[Facebook] Zucked Again

0

Mark’s mad at me because I called for what essentially amounted to male genocide — presumably because I put out the call from what was obviously a parody page.

I tried uploading a screenshot of the full violation order, but it was zuck.exe’d in less than a minute.

For the record, I am not a misandrist, and I offer a heartfelt apology to anyone who has ever received this impression from me. 🙄

[Facebook] Aw, Zucks.

Dear Facebook,

I left a comment which anyone with an IQ above 70 would have immediately been able to recognize as satire.  This was before I realized the full extent of your dedication to equitable hiring.

Please do not run program zuck.exe against me — I assure you, I am not a Republican, and I promise to have better thinks in the future.  #OrangeManBad

“Feminists”

0

Once upon a time the term ‘feminist’ was used to denote anyone (generally a woman) who advocated equal rights and opportunities for men and women.  But Feminism has long since morphed into a full-blown ideology — one that has nothing to do with gender equality.

Calling yourself a feminist because you believe in equal rights between the sexes is like calling yourself a white nationalist because you reject the principles of globalism and happen to be caucasian.

People need to understand this, because when you use their rhetoric, you are effectively licensing their ideas.

FACEBOOK: What Supporting Kavanaugh Was Really About

0

All right, everyone — listen up, because an astonishing number of you don’t seem to understand the overwhelming support behind Brett Kavanaugh, or how the SCOTUS confirmation process even works.

The President can nominate whomever he damn well pleases, and it’s up to the Senate whether or not to confirm.  There isn’t an ideological litmus test, and it doesn’t matter how “mainstream” a nominee is, because the Supreme Court does not exist to represent YOUR interests OR mine.  The only “interests” it represents are those of the United States Constitution.   (Worth noting: Brett Kavanaugh is an utter caricature of Middle America.)

The only relevant concern is whether the nominee is capable of doing the job.

Think he lacks the experience to fill a seat?  Fine.  Think he doesn’t understand the Constitution, or how to properly apply it?  That’s fine too.  Have concerns about the candidate’s ethics, or do you otherwise question whether he can and will remain objective in his rulings?  Then certainly, Senator, you should vote ‘no’.

But please, all of you screaming your heads off about Roe v. Wade — shut the fuck up already.  You don’t actually believe Trump can be pressured into nominating someone who supports abortion; you’re just looking for an excuse to bitch about Trump.

If you had any serious concerns about Kavanaugh’s confirmation, you belonged taking them to your senator — not taking to the streets like savages or whining about it on social media.

(To anyone who contacted their senator’s office and THEN whined: 👍  But I hope they had the good sense to ignore you unless you actually had something constructive to say.)


Secondly:

I’m tired of all the mischaracterizations of Kavanaugh supporters, and of people reframing the issues around irrelevant topics instead of challenging our arguments directly.

This was NEVER about abortion — not for us.  It was never about politics — not for us — and if you think this was a right-wing movement, you’re living in an echo chamber.

Standing With Brett was never about wanting him confirmed.  It was never about the Patriot Act, or about Donald Trump, or the myth of male privilege, and we aren’t the ones seeking to politicize sexual assault.

Standing With Brett boiled down to three things:

(1) Upholding the integrity of the judicial nomination process.

(2) A reaffirmation of due process.

(3) A rejection of the #metoo movement and its underlying feminist ideology.

No matter where any one of us happens to stand politically, THESE were the three things we held in common.

The Silver Lining

0

If there is any silver lining to be found in what’s occurred over these past few weeks, it’s that so many men have been able to come out and tell their stories — of sexual abuse, of false accusations, or both.

I think we’ve awoken something big.  People are finally starting to realize that men are on the fast track to becoming second-class citizens, and that is definitely not okay.

It’s up to us to make sure people don’t slip back into their complacency once the Kavanaugh thing blows over.  I have a young son, and I don’t want him growing up to be denied opportunities or victimized on account of his gender.
