why do I have no (obvious) "MRA" commenters?
am I scary somehow? maybe just too dull?
you'd think this place would be just the fertile-est of fertile ground, you know, with all that patriarchal dicksucking I do on a daily basis. but, nothing. nary a peep.
welcome to you!
I don't know. maybe I'm wrong. maybe I'm running about 50-50.
Or species for that matter!
'scuse me while I comb my luxurious tentacles...
Maybe you should add a delurking edit to this post to get a head count. (pun intended)
alternately, a call to arms right here in the comments:
gentlemen, please delurk as the spirit moves you. I'm just curious.
if you really want 'em (which, you really don't--I mean the MRA and assorted misogynist/racist trolls, not just male posters, obviously), post something about Duke, specifically sympathetic to the stripper(s). that seems like a guarantee of bringing 'em screaming out of the woodwork, although not to the degree that it did when the story first broke, of course.
*ahem* You know, for some reason, I never get a brand-new latest-model iMac delivered straight to my door, from some kindly benefactor.
No one ever comes up to me with a plum publishing (for pay, even! lots of it! doing something i love!) offer, out of the blue.
Beautiful women do not come up to me in the street and offer me a massage, generally speaking.
For some reason, my apartment is not magically cleaned and organized and refurbished by the House Decoration Gremlins when I come home.
I don't know why, really...
*casts eyes to left and right, whistles a little tune*
Still not fun, though.
now this is really interesting.
NM - what gave you the impression that this blog is "full of feminists"?
and what gave you the impression that all those feminists were using this blog to "attract a real man"?
I'm not saying it is or it ain't "full of feminists", I'm just wondering how you came to that conclusion because I'm not sure it's explicitly stated.
in fact, some folks would insist there's no feminism here at all. not even a little bit.
it is very interesting to me that a blog that looks to be just oooooooooooooooozing feminism to one reader appears completely devoid of feminism to another reader.
do you consider yourself a "man of dignity", NM?
what defines "man of dignity" for you?
I wonder why nobody drops by with a suitcase full of cash...
I wonder why there's no pot roast in my freezer...
the universe is full of abundance, after all...
Me thinks someone has been watching far too much porn. Or something. I'm a feminist and have been since high school (even though I didn't know then that I was a feminist as I'd never even heard the word) and I can't say I recall getting DPed by any football players "during those formative years". For that matter, I can't recall getting DPed ever. Funny that.
Hey, I thought i was the only one with that hobby? Guess it's a good thing I have a man whose whole sense of self worth and dignity isn't related to his cock!
I'll try to comment more, AntiP. :)
...er, I think so, anyway. I've been out of carrot-waxing practice since 1995, but it still sounds appealing. Only one way to know for sure.
*Does Alan Cumming count as a Real Man? If so, I want two.
and yeah, I'm male.
Also, Ren's blog is not titled particularly feminist-ly - and for a period of time she was overrun with angry fellas.
I'm sure I could come up with more feminist or femininst-leaning or feminism-examining blogs that do not have explicitly feminist-sounding titles.
Amusing but not appealing.
guess you missed the "currently choking on heterosexual privilege" part.I should revise my profile to make it really really REALLY clear I'm bi.
if something as trivial as claiming to be too lazy to shave my legs keeps male commenters away - well, I don't know what to think about that...because if so, you'd think I'd be swamped by men telling me "disgusting hairy dykes blah blah blah all you need is a real man blah blah blah..." which I don't get either.
Anyone want cookies?
Rhumba only, from now on. maybe an occasional polka...
he will be so disappointed.
if that anonymous commenter comes back, maybe he'll explain what he meant in more detail.
if not, meh.
bring on the dangerously-handsome Argentine musicians! let's tango! into the night! tango with our hairy legs! Tango! Tango!
and cookies. bring on the cookies.
Like you I would have thought that little fact would spawn all kinds of "well-meaning" lectures from the boys.
Oh, and gee, NoMangina: having any penile erection issues lately??
(100% male, 100% progressive woman lover [Ann Coulter excepted]) 0% MRA dipstick)
I can't speak for anyone else, but I generally try to wade in slowly to discussions that seem intended to be buffered from any of my particular privileges.
