Katherine Heigl: Ballbusting bigot?

That's not funny?

Most people who hate Katherine Heigl hate the actress because she seems like a bit of a diva, or because she keeps appearing in annoying rom-coms, including one with Ashton Kutcher that hurts my head when I even think about it. The fellas at Register-Her.com have another reason: she hates balls.  As in, testicles.

Well, not really. What the Register-Her fellas are worked up about is a PSA she did for Funny or Die in which she claims to be in favor of neutering pets not because she loves animals but simply because she hates balls so much. At one point she declares, tongue firmly in cheek:

I can’t cut the nuts off human men … yet. So, I’ve dedicated my time to the neutering of dogs, cause that’s legal.

The joke here, as any rational person can plainly see, isn’t that cutting off balls is inherently hilarious. The joke is that an actress with a reputation as a diva is basically doing her critics one better by portraying herself as a deranged, narcissistic, supremely creepy ball-hater.  And she’s spoofing her own bad reputation for a genuinely good cause: reducing cat and dog overpopulation and therefore the number of unwanted animals that are put to death in our nation’s animal shelters.

Of course that’s not how the fellas at Register-Her.com see it. And so they’ve put Heigl on their faux “offender registry” as a “bigot.” Their explanation?

The actress’s willingness to endorse male targeted sexual mutilation betrays a bigoted indifference to sexual violence, and justifies her inclusion on this registry in the category of bigot.

Presumably the fellas at Register-Her will next go after the people who have posted the more than twenty thousand YouTube videos that feature dudes getting hit in the nuts. Surely these videos, which feature actual violence against actual human balls are a far graver threat to the balls of the world than even Katherine Heigl.

The Register-Her Action Squad might start by tracking down the (admittedly quite ingenious) ball-hating dudes involved in this video.

And then move on to all the ball-hating bigots featured here:

And here are 50 more:

Better track down the ghost of Scott Joplin, too, for providing the music to the last one from beyond the grave.

Eventually register-her will achieve its ultimate goal of documenting all known and suspected women in the world.

Also, I half wish they’d direct threats and stalking against her, not because I wish that on her but because she has access to the law firm of Not, Fucking, & Around. Something tells me they aren’t going to be as “brave” about harassing her as they are with some powerless mommyblogger or college students.

It also reminds me of the Idiocracy discussion we had last week. Are they gonna put Mike Judge on there for creating the fictional “Ow my Balls” TV show that was in the movie?”

Anyway. I’m sure that will totally ruin her career.

Are ball-cutting jokes tasteless? yep. But so are rape jokes. Racist jokes, sexist jokes, dead baby jokes…but these still exist. There are going to exist no matter what we do. Have they ever listened to death metal? many of those lyrics are all about raping and mutilating women as well as various other nasty stuff. Comedians also still use these jokes. These guys are attacking freedom of speech and are trying to implement censorship. To be truly unbiased they should attack all tasteless and violent humor. But that again, would still be censorship.

And of course you wont find them attacking those youtube videos, because most of them are men hitting each other in the balls. Only women may be targeted for “bigotry” how ironic.

This is why I find it totally hypocritical when some MRAs claim they are libertarians. No. They only want freedom when it benifits them. But if someone else doesn’t adhere to their standards, they silence them.

Part of me suspects that this is a publicity stunt. If Heigl were to sue with ‘the law firm of Not, Fucking, & Around.’ a protracted law suit would give easy publicity and validity to their site. Slander/tort/libel suits are hard to win at the best of times and the RH team could probably get away with freedom of expression or even agreeing to merely remove Heigl, a small price to pay for the attention a suit would bring to the site.

‘This is why I find it totally hypocritical when some MRAs claim they are libertarians. No. They only want freedom when it benifits them. But if someone else doesn’t adhere to their standards, they silence them.’

As someone mentioned recently, there is several kind of humor. This video is definitely in the “haha, this is ridiculous and that would never never happen”. Btw, I put many dead babies joke in the same category: “haha, what we’re telling is horrible but we would never do that”
But yeah, if they’re going after ball-hater, they should really start with videos of people kicking each other in the nut or montage of nut-related accident.

Tell me about it. Women are children, women need to be guided, women are dumber, women are by nature manipulative whores, etc… I’ve heard it all on there. So where’s register-him.com?

I don’t remember the asshole’s name, but the worst has to be the guy who said all baby girls should be required to have their voice boxes removed so they can’t speak when they grow up. Sickening.

What do I fucking care? Meller is our resident self proclaimed libertarian troll and he wants to force all non-virgins into sexual slavery. All you MRAs are the same to me, no matter what site you congregate on. I haven’t found one MRA who isn’t a misogynistic asshole that blames feminism for all his problems. Besides, MRA’s think all feminists are man haters no matter how many times we tell you otherwise, so why should I offer MRAs the benefit of the doubt when MRAs won’t for feminists?

I think MRAL’s joke dissects down to:

“Katherine Heigl is like a man (because she’s not really a woman! har!) but a bad man and therefore a mangina (because even though she’s a man she’s not a Real Man so I guess she’s a woman again! har!)”

Maybe I’m reading too much into it, but that’s what I get. It’s quite a tangled web of misgendering.

Then, Ullere, does white supremacist saying “whites are better than black” completely equal anti-racist activist saying “white supremacists are racist assholes”?
Both sides are not always equals.

Also, we don’t have simili-bots insulting everybody on MRA forum. So, I don’t know if we’re better but we’re definitely different.

We still wait for one self declared MRA group that actually does something for men’s rights and does not despise women.

One of three things just happened:

1) Someone stole MRAL’s screen name and posted his signature line in a context that makes him look like an utter fool.

2) One of several people who’ve been trolling us for months under the persona of MRAL finally decided to blow the game by acting in a completely nonsensical manner.

3) MRAL, having realized at least a bit of the error of his ways, decided to indulge in a bit of self-parody.

I know the chance for #3 is slim, but I’m rooting for it anyway.

@Ullere

All I’m saying is that I’m not gonna make an effort to give MRAs the benefit of the doubt when they don’t bother to give feminists any. I’ve never done anything bad to any man nor have I advocated for anything bad to happen to men, but according to them I’m a man hating feminist who should be disposed of or worse. You really think I’m going to react kindly to someone who despises me? Also Erin Pizzey is pretty anti-feminist from what I heard. She seems to blame all feminists for the shelter issue rather than just the radicals.

If you act hostile to someone, their instinct is to act with hostility in return. Simple as that.

The fact that these assholes have a “registry” is clearly mocking the registries of actual, real sex offenders. It’s extremely insensitive, and it makes you wonder how many of them are rapists. And the fact that they can’t take a joke at all means that they have no right to criticize feminists or women in general for supposedly not having a sense of humor. These dick-wads are just a bunch of whining, sniveling woman-haters who can’t stand the thought of losing male privilege. Screw them. On second that, better not.

@Ullere:

Both camps have radicals of course, but it seems to me that with the MRM, the radical section is largely representative of the movement rather than simply existing on the fringes. With regards to feminism, you can of course find a bunch of radical misandric blogs but you can find hundreds of sites and organizations and self-proclaimed feminists that would condemnd the radicals. What MRM groups do you think represent mainstream MRM views?

Ullere
Ullere
9 years ago

Honestly I couldn’t say that the MRM has a set mainstream view, it’s not monolithic like that. However on this blog many of the scandinavian mra sites were outraged at avfm’s decision to bounty I’d consider them quite moderate, the sites usually linked here are american based, which I believe has the largest mrm and so would probably have the largest/loudest radical element. It’s hard to work out exactly what the MRM’s goals are, I have asked self annouced Mra’s before but to no avial. I guess it’s easier to point out injustices than to solve them.

I have alot of sympathy for the father for jusitce guys, they seem quite mainstream and moderate to me as a group, however they really only touch on one section of mens rights.

The blog http://noseriouslywhatabouttehmenz.wordpress.com/ is very mainstream and very liberal, however I suspect they would consider themselves gender egalitarians.

I should maybe mention the sites I have worked through so far, Manwomanmyth was the site that got me vaguely interested in gender issues, however he does seems to believe that feminism has harmed both men and women.

Bernard chapin is quite mainstream in the way that he has a very average guys outlook on things, however he loves mocking feminism also.

Manwomanmyth is bullshit. They have and all or nothing view, false dichotomies and everything they say can be refuted. And like many MRAs they refuse to acknowledge past discrimination of women. They think that just because men fought in wars and died that automatically erases every discrimination or oppression women have faced and still do face in other parts of the world. It’s not a zero sum game.

Bernard Chapin said he loves Schopenhauer’s On Women essay (read it in one of his youtube comments) it is one of the most misogynistic things I have ever read and calls for our subordination. That’s all I need to know about his so called libertarian views.

If you’re trying to convince me you’re moderate, you’re doing a pretty shitty job.

also the assertion that feminism harmed women basically translates to MRAs and other traditionalist types telling ALL women they were happier being stuck in the home relying on a husband for economic support. In other words, women don’t know what they want and freedom is slavery amirite?

I have alot of sympathy for the father for jusitce guys, they seem quite mainstream and moderate to me as a group, however they really only touch on one section of mens rights.

i don’t know fathers for justice, but a lot of the ‘father’s rights’ groups share a similar problem, one that you see in a lot of single-issue, ideologically driven groups- they’re great as long as you agree with them on their basic issue, but as soon as you start to disagree on solutions, they freak out and start to regard you as part of the problem
