MALE DISPOSABILITY – DOD to lift the ban on women in combat – Whoopdy-doo – Let’s see if they manage to keep from fucking this up.

And the signs are not good. Judging from their stated motive for lifting the ban, they have it exactly backwards.

When these advocates complained the ban was discriminatory, I feel confident in guessing they were complaining about discrimination against women.…

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

 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.

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:

Assholes Come in Two Flavours: Male and Female
