Men’s Rights Redditors team with PUA douchebag Roosh V to raise money for alleged victims of feminism

femfund

Men! Worried that eveil feminists will destroy your life and your financial future because, apparently, they have that power and love to destroy men’s lives for fun?

Fear no more, because Reddit’s Men’s Rightsers have your back! Mods of Reddit’s RedPill subreddit have started something called the Feminist Victims Fund, which will enable brave freedom fighters to send what will inevitably be a tiny amount of money to that dude who got fired after Adria Richards complained about a sexist joke he made, even though it wasn’t Richards who fired him and indeed she’s said she hopes he gets hired back!

Make sure you donate now, because Reddit’s MRAs will soon grow bored with this bold initiative and it will be completely forgotten, much like the massive Sink Misandry protest in Washington DC last year which actually didn’t even happen, come to think of it.

Here’s the pitch:

Feminism has caused some serious changes to our culture, to our society, and to our lives. We focus on some that are affected more than others, and we give back.

Our goal is to encourage men to speak out, to be men, to not fear oppression and enjoy their freedom of speech. Unfortunately in today’s climate, being a man has become a financial liability. Say the wrong thing in the wrong place and you can find your entire life ruined. Destroyed.

Feminists have fought for equality, but now they’re out for our rights.

They’re destroying us financially. They’re trying to tear apart our families.

We’re saying that enough is enough. No longer should men fear masculinity. No longer should speaking up risk a man his job, career, or family.

It’s time to rise up against the tyranny. It’s time to tell men it’s ok to speak up. We’re here for you. This is the Feminist Victims Fund.

Did I mention that you can donate using BITCOIN? In case you were worried that this thing wasn’t Reddity enough.

As Buzzfeed notes, one of the “board members” of the new fund is pickup guru and predatory douchebag misogynist Roosh V. On his blog yesterday, Roosh happily celebrated the harassment and vilification of Adria Richards in a post with the lovely title “American Feminist Adria Richards Gets Gang Raped By The Internet.”

Speaking of rape, Roosh is also the author of a booklet titled Bang Iceland, in which he admits that, well, he’s kind of a rapist himself. Buzzfeed quotes this rather revealing passage from the book, in which Roosh recalls a “date” he had in Iceland:

While walking to my place, I realized how drunk she was. In America, having sex with her would have been rape, since she legally couldn’t give her consent. It didn’t help matters that I was relatively sober, but I can’t say I cared or even hesitated. I won’t rationalize my actions, but having sex is what I do.

What a humanitarian.

That… pretty much sums up everyone’s reaction to NWOslave. Sometimes he wrote some genuinely if unintentionally funny stuff, and some of the offensive stuff he wrote was too off-the-wall to be genuinely offensive (see: women cry on street corners and men give them money and this is why feminism is bad) but yeah, a significant portion was nasty.

He buggered off after Obama was reelected. Don’t know where he is, but if I’m correct I hope he brought a warm coat. ๐Ÿ˜›

Oh NWO. We should make a little shrine in your honor. In the kitchen garbage.

Also, shameless plug! I’m doing a writeathon on the subject of the Other! Give me prompts so I can write you shiny things! (And possibly earn a little money? *shiny eyes*)

RE: religion

I tend to avoid gods whenever possible. I have yet to hear of one who seems like they WOULDN’T set me on fire if I entered their domain, and why would I want to hang around a god who barely tolerates my presence?

Which is kinda a shame, because I would quite like to be a monk. There’s just that whole ‘belief in god’ thing that always seems to be a requirement…

(And no, no Buddhism for me. Anything about cleansing oneself of desire + eating disorder history = ten pounds of dynamite in a five pound jar.)

Chocolate not anti-depressant. :/ Sorry if this is all weird-soundy, I’m just kind of nitpicky about people using depression to describe things that are not depression. Unless you’ve got depression too and it really helps. I’m just strange and nitpicky, like I said.

>>>1) A truly anonymous system of transactions is inherently open to abuse

If it is possible then it will exist, and therefore whether it is open or not to abuse is sort of irrelevant, no? The only solution the state could have is the criminalization of the mere possession of the tools (or even knowledge) of anonymous transactions, and even then the law would be more or less unenforceable without committing gross civil rights violations.

When I was doing high school custodial work we had this bucket that gradually got full of literally thousands of pieces of old gum scraped off tables and chairs and then we’d take it around and show people and go “See, this is why you’re not supposed to chew gum in class.” We were always talking about making a sculpture out of it; now there’s a perfect subject.

Not really sure what you’re going for here and particularly unsure what the antecedent of “it” is, and I’m definitely not interested in getting into a discussion of the role of government, which is why I didn’t mention it originally.

But the basic principle is that, in a truly untraceable system, there’s no way to verify that what you say happened is what actually happened. If you claim that you paid a vendor and the vendor claims that zie never got paid, there’s no actual way to determine whether you’re lying and didn’t send the payment, the vendor is lying and actually did receive it, or you’re both right and the payment was lost or intercepted in some manner. If the records exist to prove what happened, then the system is no longer anonymous and untraceable.

CWS – your description of what Owly would have been up to after the election will live forever. It cracks me up every time I think of it. ๐Ÿ˜€

Marie – oh no, I didn’t have a nasty Prot upbringing! My mum’s a lapsed Catholic and my father an on-again, off-again Methodist. He was decidedly off when he flitted off when I was eight. Those school RI lessons were the only exposure I had. My thoughts on the Prot God came much later, as an adult, and had as much to do with reading about European history as anything – the French Wars of Religion and Calvinism, a creed that turns my stomach.

LBT – I find Buddhism pretty distasteful too, for various reasons. It’s the antithesis of things I value in many ways.

Whoot! on your writing challenge! Do you want pithy prompts, or would you like to pull ideas from broader sources? Which is a roundabout way of saying, if you feel like prowling my blog for an idea, you’re more than welcome to do so. ๐Ÿ™‚

Myself and a lot of my friends have either depression or mental illness with depression-like symptoms (sitting around feeling like a worthless piece of crap who doesn’t deserve to live because there isn’t any butter in the fridge, for instance) and mine wasn’t diagnosed for ages (I’m not getting any functional treatment, I’m just having pills thrown at me) and many of us (myself included) use comfort-eating as a coping strategy. It’s a joke/reference about that. And yeah, that pretty much is my contribution to the kitchen bin right now.

Given that chocolate sparks up the endorphins in the brain, it is, if not an actual anti-depressant, certainly a cheer-me-up food for those who like it.

Now if they’d make chocolate-flavoured antidepressants, there’d be even more incentive to take them if one was a) reluctant or b) forgetful*

Yes, that’s why there’s a market for reliable escrow services on sites like Silk Road. And that issue comes up with pretty much any online transaction for goods or services, as anyone who uses eBay knows.

I’m lucky with pills, it’s not like I have a battery of ’em to take (you should see all the ones Mum has, for blood thinning, cholesterol and diabetes – oy). I’ve just got my antidepressants, which are pretty mild, although I think it’s got to the point where I’ll feel the difference in mood if I miss one. Other than that it’s fish oil and vitamins, and painkillers or cold pills or Antenex-for-emergencies or anti-diarrhoea pills as required. (There’s a really good brand called GastroStop here, dunno if it’s in the States but I recommend it.)

Re “the unforgivable sin”: It’s not actually defined. Blasphemy is actually really hard to do. It’s a very specific sin, and not one that a person can commit by accident. One has to (with intent) Curse God with the Name of God; which is pretty recursive (may God damn Himself for all eternity, or some such complicated formulation).

Since that’s what blasphemy is, and The Holy Spirit is ill-defined, it’s not clear just how one commits the offense. This is in keeping with the Jewish Idea that to be apikoros (what protestant refer to as, “apostate”) requires an intimate knowledge of both Torah and Talmud; because one must, consciously reject all of both.

The inference is that one who actually knows God, is aware of His existence, and then denies Him, and abjures him, is thus damned; and by the words of their mouth and the actions of their life. It’s not a casual, “God sucks”, sort of thing; if it were then The Book of Job wouldn’t be in the Bible.

@Pecunium

I don’t know if the (orthodox christian) church has an “official” unforgivable sin, I was just sharing what the priest said.

And if it actually was that complicated, he didn’t mention any of it. His words were something along the lines of”saying there’s no god and can never be a god”. Which is why it made me do a double take.

re the “gender” of God. In Hebrew it flops about. Elohim is a feminine plural, but Hebrew doesn’t have a neuter gender, neither singular, nor plural. Modern Judaism still doesn’t deny the existence of other gods (though this may be rabbinic), which is why wine has to be kept Kosher: if it’s been dedicated to other gods it’s no longer fit for ritual purposes, and lots of religions dedicate wine to their deity.

It doesn’t matter for things like sake (which is almost always got various Shinto rites connected to the manufacture), because it’s not religiously relevant to Jews.

pecunium: That reminds me of a funny story. I was on a forum once where some Christian basically told me that I really do believe in and fear his God (I’m an atheist), but I’m just pretending that I don’t. Very annoying and presumptuous (though a great trolling techniques). I tried to prove him wrong by committing the unforgivable sin and blaspheming the Holy Spirit in the forum, the reasoning being that I wouldn’t do such a reckless thing if I had some hint of belief. But they got around that by saying that I couldn’t properly commit the sin because I didn’t fully understand what it was that I was saying. Theists: so frustrating! ๐Ÿ˜€

Fade: What do you mean when you say, “orthodox christian”? There are several churches (in the catholic family of christian religions) which are, Orthodox: Greek, Russian, Armenian, Macedonian, etc. They have paralells (as they do with Roman Catholics and the various churches in the Anglican Communion”, but there is no universal orthodoxy among them; much less among the Protestant faiths.

So I’m confused. I am assuming you are referring to a specific church (and it sounds as if it might be the theological musings of a single priest/minister).

It is the musings of a single priest. I guess I didn’t clarify that well at first.

As for the definition, it flopped around. I can’t remember whether the first one was greek or middle eastern, but the second church (and the one with the priest who said it) was a greek orthodox church.

So, took the weekend off of mocking misogyny so’s I could go to a friend’s b-day party. It was at this place that’s a flat-fee, play-all-day video arcade (machines are either set to free mode, or have a button you can press for free credits). They also have a side-room where people can play various console games–a lot of us spent time watching other people play that zombie-killer game where you get all kinds of weird outfits. Watching the dude run around in his heart-boxers killing zombies and having serious conversations with other survivors was highly amusing.
