Spellcheck? He spelled wut wrong on purpose, that's the only misspelled word in that comment.
But they're really just rare in general. Odds are unless you're shopping for a cheap car or manual deliberately you're going to find an automatic. In America everything is built around ease, and driving an automatic is easier than driving a manual so they're significantly more popular.
It'd be like if they made a video game controller that was really fucking tough to use, like you had to press 3 buttons at a time to perform 1 action, over 1 for 1, and there was a group of people like, "Only baddies play with automatic controllers, fucking scrubs."

Peddles, dude. Peddle means to sell or distribute. Pedal is the thing you put your foot on to go in a car. No shit he spelled wut wrong on purpose, people have been spelling wut like that for as long as funnyjunk has existed, I have in fact caught on by now.
I'm also aware manuals are rare in the US, I've lived here my whole life. I was making an exaggerated statement for effect. My observation has been that people who don't know how to drive manuals are worse drivers in general. Of course there are exceptions either way, but there seems to be something about having to control another aspect of the driving that keeps people more focused and more aware of their vehicle's dynamics I think.
So your analogy still kind of makes sense then. Yes, they don't need to use the harder controller and many people would probably prefer the easier controller, but the people who do take the time to master the harder controller would probably be better players regardless of which controller they were using.
By the way, I own two vehicles, one's a manual, one's an automatic. So I'm not saying driving an automatic immediately makes you a terrible driver either.

Spellcheck won't help if you use a word that is meant for something else in the wrong context. If I said, "I'm going to phone your asshole" you wouldn't say, "Lol you spelled fuck wrong"
Yes, the player using the harder controller would be better in general, but while playing they would be limited. It would take time and energy to master the harder controller. Assuming it gave you an advantage once mastered, and you don't fuck up ever, like driving a manual, since expert drivers can shift gears better than an automatic can, it would still only be ideal for high level competitive players, as it would be more enjoyable for casual players to use the easier controller.
There's nothing wrong with either style of gameplay they're just different people and automatic drivers shouldn't be bashed because some people think they're hardcore because they drive a manual.

1. Thank you, Mr. Literal. I wasn't actually telling him to use spellcheck. It was hyperbole.
2. Manual is not limiting, it gives you more control. So to stick with your analogy, imagine that the harder controller allows you to aim down the sights, while the easier one doesn't. That's more accurate.
3. It's not about being a better racer, it's about being safer. You have to learn a manual, then you learn the dynamics of the vehicle better and respect the task more and take it more seriously. Thus you fuck up less.
4. Never said I was hardcore, you're just using a stupid ass straw man that the internet has grown super fond of.
5. This argument is silly.
