Feminist: I believe that the Men’s Right’s Movement is reactionary and essentially misogynist.
MRAs: How dare you! Why would you ever say something like that, you feminazi cunt?!
MRAs: *death threats*
MRAs: *rape threats*
Feminist: You’re right - your reasoned arguments have won me over. You’re not misogynists at all. I must have been mistaken.
you can’t judge a movement’s beliefs by its idiotic followers; that’s like saying communism is wrong because stalin was a dictator.
if a person uses an argument incorrectly to justify their hatred, the problem is not the argument, but the person.
But this *IS* their movement. This is what they do. Time and time again. The list of self-identified MRAs who DON’T do this sort of shit is shorter than the list of those who do.
This is the premise of their movement.
no, those are, as i’ve stated, its idiotic followers.
the fact that the catholic church has killed millions ‘in the name of god’ doesn’t disprove god’s righeousness, but catholic people’s. this principle still applies if every single catholic in the world had actively and voluntarily participated in the Inquisiton; right and wrong are not subjects to democracy.
about the premise of the movement, i (quite painfully) just spent 20 minutes on a couple of MRA websites (mensrightsmovement.net and mensactivism.org, namely), and on no occasion did i find any evidence that they condone and/or promote rape and/or death threats; in fact, it really seemed more that they condemned it.
MRA: *tells rape joke*
Feminist: Hey that’s not funny. It’s misogynist and it’s perpetuating rape culture while being very dismissive of real experiences that rape victims go through.
MRA: Waaaahhhh!!! Why can’t you just learn to take a joke? Lighten up. Not everything is sexist. Stop playing the victim.
Feminist: men are so entitled.
MRA: WTF?? WHY ARE YOU SO SEXIST? YOU’RE SUCH A MISANDRIST. WHY DO YOU HATE MEN? YOU MUST HAVE DADDY ISSUES. MISANDRY IS REAL.GET RAPED.
"What’s worse than a baby in a trash can? A baby in two trash cans"
that joke makes me giggle loudly all the time. does that mean i’m okay with infanticide? no, not really. it just means i find the jest amusing.
pretty much all jokes are offensive to some degree; that doesn’t in any way mean the speaker dismisses the possible gravity of the situation, or that they’re promoting its repetition.
