@Fidelbogen sez: “We needn’t treat feminists fairly or ethically. Underhanded tricks r the order of the day.”
It’s labor day here in the US of A, a day for picnics, parades honoring our nation’s workers, and going through Fidelbogen’s timeline on Twitter looking for especially obtuse tweets from the always obtuse Men’s Renaissance Agitator and would-be philosopher-king of the Men’s Rights movement.
Yes, I know we just did Fidelbogen the other day, but we’re doing him again.
Because it’s my blog, that’s why!
And it’s worth it. Because Fidelbogen, who apparently fancies himself some sort of evil rhetorical genius taking down feminism with he power of his mighty words, has a knack for saying out loud what a lot of Men’s Rightsers think. As I pointed out the other day, he’s admitted straight up that he’s far more interested in attacking feminists than in actually helping men. Which is clearly the case with most MRAs, as evidenced by their complete and utter lack of accomplishment in the whole “actually helping men” arena.
In his tweets, he often goes further, exposing the dishonest nature of these attacks on feminism. Indeed, a good portion of his tweets are basically him twirling his moustache as he explains the devious trickery he’ll be using to take the evil feminists down.
Here he is in full supervillain mode:
One of Fidey’s favorite themes is that he and his MRA buddies can define feminism, so suck on that, femmies!
Indeed, he won’t shut up about it:
Yeah, dude. Trust us — we know.
And here he suggests he’s far more interested in pulling women down than in raising men up:
What’s this? Straight up misogyny?
Oh, sorry, misogyny doesn’t exist.
Or … does it?
Do try to keep your story straight, dude!
Fidey is the master of baffling metaphor:
Ok, that didn’t make sense. Let’s try this one:
Huh. Pisspots, however unsavory, do at least serve a useful function. Is Men’s Rights Activism thus the equivalant of peeing on the floor?
Too complicated. Fidey tries a simpler metaphor:
And then marches off into the land of incoherence once again.
And then accidentally stumbles upon a truth:
Read that one over again, Fidey, and take a good hard look at yourself.
