Kate Harding Tells Men’s Rights Activists to Go Eff Themselves

middlefingercandles

You all need to go read Kate Harding’s bracing (and given all the recent doxxing bullshit, spectacularly well-timed) Jezebel piece titled “Fuck You, Men’s Rights Activists.” Here’s a sample:

Fuck you, first of all, for making it nearly impossible for decent men struggling with abusive partners or unfair custody arrangements to get the help they need and deserve. You have forever tainted those issues with your rage-filled, obsessively anti-woman horseshit, to the point where it’s become difficult for any rational, compassionate person to trust a man who claims he’s been screwed over in family court or abused by a female partner, even if he has. …

Fuck you for showing up every time women speak, especially about rape and abuse, and trying to make it all about you. Fuck you for derailing threads about the victims of Marc Lépine, a man who screamed about his hatred for feminists as he murdered fourteen women and injured many others, because you also hate feminists and want a fucking cookie for not killing anyone. Fuck you for making rape and death threats against young women who dared to protest a speaking engagement by a man who thinks little girls would enjoy being raped by their fathers if it weren’t for society telling them it’s dirty. Fuck you for whining about how unfair it is that women might wonder if you’re a rapist when you approach them out of nowhere, while completely ignoring how unfair it is that women feel the need to be on guard all the time in public. Or that if we relax and behave normally—drinking, dancing, dressing however we want—you will be the first motherfuckers in line to blame us for getting ourselves raped.

And it keeps going from there.

Thank you Kate, for putting it so well.

*is late to the thread*

*has projects to grade*

Yeah. “Deder odjebi”, or Serbian for “do fuck off”. But any Cyrillic (and now Latin) literate Slav out there should figure it out. Which I’m guessing Joe is some permutation of, and seems to think he’s better than the rest of us, because omg, EST. Like you know, the good chunk of the rest of the non-English native part of the human race, who happen not to think they’re super special because foreign language.

Ugh, overreacting, need caffeine. *goes back to grading projects*

Yay, mystery solved!! And I’m glad you left us a day to try and solve it by ourselves- I feel I learned a lot.
On another note- gif savvy folks here- this must be incorporated to all regular responses:

TTF – that was an Owly joke. He said once that Spanish and Russian use the same alphabet. 😀

For seriously, if you have not cracked open the Big Book of Larnin, hie thee to the forums at once. (but don’t too much at once–it will seriously alter reality)

Ahaha, whoops! Sorry about that!

Who needs bad acid trips when they can read The World According to Owly?

Our entire site is quickly becoming incomprehensible to anyone who hasn’t been here for years, because you can’t go five minutes without someone mentioning dividing the country along the Mississippi or SCENTED FUCKING CANDLES.

And then I’m all ‘oh, just check the forums, there’s a glossary’ but it’s 50 pages long just for NWO…..

Crud, I should have considered that in-jokes are in-jokes for a reason. Sorry, TTF. (Did you really think I would have confused the Roman and Cyrillic alphabets, though?)

Thanks, folks! I’m glad I could make people laugh.

@ Falconer- Haha, I knew I was missing something, but I didn’t know what. And apparently my typing reflexes were faster than my braining reflexes, so that was the best way I thought of to go ‘gah?’. Oh, AVFM welcomed Kate Hardign to the fold with this adorable piece:
http://www.avoiceformen.com/feminism/jezebels-kate-harding-joins-the-mrm/

I only sort of skimmed it, but so far this is my favorite part:

“Michigan NOW opposes forced joint custody for many reasons: it is unworkable for uncooperative parents; it is dangerous for women and their children who are trying to leave or have left violent husbands/fathers; it ignores the diverse, complicated needs of divorced families; and it is likely to have serious, unintended consequences on child support.”

In other words, fathers gaining shared custody might impact the amount of money divorcing wives can shake them down for.

Yes, they literally interpreted that entirely plausible explanation as ‘greedy women want your money, manslaves!!’ They don’t even appear to try anymore.

We should have a list of in jokes on the forums. When I say “We should” what I mean is that someone with a better memory than I have should create such a list. XD

“Got-born privilege” needs to be added to the list. See, Joe, your unhinged rantings here have made an impact! They have occasionally amused us.

I’d contribute, but I don’t think anyone’s ever approved my forum membership 🙁

David’s the only one who handles forum memberships, so you may want to bug him. (But the fora have been pretty dead anyway.)

Yeah, Falconer, click on David’s big red head up above to email him. You might have gotten into a spam filter or something.

BTW, I’m on my lunch break — where are the trolls?!? If there’s no troll-whacking to be done, I’ll have to search for recipes. I’m trying to get back into cooking after relying almost entirely on Trader Joe’s for my survival for the past 2 years. (Grad school + working full time = cooking seemed like a terrible chore.)

No trolls today, cloudiah :(.
