RE: Wikipedia just published its article on the manosphere
To play referee, I think Mike's point is valid that if you actually lived through it firsthand, observed it, and were one of the writers considered to be part of the Manosphere, then that does give you more expertise.

However, the point in dispute is whether Tuth was a direct observer of the birth and growth of the Manosphere, which I don't doubt based on Tuth's comments. If we take him at his word, he was at least somewhat present during the formative times in question.

Tuth, I think the distinction we are at odds about, is not just the "influences" of the Manosphere in a literary sense-- which could include works back 5,000 years to the Kama Sutra-- but the backbone of its ACTUAL foundation and membership. We can trace back the literary lineage as recent and as ancient as we want, from Mystery and Tony's Lay Guide back, but we need to look at who is actually IN the Manosphere and work from there.
