We get email: Manly Man is Manly


I never cease to be impressed by the courage of anti-feminist, MRA Freedom Fighters! That was sarcasm. Dillahunty is off his rocker if he thinks feminism is merely the idea that men are equal to women. Feminism is a paranoid leftist ideology with a whole slew of dogmatic principles.
