I know you look at me and you just see another dead girl. I’m not Michonne, I’m not Carol, I’m not Maggie. I survived, and you don’t get it, because I’m not like you or them. But I made it!

This was actually said by a prominent member of the Men’s rights community on Reddit who then proceeded to get 24(!) upvotes:

Wearing a skirt has consequences. If we use state violence to protect women from the consequences of her choice to wear a skirt, we remove her agency. This man didn’t assault her, didn’t touch her… all he did was take a picture of what her choice in clothing exposed to the public.
How is that criminal to the point of deserving of state violence upon him?
This is saying that protecting women from the consequences of their choices in clothing is more important than men’s freedom.

Now that’s what I call a real men’s rights issue. Could you expect anything less from a hate group?

Mens Rights Activism: hard at work defending sexual harassment.

men’s rights: where a man’s right to sexually harass a woman based on whether they’ve decided she meets some standard of “modesty” she has no say in, should supersede a woman’s right to basic personal boundaries and human decency.
men’s rights: when a woman freely making the choice to do whatever she wants with her own body, not affecting anyone else in any way, needs to “accept the consequences of her actions”- but men who choose to harass women shouldn’t have to face any consequences for THAT choice, even though it hurts someone else.
men’s rights: a “movement” (purposeless online misogynistic circlejerk) where rights are defined as behaviors that you feel entitled to carry out without being even mildly criticized for it, no matter how many other people are negatively impacted by that behavior.
men’s rights: where being asked to show basic human decency towards women is “infringing” upon a man’s freedom not to do that, even though that is how a society is supposed to fucking function. because fuck them, you shouldn’t have to consider other human beings when you make your choices. how dare they?
men’s rights: you got yours (basic human rights). so fuck everybody else. now, let’s talk about how poor people don’t deserve to earn a living wage, because then the services you use every day might cost you an extra $20 per year.

men’s rights: a movement dedicated to preserving and forwarding the rights of men to continue the subjugation and abuse of women.

I’m so embarrassed to share a gender with these pieces of shit.

Embarrassed and furious.
