    Default I'm sorry for being a man

    Why the Marxists here can't get into power...

    David Cunliffe: I'm sorry for being a man | Stuff.co.nz

    Labour leader David Cunliffe's apology for being a man is "insulting" because not all men are abusive, Prime Minister John Key says.

    "It's a pretty silly comment from David Cunliffe," Key said.

    "The problem isn't being a man, the problem is if you're an abusive man, and I think it's a bit insulting to imply that all men are abusive.

    "A small group are and they need to change their behaviour and be held to account.

    "Is he really sincere about that statement? Tomorrow afternoon is he going to go down to the local rugby club and say 'I'm sorry for being a man'? I don't think so."

    Cunliffe made the apology at a Women's Refuge symposium today, where he also pledged to invest an extra $60 million into family violence services.

    He spoke of the "bullshit, deep-seated sexism" still prevalent in New Zealand.

    It's a stupid statement that only encourages group-think.

    Sorry for being a man
    Sorry for being straight
    Sorry for being cisgender
    Sorry for being fit
    Semi-sorry for being a white-hispanic

    And that's how leftists/liberals/feminists get elected

    I didn't answer yes to any of those, and this is what I got.

    Apologizing for being white and male is stupid. Being knowledgeable about history isn't. Post-structuralism is dead.

    Your CINEMA score is 38.5 out of 80.

    You are clearly a cultural Marxist. Congratulations!
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    I'm not sorry for being a man; just sorry for living amongst ignorant people who have dogmatic views about what it means to be a man.

    That kind of visceral self hatred really gets me fired up - how can anyone seriously believe that kind of shit?

    TBH I don't think there is much sincerity involved here but some men do genuinely feel bad about being male, and are antagonistic to men who aren't the same way.

    That test looks like an INTP's idea of trolling. I get that impression from the statistics page especially: Statistics of Cooijmans Inventory of Neo-Marxist Attitudes

    I got 6 out of 80 by the way.
