I find horror movies to be legitimately terrifying, to the point that I can’t watch them anymore. Every time I do I end up having the same nightmare for weeks.

It begins with me shouting “Think quick!”, as I throw a fully-written female character at a horror movie screenwriter. But his arms remain at his side and he allows her to fall on the floor. Then without leaning down to pick her up, he says, “Don’t worry, I’ve got these”, and proceeds to reach into his pocket and pull out two babysitters, three anxious girlfriends and a room full of college girls; all of them covered in blood. I try to tell him how lazy that is, but the words don’t come out right. It’s at this point that I realize that the horror movie screenwriter is masturbating. 

Then I wake up.

Now how am I going to find a misogynist with yellow fever to nurture and care for and tell me what to do?

If you’re not upset about Katniss, Tonto, or Khan being played by white people, but you are upset about Annie being played by a black girl, you’re probably racist.

And by probably I mean definitely.

After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.

BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?

BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?

The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

guns… literally more important than the lives of women in the state of loveable mormons

Update http://www.usu.edu/ust/index.cfm?article=54178:

Anita Sarkeesian has canceled her scheduled speech for tomorrow following a discussion with Utah State University police regarding an email threat that was sent to Utah State University. During the discussion, Sarkeesian asked if weapons will be permitted at the speaking venue. Sarkeesian was informed that, in accordance with the State of Utah law regarding the carrying of firearms, if a person has a valid concealed firearm permit and is carrying a weapon, they are permitted to have it at the venue.

Way to stand up for freedom, Utah.

Men are encouraged at every turn to not be interested in women’s experiences.

The best example of this is ‘chick flicks’. When a film features men and male protagonists it is just a film, and it’s genre is decided by its content. But if a film focuses on women, in a way that is not geared towards the male gaze (which is to say it features women as people and not objects), it’s a chick flick. For women, by women, about women, it is of no concern to us.

"Hey bro come over to my place, we’ll crack open a few brewskis and watch Thelma and Louise". - Why does that sentence read like a joke?

Because the performance of masculinity requires constant distancing from anything feminine. While the obvious effects of this distancing are discussed often (don’t be a girl, don’t be girly), the truly insidious effect that is less often discussed is again; don’t be interested in things that interest, feature or focus on women. I argue that this is possibly the most important facet of masculinity to consider when judging a man’s character, as it will undoubtably speak to the way in which he considers, or does not consider women.

The question becomes: Does he give a fuck about women outside of fucking them.

This question will reveal more about a man’s views on women than his behaviour, as one can control one’s behaviour in order to present a more agreeable version of themselves, which is to say a guy on a date that doesn’t act overtly sexist doesn’t necessarily respect women. So instead of waiting for proof of the negative, seek proof of the affirmative.

If he says he loves books, ask him who his favourite female authors are. If movies, ask favourite female actors, directors. If music, ask favourite female artists, bands. If comedy, ask favourite female comedians. Same goes for science, architecture, hotdog eating contests and deep sea diving. Make searching for women a knee-jerk reaction to any expression of interest, and always follow it up with a why.

And the single best and most illuminating question? Favourite female characters in fiction. We can discuss fiction for hours, and yet this simple question can completely stump men, unless of course a sexy action heroine comes to mind quickly.

And let it also be said that despite the fact that men can fail this, it should not be considered a test. Talking about women shouldn’t be a challenge, and if you’re a woman you shouldn’t feel like you’re directing the conversation in an unfair direction simply by entering your gender into it.

Take what a man loves, and see if he respects women enough to love, appreciate, or even just consider the part that they play in it. This is a surer way to gauge a man’s sexism than to wait for him to act on or speak to it, especially in a setting in which he is trying to impress you.

Because if you can discover quickly whether or not a man appreciates women in his day to day life then you can discover quickly whether or not he is capable of appreciating you, and that is the goal to which we should all strive in all friendships and relationships, as opposed to merely finding someone that can maintain a visage that seems inoffensive.
