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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Let the Salt Flow, Steve

I hate talking about Twitter drama, especially in the wake of a tragic event where a woman who I know I would disagree with on so many levels was murdered by a man on a drug-induced paranoia, but the worst part about this whole affair is that so many people have chosen to make this issue about their pet social affair without even a thought to the victims and helping people.  We have the feminists who have chosen to make this about how male feminists are hypocrites and secretly just monsters, and the anti-feminists who have made it about how this guy is a hypocrite.  It’s depressing, but I chose not to comment on it.  At least until I saw how Steve Shives reacted, which is perhaps the smallest way of all.

TJ Kirk decided to make a video (linked here) where he maligned both sides and posted a link to a memorial fund for Heather.  It was a kind gesture where he did his best to be open and to make it about the tragic death of a woman who truly should have seen the signs that this guy was not the best dude and gotten out of there.  But that isn’t what happened, and my condolences go out to the girl who was in the Skype call with them and to the friends and family of Heather.  That is horrible and I hope they can find some measure of peace.

But Steve Shives didn’t have this reaction.  Hell, he didn’t even have the action of demonizing anti-sjws.  No, his reaction was the worst of them all.  He decided to attack TJ for making the video he made, in one of the saltiest diatribes I have ever seen.  See for yourself.

I just love this.  Steve, I know that you will NEVER address anyone outside of you SJW circlejerk, but I have an open challenge for you – back this up.  Tell me where exactly TJ used condescension, degradation, intolerance, or shameless exploitation in the video I linked to above.  I’m all fucking ears.  Tell me where he was using hate when he asked both sides to set aside their differences and mourn the loss of someone who died well before her time because of a terrible event that was fueled by drugs.  She died alone in the street, and TJ said he felt sad about that.  He asked neither side to make this about their pet issues and instead embrace our common humanity to come together and even donate to a memorial fund in her name.  Where were any of the qualities you listed in that video?  This is an open challenge to you, Steve.  But I know you won’t accept.  I’m already blocked by you (#BlockedbySteve) and you have shown that you refuse to address anyone who isn’t one of your little minions.

For a long time, there have been those who have postulated that your entire beef with TJ is that he is infinitely more popular than you.  He has over 1 million subs, while your channel is slowly bleeding subs because no one wants to watch your shitty content anymore.  I am one of those people.  And with this disgusting diatribe you have basically proven beyond any doubt that that is EXACTLY who you are.  You are a petulant boy who is screaming and pouting because the other kids like him better.  Except they aren’t kids, are they?  Neither are you.  They are grown adults who have made a choice based on their own preferences.  But you haven’t progressed passed the angry middle-schooler who doesn’t get why everyone likes that other kid more when you are way cooler.

Steve, in the interest of trying to be the better person in the wake of this tragedy, let me try and appeal to a sense of decency (if you have one) – please, step back from your anger and get some help.  Wherever all this rage comes from, get it looked into.  It’s clear that you are miserable.  You spend all your time getting angry at other people and being your wife’s bitch.  No matter how kind and appealing to goodness the video TJ makes, all you can do is hate him and hate him being on YouTube.  When Laci Green decided to make a post where she said that she is going to be reaching out the anti-SJW crowd and attempting to engage in civil discourse, you railed against the idea that they are even allowed to speak.  You said that the only people you would make friends with are people who could silence their ability to speak.  You then make a jab at TJ, just for good measure.

Is this about that video TJ made where he basically destroyed you?  Yeah, I watched that too, and it was funny.  Did it burn you inside, to realize that everything he said is true?  That the people have spoken and they don’t see your content as worth anything and TJ’s as what they want to see?  I bet it did.  I bet it filled you with white hot rage as you listened to him tear you to shreds.  But you have no one to blame for that video except yourself.  You continually try and go after him and make him look bad, but all that ever does is make you look bad.  At least outside of the circlejerk.  Not that you would ever know.  As you told Laci, the only opinions you could even stomach are those that agree with your own.  Anyone with a different opinion is blocked.  Because if your confirmation bias isn’t confirmed and your hatred vindicated in your own mind, then why bother talking?

Get help, Steve.  This isn’t healthy.  The longer this goes on, the chances that when you finally grow the fuck up your audience will be there is less and less by the day.  Us anti-SJW types are kind of vindictive, but if I can give Laci Green another chance, when she has made some of the stupidest feminist-centric videos I have ever seen on that MTV abomination “Braless,” then I could give you a chance too.  I bet even TJ would accept an apology from you, but who knows on that end.

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.

This Needs to Stop, Dude (A response to Steve Shives)

I’ve talked about this guy in the past, and I was thinking that that would end there, but I honestly wanted to make this post responding to his latest video where he basically does everything but name names in an effort to express how angry and butthurt he is about how little he is regarded in the community that he believed he would have a prominent place in.  Where once he was liked and respected by the atheist YouTube community, now he is a laughingstock and is destroying his channel one video at a time.  After years of getting more and more upset, I guess the pressure got to him and he couldn’t take it anymore.  In what will be his magnum opus of butthurt anger, we have Steve Shives talking about “5 Toxic Things About YouTube Atheism.”  Let the salt flow…

This was painful.  But not just painful.  It was also just sad to watch.  It’s been made abundantly clear with this video that Shives is not bothered on some professional level or just a little confused or anything that could approach objectivity.  He’s angry.  He’s so angry.  All over this video is rage at the people who have finally taken off the gloves with him and destroyed him quite thoroughly.  Now that his channel is hemorrhaging subs, it’s clear that his time in any kind of spotlight is about to end.  And given how personal it has all been made, it’s pretty clear that he’s angry beyond a point that’s healthy.  Let’s list his points that he makes and go through ow each is bullshit.

It has a sexism problem

No, Steve.  It has a feminism problem.  A mistake that you make throughout this entire video is that you equate attacking feminism with attacking women.  Those things are not connected.  When people in the YouTube atheist sphere attack videos made by feminists, they are attacking the points that they make.  These aren’t people coming on video and saying, “Fuck you, you stupid cunts!  You should go back to the kitchen!”  While The Drunken Peasants Podcast is a humorous show, they do talk about the videos that they’re watching and the content within them.  TJ, Thunderf00t, The Armoured Skeptic (it’s so clear who he’s talking about.  He’s doing everything but naming names) have all made videos attacking the ideas of content creators that they don’t like, but it’s just that – the ideas that they espouse.  While some of them are indeed bad people, such as that black chick who hates all white people because we’re all terrible in her eyes or the con artist Anita Sarkeesian, we talk about the things they have to say.  That’s the point.  Steve is equating what everyone says with a grand statement about women and a hatred of them.

It’s telling that he never uses evidence.  Like video clips, for example?  That would be a good place to start.  Show some video evidence of all these people that you hate (because they are more liked and successful than you) hating women.  Could it be that you can’t?  Could it be that your attempts to do so would lead people to maybe seeing through your narrative?  There’s a reason that TJ and all the rest use video clips to prove their points.  That way people can’t say they are taking things out of context.  Funny how you can’t do the same.

It also has a racism problem

The level of transparency about who he is talking about is unbelievable.  I just wish he would come out and say it.  This has EVERYTHING to do with the recent video and the follow-ups to that video that TJ made about the questions that black people not of BuzzFeed had for white people.  That video blew up with people all over saying that it’s a sure sign that TJ is racist.  Why?  A couple of reasons.  First, because TJ said that gentrification isn’t a bad thing.  He said that he would much rather see nice buildings as opposed to a slum that is likely to have a higher crime rate than a not slum.  Never mind that that is what happens with gentrification.  They do actual good.  And it isn’t just black people displaced by it.  There have been plenty of trailer parks that get that treatment too.  As TJ rightly pointed out in a follow-up video, the problem isn’t gentrification, it’s the poverty that leads to that.  Groj forbid that we might want to do something about that.

Then there is the point that TJ made about how a large portion of the black community who is all about the BLM kind of activism are part of a victim cult.  He’s right, Steve!  The response that Martin Hughes made to him proved him absolutely right.  You have black people in wealthy universities telling people in trailer parks that they have power and privilege over them.  You have people trading on whatever victim points they possibly can in order to capitalize on victimhood points.  It’s a currency in the First World now, and that is complete bullshit.  Pointing out that these people in-particular have a victim complex is not making a statement against all black people.  You keep extrapolating between a group and the whole.  It can’t just be TJ talking about certain people.  No, he has to be hating on all black people.  The implication of all of this is that TJ would feel just at home palling around with skinheads and white nationalists.  A notion so stupid and insulting that you might as well just call him a Nazi and get it over with.

It has a religious bigotry problem, too

When Martin Hughes did his first diatribe in Patheos, he came out and said that he wished that he could just turn in his atheism card and go back to church.  Someone I held among kindred intellects recently went the distance and did it.  I wish Steve would just come out with the same.  Here he again makes the logical fallacy that anytime we insult one element of a religion, we are insulting all of it.  Taking the talking points that Islam is a race or a culture.  It’s not.  It’s a religion, Steve.  We are attacking that religion for the stupid things that it espouses.

He then goes back in time to when the YouTube atheism sphere was starting out and how we had made attack videos on some of the more low-hanging fruit of the day.  The likes of Venom Fang X or ShockofGod.  Yeah, Steve.  We did that.  It was good times.  Back before all of this SJW bullshit when we could come together and stand as one.  Remember those days?  Oh, right, you weren’t around.  In fact, most who were around aren’t anymore.  There are so many names that are gone from that list.  Names like Rational Warrior, King Heathen, Mr. Filthy Rags, and countless others.  Again, the argument is made that it was nothing but just horrendous attack without any regard for the feelings of those we were just insulting.  Because it’s nothing but bigotry.  Let’s forget that users like Venom Fang X truly did ask for it when they went out of their way to bait people.  Kind of like what you’re doing now, Steve!  Baiting people!  It’s all you can do to keep your channel afloat.  You know that a video like this will get people to make responses, which in turn will get people watching your videos.  It’s all so blunt, but you won’t admit it.  You’re dick-riding, Steve.  So pathetic.

It’s addicted to drama and conflict

Well, yeah.  Sure.  There is a lot of talk of drama in the YouTube atheism sphere.  Why?  Because it gets clicks.  I guarantee, the pwnage videos of Venom Fang X got a lot of clicks.  Debunking videos were always fun to watch.  People wanted to be entertained.  Seeing personalities we like attacking the ideas of people that we do not like is enjoyable.  But again, they weren’t going after the people just because they were there.  It was also about attacking their ideas.  We wanted to make mockery of what they believe, which in turn would make one of them.  That was an incidental result of the mockery, Steve, not the cause of it.  I don’t make posts attacking Anita Sarkeesian just because.  I do it because something that that con artist has said is stupid enough for me to make sport of.  I didn’t go after Milo Stewart because she’s a transtrender punk who feels the need to tell me how I feel.  I went after her because I think her ideas are stupid and I think the way she sees the world is telling in respect to her personality.

Response videos are as old as YouTube itself.  The biggest irony is that you are currently engaged in piggy-backing off the drama culture in order to prop yourself up!  You’re hemorrhaging subs, Steve!  People don’t like you anymore.  This is all you can do to bring in those all-important clicks.  The whole reason I am doing this post is connected to that, but we’ll get to that when we get there.

It reflects poorly on the atheist movement

There is no such thing, Steve!  That does not exist!  For a time, it did.  There was a while there that YouTube atheism was coalescing into a larger movement.  Then Atheism + had to stick their ugly head into things and the community that could have been was torn right down the middle.  Those days are gone, Steve. Take a look at the last Reason Rally and tell me that it’s not.  People who were there said that they got 1,000 people to attend.  If that.  There is no atheist community anymore.  It’s gone.  You and yours have a good part of that because we were too busy fighting with each other and it got to the point that everything that was built up died.  The irony is that then Atheism + died, and now the community hasn’t come back.  People moved on.  Because it’s no longer about atheism.  Now the battle is against a larger enemy who has also moved on – the SJWs.  Your ilk has redrawn battle lines that existed since the early days of YouTube and now have conservative Christians allying with atheist liberals to attack a perceived greater threat.  In a way, Steve, you and yours should feel proud.  You took something with potential and destroyed it.  Nice work.

Then we get to the end, and the truth of all this is fully revealed.  It’s all in that last diatribe about how much YouTube atheists are “assholes” and you getting so angry about it.  In that last sentence, the look on your face is such pure, white-hot rage.  Which brings me to my point in this post – it’s time to stop this, Steve.  You need to calm your tits and walk away from this mess.  Your channel is doing terribly, and the whole reason it’s gotten here is because TJ had finally had enough and did a video that was hugely successful and where he used your own words to utterly destroy you.  Did it feel good, seeing TJ on the screen showing you for a would-be censor who would silence opposing points of view if you had the power?  I can already see you, sitting in that chair, fuming as TJ ripped apart how your channel is dying while he is on the cusp of getting over 1,000,000 subs.  I know for a fact that you hated that moment and it still burns you.  Even now.  But you need to stop this.

You did everything but name names in this video, because you know that if you had, it would have been slander.  You’ve defended Jenny McDermott in the past, and I’m just waiting until you get to the point that you are taking her method of keeping herself relevant and just making inflammatory statements about other content creators.  I see it coming, and you need to walk away, Steve.  Just step off and walk from this.  Go back into your echo-chamber and make more videos about SJW bullshit.  Because if you keep on this path, you will be at the levels of Jonathan McIntosh when it comes to pathetic.  Take a look at his Patreon and tell me I’m wrong.

Another Victim of Modern Feminism (A response to Steve Shives)

It’s almost sad how things went with this guy.  There are so many online personalities who have allowed their values systems or their inability to be objective ruin their entire careers.  That’s one thing that I have been trying desperately to avoid. Sorry I haven’t been posting much recently.  Not only has it been a little quiet, but I’ve been sick as well.  But now I’m back, I’m feeling spry, and I’m eager to get back in the world of talking about shit on the Internet.  Tomorrow I have a surprise for all of you.  Something that all of you have already partaken of, so none of you will really care about what I have to say.  Aren’t I versatile?  I’ll give you a hint, it involves the new Star Wars movie.  That I am certain all of you have already seen, so you won’t give two fucks what I have to say about it.  Well, I do what I do, and that’s how it goes.  My goal here is to write good things, and hopefully to entertain you.  No idea how I’m doing about that.  There isn’t a ratings system on here.  All I can do is hope for the best, and give you what I can.  This is my passion project, after all.

Back to the topic of this post, Steve Shives.  For those of you who have been under a rock or something, Steve Shives is part of the YouTube atheist community.  A very special part.  The EXTREME-left side that is radically social justice and radically anti-MRA.  Steve’s content used to be pretty alright.  Here’s a link to his channel.  Go watch his early stuff, then watch his later stuff.  It’s almost weird how drastic the change is.  The thing about what has happened with him is – the person that all of his ideology has made him into is not only destroying his identity, it is destroying his channel.

See, Steve didn’t just become part of the social justice echo chamber.  He became unfathomably angry and bitter about it.  This man has a pattern.  The pattern is that anyone who disagrees with him – MRA.  Without question, they are simply an MRA.  No analysis.  No looking at their points.  MRA.  That’s it.  You could question it, but his videos have ratings and comments disabled anyway. And Groj help you if you go on Twitter.  This man blocks ANYONE who gives him any amount of argumentation, no matter how civil they try and be. He won’t hear a single word of rebuttal to anything he says, and that has not made him many friends among a community that is argumentative by nature, but who also is getting tired of social justice infusing it and trying to tear it apart from the inside.

You’d think that this kind of person – hostile, bitter, dismissing, and social justice in the absolute extreme – is the kind of person I would despise.  But I don’t.  I really don’t.  Because the truth is that Steve is not this way because it was something he looked for.  There is a video on his channel where he is talking to his wife, and something becomes very clear – his wife owns his entire life.  She belittles everything he does.  His bookshelf?  Sexist.  His liking Angel over Buffy?  Sexist (I think they both suck, but that’s just me).  It was a video where he was doing everything he could to placate her and show that he supports her, while being belittled by her the entire time.  It is abundantly clear that this man is not happily married, and that he is with this woman for whatever reason, but is scared to death of the idea of losing her.  He will say whatever he possibly can in order to make her happy.  I don’t have a clue what kind of relationship dynamic they have, but I’ll tell you what it looked like to me in that video – abuse.  This woman is, in some way, abusing this man.  And he is clearly trapped in a marriage that is toxic, having to take up this man-hating woman’s ideological crusade in order to keep her happy.

I feel sorry for this guy.  He’s a victim, and his story is tragic.  Sure, he’s also an asshole, and he’s said some really stupid shit.  But go onto his channel and find that video.  Just listen to how he tries to say whatever he believes will make her happy, and tell me that that is not someone who is utterly defeated and just trying to keep the peace with someone who he genuinely doesn’t like being around.  He is miserable with this woman, but wants to hold it together for whatever reason.  And maybe he believes it.  Maybe he has finally convinced himself that this is right, because he is becoming more and more of a zealot every day.

This man’s inability to listen to any other perspectives and his blind refusal to talk to people is killing his channel.  It’s made him the laughing-stock of the YouTube atheist community.  It’s turned someone who used to have good content into someone who nobody can stand.  He was even in a straw poll about the Mangina of 2015.

Steve, if you find this, there are ways out.  For real, there are.  There ways out of abusive relationships, and you need to take one.  Get away from this person who is ruining your life, because when you have nothing left, when she sucks up the last of your identity that you give her to make her happy, then that’s it.  You won’t have anywhere else go to.  There will be nothing for you to do.  You can still turn this around.  For real, I believe you can.  I am not on here to make fun of you.  I am here to tell you that it’s okay to break free.  Don’t be part of that toxic sludge of hate in the dank ocean of YouTube stank.  There are resources to get free of abusive relationships.  It’s harder for men.  I get that.  I’ve had friends in those kinds of relationships.  But there are tools out there.  And if you ever want to talk, you can reach out to me.
