MRA’s and their little colour coded charts to deal with criticism of their hateful ideology: here’s a Code Blue
Charge of Hypersensitivity (Code Blue) – The Crybaby Charge
Discussion: The target is accused of being hysterical or exaggerating the problems of men (i.e., he is accused of playing “Chicken Little”). Examples:
• “Stop whining!”
• “Get over it!”
• “Suck it up like a man!”
• “You guys don’t have it as nearly as bad as us women!”
• “You’re just afraid of losing your male privileges.”
• “Your fragile male ego …”
• “Wow! You guys need to get a grip!”
Response: One who uses the Code Blue shaming tactic reveals a callous indifference to the humanity of men. It may be constructive to confront such an accuser and ask if a certain problem men face needs to be addressed or not (”yes” or “no”), however small it may be seem to be. If the accuser answers in the negative, it may constructive to ask why any man should care about the accuser’s welfare since the favour will obviously not be returned. If the accuser claims to be unable to do anything about the said problem, one can ask the accuser why an attack is necessary against those who are doing something about it.
I find this one particularly funny because this little tactic is something they use against women all the time. They consistently red-herring any conversation about male violence against women. I’ve made several videos about issues specific to women and inevitably I get MRA’s coming to the comment section to switch the focus to themselves.
The last part of the code blue is the most interesting:
“If the accuser claims to be unable to do anything about the said problem, one can ask the accuser why an attack is necessary against those who are doing something about it.”
The point is that MRA’s are doing nothing about anything. They sit online and refuse to even engage the system to solve any problems. This is why Earl Silverman is dead. He certainly got no donations from Paul Elam for his shelter. Instead, Earl tried engaging the government even though, like Paul, he thinks the government is some feminist gynocracy. When Earl couldn’t do the most basic of paperwork it takes he got upset and committed suicide. So no, MRA’s do nothing about anything, unless you count doc dropping various women and writing out their rage online.
Feminists don’t consider men’s issues something that men are whining about. What we are fed up with is MRA’s who whine about feminism and women. They hardly ever talk about real issues of men without blaming feminists and women. This is why they’ll never accomplish much of anything except maybe to give us a good laugh.
This is the same movement that calls other men ‘manginas’ if they don’t agree with MRA’s on their seething hatred of women and feminism.
