they’re just trying to get a meal
and if they seriously don’t mind, then it’s still strange to me that…

This is why you cant trust women, even when theyre mouth is closed theyre still lying to you

you do realize that this is really hurtful right?
i did not do this to show how i am ‘lying’ to men or anyone, it’s not about how you, as a man, should feel about it - it’s about myself. 
to me your statement sounds as if the left side of this picture is something awful or horrible. and no, it’s not. it is my face - with and without makeup. and whether i chose to wear it or not is MY AND JUST MY decision. and when i do, i do it for myself - so that i feel good about myself - not for you.

Women aren’t born with makeup on, guy. Just like penises don’t circumcise themselves, and air conditioning isn’t ‘natural’. Makeup is no different than brushing your hair, or bubblegum. It’s elective. Although I have a sneaking suspicion that you’re not very loved by the ladies.

Male logic:
Treat makeup-less women like shit for looking “less attractive”
Pressure women to wear makeup in order to receive basic respect
Treat women like malicious liars for wearing the makeup they were told they HAD to wear

not all males think that way so perhaps you should change “male logic” to something like “ignorant male logic” or “misogynist male logic” 

um nope, it’s many males’ logic and if you’re offended by that than you need to re-evaluate yourself. You’re being an ignorant male right now. If you’re not misogynstic and don’t think like that asshole above, then don’t fucking worry about who she’s referring to, but don’t ever act like you don’t benefit from sexism or you’ve never done/said anything sexist. You should be more offended by how that guy responded and not attacking a girl because she referred to a guy as what he is..a male.

I really don’t think you know what you’re saying. You’re taking the time out of your night to say shit like that to me for the second time on this site. Clearly that guy is a fuckin’ idiot for saying that, that’s why i didn’t feel the need to mention it for the millionth time. And no, i’m not offended by her generalizing men like that because i’m not like that dude. yes i have benefited from sexism and yes i have said sexist things in the past, i’m human and i make mistakes. however the important thing is that i’m old and mature enough now to know that we are all equal as human beings regardless of sex, race, religion, etc. also, how in any way shape or form did i attack her at all? I didn’t us any sort of aggressive words or say hurtful things. in fact, you’re the one attacking me right now for literally nothing. You jump to the most obscene conclusions for no reason and it’s pretty ridiculous. and no she didn’t “refer to a guy as what he is..a male” she referred to an entire sex to be represented by this asshole. I’m sure a lot of women would be pissed off if i thought all of them were as spiteful and full of bitterness as you, but i don’t. on the contrary, i think women on the by and large are absolutely wonderful human beings and i’m thankful for each and every woman that i have in my life because without them i wouldn’t be where i was today. so please, next time you want to go out of your way to try and make me seem like something i’m not you should go do something more productive like try to teach men who are actually like this dude the right way to think about humans. 

You are literally part of the problem. Why not be more angry at the sexist guys that make y’all look bad? Instead of women angry at misogyny? Trans people have every right to be angry with cis people for how they are treated by society. You don’t see me going “NOT ALL CIS ARE LIKE THAT” when they are ranting and sharing their stories. Or making up shit like “cisphobia”. I know I’m not like that, and if I am than maybe it’s something I can change to be better ally. And don’t think for one second reversing the situation and making it about you is the same effect. Cause many men already do that shit now and it’s nothing new. Consider this and grow from it. You jumping to the defense of “not all men are like that” you’re being one of those men. Not everything’s about you.

I had another really long paragraph talking about how you need to stop lashing out at strangers online about things they didn’t say and that I’m either an extreme sexist or you are delusional but instead I’ll just say I hope that you have a great night and I’m sorry if the things you think I said offended you in any way. 

Let’s just remember that feminism isn’t about reviving women from all the ways the patriarchy has pushed them down to get them on equal ground with men- it’s about the battle for both genders to be revived from this patriarchal damage, and eventually be on equal ground on all issues. Both genders have suffered, and both have benefitted in ways. Big example of men being discriminated: when a couple divorces, women get custody of the children far more often than men, even if there are signs of serious abuse on the woman’s end, and even if the male is much more capable of providing. Yeah, we’ve suffered a lot, but this girl needs to accept that men can be our allies, and that they have suffered a lot from this as well. Another example: how society treats men who report that they’ve been raped. How most male victims feel they can’t report it because of the harassment they’d receive for being overpowered by a female. I could go on. TLDR: You’re a shit, both genders can benefit AND suffer from a patriarchal society, so do NOT criticize a male who doesn’t identify with contributing to sexism aimed at women, because not every male DOES contribute to it. Treat him as a fellow comrade.
