In an argument (usually a political debate), a concern troll is someone who is on one side of the discussion, but pretends to be a supporter of the other side with "concerns". The idea behind this is that your opponents will take your arguments more seriously if they think you're an ally.
A concern troll will pretend to care (about the opponent's health, well being, political activism, lifestyle, choices, etc.) while in reality, he or she only wants to cause self doubt and fear. A concern troll tries to undermine that which he or she pretends to support.
Examples of concern trolling: "I am only worried about your health, shouldn't you lose some weight?"; "I am worried about you, are you sure you are gay?"; "I have no problem with your ideas about politics, but don't you think you are being too extreme and you should tone it down?".
Concern trolls are everywhere: family members, politicians, public figures, celebrities, random posters in web forums. We have all encountered one. This is the place where we expose their tactics.
Sorry ladies, but you’re not really pretty “just the way you are”. Don’t believe all those motivational lies about how “God made you that way” - because God doesn’t exist, and you’re really just that ugly.
What you need to do is focus more on your appearance. Look better. Because what comes out of your mouth doesn’t really impress me. The least you could do is at least be an aesthetically pleasing addition to my kitchen.
I’m tired of hearing all your nonsense about being okay just the way you are. Because obesity isn’t healthy. It’s a public disservice. It costs us all more money when you feed your fat face and don’t exercise. Then, you get fat, no one wants to have sex with you, and the cycle repeats itself until you’re forklifted out of your home and onto a talk show stage.
I like having sex with attractive women. In fact, most men do. Some men like ugly women as a fetish, but if it’s your goal to be a fetish fuck, try S&M - it’s easier. All you need is rope. But I digress… my point is really simple: You’re supposed to be more beautiful than you are. You’re supposed to improve. Improvement is a natural part of life.
For instance, when I was in the second grade, I was learning basic math. Then, over the next few years, I learned more advanced math. The same goes for a woman’s body: You may start out just simple and basic, but you can be and do so much more. That’s why you advance. If you don’t, you’re a failure.
You can call me a chauvinistic asshole if you like, but my penis knows better. If I can’t get hard looking at you, Houston, we have a problem.
A concern troll primer! However, this one deviates from the standard concern trolling tactic in that he is worried about you, but he makes it clear that it’s all about him and his dick.
A couple of highlights in ignorance (I should, perhaps, turn this into a category in and by itself: highlights in ignorance): when he talks about improvement for women, it’s all about looking pretty. When he talks about improvement for himself, it’s about expanding his intellectual capabilities (learning math).
Also, his lack of sexual experience manifests when he claims S&M is about “ropes”. Heh, you fool. If that’s all you know, then you are not getting as much as you claim.
At my local village hall the other day, a little girl won a box of chocolates in a raffle.
Courteously, she passed them round, but I declined, telling her in a jokey tone: ‘I won’t thanks — I don’t want to get fat!’
Although my response was light-hearted, from the reaction of the child’s mother you’d have thought I’d been at best impolite and at worst indecent.
‘How dare you put pressure on my daughter by suggesting she’ll get fat if she eats chocolate!’ the woman raged.
I make no apology for my comment: after all, there is a direct and unequivocal correlation between eating chocolate and putting on weight.
Yet bit by bit the word ‘fat’ has been expunged from our modern lexicon. It is now the single ‘F’ word we’re afraid to utter.
We are so consumed by the politically correct notion that we must not force our children into believing they should be thin, we have over-looked the fact that many of them are getting perilously close to obese instead.
More concern trolling at the link. If you can withstand it.
