Just to keep you up to date, Dave Hon is giving relationship advice (you can read his original article here). Just so y’all know, this dandy catch won’t date a feminist.
By the way, this is Hon:
Now, as a feminist, I am not going to body shame or state anything about Hon’s physical appearance. But I will say this, I don’t think you have enough dating experience that is allowable of sound advice.
Also, as a powerful and sexually liberated feminist, I will state (and this is only based on what I am reading in this article), honestly, I don’t think you could handle being with me or any other feminist for that matter. (In oh so many ways.) I think it’s funny that you are under the impression that you have the option to date feminists, as if we would be interested in you. Again, I do not want to generalize, but I really think the reason “Why you won’t date a feminist” is simply because, they won’t date you. LBH, Hon Solo. I also enjoy enjoy the fact that you feel like you have many choices in the dating scene and have the ability to be particular.
So, I figured I have to respond to your ludicrous oped. So here it goes, your Hon-our.
Dear Dave Hon,
First of all, I appreciate that you do not blame women for “hating men.” I am going to assume you are under the impression that the definition of feminism is “man hater.” Well, it’s not. So get your shit straight before you stand against it. Who the hell are you? Paul McCartney chilling on NTV news saying he’s pissed about the seal hunt without a friggin clue ? If you are going to crap on something, know what it is.
I am a feminist. I am NOT a man hater. I am so far from a man hater, it hurts. I love men, I want men. I mean, I am not really interested in Ginger-haired bad -suited ignorant men, but I really like men. So, just stop. Just look up feminism in the dictionary and stop. STAP.
I believe in the equal rights of all genders. I am against all gender constructs and believe society created norms that limit both genders. And can I say, just one more time. I love men.
I have been told there is a wage gap eh? Stats don’t mean shit to you, but rather a huge ass conservative youtube video is what defines reality. Got it. What’s next Hon? Trusting vegetables and healing rocks to cure a degenerative disease or believing vaccines cause autism based on one falsified study? Who the heck are you to defy statistics? Settle down Hon Zimmer.
There isn’t a rape culture? REALLY? Have you read about Brock Turner? Have you heard of women being asked what they are wearing after they are raped? Have you been a woman walking down the street in broad daylight? Cause I find it hard for you to discount the experience of half the population.
Every single woman has experienced rape culture to some degree and you have the authority to discredit all of our experiences? Right on. Wow. Tell me more about how my interpretation of what happened to me and all other woman is falsified, because it really turns me on. Which is a shame, ‘cause you won’t date me.
I don’t think patriarchy is oppressing every facet of my life, as you so boldly state. Who told you that? Where did you get such blasphemy? Being a feminist and being outwardly aware of my situation in society, is simply my way of surviving and my way of hoping to achieve equal rights between genders. I think we have come a long way and I don’t think my feminist views defy EVERY facet of my life. Chill with the dramatics, Hon.
Your article read: “Because of the hateful culture, men are now demanding “consent texts” on campus before engaging in raunchy, post-party one night stands.”
FOR SHAME! What has the world come to that men now have to ask for consent? What in the good lord is happening to the sanctity of sex?
I am sorry Hon, but are you usually engaged in such passionate sexual episodes that you find it annoying to have to confirm consent beforehand? Is that your regular jam? An overwhelmingly hot sexual encounter that is tainted by the discussion of consent? You’re just rocking out the sweet sweet moves, that you don’t wanna compromise the passion with consent, you’re that suave eh?
I mean again, just based on your picture, it doesn’t seem like you are involved in that much raunchy one night stands, you seem more of a “eating a full bag of Doritos, jerking off to an avatar female elf in your mom’s basement” kinda of guy. Which, if that’s the case, the only person who needs consent in your sexual scenario is yourself and a sweaty sock with cheese finger stains, am I right?
No wonder you don’t get the point of consent. You have never had the opportunity to ask for it.
I love how you decided to be like “Guys, check out how the system is failing men too and only 14 percent of men are custodial parents.” Yeah, that’s injustice and guess what douche, feminists are fighting for those rights for men every day. We want everyone to be given fair rights across the board.
You stated: “People who are more loyal to their gender and not their significant other don’t make good partners.”
Dave. David, Davey Boy, come on. COME ON.
Who said I was more dedicated to my gender than my partner? That’s a bold unjustified statement. I am way more dedicated to a partner than I am to my gender. And if I do consider a male partner to be more fortunate than me, I am thinking “shit man, the love of my life is lucky that he doesn’t have to face crappy unfair battles like myself.” Also, I am a kick-ass partner, don’t question my abilities because I dig equal rights.
You stated that this cultural divide (which AGAIN is not the definition of feminism, femisnism wants equal opportunity and rights for everyone, buddy), is essentially the reason for marriage failure and women’s unhappiness.
I think marriage failure has increased because in the past we were forced to marry ginger headed idiots without a say and now we are deciding to do what is best for us as humans and I think women are unhappy because they realized that people like you STILL exist and you believe to know what is best for US.
I am glad you won’t date a feminist, Dave. I don’t think any feminist is knocking down doors and lining up to get in your pants any time soon, so I wouldn’t fret too much.
