Random stupid grammar shit[edit]

Just moved some commas and periods into their correct places within quotations. Stupid minor edits. — Unsigned, by: 152.208.63.217 / talk / contribs

Absolute Beginners[edit]

This is not an Incel forum. There are strict rules, and sexism, misogynie etc. are not allowed. — Unsigned, by: 84.191.5.18 / talk / contribs

Sigma Male[edit]

This is a new thing. Basically an Alpha male who's an introvert, or as I would say a MGTOW with another name. Zero (talk - contributions) 02:28, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Go ahead and add it. It's been around since 2014: [1]. Bongolian (talk) 04:30, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Chads[edit]

Should there be a reference to hanging chads/Charles II of Spain? Anna Livia (talk) 19:35, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

"Woman moment"/"Women moment"[edit]

I've encountered a phrase in the comments on this Facebook post that may belong as a new glossary entry.

As used, "woman moment" (alternatively, "women moment") appears to be used derisively to highlight a point at which a woman says or does something stupid or harmful, with the phrase serving to generalize it to all/most women. However, as this is my very first (and second through tenth) encounter with the phrase, I think additional corroboration is in order before anyone adds it to the page. --Twentydragon (talk) 21:48, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

That is how the phrase is used, but it’s not always used against women (although that is a common usage) and it isn’t exclusive to the manosphere. Not worth mentioning. Christopher (talk) 21:58, 27 April 2021 (UTC)
Is it common outside this context? I've seen "senior moment" used primarily in a self-depricating way by people in their 40s and older. I have not (thus far) seen similar usage of "woman moment". All of people using the phrase in the thread appeared to be men. --Twentydragon (talk) 02:57, 28 April 2021 (UTC)
