Some people like manly men, but the chicks at FMH sure don't. Nope, they like men who apologize for having a Y in the last pair of their chromosomes and admit it is an intrinsic flaw. So when a manly man, one who is not apologizing for having an outie instead of an innie, stands up and has the nerve to point out that women in general are not suited to armed combat, he is attacked for it. Quimby jumps all over him with the classically brilliant, totally unassailable (among this audience) logic of impugning his wiener. Yup. Naturally, this is a popular tactic, and others immediately join in. The whole thing then devolves into to the prototypical idiotic tirade of irrational misattribution, straw men and vain attempts on the manly man's part to intelligently explain his position while having his position distorted.
Of course, JohnR steps into the vomitorium and takes advantage of the situation to shoehorn in some brown nosing on Quimby, while insulting the manly man, blaming him for all the vomit the gals have spewed up.
He might have had a tough time getting dates in ancient Rome, but on FMH this guy would fit right in. Move over JohnR, you have some competition.
In any other forum discussing some other topic in a similar fashion, someone like Quimby would be quickly assailed as an irrational extremist who's views do not represent the mainstream. But not on FMH, where she is repeatedly praised for her ranting diatribes and irrelevant tangents that play on standard feminist rhetoric. If you ever wanted to see what a frustrated, angry, unhappy woman looks like online, here she is. The saddest thing is the women there at FMH are spurring her on in her miserable, irrational rants that run ad nauseam.
Thanks, I think, to anonymous for pointing out this week's Festival of Contention. Since I am not a masochist, I don't read FMH.
