hahahaha the person who called me a radfem has a post on their blog saying you shouldn’t send women unsolicited picture of your genitals because they might leak them.

Or maybe you could not send them because thats sexual harassment?

By the “not all men” logic, Russian Roulette is a perfectly safe game to play. Sure, one of the chambers has a bullet in it…

but not all chambers

Are you saying one in six men are rapists, criminals, etc.?

I’m saying that you cannot tell if a man is…

"EVERY MAN ON THE PLANET benefits from and contributes to sexism."
How radfem of you. That’s not an uncontroversial statement.

Anyway, the Russian roulette thing was a problem because it’s literally a one in six thing, BUUUT… if you’re including everything that could possibly go wrong with a male partner (rape/abuse/any manifestation of sexism) then it may very well be a one-in-six thing.

By all means, be as guarded as you want to be.

how am I a radfem for saying that all men benefit from and contribute to sexism. It’s literally a fact. I’m not sure you understand how power dynamics, politics, or the world work.

ok yes so I redid this one!! but I spent more time on it and I think it looks a lot better c: (at least in terms of line quality if nothing else)
plus, I remembered to put eyes and the mouth and eyebrows and things on different layers this time so that it’ll be easier to do different expressions and stuff later C:

oh wow, I love the outlines and colouring on this! :D

I get really, really angry every time I see someone comment on the russian roulette post acting like you are attacking men and not like "shit, that's a damn good point, we need to fucking fix this".

A

feelings are more important than the safety of women apparently *shrug*

I’m really not convinced those rape statistics in the last post were correct, but I’m not certain.

like, I find it impossible to believe that men commit 98% or rape.

This makes me so angry. YES, 98% of rapists (both male & female victims) are men. This does NOT mean that 98% of men are rapists. In fact, it’s estimated that only 6% of the male population are rapists. An estimated 25-30% of the female population have been raped. An estimated 10% of all rape victims are men.

So no, not all men. Nowhere near all men. A perpetrator is more likely to be male, but that has nothing to do with the male population. Studies show that the average rapist has around 6 victims. So it’s not men you need to be worried about.

However, the statement, “yes all women,” is true. With 1/3 of us being raped, it’s definitely a problem. But you can’t place the blame on men when 1/10 rape victims are men and only 3/50 men are rapists.

okay, so I’m not sure how you think percentages work, but 6% of the male population having committed rape is not a small amount of people.

I live in a city with a population of just over 4 million people. lets assume 50% of the population is male (this is just easier for maths, I’m not ignoring intersex people, non binary people, etc.)

approximately 18% of the population is under the age of 15, for the sake of argument, lets assume none of these males have ever committed rape (I know people under 15 can commit rape, but be kind, this makes the maths easier)

That means there are about 1,642,000 men over the age of 15 in my city.

If 6% of the male population are rapists (I don’t know if this statistic is true, I am quoting the above poster) that is 98,400 rapists in my city alone.

Thats almost one hundred thousand rapists. How is that a small amount of men? How is that something that something that is bad to criticise or highlight?

you’re all going down on this “russian roulette” themed ship with me

By that logic everything is dangerous. So just die already.

I’m saying that you cannot tell if a man is a rapist, an abuser, etc from a look and that women being wary of men, being intimate with me, being alone with men, etc, is completely justified.

A majority of rape comes from people that are close to the victim, not strangers wearing hoodies in alleyways. Abusive relationships tend to not be so obvious at first, especially to the victim. EVERY MAN ON THE PLANET benefits from and contributes to sexism.

You are not some special fucking cookie who is void of sexism, misogyny, transmisogyny. Criticism is valid. It will always be valid.

Saying “not all men…” when a woman says she is wary of men or that she is scared to walk to a train station at night is dismissive of the very real danger, and puts your feelings above women’s safety.

The feelings of men will never come before the safety of women.
