This Just In: Reddit MRAs don’t know crap about rape prevention, but still have strong opinions about it

So over on the Men’s Rights subreddit, the top post at the moment (with more than 370 net upvotes) is a link to this image:

If I might hazard a guess: that’s because IT HAS YOU NUMBSKULLS.

Sigh. Let’s look at a little chart showing the striking decline in the incidence of rape we’ve seen in the last 30 years.

rapedecline

This is based on data from the National Crime Victimization Survey. Some have criticized the survey’s methodology and say that it undercounts the incidence of rape, but even if that is true, the trend is clear: Rape has declined significantly over the past three decades, and I think it’s fairly obvious that increased awareness and understanding of rape, largely the result of feminist anti-rape campaigns, has contributed significantly to this decline.

Naturally, those who tried to point this out in r/mensrights found themselves downvoted.

Lol, a dozen angry responses to my one comment, not bad. Kudos to Mr Manboobz for allowing my troll through, would’ve got me insta-banned from most internet hugboxes.

@LBT

RE: ProfessorJimboSpice

No, no, no, you’re going about this all wrong. I’M the one you should be saying that too, dumbass. Here you are, going after Kittehs, and missing me as the more obvious target. I mean, I made a fucking ZINE about my relationship!

*shakes head* Foolish trolls, always making the silly mistakes. Sorry, Kittehs.

Well LBT, your imaginary relationship doesn’t raise quite the same dilemma as an imaginary relationship with a historical figure… Can the spirit of a long dead French monarch consent, or is it akin to necrophilia? Even if consciousness remains after death the living are clearly in a position of privilege due to their physical existence and relationships between the two seem inherently unequal and exploitative. Imo, such behaviour only reinforces rape culture.

Did anyone email David for a sock check?

Yup. Dunno if it’s a sock or not, but he’s banned it.

Jimbo: Either there is no real relationship (in which case no lack of consent), or there is,and we can assume Mr. K is consenting.

It’s not that hard.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

we can assume Mr. K is consenting.

Enthusiastically!

Let’s all ignore the sock, shall we? I would far rather see pics of hellkell’s new kitten.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

The sock’s been banned, so sucks to them.

Seconding the vote for hellkell kitty pics!

Some Gal Not Bored at All

Yay for banning assholes! And there are going to be kitten pics? Sweet.

At this point we should probably respond to any new troll with a silly name and an obvious desire to upset people with “Hi, Mr Al. You’re still banned”.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

You’d think he’d have learned by now that he’s wasting his time doing that. He doesn’t know the difference between “upset” and “scorn with a tinge of disgust”.

Some Gal Not Bored at All

He obviously is really upset at Steele being found out if he’s so over-the-top offensive now!

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

Oh, he’s been over-the-top offensive in times past, I think. But it is … pleasing … to think he’s pissed off at being outed.

Some Gal Not Bored at All

I know he has, but it was always prompted by something. (Normally something rather innocuous that just hit some weird soft spot of his, but something.)

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

Y’know what I think hits his soft spots? People who are happy. Joy is not an emotion that MRAs in general seem to have any acquaintance with.

Or possibly he was mortally offended that anyone would side-eye a bloke who wants to wank into a fleshlight with a picture of a woman’s headless, anonymous torso attached.

In this case I think the sore spot is the idea of people judging the behavior of sexually frustrated men.

WTF does Louis XIII have to do with anything? (Whatever it was, I missed it.)

It was a family resemblance dealio that the dirty smelly sock willfully misunderstood.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

No, thebewilderness, Louis is Mr Kitteh. Or Mr Kitteh is Louis, whichever way you want to put the sentence. Not reincarnation, his spirit. 🙂

whataboutthemoonz – Argenti and lowquacks and LBT and I were having a really good conversation about seventeenth century fashion on the Happy Damn New Year thread, and socky decided to have a go about it. He got royally* taken down elsewhere before being banned.

*pun intended

Kitteh’s: according to Wiki, Mr. Kitteh’s and I share a birthday. Cool.

I’m glad BimboSpice got banned. It’s so sad that they hate any happiness.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

Whoa, way cool, hellkell!

It freaked me a bit when I found that Bruce Springteen (who I use for my pics of Mr K ’cause they look very similar) has a birthday only four days earlier. Imagine if it’d been the same day! :O

And on other important topics – have you and Mr H had any thoughts on names for the lovely Ferocious Biscuits boy? You’re right, Trip isn’t the name for him. Makes him sound like one of the Palin offspring.

Well, Mr. HK has floated the name Russell Sherman Lynch, after three Seattle Seahawk players. I kind of like Sherman. There’s also Biscuit and Momotaro (peach boy from Japanese folklore).

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

I like Sherman. Makes me think of Sherman T. Potter. 🙂

Or if he had dark whiskers you could call him Pierre … say, Pierre’s cat is ginger!

My cat has three names so I heartily support that. (Her name links to my real name or I’d share.)

Pierre has a cat! Did you see the happy new year comic?

A dear friend of mine had a beautiful orange kitty named Sherman, who was as dumb as a rock but incredibly affectionate and fluffy.
Here’s Shermiepie not too long before he died, poor dear.
And here’s my sister holding Molly, my girl tabby. Yes, that is the kitchen wallpaper I grew up with. This may explain many things about my personality.

Since he has almost the right coloring you could name him after this little guy from The Great Yokai War.

(I know we were talking about issues with Miike the other day, but Yokai War is awesome. It’s for kids so there’s no creepy weirdness.)

You should have seen the wallpaper in my bedroom. No pictures, sadly.

I wanted Star Wars wallpaper for a while but my parents very sensibly limited me to a duvet cover, pillowcases, and curtains.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

Oh my!

I was lucky, the bedroom I had longest as a kid had wood walls, so I was able to stick stuff all over them without wrecking paint. Maddening thing about the house we’re in now is that the lease says no pictures stuck or hung up at all. I tried those suction-cup picture hooks but they just fall off. 🙁

Don’t bother trying near anywhere humid though, the ones by my fish tank lasted only a matter of days (the ones holding up art elsewhere work great though)

I missed that, and seem to have closed that thread. I’m assuming it was Al, and he was his usual clueless self?

For lighter objects you can try the adhesive putty they use for museums. Museum Tack, and it’s ilk.

“For lighter objects you can try the adhesive putty they use for museums. Museum Tack, and it’s ilk.”

Ah yeah, the blue stuff, works great on posters and papers and the like. Not so much for mounted canvas, hence my use of command strips.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

Pecunium, it was the twit trying to have a go at me and Mr K – you answered him. It was worth having that jackass (whether Mr Al or not) show his ass so badly to read all the responses! 🙂

Thanks to you and Argenti re: the wall hanging stuff, I’ll see if they sell those or equivalent products here. If it’s something I can peel off easily, I can pull stuff down when we have our *&^%^%$ six-monthly house inspections.

I’ve found one way of getting some stuff up is putting a drawing pin or similar on top of a door or pelmet and hanging it from a cord or chain attached. Rather necessary for calendars (and one has to have calendars because kitty photos).
