I understand what you are trying to say but it doesn’t really make much sense because nobody today was a live during that. Also, white people aren’t the only ones who say racist stuff like that.

Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.

Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.

Please guys, if you could sign this it would mean a lot. I’ve been following this case for months and it’s infuriating how little this zoo and our goverment care about this poor guy. Let’s give him a happy ending.

Signed and reposted on facebook for polar bear fans, Cabin pressure fans, etc  Come on guys, his name is ARTURO (that’s ARTHUR!) and he’s 29! Polar Bears are BRILLIANT. And he deserves a better life!

Please keep reblogging this and if you haven’t signed, go and do it.

The Aftermath.

20,000 notes later—I have 250 messages waiting for me. I have about 300 disqus comments I haven’t looked at. My post is on reddit. Something called r/tumblrinaction. Men are saying that they are disappointed in me. That I drank the feminist Kool-aid. 

To all those men mad at me, I’d like to tell you a little story. Couch your anger for just a second. You can yell at me more when I am finished. 

My friend was at an evening establishment. A place with alcoholic beverages. A man approached and proclaimed his attraction to her physical features. He expressed a desire to court her. She informed him that she did not have interest in men. She enjoyed the company of other women. A detail she had no obligation to disclose, but she did anyway because she felt it would end the encounter. 

He refused to believe her. He thought it a ruse. 

As the night progressed he persisted, ignoring her sexuality and numerous rejections. 

My friend walked out to her car in a dark parking lot.

He followed.

He confronted her yet again and expressed his wishes to have her. 

Thankfully, he gave up and she made it home safely. 

But damn… how freakin’ scary is that?

Seriously. 

After hearing this story I searched through my brain trying to find a similar experience. Nothing came to mind. In my 32 years on this planet I have never experienced that kind of fear.

For her, that is one of many similar stories. 

Many of my friends have similar stories. And some of them were not as lucky in the end. 

Forget what rights you think you are not afforded. Forget that you are a “nice guy” who would never do that. This isn’t about that. This isn’t about you.

Why is it that she has so many of these stories and I have not one? 

You speak of equality. Why do my stories not equal hers? 

There is an issue here that needs to be addressed. It doesn’t matter if you are not one of these men. There are people in your man-o-sphere that need to know that this behavior is not acceptable. Perhaps you would be kind enough to let them know. 

Okay, resume the yelling. 

I can think of one very obvious, very glaring, very big, reason why you don’t have any experiences like that. I’m sure you can guess.

But whether or not *you* have any experiences like that is irrelevant. You are, after all, *one* person. Just because you have never experienced a fear like that, does not mean that no man has.

Your mistake is in thinking that your experience in life is in any way representative of all men. It is not. Men are raped and abused by partners and strangers just as often as women, but they are told to “suck it up”, that they’re supposed to enjoy sex no matter what, especially if it’s from a woman.

Men are killed every day, by their own hand or someone else’s, at rates substantially higher than that of women. Men are mugged and assaulted substantially more often than women.

If anyone has a right to be fearful for their safety on a regular basis in their every day life, it is men. But even then, men are told that they aren’t *allowed* to be afraid. Men have to be strong. Men have to be brave, stoic, show no emotion. All that “manly” bull shit.

And it gets them killed. Every. Single. Fucking. Day.

And then you, you and people like you, want to come out and act like men don’t have anything to fear? Like men don’t have a right to be upset when they are generalized as nothing but violent killers and rapists and abusers by people like you and by Feminists as well?

Fuck you, you white knight fuck nugget. You know nothing.

Sure, not all men, but consider this: what have men brought to this world with the exception of death and horror and pain?

Is this remotely serious? Should we even go into the mountains of dead men that enabled you to even write this shit? Men who died mining the coal, drilling the oil, or whatever whatever powers the plant than men died to build. Men that died clearing the land and building roads, infrastructure. Men who died working the refineries and plants that provided the plastics, silicons and precious metals that were used to build your computer. Dead men who paid with their lives for every last modern convenience you have.

What about men of science, who have wiped out diseases that used to kill and cripple thousands a year. Diseases like Polio. How about men who selflessly toss their lives aside in order to protect others, firefighters, police officers, who put their own lives at risk, and often lost them for your safety?

All these dead men you stand on, just so you can rain piss down on their corpses. Fuck You.

Men are weak.

I’ve seen women live in abusive situations, and in the morning, they get up, put on long sleeves and make up to hide the bruises, put on a smile to deflect the questions, and go to work.

I’ve seen women work in underpaid jobs (a landscaper makes a living wage, but a secretary doesn’t?! Bull fucking shit) with the threat of being “laid off” hanging over their heads, and they do it with a smile and make it seem easy while they’re being yelled at for things that are their boss’s fault. 

I’ve seen women want to complain about sexism and misogyny in the workplace, but not know how to without rocking the boat. Women are afraid of rocking the boat, because it could mean that they are out of work. How many men do you know are afraid of losing their job because their boss has asked them about the colour of their underwear?

I’ve seen women live in horrible situations because they can’t afford to move out. They can’t afford to get away from an awful parent or ex or current lover who treats them like a pet, who treats them like they are not a person and their wants and desires are irrelevant. 

I’ve seen men cry because they got laid off from work. I’ve seen men cry because they didn’t get laid. I’ve seen men cry because the job they had wasn’t paying them six figures. I’ve seen men cry because their car blew a tire. 

I have seen women smile the day after they were raped. I have seen women smile the day after they were beaten. I have seen women smile when their husbands swore at them and their children repeated it. I have seen women smile the day they were fired for “causing trouble” at work. I have seen women smile the day they were “laid off” for not sleeping with a co-worker. Or for sleeping with a co-worker.

Not all men, of course. But yes all women. Women are the strong ones. We are the ones who carry the family through tough times and the economy through recessions. We are the ones who stay when all others would leave, we are the ones who survive in places that others consider barren wastelands. 

The one thing I wish I could tell all of these women: You are stronger than he is. YOU DON’T NEED HIM. In the short term, maybe, but in the long term? You’re stronger than he is, and you’ll probably outlive him. So use him as a stepping stone, and move on. 

OP, fuck you right in the ear. You’ve seen all this from women? You know what I’ve seen from men?

I’ve seen men in abusive situations who know that there is no one who will help them, so they have to put on a smile and deflect questions. They learn how to cover up the marks.

I’ve seen men join the military because they can’t find a job or don’t make enough money to survive. They literally trade their safety and sanity for money. They don’t make it seem easy, but people like you just completely ignore them.

I’ve seen men complain about sexual harassment from women in the workplace and be told “oh what? you don’t like that? you gay or something?”

I’ve watched men live in abusive situations that they can’t leave because they have kids and they know if they leave, their ex would take those kids from them. So they take their beatings with dignity because they love their children and don’t want to lose them.

I’ve seen women cry because they failed a test. I’ve seen women cry because their car broke down. I’ve seen women cry because a certain man didn’t love them.

I’ve seen men smile while having to organize their young wife’s funeral because she had no one else to do it (at age 20, mind you). I’ve seen men smile the day after having to kill someone for our government. I’ve seen men smile after finding out their job has irreparably damaged their body, meaning they will always be in pain for the rest of their life until they die, far too early. I’ve seen men smile after being told they cannot see their children anymore.

Not all women and not all men. Strength isn’t gendered. There are strong, wonderful women AND men, and they are equally responsible for carrying the people they care for through tough times and struggles.

The one thing I’m telling you now: stop what you’re doing. Men commit suicide at three times the rate women do because of people like you, who do not appreciate strong people unless they are women. Men get abused by their partners and are ignored. Men HAVE to be strong, because no one cares about them. So shut the fuck up, you insufferable cunt.
