strange machine
It was designed to view a world unseen
(he’s gonna catch em all cuz he’s danny phantom )
When it didnt quite work his
folks they just quit then Danny took a look inside of it
there was a great big flash
every thing just changed
his molecules got all rearranged
(phantom phantom)

many-polynomials asked: Why is the equality if all genders called feminism? Sorry if I sound like a total fucking idiot. You know what at that why is it fine for an African individual to throw the infamous n word?

hey! So the “equality of all genders” thing is confusing because when feminists say (and mean) ‘feminism is about equality,’ people are quick to yell about how “egalitarianism is better” and “you’re being sexist against men by not including them in your goals” and “feminism is just about hating men, it’s not about equality.”

But the thing is, men are severely advantaged. People (men) (MRAs and other anti-feminists) will often throw out points such as

  • the draft
  • custody arrangements
  • murder and suicide rates

in an attempt to prove that men are not only not in an elevated position, but that women are actually better off. I’ve talked about those points in other posts before, and I don’t want to go into them here, but even if they weren’t all kind of off they still only deal with Americans, and very often middle class ones. That isn’t to say that men don’t face issues! Nobody is saying that, but when I or any other feminist tries to say that women are definitely at a disadvantage there is a rebuttal of “men have problems too!” about 50% of the time. 

But we aren’t here to talk about advantages - we can kind of take a look at the balance of power in legislation and things like that and see that men do hold a large share of power and also at the gender wage gap - which is real when adjusted for all factors, even though the 77¢ figure isnt (it’s more like 86-94 cents, but that’s a gap!) (it’s also exacerbated in cases of non-white employees) - men do hold power. 

Feminism is about equality, but it’s not about the kind of equality that adds to both sides equally. Those who are not men are at a disadvantage, and feminism seeks to level that playing field. Intersectional and comprehensive feminisms will also advocate across race, sexuality, class, etc. lines. Ideally, we don’t want just middle-class white feminism - even though that has its perks too (don’t hate on certain branches of feminism if you are a feminist because that ain’t cool). 

So, in short, what feminism seeks to do is add weight to the other side of the male-dominated balance of power. That’s why feminism as a movement is focused on women and other non-male genders, and much much less on men’s perspectives. In case people want to argue that that’s just perpetuating hate: here’s a study that revealed feminists had a much lower level of hostility towards men than non-feminists among a sample of college age women. 

tl;dr: It’s only called ‘feminism’ because it began as a movement solely for women, though recently it has expanded to include nonbinary causes as well. Feminism is a movement to help those who are not men try to achieve at the same levels as men. It’s that simple. When feminists say “equality,” we mean that we want to attain the same levels of achievement that men have historically held a near monopoly on. From my perspective, “fighting for equality” does not mean helping men get to those levels because they’re uh already at them. 

re: your second question - I can’t speak for Africans (nobody really can because that’s a damn big group to cover) and I can’t speak for African-Americans, because I’m not part of either of those groups so it’s kind of not my place.

antifeminists are so funny they go around expecting to be taken seriously even though they use the word “femsplaining” as if it’s a real and non-ludicrous term

the reason this generation is failing is because we’re not motivated enough to make money. all the people on the dollar bills are dead. they’re not relevant and teens just can’t connect. we need money with memes and beyonce on it
