Despite the title and that today is Halloween, this blog article is not about gamers failing to get laid on Halloween. Instead this article was inspired by the following which was written by Simpsonsdidit.
This is true. There are plenty of fake anti-gamers who are just peddling game under a different name while claiming to be anti-game. Lots of game blogs are unable to differentiate themselves so many of them will “reinvent” themselves as anti-game to stand out. Others want to peddle game, but don’t want to be involved with the “misogyny” of game. (Dr. Manginalove is an example of this.) Regardless of the reason, they are still peddling game or some form of dating advice even if it isn’t technically game anymore.
The way to deal with game in disguise is to remember that all forms of dating advice are a part of the MDAD, the Misandrist Dating Advice Distraction. It does not matter if a person says they’re pro-game or anti-game. It doesn’t matter if they were a gamer, but now they’re anti-game. If they are peddling dating advice, then they are a part of the MDAD. All forms of dating advice are a part of the MDAD since there can be no pro-male dating advice until society is de-feminized. Opposing game is too narrow. We need to oppose all of dating advice whether it is game or something else. (Opposing game also has the problem of not recognizing the problems of various subsets of game. Roissyite game (and its derivatives like the Paleo-Game Cult) is a unique strain of game because 99.9% of gamers do not share Roissyite gamers’ racism, conspiracy theory, paleo diet obsession, etc. Since Roissyite game is the strain of game that has invaded the MRM, it needs to be specifically and explicitly opposed. Just being opposed to game doesn’t recognize the unique problems of Roissyite game.)
The key idea to remember is not just to oppose game. Otherwise you are giving game in disguise and non-game forms of dating advice (all of which are misandry) a pass.
