I’m sorry, readers. I have failed you.


was going to write a rebuttal to Matt Walsh’s “Dear Men, Abortion Is Not A Women’s Issue. We Have A Duty To Get Involved.” post, but I just couldn’t.

The second paragraph:

I am a man with an opinion about abortion. Even more shocking, I did not consult with the Feminist High Council before formulating my opinions. I did not check the rule book to make sure my man-opinions are within the spectrum of approved perspectives for someone of my anatomical persuasion. I did not fill out the forms requesting permission to publicly voice my unsanctioned beliefs, nor did I review the guidelines to determine the manner and extent to which they can be voiced.

I just can’t get past that bullshit. The condescension is too much.

Matt Walsh is not a good person.

    An expression of endearment addressed to men, by a man?

    Clearly Walsh is overdue for a visit by the True RedWhitenBlue American Inquisition!!!1!

    That’s not “mansplaining” that’s … epic mansplaining.

    Usually when someone starts off with something like that it’s because they know they’re about to stick their foot in it but they’re too arrogant to pause and think about where their foot is going. Rather than take the time to do a little research and cautious foot placement, they go stomping in, sob-shrieking a notpology for the mess that they are making. How manly.

    When I first read this post my blood ran cold. I was horrified that a man I respected so much could say things like this. Was I going to have to reassess my opinion of one of the visionary founders of the Upright Citizens Brigade?

    Thankfully it turned out to be just another right wing douchebag who farts and blog posts come out. What a relief!

    Translation: We have a duty to force our will onto women’s bodies. And if they don’t like it they can make me a sammich.

    (Side note, why do MRAs think it’s cute to spell “sandwich” incorrectly?)
