Meet Eleanor.

(kind of reminds me of Chris)

Eleanor or BootlegGirl is a trans-Twitter user notable for sperging out about trans issues and being linked to many in the Rat King. Pretty much your typical Rat King tweeter, reeing at everything and being a generally unpleasant person. They've been posted about on this site before, some about Twitter and some about their behavior on RPG.net, where they were a frequent poster.

Unsurprisingly, she uses Patreon ( https://www.patreon.com/Bootleg ) and gets $33 a month from 6 people. She claims that she wants "to deliver my transgender, SJW, overanalytic thoughts - and a lot of folks have wanted to hear them." The goal of this Patreon is to deliver two posts a week on bootleggirl.com. (Un)fortunately, the site's been down for a while.

This isn't the only form of crowdfunding Eleanor uses. Contribute to her sci-fi transgender novel:

Her car was stolen and the police didn't care apparently: https://medium.com/@BootlegGirl/wou...seriously-as-illegal-downloading-5964416cd352 (http://archive.md/LrEA5)
But you can make it all better by donating to this YouCaring campaign: https://www.youcaring.com/eleanor-lockhart-613398 (http://archive.md/P9QFn)

Apparently owes $4000 to the IRS: https://twitter.com/BootlegGirl/status/858498496407666690 (http://archive.md/yLtb2)
David "never learned how to wipe his ass" Gallant tries to comfort her:


Eleanor has a PhD in Communications from Texas A&M and even taught there for some time. Why someone who considers themself trans would pursue a doctorate in communications at one of the more conservative campuses in the US paying out of state tutition, I have no idea. Is currently in debt from pursuing the doctorate. Eleanor's currently a (tenure-track) professor at Rowan University.

Dr. Eleanor Amaranth Lockhart is a scholar of communication, gender and popular culture.
She teaches courses in public speaking and rhetorical criticism. She has published scholarly
work in Argumentation & Advocacy, the journal of the American Forensic Association. Her
dissertation dealt with the performance of hegemonic masculinity in nerd/geek culture.



To be fair, the rest of the reviews are mildly positive.

Claims that the Matrix is a film about transgenderism and MovieBlob even quotes her stuff on that.
https://medium.com/@BootlegGirl/a-c...good-by-bob-chipman-aka-moviebob-caf124ffe8cb (http://archive.md/sfVOI)

Took first name from the video game, The Last of Us (Ellie). Took middle name from the metal band Nightwish's song "Amaranth".

Claims to have been doxed before by an RPG site.

Has registered two domains. My guess is that he was trying to anticipate the title of the new Star Wars movie and bought the domain names for what he thought would be the title. His guesses were wrong and the site names remain unused: thefallofthejedi.com / theendofthejedi.com

They're also a game developer. Really, they just got a copy of RPGMaker and tried to make a game. See for yourself.

@Jaimas, here's a game for you: https://www.patreon.com/posts/corrected-builds-5782153 (http://archive.md/4bNkt)



Thanks to @CasualSeppuku for finding some links that I missed.


Cram it in me, baby!
Thanks, I had completely forgotten about making a thread for this cow. Let me compile my own information from my previous posts.

At 208 thousand tweets in just over three years, that works out to about 170 tweets a day, every day.

Despite having all of one publication to his name, Luke landed his sweet job even before defending. (In other news, Freddie deBoer on suicide watch.) His PhD dissertation is on Gamergate. No, really.

Nerd/Geek Masculinity: Technocracy, Rationality, and Gender in Nerd Culture's Countermasculine Hegemony

"Nerd and geek culture have become subjects of increasing public concern in recent years, with growing visibility and power for technical professions and increasing relevance of video games, science fiction, and fantasy in popular culture. As a subculture, nerd/geek culture tends to be described in terms of the experiences of men and boys who are unpopular because of their niche interests or lack of social skills. This dissertation proposes the concept of nerd/geek masculinity to understand discourses of hegemonic masculinity in nerd/geek culture. Examining three case studies, the novel Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, the neoreactionary political ideology, and the #GamerGate controversy, the dissertation suggests that nerd/geek masculinity responds to a perceived emasculation of men who identify as nerds or geeks by constructing the interests, skills, and behaviors of nerd/geek culture as inherently male traits. In this way, nerd/geek masculinity turns the very traits nerds and geeks are often mocked for into evidence of manhood – as the cost of excluding women and queer people from nerd and geek culture."

Like all troons, Luke is e-beggar despite making $70k a year as a tenure-track professor.

Here's her Patreon:

Apparently he was living out of his car at some point, when all of his worldly possessions were stolen:

One reason for him being broke is that she’s in a BDSM (as the sub) relationship with her new beau Cyrus, a fellow troon (twitter handle chrysopoetics), who is apparently disabled and doesn't work. This is the reason why he harps on about fake geek girls. Because he is one. He switched his gender because he wants to be a submissive woman getting fucked by a man.

Given how kinkshaming is one of his biggest triggers, I'm going to have to go with Luke being another autogynephile of the Rat King.

In addition to what has already been linked, Luke is a massive fanboy of both the Matrix (which is totally a metaphor for coming out as trans), and Nightwish, which is where he got the middle name Amaranth.


Cram it in me, baby!
