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.
