When we see something we see is wrong we should obviously question it, not jump to conclusions and defame something clearly made to invoke strong, good emotions. Hannah spit forth her verbal diarrhea without thinking about what the picture actually meant - the fact that it escaped her at all makes her a fucking idiot. All her comment does is take away the good intentions of the image by imposing her warped views on it.

Anyone capable of even a small amount of critical thinking wouldn't make that comment because they would understand the message being conveyed here. If the context clues escape you then you're either painfully stupid or autistic, neither of which excuses you from shitting up what is a noble message about american troops.

Of course it could give a message that the author didn't intend, but if you know damn well thats not what the author intended and the real message is clear as day then whatever the fuck else you think the picture means is redundant and getting offended by it is fucked up. These people are offended by things THEY MAKE UP IN THEIR OWN MIND.

People get offended by anything and expect people around them to apologize for not catering to their own unchecked mental disorders. Sorry if I'm a little irritated at it all but its become quite an epidemic as of late.

Sure. I agree. Getting mad at the unintended message when you know full well that that message was unintended, is silly as all hell. As I said in my first comment, btw...
That said, being blind or in denial as to the pressence of such an unintended message is equally as silly.

I dont blame you for going off on what you percieved as a feminazi. Those people really need a reality check. However, if I may request that you read more carefully what I write next time, as I feel like I did outline the fact that I didn't feel like rage at this unintended message was justified.

You're looking at the picture out of context to suit your warped worldview. You're wrong because there is no 'implied message' thats just bullshit in your head. Any moron can see the message this picture is delivering and it takes a special kind of fuckup to twist it into whatever they want to be offended by at the time.

Context. The most important factor of any media that people like to throw away to suit their agenda.
User avatar #60 - krobeles (11/24/2014) [-]
Ok, lets get one thing straight off the bat: I'm not some wacko feminazi cunt as your " to suit your warped worldview" would imply.
I am not trying to twist anything into anything else, and I have no wish to be offended, and I am not offended. I am fully capable of understanding the message this picture was intended to convey, as I tried to make clear in my first comment by saying "Sure, it was in no way the intetion of the picture".

Now that thats out of the way, are you implying it is impossible for a picture (or anything, really) to give off a message that the arthur didn't intend? That is total bullshit. Anything can give off unintended messages that the arthur didn't intend.
A wonderful example in my opinion, is multiple of the stories of H.P Lovecraft. I dont believe the dude was racist, but many of his stories come off that way, because blacks are frequently portrayed as uncivilised and basic people.
Was this the intention of Lovecraft? Probably not. is this the message people has read into his work, after his death? Yes.

No. Fuck you. If it were a picture of a little girl stand next to a coffin and the caption said "Don't worry mommy, I'll take care of dad," you wouldn't bat a fucking eye. The next time you hear about a group feminists who flip their collective lid over some truly trivial shit, swap the genders of the people involved. Lets try it out: "Woman scientist wears shirt with images of half naked men during a live stream." Huh, that's funny I don't give a shit. Do you? Probably not.
The truth is that 80% of the time we hear about these incidents of "sexism" is not because the offended parties truly care about equality. It's more likely that they simply got their feelings hurt. But because it's to much to ask this generation to swallow their pride and let it slide, they end up grabbing their pitchforks and take to the streets crying "Sexism! Misogyny! Inequality!" when in reality it's not about those things at all. So please, be more careful what you label as "sexist"

if I've learned anything from Funnyjunk the following two things have to be the most evident:

1#: People on this site is more than ready to assume the worst of people, just in an effort to piss themselves off. They enjoy being offended and upset.
2#: As soon as a comment has gotten a few red thumbs, the band-wagon begins, and people will mindlessly thumb down and harass the person with red thumbs, without critically evaluating the message that person is trying to convey.

The day I lost my respect for the people on this site, was the day I realized that these two facts are exactly what the Feminazi hate-cunts does aswell. You're not better than them, if you cant even see past your own nose once in a while. You just saw that my arguement wasn't 100% critical of the feminazi point of view, and you jumped on it like a retarded monkey. I am so tired of mindless idiots...

Yea, she probably does for a while, having just lost her husband and the father of her children. Obviously she will be taking just as much care for the child, but why does it mean she would be any less a strong, independent woman to need someone there when she's going through hell? I'm sure nobody would be offended one bit if it was the mother being buried and the boy saying he'll take care of his father.

The idea is not that any woman (mothers, daughters, wives, etc) NEEDS to be protected. The idea is that men have, do, and always will have a primal, irrational need to protect the women that they love and admire. For a young child, or even a grown man to vow to protect and take care of his mother, as in this instance, is not an issue of sexism; is not an issue of gender inequality; not an issue of who NEEDS protecting and who doesn't. It is absolutely and indefinitely a matter of the love of those around you. This is not, by the way, a rage post. This is a post to attempt and break the ignorance of this world one person at a time. Though I believe everyone does have a right to their own opinions i also believe in my right to think that someone elses opinion may be downright ridiculous. And this hannah chicks is just that. and yours as well for backing such ignorance.

the problem here is that you are looking at it too narrowly.
take what #133 said for example: families take care of each other

what you seem to miss is the intent of the message
that the family has lost someone. the mother has lost her husband, the boys father, and would most likely be in need of emotional support.

You're looking at the picture out of context to suit your warped worldview. You're wrong because there is no 'implied message' thats just bullshit in your head. Any moron can see the message this picture is delivering and it takes a special kind of fuckup to twist it into whatever they want to be offended by at the time.

Context. The most important factor of any media that people like to throw away to suit their agenda.
User avatar #60 - krobeles (11/24/2014) [-]
Ok, lets get one thing straight off the bat: I'm not some wacko feminazi cunt as your " to suit your warped worldview" would imply.
I am not trying to twist anything into anything else, and I have no wish to be offended, and I am not offended. I am fully capable of understanding the message this picture was intended to convey, as I tried to make clear in my first comment by saying "Sure, it was in no way the intetion of the picture".

Now that thats out of the way, are you implying it is impossible for a picture (or anything, really) to give off a message that the arthur didn't intend? That is total bullshit. Anything can give off unintended messages that the arthur didn't intend.
A wonderful example in my opinion, is multiple of the stories of H.P Lovecraft. I dont believe the dude was racist, but many of his stories come off that way, because blacks are frequently portrayed as uncivilised and basic people.
Was this the intention of Lovecraft? Probably not. is this the message people has read into his work, after his death? Yes.
#65 - azureeruza (11/24/2014) [-]
Of course it could give a message that the author didn't intend, but if you know damn well thats not what the author intended and the real message is clear as day then whatever the fuck else you think the picture means is redundant and getting offended by it is fucked up. These people are offended by things THEY MAKE UP IN THEIR OWN MIND.

People get offended by anything and expect people around them to apologize for not catering to their own unchecked mental disorders. Sorry if I'm a little irritated at it all but its become quite an epidemic as of late.
User avatar #72 - krobeles (11/24/2014) [-]
Sure. I agree. Getting mad at the unintended message when you know full well that that message was unintended, is silly as all hell. As I said in my first comment, btw...
That said, being blind or in denial as to the pressence of such an unintended message is equally as silly.

I dont blame you for going off on what you percieved as a feminazi. Those people really need a reality check. However, if I may request that you read more carefully what I write next time, as I feel like I did outline the fact that I didn't feel like rage at this unintended message was justified.

I wouldn't nessesarily say that that is a just assumption.
For all we know, her intention was merely to point out the unintended message, which she did.
#102 - azureeruza (11/24/2014) [-]
.... but unintended messages are warped and created in your own mind... anyone can think of anything to be offended by in this picture. Someone could pipe in and say something about how there should be an american flag on the casket or something. Like... why would you ever bring up your own mental interpretation of what you see if its not something you believe in firmly? Hannah should have just kept her mouth shut for ignoring the real message.
User avatar #106 - krobeles (11/24/2014) [-]
I dont believe so. She saw a message she percieved as being wrong, and she spoke out. Isn't that what we all do, when we see something we think is wrong?
Had she done so in an agressive and nasty fashion, I would agree, she would have been a fuckwit, but I dont think she did it in a particularily agressive manner.
#110 - azureeruza (11/24/2014) [-]
When we see something we see is wrong we should obviously question it, not jump to conclusions and defame something clearly made to invoke strong, good emotions. Hannah spit forth her verbal diarrhea without thinking about what the picture actually meant - the fact that it escaped her at all makes her a fucking idiot. All her comment does is take away the good intentions of the image by imposing her warped views on it.

Anyone capable of even a small amount of critical thinking wouldn't make that comment because they would understand the message being conveyed here. If the context clues escape you then you're either painfully stupid or autistic, neither of which excuses you from shitting up what is a noble message about american troops.

Now you wanna be civil?! Where did that come from? Fine, we'll have a discussion.

Women have to fear death too. Like, usually the fear of rape comes with the fear of death. And you can argue what you did when it comes to gangs messing with guys on the street, but that's the same for women by other women. Like, I know some girls who get messed with by the Latin Kings because they're Hispanic girls. I do not see how these issues even out. Maybe quantitatively, but not when it comes to the level of danger and effect. But if they did (and please clarify for me with legitimate examples), these issues have one thing in common: notions of masculinity, whether it be inter-gendered or intra-gendered. Those guys that beat you up started messing you because they thought you looked like a faggot. That's a hierarchy of sex right there: straight males have the right to attack homosexual males in an attempt to display their masculinity. Men are affected negatively by notions of masculinity also, but the effect of masculinity on males is seen more in the male treatment of women. And these notions of masculinity, while also in part perpetuated by women, are largely and more easily perpetuated by men. This is why feminism is here, and this is why women are more affected than men: men are taught masculinity, which shapes them as people and shapes their treatment of women, which leads to women taking more of the damage than men.

This is not creating a culture of victims. This is giving people something tangible to fight against. Naming a common cause of this type of gendered violence allows the fight to be fought more realistically. Naming a more specific root of a problem is more effective than just generalizing everything because violence is born and molded in different ways.

You're right about more women being accepted into universities, but when it comes to professional studies (law school, med school, etc.) less women are being accepted.

Hold on. I'm not done.
User avatar #63 to #62 - lifeisnocabaret (08/30/2014) [-]
A flaw of feminism is that there is not enough discussion on the oppression faced by people experiencing the intersectionality of being minority and a woman. That's in part why womanism was born, but many feminists incorporate intersectionality into their beliefs.

And that story about your mom? One success story doesn't mean equality. Many of the women in my family immigrated from Mexico and became pregnant as teenagers. Many of the women in my family were also raped or molested. My grandmother was beaten by her husband, and many of the women in my family and in this culture are expected to stay in the house and fulfill their roles as women. This isn't just limited to my family, it's everywhere. These issues do exist.
User avatar #64 to #63 - krobeles (08/30/2014) [-]
Alright, lets try something alittle different.
We can agree that women face some issues, yes? We can also agree that men face some issues, yes? We can furthermore agree that they share a number of common issues and that atleast a few of them share a common cause? If we can agree on this, why are we having this discussion in the frame of womens issues and why is the movement called Feminism?

To a degree, I agree with you on the masculinity thing. I have this skirt that I think I love just lovely in, but I rarely find it aproriate to wear that, because I know what people will think of a dude in a skirt. And thats sort of my issue with the feminist movement. I am not saying that women dont face issues and I am not saying the issues they do face are allways insignificant. But forming a humanitarian movement which attacks a grand social problem, but to face solely on the issues faced by one gender, is subtle sexism in and of itself.

Its also important to note that assholes and idiots will always exist. I see alot of these feminists attacking the "How not to get raped" things, with stupid ******** like "Dont teach women not to get raped, teach not to rape!", which is just silly.
We could apply this logic to common acts and thievery and see it fall apart. "Dont tell me to lock my door, tell thieves not to rob my house!". It is true that thieves and thugs never have the right to rob/rape you, but if you dont take steps to pretend and desentavise them from doing so, then you automatically forfiet a small part of your right to complain.
And in that same regard, I dont go around spouting ******** like "Teach people not to assault men people in skirts with long hair!", I just accept that such savage behavior is inherent in some particularily nasty people, and find ways to prevent it myself. I own a few weapons in my home, and I know a basic few things of self defence.

I dont believe that feminism gives women "something tangible to fight against". It provides a nebulous threat of the ominous "Patriarchy" and "Male-opression" to fight against. Since the easily explained (very dumbed down) cause this is white males, you suddenly have alot of these women who feel disenfranchised and run-down, who suddenly find something to point at and go "Thats the cause of all my problems!". Since they've forgotten to mention that the thing they're fighting against hurts all parts of society equally, these women never really stop to consider if perhaps they're attacking the problem from the wrong angle or if they're attacking the wrong people.

Just as you say that one success story doesn't a trend make, I dont feel like your family experience is anymore valid an example. Rot festers in places in which it is not cleaned out, and if there has been an unfortunate trend in your family of abuse, then it is a given that it will continue unless someone makes an effort to cut out the rot.

Ultimately, what I said about feminism not not attacking the right issues can be linked to this. If what you claim happened to your family is the general trend amongst Mexican/African famillies, then that is a serious problem which needs to taken care of. However, it seems to me that the general feminist movement are far more interested in applying their efforts towards comparatively harmless videogames and TV-shows, which are totally and entirely insignificant in comparison to actual family abuse and rape.

This leads me to believe that the new feminist movement isn't really about equality, but rather just a fandom-esque circlejerk in which its members are more concerned with the tiny minute issues they might concievably face, rather the actual big and serious issues which actually needs their attention.

Well, to comment on the civil discussion thing, taking a few minutes to play a game of tower defence, and making a conceded effort to appear less of an angry shouty person in order to facillitate more constructive debate, does its thing rather well. Also, I largely view insults and shouty-debates as a form of humor. So long as I'm just trying to trying to get a rail out of people, I insult them. Theres a certain art to a well constructed and imaginative insult, I find. However, if the says or does something that belies the potential for actually interesting debate, its another matter entirely.
User avatar #65 to #64 - lifeisnocabaret (08/30/2014) [-]
We're having this discussion in the frame of women's issues because it does effect women in a more detrimental way and it *is* more perpetuated by men. I mentioned that men go through oppressions also, like the pressure to be masculine, but many of those pressures are self-perpetuated and the result is displayed in their relationships toward women. And it is called feminism because femininity is not limited to women. It is not subscribed to one gender or sex.

The concept of a humanitarian movement is good in theory, but there's issues in that we wouldn't be able to prevent the perpetuation of oppression without knowing where it comes from. Let's take gangs as an example. A lot of inner city groups are preaching to kids that "violence is bad," something everyone has been hearing for the longest time. However, things like this aren't working. What works instead is legislation that targets poverty and expands opportunity and education, which is keeping kids off the street. We can have a whole anti-violence movement, but fighting violence in general is too grand of a scale to address realistically. Narrowing down oppression allows us to take the fight one step at a time. Not to mention that forming groups like these also give people a sense of community in what they're facing.

Hold on I"m not done
User avatar #66 to #65 - lifeisnocabaret (08/30/2014) [-]
Okay, honestly with the "don't teach women how to not get raped, teach not to rape" thing, I only agree 50%. Yeah, we do have to put more of the focus in preventing sexual assault on the perpetrator, but we also need to teach everyone how to stay safe and stay away from risky behaviors in a way that doesn't result in someone saying, "well, she was hanging with the wrong crowd, so maybe she wouldn't have gotten raped if she wasn't where she was" or something like that. Victims see enough of a reason to blame themselves without stuff like this being said. And if by "complain" you mean be angry or upset, then you do still have a right to complain, because while steps could have been taken to prevent stuff like this, the perpetrator could have *not* raped the victim. You mention "teach people not to assault men in skirts with long hair." While I am sorry you were assaulted, and while this should NOT have happened to you, there is no trend of men wearing skirts and getting assaulted. There is a big trend of women and men getting raped by males though.

Feminism exists past the internet, past funnyjunk, past 4chan and past tumblr. Don't make the mistake of wrongly labeling a whole group of people because of popular opinion on these websites. True feminists are not attacking anyone. White males are pointed at (not attacked) as a cause because (1) they have the most power in society, and (2) the fact that most don't have to deal with discrimination based on sex, race or gender creates a feeling of disdain in the white male community for these people that are fighting these issues. Honestly, that's how it is. If you're more exposed to racism, you'd care more about ending it. The same goes with sexism. I mean, look at funnyjunk. The largest community here is white, male and straight. Look at how much easier this anti-feminism thing floated compared to a place like tumblr, where a good fraction of the users are female and not white.

Hold on

I was wary about mentioning my family, but I thought it was okay since I don't know you and you don't know me. I can assure you that these issues are not limited to my family, and please refrain from comparing them to "rot," even if you do see it as fit.

The grand feminist movement is not focused on video games and such. The internet/tumblr feminist movement is. And I definitely wouldn't argue these video games and whatever are harmless. I'm gonna make a cliche argument, but just because it's cliche doesn't mean it's not true: it hurts self esteem. Seeing all these sexy girls in video games, music videos, and everywhere else in the ******* media sucks. Seeing guys drool over those girls also sucks. Women are oversexualized and we're pressured to look like them. It's cliche but it's true.

Feminism is not a circle jerk. I'm just saying feminism concerns more than tumblr and the internet.

Okay now I'm done
User avatar #68 to #67 - krobeles (08/30/2014) [-]
The thing about teaching people "not to rape" though, is that that is impossible. As I said, there will allways be assholes, and they know full well that rape is wrong. They just dont care, because they're egotistical asshats.
I was just useing myself as an example (I've never been assaulted while wearing the skirt, actually), of something that would be equally silly.
Of course you still have some right to complain - it is still wrong to rape or assault people regardless of what they wear or how they behave - but you have to admit that the complaint falls alot shorter if the person in question took active steps to put himself/herself in harms way to begin with?
You could liken it to a person climbing onto a scaffolding and then falling down and breaks both legs. Is it regrettable that the person fell and broke both legs? Yes. Was it rather expected, based on circumstance and the poor safety measure the person had set up? Yes.

I am not so sure about the "Feminism exists past the internet"-thing. Of course it is reasonable to assume that there is the odd feminist every now and again, but on a grander scale, the only people I've ever met who claimed themselves feminists is two girls who associate with the Tumblr crowd on the internet. They're more a physical extension of the internet-Tumblr-feminists than actual feminists. Other than them, I've never anyone who claimed themselves feminist. It might because all of what you've happened is more of an issue in the states, than it is in Denmark, but it still doesn't do much to make me convinced that actual - none-Tumblr - feminists actually exists.
This is why I largely allow the Tumblr-feminists view to be indicative of all feminists. I've never met a non-tumblr feminists in all my 21 years, and I therefor dont really have faith that they exist outside of the internet.

Which is actually another thing I've come to consider. Since many of the Tumblr feminists seem to be American and preoccupised with strictly American issues, I am starting to consider that perhaps America might suffer infinitely more from these issues discriminatory issues than the European countries (Well, Denmark, atleast). But I dont see the Tumblr-feminists treating it as an American problem dispite the fact that it might be a strictly American problem. This comes back to what I mentioned with the feminists being an angry hate-club which're just looking for their next big issue to be offended over. I'm sure that if they stopped for five minutes and looked at some of the silly things they get offended over, they would see how silly it is. Instead though, they're much too busy yelling and shouting angryly at game developers, who had the audacity to make their female character busty.

I wasn't comparing your family to rot. I was comparing the aparent trend of violence and rape to rot. Just because a person commits a rotten action, does not a rotten person make. I actually intended to write something along those lines in my comment, but I must've forgot. Sorry if you took it the wrong way.

As I explained above, I dont think that there really is a true divide between "the grand feminist movement" and the tumblr feminists.
If the video game thing hurts the self esteem of some people, then I honestly think that they those need to grow a spine, sorry to say. There are dudes in video games too, who are insanely buff and masculin beyond anything realistic. The dudes that aren't, are insanely intelligent and sucessful in busness or whatever. Should men be offended at this depiction of dudes?
Thats why we call it fiction. Its not suposed to be taken as seriously as some feminists do and claim other women do as well. Its an idealized version of a woman marketet to a predominantly white male teen audience. What do you think sells well with white teenage dudes? Tits, of course. Its not a question of discrimination or objectification, its a question of marketing. White teenage guys likes tits, so the corporations gives them tits.
Add this to the fact that almost all of my female friends I've asked directly if they feel offended or objectified by fictional works, says they find it silly and of course they dont. I think this problem lies with the self-esteem of the people who complain about it. Its not that these images and materials cause bad self esteem in women, its that these images remind women who allready suffer from bad self esteem, how ****** they feel about themselves. Sorry if this seems a bit cynical; but we cant pander to a group of mentally ill people, who complain about something no person with proper self esteem and self image would find the least bit offensive. The lowest common denominator should not dictate the direction the crowd moves.
This is not to say that I nessesarily condone the way females are portrayed in games and general media. I think they hamstrings themselves, by reducing females in the way they do. This goes for men aswell. No interesting plots are going to arise from a story in which all females are card-board cutouts with latex tits plastered onto, and all males are gruff handsom flawless Adonis wanna-bes who can solve 3rd grade differential equations in their heads while bench pressing 4 times their own weight.
Outside of the detrimental effects to storytelling that it has, I cant view this as anything other than one of those silly null-issues I complain about the feminists being all too keen to focus on, while ignoring the grander problems.

I dont believe that men systematically opress women. Not here in the rest anyway. Those in power opress those not in power. Its been like that forever and it'll likely continue to be like that a long time into the future too. A good bunch of those in power are white males, which is a left-over from a time in which white males did actually opress everyone not white and not male. Non-white non-males just haven't had the chance to bleed up through the molasses-like power structure that we've instituted. Thats not opression, thats just a matter of fact.

I feel like you handicap the conversation by framing it this context, when what you're really complaining about is a grander social problem, not singularily suffered by women. It would be like discussing war casualties as a mens issue, because the majority of soldiers are men. Dont you think the female soldiers would be slightly pissed off, about the fact that they're role and their pains in the army is effectively being ignored?

See? No. It shouldn't matter if people took "active steps to put themselves in harm's way." We're way to focused on that. If "harm's way" qualifies as being with a man late at night, than that vilifies men way more than anything else. We need to teach people not to rape. And rape is a preventable thing, because the main reason men--and yes, the majority of perpetrators are men--rape is because they want to feel power. Power, of course, is a characteristic of masculinity. The male need to feel power is the male need to feel masculine. Again, the reason this whole feminism thing exists is to fight trends. There is a trend of men who rape. The is a trend of women getting raped. There is a trend of masculinity being pushed by men and there is a trend of men needing to feel power. This is not silly.
The connection to the scaffolding isn't valid because there is no perpetrator. An accident is different than flat out assault. You cannot, by any means, blame a victim like that. No one deserves rape and we shouldn't treat any case as lesser because "she was wearing a skirt too short" or "she was out with the wrong crowd." That's always the first thing people think about--what the girl was doing wrong--rather than why the guy raped her or what he shouldn't have done. And how many times can guys catch themselves doing the same thing with no consequence? Men can be out late at night with women. Men can walk around with no shirt and not be raped. It just happens on a much larger scale with women.

hold on

A big part of the feminism we're discussing is feminism in America. I can definitely contest that feminism exists outside of the internet. I know many feminists who are not using social networks in their practice at all. There are many thinkers--bell hooks, for example--that are held up to a high standard and that would disagree with the things that the "tumblr feminists" say. If you really aren't exposed to this group and are actually ignorant to it, then how can this part of your argument have a good foundation?

There is a problem with that. You mention a white male audience when it comes to video games, but about half of the gaming audience is women. And women are sexualized more in games, that's just it. I'll take Resident Evil as an example. Leon and Chris have big muscles, yes, but look at the females in the game. Clare is wearing tight clothes and whatever, but what bothers me most is that in every RE games she's in, the camera focuses on her ass and pans up her body at least like 3 times per game. And look at Ada (if you never played these games you should google these characters). She runs around in a ******* long red, sexy dress and high heels in RE4, and it is clear that Leon is caught in a spell because of her. It's always Leon sexualizing her, not the other way around. And the villains in RE. The majority of the male villains are old men, like Salazar in RE4 and Birkin in the Darkside Chronicles--while the female villains are like, almost naked and sexy in a weird monster way. But if you still think that "males are just as sexualized as females," and if you have a problem with it, say something. Don't get mad at other people for saying something they have a problem with by claiming you have a problem with something else--fix it.
And all of this oversexualization is related to MASCULINITY. That's what I've been saying. The oversexualization of men is also related to masculinity and the idea that men can't be heroes unless they're masculine. hold on

These video games enforce these notions of masculinity both ways and in turn enforce notions of power. It's all about the mindset these things perpetuate.

It is oppression because it is a matter of fact. That's how ingrained it is--we believe we can't fight it. You can't say oppression doesn't exist, even in places like America, because there is a type of person that succeeds and there is a type of person that doesn't, and it mostly doesn't boil down to laziness or true inferiority. It's about who's "at risk" to fail and who's not "at risk." Not everyone has equal opportunity and not everyone is born to the same circumstances, and it mostly depends on race, class and gender, and that's why these individual tiers have individual activism groups. We can't just say "well people are always gonna be oppressed" and not do anything about it, because no where in America's history (and hardly anywhere in world history) were white, straight males oppressed. Everyone else was.

For the last part of your argument, again, females are more negatively affected by this. Masculinity is related to power and sex and it is displayed in the male treatment of women. I've addressed this already.

Its more of a personal thing, actually.
I view the "Bronies" as the greezy fat neck bearded Otaku-wannabies who attend cons and cosplay girls.
