Notes from the Road: I Got Cuffed by Canadian Border Cops and Other Fun Stories

Yes, Canada, that friendly northern country with friendly people known for letting in just about anyone, turned me away twice last week because I “had no ties to the U.S.” The second time was after I threw my passport, driver’s license, social security card, hostel booking receipts, round-trip bus ticket, names, addresses and phone numbers of […]

Unplugged

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. […]

You’ve Got Bigger Problems Than the Game

Like any online community of a sufficient size, the manosphere has its BSers. Keyboard players. Fakers. Frauds. They gather together on blogs and forums to dissect various types of openers, debate whether certain mundane, everyday actions are “alpha” or “beta,” and condemn any woman less attractive than Monica Bellucci as ugly. For example, take this […]

God Bless America? God Bless Bobcat Goldthwait!

Annoying reality TV stars, loudmouth talk show hosts, funeral-picketing gay-bashing Christians, rude moviegoers and other scum of the earth […]

Ordinary Internet People: I Hate ‘Em

I was going to run this article next week, but in honor of Paul Elam and the PMSing little girls at A Voice for Men, I’ve pushed it up a few days. The idiots are self-regarding consumer slaves, oblivious to the paradox of their uniform individuality. They sculpt their hair to casual perfection; they wear […]

Paul Elam Argues Like a Girl

What a delight it was for me to discover last Sunday that my article “The Problem with the Men’s Rights Movement” was the focus of a Two Minutes Hate over at A Voice for Men. Even better, it was led by none other than the Grand Poobah Paul Elam himself! It was like being five […]

Forget the Past and Just Say Yes

The image above is of the Eternal Flame Falls in Orchard Park, NY, just outside of Buffalo. It’s a little waterfall with a natural gas leak, meaning there’s a naturally occurring flame burning at all hours of the day. There are other leaks nearby, but they have to be lit with a match; the one […]

Hydrofucked

Before I resolutely decided to hike across America to Portland, I seriously considered hopping on a bus to Williston, North Dakota instead. If you’ve been reading the news, you know that Williston is the oil boomtown that’s been hiring guys for jobs paying up $120,000 a year without any prior qualifications. As a result, jobless […]

The Problem with the Men’s Rights Movement

NOTE: This article was originally published at In Mala Fide on May 1, 2012. I’m re-posting it here as the site will soon be defunct. *** I’ve been a long-time lurker in the manosphere and on MRA blogs. I agree with much of what they say, but I realized a while ago that I couldn’t […]

“Looks Don’t Matter”: How to Tell Keyboard Players from the Real Thing

Do any of the frauds who claim that “looks don’t matter” for guys really believe the BS they’re spewing? Unlike most of these dregs, I’m not anonymous. You can see what I look like by clicking on my About page. Without so much as pressing the Play button on my vlog, you can guess the […]
