See, the joke is, I don’t really bathe in male tears.

None of us do.  I mean, as far as I know.  It takes a lot of male tears to fill a hot tub and you have to make sure they’re explicitly MALE tears and that takes a lot of work and, really, I just don’t have time for that shit.

But the joke, because apparently it needs to be explained to the same people who call women like me humorless, the joke is that people who are AGAINST feminism seem to think that we do.  That we are out to hurt men and make them cry because we crave their sweet, sweet tears.  Because there’s no way for women to get better things without causing some kind of direct pain to men (except for how a lot of what feminists argue for would benefit men as well).  And because we continue pressing forward, we must not care about how much men might hurt if a woman gets basic rights and needs.

So the joke is us saying “Okay, yes, sure, you’re right.  We DO bathe in male tears.  Obviously.  All along you boys have been totally correct about feminism.  A movement that is meant to help improve the place of women in society is still TOTALLY ABOUT HOW IT AFFECTS MEN.  We can’t deny it any longer.  We’re here to bathe in your tears and practice witchcraft and listen to Beyonce playlists.  You’ve clearly outwitted us.”

It is us basically flipping the middle finger to you.

Maybe you guys need a sense of humor or something.

Cosplayers! Can’t find those yellow Docs to make your Batgirl costume? Take a crack at my re-vamp of Supergirl, Batgirl and Wondergirl from a bunch of years back. I created versions that could be worn as street clothes as well as be identifiable as costumes. Black Docs, tights, jean skirt, bat hoodie, belt with bat buckle symbol and big ol leather jacket…Feel free to lengthen the t shirts on Supergirl and Wondergirl…I would at this point in time…

Fox host Tucker Carlson has a message for male victims of domestic violence: "That is embarrassing, getting beaten up by your girlfriend." 

But domestic violence against men, carried out by women, is no small problem. In 2013, the CDC reported that 29% of heterosexual men in the U.S. reported being victims of domestic violence at the hands of their female partners. And that doesn’t account for the number of assaults that go unreported.

If anyone should be “embarrassed,” it should be Fox, given Tucker Carlson’s repulsive behavior. Rhetoric like his is a perfect example of why male victims may be less inclined to speak out about their abuse. 

Carlson’s minimizing abuse of men in no isolated incident. In early June, the same host said that teenage boys think that sexual harassment from a female teacher is the "greatest thing that ever happened." A month later he attacked a kid for reporting statutory rape as "whiny."

Tucker Carlson could get beat up by a toddler.

But, no, really, please keep blaming feminists for the silencing of male victims.
