12-year-old girl: I don't want kids when I grow up.
Society: You'll change your mind when you get older. You're only 12. You're too young to know what you want.
16-year-old girl: I'm pregnant.
Society: How could you be so stupid? Do you know anything about safe sex? You should be ashamed.
20-year-old woman: I'm a single mother with an infant son.
Society: You should've gone to college first. You need a stable career before you can support a child.
33-year-old woman: I'm married and my spouse and I both have stable careers. I have two young daughters now.
Society: You're not staying home? Who's going to take care of them? You're just going to put them in day care while you work? That's selfish of you. You can't expect to raise decent kids with a full-time job.
45-year-old woman: I just had my first child.
Society: Why would you have a child when you're that old? Do you realize the health risks of being pregnant at your age? When your kid is a teenager you'll be a senior citizen. That's inconsiderate of you.
60-year-old woman: I haven't had any children.
Society: Your life must be so unfulfilling. Is there something wrong with you? Why didn't you want kids? How strange.

We mustn’t forget the nannies, housecleaners, and other under-represented and undervalued women workers - whose protections are so few and their burdens so many. 

also “unemployed” women in the home who perform countless hours of unpaid labor because their work isnt deemed valuable to the capitalist 

As an economist, a feminist revolution is extremely needed in macroeconomics. Imagine if all that unpaid caring became productivity that was captured in the GNP! Recession could be a thing of the past!
Honestly I should really start that economics blog. However if you’re interested the wikipedia page for feminist economics is suddenly REALLY GOOD. Also a good description of how much neoclassical economics is hilariously depressing when it describes childcare, housework and caring as ‘non-economic activity’. *cries until all despair is gone, i.e. forever*

man, i am continually getting into arguments which I don’t have enough economics knowledge to get out of effectively - thanks for the link

If we can’t write diversity into sci-fi, then what’s the point? You don’t create new worlds to give them all the same limits of the old ones.
What's your opinion when people get angry at guys who say "not all men" and blame then for rape culture? I'm a women and a feminist and it bothers me so much. It is literally just like any other stereotype and men have a right to feel hurt if they are clumped into one group? They shouldn't excuse the issue because they don't cause it directly, but it is totally true that "not all men rape". Just like "not all Muslims are terrorists" it's the same deal. What do you think?

fuck-yeah-feminist:

For starters, that’s a false analogy. It’s not “the same deal” at all.

Muslims are a minority group in this country. They face huge amounts of prejudice, and are stereotyped for something that is completely inaccurate. “Terrorism” is a racialized term, and white men commit far more violent acts each year in America than Muslims of all races and genders combined.

Men, on the other hand, are NOT a minority group in this country. They do NOT face vast prejudices, and statistically speaking, they DO commit the vast majority of rapes.

———

Of course, we know that not all men are rapists. Obviously. However, all of them unavoidably exist in a system (rape culture) that privileges them, makes excuses for their actions, and blames victims instead of calling out reality. Claiming “not all men” dismisses that fact.

And like you said, “They shouldn’t excuse the issue because they don’t cause it directly”… but that’s exactly what these comments do.

Consider the following male responses in a discussion of rape:

  • "But I’m a good guy! Not all men are rapists, you know. How dare you bunch me in with them.”
  • "I agree. Since the vast majority of rapes are perpetrated by men, we should talk about why we teach that rape is an acceptable part of masculinity. I know that being male doesn’t make me a rapist, but other guys need to understand that our sexuality is in control as well."
  • "Male entitlement has gone too far. It’s tough, but I always try to call it out when I see it amongst my friends."

Which ones are helpful?
