Sick of Sexism, The Thrill Pioneers With Soon-to-be-Launched HisCampus

This is how we do it.

Kenyon College will no longer stand for the biased reporting in its publications. In the name of equality, members of The Thrill’s staff have decided to take it upon ourselves to even the playing field, to stand up for what’s right, and to take Title IX to its logical conclusion. That’s right: we’re launching HisCampusHisCampus won’t deal with silly girly things like make-up, Lisa Frank unicorn school supplies, period products, and the slow feminist process of removing every penis from its carrier and displaying them in the Gund Gallery Senior Art Show, but will talk about real issues, like meninism, cologne, and lightbulb brands that enhance shadows, which under the right circumstances will make your penis look bigger. We hope that you’ll join us on this important endeavor.

  1. Yet again, the thrill fails at humor. This post shows how ignorant the thrill and its snarky writers really are, extremely narrow minded

    • Yes Thrill, open your minds to men’s rights! It’s the most open-minded of cults I mean civil rights movements!

      • You seem to painting all mens rights people with a broad stroke. Sound familiar? I think men’s rights is stupid, but surely not all men’s rights people are “cultists.” At least a few of those guys are probably decent people who don’t believe in disempowering women or shit like that.

        You’re probably a feminist, but you give feminism a bad name. You are too busy bemoaning “oppressive generalizations” to realize that you make the same sort of generalizations yourself. Fucking hypocrite.

        And on that note, I am glad Im leaving this den of hypocrisy and misguided pluralism in four weeks. Most of you need to reevaluate your political beliefs. It doesn’t seem like you have taken enough time to think them through.

        And you, “Another man,” care too much about public opinion. Men’s rights activists are easy targets because they are insecure and pathetic. You win brownie points with our mostly feminist student body, but that’s only because they have as little of an idea of what being a feminist actually means as you do. Maybe you (the guy above me and everyone else) should be a little more sympathetic to those types. I’m friends with a men’s rights guy here (yes, they exist here at Kenyon) and, you know what? I feel sorry for him. He needs some way to channel all of his sexual frustration. Men’s rights happens to be a cause that makes sense for him (he is a man, after all) and his beliefs are pretty moderate. Contrary to what you may think, he doesn’t think that women are inferior.

        So instead of blindly shooting down and bullying anyone else that doesn’t share all of your beliefs, maybe take the time to get to know that person. You’ll probably learn that they are not so villainous or patriarchal as you originally thought. Like many students here, you seem predisposed to making assumptions and spreading hate when you identify anything as an “other.” Tolerance and compassion are qualities you should emphasize above all. Isn’t that what feminism is all about? (This is a rhetorical question. Yes, of course, that is what feminism is about!)

        The problem is that some of you guys don’t actually care about feminism or pluralism (or whatever), you just want to impress your peers by appearing au courant. I can see right through your bullshit, Kenyon. Ideologies shouldn’t be like a set of clothes that we change depending on the sensibilities of the people around us. No, our ideologies are reflections of who we are and what we want the world to be like. If your beliefs are empty– like the guy above me– you are empty.

  2. Aside from the snark, etc, I’d be interested in seeing people of all genders write on the same topic so everyone could see how different genders look at it.

    Obviously for something like gender neutral bathrooms in halls, women will have different views than men who will have different views from genderfluid people and transgender people.

    Really, though, more voices, not less, is always a better thing, no matter whose voice it is.
