Kevin Federline-andry: The most pressing men’s human rights issue of our age?

Presented, without comment — ok, besides this comment, and the comment in the title of the post — is this headline from the Men’s Rights subreddit:

Kevin Federline received $13 million from his divorce with Brittany Spears. Would he have gotten more if genders swapped?

Thanks once again to AgainstMensRights for finding this one.

Also, it’s BRITNEY. Not Brittany. Britney. One T, followed by NEY. B-R-I-T-N-E-Y. It’s not hard to remember.

About David Futrelle

I run the blog We Hunted the Mammoth, which tracks (and mocks) online misogyny. My writing has appeared in a wide variety of places, including Salon,, the Washington Post, the New York Times Book Review and Money magazine. I like cats.

  1. emilygoddess — luckily no one here likes raisins, and grapes don’t last very long around me! But thanks for the reminder.

    And yeah, the dog is big, problem is the cat happily eats from his bowl, and she, obviously, isn’t an 80 lb dog.

    It’s not the using the stomach part that gets me, it’s the eating it part. Drying it as a pouch would make utter sense for example. You’re right though, it probably was out of necessity and romanticizing why the Native Americans use(d) all the parts is a shit ton of stupid. I don’t eat hotdogs though, soy dogs for me please!

  2. RE: Kittehs

    (Actually those horrible things were around in the 60s. My brother had a couple. I loathed ‘em, not least because they had no craniums.)

    I am shocked that those creepy things had enough of a following to be around for thirty years. Yeesh!

    RE: DefJam

    There’s no woman-hating at There’s some well-earned anger and heated jocularity,

    I love how a lot of these guys act like being an asshole is a part of all male bonding. Like, if I wanted people to be an asshole to me, I’d just join a random chat room or go to 4chan. Do I have to give up my man card now because I like to bond with people by mutual kindness, not mutual, “Lolz, women am I right?”

    RE: titianblue

    What do you think hot dogs are made from, precisely? ;-)

    Oh god, don’t remind me. I saw a How They’re Made on that once and it turned me off hot dogs for life. D:

    RE: emilygoddess

    @LBT, I haven’t been following all the borg-critter comments. Do you have a parrot of any kind?

    Nope, no parrot so far, only a secretary bird! If you DO sponsor a parrot, however, unless you have a specific breed in mind, I’ll probably do the kakapo.
