I suck at time management and did not blow dry my hair before interviewing Paul Elam. Oops. Oh well.

    Good interview, you Judgy Bitch, you. I found your questions to be incisive, relevant, and necessary — not of a sort commonly raised, but that must be raised. I appreciate that you allowed Paul all the time he needed to answer each question comprehensively. The ol’ Socratic method, abbreviated for today’s audiences.

    Hi, JB. Well done the interview. May I suggest any or all of Stephen Baskerville, Bernard Chapin, Steve Moxon, Glenn Sacks, or Vox Day for subsequent interviews? All are knowledgeable, and certainly most of them would be personable and fascinating.

    Two things about the video:

    1) The banner advertising your name and website blocks much of the field of view. Having it come and go at intervals (like for 15 seconds every 2 minutes) would be much better IMO than having it up there constantly.

    2) You’re hard to see when dressed in all black. A lighter color would be more flattering and improve your communication.

    3) Feel free to have either you or the interviewee stand up and walk around at times.

    4) It’s apparent from contrasting skin tones you’ve gotten more than your share of sun over time. (Favorite gardening shirt? One-piece bathing suit?) Please cover up/dodge high-UV periods more effectively, so you’ll avoid pruning out/getting skin cancer, and will be there long-term for your family and adoring public.

    LOL, the fake concern troll is strong with this one. Had me going. I was about to go white knight on your ass (verbally) until I got to #3.

    Hah! My skin is pretty white and I have never been a particular fan of the sun – I wear a hat for 99% of the summer when I’m outside. I guess it’s just a shitty camera?

    But thanks for the comments.

    Good interview. I thought it was particularly humorous when you talked about women co-opting the movement and turning things around to make it about them. Women are naturally more inclined to words and non-violent problem resolution. That and their ability to form bonds with other women (a weird thing to witness) makes them a formidable ally or opponent. I would note as an example how you wanted to substitute ‘brute force’ for ‘violence’ in that earlier entry of yours. It wasn’t relevant to the discussion and means very little in the grand scheme of things, but you had an instinctual reaction to just the idea of violence and had to have the word changed to something nicer.

    Words are what women do well at, and if you can have some good wordsmiths on your side, great.

    Interestingly, it was words that first drew me to the judgybitch site. The AVfM website sucks balls as far as entertainment goes. Reading the AVfM articles is like reading any other news site on the internet. They’re good with facts and present their case in a solid, respectable format. It’s like being in a boardroom.

    Your site, however, doesn’t have near the content, but it does have biting sarcasm, humor, vulgar language and the occasional scantily-clad babe. What’s not to like about that combo? Sure, you don’t address much of what’s going on, but that’s simply because you are working within your personal constraints. Cool.

    Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals work, and you do Rule 5 very well.

    An interesting pair of interviews.

    On this side of the pond, a strongly held view by some is that American women “wear the trousers”; meaning, I guess, that they feel that men are regarded as second rate people.

    And here, sadly, there is the feeling that “everyday sexism” is on the rise in the UK, by which I mean the “slut-shaming” name-calling derogation of women; often this seems to start in school. It’s not at all clear to me why this should have happened.

    I’d also say that the idea of “equality” is misbegotten; women and men aren’t equal in many respects; they often think differently, men are (typically) physically bigger and stronger, women live longer, and so on. What really should be the aim is something like “equivalence” or “complementarity”, recognising that there are differences, but that difference does not mean superior or inferior.

    And thank you for introducing me to AVFM, I’d not heard of them beforehand.

    I’d also suggest interviewing Roger Devlin if you can get him. (He wrote the excellent “Home Economics” paper of 29 pages, available all over the internet.) Unfortunately, Daniel Amneus (author of the book “The Garbage Generation”) has passed away, or I’d list him too.

    Korhomme, why do you think that sluts shouldn’t be shamed? It’s only justice, given how they mess up multiple lives besides just their own.

    YW, JB.

    The UV-exposure comment was based upon how in the video, you appear quite clearly to have considerably darker skin in a wide swath just below your throat, ending lower down, near your neckline. I’m glad to hear that you are wiser about exposure to the sun than that would indicate, being just an artifact of the camera.

    (I’m a blonde myself, and VERY aware of what UV does to fair-skinned people.)

    The comment that men should keep it in their pants is not fair why don’t we use the comment that women should keep their skirts down If a woman say no to sex then she wouldn’t get pregnant, The man didn’t force here she consented to the sex if she give consent then it is her responsibility. If The man and woman is married then it is both their responsibility but if they are not married it is not the man’s fault in a case of rape by a man it is all the Man’s fault I just think the court system and judges are Gender bias in favour of women A woman can cheat on a man and leave him but he is still on the hook for paying child support, she will also get custody, according to how the court system works The man gets nothing out all this, We live in a world of only women’s rights Human rights is not really human rights, it is Women and Children rights, no rights for men FATHERHOOD, LIKE MOTHERHOOD IS NOT A CHOICE IT IS A LEGAL TRAP Date: Fri, 25 Apr 2014 23:51:09 +0000 To: shameb@msn.com

    Do sluts force men to have sex with them?

    As we know, they do sometimes, but calling such women “sluts” is a misnomer that can do nothing but cause confusion. They should be called what they are: rapists.

    The rest of the sluts, the ones who have consensual sex with willing men, should not be blamed anymore than the men they have sex with. Both of them make their choices, and they suffer the consequences.

    In other words, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
