his penis but not for a woman to be hurt like that. IT IS NOT OKAY, IT IS NO DIFFERENT AT ALL. How is it different? How is it okay? The short simple answer is one I've already given, it isn't. It isn't okay, it isn't cool, and it shouldn't be cool for this to happen to a man, when no one wants it to happen to a woman.


In the video, the guy says that in Russia (though he admits he doesn't know if it's true) a woman who was robbed actually beat down the guy who did it (cool) and then locked him up and kept him as a sex slave, raping him, for 3 days (not cool). This woman now has fans all over facebook, and is regarded as a hero of the female race. She isn't, she's a violent rapist, and something should be done about her. I bet one reason no one cares is because all the feminists say that men are sex starved beasts, and it's impossible for a man to not want sex. It is. If a man had tied a woman up and raped her for 3 days, would we celebrate his victory for the male race? No, we'd be the crap out of him, make him suffer, and watch as he slowly became nothing more than a bloodstain on our boots. 


I would consider myself a feminist, I'm all for equal rights, but we've gone past equal rights now, the ball is in the womans court, they can say it isn't, but it is. A woman can do anything she wants to a man, but if a man so much as thinks it, he's a violent psycho and needs to be attacked for the monster he is. 


There are also cases where women can get away with murder if their husband is abusive. I'm not saying women deserve to get beat, God no, no one deserves that, but to get away with murder because of it? That's not justice, that's murder. Plain and simple. She might be regarded as a hero in the womens prison, but that's where she belongs. Men get beaten, men get abused by woman too, but does anyone care? Of course not. They're men, let's remember they're nothing but sex mad beasts. 


Like I said, I'm all for women's rights, I'm all for equal pay and opportunities, I'm all for women getting what they deserve, what I'm against is stuff like this, double standards, hypocrisy, things that do the women's cause a lot more harm than good. It's fine to want to give women rights, but don't forget men have them too. We men have learnt from the past, not all of us want to put a woman down, don't treat us like we do. There are good men out there, some would consider me living proof.
Well, they would until they read this >_>

  1. I think the first two paragraphs after the video are pretty much true and I don't really understand, how would you piss someone off with those. Other than beating the shit out of that rapist. That's kinda overreacting, but whatever.
    I don't know, how you can be feminist though. The feminism is the cause of this reverse standards nonsense. It does not help at all. It demands all rights and no responsibilities.

  2. I'm all for feminism too but I agree that some of it can be a little one sided; as you stated, the Russian rapist woman who's now a hero.

    Also, I drive a fast, bright red sports car... but I also drive a big, old, crappy family sedan... so do I have a tiny penis, or a gigantic one...?

  3. I have to agree. There are so many double standards when it comes to things like sexism and racism. Some of the stuff that I read about leaves me with my face dangerously close to my palm. Eugh.

  5. Take the amount of time that women around the world have been oppressed. It will take at least that amount of time to erode the double standard.

  9. I agree, and that provision passes over. Equality is a good thing between genders, but that double standard exists in western society because of how repressed women have been over the years. But, that thing about the Talk? Really pisses me off. Because at it's core, if you are about gender equality, it's not about a man having his dick cut off. It's about a person being mutilated.

  17. Whoa!! Woman rapist?? At the risk of sounding ignorant, is that ACTUALLY possible?!!?

    I kind of agree with you. Then again, coming from a place where sexism and chauvinism in particular are such a commonplace, I find it a little hard to completely agree though!!

    1. Yes it is possible for a woman to rape a man. It IS possible for a man to not want sex, and an erection is not a man saying yes to sex, the same way that a woman getting wet or erect nipples are not a woman saying yes. There are rapists who make sure their victims orgasm, but that doesn't make the rape any better, that doesn't count as consent because the woman's body wanted it, she herself did not.

      /rant over.

      It is a bad situation you find yourself in, but that means you can and should fight for more equal rights.

  18. Well...I'm not someone who should be talking about this sort of thing. It seems like men have all the power from my perspective. And I know that economic studies have shown that men make more money doing the exact same jobs for the exact same amount of time with the exact same education than women. And statistically, there are more male serial killers AND rapists than women, as well as more men who abuse their spouses or significant other.

    That being said, committing any of those acts is wrong, regardless of sex. That's true equality.

    Of course, rape is wrong, regardless of who is committing the crime. Murder is wrong, regardless of your excuse. Self-defense on the other hand...well, that's where things get sticky, isn't it?

    A lot of people talk about wanting to kill the man who raped me, though. And while that isn't what I want, I can understand their desire. I'm sure that is what abused women think and feel when they kill their tormentors.

    But murder is still wrong. Cutting off someone's body parts because they ask for a divorce is petty and stupid. But...I can see why they laughed, too. It's a common joke that you wish you could do that when a man asks to leave you for another woman. However, ACTING on such a desire is WRONG and not funny.

    The part of your post I agree with, without question, is that women get away with SAYING horrible, sexist things about men far more often than men do. And that isn't fair or right. And I don't think the woman who kept a man as her sex slave should be lauded as a hero, but serial killers are lauded as heroes by thousands of fans all the time, and I think that's crazy, too.

    In short, people are messed up. I doubt we'll ever achieve true equality, because we all choose to look at the differences rather than discuss the main issue.

    Rape is wrong. Murder is wrong. Kidnapping is wrong. I don't care if you're black, white, brown, purple, or orange, a woman or a man, a child or an adult, a rich person or a poor one, a religious person or an atheist, I DON'T CARE. Wrong is wrong is wrong.

    And that concludes my own rant for the day. Have a nice day, Mark.
