Remarkable women:

Mom

Paternal and Maternal Grandmother (raised 24 kids between them)

Aunt June

Betty Crocker

Sara Lee

Dolly Madison

The lady who does my shirts and gets the creases right with just he right amount of starch.

My sister-in-law when she makes her most excellent meatloaf or lasagna

My accountant-bless her. Too bad she is retiring

Oh and the lady who walks by my favorite restaurant once or twice during the week at lunch hour. Always well dressed, sexy but not slutty . Her appearance always make a so-so day much better. She does her part to keep America beautiful.

Well it makes sense, kind of.

Who cares about a bunch of (insert any group) celebrating themselves? Isn't it better to get a pat on the back from someone other than yourself?

Now, what they *should* have done is have a woman *with* those guys. Maybe one could have his hand on her shoulder, both of them beaming with pride. Maybe there's two women hugging! Rubbing the back, that's good. That's right, its ok, its ok. Now lean in and smell her hair..

bunner: Car_Ramrod: Please stop turning us against you.

Well as long as any loose definition proffered by any woman anywhere on earth is etched in stone and, eventually, it's my fault.  Feminism isn't anything anymore on any level that promotes anything resembling social justice.  It started out as a very useful, long overdue and worthwhile social movement and it is now a T-Shirt, a board game, a handful of hate filled screeds full of gymnastically stated and self-promoting ideological venom, and mostly, an industry.  It moves money around.  And when those trying to promote global feminism pack up the manifesto and move en masse to countries where women really are treated like chattel and brood mares and dirt beneath the feet of men and start slapping the sh*t out of the people who treat them that way, I'll resubscribe.  Until then all of the repetitive pissing and moaning from a tastefully decorated 3 B/R flat over a lattè and a MacBook Air is just that.


So you're saying misogyny is no longer an issue in this country? That all the topics feminism discusses have been solved? Whew, what a relief! Thanks for the update! I forgot that since women aren't being treated (at least not on a widespread basis) as literal property, American feminists are wasting their time! What high standards we've set for our country! U-S-A! U-S-A!

Your little rant says a lot more about you than it does about feminism. There's no need to be so angry and spiteful.

Should we make a thread about the "dumb white man" trope that persists in every. single. advertising. medium. on earth?

Cause that one never gets old.
Oh look, the stupid incompetent child-man father cut the grass with that old rusted mower, now his eternally patien highly intelligent wife needs to take him to home depot to a sale only she heard about.


THIS.  Enough about misogyny. What's really important here is that the triumphs and travails of white men aren't celebrated every minute of every day.

KhamanV: WhippingBoy: Feminism has taught me that I should be ashamed to be a white man. I think I'm going to "accidentally" crush the ol' cobblers in some sort of industrial accident.

/I hate myself

You got the wrong lesson.  You have nothing to be ashamed of; you got lucky - you're in a great place where many people are going to subconciously think better of you even if you do absolutely nothing about it.  You're less likely to be passed over for jobs, you'll find it easier to get loans (nothing for free and you will have hardships!  It's not a perfect system for everyone).  People will look to you for ideals of how they picture Jesus and popular action heroes and what they'll put on video game covers.  It's pretty cool, actually, and it's going to make a ton of shiat easier for you that you could in all likelihood never have to think about.  It's totally under your radar because it's just how life is for you.

All anyone without that privilege - another color, another gender - wants is for you to take a moment when you see something go a different way for someone else when it wouldn't have for you and go "Whoa.  That sorta sucks.  That's unfair.  I just want whoever that is to be treated like me."

Nobody wants to take the privilege of being a white dude away from you.  They just want to make it a little easier being born a different way.

bunner: Car_Ramrod: Feminists hate patriarchy. We do not hate you.

If I Admit That 'Hating Men' Is a Thing, Will You Stop Turning It Into a Self-Fulfilling Prophecy?

If you "break down and admit" something, would you stop acting like it's insulting that you should even have to admit it and then somehow manage to immediately state, "well, it's all men's fault anyway" like something deeply meaningful just happened?  So far, my best guess is "*tsk* whut UVER!"


So you missed the point of the article. There are some rare instances of women hating men. Just like there are cases of men hating women. But those outliers do not define the feminist movement. But if you do define the movement by a few random women being mean to you, then you'll be more angry at women, which will get them angry at you, and thus the self-fulfilling prophesy.

Most feminists don't hate men, as a group (we hate thesystem that disproportionately favors men at the expense of women), but - congratulations! - we are starting to hate you. You, the person. Your obsession with misandry has turned misandry into a self-fulfilling prophecy. (I mean, sort of. Hating individual men is not the same as hating all men. But more on that in a minute.) Are you happy now? Is this what you wanted? Feminism is, in essence, a social justice movement-it wants to take the side of the alienated and the marginalized, and that includes alienated and marginalized men. Please stop turning us against you.

WhippingBoy: You're right, but you missed some of the following privileges:

A greater likelihood of ending up homeless.
Much higher rate of suicide.


Feminists do not want you to commit suicide. Any pressures and expectations that lower the quality of life of any gender are part of patriarchy. The fact that depression is characterized as an effeminate weakness, making men less likely to seek treatment, is part of patriarchy.

Much greater likelihood that I'll be expected to actually fight in a war.

Feminists do not want you to be drafted and then die in a war while we stay home and iron stuff. The idea that women are too weak to fight or too delicate to function in a military setting is part of patriarchy.

More opportunities for intense physical jobs that will slowly destroy my body and send me to an early grave.

Feminists do not want you to be maimed or killed in industrial accidents, or toil in coal mines while we do cushy secretarial work and various yarn-themed activities. The fact that women have long been shut out of dangerous industrial jobs (by men, by the way) is part of patriarchy.

Presumed guilty until proven innocent in domestic disputes.

Feminists do not want women to escape prosecution on legitimate domestic violence charges, nor do we want men to be ridiculed for being raped or abused. The idea that women are naturally gentle and compliant and that victimhood is inherently feminine is part of patriarchy.

In any case, eow exactly do you know what it's like to be me? Check your privilege, sister. Check your privilege.

Feminists hate patriarchy. We do not hate you.

How many men in the Men's Studies program?
Oh that doesn't exist.
So 8:0 that's an infinite ratio.

WHAT ABOUT THE MEN?  Won't someone please think about the men?!

I'm the libbiest lib that ever libbed, but my point wasn't to act like men are oppressed, my point was that this whiny college chick has created a bogus argument.


Fair enough from the point of statistics, but the point of overeager social justice would like to mention that many general course loads are men's studies.  :P  Sort of like the 'lol why no white history month?'  Because we got the other 11 months, the bulk of entertainment television, the bulk of video games, movies, etc, etc, etc... it's wearying to see.

Which is actually an argument against patriarchy and the sort of thing actual feminists fight against - bullshiat gender roles based on bullshiat concepts perpetrated throughout bullshiat history, all there to help men not get that sort of doofus Chevy Chase stereotype bullshiat either.  Crazy, I know.
