So, yes, apparently The Youths are “surfing” to this site called Cracked. Actually, since I’m learning about it now, it’s probably been popular for at least a decade. ANYHOO, I decided to peek in on it and see what the fuss was about.
That the site seems aimed almost exclusively at teenage boys didn’t surprise. Hell, I go to any site expecting that. ‘Cuz, you know, young white guys are the default people and anyone else is some weird other. But that it was so glaringly unfunny was kind of a shock.
I made the grave, grave mistake of reading this, and it’s gotten an already crap morning off to a hideous beginning.
This may be the most spectacularly stupid start to a justification for misogyny I’ve ever seen in my life. AND I READ MRA AND WINGNUT BLATHERINGS ON A REGULAR BASIS.
To the women who “can’t understand what the big deal is” and think “guys are such perverts” are audibly sighing right now, please save your comments until women stop obsessing about diamonds. Thank you.
OMF diamond-encrusted God. And, also, is Cracked not only written for 14 year old boys but staffed by them as well?, because holy shit. If you learned everything you know about women from a 15 second Zales commercial, you probably shouldn’t be editorializing about the fairer sex.
The hair-twirling commenters saying some variation of “I’m a girl and I love boobs, too!” make me want to cry.
Anyway, long story short, don’t read Cracked. It’s pretty awful and apparently some guy wrote a thing awhile back telling us ladies that misogyny wasn’t so bad because skyscrapers. No, really.
Go look outside. See those cars driving by? Every car being driven by a man was designed and built and bought and sold with you in mind. The only reason why small, fuel-efficient or electric cars don’t dominate the roads is because we want to look cool in our cars, to impress you. Go look at a city skyline. All those skyscrapers? We built those to impress you, too.
Well, thanks, guys! But slightly less thanks for forgetting that women have had a hand in designing cars and skyscrapers, too.
I’m gonna go vomit up my breffus now.
