#YesAll___ Discussion
Posted 6/3/14 , edited 6/8/14
Is there a ‪#‎YesAllMen‬ trend going around to discuss male issues and double standards in society? If there is, I would very much like to show my support for it.

Same goes for #YesAllLGBT #YesAll*insert gender, race, class, nationality, religion, whathaveyou*

Because I would very much like to find proof that there are other genders, "races," religions, and classes of people who also have issues that must be discussed and resolved.

why can't I be paid more if I am either more qualified or negotiate to be paid more without receiving the unjust scorn of the opposite gender? #YesAllMen


Don't blame me for asking for more money.

Australia allows 2 weeks at national minimum wage and up to 3 weeks unpaid. Which is pretty progressive, in U.S their is no requirement for any paid leave for a new baby, it's up to the state or employer.

My friend's employer gave him a month of paternity leave paid.

#YesAllMen was a total joke.

I agree that there are serious sufferages across the board no matter what your race, gender, or orientation. That being said, YES some groups suffer quite a bit more than others. If I go into a predominantly black neighborhood, I'll likely get picked out of a crowd & be harassed for being a white girl. I still have SO MUCH MORE privilege over that group than I have been oppressed.

So yeah, #yesallmen can whine about how they 'have to' pay for dates (which, by the way, many women don't believe or enforce), but men are NOT some seriously oppressed group that need to be coddled.

It was especially disgusting to see this hashtag full of white, straight men. Straight white men are literally the top of the pyramid. So boo-hoo, you had to open the car door to impress a girl or buy her dinner before she even considered going home with you.

Try spending every day being oppressed for your gender & being treated as a lesser species & then come talk to me.

Why is it sexist to slap a girl when she hits you but empowering when a girl kicks a guy in the balls when he says something she doesn't agree with. #Yesallmen

It's all a moot point, once women figure out how to reliably coax a female stem cell into a healthy sperm cell all men are doomed anyway.
