Bad PR 111: Anita Sarkeesian, Sargon of Akkad, and “Garbage Humans”

As anyone will tell you in the world of entertainment, all it takes to ruin a spotless image is one bad comment.  Ask Michael Richards or Gilbert Gottfried what that’s like.  Do I think that’s fair?  Not at all.  In Richards case, his biggest issue was that he could never let it go.  People would have forgiven him if he could have stopped bringing it up all the time.  He let his bad choice of words ruin his career forever.  Gottfried took the smarter approach – lay low and just let the buzz blow over.  Now he’s alright.  But some people who do something stupid have a bad habit of just digging themselves a REALLY deep hole.

Let’s look at Hillary Clinton and Kathy Griffin.  Both of these people are women who decided to be very stupid with their language, and rather than shut up and lay low for the worst to blow over, they just kept piling on and on.  In Kathy Griffin’s case, she hired a lawyer to be a mouthpiece for her butthurt instead of just taking the licks like an adult and walking away from what happened.  Hillary Clinton is arguably worse.  After blaming literally everyone for her failure except taking even the slightest smidgen of personal responsibility (she learned it from SJWs), she then blamed the DNC.  You know, the people who rigged the primary for her and openly said they have no compunction about doing it again.  Women that the left cheers for have a bad habit of not knowing when the shut up and let the damage blow over.

Which brings us to Anita Sarkeesian.  At VidCon yesterday, there was a panel where Anita Sarkeesian was speaking.  A ton of the anti-SJW crowd went and sat front and center, wanting to actually get to see her human side.  To be clear, they weren’t heckling her, they weren’t taunting and jeering at her.  By all accounts, they were respectful as could be there.  One of these people was Sargon of Akkad.  When Anita eyeballed him, she decided to put her own foot in her mouth.

This may just be the most unprofessional thing she’s ever done.  Which is genuinely surprising, to me.  It’s pretty clear that Anita is calculating.  Everything she does is part of maintaining a narrative of her victimhood and how she needs everyone to come to her defense.  I’ve long maintained that she is a con artist, and that hasn’t changed.  My first thought when I see stuff like this is – we’ve finally seen a human moment with Anita Sarkeesian.  People went to that panel in the hopes of seeing her be human, and that’s what they got.  For a brief moment, the human side of one of the most profitable online con artists came out.

But here is where my PR education comes into play.  What happens next?  What will Anita do?  I honestly don’t know.  Already the fans of hers have gone after Sargon and he has publicly called for the people hosting the Con to ban her from the cyberbullying panel that she will be a part of.  There’s no way she will be banned.  Of course not.  If Hank and John Green actually did that then they have would have the SJW tirade so far up their ass that it would never stop.  Anita and her cohorts have already shown that they can orchestrate a harassment campaign at a moment’s notice.  Like how Zoe Quinn went after Candace Owens using her friends and sock accounts.

So the question becomes – what will you do next, Anita?  You’re going to be back on stage, and Sargon has already said he will be there.  In fact, you can guarantee that the rest of the anti-SJW chums will be there.  I’m sure they’ll be respectful, as was the case yesterday.  Will you lose your cool again?  Will you use this as another opportunity to smear?  What will you do?

I am genuinely curious to see what happens next.  Because there are a couple of options here.  First, the smart option – play it down and just stick to the message.  Or even better – skip the panel and quietly walk away from this.  Let the Internet firestorm die down while your white knights do the fighting for you.  It’s what she’s done before.  The second option is the double-down option.  Where she goes on that stage and then says that she is totally blameless and it is everyone else’s fault.  Then it becomes a savage war of online videos where the white knights and the detractors blitz and the Internet loses its collective shit.

The thing is, Anita, this doesn’t make you look good.  There are a TON of videos where people show video footage from the event where you are spouting at someone who didn’t do anything to you.  He wasn’t heckling you.  The audience wasn’t attacking you.  You hijacked the panel and used it as a platform to attack Sargon as soon as you saw him in the audience.  From a PR standpoint this makes you look like a vindictive cunt.  You had to make a panel about being a woman online and promoting female content creators about you and how mad you are.  It was a genuine human moment, in all the wrong ways.

I just don’t get why someone who has been so careful about the narrative and the usage of a platform only when she approves to do something like this.  Some people have said this was a calculated move, and I don’t think so.  There’s no good angle here.  It’s too easy to show that Sargon wasn’t doing anything to her, and that the panel wasn’t being harassed. Naturally, her white knights will paint is as just that.  They’ll say the panel was being so horribly abused by all those EVIL anti-SJW YouTubers.  But there is video evidence that that wasn’t happening.  Only after Anita started running her mouth did the crowd get rowdy.  That’s understandable.  So this wasn’t calculated.

Perhaps all of the stress is really getting to her.  That’s natural.  See, when the SJWs go out into the real world, where their viewpoints can be challenged, they crack pretty fast.  Anytime they are at a platform where the narrative isn’t tightly controlled, they lose their ability to keep the focus only where they want it to be.  It’s why watching a debate between Brianna Wu and her opponent in the congressional election she is now a part of would be funny as fuck.  For Sarkeesian, being in an environment where she can take criticism and actually have to answer legitimate questions probably scares the shit out of her.  Sargon even said later on he just wanted to talk to her, which she blew off.  But I bet the thought of having to answer real questions from people who won’t accept pithy answers is the most frightening thing in the world.

Maybe that’s where the calculus of this comes from.  Instead of having to answer questions, she creates a firestorm so she can just not have to.  I bet that’s what will happen at the cyberbullying panel, because it’s a virtual guarantee that the audience will have legit questions for her there too.

The PR lesson is this – this was a bad move.  A very, very bad move.  Whether this was her human side coming out, or desperation coming into play, Anita has done real damage to her image.  This isn’t going to go away.  Just like the video where she says that she isn’t a gamer and doesn’t like video games, now this video will haunt her where she called a detractor sitting politely in the audience a shit-head and a “garbage human.”  Will she recover?  That is what honestly interests me.  Because I have seen Anita’s abilities as a con artist to be kind of inspiring.  I can’t wait to see what she does next.

Zoe Quinn Harasses ‘The Last Night’ Director For Supporting #GamerGate

Oh look, it’s everyone’s favorite professional victim who is back to wear her victimhood like a badge of honor even though the Internet forgot about her years ago.  And since she can’t just sit back and let herself fall into obscurity like the vulture that she is, when the director of a new game that looks pretty cool came out and she found out through her information network that he had said positive things about the now-defunct culture war #GamerGate, she had to get her little army of minions to go out and attack him.  I am, of course, talking about the director or The Last Night.

See, the director of that game actually believes that ethical standards in games journalism is something worth fighting for, and that the world of Indie games is a toxic circlejerk of multi-colored hair warriors who have to suck each other off so hard.  And since Zoe Quinn hasn’t been in the public eye in so long, just like Brianna Wu she had to get the old victim train going.  Also just like Brianna Wu, Zoe is a cunt-rag who tries to play off what at terrible person she is as everyone just being mean to her.

Let’s take a look at the narrative she paints for herself.  According to her, she was the tragic victim of a horrible man who chose to slut-shame her and paint the scarlet letter on her in the public square.  And ever since she has been the victim of virtually non-stop abuse by all the evil people of the Internet.  That’s the narrative that she paints.  The same one that her and her more-successful professional victim comrade Anita Sarkeesian painted in front of the UN while they argued that the Internet should have everyone who disagrees with them removed.  Not that Zoe would know what it’s like for people to disagree with her.  Her echo chamber is so massive that she lives in it.  Every time that she has even slightly ventured out of it the weight of her lies almost destroyed her.

What is the truth?  Simple – her ex-boyfriend Eron wrote a hugely-long post where he laid out how betrayed he felt by her.  Among the endless reasons why was the fact that she had been cheating on him, with five people.  Mundane’s Matt and Internet Aristocrat’s video of what happened led her to being the catalyst to the online culture war known as #GamerGate.  And very quickly Zoe became forgotten amongst the far more interesting topics at hand.  Topics like the fact that several of the people who she had cheated on Eron with were people who had covered in the games media before.  In fact Nathan Grayson became a far more interesting topic than she ever was.  All she did was create a boring video game about living with depression.  A choose-your-adventure game about depression.  Yeah, sounds like a recipe for great “gameplay.”

After the storm that was GamerGate died down, Zoe found herself in the media in other ways.  Like how she was busted red-handed leading a online blitzkrieg of attacks against Candace Owens.  There had been a blog post where she laid out what had happened, and how she was able to put together that Zoe was directly responsible for the attacks against her.  A really scum-fuck thing to do.  As I said, she went to the UN, where she desperately tried to sell that the Internet still sent daily hate to her, even though it is easily-provable that the Internet moved on from her not long after the hashtag #GamerGate was founded by Adam Baldwin.  Given how she was able to generate an attack against Candace Owens through mysterious anonymous sources, it’s not hard to think that probably most of the hate she has ever received was from the same sock-puppet accounts.

Oh, and let’s not forget the leaked chat logs from Crash Override Network, Zoe’s little circlejerk of victimhood that showed that she had actively sabotaged the Rebel Game Jam she had been a part of in order to cash in on the social justice points and make herself look good while the rest of them look bad.  I still believe the person who sponsored that event should sue her.  Or how she doxxed and ruined the Fine Young Capitalist’s fundraising event to help promote women in gaming, which she didn’t like because they weren’t promoting her.  And just like all feminists with a sense of entitlement up her non-existent ass, she had to make them pay for not making everything in that project about her.  But again, she’s a victim.  Not a scum-fuck.

Now she has turned her refusal to let her 15 minutes of shame die into an attack against someone who hasn’t done thing one against her other than support an online movement.  That’s it.  That’s all he did.  Then Notch had to go and take the Internet’s ire by calling her a cunt.  Which, you know, she is.  Indefensibly so.  Zoe Quinn is a cunt with a capital C.  She is a horrible person who wanted to make a game that was neatly stealing the show at E3 about her.  Because why shouldn’t a big game reveal be about her?  And of course the parasites at Feminist Frequency have come out in support of her.  Why not.

Zoe, you are a cunt.  You are a terrible person.  I don’t lightly use that term, but it describes you perfectly.  What’s more, you actually believed you are owed something for the fact that people see you for what you are after all of the debacle that you were barely a part of.  You believe that you are owed.  That just blows my fucking mind.  Zoe Quinn feels that the Internet owes HER for the shit she has pulled.  No, Zoe!  You owe people an apology.  People like Eron, who had those of us who supported GamerGate donate to his defense fund, which when you realized that the trial didn’t make you look good you dropped.  People like Candace Owens, who busted you dead to rights for a campaign of doxing and harassment through sock puppet accounts.  There are so many people who you owe.  But you won’t.  After all, admitting wrongdoing just fucks with the narrative.  Can’t have that.  Then you might start self-reflection and that might just lead you to realize what a fucking piece of shit you are.

Please Stop This Stupid Battle (A response to Kathy Griffin)

What do you do if you are an aging “comedian” whose relevancy has long since passed and you weren’t all that funny to begin with?  Easy – stir up controversy.  She’s not the first to do it, won’t be the last.  In this case, it was by making a video where she holds up a fake decapitated bloody head of Trump.  Riffing on Manson, I see.  Just like Amy Schumer, a woman steals material from a man and nobody calls them out for it.  I just love when it’s female comedians.  When Carlos Mencia and Dane Cook did it, their careers were effectively destroyed.  When these two women do it it’s radio silence.  Hell, hasn’t been a word about how unoriginal that creepy harpy is for her publicity stunt.

After that blew up in her face, what do you think the logical thing to do would be?  Maybe just sit back and wait it out?  Hope that if people don’t pay attention long enough that they’ll forget?  Not a bad idea.  The Internet has a short attention span.  President Trump is a continuous supply of golden material to make fun of.  The guy is fucking bananas, after all.  But nope!  She couldn’t even have the common sense to do that.  Instead, she went out and hired herself a lawyer and organized a big public event where she says that her career has been ruined and she attacks Trump for ruining her life.  Not only that, but she recently came out and said that it’s because of sexism that she is in the doghouse right now.  Really?  It’s because of sexism that people don’t like you anymore?  Not this stupid stunt that you did for the express purpose of ruffling people’s feathers?  You knew EXACTLY what you were doing!  Hell, you said as much in the apology video that you did.  You said that the goal here was to rile people up and do something tasteless, but it backfired and you were sorry.  Could have just left it there.  But no, now you hired a lawyer and are crying that you are the victim here.

What is it with people who do stupid shit and then have to cry tears about what victims they are of the results?  We’ve seen it time and time again.  From the unending salt mine that is the entire modern video catalog of Steve Shives, to the crying foul from Milo Stewart after she went out of her way to say inflammatory things.  People on the far left have a bad habit of doing really stupid shit and then crying the blues about how they are the victims of not their bad behavior, but instead everyone else.  See how well that’s working for Hillary Clinton.  She recently said that the reason she lost is because of the DNC.  Oh really?!  The people who rigged the primary for you are the ones responsible for why you lost?  The ego on that cunt-rag never ceases to amaze.  It’s everyone’s fault but her own.  A trait that Kathy Griffin seems to share.

But the truth is, Kathy, you brought this on yourself.  And this is coming from someone who doesn’t think what you did is that bad.  I actually think that you are being unfairly vilified by the media.  And the conservative reaction has been the definition of retarded.  I mean, as bad as ISIS?  Come the fuck on.  Yeah, because that head she held up was real, right?  The one that ISIS held up is.  Oh, wait, Trump’s retarded kid Baron thought it was.  Never mind, because no he didn’t.  That story is bullshit.  If that kid believes this his father, who is the President of the United States with a constant detail of Secret Service around him at all times that would notice of a hair on that rat’s nest he was out of order, wouldn’t notice that he had died then he is dumb with a capital D.  I think what you did was tasteless and stupid, but you have to go a lot further to get my dander up than some dumb stunt.  I got more annoyed at them announcing that the retarded-ass Resident Evil movies are getting a reboot than I did about you holding up that clearly fake head.

Here’s what needs to happen – you need to walk away from this.  Like, now.  You never should have called that lawyer.  Part of me can’t help but think that you are pulling a Brianna Wu and trying to take the victim narrative just so you can extend your 15 minutes of fame and get the SJW points that you feel you so rightly deserve.  Because if you can’t earn the respect of an audience, why not simply lie and play up the tragedy for cheap points?  A good tactic, if you are utterly drawn at the talent bank.  All of you want to be the next Anita Sarkeesian.  But you can’t be, because she is a very talented con artist.  You are just losers milking the fame for whatever it’s worth.

Just like with Steve Shives, this needs to stop.  You say your career is over?  If you keep this up, then it will be.  Thoroughly and completely.  Nobody will want to have you on their shows and nobody will want to have you involved in anything because they don’t want to be roped into your latest bullshit controversy that you’ll start spinning.  Maybe you’ll write a book about this someday.  Some nice revisionist history that you’ll use to cash in.  See how well that is working for Zoe Quinn and her book.  Well, she got Wil “Shut up Wesley” Wheaton to endorse it.  I bet that’s working wonders.  Be a fucking adult here, Kathy.  Just step back, be quiet for a while and the Internet will get bored.  The conservative “she’s a domestic terrorist” retards will move on to the next thing.  The longer that this narrative goes on, the worse you look.  Just let it go.

Lucien’s Unpopular Opinion: LGBT People Have No Right to Complain About Representation (In video games)

I read an article in some “news” site where they were complaining that the LGBT crowd (I limit my acronym to four letters.  Unless your acronym rolls off the tongue, you don’t get longer) don’t get enough representation in Hollywood.  One of my longest-running arguments against that sort of thing is that if they want to have more representation so bad, they should make their own stuff.  I mean, Stephen Universe came into being because SJWs wanted to make a cartoon.  Props to that.  However, thinking about films, I will at least acknowledge that it is harder.  After all, movies cost millions of dollars.  They take a ton of time and resources.  And while some filmmakers are able to do amazing things with the budget of a ham sandwich and balls of steel (that’s how one of my favorite movies Monsters got made), I at least will give that making movies is a hell of a venture so them making their own stuff would be more difficult.  Which would make me prouder still if some of the SJWs bitching about this decided to get together and make a film of their own.  Props.

However, I have no such sympathy for this argument when it comes to video games.  None whatsoever.  Why?  Because in a medium where it has been shown that making quality products can be made with smaller and smaller resources, these people bitching about their representation not being enough are fucking stupid.  After all, an Indie darling that was Kickstarter funded and got so big that it competed with AAA games at game awards was made by one guy.  One guy!  Most of you probably know what I’m talking about – Undertale.  That game was made entirely by one extraordinarily gifted individual.  One person can make a game so good that it competed against industry juggernauts at the Spike TV game awards.  What does that tell me?  It tells me that with the right people and enough effort, making truly fantastic games can be done on a shoestring budget with one person.

I can hear the counter-argument – but Lucien, games made by SJWs already have been ridiculed across the board!  What games?  Games like the cleaning-simulator Sunset?  Or maybe you are talking about the garbage fire that was Crypt Keeper Wu’s project Revolution 60?  In both of those games cases, the reason people hated them was because they are trash.  They sucked.  Their mechanics were dull and their respective elements were the absolute worst.  Which leads into my next – “what about Gone Home?  That game was all about a lesbian girl and people hated it!  Doesn’t that show you what people think of LGBT people in video games?!”  No.  See, the problem with that game was that it was hailed as this revolutionary piece of artwork and gaming prowess by the ENTIRE game’s media.  This was a status that the game simply didn’t deserve.  I actually happen to like games that are deemed “walking simulators,” but only I don’t call them perfect visionary masterpieces.  I will NEVER give a walking simulator as 10 out of 10 unless it transcends the medium in a way that has never been seen before.  The lost Silent Hills playable teaser is the closest that the genre has ever come.

So, what is the next counter-argument?  I think I hear it – “Making games is hard!  Why should we have to go so far out our way to learn this medium if we just want to play it?”  Because if you aren’t willing to get off your lazy ass and make something great on your own, then you have no right to complain that nothing is ever made for what you want.  The tools to make games are becoming more and more accessible now than ever before.  Game engines are out there in the public domain to make your own products.  One of my favorite Indie games was made in my home state by a team of eight programmers and a shoestring budget working with local natives.  Those people wanted to make a game about Alaskan Native culture and legend.  And guess what – they fucking did it!  After taking the time to learn and become incorporated, they did what they wanted and made the game they wanted to make.  Even made a tiny DLC for it that while it was super duper short, was still a cute story.

A person at one of my favorite Indie gaming companies broke away from them because he wanted to take on a mission that sounds utterly impossible – create a video game which is ENTIRELY a water level.  A concept that has so much negative history behind it that the fact that they made it at all is impressive.  But it was one of my favorite games of 2016 – ABZU.  These products are made by people who want to make the games that they do.  They left bigger companies because they had a vision and a drive to make it their own.  Are you honestly going to argue that the LGBT community does not?  I don’t buy that for a minute!  Not for one second do I believe that there aren’t tons of LGBT people who may work for the industry or want to learn it.  My sentiment is that I believe if they are wanting to make a game for their demographic, go for it!  Make it that best that you can.  And I may actually play it too.

But here’s the thing to keep in mind – pandering to a demographic means that your game is going to be niche.  That’s just how it is.  Unless you have the muscle of companies like Naughty Dog or Quantic Dream at your back, you won’t be able to hit the mainstream if you want a game that is going to be for a demographic you want to see represented more.  I say embrace that.  Some games do, and they are able to make a brand all their own.  Like how Telltale created the episodic point-and-click genre that will never be mainstream, but has its dedicated audience.  If you run with what kind of game you want to make and put enough effort and passion into making it a good product, even if you aren’t huge, you’ll still be liked.

Another piece of good advice – don’t read YouTube comments to see what people are going to think of your game when you start releasing trailers and the like for it.  YouTube comments is indicative of one thing and one thing only – cancer.  It’s a cancer on the Internet, and everyone who has been doing it for long enough knows that.  Expect the usual bigoted comments.  That’s just par for the course.  But here’s the thing – you’ll also get constructive ones.  I remember when the first trailer for Life is Strange came out.  Everyone was calling it “SJW: The Video Game.”  But I wasn’t convinced.  I wanted to see what the final product was before I condemned it like that.  It’s good that I gave it a chance, because despite the retarded-ass Mass Effect 3 levels of bad ending, it is my favorite game of 2015.

So if you got the grit to try and make your demographic represented in video games more, go for it.  But don’t expect the gaming audience to go easy on you if your game sucks.  We are a finicky bunch and if your game has flaws we will rip it to pieces.  But if it’s good, you will find an audience and can make your message heard.  I wish you luck.  No joke.  Even if you message is “Fuck straight white men,” if you make a product of your own, I support you doing so.  I wouldn’t like a product with that message, but at least I will support your right to make it.

In the meantime, for those in the LGBT community crying the blues about gaming not having them represented enough, learn to program with the Unity engine and get to work.  There is no excuse for you not to get involved if this is your passion and you want to see it change.  Don’t go expecting ANYONE to do it for you.

Laci Green’s Beginning to Redemption?

Some of you may already be preparing to call me a hypocrite.  After all, haven’t I made posts lambasting her and her terrible arguments?  Sure, and I still mean those.  However, Laci Green has recently come under fire from her own side for doing something that I guess the rest of them never thought of – talking to the other side.  Just like the woman who made the documentary “The Red Pill,” Laci Green has recently made a video (linked here) where she says that she has decided that she will start talking to anti-sjws and hearing what they have to say, because she wants to be a skeptic.  And part of being skeptical is listening to what other people have to say.  It’s why I follow people on the left and the right, so I can get all perspectives.  Granted, the level of hyperbole on both sides is deafening, but I do my best to at least attempt and be fair in my relegation of openness to perspectives.  It’s why I have an open comments section and refuse to censor opinions.  My comments are a pretty mixed bag of people on all sides.  Just fine with that.

Naturally, the moment that Laci made that video, the torrent of vitriol from her feminist contemporaries began.  She’s been called everything, from a fake feminists to just trying to be cool to even trying to get male attention.  It’s juvenile, it’s pathetic, and to be honest it should make her realize that her side of the fence has no compunction against turning on each other like dogs the moment someone doesn’t follow in lock-step with the feminist party line.  But she’s been subjected to that before and it didn’t turn out that way.  Years ago she was confronted by her SJW cohorts about calling someone a tranny and they went so far as to dox her, but that didn’t stop her.

So what changed?  As she says in her video, she decided to actually do this weird thing called engage with the other side of the fence to see what they were so upset about.  And as is want to happen when people open themselves up to another perspective, her preconceptions were challenged and she realized that they are people in the world who don’t think like her.  This injection of nuance didn’t sit well with the likes of Steve Shives, who proudly displayed his desire to only befriend people who could censor the people that he doesn’t like, even going so far as to say that he would never think of talking to people who don’t think like him because they are bad.  It’s amazing the lack of cognitive dissonance he has.  Steve, you really need to get away from your hatred of the other side.  More specifically TJ Kirk.  The Amazing Atheist is clearly high on Steve’s shit list.  TJ joked that it must burn Steve that his channel has over 1 million subs, while Steve is hemorrhaging support left and right.  Yeah, his dialogue with Laci shows that he is so salty about TJ’s success and is so miserable as a person.  Kind of makes me sad in a way.

But back to Laci.  A lot of people have asked me if I feel like this is the same situation as with happened with Ian Miles Cheong, who made a very vocal apology to the anti-sjw crowd and made clear that he was very committed to changing as a person.  I don’t consider them on par.  For starters, Laci has yet to apologize for some of the stupid and patronizing things she has said.  Maybe she can start by apologizing to Roaming Millennial and Phillip DeFranco for some of the shit she has done.  Or for that insane diatribe after Trump was elected that was the most base hypocrisy I have ever seen.  The reality is that if Laci is turning over a new leaf and looking to be fair to the other side, I think it’s only fair that she apologize for some of the bat-shit crazy stuff she has said and done over the last few years.  However, she may still do that.

If that were to happen, just like with Ian, I would accept her apology.  And even though I know she has no idea who I am and likely never will, I would be willing to have a discourse with her.  She still considers herself and intersectional feminist, but who knows where the future will take her.  For now I am content to watch the SJWs cannibalize one-another for all the adorable lulz that I can.  I’ve told the story of the dog team I came across more than once, and it is fitting here.  However, there is someone who I think can make my point a lot better who I will let close out this little interlude with.

Sex Robots Offend Feminists (A response to Feminist Current)

Do you all remember when anything about sexuality had the Christian right up in arms?  I miss those days.  Now it’s the feminist left who hates everything that men do with their dongs and their sexual needs, to the point of outright claiming that men’s sexual needs don’t exist.  Meanwhile, they will canonize female sexuality to the point that a man has to ask his partner if he can continue thrusting every ten seconds or else it’s rape.

And there is more and more push-back against this.  From the app where both parties would confirm their consent for sex beforehand, so men would have an airtight piece of evidence if they stuck their dick in crazy and get called a rapist after completely consensual sex.  Naturally the feminists were outraged.  Men finding ways to fight back against their insanity is always a bad thing, no matter how justified their reaction, after all.  That’s the “patriarchy” for ya.  And now we have a new contender to the throne of feminists outrage over bullshit – sex robots.  That’s right a robot that you have purely for sex that does not have sentience is a feminist issue.  Because of course it is.  I swear, one day the existence of men at all will be a feminists issue.  If women like the Femitheist are to be believed, it’s one that should be rectified with castration.  Here’s a link to this retarded article, now let’s talk about it.  And for the record, I am not a MGTOW.  Had some SJW call me that recently because I find modern feminism ridiculous.

Sex robots epitomize patriarchy and offer men a solution to the threat of female independence

Hey, ladies, I’m gonna let you in on a little something – THE ROBOTS AREN’T REAL WOMEN!  Retards!  Oh, let’s get through this.

People love to pretend as though everything from prostitution to pornography to sex dolls are a solution to not only men’s supposed loneliness and unmet sexual “needs,” but to their violent, perverse desires.

Wow.  I love this.  Because men don’t really have loneliness issues or sexual frustration.  Not at all.  Because no man is ever without sex.  Since we live in some mythical patriarchy, I can just go outside and grab a woman and start banging her.  That’s totally how this works, right?  The condescension of these people blows my fucking mind.

Similarly, men have claimed sex robots are the perfect solution to their apparent inability to stop raping and abusing women, as well as their inability to socialize with women as though they are actual human beings.

Citation, please.  What man, anywhere, has EVER said this?  Yes, because I have a massive urge to rape all women all the time.  This is so fucking insulting to men.  I have NEVER felt the urge and could NEVER bring myself to ever force myself onto another person, male or female.  The idea of sexually assaulting someone makes me sick.  I like it rough, but I go into that with people who understand safe words and I am very good about aftercare for those I have a kinky scene with.  I actually know how to be good with my partner in rough sex.  But I have never felt the urge to force myself on any woman.  Sure, I am currently going through some loneliness and sexual frustration issues, but there isn’t a single part of me that wants to force myself onto another person.  Fuck this stuck-up cunt.  I don’t use that word lightly.  This is such a disgusting generalization of men, and the fact that this woman believes it makes her the lowest form of scum imaginable.

In other words, Harmony is a dream woman — the perfect date. Men can pretend they value human interaction, while remaining completely dominant and enjoying an entirely one-way relationship.

What environment fosters this level of sexist bigotry?  I am dying to know.  Listen here, bitch, I would like nothing more than a two-way relationship.  Because I love to cook and talk to people, having a partner that I can make delicious food for while chatting about our views on life, politics, video games, movies, or whatever sounds wonderful.  Your beliefs about my gender is so disgusting, that it honestly makes me think – no wonder men are choosing to go to sex robots.  If I had the choice between a robot and someone as heartless as you, I’d go with the robot.  At least she wouldn’t treat me like shit for the genitals I have.  I’m assuming you’re a lesbian.  Hopefully women see you for the harpy that you are too.

Feminism has insisted, over decades, that women are human, that we don’t exist for men, and even that we don’t need men.

But remember, feminism is about helping BOTH genders!  Really!  *cough*Bullshit!*cough*

The misogynerds at Abyss Creations say they are “inventing the future of sex,” but what they’ve actually succeeded in creating is the epitome of male domination.

Oh, so these people who created Harmony are also misogynists too.  And your evidence is…what, exactly?  You continually make broad generalizations about men and it just bugs me.  Plus, it’s so obvious how fucking butthurt you are that people are finally making robots because real women are now more concerned about you respecting their identity as a poly-kin non-binary  wolf with Hitler as a headmate than about a relationship with you.  In a world where men and male sexuality is demonized and it’s now trendy to hate men because of their sexuality, how on Earth is the creation of a sex robot even a little surprising?  My girly-mate who is staying with me right now genuinely doesn’t believe that this kind of mindset is going to find cultural ground at large, but the truth is that it already has, and reactions like this bitch’s are proof of it.  A product made for lonely men is created by misogynists because all men want to rape women.  At least if this medusa is to be believed.

They don’t bleed, cry, vomit, or feel pain, which even porn stars can’t avoid doing when abused, as they so often are on film.

I’m gonna send this to Mercedes Carrera and see if she agrees with it.  As a woman who is very proud of her identity as a pornstar, I’m sure that her opinion on this issue would carry a lot of weight.

The robots, when they go on sale, will start at $15,000 each. The company also sells a more affordable option — for only $100 you can buy the bottom half of a woman’s face, to stick your penis into at will.

Hey ladies, for $20 you can buy a dismembered penis to stick into your vagina at will.  Oh, right, never mind.  Female sexuality is canonized.  It’s only sexist when men do it.  That’s the feminist mantra in a nutshell.

When he asks Harmony if she wants to walk, she responds, “I don’t want anything but you.” On the rare occasions she is allowed to communicate an opinion, it is immediately followed by insecurity: “What do you think about that?” Harmony asks McMullen timdly, after stating she would like to have sex with “both genders.”

I guess the writer of this article is unaware that Harmony isn’t self-aware.  It isn’t a fully-realized AI.  It has pre-programmed responses that it learns based on user input.  All responses are part of its code.  See, if Harmony was self-aware and had real emotions and real thoughts on things, saying that people using her only for sex and not caring about what she thinks might have some weight.  But she isn’t self-aware.  To put in Mass Effect terms – while she may be able to feign real feelings or sentience, she is just a VI.  Hell, it might even be convincing, I haven’t seen any videos of Harmony, but in the end, she still isn’t aware of what she is or where she is.  Just going off the code she is given.

These sex robots strike me as an MRA/gamer’s dream come true.

Hey, women who game, you are an MRA and all gamers want sex robots because none of us can handle real women.  I fucking hate this person so much.  It’s blatantly obvious that her butthurt is just overflowing here and she can’t help herself when she does nothing but make insults about the people who could use this product and generalizes men as much as she can.  Now she’s going after gamers too.  I bet she has a view in her head of gamers as the men in that episode of South Park playing WoW.  What is wrong with this woman?

Kleeman writes of a computer engineer named Douglas Hines who initially created robots to mimic friends and loved ones who had passed on or to communicate with, say, family members who could no longer speak, due to age or disability, but moved into the sex robot industry because he (rightly) figured it would be more profitable.

Not seeing the problem here.  A market for robots that can mimic dead loved ones is an interesting idea, but clearly wouldn’t be very profitable.  It makes sense to make a product that you want to sell to a demographic who you can see interested in it.

Similarly, McMullen says Harmony and her sister robots exist “for people who can’t interact with other people.” It’s not at all coincidental that this argument is the exact same one used in defense of prostitution. Women’s objectification and exploitation is always defended of the basis of some imagined defenseless, sad, disabled, lonely man who is confined to his house either due to mental or physical conditions or some kind of crippling shyness, and is completely harmless — a victim more than anything else. Prostitution, like sex robots, is claimed to be just about “making someone happy,” as McMullen puts it, and nothing more.

God, bitch, what is wrong with you?!  “I’m gonna make fun of this imagined lonely man who is so desperate for company that they will shell out money for a VI robot!  Because fuck that loser!”  That’s what I hear when I read this.  It REEKS of the most crude gendered insults imaginable, going after groups of men that it’s trendy to hate.  What a complete sociopath this hag is.  I fucking hate her so much.  That would be like me making fun of a lonely woman who has body issues for getting a dildo, which is something I would never do.  What kind of upbringing creates someone this devoid of empathy?  I’m just dying to know.  I would never encourage violence on anyone, but if this chick just happened to stumble down a well, I’m not shedding tears for her.  It’s pretty obvious she wouldn’t be for me.  Or any man, for that matter.

I hear feminists say over and over “what if you have a mother or a sister?!”  Well, I guess this bitch doesn’t have a father or brothers, because all the vitriol she throws at men make it clear that she hates this gender and wishes nothing but illness upon it.

The dream girl is, as always, not human.

No sugartits.  She just isn’t you.  Or anyone like you.  She’s someone with empathy who I can talk to and who likes my cooking.  But you have no empathy, so you don’t fall into that category.  Fuck your article, and fuck you.

Feminism is a Religion, and Now We have Proof

Many of the anti-SJW crowd have long contended that modern feminism is a religion.  It is EVERY bit as dogmatic as issues of faith.  And as we have seen in Phoenix, Arizona, they are now even arming themselves.  No joke, there was a battle of words between a left-wing and right-wing armed group at the capitol.  That was one of the most funny things I have ever seen.  It would be hilarious if the end of America’s credibility comes when we have left-wing and right-wing radicals shooting it out in the street.  It’s at that point that we are pretty much dead as a nation and waiting for our version of the Visigoths to take us out.  Modern feminism is a religion of intolerance.  It’s one where, if you dare to speak out against the faith, their leaders will attack you like rabid dogs.  Now they are becoming more and more violent in their faith.  It’s a marvel to watch.

The University of Regina, however, has added the final component that I needed to prove once and for all that this ideology is a religion – Original Sin.  The great mark of Catholicism is that they are firm in the belief of Original Sin.  And you have to confess your sins in order for God to forgive you.  A university in Canada has taken the same approach.  During a four-day event where they are decrying everything about manhood, they have set up honest-to-Groj confession booths.  No shit, here’s a link.  Check this out for yourself.  They are actually setting up places where they allow men with insane guilt complexes to tearfully confess all their misdeeds.

And what misdeeds are those?  Why, being manly, of course!  I am plenty in touch with my feminine side, so I am not one of these Red Pill, “Men must be masculine!” types.  However, there is a HUGE difference between being in touch with your feminine side and hating your man-parts so much that you are willing to go to a fucking confession booth and decry your very existence as a man.  That article I posted is fascinating.  A four-day ceremony where the religion of Feminism gets to have their priestesses come out and tell you why your Original Sin is bad and you are making life worse for women.  It’s incredible.

You know what the funniest part of this is, to me – that you have the likes of Steve Shives and other atheists who are part of this.  It just goes to show that really, all these people did is abandon one dogmatic way of thinking that controls their behavior for another.  These people are EVERY bit as controlling, judgmental, and heathen-shaming as the Westboro Baptist Church was at their worst.  Hell, we now have them going to events in Arizona with guns.  Here’s a link to an article about that madness.  Where could that have ended?  Where can it still end?  Lots of questions worth asking.

What’s more, these people’s version of Original Sin is just as gender-vindictive as Christianity.  It’s just the reverse.  Instead of all the world’s ills being the fault of a woman with an apple, it’s the fault of men and their penises, along with said urges to use penis and that testosterone to do man things (that aren’t crime.  I can already hear some SJW coming into the comments saying, “like rape?!”  These people are predictable as the sunrise).  They want us men to feel ashamed of who we are and how we live.  We are to be shunned and castigated just for the fact that I find boobs attractive, along with a nice ass.  Sure, if the girl is dumb as a brick, I am immediately turned off, but I got no shame in admitting that I like to fuck and like sexually appealing parts on women.  Like no women has ever liked the appealing parts of a man.  Or other women, for that matter.  After all, despite what your friendly neighborhood SJW would say, lesbians are a thing.  Though Groj-forbid they enter the subject of flaunting their sexuality.  Oh, but I guess if they are drooling over a girl and overtly hitting on her, it’s okay.  With the doctrine of the Church of Feminism’s Original Sin, it’s only bad when men do it.

The reality is that I am not ashamed of my masculinity.  I am not ashamed of the fact that I see a girl with a nice ass, I think it’s hot.  I am NOT ashamed of the fact that I am sexually attracted to women and like certain things on them.  Nor am I ashamed of the fact that I like violence and the occasional bit of masculine indulgence.  There is nothing wrong with that.  Since I also enjoy books, and some of my favorite films are thematic artistic works, it all balances is.  All of these things part of who I am.  And since I’ve never raped, murdered, or felt any inclination to do so, I think I’m doing alright.

I also am an atheist.  Do you know why?  Because I abandoned the dogma of religion a LONG time ago.  I am a skeptic.  I challenge viewpoints.  I don’t buy into this narrative that all of life’s problems are caused by men and “hypermasculinity.”  There is NO proof, anywhere, that such is the case.  Just as much as there is that you could stop rape by telling men not to do it.  Yeah, let’s ask all serial rapists if they would have stopped raping if they were told that it’s wrong.  They knew.  They just didn’t care.  I have no interest in going into yet another stupid religion.  I left the one I grew up in.
