Meet Dave Hon, the guy behind this entire Shitstorm:
Arguably, Dave isn’t the best looking guy out there, but his arguments are still sound and valid nonetheless. Just a few hours ago, Dave wrote an article for NewsPressNow titled “Why I’ll never date a Feminist“.
In the article, Dave talks about some of the reasons he’d never date a Feminist:
“If you look for a reason to hate men, chances are you’re going to find it.
The truth is, I don’t blame women, (especially in my generation) for hating men. They’ve been told there’s a wage gap (I disagree). That there’s a culture of rape on college campuses (I also disagree). And the patriarchy is keeping them oppressed in almost every facet of their lives (I really, really disagree.)” wrote Dave.
He talks about some disadvantages that men have compared to women:
“No doubt, there are men who should be buried underneath the prison. There’s plenty of examples of how the justice system has failed victims. But, it also fails men. The Father’s Rights Movement reports that only 14 percent of custodial parents are fathers. Mothers are more likely to be awarded child support. Women are more likely to graduate college, they live longer, are less likely to die in the workplace, less likely to go to prison and extremely less likely to die in war-time combat.
When it comes to dating, I don’t care about any of that. Unless you do.”
And then he goes for the kill:
“People who are more loyal to their gender and not their significant other don’t make good partners. They will always look at you as inherently more fortunate than them. They’ve bought into the “battle of the sexes” mentality and it often pervades their perceptions of romance. Romance turns into a power struggle rather than a partnership.
There are complex advantages and disadvantages to being a man or a woman in America. No doubt, men enjoy privileges that women don’t but that boat goes both ways.
The truth is, these aren’t political issues, but deeply personal ones. Often times, anti-male or anti-female rhetoric is rooted in a previous bad experience. They’re cultural opinions that reflect our world views, and thusly, affect how we want to raise our families. Now that America is more politically divided than ever, it’s impossible to date someone with staunchly different ideals than you.
It’s a shame, really, that this divide is widening between the sexes. It’s evident that gender politics is hurting our culture. More marriages are failing and women are reporting that they’re unhappier now than ever.
Perhaps in several decades this won’t be the case. Maybe one day, men and women will stop trying to eliminate the lines between us and realize it’s the differences between the sexes that make romance, family and love an enjoyable experience.”
After the article was published, it sort of went viral and was trending on Twitter for several hours(Its still trending at the writing of this article). As can be expected, the Internet’s Feminists didn’t take this very well. There are two sides to this shitstorm, Butt-hurt Feminists and Shitlords who were just enjoying the butthurt and pointing out the hypocrisy.
Part 1: The Butthurt: Note that they are all attacking the guy’s appearance instead of tackling his arguments.
Part 2: The Shitlords Make an appearance:
