Not really. It's not far fetched at all to say that the mistreatment of women by men, whether unintentional or otherwise, originated in the minds of men, I was just being very snarky about it. I just think the article does a good job at identifying and articulating something that seems, to me, to be fairly obvious.

I need to put a sticky note on my screen reminding me not to read comments on game articles. My blood pressure goes up everytime I read about girl gamers faking it for guy attention.

"Ugh, look at this girl gamer whoring for attention!"

"Why are there so little girl gamers?"

Often from the same people. The delusion is so thick, you can cut it with a chainsaw.

Sad because it's true. More often than not the root of it is small men trying to rationalize why women don't fawn over them.

IT WASN'T EVEN A MANS HAT TO START OFF WITH.

Sad I own the most awesome favulous Indiana Jones fedora, and I am so annoyed that this is what has become associated with the buttheads. The style goes so well with my head shape.

A standard stereotypical association that started with how people sort of noticed that fedoras were an oft-seen element of Nice Guys. That something inherent to how people became mockable stereotypes of the Nice Guy mode of thought were so habitually inclined, with a high degree of correlation, to that look..

Tumblrites immediately ground the association into the dirt with its standard unrestrained shame culture and inability to notice the irony in casting a wide net of aspersion over how people choose to dress.

AND LO WE COME TO TODAY

Though I seriously as an aside have to wonder why so many men got into trilbys all at once, was it some sort of also-ran second wave passdown from early hipster waves?

I think fedoras look nice on people, as long as it doesn't come paired with cheeto-stained shirts and scruffy beards.
