I have. I posted a couple of times, and will do so for a while.

I've been commenting over at Futrelle's blog for months now, BQ, and I have to say that your presence there is a welcome addition.  We need reasonable and articulate voices to counter the assertions that the author makes routinely.  The purpose of David Futrelle's blog is to unfairly portray the various misogynistic statements that he finds around the Web (as well as statements that are conflated by David into examples misogyny) as somehow representing the men's rights movement as a whole, and to discredit its aims.  That's what is really in play here:  legitimacy.  If our movement is not socially perceived as legitimate, then we face a tougher time gaining leverage in the legislatures and at the ballot box.

I invite everyone here to monitor David's blog and to actively comment there.  The most effective way (I have found) is to use RSS, which lets you track comments that you have posted and their replies.  Send me a PM if you want to know more.

I put this thread up in hopes that a number of us would engage in countering this scumbag's smug/smarmy propaganda. I wonder if there is in actual fact a male behind this tripe, or if it's more mental masturbation on the part of some threatened feminists.

He's male alright.  I've seen his picture that was associated with his previous online writing.  Also, I've talked to him over the phone.  He's a real guy.  Unfortunately, I believe that deep down, David Futrelle thinks that the people who advocate on behalf of men are somehow by definition apologists for misogyny.  His blog exists in order to perpetuate the legitimacy of the status quo (he told me that his intent is merely to study misogyny as a phenomenon, but I highly doubt that). In my opinion, his blog has a political purpose.  He wants his writing to thwart the political momentum of the men's and father's rights movements.

He really thinks that crappy blog will have that much influence on the MRM?

I think that David Futrelle thinks that his blog will be influential in *discrediting* the MRM, yes.
