If feminism were about equality and supported men's issues also, why can't male supporters of feminism be called feminists instead of allies if they believe in feminism? Whenever I ask a feminist this question they say it's because "men shouldn't speak over women" and "it takes the attention away from women" and "feminism is about women, not men". Yet they claim they support men. I don't want to belong to a movement that demonizes me and doesn't allow me to speak about any issues including mine.

Yes

Types of dudes that I don’t understand:

a-a-w-s:

1. Dudes that don’t like chubby girls.

2. Dudes that don’t like tattooed girls.

3. Dudes that don’t lick vaginas.

1. Preference. I don’t like chubby guys.

2. Again, preference. I don’t like beards.
3. Sexual preference. I wouldn’t lick a vagina either.

Not that hard to understand.

That’s it.  He’s got no need for me anymore.  He’s got sex whenever he wants, he’s got drugs, he’s got friends, he’s got his own apartment, he’s got the single life…

Why the hell would he have any need for me?

i don’t know why this just made me break down lol wtf

This so much. I hate couples who can’t seperate. And females who are perma attatched to their partners. My partner and I are very rarely together on weekends so I am always flying solo.my closest girl friends are in relationships, and that sucks!

I KNOW.

See, Nick would ALWAYS go out without me.  And basically every time I went with my friends, he wouldn’t want to come.  I was ALWAYS flying solo as you said.  This girl sees her boyfriend every day and can’t be apart from him for one night to hang out with a friend who is actually going through something really serious.  I see Nick only on weekends, and sometimes I don’t even see him if he’s busy hanging out with his friends.  I just don’t understand some people.

Aaaaaand I’m not going out. See I don’t understand why these people can’t be a little more considerate. Fuck sake.

THIS

I actually had to hold back tears man, woah idk why it hit me the way it dis

I disagree with this for a number of reasons.

1.  So what if they like maths and don’t major in engineering?  Engineering isn’t the only field that requires maths.  What about accounting, applied statistics, psychology, business? 

2. Who’s my handsome little boy?

3. I don’t understand the point of that one, why would any parent WANT their children’s clothes to get muddy?  

4. That’s just good parenting.  She is picking up something she (or anyone) shouldn’t be touching.  

5.  This is strange, however I don’t think that has anything to do with gender. Some parents just don’t like their children taking over their bedrooms with large projects.  This has nothing to do with gender.  

6.  I admit that is a little bit weird also, however her brother does look older.  She looks fairly young, of course that isn’t to say she isn’t capable.

7. & 8.  She’s using it as a mirror.  So what?  How do you know she isn’t already in advanced science classes, what, is it because she takes pride in her appearance?  Are you trying to say smart girls can’t be beautiful or enjoy traditionally feminine products?  Maybe her lips are just really dry and she doesn’t want to get it all over her face.

I really don’t understand how this whole thing about women being ‘the weaker sex’ started up. I mean honestly, women have BABIES and that should be enough.

Men and women have two different survival strategies. Evolution is all about reproductive fitness, or who can have the most children that survive to have children themselves. Women can only bear a few children in their lifetimes, while men can impregnate pretty much as many women as they want. As a result of this, men have evolved to compete against other men for who get the rights to the most women.

 

These roots in reproductive strategy can be seen clearly by looking at the animal kingdom. Among warm-blooded animals, the parent who raises the children tends to be physically smaller and less naturally muscular, while the parent who has to compete for this limited supply of mates is bigger and stronger. There’s one interesting bird species in which this is reversed; females lay eggs all the time and leave them for the fathers to take care of. As a result, in this species females are the bigger and more aggressive sex.

 

Women ARE stronger than men in some important ways. Women have higher pain tolerance and more fat stores, which means we survive famine better. Women’s brains are also better at multitasking, so as to keep track of multiple children. Muscular strength and speed, though, aren’t essential for childbearing and may actually be a waste of a woman’s energy. Lacking muscle leaves more energy and protein from the diet available to go into making babies and running around after them once they learn to walk.

 

Men are stronger than women in terms of muscle and athletic ability because these traits are important to competing for wives. Strong, fast men make good hunters and good providers of food, so women would favor strong men for mates by choice. Strong, fast men are also better at fighting other men, so as to defend their mates from other men who might want to steal their wives or harm their children to reduce competition. These are the kinds of behaviors we see in many primate species, like gorillas in which only the biggest, strongest man gets rights to mate with all of the females.

 

We have to be careful in making these statements about men being stronger or women being better multitaskers, though, because these are things that the genders are better at -on average-. So while all men as a group are naturally stronger than all women as a group, for example, there are some individual women who are stronger than some individual men. Likewise, even though women’s brains are naturally more nurturing and less aggressive than men’s brains, there are some men who are naturally more nurturing than some women. In the past these averages have been applied to individuals—assuming no woman can be stronger than a man, or that no man can be as nurturing as a woman. Using averages to make assumptions about individuals is not only annoying, but it’s a grievous misunderstanding of statistics and biology.

Men and women differ in countless ways, many of which they aren’t even conscious of. Here are just a few of those differences:

A woman has greater constitutional vitality, perhaps because of her unique chromosomal pattern. Normally, she outlives a man by three or four years in the U.S. Females simply have a stronger hold on life than males, even in the uterus.

Men have a higher incidence of death from almost every disease except three: benign tumors, disorders related to female reproduction, and breast cancer.

Men have a higher rate of basal metabolism than women.

The sexes differ in skeletal structure, women having a shorter head, broader face, less protruding chin, shorter legs, and longer trunk. The first finger of a woman’s hand is usually longer than the third; with men the reverse is true. Boys’ teeth last longer than do those of girls.

Women have a larger stomach, kidneys, liver, and appendix, and smaller lungs than men.

Women have three very important physiological functions totally absent in men—menstruation, pregnancy, and lactation. Each of these mechanisms influences behavior and feelings significantly. Female hormonal patterns are more complex and varied. The glands work differently in the two sexes. For example, a woman’s thyroid is larger and more active; it enlarges during menstruation and pregnancy, which makes her more prone to goiter, provides resistance to cold, and is associated with the smooth skin, relatively hairless body, and the thin layer of subcutaneous fat that are important elements in the concept of personal beauty. Women are also more responsive emotionally, laughing and crying more readily.

Women’s blood contains more water (20 percent fewer red cells). Since red cells supply oxygen to the body, she tires more easily and is more prone to faint. Her constitutional viability is therefore strictly a long-range matter. When the working day in British factories, under wartime conditions, was increased from ten to twelve hours, accidents among women increased 150 percent; the rate of accidents among men did not increase significantly.

Men are 50 percent stronger than women in brute strength.

Women’s hearts beat more rapidly than those of men (80 versus 72 beats per minute). Their blood pressure (ten points lower than men) varies more from minute to minute, but they have much less tendency to high blood pressure—at least until after menopause.

Female lung capacity is about 30 percent less than in males.

Women can withstand high temperatures better than men because their metabolism slows down less.

Men and women differ in every cell of their bodies because they carry a differing chromosomal pattern. The implications of those genetic components range from obvious to extremely subtle. For example, when researchers visited high school and college campuses to study behavior of the sexes, they observed that males and females even transported their books in different ways. The young men tended to carry them at their sides with their arms looped over the top. Women and girls, by contrast, usually cradled their books at their breasts, in much the same way they would a baby.

Reblogging for the last comment. Very educational.

6.17pm.  No response from her yet.  Does it really depend on your boyfriend? I thought you said you were independent, why does it matter what your boyfriend wants to do.  If he doesn’t want to come along, you and I can go on our own.  I don’t get it.  I’m always having to go everywhere without my partner…
