I actually agree with most of your later points, although I would point out that advertisements are everywhere in schools telling boys they are rapists, funding for women's medical health programs are so much greater than men's as to be laughable, 95% of sitcoms present men as dumb-fucks lucky to have been permitted to marry their wives.

Rape culture was designed by feminists, for female benefit. It is a sequence of lies, mirepresented statistics, and studies that get debunked under peer review but are used anyway, to present fallacious implications about rape numbers. Don't get me wrong, rape is terrible and is of course a huge problem, but exaggerating that problem to the detriment of men without taking into consideration the fact that more men are raped in the united states than women thanks to our having the largest prison population on the planet is both disingenuous and a bit sad.

As for those statistics you presented, now look up how many women are graduating college as compared to men, how women are doing in our now altered school systems thanks to feminist lobbying as compared to men, and then, take another look at your statistics. Please note, all of these people you mention with the exception of the tenured professors are not what constitutes a standard white male, actually they constitute members of the top 1% of wealth in this country, and they happen to be mostly white males thanks to the influence of the rothschilde family and others on manipulating banking across europe and the united states. They are not an example of "male priviledge" they are an example of "wealthy nepitism" and are irrelevant to common men.

but yeah i agree with the medical health thing yeah yeah also there is no male birth control which sucks. there was one but it caused cramps and weight gain in some cases so they stopped it (which is pretty much female birth control anyway but it sucks equally as bad)
rape culture is not designed by feminists. when a women is raped, she is questioned on what she was wearing, where she was, if she was drunk, if she 'led him on' etc pretty much everything that happened in the steubenville incident, it's summarised here cogentcomment.com/2013/03/19/so-youre-tired-of-hearing-about-rape-culture/

also, feminist lobbies are the ones who pushed for the legislation that allowed such a court result to even be considered as possible, and also note, such a decision is women specific. That can never be the case for a man.

Ask those men, who have been helped, how it feels to know that women are automatically assumed caregivers in divorce, and why a system that is supposedly being made more equal towards women's rights has swung so far i that direction that most men can never receive child support in our country, and why 75-90% of divorces are initiated BY WOMEN. It's not like that situation developed in a vaccuum.
User avatar #342 - isabob (07/02/2013) [-]
"women are automatically assumed caregivers in divorce" because of patriarchy. like that is literally it. the assumption that women are naturally better caregivers is part of patriarchy so that really worked against itself there
also:
Men’s Issues
-Societal expectations of masculinity
-Societal expectations to provide for women
-No long term reversible male birth control
-Men who are raped are more likely to remain silent and be dismissed or outright laughed at
-Alimony
-No support for male victims of domestic abuse
also here's another thing:
"facts about divorce for feminists and MRAs:

- in most (51%) of cases, both parents decided on their own (out of court) that the mother was to receive full custody
- in 29% of custody cases, the decision was made without any third party involvement
- in 91% of cases, the decision for the mother to have custody was made without court involvement
- of those who go to court, 70% of men who seek custody of their child receive it
- of those 70%, 1/3 of the cases cited domestic abuse as part of the reason for divorce
- women who mention having been victims of domestic abuse in court are less likely to receive custody of their children than women who didn’t

i’m tired of seeing arguments regarding feminism by both feminists and MRAs citing “gender bias in custody cases" as a problem we need to solve. women aren’t unfairly receiving custody more often. abusive men are unfairly receiving custody.

the fact is, if my dad had actually attended his court ordered anger management type classes, i would legally have been required to spend a portion of my time with him until i turned 18, even though he beat my mother and abused me.

don’t let anyone make you think that the scale isn’t still tipped toward men in a court of law."

Here, this is about as clear a breakdown as I've got of exactly what changes have been made due to feminist legislation, specific only to family courts.

The patriarchy is crap, because it implies a willfull conspiracy of female oppression over the years... tell you what, look up the exact sequence of events of how each group in the USA got their voting rights, and what was required of them in order to achieve those rights. Then tell me when women you know signed up for selective service, and then DON'T tell me that's due to "patriarchy backfiring" because that's fucking ridiculous, as most men up until just before that point ALSO had no fucking rights, or say, in how this country was run.
User avatar #340 - isabob (07/02/2013) [-]
okay well just to start off here's some things

White American males constitute only 33% of the population. Yet, they occupy approximately:
80% of tenured positions in higher education
80% of the House of Representatives
80-85% of the U.S. Senate
92%of Forbes 400 executive CEO-level positions
90% of athletic team owners
97.7% of U.S. presidents

and often misogyny is in everyday situations. im sure you've noticed it here and there, but even the most basic things that we accept as part of the gender can often be sexist, such as how women are expected to, obligated to and shamed if they dont shave their body, regardless of whether they want to or not. rape culture is another big thing, as well as the fact that women cant wear revealing clothing without being called a slut because of the over-sexualisation of the female body, the commodification of female virginity and finally, how women in american education systems arent allowed to wear shorts or singlets because legs and shoulders 'distract boys'

Why not just re brand it as gender equality if you don't want the negative connotation.
I believe feminists are self serving and use their stereotypes and sexuality to get ahead in life.
Gender equalists, however, are truly committed to equality among the genders, and don't take handouts based on discrimination. But prefer to earn what they get.
User avatar #334 - isabob (07/02/2013) [-]
okay for the first part i'll just quote my other comment: "the term you're looking for when you say "equal rights advocate" is actually egalitarian, which is an absolutely lovely thing in itself. however, i think feminism is a far better term to use. this is because when you choose to call yourself an egalitarian instead of a feminist, you are overlooking thousands of years of women's oppression. instead of acknowledging the existence of male privilege, you use a gender-neutral term to describe a problem which disproportionately affects women over men. you have officially missed the point."
feminism is not used to get ahead in life. misogyny basically puts women back a few steps, to put it simply, and we're just trying to reclaim that ground. feminism never works to get ahead of men, and if you could provide me with an example where it does, that would be lovely : )
(also we shouldnt have to change what we identify as just because feminism has a bad name with people who have not researched what it really does and just use it to describe women who are being terrible people) thanks
User avatar #321 - teranin (07/02/2013) [-]
Feminism is beneficial to neither men nor women in the long run, but as it stands it currently benefits only women. The manipulation of societal opinion and legislation results in some amazingly horrible shit, like this, for example.

User avatar #335 - isabob (07/02/2013) [-]
feminism is beneficial to both men and women (it has benefitted me and all of my feminist friends, several of which are men) so really that's all there is to it like feminist benefits people i dont see how you can argue that it doesnt
while that article is absolutely horrible, it actually has no affiliation with feminism. it mentions that she was mentally disturbed, which would usually mean she would go to a mental institution for a least a little while but wow she didnt have to at all that's incredibly morbid
but yeah feminism had no influence on that, that was just all the justice system being shit im sorry

You lost me at patriarchy, which is a logical fallacy put forth by feminist education used to arbitrarily present a superiority directive/victimization directive which allows a narrative for the feminist lobbying arm to manipulate legislation to the bias and benefit of women. Want equal rights? call yourself an equal rights advocate, and ACTUALLY ADVOCATE FOR EQUAL RIGHTS for every member of humanity.
User avatar #333 - isabob (07/02/2013) [-]
okay dokey well firstly: "manipulate legislation to the bias and benefit of women" - no, this is not what it aims for at all. the fact is that women (as well as non-whites, non-hetero, non-cisgendered and non-binary gendered people) are disadvantaged in society, and so we need to change a few things around to fix this. feminism never (never) [never!!!!!] ((((NEVER)))) never works to disadvantage men; it works to get men and women on an average playing ground. there is not a single situation in which feminism has worked to manipulate legislation to the "bias and benefit of women" and if you have an example, i would be absolutely willing to listen!
the term you're looking for when you say "equal rights advocate" is actually egalitarian, which is an absolutely lovely thing in itself. however, i think feminism is a far better term to use. this is because when you choose to call yourself an egalitarian instead of a feminist, you are overlooking thousands of years of women's oppression. instead of acknowledging the existence of male privilege, you use a gender-neutral term to describe a problem which disproportionately affects women over men. you have officially missed the point. and as for the "ACTUALLY ADVOCATE FOR EQUAL RIGHTS for every member of humanity." statement, i would just like to mention that i do. i dedicate myself to equality in every way that i can. i dont fat-shame, i dont slut-shame, i dont enforce gender roles against men or women, i am anti-racist, pro-LGBTQI+ etc like the list goes on but it's not very interesting i'll list if you really want but it's not very important
finally, the whole idea of the patriarchy (im sorry this was your first argument and i adressed it last haha). im not sure if you're dismissing the whole existence of the patriarchy or if you're suggesting that it is overstated as a problem, but i would disagree with both. i will provide examples if you're dismissing the existence of it, but otherwise, i'll just leave it haha

[CONTINUED] the only people that don’t think in this way are people who have actively researched this damaging mindset and have worked to banish it; without active participation and research, there’s really no chance that non-feminists realise that their mindset is damaging. it’s not your fault you think this way; it’s how most people think, but it is damaging nonetheless.
I really hope people start looking at feminism as a thing that can help women, and not to the detriment of men; it does not aim for superior rights over men, it just aims for equality. often we mistake this for superior rights because we don’t realise how privileged men are in society (just like we don’t realise how privileged whites, heterosexuals, cisgendered and affluent people are), but this is very rarely the case. if anyone would like to have a discussion about this, or possibly talk about feminism and how it really is an excellent and helpful movement, I would be absolutely thrilled for you to email me at isabob808@hotmail.com.

feminism is not used to get ahead in life. misogyny basically puts women back a few steps, to put it simply, and we're just trying to reclaim that ground. feminism never works to get ahead of men, and if you could provide me with an example where it does, that would be lovely : )
(also we shouldnt have to change what we identify as just because feminism has a bad name with people who have not researched what it really does and just use it to describe women who are being terrible people) thanks

Feminism is beneficial to neither men nor women in the long run, but as it stands it currently benefits only women. The manipulation of societal opinion and legislation results in some amazingly horrible shit, like this, for example.

feminism is beneficial to both men and women (it has benefitted me and all of my feminist friends, several of which are men) so really that's all there is to it like feminist benefits people i dont see how you can argue that it doesnt
while that article is absolutely horrible, it actually has no affiliation with feminism. it mentions that she was mentally disturbed, which would usually mean she would go to a mental institution for a least a little while but wow she didnt have to at all that's incredibly morbid
but yeah feminism had no influence on that, that was just all the justice system being shit im sorry

also, feminist lobbies are the ones who pushed for the legislation that allowed such a court result to even be considered as possible, and also note, such a decision is women specific. That can never be the case for a man.

Ask those men, who have been helped, how it feels to know that women are automatically assumed caregivers in divorce, and why a system that is supposedly being made more equal towards women's rights has swung so far i that direction that most men can never receive child support in our country, and why 75-90% of divorces are initiated BY WOMEN. It's not like that situation developed in a vaccuum.

"women are automatically assumed caregivers in divorce" because of patriarchy. like that is literally it. the assumption that women are naturally better caregivers is part of patriarchy so that really worked against itself there
also:
Men’s Issues
-Societal expectations of masculinity
-Societal expectations to provide for women
-No long term reversible male birth control
-Men who are raped are more likely to remain silent and be dismissed or outright laughed at
-Alimony
-No support for male victims of domestic abuse
also here's another thing:
"facts about divorce for feminists and MRAs:

- in most (51%) of cases, both parents decided on their own (out of court) that the mother was to receive full custody
- in 29% of custody cases, the decision was made without any third party involvement
- in 91% of cases, the decision for the mother to have custody was made without court involvement
- of those who go to court, 70% of men who seek custody of their child receive it
- of those 70%, 1/3 of the cases cited domestic abuse as part of the reason for divorce
- women who mention having been victims of domestic abuse in court are less likely to receive custody of their children than women who didn’t

i’m tired of seeing arguments regarding feminism by both feminists and MRAs citing “gender bias in custody cases" as a problem we need to solve. women aren’t unfairly receiving custody more often. abusive men are unfairly receiving custody.

the fact is, if my dad had actually attended his court ordered anger management type classes, i would legally have been required to spend a portion of my time with him until i turned 18, even though he beat my mother and abused me.

don’t let anyone make you think that the scale isn’t still tipped toward men in a court of law."

Got a source for those statistics? Here's some statistics that clearly refute them, and were not funded by a feminist organization.
