In what we can only assume is a pitch for a bizarre remake of “Over The Top” starring himself, Pastor Stephen L. Anderson is putting a call out for women to come arm wrestle him. Why? Because he is pretty sure he can beat them, and that this beating of them in arm wrestling will totally prove that men are superior to women, once and for all.

In a recent sermon at his Faithful Word Baptist Church, located in a Tempe, Arizona, strip mall, Pastor Anderson complained that he keeps getting all these emails and phone calls like, every day, about how he is a misogynist just for believing that men are superior to women and should be in control of all the things. Weird!

Pastor Anderson suggests that this word, misogynist — which dates back to Ancient Greece, though often to refer to gay men to suggest that they wanted to bang dudes because they hated women — is a very recent invention. So recent, that he, a 34-year-old man, never even heard this newfangled trendy word as a child! Which is weird because we are about the same age and that word is not new to me at all, as my absurdly sexist elementary school music teacher could attest.

He then blathered on about how God wants men to be in charge, and that’s the way of the world, and women actually want men to be in charge of stuff because they are “not wired to want to be in charge and rule over a man” and WAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH a bunch of other stuff about how he wants to be in charge of stuff cause he has a penis.

He then dug deep into the etymology of the word, suggesting that “miso” is a prefix meaning “bad.” Which it isn’t! It is a prefix meaning “hatred of” — like misanthropy or even misosophist, a person who hates knowledge and wisdom, or misogrammatist, a person who hates having to learn words.

Finally, after all of that, he revealed the real reason why he knew for sure that men were better than women! And it is because, as we mentioned earlier, he can beat them in arm wrestling! And lots of women have challenged him at arm wrestling, and he has beat them all. Including his wife, whom he says he made arm wrestle him once.

This, naturally, raises the question — why are we even bothering having a Presidential election? Why do we not just make John Brzenk, whom Google tells me is the best arm wrestler in the WORLD, dictator for life? He should obviously be in charge of all the things, because he is the best at arm wrestling. Also, another person Google says is the best arm wrestler in the world is Russia’s Irina Makeeva, who is A WOMAN. So if she beat Pastor Stephen L. Anderson in arm wrestling, would she get to tell him what to do and be in charge of things?

It seems there are actually quite a lot of professional female arm wrestlers, and probably all of them can beat Pastor Anderson, so I think we all need to start hoping that one of them gets wind of this challenge and accepts it, which would probably mean he’d have to shut up about this weird thing forever (he says this is the sixth time he has challenged women to this), and probably also buy them a new semi-truck.

    How about a test on ability to withstand pain? Your task, Pastor Steve, is to pass a 6-pound kidney stone.

  • Daisy

    Can we send back to English class to learn Latin and Greek nomenclature, please?

  • Gayer Than Thou

    Mark my words: if Irina Makeeva challenges him to an arm wrestle and beats him, his argument will shift subtly from “the fact that no woman can beat me in arm wrestling proves all men are superior” to “the fact that this woman can beat me in arm wresting proves there’s something wrong with her.”

      I’d love to sic my youngest child on him. She’s a competitive, ranked weightlifter ( and was prom queen.). She crushes her male, adult cousins. (And she’s nice and polite and would thank him after kicking his ass.). ?

    • chimichanga

      Nothing wrong with her. It’s just hard to get a grip on his tiny hands.

    No wonder fewer Americans than ever identify as “Christian” any more.

  • Liam

    Where I grew up in upstate New York there is a proffesional women’s arm wrestling league. These girls are completely over the top (here hee), where they have costumes and it is a total WWE like event. Either way maybe the pastor should head up to NY and see how he fairs.

  • Hairstrike Alpha

    He should just challenge women to have a better beard than him….but he’d lose that one too once people point at Michele Bachmann as being the biggest beard anyone has seen.

  • Crystalclear12

    I will arm wrestler him as soon as he births a child from his loins.

    • Ducksworthy

      Modern science could soon make that possible. Lets sign him up now.

    “… which would probably mean he’d have to shut up about this weird thing forever …”

  • Lizzietish81

    This reminds me of the time my sister and I were at a friend’s party and one of his other friends kept making whipping noises when she said we had to leave soon because her husband wanted her home by x time. Another friend could not stop laughing because he’s met them.

    So this guy kept going on until his wife, who had been sitting quietly next to him throughout all this said in a quiet voice “Get me a beer”

    Bam! he was up and gone to the cooler.

    • Suttree

      So is this where you learned that potty mouth “Go get your fucking own beer!”? My masculinity still hasn’t recovered!

    • Thaumaturgist

      Lizzie, you got that wrong. Harvesting a beer is like hunting. It’s masculinity. All the way.

      • Doug Langley

        And beer can be very dangerous if only wounded.

    BTW, anyone else getting the “Christ, it’s only Monday” vibe?

  • AngryBlakGuy

    …ahhhh yes, nothing shows how far we have progressed as a species than a “might makes right” thought process!!! In that case can I just show up to the nice pastors house, punch him in the face and take his wife as my own?!

    • Good_Gawd_Yall

      Do you have your wife’s permission? Then yes.

      • AngryBlakGuy

    Upon reflection, though, I think he has a point. There are a lot of issues – personal, local, national, global, legal, scientific, economic, political, cultural – for which arm wrestling is not only the most obvious solution, but really, the only solution. Things like …

    • Doug Langley

      Go on.

  • Hairstrike Alpha

    I just hope it doesn’t end in the wrastlin’ ring because I quit watching wrasslin’ years and years ago and I don’t intend to start up watching again just to see this asshole get flattened. How about boxing? That would be fun, he can challenge any woman in the world to beat him up because as we all know, girls all punch and run like girls.

  • schmannity
    • Hairstrike Alpha

      Quite a few of them hit the roids really hard…you can see it in their faces. I don’t begrudge anyone who wants to be a bodybuilder but man, eventually you have to stop and ask yourself, “is it worth it to hit the ‘roids?” Everything I’ve read says, “sure if you want a heart attack or stroke at some point”

    • Blank Ron

      Somehow the bikini top just seems redundant now.

      • Jeff in the desert

        Gonna say, the boobs are the smallest part.

        • Señor Skwerl

          Wait until one of them punches you for saying that. The boobs that is.

  • baconzgood

    Meh. Kaufman already did that.

  • He hates women so much he demands that you call him a MISTERogynist. Thank you. I’m here all week.

    Sounds to me like this guy has an incredibly weird fetish and has found a unique way to service it.

    …what I’m saying is don’t shake his hand, you know where it has been.

  • Good_Gawd_Yall

    I’d feel sorry for his wife, except that she married him. That part seems inexplicable.

    • Callyson

      Sadly, self-hating women are a thing.

    • Doug Langley

      She had to marry him. She lost the contest.

  • efoveks

    Soooo “miso guapo”= I hate handsome people? Just sayin’ ?

    • Creepoman

      Maybe I need to brush up on my Latin, but I believe that means “I hate Japanese avocado soup.”

  • Arolpin

    You forgot my favorite (that I just made up): misomisoist, someone who hates that salty, poor-excuse-for-tofu-soup that comes with the damn sushi lunch special.

  • Callyson

    This is the same man who claimed that the shooting at the Orlando Pulse nightclub left “50 less pedophiles in this world.” Finding out he has regressive views towards women isn’t too much of a surprise.

  • Creepoman

    Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho approves this message.

    • Crystalclear12

      That was funnier before Trump.

  • Tallmutha

    Oh, like this guy isn’t going to be sucking up HGH like a sponge if any woman actually takes him up on it.

  • AngryBlakGuy

    …maybe that is how we should decide this election? Nah, Hillz would have an unfair advantage, being that she would be able to crush Trumps infant sized hands

  • Blank Ron

    My housemate is 67. She weighs 124 pounds and has advanced COPD. She could rip this twit’s arm off and feed it to him.

    • Thaumaturgist

      Would she cook his arm and put it in a sandwich before she feeds it too him?

      • Blank Ron

        Nah, I do most of the cooking these days, and I ain’t wasting a tomato on him.

  • Picabo

    That derpnado was an F5.

  • Ezio

    *Looks at picture* Oh it’s Steven Anderson, the same guy who said he was glad “there were less pedophiles in the world” after the Orlando club shooting. Trying to contain my shock.

    It’s people like this guy that make me almost embarrassed I call myself a Christian. They show no love, mercy or compassion and instead show nothing but hate, vitriol and are completely childish.

  • Wait, so if I beat this dude at arm wrestling (not to brag, but looking at him, then looking at me, that shouldn’t be a challenge), I can tell him to shut the fuck up and go the fuck away forever?

    Sign me up!

  • Juan de Fuca

    Pastor Anderson? There’s a Ms. Ronda Rousey who’d like to have a word with you.

    • Spotts1701

      And a Tia-Clair Toomey is in the lobby as well.

      • Juan de Fuca

        That’s a good point. Not sure if Ronda would beat him in an arm wrestling contest but she’d hurt that poor guy badly in a fight. I wouldn’t want to watch it.
        Tia-Clair Toomey would probably break his arm in an arm wrestling contest. Wouldn’t want to watch that either. *Ouch*

        • efoveks

          She’s got that one move that’ll break your arm if you don’t tap out first. Maybe she could demonstrate?

          I don’t want to see his arm broken, but I sure would like to see him tap out or say “uncle”!

          • Suttree

            I’m sure we could all settle for the good pastor to scream “I’m you’re bitch”.

  • anwisok

    I wonder if he is aware that arm wrestling matches can and do, sometimes, end with compound fractures of the loser’s arm? Not that I’d wish it on him, but – if a pro armwrestler decides to show up, he could be in for a whole WORLD of hurt!

    • Spotts1701

      Yup – I would suggest he watch the arm-wrestling scene in “The Fly” for more information on this phenomenon.

    I have joint damage, asthma, anxiety, and I haven’t been able to exercise regularly in months. This guy looks about the same weight as my boyfriend, who I can pick up, twirl around, and even throw a little bit (don’t ask me how I know that) so, does it have to be arm wrestling or can I just prove he’s a weakling compared to me?

    Slightly different topic, the average strength between men and women has a lot of overlap, which would have been a lot more obvious if there hadn’t been millennia of sexism in the way of scientific and social advancement.

  • Ms.MLG1979

    I have no doubt he could beat me at arm wrestling. I feel confident I could whoop dat ass so hard at anything involving actual thought. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I truly think the world and it’s inhabitants will be better off when we start using our heads instead of our muscles to solve our problems and make our progress. That’s what we’re moving toward, and it’s sad watching these dudebros make themselves even more irrelevant. By sad, I mean fucking hilarious.

      True story. I was in the weightlifting section of my gym, casually moving some 45lb plates to set up my equipment, when some yahoo attempted to “help” me. After I told him I didn’t need his help and he tried to insist, I just said: “If I didn’t want to lift weights, I wouldn’t come to the weightlifting section.”… I think I hurt his feelings…

    • Aquaria

      Funny, my husband is around to do laundry and put my shoes on me.

      Oh, and pickle jars.

  • AngryKatie

    I somehow saw part of the Olympic women’s weight lifting over the weekend (the snatch and the clean and jerk, who names these things?) and ALL of those ladies could beat him at arm wrestling.

    I vote we ask this woman from Thailand (Sopita Tanasan) to do it because she makes the most awesome/terrifying faces.

      …ok newb, us in the gym rat field simply call it the “clean and jerk”. Secondly the reason she is making that face is because every time you do that particular excersise the pain you feel in your legs is actually a part of your soul dying. God I hate that execersise with a passion!!!

    You need intellect, empathy, humor and sound judgement to lead, and if that ain’t enough for this morally bankrupt imbecile, I’ll just refer him to Bernie-sis Rhonda Rousey.

    My wife is not a fucking child. She is a grown woman who I married to be a partner and friend and who I trust to make decisions as an adult. I do not talk down to her and tell her not to do things like I would my daughters. Fuck you Stephen L. Anderson.

    • Beowoof14

      I remember reading some this guys sermons after this incident. And having 18 credits of philosophy and religion at my Catholic university, I recall thinking this dope has no idea what he is talking about when it comes to the Bible. Sort of disconnected rantings of someone who is/was completely insane.

    • Juan de Fuca

      Who does that? Who has that much time on their hands they decide challenging the Border Patrol is a cool thing to do. Like they don’t have anything else to do?

  • BadKitty904

    I suppose we should be grateful this Thumper-freek isn’t “challenging” women to pull his finger.

  • Tallmutha

    So if a man beat this guy at arm wrestling, would that man get to order the pastor around and fuck him?

    • BadKitty904

      I suspect he wishes…

  • Angela Ruzzo

    This reminds me of a joke I heard in high school. My apologies in advance to all the nice, smart men.
    Why do men have a penis? They need somewhere to keep their brains.

    • Alan

      My wife is a veterinarian. She had a girl scout group visiting while performing surgery. She was neutering a dog, dropped a testicle into the pan, and a little girl volunteered “it looks like a little brain”. Had to take a break to compose herself.

    • Objectifer

      God gave man a penis and a brain. But only enough blood to operate one at at time.

    If Pastor Limpdick is looking for “the ladies” for some arm-rasslin’, I think Venus and/or Serena Williams might be available. If not, someone can give Rhonda Rousey a call. And if he wants to wait a few weeks, I’m sure Simone Biles would be happy to kick his ass.

      We read Pygmalion in class 45 years ago, by which time it was already well known that Higgins was a misogynist.

      There’s only a couple of reasons why the young pastor could not have been aware of this word – the most likely being that no one in his household could fucking read.

  • Dr. Strangelove’s Child

  • YoBunnyBunny

    I wouldn’t arm wrestle him but I’d happily put him in a head scissor or just sit on his face.

    Btw, challenging women to upper-body strength contests is kind of a chump move. How about a lower-body strength contest? Now watch the barrel-chested man on twiggy legs get crushed…

    • handyhippie65

      “sit on his face”? that’s a line i would stand in. wait, what?

  • r_dale

    “…he wants to be in charge of stuff because he has a penis.” Objection! Assumes facts not in evidence.

    • Jerry Noneofyourbizz

      He wants to be in charge of stuff because he IS a penis.

  • Jen_Baker_VA

    I could take him. Set it up, I am down for that. I’ll give folks odds on timing- 20 seconds or less and he is crying into his manly beard.

    • Smokahontas

      You could take him. But I wonder why he won’t challenge us womenz to a sport where we already rule… cream corn rassling, Cole slaw rassling, laundry rustling. .. the list goes on.

  • Moonbat

    If I were an stereotyping, assumption making asshole, I’d say he lisps as though he has the gay pretty hard.

    • Me not sure

      You sound like a person with moxie.

      • Gregory Brown

        If you’re old enough and from the right part of the country you might be a person who drinks Moxie.

        • Me not sure

          Well, I’m old enough.

          • Gregory Brown

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moxie

            It started in the 19th century as Moxie Nerve Food. How do I know? I dug up aqua glass embossed blob top bottles from the late 1800s in an old dump, but in the northeast US it has been a popular soft drink time out of mind, and lent its name to a spirit of “moxie” as in spirited or gritty. It is flavored with gentian, a very bitter herb, but the sugar takes that away. I like Moxie; to me it tastes very much like rootbeer.

          • Me not sure

            I’ve tried it. I tend to see it in old fashion country store type places. Too sugary for me these days.

  • Me not sure

    Just thinkin’. Which is lower on the Lord’s pecking order, tent show preachers with the g(r)ift of healing or strip mall rasslers? Also too, where is the money better?

    • Vecchiojohn

      The real money is in snake handling.

      • Me not sure

        Cha-ching? … Snap!….OHMYGODIMGONNADIE!

        • Vecchiojohn

          Snakes in this business don’t last long. They’re drugged and all the handling kills them pretty fast.

          • Me not sure

            So, safer than being a butcher then.

      • Jerry Noneofyourbizz

        My gaydar senses that the kind of snake he wants to handle is not the same kind of snake you are talking about.

  • Vecchiojohn

    Where’s the 50 Foot Woman when you need her?

  • M.E. Lawrence

    I know! Once the Olympics are finished, let’s send Pastor Anderson over to Phoenix to take on the entire Phoenix Mercury. Diana Taurasi can wrassle him with one arm while shooting 3-pointers from center court; Brittney Griner can wrassle and rebound at the same time; and DeWanna Bonner (who weighs about as much as his bible) will smile radiantly as she wraps his arm around his neck and ties it in a bow. (Penny Taylor will just glare at him as she wrassles, because she is Penny Freakin’ Taylor, the pride of Melbourne, Australia, and no one fucks with her.) Etc. Now wouldn’t that make a nice fundraiser for Planned Parenthood Tempe?

    http://mercury.wnba.com/

    • Jukesgrrl

      Hot damn! And when he loses, let’s make him venerate the USA Women’s Basketball Olympic medal. Maybe if he has to worship a golden idol he’ll rapture himself right on the spot.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      Don’t Venus and Serena Williams get a shot at him?

      • M.E. Lawrence

        Excellent idea. And all the medal-winning Olympic swimmers, male and female. Those shoulders will teach Pastor Anderson not to mess with us women/womyn/feminist dudes.

  • Gregory Brown

    When I was 17 I arm wrestled my friend’s sister. She didn’t win, but … neither could I. Damn, she was strong.

    Also too, try giving birth you fucking nub.

My ex-husband couldn’t beat me at tractor pulls, does that mean I should have been the boss of him?

    What?

  • Delu

    Sigh….

    Men are indeed physically stronger than women IN GENERAL.

    But that’s still no excuse for Misogyny. These fucks really need to learn that.

    Or are they really saying that, like the cavemen of old, Physical strength is the overriding factor that determines “superiority”?

    • Muscle strength is only one component of physical heartiness, though. Most women have greater endurance and live longer. And then there’s the fact that most of us bleed regularly for half our lives, plus give birth and make food for babies. I can pretty much guarantee that this walking shart would collapse on the floor and cry if he ever had cramps half as bad as the ones I used to endure.

    • handyhippie65

      might makes right. where’s rhonda rousey when we need her.

  • jmk

    Yo, Pastor… any moderately successful college gymnast – of about half your height – could kick your ass in an arm wrestling contest, and if we expand the muscle groups to be tested, well…I’m a nice middle-aged lady and I bet I could beat you like a rented mule in anything to do with leg strength.

    So fuck off, you wibbet.

  • laineypc

    OK I know it’s before all the muscle changes of puberty, and all but my 9 year old daughter is UNfreakingDEFEATED in arm wrestling among her classmates of all genders in 3rd grade. Which proves absolutely NOTHING about gender-based rules on who makes the rules and decisions.

    Man, there was a time in my misspent youth where I stood a good chance of taking him. I took a year off from college and worked construction at a Youth Conservation Corps camp. And sometimes help the Wildlife Biologists studying the Bighorn Sheep population. That was my bag in them days.

    ETA: I’m a woman, btw :-)

  • Celtic_Gnome

    So, he arm-wrestled his wife and beat her. What happened next? If it’s what I think happened, he probably thinks arm-wrestling is a form of foreplay. (Or the only form of foreplay he’s ever encountered.)

  • Incoming Ham

    Isn’t there a lady MMA fighter out there who could step up, arm wrestle him and pray the shit out of him?

    Does being an ace arm wrestler also make him good at scrubbing floors, doing laundry & dishes, and cooking up some excellent grub, too? He might be tolerable to a busy woman after all.

  • chicken thief

    Jesus Christ, Steve, if you wanna have a big dick contest, then measure dicks and quit fucking around with ‘arm rasslin’ and shit. Then the only decision you have to make is whether you want to put length over girth or vice versa.

  • Bub the Leftwing Zombie
