Vox Day: Still a Massive Misogynist Douchebag

The Washington Post recently published an article about the cesspool of misogynist harassment, rape and death threats online and how it’s making some feminists clam up to avoid the risk. Vox Day, who doesn’t think women should even have the right to vote, thinks this is a splendid development and wants more of it:

What they call “harassment” and “abuse” is seldom anything more than free speech answering free speech. They have a right to speak their piece, and we have a right to speak right back. We have a right to speak back with all of the contempt, disdain, and loathing that we feel for their insane and societally suicidal ideas.

Oh, you can criticize them all you want. What you can’t do is threaten them with rape or murder, which happens all day, every day to huge numbers of women.

Open up your hate and let it pour over them. Don’t think for even one nanosecond that they don’t deserve it every bit of the criticism, of the contempt, of the disdainful dismissal that overwhelms them. They are trying to destroy Western civilization. They are trying to destroy marriage and civil society. They are advocates of child murder. They are advocates of a philosophy that makes National Socialism look merciful and Communism practical and Fascism coherent by comparison. Do not hold back. Speak back twice as hard. Speak back until they fall silent.

Funny, when feminists say that these sexist assholes are trying to silence them, they usually deny. It’s almost refreshing to see Vox Day come right out and admit it.

Women are particularly susceptible to shame. So shame them relentlessly. Shame those who agree with them. Mock their white knights who rush in to save them.

A “white knight,” in the vapid, terribly insecure world of men like Vox Day, means anyone who isn’t as much of a misogynist as him. Mock away, asshole. I wear it like a badge of honor. Oh, and fuck you.

Did I mention fuck you?

Seriously, fuck you.

    Scratch the surface of any religion and the first two things you find are Misogyny and self hatred.

    I’m a little unclear. Should Vox Day go fuck himself, or should he simply go fuck himself? I think he should go all out and fuck himself.

    Vox Day: Still a Massive Misogynist Douchebag

    In other shocking news, the sun rose in the east this morning, a bear was observed defecating in a wooded area, and Pope Francis confirmed he is a Catholic.

    The self-declared MRAs and their respective organizations that have been recently getting mainstream media attention lately [1], other than this WaPo article, don’t seem at all motivated by religious dogma. (Vox Day’s been ignored in those publications.)

    People like Vox Day make more atheists in a day than Dawkins and Meyers do in a year.

    In misogyny land a “white knight” is someone who tries to rush in and help a woman — as part of a strategy to get sex for themselves. Because in misogyny land everything is about getting sex. Trying to be a decent human being: it’s a strategy to get sex. Bathing: strategy to get sex. Etc. The creeps are utterly obsessed with getting sex and they don’t realize that some of us aren’t; it’s nietzschean-level projection.

    The funny thing, to me, is that the kind of sex they think they want: pressured or manipulated, preying on the insecure or tipsy — that’s the worst (in terms of overall fun) sex you can have. It’s basically masturbating using someone else’s body. They ought to try having sex with a switched-on turned-on intelligent and creative partner; it’d completely ruin their world to discover that quality, not quantity, is where the fun is.

    Except it’s often the shitty libertarian entitled rapey kind.

    What you can’t do is threaten them with rape or murder, which happens all day, every day to huge numbers of women.

    Given how many of his ilk manage to do that with impunity, I’d say he can, which is why he’s being so jubilant.

    That’s a sociopath’s worldview in a nutshell: “Everyone is like me, therefore Everyone holds everyone else in contempt, therefore every time someone display basic decency it’s because s/he wants to obtain material gratifications in exchange

    You find it “refreshing” that someone doesn’t feel any need to hide his most vile impulses? Would you also find raw sewage a nice thirst-quencher?

  • dugglebogey

    Is “Vox Day” supposed to mean voice of today? Because it sounds like a voice from a day in the 1920s.

  • theguy

    “We have a right to speak back with all of the contempt, disdain, and loathing that we feel”

    Voice of Shit also has the right to jump off a bridge. I know which right I’d rather he exercised. I’d also note these are probably the only emotions that Talking Wingnut Poo ever feels.

    “Open up your hate and let it pour over them”

    What happened to the right-wing-cockroaches saying they “hate the sin but love the sinner?”

    These pieces of shit have a deliberate strategy of threats and harassment against anybody they hate. It’s not limited to feminists, but they are the main target. Freedom to right-wingers means they get to cause as much damage as they feel like, and if you complain or restrain them, they whine “persecution” which is then taken as a justification to keep causing even more damage. Forever.

    It’s a parodic form of “Vox Dei” – the voice of god.

    By the way, you should expect to be contacted by the attorneys representing the douchebags – they want to send you a cease and desist for invidious comparison, they do not want people saying Vox Day is a “douchebag” because douchebags aren’t that bad.

    Raging Bee, #9: You find it “refreshing” that someone doesn’t feel any need to hide his most vile impulses?

    Yeah, I long for the day when racists, misogynists, and assholes in general had to keep their assholery hidden, using special code words like “crime,” “drugs,” and “special rights and entitlements” to talk about about their fears of unpopular minorities lest they be called out for the bigoted assholes they are. That these kinds of opinions have become so mainstream that people, including our elected officials, can say these things openly without, it seems, suffering serious consequences is the opposite of refreshing. It’s kind of frightening.

  • Anne Fenwick

    I believe that when he comes right out and says hate speech is basically free speech, he may be technically correct for his own jurisdiction. Okay, so maybe we’ll be forced to accept that he and his followers can do all the hate speaking they want on his own blog. What we really need is a way of keeping it out of the more public parts of the internet.

    NB – I think he should be entitled to express his nefarious and backward opinions, just not entitled to harass other speakers and drown other opinions in public spaces.

    Sadly, he pretends to be smart, besmirching all actually smart people in the process.

    Oh, and fuck you vox day (lower case on purpose).

  • Kermit Sansoo

    So, Vox Day is saying – among other things – that he can’t hold the interest of any woman who is intelligent, decent, strong, or self-assured. Huh. I wouldn’t think that would be the kind of thing a sex-obsessed adolescent would brag about.

    Guess even the blow up dolls find him too mean, mad, and vulgar.
