Well, it looks as though the day we all knew was coming is finally here — the day the manosphere finally turned on the lady anti-feminists in their midst. Since even before Phyllis Schlafly, there have been anti-feminist women making a name for themselves by being all “Hey fellas! Look over here! I’m a woman and I don’t think I should have rights about shit.

If you want to get a TON of views on YouTube, be a woman and record a video titled “Why I’m Not A Feminist.” These women are often very popular, and many men like to point them out to feminists in order to say “Look! Not all women want rights and stuff! Some women think that is bad! Don’t you care about those women and what they want? Guess you’re a real hypocrite now, huh!”

A few weeks ago, Salon published an article about how “alt-right” women are starting to get a little frustrated with the way they are being treated by men.

White nationalist Tara McCarthy vented on Twitter about how she, as a woman, was being harassed by men who share her beliefs:

Women in the Alt Right are constantly harassed by low status anonymous trolls trying to put us in our place.

Women of all ages, who do or don’t have children, are harassed for various ‘reasons’.

The ultimate goal seems to be to bully us off the internet.

— Tara McCarthy 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄 (@TaraMcCarthy444) December 3, 2017

Men in the Alt Right are going to have to decide whether they will continue to passively/actively endorse this behavior, or speak out against it.

If you want more women speaking publicly about ethno nationalism, I suggest you choose the latter.

— Tara McCarthy 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄 (@TaraMcCarthy444) December 3, 2017

Guys, I’m not saying I can’t take any trolling or harassment on the internet, *obviously* I can. I’ve probably had more of it than most of you will see in a lifetime, and I’m still here. Not going anywhere. I’m not stating the above solely for my own personal benefit. — Tara McCarthy 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄 (@TaraMcCarthy444) December 3, 2017

The article also highlighted how Lauren Southern tried to explain why it was cool for her to not be married with babies, even though she was a “traditionalist.” That she should be able to do what she wants without being attacked for it. Interesting!

As you can imagine, a lot of men on the alt-right and in the manosphere were displeased by these women and others. “Why, they’re just like FEMINISTS after all!” they cried. Thus, they coined a new term — tradthot — a combination of “traditional” and “that ho over there” to describe these women.

Classy!

Noted loser misogynist Matt Forney wrote about this phenomenon over on Return of Kings:

While I am not opposed to women participating in politics per se, the reality is that the majority of these “tradthots” are wolves in sheep’s clothing. Beyond being unoriginal and bland, tradthots like McCarthy, Southern, and more appear to be subverting nationalism for their own ends. They are converging the alternative media into leftism, no different than what SJWs have done to video games and other industries.

His screed largely decries these women as “crypto-feminists” — some of whom he claims were even previously slutty, bisexual, not interested in having children, or as having formerly had sex with men of color. He even claims to have dated a woman who said she was one of these women, and then turned out to not like Donald Trump AT ALL!

ROK readers and contributors are more aware than most that tradthots are not to be trusted. For example, some time ago, I was involved with a woman who called herself “alt right” and who claimed to want a traditional marriage, yet was also a bisexual alcoholic with a rep for cheating on her boyfriends. Following our breakup, she began dating a left-wing skinhead, then suddenly disavowed the alt right for being too pro-Trump and “anti-Semitic.”

There is a classy graphic to go along with all of this, of course.

The king of Return of Kings himself, Roosh V, has been on about this for over a year now.

The new anti-feminist will bash SJWs and their censorship efforts with great vigor, but when it’s time for society to stop them from opening their legs to sexy alpha males, they throw a temper tantrum. When it’s time to force them adopt traditional behaviors of maintaining a home instead of merely agreeing to traditional ideas in theory, they reveal themselves to be feminists at heart and use SJW language that labels you a “misogynist” or “rapist.”

He even made a video about it earlier this month, in which he also describes having dated a woman who said she loved Trump, only to later find out she did not love Trump.

One of Roosh’s major issues here is that these women, who are not as wholesome as they claim to be, supposedly steal anti-feminist ideas from men like him, parrot them, and then take money from white knight beta orbiters who think they are sexy but also traditional. AND THEN MAKE WAY MORE MONEY AND GET MORE ATTENTION THAN HE DOES!

Rather than being good anti-feminists and not complaining about men treating them poorly, he suggests, they do exactly what feminists do whenever a man tells them what to do.

Curiously enough, towards the end, he actually suggests that it would be incredibly stupid for a woman to not be a feminist.

“There’s no such thing as a female anti-feminist. There’s only a woman constrained by the ability to do what she wants and a woman who is not. If she lives in the West and she has choice on what to do and who to date, why would she give that up to be trad? Why would a woman who has the ability to do whatever she wants artificially limit herself, unless she’s trying to show off?”

Now, granted — Roosh and these other men think that women ought to be constrained. But I guess they’re at least being honest by admitting that women — even those who claim to be anti-feminist — would not actually enjoy that.

Naturally, Andrew Anglin of the Daily Stormer is also very upset about the tradthots.

There are usually downsides to trying to belong to a club that doesn’t want you for a member.

Now, I don’t know if these women are doing it for attention. It could be that, but it could also be that there are just a lot of Serena Joys out there — who think that if they side with the anti-feminist men, that they will be treated better by them than all those other women are. That they will be protected and shielded and allowed to do what they want without facing criticism from these men the way feminists do. This, clearly, is not the case.

Do I think any of these women will suddenly realize that the men on their side actually hate them as much as they hate us and decide to become feminists? Probably not — and honestly I kind of hope not, because many of them are pretty damned racist and we don’t need that shit. But perhaps this should serve as a lesson to all — joining clubs that don’t want you as a member rarely works out all that well.

And now it is your open thread!

      What horseshit — from the Assmouth administration and from Fox. First, I distinctly remember an administration spokesperson, when asked about Don Jr.’s activities, saying “You’ll have to ask the transition team.” and then smugly saying that the transition team doesn’t exist anymore. So if the Trump folks want to abdicate responsibility for the transition team, and Mueller wants their records, it seems like the Trump administration has no say in the matter. Tough shit.

      Also, “people responsible for foreign policy” on the transition team probably included Mike Flynn and Don Jr. And if Mueller wanted the documents, he probably subpoenaed them. And if the GSA — who does everything by the book — got a subpoena, I’m sure they made sure they adhered to all laws governing turning over documents — redacting documents might apply to making them public, but it most certainly does not apply to responding to a subpoena. These people are full of shit and getting desperate.

      • SayItWithWookies

        The Trumpists are gonna have a little trouble justifying how Mueller did anything improper:

        Axios has asked the Special Counsel’s Office for comment and will update this story with the response.

        The transition sources said they were surprised about the emails because they have been in touch with Mueller’s team and have cooperated.

        “They ask us to waive NDAs [nondisclosure agreements] and things like that,” a second source said. “We have never said ‘no’ to anything.”

        So the transition team said it was fine and placed no restrictions on Mueller getting the emails — they just didn’t know they weren’t going to be the ones to hand them over. Gee, given that, it’s pretty odd that the transition team folks are mad that Mueller got all the emails — sounds like the transition was planning on not really complying, and now they’re pissed that Mueller made an end-run around their tactic.

    “We only want to date women who agree with us about politics, racism, how they’re inferior, and how everyone but is is also inferior. And if they’re not absolutely 100% in agreement with what we want them to be like, we will continue to impose arbitrary assholish restrictions on them until they push back, at which point we will denounce them as fakes who were taking advantage of us.” Have I got that right? And if so, have these fuckin’ geniuses figured out why they’re mad at the world yet?

    “One of Roosh’s major issues here is that these women, who are not as wholesome as they claim to be, supposedly steal anti-feminist ideas from men like him, parrot them, and then take money from white knight beta orbiters who think they are sexy but also traditional.”

Also, too, I think “prescriptive grammarians” are nasty little assholes, who have swallowed the bourgeois agenda. I don’t want to hang out with them or espouse their values. And once you reach that point, starting a sentence with “and” is no problem.

    The far-right Freedom Party has secured the key posts of foreign, interior and defence in Austria’s new coalition government for its nominees.

    Governing with the conservative People’s Party, the move makes Austria the only country in Western Europe to have a far-right party in power.

          A serious answer:

          A lot of these groups/”movements”/”thinkers” etc. have self confidence that is inversely proportional to their knowledgeof the subject they’re so confident about. They therefore start to emulate cargo cults in their behaviour: they act like what they imagine intellectuals, experts and thinkers behave like, which includes concocting jargon and neologisms, to convince others and themselves that they are profound. It leads to lots of Gordian knots of self contradiction and bullshit because they are less concerned with being intellectually rigorous than with seeming intellectual.

    So help me out here. Roosh, Anglin, Forney, and the rest of their ilk see themselves as the alphas right? They are not betas, because they see themselves as the top of the chain. So why do they get upset when all the nasty, nasty whores fuck the alphas? Does that not mean that they are getting laid on the regular? Being alphas and all it should mean they are getting all the strange they can handle.

    What am I missing here?

    • Daniel

      They fluctuate.

      Depending on what argument they want to make they are alphas or betas- so alpha-aspirants. If they want to brag about all the notches they have, they’re alphas. If they want to whine about being lonely or the real oppressed minority they become beta.

      I didn’t watch the whole taping of “Saint” Elliot, but I do remember seeing him saying something like, “You were supposed to be interested in me, because I am an alpha…” and seriously, if you have to declare yourself one, you aren’t. I think that they fear that they are betas and that they will be taken advantage of in any relationship, paying for the babies of the alphas is one of the big obsessions. I think if you invert a bunch of stuff they say, you can see what’s going on in their minds better.
      And I’ll never put in the work to be able to explain them as well as Robyn does.

      • shivaskeeper

        Even alphas and betas are their own made up terms though. They have no meaning in society outside their forums, books, and blog posts. They really don’t.

        That’s one of things I puzzle over.

          Possibly in romance novels, or the romance novel reading communities.

            Interesting. Someone I have the misfortune to know who I suspect is something of a sociopath managed to ratfuck the Grammies and get herself nominated for one, despite having no discernible talent. There were some serious discussions at the top level about how to deal with this.

            Good deal. The person I mentioned infiltrated the Grammy nominating process by intensive lobbying of voters through email and social media, in the less prominent category of “Americana”. Many of the people who voted for her nomination later admitted to never having listened to her music…which I completely believe, because if they had, they would’ve either died laughing or been appalled.

    • shivaskeeper

      You shouldn’t care in the abstract, because these are toxic motherfuckers with thoughts that are stupid. But you should care because these toxic motherfuckers are getting their thoughts into the mainstream. They are going to be driving more and more policy and decisions. With the overlap into the Nazi party and the racists they have to be, not understood, but monitored.

      You have to know what they are thinking so you can combat them more effectively.

    • theCryptofishist

      Not clear. (To me, at least.) I assume she wants us to be aware of them, in case of our running into them in the world and having to deal with them. Possibly she is more focused on us women knowing about them, because we are more vulnerable. I’m guessing that she’s more interested in your knowledge of their existence, than in reading every tiny detail.

    Somewhat related, I saw a special on CNN today where they got a bunch of Trump voters who no longer like him together and asked them why they don’t support him anylonger. The reasons were obvious ones they SHOULD HAVE PICKED UP ON BEFORE THE ELECTION OR MAYBE EVEN 20 FUCKING YEARS AGO, I shouted at my television.

    Kinda like the dipshit in Robyn’s post:

    For example, some time ago, I was involved with a woman who called herself “alt right” and who claimed to want a traditional marriage, yet was also a bisexual alcoholic with a rep for cheating on her boyfriends.

    Putting aside the bisexual thing for a moment, I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess this person isn’t very good when it comes to making decisions in life.

    • Ellie

      It was 1980 for me – first time I’d seen or heard ol’ Dinky Digits. He was being interviewed by Tom Brokaw and he was questioned about the Bonwit Teller building. I yelled at the television then, also. I yelled, “What do you mean you don’t know which way something is going to fall when you demolish it?!” And I wondered why Brokaw wasn’t asking the same question. I realized then that this “Trump” person was a liar and a cheat. I learned over the ensuing years that he is also a thief, bigot, racist, misogynist, bully, con man, draft dodging coward, and since he threw his hat in the Presidential ring, I’ve also learned that he is a chicken hawk who will sell out his country to the highest bidder.

      I have no patience for those who say, “I didn’t know he was like that.” Where have they been, in a cave with some guy named Dave?

        I’m not sure. I’ll ask and check them out myself. He’s a really good, natural player, but has no ambition to be a virtuoso…his goal is to be that bass player who hangs in the pocket, sees that the groove doesn’t wander, and makes the whole band sound better. It’s an admirable goal, IMO.

    “If living well is the best revenge against those who wish you ill, then Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn just provided a masterclass in doing so.

    After Vonn said she was proud to be heading to the Olympics to “represent the people of the United States, not the president,” Trump’s base immediately went into characteristically disgusting attack mode.

    The “Fox and Friends” crew lashed out at Vonn — an American sports champion — as “very un-American,” and claimed Vonn’s statement that she would not visit the White House was an “affront” to the honor of such an invitation. Even more repulsively, after Vonn sustained an injury during a race in Switzerland, conservative blog Gateway Pundit and other Trump fans on Twitter offered nasty cheers.

    “That’s what we call the ‘Trump Effect,’” one of them said.

    Well, now we have the Vonn Effect: using the anger and spite of pathetic right wing trolls to propel you to victory.

    On Saturday, Vonn came back from her injury to clinch her 78th World Cup win, becoming the second oldest woman to do so and inching closer to the all-time record.

    circles. The words aren’t banned, they simply suggested that you might
    want to try a different approach to say the same thing. She has a
    paper coming out with several of the terns that are on the list and she
    is under no obligation to change them.

    WTF is wrong with these christofascists?
    “Ohio bill would prohibit abortions in Down syndrome cases”
    http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/14/health/ohio-down-syndrome-abortion-bill/index.html

    “The bill prohibits abortions after tests reveal Down syndrome in a fetus or if there’s “any other reason to believe” the fetus has the genetic condition. A person performing an abortion in such a case could face a fourth-degree felony charge, and physicians could lose their licenses. The woman seeking the abortion would not be held accountable, according to the bill.”

    Ohio House Bill 214 passed the state Senate on Wednesday by a vote of 20-12.”

    This is a chromosomal abnormality (extra chromosome 21). With lots of problems in life. If the christofascists want to keep their child with future Down syndrome, who is stopping them? But “ban” abortion of these fetuses? How is that different than general abortion ban? In their distorted reality, women (according to law) can abort a child up to 24 weeks old but NOT if it has Down syndrome? Are they so FUCKING STUPID AND GULLIBLE?

    To take this line of reasoning a step further, I would like to point out for the benefit of my fellow MFATOWAM-NL’ers that there are wimmens who claim to make sammidges and yet when I am suitably ensconced upon a Barcalounger or other appropriate reclining chair, upon sticking sticking out my hand to reach for a sammidge There Is No Sammidge There,!!!!1!,1,1,!11!,11!1!

    (N.B.: MFATOWAM-NL = Men Farting Around Their Own Way at Mind-Numbling Length.)

    You may think I am exaggerating but I am not!1!,!,11<11,1!,

    !

    One of these femirams in ewes' clothing even handed me a PB&J sammige without the J, no doubt at the instigation of George Soros because of the whole "J" thing.

    Keep your eyes out for these TradSammidgeThots infilingtraitoresses. They are everywhere! They could be your girlfriend or your cousin or your sister, Chad, you cuck.

    I would make a video about it but I am still trying to grow an impressive neckbeard. Something which I cannot do BECAUSE I AM NOT GETTING ANY SAMMIDGES, DAMMIT!!!!,1<!,1!,1!1!

        • The Militant Homosexual Agenda

          I’ve only seen a couple of Black Mirror but the one with the woman trying to get to the wedding, in a world where one’s entire worth as a human is based on how many “likes” you get on social media? That wasn’t a warning of future events. It’s actually fucking happening as we speak!

  • Angela Ruzzo

    Whenever I hear a man refer to any woman as a whore, I am fairly certain that he has been frequenting prostitutes and maybe not paying them, or maybe he can’t afford the best ones, or he would like to visit a prostitute but is afraid of STDs and the cops and what his wife would say about it. When they refer to a woman as a slut, it often means that she has had more and better sex than he has, and she has let him know this, and made comparisons.

        It’s fun now that we have good birth control. It wasn’t much fun before then. I remember reading “Forever Amber” when I was in high school (I read it because the Catholic Church banned it) and she was an unrepentant slut, but she kept having babies and being left at starvation’s door by the fathers, it was very off-putting.

          Nope. It’s free.

          • h4rr4r

            Then you can’t be a whore. Prostitution is the trade of sex for monetary or other considerations. Sorry, you can only be a slut.

          • FukuiSanYesOta

            I’ll take it.

    • The Militant Homosexual Agenda

      And they never seem to focus on all the men these sluts are having sex with. It’s always, attack the women rather than analyze what characteristics the men have that they are lacking.

            This is pretty good, but a couple of notes

            1. “Instead of making waves, he would just rather shrug and walk the other way.”

            It depends. We chose our battles. Mostly I’ll walk away from fights thay don’t matter much, but if it does matter, watch out. I know how to enlist allies and line up ducks and defeat you before you even know there’s a fight.

            2. “Since he doesn’t have a desire to be the leader or to stand out, why bother belonging to a group?”

            Not quite. I work very well alone but I also work well in groups when the group is focused on accomplishing something and supporting one another. I don’t even mind leading such a group.

            The groups I hate are the ones that are about jockeying for position.

            To be honest the same qualities make it hard for me to be the boss. I have difficulty with people who need to be told what to do. Its what they call a growing edge for me.

            Overall 9/10.

      They are Nazis. Plain and simple. We know it, they know it, almost everyone out there knows it. They re brand as “alt-right” to avoid the worst connotations of the word. That anyone lets them get away with that and allows them to decide the words we will use to describe them is part of the problem here.

      who knows what that asshat means, but there are non-racist skins (based on the british skins of the 1970s)…the racist ones co-opted the look, not the other way ’round.

    Why do so many men confuse the terms “whore” and “slut”? Let’s get this straight.

They would probably rather be the CEO of Exxon and give up whoring, but that is not an option for them. A slut is a person who enjoys offering another person(s) the temporary use of their sexual organs in exchange for their own sexual pleasure as often as they can find someone to participate in the exchange. They might enjoy being the CEO of Exxon, but this would not change their behavior. Which one of these two sounds more like a man?

    • Raan

      So, the mainstream Republicans who did it for their donors are the whores and the Teabaggers are the sluts?

      • Angela Ruzzo

        That’s a fair analysis.

      I’m a slut, not a whore. But I accept being called either.

    • MizzMazz

      But if you’re CEO of EXXON, you might end up being Rex Tillerson. Pass. I’ll keep my slutty job at the Porno Store.

          • MizzMazz

            You know what’s fun about working at the Porno Store? Estimating how long it’s going to take to see some uptight jerks from my last job to darken the door as customers. I saw two on my second day. Would I rat on them or give them shit for it? Hell no, that wouldn’t be professional. ;)

          • FukuiSanYesOta

            I thought you were joking. Now I want to hang out and drink beer with you.

          • MizzMazz

            Absolutely, if you ever find yourself in the Monterey area. I would be delighted to buy you a beer. :)

          • Angela Ruzzo

            I was in the Monterey area once…I would love to live there, but Jeeze is housing expensive! I fell in love with Santa Cruz…and Monterey was my second choice.

          • MizzMazz

            It is bloody expensive. My beloved wants us to move away, where we can live on his Social Security, and I chafed at that for a while, but I finally saw reason, and when we get enough money to finance the move, we are going to check out Pueblo CO – we like what we’ve seen there on paper. It’s beautiful here, but there is a nasty underbelly of poverty which I fear is only getting worse.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            I live in central Missouri, where I own (almost) a 2000 sq ft house on a 1/3 acre lot in a rural area just outside the city limits of a college town with 100,000 permanent residents (plus 35,000 students) and my house is appraised at $135,000. The exact same house on the same sized lot in Santa Cruz would cost about $2 million, or maybe more. That’s just insane.

            Kansas City is not a bad place to live. There is good shopping and good transportation and liberal (occasionally corrupt) politics and good jobs, and cheap housing if you know where to look. It gets cold in the winter, but not as cold as Colorado. They also have a very good public recreation system with lots of lakes and rivers you can fish in, and lots of public exercise facilities and hiking trails, and a very good Art Museum, if those ring your bells. There are also lots of concerts and theatrical events and sporting events. However, I would not live there if I was an African American, as the police are notoriously racist.

          • MizzMazz

            That’s a big pad! Yeah, to get anything in Santa Cruz/Monterey, hell even Seaside, you’re looking at a ton of money.
            Mr Mazz (Oh, he will hate that ;) ) has been on me for years to leave Cali, but I was stubborn. It was Anna Elizabeth who told me about Pueblo (and we are open to other places) so I did a bit of research, and was pleased to find they have some nice pieces of water and parks. We have an okay arts scene here, but it’s mostly the touristy shit; if you want the real deal, you go to San Fran or whatever.
            Now that I don’t work for the Federal Gov’t anymore, I have taken a big pay loss, but my conscience is better for it. Porno Store is a far more honest job. Have a good night, and again, lovely to talk with you.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            Yes, it is big…it’s way too big for just me, but it was a foreclosure and I rather lost control when I saw it because it was so cheap and had so many windows…I love lots of windows and lots of fresh air. I didn’t stop to think how long it takes to clean such a big house. I keep 3 rooms closed off and don’t use them, and I feel guilty about that, because there are large families in Japan who live in far less space than I have. My last house had 1400 sq feet and that was just about perfect. The one before that had 850 sq ft and I was quite happy there. I don’t know what I was thinking when I bought such a big house.

          • h4rr4r

            In 2017 people go to the porno store? Why?

            Have they not heard of the internet? I say this as a man who bought Hitachi’s most famous product as a Christmas gift.

          • MizzMazz

            Honestly, I think some people get off on the exhibitionism/naughty thrill. We have the private viewing booths, and a theater. I think the sleeze factor is definitely a thing. I have only been there a little shy of a month, but we have some regulars who are really nice people, and some actually clean up after themselves!
            ETA: Lelo products are fantastic too.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            You make an interesting point. I was in Amsterdam once and walked through the Red Light District, where everything is out in the open and there is no sleaze factor. It was surprisingly un-sexy.

          • MizzMazz

            Same with Munich. Signs outside just said ‘Sex Shop’ and could be right next to a bakery or something. You could also find magazines with full frontal nudity (men and women) in food stores, and no one cared. It’s just different over there. One of the best things I experienced over there was the afternoon tradition of having a nice cup of coffee or tea, and a piece of cake, just because.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            Jesus, do I miss Europe. Just sitting at a sidewalk cafe with a cup of cafe au lait and a brioche and watching people walk by…I can’t do that anywhere in the town where I live in the US. I could do it in New Orleans, but not in the Midwest. You can do it in New York City…with pizza.

            Last time I was in the UK was 3 years ago, and I sat at a sidewalk cafe in front of a 14th century cathedral and drank beer and discussed world politics and English history with 3 complete strangers while eating fish and chips. I can’t do that in Missouri. Sigh…

          • MizzMazz

            They try to do that here, but it’s just not the same. I’m glad that when I had some extra money I used it to travel a bit, and see a tiny slice of the rest of the world. I often wonder how many problems we could solve if USA people ventured out and saw other countries. I know it helped me.
            If I had Powerball money, I would just pick up and go all over – we have such a wonderful world, and so much to see and do, and so much to NOT DESTROY! Okay, deep breath…enough internet for tonight. Lovely talking with you, Angela.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            America would be an entirely different nation with an entirely different culture if the people traveled more. I was SO LUCKY to have parents who loved to travel and who paid for me to travel all over the world back in the days when travel was relatively cheap (Europe on $20 a day!), and before I was grown up and had to pay for it myself. We went to Mexico when I was only 5 years old…and it changed my life. I had never seen such poverty or so much history in Missouri…it overwhelmed me, and I was just a little child.

            If I were rich I would travel all the time…why buy houses and apartments in different countries when you can rent them and not have to deal with the taxes and accountants, etc.? I might buy a cottage in Cornwall with a view of the sea and use it as a base…or maybe a villa on the Costa Brava and do the same…but this is just a dream. Fifty years ago you didn’t need a lot of money to do this, but things have changed, and now I am old and need certain comforts.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            There are a lot of interesting toys there…some of which are not self-explanatory so it is useful to ask questions and get live feedback from other customers and the employees. I only did this twice, but it was a good learning experience. The online experience is less trustworthy.

            “That’s what they call them. They don’t call them ‘fake schwanzes’ or whatever, they call them ‘marital aids.’ Kind of an odd term, right? How many marriage-related issues have ever been solved by the use of a ‘marital aid?’

            “‘Honey, I know you want to see your parents for Thanksgiving, but my parents are already expecting us. I don’t know what to do about it. … Wait a second, … let’s ask the 12-inch purple dong! Thank god we have this marital aid to help us through the rough patch in our relationship!'” – Christian Finnegan

            Good point. Of the 4 married couples I know who have ongoing marital problems, ALL FOUR have problems related to money issues, and secondarily division of labor issues, and sex issues come third.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            I have been in a porno store exactly twice, both times to rent movies for a bachelorette party because nobody else at the party had the balls to do it, so I volunteered. Those are some cool places, I had no idea there were so many different sex toys. It’s very educational.

          • MizzMazz

            I asked here some days ago for information so I could educate myself about the various products and such, and as usual, Wonketteteers came through.Bookmarked a couple of websites, and got the Big Book of Sex Toys. This community rocks.

          He’s actually not that smart. He’s one of those interesting products of British public schools: he has good manners, he’s a bit charming, he’s read a lot, he knows Latin and Greek (and can do things like recite Thucydides from memory). In the UK, all these things read as “smart,” but he’s actually a fucking moron. Just look at how he handled his attempt to replace Cameron. Or his work as Foreign Secretary.

          At this point, Whitehall is quietly telling other governments to ignore anything Boris says, and praying he doesn’t do anything stupid like reciting Kipling in a Burmese temple (again).

    Ruth Espiricueta, a first-grade teacher at Monte Cristo Elementary School in Edinburg, Texas, asked her students this week to write a letter to Santa Claus about something they want and something they need, after a lesson about the difference between the two. When school was dismissed for the day, Espiricueta began reading the letters and was taken aback in particular by one student’s note.

    The 7-year-old girl wrote to Santa, “I have [been] good this day. This Christmas I would like a ball and a food. I need a [blanket].”

            Nothing like that. Just… dark. Dealing with some heavy real-world stuff. None of the ponies are unflawed, and that sometimes causes issues, but the overarching theme is that you can work on those flaws. You don’t have to let them define who you are. And if you cause a problem it’s up to YOU to own it and maybe even fix it. Good lessons for dark times.

    Women being anti-feminist is old news and, frankly, boring. The newly awakened womens’ rights movement of the 1960s and 1970s was met by the likes of Marabel Morgan and her book “Total Woman.” (That’s the one that told you to meet your husband at the door wearing Saran Wrap) Since then we’ve had The Submissive Wife, Fascinating Womanhood, and lord knows what all self-help books telling women to embrace their natural passivity and build up their fragile menfolk. It’s hard to get upset over a subset of wackadoodles who are just now learning a tune I’ve heard for over 50 years. One hopes that these particular young men and women will grow up, but some people never do.

        Never heard of her or her Saran Wrap fetish but, ladeez, here’s a clue from an actual guy:

        Saran Wrap is not a turn-on.

        I loath and detest Saran Wrap.

        Every time I try to use it, I wind up getting everything balled up in itself.

        And then I cut open a vein trying to cut off a length of it with the handy built-in cutting edge.

        Which length then gets struck into a clump that I can’t untangle because I am bleeding and so on and so forth.

        So I guess what I am getting at is that Saran Wrap does not equate to sexy.

      I dunno… really, I dunno. Toxic masculinity is a real problem. Violence, especially but not exclusively directed against women and marginalized populations; patriarchy, racism, homophobia, ableism; white nationalism, America First seem to have roots in it.

      Maybe examining these pathological expressions might give some insight.

      Maybe not.

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/dec/16/call-off-brexit-bullies-or-face-defeat-tory-peers-tell-theresa-may

    “After 11 Conservative MPs joined opposition parties to inflict a humiliating loss on the government last week, Tory grandees are warning that the spirit of rebellion will spread to the Lords unless May shows she respects parliament and decisively rejects those with “extreme views” in her own party.”

    Translated into American-English:
    11 GOPers voted with the Dems in the House and beat down on the Maybot. Now GOP senators tell the Maybot to keep the Fox News/Breitbart on a short leash or they too will vote with the Dems.
    One can infer that British democracy is light years ahead of the American version, since no self-respectable GOPer would ever vote Democratic. They may abstain but vote with the Dems? That would be sacrilege.

    E.P.A. Contractor Has Spent Past Year Scouring the Agency for Anti-Trump Officials

    One of the top executives of a consulting firm that the Environmental Protection Agency has recently hired to help it with media affairs has spent the past year investigating agency employees who have been critical of the Trump administration, federal records show.

    The firm, Definers Public Affairs, based in Virginia, specializes in conducting opposition research, meaning that it seeks to find damaging information on political or corporate rivals.

    A vice president for the firm, Allan Blutstein, federal records show, has submitted at least 40 Freedom of Information Act requests to the E.P.A. since President Trump was sworn in. Many of those requests target employees known to be questioning management at the E.P.A. since Scott Pruitt, the agency’s administrator, was confirmed.

      For the dumbs ( me )

      In fiction, a MacGuffin (sometimes McGuffin or maguffin) is a plot device in the form of some goal, desired object, or other motivator that the protagonist pursues, often with little or no narrative explanation. The MacGuffin’s importance to the plot is not the object itself, but rather its effect on the characters and their motivations. The most common type of MacGuffin is a person, place, or thing (such as money or an object of value). Other more abstract types include victory, glory, survival, power, love, or some unexplained driving force.

      The MacGuffin technique is common in films, especially thrillers. Usually the MacGuffin is the central focus of the film in the first act, and thereafter declines in importance. It may reappear at the climax of the story but sometimes is actually forgotten by the end of the story. Multiple MacGuffins are sometimes derisively identified as plot coupons

    Russia could cut off internet to NATO countries, British military chief warns

    Russia could try to sever global underwater communications cables, potentially triggering catastrophic repercussions for the economy and way of life in the West, the head of Britain’s military has warned.

    The vast majority of global internet and telephone traffic relied on by Western governments, economies and civilians is carried by cables that crisscross the world’s seabeds, according to analysts.

    “He [Putin] said very nice things about what I have done for this country in terms of the economy, but he said also some negative things in terms of what is going on elsewhere,” Trump said.

    CHICKEN PIE IS GO!

    Today is a good Saturday

    • janecita

      Recipe, please:-)

      • FukuiSanYesOta

        OK, ok

        1/2 cup of sour cream mixed with an egg in a bowl
        12 1/2 oz of flour and 1 1/2 tsp salt
        Stick and a half of butter cut up into little (1/4 inch?) bits.

        mix up the fucking flour with the salt for a bit in yer food processor. Put in the fucking butter. Pulse again until butter looks like bits of rice or some shit.

        Then dump in half the sour cream stuff. Mix for a few pulses. Stick in the rest, then pulse again.

        It’ll be dough. Get that fucker out. Roll it a bit, then make two (2!) disks about 4″ across. Wrap those cunts in plastic and stick ’em in the fridge. Put a timer on for an hour.

        NEXT!

        Brown a bunch of chicken. Four chicken breasts is good. When all that shit is browned, put it on a plate.

        Chop up your leeks and whatevs.

        WHEN the hour is up, take dough out of fridge. Leave it for 15 or so. Roll it out. Put one circle in a 9″ pie plate, and just leave the other circle. Put them on a parchment-line baking sheet and whang those cockfucks back in the fridge.

        Now, whang 3 cups of chicken broth, the chicken, the leeks, and a bay leaf back in a pot. Get it to a fucking simmer and leave it until the chicken is done.

        Take chicken out. Sieve broth.

        Bang half a stick of butter in a pan and melt it. Put in 1/4 cup flour. Whizz it around a bit until it looks cool. Throw in a couple of cups of that broth you sieved and a bit of half and half. That fucker will thicken.

        Take a cup of that, mix it with the chicken and leek and shit, and put it in the dough-lined pie plate. Slap the other bit of dough on the top and make it look fucking fancy. Make sure to cut some slits in it. Put egg wash on it. Stick it in the oven.

        That’ll take, oh, I dunno, 40 mins or so? Oven should be at 450. Turn it down to 380 after 20.

        The rest of the broth/butter mix you can turn in to tasty gravy.

        And that is how you make a chicken pie.

          • Catstro

            I actually didn’t! I saw your recipe and thought that it looked like my mom’s recipe, just a bit fancier (she uses a tiny bit of onion instead of leek, and the only butter is dotted on the top of the chicken before the second crust is put on). I thought it might be a British thing that just happened to be similar. Very cool! Enjoy your pie, and thanks for the condolences.

          All so that Pence, Cruz and the other apocalypse cultists can have Nazi Jesus come home from college and kill all the Jews after they (either the Jews or the “soldiers of God’s army” — namely, the U.S. military) kill all the Muslims.

        IMHO, the rule prevents Mueller’s discharge simply as an act of will, presidential or otherwise, or without any basis in fact, I. E., a showing on the basis of evidence that Mueller committed [1] misconduct, [2] was derelict in his duties, [3] became incapacitated, [4] had an actual conflict of interest, or [5] that there was some other good cause.

        EDIT: In the event of a dispute, the issues would have to be decided by a court, which might possibly issue a temporary restraining order to maintain the status quo until the issue of just cause for removal has been litigated.

They contribute absolutely zero worth to society. They don’t even build a product worth buying. They don’t even build products that are not worth buying — because they don’t have any actual products at all!

      Their whole schtick is literally just talking shit about people. Why is there a market for this? I’d say “asking for a friend,” but I’m really not. It infuriates me that a prick like Milo drives a goddamn Lambo, while Wonkette is still begging for beer money and there are people on this very board (myself included) struggling to find an honest day’s work.

      Why doesn’t Soros or the like actually bankroll liberal outlets and independent commentators like Mercer does? Is that their real source of money (and sole source, plus maybe some chump change thrown in by the rubes)?

        NY state has made it free, if your family AGI is under $100k. What’s really interesting is that our private universities have cut their prices or offered more grants.

        • 🍁 Girl Guide Salute 🖖🏻

          Free as in literally $0? Student fees and other shit really jacks up the price.

    CQ, CQ. Has anyone heard from Anna Elizabeth?
    CQ is a code used by wireless operators, particularly those communicating in Morse code, (— · — · — — · —), but also by voice operators, to make a general call (called a CQ call). Transmitting the letters CQ on a particular radio frequency is an invitation for any operators listening on that frequency to respond. It is still widely used in amateur radio.

      Lord Jim has her e-mail, I think a couple other Wonkers do too (can’t remember who). I think I saw him say last night he was going to send out some well wishes and ask how she was doing.

      As for that acronym — also adapted into the name of Instant Messaging app and protocol ICQ, a play on words both of the Morse Code signal and the phrase “I seek you” (i.e. “I’m calling for you, you there?”) that it stands for. Popular at one point during the late-’90s/early 2000s heyday of instant messengers (AIM, MSN, Yahoo, all of which are now discontinued); it has since fallen out of favor in most of the West, but remains popular in (where else) Russia. Russia has a thing for ’90s Internet services, apparently. Remember LiveJournal? LiveJournal is yuge over there.

    Now Christie is mad about pictures of him going to the beach when he shut down the state.

    http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/gov-elect-poses-cutout-chris-christie-beach-51835396

    Some called Murphy’s action something you might expect on the campaign trail months ago, not weeks before the Democrat succeeds the Republican governor on Jan. 16.

    Christie himself, according to NorthJersey.com, called it “disappointing because we’ve been so open and so welcoming to him, and not playing politics at all.”

    The pictures were taken while Murphy was at a gala held by the New Jersey Working Families Alliance, a group long critical of Christie that put up the near-life-size cutout as a prop. Murphy referred to the photos on the campaign trail, saying at multiple campaign stops, “We will not go to the beach ourselves.”

    Christie said Murphy’s action contradicted his repeated call to move past the nation’s divisive politics.

    “I just think it sends a really terrible message to people about if you say you want to bring people together and do all the rest of that, then what you should want to do is focus on the future and not be looking at the past,” Christie said.

    Carl Golden, a former press secretary for other former Republican governors, called the photos of Murphy a “remarkable lapse in judgment,” adding that it seemed at odds with his demeanor. He said the period between an election and a new governor is never easy, especially when predecessor and successor are from different parties.

    “But you have to get past that.” Golden said. “Posing for a picture like this does absolutely nothing to get past that. That I just think is pretty tacky.”

    Did ya’ll see today that Fox News called Washington Post news about Trump & Russia “fake news”? And New Pope told news people to quit being so sensationalistic. Funny to see news in the news. About time, though: we’ve taken journalism for granted too long. Maybe some folks will start asking “What is your source” when they hear or read an alarming story. Apparently Fox is finally losing viewers.

      Are they getting ready to rumble?

    • 🍁 Girl Guide Salute 🖖🏻

      That’s because Vince failed bigly with his stupid XFL. Another circus showman in the clown car of Donald “He Hate Me” Trump.

      WWE almost got boycotted the hell out of Canada when Vince did an idiotic storyline to rile up American jingoism during the early days of the Iraq war. Martin’s Liberals had said fuck no to joining the war effort (poutine was the original “freedom fries”), so Vince had two Canadian wrestlers named Lance Storm and Test play the role of smug heels from Canada called the “Un-Americans” who would go out to the ring and gloat about how much better Canada is. Edge, who is also Canadian, joined none other than Hulk Hogan in the final match that pitted the “Real American” and Edge the “defector” against the Un-Americans — on a July 4 broadcast, at that.

      But the overall sentiment of the storyline was so ridiculously over-the-top in hating on Canada and Canadians, I mean it was like Cold War levels of enmity towards Russia being replaced with friendly Canada who had the hubris of politely disagreeing with the all-powerful divinely-inspired shining turd on a hill. The fans took it way too seriously and started harassing Canadian fans and Canadian wrestlers (who threatened to quit, because this was shortly after the Chris Benoit incident and it was thought to be pretty damn insensitive with those wounds still, well, “raw”).

      Venues up north were incensed that their country was being portrayed as a wicked enemy on par with the Soviet Union, and demanded that the storyline either be called off or no more WWE at stadiums in Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, etc. Eventually, when facing a threat to his own bottom line and the loss of a good quarter of his talent lineup, Vince had to end it, which he did with that July 4th match, and then a brief nothingburger segment the following week where Edge and his countrymen say the usual “sorry” and then pretend like nothing happened. Then Harper got in and started bombing shit just like the ‘Muricans and the whole point was moot.

      TL;DR — Vincent Kennedy McMahon almost got the US into a fucking war with Canada.

      • jesterpunk

        To be fair Lance Storm did almost the same gimmick in WCW which was owned by Ted Turner at the time. That wasn’t Vince’s idea it was Lance Storm’s.

        • 🍁 Girl Guide Salute 🖖🏻

          Well then Vince showed some rare good judgment by calling it off.

          • jesterpunk

            Vince has done some really offensive things like Muhammad Hassan which started out well then became really offensive just to be offensive.

          • 🍁 Girl Guide Salute 🖖🏻

            Oh, I remember that. And the little PR guy next to him who was like Muslim version of Tattoo from Fantasy Island? Devari or something? Wouldn’t you know, the real wrestler isn’t even an Arab Muslim, he’s Italian. And the gay guys. Billy Gunn as one half of the will-they-or-won’t-they “couple” with Chuck Palumbo. The manager, I forget his name, he was billed as a hairdresser or some other stereotypical “gay” profession. He had those “chops” and looked like a gym rat version of Teen Wolf IIRC.

            That was just deliberate shock value to rile up the homophobic hillbilly audience and get (what else) “ratings” by having them smooch. Ironically it ended up backfiring, and caused Billo to accuse WWE of indoctrinating kids with the evil gay agenda.

            All the nitwits who say that entertainers and athletes should stay out of politics obviously didn’t seem to care when pro wrestling was beating up on gays, Muslims, and even Canadians.
