Adventures in the life of a quiet fanboy named Dirk. Sometimes I like to make art (watercolors or oil pastels) which I'll post here, but mostly this blog is for reblogging stuff I think is cool/funny/interesting, and the occasional essay about the things I think about.

Post

I’m really getting sick of having a swollen face and pinky finger. It’s only been a day and I’m ready for this to be over with. When my leg got stung it was about a week or so before I finally started to get better. I really hope that this doesn’t take that long DX

Let me introduce you to the University of Toronto protest that happened in 2012.  Warren Farrell was holding a lecture discussing men’s rights, men’s issues and problems that they face in society and this is what happened.
Feminist activists embodied the exact opposite of peaceful protest and had to be forced back by a multitude of police because they were physically barring the entrance to the campus building, keeping many from entering to listen to the lecture.
Later on the fire alarm was pulled without cause, an act which is punishable by law.  Curiously though, no charges were ever filed and no investigation was put toward finding out who pulled the alarm to disrupt this lecture.  
This is what happens when people who are concerned about male DV victims talk.  This is what happens when men try to find their own space to work out how to handle the problems they face in society.  Left and right, you have these self-righteous people who are framing the narrative to make it look as though they’re preemptively silencing hate speech, rather than silencing a man’s freedom of speech.
If you want people to stop bringing up male victims in the same conversation talking about female victims, stop silencing the people who are trying to talk about male victims on their own time.  Thank you.

PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE THIS.

This Thursday, Scotland votes for its independence.

The BBC is trying to report that Yes to Independence is losing. They’re using photos to imply our gatherings are tiny and insignificantΒ instead of the many photos like those above. They’re reporting that an anti-independence march by the Orange Order (think the KKK with more British flags) was a peaceful pro-union family march. They have been caught editing clips to discredit our First Minister.

There is a protest outside BBC headquarters right now. They are claiming there are a maximum of 350 protesters.

Watch for yourself.Β There are far more people outside their offices right now and they are being ignored and misreported.

We need to be seen. The only way we’ve been able to disseminate accurate information has been through social media. The media we rely on to spread unbiased information is lying to us, trying to suppress us.

PLEASE SHARE. PLEASE TALK ABOUT THIS. WE NEED OUR VOICES TO BE HEARD.

this website is very american-centric. please, we need to be heard. please pay attention.

this is a whole country’s FUTURE.
