Feminist ABC claims cats are an antidote to masculinity

A response to

Archived from 11 Dec 2016 02:33:13 UTC

"an antidote to toxic masculinity"

Masculinity is the quality of being male. It is not a disease. We do not need to be 'cured'.

"An online movement of men is shrugging off the stereotype that 'cats are for girls'"

Which isn't a stereotype outside of your imaginations. No-one cares.

"they're giving others permission to embrace a gentler, more thoughtful kind of masculinity."

We do not need your permission for anything. Our masculinity is OURS to define as we please. You do not get to police how we "male".

"Myles Loughran is a cat man. 'Cat man' as in, 'cat lady', but with a Y-chromosome."

Rubbish. Cat ladies have far more cats than they should - in fact, it's suspected they are the victims of a parasite in the brain.

"[Toxo infection] may be linked to schizophrenia and other disturbances associated with altered dopaminc levels — for example, obsessive-compulsive disorder, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, and mood disorders.”" Joanne Webster, a parsitologist at the Imperial College London.

"For too long, there's been a stereotype about cat guys."

No evidence is presented for this, of course. It is simply asserted, in exactly the way antisemitic propaganda was asserted. The audience Listened and Believed everything that suited their prejudices. The idea of the Patriarchy dictating that men should not have cats makes perfect sense to the SocJus maniacs who lap this stuff up.

"some might dismiss men's pussy PDAs as frivolous"

Yes. Some might. We call them "sane people". It meets every definition of frivolous to post pictures of your pets.

characterized by lack of seriousness or sense:
frivolous conduct.
self-indulgently carefree; unconcerned about or lacking any serious purpose.
(of a person) given to trifling or undue levity:
a frivolous, empty-headed person.
of little or no weight, worth, or importance; not worthy of serious notice:
a frivolous suggestion.
Kittens are cute, but pictures of them lack serious purpose,
and it reflects on the state of the ABC that they now focus on them

US Captain L Woods with Australian prisoners of war

This is the sort of thing the ABC used to focus on,
before it decided that was all too toxic and masculine.

Now all it does is cats on rhoombas.

Why does the ABC still exist?
Why is it paid for by men when all it does is shit on them?

"experts say "

Experts? Gotta love those ABC weasel words. What experts? What are their credentials? With what skepticism were their claims met? What testing was done.

'Experts' claim everything, apparently.

Hey, ABC! Experts say your days are numbered; that more and more of your programs are getting the ax. Because instead of news - you post fluff stories and feminist propaganda. At a time fewer and fewer Australians identify as feminist.

Sure, you are very popular with that echo chamber - but it's getting tighter and tighter inside.

Sooner or later, you will implode into nothingness.

Or so the experts say - not taking any responsibility for that opinion myself, of course.
Why is it the ABC only wants to know about castrated males,
and can't even be bothered to check
how different masculine (un-neutered) cats look like?

Is it because, in their view, every male should be given the snip?

Gotta love those experts.

"Why are cats considered feminine?"

Because they are castrated. Do you have any idea what an uncastrated Tom is like? Of course you don't - that would be data that doesn't help you reach your desired conclusion. Throw that cherry aside, ABC!

So who is your expert?

Dr Heather Fraser?

Over the course of her academic career Heather has taught many courses, including: Critical Social Work, Anti-Oppressive Practice, Feminist Policies and Perspectives, Theorising Inequality, Social Policy, Social Work Research, Advocacy and Social Action, Community Work, Groupwork, Communication Skills and Narrative Analysis. At Flinders she has also taught: Social Work Theories of Intervention Gender and Sexuality; and Child Welfare.

Huh! So her expertise is in feminism, and everything she does is viewed through a feminist lens. She has no scientific credentials, is never treated critically, and has no more credibility than a scientologist or a flat-earther.

She shares your faith - so you paint her as an expert. It's circular. How do we know this feminist belief is true? A feminist said it was.

 the "rise of the metrosexual" man - sorry, you think dandies are new? Well, since your experts are feminists, not historians, that doesn't surprise me.

"It may also allow men to express a kinder, more thoughtful form of masculinity"

MAY. Speculation without any evidence. It may also cause them to levitate to the moon, or devour the souls of the innocent. Where the hell are your facts?

Where is the data showing that men who don't have cats are cruel?

"A previous study, in 1998, found that men who were identified as liking cats were rated by participants as less masculine and more feminine than men who liked dogs"

Oh. Right. So you regard masculine men as bad men. Why does that not surprise me? You automatically rated feminine men as kind, because in your sexism, women are GOOD and men are BAD.

Bigots will do that; the members of their ingroup are always assigned positive values; the Others are demonised, and bigots have nothing good to say about them.

The only 'acceptable' man to a feminist is a feminised man. A neutered man. A spayed man.

Jesus bloody Christ!

The rest of your fluff piece just repeats itself - so I'll leave you to your man-hating.

May your kind be locked up in a room with other bigots until nothing is left but the remains of your vanilla lattes.

Sexbots ARE a part of the answer

A reply to Sexbots Aren’t The Answer To Feminism

"A robot that looks like a woman but isn’t a woman is just a fake woman for men who don’t like women."

Rubbish. In a state where feminists have made heterosex a crime for men, it's the only safe way for a man to do anything other than crude masturbation.

"Imagine a future where masses of men divorce themselves from the world and have sex with robots instead of people."

It would only be men in feminist countries.

 "Maybe children would all be conceived through artificial means by then and raised by the government."

 This is what feminists proposed back in the 1960s as their goal, yes. Have a read of the feminist literature of that time, they are quite open about it.

 "If not, humanity would die off."

 No, Western Civlisation would fall. Feminism has no power outside the West, and they have kids like crazy in Islamic countries.

 "Machines Can’t Replace People"

 No, but they can replace people who are dangerous. In a feminist society, every woman can accuse any man of being a rapist, and probably win the case unless the man has a lot of money.

 It's self-defense to use a bot instead.

 And it's interesting that no-one raises the same arguments against the use of sex toys by women.

 "Sexbots don’t just demean women."

 They don't demean anyone. Sextoys are not voodoo.

 " they demean men in thinking that men are nothing more than base animals only interested in carnal desires"

 Uh huh. Did dildos do that to women?

  “[M]ost blokes are fine with a pizza and a wank,” Milo wrote, and “[M]en are just as happy beating a video game as they are solving the riddles of the universe.”

Largely true - few men are philosophers. That has always been the case.

  "Men are happy being worthless losers "
  And few women are philosophers - yet it's only men you regard as worthless by your standard?

" Humans live for so much more than that."

No, a few do, most don't push themselves and regard their life as good if they aren't hungry etc.

The masses of humanity do not care about such matters, which is probably a good thing because we would starve in short order if farmers lost themselves in existentialism rather than dealing with crop dusting.

 You keep looking at the exceptions and imaging they are the norm; they are not, never have been, and it's unlikely they ever will be. Communism requires everyone to have such a  lofty nature, and communism fails every single time because we do not have that disposition.

 Facing reality rather than enjoyable delusions is the first step to being a philosopher. Practise what you preach, sir.

Feminists denounce the rape of fictitious females - don't give a shit about real raped men

Archived from 7 Dec 2016 06:03:04 UTC
Showrunners call rape-for-shock-value a “plague on the industry”

Do they? Because it's been there since the first works of fiction were created. Along with incest, murder and insanity. So - are they to be eradicated as well? Will perfectly inoffensive fiction be created by a committee of the politically correct?
"In the wake of controversy surrounding comments from Last Tango In Paris director Bernardo Bertolucci"

- which was manufactured for shock value, ironically enough. The truth of that situation was considered far too dull.

"I would say out of those 200 scripts, there were probably 30 or 40 of them that opened with a rape or had a pretty savage rape at some point"

Yes. It pushes emotional buttons. You can have a billion dead male bodies and people will yawn. One female rape, an the pulses are racing! One male rape? Oh, that's called a comedy.

Or Amy Schumer having a night out.

"We were not going to do that thing where it’s about how the hero’s wife and child were killed"
Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru
- was it a simple electrical fault, as the Empire claimed?
Ahh, so you are not going to motivate your audiences to care about the situation. An interesting tactic! So Luke Skywalker's adopted parents, in the revised Star Wars, will not be shot and burnt, well - not sure of they were shot, but it's kinder to think that they were. Instead, they shall all sit together braiding each other's hair.

It would certainly make for a shorter story. Save a lot on production costs. And on hiring cinemas, because who the hell would pay money to see that?

People want horrors. They want pain. To purge themselves. This has been known since the time of the Greek civilisation - yet somehow it's news to these guys.

"Most notably, Variety cited HBO’s blockbuster Game Of Thrones—long criticized for its willingness to deploy rape as a method of shock"

criticised by feminists, not people who actually create stuff, yes. I noticed the readers of that book series were perfectly happy to make it into a mega-best-seller despite the fact that a few ideologues shrieked UNACCEPTABLE every time a fictional woman suffered.

"If you’re going to do it, show it, and show it from the P.O.V. from the woman"

They half did that and you guys freaked. You really need to get your story straight, if only for an afternoon.

"don’t use it as a way to motivate a male character.”

Fine. Men are raped in prison all the time. Tell me about all the feminist stories where the woman who loves a male rape victim does something to avenge his pain.

I mean, there must be hundreds... dozens... one? Is there even one? Is there any single fiction a feminist has written where the value of a man's pain is enough for a woman to lift a finger?

Of course not, silly! Feminism is for everybody! Just not MEN.

Boys can't be boys? The Feminist Decree!

Archived 1 Dec 2016 09:20:34 UTC from

Trees will be trees, cats will be cats, but feminists cannot face up to the facts.

Boys WILL be boys, they're not stunted females.
They WILL be free of you shrieking Euryales.
You say we are toxic, well that's quite the joke;
Seems to me that you really can't tell us how t'bloke!

To stifle their minds and make them your slaves;
He Is For She proclaimed on airwaves!
But resistance is growing and from you we'll be free.
We boys; we men; heeding not your decree.

"Mother WISE"? Well most mothers their own son accepts.
Feminist 'wisdom' them imprisons
by it's vile precepts!

Don't act like men, what are you, a babyish cult?
Doesn't it seem time to become an adult?
We'll be men; you, women; on that we are clear.
And our lads will be free from your clutch coming near.

'Fake' news sites like Breitbart to be censored Breitbart is banned because it's "hyperpartisan"? In other words, not because it's factually incorrect, but guilty of wrongthink?*7gyqFJCiPnzkogJ4tbq42g.jpegSome Facebook plugins are auto-censoring this right now.  archived from
"‘Watch out if known/reputable news sites are not also reporting on the story"

But that's the problem. All the MSM were reporting things like that Trump was losing the election, and Clinton was moving to Victory, Victory, Victory!

Which means we lose faith in them.

Just as we did when the Elliot Rodgers story broke and the MSM blamed men's rights activists and even GamerGate for his actions. They copied and pasted false information, and refused to acknowledge as they drifted - knowingly - into full on propaganda.

I spoke to a journalist called John Birmingham. He knew what the facts were. He just didn't CARE.
Zimdars to decide what
will be allowed to see.

The MSM no longer prints facts, it prints propaganda, which is why their sales are plummeting and people are turning elsewhere. Would it be nice to have some objective body tell us who is factual?


Is Zimdars someone who can be trusted? No evidence has been provided, we have just been told to trust her; but the fact that Buzzfeed-style webpages are not included makes it clear to me she has an agenda, and she wants only her side to be heard, and others to be silenced.

And there it is.

She's interested in teaching SocJus, and wants antifeminist websites censored through this back door.

Jule. (Spoilers for Far Harbour)

I found Jule's story very depressing - like a lot of Fallout 4, it's a no-win scenario, and you, thanks to the inflexibility of voice acting, can't do anything clever to solve the problem.

You might be the most intelligent, scientifically and medically trained person in the Commonwealth, with access to the Institute and the Railroad's best minds - and it don't matter squat. You have the same choices in game as a moron.

Jule seems suicidally depressed at the end of her story. She keeps repeating that she has nowhere to go and can't trust anyone. She just sits in a shack, on the dirty ground, with no food, no water, exposed to monsters who will kill her in horrible ways.

So I said "Fuck that!", and built something decent around her. I don't have the skills to mod her behaviour, but by moving the 'rug' that has the scripted negative look, I feel like I symbolically removed that behaviour at least.

I gave her food and water, and cups of hot chocolate, and a warm shower she can use whenever she wants to - and she does use it, although - alas - the game reverts her to her grubby self.

I that imagine she gets so dirty from tending her garden. Or she's got Pigpen's curse, I suppose!

You can never have too many cups of hot chocolate.

I don't know if she's exactly happy - but she doesn't seem as miserable?
Is that a slight smile?
I popped down a deckchair for her to use...

and Piper snapped it up like the greedy chair-pig she is!

Tamed wolves act as guards. 

The house training is a little spotty but nothing's perfect.

Jule's bed. I'd like one like that.

There was a glitch in the production run of this synth.

The view from the top of Jule's house.

Deacon's fixing up some turrets on the roof of the shed she likes to sit in, and watch the sunset.
The view from the wind turbine - I think I've really made Acadia's outer areas somewhere nice to live in, don't you?
Valentine and Deacon discuss the view, from above the fog
- which we now suspect was caused by the Vim production process.

For all your dining needs, visit Jule's Place. Now with less random ghoul attacks.

Review: Nuka World (Spoilers!)

I sort out my equipment, strapping on guns, guns and more guns. I'm going to need them!

Spoilers ahead:

Well, I went through Nuka World.  I loved the scenery, and the funhouse especially.

 I found the story about the quest to save people from turning into ferals enjoyable and moving - but found it frustrating that i couldn't mention being the leader of the Minutemen, that I had a settlement of ghouls, and was friends with GoodNeighbour who would have loved to have known of a solution, and all of them would have funded research.

Heck, I wanted to make Oswald live on an island with his ferals, and only deal with him via electronics, in case it was his presence that was turning them. That would have been a twist!

I kinda wish i could recruit Oswald to run this place again
- he was a heck of a showman.

My career seems to involve a lot of joining groups,
only to turn on them and kill off their members.

Looking down from my Penthouse view.
Wouldn't it be cool if they had made it all developable as settlements?
I mean, there are mods that sort of work - but they are always buggy, and struggle with litter etc.

But I'd love to have looked down as the ruler of this town.

I just didn't want to rule over treacherous psychopaths. Sue me.
Perhaps I should stock the pond with carp...

But you don't get any of those choices - i guess the voice acting limitation won again.

Well, what about with the raiders? Are they reformable? Well, one tribe was, in an earlier game, but the three here just seem to be evil. The Disciples just seemed to be the worst, the Operators to have potential. But changing them is not an option.

Heck, changing Gage isn't either. In fact, he telepathically knows as soon as you kill one of the mob bosses, regardless of the fact I used the Sandman kill in the middle of the night.

All the raiders knew. Being stealthy or persuasive is out - it's time to slaughter until the streets run red.

I stumbled over Gage, who went from practically professing his love for me to insta-hate.

Hey, why was he loyal to the raiders, who made it clear they were going to kill him if his plan to have me as the new overboss failed?

Why wasn't there an option for him to walk in exile, or even be recruited as an agent for the Commonwealth? Worse men than him have served as agents of the crown.

So i shoot and I shoot and I shoot and I shoot and they are all dead. Jeez, even the Institute had some option for saving some of them.

There's beautiful artwork in Fallout, I love constructing settlements (especially modded) - but argh, it really disappoints me as a game.

Sometimes I find the panorama
of my creations
rather breathtaking!

(But I wish i could fix the bloody rooves!)

I dunno, maybe they should just sell the construction game separately from the shoot-em-up!

Still, the holes do allow for easy access
if anyone wants to join me in my viewing pleasures...
I loot the bodies. Can I turn the place into a settlement at least?

Nope, not an option.

The traders inform me they'll be running the place for themselves, without joining the Minutemen even, despite remaining helpless; despite being ripe for the next group of thugs to take over.

So what was their big plan? The Raiders were going to take over the Commonwealth?

It was never going to happen.

The BoS have air power - they could have dropped nukes on raider towns from the sky, and every settlement would have turned to swear fealty to them if the Minutemen failed to protect them.

"So you freed me - am i supposed to feel grateful?"
And the Institute - well, the raiders didn't seem to even be aware of them.

The neurological weapons the raiders had - the persuasion gas, for example - wouldn't have worked on synths, but would have been refined even further by a hi-tech organisation that specialised in biochemistry. The Institute could have teleported them in everywhere they wanted...

I will say, I think the pink rifles are just adorable!

The Raiders were only good at pillaging weak groups, making them weaker, making them die, in a world where humanity was already struggling.

They might have caused the Commonwealth to implode, before they died out themselves at the hands of their many enemies. Which included themselves, they turned on each other very quickly.

So what did I think of it as a DLC? It was okay. I had a season pass, which did the job. I think if you wanted to play as an evil character, and had this right from the start, then it would be good value.

I found Automatron to be more engaging, and it had a little more choice involved as well - I'd have to rate it as the best DLC, followed by Far Harbour.

I prefer playing as the hero, because, well, evil's just ... mundane I guess. But that's my taste. If you want to let the darker side of your nature rip - this is the one for you!
