The 5 most ridiculous things causing misogynists to lose their sh*t this week

 

carellyell

It’s the eternal question: do misogynists spend their entire lives looking for excuses to get mad at women, or are they so naturally enraged by any evidence of female autonomy that they can’t help but erupt in rage over the tiniest of things?

We may never know the answer to that question. What we do know: almost anything can provoke them, no matter how trivial it is, no matter how misguided their anger might seem to anyone who doesn’t actually, you know, hate women. Let’s look at some of the latest things to cause women-haters to lose their shit.

1) British tennis champ Andy Murray’s  announcement this week that he was hiring former female tennis champion Amélie Mauresmo as his coach. Even though she’s, you know, a lady.

On Twitter, as Buzzfeed has chronicled, some have taken exception to Mauresmo’s status as a non-man.

Others have suggested that maybe she’s more of a man than him – ho ho!

https://twitter.com/53pkempy/status/475607459927949312

Why it would matter to any of these people just whom someone who is not them wants as his coach remains unclear.

2) An article on the Huffington Post noting that on D-Day, one woman – war correspondent Martha Gellhorn – accompanied the 150,000 men who stormed the beaches.

It’s an interesting story: all the female correspondents who requested spots on the boats were turned down, so she ended up sneaking her way into the invasion by hiding in a ship’s bathroom.

But over on the A Voice for Men forums, someone called Humansplaining w/ Jarred is outraged that “Feminists can’t even let Men have D-DAY for themselves!”

Here we are on the 70th anniversary of a watershed moment in one of the bloodiest wars in human history, where thousands of men selflessly gave their lives, and some Feminist feels the need to devote an entire article to the fact that there was also ONE woman involved! There you go, it’s official – the ratio of worth from women to men, is 1:150,000. Those two are completely equal in the eyes of many Feminists, apparently. You can spend all your time relaying the experiences of that one female in great detail, without even the slightest nod to the individual experiences of those 150,000 other human beings that were involved, many of whom perished in the process. Because VAGINA.

Yep. That’s right. Telling the story of one woman on D-Day is an attack on all the men involved. Hell, let’s take that further. Any story told about any individual person involved in a collective effort should be considered a grave insult to all the others. Saving Private Ryan is an insult to all soldiers who weren’t Private Ryan!

3) LEGO is launching a new series of scientist minifigures – only this time, they’re women!

On the Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them) website, British MRA and would-be politician Mike Buchanan sniffs that this move by LEGO belongs in the

‘You couldn’t make this s*** up!’ file. Doubtless it will sell well to hatchet-faced mothers determined to quash any signs of femininity in their unfortunate daughters.

Apparently acknowledging the existence of female scientists is somehow an injustice to men and boys?

4) Older women sometimes have sex with younger men.

There’s a certain kind of man who likes to loudly declare just which women – or categories of women – he “wouldn’t bang.” Our old friend Heartiste – the white-nationalist, purple-prose-writing pickup guru – is a member of a slightly smaller subgroup: he gets angry when other men have sex with the women he’s declared unsuitable, a group which apparently includes all but 0.1% of women his age and older.

In a recent post, Heartiste lambastes the dating site CougarLife.com as a symptom of our “rapid cultural collapse.” Its crime? Matching up “mangy cougars” and their “dusty muffs” with “inexperienced younger men hauling a knapsack of blue balls.”

While Heartiste directs most of his hate at the so-called cougars themselves – for the crime of having sex while female and forty plus – he’s indignant that younger men, in his mind, allow themselves to resort to

the shabby hole of a bottom shelf jezebel to alleviate your incel. … a tepid squirt of pallid pleasure in exchange for your dignity and psychologically distressing confirmation that this is the best you might ever do.

Apparently the idea that a younger man and an older women might actually enjoy having sex with one another is too much for his fragile misogynist mind to take.

Indeed, it’s hard not to wonder if Heartiste actually likes sex at all  – or if his own alleged lovemaking prowess extends much beyond a “tepid squirt.” This, after all, is a guy who thinks going down on a woman is “beta,” because burying your face in what he calls that “fetid, humid mess” is sort of icky, and might lead her to think that you think she’s hot.

And last but not least:

5) Some people are trying to get colleges to take rape more seriously.

In a column in the Washington Post, George Will sniffs that colleges, by addressing what he calls “the supposed campus epidemic of rape” are bestowing upon “’sexual assault’ victims” a “coveted status that confers privileges,” thus encouraging others to jump aboard the victimhood express.

Others have already torn apart Will’s argument pretty thoroughly. So I’ll just note one not-so-little irony: the headline for Will’s column, as it ran in the Post, was “Colleges become the victims of progressivism.”

Why is it that the people who most loudly condemn the supposed “cult of victimhood” are the first to claim that they’re the ones who are really being victimized – by “progressives,” by feminists, by female tennis coaches, by stories about women in war, by LEGO figurines of female scientists, by women they don’t like having consensual sex, by anti-rape activists trying to create a climate in which more than 12% of rape survivors on campuses feel safe enough to report their rapes?

I once saw an evo psych troll argue that women are wired to like rugged ultra masculine looking men, but pop culture by making baby faced guys like Justin Bieber famous is brainwashing women into not like “real” men anymore. :/

Oh dear.

As soon as I hear someone say “brainwashing” in order to explain a social phenomenon, I know that they aren’t worth taking seriously.

So, um, there have been a lot of soft-faced pretty boys beloved by women and girls, across a wide variety of times and cultures. Occams Razor would suggest “this is a thing that a lot of women and girls find really attractive” rather than “brainwashing”.

Mostly though I just think it’s hilarious that they seem to believe Biebs is the first example of this phenomenon.

I once saw on an MRA or anti-feminist tumblr (they all sound alike) a dude complaining about all the fangirls that Benedict Cumberbatch has, and he doesn’t get it cuz Benedict isn’t even hot in the traditional sense.

Can’t win with these losers. We’re bad because we like conventionally attractive guys, we’re also bad if we like non-conventionally attractive guys.

But then you realize that all they mean to says is “women are bad because they don’t like me”

Gee I wonder why.

Ah, memories of Russell Brand-related days of yore. Child never did seem to understand that given the body hair aversion thing, from my perspective he kind of looks like a werewolf.

Hair misandry!

Totally! XD

Yup, because “passing phase of square-faced dudes being considered the beau-ideal” is totes the way it’s always been.

I guess it was just current pop culture that had women going for Byron or Buckingham or Leicester
or the Young Man Among Roses (who may or may not be Essex).

Because RealMenz(TM) have always looked like Aaaahhnold.

kittehserf: Buckingham

ooooh, what lovely punto in aria

It’s Russell Brand’s expression that puts me off. I mean, he’s got way more beard than I like, but there’s just something about his face that’s no, no, no. Even the hair can’t make up for that.

I am thinking I’m gonna have to watch The Mummy now. I could get heaps of “he reminds me of guess who” value out of seeing Oded Fehr in that.

On Benedict Cumberbatch, I didn’t get it at all about him until I saw a few episodes of Sherlock. I don’t find him physically appealing at all, but seeing him acting, yeah, I can understand how attractive he is to so many people now.

One actor I find attractive is Roger Allam. He’s middle aged, he’s not conventionally handsome, he has gorgeous eyes and the role I’ve mainly seen him in – Fred Thursday in Endeavour – is just the best character.

takshak – isn’t it just? I love the laces of that period. The falling band is the sexiest thing ever, as far as I’m concerned. Well, if it’s worn by the right person, of course.

And trust Buckingham to totally overdo it with the pearl necklace. 😀

The only thing I ever liked Brand in was Forgetting Sarah Marshall, in which he somehow managed to be the least irritating character in the movie despite being a complete arsehole.

(Really didn’t like that movie.)

I can see how he might be fun to drink and/or get high with, but other than that? Nope, he mostly seems like he’d be exhausting.

I used to think Cumberbatch was hot. Then my mom said he reminds her of my father. Even though I don’t see the similarities the very hint of a possible association killed it for me.

I still like Hal Sparks and Adam Scott for attractive in less conventional ways actors though.

Side note: My dad’s fiancée gave him a fedora and he loves it. I don’t have the heart to tell him about all the things fedoras are associated with.

I get it, dudebros need to think they’re the center of the universe at all times — which also requires they piggyback men who have actually accomplished something, past, present and future. Our little troll demonstrated that. He thinks past male Nobel Prize winners has something personally to do with him.

Martha Gellhorn was fucking famous, why wouldn’t we celebrate one of the world’s most famous war correspondents?

How could MRAs perform oral sex? That would mean putting someone’s needs before there’s. Of course it’s gross, it’s an act that doesn’t center on the penis. Thought, like others before me, I’m convinced MRAs/PUA aren’t interested in good sex. They want a validation object their friends will be jealous of in public, then they want that validation object to coddle and baby them at home, even if that means picking their poo-poo undies off the floor.

Cougars make them feel bad; these women go about their lives as if BioTroofs aren’t a thing. Hmmm. Maybe BioTroofs aren’t a thing? Wait stop, younger women may be watching, you darn cougars. Stop!They’re co-opting a man’s priviledge to date younger people — which may give other women ideas, especially younger women who may decide they like younger men or men their own age, and not men old enought to be their grandad. If misogynists can’t date younger women, how are they going to convince themselves they’re never going to die — and are in fact, getting younger? Older women do things like judge your sexual performance and have typically seen more than one or two penises in real life. Stop it, cougars, you’re making these guys clutch their pearls!

I feel like maybe the fedora = collossal asshole association is less strong for men who’re middle aged and older.

Mike doesn’t know what he is talking about. As usual, we have an MRA projecting his beliefs onto others.

All women, or even most, do not think a female dominated profession is just fine. I’m in nursing school and the profession is very much trying to encourage men and people from minority groups to consider nursing so the profession better reflects and serves the population. It’s in the textbooks and frequently discussed. My male classmates have much to offer and are great to work with.

Although I’m sure the idea of men getting into nursing is damaging to the MRA fragile ego.

I tend to think fedora = colossal asshole is an internet thing, and nonsense. It’s just a style of hat. The same thing could be said of any style worn by douchecanoes. Why let them own it?

kittehserf.. it just goes over the top when worn with those studs. Less studs, more blackwork!

Or studs, but no necklace! Not that restraint was ever “Legs” Buckingham’s (he’s wearing the Garter robes there) thing. D’you know the story about him showing off by having a fortune in seed pearls sewn very loosely on his doublet, so they fell off every time he moved? People would scoop them up to give back to him, and he’d wave them away as beneath his notice. Dude did not do subtlety.

Poop, the second paragraph should have been blockquoted: I was quoting takshak.

kittehserf.. no, lol. I honestly don’t think the whole slops thing is very attractive, either. I tend to prefer the lines on earlier styles, but I have to admire the sheer glitz of the late tudor fashions. Plus blackwork. One cannot dislike blackwork

kittehserf
7 years ago

This is truth. Blackwork is amazing.

Slops don’t do much for me, either. The styles of the very late 1620s through the 1630s are the ones that get me all starry-eyed. I like the earlier Tudor fashions too, especially when men’s necklines got really wide in, oh, around the 1520s, I think – almost off-the-shoulder. Very sexy look, that.
