Relationship Game Week: Agree And Amplify

Relationships are merely a continuation of pickup by other means. Just as she must never forget to keep in shape for your pleasure, you must never stop gaming your girl. The day you slip into complacence is the day her love begins to show signs of stress.

Relationships may change but the Game remains the same. There seems to be a mistaken belief among the betacracy that game may be good for pickup but it’ll do nothing at best, and sabotage at worst, your prospects for a long and healthy relationship. These are the beliefs of weak and nutless men who habitually dumpster date women way under their own market value so that they can go on acting like Dr. Phil castrati without consequence. They are also the beliefs of fat and ugly women.

Beta men = fat and ugly women. The resemblance is uncanny!

Naturally, the first few hours, days, and weeks of a courtship will be more exhilarating than the years to follow. After the brash novelty has faded and love begins to take root a mutually comfortable sufficiency will assert itself. An implicit bargain has been struck and there comes an expectation, not wholly removed of anxiety, that your partner isn’t going to bolt, run away, or suddenly despise you from one day to the next. But soft expectations so often morph into hard demands, and then the misalignment with reality begins in earnest.

“If I got fat/beta, would you still love me???”

Eventually, no. As with demographics and economics, there is a lag time in sexual dynamics. This lag time gets longer the more established the relationship becomes. A man who commits one glaring beta act on the approach isn’t going to get more than a few seconds with his target before she blows him out. But a man who has been seeing a girl for two years has to run up a litany of beta fouls before his woman’s love finally dissolves under the onslaught of her mounting disgust. A lower energy, consistent level of relationship game different only in degree, not kind, from pickup game, must be a part of every man’s arsenal of perpetual sexiness.

One thing you will not fail to notice with women is that their shit tests never end, they just fade away… to less annoying frequency. A handy chart demonstrating this female proclivity to endlessly take stock of your alpha cred should make things clear:

The Average Man             # and Intensity of Female Shit Tests
First few minutes              Rapid fire shit tests designed to weed out betas

First few dates                  One or two shit tests per date,
                                          less crass, more subtle

Post-sex                            Possible “I didn’t cum” shit test. Ignore it.

First few weeks                 Shit tests become less obnoxious, more defensive;
                                          (“Are you always this late?”)

First few months                Non-verbal shit tests increase in frequency;
                                           she waits for you to call instead of picking up
                                           phone herself.

Six months later                Endearing love and romance shit tests
                                          begin to flare up;
                                          (“You hardly ever give me flowers.”
                                          “Do you love me?”)

One year in                         Provider shit tests in full swing;
                                           (“Why don’t you buy yourself a bigger place?”
                                           “You never tell me what you do at work.”)

Two years in                      “Life purpose”, marriage, and infidelity shit tests;
                                           (“Where are we going with this?” “Bob just popped
                                            the question to Sarah. Aren’t you happy for them?”
                                            “Are you cheating on me?”)

Thirty years in                   Regret and death shit tests;
                                      (“The kids are gone. I’m not in love anymore.”
                                      “Would you wipe my spotted ass when I’m an invalid?”)

If you aren’t a natural at deflecting shit tests of all varieties, then you must teach yourself. For those men not blessed with the quickness of mind and aloofness of temperament to handle shit tests like a champ, a system must be devised. I’ve found one. I call it the Agree & Amplify anti-shit test counterinsurgency.

The concept is simple. When you are hit with a shit test, agree with your girl, and then amplify your agreement. Here are some examples:

GIRL: “Why didn’t you call last night? Are you dating someone else?”

YOU: “Yep, I’ve got a harem to service. Be happy you’re in the top tier.”

***

GIRL: “Are you just going to sit around all day playing video games?”

YOU: “Damn straight. With enough hard work I should be able to push this to a full month.”

***

GIRL: “We’re going to that restaurant again?”

YOU: “Yeah, and because you’ve bitched, we’re going there for the next ten years.”

***

GIRL: “Sometimes you can be such an asshole. My ex knew how to treat a lady.”

YOU: “I bet he did. You should beg him to take you back. I could use the peace and quiet.”

***

GIRL: “Don’t you have any ambition in life?”

YOU: “Zero. Could you be a dear and hook up my feeding tube?”

***

GIRL: “I didn’t like the way you flirted with that girl at the party tonight.”

YOU: “I know, I’m an incorrigible flirt. Good thing you didn’t see the other ten girls I flirted with. Phew!”

***

GIRL: “You never get me flowers or write me poetry.”

YOU: “You’re right. Just think of my cock as a flower and our fucking as poetry in motion.”

***

GIRL: “I think we should take this slower.”

YOU: “You read my mind! Can I pencil you in next month?”

***

GIRL: [Making it obvious she’s flirting with another guy in your presence.]

YOU: “Hey, if you’re gonna try to make me jealous by flirting in front of me, at least put on a good show. I haven’t seen bad flirting like that since your Mom tried to pick me up.”

***

GIRL: “Buy me a drink.”

YOU: “Sure thing. Would you like my ATM pin number as well?”

***

GIRL: [Calls you back two days after you left her a message.]

YOU: “Only two days later? Wow, you’re slipping. A true player waits a year before calling back.”

***

GIRL: “I really feel we aren’t compatible.”

YOU: “You’re right, we’re *totally* incompatible. I like to wake up at 8:30 and you get up at 8:15. Who can live with that?!”

This last one is especially interesting, because no matter how compatible you are with a girl, she is compelled by an otherworldly force to wonder aloud how incompatible you both are. Expect to receive this shit test around month three. Women have to work through their gina demons, and the issue of “compatibility” is a biggie. For men, if our dicks fit inside her pussy, we’re compatible. For women, a whole host of arcane connections must be made before she can feel you are “the one”. The Agree & Amplify method is the only acceptable response. If you two are incompatible, arguing with her will only highlight that. If you two are compatible, pointing out all the ways you are compatible will only cause her to search more fervently for those few ways you aren’t compatible. Agreeing with her, whether or not she’s right, and making fun of her concerns, is the best way to make her forget all about the issue.

So to all the verbally hamstrung betas, when (not if) you find yourselves confronted by yet another shit test, instead of wracking your brain for the appropriate response just recall the words “Agree & Amplify”. A&A, A&A, A&A. Say it to yourself over and over, and the right answer will come to you.

    A few weeks. 21 days. At most.

    Those 21 days don’t have to be in a row.

    For instance, hang out with a girl for a week in LA.

    2 months later hang out with her for another few days.

    etc.

    Then find a new girl. Or two.

    This is how you keep “the courtship exhilarating”.

    First dates are always the best anyways.

    After that, it typically slides downhill.

  29. Those girl lines are really the examples of what a girl should not say. They would be much better reframed and redelivered with a nice and enthusiastic tone.

    Instead of “Don’t you have any ambition in life?” she could say, “You’re so talented! I think you could be awesome at anything you do. But what do you think you’d rather do?”

    Instead of “I didn’t like the way you flirted with that girl at the party tonight,” she could say, “You’re so hot babe! I saw so many girls checking you out tonight. I think you missed a bunch of girls who were looking at you.” He would say “Really?” She continues, “And you’re so charismatic that even when you aren’t trying to flirt, the girls are just drawn to you.”

    I don’t really like it when guys buy flowers, but if a girl does, she should not say, “You never get me flowers or write me poetry.” She should say something like, “I know you’re such a poetic soul. Don’t you think that flowers and paintings are so pretty? They really liven up a place. What are your favorite flowers?” Wait for his response. “Oh those are gorgeous. Mine are .”

    Never say “Sometimes you can be such an asshole. My ex knew how to treat a lady.” Say, after he made an assholeish comment, “You know, you’re a dick sometimes, but I like it. I like how you don’t take any shit from people, and how you know when to be sweet and sensitive.”

    Question: have there been any posts/comments on shit testing from a virgin who is protective of her virginity? I would expect appropriate answers to change based on the time constraints in the relationship, i.e. whether you are travelling and meet her for a couple of weeks or whether you have time to build trust, etc. Any thoughts on game in such a context, especially game in a relationship with a clear time limit, where the shit tests can be difficult to meet?

  34. Sorry spunk, I don’t do shit tests. So when I’m nice and enthusiastic I am genuine about it, because I’m terrible at faking emotions. A conversation with my guy often goes like this. Me: “You’re so awesome!” Him: “Yeah, I know! I’m totally awesome.” Me, smiling and nodding: “Yep, you are!”

    When he doesn’t play his guitar as much for me, I never would nag him, “Geez, you used to play for me all the time. Why don’t you do it anymore?” When he plays, by his own volition, I say, “Wow babe, that was really amazing.” I don’t even say, “You should do it more often.” I just don’t really care, because I am secure without needing him to prove he will do things for me.

    This is about relationship skills for a girl who is with a great man, not a man who is intending on pumping and dumping her. If a girl has landed a man who is desirable, he will know it, and so will she. She should not be negative and critical. She should be the positive, uplifting presence in his life, and not a drag to be around. Criticisms are best if done out of genuine concern for the other person, not when they are for your own benefit.

  40. I’m dating a girl from another culture. I’d like to be able to use some of these things. She fully understands English, but she is not able to understand sarcasm and takes what I say literally.

    I’d like to use some of these, but I believe she’d take it literally. If I said I was texting my “other girlfriend”, she’d likely think I really had another gf. If I said that she should go back to her ex, she would think I was dumping her.

    I would be risking going to go back and explain that I was joking, which would cause me to come across as more beta.

    So far, I’ve handled shit tests by either ignoring or by curtly brushing it off with a quick answer and continuing what I was talking about before.

    I know you have a lot of experience dating girls from other cultures. You mentioned in your girls around the world thing that when you dated a Finnish girl she couldn’t take any jokes or teasing without being hurt- how do you usually handle shit tests when sarcasm/A&A isn’t a good option?

    I am delighted that you posted this. When I was in college, my girlfriend lived in a house with 5 other girls. This ethics question came up in my presence during girl talk after some alpha let off a surprise batch in one roommate’s mouth the night before. I took note of the harpyness as all the girls chided his rudeness. “What if she hates getting cum in her mouth?” they cried. “Not a good way to get a second blowjob!” These were hollow protests; gina tingles abounded.

    The alpha made a few more appearances before transitioning his game elsewhere. He was held in high regard.

    I considered a warning to be “polite” from then on out, because I was brainwashed into believing what girls SAY they like. Probably missed a few followups by taking the high road. Currently, I’ve been operating on a sliding scale: the easier it is to get the blowjob, the less likely I am to announce my blast. In light of your revelation, I think I will stop altogether.

If you love her and want to make it better, don’t indulge her bad mood with tit for tat. It only puts you in her mood.

    Everything is context and depends on the speaker and the tone of delivery. When my guy made some on the surface asshole-ish comments to me, it did not faze me, because he does it in a teasing and joking tone. They are just little jabs, like how clumsy I am and how cute it is I stumble over things.

    He doesn’t intend any harm by them. I don’t think I try to mother him; to me, mothering is more like lecturing — it’s what my mom did to me. I also let him know when he’s crossed the line into truly being insulting, and he will say sorry for it right away, not dwelling on it but also not “too good to apologize” either.

    So I’ve told him that I kind of like his abrasiveness when dealing with people, because he does it in a joking and upbeat way. It’s a kind of honesty you don’t get from most people. He will tell me straight up when I’ve done something wrong, and he won’t berate me for it, but he will correct me. He will tell me what I need to improve on as well as give me small encouragements. That’s how he taught me how to ride a bike in pretty much a day.

    I’m dating a girl from another culture. I’d like to be able to use some of these things. She fully understands English, but she is not able to understand sarcasm and takes what I say literally.

    i had this problem with russian, finnish and polish girls i dated. A&A would be taken literally, and they would get genuinely hurt. your best bet is to alternate A&A with sincere answers. so if she wonders who you’re texting, tell her not to worry so much, she’s your lublu. sarcasm and cocky/funny don’t translate well with east euro chicks. you’ll have to train her to understand your humor, which could take months.

    also understand that when you first start dating a foreign chick, no matter how hot she is, she will feel lower status than you simply because you’re american. that explains their sensitivity to your sarcasm. treat the foreign girl better than you would treat an american girl. but don’t overdo it with the romantic sincerity. though it will take longer, foreign girls will eventually sniff out and trample on betaness as ruthlessly as american girls.

    Actually it’s wracking your brain (like nerve-wracking). I’m not picking nits. I just think this kind of slip is way beneath you.

    At first she’d laugh and stuff, now she acts all hurt by it. I’ve tried rationally explaining why I’m against it (I’m against PDAs and against her attempt to use me as a ploy in public), and I’ve also told her that if she wants to kiss me she can lean over to me and do it. But she has started getting her feelings hurt over it. What’s the best way to handle this PDA shit test?

  54. When a girl gives you a blowjob for the first time in your relationship, do you warn her when you are about to cum?

    no. unless you want to ham it up like an autistic pornstar. “i’m cumming, definitely cumming. oh yes, definitely… definitely cumming.”

    girls who express disgust or contempt when you cum in their mouths unannounced are not good long term prospects. they are likely to be bitches. or lawyers. same diff. most normal girls who have a problem with surprise spooge will take it in their mouths and then go to the bathroom sink to spit it out. that’s ok, tho swallowing is a sign of deep deep, full-throated love.

    if you want to straddle the fence on this issue, you can prepare her for the blast without announcing it like a street corner newsie. just make your moans louder and your thrusts harder. if she hates cum in her mouth, she’ll get the message and finish off the last couple strokes with her hand.

    another thing you could do — take it to the extreme. give her all the pda she can handle and then some. so when she makes the pouty mouth, go in for the kiss, except rev it up and make out with her massively, licking her neck, squeezing her ass, shoving your tongue in her ear.

  63. There’s a 18 year difference between me and my current red head GF (I’m 43 she is 25).

    After 6 weeks of dating and nice and heavy sex she starts shit testing me heavily.

    Red: “I haven’t even met your parents or friends yet!”
    Me: “I’ve met yours and look where it’s got me.”
    Her response was anger but still a damn good blowjob that night.

    Red: “Your humor is sarcastic and hurtful.”
    Me: “One of us has to be funny.:
    Red: “Women can be funny too…”
    Me: “Not intentionally”
    We went into a deeper discussion and I pointed out to her that she either respects my opinions or she needs to leave. She didn’t.

    Last Sunday night she cooked she cooked me and some friends dinner. During a conversation, my phone rang and it was my 13 yr old son. She was talking and I asked for a bit of quiet. She did not stop talking so I “shushed” her. After everyone left, she looks at me and says…

    Red: “Never shush me again in front of my friends.”
    Me: I looked at her and stood up and walked to the door. As I put on my shoes I told her to give me a kiss and hug and that I was leaving. She gave me this stunned discussion and I said.

    Me: “It’s better if I left right now, I have better things to do than be berated.”
    That night she texts me twice and leaves a message apologizing. I ignored all her communications till next morning. And we are fine again.

    I know this is not a long-term relationship but any man who caves into a women’s shit test deserves any resultant pain on their psyche.

    Tonight at 6 I have another date with a coworker at a local bar. Never ignore other options while dating an “iffy” woman. If your not sure she is the one for you, than make sure to continuously look out for other options.

    I maybe 43 but with my Mediterranean ancestry and looks and 4-5 times Gym workout I figure I can keep dating younger women till I’m 48-50 years old. By that time I’ll look to settle down with one in her early to mid 30’s. Keep your cloths in style and always be clean and presentable without looking like a nerd. Yes that means buying new shirts at least twice a year and getting rid of ones that have past their expiration notice.

    @celtic As for foreign girls not picking up on sarcasm and irony in practice, yeah I’ve gotten that too.

    In addition to alternating reassuring (if also partly sidestepping) answers with sarcastic ones, I’ve also just flat out explained the love of sarcasm in certain wide circles in the US and Britain, and then gave examples, coming back to something like: “you’re supposed to be able to tell, because you’re confidant enough. It’s supposed to be a little conspiracy between us. You know that if I say something extreme enough in response, what I mean is the opposite of what I said.” That actually is a tad misleading. It ignores the fact that what you’re really doing is leaving the answer a touch ambiguous, but it works well.

    You’ll find you need to explain it again several times. Each time with more shorthand. Then you can just look at her funny and she’ll go – “oh, sarcasm”. You can then say “gold star for you” and smirk. Or something like.

    I agree with this. I did not set limits and boundaries in my old relationship, which is why my ex still sees fit to call me all kinds of nasty names while feeling justified.

    It was because for years I tolerated them. My mom trained me to put up with the verbal abuse. Where is a 10 year old kid going to go when mom yells at the kid? So in my old relationship I acted like that same kid, thinking I had nowhere to go.

    Now I know better and would not put up with the abuse. I wouldn’t let a man yell at me for half an hour anymore. I also would not yell or verbally abuse the person I’m with. If I ever catch myself feeling that way again, I would first take a moment to see WTF is wrong with me, and if the problem is really not me, I’d leave.

    Girls enjoy your humor, and they will try to elicit it upon request. Joke type answers will be a show you put on for her amusement. Overuse A&A, and she’ll deem you a tool.

    good point, basil. it’s easy to be too cocky and become her dancing monkey. A&A should be alternated with I&S (Ignore & Switch). the switch is best done non-verbally, or, if verbally, to something completely unrelated, like examining a physical flaw, as you noted.

    This is similar to something S.A. said – sometimes the best response is none. I think I give no reply or silence and smile to 15% of what my girl says.

    Silent brooding over a computer focusing on business might not be considered game, but if it’s an alternation to wild intimacy or a night on the town, it’s a contrast, that the girl does not choose, and that’s game. You make her feel up or down, you are the script-writer of the movie. She doesn’t know if it’s a comedy or a romance or an action thriller coming up.

    One ignore and switch I like to do is the sexual non-sequiter. Can’t think of examples just now, but she’ll say something boring, and I’ll reply something like “Exactly, that’s what I mean. That’s why I need to fuck you right now.”

    There seems to be a mistaken belief among the betacracy that game may be good for pickup but it’ll do nothing at best, and sabotage at worst, your prospects for a long and healthy relationship. These are the beliefs of weak and nutless men who habitually dumpster date women way under their own market value so that they can go on acting like Dr. Phil castrati without consequence.

    Yes. Surely any man, even if he is a soldier, police officer or firefighter, is weak and nutless just because he doesn’t think game is a good idea in a relationship, or a good idea in general. (Hint: this does not make any logical sense.)

    You are confusing healthy relationships with the kind of relationships you’re having. Your relationships are not healthy (I also imagine that they aren’t particularly long). To you, a relationship is not about being with someone you like or love, it’s about control. You devise all these techniques and rules and analyze every aspect of your relationships in minute detail just to make the woman stay with you. That is your only goal. Holding women in thrall to your mighty cock is all you care about, and the reason why you can’t have them dump you is because it would damage your ego and delusions of alpha grandeur. Your relationships are all smoke and mirrors without a hint of sincerity or seriousness.

    On the other hand, the women you date are obviously so shitty (hence the rampant shit testing and whatnot) that it would be difficult to care about them. Ok, you can obviously date whomever you want to, but don’t extrapolate information about all women based on the ones you date and then hand out relationship advice to other people.

    The sample dialogue you posted reminds me of the fact that PUAs are like some fucking goosestepping clone army. Absolutely no personality, individuality or variation, just the same predictable “cocky/funny” bullshit over, over and over again, 24/7, rain or shine.

    DeepThought

    I know this is not a long-term relationship but any man who caves into a women’s shit test deserves any resultant pain on their psyche.

    Don’t date low quality women who shit test. Whether you cave in or provide the correct answer, you are still subjecting yourself to her childish shit testing instead of walking away.

    I expect that this message will not survive the inevitable moderation barrier.

    Agree & Amplify was the watershed moment in understanding all about the idea of “GAME” that I had discovered on the internet.

    I had no clue how badly I was failing shit tests, and why I was always getting into passive-aggressive conflicts. I thought shit tests were logical inquiries based on linear thinking.

    Upon reading the A&A approach to shit tests, now-defunct PUA blog “The Reality Method,” I thought long and hard about how many times I had encountered such tests and failed them miserably.

    The first time I tried A&A, when she asked me if I had a mistress, and I answered that no, I had 4 of them, and I was getting worn out trying to keep them all plus herself satisfied. I was holding my breath trying to see what her reaction would be….she giggled and said “you’re so delusional!” To which I than A&A again…”Damn straight, how else do you think I’ve stayed married to you all these years?” The conversation turned into playful teasing, ending with me spanking her ass and starting to playfully roughhouse.

    Inside, I felt like I had just discovered the holy grail. I spent YEARS in the “What do you mean you think I have a mistress? Why would you think that? You know you’re the only women for me!”

    The next time I got another shit test from her, I was more than ready for it:

    “Do I look fat in this dress?”

    The shit test is really in effect, beta entrapment.

    A sting operation.

    In essence, it is a women’s biological, subconscious gut-check: either it’s “AHA! I KNEW YOU WERE NOT THE ALPHA YOU PRESENTED YOURSELF TO BE! YOU DISGUSTING BETA…I CAN’T BELIEVE I LET YOU SEE ME NAKED!”

    or “Whew, he’s still got genes worthy for our offspring.”

    Dreamer,
    I do agree that Women cannot help shit testing and that Men must be able to deflect it when it happens. Humor is the best way, but there comes a time when more…aggressive methods are needed.

    What I’ve found is that Black Women tend to “frontload” the shit testing, say, earlier on in the dance, so to speak, though some go thru their moods more and so on. That’s when I either get humorous, or, depending on my mood, just step outta the way and let her stew in her stuff.

    And when I’m really tired of the shit testing, I go completely silent. This is like death, because I’m usually a quite talkative person. So when I’m silent…

    Take last week. Brown Sugah was giving me the usual shit tests, and I went completely stone cold.

    Here’s her text msgs, in brief:

    Oh and just for the edification of people that fall under the TokyoBetaGrist delusion that only lower quality women “shit test” it’s important to actually understand exactly what a shit test is.

    Too put it in more refined terminology, it is a CONGRUENCE test.

    Here is some excerpts of what The Reality Method wrote about before he pulled his site down (this shit was so life altering, I saved it to my hard drive long before he decided to take his blog down):

    The shit test is possibly the most brilliant social weapon women have in their arsenal.

    Also known as a “congruency test”, the shit test is a tool used by women both consciously and unconsciously to “screen” the men they come into contact with.

    Women, being blessed with only a limited number of eggs (chances to reproduce) are sexual selectors: they must chose who they will (and will not) sleep with.

    Men, having a basically unlimited number of sperm, ought to try to impregnate as many women as physically possible, in hopes that some of them will bear children.

    Therefore, women are sexually receptive, and men are sexually aggressive. Women get many more offers for sex than men, and must choose which, if any, man she will decide to pair her eggs with in an effort to carry on her genes.

    These evolutionary facts have carried over into modern society and dating despite recent technological advances like condoms and hormonal birth control.

    But condoms and birth control are logical instruments; and choosing a mate is an emotional process for a woman.

    Women, especially attractive women, get plenty of offers for sex – therefore they have learned to put a large part of their “screening” method on autopilot.

    That automatic screening method is the shit test.

    The most common shit test know to man is:

    Does my bum look big in this?

    Or, in a similar vein,

    I’m fat

    These question/statements have two very specific answers. One can either answer positively or negatively. As in,

    “Yeah, actually, those pants do make your bum look fat.”

    Or,

    “No, honey! Those don’t make you look fat at all.”

    The crux of the dilemma, of course — and what makes shit tests so powerful — is that the girl doing the testing already knows the answer to her question, and therefore, both answers are “wrong”.

    If a girl is asking you if you think she’s fat, or if something makes her LOOK fat, then I will guarantee you that either A) she IS fat, or B) whatever she’s wearing DOES make her look fat.

    If you respond in the positive, and affirm the reality that she already knows to be true, you are an asshole, because you are insulting her (doesn’t matter that she invited you to do so).

    On the other hand, if you DENY the reality that she is / looks fat, you are LYING TO HER FACE. She now knows you cannot be trusted; she sees that you are just trying to pacify her and make her feel good.

    The question arises: “But don’t women just want us to make them feel good, all the time?”

    Yes and no. Women want to feel good, yes; but what makes them feel good is knowing they are attached to a real man, a man with his feet firmly set in reality, a man who can lead them and protect them — a man, in short, who doesn’t pander, doesn’t fear their opinions, and generally makes his own way.

    A man, in short, who won’t lie to them to make them feel good.

    So let’s refine our definition of shit test.

    A screening question or statement the answer to which is already know, that is structured in such a way that answering truthfully will kill the asker’s attraction to you, and answering untruthfully will expose you as a liar for the rest of the conversation.

    The idea is, all of these questions TEMPT you to lie (in order to placate her). At the same time, if you resist the temptation and tell the truth, you’re not much better off – because you just responded in a logical, boring and descriptive way to a stupid rhetorical question, and now she sees you as just another boring, logical, descriptive guy who is trying to prove himself to her — instead of a guy who can lead her in conversation and in life.

    Do you see how brilliantly this structure screens guys? It truly separates the boring, normal guys who won’t be able to excite her (in conversation and certainly not in bed) from the oily line-spitting guys who are just trying to talk their way into her pants.

    Being able to sidestep the shit test is one of the most important aspects of interacting with women. Without this knowledge, you will get shot down / disqualified 95% of the time by truly “hot” women automatically, without them even thinking about it. I’ve written a lot lately about more “advanced” topics like bisexual girlfriends and threesomes, but I really think this post, and getting this one area handled, is responsible for guys getting into better interactions, more quickly, than all the advanced sex-theory I will *ever* write.

    Ultimately, we should be glad for shit tests. They help ensure that every woman we met hasn’t already been plowed up one side and down the other by 15,000 other random guys.

    And this is exactly how A&A works. Because A&A is in it’s very essence, playful flirting…and if there’s one thing most men forget how to do once they get comfortable and complacent in a LTR, they stop flirting with their women…they stop seducing them. They start acting “entitled” to sex…and when this mindset kills her attraction for them, they start to BEG and PLEAD for her to live up to her obligation as a spouse or LTR partner…which kills her attraction for you even worse.

    Than she starts to “fall out of love.” Or she wants to “find herself.” She “Is just not happy anymore! I don’t know how much longer I can do this!”

    I take issue with the word usage there. If you’re just screening, then you can do it via casual conversation and deeper discussions. There’s just seeing if there’s a connection. If you’re shit-testing, then you’re actually giving the guy “shit,” with attitude, snarkiness, and negativity. Unless all friendly conversations are de facto shit-tests?

    I realize that some hot babe at a club is going to have much more of an attitude because she has guys hitting on her constantly. But as an average, introverted girl, I can screen just fine without those things. I seriously can’t imagine just flat out saying to a guy I’d just met, “buy me a drink,” even if it’s done in a teasing way.

    What LILGRL says about being witty and playful works for her, and seems to work fabulously. But it does not suit me. The times I’ve tried sarcasm and wittiness, I got a ton of backlash and hatred. I just stick to being myself. Being playful is fun and all with people who know me well, but doing it around strangers usually backfires on me.

    I had no clue how badly I was failing shit tests, and why I was always getting into passive-aggressive conflicts. I thought shit tests were logical inquiries based on linear thinking.

    Why would you ever want to validate shit tests by trying to pass them? Shit testing is like a homeless man approaching you in the street and saying “I’ll bet you five dollars you can’t drink my diarrhea without vomiting.” You lose whether you succeed or fail, because you just drank a homeless man’s diarrhea for five dollars. It’s better to just keep on walking.

    The first time I tried A&A, when she asked me if I had a mistress, and I answered that no, I had 4 of them, and I was getting worn out trying to keep them all plus herself satisfied. I was holding my breath trying to see what her reaction would be….she giggled and said “you’re so delusional!” To which I than A&A again…”Damn straight, how else do you think I’ve stayed married to you all these years?” The conversation turned into playful teasing, ending with me spanking her ass and starting to playfully roughhouse.

    Must be nice to know that your personality is dictated entirely by someone else. You have to be Cocky/Funny PUA Clone #572341 because your wife will not respond to anything else.

    It’s a personality disorder. Why would you ask “do I look fat in this” if you are not looking for a serious answer? Because you have a constant need to create drama and tension (just like on TV).

    Yes and no. Women want to feel good, yes; but what makes them feel good is knowing they are attached to a real man, a man with his feet firmly set in reality, a man who can lead them and protect them — a man, in short, who doesn’t pander, doesn’t fear their opinions, and generally makes his own way.

    And yet answering truthfully to her question does not qualify you as being unafraid of her opinion, whereas avoiding the question does. Where is the logic in that?

    This is why TV commericals and movies and sitcoms always make fun of guys being “deathly afraid” of the “Do I look fat?” question.

    A woman who is emotionally disciplined will not need or want to ask those questions. That question in particular is easy to answer for herself. She should already know whether or not she’s fat, or whether or not a particular piece of clothing flatters her figure. OTOH, I do ask for opinions on what he’d like to see more of in my closet, and for advice on what I should wear sometimes.

    If a woman feels insecure in the relationship and starts wanting to get commitment indicators from the man, she should first look for the root causes. A man who has been giving her reasons to be so insecure might not be the kind of man she should be with in the first place. This blog is about letting pretty lies perish, right? Then women should stop lying to themselves that they can convert a man who does not truly want to be with her into a man who does.

    That is screening….shit testing. Just because you do it differently doesn’t mean it’s not the same thing.

    Personally, I prefer to think of my “screening” as having discernment. I would talk to a person and get to know that person as a casual acquaintance, and see if there is potential for more. I never assume the guy is hitting on me. I do not throw out little “tests” to see if they pass. I do not ask “leading questions” or overthink everything. My judgment is just intuitive understanding of the other person’s framework. Maybe it is the same thing according to your definition, but again it comes down to semantics.

    Look, when you talk to other women, you are not going to consciously or subconsciously attempt to screen them for relationship worthiness…unless your a lesbian.

    You wrote: My judgment is just intuitive understanding of the other person’s framework.

    This is the very essence of the shit test…whatever method you e3mploy, through conversation and observing his reactions, body language and verbal reactions to WHATEVER language you employ, you intuitively read whether or not the guy passes your particular test for compatibility.

    You’re coming across with this attitude that you are a special little snowflake, since you do not “I do not throw out little “tests” to see if they pass. I do not ask “leading questions” that you’re above this “silly notion” of “shit testing.”

    Just because a conversation is non-sexual doesn’t mean there’s no evaluation going on. Interviews, public speeches, same-sex friends hanging out, etc. But when evaluation goes on with potential sexual interest involved, that the word shit-test gets thrown about. The word would then seem to lose its meaning. Why not call it flirting if both people have positive, joking and fun outlooks? Why not call it being vulnerable if the girl is revealing something about a personal weakness?

    For example, I’ve never asked a guy about checking out other girls, about whether he’s seeing other girls, where is this going, etc. But if he doesn’t start ACTING in a certain way (saying he loves me, introducing me around, etc.) that’s the real proof.

    Words are empty, anyone can give a good answer to a question. Actions tell the truth.

    I wonder if a guy would think a girl is not into him very
    much if she never really sh*ttested him? Seems to be my personal experience… I wonder if I should start acting a little needy and insecure just to make sure the guy I’m seeing knows yes, I’m interested.

    lsb – What is verbal flirting? Does it not resemble a verbal conflict, in which the participants use words to see what kind of response they evoke in the person they are engaged with? Is not the most arousing flirtations in fact involve a male and a female striving to one up each other?

    Is this not why women almost always list “WITTY” as one of the primary traits they value in men?

    Anytime you instigate or respond to a male in flirtatious conversation, you are in fact implementing a verbal shit test.

    Is not flirting with an attractive male one of the female’s favorite past times? Have you not encountered men who were physically attractive…but absolute buzz kills because your attempts at flirting with them were met with utterly clueless, straightforward LOGIC? (Ugh…he’s got no sense of humor! = He failed your shit test.)

    It doesn’t have to be the common questions that have been cited here as examples.

    Example 2: Girl says, “If I got AIDS, would you still be with me?” Guy: “??? That came out of left field!” A shit test.

If they feel they need to coddle you by telling you you’re not fat when you are, that’s what they’ll do. If they feel they need to put you down to motivate you even if you aren’t fat, they’ll do that instead.

    trainers can comment on specific parts of you with an air of authority (sometimes phony, most trainers are actually idiots), but their financial incentive is always operative and entails you can’t trust what they say.

    perhaps modelling scouts can perform the role of IGMs (and there is no doubt significant overlap between the two sets) but (a) the standards of beauty for fashion models are weird (i find most thoroughly unattractive) and (b) it’s a lot easier to just make the acquaintance of an IGM.

    Yes, there are women out there who can certainly apply logic to override their attraction towards a man they know is bad for them…but what inspires the attraction in the first place has NOTHING TO DO WITH LOGIC.

    You have continually stated that in your mind, a quality woman is one who’s every behavior and action is dictated by logic.

    No, a quality woman just knows how to keep her emotions under control, and acts rationally. She does not, for instance, ask me if she looks fat unless she’s looking for honest input.

    This is the very essence of the shit test…whatever method you e3mploy, through conversation and observing his reactions, body language and verbal reactions to WHATEVER language you employ, you intuitively read whether or not the guy passes your particular test for compatibility.

    “There seems to be a mistaken belief among the betacracy that game may be good for pickup but it’ll do nothing at best, and sabotage at worst, your prospects for a long and healthy relationship.”

    Can’t say for certain whether that is 100% true or not, but considering that all these women you are “gaming” are your girlfriends, and they don’t ask you to marry them AND break up with you usually after 6 months to a year , its gotta make ya think

    Of holding hands and red bouquets
    And twilight trimmed in purple haze
    And laughing eyes and simple ways
    And quiet nights and gentle days with you

  219. The best thing about Seinfeld was how he just didn’t care; most of the episodes revolved around his breaking up with a girl because of X peccadillo; he just didn’t care enough to overlook it. He constantly shit tested them, and had no fear of approach. Probably why he stole a man’s wife in real life—it was just him.

    Also, there was one famous episode where a woman actually does make him start caring…..he’s there weeping, and Elaine goes, “But you don’t care about anyone!” and he responds, “I know! Its so weird!”

    For a show I never found funny, Seinfeld did teach you a lot about dating. His approaches, and Kramer’s as well, along with George’s anti-game failings, show really good game and really bad game in contrast.

    Also, witness Patrick Warburton’s “Puddy” character’s game on Elaine. She constantly breaks up with him, and his only response is, “Ok,” and promptly doesn’t give a rat’s ass. This enrages her to the point where she forces herself on him and their back together. It happened about 15 times in one episode as a joke.

She was shapely and young, but her sterno-subclavicular antecostal lipiduous processes, though restrained by a sportsbra, were bouncing in a W-shaped way, nearly giving her black eyes.

    So my question is, don’t over-endowed girls, even as lovely as that one was, HURT when running? Don’t their boobies pull and stretch, and bruise her liver with one smack after another? Won’t her lactic glands start herniating through the nipples, forming these odd-looking golfball sized mini-baloons at the tips of her boobies?

    At first she’d laugh and stuff, now she acts all hurt by it. I’ve tried rationally explaining why I’m against it (I’m against PDAs and against her attempt to use me as a ploy in public), and I’ve also told her that if she wants to kiss me she can lean over to me and do it. But she has started getting her feelings hurt over it. What’s the best way to handle this PDA shit test?

    You know, EVERYTHING doesn’t have to be a shit test.

    Women don’t know what they want, and they expect you to give it to them.

    Maybe she wants to be publicly ‘owned'(a step-down, big or little, from outdoor sex).

    Just because she hasn’t figured out how to get what she wants doesn’t mean you can’t.

  225. Before discovering game, my ability to pass “shit tests” was hit or miss and dependent on my mood. If I was feeling naturally confident and my inner game was strong, the A/A method would role off of my tongue like a natural. When i was feeling insecure or downbeat, A/A would disappear and I would be fumbling around like a beta supreme. I also suffered from what PA did. Pedestal syndrome for the “special” girl and a de facto natural game with women I didn’t care about.
    Of course I didn’t know what A/A was at the time. Still, I could almost put my finger on what the attraction triggers were. I knew that being confident, aloof and funny turned women on. My mistake, was thinking that only certain girls got turned on by all of that. A “special” girl deserved a candid, yet polite answer in any inquiry. This was the proper thing to do of course. To do anything less would be disrespectful, and by not showing proper respect to her concerns would chase her off into the hands of a more caring guy.
    We all know how that turned out. Much better now though. The “red pill” was delicious.

  245. It’s all pretty simple, really. Men desire women for sexual relations and if their personality doesn’t get in the way, they are willing to form longer term relationships. If men were to marry the people they really like to hang out with, they’d all be gay and married to their best male buddies. So there is a clear distinction here as far as romantic attraction vs. other aspects of life.

    Women, on the other hand, are looking towards finding their men as truly life-changing experiences. They invest much more of their personality in a relationship, almost to the point of absurdity. The effect is counter productive. Women are stuck pursuing the bigger and better deal, getting old and wrinkled, never realizing that they are being played like a fiddle. Now, I realize that my post could be interpreted as giving away some secret, but that ‘s not really the case. Things will remain largely as they are currently – for the foreseeable future, meaning that men who have good seduction skills will be enjoying their prowess, while others will be squirming about throwing themselves at the spoils.

  254. I don’t think Dave Alex is as TFH suggests. He’s suffering from major depression and a kind of nihilistic view on life, much of it by his own hand, and others by his upbringing, particularly the failure of his recently departed dad and too much time under his mom.

    None of this is something that cannot be fixed.

    As for why I continue to engage Dave Alex? Simple. I do it for a number of reasons, but perhaps the biggest one is because in some ways I see a bit of myself in him. Not as extreme as him of course, but we share a few things in common: we’re both Black Males; we’re both short; and we both didnt/don’t think of ourselves as having leading man looks.

    And yet despite all of this, I’ve achieved in my life. Particularly in the area of love, sex and relationships. Hands down it has been the biggest area of life lessons for me, and I will say the same will prove true for Dave Alex, one way or another.

    And I’ve lived long enough and been around long enough to know why Dave Alex really keeps coming back here. He’s fighting with himself. And losing. His inner self is fighting, hard, to get out, and the cognitive dissonance is getting so loud now that other commenters, like Bhetti, can now see it. On more than one occasion we have seen Dave Alex fly off the handle; that wasn’t by accident. Its a visceral display of the war that is raging inside him-the more he tries to suppress his humanity, the harder he tries to deny the very essence of who and what he is, the stronger the reactions from his subconscious will be. And therein lay the danger.

    Because I don’t think the mention of George Sodini is that far off. Remember, Dave Alex was roughly the same age as Sodini was when the latter had his last sexual experience. Imagine Dave Alex roughly 25 years from now-the age when Sodini lashed out in tremendous pain-it really aint that big of a stretch.

    Like Sodini, Dave Alex also has access to the Game/PUA community, and like Sodini, his worldview is grossly distorted. The big difference between the two Men however, is that Dave still has time to turn things around. He can still choose.

    There’s more than one way to skin a cat, man. Whatever happened to that checklist we talked about? Any Man can do that, and you’d be surprised how that will, in and of itself, open doors for you.

    See, you’re focused solely on the Women who DON’T want to be bothered. You have to instead focus your time on the Women who DO want to be approached.

    Now, I think I know wha you’re gonna say: the Women who might be interested in you, you’re not interested in them. A legit point, but here’s the thing: in order to attract the Women you want, you gotta give em what they want. Follow me here partner, its just good commonsense. To assume otherwise is to think like a child, and you’re not a child, right? I mean, even if you don’t actually put any of this into motion, still, it makes sense, right?

    So, doing simple things like updating your wardrobe, wearing a nice cologne, keeping the daily hygiene up, having a sense of humor, being warm and open to others, etc et al, these simple, seemingly “little” things, can really open a lot of doors to Women to you.

    One major reason why a lot of guys aren’t successful w/Women is because they appear/come off as “closed off” to Women, and that promotes them not being open to said Men in return. On the other hand, if you maintain an “open” stance, Women will be more receptive to you.

    There’s a bit more to it but I don’t wanna make this out to be a NASA project here. The bottomline is that if you can yourself more inviting to others, Women will make themselves available to you. Trust me, I get this all the time.

    In summary, ‘feminism’ (which in the 21st century, really has become rabid misandry), has hurt a very large percentage of average men, to a very deep and dehumanizing degree.

    So it is both the number of men, AND the degree to which they are unfairly brutalized.

    The feminists who still rail about how women have it bad have no idea that they presently are enjoying the very apex of their unnatural and accidental bubble of power (much like Nasdaq 5000 nine years ago), and that the crash back to natural equilibriums is going to happen in about a decade or so.

    This was the idea to which I was speaking from the link you posted:

    Not too long ago, there existed an unwritten contract between men and women in America and the West at large. Men spent their years working at shitty jobs, working their asses off every day and shortening their lifespans, obeying the laws and generally staying on the straight and narrow, and in return, they had guaranteed access to women through the institution of marriage.

    The contract between the sexes is no longer valid. The wheels had been in motion for decades prior, but the motions that destroyed the contract for good occurred in the late 60’s and 70’s

    If George Sodini had been alive as late as the 1950’s, he would likely have been able to get married in his 20’s to a reasonably attractive woman (6 or 7, possibly an 8) and have children. He would not have spent twenty years in an involuntarily celibate torture, allowing his mind to warp in all sorts of perverted ways.

    The Fifth Horseman,

    I see the articel goes on to say men don’t like being seen as a meal ticket, or slaving away at soul-less, stressful jobs… But how do you think women felt about being seen as valuable only for sex and ability to produce and reproduce children?

    I will honestly tell you that I am a feminist by the very definition of the word: complete equality and protect for women. How is that an evil thing in which to believe?

    Yes, perhaps women do have more options now, and since we are marrying (if at all) at a later stage in life, we are able to see men like Sodini for who he is, and avoid him. I think he was crazy; finding a wife early on in life and having lots of sex would not have completely changed his predisposition to insanity.

    True feminist do not want to see ANY person “screwed over”; true feminist believe in equality and see it as a necessity in society–for everyone.

    I don’t think women are choosing “bad boys” over good boys, but I do think we are choosing men who are evolving with us. Instead of railing against the change, why not be happy that women are enjoying exploring more options available to them–and support them. This doesn’t mean you have to be weak. I agree with SOME of what the author of this blogs advocates, in that men should be strong in their own individuality–this is much more attractive to women.

    However, if you think that sexual harassment laws and the Violence Against Women Act is the part of society that’s screwing you over, then the problem is much worse than I originally thought.

    As far as the divorce issues goes, I can see it from both sides. My parents went through a divorce (really tough on my mom) then my father went on to get divorced two more times after my mother (really tough on my father). These issues get complicated, but I don’t really think they correlate with feminism and equality.

    True feminist do not want to see ANY person “screwed over”; true feminist believe in equality and see it as a necessity in society–for everyone.

    Then true feminists are invisible relative to the radical misandrists. A true feminist was Sarah Palin, and her husband Todd Palin. Yet, the radical feminists hated her to a shocking degree.

    Instead of railing against the change, why not be happy that women are enjoying exploring more options available to them–and support them.

    Women want men to bear the costs of their sexual utopia. All supposedly ’empowered’ and ‘independent’ women are still heavily dependent on the state to transfer resources from men to women, in the form of alimony, child support, affirmative action, public sector jobs, and taxes on the rich (who are mostly men).

    These issues get complicated, but I don’t really think they correlate with feminism and equality.

    Oh, they do. Divorce laws are extremely rigged against the man, particularly a gainfully employed, honest man.

    Why should the woman be entitled to alimony if SHE chooses divorce (which the woman does in 90% of the cases). Why should the man have to pay her if SHE cheated?

    Why are women opposed to pre-nups? Why are a fair percentage of men now avoiding marriage, or marrying foreign women only?

    I would tend to agree with xsplat regarding DA.

    What you write might certainly be helpful to others, if they are reading it. But in that case, if you had your own blog where your writings would be more visible (and more easily referred back to months later), you would be able to help a lot more people, with people seeking guidance would actually gravitate there.

    If you write something valuable, it is not just valuable today, but could be valuable 90 days from now too. Over here, it is virtually impossible to refer back to a great posting, as there is no way to search the ‘Obsidian archives’.

    So helping others beyond DA would be better served with a blog containing the same commentary.

    I never had delusions about women. I never wanted to make nice, protect them or care about them if they did not reciprocate the favor.

    Social systems that do not treat individuals well cannot expect them to keep playing nice. The difference between you and me is that I am not willing to believe in something whose existence cannot be verified.

    Once society starts mistreating more than a small minority of it’s individuals, it is destined for collapse. However many like to think that their society is special.

    As an example- The problem with ‘might makes right’ is that you might one day loose ‘might’ and then the person holding the ‘might’ will sodomize you with it.

    Whites in the US have long treated blacks as subhumans and behaved as if ‘might makes right’. when any white person tells me that they are afraid of blacks, I often ask them about how we reached here.

    I think most men don’t realize that a girl who is too nice, too accepting, and too unselfishly loving sets off the “desperate” or “annoying and needy” sensors. Some guys on this blog here boil everything down to a how a girl looks, but hello… when there are millions of hot and sexy women why would a guy stay with a boring girl when he can just leave and find another hot one?

    Guys love to “win” at flag football, in office politics, etc. and I think they need to feel they “win” with women too.

    I totally agree with you chick! I’ve been told I try too hard by men in my life (alphas). I had to look at this long and hard. Truthfully I don’t feel desperate, have lots of opportunities to date. So if its not desperation what is it? I came to the conclusion that my naturally easy going, people pleasing ways (I get pleasure out if it, not passive aggressive) came off as too easy to please. They missed the challenge. I was in many ways too easy, and I’m not meaning that in the sexual sense, although heck that too. It truly takes quite a few factors which aren’t easily realized in men I meet for me to even consider a relationship (hypergamy at work) so when I do, ya I’m ready to go for it. This “I’ll jump right in” quality I think is too intense and I have to learn a little girl game.

    I know you guys say its all about looks and sex. I agree. I’m no slump in either category yet I feel men lose interest when they realize I’ve been fairly easily conquered time to move on. This is what I came to realize/understand. So fellas does anything I above ring true? Any advice for the next time I get the feeling a relationship has real potential? Ways to play it? (besides looking my absolute classy yet sexy best).

    I can respect where you’re coming from and would never judge you for the way in which you conduct your life. As I’ve said several times in the forum, not only do I think that prostitution/escorting should be made fully legal, but that so long as a Man and a Woman are of legal age of consent and are in mutual agreement of their own free will, I’m completely cool w/whatever arrangement they’ve come up with.

    That said, and while I see where you’re coming from wrt Sodini and the wider implications of Feminism etc, for me it aint about “them”, ie Women, its about me, as a Man. Being an asshole aint me, Man. Never has been, and I suspect, never will be.

    But that doesn’t mean that I can’t or won’t stand up for myself. And people who try to take my kindness for weakness often live to regret it.

    So, I basically avoid the Women who I think would in some way be bad for me. And it’s really not as hard as it may sound. The ugly truth is that for every asshole guy walking around, there’s at least one corresponding bitchy over-entitled gal out there, too, and I simply decided, long ago, that I won’t tolerate that in my personal space, in my mind, in my life. Period.

    And I don’t have to be mean or ugly in going about it, either. In fact, I’ve found that being respectful and adopting a “Silence is Golden” stance is far and away more “lethal” to a Woman’s psyche than all the dramatic stuff a goodly number of asshole douche types do.

    But overall, I’m basically a smooth, cool, laidback, gentlemanly dude. I like Women, and I enjoy their company, both sexual and nonsexual. Nothing wrong with that, right?

    Another reason why I don’t get weary in reaching out to Dave Alex is because if it’s one thing I’ve learned in my own personal journey of sorts, wrt Game and just life in our age, its that Men have to reach out to each other and help other. For all the many things we can say about the ills of Feminism-and in my view there are quite a few-the bottomline is that Women get things done for each other. They band together and help each other out. Men need to learn how to do this.

    That’s why I thought what The Urban Scientist over at Psychology Today said was so very profound about the Seduction Community, and in so many ways he’s right, its virtually unprecendented. And again, for all the problems Feminism may have wrought in our time, the fact remains, that in the end, Women can’t nor should help boys grow into Men. That’s our job.

    I am well aware that Dave Alex has his issues, and the very fact that he keeps coming here says to me that deep down, he sees something here that is of value to him. In my faith tradition, we are called to assist others. Chairty is not contingent on the acts of the recievers, or what their intentions are, etc. The bottomline is he’s here and I for one wouldn’t be a Man if I simply turned by back on him like the stranger on the road to Jericho.

    So, maybe he’s playing me, like he may be playing errbody else here; if so, so be it. As I understand it, Dave’s a somewhat religious Man, and if that’s true, then he’ll have to account for his actions when his time comes. But for me, I’m not gonna give up on Dave Alex. Doing so would be a diss to St. Jude.

  330. I don’t think women are choosing “bad boys” over good boys, but I do think we are choosing men who are evolving with us.

    @anon for now —

    More detail on this later, but for now I’d just like to say that this, in particular, is nonsense. If it were true, then Game would not work, and believe me, Game *does* work.

    And the women who have chosen so-called “evolved” men are getting bored to death with them. I’d recommend perusing an article by Sandra Tsing Loh in last month’s Atlantic. Loh describes how she and her friends were all bored to tears with their “evolved” husbands, whom they admitted were fantastic around the house and with the kids. Why? The attraction died, that’s why, and with it the sex died. The women she describes in her article wish their husbands were more like men of yore in chasing their secretaries and so on, and muse wistfully about how women in Scandinavia are increasingly preferring Muslim immigrant men to Scandinavian men because the former are more traditionally masculine. I’m not making this up — go read the article. It’s a real eye-opener about what women *really* feel about living with “evolved men” 15-20 years down the pike.

    Another resource to peruse is the recently published and extremely well-written book by Cristina Nehring called “A Vindication of Love”, in which she bemoans the stable love that evolved “equalist” relationships contain and pines for wild, passionate, unequal, uncontrolled love and passion.

    So much for women preferring “evolved” men. I think some women think this way when they are in their 20s and filled with feminist ideology. Older women, like Loh and her friends and Nehring, have experienced these equalist relationships with “evolved” men and now are being honest with themselves and everyone else: they were bored to death with these relationships because they left them with many unruly yet unmet needs.

    Hence the success of Game.

    I agree w/Nova in that its so important to try and maintain that sexual attraction spark w/your Woman; its a simple, though not always easy, matter of constantly seducing her. They can’t help it. Women long to be seduced, that’s just the way it is, and Men would be wise to learn this and learn it quick.

    “As I was trying to explain to LilGrl the other day, please don’t think that you too can do what he’s talking about, trust me, most guys will NOT find that cute. In fact it will turn most of em off.”

    Completely agree with you, girls can’t act like guys in terms of “Game” because feminine and masculine ideals are different.

    But as aoefe and I were talking about, it seems like there is too much of a good thing, so to speak, if a girl is overly nice and caring it ALSO seems like a turnoff.

    There’s a point between sweetness/caringness/softness and sauciness/snarkiness/bitchiness/meanness, that is probably the ideal. I think that point is probably wayyyy closer to sweetness/softness, but a girl who after meeting a guy once is like “yes master” to everything he says, and doting on him like he’s the second coming of Christ will probably tire out most guys eventually.

    That’s all I was getting at.

  340. @Anon for now:
    I will honestly tell you that I am a feminist by the very definition of the word: complete equality and protect for women. How is that an evil thing in which to believe?

    ———-
    Evil and false. Women are inferior to men. Gender equality is a pipe dream. When you try to enforce a falsehood and in the process upset the natural order of things, bad things happen.

    Feminism has never been about ‘gender equality’. That was a noble sounding excuse, not unlike ‘switch off lights and save the planet’ or ‘go vegan and save the animals’. The real goals were matriarchy and empowerment of women at the expense of men. You get Title IX, affirmative action, VAWA and similar bullshit.

    There is nothing inherently good in feminism, because its foundation was a pack of lies. And there is no ‘good’ or ‘moderate’ or ‘rational’ feminist in contrast to the more infamous bra-burning, Harriet Harman screeching cunts. All feminists are of the same corrupt source.

    Ironically, feminism has liberated men indirectly. Men who have gone their own way, avoided marriage will remain unscathed. In the good old days of our parents/grandparents, when marriage 1.0 lasted as long as the marital vows, most people had to get married to get laid, and even paid sex was hush-hush and largely frowned upon.

    Now, marrriage 2.0 which lasts a few years and does nothing but screw men over, has nothing to offer men. Apply a little game and you can bed a decent number of women, including someone else’s wife. Not married, not legally stuck to a fast expiring piece of meat for the rest of your life, and yet still can have a vibrant sex life. Fantastico.

    Thank Gloria Steinem and the hordes of feminism worshipping, gender equality seeking useful idiots, both male and female.

From what I read of Style in The Game, he wouldn’t be what I consider an “asshole” but a lot closer to a refined gent.

    True, but by “evolved” I didn’t mean anything other than men who are diehard equalists. I didn’t mean to say “women only like assholes”, but that this “evolved/equalist” stuff doesn’t really work, because women, in the end, do not like it.

    I think what you, Aoefe and perhaps other ladies really mean is, we basically lack a Courting process nowawdays. Errthing happens so fast, and that’s all well and good for those who want “same night lays” and so on. To each his, or her, own.

    But for those of us who enjoy a more relaxed pace, and desire a bit something more longer lasting, courting is very important, and here is where it really helps Women actually. Because that way, you’re not pressured to “put on a performance” of one kind or anything. One way or another. You can take your time w/the prospective suitor, and *he* isn’t pressured to make a move all in one day/night either.

    Personally, I don’t do Women I don’t court for some time. Other guys here may have a different view, God bless em all. But that’s not me. I enjoy the process, and have a deep and profound respect for it. And perhaps explains why most of my relationships lasts longer, and has more sexual passion, than many people’s marriages.

  347. Oops to finish – figuring out that balance point is the super-duper tricky part, and what I (and I think aeofe if I understood her intentions) were trying to understand better.

    Most male commenters here agreed that every single woman sh*ttests. Well what if you all were to do a quick mental exercise… imagine a woman who never sh*ttested you ever:

    – When you come over to approach her, she brightens up with a big smile, dotes on your every word, laughs at your every joke, and smiles at your negs. and agrees with them
    – When you ask her out, she says yes with glee and no issues
    – When you call, she answers. She calls you the next day just “because she felt like talking to you, you’re soooo coool” and “to find out what your favorite stuff is”. She calls you several more times that week
    – When you ask to go back to her place on the first date, she says OK
    – When you ask to do all sorts of freaky things with her on that first date, she says OK and does all of them with no resistance whatsoever
    – In the morning, she makes a meal of all of your favorite breakfast items. She offers to drive you home, and also asks if she should bring you some delicious homemade lunch that week. She tells you that she loves you
    – She calls you all the time just because she wants to “hear your voice” and because “she loves you and is sooo lucky to have you”
    – She comes to your work to drop off a gift and also give you a quickie of whatever freaky thing you like all the time
    – When you go out again, you openly flirt with other girls and she doesn’t do anything and just watches, and waits for a command
    – When you tell her that you’re seeing many women and never want to get married, she smiles and says “you’re so smart” like she says to everything that comes out of your mouth
    – When you make a casual remark about her junk in the trunk, she becomes anorexic until you actually have to tell her to eat. And then she eats a lot and then you have to tell her to control.
    – When she gets pregnant accidentally, you tell her to abort the child and she says “OK!” with a chipper smile as usual
    – You tell her you’re going to visit some prostitutes in Amsterdam, that you are cheating with your best friend’s wife, and that you are addicted to cocaine. She just smiles and listens politely and never ever questions you about those things
    – It’s 5 years later, somehow you still have her around. She’s never, ever brought up anything about where you guys stand in terms of your relationship, or about having kids, or anything. All of her friends are married, and have kids, but she’s stuck by you and doesn’t question what you guys have at all

    Key gender difference, LSB: men do not “seek excitement” in relationships. Men get bored, yes, but not because a woman is too compliant, but because of the normal boredom that sets in due to complacency, and the desire for other women.

    “The Rules” approach gets some men to pursue women for longer, that’s true — it’s called stringing along men, and some men are happy to be strung along for a while if the woman doing the stringing is someone they desire. If she doesn’t string along, things may progress faster, and he may leave quickly — not because he is “bored without a challenge”, but because he hasn’t been strung along. Stringing along is a way to keep a man’s focus on you, and away from other women, and only really works if he already wants you a lot.

    The boredom thing for men is not based on an overly-compliant woman, but rather on the typical development of sexual boredom for one woman and the desire for sex with another. Men aren’t looking for excitement and pushback in relationships, that is what women are looking for. Women shit test, however, and it’s something men need to learn to deal with, because it’s a part of how women are.

  364. PA,
    No doubt and no surprise I’m in agreement w/you, and have always questioned the premise on which Feminism rests; I’ve always sad that the biggest losers of Feminism will not be Men. They will be Women. The Women who aren’t in the top echelons of society. The Women who weren’t born Hot. The Women who just aged out of their most sexiest and reproductive years. The Women who were pumped and dumped over and over again.

    These are just a quick glance of the true losers of Feminism, PA. And any Woman who by now doesn’t see that only lends more creedance to the view, that they aren’t very good at making longterm projections.

    By the way, PA, given your ethnic and cultural heritage, I’m very curious-have you ever seen The Wire? As you may know I’ve mentioned it several times here in the forum. But my reason for asking you is because its second season focuses on the Polish part of Baltimore, who makeup the organized labor class on the docks. Of all the five seasons The Wire aired, the second season, which focused almost entirely on White ethnics, was my hands down fave. It was poignant in the same way On The Waterfront was poignant, with acting of the caliber that Marlon Brando himself would have enjoyed.

    Anyway, just wanted to get your thoughts.

    By the way, in case either Doug or Nova is listening: one of the characters, McNulty, is going through a divorce from his wife. They have two sons, and the reasons for thebreakup was due in large part to McNulty’s tomcatting and drinking.

    Anyway, get this, he’s already paying TWENTYFOUR GRAND a year in child support, and the soon to be ex has a freaking nerve to hit him up for an additional 12K in alimony-so, let’s add it all up, the Man would have to cough up THIRTYSIX GRAND(!!!) a year, at least till the kids turned 18. And they were just going into their teenaged years at that point, meaning, by my guess, he had at least what, five, six years of that kind of payout-on a cop’s salary?!?

Google’s crawlers may not have archived stuff that day yet, or maybe it takes two days but it doesn’t take long.

    Note on some blogs comments won’t be searched. They’re closed off to google. Not this one’s though. E.g. you can’t search comments at GNXP. Well they use a different site for their comments.

    Google’s other specific searches such as image search and blog search or book search are also readily available from the drop down other otherise from the toolbar, as is current news search. You can also hide/collapse the toolbar when not using it if you want more screen real estate. Sorry if this is too elementary.

    You do make The Wire sound like a solid show and I might eventually check it out.

    I’ve seen 5-7 episodes from 2-3 seasons.

    It is a solid show and it is well written.

    It’s also unremittingly depressing.

    It’s free of a lot of bullshiite white washing, but has it’s own kinds of unrealism.

    Steve Sailer has an interesting though pretty hard review of the whole series, as an overview of it’s weltanschang up at Taki’s Place, linked from his site. It’s only a few weeks old. I’d say he’s a bit too dismissive. That is I think he’s critique is broadly right but that the show lets a whole lot more truth come through than you might get the feeling it did from reading the review.

    For instance, recalling an episode from the schools season, you could approach it with a view that it’s all the social/cultural environment these kids were raised in or not much raised, or that it was heavily their heredity but the environment was making it worse and little to make it better. Either would work, though naturally I think the later works better. In either case the show’s greatest strength is to show how pervasively the motivations get all messed up by real world forces, even when say a hardened but reasonably idealistic would be teacher joins the battle to raise these kids up through education.

    I kept thinking. Yeah, well why is it that dirt poor illiterate chinese kids don’t remotely have these problems even when in NY they sometimes start out in the same, or quickly their parents see to it, neighboring but equally poor schools?

  372. Doug,
    Yup, I read both Sailer’s Taki’s Mag Wire article, and read the comments about the same on his blog, AND read Jeopardy Green Room’s analysis as well, and I have to say that both are way off the mark.

    I’ll just take up a few quick points.

    For starters, both Sailer and JGR complain that Simon is basically serving up warmed over Liberal boilerplate, suggesting that every cornerboy has a chess grandmaster lurking inside, etc.

    First off, that’s bullshit-just about EVERY major Black character from the streets ends up DEAD: Omar, Wallace, D’Angelo, Stringer Bell, Prop Joe and his sellout traitor of a nephew Cheese, Snoop, Fruit and his killer Lex, and untold numbers of other characters-and ALL of them at the hands of other Blacks.

    The Wire clearly showed how dumb many Blacks were, and how even the putatively smart ones, like Stringer Bell or even Bubbles, were often in over their heads and led astray by their emotions. Heck, that’s how Omar met his end, a usually highly intelligent, patient and diligent theif and stickup Man. He let his personal shit get in the way, and that led to his untimely and undiginified demise, at the hands of a kid, Little Kenard.

    Trust me, The Wire does NOT make Black folk on the whole look good, in fact I would say that Simon has got some serious balls for showing innercity Baltimore for the Fallujah/Mogadishu-in-America that it really is.

    And, unlike critics like Sailer, who complain that Blacks ain’t shown to be dumb enough, etc, I have yet to run accross a Black person who’s watched The Wire complain about its portrayal of Black folk. In fact, I know quite a few Black people from B-More, and they LOVED IT, because they said what The Wire showed was real, even while it as a fictional series.

    Funny, that.

    Second, The Wire dealt w/a host of themes, like I said, Season Two took up the death of B-More’s organized labor unions, mostly ethnic White, in this case Polish. As I said to PA earlier, it is my fave all-around season of The Wire, precisely because it shows how good people got really screwed every way, coming and going. Frank Sobotka was a good Man who did everything he could to save his union, to no avail. In the end, he joined the Black dead of B-More, the only difference was he was White and so was his killers.

    The Wire is, as you rightly point out Doug, a depressing show. There are few if any brightspots. And would it surprise you to learn that I actually agreed w/Bunny Colvin’s idea, both of erecting Hamsterdam, and of tracking the Corner Kids? Don’t look now, but quite a few Black folk agree with me on both counts.

    At any rate, The Wire does something that tv, cable or network, heck even the big screen, can’t and won’t do, and that’s be brutally honest about the state of our times. The Game, is still the Game, as Slim Charles says; it’s just got more fierce.

    David Alexander’s George Sodini’s problems are not a lack of chicks. Their misery stems not from lack of game but from been a beta male. After all beta means second rate, second-class, or mediocre. Success is grand, failure has a glory all of its own, but mediocrity is just a soul-sucking existence.

    Much of game seems geared towards teaching beta males to act alpha. The problem is that acting alpha does not make a man alpha, anymore than starring in Air Force One made Harrison Ford president of the United States. Alpha males are successful because actually having alpha attributes leads to success.

    Beta males are beta males because they lack many or all of the attributes of an alpha males, namely: dominance, extraversion, aggression, competitiveness, and drive (sexual and/or achievement). A beta male that scores a hot chick is still a beta male in the same way that, despite his star turn in Air Force One, Harrison Ford is still a 60-something actor.

    I dropped out of posting here because I realized that lack of game was not my problem (all things considered I have done OK with women). My problem was that I was a beta male. I did not lack “game”, I lacked extraversion, dominance, aggression, etc. My immediate mission is not to score hot chicks but to fix myself. For many miss-trained alphas “game” can be a great tool, for beta males it is nothing more than a thin coat of paint on a rotting fence. Alpha males can slap on the paint, beta males need to fix the fence.

    David, working on your alphaness does not have to be about scoring chicks. The alpha male is the kind of guy that can afford to travel first class on Acela, can afford to support his family, can afford to drive a Nissan GT-R. A more alpha you would be in a higher paying, more secure job with higher status. A more alpha you could provide leadership and stability to your family.

    Remember: the alpha male can get away with everything while the beta male gets away with nothing. This means an alpha you can still railfan (alpha men do what they want), or jack-off to porn (alpha man does not need a woman). An alpha you may well attract the kind of women you prefer but an alpha you can still ignore them (if they seem like golddiggers). I find the PUA notch-count version of alphaness to be a very limited view. Alpha males will attract more females but that should not be his only mission (indeed women should be nothing more than a delightful distraction).

    I will offer no advice on what exactly you should do. I am not even sure if a beta into alpha transition is possible (I think there is a lot of nature, but their might be enough nurture to make it possible). In any case, what you need is probably different from what I need, and I do not even have a clear plan for myself yet. I do however know what I need to achieve and that is a good start.

Pretty obvious they wanted to hate the show as pro-black lib propaganda before they even watched it.

    Anyway, get this, he’s already paying TWENTYFOUR GRAND a year in child support, and the soon to be ex has a freaking nerve to hit him up for an additional 12K in alimony-so, let’s add it all up, the Man would have to cough up THIRTYSIX GRAND(!!!) a year, at least till the kids turned 18. And they were just going into their teenaged years at that point, meaning, by my guess, he had at least what, five, six years of that kind of payout-on a cop’s salary?!?

    The things I’ve been saying about this Obsidian have not been exaggerated. Without alimony two kids of child support=alimony take 40-52% of a wife’s

    That’s EXACTLY how my disillusionment came about. That’s what motivated to start to become not just irritated by overbroad sexual harassment law without taking it too seriously, and thinking female affirmative action was also wrong but maybe not so horrible, to starting to take a thorough alarmed look. Note I came off comparatively easily in my no kids divorce. However I learned as much as I could about how bad it could have been.

    I won’t say the reason I’ve never had kids since is because of what I’ve learned. There’ve been other larger factors. I’ve never had a burning desire to. Essentially the right woman would always have had to seduce me into it against great reluctance on my part especially to do it YET, with that ever receding. However, it’s been a huge factor.

    Yes, I idenitified w/Frank Sobotka preicsely because of his unselfish ways and his mission to save his union, as well as the fact that I too am a Union card holder, and in that regard all of us Blue Collar guys are a kind of Band of Brothers. It wasn’t about race in that regard, then, but more about universal themese that I could deeply relate to.

    I also liked Frank because of the love he had for his wayward son, even while he failed him. The scene in which we see Frank’s final conversation w/his son Ziggy, in the lockup for gunning down “Double G”, is in my view on a par w/Brando’s “I coulda been a contender” scene from On The Waterfront.

    The White Slavery angle, which you speak to briefly above, was also very poignant and painful for me to watch, for obvious reasons, being a descendant of slaves myself.

    I just want to reiterate the basic point that in my view, The Wire doesn’t glorify, in any way, the players from B-More’s streets; if anything, it shows the viewer, simply and w/o much fanfare, what the highly likely and predictable outcome of the lives of so many of these players, ultimately turns out.

    If The Wire is depressing, it’s because it has the balls to hold up a mirror to ourselves as Americans. At least that’s how I see it.

    I will conceive that Sailer’s review of the Wire wasn’t one of his better products, but it wasn’t an entirely simplistic hatchet job either. Further taking what you say as fact that the majority of the drug dealers portrayed are anti intelletual and would have no aspirations to Ivy league education if things were but a little different does not negate Sailer’s point about the drive of Simon the show’s creator to find nice Jewish boy analogues who would rise up just like Jewish boys would, or a few of them like Simon, if they but could.

Well for the anthropology of course, unless it’s actually going to give us great sex or acting, which it does not, though it’s apparently not terrible in the later, depending upon what one thinks she should have been conveying.

    But you see that gets us right back to the anthropology. What is that girl friend experience high end call girl world like, from both sides of the divide? the guy’s side. But also what we REALLY want to know, right, is what’s it like from her’s, assuming her clients or some of them aren’t so bad as men. Just the nature of the interaction is what it is — or is it, or what is it, or does it have to be?

    So who then to review? Well of course. An elite college educated, highly intelligent, into her work, being doing it for awhile but not burned out and still rather enjoying it overall, high end call girl who actually DOES PROVIDE the girl friend experience services.

    Sailer, in his review of Simon and the Wire, never implied that the show ignored the fact that the grand majority of (drug dealing/using) blacks die at the hands of other blacks. He was saying how ridiculous it was to imply that inside each of them was some dormant chess-master waiting to come out. And how unrealistic (for a very realistic show) it was to show a drug kingpin, regardless of how smart he may have been, taking economics courses at the local community college to further his drug dealing enterprise.

    Granted, I don’t totally agree with Sailers entire review, but you definitely were reading something into it.

  392. [Reposted to fix italics, I hope]

    Obsidean, David Alexander

    David Alexander’s George Sodini’s problems are not a lack of chicks. Their misery stems not from lack of game but from been a beta male. After all beta means second rate, second-class, or mediocre. Success is grand, failure has a glory all of its own, but mediocrity is just a soul-sucking existence.

    Much of game seems geared towards teaching beta males to act alpha. The problem is that acting alpha does not make a man alpha, anymore than starring in Air Force One made Harrison Ford president of the United States. Alpha males are successful because actually having alpha attributes leads to success.

    Beta males are beta males because they lack many or all of the attributes of an alpha males, namely: dominance, extraversion, aggression, competitiveness, and drive (sexual and/or achievement). A beta male that scores a hot chick is still a beta male in the same way that, despite his star turn in Air Force One, Harrison Ford is still a 60-something actor.

    I dropped out of posting here because I realized that lack of game was not my problem (all things considered I have done OK with women). My problem was that I was a beta male. I did not lack “game,” I lacked extraversion, dominance, aggression, etc. My immediate mission is not to score hot chicks but to fix myself. For many miss-trained alphas “game” can be a great tool, for beta males it is nothing more than a thin coat of paint on a rotting fence. Alpha males can slap on the paint, beta males need to fix the fence.

    David, working on your alphaness does not have to be about scoring chicks. The alpha male is the kind of guy that can afford to travel first class on Acela, can afford to support his family, can afford to drive a Nissan GT-R. A more alpha you would be in a higher paying, more secure job with higher status. A more alpha you could provide leadership and stability to your family.

    Remember: the alpha male can get away with everything while the beta male gets away with nothing. This means an alpha you can still railfan (alpha men do what they want), or jack-off to porn (alpha man does not need a woman). An alpha you may well attract the kind of women you prefer but an alpha you can still ignore them (if they seem like golddiggers).

    As I’ve said earlier, I’ve got some other irons in the fire that I’m dealing with and is taking up most of my time these days. Plus being on the move, etc et al, it’s just not a good time to get started.

    Hopefully, if all goes well, I’m aiming to get things up and running this Fall, can’t specify it more than that. Somewhere between Labor Day and the end of the year, again, hopefully.

    It all depends how things shake themselves out between now and say, end of next month. So we’ll see.

    Anyway, in case Doug’s reading along, the problem I have w/Sailer and JGR isn’t that they have their own biases, but that they, one, don’t sound too terribly familiar w/The Wire, meaning, that they didn’t sound like they watched much of the series, and two, yea, they did come off like they allowed their own preconceived notions of SWPL folk to get in the way of basic facts. The point was and is, that Simon portrayed B-More in a very realistic light, and he was an equal opportunity offender, if anything. The one major Jewish character, criminal lawyer Maury Levy, was hardly an angelic figure, and neither were the vast majority of B-More’s Black political class, notably Clay Davis.

    My problem w/Sailer and JGR, is that they can’t get past their ideological blinders to simply watch the show and take it from there, on its face. And much of what they say about the show is utterly false.

    For example, the idea of The Wire portraying its Black criminals as some kind of Noble Negroes? In I think, Season Three, Bunk gives Omar an earful about just how disgusted he is with his ilk.

    Another? This idea that inside err corner boy, is a Bobby Fischer, yearning to get out? LOL! Like Joe said, the only such character we hear speaking of chess at all was D’Angelo Barksdale, and he hardly a chess champion, he just talking about the rules of the game, and Simon uses that scene to illustrate a larger commentary on the nature of unbounded capitalism, and how it can and will eat you alive. After nearly a decade of Wall St hijinx, does anyone honestly disagree w/that basic premise? And don’t get it twisted, I’m as “free market” as they come, and even I see that the system is broken.

    Third, The Wire makes a powerful argument, both for the legalization of drugs, and for the tracking of wayward, difficult and potentially violent students. Last time I heard, hardcore Liberals DO NOT advocate for such things.
    Again, I have no problem w/being a passionate partisan. What I do have a problem with is folk who won’t get out of the way of their own ideological freight trains, and let the basic facts speak for themselves.

    Trust me, The Wire does NOT make Black folk on the whole look good, in fact I would say that Simon has got some serious balls for showing innercity Baltimore for the Fallujah/Mogadishu-in-America that it really is.

    In the 5-7 episodes that I saw that came through to me, yes. I tried somewhat to convey that. Unlike you who I gather has seen the whole massive thing in it’s entirety I haven’t seen enough to feel comfortable being that definitive or bold, but yes, that’s what I meant when I said the series doesn’t whitewash things, as most even “gritty” portrayals of the inner city do.

    (btw One complaint I have though is that the series seemed almost devoid of sex. There were references but precious little was shown in the five or seven I say. One episode showed some. If it’s supposed to be so gritty and R rated why so little orgiastic wild stuff protrayed? I’m not trying to impose my imagination nor what I’ve read elsewhere about how it sometimes goes down but come on even the movie American Gangster, is that what it was called, about the black driver for a black minor Harlem crime boss who took over his minii empire against mob efforts to move in instead, make it vastly bigger on the strength of US military shipments of Junk from Vietnam or really then Burma (Myanmar – Maurice, check that too K?) Anyway that even had more, realistically it seemed. Maybe I just saw the wrong episodes.

    There’s the “intimate kiss”, and the “casual kiss”. The difference is tremendous.

    The latter is just basic comfort, like the first makeout you get with a girl at a club or bar. It’s nothing more than a green light to continue the seduction.

    The former is something she can only do if she’s smitten with you, and, yes, is probably more intimate than just about any other sex act.

    I disagree with your conclusions about the endgame of feminism. You sound very sure of yourself, but I don’t find your arguments logical. You have no obligation to provide me with convincing statistics, but until I see the trends for myself I’m going to take your proclamations with many grains of salt..

    Personally, since I believe men and women in general want different things have have different interests (such has it ever been, and ever will be) I have no investment in 50% percentages in careers or stay-at-home parenting.
    As long as a woman can be a welder, or whatever else (with the exceptions of jobs that rely on size, strength, or physical performance, where women cannot compete with men), if she wants to, I am happy with the situation. We can right now, so it’s not really an issue for me. Most of us would hate being welders.

    I would like to see more female politicians, but it’s probably not going to happen. Politics is all about being an alpha.

    I care very much about the plight of all human beings. And I think as much as well all like to complain here in America, things in general are pretty good, for men and women.

    More matrifocal areas of society do exist – usually in places where lack of resources/jobs means young men have no incentive to try to ‘settle down’ and provide for wife/kids. Rarely as the norm in any larger society. Beyond the ‘ghetto’ you are so fond of linking to this argument (BTW, I live right outside Philadelphia, used to make my living waitressing, and have known a lot of single moms with multiple kids – sometimes from all different dads, many of whom are in prison or deadbeat – and they are doing okay as a whole, because they tend to have much more close-knit families and groups of friends than the nuclear families who are the majority out here in the burbs. It’s not easy to do it without a husband figure, but they manage and the ‘ghetto’ kids I know are nice well-adjusted kids – of course I am not friendly with any crack addicts moms), the Mosuo of China are one of the few societies I can think of with most of the attributes you describe above. Female ownership of family names, house and most property, the concept of ‘walking husbands’ (men stay the night and they usually have a regular partner, but not traditional marriage), and not knowing who is the biological father in some cases. However, men are still very much invested in their communities and there are low rates of crime. Men control politics and trade. Uncles live within the family home and are father figures to their sister’s kids.

    Being accessible w/a minimum of snark, etc et al, is the best way to go.

    Okay, re: girlGame or lack thereof —

    I see what you’re saying — sure, girls cannot emulate all the techniques of boyGame and expect SRS results, as, after all, boyGame is tailored to the needs/wants of women. However, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t some aspects of boyGame (in fact, there are quite a few), that are just basic flirtation techniques, labeled.

    To say that there is no such thing as girlGame is, well, not exactly correct. True, there isn’t a comprehensive system that will vastly improve a girl’s chances of obtaining a quality partner. As we know, people cannot drastically improve their looks, for the most part, short of plastic surgery. And, since guys are mostly visual creatures, this limits a girl’s options (but not by as much as it would limit, say, a guy’s). BUT…as LSB pointed out above…there is a certain amount of “game” that a woman must know in order to be viewed as a long-term partner.

    Like, the ability to flirt. Sure, it may seem like you never encounter women who can’t flirt (or maybe you do, who knows, but unless you’re gaming silicon valley engineers, it’s doubtful), so it may seem like flirting skills are not really a big deal. But…yeah. Wrong.

    Yes I did read your long retort to my comment to Joe and you did quite a good job of it.

    I suspect from as much of the show as I’ve seen that what you say in that long comment is quite accurate. I saw enough to see the back political class and the Jewish defense lawyer portrayed as you describe. Maybe I’ve seen ten episodes in all, I don’t know. Probably more like.

    I’m suspect you’re right that Sailer hasn’t seen much more than I have. As I say it’s not one of his better efforts. His movie reviews in general are not, although most are more interesting than this one was. Most don’t really endeavor to review the film as a work of art or not or don’t much, but take on it’s messages and anthropology. Which I consider valid for some types of films as one kind of input on them. But I’m prepared to agree that he failed in that effort on the Wire Obsidian.

    However he’s the thing. You keep evangelizing people to watch it. That’s fine, but what you really want is for them to wathch the whole damn thing or anyway huge parts of it. That’s a lot to ask given how depressing it is and how really so far as I’ve seen or heard anyone say including you, the show offers no solutions whatsoever. Not even really a glimmer. It’s valuable to show failed ones as failed and unworkable. but if nothing works, why care. Why not just seal the place off as much as possible? Encourage the better to get physically out and away as the only solution and don’t divert too many resources to a hopeless cause.

    Or do you have a solution?

Men are accused of emotional abuse in relationships in which the woman is constantly emotionally abusing her husband, and he just calls it incessant nagging. But out society is primed to hear the woman and put the man’s complaints down to “not being secure enough to handle a strong, independent woman”. “Well grow up buddy, it’s an new world.” As well no matter how many times she may have yelled on tiptoes red faced in his face, and slapped him as hard as she could, for many divorcing women (all?) if he ever even once mildly front handed slapped her at all without any bruising whatsoever that will be ascribed to “he…..EVEN………..PHYSICALLY!!!! ………..A…..A……ABUSED ……….me!!!!!! To gasps of horror and utter condemnation, without any questioning of her whatsoever it’s so unthinkable.

    All this is so utterly unbalanced and one sided that it’s thoroughly disgusting.

    Bonnie I’m by H’s defnitions an alpha. I’ve been with girls in the tripple digits. I’m older than your bf. In fact I’m at the tail end of the boomer generation. I make a LOT of money. I’m living very happily with a much younger woman. I’m not personally bitter, though a long ago divorce without children is what woke me up to how much worse it could have been for me if I’d had them and what it’s like for many, many divorced men, or men facing the fear of what their wives can do. Alimony incredibly is now coming back in “leading” states worse than EVER under feminist lobbying pressure and mens it seems innate disinclination to lobby as a whole for men’s rights against women. Though it’s hard to tell because the fact is the media simply will not cover these issues from divorced mens’ perspectives.

    I thought the show was great. And, for any faults it may have had, it was willing to show how fucked places like East and West Baltimore are.

    I think that Sailer had an opinion of Simon and let it run wild when he saw a few “mistakes” on the show. Also, he must be sick of hearing from fanboys how great the show is. Fanboys ARE annoying, but even a broken clock is right twice a day.

    Still, you never addressed the point I made: Sailer never implied that the show ignored black on black violence. He simply pointed out the ridiculousness of viewing unrepentant drug dealers as potential chess-masters and literature lovers.

  418. Women generally lack a sense of justice, hence their enormous lying during the divorce process. Men lie too, but not as frequently, or as well, in my (considerable) experience with all this stuff. Especially if kids are involved, the men are usually so traumatized by it all, particularly the loss of their children, that they are in a state of shock for a while. They have trouble keeping the actual facts straight.

    I have seen men without children greet divorce with glee; I have never seen fathers look happy, even when the divorce goes pretty well for them (ie they aren’t totally fnancially ruined and they get good access to the kids – they almost never get primary placement, unless mom is a convicted crack whore) – yet I have seen many women who seem pretty happy about the whole thing, even when the toll on children is obvious. About ruining hubby’s life, they usually seem poisitively gleeful.

    Dave from Hawaii seems to have really pulled the rabbit from the hat — good on ya, mate! But I doubt it would be so effective on most American women. And if you boast about your infidelity to the Mrs., don’t wait ten minutes, retain the best lawyer you can get. And deny EVERYTHING.

    If you are dumb enough to ever admit to infidelity in writing or even in a conversation (I encourage my clients in hgh-conflict divorces to tape every conversation with the estranged spouse), even a good lawyer probably can’t help you much.

  420. Doug,
    The very nature of The Wire is markedly different from what we as Americans (foreign audiences LOVE The Wire, I should point out) have come to expect, where all problems are solved inside of a half hour, an hour, or 90 minues in the case of a flick, the handsome guy gets the beautiful bombshell of a gal, and they go off happily into the sunset.

    Well, The Wire aint that kind of show.

    First off, the writing is such that the viewer really has to be invested in the whole process, because each season is like one long, 13 episode long movie or “novel”. So, you dropping in on a season and seeing a few episodes, nah, that aint gonna work. You need to see the thing from the beginning of the season to the end just in order to know what’s going on. Otherwise, you’re toast.

    Second, I’ll say again-The Wire is NOT a feelgood show. It portrays, in gritty, brutally harsh detail, the reality of American innercity life. While shot on location in Baltimore, it could have just as easily been made in ATL, New Orleans, Philly, NYC, Motown, Chitown, Los Angeles, Newark, or Camden, or Jersey City, Memphis, Miami…you name it. Its not for nothing that The Wire became such a big hit w/Black folks, because Black folks either can either directly relate to it, or are only a person or two removed from it. Remember, the Noveau Riche in Black America really ARE “new”.

    Next, and Simon himself says as much, your reasoning for not wacthing much of The Wire comports w/his remarks as to why it never gained the kind of viewership and awards as other shows, such as The Sorpranos, garnered. Simon, never to disappoint, simply said that the show focused on Blacks, and mostly White America didn’t want to see that, especialy “problem” Black folk. In fact, Simon doesn’t hide his racial views wrt The Wire, and has said in an interview w/Bill Moyers that if what was happening to Black B-More was instead happening to White folk there’d be hell to pay. But since its Black folks, we as a society are willing to turn a blind eye to what’s going on, so long as we can keep em contained…as you basically said above. Whether or not that’s a good thing to do or not, what’s problematic to me personally, is that we don’t have the balls to at least call it for what it is-we’re willing to cull the un-neccessary portion of American society-those who were truly Left Behind-by allowong them to kill themselves, either outright via vicious gun violence, or slowly via drug addiction and quiet desperation. In this way, The Wire is a stinging indictment on us all, as Americans.

    Oh, don’t get it twisted Doug, Simon is no doubt about it, an Angry Man, and I liken The Wire to Mark Twain’s “Angry Letter”. And after watching all 60 episodes of The Wire over the past month or so, all five seasons in their entirety and in sequence, if you’re NOT angry by the time you’re finished, you’re not human.

    What are the solutions, you ask? Good question, because The Wire certainly don’t offer many. Sure, there are a few bright spots-Bubbles is on the recovery trail and gets invited upstairs for dinner. Namond Brice, the heir-apparent to Wee Bey Brice, is adopted by Bunny Colvin and his wife and is last seen being a Great Debater. Michael Lee-the new Omar Little-makes sure his little brother Bug has a shot at a decent life w/their auntie out in the County. McNulty and Freamon settle down to what promises to be relatively quiet family lives.

    But the the bright spots still, are few and far between. The Greek and his right hand Man Vondas, are still rolling. The Stevodores are dead. So too are so many Wire characters, previously mentioned. And the Game, plays on.

    But perhaps the main reason why I exhort others to actually watch The Wire was because I got tired of the constant Saileresque harping on Black folks, both in realtime and on the big and small screens, that goes on in Conservative/Libertarian/HBD circles. I wanted to sock it to em that there was a major network show, that aired for some 6 years, that completely shat all over these guys neat little assumptions. And lo and behold, because it don’t fit the script, quite a few of those guys either refuse to watch the show outright, basically Ad Hom its creator, or do a hatchet job of viewing, and then mail their reviews in.

    In no way am I saying that Simon is perfect or that his creation, The Wire, is. But for my money, its arguably one of if not thee best, and honest, dramas to ever feature on the Boob Tube.

    If you’re Man enough, you gotta checkout The Wire.

    Dana — I am all too familiar with the “abusive husband” nonsense. Unfortunately, this kind of silliness can work; a good lawyer for the husband can shred it nicely, however, and it has been known to backfire on occasion.

    Men usually are too honest (or they don’t think it’s necessary) to pull equivalent crap on their soon-to-be-ex-wives. But if you can lie very convincingly, gents, world’s your oyster.

    I can’t encourage lying to the po-po, but recently I had a client whose estranged wife was a confirmed hothead with a history of physical abuse (he’d never called the cops on her sorry ass, so he couldn’t prove any of it) and she was easily goaded into throwing a punch at him while she was at the marital domicile.

    He ran right to the cops – he had visible injury on his face – and got her arrested within literally minutes. A no-contact order was in effect within hours, and she never set foot in the house again. He got pretty much everything (her relatives needed police escort to get her stuff out of the house) — to avoid a conviction for assault & battery she signed everything over to him, basically.

    The guy had big balls, serious determination, and a goooood lawyer. 🙂

    And you see this in the show. The black cops, the black politicians, etc., by and large don’t care about the community as a whole.

    And if the blacks in power don’t care to help the blacks without power, and if the blacks without power don’t care to help themselves (and they certainly could if they had the desire and drive), then conditions won’t change.

    As for quote, take it up w/Simon, he’s the one who said it. I’d love to hear what his response is too when you step to.

    As for Blacks helping Blacks and all that, I know plenty of Black folk who toil errday out there trying to do right by their fellow Black American. So you ain’t saying nothin but a word. But the fact remains that Black folks didn’t suddenly wakeup and see West B-More a dump-forces OUTSIDE Black America came to bear, too. Careful now w/what I’m saying-Black folk do indeed bear a good bit of responsibility, as Bunk points out to Omar in Season Three-but so too do those largely White forces, that up and abandoned the cities as well.

    Keep in mind here, B-More was part of the Confederate South, and Jim Crow was rampant well into the 60s-this is on top of what I just noted above. Again, my point was that Black folk had considerable shit to deal with that Jews, Italians, Irish or Poles, simply didn’t have to deal or put up with. For every slight, real or imagined you can name about any of those groups, I can easily cite twice, thrice, four times as many when it came to Blacks.

    It’s not “happening to them”. They’re doing it to themselves. Yeah you can take one individual and say it’s happening to him; there’s a collectivity at work there, a culture. I say to that individual, get out. Where you ask. Some college town for example. In NY go live among poor white hipsters. Get a job in a pizza place or whatever. Move up from there. Lose that culture.

    It doesn’t happen to whites on a permanent basis Obsidian, at least except in some corners of white society, because they don’t let it. Though bad things do happen, just not as bad. There’s white trailer park society. But a lot do rise out of that. The closest thing where people don’t so much or didn’t was famously Appalachia. Hillybilly culture. There too the reasons are cultural. But it seems to not be nearly so violent or destructive, though the inbreeding appears fairly real if sometimes partly exaggerated. More do seem to be getting out for some long time now.

    Whether or not that’s a good thing to do or not, what’s problematic to me personally, is that we don’t have the balls to at least call it for what it is-we’re willing to cull the un-neccessary portion of American society-those who were truly Left Behind-by allowong them to kill themselves, either outright via vicious gun violence, or slowly via drug addiction and quiet desperation.

    Well I’ve got the balls to say it. I did in my prior comment and I’ll say it even more explicitly. The Wire makes me give even less of a fuck about those people than I did before. I do wish they’d just disappear. I don’t consider it an indictment at all. In fact I think it’s utterly dysgenic for modern welfare society to do as much as it does to help people so beyond the pale. Try to pluck out and away the few who could not just barely make it but really make it and devote even less resources to the remainder. Slowly reduce.

    Condemn away Obsidian.

    Yes. What watching the Wire as much as I did made me care far less about those people. Who as I said I feel far less kinship to than the children of immigrant Chinese – or Vietnamese, not to mention Arabs or Russians or South Americans.

    No one imposed that culture on them Obsidian. Or I’ll say it, those IQ endowments. Those left behind were left behind for a reason and it’s not all cultural. As the genius anonymous statistician La Griffe Du Lion puts it:

    Baltimore is typical of many Midwestern and Northern cities, whose demographics were forever changed by the great black migration of the twentieth century. Not unexpectedly we found a cognitive discontinuity at the city line. Surprising, however, was its magnitude. Whereas suburban mean IQs (86 for blacks, 99 for whites) conform more or less to national norms, city IQs are dreadfully low. With a mean IQ of 76, inner-city blacks fall about 0.6 SD below the African American average nationally. More than a third have death-penalty immunity on grounds of mental retardation. The inner-city white mean of 86 is nearly a full standard deviation below the national white average. By this measure, whites fared worse than blacks. Both groups are seriously deficient in human capital. Neither is very employable. To compound matters, we almost certainly have overstated urban IQs.

    The show is almost completely created by White men. Fuck David Simon and his liberal Jewish boy bullshit.

    And if White Americans were giving the Wire high ratings I’m sure we’d all be hearing assholes saying – ” White folks just want to see niggah who aint shit, like we all nothing by savages from the hood. What about all the black folks who got their shit together? Y’all don’t want to know about that.”

    Niggahs behave like shit and then as usual White folks get blames for it one way or another. Either for the actual behavior or for not wanting to watch a poorly photographed soap opera about it.

    I agree. Or I agree with your basic point entirely. Although for clarity you’re being a bit extremist.

    WASPs (I’m one) did help out immigrant groups to some degree especially beginning after the civil war but mostly beginning after the start of the Progressive Era at the beginning of the 20th century. Before that there were some religious missions and the like not all of which required conversion to try to help with education and to feed the trying hungry and what not.

    But it became much more widespread beginning with the progressives.

    However all such efforts are utterly dwarfed by the efforts to help the poor but particularly and with much focus the black poor since the civil rights movement got underway.

    You’re absolutely right that what’s uniquely missing in the black ghetto, or unique by vastness of degree compared to other groups, is the lack of self help.

    I’ll second Doug after reading all this.

    Feminists have lobbied to change the laws to be disgustingly unfair. There is no chance to vote on these laws, or to elect/unseat anyone who votes on these laws. They are done in secret, and are retroactive to anyone who got married even when the laws were far better (say, 1989 or even 1997, for that matter).

    Furthermore, too many people think that just because something is the law, it is somehow morally just. A depressing number of Beta males get duped into this, which is why it has gotten so bad.

    I agree. Do not get married. Marriage is no longer what we were raised to think it is, what our parents generation still thinks it is.

  445. Hello Esquire,
    Hey, no harm no foul about the historical error I made wrt MD. My bad.

    As for your time on the streets, I doubt if its as extensive, as a law enforcement official, as Ed Burns, co-writer of The Wire. But perhaps you can enlighten me.

    In any event, the general point remains, that like just about everywhere else in America, B-More was racially segregated, which almost always meant “less than”, de facto Jim Crow. Add this to the abandoning of Big Cities by other White social, economic and political forces, and we can see how the stage was set for what we see today.

    Again-I am not saying that Black folks don’t have any responsibility here, or that they have no agency in the matter either. What I’m railing against is this idea that all of a sudden, Black folk just cropped up w/these problems. I know it feels good to think that way, but that’s just not the reality.

    And finally, my beef w/the HBD crowd on this score is that, like Whiskey, they constantly complain that network tv doesn’t “keep it real” when it comes to Black crime and so on. Then, when The Wire basically shows you, show after show, nothing BUT Black criminality, usually of the most vicious sort, they suddenly change the goalposts.

    That’s my point. My main one, anyway.

    As for Blacks helping Blacks and all that, I know plenty of Black folk who toil errday out there trying to do right by their fellow Black American. So you ain’t saying nothin but a word. But the fact remains that Black folks didn’t suddenly wakeup and see West B-More a dump-forces OUTSIDE Black America came to bear, too. Careful now w/what I’m saying-Black folk do indeed bear a good bit of responsibility, as Bunk points out to Omar in Season Three-but so too do those largely White forces, that up and abandoned the cities as well.

    Blacks don’t to squat to help themselves compared to every other once lagging ethnic group in America. They’re by FAR the worst. And it shows.

    But a lot of that is genetics. Blacks have low IQ’s for genetic reasons. And high aggression for genetic reasons. And impulsivenss for the same reasons, though that’s highly correlated to the first two.

    Still they could do far more to help themselves. If anything they’ve been far too much helped and told by the culture (the leftist Jewish lead media and academic culture I’ll add, fearless as I am at least when anonymous) that it’s all whitie’s fault.

    I’ll tell you what Obsidian. America has prejudice against lots of groups to begin with. Anyone too different in ways that aren’t obviously admirable from whatever the more successful melange of the country is at the time in question. But with group after group, once they started to really make it, or maybe they had to do a lot more than just start but to be making it wholesale for large numbers to get on board, Americans have accepted them.

    They need to be told that overwhelmingly now it’s there fault. And that they’re going to get less and less for screwing up. Well help the winners among you and the rest can go rot.

    Routinely executing those sentenced to life in prision, and doing it within 3-5 years of conviction would be good too. Cut off all the endless legal bullshite. I saw that as an elite trained lawyer. Our system is absurd. And yeah I’m willing to see a innocent people executed as the cost. Tough.

  451. Doug, isn’t it interesting that you are telling men not to get married? Men are often seen as not wanting to settle down, always talking about marriage as ball and chain, yet many of them want to get married? Before I got married, my ex frequently talked about marriage, and I was always very, very hesitant.

    I think often men want to tie down women with marriage, and they end up getting tied down themselves. It’s best not to marry if you have any doubt at all. The system works against men, and marriage is in reality the same as cohabitation, just with terrible legal entanglements and society-level shaming for getting out.

    The reason why alimony and child support are so vehemently anti-men is because of people hate the idea of a large welfare state and supporting out-of-work single mothers. Half of the middle class women don’t work, and they would get government assistance if their ex-husbands didn’t pay up.

    Right now the welfare state is small and has been reducing its size. You get a bunch of stories with white babies whose fathers didn’t pay up, and you get harsher legislation on child support. The laws aggressively pursue ex-husbands and fathers in order to not have these women on the government payroll. They get tough not because they hate men, but because they are the easiest ones to squeeze money out of. That’s the economic reality of it.

    Obsidian,
    I don’t have a problem with any quote from any show or creator. I have a problem with your religion of victimhood and your inability to read for comprehension and follow a simple line of logic.

    1. Sailer never said, or implied that The Wire was inaccurate about who was killing who in Baltimore. You said he did. He didn’t (regardless of how insightful his review was or wasn’t.)

    2. That The Wire somehow invalidated the focus of HBD, Sailer and the like. It didn’t. The Wire showed us that places that have a large black populations are basically lawless hellholes. That is in LARGE agreement with Sailer and other HBDers.

    3. You implied that “white folk” just don’t care, taht is why The Wire got lower ratings (than, say, The Sopranos). It was White Folk, relative to basically everyone else, who watched the show. Did they watch it as much as, say, American Idol? No. But that is not an indictment of White Folk, but of Teenaged Girls of any race.

    4. That I had some sort of problem with some quote that Bill Moyers got in some interview. I couldn’t give two fucks about about that former preacher or any interview he got. I was responding to what you were saying and implying. If you were getting all of your thoughts from some interview, that is for you to deal with.

Crime would go down, taxes would go down, health-care costs would go down, feminism would go down (since blacks vote democrat, which gives feminism strength).

  458. Hi Willie,

    I knew this topic would be right up your alley…

    Obsidian: The very nature of The Wire is markedly different from what we as Americans (foreign audiences LOVE The Wire, I should point out)

    Willie: Well, if that’s true it’s because foreigners like seeing America portrayed a a pile of steaming shit because it makes them feel better about themselves. Most foreigners are jealous of America.

    O: Actually Willie, the UK loves The Wire. Last time I checked we have quite a close historical and strategic relationship w/them, yes?

    O: Next, and Simon himself says as much, your reasoning for not wacthing much of The Wire comports w/his remarks as to why it never gained the kind of viewership and awards as other shows, such as The Sorpranos, garnered. Simon, never to disappoint, simply said that the show focused on Blacks, and mostly White America didn’t want to see that, especialy “problem” Black folk.

    W: The show is almost completely created by White men. Fuck David Simon and his liberal Jewish boy bullshit.

    O: OK, go and tell him that, because I’m only repeating what he said.

    W: And if White Americans were giving the Wire high ratings I’m sure we’d all be hearing assholes saying – ” White folks just want to see niggah who aint shit, like we all nothing by savages from the hood. What about all the black folks who got their shit together? Y’all don’t want to know about that.”

    O: Nope. The Wire was always highly critically acclaimed but never got the kinds of ratings that Deadwood or The Sorpranos or Six Feet Under (talk about depressing!) got. And much of said critical acclaim indeed came from Whites. But anyway, that wasn’t Simon’s point. Google up his interview w/Bill Moyers to hear exactly what he said, also go to Wikipedia to read exactly what he said about why he feels The Wire never rated as high as it should have.

    W: Niggahs behave like shit and then as usual White folks get blames for it one way or another. Either for the actual behavior or for not wanting to watch a poorly photographed soap opera about it.

    O: Wrong. I have been saying from the get go that The Wire doesn’t lay blame on Whitey for the state of present day B-More, and in fact depicts more Black violent crime, consistently, than ANY other televised drama. In fact I defy you to come up w/a better dramatic example, Willie. I’ll wait.

    O: In fact, Simon doesn’t hide his racial views wrt The Wire, and has said in an interview w/Bill Moyers that if what was happening to Black B-More was instead happening to White folk there’d be hell to pay. But since its Black folks, we as a society are willing to turn a blind eye to what’s going on, so long as we can keep em contained…

    W: Well your boy Obama is president, your boy Eric Holder is Attorney General and most of these black shit holes have black mayors. It’s their move. I aint cleaning up after negro fuck ups.

    O: OK, but please get the facts straight, I did not vote for Obama. I voted for McCain. And what you say about Black Mayoralty in much of Black America is for the most part true, and is also depicted on The Wire.

    O: In this way, The Wire is a stinging indictment on us all, as Americans.

    W: I lived in Baltimore. I’m not going to let myself be indicted for the shit that blacks are doing. My solution to these low IQ, live for the moment, babies out of wedlock, animalistic people is harsher prison sentences. Lock em up and let them rot unto death.

    O: Actually Willie, if you checkout The Corner, another Dave Simon creation, and starring among others, lifelong Baltimore native actor Charles S. Dutton. At the beginning of the show Dutton points out that, in the 60s, I think it was, MD had like 5 prisons. By the time the 21st century rolled around, it had TWENTYEIGHT.
    So believe me, Black folk ARE being locked up, and for longer sentences. And it still aint working.

    W: The blacks that CHOOSE to live a more responsible life will be better off without them.

    O: Again, no argument there, since most middle class Blacks live seperate and apart from their working and underclass brethren. Whether that’s a good thing od not is up for debate.

  460. Obsidian — The racial attitudes inherent in the Wire (from what I gather, I have not seen it but saw the prequel Homicide) are destructive:

    *That White “good” liberals can “save” Black America.
    *That Black America’s failings are the result of “bad” Whites keeping them down.
    *That Blacks themselves yearn for a “White Knight” to “set them free.”

    We’d laugh at that with Captain Save-a-Hoe, and yet we see this with Black people all the time. NO amount of White Liberal handwringing will EVER fix Baltimore or South Central. Heck things were BETTER under Segregation because Black society functioned better at taking responsibility.

    Booker T. Washington advocated a “Prussian” model of Black self-reliance, education, trade schools, as well as professionals so Blacks would be the MOST skilled Mechanics, Accountants, and Lawyers. Seems like a good idea to me. WEB Dubois argued for a “talented tenth” Black aristocracy extorting concessions from White Liberals — sounds like a failure to me.

    Whites cannot help or hinder Black progress and eradication of poverty. That’s something for Blacks themselves to decide — Booker T or WEB? I think it’s clear that the agenda of continued White moralizing about who is good and who is bad (“abandonment” vs. “engagement”) is not sustaining, certainly not in a recession with endless Black race-baiting ala Holder and Obama and Wright. No amount of White concessions and funneling money to the talented Tenth (Henry Gates having another Cambridge Mansion) will fix Baltimore and no amount of White racism could stop Blacks from fixing Baltimore if they were determined.

    Whites don’t matter to Black people either way. That’s the truth.

    He has enough common sense to have voted against Obama and for McCain. Thus, he did what 96% of blacks could not do (98% if you exclude black immigrants from the West Indies or Africa).

    So he gets called an Uncle Tom and race traitor by blacks who can’t believe he didn’t blindly vote for Obama.

    Thus, he has to go out of his way to fight for black dignity over here (usually losing, as virtually no non-black agrees with him, and no other blacks want to high alongside him).

    So his race baiting here is to prove his cred with other blacks despite having voted against Obama (again, which I applaud).

    Leading liberals were Jews, but so were leading Neo Cons. The second highest rated conservative talk show host is Jewish.

    I’m willing to be shown I’m wrong. But as far as I can tell, there’s no pattern to their ideology.

    1) You’re largely right. I’ve said that repeatedly. My ex wife was Jewish. Lots of my friends and work colleagues and all that. I work in a heavily Jewish industry. I’m not remotely anti-Semitic.

    2) Jews have constructed by far the greatest shield to group criticism that any group in any liberal democracy enjoys, here in America, while themselves sharply and deeply criticizing any other possibly challenging or in any way competive group, as a group. E.g. Jewish savaging or ridiculing or endless “light” making fun of, wasps, Puritans, the Religious Right, Christians in Europe persecuting the Jews (never anything about Jews preying upon gentile communities but not themselves) and so on. That shield is called the utterly forbidden charge of “anti-Semitism”. Should it stick you’re at least blocked from advancing, if not in a little while fired or forced to resign, from virtually every elite job in American society today. University professors with tenure may not lose their jobs but they can forget about advancing to a better spot in a better place. Note I’m not talking about true Jew hating here. Just any very serious critique. Even what little moderate stuff I’ve said might qualify for the blocking and shunning bits were I not anonymous. It’s risky.

    3) What happens when you’re free to critique any group actions of others and their culture proclivities but enjoy near blanket immunity yourself, is that you’re uniquely free to use ethnic networks for ethnic favoritism that e.g. WASPs or Presbyterians discriminating in favor of their own when arguably qualifed but not more so, would get viciously attacked by, well Jews. You yourselves are immune. Blacks have similar immunity but they’re not in elite enough positions to use it the way Jews can. Except in city governments. But that does follow Irish and in Chicago Easter Euro white patterns, etc.

    4) Jews are overwhelmingly leftist in orientation, or as we call it in this country (as a result of Roosevelt era leftist’s euphemism spinning), “liberal”. They used to be heavily Marxist / communist and many in Academia still are, sort of. I’ve long though this was especially attractive to jews both because it was the French Revolution left that gave them full civil rights throughout Europe, but also because Marxism and Communism specifically offered a way in which Jews could help lead an evangalistic world religion, which all people were invited to join, with those in the vanguard including Jewish serving as the moral beacons. The religion of their fathers was by deep aspects of it’s nature a tribal religion of a specific, chosen, people, and not an evangelizing one. Why it couldn’t bcome evangelizing I frankly don’t personally know but it certainly nver did, except I guess in a few not very popular offshoots.

    5) So Jews have tended to seek to transform Western societies by breaking down their traditions in ways prescribed by leftists, out of a deep sense that this will prevent future host society progroms against Jews. You can perhaps see how this might seem a bit disproportionate to a non believer in either judiasm or Marxism or near marxism in a host society.

    6) Hence the nearly 100% Jewish desire to be extreely lax about population transforming mass immigration of the stupid from peasant Mexico and the rest of central America. Dilute any cohesive ethnic block in that host society. Safer for the Jews. Hey I’m not against safety for the jews or preventing pogroms, but there are a few other considerations guys! And I like to call you people out on it as having special group interests or at least many do even inf unconscious or not admitted to outsiders, or half consicous but much denied and so on. Can you promise me Seeking Alpha that I can do that without anonymity without having the Jewish networks (there isn’t just one, it’s all informal mostly, there are many) calling me an anti-Semite and blocking my career, maybe getting me fired, or denying me customers? Can you Seeking Alpha? I thought not.

    7) So yeah it’s high time that all this started getting called out.

    I await your considered response.

    I further put it to you that Jews have a special interest in making blacks a special protected class or group and helping them advance because of deep self interest.

    Note that Jews had nothing close to so much interest in doing so before WWII, Hitler and the Holocaust.

    Yes they had some. Yes it was all part of a communist/Marxist far left agenda to rise up the least as an active social project but that was more a class thing and it wasn’t so much focused on the least as an ethnic group but the whole working and under class.

    After the Holocaust it became essential for Jews that no group be allowed for any reason to be generally treated with scorn or as second class. If blacks could be for one set of reasons, not entirely accurate and anyway exaggerated, and besides we believe its all environmental and changeable because we’re all blank slates at birth anyway, then Jews could be for another, also not very accurate. Which could lead to an American Holocaust. Well it’s possible. Lets take no chances. Remember those anti Semitic placards and burning crosses of the KKK esp in the march on Washington in 1924. Let’s draw the line way before Jews, back before blacks.

    I’m not saying that’s the only reason and I’m not saying that’s bad for the most part. However the Jewish fervor on the topic is for a reason, and it’s not all altruism.

  481. Why it couldn’t bcome evangelizing

    Evangelist Judiaism for all intents and purposes is Islam. The dietary restrictions are somewhat similar, the prescribed gender roles aren’t too far off, and the structure of imams and religous courts aren’t too far off from the respective counterparts in Orthodox Judaism.

    Admittedly, I’ve always wondered in the concept of tikkun olam plays a role in Jewish liberal views.

    The really ugly truth that you don’t want to admit is that the conditions are the way they are because blacks as a culture don’t help THEMSELVES.

    My mom as an nearly 40 year immigrant* to the United States has noted this from her observations. She remembers how Haitians would pool up money to buy a van and each pay a fare in order to get a ride to a suburban factory while the local black counterparts couldn’t be bothered to enact a similar system. William Julius Wilson made similar observations comparing poor blacks and Hispanics in Chicago in “When Work Disappears”.

    *Within six months of my mom immigrating to the States, Martin Luther King Jr was assassinated leading my mom to wonder who this “Dr. King” guy was and why people would be so upset over him.

    And if the blacks in power don’t care to help the blacks without power,

    I’m almost tempted to say it’s the main reason for the lack of proper governance in African countries. The government is the easiest means of becoming rich, and rent seeking attracts the best and brightest who have no care about improving the state of their nations while they live at near white levels of luxury.

    In other words, is it important to lift the group up slightly or is it important to get somebody at the top who can represent their interests as an “equal”. Of course, this presumes that the average IQ was enough to supply enough of tradesmen and professionals in the first place.

    O: They do? Very few Black folk I personally know blame Whites for anything, and usually tend to frown on other Blacks who attempt to do same.

    W: *That Blacks themselves yearn for a “White Knight” to “set them free.”

    O: They do? That’s certainly news to me, and I’m pretty sure I spend a heck of a lot more time among and around Black folk than you do.

    W: We’d laugh at that with Captain Save-a-Hoe, and yet we see this with Black people all the time. NO amount of White Liberal handwringing will EVER fix Baltimore or South Central. Heck things were BETTER under Segregation because Black society functioned better at taking responsibility.

    O: In some respects this is true, however, we cannot totally discount DuBois’ point, that the American Creed must apply to all, or risk not being real for any. This message is heard again in MLK’s speeches and writings, and in Frederick Douglass’ before DuBois himself. And is quite a legit point, I might add.

    W: Booker T. Washington advocated a “Prussian” model of Black self-reliance, education, trade schools, as well as professionals so Blacks would be the MOST skilled Mechanics, Accountants, and Lawyers. Seems like a good idea to me. WEB Dubois argued for a “talented tenth” Black aristocracy extorting concessions from White Liberals — sounds like a failure to me.

    O: Actually, I was partial to Booker T’s message. As it turned out, I was in the minority.

    W: Whites cannot help or hinder Black progress and eradication of poverty. That’s something for Blacks themselves to decide — Booker T or WEB? I think it’s clear that the agenda of continued White moralizing about who is good and who is bad (”abandonment” vs. “engagement”) is not sustaining, certainly not in a recession with endless Black race-baiting ala Holder and Obama and Wright. No amount of White concessions and funneling money to the talented Tenth (Henry Gates having another Cambridge Mansion) will fix Baltimore and no amount of White racism could stop Blacks from fixing Baltimore if they were determined.

    O: Maybe. Maybe not.

    W: Whites don’t matter to Black people either way. That’s the truth.

    O: Whether they do or don’t really isn’t my point wrt The Wire, Whiskey. I’m simply saying its a great show, and directly contradicts all you say about tv these days. Period.

  510. Doug, the thing about the laws and courts is that they serve the ends, and do not “care” much about anything. They are impersonal.

    The way the society is set up, spending is the way to go, growth every quarter, stocks must rise or there’s a panic, etc. True conservatism does not exist anymore. You blame feminism for the ills that befall modern society, but frankly I see it as a symptom not a root cause.

    In Japan, family courts rarely issue child support. According to various research, their system to collect child support is extremely weak. Yes there is some feminism, but there’s still plenty of prostitution, women do not match men in amount made, and traditional ideas of being a good wife and mother. They also have some strange fertility rituals, but I digress. Their birth rate is incredibly low, and marriage rates are also low.

    “Enforcement of laws connected to alimony, child support, visitation rights, court orders, and custody in Japan is very weak.

    If one side refuses to agree to the divorce, you will have to negotiate until you do, which can take many years. You can legally separate, but this is not a divorce, and you cannot remarry. Moreover, if there is a secret relationship behind the breakup, a spouse in Japan can sue your new partner for damages, demanding both you and your partner pay consolation for wrecking the marriage.

    Weak-to-nonexistent enforcement of laws and court rulings mean that men in the Japanese system (as compared to, for example, the American) do not stand to lose enormously financially. They will, however, lose their children.

    [The system] permits the spouse with economic assets (usually the husband) to keep most of his assets, avoid payment of alimony and provide little or no child support.”

    I’m not saying you should look to Japan as the model of what the West would be like if feminism did not exist, or if courts stopped handing out alimony or child support. But it is an example of a system that is not inherently feminist, but still pretty messed up. People are still having trouble keeping families together, and neither men nor women appear to be happy in this society.

    W: A woman in a bad spiral can only save herself, a guy can’t “rescue” her at all. Same with a people.

    O: OK…

    W: As for the Wire, it was on HBO. Let’s assume it was all you and Sailer say it was — it’s like Gossip Girl. A show that gets tremendous amounts of buzz, that no one watched. Or Mad Men for that matter. Southland, a perfectly dreadful series remake of Crash, which got middling reviews and audiences, probably had three times the audience that the Wire ever got.

    O: Maybe. All’s I know is that just about everyone who’s seen The Wire at the very least likes it, if not loves it, and that includes CH. Moreover, it’s arguably the most critically acclaimed tv show ever, at the least one of in the history of tv.

    W: The best movie ever about “Redemption” was “the Apostle” — where clearly one act could not redeem the character (Robert Duvall) rather a lifetime (literally) of hard work in prison.

    O: I loved the movie. Duvall also directed, yes?

  519. — Jim Crow was rampant well into the 60s

    Jim Crow was a detente based on a peaceful separation of races. Its primary porpose was to protect ordinary class whites from blacks’ predations. It had its obnoxious aspects, but what we have today is far worse. Because blacks, with exceptions, have not lived up to their responsibilites as free men.

    — Executions are the reserve of uncivilized cultures and other barbaric races.

    Due-process capital punishment is the cornertstone of civilized society. Civilization does not tolerate barbarism.

    — White people are far better than that.

    In David’s mind white people are santa claus / feed for morlocks. In reality, white people are human beings who have the right to exit, to be free, to have autonomy and separation frm others, to self-govern, and to propagate their culture and their genes.

  521. From Wikipedia:

    The Jim Crow laws were state and local laws in the United States enacted between 1876 and 1965. They mandated de jure segregation in all public facilities, with a supposedly ” separate but equal ” status for black Americans. In reality, this led to treatment and accommodations that were usually inferior to those provided for white Americans , systematizing a number of economic, educational and social disadvantages.

    Some examples of Jim Crow laws are the segregation of public schools, public places and public transportation, and the segregation of restrooms and restaurants for whites and blacks. The U.S. military was also segregated. These Jim Crow Laws were separate from the 1800-66 Black Codes , which had also restricted the civil rights and civil liberties of African Americans. State-sponsored school segregation was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court of the United States in 1954 in Brown v. Board of Education . Generally, the remaining Jim Crow laws were overruled by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 [ 1 ] and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 .

  522. More from Wikipedia:

    Racism in the United States and defenses of Jim Crow

    In addition to the problems that Southerners encountered in learning free labor management after the end of slavery, Black Americans represented the Confederacy ‘s Civil War defeat: “With white supremacy challenged throughout the South, many whites sought to protect their former status by threatening African Americans who exercised their new rights.” [ 9 ] White Democrats used their power to segregate public spaces and facilities in law and reestablish dominance over blacks in the South.

    One rationale for the systematic exclusion of Black Americans from southern public society was that it was for their own protection. An early 20th century scholar suggested that having allowed Blacks in White schools would mean “constantly subjecting them to adverse feeling and opinion”, which might lead to “a morbid race consciousness”. [ 10 ] This perspective took anti-Black sentiment for granted, because bigotry was widespread in the South.

  532. Doug,

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Replies below:

    D: What white racism remains is by and large more than justified. Not in every case certainly, but overall.

    O: I suppose, but the issue here isn’t individual views and mindsets, but rather public policy. I’m interested in the latter, and so are most Black folk. Trust me, none of us are losing any sleep at night because a few Crackers don’t like us.

    D: People have to earn respect. Not have it given to them. That’s how every other group’s had to make it.

    O: Then by that measure I would have to say, based on the historical record, Blacks on a whole have more than earned “respect”, far and away than most Whites today, whose lineages don’t even go back beyond the year 1900.

    D: There’s ample reason to have a jaundiced view towards the true credentials of black professionals, considering the extent of affirmative action that was available to them if that’s what they need to get where they are. How does one know, with that so verboten and so avidly covered up in individual cases? If one can know, and the guy still easily makes the grade, not by minimal and questionably low ones but by high ones, then hey, sure. No problem. Were it not for affirmative action that later would be generally the case for those that still did make it.

    O: I find it interesting that we’ve jumped from a discussion about The Wire to now a discussion about Affirmative Action. LOL. Well, let me say this. I don’t see many Legacy Kids hanging their heads in shame because their parents greased enough palms and paved the way for them to be successful in life-in fact, I believe it was Saul Bellow’s boy who wrote about the peculiar American tradition of Nepotism, and clearly, far and away more Whites have benefitted from this than Black, up and down the ladder.

    But, as is your Mr. See No Evil way, you ONLY make an issue out it, when Black folk do it, or come anywhere close. Personally, I’m deeply ambivalent on AA, because for every benefit therein there is also a real drawback to it. But perhaps the biggest problem I have w/the whole debate and its promoters, like you, is that Blacks have to be held to some high bar ethical standard that Whites themselves wouldn’t stand for one nanosecond-for example, where were you when guys like GWB got over SOLELY because he was the fortunate busted nut of old Man Bush?!? I mean, we can go right on down the line, both on the Right and the Left (Kennedy) w/this, and yet, no one seems to have a problem with it. ONLY when Black folk start to use the political spoils process to explicitly help themselves (recall your words along these lines?) THEN it becomes a problem.

    Funny that.

    As for me personally, AA has bever touched my life. Everything I am, I did based on my own merit, and the lines of work I did were the kind where you couldn’t cheat the stats. Prior to working in the industrial sector I worked in Sales-and lemme be clear by what I mean here. I’m not talking about the kind of sales where you make a paycheck whether you sell soap of not-I’m talking the kind of sales where if you don’t hit your number and move product, you don’t eat. And there have been quite a few nights where I skipped dinner because I didn’t make it happen.

    That only spurred me on to excel, and no one, White, Black or Other can take that away from me. In fact, the whole of my adult working life has been tangible, production based, where performance can be clearly measured and assessed, unlike so many cublicle farm gigs today. People can say all they want about me, but they can’t say that I don’t know my job or that I wasn’t very good at it; to a Man, all of them agree that my work ethic, performance and production is unquestioned.

  534. Doug,
    There are a few other things you said that you wanted my reaction to; I’l try to respond now.

    Your reaction to what I paraphrased from Simon, about how we basically have a surplus of people in the post-industrial era, and how we’re willing to let them “off” themselves, is interesting. I say that because if one applies a strictly racial lens, as you’ve done, to this thing, then its an easy sell, as you’ve said yourself-the people of West B-More are “not like you”. So you really don’t have too much of a problem w/them “offing” themselves.

    Of course, the problem w/that kind of thinking, is akin to looking at the world through a keyhole, instead of a door, and here’s where the sheer genius of The Wire again comes shining through.

    I say that because, as I’ve noted earlier, one of thee most poignant seasons of the series, and my personal fave, was Season Two, which focused on B-More’s White Working Class. In this case, Polish folks, who lived and died, on the docks. The fictional Stevodores’ Union formed the backdrop of The Wire’s examination of the Death of Work in post-industrial America at the dawn of the 21st century.

    Keep in mind now, we’re talking a season focused almost exclusively, on White folks. And a season I’m fairly certain you haven’t seen much of, if at all.

    OK, so what does this have to do w/obstensibly dumb Black folks killing each other in he ghetto? Quite a bit as it turns out. Without hamfisted preachiness, The Wire shows the clear parallels btw what happened to West B-More a little over three decades ago, and what is happening to B-More’s Highland section of town, where many of its Poles live. Indeed, as the Union is in its death throes, the young “Wiggers” of Highland town turn to slinging on the corners-sound familiar, Doug? By now I shouldn’t have to spell it all out for ya. You’re a Stanford Man afterall.

    But suffice it to say, w/the aforementioned themes, and the subplot of White Slavery in the mix, Season Two of The Wire manages to tie two different worlds coexisting in one city-West Baltimore and its Highland section-by showing that in so many ways, it shared the same fate. As has been said many times here in this forum, Black America is the canary in the coalmine-what happens to us is only a preview of what’s to come for our White brothers and sisters. The Wire showed this very well in Season Two.

    Which brings me to another major point that, because you haven’t seen enough of it, to notice. And that is, that The Wire is an examination of institutions, and how, in an age of unbounded, raw, capitalism, ultimately betrays ALL of us. No matter if its the drugs trade, the police dept, the city/state gov’t, the schools or the docks/unions, The Wire shows again and again, how each institution fails its most loyal members, and in many ways betrays them.

    This is why, when you and others trot out the IQ argument, I take it w/a grain of salt, because I know the view is a bit wider than what you’re so intently focused on. Yea, Black folks may not be as smart as Whites, but the vast majority of those White guys, including Fank Sobotka himself, featured in The Wire’s second season, were gonna be accused of being Nobel winners either. Like Black folks in the not too distant past, these were honest, hardworking folk, the proverbial Salt of the Earth, Doug, who, perhaps because of teir skin color, perhaps because of them just abit smarter than dem Darkies, perhaps out of sheer luck of the draw, were able to dodge the bullet that hit Black folks, hard, in the 60s, 70s and early 80s, as manufacturing and semi-skilled/skilled labor left the cities enmasse.

    In short Doug, since we’re sitting upon the ground and talking as Men here, Frank Sobotka and his largely White Stevodores’ Union was Niggerized-debased, dehumanized, just plain ole dissed, and seen only as good as their lessening market value will allow them to hang on to their jobs by the powers that be. It’s interesting to note, in Season Three, after Season Two, seeing Clay Davis, a prominent and utterly corrupt Black MD State Senator, alongside other White luminaries, shovels in hand, breaking ground on the new proposed condos to be built on the carcass of the dockworkers’ home turf.

    It seems it ain’t only Black folks of more humble and modest means who were and are being abandoned, hmm Doug?

    Both the legit powers that be, like those mentioned above, and the underground forces, like The Greek, as I said, Niggerized not only Sobotka but his beloved Union. Unbounded capitalism, unencumbered by any other considerations, can do that. By Season Two’s end, we see Highlandtown start its slow and steady decline, from a strong Blue Collar section of the city, on an inexorable slide to West B-More’s bombed-out ways.

    Maybe IQ can explain that, too?

Who will in the first or second instance be most motivated to study a group like the Mosuo in detail and what will their agenda likely be?

    Wikipedia is often pretty good at arriving at what will stand as a consensus judgment.

    I would assume that most strippers wouldn’t be seeing their in-club clients in outside of the club contexts. Don’t they make enough money to shop, buy narcotics, and pay their bills with the money they make to have the luxury of choosing to schedule their off time with being around some guy who treats them poorly and are after their money and sex only?

    And whenever someone tells you that they had sex with a stripper in the champagne room, you might want to suggest that they make it sex after they got back to his place when telling the story in the future, so that it’s at least slightly believable. Still, if men go to clubs and bars – or strip clubs with bars – the chances of them finding a woman they could potentially marry are slim. For women working at any of the same, the chance of them meeting a man who is worthwhile in relationship options that potentially include marriage are nonexistent. They have to work where the worst case scenario classification of men tend to regularly frequent. This based on my interpretation of what would constitute as a client of an exotic dancer, which is something a lot like having “regulars” at a bar or restaurant who are particular about who the bartender or server is. Although there’s not really any issue of selling one’s used panties when employed as a bartender or server at regular places that are without “theater, dancers, gentlemen’s club, etc” in the name (as a start..there are more differences that I don’t have the time to state).

  551. Basically, I think this entire blog can be summed up as a silly/stupid question deserves a silly answer. I don’t consider women who continually run this kind of BS to be wife material anyway. My fiance has so far not done this much, if at all, which is why she is my fiance.

    Illustrative depictions of ham-handedly handled shit tests on television: Curb your Enthusiasm. There are often several examples per episode, and anyone who’s both read this blog and watched the show knows what his reactions to these scenes says about him. Being a sitcom impresario buys you some slack, but for most of us, I would caution against the Larry David approach.

The key with shit tests is to avoid excusing and justifying yourself; Alpha-Males feel no need to excuse themselves. Betas jump through these hoops; this is how the girlies weed them out.

  557. there is the “I can con the alpha” shit test… sometimes a girl strangely avoids shit tests. This isn’t necessarily a good sign… it means.

    1) she views you as out of her league. she’s been slumming it if she’s a hottie. maybe an inexperienced girl or small town.. easily impressed.

    2) is more scared of your questions of her (she is fucking other men concurrently) and has a very checkered history.

    usually 1 AND 2. In this situation… they WON’T shit test.. they will be like little submissive japanese girls with pigtails. Enjoy! Hack her computer ASAP with keyloggers before spending 5k on the vacation to find out what the faux docility is really about.

    wait three months… and the shit test monster will be unleashed once your game slips. Expect daily shit tests ad infinitum.. just like the rest.

  558. This was the first time I have encountered any Game or PUA information, quite by accident, but I am glad I did. While I cannot identify exactly with each ideal 100% (and I did not expect to), what I have learned here has reinforced my view of my comfortable place in this world. For awhile, I thought perhaps I was some sort of freak, from a different planet, or maybe the twilight zone. Why?

    I have always known that the only way I would ever have a satisfying relationship would be with a confident, take-charge man. Someone who can handle any small amount (tiny, really, but still there sometimes despite all of my self-awareness) of BS I might put out there (he Tarzan me Jane). And not only my BS, but all of the big BS that the world throws at him. Someone I can look up to in some regards, and drives me crazy at the same time. I will lose respect for any alternative. I don’t like to say that, but it is true.

    I often hear complaints from girls I know about their husbands’ more dominant moves, “he wants to live here, I want to live there,” or “he always (does something), and it drives me bananas. I don’t think I can be with him forever,” – if they are seeking advice, I will try to suggest that every institution needs a leader, or that it is impossible for two people to have exactly the same ideas all of the time, and one of them needs to be the final decision maker. I am always met with the “What are you, one of THEM?!” stare.

    So I am glad to know I am not a freak. In truth, I don’t suppose I ever thought I was, but its good to know that there may be others out there who concur, at least on some level. It was nice to see some other like-minded ladies posting as well. For whatever reason, my aforementioned viewpoints have segregated me somewhat from many female acquaintances.

    Thanks again-

  559. “Wow! One hundred and sixty bucks (plus tip) to talk to a chick. Well at least I know there are poor saps that are more beta than me.”

    Forget strippers, isn’t that the ballpark price of a really nice two-person dinner that betas use to try to buy access to a woman’s nether regions?

    Chicks who think the man has to compensate them for their time are daft. They are living in the deep dark past on the wrong side of the supply-demand curve. They should be compensating men for their time, since their feminist mothers ushered in an era where male investment in relationships was vilified and discouraged and there’s no going back.

  561. Another trick they use is the opposite game. What the two of you used to have in common, she now finds “uncool”. It’s a shit test. Stand your ground. If it gets to this point it’s probably over or close to being over. Stop calling her if this happens. Turn her down if she wants to go out. Tell her you’re going out with your bros. She may move on, she may not. But at least you won’t be left standing empty handed as you’ll still have your pride.
