Lucien’s First Take: Dear White People (Netflix Trailer)

You know, I’m starting to think that anti-SJWs are becoming just as bad as the SJWs they mock.  Why?  Because it seems like every little thing now leads them to some stupid boycott that won’t work and doesn’t really matter, yet gets trending on Twitter to make them feel like they are doing something important.  Recently, the trailer that we are going to watch got them all to have their panties in a bunch and start a boycott of Netflix.  Really?  Over this?  I’m a fucking hipster douche canoe who doesn’t even have streaming on Netflix and still does DVDs and even I see this as stupid.  Yeah, you just learned something about me that really makes me look pathetic.  I understand if you look down upon me.  It’s the same reason that I will have such a hard time getting into downloading games instead of having a disc copy.

This stupid boycott was started over a trailer that has a like/dislike ration that eerily mimics another big SJW-approved piece of work.  I wonder what that could be…?  And just like that one, battle lines have been drawn.  The title of this work is “Dear White People,” and I thought that we would look at this trailer and break down our impressions.  Weigh in with a more sensible voice about the nature of how good or bad it is.

So, we first get to see an image of stereotypical white people.  We have Douchebag Von Asshole V, and Betty Steenvirgin waving, as a black woman is about to tell me what kinds of Halloween costumes are acceptable.  Here’s the answer – any fucking kind I want.  I have the right to dress whatever way I want for Halloween.  As do you.  As does anyone who is watching this bullshit.  If you don’t like it, you are free not to associate with me.  As you are clearly a person with far-left, SJW political opinions, I doubt we would get along anyway.

Then it has a headline – America Needs.  Boy, I can think of a thousand things that I could fill in that end space with.  How about – to get away from dogmatic thinking?  Or maybe – to kick these SJWs to the curb?  Or, perhaps – to stop being so fucking pussy that we can’t deal with opposing points of view?  Yeah, those are all great things to fill in there.

We then get her deciding to go into a tirade about blackface.  Here’s where I am going to say something unpopular – I don’t give a fuck about blackface.  Really, I don’t.  Is it stupid?  Yeah.  Does it portray an ethnic group in a way that may be unflattering?  Probably.  But here’s the thing – that kind of shit only offends you if you have some kind of allegiance to your race.  This is something that I do not have. For example, we see our white people stereotypes.  Are they unflattering?  Sure.  Do I care?  Not at all.  Hell, I think they are kind of funny.  Like the cliche of what liberal elitist snobs are supposed to be.  These are the same kinds of people who are listening to what this bitch has to say and taking it seriously.  It isn’t the frat boys who actually want to live their lives as they see fit without breaking the law.  It isn’t the middle class people who are just going through their day-to-day and don’t give a flying fuck about all this identity politics stuff.  It’s yuppie snobs who are in Ivy League universities who are the biggest proponents of this kind of rhetoric.  The very people this woman is using to deride white people are the exact ones who are the first to come to her defense.

I have no allegiance to white people.  Hell, I don’t have an allegiance to the human race.  I’m a misanthrope.  I hate my species off-hand.  So I take people as they come.  If someone wants to mock white people, I say go for it!  Hell, I’ll join you.  I have made fun of hipsters with such gusto that my disdain for them has reached epic proportions.  I’ve made fun of rednecks.  I’ve made fun of yuppie Ivy League college students.  You want to make fun of white people?  Go right the fuck ahead.  I don’t get offended because it doesn’t mean a thing to me.  My race matters just as little to me as your race does.  I don’t give a fuck about your race either.  Fuck ethnic groups and their pet issues.  It’s beneath my attention to talk about.

So when this woman gets all butthurt about blackface, my thought is – why do you care?  I’m sure I’ll get someone who will come on here about how black people have been marginalized and shit.  Well, that was then.  Back then, blackface was an insulting thing to black people.  Nowadays, people don’t do it because it isn’t funny.  It’s not culturally acceptable.  The people in her video as example of blackface all seem to have something in common – they are young adults.  They are people in their early to mid 20’s.  The years when they are rebelling against societal norms and living on the edge.  It’s frat people and college punks looking to be offensive on purpose.  Gee, when you look at it like that, it’s almost like she is giving these people attention that they were already looking for.  Much like how Bill Maher wore a costume of Steve Irwin with a stingray barb in his chest shortly after he died.  Yeah, that was offensive, but it was done intentionally.  Getting mad about him about it just feeds into what he was looking for in the first place.

These people aren’t dressing up as you for Halloween, sweetie.  They are dressing provocatively, with the intent of getting reactions.  The fact that you let it affect you so strongly says more about you than it does about them.

And that’s it.  So, is the entire premise just some radio chick who uses the latest SJW talking points with black comedy interspersed among it?  Huh, maybe Madea will make a cameo.  Is this some big statement against white people?  No.  That’s stupid.  Would I ever watch it?  Nope.  I don’t go to Everyday Feminism because there’s only so much stupid I can handle.  Why would I watch a series personifying that kind of thinking?  And here’s the thing – this series will likely go the exact same route as that other SJW hill they had to die on.  It will be forgotten not long after it debuts.  So, with that in mind, let me give my Final Verdict.  For those who know how I rate things, it will make sense.

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.

Onision the Pedophile

I genuinely thought that today’s person to hate was going to be Lena the Sister-Fucker Dunham.  What she said about wishing she had had an abortion was pretty fucked up.  But nope!  That isn’t the person that I will be talking about.  Instead, I am going to share one of the most morally reprehensible stories that I have ever read, about a YouTuber who everyone already knew to be a scum-fuck, but now we get to see that he is also a pedophile.  At least, if you examine the fact that he runs a forum where he asks teenage girls to submit their underwear pics for him to judge on his YouTube channel.  I am, of course, talking about Onision.  Onision the pedophile.  Don’t believe me?  Here is a fantastic article by Heatstreet.  Read for yourself.  It will blow your fucking mind.

As I said, I already knew that Onision was a scum-fuck.  He’s been using his Internet fame to troll for 18 year old pussy for years.  That’s been pretty common knowledge.  A man on the cusp of 30 is trolling for barely legal pussy.  The guy has also been implicated in some ugly shit that involved an 18 year old girl who he was with for a time, got pregnant, and then broke up with because of some insane drama involving her and a musician that she was talking to on Twitter.  Check out that shit for some drama madness.  But that article just blew my mind.

Think about this, for a moment.  If some 40 year old man was asking for girls to send him pics of them in their underwear on a forum, would you think that that is anything other than morally disgusting?  Would you see that person as anything other than a pedophile?  Of course you wouldn’t.  And the worst thing of all – these girls want this.  They want to give a sexual predator pics of their nearly-naked bodies for him to judge in front of the entire Internet.  I cannot begin to comprehend the fucked-up mentality that goes along with this kind of behavior.  Teen girls will defend the actions of this guy, when if it was anyone not seen as attractive by their crowd, they would see him for the pervert that he is.

But here’s the thing that really gets to me – since Onision is riding the SJW train now, I wonder of he can get some of the support that Butts got.  Remember Butts?  Sarah Nyberg?  A wonderful trans pedophile that got all kinds of Internet support because she is part of a community who died on the hill defending that piece of shit.  There was one person who actually sent that immoral sack of shit a pic of their child to help cheer her up.  Yeah, that’s not disgusting and basically giving a treat for the unmasking of a sexual predator.  Thankfully, that situation was set right when the authorities were involved.  Hopefully that piece of shit gets to see the inside of a prison cell.  Maybe she can share it with Jared from Subway.

Really, though, the person I feel bad for are not only the stupid teen girls who are too fucking ignorant to know that they shouldn’t be putting their bodies out for all to see, but for their parents.  None of the crazy shit going on on that website would have been thrown into the public eye, were it not for the mother of a 13 year old girl who was as disgusted as everyone should be by seeing their child being exploited by an amoral prick like Greg.

For years, I have seen this guy just go from bad to worse.  He is a con artist who will piggyback on whatever he can in order to troll for views.  First he did his hackneyed comedy, which includes the best video he ever did where he got in a banana suit and danced around.  Then he tried to troll The Amazing Atheist and even get him to go onto the Steve Wilkos show with him to drum up the drama.  We then see him make a video where he is debating “Repsock” for almost an hour because Mr. Repzion wouldn’t debate with him, all while his 18 year old wife is pregnant.  The guy then makes feminism videos where he is clearly trolling for SJW pussy.  I haven’t seen the SJW crowd speak favorably of him.  Maybe he finally found a crowd that he can’t manipulate.  Now we find out he makes videos using the pics of teenage girls in their underwear to critique their bodies.

But perhaps worse than all of that is that probably at least one of the teenage flying monkeys (that is an actual psychological condition) will come on here and defend this behavior.  Just like the women who defended Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold because they were considered attractive.  Just like women who defend serial rapists who are good-looking.  There is something in the female psychology that says that you should be sexually attracted to people who do terrible things, so long as they are conventionally-attractive.  It always blows my mind.  These girls send him these pics!  Do they not care that he’s a sexual predator?!  Or maybe it’s more repulsive, and that appeals to them even more.  The very idea makes my skin crawl.

Which brings me to the fact that, as disgusting as Onision is, these girls are not innocent in this.  This isn’t victim-blaming.  However, they have every opportunity not to make the choice to send in their nearly-nude pics.  They could have been born with some sense, or taken a moment to stop and think about the fact that they could end up having their nearly-naked bodies on the Internet for all to see.  They could have stopped and actually used that gray matter that they are apparently wasting to realize that these videos will follow them around for the rest of their lives.  Or maybe they are too stupid for that.  Maybe not one of these girls was born without a single ounce of common sense.

As for you, Greg, you are a fucking pedophile.  You are openly asking teen girls to send you pics of them in their underwear.  I know for a fact that you jerk it to that.  If I was a religious person, I’d think that there is a special place in Hell for people like you.  But you and Butts are cut from the same cloth.  The difference is that Butts is disgusting and repulsive.  Teen girls want you to exploit them.  How long until you aren’t just having them send underwear pics in?  How long until it’s nude pics?  That’s assuming you don’t already get those.  That’s assuming that you haven’t already acted on this.  Either you have, or it’s only a matter of time.  A fact that fundamentally fills me with rage.  Fuck you, and your fucking hipster face.

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.

Let’s Respond to 33 “Fat Phobic” Comments

A YouTube channel called Wear Your Voice Magazine (a publication that I’m sure will take it’s place right alongside The Mary Sue) decided to post a video where they address 33 “fat phobic” comments.  I hate this term.  It’s just as stupid as “Islamophobic.”  That’s not a real thing.  I’m not afraid of Islam.  I find it repulsive.  I’m not afraid of fat people.  The chub on my belly would be a little weird about that.  I just don’t find obese women attractive.  The girl that I’m kinda-sorta in a thing with now has more than a few extra pounds on her.  She is very critical of it, but it is motivating her to work out and get healthy, because she wants to be fit.  I applaud her.  Still, I think she’s dead sexy as she is now, extra weight and all.  It isn’t a phobia.  I just don’t want to be with them, sexually.  Anyone who has watched BuzzFeed’s questions videos will be familiar with how this works.  Here’s a link to their video, now let’s talk about it.

Do you think you keep weight on to intentionally avoid intimacy?

The lead-in with this line is that I guess it was this girl’s shrink who said this.  While that is a really weird question, it is legit.  So many of the SJW landwhales are so scared of sex that I honestly think that they do keep the weight on to not be attractive to the opposite sex.  Or their own, if that’s what they’re into.

Even your voice sounds fat.

There are rude people in the world.  Something that gay people and any other group of people have figured out is that you have to be pretty thick-skinned to get through life.  The thing is, you women (oh, I’m sorry, womyn.  Because if they are associated with men, then that’s just evil) get to have all sorts of shoulders to cry on.  Meanwhile, the short, chubby balding dude has to suck it up and deal with it.  Funny how that works.

Wow, you really work out?

The problem with these comments that these women supposedly have gotten is that because there is absolute-zero context given, I have no idea where this remark came from.  Let’s assume that all of these comments are real, because it makes this easier, moving forward.  Was this from a friend?  Maybe they were actually glad that you are.  I don’t know.  But you seem the type who wants to assume the worst.  So yeah.

If you were skinnier, you could TOTALLY be a plus-sized model

What’s the problem there?  They are saying that you are attractive.

Wow, you can’t choose to be black, but you can choose to be fat.

Not with everyone.  Some people have gland problems and things like that.  But those people are rare.  The simple reality is that the reason that the bulk of America is fat is because of a problem that Doug Stanhope so eloquently pointed out – they need to plug up the top hole because they’re eating too much.  I’m actually so much better about eating too much.  I am so regimented in my dining habits.  But I still like crappy food.  Pizza is my jam.  I love to cook, and guess what my favorite thing to cook is – desserts.  I make these choices.  So do most of you.

You should try the Zone Diet

What’s that?

People like you aren’t supposed to wear bold colors that call attention to your body.

If you want to look slimmer, yeah.  Dark colors are slimming.  There’s real science behind it.  Some kind of trick in the eyes.  The people telling you there are right.  This person is rude, but they aren’t wrong that wearing brighter colors does make you look fatter.

You don’t have the body type for a dancer.

Shows what that person knows.  There’s this S&M club that I frequent where one of the women who I enjoyed talking to the most is a stripper who is all about being a plus-sized dancer.  Given how much she takes home each night, there’s clearly a market for that.

Everyone wants to be skinny because there are NO benefits to being THAT FAT.

Yeah.  Being fat is a horrible thing.  It is murder on your body.  You are doing so much harm to your body by being fat.  Your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other conditions skyrockets.  Both of the first two run in my family.  As does obesity.  On both sides.  Another reason why I like to go out for walks every night after work.  It helps me burn off the sedentary calories from my desk job and helps me avoid something that is a real risk.

I wonder what you would look like thin.

It is an interesting thought.

I’m just worried about your health.

As they should be.  Obesity is a horrible thing and it does horrible things to you.  If this person cares enough about you to want to help you live a better life, what’s the problem?  They are worried about you.

Is your partner fat too?

Shows what they know.  Remember that woman I mentioned earlier from the S&M club?  Her guy is the skinniest little dork you’ve ever seen.  He is her bitch, in more ways than one.

I really love what we got going on, but I’m just not into…big girls.

I see what happened here.  You are into somebody, and they are pretty tight with you.  You tried to go the distance with them, but they aren’t attracted to you.  Well, sorry, buttercup, but life isn’t fair.  Sometimes things don’t work out the way you wanted.  Sometimes you are just a friend to someone.  Deal with it.

You’re so brave to dress like that.  I wish I didn’t care what I look like.

Without any context, this could mean anything. She could have gone out dressed in a clown suit, for all I know.  And this makes me think back to that bit on Family Guy about how women don’t know how to be friends.

Having curves is not the same thing as being fat.

It’s true.

It’s hard to believe that someone like you exercises.  I bet you can’t even run one mile.

Yeah, this person’s a dick.  Life is full of dicks.  Interspersed among the comments that are clearly taken out of context or not as bad there are genuinely rude things.  As I said, mean people exist.  That’s life.

There’s no point in losing weight. You’ve already ruined your body.

That’s blatantly not true.  Entering a healthy lifestyle can always do good things.  Granted, the longer you maintain a lifestyle where you treat your body like the frat in Animal House, the harder it will be.  But if you were to start exercising and truly do find a healthy habit to do, then I guarantee that you would be better off than living the way you are.  The person who said this is retarded.

You’re gonna wear Spanx (is that right?) with that, right?

Don’t even know what that is.

I don’t understand.  How can your blood pressure and cholesterol be way lower than mine?

It’s a valid question.  Got a family member who I don’t get how her cholesterol is so low.  The thing is, cholesterol isn’t just affected by eating, but also by what you eat.  If you gorge on certain foods to absurd excess, you are still can be fat, but it can be not nearly as bad for you.

Are you sure you wanna wear a bikini?

Also a valid question.  There are some women that I imagine in a bikini and I’m legitimately freaked out by.

You get cat-called?

Part of me thinks that they trolled the YouTube comments sections for some of these.

Some people are fit and they prioritize their health.  But some people don’t, and you aren’t, and that’s okay.

I don’t even get where the problem here is.  This person has told you that they accept how you live your life, but imply that they don’t respect it.  I would be much the same.  I have obese family members.  I still care for them, but I don’t respect how they live.  If this sort of statement bugs you this much, then clearly you are covering for some DEEP insecurities.

Do you even know what vegetables are?

Jerks exist.

Are you pregnant?

Suddenly thinking about the line in that movie with Hugh Grant.  What was it?  Two Weeks Notice, I think.  Yeah, it’s rude to assume.  That’s on them.

You know, if you were stranded for six months, you would survive because you have enough fat to feed on.

Assuming that you had access to water, shelter and some basic nutritional items to keep you from falling apart (like nuts and berries), yeah.  You are much more likely to survive if you have fat stores.  That’s why fat exists.  We are supposed to burn it as fuel.

I would kill myself if I got fat.  I mean, no offense, I don’t think you should, but it would ruin my life.

Hate to break it to ya, honey, but it is ruining your life.  Being obese is destroying your body.  That’s a biological fact.

Thunder thighs!

Jerks exist.

If you lost a bit more weight, you’d be hot.

Might be true.  Try it and find out.

Put some clothes on, you busted-open can of biscuits.

Jerks exist.  Not apologizing for them.  That is rude.

Would he love you more if you lost weight?

Probably not.  Clearly he cares about you for who you are.  Hence why he’s with you.

I would date you if you weren’t fat.  You’re a very pretty girl.

All the tact of a freight train, but yeah.  Being fat means that less people are attracted to you.  Complain all you will, but I guarantee that you don’t want every man or woman that you see.

You’re the model?

Zero context.  How did this line come up?  Were they wanting some super-skinny woman for a modeling shoot and they sent you?  Did you show up for a shoot expecting them to want you?  Without some kind of context, I can’t respond to this in a reasonable way.

If you want to be successful in your career, you have to lose weight.

Hard truth moment – yeah.  It is infinitely easier to get ahead, especially in the corporate world, if you’re pretty to look at.  Life is a beauty pageant.  An unfair, unrelenting beauty pageant.  Those who look good are clearly at a better place than those who do not.  I work for the state, so I got lucky.  I’m in a profession that is pretty chill.  However, in the dog-eat-dog world that is corporate America, being attractive is a boon.  Sorry if the truth hurts.  Not really.  It’s time somebody told you.

And that is the end of that list.  Were some of those comments rude?  Absolutely.  No question.  I don’t apologize for rude people.  But they exist, and you have to deal with that.  Make peace with it as best you can.  Otherwise, you are in for one rude awakening after another.

The “You’re No Better” Argument

If you are like me and have a very negative viewpoint of SJWs and third-wave feminism, then you have probably heard something to the effect of “you’re no better than the people you make fun of” or “your side is just as guilty” to begin a counterargument against what you have to say.  I have heard it more times than I can count, and I find this argument more than a little annoying.  It is a blatant dodge to avoid having to answer your own point, but the thing that bugs me more is when they make the argument about me personally.  It’s one thing when it’s people who tend to think as I do, but it’s something else when they accuse me of it as an individual (situation).

It is impossible to argue against the idea that there are anti-SJWs who live in just as much of an echo chamber as those who are in the SJW camp.  There are so many channels on YouTube dedicated to nothing but a giant circlejerk on both sides.  That’s an objective fact, and I won’t go disputing it.  To do would be dishonest, and mama didn’t raise no hypocrite.  However, saying that our entire movement is just as much of a circlejerk as those we oppose is simply dishonest.

My favorite content creators on YouTube have shown that they will talk to all kinds.  TJ and the members of The Drunken Peasants have shown that they virulently disagree with Milo Yiannopoulos on all kinds of issues, but they were willing to sit down and have a very heated but still civil debate with him on their show.  It is one of their most popular episodes, and I really liked how Milo and Paul could get so animated against one-another and still be able to come together and be civil at the end of it.  That’s how I have always tried to view things.  The Bible Reloaded has done everything they can to avoid both sides of the SJW debate, but their audience has seen fit to allocate them into one circle or another, based solely on who they did a video with or who they talked to.  It’s frustrating how those outside of the content creators (or at least the most vocal of them) tend to just go off the rails the moment one group of people talks to another.  It happens on both sides.

Which brings this back to me personally.  When I am told that I am just as bad as the SJWs that I criticize, I can’t help but be amused.  Why?  Because the simple reality is that that is the farthest from the truth.  I could sit down with Anita Sarkeesian and have a very civil debate with her on her talking points.  I think she’s a con artist, but that wouldn’t stop me from being a good journalist in that instance and being willing to talk to her.  No joke, the opportunity to do so would be the most amazing experience I could ask for.  Being the person to look at Anita’s human side (if such a thing exists).  I could sit down with Steve Shives and debate his points of view.  Some people are shocked, but aside from the SJW stuff, I think that Milo and Lauren Southern are full of shit.  I dislike almost all of their major talking points outside of the parts we agree on.  But I could sit down with either of those people and have a very lively debate about our perspectives on things and walk away feeling both challenged and energized.

Are there those who are just as bad as the other side?  Obviously.  When some of the people I agree with take shit from their audience about their points of view, it’s hard to deny it.  But this is NOT indicative of myself or the movement as a whole.  Keep that in mind.  Some of us like to see opposing points of view.  I follow conservative and liberal people, and that’s fine.  I have friends on both sides of the aisle.  Not all of us want to have our points of view sucked off by our contemporaries.  We just want to talk.
