Its a pity there isn’t more focus on the relentless harassment of males in the media, demonising a generation of young men.

I know, men are SO hated that nobody wants to marry them anymore. That’s the REAL reason there’s no weddings on at the moment.

You know the last time I saw a highly-paid male footballer, male CEO, male law firm partner, male headmaster, male astronaut, male colonel, male Prime Minister, male commercial barrister, male surgeon, male hedge fund manager, male fashion designer, male rock star, male pilot, male TV presenter, male oil rig worker or male business owner?

Never – they are ALL women!

That’s what you get because of women – all the harassment and demonisation stopping men has driven them underground to live in caves.

Of course, the SJWs call it a ‘pandemic’, but the REAL reason the streets were empty is because men didn’t want to be hounded for being men anymore.

No need to speculate whether you’re a man or a woman given how spectacularly unfunny this was…

God Help Female Clients

And no need to speculate why women are stalked, raped, harassed and murdered everyday.

As you were.

...if you represent them

and no need to speculate why people conflate ‘stalking’ and ‘harassing’ with rape and murder.

How do you plan to ever reproduce with a human female if you genuinely believe they are all out to ‘harass’ and ‘demonise’ men?

Serious question. Will you enjoy the office enough not to ever bother with a family?

Not all women.

But some. And some men.

Ehe

To quote the students of today – God, you’re a bit ‘triggered’, aren’t you?
