Sexual privilege checklist

Just recently a reader sent me a link to an article over at cracked.com.  It was the typical groveling vomitus from a deep-fried feminized quisling calling himself Luke McKinney.  Seems Luke is up in arms about cutting edge social concerns like how much cartoon titty is exposed on female super heroes and the much more serious problem that his readers are starting to call him out for talking like Amanda Marcotte has promised him his very first blow job.  He spends the OP lashing out at his own readers for tiring of his feminist bilge, and true to current times many of them are not buying it for a minute.

In fact, a retort came that from one (someone delightfully calling themselves fulukemckinney) was so good I thought it deserved to be preserved here for posterity. It is a checklist of items reflecting sexual privilege, and my guess is that a link here will prove useful for MRA’s well into the future. The next time someone starts squawking about “male privilege,” just link ‘em and forget ‘em. Without any more ceremony, let’s get to it with thanks to fulukemckinney.

Sexual Privilege Checklist

1. Do you experience other people paying for your dates, or occasionally even picking up the tab in non-romantic settings? Or paying for your vacations when the relationship moves along?

2. Do you occasionally experience subservience and deference being volunteered to you by the opposite sex (opening doors, giving up a seat in the bus, standing up when you come in the room)?

3. Are you able to pursue what you are interested in at university without much societal pressure on “breadwinning” – although you could also take that route if it so interests you?

4.a Have you never been required to register for selective service? Would you never be ripped out of your life and forced to defend your country in time of attack or national emergency? Can you demand strength and full participation in society, but then get out of this obligation by pretending to be weak with no influence over society (but only when it suits you)?

4.b. Can you come up with any and every excuse to get out of the draft without being laughed at (“No one should be drafted” – when you would be the first to cower in the corner and demand that someone do something if, say, China & Russia combined and attacked full force – and “Men start wars …” when women are the majority of voters and the expression should be “Men are SENT to wars …” – exactly what you’re trying to get out of – and sometimes sent by M. Thatcher, G. Meir, I. Gandhi and other such women)?

5.a Will you statistically get a much lighter sentence for exactly the same offense if you commit a crime?

5.b Do you have special legal excuses for your sex alone which often allow you to get off the hook for the crimes you commit? Are judges usually more lenient, protective and paternalistic when it comes to dealing with your sex?

5.c Are you 25 times more likely to have your death sentence canceled?

6. Are you able to take on a job or choose a career route that is only capable of supporting yourself, with no thought to preparing yourself to also support a spouse/children, although you are also free to choose a more difficult career that will bring you more money? Do you not have much pressure on you with regard to this?

7. If you are in a committed relationship, do you have much greater flexibility to choose whether you want to work or simply stay at home (even without kids)?

8. Will you not be called an unemployed loser if you decide to be a homemaker?

9. If you have a flat tire on the road, if someone is harassing you in a public place, if an animal attacks you, or if you are lost, will someone be much, much more likely to step-in and assist you?

10.a Are people generally much nicer to you in public? Are you sometimes given privileged treatment or better customer service?

10.b Do you get first dibs on a lifeboat when your ship begins to sink?

11. Are you much more capable of “marrying up” and enjoying the money and status that comes with this?

12.a Are you statistically much more likely to be given money in a divorce – sometimes huge amounts – even if your behavior caused the divorce (e.g. affair) and even if you didn’t work for the money?

12.b Is custody of your kids almost automatic after divorce regardless of your parenting abilities? On top of this, do you have the ability to make false accusations of rape or child abuse in order to help you gain custody? Is it possible for you to deprive your child of his or her other parent in violation of court orders without serious consequences?

13.a If you hit or slap a person – or even knock someone’s tooth out throwing your Aunt Selma’s Christmas mug at that person – is it much more likely to just be viewed as cute, understandable or not a problem? Are there nearly zero consequences for your violence?

13.b If you are ever physically, emotionally, or sexually abused by in any way, are there dozens upon dozens of organizations that are specifically in place to fight for you and house you when necessary? Do you have the ability to have someone taken-away by police if you make a false or exaggerated accusation of abuse?

14.a Do you statistically live much longer – possibly due to less stress on you with regard to breadwinning, providing protection, being responsible, not having society viewing you as “expendable” or not having society viewing your problems as being unimportant? Can you blame the earlier deaths of the other sex on their stupid behavior or bad genes?

14.b Are you about 20 times less likely to die or get injured in your workplace?

15. Do you have much more money spent on your health concerns in reality (e.g. 5 times as much on breast cancer as on prostate cancer – although they have roughly the same death rates) while you simultaneously claim that more care has to be taken for your needs?

16. Are you much less likely to be homeless? Is more offered to you by society when you are in this position?

17. Is there far less scorn and pressure on you by society when you are an irresponsible doofball? Are your default rates for payment of child support roughly twice those of the other gender, while you simultaneously complain about the other gender not paying?

18.a Has whining about and hating the other gender actually been made into a course of studies in college- as opposed to the true, neutral, unbiased study of this topic – which is simply anthropology?

18.b Can you tell everyone that your sex is the superior sex without you being called sexist?

18.c Can you ignore the fact that your sex’s traditional gender-roles would not place you into situations where you’d be likely to be forced to do immoral things and then use the results of this as evidence that your sex is morally superior?

19. Do you have full opportunity to pursue you want in life – become a doctor, a lawyer, start a business – while simultaneously using the fact that many of your gender don’t CHOOSE themselves to do these things as an argument to try to gain even more advantages? Do you get affirmative action because many of your gender don’t choose to do these things, and thusly the numbers don’t “come out right”?

20.a Can you manipulate the other gender with sex in some cases to get what you want? Can you pretend like you don’t even know what anyone is talking about when confronted on this?

20.b Can you use your sex appeal to get-ahead on the job? Can you knowingly dress provocatively but act shocked if someone treats you provocatively?

20.c Do you also have the ability to accuse people of sexual harrassment for any reason, factual or not? Do you make up the definition of ‘sexual harrassment’, and can this definition change depending on the person and whether you like them or not?

21. If you take a job that is traditionally taken by those of the opposite sex, will you be thought of as a brave pioneer by many? Will no one call your sexual orientation into question?

22.a Can you complain that the clothes, shoes hair, grooming items etc. for your sex are more expensive than those of the opposite sex without ever noticing that the varieties, styles and complexity of those products are often greater than those of the opposite sex? Do you have far more retail space devoted to your shopping desires than does the opposite sex?

22.b Can you wear the clothes traditionally associated with the opposite sex without running the risk of getting beat-up or ostracized?

23. Can you manipulate using old notions of men protecting and deferring to women when it comes in handy?

24. Can you effectively manipulate by playing the victim? Do tears help you in getting your way instead of getting you called a wimp?

25. As a child, were you told that you are beautiful, cute and sweet? Could you wear any color you wanted without fear of insult?

26. Can you get sympathy if you don’t work and don’t have children by listing all the household work (hmm … Oprah really does get high ratings, though) while simultaneously being able to bear the cognitive dissonance of calling your sister’s husband who stays home a worthless bum whom she ought to leave?

27. Can you claim that your sex’s work “never ends” while your sex also, on average, watches more television in every time-slot than members of the opposite sex?

28. Can you “mix and match” traditional and progressive roles – finding just the right mix to get what you want? Can you be a “traditional wife” – enjoying the positive features of that (like not having to go-out and work a job in a factory) – while simultaneously being a progressive feminist when THAT gets you advantages? Or having a career while simultaneously using traditional chivalry and male deference to your advantage?

29. Can you constantly say “that’s just typical” and “it doesn’t surprise me a bit” and make lemon faces if you are a parent-in-law? Is near-universal contempt by both genders for your behavior hidden to a much greater extent?

30. Can almost any remark by your partner be construed as verbal abuse if you want sympathy, but the meanest, nastiest, most humiliating things that you can say simply involve “speaking your mind” and “some people just don’t want to hear the truth”?

31. Can you use the fact that gender roles were differentiated long ago – with different advantages/disadvantages for both genders – to try to induce guilt today in people who had absolutely no connection with any of that? Can you say that you have been discriminated against for thousands of years with a straight face when you’re only 20 years old? Can you even make things up about history and no one will really check or dare call you on it?

32. Can you propagate myths and outright lies (“Superbowl/domestic violence hoax”, “rule of thumb”, inflated rape statistics, intentional misconstrual of pay figures and many more) and be given a “pass” – without more rigor being demanded?

33. Can you rationalize your own failures using the concept of the “patriarchy”, and blame the other gender for nearly everything that goes wrong in your life – even with quite contorted explanations that no one would otherwise buy – while failures of the other gender are just … failures?

34. Do you want to be treated like a child when it suits you but as an adult when you get advantages from that? Do you “look the other way” when someone doesn’t require responsibility from you that they certainly would from the other gender?

35. As an infant, would amputating a piece of your genitals be a crime? Would not cutting your genitals be considered a basic human right to which you are entitled?

36. Can you focus heavily on perceived earnings in the workforce – the statistics of which are influenced by people’s choices in reality – while utterly ignoring the inter-family transfer of wealth? Can you completely ignore the fact that one gender picks tougher jobs (garbage collector), works more hours and takes on more responsibility because of more pressure to earn – but the other gender has the same lifestyle and statistically more assets (and not just because of inheritance/earlier age of male at death….). Can you deliberately claim that earnings figures are based on equal pay for equal work? (when you probably full well know that they simply involve all people working more than 35 hours – and don’t take type of job, hours worked over 35/week, danger, responsibility, years in the work force etc. into consideration at all)?

37. Is what used to simply be an irritation for grown-ups many years ago – the self-centered rantings and foot-stompings of spoiled high-school and college brats – now not only embraced by your most progressive movement but almost the cornerstone of it?

38. Can you get irritated about generalizations and stereotypes —- and utterly fail to see the hypocrisy in stereotyping and generalizing about one gender while simultaneously making a career (literally in some cases) whining about your own gender being stereotyped?

39. Can you get irritated about old-fashioned restrictive attitudes towards your sexual behavior while insulting men who engage in the same kind of sexual behavior that you would do in an eyeblink if you could?

40.a Do you reserve the right to blame any cruel, rude, or unrestrainedly angry thing that you do on my “time of month”? Is this true regardless of what time of month it actually is?

40.b Do you reserve the right to get angry and indignant if somebody suggests this to you regardless of how often you say it about yourself?

41. Do you reserve the right to call anyone “sexist” for any reason, based upon your own definition of the term? Is your sexist behavior never noticed?

42. Do you have the privilege of making long lists criticizing the privileges of the opposite sex while everyone pretends to not notice that you have a long list of none-too insignificant privileges of your own?

43. Do you have the privilege of blaming your privileges on the opposite sex?

44. Do you have the privilege of dishonestly insisting that you don’t have any privileges?

    Allow me to respond on behalf of the rad feminists:

    Is is any wonder? Patriarchy hurts men, too. (The fact that patriarchy ONLY hurts men is beside the point.)

    Or: Instead of whining about it, you should go out and DO something. Men’s rights activists are not activists at all. (But the first time one of them TRIES to do something, we’ll be there to ridicule them.)

    Or: By its very nature, the privileged class cannot be discriminated against. (Even if it’s not the privileged class.)

    Or: But, but, but — you’re forgetting . . . THE WAGE GAP! (And don’t confuse us with facts that THE WAGE GAP isn’t caused by discrimination.)

    Or: What a sad, pathertic group MRAs are! How do any of these complaints compare with the far more serious civil rights struggles women face? (Chief among them is making sure society pays for women’s birth control.)

    • Zerbu

      lol! Many feminists blindly say that women are discriminated against, but if you were to ask them for any examples, they would either:

      – Remain silent and say nothing.
      – Say vague like “Uhh… why don’t you LOOK AROUND!! Discrimination is EVERYWHERE!”
      – Lie about things such as the wage gap.
      – Give a list of areas in which they claim women are discriminated against, but don’t give examples of how they are discriminated. Many of which it is actually men who are discriminated against. For example: “education” or “the media”, without any specific details.
      – Name something that is not a gender issue, and is often just as likely to happen to men, sometimes even more. Example: Domestic violence, or just violence in general.
      – Describe something that happened to an individual woman, which could very well have nothing to do with gender.
      – Name something that is due to choice and not discrimination. Example: Saying that women take up a minority in a certain work field even though that is due to choices.

      • Renly

        Oh, but asking for evidence is sexism! Know your privilege, you silly MRA, you!

        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Djs_vZGq_dU

        “Alright, enlighten me! Show me proof!”, she says as she mocks someone who would dare ask for evidence without just dining on the feminist feast of lies.

        I thought this was a pretty good comment:

        “Due to innate differences, men and women will have different results in the exact same environments. “Privilege denying”? Feminists are reality-denying.”

  • Steve_85

    SNAP!

  • Rper1959

    The current abysmal performance of our first female PM Julia Gillard has come in for lots of critisim in the media, jump in the feminists and white knights (Green’s leader Bod Brown) claiming the media is being “sexist” and giving her a harsher critisim because she is female, thats right nothing to do with poor policies, poor performance and incompetent leadership, back off because she’s a woman and everyone knows “ya don’t criticise a women”

  • Ben

    That was hard core, Paul! I can’t decide which entry is my favorite. What an anti-feminist blitzkrieg! If I slide this under the door of SAS and put it on a few choice walls, it will knock the misandric mortar aloose from the foundation around here!

    Well done.

  • DruidV

    8. Will you not be called an unemployed loser if you decide to be a homemaker?

    This.

    You would think that in this day and age blah blah blah, but the fact is, almost everyone I know, both male and female alike with the exception of my wife and son, feel this way about me and my decision to be there to raise him. They miss no chance to remind me of my “loserdom”, either. This is most often coming from my/my wife’s mother and my older sisters, but just about everyone else I know has also piled on to some extent or another.
    Out of all of the other BS mindfuckery on this list, this is my main issue. I know full well that #8 might seem pretty insignificant to many of you other Men, who are deprived of this honor and priveledge, being forced to work just to survive and I know you have bigger fish to fry, per se’, but this is what I have been dealing with for many moons now. It is no less important than any of the other items on this list…
    In spite of all the societal pooh poohing though, I’m pretty damn proud of my choices, of my role as husband father and yes Goddammnit, Homemaker!.
    I’m also pretty damn good at it too.

    My wife is all too aware of how much she completely depends on me to “keep the homefires burning” and she never misses an opportunity to let me know how much more difficult her life would be without me and how much she both loves and apprecites me and my efforts. There are no barking demands and usual femithink BS coming from her. She gets it and she is a very rare flower indeed.

    I am living proof that #8 can in fact be smashed to pieces, rendered inefective as a shaming tool, and obliterated, over time and with a lot of patience and resolve.

    • OneHundredPercentCotton

      This one is bogus for women as well.

      There is most certainly a stigma against any able bodied adult not paying homage to the Tax God, male or female.

      No exceptions.

    • http://thedamnedoldeman.com TDOM

      Several years ago I left my good paying job (which was slowly killing me) to return to school and become a chef. This took only about a year and a half. Culinary school was a 35 hour per week endeavor not counting homework assignments. I also worked through a temp service 1-2 days per week. Every woman in my wife’s family (one exception) suggested she leave me. Those are the same pigs who line up for whatever dish I’ve prepared for the family pot luck get-togethers.

      TDOM

      • Rper1959

        Naturally TDOM you should have stayed in the higher paid job and worked yourself to death , your a man it’s expected of you! still if you decide to be a lazy no good, poorly paid cook ( and you should not have any choice in the matter , choice is a woman’s prerogative) , then of course women with enjoy your offerings, if he cant provide a fat pay check , we can at least enjoy what little the hopeless sponger does provide

    • http://equalitythroughtruth.blogspot.com/ Jean Valjean

      I’m with you brother. I think being a househusband would be freakin’ awesome.

      There are a few men who do this work but in every case I’ve seen the decision was made AFTER they got married. He first had to prove he could be a breadwinner and then he was asked to give that up so SHE could work on her career.

      Just try and go on a date and tell a woman you want to be a househusband. She’ll be gone so fast it will make your head spin.

      • Daniel Kulkarni

        Unfortunately, if you have children with a woman and become a househusband, the chances of having access to your kids are no better than the normal [abysmal] rate, and with no job for the time being, you’re left holding a flaccid dick… technically speaking.

  • OneHundredPercentCotton

    Was there mention of “Ladies Night”?

    Urinals.

    Seriously, urinals.

    That’s about all I can come up with for male priviledge.

    Now, personally,I don’t feel inclined to take away anyone’s job or higher education opportunities unfairly, or lie about DV or rape to eliminate competition, or try to keep my kids from having a father just because, almost without exception, men have twice as many toilet options when arguably it SHOULD be the other way around …

    … but daaaa-umm!

    • Just1X

      You would not believe the amount of guilt that us guys here feel about that…my heart tears a little everytime I think of it

      • OneHundredPercentCotton

        I’m well aquainted with male guilt in this regard. My husband can walk directly in a restroom door while I’m standing in a line three blocks back with dozens of kids doing a desperate potty dance while their mothers reagrd it as a “teaching moment” for how to potty in a public facility, and WITHOUT FAIL ask ” Whadidja fall in”? ” What the f&^# took so long”? “Was it a good book”?

        Love that sense of humor, babe.

        I’ve encountered a women’s urinal only once in my life and times. They don’t come with any instructions or tips on how to use them successfully. I ended up puddling myself like a two year old, and they still require stalls since women have to get half undressed to use them.

        http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=female+urinals&view=detail&id=8432E1B332080E43773E541C23D7CF8496B9EF8F&first=31&FORM=IDFRIR

      • OneHundredPercentCotton

        I know all about that guilt. Every time my husband walks directly into the men’s room without waiting while I’m in line three blocks long and a couple of desparate moms with little kids doing a potty dance directly behind me, he never fails to show his guilt.

        “Whaa took so long, didja fall in?” “Was it a good book”? “Go get me another beer since you’re up. I finished two while you were gone”

    • dalriada

      The toilet privilege for men is by no means universal. Most of my jobs have been in male dominated workplaces, and yet the few women have had equal toilet facilities. I’ve had to use the ‘Ladies’ a couple of times, when the Men’s toilets were blocked. With a woman standing guard outside of course. What a revelation! They had plenty of toilet paper, soap, were kept spotlessly clean, and even had perfume wafting into the air. I even saw a small vase of flowers on one occasion! In the men’s, you were lucky to have toilet paper to wipe your arse!

      • OneHundredPercentCotton

        Technically speaking, it’s more an Act Of God that restrooms used by a few women are going to be cleaner and have more TP than a restroom used by 100 men. Men always leave tell-tale tinkle sprinkles on the floor in front of the toilet. You can always tell when there’s been a male visitor.

        The same women who tape flowers to their pens so you don’t steal them are the same ones who put flowers and perfume in work place restrooms. It’s not management. Swear to God.

        One of my most profound moments in life came when the women’s restroom was closed for repairs and the half-dozen of us women were rounded up and herded to use the men’s room at scheduled times.

        I was the only women in the entire group that didn’t have something ghastly written about her on the bathroom walls. I mean awwwwwwful stuff.

  • Raven01

    I’ll add this to this,
    http://www.coeffic.demon.co.uk/descrim.htm
    resource on real discrimination.
    “Date-rape allegations cases have surged. Very often these allegations have turned out to be completely false. A study conducted by the FBI with subjects already in jail for rape used DNA findings to show that 30% of the convicted men were innocent according to the DNA evidence [Newsweek 11-Jan-93]” That may be of interest to Mr. Harlan.
    I have not located the original source but a corroborating use of the same quote@:
    http://www.justodians.org/UnderstandingJudicialCorruption.htm
    For the record that is 30% of CONVICTED men are beyond a doubt INNOCENT. Not maybe they did it, maybe they didn`t. Once cases with no DNA evidence available are added in it would be very reasonable to assume that likewise 30% of the remaining 70% are also innocent (for an additional 21% of CONVICTED rapists being railroaded men).
    That means 51% of all criminal convictions are very likely pure unadulterated bullshit (30% proven beyond a shadow of a doubt so by DNA evidence).
    And, still we do not name the accuser, so she is free to extort money and revenge against more unsuspecting men.

  • http://www.avoiceformen.com Dr. F

    Great list.

    What about…

    45. Can you walk out of a nightclub drunk as a skunk wearing only a spittle of glitter on your nipples and cocktail umbrella on your muff while shrieking, “Take back the night.” ?

    46. Can you ponce about in a new Jag with a very wide number plate that says,
    “IDRIVEANDPARKHOWIFUCKINGWANT” ?

    47. Can you give your husband the silent treatment and then go out on a wimmin’s march with a megaphone shouting “Our voices will be heard!” ?

    48. Have you carved onto the TV remote the words,”MINE”. ?

    49. Do you occasionally give smiles, sex, conversation, warm contact and concern just as farmers drop bales of hay to starving cattle in a drought ?

    50. If you find the toilet seat up do you glue it down and then walk about for years with both eyebrows making a large ‘V’ and a mouth like a piss-hole in the snow ?

    Forgive me lol.. I added those for a laugh and in no way wish to detract from the gravity of the real list.

    However, I’ll copy this list and secretly add my addendum and see if it goes unnoticed after dropping thousands of them from the town’s crop duster.

    • DruidV

      I actually thought these were serious addendums, Dr. F and now you are telling me they aren’t legit, to some extent?

      I too was gonna add a few like these, but at this point it really is a dog pile, humorous items or no.

      It really does write itself.

    I get the “you shouldn’t generalize” alot.
    It’s being used in place of “you shouldn’t stereotype”, to shut people up that question political correctness.

    • http://www.avoiceformen.com Dr. F

      Yes, I get the, “That’s a generalisation” crap too.

      What the hell is it with the damned generalisations ?

      It tends to be that:

      Grass is green, microscopes are owned by people who are curious about stuff, bookworms are likely to be introverted, sheep are white, kindergarten teachers like kids, toadstools resemble mushrooms, clouds are fluffy, a heroin addict doesn’t wear a tutu, sugar is in fruit juice, MacDonalds makes a profit on a street, metal is conductive, grapes have stones, beer has more than 1 percent alcohol in it’s content, goats don’t fall over when you say “BOO”, car license plates with small numbers on them are in possession of the wealthy, the average person is not colour blind, feminists hijack conversations loudly spouting data skewed by poor collation and cherry picked data… whoops.

      Pardon, that slipped out.

      I guess that as I generally think the average feminist is a deceitful duplicitous creature with the insight and empathy of a crate of burnt rubber, moments like this will rear it’s ugly head.

      Generally.

  • Dazza

    This article is amazing and instantly one of my favourites.

    A concise 44 point checklist which blows the feminist landscape to smithereens.

    This should be shown to anyone who tries to perpetuate the myth that women are disadvantaged and men have all the power.

    I am loving this red pill diet.

    Great article Paul.

      Lies can be so powerful. Told often enough, and with enough conviction, even the most absurd notions can become believable to the obtuse.

    45. Do you feel a right to complain when men fail to live up to your expectations but then cry “slut shaming” when you fail to live up to other’s expectations?

    46. Can you demand affirmative action, quotas, preferential hiring, promotion, or college admittance, as well as a host of female only programs and scholarships/training programs and then when you succeed claim you defied the odds or that you are just superior to the opposite sex?

    46b. If after receiving all those preferential treatments based on your sex, can you now complain that there are no good men because they fail to rise through all the unfair competition and obtain enough status to satisfy your need for hypergamy?

    47. Can you blame sexism for when you fail to succeed at anything in life while calling men losers when they fail?

    47b. Then after doing this be completely oblivious to the sexist double standard?

    48. Can you demand equal wages with men but then make it a requirement that any man who wants to date you make more money than you?

    49. Can you repeatedly insist that your gender is just as good or superior than the other gender? Then when you enter a profession where you can’t hack it demand that they lower the standards so you can be employed? Then after lowering the standards insist that you be paid equally with those employees who had to work harder, meet higher standards, and take more risks?

    49b. When working in a profession alongside the opposite sex do you claim to be working twice as hard to get ahead when in reality you are only half as strong or competent at the job or take twice as much time off from work to pursue other things?

    50. Do you feel that no one should be able to force you to become a parent while simultaneously and reserving the right to unilaterally force the opposite sex to become a parent?

    50b. Do you believe that when a man reproduces with a woman against her will he is a rapist but when a woman reproduces with a man against his will she is a “single mom”?

    51. Do you believe that your gender entitles you to be free from all violence?

    51b. Do you condemn the opposite sex for committing all the violence in the world while occasionally demanding the opposite sex commit violence on your behalf or in your defense?

    51c. Do you believe that your unwillingness to commit violence makes you superior to the opposite sex but their unwillingness to commit violence makes them weak or a loser?

    52. Are you secretly aroused by pornography which includes acts of rape and sexual harassment but demand draconian punishments for men who misread your signals in real life?

    53. Do you feel that child support, alimony, and property settlements are good ideas when you are the beneficiary but when you are the one paying them think they are sexist, draconian, and unfair?

    54. Do you feel it is your right to make elaborate conditions and expectations of the opposite sex but then cry “oppression” or sexism when the opposite sex does it to you?

    55. Do you expect the opposite sex to agree to obligations to you that they cannot get out of or are enforced by laws but insist that any obligation you offer in return be optional?

    I can do this all night.

      Jean,

      Doesn’t it begin to cause headaches, after a while?

      I mean seriously, right? The sheer, retarded convolution of thought and utter (or udder, typ) delusion involved with dreaming up these ridiculous chameleon like, capricious concepts and nebulous, amorphous and always changing rules, rewards and panalties (for Males only, of course), is enough to make the average Man dizzy, even queasy, when attempting to list them.

      I salute you, sir.

      • http://equalitythroughtruth.blogspot.com/ Jean Valjean

        It used to back when I thought women were equal to men. I realize though that women are not equal. At least not equal in reason and logic. The only crazy thing I’ve ever done in regards to women was think they believed in fair play and actual equality. When you buy into the claim that women want equality then all these double standards (should you choose to notice them) can drive you crazy. Most men (manginas) lack the intellectual fortitude to wade through the cognitive dissonance and realize the truth.

        Deep down every women expects to be privileged. The amount of privilege is directly related to their own perceived mate value. Mate value is the currency with which women buy their man slaves. And most men never realize they’ve been bought and sold.

        However, even when a woman is unattractive, fat, has a bunch of bratty bastards, dead broke, crap credit, she still thinks she’s entitled to marry a prince charming and be unconditionally loved and financially supported.

        The moment I stopped thinking a woman loved a man as much as a man loved a woman, the moment I realized that the only “ethic” is whatever privileges her best is the moment these double standards all make sense.

        I have no expectation that any woman will ever see me as a human being. I have no expectation that any woman will ever value me or like me or “love” me unless she sees some utility in doing so. Unless their is a payday down the road or a means to an end no women will bother with any man.

        Every relationship I’ve ever seen between a man and a woman (save for when the woman is rich and dating a younger man) involves a man making payments to a woman.

        Think about that. A woman can’t be in love with a man unless he’s making payments of some sort. The moment he “fails” to keep her in the lifestyle she has grown accustomed to is the moment when her “love” for him starts to disappear. It doesn’t end right away, but over the months and years that follow she starts looking for reasons to explain why she feels the way she feels. First it’s the feeling that he’s no good, then she starts finding faults and character flaws that justify her feelings.

        An example is a neurosurgeon friend of mine. He was successful and his wife loved him. Then he wanted to go back to school and become a psychiatrist and he asked his wife and she said that was fine. But by the time he graduated and started his practice she was divorcing him. Why? Because he couldn’t keep her in the lifestyle she was accustomed to. Women marry doctors because they want security and the moment his income dropped she no longer had that security and so she started looking for reasons to justify why she wanted a divorce.

        After filing for divorce and saying all kinds of crap about him her father died. They both went to the funeral and then they went home but he didn’t express his condolences to her in a way she felt was sufficient.

        So what does she do? She tells his daughter that that was the reason she was divorcing him, because she could never be with a man who could be so cold.

        That cunt was divorcing him, making accusations against him, and she still expects him to give her love, validation, and emotional support?

        But that’s how these cunts think. We are nothing but resources to be exploited and discarded. If we fail at anything, read her mind wrong, or even if we do everything right, women will leave if they think they can get a better deal by doing so.

        No one who ever defines women speaks of honesty, nobility, or honor. In fact, no one ever puts conditions on what it means to be a “real” woman or a “good” woman.

        They can all go fuck themselves.

      Excellent additions. I’m getting a Judge Napolitano vibe from these lists. :)

    • VISCVAB

      In your expansion on this amazing list 49 and 49b are possibly the ones that bother me the most. I’m a young, intelligent, strong young man and I work in an almost exclusively female environment at a retail store. They have NO idea how incredibly lucky they are due to their sex. I am required to work FAR harder than them in all respects even at THEIR respective jobs. You would think, or at least I did at one point that doing all of this extra work would command SOME type of reverence or respect from your female coworkers, but all it has earned me is scorn. I don’t want to go into details as I am preaching to the choir, but this is a great source of sadness for me. I am used as some utility, stripped of my humanity, and constantly humiliated by my coworkers for not reaching their ever expanding view of what my “job should be.” I am the ONLY person hired with such a general job description as to make my job everyone else’s and my own! Thank you Jean for giving me an opportunity to rant! And thank you AVfM for existing because even knowing there is a community of like-minded individuals out there is extremely comforting as I am no longer alone.

    Hmm. .

    How about. . 56a. Do you call the opposite sex “angry,” “sensitive,” “immature,” when you have said or done something uncalled for and the opposite sex calls you on it?
    56b. Do you, when you know you’re guilty and under fire, run to another member of the opposite sex in hopes that you can coerce the other member to defend you through fists or intimidation towards the previous person with whom you’ve committed said uncalled behavior?

  • gingerbred

    57. Do you take pride in harassing the opposite sex because you know that legally the opposite sex cannot retaliate against you through physical or verbal defense?

  • gingerbred

    58a. When in the process of consuming a product, do you manipulate the opposite sex, through charm and flattery and sob stories of victimhood and/or martyrdom, into getting you a better deal on said product?

    58b. If the opposite sex is onto your manipulative game of coercion for a discount of product and does not buy into your manipulation, do you label the opposite sex a “jerk,” or “unfriendly,” or “un-gentleman like,” or simply “not very nice,” as a shaming and defaming tactic in order for the opposite sex to cave in and let you get what you want at his expense?

    58c. After opposite sex gives in and allows you to have your way, do you immediate discard your negative defamation of their character by calling them “sweet,” “a gentleman,” “a prince,” etc?

    Male Privilege.

    The first time I truly understood just how much women enjoyed this myth was a seminal moment for me. It was 1995. I was at a conference in the tropics during the height of summer. All the men were required to wear suits and ties – torture. The women flounced around comfortably in lightweight summer frocks and sandals – underwear optional.

    During a break, an American twenty-something woman sourly opined to no-one in particular, “It’s so unfair. Women have to spend hours deciding what to wear before going to these things. You men just have to put on suits.” I thought she was joking, but her sanctimonious scowl made it clear she was fair dinkum. All of the women made noises of agreement.

    Here were more than a dozen supposedly intelligent western women seriously peeved at being surrounded by men enjoying their privilege to…sweat profusely. The women were energized by the sudden realization that they had something new to moan about. Even in a situation where they had a clear advantage, women found a way to victimize themselves. They were exhilarated, they glowed.

    I confronted her in my inarticulate Australian manner (exposure to superbly written material available on sites like AVFM has refined me somewhat). I told her that was a stupid thing to say and pointed out that the women could choose what to wear, whereas we couldn’t. She muttered something about men not being capable of understanding women. I was old enough by then to realise that, actually, I understood them plenty.

    Later, a red-headed Tasmanian called Melanie sidled up to me and said that she could see her point, but also understood mine – my first NAWALT! As a result of this experience, I cannot hear the term ‘male privilege’ without thinking of those princesses lounging around being aggrieved about ‘issues’ as flimsy as their attire.

    Great article.

    • Darryl X

      Your first obvious misunderstanding of the situation is “supposedly intelligent western women”. The words “intelligent” and “women” should never appear in the same sentence. They really shouldn’t even appear in the same paragraph, on the same page or in the same book.

      • http://equalitythroughtruth.blogspot.com/ Jean Valjean

        Women are intelligent. It’s a mistake to think they aren’t. Plenty of men are paying through the nose to women they thought weren’t very bright.

        Now words like “honorable”, “selfless”, “ethical”, and “fair” are words that don’t belong in the same sentence with “woman” unless they are modified by the word “not”.

        • Ray Mitchell

          Plenty of women are smart and fair. Not all of them, certainly not enough of them, but it’s the same with men. Just because women are privileged doesn’t mean they in general are bad. Think of some of the more prominent female MRAs – they all are plenty fair and ethical. Making generalizations like this will only hurt our cause and make people think we all hate women.

    LOL. And they all could have decided to wear a suit everyday and confined themselves to the same and only choice that men have.

    The timing of this article couldn’t possibly be better, Dr. Elam. Here’s my addition:

    60. Are you, by virtue of your gender, granted the right and ability to destroy the job, livelihood, and/or entire social life of members of the opposite gender, by virtue of simple dislike or unfounded suspicion, for any reason or no reason on your part?

    61. Will police, government officials, and a wide variety of other self-described “concerned” individuals automatically believe and agree with your claimed reasons for dislike or suspicion of said opposite-gendered person, because their own jobs, livelihoods, social lives, etc., can be made to instantly disappear if they choose not to automatically agree with you, regardless of whether your claims are reasonable, plausible, or even within the realm of physical possibility?

    • Darryl X

      You forgot –

      62a. Do you manipulate others with the public spectacle of your chronic victimhood to satisfy your addiction to power and control by portraying the success of others based upon their hard work and sacrifice as a threat to you even if it means forfeiting the benefits of their labor to yourself and others?

      62b. Do you manipulate others with the public spectacle of your chronic victimhood to satisfy your addiction to power and control by portraying the success of others based upon their hard work and sacrifice as a threat to you but are unwilling to give up the benefits of their labor for yourself?

      62c. Do you do both 62a and 62b and fail to understand that both are completely irrational by themselves but because they are mutually exclusive, expecting both is so far off the scale or contiuum of insanity that you can’t even be measured by that standard anymore?

    “35. As an infant, would amputating a piece of your genitals be a crime? Would not cutting your genitals be considered a basic human right to which you are entitled”

    And this is one that pisses me off.
    All of the 10,000 logical arguments that I could make against it from comparing it to FGM, to showing them videos of it being performed and the baby’s writhing in pain, to the fact that there are no medical reasons for it, to the fact that babies have been disfigured or died from it, to the fact that it’s being done to make face cream…

    Is trumped by “But uncut penises are gross-looking!”

    • http://www.avoiceformen.com Dr. F

      You know something Muk and I’ll tell you this.

      When I worked as an orderly in a women’s hospital many years before I was aware of what I now know, I saw this “procedure” time and time again.

      Even then it hurt just to be there.

      Looking at these tiny kids having their tails lopped off and screaming like a Banshee had me knowing something was not right, and a deep sense of mistrust in “all things that must be” gelled forever.

      I asked about it once to a doctor and he said, “No anesthesia needed as they won’t remember.”

      With this thinking you can in theory, do terrible things for fun and profit and be home scot free because you have a serum that scrubs all memory of the event.

      Does wielding this “forget serum” not only make you immune from accountability when you sleep at night, but also buffer you from empathy doing the same crime the next day ?

      Something is rotten in the state of play here, and bugger the rules that say “never wake a sleepwalker”.

        I wrote about this before and it pisses me off too. The good news, for my own son, if not myself, is that I was able to keep the butchers off of his penis. I caught Hell from all sides, even my wife (who has since reconsidered and readjusted many of her old thought processes). I stuck to my guns and am happy to report that there were no “scary” or “unhealthy” after affects from not cutting off the end of his genitals, of course.

        He is perfectly healthy and happy and he too has NO memory of his junk being mutillated, but for the RIGHT reasons.

    At a very young age, I can recall deeply sensing somehow that it was advantageous to be female in this world. Even before kindergarten, I could notice a difference in the way girls and women were treated, and I was envious of them. It looked so easy to be a girl, and I would have gladly joined their ranks in a heartbeat. I could see even then that if a little girl and a boy had a fight, it was almost always the girl who was assumed to be innocent and in the right. Also, though I wouldn’t say my mother was abusive to my father, I could always see a sort of moral high ground my mother was always given in any disagreement, and even to this day I can see no logical basis for this other than her gender.

    As I got older, I was gradually sold the idea by society, that females were somehow at a great disadvantage to males, and that I was really quite lucky to have been born what I am. I didn’t question it. I presumed that in my early childhood I had somehow made some innocent logical fallacy by not immediately recognizing the advantage males had. Only recently am I starting to realize that I may have understood something in my childhood innocence that I had long forgotten.

    What disadvantage do females really have, anyway? Weaker bodies? Having to bear children? A menstrual cycle? Not being able to urinate standing up? Or any of the societal disadvantages that feminists and almost all of society now unquestioningly accepts females have? I would gladly take on all of these minor inconveniences to be able to take advantage of just a few items in the checklist above.

    For the record, I’m not considering sexual reassignment surgery any time soon. ;) I’d rather keep my junk, thank you – I still like to enjoy sex with the advantaged sex on occasion. But with society the way it currently is, if I died and was given a choice which gender to be reborn as, I would choose female in a heartbeat. Life would be so easy…

    • Rad

      When I was in 5th grade I went into the guys bathroom during lunch hour to do my business. As I rounded the corner to the urinals I saw a very tall person with curly orange hair. It was one of the lunch ladies, doing her business whilst standing up.

      After I ignored the thought of “What is a girl doing in the guys bathroom?” I thought, “Oh, I didn’t know it could work that way.”.

      She remarked, “It’s easier that way,”. The guys toilets were much closer to my classroom than the woman’s toilets. She didn’t want to stray too far from the classroom since it was her responsibility to watch us.

      So in conclusion, women are lying about the ability to piss while standing up. The learning curve is just higher.

      That or my lunch lady was a transvestite. Well, whatever, it didn’t occur to me to ask for the proof.

      inb4 “Well, if a man had used the girls bathroom…” comparison.

      • tallwheel

        Yep. I’ve heard that it’s quite possible, and it just takes practice, and a willingness to touch parts most females aren’t necessarily used to touching when doing their business. I know for fact there are websites out there that will explain to you ladies how to accomplish this.
        (I confess I googled it once many years ago out of curiosity. I don’t have much use for this info, other than to inform the advantaged sex that they have this option. Of course they would never listen to me because, after all, what right do I have to tell a woman how to use her parts?)

      Thank you for speaking this Tallwheel, it is exactly what has been on my mind lately. Under the injury of so much lifelong filthy indoctrination with the opposite of the truth, it is cathartic just to speak the words- females really do have it better, way fucking better. Way way way fucking better. Off the scales better. And we are bullshitted into the opposite of the truth. It’s almost to ludicrous to process. And they’ve known it all along. Manipulated man, indeed.

    I wrote up a female privilege checklist as well as a rebuttal to a male privilege checklist back in 2009. It’s still on an old blog of mine.

    There are actually 97 items on my female privilege checklist.

    http://louisvillemojo.com/blogs/Louisville_blogs/77766/Female_Privilege_Checklist_Part_2

    This one is the first of 4 blog entries where I counter some twat’s “male privilege checklist”. It’s pretty good I think.

    http://louisvillemojo.com/blogs/Louisville_blogs/77733/Male_Privilege_Checklist

  • http://equalitythroughtruth.blogspot.com/ Jean Valjean

    1. From an early age the opposite sex will be instructed never to hit me but I may not be given the same instructions. However, should I strike males I can expect not to be hit back and any social penalties that occur from my actions will actually fall on the male.

    2. If I’m not smart, but pretty, I can marry and achieve the social and financial level of my husband without ever working.

    3. I can produce offspring. A status which grants me an “essential” status in our species that men can never have and which can never be taken away from me even in old age.

    4. Regardless of my mate value society has organized fertility clinics and social welfare programs that will allow me to have children and provide for them should I choose to reproduce without a mate or marriage.

    5. I not only have the more valuable and sought after sexual identity, but I also have complete control over my reproductive choice and in many ways over the reproductive choice of the opposite sex.

    6. At any time I can abandon my parental responsibilities with little or no social stigma and hand the child over to the state or abort the pregnancy. A male could never relieve himself of this burden unless I allow him to.

    7. I am granted all the rights of a democracy without any of the burdens of military service.

    8. At age 18 I lose the protective status of the child but retain the protective status of the female. Boys at age 18 lose the protected status of the child and become targets if they fail to gain status after that point.

    9. When I marry a man with status I can take his name and become whoever he has spent years becoming. I need not do anything special to be worthy of receiving the reputation he has built. However, if I wish to keep my own name I can do so. Should my husband feel the sting of this insult I can simply call him a sexist for it.

    10. People will help me more when I’m in need and I will receive no social penalty or stigma for it.

    11. When I’m on a date things will be paid for me.

    12. When I search for employment I can choose jobs which I think are fulfilling without concern of whether they provide a “family” wage.

    13. I can discriminate against the opposite sex ruthlessly without social penalty.

    14. If I marry and quit my job and enjoy a leisurely life with light housework and then later divorce I will be given half of the marital assets.

    15. If I commit a crime and am convicted I will get a sentencing “discount” because of my gender. If I am very pretty it will increase my discount.

    16. If I am a partner in crime with a man I will likely be charged with lesser crimes even though I committed the same crimes even if I was the ringleader.

    17. I have the option to be outraged if my husband asks me if my behavior is due to PMS and later on use PMS as a successful legal defense for murdering that same husband.

    18. At age 18 I will not be forced to register for Selective Service and will not be penalized for failing to do so.

    19. At a time of war I will never be drafted and ripped from my employment, home, and family and forced to become a military slave.

    20. My feelings are more important than men’s lives. Every precaution will be made to protect me from harassment at work. However, males will make up nearly %100 of workplace fatalities.

    21. My gender controls 80% of domestic spending. We get to spend our money if we have any and we get to spend men’s money.

    22. The majority of luxury apparel is designed, marketed to, and consumed by women.

    23. Seven times as much jewelry will be purchased by or for me than by or for men.

    24. I have a department of women’s health whereas men have no such department.

    25. My gender enjoys more government spending on health than males do.

    26. My gender consumes the lioness’ share of entitlement programs while men contribute the lion’s share of taxes.

    27. If I rape or molest a child I can expect lighter treatment in court and afterwards receive less social stigma. What’s more, should I become pregnant, I can sue my victim for child support when he finally turns 18.

    28. When I divorce my husband I will be guaranteed custody of my children unless I am deemed to be unfit. Even if my husband is “Parent of the Year” 10 years running it is unlikely he will get custody over me even if I am a mediocre parent.

    29. When I divorce I can use false accusations of domestic violence, sexual molestation of the children or abuse of the children to gain advantage during court proceedings. If I am found out to be a liar I can expect to get away with it.

    30. If a man calls me a slut it will probably hurt his reputation more than it hurts mine, but at any rate the damage will be small and localized. However, if I call him a child molester or claim that he raped me I can destroy him completely and the damage may be nationwide.

    31. If I fail at my career I can blame the male dominated society.

    32. I may have the luxury of staying home and being a housewife but if my sister’s husband does the same thing I’m likely to call him a deadbeat loser and tell her to leave him.

    33. If I “choose” to join the military; the best military occupations providing the most lucrative civilian training will be reserved for me. I will be kept away from the fighting as much as possible to the point that I will be thirty times less likely to be killed in a war zone than my male counterparts. I will be given equal pay for less risk. I will never have to consider the fact that by joining the military and getting a plumb assignment I automatically forced a male out of that position and into a combat role that may cost him his life.

    34. If a male soldier injures himself before a deployment he can be arrested and court marshaled for it. If I deliberately get pregnant before a deployment or even during a deployment I will be reassigned and or taken out of a war zone and I will receive no penalty for it.

    35. My gender watches more television in every hour of every day than any other group. This along with the fact that women control %80 of domestic spending means that most television shows and advertisement are designed to appeal to me.

    36. I can wear masculine clothing if it pleases me however men cannot wear feminine clothing without social penalty.

    37. Not only is there a wealth of clothing choices designed for me but it is likely that I will be able to afford or have them provided for me.

    38. I can claim that a wage gap exists and that it is the fault of sexism while simultaneously seeking employment without considering income as a priority. I will probably choose my job based on satisfaction, flexibility of hours, and working conditions and then expect to make as much as the males working nights, out in the rain and cold or working overtime.

    39. I can be bigoted or sexist against males without social penalty.

    40. If I make a false claim of rape against a male in an act of revenge or in order to cover up my own scandalous behavior I may well succeed at both and he may spend years in prison. If I am found out it is unlikely I will be charged, convicted, or serve any time at all.

    41. If I abuse my husband and physically assault him and the police arrive it is almost guaranteed he will go to jail.

    42. If I am in an abusive relationship there are a multitude of social organizations to help me get away from him. There are few for men in the same position even though women initiate the majority of DV and even though men are hospitalized %30 of the time.

      Jean, this work is really, really good.

      17. I have the option to be outraged if my husband asks me if my behavior is due to PMS and later on use PMS as a successful legal defense for murdering that same husband.

      It’s enough to give you rabies. Modern females and chivalrous males, accomplices in feminist treachery, are fucking disgusting.

    Female Privilege Checklist Part 2

    43. In the event of a natural disaster or other emergency that requires evacuation I can expect to be evacuated before males. This includes male doctors, humanitarians, politicians, captains of industry, billionaires, and religious leaders. I will receive no social penalty if all of those people died because I was evacuated first. However, should they manage to get evacuated before women and those women died they will all suffer a social penalty.

    44. If someone is attacking a person on the street I have no obligation to assist them and I will receive no social penalty if I do nothing.

    45. If someone is harming my children and I run away and ask someone else to help I will receive no social penalty for my cowardice.

    46. I’m immune to cognitive dissonance.

    47. I may denounce the concept of a dowry, however, I still expect a man to give me an engagement ring when he asks me to marry him.

    48. I expect a man to ask me to marry me and suffer the potential risk of rejection.

    49. If I lie it’s because I’m a victim of a male dominated society forced into difficult circumstances and not because I’m a bad person.

    50. If my boyfriend sabotages a condom he can pay me child support for the next 20 years. If I secretly don’t take my birth control my boyfriend can pay me child support for the next 20 years.

    51. If I’m uncomfortable exercising around men I can demand a female only gym be made for women. If any male only gyms exist I can demand membership under threat of lawsuit.

    52. If my female only gym at the university decides to close early for safety reasons I can scream sexism and force them to keep it open as long as the main gym.

    53. If I succeed at keeping the female gym open and I leave late at night and I don’t feel safe I can demand that the university spend hundreds of thousands of dollars for more lighting and police presence.

    54. If after getting new lighting and police protection I decide I don’t want to go to the gym anymore well that’s just my prerogative.

    55. I’m likely to believe that if a woman is intoxicated she is not capable of giving consent and if sex occurs it is rape. However, if her male partner is also intoxicated he is capable of consenting.

    56. If a man is promoted over me at work I have a right to suspect sexism even though I also believe that under adverse circumstances men are more capable than women of making good decisions. (see #55)

    57. I can cry and get my husband to do something for me that he might not have done otherwise.

    58. I expect people (especially men) to be sensitive to my feelings.

    59. I can deny a man’s feelings or disregard them or ridicule him for having them without social penalty.

    60. If I lose my job it’s because of sexism or the economy. If a man loses his job it’s because he’s a loser.

    61. If I go to a club or bar with my girlfriends and I look my sexy best I have a right to be perturbed when men approach me and hit on me in this public place.

    62. Even though men die more from prostate cancer than women die from breast cancer I can expect that twice as much funding is given for breast cancer. The same will apply to any female specific disease or malady.

    63. If for some reason I do not get custody of my children I will be expected to pay less child support than another man in my exact same position.

    64. If I kidnap my children and I am eventually caught I can successfully defend myself by claiming I was protecting them from my husband–even if my children were given to him to protect them from me.

    65. My gender makes up %53 of the voting population yet when I see more men in political office I will call that sexism.

    66. If I am married with children and I want to stay home with the kids I’m likely to blame my husband for not making enough to allow me to do that.

    67. I think it is my right to work and I am unconcerned if the influx of women into the workforce has reduced overall wages to the point that it’s hard to support a family on just one income, or affirmative action has kept men from being promoted even though they deserved it.

    68. I can get student financial aid without signing up for Selective Service (the Draft).

    69. I can get employment with a federal agency without signing up for Selective Service.

    70. Restrooms for my gender will be cleaner and are more likely to have flowers or other decorations.

    71. If I’m caring for a child restrooms for my gender will more likely have a changing table for my convenience.

    74. If I go to a bar I can expect that members of the opposite sex will purchase drinks for me.

    75. Anytime I find an organization just for men I can denounce it as sexism.

    76. I believe that women should have organizations just for women.

    77. If I meet a man that I like and I give him my phone number and he doesn’t call I have a right to think of him as an asshole.

    78. If I meet a man that I like and I give him my phone number and he calls me I have a right to blow him off or act like I don’t know him.

    79. I believe I have a right to live in an orderly and safe society but I feel no obligation to risk my safety to secure or maintain that society.

    80. I like it when bars and clubs have drinks specials just for women.

    81. I think that organizations that offer any discounts or privileges just for men is a clear sign of sexism.

    82. If I’m white I will live 6 years longer than white males and 14 years longer than black males.

    83. If I’m encouraged to get medical care it’s because I owe it to myself.

    84. When my husband is encouraged to get medical help it’s because he owes to to me and the kids.

    85. If something bad happens to me or just one woman I believe it is an offense against all women.

    86. I believe that if something bad happens to a man it’s because he’s a loser.

    87. I think that alimony is fair when paid to a woman but not fair when paid by a woman.

    88. I’m more likely to believe that women who commit crimes are sick and need treatment or understanding whereas men who commit crimes are evil and should be locked up forever.

    89. I can criticize the opposite sex without social penalty, but woe be to the man who attempts to criticize me or other women.

    90. I can throw a fit and act like a two year old to get what I want without damaging my mate value.

    91. I have the luxury of not being the filter for natural selection.

    92. I can sleep with my boss if I want and afterwards I can sue him for sexual harassment.

    93. I can wear seductive clothing and perfume to attract a man at work but no one will accuse me of sexual harassment.

    94. If I hear a story about Darfur and how men who leave the refugee camps to gather wood are hacked to death to prevent their wives from being raped I am likely to think that is proper but not likely to send money.

    95. If I hear a story about Darfur and how women are leaving the refugee camps to gather wood are being raped I’m likely to be outraged. I’m also likely to wonder why these women’s husbands aren’t protecting them.

    96. If I ever heard these stories about Darfur it is my privilege not to care or even consider that the reason the second story exists is because all the men in the first have already been killed.

    97. It is my right to maintain the belief that men oppress women despite all of the evidence to the contrary.

      “Spectacular” does not even cover it.

      84. When my husband is encouraged to get medical help it’s because he owes to to me and the kids.

      83. If I’m encouraged to get medical care it’s because I owe it to myself.

      Hey #70 is contained in my reply to another post. :) Great list!

  • http://equalitythroughtruth.blogspot.com/ Jean Valjean

    My favorite is 94 through 96.

    94. If I hear a story about Darfur and how men who leave the refugee camps to gather wood are hacked to death to prevent their wives from being raped I am likely to think that is proper but not likely to send money.

    95. If I hear a story about Darfur and how women are leaving the refugee camps to gather wood are being raped I’m likely to be outraged. I’m also likely to wonder why these women’s husbands aren’t protecting them.

    96. If I ever heard these stories about Darfur it is my privilege not to care or even consider that the reason the second story exists is because all the men in the first have already been killed.

    Some of you may remember Darfur and the rapes that occurred there. At first you heard stories of how women were being raped when they gathered firewood so the men were gathering the firewood but being hacked to death with machetes. Eventually you only heard that the women were being raped. Why? Because all the men were hacked to death and there were none left to gather the firewood so their wives wouldn’t get raped.

    Funny how that part never made it into the news. It’s because women’s feelings are always more important than men’s lives.

    Nirvana, this post and the comment board. Hallelujah. A great many thanks to everyone’s contributions to this work-of-art thread.

    Fuck codified x-chromosome racism, double-speak misnomered ‘affirmative action’ for females.

    Men at every level of society, yell loud and proud “NO” at the corrosive bitch.

    Modern females, products of femaleist treachery, are fucking disgusting.

    Feminism, being racism, is acid.

    This should be nailed to every door in America.
    Paul, I would love to print this out and hand it to the next feminist pig or mangina who vomits up that canard of “privilege.”
    With proper credit noted, of course.
    Do I have your permission?

  • kurt

    The point about men being considered immature if they don’t want to marry always amuses me. Feminists have successfully re-designed marriage to focus soley on the needs and wants of women, but then when men decide the odds are so stacked against them that the risks just aren’t worth it, men are called immature.
    What next? Maybe they’ll offer to cut our arms off and then call us immature if we decline to take them up on it.

    • Darryl X

      Women like to refer to men smart enough not to marry as immature because the women are angry at the men for not acquiescing to their manipulation. It’s very psychopathic.

      • Daniel Kulkarni

        I don’t know how any woman expecting to get married to a man can consider herself empathetic in any way whatsoever.

  • RHJunior

    I would rather someone DIRECTLY addressed the claim that comic books are sexist.

    • http://www.avoiceformen.com Dr. F

      RHJunior says:
      [I would rather someone DIRECTLY addressed the claim that comic books are sexist.]

      You would would you ?

      You come here and chunder up a single DIRECTIVE in a single one line post and ?

      Holy crap. Can you not smell the stench of your own self entitlement ?

      Like a wind up monkey with a key up your clacker you run predictably as a rodent on rails – as all feminists do. You demand without any substance at all.

      On this site there are hundreds and hundreds of articles with solid references to studies that reveal the terrible situation one gender is in. Article after article dealing with the realities of prison rape, court orders of unimaginable unfairness, deaths in workplaces, the lies in the media, misandry so pervasive no form of media is known to be without it etc… etc…

      These issues have been and are continuing to be discussed as they damned well should be.

      You touch upon none of them, while at the same time dishonestly try to pinpoint in on some burning issue like sexism in cartoons. (Dishonest in the way any refocusing of a non existent or near non existent issue of extreme unimportance when held against the illumination of the greater issues.)

      Address the claim yourself, for starters, and open up a discussion in the normal and honest way that we do around here.

      So there. I’ve dragged your writhing and grubby deceit out into the light, and now I’ve earned the right to sit back an expect a flurry of debate as it were. (yeah riight)

      In the meantime I expect you to fetch my slippers DIRECTLY !

  • Auntie Pheminizm

    DruidV: I feel yuh, bro. Hats off to you, though. And hang in there. Raising kids trumps raising capital.

    Feminists want women to be comfortable in both worlds while barring men from the traditional female bastion: home. They color the work done there in female tones.

    I say, counter that by viewing what you do as mentoring, butlering, being chef, etc. After all, you don’t have to wear a tutu to dance. Don’t get sucked into thinking any job is innately sex-linked.

    Odd that feminism (which CLAIMS to want freedom and equality for all) is so keen on name-calling when males do traditional female things. Yet they go nuclear when some say women don’t “belong” in certain spheres.

    Whatever men choose to do is “manly.”

    No, I cannot get out of situations by dressing sexy because society doesn’t find me sexy. Thanks for pointing that out.
    And girls who do dress fully as men face just as much ridicule as men who dress like girls.
