It’s been a while since I got some hate email. This week I got two pieces of hate email from the same person. They were sent to me in about 10 minutes of each other.
“Dora” (I think that’s her name from the email address) wrote in her first email:
It pains me to see someone distort the truth to such an exaggeration that they would deny themselves the greatest gift in the world, a child. I truly hope you and the rest of society set aside petty differences and misunderstandings to find the true meaning of what it is to fight for freedom. Maybe a letter from Harry T. Burn’s mother would help or a book by Susan Faludi or maybe an encounter with someone like Mariya Dolina. I wish you nothing but happiness in the future, but will hope for the day you will understand even a fraction of a woman.
I haven’t said for sure that I would “deny” myself a child. I may go to a place like the Rotunda Clinic in India which would use my sperm to produce a child via a surrogate mother. I’m not sure if I will end up doing that but I don’t think that is what Dora had in mind.
And fighting for freedom? Dora really had to pick three examples of anti-freedom women. There’s Harry T. Burn’s mom who used shaming language to get the 19th Amendment passed which is responsible for the expanding socialist state that has brought us to the brink economically and is responsible for the loss of our freedom since 1920. Yes, she used shaming language:
Dear Son: Hurrah and vote for suffrage! Don’t keep them in doubt! I notice some of the speeches against. They were bitter. I have been watching to see how you stood, but have not noticed anything yet. Don’t forget to be a good boy and help Mrs. Catt put the “rat” in ratification. Your mother
Harry T. Burn voted for the 19th Amendment because “a good boy always does what he is told”. Susan Faludi is a feminist which is anti-freedom. Mariya Dolina fought for the totalitarian socialist Soviet Union.
Then there’s the “I don’t understand women”. Like most women she doesn’t understand herself so she refuses to believe that a man understands women. If you’re a man in the part of the internet you know the deal. And let’s not forget how much “pain” Dora is in because of me. It’s the pain of a man knowing the real deal about women.
Here is Dora’s second email:
I personally would not follow through with many of the laws out there. For example, even if my husband divorced me, I would not take a dime from him. I’m too proud and work too hard. You’re probably thinking BS!!!!! Well, you do not know the capabilities of the true women that believe in climbing the ladder on their own and in a truly independent manner. I feel your blog just perpetuates the cycle of beating down people like me and turning some which there may be hope for bitter causing lawsuits and what not to make you mad and here’s the cycle all over again… You know what I’m saying?
This is one big, “I’m not like that”. Dora predicted correctly that I would think its BS but that isn’t a difficult prediction to make. Why is it Dora’s “true women” make up less than 0.1% of the female population? The rest define what “true women” are.
I have to ask what was the point of these emails? If Dora was really concerned about a “perpetuating cycle” of animosity between the sexes why is she here and emailing me? This is an unknown blog in the larger culture/world. While I would love this blog to have influence over the wider world the fact is that it doesn’t. We have all seen these women who come on to MRA forums and blogs who start telling us how we need to “moderate” our tone to get female support and how we sound like the mirror image of feminists. Yet, these women never do anything to try and convince other women out of their feminism. Dora is the same. Unless Dora thinks I really am a reptile alien than runs the Illuminati (and thus have the influence that would make writing such emails sensible) she’s full of crap on this point.
Lastly, I have to say that I miss women telling me that I have a small dick. It’s much more efficient than BS like these two emails and we can get straight to the point of the woman who said it is full of crap.
