"This is in first person…" she whispered sadly as she clicked the back button on a fanfiction with a great summary.

Excuse the sloppiness. I feel like people are more inclined to read things when they’re a picture, so I made this to give a really BRIEF and SHALLOW explanation of why “reverse sexism” is a bullshit way of describing what’s actually happening: patriarchy backfiring against men. There is a lot more to it than just this, though.

it’s amazing how literally no one seems to get this
This explains it so perfectly and I love it because of that.
I just wanted to make a point about something that you said to an ask, that most men “don’t want to work with feminists to change custody laws.”
I just wanted to point out that we don’t NEED to change custody laws. Exaggerated complaints by men aside, actual studies show that when men actually want custody, they overwhelmingly get it.Even if they abuse their wife. Even if they abuse their child(ren). Even if they’re alcoholics or drug addicts or only want custody to spite and hurt their ex.
So uh, yeah, dudes, tell me again how child custody is skewed in favor of the mother?
Wow. Holy damn wow. Thanks for pointing that out. I am even more hardcore side-eyeing the absolute HELL out of MRAs atm.
Oh hey, yet another MRA talking point that is total bullshit. It’s almost like their movement isn’t about gender equality at all and is just about combating feminism with yet more misogyny.
Yes, yes, yes. The custody system is not biased towards women. It astounds me how many MRAs have the temerity to call themselves “skeptics” or “rationalist” when they seem incapable of understanding elementary statistics.
hmmm, is this true? It feels wrong somehow….anyone care to chime in?
Well, as you would know if you clicked on all of those various sources, it is correct. It probably FEELS wrong because we’ve all absorbed plenty of lies and stereotypes living in a society with fucked up power dynamics.
Several facts presented in detail, accompanied by links with verification of those facts, and someone STILL chimes in about how it “feels” wrong.
If that isn’t evidence that we’re living in a post-truth age, I don’t know what is.
