Tucker does not project masculinity in the slightest.  He comes across as the rich, preppy, wimpy kid who probably couldn't even do a push up.
 
2021-10-19 12:59:11 PM  
Are Tucker and Rogan dating now? The projection of hypermasculinity between the 2 shows their longing for each other.

"Tucker Carlson"

"performative masculinity"


Tucker is not a very good actor, then.

"Podcaster Joe Rogan has made a mint off of appealing to the sea of men who want an easy boost to their self-esteem through chauvinistic chest-thumping, rather than developing real skills and a personality."

Heh.

Tucker is the "all hat no cattle" of performative masculinity, if the hat was a foppish cavalier hat.

Joe Rogan was dumb enough to believe that the moon landings were faked. Of course he's going to go all in on any conspiracy theory about covid.

Joey isn't much better. This isn't "fragility of male ego" or anything like that, it's literally racism and fear of the other. That has jack and shiat to do with male ego, so the article is an idiot.

Authoritarians prey on insecure men, feeding them a story of how all their gnawing self-doubts can be silenced by embracing an unapologetically male chauvinist attitude. They recruit such men with a fairy tale about how the modern world is scary and confusing. The solution, they say, is to return to rigid, unforgiving gender roles that just so happen to value straight, cis men above all other people.

This is MRA/Red Pill/PUA/Incel culture to a T.

I was listening to Bill Burr on the Mike Tyson podcast yesterday and he was just raving about how funny Rogan was at stand up.  I'm thankful to have never heard it so there was no sense of loss for me since he's been nothing but a douchbag since I first heard of him a few years ago.  But comedians love that guy.  Dave Chappelle, Neal Brennan, Chris Rock.  They all farking love him and it makes me sick.

When all you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.

When all you have is UFC training and a love of psychadelics then it's impossible to imagine a problem that can't be solved by one of those things. A disease involving complex biochemistry isn't an issue since the toolset isn't equipped for that. Ergo the real issue must be someone that can be punched or whose mind needs to be expanded.

as the TFA says, he bashes others in order to give himself the appearance of being superior.

Carlson doesn't have to be super macho buffed cut swoll guy to attack Buttigieg with a slam about breastfeeding his kid.

This is bullshiat wrapped up to make others feel superior for the wrong reason. These guys are selling something that sells near universally: racism / fear of the other. That has jack and shiat to do with male ego. Make no mistake this is something that is far simpler than you'd like to admit: people fear the other and fear losing their place.

I always wonder how these "thought leaders" rationalize the fact that they need to groom or trick people into adopting their ideology. That they need to misuse statististics or present evidence without context to win converts.

But I suppose they're all scared little boys deep down who were probably tricked or groomed themselves.

Tucker Carlson is the rich preppy kid that always gets away with doing terrible things because of who is family is. He does not project masculinity, he projects privilege and smugness.

Joe Rogan is a meathead only slightly more articulate than the floor humper guy.

The Proud Boys are an exclusively male association as can be taken from, you know, their name.

I don't see a problem with the quoted paragraph at all.

It's so clean, not even a drip of stain on the cans, it's like he bought that house in Maine and had his assistant buy some old timers garage sale, clean random shiat and put it there.

He definitely used HGH, a lot, at some point in his life, perhaps still. That 2.5 times normal head size is impossible to miss. My little brother was in NSW for about 15 years, and when he came home finally, it was comical. He looked nothing like his brothers because he had obviously been juicing at some point. Friggin Barry Bonds looking fool.....

Here's an idea.  Challenge Tucker, Hannity, Ingram and the Trumps to a tire-changing competition...no better way to show off the manly muscles and tough-guy image than some good old fashioned elbow grease.
 
2021-10-19 3:14:51 PM  
All they've got is frothing anger and misogyny and they think it's masculinity.

I wouldn't bet on either to change a tire or light a campfire.
 
2021-10-19 3:15:19 PM  
The fact that Tucker and Ben Shapiro are a few of the losers teaching toxic masculinity, and are also some of the most effete pantywaists on camera should let you know how serious to take them.

Milo could have beaten both in this category if they didn't find out he was gay. Because let's be honest, being a pedo doesn't hurt you in conservative circles.

austerity101: Farkers in every art thread:  "F*ck this modern art. It's useless. My child could make that!"


To be fair, a child could make virtually every work of modern art I've seen.  I mean, they wouldn't, lacking the vision, but mechanically, they could.  Frank Gehry was quite clear about playing with jumbling blocks until he found a pile he liked before turning it over to his engineers and saying "Make that stand up at three orders of magnitude bigger while made of iron and stainless steel".  Any two year old can repeat the actions, though their diction might be a bit more lispy.  Result wouldn't the same.  I don't care for Gehry, so I might like the tike's version purely out of spite, but conceptually, I have to give the win to the weirdo.
