"Mumsnet hates men"

(154 Posts)

There's a Facebook page created by some school kids called "shut Mumsnet down cos they hate kids" or some such thing, which is harmless enough.

But they've posted this advert from F4J, which is rather more sinister.

I wasn't aware that it was mandatory to hate men to be a Mumsnetter. I shall have to inform DH at once that he is to leave home and never see the DDs again. hmm

They're rather sad and scary aren't they?

I think the tactic is reserved for all the oppressed classes tbh. I think WoC experience this when talking about race issues, for example.

I think it is used on all oppressed classes, as scallops said, with the ceveat that within each oppressed class, special disdain is reserved for women who have the gall to think about themselves, when everyone knows it is their job to look after and service others.

(Or at least stand in the background and let men take the credit for having done all the work. Behind every great man.....)

On a slightly off tangent , sorry to ask , Why is f4J so bad?

I'm asking in genuine ignorance , curiosity.
