Reason for Optimism

You’ve probably heard about Melanie McDonagh’s brain-dead article at the Spectator about paternity testing. But look at the comments… Not many feminists there, that’s for sure. I’m optimistic about the future of the MRM :)

Just one example, from Steven:

“I want to sincerely thank Melanie and other feminists I’ve read or spoken to over the years. I am a young man who used to consider myself a feminist when I thought it was about promoting the idea that men and women are both valuable and one sex isn’t intrinsically better than the other. That was my definition of “equal.” Not equal in all abilities or biology, but equal in worth as human beings with complimentary roles in life.
Thank you for opening my eyes to the fact that I was misled. Feminism does not stand for what I believe in. Your article makes this quite clear. Please keep letting the world know what feminism is really about.
You’re right when you say “DNA tests are an anti-feminist appliance of science.” But they are a pro Humanist application of science, and must be mandatory.”

(emphasis mine)

    Well… didn’t take too long for some whack-job to spill into the comments either.

    “Dr.” Lemonist:
    “I don’t see the big deal. How else can you get a bloke to hang around and give you a chance to live your own life and not just be a mummy. Women are at a distinct disadvantage because they get stuck with the main consequences of pleasure and passion.
    It is unfair that Father Nature is such a misogynist and forces us to make up constraints like marriage, fidelity, chastity, and all that customary conceit just to get men to grant women some basis of commonality, partnership, and equal trust with them so we can fool around without paying for it like they can if they don’t buy into society’s lies about sexual honor and decency.
    Until wombs can be safely removed and cared for by science, we have to keep men in line and held to a standard of responsibility by which the rightful Priestesses of Gaia can judge them. I say take what you can for now, girls, while he’s still blind to the truth. Once we free them from this burden they will run wild and only cause trouble for everyone. There is no other option, for now.”

    Now, granted, this could be an example of Poe’s Law…

    Yep, I think it’s a parody of the feminist viewpoint.
    But it wouldn’t surprise me if some feminists believed that biology is a secret patriarchal plan to oppress women :)

    That’s not a parody. It’s merely reinforcing a cultural battle that had already been won by feminists four years ago.

    The Conspiracy Against Cuckolds

    There appears to be a consensus among medical professionals that husbands should not be told when they are not their wife’s child’s father.

    Paternity DNA tests are meaningless, since medical practitioners will automatically lie to a cuckolded husband.
