Last Monday, Frost published a guest article of mine, “Saving Women from Themselves,” in which I argued that the manosphere truly loves women because we want to guide them towards happier and more fulfilling lives. I checked back in that evening to see that the post had erupted into a real shitstorm, with feminists aggressively Tweeting about the post in shock and horror, as well as leaving snotty comments:
@DeathToHamsters @realmattforney See, because the implication that I, or any woman, needs rescuing from feminism is the saddest shit ever. (link) @DeathToHamsters @realmattforney The suggestion I need to be saved from *myself* and my own choices is not only offensive but dangerous. (link) @NatalieZed @deathtohamsters @realmattforney Jesus Christ that was the most transparently apologist pro-misogyny bullshit I’ve ever read. (link)
This post by
@realmattforney takes the cake for worst, most offensive & clueless opinion about women. http://flpbd.it/BHSyA (via @NatalieZed) (link)
When I read articles like the one I just linked to, I thank fuck I don’t know people like that IRL, or I’d literally go on a killing spree. (link)
Maybe I don’t want help? Maybe the men who don’t know me personally and keep trying to ‘help’ me are actually doing me a disservice? Maybe I’m a woman who has a brain and common sense and feels completely patronized by any ‘help’ she might be offered by men? Maybe I’m a woman is doing the best she can with the circumstances given her, and the ‘help’ from men actually makes her self-esteem crumble a bit? Perhaps I’m a woman who has done very well for herself for the last 39 years *all by herself*?
And why is it that it’s okay for men to ‘help’ women, but it’s absolutely silly for women to ‘help’ men? (link)
If I said you’re an ignorant schmuck, would you hold it against me, because I don’t hate you, I only want you to be a better person?
But yeah, this is so unbelievably insulting and condescending toward women you have to be coming at it from either never having known or spoken to a women your entire life, or are just an awful person.
Have a good day.
