Grey, Rested and Ready: Some Grey Bloke returns, with a new video and some MRA non-fans

Our videomaking friend Graham, also known as Some Grey Bloke, is back, finally. In his new video, he explains his long absence, due in part to what seems to have been a rather large misunderstanding between him and the Men’s Rights Activists of the world, who somehow interpreted the newfound enthusiasm for Men’s Rights he showed in his last video as a sort of satire.  (How could anyone be drawn to mock or satirize the serious and important Men’s Rights movement?)

Anyway, here’s his new video. And below it, his previous video on “The Manosphere,” which seems to have gotten 49,208 more views than my last video on the subject. Which I’ve also embedded below. It’s not as good as his, but perhaps you could watch it also.

As they once said of Steve Jobs, “Often visionaries are little appreciated in their own time, dismissed as oddballs or madmen.”, so too will the world recognize the wisdom of our brother, Anthony Zarat. After all, wasn’t it WOMEN who said they needed men like fish needed bicycles i.e. not at all?

After all, wasn’t it WOMEN who said they needed men like fish needed bicycles

Only in the sense that it was MEN who donned pointy hoods and lynched black people. In other words, technically correct, but the wording does tend to suggest a majority view that doesn’t actually exist.

I’ll agree with the fish bicycle thing. A bike is a neccessity for some (transportation) while an accessory for others (recreation), but a fish never needs one.

@Ozymandias42: And that was the whole point (I was there when it first made the t-shirts).

Women WANTING men is entirely different (and all about CHOICE) than REQUIRING one to survive because of legal barriers to education and professions. And those of us who don’t want men, because we want women, also free to choose.

I don’t know. When I watched his second video “The Manosphere”, I laughed out loud a few times. It really seemed like he was mocking the MRM to me. I guess this is a case where Poe’s Law comes into play.

I was not a bit surprised that he was threatened with violence by the MRM, though. It’s really sad that he is laying low and afraid for his safety. I’m not familiar with British law. Would those threats made against him be illegal?

Man, I feel like a goober. I read the Youtube comments and indeed verified he was making fun of the manosphere. It’s sometimes hard to tell the difference between satire and the real MRM, because the MRM itself is so wacky.

Whatever wrote, “…so too will the world recognize the wisdom of our brother, Anthony Zarat.”

The man who finds 50% of the human race so repugnant that he’s sure the rest of the world will embrace VR? I can’t wait!

Ozymandias, you mean, this fish loves HER bicycles. I’m sure it was just a typo.

Dang, and here I thought that Whatever was being satirical… After reading another thread though, seems as if I a was wrong. Poe’s Law strikes again.

AntZ’s solution seems a little… exasperated parent-ish.

Boy: Mommy, sis hit me!
Girl: Did not, he pulled my hair!
Mom: Alright, both of you stop, play in separate rooms!

Are two arbitrary groups so inconsolable to AntZ that he can think of no other solution than to separate them? Soon he’ll have everyone sequestered into little boxes, safe from everyone and forever alone. Only then, locked in our little boxes, will we be free at last!

“The man who finds 50% of the human race so repugnant that he’s sure the rest of the world will embrace VR? I can’t wait!”

The sooner such men can embrace VR, the better for us.

Bring it on!

I don’t think I watched that AntZ video when it was up before. Now I fear I’m going to end up picturing him as a Cyberman from now on. His agenda doesn’t seem much different from theirs.

MRAL, I know you don’t believe in this whole genderqueer thing, but can you keep it to yourself? You really could have let that slide, you know. It’s one thing to roll your eyes at home and another thing entirely to go out of your way to deliberately de-gender Ozy. You don’t get to decide what gender a person is. You are not a gender cop. Repeat after me: “I am not a gender cop.”

Well, I guess he might take the little part as an attempt to be mean about his height. How about my big, happy ray of sunshine?

Ooh, MRAL is a she now? Awesome! Now she gets to know what spitting on men is like! Do you think she’ll find some mediocre dude to have sex with out of obligation to men, or will the power go to her head?

*grabs some popcorn… chicken. Meat is delicious*

*sighs, and puts away popcorn*

Ah well… It’s not like MRAL would learn anything by being subject to the wrong pronoun for the five seconds it takes him to read our comments… Unless somehow its one of his inexplicable triggers that turn him into a fanatic capslock-abusing rager.

“I’m not really comfortable inflicting things I think are ethically wrong, even when the proposed target is a jackass.”

This occurred to me after I typed it. But it was great to just *imagine* for five minutes. 😛

That’s just sarcastic mockery, I can’t imagine what the problem is there XD

But misgendering people is actually wrong, and we shouldn’t be doing it just because mral is an asshole.

It would indeed be fun to call MRAL “she,” but I agree that “he’s a dickwad” is not justification to treat him in a way you don’t want people to be treated.

Molly: I don’t think she is the best way to point this out. If one were to misgender MRAL deserves “zie/zir”, all things considered.

But we can remind him that he’s a USian.

How about we make all pronouns referring to MRAL “douche”, and variations thereof, until further notice?
