    Can't compete? Eliminate the competition!

    http://www.theguardian.com/books/201...omen-challenge

    Just gonna leave this here.

    “At this point, I’m going to assume that the only people who really doubt that there is a gender bias going on are those who stick with the idea that men are better writers and better critics,” wrote Shamsie. “Enough. Across the board, enough ... I would argue that is time for everyone, male and female, to sign up to a concerted campaign to redress the inequality ... Why not have a year of publishing women: 2018, the centenary of women over the age of 30 getting the vote in the UK, seems appropriate.”

    Good highlighting of the key point of the article. Hope we see more of this as it makes it more accessible.

    As for her comments, could the centenary not afford the right opportunity to reconsider whether providing women the right to vote is working out as intended? I think it is a general feeling that uninformed voters should not vote.

    Some of you may be wondering -- who is this Jagrmeister guy? Have a look at some of my posts from MGTOW Forums--> Jagr Archive (collection of my articles)

    Perhaps a good way to frame it is to use the recently linked to data on which gender pays far less attention to foreign affairs, economics, etc.; and pose the question that "it's been a hundred years. When, if ever, are women going to take their responsibilities as voters seriously? "

    Of course we know the answer is never, but questions provoke thought in ways that statements don't.

    Wow, a full year of feminist books, maybe a new scum manifesto and of course more 50 shades of grey "novels" and other crappy romance novels, sound awful but, who cares? I only read classics, fantasy novels or science material.

    Men will still be writing and publishing during that little year even if we have to do it ourselves out of our own pockets. Why? Because men don't need feminist cheering circles and worldwide browbeating to accomplish anything.
    Isaiah 4:1 (KJV)
    And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.

    But I don't want to go a year without reading.

    Feminist yet again show that they are a hate group. What if they said, "No Jews allowed."

    That's unlikely given how many of the founders and strident exponents of feminism are Jewish...!

    To be fair though, that might just be because Jews are founders of a lot of things.

    Scots are the same!

    The worst feminist in Germany (Alice Schwarzer) is a christian,
    thus a member of one of the most patriarchal religions ever.

    And surprise, surprise she is a butt ugly lesbian as well.

    A lesbian christian feminist! Go figure lol, for women it is never about consistency and logic,
    what makes them feel good is right! That is why
    Women are all hypocrites.
