My what the fuck of the day, found while searchinf for feminist children's books.

Raising Boys Feminist Will Hate

Not sure what the author has intended by this I thought it was a joke at first as surely feminist only hate men that abuse and denigrate women... but no the author seems to be for real.

This is the guy behind a site called clashdaily.com

If you go to it a registration site comes up which offers you the chance to win a Walther PPK.380 pistol.

Says it all...

I have to words for that (above).

Another (more mundane) WTAF... was in B and M's today and they were blaring out "99 problems but a bitch ain't one.." . I approached the manager and said I didn't really appreciate them playing that, esp as I often bring my daughter in. She laughed nervously and was a bit apologetic but didn't really see why it was a problem hmm

Just found one here on our own dear Mumsnet. Jaw is on the floor on many levels.

Just struck me today, was pottering around cooking dinner listening to current affairs programme on radio. In the order I heard them, there were these three stories- coverage of the Oireachtas debates on legislation for abortion here in Ireland, next the whole Jimmy Saville thing, and while talking to the same UK correspondent, incidences of gender selection abortions among some Asian populations in the UK.
And it struck me, does nobody really see the links here? The common theme underlying this and many other current news that could've popped up.what's stopping people see all thisz? My wtf moment of the day

nice Annie, check out this gem I spotted yesterday. This was from a thread about whether Sara Milli can is funny or not confused

SM makes me cringe. She's not funny and looks way older than her age.

this was absolutely out of the blue as well,her looks weren't being discussed at all...and rightly so

PiccadillyCervix Fri 11-Jan-13 23:52:50

because people don't like feminism sal,still can't totally figure out why though...

GunsAndRoses Wed 16-Jan-13 00:52:23

Oh fucking hell, I cannot tell you how much I deteste Sarah Millican. I despise her with a passion. Am I going to get flamed? Sorry , but was reading this thread and her name cropped up, I just cannot stand the woman.

TheDarkestNight Wed 16-Jan-13 00:58:21

Is that to do with feminism, GunsAndRoses? I'm genuinely interested if it is... if not, it seems rather off-topic, although of course you're welcome to an opinion.

"SM makes me cringe. She's not funny and *looks way older than her age.*"

Thinking SM is shit is not the problem, thinking looks way older than her age. judging a female comedian for her looks is shit.

Simpkins Wed 16-Jan-13 11:26:21

My appraisal this morning. Same statement included in the "Career Aspirations" commentary box as the last three years. "Whilst Simpkins has expressed an interest in progressing to the next level, she appreciates that her current part time hours prevent this."

I work for a large multinational organisation that "prides" itself on being family friendly and has recently launched a Diversity and Inclusion campaign to ensure that all minority groups are well represented in the workplace. We had a team meeting yesterday in which a number of those present (er, surprisingly, men) met the news of this campaign with an open discussion of how these so-called minorities were merely pigeon holing themselves and really, if they would only just shut up and stop bleating on about being different all the time then it would be much better for them.

2013? Hmm.

Nice Simpkins

Have you tried to complaining to your HR about it?

Someone sent me this...

http://www.returnofkings.com/2099/the-9-ugliest-american-feminists

This guy is the absolute definition of a misogynist. I read about four other posts, before I had to stop, he made me feel sick.

Then I discovered he writes 'Bang' guides, which are travel guides aimed at men, "teaching" them how to get women in that country to sleep with them.

I'm going to cry in the corner for a bit.

Excuse me...

Lovely moment on Today (radio 4) tis morning; a report on the Davos economic summit, men in suits etc, the reporter then had a brief chat with Charlize Theron who is representing an AIDS in Africa charity (not a particularily fashionable cause these days) - she spoke in an informed fahion and knew her stuff. The reporter signed off with "so there we have it; a little Hollywood glamour amidst the men in suits at Davos!" Hang on, wasn't she talking about AIDS? Oh well, let's all just imagine her tits instead...

feministefatale Wed 23-Jan-13 14:16:57

That's a hideous blog freedom and I know it doesn't help to say it and they shouldn't be judged on their looks either way because it is nothing to with what they are doing...but weren't they all, actually nice looking? And a couple really traditionally pretty?

That's the best he could do? Are all the "non ugly" feminists just too super hot grin

feministefatale Wed 23-Jan-13 14:17:59

"so there we have it; a little Hollywood glamour amidst the men in suits at Davos!"

Nothing more glamorous than watching poor people die of AIDS hmm

StinkyWicket Wed 23-Jan-13 14:31:17

I am horrified at that link Freedom. I lurk on the Feminists board but find it actually makes me depressed reading about this and even thinking about it. Makes me think I should have been 'drowned at birth' hmm as I almost certainly don't fit the ideal, what with being a bit porky and 30 years old.

I dispair for the human race sometimes.

FreedomOfTheTess Wed 23-Jan-13 15:01:33

Today's blog post is a peach too...

Welcome to post-gender happytopia

The whole tone of this Return of Kings website is, it's meant to be a haven for "masculine men" to out, those men who want a return to the days where men were men, and women were women.

Here's the actual 'about' blurb from the site...

^Return Of Kings is a blog for heterosexual, masculine men. It’s meant for a small but vocal collection of men in America today who believe men should be masculine and women should be feminine.

RoK aims to usher the return of the masculine man in a world where masculinity is being increasingly punished and shamed in favor of creating an androgynous and politically-correct society that allows women to assert superiority and control over men. Sadly, yesterday’s masculinity is today’s misogyny. The site intends to be a safe corner of the web for those men who don’t agree with the direction that Western culture is headed.^

So I think this means that, because my DH isn't a misogynist and doesn't exhibit "typical" heterosexual male behaviours, he's not a real man. I'll tell him that later. wink

Although largely insulting to women, this Return of Kings site is also insulting to men who don't act like cavemen!

So, I bet the Pratt who wrote the 9 feminist link isn't either young or good looking.
It's stupid childish shite why on earth bother re-posting it.

FreedomOfTheTess Wed 23-Jan-13 15:10:10

I posted it, to refer people the ENTIRE BLOG, which is a load of misogynist clap trap.

This post is the tip of the iceberg.

Wish I hadn't bothered now.

feministefatale Wed 23-Jan-13 15:29:35

startail the point of the thread was just to post random shit you have heard or seen, that's all freedom did.

I hardly think the guy is going to get a load of followers on the back of it from FWR section

Startail Thu 24-Jan-13 00:30:16

Yes rereading the thread title, I agree that link qualifies as random annoying sexist twatery.
