Am I a terrible person if I got a good laugh out of some of those?  Because a few were quite funny.

You basically just waltzed in and posted a gigantic strawman apparently not privy to the fact that people will want to set fire to it...
It's not a strawman when there's no misrepresentation. There are people who actually think that feminists want to castrate all men.

It's still a strawman when the statements are used as an example rather than being brushed off as standard internet dumbness.

I'm happy I held myself back during the Steam Sale. Why, you ask?

Because some games I saw on sale are on sale for a bundle right now, and they're just my style of games too (and a majority of my wishlist major wants).

Worth the 10 bucks. It'll be a trip.

So everything on the internet is obviously invalid, no matter how widespread or harmful it is.

No, I'm saying that there are entire groups that are often mocked, MRA among them, and using them as an example of how society works is somewhat disingenuous. I'm not saying there aren't problems, just that using the biggest, most irrational example of the problem is strawmanning by definition.

And you posted that in the happy thread apropos of nothing? So it's kinda flamebaity.

Why? Am I suddenly more flammable?
Methinks that was the point, actually.

I think it's more the way it says "dudes" and "women," seeming to implicate all males and females in the opinions represented. Hence the "strawman", taking an extreme and applying it in general.

There are two ways to deal with stuff like that:
#1; Admit that there are idiots on the internet (because there's no IQ test to pass before posting), laugh at them and then ignore them while having serious discussion with people capable of it.
#2; Respond with equally stupid comments and watch how flaming intensifies faster than doped up descan till it reaches boiling point.

Please don't shitpost, it lowers the quality of discourse
Hard science is like a sword, and soft science is like fear. You can use both to equally powerful results, but even if your opponent disbelieve your stabs, they will still die.

By Tuesday? Thing's moving at a fair clip, isn't it?

Clearly fast enough for me to miss it.

I agree. The point was that it made me happy so I posted it here, and then we got into an argument as to whether or not it would start an argument, and nobody really seemed to care about the original post besides the fact that it could spawn an argument.

Well, I was asleep at the time, but it does seem rather dumb and flame-baity to me. 

Anyway, my Happy is that I somehow woke up before midday! Now, time to go buy some iced coffee and bottled water.
