What I love about Manboobz is their comments often aren't about the topic itself. xD

Also much respect for Suzanne Minter for having to deal with a family and dumbasses like her ex.

Am I the only one thinking how ironic it is that there are Korean men complaining about their women wanting too much when so many of the western MRAs want an asian woman because they think she'll be subservient to them?

Also wow skimmed the comments on that article, I'm sort of impressed at just how similar they are to the kinds of comments on english language sites. Like if I didn't know they were taken from a Korean site I would have thought they were from an english online newspaper or something.

In my experience an asshole is an asshole, regardless of ethnicity or nationality.

Korea's gender issues are a much harder and cutting social issue than what we've got over here.

Korea is an incredibly High Power Distance culture, where there are strict and steep degrees of social heirarchy and a lot of ritual and demand placed on people to adhere to proper respect of who is "higher" than them and what they are owed by social subclasses.

And, unsurprisingly, men are traditionally considered higher and it is not the place of women to challenge men's social rank in a myriad of ways. Modern Korea confronting these problems as they move their gender relations forward has resulted in a predictably demented traditionalist backlash.

I could only imagine the extent of misogynist attitudes generated by it.

funny, I skimmed down the front page of that reddit just now and all I saw were things like

*anti-circumcision activism
*complaints about society's relatively lenient attitudes towards female-on-male rape (to the point where it's not even called rape!) and sympathy for the victims
*an article complaining about the poor treatment a two-year-old boy wearing a pink headband received from some violent fucktard at WalMart
*sympathy towards male victims of domestic violence

WHOAA UR TOTALLY RITE THZ PPL ARE HORIBL AND THEY WOULD TOTALLY BE POSTING THIS STUFF IN THE FEMINISM REDDIT INSTEAD IF THEY WERE OKAY PPPL wait no, fuck you.


or maybe I'm just not looking at it on the right day maybe they're just as awful as the redpill jerkwads most of the time maybe, or maybe I didn't read deep enough and if I'd actually read through all of the posts I would have seen deep systematic substantially-worse-than-feminism things running through absolutely everything without exception maybe, or maybe you actually meant to link to the redpill reddit but instead linked to that one by mistake, maybe maybe maybe
or maybe you're just an asshole

Well, I like you, ShadowCell, and I acknowledge that I have done that on one occasion, and possibly on others if you refuse to accept my explanations and expect some further wall-of-text out of my lazy ass, but I do not feel that that is an accurate description of what I've posted today.

I'm sorry HR. I tried to find a video of everyone singing around a campfire in a cheerful way about hating each other, but this was the closet thing I could find. ;_;

Yeah, but you've also done that when threads aren't steeped in sarcasm and dickery, so it can be hard to tell at times.
