Your emotional state is suffering quantum fluctuations, so it's actually both. Just ask Schrodinger's cat.

I have to find one of those to frame for my wall.

That makes me an asshole.

Point one, that's my schtick, Junior. There's only room for one all-hating bastard on this forum.

Point two, that makes me a misanthrope. The fact that I am also an asshole is entirely unrelated.

To be fair, earmuffs assumed that mantle while your were on sabbatical. Cunt.

Now to be fair, feminism at that time achieved the equal pay act 4 years before it.

To be still more fair, the SCUM Manifesto was written by a paranoid schizophrenic with demonstrated homicidal tendencies.

I'm all for not taking it seriously, but saying "oh feminists were going through a hard time so it's okay that they published something that advocated murdering all men" is wrong on just about every level. The feminist movement did not create the SCUM Manifesto. Mental illness did.

Now, the fact that some feminists, even today, take the thing seriously is another issue entirely, but it's late and I don't particularly care to get into the details of it. It basically just comes down to "parts of the Tumblr slacktivist are fucking stupid and think that being as edgy as possible makes them look impressive, and a few others are even dumb enough to actually want all men dead but too ineffectual and cowardly to ever do anything about it so it's moot anyway".

Details are a bit scant regarding that diagnosis. In addition it was 1968 and psychiatry, as well as various psychological concepts were still not very well developed, as far as I know.

It's much more serious than that. These women are far spread. They are on schools boards in universities, they are being appointed positions on boards in large companies, they are speaking to the UN, they have gotten Nobel Prize Winners, and Nasa engineers fired or dismissed. Their realm of influence is huge. You underestimate the effectiveness of their bullying greatly.

Anita also mentioned saying you are a liar is harassment. I guess I have been harassing people for years then.

Well, I would say the majority of their act was unrelated to feminism (though there were elements), and was more to do with whitewashing history, something that is a really problem. I would say feminism is more acuratley represented below:

Good God! How shall we ever bring them to justice? Facepalm I mean jeez. You could bring a court case but the judge might secretly be a feminist.
