We’re no strangers to the ravings of feminists. In fact, there’s very little that we haven’t seen or heard. With the popularity of the Women Against Feminism hashtag, the web is filled to the brim with feminist bullshit.
But sometimes there are things said that are exceptionally bad. Words that are so bafflingly dumb, so mind-numbingly stupid, that it simply must be shared. Because this is a level of ignorance that must be seen to be believed.
Stephen A. Smith has been suspended by ESPN until August 6, 2014
Stephen A. Smith has been suspended by ESPN until August 6, 2014, because of his comment on ESPN’s “First Take” discussing the NFL’s two-game suspension of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice on charges of assaulting his now-wife.
Stephen stated, “Let’s make sure we don’t do anything to provoke wrong action … we’ve got to also make sure that you can do your part to do whatever you can do to make, to try to make sure, it doesn’t happen again.”
Coworker Michelle Beadle responded on Twitter shortly after: “I was just forced to watch this morning’s First Take. A) I’ll never feel clean again B) I’m not aware that I can provoke my own beating.”
Stephen has since profusely apologized, saying he was not saying women are responsible for their own abuse. He stated “It was not what I was trying to say. Yet the failure to clearly articulate something different lies squarely on my shoulder.”
ESPN is strongly against personalities attacking each other on social media, but it has not punished Beadle. [Of fucking course not!! Women can defy all rules because feminist vagina.]
Ray Rice allegedly hit his then-fiancé after she attacked him. His now-wife admitted she hit him first.
Whoopi Goldberg has come under attack for supporting Stephen Smith, sharing that this assault, initiated by Rice’s wife, is what Smith was referring to. Whoopi firmly states, “If you hit a man, don’t be surprised when he hits you back.”
[I fully agree. Feminists who don’t get this need to be asked, Are they okay with violence? Are they okay with people being hit and they cannot defend themselves? If they are not, then it needs to be pointed out that they do not see men as people.]
FBI faulty forensics led to nearly two decades of potentially innocent people rotting in jail
The FBI recently discovered errors in forensics spanning nearly two decades. U.S. officials began this inquiry in 2012 after The Washington Post reported that flawed forensic evidence involving microscopic hair matches might have led to the convictions of hundreds of potentially innocent people. Most defendants were not told of these problems in their cases.
The inquiry includes 2,600 convictions and 45 death row cases from the 1980s and 1990s in which the FBI’s hair and fiber unit reported a match to a crime scene sample, before DNA testing became common. The FBI had reviewed about 160 cases before it stopped, officials said.
Three defendants were executed and one died in prison in the time it took for officials to re-examine the 60 death row cases that were possibly tainted by agent misconduct, most of which involved the FBI hair and fiber unit that has come under scrutiny.
This recent restart of the review is finding that there are some errors in forensics in the majority of cases. According to a Justice Department spokesperson, officials last August completed reviews and notified a first wave of defendants in 23 cases, including 14 death-penalty cases, that FBI examiners “exceeded the limits of science” when they linked hair to crime-scene evidence.
The department is notifying defendants about errors in two more death-penalty cases and in 134 non-capital cases over the next month, and will complete evaluations of 98 other cases by early October, including 14 more death-penalty cases. After over two years they will have completed 10% of the 2,600 cases in question.
Senior editor at Buzzfeed creates a campaign of unapologetic sexism
The popularity of the Women Against Feminism hashtag has many feminists less than enthused. With anti-feminists demanding that feminist ideologues address their grievances, it’s no wonder that so many of them are grumpy. Luckily, Katie Notopoulos has arrived to solve all their woes.
Her solution? Unfollow all the men in your Twitter feed so that it becomes an echo chamber of women who always agree with you. Well done, Katie, thanks to feminist logic, now you only have to deal with the women who disagree with you. Because of course women never ever say hateful things online, or have opinions of their own. If they do, well, then they must be men in disguise.
While her article and campaign could be interpreted as a mean-spirited joke, or an act of trolling, it should surprise no one that there are people who are dumb enough to comply. In a weird way, this is helpful to many men on social media. Because if a follower of yours is enough of a passive-aggressive psycho to participate in this bullshit, then really they are doing you a favor.
Troll or not, Katie Notopoulos is proof that there are misandrists in high places and that these kinds of idiots truly walk among us.
Women Against Feminism is a conspiracy
Nina Burleigh concludes, with the power of her feminist logic, that the Women Against Feminism are men or male avatars, which is probably one of the most sexist things that many of us have seen or heard in the past. The irony in this is that this is coming from the group of women claiming to be acting in the best interests of women.
What does it say when the first thought that these feminists have is that women cannot draw such conclusions on their own? Burleigh is not the first feminist to suggest that Women Against Feminism is a hoax made up of men pretending to be women. Jessica Valenti and several others have suggested something similar. Burleigh had this to say on the topic:
“Everything about Women Against Feminism suggests it’s a sock puppet for the aggrieved misogynists and pedophiles of the anti-feminist men’s rights crowd. The main clue is that almost all the women on the site are nubile and posed in ways that fulfill dirty old men’s wildest dreams about pliant young things.”
Jessica Valenti tweeted:
“Sort of amazing how many “women” joined twitter the day #WomenAgainstFeminism started. CURIOUS.”
It is truly amazing how sexist these well-known feminists are. What they are saying is that this is not merely a response to the problems within feminism. That this is politically motivated by conservative ideals being pushed onto women by their husbands and boyfriends. So if a woman considers the way her actions negatively affect men, these thoughts are not her own. They are the work of the patriarchy using them as a pretty puppet for perverted white men.
It’s nice to know that the moment the feminist movement comes under legitimate criticism, their first thought is that it must be some kind of MRA conspiracy. Because women can think for themselves, but only in ways feminism approves of, and if not it’s surely the work of the patriarchy. Way to protect women’s rights, ladies. We knew you’d find a way to silence dissent somehow.
The cult of motherhood is pervasive in modern culture, making sure that we never forget that moms are the supposed end-all be-all of sacrifice and success. Enter Cheerios, a cereal brand that has recently chosen a marketing avenue that includes celebrating dad-hood, and they nailed it. Just last week, Cheerios released a 2-minute promo following around a dad as he sums up everything awesome and important about fatherhood. From the little fun things like getting dirty, telling jokes, and building forts, to the more complex arts of helping with homework and leading by example, dads play a very important role in children’s lives by stimulating imagination, educating, and teaching morality. Dads are phenomenally multifaceted, breaking rules when it is time for fun and making rules when structure is needed. They are also excellent at expressing love and affection, even if it is in a variety of non-traditional ways.
But one of the most important aspects of dad-hood is aiding in the transition from adolescence into adulthood, especially teaching boys how to grow into healthy, strong men. Kids look up to dads as role models and teachers. Most of us are familiar with the statistics connected with fatherless homes, so we know how important dads are. It is extremely refreshing to see advertising focusing on the positive side of fatherhood, especially when we are bombarded in the media with images of incompetent dads who are viewed and treated like overgrown children. Not only are involved fathers necessary, but we also need to start embracing them as the norm, not statistical outliers. Cheerios has a pretty solid history of showing fathers in a positive light, and they really got it right with this commercial. Other companies and brands need to take note of this success.
