The main problem I have with Men’s Rights Activists is that their name really doesn’t do them justice. They’re Straight Cis White Men’s Rights Activists. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for the inclusion of trans* men in their spaces.

I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign to end the social stigma around black fatherhood. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for better pay and equal career mobility for men of colour. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists actively campaign for more gay men’s rights. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists advise others in their group on how using f*ggot to emasculate men who aren’t part of their cause is alienating and marginalising other MEN.

I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support victims of male rape unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of rape. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support male victims of domestic abuse unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of domestic abuse. Men’s Rights Activists are hypocrites and frauds.

They’re bitter privileged white men who don’t want to campaign for the rights of men — they want to campaign to keep their privilege unchecked and their ability to discriminate against others. If you want to be a real Men’s Rights Activist — be a fucking (intersectional) Feminist. Peace out.

All of this. The only men they care about are themselves, and the only thing they don’t like is that they might be treated the same way as everyone else.

why do black people use you in the wrong context? such is "you ugly" instead of "you're ugly" I know u guys can differentiate, it's a nuisance —Anonymous

you a bitch

It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.

So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.

MCU: former Soviet assassin, current non-soviet assassin
Fans: loyal member of the avengers
MCU: alien entity seeking to conquer earth, rule humanity, and enslave or kill anyone who doesn't bow to him
Fans: Misunderstood puppydog! He had a REALLY tough childhood you don't even know
MCU: Steve's lifelong best friend, now a cyborg super-assassin who's spend 50 years undergoing deep conditioning to hate and destroy everything the avengers stand for
Fans: well, a good old-fashioned dose of vitamin Steve and a trip to the Steve museum cleared that right up!! Now he and Steve are friends again and Tony forgave him for killing his parents and they all play games together in avengers tower
MCU: Tony's lifelong best friend, who's there for him through thick and thin, who calls him on his selfish behavior and has risked his life to fight alongside Tony on multiple occasions
Fans: wow, he's kind of a shitty friend, isn't he?
MCU: A former superhero who quit the life because too many people were getting hurt, and picked it back up for the same reason. In the meantime, he still wanted to help people, so he volunteered at the veterans' hospital. He is shown as perhaps the one person in the film Steve can genuinely trust
Fans: well, he's OBVIOUSLY a secret villain, working as a double agent for the nazis even though he apparently singlehandedly constitutes 25% of the MCU's black population
