A Voice for Men doesn’t hate Mad Max Fury Road, except when it does

Apparently someone at A Voice for Men missed the meeting where they all get assigned their opinions to promote on social media for the day. On Twitter, Dean Esmay accuses a Huffington Post writer of lying about MRAs urging people not to see Mad Max: Fury Road:

It’s true that the HuffPo writer, in the original version of her piece, wrongly described the MRA-adjacent Return of Kings — which has urged a boymancott of Mad Max Fury Road —  as a Men’s Rights site proper. There are in fact some differences between ROK and AVFM. For example, while AVFM writers have declared women to be “obnoxious cunts,” who control men with their vaginas, ROK writers have suggested that women are actually depraved, disloyal sheep.

But it turns out that AVFMers have been — evidently behind Esmay’s back — railing against the movie themselves. I would like to draw Mr. Esmay’s attention to this meme, posted yesterday on AVFM’s Facebook page.

NOTE: When I refer to the “meeting where they all get assigned their opinions to promote on social media for the day” I am being a tad facetious, in that I don’t know for sure that they do actually have opinion-distribution meetings. It’s possible that the members of AVFM’s social media flying monkey squad decide to spout the same things en masse by accident.

NOTE 2: When I refer to AVFM’s “AVFM’s social media flying monkey squad” I am being a tad facetious as well, as I have no proof that they can actually fly.

EDIT: Dean is still at it! Yet another tweet:

Woody had to actually respond to a conversation going on the comments and incorporate the word “sporkle” into the post as well. He needed to successfully complete this task five times. It took him weeks of floundering in moderation before David finally took pity on him and reduced the requirements to two or three. He finally made it back into the big time, though. The guy was tenacious, I’ll give him that.

But then once he fulfilled it he went away. I hope he’s okay!

@Spindrift: A long train ride sitting next to a drunk guy who I had to give a fake number so he’d leave me be in between bouts of loud harmonica playing, then a day and a half of driving to almost the Mexican border to visit my sister, getting a sunburn in the process, and finding out that my sister’s boyfriend is not only beating on his parents, but her too, and his parents and my mom are planning to take her on a “trip” back with my mom so his parents can kick him out without fearing that he’ll take her with him.

Things will get better, but I’m having to play dumb with my sister about it for now. And her boyfriend’s lucky I haven’t been face to face with him. But if he does start something, his parents have already said they’d take my side.

Kinda like screaming racism.

You can only do it for so long before you turn people into racists.

If you are the kind of guy who hates himself and likes to be called a misogynist every time he turns around, go for it, afterwards you can go watch Teeth and The Taint.

The propagandists need to stop planning their reviews before filming is done and start letting the sheep make their own decisions.

And oh yeah, if you don’t buy the party line hook line and sinker you must be a racist, rapist, misogynistic jingoistic capitalist swine.

Sorry men, they don’t make films, textbooks or television programming for you anymore, but they do throw in some explosions and hope that satisfies.

No fish were harmed in the making of this post in case any whiny environmentalists and fish rights activists are watching.

Yep, people are racist because of the evil ess Jay dubyas screaming racism.

No, movies aren’t made for men at all anymore. Never mind that all the best picture Oscar nominated films were about men and by men this year. Furiosa ended all men forever!

Haha’s post is the most rational thing I’ve ever seen in my life.

It’s true. The KKK were wonderful people who had friendly barbecues and picnics until people called them racists!

@ Mikki nope, the sexual violence is referenced, but not shown. It’s wonderfully respectful.
