Vox has a depressing list outlining the reality of violence that women face in the United States every day:

1. Most women experience physical abuse in their lifetime

Even more men do.

2. Nearly one-quarter of women experience a physical or sexual assault by an intimate partner

And even more men in this category too.

3. Seven in ten assaults against women are perpetrated by an intimate partner

The percentage of assaults against men that is from an intimate partner is actually very low. Because they are far more likely than women to be attacked by strangers and other acquaintances. Their overall incidence of violence is much higher than women’s.

4. One in five women are raped in their lifetime

That number is an outright lie.

5. One in thirteen murder victims are killed by their husband or boyfriend

Again, men are much, much more likely to be murdered than women are, including much more likely to be killed by a stranger or other acquaintance.

6. One in ten women has a head or spinal cord injury as a result of physical assault

Your numbers are fabricated. That finding was from all victims, not just women. 

7. But most assault victims don’t receive medical care

Again, a figure that is higher for men than women.

8. Eighteen percent of mass shooters have a domestic violence charge

Which is not the same as to say that eighteen percent of DV allegations will lead to a mass shooting. You’ve got biased numbers that are emotionally loaded to paint a picture of DV arrestees as murderers but the numbers don’t back it.

9. Rates of sexual assault are declining

Yes, to a small fraction of what they were.

Why are straight white men’s rights activists are so insistent that women don’t need feminism?

Because people like you spread lies like this to make a political agenda. 

Why are online reactionaries so upset with “social justice warriors” for pointing these issues out?

Because a google search and an hour of spare time shows that only one of those points you posted is not an outright lie or a deceptively-worded half-truth.

Is the above reality the one they expect women to be satisfied with?

No, and women should not. Because that is not our reality.

I suppose that’s why “the abuser’s lobby” is such an apt name for the men’s rights movement.

Most domestic abuse and child abuse is perpetrated by women in our society. Whose lobby was that now?

I get this joke.

Try one day without police.

Man I’d love for you to be right about that. But here’s the hitch: you’re more likely to be killed by a cop than a crook. And ‘the devil you know’ is not really any better than the possibility that crime will rise if cops were deprived of lethal authority.

In the city I live in, one of the five biggest in America, the cops do not investigate or pursue criminals. They dedicate all of their attention to traffic stops and trying to flip CI’s for drug offenses, because those are the crimes that net the department more funding. And any other crimes they investigate would cost the department money. 

Last year I was robbed at gunpoint. I had to fill out my own report online because they could not be arsed to even answer their phones. There has not been any followup call or investigation. Earlier this year someone on my property found a bloody machete laying on the grass in a plastic sheath that would preserve fingerprints and blood. Uniformed cops were dispatched to photograph the scene and bag the evidence, detectives did not even show up in person to look at anything. Everyone I know in this city has stories like this. And nobody, none of them, has any record of police doing anything at all to help anyone or pursue a criminal since the last century. 

I live in the Purge, honestly. Trying one day without police would be a good day for me.

As C.M. Kosemen explains throughout All Yesterdays, we really can’t ever know how much fat and other soft tissues contributed to the overall shape of dinosaurs since that’s the first thing to rot and shrivel tight against their bones and like even a sperm whale has a little skinny skeleton.

my life got about a thousand times better once i stopped censoring myself

and by censoring i don’t mean i suddenly embraced indiscriminate swearing; i mean i stopped trying to sugarcoat my past or my feelings; i stopped lying by omission; i stopped having guilty pleasures; i began unabashedly enjoying whatever i liked; i became very honest; i cut out of my life poisonous people and negative ideals, and i am so, so much happier for it

Oh look at that, 413

Literally every possible number is in Pi. Somewhere in there is a line of numbers that, when turned into an image, shows you having sex with Nicholas Cage on the moon with Margaret Thatcher looking on and shedding a single sultry tear. Pi is amazing.
