The fedora has come to represent a certain breed of sexists who think they're special snowflakes because of their hat. (It's a bit unfortunate because they're cool hats. But now they're associated with douchebag Nice GuysTM)

I do honestly wonder what does men rights mean. Is there a list somewhere? What rights are men not given or are they supposedly loosing? And why a fedora? Why would these men who talk about their “rights” wear them? The internet is a weird place indeed…
