I have an adult blog on tumblr and I post adult content. I follow other blogs like this which will openly post porn etc. Thats why I followed them. But, a lot of the time, they post things such as
"I hate men! Men are all pigs and rapists! Kill all men! I am a feminist!"
Forgive me if I'm wrong, but isn't feminism all about equality? why are they like this?
I come home to a DP who treats me like a princess. If I say no, it's no. He'll open a door for me and all that crap (one thing these tumblr feminists don't like, is they HATE men doing ANYTHING for them. I don't understand why.) He is NOT a rapist, a pig, he can be an idiot but thats why we love our DPs. Apparently I am a shit woman for having a male P.
I got a compliment from some guy in the street saying I looked good on a night out. he asked me if I had a boyfriend and I said yes I do, so he said ah man cool have a good night then walked off and congratulated my partner for having me! According to tumblr feminists, he raped me just by looking/talking to me. Anyone want to tell me why?
These people think that if you are transgender (FtM) you are just as bad as a man because you identify as a man.
And also, these people like to make words up for themselves. Like, "I am a transfat feminist who is schizophrenic and has PTSD, I am triggered by anything to do with fattism and the colour Teal."
are these people serious?
Like, I'm all for equality. I just want everyone to be equal but under no circumstances can I see these girls/women to be feminists when they don't want men, they hate and want to kill men and all transgendered men and bring their sons up as girls.
This is not feminism is it?
Are they being serious?
It winds me. Anyone who can not wind me and still answer this OP will get a cake & brew grin

We love our DPs because they're idiots? hmm Okaaaaaaay then.

Not like any feminist I ever met, anyway!

But tumblr does tend to attract the erm colourful . I haven't been on in ages.

Yes. We are all the same. All of us.

Okaayyy.... confused

[Edges out of thread]

"Forgive me if I'm wrong, but isn't feminism all about equality? why are they like this?"

They aren't. Ive yet to meet a man hating feminist but it would appear there is plenty about on the old t'internet.

"He can be an idiot but thats why we love our DPs."

No, I actually admire my husbands intellect. Its a quality I find attractive.

"he said ah man cool have a good night then walked off and congratulated my partner for having me! According to tumblr feminists, he raped me just by looking/talking to me. Anyone want to tell me why?

They are wrong. That is not rape which I am sure you are aware of but quite frankly the "congratulated my partner for having me" would have royally pissed me off. Mainly because I am not a possession.

In all honestly? I think its fairly obvious you have encountered a few "radicals". Remedy? Pinch of salt and a good read of the FWR boards here. I'm not a regular poster, only a lurker but the vibe here is positive and intelligent with a good amount of humour thrown in.

JustTheRightBullets Mon 01-Sep-14 15:45:59

Even 'radicals' don't believe what the op has said. And radicals wouldn't be posting porn on their tumblr.

IrenetheQuaint Mon 01-Sep-14 15:49:27

grin really? I've hung out with a few radical feminists in my time and none of them have ever expressed a wish to kill all men or been triggered by the colour teal. Nor do they bring up their sons as girls (how would they do that? call them Melissa and make them pee sitting down?).

I think these posters (if they exist...) are just winding you up.

openly post porn

I hate men! Men are all pigs and rapists! Kill all men! I am a feminist!

I am a transfat feminist who is schizophrenic and has PTSD, I am triggered by anything to do with fattism and the colour Teal

OP...do you ever see any feminists on MN who say or do these things?

msrisotto Mon 01-Sep-14 15:52:46

I have no idea what you're talking about.

There are so many medias in which to network as a feminist, I must be missing out on this one....

grin

OP, either you are joking or someone is taking the piss out of you.

These are 'real' feminists about as much as I am a real dragon.

Bless your little heart.

Also, y'know, we're not the borg. We don't all know each other. Did you expect someone would reply 'ooh, yes, that is our east-Anglian contingent, who post Tuesdays and Fridays and go by the secret motto Kill-the-unbelievers-with-leg-hair-nooses'?

i tend to assume that almost no one in real life is like the people on tumblr

cailindana Mon 01-Sep-14 16:19:05

Clearly no one here thinks those kinds of things as no one posts them, so how would we know what other random people on the internet think?

"Clearly no one here thinks those kinds of things as no one posts them, so how would we know what other random people on the internet think?"

Silly - because women all think the same things. Honestly, you don't think we have minds of our own do you!? grin

OP, your basic error is spending time on Tumblr.

HTH wink

BriarRainbowshimmer Mon 01-Sep-14 17:18:18

I definitely shimmer like a rainbow irl <prances around>

BriarRainbowshimmer Mon 01-Sep-14 17:23:10

But what am I still doing here, time to post some porn on my tumblr blog!

I'm not green, long or nutritious sad

I am on Tumblr and a feminist. I find a lot of Tumblr social justice annoying, but don't recognise your description OP.

7Days Mon 01-Sep-14 17:26:44

But are you a delicious spongy treat, AC?

almondcakes Mon 01-Sep-14 17:29:09

A delicious spongy experience perhaps. A treat might be somethingof an exaggeration.
