I despise Twitter for several reasons. That the character limit is one of them, but people posting thousand word essays 280 characters at a time is an even bigger one.

I sometimes see people preface a tweet with (1/2) if it's just barely too long.

Of course, I once saw Reihan Salaam preface a tweet with (1/6) which is really a sign you should just post on your blog.

The only thing dumber than the sex strike are the people it’s driving to self-own. Behold the “individual rights activist” who gets bonus points for also claiming this was “nature’s design,” lol:

Ha! The "individual rights" activist is also a MGTOW. And he kept digging his hole ever deeper:

Scott Gurstein: Your blind insistence that my comment was about myself and my own sex life is duly noted. You are wrong about that, of course. It was about men and women generally, not about me. But your insistence is nonetheless noted, thank you.

"warkity": Women enjoy sex. All the scientific studies show this. And men who don't have their head up their arses know this.

Scott Gurstein: You will excuse me if I don't take your word for it. Actions, and in-actions speak louder than words.

I'll admit to a polite curiosity about the limited circumstances under which women supposedly tolerate sex.

Also, while 'tolerate' is obviously the operative word in his claim, I can't help but wonder what the alternative to 'limited circumstances and timeframes' would be. 🤔

I was going to guess "Only if they wanna have a baby," but perusing this self-owner's Twitter feed shows the answer is actually “Opening up sexually to limited types of high social value, high achieving men is part of the "limited circumstances" component." (That's only one small part of a longer thread which must be seen to be believed.

Or possibly he can get laid but only because he found some poor girl with issues that he can exploit via destroying her self-worth to the point that she'll desperately try to please him into giving her external validation. If he's not an incel it's just because he's figured out how to make himself the incel image of a chad. He's a different kind of misogynist only because he's become a successful predator - if he's not trying to deflect from his own failures on that front.
