MGTOW wonders: If words can be microaggressions, is dressing provocatively “microprostitution?”

Our top scientists are working overtime to develop microprostitutes

By David Futrelle

You’ve got to give Reddit’s Men Going Their Own Way credit for one thing: They are constantly coming up with inventive new ways to hate women.

On the front page of the MGTOW subreddit today, with 146 upvotes and counting, we find the “shower thoughts” of one fellow who is evidently outraged that women keep causing a commotion in his pants by parading their bodies around in public without adequate shielding.

Shower thought: if mere gestures and words can be "microaggressions", then isn't dressing in a revealing way, titillating, a form of "microprostitution"? (self.MGTOW) submitted 8 hours ago by yellow_black IMHO, instagram should change it's name to microprostitute.com

Aside from the fact that “microaggressions” are actually, you know, small-scale aggressions, while wearing a scoop neck top is not actually a form of sex work, he’s hit the nail right on the head!

Naturally, Reddit’s MGTOWs offer their own little improvements to yellow_black’s hypothesis.

JediFapArtist 3 points 3 hours ago It’s not even microprostitution. The only thing they have to barter for male attention is their sex appeal, so they are prostitutes in the truest sense of the word. Nothing ‘micro’ about it ;-)

throwaway19992923 4 points 4 hours ago I'd say that "micro-indecent-exposures" is more correct. Women's clothing today would be considered how a whore dressed before the 60s.

I guarantee that if this guy were sent back in a time machine to the 1950s, he’d be losing his shit over women in tight sweaters. There’s pretty much no way to win with MGTOWs.

Once again, a man projects what he wishes were true onto women.

Cause see, if we all were sex workers, he might be able to buy our time.

Is a shower thought like fridge logic, but more soapy?

Wearing revealing clothing is microprostitution?

Does she somehow take a dollar from guys’ bank accounts each time they look at her?

@Mish

I would take credit for it, but it’s just too obvious. It’s just too obvious how much men wish that they could flash a hundred dollar bill and have any woman agree to fuck them for it.

If men could just stop, like for the next hundred years, I think that would be a decent down payment on the interest they owe all of us.

@APG

If she is somehow doing that, I want to add that to the list of superpowers I wanna have, up there with shapeshifting, invisibility, and pyrokinesis.

I was wondering why it was that every time I show cleavage in public, all the men who pass me by give me all their loose change. I never knew I was microprostituting!

Wait, if this is true, then why doesn’t it happen more often? I mean that sounds like an easy job. Just walk around with a skirt and all of a sudden men will throw their cash and checkbooks at you.

I’m a plump teenager with something of an acne problem, including between my breasts. I get the feeling that were they to see me wearing a low-cut top, they’d lose their shit–and not about me wanting their muns. (I love sweaters as much as the next person, but it’s not even Labor Day yet. I’d smolder with every step.)

On a side note, there’s an open mic thing at the local independent coffee shop tomorrow. I’m planning to do an a capella rendition of “In The Garden” by the Red Vox (mostly because I don’t have the audio track and last time I edited the vocals out of an audio track it sounded bad). Wish me luck.

These guys don’t need to worry much about micro-aggressions. They’re much more likely to engage in macro-aggressions.

Good luck. Nice poem in the thread behind this one, too.

Now, concerning this post, I have to laugh at that one MGTOW’s user name: JediFapArtist. Jesus. All sorts of images flood my brain when I contemplate it.

I’m guessing he needs microprostitution to match the size of his dick.

I almost wish I could make these guys take a “History of Fashion” course, but I don’t think their boners could handle it.

OT:

Sometimes I wonder why we see misogynists’ ideal society in media like The Handmaid’s Tale and in stories that randomly incorporate misogyny, but we never see a feminist’s ideal society in our media. It’s like some kind of bias telling us what we should and should not think is realistic.

Over under on how many years after the 1960 that guy whinging about degenerate, modern fashion was born?

While I would agree that misogynist ideals are very frequent in media, especially in distopian science-fiction or fantasy work, there is a few well known example of feminist ideals in the very same media. The Federation in Star Trek or the Jedi Order in Star Wars can be considered institution that espouse gender equality. A lot of artists and media still gender their product. Thus, a work aimed at young men for example will probably portray women as object of desire, fantasm or cruel, manipulative villains (sometime all three together).

My guess would be that he was born at least 30 years after 1960.

I like 50’s dresses as much as anyone, BUT PEOPLE CAN LIKE OTHER THINGS AND I DO TOO.

@epronovost

The issue with the Jedi Order is that there are very few or no women on the Jedi Council, and there are very few or no force using women who are anything more than side characters. The Expanded Universe (Mostly written by men, for men) as explicitly establishes misogynistic crap as canon, but then all that’s non-canon now so…

and the issue with Star Trek is that the Federation is as misogynist as they come simply because most of the women on the show (Especially in the first show) are written to support misogynist views. They’re both attempts, or can be seen as attempts, but I can’t view them as successes in portraying a kind of society a feminist would consider to be a good society.

Avatar: The Legend of Korra could be seen as a success – women are in all kinds of roles, at all kinds of ages, with all kinds of stories and characterizations and nobody bats an eye because there’s nothing to discuss about it – okay, fine, I found an example of a success.

Upon reading this, I’ve concluded that robots of all types must be protected from human beings.

My new head cannon for Terminator is that Skynet’s first human interactions was with MGTOW’s.

I mean, I don’t understand why they do this. It seems so counterproductive. As a reasonably perverted straight guy, I like seeing women in revealing clothing.

What in the world is the point of shaming people for doing what you like them doing? It just seems to be a general tendency among these fools.

Is it true that the only thing I have to barter for male attention is my sex appeal? I’m not sure how much male attention I want. I’m not sure I understand what he means or what his issue is. I thought sexy clothes were a “fun” thing for most men to see women in. I always hear dudes going off about how sexy people are in certain things, etc, and a lot of bars have dress codes for their female employees to wear skimpy shit. But then, at the same time, it’s an issue for him and proof of some sort of strange manipulative powers we have? Because the whole objectification thing I’m sure is something we came up with. I just woke up one day and instead of wanting to become a doctor or a lawyer I thought “I’d strongly prefer to be a sex object so some dude I don’t know can drive himself crazy in the shower with both passion and rage over the power I have over him.”
I’m not feeling great today. I’m feeling hopeless about my future.
