Amanda Marcotte Feels the Need to Weigh In on the High-Schooler-Who-Asked-Kate-Upton-to-Prom Controversy

Controversy? Oh yes. Oh very yes. Of course it's a controversy. It's Amanda Marcotte, after all, and stupid shit about the Same Damn Thing just isn't going to write itself.

First of all, do you know who Kate Upton is? Some of you don't. Perfect. She's this girl right here.

She looks like this.

Sometimes she looks like this.

I could go on. But you're up to speed now.

So Amanda Marcotte noticed that Kate Upton gives Search Engine Optimization algorithms boners, too, and she decided she had to weigh in. For Feminism. And some Kate Upton traffic.

Kat Stoeffel of the Cut has a post celebrating Upton for coming up with a polite excuse to get out of the date, even though Upton still had to endure the humiliation of having to pretend she was flattered, so as to preserve her reputation for being "nice." As Stoeffel points out, if famous models and actresses can't decline a man's offer for no other reason than lack of interest, what chance do the rest of us have?

"But her 'yes' would have reinforced the idea that women owe something--attention, time, sex--to men just because they've asked nicely. Or paid a compliment. Or bought a drink."

Davidson's prom video put Upton in a no-win situation. Say yes, and you have to go through with this prom date that will probably be one of the most awkward and embarrassing nights of your life, where you have to socialize with teenagers while being paraded around like a show pony. Laugh at the obvious ridiculousness of this entire situation, and now you're a big old meanie-head. But what Upton chose to do, which is to let him down easy while pretending to be flattered, isn't really much better. Everyone knows she's just saying that. The lesson learned: You may be a rich and famous model, but any random man can, just by making a video, force you to do a little song and dance about how delightful his attentions are.

Instead of applauding Davidson for this, adults should be appalled. All that's been taught here to young men is that they are entitled to women's attention simply because they ask for it. This lesson not only feeds the unjustified grievances of the Reddit users that Stoeffel describes as "tallying up women's socially obligatory acts of kindness." It also helps build the undercurrent of fear that many women, especially younger women, have to live with in their daily lives. This entitlement we teach men crops up all the time for women, and it's rarely as cute as a silly comedy video: When a man demands that you stop on the street to entertain his proposal of going back to his place and then follows you for blocks because you pretended not to hear him. When a rape victim is told that if she didn't want to have sex, she shouldn't have gone to the rapist's hotel room. When a woman files for a restraining order because she's afraid her abusive husband means it when he says that if he can't have her, no one can.

Wait, did we just go from a silly video asking Kate Upton to prom to a rape/domsteic-violence-ending-in-murder-scenario?

We sure did. That's Our Amanda (TM)!

Anyway, I can't believe I'm saying this, but Conor Fridersdorf (whatever) has a point. Marcotte writes relentlessly in the reductivist cant of Marxist critique, which only speaks of "power imbalances" and such.

Her ideology causes her to write as if she doesn't understand what is plain to most observers: Kate Upton is far more privileged, powerful, culturally savvy, and capable of fully exercising her autonomy than the vast majority of straight white males in America, and certainly more than a dateless, non-celebrity 18-year-old high school student on YouTube.

Speaking of "the dynamics of difference and power," as they called it at my alma mater, Marcotte, in her capacity as a regular columnist at a prestigious, internationally read Web magazine, presently possesses a lot more cultural power and privilege than the high school boy she just called "creepy," accused of implicitly threatening Upton with being called a bitch, and told that his prom invitation is rooted in the same premise that stalkers and rapists operate under.

Amanda has a lot of power. That power is the Power of Dumb. She wields this power without mercy (second item).


Thought: William F. Buckley deemed Patrick Buchanan likely guilty of antisemtism by analyzing his writings and his positions and noting that in every case, Buchanan decided negatively against Jewish opinions on the matter. Buckley conceded that this opinion or that one might be just fine in and of itself, but taken together, with Buchanan always on the other side of Jewish opinion, it didn't seem like random chance. It seemed like something unstated was influencing all of these pronouncements in the same direction


I'm not sure if this is a fair way to lay such a large charge against someone, but generally people seemed okay with it. The liberal media sure seemed to appreciate it.

My point is: If you look at all of Amanda Marcotte's positions and writings, isn't it rather obvious she despises men and will always, and I do mean always, find them guilty of some or other charge?

Uh, I'm pretty sure Amynda is sublimating her resentment at the sex kitten du jour - who recalls the busty blonde bombshell types of the 50s and 60s - at the pimply Nice Guy.
It's generally a bad idea to read anything Amynda writes at face value, as there tends to be a lot of subterranean issues getting worked through by proxy.
One time I suggested doing a MadLibs of pretty much any of her pieces wherein you swap "Daddy" in for "GOP," "Patriarchy" and the like, and "go to the mall with my friends" for "reproductive rights" or any desired entitlement. It's actually quiteilluminating.

"But her 'yes' would have reinforced the idea that women owe something--attention, time, sex--to men just because they've asked nicely. Or paid a compliment. Or bought a drink."

Except, there is exactly that expectation, and with good reason. If I buy a woman a drink, I'm not expecting her to drop down right there at the bar and suck my dick. I am, however, expecting that she spend the time it takes to finish that drink engaging me in conversation. If she doesn't want that, then she can refuse the drink. It's the same reason thata man buys dinner on a first date: he is demonstrating that he can be a provider, as well as buying a woman's time and attention in order to have a chance to impress her.

if anyone doesn't know what a "neg" is, it's a Pick Up Artist schtick where you pretend to compliment a girl but you're actually insulting her. The idea is to increase her insecurity and somehow make it seem like landing you in bed would be a vindication for her. Like, NOW that you've insulted her, she HAS to have sex with you just to prove herself to you.

No, I don't believe in this, I'm just doing a joke.

_________________________________

The idea of the neg is to communicate a higher relative value to a particularly attractive woman. It doesn't necessarily imply insult, though the crudest could be insults. A really attractive woman's frame is to qualify men because of the amount of postive attention they get from men all day every day. When you telegraph that you are qualifying her, you a) stand out from 99% of the other men she interacts with; and b) inflate your value as a potential mate in her mind. You're flipping her frame. It does work in initiating a rapport with attractive women, though no one size "technique" will lead to beddingthe woman of your choice at will.

There was no word on casualties as of 7:25 p.m.; however, the shooting took place late Wednesday afternoon in the vicinity of Human Resources Command, which employs roughly 3,800 people.

Because a lot of them have had their heads filled with BS about how they need to spend their twenties sleeping around and climbing the corporate ladder, and that after they enter their thirties and finally decide to have a kid then the perfect man will magically appear.

It doesn't, but they're too stupid or embarrassed to admit that they screwed up and that they're not as hot as they thought they were.

In person, probably.

Online, if the woman is interested, even if she doesn't ask first explicitly, she'll drop some pretty blatant hints, to the point where the guy has to say "so... er... Friday evening for coffee?" or else end the conversation

265 I suspect that the appeal of Miss Upton is that she is an undeniably pretty girl who is not perfect and therefore comes across as a real person instead of a fantasy. She is also not a stick figure.

267 I kind of stumbled upon this myself. I got sprung
for one girl in particular and got too invested, but at that a few other
really attractive girls that Ihad been intobegan expressing
interest.You reflecton it and realize that the difference wasn't them,
it was you, and particularly the way that you behaved when you didn't
give a shit about what the other girls thought because your mind was
elsewhere.I wasn't reacting to them like I might have before, so I
deduced that it was the laid back indifference that was the difference.
Totally changed my outlook towards women.

Wait what? People think Kate Upton is chubby? Dude WTF? I'm not as enamored of her as most, but calling her chubby is fucking retarded.

She's definitely curvier than most models and "hot" girls these days, but she carries it very well. She's curvy in the right places.

I am of the belief that if a man is interested in me, he'll let me know. If he's too shy to ask, then he's probably not someone I would be terribly interested in because I prefer greater directness.

That's why it was a compliment that I didn't crush him in any way.

I think it's harder for the guy (if he's not a serial killer). A little tact and massaging the truth, "I've recently started dating someone, and although I think we'd have a blast, I can't. Thanks for asking."

Doing so makes them a) feel insecure and an insecure woman is easy prey and b) if you don't want them, they'll damn well sure want to find out why and look at it as some kind of challenge/quest to make you want them.

After getting the run around from girls throughout college, I'll admit that I'm quite gunshy. I prefer to find a social event and see if we click through that before asking her out. That said, I find the easiest way to avoid the "friend zone" is to simply be honest. "I'm interested in you and would like to date you. No? Ok, I'll be friends with you. If you ever change your mind, I'm interested, but I'm not going to wait around pining."

327 I agree with absolute craziness of the Marcotte extrapolations--which is pretty much part and parcel with the Web these days--but to stick to the much narrower issue...

The specific...

In other words, instead of letting Marcotte go all "Animal House" trial scene and conclude that Upton is supporting rape, and this is all about male entitlement....

> The lesson learned: You may be a rich and famous model, but any random
man can, just by making a video, force you to do a little song and dance
about how delightful his attentions are.

Umm. No, because if you were not rich and famous you would not have to worry about managing the PR of the situation. You could be an asshole / bitch and not care.

But there is a price that comes with celebrity. You had better believe with reverse genders it would be even *more* PR-disastrous, so it's not male entitlement at all. That is, imagine a nice guy male, like Tim Tebow, for example. Imagine a dying high school girl asks him to her prom. Does he get to dismiss the invite any more cavalierly than does Upton? I think he's in the hot seat even more than she is.

*ADDITIONALLY* when it gets down to it, this...

> Instead of applauding Davidson for this, adults should be appalled. All
that's been taught here to young men is that they are entitled to
women's attention simply because they ask for it.

...is stupid, too, because how else is this dating thing supposed to work? Someone has to do the asking, and then someone has to finesse the response. If Marcotte really thinks this is a power imbalance, let her try being the pursuer for a while--and seeing how it feels to be shot down. What would her opinion of a man be who totally ignored her request for his attention?

People like her do not want equality and fairness. They want perks for their tribe, and their tribe just happens to be female.

The feeling mutual, and amusing.

I will share a bit of experience, it's way easier to get a new girlfriend, when you already have one. I don't know if women just assume that if you don't have one now, there must be something wrong with you, or what, but it's absolutely true. One girl going out with you is like the Seal of Approval.

And then women won't date a guy who's been single for years because he hasn't "settled down," but will pursue a married guy who plays "unhappy" because we all know how stable adulterers are.

It's like they have radar or you're giving off some vibe only they can sense.

Seriously, I have experienced this a number of times.

Also, there's a corollary. When you've broken up with someone that you're still attached to? Instant turnoff.

Posted by: Thorvald at April 03, 2013 08:08 PM (1V6Pv)

416 Bitches will bitch. Perhaps Amanda would care to put forth a superior system to that which nature has designed, and human society has constructed, where for the perpetuation of the species we each employ various strategies to arrive at the much to be desired "bumping of uglies."

Because if she were to come out and stand for some different and well defined system it would allow us to bitch about it the same way she bitches about things now. It is just too easy to perceive problems and complain about them without offering any viable alternative. Whatever she has in mind, I cannot believe it would empower women any more than the current arrangement where men essentially beg and bribe women for their indulgences. It is obvious who holds all of the power in that arrangement and women would be fools to give it up.

But there is also the whole leftist, elitist angle here as well. Heaven forfend Upton should have to even think about consorting with someone so far beneath her station. After all, she has achieved her rank through the sheer merit of having a tremendous rack.

And there is the irony. No one would neither know nor care who Kate Upton is were it not for the lust of men who want to bed her, or at least ogle her tremendous tatas. She has profited greatly from their attentions and she is a damn sight smarter than Marcotte in that she knows not to insult the hand that feeds her. All that Marcotte looks at is what the other hand is doing.

Ditto to both comments above.

Clinical depression is not the same as having a bad day and cannot be dealt with through willpower. If it is depression, then your chemicals are out of whack and you need assistance resetting them.

I lost a significant portion of the past year to depression and now am on a medication which has helped tremendously.

Help is there for the taking.

Ten years after i had left the church she was still sending birthday cards and anniversary cards. When she dies the church was filled. They had to bring in extra chairs. In her life she had much more impact that many, many people I know because she cared and was smart and was loved by people who weren't even her family and she was a motherly figure to people.
That's true of you, heather, believe it

Write down a list of people you love who love you-even friends you haven't seen for years maybe. They will be de devastated if you do anything.

513 St Catherine of Siena and St Theresea of Avila-Both umarried single women, and both declared Doctors of the church for their their theological insights and spiritual writings. This was said about St catherine of Siena:

a greatly respected figure for her spiritual writings, and political boldness to "speak truth to power"— it being exceptional for a woman, in her time period, to have had such influence in politics and on world history.

514 Comments from the unmarried and childless Dr. of the church, Therese of Avila;

May today there be peace within.

May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.

May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.

May you be content knowing you are a child of God.

Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.

515 Heather, I don't know if you'll see this, but I've had one date in the ten years since my ex brought the U-Haul to our front door while I was at work. sometimes it gets lonely, but I do remind myself that I am important to other people out there. Even if I don't realize it.

some days are easier than others. If you're seriously depressed and are making "plans", get your ass off to the nearest ER. Believe me, I know this.

It does get frustrating when the people on here start venting about the "stupid single women" who shouldn't vote. Remember, they're not talking about you or me! just the other stupid bitches out there.

anyway, you don't know me, but I've been lurking here for 7 years now, so I know you're a good,and valuable person. Chin up! And if you can't do that, they make some good drugs these days. Lol

516 Heather another thing, If things went south as we believe might be possible. who would we have to show us how to make quilts for those that came without necessities?

and Math! you know math.

517 Lots of good advice and love directed your way, Heather. Sorry I was away from the thread.

I'm married and childless. In Utah, land o' big families! And now I'm jobless, too. It is not fun when people have no idea what to make of me, but it is what it is. Good people adjust and get past the stereotypes and expectations of what we're "supposed" to be doing. Bad people or dumb people aren't worth worrying about.

MOAR Kate Upton links, plz.

519 Heather,
I think you mentioned years ago that you worked at John Deere. That right there is enough for me to think you are a great person. Seriously, you are a great person.

Guys that can't find prom dates set fires and masturbate to them. Girls that don't get asked to prom become bitter little Mandy's.

Nothing like the wrath of a woman scorned.

521 My point is: If you look at all of Amanda Marcotte's positions and
writings, isn't it rather obvious she despises men and will always, and I
do mean always, find them guilty of some or other charge?

Congrats - you just discovered what a "feminist" is, and if you happen to be a man in a domestic relations case, ya better hope the Judge isn't one.

Y-not, a couple we know are also childless and have decided not to put themselves through the pain of IVF or adopting. In the beginning they used to explain now they just go 'meh' and they've been happy together for over thirty years.

524 Ok, so now I know who Kate Upton is. Who the heck is Amanda Marcotte? And why does she think she's entitled to my attention just because she wrote a cranky column about Kate getting asked to the prom?

{{Heather}}, hang in there!

526 Ace,

Regarding your comments about Pat Buchanan: I met him last year at a book signing. He was available for questions. An israeli woman asked him why he was always against the jews. He said that was nonesense. He supports a two-state plan to protect the jews from the palestinians. Otherwise, he said, the jews would be destroyed by the pure numbers of palestinians.

Pat gets a lot of heat for middle east issues, but his primary concern is that israel survives as a nation. If israel is 90% muslim, is it really israel?

529 "If you look at all of Amanda Marcotte's positions and writings, isn't it rather obvious" that she's a stupid Stalinist cock sucking fuckin' cunt?

530 New catch phrase: "It will be bigger than Amanda Marcotte's Daddy issues!"

Posted by: Adjoran at April 03, 2013 11:55 PM (9uOra)

531 "Buckley conceded that this opinion or that one might be just fine in and of itself"

The problem is that Marcotte's opinion is NEVER just fine in and of itself.

And Buchanan tends to still be correct, while Buckley's legacy is chestless wonders like Rich Lowry.

533 Which feminist has the record for the most articles in which they get from innocous male behaviour to "it's just like rape" in the shortest number of words?

Posted by: Luke at April 04, 2013 12:13 AM (ROgDL)

534 Ace-When I first started reading your blog, I was in high school. I remember how much it sucked going to prom alone and watching all the gorgeous girls going with guys who I had no chance of emulating. Fast forward a few years, and my luck with women has improved quite a bit. (I was a virgin til I was 18, now at 20 I'm in the tens, although deep down I'm the "would get married tomorrow kind of guy")

Anyways, you probably already know this, but online dating is a good start. Plenty of fish is free and has lots of members. Also, you said it-don't give a fuck. Let me add a caveat-dont give a fuck if your plan is legal. See a cute girl at the mall, she looks 18+ and you don't see any guys escorting her? Go tell her it's your nieces birthday and that you don't know what to get her. You need to banish your "bitch butterflies"-its perfectly okay to get rejected (I once tallied up the times I was rejected in some way when I was 18...I stopped at 120)
You got this-seriously not too many people are awesome enough to bring together religious conservatives, libertarians, dirty conservatives other assorted Morons on a smart military blog. Be confident sir

anyways...all that advice is probably entirely unnecessary, but your blog was one of the few places I fit in while in high school, so I wish you the best of luck whether all you want is to get some poon or find Mrs. Ace of Spades!

535 So, Amanda Marcotte, a full-throated cheerleader of the Duke Lacross Team lynch mob, who went on to work as a propagandist for Fluffy the cheating Ambulance Chaser, jumps down the throat of a high school kid who shot for the moon and asked a pretty celeb to his high school prom.

High school bullies suck. What sucks far worse than that, are media whores who bully high school kids.

536 All that's been taught here to young men is that they are entitled to women's attention simply because they ask for it.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Uh, yes, that's EXACTLY right. That's called polite society. You know what ELSE is also true ?

Women are entitled to men's attention simply because they ask for it. How much do you want to bet that Cunty Bitch agress with THAT statement ?

Fuck her.

Posted by: deadrody at April 04, 2013 07:28 AM (b2D8X)

537 In Marcotte's World females are so weak they can't resist being ASKED. So telling a woman what to do is bad...apparently. But to ask a woman is really bad. So I guess men must activate their ESP and read a woman's mind.

You know, because that is how you treat adults and show respect- don't assume they can speak for themselves

538 "... while being paraded around like a show pony."

Um, that's Upton's job description.

Saw her being interviewed on TV on the Letterman show. (I don't watch Letterman, it was a complete accident, I swear.) Upton is just about as stupid of a dumb blonde as you can imagine. The horny old goat Letterman had difficulty keeping his dick in his pants.

I could go on. But you're up to speed now.

That's not the only thing up. I'll be in my bunk for the duration.

There were some self-lathing goth dudes, but they've all committed suicide.

Hell, even the lesbians don't want to go out with her. Waaaaay too much negativity.

Posted by: I R A Darth Aggie ® at April 04, 2013 09:09 AM (1hM1d)

542 One piece of evidence that Miss Marcotte does not hate men: she has been living with a gentleman named Marc Faletti for several years.
