Dean Esmay's Secret Plan to Fight Sexism by Calling Everyone a Whore

Let’s say that you’re the “Managing Editor” of a website known far and wide for calling women “whores,” as well as an assortment of other 4- and 5-letter words generally considered crude sexist slurs. Let’s just say that you had a convention, and that during this convention your official spokeswoman went on a bit of a name calling rampage on Twitter, repeatedly attacking a woman who had tried to report on said convention as an “attention whore,” a “fame whore,” and a “little whore,” and offering similar “whore”-based assessments to other critics of the site.

And let’s just say that despite all this you also had a desire to convince the world that your site was not actually the misogynistic cesspit that it so obviously is. Would you:

1) Apologize for using the words “whore” and “bitch” and “c*nt” and other similar sexist epithets against women.

2) In your capacity as editor, quietly remove the word “whore” (and “bitch” and “c*nt”) from future postings on the site, and tell your PR maven to maybe come up with a less misogynistic insult of choice.

3) Start calling men whores so that no one can accuse you of hating women because, see we use “whore” to refer to men too!

The answer, of course, is 3 — at least if you’re Dean Esmay, “Managing Editor” of A Voice for Men. In a recent comment thread on AVFM, he declared:

CONFIDENTIAL TO D— E—-: No one is buying your bullshit. Also, if you want to try to convince the world that you’re a Friend of Sex Workers, you should probably stop using the word “whore” as an insult for women or men.

Yeah, it was a few months ago. My first exposure to it, then. Mind-boggling stuff, left me somewhere between flabbergasted/almost laughing at the idiocy, and furious at the presumptuousness.

Yeah, I had a Manosphere overload a while back and took a break from the blog. And look at what I missed!

BTW since I’m thinking of Tepper anyway, The Companions is worth a read for anyone who’s a devoted member of the cult of the Furrinati, as is The Family Tree.

I have mixed feelings about The Family Tree, but I really loved that twist in the middle of the book. Did not see it coming.

A cult?? cults are interesting, the wierder, the funnier.. But why have us guessing. Is it the LessWrong cult, with the hilarious Roko’s basilisk?

Anyways Sithrak is the best cult I know, covert, convert!

Heretical question. Don’t you fear the wrath of Sithrak? or , no will not make a difference anyways.. some things are best left unexplained.. gotta go, the Elohim have set up a Cloned Orgy just for me, as i demanded, I hope it will be to my satisfaction.
