Why I Like Damsels in Distress

The damsel in distress is one of the most criticized tropes in the modern era. It is considered the ultimate misogyny, and creators often apologize for using it by claiming that the damsel is “strong” and “not a helpless woman,” or by making the damsel match or outclass the male hero in some skill. Creators often avoid this trope to establish their modern, 21st-century street cred.

Well, I’m here to say that I’m a great fan of this supposedly evil trope, no matter how it is done. It pains me to watch creators squirm whenever they’re attacked for writing damsels; they should stand by their work.

Doxing is Spelled With One X

This may come as a no-brainer to some, but there’s been a disturbing trend rising from illiterate corners of the Internet that can’t be ignored: people spelling ‘doxing’ as ‘doxxing’. It’s time to put this argument to rest and find a final solution to the doxing question.

Veteran Marine Fleeces $8200+ on Gofundme in Fake Cancer Scam

Welcome to another week of shitposting here on TheRalphRetort.com. I spent most of yesterday watching wrestling, which doesn’t lend itself to productivity. Thankfully, my readers send me interesting stuff all the time. Last night was one of those times. I’ll let the email give it...

Ruthless Sneak Attack In Richmond Leaves State Trooper Dead

I’m not from Richmond, Virginia, but I’ve lived here for almost 2 years now. So when I see something like this, it makes me very sad for the city that I live in. Apparently, there was some sort of state trooper training exercise happening at...

4chan Founder Christopher “moot” Poole Just Got Hired By Google

The last time I talked about Christopher Poole (aka “moot”) was over a year ago when he did a farewell stream for the users of 4chan. Of course, he’s the guy who created the place, so I can’t really begrudge him that. Still, the last...

Asians in the UK Now Turning to “Marriage Investigators” to Scout Future Spouses

Having a somewhat traditional Pakistani mother meant that a few things would be expected from me. I would be a doctor, I would live with her until I got married, and I would marry via an arranged marriage. None of those things worked out in my mother’s...
