Women Laughing Alone At Tom Martin (and his video project about “gold-digging women”)

This won’t be news to a lot of you — I’m a little late getting to it — but our old pal Tom Martin, the repulsive British MRA celebrity, is actually going ahead with the somewhat baffling video “women and comedy” project he was babbling about in the comments here many months ago, when he was still allowed to comment here. Well, “actually going ahead with it” this August if he can get anyone else to agree to work for him for free minimum wage.

The documentary project is called “Laughing with Women” and, Martin explains, it will “investigat[e] if gold-digging impairs women’s joke-making ability, and if, when women reject gold-digging in all its forms, they can become instantly funnier.”

In case that didn’t make sense to you — don’t worry, that’s a completely natural reaction — Tom explains his, er, “logic” a bit further in a jobs listing he’s posted in hopes of finding a crew, which has already gotten a good deal of ridicule over at PZ Myers’ and on at least one comedy website.

Why are women, on average, slightly less funny than men? Does gold-digging in particular impede women’s joke-making ability? When women publicly reject gold-digging, do they become as funny, or even funnier than men?

In his numerous visits to Man Boobz, Martin expounded at length on the topic of gold-digging women, generally referring to them by his preferred term, the shorter and blunter “whores.” Martin has previously estimated that roughly 97% of women fit this description, and has  suggested that female penguins are also whores. Frankly, once he gets going on the topic, it’s hard to shut him up, which is partly why he’s no longer welcome in the comments here.

In any case, this odd hypothesis will be tested, Martin says, with a “radical, and revealing street-based social experiment.”

Still puzzled? Mike Booth, the British video comedian behind SomeGreyBloke and Dan Cardamon, has managed to tease out a few more details from Martin (posting here as sexismBusters):

Martin is confident that his proposed video will blow the lid off this whole “women and gold-digging and comedy, no really, they’re connected” thing:

If the radical, and revealing street-based social experiment at the centre of our documentary proves gold-digging does make women less funny (as pre-production research suggests) then our findings will make headlines around the world, our film’s two minute teaser trailer attached to all those news and blog articles (Update: this advert alone has already been blogged and tweeted about by outraged PC types).

The full documentary will be shot to a broadcast-quality standard and format, giving mainstream television companies worldwide the opportunity to purchase broadcasting rights (if they’re feeling brave enough) whilst we maintain a virtually guaranteed revenue stream from our already established hardcore of supporters and fans within the non PC gender equality field around the world, who, along with everyone else, will be able to enjoy Laughing with Women on newly launched pay-per-view channel, Vimeo on Demand (VoD) – where VoD itself takes a very modest 10% cut. The documentary has the potential to be translated into several languages – gold-digging a familiar if hidden story in every country, until now.

In other words, it sounds like some sort of video gold mine.

So I’d recommend that all gold-digging women out there try to get in on the ground floor of this Tom Martin dude.

Oh, and speaking of Dan Cardamon, here’s the faux MRA’s take on the project:

CORRECTION: This post originally stated that Martin wouldnt’ be paying his crew, but he says he will be paying them minimum wage, so I’ve corrected the relevant passage above.

EDITED TO ADD: Tom has shown up in the comments, and I’m letting his comments through (for now at least), so if you have any questions for him, feel free to head to the comments to address him directly.

I guess Tommy had to edit out the bits where the women hit him.

Thanks David, I figured you probably missed it. Sorry about all the F-bombs, but it turns out that rapey asshats make me a bit angry.

But what will Tom do now that he can’t come here to get his attention fix? The rage! The despair! The imaginary documentaries that he will now fail to actually make!

Does this mean I won’t get paid for my title suggestions now? Dangit.

This guy is so desperate for attention, it’s hilarious.

I missed where I was supposedly “upset at the prospect of men understanding female sexuality to the point where women can no longer demand financial recompense from men for the traditionally bad sex they’ve been managing to blame on men.”

The thing he’s not getting is that plenty of men understand female sexuality just fine. I’d count my partner among them. It’s not that difficult. Tommy, your behavior and obsessions, again, do not leave you looking to the outside world like an eternally curious autodidact who’s getting to the heart of important matters in his own way. You look like a guy so who’s more neurotic about not being good in bed than pretty much any other man in the English-speaking language. Is this what you want?

I mean, I guess if he needs attention this bad even being seen as a laughing stock is technically what he wants. Tom, I am laughing at you for taking my queries to mean I am opposed to science examining female sexuality and human sexual response. And I guess I’m kind of laughing at you for being shit in bed, because…well when I keep talking about how you look to the outside world, I’m basically talking about that. A guy who wasn’t shit in bed wouldn’t be like this. You are positioning yourself to be the world’s best-known bad lover. So congratulations on the negative attention, you grinning little masochist.

I don’t even know where to begin with the allegations that women seek financial recompense for bad sex? It’s too dumb for words. And yeah, this continually changing documentary sounds imaginary at this point.

It takes talent to so completely wear out one’s welcome that even in a place where one has been granted a special dispensation; because the post was about you; you piss in the punch enough to get tossed on your ear.

It was, however, pretty much inevitable. I’m sure he will (or has) tell all the world about his horrid treatment on his twitter.

I like how after I said I was male, he just completely stopped talking to me. THANKS TOM.

I just realized it would have been fun to totally swamp his documentary with androgynous people when he was trying to film.

I like to imagine a fucking FLOOD of androgynous folks swarming the nightclubs.

With David Bowie.

One of my earliest pics of Louis was pinched from one of Bowie in a Paisley shirt … ::nostalgic sigh::

Gold Digging women just need to get a cat for a pet which is the only thing that they will ever have when they grow very old all alone by themselves.
