Life Before Feminism: Elliot and His Charge Dodger, er, Dodge Charger


A blast from the past. Elliot is (inadvertently) DHV-ing out the wazoo! That’s Demonstrating Higher Value, for those not hep to Pickup Artist lingo.

This isn’t, strictly speaking, “life before feminism.” It’s life just as the second wave of feminism was getting going. Indeed, the rather forward women in the ad are essentially Madison Avenue’s version of liberated women.

And this  seems to be how most MRAs continue to see feminism today — as an elaborate plot designed to allow bossy, manipulative, “hypergamous” “empowered females” to better exploit hard-working beta men.

The ad is of course insulting to both men and women, but I imagine any MRA viewers who stop by will only see the misandry.

But, hey, it is a pretty cool car.

  1. lol @Joe

    Well, let’s see, you constantly complain about immigrants in Britain, you have bragged multiple times about how you used to make a massive salary, own a house debt-free, and have invested heavily in gold, and that you only have a lower-mid income because you choose to work in SEO.

  2. Oh, and you apparently have a Ph D! Sounds like you’re struggling there, champ.

    Now that you’ve tried for the derail, here’s the Question again:

    Does it bother you that all major MRA writers have advocated for more rape, violence, and child abuse in society? Why or why not?

  3. @Ugh – What a crock of Bullshit! Lies! And Distortions! That you obviously, pathetically, believe because you’ve only ever read anything I’ve written through the biased filter of your preconceptions. *slowhandclap*

    Point 1) – LIE. I won’t even dignify that racist BS. You racist shit, Ugh.
    Point 2) – LIE. I used to make a lot only compared to any other time in my life. Compared to the average wage in the Western world it was very ordinary, never “massive”. And I’ve never described it as such.
    Point 3) – LIE. I’ve never, ever owned a house, debt-free or otherwise. You might be confusing house with “home”. Here’s a clue: not just houses are “homes”.
    Point 4) – DISTORTION. I’ve never, ever had enough money to invest “heavily” in anything, by the standard of the West.

    By the way, don’t think I haven’t noticed that all you ever do is make ad hominem attacks, you utter wanker.

  4. Joe, it’s past your bedtime, pumpkin. You’re getting cranky.

  5. @Ugh – fuck you! And fuck your BS presumptive question!

    Given that I KNOW you misrepresent and OUTRIGHT LIE about ME – how could you possibly imagine that I’d take you or your word seriously about alltheMRAwritingevAR!??

    You have as much credibility with me as a 419 fraudster.

    Hey Ugh, here’s a question for you:
    Have you stopped fucking dogs yet? Well, have you? ANSWER THE QUESTION UGH!!

    Drink plenty of water before you go to bed. A multivitamin can also help prevent hangovers.


    (Does Joe know about camomile tea? It might help him chill out.)

  9. @Joe

    I’ve never, ever had enough money to invest “heavily” in anything, by the standard of the West.

    “Yes, having the money to buy thousands of dollars worth of shiny metal is incredibly privileged from a global standpoint, but it’s only moderately privileged in the West, so it doesn;t count.”

    Find me one popular MRA writer who has not advocated for more rape, violence, and/or child abuse in society.

    By the way, don’t think I haven’t noticed that all you ever do is make ad hominem attacks, you utter wanker.

    Stating that you support a movement of abuser apologists isn’t an ad hominem, it’s an acknowledgement of your stated political position. If you don’t want to talk about your support for abusers, don’t come talk about your support for abusers on a site that mocks people who support abusers.

  10. RE: Joe

    What’d I do for men’s day? Well, more importantly, in two days it’s my man’s BIRTHday, but regardless, I know how I’m celebrating! *eyebrow waggle*

  11. Uncle Joe: @Ugh – fuck you! And fuck your BS presumptive question!

    So you have no answer, got it.

    What I did for Mens’ Day? Nothing. Well, I spent it in bed, amusing myself with playing Puzzle Pirates, napping, catching up on Manboobz.

    Then I went shopping, made dinner (for three men and a a woman), we caught up on some telly; then did some more commenting here, read some twitter,and now I’m going to sleep.

    All in all I think I did at least as much good as you did; and I didn’t have to abuse anyone to feel good about myself.
