I know I’m a bit late to the game, but I’ve been enjoying my vacation. I actually tried to make a post several times while I was spending the week at the beach house, but I couldn’t bring myself to do the research. Every time I read the lies and libel against us from these lying, agenda driven journalists, I honestly felt nauseous. So I decided to not ruin my vacation with this disgusting garbage. But now I’m home and it’s time to address this nonsense.
I’ll begin with the obvious. Well, that which is obvious to anyone who has a functional brain and spends five minutes doing research.
Elliot Rodger was an active member of a website called “PUAHate.” In case the name doesn’t give it away, this is a site for people who hate PUAs. It’s also a bit of a catch-all for people who hate the entire Manosphere. Kind of like Manboobz, and I have no doubt that Elliot read that site as well. Elliot was not part of the Manosphere. No one who blogs in the ‘Sphere had ever heard of him until he went crazy and killed four men and two women.
That’s another important point. He killed FOUR men and TWO women. For any leftist/liberals who are reading this, I know you folks aren’t good at math, so for the record: That means he killed twice as many men as he did women. That means he killed more men than women. I know math is hard, and I can only assume that is why you people have tried to claim Elliot “killed seven women” as is stated in the petition to classify the Men’s Rights Movement as a “terrorist organization.”
I’m not a Men’s Rights Activist, nor am I a big fan of the movement. However, they are considered a part of the Manosphere, so I am very aware of their ideas and I’ve read a lot of their blogs. Let’s discuss the MRM for a moment.
Many MRAs are as liberal as they come. They are, by and large, the male version of Feminists. They want Daddy Government to fix all the problems in the world with more laws, more legislation, etc. They are basically a special interest group, lobbying for help from Big Brother. They are also very anti-violence. MRAs do not advocate violence against women, men, or anyone else. When the MRM has a conference or meetup, they state explicitly that members are not allowed to use violence, even in self defense. Should a member be attacked, they are commanded to fall on the ground and assume the fetal position while other members call for help. Yet these lying journalists/bloggers claim that the MRM is a misogynist, pro-violence, evil organization. You people should try doing some research. I know reading is hard, but try it. You could save yourself from looking like complete idiots to those who are better informed. It’s also worth noting that a lot of MRAs are women.
Now let’s talk PUAs. For those who aren’t aware, PUA is the abbreviation for “Pick Up Artist.” PUAs focus all their time and energy on having casual sex with women. Not killing women. Not hating women. Not going on murderous rampages. The PUAs want nothing more in life than to have women pay attention to them and have sex with them. The last thing a PUA would want is for a woman to die, because that’s one woman that they won’t be able to have sex with. Are they a bit ridiculous sometimes? Absolutely. PUAs are willing to give up money, security, stability and anything else required if it means they can move to whatever third world country Roosh has identified as a “pussy paradise” this week. It’s sad, but far from dangerous or violent.
Now that I’ve covered the two sub-sects of the Manosphere that Elliot Rodger was supposedly associated with, let’s talk about Elliot. He was the son of a Hollywood small timer. His Dad probably could have done a lot better for himself and his son if he had stuck with working for other people instead of blowing all his money on making his own shitty documentary. Bygones. Elliot’s parents divorced and she had a series of boyfriends. This isn’t good for any child, but he was already pretty fucked up so who knows if a stable family life would have helped him.
Elliot’s biggest problem was his sense of entitlement. Mommy and Daddy gave him everything he wanted, so he assumed the rest of the world should lick his ass too. When that didn’t happen, he retreated into the world of video games, most notably “World of Warcraft.” If one thing should arise from all this, it should be the realization that MMORPGs are probably the worst thing for people. I had a friend once who was hooked on WoW (World of Warcraft.) He’s not my friend anymore because he’s dead. He shot himself in the head because he couldn’t cope with the real world after spending his formative teenage years in an online fantasy world. Think about it. I would rather catch my son jacking off to gay porn than playing World of Warcraft. No, I’m not exaggerating.
Now that I’ve laid out the truth about MRAs, PUAs, and Elliot Rodger, it’s time to talk about the media response to this tragedy.
Despite the fact that Elliot was a member of PUAHate, an anti-Manosphere community, many journalists and bloggers have seized on this tragedy as an opportunity to promote their agendas. Primarily, their desire to vilify and destroy masculinity and all remaining “male-only spaces,” even those on the internet. So let’s name some names and call these lying, slandering, insults to the profession of journalism out into the light, shall we? They gave up their journalistic integrity to promote a damaging leftist agenda, and it’s time to bring them front and center.
The top name on my list is Caitlin Dewey. Caitlin wrote an article for the Washington Post called “Inside the ‘Manosphere’ That Inspired Santa Barbara Shooter Elliot Rodger.” I’m not going to write an excessive amount about this liar, since Matt Forney has already done a great write-up on her. You can also check out the Podcast by Aurini and myself for more info.
In short, Caitlin blames the Manosphere for Elliot’s actions. The most glaringly dishonest sentence from her article is: “Rodger has personally been linked to an account on the pick-up site PUAhate.com.” Can you even read that sentence without your brain hurting from attempting to fathom the logic (or lack thereof)? A PICK UP SITE (aka a PUA site) called PUAHATE? That’s like saying he was a member of a Christian site called IHATEGOD. It truly boggles the mind. Only two conclusions could be drawn from this. Either Caitlin Dewey is severely mentally handicapped, in which case no one should take her writing seriously, or she is purposefully and intentionally lying in order to promote an agenda. I will let you draw your own conclusions.
Next up is Christie Hartman. She wrote an article called “Rejection, Self-Entitlement, Misogyny, and Murder.” In this article, she claims that Elliot was an active member of many PUA and MRA sites. And I quote:
“This murderer was an active member of some PUA (Pick-up Artist) and MRA (Men’s Rights Activist) communities, and his rants had the all-too-familiar tags of someone who’d spent far too much time there.”
After I called her out on Twitter for being the lying bitch that she is, she added a correction to the article:
” [CORRECTION: It seems he was a member of PUA HATE, a site that criticized PUAs but is considered by some to represent the negative aspects of PUA and MRA beliefs/criticisms about women. Much of his manifesto reflected some of these beliefs.] “
So, even after being called out as a liar and going as far as to add a correction, she still cannot help but make the correction a stab at the Manosphere. “Is considered by some to represent the negative aspects of PUA and MRA.” Really? How could that be, considering these people are the antithesis of the MRA and PUA community? They are the enemies of these communities. Perhaps they represent what you WANT the MRA and PUAs to be about, so you associate them with us despite them being rejects from the Manosphere? I don’t care that she printed an underhanded insult and called it a correction, she shouldn’t have written shit she hadn’t done research on and slandered an entire community unjustly.
The next specimen up for examination is Fredrik DeBoer. His parents inability to spell his name properly is just the beginning of his issues.
Fredrik wrote and article called “Destroy Traditional Masculinity.” I think the title tells you everything you need to know, but here’s an excerpt:
“The association of male value with aggression, dominance, and power is one of the most destructive forces in the world, and so it has to be destroyed. Traditional masculinity has to die in just the same way that sexism and racism and homophobia have to die. It can’t be reformed, it can’t be rescued. It has to be replaced. It’s utterly infected, with the celebration of violence, sexual entitlement, throbbing misogyny, and a fake self-confidence that is almost always hiding total self-loathing. If the kind of sick masculinity that leads to these crimes were a religion, people would call it incompatible with modernity.”
I think “Fredrik” is very confused about traditional masculinity. You should definitely click the link and read the entire article, and tell him what you think in the comments. Traditional masculinity brings to mind words like chivalry, fatherhood, protection, and provider. While some members of the Manosphere consider “provider” to be a descriptor of “Beta male,” I don’t agree. The traditional masculine man provided for his family, protected his loved ones, and sacrificed anything, up to and including his life, for his family and his country. And this needs to be destroyed? Perhaps some of the ridiculous modern notions of the “badass, asshole pussy slayer” need to go, but traditional masculinity? Not so much.
Yes, power and dominance are part of masculinity. They are part of what makes a man. As is the capacity for violence. I promise you, dear reader, that all the citizens of France who were liberated from Nazi occupation by American soldiers (men) were not complaining about the male capacity for violence. The capacity for violence is an integral part of Manhood, but you are supposed to use it to protect yourself and the weak/innocent, not to pick fights in bars or rape/murder innocent people. That’s it for “Fredrik.” Maybe if his parents had been able to spell he wouldn’t have turned into such a mangina.
The last “journalist” I’m going to call out right now is Linda Kelsey. She wrote an article for the Daily Mail titled “Inside the World of the Woman Haters.” Please read the entire article, it’s completely ridiculous and full of libel.
She spends several paragraphs attacking PUAs and MRAs, claiming that both groups are just woman haters, and even goes so far as to claim that there are MRA sites where women are “scored from 1 to 10″ and objectified. I’ve been a member of the Manosphere for several years, and I’ve yet to encounter a MRA site that objectifies women. Perhaps she doesn’t know the difference between MRAs and PUAs? Here’s a quote:
“There are also Men’s Rights websites on which women are rated from one to ten. One man was ‘semi-depressed’ because although he claimed to be attractive and intelligent, he said could never find a woman to sleep with whom he rated above a ‘seven’. “
If anyone can find me a Men’s Rights website that focuses on rating women on a number scale, please let me know. Otherwise, I call out Linda Kelsey for libel, slander and a total lack of journalistic integrity. Oddly enough, after her erroneous rant about PUAs and MRAs, she finally comes around to PUAHate and admits that it’s the only website that Rodger actually visited.
The hatred of women doesn’t stop there. For those young men who fail to lure the girl of their choice, there was, until this week, Puahate.com. This was used by Rodger himself, and some members were hailing the killer as a hero for his actions. It has now been taken down but there are many others like it out there.”
So, let’s recap. The only site that Elliot Rodger was an active member of was PUA Hate. PUA Hate is an anti-Manosphere site. Yet certain lying journalists have somehow attempted to link Elliot’s activity on PUA Hate with being an active PUA and MRA. If you can’t see the idiocy and dishonesty of this, there is nothing I can do for you.
>My friend Matt Forney has sent me links to many more articles written by lying scumbags, but I think this post is long enough. I will be doing more installments in this series until every journalist who lies about us has been called out. I ask my readers to post links in the comments section to any writers/articles you would like me to call out in my future installments and I thank you in advance for the help.
It’s good to be back. Let’s stand up for ourselves and get the truth out there.
