Too Bad I No Longer Smoke!

Because damn it, I used to love a cigarette with my morning coffee.

I'm just going to ask you to consider this:  If someone were being "stalked" by a "dangerous narcissist" -- if he only suspected it -- wouldn't the rational response be to contact law enforcement authorities?  Wouldn't it be rather irrational to instead write and promote a post that really is tantamount to a borderline libelous character assassination?

I think you know as well as I do that Mr. Forney is lying when he claims to be motivated by a need to "protect the public."  And some of you must surely recognize that this was the action of a very little, very vindictive person.

I will quote another MRA on this issue:

"If there is a serious risk to the public the correct action is to call the authorities. Anyone with half a brain cell could tell you that is what responsible people do. They do not go onto their blog and give out any personal information on that person, hand their readers pitchforks and torches, and then expect any real justice to be served. The only thing that will come out of that course of action is the very real risk that someone will get hurt, or worse.

Could it be that AVFM never reported the Femetheist to the authorities because they know the authorities would not see her as any sort of risk to the public? Of course they did, and that is why they doxxed her so that their form of 'justice' can be exacted since the real world would never take their concerns seriously - because the cornerstone of western jurisprudence is that a person is innocent until proven guilty - in a court of law - not on the internets."

  1. Yep, pretty sure you have nothing to worry about. Once in a very long while, one of these frustrated wallflowers goes psycho, but they tend to target large groups of people who don't even know them. The rest of the time, the knights of fake bravado tend to be overly mild mannered, painfully shy or just plain awkward in real life.

    Tell me, could someone with such thin skin as to throw tantrums actually achieve anything in real life, let alone professional success or sexual intimacy? These guys shut down and retreat inside themselves while out in the world, and then explode with rage in private.

    1. Yes, I am kind of a crazy old lady. And no, I am not getting off the internet.

    2. No, you're definitely not a crazy old lady :)

  3. It would be a fair guess to say that Cynthia Gockley’s obsession with myself and the manosphere is motivated in part by her own personal failings. She is overweight and in poor health, childless, unmarried, has a history of being sexually abused, is estranged from her family, and is employed at an embarrassingly low level for her age.

    Honestly you sound like the one that needs the most help. Seems like he nailed it ( you ) on the head fairly well. Not to mention your 20+ years older then forney. LOL

    1. Dear John,

      Thank you for your response, which you have obviously put a great deal of thought into.

      Best wishes,

      La Strega

    2. BTW, I am 30 years older that Mr. Forney, not 20. But who's counting?

  4. "Of course, I will be taking normal precautions under the circumstances and you can be sure that I will be exploring my legal options vis-a-vis Mr. Forney."

    You really should get out of the blogging business, it is affecting your judgement. I'm concerned for your mental health.

    1. Thanks for your advice and concern. Please note the proper spelling of "judgment".

  5. Oh noes, a handful of anonymous posters are leaving rude and unoriginal comments on your blog, how will your life ever get back on track from this ignomy??? Scatt Horney truly is a force to be reckoned with. I hope he never finds out where I live, or he might ring my doorbell and run away!

    1. Nah, Young Matthew is a lot more likely to drive around your block obsessively. It doesn't seem like he could run all that fast, and he isn't a face to face sort of a guy.

  6. I don't think your motives extend beyond self-gratification with this endeavor but I'll admit your synthesis of some of these guy's own troubled pasts puts their words in entirely different contexts.

    What perplexes me is that for supposedly finally becoming enlightened, masculine men they handle criticism like tween boys on the autism spectrum. Time to rethink my reading choices.

    1. This is probably the most gratifying comment I have ever gotten.

  8. I KNEW you were a fat white chick! Do you have cats too?

    Face it honey, white people are dying out and so is your form of butthurt feminism

  9. Wow, it's been a long time since someone called me a "chick." That's kind of sweet.

  10. It's funny how manospherians like to talk down about weak 'betas' 'white knighting' for women who don't put out, but they'll quickly do the bidding of another man. I hope Forney's at least throwing them a blowy every now in then, or it really isn't worth all this trouble, is it?

    1. I suspect that Forney is actually doing the bidding of his idol, Roosh.

    2. I think that they're so far up each other that even they don't know where one ends and one begins. They all take each others ideas and take turns making them more outrageous and offensive and sit back and chuckle.

      Either way, I just wanted to stop by and show my support. I'm a longtime lurker of the manosphere and their commenters, and I've always really enjoyed your blog. I'd actually stopped following your blog because I'd thought you'd retired, so I suppose I should give Forney some kudos for letting me know you were back, lol.

    3. Thanks Vivian. I did retire, but I just couldn't walk away while I was ahead, could I? Anyway, the maddening part of this is that now I can't retire because that would mean "they won."

  11. In a way this behavior might be almost building towards something healthy. Young manospherians tend to be guys who were pretty much rejected by their whole peer groups, not just by girls. The manosphere seems to be the first place where they've felt themselves to be among friends, for many of them. I think that's the reason they form such strong bonds with each other's online personas and feel so betrayed by the "white knights".

    Normal people go through this stage in kindergarten. Hopefully, it will lead to more sophisticated interpersonal skills and more advanced abilities to bond with other human beings.

    1. Yes, I think you're on to something. After following these guys pretty intensely for over a year, I'm struck how hungry they are to bond with other males. Even the sex they talk endlessly about is just a means to earn one another's respect. Some of the most poignant stuff MF has written expresses a deep yearning for emotional intimacy with men. I can't help but feel that many of these guys have been badly let down by their dads. They seem adrift, looking for masculine models.

    2. In fact, this is such a striking insight, it really deserves more exploration.
