A dude named Sizzletron shares his “honest opinions that are entirely merit-based, about women.” (Spoiler alert: They actually aren’t.)
Posted by David Futrelle
It’s Friday. Why not welcome in the upcoming weekend with a picture of an anarchist cat and a completely unrelated, completely unhinged manifesto from the MensRants subreddit, the Men’s Rights subreddit’s unruly younger brother.
In a post with the somewhat roundabout title “Just posting this publicly gives me an ulcer. But I won’t let it stop me,” an angry fella who calls himself sizzletron set forth his opinions about, well, a lot of things having to do with women. It’s a piece that’s pretty much impossible to summarize, since sizzletron apparently finds it difficult to keep the thread of an argument going from one sentence to the next.
Let’s dig in:
I think most women are very unfamiliar with being challenged to be better adults. I also think I have a lot of honest opinions that are entirely merit-based, about women.
We’re off to a good start with two sentences that have no logical connection to one another aside from the fact that their author is really, really mad at women.
I think that collectively most women, in the West especially, don’t have an understanding of ANY motivation that doesn’t support women blindly.
Uh, what? Motivation? I’m beginning to get the impression that sizzletron chooses a lot of his words by flipping through books and pointing at random selections.
For example, chivalry should dead and gone by now. I know it. Most guys who aren’t trying to get laid dishonestly know it. So why do women persist with claiming some sort of implicit right to it? Because it obviously benefits them to have men do shit for them, protect them (often from themselves, which would be hilarious were the net result so often fatal, or judicial, again for men), provide for them, admire them, pedestalize them. Feminism isn’t helping women. It’s putting baby in a very stupid, very un-respectable corner.
What does this even mean? How is chivalry the same as “putting baby in the corner.” Also, since when are feminists the ones promoting chivalry/
But sizzletron quickly moves on to a new topic: women’s intelligence.
Women are getting stupider by the day. Not hyperbole. Intelligence isn’t getting book smart. Intelligence is problem solving on your own without the agency of a mob apparatus.
What? What agency? What mob? What apparatus? WHAT IS GOING ON?
Ask me how much I actually respect the advances, societally, of a mob of hairshirts-for-men feminists? Not even a bit.
Wait, feminists are making men wear hairshirts? Even as a weird metaphorical accusation that makes no sense. People in certain religious traditions wore hairshirts as a way to show repentance; they didn’t force other people to wear them.
Now how many of those same organizations and feminists are alluded to lamely in a debate-by-the-numbers exercise that regularly passes for a discourse on gender relations?
Ok, I give up. I have no idea what the hell he’s even trying to say here.
You know what I do everyday?
Smoke weed? Read the “Ziggy” cartoon in the newspaper? Have a bowel movement?
I read the fashion mags my GF’s sister bequeaths us. My respect for women has absolutely PLUMMETED since I started doing so. Vacuous, vagina-centric, vapid, vicarious, venereal-in-waiting. All the ‘V’ words.
Uh, vicarious? “Venereal-in-waiting?” If you were going for something that was even vaguely coherent, you probably should have stopped with “vapid.”
But Mike, what about the good women, they aren’t all self-interested limelight addicts expecting money for nothing and sex for free. No, you’re very correct about that.
Ooh, a Dire Straits reference. It doesn’t actually make much sense, but way to show you’re up to the minute with what the cool kids are listening to these days.
But they aren’t calling out the chickenshit manipulations of the modern feminist message, either: You can be a strong respectable female AND a major victim when it bloody well suits you to do so. You can identify with abused women even if you’ve never been abused.
Yeah, I think that’s called “empathy.”
Blindly protect women without ever asking how much of the modern women’s plight is due to or contributed to by stupid women. Let’s start IQ testing all the victims of abuse and see what the median average is.
You’re going to blame the victims of domestic violence because you think they’re “stupid?” Really?
Really. Let’s do it! We’ll never know if I’m right until we do.
You’re an even bigger asshole than I thought. And I already thought you were a huge asshole.
Let’s start statistically plotting women’s propensity for violence, for ignorance, for mindless sorority.
Yeah, I’d love to see THAT chart.
Let’s start calling women out for being shallow appearance-concerned adults with a blind eye to the very pretense of such. No one really cares about your fucking furniture, or your sense of style.
Wait. Now you’re mad at women for having nice furniture?
No one of ANY value gives a shit about that stuff. Blowhards do. Frauds do. People who can’t DO, do.
Backing away now.
It is high time women grew the fucking pair they keep insisting they have, or STFU about it already. You’re starting to look like fools. I can’t ignore it any longer.
STFU about what? What is “it?”
And to all the white knights out there, stow it. <===This last line is for the benefit of my FB ‘friends’.
What a treat it must be to have Mike/Sizzletron here in your Facebook feed.
