@mardiroos @_ampersand @dayglochainsaw @thatcosmonaut imagine I wipe my hands on your shirt to dry my hands. I do it everyday. Eventually, one day, you convince me to start using a hand towel instead.

@mardiroos @_ampersand @dayglochainsaw @thatcosmonaut the flaw with this take is, life isn't a zero sum game. Deconstructing patriarchy isn't going to create new emotional strife for men -- it's going to unburden women. That strife isn't some immutable quantity fated to persist in the universe.
Mens lives will change, but they literally *will* be better. Anyone who says otherwise is just nostalgic for manpain tbh.
@Secondary_world calling the working class lazy is some bougie bullshit. I don't care what your mind does, but this is a shitty ass take.
