I admit it: I enjoy schadenfreude so much that I can usually spell the word correctly on the first try. And there’s a lot of schadenfreude in the air these days.

Indeed, I’ve been reading through the YouTube comments of the Sarkeesian Effect breakup videos I posted earlier and chuckling quietly to myself, not just at the assorted skull jokes but at the unintentional comedy, including all the bizarre contortions some Sarkeesian Effect supporters are going through in order to pretend that this ridiculous breakup is somehow less ridiculous than it actually is.

As I can’t in good conscience ever recommend that anyone actually go read the comments on YouTube, I’ve collected together some of my favorite ones. Here are the Top 11 Most Unintentionally Hilarious YouTube Comments About the Sarkeesian Effect Breakup.

1) “This is good for bitcoin The Sarkeesian Effect.”

se2goodforbitcoin

2) “Women like Anita are quite literally immune from criticism because of their gender,” he says, in the comments to a video about a “documentary” criticizing her.

se3matriarchy

3) “But mom, I love this bald White Nationalist On Paper with the skull fetish!”

se5overbearingmom

4) Huh. Some of Aurini’s fans also seem to be White Nationalists, and not just on paper.

se4betacuck

5) “In conclusion, women are bitches.”

se7bitches

6) By the way, before you criticise me, I’m a man.

se8cuntwhore7)  “This could have an effect on the image of your documentary.” You think?

se9mighthaveeffect8) Yes, because “anti-Gamers” always side with racist, woman-hating PUAs over guys who criticize them.

sei1ghaters

9) “The enemies won’t be laughing when they have not one but two documentaries tearing up their shit.” We won’t?

sei2enemies10) Nothing to see here, move along!

sei3noteffect11) Prove that Anita was wrong about the sexualization of women in video games and media generally by putting a porn star on the cover of your DVD!

sei5pornstarBONUS COMMENTS: Here are a couple of comments that are actually funny on purpose. At least I hope the first one was meant as a joke.

I am quite surprised that our enemies have as yet not made use of it.

No surprise there. Your “enemies” are all busy making popcorn. We don’t have to make use of this. They are bringing themselves down without our help.

I ran into that Alice Die For Me person before on a video about welfare. Ended up blocking him. I don’t remember what exactly he said, something along the lines of single mothers being whores who shouldn’t have had sex if they didn’t want children, and a bunch of other stuff about how poor people are responsible for all their own problems and welfare is bullshit, etc.

Can’t say I’m surprised to see him here.

I’m dying a little inside because commenter #6 is using as his profile picture one of the most awesome bands of the 90s, Veruca Salt.

And seriously, if Nina and Louise knew the sort of #%$^ that was using their image, then the confrontation would be well worth seeing.

I’m hoping Aurini replaces all of Owen’s scenes with footage of toy skulls in his version. Skulls on a couch, skulls in a bathtub, etc.

Women are the problem because women are the fucking b*tches of society

…This is awful, but I find the tautology amusing. That sentence basically reads, ” Women are the problem because women are [derogatory slur for women].” Women are the problem because women are women. But no, misogyny isn’t a problem in society at all.

Suffrajitsu, of course they bring in the Jews. Crank magnetism requires it.

(Crank magnetism is a term for the way in which people with fringe/pseudo beliefs rarely have just one. Anti-Semitism and these flaking napstitches* go together like cockroaches and moist garbage)

Wasn’t there something about Aurini only owning the one skull, and having to move it every time the scene moved to a new room?

Imagine Aurini trying to do a tracking shot from one room to another, but he needs skulls in both, so he has a small crew of people who’s sole job it is to find clever ways to move the skull around off camera.

The shot starts moving, Aurini starts walking, and all of a sudden the skull is thrown across the camera. It keeps moving, but the skull is not on the desk where it should be! The camera moved too quick. Aurini finishes his walk and now leans on his desk, when suddenly an arm pops up and deftly places the skull in its rightful place before Aurini looks down and notices its absence.

This would make an awesome comedy sketch.

*looks sadly at my skull*

I was in a production of Hamlet in college. We had a practical joke contest and it was decided that the winner would receive Yorick’s skull as a trophy when the show wrapped. I don’t want to go into how I won (I must protect the innocent, you see) but I did and I’ve had that skull ever since. I love him and he seems to love me too.

Now I’m second-guessing myself over keeping it. I’m sad because some misogynistic, racist, Dark Enlightenment goon has ruined skull ownership.

Nequam, I have one too, although it’s not antique. It’s from the 1980s. My dad was a high school science teacher and gave it to me after he retired and cleaned out his classroom. Maybe I’ll use it to make “the Aurini Effect” or whatever I’ll call it (would “the Aurini Defect” be ableist?). I like kirbywarp’s idea, although I’ll have to come up with something other than tossing the skull around.

Oh, definitely real bone. For one thing, the usual model skeleton doesn’t have a deviated septum:

(There’s a small light in its mouth for Halloween.) The bone has actually patinated somewhat over the century-plus, which makes it look particularly striking.

All those empty skulls might indicate that they have a bit more self-awareness than we give them credit for.

No shame for you skull owners. It’s just funny when it’s Aurini because it’s such an obvious part of his “trying to look cool and edgy” persona.

Every day, I regret that I didn’t follow my instincts when the project was first announced, drop everything else in my life, and devote 2014 to following Owen and Aurini around with a camera crew to produce my own “making of” documentary. Title: “The Sarkeesian Effect Effect.”

Every. Single. Day.

Follow your dreams, everyone. Don’t make the mistake I did.

It’s one of a set of novelty remotes that include Control a Man, Control a Cat and so on.

I heard that in the first hour they got 236 orders for Control-a-Woman from MRAS, who were furious on finding out that it was a gag gift. But really going ballistic were 491 MRAs who thought that Control-a-Man was an actual device invented and promoted by the International Feminist Conspiracy to turn men into submissive slaves. Control-a-Cat was completely ignored — everyone knew it was impossible.

I always find those who think that this is some kind of “war” to be absolutely silly. You’re on The Internet arguing about video games and how you think that icky girls shouldn’t be allowed to have any because cooties. And how Anita’s the ickiest girl of them all because how dare she say there’s a problem with your games!

[…]This would make an awesome comedy sketch.

All you’d need is a chain-smoking bald guy (with a good sense of humor), a turtleneck, a glass of apple juice, and a cheap suit!

If he doesn’t smoke, you can always use candy sticks.

Well, when Paul Elam collects enough money to build the Men’s Rights Museum (with men’s lavatories only), maybe The Sarkeesian Effect will make the silver screen after all.

It’s sad when the parodies start to seem as plausible as actual events, if not more so.

Control-a-Cat was completely ignored — everyone knew it was impossible.

If Manospherians at least have the sense to comprehend this basic fact, I have hope for them yet.
