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 >_>
