I'm a man...



I am a MAN!

I stand up for the inalienable right of women to hold dominion over their reproductive systems.

I stand for the affordable and safe reproductive healthcare.

I stand up to the patriarchal bullies who have enslaved, subjugated, oppressed and marginalized women for millenia.

I do not stand alone.

We are multitudes. We stand with women, not against them. We are men of honor - not sniveling cowards.

Every mother, sister and daughter is a human being.

I vote every chance I get.

End the war on women NOW!

3. Here here!

This is frustrating. I'll admit that reproductive rights are not front and center in my political mind but I also realize that that is partially because of my sex. As the last couple of weeks have gone by I have come to see that women are being unfairly used for political ends of rich white men. And frankly I don't think that the voices of women and their supporters in the male population will be silenced this November. I think this is going to be a big time losing issue for the reptilians this November.

4. bless all of you. It is hard to remember that there are good men when this spew

comes at you. This is the second time in my life that hatred of women is coming at me. I went through this back in the day and now? Again?Good men are blessings.

24. When the restaurant chain of Hooters started popping up

 

around the country some 15 years ago, I was floored.

How could this happen in post-feminist America?

Just unbelievable.

12. Photoshopped, but the message is good

My point about it being photoshopped is simply that we don't know who put that together, whereas if he had actually been holding the paper it would have been pretty obvious that he was holding it. In this photoshop his hands aren't anywhere near the paper.

The message is nice though.

13. "Feminism is the radical notion that women are people"--Rebecca West


Cicely Isabel Fairfield (21 December 189215 March 1983), known by her pen name Rebecca West, or Dame Rebecca West, DBE was an English author, journalist, literary critic and travel writer. A prolific, protean author who wrote in many genres, West was committed to feminist and liberal principles and was one of the foremost public intellectuals of the twentieth century.



I've been saying for quite some time that THE enabling factor in oppression and widespread abuse of women is the notion that women are not fully human, a notion that is reinforced daily in millions of ways, mostly subtle and embedded in the language and culture.

It's great to see this eloquent man speaking out. I'm going to Facebook right now!

Very strong statement and not the least bit inflammatory. Anybody who feels insulted by this has some mirror issues.

to those that presume to talk shit and not know what they're talking about. I'm a woman not a man.

I'm also not surprised some of you enjoy--by your own words--men to throw you against a wall. I prefer my man to love me like the queen I am. I rock his world and he doesn't have to throw me anywhere.

Y'all have a nice day now.

34. They're having great fun over there, the ten or twelve of them

The same ten or twelve who, apart from their interactions with each other on the internet, live sad little lives, devoid of human contact. The woman who wants to be thrown against a wall is a particularly hateful type. Getting thrown against a wall would comprise the whole of her sex life for the year.

She invited quite a few of her male counter parts to throw her against the wall. Hmmm....

They're all hateful assholes.
