I am not very well educated in the notion of crimes against women but neither is the average self proclaimed feminist. I understand that it is a diverse group, it's the extremists and the brainwashed I want to address. I enjoy the fact that there are more conservative people who actually see the bigger picture the extremists are trying to hide. Also keep in mind that extremist have their place with other extreme regimes, but the US is not one of those regimes.
Men do horrible things, some men have done horrible things, rape is still widely thought of as a crime against women. If you look up the statistics on actual government websites such as the CDC regarding rape you will find that the majority of rapes are indeed done by men onto women. I don't like this statistic, but I don't like the fact that the male victims get marginalized because of this either. The looming fact is that the statement, "rape is still widely thought of as a crime against women" distinguishes a difference in how the victims are treated, recognized, and represented. That statement is something extremists live by. Once someone says the man's problem isn't the issue here the fight doesn't become about fairness or equality it becomes about the well being of one group. I'm not saying than women don't deserve attention, I'm saying that everyone deserves it.
The bystander argument For those people who don't immediately try to stop a person from committing a crime such as rape or assault you are also a part of the problem and should share the same consequences. Fair enough, you were there and you watched your friend beat the crap out of someone innocent or attempt to rape someone or murder that you, in your power could have helped, you indeed share some blame and are a guilty bystander.
Let's take the common rape joke scenario (literally a common argument from feminist extremists) If you were with your friend and he made a rape joke and you do not immediately condone the joke you are just as guilty as a rapist. No, you're not, it's a joke, it's not a proclamation that one agrees with rape. They point out that it's mean and hurtful to the real victims who have had their life threatened. However, the same should be said for example instances of shootings, if one really feels that passionate towards condoning a rape joke for the victims sake then they should also be as passionate to jokes about guns. I could make a joke to a friend like, "calm down, don't shoot me" in a sarcastic tone. Clearly a joke but you don't see people stampeding to have my head on a stake because I failed to consider the victims involved in shootings. The people who can laugh at these jokes are not deranged, they can have an understanding of what is a joke and what should be taken seriously. In my personal opinions I'd rather be raped than shot, I'm pretty sure I'd survive the rape. Both situations would physically and emotionally scar me no doubt, and neither are to be taken likely in a serious case. I'm trying to point out that if the passion towards stopping these jokes from being made were for the victim's sake then everyone victim should be protected and advocated for. But they are not, they are a select group of victims, what makes this group special? Is it because they are a majority of women? Why? Not every joke is nice and not every joke is appropriate but it does not make a bystander an honorary rapist.
The Pay Gap in America You will find arguments stating that women are inherently paid less than men in the American workforce. If you take an hour researching on the website of The Department of Labor and Statistics you will find that the gross capital earned by women workers is around .76 to every dollar for the gross capital earned by men. Does that state a pay gap? Yes. Does that mean women are paid less? Yes. Does that mean that women are paid less because they are women? No. How does this occur?
In not going to restate what these videos can say better.
Probably not the best thing I should have spent my time on but I've been looking up feminist posts on tumblr and youtube. A lot of them are laughable and radical and do not make good arguments regarding the issue. You usually only find posts or remarks against straight white men. It's not even an argument, it comes off as some brainwashed complaint towards men. But then there are the posts that claim they don't understand why people don't like feminism. They point out atrocities towards women and can make great arguments for why we should help WOMEN, and that's great, I'm all for it, but somehow fail to see the countless other posts on tumblr shaming men for being simply a man.
Being a woman does not make you innocent in any way. Woman can kill, can rape, can murder, can steal, can be pedophiles, can lie, and be privileged. Likewise Men can too.
This is a scratch on the surface from what we can talk about. Personally I don't like the label and the extreme people associated with it and therefore I will never call myself a feminist.
