Because most feminists today that would bother weighing in on this issue are of the modern wave and aren't actually true feminists who are interested in equality, equity, and truth. They are mostly selfish, hateful, and spiteful with no regard for others welfare unless it brings some form of benefit to their own situation and self empowerment. It's absolutely appalling and shameful for how they only march and protest for selfish gain instead of real issues going on all over the world and even in their own "backyards".50
Feminists are on record saying that innocent men deserve to be treated the same as guilty men. That they can, "gain from the experience."
Imagine if what happened to Johnny Depp happened to your son, imagine hearing some woman say, "It's fine, even though he's innocent, he can gain from the experience of being blackballed and censured and having his character assassinated for months in the press."
This shit happens to millions of men across the world every day, all day long. MOST of them don't have multi-million dollar careers and a huge media presence as a famous actor and a giant fanbase of supporters. Most of them just get fucking destroyed and the world keeps right on spinning while they crawl off to go die in a hole somewhere. And nobody cares.
I care a little tiny itty-bitty bit about poor Johnny Depp, but I care a WHOLE LOT MORE for all the regular guys that have been put through the same fucking machine.21
Because they call themselves feminists. You remember what the people that led the civil rights movement called their movement? That's right, nothing like black lives matter, and that's because they wanted equality. What about the civil rights movement that included the name of the oppressed like the black Panthers, yup, the violent civil rights movement in history. They won't stop until black lives thrive above other races.
This is what feminism wants. They want females to have it easier yet be more wealthy than men. I agree we have differences in our lives as female and male; however, we must not assume that female and male are the same, expecting equality in every aspects. Females are good at some things that men are not and vice versa, and the feminist movement focuses on the areas of male expertise and demands equality, but equality in the. harsh blue collared life work? NAAHHHHHH LMAO.46
What Girls & Guys Said
It's terrible that they are. And one of the reasons I increasingly don't identify as a feminist, but still stand for gender equality.
I don't understand how or why Heard is still able to operate with impunity.
Especially since most feminists decry domestic violence. One doesn't get to choose to paint oneself as a defender and champion of abuse victims, but pick and choose which abusers to let off the hook.
They ought to condemn her. If for no other reason than she's attempting to throw a rug over proof.40
Actually society has made it so that women abusers aren't really talked about or taken seriously. Men were taught not to hit women so women have adapted to hitting men and its wrong but women abusing men has become so much more common because of the little things that society has stipulated as normal gender roles. Men also don't usually talk about or go to the authorities about abuse from women so it makes it harder to beleive that women do abuse men. Feminists tend to always go quiet about anything that puts them in a compromising position about spreading their beliefs and ideals.29
Because they don't care. This has never been about doing what is right, its never been about "equality", its been about gaining power and shedding responsibility. Amber Heard is a role model for feminists everywhere, she is everything they want all women to be, rich, powerful, violent and awful with no accountability. Its their dream to be like her.80
I am not a feminist, but I guess some feminazi think that men are inferior uman being, and I am disgustes by this definition.
We still live in a world where when a woman is abused it is a crime, but when it is a man it is not a crime. So this is why people aren't doing nothing, and I am sorry for Johnny.80
I read bellow what you said about your brother. I hope the bitch got a bad reputation for the lie she told. As the feminists harrassing your brother, they don't care about justice, they care about revenge. To them men deserve to feel that pressure and fear of being acused and have our lives destroyed even with no evidences because "we had enough privilege up until now". According to them women were never listen to in the past so men should not be listen to now as revenge for how things were.
Of course this is only valid to women. Since we historically were the oppressors, to put it simply, they don't give a fuck about what happens to us.32
Because it does not fit their narrative of men are rapists, abusers, and just inherently bad. The Domestic violence industry, and yes its an industry is a multi billion dollar industry, If they had to admit that they were wrong about men after all of these years of man hating, It would not look very good on them, would it? Bottom line is Feminists refuse to admit to things that go against their narrative. For example Erin Pizzey was kicked out of her own DV shelter that she started because she admitted the truth, that women are just as bad as men. She became antifeminist after that. she's actually one of the founding mothers of it. In any case The Johnny Depp situation is a perfect example of why feminism is cancer.60
Because women operate in a Borg-like collective consciousness, in which everything that advantages women is 'good' and everything that is fair to men is 'bad'.
That is the result of 60 years of Feminist/Communist indoctrination through the faux education system and Hollywood.
The result of the Depp defamation case is another example to illustrate the point that there is no longer any justice for men in the West.
The only way that men can protect themselves is to not interact with women.
As we say in martial arts, the best way to avoid a blow is to not be there (when it arrives).
The only way that men can protect themselves is to cut themselves off from interaction with females as much as possible. No dating, no sex, no relationships. . . nothing.
Do not even speak to women. I have seen 'good morning' used as the basis for a workplace sexual-harassment complaint.418
Modern feminism is about women getting as many rights as possible but zero responsibilities/obligations. Saying you did something wrong implies an obligation to make things right. It means you're not a victim.
The other thing that happens is that feminists only care about themselves even when they're in a relationship so they're not really capable of being a positive in a relationship.526
Because feminists don’t want to take accountability and looking at themselves in the mirror. The world we live in is shaped to “care” about others but it seems more ‘me-centric’ that goes for the LGBTQ, feminists, liberals/democrat & conservative/republican supporters. After analyzing the enlightenment period of the 18th century, sure self-thought for advancements in science and technology but it’s also had a double edged sword counter on society as well. People may not agree with this but I don’t believe in ism-based ideologies. Yeah we won’t see eye to eye on things but times today seem different. It seems like if someone disagrees with you they will go mental or pull a gun out on you... retarded, immature, dangerous times we live in.50
I believe in equal rights for both genders and but feminism is still very important in today's society but unfortunately i have to say I'm disgusted with the treatment of Johnny Deep and the fact none of these feminist are sticking up for him. Unfortunately a lot of so called feminist are actually not for equal rights of both genders and they are the types of people who give feminist a bad name and have let feminism get in the wrong hands and turned it into a joke.
Either way Amber turd has ruined her own career along with Johnny's and im sure he will get throw this. Johnny is loved by many and is a amazing actor whilst Amber is shit at acting and people hate her. Honestly who wants to hire someone who shits the bed?11
First of all, how do you define a feminist and how do you know that they're silent about it? Assuming that feminists were silent about it, it makes sense that they are unlikely to comment on issues that don't involve female victims. While not all forms of feminism are the same, nonetheless, the goal of feminism is to represent, support, and uplift women, especially if they're victims. This doesn't mean that they don't care about male abuse; it's just simply not their issue. If a woman is the abuser in a relationship, then there is nothing to uplift regarding her. Yet, that doesn't mean that some feminists aren't speaking out against women that abuse men or even this case specifically. With that being said, I will ask again: how do you know for sure that this isn't happening?10
The fact she is still on a contract and he has lost work is dispicable... The fact he lost a court case against that disgusting rag the sun newspaper calling him a wife beater etc is a disgrace.. Unfortunately none of us can say he didn't hit her, the 2 jakeballs where out their tits on drugs, but she has admitted to hitting him and yet she got off scot free what example is that setting for domestic abuse? She should have lost her contract as well. You work in films aimed at children but openly admit to taking drugs then both should be out of jobs... Both in the wrong. Why does she have a job still is the question? She's vile and an evil streak about her, can't act and a gold digger, let's be honest she's defo no stranger to the infamous * casting couch*0
Well its stupid really cuz feminists arnt suppose to be only caring about their own gender as the original purpose of feminism is to raise the equality between men and women as in the past women where seen as less and only a tool for men to create heirs in their family but in this day and age that not as a prominent issue anymore but should still speak out against women take it the other way and try to own men thats why feminism is stupid now because all feminists care about these days is any victim who is woman but if your a guy they dont care which is wrong because like i said the original purpose was based on equality now they fight for un equality by making things the other way around.0
Why are feminists silent about the domestic abuse Johnny Depp suffered?
The Feminists are silent about this as it doesn't fit their 'The woman is always the victim' narrative. they go on about the domestic abuse that women suffer but you will rarely if ever hear about the men who suffer domestic abuse at the hands of women, men do not bring it to the notice of police for they know that the women that it is they who is suffering the domestic abuse and the police will accept it as then have been trained and blinkered by the Duluth Model70
It might be because a male feminist hasn't wrote about it yet (yes, there are male feminists and they write about mens rights as well as women). Or it could be that people just aren't paying that much attention to the fact his partner had abused him. I mean, there's those people that are like "well, men are dominant so they're strong enough to fight off anyone who tries to hurt them." Even though some men don't do that when they get hit and stuff because they know if they do people might assume he's the abuser instead of the victim. I've said this before but it's easier to just let them do whatever they want to you rather than trying to defend yourself (since doing that will just anger the abuser more).0
Well feminist as a group don't adress this because it is a completely different issue.
However if you are implying that women in general are not standing up for male domestic abuse victims you are wrong. Most people have great empathy with Johnny depp.50
I suppose I am a feminist. Yeah, I am not silent about it at all or any domestic violence! It's pretty sickening. This issue has nothing to do with feminism, so I dont understand the moot point. The better point is why isn't it handled better across countries. Domestic violence, in general, is silent37
There needs to be more awareness of demestic violence towards men.
Women often attack men they are married to and force them to fight back then call the police on them and get everything in the divorce due to lack of evidence and a bias court system.30
I don't know where you've been but all my feminist friends were in uproar when Johnny Depp was fired from fantastic beasts. I see it literally everywhere and I'm not even that interested in celebrities or from the USA.
If you choose to ignore the uproar then that's your choice.11
a LOT are. you don't get to decide that the only people who you can call feminists are the ones you don't agree with just like I don't get to decide the opposite.
but the ones that aren't are, in a lot of cases, very embarrassed because when this story was first developing, they threw their lot behind Amber Heard, canceled Depp, and don't feel confident enough to retract their statements based on new evidence. they "don't know what to believe," because she was so convincing to begin with.10
A lot of them are, however, though you have to admit people love say the system favours women and then question them when rape cases come up it's kinda like that with men abuse. Because of how we view "gender" fewer people are likely to believe Johnny even if it's true simply because he's a man.
Personally, I'm sad for him no one deserves that however again don't blame feminist blame society and I guess you could also blame the concept of the macho man, "because oh men are so tough" they could never be hurt by a woman, it works against them in cases like this. Assault against men isn't taken seriously becuase society tells us that men are these strong tough guys that can't be hurt by a dainty little woman until it actually happens... which is again why you never really hear male rape cases even tho it happens a lot.
Also you could say it's pettiness when people talk about rape cases for women no one really believes them in court or they say things like "she was wearing a thong, she wanted this", it could be they want men to get a little taste of revenge." Becuase Johnny is the man, he should've been able to over power her" But again personally, I feel bad for him. But this is the society we in and that's just gender politics playing out
The thing i always think about rape cases is that if there are men out there evil enough to rape then there are certainly women out there evil enough to make up a false rape allegation. I dont there are more evil men than women, its got to be like 50/50.
My brother was accused of raping a girl at college, he had dumped and was dating someone else. She had a big sob story and the college was trying to kick him out, he faced harassment from feminists on campus everyday, his work was being marked down, there were flyers posters, hate mail, property damage, an Internet campaign. Thing was she made it all up, my brother was at a family wedding for the entire week 4 states away, on camera and everything.
Sorry about your bother I do admit false rape cases are a big problem but the fact that society was so quick to blame him is 100% the point, we don't view genders equally in society we think men are more likely to commit crimes then women (which I mean it true but it shouldn't be something we think about too much) the reality is, if people didn't believe in the archtype of the 'hyper maucline dominate angry man" maybe your brother would've been given the benefit of the doubt and maybe people would care more about Johnny's case. The rape cases were only an example but even you have to attempt out of all the ones that are lies how when of them are actually turn or turned against the victim in the situation (being possible a man or a woman), it's kind ofsad when you think about it.
When people are seriously hurt they aren't taken seriously but when its a lie you're more likely to believe them, aside of that I'm sorry that happened to your brother but I think that most be a university where it happens a lot becuase most university's don't give that reaction
No actually more people support Johnny. So maybe they are simply targeting Amber because she’s a woman. by the way I’d watch what you say about false rape claims. They aren’t false 97% of the time. However, women who have come forward have a much higher suicide rate. Daisy and Audrey is a prime example.
