Grizzly let us know that Return of Kings decided that this week was fat (woman) shaming week. RoK had several head scratching articles like Atheists are fatties and 5 ways to bully fat sluts on a date. My personal favorite was Larger Women Require Larger Game by Nigel “Big Game” Davis who runs the game parody blog, Nigel’s Big Game Blog. (If the authors of game parody blogs are now writing for Return of Kings, by the end of 2014 I will be able to write posts for Return of Kings.) There was also a twitter hash tag setup for the purposes of picking fights with feminists and other women who had a problem with what they were saying.
Fat (woman) shaming is something that comes up in the manosphere pretty regularly. Besides all of the fat (woman) shaming that went on at RoK, Matt Forneydarmu also engages in a lot of fat (woman) shaming. Why does the manosphere try to shame fat women so much? If game actually worked, they should be all banging thin hot chicks. They shouldn’t care about fat chicks. You don’t see a man who gets laid regularly with hot chicks like Alek Novy complain about fat women.
What this proves is that guys in the so called manosphere aren’t getting laid, and that their meager options for getting laid (if they have any) are obese women. Faced with this reality, they lash out against fat women. It’s a pathetic attempt at feeling superior and revenge fantasies. The other aspect to the manosphere’s fat woman shaming is that manospherians are fat. They’re on the paleo diet which keeps them fat. The manospherians’ ideology says that the paleo diet should make them fit, but it doesn’t. To deal with the failure of their ideology they lash out against fat women instead of reevaluating their beliefs.
At this point, some of you are probably thinking, “BP, we know that the so called manosphere is filled with fat guys who aren’t getting laid. Who cares about this?” The reason to care is that the manospherians keep picking fights with feminists and everyone else. That wouldn’t be a problem except that what to so called manosphere is doing is being attributed to the MRM. Manosphere blogs that state in clear terms that they hate the MRM yet they still get identified as MRM blogs. I suspect this confusion is semi-intentional on the part of the so called manosphere in an attempt to generate attention/publicity for the so called manosphere. I think they believe any publicity is good publicity, and that it will generate sales of their books. Since they hate the MRM, trashing the MRM in this manner is a bonus to them. The reason to care about this is that so called manosphere refuses to leave the MRM alone. Instead they’re using the MRM as a mask to generate attention and cause harm to the MRM.
