"This goes beyond fear of feminism- this is fear of women at its purest"

"You see it all over the place online in the form of Men's Rights Activists (of whom there are a few reasonable non-misogynists), Men Going Their Own Way, Pick Up Artists, and dudes touting the "Red Pill", because The Matrix is a good movie. Look any of these up if you have the stomach for it. These are extreme examples, but watered-down forms of these ideas are everywhere." - Scott Benson on his short editorial cartoon about the strange anti-woman online world of self-pity, entitlement, and outright fear - "But I'm A Nice Guy."

This post was deleted for the following reason: This is a clever little cartoon but it's not really saying anything new, and I don't think it's a discussion we need to have again right now. -- restless_nomad

I have a Facebook friend who leans towards "men's rights". He's been in a long, emotionally abusive relationship, so I guess I should cut him some slack, but it's rather hard to avoid challenging him when he makes a silly post about the fact that "90% of magazine covers have women on them" etc etc. Luckily he only posts about that once every couple of months...

it's not really coherent - i'm sure there's a cartoon that could be done about this, but this wasn't it

and take the red pill in reference to men's rights is really a thing?
