    Joe Rogan once said that male feminists are weasels. I used to think this was an unfair remark, but maybe he's right. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for gender equality and feminism in the traditional sense. But these guys seem to build their entire identity around it. I'd wager that at least some of them are actually sexual predators. Even if they are serious, they are all too scrawny and weak to actually protect and defend women from this male abuse that they constantly allude to.

    It's like a cult video, I half expected Marshall Applewhite to make an appearance.

    Joe Rogan says idiotic things at times. He's just a talking head on the Internet. There's extremists and stupid people in all movements.

    Sometimes, although I enjoy his podcast. But, what is your opinion of this group of male feminists? I would say the word "weasel" describes them better than any other.:tearsofjoy:

    I'll watch it later and get back to you as I'm listening to music on my phone on my way home at the moment.

    If women ask you not to help them or be chivalrous, put them in the army, and to give them "work", that's also part of being Chivalrous, consider the Midwife's tale on Canterbury Tales, think of Woodrow Wilson.

    Certainly. I’ve known and seen some pretty deceptive males prey upon females by pretending to be feminists. They’ll say anything and everything, all of the sweetest and right things to promote female equality, feminism and to praise females while having ulterior motives. A lot of females eww and ahh over them. The average person can be very clever at this. I even warned a female once about a guy I knew who was playing her and just got called a pig and a misogynist. A lot of women aren’t that naive though and their BS detectors are functioning soundly.

    Not all males are this way, but I’ve seen and known a lot of them who are.

    It’s no different with anything else. Anyone can say the sweetest of things and act/pretend any which way while having ulterior motives in anything.

    Makes me wonder just what kind of woman the apologies are for.

    The pathologically narcissistic thot streamer with multicolor day-glow hair maybe ?

    I may be wrong, but somehow I don't think many females will "eww and ahh" over the guys in this video. Just a guess.

    Being honest, I have not watched the video yet, I’m more concerned with the average happenings in everyday life among the regular people. If this video has guys that are deliberately of a certain makeup to be comical or make it look absurd, then I’d guess also the same as you :).

    Hey, don't blame hot women for taking advantage of the male thirst market. You like capitalism, right?;)

    50% of what they say is spot on, 30% is pretty stupid and 20% is clearly dangerous horse-pucky, no heros in that lot.

    The comments from the opposite extreme are worse than the video, as they usually are.
    Certainly there are men who try to get in women's good graces through feminist allusions (though certainly not my view of feminism, which is neither about protecting women or accusing men), but I've never met anyone who subscribes to the notion of 'alpha male protector/beta male cuck' who wasn't a bigger danger to women and men than so called white knights.

    It made me think of a rehab facility with state-approved android therapists.
    Creepy.

    I agree that the "red pill" notions are inaccurate and often toxic. However, something is definitely creepy about these guys in the video...not to mention, they actually reinforce sexist stereotypes by implying that women are less logical and more emotional.
