I haven’t been to A Voice For Men for a while until today when Grizzly let us know that the 20/20 episode about the manosphere was going to be shown this Friday. Most of you should remember that I criticized AVFM for linking to Inmalafide and Hawaiian Fat Blob, and that Paul Elam strongly disagreed with me about it. Since then, AVFM did a 180 on its “support” of (the now nonexistent) Inmalafide, and Ferdinand Bardamu was revealed to be Matt Forney. That left the link on AVFM’s blogroll to Hawaiian Fat Blob as AVFM’s last link to the man-0-sphere. Sometime between then and now that link has been removed from AVFM’s blogroll. Instead AVFM now links to other blogs including Aaron Sleazy’s blog, and Aaron Sleazy is now writing at AVFM under the name, Jalon Cain.
This is a quantum leap of improvement for AVFM, and I am very happy to see it. It’s just funny that despite the strong opposition I got from Paul Elam, AVFM ended up doing eventually what I knew to be the right course of action. It’s a good thing AVFM took care of this when they did. Paul Elam was interviewed for the 20/20 episode, and 20/20 is trying to tie him to the man-0-sphere to the point that 20/20 is called Elam, the mayor of the man-0-sphere.
I have this seen this type of thing happen so many times. A fellow MRA will vociferously disagree with me about something I said just to end up agreeing with me later. That’s something everyone reading this should remember. You may disagree with something I say now and find it to be too extreme, but it’s likely you will end up agreeing with me sooner or later.
