Analysis: Why MGTOW attracts so many scammers and sleazebags

Hey, everybody. It’s been a while since I did a “manosphere” post, but I had some conversations with a couple folks a little while ago and turned them into an essay, x-posted to some places on Reddit. I rather like it, so here you go: A little while ago I was talking to someone about […]

Manosphere Mondays #7: An Irony of the Manosphere

It’s been a while, but inspired by discussions I’ve been having with some friends of mine, I thought I’d offer a quick bit of manosphere-related silliness for you today, loyal readers. I’ll be briefly talking about a concept the manosphere (and the alt-right in general, for that matter) is so fond of: “The Red Pill.” […]

Why I Don’t Fear Elliot Rodgers, and What We Should Have Done About Him

The manospherians/misogynists have been going full damage control in the wake of the Isla Vista shootings. They’ve been trying pretty hard to punt him out of their camp. I can’t say I entirely blame them. No-one wants to be associated with lunatics, regardless of whether or not they actually are. But the really weird thing […]

Misogyny and Misandry

This entry will be the second-to-last of my Elliot Rodgers/misogyny series. After the next one, I’m gonna stay away from gender-related topics for a while, I’m already getting sick of ‘em. But here, I’ll be a little more positive…to start with, at least. I want to talk about something I read in a buddy’s blog […]

The Futility of Appeasement

A quick look at a fairly distasteful subject today, my friends. A lot of people who, if not part of the “manosphere,” seem sympathetic to it, are claiming Elliot’s rampage wouldn’t have happened if the “sexual marketplace” wasn’t so horribly “oppressive” for guys like him. Roosh V made this very argument; you can read a […]

Giving Up on Misogyny

I’m not particularly fond of talking about the manosphere on this blog, or speaking on its related ideas and concepts, of which misogyny is one. It can be an interesting exercise on occasion, but I had believed it unwise to spend too much time and energy on such matters. That’s why I only posted about […]

Manosphere Mondays #6: Book Recommendation

Haven’t caught much manosphere/MGTOW stuff recently that really interested me, but I do have a book recommendation for y’all that’s related to some manosphere issues. It’s “Freedom Is Not Enough: The Moynihan Report and America’s Struggle over Black Family Life–from LBJ to Obama” by James T. Patterson. I might do a full book review later, […]

Manosphere Mondays #5: Some of my favorite quotes

On a trip at the moment and a bit busy, my friends, so this Manosphere Monday’s gonna be pretty quick. Here’s a collection of amusing quotes I’ve gathered from all across the Internet which capture most of my feelings about the whole manosphere/MGTOW scene. Some of them are from 4chan’s /r9k/ and /pol/ boards, which […]

Manosphere Mondays #4: Herbivores and MGTOW

Hot on the heels of my recent book review, I’d like to spend this “Manosphere Monday” expanding on the fourth essay there. Specifically, I’ll be detailing the differences between Japanese “Herbivorous Men” and the MGTOWs I’ve described before. Why is this important? Because the MGTOWs seem to have latched on to the herbivores. To be […]

Avoid Miserable People

It’s the second Manosphere Monday here on this blog, albeit somewhat late (today is the first Monday of January, but it’s close to 11:30 PM where I am). Perhaps the heading is a bit misleading, though—the piece of advice I’d like to give today is relevant not only to the Manosphere, but life in general, […]
