We Hunted the Mammoth responds to 4 1/2 Hours of Honey Badger Videos About #CalgaryExpo

(Not an actual video; do not click.)

The Honey Badger Brigade — the (mostly) all-gal A Voice for Men spinoff group that got booted from the Calgary Expo yesterday — would like everyone to know that they refuse to see themselves as victims, you know, like feminists.

Indeed, they are so devoted to not seeing themselves as victims that they and their allies at A Voice for Men have put out roughly 4 1/2 hours of videos about their expulsion since yesterday, including three videos that are longer than an hour each. No, really: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. (I’m not including the two additional videos by Mundane Matt that AVFM has posted on its site.)

We here at We Hunted the Mammoth would like to respond to these videos with a video of our own:

Technically speaking, this video isn’t ours. We just found it on YouTube. But it is ten hours long, more than twice the length of the Honey Badger videos so far. So I think we win?

I’m starting on a Resident Evil dvd marathon. Much more fun that the Honey Badgers!

I’ve seen premarin (an estrogen pill) used as the “red pill” in some mra crap

The laughter this caused left me a wheezing mess considering how the mra understanding of that particular hormone is basically “EWW COOTIES”

Five and a half hours? You know… when Thunderf00t got fired from Freethought Blogs, he apparently obsessed about it for weeks on end. This isn’t rage, this is borderline OCD.

@teiresias: I’d be careful with that comparison. We don’t approve of casual comments about how so-and-so must be [insert mental illness here]. A lot of us are actually mentally ill. : /

Not trying to get on your case, just a friendly heads-up.

I think it’s related to last-wordism. First, this thing happens (getting thrown out of the convention/off FtB), then they go online to make the case that they did nothing wrong. They are the victims in all this. But they also have this nagging suspicion that maybe they do come across as whiney. Maybe they are in the wrong. So when they’ve finished that first statement, they obsess about it. They think: Ohh now I know what I should’ve said. And I wonder if that thing I said was clear enough? Maybe I could’ve made my point a little bit better. I should probably go back and make another statement, just to hammer home the most important points. Just so they don’t get lost in all the other stuff. It’s so obvious that I am right, but I need to make sure other people see it just as clearly as I do.

Then they go back online and make that second blog post or youtube video. Then they think: Hmmm maybe I only made this worse. I should probably go make another statement, just to clarify what I really meant. And so it continues.

At least that’s how I imagine their thought process.

I’ve seen the ‘last word’ issue crop up between our sons. It drove me to distraction – it would seem to die down, then one would have a flash of l’esprit d’escalier and they’d be back to trading insults.

It doesn’t happen anymore, because they’ve outgrown such childish behavior. They’re teenagers now.

Regarding Videos of Unusual Length, there’s a ten-hour repeat of the Narwhal Song. I know this because our older son has friends who are also teenagers. I can still recite that song from memory.

there use to be this video on YouTube that was 23 hours of a vacuum running in a dark closet. I’d always watch that when life got too extreme for my tastes.

Also, being obsessed for weeks (assuming weeks, not months) with being publicly fired doesn’t sound that unusual. There are people who become obsessed with things that don’t seem important to other people, for reasons even they can’t explain. When people can’t stop thinking irrational thoughts about topics they don’t want to think about, that’s when it makes sense to start looking into psychiatry.

Holding a grudge when you’re slighted is the human condition, not a disorder, and people who do it especially fervently can simply be described as hot-tempered, or thin-skinned, or assholes.

My donation to the videos of a ridiculous length. The thing I loved about this song when I first encountered it was how it managed to make the most ridiculous lyrics sound hardcore and profound.

…although, “I am a dwarf and I’m digging a hole: diggy diggy hole, diggy diggy hole” would still be more profound than most of what the Honey Badgers ever say even if the music wasn’t so great.

Wait, is that a woman with short hair? ::gasp:: and a woman with actual fat on her? I must have misunderstood the article. That can’t be an image of MRA allies.

I mean, they don’t know when to stop digging, so…

This whole debacle is what really irks me beyond words; the Honey Badgers choose to don the costume of “activism” to troll a panel comprised of people and opinions they disagree with yet in grand MRA fashion expect no repercussions for representing the ideologies of a hate group. That their planned participation at Calgary Expo was conducted “in stealth mode” by their own admission on their fund raiser clearly demonstrates what their intentions were -to disrupt, make people feel uncomfortable and attempt to strike a match of discord. Unless they are completely ignorant (which is a possibility) there’s no way they couldn’t have suspected that they may not be welcome or they wouldn’t have planned their participation in secret. I tend to believe they both expected and sought expulsion from the Calgary Expo in hopes to garner some publicity and create more controversy to grandstand from.

Frankly, these gals remind me of Charles Manson’s female followers. There’s more than just a touch of Atkins-Frommeism in a couple of them. Two of them completely bury the needle on The Creep-O-Meter and together, as a group, they act and carry on like inmates from a psychiatric ward on a day when the pharmacy is shut down.

Paradoxical Intention: To be clear, I am literally saying that people like this may in fact be mentally ill. I don’t think this degree of obsessiveness is within normal baselines for human behavior, and it kind of reminds me of the idea that religious fundamentalism may qualify as a mental illness as well.

I so wish SNL hadn’t gotten hold of that song and made it a joke; it almost ruins that much nicer scene when Rickie and Delia “won” the World Happiness Dance in the Brian-narrated episode of My So-Called Life.

I love Ricky and Delia in MSCL! I rewatched the series a couple of weeks ago.

No one is denying the possibility, however, we don’t know enough about him to make that assertion. The human mind is a complex thing, individuals are complex creatures. We have no way of knowing his true motivations or his thought process.

Please stop with the armchair diagnoses and “speculation”. Stop bringing up this topic. Several of us commenters have said we want to stop talking about it. A few of us have left over shit like this before.

Stop.

Sorry, thought this was the True thread. My point still stands though. Stop with the armchair speculations on mental illness.

Paradoxy, I think all of us have posted to wrong threads before. I know I’ve been avoiding that thread like the plague though, because it makes me want to bang my head against a wall and then I’d have to pay for new sheet-rock and get a friend to drive me in to the ER and then face the heckling of the ER staff every single time I drop off a patient for the rest of the summer…

… so I’m taking the coward’s way out of avoidance.

I’m such a coward when it comes to conflict.

Eurgh.

…anyway, here’s ten hours of badgers as a “warm fluffy feelings come back please?” cry:

Or something a little more daunting, but kind of soothing? Can something be more intense and more soothing at the same time?

https://youtu.be/MJbTjBLEKBU

Windows error remix. Techno, but nice. Kind of intense, though.

It’s reassuring to know that errors can be turned into such nice things, on occasion. Like, screwing up once in a while (so long as it’s a screw up that doesn’t harm anyone else) is okay and can turn out for the better, and the world will still be around in the morning.

MLK’s “I Have A Dream” speech was about… 20 minutes, not even? But you need 4.5 hours of video to complain about being asked to leave a convention. Ok.
