At first I though this was a joke

Don’t ignore this Tumblr

Yet they still do even when it’s right in their face.

This reminds me of how a friend of mine was abused by the mother of his child. She was mentally unstable and used to berate him constantly and would smack him in the head all the time. It really pissed me off. Then one night she threw hot coffee in his face and tried to stab him with a screwdriver. The cops hauled him off to jail because she made up a sob story that painted herself as the victim. 

Once he left her, he stayed with me and it was a nightmare. She stalked him and me. She would drive by my house obsessively at all hours of the day and night (her muffler made a weird sound so I know it was her). She started showing up at my job, showing up at the places I frequented around town, and filling up my voicemail with dead air. The cops were no help.

One day she got bold enough to talk her way into my home by conning my elderly grandmother, whom I was taking care of, while I was out. She went in my room and went through my stuff (creepy), then found him napping on the couch and attacked him. My grandmother witnessed the whole thing. He grabbed her by the arms, forced her out the front door, and locked it. The cops were called again. They said they’d go and ‘talk’ to her.

The next day we were watching a movie and there was a knock at the door. The police had come to arrest him. She filed a complaint against him and shown off some bruises on her arms from the altercation that she swore were completely unprovoked. My grandmother saw the whole thing since she was in the living room too and testified on his behalf. He still ended up serving jail time.
No one takes male domestic violence victims seriously. They only see males as perpetrators.

Tells people not to drive without their seat belts on. They do it anyway.

Tells people not to keep their cars unlocked due to possible theft.They do it anyway.
Tells people not to keep their homes unlocked due to possible theft. They do it anyway.
Tells women not to consume drugs or alcohol during pregnancy. They do it anyway.
Tells people not to abuse animals. They do it anyway.
Tells people not to abuse other people. They do it anyway.
Tells people not to eat meat too rare due to health risks. They do it anyway.
Tells people not to keep their guns where children can access them. They do it anyway.
Tells people not to steal. They do it anyway.
Tells people not to murder. They do it anyway.
How’s all that telling people not to do shit working out? I’m pretty sure those without a moral compass don’t give a fuck what you think they should or shouldn’t do.
WE ALSO LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT:
Tells men they can’t be the victims of sexual assault
Tells boys that when a woman rapes them its okay because they wanted it.
Tells men they deserve to be hit by women because they probably did something wrong.
Tells men that sacrificing his goals and aspirations for a woman is what “real men” do.
Tells men they aren’t allowed to have preferences on body because that’s sexist or body shaming.
Tells men that its their duty to protect women from danger even at the risk of their own lives because its what “real men” do.
Tells men they have privilege and so their problems don’t count.
WE ALSO LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT:
Has consistently told men that rape is wrong. Here is a list of some rape prevention messages over the years.
Has never told women not to rape men or boys yet it happens ALL THE TIME.
Does not tell women not to lie about rape even though it happens more than you think.
CONCLUSION: Some people do fucked up things because some people have no moral guidance and do not care if you tell them they are wrong. Blaming men for rape is not helping, it is only perpetuating the idea that only men rape, men can somehow stop rape, and women never lie about rape — all of which are false. Telling people not to do things does not work. Even the death penalty is not a deterrent from murder because people still kill each other in Texas and they have the highest rate of death row executions.
Believe it or not, the world is a scary place that will never be completely safe as long as people are free to make their own choices even at the risk of harming themselves. It is imperative that people learn how to protect themselves from becoming victims. I believe that women being told to be safe and protect themselves from violence or rape is purely a consideration for their well being that is not offensive. The fact that men are never told to be safe while they are three times more likely to be victims of homicide reinforces that society’s concerns are most definitely in favor of protecting women while men are simply disposable and not worthy of consideration at all for their safety and well being. Some may argue that because statistically men are the main perpetrators of violence against other men that it is only the fault of men but this only highlights the disposable attitude towards men because we don’t question nor do we as a society care how they got that way. This is shown to be absolutely true due to the lack of male services or support groups. In a recent study, it was found that men are not inherently violent and that more men equals less violence and more peace. This is a blow to the typical stereotype that men are violent in nature.
In ending this I want to bring attention to the fact that a female prison in Oklahoma had the highest rate of rape between inmates in the United States at 15.3%. Women are just as capable of rape as men are and the issue is not about gender but about fucked up people with no moral compass who, quite frankly, do not give a shit about your picket signs, your posters, or your blog posts telling them not to rape. Essentially, you are talking to a brick wall and throwing an entire gender under the bus while you do it.

i think you should watch this, and then reconsider your support of palestine, because you are falling right into the propaganda trap that the hamas has set up for ignorant americans like yourself. look up "Bill Maher and Conservative Guest Surprisingly Agree on Who's to Blame for Gaza Civilian Deaths"

I’m anti-Hamas, I’m anti-IDF, I’m anti-violence and anti-killing. I’m on no one’s side except the people that are dying and living in fear, whose lives are flipped up-side-down right now. The scale tips to suggest Gaza is suffering from this violence more than any, and I am supporting those suffering. Perhaps you should reconsider pulling “you’re falling for propaganda” directly preceding citing Bill Maher.

There are pictures of dead Palestinian children coming in in avalanches, you can’t tell me it’s “just propaganda.” Video clips of grieving mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, children, grandparents.. things television won’t even air. The reach and scale of the terror is unnerving. 

Feel inspired by your own existence.
