Pierre Vs. The Manosphere: A Man Boobz-inspired web comic

pierre

Those of you who aren’t regular readers of the comments here may not be aware of A Voice for Pierre, the hilarious new webcomic by regular Man Boobz commenter Katz, inspired by Man Boobz trolls and dopey Boobz more generally. Here’s the first strip, about a poor paranoid MRA afraid to take his sons to Canada lest they be attacked and possibly killed by wild feminists. Naturally, it’s based on a TRUE STORY.

You can find more Pierre at the A Voice for Pierre website.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

“The standard tricking-foreigners-into-believing-Vegemite-is-edible schtick is just cruel if you ask me.”

Don’t bet on it, there are at least two fans of Vegemite in Illinois – I had to leave my tube of it behind for ’em. Of course they had the advantage of being shown how to spread it on toast (ie. on butter, and Very Thinly) instead of making the mistake of thinking it’s a spread the way mayo or cream cheese are used in the US. Nobody could form a taste for it after that.

I had a Denny’s Caesar salad once (yeah, I know, but we were on the freeway and there were no other places any better). It was an overgrown iceberg lettuce with some chunks of chicken on top.

Yes. And “crisps” and “fries” are both “chips”. We survive.

Turns out chicken salt does have chicken in it, or at least one variety does! No MSG, either.

Kittehs, is offering chicken or plain salt with chips standard down your way? Could be a NSW thing.

Not a gravy fan and had never thought of it that way, but I guess it is. The paprika and salt stick out far more than the chicken to my tongue, though.

I might like it since I like almost anything with paprika. Do they have Bahslen crisps where you are? If so these are pretty good.

I like the posters in the background in Elam’s secret underground lair.

Nothing like that over here that I’ve seen.

I’ve never met anyone who didn’t like chicken salt, so you probably would. I suppose it’s our version of Hawai’ians having salt shakers full of fivespice. Get your hands on some! Could be tricky but if worst comes to worst figure out a way to get in contact and I can send some over.

I think the awards in the background are plaques – hence the “Most Loyal Customer – Plaque Co.” award.

But context is misandry! (I might actually miss Steele’s / Mr. Al’s rants…)

LOL, Katz! Poor Pierre. At least he didn’t get called a mangina. He’d have been even more baffled.

I like that executive toy thingy on the desk next to the red pills.

lowquacks – I’ve seen or heard of chicken salt, but I can’t think where – chip shops, fast food joints, maybe? I’ve never tried it, it sounded a bit weird to put chicken-flavoured something onto chips. I try not to salt ’em at all now.

I’m trying to remember now how the UK handles the issue of what to call tortilla chips. In theory they’re crisps, right? at least the non-fresh kind. But “tortilla crisps” sounds like something flat that you should be putting cream cheese on.

lowquacks

Chip shops and charcoal/portuguese chicken places have it, usually. Some fish n chip shops, too. Fast food places never have it.

Heems of rap group Das Racist explained context a little better in the Man Boobz Standard Language of Hating The White Man.

Random but hilarious – apparently Glen Beck wrote a letter to Muse? They have informed him that their songs don’t mean what he wants them to but he’s just not having it.

Now I’m craving chips. Either kind. Malt vinegar is the way to go!

I can definitely see the overlap there. Combine the David Icke obsession with big manly rock that sounds like something a sci-fi-obsessed 12-year-old would imagine owning an electric guitar would be like, and you’ve got a libertarian pants-creaming. That’s the trick with Muse – they’re like most of Led Zep’s catalogue in which you have to slip back to being 12, silly, and full of hormones.

Bellamy’s “left-leaning libertarianism” is presumably anarchism, or possibly social democracy with social libertarianism?

CassandraSays

I’m not convinced that Bellamy knows what he’s on about, politically speaking, but you’d have a hard time finding any British musician who wouldn’t break out in hives at the idea of being associated with Beck.

Still cluier than Glenn Beck. And he’s endearingly clueless, anyway.

Having someone like Beck as a fan must be so embarrassing, especially if you have any interest in politics yourself. If he ever declares himself a fan of the Manics I think Nickie might try to kill him.

I did a double take when I saw the name Bellamy then – I thought of David Bellamy and knew that couldn’t be right. 😛

I recall someone who is not Morrisey from The Smiths publicly told David Cameron that he was not allowed to like The Smiths. And then there was that whole thing with Rage Against The Machine and a GOP 2012 candidate, and every person who’s ever used Born In The USA as background to a political advert.

I couldn’t remember the name of the GOP candidate so I was tempted to just write ‘the one who looks like an even-more-plastic Ken doll’, but then realised that wouldn’t narrow it down too much. Possibly the deputy guy. Ryan? Sorry, all these horrible misogynist straight white dudes just blur into one.

That’s because he’s a disingenuous, chinless little fuckbadger who’d set his own mother on fire if he thought it might gain him a vote.

@CassandraSays The one positive I can find is that he will hopefully die some day. Although the fact that Thatcher still hasn’t flown her broomstick off this mortal coil makes me suspect I may be wrong.

There’s not a single chin between the whole cabinet, including the women. Mind you, there’s only about two women in the cabinet so there’s that.

Out of a desire to throw said boots at the Tories, I assume.

I’m Scottish. I don’t understand why anyone votes for them.

thenatfantastic

Yep. The rich vote for them because they don’t want to share the wealth with the povvo workers, the middle class vote for them because they do so well spreading fear of other groups. Listening to Tories talk you’d think 90% of the country was filled with ‘scrounging immigrants’.

I’ve actually been banned from contacting my local (Tory) MP, after he responded to one of my emails about his support for abstinence-based sex education, on official House of Commons paper, to not answer any of my questions but instead call me ‘crude and pointlessly aggressive’.

I had it framed.

Even the rich Scots I know don’t vote Tory. Obviously there must be some who do, but damned if I know any, and I went to a very snobby boarding school.

I’ve seen reading British papers after a while of reading nothing but the Guardian and I feel like the rhetoric about scroungers etc has amped up since the last time I read any of the more Tory-centric papers a few years ago. Am I imagining things or is it actually getting worse?

CassandraSays

Obviously there’s an element of birds of a feather there, since why would I have stayed in touch with anyone likely to vote Tory? And if any of my family did I think the rest of the relatives would disown them.

There’s only one Tory MP from Scotland. When Edinburgh zoo got the two pandas, there were lots of jokes about how there were now twice as many pandas as Tories in Scotland.

The rhetoric has gone up to obscene levels, it’s the government’s only focus at the moment – especially against people with disabilities. There was some research done last week about what people think about benefits, how much of the budget do they think goes to pay for JSA, what they think the levels of disability benefit fraud are etc., and it found people were overestimating it at least tenfold because of all the shit in the papers and from the gov’t every single day. The only two who actually report accurate statistics on it any more are the Graun and the Indy. Add that to workfare, the ATOS clusterfuck, Remploy shutting, the new Universal Credit Scheme, PIPs*, and every other bloody thing, people with disabilities are literally being driven to suicide by it every day. I’m getting really worried about some of my friends too, the stories you hear are just disgusting. Like, the government isn’t just fucking them over themselves, they’re using the media to get their friends and neighbours to see them as freeloading demons too. The chancellor was talking just the other day about ‘shirkers versus strivers’, it’s his new catchphrase, they’re freezing benefits way below inflation… it’s terrifying. It honestly is. Not only that but you have the erosion of workers’ rights, civil liberties, human rights, education and women’s rights… and to add insult to injury, did you know that the average fraudulent expenses claim (that they get caught for, there are many more obeying the letter but not spirit of the law) by MPs is 31 times higher than the average benefit fraud? Oh and mistakes by DWP officials cost twice as much as benefit fraud?

Gah gah rant rant. I have to stop now otherwise I could type all day.

That’s what I mean, from what I’m reading they’ve crossed the line from standard stupid politician rhetoric into outright propaganda, and it worries me. It’s like they’re trying to get people amped up to actually attack their neighbors. Maybe that’s an unintended consequence, but reading some of the comments the things people are saying about both disabled people and pensioners are just shockingly vicious.

It makes me glad that my granny and my cousin who has a visible disability are living in the heart of Labour territory.

@Cassandra It’s definitely reached propaganda levels. I have friends with visible disabilities who’ve stopped leaving the house because they have been/fear being attacked.

It’s the slimy dishonesty that gets me. For instance, Iain Duncan Smith, the festering pustule in charge of the DWP, was caught last weekend saying that benefit payments had increased by 58% under Labour, when in fact it was 8% (in 13 years). They lie and lie and lie, and if they were honest and just said ‘yeah actually we hate poor people and we don’t give a shit about helping people with disabilities’ we could fight that, everyone would see them for what they are. But instead we spend all our time debunking the rancid bullshit that drops out of their mouths every time they open them. The House of Commons has turned into the Aegean stables.

I’m honestly finding some of the comments I’m reading on articles about benefits stuff a bit scary. I mean, there have always been some people like that, but for it to escalate to the point where there’s actual violence?
