Someone started a thread in which they exclaimed that only young males (18-40) would be able to survive an end of the world scenario and used the thread to bash women in a big way, to the point that their response to me was the following picture from imgur..

imgur image

They also went on to say that because I felt I was equal to men in a lot of ways that I was in their eyes a man and therefore deserved to be beaten by them.. Now normally I have a lot of fun with people like this as they are clearly angry at something, or just had a woman do something to them that made them feel like they do but it kept bugging me this image he posted so I finally did a line by line response to it.. The - lines denote the original and lines marked R: are my responses. Am i really overreacting? i think I may be.. but sheesh it finally just got to me..


So You think You’re Superior

Line By Line Rebuttal:


- You Have never been forced to die in war.

R: NO, we haven’t we choose to die in war for your freedom.

- You are not capable of performing the same tasks men do because you lack the ambition and devotion to do a good job at anything. This is why you get paid less.

R: You obviously haven’t seen any of my artwork. Which is as good as if not better than some men I know. I am also one of the most driven because of the fact that people don’t think women can or should be doing it.

- You have never ruled the world. Because you lack the enough physical strength and intelligence to lead an army or nation.

R: Two words Angela Merkel and Margaret Thatcher (and for good measure Catherine of Russia)

- The only reason you need wimpy support groups (i.e. Feminism) is because of your primal instinct of inferiority.

R: Hm.. Please direct me to the nearest Feminism Group, there aren’t any around here, and I am pretty sure anywhere else for that matter. However I know of several male only clubs that cater to the need for men to be primal..

- You have never invented anything worth mentioning during the last thousand years of recorded human history. That Computer you’re using, the electricity, the house you live in, the car you drive, the job you work for, the gasoline that fuels your car, the desk the pencil, the paper, and everything you use in your daily life was invented by men.

R: Marie Curie (discovered Radium), Grace Hopper (FORTRAN), Hedy Lammar (Secret Communications System, the precursor of today’s wireless communications), Mary Anderson (Windshield wipers) Stephanie Kwolek (KEVLAR), Rachael Zimmerman (Blissymbol Printer) the lat goes on and on and on..

- Mathematics, philosophy, science, medicine, and all of the important building blocks of modern society were created by men.

R: Actually Mathematics is a pretty base theory and transcends gender, philosophy was not created it is a type of discipline people study, same with Science and Medicine…

- You are only to provide us men with your physical beauty. Which is the only worthy talent you posses besides bearing children. If you can’t do that you’re worthless.

R: uh…. what? Name the last time a MAN gave birth to a child.. Damn straight.

- Now go make me a sandwich

R: No I don’t think so, you see, I’m too busy being productive rather than trying to figure out all the ways that men are superior, so make your own lunch..

Wow, the retarded misogynist rants on ats are bad enough but this is sheer stupidity. Women have accomplished great things in human history, mostly providing a counterweight to a select group of men's domination, destruction and narrow mindedness. And raised the kids on top of it.

No wonder you got mad op.

Fortunately this is a dying viewpoint and these misogynist rants are the last, panicked breath of stupidity, in my opinion as they are truly out of touch with reality. What other species is so insecure as to hate one gender? I can't think of a single animal species that has no use or respect for their females.

Fortunately,most of ats is better than that.

You forgot Queen Elizabeth I....probably one of the greatest rulers in history.



The picture you posted looks like classic troll bait....meant to get under your skin. I realize there are men out there who think that way, but letting them get to you only gives them power. Ignore it as they are inconsequential.

Not that I feel the need to throw it out there, but I am a very powerful woman. I have excelled in a male-dominated society for my entire life. As a child, I was a gifted mathematical prodigy, as well in art. As an adult, I am a scientist and engineer. I also work in international relations and government. And I am skilled in martial arts....I can physically take down men twice my size.

More importantly...I am not alone.
There are many women out there like me...many on ATS. Whomever troll'd you is simply a fool.

No use getting upset over irrational people.

Those who make broad generalizations and point the finger and say things like "Women haven't even discovered anything...cluck cluck" when of course those women were prevented from gaining an education and had no reproductive rights are not worth engaging.

Just the same as women who blame men for all of the violence in the world without taking responsibility for our own role in it all.

Everyone is irrational to some degree, it takes a certain level of maturity to step back and dissect situations and determine what is truly cause and effect.

It is easy to fall into the mob mentality. That you are a part of a group that's special, therefore that other group is unspecial because of this or that.

Do vaginas cause retardation?

Do penises cause extreme fatal violence?

Eh?

No. LOL. Just no.

Again, no use getting worked up over things. Just continue trying your best and doing your best. That's all any of us can do anyway.

We are not in a race war, sex war, homosexual vs straight war, this vs that war...

The only war we are in, is in the war against ourselves.

Like I said normally this guy would have just been food for a frenzy and I would have been laughing with Deb in U2U over it, but for some strange reason he just got to me tonight, and his reposes in the thread become more and more violent and bashing as the day went on. It finally made a little voice in me snap and say "I can't let this moron continue without a response befitting it"

Sometimes, just sometimes, even here on ATS, there are things that give me pause, this was indeed one of them.

Don't bother with it, "If you argue with an idiot, they will drag you down and beat you with experience."

Just saying that men have done and always will do stupid things to impress a woman.

I have been married for nearly twenty years and have always thought of my wife as an equal. I also have a daughter that I teach to have a strong will and hopefully she will not defer to the will of a jerk. Only time can tell if she is learning the lesson.

Exactly.
IMO...OP needs to learn that it isnt necessary to have the need to validate yourself by throwing your "creds" out there to prove anything to that type. Trust me.. he doesnt care, it doesnt make any difference, and in reality he is entitled to his opinion. ( Regardless of how ignorant it is.. its his.)

Knowing my own accomplishments versus someone who thinks as that particular person thinks and being secure in myself and my own abilities.... that thread and his comments didnt bother me a bit!

That's a good lesson to teach. Children actually learn more from watching their caretakers/parents about love than any "speech" from them. If you respect your wife then you have increased her chances of finding a respectful mate by about 100%. Same thing with your wife respecting herself enough to be with someone respectful lol.

Men do act stupid chasing after girls but I think that's anyone when they're really attracted to someone. I wouldn't have wanted any cameras following me around when I was 18, that's for sure. Youth is full of mistakes. It's like that saying about youth being wasted on the young, it's definitely true!

I'd be sorely tempted to reply to such a thing too.

All in all, however, it's really quite desperately and conspicuously sad that some feel the need to self-affirm their "superiority".
Anyone that needs to proclaim "I'm superior" as opposed to simply demonstrating their own facility for greatness, or lack thereof, is most likely far and away from such.
It's like those tiny little dogs that bark like enormously ferocious beasts so long as they're safely beside their owner, or behind the protective barrier of a fence.

Don't be mad.
If anything, feel sorry for them.

You could also direct them to watch the Discovery Channel Naked and Afraid which places one man and one woman, entirely naked and alone into a survival situation where they are then required to survive for several weeks.
I watched several episodes and in near every episode, all the men were total drama queens where the girls did most of the work, and most of the survival.
I haven't watched the whole season, but, the first five episodes are just completely embarrassing to watch for the men.

Episode 03 with the Marine Corps Special Recon Superman guy was particularly hilarious where he spends the first several days rolling around in the sand crying about having a sunburn, while surfer girl has to take care of him and find all the food. The first thing Mr. Super Soldier does when he finally stops crying and rolling around in the sand is to go find poison water and drink it, which results in laying him back down with the diarrhea.
It's just beyond embarrassing.

I keep asking for a 'pig' emoticon. But that would be badmouthing pigs in general and they have a degree of intelligence.

Its been my experience that most women are of a parasitical nature......science tells us their hard wirng has them walking down the aisle and looking over the audience for a suitable replacement in the eventuality the present union fails.....
Women have a penchant for revenge which transcends the average males.....and they are willing to go to most any length to accomplish that self set task....should you cross one, you have created a lifelong enemy of implacable nature......
Women are devious,and certainly ambivalent when it comes to loyalty or their own comforts.
They also tend to be easily led astray.......

Let's see here, does any of that drivel on the picture describe my wife...ummm NO! Matter of fact quite the opposite. Granted there are women that would fit into that category the same as men and I can name a few men it fits like a glove. I suspect the poster of the pic is one of them.

OP, every once in awhile there is someone that just gets under our skin and you need to call them out or in this case a little frying pan attitude adjustment is in order, just make sure it's cast iron it helps in the adjusting. I also suspect that this misguided individual lacks the understanding that men and women are two halves of the came coin. It takes both sides to make a complete coin. Logic is great as far as it goes but women have the emotional side and its understanding that men just don't posses. Any man that does not value his wife's input is missing out on the best solutions. From here I could sing the praises of my wife but I'm sure there are those here that know these things.

OP, thanks for the post and know that we support your rant.

Sexism on ATS? No way!

I wouldnt have even graced that poster with a reply. Let them be ignorant as one day life will sh!t in a letter and post it to them.

I believe the person the OP is referring to used that same show to prove HIS point claiming the women were useless and left all the work to the men! It's amazing how people can look at the same thing and come away with vastly different opinions of what they've seen.

Anyway, as a woman myself I just try my best to ignore people like that. I know who I am and I know my worth... He will be very lonely in this world with his misguided opinions and that to me is solace enough

The latter part of your quote was HOT!


Seriously tho OP you have totally been trolled. And just you giving a response was probably the entire point.
