David Futrelle Doesn't Really Care about "Misogyny"
Well just now I was chatting with a Canadian colleague, and he offered up a verrry interesting insight. My colleague informs me that Futrelle wishes to mock misogyny ONLY as a way of attacking people who attack feminism. That is, Davey could frankly care less about some posse of politically naive yokels who merely talk shit about women. Only when the talk touches on feminism in some way, or even occurs in proximity to a conversation about feminism -- as might happen on a forum thread -- does Manboobz feel motivated to swoop in for the attack.
Also, if you attack feminism in a careful, precise, antiseptic way (as I myself tend to do), and never mingle this with anything harsh about women, then Davey can't do anything with it.
So again, David Futrelle is not truly interested in mocking misogyny for its own sake, but only in defusing a perceived political threat to the feminist worldview, by imputing misogyny to a person (or a group) who is talking harshly about feminism.
Thus, in order to be "out of range", you must either talk about women with no harsh allusion to feminism, or talk about feminism with no harsh allusion to women.
In the end, Futrelle doesn't give a snap about defending women, but rather attacking men of a certain type whom he perceives as "the enemy". Defending women is simply a cover story.
That, with elaborations of my own addition, is what my Canadian colleague believes about David Futrelle of the Manboobz blog. And I am inclined to think that he is onto something here.
