Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

As seen on HoF

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by lumberjack_jeff (a host of the Men's Group group).

The usual suspects over at HoF are quick to label anything or anyone who doesn't agree with them as sexist, and/or misogynist, yet they can't even recognize those traits among themselves and among the filth they perpetuate.

Jezebel.com is quickly becoming one of their go-to sites, despite becoming increasingly sexist bordering on misandry. This article was posted here on HoF. Notice the caption on the picture is "Fuck the Patriarchy", which of course means 'fuck men'. If you don't think this is a fair assessment, all you have to do is read farther down the article to find

Ashley Judd's face is puffy because Ashley Judd is sick and on fucking steroids, you intrusive, judgmental dicks.


The really funny part (and not funny haha) is that the article cited as evidence a piece which evidently started the whole thing. This article was written by a woman, and published in a magazine which caters to women, but that doesn't stop them from blaming "teh patriarchy" and men in general.

Notice how an unfamiliar woman wanders in on the discussion and calls bullshit.

She is immediately labeled a right wing plant, threatened with banning, and an is accused of being one of the worst things you can possibly be, a man.

I'm sure the irony escapes them.

3. Well, it's nice they have a place

where they can marinade in their mutual admiration. Would that we were all easily satisfied.

6. I'm sure there were other gossip outlets spinning the "controversy" before this one

But who reads gossip mags and watches gossip TV shows? While I'm sure there are a few men out there who care if Ashley Judd's face is 1mm thicker this month compared to last, I just can't see there being too many.

8. It bugs me too.

But what they're saying today in HoF should not be item #1 in the list of "topics of interest to men".

I'm going to lock this because a) we have to coexist in the battle for one of the biggest elections in our lives, and b) if others are intent on irrelevance and self-immolation, I don't want this group to become collateral damage.

Alert if you see sexism or abusive behavior then let the jury do their job.

That said, I think it would be useful to post a commentary on the Jezebel article without the focus on other DU'ers.

Locking because HoF is not a topic of interest to men.
