The post-fact world suits feminism just fine

We now know that the video of a cyclist confronting a catcalling driver, which spent much of yesterday being circulated on social media and covered in the national press, was staged. Barely had viewers finished cheering on the woman as she tore the wing mirror off the side of her harasser’s van than the truth emerged.

    I’m happy that the concept of “fake-news” has proliferated,especially to the low-information-voters (LIV). My electoral dream is that LIVs become confused instead of mislead.

    Feminazis no longer have a “cause” other than outright hatred of manly, alpha men. They enjoy rights and freedoms in the western hemisphere never before seen in the history of this little blue planet and when I suggest they should put on their hand-knitted “p*ssy-hats” and take their dog-and-pony show to fight for the enslaved women in Saudia Arabia or Iran, I’m met with curled-lip snarls and called names I can’t type here, they’re so vile.

    So you’ve done it to yourselves, cupcakes. I hope you remember your phony rage and slogans when you approach your later years on the planet, alone, no children or soulmate to cuddle, surrounded by your cats and sadly realizing “I have accomplished nothing!”, as you roll over in the dark for another pitiful, lonely night.

    It’s not a complete loss, though. At least you learned to knit.

      “At least you learned to knit.”
      Might become a useful skill into their twilight years, surrounded by cats, still angry that they never found an rich Alpha male that treated them the way the wimpy Beta males tried to.

    There are so few actual incidents like this one apparently, that wimminz with an agenda have to stage them.

    Bike riders on busy streets deserve every tire that rolls over them.

      When I worked in Vancouver cyclists were anything but normal. How many times did I almost get hit walking on the sidewalk due to cyclists riding there even though it is illegal. I also noted how they did not obey traffic laws when actually riding in the streets. Red light, forget it, and cutting off vehicles with complete arrogance. They seem to think they are holier than everyone else. Even now in my rural area I have encountered more than once two or more cyclists riding abreast and trying to hog the road. When I honk for them to get over in single file, I get the finger. Owning and riding a bicycle, I am not anti-cyclist, but they need to learn that riding a bike does not make them above the law. Personally I think all cyclists should have to have a license plate and have insurance coverage, which is the case in some countries.

        Its the vegan mentality; one part holier than thou and one part passive aggression

        Definitely a holier than thou attitude. They’re not polluting mama gaia so their shit don’t stink. I even saw a spokesman for some biking lobby group on TV explaining they should not have to pay for license plates because their hobby makes them less costly to the health system. No official stats offered though. Another one of those anecdotal fee-fee calls, I guess.

        I love to come upon a gaggle of bicycle riding assholes spread out in my lane when I’m out riding my motorcycle (a 96 cubic inch Harley with straight pipes) I throttle up and go by them, as fast and as close as possible.

    Clearly it doesn’t matter if it is real or not.

    What matters in today’s world is that it displays the rampant Rape Culture of Eurocentric cisgendered paternalistic capitalistic western hegemony that must be broken down to end misogyny, racism and Islamophobia with new laws to ban such hate!

      And air conditioning. Don’t forget air conditioning.

        and I don’t ROFLMAO very often.

    But there is one country where women are strong and capable …
    … yet think manly men are kinda neat.
    Yep, you guessed it.

    I just laugh at people who seemingly take enormous chunks of valuable day to scold people. In most of world the guy in the car would get out of the car and beat the fuck out of her.
