How many falls does it take to level up from biased media to journalist?

The #gamergate protest started as a result of evidence hinting that many sources among games media were colluding together behind the scenes to promote their own agenda. The most obvious piece of the puzzle was a series of articles, all posted on the same day, giving a false description of gamers that was apparently intended to be derogatory, declaring their interests unimportant to either media or creators in the gaming industry, and insisting that they as media are entitled to continue their bad habits with impunity.…

#gamergate: Is establishment journalism dead?

“Journalistic integrity.”

Many of us in the men’s issues community have been calling that phrase an oxymoron for a long time. Establishment media hasn’t killed it, but it has irreparably damaged our belief in it.

That’s an adept description of the incident, and in short gives the reason why the discussion began and continues.…

Dear Feminists, FTHO

Since the May 23 killings in California, feminists have been trying to exploit the tragic deaths as political fodder by ignoring the reality of Elliot Rodger’s rampage and substituting their own.

Many women have participated in a hysterical rush to vomit hateful, male-blaming rhetoric interspersed with orgasmic renditions of female victimhood and helplessness.…

Zombie culture. It’s not alive, but it’s not dead, either.

It has come to my attention that feminists just don’t understand zombies.

The feminist crusade against fatherhood

Feminists will tell you that “Patriarchy” is the reason fathers are discriminated against in criminal court, via the presumption that women are better caregivers.
