douchebaggery men who should not ever be with women ever misogyny PUA

PUAs invade OkCupid!

Honestly, this would freak me the fuck out too.

Over on Buzzzfeed, a couple of interesting pieces on the fine art of online pickup artistry.

Kelly Bourdet looks at some of the online PUA gurus and their teachings, noting that

Online pick-up artistry has taken the original aims of IRL pick-up — to develop general tactics and techniques for attracting and bedding women— one step further. One dehumanizing step further. Now, instead of “peacocking” (wearing gaudy outfits to demonstrate Alpha status) in bars and using tired negs, we have them deconstructing every aspect of online persona and communication to create sleek, marketing packages of human beings to sell to one another.

In an even more entertaining companion piece, Ouiser Boudreaux (AKA the Annals of Online Dating gal) reports on some of the actual terrible things these online PUAs write to women in an attempt to “neg” them into their IRL beds.  Like “nice headband, bitch,” or “Lol, you look like a space commando.” Or this little passive-aggressive masterpiece:

You nearly have a perfect lack of grace. What happens when you realize only the also ran hotties slum it in brooklyn? Somebody who says they’re not good at being surface and rattles off a list of authors read mostly in high school english classes is nothing but surface. Your profile is among the most trite and cliche i’ve come across. which is a compliment of sorts, though keep in mind, you’re not in kansas anymore. You know who else won’t deal with a narcissist? just look in the mirror to find the answer: another narcissist.

None of these worked, in case you’re wondering.

I don’t think that the latter quote is a neg in the classic sense. There seems to be a phenomenon where men on dating sites just randomly cruise around insulting women who they deem insufficiently fuckable/compliant/whatever. They don’t seem to have any intention of getting them into bed, it’s just a toxic combination of boredom, entitlement, and nastiness.

This is just proof of PUAs are growing in number as more people realize the truth: that the pick-up art is the best way to attract the fairer sex. Only tease because he is afraid of this. The women here at this site are afraid of their own subconscious, because deep down they know your wishes into reality, to be taken by a strong man. Men here at this side are afraid that is too BETA to be real PUAs. They really are. Soon take over and run out feminists.

I think something is wrong with this site. My comments are not shown. Probably not be fixed because you are too BETA to know how computers work. If I was the one in charge of this site, all comments would always be displayed.

Its not being incoherent, it is having a more scholarly tone. I am sorry you’re too BETA to comprehend. It’s how I write because it sounds more educated.

My cat used to do the same thing, although not as cutely.

I can use grammar. It is a grammar of my own creating. Your womanly and/or BETA mind just can not comprehend how ALPHA someone must be to actually type intelligently and with efforted brilliance without being a pussified manslave.

“Forgot” implies that there was a time when he was familiar with the basic rules of grammer. I’m finding that difficult to imagine.

What does it mean, “to be taken by a strong man?” Domination? If that’s what you mean, terrence, then that’s wishful thinking on your part. If women wanted to be dominated by men, then we wouldn’t have fought so hard for equality.

No. I don’t have to email you anything. It is you who is the BETA. If you won’t take me off moderation, then I’m leaving. I am sorry anyone in disagreements with you must be termed a troll to your way of thinking but that is what gives you comforts in the cold nights so that it must be.

Well, that was short and not at all sweet. Did sound an awful lot like EN, though.

There is no difference between it’s versus its. ITS just a matter of which you find more preferring in the likely way. IT’S about having the creativity to think outside of the box and form thought in a convincing and special way, a way that says your not bound by common BETA rules but at the same time displays wit and poetry. IT’S a delicate dance to be completed. Being a “grammar nazi” turns women OFF because it shows, you are too in love with rules of the world to be in love with her. It is failing a major shit test.

Can you troll your own website? If you’re posting to your own site, under another name, that’s sockpuppetry. Of course, making up fake names to post mean shit-stirring things to your own website would be an even more colossal waste of time than sock-ing.

I’m attempting to force logic onto a system not designed to accept it aren’t I.

Sounds like Terrence is falling into the old PUA trap of going several negs too far. No on-line dating success for you!

mythago

WTF. Did we just get trolled by Mojo Jojo?

re OKCupid, those don’t sound like negs. Negs are supposed to be a little bit of an insult but phrased in a way that makes it difficult to all it that. “Nice headband, bitch” is an insult, not a neg. A neg would be, I dunno, “Nice headband, it really hides the way your forehead is a little too big.”

Mytha, there’s alos the classic “nice nails, are they real?” neg, which seriously? I’ve never had a guy pay attention to my nails.

CassandraSays

Dear PUA’s, please note for future reference – “nice boobs, how much did you pay for them?” or any similar neg based on implying that a woman’s boobs are too big to be real, said to a woman who does not have implants, will make her laugh in your face, and then tell all her friends so that they spend the rest of the evening pointing at you and laughing too.

@hellkell: it’s also particularly stupid, as it assumes women think having nail extensions is shameful.

I didn’t mean to butcher your name like that in my previous comment, Mythago.

You’re right. They think fake nails/hair/boobs are all about shame. God forbid a woman does something about her appearance soley for herself.

There’s a kernel of truth in this, in that it takes a very strong grasp of the rules to break them in a way that can be good writing. Allegedly, James Joyce managed it (Allegedly because seriously now…), Shakespeare verbed quite a few words, etc. That’s not you though. You’re just incoherent.

If you’re fake, I guess that was good enough.

Probably not be fixed because you are too BETA to know how computers work

Did computer nerds become Alphas at some point?

If I was the one in charge of this site, all comments would always be displayed.

Roissy is supposedly alpha in your inane ranking systems, he certainly doesn’t do that XD

Its not being incoherent, it is having a more scholarly tone.

Even if that were true (Oh GOD is it not. My awesome composition professor would laugh in your face if you called this a ‘scholarly tone’), this isn’t a research paper, and as such a scholarly tone would not necessarily be appropriate.

Terrence: The hell? Is there an actual sentence in there?

I think you are trying to say the men here can’t get any? Or at least they can’t get as many as the PUAs claim to be getting.

So what?

The question shouldn’t be “how many people” someone is sleeping with but how much they get out of it.

Wait, I just saw your follow up:

Its not being incoherent, it is having a more scholarly tone. I am sorry you’re too BETA to comprehend. It’s how I write because it sounds more educated.

More educated than what? Seriously dude, try for the basics (subject, verb, object) and learn to master them before you try for something more subtle, (say a comparative clause, or a verbal adverb. With work you can manage things like the subjunctive mood).

But making that sort of a hash of what I presume to be your mother tongue… and then trying to lord your superior education over us.

It is to laugh.
