That was a total tangent from the thread... but it might offer some insight into some of the people who try to form the Cult of Roger. And then become outraged when you won't play Guru Daddy for them.

I, for one, appreciate the luxurious benefits of TGRR fanclub membership...like being one of the first ones informed when it's time to buy merchandise! And lists of people Roger hates! Out-of-focus pics of Roger leering into the camera! And I can rest easy at night because I know with my name on the mailing list, I will never miss an opportunity to answer limited-edition surveys from Roger's fine affiliates who want to hear MY opinion on how they should market their quality products!

Yes. This. Kind of a sociopathic internet Fatal Attraction thing.

She's much better now, which is why she finally left, and naturally he's incensed that she would DARE to leave him. And now that another man has soiled his property taken his ex-girlfriend on a couple of dates, he can't stop flipping out about what a bad, bad, evil woman she is.

Something I've noticed:  When a breakup happens, and people move on, the person who starts dating first inspires massive butthurt in the other person, as it implies that the person who hasn't found someone might be the one who came up short in the relationship.  Most people just grit their teeth and move on.

There's no excuse for the shit this guy pulled, but the butthurt driving his shitbag behavior isn't too mysterious.

The funny thing is, I've always insisted that people be their own guru.

"And how shall we do that?"

I don't know, I think people get caught off guard when they have certain standards, and the people they've known had those standards, so they're just not expecting it. Like all those old Indians thinking the treaties were real, or assuming somebody's not a pedo because they seem like anybody else. I don't know, I guess it's kind of a choice between having really minimal interactions with anybody, or taking a chance on getting fucked over at some point.

Yes, I think that a lot of the behavior is a reflection of totally normal post-breakup freakout. I was crazy and angry as hell after my breakup with ML, and I'm the one who broke up with him. I'm still angry at him, actually.

Was it ML that was all like, "yeah basically all dudes solicit a prostitute at some point; it's pretty much a universal guy thing"? Or am I thinking of a different assclown?

Yeah, that was him. He left me more scarred and freaked out by men after 11 months than any of the rest of them. Even Pez, who is a world-renowned dick to the point where I get random texts at least twice a week from someone he's irritated, and we've been divorced for twelve years.

I guess I'm not a guy.

Yeah I thought so. So for the record, I'm still angry at him too, and I don't even know the dork. In one fell swoop he insulted me and everyone else with a penis.

When Freeky and I met Nigel & ML, within 20 minutes we were like "What is she DOING with this pretentious boob?".

But you can't really say anything like that.

And yeah, that pissed me off, too.  I mean, if he feels the need to buy someone's body for a while, great.  Don't project that sort of sociopathy on me.

FBF came up with a great term for him; ponytail misogynist.

I think it pretty much says it all.
