(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 61

/Must be nice

the ha ha guy: I am completely aware of what a few prominent members of the republican party have said, but that does not mean their views are official party doctrine, or even held by the majority of republicans.

When Rush Limbaugh, the de facto voice of the GOP, has a full nine hours total of calling Sandra Fluke a slut for testifying in her capacity as an advocate, that  might be a hint as to what the official party doctrine actually is.

Just maybe.

/And all the  other times they've  openly said that...
//And Yogimus? Do you know what a straw man argument is? Hint: If you claim the GOP doesn't support a position, and I point out that it in fact does, I did not actually comment on anything they do when the R button isn't sitting on their lapel. I'm sure they're all nice, wonderful people who respect women and the gay couple down the road when they aren't acting as Republicans. I'm just commenting on what they do when they're not at home.

From the article: Emily recently wrote an ode to selfies, noting the role they play in her own fight to maintain high self-esteem.

"I am ashamed as a feminist to admit that while I champion vanity in women, I find it kind of off-putting in men," Emily told me in an email. "I'd rather a man be thinking about how pretty I am than worrying about how pretty he is."


"That's some good feminism right there, Lou."
"But Chief, don't you know, certain holes can only be filled by a man."

Pretty much this. But sometimes it's fun to have to be disciplined by your mistress because you've been a bad boy and you know it.

Women can't be sexist because they're the oppressed, not the oppressor.

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.

Gyrfalcon: the ha ha guy: 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.

As a woman, I have a hard time dealing with angry feminists who think that all men are out to get them.

Men just aren't that smart.

Oh_Enough_Already: 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.

quatchi: "The more selfies a guy has, the more obvious it is he craves validation," my friend Lindsay said. "The more validation he needs, the less likely it is that any one woman will be able to give it to him."

I think that actually works for both sexes. Vainglorious people with a constant need for attention are emotionally high maintenance as a rule and it doesn't matter really if they are a guy or a gal.

That noted, I've often heard women say that they have no interest in spending time with a man with whom they would have to compete with for the bathroom mirror. So there's that.
