Probably because schools are so homophobic. Seems like all schools, and including colleges are hate laboratories. I mean there has always been fighting at school, and some kind of caste system, that’s just part of growing up. Nowadays, though, it’s gotten really on the edge.
I will tell you one thing that has gotten way worse is homophobia*. In the 1970′s, no one cared. The assumption was all guys were straight until proven otherwise and no one really worried about this stuff. The gays were mostly closeted and there was not a lot of fagging around by straight guys.
Let me tell you, men had a lot more behavioral freedom in those days because standards of masculinity were so relaxed. This was the era of David Bowie, the New York Dolls, Aerosmith, Mick Jagger, T Rex, Iggy Pop, Mott the Hoople and all sorts of seriously androgynous mostly straight rockstars. It was hip to be a straight androgyne. We do not have that freedom at all anymore, and people are vastly more homophobic now than they were then.
Let us put it this way. If I walk, talk, move, sit, stand, dress, or have mannerisms like I did in the 1970′s, I would be being called a faggot all day long nowadays. Back then, I didn’t hear it much, and most people just assumed I was straight even on first meeting me. Guys would meet me as total strangers and right away start talking about women. It was sort of like, “Well I see you like to fuck chicks, dude. Me too. Let’s you and me go get some chicks, stud.”
Because we have so much less space now, I have started acting a lot more conspicuously masculine. Maybe even macho, I have no idea. And even then I hear that I must be gay now and again. Because, you know, I sit with my legs crossed, so I must be a faggot. I do not mind acting this way, as there is part of me that is like that anyway so I can just plug into that part of myself, but it’s not like I am free to be myself.
If you look at male porn stars from the 1970′s, they were much more androgynous than they are now. Nowadays male porn starts are covered with tattoos, jacked up and hypermasculine looking. They look like they want to kill you. I cannot remember the last time I saw a 70′s style male porn star in a recent porn film.
All this gay rights stuff is a smokescreen. Most straight people are wildly homophobic. Straight men are a disaster, especially Black and Hispanic men who are basically psychotic on the subject. And most straight women are outrageously homophobic too, but only in a strange way. They spend a Hell of a lot of time accusing various straight men around them of being gay!
The gays came out of the closet all right, but I do not think people got any saner as a result. It seems like Gay Lib just made people even nuttier on this subject. I think we were much saner about male homosexuality in the 1970′s than we are now.
We have really gone downhill. Sex roles have totally regressed and we are back into stupid rigid traditional crap.
I would like to close by pointing out that the vast majority of who are gay baited or victims of anti-gay harassment or even gay-bashing are actually straight men. I figure 85% of men who are gay-bashed, gay baited or gay bullied are actually straight. Gay men probably only make up maybe 15% of that total.
I do not think the Gay Lobby has been helpful for these straight men at all. In fact, I think they have just made things even worse for them. Gay Lib was a great idea, but I don’t think many people got liberated.
*When I refer to homophobia, I mean male homosexuality. I do not think anyone cares about female homosexuality. I mean how many women get told, “Well obviously you are a lez. Hey, you act like a dyke.” I never hear anyone saying that to any woman. Women can act any way they want to.
And I really do hate Amanda Marcotte. I always wondered why the Manosphere hated her so much, and now I get it. She is a stereotypical feminist lunatic crazy bitch on steroids. Here is one of her latest insipid tirades.
Honestly I dislike all Identity Politics types.
According to Marcotte, gender essentialism is where you think there are inherent biological differences between men and women. Gender essentialism is sexism. In that case, I am absolutely a sexist 100%, and I am very proud to be one. Not only that, but I am certain I will be a proud sexist for the rest of my life.
Marcotte says that if you believe that men are more aggressive or violent then women, then you are a sexist. I certainly believe that men are more aggressive and violent then women, and not only that, but it is inborn in men and women to be this way.
Marcotte says if you believe that men are less nurturing then women, you are a sexist. Of course men are far less nurturing than women, and this is inborn.
Much of the post is about whether men have better critical thinking skills than women. I think I will pass on that one, but my only comment would be that although women can be excellent at critical thinking, they do not like to do the sort of critical thinking that involves the abstract word of ideas and concepts. However, I believe that women are excellent at critical thinking when it comes to relationships, children, the sexes and other things that they value. Its not that they cannot do that pure intellectual type thinking, but it’s more that they think it is boring.
That is why the female pure intellectual is not so common as the male pure intellectual. I have met some very smart women, some with IQ’s of 140+. However, many of them could not be described as pure intellectuals. They are just as smart as men with the same IQ, but these women found that intellectual world to be a snooze-fest. They were simply not interested in things like that.
Their interests were more along the lines of people, the sexes, the emotions, sexuality, human personality, relationships and whatnot. This is the sort of thing women really get off on, and when it comes to intuitive thinking along those lines, no one does it better than a woman. So it’s not that one gender is inferior and the other is superior, it is more that their brains are different and their intelligences are more geared to certain areas as opposed to others. It’s a matter of interests, not ability.
Marcotte says if you think men can handle rough and tumble criticism and women tend to shy away from such things, then you are a sexist. But this is probably true. Women can be catty as Hell, but they dislike raw verbal aggression. They probably think it is ugly, scary or ridiculous, and often it is.
Let us ask my Mother, the smartest woman in the world about this. I told her that they are many people on line who absolutely love to fight with other people.
They get into wild fights with other posters and commenters that go on forever. In many cases, they insult and threaten each other, try to get each other fired from jobs, threaten to turn each other into authorities for some sort of violation, try to get each other kicked off websites of ISP’s, dig up personal dirt on each other and air it on the web, set up whole webpages just to smear other people, post under a never-ending array of fake names and handles (morphing), etc. I told her that a lot of them seem to actually enjoy this sort of ugliness, and they often spend hours a day attacking each other. Some of them were high-ranking people with good jobs such as university professors.
She nodded her head like she had heard it a million times.
“They’re mostly men, right?” She asked.
“Yes! They are almost all men!”
“Of course,” she said, shrugging her shoulders.
So going by that, it seems men love to fight just for the sake of fighting, and women do not. Who can take criticism better? All I know is that my girlfriends keep complaining that I have insulted them even when I didn’t intend to. They get horribly offended and angry, call me names, threaten me in various ways, try to hit me, break down into tears, refuse to talk to me for days on end. A lot of them seem to find fault in all sorts of petty things. So going by that, I would say that women don’t take criticism very well. In fact, they tend to break down.
Marcotte says that if you agree with or make statements like this, you are a misogynist:
Listen, honey. I go to strip clubs every week. I love women — especially when they’re covered in oil.
I do love women, especially when they are covered in oil. And I used to love to go to strip clubs. In that case, I am very proud to be a misogynist.
Marcotte says that if you believe that gendered violence in men (that is, men beating, raping, and killing women) is inborn, then you are a sexist. I do believe this. I do not believe that men are born to be violent towards women. Men are biologically more violent period, to both sexes. And yes, they are biologically more prone to rape. This sort of gendered violence will always be with us. You can reduce it, but it will never go away.
Bottom line is according to this women and countless other feminist nuts, I am a sexist and a misogynist. I agree with her, and I am very proud to be these things.

Homer Simpson writes:
If anything, it’s the women whom are the true gender enforcers, for what they find sexy in men is among the things that keep men behaving as they are. If you step out of line, then you won’t get any, or even get into the friend zone.
I was never really into hardcore masculinity. I was always a soft-spoken, rather androgynous type guy in the good sense of androgyny. After many years of that, I finally figured out that it doesn’t work. I got tired of getting called gay and bi and gay and having bi guys hitting on me. Incredibly enough, I even got gay-bashed a few times! I lost jobs when queer bosses fired me for not sucking their dicks. I got tired of my very own girlfriends accusing me of being gay or bi or neverendingly questioning me about whether I was gay or bi.
I got tired of girlfriends mocking me, laughing in my face, humiliating me, openly cuckolding me and trying to wear the pants. I got tired of being a pussy-whipped idiot.
I always had a deep masculine core, but it was sort of hidden. But anyone with half a brain could always see it pretty fast.
I decided to get a lot more into that masculine core. I actually enjoyed it, because that had always been an important part of my self, even if it wasn’t always out front.
I also got a lot more dominant with my girlfriends in bed and also out of bed. I started cussing out my girlfriends when they misbehaved, and even threatening them sometimes when they attacked my Achilles Heels with “attacks that I never allow anyone to make.”
I started making a lot more decisions. We are going to use this car rental agency. We are going to stay in this motel. We are going to eat at this restaurant. Instead of getting angry, my girlfriends looked relieved.
I figured out that most if not all women and girls want to be dominated in bed and even out of bed to some extent. My girlfriends started acting openly submissive in and even out of bed. Some started calling me Daddy and wanting to play Daddy – teenage daughter sexual age play games with me. They started asking me to play out rape fantasies, which in a couple of cases involved me “breaking into the house,” accosting them and having sex with them “against their will.” After I “raped” them, they would tell me that the sex was incredible.
The sex got a lot wilder and way more more perverted. My girlfriends would get these little girl voices with scared eyes in bed as we wrapped up in each other to go to sleep.
I started fighting with girlfriends a lot more, and the fights got extremely wild and even crazy. My girlfriends fought me harder and dirtier than they ever had. Some started physically assaulting me for the first time, something I had to figure out how to deal with.
My relationships also got a lot more intense and lasted a lot longer. Women fell more deeply and wildly in love with me than they ever had before. Girlfriends started fighting over me and actually threatening each other. I would meet a new woman, tell her I was dating two other women, and immediately she would give me her phone number. Girlfriends started spending a lot of money on me and showering me with gifts. They became insanely jealous of other women and demanded that I be with them only. They acted like guard dogs around me, defending me against the depredations of other women.
For the first time in a while, women started asking me to marry them. This grew more common. There also a lot of requests to move in with women. Women hopped on airplanes to come see me from very long distances. They bought plane tickets for me to some see them thousands of miles away.
Girlfriend A would be over at my house and Girlfriend B would call on the phone. Instead of getting furious Woman A would pick it up, laugh and say, “It’s your wife,” and hand the phone to me. I would be lying in bed Woman A at 11 PM when Woman C would call me on the phone. I would get out of bed and take the call outdoors. When C asked me what I was doing, I would tell her that Woman A was visiting me now and I was in bed with A when C called. Woman C would get visibly excited and start talking dirty to me. I would go back to bed, and A would ask who it was. I would tell her it was Woman C and instead of getting angry, she would start laughing.
I started reading Game blogs and realized that these idiots who I had castigated before were actually right. They were still narcissistic misogynistic shits, but they had actually managed to figure out women.
I started realizing that there was something to this masculinity stuff after all. I got a much more Gender Realist and biological idea of gender, which was endlessly confirmed to me by women in my life.
I realized that all the leftwingers and feminists who had castigated masculinity and played a role in me downplaying it while playing the role of a “modern feminist man” were simply dead wrong, so I trashed the Left and feminist view of sex and gender.
I started realizing that most of us are slaves to Mother Nature and that Mother Nature always bats last.
And once I figured that out for real, as you can see above, my life got a whole lot better.
Men, I do not care how leftwing or feminist you are, you ignore and downplay masculinity at your own risk.
I am warning you.
I could easily attract young women as a young man. It was not a problem. I could even do so up until my early 40′s. After age 47, it is barely possible. I get the strong impression that most young women really want nothing to do with me, at least in a sexual sense. And of course it makes sense, at this point, I am not only Dad but just about Grandpa.
I really do not understand why everyone is so flipped out by middle aged men chasing after legal teenage girls and young women. Everyone acts like this is a real problem, a social evil, and that any man of this age can easily get a young woman. I tell these people that I couldn’t get one if I tried, and they always look at me like I am speaking Greek. But of course it is true if you think about it. The upper age range for a female would be a man about 25 years older than she is. Beyond that, you heading towards Gramps territory. And it is true, at my age, I can still get a woman aged ~27-29 at the lower end. Not that it’s easy, but it’s possible, and I have dated a few recently. Young women from other cultures like Arab or NE Asian women are your best bets for this sort of thing as they are used to liking older men.
When I deal with young women out in public, I start off by assuming they are not interested and then go from there. Sure, I look at them sometimes, but that’s like looking at a waterfall or a forest. There is nothing wrong with admiring the beauty of God’s natural creations, and a young woman is truly a thing of beauty as great as a Redwood tree. Once you assume they want nothing to do with you, you can more or less converse with and get along with them. If you try to steer the conversation in any sort of sexual way though, it’s going to head south pretty quickly.
I just did a new interview with Robert Stark. I think you will like it. It goes over a lot of pretty important subjects. The sound quality should be much better on this one.

- Roissy’s Stupid PUA Site and how unregulated sexuality mirrors right wing economics
I do not mind this Vox Day fellow so much (he is much better than the repugnant Roissy or even the less scary but still frightening Roosh), and although he doesn’t believe it, I am actually a reader of his site. And I even take notes. I am not so much of a Game Enemy as I am part of the Loyal Opposition.
He accuses me of not understanding Game, but I understand it very well.
My critique remains the same.
Obviously, according to Game Theory, 20% of men are going to monopolize most of the best women. These women will be content to share an Alpha’s harem. These 20% are the Alphas. They are attractive to most of the women most of the time.
60% of men are the Betas. Despite the despicable hatred in the PUAsphere for these salt of the Earth, sincamisas (shirtess ones), Ordinary Joe, guy next door types, Betas are average, ordinary men. They are attractive to some of the women some of the time, which is simply normal. In the past, due to religion and institutionalized marriage, almost all Betas married and had children. Now many are not. Nevertheless, most of the Beta types around me have a girlfriend or wife.
Omegas are the ~15% of men who are attractive to hardly any of the women almost all the time. The castaways and by-catch. Nevertheless, quite a few eventually marry or get a girlfriend.
According to almost all PUA sites, the only worthwhile men at all are the men who fall into the top 20% of all men. Since according the new system, the 20-60-20 rule is pretty much the way things go, the men who monopolize the best women and who are attractive to most of the women most of the time are the top 20% of men. These are the only worthwhile men in the whole world, PUA’s tell us. The other 80% are ridiculed and showered with spitting, frothing contempt on all PUA sites, but particular hatred is reserved for the Ordinary Man, the Regular Guy, the Beta.
So in a rigged system where only 20% of men can win and 80% must lose, the PUAsphere says that the only valuable men are the 20% winners, while the 80% losers (who must lose, now have you, no matter how hard they try, due to the rules of the game), are contemptible garbage virtually unworthy of life. Roissy is one of the worst offenders here. He constantly encourages his fawning street gang of sociopaths to pour contempt of the despicable Betas and anything resembling Beta behavior, whatever that is.
If Alphas are the men who rank 1-20 on the 1-100 scale, the low Alphas would be men who rank 13-20. High Betas would be men who rank 20-40 on the scale. According to Roissy’s commenters, even low Alphas and High Betas are disgusting failures to be mocked and jeered. I guess the only men who are worthwhile in society are the top 13% of all men. The other 87% are all untermenschen deserving of death.
All over this insane PUAsphere, we are told over and over that the only worthwhile women are the “top-notch” women, apparently those women who rank 9-10 on the scale of 1-10. Even 7′s and 8′s are hideous dogs that no man would give a second glance to. Acquiring any woman who is less than a model type means failure.
Realistically, 10% of women are in each category – 10% are 1′s, 10% are 2′s, 10% are 3′s, 10% are 10′s, 10% are 9′s, 10% are 8′s. Get it? On the 1-10 scale, only 10% of women fall into each category.
The only worthwhile women are the top 20% of hotties though, say PUA’s, and all the rest of them are ugly muglies. Any man who has a girlfriend or wife, or maybe even a date, who is less than a 9 is a complete loser, unworthy of even saying hello to.
All of this toxic nonsense reminds of me of rightwing economics, which honestly says that the only worthwhile members of society are the rich and the upper middle class (the top 20% wage earners) and all of the rest of us are filth, useless eaters, not even human beings, expendable.
Noting the comparison with rightwing economics, it is fascinating that almost all PUA’s are political reactionaries, although Roosh may be a more progressive guy.
This never made sense to me because all down through history, all the playboys have been liberal, progressive people. When I was growing up it was the same way. Hugh Hefner, Bob Guccione and Larry Flynt were all liberal, progressive men and so were their magazines. Most of the players I knew growing up were leftwing hipsters of one sort or another with a joint, a surfboard or a pair of skis in one hand and an endlessly rotating series of hot babes in the other. They were my models, and this is how I lived my life as a young man as a surf bum – ski bum – pot dealer.
When I was growing up, conservatives were dorks, idiots, neckbeards, Omegas. They were “squares” – starched buttoned up clothes, voted for Nixon, refused to smoke weed, looked like they hadn’t shit in a month and of course could barely get laid, or if they could, they only got with equally square, uptight, lame rightwing chicks who most of us disparaged as “the square girls.”
Now it’s all turned around. The reactionaries are the wild playboys (Huh?). Liberals and hipsters are soft, wimpy feminist Betas.
So the whole universe got turned upside down in my lifetime.
Going back to economic analogy, in an unhinged, unregulated economy, 20% of men will be upper middle class (Alphas) and 20% will be lower class (Omegas). 60% will be some species of middle class (Betas). No matter how hard anyone tries, the outcome will always be like this. 20% will inevitably win, and 80% will inevitably lose.
Saying that only the upper middle class are really human, and the rest of us are failures is rightwing ruling class politics, but lo and behold, what economics does the PUAsphere push? This very same rightwing ruling class economics, now called Libertarianism, in other words, Economic Game.
And just as I figured, Vox Day, who I previously thought was a decent guy (but I was suspicious as hardly any PUA’s are decent human beings) has authored a book on Austrian Economics. Austrian Economics is the craziest of all the crazy Libertarian free market fundamentalist philosophies of economics. The Austrians are the most Libertarian of them all. Austrian Economics trends into Minarchism (Let’s Go Back and Live in the Middle Ages Economics), Anarchocapitalism (Somalia Uber Alles Economics) and other winner take all, loser die in the gutter, screw you, let em eat cake economic systems.
There is nothing special about economic systems like this. Read any book about 1700′s Europe. The rich were partying up while the cities were full of horrific slums, starving working people, and the worst of misery. Peasant and worker rebellions were regular occurrences.
So it turns out Vox Day is a serious asshole after all (the Austrians are on my list of “human beings I refuse to even speak to). He’s proposing winner take all, let em eat cake sexual economics, and he’s promoting (Who woulda thunk it?) winner take all, let em eat cake monetary economics.
Aren’t there any sites we can talk about this Game stuff while avoiding all these foul reactionaries?
You connecting the dots here? PUA’s say that only the 20% of us men who are winners, sexually or economically, have any value. The rest of us, the 80% who will lose no matter how hard we try because the game is rigged as all contests are towards those finishing towards first place, those finishing in the middle and those finishing at end, are worthless worms, failures, losers, men to be stomped into the ground like bugs on sight.
If they only advocated this it would be bad enough. But the PUAshphere is delusional. The PUAsphere more or less says all men can Alphas. All you need to do is read Roissy and buy all of Roosh’s books and videos (and I do mean all of them, don’t leave out even one of the $139.95 package) and you will get Game. Getting Game means becoming an Alpha. The unspoken (or maybe even explicit) argument here is that all men can be Alphas if only they just try (and don’t forget to write Roosh that $150 check!).
In other words, all men can be in the top 20% of all of the men. All men can monopolize all of the best women. All men can be the top 20% of attractive men who get all the hot chicks. Are you laughing yet? It’s like Lake Wobegon, where everyone is above average!
This post attempts to address this major complaint of mine, but honestly fails in that Vox Day doesn’t even answer my question. Many of the commenters get my point in one way or another though, and there are some superb comments on that thread. I hate to say it but this is one of the most intelligent and insightful threads I have read on a PUA site in a while.
I still don’t buy it. I can go on expat forums and find plenty of people who had no issues in West Africa and enjoy living there. I trust people who actually LIVE there *long-term* and have to actually deal with normal people on a regular basis than someone dealing with scammers or someone flying there short-term to collect money.
Tell you what. I will be completely honest. I read a story on the monger forums about a White guy who went to a village in Nigeria and had the time of his life with 10-15 rotating women all fucking him the whole time he was there. They were very sweet, feminine and kind. I guess they wanted marriage. He experienced no crime, problems or anything like that. Understand that rural life in parts of Nigeria has not yet been destroyed.
And the North was always a safe place to go, except now there is a war on. But before the war was on, the North was a very safe place, almost no crime, no corruption. It’s the polar opposite of the Christian and animist South which is pretty much morally nuked.
I also went to some cool pickup forums – really monger forums (these were really cool places just full of regular guys, often single, roaming around the world trying to get laid). I believe they are still around if anyone wants a cool PUA site that’s not ruined by the recent Manosphere PUA types. There was virtually no Roissy/Roosh dickery/assholery going on, and why should there be anyway? We are all just guys trying to get laid, come on. Why fight?
There was a section on Nigeria, and I went there out of curiosity. There were some Black men in the US who were very street-smart fellows (draw whatever conclusions that you will), and they could handle themselves very well in dangerous US Black ghetto situations and had been doing so for many years. They admitted that Nigeria was a highly dangerous and chaotic place but said that if you were Black and street-smart, tough, and knew what you were doing, it was doable. But even these men admitted that from the time you stepped out of the airport, people will try to rip you off and scam you right and left.
Most if not all recommended that no White men go to Nigeria, but that Black men could visit a lot there easier than White men. These Black guys had figured out the games, culture and rhythm of the streets of Nigeria, and they were able to travel there regularly with minimal problems. But it was not for the naive or people who were not hard and tough-minded. These Black guys were really into Black women, and they said there were many beautiful Black women in Nigeria ripe for the picking.
I would say that if you are very tough and street smart US Black man who wants an adventure, you might be able to do Nigeria with minimal problems. But I would not recommend that any White man go there. For one thing, Nigerian Blacks are unbelievably racist against White people. Remember Band on the Run?
Robert Stark is a real piece of work. He just got his ass handed to him by Roissy.
As if I care if Roissy, Tool of all Tools, hands anyone’s ass to anyone.
Roissy’s site is truly horrifying, and the man is a monster. He’s the biggest asshole in the known universe. Most of his commenters are orbiting him hoping to bask in the narcissistic glow he gives off. They are also trying to be an even bigger asshole than Roissy, and that’s probably not even possible. I mean not physically possible. I mean there is probably a law of physics that prevents any man from being a bigger dick than Roissy.
That Roissy is in his early 40′s (?) is particularly pathetic. No man should still be this angry and especially this mean that far into life.
By age 40, almost all humans have been kicked in the ass about a million times that they finally figured out that their shit stinks after all. Most normal levels of narcissism tend to fade around age 40.
By that I mean that it is normally for a teenage boy to be narcissistic. Many to most young men in their 20′s, especially the more successful ones, are insufferably arrogant assholes. In serious cases, the dickheadedness extends into the 30′s. Certainly there are a lot of extremely huge headed men from age 30-33 or so. I figure from age 33-40, this sort of thing slows down somewhat.
By age 40, there aren’t a whole lot of showboats anymore. Everyone’s been humbled one too many times. The only remaining narcissists after age 40 are the real hardcores, the true, pure pathological narcissists.
Roissy’s still got an ego bigger than the planet Jupiter, and he’s heading towards age 45. Massive red light. Roissy is severe narcissist. In fact, I suspect that Roissy, after reading him for years now, has Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Don’t fret now. The Net is full of NPD’s. You can’t blog unless you are fairly narcissistic already anyway.
That site simply bristles with sheer meanness. The commenters are the same way. Would you actually go to a party full of cumdrunk assholes like that? Would you dare set foot in a bar full of hotheaded young fools like that? I wouldn’t. I don’t cotton much to assholes.
Roissy’s lesson from the very start has been penultimate narcissism.
Be Like Me.
Follow Roissy, Your Leader.
Imitate The Roissy God.
Bow At His Feet.
Read His Roissy-Biblical Tomes.
Breathe Deep In The Overwhelming Essence Of Sheer Roissyness.
Since Roissy is an asshole, his main lesson since he started has been teaching young men to be all the dick you can be. Be an asshole. Be like Roissy. So you have a Roissy column, a belching retch of ugliness, sadism and assholery, and then you have the comments following, where all the commenters try to see if they out-dick even Roissy. Hey! It’s an asshole contest already!
Roissy unfortunately has started to butt his nasty little head into the comments, splattering little drops of cruelty disguised as wisdom here or there. He has to pop up in the comments threads to show you he’s still alive and to frighten you. You read one of his articles, and you are aghast. “Please tell me this guy died after he wrote this!,” you think. “Please don’t tell me I have to share the planet with this Tool!”
Like those zombies in The Night of the Living Dead that can hardly be killed, he pops up like an evil little jack in the box in the comments. Each time we wince at his bile, our heart falls because humanity sinks a little bit lower with every scribble of Roissy’s.
This is a very disheartening website.
I wonder just how many older men hang out on these PUA sites? Seems like it’s mostly young testosterone addicts looking for a score from what I can tell. I would think 95% of older guys would be turned off sheer viciousness of the men on that site. As a man gets older, he’s supposed to purge himself of the angry young man bile. An angry older man is particularly sad case. He’s also a heart attack waiting to happen.
The premise of Roissy’s entire site is completely stupid. Granted, the His Dickness has granted us some bits of genius in the Alpha – Beta – Omega hierarchy, but mostly this was just telling everyone what we already knew anyway but hadn’t formulated properly. But credit where it’s due, and many geniuses (yes, Roissy is a genius) are utterly horrific human beings. Read their Wikipedia entries if you don’t believe me.
But Roissy even gets the Alpha – Beta game all messed up.
Look. This is the way it goes. Probably in any unglued society, the Alphas cannot possibly make up more than 15-20% of the males.
Let us suppose you had a society full of Roissy addicts who had all somehow managed to reach the pinnacle of Alphaness. It would not make sense. Because no society can be all Alpha Male (at least I do not think so). In Arab and Middle Eastern, Russian, Iberian, Latin American and Filipino society, sure, you have a huge % of men playing the “Alpha” game. They look and act like Alphas (especially in Arab and Middle Eastern culture).
But even here, the same 80-20 rule must apply. Suppose a hot woman, instead of being approached by one high-value (Alpha) man a day, is now being approached by five or six high-value Alpha men a day? What’s she going to do? Bang all the studs and whore it up? You kidding? The 80-20 rule, hard and fast, will continue to apply.
In a society where all of the men act like Alpha Males, females will simply pick off the top ~20%, the most Alpha of the Alphas and most Sigma of the Sigmas, relegate the rest of the regular Alphas to Beta, Delta or Gamma and toss the least Alpha of the Alphas (who are nevertheless very much Alpha men) to the Omega bin.
See how this works? In a culture where all the guys act like Omegas (some NE Asian cultures seem like this) the females will simply cream off the top 20%, the highest and most “Alpha” of the Omega Crew, and cock carousel them. The nerdiest of the nerds, the Omegas of Omegas, will get tossed back as by-catch. The vast majority of the Omegas, exhibiting normal levels of Omeganess, will be placed in the Betasphere.
The sheer insanity of Roissy’s site though, and really all of the lunatic PUAsphere (I include Roosh here too), is that the site is based on the insane premise that any man can be an Alpha/Sigma. All he has to do is try.
Nonsense! The pool of high-value men in any society will always be relegated to the top ~20% of men, the Alphas and Sigmas. There are probably no feral societies where this will not be true. It’s almost as good as the Law of Gravity.
Only 20% of us are going to win.
Only 20% of us can win.
Roissy’s site is horrifyingly cruel. They have set up a world where only 20% can win, and fully 80% most lose. These figures will never change no matter how hard anyone plays. How base can you get?
Maybe 20% of men are Alphas/Sigmas, and that number probably cannot increase no matter what. Probably ~15%? of men are tossed to the sexual round file, the sorrowful Omegas. There will probably always be ~15% Omegas no matter how hard anyone tries. And in between, 2/3 of all men, the vast majority of us living our lives of quiet desperation, jonesing for a vicarious thrill fix anywhere we can madly grab one, are doomed, nay, destined, to live the lives of the Beta Type.
60-70% of men in any society will have to fall into the Beta, Delta or Gamma categories. In any society where women roam free and undomesticated, this is how the chips will fall. The Betasphere, the Betas, Deltas and Gammas, are simply average men.
Regular men, everyday men, the guy next door, your Dad, your uncle, your brother, Gramps, your boss, your best friend from high school. Most of the males we straight men have loved most in our cut-short lives are simply ordinary Joes, fully undeserving of Roissy’s acidic spittle.
And what in God’s name is wrong with being an ordinary man among men? Precisely nothing.
Yet no personage is more reviled on Roissy’s moronic site, or Roosh’s, or any of the others, than this lowly Beta, our fathers and our sons, our brothers and our cousins, all of the men that make up our typical quotidian lives we tap out before we die – every one of these great ordinary men are treated with utter contempt on PUA sites, as if they are the lowest of contemptible worms.
This doesn’t make sense. It’s irrational in a game where 80% must lose by statistical law to hate the inevitable losers.
Someone has to win; someone has to lose.
Life goes on.
This, then, is the fatal flaw of the PUAsphere, the lunatic notion that any man can be Alpha or that all men can be Alphas, if only they would just try.
And every man on Earth can be rich, too? When everyone is a millionaire, $1 million and $1.69 would buy you a Slurpee at a 7-11.
Granted there are things to be learned from the most awful of people. And Roissy’s site is awash with what I might call ugly truths. The things about life that are so ugly and cruel and vicious, yet nevertheless so true that we cannot ignore them. On a lode-laden mountain, the ugliest, most dangerous, muddiest, most savage spring floods can bring forth some excellent nuggets worth a pretty penny.
Take what you want or need from these ugly sites, but don’t get caught up in the spite. And don’t forget to wear some face protection on PUA sites. The sheer malign hatred emanating off these sites can literally fly off the screen and pound your face. That stuff stings like acid.
One final note, that this cold-hearted sociopathic character known as Roissy has picked up the cruelest of economic philosophies, Libertarianism, should come as no surprise.
That he added a shocking and virulent form of White Nationalist racism against NAM’s to complement the generous helpings of misogyny he serves up is no shocker either.
Haters gotta hate. In mental health, one notion is that fear spreads. Someone starts out afraid of spiders, and the terror slowly spreads until they are nearly afraid of their shadow, so agoraphobic that and can barely go outside anymore. This is proven well enough to me anyway.
But if fear spreads, then it’s wicked brother Cain, hate, must spread too. People start out hating the guy who beat them at basketball, and eight years down the road, you’re got Eliot Rodger with a semi-auto mowing down blond hotties at the beach.
