there's a video of him literally advocating pederasty in his own words, and he himself has admitted to saying those words, but nope.

all media spin. don't worry about the pederast, he didn't do anything wrong, everyone else is just out to get him cause they don't like him. nothing to see here, folks.

interesting to see we've got forum members here who seem inclined to rush to defend teenage-rape fans.

I didn't come in here bashing the left for this, I was just confused as to why I was questioned regarding which side of the political aisle I was criticizing - if they're both being dishonest and I'm criticizing said dishonesty, does it really need to be a Left/Right ordeal?

glad to see we've got forum members who rush to defend advocates of the rape of teenagers.

I'm fully aware (and have been for at least a year - this is not new information) of all interviews that clips have been circulated from and am willing to debate you regarding whether he supports raping teenagers.

CPAC should do a "modicum" of research? absolutely.

the only reason Milo was invited to speak was because Berkeley hippies protested him.

seems they chose the wrong martyr.

i don't see any dishonesty on "the Left." he's disliked for many, many, many other reasons.

I'm kind of bored with debunking the idea that Milo's a white nationalist, an antisemite, or a Nazi. That dishonesty coming from the Left is ceasing to warrant my time.

That said, innumerable left-leaning outlets (think: Salon, Huffpo, etc) have jumped on the "Milo supports pedophiles/is a pedophile" bandwagon. One need only look.

That said, sure - fuck CPAC too of course, as they're the source of this particular stand of bullshit this time.

But yeah, we're all dishonest when we call him a misogynist.

Quote:
“Most of the reason I went gay is so I didn’t have to deal with nutty broads. Imagine how much worse they’re going to get when the passive aggressive manipulation tactics stop working because the guy can get himself off with a thinner, hotter robot any time he wants to. They’re going to go mental. In the West, women are surging ahead into positions of dominance in the media, the arts, academia, politics, you name it. Some people will find this offensive, but: matriarchy is a problem for the rest of us. As feminist critic Camilla Paglia so memorably put it, if civilisation had been left in female hands, we would still be living in grass huts. When men start checking out en masse, as is already happening, you can say good-bye to all of society’s best astrophysicists, mathematicians, philosophers, composers and chess players. Scientific progress will effectively stall, because men are just as happy beating a video game as they are solving the riddles of the universe — and they’ll take the entertainment option if they have no interest in impressing women. Women will not take men’s places in these disciplines, because there simply aren’t enough women with IQs over 120. Again, sorry if you find that offensive, but it’s just a fact. IQ isn’t a perfect measure, by any means, but it’s the best gauge we have of whether someone can perform the higher-level functions needed to be a game-changing scientist or transcendently brilliant artist.”

I'm a fan of Milo, certainly. That isn't to say I agree with everything he says, but honestly, it's rather apparent that neither does he. His schtick is a little deeper than that, as far as I can tell.

ok, well, this is pretty lazy. Salon! Huffpo! you expect a higher degree of virtue out of the Left, then?

i looked, and found this on HuffPo, seems pretty fair:

Quote:
Yiannopoulos’ racism, xenophobia, sexism and transphobia have been well-documented for quite some time. In 2016, he subjected Leslie Jones to a horrific tirade of abuse that resulted in him being permanently banned from Twitter. That same year he compared Black Lives Matter to the KKK. Just last year he claimed trans people are “confused” about their “sexual identity” and are “disproportionately involved” in sex crimes. He is openly anti-Muslim and misogynistic. (Even as I attempt to type this list, I’m overwhelmed by the sheer mass of horrible and bigoted examples to choose from.)

But it was his seeming defense of pedophilia that went too far for his far-right base ― an idea that seems nauseatingly close to the classically ancient conservative, homophobic myth that gay people are pedophiles.

The reasons why it took this long to actually bring down Milo are complicated, but also obvious. Yiannopoulos, like other homonationalistic white gay men who are now troublingly the face of gay conservatism, have become props and tools for conservatives. And these men are happy to oblige, in return for the power that this position begets.

The very fact that they are men who have sex with men gives them a permissibility to be more outrageous and more incendiary in their language and ideas. They are given more space to push the boundaries of racist, problematic language because they occupy a unique position in the conservative contingent ― one of minimal disenfranchisement while still embodying all the markers of power and privilege.
the only reason Milo is anywhere is because 1) Bannon, 2) Berkeley protests, 3) being able to point to a gay, Jewish writer/speaker seems to deflect, at least in the minds of supporters, the absolutely fair criticisms of white supremacy leveled at Breitbart and the swamp from which Trump crawled out of.

seems it's blown up in their faces.

You're taking this in the way you would take it if a politician had said it, rather than a performance artist/provocateur.

Do you not think this reads as, to some degree, tongue in cheek, or do you think some subjects just can't be tackled in a lighthearted manner?

Re: the IQ distribution - honestly this is just a fact. There're more men on the higher ends of the IQ range, just as there're more men on the lower end of the IQ range. As a rule of thumb - purely statistically speaking, not saying that individual exceptions don't abound - it appears that men are more around the edges of the IQ spectrum while women congregate in the middle.

If you can understand how he takes a controversial but true statistic and spins it in the most troll-y, triggering and outrageous way humanly possible (with tongue firmly in cheek), you'll have grasped the performance art show on display.

Thanks for mansplaining that to us dumb broads here at FYM in language that we can understand.

maybe you should actually watch the video? obviously you haven't if that's your take on this. and then you go on to whine about "media spin", that's fucking rich.

"pedophilia is not a sexual attraction to somebody is 13 years old who is sexually mature. pedophilia is attraction to children who have not reached puberty, pedophilia is attraction to people who don't have functioning sex organs yet, who have not gone through puberty, who are too young to be able to understand their bodies - that is not what we're talking about here."

the obvious and easy implication here is that above the age of 13, or "sexual maturity", teenagers are fair game (aka "stuck my dick in a 14 year old, but they seemed sexually mature to me so it's okay!"). he's splitting hairs on the technical definition of a word to justify an adult sleeping with teenagers, point blank.

this isn't a "regret the word choice" moment, kellyanne. this is him spending five and a half full fucking minutes going on about the potential benefits to teenage boys from being raped by priests or older men.

how can you possibly be defending this??

edit: after a bit of thought, i'll retract the implication i made in this post as it wasn't called for or justified. it was typed out in haste. i apologize.

Come now, we were having a seemingly intelligent back-and-forth -- debate my points or don't, but playing the "I'm not being taken serious bc vagina even though this vagina allows me to read these words more clearly than your penis would allow you to!" is below you.

Am I disrespecting your intellect in this exchange? I don't believe that I am, as I've long considered you easily one of the top 5 smartest posters on this forum. I have no doubt that, considering your career success, you're a more intelligent person than I -- I'm not trying to insult you here. Do me the kindness of engaging with me in the good faith that I'm attempting to engage with you in.
