Toxic Anti-Male Bigotry at Simon Fraser University
It seems that Simon Fraser University in BC, Canada, will be establishing a "men's centre" on campus. Well, the local feminists have gone ballistic about this. But so far, our side appears to be winning. Just today (or maybe it was yesterday) a highly sympathetic article appeared in the Canadian "National Post" online publication. Snippet follows:
"Men, too, join in the criticism of the proposed Centre, one curiously warning that it may “become a highly masculinized space.” Another cautions that the project risks creating a “heteronormative space,” while yet another critical male dismisses the Men’s Centre as simply, “a room with a PS3 and a bunch of douchebags playing games.”
"Bravo, students. . . . . you have effectively demonstrated why such a space is so very necessary. At present, there is only one other Canadian campus with an official support centre for men — the Men’s Resource Centre at the University of Manitoba. Judging by the crass sociology catch phrases in the aforementioned video, the consensus is that young men don’t need community resources or support."You know, the douchebag who made the "douchebags" remark quoted above, ought to volunteer for some Maoist self-criticism sessions, don't you think so? (Seriously, that shit sounds like David Futrelle in the early days of his blog, before he wised up and learned to mask his attitude more effectively.)

Note the stunning deluge of down votes and down-comments on that video, and add your own if you feel so inclined. I'll betcha the little twits who posted the video never even knew what hit 'em!
