Sorry, but there simply is no excuse for "hetero cis men are fucking disgusting."

There is nothing righteous about it. It is absolutely a bigoted statement. It absolutely dictates identity to a huge chunk of the human race. It is absolutely casual misanthropy. It is a not-so-subtle "influence that plays at one's perceptions and shapes one's language, one's actions," toward the very evil that these supposed crusaders are fighting against: viewing the world in some sort of terms of Self and Other to negate the dignity of individual human beings and justify hatred of the Other.

To reply that such hatred is immaterial--after all, everybody knows hetero cis men rule the world!--or even better, somehow justified, is to live in cognitively fluent narrative purporting to be an accurate representation of the past.

In the real world, today, "hetero cis men" rule very little. They lost most of the jobs in the recession and are a minority of the workforce. They are automatically assumed to be pedophiles, which might have something to do with the fact that men are currently seven percent of elementary school teachers, which might have something to do with the fact that boys are suffering from a severe education gap, which might have something to do with women holding the solid and rising majority of degrees beyond high school, which might have something to do with those unemployment numbers, bringing us full circle, but moreover, might have something to do with the fact that boys are eighty-six percent of adolescent suicides. Note that this statistic comes from that well-known bastion of patriarchal propaganda, the CDC.

But completely apart from the actual damage done by a steady diet of prevailing "progressive" narratives... hetero cis men are fucking disgusting, boys are stupid, throw rocks at them, men can't be trusted to sit next to children on planes, men can't be trusted to be schoolteachers, or whatever, this approach is inherently flawed, and doomed to failure.

Identity based in ANY Self vs. Other paradigm, regardless of whether you identify as an enlightened self-identified progressive or a pathetically ignorant, bigoted, and most importantly, oh-so-privileged "fucking disgusting hetero cis man", is inherently adversarial. You can draw the lines of identity any way you like. Catholics and Protestants, Ottoman Turks and Armenians, Francophone and Anglophone, it doesn't matter. It always presupposes Us against Them.

As such, "challenging" the people you have classified as Other will never work. It's an inherently adversarial approach, and only results in trenches dug deeper.

Instead, you have to empathize with them. You have to understand what's driving them, and not from the standpoint of curing a disease or anything so fucking condescending, but from the standpoint of understanding what legitimate physical and psychological forces are fueling the behavior you view to be problematic so you can hew to those. You're not looking to challenge, you're looking to share, to teach, to help broaden understanding. That's the key to effective teaching. You have to go to them, to figure out the things they already understand and relate to, and then build from there.

Such an approach, rather than seeking out adversaries to define and challenge, seeks out individual human beings on their terms, truly identifies them as they would be identified, and aims at connecting and helping.

Wikipedia entry for the lazy.

And here is the book, which informs girls of the following:

> Girls, here it is―everything you need to know about boys: 1. Boys come from the Stupid Factory. 2. Boys are pretty much smelly and useless. 3. It is possible to have fun with boys, however..... 4. If you decide to keep a boyfriend, he will need to be housebroken.

>Nobody has determined a causal link or anything more than a weak correlation between the males’ lower achievement and the feminization of education. Men did not perform worse; we only saw an increase in female test scores after education was “feminized,” but that may also be due to other benefits from the feminist movement overall. Remember that this was because women were already performing worse in subjects like Math and Science, so it brought them up to (give or take) the same level as men. The “feminization hurts men” argument relies on conjecture, but also on arguments about biological essentialism, so I’ll address these issues at the same time.

Seems you didn't do your homework or that didn't do enough homework. As the feminization of education has in fact harmed men/boys in education. I can only speak about the US (more knowledgeable about the education gap in the US than Canada), but with K-12 teachers being predominantly female the lack of male teachers has meant a lack of male role models in the classroom. This has in fact hurt boys as they don't have anyone from their gender to look up to. When boys do have a male role model in the classroom they in fact do better.

The feminization of the classroom has also meant that girls are graded more favorably over boys when they don't behave like girls in the classroom (ie sitting still, etc etc). And that boys are punished for not acting like girls in the classroom by being displinced more. You also have the whole "boys are dumb girls are smart" attitude which has only contributed to the feminization of schools and that hurt boys.

This is besides how feminism more exactly 2nd wave feminism pushed for more women in college and help create Title IX, a law that despite in language in spirit favors women over that of boys. And has lead to least the US's college enrollment gap and to other issues.

>Yes, people actually claim this is fact (!!). Christina Hoffman Sommers is one famous proponent of this argument and I have no qualms saying that you should never read her work because her “scholarship” is irresponsible at best, and dishonest, close-minded and fear-mongering at worst.

So because you disagree with Hoff that her work must be dismissed and labeled as irresponsible? Instead of writing it off maybe you actually counter what she says.. As too often feminists write her off because of simply who she is and how critical she is of feminism. As heaven forbid one is critical of feminism.

>Biology and socialization are not mutually exclusive. There are very intelligent people who disagree with this statement but the best research I’ve seen shows that brain structure is probably influenced by social circumstances. Thus, brain structure is very likely influenced to some degree by social gender norms.

There are studies showing early on that there may be in fact proof/evidence that boys and girls in fact generally learn differently due to brain chemistry make up. Mind you I am talking when boys and girls start preschool/kindergarten here and even before that. I bring this up as at such a young age they haven't had much of a chance to be shaped by gender norms/socialization. Also there are some studies of late (tho I think they are flawed due to study methods) showing women overall smarter than men and its why women test better than men do.

>The teachers I’ve met are also largely concerned with student achievement at the individual level.

Most teachers are. That doesn't mean at a macro level there aren't issues that the feminization of education has in fact harm boys/men despite you thinking otherwise. As looking at the micro level its very easy to dismissed how the feminization has harmed boys and helped or dare I say priviledge girls.

>Male-dominated work pays more than female-dominated work.

Not totally true.

>Thus, the assumption that all boys who drop out do so because they are disadvantaged must be nuanced.

You seem pretty quick to dismissed any such disadvantage boys may or in fact have in the classroom. Seems you don't want to admit boys have any said disadvantage at all in the classroom. Or more so face any harm in the classroom. While I can only more speak on the education issue in US I bet if look into Canada I find many of the same reason to why there is an education gap in Canada much like there is in the US. Also least US wise the college enrollment is the biggest among the poor with more poor women enrolled in college than that of poor men. I bring this up as you are quick to point out men drop out of high school due the so called allure of making money, but seems you have not at all account for one's economic situation. As US wise there is a lot more outreach for women to go to college with scholarships aimed at them besides outreach programs, none of which are there really for men. And so you likely have men seeing and that thinking college isn't even a possibility for them.

>I suspect it has more to do with patriarchy and the above-mentioned labour market draw than biology (though all three might easily play into it)

It is easy to blame the "patriarchy" especially when you even admit to no looking into why boys are less engaged in school than girls (hint: lack of male role models, lack of empowerment at home, and outreach programs likely be your reason).

u/SerpentCypher · 17 pointsr/PurplePillDebate

Anti feminism isn't woman hating or cruelty wtf. Feminism =/= women? Nah.

My point is that it's fairly mainstream and socially accepted to hate on men. People using their real name and even those with blue checkmarks are free to say whatever they want about men on social media, they are able to write articles in mainstream publications about how men should be hated. There are zero repercussions for any of this. There is MaleTears merch and " "Boys are stupid, throw rocks at them" T-Shirts on Amazon FFS.

Create a twitter account, start up a #AllWomenAreCunts hashtag or something and see how long your account stays up. Go to the NYT and tell them you want to write anti female articles. Go to Amazon with "Girls are dumb" merchandise and see if they will approve of, stock, and sell it.

u/sethg · 14 pointsr/Judaism

I think it’s really hard to explain this kind of thing to mainstream Christians in the US, because, like the proverbial fish who can’t perceive water, these Christians don’t understand how pervasive Christian culture is in the United States, and therefore don’t understand why Jews—even Jewish atheists—might want to establish, within their own homes and intimate relationships, a place where that culture does not dominate.

Maybe, as a Christmas present, you could give your ex a copy of The Latke Who Couldn’t Stop Screaming.

We've got A LOT of Sandra Boynton. They're not all winners, but there are a lot more hits than misses. The Going to Bed Book and One, Two, Three! are favorites around here. Kiddo is also 18 months.

u/builtbro · 9 pointsr/MensRights

I didn't even know it was a "book" too. This is outrageously fucking disgusting. Read the description at amazon. This is going to be a movie that literally vilifies young boys and endorses violence against them. Fucking hell, sometimes I wish I never started questioning feminism and society's myriad blind bigotries.

u/sovietmudkipz · 7 pointsr/videos

At this point anime has transcended its original meaning. It denotes a particular style as well as the fact that it's a cartoon. Sure, literally anime === cartoon === anime, but if you say "cartoon" to someone they'll have a completely different conception that if you say "anime" to that same person.

Try it for yourself: make a list of 3 items that you would consider cartoons, then make a list of 3 items that you would consider anime. What are the differences? What are the similarities?

Also consider: word meanings can change by how they're used. This is the means by which languages evolve and why you aren't speaking Ye Olde English today. A great introductory book on the subject would be Andrew Clement's Frindle.

u/palcatraz · 4 pointsr/harrypotter

It is not a book. Or well, not a story book.

['Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find'] ( was released in 2001 with most of the proceedings made going to charity. It was released with an accompanying book 'Quidditch through the ages'. But neither of these books are story books. FBAWTF is a mock-up of the text book that Harry uses in the books and just gives some basic information on a lot of magical creatures. Quidditch through the ages is similar, except it is focused on quidditch history, game play, all of that.

u/berktree · 4 pointsr/stevenuniverse

The original run of comics (by Jeremy Sorese and Coleman Engle) ran for 8 issues. They are compiled in these TPBs: Vol 1 Vol 2

There was also a Greg Universe one-shot in the same series (probably my favorite of all the comics). That's available here

The more recent series, Steven Universe and the Crystal Gems, ran for 4 issues. They aren't available in a volume yet, only individual issues. Issue 1 is here, and this is the upcoming paperback.

There's also a standalone graphic novel.

u/Sarcastic_Username18 · 4 pointsr/adventuretime

Its not part of the main comics line, its part of the graphic novel line.

u/derefnull · 4 pointsr/harrypotter

Both Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as well as Quidditch Through the Ages are available in paperback form. They even sell them on Amazon.

I've only read Steven Universe & The Crystal Gems and I really enjoyed it. I think theres a new ongoing series coming out soon but im not sure when. I think ill pick up at least the first issue

u/SlothMold · 3 pointsr/suggestmeabook

Magic Treehouse books are for even younger grades, so I wouldn't increase the difficulty level too fast unless he wants it that way. Almost anything by Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, etc) or Diary of a Wimpy Kid might be a good next step. There's the Wishbone and Goosebumps series too.

Here is a full list

You can find the trades for cheaper than a comic shop by going to amazon

Here for volume 1

Here for volume 2

Here is the Steven Universe & The Crystal Gems trade

Here is graphic novel 1

Here is graphic novel 2

There are also a bunch of scattered issues that will probably be collected into a trade eventually. 2 are 1-shots from the original series. And there is currently a new series that has 6 issues.

Also if you don't mind digital copies of the first two volumes you can get them here for even cheaper

The set I have looks like this one and it has all of the notes and drawings from Harry, Ron, and Hermione. The set only has Fantastic Beasts and Quidditch Through the Ages. I got the Beedle the Bard separately.

From what I've seen, it looks like the new Illustrated Fantastic Beasts is really nice and you may consider getting that.

Without a doubt [this] ( Goosebumps #1 book. I think Goosebumps carry a nostalgic meaning with all of us and will always bring back the feels of being a kid again. Im 20 years old and I would read all of them over again! Though,it doesnt say shipping cost :(

  1. The King, the Mice and the Cheese. Every kid wanted it from the school library. I got in trouble when it got lost on my bookshelf and incurred late fees. Yes, my school had late fees.

  2. Fahrenheit 451 and The Technicolor Time Machine. I'm not actually much of a reader. TTTM my SF-obsessed father gave me to read and it's the first full regular non-school book I read. Then I read F451 because the title interested me in seeing it on his bookshelf.

    As an adult:

  3. Danny the Champion of the World for the absolutely wonderful father-son relationship. Most children's books present parents as adversaries. I remember my mother reading it to me as a child.

  4. The Harry Potter series, reading it to my daughter. The series is absolutely packed with wonderful messages for children.

Song Probably Away in a Manger. I like old music, and I have a Christmas album record collection - it's records my mother had as a kid that I've tracked down for her.

Snack I eat so many candy canes at Christmas. I also found vegan rum balls at the grocery store this year, and I've already eaten way too many of them.

Movie Nightmare Before Christmas. 1 October - 31 December, ever year.

Book The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming. It's so good. The latke screams a whole bunch, and when I read it with my niblings I love to get them to do the screaming bit. Littles and middles who have a caregiver should totally get them to read it to them and help out with the screaming bit.

The Ender's Game series, especially the later books(speaker, children, xeno). Something about the whole nature of Philotics struck me as a really attractive idea. I'm not saying I believe we're all connected by an invisible web of thought. But the idea that we are all connected is something that I've always held and Card's description of philotics was a great way for me to visualize that connection we all share.

EDIT: remembered another from 2nd grade. But fuck this is why i love google too, just typed 'book where the kids rename the pen' and it found it, top result. The book is called Frindle and if there's one book that helped shape my outlook on life its that book. It taught me that words are just words. They can be the most powerful things on the planet, but when you boil it down a word isn't actually a thing. A word is an idea, and you can make an idea mean anything you want it to.

> I've seen guys wearing T-shirts proclaiming the merits of slapping around women.

Sure you have. Maybe there's some really fringe thing that you sort of remember seeing once but so-sorry, you can't find a link right now - but I can find things that make fun of violence against men on a major, nationally accepted website:

Can you show me something similar directed at women on a mainstream site like that?

> "society tells girls it's okay for them to hit men." Got any citations for this?

A great example is this ad, which runs on mainstream network television. It features violence against men and there are no consequences for the abuser:

or this one:

Can you show me anything even remotely similar that's actually aired on national television?

They were also asked how many arguments ended with their partner, 'hitting, shoving or throwing things at you.'"

u/kittytella · 2 pointsr/sleeptrain

We would usually break a day down as such when she was 3/4 months (wikka wikka waaa....get it? break it down?.....the sleep regression hit me hard.)

wake: 6AM

Feed boob.

play on mat for about 40 min so I could pump. Don't bother to change out of PJs but do take off owlet and sleep sack.

(Her awake window at 3/4 months was about an hour and a half, but in the morning I found it best to put her down within an hour. )

6:40AM offer boob. Then change diaper and do quick stretches as the music and physical movement signals nap is upon us. Then put on owlet and back into sleep sack, then we head on over to her crib/ bassinet (I had my husband build the crib in our bedroom halfway through 4 months because she is a LONG baby and grew out of the Halo). we turn on the night light and owlet, then read The Going to Bed Book EVERY time - again same sounds lets her know it is nap time - then i have a short song I hum while rocking her into the crib (like 20 - 30 seconds) where lights go out and turn on the sound machine at the end.... I'm out. Takes all of 10 minutes from start to finish if she doesn't want to eat.

(we do this still at 6 months. same routine - works like a bloody charm. No matter where I am if I do it she will nap with no tears 9/10 times.)

The key is to start the nap routine and put baby down BEFORE their unique wake window is closed. An overtired baby will not go down on their own, or without a fight.

8:30AM wake and boob. Time to change diaper and put on some real clothes! Then we do our SparkBabies activities for the day.

9:30AM Offer boob - then nap routine commences. Diaper change, clothing change back to PJs, stretches - move over to crib, turn on Owlet and night light, read same book and hum a little tune sound machine on and out goes the lights by 9:50 so they have time to fuss it out a bit or just chill to sleep by 10AM.

11:00AM Boob and change back out of PJs.

12:00 NOON Offer boob - you know the drill now. Out by 12:20

1:30 PM Wake up and boob it - change and go play!

2:30 PM Offer boob - nap it out by 2:50 PM!

4:00 PM Wake up wake up it's time to boob, chhhhhhhaaange...and play!

4:30 PM Cluster feeding begins...offer boob.

5:00 PM Offer boob and nap it out by 5:30 PM.

6:00 PM Awake and change, time to boob it out and play! Offer boob whenever fussy from here on out!

7:00 PM Bedtime routine starts.

I set everything up beforehand - but we begin with a bath with some nice lullaby music (instrument only) with minimal play - this is soothing, but fun times. Then I bring her back to her change table where we dry off, get some lotion on, put on her owlet and onesie/sleep sack. You want dim lighting for everywhere but the bath. Then I go to the bed (her crib/bassinet was beside me) where it is DARK except for a very dim night light and nurse her while quietly reading Harry Potter. I nurse her last personally so she gets a full feed, but the trick is I am so terrible at transferring her to her crib/ bassinet I always wake her up. You want to MAKE SURE baby is not totally asleep before putting them to bed. Hold them in seated position 5 minutes after finishing boob and gently rocking them back and forth ( if you were rocking in a seated position) is a good way to gently rouse them a but, as well as get gas out. Then put them down drowsy but awake, turn on sound machine and peace.


It takes time....each nap and bedtime give it 5 minutes before going back in, or do 10 or 15 if you feel like that works better for you. The first night she fussed/cried for 9 minutes. Now she goes out on her own in 3 minutes or less, and puts herself back to sleep when she wakes (unless really hungry, we're not night weaning). We're down to 3 naps a day at 6 months, I know when she sleeps and so does she - it took a long time to get here but you can. It's totally possible!


Good luck!

The phantom Tollbooth.

I am going to offer the first books of a few series because I know with my daughter who use to hate to read and is just now realizing she likes it - does so much better with series than standalone because she gets more invested in the characters.

There is the Warriors

There is also the wimpy kid

There is the classic Narnia books

Of course I linked the first book in each of the series so he can see if he likes them before you get to many.

The service does include audiobooks but it doesn't seem to include every book in Unlimited with an audiobook. Going by the press releae where they state over 600,000 books while only saying "thousands of audiobooks from Audible," I guess the selection of audiobooks is way lower.

Life of Pi says Kindle Unlimited with Narration while this book

Every book in The Guardians of Ga'hoole Series, which is about an owl society on the bring of war. Teaches a lot of moral and life lessons, but in the disguise of owls. I loved this series as a child.

Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and any other book written by Roald Dahl. Just a warning for The Witches (although I couldn't find it in Kindle Format), it really spooks some children. I tried to read it to my little cousins and it just outright scared them. Although they are skiddish in the first place.

The Tale of Despereaux, Which is a book about a mouse (Desperaux) who goes on a quest to save a human princess. Great book.

The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, I'm not sure if this is too old for him or not, but it's super cute. And a real boy book too.

If he hasn't read them yet, every Dr. Seuss book ever.

Ella Enchanted, absolutely loved this one too. I re-read it countless times when I was younger.

The Phantom Tollbooth, which is just another great book!

I loved the Artemis Fowl books. They're easier than Harry Potter, probably a little easier than Percy Jackson.

Other suggestions:

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and other Roald Dahl books

A Series of Unfortunate Events

Diary of a Wimpy Kid books

The Phantom Tollbooth

This was one of my favourite books as a kid. Now all they have to do is make a film out of Red is Best.

Mischief Managed! =D (All of this is seriously making me so giddy!)

  1. I know alcohol is banned on RAOA campus, but Butterbeer isn't! Now I don't have to traipse all the way to Rogsmead Village to get my hands on this delicious stuff. I can simply enjoy it by the comfort of my common room fire while I diligently study for my classes. =)

  2. The riddle, without its "hair," is simply a stick. And what is a stick but a weapon for self defense, really? You know what else is great for self defense? Pepper spray. Pepper spray is great for self defense, especially when you're walking around the dark RAOA castle and grounds at night. I mean, the attackers will be expecting a defense spell, but they won't be expecting pepper spray to the eyeballs!

  3. Technically, not the answer, but some think that it is. I sorta think it is. I mean it sits on the same place, serves the same function. I especially love this one- I mean, look at the beautiful color! Perfect for keeping me warm on those chilly winter days at the RAOA castle (on off-uniform days of course ;D ).

  4. Well, according to my school supply list for RAOA School, I'm supposed to have these two items. Luckily for me, they come in a two-for-one price pack, which is great for us students! This is essentially the riddle, as well, so yes, boring, but it's required! ;D

  5. The riddle is, at its essence, a place to store and sometimes transport things. Currently, I am lacking a place to store and transport cupcakes. I'm getting more serious regarding my baking, and I hate it when my cute little cupcakes that I worked so hard on get ruined on the way to my birthday pal's common room. =( This special case would be amazing for storing, transporting, and delivering my nummy cupcakes around the RAOA castle!

  6. The riddle is related to superheroes, yes? Well one of my favorite superheroes is Chell from Portal. She's not a superhero, you say? Well, I beg to differ? I mean seriously, just look at all she went through and what she accomplished. She's a superhero to me, anyway. It would be amazing to wear her super awesome long fall socks underneath my uniform robes! Not only are they just plain awesome, but they'll keep my feet warm around the drafty RAOA castle. =)

    And again, thank you sooooo much for this! I'm so excited about all this Potterness!

I second the Tamora Pierce suggestion. Also definitely Gregor the Overlander! Suzanne Collin's lesser known series (she wrote Hunger Games). I recently finished reading (it's a 5-book series) and it was FANTASTIC. Just amazing. It's a YA series. The House of the Scorpion is also great, might be for your stronger readers. Eragon series is fun, and Dealing with Dragons is still one of my all-time favorite dragon books/series. Bruce Coville is a great author, and his work might be a little young but it's good to have a mix. I absolutely loved everything of his I have read, but especially Aliens Ate My Homework and the rest of that series. Most of these will appeal to the young men, hopefully.

When I was a young lady, I read pretty much anything, but I know a lot of boys like books with a boy main character. I really was a bit horse crazy, so here's some you might look into for your young ladies. The Saddle Club is a very long series about 3 girls and their horse-y adventures. It was really fun and it's great to find longer series because, if they like the first one, there's a lot to enjoy. (Oh a thought - you could always get the first one in a series, then just tell them to get the rest from the library or something, if there's budget concerns) I also liked the Thoroughbred Series and the wonderful Marguerite Henry horse books, especially the famous Misty of Chincoteague but really any of her books is a good read. My all time favorite horse series was and still is The Black Stallion by Walter Farley. Oh, how I loved that book.

There's a Boy in the Girl's Bathroom was fantastic the first time I read it, and I also like the "Wayside School" books which are both by Louis Sachar. Judy Blume is fun as is Beverly Cleary. Redwall gets a lot of kids into reading, you also might consider some high-level comics/graphic novels to reach a different audience. The Hobbit Graphic Novel has great illustration and I loved reading it so much when I found it one day in a store.

I found history pretty boring so avoided those books but I did enjoy The King's Swift Rider about Robert the Bruce and Scotland, might be the only vaguely historical book I remember reading around those ages. I tried to avoid mystery books more or less, but I loved Encyclopedia Brown (even though according to Amazon it's for younger ages). I enjoyed Harriet the Spy she was a pretty cool girl role-model at the time. My Side of the Mountain was absolutely fantastic and such a great adventure, though I enjoy everything Jean Craigshead George writes. I feel like Julie of the Wolves is pretty standard reading material, maybe not anymore, but what a great story. Oh my gosh, I just about forgot The Indian in the Cupboard, that was such a good story. Anything Roald Dahl is wonderful as is Jane Yolen, I especially recommend the Pit Dragon trilogy. The Golden Compass, So You Want to be A Wizard, Animorphs, Goosebumps, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, Kiki Strike, Dinotopia, Song of the Gargoyle and The City of Ember.

I am sure that is way more than you need, but my mind started racing. It was hard to stop once I started -- thank you for that enjoyable tour through my past. Lots of great memories of time spent reading. Hope you find some of this helpful, at least.

Feminists got no problems with this shit though:

Or the bullshit misandrist book it spawned:

Even worse, this shit demonizes little boys by targetting little girls perception of them. Feminism is a hateful ideology. If it cared about gender equality it would be right on tacking this kind of hateful shit instead of FINDING THINGS to be offended by. Why do they have to go over the top finding things to be offended about? Because the ideology is fucking irrelevant now. There is no institutionalism misogyny and there is no rape culture. It's 2014, not 1914, the ideology just makes shit up to remain relevant now and the low IQ imbeciles and poor fuckers indoctrinated in colleges eat it all up.

I'm just gonna leave all this shit here... fuck feminists, fuck blue pillers and the SJWs who support it. They support bigotry, and for all their talk of oppression, it is ironic that all they need to do to find the people who perpetuate hatred and intolerance is look in the mirror.

This is exactly the sort of mentality that makes me want to avoid working around women. It seems even the slightest interaction is so often treated as an opportunity to gloat, practice one-upmanship, and tell us what a useless bunch we all supposedly are. Tell me, is there anything men are actually any good at? It seems that the attitude of modern women is to insist at being as good at, if not better at anything men can do. We definitely seem to be entering an era of female chauvinism. And chauvinism really is the right word: 'the technique or practice of gaining an advantage or feeling of superiority over another person'. It's like the 1950s-60s, just flipped on its head: whereas it seems many men in that era tended to scornfully look down on women and patronise them at every opportunity, now certain women seem to take glee in doing the same to us. As if we haven't been through enough with the massive shit-test that is feminism, getting divorce-raped, deprived of contact with our kids, discriminated against in education and employment, still having to shoulder the burden of all the dangerous, dirty, shitty jobs that women don't want to do, having women demand more and more while giving less and less in return, now we have to suffer women peevishly telling us that even our greater physical strength is redundant. And I've got to say, that contrasts sharply with the female friend of mine who told me that "only men who do bodybuilding have 'proper' bodies". Don't forget, it's wrong to body-shame women, but average men's bodies are fit for little else but shovelling shit, it seems. Of course, if it wasn't for men's bodies, it's obvious where we would all be right now: living in grass huts and subsisting on foraged food, at best.

God damn, why can't you just be happy you helped someone. IDGAF what your co-worker said, you don't have to use it as an excuse to shit all over men. We've got enough fucking problems right now, in case you didn't realise.

You should get a copy of this book, it sounds right up your street.

Edit: I'm guessing you work in catering? Probably the worst boss I ever had was a female chef who used to treat me like absolute crap and call me a 'hysterical puff' in Italian. I've a feeling she was a man-hating so-and-so too.
