Imma go Web 2.0 on… your… arse. It doesn’t really work with an Australian accent.

Look who it is!
This is technically The Irate Gamer‘s fault. I’ll explain. The Irate Gamer is an inexplicably popular YouTube celebrity who earns his keep by getting angry at video games, despite not knowing anything about video games and being incapable of convincingly feigning anger. He also plagiarises a lot of his material from other reviewers.
Some people were, understandably, pissed off about this. They talked about it, left comments and got into arguments over it, but it was all quite vague. It wasn’t until people started making their own videos which pointed out his stolen material and lack of knowledge in no uncertain terms that the backlash against him really got moving.
So, this is me applying the same principle to the many, many Men’s Rights channels and videos that have cropped up on YouTube over the past few years. No leaving comments, no pressing “dislike”, no grumbling, no attempts to actually engage them in discussion, just destroying their credibility in a YouTube friendly format. There’s nothing in it anyone reading this won’t have heard before, mind, but at least it’s more watchable than any of Paul Elam’s original videos.
