douchebaggery men who should not ever be with women ever misogyny PUA

PUAs invade OkCupid!

Honestly, this would freak me the fuck out too.

Over on Buzzzfeed, a couple of interesting pieces on the fine art of online pickup artistry.

Kelly Bourdet looks at some of the online PUA gurus and their teachings, noting that

Online pick-up artistry has taken the original aims of IRL pick-up — to develop general tactics and techniques for attracting and bedding women— one step further. One dehumanizing step further. Now, instead of “peacocking” (wearing gaudy outfits to demonstrate Alpha status) in bars and using tired negs, we have them deconstructing every aspect of online persona and communication to create sleek, marketing packages of human beings to sell to one another.

In an even more entertaining companion piece, Ouiser Boudreaux (AKA the Annals of Online Dating gal) reports on some of the actual terrible things these online PUAs write to women in an attempt to “neg” them into their IRL beds.  Like “nice headband, bitch,” or “Lol, you look like a space commando.” Or this little passive-aggressive masterpiece:

You nearly have a perfect lack of grace. What happens when you realize only the also ran hotties slum it in brooklyn? Somebody who says they’re not good at being surface and rattles off a list of authors read mostly in high school english classes is nothing but surface. Your profile is among the most trite and cliche i’ve come across. which is a compliment of sorts, though keep in mind, you’re not in kansas anymore. You know who else won’t deal with a narcissist? just look in the mirror to find the answer: another narcissist.

None of these worked, in case you’re wondering.

RE: Shadow

Yeah, I’ve mostly migrated to DC, when I read Big Two comics at all, but Nightcrawler always seemed pretty awesome. Unfortunately, the only major arc of his I read was when he was made a priest for conspiracy reasons and turned out to be the son of a demon. >:(

LBT, my video does actually have a transcription (I put closed captions on all my YouTube videos to make them as accessible as I can), but it is part of the video and the way you view the captions is to watch the video with the captions on. However, a long time ago someone on one of the asexual communities on Tumblr (which I am not on–haven’t joined Tumblr) reposted my Asexual Bingo video and included my embedded captions in a paste, adding in descriptions of the visuals. It is quite long, beware.
