"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….
First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.
In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.
In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”
TYPICAL YOUTUBER WHITE BOYS SPEAKING THE ACTUAL TRUTH AND NOT BEING DICKS AND WOW WHAT IS THIS I HAD TO WATCH IT TWICE TO MAKE SURE I WASN’T IMAGINING THINGS WOW
Man, I was worried that they were going to take this in a bad direction, but their single biggest point was something that they kinda concluded towards the end of the video, like they didn’t plan on actually saying this one line: “Really nice guys don’t call themselves Nice Guys.” Wonderful.
Guys who are claiming to be nice guys are usually looking for something in return so they’re not genuinely being nice.
THATS IT I FOUND MY HUSBAND THE SEARCH IS OVER HERE HE IS, WORLD
THE ANSWER IS NO UNLESS YOU ARE THIS MAN
No in all seriousness though, I’m so glad to hear men acknowledge this.
You aren’t single because you’re “too nice.” You’re single because you’re an entitled, passive-aggressive piece of shit who thinks that women owe you sex for treating them like people. You’re even more of a jerk than the guys you whine about, but too much of a delusional coward to own up to it.
You are not nice. You are a predator. There’s this thing called coercive rape, it’s when you use guilt or other non-physical means to corner somebody into sleeping with you. And guess what, you “nice guys” thrive off of that tactic. But nah you held the door open for her so you totally earned the right to stick your dick in her. Such a gentleman oh yes.
Fuck you. Except not, because you don’t deserve to ever get laid. Prick.
If any of you are not going to watch this because of what you think it will contain, I will assure you that this is the best and these guys get it.
things life is too short for: - hating yourself - pretending to laugh at “jokes” that are actually just bigoted statements - not singing along to your favorite songs - waiting hours to text someone back just to look cool - bad coffee - bad books - mean people - body shaming - letting other people dictate your life - larry’s storyline
