"Misogyny" Du Jour

This is for all of you cocky "MRA dudes" with "attitude". You guys think you are pushing envelopes and being "edgy" and all o' that, but you aren't. You're just being crude and gross. Fact is, if you wish to play chicken with the boundaries of propriety in order to make a political point, there is both a right way and a wrong way to go about it. What you need is wit, grace, aplomb, and a deft touch. So take a lesson from the master, namely, ME:

>In a compassionate feminist world, no sparrow would fall, and goody gumdrops would grow on trees. And every time a baby bird took a tumble from the nest, Mama Kitty would pick it up gently and nurse it alongside of her kittens.  But most of all, every time a woman got drunk and some dude got too frisky, handsome men on white horses would ride to her rescue. In fact, whenever a woman was unhappy about the slightest thing, the earth would freeze in its orbit until the problem got fixed.  That is how life would be in a compassionate feminist world.<

Refer to points 1 and 2 of Rhetorical Discipline.

It is debatable whether this violates point number one, but as you can see, I have not hesitated.
