TALES OF THE RED PILL – Feminist Allies of MRAs, Part II – Double Standards

Feminism is a men’s issue.

 Amanda Marcotte and others repeatedly insist that feminism is good for what ails men, in other words that feminists and women get to dictate to men what solutions are valid for men’s issues. This is part of the tradcon division of labor we see in so many marriages where the woman gets the responsibility and all the power over social relations – in this case, gender relations.…

TALES OF THE RED PILL – Feminist Allies of MRAs

Something you notice almost immediately in a space like Reddit MensRights is the number of women, often self-identified feminists, sometimes ex-feminists, who come by curious about a subreddit they have heard denounced as misogynistic, and have a look for themselves – or who are just interested in men’s issue and think that’s a good place check out.…

DEMONIZATION – Blaming men because women won’t approach

I don’t spend a lot of thought on straight dating but it’s a pretty live subject in some parts of the gendersphere, so the issue comes up a lot. Commenter Daisy had this insightful bit to say:

My opinion–lots of women get upset when men approach them for the same reason I do, they would rather do the approaching themselves.

Assholes Come in Two Flavours: Male and Female

A while back on tumbler I believe there was a young woman who talked about an unpleasant experience she’d had on the subway. A male cyclist hit on her and when she rejected his advance went a little, shall we say, sideways. This all happened in the relative anonymity of an empty subway car.…

Valerie Keefe tells a fellow feminist some home truths about what MRAs think of feminism and why

Commenter Valerie Keefe, a feminist, posted this comment to an article here. It was a re-post of a comment at the site she mentions below, where the blogger had posted a list of supposedly pro-male posts by feminists.

Most of the comment thread is interesting, worth a read, although in the end it dissolves into a bunch of puerility.…

MISANDRY – How a real feminist responds to gross, dehumanizing misandry

Commenter Marja Erwin posted a comment that included this very interesting link. She tells us she got into a flamewar over it. I’ll bet she did.

The comic shows a young woman on a park bench doing something on some kind device. A man who she thinks is “Eeeewwww….gross!” sits down and looks at her.…

MISANDRY – Dismissing women’s rape of boys

Commenter MaMu1977 left one of his very powerful comments in Typhonblue’s post “Male Privilege: Slut Shaming”

 @Ginkgo

“Got lucky”?
In my 33 years on this planet, I’ve known 7 boys who have killed themselves as the result of adult women/young boy relationships.

TALES OF THE RED PILL – Hogpunk’s Journey

Commenter Hogpunk contributed a comment in my thread about sons of feminists that I found so to the point that I asked if I could post it as an article, and he has graciously assented:

 

Hello Genderratic,

Gingko asked me for permission to post this comment I made on your blog; this is a cleaned up and very slightly altered version which I am more happy with.…

MISOGYNY – Hypocritical Accusations of Misogyny on MRM Sites and Neutering the Misogyny Bomb

One very familiar silencing tactic in gender discussions is the accusation of misogyny. Given the gynonormative value system of our culture, a charge of hating women is a scathing accusation. People have been seeing through it more and more, but it is still matter of some concern among MRM commenters.
