Lucy (2014)

An action film.

With a female lead.

Played by Scarlett Johanssen

With no love interest.

With superpowers.

And Morgan Freeman.

I had no idea how much I wanted this until this moment.

Other “attractive” female leads with no love interest appear in:

  • Resident Evil
  • Alien
  • Hallowe’en
  • The Thing (remake with Mary Elizabeth Winstead)
  • Kill Bill

There’s probably more. I’m not accustomed to categorising movies along these lines (nor should anyone). The list above took about five-ten minutes to compile.

But this is essentially Limitless, plus a girl, minus any philosophical debate, and Morgan Freeman instead of Robert DeNiro. And why not? It looks great.

Also, the guy from OldBoy.

A Sense Of Perspective

"those aren’t REAL feminists."—-

Is practically the same thing as the disgruntled

—-“not all men are like that.”

Yes.

Except men don’t choose to be men. They simply are men. So lumping all men together is completely unfair. We shouldn’t assume all men have the bad traits of a few men, much like we shouldn’t assume all women have the bad traits of a few women. Because they can’t stop being men/women. They can’t disassociate themselves from that group.

Feminists choose to be feminists. They take on that label of their own free will. They can drop it at any time. So while we shouldn’t assume all feminists are like that (because they’re not) it is perfectly reasonable to say that all feminists must take on the burden of (and hopefully educate) the shit side of their movement. By choosing that label they choose to associate with the shitty feminists. All choices come with consequences and, sadly for the good feminists, being lumped in with radfems/TERFs is the consequence of calling yourself a feminist.

Feminists choose to be feminists.

When dudes are like, “Oh, I believe in equal pay because I have a daughter,” like they could not imagine that women were worth equal pay before they had one they cared about. Jesus. Fucking. Christ.

Ah, the narcissistic father type. 

Well, it’s a natural human reaction to try to relate to new information in any way you can. A man cannot relate to being a woman (and look out for the tidal wave of abuse from people like you if they try!), so they take the next best thing - relating women-stuff to women that they know and care about.

It’s called compassion, and it works both ways.

If Feminists Like Women, Why Are They Constantly Trying To Change Us?

"

What men mean when they talk about their “crazy” ex-girlfriend is often that she was someone who cried a lot, or texted too often, or had an eating disorder, or wanted too much/too little sex, or generally felt anything beyond the realm of emotionally undemanding agreement. That does not make these women crazy. That makes those women human beings, who have flaws, and emotional weak spots. However, deciding that any behavior that he does not like must be insane– well, that does make a man a jerk.

And when men do this on a regular basis, remember that, if you are a woman, you are not the exception. You are not so cool and fabulous and levelheaded that they will totally get where you are coming from when you show emotions other than “pleasant agreement.”

When men say “most women are crazy, but not you, you’re so cool” the subtext is not, “I love you, be the mother to my children.” The subtext is “do not step out of line, here.” If you get close enough to the men who say things like this, eventually, you will do something that they do not find pleasant. They will decide you are crazy, because this is something they have already decided about women in general.

Lady, You Really Aren’t “Crazy”

Really excellent. Written with the empathy we all should try to have for our fellow human beings.

How To Expose Feminist Bullshit

  1. Replace all the female words above with male words: “her” becomes “him”, “mother” becomes “father”, “women” becomes “men” etc.
  2. Replace all instances of the word “crazy” with “creepy”.
  3. Read it again with your new edits.
  4. Learn as you enjoy.


I realise I’m asking you to do most of the work for me, but sometimes the lectures are interactive.

Those people aren’t the left-wing equivalent of anything! But they are, as you imply, deeply religious. Modern “mansplaining” “rape culture” feminism is absolutely a religion. Their concerns are unrelated to the actual real-life experiences of men and women in our society.

More Evidence

Reblogged from thepoisoneddart

This relates to a photoset I posted last month about women rejecting feminism.

thepoisoneddart:

THIS IS A RIDICULOUS MISREPRESENTATION OF FEMINISM. YOU OBVIOUSLY HAVE ACCESS TO THE INTERNET, LOOK UP THE FUCKING WORD YOU ABSOLUTE MORONS.

Another example of women’s voices being silenced, of a rather violent dismissal of any women who don’t toe the feminist party line.

Remember, again: If you’re a feminist and you find that you’re spending a lot of your time shouting down women, you might want to take a look at that.

As I said at the time, maybe it’s about time we started listening to all women instead of just the noisy ones.

Notice how it says “having sex” and not “raping”. Source»

DOWN WITH THE PATRIARCHYYYY

It seems like they’re painting her as a predator. I think she’s being slandered and it’s not fair. This is patriarchy and it reeks. 

Hey look the [unpleasant name deleted -PS] who lied about a little girl being raped is standing up for a pedophile. 

1. I didn’t lie about a little girl getting raped. I’m a victim just like everyone who reblogged the post.

2. Be careful with your words. This woman is not a pedophile. She made an honest mistake and is now a victim herself.

1. She had sex with an eight-year-old boy 50 times. I’m not sure if that qualifies as an “honest mistake”.

2. How would you be talking about this if she was a man? Be honest with yourself when you answer.

White feminism

Well done! You managed to find the one article on the internet which didn’t cast Miley Cyrus as a trashy slut.

There are also lots of articles about Nicki Minaj as a feminist icon, Nicki Minaj as an avatar of black feminism and how Nicki Minaj lyrics destroy the male gaze.

So, you’re full of shit. But that’s OK. We’re all full of shit sometimes. Take this as a learning moment. Ready? Here we go:

If you start some argument with a conclusion and work backwards to find evidence for it, it’s called “cherry picking”.

If you only take account of the things that back up your argument, even though the world is full of things that kill it stone dead, it’s called “confirmation bias”.

No One Knows What “Feminist” Means

postsatire:

There are lots of women who just don’t think of the men in their lives as potential attackers, and they refuse to think of themselves as victims. They just get on with their lives like everyone else.

Where are their voices?

Well, that’s the point, isn’t it?

Maybe it’s about time we started listening to all women instead of just the noisy ones.

YOU FUCKING BRAINLESS TWATS, THAT’S NOT AT ALL WHAT FEMINISM IS. OH MY GOD. FEMINISM IS NOT HATING AND BLAMING MEN FOR ALL THE PROBLEMS IN THE WORLD. FEMINISM IS NOT ROOTING FOR MATRIARCHY. FEMINISM IS NOT “TREAT ME LIKE AN ABSOLUTE QUEEN AND GIVE ME EVERYTHING I WANT OR I’LL CRY.” DO SOME GOD DAMN RESEARCH AND FIGURE OUT WHAT FEMINISM REALLY IS. IT’S EQUALITY. AND FUCK YOUR GOD DAMN GENERALIZATIONS, TOO.
