Amanda Marcotte’s Thinks Like A Conspiracy Theorist

Pro-Male/Anti-Feminist Tech has done some excellent work uncovering even more misandry from well known feminist, Amanda Marcotte.  (Also, check out the first update and the second update.)  Thanks to the work of Snark and The Fifth Horseman what Amanda Marcotte’s absurd claim about how men commit suicide as a means of abusing women has been exposed to a great many people over the weekend.

In reading Marcotte’s BS I couldn’t help but notice how her thinking pattern was similar to a conspiracy theorist.  It’s not a surprise since the “patriarchy” that feminists believe in is a conspiracy theory.  In this case there isn’t a conspiracy per se (although it wouldn’t surprise me if Marcotte tomorrow says this is a coordinated plan among men to abuse women), but it’s similar to a conspiracy theory in that it has absurd claims that someone has a secret plan to do something.  In this case Marcotte believes that men secretly plot to kill themselves to abuse women.

New research has shown that people who believe in conspiracy theories are more likely than the general population to be willing to be a part of a conspiracy.  This means for Amanda Marcotte that by accusing men of secret plots like suicide to abuse women, she isn’t exposing the secret plots of men, but really admitting that she is willing to secretly plot against men.

  1. I believe Amanda Marcotte shares a psychological condition common to women, in that:
    1. she is right
    2. she can never be corrected
    3. she will do wrong to ensure she “stays” right, e.g. say “Thomas Ball is a loser who wanted to hurt his ex-wife by killing himself”.

    Another one of her false accusation gems has been: “I had to listen to how the poor dear lacrosse players at Duke are being persecuted just because they held someone down and fucked her against her will—not rape, of course, because the charges have been thrown out. Can’t a few white boys sexually assault a black woman anymore without people getting all wound up about it? So unfair.”

    • If that’s the case even Asia, Eastern Europe and South America are done for.
      For Asia at least:
      China now has at least one “town where females rule”.
      India has the IPC 498a dowry law.
      Malaysia is saying stockmarket listed companies need at least 30% female management
      Singapore has greedy and grasping women.

      Not much longer to go now, actually. This idea of “you’re such a nice guy, just be yourself” is a means for women to gain advantages without putting in any work of their own.
      For a lot of women, free male labour in one way or another put them in a position to sneer that men “simply don’t measure up”.

      • I just had the opportunity to speak to a customer-contact person (female) about why their immediate superior (who was conveniently out at the time) couldn’t honour a commitment he made earlier.

        Females the superior communicator? Only if you believe it, and give them the upper hand to avoid their responsibilities.

        This woman kept talking very slowly as if she was speaking to a child, and kept repeating herself. In the end I ended the call and sent a pointed e-mail to the superior.

        Remember: she’s getting paid to push people off. Seems that’s the only thing many women in customer-contact positions can do… and they get promotions over the people who actually get productive work done.
