Is the Asinine tag on vacation? Jezebel isn't about being feminist, well at least not normal sane person feminism, it's about looking for shiat to be offended about and calling it feminism.

I read a fark thing the other day about some woman complaining in jeze about how guys need to stop man-sitting on the bus cause it's unfair to women.

Seeing how the top article on their homepage right now is a sponsered link to purchase a handbag, followed by an article about Chris Brown losing his virginity at 8 years old, with an article about "The Government Shutdown Is Crapping All Over Adorable Animals," I'm thinking it's satire or suffers from the common internet affliction of unwarranted self-importance.

Most people would think that a 14 year old girl having sex with 8 year old boy is molestation or rape.

Jezebel considers that Smashing the Patriarchy, one link at a time.

Yeah, dumbest thing ever. Guys have a hang low that needs some space ladies, that's why we sit with our legs open a bit.

But the article was just about people on public transits who are assholes about seat space.

It does?

I mean, sure, men do have certain advantages in our society, but when people vomit terms like "patriarchy" and make it sound like it's a big bad conspiracy to keep women down they end up making fools of themselves...

Yes, I know the original meaning of patriarchy and I know it exists. It was just common sense at the time. I'm talking about the re-purposed definition used by sites like Jezebel.

So what's their plan? Establish a matriarchy? Should go to the Tibet then. They have a matriarchal society.

It's when a man sits in front of a woman, pulls his dick out, straps a Clockwork Orange helmet to her face and forces her to watch him masturbate.

Yeah, it doesn't exist.

There is no invisible sky faerie that makes gives to all men the empowered, meaningful lives and careers with high pay, power, and prestige at the expense of women who are kept barefoot, naked and pregnant in the kitchen.

It is an unscientific, non-testable theory.

Question: in 40 years of academic feminism, how many papers were filed with the title, "An investigation into the patriarchal foundations of X"? And how many were filed with the title, "We examined patriarchal foundations of X, but could not find any."

You'd have to be a complete farking idiot to examine the lives of quiet desperation most men AND most women lead and then believe there is any sort of patriarchy, organized or disorganized, keeping women down in this country.

Don't be a complete farking idiot.

Oh, I believe in it, and I believe that people like the contributors at Jezebel enforce it via hypocrisy and looniness. I can't remember if it was either Wonkette or Jezebel, but one of those thought it was perfectly okay to mock a celebrity's looks, just so long as it was a male celebrity.

"man sitting"?


It was a blog full of images of men wearing pants so tight that they stood no chance of being able to sit comfortably while on the bus or train and otherwise taking up more space than they needed to. Missing in the blog was any mention of the women shown sitting in the exact same positions as the offenders.

Jezebel taught me that every time I've technically "raped" a woman by watching a commercial with a woman in it, I should cut my dick off.

You know, being a white-knighting beta male is not going to get you laid with these types of women. Despite the fact that your micropenis resembles a clitoris.

You mean exists as in some Illuminati-esque cabal? No, I don't. (Otherwise things like the right to vote, own land, have a job, or even go to college without their father's/husbands permission, would not exist.) Do I think that there are parts of society that are mail-dominated? Yep. Churches being the biggest ones.

"Patriarchy" is like Greys and Lizardmen. When people rail about them I know they have nothing of value to say.

"man sitting"?


Yes, because it's ok to name phenomenon with sexist generalizations like "man sitting," as long as the gender being stereotyped is the male gender. Of course, saying something like "woman logic" is still regressive bigotry.

Oh, it exists all right... in f*cking Saudi Arabia. Women are more than fairly compensated for "male privilege" in western society with asymmetric but equal-value female privileges. Like male privileges, women rarely acknowledge the existence of female privileges because they are blind to them. Female privileges create an atmosphere of noise that blends into the background of women's lives until they imagine that the world just looks that way to everyone. If women could spend a day as a man, they would be shocked at how rude and indifferent the world is to us. We might have one or two close friends who show up to help us move or change a flat tire when we're stranded. We have to train ourselves to be the best of the best cocky funny alpha men, or else spend our nights huddled over the glow of a computer monitor while a handful of guys are out there dating all of the women. No one invites us to parties or wants to talk to us unless they are selling something. Don't downplay this; it legitimately adds up to a great deal of stress for many men, and is perfectly worth the modest extra income we get.

The problem with feminists who rage against "male privilege" is that they only look at Donald Trump and imagine that that's what life is like for men. They never consider the bloke who is hacking it 7:00 to 3:00 at a factory, paying child support to his ex.

And even if it existed, what good would it do me?  It's true that throughout history it has been predominately male figures running the show but that meant very little to the 99.9999% of males who aren't in the ruling cabal.  They were just fodder to plow the ruler's fields and fight their wars.  It's kind of like saying men have some super big advantage over women because each one is born with a single lottery ticket while the ladies are not.

I can only stand a dose of that sort of thing from time to time. They remind me of old guard communists who blame everything wrong with the world on capitalism. Completely intolerant of any dissent from their dogma.

Jezebel: a crappy site for whiney self-proclaimed "feminists" who blame everything on men, whine about trivial issues while ignoring real ones, and then wonder why they don't have a date.
