8channers defend themselves against charges of transphobia with more transphobia

Yesterday, I noted some of the nasty transphobia that had shown up in a recent /gg/ thread on 8chan, undercutting somewhat the claims to respectability we’ve been hearing a lot of from GamerGaters recently. Well, 8channers noticed my post, and weren’t exactly pleased about it.

But their responses to my post, well, they didn’t exactly suggest that the transphobia I saw in the earlier thread was some sort of fluke.

Oh, sure, some of the commenters complained, as my critics often do, that I had “quote mined” the earlier thread.

Sitting cheek by jowl next to these comments were comments of a rather different sort. Trigger Warning for threats, transphobia, homophobia, etc.

So, yeah, there’s really no need to posit vast conspiracies sending paid shills to shitpost on 8chan when it’s pretty clear a sizeable portion of their userbase is happy to post crap like this for free.

And there’s no need to mine for quotes like these when there are so many of them just sitting right there on the surface.

Eh, I’d be up for a discussion. Two conditions, though:

1. It’s not about whether your first comment was ok. It wasn’t.
2. It’s not a meta-discussion about how mean everyone is being. You kept digging, ignoring the first rule of holes; meanness is about what you can expect from that.

How many times do you have to be told the shit you were spouting isn’t up for discussion?

This isn’t a debate blog. It’s for mocking misogyny.

Ok, instruct me! Where are my moderated comments?

Ok, instruct me! Where are my moderated comments?

‘Twixt the layers of time, tucked away in the emptiness of the void, there lies a world no eye may see, no finger may touch. It is a world where darkness and light do not dare tread, where no sound echos against the absence of walls. The banished of this realm do not think or feel but merely exist, plucked from this realm like overripe fruit. There they will stay, suspended in a vacuum of nothing, where only God may rescue them.

In other words, they’re in the moderation queue, and they won’t show up until someone approves them. Chances are that’s not going to happen here.

Yup, because I’m David. I’m also the mods, who are also David. We all are, in fact, David, who is a bunch of cats, which are all bunches of ferrets. It’s a very complicated setup here, but it all works surprisingly well.

The ferret that impersonates me while impersonating a cat while impersonating David is named Chopstick, in case you were curious.

@ kirbywarp – Mine is named Drumstick! Maybe we’re twins?!

Actually, that comment you whine about might exist in the thread back a page. The long one where you’re like “Okay, so maybe people shouldn’t just be afraid of all schizophrenics, just the scary ones! WHY ARE YOU ALL PROJECTING?”

So, you might literally be whining about nothing.

Carrying on:

Really don’t mind if you sit this one out
My words but a whisper, your deafness a shout
I may make you feel but I can’t make you think…

Of course, you could have left us a second long comment. Who knows?

My ferrets are named Gizmo, Gizzard, and Gilbert.

They call the catsuit “Gelato”

It is a good thing we did not get to name the David suit, as it was already named. Sorry, I meant they. We are by no means a sockpuppet of the ferrets in the catsuits in the David suits.

*Darn it. Gizmo, stop typing we*

Ahem.

I am by no means a sockpuppet controlled indirectly by ferrets.

@Grumpyoldnurse:

Not twins. You’re forgetting about Matchstick, Broomstick, Stickers, and little Toothpick!

@ kirbywarp – You’re right! How could I forget the rest of the sextuplets?! ::hangs head in shame::

Just in case you are new to the interwebs and have never commented on a blog before, Mackey, I will ‘splain.
If you exhibit asshattery you get put in moderation. Then you comments sit there till the blog owner decides they want your comment in the thread or delete it. This creates a condition where you have the option to either wait or go away.
That should be enough JAQing off for you today, eh?

grumpyoldnurse

Oops, I mean septuplets! (forgot Nostick – aka the Teflon Ferret)

Doesn’t Mackey risk going blind or getting a hairy keyboard or something if he JAQs off too much?

Oof, I forgot Nostick too. Sorry Nostick. It’s ok.

Now I really want teacup ferrets to exist, so I can get one and name one Toothpick. :3

grumpyoldnurse

That’s why he’s called Nostick! 🙂

Though, with the weather here today, I’d rather have an Icepick. (stupid Canadian winter)

Could you possibly import some of that snow and ice down south to New England? We were promised a snow storm that turned into a bunch of rain… I was quite disappointed.

::checks weather report::

No can do, kirbywarp, the wind chill is only -30 here. We don’t actually have any cold to spare, right now. Will send you some when it drops to -40.

Rain in winter stinks, though, so you have my sympathies. Hope it dries up for you before it freezes!

During my often mentioned stint at the VA hospital, I dealt with a number of veterans who had been diagnosed with various mental illnesses, including paranoid schizophrenia. I never felt any threat of danger from any of them. One even assured me that, although he knew I worked for Them, he didn’t hold it against me, as I wasn’t actively engaged in tormenting him. He seemed more to be pitied than feared, really.

Also, random happiness note: the radio station is playing a jazz version of Baby Elephant Walk. Adorableness made audible.

I had one psych rotation in nursing school (I managed to weasel out of the other one I was supposed to do). It was probably a very unhealthy ward, as it turned me completely off psychiatric nursing as a speciality. I was more nervous of the staff than I was the patients. The patients were mostly psychotic, but an awful lot of the staff were mean.

There are no comments of yours in the pending/moderation queue, Mackey. I’m guessing David did that. In other words, dumbass, you’re making yourself really unwelcome here.
