I'm not a feminist or anything, but there has been a resent "explosion" of redicoulous questions about women and how they are being oppressive and how men should replace them and stuff. Has anyone else noticed this? I haven't come accross many "feminazis", and I have no doubt that there are some, but there are, to me, more MRAs recently that have decided to join G@G.
Please no rude comments because I was just asking a question.
Because there are some ways men are being oppresssed. Take domestic violence for an example. Look up on YouTube experimental comparisons between how men and women are treated by society when subject to domestic violence. People instantly stopped the man and threatened to call the cops, but no one said anything at all and some even laughed when the woman physically abused the man.
Although double standards are bad for both genders. Women have to deal with unjust slut-shaming and other problems. They're also more harshly judged for their looks so I'd say that both gender have it equal, but the point is there are ways men are being oppressed in the modern age, but same with women.
I have noticed this as well. It has gotten kind of irritating, to say the least. A lot of men wit there and complain about there being no good women left these days, just to turn around and talk about replacing them with sex dolls/sex robots. Its whatever though. If they want to replace women with dolls then I was gladly step aside and let them be the child that they are. I appreciate a good man. There are bigger numbers when it comes to good men here on G@G. Of course you have your select few salty men, but we have women like that on here as well. But the vast majority of men on here are good people. Its the ignorant people on here that give both men and women a bad name.
well for one thing... this isn't recent. GaG has a long history of guys like this running around. Actually, back in the earlier days, it was much worse. There were well known names of guys who were like this... names that I've forgotten now... but they would make it a daily routine to attack women for non sensical things. Now much of it is done anonymously, but its the same deal.
No some have illogical and stupid points but the vast majority have good points and advice for living a good life to most men even though it may appear misogyny to most women because they only wish to see their own twisted point of view which benefits them.
I haven't noticed a real change in GaG, the internet is full of red pill types and has been for... say 5+ years? Maybe closer to 10.
i guess it is growing, but not just here. Those views existed in pockets 5 years ago, now you go to standard mainstream discussion forums and they are full of it.
Online, MRA's seem to flood mainstream forums more than feminists do, while feminists focus more on there key sites. But men in general use internet forums more than women do. Partly though this reflects the fact that MRA/red pill is almost 100% internet based and anonymous, and attempts to hold even fairly reasonable, close to mainstream and balanced MRA type discussions in the real world have been shouted out of existence.
It's literally almost impossible to hold a lecture on whether boys are being discriminated against in our school system (leading to their far higher dropout rate) without the lecture being virtually shut down by protesters, at least where I live.
it was one of those people that made me leave GAG, he said we need to stand up for mens rights, which i totally agree with but not for womens rights even in places where its desperately needed like the middle east. After dealing with him i impulsively deleted my account took a break but came back.
because of the increase of feminists! they rant and rant about men and naturally the hostility is bouncing back on us! this is why i dont like the "feminist" movement at all... its causing such a divide. men and women should work together, we're not really all that different, but all the hostility and hate thats so prevalent now... its sad
I truly think its a combination of things: not getting laid, angry at women due to not getting any attention, life experiences being misconstrued as oppression, and a small number of facts that are blown out proportion.
It's easier to make those bitter woe-is-me comments online than in real life, so a site like G@G just concentrates the miserable people. It still seems like most of the people here are capable of basic empathy and normal interactions.
According to some men on here when they don't like my opinion I'm accused of being a feminist who hates when I really am not and I have stood up for men on here and real life so for some guys to tell me that is really messed up
I think it's always been this way. Just don't answer their questions, if you feel the person doesn't make sense. If it's actually interesting though, you can always learn something.
