what[edit]

Um, this is a Poe. Not a great one, but still - David Gerard (talk) 11:34, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

The article or the individual?--Greenrd (talk) 16:33, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

So...[edit]

"Like his geek-girl co-conspirator Hbdchick, JayMan is evidence of the horrendous pressures facing vulnerable oppressed communities of color, gender and sexuality under the hegemony of white racist and heterosexist patriarchy. He may be regarded as a prime example of Stockholm Syndrome, whereby victims come to identify with their oppressors and work for causes dear to the oppressors' hate-filled hearts."

A black man/POC or a woman not agreeing with certain ideas held by the white male majority population has no independent agency, no mind of his/her own and no ability to form his/her own conclusions, he/she's simply a mentally ill person who doesn't know what she/he's doing.

Sounds a bit like drapetomania and hysteria to me. 213.113.118.5 (talk) 11:10, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Not every opinion or perspective deserves equal credibility, and racialism is one of those things that isn't a sound conclusion to come to. He isn't the first to come to this kind of conclusion, W.E.B. DuBois was writing about a similar phenomenon decades ago - that to some other black intellectuals, he was perceived to be a "top 10%" black man and that the rest of the black race was a problem. JayMan and others' perspective is very obviously influenced by old school American white supremacy and really isn't a very healthy perspective for someone who doesn't benefit from white supremacy to hold.

Rational? Really?[edit]

I laughed out loud the first time I read the entry for JayMan here. Great parody of an intersectionalist, pearl-clutching, and frantically virtue signalling, American liberal of the Obama/Clinton school! When I realized it wasn't meant as a joke I laughed even louder and longer...so thanks for that! A problem you face, however, is the name of this "project" and the content of the articles don't match. There is nothing rational about jumping up and down screaming "no.. that's wrong and you're an idiot, a racist, a self-hating member of a patronizable minority group!" Don't agree with JayMan? Great..than refute his arguments using, logic and reason or you don't have a leg to stand on.User4565 (talk) 00:24, 15 May 2017 (UTC) Edit: Wait, did I just fall for a Poe? Setting traps like that is oppression of mental space and I don't think it's funny! I bet you are racist too! And beat your wife/Brony bro lover!
