breaking news: evil feminist leader Anita Sarkeesian ruins gaming everywhere forever by saying “that’s pretty sexist, how about not doing that.”
nice guys everywhere are suffering. now they cannot beat up a hooker and steal her money without thinking “maybe this is sexist”. the american way has truly collapsed and our nation will never be the same. please take off your fedoras for a moment of silence.
Breaking news, video game where you can murder anyone and steal their cash is sexist because women are included in the category of anyone.
We just got an update! Yet another day passes where you can kill, maim, torture, and massacre men by the thousands in video games as you have been able to for the past couple decades. Feminists, supposed fighters for men as well as women, remain silent!
It’s almost as if the actions of the movement are totally out of line with it’s claims!
One comment makes a change.
I don’t know why the tide has changed and all of a sudden it’s all bash on trans men and queer men or amab for that matter.
I don’t know why domestic violence against men is a joke.
I don’t know why “small comments” degrading men are ok.
Just because I am a man, who happens to be queer does not make me less of a person or being trans for that matter or making a joke that because my penis is a dildo, I’m not a man (waves at Nicki Minaj and the tumblr post)
And don’t forget you’re not the one who gets Volkova on telly saying that you should be stopped for being gay.
I don’t know where this comes from
And it’s this sudden outburst for either amab and/or cis/queer identifying men.
And it sickens me to the core.
And guess what
I’ll fucking say it
All the transphobia I’ve ever gotten came from women’s lips (even trans women). Always. Regardless of sexuality and if you google, hate speech towards trans people is mostly from women.
So “one comment” is enough to start a fire.
You know when your gender or a part of your gender sickens you so much that you wish you weren’t it?
*waves* I am.
Congratulations, women of tumblr, I believe you’ve learnt nothing. Tumblr Feminism truly became about fighting and defending anything said from a woman’s mouth, because she is a woman. And that’s all.
I don’t know how “fuck you” is even nice here.
And I dunno, I find myself aesthetically pleasing, thank you very much (*wave towards Volkova*)
So I dunno why can’t we accept Minaj being problematic when I saw the person who made me discover my sexuality, identity and has been supporting me for 13 years I just erased her from my life and Minaj is just there and untouched.
Every bit of shaming and bullying I’ve ever been subjected to over my sexuality has come from women as well. The men were either supportive, curious or didn’t give a shit, it made absolutely no difference to them. Girls often decided that I all of a sudden wanted to rape them (one even spread rumours that I was a lesbian rapist when I was sexually assaulted by a woman in the street), it’s a problem many such people have with non-straight people, that it suddenly means they have neither preference nor self control when it comes to the same sex. Like that “keep your back to the wall” bullshit.
t.A.T.u, the faux lesbian Russian pop duo have drifted out of the limelight since their fifteen minutes of fame back in 2002 when they pranced around in the rain dressed as schoolgirls kissing defiantly as a judgemental society looked on. There’s no question as to why the video brought them such fame. Lesbians have been underrepresented in pop music and the message was strong and controversial for many people at the time.
Also, they were wearing schoolgirl uniforms and kissing. That may have been a draw.
When it emerged that not only were the bandmates not a couple, but both were straight, the world felt a bit duped. The girls had used lesbianism to skyrocket themselves to fame. Still, so long as their message of tolerance and acceptance of love in all its forms still stood, we were willing to forgive the faux sexuality.
Alas and alack, Yulia Volkova, formerly one half of t.A.T.u. has made some shamelessly homophobic comments of late. According to reports from several sources, Volkova announced that she would not accept having a gay son:
"Yes, I would condemn him, because I believe that a real man must be a real man," she said. "God created man for procreation, it is the nature. The man for me is the support, the strength of… I won’t accept a gay son."
However all is not lost for the gay community, Miss Volkova has a few exceptions:
1. She doesn’t hate you, you’re just not a “real” man.
"I want to say that I’m not against gays, I just want my son to be a real man, not a fag," - Yulia Volkova.
Pictured Right: Neil Patrick Harris. He has an internationally successful career and a loving family which he provides for. He’s also what Yulia would deem a “fag”. If NPH isn’t the epitome of a “real” man, I don’t know what is.
2. You may be gay, but it could be worse
"I believe that being gay is all still better than murderers, thieves or drug addicts. If you choose out of all this, being gay a little better than the rest." - Yulia Volkova
So according to Yulia if you’re gay, you’re not that low down on the scum ladder. But wait, what if you’re a gay murderer, a gay thief or a gay drug addict?
“That’s her officer, that’s the fabulous bitch who stabbed me”.
5. It’s okay to be gay, provided you’re hot.
"Two girls together - not the same thing as the two men together, it seems to me that lesbians look aesthetically much nicer than two men holding their hands or kissing." - Yulia Volkova.
So surprisingly Yulia has decided to engage in selective gender biased homophobia. She’s very much okay with lesbians, which is convenient seeing as faux lesbianism is the only reason anyone cares about what she has to say. Two guys kissing? That’s icky, but two girls, well that’s something we’re all gagging to see.
And with this revelation, Susan and Mags hired a sitter, went down the pub, downed a few shots and gave the people what they wanted.
4. It’s totally okay guys, she has gay friends.
"I have many gay friends." - Yulia Volkova
When you find yourself saying “some of my best friends are white/black/gay/albino it’s pretty safe to say that you have just said something potentially ignorant or offensive and you are trying to qualify it or backtrack. Stop. Just stop.
As consumers of pop music, we don’t like being duped. Yes, we understand that a certain level of it is prepackaged, stylized and falsified. We know Britney’s not singing live anymore than the snake around her shoulders is, we know One Direction didn’t hop out of bed in the morning looking like a bunch of adorable ragamuffins without the help of a stylist. There is a certain amount we’re willing to concede, but concerning gay activist pop stars, we really would prefer a level of genuineness and less blatant hypocrisy. What if Ke$ha said she hated Glitter? What if Snoop Dogg gave a lecture on the dangers of smoking weed? What if Lady Gaga began to vilify the mentally ill?
No, when it comes to gay pop icons, whether faux or genuinely gay, I really would prefer if they didn’t spout ignorant putrescence, thanks very much Yulia.
Stay tuned for the inevitable I’m a Celebrity/Big Brother appearance.
That’s not even the worst part:
The stunned interviewer reacted, saying:
"Stop, stop. You just told me that you do not mind if your daughter was a lesbian. You were talking about freedom."
But Yulia doubled down:
"This only applies to a daughter, not a son. I think for men, it’s a bad freedom. A man has no right to be a fag.
