I don't think you get what 'misogynist' actually means. Criticizing specific women for their stupid statements is not misogyny. If they were all replaced by men making the same stupid comments, I'd make the same criticisms. What I don't get is why there are so many men like you who will white knight for them no matter what, often without even having complete understanding of the situation.

Except that it's come to mean "If you don't agree with my self-established victimhood you're a hater." You're welcome to change out 'hater' for the equivalent ad hominem for the attribute of the group or individual under 'attack.'

Regardless of which group they are claiming victimhood for, SJWs largely operate with the same strategy: drum up some controversy with fallacious appeals to gain notoriety and then label any criticism they get as bigotry (you just hate women/gays/whatever). I'm pointing out the hypocrisy that results from this behavior. All you're doing is calling me names because you don't have an argument. Equating rosa parks, who was resisting bonafide caste restrictions, with the bs of sarkeesian/wu/zoe quinn and friends about video games is crazy.

So what if the FBI is investigating. Why do you expect your assumptions to coincide with their conclusions? Any large following will have a few crackpots making threats. Feminists do it too (the scum manifesto comes to mind, all the way to the amanda marcott types). I suppose you are just as eager for their crackpots to go to jail right? Somehow, I doubt it.

The last thing we should be doing is folding to these professional victims. Colbert (or his boss) was a coward. Out of all the flack comedy central gets for shows like southpark, it's anita sarkeesian's pity party that makes them fold? Something doesn't add up.

The only problem with being a man of leisure is that you can never stop and take a rest.
