Fat Acceptance is the Future


Forgive me o Lady, for I have sinned. I have mocked fat women for being unattractive, unsightly and unpleasant. I have reinforced the dogma of the heteronormative patriarchy because I thought it was the truth. But now, I have seen the light. Fat acceptance is the future. Nigel truly is a pioneer, the new Mystery for […]

Leaping Into the Pain


Two weeks ago, I was about ready to quit. I’d been refused entry to Canada after a two-hour ordeal, then harassed by a couple of pigs with nothing better to do. After getting lost trying to find the nearest motel (no cell service in that little podunk town), I finally got a hold of the […]

The Backlash Against Feminism Has Arrived


A great article from W.F. Price of The Spearhead (who also did a very nice writeup on me last week) on the emergence of a true backlash against feminism. The skinny: some dorkette started a Kickstarter project for a documentary on sexist stereotypes in video games and got trolled by some /b/tards. Feminists the world over […]

A Letter to My Future Wif—, Er, Girlfrie—, Er, Fuckbuddy


Last week, Danger & Play Tweeted a link to “A Letter to My Future Husband,” in which a dating blogmistress displays her various mental pathologies so her online girlfriends can high-five her.

The Way of Men by Jack Donovan


NOTE: This article was originally published at In Mala Fide on April 11, 2012. I’m re-posting it here because I’ve taken the site off-line. I’ve replaced the text of the (inferior) review that was previously at this URL. *** During my first semester at college, I had the misfortune of having an emo for a roommate. Everything […]

Defining Misogyny Downward


If you need an extra-concentrated dose of aggressive stupidity, check out this article “Pick Up Artists” at Counter-Currents Publishing. The author, apparently a woman, rages against game with the usual screeching hysteria and general irritability you expect from women on the Internet. I’m not interested in countering her thesis, dumb as it is, but commenting on […]



When I started on this trip, I pledged to myself that I would travel “unplugged,” with my ears clear and my phone off, save to take pictures. This was motivated in part by necessity; as I’ve mentioned, I have an El Cheapo phone plan that leaves me without service in rural areas and in Canada. […]
