Incels are now mad at the Buddha for being a tall, thin “gigachad”

Buddha breaks another heart

By David Futrelle

Now the incels are mad at the Buddha.

Seems that several weeks ago one prolific Incels.co commenter called speedtypingincel discovered a post on a Buddhist message board claiming, based on an extremely close reading of ancient Buddhist texts, that the historical Buddha was an astonishing 6 foot 7 inches tall, thus rendering him irresistible to women and allowing him to “heightmog” virtually all other men of his time and ours.

“That’s the reason he had so many followers,” speedtypingincel wrote. “BONES are the most important thing in the world.”

The incels have been raging about this claim ever since.

“A rich chad who had everything in life telling poor incels not to give a fuck,” complained someone called Sparrow’s Song.

Sounds like a conspiracy to keep people docile and prevent violent uprisings. … Now I understand why the TaIiban destroyed that Buddha statue in Afghanistan, it was a reminder of a rich chad hypocrite who told people just to cope while both physical reality itself and society fucked them over and it was a massive stone heightmog as well.

Not sure this is an entirely accurate description of Buddha’s teachings, bro.

Glad they did it, the last thing they needed was cucked symbol of coping and accepting getting bullied while they are in the middle of an uprising against the biggest bullies in the world. … Sand prophets, messianic manlets, and ancient Greek high IQ posters will always be better than bootlicking buddhists.

A commenter called Neggr was a bit more concise, complaining that “Buddha was a slim gigachad.” Yet another griped that the Buddha was “a mogging machine” — that is, a man who out-alphas all the other men in his vicinity — “who had everything.”

More than a few expressed their astonishment that a a prince would give up a life of pleasure and ease to take up a quest for enlightenment. As someone called Hell put it

Buddha had a wife and even children and god knows how many concubines he fucked until he got bored and decided to have his extended vacation beach party.

Then he gets back and tries to convince everyone to be celibate lmao.

I’m just sitting here, and all I can think is, “I know that I don’t understand Buddhism very well, but apparently I’m doing better than some people.”

David, I really like this post and it is so connected to something that has been on my mind a lot which is that I am so tired of apologizing and feeling guilty for wanting and being attracted to tall, handsome ripped guys. It’s like no matter how much I resist all the poison of incels they say stuff that at the bottom is so much in culture anyway. Even though they say they are outsiders their misogyny is just overall misogyny and I hate that. The whole incel thing creeped me out extra because my name is actually Stacey but now I wear that with a badge of honor and am more inspired to be comfortable saying *yes* I do actually only want “Chad”. It bothers me kind of to use their language but maybe it’s an act of resistance?

Buddha was a slim gigachad

Umm…wasn’t the Buddha known for being fat? All the Laughing Buddha statues I’ve seen are fat.

I’m not a Buddhist, so I could be wrong. Apologies to any Buddhists.

The fat laughing ‘buddha’ images are actually of a chap called Budai.

Budai was a monk who, so legend has it, lived in the 10th century. He may have been an incarnation of the future Buddha; and over time has sort of conflated into general Buddhism.

The earliest, Indian images show him slim. The fat-bellied image comes later, artistically, and is more an East Asian thing. Whether either of them more accurately represents the historical man, I have no idea.

I do know that he went through a period of intense fasting to the point of starvation, and then later said it did no good spiritually.

The Laughing Buddha is apparently a depiction of a Chinese monk named Budai. Budai was a Buddhist himself, and he has a similar name, so we Westerners think they are the same guy.

Buddha the person is often depicted in art as being thin. But I assume that these aren’t meant to be accurate portraits of the person any more than the paintings of Jesus are. They tell you more about the artist and the culture than they do about the physical characteristics of the original mythic figure.

Buddhism and Inceldom are kinda polar opposites. A lot of people everywhere feel like they would suffer less if they had more stuff. A major part of Buddhism is the idea that your feeling of dissatisfaction is not connected what you have. Even if you got what you currently want, you would still want more, and thus the negative feelings would continue. Meanwhile Incels insist that their sadness and anger exist precisely because they can’t get laid. So obviously they want to call Buddha a liar somehow. Of course they are also opposites in that Buddhism is actually coherent and is meant to actually help its followers.

Thanks, that is a good point! In addition to tall, handsome and ripped they only have to be kind to me and a loving person in general. I think that’s how it should be. All that is important and it should be.

And on that note just today two wonderful things happened that might lead me to a guy just like that. He’s in my BDSM social group so how I’m going to get to know him is a little sensitive and I don’t want to go all TMI but I’m kind of being fixed up with him. I don’t know him but have seen him and he’s gorgeous and my friends in the group who are wonderful amazing women who I admire and are like mentors told me how sweet he is and that’s he’s a great guy and said he is up for some really cool sounding stuff as a way of connecting that really has me not able to stop thinking about it. I already got some really cool looking gear that is designed for a guy’s body and I already am thinking of him and if this works out I can’t wait to get together with him. So this is kind of new for me but it’s been building up for me thanks to the wonderful supportive women in my group and all the stuff about incels complaining just because women get to actually choose made me think about it.

Lol, you are awesome! It’s so cool because we this guy we aren’t going to have sex at all but we are going to look like porn stars together but what incels don’t get is that when we do that it’s not all one person just being a porn star for the other…it’s us *together* and it reminds me of dancing with a guy. And like how reality differs from creep’s minds it’s always collaborative and caring. I have loved discovering how my wanting to be caring fits in perfectly with becoming dominant in BDSM. And so that’s why this whole thing that’s going on is not just exciting but really romantic.

When people refer to ‘the’ Buddha, they usually mean Siddhartha Gautama, the Gautama Buddha, claimed to be the founder of Buddhism. He’s the one who was a prince but gave it up to go seek enlightenment, and is usually portrayed as slender and athletic. However, there were either six or 23 Buddhas before him and will be (/have been) at least one after him, depending on which sect of Buddhism you prefer, who look all kinds of ways, but mostly like humans. After that, it starts to get complex and I stop caring enough to follow the details.

Thank you for the clarification. I have family members who are into Buddhism, so I was familiar with Siddhartha Gautama but not with the other Buddhas, so I assumed that the fat laughing Buddha figure was supposed to be him. As Alan said, I sit cross legged corrected.

“That’s the reason he had so many followers,” speedtypingincel wrote. “BONES are the most important thing in the world.”

And yet, even the longest and handsomest bones that ever temporarily propped up a humanoid eventually end up in the dirt. Or a charnelhouse. Or scattered on a mountaintop by vultures. Or at the bottom of the sea with octopi crawling in and out the eyesockets. Or mashed into a powder following cremation.

Literally nobody is drooling over any Buddha’s bones. They’re all too busy trying to live by his teachings, which of course this self-absorbed bozocel can’t be arsed to even give a cursory glance to.

Sounds like a conspiracy to keep people docile and prevent violent uprisings. … Now I understand why the TaIiban destroyed that Buddha statue in Afghanistan, it was a reminder of a rich chad hypocrite who told people just to cope while both physical reality itself and society fucked them over and it was a massive stone heightmog as well.

Uh, pretty sure it was actually due to the Arabian mujahideen’s strict Wahhabi prohibition of idolatry. Which is actually alien to the region, even among its Muslims. (They had no problem tolerating the presence of those giant stone Buddha-Chads for centuries, after all.)

Sand prophets, messianic manlets, and ancient Greek high IQ posters will always be better than bootlicking buddhists.

Uhhhhh, pretty sure that any and all of the above would, if they saw this sulky screed, be sorely tempted to slap the shit out of this whiny wimp and tell him to get his head out of his ass.

Good thing they’re all dead, and thus spared the trouble.

I’ve decided to start using Chad myself when I talk about handsom tall guys just to piss incels off.

gigachad

This kind of hilariously overblown rhetoric is the reason I instantly thought of Incels the other day when I was randomly studying Wikipedia (as one does) on Lake Chad (after which the country of Chad is apparently named). I learned that:

1) Chad means “lake” in a local language.

2) During more humid prehistoric climate periods, there has been an extremely large (around million sq km) freshwater lake filling the Chad Depression, draining into the Niger river. Geologists refer to this as the Lake Megachad.

Gonna leave this hear for that. This is a source I used in my research project a week back or so. It read like a redit post, I actually had to check to make sure I wasn’t reading a redit post. This guy is actually upset at one point that a woman feels more then one emotion. That one day should could be happy and then sad the next day. You know like a person. Men still hate women in the exact same way, just more of the are literate now and have the internet to post their spew and can get called out on their bullshit instead of being written down as a great philosopher because their one of the few that know how to read and write.

Well, sure, BONES are a good thing. In fact, BONES are mandatory if you’re a human. If you’re a jellyfish or a butterfly, however, BONES would just get in the way. It’s clear — at least to me — that jellyfish and butterflies do not have BONES envy.

That said, are BONES the most important thing in the world for a human? I’d say it’s a tie between BONES and OXYGEN and WATER and —

Lots and lots of things.

Similarly, Lake Tahoe in the United States has a tautological name because Tahoe means “lake” in Washoe.

Thank you, I appreciate the encouragement and I’m learning more and more each day not to apologize. It’s usually pressure I get from guys I’m not interested in dating and who I think are my friend but really aren’t because of how they don’t respect my preferences. I’m a lot more comfortable with setting boundaries now though and once I do that I actually feel so much more empowered. I feel like sometimes it’s right that it’s about me, you know? I mean if I’m not attracted to a guy but we’re friends and hanging out after work and I’m still in whatever outfit I put together for that day (which is often because I love to hang out in it anyway if I’m not tired) it’s ok if he looks but if and when I tell him to stop or if he’s staring and I don’t like that I say so even if it’s not “nice” according to him. Sometimes also guy friends like that make assumptions because they know I’m involved in the fetish community where I live but I really make it clear my time there and enjoyment of that is only for guys I’m attracted to and any complaining otherwise is really offensive to me.

Let me guess: they complain about being “friendzoned.” If someone complains about being “friendzoned” when you make them your friend, they don’t deserve to be your friend. Good for you for setting boundaries and standing up for yourself.

So last holliday season I was at target looking for some gifts and cheap decorations for my apartment, when I stumble across a menorah made out of fake pine. It was a menorah that they had specifically made to look like branches of a Christmas tree. So I take a picture and I send it to my Jewish roommate because I thought it was hilarious and wanted to see how she would react, she send me back two messages. The first said “that is the Christian menorah I have ever seen in my life” and the second ” if you bring that into our home I’m going to put the star of David on all the Christmas stockings” She was great though

Another funny story from that same season is that me, her and other roommates were playing this time trivia game. And one of roommates got the challenge of naming three non Christian religious holidays. and she got all flustered and said “Yamaka”. I’m dying laughing, our Jewish roommate is just looking at her, and the third one goes “that’s a Jewish person Hat”
“I don’t know, I hate timed shit”
Jewish roommate ” do y’all just not know any other Jews! what is this shit”

I’m pretty sure she meant to say Hanukkah.

Yes, it’s the friendzone complaint bullshit. Most of my outfits are supposed to be eye-catching but dammit that’s not the same thing as a license to leer at me creepily. They should know the damn difference. Most of my outfits don’t have any skirt or pants or bottom other than like a leotard-cut bodysuit and tights and that’s part of the kind of signature look I worked on overall for my hostess job which to me is a joy also carried over into my BDSM/fetish social group (where they run things so that creeps aren’t allowed, *thank goddess*) So I was letting my supposed friend hang out with me and he can’t seem to understand that just because I dress this way that doesn’t mean he gets to leer and because I’m not attracted to him I get to decide that and say that and that is OK because it’s my choice he needs to be ok with it or go away. Instead he has been complaining that his “having” to see me dressed for work or hanging out I am being cruel to him. Ewww. Now it’s worse because he knows I’m more involved in the fetish community and it’s part of my life so if you were really my friend you would want to know what’s going on with me and be interested and care, you know? (Maybe TMI warning here) So he gets upset like when I talk about really tall attractive ripped guys in my group that I’m being set up with to have as slaves. But that’s a complicated relationship that takes planning and negotiating and a lot of real emotional investment that’s not like in gross porn like this jerk so-called friend probably watches. So of course I need to talk about it. So I’m at the point where I want to take their bullshit term “friendzone” and make it mine and just say “Yes. You are in the friendzone. That’s my rule and judgment and yes it’s because you are not up to my standards of physical attractivess.” Like not because I really wouldn’t want to be friends with anyone of any appearance if they were genuine but because in this case I feel like I want to give the jerk back what he’s giving me and kind of seems to want.

Sorry for rambling and sorry if TMI on the fetish stuff and maybe I should have waited for the open thread but I appreciate you all and this blog so much and how supportive everyone is.

I’ve never seen a Christmas tree menorah, but I have seen stockings with stars of David. I imagine these items are good for interfaith families.

she got all flustered and said “Yamaka”.

This reminds me of the Adam Sandler Chanukah song, which contains the line “put on your yarmulke, cause here comes Chanukah*.” I’ve never heard anyone name yarmulkes* as a holiday, but I’ve known a lot of people who think Chanukah is the most important Jewish holiday. It’s actually one of the least important, it’s just that a lot of people see the presents and 8 days and assume it’s important. Still, it’s a fun holiday and this year it overlaps with Christmas so I get some of the days off.

Happy holidays everyone! (cue triggered conservatives)

I’m so out of touch with Christmas that it took me a moment to understand what sort of stockings these are. Anyway, star of David Christmas stockings sound like an excellent way to continue the War on Christmas.

It’s general election day here. My constituency is normally a safe Labour seat, but it has a large Jewish population, and Labour’s anti-semitism problem will doubtless have an effect. When the three largest Jewish newspapers ran a joint editorial calling Labour an “existential threat to Jewish life in this country”, that has to have an impact.

I personally hate 2010s slang as a whole, but the more generic slang of the 2010s like “yeet” is at least more benign compared to what incels and the alt-right come up with.

Gamer slang isn’t as bad for me, but I find those who are interested in multiplayer online battle arenas (MOBAs) or many games with fantasy elements in them to be rather nerdy (i.e. subjecting oneself to being laughed at, mocked or regarded as the object of people’s frustrations regardless of political stance), and overall, I find many gamers to be unwoke and borderline alt-right.

I don’t live in the U.K. so my knowledge of your politics isn’t too deep, but if I lived there I’d sooner vote for Labor than any Conservative party. It seems to be the go to of conservative parties in multiple countries these days to accuse liberal parties of antisemitism while they themselves are actively courting Nazis. This is pretty clearly a way of distracting from their own antisemitism and talking about the splinter in their opponent’s eye while ignoring the plank in theirs. I don’t doubt that there is some antisemitism in Labor, but they’re not actively associating with white supremacists who want me dead.
