On a post on AVFM featuring the right wing ‘feminist’ Christina Hoff Sommers a few MRA’s in the comment section got into it about suffrage. Most people who follow these male supremacist fuckwits know that bringing up suffrage as a staple point of women’s subjugation by men is a precursor to MRA emotional meltdowns.
During the meltdown you’ll see MRA’s climbing on top of each other, comment after comment, making the most outlandish statements. The historical revisionism gets so obnoxious that Elam eventually starts bringing up the fact that 17 year old’s can’t vote as a diversion. What he’s really saying is women are 17 year old’s that are too immature to vote. It just turns into a competition on who can be the most silly in the clusterfuck.
I’ve exposed the many contradictions MRA’s make when they get into these emo fights. This comment fight was no different.
A relatively new commenter brought up the fact that suffrage was a response to the oppression of women, that women not being allowed a say in the laws that governed them was indeed subjugation. This started the snowball rolling.
Angry Harry, a British MRA, is considered by many to be the first online MRA. He’s well respected. Without knowing it, Angry Harry contradicted Paul Elam during the clusterfuck and told him he was uneducated. CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE
If anyone noticed, this isn’t an argument about oppression of women due to not having the vote. Elam avoids it by talking about the current day.
Angry Harry’s response to another commenter not realizing that he insulted and contradicted Elam:
The Men’s Rights Movement is a joke.
- Women only make up 20% of the US Senate
- Women only make up 19% of US Congress
- In Canada women are only 25% of the federal legislature
