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.

Looks like in Arronson's case, after the blowback he received for his Comment #171 post (where he basically admits he was an incel), he's decided to flagellate before his feminist masters in a sniveling post where he lays down his "core beliefs":

Quote:1. I believe that women are authors of their own stories, that they don’t exist merely to please men, that they are not homogeneous, that they’re not slot machines that ‘pay out’ but only if you say the right things. I don’t want my two-year-old daughter to grow up to be anyone else’s property, and I’m happy that she won’t. And I’d hope all this would no more need to be said, than (say) that Gentiles shouldn’t be slaughtered to use their blood in making matzo.

2. I believe everyone’s story should be listened to—and concretely, that everyone should feel 300% welcome to participate in my comments section. I don’t promise to agree with you, but I promise to try to engage your ideas thoughtfully, whether you’re a man, woman, child, AI-bot, or unusually-bright keyboard-pecking chicken. Indeed, I spend a nontrivial fraction of my life doing exactly that (well, not so much with chickens).

3. I believe no one has the right to anyone else’s sexual affections. I believe establishing this principle was one of the triumphs of modern civilization.

4. I believe women who go into male-dominated fields like math, CS, and physics deserve praise, encouragement, and support. But that’s putting the point too tepidly: if I get to pick 100 people (unrelated to me) to put onto a spaceship as the earth is being destroyed, I start thinking immediately about six or seven of my female colleagues in complexity and quantum computing. And no, Twitter: not because being female, they could help repopulate the species. Just because they’re great people.

5. I believe there still exist men who think women are inferior, that they have no business in science, that they’re good only for sandwich-making and sex. Though I don’t consider it legally practicable, as a moral matter I’d be fine if every such man were thrown in prison for life.

6. I believe that even if they don’t hold views anything like the above (as, overwhelmingly, they don’t), there might be nerdy males who unintentionally behave in ways that tend to drive some women away from science. I believe this is a complicated problem best approached with charity: we want win-win solutions, where no one is made to feel despised because of who they are. Toward that end, I believe open, honest communication (as I’ve been trying to foster on this blog) is essential.

7. I believe that no one should be ashamed of inborn sexual desires: not straight men, not straight women, not gays, not lesbians, not even pedophiles (though in the last case, there might really be no moral solution other than a lifetime of unfulfilled longing). Indeed, I’ve always felt a special kinship with gays and lesbians, precisely because the sense of having to hide from the world, of being hissed at for a sexual makeup that you never chose, is one that I can relate to on a visceral level. This is one reason why I’ve staunchly supported gay marriage since adolescence, when it was still radical. It’s also why the tragedy of Alan Turing, of his court-ordered chemical castration and subsequent suicide, was one of the formative influences of my life.

8. I believe that “the problem of the nerdy heterosexual male” is surely one of the worst social problems today that you can’t even acknowledge as being a problem—the more so, if you weight the problems by how likely academics like me are to know the sufferers and to feel a personal stake in helping them. How to help all the young male nerds I meet who suffer from this problem, in a way that passes feminist muster, and that triggers the world’s sympathy rather than outrage, is a problem that interests me as much as P vs. NP, and that right now seems about equally hard.

9. I believe that, just as there are shy, nerdy men, there are also shy, nerdy women, who likewise suffer from feeling unwanted, sexually invisible, or ashamed to express their desires. On top of that, these women also have additional difficulties that come with being women!

"I believe", "I believe", "I believe",... Maybe feminists can come up with some sort of Feminist-Nicene Creed for guys like this to repeat in front of the mirror every morning to profess their faith in the church of feminism and ask for atonement for their original sin of maleness.

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

Wait, I thought he was nobody. He's rich?

And many things on his list of beliefs (if he lives up to them) I happily agree with, but I guess this just serves to show the gulf between action and word

Oy vey. He's Jewish, too.

God, the utter and complete debasement of this poor man's self-worth. It just makes me want to cry.

The lashing he has received should remind us all of the utter contempt women have for weak men. Their natural response when they encounter a weak man is to demolish - to degrade and destroy, heh. It's like a pecking party. You display weakness to females, and they attack unmercifully.

My new tag line when I encounter an annoying woman: "Fat ugly slut!" Really, you don't have to remember anything more than those three words. It's like a dagger to their heart, and they respect the strength.

The only males that feminists seem to hate more than frat "dude bros" are male feminists. Feminists treat the latter the way regular women treat beta orbiters - attention giving dispensers to be kept at arm's length. Their adoration and ass kissing is appreciated - their company and social acquaintance is not. Actually another analogy that well illustrates the relationship between feminists and male feminists would be that of a stripper and a strip club patron. I'm sure strippers love the money that their customers has and feminist love it when white knights go out to slay the dudebro dragon - doesn't mean they would ever want to be alone with them in a social situation.

Ah, but here's the rub: Every woman, regardless of how skinny, beautiful, or pure she thinks she is, fears otherwise.

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

There's a big difference between Chu and Schwyzer. Schwyzer firstly was good looking (thick-rimmed hipster glasses aside). Arthur Chu is not. A good looking feminist already raises red flags, and lo and behold Schwyzer was basically just a savvy fucker amassing a harem and using social justice status whoring to do so. Hats off to him. Game recognized as he is thus far the only guy I can think of that the strategy actually worked.

Chu is most emphatically not that. He is about as low on the sexual hierarchy as it gets - Asian, overweight, terrible hair, terrible glasses, and most decidedly unsavvy. He is not getting any.

He needs to go the white knighting route because attacking the worth of other men is his only strategy. But the white knighting strategy never works because it puts you in a subservient position and women are simply not attracted to men of lower status than themselves. The only way to overcome that is to have excellent looks and we of course know that Chu does not have that.

So he is in a double bind. He looks like shit, and he willingly lowers his own status meaning he can't use a combination of game and status to compensate. He's about as omega as it gets. Agreed with Handsome Creepy Eel. How this thing can get to the level where he's at and thinks himself entitled to talk down to people that actually do some good in the world is a sign of a deep sickness.

Please elaborate on this.

Most men make the mistake of arguing rationally with women. I've found that the opposite is effective: If a woman accuses you of being a rape apologist, the absolute worst thing you can say is, "No, I'm not, I respect all women!" Instead, agree and amplify. "Yeah, I fucking love rape. It's so much fun to feel a hot bitch struggling while I fuck her hard." They're all bark and no bite. No woman will continue to call you a rape apologist when you've bragged about being a rapist. They stop in their tracks.

When a girl says something like, "Tiny dick!" you can argue with her, saying how your dick isn't tiny. Instead, "If you weren't such a fat ugly slut, you could find out." Or, much more succinct: "fat ugly slut". No caps, no punctuation. Just the three words that cut right to the heart of her attractiveness for the most viscerally important thing in her life: pair bonding.

They're like children. You don't reason with them; you just overwhelm them. Be forceful. They recognize and appreciate the strength. Roissy shut down a female commenter with three letters, not even a word: WNB. Mike Cernovich gets this, too: Be strong. If you appease, they smell the fear.

This is part of what's wrong with Arthur Chu: He talks too damn much. It's what we men do when we talk to other men; we go through details, and explore reasoning. Women need simple answers. I recall a panel of traders (hedge fund type guys) at UVa answered the question, why don't more women do this? The guy, being inquisitive, gregarious, and naive, explored the topic, wondering about women's willingness to be aggressive, to work long hours, and so forth. Obviously reasonable stuff, followed by an unsurprisingly unreasonable shitstorm. How dare you blah blah blah! He should have just answered, "I can't speculate on that because I'm not a woman."

Simple answers for simple minds.

I skimmed the followup to Schwyzer on Wikipedia. He's been a bad, bad boy. I really wonder if Arthur Chu is fooling us all and details will emerge of his utter nastiness. Then he'll shave his head, go neo nazi, and he'll be swimming in poosy.

RE: Salon: "The Plight of the Bitter Nerd" => What's wrong with Arthur Chu?
To set the record straight:

Arthur Chu married his college girlfriend, Eliza Blair. He is 31 years old and they still have no children, and possibly, no sex.

[Image: eliza_and_me_in_nature_6b8f2665f66cecdd0...8fa03e.jpg]

He won $298,200 on the game show Jeopardy after preparing over a month for his appearance. He then won an additional $100,000 by taking second place in the 2014 Tournament of Champions on the same show.

His parents were told to raise him carefully because he could grow up to be a genius who would change the world—or be a serial killer. That must have been a fun childhood.

He works a self-admittedly low paying mundane job as an insurance analyst in Cleveland, Ohio that gives him free time to yell at the internet.

"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."

Damn, that just makes my chest hurt. Not only are they both utterly cringe-worthy, the body language of each is sad. EVERY picture I've taken with a girl, at least in the last decade, has had her pressed up against me ... she's leaning in, close up, wants to be included ... these two look like buddies or something less ... if she were utterly horny for him, she would want each and every picture to show it.

Well, maybe she cleans up real nice or something. They were, after all, in Yosemite, right? Isn't that Half Dome in the background? But still, they put the picture on the internet.

Damn. That hurts.

The wife he's with is pretty attractive looking. I'd say she's a 5-6 in my book. But Chu is still giving off a virgin vibe to me.

RE: Salon: "The Plight of the Bitter Nerd" => What's wrong with Arthur Chu?
So brutal. You take one glance at him and his very physical being screams "I play Star Craft competitively." Confirmation of every Asian American stereotype. Were I an American girl above a 6, the price of fucking him in exchange for his money would be too high. Even as a golddigger I couldn't do it.

Right away I knew the best case scenario for him was that he was like that Indian fag, Anil Dash, or Hugo Schwyzer. A feminist lapdog that grovels and shits at their word for amusement. But he's not even Dash or Schwyzer.

I'd rather he be selling out his gender for profit rather than real idealism. Get something out of this. . But he's made himself believe this, judging by the quotations. He's backed himself into a corner because he's built his life around being a feminist drone.

He's incorporated every tenuous little scrap of social acceptance into his being. His university. Whatever clan in World of Warcraft or gaming league in Starcraft he played in. The one picture of this guy out in the wilderness and he's got a Swarthmore sweater on.

And he's sold his pride so cheap. What did feminism give him except two decades of being an incel, only to be broken by that horrific female Gollum he can't even get it up for and a couple meaningless likes here and there on Facebook? Nothing. Not even the respect of his masters. He's decided - consciously - that "I exist to do everything in my power to confirm the worldview of these women." Everything he says or does he has to do he has to watch, because the moment he slips, he gets attacked, then feels obligated to write a TLDR sniveling apology. He's addicted to that acceptance. He feels the sting whenever they attack him, which is why he self-flagellates and writes this schlock to win back their favor.

Quote:1. I believe that women are authors of their own stories, that they don’t exist merely to please men, that they are not homogeneous, that they’re not slot machines that ‘pay out’ but only if you say the right things. I don’t want my two-year-old daughter to grow up to be anyone else’s property, and I’m happy that she won’t. And I’d hope all this would no more need to be said, than (say) that Gentiles shouldn’t be slaughtered to use their blood in making matzo.

2. I believe everyone’s story should be listened to—and concretely, that everyone should feel 300% welcome to participate in my comments section.

Indeed, I spend a nontrivial fraction of my life doing exactly that (well, not so much with chickens).

...

That is a man suffering from withdrawal from the lamest drug there is - the validation of feminists. :/

I am glad he has his huge winnings from Jeopardy. Without it, I'd seriously consider blowing my brains out in his place.

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.

Looks like in Arronson's case, after the blowback he received for his Comment #171 post (where he basically admits he was an incel), he's decided to flagellate before his feminist masters in a sniveling post where he lays down his "core beliefs":

Quote:1. I believe that women are authors of their own stories, that they don’t exist merely to please men, that they are not homogeneous, that they’re not slot machines that ‘pay out’ but only if you say the right things. I don’t want my two-year-old daughter to grow up to be anyone else’s property, and I’m happy that she won’t. And I’d hope all this would no more need to be said, than (say) that Gentiles shouldn’t be slaughtered to use their blood in making matzo.

2. I believe everyone’s story should be listened to—and concretely, that everyone should feel 300% welcome to participate in my comments section. I don’t promise to agree with you, but I promise to try to engage your ideas thoughtfully, whether you’re a man, woman, child, AI-bot, or unusually-bright keyboard-pecking chicken. Indeed, I spend a nontrivial fraction of my life doing exactly that (well, not so much with chickens).

3. I believe no one has the right to anyone else’s sexual affections. I believe establishing this principle was one of the triumphs of modern civilization.

4. I believe women who go into male-dominated fields like math, CS, and physics deserve praise, encouragement, and support. But that’s putting the point too tepidly: if I get to pick 100 people (unrelated to me) to put onto a spaceship as the earth is being destroyed, I start thinking immediately about six or seven of my female colleagues in complexity and quantum computing. And no, Twitter: not because being female, they could help repopulate the species. Just because they’re great people.

5. I believe there still exist men who think women are inferior, that they have no business in science, that they’re good only for sandwich-making and sex. Though I don’t consider it legally practicable, as a moral matter I’d be fine if every such man were thrown in prison for life.

6. I believe that even if they don’t hold views anything like the above (as, overwhelmingly, they don’t), there might be nerdy males who unintentionally behave in ways that tend to drive some women away from science. I believe this is a complicated problem best approached with charity: we want win-win solutions, where no one is made to feel despised because of who they are. Toward that end, I believe open, honest communication (as I’ve been trying to foster on this blog) is essential.

7. I believe that no one should be ashamed of inborn sexual desires: not straight men, not straight women, not gays, not lesbians, not even pedophiles (though in the last case, there might really be no moral solution other than a lifetime of unfulfilled longing). Indeed, I’ve always felt a special kinship with gays and lesbians, precisely because the sense of having to hide from the world, of being hissed at for a sexual makeup that you never chose, is one that I can relate to on a visceral level. This is one reason why I’ve staunchly supported gay marriage since adolescence, when it was still radical. It’s also why the tragedy of Alan Turing, of his court-ordered chemical castration and subsequent suicide, was one of the formative influences of my life.

8. I believe that “the problem of the nerdy heterosexual male” is surely one of the worst social problems today that you can’t even acknowledge as being a problem—the more so, if you weight the problems by how likely academics like me are to know the sufferers and to feel a personal stake in helping them. How to help all the young male nerds I meet who suffer from this problem, in a way that passes feminist muster, and that triggers the world’s sympathy rather than outrage, is a problem that interests me as much as P vs. NP, and that right now seems about equally hard.

9. I believe that, just as there are shy, nerdy men, there are also shy, nerdy women, who likewise suffer from feeling unwanted, sexually invisible, or ashamed to express their desires. On top of that, these women also have additional difficulties that come with being women!

"I believe", "I believe", "I believe",... Maybe feminists can come up with some sort of Feminist-Nicene Creed for guys like this to repeat in front of the mirror every morning to profess their faith in the church of feminism and ask for atonement for their original sin of maleness.

Some chick wrote a response to Arronson, basically calling him a whiny baby and entitled and blah blah blah:

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/12/mit-p...-to-women/


Some quotes from that article where she sarcasticly "translates" what Arronson must have really meant:

"Translation: Having to explain my suffering to women when they should already be there, mopping my brow and offering me beers and blow jobs, is so tiresome."

"Translation: I was too busy JAQ-ing off, throwing tantrums, and making sure the chip on my shoulder was felt by everyone in the room to be bothered to do something like listen."

"Translation: I skimmed through feminist literature and got angry when I realized that they were going to spend all their time yapping about women’s problems, instead of getting onto the real problem that they, as women, are obligated to solve. Which is how to get someone to touch my cock without making me work at it."

This story needs to be held up as an example to male feminists everywhere. No matter how much grovel and prostrate yourselves before your feminist matriarchs, it will NEVER be enough. Arronson did everything he could to make his post digestible for feminists and to say anything that could possibly be construed as an attack on the feminist narrative, but he was still treated as nothing more then another "dude bro" despite being the exact opposite of one. These people will never ever give ground or admit that the are wrong on anything and even if you do eventually submit 100% you still never be respected by them.

RE: Salon: "The Plight of the Bitter Nerd" => What's wrong with Arthur Chu?
Clemmo's statement made me click on the hyperlink to see if she had other pics that were less fucked, only to read this:

Quote:Is Chu the Walter White of quiz shows? Chu likens himself to the child prodigy Ender, the title character of Ender's game, who is a master of virtual games but ends up waging actual war. “Ender breaks all the rules,” he says. “Because to him it’s just a game. And if you see it as a game, you start seeing logically what kind of strategies the rules imply. And you leave aside the social implications. And then you step back afterwards and you’re like ‘Ahh, so I just committed genocide.’ Hopefully what I’ve done is not equivalent to committing genocide.”

Those are some delusions of grandeur.

She's a dead ringer for Stephen King. Would bang only to repopulate earth after the apocalypse.

The dude, on the other hand, looks just like one of my roommate's pit bulls. Except the pit bull has a lot more muscle.

To be fair that is a genuine smile on her face. And he has the balls to put his on the hip (more the midriff?) of his own wife. They're an SMV match.

This guy is lucky he talks from the safety of a keyboard. If he were in any small bar in the South and said this, me and every other person would start taking swings at him. My family is from Georgia, my 4xs great grandfather fought in the trenches of Petersburg, saw Richmond burn, and was one of the few members of my family to live to furl the flag at Appomattox. Half the other people in the South can claim a similar heritage.

People like him just can't comprehend the depth of history and any truth beyond their narrow minded PC talking points.

I feel a rant coming on so I'm going to sign off.

Looks like nice titties though. Why'd he marry a 40 year old woman?

So you're saying you'd bang Stephen King to repopulate the earth?

Oh, she'd clean up okay. It's just how she is in those pictures, and how she takes care of herself. She's unfeminine in her appearance and posture. The face doesn't have any deep flaws, and she doesn't need to lose much weight. Give her a week with a woman that knew what she was doing and she could be moderately hot.
