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:

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?

Having a last name like that is cheating when it comes to domain names

Yiannopolous privilege, disgusting.

[–]2rp_valiant 25 points26 points  (1 child)

only because most Greeks can't afford a domain name.

Damn dude that's some scary indoctrination shit. What country is this in?

[–]kidchillin 37 points38 points  (0 children)

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

[–]kidchillin 22 points23 points  (6 children) 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.

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.

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!

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

Facts, and great hair.

[–]Boovs4life 51 points52 points  (2 children)

You do have great hair (no homo)

[–]KHJohan 48 points49 points  (0 children)

I think so too ( all of the homo)

When she said her own writing was "problematic" that was the fuckin icing on the cake.

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.

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 dismis
