Men's Rights

Oh, The Feminist Jimmies This Will Rustle

(self.TheRedPill)

submitted by TRP VanguardJP_Whoregan

https://privilegegrant.com

Venerated champion of young men, feminist provocateur, and, as all of the Old Guard are now proud to say, "Friend of The Red Pill", Milo Yiannopoulos, is taking the initiative to launch what he is calling the:

"Yiannopoulos Privilege Grant"

We are pleased to announce the creation of the Yiannopoulos Privilege Grant, a scholarship exclusively available to white men who wish to pursue their post-secondary education on equal footing with their female, queer and ethnic minority classmates.

I found this while listening to a Louder with Crowder podcast this morning, and I think it's a magnificent idea. For decades, there have been scholarships available to women, to blacks, to hispanics, to the disabled, to American Indians, and countless other victim groups that can acquire academic scholarships based on no fucking merit other than their protected class status and the fact they wrote a bullshit essay and mailed it in.

As Milo reminds us on the website, young white males, (the overwhelming majority of readers here at TRP, obviously), currently represent only 43% of all college graduates, and that figure is falling annually. I'd like to thank and congratulate Milo for taking such a courageous step, as he will no doubt face even more social ridicule, chastising, and probably legal challenges to this endeavor.

The secondary reason for posting this, obviously, is so that you young, dumb, and full of cum RP douche-bros are made aware of this, should you perhaps pursue the Privilege Grant if it comes to actual fruition. Hell, I may donate to it myself if it comes to maturity.

I mean, what better way to infuriate a fat, blue-haired, pasty-wearing, campus feminist, on your first day of university, than to approach them and tell them that you are receiving tuition grants from something called the "White Male Privilege Grant?" The entertainment to be had would be endless.

Go check it out and follow the Twitter; he's not accepting Grant requests yet, but will update as the project moves forward.

Happy Friday and have a good weekend, brothers.

Oh, Milo you magnificent faggot!

How do you combine rational logic and trolling all into one? NEVER FEAR! MILO WILL FIND A WAY!

I would bet money that TRP will end up funding several grants.

[–]Senior Endorsed ContributorCopperFox3c 137 points138 points  (0 children)

I like to think this his way of practicing a little Agree & Amplify on the Feminists/SJWs ...

[–]BigAl265 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Absolutely. I'll be more than happy to contribute.

[–]RedMoonAscendant 50 points51 points  (3 children)

Fuck yes. I want to give to that.

[–]occupythekitchen 9 points10 points  (5 children)

How many cis white males fund those grants for minority and women without then crediting them. I was born into the 1% I would rather help males than females since female gratitude is non existent. They just expect it, hell I as I white cis male would much prefer to see those 18 year old girls working in a strip club then giving them any aid

[–]getbackdownhere 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Why are you using "cis" as if it's actually a word?

[–]occupythekitchen 7 points8 points  (1 child)

To undermine and show how silly it is to be used and take it From sjws who think it offends US "cis" males

[–]Endorsed ContributorRedBigMan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Because he's recognized he's a cis white male shitlord of course because he took a course with a feminist professor. /s

[–]Orig_analUse_rname 27 points28 points  (31 children)

All admissions offices have to do is say they wont accept a student who attempts to use funds from this scholarship. I'm not adressing the merits of the topic at hand, but what do you think offices would do for a Hitler Scholarship or I-Hate-Blacks scholarship sponsored by the KKK? Schools do have an image to uphold PC or not.

[–]Senior ContributorNightwingTRP 143 points144 points  (23 children)

If that happens, it'll start discussion. Discussion is what Milo wants! He is deliberately provocative for this reason.

Why are we accepting black-only scholarships? Why are we accepting women-only scholarships? Yet we can't accept a white-male-only scholarship? That is discrimination against white men.

The logic works and the grievance is valid. This is how Milo will fight the politics, and he will get supporters who believe in classical liberalism. I take your point that you believe none of this will make a difference and he'll just get shouted down to maintain the narrative... but the thing is, for Milo to fight the system like this... he's coming from the starting assumption that he can change things. - And I'm starting to think his assumption might be fair. I'm not saying it'll be easy, but it could be possible because he's written about the rise of the cultural libertarians. I don't know about the US... but in the UK, privately, an increasing number of the population (men and women) are getting more and more pissed off at the blatant anti-white sentiment everywhere, less so about the anti-male sentiment but many blokes have noticed it.

This is the culture whose national dish is Chicken Tikka Masala. Seriously, most Brits don't give a shit what colour you are, but they are getting tired of being put down for being white. Milo knows this... and you only have to look at his rise to fame to see that people are starting to feel like they can actually say something about it.

[–]IDefyAxioms 11 points12 points  (9 children)

Why are we accepting women-only scholarships? Yet we can't accept a white-male-only scholarship? That is discrimination against white men.

Sure, except that SJWs will simply spout the tried-and-true "lol DAE reverse racism" rhetoric to dismiss the issue, shaming white males for "trying to equate their lives to the struggle of oppressed classes."

[–]Senior ContributorNightwingTRP 35 points36 points  (8 children)

Milo is not targeting them. He couldn't give a shit what retards think. He's too busy picking fluff off his blazer, darling. If anything, said retards only strengthen his position with rational, intelligent people.

He wants discussion and he'll get discussion when the idiots respond with that sort of nonsense. Then when he exposes the nonsense, he gets new allies in the form of more rational, intelligent people. This is how his following grows. HE WANTS SJWs TO REACT AND DISMISS HIM WITH THEIR RETARD LINES.

This is why he's winning. He is the voice for a voiceless majority and every time they try to smack him down he just gets more popular as a result. As I alluded to before... people may be keeping their heads down as a result of political correctness, but it doesn't mean they're not pissed off. Milo feeds from that.

[–]Sdom1 14 points15 points  (5 children)

He is the voice for a voiceless majority and every time they try to smack him down he just gets more popular as a result.

It sounds like someone else, can't think of whom. I think he's running for office in 2016.

[–]1mojo_juju 7 points8 points  (2 children)

...rhymes with "Pump & Dump"

...starts with "TR" ends with "P"

what is that name...

[–]Sdom1 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That's awesome. Or should I say "Amazing" or "Yooge."

[–]CQC3 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You mean Trump? Pretty sure he's got his own blog at heartiste.wordpress

[–]human_bean_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Most rational and intelligent people are still emotionally captured by the surrounding vaginasphere.

[–]Stuperishstoner 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Agreed. It fundamentally relies on his composure. If he sticks to it and continues to push on the matter he may succeed, especially as more people see him get away with speaking his mind. If he compromises, apologises or in anyway lose his composure it's over.

[–]foldpak111 24 points25 points  (6 children)

He's taking the same route as Ghandi. He's fighting for what he believes in and he won't stop until he accomplishes his mission, or dies trying. That drive can very well change things. In time, of course. Change is slow, but requires intense drive.

[–]human_bean_ 15 points16 points  (1 child)

My take on it is that he's just found a niche that he can make some money and fame out of. Nothing wrong with that. I just find it strange that redpillers elevate him as some sort of a hero figure. Sure, he's effective. Sure, it's a win-win situation. Doesn't mean that his motivations are altruistic in any way.

[–]Nebulose11 6 points7 points  (0 children)

A paid hero is the only kind. Unpaid heroes get hungry.

[–]Ojisan1 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Main difference between him an Gandhi, I can't see Milo shaving his head and making his own clothes. But he's doing good work in his own fabulous way.

[–]harami_number1 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Its Gandhi. Seriously why do so many white people have this typo? Almost every western person i read on the internet types this

[–]get_real_quick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Because the British anglicized his name to be pronounced like gann-dee, not gaan-thee, and it's that pronunciation that was proliferated throughout the west. We are at heart fairly phonetic creatures

[–][deleted] -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

You heard it here first, Milo Yiannopolous (If I spelled it wrong fuck it he's admitted he spells his own name wrong) is the Ghandi of our generation!

[–]TheSelfGoverned 6 points7 points  (1 child)

We have the privilege of being the only group legally and openly discriminated against.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Asians are rapidly joining that rank as well. In fact when it comes to getting into college they are even worse off.

[–]MoneyStatusLooks 5 points5 points [recovered]

an increasing number of the population (men and women) are getting more and more pissed off at the blatant anti-white sentiment everywhere, less so about the anti-male sentiment but many blokes have noticed it.

Totally agree with the UK comments. Most people I know are getting fed up of basically anyone who is non white being put on a social pedestal. It's like the victim olympics about who it is okay to critisize.

If you were a black, transgender midget and went on a killing spree, people on the left would condone it because they have been oppressed by society. lol.

The only people who are encouraging "multi culturalism" are the cunty fake liberal/feminist types, who don't believe in equality whatsoever. Multiculturalism sure, but true equality first.

[–]Senior ContributorNightwingTRP 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Totally agree with the UK comments. Most people I know are getting fed up of basically anyone who is non white being put on a social pedestal.

The thing which I find most heartening about this, is that this includes plenty of people from the "minorities." They're not interested in special treatment because most of their families have a built a life here from their own blood, sweat and tears. They really have worked hard to earn their respected place in society. They see all the anti-white sentiment and (since the majority of UK is white) they're basically seeing something which is anti-my-friends. And it's pissing them off just as much as anybody Caucasian. It gives me faith that this social justice idiocy will eventually be overcome.

man, this is because you let all the Muslims into the uk and they are the flavor of the month right now. they are the " minority victims"

[–]soulure 6 points7 points  (3 children)

The recipient will likely remain anonymous to avoid further discrimination.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (2 children)

If I were to receive it, and as a straight white male that is not financially secure enough to pay my way through college I could really use it, I would make it very well known that I received this grant. Because I want it to spark debate, and I would love for a college to decline me based on that, or kick me out for my views. I'd be perfectly willing to be that martyr, because it would mean that I did something with my life to have a positive effect on something I believe in.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Fersher.

I would hope to get polo shirts with their logo and a hoody with their branding on it.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would find a fat girl with blue hair with betas circling her and tell her loud and proud that I was there on the White Privilege Scholarship.

[–]occupythekitchen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Image or not they will be hit hard by the NCAA if they will accept women and minority scholarships but not white males scholarships if they are underrepresented in campus

[–]1grubek 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Any college will think twice before refusing money.

[–]Endorsed ContributorRedBigMan 5 points6 points  (1 child)

He isn't the only one who's probably thought of this.

If something like winning the lottery or coming up with the next 'Google' or 'Microsoft' level idea happened I would do the same with some of the winnings.

United Caucasian College Fund...

Or you know make a scholarship that requires the candidates need to deadlift at least 150kg (that'd basically rule out almost all women).

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Haha fuck yeah.

Don't make it gender based but merit based.

  1. Must be able to deadlift 150kg.

  2. Must be able to write your name in the snow with urine.

  3. Must be a victim of sunburn at some point in your life.

[–]marplaneit 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I'm south american, and I will fund this schollarship once I graduated as doctor.

[–]ItsCold_ItsCold 10 points11 points  (17 children)

I would bet money that TRP will end up funding several grants.

LOL. That may just prove to be the final straw for the SJW reddit admins. I'm not saying don't do this, but I wouldn't be surprised if it directly results in the banning of TRP. They're barely tolerating (if you can call it that) our existence right now.

EDIT: typo

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (6 children)

You make it sound like they have their finger hovering over the ban button.

[–]Corndog_Enthusiast 4 points5 points  (3 children)

They have lots of pressure on them by reddit idiots to go ahead and ban this sub. I wouldn't be surprised if they've been considering doing it.

[–]occupythekitchen 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Honestly they can't decipher who us karma whoring anti rp or who is genuine. We are safe bc of that predicament.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

More like their experiment with censorship with FatPeopleHate went so terribly when that was arguably similar to TRP in that the people that agree love it, and the people that don't absolutely hate it. But then when they banned it even the people that hated it sided with them. Even fat people sided with them, and while I doubt any SJW's would side with TRP if it were banned there are so many people that are somewhere in the middle it would definitely create enough outrage to make them take another serious hit in their public image that they just cant afford.

[–]Ali_knows 0 points1 point  (9 children)

Why the fuck would this sub be banned!? Is it an hate subreddit!? I'm sure there are many subs where women gather and say that men suck. I'm serious, if you could take some time to elaborate I would greatly appreciate!

[–]RedMoonAscendant 21 points22 points  (1 child)

The quick summary is "When you're used to privilege, equality feels like oppression."

When SJW's literally say white men should die, and they need to be hurt so bad they cry, and this is fine, and you say ANYTHING to contradict what they're saying, you are accused of hate speech.

And, for whatever reason, the current political climate of The West allows this accusation to stand unchallenged.

So yes, TheRedPill is hate speech, by definition.

The thing is, we're working hard (well, some of us*) to get things back on track, because when society defines normal human behaviour as criminal, and normal human conversation as hate speech, that society goes into decline.

(*) Others of us just want to enjoy the decline. I don't count myself among them.

[–]Ali_knows 0 points1 point  (0 children)

ok I like how you formulate things, thank you for the post mate.

[–]StupidButSerious 0 points1 point  (5 children)

What's up lately with everyone using "an" in front of a word starting with a consonant?

[–]Ali_knows 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I thought we could say both since the ''h'' is silent... I'm not a native english speaker...

[–]StupidButSerious 1 point2 points  (2 children)

No worries, just keep improving yourself and when in doubt, ask around or google it.

The "h" of "hate" is not actually silent. The silent "h" words are "honor" "hour" "honest" "heir", for those using "an" is appropriate since the following letter is a vowel and the h is ignored.

Not a fan on correcting words but the an/a their/they're than/then are the cases which annoy me since they are pure mistakes showing a lack of basic knowledge and just uneducated. I don't care as much on other subreddits like pics/funny but here I appreciate that people are educated.

[–]Ali_knows 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Well I'm genuinely happy that you have corrected me sir, I have learned something new today thanks to you! I don't usually make mistakes with their/there/they're so I'm not that bad I guess.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Its all good bro. No one would grammar nazi you if they knew you were ESL.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It is considered a hate forum by manginas and feminists everywhere.

Its pretty common that I make a comment on some other subreddit and some mangina inevitably has to be like, "Don't listen to Derbi50! He posts to hate subs!" hoping for a pat on the head from the other masturbation aficionados.

[–]DeShot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh, Milo you magnificent faggot!

Haha that he is. I would definitely contribute.

[–]Endorsed ContributorInvalidity 201 points202 points  (64 children)

Interesting play to rustle feathers.

As an Asian guy, it pisses me off that women and blacks/hispanics have higher acceptance rates on the basis of being "underprivileged". There is a huge disparity now in terms of the population in colleges now, what with more females being accepted than males.

And why the fuck should I care if somebody's ancestors had a hard time in life? Colleges should be effectively looking at the best possible candidates. If that means that only a handful of minorities are accepted, great. That means that they are the best candidates, regardless of gender/race.

[–]nodoxsavefreespeech 48 points48 points [recovered]

Amen, brother. Put in the work? Perform well? You should be rewarded for this. How this is not the case astounds me. It's almost like society wants itself to fail (or just succumb to the shit-test that is feminism).

[–]TRP VanguardJP_Whoregan[S] 52 points53 points  (2 children)

Society doesn't necessarily want society to fail, they just want society to succeed with the people they want it to succeed with. However, they would rather society fails than to watch it succeed on the backs of middle class white men.

[–]Endorsed ContributorInvalidity 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Perfect example of crab mentality. When you prioritize the needs to the 'victims', the ones who play out that role tend to want to bring everyone down to their level.

[–]DiscerningDuck 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think that the black knight globalist rulers want western society to fail by creating a hopelessly dependant, valueless, and impotent majority, so that when they engineer the collapse, they can easily replace it with their ideal arrangement of society, of which will (undoubtedly to me) communist in nature.

[–]TRP VanguardCyralea 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Modern progressivism is self-destructive. Which given its name is rather ironic.

[–]systemshock869 8 points8 points [recovered]

Marxism in this case was specifically designed to cripple the west using feel good morals and ideals that appeal to the masses, are impossible to actualize, and are hard to argue against without the indoctrinated idiots thinking you're a terrible person and lashing out at you with righteous indignation.

[–]tb87670 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Worded properly on why the disease that is leftist politics still persists. Job well done.

[–]UndecidedThrownaway 75 points76 points  (12 children)

Asians get it bad, all my fucking insanely smart and talented friends keep getting rejected from their top schools and I can only imagine it's a direct result of the quotas schools are trying to meet... Really sad to see bright minds turned away, why aren't universities a meritocracy.

[–]antariusz 41 points42 points  (0 children)

There was a lot of uproar about black actors not getting any recent Oscar wins, despite overall being more likely to receive an award than any other group based upon population...

But yet there is no outcry from the asian population who are the actual victims of discrimination that blacks are campaigning and even boycotting the event for.

This was on the front page of reddit just yesterday. I'm sure I'm not the only one that recognized the hypocrisy.

[–]TRP VanguardJP_Whoregan[S] 68 points69 points  (5 children)

Because universities are dominated by left-thinking liberals, and if there's one thing liberals do not agree with, it's meritocracy.

[–][deleted] 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Because they all picked their degrees based on their ineptitude for math.

[–]Endorsed ContributorRedBigMan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

LOL That's a good one.

Perhaps it may be possible to start an actual brick and mortar red pill university at some point... We'd just not get federal funding but we could tell all those SJWs to take a fucking hike.

[–]theDarkAngle -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I prefer to call those people "progressives", and people like Bill Maher, Sam Harris, and large chunks of gamergate, MRA's, etc "liberals". The split is real, and people tend to self-identify correctly under that terminology without even knowing it.

It also sort of just makes sense: Progressives are "progressing" towards some sort of perfect diversity (or something, I don't really get it but I know its social engineering of some sort), and believe that groups have agency and rights. Liberals emphasize the liberty of individuals... they just have a broader definition of liberty than right-leaning conservatives and libertarians, that seems to include basic forms of human well-being. It's the "you are not free to do X if you are not able to do X argument".

[–]marplaneit 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I am argentinian and Here education is Free I wonder if I would be able to start a community to bring guys that are unable to pay for college, to here.

[–]GeminiEngine 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Try it. Please! Seriously. It would be a nice reality check for many Americans. Many of "us" have this belief that "western civilization is the best, so we have to help everyone else". It would be nice to have a worthwhile argument for proof. People here don't care about stats or numbers, they believe that we are better because we send "help".

[–]foldpak111 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Which is why the average college student is so. damn. stupid.

[–]scairdycat 1 points1 points [recovered]

The lawsuit cites a 2009 study by Princeton sociologists that concluded that while the average Asian American applicant needed a much higher 1460 SAT score to be admitted, a white student with similar GPA and other qualifications only needed a score of 1320, while blacks needed 1010 and Hispanics 1190.

[–]UndecidedThrownaway 1 point2 points  (0 children)

see I honestly didn't have any stats to back up my claim, just based my claims off of what I've experienced, but thank you for providing credible evidence.

[–]RPwhitefrost 52 points53 points  (18 children)

Asians get screwed more than anyone. Whites get hurt by a lot of college admissions policies, but Asian males really get fucked. Many of my friends at school are Asians, all incredibly smart, most of them math whizzes and technical geniuses, and it's a shame they all got rejected by top schools.

And to your second paragraph, I agree 100%. It should all be about merit, nothing more. But let's at least look at how ridiculous their bitching and moaning is. These people weren't slaves; their parents weren't slaves; their grandparents weren't slaves; nor were their great grandparents slaves, and assuming they're my age (current college student) or younger, then I doubt their great-great grandparents or great-great-great grandparents were either.

Everyone has ancestors that were enslaved at some point or another. Hell, I'm part Slovakian, part Russian, and part Irish (among many other things, however, I'd say the Italian, French, English, and Germans were the enslavers if anything lol). All three of those groups were enslaved at one point in their history. The Slavs, including Slovaks and Russians, were enslaved for more than a millennia by Europeans, from Roman times until the fall of Constantinople (and enslaved afterwards by Muslim Turks). 100,000 Irishmen were enslaved by the English between 1652 and 1657 and sent to die in colonial Virginia and Maryland (where the average lifespan upon arrival was only 5 years at the time). For blacks to complain that they were enslaved and that they deserve special treatment is to deny the fact that every different type of people has been enslaved at some point or another in history, for some reason or other, and not one of those groups received any help. And most of them are doing just fine today.

[–]Endorsed ContributorInvalidity 9 points10 points  (7 children)

As much as I'd like to see more Asian males do better, a lot of them are trapped by the way they were raised. I would have gone down the same path if I didn't have more common sense.

It sucks for many Asian males, but they don't have to continue living the way they do. They choose to live the way that they do even though they already know that it doesn't make any sense. I don't have sympathy for those decisions.

And quite honestly, this isn't relegated to just Asians either, it's for men of ALL races.

[–]RPwhitefrost 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Again, I agree with you on all points. I think it definitely affects Asian men more due to their culture. I can't say for certain as an outside observer, but it's just something I've noticed. One of my closer friends since I've started college is a young male Filipino (born and raised in the Philippines, too). He holds a lot of RP beliefs, but is far too BP to act on them. His mother and the chick he's had a crush on for years (but really, every woman in his life) have him by the balls. He wonders why he always gets friend zoned. I've tried to introduce him to the pill because I was a lot like him, albeit not as bad, before I woke up. Yet, he won't listen to me.

[–]Endorsed ContributorInvalidity 6 points7 points  (1 child)

It's not your responsibility to help him. Many people believe we have to actively intervene in people's lives to help them change their lives around, (for example, drug interventions). But really, if people want to change, they will change. If they don't show a desire to change, they must hit rock bottom before anything happens.

Most people that hit their lowest points tend to kill themselves, but if that's the outcome, that's the best you can do... apart from living a successful life. One of the most effective methods I've seen in terms of getting people to realize things is to live the good life, and let them see that it is possible.

[–]theDarkAngle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What are you referring to? What way do asian males live? I'm homestly in the dark here.

[–]becredible 0 points1 point  (2 children)

What the fuck are you talking about? If an Asian male and a White male apply to a school with equal qualifications, the White male will get the spot almost every time. Same for medical school admissions, Asian males get fucked more than anyone. Oftentimes, better qualified Asians will lose the spot to less qualified Whites.

This has nothing to do with how Asians choose to live, but everything to do with merit not being rewarded due to bullshit quotas and feels.

[–]Endorsed ContributorInvalidity 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Which is why they must make the system work for them, instead of having them play right into the system.

Yes, the system is bullshit. Is it going away any time soon? No. Frankly speaking, if he is not at the top in terms of academics, he should reconsider and pursue an alternative means of finding success. The problem is that most Asian households preach a tried and true system of the past, which is to focus on one's studies and advance through the educational system. But seeing as how the system has placed obstacles for many Asian males, it may simply not be the preferable choice.

[–]becredible 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But isn't exploring other routes because of the quotas playing into the system? The system wants less Asians in school so Asians go with the system and exclude themselves from a route they were originally interested in (and could outperform others in)?

[–]occupythekitchen 0 points1 point  (4 children)

As an Italian German sorry but I don't think you need to hear that. That's our main difference to them we'll work to ameliorate our lifes not spend a century lamenting our past.

[–]RPwhitefrost 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Were you apologizing (partly joking, I know) because I said Italians and Germans were more enslavers than not? Hahaha, well, like I said, there's no reason anyone should apologize for the past that they had no part in, as you said in the post. And besides, idc. I'm more Italian than anything else (3/8) and part German, too. The other ethnicities I had mentioned in my post as being slavers were the other countries where my family had come from.

[–]occupythekitchen 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I got you I was just being playful you didn't come across as a victim as most black people, women, and "minorities" in general try to. By your attitude I am sure you've made this life your bitch instead of becoming another of life's bitch, keep rocking on brother

Edit: I'm a quarter Portuguese and I hate it those fuckers were the primary suppliers of slaves to the Americas. I have so many black people that share my grandma's last name Gaspar/Oliveira and they tell me we have family relation and I'm just like yeah cousin but in the back of my mind I know the reality is my great great grandpa owned hia

[–]RPwhitefrost 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Alright, cool, you too hahaha. I'm trying to make this life my bitch. Thanks to this sub, I woke up and have been able to turn things around big time. I try not to blame anyone but myself for my shortcomings because I can only control my own actions.

Thanks for the kind words man. Good luck to you in all you do.

[–]occupythekitchen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's what it's about not being a victim but knowing your life is a consequence of your actions

[–]theDarkAngle 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Honestly, I actually do think blacks have a special history and deserve some forms of special treatment. It's not just slavery; Jim Crowe, racist policies such as red-lining, funding schools through property taxes (thus decreasing funding in poorer areas), etc. There are still remnants of these policies in effect, but even if not, 2 or 3 generations removed is not nearly enough to stamp out the legacy of violence, forced illiteracy, and community disillusionment.

That said, affirmative action is NOT a good solution. Because by 18 years old, its really too late. What would be better is more community outreach and investment to get kids access to better preschool and K-12 education.

And honestly, manosphere ideas to get fathers back in the home would go a long way. All studies show that children with the biological father in the home are far safer, smarter, and healthier, regardless of the socioeconomic backgrounds involved. And regardless of whether the mother is even present.

Because, like I always say: mothers nurture, but fathers teach.

The incentives are so messed up. Women in poorer communities are almost better off having children with multiple partners and remaining single mothers because:

1) Benefits are based on households instead of individuals.

2) They can collect the max child support amount from 2-3 different fathers rather than just one, provided the men don't have other child support arrangements. Effectively multiplies their support.

I would prefer that the child support system be ended altogether; adults should be expected to choose partners who will invest their time/money willingly, without coercion. And all means-tested welfare programs should be replaced by something like Basic Income, where govt benefits are flat regardless of your earnings or how many children you have.

[–]RPwhitefrost 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I agree with a lot of what you said; however, I believe that we can improve black, urban communities in ways without showing special treatment. Our whole education system is fucked, and that needs to be totally reformed (I would talk about it, but that'd take forever; I'll just say that I think we need something similar to Europeans trade/college track system). Same for our tax system. I support the FairTax which would abolish all federal taxes, and replace it with a 30% (or 23% of the total purchase cost) sales tax. However, to prevent it from being regressive, each household receives a rebate (prebate) at the start of every month. It's hard for me to articulate this part for some reason, but essentially the prebate is to ensure that someone spending exactly at the poverty line would have a 0% tax rate. So essentially the monthly prebate is 30% of the poverty rate divided by twelve. The prebate is essentially the same for each person, only adjusted for the size of the household. So every single person regardless of income would receive the same rebate regardless of income, and any family of four would also receive the same rebate, regardless of income. Everyone pays the same rate, everyone gets the same rebate (at least proportionally), and yet it's still progressive on consumption. Also, only new goods and services are taxed, nothing used, or nothing that has been produced and taxed already before. That would also help low income communities. And I fully agree with getting rid of property taxes. They're the worst type of taxes.

[–]theDarkAngle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I could get behind the fair tax if it resulted in a negative net tax rather than a 0% rate for individuals at or below the poverty line, with at least subsistence level benefit. I am utterly convinced that mass unemployment is permanent and will only grow, just based on the level of automation technology. A negative income tax or a basic income become necessary under these conditions.

A guaranteed income gives people the freedom to take chances and start small businesses or tinker in their garage or work as freelancers or pursue hobbies or even volunteer. Wages would go up for those who prefer a "normal" job without ever fiddling with the minimum wage, simply because the worker pool will shrink somewhat, and work-seekers will not be so desperate, giving them a stronger bargaining position.

Yes, there will be some lazy farts, but of course we already have those, and worse, they're incentivized to stay that way ( in many cases, making money = lose your benefits). And more than that, I think with each passing year there are going to be more and more unemployable people, even if they all got the best education money can buy.

[–]1mojo_juju 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Pretty sure Irish indentured servants didn't even have school and lived under racist policies.

Same for Roman, Egyptian, Germanic, Mainland African, Khmer, Native American, Pre-Colombian, Pre-historic slaves... Pretty sure those were also multi-generational in some cases.

[–]RPwhitefrost 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The Irish were actually even slaves at one point, not even indentured servants. Following the English Civil War, Cromwell rounded them all up, confiscated 2.5 million acres of their land, and sent the Irish off to VA and MD.

[–]199639 18 points19 points  (6 children)

I heard that in order to have the same odds of acceptance to the UC system, Asian-americans had to have on average 160 points higher SAT.

But it's not racism, stop complaining. We're just not accepting students because of their skin color.

[–]Endorsed ContributorInvalidity 11 points12 points  (4 children)

Haha ain't that the truth. Few people realize it, but the SATs were given a new format to "equalize" the disparity in scores between boys and girls. Instead of having math and English scores evenly distributed, they added in an entire essay portion and removed the analogies portion of the verbal test.

So they ultimately skewed it in favor of language. We know that girls are better at reading and language than boys, than they are math. But how does that make any sense to a logical person? Take an even test, and skew it, so that we get more girls into college.

The whole thing is a sham and not based on meritocracy at all.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Do you have a source for any of that? MY understanding is that the SAT was originally devised to sort of equalize men and women who took it - IE, the world's smartest man and the world's smartest woman should both get the same score taking the SAT.

[–]Endorsed ContributorInvalidity 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I can't find the link to an old article that highlighted the disparities in scores between men and women. But this article does point out that the SAT was in some degree more beneficial to women.

Link

Basically, males outscore females by a large margin of points on the math portions. Females outscore males on the verbal portion by a much smaller margin.

The newest version of the SAT removes penalties for making guesses. It used to dock 1/4 of a point for wrong answers... hence, it discouraged test takers from guessing wildly. Though this is seemingly fair (to subtract points for guesses), on average, when males make guesses, they get them right more often than not. Hence, they benefited from guessing. Females are much less likely to take that chance.

[–]Endorsed ContributorRedBigMan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yep risk vs reward... guys will risk that 1/4 point to get a 1... I it's multiple choice with 4-5 answers you can usually intuitively pick from 2-3 by eliminating obvious wrong answers and improve your overall odds because for every 2 wrong you get (-1/2)) you get 1 right (+1).

Male's are the risk taking gender after all.

[–]Anthorjyeah -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I agreed with most of this thread; until your post. Theres no way to say that girls and boys have undeniably different advantages in math and language/reading. I definitely agree a lot of the college admissions process is arbitrary and a sham, but SATs are pretty standardized

[–]alphbux 7 points8 points  (5 children)

If they were really genuinely interested in helping out someone from a disadvantaged group, they would fund programs to bring them up to the standards for entry and support them.

However the lowering of standards is easy and makes institutions look progressive but requires little work or investment on their part.

[–]Endorsed ContributorInvalidity 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Make no mistake, there have been proactive efforts to fund programs for many disadvantaged minorities. But they fail. Why? It's not the programs that are failing these children, the children are failing the programs.

If the children are raised in shitty situations, they will be lifelong failures.

One of my friends is Hispanic and he was raised in a poor family. He never let that shit get him down though, and he was the first of his family to ever get into a university. In spite of his substandard socioeconomic start in life, he kept his shit together and made it through.

Why? Because his family had good values and maintained those values through out. The other kids failing out there? Their families have piss poor values and would rather whine about not getting hand outs. Fuck that shit.

[–]RPwhitefrost 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I've learned recently that people from shitty situations don't want help a lot of the time. I go to school in one of the poorest and most dangerous cities in America. It's disgusting, but the university is like a little bubble neighborhood where it's really nice. Anyway, my one class is on the development of the region, and we were talking yesterday about how part of the class is civic engagement, but the residents of the city hate us. They hate that we go to school in their shithole of a city and try to help them because they want us to leave them alone. They think we are the problem despite the fact that 45% of the students do charity work in the city.

Long discussion short, I realized that a lot of these people are content with the lives they live. Or that they find a way to blame other people for their problems. The worst was listening to the SJWs and city residents in the class try to justify it saying that we "middle class white folk" just don't understand them, and shouldn't try to mix. Well then, if we shouldn't mix, then the people from the city should stop taking all of our tax dollars, and stop bringing their drugs to towns like mine three miles away.

[–]alphbux 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh I agree, I was just pointing out how piss weak it is to just lower the standards rather than trying to do some real hard work to tackle the problem. These "progressive" institutions are really just paying lip service rather than getting their hands dirty.

Programs like the ones you mentioned should be sink or swim IMO.

[–]garlicextract 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Colleges should be effectively looking at the best possible candidates. If that means that only a handful of minorities are accepted, great. That means that they are the best candidates, regardless of gender/race.

Heh, well if this were actually the case, the Ivy Leagues would be around 50% asian

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Besides shit like crew and lacrosse yeah they are.

[–]pilledwillingly 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As I've said before - if you accept a higher number of candidates from minority groups, you're effectively hurting those minority groups by putting them in direct competition with those that scored better. You end up with 50 places, say 40 being filled by white guys, 2 being filled by minorities who put the hard work in and scored among the top 50, and you fill the other 8 slots in with minorities that were somewhere in the top 1000 candidates.

Now you've got black candidates ranked 253, 324, 536 etc working at the same level as the white guys ranked <40, who is going to perform better, who is going to make the two from their race that actually scored well look bad? Who is going to Fall off the firetruck on their first day and get promoted to an office job?

[–]fakenate1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Colleges should be effectively looking at the best possible candidates.

colleges actually play an interesting game when accepting students. If colleges only actually wanted the best students, most colleges would never have students.

Let's pretend there are 10 colleges in the country and they each seat 10 people. There are 100 seats available for students.

If colleges only went after the top 10 students, they would only admit those people, Right? So... Assuming all the students in the nation apply to all ten colleges, only 10 acceptance letters will go out. Obliviously the top ten students will choose the university that has the best reputation... So the 9 other colleges in the nation will have admitted zero students.

Now there are things like waiting lists. But a university wants to be sure of their revenue in the fall... So some colleges aren't going to go after the best students all the time because of game theory. Some colleges will admit students who are ranked 101 and below because they know for sure that those students will not be admitted to better programs.

[–]HoundDogs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I graduated over 15 years ago. I was not raised in a particularly wealthy household but we got by. I was a top tier athlete at my school and was easily in the top 10% of my graduating class with plenty of extracurriculars. I remember going down the list of potential scholarships to help pay for what my sports scholarship did not. They were ALL for women and minorities. I was told, in no uncertain terms, that I may as well not apply or even look for scholarships because id be wasting my time.

Turns out they were right and I learned it the hard way. One particular girl at my school who had very good grades went around and swallowed up all of the scholarships...16 different scholarships awarding over $25k in total. She went to school and got drunk every day and basically pissed it all away and flunked out after one semester. She's now a part time dog trainer.

Hard not to be bitter.

[–]dickinlipss 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You are discriminated more than the whites complaining on here.

[–]GrandmasterHurricane 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You're just dumbass. Those programs are there to help those in need. It also does matter how their ancestors were treated because the effects can still be seen today. Ghettos are a preduct of racist government officials who couldn't stand the fact that what used to be subhuman is now legally and globally recognised as equal to the whites. It stung their cold and black hearts, so they found ways to introduce things to the black community that would send it downhill. Things such as weapons and drugs.

You have to ask yourself how an underprivileged minority group of people managed to magically get large access to guns and controlled substances. Even post slavery, blacks didn't get access to many things and were kept separate from whites, denied employment because of racist employers, treated unfairly in courts, hung from trees and attacked without cause other than the color of their skin. Think about the black man looking for sustainable work when he has a wife and 2 kids but he can't make ends meet because of his skin color, now think of the poverty they had to face, then realize that it was all part of the plan initially to starve a people of success and progress and lead them to the shores of desperation where they are introduced to subtabces to numb the pain an weapons to fight amongst themselves. Then think of the decline of their people, as the whites themselves get access to opportunities and success and their communities continue to grow. Black fathers forced to turn to illegal means to make ends meet. Only for them to be sent to prison where they provide cheap labor as state property, further enriching these white businessmen. Now see the black kids growing up without a father in a single parent home where mom is barely ever around because she's working two jobs trying to stay afloat. Then use your Rp knowledge to figure out what the absence of generations of strong and reliable men in a community can do its people.

But wait, it doesn't matter what their ancestors went through...

This is incredibly perceptive; it betrays them as a group looking to be treated as victims, seek sympathy, place their troubles on external factors rather than seeking to improve their situation by making such a move.

I've always wondered what would happen if you just claimed to be a member of a protected group (basically anything besides a white or asian male). Unless things have changed I don't remember any college or scholarship application requiring a photo or a DNA test. How would they know if a white middle class kid just claims he identifies he's black on a college app?

[–]Diabolo_Advocato 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]chinawinsworlds 69 points70 points  (4 children)

Yep, that's what makes him more resistant to typical shaming tactics! Really useful, considering that feminists extremely rarely discuss without rampant usage of logical fallacies like ad hominem.

[–]TRP VanguardJP_Whoregan[S] 72 points73 points  (3 children)

It's not that it makes him more resistant, it just makes him infuriating to feminists, because Milo doesn't have a dog in the fight here; he is objectively observing what is happening to young white men, and making opinions based in obvious fact.

What drives the fems nuts is that, because of his orientation, none of the go-to insults work on him:

  • "You're just trying to get laid!
  • "You are just a brute with toxic masculinity!"
  • "You're just insecure with women because they intimidate you!"
  • "OK, you can stop staring at my tits now, you objectifying pig!"
  • "Ugh, stop hitting on me, you creep!"

See? None of it works. Milo is like if you took all of the buttons on your PS4 controller and someone rearranged them around randomly, you wouldn't have a clue how to play a game.

Feminists have been playing the "game" with men for so long, they have pre-canned responses and fallbacks that they know they can't use on Milo, so they self destruct. And when he responds with Pew Research polls, logic, and words out of their very own mouths, they really can't stand it.

[–]redestofthereds 63 points64 points  (0 children)

But....as a white TRP elder I can affirm that my son faces very real discrimination at school. Sadly, he is bright, athletic, well groomed and energetic.

Despite having higher scores on standardized tests, he and his friends get lower grades than girls. Teachers base grades partly on classroom behaviour and the standards are geared to female norms.

Boys are marked lower for:

Attentivensss

Task persistence

Flexibility

Organization

All qualities that young girls have a better grasp then elementary school boys.

What efforts are you taking to alleviate the indoctrination/abuse he's subjected to in that school?

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (5 children)

I don't know you and can't tell if the question is serious but I'll answer in case anyone else wants to learn something interesting. Sorry for the skepticism but I get hate mail telling me I'm most likely TRPer to raise mass shooters etc etc

My kid is smart, but a real pain in the ass sometimes. He doesn't listen, he loses his temper easily, hates to be corrected, is both oppositional and sometimes surly. His preschool teachers recommended OT and a full evaluation for autism, ADHD, and/or other "problems". It took about a year to finally get the neuropschye done so would "know" what's up.

The Dr said ADHD. A "candidate for meds". My wife and his teachers loved the idea. I read about the epidemic of ADHD and it was obvious to me that "boys will be boys" is now "put a pill in that kid so he calms down like a girl, a girl's behavior the gold standard".

I threatened to walk if he took a single pill. Soon after I found TRP and it all clicked. My son was given a shit test he couldn't possibly pass let alone understand. It was my job to protect him.

Years have passed, kid is still difficult but thriving

Now he plays a ton of sports to channel, not reduce his energy. We use behavior plans to get the HW done. He is in an accelerated class and doing well. Has friends etc.

I make sure he has positive male role models all the time (very picky about coaches). He is trapped all day at school with women teachers and administrators but I am home most nights to make sure his work and sports are on track.

He will do very well. He already shrugs off tons of peer pressure as he is pretty proud of what he has going on. He brags he is the strongest kid in his grade ( I make him do pushups and planks when he pisses me off)

A big part of my personal mission is unleashing him one day to accomplish whatever the fuck he wants. He will be beholden to no one (including me)

Funny right? This is the path to LEAST likely be a mass shooter but haters gotta hate

[–]tag2man 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You sound like a good father, all the best.

[–]Azzmo 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It was a legit question. Great answer. You had a good instinct to keep your son away from unneccesary medication.

What are you doing to keep him away from misandrist teachers and administrators? Sounds like he's doing pretty well but he's still a kid who is biologically programmed to trust adults. He's spending his days with people who literally believe he's born to the original sin of being male, with disposition toward violence, rape, rowdiness, etc.

I've wondered what I would do if I had a son about to enter school. Would I try to find a private school? Some sort of boarding school? Summers in the woods building trails? Would I warn the teachers that sexist behavior will be watched for and punished? Would I insist that the boy has every male teacher available?

I think your having him around positive male role models will alleviate some of the damage.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I am involved to the degree that I can be. His teachers are all young and mid20s girls and they know I am actively watching and listening.

To be honest, they have been pretty good lately as they are following my plans.

[–]GeminiEngine 0 points1 point  (1 child)

As someone who has studied up on ADHD because of its seeming abundance in my life. I will say that I think it is as a goto diagnosis of to many children. That these children are being raised in a system that does not support then. I agree with all of what I have read of yours above.

However, because of my exposure I see cases where it would take a small village to raise the child, read it as tribal, like some Indian tribes children were of the tribe not just the breeders.

How did you define that you had a strong likelihood to be able to raise your son properly in light of his [genetic] behavior?

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

First, i don't doubt that ADHD is real. I just think it's a wildly overdiagnoesed because of reasons I already mentioned.

Second, Apple doesn't fall far from tree. While I never sought help, I know my strengths and weaknesses. I have a good idea what he needs to be successful and weekly CBT therapy helps as another set of eyes is here.

Hardly sounds like a sacrifice. Make some money from the media attention, build a name for yourself which you can abuse to start a profitable "real" business afterwards, and probably score some decent tail in the meantime if you do this in the right environment.

Just tell the SJWs that overweight women trigger you due to some past trauma involving an overweight woman (ie abused by a large babysitter). Repeat the same process for other dealbreakers of yours.

Paradise, until someone finds this post.

[–]TRP VanguardArchwinger 19 points20 points  (0 children)

How do they test for gay people anyway? Can't you just say you're gay and apply for the scholarship?

"I'm terrified every day of my life. I'm so terrified of being found out that I started participating on r/theredpill and fucking a rotation of 12 different women so that nobody would know. It's so hard being me. I'm fucking a girl right now while I write this essay. That's how gay I am. If you don't understand this, you're a bigot homophobe, by the way. This scholarship money would help me hide my gayness until I can get my degree."

[–]foldpak111 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Just tell them you're gay and feel discriminated by society for it. It's the route of least resistance because you don't have to make up crazy shit or go trans and get all these operations.

[–]unassumingusername7 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh, I don't need an operation. I just identify as a gay woman stuck in a man's body.

Saw this on Twitter yesterday. I love Milo. Sounds silly, but I was legitimately excited when he RT'd me the other day. Anyway, he's tackling issues that few others would dare talk about for fear of being ostracized by much of our blue pill, PC society. I'm totally applying for it. I'm going to sound slightly bitter here, because I am— I hate being bitter about anything, but sometimes I just can't help it.

When I was applying for colleges, my high school gave me a website to check out for scholarships. Despite the fact that I was top 5 in my class (finished with a 99.63 GPA; would've been ranked #1 in any other class that had come before or would come after), played baseball and was in several clubs and activities, and got a 2220 on my SAT, I qualified for none of the scholarships. Not a single one. It really hurts being a middle class, straight, white male from South Jersey. Middle class, male, and white because that disqualified me from nearly every scholarship. Being from South Jersey hurts because we get grouped in with rich North Jersey people who all go to private school, have connections, and are automatically accepted into the Ivy's and other top schools— therefore those top schools take less people from NJ because of quotas (and of course being white doesn't help since Affirmative Action discriminates against white and Asians, and schools are more likely to accept some mentally ill "pansexual" than a straight kid). Not being available for any of the scholarships killed me because my family being in the middle class actually made things worse in terms of school. The cost of living is so high here (like the rest of the northeast) that, although my parents' nominal income seemed okay and we're certainly in a much better situation than most people in my town (a lower-middle class, drug infested town), we really don't have much money for anything else. I couldn't afford to go to any of the good schools I got into, and am instead going to a state school a few miles away in one of America's poorest and most dangerous cities.

So yeah, Idc what anyone says, it legitimately is tough to be a straight, white male in today's society. I don't buy into that white privilege bullshit. I never had anything handed to me— in fact, I had opportunities taken away from me, no matter how hard I worked. The fact that Milo is doing this is great.

Also, all the people that are bitching about it calling it ridiculous need to see that he's doing nothing different from the people who offer black and female STEM major scholarships. That's pretty much what he's trying to point out: no scholarships should be based off of race, gender, or sexual orientation, but off of merit and need. But until— if ever— that day comes, there needs to be something to help white males, too.

[–]RedMoonAscendant 13 points14 points  (6 children)

Yep. People say I have privilege. Fuck that. I had to pay my final year of college on credit cards because I couldn't even get student loans anymore. Just fucking imagine that.

Then these whining feminist bitches that went to school for free to take feminist studies courses come along and call me privileged.

If I was actually privileged, I'd have the privilege to punch them in their privileged faces.

[–]RPwhitefrost 5 points6 points  (5 children)

First off, let me just say that I'm sorry to hear that. I mean, my words don't mean much in the grand scheme of things, but I'm sincere when I say that that really fucking blows.

I'm in the honors college at my school, and one of the requirements is that you have to take a seminar, or pretty much just a small discussion course with like 15-20 kids. Well, I'm a History-Econ double major, so I took the history seminar to get credits. Turns out, it's a biography course, and the biographies we have to read are essentially about how much the lives of women and minorities have sucked and how bad the white man is.

I never judge an individual—male or female, black, white, or Muslim, gay or straight, whatever— based on anything other than their character; however, I also thinks it's foolish to not keep generalizations or stereotypes in mind— they hold some, if not a hell of a lot of truth (people can't grasp the concept that stereotypes don't mean that you assume literally 100% of a group is like that). So I already know I'm going to get myself in a lot of trouble in a class that's 60% women and 75% some other race than white. I already know people are going to talk about how terrible white males are, and, while normally I wouldn't take it as a personal insult, I know all the people in there will expect us white guys to apologize and act guilty, and I'm not having any of that. I'm sick of being blamed for everything. I'm sick of walking around campus and seeing all kinds of stuff pretty much telling white men that they're the cause of every social ill in the world. And, most of all, I'm sick of seeing signs around school saying 90% of campus rapes go unreported— HOW THE FUCK DO YOU KNOW IF THEY GO UNREPORTED.

[–]RedMoonAscendant 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Honestly I'm glad I had the shit I had instead of the shit you have. I went to college in the 1990's. It was liberal back then, but nothing like the weird Nazi-esque witch-hunting liberalism I see today. In hindsight, the years of paying off those high-interest credit cards was a way better shit sandwich.

These cunts have been coming into the work-force the past 5 years, and it's gotten really fucked up.

[–]xeroblaze0 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Say a rape happens, but rapee doesn't do anything, which is common. Then the school or whoever puts out a survey with a question along the lines of "have you ever been sexually assaulted?" The disparity of results indicates % unreported.

That's how it was explained to me.

[–]RPwhitefrost 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Now, I'm certain some rape goes unreported. But 90%? Really? I'm not trying to trivialize rape. It's one of the three most vile crimes I think anyone can commit; however, a lot of women don't know what rape is anymore. A women consents to sex, but then regrets it later. It's rape. A woman gets stroked on the arm. Rape. Hell, I've even seen Twitter feminists say that men staring them down is "undressing them with their eyes" and therefore rape. So I think those statistics are inflated, not to mention that rapes overall have been falling since the 1970s.

[–]xeroblaze0 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Agreed, it is an awful thing. But ironically in the pursuit of getting those unreported rapes reported, SJWs are trivializing it.

[–]RedMoonAscendant 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The theory is that they ask in anonymous surveys, and women say they were raped or assaulted or something. So the theory is good. This is what feminists will argue when they argue with you. Be prepared for it (if you choose to argue, which most will say isn't a battle worth waging).

The problem is, the surveys were poorly worded and leading. So the responses of "yes" were really to things like "Did you, later on, feel a little uncomfortable about the situation?" If a girl's peers slut-shamed her, she probably answered "yes" and the survey owners decided this meant she'd been raped.

So that 1-in-5 raped statistic you hear? Or was it 4 in 5? Whatever it is: total bullshit.

Remember, when arguing with a feminist, the only people that matter are those that overhear. She will never change her mind. So keep your cool, amused mastery, be funny, and stick to the facts. Some people will be swayed.

[–]dsquard 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I recently graduated from college (30 yrs old) with ~$25k in debt. I went to CC, which was virtually free thanks to FAFSA and my abysmal income (no longer a dependent, so my parents' income was irrelevant). Everything's fine.

Get to the university, and suddenly shit is expensive as fuck. I figure, what the hell, I'm poor and have an immaculate academic track record (since returning to school), surely there's something for me?

Scroll down the list. Twice. I qualified for nothing. Not. A. Single. One. It's as if poor white males don't exist.

This anti white male stuff has become worse by the year. It's like the higher ups want to breed the white gene out of the population. Proclaiming preference for the blue eyed and blond is considered Nazism. Our entire society is on some massive ethnic diversity circle jerk. White women are encouraged to go black or prefer the 'dark look', no such encouragement is found in black or hispanic women towards white males.

It's not even subtle. Our entire male gender is depicted as a joke in pop culture more so than ever. The awkward white nerd, the bad dancer, the goofy dad etc. White males are portrayed to dress bad, suck in the sack and to be all around lame. Think of any lame and sexless stereotypes in the last ten years and you end up with someone that's white- all except for Tay Zonday from Chocolate Rain and This guy

Gone are the times of James Bond and Han Solo. We are encouraged to become beta providers with absolutely no equal opportunity to finish our higher education. Our privilege is thought to be so stratosphericly high that it's considered our moral obligation to stand down for minorities.

Being white in today's world means you constantly have to feel guilty of some heinous crime your forefathers supposedly committed. Worst of all, most of us take it like the sappy beta we're thought to be. The society that's trying to fuck us over still needs us. It's time to put our foot in the door and stop this white genocide.

[–]TRP VanguardJP_Whoregan[S] 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Another place this is evident is in American television advertisements. Look at the average TV commercial today; start taking notice of it. Black men are portrayed as cool, hip, and "with it", women are portrayed as "smart, matriarchal, and wise", and white men are always the dopey husband, the idiot, or the backwards oaf who doesn't "get it".

Bill Maher nails it here, a MUST WATCH:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x64cy3Bcr98

[–]1PantsonFire1234 4 points5 points  (2 children)

It's fucking beyond me why no one speaks up. Are people that afraid to appear racist? The funniest yet most disheartening part of it all is that women actually believe this shit. Bil Maher speaks the truth.

My local gym is a prime example. We have a second floor weight room about the size of two swimming pools laid side by side. The area is surrounded by windows with a wide wallpaper with photographs running from window to window. On all these pictures you have young fit males and females pretending to have fun with their workouts. The women are equally represented by white, Asian american etc. All the men are black or dark tanned dudes. It's obvious and in your face all the time. Our Gym is sponsored by Cross-fit and Under Armour.

[–]TRP VanguardJP_Whoregan[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Exactly. Do you need any further evidence of the media agenda? This shit does not happen by accident, it is not an enigma. It is coldly calculated. White men are persona non grata in today's society.

[–]1PantsonFire1234 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ethnic diversity just means more lower class and dumber people that are easy to manipulate. Besides that you could argue that there's something expressions of our DNA that are 'unwanted' for a long time.

My only concern is that the recipient of the grant will be made known and their lives trashed by the media. This reminds me of the rule of power where you nod your head like the others but don't think or act the way they do in order to protect your reputation. If this Grant ever comes to fruition, which it likely won't, then there is a very real threat of feminist terrorism.

[–]TRP VanguardJP_Whoregan[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

And then it will spark a massive discussion about feminist hypocrisy, which is exactly what Milo wants. This is the point Milo is making; for half a century, feminism has been able to duck and dodge uncomfortable questions they don't like, such as:

  • Why don't you address the truth about the "gender wage gap"?
  • Why is a woman being abused horrific but a man being abused funny?"
  • Why are there gender- and race-specific scholarships and grants for literally every demographic except white males?

This is his way of trying to force the issue, to make them actually defend their beliefs and positions in a proper forum. In other words, "Feminists, what is it you believe so harshly, so violently, that you are willing to smear vitriolic hate upon someone for simply doing the same thing you are doing, which is promote your own demographic?"

[–]MakeEmSayAyy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

In other words, "Feminists, what is it you believe so harshly, so violently, that you are willing to smear vitriolic hate upon someone for simply doing the same thing you are doing, which is promote your own demographic?"

They cannot answer this. This question being posed will be heinous to them.

[–]foldpak111 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Anyone who is ahead of their time will be vilified in the present, yet glorified in the future for just how right they were. Like Ghandi or Newton.

People hate Milo because they fear what they don't understand so seek the easy path out, which is to mock and criticize. What he preaches will be the norm in 20 years because history will always repeat itself. To question a white male grant from a university will be like calling a black man a nigger.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I can see it now , " How isn't it sexist that a specific group of white males get a scholarship! oh wait... "

[–]The_Reddit_Wanderer 5 points5 points [recovered]

Not bad. I feel like we should do away with scholarships based on race/gender. Just have awards open to everyone who meet certain academic/extra-curriculular standards.

However, one could argue that someone from a lower economic class would be at a disadvantage. Working while studying might prevent them from getting better grades or participating in clubs, sports, etc. I'm not sure how to address that other than financial aid or rewards specifically for these students. Of course, there would have to be standards met.

[–]TRP VanguardJP_Whoregan[S] 2 points3 points  (3 children)

NCAA athletes have the same problem. They can't work part time jobs for extra money like other students because their free time is taken up in football/baseball/hockey/lacrosse practice.

[–]Diabolo_Advocato 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm pretty sure the school is taking very good care of their athletes since those same athletes are the ones filling the stadiums and bringing in hundreds of thousands,if not millions, of dollars to the school. I've also heard of athletes getting off easy in classes or just getting easy classes in general to graduate, it's been a gripe since college sports has been a thing.

Since times are changing, who knows.

I'm not even white, and I think it's a good idea. This was one of the true double standards that I just couldn't logically reconcile in my younger days. AA is just not right for both practical and moral reasons, despite its 'social justice' intentions. Even the left-leaning US Supreme Court is starting to waver on it.

[–]TRP VanguardJP_Whoregan[S] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Even as a kid, I knew AA was wrong. I used to think to myself "why do black people need preferential treatment? Isn't that a racist idea by itself, that black people aren't good enough to compete with other races for jobs?"

If I were a black person I'd be offended by AA. It is a shining example of something George Bush coined: The soft bigotry of low expectations, which basically says that we shouldn't expect greatness from black people because they aren't capable of achieving it. It is the worst form of bigotry.

I've used Trusts to create legacy grants for clients of mine. Basically when the person dies, the remaining estate will be invested in self-perpetuating things like annuities with half the income used to create college scholarships for kids in high schools that the folks went to as a kid.

This essentially could be done by all of us. Or you get one million pissed off angry men to contribute a buck a month to a trust, that puts the holdings into annuities with guaranteed returns, and then give back half of the income to the contributors and use the other half to create scholarships.

Fighting racism with racism and sexism with sexism... In today's world yes it seems great because White males do not get nearly as many scholarship opportunities compared to minorities and females and its unfair to White males. But getting even isn't always right.

Holy shit that video really fucking upset me.

He said basically: "There are no scholarships for white males, but for every other demographic and gender, so we wanted to fix that and thus give everyone an equal opportunity to attend college"

She said: "This scholarship is just a strategy to put down programs that focus on diversity and hype up the idea of the disadvantaged white male..."

I mean, wtf? I cannot even comprehend the association with that? Trying to hype up the "white male oppression"? okay, I can somewhat relate to that, but hell, "a strategy to put down programs that focus on diversity and inclusion" WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK.

That's like saying "Yeah there is no space for bananas in this supermarket and we created one, so bananas can be sold."

"Fuck you, you're trying to put down oranges, tomatoes and grapefruits!!! They need to be sold too! With the introduction of bananas you're trying to threaten diversity"

I'm so astonished by the stupidness of this argument. I can't wrap my head around it.

[–]TRP VanguardJP_Whoregan[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Because minority men already have scholarships available to them. Many scholarships. I've outlined them in another response. A black male can qualify, for example, for a "Presidential Diversity Grant", from Barack Obama, worth over $32,000. It's white males that don't have any race- or gender-based scholarships. Hence, Milo is creating one.

Yes, poor Asian men, children to poor Asian immigrants, are the most fucked in this country. But they don't have an advocate like Milo. I'll tell you another demographic in America that works it's ass off: Indian-American immigrants. I'm an insurance agent and one of my clients is a husband-wife team who works a convenience store; they aren't at the point to afford hiring employees yet, but they split shifts 6am-2pm, 2pm-10pm, 7 days a week. And they never complain. They will make it one day, they will be wealthy.

They don't march in the streets like black America, demanding $15/hour for burger flipping at McDonalds. The put their nose to the grindstone, and work towards the American Dream. My job has taught me that many Indian immigrants (legal, btw) know more about the American Dream than Americans do.
