Feminism's hypocritical pretenses utterly, completely break-down when it comes to the topic of punishment. This really is where the whole ideological edifice just falls to clattering pieces.
Deep down, they think punishments should be for men only. Only in very odd situations (like the above) where women are perceived as getting harsher punishments, do they demand equality with men. They never demand that men be treated as leniently as women more typically are. They only scream about "double-standards" in sentencing when there is a failure in the normative and unremarkable double-standards which favor women.
Men 50/50 states, in that there is no reason to believe that the limited wrinkle discussed in the article means that the other issues related to disproportionate charging, sentencing, etc. are not present.
States where unfair prison sentencing happens based on gender:
Women: 1/50 states
Men: 49/50 states
But Wyoming is the issue?
Well I can agree that definitely isn’t fair, I would love to see feminists actually be about “equality” in sentencing in both sexes rather than just when it adversely affects a woman.
What really fucks me off about this is the end result. He gets a fucking criminal conviction for breaking her car radio.
She gets off scot free - she lied in court which is illegal and a hell of lot shittier than breaking a radio, and she cheated on him, morally one of the worst things you can do. Obviously no punishment for the wommen of course!
What the fuck is wrong with this cuntry why are the innocent males always dragged into these shitty situations.
If he had not met her he would not be a convicted criminal right now.
What a cunt. Bullet dodged.
she lied in court which is illegal and a hell of lot shittier than breaking a radio
You need proof beyond a reasonable doubt that she lied. The court saying it doesn't believe her enough to sustain a conviction doesn't mean there's strong enough evidence that she's lying.
Following the one-day trial, magistrates handed Baron a conditional discharge of 12 months. He was also ordered to pay £620 in court costs, which included £300 in compensation. Miss Cooke will not face any criminal charges.
Are you fucking kidding me? I get paying for the radio, justice should be blind and all sides should pay for any crimes no matter how small. But she lied under oath, perjury, falsified a police statement, defamation of character, and so many others that easily add up to MORE time and fines than what he is currently being ordered to serve/pay.
I really wish trials were done where the judge/jurors were in a sealed off room where they didn't know any physical features of either side until the case was over. Just facts vs. facts. But that's a pipe dream, I know.
I wrote a research paper for my criminal justice class about the bias towards male victims of sexual abuse and assault last year. Here are some sources for your possible referencing needs.
EDIT: Please forgive the typo I made in the title :/ totally my bad! I meant AGAINST male victims.
As a woman who cannot fucking stand the sexism towards male victims even nowadays, I've written 3 pieces about the discrimination faced by male victims of abuse. In my first semester of college (I'm in my third) I wrote a 16 page paper about the rejection of male victims by society. I recently found it at the bottom of my old papers and looked through my works cited. I thought this subreddit would appreciate these links.
Should you need a source for your claims, these may be of use to you. All are federal, journalistic, organizational, or academic sources found through university databases. I couldn't use all of the sources cited in my paper, these are the ones I found that were free to the public (I got every source freely because of aforementioned databases); if you still want the ones that cost money to access, let me know.
Thanks! What really bugged me is that a lot of these sources were really hard to find. I had to dig through multiple databases for some of them but it was worth it. :)
One of the pieces was in high school for speech and debate, and was more or less just a less detailed version of this research paper. I wrote the piece specifically on male sexual (not physical) abuse and performed it as a 10-minute speech. I pointed out that society finds male rape not at all serious, and used the "don't drop the soap" joke as an example. Every single time I could hear people laughing. I have a few male friends in prison and it seriously pissed me off. I'm not surprised, but people don't take male victims seriously at all. It's disgusting.
On the bright side, my professor really liked this specific research paper and gave me a 100, so I know at least one person took the issue seriously.
Good on you! Thank you!
Out of curiosity, what was the reception of your papers like? Are people taking the issues seriously?
Well, I'm glad your professor took it seriously at least.
Sadly, our culture still refuses to think of men as sexually abusable. It's still rather mind-blowing to me how people who are totally progressive on other issues can exhibit such blatant prejudice against men in so many ways. Even my parents just put their heads in the sand whenever I bring this stuff up. It's like a religious belief: they just can't incorporate any evidence to the contrary. I even pointed out how, in that CDC survey from 2012 (the same one that documented the 1-in-5 statistic for women assaulted on college campuses), the numbers show that men reported being assaulted just as frequently as the women did for the year of preceding the study's publication. My mom said that "didn't seem right," and when I called her on believing the numbers for girls, but not boys from the same study, she just waived her hand, said she didn't want to continue talking about it, and changed the topic. And she regularly goes on rants about how poorly women are treated in society.
We've got a long way to go....
That is totally mind boggling. I've heard of people discounting entire studies, sure, but not discounting one part of a study while believing another part. That is a new level of ignorance, jesus christ. But, of course, us women are ones badly treated in this society. Totally.
At least you know better and are willing to speak your mind about it. Even with the lack of research put into this subject, there's more than enough evidence in lots of places to back you up. I agree we have a lot of work to do before this disgusting bias ever starts becoming undone, but all the more reason to fight it.
Translation: I can't win any arguments so can everyone just stop talking for awhile.
Ask her if she thinks black men should be silent when she, as a white cis woman, is speaking. You might see sparks shoot out of her ears as her bullshit narrative is fighting with her virtue signaling chip.
[THREE DAYS LATER]
Waaaaaaaaah men aren't talking to meeeeee! This is misogyny!!!!!
If anyone is strenghtening the idea that women are weak, fragile and helpless in this society it's feminists.
apparently they don't value male customers. so stop shopping there.
Just barge right in like any "strong amazing woman" would do if there were a men's room.
Use them anyway!
Wow... Are they going to accuse Maui of raping the princess too??
Uhm, accuse implies you don't believe her, you monster. /s
Yeah ignore all the violence committed while as Te Ka, and ignore the violence necessary to defend Moana to even be able to do that.
Is it just me or are things like this becoming more common? It's great!
I'd serious watch a live cam of this booth. I can't even imagine the kind of abusive feminists that try to start shit with him.
I only happened to be walking by, but the conversation I did overhear sounded civil.
Men just need to know that they aren't going to make things worse by standing up for themselves.
Until very recently, other men would shit on any man who stood up for their rights, not to mention the feminists. Men's role as provider and shit-taker is pretty entrenched in our society: feminists have a vested interested in maintaining that gender role, and some men feel it as a personal attack if anything threatens their role (they feel lost without it, the same way some people historically felt/feel lost without their role as mother).
So now that a large enough number of men are starting to stand up for men's rights, those who don't feel that way are starting to be more vocal.
Its all about critical mass, and we are reaching it.
Old but relevant. This is still how it gets treated. If it was a guy that was shitfaced they'd probably just talk about how lucky he was and how he should stop being such a sissy for complaining about dat sex.
Why has this not been stickied? This is the single most-posted image on this sub.
They've charged him with sexual assault... even when she's sober.
Sorry dude I didn't know. I'm new here.
So she lied to him and the Gov't and some how that's not punishable???
TL;DR Child support came out of 3 of his paychecks ($50 each time) 15 years back. Because he didn't fight it, he is on the hook for all of it now according to the state (Texas | no shocker there). When fighting it in four this year he got a DNA test that showed the child was it his. Texas is likely considering him the primary 'father' because of his previous child support payments using the same laws that are generally applied to stepparents after a divorce (where one can be on the hook for child support if they were a long term acting parent).
EDIT with more info from other sources apparently he lived with the mom for several years as 'acting father' hence why this is holding so well in court.
TL;DR with commentary not enough brain power this morning to process my opinion with the new information currently Texas is absalutely fucking this mans life because they absolutely refuse to let people into welfare programs when it is easier to just to rob and/or jail and unrelated person and wipe their hands of it.
Yeah, the article just glosses over that but it's an important question: She swore under oath that he was the father. That wasn't true. Why isn't she being prosecuted for perjury or fraud?
Again. The child support system is completely fucked.
She is casually just reading out loud about how this dude recorded everything, including his every bowel movement. Meanwhile, Sam is struggling with one of the biggest decisions of his entire life. It is simply dramatic irony that one of the things she reads is something the audience can recognize as important.
wasnt the whole point of that scene to think "damnit sam...."
how was that scene ruined? do people not understand story telling?
Storytelling is sexist.
Exaclty, and the inability to see that kind of thing for what it is, is Feminisms and many other movements problem.
When you look for a problem hard enough, you begin to see it when it isn't even there.
