If you've seen a beer commercial in the last two years - and how can you avoid them?

A DVR?

My great great grandpa was one of these guys about 100 years before the idea men could be emotional was acceptable.

fark YOUR ARTICLE!

Wow, that is the most sexist thing I've ever read. So, basically the whole fault is that men aren't the dreamy, sophisticated, sensitive yet omnitalented archetype the author expects us to be. I really feel this was written by a college sophomore who's had her world crushed learning we aren't all Edward from Twilight (i.e. not a fantasy of female imagination) and now is lashing out with the big words and general concepts she learned in her Womyns Studies classes.

Also, if we're just going off of beer commercial stereotypes, shouldn't all women just be morons with nice tits?

Yes! I've been advocating for the return of the lout, for years.

Testify, louts!

The article is only half right. What's missing is a discussion of the loutishness of America's young women. The entire article could be rewritten showcasing the media's promotion of irresponsible juvenile behavior, poor clothing/liquid refreshment choices, and lack of empathy from the other gender.

I'd say they deserve each other.

Turning off the TV and reading a book?

I think that is against the law in Los Angeles.

This eliminates most farkers

Hmmm, no byline. Wonder what the author looks like? Anyone care to investigate?

Aren't they?

I like broad generalizations.
Or generalizations about broads.
 
2011-02-13 09:44:51 AM
Sounds like someone's regretting that one-night stand with a lout.

Loutishness of this caliber is ruining society and causing women to have compulsive disorders.

/don't drink beer

They cant be talking about me... i farking hate the taste of beer & nothing puts me to sleep faster than watching sports.

Quit confusing Madison Avenue gender definitions/identities with reality. It's annoying and comes off as whiny and shrill.
 
2011-02-13 09:50:46 AM
This author sounds fat.
She probably watches the CW too
 
2011-02-13 09:51:20 AM
I'm surprised females took enough time off from themselves to even notice. She can't see his beer past her colagen duck lips and fake torpedo tits. Sounds like they are made for each other. Now he can daterape her and they can have little Dakota and Caiden and we can read about the precious snowflakes four years later in some lawsuit vs the school system because someone took away Dakota's cell phone in a Kindergarten classroom.

/It's not life it's fark.
 
2011-02-13 09:51:52 AM
I read about half way and have no idea what this author was talking about. Points were contradictory and the only documentation was some vague references to beer commercials.

Im guessing somebody is having a bad breakup and wants to turn it into a cultural phenomenon
 
2011-02-13 09:52:20 AM
Read article and like it but understand how it is a feminist lashing itself

Misogyny has a flip side. Misadnry. This article exudes it.

BOOM! WE DID IT!

There may be some truth to this... but if so, it doesn't say anything good about women. After all, if the women of the world decided that the only way to get into a girl's panties was to be able to write an excellent sonnet, then University English departments would be giving lectures in stadiums, Men's magazines would be filled with articles by poets, and Shakespeare would be perpetually on the New York Times bestseller list.

Basically, if men are being louts, then it's because women aren't making them be otherwise.
 
2011-02-13 09:55:12 AM
Sounds like an high schooler who finally drew attention from a guy who's learned to take the pussy off the pedestal. Welcome to the real world cupcake, now go get me another beer.
 
2011-02-13 09:55:23 AM
Yeah she pretty much is going by "judge the book by its cover" here. Wine makes you sophisticated, and beer makes you a lout? Really?

I did RTFA, but my brain translated it as follows:

I am an ugly harridan who can't get laid because I'm a shrill coont. All you men are worthless because you don't fit into my extremely narrow view of the world.

FTA: with a beautiful and adoring girlfriend

Emma Watson or Sarah Palin don't count as girlfriends.
 
2011-02-13 10:01:34 AM
By insisting that women are good for one thing and one thing only and that they have a very low priority in a man's life otherwise

Ten sentences later:

Men don't want sex

Arrrgh this is why I always lose my arguments with women.
 
2011-02-13 10:01:49 AM
Attention is to women what sex is to men.

This is the fundamental theorem of sexual relations.

So, if you give her too much attention, she has no inclination to give you what you want.

/ladies, if you want guys to be nice to you, you have to reward them w/sex when they do instead of when they act like jerks
 
2011-02-13 10:02:32 AM
FTA

"He seems to be a form of passive-aggressive revenge against what some men see as the indignities feminism has forced upon them - indignities that have been exacerbated by economic hardship."

Nope. He is a form of man that emerges once he realizes that women provide little benefit to him outside of sex.

fta Producer-director Judd Apatow, whose movies include "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" and "Knocked Up," deserves some small credit for the incipient development. Apatow's films have featured nerds and slackers who just hung out and indulged themselves, drinking, smoking dope and ruminating about guy things, but there's a catch: Apatow portrayed them this way not to celebrate loutishness but to emphasize that loutishness had to be abandoned if one was to embrace adulthood with all its benefits.

And those benefits would be... ?
House work
Raising the kids
No disposable income
No motocycles
The end of whiskey and cigar poker nights
Loaded diapers
Potpourri
Doilies

2011-02-13 10:04:32 AM
This certainly explains the rash of the attention whoring women out there the last few years.

*covers head and runs*
 
2011-02-13 10:04:55 AM
yeah, this article glosses over the fact that an entire generation was put into ruin by blaming men.

She did say basically the same thing in context
 
2011-02-13 10:06:44 AM
When are you a "lout" and when are you "a guy who just doesn't give a fark?"

I played the game when I was younger, but I'm more about intelligence and conversation now a days. The kind of girl that is described in the commercial I wouldn't want to be with.

The bar scene ain't worth it anymore.
 
2011-02-13 10:09:03 AM
Reading between the lines, I believe this woman's biggest problem is that internet porn has lowered her bargaining power in relationships.

But that's just my take.

THIS (Emphatically)

I grew up Southern Baptist. Every year it was a running joke with my pop and me about how Mother's Day sermon was devoted to praising under-appreciated moms while Father's Day sermon was for berating men for being deadbeat dads.
 
2011-02-13 10:12:09 AM
shiat like this makes me bitter as a man. The feminism movement made me think that i was wrong to want to be manly when i was growing up. Anything ideal that preaches hate should not be taken seriously. Women like this focus on the differences in life rather than trying to see the commonality.
 
2011-02-13 10:13:02 AM
The reason men get away with it is because there are more than enough desperate women willing to take it.

Fifi Le Pew: The article is only half right. What's missing is a discussion of the loutishness of America's young women. The entire article could be rewritten showcasing the media's promotion of irresponsible juvenile behavior, poor clothing/liquid refreshment choices, and lack of empathy from the other gender.

That too.
