Is there another men's group?

I see in so many recent threads that the Men's Group is the cause of so many troubles but having watched the group here for the last couple of months, there's not all that much activity at all. Is it all done in the shadows or something?

1. Well,

the denizens of the men's group don't use it quite so much as a Meta forum for complaining about the denizens of other groups. One of the other groups seems to exist for that purpose.

2. It serves more as a convienient scapegoat for those who need such things

There are in fact two feminist groups which is quite interesting when you start trying to figure out why.

5. One thing they can't abide is those splitters in the Judean People's Front.

 

The apparent purpose is to enable one to criticize the opinions of anyone - regardless of the actual opinions held - on the basis that those opinions are anti feminist.

Since the two feminist camps are on many (if not most) issues 180 apart, any opinion will offend one or the other.

3. The one where we objectify women in bathing suits?

Sorry, I've been pledged to secrecy.

4. No.

 

But in the bowels of DU, it's apparently considered one too many.

6. That's what gets me.

I've read so many threads lately where it's always pointing to here as the root of all problems (and yes, I see the same said about HoF), but the two groups are so very different in terms of actual use and activity. There's just not much going on here and it seems weird for it to be called out like that so often.

7. Once you've cut away all the healthy tissue, one can finally acknowledge where the tumor lies.

 

But by then there's little point.

8. Nope....

What you see is what you get. For some people, however, it's what they perceive is what they think they know and for still others, what they blatantly lie about is what they push.

9. Much like the shadow government

You go out the back door in the lounge and down some steps to the tunnels and end up somewhere near the bowels of hell. Seriously.

12. It's a great way to avoid actual call outs.

While avoiding any real discussion. It's obvious and fools no one without an ax to grind.

17. The DU Racist Heteropatriarchy's secret hideout is the Languages and Linguistics group.

 

You can find your secret decoder ring in any package of BeanBoozled jellybeans.

I thought we were plotting DU's demise in Weather Watchers.

19. No, but with the relentless attacks, one would think

we are behind the MRA movement, White Rights and everything else.

Every single "crime" against women on this site is added to the name of the Men's Group.

20. I've been sold a dud here! Where's all the goofy little pics?

I was told in GD that the Men's Group is where people learn how to post goofy little pictures. At the very least I thought I'd find a thread titled: "How to post goofy images designed to demean and dismiss', but instead there's nothing.

I'm finding it all a bit of a letdown, to be honest. Get yr act together, guys!!

23. Honestly, it's not secret wisdom. Our ancestors knew how to post goofy little ASCII pics

back when DU -4.0 was running on a Kaypro and a 300 baud modem with those little rubber phone cups.

Nay, the posting of the goofy little pictures is hardly a jedi secret exclusive to this place.

Now, finding the perfect animated gif to express one's near-perpetual exasperation with DU... yeah, that shizz is a bit trickier.
