Enriching Vibrants? WTF?

I thought Dave Futrelle was pulling an April Fool’s joke for a moment. He’s got post up, full of quotes, on these conversations racist MRAs are having about Enriching Vibrants. That phrase sounds like great name for a New Age band, but no…it is apparently a term of art for having sex with immigrants or non-white people. I think. Their scribblings are so incoherent and badly written, and they are so incapable of making a simple clear point, that I have no idea what they could actually be talking about.

But Futrelle’s links are valid. I looked at those sites, and the “vibrating enrichers” stuff is only a small part of the offensiveness flourishing in the Men’s Rights cesspit of the internet.

Unless…could it be…are the MRAs just the grandest, most elaborate, extended April Fool’s joke ever?

    It looks like racism/sexism/dumbfuckery is entering a Dadaist period. Or a Timecube period.

    Enriching vibrants are educated stupid.

  2. joed says

    If you think voting for a democrat is going to make things better then you have joined the party.
    The system is all the way broken. Voting for the “lesser of 2 evils” is evil in itself. It is what has created the stupid, hateful, murderous system you have.
    A vote against the incumbent will help to create a system with justice and concern for all people.

    Enriched as in enriched uranium? I worry that, like the members of “militias,” the sad jerks who frequent MRA blogs will develop a false sense that their viewpoint is acceptable and act out.

  4. DaveL says

    Does it sound disingenuous to anyone else to rant and obssess about how you’d never fuck someone because you disapprove of their taste in sexual partners? If it were sincere, Wouldn’t that be a problem that’s already solved itself?

  5. Eris says

    Ah, now I am facing a dilemma. If I meet one of these men, should I (a virgin) lie and say I’m enriching vibrants just to get them to declare me “unfuckable?” Because I really don’t want these guys thinking that it might be a good idea for them to try to initiate sex with me. It’s like a litmus test for assholery!

  6. carolw says

    And these douchenozzles can tell that the women have slept with immigrants how? I think there’s some grade-a rationalization going on for why they can’t get laid, not why they won’t.

  7. Part-Time Insomniac, Zombie Porcupine Nox Arcana Fan says

    I wonder if I should show this to the parents at work. As if they don’t have enough to worry about already. OTOH, maybe it would mean less headache in the future when their kids start dating.

  8. says

    I’m confused.

    Is it also doing enriching vibrants if you exchange the body fluids in their home country?

    And I also thought women actually only ever fucked rich alpha-dudes for the child support.
    How come they’re doing poor immigrants now, too?

    Must be my pink fluffy ladybrains.

    Eris
    Don’t worry. Probably the very thought that “non-white” or “immigrant” wouldn’t be a dealbreaker suffices.

  9. lotharloo says

    This is not hate, nor is this stopping women from doing what they want to do.
    They chose to be enriched by vibration, they are totally free to do that.

    It is stopping us from fucking the glow in the dark enriched vibration loving womanhoods… nothing else, nothing more.

    I think I can hear many sighs of relief.

  10. Eris says

    Giliell

    On a more serious note, I really have tried tactics like that. Unfortunately, it has been my experience that this just leads to the racists trying to convince me that it should be a dealbreaker. You see, I’m still Pure(TM) so if they can just get through to me, then they’ll have another uterus for their White Baby manufacturing program!

    Maybe I just need to learn to be more of a bitch to them? I tend to default to polite and non-confrontational when I’m nervous, but that doesn’t make the assholes leave me alone. Yeah, maybe I need bitch training.

    The most beautiful woman in the world loses her charm after mixing. She’ll sleep with anything. Included are Heidi Klum, Nicole Kidman, and many of the people adapting negro babies.

    I’m sure they’ll be so upset.

    I once stayed with a friend who had mentioned to this guy she’d started dating, who turned out to be a racist nightmare, that a previous boyfriend had been black. He’d responded with rage, and was periodically driving slowly by her house.

    Were it not for that, I’d recommend telling one of these idiots who’s bothering you that you’ve slept with someone from one or more groups they appear to hate, true or not, to get them to go away. That’s guy’s actions and the vicious way they talk about women, though, makes it seem too risky.

  12. says

    Blech. I’m not surprised. Male supremacism (I refuse to dignify these people by calling them “men’s rights activists”, since they don’t give a flying fuck about anyone’s rights; they’re about reinforcing oppression of women) is part of the exact same mindset as racism and anti-immigrant views.

  13. laurie says

    It took a while to figure out what was being said, it reads like a google translation of an unknown language, but are they saying that immigrant men who don’t wear tailored suits have vibrating cocks?

    “enriched by vibrating cock”

    Why haven’t I known about these until now? Do you have to put in batteries? Do the men complaining not have battery compartments?

    QFT.

    The common factor is billious, votriolic hatred – hatred of women, hatred of homosexuals, hatred of ethnic minorities – bigots like this seem to be in a perpetual state of rage fueled by the fact that their privilege is not as ironclad and unassailaible at they would like it to be.

    That maybe, just maybe, the days when they could treat women like disposeable subhuman sex-toys, demonise non-whites, and engage in casual homophobia in a bid to prove their ‘alpha male’ credetials with impunity, are coming to an end, and they obviously simply cannot handle that possibility.

    What worries me is that, when a concentration of these jerks get together, they feed one another’s delusions and paranoia to the point where the most far gone among their number might be tempted to act upon it.

  15. piranhaintheguppytank says

    It’s April 1st.

    This is the day I like to call: “Most Likely To Be Pissed Off Trying To Use The Internet Day.”

    It’s amazing how the internet can take once popular traditions and beat them to death like a language stickler at an octopus lovers convention.

    It used to be that pranksters once played upon their victims’ ignorance of the date, selling the joke with the proclamation “April Fools!”

    But with the internet, the date is often prominently displayed on web pages. So unless one is either (1) not paying attention or (2) possesses as many brain cells as a plate of moldy bratwurst (like, for example, creationists and Rick Santorum supporters), one is unlikely to be fooled by the inevitable cyber-shenanigans.

  16. Amphiox says

    If you think voting for a democrat is going to make things better then you have joined the party.

    Voting for a democrat will more or less keep the status quo. Voting for anything else right now will immediately make things 10 times worse.

    There is no dilemma here.

    The system is all the way broken. Voting for the “lesser of 2 evils” is evil in itself.

    No it is not. It is the first and absolutely necessary step required to fix the system. Of course if you do not persevere and go on and complete all the other necessary steps afterwards, then it is a waste of time. But none (absolutely NONE) of any of those other steps has any chance of working at all, unless you first complete this required first step.

    A vote against the incumbent will help to create a system with justice and concern for all people.

    No, it will not. Votes AGAINST anything NEVER help create ANYTHING. Votes AGAINST things are wholly and solely destructive. Always.

    In order to create something you have to vote FOR something.

  17. Louis says

    So wait…this douchebaggins considers women who have had penetrative sex with an individual from certain immigrant groups to be unfuckable?

    I…have…no…words.

    Okay I have a few. I’m not surprised that some knuckle dragging pissant has managed to successfully combine his racism and his misogyny. In fact I’ve encountered this in my wife’s own family. My wife’s family is from…let’s just say somewhere in Asia where people have decent tans…and some of them give our good old English home grown racists and misogynists a run for their money. And that’s just the women. As you can imagine, her marrying a mutt like me was incredibly popular with these individuals and we were treated to some SPECTACULAR racist infused misogynist treatise. Happily, I had a quiet word and certain people formed the view that, if they really had to have these opinions, that expressing them in my or my wife’s presence would cause certain privileges to be revoked.

    Yeah, we know. Apparently, you aren’t the least bit familiar with MRA/PUA/Game assholery. I’d *love* to call such shit a joke, but unfortunately, it’s no joke.

  19. Just_A_Lurker says

    I’m kind of surprised you guys didn’t know. Then again I have meet these people face to face. They are just straight up with their hatred. Especially when they are trying to hit on a fat chick to get some strange only to find her child and black ex-boyfriend right there. Laughing at them and saying “Like I would fuck you when I can choose a huge black dick” makes it worse. Much much worse. In hindsight I wouldn’t have said that for fear of escalation but it just came out when I realized what happened. I didn’t even know he was hitting on me at first. I guess “I like pizza rolls too” is a pick up line now. LOL.

    I find brief joy knowing there is nothing about me that makes me “fuckable” to them. But it’s mostly hatred that they are out there hunting and making victims.

    Definitely nothing to do with April 1st.

  20. Jules says

    And I also thought women actually only ever fucked rich alpha-dudes for the child support.
    How come they’re doing poor immigrants now, too?

    Because they vibrate. *haz a tingle*

    But with the internet, the date is often prominently displayed on web pages.

    Well, Captain Genius, why don’t you look at the fucking date stamped on Manboobz, because this shit is from yesterday.

    The Pharyngula facebook group had a regular ol’ laugh riot/vomitfest mocking this then. And no, we don’t have Way-Back Machines on PET.

  21. newname says

    “Enriching vibrants” is pretty clearly a poetic description of all men, women, and toys they are intimidated by.

    Finnish people and minorities in business suits? Romney’s role models –> NOT “enriching vibrants.”

    Minorities listening to rap music, practicing Islam, not wearing a “decent style,” being a vibrating sex toy –> Scary thing makes my penis insecure! It’s an “enriching vibrant!”

  22. newname says

    I also want to emphasize the creepy possessiveness displayed by immigrants who resent “losing” women of their ethnicity to inter-racial relationships.

    Labeling people “Vibrants” and “unfuckables” reeks of this kind of resentment.

  23. says

    For those who didn’t read the Manboobz post, the reference is to a nuclear meltdown: Enriched uranium, vibrating earth. They charmingly refer to this as “Fuckushima.”

    I’ve heard more than one racist say, “I’d never fuck a girl who fucked a n****r.” The sentiment is not merely racist but misogynist, because the woman is perceived as property that is “soiled” by sexual contact with a “lesser” man.

  24. Jules says

    They charmingly refer to this as “Fuckushima.”

    Because it was totes just some vibrating that happened in Japan.

  25. says

    I also want to emphasize the creepy possessiveness displayed by immigrants who resent “losing” women of their ethnicity to inter-racial relationships.

    Yeah, man, ’cause everyone knows non-immigrant white guys never, ever do that sort of thing. Nope.

  26. says

    I also want to emphasize the creepy possessiveness displayed by immigrants who resent “losing” women of their ethnicity to inter-racial relationships.

    What the fuck is this? This sounds to me like a racist trope. Care to show some specific evidence of the phenomenon you’re describing?

  27. says

    To me, any white girl who kneels before a black American and puts his cock in her mouth is completely tainted trash. There’s a level of submissive degeneracy that I cannot cross. It’s a very dark, quasi-rape issue actually. …

    Today, a good 10% of these Millennial sluts are actively chasing their negro a la Hollywood star, except instead of adopting one they sleep with one…until he murders them – or just beats them badly.

    A whole treatise could be written on the psychology behind the current phenomenon, one that would not please feminist women as it would reveal the masochistic element in women’s sexuality. Personally, I’m only dating girls who don’t complain when I occasionally use the “n-word.” It’s a way to vet them without doing some creepy background checks. I do not hate blacks; I just don’t want to breed with them.

    Oh yeah, totes it’s the immigrants.

  28. says

    Ing:

    Oh yeah, totes it’s the immigrants.

    Of course. White, red-blooded ‘mericans would never, ever do shit like that. No sirree. You can’t use what they write agin’ ‘em either, ya hear!?

  29. says

    Seriously. When you’re talking about a group of people who are already the targets of racist oppression and lies, vague evidenceless claims about members of said group displaying “creepy possessiveness” are not helping. To say the least. This kind of shit plays right into the hands of the racist anti-immigrant movement. Not to mention the stupid generalization: do you think that all immigrants come from the same culture or behave the same way?

  30. Jules says

    I question why you feel this is limited or even notably stronger in ‘immigrants’?

    The original poster is himself an immigrant, but the followup comments go on to make it clear that to those dudes, it’s not so much “immigrant” as it is “brown.”

    And, being that the OP is an immigrant himself, and given the context that starts his rant (a would-be 9 walks by), it’s safe to assume that he’s referring to not only women in his own immigrant community but also to women in the country he now lives in (i.e., not immigrant women).

  31. Jules says

    I do not hate blacks; I just don’t want to breed with them.

    This is the one I keep getting hung up on. I’m just wondering if my pale ginger self is now totally and permanently black simply because I’ve had some black on the inside.

    This bullshit is about race traitors. It’s also very much about white supremacy. Note that the OP’s “acceptable” immigrants are those who behave in what he believes to be “white” ways. As a matter of fact, the term enriching vibrants itself is a mockery of those who embrace their home culture even after immigrating to a new (in his mind better, white) one.

    (My quoting Ing was indicating that I agree with the question; what followed wasn’t a response to it but an addition to it. Sorry for the confusion.)

  32. eline says

    It’s not an April Fools joke, unfortunately. The guy who wrote it just translated Finnish literally into English, and his Finnish original phrasing is insider lingo. The resulting translation naturally wouldn’t make any sense to non-Finnish speakers. Me and another Finnish speaker already discussed the possible meanings in the comments section at Manboobz, I’ll link to the relevant comments (I am “A Finnish emigrant”; had to pick some name as I’d only been lurking Manboobz until now…):

    So, yeah. I think the guy should learn the language before he attempts to use it. That’s what they always tell immigrants, learn the fucking language.

  33. says

    I do not hate blacks; I just don’t want to breed with them.

    biology fail; or massive insecurity manifesting in fearing that they’ll be cheated on with a black dude and end up raising a “black” kid with their prrrrecious, prrrrecious white money.

  34. eline says

    Why do these MRA always boil everything down to breeding. They talk about themselves and others like they’re grooming a line for the American Kennel Club

    It’s not like their genes are the ones women desire, anyway. I understand most of them are self-identified betas, who aim to be alphas, that’s what they need to learn The Game for. So by their own principles they should be weeding their own genes out of the pool to give more room for better material.

  35. No One says

    The big ethnic penis. As soon as white women have it white boys never measure up. Poor fellows. All their charm, whit, and wealth are for naught. Tragedy!

  36. DLC says

    I was a bit mystified at the word use, so I went and looked on Urban Dictionary.
    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=vibrant

    [sue me. I'm too lazy to write a proper anchor.]
    According to that source (which is by no means exhaustive or authoritative) vibrant could be taken to mean anyone from a non-white neighborhood.

    It’s a sad commentary on the state of race/gender relations. I also have to agree with Walton @15.

  37. says

    What is this I don’t even.

    Out of cheese error.

    Brain has refused to take this in.

    LALALALALALALA!!!

    ooh I saw some words

    “enriched by vibrating cock”
    Japanese, vibrant, vibrations, fuck

    OK, this is sounding quite good now. Is it waterproof? Does it have tentacles? Is it as cute as the one on the other sex toy thread?

    SHUT UP! DON’T HARSH MY MELLOW!

  38. newname says

    #29-31: does “immigrants who resent “losing” women of their ethnicity to inter-racial relationships” mean all immigrants? Please read a sentence in its entirety before flaming.

    Walton wants evidence. There’s a good example of one such creep in the manboobz article that this blog post is all about. Search for the phrase “I am an immigrant”. That stood out vividly to me because I’ve personally run into a few guys like that in real life.

  39. Agent Silversmith, Post Palladium Isotope says

    As I read those quotes, I could feel my brain fighting not to understand what those scumlings were on about. That trusty hunk’o’grey knows poison when it perceives it.

    It’s just another example of how suffused with magical thinking the whole MRA ethos is. They claim to have a special insight into the psychology of women, but everything they say suggests they’ve never been near a real one. Still, I guess it’s hard to study the target of your obsession through a cloud of mace while nursing a busted pair of shins.

  40. says

    Agent Silversmith:

    Why on earth are the guys always assuming that their dick is the most interesting part in having sex?

    Men who are fixated on their penis do have a size problem…their brain is small and under-used.

  44. Louis says

    Giliell,

    Why on earth are the guys always assuming that their dick is the most interesting part in having sex?

    I could give you a long and psychologically well informed answer, but instead I offer you these jokes which will grant you immediate insight.

    1) I gave my girlfriend an orgasm, but she just spat it back in my face.

    2) My girlfriend cannot orgasm through penetrative sex. Luckily, I can.

    Taken from a Jimmy Carr video. Oh yes, this stuff is still “funny” in 2011 (it’s last year’s video). Now, I could argue that Jimmy was being ironic, self mocking, but, well, I’m not so sure much of his audience got that even if he did.

    Those should tell you all you need to know. Add in the fact that there seems to be a common belief that lesbians need just one proper good shag with a proper man* to “cure them”.

    Also, there are complicated things to do with Man Fee-Fees** and penis size.***

    Wiggling the wee-wee back and forward feels good. When you are conditioned to not regard the other person involved in the wiggling as a full human being, why should you care if the wiggling does it for them too?

    Misogyny: It’s all about the penis.

    Louis

    * I am reliably informed that a “proper shag” involves fifteen seconds of sweaty, flatulent penetration with something smaller than the average vaccination needle. And that a “proper man” is an unwashed, uneducated, overweight person with personal hygiene issues you can hear.

    ** IMPORTANT!

    *** VERY IMPORTANT! Also involves fee-fees.

  45. Louis says

    Giliell,

    No, I think they’re telling the truth, I just think they are overestimating the {ahem} contribution that their dickie can make.

    They…they…who am I kidding…we* really believe that wee-wee in hoo-hoo is something everyone needs.

    Louis

    * Okay so I don’t actually believe this. Well, I do, but only for Comedy Purposes. Which is a different matter entirely. I mean, for fuck’s sake, it’s obviously not true, so believing it must be a good thing because then that can be mocked…wait…did I just prove Jesus? Oh dear, this “enriching vibrants” thing has me all confused.

  46. says

    Thanx, Louis, your explenations are very helpfull.
    You know, before I just thought what is it with some of those guys, have they been dropped on their heads as babies and then you come along, explain it nicely and suddenly it all makes sense:
    Yes, they have been dropped on their heads as babies.

  47. Louis says

    Giliell,

    Oh I don’t know, I think these guys are fairly normal guys who haven’t been introduced to the revolutionary idea that the universe is not pivoted upon their dick.

    I am…was…am…will be…was…no idea…one of them!

    Seriously. Every day in every way you get the idea rammed into your head that being male is great and being female is a little bit, you know, crap. Being a (broadly speaking, I’m not a Kinsey extreme!) hetero male is just “normal”. Everything is yours. Don’t even get me started on being a western hetero male.

    I perhaps have more sympathy for “normal guys” who are clueless about their privilege and the message that society gives them than you. After all, I am VAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASTLY less on the receiving end of the patriarchy and male-as-default paradigm’s joyous output. But I think it’s also because I have more insight. I’ve been (I hate using the past tense here!) there.

    These guys just do not get challenged on this stuff. They’re not blameless of course, none of us are, but it is strangely revolutionary to try to consider a different perspective. I know it shouldn’t be and for millions it isn’t, but it seems to be the case that it is.

    I wish these guys were demons, evil, vile. They just aren’t, they’re ordinary. Just like me. And that is orders of magnitude more terrifying.

    Louis

  48. says

    Louis
    On a serious note, I do have some sympathy for the guys. I know it’s not easy being one, with all those conflicting messages and expectations they’re getting.
    We’re living in a half-changed world (to paraphrase Cordelia Fine) and we’re often juggeling both sides in a desperate attempt not to lose shit.
    I’m sorry to see my daughter’s boy-friends to have their gender policed thoroughly and their imagination killed by stereotypes about “how boys are and what they wear”.
    Having said that, this applies to the average “good guy” who, when pointed out that he’s standing on my toe, will lift his foot and say sorry, he didn’t mean to hurt me.
    Privilege is hard to understand when you’ve never had the short end of the stick, I get that.
    But it’s a shame that most women know exactly how the male genitalia look like and even where the prostate is while many men have no idea where they should start looking in order to find a clitoris.
    And it doesn’t apply shit to those Spearhead-misogynists who, when pointed out that they’re standing on my toe will move weight to that foot and tell me to shut up or they’ll stomp harder.
    Merged in an unholy union with Stormfront to Spearfront or Stormhead or whatever the fuck and my patience and understanding has died off some 10 years ago.

    Giliell,

    Merged in an unholy union with Stormfront to Spearfront or Stormhead or whatever the fuck and my patience and understanding has died off some 10 years ago.

    Ooohhhhhh yes.

    Sorry, my bad for not being clear. My sympathy extends to “regular clueless blokes”, like myself I guess. (How generous!)

    It does NOT extend to the Stormfront/Spearhead MRA racist fuckers. It never will. These guys are actively prejudiced. They are stepping on your toe and meaning every ounce, and like you say will step harder if you complain. My sympathy, such as it is, extends only to the accidental, passive toe-stepper.

    As for the lady’s Clematis.* I am lead to believe that if a gentleman is sufficiently curious it can be found quite easily between Southampton and Kew Gardens. Towards the top of Kew Gardens where the tropical plants are kept if I remember rightly.
