a voice for men MRA yeah that's the ticket

Yeastward ho! A Voice for Men heads in a radically yeasty new direction

avfmyeasty

Yes, that’s right: the top “featured article” on A Voice for Men today is titled:

Unique yeast evolutionary events made lager beer history

The post in question — reprinted from examiner.com — is an example of the bold new direction for AVFM that site founder and chief tantrum-thrower Paul Elam announced proudly a little over a month ago, and which, he explained, was proof of AVFM’s great success in “chang[ing] the public narrative about sexual politics.”

AVFM has apparently done such a great job of this whole narrative-changing thing that the site is now able to just reprint random articles about crap from examiner.com and declare them to somehow have something to do with men’s issues and men’s interests. I mean, it’s not like AVFM is desperately casting about to gain additional traffic without doing any actual work or anything like that.

This post about yeast raises the bar even further. Having succeeded so completely at changing the discourse for human men, AVFM can now begin to change the discourse for YEAST MEN as well.

Presumably AVFM will soon be announcing its new name: A Voice for Yeasty Men.

Might I suggest a slogan? YEAST RISING!

Or maybe THE SON RISES IN THE YEAST!

I got a million of them, Paul. Call me!

epitome of incomprehensibility

@Pandapool – yeah, a lot of beer I don’t like, but I don’t mind some microbrewed stuff or darker coloured beer like Guinness. (My friend claims I’m just a snob about drinks – but I’m not sure I know nearly enough beer to be called a snob.)

Er… I meant “enough ABOUT beer.” But yes, I’m not that well acquainted with beer. I don’t take enough time to stop and chat with it. Or flirt with it, like this guy:

CPK ☺ Charles Kincy (@cpk)

Looks like they’re trying to horn in on the buzz created by Inverse?

To be perfectly candida, this is mashandry. Everyone knows yeast evolved to seek out sugardaddies.

That just means you’re a natural snob, like myself. You have the taste buds of a true snob*, but never bothered to cultivate the corresponding ranks in Lore [Beer].

*: The natural beer snob will invariably chuckle at the old joke comparing American mass-produced beers to having sex in a canoe.

Who approved that as the title for the piece? And it’s so short, it reads like an answer to some trivia question rather than an article.

Maybe it was just reposted to make a sly dig at Roosh?

Don’t worry Pandapool. There are many ways to follow the misandry brick road. Do you have tattoos? Do you ever light a scented candle? Do you ever say no to sex? Do you ever say yes to sex? I think you’re doing fine at misandering.

That Amy Schumer clip has a warning about nipples but there were no nipples, just glory hole beer.

What can we say, katz? We were born in bread to make puns like these!

Lemme guess: Paulie thinks that beer is made by stomping wheat and barley (and all the other grains) with his sweaty, fungus-y feet? Or that beer-drinking is something unique to men, and all the girls should stay out of the brew pub?

I got news for ya, Paulie: Agriculture was most likely invented by women. With an eye to brewing a steady supply of beer (which was also most likely invented, or discovered, by women).

Don’t you mean LIQUID FUCKING GOLD? We don’t give that stuff out like it’s water, you know…

(…even though it IS mostly water!)

Great yeast puns, everyone, you all rose to the occasion.

And we’re just getting started. Or should I say warmed up?

Hey, that coconut coffee drink that Starbucks has taste like Almond Joy so if anyone is into that go get it. Or, like, crumble up some Almond Joy in your coffee someday.

Bina, that was fascinating reading, and next time I get into a Changeling: the Dreaming game, I’m seriously gonna consider a female Boggan brewmaster….

I think that Paulie and his ilk would be horrified to find out that some of the first brewers, mazers (mead-makers), and vintners were feeeemale. I have a book that actually talked about the history of it, and that women–being the caretakers of hearth and home and the primary cooks–cultivated wild strains of yeast and made bread and alcoholic beverages.

Ack! Historically, there are girl cooties on the dude’s favorite beverage. Misandry!

I’d need to look for that book. It’s packed away with the rest of my stuff that I don’t intend to use until after graduation…

*sputters* I’ve avoided the Blockquote Monster, but I italicized the wrong part of Bina’s statement. D’oh! *facepalms*

Fun factoid: The surname “Brewster” comes from the Old English for “female brewer”. The job (and the -ster suffix) were both specifically feminine.

This whole article and talk of beer makes me hungry for bratwurst.
