Roosh V gets beer thrown in his face and followed by a mob in Montreal

I haven't written about Roosh V in quite a while. We've had a laugh at the Great Manosphere Invasion to Russia that never happened. In addition, I wrote a few posts that were critical of his kind of "game". Going abroad and hoping to make economic inequalities count in my favor is just nothing I consider particularly masculine to begin with.

Anyway, it seems that Roosh V has played up his PUA and anti-feminism angle a bit too much. Even though the claim is that there is no such thing as bad publicity, I'm tempted to believe that things are pretty bad if you need a bodyguard to protect you against an angry mob, which is exactly the situation Roosh V found himself in in Montreal some days ago.

Here's a video:

She claims she compensates for her (lack of) looks with her "intelligence and kindness"

Does anyone of you read the relationships board on Reddit? It's a veritable gold mine of comedy gold, and provides ample support for anybody who thinks that men are better off without women in the long run. It's not as if you needed much more examples for the reality-bending mental acrobatics some women engage: My [22 F] BF [29 M] said I'm not getting hired bc I'm unattractive

Let's start with this:

In elementary, I was teased about my weight. But, I was able to lose twenty pounds after high school. So, now, I'm 5'4" and 150 lbs. What sucks though, is that I still carry weight in my face and have an ugly double chin. I absolutely hate taking pictures because of that.
However, I feel that I've compensated for my looks with my intelligence and kindness. I know that I have an awesome personality. So, for the past couple of years, I've been content with myself.

The Open Thread: August 2015

Since I get a relatively high number of comments that are tangential to the articles, I'd like to try to move those parts of the conversation to the monthly 'Open Thread'.

In short, it you think anything you're going to write is "off topic" to the current post, but still related to pickup, women, gender politics and other topics I discuss on this blog, then please leave a comment to the most recent Open Thread, such like this one. Just post below.

Thank you.

Yes, you sadly have to be (somewhat) exceptional to get girls

I noticed some traffic from a forum on hairloss to my blog, which sounded a bit odd. As it turned out, Mr. Balding has been trying to get some assistance from his little support group. It's somewhat odd to see some guys getting their panties in a twist and calling me an "asswipe", "Pathetically predictable (hemorrhoid) 'roid dopehead" (that's quite creative!) or a "privileged fullhead".

One comment stood out in particular:
This! That's the paradox, they say it doesn't matter but all of a sudden you need to become this exceptional man in every area of his life to compensate for it. They don't even get the irony.
I did not claim that you need to be exceptional in any area. However, it is a sad fact of life that women gravitate towards top-shelf men. Even a '3' may think she deserves a '7'. A few years ago a study by OKCupid made the rounds online, according to which women consider 80 % of men to be below average.
[W]omen rate an incredible 80% of guys as worse-looking than medium. Very harsh. On the other hand, when it comes to actual messaging, women shift their expectations only just slightly ahead of the curve, which is a healthier pattern than guys’ pursuing the all-but-unattainable. But with the basic ratings so out-of-whack, the two curves together suggest some strange possibilities for the female thought process, the most salient of which is that the average-looking woman has convinced herself that the vast majority of males aren’t good enough for her, but she then goes right out and messages them anyway.
So, where does that leave average guys? It means that women, even when they initiate contact with you on an online dating site, may very well detest you because they are so deluded that they think they secretly deserve a male 10, but they rather get some loser in the mean time until Prince Charming descends from his horse and kneels down in front of her.

Wait, you’re telling me I have to make an effort in order to be attractive to women?

Following up on my last post, I’d like to cover another issue that was brought up by Mr. Balding, which he addresses in this paragraph:

In my experience, I know it's practically impossible for people who have hair to understand the struggle that is balding at a young age. They will offer you "solutions" like shaving it all off, getting a tan, and "becoming huge". As if those two last advices were healthy or so easy to put in practice. But in fact, they won't help at all, you will still remain "the bald guy" in the eyes of society. And in a time where looks are glorified in the media, you don't want to be that guy.

First of all, yes, if you are not Hunter S. Thompson or Trevor Philips from GTA V, it may be worth thinking about shaving your head in case you’re losing your hair. A tan, or a healthy complexion is also often advantageous. Having the color of a broiled chicken, which, for instance, many Swedish girls have all year round, is not the best possible treatment for your skin, though. “Becoming huge”, or at least gaining some muscle, is also a good way to become generally more attractive. Note that I am not saying that you need to be bulked. Just having a toned body will go a very long way in terms of increasing your looks. If you “get huge” but all your muscles are covered in fat, it won’t do you much good.

About women who give you shit

There was a rather emotional comment in the most recent Open Thread, where a reader claimed that balding would be an enormous problem for men who are affected by it. Well, losing your hair will certainly not make it easier for you to get your dick wet, but it is hardly the beginning of a never-ending dry spell. That comment caught my attention not so much because of the topic —- baldness — but due to the many attribution errors. In this article, I’d like to briefly discuss one of them.

So, have a look at the following paragraph, and think about what the problem with the bolded sentence might be:
I know you're not bald or even balding Aaron, so to do this, I suggest you gather opinions from bald men, especially men who have dealt with balding in their late teens and early 20's. I've been in that situation, and it was no walk in the park. Women telling me flat out that they don't date bald guys, women abusing me when I was in a relationship with them, and often replacing me once they had found a guy similar to me that had a full head of hair.

Is Nature “unfair” to Women?

I had an interesting conversation with a male Swedish feminist typical Swedish guy the other day. As it is often the case, once they have a few beers, they often make some very surprising statements that hint at some of the confusion they experience due to decades of indoctrination. He must have had two beers at this point, and part of his true personality apparently came through, because he suddenly talked about a “female friend” of his (translation: fuck buddy). He is close to 30, she is in her mid-thirties, and she seems to sometimes lament that she cannot find a guy to commit to her. For a moment I considered informing him about the fact that his fuck buddy relationship was somewhat one-sided, since she apparently has bigger plans for him. [My prediction is that she would end this arrangement as soon as she got a guy to really commit to her, but for plenty of women getting at least some dick on the side and fostering the delusion of a relationship is better than getting none at all and spending every evening with a bowl of ice cream in front of the TV.]

All of that is just a prelude to the rather amusing statement I then heard, as he claimed that nature was “unfair” to women. Said unfairness seemed to consist of the fact that men can be promiscuous at a time when women tend to start to panic because a lot of those guys who happily blew a load in them disappeared as quickly as they came, sometimes literally, and all those she “really liked”, because they were hotter than the average she could normally get, had no sustained interest in her.

As I thought about that, it quickly dawned on me that there is no unfairness at all. Women blossom sooner, for sure. So, a woman in her early thirties who has a hard time finding a guy who wants to keep her should first and foremost ask herself how it happened that she ended up being alone after 20 years of sexual activity.

Let’s talk about cuckoldry figures for a moment

Recently a reader commented on my post, Does every girl have her price?, that cuckoldry rates are most likely a lot lower than often assumed among critical thinkers misogynists. The reference he provides points to the Discovery Magazine, where Razib Khan attempts to dispel the alleged cuckoldry myth.

That article is a pretty nice example of blatant agenda. It seems that Razib Khan does like to steer his readers towards making particular conclusions. Okay, so maybe the 10% figure is overblown, or any low two-digit percent number. But raising another mans offspring with your resources, while you believe that that kid who for whatever reason does not look like you at all, despite the family of your wife stressing over and over how similar you two are, is not a trifling matter.
