We’re Not Animals

NSFW at the link. Probably. Depending on where you workl.

This. THIS THIS THIS THISTHISTHISTHIS:

We (men) are not fucking sharks!

We are not rabid animals living off of pure instinct

We are capable of rational thinking and understanding.

Just because someone is cooking food doesn’t mean you’re entitled to eat it.

Just because a banker is counting money doesn’t mean you’re being given free money.

Just because a person is naked doesn’t mean you’re entitled to fuck them.

You are not entitled to someone else’s body just because it’s exposed.

What is so fucking difficult about this concept?

My New Year’s Resolution was going to be to spend less time on Tumblr but then there’s stuff like this.

    I’ve sufficiently curated my tumblr dashboard to contain sane people that within about ten minutes of reblogging this, it had been reblogged from me by one of the people I follow.
    Thank you, Athenae. I really needed this today.

    And remember, if a man says that men are lustful, irrational creatures that will try to fuck or kill anything that crosses their path, he’s OK; but if a woman says that then she is a hateful frigid bitch feminist. Or something.

    I can’t get away from Tumblr. Don’t follow it myself, but Lady Anne is a rabid Avengers-esp.-Jeremy-Renner fan, and makes sure I see whole bunches of silly and lovely and weird on Tumblr.
    And, yeah — it’s literally just another statement of the Do Unto Others thing. If she doesn’t expressly want it, assume she doesn’t and act accordingly.
    This is the true “entitlement society”. No one needs to justify anything as much as Men, especially Murkan Men, have to justify shit like this.

    This did the rounds among my friends a couple of days ago and almost immediately one thread got bombarded with the “men are sharks” crap. It made me sad.
    Filkertom, yes, it really is just another Ethic of Reciprocity thing at heart.
