"There is no misandry on DU"

Make jokes about the size of men's genitalia? Fine. Prison rape jokes? Celebrated.

Suggest that one of the biggest misandrists on DU has ulterior motives? Hide.

At Mon Dec 24, 2012, 11:44 AM, an alert was sent on the following post:

Are you sure you weren't really trying to hide the phrase "bitch session"


This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate. (See <a href="http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=aboutus#communitystandards" target="_blank">Community Standards</a>.)


Pab has two posts in this thread. In each one he is trying to support the OP's efforts to re-start sexism wars by attacking feminists.

Disruptive, rude, over the top.


A randomly-selected Jury of DU members completed their review of this alert at Mon Dec 24, 2012, 12:09 PM, and voted 4-2 to HIDE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: This is the nature of conversation and opinion. This is what will push women to get out and support the ERA, and stop the sexism. Don't censure, call it what it is! Sexism! One good turn deserves another. This is a political discussion board. What do you expect? It's the dirtiest game in the world. Not for the over sensitive types.
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT and said: I agree with the alerter. This post is rude and disruptive.
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT and said: Low. Clean up your act Pab.

The "sexism wars" never ended. A certain bloc on DU is allowed to attack men with impunity. Even legitimate criticism of any woman for any reason is seen as "misogyny" and attacked viciously.

Some completely honest and well intended questions.

Gun advocates, I am sincere when I ask you this.

What can we do to stop these killings?

I've been trained to shoot. I believe in the right to keep and bear arms. I believe in the right to self defense. I accept hunting as a source of food and as a sport. There are legitimate uses for guns, and I believe in the Second Amendment.

But dear God, something has to be done.

In one week we've seen three mass shootings - one of which killed over a dozen children - and at least two more thwarted that we know of.

This cannot become the new normal. This is not acceptable.

What are the answers? How can we respond? How do we prevent this sort of thing in the future?

If we can't find solutions to this, then the obvious and distasteful one is likely to be forced upon us.

Can we talk about the existence of misandry on DU for a change?

There are a few posters on here who, let's face it, are just anti-men. I'm not talking about anti-misogynist or anti-sexist, I mean they just honestly seem to be anti-men.

We know their names. The ones who take any criticism of any woman ever as misogyny. The ones who feel that men can do nothing right. The ones who assume that any joke must have a deep-seeded hatred of women at its core.

We saw it during the early S.E. Cupp threads. We see it now with the LOLCat massacre. We will see it again.

We've started to address the racist, antisemitic, anti-Islamic, misogynistic, and homophobic veins on this board. Can we now start to address the misandrist tendencies, too?
