Josh Thomas talks about male suicide

I wonder how feminists will react to this

Probably ignore it then go back to making male tears mugs and gifs 

Actually this is a very common idea among feminists

It’s something feminists have been talking about for years it’s called toxic masculinity and it’s one of the common threads among the topic of ‘Patriarchy hurts men too’. If fact the first time I read about toxic masculinity was on a feminist blog.

If you actually read things feminists talk about instead of straw manning them you might know this but OH WELL

Something with neurobiological origins is caused by the patriarchy. OK lol

"Patriarchy hurts men tooooooo!" says tumblr user spiderkiss, coming to the stunning logical conclusion that even when men are facing issues and hardships in society, many of which are a direct cause of feminist influence in law and society, it’s still the men’s fault. 

Feminism: It’s always the men’s fault! 

The concept of “toxic masculinity” is just victim blaming.

You might’ve made bad choices in life but at least you’re not a women’s studies major.

This really brightened up my day, thank you.

I think this may be one of my favorite things to come out of this whole GamerGate shitstorm. 

Brianna Wu attempts to shit on some conference or something with the usual social justice bullshit but rather than posting to the conference she posts to some produce importer. 

The guy must have done his research because he later came out in support of GamerGate and went on to suggest a game idea with half the profits going to a good cause. Some peeps on /gg/ are planning on settings things up to get it happening. 

Then he suggested to fight all the hate against gamers by using a silly hashtag and putting fruit on your game device (console, PC, handheld, etc). 

The guy’s just….real fucking nice in general. This entire thing has been so goddamn peaceful which is great considering the bullshit Brianna Wu was doing before this.

Bayonetta’s appearance was designed by a woman.
http://xbox360.gamespy.com/xbox-360/bayonetta/1013849p1.html
GameSpy: Sexuality is a prominent design element behind the Bayonetta character, from her sexy strut to her disappearing clothing, and so on. How do you feel about designing such a provocative character?
Mari Shimazaki: I’m very happy with her, I had a lot of fun in the process of designing such a sexy character. I had lots of discussions with Kamiya-san regarding what he feels is sexy from a guy’s point of view, and what he’d want from the character. [laughs]
GameSpy: Interesting you bring that up, as it’s been said that the Bayonetta character, from the glasses to her other attributes, those are defined by what Kamiya-san likes, what he finds attractive. If the shoe were on the other foot, and you were making a character based on what you find attractive, what would that character be like?
Mari Shimazaki: Actually, Bayonetta would be my preference as well. I find Bayonetta to be a very attractive character. Kamiya-san looks at her more like the female design appropriate for the role of lead character in the game. Kamiya-san’s personal preference is actually closer to Bayonetta’s rival character, Jeanne. One thing that Kamiya-san does love on a personal level is Bayonetta’s glasses.

AVFM is going on record with a very sincere offer. We want the person or persons who sent this threatening email, should they actually exist, to be arrested and punished accordingly.
One of our affiliates has already written us pledging $250.00 to a reward fund for this purpose. We are pledging an additional $1,000.00 for a start-up pot of $1,250.00.
We are betting our money is safe, though. Just as we are betting that there will not be any feminist frenzy to find the people behind this sca–, uh, terrible threat to free speech.
The current reward pledges stand at: $5,500.00

Come on, feminists!
Think of all the awesome things for feminism you could do with that money, like promise your fans a project made of 12 videos and never deliver it!

butmuhgains they upped us from my $50 to their $5,500. they are absolutely certain that no one will actually find the person

They are absolutely certain feminists aren’t going to try to locate the person behind this, because they know there’s a possibility that someone from “their side” is behind the threats.
Feminists aren’t going to bother looking. Other people will.

I wonder what will happen if the so called attacker was a feminist looking to stir shit up



This fills me with joy and glee. I don’t often give props to Elam or AVfM but this time I will. Clever. Very fucking clever

As a 19-year-old sophomore at Stanford, Elizabeth Holmes decided to transform diagnostic medicine so she dropped out of college and used her tuition money to start her own company, Theranos. Ten years later, Holmes, pictured here holding a micro-vial, is on the cutting edge of medical technology — her new blood testing method allows hundreds of tests to be run using only a few drops of blood. And, Holmes’ methods are cheaper, faster, more accurate, and less invasive than conventional methods which often require a separate vial of blood for every test.As Holmes told Wired.com earlier this year, “I started this company because I wanted to spend my life changing our health care system. When someone you love gets really sick, most of the time when you find out, it’s too late to be able to do something about it. It’s heartbreaking… We wanted to make actionable health information accessible to people everywhere at the time it matters most. That means two things: being able to detect conditions in time to do something about them and providing access to information that can empower people to improve their lives.”

Reasons you should adore Elizabeth Holmes:
She is featured as Forbes’ youngest self-made woman billionaire.
Her tests will revolutionize the public health world as we know it; Making diagnostic testing accessible and affordable for more people (and potentially saving Medicare and Medicaid ~$100 billion each over the next decade). (x)
She is a coauthor on 82 US and 189 foreign patent applications. (x)
Her fear of needles served as a motivator for launching Theranos. (x)

Fantastic! <3
