I'll be taking a break from the site, at least until it finds a new punching bag than feminism. I want to keep fighting the good fight, but I'm tired. To paraphrase Theoden, what can one do against such reckless hate? I came here to be entertained, not to have to defend women's rights and basic common sense on every third post. This isn't quitting in a huff, it's that can't keep commenting, but I can't in good conscience be on the site and say nothing. Goodbye admin, goodbye all, for the moment.

Yes, which is why I put quotes around the word "Feminists". That's what they call themselves, but I agree with you 100% that they do not represent traditional feminist beliefs.
User avatar #259 - twistedwoodthing (05/20/2014) [-]
I'm glad we can agree on that!
#286 - devout feminist (05/20/2014) [-]
Feminism has become conflated with the idea of women > men misogyiny. I would be looking for a new word, frankly.
User avatar #292 - twistedwoodthing (05/20/2014) [-]
Why, because of the misconceptions of people who's understanding of gender equality come from sites like this? Did muslims change the name of their religion after 9/11? Would you change your name just because someone decides they'd like to call you Susan rather than Steve?

Feminism has its roots in an attempt to address systemic (not perpetrated by individual dudes, but the society we were all born into) inequalities faced by women. I see no reason at all for a name change.
User avatar #251 - timmywankenobi (05/20/2014) [-]
ti's a fair representation of modern feminism, just not classic feminism.
User avatar #260 - twistedwoodthing (05/20/2014) [-]
Feminists wanted, and still want, gender equality. Movements change over time, just like the societies they try to change, just like the insults from detractors ("bluestockings" to "feminazis") change. But the fundamental precepts remain the same. The belief is that people are not limited by their gender, and I think most people agree with that.
Unless people are actually challenging that concept (feminism), they aren't actually arguing with ideas, they're just pointing out flaws in the adherents (individual feminists).

It's ad hominem, which is both easy and useless.
User avatar #277 - knucklebunny (05/20/2014) [-]
I just view modern feminism as an attempt to establish matriarchy in society. It was different in the past. I respect what women fought for in the 1900's. But I can't say the same for todays feminists.
User avatar #263 - timmywankenobi (05/20/2014) [-]
well there are problems with some of the core beliefs of feminism as well particularly the Hypothesis all men are oppressing all women through an invisible patriarchy that favors men by giving extra rights and special treatment to women in most areas of society epically legally. Also feminism can't be about equality because ti claims all women might fight all men because men are the Bourgeoisie and women are the Proletariat and all crimes the proletariat commit against the bourgeoisie are righteous and justified .

Such a foundation cannot create a house of equality of opportunity ever.
User avatar #279 - twistedwoodthing (05/20/2014) [-]
I don't think Marxist terminology is helpful here: is classicism an issue, and potentially interrelated with gender? Sure. But I don't think you can - or that feminists do - associate women simply with the proletariat and men with the bourgeoisie.
Also, it's a misconception that feminists believe all men are oppressing women. It's not like men do it by virtue of their existence. The problem is the social structures we've inherited.
In fact, the gender biases of society that feminists oppose hurt men too! The assumption men should "be tough", preventing them from accessing mental health services. Court assumptions that women are "naturally" better caregivers. The painting of women as passive sex objects and men as sex fiends. These are limiting gender stereotypes that should be rejected for everyone's benefit.
Feminism isn't the threat to men people think it is, it can make things better for both genders.
User avatar #290 - knucklebunny (05/20/2014) [-]
I agree. But, I think it's best to add that Feminism "can make things better for both genders if used correctly at the right time". Not like in this case where the poor fellah was just trying to sit on a bus in a comfy position.
User avatar #293 - twistedwoodthing (05/20/2014) [-]
True facts, but reading the initial comment I didn't even think it was a feminist issue. Just people being rude on the bus. But contextualize it as a gender issue and everyone loses their minds...
User avatar #299 - knucklebunny (05/20/2014) [-]
Oh. I read the title of the post before reading the comments. The title established that the content was about feminism. So I read the whole thing with "feminism" in mind.
User avatar #288 - timmywankenobi (05/20/2014) [-]
I agree with most of what you are saying but I would point out painting all men as sex fiends is entirely feminist doing in order to fear-monger other women into line with feminist thought. Also the feminist lobby are the biggest opponents to shared parenting and reform of the family court system,ending MGM and wish to end due process for men accused of crimes against women. these thing hardy sound like the actions of a equality minded group to me. I judge groups by their action not their words, words are cheap and often hold no meaning to people saying them only for political gains.
User avatar #300 - twistedwoodthing (05/20/2014) [-]
Painting men as sexual fiends is only logically acceptable if you a) have negative views on sexuality itself and b) assume that women are to be sexually passive. It involves being anti sex and assuming women aren't empowered, which is pretty much the opposite of feminism. Using it as a scare tactic would just be stupid (I'm not saying some people don't do it, but I'm saying they're wrong).
Similarly, it's not like there's an official bureau for all of feminism, some groups are going to oppose custody laws. I'm just making the point that we have a lot more in common than we do to fight about.
User avatar #498 - timmywankenobi (05/20/2014) [-]
yes all that is true but I would draw you attention to the "Rape Culture Scam" they are running in the Us and Canada the pump the TV and Radio full of nonsense and fear and complete made up statistics like 1/4 or 1/5 or 2/4 (it depends what feminist group paid for the ad campaign) college women are raped when in reality the odd of a college age woman being raped at a party or on campus is closer to 1 in 2000 in bad cities like Detroit and LA and 1 in 4800 in better cities, and here in Montreal it's closer to 1 in 8000 ! and that includes date rape,drugged drinks,the woman being too drunk to consent (even if the man was drunk too) and violent rape. Yet these feminists would have you believe rape of women is epidemic even though the police say it's at a historical low. to counter this feminists claim 99.8% of women do not report their rape. How can they know a unknown ? for year they have been spouting shit about men "all men are potential rapists ! " "don't be that guy" "all men are capable of rape so treat them like they have !" , "all men are potential pedophiles so if you see a man near children confront him ! " "all men want sex all them time they are animals" etc . These are scare tactics and demonizing men to gain support, and it worked since the feminist lobby got the president to say 1/5 on TV despite it being completely false in order to gain feminist support and donations for the democrats.

I don't know *why* it picked up on that - I wouldn't think google was tailoring it to show me those results as it's not really my thing.

Ran out of room to reply:
Anyway, I currently live in what was my family home with my siblings and two other renters (my parents moved, we live in the house and pay rent). As for the travelling, I did a 6 month study abroad program in France a couple years back, and had the option to travel around a bit. I lived in Dijon, in Burgundy, which isn't quite as sketchy as the south.
As for Fargo, I can't recommend it enough. It's hilarious, and at times really intense. I like my humour pretty dark so it works for me.

That's pretty sweet. When I lived in the UK being of age I used every opportunity to travel around. Especially Italy, I love Italy. I still do that, to a certain extent. In fact I recently moved to Washington DC.
User avatar #37 to #36 - twistedwoodthing (12/05/2013) [-]
Oh cool, spent about two weeks in Northern Italy. Rome, Florence, Sienna, Venice. I went on a bus tour that was primarily comprised of retired aussies and kiwis, they were a lark.
What are you doing in Washington DC? I suppose the standard assumption is something to do with government.
User avatar #38 to #37 - thebestpieever (12/05/2013) [-]
No, my contract my then-current employer ended with and at the same time I had friction with the girl I was living with in Missouri. So, since I've been travelling all around since I was 15, I just packed my things in a container, got up on my bike and decided on a spot on the map. I'm looking for a job, but I have enough saved to live for about 10 months.

It's a reference to a character from the Gormenghast books (if you don't know them, it's just about the strangest fantasy series I've ever read. Only the first, and maybe second, books are worth reading because the author was partially insane by the time he wrote the third). You can just call me Thing, or Chloe if you prefer.
Why did you decide to go by Thebestpieever? And shall I call you pie?

I like Chloe; Chloe's pretty.
Well, I used to listen to watch this show where the usernames would sent in silly things that happened whilst they played videogames and the hosts would often comment on the usernames of the senders. So, I thought this would spark some nice comment.
As for what you call me, yeah Pie's fine, you can also call me Walker.

The writing is amazing, but it's not easy going. Mervyn Peake was also an illustrator, so he describes a lot of scenes very meticulously. It's great for visualizing the enormous, gothic castle where it all takes place, and the characters he describes are by turns complex and over the top. Sometimes all the description is overwhelming and you'd give anything for a bit of simple dialogue. But I've yet to read a series that felt so much like there was an actual world behind it.

What are you reading right now? I'm always on the lookout for recommendations.

I've been reading a book called "Jam" by Ben Croshaw. It's... It's alright. I'm about 60 pages in and so far there's been some really obvious problems narration-wise to the point where I often have to go back a few pages because I've found myself completely lost about that the characters are currently doing. The stream of conciousness narration is very well done, when it's there, but it has a very inconsistent style of narration and tone. It is a very good comedy when it tries to be one, but the more serious stuff feels haphazard and more like an attempt by the author to be validated rather than any serious story he wanted to tell.

Oh cool, Yahtzee's book! (or one of them anyway, I think he has two now) Yeah, I'm sorry to hear it has issues, although I'd like to read it. I love his game reviews, I was wondering how the sense of humour would translate to a full length novel.
User avatar #13 to #12 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
You know Yahtzee, that's co cool. I never read Mogworld, but from what I hear most people liked it better than Jam.. The humour is there, and really well done, though.
So I take it you play videogames?

If I manage to save up for a new laptop any time in the next year, though, I'd like to play Amnesia, I love horror. I'd like to try to get a copy of bioshock, too, since everyone raves about it and my brother might let me borrow his 360 after exam period. Do you have any recommendations?

So you like games, reviews of games, reading and silly pictures in funnyjunk. What else do you like?
User avatar #18 to #17 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
Science Fiction and Horror, (both reading it, writing it, and watching movies), the Daily Show and the Colbert Report, webcomics and baking. I've only recently taken up playing MTG and Dungeons & Dragons, but I love them, and music-wise, I've got a very mongrel taste but lately I've been listening to increasing amounts of metal.
And what about you sir? Likes? Dislikes? Pet Peeves? Quirks?
User avatar #19 to #18 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
Horror an fantasy, also reading, writing and watching it. Game Of Thrones, The Graham Norton Show, Friends (The only shows I watch that haven't created a super invasive fandom that has alienated the rest of the internet) Music: Everything, really, but I'm mainly a fan of Rock'n'roll. Also a big fan of metal, though, Black Sabbath is my second favourite band. I'm also big on motorcycles: riding, fixing, looking, buying, all of it.
As for pet peeves and quirks: I can't think of any pet peeve that's big enough to mention, and I have waaay too many little quirks.
Sir, I like that; you are a very refined woman, milady.

I noticed some Dr Who on your profile (I was creeping - best way to find good stuff on Funny Junk is to browse your friends' uploads/favourites.) I likes me some doctor but I'm way behind, and I'm not sure I could ever warm up to Matt Smith. Tennant's my favourite, in part because I so respect him as an actor (goddamn brilliant hamlet), and in part because I have a fangirlish crush. Don't judge me.
Speaking of, I got some serious feels from some of the stuff in your faves, esp. "Love" and "Ancient Wisdom." that's good taste right there.
Black Sabbath is actually playing in my city next year, but I haven't heard enough of them to know if I should try to get tickets. Do you have any album suggestions?
Also, you mentioned moving to the states, and given the references to Dr. Who and Treacle, I'm guessing from somewhere in the UK? Basically, what accent should I be reading your comments in, haha?
User avatar #21 to #20 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
When it comes to Black Sabbath it comes like this:
The first two: Black Sabbath and Paranoid are masterpieces; superb albums, don't think I've hear anything like them. The third, Master of Reality is great but nothing close. Vol. 4 is good. The Fifth, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is also great. Sixth, Sabotage is also good. The seventh, Technical ******* is very good but it sounds nothing like what comes before or after. The eight just blows. The Ninth, Heaven and Hell is also a masterpiece but it is heaver than anything they've done. And the tenth is also great, Master of Reality level. After that, they have some good stuff, some bad stuff but nothing as noteworthy (I would suggest "Cross Purposes" "13" and "Headless Cross).

When it comes to the accent... that's weird. I was born in Spain, but I lived in the UK till I was six. Then we moved to Spain for the briefest time (like 4 months) but I was in the hospital so it might as well have been the UK. Then we moved to Mexico. Then I went back to the UK and now America. So... yeah, my accent is as if a Spaniard tried and half succeeded to speak in a midlands accent. It's a shame that the whole ordeal messed up my English accent 'cause I don't even speak Spanish all that well.

With you I guess I can imagine (Being oot and aboot with some loonies in your pocket, eh) what kind of accent you have.

On the theme of Doctor Who, I like Smiths performance but I think that most of the stories he's been in have been rubbish save for about 10 throughout his whole run.

Well in that case I'll probably start with the first two, and Heaven and Hell (I tend to like it pretty heavy, so that sounds like my direction.)
As to accent, I never used to think I had one until I became friends with some Americans on an exchange. We sounded just the same until it came to words like "out and about", whereupon they'd giggle at how I said it. The way they said it, to me, sounded like flapping your mouth open to catch flies. I actually visited a bit of England once, only a little under a week in London (and only a weekend in Spain) but I'd love to go back someday. Ever been North of the US border?
User avatar #32 to #31 - thebestpieever (12/05/2013) [-]
I'm a big fan of the way they speak in the Americas overall. From the southern states to Canada, it all sounds really cool to me. Also... I apologise in the name of the British Nation for anything you may have seen in London if you went anywhere near the east side of town.

I've been to Canada three times. My parents used to own a little house near Whitehorse, so we'd sometimes go there in the winter to ski and stuff. And just once I went over the border while I was faffing about in NYC after a work trip. I liked it, it really is my type of place. Sunny and warm locales just aren't my style.

I don't know how people can live in tropical places, the lack of seasonal change would send me haywire. I think it's a deep-rooted, physiological thing. And aside from the confusing metro system London was quite pleasant, I saw worse things in France daily.
I haven't yet been to Whitehorse and that end of the country (I'm from the east coast), but I'm trying to save to go there this summer.
As to accents, there are a lot of good ones. I'd have to say my favourite out of anywhere is a slight Indian or Irish accent, although for North America there's some newfie accents that are surprisingly musical. Have you ever seen the movie Fargo? The accents in it are exaggerated but hilarious.
User avatar #34 to #33 - thebestpieever (12/05/2013) [-]
Yeah, France is... really rough. Not exactly nice.
I had assumed you lived with your family, and, by extension you'd go on holiday with them. But apparently I was wrong; do you live on your own?
Also, no, I really want to watch it but it's on that infinite queue of "Damn it I was born in the 90's so there are 70 years of good movies to catch up on".
User avatar #16 to #15 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
Yeah, I feel you. I used to be a spoilt rich kid and a super ******** gamer and then some stuff happened and I had to get a job and I have the time to play like a game a month, if that. I still watch all the reviews and stuff.

For PC I would recommend my favourite game: Fallout 3, the sequel New Vegas. Alan Wake, it's not perfect but it is unlike anything I've seen. Bioshock, definitely, Infitine is goot but not as much as one and you should avoid 2. If you like tactical games I would recommend Xcom. If you like Fable I would suggest Skyrim since it takes the freedom aspect to the extreme and in the opposite side I would suggest Mass Effect since it takes the narrative and customisation also to the extreme.

Sigh, sad confession bear time: I spend a lot of time on the internet, on sites like this, reading comics, watching reviews etc that have to do with video games, but my brother is the real gamer in my house. I don't think I've played anything seriously since Fable 2, and haven't been better at him at a game since Starfox 64. I'd play computer games, but my laptop wouldn't be able to handle it. So, essentially, I'm immersed in gaming culture, love talking and hearing about it, but can't play.
I am the filthiest of casuals.
