I’ll be on Australian radio tonight at 8 PM Eastern, talking about the legacy of Gamergate

So I’m going to appear on the Australian radio show Stop Everything on ABC RN tonight from 8-9 PM Eastern, talking about Gamergate and its legacy. (For those actually living down under, that converts to 10-11 AM Friday morning, Eastern Australian time.) The segment on Gamergate will take up roughly half of the hour-long show, but I’m not sure when in the hour that will be.

You can find the show here; it will be rerun several times and also put up as a podcast.

I’m still here, just taking a break

Hey, everyone. I’m still here. I’m just taking a break. Sometimes I need to step back and clear my head of the usual manosphere nonsense for a few days. But I’ll be back soon.

Emergency Fundraising Appeal UPDATE, in the form of a huge and heartfelt THANK YOU

Dear readers,

I honestly don’t know what to say! I’m awed and humbled by your amazing response to the emergency fundraising appeal I put up yesterday. You’ve pulled me back from the financial brink and provided me with the resources I need to get through the next several months while I work to put the blog (and myself) on a more solid financial footing for the long term.

Huge thanks! Pledge drive wrapup

Celebration time at WHTM Headquarters

By David Futrelle

And so ends this somewhat extended pledge drive.

I’d like to offer a big “thanks” to everyone who’s donated. When I checked in with you all a few days ago, donations were coming in slowly and it looked like they would fall far short of what I need to keep this blog going. But thanks to a wave of donations since then we’ve gotten very close. If a few more of you can donate over the next few days, we’ll get there!

Mastodons: Not as cool as mammoths, but pretty ok

Today, I’m taking time out from the regular manosphere horribleness to recommend something nice.

We Hunted the Mammoth is now AD FREE

No ads to see here

By David Futrelle

Last year, a generous reader’s big donation enabled me to get rid of the most obtrusive ads on We Hunted the Mammoth. A few days ago, that same reader donated enough to enable me to get rid of the rest of the ads. Which is awesome.

Big THANKS to everyone who helped make the latest fund drive a success!!

By David Futrelle

The Spring 2018 kind of came to a weird close, with me knocked out for a couple of days by health crap. And then NEWS HAPPENED and so on and I didn’t have a chance to thank everyone who contributed.

Program Note: I will be on Matt Binder’s DOOMED podcast today (Saturday) at 1 PM eastern

I took the graphic for Matt’s show and ran it through a filter that basically made it look worse because why not? I like running things through filters, ok?

It’s PLEDGE DRIVE again. Please DONATE HERE NOW! Thanks!

By David Futrelle

So yeah, I’m going to be on Matt Binder’s podcast talking about, you know, all the sort of shit I write about on this blog. If you’re not a regular listener, you may remember Matt as the guy who sort of demolished Paul Elam in a YouTube debate a couple of years back.

I’m still here! Thanks for your support, and your patience

What this year has felt like for me (artist’s conception)

It’s been a while.

I’ve been taking time off from the blog for as I try to deal with an assortment of health issues that have been hitting me especially hard in recent weeks. This year has been a tough one for me, health-wise, as I’ve continued to deal with seemingly unending chronic migraines as well as worsening sleep problems that have seriously derailed my life and my work.

Progress in dealing with these issues — and several others I’d rather not go into right now — has been frustratingly slow, in part because my particular problems have proven rather resistant to treatment and in part because, well, let’s just say our healthcare system here in the US isn’t what you’d call perfect.

But things have been getting a little better in recent days and I’m hoping I can get back to regular posting shortly.

Thanks for your patience. I very much appreciate your support.

— David
