Response to Vox ‘In Praise of Snake-Hipped Women’

Although Vox Day is usually on point with what he writes about when he’s not writing about the ongoing drama in the leftist cronyism in modern Sci-fi circle, I felt I should examine this post in particular.

It’s no secret that I have always tended to prefer slender women. Not for me the over-lush curves of the Earth Matrons and their over-stuffed brassieres with fatty flesh spilling out from them on every side. Now, if the well-fed curvy girl turns your crank, that’s absolutely fine by me, but she tends to leave me, if not entirely cold, generally indifferent.

Vox has a preference for women who aren’t overweight. Who doesn’t?

The problem is he’s looked at this “study” that says women with wider hipbones tend to have more sex and one-night stands, and has confused wider hipbones for overweight/obese figures.

In nature, the most fertile and most reproductively fit are going to have the most suitors attracted to them. Most everyone with a functioning limbic and reptile brain is aimed at optimum survivability of the genes. And if a woman is sexually fit, it means everyone wants a piece of that. None of this is apologetics for promiscuity simply because it does not necessitate promiscuous behavior.

Hourglass-shaped women with child-bearing hipbones are pretty much at the reproductive apex in human female terms. They are literally big-boned as explained in the study itself.

Controlling for other correlates of cognitive ability, women with lower WHRs and their children have significantly higher cognitive test scores, and teenage mothers with lower WHRs and their children are protected from cognitive decrements associated with teen births. These findings support the idea that WHR reflects the availability of neurodevelopmental resources and thus offer a new explanation for men’s preference for low WHR.

Women with “Child bearing hips” (or at least narrow waists relative to wider hips) score higher on tests and have children who score higher on these tests as well. Good genes, good environment. In the above study, the child-bearing hips are not to be confused with adipose saddlebags which are usually obscured by a more rotund waistline. The low waist-hip ratio means the waist is narrow but the ass is “fat.”

A fat ass with a narrow waist signals health and fertility and better brain development for the offspring.

The brain/butt theory

What matters is the size of the hips relative to the waist. That’s because fat stored around the buttocks and thighs is high in omega-3 acids, which promote brain growth, while fat stored around the middle is loaded with omega-6 acids, which make your pants too tight.

Women with “pear” or “hourglass” shapes have greater reserves of omega-3, which nourishes their own brains and is essential to fetal brain development in the third trimester of pregnancy.

The other thing about wider pelvic bones/birth canals is that they can support larger heads. With bigger brain mass comes higher intelligence. Smaller hips and smaller fat deposits can only support development of smaller brain masses, and if that brain is too big for the hips, either you’re dead or the child is dead. It all makes sense when you look at the bigger picture. If you’re choosing a mate you want to choose one that would give your children excellent traits.

Humans owe super brains to women’s childbearing hips

Human intelligence developed because our female ancestors had wide hips, new research suggests.

Homo erectus, a primitive relative of modern humans, had wider hips than previously believed, scientists have discovered.

This means they could give birth to babies with large brains, which allowed intelligent human to evolve.

Because of all this, I wouldn’t go so far to say as women with these traits are sluts just because one magazine maligned them. Maybe the women with wider hipbones are subject to more sexual propositions than other women because of their visible reproductive fitness. Perhaps they are asked whether or not to become the slut more often than others, or maybe they feel they can afford it thanks to prophylactics.

Of course an ugly duckling without a feminine body is going to be less propositioned and therefore has less opportunities to be the slut. But far too often have I witnessed that women with “snake hips” tend to be the sluttier ones, at least when accompanied by masculine digit ratio, jawline, and shoulder width. Even this study hints this:

Promiscuity is related to masculine and feminine body traits in both men and women: Evidence from Brazilian and Czech samples.

[...]Moreover, another line of evidence shows that more promiscuous women are rather sex-atypical.

Actual healthy curves are okay on a woman who can take care of herself and knows how to eat well. Not feminist “curves,” but actual feminine curves like the Venus Kallipygos with feminine body yet a narrow waist.

There is still no excuse for a rotund waist or being obese — it betrays a woman’s elevated stress hormone levels and her lack of reproductive fitness. And we all know that a fat waist and high-stress prenatal environment makes her kids fucked up.

I suspect this article Vox was writing about had the intent to demonize feminine women in the way a previous study was meant to demonize masculine “oppressive” “sexist” men for preferring feminine women with T&A:

Men’s Oppressive Beliefs Predict Their Breast Size Preferences in Women

Results showed that medium breasts were rated most frequent as attractive (32.7 %), followed by large (24.4 %) and very large (19.1 %) breasts. Further analyses showed that men’s preferences for larger female breasts were significantly associated with a greater tendency to be benevolently sexist, to objectify women, and to be hostile towards women.

Ultimately, it’s a matter of pragmatism. You can have your hourglassed Venus Callipyge whom everyone wants a piece of and keep her under tight reins, or a plain Jane woman with a body like Olive Oyl whom no one passes a second glance at and you do not have to worry about as much. (or maybe she worries because she can’t pop out babies left and right. who knows)

In the case of the latter, the words of the famous song by Jimmy Soul come to mind: “If you want to be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife.” Whether a woman is promiscuous or not or becomes promiscuous is also a function of her culture, her peer group and the kind of household she was raised in. We’re dealing with a no-consequence culture for sexuality whether baby’s got back or not.

Transhumanism, Rob Rhinehart and the “Soylent” Crap

Not long ago there was a bit of fanfare about some guy named Rob Rhinehart and his transhumanist-oriented attempt to make a food product without all of that complicated food/eating junk.

Last year I also penned a quick piece on the product and its creator, unimaginatively named “Rob Rhinehart is an Idiot,” taking the piss out of Rob and his Soylent “food substitute” product (no hard feelings, bud).

In re-reading it again almost a year later, I know that I rushed through it and it wasn’t refined or as coherent as it should have been. The recent comments from the Rob Rhinehart fanboys were amusing too. So here’s a few thoughts I felt I should dump in this longer, meatier post.

What is Transhumanism?

Transhumanism is a futuristic materialist and humanist philosophy with origins in science fiction. Because it appeals strongly to liberal equalists and humanists, it is the pop philosophy du jour.

Transhumanists push forth the idea that the human condition can be transformed, or that one can go “beyond human” using emerging technologies made of Greek-based words like “cybernetics” and “cryogenics.” Usually transhumanism encompasses “radical” ideas like eternal life, superpowers, or disembodied consciousness: basically a secularized religion or ideology for the people of the future.

(See The Woo of Transhumanism)

The transhumanist God just happens to be material technology and with themselves as the lords and saviors, reaping all of the external personal development without the inner growth or transformation it takes to get there (like the film Lucy). Then they believe that anyone who embraces it will have equal access to this technology, nevermind that this idea is often used to placate the masses while the haves keep it away from the have-nots. “You can gain entry to heaven if you pay your tithe.” This is the premise to the recent film Elysium.

It’s interesting too that a lot of films coming out lately are exploring these concepts, like Lucy and Transcendence, planting those transhumanist seeds in our minds: either they want to sell this concept to us, or the rich and powerful fantasize about these things a lot.

In mentioning transhumanism in this manner, I expect a lot of zealous comments like I received when I wrote my post about incels (involuntary celibates) who want to forcefully push their perspective.

Transhumanism and ego

As a facet of many sci-fi stories, transhumanism sounds awesome. Mostly though, it’s a catchall label for science fiction concepts.

Transhumanists themselves though? They’re afraid of their humanity, afraid of their limitations, afraid of their weaknesses. They are afraid to transform themselves, confront their fears and grow as people. Instead they want their lord and savior — electronic technology — to check for monsters under the bed and kiss them good night. Technology will improve them, rather than using technology to improve themselves, and they hide all of this behind the banner of “progression.”

The transhumanists assume the role as harbingers of true technological progression and advancement to distract themselves from the fact that they’re gonna die like the rest of us. Their detractors are automatically Luddites and primitivists who are “holding back humanity.” Remember, they represent the “good side” in their own eyes.

Knowing they will be the first to embrace the transhumanist revolution (in case the singularity doesn’t happen) before the rest of us plebeians, they want to secure the power and status before everyone else.

It’s not surprising that transhumanism seems to be primarily ego-driven and materialist (only material reality is real).

Why did I pick on Soylent?

There is nothing inherently wrong with the Soylent product itself. The problem is in the marketing and the philosophy behind it. If it were marketed like an affordable protein powder or “meal replacement” I would totally use something like Soylent to get extra nutritious calories in my diet.

Similarly, dudes would use it to hella bulk in the gym if it were much better than the other products that were already out there. It’s hardly a new product, it’s a glorified brotein shake that happens to be pushing a “revolutionary” ideology.

My late great grandmother used to drink those cans of Ensure meal replacements to meet her calorie requirements. Babies drink baby formula when there isn’t any titty to go around. This isn’t too much different, except none of these products claimed to be food for people too busy to have food.

No human is that busy. And if they are, they have other people dealing with that for them. Cooking their food, doing their laundry, and so on.

Therefore, Soylent is more about the marketing and ideology than the product. It seems to be aimed mainly at the transhumanist niche who feel they are just a few steps short of getting their food pumped directly into their bionic stomach.

I suspect that after several millenia (sic) of only eating soylent (highly unlikely) our bodies will become to evolve and feature less and less teeth, maybe removing them altogether.

- Commenter who doesn’t understand how selection comes into play for evolution

Maybe they are, who knows. Rob went to the extent of having the FDA certify Soylent as a food product instead of labeling it a supplement like everyone else. Maybe the astronauts can use it like Tang, that is if we ever go beyond the International Space Station and NASA survives the budget cuts.

Soylent and Fast Food – Two Sides of the Same Coin

An important thing I didn’t mention in my previous article about Soylent was that Soylent and processed “convenience” foods are two polar extremes on a spectrum of what constitutes “nourishing food.”

The industrialized food system that Rob has criticized on his blog is responsible for making over-processed food-like products for our convenience that entice our senses and satiate our appetites for the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer.

Rob’s Soylent product is the inverse of these nutritionally void food-like products: Soylent is all of the nutrition of food without the food. A glorified baby formula, and just as bland, lifeless and colorless. However, like fast food, Soylent lacks all of the subtle nutrients like terpenes, aroma compounds and other complex phytochemicals found in whole and raw foods.

Both fast food and Soylent come from the same contrived, profit-based manufacturing systems seeking to divide and conquer what we traditionally thought of as “food” in order to fool us into thinking we’re buying separate and unique products. All of the form, all of the substance, none of the spirit.

The Joy of Food and Cooking

To most casual food comes frozen “ready-to-eat” and individually packaged with seasoning packets and microwave instructions.  They turn to these easily consumed meals because they assume preparing food at home is an arduous complicated task.  Cooking should be like your perfect pair of jeans; a little dingy, but endlessly comfortable, and always there for you.  It is not a hard rigorous science that must be studied, but an art and a skill that is developed over time.

- The Chef in Jeans, Cooking and the Modern Man

Rob, the creator of Soylent, does not deny himself the joy of good food when it’s around and someone else has prepared it, but he relies primarily on his Soylent formula for the sake of daily sustenance and for its convenience.

For humans in most cultures, food is an integral part of ritual, and part of what makes cultures unique is their approach to sustenance. You are what you eat, yadda yadda.

For example, the preparations before the hunt, the prayer before supper, the 40 days of fasting for Lent or the month of fasting for Ramadan… the warmth and aroma of feasts like Thanksgiving or Christmas shared with friends and family, or the scent of hickory smoked brisket over a pint of cold microbrew beer at the end of summertime — Soylent cannot hope or claim to replace these subjective shared ritual and cultural experiences that are as integral to eating as they are to the human condition.

Soylent is purely for automatons and their overlords who are already above and beyond humanity. They are colonizing the solar system and terraforming unknown worlds with their powdered sustenance as we speak. They have no need for the frivolities of ritual or things like “flavor” and “experience.”

Well, not really. But if you and your life are so dysfunctional that you no longer want to bother eating convenience foods of dubious nutritional value only to throw in the towel and say “might as well just get this powdered baby milk so I can keep coding uninterrupted,” you need to learn some time management skills. Unless you’re plugged into the Matrix and get all of your nutritional needs thruogh an IV, set aside a couple hours a month to learn to cook, it’s not that hard.

The death of food, the death of culture

Perhaps the voluntary abandonment of food ritual for convenience products like Big Macs and Soylent is a sign that globalization is killing off culture.

Instead of understanding where foods come from and why, we instead enjoy the multicultural smorgasbord that is around for our taking. Undeniably, they are good foods, but you can eat Ethiopian food one night and go next door for some Thai in some neighborhoods. SWPLs eat it up without understanding the deeper implications of it all. Culture loses its context and value, and culture itself becomes lost.

Superior alternatives to Soylent

Now this article would be pointless without any practical takeaways. Here are some alternatives to Soylent’s nutritional convenience.

Alternative #1 – If cooking takes too much time, offload it onto someone else

Soylent is already an offloading of time and effort to the manufacturers of the product ingredients. Much like going to a restaurant or buying takeout, it’s the same deal. You’re paying someone else to do that work for you. It’s hardly revolutionary.

If you don’t want to hire a professional chef, get a g/f who lives in and cook for you.

“If he had a woman to cook for him”…he wouldn’t be complaining? Sexist much?

- A female commeter on my RoK article before Roosh wisely banned women from commenting

Hey, all the women I know are great cooks. Maybe your mother never cooked for you, or you never learned to cook?

Alternative #2 – Make your own convenience foods

If the pragmatism of drinking your sustenance appeals to you, and making a meal 3x a day sounds like a lot of work but you do not want to compromise on nutrition or flavor, look into juicing, stews, chili and protein powders and shakes.

Stews and soups are ancient and traditional convenience foods. You can make them in bulk, they are highly nourishing, and they do not spoil as easily as fresh food under optimal storage conditions.

You can make huge batches of soup or stew once or twice a month and toss the extras in some freezer bags, and thaw out the servings as you need them. No food going bad, no needing to wash dishes by hand (especially if you have a dishwasher and know how to clean up after prep + cooking) or at least not that many if you cook big batches. If you cook big meals for yourself every day and find yourself wanting more time, you are just an inefficient person.

I am a very good cook, but that doesn’t mean I want to cook 21+ meals a week, clean up after 21+ meals a week, and go out shopping for ingredients that go bad if not used on time.

- A commenter on the RoK article who was unable to do the things he loved before Soylent gave him all the free time in the world.

If you are a single person you will have a variety of tasty, nourishing food for months. Plus if you use pressure cookers or slow cookers, you can get more done in less time.

The technology of the past is also the technology of the future, and it’s available to all of us equally right this very moment. No ponytailed Aubrey De Grey or some SWPL nerd fantasy, it’s here and now if we choose to take it.

You have to do a little work and think long-term but this is the kind of entry-level exercise in self discipline and thinking ahead that will nourish your mind, your body, your schedule and your wallet. Thaw last month’s stew, reheat it, and you’re done. You have become the man of the future.

Stews, soups and chili

Put any of these in a pressure cooker and it’ll be done in less than 30 minutes usually.

End of a life cycle

We’ve been seeing this happen for a while now. Here’s all of the truth out in the open, in its hideous glory:

  • TheRawness: Update and Questions (published 2012)

    The typical “it’s us against them” shtick. The saviors versus the villains. The enlightened versus the ignorant. The truthtelling, victimized warriors of political incorrectness versus the lying elite overlords of political correctness. The lone Byronic hero who discovers everything he believes is a lie and must now embark on his lonely, heroic quest to fight for the cause of truth against insurmountable odds, fighting an army composed of feminists, white knights, beta males, liberals, traditional conservatives, or whatever other bogeymen he concocted to feel superior to, armed only with his newfound knowledge of evolutionary psychology and his seduction skills. It’s the narrative that makes life easiest for a certain type of reader and offers the most ego [protection]. It’s the narrative that makes him feel most comfortable once he plugs himself into it and makes the world make the kind of sense he wants it to make.

  • The Manosphere is Lost (published 2013)

    I predict within a couple years, the word “manosphere” will attract as much stench as the word “PUA.” There are two reasons for it: (1) The arrival of geeks who have no game, and (2) The infiltration of women.

    There were three guys who first noticed this decline: Bronan, Danger & Play, and Nate. They mocked the “manospambots,” their obsession with the concepts “hypergamy” and “solipsism,” and their flocking to a community not for their own betterment but to rationalize their failures. Many of these new arrivals are married and so have a natural hostility to game and the bachelor’s option to sleep with more than one woman per year.

    The flood of these beta males, who have never approached a woman in their lives, coincided with the arrival of women. It’s known that women try to poison places where men congregate, but trailing them was a long line of beta males and white knights who are desperate for their attention. It becomes a feedback loop where the arrival of women encourages more weak men to follow which then encourages even more women to come. Instead of keeping them out, some manosphere veterans are welcoming them with open arms. There is a large subset of men who now participate in the sphere primarily to get female commenter attention. It’s pathetic.

  • Manosphere Victim Complex?

    The only issue is with any large movement or group is that it inevitably gets diluted by the lowest common denominator, that is, a group is only as strong as its weakest members. That and the tendency of knowledge to be hoarded or kept away from the population at large by more unscrupulous types.

  • The Manosphere is Dead, and You Have Killed It (published 2014)

    The manosphere today is primarily comprised of losers, weirdos and freaks. Cuckold fetishists who orbit Red Pill Women™ begging for stories of them getting fucked by their oh-so-alpha hubbies. Keyboard players who’d rather hate-masturbate to the latest Jezebel article then do something interesting with their lives. 30-year old virgins who lecture other men about “hypergamy” and “solipsism.” Plain Jane groupies who flash their panties at men in exchange for little pats on the head. And they’ll all gladly support frauds, so long as those frauds tell them what they want to hear.

    The manosphere is the intellectual equivalent of plucking turds out of a toilet bowl, then waving them in everyone’s faces screaming “LOOK AT ALL THIS SHIT! DOESN’T THIS SUCK???!!1″

  • Why I am “Resigning” from the Manosphere (published 2014)

    Secondly, there are too many frauds in the manosphere to count.

    They are men with large followings who don’t get laid writing about charisma. There is a fool writing about TRT who takes counterfeit testosterone.

    Third, there are too many articles complaining about feminism.

    Fourth, the manosphere doesn’t stand for anything so much is stands against things.

    Take away articles about feminists, and what does the manosphere stand for?

    The manosphere is a reactionary movement. I am not a reactionary. I am a man of action.

The consensus here is that the so-called “manosphere” is dead. “Manosphere” was a term for a loose-knit network of bloggers and writers who roughly agreed on certain things.

When things die, they rot.

What is dead about the manosphere?

  • The rehashing of everything we already knew and bitched about pertaining to feminists
  • Pretentious fakers, whiners, and big talkers riding on coattails

This stuff has all been caricatured and ridiculed by people who disagree with what most of us know because frankly, it’s ridiculous. Despite this, the mentally retarded among us who lack self-awareness have been unable to divorce the container from the truth it contains, so they continue bandying on about “red pills” and such, and dwelling in the same primordial muck, never to evolve.

Just a proposed rule for anyone who ever planned on starting a “manosphere” blog:

Don’t promise anything you can’t back up.

Otherwise you get no substance, just a lot of hot air… This is something that megalomaniac narcissists and sociopaths are unable to resist doing in any venture, and it’s not unique to the “manosphere” at all.

If you don’t promise anything, you don’t have to deliver. It’s as simple as that.

If you absolutely have to turn to the “manosphere” to find friends or be accepted among otherwise healthy and normal people, then there is probably something wrong with you. Not that some of the writers here wouldn’t make good friends or aren’t healthy or normal, but based on the drama that transpired, it only reaffirms my hunch that there are very few writers I would be willing to meet in person.

When things start to rot, the parasites jump ship.

What is going to be left behind in the wake of the “manosphere”?

  • Vital truths pertaining to just about everything
  • Individuals who know and experienced these truths firsthand

This is what the so-called “manosphere” was like before it was inundated at least what I feel it was like when I began lurking sometime between ’09 and ’10. It was never really a “club” of any sort, much in the way that hardcore punk started. Because there is little ego-validation going around in the early life cycle, the group has a strong immunity.

Once it became inundated with people who saw only the form and got their egos some metaphorical blowjobs, they forgot all about the substance. Predictably so, it all went straight to the shitter. This is simply part of the natural life cycle of things.

As for the writers who aren’t here to puff themselves up and feel important about bullshit (big fish in a small pond syndrome), there will be a lot of confusion for people uncomfortable with change and having their egos fellated.

I see this upheaval as an opportunity for renewal, a re-evaluation of what we want to do, where we want to go, and where we are needed to contribute. When something dies, it means going back to the bare basics, taking with us what survived and was valuable from the beginning.

What will grow from this new fertile soil?

  • Individuals who have the means to understand and disseminate these truths in their own way
  • Individuals who can benefit from study and practical application of these truths

In time we’ll see who survives this little upheaval, with or without the “manosphere.”

For example, this blog could be gone tomorrow for all we know. My site could be gone in about a year when the domain name expires. I won’t cry, neither should you. Chances are I’ll be creating something else. Same goes for any other writer here worth their salt. Their projects will survive to stand another day, and it only goes to show how much integrity they had from the beginning.

This is an exciting time.

To Return of Kings readers and commenters

Take a deep breath. Don’t fall for the trollbait.

4chan seems to have picked up on Return of Kings and is having fun with how seriously some commenters take themselves and the discussions that happen at the bottom of the posts. They are posting to fuck around with you, not to have any real discussion.

The Navy Seal thing is a copypasta.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

New site: Anarcho-Introvert

This is more of an announcement than an actual post.

I just launched a new website called Anarcho-Introvert.

Obviously it’s aimed at introverts. If that’s your thing, be sure to check it out and sign up for the mailing list.

We have 1 post up, and I’m still setting up and tweaking some things on the site frontend.

In this site, I want to cover:

  • How to live effectively as an introvert
  • How to deal with extroverts and their world
  • All of the quirks and novelties we have to deal with as introverts
  • Game, lifehacks and other things for introverts

If you can write and you’re into doing guest posts, please get in touch. (Being an introvert is a prerequisite.)

Manosphere Victim Complex?

The title of this post is pointed more toward the victim complex at large on all sides, left or right, manosphere or not.

We see that there are those who blame feminists and minorities for all of their ills to the point that they begin to sound like the feminists who blame the patriarchy, or minorities who blame Whitey for all of their problems. Isn’t it absurd?

None of this is to acknowledge that there aren’t problems… it’s quite the contrary. There are many problems, many of which have some reasonable solutions.

But the overarching problem is the victim complex. It appears that some people actually seek to become victims.

If they aren’t victims, they can’t be the martyrs they envision themselves to be. The victim complex is a form of narcissism that actually denies itself the opportunity to empowerment, but rather seeks self-enfeeblement.

Perhaps this is a kind of mental neoteny, requiring others to wipe your ass, comb your hair and brush your teeth for you. There’s a kind of pathological learned helplessness that has swept through our society like wildfire, where nobody knows how to do anything for themselves, nor do they desire to do anything for themselves.

Where’s the root of the problem? Is it because it’s been encouraged to become a victim, where if you aren’t a victim your speech is ignored for more potent emotional stimulation?

I came across a “greentext” story last night that explained progressive websites in a nutshell:

  1. Put a cardboard box on your head
  2. Cry about your feels
  3. Listen to echo

This description is also a very accurate depiction of the victim complex, but what does it explain about it? The only conclusion I’ve been able to draw for myself is that the victim complex mentality doesn’t seek solutions, it only seeks validation.

The squeaky wheel gets the grease, but taken to an absurd level, the individual with the victim complex acts as if the wheel has to keep squeaking if it wants more and more grease.

Where does it end? My hunch is that it never ends unless the cries are ignored and the problem has to be fixed by the individual. It doesn’t help when the enfeebled cries of a self-victimizer are given legitimacy by our government or by other self-victimizers in tandem.

Back to the manosphere…

What does this have to do with the manosphere? I don’t see too much victim mentality here. Perhaps some of the complaints are legitimate obstacles to male goals. Not oppressions or victimizations, but obstacles that can be surmounted in a variety of ways:

  • Going to a jurisdiction where these obstacles no longer apply (MGTOW)
  • Changing the laws or circumstances creating these obstacles (MRA)

Eric over at runsonmagic supposes that manospherians don’t carry their own weight, that they don’t want to create lasting social change, but also explains that it’s in the nature of men not to change due to the futile nature of self-victimization, but to create instead, similar to what I’ve explained above.

Short of outright destroying those obstacles and rebuilding atop the ashes and rubble, taking your ball to play somewhere else has been a sensible solution. What Eric advocates however is taking the ball as a group and creating a “tribe” of sorts, an insular society that supports itself. It would be an interesting solution for people who don’t already have a tribe with friends and family, let alone friends or family who agree wholly with these beliefs.

Systems are not fixed. They are replaced. One tribe dissolves and another takes its place. The solution for the manosphere is to create a community and system that can replace the present one, and to start living in that system now, while slowly withdrawing support from the mainstream.

What makes the “tribe” more interesting however is that it’ll be a group of people who barely know each other but through their writings and that they happen to share similar beliefs. Assuming it doesn’t descend into a kumbaya commune or amount to the “Freemen on the land” movement which is ridiculed by the governing bodies that encounter these groups, it would be interesting to see, and even if it didn’t create any lasting change, they’ll be ahead of the game should any collapse arrive.

In lieu of that, perhaps we should form a secret club or gentleman’s society of sorts. The only issue is with any large movement or group is that it inevitably gets diluted by the lowest common denominator, that is, a group is only as strong as its weakest members. That and the tendency of knowledge to be hoarded or kept away from the population at large by more unscrupulous types.

Nonetheless, these are great ideas worth considering.

Incel – the anti-masculine lifestyle

So recently I came across the “incel” movement thanks to a reddit “todayilearned” post. Forgive me if the MAndrosphere has already covered it, but this is my first encounter.

christian-weston-chandler-03Assuming it’s not some elaborate ruse***, “Incel” is a movement despite what they want to label it, and the term “incel” is short for “involuntary celibacy.”

Here’s just the tip of the iceberg of the blogs:

“incel” is where reasonably healthy, sane and intelligent young men blame everyone for their failures, particularly with women, and they adopt the involuntary celibacy that comes from being physically or mentally disabled, trivializing the real physical conditions that people suffer for to cover up for their sloth and hubris.

Furthermore, the incels have an unhealthy fixation on sex, and because of their inability to have a healthy interaction with the opposite sex, they turn their efforts and energies outward instead of inward and focus it on others and blaming them, unlike a normal omega virgin who would remain blissfully unaware of his manboobed flesh prison.

This outward energy expenditure creates an inner psychic vacuum and leaves an empty void within that needs to be filled. This creates a victim mentality with the force of a black hole. It wants and wants and wants what it believes it’s owed, much more than any sane person could ever desire. Even a normal omega can get his jimmies out with masturbation.

Because of this victim (vacuum) mentality, the incels believe that the world practically owes them sex. They participated, they put in their effort, and they got nothing. Because of this, they want their condition to be recognized as legitimate rather than something that amounts to “welp, nothing I can do about it now. please treat me as special, normies.” which is essentially what it does amount to.

The ironic thing is that this mentality held by the incels is exactly the same mentality that feminists use. They blame everyone for their inadequacies but themselves, and they tell everyone they need to check their privilege while being wholly unable to see anything from another person’s perspective, and to realize that they’re not as caged in as they think they are.

Unlike early feminism however, and much like modern feminism, the incel movement will never gain any lasting legitimacy because it is fatally flawed.

What is the fatal flaw of incel-dom?

Incels lack the inner drive to power, and they have a complete inability to recognize their locus of control. To recognize that your problems originate from yourself is where you begin to empower yourself. People or “normies” won’t sympathize with their self-victimizing condition because men are doers and thinkers, not complainers.

“Normals” could put themselves in the incel’s shoes, but knowing that the incel cage is an illusion, they’ll say “fuck that.” This is why “normals” are reviled by “incels.” they’re like the elephant tied to a rope and a little tent spike in the ground. That big elephant could easily pull itself free, but it doesn’t know that it can because it doesn’t know anything else besides its little rope restraint that it grew up with and just got used to being restrained. The incels hate the “normals” because they see them roaming about freely, living “the dream” while they, the incels, are stuck to a tiny tent peg and can’t see why they can’t break free.

So why continue to rationalize a dead end? The ego is a powerful force in some people, and it can’t admit defeat to itself. They’ll tell themselves “hey, this isn’t so bad. i’m already here so why move?”

If you consider yourself an “incel,” do yourself a favor:

  • Don’t bother responding. I don’t grant platform for discussion to self-victimizers, only people who have made their own viable solutions to their problems
  • Read 30 Days of Discipline by Victor Pride and enact the principles he lays out. Check out his blog too if you don’t have money.
  • Read Bang by Roosh V. and start reading the archives at Chateau Heartiste whether or not you have money.
  • Check out my main site for supplements and hacks to change your life no matter how “abnormal” or broke you are
  • You can get all the information you need from the manosphere for free, it’s not that hard to use google on a game blog and go “<search term> site:<url.com>” to find what you need.

Barring some terrible physical disfigurement or disability, celibacy is not “involuntary.” There are people who are truly mentally or physically disabled, and given the opportunity, they wouldn’t take their “normal” status for granted or use “logic” to defend a fallacy-ridden lifestyle philosophy.

Humans are flexible, changeable, and malleable. If you can’t shape yourself, you’ll let the world shape you.

fat-to-fit

Long story short, people see you as ugly when you’re bigger. I was never the attractive one, always skipped over, always “friend zoned”. The friend zone exists by the way due to lack of confidence. This is very generic, but fake it until you make it. Stick that chin up and pretend you’re the fucking man/woman. When you believe in yourself, so do others.

I dropped the weight, my confidence peaked, I got an incredibly kind and beautiful girlfriend. Before I was ignored, now I am on two banners for our college’s website (the banners that rotate when you first land on the homepage) and the other day I was asked to look into a modeling contract from an agent at work (photography company). Things are great.

Is dating easier? Incredibly.

Does everyone seem shallow? You bet. The difference between fat me and “attractive” me is all aesthetics. I’m still a loser.

21 People On How Life Has Changed Since They Went From Ugly To Hot (A non-manosphere link)

The “manosphere” to me is about understanding your inner nature and transforming yourself into what you wish for your world to become. Current issues like the effects of liberal humanism, feminism, globalized corporatism and a shitty economy are merely the terrain we have to navigate to reach our goals, and the manosphere is merely custom-tailored to that, and is written by ordinary people who are concerned with those issues and their solutions.

Here today, gone tomorrow. Who gives a shit?

Whether the manosphere exists or not when feminism is gone and all our problems are magically solved, or whether you think the manosphere is a “scam” because your mom won’t spend her pocket money on your P90X DVDs and pickup artist fedora doesn’t matter. These victim rationalizations will never end, and the solutions to the problems incels complain about will always exist but in a different form.

Know that there will always be new, recurring issues to conquer. Time is cyclical and the problems will never end. Neither will the creative solutions, and they’re there if you seek the answers.

Recognize this and the world is your god damn oyster. Adapt and thrive. Fail to see this, fail to escape the prison that your hungry ego has created, and you will drown in your own tears and no one will miss you.

If you want a one-time, easy**** solution to “involuntary celibacy,” take some LSD or psilocybin or smoke a lot of weed and sit in a comfortable dark room and think about everything. your life, your desires, your beliefs. If you’re unsure, study about these drugs on erowid.org which is a scholarly site about psychoactive substances.

Slightly more difficult than taking drugs just once is learning to lucid dream. Try lucid dreaming while you continue to be an incel and think about that. You’ll see that phrase “living the dream” in a whole new light.

Footnotes

*** Incel could just be so unbelievable to me that I think it could be some kind of sockpuppeteering maneuver, possibly by feminists or tumblrina social justice warriors. But then again, they, like the incels, aren’t smart enough to see outside of their own self-victimization long enough to calculate something like this.

**** it’s only easy if you’re ready for your ego to die. this is not valid nor professional medical or psychological advice and your mileage may vary

Reddit Trolling 101 – Intro to Reddit and the Hivemind

Reddit is an interesting site. It took over Digg’s reign in the early 2000’s and is still growing today. It’s somewhat similar to an older site called Slashdot, with its comment voting system. One of the features it boasts is the ability to create subreddits, which are basically subfora for discussion on various topics. Just about any interest you have will have a subreddit. Even our own community has two main subreddits: /r/theredpill and /r/RedKings

The more well-established subreddits have their own insular cultures and share certain opinions on certain things, much like any other in-group. This can be good for community bonding, but when a single subreddit becomes one’s only community (even the only one IRL because you’re a lonely fuck) and only view of the world, you get an echo chamber that tells you what you want to hear so you can feel the same about something that may be completely unrealistic and crazy because you’ve insulated yourself from differing viewpoints that may challenge your fragile ego.

Reddit as a whole has a diverse group of people who hold different opinions and come from many walks of life, but the majority of reddit users are young suburban liberals. Though most users of the internet are white males, the ones on reddit tend to lean heavily left and will mercilessly destroy anyone who disagrees with them, or does not agree with their typical opinions. Consciously or not, they seek to be upvoted, and they seek group cohesion through the symbolic bond of sharing upvotes.

echo-chamber-man

This process destroys a diversity of opinion, and leaves people with a narrow viewpoint presented to them by suburban white liberal males. This is reflected on common and popular boards, where social justice warriors attempt to use these boards to advertise their agenda, such as /r/cringe or /r/todayilearned. In reddit terms, this subreddit echo chamber is called a “circlejerk.”

Contrary to Redditors are 4channers, whose beliefs are not in allegiance with anyone in particular. They give no platform to people who want to showcase their ego, so their beliefs inevitably echo those of the K-selected conservative type. Interesting, no?

btard-feminism

4chan /b/tard on feminism

On 4chan, each post gets an equal chance to be viewed by people no matter how ridiculous it is. No votes are there to sway your opinion toward that of the majority; you have to decide for yourself what to think on anything that is posted there. If you are female, you have to post tits or GTFO which nullifies the “im a girl plz give me attention” behavior. Your gender, your race and your beliefs are irrelevant. You are judged by the content of your post, and if you are the OP you are automatically a faggot unless you prove otherwise.

In short, Reddit is a bastion of liberals with weak but gigantic egos who absolutely require the vainglory of upvotes and approval of their peers, while 4chan is a fraternity of anonymous/pseudonymous independently-thinking conservative young men who don’t give the time of day to attention seekers and write fiction all of the time. Liberals abhor 4chan because it doesn’t magically give them the attention their fragile egos need. So naturally, they prefer Reddit.

shit reddit says

/r/ShitRedditSays, letting angry Redditors downvote what they couldn’t downvote before

Anyway… back to the Reddit hivemind. Because it’s operating on the flimsy hotbutton egos of liberals with computers, it’s actually highly responsive to cold and calculated expressions. This can be used to your advantage and to reap many lels.

To destroy someone on Reddit means to have the masses downvote them to irrelevance. Get enough downvotes and your comment is hidden by default. Upvoting something gives a comment or a post the spotlight, and the post threads with the highest votes are shown in descending order.

Whether or not your comment is infallible, people will think “I disagree with this even though I can’t say anything against it” and attempt to downvote your comment to irrelevance. Don’t worry when this happens, you will live to post another day.

Gaining hivemind approval

Here is what you need to say to reap the most “Karma points” and gain the approval of the hivemind:

  • Agree with anything that is in social justice in topic. Make it “insightful”, example for race-based topics: “Man, I wish these people knew how good they had it. I know I did, I’m white” Don’t be too wistful or white-guilty about it though.
  • Where appropriate, always agree and proclaim that religion is bullshit, especially christianity and its variants, but don’t shy away from islam
  • Always agree that women are still the most disadvantaged people in the world (even though they are the most privileged in the first world)
  • Always explain how people who believe in “right wing christian” beliefs (creationism, no gay marriage, et cetera) are morons even though you’ve likely never encountered these convenient strawmen in real life. Seriously, you can randomly spout off how these people suck in an irrelevant thread and you’ll get upvotes.
  • Always talk down on people who exclaim the risks of GMOs in foods, the risks of constant vaccinations, and so on
  • Always malign the “red pill” and anything perceived as contrary to the liberal hivemind
  • Call everyone who disagrees with you a euphoric fedora-wearer or some variant thereof, hinting at their neckbearddom or virginity. It’s the male parallel of “slut shaming” online.
  • Being vegan, gay, transsexual or female is an advantage. Always make it known that you belong to one or more of these groups.
  • Always be “lighthearted” and make no reservations on taking jabs at people who don’t agree with the hivemind
  • Puns are going out of fashion on Reddit, so be careful
  • Shorter and succinct comments are best, as are hella sick burns

Conversely, to get downvotes, you must do the following:

  • Explain the forbidden topics (gun freedom, “red pill,” masculinity, femininity, GMOs/vaccination, anything remotely religious or insightful) in a logical and reasoned manner
  • Explain the forbidden topics in an emotional manner
  • Explain your opinion on the forbidden topics in any way that isn’t negative toward them or the people who believe in them
  • Explain your experience as a person who is of European descent and/or male.
  • Ridicule anyone expressing one of the sacred reddit beliefs in LGBT, womens rights, and everything else the liberals believe in
  • Criticize any of the sacred liberal tenets
  • Give any platform or validity to anyone who would dare to criticize any of the hallowed liberal tenets
  • Use words and sentences that are too long, writing walls of text, and never linebreaking where appropriate

Get the picture? After a while you understand that in places where you’re not “safe” on reddit, it becomes an emotional contest of upvotes and downvotes rather than a place for simple discourse on a topic.

You may be wondering why I’m writing about this. I’ll explain why it’s relevant to the manosphere/androsphere in a following post.

Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad

What I learned from writing my first e-books

It’s been about a month since the Male Health Protocol and Testosterone Black Book were first released.

So here’s everything I learned on my own from this experience:

  • Start with a mailing list next time so readers will know when your books come out so they have the option to buy
  • Don’t worry about the book echoing some information you’ve already covered on your blog. They don’t want to google-fu their way to the golden nuggets of info.
  • IF you do echo any information, write it so that it flows together as a book
  • Remember that your reader wants to know EVERYTHING you know on the topic. my problem when writing my first book was that I was looking at it from how I wanted to read – keeping everything short, concise and to the point, like notes. The problem is some readers felt like the information was useful, but it wasn’t thorough enough, and I can see why now.
  • Who, what, when, where, why, how – if you don’t answer at least four of these, you’re doing it wrong.
  • Conversely, figure out how you can express the most useful information possible with the least words possible.
  • Revise and edit, revise and edit, and revise and edit again before you release it. The excitement of releasing my first set of books drove me to push it out a little prematurely.
  • Revise by putting the writings aside for a long time.
  • Get feedback. Revise again.
  • Hire someone to format your book layout for you on Fiverr. There are some talented designers on there who seem like they can do a great job. I thought I did okay on my own but I see there are more talented formatters out there.
  • Hire someone to write your squeeze page
  • Invest in the OptimizePress (to-do)
  • More dudes are interested in testosterone and sex rather than general health, judging by the number of sales of Testosterone Black Book over Male Health Protocol.
  • Affiliates can definitely drive sales. All affiliates (in total) have made over $200 for sales. Some more than others.
  • One or two people will be completely or utterly disappointed in their purchase, and will demand a refund without giving you a logical reason. Refund them anyway.
  • One or two people will be genuinely dissatisfied with the book and will be the best people who can tell you what you did wrong and what you did right. Refund them and thank them for their time.
  • Dissatisfied or not, ask your readers how they liked the book. Sellfy has a feature that lets you email everyone who purchased your product.
  • Generally most people will be happy with their purchase unless you’ve promised them something and did not deliver. Based on feedback, I feel like I delivered what I promised.

I think my biggest issue was just jumping head-first into writing, revising just a tiny bit and then releasing it. I had done little research on writing and releasing e-books prior to doing so. However, I did learn a lot from the whole process. With that, I will be continually improving the book since I’ve taken a step back and taken a long look at what I made, and figured out what I shouldn’t have done, what I should have written, and so on.

Writing, especially writing a book, is a lot of damn work and takes a lot of patience.

The books at the present moment are OK in my opinion, but I know I can make them better. I feel like I delivered what I promised, but I feel the need to deliver a lot more and give readers more bang for their buck. The information is good, but there’s so much more I know I can do now that I’ve dipped my feet in the water. It’s much more difficult than just writing a really long and thorough blog post, especially if you’re coming from writing blog posts and have never written a book before.

As for revising and editing, I feel like I’m ready to take a whack at it. Taking a month away from looking at your books or reading them really gets it out of your head so you can come back to it with a more objective mind. With all that said, if you’ve purchased the books already, you will be able to receive the updated versions at no extra charge when I release them.

As for using Sellfy as my sales platform, I’m considering moving to e-junkie even though it’s a paid service, it’s the same one that Victor Pride uses over at Bold and Determined, and the same service Roosh V uses to sell his e-books. e-junkie seems to have a lot more features, plus I want affiliates to be able to earn commission if they refer readers to my site in general and if they eventually purchase my product rather than having to sell the book on their own without my site in context, just to give a little more incentive for linking back to me.

Sellfy is okay, especially if you’re a software vendor or something, but it doesn’t integrate into your site that easily without a little elbow grease. I had to butcher a lot of HTML and CSS to get it to fit.

And that’s that. If you read the books, what did you think and what would you like to see in the revised version?

Review: Red Pill Orgasm by Halfbreed

Recently I got in touch with Halfbreed, a fellow writer over at redpillgame.com about checking out his new book Red Pill Orgasm. I decided “hell, why not?” and it ended up being one of the best guides I’ve come across in recent years.

What’s Red Pill Orgasm?

  • It’s a 96-page downloadable PDF e-book — read it on mobile or your computer
  • It takes you through the nitty-gritty of sexual intercourse with a woman…
  • …anatomy, foreplay, sex, climax, you name it
  • …it’s detailed enough for a beginner
  • …it contains enough information to teach an old dog some new tricks

Overall, I was impressed by this book and I’m glad that I had the opportunity to read through it and actually try many of the techniques out for myself. I’d say about half of it was review for me, but review keeps the knowledge fresh in your mind.

Red Pill Orgasm - How to give a woman the best orgasms of her life - by Halfbreed, Red Pill Game

My experience with Red Pill Orgasm

I’m not a sex master, nor do I bang a new girl every night, but it’s not my first rodeo either. That said, I learned a lot of interesting techniques and this book has just about anything for any man curious about sexual technique.If you’re new to sex (hey, everyone’s gotta start somewhere) Halfbreed doesn’t skimp here. He explains everything as if he were talking to a virginal man who had never taken Sex ed, let alone fingered a girl. Hell, I’ve done that before plenty of times and I still learned some new things.

If you’re the type who would be put off by how “analytical” it seems, just realize that once you’ve internalized Halfbreed’s tips and techniques you won’t even be thinking about it. It’s just like learning any new skill.

As far as sexual technique goes, inside Halfbreed covers:

  • Foreplay — women are water, men are fire — bring her to a simmer!
  • Oral sex — positions and techniques
  • Slow entry — a great way to transition from foreplay
  • “Screwing” — not what you think! It’s a technique.
  • Basic Sex Positions — Great if you don’t want to refer to the godawful techniques by Cosmo on the internet
  • The Sets of Nine — a great thrusting technique
  • Making It Last — techniques to delay ejaculation, great for premature ejaculators

First of all, I have to say that “The Sets of Nine” technique is killer! The way Halfbreed explained it was much better than a similar, more dated technique I had come across once before and never tried again until now. Make sure to lube it up though since it can get dry after a while. If she’s in the mood for hard-and-fast, save this one for a lazy night. (And I use lazy ironically since it’s a hell of a core workout.)

Interestingly, the book centers around the female orgasm. Men pretty much know how to have an orgasm for themselves, but women are usually out of luck.

Halfbreed explains that the orgasm keeps the girl coming back for more, making it a win-win for the both of you. In this regard, this makes men the sexual “gatekeepers” since female orgasm is like an arcane magical power to most men.

However, with Red Pill Orgasm, you don’t have to be a sexual wizard carrying a big staff. Whether you are a quick-fling kind of guy or you have a steady girl, an orgasm a day keeps the hamster at bay. What’s more, if you pick up a copy of this book, it’s a great excuse to try out and learn some new things.

In fact, there’s a lot of things I didn’t know about or need to try. Halfbreed wrote about some “energy techniques,” and I have yet to try it out, but don’t be fooled into thinking it’s just New Age woo-woo — A lot of these things are good for getting yourself out of your head and ready to shake the bed. In Red Pill Orgasm, there’s something for everyone, like the chapter on anal sex.

One other interesting thing is that Red Pill Orgasm also centers around themes of male dominance and its role in the bedroom. Halfbreed discusses this in terms of Game, relationships, and how sex plays a very central role for both the man and the woman. If this knowledge sounds oppressive to you, don’t read this book. But let me tell you, you’re missing out on some prime sexual knowledge.

Conclusion

Red Pill Orgasm is a great sexual guidebook for men from all walks of life. The author, Halfbreed, is experienced in just about everything he’s written about here, and he genuinely knows what he’s talking about.

If you’re like curious old me, you’ve probably pored through sex books and magazines like Maxim or even Cosmo looking for techniques and came short with irrelevant, non-factual and even dangerous information.

Don’t bother with those anymore and just download a copy of Red Pill Orgasm while it’s still just $20. You’ll thank yourself later.
