    Deny, Attack, Reverse Victim and Offender.  The psych who named this behavior used it for sexual abusers, but it seems to apply to a number of authoritarian types.  You've seen them in comment threads in general media areas (HuffPo, Yahoo, etc), insisting that it's racist to notice racism, it's heterophobic to make them have to watch gays get married, or that it's sexist to call attention to women's lower salaries or poor treatment.

    There has to be something really ugly triggering this behavior, because the MRAs are aggressive, nasty, bullying, ugly and irrational. There is no reasoning with the, and they have zero compassion for anyone other than themselves. These are the guys who literally would throw a baby out with the bathwater if they could get revenge on an ex. And yes, they make up completely bullshit statistics and quote each other on them.

    You can see them in action on this thread from John Scalzi where he shows what the whole Republican Rape Party was really about.  Although Scalzi did clobber the uglier examples.  But really, serious trigger warning on this link.
