Josh Thomas talks about male suicide

I wonder how feminists will react to this

Probably ignore it then go back to making male tears mugs and gifs 

Actually this is a very common idea among feminists

It’s something feminists have been talking about for years it’s called toxic masculinity and it’s one of the common threads among the topic of ‘Patriarchy hurts men too’. In fact the first time I read about toxic masculinity was on a feminist blog.

If you actually read things feminists talk about instead of straw manning them you might know this but OH WELL

Toxic masculinity is real and is really a problem and all that, but the suicide statistics are pretty misleading. Women attempt suicide more often, but tend to use methods like overdose rather than firearms. Men attempt suicide less often but succeed more often. And instead of taking women’s attempts seriously, they’re often written off as cries for help.

Which is something I’ve never really understood, to be honest. If something is a cry for help, why would you go, “Oh, don’t worry about them, it’s just a cry for help,” rather than helping them? If I’m crying out for help, it’s because I need help!

I won’t preface or clarify any statement I make with “some men” instead of “men”.

It’s too many men, and it’s not enough men, but it’s always men.

I don’t need to explain or justify myself, because those people of quality I hope to reach know and understand who I am…

Gisella Perl was forced to work as a doctor in Auschwitz concentration camp during the holocaust.
She was ordered to report ever pregnant women do the physician Dr. Josef Mengele, who would then use the women for cruel experiments (e.g. vivisections) before killing them.
She saved hundreds of women by performing abortions on them before their pregnancy was discovered, without having access to basic medical supplies. She became known as the “Angel of Auschwitz”.
After being rescued from Bergen-Belsen concentration camp she tried to commit suicide, but survived, recovered and kept working as a gynecologist, delivering more than 3000 babies.

I want to nail this to the forehead of every anti-abortionist who uses the word “Holocaust” when talking about legal abortions.

Always, always, always remind pro-lifers how many more people would have died during the holocaust without access to abortion, and remind them ho they would have died.
Never let pro-lifers compare the victims of the holocaust to fetuses that have no concept of their own life or being.  It’s not equivalent and it’s gross.
Stop comparing abortion, or anything else, to the Holocaust.
Thanks.-  Ryan
