"Sometimes this really seems to shock people. They appear genuinely upset when I say ‘this conversation is over’ or ‘I’m actually not interested in debating this with you.’ There’s an expectation that if you care about social justice and political issues, you’re always ‘on.’ You’re always ready to debate, you’re always ready to have theoretical discussions about your own lived experiences and the issues you care about, you’re always ready to defend yourself. That’s manifestly ridiculous and unjust, an expectation that’s simply not reasonable."

Additionally, some arguments are just so thoroughly discredited that even bringing them up automatically concedes any debate they wanted to have; and it behooves us to tell them they haven’t earned a seat at the grown-ups table.

anti-feminism-pro-equality:

40% of domestic abuse victims are male

Not anti-feminism.
Feminism fights gender roles, gender norms. Gender roles say that men aren’t allowed to be hurt, emotional, and god forbid they get beat up by women. Feminists don’t want that for men. That’s saying that all the “stereotypes” of femininity are weak and not to be desired. Feminist goals would allow for men to get treatment and help at abuse centers.

then explain why feminists threatened an all male domestic abuse shelter with bomb threats until they shut themselves down. I am also fairly sure afterwards, feminists purchased it and turned it into an all women’s shelter.

Yo, feminists fought to close the only male shelter within fifty miles of my area, which directly contributed to my brother’s death at the hands of his abusive wife.
So don’t even try to tell me that feminists care about men. Because in the majority of cases, that’s not true.

If feminists want to keep claiming they “help men too”, they really need to step their game up.

I love how feminism fights “violence against women” directly, but when it comes to men, it’s just “we’re, uh, fighting gender roles!” Because they know men aren’t being fought for directly. And even the ones that do claim there’s direct activism almost never provide examples.
Also, many domestic violence policies basically amount to “the man is the abuser, and the woman was just defending herself”. You’re not going to fix that by just addressing women’s gender roles.
Also, “abuse is violence against women”. Sound familiar?

I really think this is more a domestic violence issue then feminism issue.  Sure domestic vie de can be talked about in feminism, and maybe a lot of people have a sexist opinion, but this issue isn&#8217;t gonna be solved by taring down feminism.  It can only be helped by speaking more about domestic violence and taking direct action on the issue.
