There’s a hashtag called #NeverKissAGamer that got started by some mangina opposed to #GamerGate. Looking at the tweets for it, #NeverKissAGamer has been turned into a joke which makes sense because it is a joke.
When I first heard of it, my first thought was, “how are women going to not kiss me more than they do now?” It’s not like women can kiss me less than zero times. It’s an impotent threat.
You may say that while it is true for me, most gamers aren’t kissless virgins so it wouldn’t be an impotent threat for them. The fact is that it is an impotent threat to them as well. Most people don’t make dating, sex, and relationship decisions based on politics and ideology. And when they do, they don’t do it long term. This is an impotent threat even for a gamer that has a harem of women.
A central fallacy of dating advice, or even just dating, sex, and relationship issues in general, that most people engage in is deriving their ideas on the subject from their preferred political ideology and not observation and scientific testing. This is true in the so called manosphere, on Dr. Manginalove’s website, feminist websites, etc. (This is a subject I will discuss more at some point in the future.) Thus, all these groups think that they can make threats to men denying them dating, sex, & relationships based on their political ideology. Since people almost never base their dating/sex/relationship lives on a political agenda, such threats are impotent.
