wait isn't "not all men" the same as saying "not all muslims"? and yet you guys still protect them

Short answer: no

Long answer: what the fuck who even are you what the fuck are you asking?? who are ‘you guys?’ who is ‘them’? Are you angry because a lot of feminists dislike ‘racism disguised as Islamophobia poorly disguised as concern over terrorists despite the fact that most domestic terrorists are white’ and ALSO dislike it when people shove their noses into conversations about the experiences of women by insisting those conversations cater to the feelings men who weren’t even invited?? Because that’s not the same????? At all!! Would you like examples? A few weeks ago a friend of mine (Indian/South African) was given a ‘formal warning’ by police at a train station for ‘looking like a terrorist’ because he has black curly hair, a beard and was wearing a backpack. Another friend of mine had her veil ripped off and was chased down the street a year ago after the Lee Rigby murder while they yelled racial slurs at her. Want more? This is a fantastic resource, and it’s free! Know why there isn’t a word for when groups of angry feminists roam the streets in search of innocent men (and, much like violent Islamophobes, people that vaguely look like men) so they can beat them up and humiliate them and maybe even murder them and call it ‘justice’? There isn’t a word for it because it doesn’t fucking happen. We don’t really care that much about hurt feelings, contrary to popular belief, it’s more about preventing actual violence by working against a culture that promotes the attitudes that make rape and VAW and the general dehumanisation of marginalised groups acceptable. It may seem we’re talking about feelings when we say ‘please stop joking about rape’, but it’s much bigger than that. Comments like yours are profoundly unhelpful, as is the insistence that we include men in spaces that have been specifically carved out to discuss women’s issues. We may include men anyway, we often talk about how these things affect men, but we really, really don’t like this being the first thing people say when we bring up these issues. I know ‘not all men’, I have a partner who’s a man, I have five big brothers and a number of very close friends who are men, I’m sick of being told ‘not all men!!’ like it’s a thing I don’t know, as if I haven’t had rich and varied representations of men as presidents and prime ministers and protagonists and heroes and villains and lovers and saviours and all-round human beings my entire fucking life as oppose to ‘women as human beings’ which is something I had to figure out for myself. Ask a member of the EDL or BNP or Stormfront or the National Front or the Met Police or any of the many racist, fascist, openly Islamophobic organisations in the UK alone what they think about ‘all Muslims’ and watch what happens. It’s not the same. It’s just not.

Firstly this is an intellectual and moral debate for intellectual people Secondly, it was Britain's to give away (the British empire conquered it centuries ago). Thirdly, Hamas are not only anti-Zionist, but anti-Semitic, there is no justification for a group who result to such violence.Look at Hamas's charter and manifesto, look at how this current conflict started, look at how israelis support Palestinians, even through times of war and like i said before look at the way you debate and don't t

talk like a prostitute who was brought up by monkeys. Also, there is no ethnic cleansing, hence there are mosques all over israel and gaza and the muslims have the dome on the rock in jerusalem. There is no ethnocracy, the Israeli Governent support muslim arabs with benefits and everything, they cant control the way the Gazan Government (hamas) run their strip of land.How can you say all of this when at the same time as israel entering and bombing Gaza, they are sending in food, clothing and medicine.You may be palestinian, but you onnly have a shit time because you are oppressed by Hamas, not Israel

Apparently I talk like a “prostitute who was brought up by monkeys”.

Usually as a rule, when someone needs to bring up that they are ~intellectual~, assume the opposite. Same with ~rationality and logic~.

I was going to respond to these, since you apparently have an allergy to history, but I think it’s pointless.

You have these talking points, and you’re sticking to them. It’s clear you don’t know what you’re talking about from the way you phrase your questions and arguments.

Apparently having a mosque means there is no ethnic cleansing, and Israel magically conjured a Jewish majority through the power of waffles, apparently.

But it’s fine really, time and history will prove you wrong. We’re not going anywhere, as much as you’d love to see that.

At least you just earned your cheque from the ministry of propaganda, eh?

Mysterious 500 Million-Year-Old Ocean Predators Could Be the Ancestors of Spiders

by Annalee Newitz

Anomalocarids are one of the oldest families of animals on Earth, and they looked like nightmarish sea scorpions. But a new fossil discovery actually contains traces of their brain structure — and amazingly, their half-billion-year-old brains look a lot like an arachnid’s.

Though some anomalocarids may have been as big as 7 feet long, these newly-discovered specimens are closer to the size of today’s arachnids. The critters you see fossilized below are about 8 cm long. Still, they look pretty insane — especially when you consider that their segmented heads are so similar to what we’d see in an arachnid today. A team of paleontologists led by Peiyun Cong found the three gorgeously-preserved anomalocarid fossils in Yunnan Province, and described them today in Nature

Isn’t amazing how people don’t give a shit about misogyny until they can accuse muslims of it in order to justify their islamaphobia?
