Man Boobz Party Time President’s Day Pledge Drive!

Party on, dude!
Party on, dude!

If you aren’t too worn out by all the Presidents’ Day revelry — and the ritual Donning of the Fake Lincoln Beards — I would like to welcome you to the first edition of the 2013 Man Boobz Pledge Drive! (There will be 3 in all.)

I’ll try to keep this brief and repeat what I said last time: If you enjoy this blog, and can afford it, please click on the “donate” button below and sending a few bucks my way. Or, if you’d prefer, a massive quantity of bucks. You don’t need a PayPal account to donate; you can use a credit card, and I think there are other options as well.

There’s a bit more urgency to my request this time: I’m really and truly broke at the moment. Things should get better later in the year, but right now I could use all the help I can get.

I appreciate any and all contributions. And I’d also like to do a quick shout-out to the those who send me much needed $ between pledge drives, whether these are one-shot deals or regular infusions.

That said, if you’re also broke and can’t swing a contribution now, I completely understand. There are lots of ways to contribute to this blog besides cold hard cash, and lots of you contribute enormously every day with smart and funny comments and cartoons and silly parody MRA posters and so on and so on. Which is awesome. It’s the community here that keeps me going.

So thanks!

Oh, and if you need more persuading, here’s Tom Baker (no, really) begging for bucks during a PBS pledge drive.

Done. Money’s a little funny right now so it’s not as much as I’d like, will try and donate again when things improve.

Please only send comments on how to acquire a female when the guy is broke.

Can’t stop laughing. I can’t recall a more bemusing introduction

I kind of want to do an elaborate piece of performance art by making that into a zillion postcards and then mailing them to random addresses.

A female what? Female mice are free at PetMart with purchase of a cage.

katz, if the number was smaller than a zillion I might kick in some postage. 😉

How is it that guys who are total wankers seem never to have heard of masturbation? It is a mystery.

OMG, so glad I wasn’t drinking anything when I read this. I bow before your mastery of snark.

@Bostonian that’s terrible. I hate it when people treat mice – or any other animal – like cheap, disposable toys.

how to acquire a female

I think I see your problem.

And I will “send” any comments I goddamn want (provided David lets me). You don’t control the discussion here just because you say so.

(Wouldn’t really do it, of course, because I wouldn’t want to traumatize all the recipients. But I’m really curious as to what, if any, replies I’d get.)

@Katz you would probably get either PUA/bitter misogynist nonsense, or feminists yelling at you because that question is gross. So, this blog, basically 🙂

BUT IRL!

I really, really wanted to make poster-size posters of some of our MRA posters and put them up on campus, and install a hidden camera to film the reactions.

Hey David, if we made you a t-shirt out of the poster of your choice, would you wear it around Chicago for a while and report what happens? XD

Of course the folks that want to know how to acquire a female are often the folks that don’t understand what we mean when we say entitlement.
It is the same concept as the friendzone: entitlement. Don’t get me wrong I’ve fallen for friends and been rejected, but I don’t throw a hissy fit and whine on the internet because I don’t feel entitled to the men I like bodies or love.

The picture is Ileta and she is my dads dog. She is in love with my dad. Super jealous.

No wonder, she’s a cutie! What breed(s) is she?

I met the sweetest Doberman this morning. Great big boy who’s a professional Everybody’s Friend dog. 😀

Aww, that is a cute doggie melody. What a happy face.

Sheltie and who else knows. Shes a mutt. We aren’t entirely sure, but our vet says sheltie is in there.
And she is a happy dog. She is 5 years old.
We found her in a fred meyer parking lot. Stole my dads heart. His first dog (we’ve had others, but he wasn’t emotionally invested).

::slaps forehead:: I should have guessed sheltie was in there somewhere! She’s a bit like my sister’s boy Laddie (yeah, as in Lassie) is a sheltie-mystery cross. At least we think he is!

Ya, she most assuredly has some sheltie traits. She really is too adorable. I miss her. She is always super excited when I come visit or when she comes and visits me. I’m thinking next month I’ll put up Carmen. She is a chihuahua I never thought I’d like a chihuahua, but she is the exception. She can only use 3 of her legs. The other one is tucked up under her body….

Whats your kitties name?

I miss Ollie. I found him in the gutter outside our house, on Mother’s Day (IIRC) while walking the other dog.

He was, “my” dog. Other people were wonderful, but I was best. That sort of love is a humbling thing.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

My kitty is Madeleine, though she’s rarely called that – usually it’s just Maddie or Mads or Oh Lookit The Cute Kitty or Poor Little Put-Upon Cat. 🙂

@pecunium do you have pics of ollie?
@kitteh cats names are often what is convenient: JR ended up jr because we couldn’t come up with a name, but he also responds to being called monkey.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

My kits have all had their real official given names, but they usually get called by nicknames instead. Two of them ended up with fifty regularly used nicknames apiece – I counted ’em!
