Just FYI: The Church of Satan is totally into that whole sex robot thing

Just FYI: The Church of Satan is totally into that whole sex robot thing

So last night I was skimming through the official Church of Satan Info Pack, like you do, and I made an interesting discovery. Alongside such standard Satany things as, you know, eugenics, vengeance, naked-lady altars, it turns out that the official Church of Satan position on sex robots is: Yes, please! In fact, they’re so into […]

NYT: Planned Parenthood shooter “a gentle loner who occasionally unleashed violent acts”

NYT: Planned Parenthood shooter “a gentle loner who occasionally unleashed violent acts”

Here’s a question that would seem to have a simple, obvious answer: When is it ok to describe an alleged multiple murderer with a history of violence as a “gentle” man? The correct answer is of course “never,” but the New York Times managed to get this question wrong in a profile of alleged Planned Parenthood killer Robert […]

James Deen: Porn’s Missing Stair?

Three women, so far, have come forward to accuse porn star James Deen of sexual assault. It seems exceedingly likely there will be more. After porn actress Stoya tweeted on Saturday that Deen had forcibly raped her, other women in the porn industry made clear that they’d been warning fellow performers about Deen’s allegedly predatory actions for years.

Ted Cruz takes up the bizarre claim that the Planned Parenthood shooter is “a transgendered leftist activist.”

The right-wing distraction machine has shifted into high gear. Now Republican presidential wannabe Ted Cruz is seizing on the bizarre notion, advanced by fringy right-wing ideologues, that the alleged Planned Parenthood shooter, Robert Lewis Dear, is a trans woman. And he’s doing so as a way to distract from the increasing evidence that Dear’s terrorist assault […]

“Sarkeesian Effect” auteur Jordan Owen hopes to con gullible internetters out of $60k to make his next film

Why Aren’t Men Funny? A Case Study, with MGTOWs

So the fellas on the Men Going Their Own Way subreddit are trying their hands at humor. It’s not going very well for them. Here they try  a variation on the old “so-and-so walks into a bar” formula, with Jessica Valenti and Anita Sarkeesian replacing the usual rabbis and priests. (I also make an appearance.) […]

“Feminists you should be F**CKING SHOT,” and other insights from Scott Adams’ fans

So our dear old friend Scott Adams has responded to my recent post on him by declaring it “Pathetic Outragism” and me an “Outragist.” He also strongly suggested that I was a stupidhead. Which is a step up, I suppose, from calling me fat, which is the go-to response of many of those I’ve written […]

Men’s Rights Redditors outraged that Jennifer Lawrence wants a boyfriend who’s not a jerk

Jennifer Lawrence is, in case you didn’t know this already, an incredible goofball, almost as famous for her hilariously unfiltered comments as she is for her film roles. “If I don’t have anything to do all day, I might not even put my pants on,” she once confessed to Glamour. “I’m the fastest pee-er ever,” she told […]

Scott Adams: We live in a matriarchy because men have to get permission for sex

The Paris attacks have inspired cartoonist and opinion-haver Scott Adams to reflect on some of the true injustices in the world today. Specifically, the fact that in the United States, men often pay for dates, yet cannot have sex with women without getting their permission first.

New Theory: Feminists argue with misogynists online because they are desperate for male attention

  So I was skimming my way through the comment section on a recent Telegraph article on MRAs and the Red Pill. Naturally, the comment section was filled to overflowing with angry comments from an assortment of familiar MRA and “Red Pill” names. I happened to notice some, well, intriguing contributions to the discussion from a fellow I didn’t […]

That Anders Breivik dude has some good ideas, Dark Enlightenment Redditors suggest

I found the above on the Dark Enlightenment subreddit, home to some of the most reactionary dudes on all of Reddit. Seriously, fellas, if you’re turning to a neo-Nazi mass murderer for insights into the world, you might want to sit down for a while and rethink the choices you’ve made in your life.
