We Hunted the Mammoth: The FAQ-ening

Q) A mammoth, huh? What’s this blog about?

A) Misogyny, not mammoths.

Specifically, this blog focuses on what I call the “New Misogyny,” an angry antifeminist backlash that has emerged like a boil on the ass of the internet over the last decade or so. These aren’t your traditional misogynists – the social conservatives and religious fundamentalists who make up much of the far right.

These are guys, mostly, who range in age from their teens to their fifties, who have embraced misogyny as an ideology, as a sort of symbolic solution to the frustrations in their lives – whether financial, social, or sexual.

Some of them identify as Men’s Rights Activists, trying to cast their peculiar struggle against what they see as the excess of feminism and the advantages of women as a civil rights issue of sorts. Alongside those who explicitly label themselves MRAs we find a great number of antifeminist and antiwomen activists we might call Men’s Rights-adjacent – like those in the Skeptic and Atheist subcultures who still haven’t gotten over an offhand remark Skepchick founder Rebecca Watson made about a dude in an elevator a couple of years ago.

Others proclaim themselves Men Going Their Own Way (MGTOW), declaring a sort of independence from women – while spending much of their time on message boards talking endlessly about them.

Still others see themselves as Pickup Artists (PUA), or masters of “Game,” espousing elaborate “scientific” theories of male superiority while trading tips on how best to pressure or manipulate drunk women into bed. This misogynistic wing of the PUA subculture has a considerable overlap with a subset of traditionalist and far-right blogs. Many of those in what has come to be called “the manosphere” — hey, don’t blame me, I didn’t come up with that name — don’t simply embrace misogyny; they also proudly embrace “scientific” racism and other bigotries.

Still, while some of the New Misogynists see themselves as conservatives, even “neo-reactionaries,” many identify themselves as libertarians or even as liberals. Theirs is a backlash that frames itself as a step forward.

That said, there are numerous posts here that don’t have anything to do with MRAs or MGTOWers or PUAs or any of their ilk. Sometimes I like to post cat pics.

Q) Ok, but you still haven’t explained the mammoth thing.

A) This is a reference to a quote I once posted from a dude who felt women weren’t sufficiently appreciative of what men had supposedly done for them over the ages. Here’s the quote, in all of its weird glory:

We men built a nice safe world for you all the the coal-mines of death, roads, railroads, bridges and tall office buildings. Its $1,000,000 spent per death of a man on a large dangerous project on average now you can just 9-5 it and call it a day in air-conditioned and heated safety. Forget about the wars we died in and the sacrifices made just ignore history or is it now hersorty? You are accruing the benefits without ever having to pay the price you still don’t have to sign up for the draft and who will protect you? The Sex and the City girls will fight off the North Koreans with their Manolo Blahniks?

Men gave you this modern world now you take it for granted we hunted the mammoth to feed you we died in burning buildings and were gassed in the trenches but that was just for fun right?

How quick and conveniently you forget who made this possible.

We gave you Leonardo da Vinci, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy not to mention countless others, Jonas Salk saved half the world from death and you just piss on it all.

This quote is such an amazing clusterfuck of misogyny, entitlement and unwarranted self-importance – not to mention historical ignorance – that the bit about mammoths became a catchphrase around here, neatly conveying pretty much everything this blog is against. And so I decided to make it the name of the blog.

Q) Wasn’t this blog called Man Boobz before?

A) Yes. That was a name I came up with on the spur of the moment when I first started this blog. But it was kind of a dopey name. It didn’t really fit what the blog has become, and I got a bit tired of explaining it to people.

Q) What were you thinking?

A) You see, the “Man Boobz” in question are the misogynistic dudes I write about on this blog. The term “boob,” in addition to meaning “breast,” can also mean “a nincompoop.” It’s a … double entendre? Ha ha!

Q) But you call yourself Manboobz, right?

A) No. I did post as Manboobz on a few sites, but just to identify myself as being connected to this blog. I’ve switched to using my real name.

Q) And what is that?

A) David Futrelle. I’m a freelance writer and blogger living in Chicago, and the guy behind the Confused Cats Against Feminism blog. For more on my illustrious career, see the David Futrelle FAQ.

Q) Do you hate men?

A) Nope.

Q) You’re against the Men’s Rights movement. Are you against men having rights?

A) Of course not. As hundreds of posts on this site show pretty clearly, the so-called Men’s Rights Movement is a hateful, reactionary movement driven largely by misogyny and hatred of feminism. It doesn’t help men. It encourages them to scapegoat women and stew in their own bitterness.

Q) Are you a feminist?

A) Well, yeah. Somehow this wasn’t really a big deal to anyone until I started making fun of misogynists online.

Q) So you admit that you’re not an objective journalist?

A) No one is an objective journalist. But I try to be fair and accurate and upfront about my opinions.

Q) If you’re a feminist, why do you let misogynists and other trolls post comments on your blog?

A) The point of this blog is to expose misogynists and the terrible things they say. So if misogynists want to come here and expose themselves with their own words, I say, why not let them? The feminist commenters here generally enjoy batting them around like a cat toy. That said, I ban those who are abusive, and I’m now setting aside some “no-troll, no-MRA” threads for those who want to discuss the issues, or whatever else they want to discuss, without being derailed or dogged by misogynists.

Q) Are you secretly funded by the international feminist conspiracy?

A) No. I’m not funded by any organization. Some readers have very kindly given me donations. You can too, if you wish. Click that button over there on the right.

Q) Do you advocate killing children?

A) No. Misogynists are assholes, and they tend not to like this blog. So they make up ridiculous shit about me all the time. If a misogynist or MRA says something about me, it is most likely completely untrue. Check their sources, if they have any, and you’ll see that their claims are bullshit.

Q) I heard some MRAs call you fat. Are you fat?

A) Yes, I am fat. This is one of the very few true things MRAs ever say about me. For some reason they like to mention this a lot, as if it’s somehow a rebuttal of what I write.

Q) What’s with all the cat pictures?

A) I like cats.

    Watch as ignatiusloyola attempts to defend r/mensrights lax policy on child porn.

  2. Cool story, Dave. I checked your site ratings, and I have a new FAQ for you – what role does your feminism play in your declining relevance? To be fair, a 25% retention rate is pretty good for a guy who gets most of his traffic from feminist spammers. But at least you have us regulars to fluff up your comments, right? I remember this cracked.com article, where just about every positive comment was from an account registered after the article was posted. It seems all you need to do is use the word “sexism” and “misogyny” a few times to have some feminists crawl out of the woodwork and chunk their elastic panties at you.
    I’m finished.

  3. RE: IR

    I’m finished.

    Promise?

  4. I promise. Here’s a rag, use it as you will.

  5. IR, what on earth are you babbling about? I’m not sure what you’re hallucinating when you look at those Alexa pages, but traffic for manboobz has been steadily growing month over month. Also, the site gets kind of a lot of comments. I don’t know if you’ve noticed.

  6. John, while the r/mensrights policy on child porn is really badly worded, it doesn’t condone or allow child porn. I think this crusade of yours is misguided and misleading. There are a lot of things about r/mensrights that are far more worthy of critique.

  7. Your website does not rank high enough to get a history, but when 75% of your visitors click and leave (compared to 44% at AVfM), you’re not exactly penning a winner. You also get a shitload of comments because of a vocal minority – if your reading comprehension skills were not so lacking you would have caught that in:

    But at least you have us regulars to fluff up your comments, right?

    It’s hard to believe you used to do this stuff for a living. :)

  8. *I’m sorry, not 44% at AVfM. It’s 40% at AVfM. But hey, we aren’t all enlightened feminists who never make mistakes.

  9. Hi, I am new to the site. If you consider me a feminist spammer, you are welcome. However, I am actually here to read about stuff that is as funny as hell – namely these butt-hurt, persecuted males, seeking to reclaim their rightful privilege.

    The only feminist conspiracy, is the fact that intelligent people seek each other out. Like seeks like.

  10. Idealoguereview:

    Oh you are so full of hate. Maybe when some woman will finally will consent to have sexual intercourse with you (or even be in the same room with you for more than 5 minutes) all of this won’t seem so bad.

    You will realize that you are not as shut out of mainstream discourse, as you believed earlier.

    As for insulting and shaming this website, and feminists:

    Tit for tat.

    And tit for Dave.

    Tat for you.

  11. Anne, don’t worry about FF/IR/WTFBBQ, he is just trolling for his website that not even the MRAs bother to visit.

  12. Okay, I’m an angry person, I don’t pleasure enough women, when I pleasure enough women I’ll achieve some state of enlightenment where I’m not angry… I still don’t see whether Anne was just venting on me or trying to tell me something, but then I don’t really care that much either. Well, enjoy your little symposium.

  13. @IR:

    You know, responding to insults three days after they were first made doesn’t really send the message that you don’t care.

  14. Hey, IR/FF/PP: I thought you didn’t care. I thought you didn’t care so much you were finished with this place.

    Looks like you can’t get over us.

    Imagine our joy and relief.

  15. So Kirby thinks that I read Anne’s creative expose, spent three days recovering, and then returned. Can anyone else think up another possibility? Kirby, you’re welcome to chime in.

  16. I have one! You’re so obsessed with this place that you even troll the faq thread?

  17. If we’re such a pathetic irrelevancy, why are you HERE?

    P.S. The MRM is a pathetic irrelevancy, but we read about it because it’s funny. You don’t seem to consider us all that funny.

  18. Care to spill more of yourself out for me to lap up, or are you finished?

  19. IR/FF/PP: You’re the one chewing on old posts like a dog on a bone. The one who says, “I’m finished” and then comes back for more.

    Who is revealing what?

  20. RE: Ideologuereview

    Care to spill more of yourself out for me to lap up, or are you finished?

    Shame on you! I’m a married man.

    RE: Anne

    As someone mostly asexual, I’m uncomfortable with the claim that IR’s dickery is just sexual frustration. Plenty of people are celibate and don’t act like dicks on the Internet, and I don’t like equating his behavior with lack of bedroom success. Hell, for all I know, he gets shagged rotten every week; I don’t see what that has to do with him being obnoxious.

  21. Gianni Sperti

    Why do you hate us males?
    Come on mate, we must stand united against the female threat.

    Since we are attracted to them, they exploit this weakness to use us to their advantage.
    They always have the upper hand, they can cry their way out from problems, they are regarded as precious and special, they control and rule the relationship market.

    Why do you help them? Because ridiculing males gets you a female?
    Please, think about it!
    Thank you,
    Gianni
    (A fellow male)

  22. Since we are attracted to them, they exploit this weakness to use us to their advantage.

    What if I like menz?

  23. Since we are attracted to them, they exploit this weakness to use us to their advantage.
    They always have the upper hand, they can cry their way out from problems, they are regarded as precious and special, they control and rule the relationship market.

    wait, you’re saying that men are so weak and stupid that the lure of getting laid can actually enslave us. as a man, i object to your hateful caricature of my gender.

  24. wait, you’re saying that men are so weak and stupid that the lure of getting laid can actually enslave us. as a man, i object to your hateful caricature of my gender.

    Its misandry I say!!

  25. Wait, Gianni isn’t a Poe?

  26. CassandraSays

    Manboobz – the only site where people troll the FAQ so often that it’s hard to keep track of who’s doing it seriously and who’s a poe.

  27. Thing is, there are MRA talking points that are pretty fucking stupid, but usually those talking points merely summarize actual MRA verbiage; the actual MRAs are longer and more circumspect.

  28. I don’t know much about MRA’s (I have only just heard about them). But there are A LOT of misandrist feminists out there. Feminism has been unchecked for most of it’s existence and they do have the media and journalists behind them, the most power someone can have. If MRAs can provide counterpoints it can only be a good thing IMO. Every group needs outside criticism. Why do feminists get so up in arms over them?

  29. Feminism has been unchecked for most of it’s existence and they do have the media and journalists behind them, the most power someone can have.

    Your not a mra? Yeahhhh rightt. I have never met any non mras who think that feminists control everything secretly. xD

  30. @jumbofish
    you are overlooking schizophrenics, but to be fair, they can’t help it and it shouldn’t be held against them.

  31. Uhh someone can believe in conspiracy theories and not be schizophrenic you know.

  32. you are overlooking schizophrenics, but to be fair, they can’t help it and it shouldn’t be held against them.

    But you don’t have any evidence to show that these aren’t just fools who believe in conspiracy theories… lots of non-schizophrenics believe in them.

  33. there are A LOT of misandrist feminists out there. Feminism has been unchecked for most of it’s existence and they do have the media and journalists behind them, the most power someone can have. If MRAs can provide counterpoints it can only be a good thing IMO. Every group needs outside criticism. Why do feminists get so up in arms over them?

    Unchecked? Where? The people who said the suffragettes were making mountains out of molehills.

    The feminists of the 50s were “homewreckers”. The feminists of the 60s were communists. In the seventies there were man-haters. In the 80s they were super-manhaters. From there on it’s been mostly people saying they were redundant.

    And if you look at the presss, it’s not as if the Phyllis Schafelys and Anita Bryant and Sara Palins and the like of the world are being denied a forum; nor are they marginalised: Anita Bryant was all over the airwaves; until she changed her tune a bit… then she disappeared. Schafely was invited to the White House, IRRC by not less than two presidents.

    It’s not a question of outside criticism, it’s a question of valid criticism. The MRM doesn’t do that, rather it spouts that women want to be “sluts” and “tease” men, without, “facing the consequences”, or that men ought to have the final say in taking a pregnancy to term (or that if they don’t get that say, they can have a, “paper divorce” and leave the child’s care completely to the mother. She, after all, chose to fuck, so she is responsible for what happens. They, somehow, don’t have to pay for the occasional results of fucking).

    Women are, per the MRM, liars about being raped. They do it on whim, and are always believed.

    They, “provoke” men to abuse them. If they defend themselves it’s “unreasonable”, because they could always just leave. Men who say women ought to be beaten, or mutilated (cutting their vocal chords is one of the ways they suggest) are, “responding to years of abuse at the hands of feminism”, but any woman [be she feminist, or not] who so much as laughs at a man’s suffering is being unreasonable; proof that all feminists hate all men.

    Et cetera.

    That’s the difference.

  34. t there are A LOT of misandrist feminists out there

    No. There are zero. I’ll concede that there are probably some feminists who would be, given the chance, but in the real world you can’t really disadvantage men for their maleness.

    eminism has been unchecked for most of it’s existence

    what. Do you know history at all?

    If MRAs can provide counterpoints it can only be a good thing IMO

    They can’t. I mean, they can flail and try and whine, but actually valid counterpoints? Nah, not really.

    They do have the media and journalists behind them, the most power someone can have.

    Do you know how many anti-abortion bills passed this year in the USA alone? ‘the most power someone can have’ is the power to actually decide on legislation.

    Every group needs outside criticism.

    Yeah, it’s not like feminists don’t deal with fools who think they’re god’s gift to logic whining about how we’ve gone too far all the time *eyeroll*

    Why do feminists get so up in arms over them?

    Because they’re misogynist, heterosexist, cis-sexist, and racist jackasses, almost to a person.

  35. If MRAs can provide counterpoints

    that’s a big if, and one the illiterate, privileged crybabies of the mra havent come close to meeting yet

  36. Crumbelievable

    If MRAs can provide counterpoints it can only be a good thing IMO. Every group needs outside criticism. Why do feminists get so up in arms over them?

    If MRAs just wanted to address some criticisms of feminism through arguments, I wouldn`t be so opposed to that. I would probably disagree with them on almsot all points, but I wouldn`t be so vehemently opposed to them.

    Unfortunately, this is not the type of criticism or rhetoric that comes from the MRM. Mostly, it`s shit like

    “Women who get raped are stupid bitches who were begging for it”

    or “Giving women the right to vote has greatly contributed to the downfall of Western civilization”

    or my personal favorite, “If you don`t do as we say, there will be widespread violence of apocalyptic proportions and lots of people will probably die. I`d hate to say that happen, wouldn`t you?”

    And lest you think I`m strawmanning, I can point you to the sources I`m very closely paraphrasing here.

  37. MRAs are providing a counterpoint to the radical “women shouldn’t have acid thrown in their faces” position by taking a pro-acid position. The truth must lie somewhere in the middle.

  38. Argenti Aertheri

    “I don’t know much about MRA’s … Why do feminists get so up in arms over them?”

    Maybe try knowing something about that of which you speak before you speak? The answer to your question though — “Because they’re misogynist, heterosexist, cis-sexist, and racist jackasses, almost to a person.”

    Try reading some before acting like you have a Radical! Unique! New! Idea! please.

    “you are overlooking schizophrenics, but to be fair, they can’t help it and it shouldn’t be held against them.”

    Wtf does schizophrenia have to do with anything? Assuming it has to do with conspiracy theories and is thus relevant, actually you can hold it against them — killing because of a delusion or hallucination is still murder for example — it’s just that arguing with a delusional believe is, by definition, pointless. You can certainly argue with the premises and/or conclusions of that delusion and attempt to minimize harm though.

    For the record, since this is the FAQ, feminists aren’t really cool with shaming the mentally ill, please don’t do it. That means treating people with schizophrenia like people, not everything they say is purely based in false reality, and even the things that are false are real to them and thus should be taken seriously.

  39. Howard Bannister

    Wait, wait, troll thinks that every group needs a counter-point?

    And then wants this site to stop counterpointing the MRAs?

    …logic! It fails!

  40. Is there anyone who whines about “misandry” that isn’t an MRA? Or was I the only one that was unaware that the word existed before reading MRAs’ whining?

  41. serpentineminer

    I’m here to whine about “misandry.” But I don’t mean the imaginary concept, I mean the word. It’s f*cking ugly, man. I mean ooglay. And it’s hard for me to say, like, physically. Dude, I could whine about this all day.

  42. Men claiming to be owed respect based on the actions of their ancestors is both interesting and amusing. Are we to claim the bad as well?

    Was your dad arrested for stealing bread, part of a war crime, or a convicted rapist? Surely we’re as responsible for the negative as well?

  43. Dear Futrelle

    Have you ever done a piece on the crazies in feminism before? I know they’re out there, and I believe that your blog is supposed to document the idiots on both sides.

    I would really love to read something about feminism. I’m pretty sure you can find most of them on Tumblr or something. Thanks!

  44. Have you ever done a piece on the crazies in feminism before? I know they’re out there, and I believe that your blog is supposed to document the idiots on both sides.

    What part of the banner is unclear to trolls? “Misogyny: I mock it”.

  45. First they ignore you,Then laugh at you, and hate you Then they fight you Then you win.

    I’d say we’re at the “Laugh at you and hate you” stage right now. But the truth is, even if some MRA’s are over the top, as are radical feminists; there still are issues of discrimination against men.

    Any reasonable person would agree that sexism cannot only be a one way street, only affecting women. Discrimination against men does exist, as does misandry.

    Does anyone on this thread really believe that misogyny can exist, but not misandry; that women can be discriminated against but not men?

    If so, do you believe it so strongly that you would reject any evidence to the contrary?

  46. Excellent point by Rutee – why not expose both sides? Surely radical feminists come up with some derision worthy material as well as over-the-top MRA’s.

  47. They’re more into transphobia/classism/general ignorance of intersectionality than misogyny, though. We mock misogyny here. It’s in the header.

  48. @Mark: because that’s not what he’s doing here. Sometimes blogs exist to talk about a single issue. This is one of those, and there’s no reason it should be anything else.

    And I think if you’re going to ask someone if they feel that there’s “no such thing” as something, you should point out what led you to that conclusion. This blog is about the wacky crap that a very specific subset of people espouse, not about every single one of the ills of the world. Just like literally every other blog on the planet, the writer writes about the things that impel him to write, the things that are important to him.

    You could probably go start your own blog about how all of those awful high-powered feminists are keeping you down with their awful institutional man-hate. You could probably even find some suggestions for where to put that blog if you look around at where the posts Our Man David quotes and stuff come from.

    Look forward to seeing you in the main body of a post someday, because I bet you’ve got some really……inspiring things to say!

  49. Any reasonable person would agree that sexism cannot only be a one way street, only affecting women. Discrimination against men does exist, as does misandry.

    Does anyone on this thread really believe that misogyny can exist, but not misandry; that women can be discriminated against but not men?

    Let me guess, you’re one of those people who thinks reverse racism against white people is a thing, right? Yeah, I’m pretty sure it will just stay at the “Laugh at you” stage indefinitely because you guys are a joke.

  50. I’d say we’re at the “Laugh at you and hate you” stage right now. But the truth is, even if some MRA’s are over the top, as are radical feminists; there still are issues of discrimination against men.

    actually society is mostly still in the ‘ignore you’ stage, it’s just that a couple of blogs are laughing at you.

    but i mean, that’s because youre not a real movement, just a bunch of angry dudes on the internet

  51. Misandry is not the thing you make it out to be, Mark. Come back when men have been systematically discriminated against for a large part of history, then I will entertain your deep thoughts on misandry. Until then, HAHAHA.

  52. First they ignore you,Then laugh at you, and hate you Then they fight you Then you win.

    Sometimes it works out that way, when you’re actually fighting for a good cause. Sometimes you just get stuck in the ignore or laugh stages. There are still people that argue that the earth is flat. I don’t think they’re going to win any time soon, either. The only reason to argue with a flat earther is for amusement. Likewise, the only reason to argue with MRA’s is because it can be funny.

  53. Can it really be classed as “being ignored” if most people don’t know they even exist?

  54. Shara-you are correct. What you see on these couple of hundred men’s blogs is not a movement. There is no men’s movement on the Internet and it’s just a lot of disconnected bored bloggers with nothing else to do but sit by the computer 24/7. They don’t have the brains or money to be effective and each one is just bitching about his own little gripe.

  55. So this site is devoted to mocking some sexually-frustrated douchebags who make stupid comments on the internet about women. Great, but I don’t really see how this makes you very much better than them. It just seems a bit sad and pointless to attack people who are essentially teenagers or fat guys living in their mom’s basement who have been rejected one too many times. Some women can be douchebags too, so why not adopt an equal opportunity mocking policy, or even better, find a cause that is actually important?

  56. Good thing I clicked on this randomly because Jeff’s magnificient unique insights seem to have gone uncommented on!

    Or maybe it was ignored because it’s the same thing for the 5000th time? That would also make sense.

  57. Yeah… folks who troll the FAQ are basically trying to get in a good mock while hiding from the commentariat. Scared it’ll be a fair fight, because they know how that’ll go.

    The lowest of the low-hanging fruit, is what I’m saying.

    I could point out that these are not just guys living in their mother’s houses, or that David writes about women saying stupid things too, but it’s all just too easy…..

  58. I’m also noticing the phenomenon, lately, of the dudes-with-usernames-that-consist-of-a-single-obviously-male-first-name and how their comments always seem to go. What’s up with that? o.o

  59. Well Jeff isn’t my real name. And yeah, fair point, I couldn’t be bothered to read all the comments. But whatever, having read a bit more of the site, it still seems a little bit pointless to me. This is the internet folks, people are unpleasant here. This blog is pretty much dedicated to feeding the trolls.

  60. “This is the internet folks, people are unpleasant here. This blog is pretty much dedicated to feeding the trolls.”

    Honey, I’m about to blow your mind: here, *we hunt trolls for fun*. Or, as they put it on another blog, “FEED THEM TIL THEY EXPLODE”.

  61. Molly – Yep. The last one told me that he didn’t have to provide a source that more men are raped than women because it is a FACT.

    But, I think this site can pose some issues in that it doesn’t exactly challenge them. They aren’t hilarious, they are outright scary as they demonstrate the patriarchy in crisis, which like capitalism or anything when it is threatened, it lashes out and becomes more reactionary (in this case – becoming more violent toward women and non-male folks. The basis of their pseudo-movement is indicative that the bourgeois family itself is in crisis, thanks both to feminism and the crises of late capitalism.

    This goes back to an earlier comment about radfems. I imagine there could be some radical feminists who are transphobic (just as there are racist and misogynist communists, it is unfortunate but we are all human). The thing though is not that radical feminists are opposed whatsoever to anyone’s identity, completely to the contrary. Opposition comes from what is seen as the binary nature of trans/cis being imposed upon others by a group of folks who very accurately and bravely challenge the original coercive gender binary of male/female. I am female-bodied, yet I do not identify as a cisfemale as I seek to eradicate the coercive gender binary. However, I see that binary as being reproduced and reinforced by the trans/cis binary (also, I don’t find it to be fair for men who challenge the patriarchy they were socialized to support to be told that they are cismale). In a sense, then, I’m told by the binary that I must choose a gender, and my choice is either the gender that was coerced upon me at birth to which I was then socialized within, with all the sexual assault that’s been waged upon me and my fellow women. I don’t and can’t choose to be ‘female’, I was socialized as female and I don’t believe in gender as anything other than social hierarchy. I do choose, though, to dismantle the patriarchy and destroy gender itself.

    Also, thanks to the person that called people on shaming schizophrenics! (This got a bit long so I’m glad I didn’t need to.)

  62. howardbann1ster: folks who troll the FAQ are basically trying to get in a good mock while hiding from the commentariat. Scared it’ll be a fair fight, because they know how that’ll go.
    Why do you think someone would post a comment if it’s not meant to be read? This comment is meant to be read by anyone, by the way. That’s why I’m posting it to a public blog that can be read by anyone.

  63. Hey, PreggoPunchout! How goes the game designing, you idiot? For anyone who’s newer here, you should know that “idealoguereview” is the designer of the game Preggo Punchout, described here.

    The premise is that two pregnant women are vying for the affections of a perverse millionaire. The millionaire will only marry the one who will birth him an heir the earliest, and hence the two hookers try to land enough blows to cause the other to miscarry. I need you to create a series of promotional pinups featuring the following:
    Unlockable modes – quadruplets, teen, and anorexic.
    Unlockable – faces of meth, facial hair, cleft lip, burka, and battered wife (downloadable content, 2.5% of all proceeds go to battered women’s shelters).
    It comes out in Japan on the 20th under the title “Preggo Punchout” on Steam and various adult distribution networks. You will begin receive royalties a week prior from any preorders. For the Japanese version I will also need several defeat comics.
    The millionaire, a mysterious figure behind a tinted window occasionally illuminated by the flash of a xenon bulb or the lingering glow of a cigarette.
    There is also a TF sequence I would like, where one of the women (unarmed) is dodging the others’ sledge hammer, dives away, and grabs an enchanted jar resembling a dimensionally challenged African-American woman. She proceeds to morph into an anthro gorilla and ravage her opponent. This is to be rendered as sensitively as possible.

  64. Cloudiah, why do you think I am an idiot?

  65. Maybe because anyone who would like to play a game where two pregnant women punch each other to induce labor and/or miscarriage would be an idiot. I think Idiot is putting it kindly.

  66. Ha ha, Fembot got in before me. Basically the answer is “I think you are an idiot because you talk and act like an idiot.” Thanks for asking, I’ll be here all week.

  67. It’s not a real game. It was a troll job designed to solicit death threats from feminists, which it did.
    Now, I would like an explanation as to how your mind is somehow superior to mine. All you’ve offered is abstractions and assumptions, which is disingenuous and horribly self-indulgent.
