fragile masculinities and capitalism alike

Shattering fragile masculinity
By what. That's like making a large O with both my hands to show how loose a woman is. They can literally just ignore it.
Shattering capitalism through posting an emoji that to anyone who hasn't read the article wouldn't know what the fuck that meant
Absolutely boomer cancervative tier.
I think the guys at Vice got bullied by falling for the "Gay" hand signal thing in elementary school, you know the one where if you look down when another guy tells you to and stare at their hand then you're gay, and they got laughed at for it, so now they're trying to use the same tactics without realizing no one except children does stuff like that.
hows the moderator cancer coming?
lol let's laugh at men who have small penises!
where's that obnoxious tripcode who always insists that leftist feminism is about true equality and we should support them? She can never give any examples of those feminists so now that we've found some, I want to know what she has to say about them.
feminists in general should be treated like the Japanese treated war criminals
that includes male feminists
Vice is a right-wing libertarian publication pretending to be liberal by covering a lot of edgy shit.
So much small-dick butthurt ITT
I can sort of see where they're coming from, if you already are a bit left-leaning to begin with, you might be more receptive to socialist ideas, thus "ask any questions you like", but maybe I'm giving them too much credit
This is a storm of backward spectacle. Thanks for posting it OP. It's an object lesson in how capitalism can take concepts or language that are meant to change something and turn that into just supporting the status quo.
Caring about emojis at all
In any context where you can use emojis you can just write something. There's also a weird "submit to corporate authority" mentality here because emojis are made and controlled by tech companies. Treating an arbitrary update from some company as a source of meaningful social change is one of the saddest things ever.
body shaming people's genitals
One of the reasons socially inept men send dick pics is because of penis insecurity, and this just feeds into that. Moreover, the principle that we shouldn't body shame people is fine in theory, but it's seemingly only applied to fat people (who could potentially lose weight) rather than, say, people with deformities or scars or amputations or just weird/unattractive bodies in general. Shaming a man for having a small dick is both feeding into stupid gender ideology about what a "real man" is and definitely not "punching up" because the ability to make a man feel inadequate because of his dick is already a power that women have over men, so if anything it's "punching down." A lot of people won't really care about being insulted like this, but for the ones who do it will hurt a lot. Someone who actually gives a fuck about overcoming bullshit gender ideology would not promote it like this.
It's not some minor thing either, because this kind of psychological manipulation can really fuck with people and change how they see themselves. Shaming people like this can give them body dysmorphia that prompts them to get cosmetic surgery; this applies regardless of gender. That also supports the (spectacularly capitalist) cosmetics and cosmetic surgery industries which already are grotesque for preying on and encouraging people's insecurities. The fundamental problem here is the idea that a person's body is not theirs to do with as they choose, but is subject to the approval of others. It's a supreme form of alienation, because it treats the mere existence or presence of your body as a kind of labor you don't own that helps produce other people's emotional states.
men = patriarchy = capitalism
To these people "capitalism" is just another floating signifier they pull out to yell at things they don't like. If someone says capitalism is bad you should feel
free obligated to gatekeep the fuck outta them. Never let someone articulate a position against capitalism without finding out what exactly they mean by that. This kind of thing is a meaningful threat to the left because it obscures the critique of capitalism and action against it. OP's example is obvious bullshit because it's also praising the companies that use emojis, but a lot of times it's less clear whether someone is actually against capitalism or just throwing words around.
Emojis are Fascist
Support Emoticon Communism
butterfly poster is kind of a tard but I think they do genuinely believe what they say
To be fair to LSC, the men's rights movement at present does have a lot of loud right wingers in it, even if it used to be dominated by progressive liberals or actual lefties. There's definitely a recruitment process going on where the far right tries to get its influence in online communities and draw people in. The problem with what that person is saying in your pic is that they attribute the right wing tendencies to the MRM itself rather than people jumping on board to use it for their own purposes.
And the "regularly spurs violence" bit is probably just the usual thinking that MRAs = incels = willful cuckold = PUAs = etc. where they lump together people who look similar to them.
whats the actual difference besides social issues anyways?
they also should take off that Stirner flag and just be a red liberal. or maybe a separate Epicurus flag should be made to specify between altruistic and non-altruistic egoists
aside from a few incel spergouts I've never actually seen these people act violent.
most of the incel shooters were largely libshits anyways.
To be a bit clearer, the handful of violent incels don't indict all incels. That's part of what I meant about lumping all those people together.

Speak for yourself, I'm huge and it works, I don't see the logic of small dicked men sending their genitals to anybody unless they enjoy the humiliation which only means that this will encourage them.
Butterfly is permanently deranged from a heroic several month long tour of duty despooking stormniggers on /b/. Her time on this board is primarily convalescence.
I have no concern for women's opinions. I care about my own self-interest even at the detriment of other people
I don't get it, why would the Bon Apetit fingers offend men?
Get laid nerd, I bet you take dating advice from your mother too.
If somone gets triggered by implications they got a small dick, then they deserve it tbh.
Vaginism is truly radical and revolutionary.
The fundamental problem here is the idea that a person's body is not theirs to do with as they choose, but is subject to the approval of others. It's a supreme form of alienation, because it treats the mere existence or presence of your body as a kind of labor you don't own that helps produce other people's emotional states.
It doesn't treat it as a kind of labour, you treat it as a kind of labour because you have a fantasy of ultimate satisfaction which you believe is denied to you by "labour". It truly is ideology at its purest.
go read some marx
Why are libshits so childish?
you treat it as a kind of labour
But I don't. I'm literally saying it's not that.
because you have a fantasy of ultimate satisfaction which you believe is denied to you by "labour".
Preferring that corporations don't stoke insecurities is a "fantasy of ultimate satisfaction"?
Being a roastie isn’t praxis; it’s just annoying and feminist hysterics.
There's also a weird "submit to corporate authority" mentality here because emojis are made and controlled by tech companies.
Their representation as shitty little emoticons is. The characters themselves are just part of Unicode. But the unicode people are beholden to the institutions with power over what text encodings peoples software will use, ie tech companies, if they want people to keep using their standard and not regress back to the hellscape of numerous incompatible encodings.
(moreover, the shitty yellow svg's are what people care about.)
beholden to companies for emojis
not as much as you seem to think
men = patriarchy = capitalism
But what about the other part? "If you're a socialist who supports gender equality you're not welcome here"
And feminists know that MRAs are not the same as incels/PUAs/willful cuckold etc, the just like to conflate them because they don't have any other way to attack MRAs. And the MRM did start leftwing, they only became more conservative because the rest of the left was overcome with misandry. Any leftists who aren't misandrists should acknowledge that and fight against the misandry on the left rather than blame MRAs for shifting away from the left.
And the MRM did start leftwing, they only became more conservative because the rest of the left was overcome with misandry.
The MRM is still largely left wing, just that the left wingers tend not to say so. It's not so much that MRAs got more conservative as it is that their ranks swelled up with conservatives who thought it was a good way to trigger libs. It's kind of amazing how the radlib "leftists" so consistently push the idea that certain ideas make you persona non grata and turn people off left wing politics for good.
What exactly is this supposed to mean?
What does some piece of shitty webpage-as-software with font drawing have to do with text encoding standards?
