The Angriest Spearheader? The Wit and Wisdom of Darryl X

It’s back to the caves for you, ladies!

There are a lot of hair-raisingly reactionary dudes on The Spearhead, but perhaps none quite so hair-raising as the prolific commenter who calls himself Darryl X. Here are some of his pearls of wisdom, taken from a recent Spearhead thread. (Many of his comments in the thread were devoted to a sort of mini-vendetta against another Spearhead commenter, Andie, who had committed the crime of commenting while female; I’ve cut out most of that to focus on Darryl’s more timeless thoughts.) Fair warning: This is extreme stuff, even by Spearhead standards.

Back to the Caves, Women!

Since the solution for the past forty-four years was to kill and impoverish and exile and imprison men and steal their kids, I’d say sending women to live in a cave is a generous trade.

This Means War

All women are feminists because all women (without a single exception) have benefited excessively from the legal, political, social and financial machine that feminists have created. And those benefits have all come at the expense of the lives and livelihoods of tens of millions of men and children (in the US alone). When all my financial resources and children which women stole have been returned to me and all women are living on the street to pay for it only then will there be fairness.

Feminism is a hate movement. It is a campaign of hate against men and children. And all women are evil until feminism has been destroyed and every women pays back repairations with interest. …

This is a war. And it will end only one way. The complete utter destruction of feminism and the women who participated in it and/or who sat by passively at let it happen. I have absolutely no sympathy and will demonstrate no mercy for any woman until I and other men have been compensated and women and feminists have been punished for their egregious crimes against humanity (preferably with death sentences). This is a war that women started and it will not end until every one of them has paid. …

Why Andie Must Pay for the Crimes of All Women

She’s a woman. She benefited from feminism more than any man. Even if she represents 20% of women who are not psychopaths, she must be compelled to take an active part in the destruction of feminists and feminism. … She must pay for her complicity … The consequences of her failure to stop feminism must be greater than the retaliation by feminists. Otherwise, there will be no incentive for women to help men. This is a war. If you aren’t fighting feminism and feminists, then you are helping them. Stopping feminism is fundamental to maintaining civilization.

Have You Herd the News?

Women are herd animals. … Women are much easier to control and manipulate than boys … Boys have to be drugged. Girls come pre-drugged.

You Choose, You Lose

Women have choices. If they want rights and privileages, then they must have responsibilities. Presently, women vote. But they are not held accountable for the consequences of their choices when they vote. Most men have no choices. If they want to live. Women are not women today. They are whores. Big difference.

The Perfect Host

Women and feminists are opportunists. They are … looking for someone else at whom to point fingers of blame and cast aspersions and pick up the tab as they now understand that responsible men have nothing left to steal. They’re just looking for the next host on which to parasitize.

We’re Still Hunting the Mammoth to Feed You

[M]ost of the taxes that men are currently paying fund the excessive lifestyles of women … [M]en do all the work and women do little or nothing.

Everyone Needs a Hobby

I have been actively fighting feminism for more than thirty years. I have racked up quite a list of those who have made the mistake of getting in my cross-hairs. … Many a feminist federal employee and university professor have watched their careers and their lives come apart after picking a fight with me. … I don’t have television or cable or internet and cell phone or land line or refrigerator or microwave. Hunting feminists is my hobby.

Unhappy hunting!

Oh, hey! NWO! Honestly glad to see you here. I asked you a question on another thread earlier, but you probably haven’t gone back. It was kinda fizzling out at the time. Anyway, the question is this: what is your story? I remember one thread when you talked about your sister and your niece, and some actual humanity shone through. So what happened? What happened to you to change you from a loving brother to hating everything with a second X chromosome? Most MRA’s and MGTOW’s are more than happy to share how every woman done them wrong. How about you?

I never understood why Brad Pitt was considered so hot in the first place. I think he’s kinda weird-looking, myself.

Hi brother has been the face of Vodafone(?) ads in Australia – I get the NW magazine for the articles, and the ads are in there. I think the brother looks nicer, he smiles a lot in the ads and his face looks like smiling is his natural state.

Yeah, Brad Pitt’s not my type, either. For starters I prefer darker colouring, and for another, I keep thinking of him in that horriblehorriblehorrible wig in Interview with a Vampire – puke!

Now there’s something – if being turned into a vampire meant Instant Curls for Claudia, why didn’t it work for Louis? MISANDRY!

The whole “Oh evil women get married to men and then take them for all their worth” is something that I’m getting fucking tired of. As though abusive assholes are ONLY women? I know men who have married women with good paying jobs and then fleeced them for all they are worth. Hell, I know men who didn’t even MARRY a woman but instead mooched off of her, lived in her house, etc and basically drove her into debt and misery while also being an abusive fuckwad.

In my mother in law’s situation, her husband was ugly, short, balding and fat. He would probably fit right in with the MRA whining of “Oh, but I’m a NICE GUY and she should LOOK PAST MY FLAWS” because that’s the kind of shithat he is. So yeah. He’s no Brad Pitt, brought no money to the relationship, and basically pissed away every penny of her 150,000 + dollar a year job.

So.

This is not a gendered thing.

This is an ABUSIVE ASSHOLE THING.

Look, I understand that it’s not entirely your fault if you were naive and fell for a con artist who married you and took you for all you were worth. But the very wrong thing to do after experiencing such a thing is to then extrapolate this bad behavior on the part of one person and then say, “hey, ALL women must be like this! And the solution isn’t for me to do a good job figuring out if this person is an ABUSIVE ASSHOLE before LEGALLY TYING MYSELF TO THEM (and BTW, marriage is not mandatory), it’s to TAKE AWAY THE RIGHTS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT ME SO THAT THERE IS NO WAY THAT I WILL BE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF!”

You know what? Fuck that shit. If you don’t like no-fault divorce, DO NOT GET MARRIED. Get a pre-nup if you ABSOLUTELY WANT TO LEGALLY MARRY. And read the fucking paperwork on your marriage certificate and all the rules it entails before you fucking sign it. IT IS NOT THAT HARD.

And, for the love of all that walks this Earth, PLEASE marry someone you actually trust and care about, who reciprocates that love and trust.

It is not up to the universe to give you special favors just because you think you are entitled to them.

Pitt doesn’t do it for me either. He’s objectively very handsome, just not really my type. Also, how do I say this delicately? For women my age he’s not a bad person to pick if you’re going for hottest man in the world OMG, but I kind of question whether the average 21 year old would see him that way. Same when they occasionally bang on about Clooney – yes, he is very handsome, but he is also no spring chicken and thus an odd choice for their purposes. Unless the purpose is to shore up their belief that age is absolutely not a problem for men, nope, they remain as hot as they were at 25 until the day they die and how dare anyone suggest otherwise.

Does anyone else find it absolutely hilarious when “bad boys” are referenced by men who say that women should be reduced to animals in the eyes of the law that men can do whatever they want with?

I mean, what do they think that shit right there *IS*? Sounds fucking bad to me. 🙁

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

That’s a good point about the age, Cassandra. I must ask around at the hairdresser’s next time I’m there (totally scientific straw poll) whether the younger women there think either Pitt or Clooney is appealing. I like Mr Clooney, but in an aesthetic-plus-like-what-I-know-of-his-acting-and-politics way, not a pantsfeelings way. Ah, the early days of ER – George Clooney and Noah Wyle! 🙂

Is it sad that my earliest crush (very young) was Tom Baker as Dr Who? I have finally got the damn scarf pattern off a Ravelry link and have ordered the Vanna’s Choice acrylic. I’ve ordered double the amount I need as my partner wants one too – and I would hate to be accused of misandry re my scarf knitting attempts.

I must never meet your husband as I had a crush on Inigo, and The Princess Bride is one of my favourite movies…. and wasn’t he also in St Elsewhere as a lovely natured doctor?

I don’t really feel sexually attracted to any movie stars, really. The idea of fucking someone famous just feels really really awkward. I tend not to be attracted to body parts, anyway- it’s combinations of things- mannerisms- the way that people use and move their bodies are much more important than some guy standing there without his shirt on and the 6 pack abs and hair blowing in the wind.

I think that the main problem here is that these guy who basically objectify women are trying to see how women generally (as the HIVEMIND) tend to look at men and just do this weird Bizarro World reflection of their own weird objectification. The thing is, there are women who objectify men (obviously), but there is a huge variety in how people gauge attractiveness in others, and even if we completely ignore the asexual and the homosexual folks, most heterosexual women who are attracted to the same person will be attracted for different reasons.

*shrug* I don’t think I’m all that weird being primarily attracted to my spouse to the point that I really see no point in pursuing others, even if that were to be an option.

Yeah, I’ve known a lot of long haired, tattooed, motorcycle riding, recreational drug taking “bad boys” in my life, and there’s not a single one of them (even the big scary-looking Hell’s Angels guy who sold speed at clubs and hung out with Motorhead) who I wouldn’t feel safer around than I would around any MRA who I can think of.

Checking the definition here: so if I think “gosh he looks nice”, I consider that attraction. No thoughts or imaginings about sex need to occur. Have I got the definition of attraction wrong?

CassandraSays

I think there’s a difference between “he is attractive” and “I am attracted to him”. Or at least there is for me. There are a lot of people who’re objectively attractive who I’m not attracted to because they’re just not my type.

“I am attracted to him” implies that if there were no possible complicating factors or reasons not to (and there can be lots of those), I’d probably want to have sex with him. “He’s attractive” does not imply that at all, it’s just a recognition that the person fits current societal beauty ideals.

I agree with the attracted TO vs attractive definitions. I see attractive people all the time. But there are certain people who I just go WOW- MAGNETISM! I’ve had this happen with all sorts of people, mostly people who others find unremarkable and don’t see what I see. I have a really wide variety of people who seriously WOW-MAGNETISM me.

With my husband, the “limerance” phase of our relationship seriously lasted about 2-3 years. I seriously felt like I was magnetically attracted to him- I wanted to be always touching him in some way, I was so physically drawn to him that I could barely contain myself. And he felt the same way. It was very intense.

To me, that’s what attraction to a person feels like.

BWAHAHAHA I’d be saying “get in the queue” because some of my girlfriends sigh over him too. He’s kinda baffled by it, lol.

I just Googled Mandy Patinkin; he was in Chicago Hope, not St Elsewhere, apparently. I never saw either, I was into ER. How cool is this, too: he’s a tenor and noted interpreter of Stephen Sondheim’s works.

Nothin’ sad about having a crush on Tom Baker’s Doctor! And that’s gorgeous about knitting the scarf. I’ve just taken up knitting over the last coupla months. I’m trying to do a jumper for Mr Kitteh … it’ll get done but NOT in time for his birthday, dammit! (Which has nothing to do with sitting here posting comments on Manboobz instead of knitting, nooo…)

LOL just came back from doing a couple of rows of crochet for my partner’s mum, it’s her Xmas pressie. It’s the first time I’m carrying colour in crochet. I’m still learning this, so my tension is a bit tight. The pattern is here: http://wittylittleknitter.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Vannas-Choice-Season-14.png all in garter stitch. Because I can’t have wool touch my skin, I’m using acrylic hence the choice of yarn. Hoping for 10 feet of scarf. The website also has a pattern for tardis socks. 🙂

Chicago Hope was a great show. I went through a phase of watching hospital-based stuff while I worked in one, although my favourite was a British comedy called Surgical Spirit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surgical_Spirit_(TV_series) and I’ve been enjoying Nurse Jackie.

Maybe the MRAs should take up a constructive hobby. 🙂

Darn, I meant the pattern for the Dr Who scarf, not the pattern for the afghan. The afghan will look like this, but I need to do more repeats because of my tension: http://www.herrschners.com/product.aspx?sku=201348&sk=afghan+

@Magpie it comes as a kit with the colours already chosen, so it’s a little more to the green end of teal than I think shows on my computer monitor. Blue is her favourite colour, I figure teal is close enough. Plus she loves anything hand made, so even if the colour is slightly off she’ll still really appreciate the present. I just can’t believe how cheap these kits are compared to the equivalent cost of me buying similar in New Zealand.

The teal looks nice in the picture. That is very cheap for a kit! Is it pure wool, or does working with wool make you itch? 2ply is really fine, it would make a soft fabric even with tight tension.

I’m knitting a V neck cardie – I’m up to the annoying bit where you decrease neck and armhole at the same time but different rates.

Wool is fine for me to work with, I have issues with it touching my bare skin on my neck or elbows due to allergies. The afghan yarn is acrylic, and it’s quite a nice one to work with. The American yarn terms are quite different to how we’d call them in NZ or Aus, so the yarn is equivalent to double-knit in our language. They’re really into doing the numbers for the yarn type, or use terms such as “worsted” which is the same as our 10-ply and I think is a 4 in weight /sigh. With crochet, I also have to worry about whether the pattern is North American or not, as the stitches are called something different in English-based patterns, e.g. I think English treble crochet is the same as American double crochet.

I feel your pain with the difference in row counts. I write down all the row changes for each different bit on paper. I grabbed an equivalent free version for Android but I can’t be bothered having to turn my phone back and lose battery life, so it will continue to be the paper-based method for me. I also thought that using PDF patterns on a tablet would be useful, but found that it kills the tablet battery really quickly, so still printing off paper copies of patterns. 🙁

Will you post a photo of the finished cardie? Are you on Ravelry?
