men who should not ever be with women ever MGTOW misogyny simps slut shaming vaginas

In the midst of a global pandemic, MGTOWs are yelling about women with nose rings

By David Futrelle

It’s nice to know that, even in the throes of a massive global pandemic that could leave tens of millions dead, Reddit’s MGTOWs can still manage to find time to indulge in one of their favorite hobbies: yelling about women with body piercings they don’t like.

Today’s target: Nose rings and the women who wear them. And the men who date them.

Someone called throwaway4738299 started things off with a post on the Men Going Their Own Way subreddit complaining about an acquaintance who wasn’t happy to hear criticism of his nose-ringed crush.

“It’s so weird watching men literally get angry about you criticizing women,” he wrote.

I told some guy to not date the girl he was talking to because she had a nose ring. You know, because those women are fucking crazy. He started getting defensive and would say shit like, “why should I take advice from you” or “that’s stupid” or “where are your facts” etc. There are more passive aggressive comments that are made, I just can’t remember. They need to wake up and realize the pattern of women like that being low quality partners.

Other commenters had throwaway’s back on the nose ring thing.

“[W]ell you’re not wrong at all,” wrote Edtotem.

the nose ring is a NO NO every goddamned time, it is practically verified via scientific method. i wish i were joking honestly

Someone called Rex-Holes had a somewhat more elaborate theory of nose-ringed women.

Most men don’t want woman with facial piercings. That’s pretty standard. So if men dont find them attractive, why do females get them? It’s a social display of wealth and openness to non social norms. IE “I (my man) can afford a frivolous body decoration and I also have low impulse control which means I’m a slut and i make terrible personal choices”. This is why chicks with poor impulse control always have random little tats everywhere and obscure piercings and dreadlocks. If you see any of those signs, run.

It’s a safe bet that precisely none of these women are going to be displeased to have MGTOWs running from them.

Other commenters saved their venom for male “simps” who allegedly “worship pussy.”

DangZagnut (we’ve met him before) offered a rather graphic take on the subject.

Millenials are the most pathetic white knights, but they were raised in a steady bath of pussy and government worshipping propaganda.

So it’s not their fault they worship pussy, what else are they going to do? Millenials love showing their noses deep into a used pussy, and love licking the chunks out.

MGTOWs certainly have vivid imaginations, don’t they?

I don’t have a nose ring myself, but I dated a woman who had one. She was a good person whom the MGTOWs would have hated for other reasons as well.

He started getting defensive and would say shit like, “why should I take advice from you” or “that’s stupid” or “where are your facts” etc.

You know, I think feel like this guy made the right choice in ignoring the MGTOW advice. Those are all fine responses to an MGTOW.

they were raised in a steady bath of pussy

I feel like this guy is watching too much porn.

government worshipping propaganda

Speak for yourself, but millennials are less likely to be a part of the Trump cult than older generations.

I save my poor impulse control for screaming and running from MGTOWs and their ilk. And chocolate. I have terrible impulse control when it comes to chocolate. When I read this sort of thing I wish I could get blue hair and tatts. My workplace dress code forbids. It would be a solid reason in the plus column for leaving my job. And the fact it’s a red flag to MGTOWs only enhances the appeal.

And… Off topic I hope my American fellows on WHTM all live in states with sensible leadership. What I’m reading from US does not get better day by day that’s for sure.

Not too long ago I was interested in another woman and this woman had some interesting thoughts on piercings. I suppose a negative view on piercings doesn’t necessarily come from misogyny in this case, but this article did remind me of it. I once expressed my desire to get a belly piercing which, as a long-torso-ed woman I think would work well. Her response was it reminded her of ‘women who smell like shit and never bathe and are sluts,’ paraphrasing.

I chalked this up to transference, or the psychological tendency for people to attribute negative emotions to habits or things that are usually neutral but are at least tangentially associated with a negative experience. So, after understanding where she came from, I didn’t have much else to say to this person but it wasn’t bitter. Just awkward.

These MGTOWs on the other hand? This isn’t transference because I sincerely doubt they’ve had the experience of actually getting to know a woman with a nose ring, let alone another assortment of piercings. It’s pretty plain that this is a narrative conjured up in their minds; the slutty, tattooed, pierced woman who talks back to men, gasp! I mean, I don’t have any piercings or tattoos at this present time and I’m not afraid to talk back to men. What does that make me?

I haven’t posted here in weeks. I’ve been looking to work in healthcare and seemingly struggling to actually land a job offer. I have great interviews, though! Otherwise, I’m keeping safe, even staying away from my parents which may or may not be a good thing. If I do get a job, I’ll have plenty of opportunities to be in the thick of it.

I’ve been putting off getting a nose stud until I know if the industrial heals properly, but now I’m thinking maybe don’t wait. I thought being 38 and fat was probably enough to keep these guys away, but there’s no harm in hedging your bets.

You know, because if you can’t get a date, you don’t want anyone else to get a date.

Most men don’t want woman with facial piercings. That’s pretty standard. So if men dont find them attractive, why do females get them? It’s a social display of wealth and openness to non social norms. IE “I (my man) can afford a frivolous body decoration and I also have low impulse control which means I’m a slut and i make terrible personal choices”.

Hold on there. A guy who doesn’t like facial piercings is paying for his girlfriend to get facial piercings?

It sounds like he’s the one with low impulse control when it comes to money. Also, sadly, he makes terrible personal choices with his money.

Oh, I forgot. He’s enthralled and bewitched. He can’t help himself. No wonder you MGTOWs have to go your own way.

But wait. You never do. I’ve said it before and I’m very, very likely to say it again: I want to hear about all your cool hobbies, the ones you promised to talk about. And no, following behind women, stepping on our heels and screaming at us, is not a cool hobby. So far, it’s the only hobby — and in some extreme cases, the only career — you MGTOWs seem to have.

It’s not just Millenials who have piercings Miggies wouldn’t like. A former lover of fond memory in the early 90’s (a fellow boomer, and if anyone picks up on my previous comments about my social awkwardness, it didn’t stop me having my moments) had piercings in the navel and one eyebrow, several tattoos,and experimented with nipple and clitoral piercings, though the last two didn’t go as well as she’d hoped, one leading to a nipple infection (ouch) and she described the pain of the latter’s application to that of giving birth (Kevin crosses legs.)

At around this time my then 90-year-old grandmother opted to have her ears pierced for the first time in her life.

Why do these bozos assume everything (especially what they don’t like) started with the rise of the Interwebz?

Can I just point out that the OP said that his interaction was with “some guy”? Not “a friend”, or “a coworker”, or anything like that, but just “some guy”? Do you think that he might have actually just started ranting to a stranger about the whole women with nose-rings thing, or is that just poor phrasing?

Because if it really was just a stranger, I consider his reaction to a random guy going “that girl you were just talking to had a nose-ring so you shouldn’t date her” to be incredibly restraimed. Just a “where are your facts?” instead of “buzz off, you weird unpleasant person” (possibly with various added swearing)? That’s almost impressive.

I mean, it’s important that people don’t let themselves be consumed with an obsession with the coronavirus, that they have things going on outside of fearing sickness…

…But could they pick something a little less lame to focus on? (And less misogynistic, preferably, but with this bunch, that’s probably impossible…)

I know complaining about nose rings is a very specific issue (what about other nose piercings, are they called studs or something?), but every time MGTOWs or such complain about body modifications (on women), I can’t help but wonder if they realise how little time earrings have been mainstream. Should women not have earrings? Do they not understand that these things vary from time to time and things that used to be strange can become generally accepted? Of course they don’t.

It’s also kind of funny that apparently women are just cattle with no distinctive personalities, and men are the actual humans with actual inner lives, yet all men everywhere apparently should have the same preferences when it comes to facial piercings.

You’ll know when you get activated. Which, for the manosphere, will be at the moment when you express some independent thoughts they oppose to. Because that would go against women’s nature, so clearly someone would have brainwashed you into it.

I’m still waiting to meet the people who brainwashed me to be the person I am today. Might like to thank them.

So feminism has been canceled due to COVID-19, but MGTOWs are still allowed to continue making petty complaints about other peoples’ fashion choices. Okay.

it is practically verified via scientific method

He’s right. This is backed up by numerous peer-reviewed studies in the Journal of Goddam Nose Ring NO NOs. (tagline: “It’s science, so shut up!”)

It’s so weird watching men literally get angry about you criticizing women

So weird how total strangers don’t like you butting in on their conversations and telling them what to find attractive.

It’s just baffling how people get defensive when you go on angry rants.

Why don’t random men enjoy being evangelized concerning your hateful views on women?

There must be something wrong with other men, not with your opinions.

So if men dont find them attractive, why do females get them?

“I (my man) can afford a frivolous body decoration and I also have low impulse control which means I’m a slut and i make terrible personal choices”

Yeah, you’ll really need to break the piggy bank for these frivolous body decorations. It’s been about three years, so I can’t remember exactly, but I think I paid about $60 for my nostril piercing and first piece of jewellery. Oops, I mean ~~my man~~ paid about $60 for my nostril piercing and first piece of jewellery, in order to demonstrate my sluttiness and terrible decision-making.

The most expensive piece of frivolous body-decorating jewellery I own sits on my left ring finger, and ~~~my man~~~ actually did buy that one. Logically, that must be the ultimate symbol of my sluttitude, right? That’s just MGTOW math. MathGTOW.

Unrelated but I lost my everyday stud down the sink last week D: I am lucky enough to also own a larger one that I’ve been wearing, but it’s not as comfortable to sleep in. There’s no point to this story except that I’m bummed.

Just gonna say it, my husband loves my tattoos. When we first started dating that was kind of the lusty appeal was imagine if there was any more tattoos that he couldn’t see being covered by my clothes. I love his tattoos as well. I just find tattoos attractive because there is something kind of hot about going through pain to get something meaningful to you put on your body.

I always picture dudes like this as really old man confused about why facebook is not called my space and asking what a Minecraft is. Don’t they just sound like some old pilgrim puritan who would cry witch and harlot if they saw an exposed ankle?

I think a lot of MGTOWs are incels that got older and dialed back the self-hatred but kept the misogyny full-blast. Now instead of complaining about how women won’t sleep with them, they instead go down the sour grapes path and start blathering about how they never wanted women anyway. They may be older, but they reason very immaturely.
Anyway, I like Minecraft so I would be just fine with MGTOWs and their ilk staying away from it. I hadn’t played in a while but last night I played some to waste time, and that was fun.

I was just saying they sound like old men so out of touch they can’t figure out why young women are doing things that aren’t attractive to the old men and they can’t figure out even more why the young men are still finding the young women attractive.

They also don’t understand other people being attracted to different things then they are and it’s really funny. Like one of these guys could be like “blonde women are the only attractive women out there” and some other guy can be like “well I find red hair extremely beautiful” and then the mgtow way would just tell the guy who likes red hair that he’s wrong and brainwashed, obviously the blonde hair is better.

Anyone who thinks tattoos are just an impulse – I knew I wanted one (at least) as a teenager, I knew I wanted to design it myself, and it took me until I was 34 to get the design I wanted on my body. I love my choice and every time I look at it now I’m reminded of the work I’ve put into myself and where I’ve been and how far I’ve come.

Just you guys wait, as soon as one of them gets infected with covid19, Then they’ll rant about nothing else but their suffering and how much worse they have it versus everyone else. They demonize empathy and positive male actions and positive male/female relationships (insults like white knighting, wimps etc) then expect said empathy to be returned to them.

This is extremely common among straight male misogynists in general. I find it infuriating. It’s also often paired with thinking that everything women do is intended to entice men (or at least should be), so you get:

1) I don’t find facial piercings attractive.
2) No man finds facial piercings attractive.
3) Women should not have facial piercings because they are not attractive to men.

And then they’ll deny ever having said otherwise. (“We have always been at war with COVID-19”). I’m guessing eventually they’ll start passing around a theory that COVID-19 was created by feminists (which they will try to cite that men seem to die more often, or they’ll find some TERFs gloating about it and assume that’s the feminist view).

@Fabe, there was a Minecraft server at mc.sitosis.com (vanilla Minecraft), which a few years ago had an influx of players from Pharyngula after PZ out out a recruiting call. I’ve just taken a look, and it appears to still exist, though the forums are quiet. In the time I was there, it was a good community: friendly, inclusive, didn’t tolerate bad behaviour. If anyone from WHTM is looking for a server, it might be worth checking whether Sitosis are still accepting new users.

The idea that all men are attracted to exactly the same traits is key to the “HB Scale” that manospherians obsess about. There’s apparently a Platonic Ideal of Attractiveness, and the close you are to it the closer you are to a 10. Like oh, your skin is 0.4 points away from The Form of Skin Tone, and your eye shape is 0.3 points away from The Form of Eye Shape.

If the idea of different people finding different traits attractive is impossible to them, imagine how they would react to learning that most individuals can find different, mutually-exclusive traits attractive?

That also explains their inability to comprehend gay and bisexual people. They can’t understand gay men because they can’t imagine a man finding other men attractive, they can’t understand lesbians because they can’t imagine a woman not being attracted to alpha++ men such as themselves, and they can’t understand bi people because they can’t understand liking people of different genders all at once.

It’s always baffled me just from a math standpoint why some men want their own sexual preferences universalized so badly. It’s a pretty tiny percentage of the female population that is straight, cis, white, young, thin, has long undyed hair, no tattoos or piercing, is beautiful without makeup, is anti-feminist and is a virgin but willing to supply the right misogynist with unlimited pornographic sex. If literally every man has the same taste, these dudes won’t have much of a chance.

For a group of men who all claim to have a degree in pussyconomics, they sure don’t seem to understand basic supply and demand rules very well.

I suppose in reality, they’re just more interested in complaining about women not living up to their standards then they are in finding a partner who lives up to their standards.

It ties right into their theory that the majority of men are competing for a tiny fraction of women. They claim that the top 20% of men get 80% of the women, leaving the other 20% for 80% of men. This obviously is BS, but I can see how they’d derive their other theory from this one.

Or it could just be that they project themselves onto everyone else because they don’t have the brainpower to conceive otherwise.

epitome of incomprehensibility

Millenials are the most pathetic white knights, but they were raised in a steady bath of pussy and government worshipping propaganda.

That doesn’t sound comfortable. I’d prefer water and soap. 🙂

@Alan
Thanks for your question, that’s a thing that has been bugging me for some time now…you see, as a transfemme I get to live by and get judged by both qually pointless rules for gender.

So, when I was a little kid I wanted an earing because my sister got one. It was a great experience (it hurt like hell but for a young martial artist ,who would grow up into a kinky girl, who still likes martial arts, that’s a feature not a bug) but appearantly I choose poorly. Unbeknownst to me, there was a rule in place that said you can’t wear an earing to the right as a camab (i.e male..it was a silly time back then) person because that was gay. My uncle put it like that: Links cool, rechts schwul. (left is cool, right is gay). I understood today that this might also have..uh..political implications and that he might have been worried about me becoming either right-wing or gay or both..

Luckily he was wrong on both counts and even though there is absolutely nothing wrong with being gay (being right-wing would be wrong but people make mistakes that they can learn from), it’s not quite for me as it requires a gender I can…even when I really try my hardest and take a lot of meds not quite live with in a way that would make me happy. Testosterone sure is a hell of a drug that I can only tolerate in moderation, I can’t deal with the constant input of it that nice males can deal with. It’s not poison to me as some radicalized trans girls put it (unintentionally hurting trans masc people and a lot of other friendlies in the progress) but rather..tooo hot if that makes sense? Like nicotine, caffeine, ephedrine, ampetamienes and other stimulants (yes I am a bit of a lab cat and got / get most of that stuff legally). Testo and especially it’s derivative DHT seem like way too strong stims for my taste. But if other people like or even require testo or DHT and manage to be nice people, more power to them.

So now that I am old enough to put out topless pictures of myself on twitter to rehumanize trans femmes (check out my feed, I’m @ chaossprite over there) and have to worry abouth protecting young kids from seeing them and my other content or risk getting in trouble, the rules have changed hard and I can wear earings on either ear (If I accept this kind of body modification) and in a lot of designs but am probably a slut for enjoying the pain they sometimes bring. Also, it’s bad form to have infectious material in your ears and would be horrible if I dirtied my hands playing with them during the pandemic, also my boyfriend is neutral to against them…soo…no earrings for me.

You seem to write a lot, I like your perspective so far and I value your opinion and candor. So…care to comment? Was any of that helpfull for you wearing earings?

I find the side nostril piercing attractive (traditinal Hindu style), but every time I see a nose ring I just can’t help thinking that it would be too painful if you caught it on something or banged it (not to mention it seems to be very exposed if you ever got in a fight, but maybe that’s just the people I hung out with when I was younger. )
I’m probably just too old to appreciate a new style, so to anyone who has one, or knows anyone who has one, do they cause any of that feeling?

They are made from what used to be precious metals. Nowadays they are also available in cheap and in costing as much as a product with medical implications should. Some of them are … very cheap and of course you can buy a lot of quality to show off your riches if you are into that. Most piercings however are counter culture and most solid-gold-piece-for-10k-and-up earings are probably not worn by marginalized punk grrrls odr guys on the streets because that would be rather risky and mostly unwise.

Lisa, just a bit of perspective on that from a cis male POV. I had a piercing in my left ear for that reason back in 1973. I think it mostly went away after Boy George in the early 80s, when it became acceptable for men to have two or more piercings.

Might be a good guide. I don’t have a nose piercing but there’s enough medical sound data on this. The thing I would be worried about is infection, because that hurts like hell and is very unhealthy. Once you have a piercing, you gotta take care of it and if you fail to do so, you will hurt yourself. Also if something becomes entangled there, you will hurt yourself. I know that you probably thought about all of this, so I’m just trying to do my due dilligence because I like that and for the rest of the readers.

The thing is that I have talked to a lot of people who regretted piercings, especially in times of viruses going around and them being more vulnerable thanks to torn and swollen tissue near the nose which has the important biological function to filter the air we breathe.

If you contact me on twitter (I’m chaossprite there) I can give you better quality info if you’d like.

So with all this said..I guess that people who know how to wear rings like that and stay healthy really know what they are doing.

and they can’t understand bi people because they can’t understand liking people of different genders all at once.

One of the best things I’ve ever read on the Internet was written by a man who just could not understand bisexuals. “How can you be in a relationship with a man or a woman”, he asked, “when you’re attracted to men and women on alternate days? How does that work?”

I still remember this because as far as I can remember, this was the first time I encountered a person who did not know how something works and (apparently) just came up with a theory by themselves, for some reason decided it was the truth without checking in with anyone else and only asked others to contribute when they hit a wall.

I’d suggest that such things should be designed so that the fastener will come undone at a level of shear stress or other physical forces short of the level needed to start tearing flesh or otherwise doing damage to the wearer. Then the worst case if it catches on something is that it gets lost, rather than that you get maimed or even stuck to something. Most usually you’d just retrieve it, refasten it, and go on about your business though.

That being said, I’d think the commonplace earring would be a bigger risk in that regard than a nose ring. It’s common to brush past things when in tight quarters for whatever reason, but not that common to stick your nose right into somewhere where it could get snagged on something.

I don’t know much about piercings and their dangers from a personal perspective. All I know is that I was riveted by my eighth-grade gym teacher’s warning: “Girls! Take your pierced earrings out before you play basketball! Those hoops could get caught on something!”
