Oh god, I feel like his name needs to go in the urban dictionary.

To pull a Paul Bellen. He bellen’d It.

He is an absolute right testicle.

That Twitter thread is hilarious.

At least we know he’ll be kept out of the gene pool, given he has no idea into which slot he should put his tab, so to speak.

He’s so oblivious it’s hilarious. I love that he’s getting a hard time from men and women.

Oh my god. This is a man who literally cannot stand to be wrong. Imagine dealing with him in real life.

Holy cow. He just cannot consider the possibility that he might actually be wrong.

That was so frustrating to read.

I note he has most recently dragged aristotle into his argument.

There has to be a name for his condition.

Wonder how the University of California feel about all the free publicity?

#37 Mmmcheese

It is just so spectacularly perfect in his complete lack of awareness of what a total nincompoop he is making of himself. It is so totally ridiculous!

What's the male equivalent for ASW? Or SJW or whatever rubbish term the menz use for us for wasting their precious time? I feel there's a whole world of gendered language that needs to be unleashed. I have no words.

I like this one the most:


Have you ever considered, a hobby, for example?

OMG some of those comments are hilarious. But good ole Paul is getting his fifteen days of fame on the internet.

#41 Paddlepop

Spoilsport Paul has made his tweets protected. I can't see them anymore. I don't have a Twitter account. If I had a Twitter account would I be able to read them, or is it only his followers now that can see them?

That was just unbelievable. Except I completely believe it.
9 periods a year, eh? "juicy uterine lining"? Oh my goodness.

Edited to add this absolutely glorious quote "Mensesplaining!"

Where can I sign up for 9 periods of 35mls a year?

Bumping this thread to report that Paul is still going. He has updated his name to now include the title "Dr" and wrote a freaking essay about vagina vs vulva. The most recent replies are 8 hours ago and include the line "I am mainly arguing against those who want to illegitimize the generic meaning of 'vagina'".

My word, he is a persistent douche! Imagine if he put his energies into worthwhile things!
