“On TV, a man having a heart attack is sometimes used as a source of amusement.”

    In many forms of media, men are portrayed as sub-human, childlike and disposable. It isn’t enough that men abstain from these forms of “entertainment” since most of it is made to appeal to women. Taking on the MSM is not likely to work, there is far too much money and Feminist pride at stake…perhaps better to teach boys how to filter out the Feminism-inspired hate against their sex and to rely upon their own knowledge of who they are.

    Men have only each other in this, women will not help; it isn’t in their interests to do so.

    (Probably bad form to comment on my own quote, but I’ve already admitted to being the worst person you can imagine.)

    The closest I can think of for women in TV comedy is going into labor being used for comedic effect.

    If I were a woman, I’d be a little ticked off from the opposite direction: when do women on TV or in movies EVER have heart attacks? Even in dramas. Even in tragic stories. This major killer of women (far deadlier than breast cancer, I might add) almost totally unknown in pop culture. I remember an early episode of E.R. in which a woman comes in with chest pains, the doctors think she’s going into cardiac arrest, but, no, it turns out to be indigestion — a big belch and she’s cured! Way to go on visibility….
