I wonder how feminists will react to this
Probably ignore it then go back to making male tears mugs and gifs
Actually this is a very common idea among feminists
It’s something feminists have been talking about for years it’s called toxic masculinity and it’s one of the common threads among the topic of ‘Patriarchy hurts men too’. If fact the first time I read about toxic masculinity was on a feminist blog.
If you actually read things feminists talk about instead of straw manning them you might know this but OH WELL
The only time I’ve ever heard this topic brought up is by feminists. Feminism is working for the equality if women AND men
Don’t let anyone forget that.
Neil Patrick Harris talks about the HIMYM finale in his book, “Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography" (x)
This made me SO SO SO HAPPY GUYS
I love that Neil is jut in a point in his career where he can really say whatever the hell he wants. He’s so successful and talented, so he kind of just thinks “fuck it, I’m NPH” and does stuff like this. Because if he wasn’t NPH he’d probably have trouble in the future getting a job, etc, because he criticized past employers.
But I can seriously just see him sitting there like “Fuck it. I’m hosting the Oscars. I’m writing a book. They should feel honoured to have their writing criticized by me.”
I’m reblogging this again for that comment, and because I can just imagine him sitting there, penning this down like Barney writing the Playbook, and thinking to himself, “Y’know what? The finale sickened me. It sickened a generation. People need to stop thinking that I loved it, because if anyone says anything else to me about how I loved it and so did they, and then proceed to rant on and on about…Mosbatsky or whatever crap they call it, I will staple my junk. And that’s saying something. You know how I feel about my junk.” He then writes that segment in there, one eyebrow raised, and closes his book, tucks the pen into his pocket, and smiles to himself.
I need feminism because most men’s restrooms still aren’t equipped with baby changing stations. As someone who was married to a man who had sole custody of his young son, I’m hyperaware that feminism means EQUALITY, not female superiority. Feminism should and does support a man’s right to be as much of a parent to his child(ren) as any mother is allowed/expected to be.
This is a constant problem for Mr. Tea and myself. We’ve got twins, so even though I can change one kid on the change table in the ladies’ room, he’s left standing sort of awkwardly in the lobby with a messy child while I change one, come back, and get the other.
Nobody’s suggesting that men aren’t parents, so the lack of change tables goes well beyond ‘gender role reinforcing’ and straight into ‘ridiculous’.
My dad actually almost got kicked out of a mall once for changing my brother in the womens room of a mall. The only reason they didn’t call the cops on him was because the ladies in the room supported him.
I’d never even considered this but I support it
we live in a world where pizza gets to your house before the police.
That’s because the pizza guy has consequences if his job is done incorrectly.
but not by the pizza guy
