    Hi. You seem to hide your contact info very well! So I’ll just say it here: Jesus, this place is vile. Tumblr is going to love this. “Piss off a feminist week”? The fuck are you talking about you misogynistic pieces of shit? Try learning what feminism is, your idea of feminists is the most hilariously legless strawman argument there is. Kindly gag on my dick a little, thanks.

    BTDUB the fucking disgusting female-controlling patriarchy you people have created is more than enough. that’s why we’re angry.

    OH WAIT GUYS CANT BE FEMINISTS THO RITE. dont care if you dont accept it. one of you douchey mods working for this place will. suck my dick, yo.

  • MeasureforMeasure

    If it’s so vile, Nick. go to another playground.

    Yes, men can be feminists. I’ve known several. They never told me to suck their dick and they weren’t vile…unlike you, and as far as sucking your dick-well I appreciate the offer, but no thanks.

  • MeasureforMeasure

    Oh, yeah. Nick-Female controlling. LOL. Like women in America can’t get a job or drive and are kept in burkas or have their clitorises removed? You mean that kind of “female controlling patrirachy” because its just so wrong

    for men to prefer SAHM-and of course their wives are kept there by gunpoint. Some of feminism from men consists of wanting women be paid as much as men for the same work-which i don’t see people arguing against- and to be sexually available and to be able get rid of their children up to the six month and beyond. “Free your ass” Such freedom.

    If you want to be taken seriously, maybe you should argue rationally and reasonably because at this point you sound like a parody. Of course you could be a sock, I suppose.

    No fair! Mark Ruffalo gets to be a sex addict with Gwyneth Paltrow and Pink and I’m stuck with Coors Light…

  • Wombat_socho

    Oh, look, another raving loony. *whack*

  • Wombat_socho

    I know, right?
