Breaking the Narrative Episode 34: Again Anita? #NotAProblem!

Seeing as most people here are in the same circles its probably fair to say that you’ve heard about or seen Anita Sarkeesian’s latest video on ‘ethnic women.’ In the past, I’ve approached Sarkeesian’s arguments by either  showing how she is wrong or showing what she has missed.…

Identity politics, we’re already playing them. And we’re all fucking Nazis.

There is a growing notion that any person that reminds you of a particular attribute is engaging in the same type of behavior as social justice. That if a woman reminds you she’s a woman when she explains why she rejects feminism, or a gay man reminds you he’s gay when rejecting the insane LGBT lobby, or a black person reminding you they’re black when saying All Lives Matter is somehow playing the same game we criticize.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 33: Wibbly Wobbly Wordy Lordy Stuffs! Why Do These Labels Make No Sense?”

Due to the events that seem to keep popping up since the inauguration, hell, for the past 50+ years or so, I think that we need to talk about two very specific labels concerning politics: Liberal and Conservative.  You may be wondering, “What does this have to do with Men’s Rights or Vidya Alex?” For the latter it means very little, as video games are not something of a political issue in the strictest sense.…

The Wage Gap in Ireland

By Seán

The Subversive Gender-Neutrality of Dignity Culture

Introduction
Campbell and Manning’s (2014) paper “Microaggression and Moral Cultures” has been positively discussed in the anti-SJ sphere. The paper argues that intersectional social justice advocacy has created a “victimhood culture” distinct from either the “honor culture” or “dignity culture” of the past.…

The death of the ‘Women couldn’t vote’ manipulative narrative

I hear the narrative ‘women didn’t have the right to vote’ consistently used to as a weapon of entitlement and blame, a weapon that is is often aimed at men. This is also used here in America to shut down the voices of women who do not fall in line and agree that feminism is the way.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 32: To Vax or Not to Vax, Due your Diligence!

Well this is going to be off my beaten path by a long shot! Not only am I’m not going to approach this subject with my usual awkward attempts at humor but I’m going to actually get a little bit personal here. I’m talking childhood level personal.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 31: Big Plate, Small Plate, For Everyone a Breastplate!

Back once more into the fray of gaming! If its not already apparent we are jumping onto the armament argument. This has at least always been hinted at with many feminist arguments against primarily fantasy worlds in general. While this plays off as a defending vidya argument, it can be used on the whole for any situation of women and armor in fantasy works.…

Welcome once again. I figure I’ve been going to a lot of different things lately so for the day before my birthday of January 10th I think I want to get back to basics. So I’m thinking something simple, a top ten list, something that can also be used to shut down various feminist arguments to boot.…
