4chan incels memes men who should not ever be with women ever misogyny reddit TROOOOLLLL?

The “Aborted Girlfriend” meme will hurt your brain

By David Futrelle

So this is a thing that exists. Take a moment to soak it in. It’s perfectly fine if you react like this:

The good news? It’s probably a joke — a pitch-perfect parody of incel logic rather than an example of it. At least that’s my guess. The meme (a version of the “ideal girlfriend” meme) seems to have originated on 4chan — the reference to “anon” is a bit of a giveaway — and has made it to Reddit and Twitter as well.

So far the reaction on Braincels, the main incel subreddit, has been a bit muted; some of the regulars are befuddled by it, others see it, as they see every bit of “evidence” that life sucks for them, as “suicide fuel.” Though they may be joking when they say that too.

I haven’t seen it show up on Incels.me — at least not yet.

Weirdly, the meme got a much more enthusiastic hearing in the ProLife subreddit.

“Not gonna lie, this got my all teary-eyed,” admitted someone called TheEmeraldCrusader.

“I’ve seen this popping up in some sections of social media that are probably less-visited by people in this sub,” wrote Yesofcoursenaturally,

and it’s been getting a good chunk of positive feedback.

Obviously there’s a layer of (dark) humor to it. But really, this is making some people think more about the issue in a good, if hard to describe way.

OnAllLevelsIAmBoJack agreed:

Anything that gets people talking about it, honestly. The government has “made up its mind” in my country. Anyone who dissents is considered a misogynist by default… That’s why it’s critical women share things like this

EpistemicClosure thought it might be an effective recruiting tool:

This will be good for attracting “incels” into the pro-life movement. They already lean sympathetic too, so it’s very fertile ground.

But not everyone on the subreddit was thrilled by the prospect of incels joining their movement.

“We don’t want them!” declared leathercanid.

“Yeah I don’t know if men who believe they’re entitled to sex and angry that they aren’t getting it are ones to seek out for a pro-life cause,” justtotossit suggested, noting that women tend to be “even pickier” when sex could easily lead to an un-terminatable pregnancy.

Incels don’t care about that. They don’t think they’re ever going to have sex anyway. They’re happy to support anything that hurts women, even if it (theoretically) hurts them too.

H/T — This tweet from @BenIsYourHero that alerted me to the existence of this thing.

Welp, in local news, DoFo has pulled the trigger on another of his hideous campaign promises and scrapped the sex ed changes implemented by the Wynne government, effectively rolling the dial back to 1998 (conveniently before the legalization of gay marriage!)

Incidentally, satire newspaper the Beaverton has the best take on it:

Doug Ford replaces sex-ed curriculum with old copy of Playboy found in woods

I realize that it’s satire, but it’s really not far off from what tweens and high school will be using for sexual education: PornHub and Xhamster. That’s right kids, listen to your new sex ed teacher, James Deen! He’ll show you the proper choking technique for when you’re sexually assaulting your significant other!

And if that wasn’t bad enough, blogTO demonstrates the real rationale:

https://www.blogto.com/city/2018/07/ontario-sex-ed-curriculum/

Religious groups like the Campaign Life Coalition were very vocal in their criticism of Ontario’s modern sex-ed lesson plan when it was introduced in 2015, calling it “radical” and decrying lessons about the “immoral practice” of masturbation and “the idea that being male or female is merely a ‘social construct’.”

The group also took up issue with schools teaching anything about the LGBTQ community, writing that such lessons would “normalize homosexual family structures and homosexual ‘marriage’ in the minds of 8-year-olds, without regard for the religious/moral beliefs of families.”

This is the core of it: wanting to keep the LGBT community, especially the T part of that community, as second-class citizens. They lost on gay marriage (at least for the time being), but that doesn’t mean they won’t do everything in their power to remind gay and trans people that they’re unwanted “deviants” that have to hide a part of themselves in the shadows where it’s easier to fall victim to the next Bruce McArthur. They want gay kids in the closet, they want trans kids to suffer their dysphoria in shame, they want license to at least ignore the ongoing changes to society like cowards or at worst indoctrinate their children into their own petty bigotries.

They just found more human remains in the ravine there on Mallory Crescent! I live within walking distance and passed by the place last March. Apparently there were still body parts mere metres from where I tread!

All this just after Pride Month ends, no less!

No, no, not having any of this bullshit and either will the LGBT community of this province. I guarantee that next year’s Pride parade is going to be a giant middle finger to Dipshit Doug! And that’s going to be after a year of pushback and organizing. Funny how all those “proud” corporate entities seem to evaporate the minute the calendar hits July.

Just as a side note, I have no idea what happened to Michael Coren, but I’m liking this mea culpa of his. He’s still got a ways to go, but keep it up, Mike.

That lots of porn studios have blacklisted Deen encourages me. That lots of studios still hire him disgusts me.

Another industry in dire need of unionization.

On a porn-related note, Stormy Daniels was just arrested for a performance in a Columbus, Ohio strip club. Apparently Ohio has a law that performers cannot be touched, which a) has NEVER been enforced before, and b) would also require the arrest of the toucher, who has not been mentioned in any reports.

But I’m sure this is not a politically motivated arrest at all, nosireebob.

Hey everyone,

I haven’t commented here before, but I just wanted to say that, if you’re in the UK, there are a lot of opportunities to protest right now.

I will be at the demo in Brighton this evening and protesting Trump in London tomorrow. There is also — and I think this is so important — a protest against Tommy Robinson (and Trump) this Saturday the 14th.

Tommy Robinson co-founded the racist EDL and many of his supporters will be in London on Saturday. There were thousands of them at a similar “Free Tommy” rally in June, and they were able to roam the streets harassing people. This time they won’t be unopposed.

If you are able to make it this Saturday, please consider coming out against both Trump and Tommy Robinson. We need to visibly challenge hate and division as it appears here in the UK as well.

Weatherwax: I suspect the embassy warning was a deliberate attempt to lower the number of Americans abroad showing up to support the protestors. It would be just like President Dumpsterfire to fear the idea that someone outside the country might realize that he’s not particularly popular among Americans. (Hence his constant reference to the Electoral College vote rather than to the popular vote–the latter shows just how weak his support in this country really is.)

******

Expecting intellectual consistency from pro-lifers is a fool’s errand. I’ve personally heard one shout to a counter-protestor, “No woman ever died from pregnancy; they died from complications to pregnancy.”

When you’re dealing with that sort of flailing desperation, it’s not surprising that you’ve got at least a portion of the pro-life community actively seeking incel support.

I’m assuming Ohio’s law is an anti-prostitution measure that’s just being creatively and selectively applied, here. Since nowhere in the U.S. uses anything like the Nordic model, the usual fate is that the woman is almost invariably the one targeted for arrest.

I don’t think the never-born, imaginary girlfriends would want to be with these creeps, either, but once you indulge in a fantasy, everything goes the way you want anyway.

So the incels have even more reasons to mourn the non-existence of a sammich makin’ perfect sex partner. Good. Yet another plus for pro-choice.

She (Stormy Daniels) actually touched a, possibly undercover, police officer or two or three. But the law makes it illegal for a nude or partially nude performer to either touch or allow themselves to be touched by a patron. There is some questuon over whether it even applies to her because it was a special performance and also the law never gets enforced so it was obviously politically motivated.

Weatherwax: the state department recommends citizens stay out of anything political ever, or any parades, or … really, why don’t you all just stay home please?

I recall a mandatory pre-travel debrief by a State Dept critter, informing my group that we must not talk politics because it’s dangerous, and that the bathtub is the safest place if shooting or shelling breaks out. I was going to Montreal, staying with family, the safest city in North America (the rest of us debriefees were also going to Montreal, or to some equally innocuous place).

They did have one nice tip: wrap a rubber band around your wallet, to help slow down pickpockets. The rubber band will make it harder to slip the wallet out.

There are a lot of groups – almost too many – that I’d want to march with. Probably going to gravitate towards the Latin American contingent, as we were hanging out with a few people just recently who said there might be a sort of joint grouping marching together.

Is that still useful these days? I remember watching our old bathtub get removed; it was a pretty weighty metal one, and I can believe it would do a good job of stopping incoming debris from the sides and holding together if stuff fell on it from above. The replacement is just a plastic thing, probably not even glass reinforced, and I suspect lots of modern places are the same.

weirwoodtreehugger: chief manatee

It’s very disturbing that 3 undercover cops went to try and bust Stormy Daniels for obviously political reasons. Was the police department taking it upon themselves to avenge Trump? Or was somebody in the administration asking the police force to do their bidding? Either way, it’s FUCKED up.

I also just heard on MSNBC via The Star that Trump has threatened trade war with the UK over May’s “soft brexit” plan. He’s demanding a hard brexit. So, there’s something else to protest. Whatever anyone thinks of May or her brexit plan, and I can’t imagine most of the British mammotheers are big fans of hers, Trump has no place meddling in your domestic political affairs.

Why not? We always bend over for the US. But it’s not like the tories are competent enough to steer brexit anyway. We’ll probably get a hard brexit by default.

Good for you.

I don’t like May, but I don’t hate her. She is the walking definition of the glass cliff (ie when something’s about to go shit-faced, put a woman in charge; you get credit for promoting a woman, but she carries the can if it’s awful (even when she didn’t create it) and none of your mates are tainted. If she salvages it, you get credit for putting her there. Plus if she doesn’t achieve the impossible, that’s women sunk as leaders for another 10 years).

And all of that is without discussing “how to be a woman”. You know, likeable in him is slutty in her, strong in him is inflexible in her, on message in him is boring in her.

All brexits don’t make sense, IMO. Hard Brexit assumes we still have an empire. Soft Brexit is eerily like being inside, only now we don’t get a say. That’s why I voted remain. I have a number of friends who voted for Lexit (left wing Brexit); I got it, but I kept saying “have you seen the people who will be negotiating?”.

So I’m pleased May finally jumped. We’ll see what happens next.

(Apologies to all who don’t give a damn about UK politics, give it 48 hours.)

@Weatherwax, regarding ‘glass cliff’:
For the Canadian version, see Kim Campbell. She took over after a prime minister who had all the charm and oiliness of a used car salesman, and instead tended to be rather blunt and honest. She took over in the middle of a civil war on the Conservative side of Canadian politics, and ran the Progressive Conservative/centrist/’Red Tory’ side against the more extremist ‘Reform Party’. The people running the party had absolutely no idea of what to do with her, and ran advertising that basically alienated anybody to the left of her, while anybody to the right of her was generally already going to the Reform Party.

I kind of would have liked to see her actually hold power for longer, just because she was such a frank person for a politician, and didn’t take much to the fripperies and pomp of the job.

Instead the Progressive Conservative Party became a second-rate party while the Reform Party split off further, became the Alliance Party, and then staged a hostile takeover of the original party to form the modern Conservative party, which includes way too many people who see the Republicans in the U.S. as something to emulate.

epitome of incomprehensibility

@Katamount – Well said. I was just hearing about the sex-ed curriculum changes on the CBC radio. They were contrasting it with the Quebec reforms (and I’m not trying to be Quebec > Ontario here; Quebec was dragging their heels on putting sex-ed in schools on any wide level for TEN years because of conflicting interests, and now it’s finally back).

But then the interviewer asked the Quebec guy in a seemingly anxious voice, after talking about how the curriculum would start in kindergarten, “Would children that young learn about same-sex relationships?”*

Er, is that supposed to be scary? Teachers wouldn’t be talking about what sex organs go where, anyway. It could be just as simple as who likes who.

I mean, I would’ve hated it if I hadn’t learned what “gay” meant before my parents had a chance to tell me (my mother is homophobic, I guess from a combination of religion and finding random things gross, and I’m bi). It wasn’t the best context, since one kid had used it to insult another, and the teacher corrected him, saying, “That’s not an insult.” When I found out it meant “a boy who likes boys or a girl who likes girls in a romantic way”** I thought, “Oh? That’s all? Why is that bad?”

*He said, no, not specifically; that’d be around grade 3-4

**Of course queerness encompasses a lot more than that, but I was 9!

Brexit is undoubtedly a disaster. The only people who do have a shadow of a point are the Lexiters, and in practice I believe they are mistaken – Brexit will inflict so much damage on the UK economy (and a little damage on the EU’s) that left programmes will become harder/impossible to implement if (when!!!) we even get a decent government, and as ever it will hit the poorest and most vulnerable the hardest. The disaster capitalists like Rees-Mogg and Hunt will coin it in, while ordinary people face job losses, rocketing food prices, welfare cuts and cuts to any kind of public investment like infrastructure, education and the NHS. Not to mention Trump et al buying up the NHS and selling us (unlabelled) food that does not meet EU standards (animals kept under even worse conditions than ours which are bad enough already, hormone-fed beef and chicken that has to be chlorine-washed etc. etc …)

I think most of us know the EU isn’t any kind of perfect guardian angel, but it’s bloody obvious what Trump and Putin want – and that’s a lot worse.

Anyway, even though it’s not likely the odd mammotheer will bump into each other in the crowd – though stranger things have happened 🙂 – it’s still nice to know there will be a sprinkling of us there 🙂

On the second London march too – oh my giddy FSM but that was a crowd and a half! Actually felt pretty knackered at the end, because we found ourselves (at random) somewhere roughly in the middle of the march – which meant there were so many people ahead that it took ages to get started. Trafalgar square was absolutely rammed when we got there!

Loads of brilliant signs, I can’t remember a tenth of them there were so many. The Child-Catcher from chitty-chitty-bang-bang was there in person, plus a lot of signs referencing … the jailing of children, the climate change denial, the misogyny, the racism … Trump, il a tout pour plaire. Huge range of different kinds of people. Quite a few USAnians on the march, which was nice 🙂

Since this has sort of become a politics thread, did anyone see the Rod Rosenstein press conference announcing the indictments against 12 Russian intelligence officers for the DNC hack?

The interesting part was the editorializing at the end. He talked about how the party of the victim doesn’t matter, every American, no matter the party should approach this as an attack on the country and keep that in mind.

A lot of people seem to think this is a warning that more indictments are coming, they will be Americans, and Republicans are probably going to be upset about them. It was the super stodgy man’s way of saying
http://67.media.tumblr.com/d6b2f68075df0d9fb4ea188f2bcfdbba/tumblr_inline_o8sfa8sOnp1u8q5k9_500.gif

The obvious choice for the next indictment would be Roger Stone. And I’m sure he will be indicted. But he’s not big enough for Mueller and Rosenstein to worry about the political fallout. Now this of course could mean they plan to indict Trump. But that’s still a ways off I think.

Is an indictment against Donald Trump Jr. forthcoming?

Egads, I hope so. For extra troll power, I hope the indictment comes down on July 27th. To mark the two year anniversary of Trump inviting Russia to hack Hillary Clinton.

I’m also wondering about why Trump is endorsing Boris Johnson. Is he connected to Putin in any way? Is Putin wanting to meddle and get him elected PM? Idk, it was just a strange thing for Trump to do.
