antifeminism creepy disgusting women douchebaggery evil women men who should not ever be with women ever misogyny MRA nice guys oppressed men pedophiles oh sorry ephebophiles penises racism rape rapey reactionary bullshit reddit that's not funny! thug-lovers

Is Reddit nothing more than a collection of rape jokes and pedophilia apologias?

Nope! As the totally scientific chart above shows, it also contains: generalized misogyny, racism, atheist dickbaggery, and last but not least: lots of pics hosted on imgur!

Here, some recent data, most of which I have borrowed from ShitRedditSays. I’ve put the number of upvotes for each post in brackets, when relevant.

Rape jokes:

Guys, you’re not making enough rape jokes! [+856]

“I’d fuck her until the neighbours complained about the smell.” [+250] [Bonus points: Also a murder and necrophilia joke!]

Rape clock [+36]

Redditors mock a rape victim! [Assorted upvoted posts]

Pedophilia apologia:

Admitted pedo and child porn fancier compares himself with Gandhi [+83]

More goodness (by which I mean badness) from that thread, courtesy of SRS.

Oh noes! Evil anti-pedos threaten free pedo speech! [+25]

He’s been shamed into deleting it by you. Are you happy now? For the record, mattperrin said “Why does she have to be 18? So she can be in porn? Very very few girls enter porn, and if you’re just talking about being sexually aroused by her, that’s okay for anyone 13+”.

Pedo joke … perfection! [+100]

General Misogyny (and creepiness):

Ha Ha! Girls can’t work cameras! [+636]

Girls only like thugs and they’re all dumb and why oh why won’t they go out with a nice guy like me? Did I mention I hate women?  [+assorted massive upvotes]

Help me prove to this guy feminism is no longer needed. (Please do not use profanity and words like “cunt” though.) [This whole discussion is sort of delicious; our pal ThingsAreBad, aka JeremiahMRA, pops in to argue that feminism was never needed because everything was peachy back when women couldn’t vote.]

I’d fuck her right into a broken hip. [+588] [Referencing Helen Mirren.]

“She has very large holes in her earlobes. About the circumference of an erect penis. She is also very attractive. Myself and many other redditors, immediately upon viewing the picture, imagined putting our penises through those holes.” [+10]

Bonus! More random misogyny.

Racism:

“I just had sex with my first black guy, and believe me it’s true what they say…he stole my t.v.” [+477]

“No no no, that will just attract more rapists.” [+70] [BONUS POINT: Is also a rape joke!]

Atheist douchebags:

Reddit Makes Me Hate Atheists, by Rebecca Watson. As you’ll notice, her examples from r/atheism contain many massively upvoted rape and pedophilia jokes, not to mention lots more generalized misogynistic douchebaggery. The circle is complete!

But generally speaking you can pick almost any random highly upvoted post here for endless more examples of what makes even atheist activists hate Reddit atheists.

Which have helped to inspire this meme.

Pics on Imgur:

Top posts on (my) Reddit at the moment:

Then again, random pics of cute dogs and squirrel-riding frogs are certainly preferable to more angry racist rapey hatey pedo-justifying crap. So, yay imgur, I guess? (At least when it’s not being used to post still more angry racist rapey hatey pedo-justifying crap.)

35 times, you guys.

35 TIMES.

How many of those were instances of “you can’t tell me what to do”?

Which is to say, he just has to make one comment (I assume with some topical relevance), which isn’t about him, and then he can reply to people again. You’ve not forbidden him from ever speaking about himself, just insisted for some chunk of time he manage it.

Maybe just once.

Note to Brandon: if David had set himself “the Brandon challenge”, his second post above would have got through, while his first would require just one tiny change, which wouldn’t make any difference to the content.

See if you can work out what that tiny change might be.

For the record, this post would also pass “the Brandon challenge”.

Rape hysteria is generating a huge stress today. The term of “Rape” is misusing by hypocrites to bash heterosexuality, actually they do not want to protect the society.

Y’know, I think it’s totally awesome that a Sri Lankan wants to learn English and practice it with us. However, perhaps you’d find lessons with an actual English tutor more helpful, Explore Nature? Though your efforts are laudable (I don’t think anyone here can write Tamil or Sinhala even to the extent that you are able to randomly string together English words into an incoherent soup), they’re sadly impossible to decipher. Good luck with your efforts, Explore Nature! Stay away from MRAs!

moving along, I’m shocked to learn dude’s a Lankan. His earlier posts read very Eastern Europeanish as far as the phrasing went. Live and learn!

Just in case Brandon ever manages to write something like “here is a cute picture of a kitten” without adding an “I” or a “me”.

Me:

“Maybe the guy really did want coffee.”
Unlikely, and it does not matter. What he did made her uncomfortable

Brandon:

Probably, He probably did want to fuck Rebecca. But we can’t say for certain, so why are you assuming the worst of him?

You missed the part where it’s UNLIKELY AND DOES NOT MATTER. And our educated guess is that this very common pick-up line was used as a pick up line. Not that he is hannibal lecter.

B:

Feminists seem to lack the capacity for giving a man the benefit of the doubt.

Me:

and if he had any social skill, that’s a result he could have foreseen.

That’s what matter. Do you disagree? BTW, if he actually has no social skill, he should be thankful for the explanation. But she judge his acts, not his intentions.

Me:

Watson was asked to talked on the subject of how to bring more women to atheism, and she provided an example of something not to do in this perspective.

B:

OMG…she was uncomfortable. What a travesty! Making women uncomfortable should be against the law…give this man the death penalty!

If she had said that, she would have been hysterical. She didn’t. Let me emphasize that: SHE DID NOT call for this behavior to be illegal. She was ASKED to talked on how to bring more women to atheism, and she advised to make them feel welcome by not making feel uncomfortable. Why is that so crazy?

B:

Maybe Rebecca should grow some thicker skin and not get offended at minor inconveniences.

Or maybe you should grow a thicker skin and not get offended by four (reasonable) words said by a woman on a youtube video.

Definition time again! What does respectable mean?

“respectable” changes it’s meaning depending on the situation and context it is being used in. Also, I can disagree with someone but still respect someone.

That’s not a definition. The context is “when you said it”.

It is not a crime, immoral or even wrong to ask a question.

It’s NEVER wrong? Really? It’s not wrong if I ask someone “Do you prefer loosing your job or having sex with me?”? I mean, it’s just a question!

So saying this guy committed some terrible act is ridiculous at best.

NOBODY. EVER. SAID. HE. COMMITTED. A. TERRIBLE. ACT.

She thinks she is important enough to tell men “don’t do that!”.

She is important. Important enough to be paid to talk on the subject. More important than you and me, yet we’re still free to write our opinion.

Like she is some authority on male behavior.

In this particular case, she is an authority on what atheist men should do IF they want more women to come. So if you’re not an atheist that wish there was more women on atheist forum and meetings, she was not talking to you, and you can keep on very legally make women uncomfortable in elevators.

I can’t find anything wrong with what the pedophile says… I think it’s important to stop demonizing people for being naturally attracted to children. If it can’t be changed, it has to be dealt with somehow. These people need someone to talk to about it without fear of bad consequences. Pedophilia is not inherently evil, it’s just a natural trait that is deviant and can lead to damage, unlike other forms of sexuality. I also don’t get why they’d criminalize drawn images of child porn in some countries. It doesn’t even hurt anyone, and it provides pedophiles with an outlet. Studies I’ve looked at haven’t found a link between porn and increased sexual violence, so I doubt it’s gonna make them go out and rape.

WTF?? Why are you starting a weird argument about pedophilia in this thread?

A lot of the misogyny and sexism on reddit piss me off. But at the same time I find my Reddit experience to be pretty positive. People are mostly progressive, accepting of gay people, and there are plenty of subreddits for women of all stripes.

The second pedophile comment is creepy. The first one though I don’t see it as apologist. I think pedophiles need help before they offend. I don’t see how a culture full of Chris Hansens helps keep children safe if it just stigmatizes people who have these weird desires and makes them afraid to go get help from a therapist about it. It’s like Catholic priests being molestors.

Saying that doens’t mean that we should accept kids being sexualised in the media and images of underage girls in creepy pornographic poses. It just means that before someone is a chlld molestor. They’re someone with a desire. And they should get help for it.
