PostAre All Men Trash? Discussion
by Tomous » Wed Jun 26, 2019 4:56 pm

strawberry float me, it really is a weird place.

A Brazilian streamer lost a sponsorship deal because a video or tweet or something surfaced of her saying "all men are trash" in response to harassment.

Lots of ResetEra posters jumping over themselves to agree MEN ARE TRASH and anyone going against that grain gets the ban hammer:

To be fair it's fantastic for new game announcements. I tend to delve in to the more stupid stuff for laughs more than anything.

Pretty much the only reason I still use the site, and even then I’m mostly lurking.

I have no idea who these people are, but this type of constantly negative, downtrodden, self loathing permeates their boards...

Men as a collective and most concepts of masculinity are in fact toxic and trash. See: homophobia, rape culture, misogyny, etc.

We’re trash. I would know, I’m a man.

(I don't disagree with that. Men as a singular collective are trash. Sorry boys.)

Surely it depends which parts of that singular collective you pay most attention to. I refuse to believe that, of the sum total of males on Earth, the majority are complete trash. I think you're just extrapolating too much from the trash you see.

Even jokes aren't allowed.

I actually thought it was quite funny.



If Grcade for whatever unlikely reason ever needed a member cull, we'd just need to invite the ResetEra Mods to takeover for a week. We'd all be banned by the end of it.

This could well be one of the most ridiculous bannings i've seen so far.

Since when was 'do not generalise am entire group of people' worthy of mod action? What on earth have they been snorting?

But that's not looking at it as a collective, and that's an important distinction.

Is every singular man on the planet trash? No. Are men as a social group? Undoubtedly. Men have destroyed the planet's ecosystem, men perpetuate systems that discriminate and abuse, men are behind the vast majority of conflicts and (ha) man made catastrophies this world has seen.

Every act of violence I’ve ever been involuntarily involved in, every story I’ve heard in my entire life about friends or friends of friends who’ve been beaten for being in any way different (usually gay, sometimes because they were punks or goths), every girlfriend who’s ever had a story about being raped or assaulted, it always comes down to the same gooseberry fool - straight men with a very specific idea of what makes a man a man. gooseberry fool they were either taught or grew up seeing celebrated by other banana splits around them.

Oh god I've become everything I hate...

But yeah, that's exactly the point. The #notallmen brigade aren't able, intentionally or otherwise, to see the point of the argument. They reduce it down to a personal attack on their own manhood rather than a critique of systematic masculinity.

And you place more importance on that because those are the incidents you hear about. You don't hear about the vast, vast majority of people who just get on with their lives, go to work, go home, have dinner, go to bed, because why would you hear about that?

It's easy to assume that the world is gooseberry fool, when all you're made aware of is the gooseberry fool bits.

Taf, what would your reaction be if I said what you said, but substituted the word "men" with literally any other group?

I suspect he'd spontaneously combust, Taf's more PC than Scotland Yard. ;)
