"If men really were as misogynist as women claim, none of this would have ever happened. We would've just put them over our knee and given them a righteous paddling until we got our damn sammiches made exactly like we wanted 'em." - No Ma'am blog
"Sirens: (Greek singular: Σειρήν Seirēn; Greek plural: Σειρῆνες Seirēnes) were dangerous yet beautiful creatures, portrayed as femmes fatales who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island."
I had never seen the movie, Brother, Where Are Thou? until last week, and when I did, it made me smile.
The movie is based on Homer's epic poem, Odyssey (the first movie I saw based on it was The Warriors, which was about a street gang trying to make it home though hostile territory).
There is a scene in Brother where the three main characters run across what one correctly describes as "sirens." Two of them find the other gone, and the only thing left is an empty suit of clothes. He ends up back in prison until his friends bust him out, again.
The Manosphere knows nothing of sirens (think the movie Body Heat and James M Cain's novel, Double Indemnity). Obviously, men in the past knew a lot more about women than many men of today (read Proverbs in the Bible sometime).
Sirens? Femmes Fatales? What the hell are those? Never mind the fact that men have been writing about them for thousands of years.
The Manosphere tries to get around this problem by pretending "alphas" really exist, who they think are immune to such women. Good luck with that delusion.
