Category Archive: Dear god what about the men?

Men think the feminists will benefit from their unique dudely perspective. But trust me, if there’s anything any woman knows better than the back of her hand, it’s the dudely perspective. So just put a sock in it, bra.

Ways In Which the Internet Sucks

meghanmcc

Savage Death Island is happy to launch a new feature. It’s the greatly anticipated Ways In Which the Internet Sucks feature! We begin with a charming instance of Whataboutthemen?! appearing this morning on the Atlantic’s website. But first, the backstory: Meghan McCain — Young Republican, internet columnist, “Colbert Report” guest, and daughter of John — …

The comfortable feminist

I wouldn't let this dude into my kitchen with a ten-foot pole.

UPDATE: I slogged through David Lean’s Dr Zchivago the other night, the primary message of which film is “when the oppressed revolt they become hate-filled thugs, liars, murderers, and cold fish incapable of appreciating Omar Sharif’s doe eyes.” The guy who puts the revolution ahead of his personal life turns into a genocidal maniac and …

Drunk chick interviews snake assassin as he changes his socks

It’s Tuesday, and that means it’s time for another installment of Unrelated Spinster Pronouncements. 1. Poor pit vipers. My last post on the Western diamondback rattler revealed that, herpetologically speaking, many of us have something of a gaping void where our common sense and interspecies empathy ought to be. Although I am no snakespert, it …

Hugs, Twisty: join us as we curl our lip at whiny dads

Dear Twisty, I just read a book review, titled “From Patriarch to Patsy,” linked by Ann Bartow at feministlawprofessors.com and I’m excited to let you know that, not only has feminism succeeded in gaining us equality, we really are now oppressing the men. I am so excited about my total control of reproduction and my …

Outtakes from “Escape from Savage Death Island”

1. While awaiting phlebotomization yesterday at Cancerland, I thumb through a copy of People magazine. Here is what expert sexologist Bristol Palin has to say on the efficacy of magic fundamentalist christian abstinence-juju sex ed: “If girls realized the consequences of sex, nobody would be having sex,” says Bristol, sitting at her parents’ lakeside patio …

What has recognizing your male privilege done for you lately?

Some dudes read heartwarming nature crap blogs. I have no idea why, but read them they do. Sometimes one of these dudes will send an email thanking me for educating him in the mysterious ways of heartwarming nature crappists. And I’ll be all like, dude. Shucks. Gosh. That’s really heartwarming. Let me bear your children. …

Western Painted Turtle of the Week (and some lite blaming)

The Western painted is the state turtle of Colorado. This one was 7 or 8 inches long and every bit as heartwarming as it looks. Some anonymous benefactor has apparently philanthropized millions to 14 colleges, all of which are run by women, with the proviso that the money be used for scholarships for women and …

A couple of stinky stains declare love for patriarchy, MRA-style

Somebody just sent me an email with this subject line: “Newsflash: Dr. Helen (Instapundit’s spouse) is retarded.” I. OK. Even though Liberal Dude role model Jon Stewart delights legions of adolescent boys when he uses it, spinster aunts consider the word ‘retarded’ — once a medical diagnosis used clinically to debase a class of people, …

Protuberance Korner

Fig. 17.b. Behold not one but two genera of the world's most scintillating fungus orders: earthballs. Pisolithus tinctorus (left) and scleroderma bovista. Both fungal globs are the size of your fist. The field guide describes them in terms of tennis balls: half-buried, semi-deflated, and lost for some time. Don't eat'em! You'll puke and puke, just like when you read the BBC news feed.

No doubt you are deeply embarrassed for me, my having developed the unseemly habit of reading the BBC news feed, selecting a grotesque headline from the “Health” section, and dropping it at your feet like some slavering dog with a half-dead rat. And no doubt what I am about to say will raise the concern …
