Now you know where the bridge in Type O'Negative's My Girlfriend's Girlfriend (the "Her and me and her and she and we" part) was very likely stolen from, LOL! Also perhaps, the sitar-like intro to Guns N'Roses' Pretty Tied Up. You won't believe how many non-gothic bands were secretly inspired by goth bands behind the scenes. A lot of closet goths out there amongst early 1990s bands.

Welcome back!

Let's correct a lazy journalist: Zachary Kourgialis' "Dissecting internet politics and the alt-right with Theryn Meyer and ContraPoints" by ISaidWhatISaid in ContraPoints

[–]ISaidWhatISaid[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Let's correct a lazy journalist:

"Natalie Parrott — who has a PhD in philosophy"

ContraPoints does NOT have a PhD in philosophy. The phrase ContraPoints uses is to say that he has "half of a Philosophy PhD". This means he dropped out BEFORE getting his PhD. ContraPoints has described his time in academia as "a string of failed careers.". This person has NO academic credentials to speak of.

"ContraPoints has debated her on live-streams in the past."

CP has not debated Blaire White on LivestreamS. They had one single Livestream. Most of their arguments were on Twitter. These tweet arguments included CP accusing Blaire White of being "a cam whore" to insult her.

"The uproar ultimately died down when Blaire White dropped out two weeks before the show without any explanation.""

Blaire White didn't drop out, Theryn cancelled the event because she was in love with Nyk and wanted to have Nyk all to himself without Blaire becoming a third wheel and getting in the way of their courtship. Theryn knew that Nyk was attracted to Blaire and assumed Blaire might be competition if Nyk had to choose between the two of them.

"To begin the night, Parrott addressed the backlash from her fan-base by explaining that her more hostile and hyperbolic followers passed around half-truths on Twitter accusing her of raising money for “a Nazi event,” but also saying that this group was simply a loud minority."

This is a narrative that ContraPoints has tried to push and is a narrative that is plainly false. What actually happened is that UBC students themselves contacted CP over Twitter to warn him about the Free Speech Club. ContraPoints did not respond to any of these students' tweets.

"Both Parrott and Meyer agreed that the likes of Yiannopoulos, Shapiro and Spencer should not be given a platform to spout their beliefs because they refuse to engage in good faith — they are simply mouthpieces for bigoted views trying to appear as close to the Overton window as possible."

Yet at the same time ContraPoints and his former associate, the MRA tradthot transwoman Theryn Meyer, both have no qualms about getting on a Livestream with Meyer's BFF Lauren Southern. ContraPoints, for all the lofty talking, really has no principles when it comes to whom he was willing to debate at the very beginning of his career in order to gain notoriety and grow his platform. ContraPoints is as opportunistic and nepotistic as you would expect a narcissistic Youtubber to be who only wants to associate with other Youtube celebrities and political VIPs.

The UBC event where Theryn Meyer interviewed ContraPoints after kicking Blaire White from the original bill, that was nothing but a whitewash for Theryn Meyer to once again reinvent herself as a supposed centrist - a trick she had already once pulled in the past - and for the Free Speech Club (which is run by Theryn's then-soon-to-be-hubbie, a guy who uses the charming alias "McNukesForSale" in social media) to redeem themselves of their reputation. Of course Theryn realized that she could do a 180, dump her future husband and join ContraPoints' cult of personality to redeem herself.

Unpopular opinion: parts of third-wave feminism directly led to the rise of trans ideology by Aureus in politics

I looked into the film you suggested, "The Mask You Live In", which targets "toxic masculinity" and a supposed "narrow definition of masculinity". It was written, directed, and produced by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, an outspoken and self-identiifed feminist.

I had no idea who made the documentary and I really don't care. By that standard no feminist woman should ever watch The Red Pill (2016) documentary either, no leftwinger should ever watch a documentary by a rightwinger, etc.

You say that men who transition, by and large, are not familiar with feminist ideas. Maybe that's true, I can't say.

If you don't even know how familiar with feminism most trannies actually are (and I can assure you, most know next to nothing about feminism, neither care to learn), how on earth can you imply with such certainty that their transitions are driven by feminist motivations?

But very prominent feminists - including feminists you promote - are extremely supportive of men transitioning, at the same time they criticize "traditional masculinity".

It's virtually impossible to be a public feminist in this day and age and not at the very least appear to be supportive of trannies. I am pretty sure most of them are just putting on a show to avoid being cancelled because they've seen what happens to feminists who come out and openly admit what they really think about transgenderism. It's possible that the maker of this documentary is a true believer in transgenderism but you never know because there is a very strong incentive to lie about these things. I would assume people like you think feminists are all liars anyway.

Reddit Censorship: Ex-/r/detrans mod interviewed about the subreddit being targeted by AHS, League Trolls and Bardfinn by ISaidWhatISaid in censorship

I didn't know Google was actively manipulating their search algo to hide detrans communities from their search results while highlighting anti-detrans narratives.

IMO, /r/detrans, /r/truscum, /r/TGandSissyRecovery, they should all just up and leave Reddit, send all the members a "We're moving to Saidit" message pointing them to their backup subs here, and then leave behind a long FU post for Reddit detailing all the targeted abuse from AHS, League Trolls, Masstagger and Bardfinn that led to them leaving. They're practically already here, all they need to do is take that one last step. Stop living with a Democlean sword hanging over your heads. Your relationship to Reddit is the very definition of a toxic abusive relationship. Set yourselves free. #WalkAwayFromCensors

Wow girl, you really triggered them by pointing out that most wars are by men for men. There is literally nothing they can bring up against that simple fact. The industrial war-machine is overwhelmingly a male-run enterprise for the benefit of rich men. These men that pretend to care for the fate of men will happily send their own sons to die in some rich oil baron's oil war. If men are supposedly so much smarter and better than women, why do they agree to fight and to die in other men's wars? "risk their lives protecting you from accidents/crime/war" XD XD XD they write this crap down and pretend to believe it to guilt-trip their critics for bringing up industrial global war-mongering. Hey, it's OK to admit that you're all mercenaries doing it for the money, not because you want to protect anyone or anything. Those oil barons you're sending off your sons to die to protect could use that money to just dig another well you know. But I guess you would rather not know.

They are almost universally left-wing progressive activists, to the point that it seeps into their daily lives. This is exactly what you'd expect to see if radical progressivism leads to becoming trans, or if the two movements are connected in some way. TiMs and third-wave feminists agree on almost 100% of issues.

I don't think so. To suggest that men are transitioning because of feminism implies familiarity with feminist ideas and I can assure you most of the men who have transitioned in the past 50 years have never read a feminist book in their lives, attended a feminist event or spoken to a feminist IRL. They are as unfamiliar with feminism - socially, politically or academically - as the average cis man is, and feminism has exactly zip to do with why they are transitioning.

Take a batch of awkward males, tell them their masculinity is problematic and men are toxic, set up women as the admirable opposite of that, and remove all barriers to males being seen as "women".

As for the claim that men want to transition to gain access to the supposed perks that feminism only affords to women, I can assure you that men don't want to transition to become cranky middle-aged seasoned feminists, they want to transition to become sexy young feminism-ignorant women. The amount of videos I have seen from trannies where they use "becoming a woman" as a shorthand for what is basically cosmetic age-reversal is staggering. Youtuber ContraPoints for example literally said that the purpose of his transition is to turn himself into "a 20 year old girl". ContraPoints doesn't actually want to be a 20 year old girl, he just wants to look youthful and fresh like one. A lot of this is about narcissism and vanity, not an attraction to femininity.

The gigantic rise in trannies came from AGPs and those are for the most part porn-motivated or midlife crisis motivated transitions (things like divorce, loss in masculine vitality due to aging, reaching a professional or personal plateau and wanting to undertake a new "adventure" to get out of that, etc). Then there are the genuine perverts, these men that basically wanted to possess the women they were seeing in porn, and transitioning was the only way to possess that woman. There were surgeons and therapists who refused to operate on or refer AGPs (they would only transition HSTSs), but their students realized AGPs were the new growth market, so when they set up their own practices they took in all the AGPs the previous generation would have rejected.

(If you don't know about the AGP/HSTS taxonomy, look it up. Trannies will tell you that the taxonomy is bull but 99% of trannies still fall into either category so the taxonomy is as solid as ever.)

I'm surprised more gender-critical feminists haven't gravitated towards figures like Camille Paglia or Jordan Peterson, both of whom are critical of trans ideology and recognize the need of young men to attain a sense of masculine self-worth and confidence (lest they be taken in by far more subversive ideologies).

Jordan Peterson is a narcissistic academic who has pulled an Elizabeth Warren and pretended to "go native" so he's not above SJW tendencies himself. This Peterson guy is just the new Baudrillard. There have always been white male philosophers and intellectuals babbling away with white nerds getting their pants in a bunch (and their pants down) about it. I never would have heard of Peterson if people weren't tweeting and mentioning him all the time. Why are people so obsessed with him? All you are doing is free advertising for him. I think feminists today mainly hate Camille Paglia, not just because she criticized their movement (for denying biological realism) and attacked their feminist figureheads like Naomi Wolf, but also because Paglia once defended pedophilia as an authentic expression of gay culture (I don't know if she still holds those positions today, she did very explicitly hold such repugnant opinions on the past).

With regards to "de-stigmatizing" masculinity, check out this documentary, this what young boys today should be watching:

A Sundance Documentary. THE MASK YOU LIVE IN follows boys and young men as they struggle to negotiate the narrow definition of masculinity. The film illustrates how gender stereotypes are reinforced by media, peers, and adults, and interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze boys and young men must navigate to become "real" men. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6C2ntL-60A

Important thread on Reddit censorship from an /r/detrans ex-mod by ISaidWhatISaid in censorship

Here is /r/ContraPoints & /r/AgainstHateSubreddits moderator Bardfinn openly arguing that /r/detrans should be "classified as a hate subreddit"

r/Detrans is operated by transmisics and platforms anti-science transmisic propaganda, as well as offering bad advice regarding the medical nature of detransition (Their advice should be limited to "Find a qualified physician and follow their guidance", while respecting the detransitioner's privacy). https://www.reddit.com/r/AgainstHateSubreddits/comments/dbudfd/rhomophobes_is_banned/f26396e/

AHS, you can't seriously claim you give a damn about detransitioners while Bardfinn is actively smearing them trying to get them censored and banned. Go and have a talk with your censorious moderator who wants to prevent detransitioners from speaking out, if you really give a shit. But I know you won't and I know you don't.

Bardfinn claims that Reddit users have already called LE on him after seeing that Bitchute video (that /r/detrans ex-mod linked to; most people saw the original video when it was first posted to Youtube, so this video has been around longer than its Bitchute incarnation). I don't know if that's true though, considering how many times Bardfinn has lied before about being targeted. IMO the Bitchute video is too vague to warrant a report to LE because nothing explicit is being said, only implied by the maker of the video. We don't know who posted it and they haven't provided any other receipts to show they were substantially involved with AHS. Remember, these people aren't above self-victimization and planting things to make themselves look like mob-victims, so let's deny them that opportunity.

That said, I did once come across a post where Bardfinn claimed that, at some "large business that makes telecom/networking equipment" he used to work at, he once managed to put one of his co-workers behind bars for storing CP on the company network:

The guy had brought in a case of burned CDs full of kiddie porn, and was distributing it off our network, via Limewire. https://i.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/6cwk3b/what_was_something_you_saw_you_were_definitely/dhy06mt/.compact BU: http://archive.is/DhG9K

Again, no evidence whatsoever of this being a true story, only Bardfin's word for it (which is worth exactly zip), but it did seem like an interesting story in the context of that Bitchute video and allegations that AHS is infiltrating and planting CP on enemy subreddits to create an excuse for an instant suspension by Reddit Admins. Here you have a guy claiming that he was once a pedo-catcher at his previous job... so why would he encourage others to plant CP on subreddits just to take them down? (Again, assuming this story about Bardfinn catching a pedo at his former job is true and assuming he has no problem with being a massive hypocrite about this.)

Another the thing I find weird: if a subreddit was quietly infiltrated by AHSers using sockpuppet accounts, who quietly waited until the moment they began planting CP there... Reddit Admins should be able to tell that this was happening by looking at the history of the account(s) that posted the CP to that particular subreddit. If that account had no prior interactions (or only normal interactions) with the subreddit, only to suddenly burst out with posting CP, Admins should be able to tell the CP was planted by an infiltrator... so why won't they? Don't Reddit Admins have an obligation themselves to inform LE about an account posting CP anywhere at all on their site?

“Rather than organizing for change, individuals seek to enact a statement about their own righteousness,” Chomsky writes in “How (Not) to Challenge Racist Violence.” “They may boycott certain products, refuse to eat certain foods, or they may show up to marches or rallies whose only purpose is to demonstrate the moral superiority of the participants. White people may loudly claim that they recognize their privilege or declare themselves allies of people of color or other marginalized groups. People may declare their communities ‘no place for hate.’ Or they may show up at counter-marches to ‘stand up’ to white nationalists or neo-Nazis. All of these types of ‘activism’ emphasize self-improvement or self-expression rather than seeking concrete change in society or policy. They are deeply, and deliberately, apolitical in the sense that they do not seek to address issues of power, resources, decision making, or how to bring about change.”

Review of a book about conservative black SCOTUS judge Clarence Thomas by ISaidWhatISaid in Justice_v_Injustice

"Robin’s argument here follows a logic not dissimilar to that of his previous book, The Reactionary Mind, published in 2011 and reissued last year in a substantially revised edition that covered Trump’s election. Arguably the animating spirit of that book was that the Left must resist its chronic tendency to underestimate the enemy. The Reactionary Mind urged readers to remember that its own title was not a contradiction in terms, that conservatives don’t only defend existing privilege—they have ideas, and it would be a mistake not to take them seriously."

The left will never take the right seriously because that means granting them a courtesy that the left can't bring itself to grant. Thus refusing to be self-reflective about their own reactionary tendencies.

You wouldn't get a TV show Perhaps not a whole TV show but Christine Jorgensen was definitely a media sensation in her day and age. Media interest in trans people is not a recent thing. It goes all the way back to the freak shows with the bearded lady. What is new is cis people being expected to be fake-nice towards trans people, even while being genuinely repulsed by them. Society has decided that it's a great thing to force people to be fake-nice in the name of (fake-)tolerance and (non-)acceptance. Nevermind the fact that people aren't stupid, they know they're being pandered to and this only makes them feel more alienated and isolated because no one is telling them the truth straight up but they can sense it in the air and they can read it between the lines. Hearing what is unsaid it far worse than having it said outright.

It was very different back then. Those doctors may have been misguided but I think back then they genuinely thought they were helping people. Remember, this was at a time before secularism, when it was literally illegal to be gay and society was a lot more harsh, close-knit and judgemental than it is today. A lot of the transitioning requirements back then could not realistically be met in this day and age, there's too much entitlement, too much impatience, too much consumerism and too much of a blind trust in the medical establishment to fix any and every problem, pronto. There is no way you can realistically stealth while having a public profile and advertising your transition on all the social media for the whole world to see, even if the end result is "unclockable". Gender doctors almost want their patients to be out in the social media in order to use them as walking talking billboards to promote their plastic surgery services. It's very cynical and I have no hopes of this ever getting better, it's only going to get worse with ever more extreme surgeries and procedures. There will never be a "medical scandal" as JK Rowling claims because society wants to turn this into business as usual. If you have a shitty transition, SFW, just detrans and try again. Too much money to be made for anyone to hit the brakes.

Just because something unlawful happened doesn't mean the victim is able or willing to sue. Using the law is really expensive and trannies are generally poor. Organizations like the ACLU will not go after doctors, they're only busy fighting the culture war. Then there is the aspect I touched upon in my other comment, the fact that the online trans community worships doctors and treats them like demi-Gods. It has to do with the psychological attitudes of the online trans community towards the medical profession. If you read the trans subreddits, every time someone has a negative experience with a surgery, all the other trannies gather around and assure the botched victim that they just need to get even more surgery to fix the problems that the previous surgery caused. They brainwash each other to believe that human bodies can be endlessly assembled and disassembled and that every medical problem is fixable if you just throw enough money at it. Trans people are not going to take on the system that created them, they worship that system and believe it can do no wrong. They are extremely invested in maintaining the system and enabling others to transition because that's how they validate themselves, by reliving their experience over and over again through others. Look at what happens to trannies on Youtube that discuss their botched surgeries. The online trans community avoids them like the plague. Those botched trannies never have a million followers on Youtube or Instagram. People only want to see the surgeries that went well, not the botched examples. Everyone wants to be Jazz Jennings, if your first SRS fails, just have another one, just throwing more money and more surgery at your problems. Polysurgery is actively enabled and encouraged in the online trans community.

You should go and watch some interviews with the plastic surgeons that perform these surgeries, I have and these doctors are practically worshipped by their patients as demi-Gods. People have been transitioning for decades, in the past under even more questionable circumstances than we have today and there were never any massive lolsuits back then either. If there were going to be any lolsuits they would've happened already. The courts all over the world are overwhelmingly pro-trans and so is SCOTUS. I don't think any imaginary grand class action suit that will put an end to transitioning will ever happen. We're only going to see more and more extreme examples of grotesque and beyond-nightmarish transitions, detransitions and retransitions, transracialism, trans-age/age-reversal, trans-species with animal-looking parts grown out of genetically modified human tissue (because if you can do phalloplasty with an armskin tortilla, why not use the same technique to make a tail for some otherkin freak that wants one and has money?), it's only gonna get worse and worse. We're just seeing the beginning of this, but I think it's a pandora's box that cannot be closed. I think the greedy lawyers and doctors who paved the way for transgenderism are gonna love it because once you get into trans-species, you are literally creating new life forms that you can patent and own and the Intellectual Property lawyers are going to love the legal shitshow that will eventually cause. TL;DR lawyers and the courts will never be anti-trans because they have to much to gain from enabling this.

Stallone is an awesome actor but this topic has nothing to do with that. These people we're talking about here are not taking these drugs for endurance but for misguided and often delusional vanity reasons. Others are taking them because estrogen is considered the new "chemsex" drug. The latter category are outright drug addicts plain and simple, but even they are validated and enabled by the online trans community.

"I know this very personally, as I have been an athlete, around athletes, and coaching athletes for 20 years in total"

Ergo, you are not an impartial neutral observer. You have a vested personal interest and profit-motive in continuing the steroid industry. Thank you for disclosing your conflict of interest.

"If you don't, or you are a total idiot, then yes you can fuck yourself up with them."

What you don't seem to understand is that modern medicine has to anticipate the fact that "total idiots" are going to take their drugs, and have to build safeguards against that. There are no safgeguards anymore because people are transitioning under an informed consent model. They are literally self-diagnosing and ordering drugs on their own from sketchy darkweb sites, and this destructive and dangerous practice is openly encouraged and promoted by the online trans community. This form of self-diagnosis and self-medication is in no way comparable to professional athletes that have to undergo medical check-ups and doping-tests to even be allowed to compete.

Just because you read the word "steroid", don't assume it's about you and what you do. It's not.

JK Rowling claims society is on brink of 'medical scandal' over transgender issues by 1donteven in politics

This book begs to differ, hormones definitely fuck you up. That's why they're selling them to trannies, because cis women figured out just how fucked up HRT was (all explained in the above book) and stopped taking them so they had to create a new market to dump their drugs. That new market was so-called "transkids" who are turned into lifelong HRT users.

There will be no lolsuits because everyone is transitioning under informed consent nowadays, so they've signed away their right to sue.

"As of this guide’s publication date, the undisputed leader of reverse image search is the Russian site Yandex. After Yandex, the runners-up are Microsoft’s Bing and Google. A fourth service that could also be used in investigations is TinEye, but this site specializes in intellectual property violations and looks for exact duplicates of images.". I had never heard of Yandex before.

He was basically making Youtube videos with edgelord content before there was even a civilian internet. He would've been a huge Youtube troll had he been alive today.

Exactly, when I was on Reddit there were certain Reddit users who consistently posted smart takes, and I went through their history to read all the other clever things they said in the past. It was fun to "get to know" a certain subredditor this way.

Reddit to me now feels like a joyless attempt at a party where everyone is fake-smiling and pretending to have fun when in reality they're only there because the host is their manager at work and they fear being put out on the market during the new reorganization if they don't show up and pretend to have a good time. The undercurrent of dread is honestly depressing.

Elon Musk is almost single y'all - he unfollowed Grimes on Twitter by ISaidWhatISaid in Transhumanism

This thread is NOT about whether Elon Musk supports trans rights or not, and I am sick and tired of how you GCs attempt to infiltrate literally any thread and inject it with your anti-trans agitprop, trying to bring up trans issues on threads that have absolutely nothing to do with your obsession. It's annoyingAF.

Listen to the amazing embelishing & soloing here OOOH YEEEAAAH! I would watch Smashing Pumpkin live videos on VCR & Billy would make these faces while soloing on songs like Geek USA, I was feeling that man. This is what I was learning to play at 18-19... and then I got RSI & had to quit :'(

This article was on Buzzfeed 6 years ago. Yes, believe it or not, Buzzfeed once used to allow publish articles such as this to be published on their site #nostalgia I remember back when this got posted some anarchist dumbasses online claimed that Buzzfeed publishing such an article was "McCarthyism" - having never experienced actual McCarthyism they obviously had no clue what they were on about. Maybe they have read this book in the mean time and gotten a clue.
