Katherine Maher discovers incels and the Manosphere

Maher (and a lot of others) are just now discovering the Manosphere. Some of us have known about it for a looong time, but as it says on the thread, this time it has been explained by a man.

This thread is now some 500 comments long, after the initial “tweet storm”; nobody reads it before they comment, so it’s a sort of hodge podge of the same comments over and over.

If you click on this embedded tweet, the whole thread should open up, or you can read it below the fold:

If you are not familiar with David Futrelle, check out his blog on the subject. http://www.wehuntedthemammoth.com/2018/04/24/incels-hail-toronto-van-driver-who-killed-10-as-a-new-elliot-rodger-talk-of-future-acid-attacks-and-mass-rapes/

I can only take a little bit of this at a time, but he is a sort of self-appointed Eliot Ness on the subject — he has been following these people for years.

The thread seems to be loading slow, so here is the initial text, mostly, and the links for recommended reading.
