Frisky Rant: No, We Should Not Ban The Word “Feminist” Just Because Celebrities Talking About Feminism Annoys You

Frisky Rant: No, We Should Not Ban The Word “Feminist” Just Because Celebrities Talking About Feminism Annoys You

Yesterday morning, TIME Magazine’s Katy Steinmetz released a list of fifteen words from which we can chose one that most deserves to be “banned” in 2015.  The poll, which includes items such as kale and #sorrynotsorry, is intended as a bit of fun, but there is one point where I want to get off the ride:

feminist: You have nothing against feminism itself, but when did it become a thing that every celebrity had to state their position on whether this word applies to them, like some politician declaring a party? Let’s stick to the issues and quit throwing this label around like ticker tape at a Susan B. Anthony parade.”

I fail to see how one can have a problem with hearing the word feminist – and any discussion of it, including discussions participated in by celebrities — but not have a problem with feminism itself. Keep reading »

The Soapbox: Let’s Cockblock Julien Blanc & The Other PUA Creeps From Real Social Dynamics

The Soapbox: Let's Cockblock Julien Blanc & The Other PUA Creeps From Real Social Dynamics

Hey losers, I know you have copied my look with the carefully groomed hipster beard and the t-shirt and manufactured rips in my jeans, but you’re not me. You don’t have the balls to be me. You also don’t have what it takes to get as much pussy as I do, so I am going to take that money you earned from your shitty job and teach you how to treat women like dogs who will come begging for some cock. You will never be as good as me, but you can become part of my inner circle for only $360 a year.

You can also attend one of our five-day boot camps for only $2995. Isn’t it worth that amount of money to get fucked by women who are out of your league? Who cares if you are ugly, stupid and boring, you can get laid with our techniques, and as a bonus, we teach you how to get back at all of those whores who rejected you by luring them in. I’m just pimping my game, and I have to take a lot of flak for that from some feminist bitches, but it’s worth it.

This is the pretty much the philosophy for a circle jerk where guys are taught that lying, insulting and abusing women is the way to get inside of their vagina. I’ve just compressed pages and pages of articles, comments and videos such as “God Is On My Side: Intense Self-Amusement Tactics That Will Let You Choke Girls For Fun” by Julien Blanc into the above two paragraphs.

Funny Or Die’s Street Harassment Response And The Difference Between Men And Women In Public

5 Minutes Of High Fives Would Hurt, Though

Funny or Die made a response to Hollaback’s street harassment video and, of course, there are buzzkills all around. People who sympathize with women say it’s making light of a serious topic, while those who don’t sympathize are complaining that this isn’t what it’s really like for men.

Of course it isn’t, it’s satire. Keep reading »

Everything Is Terrible: Woman In Catcalling Video Gets Rape Threats On YouTube

Nothing Like Being Followed To Brighten Up Your Day

Misogyny just doesn’t exist! Catcalls are compliments! SMILE SWEETHEART. Tell that to Shoshanna B. Roberts, the New York City-based actress who starred in yesterday’s viral street harassment video (posting it again, above, because it’s worth watching multiple times), who then received rape threats in the comments section on YouTube. Hollaback, the anti-street harassment org. that made the video, tweeted about the harassment yesterday, asking followers to report/flag the comments with threats and they have, thankfully, since been deleted. Unfortunately, there are still plenty of dudes (and, yes, some women too) excusing the 100+ comments from strangers Roberts received as no biggie. So, you know, fuck everything. [Jezebel]
