James Madison University joined the ever-growing list of U.S. colleges that have grossly mishandled sexual assault and rape cases last week when a young woman claimed that the school punished the three men who assaulted her by expelling them — after graduation.
Jon Stewart echoed the perplexed outrage of many on The Daily Show last night when he asked, “Wait a minute, ‘expelled upon graduation?’ Isn’t that… graduation? … What the fuck? … Clearly, universities are not making their campuses safe for women.”

Feminism really is just the fight for total equality between men and women and fights for the rights of LGBTQ as well as minorities. It recognizes sexist stereotypes as well as male privilege. I could get much more in depth if you’d like, but if you’re interested maybe try reading a book related to feminism to get a better idea on it? I highly recommend Bell Hook’s book called “Feminism is for Everybody: Passionate Politics.”
Anonymous said: No your being stupid and deceived. Feminism is not about equal rights for all. If so it would not have the prefix "fem". "If you're fighting for equality, and you pick a side, you're not fighting for equality" you're only fighting for the elevation of one gender. How about calling it humanism so men are not left out because women are not the only people oppressed in this word? Feminists use anything to back their pointless arguments. 40% of domestic violence victims are men.
Feminism fights for both genders and recognizes women are not the only one’s oppressed. Women possess a huge history of oppression- whether this be us not being recognized as HUMANS until a bit over 100 years ago, not having the ability to vote, work, etc. Not only that, women and young girls in other countries continue to struggle with these basic human rights and are treated as sexual property- tortured, raped, etc. In the US alone girls aged 16-19 are 4 times more likely than the general population to be victims of rape. 1 out of every 5 American women have been victims of an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime. Also, in regards to the point you made about domestic violence it could have to do with the fact that women are less likely to report incidences due to fear- and I’m not sure where you got that stat anyway; in the US every 9 seconds a woman is assaulted or beaten. Domestic violence is also the leading cause of injury to women. It is ignorant to ignore the rest of the world as well and the fact that around the world, at least 1 in every 3 women has been beaten, raped or abused during their lifetime. So maybe it’s not me who is the one being “stupid and deceived” ;) (Ps. it is you’re, not your).

Is it because they never got the attention of men or because men are stealing their crushes that they start praying at the unholy altar of modern feminism? Can you post a picture of yourself as well? I bet you look butt ugly. Thank you for reading. Have a lovely day.
Most ridiculous ask I have ever received.
