nice deflection.



How is this a deflection? You posted a screen shot, totally out of context, of something hateful that somebody who identifies as a feminist apparently said somewhere on the Internet.

If you want us to believe this screen shot is proof of some pervasive trend in feminism, at least tell us where you found it and provide some evidence for why we should think that person speaks for more people than just herself.


Personally, I don't give a shit if a few nutters here and there long for the abolition of men. Maybe she's a survivor of sexual abuse? Maybe you'd feel the same way if you had lived her life?

Oh, for fuck's sake. It's interesting to see how these bloggers are just recycling each other's material.

From this latest blog:

In this iteration of the story, not only do the brides not save themselves—Furiosa saves them instead—but it undermines the friendship between the women that actually was central to their characters:




If I want to see celebrations of friendship, I will watch My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.


These fucking idiots should seriously review MM2 and MM3 and really think long and hard about how alliances (not friendships) are formed in the MM universe.

So it turns out the Shakesville site linked to in the OP is understood by many in the feminist community to be totally ridiculous.

Here's a blog dedicated to cataloging Shakesville's many wrongs:

Shakesville Kool Aid


Another one:


Shakes Fail (It's not you; it's Shakesville)


Moar:


STFU Shakesville



Read some of the posts on those blogs, look at the quotes and screen shots from Shakesville, and you'll soon realize Shakesville is run by somebody with an enormous sense of entitlement and probably some personality disorders.

The author of a snarky feminist deconstruction of the Twilight series turns her attention to a comic book based on a spinoff character of the Mad Max movie franchise... what a puny plan. :lol:

Yeah, the io9 review covered the valid points, in a better written and shorter format - unfortunately I didn't see that before the Shakesville review, otherwise I would have just linked that instead.

And the next, probably not the last :)

I only skimmed this one, but some of the same points pop up.

It's just going to go on and on.
