No Sexism Against Men? Really? (A response to Anita Sarkeesian)

You know, part of me is getting tired of talking about this.  But I have to.  I genuinely have to talk about these people.  Why?  Because the mainstream media won’t call them on their bullshit!  This woman, Anita Sarkeesian, has been coddled and given the “awww, poor oppressed woman” treatment by every single news outlet she’s gone to.  Even Stephen Colbert, the man who openly called Sarah Palin on her crap, gave her a pass.  It’s ironic, because if you watch his refutation of Palin, with her online site being a place for people who already agree with her to hear what they already know, it is a brilliant critique of Sarkeesian too.  However, this woman has decided to ride this bandwagon to its fullest, and I am just dying to see if the rest of the media will just go with her forever.  If they will accept her narrative at face value without end.  How long will it go on?  I guess we’ll see.

But to the point of today’s post.  See, Sarkeesian has recently made Twitter the front line of her battleground against men.  After all, she only puts out videos every few months, even though they are all already made.  For real, she just releases them in a timely way, so as to maximize her profits.  I wouldn’t be surprised if she starts capitalizing on her newfound popularity with a TON of those videos getting released, now that she knows that it will bring her money.  She is a con artist, after all.  If she can’t help her con, what’s the point?  It’s all about the money.  For her, anyway.  For Jonathan McIntosh, it’s real.  For her, it’s a game.  One that is making her very wealthy.

On Twitter, Sarkeesian has decided to make her anti-men campaign take flight.  The first was in a Tweet she did where she said that school shootings are because the patriarchy makes men into monsters.  Yes, because no woman has ever done anything horrible, right?  But maybe that’s on the patriarchy too.  So, yeah, men are bad, because the patriarchy makes them so.  That’s not the least bit insulting or making a caricature of men.  Nope.  That’s just how it is, according to her.

But that’s not the real treat.  No, the real treat is a post she did very recently, where she decided to lay it all out.

There’s no such thing as sexism against men.  That’s because sexism is prejudice + power.  Men are the dominant gender with power in society.

It makes sense that you’d post that on Twitter, Anita.  Anywhere else, we would expect you to defend an argument that vacuous.  But one can only give so much evidence in 140 characters.

I hate to break it to you, Anita, but you’re wrong.  And guess what, I am going to give evidence, to support my claim.  Because I am not limited to 140 characters.  I can go on for a LONG time.  So let’s get started.

First, the legal system is CLEARLY biased towards women.  After all, women get roughly 30% less time for equivalent crimes as men.  Women are also given the benefit of the doubt far more than men.  Like that woman who blew her husband’s head off while he was sleeping.  She took a shotgun, went into the bedroom, put it against his temple and killed him in cold blood.  She claims that he abused her, and that’s it.  The jury finds her not guilty.  Really?  Could a man get away with that?  Domestic abuse of men does happen.  But the law doesn’t take it nearly as seriously.  Neither does society.  Yet, it is almost as common as domestic abuse against women.  Also, women are clearly favored in child custody battles, even though there are PLENTY of deadbeat moms out there.  One of my oldest friends grew up with one, who decided to ditch her and her two brothers on a dad who wasn’t qualified, either.

Then there is that lovely tidbit of how only men have to sign up for the draft.  I don’t see you women gunning to get that little bit of inequality fixed.  No, you lot are happy to stay out of it, not wanting to have the same duty to your country.  After all, it would be a real shame if you had to leave Twitter to go defend your home and family when World War III breaks out, wouldn’t it?

But one of the biggest pieces of sexism against men is in respect to having a child.  A man has one decision that he can make, in respect to being a parent, while women have a vast number of them.  The man’s one decision is – cum in her pussy or not.  That’s it.  After that, there is nothing that he can do.  Meanwhile, what decisions does a woman get?  Well, if she has unprotected sex, she can choose to go to Planned Parenthood the next day and take the day-after pill.  She can also have an abortion.  She can also give up her baby for adoption.  She can also come to the dad and demand his money, even though he had no say in what happened, past cumming inside her.  Maybe it was a bad decision, but why should this decision cost someone for the rest of their life?  Most people don’t agree with me, on this.  Most people give me the “well, he made the choice, now he has to live with the consequences.”  How many rape victims who are forced to have their rapist’s baby have been given similar lines?  After all, they chose to go to that party.  They chose to wear those clothes.  They chose to go to bed with that guy.  See how that works?

It’s interesting that you talk about how sexism is about prejudice and power.  A trend that has been noticed is that, as the number of female bosses has risen, the number of sexual harassment cases against female bosses has risen too.  In fact, it’s almost at the same percentage as it is against men.  So yeah, it is about power.  And those who have it use it.  Turns out, men and women are more alike than you want to admit.

When you claim that there is no sexism against men, Anita, you are showing that you don’t care about the truth.  It doesn’t matter to you.  After all, the truth gets in the way of the narrative.  And we can’t have that, can we?

Until next time, a quote,
