I’ve recently given up entirely on The Non-Prophets Podcast, which may seem a little strange considering they just came back from a very long hiatus, but I hate to say it but I’ve lost any and all respect for the people involved and if I can’t respect the hosts or their views or opinions, why should I pay attention to their podcast? At issue here was a long and absurd rant on MRAs and feminism and how one is valid and the other is not. Primarily at issue here is Jeff Dee, although everyone else chimed in and sorry, after this load of nonsense, I’m through.
Now as everyone knows, I’m not a feminist by any stretch of the imagination, nor do I belong to the MRA side. I am in favor of equality across the board on both sides. I actually consider a lot of people who wear either label to be fundamentally sexist, I see no point in calling oneself pro-female or pro-male when I’m pro-everyone. I’d also not call myself pro-black or pro-white when race is irrelevant to me and everyone ought to have equal rights in everything.
But that’s not what happened, in fact, they went off railing against an e-mail, suggesting that just because women are behind on equality around the world (this is really not the case in most first-world nations, it’s primarily in the third world where these first-world-feminists have no say whatsoever), that men ought not seek to correct inequalities where they’re actually behind, because overall, they’re still ahead. So… you shouldn’t worry about specific inequalities because there’s some imaginary scorecard where you have extra points?
Bullshit. Now as I said, I’m not MRA, but the people that I know that are, they are specifically in response to the feminists. They are protesting against shortcomings in men’s rights because feminists seem to only care about the rights of women. The majority of people I know of who are MRAs are not only for men’s rights, they want equality for all, they just don’t want one side being left behind because all the attention is being paid to the other. I don’t necessarily agree with how they do it, but the goals seem admirable, a lot more admirable than the third-wave feminist fucks that we see on the Atheism+ side. They don’t care if men live or die. In fact, some of them actively want to stab men in the back. That is not the way a logical, rational person ought to deal with the world.
I don’t play this game with a score card. I don’t tick off when one side is ahead of the other. So far as I’m concerned, if either side is ever behind, we’re losing. That goes for gender, that goes for race, that goes for sexual orientation, etc. This is not a dick-waving contest, the only goal here that makes any difference is equality for all and when we find a place where inequality reigns, we need to stomp it, no matter who is “ahead” at the moment. If you don’t, then you’re sexist. I don’t want anything to do with sexists.
Therefore, I’m just opting out of the Non-Prophets podcast entirely. I have no interest in wasting my time listening to people that I fundamentally disagree with. I know they don’t care and frankly, I don’t care that they don’t. They’ve proven they’re part of the problem and unfortunately, I don’t think they even realize it or care. However, I do and it matters to me so I take action.
Toodle-loo, go with God and don’t take any wooden nickels.
