Howdy Neighbor!

I don't know why it surprises me, but somehow it does: Seattle has its own burgeoning Men's Rights Movement chapter! Apparently this blogger has taken a leaf from the activism book of A Voice For Men by plastering Capitol Hill (a hip downtown area favored by the young and gender variant) with crappy photocopied posters. Several posters were promptly torn down by a lurking feminist, prompting our hero to solicit suggestions for better glue. All in all, it was a glorious and well-documented adventure as the intrepid lads braved the "lion's den" of tattoo/piercing studios, sex toy boutiques, gay bars and music clubs.

I can't help but suspect this MRA must feel as lonesome and alienated from his surroundings as Matt Forney did when he spent a couple of months in Portland last year.  

I don't know why it surprises me, really.  After all, I only live a few miles from Bill Price of The Spearhead.

  1. That Bill Price is one angry mutherfucker. Seriously try conversing with him online. Holy fuck

    Maybe he glued those posters? Lol

  2. They haven't posted anything since April 2013. I'd guess they're defunct.

  3. I do believe you also share a city with Pastor Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church. Not an MRA AFAIK but someone whose retrograde views on feminism and gender roles would probably be similar to those of many in the MRM.

    Not sure if there're any MRAs in my neck of the woods, though I did see a letter in the local rag one day whose author was complaining about "misandry". Is that word ever used by anyone who's not an MRA?

    1. "Misandry" is a dead giveaway, no doubt about it.

  4. Posters torn down? Posters painted pink? Oh, the humanity....
