The frightening thing is that, like most of their other campaigns against women, they see themselves as just warriors fighting for what’s right. This is primarily because they firmly believe that any woman who speaks up on women’s issues is completely disingenuous and only doing it for the purposes of self-promotion, and that any man who does is looking to get laid, because they actually cannot possibly imagine a scenario in which someone would genuinely give a shit about women.
 
Members of this board, as well as “Men’s Rights Activists” in general, tend to go apoplectic at even the most mild implications that women might be human beings. For them, this is simply “not allowed” and must be punished swiftly and severely, as they appear to believe that feminism is the one obstacle in the way of all these pathetic neckbeards getting their pick of supermodel girlfriends who obey their every whim. The goal is to make it as uncomfortable to speak out about misogyny and women’s issues as possible, which is why they go to the wall in terms of harassing women like Emma Watson. At the end of the day, this is the crux of it. It would be sad if it weren’t so vile.

Emma Watson threatened with nude photo leak over UN speech on gender equality

Because of course she was.

Today, I was walking to Trader Joe’s when I came across an art fair. It seemed pretty run-of-the-mill: mostly paintings and jewelry, a few clothing booths, and so forth. On my way out, the last booth I passed was selling furniture and household goods made from reclaimed wood….

I love this post. It feels like someone else took my brain for ride in Cali. But with a greater ability to articulate in social media. Seamlessly relate-able
