On average, you have a 1 in 18,989 chance of being murdered
A trans person has a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered
The average life span of a cis person is about 75-90
The average life expectancy of a trans person is 23-30 years old
75% of people killed in anti LGBT hate crimes are poc
Think about this the next time you go crying over “cisphobia” and “reverse racism”
On average, a person in the United States has about a 1 in 1250 chance of committing suicide.
A male in the United States has about a 1 in 750 chance of committing suicide.
On average, a person in the United States has about a 1 in 20,000 chance of being murdered each year.
A male in the United States has about a 1 in 13,000 chance of being murdered each year.
Think about this the next time you go crying over “sexism”.
And I’m not even going into gang or drug related violent crimes, of which males are 90% of the victims.
Did you really think it was necessary and appropriate to take a post about trans issues and then derail it to make some anti-feminist point about men’s issues?
Suicide: “Not for lack of trying: women attempt it three times as often.  Researchers have found that gender differences in socialization is the strongest explanation for men’s relative success in suicide attempts. In the United States, for instance, it has been shown that unsuccessful suicide attempts are considered “feminine” while it is considered masculine to succeed. In other words, the fear of being labeled “feminine” or “weak” in a male supremacist culture encourages men to ensure their attempts are successfully completed.  The statistic given here also masks that many of these “suicides” were actually murder-suicides. In the United States, an estimated 1,000 to 1,500 people died in suicide attacks each year.  More than ninety percent of the offenders are men; nearly all the victims are female. ”
Murder: “Men also murder at a rate more than 9 times that of women. That men are often killed by other men is not a problem that women are responsible for. I can hardly imagine why that even needs to be said. In the United States in 2010, 1,095 women were killed by husbands or boyfriends, accounting for 37.5% of female murders. By contrast, only 241 men were killed by their female partners.  The smallness of this figure is particularly striking when we consider that 200,000 women in the United States suffer serious violence from male partners each year. ”

Basically patriarchy backfiring on men. Stop blaming us for your own bullshit. I’m totally willing to get on board with men’s issues, but not when your way of fixing them is blaming everyone but the person whose fault it truly is.
Trying to derail a post about trans issues to discuss men’s issues is idiotic and was rightfully called out, but countering that by saying that male suicide victims are responsible for their depressive/suicidal feelings is way over the line.
It’s misleading and dangerous to label mental health issues stemming from systemic societal issues as the “patriarchy backfiring on men” or “blaming [non-men] for your own bullshit.” The patriarchy is a non-conscious organization of society. Saying that someone taking their own life is some sort of blowback or karma or revenge for being male is a ridiculous claim that does disservice to all people with mental health challenges.
You’re masking thinly veiled ableism in the guise of attacking the patriarchy.
Do you think every president goes through a awkward first few weeks in office when they’re not sure when’s the right time to ask if aliens are real or not?
"Haha! Americans don’t have free healthcare!"
Yeah it’s actually a serious problem people are literally dying can this stop being a silly nationalistic insult?
