After trying and failing at not including 'loser' in several variations of the title of the link to this news, I'm just going to link to it without comment.


"incel" men (short for "involuntary celibacy"). According to the anonymous author of the blog, who says that he identified as incel from age 14 to 24...


In other news, SJW activists are usually idiots. Sources: tumblr; this article.

I'd seen the term 'involuntary celibacy' used once before by a guy on a message board arguing (very badly, unfortunately) for legalization of prostitution, but given that that guy was not the sharpest knife in the drawer I figured he just came up with it himself.  Then I saw it on that bit of news and was like "Oh fuck, it must be some new MRA term. :("

What's this MRA and why is there so much internet hate surrounding it? I've been accused of 'being an MRA' more than once and apparently it's some sort of "i win" card.

@Ashton: Is this right?

MRA -- Acronym for a group called 'Men's Rights Activists':

"A bunch of whiny pedantic morons that think there is some vast Illuminati feminist conspiracy while seemingly ignoring the fact that their own gender runs the majority of the world."
-- Urban Dictionary

Uhhh, yeah Urban Dictionary pretty much summed it up.  They have some good ideas once in a while but it generally consists of whining about the excesses of a straw man version of feminism, Bill Maher style.  I'm pretty sure there's a MRA Reddit floating around somewhere if someone wants to venture in and take a look.

And yes, Ashton, it's also used by morons as an "I win" card, much like declaring your opponent racist and then running away.

Ferris: Not that I condone fascism, or any -ism for that matter. -Ism's in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an -ism, he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon, "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me."

This story pisses me off. A lot. http://www.cnn.com/2013/07/27/us/washington-soldier-dog/index.html?iref=storysearch

I don't care how you feel about the troops and what they are doing, but you do not fuck with a mans dog.

All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

What an asshole.  Frankly, I give kudos to that soldier for asking around about it (and hopefully filing a lawsuit in the future) rather than just beating an answer out of the guy.  I'm pretty sure those who would take that approach are not a small minority, in particular among soldiers.
