Subjects were told they would be debating personal philosophy with a fellow student, and were asked to write essays detailing their personal beliefs and aspirations. The essays were turned over to an anonymous attorney, who in a later session would confront and belittle the subject – making "vehement, sweeping, and personally abusive" attacks. The experiment lasted three years, with someone verbally abusing and humiliating Kaczynski each week

Anyway, things are the opposite of what you say. B3TA literally calls itself a peurile digital arts community on the tin, I post a funny link about a girl getting chewbacca sounds on her phone and have to deal with this little cadre of unfunny complaining clowns going on about toxic masculinity, or doing nothing but sniping pathetically like yourself. just what the fuck you're doing here is your own business, but Ill damn well have some fun with you if you pipe up in my posts.

This is a normal post again with inserting your pointless opinion into other peoples arguments
it's not a common phrase, it's a "carry on" era twee catchphrase hardly spoken except by old shut-ins, and when it is, it's aimed at women, like the rhetorical "what is she like?". Employed at a man it's a construction that functions because of misogynistic ideas about women that prufrock still entertains from about the same era. And because my comment was about star wars, it was ambiguous whether it was directed at me or star wars, as it employs the third person. My error was to assume that prufock wasn't an old woman-hating misogynist and therefore it must be directed at star wars who was therefore a woman. Looking up star wars spiteful qotw contributions, I quickly realised it was a false assumption

This is a normal post just in case you need breaking it down, it's not harasment
I've happened to have created training around harassment and inappropriate workplace behaviour for nurses, so unlike you I happen to know what the fuck I'm talking about, and harassment is a specific term that in order to qualify needs to be repeated. so if he was repeatedly doing pranks on her that would be harassment, not some one off. In the workplace, if some guy ask a girl out, that might be inappropriate under the circumstances, but it's not harassment. If he kept asking her even after she told him to fuck off then it well could be.
Toxic masculinity was originally a term used by feminists to denote a kind of macho male bonding culture, like rugby clubs or gangs or groups of stockbrokers, and it's tendency toward misogyny, but it's since been appropriated by empty virtue signallers such as yourself to describe pretty much any male behaviour they disapprove of, and hence has become somewhat meaningless except as some general epithet employed in the hope of appearing 'woke' to their pc baby peers who are just as petrified as themselves of saying anything outside their narrow orthodoxy and being ostracised for it

If he made her car horn play the dukes of hazard theme, it's not harassment either even though she has to put up with it until she can go to the mechanic.

I'd hate to sit through watching trigger happy tv, beadles about, jackass,etc with any of you humourless pc wowsers while you list the various unforgivable transgressions and human rights abuses you imagine are taking place.

This is a normal post my various rants seem to garner quite a few likes, oddly enough
though it's unclear if that's due to any eloquence on my part or just that they're fans of confrontation. I do them mostly for my own amusement, and try to direct them at people who manage to be both condescending and wrong, such as yourself on several occasions, and people who begin sentences with "Just in case you need it breaking(sic) down". Or people like brb who likes to insert himself in every discussion and whose appraisal of his own opinion far exceeds its worth. Though to be fair, Prufrock, our exchanges have mostly been about grammatical pedantry, rather than dealing with the kind of histrionic internet sanctimony that seems endemic these days.

Section 474.17 of the Criminal Code Act 1995 (Commonwealth) criminalises the use of a phone or the internet to threaten, harass or seriously offend somebody.

The Offence of Use Carriage Service To Menace, Harass, Offend
The offence of use carriage service to menace, harass or offend is contained in section 474.17 of the Criminal Code contained in schedule one of the Crimes Act 1914 (Cth) and states that a person commits an offence if:
• the person uses a carriage service; and
• the person does so in a way (whether by the method of use or the content of a communication, or both) that reasonable persons would regard as being, in all the circumstances, menacing, harassing or offensive.

What Actions Might Constitute Using A Carriage Service to Menace, Harass Or Cause Offence?
Examples of using a carriage service to menace, harass or offend include:
• calling random phone numbers and yelling insults or threats at the person who picks up;
• posting a Facebook status calling someone ugly and stupid;
• sending dozens of text messages each day to a woman who doesn’t want to go on a second date with you; and
• posting a photograph of your ex-girlfriend on Reddit with the caption “roast me” and posting the link to her social media accounts.

it lists some examples of what might be "Menace, Harass Or Cause Offence" which is a rather large bucket, but neither distinguishes which of the examples relate to which ("or" being the operative word), or defines the meaning, so for our argument is not a particularly helpful addition despite your googling

The queensland police didn't charge or caution the man in that pesky thing called reality despite it being on the news, though they did help in taking down the posters which was nice, showing that they have more of a sense of proportion and grasp of the legal aspects than most of the amateur lawyers here. Did I mention I also taught the MET police in London, including powers of arrest?

My t-shirt says "I'm sorry, your opinion means very little to me".

Meaning of course that if all you have is an opinion, that is almost worthless. If you have a position that can be formulated into a cogent argument, that can be respected far more. More importantly, that argument facilitates a legitimate conversation from which there could be some sort of resolution.

If it matters, I very much support BLM. But I also have views on a wide variety of topics that are based on the merits of those topics individually. I do not engage in groupthink, because that is the antithesis of thinking.

This is a normal post Toxic masculinity
Is a subset of toxicity.

Subsets of things are great:
Maybe 'toxic masculinity' has certain features that it doesn't share with toxic waste, or masculinity in general, and when discussing those particular features, the distinction is useful in helping people understand you.

It doesn't mean that 'only the masculine is toxic'.
Nor does it mean that 'all that is masculine is toxic'.

The term "Flying fish" doesn't mean all fish can fly, and it doesn't imply that helicopters don't fly.
But it's quite useful if you want to talk about flying fish.

... does not reduce the woman to being “helpless”; she could react with anything from an eye roll to a panic attack and the unreasonableness of the prank would still exist.

Here’s the crucial bit for the idiots; when your partner dumps you, prank time is over, and any person who isn’t a fully paid up moron can see that inviting unwanted attention onto your ex is creepy abusive shit, and that doing so in a way that’s funny to other creep shits and idiots doesn’t make it more lighthearted, it just means that the creepy abusive dick is still convincing himself he’s a funny guy.

Always funny to see the knots people will twist themselves in to avoid saying anything as mundane as “that’s not on”
