Brendan's Blog ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Brendan. 19/M/USA. Capricorn.

I still have no idea why I have this Tumblr. If not being in one of the major Tumblr fandoms makes me a hipster, so be it.

Apparently I'm a Mage of Void. Check my FAQ before you ask me something in my Ask Box please, otherwise hit me up; I don't bite [usually ;)].

You don’t get PTSD from a post or image on the internet.

If you think otherwise, please disconnect from the internet and never reconnect.

Thank you. :)

It’s time to shutdown 4chan.org

Join us on July 4th to celebrate our freedom and independence from racists by shutting down 4chan.

We will go to their site and as a form of protest we will overwhelm them with corrections to their awful lies and let them really know what the world thinks of them.

TW: I don’t think it’s really safe to go alone. The misogyny, transphobia, homophobia, anti-semitism, rape jokes and blatant racism will often be too much for any sane person.

Please spread the message and don’t be afraid to get involved!

Comics, stories, poetry, essays or pictures are all welcome! Every little helps!

See you on July 4th

#ShutDown4chan

JUST BECAUSE I’M WEARING THESE PANTS DOESN’T MEAN YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO LOOK. I’M WEARING THIS FOR MEEEEEEEEEE.

breasts aren’t the same thing as your nasty fucking nuts bro. breasts aren’t sexual and they’re a whole hell of a lot different from your nasty fucking cheese-encrusted balls.

Dream on chickie-babe. Come back and tell me that when you’re 65 ;-)

In the meantime, take a look at this:

Seriously though.

Seriously.

I’m 20 and a virgin in college.

And I’m not pissed at men and going off and shooting men for revenge because a lot of men don’t pay attention to me.

Good. You’re a normal…

Am I an MRA? Of course not. I have zero interest in associating myself with those whining losers. They are beneath me.

Elliot Rodger

Well, I guess that settles it.

(via aboutwhitewomen)

"Four years ago, I was raped.

I didn’t ask for it. I didn’t want it. I didn’t deserve it.

I also, however, didn’t blame society. I blamed the man who raped me.

The “patriarchy” did not assault me. “Rape culture” did not slip sleeping pills into my drink.

One man did.

And he did it not because he was taught to. Not because society told him he should.
He raped me because he is a bad person, and we should not be holding everyone accountable for the actions of bad people.

Don’t let rapists go free of responsibility by saying their
choices are made for them by society. Bad people do bad things.
Don’t let them trick you into thinking that we are all to blame.

Would love to see how the feminists respond..

heathergraves:

Kat posted a link onto Facebook just a little while ago that was demonstrating the differences between how the public reacts to a woman getting abused, and then a man. And it got me thinking..

For some time now, society has been working towards making gender equality a thing. How have they been…

Asker Anonymous Asks:
You said you were a former feminist so does that mean you don't believe in equal rights?

I think you’re mistaken, hon.

I DON’T want anything to do with the term of “feminist” anymore, because unlike any of the people currently abusing that term on this website, I actually DO believe in equal rights.

You cant keep arguing that ALL women find ALL men to be misogynists, thats completely hypocritical. May I remind you as well as many other people out there that theres a solid difference between feminism and misandry. Yes Elliot killed both men and women. I dont understand why there needs to be a debate over which one was worse. The death of both genders is equally terrible. And frankly I dont care if hes "dead as a doornail" now. Doesn't stop the fact that 1 in 6 women are sexually assaulted

tenaflyviper:

Except THAT “STATISTIC” IS A LIE, YOU BLITHERING FUCKING IDIOT.

In fact, I guarantee you that everything you THINK you know about “feminism” is a COMPLETE FUCKING LIE.

As a bonus, have a few other statistics about gender and violent crime, which show that MEN ARE THREE TIMES AS LIKELY TO BE VICTIMS OF VIOLENT CRIME AND HOMICIDE.

You’ll also find some useful statistics regarding your alleged “rape culture” in that last link as well, including the fact that RAPE HAS ACTUALLY DECREASED BY OVER 80% SINCE 1979, WHILE FALSE REPORTS OF RAPE ARE AT AN ALL TIME HIGH.

IF YOU’RE GOING TO TRY TO TALK TO A FORMER FEMINIST ABOUT FEMINISM, YOU BETTER ACTUALLY FUCKING KNOW WHAT THE FUCK YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT.

And lastly, don’t try to put words into other peoples’ mouths.  You either find exactly where I ever used the word “all”, or DON’T TRY TO IMPLY THAT I ACTUALLY USED IT.

fraudulentfeminist:

I want to post this to counteract out the sickening amount of posts that blame the patriarchy/male privilege/men for this tragic event. For those who use the suffering of others to promote their own agenda. To those who use this massacre to insist that our society pre-conditions men to believe that they have the right to sex:

Assuming that our society has a system that teaches men from birth that they have the right to have sex with women is assuming that all men have been conditioned to think this way, and therefore currently DO think this way. The only people who actually think they have the right to sex… are rapists, not simply the entire male gender. Elliot was a psychopath, and to parallel his motives with innocent men who are also saddened by the massacre is very misguided. 


I have a brother, father, uncle, boyfriend, more male friends than female, and to see so many women on my dash this morning making unfounded statements about men, absolutely sickens me. Everyday men do not display the same sentiments that Elliot expressed. 

Here are two quotes from Elliot Rodger’s manifesto:
"I will torture some of the good looking people before I kill them, assuming that the good looking ones had the best sex lives. All of that pleasure they had in life, I will punish by bringing them pain and suffering."
and
"On the morning before, I will drive down to my father’s house to kill my little brother, denying him of the chance to grow up to surpass me, along with my stepmother … as she will be in the way. "   

Four men and two women are in an early grave because a psychotic man had a jealous rampage fuelled by sexual frustration. I don’t understand the amount of mental gymnastics people have to jump through to come to the conclusion that his actions weren’t spurred by any mental illness from those quotes alone. Just because one murderer/potential rapist/psycho made some inherently sexist comments about women to justify his actions, does that give people the right to presume that all men think like this? 

Can we stop stereotyping and generalizing the entire male gender over the actions of one mentally-unstable human? Can we just get back to supporting the victims families.

Elliot Rodgers was NOT inspired by MRAs. He was batshit crazy, and yes it is quite obvious he had some issue with women - misogyny, if you will.

His views seem much more in-line with TRP followers than anything. If you think all men are the problem, you should probably check yourself from the neck up. Saying all men are the problem is like saying all Germans are Nazis. Can you really believe a statement like that?

ughsocialjustice:

It really pisses me off that Tumblr feminists are using Elliot Rodger as a way of justifying their “this is why we need feminism” ideology, completely disregarding the fact that four out of his seven victims were men

The problem I have with this isn’t that they are making this just about women,…

It’s like any other political debate. Twisting what is a tragedy into something that fits your agenda.
