r/MensRights reminds me why I don’t Reddit

L'il Rascals scene: He-Man Woman Haters Club.

A funny thing happened yesterday. I started seeing hits from Reddit. A *lot* of hits. Fully a fifth of my traffic came from a particular thread on Reddit — despite my being in a slow blogging period, posting my one post I managed very late in the day, and despite the long tail on my …

Pattern recognition

It’s not a secret that I like JT Eberhard. I think he’s a generally savvy guy. He’s good at atheist activism. He is good FOR atheist activism. He is very much pro-equality, and he generally doesn’t take any nonsense that is directed at him. He’s got a serious feminism problem, though. Not that he’s anti-feminist …

Tropes Vs Women In Video Games: Pt. 1: Damsel In Distress

Here’s a 23-minute video, the first in a series, which of course can’t possibly exist because Anita Sarkeesian is a scammer who bilked people of money on Kickstarter then went to the Bahamas. Dense, information-packed, well-researched, correct in all its particulars, and can’t possibly exist. My search engine hits for “Anita Sarkessian scam” tell me …

Linus Torvalds rages against Microsoft, with a side-order of splash damage

Robertson: Marriages are ruined by ‘hard-nosed’ and ‘slatternly’ women

Guy starts playing more video games and paying less attention to his wife. Son worries about his parents, writes to Pat Robertson for advice. Pat, naturally, blames the wife. “Pat, how are you gonna blame the mother?” “Easy!” Yeah, when your worldview is that the man is the head of the household and can do …

Evangelist Matt Pitt’s misogynist stand-up act

Youtube comments: So why was he arrested in May for impersonating a police officer? Does that make women hot too? Marisa Young 2 hours ago A convicted criminal is probably not the right kind of person to get personal advice from. JeffDM 3 hours ago Oh yeah, it's hilarious all right. Let's gather together every stupid stereotype about women in one place and pretend we're honoring women when we're really making fun of them! And this guy is a preacher. Is it any wonder that more and more folks are embracing atheism these days? Wow. Marisa Young 5 hours ago What a douchelord. TheArchieSpeck 5 hours ago 2 This bro is a preacher? What a joke.

Today I Learned: women are easily manipulable via chocolate. Doesn’t matter how much pain they’re in, you can cure them with chocolate. Extrapolating from this, it doesn’t matter if they’re allergic to chocolate, you can cure them with chocolate. It probably also doesn’t matter if they’re seriously pissed off at you because you’re being a …

Xbox Live to crack down on sexism

So Halo 4 is being released tomorrow (what, is there something more important going on that I don’t know about?). Thanks to the recent acknowledgement by 343 Industries and Microsoft that half their potential market was being weeded out by the “early adopters” who are defending their territory via terrible sexist remarks, rape threats and …

‘Bout time the dictionary caught up

Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, who had already won many of our hearts by being the first publicly atheist leader of a major English-speaking nation, really proved her mettle among those on our side of the Great Rift last week-ish when she delivered this speech in Parliament, seizing on Opposition leader Tony Abbott’s hypocritical attempts …
