Basic Primer: How To Deal With Vitriol From Social Justice Warriors

In every comment section you can be thoroughly entertained Gladiator style. I often scroll through comments to get an idea of reader’s reactions to some of the magical pieces of brilliant journalism that are displayed at sites  … TRIGGER WARNING!!!!!

Nah, I’m joking… at sites such as Jezebel, Gawker, Kotaku, ect.   Fortunately there are some sites that present the other side of the issue – specifically on #Gamergate – such as The Ralph Retort.  To be fair, I find the comments agreeable because of my bias on the subject of #Gamergate.

Context To The Primer

Credit to ArsenicSundae for a comment that presents a very important basic primer on how to respond to Social Justice Warriors. Note that “apologizing” isn’t in there. In fact, NEVER do that.  Don’t back down.

When they come after you, tell ‘em to fuck themselves, because all they need is for you to engage them on their terms, which gives them an opening they can exploit.

When you’re willing to “discuss” something with them, it lends credence to their accusations and the next thing you know, you’re owning that shit.

This is an extremely important point because if you respond and try to defend yourself from  the common accusations that you are a sexist, misogynist, racist, ect you have already essentially admitted assumed guilt.  Your response validates their accusations – no matter how false and full of shit said accusations are.

Thousands of tweets later you have now become guilty.  Take Bill Frezza’s article on Forbes, “Drunk Female Guests Are The Gravest Threat To Fraternities.” which was eventually axed thanks to the tolerance views of SJWs on differing viewpoints.  He made the mistake of apologizing on his blog validating the claims of the lynch mob.

What lesson can we learn here? You don’t attempt rational discourse with people who have no interest in it.  They simply would rather attempt to vilify you with labels in the court of public opinion then have an open and honest dialogue with you.  Don’t waste your time by giving them time and most specifically ATTENTION.

The proper response to SJW’s involves dismissing their claims outright and immediately. Eventually labels like misogynist, racist, sexist, ect won’t mean anything because will rightfully not take them seriously after seeing that others aren’t taking them seriously either.

Primer 101:  SJW Accusations & Responses

Familiarize yourself with the usual responses – most notably that of the recent Matt Taylor whose “sexist” shirt trumped his accomplishment of helping to land a machine on a moving comet.   He went even went one step further and cried in his apology.

Yea, it still hurts me to think about that.  Remember bullying is bad, unless you are bullying a grown man into crying over his shirt choice.   What should Taylor have done? Observe the following:

Examples of poor responses to SJW harassment:

“That’s not what I meant.”
“Let me explain.”
“You’re twisting my words.”
“I apologize.”

We are all used to these. Now for the retorts?

Examples of good responses to SJW harassment:

“Fuck you.”
“Go fuck yourself.”
“Get fucked, you syphilitic little prick.”
“To anyone offended by my words or actions, I’m deeply … naw, fuck it … you can all kiss my ass. Thank you.”

Yea, these responses look extreme. But you have to take extreme actions – specifically in concern to your responses when you are dealing with potential extreme SJW’s mobs.  Your livelihood may actually depend on it in it.

New Logic: Why Skinny Shaming Isn’t Reverse Discrimination

Skinny Shaming Isn’t As Harmful as Fat Shaming Because Equality. 

Confused? Me too. Another day in the femsphere and another confounded look on my face.  If you are skinny, prepare to enjoy yet another slap upon the usual skinny slaps for daring to take care of your body.  I have a skinny but fit body, so I’m already checking my privilege as I take my lumps.

I stumbled upon this article on my newsfeed and since I don’t completely immerse myself just in my own preferred bubble of thoughts, I made sure to read though it.  Of course, it confirms my pessimism even more in our “Western” society.  Here are some choice quotes:

“You can’t oppress the people who have social power. That’s not how it works.”

This “logic” astounds me. Really?  If 40 Christians in Syria beat the ever-loving shit out an Arab on the street it still is oppression.

And sometimes, justice looks unfair.

If it looks unfair, it’s probably not justice.

Sometimes it looks like people are getting special treatment. But because they wouldn’t need that special treatment if equality existed, what it really is, is a leveling out of the playing field.

This is the same kind of logic with affirmative action and racial quotas. You need to use discriminatory methods to fight previous discrimination and rectify it’s effects – except it never seems to work and exacerbates the already polar racial climate that exists in the U.S.  The playing field will NEVER be leveled out if you keep un-leveling parts of it to level the other parts.

Oppression is oppression. It doesn’t change regardless of who engage is it. There are no free passes.  Discrimination is Discrimination.  You can’t simply jump through special hoops to make it okay when you do it, but not when others do.

Atheism, Self-Hedonism, and Shintoism help us.

Did Anita Sarkeesian Publicly Accuse All Men and Boys Of Being Potential Murderers?

Youtube Atheist spokesperson, The Amazing Atheist – love him or hate him – released a video which was guest hosted by Mr. Repzion. Let’s go back a week and half.  It appears Anita Sarkeesian is again in the center of the spotlight of controversy courtesy of twitter.

It doesn’t take a genius to notice that Sarkeesian – a fellow Armenian – is  using a time tested political tactic: appropriating a very tragic school shooting for her own purposes.  Her narrative seems straight to the point that based on her twitter. She assumes that the concept of masculinity – the idea of being a man – is indeed ALWAYS toxic to the point of mass shootings.  Perhaps I’m mistaken, but that seems to take exploitation of a tragedy to a new degree.

Somehow I get the feeling that Sarkeesian doesn’t see anything good about the concept of masculinity and that it is never separate from its “toxic” nature.  Luckily for myself, I’m used to being dehumanized by feminists.  Unfortunately, many males however are not. Look at the next generation of young boys who are being bombarded by the idea that everything they do is toxic both culturally, in social media, and in the schools.

  • Tag
  • Playing war by using their hands as guns
  • Sword fighting with sticks
  • Dodgeball
  • Being curious about girls
  • Not wanting to sit in a chair for hour straight
  • Wanting to play more physical during recess – assuming they get one.

So what does “Toxic Masculinity” mean? Essentially toxic masculinity is anything that feminists don’t like about men and believe they should change.

Disagree with a feminist? Toxic masculinity. 
Don’t find a woman attractive and therefore don’t want to date them? Toxic masculinity.
Practice true equality by not offering to open the door, pull out the chair, and refusing to offer to pay for dinner? Toxic Masculinity.
Enjoy MMA, the UFC, and anything of a physical nature? Toxic Masculinity.

You get the idea. I hope the next generation of boys can survive considering that having a pair of testicles is now an immediate indictment of toxic masculinity.

Improving Your Situation Always Starts With You.

On my WP feed, an important post was made on a blog I follow called , “A Holistic Journey“. The blogger, alohaleya, recently wrote a post, My Fiction Put Me In Debt, in which she talks about the effects of resentment in her life toward her father as well as feeling shame for holding others responsible.

What specifically caught my attention was the following:

“I’m the one who’s chosen to interpret my life events as I have. I’m the one who’s assigned deep meaning to old memories…and this meaning no longer serves. For years, I viewed my dad in a certain way because I’d trained myself to see only what supported my stories.

Often we get stuck in this kind of rut that resembles our own personal bubble which we alone shape.  We end up forming a narrative that specifically is based off what we allow ourselves to focus on.  This isn’t something to be judged for as much as its just a fact of life for every individual.  What alohaleya did here is to recognize it. The sooner we recognize this, the sooner we can actually attempt to take control of our lives.

“But I am ashamed of how I’ve held others responsible for the situations I’ve created. I’m now seeing the power I have to choose and to create differently.”

For those of us willing to admit it, we have all gone through this.  I have realized something however; it’s important to take responsibility for the situations we are in, because even if we can lay the blame 100% squarely on the shoulders of someone else – even if they are completely fault – you are still in that nasty situation regardless of who is at blame.”

It doesn’t magically get better or go away, even if we feel better if someone else takes the “blame”.   Our society – particularly in America – teaches us to blame someone else and use that blame to appeal to others for help.  In other words, you are forced to depend on others to make your life better.  Will doing that actually improve the situation that you are in? (Not just financially, but your life in general?)

I find her post inspirational.  Life is short. Very short. I came across the story of Lauren Hill, a girl whose dream to play basketball, will ultimately be ended by her brain cancer which gives her only a few weeks to live.  Put yourself in a situation where you only have a few weeks to live. Would you hold on to the problems of the past? Or move on to the future?  Stay strong alohaleya and keep growing.

A White Woman Walks Through A White Part Of Town And Gets No Catcalls

Nothing much happens besides a few head turns by men as she walks past them. I suppose a deranged feminist would use that as evidence of eye harassment. Dem man eyes boring holes through women’s souls… eye rape!

The first interesting reaction starts at 0:25, when she struts past a construction site. Two brown men stare at her for a while, but say nothing. It’s hard to tell if they’re very tanned white men, or nonwhite laborers; nevertheless, the scene is reminiscent of the CH observation that the colorful excesses of “diversity”, whether of the race or class variety, tend to be kept…

Why Voting 3rd Party Can Change History: The Election of 1924

I often browse the blog of economist and author Aaron Daley who goes by the name, Captain Capitalism for his blog.  His post, Conservative Idiots Who “Protest the Vote” about this upcoming election got me thinking and I believe is missing an important lesson from history.

History – for those of us who actually read it instead of watching Netflix – however has an IMPORTANT lesson for us.  Voting 3rd party can push a main party in a specific direction. Don’t believe me?  Take for example the presidential election of 1924.   Calvin Coolidge crushed his main democratic opponent, but his election win helped reveal a noticeable split had occurred in the democratic party.

The democrat nominee for president was John Davis.  During the election, he was considered by the growing progressive movement of the time to be too conservative.  Just think about that.  One only wonders what being considered too conservative by the Democrat party meant back then. Note the populist influence on progressives of the early 20th century.

The progressives that usually supported the democrat party – even though it didn’t exactly completely and utterly yet emanate their views – bolted from the party in protest and voted in favor of the 3rd party progressive candidate Robert M. La Follette from Wisconsin.  This represented a deep fragmentation in the party that had finally manifested on a national level of impact.

The Election of 1924

It was a landslide election, particularly in the electoral votes for Coolidge. However, the popular vote totals are very important.

1.  Calvin Coolidge receives 15,723,789 of the popular vote thus 54% of it.

2. John W. Davis receives 8,386,242 of the popular vote thus 28.8% of it.

3.  Robert M. La Follette receives 4,831,706 of the popular vote thus 16.6% of it.

The end result of the 1924 election for the democrat party is that the party embraced the ideal of the progressives on their party plank and the party was forever changed.  The party had secured the future votes of Progressives, but the conservative element of the party would move into a decline that is evident of the party today.

As a pessimistic libertarian, imagine if the Libertarian party cost the republicans 16% of the popular vote in a presidential election.  Yes, the “evil” Democrats would have even more of a free reign to destroy our lives than they usually do, but the Republican Party would have to change its positions if it wanted to again be a party capable of winning major elections.

We Need A System Implosion

Honestly, the Republican party is in trouble. It has been for some time just due to simple demographics. It needs to change, and it needs to change now if it wants to slow the decline.  Perhaps a widespread deviation from the party by libertarian voters who are usually forced to pick between the best of two evils is taser to the nipples that the party needs.

Even if it doesn’t work in this hypothetical future situation- even though history has shown its worked in the past – the decline of the country will happen even faster.  I’ve always been leaning toward the conclusion that the country is doomed. As Stephan Molyneux has one said, “The experiment in limited government has been a failure.”

I  am now to the point where I strongly believe the system can’t be saved.  It needs to implode and restart. We need to let the car wreck of today happen instead of pushing it off with “The Republican Party” of the trainwreck of 50 years from now.  Either it’s gonna hurt now,

Reading through Aaron Clarey’s (Captain Capitalism) book on the incoming decline of the country has re-affirmed and reinforced my conclusion. It is because of his views on the country’s future as a whole that I find it confusing as to why he wants to delay socialism or simply setback the incoming trainwreck.  I’d much rather have it happen now.  (Granted I’m newly only 26, single, and have no kids.)

Now you can still be pessimistic, but you still get everything back from our robbing thieving government and enjoy life and the decline as it happens. If they are going to rob you, its time to use the welfare system to rob them back. I highly suggest Aaron Clareys: Enjoy the Decline: Accepting and Living with the Death of the United States.  Note the very conservative viewpoint of the book, but economics and our massive bureaucracy doesn’t lie.  You can’t sustain a system in which there are more people who don’t work vs those that do.

Cheers to all my fellow vagrants.

5 Ways To Eat Healthy and Cheap on The Run

I live like a homeless person.  I can sometimes grab food when I stay at my friends house or at my parents, but often I end up sleeping in my car to save gas.    This means that the free cheap meals can be hard to attain.

One of the biggest expenses that I, many college students, and many of my friends have in general is eating out.  Unfortunately that usually includes crappy fast food which you know is bad for you, but you don’t have the time to cook a meal.   Welcome to my world.

Well it’s time to stop cramming those Mcdoubles down you mouth and save yourself some money – while eating some cheap healthy food of course that will help you lose that weight destroying your self-esteem.

1. Stop at a Jewel, Marianos, Walmart, ect and pick up some fruit.  You can also often get baby carrots for dirt cheap.  Bananas and Apples are your close friends.  Ideally, you want to focus on produce that you can eat while you drive.

2. You can stop at places like Dollar General, Family Dollar, ect and get nuts.  Avoid the roasted and heavily salted nuts if possible. Almonds, peanuts, and cashews make very good sources of protein that will help fill you up.

3. DRINK MORE WATER.  It’s a known fact that water not only will decrease your appetite and thus your desire to eat food, but it’s very important to your overall diet.  Something like 70% of American’s are dehydrated.  That’s bad, M’kay?

4. Don’t buy food at gas stations if possible. If you have no choice, settle for nuts of some kind.  They will at least fill you up.  Also, refrain from drinking soda. It will dehydrate you and its no secret that its actually bad for you.

5. Avoid fast food like the plague. It often won’t fill you up – your body knows – and its that consistent dollar here and there that start to add up to that 100$+ a month spent on crappy food. Don’t be that person.

I can not strain this enough: Places like Dollar Tree and Dollar general are your friends as they will allow you to attain nuts for a cheap price providing your source of protein.   You could easily drop about 10$ and have enough nuts to hold you over for the week – assuming you throw some fruits and basic veggies into the mix.  Trader Joes is known to have one pound bags for about 2$.    Simply stop at a grocery store for the rest and you have your apples, pears, plums, bananas, and baby carrots for easily under 20$ that can last you the rest of the week.

One of the key ways to losing weight it so simply eat less – something that you can accomplish without starving yourself to death. You can reduce your overall appetite through carefully eating small meals – an apple here and some nuts there – over the course of the day.

Eat cheap and well my friends.

Is Chris Kluwe bullying people through lawsuits?

One way to shut someone up is to either scare them with the threat of a lawsuit or just actually sue them. It appears Chris Kluwe understands this, but this time he isn’t picking on his former NFL team, but rather on a mansophere entrepreneur and lawyer, Mike Cernovich, from Danger & Play with the “defamation” card this time.

Beware. He has millions to make sure you are reduced to pennies.

While usually these tactics are employed by angry businesses and corporations on yelp against anonymous users for negative reviews, you can apparently go after people for their tweets on twitter as well.  This is probably just one more reason why you might want to consider anonymity on most social networks.

For the common man and the poor this usually spells doom – all kinds of impending doom. Even if you win or successfully defend yourself in court, your finances are going to be in trouble. It’s like going through a divorce where you lose all of your “stuff” no matter if your wife takes the house or not, because she’s also taking your beer fridge.

Take note of this tactic however.  Mike Cernovich has a legal background which means he won’t need to hire lawyers to defend him, but his valuable time will still be wasted. The rest of us however can’t afford lawyers. Be VERY careful as to exactly what you say about certain people. Check all your bases and make sure you can’t be accused of libel, slander, and defamation.

Anything can be subjectively interpreted as harassment a.k.a. “defamation” so bullies like Chris Kluwe need to be called out for actions like this.  Hold him accountable for this kind of financial oppression and censorship as it could happen to any of us who don’t have Kluwe’s millions to fight a legal battle. Stay strong Mike.

Life Lessons: Angry Conversations With a Stranger On A Train with Unexpected Twists.

Hopping on the train at the Lake Forest stop, I grabbed a seat on the upper deck, put the other two down near me, and proceeded to lay down and glance up at my phone as I browsed through reddit headphones playing music in my ear.

Sounds. It looks like the guy across is talking to me. Is he? Yes, he is.  I take out my headphones and he wants to know if I’m okay as I was coughing while laying down.  He mentions that, “I’ve seen people die on this train.”  I assure him I’m fine and I go back to Reddit.

15 minutes later I notice he is saying something again. I take out my headphones to hear him. This time he seemed VERY agitated about the way I was sitting. Apparently he thought I might be taking pictures of him with my phone and he was upset by the way I was laying down.

Again, apparently I was being rude and I semi-open dangling legs were exposing my crotch to the Indian girl sitting several seats down. It was then that I realized I had been targeted. I sat up and attempted to deflect the verbal attacks.

The conclusions and assumptions made about me took me back for a second. Apparently I was some punk from Chicago coming down here to get off at Libertyville and I didn’t give a fuck about the other people on the train. I pointed out to him that NO ONE has ever objected to the way I’ve laid down before. He was the first one.  He insists its a matter of being respectful.  I proceeded to question him on how he knew what was “Respectful.”  He appealed to the way he was raised.

I started trying to think to myself about why he was giving me such a hard time. It was a serious, “Dude, wtf?” moment of thought.  For a bit longer, I suspected that other people were going to become involved as his tone of voice kept getting louder. (I was hoping the conductors weren’t going to get involved.)

It was here the conversation turned.  I pointed out to him I lived in Fox Lake, I also told him about how I thought his age had nothing to do with whether I respected his opinions or not. I also essentially asked him indirectly what was bugging him. Conversations are something I live for. They break up the routine of my day. I made the most out of this one and I’m glad I did.

This fellow’s name was Jim. I plied Jim and found out some back-story about himself.  He’s a 53 year old micro-biologist who works his ass off to put his two of his three daughters through college.  He’s struggling financially, but fishing with his buddies gives him some reprieve.  I felt a kind of kinship for Jim.  It’s no accident that I feel as I’ve met people just like him before with a similar frustration with life.  A sympathy for him wells up inside me.

He apologized several times to me later and throughout the conversations for his initial assumptions about myself, but I told him not to worry about it.  “The past is the past,” I told him.  Jim you see is a classic example of a guy going on through life who needs a chance to vent every once in a while, but doesn’t.  It was the small action of the way I laid that set him off.

I literally told him when we got off the train, “There’s only so much a man can handle before he explodes.”   Jim is a good guy, but he’s been through alot. He is rightfully distrustful of new and strange people. He tells me stories about how he’s been attacked and beat up in Fox Lake and the kind of crime he see’s happening right outside the Fox Lake train station and the Thortons.

Every story and conversation has a life lesson that should ALWAYS be learned from it.   What happened to Jim – just one action- that magnifies to a great extent the rest of what he has been feeling and seeing can happen to myself.

All men out there need a time and a chance to vent.  The key is doing it in a way that won’t get you arrested, hated, ect but to find a friend and/or an outlet to really get things off your chest.  Reddit is one way, but face-to-face with a close friends is the best.  Get it off your chest. It will make you feel better.

We all have pent up rage that builds. It’s a matter of fact of life. The people who explode are some how seen as terrible, immature, ect but the reality of life is that this is just a natural part of humanity.  Let it go. Don’t be afraid to tell your friends what’s really on your mind.  Be yourself and I’m not saying that in a BS “feel good” cultural way.

Before we parted ways at the station, Jim told me he was glad the conversation happened. I was too.  It was a raw unfiltered and genuine conversation that should happen more often.

Armenia.
