Remember this shirt, and how I promised to make Jess rue the day she paraded around like the stupid, fat, heartless bitch that she is? The day has come. Poor Jess had to activate both her brain cells to explain how wearing a hateful shirt doesn’t mean she hates men, and she does that by …. wait for it ….. explaining why it’s okay that she hates men.

 

Yep, she went full retard.

Let’s take a look.

One of the most common derisive taunts thrown at feminists – and one of the oldest – is “manhater”.

Gee, I wonder why?

It’s been around since the days of suffrage, and still gets used today, though its a pretty anodyne insult.

anodyne

 

Hating men is so lulzy. It’s no big deal. Like saying you hate cockroaches. Who doesn’t amirite? Nothing to cause offense. It’s just hate, lololol.

Also, *it’s

Most feminists, like me, shun the label and work to convince people that despite the stereotypes feminists absolutely, without a doubt, do not hate men.

Oh, like this, for example? Is this how you show you don’t hate men?

But so what if we did?

Engage the retard drive.

It’s not that I recommend hating men or think it a particularly wise use of one’s time, but to each her own.

Cool. I suppose you’re good with people hating Blacks, gays, Jews, poor people, illegal immigrants and Muslims, too, because to each her own, amrite?

Straight white men still hold the majority of political, economic and social power in the world, and everyone else struggles to make their lives work with less.

A small number of men (relative to the population) are elected by a group of mostly women voters. Sounds like patriarchy to me! And is everyone struggling Jess? Really? Seems to me your last big issue was wrapping the “goddamn clusterfuck” Christmas presents.

So if the worst thing that happens to a man is that a woman doesn’t like him …well, he has it pretty damn good. It’s not as if we’re living in some sort of Wicker Man-inspired dystopia, after all.

Yeah! Especially all those homeless men! And the ones with prostate cancer! And the ones working life-threatening jobs! And the ones in jail, facing longer, harsher punishment for no reason other than the fact that they are men! And the ones denied custody of their children! And the ones getting the crap beat out of them by women! And the rape victims! And the ones struggling in classrooms that punish them for being male! All those guys can shut the hell up because y’all have it pretty good and Jess does not hate men, do you understand?

Besides, when women hate men, we hurt their feelings.

Jody Arias would like a word.

So would the senior editorial staff at Jezebel, 40% of whom admit to physically attacking and hurting their male partners. So would the five million men who were victims of domestic violence in 2011. Seems like women are more than capable of hurting more than feelings, or do you not think women are human, Jess? Are we not capable of the full range of human responses, emotions and reactions?

When men hate women, they kill us: mass shootings have been attributed to misogyny, and sexual and domestic violence against women is often fuelled by a hatred for women.

Attributed by whom? By feminists? Gee, they have no vested interest in portraying men as monsters who kill women, all the while ignoring men who are victims of female violence.

What was that about not hating men again?

That’s why it’s so hard to take seriously any claims that “misandry” is a tremendous problem – they’re based on the idea that merely insulting men is similar to the life-threatening misogyny women face worldwide.

Boys failing en masse at schools that punish them for being boys, massive incarceration of poor men and men of color, an incredulous suicide rate, underfunded health care worldwide, used as cannon fodder in wars – yeah, misandry doesn’t hurt men at all. The boys murdered by Boko Harem would talk to you about that, except they all had their throats slit, while their sisters were allowed to live.

(Most recently, Newsday writer Cathy Young argued that men being called “mansplainers” or rape apologists is akin to the rape and death threats that women get online.)

What she actually said was “a Pew Research Center study last year found that online threats of physical violence are more often directed at men, and both sexes are equally likely to report experiencing “sustained harassment” on the Internet.”

Nice try, though.

But a younger generation of feminists has embraced what Slate writer Amanda Hess calls “ironic misandry”. Hess wrote last year that the rise in popularity of “male tears” mugs and man-hating inspired shirts and crafts serves as a sort of fuck-you to the constant barrage of harassment that feminists often face: “On its most basic level, ironic misandry functions like a stuck-out tongue pointed at a playground bully.”

Men attempting to speak on issues that affect them is not harassment. You are asked to defend an ideology that literally opposes equality, that lies to women, that infantilizes women, that celebrates genocidal racists, and when asked to offer a defense you run crying to moderators that you are being harassed.

Who is the bully again?

Guardian contributor Jess Zimmerman – and self-proclaimed “misandrist witch” – told Hess: “It’s inhabiting the most exaggerated, implausible distortion of your position, in order to show that it’s ridiculous.”

Except that when the actions of feminists are taken into account, it’s not the extreme position. It’s the norm. You just don’t like being called on it.

In other words, calling ourselves misandrists is both a way of reappropriating one of the most common insults feminists weather, and a way to blow off some steam after a long day of fighting the same battles we did 30 years ago. And honestly, if feminists really hated men we’d probably come up with a better way to hurt them than funny t-shirts that insist that their tears are delicious. (Men may have some very sensitive parts, but even the manhating-est among us doesn’t go around kicking them willy-nilly.)

No, it’s a way of attempting to deflect legitimate criticism. If your best defense against hatred is “I don’t kick random men in the balls”, you may want to rethink your position.

Despite all the fun-loving, internet-in-joke misandry, the vast majority of women and feminists do not hate men. Many of us might hate bad men: the sexists, misogynists and all-around jerks.

Your hatred prevents men from choosing parenthood. Your hatred prevents men from seeing their children. Your hatred prevents government services from assisting men and boys in any way. Your hatred demands men put themselves in harm’s way to protect you. Your hatred demands men cater to your every irrational demand and if you don’t think that harms men, you do not understand what harm means.

But our hatred is just a feeling, and not something that can impact men in any meaningful or oppressive way.

everyone

This hatred is not ironic. It encourages the world to continue to ignore the suffering of men and boys. You will be held accountable for that, Jessica.

Men who claim to be genuinely worried about man-hating or “misandry” are grasping at straws, and searching for a victim status that simply doesn’t exist. Guys are still doing pretty well, so let us have our “man-hating” fun while you go on ruling the world.

Let you have you man-hating fun? I don’t think so.

But keep one eye open. (Just kidding … sort of.)

Try it.

I dare you.

    Someone should try that “ironic misandry” thing with, oh let’s say, racism. Or misogyny. Yes, “ironic racism” and “ironic misogyny” – just blowing off a little steam you know. Pffft. Perfectly harmless!

    Valenti is really doing herself no favours is she?

    That entire post pretty much came across as “Yeah. I totally don’t hate men but if I did, it would be OK.”

    Here is what I have come to realize about the likes of women such as Valenti.

    Those divorced (or never married), older men that you see running out the clock of their lives in some dive bar; men who never really understood women; men who, for whatever reason, just NEVER got the hang of dealing with the opposite sex in any functional way….

    Their lives appear to revolve around their failures with women, they whine, bitch and moan about what was, what could have been….

    Valenti and her ilk are the flip side of that sad sack coin. Completely unable to understand being a man AT ALL; unable to form functional relationships with the opposite sex. The difference being that society celebrates the white, educated, articulate woman. The man without a woman past his “prime”? They don’t get the time of day or an ounce of respect in modern culture.

    Valenti is cut from the same fabric as a woman hating man; she’s more closely related to what she despises than she is able to admit.

    This article of hers makes it perfectly clear why she comes across as such a whiny, prissy, fussy, and I’ll say it again — extremely whiny — little girl. She really and truly feels like men have all power and women have none…and like the only way to get anything she wants is to stamp her feet and throw big tantrums all the time.

    It’s just a matter of being so locked into her own perspective that she can’t have empathy for what anyone else is going through — kind of like when you’re a teenager and it’s the end of the world when the boy you like doesn’t notice you — nothing could be worse than this trauma you’re having to endure…

    But most of us grow up and realize that while we were moping about not getting that date, girls in some parts of India had been married since age 9, and both girls and boys in some parts of the world were being sent out to work the streets to make money for their families, and some innocent black boys were getting crimes pinned on them and sentenced to death or years and years in prison…

    And as a journalist, you’d think Jessica would have had a major epiphany like most of us have, and realized that — as a white, middle class American woman with a college degree and a good-paying job, and a beautiful child and a loving husband who didn’t dump her (probably didn’t even get onto her) for screwing him over in her clusterfuck Christmas article — she is immeasurably lucky and blessed, and POWERFUL compared to most people in the world.

    She has so many choices compared to most men and women in most parts of the world. But all she can see is that she has to wrap a lot more presents than the average person.

    P.S. If her husband’s like most guys, he probably doesn’t read her articles. Maybe that’s why they’re still married. 🙂

    I think that the pidgeons are coming home to roost for your wacky philosophical opponents,
    While this is written with a lot of finger pointing at men, the statistics tell the story.

    As Captain Capitalism would say, “charty gooodness”.
    At the botom of it, I think men will find that living with women who don’t hate them to be more fulfilling. Deception is rife out there and few are taking chances.

    All this defense of men is appreciated but not really necessary. You must realize that real men are strong, which means that (a) they do not feel threatened by feminists and (b) they do not cry in the first place. Real men conquer (women, other men, the world).

    I laugh at feminism, these childish little girls living in their own delusion thinking they have the upper hand. If they ever do succeed in hurting men, they are ultimately hurting themselves too. Feminism isn’t just misandry. It’s a kamikaze suicide mission on a massive scale.

    Women who respect men respect other women too. Because other women own the same men. And abuse of men means abuse of women who have ownership of these men.
    All men belong to 3 groups of women:
    1) women from his family: mother, sister, daughter etc
    2) women in intimate relationships: wives, girlfriends, prostitutes etc
    3) women who depend on men for survival: women who eat corn and other grains harvested by men, meat, fish. Women who use electricity and water, who live in houses built by men. Who use objects invented by men etc.

    Another evidence of Jessica’s total lack of liberality when it comes to respecting differing housecleaning standards for different families, is a comment she made in an article she wrote bashing writer Jonathan Chait (link 1 below). In this article, she refers to Chait’s “argument that it would be more equitable for women to live in squalor than demand that their husbands do a fair share of the housework.”

    I don’t know much about Chait, but out of curiosity, I read the article she linked to to support her above comment (link 2 below), in which Chait described his (in my opinion) very egalitarian and mutually-respectful marriage, in which he and his wife had reached a compromise they could both live with. They both work, and she has higher standards of cleanliness than he does, to the point where she preferred them hanging out at her apartment rather than his while they were dating, so when they married, they figured out what they needed to do so that both could be happy raising a family together, and the end situation is that the house is cleaner than he’d keep it if he weren’t married to her, and messier than she’d keep it if she weren’t married to him.

    This is Jess’s definition of “squalor.” Methinks she actually has much in common with the Return of Kings writer who penned the article, “If There’s A Mess On Her Floor, Then She’s Probably a Whore. Sloppy women be damned.” I guess it’s true that the people at both ends of the spectrum — radical feminism on the one hand and radical anti-womanism on the other — have absolutely no room for liberality. Both have rigid standards for both men and women.
