Wisconsin Abortion Bill Lets Sad Daddies Sue If Their Sacred Sperm Is Wasted

Yes, yes, he's from Texas, whatever. So sue for emotional damage.
Gosh, is there anything that could be more awful about Wisconsin’s new abortion bill? How about a provision giving men the right to sue doctors for “emotional and psychological distress” when their precious genetic material is cruelly aborted after 20 weeks? Yep, that’s pretty sucky. Wouldn’t it be enough just to give the guy a copy of the mandatory ultrasound, since those pictures are such joyous occasions?

Men’s Rights Dude Tells Fox & Friends Why Marriage Is A Scam To Take His Man-Money

Won't someone please think of the men?
Tuesday’s Fox & Friends had a pretty darned exciting segment with “Men’s Rights” dweeb Peter Lloyd, who calls himself a “suffragent,” and has written a book called Stand By Your Manhood, all about why men should never get trapped into marriage, which is BAD. It wasn’t quite the orgy of feminist-bashing that Fox might have hoped for, but heaven knows they tried.

Gamergate ‘Documentary’ Derailed By Sad, We Mean ‘Hilarious,’ Men’s Rights Slapfight

no, YOU take it back!
“Gamergate” is basically about telling stupid women they need to shut up and stop trying to ruin videogaming culture by being feminists. It’s featured a parade of horribles, like death and rape threats and really tragic crimes against logic. There’s a fair bit of overlap between the Gamergaters and the “Men’s Rights Activists” crowd, because both have the important mission of keeping women from emasculating real people and imposing lesbian communist tyranny on the world. But today we are pleased to bring you a Gamergate story that isn’t about horrible vicious online smears of women. Instead, it’s about a couple of these terrible He-Man Women Haters Club dorks going to war with each other, and it is a beautiful thing.

Deleted Comments: Alas, We Have Offended A Sensitive Soul (Or Men’s Rights Activist, Same Difference)

To The Management: Please correct this image. I would never use Courier. On second thought, never mind. You'd just replace it with Comic Sans.
Your Wonkette isn’t perfect, lord only knows, and when we err, we seek to make amends. Which brings us to this very important message from our comments queue, from “jrayhawk” (please, no Ray Jay Johnson jokes), who felt that we treated the subject of a recent story quite shabbily. Friday, we ran a story about several important developments in gender relations, including the sad tale of Scott Aaronson, a professor at MIT who has pretty much had it with how feminists have criminalized every last aspect of male sexuality. Jrayhawk felt that we failed to give Aaronson an even break because we sided with the mean women instead of with their victim: Read more on Deleted Comments: Alas, We Have Offended A Sensitive Soul (Or Men’s Rights Activist, Same Difference)…

How Are The Feminists Keeping Men From Getting Laid Today?

Guess he taught that cuni a lesson.
Nothing like kicking off 2015 with a few stories about how bad men have it in today’s modern feminist-dominated world, where men are on the verge of being ruined by all these radical feminists running loose and running everything, but still not doing sex to the Men’s Rights Activists for some reason.

Deleted Comments Of The Day: You Guys Aren’t Funny. Check Out Some Funny Conservative Satire

And how long have you had these feelings of persecution?
Time for more sludge from our comments queue, and we’ll have you know it was no easy task hosing off our keyboard after this visit. First up, a note from “NasalVacuum,” who we assume must be former Florida Rep. Trey Radel. NasalVacuum was not impressed with our little mommyblog, recipe trading post, and clopfic nexus; and was particularly disappointed by our story last week about the clinical psychologist who’s obsessed with Sandra Fluke’s totalitarian vagina. Problem is, it just wasn’t FUNNY. Here is NasalVacuum’s objective assessment: Yikes! This is what passes for writing on Wonkette? Just awful. The writer might want to look at the Daily Rash and learn a few things about satire and humor. This tripe was painful to read and I didn’t even get to the end without screaming. But I’m a nice person so here’s a link to real satire and I wish you the best. No, really. The email closed with a link to hilarious conservative fake-news site The Daily Rash, whose top story right now is (hope you’re sitting down) this bit of inspired whimsy: “Al Qaeda Jihad Magazine ‘Inspire’ Publishes Its First Swimsuit Issue.” Get it? It’s funny, ’cause radical Muslims make ladies wear burqas! Read more on Deleted Comments Of The Day: You Guys Aren’t Funny. Check Out Some Funny Conservative Satire…

Men’s Rights Activists Gather To Fight Misandry, Drink Some Brews, Bro Out

Too bad we haven’t yet made our big move to Detroit, because this International Conference on Men’s Issues that was held there this weekend sounds like a total hoot. Who wouldn’t have fun in a roomful of angry shut-ins embittered because the harlot to whom they had entrusted their bank accounts and their mighty seed took the kids and all the money and went to live at her sister’s place in Des Moines? Attendees numbered in the low three figures, though we’re not sure if media figures are included in the count. Among the poor bastards who got to expense a lovely summer weekend in Detroit was MSNBC’s Adam Serwer, who should receive some sort of medal for sitting through this: Read more on Men’s Rights Activists Gather To Fight Misandry, Drink Some Brews, Bro Out…

Deleted Comments Of The Day: Why All The Hatin’ On MRAs, Wonkette Dude?

We have nine million comments backed up in the queue, and they are just precious! We will make an effort to bring you as many of these “real characters” as we can in the next few installments of yr Dear Shitferbrains. Let’s see what frothy goodness the internet has left lapping up against the sides of our comment holding tank, shall we? To start with, we heard from a number of Men’s Rights Advocates who were quite put out indeed by our story Wednesday about an MRA group that crowdfunded $25,000 for extra security at a dumb convention they’re having in Detroit, because the hotel required them to have it, citing unspecified threats it had received. Our story did not sit well with would-be commenter “ARenMan,” who called us out on our unspeakable double standards: Oh! But if a big scary man looks at my boobs #YesAllMen But if feminists make terrorists make death threats against a legal, peaceful gathering . . . um . . . #YesAllMen Darn those well-organized feminist terrorists! Now, we of course do not think death threats are a laughing matter, at least depending on spelling. Read more on Deleted Comments Of The Day: Why All The Hatin’ On MRAs, Wonkette Dude?…

Oh, Guess Who Else Is Super Into The Whole ‘Men’s Rights’ Platform? (It Is Fox ‘Psychiatrist’ Keith Ablow)

Glabrous scurf-picker Keith Ablow, who somehow maintains an on-air presence with Fox News despite being the worst psychiatrist in the world, devoted some quality Fox & Friends time Wednesday to the important issue of how the womens are just too uppity. You might think this would be a poor choice of topic just a few days after a California misogynist killed six people and himself because he believed women control men’s sexuality, but this is Fox News, for heaven’s sake, and besides, those murders happened because of the ghey.

Deleted Comments Of The Day: Retro Nostalgia Wayback Edition

One of the fun things about curating the comment queue is that we occasionally get brand-new comments on posts that are weeks or months old — such is the nature of the interwebs and search engines. And so today, we are delighted to bring you a Dear Shitferbrains comprising recent outrage over stuff that was originally written some time back. There’s no expiration date on stupid!

Deleted Comments of The Day: Birthers, Purity Trolls, And More!

As the custodian of the comments queue, Yr Doktor Zoom sometimes gets a bit jaded — another day, another bunch of lines from rightwing bumper stickers. Today, though, we came in for withering butthurt from a reader who wants us to know that Wonkette’s piece on the detention of Glenn Greenwald’s partner was very, very disappointing. We’re not entirely certain whether HTML-savvy commenter “andnbsp” is replying to another comment, or to the article as a whole, though we think it’s probably the latter: Being a backbiting little tone-policing fink is actually excellent liberalism, so I can’t, in good conscience, sneer at you for that. I reserve the right to sneer at you for being a terrible leftist, though, if you have ever considered that part of your political identity. We have been put in our place. And “andnbsp” is free to return to theirs, which most likely is firedoglake. Read more on Deleted Comments of The Day: Birthers, Purity Trolls, And More!…

Human Rights Hero Sues Sexist Gym Because Of Ladies-Only Yoga Classes

In yet another example of How Men Are Oppressed In These Difficult Times, Limey nutsack Peter Lloyd wrote a thing in the Daily Mail recently explaining that he is suing his gym because they have a certain number of hours for women only. It’s a shocking infringement of his Right To See Ladies In Spandex, because the women-only hours total a whopping 442 hours a year! This is actual Jim Crow oppression, Lloyd argues: It is “eerily reminiscent of when African Americans were separated from their caucasian peers in 1940s America.” Yes! A few women-only swimming classes per week is exactly like Bull Connor turning fire hoses on children in Birmingham, because both involve water! Also, we must note that “Birmingham” is also the name of a city in England, and England is sometimes caricatured as “John Bull” — there’s just no end of eerie parallels!

‘Progressive’ Fellow In ‘Men’s Rights Movement’ Has Inspirational Posters For Manly Men

Here is something that the Internet went and puked up on our digital doorstep a few days back: a collection of Microsoft Office-based editorial artwork designed to provide inspiration and motivation to “The Manosphere.” And what is the “Manosphere?” We’ll let the anti-MRA blog Manboobz do the ‘splainin: The Manosphere: The loose collection of blogs, message boards, and other sites run by and/or read by MRAs [“Men’s Rights Advocates”], MGTOW [“Men Going Their Own Way: a lot like lesbian separatism, but for straight dudes.”, and assorted friendly Pick-up Artists. [Link added by your Doktor Zoom] So, yeah, basically creeps. But creeps who have a mission in life, which is, apparently, to get laid (but not trapped in a marriage) while also reversing the damage done to America and to Manhood itself by feminism. Oh, and to shame sluts for being so slutty, but not slutty enough to fuck them. Read more on ‘Progressive’ Fellow In ‘Men’s Rights Movement’ Has Inspirational Posters For Manly Men…

Bummed-Out Iowa Republican Withdraws Amendment To Drug Test Any Moms Who Get Child Support

Iowa state Senator Mark Chelgren was laughed out of the room just because he tried to amend a Health and Human Services budget bill to include drug-testing all divorced moms if their exes who pay them child support demand it. Man, divorced dads get no respect! We are not sure if “demand drug testing for that bitch” is on this list of tips on “how to minimize child support” from fathersrights.org, because all the crazytown typefaces stabbed our eyeballs, but it certainly should be!
