MRA's are the group that has disturbed me and haunted me the most of any F Plus subject. They bring out my own form of Internet crazy. They make me want to write asinine solutions to the problem of them and their attitude.
Now more than ever, it feels like the MRA's are breeding potential predators, serial rapists, and mass shooters. The connection is tenuous, but they encourage isolating behavior and thought and that anger and loneliness turn into some of the ugliest things imaginable. All hate speech is harmful, but to start blaming your problems and unhappiness on not just a religion or a country or an ethnicity, but a gender? Half the population of earth? That's a lot of people to hate. That fucks with the already fucked up brains of men (white men, right?) ages 13-25. I mean, it's already happened this year! Whose to say it won't happen again? These men are a hate group and with that comes real world violence.
Another crazy thing that happens when I think about these idiots is how to solve the problem of self-imposed hate-virginity. I start fantasizing about dosing these morons with LSD at an MRA convention so they can sob into their wicker fedoras and ask themselves some deep questions locked deep in their heads. I think about making a TV show where we try to unfuck their stupid thoughts, give them a decent haircut, get them to eat a vegetable or two? See what life is like when you drink water instead of fucking soda all day?
These people bother me so much because I think all young men who feel a bit lonely know that impulse to blame other people for your feelings. No one is telling you otherwise, because you're by yourself all the time. Another absolutely insane idea is to steal Amaterdam's sex education system.
When I was blogging for a hot second this year, I did this story on Amaterdam's sex education system. It's called "Love Week," and it starts in kindergarten and goes throughout a student's education. As a kindergartener, you talk about love and friendships, what's it mean to love someone, that sort of thing. As you get older, Love Week evolves, so you learn about how to properly show affection, what's not acceptable in a loving relationship, how to start a dating relationship and be respectful of each other. Then again, America (I mean Texas) would fuck this curriculum up somehow. But even fucked up Texas Love Week would be better than the acquiescence we have to hate. We just live with it.
I'm glad we did this episode when we did, but I think if we did it now, it would feel like reading ISIS's social media.
Just love each other, folks, OK? I love you weirdos and I want you to love this world. I know how crazy that sounds.
