MetaI'm Milo Yiannopoulos, AMA (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m

I'm a journalist and broadcaster who writes about feminism (darling), men's issues, gaming and whatever else grabs my interest. Looking forward to hearing from you. I'll answer questions here for the next hour or two, and check back regularly over the next day. Ask me anything.

AMA rules: http://bit.ly/1Rez3EO

Edit: Going to take a break for a bit, but I'll check in with you all later. Some brilliant contributions here--and not just from me! Hope it's been enjoyable for you all so far. As I say, I'll check in again in a bit so feel free to keep asking questions.

A 14 year old friend of mine got suspended for telling a student(girl) feminist in his class that the wage gap was a myth. She cried and he got an inschool suspension, he then gets an essay assignment(unrelated) to write about why feminism is a great movement and how The Great Gatsby is patriarchal and sexist. He's stuck in the downward spiraling loop of punishment by the school for things he thinks are bullshit and is voicing himself. He is pulling F's in all his classes and he feels rejected by the education system, how do I get it through his head that school is important and help him feel that he still has control in his life? Should he speak out against his school, his teachers, what should I tell him?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 323 points324 points  (8 children)

US, specifically Illinois. Sorry I couldn't respond sooner but my account is new.

[–]kidchillin 22 points23 points  (6 children)

http://imgur.com/tIHt5ld there is the assignment he was given. His teacher is saying that everything bad in society is his fault and that being a man is sexist. You must be a feminist.

[–][deleted] 25 points26 points  (2 children)

He shouldn't have apologized.

[–]kidchillin 13 points14 points  (0 children)

He didn't apologize, he has a very stubborn, driven nature. That's most likely why he got suspended, he made her cry, made it worse, didn't apologize. I love this kid because he reminds me of a young me. I don't want to watch myself get beaten by the system again.

[–]Boovs4life 132 points133 points  (11 children)

Hi Milo. Huge fan i just recently watched the Milo vs Rebecca Reid debate. You completely destroyed her with logic while her responses were terrible and i noticed she always said "i feel like" or "i believe that" while you always stated solid facts and backed it up with even more evidence. Keep up the great work in defending us against the feminazis!

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 312 points313 points  (10 children)

They can't win against facts. So facts are the best weapon.

Facts, and great hair.

[–]Senior ContributorNightwingTRP 249 points250 points  (35 children)

Hi Milo, thanks in advance, it's very generous of you to give your time here.

Despite the rise of the cultural libertarians online, here in the UK we still have a deeply engrained sexism within our political system that allows female politicians to openly state words to the effect of "fathers don't really matter" (Harriet Harman) and openly laughing at the male suicide epidemic "because every day is international men's day." (Jess Phillips.) Naturally any male politician who said the female equivalent would have been sacked on the spot. It is truly galling to see Jess Phillips is still in post.

Given the way our political system works, that most politicians come from very privileged backgrounds, do you see them actually coming around to balance things out? From what I can tell, it's in their favour to keep the focus on sexism and racism as a distraction from rising levels of inequality and poverty. (Particularly given the recent research from the LSE indicating that there is a glass floor for people born into wealthy and powerful backgrounds.) I'm not really convinced that there is a significant level of either sexism (against women at least) or racism in our society, and I'm also not convinced these people are genuinely as stupid as the SJWs who think there is. That's my educated explanation of the situation. Would be interested in your thoughts.

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 342 points343 points  (33 children)

Yes, there are plenty of horrible, sociopathic people openly laughing at serious health issues in public life--on both sides of the Atlantic. The flippancy with which feminists and female politicians dismiss the male suicide epidemic and IMD is chilling. And yes, I think it comes from privilege and ignorance.

Personally I want to see more irreverent working-class heroes charge into politics--or at least the people who stick up for common sense and science, which political and media elites no longer do.

Farage and Trump both perform this function in politics; people like Coulter, McInnes and me do so in media. And although you might not want any of these people running a country or editing a newspaper, respectively (I do, but I'm an anarchist--YMMV), what cultural libertarians and mischievous dissident thinkers are doing--and how terrifying they are to the Establishment--is hugely exciting.

We're launching nukes into politically correct spaces and discourses because we recognise what you all recognise: that telling the truth has become a punishable offence.

Leftist compassion is generally not really compassion - it's Marxist class struggle (ie rooting for the underdog because you want to see the system destroyed) mixed with virtue signalling.

I think that explains why leftists generally don't donate much to charity. Studies have shown that conservatives donate far, far more.

[–]ThatLexxyFellow 218 points219 points  (19 children)

Hi Milo. As a left-leaning centrist who is increasingly disgusted by every political extreme, I just want to say thank you for fighting this fight. We may have different points of view on many things, but at the end of the day what matters is that you're standing up for my rights and the rights of others when precious few are. As a male rape victim whose attacker tried to go to the police with a false accusation in order to cover up her misdeeds, I am horrified with the way people like me are treated, and thrown under the bus to fit a narrative.

So thank you for stepping up when it mattered.

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 215 points216 points  (0 children)

Thanks. I will keep fighting for you, because this stuff matters.

How to fight again feminism without ruining your career prospects?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 415 points416 points  (13 children)

For most people, the answer is: don't try. At least not yet. It's too soon. Let people like me clear the way first. We're winning, and we're pushing the boundaries of what it's acceptable to say, and before long you'll be able to speak more freely too. The best way you can help at the moment is support the work of those you think are pushing in the right direction.

[–]Modredpillschool 178 points179 points  (33 children)

Thanks for coming to do this AMA here. Your work is often posted with great admiration here.

My question- What do you think about the cultural shift that TRP represents? Many consider us to be just a bunch of misogynists, including men's rights supporters who would prefer not to have anything to do with us. What's your take on TRP?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 435 points436 points  (28 children)

People who virtue-signal for a living (most journalists, most people on Twitter) can't understand why a gay guy would spend his time sticking up for straight dudes. They are idiots. I write about this stuff because I see people being lied about and I don't like it and because I think third-wave feminism is driving the sexes apart and I don't think that's good for the future of the species.

As for the misogyny stuff, well. I've never met a single MRA, PUA, Red Piller, you name it with 10% of the hatefulness, vitriol and spite of an Amanda Marcotte or Jessica Valenti. By and large the men I meet in places like this are smart, creative, funny, provocative and interesting.

[–]ThunderCuntylicious 51 points52 points  (1 child)

[–]derpylord143 10 points11 points  (3 children)

We in the MRA communities by no means consider you woman haters, we (or at-least many) consider the idea of manipulating a system that is considerably against us to obtain sex, as something that leaves a bad taste in our mouth, however we have nothing against the idea of "improving yourself" in fact many of us (i have at times) advocated this, i have seen others advocate the fact that some of the things brought up here are incredibly important, at one point i saw people on the MRA forums discussing the low self-esteem of males within society, solely because it was brought up here and we were discussing the merits of the red-pill.

We don't consider you misogynists, we simply dislike some aspects of the approach you take, but that's only some aspects, we do find some people such as "roosh" deplorable, but that's an individual and he by no means represents the entirety of your movement. Personally i would like to see closer collaboration between TRP and MRA's when it comes to addressing mens issues, specifically related to suicide and the general low self-esteem of men, and i think much of the MRA community wouldn't mind this, we just don't like some aspects of your approach (but when it comes to the areas i would like to see better collaboration on, they aren't a necessity), and we dislike that people seem to represent us as if we were you guys, however thats to be expected, no one likes to be consistently called the wrong name.

[–]∞ Mod | RP Vanguardbsutansalt 59 points60 points  (1 child)

Have you seen the AMA by Karen Straughan? What is your opinion on what lead to her AMA to begin with, which was her defense that TRP should be allowed to exist, in essence because men need a "safe space" to exchange ideas because of how vilified men are throughout society these days anytime they speak their mind.

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 58 points59 points  (0 children)

[–]Jobby_jabber 106 points106 points [recovered]

I’m from /r/AltTRP, a small sub where the not-so-straight come to talk shop about sexual strategy. One of the topics that is recurrent both on the sub and in my own personal experience is the feminization of gay men. There seems to be a trend of gay men following what would otherwise be feminine sexual strategies and falling into the same psychological pitfalls that are common amongst women. Often individual guys are just dismissed as queeny or particularly effeminate, but I don’t think it’s a matter of isolated cases. The effect seems much more widespread. Jack Donovan writes a pretty good defense of the masculine gay male in Androphilia but it’s starting to seem like a mythical creature.

What is your perception of the gay male population at large? What can be done to find better men?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 243 points244 points  (33 children)

Gays are so boring. They've allowed the Left to domesticate them with "gay marriage." What the fuck. The whole point of being gay is pushing boundaries, getting away with murder, testing the limits of what can be thought and said. Gays are natural cultural libertarians.

Gays are also allies in the fight against feminism--we're subject to many of the same injustices men are, such as paying more in tax for fewer services, and we don't even want to have sex with women! In a way, the structural unfairnesses visited upon men in society are even more unjust when applied to gays because we don't have skin in the reproductive game.

That's why it's a shame to see some gays--but only some--buy into progressive bullshit and start playing along with the genderqueer nonsense. But take heart: half the gay men in the UK at the last election admitted they were voting conservative. The queeny, hand-wringing, language-policiing LGBT losers are the minority.

Those campy, prissy, lisping queers are a large slice of gay life, but there are plenty of gay men who find all that stuff utterly repugnant. They are starting to get braver about saying so, in my experience.

[–]Notthevictim 24 points25 points  (10 children)

Just curious, do you personally believe in gay marriage? I've never really heard your opinion on that. I understand that you believe gays shouldn't get married/"domesticated", but for those that do prefer that lifestyle, are you personally against them having that right?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 82 points83 points  (3 children)

I think gay marriage is a shame. Maybe the best explanation I've given was with Dave Rubin - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0505RbdG5k

[–][deleted] 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I wish I could quote you on my Facebook :D

People just don't get it; they demand freedom, they give them gay marriage; they demand equality, they get quotas; they demand a livelihood, they get longer working hours... AND THEY'RE HAPPY ABOUT IT!!!

[–]ACraftyApe 91 points92 points  (10 children)

Oh one more question;

It is ancient history for me now but when I was in university, an unpleasant feminazi lecturer literally accused me of sexual harrassment and reported me because on our universitys facebook page I posted a spiderman meme that said "I'm seriously about to slap a bitch" that wasn't directed at anyone. When I tried to defend myself and justify myself she just threw the metaphorical book at me and basically implied I had no right to defend myself because I went against some vague, open to interpretation university rules that I was never made aware of. I ended up getting an 18 month caution attached to my university student record that left me too concerned to apply for jobs where they might look back at my university record. So my question is a tough one but what is the best way to deal with these dogmatic loonies that are happy to make your life a misery when you did something so minor just for a laugh?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 166 points167 points  (4 children)

Keep your head down at school and don't get caught.

What are your thoughts on MGTOW?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 352 points353 points  (14 children)

Men are told constantly by the media and by politicians that they are broken and evil--that men are the source of all the world's ills.

Bullshit. If there's a gender in crisis, it's women. Women are in a total mess, thanks to feminism, asking for things they don't really want and turning themselves into grotesque spectacles because someone told them their self-esteem shouldn't be tied to their sex appeal. They end up more miserable than ever before.

The fact is, most women don't deserve most men. If I were straight, I suspect I would be going my own way too.

[–][deleted] 147 points148 points  (3 children)

Hi Milo,

Huge fan. Been following you for almost a year (not in a creepy way ;)). Do you have a speaking tour in the Western US anytime soon? Also do you think we'll need a major event (war, economic collapse) before gynocentrism finally begins to retreat?

PS. Made you a thug life video. Enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVSPwPrpQSo&feature=youtu.be

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 105 points106 points  (12 children)


Yes--hope to be back in March/April.

As for war or collapse--we're already fighting one, with radical Islam. Europe's demographics are being radically altered by mass immigration and the refugee crisis. Once women see what happens when you import real rape culture into western cities, you'll start to see a lot of change...

You've said that it was a lot harder to come out as conservative than to come out as gay. I'm not gay but know exactly what you mean about coming out as conservative.

Any tips? Have your politics put any strains on some friendships/relationships you've had?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 174 points175 points  (7 children)

Anyone who will ostracise you for differing political opinions isn't worth having in your life. Fuck them. Cut them out of yours first.

[–]TRP VanguardCyralea 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Great answer. When your value is high, new, interesting people will come into your life one way or another. Don't waste time with close-minded morons.

[–]PedroIsWatching 131 points132 points  (35 children)

Hi, Milo.

In listening to you recently on the Joe Rogan Experience, you seem to have deeply held religious beliefs. How do you rationalize your support of that religion when they've done all they can to ostracize people of your sexual orientation?

I'm not against religion (the backbone of the stereotypical 50s nuclear family is religion), but it's interesting seeing your stance on it.

Edit: also, fuck you. The Princess Bride is a masterpiece of cinema.

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 290 points291 points  (33 children)

Anyone who suggests being Catholic and being gay are incompatible is ignorant not only about homosexuality but Christianity, too.

For one thing, the Catholic church has done more to shelter homosexuals from persecution than any other institution in history. Worried about getting bullied, arrested or worse for your sexual proclivities? Join the clergy, and the church will protect you. It was that way for hundreds of years, way before the rest of society caught up and stopped chemically castrating gays.

I've never in my life experienced prejudice or discrimination from a Catholic for my sexual orientation. Gays, on the other hand, have told me to go take a bath with a toaster and have come close to physically assaulting me because I have the wrong political opinions.

I can't remember who said this, but there's a great quote about Protestants going to church because they know they are good people; Catholics going because they know they aren't. What's wrong with having a code for life you believe will lead you to happiness, even if you fall short? (Because by the way, that whole "born this way" thing? It's PR, with no basis in science. We are all a mixture of nature and nurture.)

The Left insists on ideological purity: step outside the prevailing consensus and you are history. That's how you get feminists like Germaine Greer vilified by campus feminists. Yet the consistency they insist on from others--how can you be a gay Catholic? You must hate yourself!--they never demand from themselves, indulging in an absurd pic'n'mix approach to personal identity where a person can, with a straight face, claim to be a "polyamorous nonbinary genderqueer hobbit," as though that were somehow less ridiculous than a Christian who happens to be gay.

Don't go along with petty, intellectually vacuous demands for "consistency." Recognise that life is messy and complicated and that people are messy and complicated too. We are all conflicted; we are all trying to do the best we can to live a good life. We all contain multitudes, as Whitman put it.

The Princess Bride is garbage and you should feel ashamed of yourself for pretending to like it for social plaudits.

[–]bluedrygrass 13 points14 points  (1 child)

You even aknowledge that there are no scientific proofs backing the "born this way" concept. Amazing. If only a tenth of world's people reasoned as you do, we would be living in a better world.

On a side note, i'm always amazed at the sheer ignorance people shows about the percentage of homosexuals in the clergy. People act like priests, bishops and cardinals were stereotipical straight men, if anything, the percentage of homosexuals is much much higher inside the church than outside, and it's easy to see and to understand.

[–]UndecidedThrownaway 17 points18 points  (8 children)

At my church the only sentiment that seems to remain is that they don't want marriages, but with that in mind, in my church body there are active members who are in fact gay... I hate the catholic guilt narrative :(

[–]HereComesChuckieChan 22 points23 points  (7 children)

I've fallen away from the church, but I have to say I don't know any Catholics that actively dislike or try to guilt people for being gay. They are certainly anti gay marriage, but respect for all people is taught in the Catholic church. The media seems to clump together groups like Evangelicals with the church and just assume the anti gay marriage sentiment is from a place of hate. It really isnt. Catholics truly believe that allowing gay marriage will bring heavy damage to the institution of marriage, that isn't from a place of hate, it's from a place of concern for one of the most important parts of a religious persons life. Totally understandable in my opinion.

[–]Ohowun 72 points73 points  (7 children)

Milo, yo. Why are sjw and feminists so very entitled? What generational shift has happened to make them think they are such victims and how can we prevent it in the next generation?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 232 points233 points  (15 children)

Millennials are the first entirely middle-class generation in history. None of them have ever wanted for anything, so they invent grievances and manufacture trauma. No one--not parents, teachers or professors--ever told them they were being ridiculous or challenged their assumptions, so they have grown up into foolish, poorly-educated and egotistical young adults spouting nonsense dogma about oppression.

Universities bear most of the responsibility for this. Safe space and trigger warning culture should be stamped out; free speech should be rigorously enforced. And space must be made for libertarian, classical liberal and right-wing professors, so students have access to a range of views.

[–]∞ Mod | RP Vanguardbsutansalt 47 points48 points  (8 children)

Christina Hoff Sommers noted in a recent interview that it was the Dear Colleague Letter that was the defining moment that emboldented SJWs and campus liberals to go full retard with their "regressive" behaviors. I think she hit the nail on the head with this one. Ever since 2011-2012, things took a sharp turn for the worse. You mentioned before that campus administrators are allowing these kids to run around unchecked, and I think it's this specter of Title IX that the DCL represents that's driving all this.

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Yes, for sure. The DCL had the effect it did because it threatened the one thing colleges care about: their funding.

[–]Interversity 17 points18 points  (2 children)

For anyone who wants to know more: the Dear Colleague letter on sexual assault (AKA April 4th directive) directly guides colleges and universities that receive federal funding (~100%) to use school tribunes and justice systems to investigate and prosecute sexual assault cases. In addition, most egregiously, it commands the use of the 'preponderance of the evidence' standard, which is to say that if it is 50.1% likely that the claim is true, the defendant is found guilty. In many cases this results in suspension, expulsion, removal from university housing or jobs, restraining orders etc. often without sufficient evidence.

In addition, guidelines for interim measures are provided, and list such measures as changing housing arrangements (kick the rapist off campus), restraining orders (make the rapist live in fear while on campus), removal from shared classes (ruining rapist's ability to complete their degree on time), etc. all of which can be instituted with NO EVIDENCE of any crime being committed, and we already know of multiple cases where such measures have been taken against students who are known to not have committed a crime. I'll dig up the story.

I recently assisted a young man who was subjected by administrators at his small liberal arts university in Oregon to a month-long investigation into all his campus relationships, seeking information about his possible sexual misconduct in them (an immense invasion of his and his friends’ privacy), and who was ordered to stay away from a fellow student (cutting him off from his housing, his campus job, and educational opportunity) — all because he reminded her of the man who had raped her months before and thousands of miles away. He was found to be completely innocent of any sexual misconduct and was informed of the basis of the complaint against him only by accident and off-hand. But the stay-away order remained in place, and was so broadly drawn up that he was at constant risk of violating it and coming under discipline for that.


[–]Wiegraf_Belias 16 points17 points  (2 children)

And space must be made for libertarian, classical liberal and right-wing professors, so students have access to a range of views.

Would certainly be nice to see that instead of the increasing calls for racial diversity across American campuses in the wake of the "Mizzou" protests.

We should be moving further into the realm where gender and race doesn't matter, but rather your individual actions, opinions and ability to use logic, reason and facts.

Instead, it feels like the authoritarian left is pulling us back to a pro-segregation society all in the name of feelings and superficial representation.

Ultimately, if you feel uncomfortable and unrepresented simply because someone in a position of authority doesn't share something as meaningless as their genitals or skin colour as you,, then that says quite a lot about you as an individual.

[–]valyss 21 points21 points [recovered]

Just now I pictured myself in a lecture hall with a professor of another race. Then I imagined feeling uncomfortable and unrepresented because of it, like I somehow couldn't relate to or accept that person as my educator because they weren't the same race. I felt like a racist piece of shit. If that is how these people live every day, that is kind of horrifying. They're willfully embracing their own deeply racist attitudes.

[–]Wiegraf_Belias 16 points17 points  (0 children)

There's a reason so many say that these people lack self-awareness and are simply projecting their own bigotry on the rest of society...

[–][deleted] 37 points38 points  (3 children)

Hey Milo,

I'd just like to thank you for stopping by, especially after scheduling difficulties. I'd also just like to thank you for your journalistic work. It's absolutely fantastic to have a male representing male issues and doing a terrific job of it. I laugh every single time you rhetorically rape some feminist on the air.

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 35 points36 points  (1 child)

Sorry I had to reschedule! And thank you for having me.

[–]CCRJ 38 points39 points  (3 children)

Hey Milo. Do you think that false rape accusations are more common than society and feminists like to make out? I was falsely accused of rape and the charges were dropped. I had to go to through 6 months of unnecessary stressing though. I think it's ridiculous how a woman can claim rape and potentially ruin a mans life just because she had sex that she regretted, wants to get revenge on her partner, wants to cover up infidelity..etc. There's a forum dedicated entirely to false rape accusations and it seems like it's a common occurrence. The worst part is that women rarely get prosecuted for making false allegations.

I am ex state law enforcement, and when I brought this up with the sex crimes squad they told me six out of ten rape claims are false. My respect for them grew tremendously, because they knew it was a problem and handled things with dignity.

[–]SpaceCrunch 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I got into a situation where I took a girl home from the bar and her friends called the police, accusing me of rape. The police came to my house and put me in handcuffs. Shortly after that though, they started being super cool to me, like they just knew the whole thing was bullshit.

Milo, Thank you very much for your exemplary work and for doing this AMA.

The goalposts of being "not racist/sexist/masculine" are always moving when leftists are in power. Where/When do you see the current censorship of any pro-male sentiment ending?

Moral responsibility, accusations of phobias, and statistical misinterpretation is often used against men in order to get them to believe in gender equality and other such nonsense. When confronted with these strategies used against them, men often cover their eyes and recite the party lines. Is there anything compelling that you have seen which can snap them out of this trance (Besides potential for sex/videogames) ?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 218 points219 points  (22 children)

Thanks for the kind words!

I genuinely think we're about to see a big shift away from crazy feminist progressivism. The public is starting to catch on now, and they are incensed by the lunacy and unfairness of what they see. Most women don't hate men, and they are appalled by misandrist feminists who do.

There will always be a vocal minority of lunatics, but from my interactions with journalists and TV producers, the appetite for outrage-led, fact-free stories about confected feminist grievances is coming to an end. When that happens, men and arguments in favour of men will naturally begin to reassert themselves, because our views are based on facts, not feelings.

[–]TheIceMagCometh 93 points94 points  (15 children)

Hi Milo! My husband (a conservative Democrat) and I have repeated disagreements about how dangerous for America the extreme PC climate on campuses and elsewhere. He contends that college youth have been this dumb and irritating since the 60's and nobody really takes them seriously and they do the Left more harm than good by being so off putting. Please, in the words I can't seem to find, explain why he's wrong.

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 484 points485 points  (10 children)

He's not wrong--college kids have always been dumb. But there's a difference today, and it's that the administrators and staff relinquished their responsibility to stamp out the worst excesses some time ago, with the result that silly opinions that ought to have been challenged and matured out of on campus were allowed to flourish in a "safe space."

These kids grew up and got jobs at Gawker and Buzzfeed still believing in the politics of the student union. Thus: we have a media that indulges in the same grievance-based, victimhood-obsessed, fact-free, feelings-driven garbage as you see on campuses.

Yet even this virtuous circle of moron reinforcement could be broken if faculty staff and college leaders were brave enough to say: "Don't be so fucking stupid. You are not oppressed. The 'safe space' you are demanding is called America; it's what enables you to speak your mind freely, however empty that mind might be. You are here to be challenged--get used to it. Now go back to class, or you'll be expelled."

In my view, any student demanding a trigger warning or safe space should be immediately expelled. They have demonstrated that they are incapable of completing the requirements of their degree.

Excellent answer Milo! Something needs to be done to give incentive for that behaviour. Currently I think the business of university sees incentive to what they are doing, but that may erode itself if people start seeing useless degrees for what they are.

Why are a disproportionate amount of feminists obese, blue haired bulldykes with abrasive and vitriolic personalities?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 210 points211 points  (6 children)

Feminism makes women ugly. It attracts ugly women in the first place, and then tells them to get even uglier. I don't want to keep shilling my columns here but I wrote on this a while back, I think. Even Lindy West agrees that women who don't confirm to traditional beauty standards (read: too lazy to work out and get their hair done) seek out progressive politics.

[–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Absolutely nailed it!! Especially like the work out and get their hair done comment. You could also use the same reply for the typical lesbian too.

[–]2rp_valiant 25 points26 points  (0 children)

the typical lesbian is a straight woman who either can't get laid or was burned by some guy (alpha widow or otherwise). More women than men are capable of changing up who they partner with - you see it with women dating transgenders too.

[–]The_fox_in_lion_skin 40 points41 points  (8 children)

Milo, thank you for coming here.

From my personal experience the U.S. military has become more feminine then ever before. Politicians led the charge against the military for having rape issues, but instead of stopping their after putting in preventive measures. They've toke it a step further and are trying to introduce women into special forces, the last true masculine space in the military and one with some of the toughest most self sacrificing jobs any one can have.

What are your opinions about this situation? & Is there any way to stop this change before the consequences have a lasting effect?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 86 points87 points  (7 children)

Women on the front lines is a disaster--it's a trendy experiment that the powers that be will have to reverse quickly, if they care at all about the lives of male soldiers. Or about winning wars.

[–]foldpak111 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Introduce a female to an all-male environment, the men shift from camaraderie to competition for the females attention. It's quite counterproductive but that's probably how the politicians like it. Let the retards run in circles while we make the big boy moves.

Hey Milo I saw you on JRE and you were phenomenal. I know it's a longshot, but if you enjoyed being on a podcast I'm sure the guys over on the PKA subreddit would love to have you on. I know I've seen the fans suggest them trying to get you on before, and I know I'd personally love to see you on.

A little about the show:

It's run by 3 hosts, Woodysgamertag, a youtuber that used to make gaming videos, and give life advice to the people that needed it. MurkaDurkah a guy that made youtube videos for fun back in the day that was beloved by a core following, and FPS Russia, the "professional russian" that makes videos of himself doing cool shit with guns and has amassed a following of nearly 6 million subscribers doing it.

It's a 4 hour show, however guests don't always stay for the full length, and aren't expected to. (It is a bonus though!)

They cover all different topics from current events to their personal experiences.

All 3 hosts are somewhat conservative, while being socially liberal, and they are more informed than the average bear so to speak.

If you want to check it out for yourself here is the most recent episode.

It's gonna be great Milo! When I knew a lot less I kept leaving you comments to check out Bernie Sanders. I'm so grateful I've finally gotten on board with Trump. Thanks for doing what you're doing! Exciting times ahead. I really appreciated what you said to Joe Rogan about not pushing alternative sexualities on kids just because they might seem eccentric. I personally don't believe in homosexuality. Thanks again! Love you Milo!

Milo, do you think the culture in silicon valley is a big threat to tainting the web? The bay area is full of leftist activists with a lot of time on their hands and seem strangely effective at enforcing consensus, as in the case of getting Mozilla's founder fired because he was pro-trad marriage.

And how do you factor in the temptation of cheap H1B labor to the various tech giants? What's going on here? Why are the tech giants seem always on board with the latest progressive trends?

It's going to be a real shame if a previous partner of yours comes out and claims you're mediocre in the sack. You currently occupy a place in our hearts as a hedonistic men's rights crusader with an enchanted feminist slaying excalibur-cock. Please don't end up being too good to be true because you're the closest thing us redpillers are ever getting to a real life Batman.

Batman, Milo. Don't ruin fucking Batman for us. ;)

[–]Endorsed Contributornyrp 34 points35 points  (4 children)

Hi, Milo. Thanks for everything. Proud to be one of your #5000.

I have so many possible questions, but will keep it relative Red Pill focused as that's where we are.

  1. Within the gay community, behind the scenes, how may gays are actually into the idea of getting married, raising (some other woman's) children? Following that, I know that you've said gay white men are being pushed towards the oppressor category, but is it also true that some gays (besides you) want out of the whole progressive LGBT schema, because that vision of being gay is not the way they perceive it?

  2. I am in RCIA, and becoming Catholic. I've been particularly interested in your rants against atheism. I respect the way you see your homosexuality as a burden. My parallel would be that I'm not gay, but I want to be Catholic, yet I love fucking many bitches without marrying them. So, no need to compare our respective missing of the mark regarding Catholic faith. But I am just curious, if it's not too personal, how you see yourself balancing the two, and furthermore, doing so in public, where if they don't hate you for being Catholic, they hate you for being a gay who's Catholic and not a church hater.

  3. You say you have Hollywood friends who are secretly conservative, pro-Trump, anti-PC, anti-feminist, etc. I have a conservative-oriented screenplay I'm shopping around of a hedonist exploring religion. Another one I'm writing that is a brilliant but subtle satire of feminists handing their country over to Islamists. When do you see the climate coming around that conservative artists can come out with stuff like this, and not another fucking Jim Haynes "Carol" or vehemently pro-abortion movies, like at least 3 that have come out in the last 18 months?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Hello #5000 elite.

  1. Yes, gays are natural cultural libertarians and my hunch is that the majority want out. I want the wholesale dissolution of the LGBT lobby. It's meaningless and irrelevant and most of its figureheads are working entirely against our interests.

  2. I answered this I think elsewhere today, so I'm going to point you there. Welcome to the best religion. https://www.reddit.com/r/TheRedPill/comments/3x8fxm/im_milo_yiannopoulos_ama/cy2fi4y

  3. "Another one I'm writing that is a brilliant but subtle satire" -- you sound like me! I'd love to read them. Most likely you'll struggle getting them produced, though.


[–]1RedDragon41 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Milo, I have a younger brother who is gay and thanks to your work we have much more common ground to talk and connect over than previously. What would you say is the best way to unite those in the gay community with the Red Pillers of society against the atrocities being committed and what do you see as the future for both?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 61 points62 points  (0 children)

A simple examination of how unfair the tax system, healthcare, academia and the media are to men will demonstrate that gay men and Red Pillers have all the same priorities--and all the same enemies.

[–]jheck21 20 points20 points [recovered]

Hi Milo, I love your work, but more importantly I love your hair.

I'm currently in college, and with college being a safe haven for progressives and feminists, I hear all the time about how traditional masculinity needs to go. They suggest men should strive to be a more beta-male/metrosexual type of guy since they claim traditional masculinity is damaging our society. What are your thoughts on the fight against traditional masculinity? Should men still strive to be physically and mentally strong, tough, and resilient in today's society? And why? I would be very interested to hear your take on this issue.

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 70 points71 points  (3 children)

Absolutely. The best response to this nonsense is to get a haircut, hit the gym, join a sports team and fuck all the hot girls.

Above all, they want you to be miserable. Guilt and unhappiness is feminist currency. So win, and be happy. It's the best revenge.

Your excellent taste in hair tells me you are over half way there already.

[–][deleted] 20 points21 points  (6 children)

Hello Milo, thank you for taking your time to answer questions. At my work place, we debate a lot to pass time, and a few days ago we came across gender equality. The women complained about "rape culture" but I didn't know how to defend myself. What are some simple things that I can say to them that will prove them wrong about rape culture? Thanks in advance

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 60 points61 points  (5 children)

  1. Objecting to the term "rape culture" doesn't mean you don't believe rape happens.
  2. College campuses are about the safest places for women to be.
  3. There is no "rape culture" in the west--we don't encourage rapists, we jail them.
  4. If there is a rape culture, it is in the Muslim world. Why don't feminists want to talk about that?

[–]Senior ContributorDemonspawn 32 points33 points  (4 children)

I would say that the only rape culture in the west is of men in prison. Rape is expected, and by significant portion of society seen as a "good thing"

[–]CptGoodnight 15 points15 points [recovered]


Thanks for all you're doing. I especially enjoyed your most recent debate and your closing remarks addressing men specifically. I think TRP sometimes misunderstands that Mens Issues advocates aren't trying to sway women, they're trying to sway men.

My question: what is TRP? Is it a somewhat toxic countermove to toxic feminism or is this the sexual strategy men should have been employing all along from a risk/reward analysis? How would you explain TRP to greater society?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 68 points69 points  (0 children)

TRP is a lab, and you are all scientists, cooking up the antidote to a fatal epidemic. My hat is off to you.

[–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa 21 points22 points  (11 children)

First of all, thank you Milo for taking the time to participate in this AMA. Reading your answers to a multitude of questions has been both enlightening and unsurprising, given your glowing track record.

Question: In your experience, why is the young men's societal views on a easily-perceivable RP principle like the prerequisite of attractiveness for sexual interest so... contradictory and conflicting?

Allow me to explain:

The concept of attractive people pair-bonding with other attractive people is nothing new. Even in most media facets, an attractive guy will usually be shown running off with some attractive woman. It's common in both in movies and TV shows.

And yet, at least in the cases of most young men, the notion that attraction can somehow be *compensated or substituted by words and wit has recently become the dominant go-to for any male/female interaction.

Now I realize pop culture is becoming self-aware to this fault. In the past few years, we've seen a drastic increase in said self-awareness of attraction compensatory behaviors when the term "friend-zoned" spiked in secular popularity.

But why then does that same society have such difficulties with coming to terms the failure of substituting attractiveness with words or accepting the ever-present proof that there is a prerequisite for physical attractiveness on the terms of sexually appealing to one's peers? With accepting that one can't simply "talk" sexual attraction into someone? (And this goes beyond PUA; there are tons of non-PUA/RP men who believe that wit, humor and intellect will garner sexual interest)

Is it out of some collective self-fulfilling prophecy? A collective misunderstanding of the root cause of past successes (she slept with him because of his appearance, not because he was "funny")?

The proof is all over the place and yet i you'll oft find them resort to bashing their attractive peers (dumb jock, his just an asshole, etc.) instead of taking the time/humility to look introspectively instead of playing the victim of circumstance or peer-intervention.

If the root cause was simply a matter of ignoring the evidence as a means to protect one's ego, I could accept this rationale, but only on a case-by-case (individualistic/personally-onset) level, but this viewpoint seems to span the majority of young men across various borders and cultures.


[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 52 points53 points  (9 children)

The contradiction you have identified arises from the difference between what women say they want and what they actually want.

[–]∞ Mod | RP Vanguardbsutansalt 16 points17 points  (5 children)

Funny how simple an idea that's self evident can be so inflammatory and contraversal.

[–]Senior ContributorNightwingTRP 23 points24 points  (3 children)

It's got to be controversial. If women's word can no longer be trusted, then it means we don't need to put any value on what they say - the logical conclusion is that women simply shouldn't have a voice in anything because that voice is both unreliable and irrational.

They don't want their voice taken away, so they'll fight this tooth and nail. They'll run every hamster rationalisation available to pretend their words always have worth. (Realistically, it's just down to us to decide whether their words have worth on a case by case basis.)

Hi Milo, congratulations on being fabulous.

I'm curious to know if you every got a response from Dr Emily Grossman after your article asking why she felt the need to cook up charges of online abuse?

In case you haven't seen it, she did a talk recently explaining why from her perspective she really believes she did get a torrent of abuse. It's possibly even more cringe worthy than her performance on sky. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Mbv4FfFlIk

Also - love your concept of quantum superstate feminism - I've put together a description of what I think you mean by the term and interested to know if I've missed anything. http://eyeisbloke.com/2015/12/12/for-the-uninitiated-quantum-superstate-feminism/

I dislike that no one has challenged me on the circumcision stuff yet!

[–]∞ Mod | RP Vanguardbsutansalt 60 points61 points  (6 children)

No real need to ask as you've been clear you like them cut for purely personal reasons. And you know what, you're free to have your preference.

That being said, from a purely men's rights perspective I think everyone can agree boys should be entitled to the same rights as girls in this subject. If guys want to get cut once they're older, then the should be allowed to. However, babies who don't have any say in the matter, regardless of gender, shouldn't be messed with.

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 48 points49 points  (2 children)

I would have to agree with this.

[–]juschillinn 17 points18 points  (0 children)

cutting part of a baby's dick off is fucking absurd come at me.

[–]yleGerm 8 points8 points [recovered]

I think it's fairly obvious that you see it as a non-issue subject to personal preference, and that's perfectly fine. However, you have said, in your debate with Rebecca Reid at the University of Bristol that,

"The human answer to this, the only real conclusion we can come to, when you set the jokes aside, is we shouldn't be doing it".

As a victim of a botched circumcision as a baby, I'm simply just glad you can acknowledge it as a human rights issue.

Could you see yourself advocating for an age barrier to circumcision?

[–]StraightGlueWater 16 points17 points  (1 child)


After hearing you on Joe Rogan's podcast, I got the impression that your homosexuality is based more on your attraction to the forbidden than it is based on your attraction to men. Curious if you think that's the case.

Beyond that, you seem very articulate and calm when you are speaking/debating- is that an inherent skill or something you learned?

Thanks for what you do, brother.

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 40 points41 points  (0 children)

I just don't get mad. I wasn't born with the "offence-taking" gene and I don't get scared or nervous. I'm afraid that's just something you have or you don't.

I am a natural contrarian so I am drawn to all things forbidden by nature, and yes that does extend to my sex life. I think I put it best here... http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/04/14/im-sooo-bored-of-being-gay/

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 161 points162 points  (11 children)

  1. Work out, look after yourself, get an education, get a good job. Become the sort of man you would look up to.
  2. There are plenty of great women out there; you just have to look a bit harder. Don't settle for a lunatic.
  3. Nothing bad happens when you tell losers, liars and feminists (but I repeat myself) to go fuck themselves.

I don't really have a specific question, but I'd really like to know how we could get more people to speak up on the mainstream media like you do. MRA Movement never took off the way it should've.

This isn't necessarily related to TRP but how did you become so eloquent and concise in your way of speaking? Before I started to become involved in the "TRP" scene and knew who any of the big figures were, I saw an interview of yours on youtube and was incredibly impressed with your ability to articulate your ideas so clearly. When you say things it is almost as though your response is pre-scripted in that you never stumble over your words or struggle to convey an idea. If I am really focusing I can speak in this way but it is not something I could do as seemingly effortlessly as you do. Any tips for improving speaking ability besides, of course, practicing talking to people?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 59 points60 points  (1 child)

Be you. Don't put on a special speaking voice. Don't try to sound like anyone else. Express yourself as you would to your best friend, and you'll fix 90% of bad speaking habits.

And yes, a lot of practice, so you know your material well, you are confident with dates and names and concepts and you are used to anticipating objections.

These days it only takes 5-6 words of an opponent speaking for me to figure out what their rejoinder is going to be, so I spend the remaining minute working out my reply.

Milo, long time fan and admirer here. (Well, I've been a fan since I saw you on that BBC Debate a few months ago, but it's all about context given your rapid rise in followers).

It's great to see somebody out there in the media standing up for common sense, I think that your rise in popularity can be attributed to your timing. The western world has been obsessed with political correctness and leftist nonsense for years, but I think it's only within the last 1 or 2 years that we've started to become submissive to acceptance, correctness and other forms of essential bullying.

My question to you is this, I've always wondered how you made your money, was it through venture capitalism and wise investing, pure profit from your previous websites and businesses or was it shameless inheritance?

My confidence in your ability is to save us from a social distopia will be unwavered by whatever answer you give.

My friends and I are looking forward to seeing you here in Dublin in the new year, and we would love to meet you after the debate/speech.

I prefer not to talk about my private financial affairs, but you can rest assured that no one can live like I do on a journalist's salary. So finish your college degrees and get proper jobs in engineering!

[–]ChrisWitherkay 28 points29 points  (5 children)

A few months ago you posted a tweet saying "Really the only qualification I ask for in my journalists is that they don't have a journalism degree" (https://twitter.com/Nero/status/634137972573650945)

What recommendations or tips would you give to someone wishing to go into writing as a hobby or as a profession?

*Additional question I just thought of. Do you feel many media outlets are still afraid of discussing mens issues in fear of backlash from particular groups?

I recently met you at #Milo100K but I didn't get the opportunity to ask you this then.

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 53 points54 points  (3 children)

Don't, unless you're independently wealthy.

I found myself reading and agreeing with a lot of the TRP ideas after getting sort of sick of hearing feminists complain about how hard it is to be a women.

Do you believe the reason behind the right-wing (racist) wave in all of Europe (and with #Trump2016 maybe also in America) is a result of the need to stay PC and calling anyone pointing out any statistics related to race/nationality is being called racist?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 64 points65 points  (2 children)

Good, decent people are sick of being called sexist, racist and bigoted when they know they're not. They are sick of political correctness and speech codes. They are sick of being lied to about gender, immigration, you name it.

The inevitable result is popularity for candidates like Trump. I, for one, am loving the spectacle.

[–]Destroya12 13 points14 points  (7 children)


As much as I love your work, you've said that your success is based on your inclusiveness, and willingness to embrace those who are different from you, ie gaming/nerd culture. Aren't you being counterproductive when you say that Pokemon or Star Wars fans are losers who should feel bad? Same thing with Internet atheists; you're alienating a segment of the audience when you've said that that's not what you're about.

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 44 points45 points  (5 children)

I credit my readers with the sensitivity, intelligence and sense of humour to recognise when I am playing with them.

There's a world of difference between affectionate trolling between comrades--taunting is how men bond, after all--and the hateful invective of the progressive Left. Don't you think?

[–]theoccot 19 points20 points  (10 children)

How soon are we going to see new material from you and Gavin McInnes? That would be great.

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 42 points43 points  (9 children)

I'll be in New York in February--hoping to do the show live then. So far we've only done Skype. Gavin's hilarious--one of the most naturally funny people I know.

[–]Zaelthor 23 points23 points [recovered]

Hi Milo, i've been following you for a little under a year now and have thoroughly enoyed watching you continue to baffle and outrage feminists.Thanks for doing the ama,it is always interesting to hear what you have to say and i thought that your final words during your recent university of bristol debate where brilliant and very relevant to us here.

I'm sure this is something that you hear a lot, i believe you have mentioned as much before, but thanks to you i no longer call mysely a liberal. I am a 20 year old going to uni in the uk so as far as most of my peers are concerned being a conservative is an obvious and dangerous moral failing, so it takes a lot to break out of that particular bubble, and i would like to thank you for that.

As for my quesion; I think there is a general sense with a lot of the current cases in the news that the progressives my have overplayed their hand somewhat.I think that they have been surviving on the goodwill of people who have not closely examined their claims, and why would they with every major media outlet parroting them for years now, as well as the terrible fear of being branded a rascist or a sexist. There has bever been any pleasing these people however and i am sure that they will eventually push too far and alienate the relative moderates that are required to be broadly on their side for them to continue to have the stranglehold on the media and on the education system that they do have. Do you think that they have pushed too far already? If not will they soon? It seems near unthinkable to challenge the base assumptions of feminism publicly without being branded a foul and hateful individual but do you think that this will still be the case in 5 or 10 years? Do you think the tide is turning, and if so, how quickly will things change?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 67 points68 points  (4 children)

There is no longer any space on the political Left for anyone who believes in:

  1. Gender equality (they prefer female chauvinism)
  2. Science (they talk a good game but cover up inconvenient findings)
  3. Freedom of speech (do I even need to explain?)

Well done for correctly identifying this.

As to your question: I agree. I think the tide is turning. I think you're about to see a wholesale abandonment of progressive values by the public. The truth is they've always been in the minority--read Christina Hoff Sommers on this topic. But it's getting even more pronounced now.

Amazing that fewer than 1 in 5 American women now calls herself a feminist. You've hit upon the reason why. Hopefully, people who believe in free speech, equality and fact-based discourse will stop voting for candidates and parties who don't.

Why did Breitbart throw Trump under the bus for the Muslim ban comment? Are you aware of what's going on in your country and indeed all over Europe (Rotherham rape scandal)?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 89 points90 points  (8 children)

One of the things people aren't used to seeing in this age of politically correct media conformity is publications that make space for dissenting voices. Breitbart does. We have 100 writers. You won't agree with the opinion of every one of them.

But I think our Trump coverage has been overwhelmingly enthusiastic--which of course pleases me, because he is awesome.

[–]343ewq 13 points14 points  (10 children)

Have you seen Reggie Yates's documentary extremeUK: Men at war yet? If so what are your thoughts on it?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 46 points47 points  (4 children)

I'm going to write about this at greater length, but I thought it was a pity it slid into the usual whinging about "harassment" and how "weird" the manosphere was, when it ought to have focused on the facts, studies, laws that men's rights advocates are complaining about. A programme ostensibly about the men's rights movement once again became all about feminist grievances.

It felt like a series of character assassinations rather than an attempt to understand why so many men are frustrated and checking out, acting out or otherwise expressing their disillusionment with society.

[–]Raymond_Cuttill 7 points8 points  (0 children)

The BBC is pro-feminist. There was never any intention to give MRAs a fair hearing or any kind of hearing. There's a part where you said something like gender relations are the worse they've been for a hundred years. You were then faded out and then there was a voiceover of Reggie saying "I'm not a feminist but even I find his views challenging". In other words ignore you. Now I'm guessing but I would bet that you then had a conversation about that point but he probably knew that the conversation would end up on the edit room floor.

I have a question. I'm planning on getting more active in MRA matters. I'm thinking of starting with a short article about UN women and their stats about sex trafficking; which are selective. Could you please suggest a good place or way to submit it? e..g. as an article somewhere or a piece to camera on YouTube or what?


[–]Solitary_Wolf 11 points12 points  (5 children)

Hi Milo, how long have you known about TRP and do you apply any of the same theory in your own relationships?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 42 points43 points  (4 children)

Sexual dynamics are different for gays. In fact, to be specific, they often mirror the 1950s household of Red Pill legend, with a dominant breadwinner and a passive homemaker who has a lot of time to stay looking good. Yet another thing we're better at... sorry guys!

[–]Alpha-Bromega 12 points13 points  (9 children)

Hello Milo,

Big fan of your writing. This is my question:

What is your opinion on the current glorification of transexuality? I listened to your JRE interview and I understand the problem that this issue presents to gender identity politics (if there is a female brain, then male/female differences are biological). How are we sure that it is not a mental disease, like schizophrenia? Moreover, shouldn't there be a stipulation that individuals that want hormone therapy should at least wait until they are adults. I've seen posts of people glorifying parents that give their children hormone therapy to justify their own narratives and beliefs and to seem "progressive" and get internet brownie points. Things that might be considered child endangerment and child abuse. Children don't know who they are and what they want, that's the role of a parent, to help guide their children during these stages of development. What are your thoughts?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 43 points44 points  (7 children)

It's sick. We're glorifying a brain disease. We'll look back in 50 years and wonder how we could ever have been so cruel.

[–]B-VOLLEYBALL-READY 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Hi Milo.

I just popped over here from KiA to ask... Are you planning to do any more #BIGMILO streams? That was absolutely fabulous.

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 10 points11 points  (1 child)


[–]UndecidedThrownaway 6 points7 points  (4 children)

Would I be doing any harm raising a son without a mother figure, like the MGTOW?

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Just my personal $0.02, but I think kids need a mom. It doesn't have to be their biological mom, though of course that's best.

[–]TRP VanguardJP_Whoregan 18 points19 points  (1 child)

I think when it comes to boys, mom should be the primary care-taker until about the age of 6 or 7. At that point, it's time for the boy to start passing dad wrenches in the garage, learning how to mow a lawn, and learning how to be a man in general.

This the problem we have with the current millenial generation of whiny, entitled, feminized, young men, and in some cases, serial killing school shooters.

All Men Must Have a Purpose, Even If That Purpose Is Becoming a Mass Murderer

Women can raise boys, but they cannot raise men. Single motherhood is perhaps the biggest travesty to be visited upon boys in the last 100 years.

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I can can get behind that.

[–]NeoNGANGSTA 28 points29 points  (6 children)

Milo, What is the current state of SJW stigma in the gaming indusrty, in your opinion? Are Devs and Publishers going to cave in or what exactly? Also is GamerGate winning this?

(PS I love you and your sacred hair <3)

Edit: Is there a way GamerGate (gamers) can help fight this cancer as of now? Example: Prioritize more ops and reinforce the notion of support for companies that stand up to this shit.

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 79 points80 points  (4 children)

Publishers and developers throw bones to the crazies by offering, say, playable female leads. But they know who their customers are. I believe in the power of the free market here.

I can't tell you too much about the conversations I've had with publishers and publishers' associations, but I'll put it this way: they are by and large decent and reasonable people who know their customers are also decent and reasonable people, and very, very few of them buy in to crackpot feminist complaints about their products.

Oh, and they hate the games press just as much as the rest of us.

Thank you for your judicious and wise assessment of my hair, which is the best hair.

[–]m1983 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Don't have any questions yet, but just came in to thank you for all you're doing Milo!

I've been sitting quietly all this time listening to the media slam men and all this pro-woman bullshit, in fear that if I speak up I'll get crushed by all these feminazis. It's great to finally have a voice and someone to fight back.. keep up the good work!

[–]Milo Yiannopoulosyiannopoulos_m[S] 65 points66 points  (3 children)

I'm lucky. I'm social justice-proof. And I'm having a lot of fun. So you never need to worry about me disappearing. Every time they try to get me fired, I get a promotion. Every time they try to ban me from a university, more people get to hear about me and more people read my work. Every time they come for me, my power grows.

There's one argument, at least, for never letting feminism die!
