To commenters: How not to be taken seriously

I welcome honest, robust discourse and debate. I welcome your most vociferous arguments, your heated passion and your sincerely held beliefs. Of course, a good conversation is most appreciated when we can be civil. But this kind of response will not cause me to take you, or your issues seriously:

YOUR’E INFALLIBLE DUDE. I’M FLAWED!! ISN’T THAT GREAT ?

GO BE HAPPY FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE NOW. U JUST WON THE WAR OF SEXES STARTED BY YOU.SO YIPEEEEEEEEEE!!!

If you believe in your cause, and understand that your words and actions have real-world consequences, take what you say and do seriously. I’m not here to argue with feminists for the sake of fun. I’m here to sway the open minded into doing two things:

1. Abandoning the political ideology of feminism
2. Performing actions in the real world that encompasses both men and women’s rights simultaneously so as to create a better world.

    You seem to be too keen in bashing everybody here. Guess that is why most men aren’t fans of Men’s rights movement. Its actually a mockery of our rights. Was a waste visiting your blog. Makes no sense now,

    • Francis Roy says:

      Please tell me what you mean by “bashing”. I am asking for people to provide cogent replies that address the issues. You are the second person to use that term in a few days. Maybe I’m missing something. What do you think I’m missing?

        Justness.

        Francis…you bash people now?
        Where, pray tell? Yours is one of the MRAs/MGTOWs sites that I actually point newbies to, simply because it *is* so open and welcoming to real conversation. Your blog here is rarely, if ever, full of the anger and vitriol that is a constant in so many other men’s rights blogs (not that the anger isn’t justified in most cases, but it can be contagious and/or off-putting to those who are attempting to learn more about how men are disenfranchised). If you are going to be accused of bashing commenters, I’d like to see a link to where you’ve supposedly done so…

      Agreed. Mens rights movement is a sham. It would be good if it concentrated on our rights rather than taking away women’s rights.

  2. Anthony Carillo says:

    Is there any discussion of “Men’s Rights” that isn’t totally ridiculous? It’s like a “fight for the endangered rights of the 1%” movement

      It’s those hard bricks of logic…

      I will be honest, that if I had the time and energy, I could go far out of my way to be hyper-delicate. Diplomacy does have it’s value. At the same time, if I fail to call someone a bigot or a hypocrite–when it is demonstrably so, then it’s akin to giving someone a free pass to continue to act as such. Do I strike the perfect balance? Probably not. Doesn’t mean that I’m not willing to continue to practice and become a better communicator.

      None are more aware of my own failings than myself. And I do admit that I have enjoyed the generosity of others in the past. I’ll see if there’s a way that I can be more diplomatic without becoming a wet Kleenex. As I’ve said more often than once, I do invite feedback. Every weakness that someone can point out helps me eliminate it and I become better and stronger at the task. Doesn’t mean that I won’t need to be told more than once or that I’ll always succeed overnight, or even that I’ll see the value of making said change, but I will listen.

    I see, and in what way have I been unjust? Please point me to a specific example, and show me what you think a just response would have been.

      Would you be so kind as to email me the link to where you have found the article? Please use the contact form, I’m tired of your polluting the site. This is one article that I am interested in reading in full. Thanks.
