antifeminism evil women it's science! misogyny MRA reddit

Why aren’t more women world leaders? Some Reddit dude has a theory. (SPOILER ALERT: It’s really dopey.)

NOTE: It’s the final day of the Man Boobz Pledge Week! It’s gone quite well. Once again, serious thanks to everyone who has donated! I appreciate it a great deal.

If you haven’t yet donated, and want to, here’s the button you’re looking for:

Men’s Rights activists spend more time discussing women than most women’s studies majors. Heck, they might even qualify for honorary degrees in women’s studies, if we expand the term “study” to mean “make shit up.”

Here a couple of dudes on the Men’s Rights subreddit offer their new but not-exactly-improved version of  “difference feminism.”

Seems legit.

I’m gonna change my user name to ‘some girl bored with someguy bored with your schtick’s schtick’

someguy is very concerned.

he is concerned.

we are not being very good journalists.

This is troubling, since he really gives even the slightest shit about our motives and goals.

someguy is concerned.

@Pecunium
Look Pecunium, I’m not going to argue with you about the American jurisdiction and the legal meaning of specific terms which might be different from the casual meaning. Quite frankly, I know shit about the American law and I don’t really care. I’m not even a native speaker. So yes, maybe you are right, though I remain skeptical. Because I’m smart enough to realize that this shit is complicated and you are layperson as well. If you’re interested in that discussion you should debate with a lawyer.

Just one thing:

Characteristically repetititve. He did it twice, in two different fora. Did he remove it when he apologised? This one is against you.

As far as I know, he posted the address in one forum and later asked the admin to remove the post when he realized he made a mistake.

Instead you focus on a comment that is currently voted up two, down one and was probably seen by almost no one and is of absolutely zero importance.

ahahahaha, the guy constantly going on about journalistic integrity thinks we can’t scroll up and see the one that got 43 upvotes. The guy constantly going on about journalistic integrity thinks we can’t scroll up and read that David’s 4 sentences did not, in fact, focus on either comment. Good lord!

On top of all of that, he thinks we don’t know that r/mensrights doesn’t know who to downvote, that it’s all just random fluctuations and the sexist/anti-feminist crap doesn’t get consistently upvoted while feminist voices are consistently downvoted.

Schticky is just the greatest.

Someguy is dripping entitlement all over this thread (come on, get a tissue or a towel or something, it’s gross!)- not only does he demand to be spoonfed information (because we here at Manboobz OWE him whatever he wants to know on a silver platter), but he seems to be obsessed with acting as though this is his private little chat with David.

I can imagine him now, sitting on a park bench, having an invisible debate with the strawfeminists and asking them to do his research for him and then concluding that he is right when no one responds.

Isn’t House at least partially based on Holmes with Wilson/the team as his Watsons and Cuddy as some sort of Lestrade?

Also: Iron fist, constant surveillance. You lot are sneaky.

@pecunium

It was written in the context of his campaign against the doctrine of papal infallibility in the First Vatican Council. Obviously it’s applicable to humanity at large, but it was definitely about the Catholic Church.

“(I found out from a style consultant to politicians that they actually put glitter on their chests to make them more noticeable)”

I may or may not spend my afternoon looking at reruns of 2008 to see if Sarah Palin’s boobs were bedazzled.

Blitzgal: I’d say it was to the Catholic Church, about humanity at large, in the context of a specific question.

He was saying “this is a human problem, you don’t want to make it an institutional one.”

Falconer – I knew I should have mentioned Edward Hardwicke as well! 😀

I liked him too, but Burke had an extra dose of eyecandyosity. Either way, the fact that the series didn’t try to show Watson as a ninny was a winner for me.

Though I still can’t get my head round Jeremy Brett in this being the selfsame bloke who played Freddy Eynsford-Hill in My Fair Lady!

Yup, he’s quite explicitly based on Holmes. The show never made a secret of it – he even lives at 221B Baker Street.
