Kronar writes


You must read this overheated paean to his semen by a pickup artist (or if you prefer, you can have Saruman read it aloud to you). This guy literally thinks his seed is so wonderful that women ought to be begging him for it.

But, excuse my bio-pedantry, there’s one part that I found factually annoying. It reflects a fundamental misunderstanding of basic reproductive biology and genetics.

kronar

My salty essence and genetic code is a gift from my father, and his father, and his father, and on it goes.  Its the sticky genetic code of self-sufficient men who have protected and provided for family, women and children.  Its the haplogroup of men who built civilization.  I have the genetic lineage of warriors, business owners, firefighters, blacksmiths, farmers, herders, poets, politicians, soldiers, artists and even chefs.  Hard jobs that help build the world, thinking jobs that help build a culture, they’ve all been done by men in my bloodline.  My ceiling for accomplishment is limitless.

That leaves out a significant fact. Approximately half of the genetic sequence in Mr Raving PUA’s sperm comes from his mother, and from her mother and his father’s mother, etc. Half of it is from the women who built civilization. I think that’s a fine thing, but I wonder; does he believe it dilutes the quality of his semen that it isn’t exclusively passed on from father to son?

(Sorry, passing semen from father to son is a really icky image.)

Further, half of his glorious seed will generate mere daughters. Clearly, his proud man-juice is weak and tainted with the poison of femininity.

Also, for some reason, I couldn’t help thinking of the Kronar stories on Oglaf (NSFW!).

    That’s where you are mistaken, PZ. See, his forefathers (and he only had forefathers) didn’t lower themselves to reproduce with women! It’s obvious that, just as he will someday, his forefathers simply jerked off in some field and where ever their drops of semen touched the ground up popped flawless specimen of human perfection, such as the ubermensch that wrote that. Like little flowers, you know?

    Too bad none of his forefathers included biologists…

    Or humans, apparently, since this guy’s family reproduces by budding. Plant man is MANLY. Testosterone courses through his mighty stem and BURSTS FORTH as complete and utter bullhonky.

    If I didn’t know that it wasn’t satire, I’d be laughing my arse off.

    All his mitchondria come from his mother. All his energy, all his strength, all his power….

    That’s the most bizarre and horrifying thing I’ve read in months. It’s like… his own personal theory of eugenics, coupled with breathtaking misogyny and even more breathtaking arrogance. I’d suspect him of being a neo-fascist, except that I imagine his “master race” would consist only of himself.

    Indeed. If I didn’t know it wasn’t satire = I know it’s not satire. … I think. Hence not laughing. :(

    Women sense my power and they seek the life essence. I, uh… I do not avoid women, Mandrake but I do deny them my essence.

  10. dezn_98 says

    I just want to say…. reading his blog was the most disgusting thing I have ever read. Rarely do things I read produce and actual gag reflex… what I read, and his other blog posts made me seriously angry and made me literally gag.

    I just want to warn people… reading the sht that he writes on his blog.. is not for the faint of heart. Seriously, do not read it unless you are prepared to be angry as sht and vomiting in disgust at the same time.. and the comment section on his blog is that much worse…

    Just don’t… to even know such people exist and others support the ideology seriously…. I mean, I do not even know how to express my disgust. Just be warned.. YES IT IS THAT BAD.

  11. Muz says

    Is there a Pick-ed Up Artists blog/network somewhere? That title needs work but hopefully you get the idea. It’s still that opposite perspective which you don’t hear enough of.
    I think it’d be a bit of a shock to these guys systems to read stuff like that. They are so convinced, it would seem, that they are walking in an imposing themselves on a neutral or passive situation. They’re cajoling and taming unbroken ponies or something, via ancient masculine knowledge and willpower with their firm but sensual touch or whatever garbage (or using high tech, latest thing bio-psy-ops-hacking bullshit).
    Where the truth is plenty of women know this crap well enough and know exactly what’s going on and if you, PUA, are really lucky, they’re trying to see past it to some real you worth salvaging.
    Seeing as enough guys flock to this stuff because they want to reverse the emasculation explanation they have in their heads for their sex life and want to know The Secret to getting ahead of the game; . there’s a certain perverse delight in imagining them contemplating the ladies already knowing this “secret” themselves and adjusting accordingly.

  12. Algernon says

    American Psycho?

    I promise. Promise. I would not be “giving” sex to a psychotic narcissist semen worshiper who also apparently thinks his ejaculate itself is the most desirable thing one can get from sex.

    Men of lesser genetics probably are better with their tongues, for instance. I doubt very seriously his seriously noxious personality wouldn’t result in a high percentage of neurotic offspring.

  13. scrawnykayaker says

    @13 That was my first thought, exactly. Greatest film evar.

    This guy clearly subscribes to the homonculus hypothesis of embryogenesis. A good conservative: no actual science will disturb his 17th Century view of the world.

  14. Who Cares says

    I second the suggestion of SC (Sally Current) to follow that link to the guy imitating Saruman reading out this.
    On that note I find it quite impressive that he managed to keep up without breaking out in any form of laughter or exasperation.

    Typical though. Impossible demands on the any female he’d want to court (note: he’d think he’d court them, most people would run away from it).

  15. ledasmom says

    Seems to me that if he explains his rules for the dispensing of his royal jizz to any woman he meets, he’s not exactly going to have a problem with over-dispensing it.
    Also, if his stuff is really “liquid fucking gold”, I certainly do not want it anywhere near me. Ouch.
    Also, regarding Kronar, I cannot read the line “free from woman’s taint” without giggling.

  16. consciousness razor says

    Go that route. Trust me.

    Heh. I completely lost it right about here:
    My ceiling for accomplishment is limitless[!!!!!]

  17. says

    My ceiling for accomplishment is limitless.

    Somehow, I just get this gut feeling that this guy is one of those narcissists who’s been given numerous chances to prove himself, but sabotages himself and his co-workers with his attitude, ignores advice and criticism, and holds unrealistic expectations of personal success when everyone else accurately predicts mediocrity and failure as consequences of his naive actions. Then, when he’s held accountable for his foolishness, blames the co-workers for being uncooperative saboteurs because they’re envious of his superiority and want to see him fail.

    Then again, I often get that feeling from a lot of misogynists and racists. Many of them seem to lack any sort of virtue tied to their individual identity, so it seems like they swing around their sexual or racial privilege and rationalize their failures away as sabotage by outsiders to feel better about themselves without actually doing anything productive.

    SADunlap @28

    Yeah it is a worry. But it seems in certain circles it’s all people know (there is various ‘degrees of severity’, I suppose you could say, of PUArtistry of course). I recall the endless theorising and redrawing of courtship ‘semiotics’ in youth, where nothing is actually straightforward. It’s pretty much an extension of that really.
    What’s curious is how they don’t seem to think think they’re interacting with a dynamic, reactive system (to put it in a crass sort of inhuman way). It’s a wild, skittish herd and they are the horse whisperer.
    They’d probably say “Oh of course we know!”, but the way they talk (the less absurd than this guy at the top anyway), I think it’d really upset a few apple carts to see people really know this stuff and probably play it back accordingly. (Yeah, hard to think that it’d shock anyone to know that locking eyes with someone an extra long time, sitting extra close etc isn’t some sort of hormone stirring magic but a sign you’re following a script someone else can choose to play along with. But people do seem that obtuse)

    I played this on my livestream this morning and the entire room was rolling on the floor, I had to mute my mic because I couldn’t breathe through laughing. This is LIQUID FUCKING GOLD! lmao

  27. saganite says

    Kronar of course values “manly” strength regardless who wields it (check the follow-up comic), so he’s actually much more progressive on this than that guy.

    As a biologist, I also felt like telling him “liquid pearls” would be a better metaphor. If it’s a ruddy yellow, it’s probably got blood and urine in it, and he’s probably had a blowout somewhere.

  31. Amphiox says

    Approximately half of the genetic sequence in Mr Raving PUA’s sperm comes from his mother

    As a male, he inherited on Y chromosome from his father and one X from his mother. The X is much bigger than the Y. That and the mitochondrial DNA means that in fact more than half of his genetic sequence comes from his mother.

    karmacat@46,

    Watching coal-miners at work, you realize momentarily what different universes people inhabit. Down there where coal is dug is a sort of world apart which one can quite easily go through life without ever hearing about. Probably majority of people would even prefer not to hear about it. Yet it is the absolutely necessary counterpart of our world above. Practically everything we do, from eating an ice to crossing the Atlantic, and from baking a loaf to writing a novel, involves the use of coal, directly or indirectly. For all the arts of peace coal is needed; if war breaks out it is needed all the more. In time of revolution the miner must go on working or the revolution must stop, for revolution as much as reaction needs coal. Whatever may be happening on the surface, the hacking and shovelling have got to continue without a pause, or at any rate without pausing for more than a few weeks at the most. In order that Hitler may march the goose-step, that the Pope may denounce Bolshevism, that the cricket crowds may assemble at Lords, that the poets may scratch one another’s backs, coal has got to be forthcoming. – George Orwell (1937)The Road to Wigan Pier

    Orwell could just as easily have added “In order that scientists may discover new truths about the world”, and could have said much of what he did about miners, about agricultural labourers, textile workers, sailors, steel workers, glass-blowers, rubber-tappers… and of course (although he was probably too conventionally sexist for it to have occurred to him) the women who bore, and overwhelmingly did the work of rearing, the next generation.

    Karmacat:

    Without scientists, we wouldn’t have vaccines, modern medicine (as imperfect as it is), the internet, cars, airplanes, phones, etc.

    And without everyone else doing what they do, scientists wouldn’t have been able to do shit. That’s the point you insist on missing.

    And Kronar is the dude in the Oglaf cartoon, not the liquid gold dude.

  37. says

    PZ:

    It would have made a much better artistic metaphor as well. There’s a touch of the poetic in it, and it doesn’t have the rather repellent image of liquid gold ejaculate. That’s just eeeeuuw. And the liquid gold business made think of the old tales about King Midas.

    Men of lesser genetics probably are better with their tongues, for instance.

    Genetics could be relevant, I suppose; how much does being able to roll it actually help? O.o

    Still seems to pale in comparison to the combination of seeing one’s partner as a human being and caring about her pleasure…and being really, really entertained/amused by the noises and reactions that accompany it. :3

    Or so I’ve *cough* heard…

    Another random thought.: gold melts at about 1046 C. I find the fact that this is “1337” K amusing, but I don’t think more than a few hundred people on earth would find having liquid gold inside them appealing even to think about. O.O

    As a biologist, I also felt like telling him “liquid pearls” would be a better metaphor. If it’s a ruddy yellow, it’s probably got blood and urine in it, and he’s probably had a blowout somewhere.

    And how are pearls formed?

    Interesting that there is a lore around Roman statesmen being killed by having molten gold poured down their throats–Crassus, Valerian. Maybe he has a background in the classics. All I can say is that his genetics are so precious that he shouldn’t waste them on any ovum. He should horde them ’til he dies.

  58. a_ray_in_dilbert_space says

    Dalillama, I believe that in actuality, the whole gold down the throat thing was posthumous with Crassus. Similarly, there are tales of Valerian being killed by the molten gold cocktail–also apparently propaganda. That is why I referred to them as lore. There is a similar tale of Valerian being flayed alive, and then getting the molten gold treatment. In actuality, Valerian seems to have actually been fairly well treated.

  59. piegasm says

    OT:

    @75 coleslaw

    I did see that. A friend of mine linked/liked it on her facebook. I made sure to tell her how awful I thought it was.

    She has different pictures up now, but it was originally a bunch of beach pictures of her sons half naked and flexing while she slut shamed girls. There is a comment from her expressing her dismay that anyone could possibly see those pictures of her boys as anything but innocent and wholesome and she explains that she hadn’t even given any thought to what pictures she posted. That’s the point dear: you can post pictures of teenage boys with the full expectation that people will see them as people and not the objects of someone else’s uncontrollable lust.

    The pictures she has up now are all of them looking at pics on their phones and laughing. Maybe it’s just me but I feel like it creates the impression that they’re looking at the pictures her post is about and mocking those girls. It’s probably accidental given how clueless she obviously is but it’s disgusting all the same.

    I was confused by this as well. Perhaps it’s a spherical ceiling, so it’s limitless in the sense that it isn’t bounded by any edges, even though in other respects it’s finite (and in this case, happens to be very small). I believe you British people refer to this as “the sky,” but perhaps all of that was just painted on the inside surface.

    Ichthyic, so that’s what Shirley Eaton was actually covered with.

    Remind me to never look up who that is. :-)

    Its the haplogroup of men who built civilization.

    Actually, I am more bothered by the racism than the sexism in this one. The sexism is just stupid, the racism is classic “white man’s burden”. His haplogroup built civilization? Deary, I don’t care what your haplogroup is, I can flat out guarantee that it wasn’t your ancestors alone who built civilization. Or only the men. And it sure as shit ain’t you that’s building it.

    Yeah, I had no idea who Shirley Eaton was either, until somehow thread context intruded on my brain and Bamf! there appeared the image.

    And, oh, am I so, so sorry.

    Thumper:

    a deep-seated need to convince himself that he is more than average despite all evidence to the contrary.

    Tempting though it is to laugh at the probable gulf between his self-image and the less golden reality, I think that misses the mark. He could be a Nobel-winning Olympic medallist, and he’d still be a ridiculous, disgusting douchebiscuit. Plenty of highly successful people have loathsome attitudes and grandiose fantasies: that’s not limited to losers.
