The Kickstarter Needs You
Sorry to reblog from the source, but I thought the chain of comments was rather unnecessary. All that needs to be said is that this documentary examines gender inequality and how patriarchy contributes negatively to our society.
This is a feminist issue.
And anyone on Tumblr who’s too close-minded to recognize it as such due to a nonsensical blanketed hatred of men’s issues need to re-evaluate their motives.
THESE ARE REAL AND HORRIBLE MALE ISSUES CAUSED BY THE PATRIARCHY. IF YOURE FEMINIST, THESE SHOULD ANGER YOU. IF YOU’RE NOT, HERES ANOTHER REASON TO SUPPORT THE MOVEMENT.
have I already reblogged this? don’t give a fuck.
The patriarchy hurts everyone.
I WANNA MENTION THIS BECAUSE EVERY TIME SOMEONE MENTIONS THIS THING ABOUT SUICIDE I FEEL I SHOULD BUT IN
MORE WOMEN ATTEMPT SUICIDE
MORE MEN SUCCEED
Women are more likely to use non-lethal methods such as pills while men tend to use firearms.
Something to keep in mind.
I need feminism because the father of my children thinks his depression is invalid because he is male.
The attempt versus succeed thing…
If you think patriarchal views don’t hurt everyone, think of this: The reason why a lot of women don’t succeed is that, even in suicide, they are worried about their image. Even when all else fades, they still are worried at how they will be viewed by others. That’s why pills are used so abundantly. They don’t disfigure their image. That’s a sickening thought to me. To be told so much and have it so ingrained that image is everything that it ends up being the last thing that is still cared about.
Whereas with the men, “go big or go home” will always be the motto. If you’re going to do something, you better well do it right and make a statement about it. Even in death, you can’t show you’re weak.
We all need feminism, because we all need to be relieved of the burdens of our genders. I’m tired of having to prove I’m a man among peers. I’m tired of being looks at as the guy that can do all the heavy work because I’m a “big guy.” Guess what, my body breaks down the same. I’m tired of feeling less than others because I choose not to hunt animals or devote my life to sports…which I find absolutely pointless.
No matter your gender, patriarchal views hurt everyone.
