...the only time I've ever heard "boys will boys" in the real world is from mothers who refuse to parent their fűcking spawn
@ptitty1231, damb straight, only shïtty parents say that.
@Hot Coffee, absolutely.
*remember own mother saying it.
God damn it...
@ThePandaPool , d’oh
@ptitty1231, I’ve only heard it used when boys are rough with each other or something common for boys. I’ve never heard it used in a truly negative way. It’s like if a teenager gets caught with a dirty magazine, “boys will boys”. Two kids got into a fight “boys will be boys”. It’s more of just an understanding of how some boys act. It’s not a complete excuse for the behavior, but it is an understanding viewpoint. I do not believe it should ever be used in a truly bad situation like if a group of boys sexual harass a girl. Then I don’t think it is appropriate or accurate.
@Raki Zaki, sadly it is used to describe boys that sexually harass, a few years ago a prosecutor allegedly used the term as an excuse when he gave a boy a light sentence for sexually assuslting a five year old girl. Boys will be boys is a cute saying when it means boys will be a little rough or get a little dirty, but a lot of people ruined the term when they started saying teenagers can't control themselves around girls, boys will be boys.
Friendly reminder that women can be toxic too. People are toxic but the toxicity manifests slightly different in either sex as a rule of thumb. Beating your significant other. Typically a man being toxic. Marrying someone just to divorce them for money or a green card. Typically a woman being toxic. Both sexes are capable of doing horrible things to each other.
@Cl3v3rN1ckn4me, funny thing you mentioned green card... as a foreigner... I see this waaaaaay too often
@Cl3v3rN1ckn4me, and yet it’s statistically higher for the woman to beat her husband than a man to his wife. It’s just one isn’t frowned upon by feminists.
@The Pun Shielder, honestly, this is true. My buddy’s wife hits him constantly. He tells her to quit and she calls him a pvššÿ and insists it doesn’t hurt because he outweighs her by 120 lbs. The problem with masculinity is that women have every opportunity to physically, mentally, and emotionally abuse men and be rewarded for it.
The problem with today’s feminists is that they do not strive to stand on equal ground as men, they wish to dominate men. Until we can all turn our backs on the atrocities of the past and strive to proceed together, we’re going to continue to have problems.
I suggest everyone act like me, hate everyone else equally and demand to be left the fvçk alone. Don’t like that outlook? Eat sjït.
@XiozTaschez, the last part of your comment remind me of Slayer's song Disciple "I hate everyone equally" lol
@love muscle man, just me and my world of enemies, man.
@XiozTaschez, Dude!!! FVCKING SLAYEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRR!!!!!
@Cl3v3rN1ckn4me, and with your point, isnt it great that they used Johnny Depp as the picture for the meme with how events unfolded with his divorce?
@XiozTaschez, I like you. You'll do well here.
@ThePandaPool , because of my former statement I am contractually obligated to say that I hate you, because you are part of everyone. Your adoration is noted for when I attain god-like powers and decide to rain cleansing fire upon this Earth.
@The Pun Shielder, my last call on the ambulance was for just that. Woman and her new bf cam to her exactly in the middle of the night and beat him up.
I was worried he might have a concussion or head injury, but he had no resources to take care of his kids. So he refused to go...
No shelters either fro him to go to, he had to barricade the door that was busted down....and at least a shelter could check up on him ever 30 minutes to morning to make sure he was still acting normally (as some small brain bleeds can take time to develop)
He had absolutely no resources, yet if he was a woman would have had all kinds of shelter and resources...
Truly despicable state of society.
@ThePandaPool , I wonder if intentional or not?
@phalcon , I do too, but accidentally awesome is still awesome.
@Cl3v3rN1ckn4me, Friendly reminder that calling out toxic masculinity isn't the same as ignoring toxic femininity.
@XiozTaschez, I don't think his wife's a feminist. Any non-strawman feminist would encourage your friend to go seek help and perhaps legal counsel.
@Jdrawer, please kindly refer to the last sentence of my first post.
@The Pun Shielder, do you have a credible source for that claim
@Cl3v3rN1ckn4me, I disagree with 'men and women act differently as a rule of thumb to toxicity', because that feels true only between particular groups within men and women
@Jdrawer, you can look at many now archived tweets posts and articles from the initial wave or even when Depp filed the lawsuit but before depositions and evidence where presented and see dozens of verified and prominent feminists reactions. There was also hundreds of thousands more from self-proclaimed feminists but those are harder to verify and sort so are better used as supporting data than absolute. The problem with online (and as recently emerged Facebook knew and explicitly allowed it because rage drives interactions) is extremists get amplified and set the tone, which pushes the entire conversation more extreme as mob mentality settles in and people feel more comfortable or try to fit in by expressing extreme positions.
@Cl3v3rN1ckn4me, it can be worse for a dude with a toxic girlfriend as society just expects him to be a man and just take it but when he raises his voice in retaliation suddenly he’s the bad guy
@Cl3v3rN1ckn4me, it honestly cracks me up seeing the single downvote. So there is the pinnacle of being a simp “no way girls can’t be toxic” and there we have it
I’ll take spot the femtard for 300, Alex
Ray, here it is:
Was it a man or a woman who invented the first tampon with an applicator in 1918?
@seeUpee, Who is Earle?
@Ray213, I’ll take “b!tches be crazy” for 300 as well
@Ray213, please call out the downvotes. I want to know who the sjw feminazis are.
@big freedom, just for you big guy, Thone09, Possible Paradox, kittenmaster12, Hoenheim, FoodEatsl, and another commenter who got sore at an internet joke
Patriarchy litterally means anything they want it to. Its impossible to debunk it because theres no actrual meaning to it.
@CocoasBro, as a white cis hereto male, I am the patriarchy and I will not let you take that away from me.
Looks like Shah has that one friend who told her that saying “I’m a brainwashed sexist bigot”, in a girl accent, means “I’m so woke.” Would be neat to see some of her friend’s other translations.
We’ve all had that one friend.
You’re over thinking it
Hail the patriarchy! Long live the patriarchy!
I really don’t get modern day feminists. Like I get we as a society need to improve, but that’s across the board. At this point men and women are equal in the amount of damage they can do to each other. Destroying careers and destroying lives plenty of trash on both sides. No need pretending otherwise
@Natural Sarcasm , Women simply refuse to acknowledge how systematically horrific they are. And until they do, I’mma encourage men to be just as toxic as they can be.
So you think little boys are masculine, eh?
Why don’t you have a seat over there...
@A Deformed Penis, I don’t know what to applaud more, the Chris Hansen reference or your username.
Feminists will be feminists.
It’s just pronounced boys will be boys it’s worked for a long time y do we have to complicate things
I heard it growing up but it was only really used when I hurt myself doing something dumb. Jumping off something, climbing something, etc
I agree 'boys will be boys' can lead to people defending patriarchy, but it can also try to explain the position, of a group that is not necessarily yours, where no harm is committed during an activity that not everyone would partake in. It tries to explain away parts one cannot necessarily understand of an activity, by separating the boys from you, within an innocent context.
The problem for me, is that many feminists cannot recognise the innocent context once they have seen a possible patriarchal connection, meaning they want to eradicate concepts rather than commit meaningful action towards growth.
Girls will be girls 🤷🏻♂️
@junkstarbuilds, you mean women will systematically ruin a guys life either by claiming he violated her or by enticing him with her genital magic so she can leech every hard earned penny off of him and then threaten to leave with that money and his kids at any sign of disloyalty?
Yeah, I agree.
maybe stop dressing like a Sluut shah
Go make me a sandwich woman
I've not personally heard boys will be boys said in response to harassment. People give it a pass when it shouldn't be, but that phrase in particular
I think it’s pronounced “fourth wave feminism”
