curryeater - you might want to post that link over on the politics thread "justice for men and boys". A couple of men on there who just don't get it.

A truly excellent blog post. She says it perfectly.

Shallishanti Wed 10-Apr-13 21:36:16

gosh- that needs saying? when did this misandry thing crop up?
a good post though, but I'm guessing won't go down well with its intended audience

That's a really great blog post

I'll be liberally linking to it next time the MRA's come a-visiting

SatsukiKusukabe Wed 10-Apr-13 22:13:21

great article. I still haven't figured out what MRAs actually want us to do. They admit they have all the money and power, but the system us still against them. You are the fucking system talk to other men if you want things to be different. But please just say what it is you are actually after

I expect most MHRA's have already read it, going by this direct response to the article you have linked to:

They want us to suck their cocks for eight hours and then make them a sandwich.

No really, that is what they want.

It's almost as simple as that.

They are really fucking pissed off that just sometimes, women don't focus all their attention on men. Just sometimes, we get to live for ourselves. They see women having their own lives, independent of men, as a massive attack on men.

And they're right actually. It's massively scary for inadequate men to understand that one day, a world might exist where women don't need them to function in society.

When that happens, only nice men are ever going to have access to relationships with women.

That means that either they will have to be nice, or they will remain single.

They feel entitled to access to women's domestic and sexual services, so the idea that they should stay single, is perceived to be an attack on their human rights to possess a woman who is focussed on their needs and wants, not her own. And the alternative, of being nice... well, that's not really open to these pricks.

Wow, that's one naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrow lens you have on there.

SatsukiKusukabe Wed 10-Apr-13 23:12:12

that sounds a bit right basil, I cant imagine what it must be like to be with one if them.

NiceTabard Wed 10-Apr-13 23:42:16

That voice link is really weird. It says that women keep getting more rights (?) but will not free men from their "obligations" but then does not in any way explain what these obligations are.

Is it to do with holding doors open (again)?

Baffling article.
The article in the OP was emjoyable though smile

YouMakeMeWannaLaLa Wed 10-Apr-13 23:47:37

Yeah, holding doors and paying for dinner I reckon.

YouMakeMeWannaLaLa Wed 10-Apr-13 23:50:18

I can't see that second link because of a ContentLock on my computer.

Either my computer's a feminist or it fears for my blood pressure grin

AnyFucker Wed 10-Apr-13 23:51:09

By "obligations" I think they mean contributing to supporting the children they father.

SatsukiKusukabe Wed 10-Apr-13 23:51:47

they are bleating on in the politics section about feminism not taking on MRAs causes confused why would we? it's feminism.. MRAs aren't fighting the way women are seen by the media? do you think it's a joke thing or a derailing tactic or do they really see themselves as second class citizens....

AnyFucker Wed 10-Apr-13 23:53:04

LaLa, your pc has a well-honed twat radar smile

BasilBabyEater Thu 11-Apr-13 00:14:18

Satsuki, they seriously believe that women's job is to service them.

That includes doing their political lobbying for them, against our own interests.

They really do see it as an attack on them if we don't service them.

Wankers.

HullMum Thu 11-Apr-13 01:05:17

it hurts my head basil.

NiceTabard Thu 11-Apr-13 01:32:53

Ah don't hurt your pretty little head!

That would be so wrong. Probably your head hurts as you are going against your intrinsic nature. Please do start knitting and darning and doing lots of ironing as soon as you can. maybe bake a little and enjoy feeling awed when there are blokes around who are talking. This should make you feel better smile

HullMum Thu 11-Apr-13 02:47:51

actually do more than my fair share of baking and knitting.... but will get on the ironing straight away! will have to find it first

YonirockandrollbutIlikeit Thu 11-Apr-13 15:36:12

I wish MRA's would campaign for what they want, rather than campaigning against feminists.

YoniTime Thu 11-Apr-13 16:41:43

Well my impression of what MRA's want is no feminism, so they are campaigning for what they want.

SplitHeadGirl Thu 11-Apr-13 19:42:49

Basil I really liked your explanation there. I never quite got what it was these strange men were looking for. That makes a lot of sense. I suppose you would have to be quite a controlling person to be a MRA and slabber on about misandry - controlling towards women anyway.

StickEmUpPunk Thu 11-Apr-13 19:59:08

It's fucking stupid mras think feminism is an attack on men. Is not fucking about you like everything else on the planet.

That an open letter to feminists made me mad.

YoniTime Thu 11-Apr-13 20:26:38

The thing is, feminism IS an attack on men's rights...that is, if you think men's rights are to lord it of women and children.
