    He's deliberately courting white, straight male hate. That's his whole shtick. That he's gay they feel gives them a "get out of hate free" card to rip on women, people of color and progressives in general. Like Stacy Dash. She makes white people feel good about being racist and she gets paid to do it.

    I've not heard of him till you all mentioned him. Shows how much I pay attention to social media.

    Sounds like a dick though.

    I don't hate him. I disagree with him on everything, and I don't like a lot of the things he does, but I don't care enough to dislike him.

    The should be a poll on this topic, I bet a majority will vote dislike him. Also, twitter banning him isn't doing any shit, it just makes him even more popular by making him a
    martyr for 'free speech'.

    Oh, man. The amount of misogynistic bullshit I hear from cis gay guys who think that their gayness gives them an excuse to call women disgusting... I know what you're saying, even if I don't know much about the guy.

    Disclaimer: sorry, cis gay men if I offended you. Calm down. Was talking about the minority of you. I know most of you are cool.

    From what I've heard, this man just sounds like Onision. Tries to be edgy and inflammatory just for attention.

    The only useful things he's done is be a walking billboard about the horrors of poor hair dye selection and get banned from Twitter.

    I don't take most of what he says at face value. He's a necessary troll imho but does entertain me I like him.

    But I have heard him described as "an uncle Tom fag". !!!!

    I like him a lot. I don't agree with a lot of the stuff he says, especially about supporting Trump, but at the very least he made me understand why people support Trump and why he does have a large appeal, even if I don't agree with it. The only time he's genuinely pissed me off is when he talked about trans people on the Rubin Report. The arguments he made there were uncharacteristically weak and misinformed by his standards.

    I mainly like him for his TV appearances debating 'professional feminists' and SJWs. I used to buy into most of the feminist and social justice stuff, but after looking into the issues a lot more and seeing debunkings of the pay gap and campus rape culture and other issues, I absolutely agree with him on the state of political correctness and regressive feminism that is becoming increasingly popular in America, and even though he is a provocateur and makes no pretenses about it (he's also so unsettlingly charming that I genuinely wouldn't be surprised if he was diagnosed with psychopathy at some point), in these debates he comes with logic and facts to back up his views, which his opponents aren't as good at or simply don't bother to do. I really respect his style of debating and how he manages to have a bit of fun with it while still having really good arguments.

    As for his Twitter ban, I don't think he deserved it. He didn't explicitly incite harassment on Leslie Jones, although he clearly underestimated and misunderstood her situation, and I think the main reason he was banned was because Twitter wanted to find any reason to kick him after all the feminists he trolled.

    I am amused by his Twitter ban tbh. I think it just goes to show how intolerant of free speech Twitter is. I mean, it is a website's right to censor its users however it wants, but the fact its went down in popularity so much since then should warn Twitter of its future if it continues down this destructive path... Wow, that was dramatic. XD Seriously though, FB is better off than Twitter.

    I agree. I never saw the point of or liked Twitter, but his ban and the whole Trust And Safety Council is creepily Orwellian at this point.

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but just wanted to present a couple more observations on Milo:

    Milo is essentially a phony opportunistic conservative. If a Ted Cruz-ian conservative force were to actually come into power, Milo would probably jump ship to the left since his so-called "conservatism" is entirely self-serving. Hard-line conservatives don't like Milo, so I suppose that's a plus, but the more I read what he writes, the more I don't believe a word of it.
