Faith in Humanity: Restored


This is, no hyperbole, one of the best things I’ve ever read. I legitimately cannot think of anything so thoroughly saturated with wonderfulness that I have ever read, at least not recently.

I actually have nothing to add. There’s nothing he forgot to mention. There’s nothing he said that he said wrong. There’s no little quibbles over minor things. Nothing. It is <i<perfect. And on top of the wonderfulness of this article, the fact that what this article actual is is a call to action? That is a giant goddamned cherry on top. 

Since it is impossible for me to debate this article at all, I am just going to go through this article, chronologically, and note everything that makes me want to vomit kittens and rainbows.

  1. The article uses non-heteronormative language when the subject is not even about LGBT issues.
  2. The acknowledgement of enabling behavior leaving you open to blame.
  3. The acknowledgement of men having a special importance in feminism due to their ability to get through to men who ignore female voices.
  4. How the article makes it explicitly clear, italic-fucking-text and all, that these issues are not debatable political or academic issues, and that we do not need to open ourselves to debate over them. I seriously do not have words for how refreshing and fantastic it is to read this as opposed to say it.
  5. The shooting down of the usage of the phrase “Political Correctness”, and a remarkably accurate translation of what it means
  6. The mention of claims of misandry. Everything about what he says about them is true, but I just fucking love the last part. Seriously- if you want women to stop hating men, stop giving them reason to.

And those are just the things that stuck out.

    Some of the comments on there are pretty depressing though.
