Admittedly, I know very little about homosexuals, other than I find homosexual males to be mildly unpleasant and homosexual females to be a bit absurd. I’m not a homosexual and I have had minimal dealings with homosexuals. Many moons ago I worked a job in Cambridge Massachusetts. There was a lesbian bar and a leather chaps bar within a block of my work. I got to observe scads of homosexuals, but I can’t say I learned much from watching them.
I once had a gay guy working for me. This was when I was working near the gay bars mentioned above. He deeply resented the leather chaps crowd, because he thought they made his kind look bad. That sounded reasonable to me, given that they were dying like flies from AIDS. They also reinforced the idea of gays being generally weird, not just sexually weird. He also detested lesbians. I have no idea if this was just him or common with male homosexuals.
I know a woman who sells real estate to higher end clients. Her area is mostly $750K condos and million dollar suburban homes. Some of her properties are two and three times those rates, but her bread and butter is the million dollar range. She gets to deal with all sorts at their most unpleasant. Buying a house is on the list of most stressful events in life, along with birth and death.
She ranks homosexuals at the bottom of her preferred list of clients. Indians are the next worse followed by East Asians. Indian males are abusive to women in the workplace and East Asians can’t stop haggling. Homosexual males, I’m told by my friend, are petty, mean, pointlessly cruel to one another, overly dramatic and unwilling to follow the rules. She hates dealing with them as a result.
The point of this is as a preamble to this story.
On October 1, the computing giant Intel pulled its ads from Gamasutra, a trade website for game developers, over an essay called “‘Gamers’ don’t have to be your audience. ‘Gamers’ are over” by a journalist named Leigh Alexander. Intel had been successfully harassed by a small, contemptible crusade called “Gamergate”—a campaign of dedicated anti-feminist internet trolls using an ill-informed mob of alienated and resentful video game-playing teenagers and young men to harass and intimidate female activists, journalists, and critics.
Unable to run Alexander out of game writing, as they had with the writer Jenn Frank, or force her from her home, as they did to the developer Brianna Wu, or threaten her from public engagements, as they did the following week to the critic and activist Anita Sarkeesian, Gamergate went after her publisher. And, in an unbelievable and embarrassing act of ignorance and cowardice, Intel capitulated. The company’s laughable “apology,” released late on that Friday afternoon, didn’t cover up the fact of Gamergate’s victory: Intel was not replacing its ads.
Failing to adequately cover this act of spinelessness was the first big fuck-up we at Gawker committed. Intel surrendered to the worst kind of dishonesty, and we allowed it to do so without ever calling it out. So let’s say it now: Intel is run by craven idiots. It employs pusillanimous morons. It lacks integrity. It folded to misogynists and bigots who objected to a woman who had done nothing more than write a piece claiming a place in the world of video games. And even when confronted with its own thoughtlessness and irresponsibility, it could not properly right its wrongs.
I may be mistaken, but my impression is that Gawker is a site run by and for homosexual men. If I recall, they got started “outing” people they did not like and then moved onto harassing Hollywood people. Homosexual males have a fetish for the entertainment business for some reason. They populate all of the gossip sites. Even in the dead tree era, Hollywood gossip writers were almost always gay men.
What makes this piece hilarious to me is how the pink mafia is being hit with the very same tactics they have used to assault normal people for three decades. Everything about the “gay rights movement” has been a fraud from the beginning, including their creation myth. Organized crime used gay clubs as cover, thinking the cops could not send in undercover officers to spy on them. The mob made money selling drugs to the gays and letting them fornicate in the back.
Anyway, the tactics used by the rainbow party have always been dishonest. They were one of the first to bully advertisers to pull ads from people they disliked. They organized boycotts aimed at liberal nitwits who would then join in and force normals to go along with whatever the gays were demanding. The harassment of Christian bakers is the most recent example of the petty and nasty habits of the “gay rights” crowd. Seeing the tables tuned on them and their fellow travelers is just too funny.
Everything about the campaign against the white men in the STEM world is based on lies. The broads at the heart of the gamergate controversy are simply attention whores making a buck off people seeking grace on the cheap. Set yourself up as a victim in a way that fits the Narrative and the world is your oyster. It turns out that nerdy boys like video games way more than girls, in every way that sentence can be construed. That’s why they end up writing code at game shops. Women end up in nursing and medicine for the same reason.
I’ve said for a while that homosexuals will regret having thrown in with the CML. Liberals hate homosexuals more than they hate blacks. As soon as “gay rights” stops being a useful weapon against normal people, the homos go back into the liberal dungeon. There’s also a limit to the amount of cultural insanity a society can tolerate. Unless you can monopolize violence like the North Koreans, the people will eventually get fed up and replace their rulers. It is the lesson of history. The lunatics in charge of western countries are pushing the natural limits with this stuff and the inevitable consequences will follow. In the end, nature always wins.
