Pop Culture Detective

Jonathan McIntosh (born 1991) is an American producer, writer, artist, and cultural critic. He is the creator of the Pop Culture Detective Agency video series examining intersections of politics, masculinity, and entertainment. He was also a producer and co-writer on the Tropes vs. Women in Video Games YouTube (post-2013) video series.

Why He's Rotten

  1. Highly against the idea of video games being "Fun" even though that's the primary purpose of games.
  2. Much like Sarkeesian, McIntosh cherry-picks each moment which he deems sexist or racist, and make a fuss out of them.
  3. Extremely anti-GamerGate.
    • One of the most notable examples is when he tweeted about how the GG mascot Vivian James's purple and green color scheme is based on a "rape joke" (the Piccolo Dick). One would have thought that McIntosh, as a feminist, would have known the color scheme of suffragettes. (In case you don't know, Vivian's shirt is actually a jab at online censorship and a nod to Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry.
  4. Highly against violent video games such as DOOM (2016) or Dishonored 2 while at E3 and spent the major part of it complaining about sexism and misoginy.
  5. Some of the reasons behind his critiques are extremely illogical and absurd. For example, he once claimed that video games are tools for the "patriarchal masculinity" because both games and patriarchy are centered around control.
  6. Very hypocritical; he said he couldn't find happiness in a person's death, even if it was Osama Bin Laden yet when Cristopher Hitchens died he literally said "good riddance".
  7. Once accused Willy Wonka from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory of racism.
    • He has also accused superheroes like Batman of being a "fascist mascot". On Salon, no less.
  8. Some say he's the puppet master of Feminist Frequency and Anita Sarkeesian.
  9. Like his puppet, McIntosh constantly bashes pop-culture subjects which he has little knowledge of.
  10. Painted the entire U.S. army as torturers.
  11. He has also supported the terrorists who attacked French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.


  1. He's the subject of the term #FullMcIntosh, which was coined by Sargon of Akkad after McInotosh retweeted the article Why GamerGate Already Lost posted by Badass Digest/Birth.Movies.Death author Devin Faraci. The term is a reference to "You Just Went Full Retard". Since then, GG supporters have used the term to mock McIntosh and sometimes Social Justice Warriors in general for their farfetched claims.
  2. Brianna Wu once criticized McIntosh for his disdain to opinions different to his, blaming it on his "male privilege". Although it's certain that McIntosh comes from a wealthy family (see gallery below), it is even more ironic that Wu comes from a rich family herself, making her ”privileged”.

Apparently his Pop Culture Detective has over 712,000 subscribers, but considering he comes from a wealthy family plus his kickstarter, I'm betting a large chunk of that is bought and paid for.

To be fair, JMI (Johnathan McIntosh), does have good points about how some movies, especially romantic ones glorified atrocities. For example, Abduction As Romance criticises how Hollywood praised domestic abuse, Stalking for Love condemns stalking, and Sexual Assault of Men Played for Laughs (both parts 1 and 2) make good points about sexual assaults toward men.

The above remark about JMI's best videos shows that he can make well-researched and elaborate essays. By the way, should we add JMI's anti-crime essays as 'redeeming qualities'?
