Total BS. I would want to slap him in the face, right now.

There is no point in clicking this link and hate reading it. The PUA/MRA types that write these things are basically just trolls who want attention. They LOVE your anger and indignation, if they’re upsetting people, they believe you’re only angry because they’re “revealing the truth” you wanted to be hidden, and therefore that they must be correct. By reading & raging, you’re just feeding the beast and making it stronger.

I just found it a bit bizarre, to be honest. I genuinely couldn’t understand where he was coming from, and he seemed like a fantasist with very little connection to reality. It was like he was speaking Spanish. His experiences of women, and life, were so completely alien to my own that I didn’t get it.

I think you only get offended if you recognise some element of truth in what this guy says, or some prejudice that you have encountered… but I don’t understand him enough to be offended, really.

I did agree a bit when he said that most women haven’t earned their place in the world and are not exceptional… but then, most men are exactly the same, IME. His comments about women in the workplace were simply odd… for one thing, most doctors and medical professionals I know are female, so if they all died tomorrow then we’d be pretty screwed as a society.

I cannot believe this guy actually exists – his blog was so redic I laughed my way through.

@Atalanta:  Fantasy is far from reality. That is how you explain it. There are many things that people fantasize about, but don’t actually want to happen in real life.

@Atalanta:  I found the popularity of that book bizarre as well. Does. Not. Compute.

Plus, that book is really ****. I didn’t realise quite how **** until I tried to read it. It’s not as bad as the Da Vinci Code, but it’s pretty awful. I didn’t finish it.

@Atalanta:  I really enjoyed Fifty Shades of Grey, I am not really into S&M AT ALL, except maybe loose handcuffs and light spanking, and I still felt sick reading that article about how women should have low self esteem.

@futuremrsk18:  That’s the guys whole argument that women want to be treated like that.  That makes it consensual.

I’m not agreeing with the author personally at all but I also think the fact about the bestselling book is a quite tragic, and I do see the similarities.
