Alek Novy and I have written some comments about how conspiracy theorists will turn on the MRM once the MRM gets mainstream enough. I thought these comments deserved to be featured in a post. The first one is from Alek Novy.
The only reason conspiracy theorists like Hawaiian blob are mentioning feminism negatively is because they make conspiracy theories about everything. They just throw everything and everything into that grinder.
This morning for example… I saw a guy walking around the street YELLING… like running toward the janitors and yelling something about the end of the world, and how the janitors are in on it (because they work for the city council)…
Then he ran and yelled something about aliens, and then he started running into traffic, yelling at the cars (talking to the headlights I think)… This went on for like 40 minutes (while he was in my sight I mean).
And when conspiracy theorists do that anti-feminism becomes meaningless. Guys like Hawaiian Fat Blob say they’re against feminism, but in what meaningful way are they against feminism? Saying feminism is bad because it’s something the Jews/Rockefellers/Illuminati did doesn’t tell me why feminism is bad. If conspiracy theorists didn’t think that the Jews/Rockefellers/Illuminati were involved with feminism, then they would have no problem with it. To me that makes them de facto feminists, since they would be willing to support feminism in a different context.
PMAFT has talked about how the MRM will eventually become part of all these conspiracies which makes sense since like you said, everything gets thrown into the conspiracy theory grinder. Since the conspiracy theorists will turn on us when the MRM becomes large enough/influential enough, then why should be include them now?

The last part is the most important one. Note that these guys are just contrarians. They are anti-whatever-the-mainstream-is. Whatever the current mainstream or leading diet proposal, these guys latch onto a conspiracy theory diet fad that is opposite of it. Whatever the leading advice on making money, they find a conspiracy theory that says that’s a conspiracy to keep you poor etc… etc… If MRA ever gets mainstream, they’ll turn against the MRA and claim the MRA was Rockefeller funded.
Why should we take conspiracy theorists seriously? Besides the lack of evidence and how insane conspiracy theorists obviously are, as soon as the MRM is successful enough, the conspiracy theorists will turn on us because that will be a “contrarian” position from their perspective. Conspiracy theorists aren’t going to help us with anti-feminism, so why bother with them?
