I’ve seen a few things at various MRA and MGTOW sites. Men usually social conservatives getting all pissed about the fact that gay people can now marry. I haven’t seen this many men jump ship from the greater men’s movement at any point that I’ve been involved.
Got some news for folks like you I’m not and never have been a conservative, I’ve especially never been a social conservative. In fact it was, the actions of Atheism+ that got me involved with the men’s rights movement in the first place. I had my run in with Bernard Chapin, I had more than a few conservatives block, or start screaming at me for having the audacity to admitting to being a ‘gasp’ LIBERAL!!!
OK granted I’m more of a center/left guy with a Libertarian streak running in me. But try explaining that, so some of the people that I’ve come across and you’d have thought I was responsible for every single thing wrong in western society. This brings me to what happened with this whole gay marriage issue.
I’m not gay, never have been and where I grew up I had to learn to adjust emotionally before I became comfortable with homosexuals. The person who helped me work this out said just one line that changed my whole view on this issue. And trust me he wasn’t polite about it either this guy said.
“You know you’re not gay, you’re not going to sleep with them so what does it matter to you what they do?”
So seriously are you going to lose any sleep because gays are going to be able to get married now? Are there going to be people randomly morphing into homosexuals on the street from now on?
On a scale of yes or no do gays getting married have any real impact on your day to day life?
Go ahead feel free to answer any of those questions for me. For the religious and social conservatives out there that have been screaming at the MRM and MGTOW because for some odd reason we’re not getting worked up about this. I have some news for you the Men’s Rights Movement isn’t and never has been a branch of your world. Yes, Radical Feminists, Social Justice Warriors, and White Knights are far left fundies as dangerous and dogmatic as even the most ardent Fundamentalist Christians. And, as a result, the Greater Men’s Movement has a conservative base, especially at the beginning. But it was never your baby I nor any other MRA out there has an obligation to support you in your ahem ‘jihad’ against homosexuals at the moment.
In fact, for the love of god, deal with it already! And this by the is coming from an Atheist!
Now for the MGTOW out there jumping ship over this, I got a question for you?
Why the FUCK should a movement whose central tenet is boycotting marriage even care about a marriage issue in the first place?
Seriously homosexuals can get married, and that’s my problem as a MGTOW because? Because it goes against Gods law? You remember seeing that part about me being an atheist earlier right? Because it isn’t natural? It’s naturally none of my business is what it is. And quite frankly the MGTOW I’ve have been jumping ship and insulting the other MGTOW over this issue. I happen to think you’re some of the most stupid idiots I’ve encountered. Seriously you remember that part about boycotting marriage right?
Say what you want to about gay men, yeah maybe there are gay men in the movement trolling. That’s not my problem it’s yours.
Have you ever stopped to consider that there might be gay dads out there that are getting shafted over by their ex? I’d lay good money that they’re out there. How about men that are not white? It’s happening to them as well. And I’ve seen more than my fair share of racism and anti-Semitism on MRA and MGTOW sites. Yeah, these men are getting hit hard too it’s not just the WASPS.
I’m going to get some angry blowback over this, and you know what I don’t care. I frequently go after feminists for not holding Misandrists and Feminazis feet to the fire. So for me to let something like this slide and not saying anything would make me a hypocrite.
Gays can get married now deal with it, and I’m not a tool for your personal agenda from the right or the left. And if that makes you mad and causes you to leave?
Don’t let the door hit your rear on the way out.
And one last thing here as I write this down there’s a Rainbow at the top of the page.
