Dude Antebellum

We need a Godwin’s Law expansion pack to deal with white dudes who compare their lives with that of slaves in the Antebellum south. Well, for those who compare their lives to slaves without concluding: “Wow, my life is really much, much better than that of a slave. For example, I am not enslaved!” That’s not, alas, the conclusion drawn by this spelling-challenged Men’s Rights Redditor:  

Edited to add: BTW, I found this quote via ShitRedditSays, best subreddit EVAR!

Reading a website != trolling the site.

Actually, reading sites TOTALLY equals trolling them when a women does it.
Because it was not even discussed what they were doing! Which it totally like enslaving white men to toil in the internet mines. Or something.

For instance, just a few posts up, ozymandias42 admits trolling r/mr and NSWATM

Um, Ozy runs NSWATM.

Wait! ozy runs nswatm, and she’s posting stuff here…awesome. Let’s see by her comments how she seriously cares about the menz…

Yeah, and I read r/mr when they link to posts on NSWATM, because I’m curious what gets r/mr outraged and because it’s amusing when they call me “the bitch.”

Magdelyn, old news. r/mr has been on about how NSWATM is a secret conspiracy by Manboobz to take over the MRM for, like, months.

Seriously enough to want something better for them than the counterproductive, hateful crap the Mens’ “Rights” Movement feeds them. White Nationalism isn’t good for white people either.

More than you, Maggie, because she actually manages to restrict most of her attention to issues that actually affect men, rather than trying to do the mental and statistical gymnastics required to say the privileged class is the marginalized one.

magdelynswallows, the key to successfully carrying out a plot is to *never tell the people you’re plotting against that you have one*.

Well, I can obviously say, my survey of Ozy’s comments demonstrates that she hasn’t posted any of the provocative posts that I was expecting. S/he is very conservative in their posting.

The post above was poorly worded.

Nice weather we’re having…uh, Rutee, did you say something? You lost me at “privileged class.” See, sweet cheeks, I believe that being one’s self is not a “privilege.” As I’ve said many times before, I cannot control how people treat me because of some immutable characteristic, just like I am not responsible for people discriminating against me for that same characteristic. The whole notion of “privilege” is bullshit.

So…if you live in a mansion and servants bring you breakfast in bed every morning and strew rose petals in front of you wherever you walk, that’s not “privilege?”

Wait, Ozy – are you saying NSWATM is NOT a “secret conspiracy by Manboobz to take over the MRM”?!?!

DAMN AND BLAST.

VoiP – Please stop, they’ll soon ask us to reveal the location of our secret humorless feminazi man-murdering ball-busting bunker! We had SUCH a hard time relocating the Bad-Boy Cock Carousels last time, I’d hate to move those again.

See, sweet cheeks, I believe that being one’s self is not a “privilege.”

You should probably learn what concepts mean before trying to disprove them, because this is the most embarrassing counterclaim I’ve ever seen. The privilege isn’t in being yourself, it’s in being granted primacy that is unearned on the basis of status within a class.

As I’ve said many times before, I cannot control how people treat me because of some immutable characteristic, just like I am not responsible for people discriminating against me for that same characteristic. The whole notion of “privilege” is bullshit.

This is absolutely stupid; Perhaps if privilege were a concept that *ALSO* assigns blame, your retort would make sense, but what does your control of the situation have to do with whether or not you’re advantaged on the basis of status? Not a god damn thing, that’s what.

Mag, privilege is empirically quantifiable. If you don’t want to believe in it, that’s fine, you can remain ignorant, however your opinion matters little in the face of logic. So, no, the whole notion is not bullshit. What is sad however is how you think your opinion can dispute fact.

The Power Elite; written by C Wright Mills, for instance discusses privilege from an economic stand point. Simply looking at literacy, or the notion of job retention in markets based on gender (or race, etc.) and looking at statistics is indicative of privilege. You can not deny this information on any basis of reality.

You seem to be defining privilege differently than I’ve normally understood what the term means (in either the colloquial sense or the anti-oppression sense).

What’s your definition of the word privilege? o:

I wonder if there’s a way we could convince this guy he’d be better off in actual slavery? I mean, I have chores that need doing.

I’m not conservative! I’m a dirty socialist bastard! 🙁

Also, I’m genderqueer, so while both “she” and “he” are appropriate pronouns, my preferred pronoun is “zie.”
