I’m done answering these feminism questions on my art blog, however, the discussion can continue on my main blog theradberryfox.tumblr.com

Sorry for the non-art stuff, everyone!

Answer
  • Question: as for "men and women are different"...we are, in some ways, but not enough that we should be confined to such narrow gender roles. can you not see that such limiting roles are damaging for men and women? it's not just a legal thing, it's that culturally we are taught from a young age that "this is a girl thing" and "this is a boy thing" so girls are taught to be submissive and "nurturing" while boys are taught to show no emotion but aggression and anger (cry? you're "gay.") - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    While these gender roles can be harmful if imposed too forcefully, these exist for a reason. These roles arise from the natural histories of humanity and what people generally still act like. There may be some that disregard this trend, and that’s fine, but these standards exist for a legitimate reason.

    Men generally suppress their own emotions. My boyfriend does it and he’s one of the most expressive people I know. They do this because, historically, the men went to war or out hunting and those two settings do not do well for the emotional.

    On the other hand, women are taught to be nurturing and explore their emotions because, again traditionally, they were the ones that raised the children.. Not only did they raise them, they gave birth to them, and so women were taken special care of and sheltered from the horrors of the ancient world.

    The world isn’t like that anymore (in most places) and so it’s obvious that a woman can make her own path in this day and age.

    These so-called “gender-roles” exist because these are the natural states of humanity. Obviously there are exceptions, gay and transgender, but these are fractions of the population.

    Men and women are treated the exact same under the law. So why is it bad that the genders are different? Yes, very different. Not everyone is the same. Wanting everyone to be the exact same is what some call “social marxism”. That’s not something I’m really a fan of.

  • Question: "I really don’t see how it’s still necessary in first world countries." how about the pay gap, the fact that women are still paid less on average for the same work? how about the fact that women are less likely to be hired, even with an identical resume? this is in part because it's assumed that all women want and will eventually have children, and would thus have to take time off--how about the assumption that women should be the sole caregivers for children? 1/1 - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    If you’re going to send me an ask just to start an argument, please make sure it’s an argument that hasn’t already been discredited.

    The wage gap just isn’t true; I’m sorry, it’s not. Men and Women are paid the exact same for the exact same qualifications, and this is because of the equal pay act of 1963.

    You also say that women aren’t respected in society? How so? Rape culture? Rape statistics? Both have also been discredited.

    It’s good that you bring up men’s issues, something a lot of feminists seem unwilling to do, but if you are for equal rights, why call yourself a feminist? Why do you need that label at all? Any sane human being can see that men and women can be equal. It’s just when feminists over-analyze these things that they perceive discrimination and misogyny.

    You could do the same with men. Is it fair that on a sinking ship, it’s women and children first? Does that mean men are disposable? Does that mean society doesn’t care about men? Of course not.

    Men and women may be treated differently and held to different standards, but that’s only because men and women are different!

  • Question: jfc man. why do you hate feminists so much. i like your art but you are honestly making it hard to follow you. - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    I don’t hate feminists. I disagree with feminism. Feminism was absolutely necessary in history but , as a woman in this day and age, I really don’t see how it’s still necessary in first world countries. I post a lot of anti-feminist arguments on my main blog(but sometimes my phone is a little shit and posts stuff to this blog.) because I use that to express my opinions, which usually aren’t that strong, I just agree with and enjoy what the person had to say. 

    Also I really don’t mean to post that stuff on this blog. I really want to keep things separated but sometimes I forgot to check the blog I was reblogging stuff to.

    And why does it matter so much if I accidentally reblogged a few things to this blog? Just why is it such a big deal? I mean if you like my art than that’s all that matters. Not whether I love or hate something.

It’s been forever since I’ve drawn something in this style and I still love it. Though I’m a little rusty at it, I think this came out pretty nice.

Also I named her Emily
