announcements BINGO! MRA PUA red pill

MRA Bingo Brainstorming Thread!

In it to win it.
In it to win it.

A couple of years back. with the help of the commentariat here, I put together an MRA Bingo Card Generator. I’ve been meaning to do a new and improved version of this for a while — as well as a companion PUA/Red Pill Bingo Card Generator, and possibly even a couple of others (Derailing Bingo? Dark Enlightenment Bingo? GamerGate Bingo?).

I know some of you all have been playing Troll Bingo in the comments. So let me know which of these card generators sound like the most amusing to you. And then let’s brainstorm about what to put in the list for each!

Also, if you can come up a way to actually play MRA Bingo, let me know. Certainly in every big thread with trolls in it, commenters could print out cards for themselves and see how many squares they can fill. Or we could set a specific time, and one of us, acting as Bingo Boss, could send you all to a particular MRA post or discussion thread elsewhere and you all could compete to see who could get a bingo first.

I’m kind of thinking this could become a thing.

Anyway, let’s get brainstorming!

For MRAs I can’t believe we forgot “Jezebel article from 2007!”

For PUAs

“Eastern European women are better than western women”

For MGTOWs
“Why do you care about us going our own way?”
“Wives are terrible because they want a house with furniture in it.”

General Bingo: (quotes are from actual MRAs)

Women just don’t want tough manly jobs

Women are too frail for tough manly jobs

Misdirection Bingo (from shit I heard yesterday):

But MY niece/daughter/girlfriend/wife/BFF never complains about sexism!

If you really cared about changing sexism in the FDNY/Army, you would join it

But men have to register for Selective Service!

But men die more often at the workplace!

Feminists just want to blame men!

The Village Voice is a biased source!

#gamergate Bingo (from actual shit I heard on Tuesday):

There were only like 5 people in that chatroom

There were only like 10 people in that chatroom

There were only like 30 people in that chatroom

It was just kids from 4chan talking trash in that chatroom

There’s no proof to connect 4chan and that chatroom

There’s no proof to connect the #gamergate hashtag to that chatroom

There’s no proof to connect the #notyourshield hashtag to that chatroom

Adam Baldwin came up with #gamergate

#gamergate is a grassroots movement

#gamergate isn’t about Zoe Quinn

Just because #gamergate started out harassing Quinn doesn’t mean it’s not about video game journalistic integrity now

#gamergate has ALWAYS been about fighting nepotism in the video game industry

4channers hate social media

No one believed Lawfag was a lawyer

Those threats weren’t really real; they were jokes

You don’t get the culture of 4chan

4chan can’t police itself, so the joke threats are inevitable

Consent as a terrifying slippery slope, i.e.:

-if you find yourself alone with a woman, the only way to avoid jail time is to get a notarized agreement in writing. (Words, facial expressions, and body language, what do they mean?)
– marriage = blanket consent for eternal sexual availability (but only on the wife’s part)
– consent to one = consent to all. If a girl has ever had sex, even once, that means she has no right to deny any other man sex.

If you want to turn a woman on and drive her to heights of sexual ecstasy, spit in her mouth during sex. This works on all women because it worked for me once.

In honor of the creepy expat in the other thread…

In Foreign Lands, everyone thinks it’s just fine for middle-aged men to “date” teen and tween girls, which is the only thing Foreigners are ever right about.

(bonus points to be given if the dude in question actually uses the word “foreigner” without realizing that while he’s in one of the countries he’s talking about it describes him, not the locals)

Soooo many good ones here. I haven’t even read the first page of comments, but I’m thinking I won’t think of anything new. Therefor, please forgive men if I’m repeating stuff:

Women don’t have the right to refuse sex.

It’s not rape if you badger her incessantly, until she finally gives in to the inevitability of sex.

Marriage is a life-long consent to sex
or
It’s impossible to rape your wife.

Any woman who won’t have sex with me is a whore.

Virgins are just whores who haven’t been paid, yet.

No one would want to have sex with you, anyway.

Michelle C Young

Don’t forget

Stopping to get consent is a mood-killer.

“Women’s work,” including jobs that were mostly done by women 2 or 3 decades ago, but were actually closed to women a century or more ago. Examples include secretarial work (once forbidden for women) and knitting (knitting guilds used to forbid women). These “women’s work” jobs are then described as being only suitable for women, because they require no brains, logic, skills, or reasoning ability.

Men are hunters, women are gatherers.

Women can’t fight.

Women fight dirty.

“We didn’t HAVE to provide for you cave-women!” Of course, completely ignoring the fact that if ancient people didn’t work together, there would be no people today.

Famous women with un-perfect bodies devalue the pussy.

Any implication that being accused of rape (falsely or otherwise) is more likely to ruin someone’s life than ACTUALLY BEING RAPED. Guh.

Narrowing of the definition of rape to the Violent Stranger Jumping Out Of The Bushes In The Middle Of The Night, Who Only Preys On Girls Who Are Drunk And Dress Slutty And Walk Through The Bad Part Of Town, So What Did They Expect? Double Guh.

I feel kinda dirty playing this game. But I think it shows the MRA argument that we aren’t familiar with their thinking is pretty specious.

@A Wolverine

I’ve never heard of “the Bayonetta gambit”, but I will say that was a dime-a-dozen rpg. And the one-liners were so cringe-worthy and overly sexual. It reminded me of a PS2 game I picked up back in the day called Orphen. There were anime cut-scenes, and it was back when I was big into anime. The gameplay was eh, the story was [insert shounen anime here], but it was pretty enough. Bayonetta was about the same, and the name of the main was just as creative lol. I felt like they tried to play off of the final fantasy recipe for success in the later years: pretty cutscenes, forgettable battle sequences, and superfluous roleplay elements that just dragged the game down.

In any case, good fucking luck finding an rpg without a female main that wears gravity-defying cloth scraps or something shaped to an impossible body. Even Skyrim added boobs to their heavy armor for female mains. Completely ruined the otherwise gorgeous Ebony set and begged the question of whether or not breastplates had cup sizes.

Rockstar should rock out another Red Dead. Now that was a game with some badass females AND males. Show me the person who says John Marston isn’t a feminist, and I’ll show you a gamebro lying to himself.

The “Bayonetta Gambit” is just a game-related twist on the old “you wear lipstick/high-heels/shave your underarms/wear a bra/fuck guys/like looking sexy for a guy, so you’re not a *real* feminist!” canard.

Some people didn’t get the memo about women taking control of their own sexuality actually being a really important part of feminism, and still a contentious point of argument today between various flavours of feminist.

Think you might be a bit confused ryeash, i referred to the “feminists cant like games with boobs in them” argument as the bayonetta gambit, alluding to the Game Bayonetta which is an action game similar to devil may cry or ninja gaiden, not an rpg

ryeash

Um, excuse me?? I totally put ten hours into that game four years ago, I think I know what I’m talking about (no, no I do not). I remember a British demon woman in an Elvira-type catsuit, horrible dialogue, and being bored. I mostly segued into rpgs because I wanted to chatter about video games. Plus, Bayonetta really did remind me of Orphen.

@strivingally

Thanks for the explanation. I wasn’t aware feminism had a dress code…do skirts automatically fail me, or can they be a certain length? Also, does trimming violate the “no shaving” rule? Can I wear nude lipstick ala George Sand, or is it a strict “no lipstick” policy? Can I wear chapstick? I’m guessing gloss is an automatic zero. How baggy do my jeans have to be? Do I *have* to wear white wifebeaters, or can I go with a lovely brown to suit my eyes?

I think I just failed feminism.

ryeash

Stupid stereotypes aside, as a woman who enjoys video games, I’ve had to begrudgingly accept the blatant sexism at times. I’ve played games that I have really enjoyed while uncomfortably noticing female PCs’ armor shrinking every time I upgrade it. That said, I try to avoid the games where it’s really in your face. I’ve heard wonderful things about God of War and how innovative it was and how fun the fight scenes were, but I couldn’t get past the ginormous ridiculously-muscled main character, the butchery of my favorite myths, and the disposability of the women in it.

The way to play it would be for people to have cards with random selections in each column. B for a random selection of one sort and I for a random selection of another. That way each persons card is different and they mark their card as the the trolls comment till someone gets a bingo, I have no idea what the prize could be

If fruitloopsie came up with FeMRA bingo, that would basically expand our bingo empire. I’m trying to remember the name of this one FeMRA blogger. She dated this weird Norwegian guy who knew Anders Breivik? Do I have that right? Or at the very least agreed with Anders Breivik.

Anyway, I remember a particularly appalling, self-loathing post where she talked about how all women (even her) are prone to hypergamy because science. She talked about how because of this, she would try SO HARD in her daily life to remain humble, submissive and to keep her self-esteem “low” so she could remain loyal to her boyfriend and get his approval as well as male approval in general. The comments were equally appalling stating that she would never be able to do so because nature but it’s “nice” that she’s trying. But since she’s a woman she will always be bad. Watching that exchange was so painful. I honestly feel sorry for this girl. I get that she believes terrible things and may herself be not that great of a person but a part of me just wants to save her. Lord.

Anyway, something about FeMRAs believing that hypergamy stuff and “trying” really hard to please the menz by “promising” they will never do it to them.

I think I know the bloke, E. Berge? He is the most prominent Norwegian MRA anyway, completely unhinged (got arrested because the threatened the police). So I googled that and I ended up with the same girl as cassandrakitty just mentioned.

Fuck internalization. (Doesn’t excuse the FeMRAs, but explains a little where it’s from…)
