How Feminism Helps Men
Note 1: Read the original article first http://www.huffingtonpost.com/micah-j-murray/how-feminism-hurts-men_b_4266733.html - before reading the rebuttal below
Note 2: if you don't sarcasm, please fuck off and don't read any further
Yesterday somebody on Facebook showed me an extremely well referenced piece of satire that conclusively demonstrated that feminism fights for gender equality on both fronts.
He was right.
For men, the rise of feminism has elevated us from second-class status. Equality and fairness have become part of our everyday lives. In the following argument, I won’t simply assume that certain things are the way they are because of feminism. I will actually demonstrate how feminism was the causal factor that influenced the situation.
Because of feminism, you will never see men who were sexually assaulted by women outright dismissed as objects of a joke in a satirical newspaper article. Long gone are those days! Everybody knows now that men get raped by women, to
Left Side of the RoadGrowing up in the US, I always though it interesting that in some countries motorist drive on the left side of the road instead of the right. There is a reason for this law: In the 1800s, pedestrians as well as horse-and-carriages used the same roads. When a carriage was on the right side of the road, a driver's horse whip would sometimes hit a passerby. To remove this hazard, a law was passed requiring all carriages to travel on the left side of the road so the pedestrians could be kept safe.
Just as the rules of the road are for our benefits and protection, so are God's commands. Because He loves us, He has given them to us for our benefit. Paul writes: "For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself'" (Galatians 5:13-14).
As we apple God's Word to our hearts, let's keep in mind that the God of
Essay: Week 1, Day 1Why You Shouldn't Tell People "Just be grateful you're pretty" When They Want Sympathy:
It’s easy to tell someone that they look fine, or that they should be grateful for what they have, or that they’re so pretty.
It’s probably harder to sit and listen to what someone is actually saying, and then decide what to say.
The thing is telling someone who has experienced serious health problems and has put on weight, lost some of their hair, or anything else, minimizes their feelings and is basically telling them that their feelings are wrong. There are people who are fine with this. There are other people who don’t want to just be told “Well, you’re so pretty!” when they’re expressing what amounts to a confession about something deep and personal – and let’s be clear, even if you don’t care about your looks at all, it can still be a deeply personal thing to the other person – because it’s trivializin
FAQuinterview - Foire aux quiches et aux questionsQu'est-ce que l'Oetherium ?
L'Oetherium est un univers que moi (Zlo) ai développé sur mon blog, dans des textes improvisés à partir de dessins que je publiais chaque semaine pour me forcer à écrire et développer un peu mes neurones fondus sur un exercice en free-style total. J'ai été rejointe par Helly au fil de nos discussions sur de petites improvisations aussi courtes que délirantes. Puis au final, ça a commencé à avoir de la gueule et à donner les signes d'une structure d'histoire plus large cohérente, tant et si bien que c'est de cette trame que nous sommes parties Helly et moi-même un soir, sur un délire skypesque plus grand que les autres et ça a finalement donné... hem, beaucoup plus de pages et d'improvisation que prévu, mais en duo .
L'Oetherium est, en très résumé, un monde en symbiose avec le nôtre, se
My Thoughts On: Marvel DISK Wars: The AvengersAnother year means new anime to watch. Normally I only watch dubs of anime, with the occasional sub thrown in here and there. However, I heard about one new anime that I just couldn’t wait to see: “Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers.” Despite the fact that the character designs are a little off, I think it’s a worthwhile show.
Keep in mind that the following contains spoilers about the show, so if you do not want to be spoiled, stop reading right now. Also keep in mind that this is not a professional review. This is merely the opinion of a fan.
So, let’s not waste any time; here’s the story.
Two boys are taken to meet their father after a years-long absence. It turns out he was working with Tony Stark to develop a new tool in crime-fighting: the Digital Identity Securement Kit, or DISK. However, during the reveal and demonstration of the new tool, Loki arrives and uses the DISKs to break out an army of supervillains and entrap the superheroes. Now, with

Welcome back to the show. It’s been a long week, and the Eon Awards last week were phenomenal. Shout out to my girlfriend, Yaleia for doing a marvelous job. Anyway, it’s Tuesday, and that means a brand new episode of ORN. Are you excited? Well, you should be. The theme for tonight’s show is Cryzone Colosseum. That means warriors, fighters, and…gladiators? Oh hell yeah!
My guest tonight is the leader of the Gladiator Devils. While he may not be the best fighter, he’s certainly able to hold is own in battles, and by that I mean take a lot of hits. He’s dating the queen of Cryzone, and he knows a lot about women. Certainly not a bad thing. Please welcome to the show Turbo!
Vibravo: So, welcome to the show, Turbo. How’ve you been?
Turbo: Pretty good. What about you?
Vibravo: Literally just got back from the 2014 Eon Awards. It was a wonderful event. Yaleia did a wonderful job of hosting
The Cult of Conspiracy TheorismThe Cult of Conspiracy Theorism
Conspiracy theories have gotten to a point where they appear almost exactly similar to religion, minus the deities. These bizarre, sometimes very ridiculous ideas about the Illuminati, the Free Masons, the Jesuits, the Jews, Zionists, chemtrails, FEMA death camps with plastic coffins, and reptilian alien space invaders require an exceptional amount of faith to be believed in. Let's take the conspiracy theory regarding a government cover up about how reptilian aliens are raping earth women to create a master race as our first example of how similar conspiracy theories are to religion. First this reptilian alien conspiracy (from here on out it will be called the RAC) requires an exceptional amount of faith, there is no evidence to back up the theory, none at all. People believe it on blind faith and on the words of "prophets" aka drug users, people who experience sleep paralysis, or those that may be experiencing visual hallucinatio
