You guys. This is too much. Look at this guy. LOOK AT HIM.
Where do I begin? I’m kind of wondering whether I’m a bad person for being so amused at this guy. But he keeps on giving! He sets up a website to show us his ranting about the inferiority of everyone aside from able-bodied, heterosexual, gainfully employed white men, and then he casts himself as the underdog. He wants us to shield him from the financial consequences of showing his bigotry because he’s so important as an advocate of FREEEEE SPEEEEECH!
Some of us have a catch-phrase we use to point and laugh at people who think their shit is made of rubies and black truffles. The phrase is “Freeze Peach.” It refers to people who think the First Amendment of the American Constitution gives them the right to say anything they want, no matter how hateful, counter-factual, abusive or irrelevant, and never face any consequences for their assholery. The same people tend to think it’s perfectly fair, appropriate and non-hypocritical to fire-hose rape threats, death threats and other abuse every day, all year long, for years on end, at women who’ve complained about the way they and their friends are treated at conferences.
Then, he doesn’t have a PayPal account, and he thinks a real-time meeting of someone physically watching him use their money to pay his bills would be so much easier to arrange. I’m watching a trainwreck here. It’s a trainwreck who thinks he’s a rockstar.
“I’m gonna get my pie, and I won’t share it with any of you! I’m gonna get paid for being a ridiculous asshole, and live up to my reputation!”
He’s been unable for months to keep up with his power bills, and promising to pay someone $1500 for having found him a girlfriend? Let’s see how that’s supposed to work out?
He certainly doesn’t need to worry about attracting a woman who needs him for stability.
At the same time, I also think that if he expects someone to introduce him to a woman who is attractive enough to meet his standards, AND sympathetic enough to deal with him, AND who has a job with a reliable paycheck, he needs to offer a much bigger reward. It’ll take a lot more than $1500 of work to locate that unicorn.
With all the attention Romeo Rose has gotten, I predict that the Internet will come to the rescue and throw money at him, even while he is too clueless to set up a Paypal account. Someone will start a GoFundMe project to get him back on his feet, and people WILL donate to it. Some of the donors will be the “hipster racism” crowd who think it’s okay to be a bigot if you’re just being “ironic” about it. Most of the donors will be the Freeze Peach brigade who think they’re the guardians of Freedom of Expression for upholding the supremacy of yet another person who has to pat himself on the back for being cis male, hetero and white because he has no personal integrity, creativity or reading comprehension to offer.
