Right-wingers are once again throwing a fit over a seconds-long snippet from a Disney cartoon. Last time it was a blink-and-you’d-miss-it kiss between middle-aged lesbian moms in the Toy Story sequel Lightyear. Now it’s a trans man in a trans flag t-shirt recommending his favorite brand of menstrual pads to a puffy inflatable robot in the new Disney+ series Baymax.

The other day, a fan of Jordan Peterson went to check out the subreddit devoted to the fusspot psychologist and right-wing culture warrior. The fan was a little confused when he discovered that the subreddit was filled, not so much with discussions of Peterson and his works, but with endless posts about trans people. So he asked why.
Women sure do love drama, amirite fellas?
That, in a nutshell, is one Men’s Rights Redditor’s explanation for the popularity of feminism amongst women. These women don’t give a shit about abstract ideas like equality and justice; they just get a rush from playing the victim and pushing feminism on hapless men.
Men’s RIghts Redditors’ ears are spouting steam in the wake of the latest outrage from Google.
Uh, what exactly is the latest outrage from Google, you ask? According to a fellow called rabel111, the internet behemoth has declared “war on men and boys.”
It’s time for another of our weekly looks at the world of “woke” — the all-purpose insult that’s the right-wing’s new version of so-called political correctness. Right-wing ideologues (and Bill Maher) are still railing about the allegedly “woke Olympics” and the evils of “woke capitalism.” But there are a few other examples that caught my eye this week.
Natural News is a health site gone bad, given over to New Age quackery and right-wing conspiracy theories. It won’t shock you to learn that the people running the site aren’t exactly big fans of the COVID vaccine.
“Drag Queen Story Hour,” DQSH for short, is pretty much what it says it is: A drag queen goes to a library and spends an hour reading stories to children. The idea originated with queer writer and activist Michelle Tea in 2015, and right-wingers have been having fits about it ever since, seeing it as a vile propaganda tool that’s “normalizing degeneracy” and luring children into the LGBTQ lifestyle. One right-wing Christian activist likened the events to “mental rape.”
Over on the MGTOW subreddit, the regulars are once again getting mad about the fact that some women expect men to pay for dinner on dates.
Porn, “lustful music” and “vulgar clothing” are lowering men’s “vibrational state,” angry New Age no-fapper declares in epic dumb rant

If you’ve ever wondered what the “precious bodily fluids”-obsessed General Jack D. Ripper from Dr. Strangelove would sound like if he were, like, really into crystals and auras and shit, well, he might sound a bit like this dude I found in the Semen Retention subreddit today, warning his fellow semen-retainers of the alleged spiritual war being waged against their good vibrations.
Reddit misogynists blame Jews for Lady Thor, predict imminent collapse of civilization

I guess I owe an apology to Reddit’s contingent of Men Going Their Own Way. In the past I have suggested that MGTOWs spend all day every day talking shit about the women they’ve supposedly declared their complete independence from.
