The Manboobz Challenge
On the Forum Manboobz, Holly Pervocracy had a challenge to MRA’s
Basically, it was a call to MRA’s to find an MRA/MGTOW website that does not bash women and just focus on mens issues. In addition,
on a posting from 8/5/11 on the same site a woman named Par1ka wrote to me
“You alleged that there are all these MRA/MGTOW blogs that don’t talk about women at all, it’s all about fellowship and male bonding. So…show me an MRA/MGTOW blog where there aren’t these angry/bitter articles about everything that’s wrong with women. Happy Bachelors obviously doesn’t fit the bill. If the majority its self-purported “best” articles are mostly rants about why women are so awful, and that’s the bit that even non-members are allowed to see, then there does seem to be a negative fixation on women of sorts, or some desire to give the impression of a negative fixation. After all, they so readily flaunt these anger/misery-filled articles.”
Okay, this is my confusion. Perhaps Holly is right in a way, many MRA/MGTOW blogs do bash women and men vehemently vent against women. Even on some MGTOW blogs that call for gender separatism, many men criticize women. Conversely, I have seen Feminist blogs where women vent against men. What is ironic about Holly’s challenge is she as a feminist seems infatuated with MRA’s who allegedly say they want nothing to do with women but still blog about them. Her fascination with MRA’ who contend to ignore women but still blog about them, is just like the MRA guy who want nothing to do with women but still blog about them.
Even in my own life, as a self described MGTOW, I hate women but love women. It may be the specific quandary, that men and women (including feminists and MRA’s) are cursed to suffer a love/hate relationship and why not? It is very difficult not to despise a particular group of people that has such a hold on one’s heart. This is just my opinion, for what it’s worth.
