The Misogyny Album

Tired of reading long, rambling, barely coherent misogynist tirades? Would you prefer misogyny in convenient, e-z to understand chart form? Well, you’re in luck, because a Redditor calling himself firstEncounter has assembled a handy imgur album of “women logic” graphics and comics. Here’s one of them:

Oh, let’s do one more:

Oh, let’s make it an even three:

If you enjoyed these, there are 29 more for you here.

Why, you ask, has firstEncounter gone to the trouble of assembling such a giant stinky pile of misogyny? It’s not why you think! He just likes to put things in categories! As he explains:

I actually have entire imgur albums categorized by content. …

I don’t hate women, seriously. Nor do I believe the images within the album are accurate depictions of standard women behavior. I simply found them entertaining to some extent.

So there you have it!

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, firstEncounter’s little collection received (let’s all say it together) DOZENS OF UPVOTES on Reddit.

And thanks, ShitRedditSays, for pointing me to this.

  1. Soooo, Magz, I don’t at all doubt that you’ve heard people say things about how violence is a natural expression of masculinity, or that men can’t be victims. It’s just not actually a tenet of feminist thought.

    In fact, if you really dislike hearing stuff like that, you know who you should stay away from? MRAs and PUAs.

  2. To blow your mind even further…what is “health”? I’d really like to know that one too.

  3. Mags and Ruby: Some feminists can be quite gender essentialist (usually with a reversal built in: i.e. women are naturally PEACEFUL; therefore, they are superior to men). A number of the 1970s radical feminists tended that way (including believing that women would be better leaders than men). I tended that way myself when I first became a feminist in the early 1980s–since the kyriarchy depends on essentialist theories, it makes it appealing. And yes, some feminists assume all men are ‘naturally’ violent–and ‘naturally’ drawn to pornography, etc. That is generally not the tenor of discussion on this board (as a careful reading of post after post and thread after thread would make clear).

    “The women are naturally nurturing and peaceful and would make better leaders and change the world” theory fell apart (for me) pretty quickly–starting with Margaret Thatcher.

  4. Ruby, too bad you’re not venting about MRAs, you’re spewing complete bullshit about healthcare.

    And if you think this a radfem site, you’re more than a bit mistaken. Read the header and try to comprehend it.

    Total troll.

  5. I find it hilarious when people use the word “feminist” ad believe it’s a magical word that will make everybody agree with them on anything. Even things like “women are greedy”.

  6. And if you think this a radfem site, you’re more than a bit mistaken. Read the header and try to comprehend it.

    Seeing how frequently regulars – and not trolls – confuse radical feminist with an actual mirror of MRA, it’s pretty amazing that people think this is a radical feminist site.

    “Do these guys think women don’t experience sexual pleasure?”

    That’s exactly what they think. That’s why they believe women could only use sex to “barter” for other more valuable material goods.

    At some point along the line, they bought into the virgin/whore dichotomy and they cling to it for dear life. I’ve noticed that some incel men have a really tough time with this, and I can’t figure out which came first, the chicken or the egg…

    I’ve also noticed that they think relationships are about possession. They feel entitled to possess an attractive woman, who will barter her bodily autonomy and freedom for “protection” from the big bad sexual male. When they don’t get that, what they see is a breakdown in the social system that’s supposed to be providing it for them, not a problem with their notions of what a relationship entails.

  8. I’m getting the distinct impression that Ruby is a teenager.

    Because I’m pretty sure most radfems would be deeply offended to be affiliated with a trans guy. Transsexual Empire and all, don’tchaknow.

  9. monsieur sans nom

    attractiveness barely comes into consideration when I am attracted to someone.

    ROFLMAO!

    That’s not even a good lie, jumbofish! It’s a flaming contradiction.

    Furthermore, there IS statistical evidence correlating physical beauty with good genes(health, intelligence, talent, etc). The thing about beauty is that it’s very much quantitative more so than qualitative. The one universal quality that seems to coincide with beauty 100% of the time is symmetry.

    So the hypothesis that men want beautiful women because beauty is a sign of good genes fits the data quite well. And I say it’s probably not far off base IRL. ;)

  10. Depends on what you mean by attractive Mr. No Name.

  11. Oh fuck yeah, the guys who perpetuate a beauty standard of “light-skinned, skinny, big-breasted tiny-waisted medium-hipped, long hair, young, wears makeup, wears hyperfeminine clothing, etc.” are all about the fucking symmetry. Show ‘em a fat butch chick who’s the same on both sides and they go wild.

  12. monsieur sans nom

    Holly there are multiple axes of symmetry; not just the vertical axis. Most men like women with curves. And that’s not the same thing as OBESE women(whose waist circumference is significantly greater than their hips and their bust). Why would straight men like butch chicks, anyway? Some do, but most don’t. The women I’m attracted to, like her for example, have pretty wide hips, thunder thighs, and large derrieres.

  13. Holly there are multiple axes of symmetry; not just the vertical axis.

    …You like women who are the same on the top and the bottom?

    Also I think it’s interesting you can understand that not all men like the same thing, but then still get all IT’S MATH IT’S OBJECTIVE. Because men are people; women are MATH.

  14. Dealing with MSN is like trying to teach a pig to sing.

  15. Her credentials are impressive.

    Most impressive. But she is not a Jedi yet.

  16. That’s not even a good lie, jumbofish! It’s a flaming contradiction.

    No, it’s not. “Attractiveness” is generally understood as “physical attractiveness.” It is entirely possible for physical attractiveness to be less important to a person than a vast number of other traits in determining whether they are attracted to someone.

    And speaking from my own experience? My partner of four years and I first met online. I had absolutely no idea what he looked like when I started developing a crush on him – I just knew he was smart and funny and kind and a pleasure to talk to. I don’t see how it would be a lie to say that those things were a great deal more relevant to my attraction to him than his looks, seeing as, y’know, they self-evidently were under the circumstances.

    And honestly, I love him immensely and think he’s cute, but he’s not at all my usual physical “type.” Guess how much I care! (Hint: not very much.)

  17. Oh great, no name is back. yeaaahhh.

    Furthermore, there IS statistical evidence correlating physical beauty with good genes(health, intelligence, talent, etc). The thing about beauty is that it’s very much quantitative more so than qualitative. The one universal quality that seems to coincide with beauty 100% of the time is symmetry.

    So the hypothesis that men want beautiful women because beauty is a sign of good genes fits the data quite well. And I say it’s probably not far off base IRL. ;)

    You are aware, surely, that we haven’t found a gene for health, intelligence or talent? And that, contrary to health, beauty standards are very changing?
    There are places and times when a fat woman was a sign of good health, other where the must was too be skinny and fragile. Sometimes and some places tan is better and seen as healthy, other it’s a mark of poverty.
    And beauty standard is not just about the body. “Most” men like women who wear make-up, who have nice fitting clothes, who have pretty long blond hair. “Most” men like women who shave their armpit and their legs. “Most” men prefer a thin woman on diet than a fat one, even if she’s more healthy. “Most” men prefer a woman weaker and smaller than them.

    None of that has anything to do with being healthy, intelligent, talented, making or raising healthy intelligent or talented babies. If you can’t see that then you’re a fool.

  18. NWO: This is a hate site, you spend your time belittling, shaming and hating men. You enjoy the privilege of doing this while demanding no woman be shamed for her bad behavior.

    Again with the lies and misunderstanding.

    We are perfectly willing to shame women when they behave badly.

    It’s just that you think women doing things you don’t like (such as having sex) is shameful, and we don’t.

    That pisses you off. It offends your wa. It’s even harder for you that most people agree more with us, than with you.

    Which is as it should be.

  19. Ruby: Wow, some of you people sure do love your strawmen. LOL! If science can’t convince you that women are genetically programmed to go for men of means, then nothing can.

    But you haven’t referred to any actual science. Find something with data, a testable hypothesis; the subsequent testing, and the analsys of the results.

    Otherwise, it’s not science, it’s you parroting just-so stories.

    And Kipling did it better.

    I came to this web site to vent about all the MRA’s I kept seeing around the internet spewing their hatred. I didn’t realize that expressing my political views and what I’ve learned about Evolutionary Psychology would garner so much hatred. Radical Feminists and MRA’s, I hate both extremes.

    Now that’s a strawman, an exemplary instance to boot, you have learned well.

    No one is upset about you expressing your political views. They are annoyed at your inability to admit that what you are saying is shite. Not that it’s wrong, but that you aren’t supporting the claims you make with evidence. Yeah, it sucks to be at the receiving end of a lot of people telling you you’re wrong, but you keep asking for it.

    All it takes to avoid this sort of thing is to cop to not having a solid basis for your belief. Because I, for one, don’t give a shit what you believe. You can think women are all gold-diggers, and men are all slavering idiots. No skin off my nose. But when you try to convince me it’s the “way things are,”, well then you have to put up or shut up.

    When you do neither, you are going to get called on it, until you choose one of the options.

  20. Falconer: I’m trying to think of someone we remember primarily because they embarrassed themselves, and failing.

    Dan Quayle.

  21. That’s not even a good lie, jumbofish! It’s a flaming contradiction.

    By “attractiveness” I meant looks and beauty and by “attracted” I meant interested in romantically. It’s not a contradiction unless you meant like “attractive” mental features or something which isn’t what I was talking about anyway (I am not interested in being with unpleasant people). Plenty of people fall in love with others despite looks so its not like its unusual for me to say that. I mean maybe you have a hard time comprehending loving someone regardless of appearance but don’t assume its impossible for others to.

  22. If science can’t convince you that women are genetically programmed to go for men of means, then nothing can.

    Science doesn’t say that, though. Social science suggests that in unequal societies, women are more likely to seek out men of status, yes, but this is a trend that decreases with equality in the culture.

  23. Oh. You were confusing evopsych with science.

    Triply fitting for being a (fictional) scientist.
