I read some real woman-hating shit every goddamn day, but this just about takes the cake.

Talk about can't win. Can't win if you're fat. Can't win if you're too thin. Can't win if you're ugly. Can't win if you're merely cute. Can't win if you're beautiful and have the temerity to age. Can't win if you try to stay looking young artificially. Can't win if you age naturally. Can't win if you're a woman of any description, really. Can't win. Can't. Fucking. Win.

And don't even exist if you're not a (predominantly) straight, white, cis, able-bodied, thin, typically-statured woman.

Btw, I'd like to point out to the Shaker men that describes itself as "the premier online destination for Men!" and note, once again, that it is not feminists who are the real man-haters in this world. Any outfit that serves up the sort of jaw-droppingly misogynist content under the pretense of being representative of how the average guy views women hates men, and is profoundly contemptuous of any notion of a spectrum of manhood, in ways I can't even begin to contemplate.

[H/T to Shaker Tracee.]
