The Patriarchy Wishes Death on AROOO
I find it hilarious how Margie and I are compared to religious fundamentalists for refusing to metaphorically suck males’ dicks on the internet. Because we will not allow men and/or their female sycophants to blather and lecture on our blog about how we should sympathize with men in the name of equality (when in fact there is no equality in our male dominated society and making way for the many who already put males first will only contribute to our inequality), it is wished on us that we die in a fire.
Yes, isn’t it just so symbolically ironic and spine tingling hilarious. I would suspect anyone living in this western world who has venture out from under his or her rock in the last 2000 years would immediately associate fire and a wish for someone to die in that fire as being quite similar to evangelists wishing eternal damnation on heretics, lesbians, gays, single mothers, whores, divorcees, etc. You know the wish, the whole go to hell, burn in hell, and any other derivative of “horrifyin’ torment, with yer poor sinful bodies stretched out on hot gridirons in the nethermost fiery pit of hell.” To wish someone to die in a fire must be quite popular, or at least popular enough that a ready made image of said desire is available on Google images (see above image).
Moreover, the people who wish that we die in a fire because we don’t want men in our conversations nor do we want to consider how men are affected by atrocities inflicted traditionally and predominately on females are supposedly the tolerant liberal ones, –when in actuality they are nothing but more of the same stale defenders and promoters of patriarchy. They are the same old people who want men to be front and center. Talk about being a fundamentalist, it does not get more fundamental than that.
