The HuffPost contacted George over at 3rd Millenium Men for an interview. The question I am wondering is, Why George? Why not another, more established manosphere blogger? I propose that the HuffPost wanted a persona just like George. Why?
Let’s assume for a moment that the one who did the contacting did his research on manosphere blogs. He would undoubtedly have come across the most respected authority blogs, and blogs which I would allege are at the cusp of innovative thought in the sphere. These are the blogs that I read when I want to be challenged intellectually and learn how the feminine imperative is present in my daily life. Reading RooshV, Dalrock, Chateau, Rational Male, MMSL over the past year has been probably the most important part of my red pill journey. These guys have been around for years expanding on their viewpoints, and analyzing in depth.
Meanwhile, 3MM had it’s first post back in July of this year. They are relatively new to the scene.
I submit a possible reason that they contacted 3MM is because they a) put a positive spin on their posts and b) doesn’t get overly misogynistic, academic, or religious. I have read many, many posts by 3MM. While they are certainly red pill, they are not bitter like some posts and comments of others can be. They even did an “I Love Women” post series. Meanwhile, CH is posting about how to screw with your cheating whore of an ex…
Personally, if I were doing an interview, I would think that 3MM is a solid call too. They aren’t just whining, they are posting actionable advice to both men and women on how to act to be happier given the sexual market.
I quoted this comment in a previous post, but it is too applicable to leave out here. It sums up just why I think George is a good representative for the sphere. Francis Begbie said:
With all the white nationalist shit at Roissy’s blog, Roosh’s pessimism, Dalrock’s christian slant, Rollo’s academia style of writing, there’s little there to appeal to the mainstream. Roosh is the unofficial head of The Manosphere at this stage, and like you said, he isn’t really marketable.
After rewatching the interview, I’ll repeat: solid job. The only people who said anything sensible in that discussion were him and blondie anyhow. Although I kinda wonder…what the hell were they going for with those other two dudes they got for the interview? They had essentially no credentials. How did the HuffPost find them anyway?
The manosphere’s first ‘official?’ break into the MSM is bound to get overanalyzed as it already seems to have done. How much can we talk about a 27 minute interview anyhow? We shall see what more is to come in 2013.
Your friend and my favorite,
