I don’t even know how to respond except to say that this “man” (and I’m using that term VERY loosely) clearly has his own self-esteem issue and I hope one day he gets some flesh-eating bacterial disease on his d*ck that causes it to fall off.
ETA: Seriously, I read this and felt like throwing up, especially seeing how many people are agreeing with him in the comments, even women. Sick. SICK. Especially the comments about rape.

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.

@OrchidsandCandles: ugh wow, that made me feel so much better – what a GREAT response.
@goldfish2308: i want to kick him in the crotch
@Bebealways: i felt that way for about a second, but also felt like i needed to share bc its important that women realize that there are still men like this and to overcome it.

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.

Well one person in the comments did make a fair point:
And for those of you who think that isn’t what they want, explain this to me:

@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.

Well SOMEONE has mommy issues.

@Chrysoberyl: that’s how I felt at first!
@Atalanta: I’m sorry, but enjoying a bit of S&M, dominating, being spanked, etc. is NOT the same as “wanting” to be an unvalued, abused human being in a “man’s world.” How that’s even the same in anyone’s mind is beyond me. One is consensual, the other is abused. I like my fair share of consensual spanking, on my own terms. If FI told me to go make him a sandwich for work and spanked me on the ass on his way out to his “so important” job and left me at home to cook and clean – I can’t finish this sentence, because that would just never happen. Do I make sandwiches for him? Sure. Because I want to. And he does things for me, too. It’s just not even close to being the same.

@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.
