Thank You, Hater: An utterly charming response to Internet trolls, in song and dance!

Here’s an utterly charming response to internet trolls – in song and dance! Thanks, Clever Pie and Isabel Fay! And thanks, Jill Filipovic of Feministe, for passing on the link.

Unlike the videos from Armageddon1115 I posted earlier today, this one is really worth watching.

You can find the full lyrics on YouTube; here are some of my favorite bits:

Well hello friend Mister Insightful

Thank you for your comment on my little Youtube clip!

Most people say you’re cruel and spiteful,

But you’re right, how do I sleep at night? I am a massive prick. …

 

Some might say you are a…

Sexually aggressive, racist, homophobe, misogynistic,

Cowardly, illitterate, waste of human skin,

Sexually aggressive, racist, homophobe, misogynistic,

Cowardly, iliterat, waste of human skin,

But I say: thank you beautiful stranger. …

 

I’m really sure that if I met you

You probably wouldn’t rape me like you promised that you would

We are like “that”; I really get you

You’re right about that laughing kid, he is a total “cnut”.

 

You wished me cancer and misspelled “cancer”

But I know that it’s a metaphor. You hope that I will grow,

Just like the tumour you hoped would kill me

Inside the tits on which you said you’d also like a go.

Pure joy.

And let me offer my own personal thanks to all the Man Boobz haters! Hey, “guy who posts on The Spearhead and elsewhere as Nugganu,” every time you tell me you hope I “get … anally raped one day. for real, yeah,” in comments from this IP address, and this one, it gives me yet more reason to continue on, mocking and exposing you complete douchewaffles.

  1. Ruby Hypatia

    LOL. OMG, great video! Thanks David.

  2. Yeah, because the appropriate response to someone you disagree with is to hope they get raped. What a scumbag.

  3. Lordy, this video actually made my day. Thank you for for posting.

  4. Wonderful video. Now which of our regular trolls will be the first to pop up saying the singer is a stupid bitch who needs to die?

  5. Milkboy, Antsy, and Clueless n’ Nameless are hte only three remotely regular trolls at this point, I imagine, so my money’s on Milkboy.

  6. I vote for Buttman if we’re talking about hit-and-run.

  7. CassandraSays

    This is the best troll smackdown I’ve ever seen, and I would like to buy Ms Fay many, many drinks. The wanking gibbon cartoon was particularly perfect.

  8. To comment on the singer would require paying attention to the OP, and not just wandering and copypasting something irrelevant, so my vote is none of ‘em.

  9. Kendra, the bionic mommy

    This video is great. Not only does it make fun of all the douchebags stinking up the Internet, but it also has a catchy tune.

  10. ShadetheDruid

    This is awesome! I couldn’t stop laughing at the gibbon.. It fits the trolls so perfectly.

    Also, “Buttman” sounds like a really bad superhero (i’m expecting someone’s already made that joke, but hey).

  11. I am so going to use that song in the future

  12. Heh, “douchewaffle”.

  13. the gibbon, oh god, the gibbon

  14. Argenti Aertheri

    “so my money’s on Milkboy” — seconded, though I doubt he’ll manage to be perfectly ironic and instead just be perfectly nonsensical, but he’ll probably do a drive by trolling, the post obviously contains a video with women in it, not even he could miss that.

  15. This is great. I may have to steal it. :)

  16. “douchewaffle”.

    Sounds like an obscure Belgian branch of the SS.

    Popped collars on their uniforms, bermuda shorts, aviator sunglasses and slicked-back hair. You’d see them driving around in a lowered Volkswagon Thing with neon ground lights making duck-faces at the Allies.

  17. How is it that I could post this in comments and Jill could send you the link at the same time?

    Sigh. For once I thought I was the cool kid :-(

  18. The spurt of semen at the end was a nice touch. It isn’t often that I get to say that, but it’s true!

  19. Wow that was brilliant !! Need to take in more good stuff like this and not get down through my masochistic reading of the spearhead or daily mail. Scuse bad grammar- on my phone. One commentator on spearhead currently backing forced marriage which has been outlawed in the uk. Unbelievable – so thanks for the good humour

  20. It’s official.

    The Internets? They have been won.

    Congratulations, Ms. Fay.

  21. Ooh! Ooooh! Just before 3:00 — it’s Rickey!

  22. Argenti Aertheri

    “My name’s Mickey!” XD

  23. I’ve never smiled nearly so much after having to look at other people’s hate mail! THANKS INTERNET!

  24. OT, except in the sense that they are consistently troll-like in their behavior: Paul E. and his fanboys have a bit of a problem with respecting people’s chosen pronouns. This in a post by Phil in Utah attacking Ozy.

    TW for transphobia & homophobia wrapped into a big hate-burrito, and for general douchebaggery…

    Sounds more than fair to me, because what I am hearing here from TheUnknown is that every time any individual wants to depart from convention that I am forced to make some sort of adjustment in the lexicon to accommodate for it.

    Up the poop chute with that is right. If you have a dick, or the expected set of chromosomes that come with a dick, I am calling you “he.” I know, that is awfully bigoted and limiting of me, but you will have to deal with it.

    I don’t begrudge anyone the right to identify in any way they want, or to call themselves whatever made up name of the hour they choose. But that is where their freedom ends.

  25. Argenti Aertheri

    cloudiah —

    “Tell you what…we will refer to others how WE choose to, and you can stuff your demands right up your ass.

    Sound fair?” (from cloudiah’s link)

    So they can stuff their demands that we not refer to them as assholes? Fair is fair… (asshole is the most polite thing I can think of currently, I mostly just want to launch into a tirade based mostly around the many uses of the word fuck)

    Oh look, zombie Hilter’s been after their brains — “In my opinion there is no good Nazi, no good klansmen and no good feminist.” — closest they have to a feminist murderer is Solanas and she failed to actually kill anyone, so not remotely on par with Hitler or the KKK, thanks for playing, please try again! (Note to lurking MRAs, yes shooting people is bad, but not as bad as actually killing people, this should be fucking obvious)

    I think I need to watch the OP again after that.

  26. In social mileaus which lack any actual government censorship of speech, I notice that “Freedom of Speech” is generally invoked in the defense of ideas which have no actual arguments for them, as an attempt to frame one’s assholishness as a noble stand for free expression.

  27. ShadetheDruid

    “In my opinion there is no good Nazi, no good klansmen and no good feminist.”

    Is this another one of those guys who compares feminists to Nazis and Klan members, but is still super racist himself?

  28. Not to mention that the Nazis and the KKK are both anti-feminist organizations.

  29. That has to be the funnies, cleverest, answer to trolls that I’ve ever seen!

    Maybe we should post links to that every time they show up. It says it all really!

  30. The response I would give “Phil in Utah”:

    If I think you look like a Clancy, I’m calling you Clancy. I know, that is awfully presumptuous of me, but you will have to deal with it.

    I don’t begrudge anyone the right to identify in any way they want, or to call themselves whatever name they or their parents or whoever gave them. But that is where their freedom ends.

    Also, how would Phil in Utah refer to a woman with AIS? She would have “the expected set of chromosomes that come with a dick,” after all.

  31. Argenti Aertheri

    It’s this comment — so not obviously racist, but it wouldn’t surprise me.

    darksidecat — amazingly, that’s irrelevant to his “point” that he hopes feminists will have to meet in secret — which would be more like wtf the Nazis did to Jews than like the Nazis themselves, but since when do Godwin arguments make sense?

  32. Crumbelievable

    But that is where their freedom ends.

    We want to declare limitations on other people’s freedoms, but we’re totally not a hate movement, you guys! MRAs constantly amaze me for their ability to sink lower than I thought possible.

  33. If I accidentally make a gender faux pas and refer to someone in the incorrect gender, I would like to be told what said person would like to be referred to AS, and unfortunately, because of douchenozzles like MRAs, most of them are uncomfortable being really open about it. I mean, it’s one thing to act horribly offended and be mean to me for making a mistake (but then again, a person is justified in reacting as they personally feel is appropriate), but ME feeling uncomfortable for being incorrect is LESS important than someone else feeling that their gender identity is being respected properly.

    And I’m cool with that.

  34. That’s awesome. The only problem is that I must now restrain to post it in answer to every troll I come across.

    Interesting point, on the other people’s youtube videos in the clip, out of the 4 men, one is about his mother, one is called a feminine word, ‘twat’, one get racist a comment and the last one is simply called ‘not funny’. In the mean time, most women are threaten with horrible things. On the internet, the idea that the best thing you can be is a white man is very alive. I wonder is troll even realize the big difference in behavior they have with different kind of people.

  35. I don’t know if this is because I’m British as well, but I was far less wowed by that than seemingly everyone else.

    Production values were unexpectedly impressive, but it was at least half as long again as it needed to be (let’s face it, the essential point was made well within the first minute), and the impression I was left with was one of overbearing and ultimately stifling smugness.

    Which is a shame, as I absolutely support the message.

  36. So they can stuff their demands that we not refer to them as assholes? Fair is fair… (asshole is the most polite thing I can think of currently, I mostly just want to launch into a tirade based mostly around the many uses of the word fuck)

    Creep.

  37. I loved it!

    Should keep around for future use — and am seeing it linked all over the place, as it should be.

  38. valerienorth

    That’s going to be the song that comes into my head whenever I see a troll.

  39. Great video. Funny highlight on angry misogynists on youtube. Internet tantrums from group of entitled bullies.

  40. “Oh, and most of all, Ozy resolutely refuses to believe that any non-conservative woman should ever be held accountable for anything she says or does.”

    Hah, wow. Citation fucking needed. And he wonders why Ozy would attack MRAs.

  41. I find the song oddly inspirational.

  42. As a committed hater and part-time troll myself, I see the point of Ms. Fay’s piece, but nevertheless, I have to take the side of my people. I maintain that without a healthy minimum of unbridled free-floating negativity – or maybe a good deal more than that healthy minimum – there is no discourse, no insight, no creativity, finally, nothing.

    We used to have to punch people out or throw rocks with notes on them thru windows to get to that level of reality. Now, thanks to the internet, it’s available to all. In the era of super-easy self-publishing and self-expression, this can only be a good thing. The hater is a countervailing force for excellence and toughness in a world overgrown with kind and accepting spaces. I am proud to call myself a hater.

  43. Argenti Aertheri

    Raoul — as a studio art minor, I must note that one can have a highly intelligent critique and discourse without punching, throwing rocks, or even insulting anyone. Then again, you basically just complained that the world is too nice, and I have to wonder what world you’re living in (and how I can come visit).

    GingerSnaps — I’m going to assume that “creep” is a substitution for my “asshole” and not directed at me, please let me know if I’m being creepy so I can cease being creepy.

  44. AA: The world is what it is. The problem is people.

    I like to say that a smile and a kind word can do a world of good for one person and untold damage to the common good.

  45. Argenti Aertheri

    Raoul — so when people ask you for directions do you just tell them to go to hell and turn left or something? No one here is going to say you have to be nice to assholes (misogyny we mock it) — but there’s a world of difference between calling someone an asshole and any of the examples in that video (eg “this cunt should be raped in the eyes”).

    Or did you just not watch the video and thus don’t know the sort of troll you’re defending?

  46. valerienorth

    @Raoul – Some people call you hater, well, they’re just jealous. You’re right how can I sleep at night. I am a massive prick. LMAO.

    I can’t get this song outta my head.

  47. We used to have to punch people out or throw rocks with notes on them thru windows to get to that level of reality. Now, thanks to the internet, it’s available to all. In the era of super-easy self-publishing and self-expression, this can only be a good thing. The hater is a countervailing force for excellence and toughness in a world overgrown with kind and accepting spaces. I am proud to call myself a hater.

    :I

    You used to punch people/throw rocks through windows? You do realize most trolls aren’t capable of that um right. All I have to say is WTF is your problem dude.

  48. Raoul the 50 year old troll…….

  49. Tulgey Logger

    Meta-trolling: trolling by pseudointellectually justifying trolling.

    Imma take Raoul seriously for a minute here, and note that most trolling involves some form of bigotry, from racism, sexism, homophobia on down the line. In addition to merely mindless, spiteful hostility, bigoted trolling acts to support the status quo in a completely irrational way. Such mindless hostility is a net drag on the sum of human endeavors, becoming a gravity well for thought. Solid discourse, true insight, and creativity are antithetical to the stupid discourse, anti-insight, and unoriginality that is trolling.

    TL;DR Quit trolling and make me a sandwich.

  50. I maintain that without a healthy minimum of unbridled free-floating negativity – or maybe a good deal more than that healthy minimum – there is no discourse, no insight, no creativity, finally, nothing.

    How much time u spend on 4chan?

  51. Argenti Aertheri

    “I maintain that without a healthy minimum of unbridled free-floating negativity – or maybe a good deal more than that healthy minimum – there is … no creativity …”

    I can think of exactly one famous artist who was constantly told zir art was worthless and kept doing it anyways — van Gogh. There is a fundamental difference between “hmm, I like the subject, but maybe crop this bit here out?” and “u black basterd ur films are shit an if i ever see u in the street i’m gonna cave ur head in” (sic, and shit just quoting that feels wrong).

  52. I. LOVE. THIS.

    Now, who wants to join me in writing an off-Broadway musical around this?

  53. Argenti: The MRM maintains that being called a creep is one of the worst possible things that can happen to a man.

    It’s right up there with being sexually assaulted in it’s horrors.

  54. Argenti Aertheri

    Pecunium — yeah I know, and think it silly, but I wanted to leave open the “did you me mean?” question, because being a creep is definitely worse than being called a creep.

    Morgan — Ahh a musical! *hides* …I’ll do the set design as long as I’m not expected to enjoy the show… (great, now I have bits of the music man stuck in my head >.< )

  55. Morgan:
    Haters would be an awesome subject for a musical. Especially with an on-stage representative of the haterati to rip into every scene and put the audience in their place for just showing up. Don’t just break the 4th wall of theater – dynamite it and jump up and down on the bits.

    Tulgey:
    I basically agree that bigotry, sexism, and irrational support of the status quo is disgusting – but I remain convinced that despite the sum of human endeavors, humanity is finally too deeply, broadly, determinedly fucked up to base a solid civilization on anything but fear and loathing of the Other. I hope to Hell I’m wrong.

  56. ‘Nother thing…I suspect that hatertude is, in most cases, an irreversible condition.

    You can recover from being a hater OF this or that particular thing; that happens when minds open and sun shines in. But being an equal opportunity hater? Your brain cells will find some way to burn when the sun rays hit. After so much hatred, the switch gets jammed on, and only some traumatic, nearly life-destroying event can unjam it.

    Read about George Wallace sometime. It took a would-be assassin’s bullet and years in a wheelchair to turn him around. So there’s hope. But probably not before a lot of despair.

  57. Argenti Aertheri

    Good news is misanthropy is a self-perpetuating cycle so they’re likely to cause themselves enough despair to reach that point.

  58. raoul, my thoughtful response to you: trollololololololololololol

  59. I’ve had snippets of this in my head for days now. Particularly ‘You wished me cancer, and misspelled cancer’.

  60. And mine backatya: Trololololol lololol lololol…hahahahaHA!

    (in memoriam Eduard Khil 1934-2012)

  61. MorkaisChosen

    Raoul: A bit of free-floating negativity’s a good thing?

    OK, you’re a pustulent bottom-feeding moron without the sense to feed yourself on anything but the bile you spew forth onto the internet. Your logic is atrocious, your views repellent, and your overall value to society approximately that of an unpleasant scum of algae that photosynthesises so slowly it doesn’t even produce any more oxygen than it respires.

    The experience of having you in this conversation is like mouth ulcers, if mouth ulcers had wriggling tentacles and oozed necrotic filth that filled my mouth with a taste of rot and death.

    I think that’s enough for now, I don’t really do insulting people very often and the practice is useful.

    [DISCLAIMER: I don't actually care very much, I just felt like practicing overblown insults and Raoul's position appears to support doing so for no adequately-explicable reason.]

  62. Nice all-purpose opener. But more specifics would be welcome.

  63. Another MRA :)

    What a surprise that she misses misandric, hell, misandry is coming up as a spelling mistake even while I write this in the comment. But when someone comes to a video discussing how messed up parental rights are for men or how men die earlier than women yet get a fraction of spending on their health issues and tells them to STFU because we all live in a patriarchy that doesn’t count really…

  64. “GingerSnaps — I’m going to assume that “creep” is a substitution for my “asshole” and not directed at me, please let me know if I’m being creepy so I can cease being creepy.”

    Yeah, that. MRAs hate getting called a creep more than anything, so stomping ruthlessly on oppressed classes would be better explained using the word “creep” instead of asshole, in the scenario you presented.

  65. raoul: Very hard to be specific when I don’t know much about you and don’t actually care.

    MRA: Actually I’m all for promoting male health issues- two spring to mind for me, which are prostate cancer and spreading awareness of the fact that men can get breast cancer. There are some male-specific problems about. That doesn’t negate the female-specific problems that exist either, and harping on about how women are horrible doesn’t really help with that.

  66. Argenti Aertheri

    Re: “men die earlier than women” — that difference is down to a 2-3 year difference in the US — have a chart. Also, this could be a matter of biology, as it’s true even in the womb and neonatal period (see wiki). The other main theory will make MRAs scream — higher levels of patriarchy are correlated with higher levels of male mortality (the study is peer reviewed, and available here).

  67. Howard Bannister

    @AA: don’t you know nothing kills a thread faster than facts? It’s like kryptonite to them.

    Also, @Raoul: so you believe that because people are generally mean, the solution is more mean? And if you’re just mean enough, that might make them nicer? Bullshit in the highest degree. Peace, love and understanding changed me from what I was to what I am. Do you call me non-existent?

  68. Howard Bannister

    Er, that should be @Argenti. Since you’re not Alcoholics Anonymous. Curse my slow reading of posts that went up while I was out!

  69. And let me offer my own personal thanks to all the Man Boobz haters! Hey, “guy who posts on The Spearhead and elsewhere as Nugganu,” every time you tell me you hope I “get … anally raped one day. for real, yeah,” in comments from this IP address, and this one, it gives me yet more reason to continue on, mocking and exposing you complete douchewaffles.

    Didn’t you shout about how wrong it is to dox people earlier? I guess if you’re mad enough, it’s okay to post traceable information… are you hoping he’ll become the next Andy Warhol or something?
