So yesterday in class we were having a discussion about these white American and European men who are sex tourists. They go to places like Thailand and the Dominican Republic for underage sex slaves.

These men were interviewed and they were the most awful people you could think of. They talked about how they liked going to these girls because they could abuse them and the girls can’t do anything about it. Some of these men even permanently moved to these places because they enjoy it so much. They complained that women in their countries have too many rights, and you can’t abuse/rape them without getting arrested. They also complained that their rights as rich, white, men were being taken away in their countries, and these women “know their place.”

The class discussed it, but one student got super pissed that students were calling them “these men,” and “these American and European men.” She also got upset that the topic of white male privilege came up. She told the class that she refused to participate in this discussion because we were demonizing all white men.

My husband and brother are white and I could never imagine even thinking about this. It must be the wife in me, but I cannot stand to listen to all of you talk about men like this.

Today is Racist Fuckery (10.20.14): At yesterday’s protest outside the St Louis Rams game, racist fans got rowdy and physical. Who got arrested? Two of the protesters, of course. Mike Brown means we have to fight back. #staywoke

Redditor AL0311 posted this picture of his friend dressed up as Ray Rice on Sunday, writing, “My friend came to the party as Ray Rice.”

“Ladies were falling for my friends Ray Rice costume,” he wrote in a second post today.

This is fucking disgusting. What part of a woman being KNOCKED OUT UNCONSCIOUS is funny/appropriate for Halloween? Stop.

A Voice for Men, a men’s rights site that is most notable for being featured as a hate site by the Southern Poverty Law Center, is currently hosting a conference on men’s issues in Detroit.

The images above are direct quotes of what some of the speakers at this men’s rights conference have said.

Sit back and marvel at the newest human rights movement.

Thanks to both David Futrelle at We Hunted The Mammoth for the excellent article that inspired this post and whey_ over at the againstmensrights subreddit for making the above images.

Please share this post far and wide so everyone knows exactly what men’s rights activists believe!

That’s actually one of the tamer Warren Farrell quotes. He actually said that incest victims enjoy it.

And not for nothing, but Karen Straughan was “awakened” to misandry when her son’s school put him in the remedial class when she KNEW he was a genius.

And Erin Pizzey thinks the FBI is run by feminists who also shot her dog.

Reblogging again for that last comment.

They literally just hate women. They aren’t even trying to help men, just want to see women abused, raped, and killed.

talk about perspective. shit.

Fucking hell.

I remember the first time I saw a map of Africa to scale. My jaw dropped.

And I’m wondering how a continent so big can be so conveniently left out of our world history text books. A class on Africa isn’t a requirement for Anthro majors at my school. YOU CAN HAVE A MAJOR ON THE STUDY OF HUMANS AND COMPLETELY LEAVE OUT THIS WHOLE ASS CONTINENT.

Is this a human rights violation?

They’re being forced to risk their lives, so yeah I would say this is a violation of their right to life.

Everytime I look around, the US Govt, or some part there-of on  State or National level; is finding a way to reintroduce slavery.

Fucking hell. The prison industrial complex finds new ways to shock, revile and disgust every day.

This isn’t “a way to reintroduce slavery,” though. The 13th Amendment, which ended slavery, was very precisely written:

"Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.”

This is why black people make up 14% of the US population and 40% of the prison population and why Native Americans make up less than 1% of the US population but 2% of the prison population.

This isnt slavery. These are people who commit crimes like murder and child molestation that are being punished for there actions through physical labor. God forbid they do something other than sit on their asses all day in jail.

Literally nothing you just said is based in fact. 

The men fighting these fires are all low-level offenders, primarily with charges for drugs, robbery, and other non-violent offenses (and, fyi, non-violent offenses are what 50% of state prisoners and about 90% of federal prisoners are incarcerated for). US prison has largely been a privatized, for-profit industry since the 1980s. Law changes like mandatory minimums for low-level crime have ensured that the incarceration rate has done nothing but skyrocket because private prisons need a steady flow of inmates to turn profit and our government is contractually obligated to provide that steady flow. Hell, drug-related charges account for over half of that rise of rate. Marginalized groups are targeted disproportionately for incarceration through systemic poverty, inaccessible education, social instability, etc (all which increase risk of drug abuse and other criminal behavior), racial profiling by LEOs, and by being given much harsher sentences than more privileged counterparts. And that’s without even touching on wrongful conviction rates, which are about 6% for violent crimes and estimated to be much higher with lesser offenses. 

And criminals are sent to prison as punishment, not for punishment. The confinement and denial of personal agency is the punishment. And prison is meant to serve two purposes: punishment and rehabilitation. Prison work programs are about neither—they exist primarily to defray costs of housing inmates (and, thus, increase profits for private prisons). And bondage, subjugation, and forced labor for other’s financial gain is practically the textbook definition of slavery, so idk what to tell you. There are lots of ways to keep prisoners from “sitting on their asses all day” that don’t involve treating these men and women as unworthy of humane treatment, empathy, and compassion. Hell, work programs are even a really viable option for that when approached with the right intentions.   

Seriously, I really urge you to do some reading about mass incarceration, racial disparities in incarceration, the privatization of the prison industry, etc. if you’re going to have an opinion on this stuff because ignorance isn’t a good look on anyone. 

Men are not the only ones who in confinement that fight these fires. Women in confinement do also.

NEVER FORGET: IT WAS THE CIA, MI6 AND THE BELGIUM GOVERNMENT WHO KILLED PATRICE LUMUMBA. THEY KILLED HIM BECAUSE HE REFUSED TO BE THEIR DOG. THEY KILLED HIM BECAUSE HE WANTED TRUE INDEPENDENCE FOR THE CONGOLESE PEOPLE AND THE REST OF THE AFRICAN NATIONS. THE WEST DECIDED TO MAKE AN EXAMPLE OF LUMUMBA TO THE MASSES AND OF COURSE TO OTHER AFRICAN LEADERS, TO SHOW THEM WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THEY OPPOSED ANY IMPERIALIST DICTATES. PATRICE LUMUMBA WAS PRIME MINISTER OF THE CONGO FOR 81 DAY

There’s actually a cool movie called Lumumba on Netflix for those who want to learn more about him.

I remember a few years ago the belgium prime minister adresses apologies to Lumumba familly and to Kongo, for their involvement in Patrice Lumumba’s murder. Sick world

*Congo…Kongo is the name of an ancient Kingdom in central Africa
