What we learn FTFA

1. The Oakland Sister Circle is real, who knew.

2. Feminism has token male feminists (sounds rather sexist):

3. Feminists are easily seduce and manipulate on message boards it would seem

4. Feminism is a space for women only. Men only get involved to benefit themselves. (which by extension would seem to call into question the credibility of every male politician who supports the feminist agenda.)

5. For some reason there are men who want sex with a feminist

6. Macktivists have an anatomy

The Internet has made it easy for a crop of men who call themselves feminists to creep on unsuspecting ladies

That was easy long before the internet. farking kids always think they invent everything.
 
2014-07-25 08:09:14 AM  
Just in case, feminists shouldn't have sex with anyone attracted to them.

Don't you f*ckers remember Lilith Fair? Those guys didn't go to the concert because they liked Paula Cole.

Wouldn't this also apply to various hipster douchebags?

This. Every single guy at a take back the night rally had a scheme to nail some chick. The sensitive guy technique of "understanding the plight of womyn in the patriarchy" is not new.

Pretending to be a feminist sounds like part of the D.E.N.N.I.S system.

My question is, why in the shiat would a guy like that wantto date a feminist? Those dudes are always the one telling me I'm gonna die a crusty old spinster because I want to get paid as much as a dude would for my job.

There's plenty of patriarchy-brainwashed wannabe trophy wives out there who'd LOVE to cook and clean for you and never have to have an original thought again. Go bother them and save everyone involved some trouble.

(FWIW: there's plenty of non-token space in feminism for men -- I know several -- but only if they can manage not to make it all about themselves. Same goes for white/straight/cis people in POC/LGB/trans activism...)

Why? Have you seen feminists?
Shudder
 
2014-07-25 08:50:57 AM  
There has always been an unctuous and beyond creepy element to male feminism.  Lest we forget, Ted Bundy wrote a pamphlet on rape prevention.

A friend of mine took "Psychology of Women" in order to meet women.  He slept with two girls from the class.  It worked well.

hasty ambush: What we learn FTFA


Given your posting record on FARK on the topic, what we have learned is that no one at all should listen to you on any matters pertaining to second or third wave feminism due to the fact that you want to equate anything related to the word feminism with fringe groups, and do so with an agenda that you don't even bother to hide.

Because most feminists are freaks in the sack and like to be dominated sexually behind closed doors.

Exactly. It's just an extension of pretending to like things that girls are into so you can sleep with them.
"Uh, yeah sure. I love silent Russian cinema and incomprehensible French movies. I'd much rather go to that film festival than play Madden with my friends and get drunk then call you when I want sex."
It's like the author never went to college.

Many feminists are like many other activists, fickle and prone to situational justifications for doing things their fellow activists would frown upon.

They also like getting laid, because they're human.

theflatline: Because most feminists are freaks in the sack and like to be dominated sexually behind closed doors.


Wow. Nothing about that at all sounds creepy or pathological in nature.

You do realize that you sound like someone that most people with even a fraction of experience in BDSM would stay away from talking like that, right?

I totally agree, I can't believe there are people out there like that!

I would love to hear more about this, wanna grab some organic fair trade coffee at this little independent cafe I know?

That article tries to freshen up an old story on the internet: creeps will pretend they are someone they are not to achieve something they should not have. Thanks Salon.

New? Pretending to care about whatever broads yammer on about is a tried and true method of getting laid.

#WomenAgainstFeminism on Twitter has pissed off a lot of feminists, lol.

But that is really stupid. I mean, it's not like they won't find out you are a male and thus, a rapist pedophile evil person in their eyes

And this. Feminists aren't just a bunch of man haters. And of course there are "less devoted to the cause" hot and earnest girls who just want to make a positive difference in the world, and if some niceunderstanding guy has sex with her, great!

...and some guys wonder why they'd be looked at suspiciously at those events. Fox in the henhouse, man.

Yeah, but I was more wondering about the guys' motivations. Why would you go to that much trouble to sleep with someone whose core values you despise and who probably feels similarly about you?

It's probably just "trick the stupid feminist," though, and I've never been able to wrap my head around the brainspace of people hurting others for fun. I don't delude myself into thinking it's not extremely common, just can't actually grok the mindset required.

No one. I just like pointing out how terrible people with terrible ideas on the world justifying their (mis)treatment of the female gender based on them.

media.tumblr.com

But in case you're not actually trolling and are serious,  hasty ambush is one of those that wants us to think every person who supports or is part of the feminist movement is a clone of Dvorkin.

Ivandrago: It's like the author never went to college

.

Thank you. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought that.

And from what I remember from my college years, pretending to be passionate about the cause du jour isn't nearly as effective as saying "Well, I can see where you're coming from. I think you're taking it a bit too far, but whatever. Sure, I'll come to your (event). I may not support your ideology 100%, but I support you as a person."

People like being treated as people. Who knew?

OneTimed: So it's either feminist or stepford wife. Got it.


No, there are plenty of women in the middle. I just figured guys who want sex so bad they're willing to fark someone they deeply fundamentally disagree with would be best off going for the lowest-hanging fruit, as it were.
