I mean if you want to talk about why people find it so hard to pin anything on his points, it’s because they’re deliberately set up in a stream of consciousness where he’ll repeatedly use buzz phrases like “i’m not necessarily saying that but there’s a lot of data out there that says etc”.
There’s one specific video here where he’s talking about birth control, and spinning out of a question about women’s liberation being a weakening factor within society that his points flow out like this:
• Birth control: is it stopping women being happy because they’re fighting becoming mothers? I can’t say for sure but a study about men’s jaws suggested this was the case and when women are hormonal they prefer pictures of alpha males.
He moves on from this quickly. There is no conclusion, he just leaves it hanging, because you can much more easily disprove conclusions.
• Now he’s on to ‘I mean look at the 60s. Women were able to start behaving like men for the first time in that they could withdraw from reproduction if they wanted to. And the 60s had a boom in pornography.’
Doesn’t like the two directly but implies it extremely heavily. Gives him an out later however to refute what he did or didn’t say and can write it off as a misunderstanding of his tone.
• Now he’s talking about masturbation being a pale comparison to the actual ‘achievement’ of having sex, and porn being duplicitous in that.
He doesn’t have any sort of link to women’s equality here he just sort soft of waffles.
• Then he’s onto the idea that women in the workplace – not the inherent foibles of capitalism, say – is the reason, ‘perhaps, i don’t know maybe’ for a devaluing of the workforce.
Nothing but maybes and probablys. What can be argued with?
He drones on and on about a subject implying negative associations with women while alluding to non-backed-up ideas that he only half suggests are his opinion. That’s why he can walk away from any of this while reinforcing misogyny extremely heavily.
I’ve bothered typing all this out because it surprises me that you can’t see the trick.
