"Yeah, but Forrest is nothing is nothing but a self-entitled Nice Guy™ and anyone who agrees with this is nothing but a flaming misogynist shitlord."
It’s nice that they preserved some of the initial pessimism and bitterness of the book in the film.
By the “not all men” logic, Russian Roulette is a perfectly safe game to play. Sure, one of the chambers has a bullet in it…
but not all chambers
Are you saying one in six men are rapists, criminals, etc.?
This makes me so angry. YES, 98% of rapists (both male & female victims) are men. This does NOT mean that 98% of men are rapists. In fact, it’s estimated that only 6% of the male population are rapists. An estimated 25-30% of the female population have been raped. An estimated 10% of all rape victims are men.
So no, not all men. Nowhere near all men. A perpetrator is more likely to be male, but that has nothing to do with the male population. Studies show that the average rapist has around 6 victims. So it’s not men you need to be worried about.
However, the statement, “yes all women,” is true. With 1/3 of us being raped, it’s definitely a problem. But you can’t place the blame on men when 1/10 rape victims are men and only 3/50 men are rapists.
Oh gee, another ciswoman barely half my age engaged in half-assed methodology, how surprising.
When you include forced-to-penetrate, rape incidence is split 50-50 by CASAB, perpetration 60-40, and that’s NOT including institutional rape, so that means yes, men, cis men, are more likely to have been a victim of rape or sexual assault than ciswomen. They, and trans women, closeted or out, have also been dramatically less likely to see support or justice after same.
And before the inevitable bullshit argument to be levied (though your kapos tend to be better at deploying it than you):
There should be a law: as a discussion with a trans woman about a subject close to her life grows longer, the probability of her being compared to MRAs and/or TERFs approaches 1.
Oh hey, I was looking for this one. I didn’t know it existed, but I was looking for it.
fear and hatred of trans women is absolutely central to patriarchy. it underlies the most common acts of homophobia - every time someone gets called a faggot or bashed for being an effeminate male. it underlies the violent construction of masculinity - the orders to man up, don’t be a pussy, don’t act ‘like a woman.’ fear of trans women is the specter that our culture congers up to stifle empathy for women in little boys. it is used to demean and dismiss strong women both cis and trans.
to support transmisogyny, or to fail to support trans women, is to strengthen one of the central pillars of patriarchy. transmisogyny is a patriarchal act. it doesn’t matter who is doing it, the effect is to support patriarchy.
How exactly is cissexist misogyny used to demean cis women? Or is this just another callow cisfeminist attempt to enable the appropriation of the struggles of the actually unidirectionally oppressed?
That second one, prolly.
jesus fucking christ vk your politics are so reactionary itd be hilarious if it werent so sad
Possibly with actual facts or arguments instead of duckspeak. But whatever, wouldn’t want to cramp your style.
