I’ve been a memer since 2006

Let me preface this by saying that I’ve been a memer since they first appeared on 4chan circa 2006 (ages ago in internet time). I remember refreshing /b/ all afternoon with the hope that someone would make a new meme. I was a memer back when Advice Dog was the only one and I still upvote every Advice Dog meme I see becasue of the fond rush of nostalgia it brings me. Nowadays, there are many thousand on quickmeme and other meme websites. I was a memer back before memegenerator was created (the first meme website) and I had to make them with MS Powerpoint or Paint. Speaking of meme websites, I was one of the first submitters to memebase.com and still have one of the top accounts there despite having migrated to reddit nearly 2 years ago. It was on 4chan and memebase where I cut my teeth creating memes, way before I had a reddit account and way before /r/adviceanimals was created in late 2010. Back before I could get any sort of points or even username recognition, I was creating memes as a clever and easily digestible way to reflect on society, relate some story to my audience, or just be funny. Do you remember rich raven? No? I do. You probably don’t remember depression dog, crazy girlfriend praying mantis, introspective pug, or friendzone Johnny either. I remember all of them. In fact, you have only submitted two posts to adviceanimals garnering a total of just 4 points and have not commented there any time recently. So please, respect my judgement regarding the direction of the subreddit and the integrity of posts I have held dear to my heart for nearly 7 years but you have no strong feelings for.

real women are irrelevant and 2D love is superior

I would like to explain the situation and the hostility against Anita Sarkeesian and her Kickstarter.

Many of us who have been called trolls do not identify with real people. Accusations of workplace discrimination are meaningless to us. We’ve discarded petty pursuits such as trying to win the rat race, or even women.

We are hikkomori. To us, real women are irrelevant and 2D love is superior. Games (which are more simulations, actually) have already become complex enough to simulate beings that can love and give us affection. The three dimensional world is meaningless to us and for the most part, we leave it alone.

However, Sarkeesian crossed that line. Before I get into that, allow me to explain something.

Amongst those who have rejected 3D, we jokingly call real people “3DPD” (3D; pig disgusting) and use the Japanese word “waifu” to represent our fictional, simulated love interests.

Sarkeesian, again crossed that line. She insulted our waifus. This is why she was attacked ruthlessly. This is why 4chan was involved for the most part. Many of us hikkomori saw this as a needless assault of 3DPD attacking 2D and our very reason to exist. Most of us did NOT care about feminism until this line was crossed.

We realize that feminism wishes to eradicate the only thing that brings us happiness in this world that has rejected us. People like Anita picked the wrong people to mess with, and it wasn’t men out in the real world, it was innocent hikkomori who would have otherwise left you alone.

If you wish to learn more about the people who oppose you, simply read the news or even Wikipedia.
