It’s National Offend A Feminist Week 2012

10 May

Of course, one may well ask, when isn’t it Offend A Feminist Week, since all 52 weeks a year they seem to be offended by one thing or another.

But Robert Stacy McCain informs us, that on this particular week, it’s time to really stick it to them.  (Hat Tip: DYSPEPSIA GENERATION).  With any luck, a few of their heads will explode from their rage.

Several blogs have participated, of course.

I thought I’d have an open thread on the subject here, where we can share jokes, and humourous links, images, etc.  (No porn, please, though cheesecake is fine.  And no ‘jokes’ that are so nasty that they’re not even funny; use your discretion – jokes that reference black eyes or welts or the like aren’t welcome.  Thanks.)

I’ll start with a classic joke:

Q: How many men does it take to open a beer?

A: None. It should be open when she brings it to you.

Over to y’all.  Have at ‘er!

*Update: See also my later post “Humour Interlude: Offend a Suffragette Edition” for more ‘offensive’ goodness.

    @ David: Yes, it’s kinda creepy; as if we should see hot young stewardesses as mother figures. Of course, when we fantasize about nurses, don’t we do a little of the same thing? 🙂

    Yeah, funny how what we think of as a room disinfectant and deodorant, was originally marketed to disinfect and deodorize much smaller, far different kinds of spaces. 😉

    What’s the difference between a joke and three dicks?

    Feminists can’t take a joke.

    HuffPo published these recently (I think), for their readership to hate on, no doubt.

    Sorry to be a bit of a party-pooper, but I fear some of these “jokes” offend more than just the feminists, and wonder whether some of them are altogether appropriate for a Christian website (some of the pictures are sexually suggestive, one takes the Lord’s name in vain, and I can’t see what being demeaning actually achieves the stated aim of not being nasty).

    “How many feminists does it take to change a light bulb, 12…” is genuine satire, the ads are mixed, the flapper… probably says a lot more about Victorian ideals than anything else, but I like it as it’s still satire.

    And meh. How many women does it take to open a bottle of beer? Who cares. REAL men open their OWN beers.

    (Hope I’m not being too problematic here.)

    We do try to avoid taking the Lord’s name in vain, but can’t say we care that some pics are suggestive; you’re not going to find outright porn here, by any means, we won’t post that.

    By not being nasty, I am referring to outright laughing at real violence or rape; we won’t do that, or tolerate anyone attempting to post such.

    As for the beer bottle, same deal as with the barbecuing woman barely dressed: the point was just to have fun tweaking feminists; yes, I can open my own beer, and I’d rather barbecue than have a woman do it, but we were just having fun tweaking them.

    Listen, we are not the typical afraid-to-be-slightly-ribald, pussywhipped, wife-ruled ‘Christian’ men; we are men of the old-fashioned variety here, who will say whatever the hell we want, regardless of what others may think. Old strong religion, not pussywhipped evangelicalism, or poncy effeminate C of E types.

    This is a place for men who already ARE real men, and we don’t need anyone lecturing us as to what constitutes one.

    We will not stand for being lectured by any visitors as to what we should say or do, or shouldn’t say or do. Go read our rules in the About section, at the top. Afterwards, conduct yourself accordingly, if you wish to participate here.

    If not, go somewhere else. Or risk getting ‘Baahammered’ (see the rules in the About section).

    I don’t even see the Lord’s name taken in vain, in any of the pics, unless you mean the one that says ‘Gosh’, which isn’t God’s name; it’s a mild substitute. ‘Gosh’ is not ‘God’; ‘darn’ is not ‘damn’… If you can find another, worse example, I’ll consider if it’s real, and if it is, I may consider removing it, certainly. But I couldn’t find any, after a quick scan.

    Honestly, if that’s the one you mean, I truly think you’re not going to find this place to your liking. We’re real men here, not ones who can be bludgeoned into conformity by some random visitor who bothers to drop by to bitch about really old posts.

    For the record my joke wasn’t meant as any sort of lecturing on what constitutes a “real man”- merely to illustrate I have a different approach to what I consider funny, whilst trying to prove I wasn’t being entirely a humourless bastard. I will concede I do take these things rather too seriously, perhaps, and I’ll apologise if I’m trying to hard to spoil the fun or giving anyone the wrong end of the stick. I imagine much of the humour is meant to be ironic (even the beer bottle one), of course, and quite a few of the ads themselves (referencing gender roles, which I realise many feminist types get bothered by for no real reason) can be pretty funny to me in that regard. As are any jokes which are plain satirical. I’m not too sure I see the funny side of winding people up just for its own sake, though. Humour in this vein I think tends to work better when it’s pointing out the flaws of the people you’re arguing against, not necessarily more.

    Also, the taking the Lord’s name in vain wasn’t the pics or one of yours, it was a joke another poster made referencing creation.

    I’m not trying to make any particular demands about how you run your blog and what you say on it, by the way- that’s your business at the end of the day. However, if as you claim part of being a man in the old-fashioned sense involves saying what you think without reservation, I see no problem in at least offering an opinion: that being that some of what’s been posted by certain people seems to go a bit far, not sure how much I find funny, and that I’m not too sure ribladry need have anything to do with not being pussywhipped, so much as that I understood that Scripture admonished against such. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong, and to take my POV as you will.

    (Also for the record another one I found funny was the one of the “woman’s place is near her husband, not near the sink”- it does something quite original with the stereotypes…)

    Oh, you were making a joke. Whatever.

    Yeah, I guess we do have differing ideas on what constitutes humour. C’est la vie.

    Winding up people on the other side might give one of them an aneurysm, which would be very funny, indeed. >:-)

    If a feminist falls in the forest and no one is around to see it, is it still the fault of the patriarchy?

    No doubt. It’s like that line in the country song, “If a tree fell in the forest, and she didn’t hear it, would I still be wrong?” 🙂
