Notes from the Road: How to Cross Six States in Eight Days on Foot

When I left Syracuse for the second time on Monday of last week, I fully expected I’d be stuck in State College or Cleveland right now. Instead, I made it to the Windy City eight days later. Holy wow. Oh, and it’s Independence Day. Happy rebellion, my fellow Americans! Cue the fey indie rock! Highlights […]

When Good Men Do Nothing

Moral crusades: don’t you just love them? Live 8. #Kony2012. Text “GIMMEDAT” to 69105 and donate $10 to help Haitian earthquake victims. Every other day there’s a new crusade that all Right-Thinking, Moral People must support. Crusades are popular because they allow the average moron to think he’s important. That he’s making a difference in the world. This […]

All the Young Dudes

NOTE: This article was originally published at In Mala Fide on May 30, 2012. I’m re-posting it here as the site is now defunct. *** “If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with kings – nor lose the common touch; If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you; If all men count […]

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. In response to a few comments which rightly called her creepy, our heroine left this: Totally love the double standard. Boys write about the […]

I Take the Cappy Cap Logic Challenge

Captain Capitalism has thrown down the gauntlet: The easy part is to link this to the lack of fathers. The hard part (and where we will test your economist mettle) is to explain how the majority of victims brought this upon themselves, have only themselves to blame and the delicious irony that has resulted (and consequently sweetened […]

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 […]
