And let’s face it, Jon, there’s no way this man could be Santa. Because the moment white folks saw a Black man with a big old bag coming down the chimney, it’d be time to grab a gun and stand your ground.

this won’t get 1% of the women’s version of this post.
the world we live in, and people in general don’t care about men. we are pretty much robots who aren’t allowed to show emotion. we’re taught from a young age that boys don’t cry.
fact is women are sexualised, men are idealised. because men can’t be raped because they’re big and strong right? right? yea, pretty much the idiots view of living.
signal boost this shit
this needs much more notes, people need to see this
No means no, no matter what fucking gender you are
these kinds of posts always get notes on tumblr though because we realize and acknowledge the problems of everyone (no matter what gender)
Trigger warning for rape.
It is absolutely tragic when anyone gets raped and this is 100% worthy of being seen. Can we talk for a moment, though, about how “everyone no matter what gender” is nothing but an attempt at erasure of patriarchy’s role in sexual assault, and how “this won’t get 1% of the women’s version of this post” and “people in general don’t care about men” are completely fucking unnecessary? This is not a goddamn instance of women getting special treatment over men. It’s not a fucking competition, and people getting raped is not a soapbox for whining about women getting more attention. The ideas that “boys don’t cry” and that men are “big and strong” are full-on patriarchal ideas. These are ideas that frame certain characteristics as feminine and lesser, and certain as masculine and superior. People think “men can’t get raped” not because men are specifically persecuted compared to women, but because our society views victimization as something inherently feminine. If you’re going to talk about coverage of men being raped - which as I said is necessary - don’t talk about it like it’s a competition, or by erasing misogyny’s role. If you’re going try to address larger trends, then instead of turning it into an “everybody hurts and it all happens in a bubble devoid of power and privilege” fap-fest or a “nobody cares about the mens” circle jerk, talk about how misogynist those expectations for men are.
YES. YES. YES. THIS. THANK YOU.
That second hunk of paragraph though
