If you stand for Men’s Rights, you’ll fall for anything

Gullibility, thy name is Men’s Rights Subreddit.

So, a day or so ago, a troll graced r/mensrights with a tale of imaginary woe about a bad breakup and its aftermath that seemed was designed to push a whole bunch of Men’s Rights hotbuttons all at once.

Lo and behold, the locals bit, and in the process revealed not only their incredible gullibility but also what you might call a highly blinkered view of modern relationships and social etiquette.

Today the troll fessed up, but not before the r/mensrights crowd, taking his tale for the truth, offered him some truly terrible advice laced with lots of righteous indignation.

Here’s the not-exactly-believable story the troll told them:

A few weeks back I was casually seeing a woman (a FWB, really) and let’s just say she was hirsute. Hirsute to the point where when I was doing her doggystyle and looked at her back it kinda seemed like a guy and it really turned me off. I broke it off, telling her that I simply wasn’t attracted enough to fulfill my end of the bargain, she freaked out and asked if it was because of the hair. I should have lied, but I didn’t.

If this had been real, it would of course have been a textbook example of how not to break up with someone. (Hint: Don’t ever tell anyone you’re breaking up with them because you think they’re too hairy, even if they are the dog-faced boy. Especially if you are literally having sex with them at the time.)

But that was not the part of the story that enraged the r/mensrighters. This was:

Fast forward to today. I was chatting up another woman and asked her if she wanted to go out for dinner some time. Turns out she is a friend of woman #1 and read me the riot act about how I was a pig and a pedophile for wanting a hairless partner. Of course, I never said that I wanted a hairless partner, just that a bunch of body hair doesn’t do it for me. There was no reasoning with her (and I obviously wasn’t going to get the date) so I tried to end the conversation, but she actually yelled after me “Watch out for the pedophile!” …

I really don’t get it. I was upfront with the original woman and she went apeshit, going so far as lying to her friend who then made a whole damn Starbucks look at me like I was a criminal. Now I can’t go back there because it was just too damn embarrassing. It shouldn’t OK for women to accuse men of things like this when they feel they’ve been wronged, especially when the “wronging” came down to a matter of taste.

Cue the angry mob!

Well, not quite yet. The OP also included a helpful summary at the end of his post:

TLDR: Gave a girl the boot over her barbaloot suit, then her friend wouldn’t give me the loot. Shoot!

Ok, NOW cue the angry mob. Some highlights from the thread; click on the yellow comments to see them in their original context.

A few commenters refused to join the mob, and were downvoted for showing signs of sense:

Evidently Dale Carnegie is some sort of mangina.

Advice from ladies was especially unwelcome:

The only dude in the thread who doubted the OP’s unbelievable tale was the MRA and r/mensrights regular who calls himself C0CKPUNCHER – and you can see what that got him.

Guys, if a dude called C0CKPUNCHER is your voice of reason, your “human rights movement” may have a problem.

  1. 2-D Man's Rights Activist

    Does anyone know where I can buy a bridge?

  2. I love pk_atheist’s comment. “[Gendered slur], but that’s not an attack on women!” MRAs must have gotten a memo the rest of us missed: they decide what’s misogyny and what is not.

  3. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    I bet the OPtroll is having a good laugh about all this. Though why he (?) bothered trolling these clowns I’ll never know: the MRM doesn’t need any help producing garbage.

  4. Tell me again, why aren’t these guys trolled all the time? They seem like some of the easiest people to troll and get good results out of.

  5. Woo first comment!! I have nothing constructive to say

  6. Damn… how did you guys beat me??

  7. popcornculturejunkie

    Yet another amazing tale from the MRM…maybe this guy and the OP of yesterday’s post should just meet up and write an even more horrible piece of fiction. It’s not like we’re running out of things to laugh at. :D

  8. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    Nah, the OP’s made-up tale was coherent. He’d have to learn arglebarglefantasyarglerageargele to be a real MRM ghost-writer.

  9. popcornculturejunkie

    Coherent, but still lousy. :)

  10. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    LOL if he’d written something that wasn’t lousy, even the MRM might have picked up he was trolling.

    … Or maybe not. :P

  11. popcornculturejunkie

    I don’t know…MRAs seem so hung up on the whole “Vagina is EVIL!” spiel they probably can’t tell trolls from the rest of the idiot herd. :)

  12. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    True! :D

  13. You shouldn’t be so dismissive, David, it’s really hard to tell a troll from a deluded MRA. Both messages have a similar connection to reality.
    Mr. Lolwaitwut forgot to add that woman #2 attempted to steal our hero’s sperm with her superevilpowers to force him to pay child support.

  14. Am I right in reading that the guy was INSIDE said (possibly fictional) woman number 1 when he dumped her? How can anyone not see the guy as the General Paton of the douchetastic maneuver?

  15. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    I didn’t read it that way at first but on looking at it again, it does seem that’s what he meant!

    But the whole thing’s made up – David said the OP ‘fessed up.

  16. Couldn’t he have at least pleaded a headache?

  17. Oh, MRM, never change. This why your movement is a joke.

  18. hippodameia8527

    I think you should charge more than $50.00.

  19. someguy bored with your schtick

    Heh. Enjoy.

    Trolls come in to /mr all day long and 99.9% of them are smoked out immediately. But of course, even though /r/mr is the only place that has banned you that you regret because you felt a conversation could be had there, you will never actually mention the good stuff that happens at /r/mr.

    It’s because you’re dishonest David.

    Reminds me of the time though, that AloyshaV and other SRS members encouraged an /mr reader to commit suicide. That was really sweet of them and is of course why now, even today, SRS has to stay out of /r/mr.

  20. Excellent point, “someguy bored with your shtick”. But you’ll never see the Boobz King write about SRS, the most misandrist place on the Web, egging on a suicidal man. It wouldn’t fit his misandrist worldview.

  21. How many times do you fuckwads need to read this?!? THIS BLOG IS ABOUT MISOGYNY!! It doesn’t cover all the wrongs in the world. Twits.

  22. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    Oooh look, Steely thinks he’s found a little buddy. Ain’t it cute?

  23. It’s because you’re dishonest Davidr blog is about what you want it to be about and not what I want it to be about.

  24. It’s so cute when Steele sucks up to other shitheads.

  25. That’s funny, Hellkell, except it’s in fact not. You, as is typical for Boobzland, are nothing but a vile fucking misandrist, a disgusting accomodationist for misandry and hatred, and one who will excuse even manslaughter for your own vile disgusting agenda.

  26. I have some real estate in Florida that these boobz should totally buy! I mean, sure, the land is a bit alligatery, but the good news is that there are no women for miles!

    That will show those fictional strawladies who is boss!

  27. Reminds me of the time though, that AloyshaV and other SRS members encouraged an /mr reader to commit suicide. That was really sweet of them and is of course why now, even today, SRS has to stay out of /r/mr.

    Hey Schticky, why don’t you be a good journalist and substantiate what you say. Number 1 hole in what you say: SRSters have and continue to post in r/mr occasionally, including myself. You wouldn’t want anyone to conclude that you’re a bad journalist; that’s like the worst thing ever in the history of creation.

  28. Steele: Excuse me? Where did I excuse manslaughter?

    You still suck up to shitheads. Too bad none of them want to play with you.

  29. the most misandrist place on the Web

    Hahahahahahaha, fantastic. Steele, I hope you never lose your talent for bloated, stumbling hyperbole.

  30. Oh boy, Steele’s exceeding a 1:1 vile:post ratio! Who brought the popcorn?

  31. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    LOL is this the fastest Steele meltdown yet? One minute he’s all pomposity and going on about noble enterprises, the next it’s VILEVILEABOMINATIONSRAGEARGLEBARGLE.

  32. Trolls come in to /mr all day long and 99.9% of them are smoked out immediately.

    [CITATION NEEDED]

    But of course, even though /r/mr is the only place that has banned you that you regret because you felt a conversation could be had there

    ,

    What the fuck does this have to do with anything?

    you will never actually mention the good stuff that happens at /r/mr.

    Yeah, David, you write about the misogyny, but never ABOUT THE DELICIOUS RECIPES

  33. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    Here y’go, Gametime – it’s even a grey kitty! :)

  34. Nobody ever writes about all the planes that don’t explode.

  35. Kittehs, thanks! *nom nom nom d’awwwww nom nom nom*

  36. I’m having kind of a bad day, and tomorrow is going to be worse. (No one died, though, so there’s that…) Anyone got any more cute animal videos they’ve been holding in reserve? ‘Cos I could use them, and I’m too tired to look them up myself.

  37. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    How about this corgi playing chasey before bed, cloudiah?

  38. Aww, Cloudiah, I wish I could fix your day tomorrow, but alas. But I can find kittens! Here’s a kitten who likes to play in water.

  39. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    And this is a series of cute pics:

  40. Cloudiah, here’s a science experiment involving cat and bee hybridization. Warning: it may be a bit disturbing to those unfamiliar with the methods of modern science.

  41. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    I wanna see the follow-up video where Potato the Bee Cat injects super feline-bee venom into owner’s hands with ALL zir claws! :D

  42. Here are some munchkin kittens. (Munchkittens? Nah, that sounds like a snack food, Munchkin kittens it is.)

  43. Tulgey, that video would set my local university abuzz with the implications of beeing able to hybridize cats with insects. (I think we’d end up with something that would lounge around in the hive all day, sting you for little reason at all, and swarm after laser beams.)

  44. I knew you guyz would come through. [cloudiah wipes tear from eye, re-watches corgis, and kitties, and “bees”] THANKS!

  45. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

  46. “Excuse me? I’m not aware.” -Steele

  47. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    LOL sums him up, doesn’t it?

  48. And lions, and HOW COULD I FORGET THE BUNNEHS?!!?!?!!

  49. “TLDR: Gave a girl the boot over her barbaloot suit, then her friend wouldn’t give me the loot. Shoot!”

    This was written first, and then the rest of the story was concocted to fit it. That’s something over which I’d be willing to bet money.

    Submitted for your consideration: the MRM conception of humor. Menz Iz Funny!! Are you not entertained?

  50. I googled “vile kittens” thinking I might find something funny, and the first link with any content was a 2001 review of the movie Josie and The Pussycats – which had more relevant commentary than Steele ever does.

    So, instead of vile kittens, I found you some kittens eating lettuce.

  51. Also, here are some butterflies on a curry leaf plant. But they’re tiger butterflies, so…

  52. For the record, SRS ignores MR because they’re low hanging fruit since they were declared a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

  53. Lettuce-loving kitties are adorable.

  54. This is late, but am I reading this wrong, or does Steely think that “manslaughter” means “killing a male person?”

  55. CI, I was wondering why he chose “manslaughter” and not just “murder.” Now that you bring it up, it seems plausible that he might be using it that way.

  56. For the record, SRS ignores MR because they’re low hanging fruit since they were declared a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

    Can this meme die already? That’s not what happened. The SPLC just pointed out that there are some hateful fucks writing a large portion of the loose collection of blogs that like to call themselves the Men’s Rights Movement. That’s it. There isn’t even enough to the MRM to call a group, let alone a hate group.

  57. 2-D Man, you are way too reality-based for the Internet.

  58. CI, I was wondering why he chose “manslaughter” and not just “murder.” Now that you bring it up, it seems plausible that he might be using it that way.

    To be fair, if one were to get charged for encouraging a depressed person to commit suicide, they’d probably be charged with manslaughter as opposed to murder because intent is hard to prove and manslaughter would more likely result in a conviction, assuming that such a situation resulted in a trial.

    So maybe behind that repetitive droning from Steele lies a keen legal mi-ahahahahahahaHA!

  59. I ‘aspose it’s a character flaw, cloudiah.

  60. 2-D Man, I don’t really see how that is relevant to what either of us were saying, but I’m “encouraging a depressed person to commit suicide” not manslaughter or murder? Now, I’m no legal expert, most of my knowledge of the law comes from one Criminal Justice 101 class, but I’m pretty sure that manslaughter has to be when someone actually kills someone, as in, does the act that causes the victim to be dead, but without malicious intent of murder. I’m not even sure if what you said would cause someone to be charged with anything in a court of law. Which is definitely not a good thing, though.

  61. Here, have a kitten adorably attacking a man’s hand. Seems to be a female kitten too, so bonus misandry.

  62. Or, for maximum aww value…

  63. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    ::turns to little puddle of awwwwws::

  64. This kitten is sad because its person is making it listen to such shitty music. See how it tries to escape?

  65. Trolls come in to /mr all day long and 99.9% of them are smoked out immediately.

    Your movement is nothing BUT trolls

    Paul Elam is a miserable troll

    r/mensrights is moderated by a women-hating troll named AnnChrist

    You yourself are trolling this website right now, because thats the closest thing MRAs know to real activism.

  66. Adorable kitty plays fetch.

    Note that it appears to be smarter than most of our trolls.

  67. In case Cloudiah is still depressed, let’s bring out the big guns.

    Maru gets a manicure:

  68. I feel like we could use this one as a counterargument to trolls of the sky-is-falling-feminism-ruins-everything persuasion.

  69. Bookmarked for kitties, to be held in reserve for a time of great need.
