Milo Yiannopoulos, Breitbart “journalist” and full-time GamerGate panderer, has weighed in on the topic of the day amongst woman-hating dudes: sexbots, and how non-robot women are going to be so sorry when men desert them en masse for sexy, uncomplaining lady robots.
His 1800-word post on the subject covers pretty much all of the standard manosphere talking points on the coming sexbot utopia for men; he even manages to quote (approvingly, of course) our old friend Heartiste, the woman-hating white-supremacist pickup guru.
The basic argument will be familiar to anyone who read my post about MRAs and sexbots yesterday, or who’s ever heard MRAs and/or manospherians wax poetic on the subject: modern Western women, infected by feminism, have gotten so awful that men these days only put up with their bullshit for the sex; as soon as even halfway decent sexbots become affordable, these mean ladies will get the comeuppance they deserve, and end up living sad, lonely lives with no one to keep them warm except for their cats.
And yes, Milo is enough of a hack that he actually includes the bit about the cats.
“When you introduce a low-cost alternative to women that comes without all the nagging, insecurity and expense, frankly men are going to leap in headfirst,” he writes. “What’s clear is that the purchase women have over men, sexually and emotionally, is fading fast.”
As Milo sees it, men won’t even mind that their sexbots’ orgasms won’t be real. Indeed, he sees this more as a feature than a bug.
[W]ith a robot, men know the orgasm will be fake, so it removes the performance anxiety of trying to make the grade. (Men know the robot orgasm doesn’t exist — unlike the female orgasm, whose existence is still insisted upon by some conspiracy theorists and biological extremists.)
Amirite, fellas? You’re terrible at sex, and you don’t care! High five!
Apparently worrying that he isn’t pandering enough to his audience as it is, Milo even suggests that his own sexual preferences — he’s gay — are the result of the deficiencies of human women.
“I mean, look,” he writes. “I don’t mean to be rude, but most of the reason I went gay is so I didn’t have to deal with nutty broads.”
Really, Milo? Really?
But this raises a question. Milo starts off his post by suggesting that the only reason human civilization has amounted to anything is because of the hard work men force themselves to do in order to impress the, er, “broads.”
Who, or what, men have sex with is the basis of our civilisation. It is the driving force behind our greatest accomplishments. Men don’t compete for abstract pleasure: they compete to bag the best mate. The internet, the pyramids and the moon landings would not exist were it not for man’s desire to have sex with woman.
Actually, the moon landing wouldn’t have taken place without the work of Margaret Hamilton, lead software engineer of Project Apollo, but never mind that for a moment.
The question I have is: why does Milo Yiannopoulos pound out 1800-word posts for Breitbart on a regular basis? Why does he even bother to get out of bed in the morning? I mean, he’s gay. He doesn’t need to impress any of those “nutty broads” he says made him gay.
Admittedly, Milo’s work isn’t advancing civilization in any way, shape or form, but there have been plenty of accomplished gay male artists, writers, inventors, you name it. I mean, I’m pretty sure that Michelangelo didn’t paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel to impress some hot chick.
And what about lesbians? How do they even decide who gets to be the hot chick, and who gets to be the hard-working genius trying to impress the hot chick?
It’s all very confusing. Or it would be, anyway, if Milo’s bullshit were anything other than bullshit.
