No, no and no. REBLOG this please, this shouldn’t be allowed and we need to spread the word to everybody about this injustice!

"But womenz are so oppressed! "
You realize that he probably instigated her? People dont just do these things. You just like to hear the one side of the story that you want to.
And if a woman instigated a man who then glasses her in the face? You’d be singing a different song then.
You’re just throwing in probably. This is exactly what I saw people do over Michael Brown being murdered. They just go “Oh, he must’ve attacked the cop.” or “Oh, the cop must’ve been trying to defend himself!” Even though there was seriously nothing suggesting that, and we later had mountains of evidence showing it was cold blooded murder.
No, I don’t know the reason she did that. Maybe he did attack her, maybe he didn’t. I’m not going to just assume anything though. Stop looking at this as a way to shoot people down, and look at it through facts.
Edit: Oh shit, didn’t see that first comment. Also, fuck you anti-feminist-rayquaza. This doesn’t eliminate the fact that women are more oppressed than men in every way.
This woman also had 17 previous convictions of assault. That means this is the 18th time she has physically assaulted someone. The majority of human beings on this planet, regardless of gender identity, will likely go through their entire lives without even accumulating ONE.
Funny how the people who claim to be against “victim-blaming” are the first ones to do it to anyone that doesn’t fit their narrow criteria of what it means to be a victim. They’re also quick to hide behind a little of that “patriarchy” when it’s convenient for them to do so. If it works in their favor, they’re all for those outdated gender roles that they claim to be trying so hard to disassemble. If today’s excuse for “feminism” was truly about gender equality, then they would suck it up, and admit that there’s more to that term than just money and “privilege” (not even getting into the fact that women are already a lot more privileged in this country than they’d care to admit). There’s also the matter of accepting the same level of punishment for committing the same crimes. Women in general have gotten away with some pretty goddamn horrifying shit simply because of their gender. People will fall all over themselves trying to excuse when a woman commits assault or cold-blooded murder, because we’re still stuck in this obsolete notion that women aren’t as capable of wrongdoing as men. More women commit child abuse than men (and don’t give me any of that shit about “But women are usually the ones taking care of the kids!”, because THAT ISN’T AN EXCUSE, NOR JUSTIFICATION, FOR HARMING OR KILLING THEM). Children are more likely to be killed by their mothers than their fathers, and when it comes to the murder of spouses, 41% of the killers are women.
Women are not perfect angels incapable of perpetrating evil, and the sooner that “feminists” finally admit this, the closer we’ll be to ACTUAL gender equality, and the closer we’ll be to seeing all human beings as equals, no matter HOW they identify.
hey newsflash this situation is not an example of the failings of feminism this is one example of WHY WE NEED FEMINISM because women should not be assumed to be so weak and inferior that even after assaulting people 18 times a woman can walk free because she still ISN’T SEEN AS A THREAT. misogyny hurts everybody, not just women. fucking duh women aren’t “perfect angels incapable of perpetrating evil.” feminism doesn’t ask you to think they are. feminism asks you to realize that WOMEN ARE PEOPLE JUST AS MUCH AS MEN ARE. (sorry for putting the daily mail on your dashes, guys.)
