I’ve been reading some herstorical documents on women’s suffrage and Youtube videos. It’s common knowledge on Youtube that every video about women’s rights is invaded by MRA’s in the comment section. Many MRA’s hate the fact women can vote. On one video, which looks like a school project of a female highschool student, an MRA left a comment describing what he’d do if he could go back to the suffragette era and write the 19th amendment. It’s extremely disturbing but shows how the Manosphere thinks of women and how they want to enslave us and enact male violence on us. Their hypocrisy I’ll save for after you read what follows.
I find it odd that MRA’s are whining about a post by Julie Bindel, which they quote mined, when I can find MRA’s saying things like the above all over the place. Julie’s writing was tongue in cheek. She talked about women only communities to escape the very real problem of male violence and compulsory heterosexuality and made a quip about men in camps that women could check out like a library book. MRA’s took that one statement, didn’t read the rest of it, and starting falling down on the ground having mantrums.
Here’s Julie’s quote, in context
Will heterosexuality survive women’s liberation?
It won’t, not unless men get their act together, have their power taken from them and behave themselves. I mean, I would actually put them all in some kind of camp where they can all drive around in quad bikes, or bicycles, or white vans. I would give them a choice of vehicles to drive around with, give them no porn, they wouldn’t be able to fight – we would have wardens, of course! Women who want to see their sons or male loved ones would be able to go and visit, or take them out like a library book, and then bring them back.
Wow, that was so serious. Quad bikes and white vans.
Yet above we have this MRA describing his sexually violent laws, in great detail, as a reaction to women having the right to vote. It’s not a quip or a metaphor. It’s not a funny one liner buried in an analytic post like Julie’s was. It’s a long description of what he thinks of women and what he wants to do to us.
MRA’s are so hypocritical. They talk about women’s suffrage being wrong, abortion being wrong, enslaving us through law, and taking away our rights but when a woman says ‘we’ve had enough’ and makes a quip about men with quad bikes in a camp with no porn, men go insane. It’s the typical scenario where women are, like Mill says, supposed to like being oppressed by men. The moment we fight back with the mildest of words, men go insane.
We’re not the ones suggesting suffrage was a bad idea or coming up with ways to sexually and physically torture through law. We’re not the one’s getting off on sexually violent porn all day. We simply aren’t the perpetrators, men are.
