MRAs: Most inept propagandists ever?

Someone posted this image in the comments at A Voice for Men. As far as I can figure it, it depicts brave MRAs pulling down the allegedly evil Violence Against Women Act, which for some reason is represented by the Venus of Willendorf. Because women are fat? Or is just feminists who are fat? Or battered women?

Is every supposed MRA cause really just an excuse to talk shit about women?

Sorry to hear about Toby, hellkell. *hugs*

David, have you tried Weruva in the pouches (the tuna in pumpkin one seems to appeal to almost all cats), or the Fancy Feast appetisers? Those were the only foods my cat would eat towards the end, and they’re both very wet too so that helps with the dehydration issue.

If kitty likes stinky fish foods you might want to try Tiki Cat too if you haven’t already.

Wow, it’s like NWO was saving up all the bile and just couldn’t hang onto it anymore. Ugly, ugly.

Hellkell, belated condolences, and David, I hope your kitty gets well.

I don’t know about all cats, but my roommate’s cat loooves vanilla ice cream. Likes it more than tuna. (It’s a little gross sometimes–I’ll set a cup of ice cream on the counter, turn around for a second, and then the cat will have her face buried in my ice cream. Which is sorta cute, but man, that’s the same tongue she licks her butt with.)

It might just be that cat’s weird quirk, and I’m sure it’s not at all nutritionally appropriate for a cat diet, but it’s something to consider if the cat won’t touch fishy foods, just to get its appetite going again?

Cassandra, we tried the Tiki cat for Meg, because Lilly would bully her out of the dry food bowl, and we were both repulsed by that mess. She wouldn’t eat it, and now I know what Jello with fish chunks looks like.

Yeah, David, if there some kind of treat your cat likes, might be worth a shot.

David; having 13 cats we adopted all within a year or two 15 years ago, means we’ve been having a number who fail to eat for various health reasons–one of the BEST products we’ve found to get them to eat is Purina’s Fancy Feast Appetizers —

chunks of fish or meat, and gravy they love (we also have to have one of our elderly gentlemen in regularly for subcutaneous fluids which helps as well).

Good luck!

My old cat’s favorite thing in the world was cookies and cream ice cream. I know cats aren’t supposed to be able to taste sweet things, but I don’t actually believe it because, in addition to the ice cream, that cat would come running from the other side of the house any time I opened a bar of chocolate.

My cat will only drink milk when it’s had blueberries in it. (I put frozen blueberries on my cereal.) She also drinks my cold chamomile tea leftovers.. [Patented two dot ellipsis.] Anyway, cats are all totally idiosyncratic — it’s just good that David’s kitty has someone who will take the time to figure out what’s tasty! Mine like the brands that have no grains in them — Avoderm is their current favorite. Best of luck to David’s kitty!

What the hell? They came out of a Big Little Book* to collectively hang a Venus of Willendorf cozy?

It really drives misogynists nuts that rape is starting to be taken seriously as a crime, isn’t it? Even if they aren’t rapists themselves, they love the idea of being able to threaten a woman with rape if she gets out of line.

Ding ding ding

NWO is a malevolent pile of rabid bat guano and I don’t think he should be allowed to post anything besides kitten videos ever again.

Starting to? I’ve seen lynching photos which suggest rape was taken seriously for quite some time.

I haven’t been able to find a brand of food my kitty likes, including the grain-free ones. Does anyone have suggestions that I could try?

@IR: Not only misogynist as all get out, but racist as fuck and stone ignorant of history.

The causes of lynchings

darksidecat

Yep, ithiliana, it’s also worth noting just who was making the accusations and how they were happening even in rape accusation cases. It wasn’t all that uncommon for the purported “victim” to explicitly say they were not raped and had consented, or for a person who had consented to go along only to prevent being raped and murdered themselves in addition to their lover being murdered. Rape and murder of white women who admitted to sleeping with black men as a form of social punishment is historically common in the KKK, though these de facto lynchings and gang rapes tended to be a lot less public than those perpetrated against black people and immigrants. Likewise, KKK murders of queer people and rapes of queer women tended to be fairly common but less public. Because of the way USians tend to view power relations and public-private divides, the more public lynchings tend to get counted more than the more “private” assaults and violations (including numerous assaults, rapes, and murders of black people and immigrants as well)

I realize that in my sick snotty state, I really did phrase that last paragraph poorly in a lot of ways, I apologize for that. What the bulk of it should have said was something to the affect of “there were large amounts of both public and private violence against people of color and immigrants, and there was also not an insignificant amount of private violence in regards to sexism and homophobia as well.” I did not mean that the private sexist and homophobic violence outweighed either the public or private violence against people of color and immigrants. I apologize for phrasing it in a way that might have implied that.

I fully expect everyone who’s criticizing Rush Limbaugh for being fat and possibly gay to now criticize Rosie O’Donnell for being fat and actually gay.

IR: I am pretty sure the KKK also objected to consensual black man/white woman sex.

Dracula: Guys, I think I may have figured out where NWO comes up with this bullshit. He doesn’t believe in equality. Not only does he not think it’s desirable, he doesn’t think it’s possible. Like, it goes against the laws of nature or some shit.

Hate to rain on your parade, but NWO has said precisely that. One group must have it’s foot on the throat of the other, and he wants the stomping gender to be male.

His “theory of escalation” is how he thinks it should be brought about. He isn’t as “in the future some men will rise up if women don’t bend the knee to men.” He’s more, “Men have to beat women into submission, because if they don’t, men will themselves be beaten into submission.”

He’s delusional.

NWO: Ever gonna cite the passages you are so adamant about existing? The one’s where yelling at women is defined as abuse, but yelling at men is made legal?

Or the section which says it’s legal for women to murder men?

No?

Didn’t think so. Must be nice to go to church on a Sunday and think of all the false witness you’ve borne.

And I see that my trip to Calif. co-incided with the banning of another dirtbag. I”m going to miss him less than I don’t miss Brandon.

Yeah, I know he’s said that. I was just trying to illustrate my point, that this belief of his is the only reasonable explanation for where he gets his “facts” about the VAWA.

“Is every supposed MRA cause really just an excuse to talk shit about women?”

That and providing the impetus for Tea Party anti-women legislation.
