Vectorman vs The Space Libbers

Superman was an MRA!

Never underestimate the grandiosity of an MRA in a snit. Here, from The Spearhead, is some dude called ConShawnery suggesting that dudes grousing about women are basically the equivalent of superheroes facing down the evilest of supervillains. He also has some thoughts about cunts.

To women, a man who has seen the truth about them is a dangerous animal, a vector of viral information that, if allowed to spread, will bring their matriarchal palace crumbling down. A man like that is literally the most dangerous thing to women and they know this. This is why 18-year-old daughters will abandon their fathers, mothers their sons, wives their husbands, sisters their brothers – as soon as it becomes clear that he’s taken the red pill.

This is also why “cunt” is such a dirty word while “pussy” is not. “Pussy” is adoring (whether it’s derogatory doesn’t matter), “cunt” is not. A man who uses the word “cunt” is a man for whom the magical hold of vagina has worn off, and he must be excluded from polite society at all costs, lest he infect other men.

About David Futrelle

I run the blog We Hunted the Mammoth, which tracks (and mocks) online misogyny. My writing has appeared in a wide variety of places, including Salon,, the Washington Post, the New York Times Book Review and Money magazine. I like cats.

  1. Funny that the thread doesn’t start becoming all about me until people start claiming that I am supposedly making the thread all about me.

    I made one joke and then suggested that someone had a bad sense of humor (or no sense of humor for that matter). Then the pile on happens. Then I defend myself. Then the thread is about me…. but I am not the one who made it that way. So if you don’t want threads to become all about someone, stop making it about me and trying to misrepresent every single damned thing I say.

  2. (and no, I am not actually suggesting that every single thing I say is incorrectly represented, but a lot is)

  3. Can we move on from this derail? There is nothing more of interest to be said about it on either side.

  4. lj: You may not like the trufacts, but it was plainly not clear or I’d not have failed to get it(unless you are claiming I am uncommon dim; so dim that no one would ever think me the slightest bit of informed or educated).

    As to the “groaner” category of joke, d’uh, but yours didn’t really fall into that category. Why? Because it was meant to make you look good. Poorly hidden in that comment was how great you are, because you “eat pussy”. IT was a dig at those who don’t, and contextually implied that the OP is of the sort who doesn’t. Attached to that was a sentiment of, “and besides, words are listener dependent.”

    Which isn’t really true in the first place. In the second, that argument completely undercuts the alleged point of the, “joke”.

    Even that could have been saved with a quick explanation that you tried a joke, and it failed (see my trufact 2, above).

    But you didn’t. You tried to double down by insulting hellkell’s sense of humor, and now you are trying to re-raise by saying I don’t know what I’m talking about when I critiqued the reasons for your previous failure.

  5. David: Mea culpa. I didn’t see your comment before I posted (I post at the bottom of the page).
