oppression, sexual assault 

"BuT mEn ArE aLsO sExuALLy assAuLteD aNd gET inVaLidAteD"

What. I am a feminist and I would be one of the first to comfort a man victim of sexual assault, I don't care about their gender. They have been assaulted.

Also men are much less sexually assaulted than women,,, just saying.

Say there is a cishet guy you know who gets sexually assaulted. Would you invalidate this?

re: oppression, sexual assault 

@matthilde I think that, as with all other popular talking points, they do not actually care about victims of sexual assault (male or otherwise), they just use it as "gotcha".

re: oppression, sexual assault 

@IngaLovinde The guy claims he has been assaulted. However someone else told me that the girl who assaulted him said the other way. Sooooo he maybe have been assaulted. There is nothing to prove that though.

re: oppression, sexual assault 

@matthilde @IngaLovinde It’s not guaranteed correct every time, but a good rule of thumb is to believe the girl.

re: oppression, sexual assault 

@ghost_bird @IngaLovinde tbh i will stay neutral about this.

re: oppression, sexual assault 

@ghost_bird @IngaLovinde Also its what he seems to point out. That people believe the woman more than the man.

Not that I am saying its true or false, I am just saying I don't care.
This guy is an asshole and I don't like him.

re: oppression, sexual assault 

@matthilde Yeah, bitter misogynists are worth avoiding

re: oppression, sexual assault 

@ghost_bird I have no idea if he is legit misogynist or just rely on birdsite and niche online articles to come to a conclusion. He didn't research actually, the one who did research is uh,,,,, his girlfriend.
Its so visible that this girl has never been stared down by a weird guy or felt like someone was following her -_-
Yea go tell me there are cishet guys who gets stared down by creepy girls in the street I won't believe it.

re: oppression 

@matthilde Also a galaxy brain take (region-specific): "men are the actual victims because they are drafted to army against their will; feminists do not actually want equality because their number 1 demand is something other than for women to be drafted to army against their will"

re: oppression 

@matthilde There is a conscription army in Russia. Every able-bodied man is drafted once they reach 18 or once they leave the university, and has to serve for a year (for two years until recently). Women are not drafted.

It is a very popular talking point in Russia to say that this is the prominent example that in Russia it's men who are being oppressed and have less rights, and women who are being privileged and have more rights. And that any honest feminist, had she really been honest about her desire for equal rights, should spend her life pushing the government to change the laws so that women are also drafted once they reach 18. And since they did not hear about any feminists with such a demand, it means that there are no honest feminists, and that all feminists in Russia just want to make women even more privileged.

(They don't care that it is almost universally acknowledged that conscription army is bad and that drafting should be abolished.)

For some reason your toot reminded me of that.
