lol, I’m worse ;)
It’s Mental Health Week from October 7th to 13th and it’s Mental Health Day on the 10th. It’s main intention is to raise awareness about mental health issues and I figured we could do something here on Tumblr.
Mental health issues are often captured in the written word, both fiction and non-fiction. Everything from self-harm to suicide, depression to anxiety, eating disorders to substance abuse, and more. During the course of the week, if you are interested in participating, we will read a book that concerns mental health in some way. Create posts about your reading experience of whichever book you choose and, if you feel comfortable, share your own personal experiences with mental illness (if you have any). The point of the week is to shed the stigma of mental health and encourage support for those who need it. Tumblr is like a community in itself and I like to think we will all support each other through whatever we’re going through. Most importantly, don’t forget to take care of yourself mentally as well as physically - don’t be scared to talk to the people around you or get help if you need to, and reward yourself with regular TLC.

THIS EXACTLY THIS.
Feminists actually believe in men because if we didn’t think like this, our fight would be worthless. We believe men aren’t fucking assholes. We are men’s ally. That’s why the way some people float misandry like it’s funny makes me really mad. I don’t know. I tried to find the quote but I can’t find it so oh well.
okay but why would it make our fight worthless? if your enemy turns out to be evil, you just give up? I suppose that makes sense for hetero women, because if you can’t make your man treat you better, why bother, right? You’re sticking with men no matter what. It’s clear from this comic that your ultimate end goal is staying with men instead of improving women’s condition. That’s the only way it would make sense for your fight to be “worthless” if men aren’t the poor misunderstood angels you think they are. But the point of feminism is not reforming men and never has been. It’s not about convincing men to be nicer to us.
"I love men so I’m a feminist!!!" You know who else loves men? The entire rest of the world. Being a feminist should mean that you recognize the way men treat us like shit, so it’s not illogical for people to assume we hate men. All this is trying to do is make feminism less threatening to men. But that shouldn’t be what you care about. If your main goal is appearing not to hate men (unlike those dyk- oh I mean manhating female supremacists) then what makes you different from any other woman trying to appease the patriarchy?
It really pisses me off that so many “feminists” are centering their ~feminism~ around men, instead of, I don’t know, women? If all you care about is praising men then you aren’t a feminist.
Furthermore, men ARE intelligent. Intelligent enough to realize that actually, an equal society would be pretty shitty for them. Otherwise why would they violently resist feminism? They don’t give a shit about society as a whole, because that would mean they care about women - they don’t.
