    [–] Equality JestyerAverageJoe 3 points ago in memes

    You also may not have known that in about half of violent relationships, the violence is reciprocal (both people are violent); of the other half of violent relationships, approximately 70% of the violence is committed by women. Furthermore, lesbian relationships have the highest rates of domestic violence.

    [–] What made you become a mens rights activist? JestyerAverageJoe 4 points ago in MensRights

    Being a man and hearing what feminists have to say about people like me. There were plenty of more concrete experiences, but the blatant nonstop misandry was what first made me pay attention.

    [–] The drugging of boys JestyerAverageJoe 3 points ago in MensRights

    Wouldn't it be nice if a magazine "for men" was actually positive towards men?

    [–] Growing Up As A Man In A Female Empowerment Climate JestyerAverageJoe 2 points ago in MensRights

    It bears noting that the goal of "female empowerment" is not necessarily laudable, even though it's typically presented that way (with the hidden assumption that women are always disadvantaged). For instance, universities are already mostly women; how much "female empowerment" is needed there?

    [–] As a female, how can I advocate for the rights of men and boys? JestyerAverageJoe 2 points ago in MensRights

    You can still be a feminist and a MRA at the same time

    If you want to be self-hating.

    You might also be interested in the books Spreading Misandry, Legalizing Misandry, Replacing Misandry, and Sanctifying Misandry, all four of which were respectively written by Paul Nathanson and Katherine Young. Norah Vincent's Self-Made Man would be another interesting read for you. (She tries living as a man for a period of time.) Finally, if you aren't aware, Cassie Jaye is on Patreon; she releases there first her "Red Pill Raw Files," which are publicly available somewhat later on her YouTube channel. There are some fascinating extended conversations that didn't make it into the film.

    [–] An idiot and a feminist have a conversation JestyerAverageJoe 3 points ago in TumblrInAction

    the patriarchy's fault

    But you still believe in this conspiracy theory? The patriarchy as described by feminism does not exist.

    [–] What’s the biggest misconception about what a healthy relationship should look like? JestyerAverageJoe 15 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago) in AskMen

    "Happy wife, happy life."

    Edit for the downvoters: If you think that describes a healthy relationship, you are fucking delusional.

    [–] As a female, how can I advocate for the rights of men and boys? JestyerAverageJoe 3 points ago in MensRights

    First off, I'm very sorry for the sexual assault you experienced. That's horrible.

    In what way do MRAs put feminists on the defensive? I believe you're right, but I don't understand why -- beyond my simple observation that feminism is rife with unchallenged misandry.

    Regarding the patriarchy: It's quite simple. It's a conspiracy theory. :-) Despite all the ample evidence against it and the paltry evidence of its existence, nonetheless feminists continue to use it as a boogey man to explain away all of their personal failures. It's much easier to blame men than to admit that you simply made poor choices, I guess. If you can sleep at night demonizing half the human race.

    May I ask you a question?

    I used to be a feminist, but after thinking logically about issues and doing some research and reading, I realized females have many privileges that aren't given to men.

    How were you able to realize this, when so many feminists seem unable to?

    In other words, how or why does feminism seem to engender such blindness and lack of empathy towards men?

    Moreover, why are so many feminists convinced that MRAs want to infringe upon women's rights? We merely want equality and for our issues to be acknowledged too.

    1. Welcome!
    2. Thank you for having an open mind.
    3. Have you watched the film The Red Pill? This should be your introduction.

    [–] Do attractive men get hit on as much as we think they do? How do you react to compliments? JestyerAverageJoe 2 points ago in AskMen

    It sounds dismissive and mocking of this sub's subscribers at this point. Anytime an issue is raised that involves men feeling like they drew the short straw, the mods give us the finger.

    [–] Ex-Google recruiter: I was fired because I resisted “illegal” diversity efforts JestyerAverageJoe 1 points ago in technology

    Oh, you're just here to yell and fight? Closed-minded and ideological, just as I said? Yeah, not interested. Go blowhard to someone else.

    [–] Ex-Google recruiter: I was fired because I resisted “illegal” diversity efforts JestyerAverageJoe -1 points ago in technology

    I would never say that all liberally-minded people are this way. However, the proportion of liberals who are closed-minded and reject science when it conflicts with their chosen ideologies is far higher than it used to be, and increasing at a frightening rate. When the "left" has abandoned actual liberalism, the "right" has abandoned actual conservatism, and both sides are advocating for authoritarianism, something has gone horribly wrong.

    Before you get your panties in a twist, try not assuming what my politics are.

    It's amazing the way you believe that your emotional outburst is any sort of substantive disagreement. I remember a point in time at which liberally minded persons were open to science and reason, but sadly, you have all become subsumed in your feelings based idiocy. Keep driving that ideological wedge deeper and see what happens. A backlash is brewing. Enjoy the future consequences of your shortsighted, ideological idiocy. Feels over reals, I suppose, and hence your reply to my primate research with mere childish ad hominem screeching. You may actually accomplish something someday, novelly, in your life, although you never have, if you are willing to grow a second neuron and learn to think. How dare I present peer reviewed scientific research! You sound like a cultist in your paranoid cult of feminist delusion.
