I recently received an email from reader and occasional commenter captainahags titled “Please take this idiot apart!” The post in question is by Matt Forney, a self-published “entrepreneur” who seems to have taken bragging “pick-up artists” seriously when they said there was money in all those poor, lonely guys on the internet. So last year he started up a blog to test the idea that you can publish any old crap, call it “game”, and make money. He’s already put out a “best of” book.
The post in question is a perfect example of “any old crap”. It’s whiny, contradictory, and backed up by fuck all. But here. Rather that tell you about it, let’s show you what flies in PUA land–with commentary, because it wasn’t the post that sent captainahags to me as much as the fact that Forney doesn’t allow critical comments on his blog.
I’m just gonna come out and say it: I love insecure women.
Boy, dude, that’s so brave. Your audience of insecure guys is going to turn around and eat you for making daring statements like that. We’ll put some flowers on your grave.
Whenever a girl I’m talking to brags about how she’s “confident” and “strong,” I can feel my dick deflating like a punctured tire. I’d still bang her, of course; a repellent personality doesn’t negate the fact that she has a slammin’ body. But a crucial part of the attraction is lost. I’d be less offended if she ripped a fart in my face.
Note that Forney doesn’t say he has had sex with strong, confident women. He simply would if he were given the opportunity. Any opportunity. We can further tell that this is a hypothetical because he hasn’t figured out that his limp dick would present him with a problem. What’s he going to do, just pleasure her? Not our little PUA.
The idea that women should have self-esteem or need it, beyond a low baseline to ensure they don’t commit suicide or become psycho stalkers, is one of the most disastrous social engineering experiments of the modern era. A woman with excessive confidence is like a man with a vagina. It’s an attribute that is at best superfluous and at worst prevents women from fulfilling their natural biological and social functions.
I’ve probably met one or two men with vaginas. They seem to get along just fine, though I haven’t been so nosy as to ask. Nor am I aware that they prevent women “from fulfilling their natural biological and social functions.” Oh, Forney means that the only analogy he could come up with is crap? Why doesn’t this surprise me.
In order for America to right itself, there needs to be a massive and concerted war on female self-esteem.
Yes, that would end the shutdown posthaste. Or maybe Forney means he wouldn’t have to travel outside the country for sex. I hear Denmark is nice.
From the moment they’re old enough to speak, girls in America are bombarded with propaganda that artificially boosts their self-esteem. They’re told that they’re shpecial and you-nique because they have an extra X chromosome. They’re told that they’re smart, that they can do anything, that they deserve respect merely for existing.
You’ll notice the entire lack of citations to back up any of this. That would be because anyone whose qualifications for opining on the topic consist of more than “I have a blog!” recognizes that:
- Boys receive the same messages, except for that one about chromosomes. Nobody tells kids how awesome their chromosomes are, except some weird-ass racists. And even they congratulate the parents.
- Girls are bombarded with messages that they can’t do various things, generally those that result in high-paying jobs. The programs that Forney complains about here are designed to combat those messages.
- Everybody deserves some respect for just existing. Of course, it’s possible to lose that by, say, writing crappy blog posts that expose your complete inability to make a reasoned argument.
They’re encouraged to derive self-worth not from their inherent feminine nature but from their college degree, their job or the other illusory trappings of achievement in a man’s world.
As it turns out, self-worth is not the only measure of worth at stake here. When women’s education and earning power are increased, their health and the health of their partners and children improves. Their communities (yes, even the men) experience less poverty. Educated women hold more political power.
Of course, all of this takes a back seat to Forney and his limp dick.
Combine this with the white-knighting tendencies of fathers and the sexual attention that attractive girls already get from puberty forward and you have a complete social meltdown in the making.
Mothers. So passive. So notorious for just letting anything happen to their kids. It’s as though Forney has never heard of the concept of controls, has no idea that when he says something about one gender, he should maybe look over to see whether other genders do exactly the same thing. Or maybe he does, but telling us would spoil even this poor approximation of an argument.
Oh, you attractive girls. Shame on you for making Forney feel so insignificant. He’s so helpless around you he can’t even think straight. Why else would he think all that attention he’s forced on you since junior high is a boost to your self-esteem rather than blatant sexual harassment? Oh, right. There’s all that desperate wishing he does.
Here are my reasons why girls should be discouraged from being confident.
There are three “reasons” Forney gives. We’ll take those one by one in subsequent posts. I wouldn’t want anyone to have to read to much of this crap at one time.
