Anti-feminist mailbag (Now I need a shower edition)

This one is the best. Perhaps my favorite hate mail ever, in fact–just because it’s so telling.

Dear Jessica,
There is absolutely no reason for you to have an opinion or talk, because all women are insignificant pieces of meat. The only thing you femme cunts are good for is cooking dinner and remaining quiet while getting fucked in your tight asses.
If you were my wife, I wouldn’t let you out of your cage to do anything other than cooking, cleaning, and blowing me while I watch porn. Really disgusting porn to – the kind that degrades and objectifies women, because women are only put on this earth to clean and get fucked.
To recap: Women are not as smart as men, are not capable of using logic, and therefore must be treated like dirty little whores. Go back to fucking your smelly vagina with plastic dicks, because you can’t get a guy to fuck your femme cunt ass. You and all your girl power sisters can gargle my balls.

Quite the romantic, yes? To recap: Someone is very, very afraid of women. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go gargle. Have a great, anti-feminist free weekend everyone!

    Ha! Of course, by posting these, my guess is it will lead to even more extreme emails. A runaway selection process where these guys try and outdo each other to see who can write the most offensively hilarious post and get it on the website.
    Of course, that might not be a bad thing. The more hate mail filled with horrible beliefs, the more evidence of just why feministing.com is so important.

    Is use of the word ‘femme’ code for something? It seems so oddly specific and yet two separate pieces of hate-mail used it today. It’s funny.

    “Really disgusting porn to”
    Haha, dumbass used the wrong “too.”

    Please tell me that this sweet-talker is still on the market! I have been looking for a guy with tiny balls to keep me in a cage with cooking and cleaning breaks!
    By the way, what would possibly be the point of writing an email to an “insignificant piece of meat”??

    sgzax, I’ve usually seen “femme” in the context of role-playing and gender identity in some lesbian sub-cultures. The complementary terms “butch” and “femme” refer to both gender performance through dress and behavior (“femme” being the more “feminine”) and also to the roles they prefer in sexual relationships (“femme” women usually not the initiator, the more passive partner).
    Granted, most of my knowledge comes from more historical research (eg lesbian subcultures in the mid-twentieth century), so this may not perfectly describe the meaning of these words today.
    What’s unclear to me is if these writers are using it as code for “lesbian” or if they’re NOT aware of the lesbian connection, and are just using it to mean “female”?

    So maybe this is getting out of hand, I definitely see your point UCLAbodyimage, maybe feministing shouldn’t post these so we don’t get more crap hate-mail dumb boys trying once again to out do each other… I hope we’re keeping names though so that we can track these jerks down if they say anything threatening or extra stupid…

    Oh jeeze, and I was eating, too. This person is utterly terrified of women, isn’t he?
    Seems like this guy needs a biology lesson, too. A “cunt” is not an “ass”, and vice-versa.

    P.S. Some of these are so extreme and stupid that I can’t help wondering if they’re just TRYING to get people riled up?
    My brother and sister sometimes blithely say extreme, sexist things just to see if they can get me to react before I realize they’re baiting me . . . nothing this hateful, of course, but it makes me wonder if we’re maybe just giving them what they want? (As UCLA suggested . . .)

    And when will these boys get new material? Geez. If you’re going to attempt an insult, at least be creative.

    Dear Sad Little Man,
    Too* – means also
    To* – is a preposition
    So what you meant was, “really disgusting porn TOO (meaning, in addition to my point).”
    Now, if you’ll excuse me. I have to go sit in my cage and not be smart.

    Of course. What else could it be? It’s not like this guy is saying anything of intelligence here. He’s just repeating the same bullshit any other anti-feminist would when trying to get feminists all riled up.
    By the way, when someone becomes desperate to piss someone off, and it becomes overwhelmingly OBVIOUS, then it really doesn’t piss me off. It’s just too easy to make fun off. This guy has no life, I’m sure.

    I agree with tofutti 100%
    While I am all for shining a spotlight on sexist idiots showing their true colors (and poking fun where fun is due) these mailbag posts from today just look desperate for attention and trying as hard as they can to come up with as many things that they can to “piss you off.”
    It seems very falsified, clearly the people writing these letters are asshats but these just seem purposely exaggerated and not very believably.

    “By the way, when someone becomes desperate to piss someone off, and it becomes overwhelmingly OBVIOUS, then it really doesn’t piss me off.”
    Yes, exactly… this guy is just what the internet calls a “troll.” While I’m sure that he is a dyed-in-the-wool woman-hater, he only wrote that email just to get people riled up.
    If someone REALLY wants to get me riled up, they should be like commentators on FoxNews and couch their misogyny in bullshit and say something like, “I am a supporter of women because what women REALLY want is to stay at home and raise their family.” Grr!

    I actually just used mouth wash before I read this. Now, I have to go wash my brain. All the hate is gross. And yeah . . . even if he is purposefully ‘baiting,’ it’s still pretty damn hateful and I think ‘wow, dude, I NEVER want my brain to think anything close to that.’

  19. Posted December 14, 2007 at 7:40 pm | Permalink

    My man is very good for cooking and fucking (better at the first than I am, actually). I am the philosophy major in the couple and so my logic naturally exceeds his. Still, I value him for other things as well. Memo to anti-feminist idiots: straight girls can be kick-ass feminists and bend gender roles, too.

    Jessica –
    Do you get letters like these often?
    I think it’s odd that something as (relatively) inane as panties would provoke such disgusting responses. I mean, you’ve talked about considerably more touchy things in the past.

    Okay, I call shenanigans on this one. This is somebody trying to be an ass, but he’s still being revealing. I’ll peel it like an onion:
    Layer one: on its surface, an absolutely vile screed towards women expressing an outrageous, violent, and frightening attitude.
    Layer two: writing this is an outwardly confident frat boy type who considers himself to be a funny, witty guy. He enjoys “pushing the envelope” with his humor and prides himself on being “un-PC.” He enjoys 4chan and Dane Cook. He thinks this email is satire but he wouldn’t know satire if it wore a sign.
    Layer three: inside that confident frat boy persona is a scared, insecure little man who doesn’t understand women and is deeply unnerved by women who stand up for themselves. His proud “un-PC” persona is an accurate depiction of his insecurity with himself as a man, which is where his deep held misogyny stems from.
    Amiright, guys?

    Word, Tofutti. This business of clumsily going through a checklist trying to push our buttons is just sad.
    The real threats, as ForbiddenComma points out, are those who couch their sexism in polite language which sounds reasonable to a less-informed audience.

    When I read “If you were my wife,” I thought that sentence was going to end with “I would have wheelbarrowed you to the funny farm on day one, as only a woman who has completely lost her mind would choose a slimeball like me over plastic dicks in the cunt ass.”
    And, yes, I just used “wheelbarrow” as a verb.

  37. Posted December 15, 2007 at 12:29 am | Permalink

    It’s kind of fascinating that of all the posts and causes on this site, this hostility has been triggered by a campaign to stop little girls being sexualised. You would have thought conservatives and feminists could agree on that one.

    I’d wish you the same if it weren’t so obviously irrelevant. Well, I hope the majority of your mail is kind spirited.

    Um…it really bothers me that anal sex is used as a degrading threat. Because that’s all our bodies were meant to provide, right?
    This guy is disturbed. I’m willing to bet good cash money (that I earned myself outside of a kitchen, thank you very much) that he masturbates frequently to violent porn.
    I know we all get this kind of crap once in a while, but it just kinda wears you down after a bit. It makes my heart sad that this kind of anger can be stirred up so easily. But, on the plus side, I think you’re right in pointing out it’s probably because he’s threatened by awesome, ass-kicking women. And that makes my heart feel much better.

    First, as an avid reader of this blog and first time commenter, I have to say that this hate mail made me laugh, not because it’s funny but because it’s ridiculous. This person can’t even distinguish the difference between “to” and “too” (and cunt/ass? What’s that about?!) which, is a pretty big deal for someone who is trying to argue that we are the less intelligent sex who are incapable of reason and logic. Second, I’d like to thank you Jessica for being a positive role-model for all those intelligent, independent, self-assured young women out there (and for those who have yet to find their route to feminism).
    P.S. I just ordered your book online..Can’t wait to read it!!

    Dear Frat Boy,
    You’re gross. You’re REALLY gross. I know that you were joking, but seriously dude. Gross, depraved humor is not my bag, baby. Please, do humanity a favor and give up on dating entirely. If most women knew that your sense of humor was actually sick and depraved, I’m positive that they wouldn’t go out with you. In my ideal world, a Realdoll would not exist, but for you, I’d be more than willing to make an exception. It wouldn’t be able to cook for you though, sorry. But after many years of partying non-stop through college and being kicked out of a couple of private colleges, you’ll probably end up living with your parents anyway. Taco Tuesdays, eh?
