Black and White NY Part VI

Are those the Lawrences at the bottom!?

I thought the same thing!

  • Feminists:

    Hey. We'd like for women to be treated as equals.

  • Society:

    Oh sure. You want "equality" but then you expect men to open the door and pay for meals, is that it? That's not equality! That's special treatment!

  • Feminists:

    Um, no not really. You don't have to open the door and pay for our meals. We can do that ourselves.

  • Society:

    *gasp* What? You don't want men to open doors for you? Why do you hate nice people? No wonder chivalry is dead! You'd yell at a man for just being polite and opening the door for you?

  • Feminists:

    No! We're just saying you don't have to do it just because we're women!

  • Society:

    And while we're at it, how come you don't protect male victims of abuse and rape, huh?

  • Feminists:

    Actually, we think it's really terrible that men are forced to stay quiet about their abuse because they're worried about not being taken seriously. It's this Alpha Male myth that causes it. Men are abused and raped and they're not helped because men are supposed to be tough and able to handle it. This also goes for men not being able to express emotions.

  • Society:

    Oh, so you just want men to be a bunch of pansies then, huh? You hate men for wanting to be strong LIKE NATURE INTENDED THEM TO BE. You'll be sorry when you end up married to some weak, simpering fool who likes to talk about his "feelings"!

  • Society:

    Also, you can't have equal rights because women aren't aggressive enough to want higher pay and stuff.

  • Feminists:

    HOW ABOUT YOU GO FUCK YOURSELF AND THE HORSE YOU RODE IN ON?

  • Society:

    Jesus, calm down. No need to be so aggressive.

*You’ve* never been arrested before?

L.A. Police officer speaking to a Black actor who pretended to break in to Jason Roberts’ car while Roberts filmed it.  Roberts, who is White, also filmed himself  breaking into the same car to demonstrate the difference in peoples’ reactions based on the race of the person attempting to break into the car.  Roberts tried to break into his own car for 30 minutes and nobody bothered him.  A police car even drove past at one point and did nothing.  When the Black actor, Quentin Brunson, attempted to break into the car, the police were called and showed up within 2 minutes.

Happy (feminist) Valentine’s Day!

Be consensual, be yourself, be loved.

Of course I am not worried about intimidating men. The type of man who will be intimidated by me is exactly the type of man I have no interest in.
