In yet another stunning victory for their cause, Men’s Rights Activists have successfully infiltrated the comments of yet another article critical of them, leading possibly dozens of comment readers to mutter to themselves “Jesus Christ these guys again, honestly do they do anything else besides post this crap?”
This time, the target of the Men’s Rights raiders was an article on the website of GQ’s British Edition with the self-explanatory title “Men’s Rights Activists are cave dwelling idiots.”
Naturally, the comments from the MRA invaders tended to rather prove the author’s point, with regard to cave-dwelling idiocy.
There were accusations of gender treason:
Bog-standard predictions of feminism’s impending demise:
Unique takes on women’s history:
“Retard” used as an insult:
Awkward turkey-related metaphors:
And of course, Paul Elam:
I should note that GQ seems to be moderating the comments fairly strictly; several I was intending to quote vanished before I grabbed a screenshot. I can only imagine what the rest of the moderated comments look like.
I should also note that Mr. Elam was so offended by the GQ article that he went and made a video about it.
In it the angry Elam, occasionally sounding like one of the storytellers on Drunk History, denounces the article as “lickspittle journalism,” describes its author, Rupert Myers, as looking “kinda like Alfred E. Neuman with liver disease,” defends the infamous AVFM article in which he referred to Bill Cosby’s accusers as “a bunch of drug whoring star [expletive deleted]” and makes the preposterous charge that it is Myers who is the true misogynist for criticizing his Cosby article because this means that Myers thinks that, as Elam puts it,
talking honestly about the reality of drug whoring star [expletive deleted]s is hostile to all women.
You may have to run that through your head a few times until it makes any kind of sense, because it really doesn’t.
Elam then declares Myers to be a “misogynist little [expletive deleted].“
