Pledge Drive: Begging Cat Gif Edition!

Please, kind human can you spare a ha'penny?
Please, kind human, can you spare a ha’penny?

Welcome to the Somewhat Belated Second Quarter Man Boobz Pledge Drive 2014: Begging Cat Gif Edition!

To repeat my simple pitch from my previous pledge drives: If you enjoy this blog, and can afford it, please click on the “donate” button below and send a few bucks my way. Or, if you’d prefer, a lot of bucks. You don’t need a PayPal account to donate; you can use a credit card, and there are other options as well. If you’re outside the US, PayPal should be able to handle your weird foreign money.

Oh, and the PayPal page will say you’re donating to Man Boobz; don’t panic! That’s just the old name of the blog.

Your donations, big and small, are all greatly appreciated; they keep this blog going, quite literally. My cats thank you too, as they also get a cut, mostly in the form of cat food.

Big thanks to everyone who donated during the last pledge drive. (If I didn’t get back to you personally, I apologize; I know I missed some of you.) Thanks as well to those who’ve donated since the last pledge drive, and to those especially generous souls who donate on a regular basis.

And if for whatever reason you can’t donate, that’s fine. I understand being broke.

I always use these pledge drives as an excuse to brag about page views, and I’m not going to stop: We Hunted the Mammoth has now received more than 15 million page views since its inception as Man Boobz on Blogger in 2010. And you all have posted more than 400,000 comments. Which is kind of staggering, really.

To all the MRAs out there who think I write all the comments here, really? THERE ARE 400,000 OF THEM. Lots of them talking about stuff I don’t even know about! Because the commenters here rock!

Giant Blinking Thanks! (Pledge Drive is Over)

kitty_lover_thank_you_animated_gif_595x335_by_juleesan-d5b1e4h

I just wanted to offer a giant, ridiculous, blinking, kitty-filled THANK YOU to everyone who donated in the Man Boobz Pledge Drive this week, whether your donation was big or small. If you didn’t donate, but meant to, here’s another chance — and you can always donate through the button in the sidebar.

I truly appreciate your support; it makes a tremendous difference to me, both financially and psychically, and helps me to keep this blog going. And of course many of you support this blog in many other ways — from contributing to the comments section to emailing me tips on misogyny you’ve spotted in the wild — and I appreciate this dearly as well. You rock. Thanks again!

Here are some more kitties, because it’s Friday night and what the hell. And some dogs. Dogs are ok, too, I guess.

Welcome to the First Quarter Man Boobz Pledge Drive 2014: Fluffy Cat Rolling In Money Edition!

To repeat my simple pitch from my previous pledge drives: If you enjoy this blog, and can afford it, please click on the “donate” button below and send a few bucks my way. Or, if you’d prefer, a lot of bucks. You don’t need a PayPal account to donate; you can use a credit card, and there are other options as well. If you’re outside the US, PayPal should be able to handle your weird foreign money.

I appreciate any and all contributions. Of course, if you’re broke and can’t swing a contribution now, I understand. Really.

Your donations — and other forms of support –keep this blog going, by keeping me going. (Yes, the money goes to me. And my cats.)

Enormous thanls to everyone who donated during the last pledge drive. (I know I didn’t get back to everyone personally, and I apologize.) Thanks as well to those who’ve donated since the last pledge drive, and extra special thanks to those who’ve made a point of donating on a regular basis.

Man Boobz has now received more than 13 million page views since its inception on Blogger in 2010. Even more impressive: you all have posted close to 400,000 comments. The community that’s grown up around this blog is, as always, amazing to me. I couldn’t do it without you.

Pledge Driven: Thanks for your support!

This was the worst gif I could find. You’re welcome!

I’m winding down the 2013 Man Boobz pledge drive, Part Deux today. It’s gone well. Big thanks to everyone who donated! And if you haven’t yet, here’s another chance:

Of course, you can feel free to donate at any time with that little button in the sidebar. The pledge drive is really just me nagging for a couple of days.

In any case, I appreciate all your donations, big and small. And all the ways you, my readers, contribute to this blog. Thanks again!

PS: Can any of you explain what’s happened to that poor mouse’s feet? I’m a little worried.

Man Boobz Pledge Drive: Begging Cat Edition

Welcome to Part Two of the 2013 Man Boobz Pledge Drive! (There will be 3 in all.)

If you enjoy this blog, and can afford it, please click on the “donate” button below and sending a few bucks my way. Or, if you’d prefer, a massive quantity of bucks. You don’t need a PayPal account to donate; you can use a credit card, and there are other options as well. If you’re outside the US, PayPal should be able to handle your weird foreign money that doesn’t even have any US presidents on it.

I appreciate any and all contributions. That said, if you’re broke and can’t swing a contribution now, I completely understand. There are lots of ways to contribute to this blog besides cold hard cash — as anyone who’s checked out the comments here knows well.

Your donations — and other forms of support — have kept this blog going through some tough times. At the time of the last Pledge Drive, I was broke and, frankly, more than a little discouraged, and the outpouring of support from you all made an enormous difference to me. I’ve been a bit tardy — in many cases  very tardy — in getting back to people individually with thanks, but I really do appreciate the help. Thanks as well to those who’ve donated since the last pledge drive, and extra special thanks to those who’ve made a point of donating on a regular basis.

I’m not quite as broke now, but I can still use whatever financial support you can give. Thanks again!

Man Boobz has now received some 11 million page views since its inception. Even more impressive: you all have posted more than 300,000 comments. Which is amazing to me. I couldn’t do it without you.

If you really want to get into the Pledge Drive spirit, here’s thirty minutes of a 1980 Pledge Drive from PBS’s Detroit affiliate WTVS:

Thanks for the support!

High five!

Just a quick note to let you all know that the response to the Man Boobz pledge drive has been amazing. I am once again humbled by the outpouring of support.

Thanks, everyone, for the donations! I appreciate each and every one of them, big or small. (Sorry I’m a little behind in sending out the personal thank yous; I’ve been sidelined a bit by migraine this week.)

Given how well it’s gone, I’m going to wind the pledge drive up a little early this time, and stop with the naggy reminders, because I know how annoying those can be.

Thanks again, everyone!

Oh, just one more naggy reminder, and that’s it!

MRA founding father Warren Farrell responds to questions about his incest research with evasive non-answers. And a smiley.

Watch out: He has a Ph.D!
Watch out: He has a Ph.D!

The Man Boobz Pledge Drive continues. See here for more details, or click below to donate.

And now back to our regularly scheduled post:

Warren Farrell, whose 1993 book The Myth of Male Power essentially set the agenda for the Men’s Rights movement we know (and don’t love) today, did an “Ask Me Anything” on Reddit yesterday.

Most of the questions he chose to answer were pretty much softballs, and his answers largely reiterated things he’s said before many times. But he was also asked some pointed questions about his views on incest which he chose to answer. Well, sort of. Instead of clearing up the issue, he dug his hole a little deeper.

[TRIGGER WARNING for incest/child abuse apologia.]

Man Boobz Party Time President’s Day Pledge Drive!

Party on, dude!
Party on, dude!

If you aren’t too worn out by all the Presidents’ Day revelry — and the ritual Donning of the Fake Lincoln Beards — I would like to welcome you to the first edition of the 2013 Man Boobz Pledge Drive! (There will be 3 in all.)

I’ll try to keep this brief and repeat what I said last time: If you enjoy this blog, and can afford it, please click on the “donate” button below and sending a few bucks my way. Or, if you’d prefer, a massive quantity of bucks. You don’t need a PayPal account to donate; you can use a credit card, and I think there are other options as well.

There’s a bit more urgency to my request this time: I’m really and truly broke at the moment. Things should get better later in the year, but right now I could use all the help I can get.

I appreciate any and all contributions. And I’d also like to do a quick shout-out to the those who send me much needed $ between pledge drives, whether these are one-shot deals or regular infusions.

That said, if you’re also broke and can’t swing a contribution now, I completely understand. There are lots of ways to contribute to this blog besides cold hard cash, and lots of you contribute enormously every day with smart and funny comments and cartoons and silly parody MRA posters and so on and so on. Which is awesome. It’s the community here that keeps me going.

So thanks!

Oh, and if you need more persuading, here’s Tom Baker (no, really) begging for bucks during a PBS pledge drive.

Pledge Drive Update. And a gigantic helping of kitten!

Just a quick update on pledge week, the most important part of which is: THANKS! I’m impressed with your generosity, and grateful for the support. Every donation makes a difference.

If you haven’t yet donated, and want to, or you’ve already donated but suddenly decided that I need even more of your money, here’s the magic button:

Special commendation to the people of Australia for going above and beyond the call of duty. I had no idea I had so many readers down there. Good on ya!

Should dating advice be a boys-only club? One self-described Omega Virgin says “yes.”

NOTE: Man Boobz Pledge Week Continues! Big thanks to everyone who has donated!

If you haven’t yet, and want to, here’s the button you’re looking for:

The Men’s Rights blogger behind The Black Pill – formerly known as Omega Virgin Revolt – has made it his life’s mission to bring down the Pickup Artist movement, or at least the part of it that overlaps with the Men’s Rights movement online. Not because “Roissysphere gamers” are misogynist assholes who preach a mixture of manipulation and date-rapery to their readers. But because, in his estimation, these guys are promoting a “Misandrist Dating Advice Distraction (MDAD)” that convinces poor oppressed men that they can solve their problems by manipulating drunk hotties into sleeping with them – thus distracting them from the much more important goal of destroying feminism.

No, really.
