I really wish Youtube was an actual real, physical location. The way that it acts as a magnet for ignorant racist, misogynist, bigotted fuckwits would make it really easy to just

I should also learn to just never read the comments on videos I watch.  After the jump is a c+p of a recent exchange I had with a gentleman calling himself ‘disagreeablesob’ in the comments section of a video showing radical feminists disrupting a conference on abused men gaining access to support structures that are available to women who suffer domestic abuse.

Obviously I think that men should be able to access equal support and help when they suffer at the hands of partners and that these women were, for want of a better word, wankers. However I do take offence at the way some other wankers use this as an excuse to dismiss feminism in it’s entirity and to justify their own misogyny.

Actually, if Youtube were a real place then maybe we could send all the radical feminists there too…

If reporting all crime was like reporting rape…

Man: Hello, I’d like to report a mugging.

Officer: A mugging, eh? Where did it take place?

Man: I was walking by 21st and Dundritch Street and a man pulled out a gun and said, “Give me all your money.”

Officer: And did you?

Man: Yes, I co-operated.

Officer: So you willingly gave the man your money without fighting back, calling for help or trying to escape?

Man: Well, yes, but I was terrified. I thought he was going to kill me!

Officer: Mmm. But you did co-operate with him. And I’ve been informed that you’re quite a philanthropist, too.

Man: I give to charity, yes.

Officer: So you like to give money away. You make a habit of giving money away.

Man: What does that have to do with this situation?

Officer: You knowingly walked down Dundritch Street in your suit when everyone knows you like to give away money, and then you didn’t fight back. It sounds like you gave money to someone, but now you’re having after-donation regret. Tell me, do you really want to ruin his life because of your mistake?

Man: This is ridiculous!

Officer: This is a rape analogy. This is what women face every single day when they try to bring their rapists to justice.

Man: Fuck the patriarchy.

Officer: Word.

Creation or Evolution

Does It Really Matter What You Believe?

Creationism or Evolution: Does it really matter what you believe? Is a pamphlet produced, and distributed for free, by the Universal Church of God. The aim of the pamphlet, as should be fairly clear, is to give the ‘evidence’ that not only is Darwin’s theory of evolution untrue but that it is socially harmful. I’m going to read through this pamphlet and as I do I’ll post up a wee review of each chapter. I’ll aim to have a chapter up each week as there is only so much of this stuff that I can handle in one sitting. 😀 Continue reading “Let the Madness Begin… :/”
