Kevin Federline-andry: The most pressing men's human rights issue of our age?

Presented, without comment — ok, besides this comment, and the comment in the title of the post — is this headline from the Men’s Rights subreddit:

Kevin Federline received $13 million from his divorce with Brittany Spears. Would he have gotten more if genders swapped?

Thanks once again to AgainstMensRights for finding this one.

Also, it’s BRITNEY. Not Brittany. Britney. One T, followed by NEY. B-R-I-T-N-E-Y. It’s not hard to remember.

Alimony is slavery!

MRA’s: desperately searching for examples of Misandry since 1955.

also, either this comment is quite old, or the person posting it is unaware that the whole Kevin- Britney thing was seven years ago.

MRAs really love to play the “If the genders were swapped, THIS would have happened” game. (For example, “Now if the gender reverse was published in huffpo by a feminist writer…”)

like, totally am I right!

They’re whining that he got a measly thirteen million? I should be so oppressed!

I think I was playing video games when I heard the news. to be fair that’s a safe bet for most of that period of time.

I wouldn’t even have known who this person was, or remembered that Britney Spears had been married and divorced, though unlike dopey in the OP I can at least spell her name.

@ Kittehserf pffft. what will thirteen million buy you these days?

But if he`d been a gurr-el, he`d have gotten a million-bazillion dollars rather than that measley 13 million. MISANDRY!! MRA to the rescue! (Too bad it took them seven years to notice…)

@ David Futrelle so in their hypothetical world for example, queen Henrietta the eighth would have divorced and/or beheaded fifteen or so of her husbands, spermjacking and cockteasing each one along the way?

does that sound about right for something they might come up with?

If he’d been a feeeeemale, he would have gotten sole custody of their kids PLUS a couple of the neighbor’s kids.

Incorrect spelling of people’s names can be dumbassery, or it can be a passive-aggressive way of disrespecting them (see: Fox News continually referring to the “Democrat Party”). Hard to tell with MRAs.

Also, K-Fed only got $1 million, not $13 million, and he and Britney had a prenup. So this complaint only has merit on Planet Asstowel.

No! No! Don’t let them see the trilby!

@feintone, well, it’d by lots and lots of yarn and needles and …

I wouldn’t turn down even the million he really did get. Though I’d pass on the child custody, unless the children were cats. 😛

As long as he got custody of the trilby in the divorce.

man, some the articles lately have given me some real early 200’s nostalgia for some reason. need to fish out my old Linkin park CD’S and play some shenmue!

Kittehserf now I just want to donate a million pounds worth of balls of yarn to the cats at my local animal rescue center (where my family got our cat). then watch them all play with it.

Wait, I thought Kevin had to pay Britney money forever and live on ramen and peanut butter because misandry?

kittehserf

feintone, what a lovely idea! 😀

Of course the best yarn for kitties to play with is the one you’re trying to knit. Just as the best rug is the thing you’re knitting, which looks ever so much better with a few threads pulled here and there, and furs woven in (yes I’m looking at you, Fribbie).

He’d have to get his mom to kill him so his life insurance could feed his children because he couldn’t get a job because divorced men buhhhhhh.

He’d have to get his mom to kill him so his life insurance could feed his children because he couldn’t get a job because divorced men buhhhhhh.

Wouldn’t be that much of a stretch – he probably already had to get his mom to watch the kid, because having to watch your own kids is MISANDRY.

I just read through some of the comments on the post on Reddit. One guy made the not-so-unreasonable suggestion that rather than freak out that he didn’t get more money we should care more that perhaps no one should get absurd amounts of money for divorce. Well.. that suggestion didn’t go over too well, apparently he just didn’t understand the issue.

“Your focus is off, that’s all. We see it a lot on this board — folks who don’t understand that the only issue is the double standard, not whether a thing is right or wrong”

Because we don’t care about actually fixing the issues, duh!

Is Taylor snarking, or being serious? It’s so hard to tell…

Also, BEHOLD! The second Manboobz cyborg critter, a clown loach in Argenti’s honor!

Other things that are totally JUST LIKE SLAVERY, guys:

I read Taylor’s comment as snarking at MRAs.

Borg clown loach, d’awwww!

I think Taylor’s probably snarking (but Taylor you might want to clarify!), and BORG CLOWN LOACH IS ADORABLE.

I have a cute cat sleeping right next to me, and she’s not helping with the nose at all. Why doesn’t SHE have Laser Eye Beams?

CassandraSays

She does, she’s just too lazy to use them.

cloudiah

She just started rubbing her nose with her paw. I think she’s making fun of me.

kittehserf

Lazy AND mocking you.

Sounds about right.

Sorry, I couldn’t resist. And also I want Chris Crocker to have more than the five seconds of fame the internet seems to have allotted him.

My cat comes and curls up next to me and acts sweet when I’m sick. Is she actually a dog?

Obviously if the genders were swapped, Keven would have gotten ALL DA MONEYS and custody of ALL DA CHILDREN, and Britney would be left living on dust bunnies 4EVAS!!!1!
