Tyler Cowen, a professor at George Mason University, recently interviewed Peter Thiel, the founder of PayPal and investor in Facebook.  Here is an excerpt from that interview where Thiel talks about Aspergers being important for innovation and the problems of conformity:

TYLER COWEN: Let me give you my take on how I’ve tried to fit different parts of your thought together. And again, for all you listeners, this doesn’t have to be true. It’s just my mental model of Peter Thiel. That you’re one of a lot of thinkers who takes the idea of original sin — it doesn’t have to be a theological commitment — seriously. Tocqueville wrote in the 19th century that America eventually would evolve to be a land of complacent people who were going to stop believing in original sin and stick to a kind of conformist mediocrity.

So you have taken this to heart. The world out there is deeply weird. Even though there appears to be free entry into ideas production, because of René Girard–like ideas, the people who deviate, someone comes down on them pretty hard. So there’s excess conformity, the original sin in people’s motives gets magnified at the social level. So basically, there are distortions out there. And everything we can see, it’s a gnostic theology, and a relatively small number of people who can see through those distortions can be great entrepreneurs, or can tell the truth about politics.

And it’s all ultimately some kind of bundled, implicitly theological, but not necessarily involving belief in God, but theological perspective about the nature of people. And it ends up spreading to all the different parts of society and that, to me, has been what ties your thought together. But that’s a hypothesis; let’s hear your reaction to that.

PETER THIEL: Let’s see. I think the way original sin normally works is that it resides in individuals, in one way or another. And so theologically, I would place it much more in society. And so I think society is both something that’s very real and very powerful, but on the whole quite problematic. We always run the risk of losing sight of that.

I don’t know if it’s strictly the awareness of it that solves it. Certainly, there probably are some people who are just vaguely oblivious to it, so in Silicon Valley, I point out that many of the more successful entrepreneurs seem to be suffering from a mild form of Asperger’s where it’s like you’re missing the imitation, socialization gene.

TYLER COWEN: And that’s a plus, right?

PETER THIEL: It happens to be a plus for innovation, and creating great companies, but I think we always should turn this around as an incredible critique of our society. We need to ask, what is it about our society where those of us who do not suffer from Asperger’s are at some massive disadvantage because we will be talked out of our interesting, original, creative ideas before they are even fully formed?

We’ll notice that’s a little bit too weird, that’s a little bit too strange. Maybe I’ll just go ahead and open the restaurant that I’ve been talking about, that everyone else can understand and agree with, or do something extremely safe and conventional, and therefore hypercompetitive, and probably not that great as an idea.

I’d say a lot of these people may not understand this larger theory about society, but they are somewhat oblivious to it, and it pushes progress. Now, certainly my own experience would have been a little bit more where — I grew up in Northern California. It was this hyper-tracked process, where my eighth grade junior high school yearbook, one of my friends wrote in, “I know you’re going to get into Stanford in four years.”

Four years later I got into Stanford, then I got into Stanford Law School. You won all the conventionally tracked competitions; you ended up at a big law firm in Manhattan. From the outside, it was a place where everybody wanted to get in. On the inside, it was a place where everybody wanted to get out.

You ask one of the people down the hall from me, said that it was great to see me leave. I left after seven months and three days, it was great to see me leave. It was like “I had no idea it was possible to escape from Alcatraz.”

TYLER COWEN: What did you learn there?

PETER THIEL: I learned that I was incredibly prone to this problem of social convention. If you want to give it a religious terminology, the psychological terminology would be that I had a rolling quarter life crisis in my mid-20s. The religious terminology, I had a quasi-conversion experience where I realized the value system was deeply corrupt and needed to be questioned.

I do think that one of the ways of challenging convention, one way, the Asperger’s way, is just to be vaguely oblivious to it all, and continue apace. Then I think there is another modality where you just become aware of how conventional our conventions really are, and then that becomes sort of an indirect route of trying to start thinking for yourself.

TYLER COWEN: In your view, perhaps the contemporary world is becoming, I don’t know what the word would be, stranger, or weirder, or more shaped by individuals who are different, precisely because conformity is being piled on other places. So if the movers and shakers would be people who are in some way neuro diverse, then overall, the world is becoming more surprising in a way, right? That’s what we expect at different margins, at different corners. This will accumulate. It may not ever feel like we’re getting out of the great stagnation, but each bit of change we get is in a way a more different change than we would get, say, in 1957, where everything was done with guys with white shirts and starched white collars, hoping they would be able to buy a little pocket calculator someday.

PETER THIEL: I think the innovation that we are getting is driven in strange ways.

I worry that the conformity problem is actually more acute than it was in the ’50s or ’60s, so that the category of the eccentric scientist, or even the eccentric professor, is a species that is steadily going extinct because there is less space for that in our research universities than there used to be.

I worry that perhaps, if anything, it’s a little bit the other way. It’s very hard to measure these things or calibrate them, but I think that in politics, the conventional approach is to simply look at pollsters. What are your positions going to be? You just look at the polls, you figure this out, and it works fairly well.

At the end of the day, that’s probably not how the system really changes. It probably will be changed by some idiosyncratic people who have really strong convictions, and are over time, able to convince more people of them. But whether this means that we have more or less change is hard to evaluate. It always comes from these somewhat nonconventional channels.

An interesting thing to do with this part of the interview is replace Aspergers with masculinity and conformity with feminization.  When you do that what Thiel is saying makes just as much sense if not more.

What is going on here is that innovation requires a willingness to buck conformity just as Thiel points out.  However, Aspergers (or Autism Level 1 as it is now called in the DSM-5) in many ways is just having an ultra-masculine brain.  In other words, innovation is driven by masculinity.  On the other hand, conformity is driven by femininity.  Thiel points out that the increasing conformity of universities has driven out the eccentric innovative scientist and their Aspergers/ultra-masculine brains.  What has happened to universities over the time period Thiel is talking about?  They have become feminized so naturally they became conformist and hostile to innovation.  That’s why innovation and change comes from nonconventional channels as Thiel points out.  That describes the M(H)RM, MGTOW, and #GamerGate.

Thiel also had something to say about Japan and innovation and conformity:

TYLER COWEN: In the back room, we were talking about Japan, and a recent trip of yours to Japan. Maybe you would like to relate some of what you were saying?

PETER THIEL: They always want you to say things that are sort of contrarian and surprising, and so they asked me at this discussion I was giving in Japan. And the answer that I came up with, which was both flattering to the audience, but somewhat disturbing from our perspective, was I think we always think of Japan as this hyper-imitative, noncreative culture of extreme conformity.

My suggestion is that perhaps at this point, Japan is the least conformist, the least imitative country in the world. There’s actually a lot of interesting aesthetic cultural stuff going on, there still is a lot of very successful types of businesses. There’s innovation in food production, all sorts of interesting areas.

But then it’s an indictment of the West, where I think Japan is no longer the Japan of the Meiji Restoration of the 1870s, or the Japan of the cheap plastic imitation toys of the 1950s. It’s a country that no longer thinks it can get that much by copying the West. There’s probably still some narrow interest in IT and software. Outside of that, I think they are copying the US and Western Europe less and less.

People aren’t even learning English that much anymore. They’re speaking less English than they were 15, 20 years ago. The golf courses are all getting shut down and converted to solar farms or something; people don’t even want to play golf anymore. I think we need to take this as a real critique of our society, very seriously, that they’re finding less that’s desirable to imitate in the US or Western Europe.

I’m not sure about the golf thing because golf is also declining in the US, but that’s beside the point.  Why would Japan want to copy the West less now?  It’s because so much of the West is feminized.  The Japanese know better.  Thiel points out that the one thing Japan is interested in from the West is IT and software.  In other words, Japan only wants to copy things from the West that aren’t feminized.

One thing I have noticed is how much feminists and SJWs hate Japan.  This provides an interesting angle of that.  Japan is rejecting the feminists and SJWs since they are not innovative and ossified conformists.

TFH noticed something interesting:

Check out the Munchery menu (Munchery being a dinner-delivering company) :

https://munchery.com/menus/sf/#/2

About 90% of the serious entrees are prepared by male chefs. There are plenty of women chefs, but they only prepare the easier dessert items, which are just cookies, brownies, etc.

Irrefutable proof that men are better even at cooking, than women. You would think that being a chef on the Munchery roster is a career suited for women, since it is a new model and there is no ‘old boys network’ to break into. It is pure merit, based on something women have done since the beginning of time.

Yet, the serious meals are still prepared by men 90% of the time, with the easy things done by women.

Examine the link and poke around it. The proof is damning.

Not only this, but women couldn’t even come up with the idea.  Take a look at the founders of Munchery.  There’s not a single woman among them.  This is especially damning because Munchery was started by busy parents fathers who were looking for an option to get higher quality and quick meals for their families as they say on their about page.

It’s a damning indictment of women from multiple angles.  First, you have something that is traditionally “women’s work”, cooking, but Munchery chef roster is dominated by men, particularly when it comes to serious entrees.  Second, when you consider that women are complaining about having to do “women’s work” like cooking, they don’t come up with options like Munchery to help them out.  Third, with less and less women actually knowing how to cook, they can’t even create an option to outsource cooking to someone else.

Of course, women/feminists will say that Munchery is misogynist because they will use the excuse of blaming “misogynerds” for anything that’s even distantly related to tech.  The reality is that if such misogyny existed, then Munchery would have only been created by women and not by the men in the picture because the men in the picture would have considered it beneath them to even think about how to improve “women’s work” like cooking.  That’s another reason why Munchery is a damning indictment of women.

Höllenhund has proposed an interesting experiment to demonstrate female passivity:

Maybe it’ll illustrate my point if I propose an experiment.

Walk into the most expensive and prestigious café in the capital of the world’s most advanced and richest country. What will you find there? A bunch of women sitting around chatting about mind-numbingly dull and pointless stuff, complaining about men and shitting on them, generally whining, doing nothing useful. Now walk into the most poverty-stricken, desolate village of the world’s most backward, poorest nation. You’ll find exactly the same thing. That’s the reality of innate female passivity.

I’m not sure about the second half, but the first part is definitely true.

I found this blog about how #GamerGate is the last stand of individualism.  I certainly agree that gaming is a fundamentally individualist endavor, and that #GamerGate is a battle between individuality and collectivism.  Feminists/SJWs and the other enemies of #GamerGate do not see you as an individual.  You are simply cishet (white) male to them, same as every other cishet (white) male out there.  If you’re not a cishet (white) male, and you support #GamerGate, then you’re a weaponized minority suffering from false consciousness.  Otherwise you’re in the progressive stack of victims (with white women at the top).

I disagree that #GamerGate is the last stand of individualism because there are several other fronts where individuality is fighting collectivism.  (It’s likely that the blog author simple isn’t aware of this).  The MRM/MHRM is an individualist endeavor.  MGTOW is the ultimate example of individuality, and collectivism has no weapon that can defeat MGTOW.  MGTOW has no organization or leaders so it forces the collectivists to deal with men as individuals.  They are unable to deal with men as individuals so collectivism is guaranteed to lose against MGTOW.

I found a comment on The Good Mangina Project that needs to be saved. I’m surprised this made it past the site’s comment filters. I created an archive.today link to save it:

this is why your website is evil. it pretends to be a space for men, but in your article you insult people like me. you pretend to be geek by saying us & we but you clearly aren’t because when the man reveals his pain you belittle it by comparing him & us to a scooby doo cartoon & ignoring the argument that he made about joining a country or other organization.

noah, you don’t even run this website anymore. a man-hating girl runs it & you should be ashamed. you’ve let all men. you suck. you shouldn’t be writing about geeks any more than i should be writing about football.

This is a very succinct explanation of everything that is wrong with The Good Mangina Project.

Tamerlame had this to say:

When feminists attack men as rapists and misogynists, most manginas  and nerds assume they are talking about some other guy. Gamer gate has taught a lot of nerds, that feminists and woman hate them. This is a good lesion that more men need to learn.

That’s right.  When feminists talk about men being rapists, being privileged, or all around being evil, they’re talking about YOU.  They’re not talking about some other guy.  They’re talking about YOU.

Feminists said that the political is personal.  That means for every man feminism is a personal issue.  The fight against feminism is a fight to save our lives and our freedom.  Feminists are coming after everything about us and everything we have including our video games.  This is what #GamerGate supporters have discovered.  Feminism isn’t some sort of far away entity.  Feminism has targeted them as it has targeted every man.

Sooner or later, feminism is coming for YOU.  You’re better off fighting it sooner rather than later.

For those of you using the PaleMoon browser now due to Mozilla’s failure to stand up to feminism, Spawny Get provided some instructions to get PaleMoon to not identify itself to websites as FireFox:

All hail VD. Switching to Pale Moon, which is an excellent idea BTW, doesn’t stop your browsing being reported to sites as being on FireFox. To really stick your boot up the market sharing arse of FireFox you need to do the following.

The following is all taken from VoxDay:

http://voxday.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/fumigating-firefox.html

Since Pale Moon is built upon a Firefox base, it still reports itself to be Firefox to web sites by default. Fortunately, it is trivially simple to turn this off and cause the browser to correctly report itself as PaleMoon.

Create a new tab.
Type “about:config” into the Address Bar as if it were an internet site (URL).
Type “compatMode” into the Search box that will appear right below the Address Bar.
On the line general.useragent.compatMode.firefox there are three settings: user set, boolean, true. Click on “true” and it will change to false.
Close the tab.

That’s it. Web sites will no longer incorrectly attribute your pageviews to Firefox. If as many people have switched to Pale Moon as have switched to Chrome, the decline in Firefox usage may actually be twice what I originally estimated.

#GamerGate supporters are a diverse bunch.  We come from all walks of life and career paths.  Those career paths can include being in the military or working for the DOD or defense industry where a security clearance is required.  Sooner or later, there would be a doxxing attempt against a #GamerGate supporter with a security clearance.

That’s exactly what happened recently, and the victim was required to report it to the appropriate channels.  (There’s also a follow up interview with the doxxing victim.)  This means that the FBI and any other appropriate law enforcement authorities will be investigating some anti-gamer feminists and SJWs for everything from espionage to domestic terrorism.  The FBI will not be impressed by a group of people who say that they have more respect for ISIS than (American) gamers.  I’m certain their reaction to being investigated by the FBI will be to throw baseless accusations of misogyny against them and the DOD just like they’re trying to do with Intel now that Intel pulled advertising from Gamasutra.  I seriously doubt the FBI and DOD will be moved by a litany of accusations of misogyny against them.

I expect that anti-#GamerGate forces to end up like the woman in this video:

Feminists say that they don’t want to destroy video games, but make “better” video games.  The feminist definition of “better” video games involves turning video games from a fun activity to a vehicle for propaganda, and here is a feminist admitting it:

videogamesfun

 

The feminist desire to eliminate fun from video games means that feminists want to destroy video games.

Reality forever said:

For anyone reading this: Men do not want women taking over any industry or company because men are afraid they’ll out produce them or perform them or come up with more profitable ideas, no, men are afraid of women in the workplace because all they bring is misery, low morale, lawsuits based on false accusations, insanity in general, never ending useless meetings and all around stupidity and dysfunction and low productivity.

Even women hate working with other women. Put several cats in a small cage together and you’ll get the picture.

But we can all give a sigh of relief because women will NEVER dominate any industry and there are specific reasons why. The reasons are contained in female nature. Any female above admin in any corporate office can barely even show up for work on any consistent basis.

I know this sounds insane, but we thousands of clients and the vast majority of the companies wherein we have female contacts are rarely ever in. Many have taken off for a year at a tine. It’s like this well hidden, but giant secret that no one talks about and I don’t think a lot of people are even aware of because women are so stealth at covering up their deviance and so many people will cover for them.

In fact I’ve been trying to find other people who have seen this who deal with a large number of companies like I do.

They take off huge chunks of time- months even a year at a time then refuse to be at work before 11am and are gone by 2pm and never work on mon. or fri. then suddenly quits after a short time. Forever. Not just that job- all work completely.

Women really only want to work part time if at all – they just like the idea of work and a status title and do not want to make any commitment to anything or anyone- especially women now. That is their flaky nature. And yes, they are ALL like that- 98% of them. And they’re lazy and don’t want to ever try harder or get out of their comfort zone or take risks. Women are their own worst enemies.

This deserved to be highlighted.  None of us are afraid that women are going to outperform us.  If that was it, we wouldn’t care.  Instead, we don’t want women taking a wrecking ball to entire industries.

Back in February 2012, I wrote how young men were getting fed up with women faster than any other group of men based on a series of comments at The Spearhead.  Since then, that entry has become the most read page on this blog.  It still gets plenty of hits and even comments occasionally which is impressive considering that old content here typically only gets comments in the rarest of cases.  It’s because that page speaks to what a large group of young men are going through in dealing with women.  Young men’s frustration with women is only increasing so I wasn’t surprised by this comment I found on Dalrock’s blog:

No kidding! I have been paying special attention to young men at work between the ages of 25 & 30.I have coffee with them etc. The thing that I have noticed is what a ‘lack of respect’ that they have for women in general.I generally don’t have much respect for women myself….but,not like these guys! I mean they prey on them to use them without mercy.They treat them like garbage and use them at every opportunity.And the c**** are stupid enough to let them.The other thing that I have also noticed in the last few years is the number of men that “HATE” women……and I do mean “HATE”.I myself am into “sport sex”.Not these guys,they are into “grudge f*****g”.It is only going to get worse and women have no one to blame except themselves.

For young men their frustration with women is part and parcel of their understandable loss of respect for women.  For many young men, their frustration with women is rapidly turning into hate for women.  This is a natural and logical reaction by young men.  For their entire lives, women have been getting worse.  And unlike older men, they have no memory of a time when women didn’t engage in massive amounts of bad behavior bordering on being feral.  To these young men, the only thing women are good for is sex.  And not just any kind of sex, but “grudge fucking”.

The young men referenced in the above comment are between 25 and 30.  In a few years they will be between 30 and 35 to be replaced by a new group of young men who will have an even lower opinion of women.  Some old men who still have a positive opinion of women will have died off.  In other words, over time men who don’t hate women are likely to be replaced by men who are fed up with if not outright hate women.  We can see a difference in just a little over two years between the comment above and The Spearhead comments written back in 2012.  That’s how quickly this is happening, and it shows no signs of stopping.  Paul Elam gets emails from 16 and 17 year old teenage BOYS that are already fed up with women.  Just consider what their opinion of women will be when they’re between 25 – 30 or 30 – 35.  It’s going to be worse.  Eventually, this will hit critical mass (maybe around 2020 as TFH says).

Of course, Susan Walsh isn’t responsible for Elliot Rodger. However, she used to believe one of the things Elliot Rodger believed, and Rollo Tomasi pointed it out (even though she removed it from her website:

Well, in case you were all wondering why Aunt Giggles was so late to the Eliot Rodger show (especially after her commenting that she had no plans to do a post about the kid), lets just say that when you rebrand a site like HUS to be more accommodating for HuffPo ownership it takes a while to scrub anything that might be incriminating from your old posts:

http://www.hookingupsmart.com/2011/08/02/relationshipstrategies/the-sexual-revolution-and-you/

Oh rats! 404 Error not found.

That’s OK it takes a rat to archive a rat,…

http://wehuntedthemammoth.com/2011/08/04/susan-walsh-chartbreaker-part-2/comment-page-5/

Now, this IS peculiar! It looks as if Aunt Giggles was for creating guys like Eliot, before she was against it. That chart looks like a glowing endorsement of the 20 / 80 premise (and its cute too!).

Maybe we should alert the HuffPo and voice our concerns about their sponsoring a blogger who tacitly endorses the ideological notions that led to creating a misogynistic murderer like Eliot Rodger?

Are they aware of her attempts to scrub this post and distance herself from her complicit culpability? Gasp!

If it weren’t for bloggers like this perhaps Eliot Rodger wouldn’t have been motivated to kill 4 men and 2 women.

I really liked the graphic Rollo created out of Susan Walsh’s chart and Elliot Rodger’s video:

No one can deny that what Susan Walsh said about this subject is virtually the same as what Elliot Rodger said.

Have you wanted to go a Sunday Morning Nightclub but wish that the worship service was held in an actual nightclub instead of a church?  If so, it looks like you might get your wish.  I found out via Patriactionary that a church in Tennessee is holding services in a nightclub.

If you don’t like a night club setting for going to church, you can also go to church at a strip club in Ontario, Canada.

I’m not surprised that church services would be held at night clubs or strip clubs.  The women in all three places act the same.  In many cases you can find women at church who have been in night clubs and strip clubs in earlier stages of their lives so it makes sense that churches, night clubs, & strip clubs would merge into one thing.  I’m certain we will see more of this in the future.

Previously, I talked about this New York Times article and the attacks on tech startups that were found in the article and the article’s comments.  The comments of that article didn’t limit themselves to attacking startups.  Men working in the tech industry were attacked for having autism or aspergers syndrome and being permanently defective:

In tech especially, which tends to attract autistic-like males who are considered antisocial losers (because most of them are) we are asking stones to yield water. Short on empathy and social skills, the boy-men in the field are incapable of seeing real world suffering and POVs distinct from their own narrow ones. Riding the wave of big money and perceived “hipness” they have an outsized sense of worth when none actually exists.

Other comments didn’t explicitly accuse men working in the tech industry of having autism or aspergers syndrome, but clearly implied it:

The males who specializes in information technology, primarily software development, at least USA born and bred – I cannot speak for expatriates of other countries working as such in the USA – are stereotypical nerds with unfortunately few social skills, little to no knowledge of any subject outside of their specialty in information technology, next to no knowledge of politics, history or literature and on and on. They also tend to remain juvenile males well into maturity in many aspects of behavior.

I do not know whether there is a nerdy female equivalent, but perhaps there is.

With regard to behavior of such males, there is no hope for change. Once adult, they are beyond remediation.

Any comment that talked about men in the tech industry having low social skills or low “emotional intelligence” is accusing them of having autism or aspergers syndrome like this comment:

I am not surprised. Techies are not known for sensitivity, emotional intelligence or social skills.

There are two things to notice here.  The first is that an article about the tech industry brought out comments about how all men working in the tech industry have a disorder on the autism spectrum.  This would not have happened unless there are a lot of women and manginas who hate the men working in the tech industry.  The second is how these comments explicitly that men working in the tech industry are not curable.  In other words, men working in the tech industry and defective and an ever present threat to women.  (Even if these comments said that men in the tech industry were “curable”, that wouldn’t be much better.  Since men working in the tech industry don’t universally have an autism spectrum disorder as is claimed in these comments, attempting to “cure” these men would be equivalent to sending them to a Soviet reeducation camp.)  The people who wrote these comments are basically proposing that men currently working in the tech industry be barred from being employed in the tech industry (or in any other industry because they would be a “threat to women” wherever they go) and much worse than that as Evilwhitemale empire points out:

Here’s a thought exercise.

What is the relationship between the continuously expanded definition of autism and aspergers (to include many high functioning boys) and the recent feminist hubbub over ‘brogrammers’ and similar tech men?

hints:

-these conditions primarily affect males and are often characterized by lack of socialization combined with proficiencies in math, science, etc.

-the hubbub over ‘brogrammers’ appears to center around feminists being forced to share power in the workplace with these men that they can’t do without in order to make businesses run.
It would appear that it’s becoming clear to feminists that there’s a class of men (on the top end of the corporate ladder) whose talents they are unable to duplicate.

-mental illness classification seems like a pretty easy way to marginalize or strip rights from someone that you don’t like without requiring that they break the law first.

Evilwhitemaleempire has answered the question of why an article attacking the tech industry brings out comments attacking men working in that  industry of having an autism spectrum disorder.  Feminists can’t control a major section of the economy that is dependent on male expertise, and feminists usually need the pretext that a man broke the law to strip his rights away.  The only other way to strip a man’s rights away without him committing an actual crime (barring an outright police state) is to accuse him of mental illness.  In the Soviet Union, political dissidents were accused of being mentally ill, and feminists are attempting to do the same thing to men working in the tech industry.

Justice For Men & Boys provided us with this story how a teenage girl dropped her iPhone in a sewer.  The girl decides to retrieve her phone getting stuck in a sewer drain.  A local fire department spent 15 minutes getting the girl out of the drain.

I hope that no one had an actual fire while this was going on.  However, that isn’t the reason why they should have left her in the sewer drain.  The reason that they should have left her there is because she got herself free at one point without the local fire department.  Since she didn’t retrieve her iPhone, she decided to go back in to try to get her iPhone again and got stuck again.  If you can’t figure out that it’s a bad idea to go back into a sewer drain you were previously stuck in, then you deserve to be left there.

I found this video on how to dismantle the wage gap myth with two questions:

The two questions are:

  1. Why hire men?
  2. Who is in on the conspiracy (to pay women less)?

While I told you the two questions, you should still watch the video.  He goes into greater detail.

I haven’t had the time to follow what the red pill women are doing.  Fortunately, Laura Grace Robbins has, and she has pointed out that the red pill women are really the grey pill women (as in the 50 Shades of Grey):

I think a lot of the issues stems from women coming off a “50 Shades  of Grey” high and desperately trying to recreate a submissive role in real life. The thing is though authentic submission is not a role, a trick, a wile–I believe authentic submission comes from a heart that is focused on God.

Submission right now is a fad. Just wait till the 50 Shades movie comes out and reignites the craze and see how many more women all of sudden just “get it” and go red pill.  They will go from 50 Shades of Grey to 50 Shades of Red.

What the red grey pill women are doing is not new.  We have seen it before.  It’s another form of Game 2.0.  Call it Game 2.1 if you like.  These women are trying to co-opt game and other ideas from this part of the internet just like Susan Walsh did.  The only difference between them and Susan Walsh was that Susan Walsh was a second wave feminist who had some of her own ideas.  The red grey pill women are doing nothing but a really bad copy of our ideas.  You can even see it from the name of one of their blogs, Return of Queens.  Not only is it an obvious attempt at copying Return of Kings, it sounds like a blog for flamboyant homosexuals.   In a way, that’s appropriate because it shows how the red grey pill women can’t even copy our ideas right.  The red grey pill women are trying so hard to maintain a pretense of femininity without actual femininity that they end up in male homosexual territory.

8to12 wrote a comment about video games:

I don’t even play video games, but I’m sick of hearing men being bashed over playing video games.

Video games are this generation’s equivalent of golf.

Growing up I can remember hearing my aunt b******g about her husband playing golf. The guy ran his own business (carpet installation); worked 6 days a week; an 8 hour work day was considered a short day. On Sunday afternoons he played a round of golf with his buddies; had a few beers; and blew off some steam.

He worked hard; he supported his family; and by every indication he was a good dad and husband. But when the subject of golf came up, all that went out the window. He was wasting his time and ignoring his family, because of some juvenile kid’s game. B***h, b***h, b***h.

I see the same attitude today towards video games, and my response is so effing what? If a single man supports himself or a married man is responsible and supports himself and his family, so effing what if he wants to blow off some steam playing video games.

Every generation has had an equivalent activity. The next time you want to deride someone for playing video games, just substitute your generation’s activity (golf, garage rock band, adult softball, bowling, etc…) for video game and you’ll realize just how stupid your criticism of video games is.

The opposition to video games has nothing to do with video games themselves.  It could be golf or anything else men enjoy.  Men are not allowed to be involved in an activity without women.

Stardusk created a new video where he describes 21st century feminism:

What Stardusk calls 21st century feminism is really nazbol misandry.  He talked about how feminism has stopped attempting to have a consistent ideology and become a money laundering scheme.  This is something I already said in different words, but the term, money laundering scheme, is important.  Nazbol misandry doesn’t care about ideology or consistency.  It’s all about raw greed.  Nazbol misandry is equivalent to the mafia, drug cartels, and other criminal organizations.

Does the mafia or the Medellín Cartel care about ideology?  No, they’re all about the money.  They don’t care about ideology or morality.  They do whatever they want, whenever they want to get what they want.  The only limit on what they do is their fear of repercussions.  Imagine if the mafia or the Medellín Cartel controlled the government.  They would be able to do anything they wanted with the only limit being a popular revolt or people opting out.  Nazbol misandry is the gynocentric version of what the mafia or the Medellín Cartel would look like if most limits on their actions were removed.

Misandry has gone from being an ideology to a criminal enterprise.

EvilWhiteMaleEmpire had this to say about the fear of bad press (related to Paul Elam’s aborted appearance on 20/20):

Even a hit piece against AVfM and the manosphere would have caused many men to actually take a look at such sites who otherwise never would have. Some of those men would realize that 20/20 lied to them.
————————-
And doesn’t it shock you to see just how many in the manosphere don’t seem to get this?

Manosphere fear of bad press is based on what I like to call the ‘androgynous fallacy’.

The idea that there exists huge masses of folks who, like an androgynous person, have no dog in this fight over gender relations.

And therefore this mass can (rapidly) be persuaded to become feminists or anti-feminists based largely on who’s propaganda reaches their ears first.

It’s really quite amazing when you think about it.

Who, exactly, are we trying to impress by saying this but not saying that, by denouncing this guy or that, etc. ?

What impartial jury of public opinion on all gender matters are we trying to reach?

In the Western World there is no such thing as man who has been able to escape unscathed from feminism (except possibly very old men and very rich men).  Pretty much all men have had to deal with misandry by this point (even though they might not realize it as such).  Some end up becoming manginas like Manboobz.  Others come up with the same ideas MRAs or MGTOW do despite having no contact with either group.  (I know this is the case because I have talked to men who have expressed the many of the same ideas we talk about here even though these men have no contact with the MRM, the MGTOW community, or the Androsphere.)  The fact is there isn’t a large number of men (or women) who are blank slate androgynous people when it comes to these issues.  Every day men are negatively impacted by feminism (and misandry in general) so it doesn’t matter how big of a hatchet job 20/20 or anyone else in the media does.  No matter how evil 20/20 makes Paul Elam look, many men will know that 20/20 is lying to them thanks to their own experiences with misandry.

This brings up another reason why it’s a good idea for someone like Paul Elam to go on a show like 20/20.  There are lots of men out there who have come to the same conclusions that we have.  However, they think they’re alone.  They believe that they’re the only ones who think this way because they haven’t been able to find the MRM or the Androsphere.  Paul Elam by going on 20/20, regardless of what 20/20 does to this, can communicate to these men that they aren’t alone.  These men will find out there are communities of men who think like they do.  If you believe in the androgynous fallacy, you don’t know these men exist and don’t realize the importance of reaching out to them.

If you want to know why feminism was able to take over everything in the West so easily, read the most recent article at The Spearhead.  The Maasai actually let an American woman become a Maasai warrior.  This woman didn’t go through the real initiation process of becoming a Maasai warrior, but that doesn’t matter.  What the Maasai did is equivalent to how standards for the military, police, firemen, etc. get lowered for women.  In other words, rather than tell this woman no to becoming a Maasai warrior, the men of the Massai created an affirmative action policy for women to become Maasai warriors.  It’s that similar.

Take a look at how Tennessee Assemblyman Harry T. Burn’s mom was able to easily shame him into voting for the 19th Amendment.  Harry T. Burn gave in to the demands (and shaming language) of his mom nearly 100 years ago just as the men of the Maasai recently did.  These men came from different cultures, different nations, and different races, but it didn’t matter.  Their reaction to women was exactly the same.  They all gave in to the demands of women.  The same thing happens wherever women start making similar demands.

This means that when women start making these demands, men will cave in them.  This is true regardless of what culture, race, nationality, religion, etc. a man is a part of.  The result is always the same.  The only time men don’t give into the demands of women is when a man is part of a space that defends its space from women by being actively hostile to women.  So far that has been the only successful method of not giving into women’s demands.

Manboobz has decided to compare male geeks to the KKK:

Indeed, many of them — as tech dudes in a male-dominated tech world — are in fact in fairly privileged positions. For them to claim they need a “safe space” to protect themselves from the evils of “fake gamer girls” is a bit like Klan members claiming they need a “safe space” to protect themselves from blacks, Jews and Catholics. (Which is more or less what Klan members have argued over the years, albeit in less PC language.)

Manboobz seems to think that a group of dudes who want to engage in geeky activities without interference from feminists is equivalent to a group that lynched massive numbers of black men and engaged in terrorism.  Just as that comparison makes no sense, it makes no sense to call male geeks, “privileged”.  These are men who are at the bottom of the social hierarchy.  It’s a guarantee that almost any woman is higher on the social hierarchy than they are.  Feminists believe that homeless men are more privileged than women too so I’m not surprised they believe the same thing about male geeks.

Unlike the KKK, male geeks do need a safe space from women.  The feminist assault on the male geek subculture proves that.  Take Anita Sarkeesian.  She thinks it’s perfect all right to declare fatwas on male video game designers like how she endorses the murder of Randy Pitchford for reviving a video game series she doesn’t like:

Male geeks have nothing in common with the KKK, but their enemies do.
