Quote:

A quick editorial cartoon about the intersection of self-pity, entitlement, rape, territoriality, misogyny and fear of women. You see it all over the place online in the form of Menís Rights Activists (of whom there are a few reasonable non-misogynists), Men Going Their Own Way, Pick Up Artists, and dudes touting the ďRed PillĒ, because The Matrix is a good movie. Look any of these up if you have the stomach for it. These are extreme examples, but watered-down forms of these ideas are everywhere.

In lurking their blogs and youtube channels for a while, Iíve noticed that beyond the standard patriarchal chauvinism there is this deep fear of women - what they will do to me, how they will reject me, how they will use me, how they are changing society in a way that does not favor me, how they are making men into something I donít like, how they are making themselves into something I donít like, that they wonít give me what I want, and that they wonít give me what I think is rightfully mine. This goes beyond fear of feminism- this is fear of women at its purest. And that, to quote a puppet, leads to anger and hate. Itís sad.

I am a feminist. I think thereís enough ice cream to go around, but it does mean those of us with 3 scoops might have to give one or two up. Also, The Matrix is a fun movie but probably not anything you should be basing a philosophy on.

Like seriously I went ahead and looked at the "red pill" shit and it's just frankly on the razor's edge between evoking pity and disgust

like these people are flat out fucking mental and sad, but in a way which makes it really hard to care about them as human beings

they just absolutely have to export their problems with women to anything that allows them to externalize and project it. like, man.

I don't get why A Voice For Men isn't illegal considering they go out of their way to send rape and death threats constantly.

Why aren't men ever raped in horror movies?

They are but only by sexy seductive temptresses or weird bug aliens who want their man-powers.

Yinello didn't imply they should be, just asked why they aren't.

My partner brought that film up as well. But the alien in that one is looking for sperm, right? That's a man-power.
