    That Donglegate article is pretty good. The comments section has turned into a reactionary cesspool, unfortunately.

    Speaking of reactionary, though, that “6 things that happened” article is Facebook meme level hogwash. 50% “nothing is ever good enough” lefty sub sub sub sub sub-culture whining, 50% Saxby Chambliss level “logic”.

    Honestly, I’m tired of this whole “While you were occupied with gay marriage” crap. It’s derailing and insulting as if to imply LGBT rights are unimportant.

    “While you were preoccupied with same sex marriage” ..??? Wow, so as a lesbian woman I shouldn’t have been preoccupied with an issue that affects my partner and I directly? Thanks!

    The Donglegate article is really well done and has a lot to offer – though I didn’t really appreciate how it seems to focus on how feminism and MRA are polar opposites. The thing that really gets under my skin about MRAs is that really, they sort of want a lot of the same things feminists want in terms of gender equality. They just ignore a lot of the information we already have on it and focus too much on their own plight. Feminism isn’t just about women anymore – we have to work together to advance society. And I feel like the article implies that feminism is still just a women’s issue.

    The comments are just sickening. Stuff like that makes me feel almost hopeless. How will we ever get anywhere if the general public holds opinions like those reflected there? The negative stereotype of feminism so many people seem to believe is so frustrating.

    That “preoccupied” article was kind of offensive. I was following several of the issues the author brought up in ADDITION to following same sex marriage, and that doesn’t make marriage equality any less important of an issue. Yes, there are levels of privilege, but that doesn’t mean we should stop fighting for the ones we don’t have.
