antifeminism misogyny poll PUA red pill return of kings transphobia

POLL: Which of these things from Return of Kings’ front page is the absolute worst?

Normal human reaction to Return of Kings

It’s poll time!

I’m not sure the thumbnail captures the full transphobic awfulness of the graphic for option number three, so here it is full-size:

In case you’re wondering, Saddam is not actually mentioned in the story.

If you haven’t guessed by now, I voted for option 3, though the car seat one is lovely as well.

Here’s an archived link of Return of Kings’ front page as of today, in case you want to read any of these posts. I didn’t bother.

Is there an all-of-the-above option?

What the fuck do they have against car seats?

I’m going to vote for the one that suggests children are being *coddled* from car crashes.

My dad’s car seat was a couple of loops of heavy gauge wire and a canvas sling. The only thing that kept it in place in Granny’s late-40s, early-50s car what didn’t have seat belts, neither, was that the wires looped over the back of the bench seat.

My car seat was forward facing and actually buckled into the bench seat in my dad’s mid-70s Chevy.

It’s a wonder I’m here.

Tough choice, but I voted for the trans panic one.

The car seat stuff is a close second, but the trans panic is more likely to result in people getting hurt and killed.

Two theories for #4:

1) If kids were Real Men they would be the size and weight of grown adults and would not be at increased risk in car crashes. Pussification has shrunk children to their current size.

2) If parents were Real Men they wouldn’t worry about their children dying in cars, because Real Men don’t care about anyone, not even their own helpless children.

Edit: I actually voted for the one from the guy who thinks women are the same as pets, but they’re all pretty despicable.

Of all the myriad of behaviors that these fools bloviate over, the behaviors which seem to inflame them the most are the behaviors which, if they ignored them, would make no difference at all in their lives.

Leave people alone, you idiots, they’re not bothering you in the least.

I did read the articles, and yes they’re all abhorrent.

However, all but number two are fantasy, manosphere wet dreams about how terrible the world has become. Good Lord we dare to put kids in car seats?!

Sadly, treating women as you would a dog, “master and slave” as it’s described, is a reality faced by billions of women, to varying degrees, worldwide. And this is a how-to guide for continuing this assault on women, and indirectly on rational, caring, loving men too.

For me, there’s no question which is worse.

Sigh :/

Had to go with number 3. What the fuck does any of what they were complaining about even have to do with Sadam Hussain?

I voted for the fourth one.

The third one is extremely offensive, and I can see people arguing it’s even more offensive than the fourth one. But the fourth one isn’t just being petty, mean, vindicative ; in addition to that, it’s showing that you’re a Darwin Award in the making. It defy basic common sense. It’s putting the safety of you own children after your political positions.

Also went with 3. Almost went with 4 but 3 won out for the same reasons leftwingfox mentioned. Plus wtf with that photoshop?

I was torn between 2 and 4. Comparing women to dogs is always horrible (but not unexpected from RoK), but what is the problem with car seats?

I went with 3, because I have trans* friends and loved ones, but I wish I could vote for 4 also, because those trans* friends and loved ones have young children.

I went with 4, not because the others weren’t terrible, but because the wtfery of 4 drew me in and wouldn’t let me go.

Went with 3 because of biases and stuff. But all of them made me nauseous, so it’s a wash overall.

I rolled my eyes at the car seats, because I’ve been around complaining about them so much. Usually from people my immediate age and older who did not grow up having to sit in them.

as in, “We grew up without car seats and we were JUST FINE”

But many of us were not fine and the ones who died are not here to complain about the nanny state.

I knew a woman when I was growing up who was driving with her son in the front passenger seat. She made a right turn and the door flew open. He tumbled out and was hit fatally by the car behind her. She blamed herself and lots of other people did because he wasn’t wearing a seat belt. But in the 70s, lots of people didn’t wear them.

But I voted with Sigh :/ for much the same reasons. I’d add that they sound like they abuse their dogs, too.

@Falconer Same here. My father had a sixties volvo sports car, that kind of looked like a ufo. Whilst the back seats were in better condition, they too lacked seat belts.

So every time my father braked hard he had to throw out his right arm and catch me and my brother as we flew towards the windscreen. Seriously hated riding in that car.

I voted for number four, after seriously pondering number three (for looking like the new decade’s answer to the ludicrous “gay recruitment” conspiracy theory), because apparently it’s manly to endanger your children, lest they become betas. This is bullshit, of course; my alpha-posturing younger brother always rode in car seats.
