Matt’s post on the wacky world of anti-feminist blogging is good. Not surprisingly, the comments section basically turns into an illustration of the post’s title. Didja know that feminists are all ugly bitter bitches? Enlightening stuff! But I think my favorite comment has to be this:
The reason that I think Amanda Marcotte is unattractive probably has less to do with any objective feature of her looks and more to do with her as yet unrepentant blasphemies towards the Blessed Mother of God. I’m sorry, but I don’t find blasphemy at all attractive.
Blaspheming the Blessed Mother of God always kills my boner, too. (No wonder I’m still single!)
Female persons have noticed that men greet each other by shaking hands, so now all female persons want to shake hands, too. Equality at last! I’ve got some bad news for them: men don’t shake the hands of female persons the way they shake each other’s hands. Men use a very strong grip; it’s a way of communicating health, strength, vitality and to some extent virility. A man with a very weak grip is suspect. In the old days, a weak grip implied that he was gay. Now it just means he’s a wimp. Regardless, a man with a weak grip will not get the respect he’d get if his grip was strong. Thus has it always been, though it’s not often talked about.
If I used that same grip on a woman’s hand that I use on a man, she’d probably scream from the pain, for I am quite capable of crushing her hand, and that’s the degree of strength I routinely use when I shake the hand of another man.
