Tumblr spotlight: Feminism and donuts
Tumblr is a blogging platform meant to share artwork. At some point, it became a popular platform for people in 15-25 age bracket who saw themselves as fighting for social justice. While this is an admirable cause, the intellectual content generated has been… odd.
Warning: Do not, at any point, try to engage in a argument, even mentally, with this person. Hatred is toxic. Laughter are cleansing. This selection is for entertainment purposes only.
Without further ado, I present a selection of thoughts from user Feminism and Donuts.
She doesn’t like compliments:
When a man tells me “you’re beautiful” all I hear is “Your only purpose in life is to decorate my world.” (Link)
“It’s a compliment” is something men say when they’ve been found verbally assaulting you. Don’t buy into it ladies. (Link)
Or criminals rights for those accused of rape:
Why do rapists get a “fair trial” when victims of rape didn’t have their attack decided by a group after a long fair trial[?](Link)
Male privilege is people saying “accused rapist” until he is “proven” guilty. Male privilege is having a woman’s word subject to the judgment of others. (Link)
Indeed, she has some odd ideas about male privilege:
Male privilege is being able to get sex from any woman, any time with little to no difficulty or judgment. (Link)
And interior decoration:
It’s not that I hate white cis men, it’s just that I want to use them as rugs. And they say chivalry is gone. (Link)
I’m not sure what to make of this:
No means No. Yes does not necessarily mean yes. (Link)
She, and her followers, need feminism:
Anonymous follower. Text reads “I need feminism because the last time I submitted an essay I got a D despite being smarter than the other students.” (Link)
But she knows how to have fun:
lol I am going to show up to class tomorrow in a see-through shirt with nipple pasties, a G-string and a pair of see-through pants made out of a shower curtain and a nerf gun. and anyone who stares at me because the outfit “provoked” them is going to be squirted in the face with nerf water. (Link)
Disclaimer: Do not generalize from this person to anyone else. No individual who shares a label (e.g. “feminist”) with this person deserves to be tarnished by association with him/her. Every movement has its nutjobs.
