Makes sense if you assume EY had a poor model of women's sexuality and romantic preferences, which is remarkably easy since most of pop culture is basically disinformation on the subject.

It would very much help if you could name three examples of each of your complaints, this would help you see if this really is the source of your unease. It would also help others figure out if you are right.

an uncomfortable air of superiority

Overestimating our rationality and generally feeling clearer thinkers than anyone ever? Or perhaps unwilling to update on outside ideas like Konkvistador recently complained?

a bit too much association with right wing politics.

There is a lot of right wing politics on the IRC channel, but overall I don't think I've seen much on the main site. On net the sites demographics are if anything remarkably left-wing.

Some of the PUA stuff is a bit weird (not discussed directly on the site so much but in related contexts)

The PUA stuff may come off as weird due to inferential distances or people accumulating strange ideas because they can't sanity check them. Both are the result of the community norm that sort now seems to strongly avoid gender issues because we've proven time and again to be incapable of discussing them as we do most other things. This is a pattern that seems to go back to the old OB days.

If this has anything to do with Eldritch abominations lurking in dark space or clandestine conspiracies and organizations with vast resource and advanced technology I think it is best you share this information with me.

Or you could just be your annoying self and refuse to be helpful by bridging inferential gaps. At least until I stomp on and break your ankles.

You need more paragon points before that will work.

Why is Will Newsome doing this? My model of him just broke.
