Hello, my name is Brandon and I just came back from a month of USAF BMT after being medically discharged. Just to clear something up, on all of my online profiles I go by Velancious. I consider myself a fan of many game series to even count. The only notable fanbase I take direct part in is the brony fandom. If I had to pick a favorite pony, it would have to be Pinkie Pie, but even that pick is a very slight one. I love the Mane 6, but Pinkie seems to have the closest personality to me. My beliefs? I have none, but if you must classify me, I'm an agnostic-atheist. My personality type is INTJ.

0 comments by Velancious on Apr 18th, 2014

It's been a long time since I've done a blog. (And for good reason: I have a tendency to forget what I want to blog about) I usually try to avoid doing blogs on here because I'm required to do them elsewhere for my college classes, but one issue in particular I haven't discussed on here has interested me as of late.

This issue in particular is about the modern feminism that has swept the world. Now, I must warn you, the viewer, that this is more of a rant than anything. It's me giving my personal opinion on what I've seen of it, what I fear in it, and how I ultimately feel about it.

First and foremost, I believe this third wave of feminism is misguided under the notions of patriarchy. After talking to many feminists, and being involved in a round discussion in a "Women in History" class, I can safely confirm my fears that most people have no idea what patriarchy meant back then and what it is today. Feminists seem to describe patriarchy as this 'notion' that men must lead before women because men are superior to women. They are partly right, and I will explain why right now.

Patriarchy is simply the term for natural male dominance; the system where men control everything, including their women. Modern feminists usually try to explain why, and this tends to involve comments exclaiming how men are just pigs and women are morally superior to men. But this is exactly the same kind of attitude that created patriarchy in the same form as it existed in the 1900's.

Following the Civil War, it is noted how women were still seen 'in their place' at home and guys were out doing manly shit...like riding horses and joining the army...that kind of stuff. The common idea of the times was that men were physically dominant and that women were morally dominant. This system of differences between the genders is what we call the "gender roles". The gender roles are essentially what the patriarchy has developed into.

For a good example on the gender roles nowadays, look at how men are still pushed towards joining the military and 'getting laid' early on, while girls are still pushed to being virgins until married and investing as mothers or in child care. Hell, when I told my parents I thought about being a medic in the Airforce, they laughed and asked why I would want to be a medic, as that was a "women's job".

It's interesting then to note that feminism back then tried to fight the gender roles by proving women were strong and smart enough to vote, yet nowadays feminism has been generally ignoring the gender roles for the most part, or focusing solely on the women's side of the gender roles. This, to me, is a complete aberration of equality, as by focusing solely on women's issues, you ignore the men's side.

It doesn't take long to see then why anyone who admires true equality has been outright criticizing the new feminist movement for being hypocrites. If the patriarchy is real by how modern feminists describe it as, then why does it limit and hurt men who leave their 'desired role' in society?

A perfect example of how the gender roles work nowadays is what I call the virgin divide. Men, being thought of and stereotyped as sexually deviant, are considered weird in a bad way if they do not have sex before marriage. My parents actually ENCOURAGED me to lose my virginity to a random girl because they wanted me to be 'normal'. Women, on the other hand, are thought of as sexually pure, so if they have sex before marriage and do other activities related to "whoring around", they are thought of negatively. A guy in that situation would be considered a "player".

And don't even get me to mention the the ridiculous double standards against certain sexes, like how men are looked down upon for being into feminine things but society nowadays seems to not care about women getting into masculine things, like sports or video games. (In fact, in many ways it is sought after...like a girl gamer)

I guess in the end, I just hate that they keep talking about how there is so much hate against women when the real enemy is standing right in front of them. The gender roles should be feminism's primary elimination target if they want 'true equality' between the sexes.

I could go on with dozens of unfair sex imbalances, especially double standard cases feminism is avoiding talking about but it is 4:40 AM over here and I am starting to black out while typing this. If you want to debate with me I am totally open for that.

you made a good point in your blog recently, people don't do good things, because its in there nature to do what is best for them alone. we are all pretty much animals with higher intellect, the thing that infact does seperate us from a common beast. is that our intellectual capacity and awareness of our surroundings, gives us the chance to do what is right, we can choose to do whats right or whats wrong. most of us choose to do what is wrong. but there is that small margin of people who do what is right, not because it will benifit them later but because, it is simply the right thing to do. i once thought like you did. like all humans are easy to compare when it comes down to they're moral codes. but i was shown that i was wrong. were not all the same. im not saying your wrong, yes there some terrible people in this world, and most people in this world are terrible. but we cannot subject the whole human race to the undesirables. trust me i made that mistake long ago. and now, it is a thing i only wish i could forget.

Oh, just so you know I wasn't trying to throw every human being in with the stereotype of humanity being bad. I know there's good people out there who just want the best of it and strive to make it better.

I was pointing out that we got ourselves SCREWED by lying to ourselves about our true nature, and instead of trying to improve it; the majority just run around acting like they're so morally superior to everyone else when it's obvious they are all jumping on the biggest bandwagon humanity ever created (religion is 2nd place here). An example could be how there's so many people now FERVENTLY against the crime of rape that you can't even joke about it, yet to an worse issue like murder, jokes of it are made all the time about it.

What about Amanda Todd? That's an obvious bandwagon jump. Poor girl killed herself, but what about the many others that also have and didn't get fan followings? Zip. Anyone else also notice how society seems to care about bully victims only until after they've killed themselves? And all the while everyone seems to forget thousands of people die across the world every day...

When it comes to religion, I understand people have good intentions but what do you honestly think helps more people in a realistic scenario: a religious text or food/water?

There's a side to humanity that is GOOD, but it needs to come out and DO something. You know what happened to 99% of the species that existed before us on this planet? They go extinct. It doesn't help that the average IQ of humans seems to be dropping. Let's hope this at least doesn't lead to an Idiocracy (remember that movie)?
