My name is Paige. I am 21.
I like sugar and cigarettes.
And aesthetically pleasing beings, tearing down hegemonic ideologies, good craft beer, and fantasy novels.

This is a stat that many MRAs will use in support of Men’s Rights but I can say with full confidence that the male suicide rates are a product of the patriarchy. Our society portrays emotional weakness and brokenness as a strongly feminine trait, so depressed or suicidal men are far less likely to seek out help for their problems and those that do are less likely to be given the support they need. “Man up” is something I have been told time after time in my times of my own depression and thoughts of suicide, it’s disheartening and there are those who will not get better without support. So these thousands of young boys who will never again walk this earth, taken from their friends and family by their own hands are largely victims of the patriarchy. Fight the patriarchy, for men, women and everyone outside and in between.

"Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race. Even before there were large numbers of Negroes on our shores, the scar of racial hatred had already disfigured our society. From the 16th century forward, blood flowed in battles of racial supremacy. We are perhaps the only nation that tried, as a matter of national policy, to wipe out its Indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. Indeed, even today we have not permitted ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode. Our literature, our films, our drama, our folklore all exalt it." -Dr.Martin Luther King Jr.
