An open letter to Milo Yiannopoulos

Willow Yang/Senior Staff

Dear Milo,

You don’t frighten me.

I’m going to take my heels off so I can get down to your level. Let’s cover some basic ground: your bleach job and concealer several shades too light don’t make you Aryan, it just makes you look like Gerard Way failing to get into a frat party. You’ve taken all your self-hatred, warped it, and levelled it at vulnerable people. I think you’re pathetic and sad.

I’m not going to waste time telling you that you’re a bigot. The faculty has pretty well covered why you shouldn’t come here in their open letters to the chancellor. Besides, being called a Nazi doesn’t appear to stop you or anyone else on the alt-right from doing a goddamn thing.

I ought to sue your “Dangerous Faggot” tour for misleading the public. The only thing you’re dangerous to is a skinhead’s self-esteem. The world is full of very dangerous faggots, but you are not one of them. I raise a glass to the real dangerous faggots, from the AIDS survivors and queer anarchists to the gender warriors and the mincers of Fire Island. Here’s to every disobedient queer body to ever walk the streets in defiance of state and society.

If we, the gender deviant, were not dangerous, you would not be so clearly threatened by us.

As I write this, Milo, I’ve got terrible period cramps, and I’m a bigger fag than you’ll ever be. Hell, I’m probably a better top than you.

I’ve hated you for a long time — being compared to you by some commenter on my column sent me into a rage for several hours — but the stunt you pulled against that young woman in Milwaukee was the last fucking straw.

If you’d like a transgender Berkeley student to direct your firehose of impotent rage at, I offer myself. Here’s the target on my back, so go ahead and take aim. I’m a Jewish anarchist drag queen with no eyebrows. The jokes write themselves. I dare you to put up pictures of me — it’s a matter of public record that I look fantastic. Tell that crowd to laugh at me. I’m not ashamed of my face or my body or my politics or my life choices.

Don’t you want to find something original to say? You can’t cut me down to size, I’m five foot two and chronically depressed. I dare you to say something about me that I haven’t already said about myself.

There’s a lot of pressure on the administration to cancel your appearance on this campus. I don’t think the administration will get in your way. They’re so terrified of looking biased that they’ll treat your “fellow traveler” ass like you have a point worth engaging with intellectually.

I’d like to address the real reason you’re coming here — Berkeley College Republicans, a pit of snakes, money and Pepe memes, agreed to host you, upping their game from the cardboard Trump cutout. I, for one, am just happy that their tacit white supremacism is now completely undeniable. They bring you here and then complain that It’s Going Down compiled their members’ public information and that UCPD would like to be compensated for the heightened security your presence on our campus will require. Hey BCR, what happened to Blue Lives Matter?

Frankly, I hope BCR gets their dads’ checkbooks out and raises the coin to bring you here. I hope our chancellor remains spineless in the face of justified faculty and student outrage.

When you get here on Feb. 1, we will be waiting here to strip you of your gay identity. You can have sex with all the men you want, but you’re not gay anymore. You’ve used your sexual orientation as an excuse to spit bile and galvanize cowards for long enough. Put your badge and gun on my desk. The community rejects you. You have never been one of us.

You never should have booked this UC tour, Milo. But you want to come to my town? I say, welcome to Berkeley, motherfucker. I’m the meanest gay on this coast. I was assigned to raise hell at birth. You come through me.

See you soon, Milo.

    I find it terribly amusing that anyone would attempt to accuse Milo of self loathing. Anyone who’s listened to him for longer than 10 seconds knows he’s really rather fond of himself. If you wanted to accuse him of borderline narcissism, I might nod in agreement. Still love him though, almost as much as he loves himself. Maybe rather than raging at being compared to him, you should learn something from him.

    • StartTheFire

      He has these moments though, where he admits to wanting a hetero family instead of his outrageous gay lifestyle. He might just be a fantastic actor, but he looks sad and it breaks my heart.

      • FirstPrinciples

        I’m sure sometimes he does. Having a family and your own kids with your wife is ultimately more fulfilling than any number of flings. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t still love himself for who he is.

  • G.E. Maynor

    Who died and left you in charge? You’re a poster child for everything wrong with our community. Unelected crybabies with no redeeming qualities. You and the rest of your ilk are an embarrassment to the hard working members that have quietly been fighting for equality in spite of your stupidity. Keep it civil??? It’s taking every last ounce of my strength not to tell you off like a Dutch Uncle you useless POS!

  • Lorri Anne

    Wow….. keep it up Neil and you’ll have 8 years of Trump instead of 4.

    • tomohawk52

      The amazing thing is all these supposedly clever, educated people just don’t seem to comprehend that simple fact.

      • soviet_dissident

        “clever, educated”

        By what standard?

        • tomohawk52

          Just ask them. ;-)

          • ATXpunk

            “Educated” means whatever social justicey gender/racial studies liberal arts degree they have.

          • Deana L. Burnside

            …I better get my glasses on…I read that as juicy gender and it made sense. Lol

        • Rusty

          I believe tomo was using sarcasm.

      • disqus_qKVofJNoeH

        That’s the good thing about being stupid – they’re too stupid to know they’re stupid.
        It’s like a portable safe space for them.

      • jbwilson24

        I would say ‘indoctrinated’ rather than ‘educated’. Modern universities (particularly the humanities) are turning into ideology factories.

        • tomohawk52

          It seems the sarcasm doesn’t lend itself well to this medium. Or I am really, really bad at it. Or both.

    • Rusty

      An then four more years of another Republican at this rate.

    And who are you to tell anyone whether they can have a gay identity or not? “The community rejects you”; please realise there is no “gay community”. There’s your community, and those like-minded. It is not (forgive the pun), one homogeneous community.

    Your opinion alone doesn’t mean Milo can’t be gay; unless you’re being so reductive as to suggest that being gay requires certain default political ideologies, which is inherently homophobic. Are you a homosexual homophobe? Or do you mean that people have no say over how they identify because they fail to meet certain criteria; as a trans person, surely you realise that this would be transphobic were someone to say it to you?

    • Simon McDonald

      A closet hetero???

  • 2wheeler

    I love how the progressives throw identity politics out the window when they don’t agree with your politics. A conservative black? You’re an Uncle Tom. A conservative gay? You’re not really gay. There is no tolerance for diversity of opinion, only for color and sexual orientation…and then only if your beliefs are in lock step with theirs.

    It’s really pretty pathetic.

    • William

      So gay is not a sexual preference but now a culture….and one determined by its members who in turn limit membership. Not bad for people who claimed being gay wasn’t a choice. But as a side note, choosing one of 35 available gender options apparently is a choice.

      • Mike Brasher

        35 gender choices? WRONG! There’s only 2! And if this Twinkie doesn’t like it, too fvcking bad!

      • I wonder if SJWs are going to be the same way with someone with a mental handicap. I’m an aspie, so I don’t have severe autism (my cousin does, though), but I wonder if they’re going to use mentally handicapped or mentally ill people as pawns for self-serving political agendas. That mother of an autistic son, who was offended by Trump “mocking” a mentally handicapped–I’m just going to say retarded (not the epithet) to shorten the comment–journalist and changed her vote because there’s “nothing funny about ‘flappy hands'” reminds me of the Religious Right moral panic-type people who blame video games for mass shootings (while I am a conservative Christian, I’m not going to get all Puritan on those who disagree nor do away with individual freedom of choices. Parents having their teens use birth control or not is a huge dilemma that they have to make. Teens will rebel and you can’t keep an eye on them all the time. I’m saving myself because I have the willpower to do so and its my choice. I also listen to hard rock and metal, thank you dad.). She overreacted to his response, which wasn’t personal and he was mocking the media *in general*. I didn’t take it seriously since I saw it as words and not action, despite it being difficult for me to adequately read people correctly. Words don’t hurt you physically. Toughen up!

        • Bryant Steury

          “I wonder if SJWs are going to be the same way with someone with a mental handicap” – smart money is on absolutely.

          • Azure Helios

            Yep, it has nothing to do with the person they are judging, and everything to do with the SJW.

          • William

            Because Progressives and SJWs always need a new “vulnerable, dejected” group to hang their collective hat on.

        • Burn Baby Burn

      • disqus_v3SHzvCspj

        I have strongly suggested that in case of confusion, the restrooms should be marked ‘XX’ and ‘XY’ thereby avoiding any mistakes. Either that or make occupancy one.

        • William

          Just build an open trench and let the public decide for themselves. quite frankly – someone who is open about their sexuality, gender choice(s), and change in body parts shouldn’t really be shy about where and by whom to pee.

      • Lilian Halcombe

        That’s what these people believe. They are gay because they “identify” as gay.

    • Azure Helios

      Well, it’s very simple, you just have to realize that they have no morals, ethics, or standards whatsoever.

      Absolutely everything they do and say is based on what feels good for them at that moment. Entirely emotion, no foresight whatsoever.

      Literally not human. By behavior, they are animals that can speak, and not even relatively smart animals like cats or dogs. At least those can be house trained.

      • jj_dynomite_1

        It’s not really “what feels good for them.” To really pursue this end is being iconoclastic, that’s being Milo. And in some circumstances, that’s being courageous.

        What these Leftards are doing is framing discourse for their group by virtue signaling, and censoring others — and even more ridiculous, censoring themselves — to prove their SJW bonafides. They are the enemies of free thought and free inquiry, and should be mocked wherever and whenever possible. This comments section is a good start.

  • Sicks5

    Hey author, you are stupid. Trying to insult someone who thrives on insults is like putting out a fire with gasoline. Stop trying to use Milo’s fame to increase yours. No one knows who you are and it will remain that way.

  • Tommy Exoque Stevenson

    Starts the entire article with insults, shows exactly why leftards are losing ground in the world. No real argument and no clue what is really going on, blinded by hate because the media tells them to hate.

  • Scott Grim

    Sounds like Neil is, to the contrary, quite scared, lol. The dog that barks the loudest has the most fear…

  • Mr Degenerate

    Probably the most awkward article I’ve ever read, whoever wrote this garbage you’re about as articulate as a autistic child throwing a tantrum.

  • huh_monkey

    The mere fact that you took time out of your day to respond to Milo means he is in your head….and you’re probably secretly in love with him .

  • kevin chagnot

    A for effort but in this crybaby rendition of trying to bash milo is a sorry excuse for a liberal true liberals were our founding fathers NOT modern day liberals

  • Grandma

    Poorly educated troll you are Neil. You don’t even know the meaning of most of the words you use so indiscriminately. If you don’t like Milo, just ignore him and save yourself the trouble of showing how hopelessly ignorant you are.

    Hey (insert mental illness disguised as gender here). All one has to do is hurt your feelings and then you’re off to the surgeon again to “feel good about yourself”. You scare no one but a gynecologist.

  • popehentai

    I love how people like this consistently attack Milo, but never actually refute anything he says.

    • Donald Johnson

      That’s why it’s all personal attacks. The snowflake who wrote this article has actually never listened to Milo. He (or is it She? Or Ze? I get that so confused nowadays) heard that it was “Queer Politically Correct” to “hate on” Milo. Probably got this little snowflake some Street Credit down at the local dance club… Now, if only this little snowflake would close off the hate, open their mind, and listen…. Maybe they wouldn’t be so filled with hate…

      • popehentai

        I actually had a recent argument where someone DID quote Milo… but it was so out of context as to be almost humorous. Paraphrasing Milo, he had said that “being ‘out’ has made America stupider”. and indeed he did…. and then he goes on the say that homosexual have generally higher I.Q.s (the numbers bear this out) and that by not being in hiding and having children those genes are going unpassed to the detriment of the general populace. funny how different that original statement looks in context, right?

        • disqus_v3SHzvCspj

          jukes v Kalikaks again? Nature v nurture again? ‘Homosexual gene’ being a hereditory deadend? So the more gays, the stupider the human race gets? You lost me somewhere.

          • popehentai

            Lets back up a bit then….. in previous history homosexuals would often have families. Wives and children.Often called “beards” as in they were a faux cover of masculinty whilst hiding in the closet. Homosexuals score higher on I.Q. tests according to various studies on the matter. You can argue if intelligence is genetic or not, but for the purpose of this argument we will assume there is a genetic component.

            So his argument is, that with homosexuals NOT having to have families as a cover, the inherently intelligent genetic material is being lost, and literally shot up the pooper. Those genes for intelligence are not passed on to another generation (even a potentially straight one), because of open homosexuality. I suppose it is slightly similar to the Kalikaks and Jukes, just for intelligence instead of stupidity. if youre interested in his actual article the title was “Gay Rights Have Made Us Dumber, It’s Time to Get Back in the Closet”. I’d add the link but i dont know how the moderators on this site feel about that sort of thing.

      • EJ

        I dunno. Last time I bothered trying to respect someone’s pronouns, they kept referring to me (cis male) with derogatory and misogynistic terms for women. Needless to say none of those slurs were my preferred pronoun (and I’m not too crazy about being deliberately misgendered either) so all zhit has ever gotten out of me since then is the word “zhunt.”

        Looks like that’s just standard fare with outraged lib weenies foaming at the mouth about how we should all come correct. But oh not them, they can say whatever they want eh.

    • Randal H Dees

      Ain’t that the damn truth!

  • Kiran Buenafe

    Oh no, not a special snowflake tough guy. Be careful. He might throw a tantrum and do nothing. Ohp, too late. He already did.

  • Kimberly

    Looks like someone needs to get laid. And Milo isn’t a top so you are probably right there.

  • PleaseKillMe

    If Milo doesn’t frighten you and you find him to be inconsequential, why write an entire hit piece on him? Someone who doesn’t buy into the groupthink dogma of gay special interest groups becoming popular does in fact frighten you. Quit lying.

    • ronehjr

      Since the regressive left thinks everything is hitler they are terrified of everything.

      Not at all.

      Liberals and progressives despise ppl who, like Milo, are racist, transphobic, homophobic, misogynistic, & supporters of a demagogue like the the Bigoted Blowhard about to become POTUS.

      He, like all other white supremacists are utter trash who think they are superior but really are not fit to be scraped off our shoes.

      • The left immediately lists those accusations towards anyone they disagree with. At this point it’s nothing more than a verbal tic.

        Perhaps you could convince me otherwise if you had any evidence that he is in fact a white supremacist. I’m a liberal and have no problem with Milo’s right to free speech. In fact I encourage him triggering regressive snowflakes. I think it’s quite necessary.

    Liberals are so hateful when their own demographic don’t follow their politics and no his politics aren’t based on hating homosexuals or minorities – I don’t care what you want to make up in your little head to give you the cognitive dissonance to think that.

    A+ for effort, D- for execution. Welcome to the cesspool of Milo think pieces which focus on feelings (of which you have multitudes) than facts (your writing suggests you’ve never seen a lecture of his). Milo’s growing popularity is exposing the empty and platitude-ridden nature of outrage pieces – and their waning effectiveness. Love, a former progressive.

    • Bobby Nelson

      (Slow clap)

    • “you’re not gay anymore” – And in today’s news, transgender SJW activist confirms Milo’s assertion that being gay is a mix of nurture and nature. ROFL!

      • Azure Helios

        Actually this goes a step further, in that he’s saying it’s at the very least PRIMARILY nurture.

      • disqus_v3SHzvCspj

        Nurture, nature and choice; IMHO.

    • MomaBee

      I am curious to know how many other progressives and/or liberals (gay or otherwise) are leaving the radical left and their thought-police SJW’s? Such an epic fail on the part of the left.

      • Grant Horne

        Got one right here. Love the policies. Hate the people. I would be okay with the pants-shitting and idiotic outrage in a vacuum – but since I’m vilified because of who I am (proud straight white male) and because I’m not ideologically pure – I’ve rather lost interest in being an “ally.” Sad!

        • Olivia Weaver-Thomas

          True. As a straight ally (and a proud independent), I think it’s pretty sad that the left is becoming filled more and more with all of these crybaby SJW’s every day. It’s really funny for me to say this, considering that I used to be one. I actually ended up growing up and realizing how toxic the regressive left was becoming, and I just pretty much said “Peace out!”

      • ATXpunk

        You can count me in that group. I bailed in the fall of 2015. I voted for Obama FIVE times (2004 primary, general for IL Senate, 2008 primary, general President, 2012 President) but I couldn’t take the virtue signaling from the phony SJW crowd. To the right I now go.

        Based on how many are suddenly showing up at Conservative and Republican gatherings over the past year or two, you might be surprised. Apparently the catering service is much better on the Right. We can eat meat, and nobody uses the terms Organically Grown or Macrobiotic. Here, have a Cheeseburger on us.

        Count me. Life long Dem voter. Sick of the left’s political correctness. Voted for Trump. Have now been excommunicated from the gay world for my heresy.

        • disqus_v3SHzvCspj

          How do you do that? Milo is living proof that being gay is not synonymous with being progressive. In fact many tend conservative as they mature.

        • DumbMonkey

          So it is a religion, or member seem to view it as such?

          • David Stephenson

            Have you never heard of one’s “gay card” being revoked? lol

        • JSpicoli

          Thanks for being woke. Don’t worry, you are just an early adopter. Soon you will be an OG hero.

        Founding member of my first university’s social justice club here. Been to many protests… WTO, Quebec, etc etc. Can’t stand modern leftists at all anymore. Although I am now hostile to socialism and communism, at least the old generation like Parenti and Chomsky would sit down and have a discussion. These millennial left wingers are like spoiled children who can’t debate without degenerating into a heaving mass of insult-spewing emotion.

        • Azure Helios

          That’s because emotion is the ultimate core of it, underneath all the rationalizations.

          Many people are too stupid to even follow the rationalizations, but they’ll still chomp on the emotions.

          • disqus_v3SHzvCspj

            or the money.

        Wife and I both voted for Trump after a lifetime of voting straight ticket Democrat.

        My number one issues were probably Title IX overreach, bias response teams, mandatory “diversity” training, etc, that all contributed to not just a chilling effect on campus, but active censorship of opinions that fell outside the intersectional/critical theory religious ideology, and the accelerating unchecked advancement of this frighteningly deleterious ideology well outside of academia.

        Ultimately, it seemed like Democrats had grown intellectually lazy, presuming that reason was on their side. Too many came to believe that “reality has a liberal bias” was an innate truth, rather than something that could only be remotely true if one performed constant reappraisal of the evidence for your beliefs.

      • Founding Fathers Rule

        I bailed after 2004. Couldn’t stand the thought of another 4 years of Bush, but then realized the Democrats were going to be worse.

      • Ribb Rotgut

        Right here. Left the liberal label a year ago, now a left-leaning moderate.

      • Quinx

        Me! +1

      • Devon

        Congrats, you’re a moderate liberal like the rest of us.

        I think we’re a much bigger group too…just not as noisy as the author of this pile of poo and the like.

      • Liminal

        I’m not leaving the left no matter how much they call me alt right.

        The truth is I am and always have been a traditional liberal, someone who cares about liberity of people, cares about equality, cares about society.

        While they label this as “alt-right” the reality is, it’s them who is “Alt-left”, they are literally ruled by people who give tax breaks to big business, who exploit minorities, who wage war and murder. They insist that this be accepted as a leader….I’m sorry She is no Liberal or progressive, she never has been, she is a wolf in sheeps clothing.

        Though I do face a problem when voting now because so much of the left is infected by this totalitarian, toxic and often right wing mentality. With Comrade Corbyn ensuring his dictatorship over the Labour party while praising people like Castro as heros, I’m at a loss on where to vote, if I vote anyone else I’m only giving opportunity to fringe groups that are bigots or morons at best or just handing another 5 years to conservatives. So called “Liberals” have left us with no choice, at this rate I might as well urinate in the ballot box for all the good it’ll do. These “Liberals” should be demanding better but they don’t want it and anyone who does they slander til they either drive them to the other side or indoctrinate them.

        • Burn Baby Burn

          Classical Liberal is what you would and always have considered yourself then. Just in case you ever wanted to know if there was a name for that.

        • Harland

          Please use the term “Ctrl-Left” instead, it makes a nice contrast to “Alt-Right” and is more descriptive as well. :)

      • PepeThe Great

        At beginning of 2016 I used to compare Trump to Hitler, but on election day I was joyful as if Christmas came early. I’ve always found SJWs annoying, but still heavily supported left. Not anymore. It’s insane how much my political views changed during this election season.

        • ATXpunk

          Not that insane based on the election results… happened to millions of people.

      • Meittimies

        SJWs are like Emoes, eventually people grow up and hope their past will never be remembered by anyone.

      • Anne0135

        Progressives and Liberalism today are as fashionable as “Mom jeans”.

      • MosesZD

        You can count me as part of that exodus. The SJW-left is, quite possibly, even more vile than the religious right at this point.

        In fact this writer, with a small message change, could probably get a job as a speech writer for the Westboro Baptist Church. Because it’s all about hate and playing to rumors, lies and stereotypes and definitely light on facts and argument.

        • JSpicoli

          They are equal to the religious right, but the RR never had the MSM full scale carrying their water. Its a dangerous trend I’m glad we moved away from. Hopefully the move is permanent.

      • Kevin Brookes

        I was a lazy leftist (they’re all lazy or crazy) for years, now i’m interested in politics i’m going further right by the day. i’m so glad wiser people than me voted for brexit!

      • Nick Slaughter

        We’ve always had to deal with the looney left and Dems being grouped with them even if they vote Green or not at all. We’ll accept their help if they wannabit won’t miss them if they’d rather spend time being petty.

      • Anonymous_anon

        <– Well here's another

    • Kristen Seeb

      “growing popularity”??? Gag me. So wrong.

      Once a troll, always a troll… the Ann Coulter of gay boys.

      • ATXpunk

        That’s an undisputable fact. I mean you progs are writing essays about him aren’t you?

      • Morris Hudson

        I don’t see you on TV.

      • sgrice1

        He’s constantly in the news and has a massive following. I would call that growing popularity.

      • chucky

        Do YOU have a book on the Amazon bestseller list? Nah, didn’t think so.

      • jmi0112

        You’re obsessed. The first step is admitting that you have a problem.

      • UncleJoe223

        Do you enjoy being wrong with such bravado? Embarrassing…

    • UncleJoe223

      Bravo. Well spoken.

    • red

      Popularity? Anyone vile enough to appreciate his hate and bigotry has already tuned in. Now he is only making decent people aware of his odious existence. Buh By

    • JSpicoli

      Thanks for being woke
