The Evil That Lies In The Hearts Of Men: doyner: kmmontandon: Ooooh, pictures.

I thought the title had to do with masturbation, and "selfie" was some new hipster term.

That's what I thought.

Thanks, Judgeabel.

Likewise.


Yup.

Just selfies?

After reading Jezebel, one can come to the conclusion that any and all of the endless number of behaviors which women hate men for engaging in, including, but not limited to:

philandering, watching porn, drinking, cheating, fighting, risky non-committal sex, rape, murder, throwing recyclables in the garbage, driving too fast, farting, eating too much, peeing on things, animal abuse, infanticide, matricide, patricide, smoking, rape, spousal abuse, cruelty to animals, voyeurism, exhibitionism, shyness, gregariousness, hermetic-ism, being a gadfly, homosexuality, bisexuality, asexuality, having sexuality, enjoying sports, reading books, playing video games, going out doors, staying in doors, and looking out the window.

are, when women do them, empowering, fantastic, unique things which should not only be celebrated, but are worthy of their own cable show.

If by "selfie" the asshole writer means me taking a photo of my vag, it will never happen. I am not that stupid and besides if I guy I want to be with wants to see it (or touch it or lick it or f*ck it) he has to do it in person -- no digital devices allowed.

When it all comes down to it, the writers (and commenters) at Jezebel are among the most stereotypically  fashion-obsessed, shallow, vain, emotional, hysterical, irrational, catty, and, ultimately "female" people on the internet, all the while somehow ostensibly maintaining the illusion/delusion both to themselves and to the outside world that their site and the views espoused thereon are somehow the antithesis of all of the above.

The amount of compartmentalization and cognitive dissonance coursing through their offices on a daily basis is likely enough to keep a legion of psychiatrists wealthier beyond their wildest dreams for a lifetime.

Rich Cream: Men care about what women look like, so women care about what women look like.

Women don't care what men look like* so when a man cares what he looks like he's vain.

*to a point, grooming goes both ways

It's what a man does that matters. Not how pretty he is.
  /nothing like good, old, ageless sexism



Actually I do care what a man looks like. Always wondered why men have so little interest in their own appearance, so it seems it is because they mistakenly think we don't care. Some people get it though - see  starlost's comment above about  laying on the couch drunk and smelling like tacos with my beer belly hanging out while watching sports- that is really not a good look, and yet some men either don't realise or don't care. The problem is so few men trouble themselves with their appearance at all that women don't have a lot to choose from, which is why you often see the good looking woman with a slob. Sometimes it's because he is rich though, that's true.

Also thought this was going to be about masturbation, and that 'empowerful' was a word used by people who don't realise it should be 'empowering'. I guess I must be old.

I was hanging out at the beach yesterday.  I saw two or three absolutely stunning girls in string bikinis... tossing around a frisbee with their boyfriends, a bunch of hairy, balding former fratboys with potbellies and five o'clock shadows.

I can't imagine those girls were dating those guys for their looks.

This is a guy hated by many Jezzie commentors as he's a former self-confessed "kinda' guy we hate" (i.e. straight white alpha male)  who, while he was a college teacher admitted to regularly bedding his students, including three of them while on a trip one weekend, etc, (basically the kinda' person doing the kinda' things Jezebel loves to harp on as part of the "rape culture of the misogynistic patriarchy whargarble, etc) but, since he had his "come to Jesus moment" some years back, they've embraced him and sanctified him as the bright shining  example of a "man who's come to his senses" as he's one of the few penis-owners in America willing to write routine anti-male invectives as often as he does.

(Something which I have no doubt he's doing only to get into the panties of the Jezebel staff, and something which I also have no doubt they let happen, and enjoy the hell out of, but would be loathe to admit to anyone as it would undermine the very bedrock of their position and mission.)

The Repulsive Vanity of the Male Self-Portrait
by: Hugo Schwyzer

So let me get this straight... an author with a dude name writes an article that makes fark boys yell about biatches and coonts. way to go subby
 
2013-03-10 07:48:37 PM
Did any of you actually read the article?

My reading is he is not condoning this at all, Even the "self-indulgent, vain c00nt" that OgreMagi (stay classy, dude) quoted above admits that she is "ashamed" that she thinks this way. The article also mentions that body dismorphia is rising in young men and that this is not a good thing.

This article really is not as man-bashing as you all seem to think.

My conclusion: you men-folk are too sensitive to internet criticism, you need thicker skins.

female vanity is pretty normal as women are so often judged on their appearance. a lifetime filled with commercials and advertisements shoving it down their throats doesn't help either.

guys that have to constantly check their look in the mirror i cannot be around. male blatant public self-love is too much to take.

few weeks ago a guy in a SUV was driving right at me in my lane well after he made a turn. he was thoroughly engrossed in checking himself out in the rear view. dooshbag.

You would have thought this was empowering. That men are just as prone to being self-conscious about their image as women. That men are adopting coping techniques to feel big and strong and impressive to deal with their self-doubt and feelings of inadequcy. Just because you're in the patriarchy doesn't mean you're not fragile.

Leave her alone, women are naturally so weak that any self guided action without the help of a man is empowering.

Hugo Schwyzer? Isn't he that guy that feminists hate for being an attempted murderer or something? Then again, Jezebel were the people who published that "HAHA DOMETIC VIOLENCE IS TOTES HILARIOUS WHEN WE DO IT" a few years ago, so perhaps they're made for each other.

The #1 reason women hate vain men is because the more time men spend looking at themselves, the less often women can complain about being ogled and "eye raped" and such, especially considering the amount of time they spend at the gym, the hair salon, etc making themselves as ogglable and eye rapable as possible. If they can't get outraged by the attention they set out to generate, where's the payoff? Whar?
