The whole “heterophobia/cisphobia doesn’t exist!” thing is a controversial topic, but in the end if you think you’re allowed to insult someone because of something they cannot change, you’re in the exact same state of…

Also, I’m pretty sure cis-gendered heterosexual men are not actually targets of bullying. I know I certainly have never been constantly harassed and demeaned by anyone for being a straight cis-male.

Plus, as was already said, the result of “heterophobia” and “cisphobia” is some hurt feelings. Meanwhile, LGBTQ folks are dying.

Oh, and how about the fact that the “gay panic” defense, wherein a straight person murders a gay man or trans individual and claims they did it for fear of being raped, still gets used and even works—but LGBTQ individuals who successfully defend themselves from hate crimes END UP IN PRISON.

My hurt feelings because someone called me a “breeder” are not even remotely on the same level.

You know I was just going to leave it at “you’re stupid but you get points for trying” but I’m honestly curious as to how all of you insist i say heterophobia/cisphobia are real, i mean…i never said that?

Also 100 points for ignoring cisgendered heterosexual men who are bullied just so that you can pass as a hero in front of the lil itty bitty feminists. You’re fucking disgusting congrats I hope you’re fucking proud of yourself right now. Just because something has never happened to you doesn’t mean you have the right to claim it is the same way for all of those like you. Get your head out of your ass and start realising that people are fucking human (surprise!) and that humans don’t like getting pissed on for no reason. 

And oh wow, really? Seriously? My post literally means “cisphobia/heterophobia are diffucult topics but bullying someone for being who they are is wrong nonetheless" and you come up to me telling me LGBT+ peeps are dying but straight heterosexual men aren’t? With all the shit going on in Ferguson did you seriously just say that.

You’re blind to things that go against your arguments. People like you make me sick.

Did I say that heterosexual men aren’t dying? Did I suggest that we are immortal? No, I pointed out that our deaths are rarely ever just because we are straight and male. We aren’t targeted by an institutional bias that says our sexuality is wrong—that does not mean that we cannot be targeted for other reasons.

Did I say I was never bullied? No, I said I was never harassed for my sexuality. I have most certainly been harassed for being overweight or for being an atheist, but I have never been targeted for being a straight male.

You’re right in that that is based on my own experience, but I have yet to see anyone come up with compelling evidence that they were bullied for being a cis-gendered heterosexual, but there sure is a ton of evidence for LGBTQ individuals being bullied for being who they are.

What happened in Ferguson is a result of racism. Mike Brown was killed because of the color of his skin, not because of his sexuality. So yeah, it’s not at all gross of you to co-opt that tragedy to make an asinine point about how all hate is equally bad.

And yes, I totally called you on your tone-policing nonsense solely because I was trying to impress feminists. You got me. I, as a straight white male, could not possibly think your point was awful unless I was trying to make feminists like me or something.

"tone-policing" is just a buzzword people use to try to defend against people calling out their own bigotry.
Quit making excuses for bigotry. It doesnt matter how much others have it worse, NOTHING excuses bigotry.

"Man I am so sick of all these lazy black fuckers in my neighborhood"
"Whoa dude, dont say shit like that, thats fucking racist."
"HEY, I’M JUST VENTING, I HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE MAD, STOP TONE POLICING ME."

Oh, wow, false equivalency! That’s a totally new argument!

A white man who says black people are lazy is a racist. Pure and simple. He is speaking from a place of privilege and expressing hatred of a less-privileged group based on incorrect stereotypes.

A LGBTQ individual who expresses a distrust of straight people is doing so out of a sense of self-preservation because they know that there’s a good chance that any straight person they meet may want them dead or believe that they are not deserving of human dignity. They usually know this from a lifetime of experiencing just that. That is not the same as hating all straight people or wanting them dead just because you believe yourself to be superior to them.

Tone policing is telling a marginalized group that they are wrong to react to their own oppression with anger or resentment. If you honestly can’t see the difference between someone being angry that their rights and dignity are considered less important than someone else’s, and someone who’s angry that someone different from them exists: you have a serious problem.

Generalizing and hate towards an entire race or gender because of your personal experience. It’s not false equivalency, it’s perfectly fitting.
Fun fact, I never said the person in my hypothetical example was white or a man. Nice assumption there.
YOUR EXPERIENCE NEVER EXCUSES BIGOTRY. EVER.

"they have a right to be angry"
They don’t have the right to let their anger turn into bigotry.
You keep acting like people only fairly express their anger in a mean “tone” and don’t outright spout racism/sexism/bigotry towards whites/cis/men.
Quit excusing it, it’s not ok no matter who it comes from.

You are basically saying racism/sexism/bigotry/generalizing is ok as long as it happens to specific people.

People like you are the reason people hate SJWs.

Most people who are against feminism don’t give a damn what the dictionary definition is and is more interested in what terrible things the extremists are doing.”

I almost stopped reading right there. Always blaming those vocal minority extremists.
First of all, the dictionary definition doesn’t mean squat, action speak louder than words. Doesn’t matter whose actions, extremist or not.
Is it so hard to accept that people who are anti feminism are not so just because of the extremists making the rest of you look bad? 
See this 
http://master-bat.tumblr.com/post/93214144996/feminism-is-like-religion

I agree. There are other reasons to not be feminist. That’s why I don’t force the label on anyone and I don’t think anyone else should either.

Also keep in mind I never said there was anything inherently wrong with being anti-feminist. Just because I’m feminist doesn’t mean I have the right to judge all anti-feminists and hate them before I even really know them. I understand and agree with a lot of anti-feminist arguments.

That’s the same as saying if you like Bugs Bunny then you are a furry. You kinda have to accept the label too. It’s part of being a feminist.”

You’re right, it is the same, but not how you described it. You don’t have to be a furry to like Bugs Bunny, it takes more than that. Just like it takes more than simply being pro equality to be feminist.
You can be pro equality without being a feminist. Again, see the religion comparison.

…That is a direct rewording of what I said. Maybe I worded it strangely? Regardless, that is what I meant.

"…It kind of is. Women don’t have the rights to their own bodies and that’s why abortion is even considered an issue. I honestly believe that if the roles were flipped no one would even give it a second thought, it would just be a right."

Please. It’s not about women not having rights to their own bodies (circumcision?) it’s about what is perceived as preventing a fetus death. I’m pro choice, but I can still see that the issue isn’t about the women’s rights, but whether or not the fetus should be considered a person with it’s own rights. If men gave birth? It’d more than likely be the exact same.

Dear goodness, please excuse me. I’m still relatively new to this, and sometimes I word things in the absolute wrong way. I think I was still sick when I wrote this, I don’t even know what I was trying to say here. You’re completely right.

Lets ignore whether or not this statistic is true and worry more about the fact that rape is a thing that happens, and more often than we actually know since most rape isn’t reported because of victim blaming and the stigma that comes with being a victim.”

I really hope you are talking about women AND men, because that’s true for both, possible more so for the latter. Men being raped isn’t taken even REMOTELY as seriously as women, and the fact so many campaigns are gendered in favor of women, when they already have way more support in regards to rape, is a big issue. Rape isn’t a gendered issue, it needs to stop being treated like one.

Yes, of coarse I was talking about women and men. I’d have to be a moron to think that only women get raped.

BTW, I think you might have gotten a bingo. I realize much of your post was backing up the idea of how stupid many of the arguments were, but you also did a fair share of “femsplaining” along the way. You aren’t respecting the idea the feminism isn’t the end all choice and only way to equality. Egalitarianism exists, and there’s no debate of a gender bias for it.

That last paragraph…… See, we were both being so civil, but you just had to get condescending, didn’t you? I never said that if you fight for equality you have to call yourself a feminist. In fact, I said the opposite. Remember the furry metaphor?

If there is anything I can’t stand on this website, it’s moronic buzzwords like “femsplaining,” “manslation” or any of that other bullshit. That and how often people just love to put words in my mouth. Do you want to be an egalitarian? Fine. Want to be an anti-feminist? Cool. Go right ahead, I won’t stop or judge you.

A while back, I did a full rant on how people worry too much about their damn labels. If anything, this post is a good example why. Believe it or not, not everyone treats feminism like a religion. I personally follow the definition, kinda like someone who isn’t religious believing that the ten commandments are some pretty good general rules to live by. Therefore, I call myself a feminist. Don’t like that? If so, then you’re a hypocrite. Forcing egalitarianism on me is no better than someone forcing feminism on you.

You know where that leaves us? We both seem to share pretty much the same ideals and are fighting for the same things but you’re at my throat simply because we don’t live under the same word.

Think about that for a moment.

Alright, it seems we got some wires crossed and was mixed up on some of the things you were saying. I wasn’t trying to be on your throat for being feminist, it’s just I’m so used to feminists being on other peoples asses for not being so.

It’s so easy to predict the same bullshit responses when someone criticizes feminism (YOU JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT FEMINISM IS/ DICTIONARY DEFINITION) that I made this.

These are all valid points for feminism, you know that right?

Not by a long shot. 
A couple maybe in certain contexts. The top right specifically? Possibly, but a reverse also works (Just because you feel oppressed doesn’t mean you are) Probably should have worded that as feminists trying to claim you are oppressed even if you don’t feel you are. Which again can be valid in certain contexts, but rarely is in the way they use it as a dismissal.

Thats the problem with most of this. They’re dismissals. Ways to shut up those who don’t agree with them. Ways to avoid taking any critique.

Doesn’t change the fact the point of this post is that feminists tend to have an arsenal of predictable go to dismissals and responses.
YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND FEMINISM! THE DICTIONARY SAYS…
Every god damn time.

Action speak louder than words. That shit is literally as bad as the “not all men” feminists hate so much.

Ok, as a Feminist I’m gonna talk about my opinions on each of these “arguments.” This is gonna be a long post, so bare with me.

You just don’t understand what Feminism is.

This one often gets worded in the wrong way. Yes, this wording is bad. Most people who are against feminism don’t give a damn what the dictionary definition is and is more interested in what terrible things the extremists are doing. We cannot act like those people don’t exist or that we can simply push them aside or say they “aren’t feminists” because they aren’t following the true ideals of Feminism.

The way I like to word this is “don’t judge all feminists by the actions of the louder few.” If you actually take the time to look, you’ll find most feminists don’t act the way MRA’s or antifeminists claim we do. Most of us don’t hate men and don’t enjoy acting like we’re pathetic victims. Yes, the extremists and whiners are the ones you hear the most (especially here on Tumblr) but that doesn’t mean they make up the majority.

Anti-feminists are anti-equality

Not necessarily. I’ve seen many anti-feminists who are fighting for true equality just as much as I or many other feminists are. You can’t judge all anti-feminists by the louder few either.

You’re a MRA

Don’t force labels on people. This is a message to everyone, including fellow feminists.

Implying a woman that is anti-feminist is actually a man

Just don’t. You don’t really know and if you’re wrong it will make you look like a moronic asshole.

Just because YOU don’t feel oppressed doesn’t mean others aren’t

I’ll take this further. Just because you don’t feel oppressed doesn’t mean you aren’t. You could just be used to being treated as a lesser being. Now, whether or not you decide to take issue with it is your decision and I’m not going to try and claim that all women are “oppressed.”

Those aren’t REAL feminists they’re misandrists

That is taking a major problem and trying to act like it doesn’t exist. Which is bad. Don’t do that.

Yes, people who misuse feminism exist and should be singled out and stopped. End of discussion.

(Comparing anti-feminists to a group wanting to get their rights taken away)

Yes, feminism is what got women many different rights including the right to vote. No, that doesn’t give us the right to force the label on people or that people who think the label is no longer a good one should have those rights taken away.

Wage gap caused by gender discrimination

…It’s a thing? It exists? Not sure what else to say here.

Not enough women in office because sexism

See above

If you are pro equality then you are a feminist

That’s the same as saying if you like Bugs Bunny then you are a furry. You kinda have to accept the label too. It’s part of being a feminist.

Rape culture

Now that’s a term I like to avoid for the most part. I understand the concept behind it but many people take it too far and equate things like catcalling or casual sexism to rape which is… well… Putting things in perspective is important. No, having some asshole shout something sexual from a van is nowhere near as bad as actually getting raped.

Men suffer from the patriarchy too

Gonna ignore that P word and replace it with… Sexism? Gender roles? Meh, either works.

Implying abortion is a sexism issue

…It kind of is. Women don’t have the rights to their own bodies and that’s why abortion is even considered an issue. I honestly believe that if the roles were flipped no one would even give it a second thought, it would just be a right.

You should appreciate what feminism has done for you

Not a fan of guilt tripping. That’s why I don’t like the use of the phrase “male privilege” on this site either.

1 in 5 women are raped or other debunked statistics

Lets ignore whether or not this statistic is true and worry more about the fact that rape is a thing that happens, and more often than we actually know since most rape isn’t reported because of victim blaming and the stigma that comes with being a victim.

Can’t be sexist towards men/racist towards whites

Outright lie. That can and does happen. I’ve seen it.

Women’s privileges are caused by the patriarchy

…….Dear goodness. Two words I avoid. I’m gonna just ignore this one.

Feminism fights for women more because they have it worse

Generally speaking, yes. Although there are problems with every generalization.

Feminism is for equality of both genders

Yes it is.

Implying feminism and egalitarianism is the same thing

Feminism is specifically about gender/sex equality. Therefore they aren’t technically the same.

Saying men are making it all about them

Some do. I’ve seen it.

Mocking “But what about men?” when someone wants equal treatment.

?????

Feminism is about treating all genders equally. If you do this in the name of feminism you need to stop. Hate only breeds more hate.

Patriarchy

A word I avoid. There is no bigger thing to blame for sexism because it isn’t all caused by one thing. Say “society” or “gender roles” or “sexism” itself, don’t throw out some word that I’m sure most the people using it don’t even know the real meaning of.

Dismissing male victims in any way

Just don’t do it. Men’s issues is a part of feminism. Yes, if the discussion is specifically about women’s issues then that sort of thing should be held off until the discussion is over or actually about men’s issues, but actually going up to a male victim and dismissing him or even worse blaming him is just as disgusting as doing it to a woman.

Creating characters for Deadtown is interesting because so many of them are.. well dead. Not only do I have to write deaths for them, but they have to be significant or traumatic enough to bound their spirit to whatever their new body is.
Buried alive
electrocuted on the stage of a live concert
ripped apart by zoo animals
drowned in a mixing vat of chocolate
fell down stairs of a basement, and starved to death paralyzed in pure dark and silence

Cheery stuff.
