    Rudy "Hugh Mungus" Pantoja Is Running For Seattle City Council

    So, remember Hugh Mungus, the guy who made a dad joke and had a screeching harpy of a feminazi nearly claw his eyes out in response? He's decided to run for an empty seat on the Seattle City Council. But of course, he's not running unopposed. While it would be narratively perfect for him to run against Zarna Joshi, he's actually running against a gender activist named Mac McGregor, who has a nickname too: "the Gender Sensei". Knowing how liberal Seattle is, McGregor is the favored to win, but Seattle does have a conservative base too, so who knows?

    On a side note, no matter which way you lean politically, why the FUCK would you EVER want to be known as "the Gender Sensei"? What the fuck does that even mean?

    There's a huge difference between a handle/screenname vs a nickname known to people that vote for you.

    If anything, the screen name is worse given that you were free to choose whatever you wanted and nicknames are generally given to you by others.

    How is it worse? A screen name isn't something that follows you around much more than wherever you use it. If we found out you were called "the kitten slinger" in real life by a large percentage of the town, we'd probably think of that more than Nixx.

    How do you not get what Gender Sensei means ... it seems pretty straight forward like Video Game Wizard.

    I don't live in the US, but I'll say this: you don't know if Pantoja is actually that conservative, and you don't need to be conservative to vote against an authoritarian regressive leftist. You just need to hate them enough. Because I am definitely a liberal and rather left on the spectrum, especially by American standards, but I'm not an authoritarian, I'm not regressive, and I don't consider the gender thing anywhere close enough to important to base any policy on it.

    So what? Literally what does it matter? Names are just semi-unique labels used to refer to people when not speaking directly to them. So long as the name is not some attempt to disparage the person, it doesn't matter if their name is Bill or Ted or Tom or Janet or Kathy or Fudgy McGoogoo Lips Esq. The content of the name, despite the occasional attempt to communicate something, is pretty much irrelevant. You guys get hung up on the pettiest piddly shit.

    Isn't a white person calling themselves "gender sensei" appropriating Japanese culture?

    Also, yeah, the name with the D next to it will automatically win in Seattle and King County in general. He could be a mass murdering killer klown and he'd win if he ran as a Democrat here.
