Considering the lack of resources for men and the abuse they get in even trying to use those resources, I’m all for raising awareness.
But the image text isn’t entirely accurate.
I’m assuming the 70% statistic comes from this - which says 50.3% of violence is nonreciprocal, and of that half, women are predominantly the aggressors (70.7%).
As for the actual percentage of victims, no one knows what it precisely is - only that there isn’t a significant gender gap when it comes to who’s the abuser and who’s the victim. Over 500 studies show it’s about 50/50. [1] [2] [3]

To dig a bit more into these statistics, because this is something I enjoy doing and it’s also an interesting way to examine how social expectations contrast with what actually plays out in reality, using the numbers above we can extrapolate that;
If 50.3% of domestic violence is nonreciprocal, and70.7% of that shows women as the predominant aggressors, then
29.3% of nonreciprocal violence shows men as the predominant aggressors49.7% of domestic violence is reciprocal.
And so the total ratio of violence isMen are violent in 64.4379% of all domestic violenceWomen are violent in 85.2621% of all domestic violence

Of course, the numbers don’t actually say anything with regards to instigation for just under half of the cases (the 49.7% reciprocal, that is), so we can’t really draw any conclusive ideas about “Who started it”. We can see, however, that in terms of domestic violence, women show slightly over 20% more likelihood of having been violent during a dispute than men. This really doesn’t add up with cultural expectations, especially ones such as those underpinning the Duluth Model.

Interestingly, the study also showed that “in relationships with reciprocal violence it was the men who were injured more often (25 percent of the time) than were women (20 percent of the time)”.

I’m not okay

I’ll never be okay

but seriously, how often do you see a male main character- much less a main character of a shonen- be genuinely disappointed and angry with himself because he wasn’t sensitive and perceptive enough about a woman’s feelings? Not in a “because she’s mad now” way, but in a “I should have been there for her” way.

AND ACTUALLY CHANGE AS A RESULT OF THAT AND BECOME MORE SENSITIVE AND HONEST IN THE FUTURE?

not a hell of a lot.

It makes me want to cry because people focus on the fact that females get written so poorly because females don’t appear as much or they don’t have added depth but it’s really similar for males now too and not for the same reasons.

We as a society have run into an issue where the males that get more screen time become devalued as well and time and time again you rarely see a large amount of depth in the male characters that are written anymore because they’ve been written so much people just add a few attributes to a male and boom they have a character, nobody really takes the time to add depth anymore and growing pains and let’s us see what it’s really like to be a male in society

Yet a woman who wrote a story about two brothers that featured men far more prominently than women wrote  all of these men to perfection and added depth and realism to their development.

Even the women had a lot of development.

A woman did that, she showed us what it was really like for men like Ed who have short tempers and are very opinionated and showed us his depth and emotion.

How sad and amazing is that?

Feminisim is a fight for equality and Arakawa helped the male side of the fight exponentially by writing FMA.

It’s ok for boys to be emotional because they are, boys aren’t emotionless, they go through a lot of the same abusive issues Edward and Al went through, it’s ok to cry, it’s ok to be human.

Thank you Arakawa for opening my eyes and letting me really see what the male side of things is really like because as a female we don’t get to see that kind of depth for our male characters, people write males for females as though they’re strong and minimize their flaws and don’t give them emotion but as a female I want to get attached to a flawed male character and to this day Edward and Al are still my boys.

BREAKING: Seattle becomes the first city to raise its minimum wage to $15/hour. SHARE if Congress should take Seattle’s lead! 
the current minimum wage (at least in NY) is $8.00 and less than a year ago it was $7.25, so yes.

Wow

Nope nope and nope. Make better decisions and life and you won’t be working a minimum wage job.

^ That’s literally the dumbest fucking thing I’ve ever read in my life. Are you the kind of person that goes up to homeless people and tells them to get a job? Good fuuuuuuuuuuuucking lord. If everyone was able to get a “better” job, there would be absolutely no-one populating the mass expanse of the workforce. Are you unable to see how this suggestion is completely and utterly illogical? And extremely rude?
Thank god people in Seattle have good heads on their shoulders so single mothers working 3 minimum wage jobs to feed their children can finally be treated like actual live human beings with needs and not capitalistic automatons. 

"Just get a better job" is the most white bread privilege shit I’ve ever heard.

I don’t even think it’s white privilege. I think it’s just near-bottomless dumbfuckery.

"Get a better job," they said.
Suddenly, every custodian everywhere quits their job and gets a better one. Now, upon entering public restrooms, everyone is handed a spray bottle and toilet brush, because now they have to scrub their own shit out of that public porcelain throne. Women’s restrooms come complete with plastic bags, because they have to bring their soiled period products home with them and dispose of them at home, because there is no more public waste removal.
"Get a better job," they said.
All fast food employees quit and find a “better job”. No more fast food places! There also aren’t any restaurants. Better learn to cook your own shitty garbage burgers. You have only yourself to yell at if you forget the cheese.
"Get a better job," they said.
Retail stores no longer have any employees. All shopping must be done online, but you have to drive out and pick up the supplies yourself because the Fedex people quit and got better jobs, too.
"Just get a better job," they said!
You now have to grow and make every single thing you ever consume for the rest of your life, because no one wants to do it for you at $7 an hour.
Fuck you.

direcartographies:

fun fact: the reason that the plural of goose is geese but the plural of moose is not meese is because goose derives from an ancient germanic word undergoing strong declension, in the pattern of foot/feet and tooth/teeth, wherein oo is mutated to ee. however ‘moose’ is a native american word added to the english lexicon only ~400 years ago, and lacks the etymological reason to be pluralized in that way.

Oh baby.  Keep talking dirty to me.

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.


I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question
