Tom Martin’s “anti-male discrimination” case against the London School of Economics dismissed; he responds by calling his critics “whores.”

Hard wooden chairs: Enemy of men?

Tom Martin, a former gender studies student at the London School of Economics, recently became a minor celebrity amongst Men’s Rights activists and other angry men when he sued his alma mater for alleged sexism against men.

He’s now had his case thrown out of court. Let’s go to the Camden New Journal for details:

Tom Martin, 39, who lives in Covent Garden, claimed he suffered “anti-male discrimination” while studying for a master’s degree in gender, media and culture at the world-famous university in Holborn.

Representing himself at his application for a trial at the Central London County Court on Tuesday, Mr Martin complained of a lack of men-only sessions in the university’s gym and the preponderance of posters in the corridors advertis­ing services for women without the presence of similar materials geared towards men.

Mr Martin, who describes himself as a feminist, said “hard” chairs in the library were uncomfortable for men and that a “male blaming culture” was evident in course materials, which “ignored men’s issues” and focused on wrongs done by them.

Damn those misandrist chairs and their man-hating hardness!

The judge didn’t buy it, saying Martin’s case had essentially no chance of success. He threw out the case and ordered Martin to pay LSE’s legal costs.

Martin, welcome to reality.

On Twitter, Martin responded to the news by calling his critics “whores.” One of many examples:

But I was really discriminated against, you whores!

More examples here, and here.

And, yes, his Twitter handle is indeed Sexismbusters.org.

EDITED TO ADD: Actual headline today on What Men are Saying About Women:

Tom Martin Faces Slut-Feminist Judge, Motion Denied..

EDITED AGAIN TO ADD: Tom Martin has replied to this post in the comments. Some highlights:

My legal complaint did NOT involve a complaint about the seating. You have been misled by the press – The Times and the West End Extra/Camden New Journal both mysteriously got it wrong.

One year prior to joining the university, when visiting its library, I did complain, that the seating being hard created a greater disadvantage for men than for women, as men have considerably smaller weight-bearing buttock pads than women, and men are heavier too – so for men, on average heavier than women, have more weight bearing down onto a pad which is approximately four times smaller than women’s on average – according to a BBC documentary on the subject.

He then details his attempts to fight this grave injustice. Also, there’s this:

[S]everal comments here are confusing ‘whore’ with ‘slut’. A slut has sex freely, which I am all for. Freedom of association is the ultimate in humanity. A whore charges for sex. Even if a woman is a virgin, but is waiting for Mr Right to buy her something, she’s a whore.

It’s counter-intuitive, but a lot of professional feminists are whores. They expect the government and men to do them special favours. They make up stories to convince men and government to believe that we all owe women something.

But really, if someone were keeping a tab, then…

Women owe men five years pension.
Women owe men some National Service.
Women owe men some inventions.
Women owe men positive discrimination in university curricula.
Women owe men some child access.
It’s women’s round at the bar too.

For the whole thing, see here.

Posted on March 16, 2012, in actual activism, antifeminism, I'm totally being sarcastic, irony alert, misandry, misogyny, MRA, oppressed men, Tom Martin, twitter, Uncategorized, whores. Bookmark the permalink. 1,737 Comments.

  1. Eh, Tom “One Trick Pony” Martin has gotten super boring, so here’s a video of a 4th grade girl taking her first ski jump:

  2. Really? Beloved says there’s no word in any language for a man who isn’t an asslicker. If men aren’t kissing up to the boss, their sucking up to the bank loan manager, being a sycophant to whatever political power, patting the asses of your sports buddies, begging the bartenders and drinking buddies or making kissy face to mothers and wives.

    Any other points you’d like to make whoremaster?

  3. @ Cloudia

    That video was amazing! Thanks for posting it. I should have known better to read the Youtube comments, though…sigh.

  4. +h

    Dammit

  5. Tom, what evidence would prove you wrong?

    Your entire “whoriarchy” gender structure… what evidence could someone provide to show that it is all mistaken? Because the thing is, until you can disprove a theory, it’s not a theory– it’s just faith. And while faith may be valid for spiritual and aesthetic concerns, it has no place in matters of politics.

    Here, I’ll start. The evidence that would prove my current gender theories entirely wrong includes:

    1) Neurological evidence that shows significant gender differences between men and women rooted in biology.
    2) Evidence from the psychology of happiness that proves that people are significantly happier with strong gender roles.
    3) Evidence that suggests that any gender overwhelmingly benefits from the patriarchy (as opposed to being hurt less), such as quality-of-life studies of people in more and less patriarchal societies that show that one gender, but not any others, has significantly higher quality of life in the more patriarchal society.
    4) Valid arguments that show that liberating one gender necessarily involves harming another gender.

  6. All those feminist wankers trying to pretend men are selling sex on a par with women, are nowhere nearer to renouncing prostitution either.

    Ladies, you have had expensive educations, surpassing men’s in duration. Your parents assisted you more with university fees than they did their sons. The jobs market is set up to positively discriminate in your favour if you’ll only put the effort in. Men are willing to do more childcare if you will only stop complaining about them not doing it right etc, and actually transfer the parental leave to them. Men have put men on the moon. All you need to do, is express some breast milk and get it into the fridge so you can return to your glorious careers and create or invent us all something useful. Please don’t invent us any more cupcakes though.

    With positive discrimination these days, you women now have equality of opportunity, and equality of outcome, being offered to you on a plate – but a few too many of you are choosing the plate., “Ooh, a plate! … more cup cakes!”

    The human race needs you to put down the crockery, and make a proper contribution to the advancement of civilization. Feminism’s “glass ceiling” story is the metaphorical glass ball and chain excuse for defeatism and inertia required for you never to have to leave the kitchen. We have microwave meals now – go and make yourselves a tad more useful.

  7. Still he blathers on? Here are some cute twins:

  8. Tom, what evidence would prove you wrong?

    Moreover, why does he expect women (whom he hates) to jump all over themselves to provide him with evidence that he’s wrong? I’ve started to answer his stupid little assertions about women/whores about a dozen times since last night, but the truth is (1) who gives a fuck if he knows what kind of person I am, and (2) it makes me sad that even a tiny part of me thinks it’s necessary to debate him on the subject of whether all women are whores.

    Honestly, I’m squicked out by his entire line of conversation. We’re whores. We really need to prove to him that we’re not whores. He’s never going to believe us that we’re not whores, so we really better dewhorify ourselves good. It would be completely disgusting if it weren’t so fucking stupid and boring.

  9. Hey guys, I went to see American Idiot and I thought it was good but didn’t like their interpretation of Whatsername. Have any of you seen it?

  10. Stupid fucking penguin WHORES!!!

  11. Sneezing fucking baby panda WHORE!

  12. Tom is the best troll yet.

    His wacky antics are more amusing that Antz.

    Could he possibly be an anti-MRA, trying to damage the cause with his lunatic outbursts?

  13. Baby and dog, both WHORES:

  14. Loudmouth Bengal cat WHORES:

    Okay, I’m out for a while. Gotta make my WHORE dinner, clean my WHORE kittens’ litterbox, and keep working on my fucking WHORE of a thesis.

  15. “Independent” – okay, could mean “has a job”, but not specific enough. I mean Beyonce claims to be an “Independent” woman, but then she also wants men to pay her telephone bills, and put a ring on it – so, no. If Beyonce has a job, it’s as a prostitute.

    While most of Tom’s posts have gotten boring, I must admit to laughing out loud at this little explanation that all the things pop singers sing about are literally true of themselves.

  16. Dammit, I’m totally drawing a blank on other pop songs that imply funny things about the singers. I mean, Sting comes to mind, but that’s just too easy.

  17. Female penguins are whores:

    http://www.omg-facts.com/view/Facts/14969

    Female humans can do so much better than female penguins though. Yes you can!

  18. Omg are you for real? There is no way…

  19. Oh since all women are “whores” was you mama one?

  20. We have microwave meals now – go and make yourselves a tad more useful.

    how is it he manages to say the opposite of “go make me a sammich” and STILL make it sound sexist?

    simply amazing.

  21. Sir Bodsworth Ruddlesby III

    Damn it, Tom! I have the flu, and you made me laugh so had with your penguins bit that I had a coughing fit and almost choked. Say something that dumb again, and I’m suing you for criminal endangerment.

  22. Penguins are whores. Huh.

    …I Can’t Believe It’s Not A Poe.

    “What evidence would prove you wrong?” question still open, btw.

  23. He can’t possibly be real. But he can’t be a Poe because he actually did this IRL…can he?

    Tom, I know you never answer anyone’s questions ever, but can you please please pretty please tell me why I should care if you think I’m a whore?

  24. Say something that dumb again, and I’m suing you for criminal endangerment.

    You have a better case than he did.

  25. Jumbofish:
    Oh since all women are “whores” was you mama one?

    Can anyone refer me to the bit where I refer to “all women” as whores, because apparently, according to the reliable witnesses here and on my youtube video comments section, I do claim all women are whores somewhere or other, but I can’t remember ever saying that, and nobody can find the evidence of it. For the record, I would never claim all women are whores. I’d put it at around the 97% mark in my estimation – so back off, haters.
    The glass is 3% full.

  26. Oh, please tell who isn’t a whore, by your definition. We need role models!

  27. For the record, I would never claim all women are whores. I’d put it at around the 97% mark in my estimation – so back off, haters.

    Tom Martin, you are a gem.

    A gem who doesn’t seem to understand that “whore” is a word that has a definition, but a gem.

  28. Tom chooses to answer THAT question but not mine? MINE WAS ASKED IN ALL SERIOUSNESS.

  29. …I don’t think 97% of women have even had sex.

    I guess if you (in Tom Martin’s estimation) ever get anything from any man, even things that you’re supposed to get because society, you can be a whore without even having sex?

  30. So, if I send my mum a present for mother’s day, which she fully expects, she’s not a whore, but if my brother or dad does, she is!

  31. Holly, did you miss the bit where even a virgin is a whore, if she’s hoping Mr.Right will give her a present some day?

    Poor old Virgin Mary, she used Joseph. Disqualified, please submit halo to Mr. Tom Martin immediately.

    Now, Lilith, on the other hand. She’s a hero! She ran away so fast Adam never had a chance to do anything for her.

  32. Tom: Fascinating how quite so many of you don’t seem to want get your heads round the concept of having sex without money or gifts being involved.

    It’s really not that complicated for me.

    Still waiting for the first feminist here to renounce prostitution in all its forms.

    It’s the proverbial open door.

    Still waiting for you to realise we don’t have sex for money/gifts. The thing is you have this daft idea that one can, “renounce” your idiotic idea of “prostitution” which you have defined as, “being female and choosing who you have sex with.”

    Until you accept the logical conclusion of your arguments you aren’t going to be able to persuade anyone of them, because the intractable dilemma you have created will continue to trip you up (as is most plainly evidenced by your loss in court).

    It’s an open door, all you have to be is rational enough to apply yourself to thinking it through.

    Are any of you rational enough to walk through it of your own free will though?

    Nah.

  33. You still haven’t answered the question was your mama a “whore”?

    Did she wait for “mr.right”? -she was a “whore”
    Did she received gifts from her husband or any man? -she was a “whore”

  34. Okay, so now I’m confused. Tom wants me to put down the crockery and… what, work? I already work, so does MrB. I write in my spare time, is that making a contribution? I make kickass oatmeal cookies and pie crust, I think that delicious baked goods are a positive contribution to society. Is the only contribution I can make sexual?

    Also, is his contention that when a man and a woman apply for the same job, the woman will get it automatically, no matter how much experience the man has? Because I’ll tell you right now, if I applied for the paraprofessional job MrB is going for, they would ignore me totally. MrB has something like twenty years of experience dealing with EI/LD kids, five in a public school setting. His experience trumps mine so hard it’s not even funny. But in Tom’s world none of that matters because MrB is a man. Right?

  35. I suppose he’s not much bothered by the idea that basically every man who expects to have consensual sex is a john?

    And any man who wants to give his girlfriend presents, wow, he’s like, a mega-john.

    (I’ve explained before, by the way, that I give my boyfriend presents, yet have received no credit for being a reverse whore! Perhaps I’m making a whore of him? How terrible of me.)

  36. Now, Lilith, on the other hand. She’s a hero! She ran away so fast Adam never had a chance to do anything for her.

    Yeah, but then she went and had sex with lots of demons and probably demanded gifts and child support.

  37. Crumbelievable

    For the record, I would never claim all women are whores. I’d put it at around the 97% mark in my estimation – so back off, haters.

    Ohhh, that makes it sound so much better. Thanks Tom!

  38. Crumbelievable

    The blockquotes– they have failed me.

  39. Okay, not-actually-hypothetical scenario:

    This Valentine’s Day, my boyfriend gave me a card and a painting. I gave him a card, a book, and a pot of flowers.

    Why exactly do you figure his gift was payment for sex, and my gift was, um, nonexistant?

  40. Holly: …I don’t think 97% of women have even had sex.

    But not having sex can make you a whore, because some guy did something, and you didn’t put out, for some other guy (because that something might have been inventing glass, or killing a deer for the first time, or something, way back when in the distant past, and society is the better for it).

    Which is why, though he refuses to admit it, he’s called all women (even his mother, whom he seems to want to exempt), whores, even the virgins of 12.

  41. Crumbelievable

    Obviously his dear old mum is exempt from the “Practically all women are whores” maxim

    MRAs will always make shitty generalizations about women as long as the actual women in their lives don’t count.

  42. Considering that his mom meets all of his criteria for a whore, that is, she exists and is a woman who has lived, she is indeed a whore.

Because the thing is, until you can disprove a theory, it’s not a theory– it’s just faith. And while faith may be valid for spiritual and aesthetic concerns, it has no place in matters of politics.

    Here, I’ll start. The evidence that would prove my current gender theories entirely wrong includes:

    4) Valid arguments that show that liberating one gender necessarily involves harming another gender.

    Okay Oxymandias42, regarding questions that would disprove your thesis:

    1) What the fuck is your thesis?

    2) I think there is some research showing women report they are a little less happy with non-traditional gender roles on average, but given that approximately 97% of women are whores, I am happy to ignore this evidence entirely, for the good of the land, as we’re not here to make whores happy, but achieve gender-developmental progress.

    3) I don’t think either sex benefits from the whoriarchy, it is merely a case that in a whoriarchy women think they’re getting one over on their wage-slave husbands, which distracts the women sufficiently from their own downward and backward trajectory, and that of the similarly fascist juntas the division of roles engenders.

    4) Liberating men involves mildly inconveniencing whores. It’s a win/win.

  44. So how does it feel to call your own mom a “whore” tom?

  45. I think Tom uses “whore” in the same way that smurfs use “smurf,” so he probably has no problem calling his mother a “whore.”

  46. 1) Neurological evidence that shows significant gender differences between men and women rooted in biology.

    I don’t think any of those differences amount to “aha, this is the whore gender.”

    2) Evidence from the psychology of happiness that proves that people are significantly happier with strong gender roles.

    Gonna need a source on that.

    3) Evidence that suggests that any gender overwhelmingly benefits from the patriarchy (as opposed to being hurt less), such as quality-of-life studies of people in more and less patriarchal societies that show that one gender, but not any others, has significantly higher quality of life in the more patriarchal society.

    Gonna need that to be a sentence.

    4) Valid arguments that show that liberating one gender necessarily involves harming another gender.

    …And this is why you want men “liberated.”

    Anyway, the “harm” in question is usually just differential. It’s like, yes, when women could own property, you lost the benefit of “being the only gender that could own property,” so I guess that’s a harm, but boo frickin’ hoo. It’s not a harm proportional to the gain to women.

    I think there is some research showing women report they are a little less happy with non-traditional gender roles on average, but given that approximately 97% of women are whores, I am happy to ignore this evidence entirely, for the good of the land, as we’re not here to make whores happy, but achieve gender-developmental progress.

    Okay, so 97% of women are whores, and you’re not here to make whores happy… see, it’s not misogyny, it’s just 97% misogyny!

    And seriously A WHORE IS A PERSON WHO HAS SEX FOR MONEY IT IS NOT JUST A WORD FOR “EVIL BAD WOMAN OF BADNESS.” HOW DENSE ARE YOU.

    Anyway I still do not understand the moral difference between having sex for money and, say, selling haircuts for money. But I suppose that’s just because I’m a whorey whore, the kind who doesn’t have sex for money, who even gives her boyfriend presents and buys him dinner… that kind of whore.

    Liberating men involves mildly inconveniencing whores. It’s a win/win.

    If to not be a whore I have to never accept anything from anyone ever, that’s more than a “mild inconvenience.”

  47. @Holly

    I really wish the public could see the stupid and vile shit he says on the internet. I doubt his image of poor persecuted man who only wants equality would survive long after that.

  48. Maya – Yeah, for serious. I think 98% of the arguments about “hm, maybe he does have a point, perhaps gender studies is a hostile environment for men!” would evaporate when he became known as the whorey whoring whore dude.

  49. Jumbofish, you’re still claiming that I am claiming all women are whores. Let me clarify again:

    Approximately 3% of women are not whores.

    Approximately 100% of women have the option not to be a whore.

    but – and I think here is where a lot of the confusion lies – as little as 97% of people actually understand percentages. If there are 100 people, but only 97 of them understand percentages, then 97% of them, understand percentages. Yes you can (not be a whore)!

  50. @Holly
    Tom was quoting from Ozy (without using any identifying marks, so I see how you would be confused). The first four numbered quotes in Tom’s post that you then quoted yourself are things that Ozy said zie would need to disprove zir current gender theories:

    http://manboobz.com/2012/03/16/tom-martins-anti-male-discrimination-case-against-the-london-school-of-economics-dismissed-he-responds-by-calling-his-critics-whores/comment-page-12/#comment-136931

  51. @Tom
    You refuse to substantiate any of your claims, and your definitions are vague at best. No one here is going to take you seriously unless you refine your position. You are only embarrassing yourself.

  52. I honestly don’t even know what the word whore means anymore. At this point it lost all meaning.

  53. Myoo – Oopsie. Well, now I feel like a dumb whore. :p

    Approximately 100% of women have the option not to be a whore.

    How, specifically, would I go about doing this?

    I already don’t have sex for money. I give my boyfriend about as many presents and dinners as he gives me.

    I don’t expect anything from society (except pap smears and the like, and I’d expect trans men to get those too) that men don’t get.

    How much more un-whorey can I get?

  54. The thing is, you have never specified how someone is not a whore. Therefore, it is more likely that any given person in your definition is a heaux. You have not said why your mom is not a heaux, so we are left with the high probability that she is indeed a whore, according to your stated definition, which is a woman who works or does not work, who marries or does not marry, who accepts gifts and does not accept gifts, and who has sex with some men and not with others.

  55. Ok…there is no way this guy can be serious. Unless he’s just trying to fuck around with us, how come this “whoriarchy” never made it on his website? is this “theory” what he used to argue his claim of discrimination?

    Tom did you bring up your ” whoriarchy theory” in court or in the gender studies class or with other people besides us?

    because I’m having a really hard time believing this is real. I knew he was dumb but not this level of dumb O_o

  56. Well, according to his own definition, he is a heaux, because he took money for doing things, has had sex with some people but not with others, and most likely accepted gifts from people.

  57. Tom, you don’t get it. I wasn’t asking you to disprove my gender theory (which I have written pages and pages about over at my blog– you may start here). I was asking you to say what things would disprove YOUR theory, and giving an example by suggesting four things off the top of my head that would disprove mine. (Even if I got lost in one of my sentences a bit. >.>)

    So. Question stands. What pieces of information that are (presumably) not currently true would, if true, disprove your theory?

  58. Let me see if I can explain my reasoning further, Tom, because you may not understand it.

    In general, in science, if you have a theory, it is because it has been shown over multiple trials to be the best explanation of the data. That means that it must be conceivable that the theory NOT be true. For instance, if God came down one afternoon and explained that he created the world in six days and the dinosaur bones thing was his idea of a practical joke, then the theory of evolution would be disproved. Please note that EVERY theory can be disproved: for instance, you can imagine a world where two plus two doesn’t equal four– for instance, if you had two apples and two apples, put them together, counted them, and there were three apples. You would be deeply confused, of course, but it is imaginable.

    Now, if a person who has a theory has NO evidence that could disprove it, that’s called an “unfalsifiable” theory. Unfalsifiable theories are not scientific. For instance, if I said that there was a dragon in my garage, and you said “but I can’t see the dragon,” and then I said “well, it’s invisible,” and you said “but it isn’t leaving any footprints,” and I said “it’s also intangible,” and you said “but it doesn’t–” and I interrupted you and said “the dragon in my garage acts exactly like there isn’t a dragon in my garage.” Arguing with me wouldn’t be fair. Even if I had evidence for there being a garage-dragon– maybe there are burn marks on the garage roof– there would be no way to prove that the dragon DOESN’T exist.

    Convince me your theory isn’t an invisible garage-dragon.

  59. The only way Tom has told me to not be a whore is to “drop the price of sex to zero.”

    Okay. Done. I have sex for free. I don’t have it with anyone, no, but the people I have it with, I don’t charge anything.

    …Why am I still a whore? This is confusing.

  60. He also wants money for not doing things – he wants rather a lot of money for not being able to finish his classes. XD

  61. *not willing, although his posts here do suggest that he wouldn’t have been able to handle the coursework anyway.

  62. There is a limit to just how un-whorey you need to get. Once you’ve hit zero, then you’re at your target whoring level, of not being a whore. Move on. File a patent. Write a joke. Find a cure for something. Not being a whore isn’t a vocation in and of itself. “And the Nobel Prize for not being a whore goes to… .”

    9 out of 10 patents are awarded to men, and yet in factual media, men are portrayed positively only 1 time out of 10. Don’t be one of those media douches pretending men aren’t anything other than freaking awesome.

    Feminism’s job should be to portray men’s achievements as something women should want to emulate and surpass, but at the moment, gender studies professors and most other professional feminists are paid to cry wolf about men holding women back.

  63. Tom, you sound almost as ridiculous as NWO by now.

    You’re also a whore.

  64. I’m not going to give a fuck about not being a whore unless you explain to me why your theory isn’t an invisible garage-dragon.

  65. There is a limit to just how un-whorey you need to get. Once you’ve hit zero, then you’re at your target whoring level, of not being a whore. Move on. File a patent. Write a joke. Find a cure for something. Not being a whore isn’t a vocation in and of itself. “And the Nobel Prize for not being a whore goes to… .”

    Like most women, I have a job. It’s not like I sit around all day not-having-sex-for-money and that’s my life.

    The things I have to explain.

    Feminism’s job should be to portray men’s achievements as something women should want to emulate and surpass,

    But all the mammoths are already dead. :(

  66. Getting Tom to actually answer questions is like playing Roulette. Or maybe it’s like shooting random holes through a book and then trying to read it.

    So what was up with those feminist whore penguins? That’s what I really want to know.

    I bet penguins have really big butts for their little bodies. Is that it?

  67. Tom Martin, who hasn’t patented, built, or invented anything useful, just proved he’s a whore.

  68. What exactly are we moving on from? Today I read a book on experimental design (for work), worked on debugging a professional database, repotted my rosemary and mint plants, and planted basil. Which of these activities is the whorey one?

  69. And practiced trumpet and am now reading entries in a writing contest.

  70. “File a patent. Write a joke. Find a cure for something. ”

    Says the guy whose main contribution to humanity is an unsuccessful frivolous lawsuit which landed him with a very large legal bill I doubt he’ll be able to pay.
