That's hilarious, Blake! Man o man, that would be a rough world to live in though!
In reply to Raoul:
As far as BE stories reflecting a hatred of women, I've always believed that that's part of the equation, but I don't know if "hatred" is quite the right word. It's much to strong to describe the BE genre, which is mostly written by people who are on the whole probably just a bunch of harmless computer nerds (not your typical gansta/hate-crime individuals). I do think many of the MC stories out there display quite a bit of contempt for humans in general, but... I think _fear_ of women is the underlying theme of many BE stories, especially stories where the women become sluts or bimbos. It's symbolizing a shift in power (which is a concept that you have hit upon a few times in previous posts).
(I think, deep down, many "smarter" and "not so good-looking" guys realize at some point that entering into a relationship with a female will ultimately be a lot of trouble, that women in general are frustrating and difficult to deal with. I think these men fear that women will not respect them because, well, they're men and all they want is sex. So these men allow themselves to enter into shallow, voyeuristic lifestyles. Porn, strip clubs, etc... so they can have the act of love, at their own convenience, without the problems and pain that comes with real love.)
Drawing a parralel to BE stories, it can be seen that many men basically feel that the "solution" to the woman delimma is to just have a woman who embodies this ideality of fulfilling the act of love, without needing to put real love into the equation. The very act of BE might symbolize this.
(And this is not even considering the fact that women as well have just as many psychological problems and fears as men do... I remember Dave Sim putting it this way in Cerebus: (paraphrasing) "All women want to be raped by handsome doctors." I think it's one of the most profound statements I've ever heard. Whether it's true or not, I may never know...)
But I suppose I've gotten off on a wild tangeant... back to what we were talking about. Raoul, you say that BE stories can be based off of two recurring themes:
(a) the woman in question is being violated or hurt in some way
(b) the laws of reality are sufficiently different that women value radically different things than they do in reality
Whether or not what you are saying is true doesn't correlate well to the original topic of discussion. I think you are turning it more into a "psychological" theme to BE stories, while what I was talking about was more of a "physical setting" theme.
I was trying to say that BE stories, on the whole, work well within a universe similar to what you see on South Park or The Simpsons. Reality takes a back seat to situation comedy. The characters' very existence is a parody on humans and human emotions. On a subconscious level, it can even be said that the characters are aware that they are in a BE story, and so take everything they do or say with a grain of salt because they know it isn't real.
That's why in South Park when you see Kenny die or something like that, the next episode he's back alive like nothing happened. In the same way, we know that no matter how big the woman gets in the story, she'll be back to normal the next time we see her.
However, this physical setting that borders on the ridiculous, doesn't exist in some author's universes. Specifically I am talking about writers such as Al or Plato Voltaire (there are others, but I'm mentioning these two because their stories are such good examples of what I am trying to explain). In these writers' story universes, there exists a kind of "permanent irony" where all the characters seem to _believe_ that the world they live in actually exists. That when the story ends, they will still have huge breasts, they'll still be nimphomaniacs, the world as they know it will see them and respect them for who and what they are.
It's, to me, a great literary achievement to convey this kind of "surreality" or whatever you want to call it. It's the sign of a good writer at work. But at the same time, what I'm trying to say is that, when I think about it, it's not really the _best_ universe to tell a BE story in. It's a neat trick, which makes for a very interesting read five or six times, but on the seventh or eigth or maybe just the second time, eventually the reader sits back and says to himself, "I finally get it, and it's not all that exciting." Sure it's cleverly ironic, but does that make it the best example of the BE genre? The more I think about it, the less I am sure of it. I certainly don't see the need for a few 100 of such stories, in any case...
(But as those authors will probably tell you, none of the would make a difference. They write for their own enjoyment, as should all writers. And I'm not trying to "change the world". I'm not out to point fingers or criticize any more than normal. I'm just trying to find the words to describe a phenomenon that's puzzled and interested me for well over two years.)
