I Tried to Be a Misogynist (Full Essay)

I Tried to Be a Misogynist OR Coughing Up The Red Pill By Gunlord500 This is a really long essay, though thankfully not as long as its first draft would have been. I’ve broken it into 4 much more digestible sections, though, that should be easier to read if one huge document is too much: […]

I Tried To Be A Misogynist (Part IV-Conclusion)

Continued from https://gunlord500.wordpress.com/2021/07/30/i-tried-to-be-a-misogynist-part-iii/ IV: Broad Experience Brought Me Out of the Manosphere Still, I’d be lying, and certainly underselling many good friends of mine, if I said that manospherians were the only ones encouraging me to get out of that scene. It’s definitely pretty convincing that so many manospambots themselves saw the bankruptcy of their […]

I Tried To Be A Misogynist (Part III)

Continued from https://gunlord500.wordpress.com/2021/07/30/i-tried-to-be-a-misogynist-part-ii/ III: The Manosphere Defeats Itself A: The more a man wins, the more he likes feminism I’ll start with my personal experience—don’t worry, I won’t bellyache a lot, I’ll just briefly recap a few things I already mentioned earlier in this essay. A core tenet of MGTOW, at least, is that you […]

I Tried To Be A Misogynist (Part II)

Continued from https://gunlord500.wordpress.com/2021/07/30/i-tried-to-be-a-misogynist-part-i/ II: Ideological Inconsistency Now, I suppose a few manospambots, if they ever find this entry, might complain that so far I’ve done a lot of mocking of manospherians themselves, but haven’t said anything against what they actually believe. Even if manospambots are a bunch of inveterate losers, isn’t it possible that their […]

I Tried To Be A Misogynist (Part I)

I Tried to Be a Misogynist OR Coughing Up The Red Pill By Gunlord500 I took way too long in writing this essay. It’s been on the back burner for a few years, and when I finally looked at it again, I found it a very good idea to shorten it considerably, and not just […]

It’s all in the (world) mystery

Of all the media I’ve consumed, all the books and comics/manga I’ve read over the years (and it’s a whole lot) I can think of only two I’ve consistently come back to, time and time again, for near or over a decade. I love plenty of series and manga, of course–Parasyte, Ogre Battle, plenty of […]

My haul from the Memorial Day sale!

It was the memorial day sale at Best Buy earlier this week, so I gotta coupla nice things: 1st, a new Honeywell tower fan! This is the Honeywell Quiet Set HYF290B Whole Room Fan, and it is REALLY good, I’ve never had anything so luxurious before. It’s much more stable than my old crappy fan, […]

Intuitions for me but not for thee (Anti-Thomist tidbits)

Gunlord here, back again with a (somewhat) meatier entry for you today, my friends. We’re back to philosophy, judging questions of good and evil, and relating to my erstwhile foes, the Thomists–though in this case, the subject under discussion is an internet chat I participate in rather than any famous intellectuals like Edward Feser or […]

Thank you, Professor Miura

I don’t quite know how to start an entry like this. But I guess there’s noplace else to start than with the news. Kentaro Miura, author of Berserk, one of my very favorite manga–and objectively one of the most influential contemporary manga, period–has passed away. 【三浦建太郎先生 ご逝去の報】『ベルセルク』の作者である三浦建太郎先生が、2021年5月6日、急性大動脈解離のため、ご逝去されました。三浦先生の画業に最大の敬意と感謝を表しますとともに、心よりご冥福をお祈りいたします。2021年5月20日 株式会社白泉社 ヤングアニマル編集部 pic.twitter.com/baBBo4J2kL — ベルセルク公式ツイッター (@berserk_project) May 20, 2021 https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2021-05-19/berserk-manga-creator-kentarou-miura-passes-away-at-54/.172988 There’s […]

A Useful Upton Sinclair Quote for the Manosphere

Been a long, long time since I’ve written a manosphere entry, my friends. I haven’t felt the need to in quite a while, partially because the manosphere itself seems pretty dead these days–a subject likely worth a post of its own. But on a whim I looked at one of the few “old-school” manospambot sites […]
