What is “Globohomo?” A comprehensive guide to the alt-right’s new obsession, with tweets

Gay Atlas, deadlifting the earth

By David Futrelle

If you’ve spent any time arguing with right-wing trolls online, you’ve probably encountered the alt-right’s new favorite buzzword (that isn’t really a word): “globohomo.” And you may have found yourself wondering: What on earth is a globohomo, anyway, and why are right-wingers so mad about it?

The term has been floating about for several years now; I first encountered it way back in 2016 on the blog of everyone’s favorite racist pickup artist, Heartiste, and our old friend fiend Roosh V is fond of it as well. But it’s gained popularity in the last year or so, serving as a sort of catch-all replacement for the term “white genocide” for some of the people who, well, used to use the term “white genocide” all the time.

Ostensibly, “globohomo” is short for “global homogenization,” a an alleged vast conspiracy to destroy “traditional” culture and values and replace them with a sort of global (naturally) corporate uniculture.

But it’s rarely used in this way, at least not exactly. For those who’ve seized upon the term, “globo” means “globalist” and therefore Jews; while “homo” (the suffix) means, well, “homo” (the slur). (Some, evidently worried that “globohomo” isn’t gay-sounding enough, add “gayplex” to it — “globohomo gayplex.”)

And so “globohomo” has come to mean something like “the global homosexual/Jewish conspiracy to degenerate our culture up real good with drag queens and anal sex and possibly Ben Shapiro.”

If that definition seems a bit incoherently exapansive, that’s because the trolls who’ve embraced the term are using it as an all-purpose epithet. Perhaps the only way to truly define “globohomo” is to see how people (and I use that term lightly) are using it on, for example, Twitter.

Here are just a few of the things that right-wing trolls think are a part of the “globohomo” agenda.

globohomo wants you childless,

living in crates

and eating bugs

while you masturbate and zonk out to a screen

This is different to the lifestyle of an average inhabitant of the manosphere how exactly? Masturbation, eating garbage, and an unhealthy obsession with certain entertainment franchises seem to be their defining traits AFAICT

All joking aside, I am actually scared right now. Hate crimes have been on the rise since the 2016 election, and I’m a little worried about the attacks that may occur on Jews and LGBTQIPAN+ people if the alt-right has a new take on an old conspiracy theory about these two groups. Delusional beliefs like this do have real-world consequences, as shown by the Pizzagate shooter and the various incel terrorists. I’m fearing for my safety, and the safety of friends who are in these communities.

@CatMara For many of them, “GloboHomo” (or whatever conspiracy) is the reason that they are all alone, obsessing over media, eating garbage, and resorting to masturbation. Really they want to identify some external and singular entity that is causing all of these problems. Many of them imagine they would be living the ideal responsible married life described by 1950s nostalgia is it were not for (insert lefty boogeyman here).

I think global racial homogeneity is mean to serve as a metaphor for the world where racial distinctions are less important and “Judge them by the content of their character, not by the color of their skin”. Similarly “White Genocide” (the elimination of white people) maybe is meant as a metaphor for the elimination of white privilege. There’s no logical, moral justification for racism, so they have to transform the end of racism into something where it makes sense to fear it.

Progressive: “I want to end racism!”
Reaction: “You want to end all of the races?! OMGWTFBBQ!?”

The idea that the world isn’t a zero-sum game, where one side can only win at the other’s expense. The author of that tweet is saying that since “The Jews” are (in his mind) preaching the idea that the world isn’t zero-sum, while simultaneously pursuing a zero-sum win in relation to all other sides (i.e. all the other ‘races’, probably), the world should push back by adopting “nationalism”, by which I assume he means ethnostates.

Music videos are nonstop degenerate globohomo shit now. I haven’t seen a single one that I’d be okay with my kids watching in years.

Anyone who came of age in the MTV era has to be perplexed and grossed out when they see what we have now.

I wonder what’s changed in 30 years?

Have you heard the music kids are listening to these days?
I’m gonna be perfectly frank. Would ya like to know what kinda conversation goes on while they’re loafin’ around that X-Box?
They’re tryin’ out Bevo, tryin’ out Cubebs, tryin’ out Tailor Mades like cigarette fiends! And braggin’ all about how they’re gonna cover up a tell-tale breath with Altoids.

One fine night, they log out of X-Box Live, headin’ for the rave at the warehouse! Libertine men and scarlet women! And Hip-hop! Shameless music that’ll grab your son and your daughter with the arms of a jungle animal instinct!

Mass-steria!

“Global homogenization”, roughly as defined solely in the quote in the post (the “full” definition has some much more problematic parts), is essentially the same as cultural hegemony in Marxist traditions. The term is also used by a lot of modern sociology and some political science outside Marxist traditions, too. It is very commonly used in reference to capitalist societies (where the “goal” is broadly considered to be a consumer/pro-corporate culture), but can be easily used in description of almost any society with structural power differentials.

That all said, I’m not sure that I trust Urban Dictionary, from late 2018, in defining anything about the origin of “globohomo” (especially not in a definition that also refers to “sexual degeneracy”). I’m going to guess that was an intentionally false etymology to try and sell the word as something more mainstream than being a fever-dream conspiracy ostensibly about gay Jews.

I’m also a little amused they chose to deflect using an essentially Marxist interpretation of culture, when that sort typically think “cultural Marxism” is a thing.

Crikey. These Joo folks are pretty versatile. 20+ years ago they were arm-in-arm, lock-step with Freemasons and the dreaded communists. Sometimes they even allowed the frightful feminists to join in for a while.

They now seem to have carelessly abandoned their former besties and, after brief dalliances with the UN and the Illuminati, have cosied up to the gay community.

I suspect that, a decade or so from now, they also will have been left in the dust and a new ‘alliance’ will be with … whomever is designated as the worst of the worst fantastical boogeymen of the moment. Buuuut, the evil complicity of joooos in making random people’s lives unbearable will never go away.

I’m glad not to live in the fevered minds of these bozos. How on earth can you live day after day fussing and fuming over nonsensical shit like this?

Im 22 years old and even I remember people defending Globohomo with “They arent going to indoctrinate your kids.”
Well here come the fags..doing exactly what they said they wouldn’t.

But the article is about parents choosing for themselves what they’re okay with their children seeing, and being okay with them seeing a gay pride parade.

If the parents are making their own call about how to raise their children, isn’t that the exact opposite of “indoctrination”? Are parents being forced to bring their children to Pride?

So much of this seems to come down to the notion: “Those people are different from me and it makes me mad!”

globohomo wants you childless,

Well, I got one out of four. But I don’t give a shit about “globohomo” and what they ostensibly want. I’m childless because I want to be, period. Also, I live in a house, eat omnivorously (but not bugs, because UGH), and haven’t masturbated or zonked out to a screen in quite some time, because that gets boring after a while.

(Also, as an aside, this latest and silliest transparent effort on the part of white supremacy to take over the world and remake it, globally-homogeneously, in their own white self-image, is hilarious…because once again, it shows how much more these guys obsess over gay sex than anyone actually having it.)

I don’t think that Marxists have a monopoly on the phrase “in a capitalist society, whomever controls the capital gets to dictate the means to which it is put, and the ends to which it is directed, up to and including the influencing of culture itself” (i.e. “money talks”) 😬

No lobster? No crab puffs, or shrimp cocktails or crawdad gumbo?* Anyway, what is or isn’t a valid source of animal protein is heavily culturally dependent; there’s plenty of folks who fry grasshoppers, stew ants, and otherwise consume all manner of creepy crawlies. Famously, snails are part of many traditional French cuisines (IMO they taste like a garlic-butter condom, but my feelings are obviously not universal)

*Fair disclosure, I won’t eat any of those things myself, but it’s pretty common to do so in the Anglosphere.

(link to incels dot co that didn’t show up in the original comment; it is titled “Women Below 55 Should Kill Themselves”)

Short answer, no. Long answer is that the community is toxic to its core and is a bucket of crabs, so there’s no end to it. Any attempts at self-improvement or moving beyond their fixation on sexual conquests are derided as “cope” (i.e. mere coping mechanisms), and “rope” (i.e. suicide) is frequently mentioned alongside, because there is no “hope” for them. “Hatefuel” is a thing that they actively seek out to validate their loathing (both of themselves and women).

So… this isn’t a secret Canadian plot to globalize our nomenclature for homo milk?

Joking aside, given how juvenile the internet discourse is, I don’t see these guys using it as some kind of not-so-clever code word for the kind of globalization that distributes the same bland consumerist monoculture we’re all inundated with. I always took it to mean “Jews making people gay (read: degenerate)”.

Your use of the words “hope”, “cope”, and “rope” inspired me to write a limerick about incels.

Took away their own hope
And couldn’t cope
They ranted online
Far from benign
And finally took to the rope

Yes, it’s awful, but it’s what came to mind.

@LaserJay
Like Ariblester already mentioned, incels are quite easily some of the worst people you will find online. They claim to be about self-improvement and self-help, but I can’t see any way that stewing in more misogyny helps or improves them. They go into downward spirals and everything just gets worse. I am told that it is hard to escape.
I obviously was never an incel, but I do know what it is like to have depression. There were days when I would wake up and just think about how I was always going to be lost and alone, and that I would never do anything worth doing. Depression is awful, and one thing that always makes it worse is spiraling, which is what incels do. I think many of these incels could be saved if they had proper mental health help, but seeing as a) they refuse all treatment and b) there is still a stigma that prevents many people from getting help with mental health issues, that seems unlikely. Which is unfortunate, because I really think many of these people could be treated, and if they aren’t they end up becoming incel “saints” and killing people.

We’ve occasionally heard from people who’ve recovered from inceldom. So it does happen, despite their community making it difficult. And I’d guess that most ex-incels won’t admit that they were ever part of that scene, because that’s pretty shameful. So I suspect that escape is more common than one would think.

I recall this post about escape, but that’s all I’ve seen. You’re probably right that more people escape. If so, I would be curious to know how they move on with their lives. I’ve read articles and confessions from former white supremacists and I imagine that there are a lot of parallels between leaving the white supremacist movement and escaping from inceldom/the MRM as a whole.

Any former incels here? No judgement, just curious.

Very revealing self-own by the manospherian whose reaction to a politician’s standing up for a woman’s right to choose an abortion is “globohomo wants you childless”.

Could not have made it plainer that these guys know they haven’t a chance of reproducing with a woman who actually wants to bear their children. What fatherhood means to them is to somehow get some woman unwillingly pregnant and then prevent her from terminating the pregnancy.

Anti-vegans can be weird.

I really don’t get that one. I mean, I’m a meat eater, and I’ll own up to the fact that I’ve made fun of vegans in the past. And yes, the pushy ones can be annoying. Mostly, though, I can’t get over people caring quite so much. So they don’t eat certain things. So what?

What I mostly don’t get about this one, though, is eating the squirrels raw. That just seems risky. I don’t know whether squirrel is one of those meats it’s safe to eat rare or not (all I know is that apparently you can just just a recipe for chicken), but who the hell knows what you could catch off them?
