Feminist Academic Condemns Mr Men Joke As 'mansplaining'

Recommended Posts

Is it any wonder the younger generation are getting thought of as soft when you see articles such as the one below, some people can't see something for what it is, a simple joke.  Do these people do it just to see their name in the media, see something they don't like and take offence. Years ago something like this would be just laughed off but not now it's straight to social media and get it all over the Internet. They want a world where everything is politically correct.

Yes...because surely nobody is stupid enough to actually take the book seriously

I think the only moaning snowflake is the mentioned "academic" 😀

Or the words of a PHD student.

 

Of course, there is the possibility that she's making a joke herself, by parodying radical feminist textual analysis.

 

I can't imagine that the Telegraph would spot something so subtle though. 😀

The younger generation getting soft? Oh, right. Perhaps they've been frightened by beards.

I don't think you know what politically correct even means. Of course people want a world where things are politically correct - and if you don't you should. 

 

What happens now is the right-wing media put stuff like this out there which probably causes minimal offence to the person raising the issue - but maximum offence to people who didn't  - like you.

 

Then people like you write about it - and other people like you get offended about it - and before you know it there's loads of people all really angry at everybody who shows any offence to anything - like casual sexism, racism etc. - calling them "snowflakes" etc.

 

It's dead easy to see through - next time  apply this logic and you'll feel better.

I think you have it wrong.

It's the girl who got offended first... and last! And I wouldn't even call it minimal offence based on her reactions 😀 I  don't think MSN news are offended by her. Nor OP is. I am definitely not offended by her, I'm not angry at her. We write about it here because we find her ridiculous, foolish and a bit comical. At least I am.
