Why are the only "men" who commit the sin of mansplaining the sort who wear dresses?

It should be called transplaining.

Blogger Noah B #120 September 24, 2015 12:12 PM  

Scalzi likes Lionel Richie songs, and he doesn't care who knows it.

Blogger AmyJ September 24, 2015 12:20 PM  

Is he even capable of mansplaining? That implies that he had at least an iota of masculinity. What he does is more like squeesplaining.

Rekd.

Blogger Steve, the Dark Ninja of Mockery September 24, 2015 12:27 PM  

I like Lionel Ritchie, because I have two ears and a heart.

What goes on in the brain of a Scalzi when he sees a feminist hashtag designed to insult men, and immediately decides to jump on the ball-less bandwagon?

It's bizarre. Like if black people started twittering KKK memes.

Sure, I understand that on some level the scalzified male hopes he'll gain female approval/sex if he clowns and capers for the feminists obsequiously enough.

But this is taking it into the realms of memetic self-castration.

So... is it a fetish? Does Scalzi beg his strapping big wife to hold him down and spit in his mouth? Is he wearing trousers when he sends out this type of tweet?

Blogger Noah B #120 September 24, 2015 12:30 PM  

Liking Lionel Richie alone doesn't make a guy into a mangina, but in Scalzi's case it fits with the bigger picture.

Blogger Owen September 24, 2015 12:30 PM  

It's great, because he can't use his typical tactics, since he's talking to a privileged class in his circle. If she were POC, he probably would've apologized outright for causing her mental discomfort.

Blogger haus frau September 24, 2015 12:31 PM  

Run ins between male feminists and non feminist women are always fraught with comedy. Feminists, especially the male type, can't square women have moral agency with not being a feminist.
I had one of these conversations a while ago with an Amanda Marcotte idolizing manlette. It took a while of explaining to him that I legitimately don't see my interests reflected in feminism before he outright said that he thought women like me were brainwashed and he wanted to "help" me see the light. He knew it was condescending and patronizing but he was right so he couldn't be patriarchal (?).

Before Lionel Ritchie was Lionel Ritchie (tm), he was the lead singer for the Commodores.

The Commodores recorded this
He still performs it.

Don't let the fact that he now croons fluffy songs to make the ladies weak in the knees fool you, liking Lionel Ritiche is not necessarily indicative of low T.

Seriously, how can his daughter actually bench more than him? I don't think that's physically possible. High school girls are almost always lucky to be able to bench the empty bar. Is his daughter an actual athlete that trains? Or is he really unable to bench that much?

He had to be exaggerating, right? Right?

Blogger Dexter September 24, 2015 1:21 PM  

If he actually can't bench more than his daughter - or he's only pretending that's true - either way it's dickless and embarrassing.

Blogger totenhenchen September 24, 2015 1:23 PM  

When a feminist (male or otherwise) voices a negative about anything, it should be called "cuntplaining."

Blogger Russell (106) September 24, 2015 1:27 PM  

I asked him how was the dress modeling going for him.

Scalzi: "(pats head)
It's going great, thanks! How's 'being terrified of ever not being a bro' going for you?"

Vox was right: "They are assuming that their weaknesses apply to you and they are attempting to play upon those nonexistent weaknesses in order to try to send you into a psychological tailspin."

Blogger ScuzzaMan September 24, 2015 1:31 PM  

I dont get why she asks about double standards. According to feminist ideology, it is not a double standard for women to accuse men in ways that they would shriek and gibber over if done in the reverse. Because their official doctrine is that men cannot be the victims because men have all the structural power in our rape culture, just the same as there's officially no such thing as black against white racism, because white's have all the structural power.

Hence affirmative action, for example, in either case, is not bigotry at all, is not a double standard, is not problematic in any way.

The very PURPOSE of this doctrine was to prevent whites and men from objecting on the basis of double standards or any other logical argument, and the feminazis went even further and declared logic itself to be an oppressive tool of oppression invented by oppressive white males explicitly to oppress the eternally oppressed women and darkies.

If you read modern feminist propaganda, you can plainly see they've succeeded in eliminating all logic from their own thought processes, and perhaps even in eliminating all thought ...

Blogger Doom September 24, 2015 1:46 PM  

Personally, I absolutely believe in mansplaining. Women never get it, until they get it. Even so, they don't seem to ever change (explained well in Game, mind you, from what I have seen). It's part of their schtick, it's a draw, or a feature not a bug (once you know how to manage it). It is just that when someone like Scalzi does it, being on the wrong side of that in every way, it's got to fail. It's wonderful to see that he actually tries to do it, which means he knows it is right... somewhere in there. It's too bad that whatever, deep inside, which knows the truth, doesn't move that knowledge to a way of life rather than an accident against his conscious intent. He proves the point, then totally misses it, if because he is misusing it so terribly? Psychic slapstick at it's finest. At least his daughter doesn't stand him up so as to make him seem like a true pussy. Oh... wait... Never mind.

Blogger Rabbi B September 24, 2015 1:49 PM

I had a similar *experience*. Apparently you can purchase a phone case with Scalzi's picture on it over at Amazon.

When I asked if this picture would have been more aropos. I was subsequently deleted and blocked.

I asked him if had no sense of humor to which he snarked:

@scalzi Do you have no sense of humor? Why can't you laugh at yourself along with the rest of us?

@406Baruch I have a great sense of humor! For example, I love to point and laugh at sockpuppets!

Similar to my experience. My first run in with typical feminism was my first boyfriend in college. He told me I was brainwashed if I wanted to get married and have kids and actually think I'd be happy.

Someone commented on the Instapundit story about an antitrust suit against universities for their hiring practices, something to the effect of "I don't know why these academics think they are exempt from laws like this".

This exchange with Scalzi sounds similar. 'Men' like Scalzi seem like the type who operate with the kind of anti-feminism shield that Whedon used to have, where they could say and do whatever they wanted so long as they publicly supported the right causes and people. These guys are going to learn that Alinsky's book should have come with a WARNING! section, about what happens when your enemies learn to use your weapons against you.

That said, I saw something a while back; someone had done a series of short stories about various Sad/Rabid Puppies authors and supporters getting doxxed, and how the interactions with the SWAT team would go.

The search that lead me to that also helped me to find a short piece about the meeting of Sad Puppies and GamerGate, and it showed a cartoon of Vivian James holding a Sad Puppy with a GamerGate symbol on his collar, with the line "I don't know why everyone thinks you're mine, but you sure are cute" as a caption.

Did anyone see that? It might have been by the same guy who did the doxxing pieces, but I'm not sure, and I'd like to find it again. Despite remembering the line almost word for word, Google isn't helping.

That's funny. This may be somewhat off topic but that brings back memories of a college friend I had who was in a dead end, live in relationship for several years with a boyfriend who adamantly told her he did not want to marry her nor did he ever want more children. He was divorced with two kids who she often babysat. She told me on a number of occasions that she desperately wanted kids and to get married but had decided she probably only wanted those things because she had been programmed by society to want them so she decided to stay with him anyway. He ended up dumping her for someone else that he married and had children with.

Re: feMENists: I got so tired of them lecturing me about my "wasted life" at home my stock answer to the question "what do you do?" was "I'm a dominatrix." (deadpan delivery). Normal men would burst out laughing. Your Scalzies, not so much, although you'd think they'd like that kind of thing.

Scalzi's writing sounds so swishy and gay to me--not at all like a straight man. Anybody remember Christopher Lowell the interior designer? That's who pops in my head when I read Scalzi.

I like that Scalzi is a feminist.

There is a section in Orwell's The Road to Wigan Pier that explains that your average working Englishman might be attracted to the ideas of socialism... but then he goes to his first meeting of his local chapter and is so disgusted by the freaks and misfits: he explicitly mentions sex maniacs, nudists, feminists, and fruit-juice drinkers. Some things never change, I guess...

Anyway, Scalzi cannot proclaim his feminism loudly enough, as far as I'm concerned. He's got Wigan Pier Syndrome written all over him. Pictures of John Scalzi in his evening gown proclaiming this is what a feminist looks like ought to be shown to every middle-school student.

There was Chris Jericho and some other guy named Saturn. A little fued went on for a while, and then Jericho challenges Saturn to a "loser has to wear a dress" match.

So after the match, Jericho wins and Saturn had to wear a dress. A buddy got tickets and we went to see some big thing live, and Jericho came out and said something like "You know Saturn, when I said I was gonna beat your ass and make you wear a dress, I didn't think you'd actually like it."

There are parallels between women, gammas and lambdas.

Jack's Theory #1: Gammas are men who for some reason did not have a sufficient testosterone spike as infants and so their brains did not develop the structures necessary for masculine thought patterns. They respond to the world in the same way that women would, but the world still expects them to respond like men, creating significant problems for the Gamma.

Sometimes, the Kali Yuga actually transforms man into a pathetic golumn-esque creature. Scalzi is a prime example.

Scalzi must feel more relaxed now that the homo pedo child predator ring on the Left is coming out of the shadows. He'll have some solid backing and allies there.

It's always good in a battle when the enemy side is wearing uniforms, in this case dresses.

I think there is a huge cultural element. Gammas are more likely to happen in a female-dominated environment, where not only are do the men not have strong examples of manly leadership behavior, but any natural expressions of such behavior will be discouraged. So they subdue the "toxic masculinity" of themselves and others as they were taught to do.

Of course, not everybody responses to culture in the same way, so some theory like yours may partly explain the differences.

Scalzi's lying about the bench press to appease his daughter. Gotta be.
