Just gonna leave this here…
dont forget in the states :
100% of men can be drafted
0% of women can be drafted.
just gonna leave these here for you guys who are getting pissy over my ‘white privilege’ post
Now, I’m not all anti-social justice, but you certainly can’t ignore these facts.
But let’s take a guess as to why women generally are prohibited from serving on the front lines in warzones, and why they are discouraged from working in the industrial sector? Patriarchal expectations of appropriate roles for men and women based on gender.
Who commits the majority of homicides? Men.
Why are men more likely to commit suicide instead of seeking help for their problems? It’s those pesky patriarchal gender roles again, equating emotions with femininity and therefore weakness, which discourages men from talking about their problems.
As for the custody thing, the majority of custody decisions are agreements made between both parents, which again, are probably overdetermined by patriarchal assumptions about gender that paint women as being more nurturing and therefore better parents than men.
So, although the person who made this clearly wanted to argue that male privilege doesn’t exist, what they actually did was make a pretty good graphic illustrating the ways in which patriarchal expectations and structures within a society hurt men as well as women, which, since feminism is actually aimed at dismantling the patriarchy is why men also need feminism.
Reblogging for that comment
» AMERICAN PSYCHO // HANNIBAL (NBC) AU
“… one of those pitiful things, sometimes born in hospitals. They let it die, but he doesn’t die. His conscious, pity, and hopes disappeared a long time ago, if they ever did exist. He is a sadist. His pain is constant and sharp and he does not hope for a better world for anyone. An intelligent psychopath, yet he is blameless. He looks normal and nobody can tell what he is; and though he can hide his cold gaze and you can shake his hand and feel flesh gripping yours… he simply is not there.”

I can’t help but feel they are similar monsters. That you could put the commentary from American Psycho over Hannibal clips and it fit.
