(Jezebel)   One thing feminists agree on, when a woman takes a "selfie" it is empowerful, when a man takes one, it is vanity, repulsive and a sure sign of infidelity and neediness   (jezebel.com) divider line 387

Oh_Enough_Already: 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?

PsiChick: Has  anyone read the article? Anyone? It's the one at the top of the page, where they  actually say it's a double standard and wrong, because, stunningly enough, feminism has always held that sexist beliefs are as damaging to men as women, which TFA has a  great example of.

/Of course, for the average person in this thread to understand feminism, they'd need basic literacy first...


They also have to understand that the popularization and turnabout of certain aspects of feminism is a detriment.  That feminists don't want more rights than men, they want a fair starting place, and those that who do want more rights aren't into equality.  They believe feminazis just want to flip the gender roles: have one gender dominate the other unfairly, and then lash out at the dominant force.  Maybe some do, and maybe that's the track feminism has taken right now.  But it's not the original belief, that - to paraphrase you - what benefits women also benefits men.  Let's try to get back to that.

It's not the track feminism has taken even remotely, actually, most feminists are focusing on things like the ME or getting a sane number of women\minorities\generally non-turtle people in our government. It's starting to become the  economic trend for low-income areas--girls are more likely to be breadwinners, try to be superwoman, guys are more likely to live off girlfriends--but that's not actually an application of any sort of feminism.

Part of the problem is people like this:

PsiChick: feminism has always held that sexist beliefs are as damaging to men as women



TFA comes from a site where one of their editors slapped a man who told her he had cancer, because she assumed that his type of cancer was made-up.

Somehow, I'm not so sure these people are advocating the "all humans are equal" form of feminism.

And when Fox News actually manages to report things accurately, then we discuss the actual content of the article, not imaginary content based off a quote given in the article.

It's probably worth mentioning that Jezebel's particular brand of feminism - this culture-warring kind of feminism - is fueling a backlash from a lot of men. Some places on the web now are just crawling with so-called MRA's (men's rights advocates) who read this kind of stuff and get whipped into a paranoid frenzy.
I find it tiresome and the domain of very insecure men, but I still take their side over bullshiatty misandry that Jezebel and the tumblr set pimps out.

I really don't think we are going to be ushered into an age of gender enlightenment by the efforts of people who use terms like "turtle-people" to refer the the opposite sex. If it's a fight you want, you'll get it, but don't try to dress it up as intellectual or clever or enlightened. It's not.

Tak the Hideous New Girl: 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.

They're totally the oppressor as soon as they get the upper hand. Plenty of abused husbands out there.

Hell, even in Asia, where women traditionally get the shaft by Western standards and workforce integration is still difficult the traditional marriage paradigm is very similar to Chris Rock's comedy bit about divorce.

Accurate reporting implies that facts are being reported accurately. TFA being discussed has no such facts , it is an opinion piece on a second opinion piece.

If this were a report about some peer-reviewed scientific study, then yes, it would be a bit rude to ignore the content and attack the messenger. But TFA is nothing but opinions, so I do feel that other opinions held by the same source are completely within the context of the discussion.

I know you're joking (you charming rogue you), but sadly there are many people out there who sincerely believe that society is comprised of permanently fixed oppressor vs. oppressed groups -- when they should be recognizing the obvious fact that anyone (regardless of their sex, race, class, religion, sexual orientation, etc.) who oppresses someone else is an "oppressor" in that particular situation, and that anyone (again regardless of their sex, race, class, religion, sexual orientation, etc.) who is "oppressed" by someone else is oppressed in that particular situation. --This is merely common sense, but God knows there are people out there who would claim that common sense is a tool of oppression as well.
