site down, next step, demand an apology
amanda2715

Well, at least the link is down. The original publish date on this was 6am EST 8/22.

That took too long.

Call Forbes, demand an apology. Call your local newspapers, tell them you are demanding an apology.

A server not found message is not enough.

Forbes was publishing results of some serious research work.

Might be some people do not like to read the results. And?

There is no reason for an apology to some radical feminists…

Apologise for what?

Forbes published an article of opinion expressed by a writer. Why should Forbes apologise for publishing free speech? Why, because YOU don’t like it?

Grow up Amanda. This is the Twenty-first Century – we’re not still stuck in the feminist dinosaur days anymore. The man has a right to express an opinion. You don’t have a right to any apology from the writer, Forbes or anyone else about the matter.

Don’t like it? Go live in China.

And BTW, the “site” is not down, the page was removed. You did not get a “server” not found message – you got a “page” not found message, a 404 Error. Had the server been down, you wouldn’t have received any message at all.

But then, what would you expect from people still living with their heads back in the last century?

It really amazes me how some women here ‘demand’ an apology like it was their (god given) natural right that, even when a study is shown to have scientific merit, it shouldn’t even be shown because it (god forbid) would criticise some women. And we just can’t have that, now, can we? Oh, but when men are attacked in the most vicious ways possible from the media and society, then it is perfectly allowed by these same people who personally insult the author of this article. Honestly, who do these women think they are???

This is why it is still politically correct to say that men are the evilest people on this planet and women are sugar, spice and everything nice. Because anyone who writes anything that differs from the general norm will be ruthlessly censored.

And how many women here consider themselves ‘Liberal’? I know I do and I thought (from my recollection from interning with them) that censorship is not part of their agenda?

When has censorship been actively part of anyone’s agenda since the Alien and Sedition Acts?

Yeah…and I thought we live in a democratic society???

If many of them actually saw sexism and how it affected men, then I wouldn’t mind what these women were saying. And if this article just attacked women because they were ‘women’, then I would see a problem with this as well.

I find it sickening and deeply disturbing how there are still doublestandards against men that are at work in this country and how no one says anything about it. But, that is understandable, when there are women (and some men) out there who believe in censorship and will do anything to preserve their politically correct sentiment.

I would also be hesitant to speak out if I got a death threat where a person would threaten to harm my children.

Yeah. These are the same people who claim they know ‘the truth’, but yet have to resort to these tactics.

Well, now it is now high time that people DO speak out against it.

We shouldn’t be silent anymore.

Sheesh. Since when were men so thin-skinned? Last time I checked, it’s perfectly within any reader’s rights to demand apologies and voice their disapproval. If you think that’s censorship, well . . . you’re just retarded.

Demanding apologies and threatening cancellations because you’re offended of an op/ed article is being thin-skinned.
