Carrie Fischer isn't going to be a lead. I assume she will have grown up to be a Jedi Knight as well.

Does anyone know if there's a more recent article/essay similar to this? I would be interested to know what the statistics are now, if they've gotten better or worse.

Hmm... nearly 20 years old so I see why you'd like a new source. I can't think of one off the top of my head but I could directly to a blog where somebody probably would know.

http://www.shakesville.com/

Wait until their open thread (usually starts by 9am EST) and then ask in there, linking to your article.

I'm surprised people are so skeptical about it, I know it's clickbait but if you've ever read any volume of things written by MRAs that's exactly the kind of thing you'd expect from them on a date.

At one point, he described himself as a "red pill."


I'm really glad I learned what that is because I now know that's the kind of people to stay faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar away from. In the end I can deal with MRA but redpill is a whole gaggle of getthefuckoutery.

As always quality shit in the comments are to be found.

I've learned to play dumb when other men I know start talking about red and blue pill bullshit. I like to see what shitty idea they're going to try and sell me on.

I find it kind of irksome that the article conflates the two


but, of course, nowhere near as irksome as the existence of such an individual


especially since the association isn't entirely without basis

not that old, and it should be required reading for people like the supreme court and the owners of hobby lobby.

guys, it's obvious that hobby lobby is secretly owned by the same shell company that runs most of the nation's abortion clinics. the decrease in the number of abortions has been seriously cutting into profits so they masterminded a scheme to increase the abortion rate by denying women contraceptives. it's really quite brilliant when you think about it.
