Retraction Watch readers may recall that in 2014, publisher Springer and IEEE were forced to retract more than 120 conference proceedings because the papers were all fakes, written by the devilishly clever SCIgen program and somehow published after peer review.
So perhaps it was inevitable that fake computer-generated peer reviews were next.
In a chapter called “Your Paper has been Accepted, Rejected, or Whatever: Automatic Generation of Scientific Paper Reviews,” a group of researchers at the University of Trieste “investigate the feasibility of a tool capable of generating fake reviews for a given scientific paper automatically.” And 30% of the time, people couldn’t tell the difference. “While a tool of this kind cannot possibly deceive any rigorous editorial procedure,” the authors conclude, “it could nevertheless find a role in several questionable scenarios and magnify the scale of scholarly frauds.”
And yet the Church continues to wonder why men are leaving in droves. If we now return to ponder the family home this information may give us an inkling of what is going on. With dysfunctional teaching such as this the only outcome can be a dysfunctional family unit. The modern day Church simply cherry picks parts of the bible that further its present-day trends while blithely ignoring all other contradictory teachings.
The very idea that women are almost sinless creatures that possess innate qualities of perfection that are only hampered by the evil patriarchy is beyond laughable in the face of all available evidence.
But this is the Church’s method of telling men to Shut Up! and listen to their female betters. Instead of the Church being a beacon for all men and women to follow, now the onus is on men to follow the beacon of women. Quite what the Church’s role in this is hard to qualify, given that if women are the pure power then it stands to reason that there is no need for a Church. Jesus could have come down from heaven and just said to everyone to do everything that Mary said because she’s got it all, baby.
That year a young 18 year old Italian lad, who had been training for a couple of years with us to pass his Italian guiding exam, started work with us as his first season as a rafting guide. I had a lot of time for him. He was mature for his age, he listened, and he worked hard. But the day that he stepped foot into his raft for the first time with no other guide sitting at his shoulder, to take his very first 6 customers rafting, that day he got paid exactly the same money as I did.
Which meant that all my experience, all of my skills, and all of the effort that I had put in to work around the world and improve my abilities, all of that was worth nothing in the eyes of my employer. It was not worth a single extra cent.
The only way that I could earn more than the new kid was to do more trips. And in fact that was how I was “rewarded.” Guides at the top of the guide roster received more trips than other guides. In other words, our reward for being the best, safest, and most dependable guides was to have to work harder by putting in more hours.
One day when we had a trip with very high water, my boss mentioned to me how happy he was that I was going on the river. “When I know that you’re on the river I can do other things like go to the post office and do other little jobs. Because I know that things will go well on the river. I can relax.”
That is what he said to me. “Fine,” I replied. “So pay me more. I mean, surely that’s worth something to you.”
He looked positively alarmed at this suggestion and then he launched into a long spiel about how it would be “unfair to the other guides” if he paid me more than them.
Now here’s the funny part. Unfunny comedy and shit movies aside, all three of these women are terrible people in real life.
Amy Schumer once raped a drunk-out guy and gave a speech about it that got her a standing ovation. A few weeks ago, she went on Twitter to disavow a coworker and friend of hers simply because he believed that accused rapists deserve due process. Yea, how dare he suggest that men shouldn’t be locked up without evidence. A few months earlier, Lena Dunham(Not to be confused with Amy Schumer), released a memoir titled “Not that kind of girl” where she explicitly talks about sexually abusing her younger sister and luring her with sweets. In that same memoir, she told a made up story about a republican classmate in college named “Barry”, who according to Lena, raped her. When the real Barry decided to take legal action against her, she instructed her publisher to edit the book and take out the sections discussing her supposed interaction with him. And lets not forget how she attacked a football player on national television for not being sexually attracted to her. Which brings us to Sarah Silverman. Before Sarah dated Jimmy Kimmel and gained fame, she was just another try hard jobless comedian wanna-be, trying to get farther in life. In that time period, around 2001, she went to a comedy club and begged the owner to allow her a guest spot on his show. She wasn’t booked to perform on the show, but the club owner agreed and let her perform.
Several years later, in 2015, she appeared in a YouTube video talking about the already disproved gender wage gap. Of course, Sarah has never been paid less for the same work as a man, but she needed to be oppressed badly, so she decided to make up a false story. She talked about how she was once paid $10 for 15 minutes of stand up whereas her male counterparts made at least $60. She named the comedy club and its owner, which basically led to online Feminists organizing a boycott of the venue. Eventually, the comedy club owner fought back and told the true story. The story of how she was only paid less because she wasn’t booked to perform that night:
. . . . .
With so much evidence mounting against her, Sarah Silverman had no option but to come clean and confess that she made the story up. That’s the kind of person she is. She made up a false claim and publicly smeared the name of someone who lent her a hand in her time of need, just so she could play the victim.
Remember when “He” and “She” were the only pronouns in existence? Pepperidge farm remembers. “Preferred pronouns” are the latest wave of stupidity to have escaped the mental asylum that is Tumblr. Here’s how they work. Someone claiming to be “Genderfluid”(A scientific impossibility) might probably prefer “they/them/their” pronouns. A “Genderless”(Another scientific impossibility) person, would also most likely use “xe/xim/xis” pronouns and someone who identifies as “otherkin”(A mental disorder), might use “ve/vis/vir” pronouns. Basically, every time special snowflakes invent a new gender, the next logical step is find an appropriate pronoun for it. So as the total number of genders increase, we can expect to see more pronouns in the future. Refusal to use someone’s preferred pronoun will get you labeled a “bigot” or “Misgendering asshole” on the Internet.
And that’s cool and all, but it doesn’t end there. Like most rhetoric that Tumblr comes up with, being the narcissists that they are, they don’t feel accomplished unless they get to force their ideas on everyone else. Just a week ago, we reported on a story about how a College in Vermont was handing out “pronouns pins” to its students to start off the new academic year. In January of this year, New York city passed a law that would effectively fine people $250,000 for failing to use people’s preferred pronouns. Later on in May, a teacher in Oregon was given a $60,000 payout after she alleged that her coworkers had abused her by referring to her using inappropriate pronouns.
Tumblr isn’t just infecting the real world, they have already taken it over, and are now making it dance to their beat.
As always, I follow a model of long-term, consistent happiness. The typical man boy MGTOW model is the opposite. It’s one of anger, resentment, laziness, immaturity, loneliness, and often depression.
Today I’m going to respond to the arguments that these men, and men like them, have made over the years, those espousing a low-income, low-sex, dependent, boring, sad life (outside of video games, porn and cheeseburgers, that is). In this type of life, exciting work, Mission, travel, and sex with hot babes are replaced by Hot Pockets, breakfast cereal, video games, and bitching on manosphere sites about how horrible everything is.
I don’t expect to change any of these men’s minds today.
These guys have purposely decided to embark on a path of unhappiness and one article from me won’t change that.
Instead, today’s post is really aimed at those of you out there who are leaning in this direction. Hopefully I can help turn some of you away from the abyss before it’s too late.
MGTOW Argument Number 1: Living a life of achievement isn’t worth it anymore because women today aren’t the sweet, loyal, submissive sweethearts they used to be.
This is the argument I’ve heard the most from the man boys. As you can probably already tell, it doesn’t make any sense, and it’s upsetting that I have to take the time to explain why it doesn’t make sense. Yet that is what I shall do. (The things I do for you guys!)
Now let’s look at the stats. As I’ve said many times, since monogamy doesn’t work, the majority of men and women in free societies will cheat on their “monogamous” partners eventually, assuming the relationship/marriage lasts long enough, and you’re about to see this reflected in the stats. However, because of 50-70% divorce rates and 85% break up rates, many people tend to break up before cheating occurs.
In other words, since everyone hates long-term sexual monogamy, virtually everyone under the age of 60 in a relationship or marriage eventually has sex with someone else. It’s simply a question of whether or not they formally end the relationship with the first person before they fuck the second person. Sometimes they do (which is called a “divorce” or a “break up”) and sometimes they don’t (which is called “cheating” or “infidelity”). Ah, monogamy.
Because of all this, you need to remember that every statistic you ever see regarding cheating/infidelity is artificially low.
Many, if not most of these people are ending the relationship/marriage so they can have sex with someone else before they “cheat.” If your girlfriend fucks your brother, she cheated, but if she dumps you and then fucks your brother, she didn’t cheat at all, thus she won’t show up in these cheating statistics. The point is she still banged your brother.
If you two hadn’t broken up and had actually stayed together for 25 years (unlikely), the odds are overwhelming she would have eventually fucked your brother anyway. So the only reason she didn’t “cheat” in the first scenario was because she didn’t stay with you long enough to do so. Thus, the cheating stats are artificially lower in relation to actual human behavior and desires.
On the 14th of June, 2016, the US Senate passed an extensive $602 billion defense bill that included an amendment that would require women to register for the draft when they turn 18. To anyone who supports equality, this would obviously be a step forward, but to a lot of feminists online, this was just another way men were oppressing women. These women, you could say, were not too happy with the supreme court’s decision.
AS always, we bring you the most palpable of all the butthurt:
