Richard Dawkins, once the superior overlord of logic to MRA’s everywhere has now become a meanie old man who lives in an ivory tower and doesn’t understand anything about anything.
Paul Elam and co. are having a mantrum over not being publicly recognized by Richard Dawkins when he spoke at Kennesaw State University. For those of you not in the know, KSU has been infested with a men’s rights group started by AVFM’s Sage Gerard, who is a Senior there. Needless to say, the Uni has been a bit of a hot spot when it comes to hating on feminists so when the mighty Dawkins was asked about feminism and then about men’s rights, something happened.
During the QnA Dawkins was asked if he supports feminism and asked if feminism is important within the scientific community. Of course he answered ‘yes’ and even gave the appropriate definition of feminism, albeit a rather thin one.
When asked if Dawkins supports men’s rights he replied he had no idea what the MRM is and said he doesn’t think men are discriminated against to which the audience clapped. Wooooboy!
Caution: Elam Tears Ahead
Dawkins was once a darling of the MRM due to his snarky anti-feminist remarks to Rebecca Watson that we often hear from manchildren who say feminism is not needed in Western countries and the darky Muslim women have it ‘oh so much worse.’ Comments like that, we know, are mens way to silence women, to tell her she’s a dumb bitch and should shut up about it.
MRA’s rejoiced at Dawkins response to Watson. They crowned him a male hero.
Then this happened:
The oh-so-logical Dawkins has taken his official fall from grace over at AVFM. (Get your male tears mugs ready)
Dawkins is now an old bat who doesn’t know his ass from his elbow.
[Dawkins is] so insulated in his ivory tower that it has disconnected him from anything, well, contemporary. He seems so unplugged at this point that he actually seems to think that ideology is good for science.~Paul Elam
In between castigating old man Dawkins, Elam and co are making up little bed time stories about the event to make themselves feel better.
The audience applause at Dawkins remark that he didn’t think men are oppressed has been re-made into a new story, one that Elam’s ego can handle. The applause was really from MRA’s thinking Dawkins is a dumb poopy head.
The snickers in the audience had two meanings, Richard. One, they were the auditory equivalent of eye rolls. And two, they were an acknowledgement of hateful ideologues (the feminism you no longer seem to understand) that you have been sufficiently conditioned or cowed into being useful to.~Paul Elam
Elam’s invented some new shit too. In regards to feminism being important in science Elam’s new story is that Dawkins thinks ideology and science should be mixed together. LOL. It doesn’t get any better than this.
That is the problem with living the insulated life. Not only do you end up making foil-hat-worthy observations that translate to ideology being good for science, but eventually the insulation becomes so thick, so protective and muffling, that whatever tiny spark remains in the wire is of little use to science or to society.
This kind of Elam meltdown is hilarious because he invents a completely new story to soothe his poor ego.
The comment section is hilarious too. Dawkins went from a masculine logical manly man to an old bat.
Dawkins is 73 years old. He’s hardly immune to the ravages of age.
This is a man 1) who is so insulated from the matter he’s simply unaware of facts, and his support for feminism therefore has no meaning; 2) whose mind and memory are clouded by age… ~Jack Strawb
Dawkins has always been a bit of a hack.~Matt Cash
Look into Thunderf00t and his videos. There’s a real skeptic.~Daniel Freeman
