Response to a Concern Troll: Alpha Status vs Socio Economic Status

When I was busy pummeling the PUA industry, trolls and shills were adorably cute. Their comments consisted of one-liners, personal attacks, or exaggerated praise of their master. Of course, their contributions often were in poor English, which indicated outsourcing to some guy in the Third World via sites like ODesk. Bullshit like that was annoying because it meant clicking "spam" over and over. For some time there was an RSD shill who commented "what the fuck is this shit" on several of my posts, which made me chuckle as it was precisely the kind of fake "alpha" posturing a guy like RSD's Jeffy promotes. The more eloquent trolls and shills I addressed in the comment section, which led to some hilarious exchanges.

Now that I occasionally tackle some topics that are more serious than making fun of PUAs who don't get laid, I seem to attract a much different kind of troll. A shining example is "Peter" who claims that Muslims are more "alpha" than German men and thus get all ze German women. His comment originally appeared on my brief post on the main cast of the TV show Entourage.

Random thought: Are Vinnie and his boys from Entourage betas?

After some potentially depressing posts on Muslim terrorism in Germany, it's time for something more light-hearted. I recently began re-watching Entourage. When I first watched it, I liked it because it was one of the very few TV shows where guys are not depicted as complete idiots. Even Johnny Drama who is depicted as quite an idiot is more resourceful than the typical emasculated male in contemporary TV. This show is often mentioned in the "community" because it is allegedly focused on pickup, which is not true at all. Vinnie gets laid because he is a Hollywood A-lister, chicks throw himself a him. His friends get laid because of him.  There is not much of value in this show if you think you would "learn" something with regards to interactions with women. Entourage provides you with plenty of examples of what not to do, though.

The Religion of Peace, Islam, culturally enriches Germany four times in one week --- this is what the politicians say

I thought that having three Muslims in one week go haywire in Germany was bad enough. Little did I know that while I was writing my article In case you consider moving to Germany yet another Muslim demonstrated that Islam is the religion of peace, and blew himself up. He killed himself and injured 15. Germany is indeed progressing. This was the first suicide bombing in Germany ever, and the fourth Muslim terrorist attack in Germany in one week, which is another record. I wonder what the next 'firsts' of our Muslim friends will be. I sense an enormous untapped potential.

In case you consider moving to Germany

Last year a guy from Eastern Europe emailed me, asking whether I think moving to Germany was a good idea. Long story short, the wrote he was an electrical engineer, two degrees, some job experience, and even knew some German. My short answer was a "no, most certainly not". Note that this was before those utterly brain-dead decisions regarding unrestrained mass immigration were made by the German political elite in 2015. These days, the answer would be more along the lines of "Are you fucking crazy?"

Let's paint in broad strokes: I think coming to Germany is only an attractive proposition if you lack any perspective back home, lack education and ambition, and want to live a life at subsistence level paid by the German taxpayer, possibly supplemented by some income from dealing drugs. In Berlin, politicians don't even bat an eye shelling out a few million Euros so that illegal immigrants can squat buildings. If your ambitions are that low, you would be in fantastic company because there are millions of you around already. The vast majority of the left likewise lives off handouts, so in that case, you really are all the same. Germany is going down the toilet faster than Sweden, but it will probably be another 20 to 30 years until it has reached shit hole levels.

A female commenter disagrees that men age slower than women

This is a brief post for a nice chuckle. Moments ago, an allegedly female anonymous commenter left the following on my 2013 post Why should it be "creepy" if an older guy takes a young woman? 

As a woman in her early 20s I can honestly say that it is definitely much more creepy and gross when an older guys tries to hit on me. Younger guys are generally fitter and I can relate to them more. When I see older guys trying to go after younger women my first thought is "player." Also I disagree that men age slower... I know several women who are several years OLDER than their partner and before I found out their age, I thought all of the women were actually younger than their partners. I guess its all a matter of experience and personal opinion, but I think when women say they like "older men" they usually mean just a few years older, not 15+ years older.

Let's make this brief:

This is why some guys get nowhere

There are very few blogs I follow, but there are a few I skim occasionally. In the latter category is a blog called Wall Street Playboys. Some of the posts made my bullshit sensor overheat, though, due to the frequently displayed naivety and some rather obvious contradictions. For instance, according to their online personae they are "ballers" and can afford to spend half the year abroad. On the other hand, they warn people that living it up in some South American cities can be expensive, which is why you should "pre-game", i.e. drink at your place. Baller enough to maintain two residences, but when it comes to drinks you suddenly need to watch where your benjamins go? But let's ignore that for now.

More interesting than some of their articles are the comments they are getting, albeit it is not always easy to tell whether people post some nonsense in an attempt to bust the balls of the Wall St. Playboys, or whether they are serious. Here is one example that is very relevant to pickup (side note: there is quite some overlap between the mindset needed to become financially stable and having a decent sex life, but that may be a topic for another day).

Grey Zone Girls

Today there was a new comment by "ERJAN" on my blog post An RSD Escape Story, which was a submission from C. It is an issue I have discussed before, but it is an important one, so it can't hurt to discuss it again. So, let's get right to it:
hey, check out the passage from a great book "models:attraction through honesty" by mark manson. This is by far the most discerning, exposing and explaining book about game!

i think the author gets it wrong! mark manson says there are 3 types of girls:
1.girls who are into you from start - aka green zone
2. girls who maybe into you if you show great personality and seduce them - aka grey zone
3. girls who are not into you at all - red zone.

in this book , the point of game is to bang girls from grey zone!

girls that into you from the beginning - are easy to get! the point of game is to show that you are attractive to all greyzone girls, potential leads. if your game is good you can bang more girls from this area.

ofcourse it is easy to fuck a girl who is into you - you escalate! but true game is about seducing girls who are not into you , but find you cool after you run game on them!

We've discussed Mark Manson before. Suffice it to say that there are quite a few guys among my followers who told me that it took them a while to realize that he is peddling "feel-good" advice instead of dishing out some harsh truths. Well, once you are past needing to feel good about your insufficiencies and got ready for some realistic dating advice, check out my material instead.

Female "Billionaire" Lynn Tilton, female role model (for females) par excellence

An anonymous reader recently got torn a new one in the discussion that followed my post Patriarchy or Insignificance?. She (?) made the following rather amusing statement:
There are also women are a more "masculine" psychologically and are very high achievers and bad-asses (one billionaire Lynn Tilton comes to mind). They are a minority but they are out there, the exception disproves the rule.
Exceptions prove the rule, but you can't expect that a cuck/lefty/feminist knows anything about statistics. Anyway, I was not familiar with Lynn Tilton, but I had the strong suspicion that if she really was a self-made billionaire, we would all be very familiar with her name. Just recall how battalions of cucks and feminists have written masturbatory articles on Elizabeth Holmes for years -- until it emerged that she was a complete and utter fraud. Noticing this discrepancy, I spent a negligible amount of time on a search machine that is not called Google, which quickly led to some highly amusing reading.

Patriarchy or Insignificance?

This just popped up in my Facebook feed: the guitarist of a historically unimportant punk band named The Slits (this is about as creative as calling your all-chick band Hole) was upset because a text in an exhibition mentioned The Sex Pistols, The Clash and the Buzzcocks, but not hers, so she took matters in her own hands:

This is what happens to Beta Males on Tinder

Women have fully taken their dating game to Tinder, i.e. get attention from losers, hope that some hot stud wants to bang them, and extract money as well as services out of the "bottom 90%" of men. This is apparently how a rather unattractive woman close to 50 views the world. Surprisingly, there is no shortage of chumps.

Let's quote the NY Post:
When Fiona Bloom needed an air conditioner installed in her Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, apartment three weeks ago, she went on Tinder.

The 47-year-old, who has been dating in NYC for the past 20 years, decided to put the app to use after being repeatedly disappointed by the city’s dating pool. “I’ve tried speed dating and all the dating apps, but every time I put my real age, all I get are idiots and losers,” Bloom, a publicist, tells The Post. “I figured, why not make them useful and have them help me around the house?”

Exercise: Why is this married guy fucked?

One issue I find fascinating is broken men and the excuses they make for perpetuating their misery. As such, time spent on r/marriage forum on Reddit tends to be time well-spent. What is even more shocking, though, is how other broken men (and parasitical women) are not only unwilling and unable to help, but instead give those brainwashed spineless men another beating.

Here's a funny one: guy has a lazy wife who doesn't want to work; they can't afford where they live and are close to financial ruin. Keep this summary in mind as you skim the comments. It's amusing, and sad at the same time, that the miserable guy isn't even upfront with how shitty his situation is. Of course, one has to think of the women!

PUAs and Entrepreneurship

On the recent post on  Reader Comment: Opinion on BradP reader MacDragard left the following note:
Aaron, what is your take on the recent shift of many of the big names in the PUA community shifting their focus to "entrepreneurship" training? I know it has been going on for a while now in the form of ex-PUA's shifting their focus to self-help and David DeAngelo went back to being Eban Pagan, but now RSD is really starting to go the whole entrepreneur skills route and now we have all these psudeo-entrepreneurs popping up that know everything about marketing but close to nothing about how to read and interpret financial data. It's like MLM without the opportunity to get paid and instead paying thousands of dollars more for training.

I was aware of "Eben Pagan's" move towards promoting pseudo-business courses, and I was occasionally pointed towards one or the other thread on the RSD form for laughs where some deluded moron talked about their great business plans, which tended to be modifications of putting a lemonade stand next to a busy road and dreaming of all the money flowing in because, obviously, everybody is a potential buyer.

What if you are attracted to all types of women?

An anonymous reader asked the following question in the current Open Thread:

I've read both your books: Minimal Game and Club Game. You suggest to pick a target market for women and dress yourself to attract them. However, what if you don't have a type of a woman in mind? What if you're attracted to all types?
Can you see what the issue here is?

Staying in shape while travelling

A reader asked, in The Open Thread: May 2016:

Does any of you guys have experience with staying in shape while holding a job that includes a lot of travelling?

I'm really into strength training. Kind of need it to stay sane. That goes along with a good diet (meaning I'm (pre)cooking 99% of my meals).

Now I got offered a well payed position as a consultant which requires up to 40% travelling. Has one of you guys been able to follow a strength training program while travelling alone?

Since the entire work week consists of 100%, 40% means two days on the road. If your company sends you somewhere else via train or plane, and you have to travel the day before, those two days may easily cost you four days. Let's say you're sent off on Wednesday, after work. You catch a plane, sleep at a hotel, and work for two days at a client's site. You travel back on Friday. It's not easy to hit your fitness goals given those constraints. In fact, you will have to compromise.

Reader Comment: Opinion on BradP

I don't bother much exposing PUAs these days since the damage has been done and the old scene almost completely imploded. Any PUA that is still around is trying to position himself as a life coach of sorts. The old anti-PUA posts on this blog still get some traffic, though. Quite recently, "Trageliv" left a comment on BradP, I'm onto you!Have a look. One issue I have not previously talked much about, but which I have noticed, is that PUAs seem to exploit, deliberately or accidentally, exploit certain personality traits. That reader, for instance, seemed to have been trapped in a "cult" due to a certain void in his life. After all, you don't start looking up to some "guru" for answers if your life is going well. The original post follows. Feel free to comment below.

Brad P definitely engages in fraudulent behavior.

The newsletters are being written by someone else, but signed Brad P - fraudulent (source: one of the coaches). After knowing this is Brad Ps character, who knows if it's even Brad P that has been posting on the forum?

After being named the worlds #1 PUA by some organization back in 2007 - 9 years ago ! - he still uses it in marketing - perhaps not directly fraudulent but shady. Definitely creepy and self-boosting. The danger is a lot of people on the forum actually think brad p is the #1 PUA in the world. I did too. But the only source I've heard this from is himself.

Brief Update

I've been very busy the last two months, but things are starting to look a bit better again. I'll soon get a bit more active again.

The Open Thread: July 2016

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, if 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.
