Open question for feminists: if feminism is about equality and the improvement of women’s condition, why do many of you spend so much time poo-pooing and mocking the experiences of other groups?
Because male circumcision is in no way the same thing as female circumcision. Because in no way does the “oppression” of males in anyway compare to the oppression of females. Males as a gender have never been oppressed. It’s not “poo-pooing” the experience of other groups; it’s being annoyed and angry and frustrated that other groups do not take female oppression and the fears females face every day seriously.
I’m glad that you reblogged this post (instead of using the answer function) so that I’m not the only who has to deal with your lack of reading comprehension and general intelligence. That’s right folks, the gloves are coming off tonight.
This post was never about female circumcision, female oppression, or any kind of fears faced, or not faced, by women every day. These things were literally never mentioned until you brought them up. This post was about about a couple of douchenozzles mocking the grief and anger expressed by a collection of people that I happen to belong to. It was a post tagged under ‘circumcision’, which meant that the people who check this tag on a daily basis have to see this drivel. I don’t give a rat’s ass if you care about circumcision as an issue, or sympathize with the people who feel victimized by it, but if you actively and viciously put down my experience, you will get a prompt fuck you from me.
And you know what else…
Fuck you for automatically assuming that male and female genital mutilation are not comparable, even though you obviously don’t know shit about either problem. Take a look a these two fucking sets of pictures and revel in the fact that (unless you live in a place where your being online is a virtual impossibility) your genitals are completely and utterly legally protected from any kind of non-consensual physical alteration. And keep telling yourself that is one is “in no way the same thing” as the other. You might want to repeat yourself out loud for reinforcement.
