Great Figures of the Men’s Rights Movement

CollegeHumor Article
Willie Muse, illustrated by Shea Strauss 

On point. 

Here at
imnotamisandristbut
, we celebrate and honor these pioneers of the movement. It is thanks to them that we can speak up against misandry today.

"You plagiarized a sentence in an essay? Expelled & we’ll make it hard for you to enroll into another school ever again."

"You raped and assaulted a student on campus? You can come back to school."

fuck the education system

I will never NOT reblog this.

Whenever I hear the "Women are paid $.78 for the man’s $1" I flip it around.

Men make $1.22 for every woman’s $1.

It interests me that even the most common simple measure of gender inequality is firmly based on male-as-normative …

bisexual activist and queer theory blogger Patrick RichardsFink 

this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1

A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes

A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes

A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes

A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes

A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes

That’s some bullshit right there.

Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.

Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.

This is my favorite scene in all of television. This boy and this girl can’t stand each other. They fight every day. They tease and mock each other for all hours. And yet they care so much for each other that when one is hurting, the other is always there, and to me that’s a perfect relationship. Even though they fight, they still care.

Oh my god.

Found the creator’s original deviantart post where she posted these images.

In the description she links to some close-up photos, a work in progress post that shows you how she made them step by step, and her etsy page where you can buy one should you choose not to make your own.

White Heterosexuals in Love

Coming to theatres next spring, a love story that is vaguely forbidden between two kind of sarcastic, innocent cisgender people who grew up in middle class american families.

Based on a book featuring White People Almost Kissing
