antifeminism crackpottery homophobia misogyny MRA paul elam reddit whaaaaa?

Men’s Rights Redditor on a Men’s Rights critic: “He is getting older and homosexual and … people like these tend to age like milk instead of wine.”

In yet another discussion of Arthur Goldwag’s latest post on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Hatewatch blog (looking at MRAs bad-mouthing the men who lost their lives protecting their girlfriends in the Aurora shootings), longtime Men’s Rights Redditor Liverotto offers this intriguing take on what he sees as Goldwag’s motivations for criticizing the Men’s Rights movement:

Yeah, a dude actually wrote that, and a couple of people actually upvoted it.

I’m trying to understand the logic: Goldwag is growing older and more homosexual (do men usually become gay as they age?). But gay men age badly, which makes them mad at their “suitors.” So therefore Goldwag has come to hate the (mostly straight) men of the Men’s Rights movement?

Another highlight of the discussion: The r/mensrights regular who thinks I’m Paul Elam. No, really.

I’m also not an MRA anymore, fwiw. Also, the Elam-Futrelle conspiracy theory is hilarious.

@Rutee,

I think autogynophilia is a thing, it just isn’t an explanation for trans* folks.

@ lowquacks

Our resident doll lover was here just this week, actually. He managed to get through several comments without implying that we’re all jealous of kittens, though, so that was something.

But it definitely isn’t “playing a female avatar on a video game…”

@Dracula, CassandraSays

My mistake. I try to keep up to date here, but there’s a lot of comments get posted.

I don’t think anytroll matches NWO’s persistence though. He didn’t get “Troll of the Year” for nothing.

Okay, fine, whatever. It’s been literally something like 4 months, I still visit the site like once a week or so, and I wanted to participate on a random weekend night when I have absolutely nothing to do. I don’t see the big deal, it’s been forever. And I’m not actually trolling. I don’t know how you pick me out so quickly.

Because you can’t ever seem to get a way from your obsessions, that’s why. If you don’t want the attention, don’t come here.

Now apologize to Ozy for harshing her annoyance.

I don’t think all new trolls are him, but his signature whines may as well be written in neon when he does show up.

I have no doubt that there are *some* people who are turned on by the idea of being another gender, because there are some people that are turned on by any fucking thing, but given the sordid history of “autogynephilia” we might want to choose a new word for it. Also, I’m pretty sure it has nothing to do with your tastes in fiction or video game champions.

Kirby: While I prefer my demonic flesh to remain, how shall I put it, unseared by flaming swords, I will be cheering you on. From a very, very, very, very safe distance away.

…do we know if flaming swords can shoot fire.

There’s probably not anything David can do. I get ads for the course I’m taking at the university I attend here every now and then, which is kinda creepy.

@Sharculese:

Is mikey also varpoole/steele? If so, I would to. I’ve never seen so many flounces of “This is a vile place, and you are all vile people. Goodbye!” followed five minutes later by another couple posts.

The validation you seek will not be found here. Learn what “no” means, and depart.

@Ozy:

That’s probably much closer to what I meant. Sometimes I actually consider myself part of that group, which is why I’m pretty sure it exists. It’s only one part of things that excite me in any case… I haven’t exactly had the freedom to explore these sorts of things.

Don’t worry about flame-shooting swords though. I just need to get within inhalation range and BOOM! Fire kirby. ^_^

Gotta make sure to get rid of the power before swimming, though… that’d be real unfortunate. 🙁

Yes, we all remember what happened to the *last* pool we had down in Hell…

I’m obsessing over my cat’s extremely cute pink nose. She did not really cooperate with my attempt to take a picture; I’ll have to try sneaking up on her when she’s sleeping.

The cuddly dog sounds cute too.

@Ozy:

I said I was sorry! Geeze, hell is not very forgiving, is it?

ozymandias42

Oh, yes, Hell is noted for its forgiveness and mercy. That is definitely the trait we think of when we think of damnation. 😛

OTOH, we have cookies to go with the tea!
