Fitz might have a friend other than Simmons! Kind of… sad that it took half the guy’s brain being shorted out and Simmons leaving for it to happen, but it’s kind of nice to see him finally having more than one friendly person to talk to…

TERF'S and transphobia within the feminist community - TV Tropes Forum
Poster: I know we already have LGBT threads and feminist threads, but I thought this issue warranted it’s own discussion. Now, it’s well known that Trans exclusionary Radical feminists exist mostly within the (radical) feminist community. Anyway, has anyone here had any issues/encounters with TERFS? What do you think of them? Do you think what they preach counts as hate speech, or not? Should they even be considered feminists, or not?
Mod: Declining to open. This will become a bitching thread.
Lolz. So it’s fine that the Sexism & Men’s Issues thread is nothing but bitching about MRAs and other people who support men’s rights (yes, that’s right, no supporting men’s issues in the Men’s Issues thread; it’d be funny if it wasn’t actually the truth), but calling out bad feminist behavior, oh well, we can’t have that now can we…
National Review Writer: Women Who Have Abortions Should Be Hanged
Kevin Williamson, a correspondent for National Review, suggested Monday that women who have abortions should be hanged.
Just in case you needed more proof that “pro-life” isn’t really actually about being “pro-life”.
You know what somebody needs to invent is little unobtrusive noseplugs specifically for people who have allergies, the flu, or a cold.
Like, when I’m at home and tired of wiping my nose every two seconds I fold over a tissue a certain way and kind of stuff it into my nose, but it obviously looks ridiculous and I’d love to have something I could wear in public. It’d basically be a little clear plastic under-nose connector attached to two things of dyed black absorbent material. You’d stick it just inside your nostrils, and then be able to walk around for at least a short while looking halfway normal without either a tissue glued to your nose or mucus running down your face.
So I’m pretty sure that I managed the irony of getting a flu shot but then catching a cold right afterwards.
Ugh. I hate being sick because I almost never get sick, so when I do it hits like a ton of bricks.

Hah, yes, GirlWritesWhat. I’ve watched a couple of her things, including the vid you linked. I don’t agree with all of it (I think “evo psych” is at least mostly, if not complete, BS, personally), but I agree with the general premise that the reason feminists hate “Nice Guys” so much is because they don’t want to be honest that what they’re attracted to and what they’re supposed to say they’re attracted to, don’t match up.
The more I see male comedians making bullshit points that “champion” women’s rights or perpetuate false stereotypes against men in an attempt to kiss ass to feminists, the more I want to try to come up with a comedy routine that perpetuates stereotypes against women and champions men’s rights just to see the reaction from everyone.
Especially since there is a LOT of stuff I could tell that’s negative about women that would be 100% honest experiences from my life.
In which Jimmy Fallon nails it.
If by “nails it” you mean “completely ignores the facts”, then sure. Women not believing in the studies which keep showing women to get paid equally for equal work doesn’t make those studies stop being true; it just makes women about on par with people who don’t “believe” in climate change or evolution.
And even if it were true that women weren’t getting paid equally despite having a law enforcing equal pay, all that would mean is that feminists are completely useless and made no effort in the past 50 years to ensure the existing law was being being followed.
So which is it, feminists? You admit the studies keep proving women get equal pay for equal work (and women just do different and/or less work) and you’re dishonest, or you admit to being completely useless? Doesn’t look good for you either way.
