  1. OT: Dysgenia? According to the National Survey of Family Growth, having a Bachelor’s degree costs a straight man 1.6 bangs compared to being a college dropout, and 1.9 bangs compared to having just a HS degree.

    Being white costs him 1.8 bangs compared to being black, and makes him one-third less likely to have had 15 or more.

    This is so so wrong. If we acknowledge that prole baby mommas aren’t going to snag a commitment from anyone, why aren’t they competing for concubinage with educated white men? There was a time when they understood that having Strom Thurmond as your baby daddy was actually not that bad of a gig, compared to the alternatives.

    Their children would receive more resources, more promising opportunities, have higher average intelligence and also encourage SWPL women to treat their men better.

    • That stat is retarded. These days, low education = unmarried. If you are unmarried and having a drunken hookup with a diseased whale once every three years, your sex life is crappy but you are piling on the notches.

      Mitt Romney probably only ever got one notch, but it was enduring and very high quality. He married Ann when he was 21 and she was 19. She was quite the looker and they made lots of babies.

      • Everyone seems to have missed the most important point – Mitt is from a rich family! He went to a well-regarded private high school in a Midwestern state; he and Ann were both swimming in a much cleaner pond, so to speak, from the beginning. It’s easy to meet like-minded people with proper values if you, you know, grow up with them and so forth.

        Once again, many ‘manosphere’ attitudes are really just the (reactionary) result of class and overpopulation effects.

        She’s incredibly full of herself, has a Jewish mother and boyfriend and is a SELF identified Jewish female.

        Besides, her SWPL/hipster/New York Jewish readers/audience LOVE dogs even if they don’t own one.

    • yeah, I was hoping that there was substance behind this, but being that she is Jewish (I didn’t actually know that until I read about this story), nothing will happen besides the initial outrage. Jews mock each other all the time. If she were WASP and she made the comment, yeah, that could be a bigger issue. I’m just wondering who edits her writing, as she is not too bright an there are no glaring types.

  10. So, her boyfriend is Jack Antonoff from the band Bleachers?

    I can’t imagine being in the music business and settling for that repulsive heifer as my girlfriend when there’s a lot less ugly women around dying to go after a lead singer. In the music biz you don’t even have to be actually talented or good, just known.

    And her show sucks, too.

    Camlost

    March 28, 2015 at 3:15 PM

    • This is the real story. Antonoff fronts a commercially successful band, and plays lead guitar in an even bigger band, yet his official girlfriend is Lena Dunham? Even putting aside looks, it’s not as though she has a winning personality. Maybe he is a dog: he’ll fuck anything.

      • Would the article “Monkey or Black Boyfriend? A Quiz” be racist?

        Lion of the Blogosphere

        March 28, 2015 at 5:07 PM

      • “Monkey or Black Boyfriend? A Quiz”

        All depends how low on the evolutionary scale the animal is perceived.

        U nless one is Muslim, dogs = Jews isn’t the same as monkeys = blacks. Equating pigs with Jews would be closer. Dogs? They’re perceived as cuter, more advanced lifeforms than simians. If the article’s title were “Puppy or Jew” there would be little if any controversy.

        Anyway, it’s only the title that’s arguably offensive. Her bullet points themselves weren’t that insulting, at least I didn’t think so .

        The Undiscovered Jew

        March 28, 2015 at 5:29 PM

      • Comparing black people to monkeys has been considered racist for as long as I can remember (whereas no one considered it racist to compare George W. Bush to one). If you think about it, it’s kind of racist that it’s considered racist.

        Anyhow, I think Lena Dunham’s biggest sin in that piece was not being funny. Making people laugh is one of the noblest things you can do, and it requires a certain generosity of spirit. Dunham isn’t a comedienne though, so, it just came across as mean, and people responded accordingly.

        A year or two ago, this wouldn’t have been as big a deal, because Dunham had some goodwill built up as a fresh-faced actress/auteur. But today, with the bloom off the Girls rose, and the revelations that Dunham falsely accused someone of rape and admitted to molesting her sister, that goodwill is gone.

        Dave Pinsen

        March 28, 2015 at 5:36 PM

      • Dunham isn’t a comedienne though,

      • Anyhow, I think Lena Dunham’s biggest sin in that piece was not being funny.

        Isn’t that a silly standard though? I can understand something’s offensiveness depending on how it was intended but it makes no sense for something to be judged offensive because it’s not funny. You can take a fantastic joke and then express the same thought in a slightly different way and it’s no longer funny. And different people and different groups have very different ideas about what is and isn’t funny.

        Lloyd Llewellyn

        March 28, 2015 at 9:58 PM

      • “Isn’t that a silly standard though? I can understand something’s offensiveness depending on how it was intended but it makes no sense for something to be judged offensive because it’s not funny.”

        No, it’s not a silly standard. If something is genuinely funny, even targets of the joke will laugh, and if they’re laughing, they’re happy.

        March 30, 2015 at 2:26 AM

    • She is not sexist, she is a feminist, sexists think there is a difference between the genders, feminists think the genders are equal but they hate males and want women to have privileges over man. Two different things.

      Hashed

      March 28, 2015 at 5:46 PM

      • Well I would argue that is sexist. Also, feminists do think that men and women are innately different. The only way to reconcile feminist claims that society is biased in favor of men with the fact that women outperform men in so many key areas (life expectancy, criminality, educational attainment, etc.) is to believe that male deficiencies are due to innate differences. Feminists just don’t like to talk about this.

        Lloyd Llewellyn

        March 28, 2015 at 9:45 PM

  14. I think the only reason this is controversial is that she is a half Jew. If she were a pure Jew like Larry David, Woddy Allen, ect making these kinds of jokes I don’t think Abe Foxman would care.

  17. Her trite little article is clearly anti-man; not anti-semitic.

    That’s why I’ve never watched her show “Girls” regardless of it’s quality. I don’t need to see a show about spoiled white/jewish bitches who are mean, small,superficial, petty, aggressive, strong independent women who like to whine as they despoils themselves throughout there teens and 20s. I’ve (we’ve all) lived the awful reality.

  18. The ADL ought to get a grip. Foxman calls Lenham’s piece tasteless but of course would never have a comment about this linked video by two prominent but no-talented Jewish “comedians”. Yes I know Silverman’s and Rogen’s piece is non-sectarian, just offensive to any sense of decency, but still, somebody has to call these jackasses to heel. Who better than this sell-appointed watchdog, vigilante of the always emerging anti-semitism. He could say, you know, this type of “humor” does make the Jews look bad, knock it off.

    http://www.vulture.com/2014/11/seth-rogen-sarah-silverman-dog-semen-sketch.html

    BTW, back when I was in college Jewish men would often make fun of Jewish girls with the JAP jokes. Remember them? There used to be a poster, akin to Lehnam’s joke, dissecting all the deficiencies and grotesquries of the supposed Long Island/ New Jersey JAP. The goyim were always uncomfortable with JAP jokes. I never saw the humor in the JAP send up.

    Daniel

    March 28, 2015 at 11:20 PM

    • Hate to tell you but gentiles told JAP jokes too (to the extent they were traveled enough to have encountered one — mostly a NE phenom). Probably because it made fun of people for something about which they couldn’t complain too much, being spoiled. Plus, the archetype was highly distinctive (if an accent was added to the telling) and represented a somewhat traditional outlook which I think people liked at the time. I don’t recall hearing any JAP jokes that included a feminist punchline.

      Curle

      March 29, 2015 at 11:15 AM

    • BTW – I’m not sure that Jewish women were as much the target of the jokes as the familiar archetype that would allow efficient telling of spoiled women jokes. Who wants to begin a joke, ‘hear the one about the spoiled woman who wanted her husband to come into money?’ Same with blonde jokes. Blondes were an effective vehicle for telling airhead women jokes.

  19. Really? People are annoyed at this?

    Well for starters, the “Shouts and Murmurs” section of the New Yorker, supposedly the comic part, is desperately un-funny about 95% of the time. Really, Dunham’s piece, mildly funny as it is, is probably in the top 20% of “Shouts and Murmurs,” that’s how bad it usually is.

    But what’s to take offense? Oh hey, my Jewish boyfriend or my dog. They’re similar! Gosh.

    “It hasn’t always been easy, but we currently live together and it’s going O.K.”

    Ok, so that’s mildly funny. But offensive? Anti-Semitic even? C’mon people.

    “When I go out of town on a business trip, he sleeps with a pair of my underwear.”

    That’s funny!

    “He has a sensitive stomach and has to take two Dramamine before entering any moving vehicle.”

    See, that’s good because it could be either one! Get it?? That’s the whole idea.

    “In addition, he is openly hostile toward the Hasidic community, focusing most of his rage on their bulky (but chic) fur hats.”

    Whoa! So now we’ve got anti-semitism within the anti-semitism? Or is it just lame humor?

    Well Dunham’s piece is currently “most popular” on the New Yorker website, and the New Yorker is a magazine that appeals to a very Jewish demographic (and to me), so what’s the problem?

    I’m really utterly fed up with all this kind of over sensitive bullcrap.
