    And you guys really need to see his bio page

... of course the guy who wrote that post has a giant photo of himself wearing a trilby on his about page.

I understand why you'd make that remark, but is it necessary?

Maybe it's just my former neckbeard talking, but I think that caricature is going too far, and will create more Elliot Rogers types.

My take on that is that a Trilby/Fedora hat is a form of virtue signalling, and therefore open to mockery.

Next time some schmuck shoots up a school, lets examine his internet history and see how many times he was called 'neckbeard.'

I bet it's going to be a lot.

My youth:

Not many of us shot up schools.

I'm not sure the two are comparable.

There were/are emo girls.

I think I missed a conversational turn somewhere, but yes, there were goth (emo! you wound me!) girls. I submit that there are also women with difficulties socializing in person who spend a lot of time on the Internet too, though it's not clear to me what they have to do with the correlation between funny hats and naively confusing right wing politics with human nature, bloviating bloggers in general, or school shootings.

There are, but they hate the guys in fedoras.

Goth girls (Sorry about the confusion!) like goth guys, and vice versa. Foreveralone guys, on the whole, would like foreveralone girls, but foreveralone girls outright hate foreveralone guys. The foreveralone for women subreddit for example has blocked all members of regular /r/foreveralone (The male version) from contacting them.

It's not 'one big community of men and women that are ostracized' it's 'Ostracized men' and 'ostracized women' and both of those groups are antagonistic towards each other as well the world at large. (NORMIES REEEEE)
