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 #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 […]

Manosphere Mondays #3: When To Avoid Commenting

Well, damn! Little late today, my friends, and I’m sorry about that–thought I uploaded this earlier yesterday, but it looks like I didn’t! Ah, well, least I’m only a day off XD For the third Manosphere Monday here…well, Tuesday, I’ll do the same thing I did last time: Offer a piece of advice that applies […]

Manosphere Mondays #1: Return of Kings and Manosphere Media Success

An entry on a Monday? What madness is this? It’s something new I wanted to try. See, once again some friends of mine were talking about a subject related to the “manosphere” (which I described here). It inspired me to jot down a quick post on the subject, but I don’t really want to spend […]

Why I’m Not a MGTOW

I was joking around about this subject a little while ago with some friends in a skype chat. Essentially, for about half an hour or so I was pretending to be a MGTOW for the lulz. After a while they thought I was being serious, so I finally stopped and told them I was just […]
