Hold onto your butts.
Could only get page 1 of 3. It seemed typical of the news media though in that it was looking for the sensational extreme to report and not what drives the issue.

Many writers on AVfM, including myself, are female. I was also present on a conference call with a producer of this show with three other prominent women in the movement so that we could convince these morons that it’s not an issue of men against women. The producer refused to engage in conversation with any of the women available for his questions.
My name is Diana Davison and I am proof that Paul Elam is not a woman hater. I am also proof that the Men’s Rights Movement is not an issue of men against women, it is an issue of calling out feminist liars who are slowly eroding the moral fabric of society with their ideology.
Diana’s experience is no surprise to me. Conflict is the hot seller right now. Look at all these inane reality shows. “Survivor can’t just be the fittest and best wins. It has to have deceit and conniving back stabbing inserted by the producers. Same with the Big Brother house, the Kardashians, etc. Who would really live in that kind of environment? This is an excerpt from a comment I made Wednesday, 10/18 on a blog where the author had had a bad experience while participating in a segment for and HBO documentary. The players are different, but rest assured the game is much the same.
“Once the filming began it is likely someone from HBO was present or screening the dailies. They would have pushed the producer/director to shoot scenes with drama, conflict and overblown emotions, both good and bad, to appeal to a particular demographic. That’s when things can get uncomfortable and outright shameful. The end product can become slanted, narrowly focused and maudlin. “Without Pity” can quickly become just the opposite. In the interest of full disclosure and honesty, I have not seen the film and may be misrepresenting it. I am, however, presenting an accurate picture of how the industry in general works. The 4 S’s sell: Sensation, sex, strife and sentimentality. They will inevitably focus on one or more to reach an audience. They find the plain truth to be somewhat boring and the pursuit of mammon will taint the effort and distort the intent. Perhaps if they themselves were living that truth, they might seek out the heroic and stoic. Once you signed the release it was beyond your control what they did with the images. If they betrayed you, it is to their shame and not yours. Be at peace about it and continue to have a blessed life.”
I waited and waited and the piece never came.
That was two months ago.
Now they’re finally doing it.
I thought the reason for the delay was because some higher up stopped them at the last minute realizing that no matter how they spun it, it would put AVFM (and by extension the entire manosphere) on the map.
I guess I gave the left credit for more brains than they actually have.
Because now they really ARE going to put the manosphere on the map!
There’s no such thing as bad press.
Hell, ‘bad press’ was how I was first introduced.
Back in 2010, I was blogging about something unrelated and stumbled upon Lady Rain’s site.
She was ranting and raving about these PUA guys and about how they were cheating women out of their God given right to a man’s love, money, and attention blah blah blah oh, the humanity!
And I thought hmmmmm, sounds interesting!
And from there the Pandora’s Box was opened.
I can’t be arsed to read this MSM drivel, but lol’d that the link (and, presumably, the headline) begin “women battle online anti-women hate …”
Because, of course, it’s all about the wimminz, and, of course, they’re strong independent ass-kicking and BATTLING, damn it. And also victims.
Ahahahahahahahaha, wow. I’m so glad you showed me that. It makes me glad that I started blogging again after taking a month or so off.
