This is my new least favorite websiteFrom their “About Me” 

"Return Of Kings is a blog for heterosexual, masculine men. It’s meant for a small but vocal collection of men in America today who believe men should be masculine and women should be feminine.

ROK aims to usher the return of the masculine man in a world where masculinity is being increasingly punished and shamed in favor of creating an androgynous and politically-correct society that allows women to assert superiority and control over men. Sadly, yesterday’s masculinity is today’s misogyny. The site intends to be a safe space on the web for those men who don’t agree with the direction that Western culture is headed. Click here to send an email to the team.

Women and homosexuals are prohibited from commenting here. They will be immediately banned.”

they should be fucking shot

people who should be castrated

no.

they should not be shot. nor castrated. think about it.

they should be smothered in fucking love and compassion. possibly the only way they’ll ever snap out of it.

$50 says if you castrate/shoot them they’re bound to just build a nastier website.

don’t perpetuate the cycle. rise.

Thanks Amanda Palmer aren’t u a gr8 persun

Don’t you DARE say these men need “love and compassion”. Our anger is a legitimate reaction to all these sorts of sistematic hate perpetuaded by white cis het men. I REFUSE TO GIVE ANY KINDNESS TO SHITTY PEOPLE LIKE THEM.

We will not perpetuate the cycle. WE’LL SMASH IT.

ok.

watch the world go up in flames as an eye for eye leaves us all in a pile of cosmic hate-filled fire.

manifesto time, i think.

bryonykimmings …where are you?

I think we should be angry. But can you really fight hate with more hate? Doesn’t that just perpetuate the cycle?

yes. we can and should be angry. this website is mad cray.

but saying

"THESE MEN SHOULD DIE SLOW DEATHS/BE CASTRATED/MUTILATED" and those responding "FUCK YEAH"

is stooping right down to level of mindless violence and non-respect that this website is perpetuating. and it’s exactly the response that gives forward-thinking feminists a bad rap in as a bunch of maniacal “man haters”. 

so yes. feel anger. share feelings. respond with truth. but don’t use wrong speech, or get violent. or say anything you wouldn’t say in the actual company of these human beings.

it still amazes me that some women think the correct response to this is “LET’S KILL THESE PEOPLE.”

really, ladies? would you call up the mother of the guy who started this website and say “hello, ms. smith, i think your son should be castrated and die.” ???

no. really. honestly. you wouldn’t. you’d be angry, but human.

so let’s please get our shit together and treat each other - yes, even the people like this - with dignity and respect. 

golden fucking rule, people.

otherwise we all stay in the fucking gutter.

rant over.

Amanda Palmer has been my hero since I was 13, I’ve seen her in concert five times, but I’m an adult now and realizing how fucking problematic some of the shit she says is. Like this.
'Rise above the hate' are you fucking kidding me. I will not 'rise above' anything I will obliterate those tools. 'Don't threaten them you'll just reinforce the man hating feminist stereotype!' Why the hell would I want any man around me that guzzles that kool-aid, or for that matter doesn't think my 'man hating' (aka FEAR) is justified. Not gonna cuddle these assholes into submission, really rather just eject them into the sun.

No Amanda, just no. I am so disappointed.

yes.

and i’ll say it again, and i’ll never stop.

rise above the hate.

it’s actually possible.

and it’s the way out of here.

you want out?

you want websites like this to go away?

you want everybody on the planet to be happy?

including this guy?

i do.

you wanting to “eject these people into the sun” will not help matters. at all. ever.

if you think it’s “not okay” for these men to use cruel, violent speech and awful imagery, surely it’s also “not okay” for anyone - including you - to do the same. 

if you cannot see the connection between your violence and their violence, you aren’t looking hard enough for a real solution to the larger problem.

a problem that i think we can all agree we need to fix pronto.

love,

problematic.
