Breaking the Narrative Episode 100! Confusing Interest with Consent? Fuck My Life…Wait Don’t!

This week my loving wife decided to bring a study we seemed to have overlooked to my attention.  Now while it hasn’t really gained traction yet it seems that some people have already decided to talk about it this year. Now what does this study say for those who haven’t looked at the links?…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 97: The Source of the Problem – Telltale Origins of the Contemporary SJW.

One of the most persistent problems with political discourse this decade has been the advent of the Social Justice Warrior and their particular tactics; appeals to emotion, denial of reality and refusal to take any responsibility for their actions or attitudes.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 96: Fandom isn’t Toxic Trekspertise. Put Down the Kool-Aid.

This week I’m covering a request from a fan of my work here: A YouTube video by Trekspertise called “The Rise of Toxic Fandom: A Theory.” Since this is a rarity for my work I’m simply attaching the direct video link. I do have to request you not leave any comments on the video as due to the fact I don’t believe it will do any good, though it might help to have this article ready in case someone links to the video’s strawman of an argument when going forward.…

Breaking The Narrative Episode 95: A Journey of Vengeance? Reviewing Shenmue I+II

The year is 2000, I had been an owner of a Sega Dreamcast, playing Phantasy Star Online for months on effectively the first console I ever personally owned. It wouldn’t be much longer before I owned a Playstation 2. Shenmue had gotten released in the United States and I was enthralled.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 93: Boy’s Love or Simple Male Bonding? A Review of Banana Fish!

Breaking the Narrative Episode 89: Tennessee’s Opening of Pandora’s Gynocentric Box

It is no secret that we are often saddled even now with the issue and question of suffrage, also known as the Right to Vote in the United States.

Breaking the Narrative Episode 88: The Real Way AI is Going to Take Over The World! A Review of Beatless!

I’ve decided to cover this particular series because it’s gone particularly far for an anime in this day and age, and is still on going, surprisingly. This is unusual for a non-franchise anime in the current industry. The reason I’ve made this decision is not just because this ends up becoming Dave Cullen’s worst nightmares made manifest, but it touches upon the plight of the adolescent youth, including the path that many incels might end up falling into if not careful.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 87: Strike Hard, Strike First, Not Manly? A Review of YouTube’s Cobra Kai!

Before I begin I must apologize again for my absence. I’ve made nods to my poor relationship with my mother in the past. However she was still my mother, keyword there was. Alice Jean Sherer, the woman who bore me and had me circumcised, left this world at 7:21 PM CST on May 21, 2018.…
