Gunlord’s College Saga, The End: It really wasn’t worth it, but I did get something out of it, at least…

Welp, today was the very last day of classes I’ll ever have to take (hopefully) again. All that’s left is the actual graduation,and I probably won’t go, I hate those things and I’ll just ask them to mail my diploma to me. All in all, as usual for a lotta things in my life, the […]

Jotting down some quick ethics notes

Random small essaylet I cam up with after a discussion on Twitter, putting it here for my own reference. In a recent discussion with someone defending the concept of good as fulfilling a function, the other party agreed with me that something can only be said to have a function at all if it’s part […]

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 […]
