You remember being 14, bragging to your peers about how totally wasted you are (“Yeah I can actually drink three strawberry Maddog 20/20s before I puke, it’s pretty awesome”), lecturing about how stupid adults are and how you read half of the Fountainhead and ‘Ayn Rand totally had it all figured out, and no, it’s pronounced “Aye-enn,” you socialist dipshit,’ etc. You remember that. You don’t admit it but you remember it.
Jimmy Zinn remembers it, because it is happening to him right now. The only difference between you and Jimmy Zinn is that Jimmy Zinn is 19 instead of 14 and you never wrote your moronic opinion in a letter and mailed it to the local paper so everyone would laugh at you.
In advance I’d like to apologize for my writing in this email being below my usual standard- I haven’t sleep for 48 hours and am completely smashed on 100% pure California nightrain express wine…but anyway:
My name is Jimmy Zinn and I’m a die hard MRA and hard rock fan. I’m 19 years old, and I’m not to happy with the current state of affairs. I’ve decided to dedicate my life to what I’m calling the three revolutions- the hard rock revolution, the Men’s rights revolution, and the life extension revolution(concerning promoting the developments of medical technologies to radical extend the human lifespan.)
Two of these are indirectly pointed at people like you- bigoted feminists who marginialize and trivailize* the male gender, promoting sexist and discrimination attitudes, and fighting vivaciously for the very thing you vehemently claim to be so against- gender inequality.
* yes yes, spelling mistakes. great. idfc. im wasteeeeeeeeeeeeeed motherfucka!
See, over the last 20 years, 2 terrible things have happened:
1. Music sucks.
2. Discrimination of males increases at an alarming rate.
Now I’m not particularly happy with either one. Things at home weren’t going particularly well- girls with lower GPAs and poor extra ciriculars were getting scholarships that boys with perfect 4.0s were not, and since I’, one of the poor privileged white males, I couldn’t afford college. Getting a job was tricky to- I was told on more than one occasion “we aren’t hiring white males right now.” Indeed, it did appear that 90% of those waiting in the unemployment office were male. After 23 interviews/applications, I was left still jobless. I also become of the privileged white males who developed heart problems at age 18, but of course, couldn’t afford a doctor. I was going to go to a free heart screening at a local college, but whoops…. “FEMALES ONLY”, courtesy of the “Women’s radical feminist men hating Heart association of a women-only America”, or whatever it was called.
Well, I decided “this sucks”, and decided to set out to star ta revolution and become the next great American (and global) icon. So, I jumped on a slow moving freight train as it passed*, which started a journey hitch-hiking to Los Angeles.
* I’m sure you’ll be quick to point out on your blog that this is a felony and I am a criminal…whats interest that if a woman did the same you’d laud her as a “bad-ass heroine” or “kick-ass chik” or some nonsense.
but anyway, here I am.
Rebecca, I am going to radical alter our society in the next year. I am going to start the greatest hard rock 1986 GNR-esqe band the world has ever seen. There is an army, millions strong, of angry people, and especially young males seething at the lack of justice and outlet for their rage. I fear a violent revolution is near, and I’m not in favor of that idea at all. Instead, why not give them a kick-ass 24/7 rock n roll party, tearing through the country with blistering blues-based rock, finally giving red-blooded masculinity a place in American culture again. I am going to fight the bigoted feminist you propagate, and start the largest social movement since the 60s…the Mens rights revolution.
I’m in hollywood right now, partying, crusin’ down sunset strip, spreading the MRA message, rockin out at the whiskey, troubador,
We’re coming, Rebecca. The walls of mass social delusional, ignorance and apathy will crumble down as justice and non-autotuned music will triumph in the streets. You will fight back, I’m sure, but you will lose, and you will lose badly. In 3 years time, you WILL live in an American of true gender equality, but I’m not sure it’s going to take the direction you expect!
Feel free to post this on your blog- in fact, I might even start a daily blog of my own to illiustrate what the legitmate MRA issues are. While I concede there is an unfortunately population in the MRA community who are misogynistic and who don’t hold true gender equality in high esteem, I am very sure that the vast majority of MRAs are far less bigoted than yourself.
For example, why is it wrong for men to seek correction in the heavily women-favored family and divorce court system? Why is it wrong for fathers to want equal access for their children? Why is it wrong for men to want equal enforcement in gender equality laws, eg title IX where schools with heavily disproportionately high female athletes are ignored by the NCAA, but schools with a 1% proportion disbalance favoring are forced to cut the male indoor track team for “budget issues”
Our scoiety is incredible anti-male…we are vilified, insulted, exploited.
I will have intriguing enticements such as “why the wage-gap is the myth”, “why violence against males goes encouraged”, “why women support abuses of male reproductive rights”, and hundreds of other subjects I’m sure you’ll love disecting with your other misandrist friends.
Why should my life have to be a punishment just for being born male? I see as 95% of the homeless here are male, and feminists dont give a shit, and it pisses me off. i hear stories of men who lost everything, houses ans pensions included, to an ex-wife who divorced out of spite. and it pissed me off. i read stats that the fed. gov. spends 15x more of women specific health issues on a PER DEATH RATIO (meaning for every death, maternity issues excluded.)
But don’t worry, we’ll be getting to all of that. In the mean time, you can brood over one question- as a woman, what is ONE constitutionally legal right you don’t have, that I do as a male? (There’s only one right non-stupid answer, lets see if you get it right!)
You’ll be seeing the name Jimmy Zinn quite a lot, feel free to follow my twitter….its the one called “jimmy zinn” thats been spamming you earlier this afternoon.
