When I talk about the so called manosphere, I almost always say the “so called manosphere” because there’s nothing about it that benefits men. Thus the term “manosphere” is inaccurate. Based on the behavior of everyone in the so called manosphere, the correct name for it should be the gullibleosphere because gullibleospherians are constantly being fooled by pranks and scams. Just think about the long list of scams that have successfully scammed everyone in the gullibleosphere from the paleo diet to (Roissyite) game.
It’s isn’t just the large scale scams that fool the gullibleospherians. Last month, Paul Elam was fooled by a fake website that was supposedly by a former Georgetown University employee and grad student who was discriminating against men in admissions for Georgetown. The website had several red flags that suggested it was a prank or a scam, but Paul Elam went ahead with it anyway. Recently, The Awakening of the Disseminating let us how Roissy used a picture that had a normal guy’s face photoshopped on to a male underwear model as an example of confident asshole game. (There is more info about this at PUAHate.) This whole thing was sent to Roissy as a prank, and he fell hook, line, and sinker for it. Even after being told that the picture is fake, Roissy just dug deeper. These two examples show just how gullible the gullibleosphere is.
The gullibeosphere has earned its name. There probably is not a more gullible group of people anywhere.
