Y’all know I increasingly subscribe to the r/K selection theory of political behavior. Which means — alas — compromise with liberals is literally impossible, because actual conversations with them are impossible. Their brains are mis-wired.
Sounds extreme, I know, but consider this. Manosphere blogger says something that upsets feminists. Feminists attack him on Twitter, a.k.a. the most public forum imaginable. Blogger favorites or re-tweets their abuse. Feminists break down crying.
Seriously. Read his piece. He screen caps tweets where they announce — hell, almost brag — that they’re incoherent rage puddles because some badthinker repeated their comments that are designed to be disseminated as widely as possible.
It’s unbelievable. I’ve been a dedicated left-watcher for years, and I think I’ve got a fair amount of their headspace pegged, but I never would’ve expected this. Forney suggests an explanation:
Narcissistic young women expect that men will behave in ways that are convenient for them, whether it’s not trying to “rape” them (in a world where “rape” now means everything from forcible penetration to making her uncomfortable), fitting into a pre-determined relationship script, or shirking from “misogynistic” opinions and running away. When reality fails to conform to their desires, they can’t handle it. They literally cannot understand that other people (and men specifically) are autonomous beings and not meat puppets that dance in the exact way they want.
That describes a LOT of bizarre leftist behavior, no? Those of us who had the misfortune of dealing with Morgan’s idiot troll infestation over at House of Eratosthenes saw something similar — he had a script all laid out in his head, and he’d stick to it until you delivered your lines, cutting and pasting the same comment dozens of times in increasingly desperate attempts to get us to read our damn cue cards already.
How can you possibly discuss anything with these people? They can’t — neurochemically can’t — process what you’re saying.
Anonymous Conservative draws appropriately bleak conclusions from this. Seriously — I’m sunshine and fucking rainbows compared to that guy. But I’m starting to think he’s right.Loading Likes...
