Wow, at both Reddit actually cracking down on misogyny and just how brazenly depraved a circlejerk can get if you let it go long enough.

Ugly and terrible. If you will excuse me veering far off topic, imagine a country where there are significantly more men than women and even greater income disparity. I really believe that the PRC is headed towards a great level of social disorder fueled by rural poor who are unable to get girlfriends and wives because more wealthy city-dwellers have scooped up the women and taken them to the city.

Given that GamerGate, which many credit for aiding and abetting the rise of the neo-Nazi alt-right, was literally started when Zoë Quinn’s whiny sex-starved ex-boyfriend wrote a 9,000 word manifesto about getting dumped, there’s no underestimating how scary some guys get when they can’t get laid.

Why did they use the handle r/Incels? was r/butthurtbros already taken??


#10

Thank god for Jim Sterling


#12

You seriously think this guy had something like Gamergate in mind when he wrote his letter?


#13

By no means do I think he planned Gamergate out when pouring his soul into an angry manifesto about his ex-girlfriend and their crumbling relationship. But he most certainly took an active hand in the targeted harassment that it inspired and has been quite cheery about what GG became.


#14

Nice try but no. I want nothing whatsoever to do with the Cervonovich crowd. This doesn’t make the original issue go away.


#15

Man, I wonder why they can’t get laid.


#16

Not fooling anyone posting to 4chan.


#17

Sorry, could you link to ‘all those amazing reviews for those “games” your ex published’? I can’t seem to find them.


#18

Toxic masculinity has so many sub-genres, but they all come back to the same place: a self-pitying loser who thinks he’s entitled (by the terms of some “free” market of human relationships) to get laid and/or have a new mommy to clean up after him.


#19

Well, you seem to have an uncredited screengrab of someone making the same assertion as you. I stand corrected.


#21

You posted a standard wall of gamergate half-truths and outright lies in the plain service of diddums for one man’s sexual entitlement to a woman who did not want him. Then you ignored a request for receipts on these mythical reviews, always posed as her motive. And now you seem to have a problem with “uncredited” postings of Gjoni’s own words.

Whatever you’re trying to do, I don’t think you’re doing very well at it?

Wow, it’s like Gators can’t be assed to even try to justify their hate.


#23

The smarter ones all moved on to Trump. Which is amazing, when you think about it.


#24

Thanks for that. Hilarious and terrifying.
