MRA Dean Esmay elevates the discourse with new #SpankAFeminist hashtag, gratuitous rape references

Dean Esmay
Dean Esmay wants you to know that you’re a cruel bitter bitchy hatemongering bigot harpy who needs to be spanked, metaphorically.

Dean Esmay, the Chief Operations Officer (whatever that is) of A Voice for Men, has scored a major public relations coup for the Men’s Rights movement with his aggressive promotion of an exciting new Twitter hashtag, #SpankAFeminist.

In what I can only assume is an attempt to convince the world that MRAs do indeed spend a good portion of their days fantasizing about doing physical harm to feminists, Esmay explains in a post on AVFM that the hashtag is necessary “because it’s finally time to put abusive liars over the knee.” 

In case you’re wondering, when he refers to “abusive liars” he means feminists and not, you know, people who think that publicly fantasizing about spanking feminists is 1) hilarious and 2) some kind of actual activism on the behalf of men.

Esmay is quick to assure his readers that he is only referring to metaphorical spankings over metaphorical knees.

As he sees it, feminists are pretty much all just begging to be spanked (metaphorically).

Why would you spank a feminist? Well in reality, we know a lot of them would complain but some might actually enjoy it. Who knows? Maybe they’re just shit-testing us all and waiting and feeling frustrated that we aren’t responding right.

Evidently, in Esmayland, when women challenge their male partners with so-called “shit tests” it’s because deep down they want to be physically assaulted.

Also, feminists are a bunch of meanies, anyway.

[A]ny time you meet a feminist, you should spank him or her until they cry. And do it every time they open their mouths to spew forth their hateful lies about standing for tolerance, inclusion, and equality, when there is no movement in the modern world that does more to fight against tolerance, inclusion, freedom, and equality than feminism. Not even real life fascists or communists can top them at this point.

Feminism is an intolerant, hateful, racist, anti-gay, misandrist, misogynist, gynocentric religion and hate movement.

Yep, that’s right: In Esmayland, feminists are actually worse than real Nazis.

So how is the spanking going so far? Here are a few of Esmay’s contributions to the hashtag. As always, he is a master of subtlety. CONTENT WARNING for terrible rape references. Also a WAIT, WHAT? WARNING for some of the nonsensiest nonsense I think I’ve ever seen.

You may have noticed that Esmay favors some rather colorful descriptions of feminists and feminism. Here are a few others he’s used in the hashtag over the last day or so.

  • Bitter bitchy harpies
  • Cruel violent abusive harpies
  • Hatemongering cultist[s]
  • Misandrist bigot[s]
  • Bigots and bullies
  • Hateful feminist bigot and bully
  • Bigot feminists

It’s weird that someone who complains so much about alleged feminist “bigotry” is fine with publishing articles written by a literal Holocaust denier.

Also, given how evil we feminists are, it seems a bit strange that Esmay tried to friend me on LinkedIn the other day.

Dean Esmay, man of many surprises.

While Esmay’s tweets seem to make up roughly half of the #SpankAFeminist hashtag, a handful of other terrible people have enlisted in Esmay’s (metaphorical) spanking crusade. Here are some of the most charming of the bunch, and when I say “charming” I mean CONTENT WARNING for gratuitous rape references, violent gifs, and Dan Perrins being Dan Perrins. (I’ve omitted the assorted porn pictures the #SpankAFeminist folks have posted.)

Another from Esmay:

It probably is safe to assume any feminist lecturing about consent is a rapist. No one else needs that much explaining #SpankAFeminist

How does this even make sense? No one assumes that someone explaining the definition of murder is a murderer. If anything the people who are trying to obscure the meaning of consent are more likely to be rapists.

I haven’t enough “wait…wuts” to “wait…wut?” this enough. I’ll check back tomorrow, maybe I’ll have some “wait…wuts” to give this Esmay character a proper “wait…wut?”

Maybe a new Twitter trend should be: #waitwut?

That… doesn’t make sense. “No one else needs that much explaining?” Is the hypothetical feminist explaining consent to themselves? Even ignoring that bit of fumbling, is a feminist likely a rapist if they do *any* explaining about consent? Is *any* explanation too much?

But yes, some people do need lots of explaining. And in the case of those people who seem to be willfully trying to misunderstand the explanation (or try to find all the tiny little corner cases where a simplified explanation doesn’t seem to hold to try to disprove it at all), they are in all probability a rapist (or are likely to become one).

@Paradoxical:

There’s a school of thought which holds that the proper term for a female dominant should be “dom” rather than “domme”, since it’s a contraction of “dominatrix.” However, your usage is certainly the popular one.

The reason I personally adhere to it is because it’s easier to tell the preferred gender of the dominant in question in text. : P

It’s not easy to infer if you’re referring to a “dominant” or a “dominatrix” if you just use the word “dom” without some other contextual clues.

And like I said, I think it stems from French.

dlouwe | June 22, 2015 at 4:28 pm
On a slightly related tangent, the most recent “Last Week Tonight” had a look at online harassment against women, which had a 10 second clip of Anita Sarkeesian, and the dudebros are maaaaaad.

Mostly what I see is “Okay, revenge porn is a problem, but WHY DO YOU HAVE SARKEESIAN AND WU IN THERE?! THEY’RE EVIL! PROFESSIONAL VICTIMS!

With a dose of “Anita’s a scam artist! Wu sent those threats to herself! Reddit proved they’re both liars!”

At least they’re admitting that Wu and Sarkeesian are victims, though they seem to have missed the bit where Oliver talked to a woman who literally said “Ignoring harassment doesn’t work”, and where Oliver followed up with “You can’t just unplug your computer and walk away and pretend it isn’t happening, because that’s impractical.”

The dom/domme thing is something that gets debated from time to time. I know a lot of female dominants who dislike domme because it was created quite recently (like within the last 10-15 years online) just to gender dominants while there is no parallel for submissives. Far from a universal opinion however and plenty of dominants embrace being called dommes. It’s also entirely fake french which is another objection some have to it.

Actually I think Esmay is correct that consent is really not that complicated. However, since all forms of sexual assault are so common, and many offenders use “confusion” as a defense, I fail to see the harm in defining consent. I also support moving from “everything short of a loud verbal no is a yes” to “everything short of an enthusiastic yes is a no” standard for sexual assault so these cowards have no shred of cover.

(Quebec anglophone with second-language French here)

Yes, doubling the consonant and adding E is a common French feminine ending, though usually used more for L and N than for M. Also, many French masculine words end a similar way, such as “homme,” which means “man,” so life is confusing 🙂

@epitome of incomprehensibility Yeah, language is weird. Basically domme was created by adding “me” to the end of “dom” to make it look like it’s feminine french but really isn’t because it isn’t actually derived from a french word.

Their ‘no really means yes’ fantasies are what always gives them away. And I love how everything they talk about has to come back to sex. It’s so damn obvious that it’s all about sex and their inability to find someone who will, or force someone to, have sex with them.

With a dose of “Anita’s a scam artist! Wu sent those threats to herself! Reddit proved they’re both liars!”

“I agree with you, but…(insert heinous comment here)” really is becoming a common thing these days.

Do these people ever get how self-contradictory their statements are? It’s like when they throw around “ethics in gaming journalism” and then complain about critics expressing opinions they dislike, to the point where they’ll talk about doing a boycott of the site it’s on. Which just proves they don’t give a shit about journalistic ethics.

At least they’re admitting that Wu and Sarkeesian are victims, though they seem to have missed the bit where Oliver talked to a woman who literally said “Ignoring harassment doesn’t work”, and where Oliver followed up with “You can’t just unplug your computer and walk away and pretend it isn’t happening, because that’s impractical.”

Oh, they’ll just come up with some convenient re-definition of “harassment” and make it out that they’re just “critiquing” – because they think words can be whatever they want them to mean whenever they want, and others must accept that. Nevermind that isn’t how language works…

OH NOES! WHY DID MEN HAVE TO EVOLVE TO NEED TO APPLY SUCH POWERFUL ARTIFICIAL SCENTS TO THEIR BODIES?

*raises hand* Ooh, me, let me try!

*ahem* Our ancestors on the savannah were in constant danger from many fierce beasts, so the menz, who were always sacrificing themselves for the good of the women, bathed in hyena dung so that the predators would think “yuck, there’s a bunch of smelly hyenas over there,” and steer clear. As the noblest and alphaest of the males smelled the ripest, the hotties in the group chose them to mate with. Then they split up with them and kept the cave (yes, there were caves on the savannah; it was the olden days–shut up) and settled down with a beta cuck.

But any claims of harassment should be ignored because “they’re just kids”, “it’s obviously just trolling”, “it’s faked!”, etc.

Goobers demand we take their claims of “fake!” seriously, but we’re not supposed to listen to women who are harassed.

It’s by no stretch of the imagination an easy task to hold myself accountable to my own past. And it now a life long task to keep myself accountable and mindful.

I see AVfM and the MRA’s as self-centered arch manipulators who wallow in their own self pity and then use that as an excuse to abuse people. If Paul Elam’s only example of an abusive childhood is being forced to take medicine and then use that as a shining example of why he’s right, then I have no time for his shallow posturing as he and his ilk’s posturing in no way matches my own. And I can categorically say that for all the nasty things I did, it was nothing like the garbage they talk of, the opposite in fact.

All I can say is that if Deano wants to spank a man who discovered feminism in all its varieties and supports it, by all means he can have a go… But I think he’ll have a miserable experience.

Well, the police said it was “not a threat” after Anita canceled the talk, so this person (aptly named “Hello Murrica”) claimed that it was a “false flag” and thus, Anita had to have been lying.

Though, I brought up that the threat was null after the talk was canceled, and politely informed them that their second amendment rights end when they use their gun to threaten to kill people. I don’t care if Utah’s an “open carry” state. If someone gets threatened with being shot, there should be a way to prevent that beyond “Well, we can’t do anything about a gun if they have a permit”. Lives should be more important than guns. Period. Dot. The End.

I remember a former friend of mine making the same exact claim. The funny part is that the moment I asked as to where he heard it, he acted aggrieved by the question and tried to avoid further discussion by saying he’s not into arguing online…which is why he decided to argue with me online. I take it as meaning he saw that on reddit and didn’t want to admit such.

If he didn’t want to reveal his “sources”, chances are they weren’t very credible in the first place, and he knew it.

Right, ’cause YouTube commentators are such an eloquent and reasonable bunch who never say anything horrendous or make a conversation devolve into an incomprehensible yelling match…

Which was the point I made. There was just so much swill that it was more prudent to just shut the whole thing off. The initial comment that kicked off my conversation with him was him asking me “How does turning off the comment section target harassers?”

Which I replied it wasn’t the point to “target” harassers, but rather to just stem the tide of bullshit swill being hurled her way.

I went on to compare it to Nintendo’s Swapnote app on the 3DS, which was for sending photos, drawings, and hand-written notes back and forth to friends. Nintendo clipped the fuck out of it a while back because people were sending each other nude photos and bullying each other and apparently a child predator was using it to get to kids, and made it so you could only send notes to people you ran into via Spotpass.

Does it suck that the entire system was pretty much shut down for me because I don’t live close to my friends? Yeah. Do I agree with Nintendo’s decision to clip Swapnote to protect the younger kids who might be using the app? Absolutely. There are other ways I can message my friends. It’s not like Nintendo’s cutting me off from them completely.

Same thing with Anita. I keep having to say that just because Anita’s comment section is closed off on YouTube, it doesn’t mean you’re barred from speaking about her videos at all. I suggested that if they have a problem with her videos, that they go make a rebuttal video of their own, or they start a forum thread or make a post elsewhere about it. Start a damn discussion. It doesn’t have to be right on her video.

And if they want to bring up something with Anita directly, she still has Twitter and tumblr pages they can message.

I fail to see how this is an argument. “Anita doesn’t want discussion!” No, she doesn’t want to deal with one of the shittiest comment section communities on the internet, even as admitted by the comment section community themselves.

And then they ignored everything I said and went on about how “It’s so odd that she’d shut down her comments section. If what she says is true, why is she not letting us talk about it?!”

Thanks for listening, dude, seriously. [/sarcasm]

Seriously, the site would be improved ten-fold if they didn’t have comment sections at all.

It’s like that on my 3DS app. No comments. You just scroll down and see more videos you can watch. It’s rather nice. (But the videos look like shit, so there’s the catch.)

Prominent feminist writer Clementine Ford was suspended from Facebook over abusive PMs. She didn’t SEND them though – they came from a bunch of jerks after she posted a partially nude pic of herself in response to victim blaming comments by an Australian morning TV show. Clem posted screenshots of the messages with sender names clearly visible. Apparently this was worse than the messages themselves.

So hey, remember when AVFM flipped its collective shit because Facebook pulled its finger out of its arse and told the world it was going to start following its own rules, then sniffed said finger and forgot was TAKEN OVER BY FEMINISTS FOREVER?

Noadi, on BDSM terminology:

@epitome of incomprehensibility Yeah, language is weird. Basically domme was created by adding “me” to the end of “dom” to make it look like it’s feminine french but really isn’t because it isn’t actually derived from a french word.

Looks like a case where people had the gender-neutral term dom/dominant and then decided they wanted gendered terminology, so they kept the neutral term for masculine and made a half-assed derivation for the feminine. Because male is the cultural default, especially in BDSM domming 🙂

There’s no male BDSM equivalent for “domina” (Latin for mistress, masculine form would be “dominus”).

There’s no male equivalent for “dominatrix” (apparently Fake Latin, masculine form would be “dominator”).

And finally, there’s no male equivalent for “domme”.
