Men's Rights Activists Pissed About New 'Mad Max' Movie Because of Course They Are


For weeks now, there has been a deafening silence from the men’s rights community on the film Mad Max: Fury Road which absolutely no one has cared about. Now, Aaron Clarey, who writes for the MRA site Return of Kings (which, for the record, describes itself as “a blog for heterosexual, masculine men” and suggests that “[w]omen and homosexuals are discouraged from commenting here”), is finally weighing in. And the verdict is that Fury Road should be avoided at all costs. Because there are chicks in it and dudes who see it might grow ovaries, or some crap like that.

In the post – which I highly recommend you read in its entirety, because laughter is such a rare commodity in this world – Clarey describes watching the trailer for the film and being very excited about its release. Until he started noticing a few things. Like the fact that Charlize Theron “kept showing up.” And also the fact that she “talked a lot,” including “bark[ing] orders to Mad Max. Nobody barks orders to Mad Max.”

If you thought Clarey might’ve stopped there, because he sounds fucking ridiculous, you’d of course be wrong. He also calls the film a “feminist piece of propaganda,” and says the movie (which he admittedly hasn’t seen) “blur[s] the lines between masculinity and femininity, further ruining women for men, and men for women.” And then he asks everyone to join a boycott:

“[D]o yourself and all men across the world a favor. Not only REFUSE to see the movie, but spread the word to as many men as possible. Not all of them have the keen eye we do here at ROK. And most will be taken in by fire tornadoes and explosions. Because if they sheepishly attend and Fury Road is a blockbuster, then you, me, and all the other men (and real women) in the world will never be able to see a real action movie ever again that doesn’t contain some damn political lecture or moray about feminism, SJW-ing, and socialism.”

In other words, get your tickets ASAP. And just in case you haven’t seen it but want to judge for yourself, the Mad Max redux trailer is below. MRAs should be careful to watch with loins girded and a wahmbulance on speed dial.
