***URGENT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT***

Grindr, a popular app for gay men, now carries an urgent warning for users in Egypt. According to many sources, Egyptian authorities are posing as LGBT people on various social media sites to identify and arrest homosexual people. The app is urging users in the region to proceed with extreme caution, especially when identifying themselves or arranging meetings/hookups. While so far the focus seems to be on gay men, all LGBT people in the area should be cautious. Reports show that Egyptian police have carried out violent raids on private homes which lead to the arrests of several gay men. These men were then subjected to disturbing medical “exams.” Police also raided an LGBT party last year, violently arresting many and sentencing them to up to 12 years hard labour. While homosexuality is not illegal in Egypt, athorities are using sexual deviance, debauchery and insulting public morals as terms for the crackdown. Many claim this fresh attack on the LGBT community is lead by President Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi who wishes for his country to be more Islamic.

For all of my LGBT friends here on tumblr, please be extremely careful as this situation develops. Remember to clear your search history, use private browsing if possible, and be extremely cautious with who you talk to online.

Feminism has a habit of encouraging self-loathing and misanthropy.

Just something I’ve noticed made up noticed.

fixed that for you

Your username automatically discredits your opinion on feminism. Come back when you’re not 12. :^)

I’m 40 years old, not that it matters, since you’re not actually the gatekeeper of all things feminism. And your thing that you “noticed” is, as I said, made up, either because you don’t know what feminism is, or because you deliberately misrepresent it.

Either way, it’s a nice tie-in to the fact that you seem to think misandry is a real thing that causes oppression.

Then stop acting like a 12-year old.

He haven’t made anything up, he stated the fact - modern feminism is mostly baby crying and self-loathing of spoiled and privileged. Sorry honey, you’d be destroyed in any factual discussion.

Adding on to this: when exactly did I say misandry causes oppression? Could it be that you’re putting words into my mouth in a vain attempt to easily discredit it?

I have studied and know exactly what feminism is, and I can’t ignore my (and many many other’s) observations. You’d be more useful addressing why your movement looks completely ridiculous under a critical lens.

Already hearing about privilege and entitlement in my American Literature class. If, by the end of Christmas, I start spouting liberal type shit I’ve gone native and will need to be put down.
