    Have you ever encountered people online who are looking out for the Illuminati or some sort of New World Order, and they are so senseless in their paranoia, that they take explicit jokes about the Illuminati and the New World Order to be more legitimate evidence of their existence? Like, pointing out an episode of the Simpsons that dwells on the Illuminati, or the Weird Al song where she suddenly starts rambling about the Illuminati, as if these are signgs that someone like me is somehow not noticing.

    It's the same thing here.

    There are many legitimate feminist issues, but these do not include (to start at the most laughable) "mansplaining" and making boys play with dolls. While the feminists post nonsense on Tumblr, on the other side of the city women are being beaten up and raped in the streets, but that is an issue your average feminist just will not touch as too many rapists aren't white.

    I said, "What if someone actually takes this silly thread seriously?"

    Now look: We have a honeypot for the Illuminati.

    Too early Jennifer. I am sure there are members here who still miss INFPglobalchatter. That place was fine.

    Some people are just looking for excuses to be offended. The fact that the cause of their outrage is a joke is immaterial.

    It's especially funny when the people in question spend a good chunk of their time complaining about feminists and Social Justice Warriors looking for excuses to be offended.

    I dont know why anyone would have taken it seriously, it was April Fools so I expected something, also I thought it was a split off from that other thread in any case and it had sort of taken a turn for the absurd anyway, suggesting that any rational calculators would forego marriage or even dating because of feminism.

    Which if its even serious, and I've no idea you meet some strange people online, sounds more like closet homosexuality or mysogyny than it does any protest about feminism.
