“We are NOT protesting that the sign is capable of existing, or the people who put it up, or the ad agency, or the right to put it up. We are protesting patriarchy and sexism, and that this antiquated way of thinking about women exists at all,” the group’s Facebook page said.

that this antiquated way of thinking about women exists at all

You hear that men? You are still expected to provide, but without being appreciated for it.

Really though, this goes back to what Rollo says, women lack the fundamental capacity to understand the sacrifices men make, and therefore cannot appreciate what men do.

Man > woman > child

Man > woman = child

man > your child > woman = someone else's child

Flip the script. Don't provide, but demand appreciation.

I don't understand the issue here this sign is offensive to women in what way ? The idea that men are typically providers and that they should appreciate them for it ? It doesn't say women can't provide , It doesn't say be a princess in a castle until a man rescues you , it says men should ( AND OFTEN DO ) provide and women should be thankful for the men who provide for them .

It's getting to the point where just the phrase " Real Women " is going to trigger all of the SJW's and yet " Real Men love curves" , " Real Men respect women unlike fuckboys" ,and " Real Men don't have to prove their masculinity" are casual barbs women fire off without even thinking .

Women naturally protest any form of public expression of expectations about them. And arent personally concerned with expectations about men so naturally don't protest them.

Also, why did the sign assume my gender? I identify as queer attack helicopter. Don't oppress me with gender binary systems

Let's not turn this forum into the 'circle jerk about public outrage' forum please. I'm sure there's plenty of discussion over in places like /r/mensrights and whatnot.

Absolutely this.

Honestly, that sign is clearly sexist, but the stupid thing is that they are only complaining about what it says about women. It's sexist to both genders.

Fuck you, sign, I ain't providin' shit to no bitch.

I ain't providin' shit to no bitch.

Not even a good dicking?

[–]tallwheel 3 points4 points  (2 children)

In that case, though, the good dicking is in exchange for a good pussying.

So what's the question? I don't want to be "That guy" but the reason I stay in this sub and not the main TRP is because I think we can all learn from each other answering questions.

Articles like this that frequent the main sub are the dead horse we've beat to a bloody pulp.

[–]TRP_MushaShugyo[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

TRP didn't let me post to the main sub because my account was so new. So I posted here because I thought it would be a great discussion. Then my original post suddenly showed on the main sub after all. Shrug.

I'm so sick of this bullshit. I'm trying to game feminists just because I look at it as performance art where I'm satirizing our bullshit society. I know all the buzzwords and will just be a fake beta until the bedroom - BOOM.

[–]WhorehouseVet 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Pump and dump feminists, that's the ultimate fuck you.
