For those who recall, on 1/1/2010, I launched The Misandry Bubble, declaring that the first day of the ten-year series of 201x years during which pervasive societal misandry would be the dominant cultural issue, and how this misandry was itself a bubble that would pop by 2020.
Today, July 1, 2012, is exactly one-fourth into this decade. In the 2.5 years that have elapsed, awareness of misandry has risen greatly, and the number of blogs devoted to shining a light on this has expanded by possibly an order of magnitude.
So at the point of this first-quarter intermission, I am going to post a simple poll, and embed that in the original article as well. The reason I did not include a poll on 1/1/2010 itself was that the concepts introduced in that article were too novel and explosive for average people. But since that time, awareness has risen, and the opposition has become more shrill and extreme. There are still many deniers who refuse to admit that it is even possible for laws to be rigged against men. Thus, a poll today would be more appropriate, with 75% of the decade in question still remaining.
It is true that the first 400,000 visits to the original article did not have an opportunity to vote in the poll, but the traffic to the article is still quite steady, and starting the poll from this point would still have enough voters.
So here it is (poll closed after 60 days) :
Quite simple. Let us see how the results turn out. For those of you who think there may be a sampling bias among voters, I encourage all of you to post the link of this poll on a misandry-heavy site to even out any such bias (the poll was in fact posted on DailyKos, only for the results to not be nearly as tilted in the favor of 'feminists' as they may have hoped). You will be surprised at how many people are now awake to the pervasive presence of misandry in society.
Poll Closure : It appears that Pollhost took it upon itself to twice delete this 'politically incorrect' poll (even though it is a poll, and hence an aggregate of reader opinions). Fortunately, I saved the results after 60 days, showing a landslide in favor of the view that misandry is for real. At over 6 to 1, the diverse readers of this size recognize misandry to be a real problem.
Here is yet another poll built around this topic, with similar results from a relatively diverse reader pool.
