Why is violence against men still considered funny/acceptable to some degree?

I am thinking of shows like "Wednesday", and other castration sequences in TV and movies.

If some character cut off a woman's breast it would be considered a heinous felony. No a ha ha moment. Even misgendering someone via pronouns is "literal violence". But it's still okay to commit violent acts against men?

Mama has some support for you, OP.

You're the reason the word wuss was invented, OP.

Because it’s revenge against the patriarchy. Men rule the world, they dominate women, they’re physically stronger, etc., so when it comes to fiction, it’s time to teach them a lesson.

It is the white patriarchal penis people's fault. All they bring is destruction--always bad, never good.

This country is in this mess because of old white men. Over 400 years

Got a list of all these funny ha-ha comedies that use castration as a hilarious joke?

Why R7, are you going to have a Girls Night In and binge watch the shows I list?

I just think you're lying to get attention, r8.

Porkys, World According to Garp, I've seen episodes of SVU where it's played for laughs.

by Anonymousreply 10May 24, 2023 1:49 AM

Why would the usually male writer do that, OP? To get a cheap laugh? For $$?

You asked why it's "still" considered funny. These examples are 50 years old.

Troll OP should have lost everyone at:

Depends on the man in question.

OP, remember that DL is trolled by a lot of lesbians and sexually frustrated white women over the age of 50. So of course they’re going to take issue with you. The truth is that we’re in a matriarchal society. The myth of male power is just that, a myth. And women often find the abuse and torture of men as either humorous or justified. Most of them are vile.

I don't know, OP. That's a tough one. Maybe you should go upstairs and ask your mom's opinion.

OP, you sound like an incel with a manifesto proclaiming how men are oppressed by woke culture.

Who made a joke about anal rape?? Troll.

by Anonymousreply 29May 25, 2023 1:57 AM

Troll R17 attacked lesbians and white women, braindead R26 gave him a sloppy knob job in gratitude, R27 mocked the braindead R26, and somehow R28 got to " jokes about people being anally raped in prison."

Great thread. A real intellectual summit.
