The engagement of bitter anti-marriage commenter Mark Minter and sweet commenter Kate reminded me of something I observed for a long time.
The rule of “Don’t listen to what they say, look at what they do” does not apply solely (or even mainly) to women.
The saying “An MRA is one blowjob away from becoming a feminist” is perhaps not true. But what is true, is that an MRA is one blowjob away from becoming a calm, pleasant human being*.
To some people, this realization will be negative, and to some positive. I suspect submissive wife-material women will not like this, as this means men can commit the same disconnectedness between words and action as them. Anti-marriage men will not like this, as it probably weakens their belief in effective marriage-strike. Incorrigible romantics will probably like this, as they think love conquers all, even the harsh red pill reality.
But whether we like it or not, it’s a real effect, which becomes apparent the longer you look.
*This is not a shaming tactic. Bitterness is one of MRAs’ specialties. There is nothing offensive about saying so (it is the truth), and nothing shameful about being so (it is for a reason).
