The MRAs are outraged.
Not because a violent misogynist killed people.
They are outraged that people had the nerve to blame their influence. This young man took to heart many of their philosophies. He was taught that if his perceived entitlement was not fulfilled, it justified his behavior. 
I’m filled with such saddening disappointment. A huge wake up call was shot across the bow of all men, and many of us seem only concerned with deflecting blame.
This “outrage” post is stickied to the top of the forum. That is their top priority. 
It does not occur to them that maybe their first priority should be to condemn this behavior—to say that using violence as a response to rejection is not okay. 
Your mothers, your sisters, your daughters… they are frightened. Just saying “no” is a fearful prospect.
That is not okay.
But instead of worrying about them, all you seem to care about is not being blamed.
You say not all men are monsters?
Imagine a bowl of M&Ms. 10% of them are poisoned.
Go ahead. Eat a handful.
Not all M&Ms are poison.

"what’s a queen without her king?" well, historically, better

also, in the british monarchy, if a queen is on the throne, there isn’t a king. her husband is a prince. BUT if a king is on the throne, his wife is a queen. which truly shows that the country can be ruled without a king but can’t without a queen.

I was in China not too long ago. It felt like months even though it was only three weeks. I visited family and explored the Yunnan Province. This part of China sits at the center of the Golden Triangle, which is a lucrative trade relationship between its neighboring countries, Laos, Burma and Thailand. We started in Kunming and stayed on the Yunnan-Tibet Road, which of course, is a path that links China to Tibet. Our furthest destination was the devastatingly beautiful Shangri-La. This trip made a lasting impression on me in ways I can’t even begin to describe. Strangely, it’s easier to explain in Chinese. China seems to be a place of enormous contradictions. Such beauty and history, yet great economic disparity and destruction. Lots of destruction and constant building. 
When I got back, Gallery Nucleus asked me to be apart of their travel themed show, Adventure Awaits! It was just the perfect opportunity to reflect on my trip artistically. I’m so happy to have my work hung up by some pretty badass illustrators. The opening night is tomorrow, 5/24, so if you’re in LA, check it out! The following two pieces are in the show. 

that top illustration is STUNNING wow

why are teenage white boys so amused by the concept of handcuffs. why is it the first thing they do when you mention working in law enforcement is ask you if you “get handcuffs” or “know how to use handcuffs” with a shit-eating grin on their face. yes. yes, i know how to use the fucking handcuffs. do you want to see how fast i can drop you on the damn ground because ill do it before you even know what’s happening and im like two seconds away from doing so. d o n o t
