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.

Until next time, a quote,

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.

Brianna Wu is Running for Congress

I’ve said how I was done talking about Crypt Keeper Wu, but when I saw this video on my Twitter, I couldn’t resist.  This is the the funniest thing I have ever seen.  It’s funny for all kinds of reasons.  It seems that Brianna Wu is running for Congress.  That’s right, she’s going to put her hat into the political arena.  The whole reason that I am making this post is so we can watch and enjoy her first congressional ad, and shed some light some of the things that she’s done and see if that makes her congressional material.  First things first, let’s see this wonderful magnum opus that is her video.

First things first, I do love the pic they got for her to use as the one time we see her face.  It is a marvel that they found a pic which doesn’t make her look like the nightmarish ghoul that she is.  I’m honestly not going to pick apart the video.  A million people have done that already.  I’m just going to provide some context for the media who may or may not talk about her congressional run to know what kind of woman she is.

I’m so glad she brought up GamerGate.  Aside from the bulk of the electorate not knowing what the fuck that is, it is a nice segway into one of the first thing to talk about in respect to Brianna.  Like how she lied about being driven out of her home by EVIL GamerGaters.  Here’s a video that broke it down pretty well.  In a series of interviews between the dates of 10/13 to 12/09 of 2014, Brianna was talking about how she was driven out of her home and scared for her life.  The person in the video was able to notice something about the location that she was being interviewed at in all of these new segments.  There’s this skid mark on the wall.  Not so weird, right?  Well, something to know about that skid mark – it’s in her office.  So, Brianna was basically doing all of these interviews from her office.  Guess where her office is – in her home!  So, her whole song and dance about being run out of her home?  A lie.  100% pure bullshit.  But I’m just getting started.

Wu traded in victimhood, just like most SJW women.  However, unlik e her contemporaries, she didn’t have nearly the skill at it.  Zoe Quinn was busted orchestrating a harassment campaign against Candace Owens which torpedoed her Kickstarter campaign.  Anita Sarkeesian is a masterful con artist.  The best in her class.  Only difference is she just wants people to give her piles of money so she can do nothing.  But Wu wasn’t so good at it.  See, she tried to get in on the action without first realizing that trolling for victim points is more art than science.  Her failure was just beautiful.  What she did is try and bait trolls into saying hateful things on her on Steam.  Here’s a link to a screen-cap.  It’s beautiful in its contemplation. Instead of switching to an appropriately-misogynistic sock-puppet account, she decided to do post something that was blatant fishing from her own Steam page.  Brilliant.

Years of Wu lying, manipulating every media outlet she can into sucking her dick (there is no confirmation that her transition was complete), and her cashing on her victim points every time she possibly could is interesting in and of itself.  After all, doesn’t she say in her ad how she beat the “alt-right” of GamerGate?  Gee, it sure would be a shame if most of the people associated with GG were part of the libertarian-left.  But the really grotesque part of this is the kind of woman that will use the dead as a prop to sell her victimhood.  Don’t believe me?  Well, there’s a fun story ahead.

During the heyday of GamerGate, there was a completely and utterly unrelated story of a woman named Amber Lynn Schraw.  She was strangled to death by her ex-boyfriend and left naked for her son to find.  Something which I am sure has scarred the kid for the rest of his life.  The news broken, and guess what our good “strong woman” decided to do – exploit it to show how in danger she is.  In a Tweet heard round the world, she shared a link to the article with the words, “Tell me again how my life isn’t in danger.”  This dead woman, who left four children without a mother and one child scarred forever, was nothing but a prop to this disgusting, putrid pile of shit in human skin.  I was disgusted by it then, and I’m disgusted by it now.

I wonder if, in that video where she talks about how she is going to stand up for women’s rights, she will acknowledge using a dead woman as a prop.  I think her potential constituents might like to know.  Maybe David Pakman might have liked to know, when he did his soft-ball interview with her that she blew up on him about.  Maybe the people at Huffpost would like to know, when they were kissing her ass just as hard.  I don’t know, maybe they would have liked to know.  The limp-dick media is going to cheer her on and talk about what a hero she is, both as a woman and as a trans person fight for “women’s right.”  Never mind that a dead woman was NOTHING to her but a prop to use to sell a narrative.

This woman’s 15 minutes of fame has gone on far too long.  Hell, it’s going on even now.  But hey, let’s not say that Brianna is a cold and heartless bitch.  After all, it’s not like she is going to already start smearing her opponent and doing every disgusting trick that she can to make herself look good.  Right, Brianna?

brianna-wuOh.  Well, shit.

Let’s Answer 11 Sexist Things a Feminist (of .Mic) Says Men do on Dates

Well, because I am wonderfully original, and I have just now seen this post kicking around my anti-SJW circles, I thought I would respond to an article where a feminist lays out 11 things that she sees as sexist that guys do on dates.  Some of these are fucking hilarious.  I’m just waiting for the feminist to come along and say that dating at all is sexist.  That men choosing to be around women is sexist.  If these people had their way, men would be asexual imps who have no hormones whatsoever until the woman that they deem worth being interested in permits them to.  Although, that sentiment is already out there.  Saw a woman who posted an article that any form of vaginal penetration by a penis is rape.  No joke, doesn’t matter how much the woman wanted it, if a man has sex with you, it’s rape.  Well, I think I’ve done my usual introduction for long enough.  Here’s a link to the article, now let’s respond to this shit.

1. Don’t expect sex in exchange for something. Don’t expect sex, period.

So, it’s only men that want sex?  Really?  Wow.  How demeaning to women.  It’s like – hey ladies, we all know that you have no sexual desires.  And, of course, no woman wants a date to lead to sex.  Nope, that never happens.  See how sexist modern feminism is?  It takes all autonomy away from women, and puts all of it on men.  Unless this person’s argument is that if a woman wants sex, it’s fine.

Next, what guy expects sex in exchange for something?  Douchebags.  That’s who.  The average guy just wants to go out with a girl.  Maybe they are hoping that it leads to sex, but they don’t just automatically think, “she will totally fuck with me if I take her out on a date!”  The kinds of guys who think that way are the Roosh V’s of the world.  And we all know how society views them – as pathetic.  Please don’t foist your stupid beliefs about how men are on me, thank you much.

2. Don’t tell women they’re “better” or “different” than other women to curry favor.

What if a woman wants that?  Man, this fucking article is so sexist.  It continually denies women’s autonomy.  What if she likes the idea of being seen as different or better than other women?  Isn’t the whole idea of a date to show that you find that particular female of a grade that appeals to you above other women?  I’m having a hard time seeing what you’re driving at here.  And how does that curry favor?  Like, will the chick automatically be like, “he said I’m different!  That wins him points in my book!”  Though, then it comes down to the idea that pretty much everything said in a date is to curry favor.  The whole purpose of a date is to have the person you are with see you as viable relationship material.  That doesn’t happen by being a dick to them.  At least not with most women.

3. Don’t assume women are interested in having your babies (or anyone else’s, for that matter).

Oh my Groj.  I’m dying.  Who fucking does this?!  Who just assumes that women are instantly interested in having their babies?!  Yeah, that’s a first date thought that I’ve had.  I can’t even tell you how many times I have been out with a woman and been like, “that chick will totally want to have my children someday.”  Hell, I don’t even want children!  So fuck thinking that some girl I am going out with will want them.  Where is this person getting their ideas on men and how they think on dates from?  I guarantee, every guy knows that if they bring up babies on a first date, the date is dead.  There isn’t a single man who actually believes it is a good idea.  Is this chick talking about Mormons?  Maybe they’re the ones who see a first date as a potential baby-maker.

4. Don’t treat a woman like she exists to service you.

I saw the Groj, it’s like this chick is just taking the very worst stereotypes about men and then applying them as broadly as possible.  Honey, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret, most guys you meet don’t think that women exist to service them.  A guy who is taking a girl out on a date is almost guaranteed to see her a potential partner.  Catch that work – partner.  Meaning that it is something that they are in the journey that we call life together.  They are hoping that the person they are with will see them that way too.  So, since they see them as a potential partner, they will see it as a chance to find out what the relationship dynamic will be.  Some guys are more dominant, some guys are more submissive.  Same with girls.  Some girls want to wear the pants in the relationship, some don’t.  Love to see the autonomy you’re giving to women still.  It’s really equality-minded.

5. Don’t comment on how much she is or isn’t eating or drinking.

This part depends.  I mean, yeah, don’t tell her that she eats like a hog.  But what if she likes food, and likes to eat food?  What if she is getting really wasted and you are commenting that maybe she should stop?  After all, if you drove her to the date, it’s understandable that you don’t want her puking in your car on the drive home.  But if the girl likes to talk about food and really enjoys chowing down, what’s the problem in talking about the food she is eating.  Hell, I’ve gotten into arguments in a Thai restaurant with a girl I was having fun with about who was going to eat the last of the dinner portions.  It was fun.  I’m assuming you’re talking about guys who make snide remarks about women eating like pigs, and sure, that is rude.  I guarantee, that date isn’t going to end well for them.

Also, what if a girl isn’t eating and the guy feels bad?  Like, maybe he thinks she doesn’t like the food.  Then he feels bad about taking her someone that the food wasn’t what she wanted.  That’s a totally rational thing to wonder about.

6. Don’t say dumb things about women’s faces or bodies.

Like what?  Citation, please.  You mention some chick was cut off by a guy about how he couldn’t stop looking at her legs.  What if a girl wants to be complimented about something?  Are you EVER going to take women into account when making bullshit statements like this?  What if a woman wants to be complimented on certain attributes?  If a girl went out of her way to dress up or accentuate a part of her body, doesn’t that mean that she wants that part to be noticed.  I see a girl in a dress that practically has the tits falling out, I’m going to assume that she wants her boobs to be noticed.  I am so blown away by how little you regard the opinions of other women in this article.  Your examples are so few, because I guess it’s hard to get opinions from women on the subject when most women who dress up want to be noticed.

I mean, if we’re going to talk about some dude being like, “nice tittes!” then yeah, that is a little lacking in social graces.  But if some guy is like, “I love your hands” or something, then where’s the problem?  I get the feeling that the only things in relation to women’s faces or bodies that they are talking about are involved with sex.  After all, sex is the thing feminists are scared of the most.

7. Don’t impose chivalry

Oh, fuck off.  There is no imposition by a guy holding the door for you or pulling out your chair.  That is so stupid.  If you are out on a date with a guy, do you want him to just shut the door in your face?  Maybe he can pretend like you’re not even there.  If a guy puts his jacket over a girl when it’s raining to keep her dry, even if you aren’t interested in him, at least be fucking grateful that he cares enough to be nice.  That doesn’t mean you owe him sex, but at the very least it means that some courtesy would go a long way.

8. Don’t assume that, because a woman looks like your ex or another woman you’re attracted to, they’re interchangeable.

What?  What man, anywhere, thinks this?  Your example is that some guy apparently got disappointed when some girl didn’t look like the pic he had of her.  He’s into redheads, it seems.  What’s the problem?  If she advertised herself as a redhead, and she comes in bleach-blonde, doesn’t he at least have a decent reason to be a little disappointed?  The guy in this narrative (since there are no citations anywhere, I’m going to assume that most of these stories are bullshit or exaggeration) gets really vocal about it, which is a little rude, but there’s nothing wrong with a guy having preferences.  You put this on him seeing her as interchangeable with his ex.  Maybe he just likes redheads?  Men are allowed to have preferences.  So are women.

Which makes me ask – if a woman reacted this way about a guy, is it also wrong?  I keep seeing behaviors that you prescribe to men that I could just as easily make the case are applicable to women.

9. Don’t insult a woman just because she’s not that into you.

Wow.  An actual piece of decent advice – don’t be a dick.  Good thing that most guys aren’t.  They can be awkward, forward, shy, weird, nice, whatever, but most guys aren’t dicks.  Typically, if it’s a bad date, the guy will just go home and maybe feel a little bad.  Or maybe jerk off.  Whatever.  But again, aren’t women just as capable of this as men?  Is it as bad when it’s a woman?

10. Don’t have double standards

Man, if it wasn’t for double-standards, you feminists would have no standards at all!  “Hey guys, here’s a list of 11 things that you shouldn’t do!  Even though it is perfectly reasonable that we could do them!”  There’s an old phrase that rumbles around the anti-SJW circles – it’s only sexist when men do it.  And given the things that feminists like Anita Sarkeesian bitch about, that’s pretty true.  This entire list is a double-standard.  It ignores women’s autonomy and pretends like all the sexist behaviors that go on are the result of men.  Fuck this noise!

11. Don’t assume a woman is doing something just because she wants to service your boner.

This took me a few seconds, but I think I got it.  So, don’t assume that a chick is doing something just to get in your pants.  What if she says that she wants to fuck.  Isn’t that doing something to get into your pants?  What if she’s rubbing your dick over your pants.  Doesn’t that mean that she wants to get in there?  Sure, a guy shouldn’t just automatically assume that anything a girl does is sexual innuendo.

But hey, remember that thing we were just talking about, with double-standards?  I bring this up because nowhere is more applicable than in this statement.  Hey ladies, don’t just assume that everything a guy is doing is to get into your pants.  If there is ANY group who needs to be told this, it’s feminists.  The woman who wrote this article is assuming that all of us men are sexist, chauvinistic pigs who see dating as just a prelude to sex.  This entire fucking post has been about that.  So don’t stand there and tell me that it’s men who need to ditch the double-standards, when you fuckers are saying this bullshit.

Well, that was plenty stupid.  Let me know what you all think down on the comments.

Lucien’s Review: Ghostbusters (2016)

ghostbustersI finally got around to seeing it.  That’s right, because I’ve been bored and sick and laid up, I finally got around to seeing this remake that was so polarizing.  The Internet lost its shit about this movie.  The SJWs came out and made this film their hill to die on.  Sony was caught deleting comments in order to try and advertise this movie on how much people hate it.  Turns out, that was a bad idea.  See, when people hear that a movie is hated by everyone, that usually causes them to have some follow-up question.  Such as – why does everyone hate this movie?  At which point, they may do a little investigating, and discover that nothing in this movie looked good.  And let me tell you, all the people who believed that this movie was going to be some epic fail, I wish.  It’s not good, but this idea that it would be so bad that there would be a lot to make fun of is sadly too much for this movie to hope for.  I haven’t been more bored watching a “comedy” film in my entire life.

I remember when Nostalgia Critic did his review of that cinematic abortion that was Master of Disguise, he said “there’s only so many ways that you can say, ‘that’s not funny.'” And he is absolutely right.  There are only so many ways that I can say that the new Ghostbusters isn’t funny.  Ever.  I have laughed more at Wayans brothers sewage than I have at this movie.  At least with those they are so terrible that you can occasionally get a giggle out of what a piece of shit it is.  This?  This was tedious and if I hadn’t have been sick, I would have switched to something else.  The power of disease, people.  It’s amazing.  I’ve never watched any of Paul Feig’s other works, but if this is what he makes, then I am just that much more glad to have Edgar Wright making movies.  I’ve drawn it out enough.  Let’s talk about this…movie.

The plot isn’t a continuation of the Ghostbusters story, or even a soft reboot.  Nope, the original Ghostbusters are totally shit-canned.  It’s a hard reboot, only this time with chicks!  That’s right, this is basically just the original Ghostbusters, minus all the charms, wit, comedy, chemistry, and with chicks.  You can basically see where the plot is going to go from the start by keeping that in mind.  There isn’t a single deviation, aside from a queef joke or two.  Because that’s SO funny.  Ugh…

What to harangue first.  Let’s talk about the “effects” in this movie.  See, while so much of the rest of the film is boredom, the effects are pure ass.  These effects were dated in 2000!  I’ve seen Saturday morning cartoons with better CG.  Hell, Beast Wars looked better, and that was dated as fuck!  The ghosts in this movie look so bad, and it’s so clear that they were never in the room with these people.  I can only imagine what filming was like.  “Hey, look surprised at the green screen!”  Say what you want about the original movie, but at leas it looked like something was in the room with you.  For the days when practical effects were still a thing.

Now let’s get to the performances.  I remember when the trailer was coming out, and people were thinking that it was going to be kinda quirky and really cringe-y, that was giving this film too much credit.  Kristen Wiig looked bored.  Melissa McCarthy was actually trying, but was given absolutely nothing to work with.  Kate McKinnon was trying WAY too hard to be quirky.  There’s something for the restrained nerdiness of Harold Ramis in the original film.  But hey, if there is one thing that this new film can’t be accused of, it’s subtlety.  Every single thing that the film wants you to notice is so in-your-face that I half-expected a sign telling the audience “that’s the funny part! Laugh now!”  Too bad there wasn’t ever anything funny to go with that sign.  Oh, and the elephant in the room – Leslie Jones.  All the talk about how she is a stereotypical black person.  I wish!  At least that would have been funny!  Her character is just as dull and lifeless as the rest.  And not ONE of these actresses has any chemistry with the others.  None.  Their interactions was like watching a play in elementary school.

One of the performances that sticks out most to me was Chris Hemsworth.  In this movie, he is so fucking stupid.  Since his character meant to be the male equivalent of Janine from the original film, I have to ask – Paul Feig, is this how you saw Janine?  Did you see her as the stupid secretary?  If so, then I kinda say…fuck you.  Janine was a no-nonsense New Yorker, through-and-through.  She took shit from Bill Murray, but only because he was her boss.  To other people, she was blunt with a bit of a sassy streak.  I loved her character.  She was, what’s the word?  Oh, right, funny!  All of Feig’s talk of how women are so much funnier than men, and here I am appreciating a woman’s performance in a much better film.  To Hemsworth’s credit, he doesn’t appear to be taking any of what he’s doing that seriously.  As pants-on-head retarded as his character is made out to be, at least he recognizes that and isn’t going out of his way to do anything amazing with the role.  This is just a paycheck, to him.

Then there’s the villain.  This guy has all the subtlety of a Captain Planet villain.  It was groan-inducing.  We’re supposed to take this seriously?  Listening to this dude monologue just made me appreciate the villain in the original film that much more.  No painful monologues about how EVIL they are.  Just that creepy face and that creepy voice.  I swear, this movie tried my patience during those scenes.  It sure is nice that they have this villain explain how evil they are.  Because otherwise we might have had to have gradual character development.  That’s too much effort for this movie.

Next up, let’s talk about the cameos.  This shit was painful.  Bill Murray looked medicated.  Not a surprise, since the leaked emails from Sony showed that they were going to threaten him with legal action if he didn’t play ball.  Ernie Hudson finally got to be in Ghostbusters again.  Given how he has continually gone to Comi-Con in uniform for so long, it’s clearly something he wanted.  Funny that leaked info showed that he wasn’t a fan of this new film concept either, until he was offered a paycheck.  Though, he seems to be doing well.  After all, he was in the magnum opus that was God’s Not Dead 2, so I’m sure his career is just fine.  No need to worry at all.  Sigourney Weaver looked bored.  Annie Potts couldn’t have cared less.  Dan Akroyd was trying WAY too hard, but I guess he’s the one who actually wanted to be in this piece of shit.

But the biggest thing I have to stress is – this movie was so fucking boring.  Not one joke landed.  The only time I thought there was clever delivery was in the line after the realtor tells them how much it will be to rent the space of the original film.  The quickness of her response was pretty good.  Not funny, but at least it was good delivery.  Which is more than I can say for the rest of this snooze-fest.  I swear, I nearly fell asleep watching this movie.  Maybe that’s because I’ve been sick, but this film was about as interesting as watching flies fuck.  Not one joked landed.  That is two hours of my life that I will never get back.

Which is the best way to describe this movie.  After all the screaming and fighting about this film, it’s boring and will be forgotten in five years.  It’s another crappy reboot to add to the pile, all of which no one will remember.  That’s all for the good, if you ask me.  I wish I could give this movie a really low rating, but that would imply that it will be remembered by me.  After I publish this review, I’ll eventually look back through old posts and be like, “holy shit!  I actually watched that movie?  When was that?”  SJWs died on this hill, for absolutely nothing.  Were it not for the TERRIBLE special effects, this film would be a middle-of-the-road movie.  Let’s give this sucker a number and forget about it.

Final Verdict
4 out of 10

Non-Gamer Says Gamers are Ruining Video Games (A response to Cracked)

You know what I hate – how Cracked went from a pretty funny website with funny articles and funny videos to being SJW shit.  That’s what it is – SJW shit.  I didn’t want that to happen, but it did.  Same thing that happened to College Humor and pretty much every other “comedy” site on the Internet.  After all, what comedy is better than PC comedy, am I right?  In a recent video, Cracked decided to have a non-gamer come out and say that us gamers are ruining games.  He claims that he is a gamer, but the reality is that he isn’t.  He’s a poser, pretending that he has all the street cred in the world.  What’s his street cred?  He played Baldur’s Gate.  Well, that sure does sell me.  It would be funny if he didn’t contradict that statement in the video.  I’ll share the video with you all, so you can’t say I’m taking things out of context.  Let’s get to it.

Alright, buddy, you go right out of the gate saying something stupid.  You say that video games are failing.  By what metric?  Financially?  Fuck no.  You say that they were supposed to surpass movies as the new art form.  I would argue that they have.  Hollywood films are churning out sequels, remakes, and reboots so fast that the moment something original comes out, I am stunned.  Meanwhile, while this medium does have a lot of sequel, remake, and reboot bloat as well, at least it has engaging stories that I can get invested in and art design that makes these stories come to life in unique ways.  What about video games is failing?  He gets to his first assertion

Too much violence

That’s why games are failing?  Is violence a little much in games, sometimes.  For example, I love the game LA Noire, but even I admit that there was a ton of violence for no reason.  It was like there were two games in there.  The first one had me solving crimes by getting clues and interrogating witnesses.  That part of the game was fucking awesome!  Then there was a part of the game where I was chasing people, shooting people, and going through insane action set-pieces.  That part of the game got a little repetitive.  However, is the argument that violence is ruining gaming?  If so, then that’s stupid.

He even shows a Tweet by Johnny McIntosh!  Are you fucking kidding me?!  This man’s credibility to know what the fuck he’s talking about is dying by the second.  But I guess the argument is that too much video games are about violence.  If all you see in games is the violence, that’s on you.  As for me, while there are plenty of violent games that I love, the reason that I love them is because they tell unique stories.  It is the story, the character development, and the narrative growth between the violence that gets my attention.  But Hipster McGee’s brother in this video is defending Johnny McIntosh.  Unreal.  I want to punch this hipster faggot.

The anger about people’s reaction to Johnny McIntosh is bad and says bad things about gamers

For the days when Cracked was funny and poked fun at social justice.  I remember those days.  Granted, they were short-lived, but they happened.  Hipster McGee’s brother is one of these people who says that he doesn’t like to call himself a gamer.  Why?  Because gamers are all dicks on the Internet.  His words, not mine.  No, dumb-dumb, it’s people who play video games as a hobby.  You are the stupidest person I have ever seen.  I hate how this guy is so thinly veiling his social justice bullshit behind a wall of trying to say something important about us gamers failing the industry.  Still haven’t heard a single argument about something us gamers are concretely doing, aside from buying video games that are violent.  And I have debunked that garbage.

He says that GamerGate was an “Internet harassment group with ties to white supremacy.”  And his proof is…what, exactly?  Oh, right, none!  He just moves on from there without a single shred of evidence.  Gee, that’s convenient.  Oh, right, he’s an SJW.  The day that they have anything approaching a nuanced argument is the day that my cat sprouts wings and flies.  And, of course, GamerGate says lots of bad things about us gamers too.  We are a terrible bunch of people, if you listen to this hipster and his ilk.  He then makes this wonderfully stupid connection that games about killing people ties in to his assertion that us gamers are angry assholes.  There are not enough faces or enough arms to facepalm how stupid that is.  Yes, because all of us gamers are angry man-children who go into GameStop and tear things apart because of a bad game, right?  What’s that?  We don’t?  And this guy is using the comments on ANYTHING as indicative of something other than the comments section of stuff being cancer?  Right.

We don’t actually care about story

Fuck you!  This is where the hipster faggot’s argument and his credibility just dies.  He says that he grew up with Baldur’s Gate, yet us gamers don’t care about the story.  Really?  A game that is almost-entirely driven by story, and you are saying that us gamers don’t care about story?  That’s neat.  But this idea that us gamers don’t want a good story is insulting.  It’s insulting to the people who have told some truly amazing narratives with this medium, and to people like me who have enjoyed them.

As an example – The Last of Us.  The gameplay in that game wasn’t especially deep or complicated.  It was a pretty simple game, but what made it truly fantastic was the story.  The story of Joel and Ellie.  A narrative with character depth that has made for some truly fantastic arguments about it on various message boards.  It’s the reason that the sequel is going to be on a list of mine, in the not-too-distant future.  I cannot believe that this little hipster worm is going to make such a huge assertion about gamers not caring about story, when the only reason I buy a game is if the story looks good.

The hipster worm actually claims that the stories have never, will never matter to “us.”  Don’t lump yourself in with me, you scrawny piece of shit.  I do care about the story.  It’s all I care about.  Sure, if the gameplay sucks, I won’t be able to get into a game, but the story is the first thing in my mind.  It’s the reason why I think that Final Fantasy XV is a good game, but not a great game.  It has a fun open world to explore, but it does this at the cost of the story, which is boring as fuck.  My biggest gripe with the game is that the story basically gets thrown in the face of the people who play it because it just dies after a while.  Like all the creative energy behind the game crashed and burned.  Part of me wonders what it would have looked like to see Tetsuya Nomura’s original vision.  The hipster worm is actually claiming to speak for me when he says that us gamers don’t like the story.  Fuck this guy.

He goes on to argue that The Last of Us is bad because the story is at the mercy of the game’s controls.  He argues that Ellie is supposed to be seen as vulnerable (which is NOT how I see her), and that’s why Joel saves her at the end.  This guy is so stupid.  The reason that Joel sells humanity up the river at the end of the game is that she is his only connection to the human condition, and he is willing to sell out humanity’s future in order to not lose that.  And Ellie sells out her desire to save the human race to be with this man who is a father to her.  She knows that he’s lying to her, but chooses to stay with him anyway.  I fucking hate this hipster faggot who is making these arguments and claiming to speak for me and all the gamers out there who love this game’s story.

We don’t care if games are art or not

Oh, fuck off!  Let me guess, he brings up Gone Home next.  Ugh!  You know what my argument is – games already are art.  Look at games like Shadow of the Colossus.  An incredible vision design, fun gameplay, and a very gripping narrative.  But maybe that game is too mainstream for you.  I don’t deny, there are plenty of games that I love that are viewed as “art games.”  Most recently, ABZU.  A game that is entirely a water level, which you would think would make it terrible, but it has smooth controls and a gorgeous visual and sound design that makes my eyes well up at the end for the dramatic conclusion.  Then there’s Journey, the most visually-arresting game I have played, with a tragic narrative about a tragic character and the dead world he lives in.  Or games like Flower, where you play as the wind, with the entire game’s experience being a metaphor for a person moving in to a new city and making a life for himself or herself.  But those things are niche.  However, for those who desire them, they have their niche.  Why must all games conform to this?  What are these “art” games that you think are being so ignored?

Once-again, the hipster worm claims to speak for me saying that I don’t care if a game is “art.”  First, what do you define as art?  Second, how do you know what I think?  Third, how on Earth do you have the balls to compare my views on the artistic merits of gaming as comparable to a teenager’s views on booze?  I fucking hate this guy so much.

He then makes the argument that if we “really cared about art,” we wouldn’t have hated the ending to Mass Effect 3 the way we did.  No, dumb-dumb!  That isn’t a problem about caring about art.  The problem with that ending was that it throws out the game’s ENTIRE logic in the trash.  It spits in the face of every logical part of the game by giving you three stupid endings that make no sense and fly in the face of all the logic that the game had so fastidiously built for us with the Codex.  There have been a TON of truly fantastic videos about why the ending doesn’t work.  We don’t care about the artistic merits of the God Kid and the bullshit that comes from his holographic mouth.  What we care about is narrative and universe rules consistency.  The ending flies in the face of all of that.  This guy is so stupid.  I want to beat him over the head with a water bottle until knowledge comes into his head.

Video games are not relaxing

This man has never played ABZU, Flower, Journey, flOw, or Never Alone, just to name a few, and I’m done with this hipster worm.

I hate when people who aren’t actually gamers have to try and convince us that they are in order to sell their bullshit narrative.  And I especially hate when some hipster who clearly grovels at the feet and spent the first two parts of this video white knighting for an SJW claims to speak for me.  I will never wish violence on anyone, but if this guy should just so happen to fall down a flight of stairs into a buck of pork chops and then find the honey badgers, I won’t feel bad.
