Georgia Girl avoids facing the consequences of her misandry:
"I have in mind a general profile of a typical MRA, but I don't wanna sit here and duck the arrows, so I'll pass."
Too cowardly to back up your claims, eh ?
How typical for the common sexist feminist bigot.
The truth that bigots such as GG and jeana wish weren't true is that MRA's are working for actual Equality. Equality in front of the law, such that the concept of "innocent until proven guilty" applied to BOTH men *and* women.
The article and thread titled "She admits she framed him, but he's still charged" shows clearly that men ARE treated in the law as being LESS than any woman. Thats sexism, and thats WRONG.
Those who defend wrongful sexism, including misandrous sexism, ARE sexist bigots. QED.
This was in reply to these statements:

“and while you're at it, notice the sexes of the various players and their roles”
Ok, so instead of this being about what an awesome job the pilot did and the emergency workers, it is really more “boys are better than girls” because all of the helpers in the article were male.
But while you’re busy noticing the sex of those who helped the passengers, also please note their functions. Divers, police, pilot, and an Emergency Services chief. That is their JOB. They did their JOB. Thank you, dudes, for doing your JOB.
I hope no one is implying that if there were female officers that they’d just let the passengers drown????? Maybe they’d be too busy applying lip gloss.
One non-professional, a male passenger, was also credited for helping women and children. Great for him. Not his job, but he helped out. More people should be like him. The lady with the baby on her shoulder who he helped—should she have helped out the men in business suits?
I, for one, am very glad that Jeff Kolodjay was not an MRA. For if he was, he’d have trampled the women and children on his mad dash to get out of the plane.

Sully is my hero!
It also warmed my heart that more than one of the male survivors put the lives of women and children above his own. That clearly indicates, to me, that the majority of men in our country do not fit the MRA profile.

Wayne, you have described traits that are not exclusive to MRAs, but to mankind.
I have in mind a general profile of a typical MRA, but I don't wanna sit here and duck the arrows, so I'll pass.
Basically this post goes on and on ad infinitum about how wonderful men are, and how women are crybabies and always victims and always in need of rescuing and how these particular men (well at least the vast majority of them anyway) will not help because they are tired of being victims themselves. Thankfully both GG and jeana can hold their own against these MCPs and need no help from me. I however thought that MY readers should get an example of the levels to which these MRAs will stoop when writing about the 'victimization of men.' I am only on post 45 as of this writing and am nearly 100% disgusted with what I have read. Some of the cult followers have 'claimed' that women REFUSE to take jobs as police officers, divers, EMT, fire rescue personnel. One even claimed there were - get this - ZERO female responders at Ground Zero. Men do typically take these types of jobs more often than women. The tides are turning however. Fifty years ago you would never see a female EMT or fire fighter. They are gaining ground today however. And the notion that NO women were on Ground Zero is defeated with this link and this link.
Oh and my favorite (gag) MRA has surfaced again.

Kinda like when the first Space Shuttle blew up. You would have thought that the only person on board was the female teacher.
BC you have about no brains as well. The ONLY reason Christina Mcauliffe was mentioned so often is because she was NOT an astronaut. She WAS a schoolteacher, so therefore she was DIFFERENT. Just because she happened to be a she is of no call. If you recall, there have been two shuttle catastrophes and in the second (all were military/astronauts) two were women. On the first shuttle disaster, there were also two women (one of whom was Mcauliffe). These women were mentioned no more and no less than the other MALE astronauts. To say that society is anti-male because Mcauliffe was mentioned more is simply - words don't describe you BC. You are in a class of your own. One must expect that with your fantasy level, however.
Andre Lieven at it again (shakes head in amazement that he ACTUALLY believes himself)

"Do you want news reports to say, “And a MAN helped out the victims! Can you believe it, a MAN!!”"
Why NOT ? The daily news is FULL of reports that say "A BAD MAN did (X)".
Why can't it, Equally, say that "A GOOD MAN did (Y)" ? Or, "A bunch of Good Men did (Y)" ?
Why do you so OPPOSE Real Equality ?
Ummm Andre - the papers and TV news stations DO run stories about people all over the world every day who do good things. They also inform the public of those who do bad things. And sadly it is men consistently over time who "do bad things" - more so than women. It should also be pointed out that when a woman does the ultimate in horrendous (IE - the taking of the life of a child or the mere allegation of that act - such as Casey Anthony) we are constantly bombarded daily with her actions, words, thoughts. We are BOMBARDED with the thoughts of those close to that case. Where is the followup to Bruce Pardo? What of the followups with the survivors? Why is this not done? Simple....Men are quite often the type of perpetrator who would take the lives of his children, of his wife (ex-wife). Men are more frequently, MORE violent than women. Men cause more damage when they are violent than women do. This has come to be somewhat 'expected' (although it should not be). So we will see one or two articles on the 'bad men', and then they fall by the wayside. Simply put - bad men do not make controversy. 'Bad women' do...
I could continue on and on with this post but I think all of my faithful readers get the picture. Andre Lieven (in post 78 at the Petunia link) also discusses the Titanic survivor/fatality rates, delves into some severe misogyny in and of itself. And one last parting remark regarding the Paul/Linda debate....I would save PAUL simply because he has given much more to society. He is one of the Beatles for gosh sakes :-) Seriously though, I would give my life if it meant saving both of them. I would hope I would never be in the position to choose between saving one person or another. Given a choice the only time an easy choice would be made would be a child versus an adult. That would be a no-brainer. The child would ALWAYS come first.

.....-Whats the difference between NOW and the KKK?
The KKK has a dress code.-
Can we get any more disgusting than this?!?!?!?!?!?!
And it seems Andre Lieven is hung up on the KKK and NOW? What is his hangup? MEN have traditionally had it easier than women. White men have it easier than anyone else. This is a fact of life - no matter how you spin it Andre. Get over yourself and your poor misguided feelings of oh woe is me.......
