Pledge Drive: Begging Cat Gif Edition!

Please, kind human can you spare a ha'penny?
Please, kind human, can you spare a ha’penny?

Welcome to the Somewhat Belated Second Quarter Man Boobz Pledge Drive 2014: Begging Cat Gif Edition!

To repeat my simple pitch from my previous pledge drives: If you enjoy this blog, and can afford it, please click on the “donate” button below and send a few bucks my way. Or, if you’d prefer, a lot of bucks. You don’t need a PayPal account to donate; you can use a credit card, and there are other options as well. If you’re outside the US, PayPal should be able to handle your weird foreign money.

Oh, and the PayPal page will say you’re donating to Man Boobz; don’t panic! That’s just the old name of the blog.

Your donations, big and small, are all greatly appreciated; they keep this blog going, quite literally. My cats thank you too, as they also get a cut, mostly in the form of cat food.

Big thanks to everyone who donated during the last pledge drive. (If I didn’t get back to you personally, I apologize; I know I missed some of you.) Thanks as well to those who’ve donated since the last pledge drive, and to those especially generous souls who donate on a regular basis.

And if for whatever reason you can’t donate, that’s fine. I understand being broke.

I always use these pledge drives as an excuse to brag about page views, and I’m not going to stop: We Hunted the Mammoth has now received more than 15 million page views since its inception as Man Boobz on Blogger in 2010. And you all have posted more than 400,000 comments. Which is kind of staggering, really.

To all the MRAs out there who think I write all the comments here, really? THERE ARE 400,000 OF THEM. Lots of them talking about stuff I don’t even know about! Because the commenters here rock!

I get paid friday. I’ll throw 10 bucks your way. Please use it on something that makes you happy. Even if it’s cat litter.

I feel like I’ve asked this question before at a previous pledge drive, but can I donate if I’m donating another currency. Little old me sat in England has only pounds sterling.

@historophilia, I know I’ve paid US$ to furriners using PayPal, and as I recall it converts it for you.

That cat GIF is adorable. I’ll donate on payday too (Friday). And when I do, no need to send a personal thank you — thank YOU for writing this blog, and all those 400,000 comments, including this one.

MRA here. If you would all be so kind as to sign the white house petition declaring us a terrorist group, we would appreciate it a great deal. Thanks!

Hey, I think I’ve said this before, but I found this blog at a really important time for me. When I was just becoming aware of feminism and realizing that a lot of things I knew were completely wrong.

Right about the time Anders Breivik killed all those kids.

It was the in-depth digging into his ideology here that really showed me the violence at the root of… well, of most of what I believed in.

This site, along with a few others, showed me that the things I took as gospel truth were dangerous, racist, sexist, and that I needed to rethink my whole life.

The brand of fundamentalist thinking that I was mired in (see the last quote from Lundy Bancroft in this post) was full of MRA talking points.

Anyhow, I’ll drop a few dollars in when I get my paycheck this week. It seems like the least I can do.

I can finally afford to donate, yay!

IKR? I think it might be some kind of reverse psychology, where they assume (probably correctly) that we’ll do the opposite of what MRAs want, and they don’t want us to sign the petition.

I wouldn’t have signed it anyway, since it’s too broad to be effective IMO, but I look forward to them wanking about it.

re: the petition. Since I’m in an extremely pessimistic sort of mood, my guess would be they created the petition also so they could get names/info on feminists.

Paladin: No, I mean no, I mean NO. And didn’t you post this mendacious crap on another thread, too?

That cat is just so adorable. ^_^ I’ll see if I have 5 or 10 dollars to spare.

Thank you for creating and maintaining such a great site, David. And, thank you to all the commenters who help make it a wonderful place. ^_^

Hey…longtime lurker and active AMRista here: I really love what you’re doing, Dave. And while debit card issues prevent me from donate, I’d just like to send my support to you and all the awesome people here. <3

After an unconscionably long off-and-on lurking career, the pledge drive finally intersected with a payday. Contribution sent.
