The Greatest South Park Episode Ever

Maybe the greatest TV half hour ever. This episode is perfection from beginning to end. The Ring.

There is very little in TV and film that promulgates my worldview. My themes are beyond the pale, which really means the truth is beyond the pale. South Park comes close. The Wire, too. Swingers and Roger Dodger contain elements. In The Company Of Men was brutally clear. I’ve noticed that women who have seen Neil LaBute’s masterpiece universally hated it, when in reality they would be all over the type of men portrayed by Aaron Eckhart’s smooth talking, manipulative alpha character.

A lot of Hollywood’s critically-acclaimed “dark” films aren’t truthful, they’re just subversive, which is not necessarily the same thing. I don’t think unflinchingly candid films stripping to the bone the monstrously human motivations of all the characters, including the sympathetic protagonists, do very well because people don’t want to be reminded of their true, ugly natures. Is there a more powerful cognitive bias than self-delusion?

  1. absolutely- one of the best this last season. not only the teen-sexuality theme, but the evil Mickey Mouse as well. I also think the famous “Scott Tenorman” episoes is very Roissyesque in its theme of vengeance…

    Thanks for the tip. Ive not heard of this one. Man Ive gotten off the hollywood bandwagon. Getting me to see a movie thesedays is like trying to pull teeth. Theyve lost the power to titilliate or enteratain me. I literally hardly ever even -rent- a movie now. Reading about the real world, watching documenturaries about the real world, and experiencing the real world, and reading real people’s anonymous uncensored thoughts (blogs like Roissy’s) is a hell of a lot more informative and entertaining to me personally.

    ” Is there a more powerful cognitive bias than self-delusion?” Tom Wolfe wrote in “A Man In Full” through one of his characters that basically the forces and emotions that were the most powerful, the ones that really drive human behavior hardly ever get mentioned in print, and that masculine humiliation might be the most powerful of these.

    Guys aren’t mad that women ‘make them wait. In fact, almost all men, even those of very high status, are willing to wait a reasonable amount of time. PUA’s probably enjoy the prolonged chase. Waiting will also tend to make men stick around longer(the sunk-cost effect). Men get mad at women for rejecting them. Not for being made to wait.

    As Obsidian said:

    Its very important for me to point out that while I understand the importance of a good seduction, that is completely different from what you’re talking about, which is “holding out” so to speak. I understand the rationale, but I’ve learned a long time ago that Women usually decide fairly quickly if they want you to jump their bones or not-and it don’t take days or weeks either. Not even hours.

    The seduction process is completely apart from all that. Its part of the dance that prepares a Woman for what’s about to happen; she’s already put it out there that she wants it to happen!-but because Women are more inherently longterm pairbond oriented, they tend to need and like, “foreplays” like seductions.

    When aoefe is ‘letting a man down gently’.. or to correctly say it, she has rejected him on the first date but he will be angry is she makes that clear so she strings him along for a few dates before dumping him so he doesn’t get mad at her.. he often figures this out. And then he is mad at her.
    But Aoefe would say “I didn’t reject him, I’m still thinking about it” to which I say:

    Above average men can read the basic signals of women. They can tell if a woman wants them, but is holding herself back. They can also tell if the woman DOES NOT want them, and is having quite the easy time of ‘holding herself back’.

    Aoefe then rationalizes this as “he is upset I won’t sleep with him now”. No, Aoefe, he has correctly decided that Aoefe will NEVER sleep with him. And that is why he is mad.

    Then he may push for sex to force Aoefe to ‘fold’ her bluff of ‘still making up her mind’. No doubt Aoefe is quite mad at being called on her transparent dissembling.

    Many men who are stupid orbiters of hot women would be better off if they had the balls to tell the women who has strung them along for months as a second or third string “I want to make-out, now”. Then she would be forced to say no and they could move on.

    So to sum it up, as long as the woman WANTS to have sex with the man, he won’t mind waiting(within reason, girls, within reason). If you DO NOT want to have sex with the guy, then that is what he is mad about. Your rejection of HIM, not your rejection of sex.

  11. I *love* all the movies and shows listed here, especially In the Company of Men. It’s so brutal because each act of cruelty can be logically justified, and makes sense under the circumstances. It shows that the rational animal (man) is the most dangerous of all. I would hesitate to call it a realistic worldview though, as I don’t think events would play out this way in a real workplace with the lucrative possibilities of a sexual harassment lawsuit.

    Has anyone seen LaBute’s awful remake of the Wicker Man? It struck me as a hilarious parody of alpha behavior, with Nic Cage literally charging around in a grizzly bear suit punching women out.

    When I think of ‘the Roissy worldview’, I actually think more of Jack Nicholson’s character in Five Easy Pieces.

    If I’m not physically attracted on the first date, then there won’t be a second one. I won’t be rude about it, I’ll be polite and say I didn’t feel there was enough in common etc. Truthfully the primary reason to not meet the second time will be I wasn’t attracted on the physical level. This has nothing to do with his looks either, it’s the intangible energy, the knowledge you want to touch each other in some way. I have too much ‘need’ to wait to see if there’s attraction by going out a second time. I wait so I can see that I’m not investing in someone who’ll be a bad match. My emotions get too easily tangled once I’ve had sex, that’s a girl trait.

    I meet a lot of men. In fact I have two meetings today, two meetings tomorrow and one on Monday and a second meeting or call it an actual first date on Thursday. This sounds over the top when I write it, but frankly I think its a numbers game. Why spend weeks trying to build chemistry, its either there or its not. Once I’ve allowed myself to think, yes the chemistry is there and the personal qualities are there, then I stop meeting others and become exclusive. Only when I’m exclusive will sex enter the picture and then only after I’ve seen a couple of his sides. In all cases where I’ve dated exclusively we’ve had sex and I knew they knew it would be happening, it was kind of an undeniable attraction.

  13. CW,
    Thanks for the citation, and you hit the nail on the head-it is ALWAYS best for a Woman to tell a Man she is NOT *sexually attracted to* exactly that, *right away*. Now, she doesn’t have to be rude or mean about it, but she must be direct and firm:

    “Look Bill, you seem like a very nice Man, but I need you to know that I am not sexualy attracted to you and would like to ask you to please stop…”

    Now, when the vast majority of guys hear it being said to em like *that*, believe me, they’ll get the message and move on-and like CW said, you gotta do this right away. Don’t even let it get to a date if you can help it, because again, you ladies know pretty quick if you want him inside you or not. Make the kill efficient and clean and quick, its better for everyone that way.

    Oh, and I’ve actually done what CW said-I told the Nurse that if she didn’t do her duty I was out the motherfuckin’ door w/the quickness, never to return or look back. Now, as many of you know, I’m a very laidback, easygoing guy-but do not get me angry. And I was pissed the fuck off because she tried to do what CW was talking about and I’d had it. I slapped the shit outta her w/the gauntlet and told her to get out my sight. Trembling in fear, she did.

    About an hour later when she thought I had cooled off she make me a multicourse dinner including a cake and when I finished she lifted her dress and assumed the position-and she was dripping wet, too.

    So yea, Asshole Game does indeed work.

    Yea, I just got finished reading Sailer’s thoughts on the parallels between the Jackson 5 and the Osmonds. Particularly Michael Jackson and Donnie Osmond, as they were both about the same age in 1970.

    The Jackson family was/is, if I recall alright, Jehovah’s Witnesses? And of course as you note, the Osmonds were Mormons which right off the bat makes em weird in most Americans’ eyes.

    Both had tv shows, too. And they both had the chance to sing the same song; the Osmonds got One Bad Apple after the Jackson 5 passed it up for A-B-C.

    Personally I think its unfair to attempt any comparison btw Donnie and Michael, its like trying to compare a nice Mustang to a Rolls.

    I have only had one ltr and I met him in my 20th year so I dont have a lot of experience when it comes to make relationships work, cuz obviously mine didn’t. Back to your point, last year I had a four month relationship with a guy that if I’d followed my new strategy for meeting/dating would have saved the guy heartache. I still feel bad. I wasn’t attracted to him physically the first date but…he was a doctor. He was very intelligent, and treated me like I was very special. I hoped beyond hope I would develop an attraction to him. We had sex after date five because I knew it was time and I didn’t like holding out. The sex was not great. In time he revealed he is a submissive man and would love a woman to tie him up and dominate him. I’m the total opposite in my desire. It had to end. Looking back I realize my lack of attraction from the get go was a big tell tale sign. I won’t make the same mistake again. Lesson learned.

    I had one of the two meetings I have planned for today. No attraction for me. Complicated personal history too, his wife is still in his home after recently coming out as a lesbian and he plans to live with for another six years while they finish paying off their home. He still loves her, but not in ‘that way’. I kind of felt that he was allowing himself to be taken advantage of, but that’s only my opinion.

    We did have some very good discussion about men and women even the alpha/beta conversation. I don’t regret meeting him, but he’s scratched off for a second meeting and he is aware of it.

    Women obsess about the reasons why and often wait a few dates or whatever the case to feel “validated” in their reasons for finding a man attractive.”

    @LR —

    I think this is a bit simpler.

    For virtually all men, attraction is a very simple matter of physical appearance, and it can be adduced in less than ten seconds. There is no “why” for us — the why is patently obvious.

    That doesn’t mean men don’t think through whether they want to date a woman, or keep dating her and so on. But *attraction* itself is something that is identified almost instantly. There’s no thought needed.

    For women, it’s more complex as you point out, and as Obsidian rightly explains — for reasons of evo-psych. These reasons apply to most women (not all — hence Poetry here whom I would guess judges sexual attraction rather more quickly and without the longer vetting most women take), regardless of whether they plan getting pregnant by the guy — the attractional stuff, and the thought process behind putting off sex, applies in all circumstances, regardless of contraception. It’s wired into the attractional dynamic for women, just as pushing for sex is wired into the attractional dynamic for men.

    Nurse Betty is an awful film which inaugurated the one of the most precipitous declines of the 1990s of an American director. Hartley, Jarmusch, and David O. Russell at least made three solid films before their declines, but LaBute only made two (Company and Your Friends and Neighbors). At the time, because those first two films were so outstanding, I gave LaBute a pass on the awful Nurse Betty since he didn’t even write it. I figured he just did it for the money he needed for his own subsequent project. But alas, every film since Betty has been garbage. Very sad.

Torture does work, but should we do it? The issues presented In the Company of Men (and this Blog often) are true. The question is how do we remain moral in the face of these truths. This is the struggle. I don’t agree with Roissy that to throw up your hands and say, “fuck it”, is the answer, but I understand that I could be wrong. I, for instance, have everything a man could expect and still find myself questioning the point of it all.

Chris Rock being obsessed with “Jasmine is not a lesbian!” The ruthlessness of the show-runner, the belief that Betty was “method” and “in character.” The utter inanity of women’s entertainment, particularly soap operas. That none of the characters acted sensibly because they were slaves to their obsessions.

    I didn’t like LaBute’s earlier stuff because there was no one to root for — I liked the Zellwegger character, a traumatized, fantasy-life innocent, and the “attempting to have standards” Freeman character who’s life is running out. Chris Rock as a guy who stood for basically nothing but the next job or girl, with an uncertain relationship to Freeman.

    The rest of the characters were weakly drawn, but the film was entertaining because it was weird. And ultimately hopeful and optimistic.

    If you have to constantly ‘work’ to keep your(?) woman in line, why care?

    It is far easier and much more gratifying to buy sex.. at least you get what you are paying for.. and you can get what you really want, as opposed to self-justifying what you can get. Plus no alimony, dates or child support!

    and why would you put in all the effort to pickup, date or have a relationship with a woman when you can buy the parts you want without receiving the parts you don’t care about?

    Intelligence is about systematic and well thought out optimizations rather than following orthodoxy and dogma.

I hurt someone by trying it the other way, I really hoped I’d become attracted, he was a fantastic man in many ways. Fortunately I didn’t string him along and I could have easily, he deserved someone who would be attracted to him in every way. I wouldn’t repeat the same behaviour twice it was a learning experience, unfortunately I hurt someone while I learned.

  77. the simpsons is still OK objectively – they rotate writers every few years. i think everyone’s basically just tired of it -how many times can you look at the same charaters and tell the same kinds of jokes? it has many imitators, but South Park is still too politically incorrect to have many copiers.

    SP also can stay very topical because they can write and produce a whole episode in less than two weeks – from writing to airtime. that can make for some amazing real-time satire – the terry schiavo episode a couple of years ago was particularly great in that regard. it aired a day or so after she died and when the national “debate” (=shallow clusterfuck) about that case was at its height.

    that’s why i love south park – not because it’s crude and/or gross, but because at its best it’s awesomely on-point social satire, of a kind you still really don’t see too many other places.

    What I was trying to say, and did not explain properly, is that other people are living in that land now. Other people, who don’t necessarily support Castro, but are oppressed under his regime. The people living in Cuba don’t support Castro anymore than anyone else does. The only successful thing Castro has done is terrorize and oppress everyone. And destroy Cuba.

    Other people are living on that property. That’s the sad truth. And to kick them off is as bad as Castro kicking the original owners off.

    The old Cubans living in Miami are taking their pensions from the American government, most likely living better than they would have in Cuba. I can understand their want to go back, how homesick they feel. But if Castro were removed from power and Cuba were to have a democracy, it would still be in shambles. It wouldn’t be successful like it was before, it would take generations to fix. That odious Castro has driven it to the ground.

    I’m just thinking that people should be more practical. The American government (kennedy) wouldn’t side with us. He abandoned a bunch of exiles to get killed and imprisoned. The American government helped Castro get into power, and wouldn’t help get him out. How typical.

    I feel terrible for those still stuck in Cuba and pray for them everyday. I can’t send them clothes or food or medicine like I used to because of the embargo, but it doesn’t mean I’m supporting Castro.

  113. Interesting that Science Daily links this article to “misogyny” – as if a scientific finding that men agree on what constitutes female beauty is somehow “misogynistic”. If we all like hot women, we must hate women, right?

    Objective standards of female beauty:

    Rating Attractiveness: Consensus Among Men, Not Women, Study Finds

    ScienceDaily (June 27, 2009) — Hot or not? Men agree on the answer. Women don’t.

    There is much more consensus among men about whom they find attractive than there is among women, according to a new study by Wake Forest University psychologist Dustin Wood.

    The study, co-authored by Claudia Brumbaugh of Queens College, appears in the June issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

    “Men agree a lot more about who they find attractive and unattractive than women agree about who they find attractive and unattractive,” says Wood, assistant professor of psychology. “This study shows we can quantify the extent to which men agree about which women are attractive and vice versa.”

    More than 4,000 participants in the study rated photographs of men and women (ages 18-25) for attractiveness on a 10-point scale ranging from “not at all” to “very.” In exchange for their participation, raters were told what characteristics they found attractive compared with the average person. The raters ranged in age from 18 to more than 70.

    Before the participants judged the photographs for attractiveness, the members of the research team rated the images for how seductive, confident, thin, sensitive, stylish, curvaceous (women), muscular (men), traditional, masculine/feminine, classy, well-groomed, or upbeat the people looked.

    Breaking out these factors helped the researchers figure out what common characteristics appealed most to women and men.

    Men’s judgments of women’s attractiveness were based primarily around physical features and they rated highly those who looked thin and seductive. Most of the men in the study also rated photographs of women who looked confident as more attractive.

    As a group, the women rating men showed some preference for thin, muscular subjects, but disagreed on how attractive many men in the study were. Some women gave high attractiveness ratings to the men other women said were not attractive at all.

    “As far as we know, this is the first study to investigate whether there are differences in the level of consensus male and female raters have in their attractiveness judgments,” Wood says. “These differences have implications for the different experiences and strategies that could be expected for men and women in the dating marketplace.”

    For example, women may encounter less competition from other women for the men they find attractive, he says. Men may need to invest more time and energy in attracting and then guarding their mates from other potential suitors, given that the mates they judge attractive are likely to be found attractive by many other men.

    Wood says the study results have implications for eating disorders and how expectations regarding attractiveness affect behavior.

    “The study helps explain why women experience stronger norms than men to obtain or maintain certain physical characteristics,” he says. “Women who are trying to impress men are likely to be found much more attractive if they meet certain physical standards, and much less if they don’t. Although men are rated as more attractive by women when they meet these physical appearance standards too, their overall judged attractiveness isn’t as tightly linked to their physical features.”

    The age of the participants also played a role in attractiveness ratings. Older participants were more likely to find people attractive if they were smiling.

    Would you call this justice? I’m just wondering, because before we can argue about justice, we need to define it.

    And furthermore, because it is impossible for you to read or understand words, I’m not going to even bother with the Obama argument.

  129. Sheesh, Lurker, sometimes you sound completely mad. She’s got a valid point in saying that it might be difficult to determine who owns what in Cuba now. Latin nations are notorious for not having solid, well-kept property ownership records, especially in the New World. That’s why the economist Hernando Soto has said that establishing such records ought to be the first order of the day for countries in Central and South America if they want to modernize their economies.

    Regarding native North Americans and their property rights, or lack of them: you are mistaken if you think that the original owners are long dead. Many of the most crooked land deals with native peoples on this continent were made in the 20th century and are quite easy to trace, thanks in part to our thorough and well-kept land offices and legal records.

    I don’t know enough about the Cuban situation to know if Mandy is right about the difficulty of handing property back to Cubans who left the country, but I think her suggestion is at least plausible. You make yourself sound hysterical when you attack her in such personal terms for her comments. If you simply think she’s wrong and have good reasons for believing it, why not just say so, instead of calling her names?

    p.s. I’m not a socialist of any kind and I believe property rights are of primary importance in any civilised society.

    “I don’t know enough about the Cuban situation to know if Mandy is right about the difficulty of handing property back to Cubans who left the country, but I think her suggestion is at least plausible.”

    I think one of the issues is that so many of the exiles claim that they owned ranches with I don’t know how many acres of land. While I want to believe them, the island can only be so big. It can fit only so many 500 acre ranches.

    Also, with the communist regime, a house that fit a family of four was essentially carved up to fit four families of four. These people are staying in Cuba and living under the communist regime. According to the dictatorship, this is their land now (or rather, the government’s land). I mean, if the dictatorship falls and people want to go back and reclaim their houses and farms, how will they get them back? Four families of four will easily overthrow one person.

    As it is, the reason Obama won over younger Cubans, is because these new Cubans consider themselves part of a demographic of Cuban Americans. AMERICANS. They worry about what this country has to offer them, not Cuba. This is partially why McCain lost the vote among the younger set (and by younger, I mean fifty and under). Republicans repeated over and over the Castro would say bye bye, and uh…yeah, he didn’t. They were false promises. Instead of coming to Miami and eating rice and beans, donning a guayabera, or holding up a pair of maracas, he talked about issues CubanAMERICANS would face. And that won over a lot of people.

    I’m not being pro-Obama, I’m being a realist.

    Older Cubans (and some younger ones) still hate Obama because he’s black and a communist.

    Similar things happened with a former Superintendent of the school district. Yes, he was corrupt, but a lot of racial divisions occurred between the board and the community. The current superintendent is just as corrupt, has had an affair, but is a Portuguese immigrant who worked his way to the top and is living the American dream, so everybody loves him.

    on the cuban-property substance of that argument, i agree with you that they *should* get their homes and land back (and I don’t recall that mandy disagreed with you) but probably with her that it won’t be politically possible after castro finally attends his long-deserved communist rally down below.

    the same issue came up after the unification of germany, in which decades-long residents of the west had title to property in the east which had been given legally, under the communist system and after nationalization, to other people. Since the west took over the east, the Wessis won in the end, and property rights were vindicated. but it caused many years of legal uncertainty which delayed investment and reconstruction in the east. the analog to the cuba situation would be if the u.s. took over cuba and imposed its legal system – basically impossible.

    “In the Company of Men” is admirable for how balls out ruthless the alpha is, and how excruciatingly tense some of the scenarios are, but it is still, imo, in lock step with the hollywood/swpl/etc demonization of male sexual desire. The alpha, representative of male nature, is depicted as a genuine sadist and sociopath, is judged viciously as such. Meanwhile, there is no assertion of the cold, manipulative nature of females–in fact, just the opposite (the co-worker being depicted as a soft, tender, well-meaning entity with “no say” in the any of the machinations the men put her through)–nor is there a clear assertion of the way in which females regularly reward sadistic, sociopathic behavior. In his courting of her, the alpha unquestionably takes on the typical “nice guy persona,” albeit with unusual confidence and good looks.

    Also, the alpha is simply too evil to be representative of universal male nature. Very few men–who, after all, are typically the true romantics of the two sexes–can stomach the administration of that kind of brutality, let alone are they ever casually amused by it (the scene where he makes the young BLACK co-worker–remember, WHITE ANGLO SAXON MALES are the only source of all the evil in the world–strikes me as particularly beyond the pale of 99% of men).

    “Your Friends and Neighbors,” on the other hand, is a masterpiece. Ben Stiller’s character–deeply flawed, heartless, and led around by his dick 75% of the time-committed passionately to his professional mission the other 25% of the time–is a far more accurate depiction of true male nature. “YFAN” doesn’t let the females off the hook either, with the sociopath in the movie shown with a stead stream of hot pussy, and the “sweet, innocent” woman of the movie cheating on her beta husband with the slimeball Stiller.

    “You’ve already shit on your own flesh and blood;”

    Ok, so snotface here might be joking, or not. This is getting tired and drawn out. But I think I should take a moment to say something people here might benefit from:

    When my grandmother was dying of breast cancer (this was nearly fifty years ago) my grandfather was having multiple extramarital affairs. She died (some say it was his fault) and that same week another woman was giving birth to his baby. He married her and moved to Venezuela, telling my mother (four at the time) that her mother was still alive, recovering at the hospital. Then he sent her to a boarding school.

    When my family moved to America he refused to send child support checks. He sold my mother’s car and business and kept the money, telling people that she was institutionalized and crazy.

    Simply put, he’s done crap like this his whole life. He’s a weasel, he was involved with Carlos Andres Perez, arguably one of the most corrupt Venezuelan presidents (though nowhere near as bad as Chavez), although he made venezuela very rich through oil.

    I know for the most part the PUA standpoint doesn’t support this BS. But I know that some abuse their power and think this is pimptastic alphaness. Basically, right now, everyone in the family hates my grandfather. He’s manipulative, ruins marriages, etc.

    He’s family. I don’t disrespect him to his face, I’m not rude to him. But what he’s done, and is still doing to everyone else, is not forgotten by anyone. So remember this guys. I know some of you one here have amazing social skills, and this gives you a lot of power. Don’t abuse it. You might end up like him.

    Japan out-strips them all, and has a relatively balanced gender ratio. Japan’s sex ratio according the CIA world factbook is 1.06/1 under 15 years male/female; has a sky high savings rate. China’s gender ratio for under 15 years is 1.13 male/female (official stats, probably much, much higher).

    High savings characterizes places where pensions are laughable, inflation or expectations of it are high (Latin America), banking pretty primitive, and no major capital markets or major consumption items (cars, houses).

  242. Watched “In the Company of Men” last night.

    Brutal. Absolutely Brutal.

    Watching the beta male was watching a train wreck in slow motion.

    I didn’t give two shits when the Alpha male couldn’t keep a straight face and broke the deaf woman’s heart. She wasn’t the innocent angel that they portrayed her as- how long did she string along that Beta? Weeks? She’s just as amoral and self-centered as the Alpha character. She strung along the Beta and played him for the same reason the Alpha character did it to her- because she could. And she did it shamelessly and without guilt. Its only when the beta’s confessions of love put her on the spot that she became uncomfortable- she couldn’t string him along anymore.

    I understand the basis as to why the woman was suppose to get our pity but really- she’s no more pitiable then the beta. In fact- I think that’s the central irony of the film- that their little plot to inflict emotional pain on a woman, for the emotional pain they recievied for being strung along and having the time/money wasted by selfish self-cenetered women in the past, was actually being inflicted on a woman who was exactly the same (aside from the deafness) as the women who had done those same actions in the past. The Beta was in the perfect position to have his juicy memory of revenge on womankind but he blows it…. because he’s Beta.

    Like


  243. Like Aenigma, I did too watch it. My take on parts of it are different though.

    The deaf woman was self-centered. She strung him along because it made her feel good about herself. She decides to come clean way after long last and she expects to be forgiven, etc. He does the same and his pleas fall, literally, on deaf ears.

    The beta, oddly enough, does not ever actually do anything really wrong. Yeah, he does limply agree to do this thing, but when with the actual woman, he goes all gooey. At no point, that I remember, did he actually do anything evil or callous.

    Now, I’m perfectly aware of what the movie was supposed to be about: evil, racist, soulless corporate America blah blah blah. But the writer/director actually fails in this. Yeah, they had that ridiculously contrived scene with the black dudes balls but that was a scene that could have been cut because it was utterly extraneous.

    You must read the reviews from Rotten Tomatoes. They are hysterical. The girl is referred to, routinely, as a nice, sweet innocent flower. The beta boy is lambasted for being evil without, again, not actually having done anything evil.

    I think you’re doing everything right now aoefe, both from your own point of view, in quickly sorting though men you’re not that (or at all) attracted to, and in not wasting their time either or being unnecessarily harsh about it. (I doubt this last was ever an issue for you.)

    I would guess your experience dating that doctor who finally came out to you about his being sexually submissive has a good bit to do with your simply saying upfront that want a man who will lead and be sufficiently dominant (in a caring way). You figure it would have weeded him out from the get go and saved you both a lot of time.

    Very true. I was aware of what I wanted/needed but wasn’t being as upfront as I am now.

    Funny thing is now I state very clearly I want a man who’ll take control and who will lead and they get this false impression I’m shy. Most aren’t actually getting the message prior to meeting me. I think primarily because it’s unusual for a woman to willingly admit to not wanting to be in charge, therefore they look at me as insecure. Which is really very funny. I had a great first meeting with a dude on Sat and he said he had that impression and knew the minute we started to talk he was wrong. He liked my personality but for others my confidence may not jive with what I’ve stated. Am I making sense?

  250. LSB,
    Hey, thanks for the input and questions and input.

    To answer your question, in a nutshell one of my ladies basically tried to see how foar I would go w/o putting out, and tried to use my classic kindness for weakness; when I’d had enough, I put a stop to it. Today I’m proud to report that she does her duty very well, thank you very much.

    As for your views, my own sense is that I feel very sorry for Indian guys overall; their Women are taking them for a serious ride. I say that because you expect to get the best of both worlds-taken out, flowers, etc et al, in other words expecting to be treated in the traditional manner, while at the same time enjoying a 21st century *Western Woman* lifestyle-highly educated and very well gainfully employed, and all that comes with it. In other words, you have no real reason to put out, because simply put, there are more than enough Indian chumps who’ll be more than gald to do so, to your “satisfication” of course, knowing what we do about how and what turns Women on, in the end it is highly unlikely that you’ll “settle” for any of these guys, at least not for the foreseeable future. After you’re on the other side of 30, perhaps. But not now.

    Simply put LBS, fellas who know better here in the West have no reason to do “the traditional thing” because we get *nothing* from it, but you do. If you really want a traditional existence as much as you claim, then I suggest you repratriate back to New Delhi, quit your high post gig and allow your parents to select a good boy from say, the IT colossus of Southern India, and call it a day.

    Somehow, I don’t think you’ll be with that, even though it’ll give you what you write ad nauseum about, namely not putting out w/o the promise of marriage.

    Like I said, if there’s one group on the planet that NEEDS Game, its the guys named Sanjay and Gopal. Who woulda thunk that the land that produced the Kama Sutra now sees itself in the siuation its in where its Women get over like a fat rat and its Men are rank chumps.

    This makes perfect sense to me. In fact, I was sure you’d run into this problem. I almost said something to you about this on your blog.

    It may be hard to completely get around it, but you maybe can somewhat by refining your message some. Actually along the lines of what I’ve quoted above.

    You can say:

    I guess it’s a bit unusual these days for a woman to say she’s naturally submissive to a man she’s very attracted to, but that’s not because I’m at all a doormat type, or shy or insecure. I just understand myself better than many perhaps. In fact i lead all the time in my work. Not just any man can make me want to be submissive to him. But he doesn’t have to be a massive he man type necessarily either. I like intelligent men but forceful ones too. Some men might find it easier to be in charge and leading with me than with other e.g. more feminist women, but he has to have it in him as something he wants and can readily do too.

    Obviously modify according to what you actually are looking for. If you leave out the “he-man” reference for example you may save yourself from wasting time with men that don’t have enough natural dominance, but you may also tend to exclude guys who might blossom with you but haven’t in the past been real dominant with women. Similar issues about using the word “dominance”. So it’s a balance according to what you actually DO want, the volume of replies and interest you’re getting, your time for first face to face meetings and so on.

    If you have to constantly ‘work’ to keep your(?) woman in line, why care? ”””””””””””””””””’

    It is like one of the biggest challenges in your life. Can you make this bitch love you for life and will she be there to wipe your ass if your an invalid and shes not.

  262. “The Beta was in the perfect position to have his juicy memory of revenge on womankind but he blows it…. because he’s Beta.”

    Only a Roissy fan (or Roissy) could be stupid enough to take that away from the movie.

    The so-called Beta blows it because he isn’t proud of his goodness. He lets the Eckhart character define the frame, and gets caught up in a game he can’t win because it’s about cruelty and deception, and also lets the douchebag character undermine him at work.

    Like I said, the so-called Beta just should’ve just written the Eckhart douchebag character up for being blatantly cruel about the disabled on company time, gotten him kicked off his project, and gone on his merry way.

    All these douchebag “Alphas,” they don’t have actual merit, so their only hope is to get other people to hand over power. So just don’t hand it over, and watch the parasite douchebags die.

  288. Obsidian – Thanks also for the input and for taking the time to respond. You seem to be highly articulate and insightful, so I’ve been keen to hear your thoughts!

    If you don’t believe in marriage, that’s your choice and I and anyone else has to respect that. The world is big enough to accomodate all lifestyles, and who’s really to judge what’s the better way? (I’d say God but that’s also just my opinion hehe :-)) But just look at the marriage rate in the USA or any other country… the majority still believe in marriage and are doing it.

    As long as I get guys who are marriage-minded types and you get girls who don’t need marriage, we’re both happy no? So it’s all good, all types can coexist happily 🙂

    Also, very curious why you think Indian men are at a disadvantage? They still rule Indian society – just look at the common practice of sex selective abortion, there are not enough Indian women to go around for Indian men nowadays. Men will always be considered more valuable than women in India.

    And just watch any Bollywood movie, or even watch a good sampling of Indian couples interact inside or outside the home… the man is treated like king by the whole family, and he acts like he’s the boss too.

    About Indian women wanting to have a career and be all feminist… I hope you are not comparing Indian diaspora (Indian people who have emigrated) culture to the home culture. Men are still always considered to be the rulers of the family, and even if women have a career it is expected they will never, ever outshine their mine and will maintain their domestic role as well. I think many Indian career women do a pretty good job of doing both, my cousins stay stuff all the time like, “I thought about trimming my hair but he wouldn’t let me, he likes it long,” “When Chhotu was born, he told me that I should just stop working, it wasn’t necessary any more,” “He told me I should switch to a government job since it would be less hours.” Husbands becomes fathers basically…

    To talk about my personal experience, the only reason I have the career that I do is because my parents made me do it just like many Indian parents. (Check out mylifeisdesi.com for dozens upon dozens of funny stories of how Indian parents basically program their kids on how to be.)

    If it were my choice, I would have done fashion design or become a school teacher rather than the kinda masculine energy job I’m in. But my father felt that I should have a “fall back” option (a well-paying career based on an education in science/engineering) in case my future husband couldn’t take care of me. Also I’m sure my father, a very very good man who always took care of us, knew he wasn’t rich enough to fully fund me going into something low-paying.

    Also… I’m wondering if we have just formed different ideas of Indian culture based on different sample sizes. Meaning, we’ve interacted with different types. The most macho men in India come from my hood, Punjab. Punjabi men are notorious players, womanizers, and thugs. They are always ready to get into a fight over anything, they are taller than the rest of Indian men and bigger too. And all the ladies throughout Indian love them. So I don’t really think Indian men have a problem getting girls and keeping them in their place…

    VERY SORRY for the extremely long post… Indian society and culture today is a very complex topic, I probably am not well suited to discussing it! But did want to respond.

  289. Obsidian – lastly, please read my About on my blog, why do you think I don’t want to get married soon? My #1 goal in life right now is to get married as soon as possible. But I’m not acting marriage-despo-crazy because that would cause me to probably make a bad decision or simply scare off lots of normal guys!

    I hope and pray to God I’m not 30 by the time I get married. Eeeks… scary. If it does happen it’ll suck, and I’ll deal with it. But I’m doing everything in my power to not wait that long. I should have gotten married in my early 20s for sure, but life didn’t quite turn out that way… yes I have been engaged but it was clearly not meant to be (very loooong story).

    Plus, I think God wanted me to learn some lessons on how to act more feminine and be more at peace with myself. I didn’t know at age 22 what I know now. I think I will be a much better wife now that I’ve unprogrammed some of the feminazi thinking… and have dealt with some of my insecurity/anger at my upbringing issues (lol).

    Getting all of the romantic stuff you allude to would be great, sure, but more important is the GUY himself – is he a good man, does he take the leader role, is he a man’s man, is he extremely attracted to me and turned on by me, and is he ready to dedicate his life to our marriage. Empty romantic gestures don’t mean anything compared to how his actions are in general.

  292. LSB,
    Thanks for the reply. Yes, I’m quite familiar w/India, and of course, its middle classes, of which number more than the whole population of the USA, and who are the most represented in the West.

    I’m also familiar w/the Punjab areas of both Indian and Pakistan, having known quite a few people from the place(s). One of my dear mentors hails from Punjab, India, a 6th generation jyotishi. Unless I miss my guess, the Singhs tend to hail from that partof India, and in both countries this is where the bulk of the police and military personnel is drawn from, yes?

    As for the lady shortage in India, yes, I’m aware of it. And actually, plays into the state of affairs I spoke to earlier. One need not a Nobel in economic theory to see how this plays out to an Indian Woman’s advantage.

    Perhaps you’ve heard of an article written sometime back called Sari In The City. Its written by an Americanized Indian Woman like you and is powerful reading for any lady such as yourself. Give it a Google and holla back your impressions.

    As for Indian guys, I don’t know if your familiar with an Indian PUA named Matador. You might wanna look him up. In the meantime, there’s an Indian guy here at Roissy’s named Tood, perhaps he’ll poke his head in our conversation and give his views.

    And yes, I’ve read your blog closely, I spent much of last Saturday doing just that. Of particular interest was your Use & Throw post.

    Finally, although I am quite happy, it is not dependent on the actions or feelings of others; and in any event is wholly irrelevant what I do or don’t think about marriage. What I’m speaking about are the real changes that have occured on the mating landscape for Indian Men especially those in the West. They have decisively swung in favor of the Indian ladies such as yourself.

    Thank you for the kind compliments! I accept.

    Holla back

  296. Well, I was hoping that someone would mention before now, but since they haven’t, it falls to me to do so.

    Here goes.

    South Park fans, of which this venue seems to have quite a few, surely must know that the Eric Cartman character is a homage to one of tv’s greatest known characters-Archie Bunker. Known for his bigotry, sexism and all around acerbic ways, Bunker fast became a fave for tv watchers, w/All in the Family becoming a sitcom fixture. And just goes to show, yet again, our favorite national pastime:

    Obsessing over Race.

    The Wire, of course, also takes up the question of race, against the backdrop of the crack wars, inner city political backroom dealings, crumbling manufacturing sectors, etc. David Simon, the driving force behind the show, recently told Bill Moyers in an interview, that everyone w/half a brain knew what was going on- that Black folk in general, and Black Men in particular, were no longer needed. So long as they were sequestered in a few square miles of inner city environs, their collective dysfunctional bloodletting was something the rest of society was willing to countenance.

    Several episodes of The Wire underscores this and many other points in the form of dialogues between idealistic but woefully naive/misguided teachers, and precocious yet deeply troubled students.

    And then there’s Stringer Bell, a truly tragic figure. Had he been born White and uppercrust, or even Black and of similar social strata, he’d have been a hotshot on Wall St. To be sure, he was a criminal and a killer, but he was, like so many others, a Man of his time and circumstances. We play the cards we’re dealt by Fate, be it a Royal Flush or a bum hand.

    I agree w/Roissy, both shows are so popular w/the American public at large because they speak to unspeakable truths in more polite society; try as we may, our hypocrisy only goes but so far.
