Ça m'arrive assez souvent ces dernier temps pcq je met pas la femme sur un pied d'estale
Je la traite d'égal à l'homme en prenant en compte ses forces/faiblesse
J'etais plus ou moins un ce qu'on appelle incel a 22 ans et avant j'avais eu des copines (3) mais 0 confiance en moi elles m'avaient massacré mentalement (mon premier amour surtout) j'en voulais pas aux filles mais à moi je me disais être une merde et que je trouverai jamais de
Copine. Puis en vacances suite à une soirée alcoolisé je me suis dit osef je vais parler aux deux étrangères au bar qui viennent d'arriver ça va être drôle. Résultat mon premier coup d'un soir. Depuis j'ai changé je parle aux filles j'aborde dans la rue, je m'habille bien.

Alongside women's rights in the twenty-first century is the development of the men's rights movement, parts of which have culminated into the contemporary #manosphere, in the UK associated with Laurence Fox's Reclaim Party Deputy Leader, Martin Daubney.…
Consisting of online communities that ascribe to misogynistic ideologies, which objectify, disparage, & dehumanise women, the #manosphere also houses those who identify as involuntary celibate #incel. Last year, 'The Incel Rebellion' was published, examining this disturbing turn. Image
Drawing on ethnographic research & interviews, the book provides an original & timely insight into the development of the #manosphere, & into how & why men join & self-identify as #incel. But as this article reveals, how people write about them matters.…

I have no sympathy for male #incels, would be happy to personally remove them all from the gene pool

But they are in a way a predictable consequence of the path that society has taken.

1-2 decades ago, unmanly men had a choice between inceldom or pickup to improve themselves...
And the feminist establishment that controls the levers of power came down hard against pickup.

The worst thing for a man is weakness. Pickup offered young men a way to be powerful with parlor tricks and word games. Was that really so bad?
It seems to me that incels are growing as a community faster than pickup now - perhaps as a result of the harassment that the establishment has used against pickup.

That energy needs an outlet, they took the legitimate one away.

1. Before everyone starts celebrating too much, let me remind everyone about #GAMERGATE !

We, women, warned everyone about the dangerous growth of asshole far-right conservative men during Gamergate.

2. Women were harassed in games, on social media platforms, and in the comments under books written by women on @amazon . So much so, some women left social media or gave up writing careers for good. We even boycotted @Twitter . But did they do anything? NO!

We warned you all!
3. The country didn't want to listen to us... now you ALL have to deal with the outcome of a destroyed Republican party, and I'm here for it!!

And liberal men, we see you. WE KNOW which one of you said we were overreacting and we will treat you accordingly!

#Misogynie und #Rechtsextremismus - da gibt es in der Tat einige Verbindungen. Weitere Beispiele wären die Attentate auf Henriette Reker in Deutschlan, Joe Cox in UK oder Gabrielle Giffords in den USA.
Anders Breivik hat in seinem "Manifest" gezielte Angriffe gegen progressive Frauen in der Politik propagiert. Zudem bislang wenig erforscht scheint auch die so genannte Szene der #incels zu sein, die in den USA und in Kanada bereits durch Gewalttaten, die auch theoretisch
hinterlegt werden, in Erscheinung getreten ist.
Hierzu sei dieser Artikel auf @ForeignPolicy empfohlen:…

1/ For some reason I hadn't seen this. A far-right anti-semitic extremist attack on a Synagogue during #YomKippur, known as "the day of atonement".…
2/ The far-right extremist confessed. His profile is not that different from the far-right young American #incels radicalized online by "professional" white nationalists.…
3/ It's time to re-negotiate our "tolerance with intolerance". Karl Popper described it as the seemingly paradoxical idea that, "In order to maintain a tolerant society, the society must be intolerant of intolerance." And he was right.
