Weddings are so much fun, but take a lot of planning, sorta like a conference but in this case wedding planning is misandry or so the misogynists over at AVFM say. August Lovenskiolds is running around like a chicken with its head cut off because a lovely feminist, Laura Bates of the Everyday Sexism project , is tying the knot, fortunately not to August or any other lonely dudebros over at AVFM, but to her ‘new domestic slave.’
AVFM is totally concerned that the weddings feminists are having are traditional and yet are furious that Bates seems to be contributing to ‘misogyny’ by having a traditional wedding, which she’s not. ‘It’s a ‘feminist sham worthy of the same respect due campus sexual assault claims,’ says Lovenskiolds, and ‘Valenti’s feminism erases all feeling and passion from pair-bonding and sexuality.’ Read that in your best David Attenborough voice and tell me you didn’t laugh.
He even reminisces about Jessica Valenti’s wedding nuptials saying that she lacked ‘marital commitment’ because she kept her last name. Bates is also a violator of the patriarchal naming principle, all in the spirit of traditionalism, which er, isn’t actually present.
He moans Laura Bates wants to
‘demonize and demolish, in an abstract way, men and male sexuality in general and the civilization men built at the behest of women: she has decided that the personal is political and so she plans to enslave, torture, and destroy one exceedingly unlucky bloke in order to reify the feminist inclination to exterminate the patriarchy that feeds, clothes, and shelters her from the hazards of the world.’
The concern about the gown didn’t escape Lovenskiolds either. Laura Bates is ‘undeserving of a white dress symbolizing purity/virginity. But consistent with her brand of feminism that emphasizes the importance of celebrating female narcissism, she opted for the traditional white gown anyway.’ The horror.
This, he says, is feminists being ‘traditional’ and feminists aren’t supposed to be traditional at all or else they’re giving in to the patriarchy. I never knew AVFM was so concerned about something they claim doesn’t exist and yet claim it’s happening in this wedding when it’s not.
Even the poor plants are going to suffer according to Lovenskiolds. ”They are also the sliced-off sexual organs of plants,’ he complains.
Has anyone else noticed that every complaint revolves around sex and some phallic paranoid theory about castration?
Lovenskiolds has realized that weddings are about ‘channelling your inner slut’ and even throwing the bouquet is something Bates threw ‘like a girl.’
For so much venom from MRA’s over at AVFM for feminist weddings, one thing’s for sure. AVFM can’t say these two feminists are man-hating lesbians like they usually do to women . He also attacks the men who are marrying these lovely women. Valenti’s husband is a ‘cuckold’ and Lovenskiolds worries about Laura’s future husband’s ‘dwindling masculinity.’
This is uh, supposed to be about men’s rights but as the misters show us once again it has nothing to do with what men want to do with their lives. It’s about shaming men who are doing things they’d love to be doing if only they could get past the hatreds and jealousies that clog their small minds.
