I mentioned in an earlier post that there is a movement called ‘masculism’ that “consists of social theories, political movements, and moral philosophies primarily based on the experiences of men.” (From Wikipedia).
First of all, what’s up with calling it ‘masculism’? That’s not even a word. To be a word, there would have to be something called a ‘mascule,’ which there is not. It’s very interesting that the beliefs I find offensive are often espoused by people that are complete idiots and have only a dim understanding of the English language.
‘Masculists’ (and yes, I will continue to put these terms in quotes, as they are not real words) also have a very tenuous grasp on basic logic. For example, they believe that violence against women is frowned upon by society but violence against men is encouraged; that legislation such as VAWA (the Violence Against Women Act) is discriminatory against men, even though, in the words of Twisty Faster, “violence against women is a fucking global humanitarian crisis, yo”; that the tendency of advocates to believe women when they say they have been abused means that men don’t receive fair trials; that higher auto insurance rates for men constitutes discrimination (that argument is my personal favorite); and a whole bunch of other asinine crap that anyone with the power of observation and more than 3 firing synapses could deduce is nothing more than asinine crap.
