Support The Owen/Aurini Team creating The Sarkeesian Effect

Friend sent me a link to this and I wanted to share, I haven’t seen it on tumblr yet but if people don’t know about it, it seems like a really good project. I’d want to see the SJWs exposed and I intend to donate some money myself when I come into some in the next few days. I hope that if you can’t support this project then you at least raise awareness to it.

So, this guy goes to my sister’s school where they’re doing the awesome “I need feminism because” project. At her school, students/teachers/staff are photographed holding up signs explaining why they need feminism, and the pictures are posted onto a facebook page. 

Then this guy posts this picture onto their facebook page with the caption “I am one with your struggle.” About 100 people liked it, which makes me really fucking angry. 

Yes, I, an upper-middle class white girl, realize and recognize that other human beings are so, so, so much more oppressed than I am. I am so so lucky! When it comes to systematic oppression, I have it really easy. I am undeniably and indubitably privileged. But hey, is it a crime to speak up for myself as a human being and recognize that some shitty things that have happened to me and happen to me every day tie directly to misogyny? No. Am I constantly shamed and mocked and yelled at by white cis-gendered straight boys for it? Yes. 

Why? Because of a culture where girls can literally never ever ever EVER speak up for themselves without boys getting offended, trying to talk over them, and victimizing themselves (“the patriarchy affects me too!1!!!!1!!”). Because of a culture where when I try to point out something that’s wrong with our society, I get shut down for fucking ANYTHING that I say. 

Boys like this are condescending. They illigitimize the feminist movement, they play it off as a joke, because they literally do not realize that sexism STILL EXISTS and their rape jokes, and “go to the kitchen and make me a sandwich” jokes, and their sexualization of literally anything and everything are part of the problem. 

OBVIOUSLY sexism doesn’t only affect upper-middle class white girls. OBVIOUSLY upper-middle class white girls have it easier than a lot of other people. But wait a second—I’m an upper-middle class white girl. And I have been catcalled, leered at, grabbed, poked and sexually harassed by boys and men at my school, on the street, and in the subway or bus or whatever. But who really cares, right? It’s not like sexism and the patriarchy and misogyny and rape culture and all the other shit that affect every woman ACTUALLY EXIST. Oh wait, yes they do. 

Fuck this guy. And fuck every guy who tries to shut girls down for speaking up for themselves. Because feminism matters, and it is totally legitimate, and everyone needs feminism, regardless of ethnicity or race or sexual orientation or class or how much money their parents make—everyone needs feminism, and this guy needs to realize that. 

You argument is basically "people criticize feminism and my personal struggle and thus I need feminism because they shouldn’t be allowed to do that."

Because of a culture where girls can literally never ever ever EVER speak up for themselves without boys getting offended, trying to talk over them, and victimizing themselves (“the patriarchy affects me too!1!!!!1!!”)”

Not one anti-feminist or men’s rights activist has ever said the patriarchy affects them in any way. Probably because the patriarchy doesn’t exist.

"Boys like this are condescending. They illigitimize the feminist movement”

You think boys like this invalidate feminism? No, its feminists who invalidate feminism. Its feminists who make a big deal out of non-issues that make people despise your entire movement. You have all lost sight of the individual and instead choose to marginalize an entire gender, dismissing any kind of suffering or problems we try to address for our own health and understanding of our own gender. It is feminists who pull fire alarms to interrupt peaceful meetings because of an assumed threat even though they had no idea what the meeting was even about.

It’s not like sexism and the patriarchy and misogyny and rape culture and all the other shit that affect every woman ACTUALLY EXIST. Oh wait, yes they do.”

Oh wait, sexism affects both genders. Patriarchy doesn’t exist considering if you live in the first world all basic human rights and legal protection is shared by both genders. Misogyny exists just as much as misandry, there are always going to be assholes. And according to RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, rape culture doesn’t fucking exist.

I feel like I might have to repeat myself so you understand:

RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, has officially stated that rape culture doesn’t fucking exist.

And fuck every guy who tries to shut girls down for speaking up for themselves.”

Well, it kind of depends on the context of the discussion. Was she speaking up and defending pedophilia or child rape?

Because feminism matters, and it is totally legitimate, and everyone needs feminism”

Feminism matters and is just about as legitimate as Creationism is. And nobody need Creationism.

lol

"Boys like this are condescending. They illigitimize the feminist movement"

If your entire movement is made illegitimate by an instance of mild mockery… WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU ABOUT THE MOVEMENT?

Obviously the only reason it upsets you is because the point he’s making is true. You’re not oppressed. That’s the end of it. Nail in coffin. Shut the fuck up.

I actually want to know what kind of backwards school adopts such a cultish system where its students are required to make “I need feminism because…” signs as part of a project and grade. I mean unless this is a feminist established school, which to my knowledge none such exist, but this is akin to a public school requiring that its students make “I need Jesus because…” posters, even if the students don’t identify as Christians. So warped…so fucked up. Even if this is a gender studies class, this is cult behaviour and indoctrination, not the reverence of free thinking and critical idea formation, just the opposite.

I read it as a voluntary project rather than one you’d get graded on. But I could be wrong there.

Also, I just can’t get over the hot dog on his shirt. For some reason, it’s cracking me up.

In my 2 cents I never once said that ALL bisexuals cheat. I said that all the ones I've dealt with have been cheaters. Go out, find someone you really like, get to know most of them, then get ignored cause they are actually married and just wanted to use you as a booty call to fulfill their other half of their sexuality. See how that makes you feel.

Your unfortunate circumstances do not give you the right to generalize. 

I can guarantee my mods would be hurt, but they would still not generalize.

hey, just an fyi, the creator of five nights at freddy’s is extremely anti choice and even made a pro life video game called The Desolate Hope that’s also on steam.

if you want to play five nights, please torrent it. don’t give him any money.

nope. this is wrong. the game was not intended to be pro choice.

please don’t encourage fucking over a creator based on the words of someone else.

Even if it were true, it still doesn’t make it right for you to pirate their game*.

If you actually felt that strongly..don’t partake of their creative output.

*If you want to pirate it, go ahead but don’t try and dress it up in the rags of respectable moral/political outrage.

The guy who did Five Nights has made a lot of Christian-themed games…on commission. As in, he was hired, instructed, and paid to make those specific games. Do people not know how freelancing works?

Looking through the posts and articles and videos, it seems that the entire Alex Day scandal was designed from the beginning to be poorly handled.

Note: When I say that, I do not mean that the accusations-or at least not all of the accusations-are false.

Anonymous posts mixed with vague re-tellings, writing styles designed to cast everything in the most victimized light, and blind belief on both sides. When a situation is handled this way, it is impossible for the situation to be resolved to anyone’s satisfaction. It, instead, becomes just another piece of sensationalized semi-news that only serves to trivialize the reality of the situation—whatever that reality may be.
