Some examples of how “men’s rights activists” are threatening and intimidating feminists. There is absolutely no justification for this kind of behavior, and I urge all anti-feminist men (and anti-feminist others) to at the very least not stoop to the level of threatening atrocities or publishing someone’s personal information. I may not agree with your points of contention when it comes to the feminist movement, but that will never cause me to harm you or your family. AVFM and similar MRA groups need to be stopped, for the safety of society as a whole.

if you ever have to watch one american football game please watch the lions/eagles game going on right now. they’re playing in 7/8 inches of snow and they’re not allowed to clear the snow off the field
My uncle has been posting pictures since the start of the game guys you don’t understand this is hilarious
the lions fumbled six times in the first 18 minutes and are winning
I don’t ever watch football but this amuses me.
I see a lot of people arguing about how unfair it is to cast aspersions on Jeff Davis, or to write angry rants about him or about Teen Wolf, without taking into account his good intentions. After all, he wasn’t deliberately trying to hurt people, right? It’s not like he’s bad person or anything like that.
I’m going to offer a hypothetical.
Just for funsies.
Imagine the network had fired all the writers at the end of season 2 and replaced them with misogynist white supremacists, whose sole goal was to turn Teen Wolf into their own patriarchal, white cis utopia.
How do you think that would have gone? Hypothetically.
Imagine if they had a deliberate plan, written out. Comicbook villains always create really elaborate schemes for achieving their goals. Their backup plans have backups, amirite? It would probably look something like this:
- PHASE 1: Permanently write out as many of the minor/secondary female/POC characters as possible. Kill a few outright. Quietly shunt the rest off to the side. When fans started asking questions, say, “Oh those guys? Yeah, they died offscreen. Terrible story. So terrible I won’t bother telling it, but suffice it to say they’re not coming back.”
- PHASE 2: Take more entrenched, more central female/POC characters and make them increasingly unlikeable and one dimensional, so that hopefully the fans stop caring about them so much, making it easier to write them out of the story later on.
- PHASE 3: Beef up the white male quotient. Introduce a few more white male characters into the mix. Give them more and more screentime (which has the added side benefit of reducing the amount of screentime available for women/POC).
- PHASE 4: Write storylines geared toward making said white male cis characters more developed/complex/sympathetic. Redemption arcs up the wazoo. Bonus if female/POC characters get killed/disempowered in the process.
If I were a (hypothetical) racist, misogynist, monosexist bigot, and I were deliberately trying to turn a formerly moderately diverse show into my own personal white cis male utopia, this is how I would (hypothetically) go about it.
I mean, I think this is a pretty fucking solid (hypothetical) game plan right here.
But I’m so sure
That any resemblance Teen Wolf’s season 3a storyline might bear to my (hypothetical) scenario is coincidental. An accident. Nobody’s fault.
In fact, it would be unreasonable — and downright unfair — to blame or judge the (actual) writers for the (actual) execution of their (actual) writing choices without taking into account their
If you ever complain about a white character being made into a person of color, I’m not saying you’re racist, but I am shining a giant heat lamp on that thin ice you’re standing on.
