A story of Bravery of Love


Now I could use this bizarre piece of news to start a rant on modern women. Or perhaps to make fun of the PUA movement of men worldwide who can’t get laid, while this guy without limbs has landed a hot wife. Agnostic would start a rant on how evil and depraved Asian women are, willing to marry any disgusting white men to gain notoriety.

None of this would make much sense. Because there’s nothing particularly modern, or Asian, about this phenomenon. I always remember first reading about the original Siamese Twins, Chang and Eng Bunker. A guy without limbs is quite seriously weird, and I can’t help a grin when thinking on how they manage to have sex. But hey the guy’s face is not half ugly. But Conjoined Twins from Siam, in the United States in 1840? That’s seriously weird. Yet they got married! To two women, that is. Sisters, actually. And they had a huge bunch of kids!

Determined to start living a normal life as much as possible, the brothers settled on a plantation, bought slaves,[6] and adopted the name “Bunker”. On April 13, 1843, they married two sisters: Chang to Adelaide Yates and Eng to Sarah Anne Yates.

Their Traphill home is where they shared a bed built for four. Chang and his wife had 10 children; Eng and his wife had 11. In time, the wives squabbled[7] and eventually two separate households were set up just west of Mount Airy, North Carolina in the community of White Plains – the twins would alternate spending three days at each home. During the American Civil War, Chang’s son Christopher and Eng’s son Stephen both fought for the Confederacy. Chang and Eng lost part of their property as a result of the war, and were very bitter in their denunciation of the government in consequence.

You can’t make this shit up.

There was also a story in Reddit lately of a guy with two penises. He tells his life story, of continuous tremendous sexual success. If I remember correctly he claimed to be in a relationship with a couple, man and woman. They were already a couple when he got in, the guy allegedly was straight until he met him, then suddenly felt inescapably attracted to his double dick. Go figure.

Jim has a good post on Trannies, and how fucked up in the head they’re are. What’s worse is a LW minion coming in the thread to defend trannies because, you know, they have feelings and stuff. That would be easily dismissable as just an annoying troll, if the smart kids at LW hadn’t made a huge public party of just how fucked up in the head they are all are. Party held in the home of Scott Alexander who is banging (or being banged by) a tranny.

I presume everybody knows Greg Cochran’s theory of a homo germ; some brain parasite that makes people’s sexual wiring go awry. He knows his genetics and his math better than I do, so I’m always willing to listen to him. But it seems to me that sexual taste in (some) people is, for some reason, prone to deviancy. Being famous and owning a plantation will make any woman willing to have sex with you. And the plethora of paraphilias which exist in men is just too disturbing to describe in detail.

At first thought it seems that liberal society exacerbates the range and intensity of paraphilias. But that may be just because we have better data; or just that people don’t care about sexual mores as much as they used to. Then again this doesn’t disprove a germ theory; it might just be the case that there’s a whole lot of germs around. Who knows. I don’t think I really want to know.

    How to tell if you’re a glass half full or half empty personality:

    “Whoa, no limbs. That sucks. Makes me feel happy and grateful for what I have. I’m going to complain less.”

    “Whoa. Even no-limbs-dude can get laid when I struck out at the bar last night. What the heck is wrong? FML”

    • spandrell April 12, 2014 at 13:18

      My first reaction was: “wtf is the guy doing in the beach? Of all places?”

      • Handle April 12, 2014 at 15:38

        Heh. Yeah, my father once told me that when looking any image, always imagine the photographer or cameraman too. (Today i think we’d add the photo shopper and editor) It makes you think of how concocted vs candid that whole moment is, and to neutralize a lot of the insidious effect of the tendency to drop your guard and emotionally connect with the portrayal as if it were an accidental capture of a genuine moment, which is how the insidious manipulation works.

        Maybe dad planted the anti-bullshit acorn early with these little tips, and it’s grown into the oak of my adult personality.

    Let’s wish the man some happiness and remember a Hot Wife is still a wife.

    In all of these examples, notoreity gets success. This is why nameless Blacks shoot each other in the gutters (for some reason, Whites feel a calling to get jobs even if they don’t pay well or get their name out there). It’s also why the Temple of Artemis was burned; the damnatio memoriae doesn’t seem to have worked, but the execution may have. Well, damnation memoriae prevented his brothers and cousins from bragging about it.

    Robert Kardashian is famous for helping OJ Simpson get away with murder. His daughters are famous for marrying rappers.

    Scott Alexander is banging a tranny? Really? He keeps saying he’s asexual.

    • jamesd127 April 13, 2014 at 00:37

      No one is asexual. Some males, quite a lot of males, are incapable of penetrating. If incapable of penetrating, you are going to find some other way of getting your jollies.

      • Contaminated NEET April 13, 2014 at 08:39

        No argument there; all I’m saying is I’ve seen SA say he’s asexual more than once. How does he square that with banging a tranny? And when and where did he ever admit to banging a tranny? OK, “admit” is probably the wrong word, “boast” is more likely, but I haven’t seen either.

        • throwaway April 13, 2014 at 08:54

          Most recently in his public OKCupid profile.

          • Contaminated NEET April 13, 2014 at 09:11

            Yikes, that poor bastard is too smart and well-socialized for his own good. I see I was right that it would be a boast, but it’s a tasteful and understated boast at least – yet another way SA has reached a higher evolutionary level than the rest of us.

            • spandrell April 13, 2014 at 09:20

              I thought evolutionary fitness was about having more offspring.

              • Contaminated NEET April 13, 2014 at 10:27

                You’re right of course. I meant it in the vague Star Trek: TNG manner in which species attain ever greater moral, scientific, and spiritual development and eventually “evolve” into beings of pure energy. Look at it for five seconds and it’s obviously a load of nonsensical progressive propaganda, but it’s floating around out there in the zeitgeist.

            • Dan April 14, 2014 at 23:01

              He writes in his profile:

              “Doesn’t have kids, but might want them”

              This is actually why I think civilization might, just might, continue. Biological imperative seems to be eking out the win, even in this guy. He is looking for women age 25-35, specifically. He’s a smart medical doctor in an era when most single men are unemployed or underemployed, and my money is that he settles down with conventional monogamy to a lovely feminine wife in a cis-marriage with some smart kids, a 30 year mortage, and private school if he can afford it. The wife may not even have to work.

              • spandrell April 15, 2014 at 08:02

                Wanna bet he ends up adopting an African baby and raising it together with Ozy and their fleeting polyamorous lovers?

              • Dan April 15, 2014 at 12:23

                “Wanna bet…”

                I’d take that bet. That is not happening. He has been darkly enlightened after all. Once you see the truth, you can’t just un-know it, barring a head injury.

              • asdf April 15, 2014 at 17:22

                TFR amongst high IQ liberals is something like 0.68. Probably worse for these freaks.

        • Steve Johnson April 13, 2014 at 09:04

          He’s mentioned in multiple places to being in a relationship with ozymandias who has mentioned that he’s “trans” (here – ).

          He also strangely refers to him as his “girlfriend”.

    • throwaway April 15, 2014 at 02:35

      Scott’s tranny “girl”friend posts a picture.

  6. Brian April 13, 2014 at 04:47

    Agnostic is actually part Asian. He’s one of those types that tries extra hard to fit in, like part-Jews that become Nazis. In his case, with the right-wing/racialist white guys he hangs out with online.

    • spandrell April 13, 2014 at 06:44

      I know. Nothing wrong with having right wing friends though. Agnostic is entitled to his taste.

      • Toddy Cat April 16, 2014 at 17:36

        The only thing wrong with Agnostic is that he has this theory of everything involving social cycles, and he tries to jam everything he observes into his pet theory, Which is too bad, seeing as how he’s a good observer and a pretty smart guy.

        • Steve Johnson April 16, 2014 at 17:59

          Only during falling crime times would someone say that about his blogging.

        • spandrell April 17, 2014 at 06:30

          Some people see faces everywhere; acute pattern recognition skills cut both ways.

          I thin it’s good that there’s a few people out there with pet theories which are 80% wrong, but also point out to a 20% which nobody else has noticed.

  7. Van Phauc April 13, 2014 at 16:28

    Nietzsche + Roissy + hanging around with American Evangelicals tells you all you need to know about the “Life Without Limbs” guy and why he has a hot wife. Thanks for making us think about it though.

    Evangelicals idolize him. He’s like a saint to them. He’s quite literally their version of the progressive’s “Black, Jewish lesbian in a wheel chair”. Women are attracted to high social status and within a certain group he has that in spades. Christians enable him to make a good living just by doing stuff without limbs, acting happy and talking about Christian stuff. They buy DVDs and pay to go see him doing mundane stuff, giving mundane and excessively happy talks.

    Which is nice for him, but has to make you ask “Where is this headed?” Where is society going to go when being born with no limbs, doing mundane stuff, acting happy and giving mundane talks is ultra-high status?

    One direction in which that society could go is obvious. Low status men chopping off appendages and giving TED talks to gain social status. And that’s a hilarious yet depressing confirmation of Nietzsche, Roissy, B and the semi-controversial ultra-Calvinism thesis put forward by Moldbug.

    We’ve probably evolved to find biological fluids icky for epidemiological reason. But since sex involves fluids galore, we are also evolved to overcome our squick factor in sex. I figure that in some people the overcoming sex factor is hypertrophied, or else the wiring is reversed.

  9. Dan April 15, 2014 at 12:32

    Commenting on Nick Vujicic’s wife, she isn’t that far out there, in my opinion. He is rich and famous, and probably has mostly good genes. In any event, he didn’t pass on his condition to their son.

    She is happy, not because she’s a perv but because she gets happiness and optimism from her faith, which he provides in spades.

    • asdf April 15, 2014 at 17:26

      Indeed. If he had limbs, he’d be attractive. So as long as one doesn’t have reason to believe it will be passed on to the children he probably represents a buy low option on the whole package of rich, famous, otherwise good genes. He may also be a good person to be around, many disabled people, if they are otherwise normal, are often good people (much more humble and with better perspective). I’m sure the sex is weird, but I bet the money helps them overcome many of the problems the disability represents.

  10. anon April 17, 2014 at 01:50

    For posterity, Scott’s girlfriend is a biological female (who he presumably cuddles).

    • Contaminated NEET April 17, 2014 at 08:22

      How did “cuddles” become such a popular word? People seem to think it’s a cute, endearing word for adult-adult intimacy, but it’s just infantile, affected, and twee. We’re adults here. I think agnostic’s theory can explain this one pretty well.

    • slatestarcodex April 21, 2014 at 00:25

      You HAD to tell him? We were having so much fun watching Spandrell drive himself into ever-more-frothing levels of horror and revulsion at our boring heterosexual relationship.

      NEET: What word is the alternative to cuddle?

      • Contaminated NEET April 21, 2014 at 02:22

        Caress, embrace, fondle.

        Anyway, just to satisfy my morbid, psychologically unhealthy, primitive, regressive curiosity: have you ever had sexual relations with a transsexual? It’s all very ambiguous and unclear right now.

  11. spandrell April 22, 2014 at 13:59

    My purity foundation is telling me to burn this thread to the ground.
