UPDATE: Tumblr returns to working order as of May 5th, not linked for propriety; see archive.
At approximately 7:30 PM Eastern time yesterday, @BroTeamPill Tweeted out links to several web pages potentially associated with Arthur Chu, white-knight extraordinaire and notorious GamerGate detractor. These sites were found by locating different accounts registered to the same email. Among the sites were an embarrassingly juvenile LiveJournal, a Flickr account from 2006, and, most interestingly, an active Tumblr account bearing his signature name “AbstractArthur” The Flickr primarily consisted of photos from Mr. Chu’s college years and clearly belonged to him.
Among a number of photos of his friends rendered in now-antiquated Demotivational Poster format, a slew of pictures he took for his old student paper The Phoenix at an extracurricular event, and an exceedingly poor attempt at webcomicking, were at least a few rape jokes, statutory rape jokes, and candid photographs of a female friend sleeping. This is already terribly compromising to Arthur’s image, since he tries to portray himself as a “defender of women” and opponent of “rape culture.”
The Tumblr, on the other hand, resembled the private hoard of a sex fanatic: someone obsessed with shemale transgenders and being seen as a “sissy-boy” whom men would screw. Updated as recently as last Sunday, it was a glimpse into a truly disturbed mind. It appeared, in fact, to be a hoax. The blatant ArthurEffect label and sheer horror of the content seemed like something a prankster would slap together to make it look like Chu was a bizarre deviant.
“SERVE A SHEMALE MISTRESS TODAY….. XXXX”
As word of the compromising Flickr photos and uploads sluiced through the veins of Twitter, word reached the ears of their owner. Almost immediately, the Flickr account was closed, presumably with the intent of limiting the damage. But the Internet never forgets, and archives of the content had already been made.
What is worth noting, though, is that the Tumblr was also deleted, at the same time. This implies that a panicked Chu swept in to try and delete all evidence of his dirty laundry and preserve his image as a Feminist Crusader, not realizing that he had only confirmed the truth of the matter by tying the accounts together in death. A vague tweet alluding to social media troubles came quickly after:
The content of Chu’s Tumblr is obscene by any standard, and even a seasoned veteran of perversion may be shocked by it’s content. For your elucidation, however, it has been archived here, but I bid you fair warning that its material is not safe for work, home, or mind.
We cannot say whether Arthur Chu’s allies in the Social Justice movement are aware of his transgressions, and merely overlook them, or if they would summarily execute him for thoughtcrimes were they to be informed. While anyone is entitled to whatever kink they can get off to, the sheer hypocrisy evinced by the clearly rape-minded personality which maintained these accounts, someone excited to be violated by “she-men,” not only clashes with Chu’s espoused politics, but goes a long way toward explaining the particulars of his affinity for his compatriots who he chooses to align himself with.
Who IS Arthur Chu?
Mr. Chu has yet to respond to these allegations, but the content of the Flickr account speaks for itself: no one but its subject would have access to so many personal photos. Information regarding Chu’s college friends, undisclosed here, further corroborates these facts. In light of the mass deletion of both accounts, the only conclusion must be that Chu is leading a double life: tireless feminist crusader by day, shamefully submissive sex-fiend by night.
He asked the question himself in his autobiographical documentary, but these findings show that the question is not truly answered: who is Arthur Chu?
