"How many times do we men suppress our natural instincts for sex and aggression just to get something better in the long run? It’s called a strategy. Sometimes you sacrifice a pawn to nail the queen. If you’re still crying about your pawn when you’re having your way with the queen, there’s something wrong with you and it isn’t men’s rights." - Scott Adams, Dilbert creator, about the "Men's Rights Movement"
Scott Adams, creator of the comic strip Dilbert, recently published a misogynistic essay about "Men's Rights" on his blog. He later deleted it (http://dilbert.com/blog/entry/post_deleted/) and in the comments beneath essentially said it was a big joke to rile women up (the original post has been saved at this blog: http://tinysprout.tumblr.com/post/3713649989/scott-adams-dilbert-deleted-post).
The vast majority of the comments congratulate Scott Adams for being "witty" and getting women in a tizzy.
Sadly, this is par for the course. A man says something insulting and misogynistic, and if women complain they are met with something akin to:
"Can't you take a joke?"
"Don't you have a sense of humor?"
"It's probably because you don't get enough attention from men that you don't find this funny."
Had enough of this? Even a small stand will do -something-. Signing this petition will send a letter to a representative of Dilbert's syndication company, Jan Flemington, expressing disgust at Scott Adam's attempt at "humor" and requesting a statement by Universal UClick Syndication that they do not agree with Scott Adam's statements.
