How #notallmen makes men look worse, not better

1. Women KNOW that most men do not commit violence against women. They are fully aware that 95% of men are not rapists. These numbers are readily available, you aren’t telling anyone anything new.

2. 100%-95%=5%=1 in 20. How many men do you encounter in a day? Hundreds? Thousands in a big city or busy college campus? Now imagine that 1 of every 20 of them would sexually assault you given the opportunity. That is what #YesAllWomen have to deal with. Not acknowledging this makes men appear ignorant, without empathy, and incapable of basic math.

3. Are you seriously going to congratulate yourself on not being a rapist? YOU’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE, YOU IGNORANT FUCK. Would you like a fucking cookie? The fact that men are congratulating themselves on not committing the most heinous crime known to mankind is exactly why the #YesAllWomen movement is necessary.

Please stop with #notallmen. It is embarrassing to men as a gender and it makes you a part of the problem, not a part of the solution.

True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.

Meanwhile, the college students were awarded $30,000 each by the University in their lawsuit. Yes, you read that right. Perpetrator: $38K, Victims: $30K.
