The Men’s Rights subreddit: Fighting imaginary enemies, since 2008

To arms, Men’s Rights Redditors! Evil feminists are running riot on Wikipedia, deleting pages devoted to books by MRA hero Warren Farrell!

 

Oops. False alarm! Turns out WillToHave doesn’t quite understand how Wikipedia works. As one commenter pointed out several hours after the post went up, no pages about Farrell’s books have actually been deleted. The reason there are no pages about most of his books is … that no one has bothered to put any up yet.

D’oh! MRAs aren’t being oppressed by feminists; they’re being oppressed by their own laziness.

Of course, the only ones who know this are those who’ve bothered to actually read the comments. 15 hours after being totally debunked, the post, with its misleading headline, remains near the top of the Men’s Rights subreddit, with 142 net upvotes.

@Viola, I used to wear skirts on occasion back in my hippie college days. They’re quite comfortable.

The only context I’ve heard someone say that a person has a mangina is when they meant anus. (Which unfortunately frequently comes coupled with fratboy homophobia and/or transphobia.)

“You have an anus” is a pretty weak insult, there.

They are comfy. Also attractive, or at least I personally find long swishy skirts attractive. Sadly, they are also very femme, so I avoid wearing them.

@Kirby,

Yeah…he’s going to need to go ahead and come in on Sunday to do that. We’ve lost some trolls last week, and we need to play catch up.

Let me tell you, after a long day of looting and pillaging, there is no greater city than Gomorrah… except maybe Sodom.

Remember when I said -1 if he doesn’t stick the flounce, make that -2 for another “joke” — 1/10 for that flounce.

I am, at this very moment, at a conference with thousands of librarians, strategizing about how best to share information — including holding discussions of legislation we support and oppose. We’re TERRORISTS!!!!! (cloudiah immediately implements super-secret terrorist cell structure, adopts nom de guerre “buttercup”)

@hellkell:

And he has a very high IQ.

That’s the only thing that could explain how suddenly we’re talking about militant lesbians, despite that not being a reference to anything said earlier in this thread.

Why lesbians? When did we start talking about lesbians? Is this just free-association Paul has with feminists? And where did militancy come in? Who is being militant, for what purpose did he bring this adjective up?

So confused 🙁 🙁 🙁

I’m a feminist, I’m married AND I have two cats! I’d have more, but we don’t have the room!
Anyway, I’m off to share a post-work cold beer and a slice of pizza with my husband before I got to bed. I’ll try not to murder him and blame it on being pre-menstrual, Paul!

PS. In all seriousness, BBC Four are doing a weekend of David Bowie documentaries and we’ve been having pretty heated discussions about what’s the best Bowie album. It’s not, and is highly unlikely to, come to blows however.

Hopefully it isn’t that annoying short guy… I mean, I know we play nice when he’s around, but my god that eye! O_O Weirds me out everytime I remember that picture he posted once.

Yup. Sure glad it isn’t him. Yup.

Shorty.

So, just a completely random question here, how many of the women here would turn Russell Brand down flat?

I know we’ve moved on from here, but where in all of the Cranky Man Internet did Paul find this?

Two Different Laws We Live In

Unequal Time for Equal Crime

ITEM. A man convicted of murder is twenty times more likely than a woman convicted of murder to receive the death penalty.

ITEM. No woman who has killed only men has been executed in the United States since 1954.

ITEM. Since the 1976 reinstatement of the death penalty, 120 men – and only 1 woman – have actually been executed. The woman, from North Carolina, said she preferred to be executed.

The last time any of that would have been true was 1997.

Well sure he’s rich and good looking, but why go for two out of three when you can easily get all three, like with Idris Elba or something.

Russell Brand is creepy. That’s the worst thing you can call a man, amirite?

My boyfriend has one deformed eye. It’s a shame. Really ruins his appearance. If he weren’t so tall I could never be attracted to him.

Schwyzer was okay when he was talking shit about men, but then he went and fucked it up by being mean to a woman

@hellkell

I haven’t! I have it, but haven’t had time to start it yet. I’ve heard mixed review about it, but after Stringer Bell I wonder if people just set the bar ridiculously high for him

Shadow: season one is pretty amazing. Season two strains credulity in a few places, but Elba is still great. He and Ruth Wilson have crazy chemistry.

Short guys? They are the worst. Especially if they have morning and evening heights. Like fucking gremlins, they are.

Oh God, you know what’s fun? When guys ask me for dates and I get to turn them down. I swear, it’s like this little head rush. It just reminds me how much more important I am than them.

Please, if that’s what you consider “abuse” no wonder there are so many men in jail.

Sort of like what women consider “abuse” when they call the cop’s.

Literally an hour ago. We’re on for Thursday.

Sorry to derail your “I’ll rub her nose in how Forever Alone she is” fantasies. Dont’ worry, it would’ve been nice and petty if I happened to be single!
