The point is, if the genders were reversed there would be a public outcry and it would likely make front page headlines.
So the reason I pointed it out was to bring light to the double standard, not because I was offended or it was the only message I gathered from the post.

I could care less what she does with her money, she has the right to do with it as she pleases.

I do think it's a good cause by the way, but the gender restriction is unnecessary in my opinion.
This is the same BS spouted by privileged white males when anyone wants to help minorities; "wah, wah, wah, no fair, why don't you spread the money equally?"

Seriously; why the hell should it bother you if she wants to give her money to women, wombats, or one legged lesbians?

Ok, just so we're clear... so discrimination's cool again?
Spoken like someone who has never experienced discrimination in their lives.
Girl hits guy in public, everyone laughs at the guy.

Guy hits girl in public, everyone within 60 miles radius all rushes up to punch and stomp guy.

"Equality" lol
So you're just going to ignore the fact that the average male is twice as strong as the average female? Whilst it would hurt if my girlfriend punched me as hard as she could, if I did the same I would hospitalise her.

The strong taking advantage of the weak is bullying, and that's why it's deemed unacceptable in society. Not because of some hidden left wing agenda.

ffs.

Because the women, wombats etc., scream and cry about sexism against them when they can't get the things they want. As mentioned previously, I can bet you that if some male entrepreneur does the same thing, social media, women's rights groups would all forget Covid19 and go wild and insane over this.

No. "Girl Power". "Women can do everything men can". Crossfit is a good example of that.
"Equality" bro.

Very much this.

Nothing more beta than a dude crying about gender discrimination.

Too bad this thread went this way #landfillalready
Unfortunately.

It's unfortunate that you guys had to react this way. I honestly didn't mean any harm by my comments or try to cause any divide here, but now I guess it's too late. I was just pointing out something that I believed was wrong. I don't know why you feel the need to jump down someone's throat every time they post something you disagree with. Ironically, the same ones calling the posters they disagree with beta losers and sensitive white males without addressing them directly are the ones who emotionally reacted to this post the most. I still don't see any valid arguments, just ad hominem attacks. That's the last thing I have to say about this thread. Please don't see me as a women hater just because I pointed out a gender double standard, I'm far from it.

Those who experience discrimination are totally cool with it because that totally makes sense.

I get where your coming from, but it's a perspective worth moving past.

The most pernicious thing about the victim complex is that it's contagious. If you watch people shriek about how they're victims long enough, eventually you mimic their psyche.

You know that you aren't actually bothered by Sara Blakely and that you probably approve of what appears to be genuinely charitable behavior.

The "girl-power" and "equality" campaigns aren't done for the benefit of women, they're done for the benefit of whoever runs those campaigns. It could be to sell things or acquire political power.

"If you want to advance a private interest, turn it into a public cause." Ed Bernays

Read about the Torches of Freedom campaign. It channeled the social frustrations of women into selling them cigarettes. All corporate and political campaigns follow this logic. It's propaganda, not principle.

Women aren't the enemy here - professional victims and opportunistic politicians and business people are.

You'd be better served seeing this stuff less as moral principles and more as natural law, like gravity. Gravity doesn't anger you - it's just something that you navigate around. Spend your energy learning what it is and how to apply it practically in your own life. You might even get something out of it.

For what it's worth, the point of this post was to offer you a mindset that will leave you better off than the one that you currently have. I may have failed in that endeavor, but that would be a matter of ability, not intent. I'm not trying to mindlessly s*** talk here.

I'm not looking to view this in terms of arguing. His viewpoint is likely quite common and it isn't without some foundation.

My goal was to offer what I consider to be a more useful perspective which actually improve his life.

This went MGTOW really quickly.

Go your own way and find something else to bitch about.
