Salon: "The Plight of the Bitter Nerd" => What's wrong with Arthur Chu?
Okay, I had little knowledge of Arthur Chu besides one video appearance Roosh linked to. It was pertaining to Gamergate. I remember he almost immediately stuck in my mind as someone I wanted to punch. You know that visceral response.

I'm lucky I don't pay much attention to Twitter and such, because I put him out of my mind. Then I clicked on a Salon article:

http://web.archive.org/web/2015011302592..._feminism/

This was tweeted by Heartiste ("and then they came for the nerds"), and a few paragraphs in, the tone was grating on me more and more ... I scrolled to the bottom of the article to find the byline: Arthur Chu.

Here are some key paragraphs. I won't pretend this is a good summary of the article. Here's a synopsis: Arthur Chu says he was a nerd, too, and nerds hating women doesn't work, and all what the nerd is complaining about is baseless, and instead of hating, nerds should sympathize with women.

"It sounds corny to say it like that, but I don’t know how to say it and be believed. I know that because, having experienced this emotion from the inside for most of my life, I sure as hell resisted believing it when I heard people saying it.

[a whole slew of unreadable brainbarf later]

But meanwhile, women are getting stalked and raped and killed. That’s something that men are doing and that men can stop other men from doing.

And, with apologies to my fellow emotionally tortured guys, that really ought to be our priority."

Runsonmagic asked, at one point, what the underlying parallels were between SJWs and White Knights. This got me to thinking about it again.

What the hell is going on inside Arthur Chu's head that makes him like this? Is this some sort of mental autogynephilia?

Is it because he is so uncompetitive as a man that he attacks other men, even those admittedly near him at the bottom of the male hierarchy?

Does the omega male have to submissively align himself with the females?

I know the instinct to protect women. I know it well. Sympathizing with them is something different. There is something viscerally troubling about feminist men. They are traitorous. A guy that I see protecting a woman, that's trustworthy. A guy that runs around telling everyone else how they should sympathize with women: That's treacherous, that's a woman in a man's body, a wolf in sheep's clothing. I don't want him on my team, I don't trust him, I want him where he can't do harm to other men.

I'm curious if anyone has personal knowledge of what it feels like to be that way, or if they have any further insight ... there's something about it that really makes me mad, and I've learned the benefits of knowing your enemy.

RE: Salon: "The Plight of the Bitter Nerd" => What's wrong with Arthur Chu?
Any time you read an article from Arthur Chu always keep these Facebook posts that he made before he went "big" in mind:

[Image: chu.png]

The guy is flat out admitting that he does his utmost best to eliminate any sort of dissenting information in his mind that could possibly contradict his world view.

[Image: chu2.png]

I wonder what sort of potential mean Chu feels like it is kosher to use to advance his cause considering he thinks his cause is something that must be promoted at all costs?

Blast these screenshots to Chu on social media in response to any time he tries to make any sort of point. People need to know that what they are reading from him is not something that is the result of taking time to investigate all available of data and then rationally deriving what is most likely to be the correct view, but rather the result of a mind that has repeatedly self-purged itself in order to serve a cause more unquestionably and that he is dedicated to serving the cause in any way possible, even if it's potentially misleading or dishonest ("I am of the opinion that the ends do in fact justify the means...")

RE: Salon: "The Plight of the Bitter Nerd" => What's wrong with Arthur Chu?
This seems completely like typical omega behavior to me. Asian American, raised in toxic New York and California. Also a alumni of Swathmore, a private ultra-liberal university.

Asian American white knights are a SJWs perfect fantasy. They are not socially successful as a white American male, yet economically and academically on par. They hit that perfect sweet spot. But they are still a minority. The product is a hollow and desperate voodoo doll that has the financial and academic clout to support SJW agenda. Also, Asian mothers use guilt-tripping and other techniques to condition Asian males to depend on their validation. When Asian males are bombarded this at home, then liberals when they leave for university, the dependency is set in stone.

The video games streaming is just a medium. The omegas and wizards and joystick zombies aren't used to having female attention anyway. My gaming roommate could care less even if Anita Sarkeesian had three tits. But who's a gaming celebrity? The fellow herbivores streaming gameplay on Twitch and Youtube, who make millions. Millions of subscribers, while selling gaming headsets and mouses for affiliate marketing commission. These gaming celebrities are gods to gamers, while SJWs are goddesses to Arthur Chu. This is all traditional white knighting just through a more racial filter. He'd say anything to get his Wii rode. But we all know he's playing single-player mode with his joystick tonight. There is no protective instinct in play here. Protective instinct requires polarity, a high test. male sensing danger towards a feminine woman. Chu is what Krauser calls a punchable estrogen slug.

One thing I don't see mentioned, and I believe I have the right Asian Male SJW, is that he used to be a white supremacist.
He is not white. So why would he lavish another group with supremacy? Even HBD guys point out that E. Asians have higher IQs. That may be as a cover for them, but it may not. Point is, that it is an odd position even within the community that one would associate with that.
One can infer a lot about his competitiveness from that

I definitely think this is just an omega male complex

The real question isn't what's wrong with Arthur Chu, but what's wrong with society in which he can become a famous and rich person. I am firmly of the opinion that poison, no matter how vile, can't take hold if the soil is healthy.

He got his fame from Jeopardy. We know why he performs so well.

The civil war wasn't about the slaves, it was about economics (undercutting competing states by removing cheap labor) reconstruction (as above) and where the base of federal power was going to lie in the US.

You could take him seriously. You could try to make sense of all he's saying, undo the logical mistakes one by one and try to make him see where he is wrong and why he should change his views.

But look at him.

That's the face of someone who dislikes society, because he feels society wronged him. In a way, he's right. Nature fucked him over pretty bad.

Here's his interview on David Pakman's show where he becomes pretty unhinged and reveals the totalitarian nature of not only anti-GG but SJWs as a whole ("There is no other side! You shouldn't be giving them a voice!").

That's the face of a man who will not channel his fighting instinct for himself. He fights for others (women) because fighting for himself would be an admission that he is not perfect as is. That is the face of a man who needs to lift some weights, do some cardio, or do some yoga and start eating right because he clearly had the intellectual potential to do something with himself if he could master his body along with his brain. He's just another sad guy who will forever be unhappy because his God-given talent cannot grant him all the things he wants out of life and his narcissism will not allow him to develop any other part of himself.

His narcissism is common to men with a high aptitude for learning. They cannot accept that the body is the brain's vessel.

I read that article and I swear, behind every paragraph, I can hear the ticking of a time bomb.

I got much the same feeling from reading Hugo Schwyzer's later articles, and we all remember where that led.

It amazes me that in our culture people with so little life experience and human interaction feel the need to give social commentary. It's obvious that Chu lives in a bubble. Those facebook posts of his are scary and probably the norm for how most SJW cultural marxists think and act. He is a vile piece of shit

RE: Salon: "The Plight of the Bitter Nerd" => What's wrong with Arthur Chu?
I know he did voicework for the webcomic http://www.erfworld.com for a while, trying to establish himself. Then the Jeopardy money came in and he ran for the hills.

The shitty glasses, the crappy comb-forward, being overweight from a shitty diet, dressing badly, bad body language and kino, awkward physical movement... Man, there's so much easy self-improvement he could do that would make him a better man. But his otaku personality keeps holding him back.

So here's my challenge to Arthur Chu: Show us much better your techniques are. Get a girlfriend. Show her off to the internet. Show us how well your SJW approved courting methods pay off. Make us look like fools because we're not having "ask for access at every escalation" foreplay the way you promote.

Cause right now, you're a big zero in the women department, and your advice is not only bad, it's anti-advice. It's so anti what works, it's toxic.

Put up, or shut up. Stop telling others how to bat when you can't even connect with the ball yourself. You try to talk from experience. But you have none.

The only advice Arthur Chu can offer today is how to fail with women.

"Alpha children wear grey. They work much harder than we do, because they're so frightfully clever. I'm awfully glad I'm a Beta, because I don't work so hard. And then we are much better than the Gammas and Deltas. Gammas are stupid. They all wear green, and Delta children wear khaki. Oh no, I don't want to play with Delta children. And Epsilons are still worse. They're too stupid to be able to read or write. Besides they wear black, which is such a beastly color. I'm so glad I'm a Beta."

RE: Salon: "The Plight of the Bitter Nerd" => What's wrong with Arthur Chu?
Considering the tortured mental gymnastics he has to perform to even support the SJW nonsense, I predict he'll have a mental breakdown and harm himself or hit rock bottom and actually have a "come-to-Jesus" moment. Call me naive if you like, but the potential for Arthur Chu doing a complete 180 on his views is there. It's obvious to me that he really wants to believe all this shit because it's what he's known all his life, yet deep down he can't accept it entirely. His occasional moment of brutal, cringeworthy honesty is proof of this. It is a subconscious cry for help. In him there is a man struggling to be free of all the lies and ideological baggage. It's just a matter of if he'll eventually embrace that person or kill him and self-destruct.

There is an annoying persistent ember of doubt in his mind that he tries to suppress with strange self-flagellating exercises.

Arthur, give it up. There's still time to change your mind, but life is short. Abusing yourself to appease these sociopaths who don't give two shits about you is no way to live. They will never fuck you, they will never love you, they will only use you. They revel in your pain. They accept you for now only because you're useful to them, but they will stab you in the back in a heartbeat.

It's time to stop torturing yourself and simply be the man you want to be.

He's like a less masculine version of Long Duk Long from Sixteen Candles.

At least Duk got a hug-close.

Salon’s Uncle Tim: The “Mind Reader” of Nerds

http://pjmedia.com/drhelen/2015/01/12/sa...-of-nerds/

Quote:Calling men’s feelings and experiences internal and women’s external is a way of belittling men’s experiences in order for Chu to deal with his own internal demons. Why he needs to do this is only a question that he can answer, but to accuse men like Aaronson who have real concerns of having brought it on themselves sounds much like the way women were blamed in the past for wearing “those provocative clothes.” It’s an excuse that doesn’t make the one doing the excusing look very credible.
