I am just writing this to tell you why I am quitting Funnyjunk. It's not the reposts, Tumblr posts or 4chan screenshots, it's the new fad on here of misogyny and pretty disgusting discrimination. What started out seemingly innocently as anti-extremist posts has seemed to be twisted and taken over by angry young boys, furiously venting their unfounded fear and mistrust of women. I don't feel that I'm overreacting as just this morning I saw a post that implied women could only achieve their goals by being held up by men. We all realise that this kind of rhetoric would rightly go chastised if it were uttered in public, but it seems that because it's being said in a special little club for adolescent boys it's all right. There are many other things on this website that have annoyed me over the years such as the racism and the neo-conservatism/liberalism but the rampant misogyny has been the straw that broke the camel's back.
I am sure there will be many of you who will respond to this message with words like "Good riddance feminazi" and "Won't miss you faggot", but these responses will only go further to prove me point.
I am male and I am white, but that doesn't mean I can't be disgusted by the behaviour on this site.
One who is disappointed.
