The Vaginal Tingles of Feral Women: A selection of the worst comments on my YouTube videos so far
As most regular readers already know, I’ve been putting up a new series of videos on YouTube, featuring animated versions of some of YouTube’s most notable woman-haters. Naturally, these videos have attracted some of the worst commenters on YouTube. For now, I’ve decided to keep the comments there more or less unmoderated, while recommending that those who want to have a conversation that doesn’t involve horrible YouTube commenters come here.
Partly that’s because I don’t have the energy to properly moderate the YouTube comments. And partly it’s because I want to see just how awful they’ll get, to see what MRAs and MGTOWs and others from their general neighborhood will say when there’s no one looking over their shoulder – whether that person is someone like me, or some MRA moderator weeding out the worst remarks so that their movement won’t look bad. (Or at least any worse than it already does.)
So far the results have been instructive. I’ve gotten a lot of supportive comments, and even some reasonably thoughtful ones from some critics. But I’ve also gotten abusive comments and weird misogynistic manifestos.
Here are some of my favorites from the latter two categories.
And yes, I’m putting a TRIGGER WARNING on what follows. Lots of talk about rape, in particular.
This guy’s name is as charming as his comments:
Later he posted this little confession:
This comment was posted as a response to the “John Hembling: I don’t give a fuck about rape” video. But I still haven’t figured out what this guy was trying to say:
This guy argued that Stefan Molyneux is a more valuable contributor to the human race than me in part because Molyneux works out, and I’m fat. No, really. That’s his actual argument:
In his response he suggested he was merely concerned that I was unhealthy. And another dude piped up with his thoughts on my weight.
And here was my response to that last guy, which inspired him to double down:
This guy apparently thinks that MRAs aren’t misogynistic enough. And thinks that contemporary society is run for the benefit of “the vaginal tingles of feral women.”
Then there were this little nugget of wisdom:
I did enjoy this little exchange, though:
Is it unfair to assume that the people leaving the most obnoxious comments are MRAs or MRA-adjacent?
Well, let’s look at them a bit more closely.
If you look at the profile page of Misogynistic RapeMaster, his list of “liked” videos consists mostly of videos by A Voice for Menners and assorted other antifeminists. True, he did also post a weird video suggesting that “Karen Straughan is actually a man who closely resembles a woman,” but I watched it, and it’s more of an absurdist transphobic joke than an attack on her. Yes, Mr. RapeMaster is a troll, but he seems to live on a diet of MRA and antifeminist propaganda.
magicwheel1 is not only a fan of Stefan Molyneux — a self-described MRA who spoke at AVFM’s conference — but he’s also a Karen Straughan fanboy, an avowed “red piller” and a serial fat-shamer.
Erduk describes himself as follows: “I upload video game music and waste time debating people.” But his profile doesn’t give us anything else to work with. So beyond his agreement with Molyneux and his dislike of fatties I can’t say too much about him.But I’m guessing he probably spends a lot of his “debating” time “debating” with feminists.
Daboys1215 is a giant fan of All My Children; his profile doesn’t provide any clues as to his political beliefs. But, given that in another comment he writes that he “can’t wait until Davey gets tossed out of the playpen like Chucky and Hugo,” it’s clear that he’s a reader of MRA and/or other manosphere sites.
W00dyblack’s list of “liked” videos is mostly made up of AVFM, MGTOW, antifeminist and right-wing videos. (Or at least that’s the case with the most recent hundred or so that I looked at.) Given all that, it’s kind of amazing that his comments weren’t nastier.
The other commenters don’t give out any information about themselves at all on their YouTube page.
If you ever wonder why so many MRAs and MGTOWers and others do so on YouTube, these comments, and these profiles, offer a clue. YouTube is filled with guys like this. These are their people.
