She needs to shut her whore mouth and make her man a sammich. Of course, a woman like that - with her own opinions about things - probably has a biatch of her own to make her sammiches.

Did she just accuse Fark of being worse than Cracked?

Come on guys, don't be sexist. biatches hate that.

What the fark is wrong with you? Sluts hate being called biatches.

As for her complaining about regardless of how intelligent, educated, qualified or awesome at post writing we are, a great swath of men see us only as the sum of several preferably silicone-enhanced or injected parts

...anybody know her Fark login?

This chick obviously doesn't know about the "Wieners" tag.

The writer, David Wong, points out some notable pop culture examples of the trope of entitlement, saying:

"We were told this by every movie, TV show, novel, comic book, video game and song we encountered. When the Karate Kid wins the tournament, his prize is a trophy and Elisabeth Shue. Neo saves the world and is awarded Trinity. Marty McFly gets his dream girl, John McClane gets his ex-wife back, Keanu "Speed" Reeves gets Sandra Bullock, Shia LaBeouf gets Megan Fox inTransformers, Iron Man gets Pepper Potts, the hero in Avatar gets the hottest Na'vi, Shrek gets Fiona, Bill Murray gets Sigourney Weaver in Ghostbusters, Frodo gets Sam, WALL-E gets EVE ... and so on."

Wong concludes:

"So it's very frustrating, and I mean frustrating to the point of violence, when we don't get what we're owed. A contract has been broken. These women, by exercising their own choices, are denying it to us. It's why every Nice Guy is shocked to find that buying gifts for a girl and doing her favors won't win him sex. It's why we go to "slut" and "whore" as our default insults - we're not mad that women enjoy sex. We're mad that women are distributing to other people the sex that they owed us."


Let me know if pandering to feminists works any better than the gifts thing.

I guess the whole Rush/Sluts conversations were just our way of lulling Farkettes into a false sense of complacency?

Actually, as websites like this go, Fark is nowhere near the sausage party as a lot of those sites. You know what you call the girl at a Something Awful gathering? The waitress.

Half the Farkers that I've met in person are female. Strong opinionated gals too, who hold their own.

Are there asshats here? Unquestionably. Are they asshats in person? Quite possibly. Do a lot of the asshats who troll, actually believe the drivel they post up? Not as much as folks might think.

Real life isn't politically correct. Sometimes, when you have friends, you joke with them on issues that might otherwise be sensitive if outsiders did it. I get a lot of Jap jokes at work. I get a lot of Low Irish humor too. Does that mean my co-workers are racist scumbags? Not in the least, and a sammich joke amongst friends, or flirting amongst friends doesn't mean that you hate womenfolk.
 
2012-03-31 10:46:44 AM  
If I hate women so much how come I keep so many of them in my basement?

Its a labor of love, you know. You try getting a full night's sleep with all that screaming and begging to be let out.

I find that very acceptable. Life is full of little trade offs.
You want dessert? You'd best be icing my cake, if you know what I mean.

Some of my best friends are women.

Well to be fair that was the first time I saw farkers talk about women in a truly positive way. The rest of the time it's all rape jokes, comments about "hittability" and the evils of attention whoring. The constant barrage of assumptions that women are callow money grubbing cock teases is the norm here. I do not recommend this site to my female friends and I purposely chose a gender-neutral screen name.
 
2012-03-31 11:30:53 AM  
I have all the women on ignore but I hear good things about them.

The only thing I can say is if I had a dollar for every time one of you assholes referred to me as "he" or "him", I wouldn't have bothered playing Mega Millions last night.

But seriously, this is really not some woman-hating hive from hell. You just have to have a layer of skin that's thicker than a tissue and not take everything so goaddamned seriously all the time. And there are quite a few of us chicks who have managed to swing that for the past decade or more. Too bad the poor author couldn't hold her own.

Look, I'm not going to apologize for God giving me a penis.

I'm offended that she doesn't think we're feminists.

I, for one, love watching two chicks do it

You've got to flip the sh*t right back or run away crying. Pretty simple. I'd much rather deal with that than some vapid b*tches talking about how those pants make her look fat or obsessing about fake tanning gel, he said she said, etc.

I hear ya but whether or not the author could "hold her own" isn't really the point is it? Just because it's not a "woman-hating hive from hell" doesn't take away from the fact that it is a heavily male dominated forum.

Yep - and thats why I tend to hang in the poli forums. They are actually less misogynistic than the other areas of fark. Poli junkies hate everyone equally.

Also, hobby sites. Depending on the hobby, either 100% sausage or 100% hen.
