typhonblue, a senior editor at that Southern Poverty Law Center recognized hate site A Voice For Men, has, uh, some thoughts about friendzoning, abortion, and why all rape cases should automatically be nullified by the jury.
Although it’s his thinky manthoughts about abortion that really take the hatecake:
Criminalizing “friendzoning” sounds exactly like breech of promise laws that governments used to have to prevent men from leading women on.
Aside from the minor(and they are minor, far less than getting a tooth extracted) physical effects of abortion surgery, how is forced abortion different for men or women? Men already undergo forced abortion and considering that men’s bodies also hormonally prime them for fatherhood… equating forcing abortion on men and women is not far-fetched.
And lets not forget to mention Paul Elam’s call for the Jury Nullification of rape cases.
If due process was being eroded for any other crime, you wouldn’t even be arguing against his stance.
Why is rape different?
This was in response to someone arguing that hey, yeah, there are some radical MRA’s:
There are no radical MRAs
I dunno, there are some pretty radical stances. What about the folks who were advocating for the government to force women to get abortions, or that guy who wanted to criminalize le friendzoning?
I’m also pretty sure I’ve seen a couple people lauding that guy who was in the news a couple days ago for sneaking his pregnant girlfriend abortion pills as an activist.
And lets not forget to mention Paul Elam’s call for the Jury Nullification of rape cases.
Noble men’s rights activist Sarstan bravely speaks up against his fellow brothers about how awesome it would be a woman:
I’d love to be a woman, all in all. You get a lot of really nice perks. You can wear any clothing you want (the idea of cross dressing for women doesn’t even exist anymore since all the clothing men wear can be relabeled as women’s and size changed and it’s now okay to be worn. The only time you get into cross dressing for women is baggy clothing). You can EXPECT others, especially men, to help you with just about anything you need, ranging from opening doors, to taking you out to eat, to providing all lodging and other needs/wants. From there you don’t even have to return anything, such as sex. Because you don’t owe anyone when they give you stuff and protect your livelihood.
You get to behave in largely any manner. As a woman I could just say fuck it to the world, get wasted every night (again, have men at a bar buy me drinks), and beat around other people and damage property without honestly expecting to be seriously punished. Especially if I’m drunk and can’t be held accountable for my actions! If at any point I really am bothered about something, I can whine about it and have a huge support network.
Now I admit, I’d have to look good. But shit, who doesn’t want to look good? I’d have my hair and makeup done up all the time, wearing sexy/cute outfits all the time. It’d be how I get men interested in men (and perhaps women?) who would pay for everything else I would need, whether I considered it a relationship or not.
And if things go bad? Well, I can work. And if I can’t find a job, there’s always porn for really quick cash or a strip club for not quite as quick cash, but still won’t be fucked or touched, not that as a woman that would be bad. It wouldn’t even have to come to that since I could be a waitress if I wanted to play it straight. There’s often a job for that and if you’re attractive, you’re very likely to get hired. Even better is the tips will be much larger because of that too, and you know I’d play up my feminine, girly side for those tips.
Why would you not want to wake up as a woman? The only things I see bad are a period (like that’s going to be so bad).
Emphasis mine, galactic ignorance of women’s lives his.
Oh my god. We’ve hit peak Men’s Rights Activism:
I think these women’s contempt towards good men, and implicitly their manipulation of men’s volitions, is one of the few things I would genuinely call misandry.
I also call it suitor abuse, in that such a woman tends to manipulate men for fun and profit by encouraging them to pursue her, then pretend she hadn’t a clue they were interested in her and shoo them away. It’s setting people up for failure, creating strong motivations and dismantling them for a perverse sense of power. Women who do this are monsters, plain and simple, and deserve to be treated accordingly. They know very well what they’re doing, and only shout the “you’re only nice to get sex” tirades to create a smokescreen while inflicting further abuse. What they don’t count on is that the men’s movement will eventually be able to, and indeed must eventually, ensure that either laws or community standards (or both) are enforced against them.
This truly is the civil rights movement of our time.
The Straight White Cis Men’s Rights Movement is a very tolerant and diverse civil rights moveme-
men who reject everything about masculinity. Men who reject it so much that they chop off their genitalia and take female hormones in order to eradicate everything male about them.
This shirt is inspired by this video about misogyny and anti-woman hysterics. It is also inspired by the alarming number of you who marched to my door and demanded it. You were loud. You woke the neighbors.
We’ll be donating 25% of the profits to Planned Parenthood, who were there when my wife and I needed them. They were wonderful and it sucked to have to walk past security checkpoints that have to be there because of domestic terrorism that we don’t call terrorism. And Planned Parenthood is always having their funding threatened or fucked with, so it seemed a good place to funnel some money.
These shirts are screenprinted by my long-time friends at Commonwealth Press in the south side of Pittsburgh. Just the best people. Printed on Tultex shirts because fuck American Apparel for real. And of COURSE there is international shipping.
We’ll be doing preorders for a couple of weeks and then your shirt will be dispatched with a high-five and a hug.
this rape culture warren farrell meme ended up working out way better than expected
In a post having nothing to do with rape or rape culture, Paul Elam talked about “dumbing things down so that even a rapetard could understand.” In the comments to that post, AVFM contributor Dan Perrins joked about “rapetarded quote mining expedition[s].” And in a post yesterday, AVFM’s “Andy Bob” attacked Australian comedian Catherine Deveny for an assortment of alleged offenses against decency — including using the term “retard” – in a post that referred to her as a “rapetard” four times, including once in the title.

Holy shit, some of these quotes from one of the founders of the straight white men’s rights movement are just astounding:
Sexually, of course, the sexes aren’t equal. It is exactly a woman’s greater sexual power that often makes a man so fearful of being rejected by her that he buys himself drinks to reduce his fear. In essence, her sexual power often leads to him drinking; his sexual power rarely leads to her drinking. If anything is evidence of her power over him, it is his being expected to spend his money to buy her drinks without her reciprocating. …
It is men – far more than women – whose mental capacities are diminished when they are “under the influence” of a beautiful woman. (p. 320)
Why do MRA’s have such low opinions of other men?
Phew! It’s so great to see such brave and noble men’s rights activists taking on important civil rights issues as these. Just for that, they can definitely be forgiven for lazily co-opting the language and work of other movements!
“Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on Brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights? No I’m not going 10,000 miles from home to help murder and burn another poor nation simply to continue the domination of white slave masters over darker people in the world. This is the day when such evils must come to an end. I have been warned that to take such a stand would cost me millions of dollars. But I have said it once and I will say it again. The real enemy of my people is here. I will not disgrace my religion, my people or myself by becoming a tool to enslave those who are fighting for their own justice, freedom and equality. If I thought the war was going to bring freedom and equality to 22 million of my people they wouldn’t have to draft me, I’d join tomorrow. I have nothing to lose by standing up for my beliefs. So I’ll go to jail, so what? We’ve been in jail for 400 years.” - 1967
SORRY TO REBLOG STRAIGHT AWAY BUT GUYS???
SARUMAN READ OUT THIS MESSAGE AND ITS THE FUNNIEST THING HOLY SHIT?!?
this was a good end to my night
i’m going to cry
Men’s Rights Activists are rage-filled misogynists who claim feminists intentionally “cover up” issues like male rape and workplace injury rates so women can achieve global domination. Har. Those pesky feminazis, however, keep getting in the way, so it’s up to the MRAs to win the world over. And how do they do this? By threatening to “gag, rape and gut” bitches who dare to question their flimsy politics.
