So, yesterday's press conference by the maximum leader of the boyosphere proves that the boyosphere are the ultimate adultescents. What was said verbally was basically boilerplate Oregon militia "the media and the world is out to get me" paranoia and nutjobbery.
In the half-hour and change of this, the maximum leader got out a few other words, saying "of course" his article about legalising rape was satire, "of course" being a an emphatic phrase of which Sarkeesian/Full McIntosh are equally beloved as if its mere utterance settles the issue.
At about twenty minutes in, he openly admits that he is for a patriarchy. Third wave social justice jihadists, HERE is your damn patriarchy, the one you are whinging about 24-7. Not in video games, not in sci-fi, not in remuneration, but RIGHT HERE in the form of the maximum leader of the boyosphere. So why don't you leave art alone and focus your whinging on ACTUAL PROMOTERS of patriarchy?
The maximum leader also does these amazing feats of logical acrobatics. First, he says he is "nationalistic and not globalistic." Then he says his "Middle Eastern Mom is all upset about the media's treatment of [him] and is ready to hit the media." Then he turns around and says "You [the media] just love the Muslims. You attack me for having a patriarchy, but you don't say anything about the Muslims having a patriarchy." I swear, this boy's talent and energy are woefully misspent doing what he is currently doing. With his amazing pirouettes and backflips over nationalism, the Middle East and Muslims, he is guaran-damn-teed a gold medal at Rio this summer, so much so that, were the International Gymanstics Federation to see the amazing contortionist feats demonstrated in the above thirty minutes and change, they would immediately make an exception and allow this boy his well deserved shot at Olympic glory.
The maximum leader also tries to deflect from his now-"of course it was not meant to be taken literally" article on rape by pointing to the Köln mass rapes last Saint Sylvester Day's night in Germany. The tone of that line of argument is as self-serving as are the following quotes from Juli Streicher at Nürnberg:
"The speeches and articles which I wrote were meant to inform the public on a question which appeared to me one of the most important questions. I did not intend to agitate or inflame but to enlighten."
"To that I have the following to say: Incitation means to bring a person into condition of excitement which causes him to perform an irresponsible act. Did the contents of Der Sturmer incite, this is the question? Briefly stated, the question must be answered, “What did Der Sturmer write?” Several volumes of Der Sturmer are available here, but one would have to look at all the issues of 20 years in order to answer that question exhaustively. During those 20 years I published enlightening articles dealing with the race, dealing with what the Jews themselves write in the Old Testament, in their history, what they write in the Talmud. I printed excerpts from Jewish historical works… In Der Sturmer no editorial appeared written by me or written by anyone of my main co-workers in which I did not include quotations from the ancient history of the Jews, from the Old Testament or from Jewish historical works of recent times…
Allow me to add that it is my conviction that the contents of Der Sturmer as such were not incitation. During the whole 20 years I never wrote in this connection, “Burn Jewish houses down; beat them to death.” Never once did such an incitement appear in Der Sturmer. Is there any proof to be furnished that any deed was done from the time Der Sturmer first appeared, a deed of which one can say that it was the result of an incitement? "
Another point the maximum leader of the boyosphere alleged was "You [the media] did not report on the Saint Sylvester Day night mass rapes," an accusation which, to be fair, Sargon of Akkad and Milo Yiannopoulos also made. The historical record says otherwise.
"Witnesses and police said the men were of Arab or North African appearance."
This was repeated by an RT article of the same day whose title explicitly reads "Crowd of 'Arab Origin' blamed for mass sex assaults in Cologne on NYE."
An 8, January 2016 BBC article's title reads "Cologne Sex Attackers Risk Deportation-Merkel."
A 31, January 2016 RT article's title reads " Merkel: Refugees should 'go home' once war in Syria and Iraq is over."
In fact, this 12, JANUARY 2016 (date is important here) BBC article's title reads "Cologne Attacks: Germany to make foreign deportations easier," and ANOTHER 12, JANUARY 2016 BBC article's title reads "Cologne Attacks: German Reforms to ease deportations." The fact that both of these articles appeared on 12, JANUARY 2016 is important because they predate this and this video (both uploaded on 20, JANUARY 2016) by Sargon of Akkad--wherein he alleges that discussion about the Köln Saint Sylvester Day's Night rapes was still "being suppressed"--by over a week.
Oh, and as a matter of interest, I cannot help but remark upon the fact that the day of the boyosphere's supposed international shinding, 6, February 2016, was also the day PEGIDA planned mass demonstrations across Europe. This is one hell of a coincidence. Given the boyosphere's view on Muslim migrants, it is even more of one hell of a coincidence.
Now that whatever little substance of the maximum leader of the boyosphere's press conference has been addressed, let us turn to the maximum leader's presentation, which says a LOT more about him that his actual words. The maximum leader of the boyosphere, you see, claims that he is the ultimate he-man, that the "World's Most Interesting" Dos Equis poster boy don't have a thing on him. Well, look at how the maximum leader presented himself. Cover on his head--even though he is indoors--all the time. Regulation Taliban beard (most ironic from someone who blasts Muslims.) T-shirt. Walking around manically, bottle of water in hand, gesticulating wildly.
This, the boyosphereans argue, is supposed to be a man?????????? NO! This is not a man. This is an adultescent, the ULTIMATE adultescent, in fact. I might possibly catch hell from libertarians for using the term adultescent, so let me head that off at the pass. I am NOT saying laws should be put in place to ban chronological adults from behaving like adultescents/kiddults if that is their desire. Nor am I abrogating freedom of speech in any sense. What I am pointing out, as has become a recurrent theme in these parts, is that how you handle yourself in public, how you present yourself, says a lot about you. How you behave in public is a factor in determining how others form their opinions of and react to and deal with you. Just because you have the right to act like an ape, that does not mean you should do so as a matter of routine. I am not the only one who says this. From the American Conservative (who are no friends of the manosphere) article I linked to earlier in this paragraph:
"The Economist summed it up in its millennium special report: “Once, when you grew up you put away childish things. Today, the 35-year-old Wall Street analyst who zips to work on his push-scooter, listening to Moby on his headphones and carrying annual reports in his backpack, has far more in common with a 20-year-old than he would have done a generation ago.” A physicians’ organization called the Society for Adolescent Medicine reports on its website that it is concerned with people 10 to 26 years old, while the MacArthur Foundation’s “Transitions to Adulthood” project puts the transition’s end at 34 years old." [emphases mine.]
Now, let me give you some video evidence of how REAL ADULT MEN behave when the press has the spotlight on them. Do a compare/contrast exercise with the way the REAL ADULT MEN behave in the following eleven videos below--or with the way REAL ADULT MEN behave in ANY ONE OF the sample of the following eleven videos below--and the way the maximum leader of the manosphere behaves in the press conference linked to in the first paragraph of this entry:
While there may be points of variance in our opinions, I take what the immediately preceding eleven real men say very seriously. The reason for that is that they present themselves in an actual manly and professional manner. They are not all in Class A's, but they dress as if they respect themselves. They also carry themselves like they respect themselves, which they obviously do. Each observes the grooming standards. Each respects the interviewers and, by extension, the larger audience, by not having a water bottle in hand throughout the interview. While some gesticulate, they do so in a restrained manner. And they all have the discipline to sit or stand still and not wander all over the damned room in and out of view. Not a single one of them blames the whole world and the media for any ills they linger under. Not a one of them indulges in nutty Oregon militia-type conspiracy theories.
One cannot say the same thing at all about the maximum leader of the manosphere. In fact, the way said maximum leader carries himself in the press conference linked to in the first paragraph is very reminiscent of a certain adult industry washout/failed wrestling promoter who has a video channel and who, like other adult industry washouts and ring rats, was regularly attacking Kink.com, FSC and Christian Mann while actively colluding with Michael Whinestain and AHF during, not only the Measure B campaign of 2012 but also the big industry HIV scare of 2013 (when, it turned out, that the infected people in question did not get infected on set.) I am not going to say said washout's name because I hold him in exactly the same regard that Eli Cross holds Mary Sunshine (unsurprisingly, said washout was in cahoots with Mary Sunshine at the time) and I in no way want to promote him by saying his name directly, but I will say that he has a) an extremely raspy and annoying voice, b) an extremely annoying Noo Yawk accent as bad as Shoe0nhead's, which only exacerbates the effect of his already extremely raspy and annoying voice, and c) holds a permanent, inveterate antipathy towards the people who run Evil Angel, people who are widely respected within the adult entertainment industry.
So, when it comes to men, or being a man, you have a choice. You can go the boyosphere route, or you can go the real man route. The two are mutually exclusive.
