Survey of /r/mensrights turns up pretty much exactly what you’d expect.
White, male, 17-20 years-old, and disconnected from reality.
that’s how you make armor for women, no bullshit boob cups.
Boob cups must be the most uncomfortable things on earth… What the hell are you supposed to do when one of your boobs slips out? Let’s say you inhale or move your chest somehow so your breasts get free from the cup and end up clipped on the edge?? You can’t even pull them like you can when your bra gets all screwed up! Like who wants to wear that while they’re fighting monsters and shit?

Anthony Mackie being the first black superhero (and making Bill O’Reilly uncomfortable) on Jimmy Fallon (x)
I am so happy that Anthony Mackie is a person that exists.
For anyone who’s going: “But what about Storm/Hancock/Frozone/War Machine etc etc?”: they’re referring to the fact that the character Falcon was the first African-American superhero* created (debuted in Captain America #177 in 1969). If you’ve watched the clip, you’ll notice that Mackie corrects Jimmy Fallon when he says first black superhero. This is because the first black superhero was Black Panther - debuted in Fantastic Four #52 in 1966 - whom lives in the fictive African country Wakanda, and is thus not a citizen of the USA.
(* = the word “superhero” is usually not used for hero characters that pre-date Superman, nor actually very often used outside the mainstream comic book companies aka DC Comics and Marvel Comics. This is why such characters as The Phantom, created in 1936 aka 2 years before Superman, and whom wears spandex and a mask and punches evil guys in the face, is not generally dubbed a super hero. Anyway, the point of this asterisk is that I have no idea how many fictional, non-“super” hero characters there were of African decent before 1966)
so how about a black Steve Rogers?
As amazing as this would be, it just historically would not have happened.
The 1940’s were pretty dang racist. The government wouldn’t have picked an African American man as their ultimate American soldier.
I’m gonna have to disagree with you on this one, Momi. In the 30s, we did send a super powered black man to Germany to fight the Nazis.
And he won.
His name: Jesse Owens.
1. Read more Marvel - there was a precursor to Captain America who was black and had the super solider serum. His name was Isaiah Bradley
and his grandson is the Young Avenger Eli Bradley who (eventually) got a blood transfusion and his powers.
2. Read more history. There’s a lot that mainstream popular culture just won’t tell you about the hidden heroes, from female warriors right up to modern day soldiers who aren’t officially recognised by the “history books” so to speak.
Of course, the majority of the responding tweets were from men denying the idea that there’s any sexism in the tech industries, saying that women’s individual stories and all the statistics about low female-to-male ratios and high occurrences of harassment are all biased or exaggerated, or else admitting that yeah, all that’s true, but women just need to be patient and wait for things to get better, someday, somehow, without any need for anyone to acknowledge that it’s a problem, much less do anything about it.

When I was in Ninth Grade, I won a thing.
That thing, in particular, was a thirty dollar Barnes & Noble gift certificate. I was still too young for a part-time job, so I didn’t have this kind of spending cash on me, ever. I felt like a god.
Drunk with power,…
Interesting look at why this trope (and probably maby others like it) exist.
Feminist-a person who supports feminism.
Feminism-the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.
A great scene from ABC’s short-lived drama Commander in Chief starring Geena Davis.
"The cyber mob that is still attacking Sarkeesian and Park is the virtual embodiment of patriarchy’s crowdsourced police; we should stop treating it like the weather — uncontrollable, if predictable; to be endured, not altered. To simply slough off responsibility and say, as some have, that “other” people, not “Colbert fans,” are attacking Park is to genuflect to the crowd and deny your own moral agency even as you attempt to demand an outspoken woman of color embody it for you."
