    Well she started it. She has no problem voicing ill informed, and generally nasty, opinions about everything and everyone so really should she be surprised when everything and everyone have better informed but equally nasty opinions about her.

    Yeah but I think this is actually a good point. She is an extremist hatemonger but responding to her in equal amounts of abuse and hate lower people to her level. I personally think when challenging her extremist hate that we shouldnt be responding with extremist hate.

    Apparently a "normal" woman is a busty blonde sexy page 3 model who wears make-up, short skirts and red lipsticks and has pouty lips.  Who knew. 👀😏

    The best response to the likes of her is no response. An educated response is not changing her mind no matter what & responding in kind is giving them attention.

    The old “don’t feed the troll” rings true here! Obviously Gemma and co like to invoke a response and sometimes ignoring is impossible, but I really think just talking about them as little as possible is really the key to getting them to effectively.. well fcuk off.

    Completely disagree on this. She needs to be challenged not ignored.

    To what end? Do you think challenging her views will change her mind or just drive her more into lunacy?

    And when I say ignored, I mean by general public Gardaí intervention where necessary etc is important, but I really don’t see any point to engaging with the likes of her, because it’s more drama for their followers.

    LOOK EVERYONE AN IGNORANT PERSON TRYING TO CHANGE ME

    How would anyone challenge her? Shes never done an interview or had a conversation with anyone who disagrees with her idiotic views. Shes a coward. A chickensh1t.

    In before anyone claims otherwise, but she's a vile racist woman

    If nobody challenges her then her and her followers will take that as agreement.


  • Registered Users, Subscribers Posts: 1,915 ✭✭✭ Raichu

    To be fair does she even take criticism as valid anyway? The other problem she won’t speak to anyone who could properly put them in their place and an argument between herself and you or I for example leads to nothing.

    If she’s out acting the bollocks, engaging her solves nothing. She won’t start to change her mind, she’s a lost cause.

    oh absolutely she is a lost cause but other people seeing what she posts might see the reactions to her and stop going down her rabbit hole.

    Definitely I don’t think her actions should be ignored and should be blasted back to outer space - I just think Gemma should be ignored.

    I guess what I’m saying is a thread like this is grand, but I wouldn’t entertain her directly in any fashion, be that commenting on one of her videos or speaking to her in real life.

    Though, if I ran into her, I can’t say I wouldn’t give her a dressing down, if she invited it.

    And I don’t mean in a sexy way.

    O'Doherty speaks to an anti-society/authority demographic that'll find her whether we give her oxygen or not. Those people want to find rabbit holes and will discover all those corners antithetical to somewhere like Boards. As to O'Doherty, her views are abhorrent and misanthropic, but she also strikes as potentially mentally ill. I've often wondered if the tragic death of her husband caused a breakdown she has never recovered from.

    It doesn't take much effort to discredit whatever crazy notions she tends to come out with.
    And when you consider how tiny her following is, which has not grown at all over the last few years, I think that shows that you're better off not completely ignoring it and instead addressing what she comes out with to help put off any new potential followers.

    What happened her husband?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,341 ✭✭✭ LollipopJimmy


    What happened her husband?

    Passed away from an illness a few years ago.


  • Registered Users Posts: 46,950 ✭✭✭✭ tayto lover

    That’s sad.
    I wonder if it coincided with her antics starting?
    Maybe she really does need psychiatric help.

    Motor Neuron disease I believe, absolutely awful.

    Completely disagree on this. She needs to be challenged not ignored.

    Criticism only confirms to her that THEY are everywhere and that THEY really are out to get her. In any case she can't handle criticism, at all, she has never been able for it. The merit in criticism is for society to affirm that it considers her views repugnant, but I think it's best to try and ignore her entirely because:
    1) criticism only reinforces to her that she's under seige
    2) the overwhelming majority of her views are so whacked that the kind of person who would be influenced by them is likely a lost cause already

    She believes that the state/government is conspiring against the population, which she believes consists of indoctrinated lemmings, but has no problem bringing court cases against the state, as if the judiciary and legal system exists in a vacuum which this all-encompassing conspiracy somehow fails to touch. I realise that court cases are just another opportunity for her to promote her vitriol, but it shows how disjointed her thinking and beliefs must be. There is absolutely no use reasoning with someone like her.

    I think denying her the oxygen of publicity is the most effective way of dealing with her. Criticism just invites her into a coversation that she doesn't respect and wants to monopolise.

    Think that is ultimately what tipped her over the edge.

    Watching her husband deteriorate in front of her eyes, over a number of years, probably led to her losing her mind.

    Sure is, which makes her behaviors all the more weird and nasty....

    Do you think this explains her vileness?

    Her thought out and intentional and deliberate vileness? I mean, it takes a hell of a lot of effort to behave the way she does...

    I'm not sure he actually deteriorated. I think he died soon after diagnosis

    I wasn't ameliorating her behaviour, just stating a fact.

    She's just a nasty piece of work.

    I think SHE thinks there is method to her madness. Unfortunately so do some scumbag morons.

    Think she enjoys being the Pied Piper to the rat(lickers)
