You're really bad at detecting satire, aren't you?

I mean, she comes right out and says multiple times that she's making fun of another article that did a similar thing, but for cupcakes and women.

Can you blame them? Given what floats around on the web, especially on sites like tumblr, someone could have easily written this with 100% sincerity. That's why the term "social justice warrior" or "SJW" was coined because those people write things exactly like this satire but, like I said, are completely serious about it. So, how can you tell what's real and what's fake? It's like Poe's Law but for the far left.

Sometimes, people call what they write "satire" even though they firmly believe every word they say. If anyone calls them on it, they just use the "just kidding" defence. This is the height of intellectual dishonesty.

I used to think so much more highly of Farkers. Yet here it is: 17 of the 23 above posts offering an opinion, express distain-- often mysoginistically-- for a "womYn's" article... which is a CLEARLY STATED eye-rolling satire on an anti-cupcake invective penned by some dude!

Y'all are some stupid people.

It's not women and cupcakes that are out of control, it's women and office parties.  It's a scourge that needs to be stopped.  I swear there are people at work who set these parties up just so they have an excuse to eat cake.

Do yourself a favor and don't comment on criticism if you can't even be bothered to read the article.

FTA: "In the end, women eat with their eyes. Men eat with their loins. If it is permissible to employ women's insecurity as an argumentative device, I can only assume men who eat burritos are compensating for something."

hmmm, cracking dick jokes. So yeah, I can say with certainty that her attempt was satire by exaggeration and humor. It's still not funny. And you aren't as clever as you think you are.

I think the problem is that this article is so dead-on with the serious feminist insanity that enjoys an audience on the so-called liberal media outlets that this attempt at insanity is, actually, indistinguishable from the way feministas actually think.

See the recent "men need to close their legs on the subway" article.  I think it was from Salon.


Yeah, but Poe's Law really doesn't apply when the article in question IS ON THE HUFFPOST COMEDY PAGE!!!

Think about how bad the average Farker is at telling what's sarcasm/satire, and then realize half of 'em are worse at it.

I hate that quote, whether with regard to intelligence (where it's usually used), or hear because

AVERAGES DO NOT WORK THAT WAY. *morbo.jpg*

MEDIANS work that way. Averages do not.


Assuming a normal distribution of scores in the population, the mean, median, and mode are the same value.  IQ, specifically, is deliberately designed so that the distribution of intelligence scores assumes the shape of a normal distribution.  And given the large number of variables that conform to the normal distribution, one can assume that satire detection sensitivity would as well.  So your statistical outrage fails.

A burrito is just a form of sandwich for ingredients that would fall out of the two-slabs-of-bread kind. Reading anything else into it is either waaay overthinking it or desperation for a topic to get one's editor off of one's back..

Is it possible that burritos, like cupcakes, just taste awesome irrespective of the chromosomal make up of their consumers?

It's quite possible. But nobody says you have to EAT cupcakes. Instead, you could squash the cupcake between your breasts and watch the icing squirt out from between them and run down over your naked body. Then . . . slowly . . . rub the icing over your hardening nipples, you naughty, NAUGHTY girl. And then, for eating the last cupcake, you would of course, have to be punished. By me. And I, um . . . completely lost my train of thought there, but the POINT IS that cupcakes are really, really good.
