The problem with irony, is that it's so often used unironically, ironically enough.
 
2014-08-08 04:52:27 PM  
The author doesn't understand what irony is.

Probably listened to too much Alanis.

This is quite possibly the worst animated gif I've seen in years. Appropriate, but horrible nonetheless.

Do people who vaguely remember "sardonic" from high school vocabulary lists think "ironic" must be close enough? Does "sarcastic" have too negative a connotation? Either of those seem a much better fit for almost everything called "ironic".

"The men who get annoyed by misandry jokes are in my experience universally brittle, insecure, humorless weenies with victim complexes," while the "many intelligent, warm, confident feminist men in my life ... mostly get the joke immediately and play along. They're not worried I actually want to milk them for their tears."

Yet when men make these kinds of comments about women we get HR complaints, called assholes, ridiculed as insecure woman haters and so on. Why is it that when women do it, we are expected to accept it because it is "in good fun" or ignore it because it is "just the fringe"?
 
2014-08-08 05:04:37 PM  
Interesting.

I've been told numerous times by feminists that misandry isn't a thing.

But I guess it's now fine to hate a group based on characteristics outside their control.
 
2014-08-08 05:04:39 PM  
There is no such thing as ironic clothing. If your t-shirt slogan is ironic, I don't know that.

Years ago I was in a clothing store (American Apparel) and I overheard two guys talking about some bright pink trousers.

"Do you think I could wear these ironically?"

I wanted to tell them that it doesn't matter if you're wearing pink trousers ironically or not. You're still wearing pink trousers. If you're cool with that, buy them, wear the pink trousers because you like them and are proud. Don't hide behind bullshiat irony, because it's meaningless to the observer.

/I wonder if I can wear this KKK outfit "ironically"
// NO

Fish in a Barrel: These women sound like dicks.


Really? I find this kind of stand-pigeontoed-and-throw-like-a-girl "feminism" kind of appealing, like freckles and an overbite on a crosseyed Irish schoolgirl.
It's kind of a modern version of Marylin Monroe in Some Like It Hot, acting like she had an IQ of about thirty.
It's cute.

All in good humor, but I doubt they would feel the same way when men joke about women.

Speaking as a man, I really give zero farks if women are having some fun and being misandrist. We've been misogynistic as a rule for pretty much the rest of human history, so it seems pretty whiny to complain when the shoe is on the other foot. Just sack up and deal with it.

I had this conversation with a friend of mine the other day.  Her sexual self enjoys having a strong male there to guide and direct and take control of those situations and take the pressure off of her.  Last night, she mused on this and suggested that this made her a 'bad feminist.'

I pointed out that the whole point of feminism was to give women the chance to choose how they did things, just like the guys.  If she wanted to revel in having the illusion of being commanded in the bedroom, who has the right to tell her that it's a bad thing?

But then it's not about equality, is it?

How does insulting and alienating a group of people now make anything better?

If you truly are a feminist, you're hurting your movement doing this crap.

If you're doing it to get a rise out of people, you are a troll, and not a particularly funny or unique one at that.

I was beginning to think I was weird for thinking this was funny, rather than butthurtful. Glad to see I'm not the only one.

Neither would I if it wouldn't result in official complaints if I did the same. Either go for equality or don't. They shouldn't expect to be treated the way they want to be treated while not offering others the same courtesy.

We've been misogynistic as a rule for pretty much the rest of human history, so it seems pretty whiny to complain when the shoe is on the other foot. Just sack up and deal with it.

I haven't been alive for most of human history so I don't see why I should be the one to sack up to atone for the actions of others.

Because women have been putting up with our bullshiat for thousands of years and only now are really getting treated like equal human beings? A hundred years ago, they couldn't even vote, for example. We can pretend things are all hunky dory now, but there's still a lot of shiat that women have to deal with. It just seems childish for a man to whine about discrimination when historically there has been such a huge power imbalance between the sexes, a power imbalance that doesn't just go away overnight because we pass a few laws and say everything is hunky-dory.

"Two dozen young professional women around the country read books by exclusively female authors."

And how does the LGBT bunch react to that?

Working in an office, I've heard far, far more HR-reprimand-worthy comments from women than I ever hear from men.  Yet in the videos shown, it's always some leering, drooling middle-aged middle manager man who's the guilty party....

That's like a moderate Muslim wearing a "Kill the Jews" T-shirt.

If you don't acknowledge the existence of and attempt to distance yourself from extremists in your cohort, you are hurting yourself.

Still doesn't make it my fault. Why should we swing the pendulum to the other side instead of stopping it in the middle? I'm expected to be polite and accepting while they make pot shots because transgressions I didn't commit and they probably never really experienced?

This just in: sometimes "progressive" movements (or certain members of them) overreach and say dumb things, too. Somehow, I manage to live my life making the jerkoff motion to them as I would some Tea Party whacko bloviating about Muslims, and move on.
