GrifterShifter is a new commenter. She first appeared on 2023/1/20, criticizing Kevin Samuels as a grifter. Over the next few days, GS left a few comments under several posts, all having the same flavor of criticism. When she started commenting on the most recent posts, she brought up many inflammatory ideas (e.g. immigration, monasticism, tr@nsmaxxing, vaginismus, etc.) that were waaay off topic and effectively derailed the discussion. To top it off, her comments were disdainful towards Red Pill lore and took on a condescending tone towards men in general, especially Incels, MGTOW, et al.
I posed four questions to GS with the intention of eliciting a more solid and reasonable response out of her.

- How should vaginismus be addressed in order to set proper expectations for a LTR?
- What do you think the church should be doing differently to help young people set proper expectations for sex and marriage?
- Finally, how does all this relate to Consolidating Masculinity?
The majority of this post will review GS’s flimsy responses to these questions and offer a better informed and more reasonable assessment, followed by a summary statement at the end.Continue reading
