"Your a sick person with a serious problem. I am not a worthless person because I'm a cheerleader. I deserve a lot more respect then that. I would like to see you try to do what us cheerleaders do during games,practices, and or competitions. We work hard and we work together. On the other hand we have to deal with people like you who act like they are superior to us and think that we are nothing. But when you look in the mirror marty tell yourself that you are worthless and have nothing better to do then act like and ass. that all i have to say to you. bye"
"I'm writing to tell you that I am praying for you. I hope that someone in your life will show you how wonderful my Jesus is. -For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee."
"I think your opinions very uneducated -cheerleading is a very respectible sport-i am on an all-star squad and i am practicing long and hard for my sport. You are right in that no one can prove that God really exists (only through bible and prayer), but i think you should be afraid because of some of the things you are saying-they not only offend me, but they offend God as well."
"I read some of your columns, one in particular that interested me, you wrote about attending a children's beauty pageant. I have 3 nieces that participate in them, I personally do not agree with their mother making them do that but I am not their mother, even though I thought that the way you choose to go about your column was tasteless and tacky, it was not that that bothered me, in your quest to uncover the world of child pageants you did nothing but celebrate your own ignorance, you had a few good points in your column but that was over shadowed by your own lack of class. I was offended by your disrespect. what if I wrote an article and referred to Alaskans as being full of sheltered,ignorant, young minded white boys, that sir is what you have proven yourself to be in my eyes. I live in the inner city and I could not imagine a young white boy coming to my neighborhood talking the way you talked, I bet if you tried it you would think twice before you spoke like that again?!!!? dont get me wrong your opinion is not what bothered me it was your disrespectful,offensive, and degrading remarks that piss me off. while I was reading it I cant lie I was thinking 'I cant believe this kids nerve. what the hell does he know about anything and he's all the way out in the boondocks of Alaska, what the hell does he know' I'm not writing this to piss you off or offend you but I was telling you for future reference you have a good writing style and you never know who could be on the net reading your column you could miss an opportunity of a life time offending people like that."
"You know what? I think YOU'RE F*ing abhorrent and should be gang raped by crazed baboons. Wait, no I don't. My mind could never have fathomed saying something like that to a certain type of people. And I think it is really sad that yours does. Teenage plasticity? Are you saying that because I cheerlead as a great way to meet people and stay in shape, that I am guilty of throwing insecure teens into depression? The only idiocy infesting high schools across the Nation are closed-minded people like you. I read one review of your book that said, 'Marty Beckerman shows how much greater the world might be if we'd simply get rid of all the worthless people.' I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT! Besides OUTRAGING people, that just proves my point. Let's see, someone could hang out with a happy, friendly, outgoing cheerleader for a day, or hang out with someone, cynical, stereotypical, and depressive like you. Just ask them to take their F*ing pick and let's see what half of America would say."
"so who the fuck are you, some jew dork from alaska, to call yourself the voice of my, or any generation? you can't write for shit and you dont know dick. i bet you havent even done acid. keep an eye out when you come to nyc next week. i might show up just to piss in your dead mouth P.S. christ youre such a little BITCH! honestly it makes me furious"
"I don't see how you can say the world would be a better place if we got rid of all the worthless people! And who are you to say that cheerleaders are the piss on America's tolets? If you ask me people like you who have nothing better to do than say that our nations high schools are are infested with plain old idiocy then my friend marty you are the validictoran of this years graduating class!!! And who are to talk about cheerleading? Have you ever been a cheerleader? Have you ever seen a real cheerleading competion? Most likely NO. So until you have don't talk shit about some thing you know nothing about!!!!! Oh yeah I've been a cheerleader for 6 years and loved every minute of it!! And NEVER been or will be the piss on America's tolets!!"
"You are just a social rejet who can't stand to see others happy with their lives so who have to the 'witty' one with all this shit about be your own person. Oh and doing drugs does not make you cool it makes you fucking retarded!! And the fact that you trash everybody else what category do you fall under? Being a cheerleader has been the best thing in my life, I have had the chances that you will never have do to the fact that you can't stand to be wrong!!!!!! this is a generation that wants to be like everyone else!! SO DEAL WITH IT AND GET OVER YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
"To the fact that you clearly don't like the fact to chippendales, what do you think of women strippers? Most likely you would be one of the first people in the door! So don't knock down what women enjoy. Things on this earth are not here pig headed men like you!!"
"Dear My Favorite Sellout: Good day. I'm writing out of concern for your desperate search for a publisher. Your website has posted information regarding your recent success in this endeavor by allowing, MTV 'books' to publish your most recent book. As a devoted reader of your column, and a fan of your Death to All Cheerleaders publication, I'm outraged at the fact that you allowed MTV to publish your work. Real World, MTV 'News', TRL, and Carson Daly, are four reasons why you shouldn't lower yourself to their disgusting standards. Now that they're starting to focus their attention on 'edge' happenings they've started pulishing 'alternative books', and even opened an MTV2 channel, to capture pop-indie peoples attention. Tis sad you've sold out, tis sad you are no longer my idol god, tis sad I no longer dream about you at night, and find mysterious deposits on the pillow. As my mom calls them. Your welcome for my input. Good day."
"After reading you itmes on Cheerleading (by chance of landing on your website) It sounds like to me that you are just one of those poeple who 'never were' or 'never got to..' or couldn't get a date with.. etc. I thought journalists, by nature, were SUPPOSED to be fact givers, forthcoming and all that..it seems like to me that you are just hiding your low self esteem, and 'never coulda's' behind some &*^%$$#@ story about which you know NOTHING!!!!! Its too bad you are not a good fact finder. It is also too bad that you have such bitterness in you. Life is way too short. Furthur its too bad that most people who read your stuff probably just laugh, stop 1/2 way through, or never return to your site. If you have a gift for writing/want to express your opinion/present the 'other side'--- it seems to me you need to take some lessons in true journalism/media reporting---cause listening/reading the same ole (*&^%*&#@ gets really old-and looking through your site--you say the same ole crap, you just use different topics to do it! Death to all journalist who aren't really journalists and think they are--I like that title better!"
"As a Mom of a Christian Cheerleader and the Coach of A Christian Cheerleading team, I have to say your article was a shock! Yes Christian Cheerleading is different and leadership abilities are stronger because of Jesus Christ. Regardless of what activity you participate in, what choices you make in life, what school you attend or the career path you take Jesus Christ will never leave your side. You are obviously a very bright young man and quite gifted to say the least. Your perspective and 'craze' for putting down cheerleaders is unreal, not to mention targeting Christian Cheerleaders. When it all comes down to it, if you turn your back on God he will do the same to you on judgment day. I would hate to know, Marty that I did not respond to you. It is obvious you realize and know there is a Jesus Christ and that he died on the cross for your sins. It is obvious that you know he rose on the third day. You know he took the stripes on his back for you, the nailed scarred hands for you and it's obvious that you know he will return some day to take his children home. Marty, I pray that you will make the right choice to be one of those children. You see Jesus chose you along time ago when he did all of this for you and I. I just ask you to seriously and deeply consider praying and asking Jesus to forgive you of your sins, that you will find Christian Friends to hang out with, and that you will use your talents to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You see, we all make choices and choices result in consequences. Please Marty, choose Jesus Christ as your Personal Saviour. I promise that if you do this and make an effort to make changes in your life, you will never be the same. Jesus, I lift Marty up to you tonight. He is a young man with awesome talents and abilities. I just ask you Jesus to soften his heart, mind and soul to hear your voice and know Jesus that you are speaking to him. I pray that his Mother and Father, Brother's, Sister's, Aunt's, Uncle's and any other Family and Friends come to know and serve you through Marty. I know Jesus that he is an awesome young man, and while I work daily with our Cheerleaders and our Youth Group that these young people will lift Marty up to you daily as well. Jesus I love you and I thank you for allowing me the opportunity to share your love through this email with Marty. Thank you for opening his eyes, heart and mind to hear your voice. In Jesus Name, Amen. Marty I truly wish you the best and please know that daily our Cheerleading Team will be praying for you. We will make a difference and you have provided clear direction as to how these young cheerleaders need to pray. May God Bless You! Cheerfully Serving Him"
"RE: YOUR OVERZEALOUS NARCISSM Clearly, you have capatalized on the self-congratulatory brouhaha that inevitably befalls someone of the under-25 crowd who manages to manipulate the populace into believing his self-serving, misogynistic ramblings (which, by the way, are mediocre at best) merely because they are infused with the 'shocking' sexual behaviour of a sampling of their respective generation. Respectfully, I don't see how a self-important, obviously bitter and psychologically stunted 'man' of your stature can be lauded as a knowledgeable muckraker of the 'Gen Y' generation when clearly, you hail from a one-horse town (i.e., Anchorage) which can hardly serve as a microcosm of the continental United States, let alone representative of the quintessential American city. No...I think it is obvious--to all of your peers who know their asses from their genitalia--that your so-called writings are merely a manifestation of your homoerotic, female-hating, sexually repressed psyche. You have somehow managed to dupe those who are otherwise respected (and, not surpisingly, those who are not) into thinking you're some kind of representative of the youth in this country. In case you're now being manipulated into believing this bullshit, let me assure you that you're nothing but a lark--a plunge--and that the banality of your sub-par scribblings will surface eventually (however tardily). Sincerely, a true, honest-to-god rep of Gen-Y-ers who, unlike you, is privy to the actual goings-on of people under 24)"
"God, you're such a fucking moron... you ARE a hypocrite for railing against MTV culture while publishing with MTV. You should especially shut your face about feminism. Your shallow understanding of feminism is a scapegoat for your frustrations against women. Have you ever thought that its not THEM, but YOU? If you can't expound on a concept intelligently, keep your mouth shut. You're only kidding yourself if you think that you're a modern intellectual. The person that called you a 'self-centered blowhard' had it right on the money."
"Your level of immaturity boggles my mind. Some day when you grow up and stop being such an egocentric geek you'll find that you can't ever take back the things you've written and published with so much confidence. Because some day you WILL see how grossly pathetic and overdone your crappy 'novellas' and 'commentaries' were. You'll end up middle aged (not the fresh 20 year old *gasp*), and boring, desperately rewriting the same drivel over and over, and the few critics who give you such weak praise, will tire of you. You lost all credibility, and journalistic integrity in the eyes of many, many people. (I read a ton of negative comments about your book, too. Trust me, they weren't hard to find.) Oh, yes - something else you lost - your only chance of ever being with a woman who is in her right mind, because any woman would be insane to let you touch her. If you don't know some of the big words I just wrote, try getting out a dictionary. I lost $8.95. You are just a plain loser. I win."
"It's been a few years since I've followed what you've been doing... I wonder if you have any soul left in it. You're writing used to be at least somewhat clever. I fear you've become nothing more than a sellout. You do it, but you know it's miserable."
"Your book was bar none the worst literary experience of my life. Without any intelligent discussion... You obviously put in a very small amount of thought into this book in general. In fact, the only reason that I can think of for you putting statistics in at all was to give the book some sort of legitimacy which is laughable to anyone over the age of fourteen or without a hard on. Obviously feminism is failing when a twenty year old man can publish a book almost exclusively about ninth grade girls being sodomized and being otherwise taken advantage of in disgusting proportions. (I find this immensely creepy and troubling and I'm sure I'm not the only one.) What is wrong with you? you don't seem to be able to relate to women in a way they would even begin to comprehend. Do you know ANY real women at all? Or did you grow up in a fallout shelter with women in bunny ears and silver nipple tassels who nursed you until you were nineteen? I mean REALLY. I don't care how many people claim to support what you do, your book was the single worst piece of trash I've ever read in my life. There is such a lack of intelligence or effort in your writing that I can't help but think that your only inspiration for writing it was to supply images for your own demented fantasies. Instead of encouraging people to buy your book to learn more about 'Generation Y' you should have just handed it out at 50c peep shows to other perverts. I honestly think that you need help. You are a very sick person. I love books, and I always thought that book burning was the stuff of tyrannic rulers and cruel dictatorships. This being the case, as soon as I finish this e-mail your book is going directly into the dumpster outside of my apartment building. I will then take a shower, because frankly, I feel dirty after reading your book. Try not to picture me rubbing soap over my breasts or penetrating my anus with the shower head. I know it might be a stretch."
"You are a complete self-hating idiot. You should use your 'talents' for something I think you would prove to have more aptitude for such as writing yard sale ads for your local paper."
"soon you are going to die. sorry."
"you are really dumb. just because you have no life of ur own AND ur a gay geek dosent mean that u need to hate on cheerleaders. if YOU think that there is NO work involved.... lets see you perform a round off backhandsspring twist with eurchenko at the end.... i mean come on! you said there was no work involved.... lets see it!"
"hello marty i pray the lord will use you more... i pray the lord will give us your frienship in the ministry.with prayers by pastor richard."
"You are an ugly sexist self righteous asshole. Go die yourself you fucking idiot."
"go to hell you fat anti american fuck....you along with all your followers have forgotten about sept 11th....i will pray to god that only the worst things happen to you in your lifetime...if you don't like the way our country is being run get the fuck out and join a terrorist organization so we can justifiably end your life and bring a smile to the faces of all true americans....you belong with those scumbag pieces of shit FUCK YOU AND LEAVE MY COUNTRY"
"YOU LOOK JEWISH . THAT'S YOUR PROBLEM, YOU ARE WASTED PERIOD"
"your not an American you are a shit head zionist Beckeerman did your bastared relatives in germany have to buy that last name> you are a low life, go back to israel shit head your stinking nose looks like an uncercumsised cock kyou are a left wing red father fucker"
"I read your entire book, I read it all, just so I can make a full argument on how I find it dispicable. Though your language is pitiful and your statistics are nonsensical. Also as I see on your website you're holding a shot glass, I have no clue what substance it holds, though it still sends the message that great oh wise Marty drinks. How is this supposed to help people realize that the 'Y generation' is horrible. This comment is running terribly long, and I doubt you'll even read it, or reply. Though I would like my message to reach you, I have no clue how you would defend yourself,but this book tells me you're a chauvinistic male that is naive and shouldn't be listened to."
"you sick fuck i just finished reading your generation slut book, and i have to say, i was disgusted at some of the things YOU said...your obsession with huge tits and sex is repulsive and its a shame that anyone would call you a ray of light. You cant spew shit about sex without love being bad when you're so goddamned into it. if its so bad, why do you keep doing it? im just glad not all guys are like you. you think that acting like an asshole with a big tit fetish and no respect for people is going to make people respect you and take you seriously? i dont give three shits if youre monogomous, if youre still thinking about balloon tits, youre still disgusting. i think your stuff would have a way better impact if you actually pretended to be a decent guy instead of an asshole. if every man on the face of the planet liked balloon tits then id be a freaking reject. im sorry you have such a low opinion of your gender, but there are guys out there who actually have taste and appreciate a nice shape and not vulgarity like you do. I actually know plenty of men who are disgusted at big tits also, men seeing women as a blow up doll is NOT attraction. I am attracted to men, but i dont see them as freaking toys. most guys with taste dont like these types of boobs, andits only for vulgarity's sake that some men are attracted to this. i think its obvious i dont have a problem with the male gender just because i dont like rednecks who like evertything bigger in texas? lol wtf you dont find the female body attractive. you find it vulgar and think of it only in terms of sex. With how vulgar you talk it seems youd be into plastic tits and lipo. Yeah okay im willing to bet most guys would go after a girl with my body type, smnall boobs and all than they would after a girl with say, your girlfriends body type Vulgar rednecks included sorry, just because you have disgusting taste and grew up in a small town where peop[le had nothing better to do but get drunk and fuck random people doesnt mean everyone is the same way. Saying all men like huge vulgar tits is like saying all girls like big bulging muscles. A lot of women actually find that repulsive"
"I will have you know that I have been involved with cheerleading for almost 20 years, and I have never been 'loose', or a 'bimbo' for that matter. In fact, I had eyes only for my husband, and I maintained at least a 3.5 GPA all through high school. I don't think I would have my picture made in a shirt that says 'I like to get wasted and f---'(see, my morals won't even let me spell that word!), and then publicly put other people's morals in question. Maybe you just couln't ever get one of those 'loose' cheerleaders to ---- you."
"Your pseudo-intellectual drivel will only fool the dumbest of liberals. Whether your conversion is based on getting tail, or whether it's based on some other self-serving end, it's not fooling me. I know all about John Galt. Go out and do something good for people, rather than hopping ideologies and dripping with inflammatory speech. "
"WTF. Seriously, dude. I'm familiar with A Modest Proposal, I get the concept of satire, but if you were attempting to transpose that into your own, er, idiom, you failed. It's actually impossible for me to tell if you're approaching this from a Swiftian position or if you really do hate fat people, and I'm pretty good at picking up on that."
"Are you fucking serious?.Fuck You.!! Mutherfucker you cut my skin I bleed the same blood as you. You should really stop being a bigot fuck, quit separating people. WE ARE ALL THE SAME. FUck you for being Retarded. I hope you have a horrible and painful death, I hope all your worst nightmares come true. You are not worthy to be a man. Piece of shit worthless energy."
"maybe you just follow the crowd vs. thinking for yourself... consider the possibility that you are a douche!"
"Hey big tit lover! I'm a big, fat whore with big fat tits. If you want to make an appointment with me, you qualify for the douchebag special. I mean, you're not really such a sexist, insecure idiot, right? Also, as an added bonus, I'll stick my unlubed fist up your asshole FREE OF CHARGE."
