Quiplinks


I mostly hate twitter.

But I appreciate the concept of the way many folks use it. While chuckling at Roissy in D.C.'s Citizen Renegade's Heartiste's twitter feed, I coined the term "Quiplink" in my mind to describe the aspect of twitter that I do like.

So here's my version of "tweets" -



"I’d like to play some part in changing this sense of security on the part of our black-robed would-be gods. It’s time for the courts to be held accountable." - Welmer

"If you don’t know who Rebecca Watson is, I envy you." - Ferdinand

"Ha! That proves it. Men don’t really prefer younger, hotter, nicer, less demanding women. They only date them because of their fragile male egos!" - Dalrock

"While both genders have their good sides and bad sides, society has encouraged women to view their weaknesses as strengths and their strengths as weaknesses." - Solomon

"Here’s a newsflash for women from me, on behalf of men in general: we don’t give a shit about fashion." - Badger

"As much as I'd love to see an end to modern junk food, I think this is going to have to be achieved without accepting the principle that the government should determine what we can and cannot consume." - Chris Masterjohn

"If you honestly didn't like Bush, you can't possibly justify liking Obama, not unless you ignore the facts..." - Wes Messamore

"Somehow, I don't think this was quite the gloriously liberated future that the feminists had in mind." - Vox Day

"You know what I think a Guru is? It's someone who sells you tantalizing, feel good, sound good lies or incomplete information that rarely if ever works for anyone as advertised." - Richard Nikolay

"While surveys show that women know less about politics than do men, they vote in larger numbers, and thus could demand special preference. Here we are." - Fred Reed

"While life today is indeed more complex today than it may have been a generation ago, it doesn’t have to be nearly as complicated as we make it." - Terri

"I had been waiting for this idiocy to come over here. How could the strong, independent, empowered, and of utmost importance, sexually liberated women let this one go?" - Finndistan Guy

"I for one am not willing to go through hoops to make grass babies go down easier, but the process is nonetheless extremely interesting." - Mark Sisson

"Divorce, that supreme statement of individuality over duty to husband, family, and oath, means damaged kids - no two ways about it." - Alcuin

"History has a message for us: No fiat currency has lasted forever. Eventually, they all fail." - Jeff Clark

"There is an old saying "lies, damned lies and statistics". Statistics don't lie. But liars can certainly misuse statistics for their own purposes." - Professor Hale

I like this concept so much I'll probably steal it in the next couple of weeks.

Dave,

I have been building a small file I call "Aphorisms of the Manosphere." You've added a few to that with this post. Solomon was a gold mine.

My favorite of his: "You do not owe a traditional wedding to any woman who cannot give you a traditional honeymoon."

The idea is to encapsulate in one or two sentences an irrefutable bit of logic. I also like "Women love to be dominated by a man, but hate to be controlled." I'll post someday at the Spearhead.

Vanderleun, have at it.

Badger & Finnidstan, it's been my pleasure to read your writings.

EA - yes, Solomon was a gold mine! He and Seasons of Tumult & Discord are two blogs that I sorely miss.

I thought that line from Jeff Clark was rather silly and said so over there.

@HGH reviews: I love your comment. A few days ago I read another quote on Twitter about a product of somebody and it went like this:
Your product make me crave for anti headache pills and really makes me longing for my death.
Really funny review (glad it wasn't about me)
