I have a really hard time understanding “antifeminists” especially when they are women because god forbid we get some fucking equality and respect? I dont understand.

wanna explain how women are not equal?

Yeah well first there’s the pay gap, still present, next there’s rape and victim blaming and also if a girl or woman wears clothing like shorts they get cat called which is harassment. I’m not saying it’s all women but a lot do, and if you’ve never even considered these, you are in fact extremely ignorant.

The wage gap is not due to sexism friend

As you can see, the jobs men take more often have a high risk of death and serious mental stress. The jobs that women take more often have a low risk of death and have instead minors risks such as body aches and disease. From the top five jobs by gender, you can see women tend to take safer jobs while men tend to take more dangerous jobs. The danger of those jobs must be taken into account and the people working in those dangerous jobs must be compensated.

The wage gap you hear about is an average of the entire nation. It does not represent a man and a woman in the same job field. It represents every single man and every single women in the USA. That is why it is called average. As you can see, women tend to take lower paying jobs while men tend to take higher paying jobs.

Men are the overwhelming majority of rape victims

Other facts regarding men and rape:

Catcalling is not oppression. Harassment is not oppression. When men catcall they are expressing their freedom of speech. Its not hurting you, its not stopping you from anything, those words alone do not put you in danger. Harassment is not oppression since 1) its illegal to harass someone and its taken very seriously and 2) Men are harassed too. If it only happened to women and/or it was legal to do to you, then it would be oppression. But its not.

You’re calling me ignorant but you’re the idiot who thinks the wage gap is due to sexism and that rape is gender specific. Lmfao. Try harder.

literally if you think women have equal rights where do you live? Iceland? Go outside

…so you <em>didn’t</em> read any of what they just write, did you?

My mother does the same factory job as her male coworkers but gets paid less than they do because she has a vagina and not a penis. That’s unfair, and horseshit. :^)

Prove it. Post screencaps of all the hours worked and their checks and show footage of them doing the exact same things. I will also need to know how long each person has been working their and their level pf education and their station. Prove it. Because your mother’s story even if its true which I’m 100% sure its not is not evident of the entite country and my links prove that.

If it is true she can sue, I hope you know that. So Instead of whining go sue.

why aren’t these being reblogged more often?i rather see these than “keys in hand”

Fatality

Umm so since I’m stupid could someone kindly explain each step for me like step 3 am i head butting him in the face or the chest? 

I think it depends on the height of the person, but I suppose the head is a more effective target. I hope this helps :)

Step 1: Step back the moment he reaches for you.
Step 2: Duck!
Step 3: Head butt him in the chin. It’s very important that it is the chin and not the chest because it is much more uncomfortable and disorienting to have your teeth bang together especially if it cuts his tongue (which it will if it is in the way). More than likely height won’t matter. He will be leaning forward from the missed attempt at grabbing you.
Step 4: Knee him in the balls.
Step 5: When he doubles over, jab him on his back. I believe at the base of the neck just above the shoulder blades would be best. I’m not an expert, but this seems like the best place, imo.
Step 6: Don’t lose contact. Bring your other hand over and slam your hands against the sides of his heads as hard as possible. Right on the ears is the best place; it is extremely disorienting if done correctly. Then take his head and bring it down on your knee as you bring your knee up. It’s very important that you avoid the nose because if you knee his nose it will definitely break and more than likely the bones will stab his brain killing him, so aim for his mouth instead.
Step 7: Keep your knee up and bring your foot out to kick him over. Personally, I don’t like the image because it looks like she kicked him with her toes. You do not want to do that. Instead kick him with the ball or heel of your foot and put power behind it with a push.
Step 8: He is on the ground. You could probably stop here and he would get the picture, but if you really want to…Your leg is still in the air from the kick. With all your force slam the edge of your your heel on his side. It will be more effective if you lower your body first by bending at the knee of the leg your weight is on. Done right, you can break a rib or two.

reblogging again for that^

Reblogging for the steps in the image and the explanation in the comments. I don’t so much like the explanation on the image proper, but I appreciate the thought behind it (here, have a self-defense thing, it could save you) and so I’m passing it on.

My sister posted this on her FB, and my parents said it was offensive. SO FUCK THAT, I’M REBLOGGING THIS.


I&#8217;m reblogging this because it could save both a girl and a GUYS life. Yes it is offensive because both men and women can attack and both can be victims
