Fake Spooge and Rape Jokes: A new frontier in Men’s Rights activism?

So over on the Men’s Rights subreddit – you know, the old one, not its newfangled would-be replacement – the fellas are complaining about how oppressive it is for a university to put up signs suggesting that consent is good and rape is bad.

Clearly, these signs are an insult to non-rapist men, in the same way that “don’t feed the animals” signs in zoos are an insult to those of us who aren’t planning to feed the animals.

Happily, the dude calling himself anti-everyone has come up with a way to fight back against this feminazi tyranny:

Is the Poster Revolution moving to its next stage?

Ugh, don’t get me started on the crapfest that is the state of healthcare in America. People should not be forced to choose between medical care and food.

Just to connect this back to thread a little bit…

It was the first time I ever gave myself permission to cry when I was sad. I just sat in my bathtub and sobbed for an hour. It was incredibly cathartic.

It was the first time that I realized my dad, who I generally think of as pretty sensitive, is completely unable to do anything in the face of sorrow and mourning. I told him what had happened and he left the room to go get my mother.

I told him my cat had died, and he had to leave the room and go get my mother.

That’s so sad to me that men still feel so much pressure to always be stoic and hide their pain. My dad’s like your dad. He always puts on a brave face and even makes jokes whenever something upsets him, and it’s probably because the whole “boys don’t cry” rule was a bigger deal to baby boomers and older men. He didn’t cry at his mom’s funeral, and instead took it upon himself to comfort other people, because he thinks that a man’s job is to always be the strong one. He did cry, however, right after the tornado, when I first got a hold of him. He thought we were dead, so finding out that we were alive made him so relieved, he cried. For once, I actually comforted him and made jokes to help him feel better.

A few months later, I comforted a carpet installer who cried because of his experience. He felt bad that he had heard a man screaming, trapped under rubble, and he was unable to lift the heavy debris to rescue him. He told him, “Hang on, I’m going to try to get you some firefighters or someone with heavy equipment to help” and the guy said, “I’m scared, don’t leave me”. But the guy had to leave him there alone so that he could go find extra help. He told me how bad he felt about it, but I said “You did what you had to do so that he could actually get dug out”. But that guilt was just eating him up to know the man felt alone and he had to leave him anyway.

That’s just what people do, though. They are so hard on themselves and blame themselves for circumstances that are beyond their control. It’s easy to reassure other people that feel guilt but it’s hard to be as forgiving to yourself. I don’t know what to say except I’m sorry to blitzgal, Nanasha, David, and Wetherby who feel guilt like that. None of you all did anything wrong. It’s just that life is unpredictable, and there’s no way to prevent everyone you care about from ever suffering. I wish that were possible. Instead, bad things happen, and then we go back in our minds trying to figure out what we could have done differently to change the outcome.

Blah. It just goes to show that life has a way of kicking you extra hard when you’re down.

I’m sorry for all you’re going through, Nanasha. Not only do you have all of the physical parts of pregnancy, but now you’re under financial pressure and your poor kitty is sick. *Hugs*

Man. Crying at work again. At least I can blame it on preggo hormones.

Big Jedi mind hugs and baked goods of choice to everyone who has lost a critter. We had to put down our mini schnauzer almost three years ago. We did everything – just absolutely *everything* (spent ALL our savings, every dollar) to save him and I still cry myself to sleep some nights thinking we could have made him All Better if we’d just kept fighting.

It’s just so easy to love pets so, so hard.

My husband just sent me an update. They have Neb on IV fluids to help with the dehydration and will do a physical exam once he starts holding down food. So fat they think that there is no blockage, so I am crossing my fingers.

If the vet doesn’t think it’s a blockage, then that’s positive news. Doesn’t mean that Neb is out of the woods, but it’s a step in that direction. Sincerest wishes that the news keeps improving. *crosses toes for good measure*

Suuuuuper happy news, all. I just got off the phone with my husband and Neb is doing well. The IV fluids flushed out his system and rehydrated him and they gave him some tummy soothing medication. He is definitely NOT blocked and just got home and is purring in my husband’s lap. We are going to try and add a wet food feeding to the evening as well as morning and give him minimal kibble for his grazing during the day.

All of your thoughts and positive energy is soooo appreciated. I am just happy that our little fuzzy family member is home!

All the kitty stories are making me weepy. Damn you, manboobzers, you’ll make my mascara run!

I still blame myself for my kitty’s kidney failure – for giving him dry food, for not realizing he was getting sick sooner, for not being able to save him at the end. I had him for 19 years – it’s natural to blame yourself, and if you’re a good pet person you’ll always second guess yourself to some extent, but unfortunately we can’t control everything. Nanasha – you’re doing everything you can. I’m just glad you finally figured out what was wrong.

The conversation has moved on but NWO, you’re pathetic.

EXCUSE ME SIR DID YOU GET A SIGNED CONTRACT TO TOUCH THAT BREAST

This would be the weirdest trial ever:

Judge: Case number XXXXXXXX, Plaintiff v Defendant. Please announce.

Plaintiff: I am plaintiff your honor.
Defendant: I am defendant your honor.

Judge: opening statement, Plaintiff.

Plaintiff: Your honor, we are here today because after intense negotiations, I and the Defendant signed an agreement saying I could touch the breast. After signing, I attempted to touch the breast and the Defendant refused to honor our agreement. I am seeking court costs and the Court to enforce the contract and order the Defendant to let me touch the breast.

Judge: You mean a chicken breast?

Plaintiff: No, her breast, on her chest.

Judge: Are you joking? Please tell me you are joking.

Plaintiff: No your honor, she signed this agreement and I demand you enforce the agreement.

Judge *checking number of minutes until retirement…*: No.

So true, Cassandra. My darling girl left us three years back – she lost weight rapidly, I got her tested and it was a massive cancer on her liver, spreading all around. Nothing we could do except give her palliative treatment, and she only stayed about three weeks after the diagnosis (which was pretty much the timeline our vet said to expect). But I still feel bad that she passed from heart failure: I didn’t recognise its symptoms, only that she was in pain, and she passed with one mighty kick, lying on my lap in the back of my sister’s car as we were taking her to the vet to be euthanased. If I’d known she was entering that phase I’d have sent her Home sooner.

Happier story: this morning Cat 2 ambushed Cat 1 (who’s quite elderly) and gave her a biff across the nose. Cat 1 gave her a couple of good ones back and Cat 2 instantly did the screwed-up-face “Mum! She hit me!” thing. Oy.

Neb is chilling on his cushy “throne” at the door. He’s got curiously human-like eyes- when he looks at me, it’s like he knows what i’m thinking. I’m just hoping that we don’t have more sickness issues tonight. *crosses fingers*

@Myoo- I don’t mind either way- when I wanted to update my Gravatar, “Nanasha” was taken (boo).

@KittehServant

It was cancer that got my kitty in the end – after getting the renal failure under control he was doing so well for nearly 3 years, and then boom, cancer. By the time we found it it had already metastasized, so it was too late to do much, and he hated going to the vet so much that I decided not to put him through weekly chemo. Amazingly enough he lasted about 3 months with massively metastasized cancer in all his internal organs, and didn’t seem to be in any pain until the last couple of days. I guess by then I was already an expert kitty nurse. He died at home, in my arms. I second guessed myself about that too, whether I should have taken him in to be put to sleep, but given how much he hated vets I think allowing him to pass at home in my arms where he felt safe rather than at the vet with a catheter in (they insisted they’d have to do that, which is one of the reasons I chose not to go that route) was the right decision.

I miss my kitty. I felt horribly guilty when I had to have her put down last year. And it wasn’t because I thought I had failed her or anything like that. I knew there was nothing I could do for her, I just wanted so badly to be able to explain to her that I was only trying to spare her the pain she was going through, that I could make her understand I was doing my best to do the right thing. I just didn’t want her to hurt anymore.

I’m sorry, kitty. 🙁

Neb is a cutie, and I hope a healthy one now! So lucky you adopted him… It IS hard to take a good picture of a black cat, even a striped black tabby like my Hazel. The light worked for that one, and I like the fact that Buster is there in the background.
