The woman who didn't exist

Gorilla Mindset author Mike Cernovich explains what it is like meeting a supposedly fictional character:
For years I read a blog by Vox Day, but to be honest, I had my concerns about the man. I thought it was weird that he pretended to have an attractive wife. Why do this?

John Scalzi, one of Vox Day's haters, had convinced me and others than Vox's wife did not exist. As Vox did not post pictures of his wife, I took Scalzi at his word that @spacebunnyday was a sock puppet.


I learned a valuable lesson about John Scalzi. He's a con man.

After seeing John Scalzi joke about being a rapist on his blog, I decided to stop taking him at his word. I investigated the facts for myself. Vox Day's wife is real, and she's pretty cool.
Read the rest of it there. It's rather amusing to learn that there were actually some people who fell for the SJW line that SB didn't exist, and that I was posting pictures of some pretty fitness model I'd found somewhere. I didn't post pictures of her or talk about her very much because my family life is no one else's business.

But now she is active on Twitter, lots of people follow her because she's a smart woman who has her own opinions that she is perfectly capable of defending without my help, and she is well-respected in the homeschooling community, an area in which she is an accomplished and knowledgeable expert. I'm proud of her and her accomplishments, even if I'm little more inclined to talk about them here than I am about my own.

SJW men may pretend to be champions of women, but as Scalzi's behavior demonstrates, they don't hesitate to denigrate them and disappear them simply to try to score points off other men. And, of course, Mike should have known better than to believe an SJW about anything, because, as we all know, SJWS ALWAYS LIE.

I always find it so funny that people think Spacebunny isn't real. Mike Cernovich must not have read the comments for the years he's been reading. I'm not sure that Vox could sock puppet Spacebunny's "dear" quite as effectively.

If a social justice warrior honestly admitted that it always lied, I wonder if the paradox would open a pinhole in the very fabric of reality, or if it would just lose its rabbit-status and evolve into a normal human...

Admit it: John Scalzi isn't real.

He's a composite character you invented to illustrate the worst traits of snarky male feminist gammatude.

I have to admit, you had me fooled for a long time, Vox. But you couldn't resist overplaying your hand.

The fact that all "John Scalzi's" books are a pastiche of more respected authors was the first clue. But I thought "hey, maybe his creative mind is just as bare and forlorn as a pantry after Big Seanan McGuire rolls by".

But then you came up with increasingly ridiculous antics for your literary meat puppet.

"Scalzi" in a dress.

"Scalzi" boasting that his daughter is stronger than him.

"Scalzi's" full name is John Michael Scalzi. That's an anagram of "MALICE JOHN'S A ZILCH"

Shyeah, right, as if we wouldn't notice.

That's just it; their styles of commenting / Tweeting are so different, that it should be obvious it's not Vox pretending to be SB. If you're going to accuse Vox of subterfuge, at least accuse him of suckering one of his sycophants into posing as SB.

Anyway, now that it' obvious SB is real, what is Scalzi's response going to be? What is the typical Gamma way of handling a situation like this, in which he's shown to be a fraud? Double down? Move on and pretend it didn't happen?

Vox also never forces his family on us - it's not a form of public validation. I've been a regular for a few years now, and all I know about Vox's children are:
- there are plural of them
- one of them plays soccer, has been in a few fights, and loses to Vox at war games. He is good at them and improving, but is 'not superlative' a strategist.

Which is about right.

The very best of the best on average can hold cover without breaching for about 7 months. Longer than that requires a deep psychological defect that allows oneself to disassociate from their true identity. To get to even 6 months requires a person with strict physical and psychological controls in place, as well as rock solid discipline and drive. When you hear about investigations having a person "undercover" for a year or more, it's almost always a person with only partial cover, where they are able to integrate large portions of their real identity into their false personae. Even then, many or most have blown cover or are made, even by dimwitted criminals.

The average untrained person trying to maintain a cover will make it about 15 minutes at the keyboard before they've breached their identity or cover story.

When someone claims VD has created a cover identity where he's a family man when he really isn't, or that his family is something that it's not, they are essentially saying that VD is a legend making spy, or alternatively, a complete nut case.

Blogger Rabbi B July 31, 2015 11:22 AM  

"I never doubted Spacebunny was real for the same reason I never doubted Ender was real: Vox writes about them with too much easy detail, it's too consistent . . .

No. VD is not an insecure, petty, little liar who needs to prop up some fantastical image of himself. VD is the genuine article committed to truth, could care less about who agrees or disagrees with him, or what anyone thinks for that matter. That's precisely what makes him either deeply respected or deeply hated.

His haters deepest longing is that he would be exposed as some kind of fraud. If they can disqualify the man, they can disqualify the truths he represents and continue to make lies their refuge .

You would think after 10+ years of VP, weekly columns at WND, and other public venues, folks would have a pretty good idea of this man's character. It reminds me of the Master when he asks for which good deed the people wish to stone Him.

Also brings to mind:

“I have spoken openly to the world,” Jesus replied. “I always taught in synagogues or at the temple, where all the Jews come together. I said nothing in secret. Why question me? Ask those who heard me. Surely they know what I said.” (John 18)

Couldn't be more true in an age where the internet is forever. Life is pretty simple when you're committed to the truth.

There is a concept in Judaism known as hakaras hatov, often translated as "gratitude." The more literal rendering is "recognizing the good."

MPAI - "Most People Are Ingrates"

I know I don't just speak for myself, and I may not be a smart man, but I recognize the good here and what Vox does day in and day out before an audience of One.

Or... he could reasonably claim that you are known to use sockpuppets


the primary evidence for Vox using sockpuppets is ... the Spacebunny twitter feed?

but she's real?

do you have any OTHER evidence to back up this assertion that "Vox is known" to use sockpuppets?

or, like anthropogenic global warming, is that just the consensus view amongst rabbits?

You're living in a fantasy. There is no Spacebunny, no Tooth Fairy, and there is no Queen of England! This is the real world and you need to wake up!

I knew Spacebunny was real when you mentioned off-hand one day that she was from the great state of Wisconsin. Never, if he were imagining a fictitious super-babe wife, would a man born and raised in Minnesota conjure up an implicit confession that Wisconsin women ARE superior to Minnesota women unless he had real, personal knowledge that it was, in fact, true. Q.E.D.

Full disclosure I am from the great state of Wisconsin.

It's mostly likely quite a bit worse. Maintaining a comprehensive online personae that is fake and internally consistent for years would be substantially more difficult and have more opportunities for failure than would the vast majority of "undercover" police operations. Online, for people like VD, there are enemies who really are out to get you.

In a dream, I met you, SB, and some of the other ilk. No, not a weird dream. Other than meeting some of you all. Never happen. The thing is, I didn't know if SB looked like until the post with her recently, along with your pet obituary. Yeah... it was you guys. Since I dreamed before I saw the picture... I just wondered if, somehow, you had posted a picture of her before. They say you aren't supposed to be able to dream of faces you haven't seen. Then again, quite often, they are idiots and wrong. Just... thought I'd pass that along, interesting to you or not. My guess is, I would recognize you, too, in real life. I just won't be in Italy, or Europe, any time soon. And I wouldn't be there for social calls anyway. Just on the way to disappearing in new ways.

@87, it's not exactly secret science. Most undercover police work is very lightly covered, if at all. It's much closer to non-uninformed police work. All of the popular literature out there that is in relation to this is also good primary source - there are writers talking about joining criminal gangs, biker gangs, other criminal enterprises, and it's all lightly covered. Meaning, any background investigation on the person would reveal gaps in the purported cover identity.

It's really a fools game for normal people to keep up with any type of long-term online deception. VD is probably pretty good at spotting people who are phonies at this point in his life, and all it takes is a simple slip to merge identities permanently.

Reg @42 Do they still make 'Hustler' mags? If so why? You can see everything on the internet, live, in full color with no staple in her navel."

Comment was addressed to 'Bad Breath' who has not returned to my knowledge. I said "Moldy magazines' in regard to bad breath. I never read or looked at them so I don't know about staples and navel, I can see where cynical humor is lost though.

"It's really a fools game for normal people to keep up with any type of long-term online deception. VD is probably pretty good at spotting people who are phonies at this point in his life, and all it takes is a simple slip to merge identities permanently. "

If anyone comments around here at VP for any reasonable length of time, the phonies are pretty reliable at exposing themselves for the snot-gobbling ankle-biting attention whores they really are. They can't seem to help themselves.

I thinks it's due in large part to the high-caliber-no-nonsense-you're-gonna-get-called-out-on-your-BS-environment that has been established (not to mention the high quality of a lot of the commenters who contribute here on a regular basis).

Vox just makes running VP look so effortless and easy.

""SJW men may pretend to be champions of women, but as Scalzi's behavior demonstrates, they don't hesitate to denigrate them ""

It's not just women. The left will use the most vile insults against women, blacks, gays and any other "protected" group member who doesn't toe the leftist line. I always said their main rule is "It's okay when we do it"

"SJW men" = radical liberal construction = no such thing...

One is dissing real men by positively associating them with faggots.

Blogger Thordaddy July 31, 2015 4:33 PM  

It would be foolish to think only SJWs can conjure up virtual straw man in lieu of the real thing. This place is ripe with such exercise.

Blogger Azimus July 31, 2015 6:19 PM  

OK here's the new theory: since the posting of the adorable stuffed animal otter the other day,I'm no longer convinced that VOX DAY exists anymore... oh yes he existed once, but now? Either an extremely well designed android, or a clone, or perhaps a here-to-fore unknown evil twin who has assumed the mantle of Vox? Will we ever really know for sure?

no you deceitful little cunt, that's not how this works.

according to the rules of the blog, you are required to answer direct questions with facts and evidence or retract:
http://voxday.blogspot.com/2009/01/rules-of-blog_01.html
2. You are expected to back up your assertions, so don't be surprised if you happen to get called on them. If you fail to back up an assertion when called on it, but refuse to retract the statement, understand that I reserve the right to delete the relevant comment and all subsequent comments you attempt to make. ....


so, just in case you missed it, there have already been multiple requests for this information that "it is known" that Vox uses sock puppets.

produce this information or SHUT THE FUCK UP.



otoh, i'm now thinking of Vox as a smallish delivery van.

This entire SB isn't real BS really pisses me off.

Way back in 2006, my wife and I attended the Homeschool Conference in St. Paul MN. MACHE
Minnesota Association of Home Educators

I told several regulars at the VP blog that we were going to be there. SB told me that she would be there and would like to meet me.

My wife is witness that we met and visited with SB (not her real name), she told me to call her by her real name. We talked for about 20 minutes, about family, common interests, (we didn't have a lot of those, other than the blog, since she lives a little different lifestyle that an Iowa farmer and his wife do.

She was friendly, personable and very polite to a fat farm boy.

I came back home and bragged that I had met the lovely SB on this blog. I told all the details just as I recounted now.

If you think SB is a imaginary figure, then not only were all the readers of this blog duped, my wife and I saw a ghost, a lovely blonde haired ghost. This means you think I'm making it up. That I lied about meeting the lovely SB. You think my wife is a liar.

And I think you are an idiot.

It has to be, simply for the fact intelligence-grade tradecraft is expensive. When I was working with people helping the dying by helping grow pot, I burned three narcs sent out to infiltrate.

Also, thanks to reading hacker zines the whole Snowden thing isn't a surprise. In fact the big thing was the James Bond-like TAO programs... which you can justify going after UBL, but not some dealer.

Let's be candid: Scalzi hates SB because she look so much better in a dress that it gives him body image issues. So his defense is the standard fat/ugly girl response to pictures of models: "that can't be real".
