Let’s see: Trump is launching trade wars with our allies while effusively praising a murderous dictator for signing a meaningless document; immigrant children are being forcibly separated from their parents and kept in literal cages; Trump let thousands die in Puerto Rico because they’re brown people who can’t vote in presidential elections; and, oh, I could go on forever. Every day under Trump is a horror and an embarrassment.
So for today’s Mammoth Classic I thought I’d present you with a post I did in August 2016 in which I looked at Men’s Rights Activists who were predicting we would slide into a gynocractic dystopia if Hillary were elected — bringing about such horrors as war with Russia, the destruction of working-class men, “suppression and demonization of males,” and perhaps worst of all, the possible appointment of Michael Kimmel, a feminist academic who writes regularly on masculinity, to head a White House Council on Men and Boys.
Instead of their imaginary dystopia under Clinton, we got the real thing under Trump.
I present to you “Men’s Rights Redditors predict a dystopian gynocracy under President Hillary Clinton.” Enjoy.
