When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar,” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. “My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.”
It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions? How often had I sped past them as I learned of male achievement and men’s place in the history books? Then I read Rosalind Miles’s book “The Women’s History of the World” (recently republished as “Who Cooked the Last Supper?”) and I knew I needed to look again. History is full of fabulous females who have been systematically ignored, forgotten or simply written out of the records. They’re not all saints, they’re not all geniuses, but they do deserve remembering.

arcaneloquence:

realmisandrists:

1. using a slur that actually causes some men to be killed

2. believing that men only care about getting laid

But feminists are the ones who hate men?

It says a lot about who they are that people such as these automatically default to the assumption men must only be supporting feminism solely as a ploy to seduce women into sex, especially when the messages are in support following the UCSB shooting.

It says a lot about who they are that they immediately relegate men who offer such support to a lesser, reviled status.

It says a lot about who they are that their first response is to shame and degrade men who try to support women.

Feminists don’t hate men. Men hate men, just like men hate women, feminist or otherwise.
