I just received a forwarded message on one of my more overtly politically
oriented lists (;-), not that ANTHRO-L *ever* expresses a political POV...)
that may be of interest to this group. I will post below a portion of the
message including a couple of stages in a multi-stage forwarding process,
but in essence the message is alleged to have originated with four male
students at Cornell who list 75 male supremacist "articles of faith?" or
whatever one would call the interest of saving the Internet I
include only the first 10 items with this message. Contact me if you'd like
a copy of the whole sorry mess. Whether the four named individuals are
"really" responsible or not is sort of irrelevant since *somebody/sombodies*
had to make this stuff up!!!

To the college students who work with the NPC, I suggest you take a look at
this and do something about it.

Subj: read this crap, and PLEASE respond accordingly.

Hey everybody. Take a look at this. And when you pick your chin up off
the floor, write a blistering message to the assholes who wrote it. Then
forward it to anyone you think would care, and ask them to do the same.

FLOOD THEIR MAILBOXES WITH YOUR REPLIES!!! This should really make your
day. It's hard to believe that such people actually exist.

We got this from some guy that forward it to us, and fortunately, the
assholes that wrote if left there names on it, so, we found all their
e-mail addresses. Read it, and if it annoys you as much as it annoyed
us, take a second to send a message to all of the four authors. If don't
have time to read it-- just read numbers 11, 14, 20, 31, *38*, *39*,
47, 53, 61, 68, 69, 71, 74, and 75. Also, send it to any female friends
you have. We would like to annoy the fuck out of these guys. If you go
to Cornell... definitly send it to all your female friends here.

Top 75 reasons why women (bitches) should not have freedom of speech:

"Let's go back to the good old days when men were men and women were ribs"

1. She doesn't need to talk to get me a beer.
2. If she's in the kitchen like she should be, no one can hear her
3. If she can talk, all she'll do is complain.
4. Because she won't say "I will" instead of "I do."
5. No man wants to hear "first down" during a basketball game.
6. Because PMS is no excuse for whining.
7. No man needs or wants to hear the word "period" unless it has to do
with hockey.
8. Women created tampon and yeast infection commercials during football.
9. Affirmative action.
10. When men whistle at them in the street, they should just shut up and
obey anyway.
