DEBUNKING THE MEN’S RIGHTS MOVEMENT
MARCH 12, 2014
What follows is a response to a popular list of claims and arguments made by men’s rights activists.
1. SUICIDE: Men’s suicide rate is 4.6 times higher than that of women’s. [Dept….
Have you ever wanted to drink a cocktail made from creme de menthe, lime juice, bitters & gin? Me either. But the Victorians sure did!

It’s time to flush your stereotypes down the drain.
Congratulations, gamer girls—you’re officially at the top of the food chain when it comes to games. A new study released by the Entertainment Software Association has revealed that adult women now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry. Women over 18 made up a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population, followed by adult men at 35 percent.
So my facebook friend just posted this pic with this text….Well, I just witnessed blatant racial injustice with my own eyes. I was getting in my car after exiting a store when a young black man stumbled past me and collapsed against the store wall. When I got out to see if he was okay, a group of white people came rushing over, one of whom was a 20-something white woman who declared in distress, “I ran a red light and hit him with my car!” People immediately assured her that SHE would be okay, meanwhile the young man is writhing in pain on the ground, pants leg torn, tears running down his face. When the police arrived and the young woman explained what happened, it was suggested to her that maybe the light had been yellow and that the young man had “darted out into the street into her path.” I was floored. I said, “But she just SAID she ran the red light and hit him in the intersection!”

[Highlighted elements of sex trafficking in the porn industry connect with the examples Lubben gives in this specific gifset, other elements do occur in the porn industry as well].
"The federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act defines the crime of human trafficking as:
A. The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act where such an act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age, or
B. The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.” - (x)
… [P]ersons are trafficked into the international sex trade, often by force, fraud, or coercion. The sex industry has rapidly expanded over the past several decades. It involves sexual exploitation of persons, predominantly women and girls, involving activities related to prostitution, pornography, sex tourism, and other commercial sexual services. The low status of women in many parts of the world has contributed to a burgeoning of the trafficking industry. -
The Victims of Trafficking and Violence Prevention Act (TVPA). TVPA combats trafficking in persons, especially into the sex trade, slavery, and involuntary servitude. It has been reauthorized three times since its initial passage: (x)
THAT IS RAPE
We need to be talking about this and we need to be making sex work safe. No one should be made to feel like this treatment is okay.
This needs to be seen and people need to speak out about it.
This is horrifying and mainly why I refuse to ever do straight porn. It’s not worth it. We need to retrain the industry and make sure this shit stops happening right now.
Hello everyone! I don’t usually post things like this but a dear friend is in some serious trouble and I am asking for help. My friend, who is the gentleman in these photos, is very sick with Ulcerative Colitis and a rare liver disease known as Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis(PSC). Since both of these illnesses are invisible diseases his family has not been understanding at all of how serious they are, and have kicked him out because they believe him to be exaggerating how dire his condition is. He is, in fact, slowly dying of his liver illness so it is unfortunate that in our day and age a dying man can be made homeless by his own family because he “doesn’t look sick”.
As a result of this he now has multiple deep expenses that he is dealing with alone, and is having problems getting to his home state of Nebraska where there is more opportunity for him to live out the last years of his life in peace away from his abusers. I am asking if you could please donate whatever funds you have to help him get on his feet and off the streets.
Before I give you the link to do so, here is a breakdown of what your money would be paying for:
-Medical bills. In America especially, Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis(PSC) is an expensive disease. There is a constant need for check ups and monitoring, and since each case is so individual, Alex may need either a transplant or cancer treatment at any moment.
-Rent and food. His access to food is currently threatened due to so much of his personal finance being tied up in paying medical bills. People with his liver disease often need more food then the average person to function- the disease wastes much of the bodies time and energy attacking the liver instead of feeding itself. Both Ulcerative Colitis and PSC also come with many sick days spent at home- having a home to go to during these times is very important, and since many of the treatments for said disease compromise his immune system that home needs to be safe and sanitary.
-A bicycle. You might think when you read that, “What?! A bicycle? Why is that a big need for a poor person?” A bicycle is a more accessible transportation option for a person of limited means. There are no insurance payments or bus fees, and no gas to worry about paying. Alex would be able to get to work in Nebraska regardless of any emergency expenses that come up.
Our fundraising goal is currently $1000, if each and every person who followers me donated just 2 or 3 dollars we’d be well over our goal and he would have financial security to complete his move and a real chance to live the rest of his life securely.
This is not going away until the goal is met! if you don’t want to see it I guess you’d better donate!
Please help my friend Alex! <3
This guy is now completely homeless !!!! PLEASE give what you can I will love you forever if you do. If you want to donate but don’t have a credit card you can also send paypal to email@example.com.
