Why's he controversial? Never heard of him,

AutumnCrow Sun 13-Oct-19 23:42:51

Who's that then, Ted?

Good on her. She did one with Dangerfield a few weeks ago too (whoever he is). She told him she only has a cursory look at his feed, that she doesn't really care beyond a certain point what their politics are, as it is so important and urgent for people to understand what is going on.

I agree. The woman has ovaries of steel.

I just Googled him, and Wiki claims that he's calling for a white ethnostate... not cool sadangry

I got about halfway through. Not for me.

Oh he is a serious MRA isn't he. He's like the Midnight Misogynist here isn't he? Nasty piece of work.

I love Posie, but she shouldn't have wasted her time talking to him.


RadicalStitch Mon 14-Oct-19 00:47:59

She's bloody brilliant, and I'm glad she's talking to anyone who will listen.
The comments in the vid are often MRA or anti Semitic.
It's a tough call, but I agree with her policy of getting the message out.

RadicalStitch Mon 14-Oct-19 00:49:02

Should clarify; I only listened to apx 10 mins earlier. Will listen to all tomorrow.

ChipOnMyOvary Mon 14-Oct-19 00:52:33

I watched it all. During it did not get particular sense of guys pov. She did brilliantly so good on her.

Also I’m not defending it but from when I lived in Quebec I did find most people were very anti immigration & it stems from their History. When the English arrived in Canada the Quebec people (who were ethnically French) fought the English (politically not through battle) to keep Quebec a separate French speaking part. They sort of have this obsession with only French people living in Quebec & have this paranoia about being colonised by another group (English or any foreign outsiders)

Samantha - I'd never heard of him before this thread - but I heard misogyny in his interview with posie last night.

He made every nasty MRA argument in the book.

He said: Women are responsible for break up of families, western women are the most privileged people who have ever existed, women are as violent as men, and just as likely to commit crime as men, but get away with it because people pity them.

He also seemed very offended by single mothers, and very offended that women thought they "could get a job and pay for their little apartment, and raise the children on their own" - gosh - how dare these uppity women want some independence?

He went on about women divorcing their husbands, and making false allegations in court, or threatening to.

^If that isn't misogyny, I don't know what is.

His racism and anti-semitism seems to be off the scale - and saying "oh, everyone's racist in Quebec does not excuse this. Vile man.

Point of order - a friend of mine used to date a bloke from Quebec, and I'm pretty sure he wasn't particularly racist.

BernardBlacksWineIceLolly Mon 14-Oct-19 07:49:13

everyone's racist in Quebec

deary, deary me. Is racism the way of his people? should we be respecting his ancient folkways?

moral relativism. it's not good folks

Posie can talk to whomsoever she likes. Doesn’t mean we have to like or agree with them. She probably doesn’t like or agree with them all either. Jesus, what is all this fear of speaking to people? You can’t catch right wing you know.

I cba to watch the video. I’m sure I’ve heard Posie say it all before so I don’t need to. The people who watch this bloke’s videos might not have, and just because they might be awful racists and misogynists doesn’t mean they’re not allowed to hear what she’s got to say either.

This whole ’I don’t like your views so you’re not allowed to hear me and I won’t talk to you’ nonsense is all a bit school playground. Grow the fuck up.

Something to bear in mind is that there are lots of women who don't share your/my political views who are nonetheless impacted by all the gender stuff because they're women. Some of them will also have children who it has an impact on. I'd like it if those women were aware of what's happening so that they could respond accordingly, wouldn't you?

I feel like this is probably a divide between those for whom feminism is their primary affiliation, in which case all women matter and deserve a seat at the table when discussing the impact gender ideology has on them, and those for whom being on the left is the primary affiliation, who may object to attempts to reach out to right wing women. Most here probably affiliate with both political philosophies, but on some issues primary affiliation may tip the balance.

I'm very left but even more feminist and very much in favor of bringing right wing women to the table. This guy I don't like at all, but if a few women watch his channel and see what Posie has to say then that may prompt them to get involved. This is such a massive issue that I'm glad there are some GC women who'll talk to pretty much anyone.

I'd never heard of him before this thread - but I heard misogyny in his interview with posie last night

He’s had a bitter divorce & so his views are somewhat clouded when it comes to family courts. He’s not saint I’ll say that but as someone who’s watched his show a lot the only time I’ve seen him be vaguely misogynistic is when he’s talking about family courts etc. If you watched his show regularly you wouldn’t think he was some hardcore MRA/misogynist & there’s no way I’d be able to watch him if he was, but I agree on this issue he is really really bad.

Are you having some sort of episode thesamantha1990?

Should we send for help?

thesamantha1990 Mon 14-Oct-19 09:44:58

What? I was responding to your comment? You haven’t rebutted anything I said?

Scoring high in literacy isn’t associated with having a high IQ, I’m just educating you on something you don’t know much about. You can google it if you don’t believe me, Dr Dutton has work on this.

I've always wondered what random unnecessary capitalization indicates about a person's mental state. There's a certainly a bit of a pattern to who uses it.
