Mashup August 26, 2017

Proof that Americans are lying about their sexual desires- Considering how sexually repressed the vast majority of Americans are it doesn't surprise me that people lie about their desires.

'If a girl can throw a punch, she can take one': Vile comments spark outrage on police Facebook page after post about domestic violence against MEN - This is a really old one but it caught my attention because of the way that a single case of a woman killed by domestic violence was used to silence the mere acknowledgement that men are abused.

WONDER WOMAN: Why the DCEU Doesn’t Need Superman - Hint: Its because the writer doesn't like the direction Superman has taken in the DCEU so far.

We’re losing a whole generation of young men to video games - A whole generation is not being lost to video games. Its being lost to a constant bombardment of how they are bad, how they are privileged, how they hurt women, and how they must change in order to make women's lives better. Maybe if someone expressed some concern for men for our own fucking sake we might give a shit in return?

Black Officer Shoots And Kills Unarmed White Woman, Now See What Happening In America - It's all fun and games until a white woman gets hurt.

on Ghostbusters and identity - To this day I still say that Ghostbusters 2016 was a casualty of identity politics. If it wasn't for people preemptively defending it by declaring that any and all criticism of it was based in misogyny it would have at worst just flown under the radar as another mediocre attempt at making a modern version of a classic film.

Washington's biggest problem isn't gridlock or wasted dollars — it's men - Because blaming all the troubles on a single demographic is a surefire way to unite everyone....

USA Today Complains About Lack of 'Women' and 'No Lead Actors of Color' in Movie 'Dunkirk' - Wait so there is a problem with a movie about white guys trying to save white guys from other white guys that are trying to kill those white guys lacking women and actors of color?

Why It's a Bad Idea to Tell Students Words Are Violence - Trying to expand the definition of a word just in order to justify actions you want to take (namely wanting to physically attack someone for saying something you don't like) will not end well.

Dang — looks like those women-only “Wonder Woman” screenings were illegal - Oh how convenient of them to wait until more than a month after Wonder Woman's theatrical run for them to finally fess up that what they did was wrong. And then have the fucking nerve to offer a DVD as some sort of half assed non-apology apology.

Why We Can’t Have the Male Pill - Along with the science I think there are cultural reasons that delay a male pill. Because if a reliable male pill came along it would give men a degree of power in reproduction that a lot of people are simply not ready for.

A Non-Feminist FAQ - Its about a year old but still worth reading. I'll warn that its a LONG read but pretty good.

THINKING STRATEGICALLY ABOUT FREE SPEECH AND VIOLENCE - We definitely have to turn back on this. People are so wrapped up in cool memes and scathing insults to justify violence against supposed Nazis that it is slowly becoming a case people getting so preoccupied with whether or not they should that they didn't stop and think about whether or not they should.
