A douchebag’s lament: Pickup Artists have failed to tame the Wild American Bitch

Apparently these women defeated the Pickup Artists. Three cheers for them!
Evil women celebrating the defeat of the Pickup Artists

Well, it’s time for a little celebration, I guess. Because I’ve just received word — straight from the Manosphere itself — that feminism has defeated Pickup Artistry in the battle for control of America.

That, at least, is the message of a blog post from our old acquaintance Firepower. On his Eradica blog, he writes sadly that “[d]espite 15 years [of PUA] Feminism still rules America – NOT men. Certainly not puas.” The problem, to poor feminism-hating Firepower?

PUA didn’t make guys “men,” it made them better dudes.  It didn’t make them smarter – it made them dumber. Such blundering strategy is not Mastery, it is Foolery; especially in a country now based on, legislated and totally ruled by females – or call this state mentality, feminine values. …

Despite PUA being a potent strategy practiced since 2000, nothing has changed.  Those many tactics to tame The Wild American Bitch failed.

In fact, Firepower argues, these Wild Bitches are ever Wilder and Bitchier than they were before Game came along.

Females – girls especially – are far worse behaved now, after “the Game Era” than they were before.

Females today, are even louder, nastier, cuntier and more tattooed.  Game was supposed to give men the upper hand.   The last time I went to “the club,” women are still the loudest, drunkest, rudest, most profane entitled Princesses Of The Universe.  It is they who became Real Men by asserting their masculine qualities of dominance, power and intimidation – not boys.  Males just smile sweetly, simper – and wipe their girl’s puke hair.

Apparently I have had something to do with all this, although I haven’t been able to figure out enough of this paragraph to understand exactly what it is I’ve done:

The extreme is evidenced in the psycho Amanda Marcotte/Manboobs FFOL wing/falange and is why I find NF such a structural part of FFOL.  Game and pua gave the deactivated, unemployed big-mouthed fatties in storage something new to fight.  It is their resurrection:  Instead of marching in parades, they march as effective Courtroom/Legal System/Government leaders.  They have no need of combat, to write picket signs and post online when they now post statutes and write law.

From earlier in the post, and by checking Firepower’s little blog glossary, I’ve been able to determine that NF is short for “Neo Feminism” and FFOL for “Five-Fingered Fist of Liberalism.” Not that this really helps clear things up much.

Also, I’m not quite sure why Firepower has picked two bloggers to be representative of some “falange” that doesn’t need to post online because it can just write laws. Or why a white dude like myself is supposed to be involved with something (the “FFOL”) that Firepower thinks is a “United Front eradicating white males.”

In the end, Firepower declares that everyone is stupid, so fuck them.

[T]he females are indeed, completely corrupted – but so are the boys.  Both classes are stupid and unworthy because they are Murkans.  No great leaders or movements are born out of slop.

Speaking of slop, the comments to Firepower’s post are a virtual cesspool not only of misogyny but of virulent racism and homophobia as well. Oh, and some old-fashioned anti-Semitism to boot. If you venture into them, prepare for every sort of slur there is, as well as for an extended discussion of whether or not PUA has made men more “faggoty.”

This is what the “White Nationalist” wing of the Manosphere sounds like when it talks amongst itself.

EDIT: Fixed a word in the penultimate graf. Should have been “virulent racism,” obviously, and it now iw.

I don’t get what the issue is with tattoos on women… It seems like such a nonsensical thing to be upset about. Especially since they think women should be dressed to the nines, wearing makeup and high heels…

Aha! My tattoos are tattoos OF LIBERATION! And after the g0ys, I feel deep pride in being faggoty.

Also, does Five-Fingered-Fist of Liberation sound like a sexual act to anyone else? That or a move in some shounen anime where the characters HAVE to spout off about whatever they’re doing.

“Cuntier” is a fun, new word.

A manosphere manifesto would be nice. Are these fellas looking to get some action or to put men and women back into traditional gender roles? It seems like they are all dissatisfied and no of them really knows what they want. Some PUAs seem to be strictly interested in sex and the ways to obtain it at any cost, others attempt to use manipulative strategies to keep a romantic relationship, others seem to want to “go back to the good ol’ days.”

RE: SittieKitty

I don’t get it either. Obviously I’m not a woman, but I still got a surprising amount of resistance when I got tattooed. Our parents seemed to think that I was some insane influence, spurring their innocent daughter to get random tattoos without thinking, rather than that some folks here (including me) had wanted one for years. Our father later used my tattoos as evidence that I shouldn’t transition, because they were femmey. (I’ve got a phoenix on one shoulder, and a turtledove on the other.

I’m not going to get a tattoo (promises, promises … ) but I got no problem with tats in general.

Sometimes I see one that’s stupid, or pretentious, or something. A young man at the local pool this weekend had what I thought was a Death Star tattooed on his upper arm, but it turned out to be a yin-yang done in blue and slightly darker blue, with additional dots under each main dot. It was hard to read, is my point, which I think kind of defeats the purpose, doesn’t it?

The whole tattoo thing baffles me, especially since anthropological evidence for tattooing on people of all genders goes back literally thousands of years. And I get that until recently American people of a certain class/ socioeconomic status did not get tattooed, but that’s no longer the case and there’s nothing wrong with that.

In other news, the state nearly threw my deadbeat ex-SIL in jail yesterday for non-payment of child support (she hasn’t given my brother a nickel). My brother doesn’t want that — it won’t get him the support he needs to raise their children. So he asked them not to.

So there goes that bullshit MRA meme that “the State” is always on the woman’s side. “The State” has a vested interest in making sure that non-custodial parents, regardless of gender, pay for their kids, because there isn’t enough social services funding to go around.

Those sound awesome LBT! I have a few tattoos and I’ve had a number of people comment on how I shouldn’t because I’m a “woman” (I don’t bother correcting them, it’s a pain). And then, the most tattooed person I know personally is my aunt, and she gets them because they make her feel stronger – an idea I loved and she’s one of the few people who supported me in doing it. She has a dragon on her arm and she says every time she looks in the mirror and sees it she feels like she can take on the world. Actually, thinking about it, I prolly know more women who have tattoos then men… and all of the tattoos are awesome and have personal meaning. All of mine have personal meaning, and would pretty much mean nothing to anyone else if they got them. I feel like many people think people get permanent ink on their bodies as some sort of frivolous thing, not really thinking about it or anything.

This train of thought brought to you by a kitty…

Now I totally want to get my tattoo soon.

Sadly, I don’t like clubbing much. I’d love to upset PUA’s by being a “a wild german bitch” (though I’d rather be a wild pokemon, ambushing Puas out of the high grass!). I doubt misogynists of this sort like european women any more than american women.

Ah well, I’m still too scared of long lasting contact with needles to get tattooed. 🙁

Listening to people like you give back my faith in humanity. Seriously. All this hijab-niqab problem many Westerners have, to the point they are just being plain intolerant and quite ridiculous, makes me not only angry, but very uncomfortable.
and you are right! Most people who are bothered by that are not connected to women’s freedom at all, they just want to control others. Specially ones they do not understand (and don’t even bother to).

Not to mention I have several Muslim friends who cover and choose to do so. In fact, the husband of one of them told her he would rather she does not veil so people would not harass her. She told him that veiling (she covers the head only) was very important to her, so he respected that.

Also, and I feel like this needs pointing out, people in general at certain kinds of clubs are just drunken assholes anyway. Maybe if this guy does not like the way that women at “the club” behave, he should try talking to women at the millions of other places that women are. Like the library! Or at work! Or at knitting club! Or at softball!

… then again, maybe it’s better that he stick to the club, and keep the asshatish-ness contained.

Welp, time to go get another tat!!

I credit a sexist male coworker I used to have for the gumption to get my first one. One day he kept going on and on and on about how unattractive women with tattoos were, how trashy, etc. I told him that humans have been tattooing themselves and practicing body modifications for a very long time and how ancient mummies have been unearthed that show tattooing, piercing and other BM practices.

“Don’t care. Women shouldn’t get them.”

The next week I went and got my first. I got the Black Rabbit of Inlé from Watership Down. I loved it and whenever I can, I go get inked. I love it.

YEAAAAAH!

And yes, there are PLENTY of awful tattoos around. I designed mine myself (for obvious reasons), but while I was in the chair, I chatted with my artist about the stupidest tattoos his customers had insisted on doing. There were a LOT. My own pet peeve is half-assed Japanese/Chinese, because even though my own skills aren’t great, I know enough about the writing system to recognize when a symbol has been turned around or just plain fucked up.

RE: SittieKitty

Yeah. I mean, some people DO get tattoos frivolously, and sometimes that works out well for them, and sometimes it doesn’t. (My husband, for instance, got drunk!inked as a teenager and he’s STILL deeply ashamed of it, because it came out so badly.)

I didn’t get much flack from anyone outside the family, fortunately. The only relative who was tattooed that I know of was in the Navy, and I want nothing to do with him, even though he’s dead now.

RE: katzentier

Ah well, I’m still too scared of long lasting contact with needles to get tattooed.

If it helps at all, I’ve got a needle phobia too. I have to lie down and use ice packs at the doctor’s whenever I need blood taken, otherwise I faint. However, it turns out that tattoo needles, my mind takes an exception to! And apparently this isn’t uncommon; my tattoo artist (a big bearded bear of a man in a motorcycle jacket) said he fainted with medical needles too, but was just fine with tattoo needles.

@LBT – I was fine with getting pierced ( I was nervous every time, but piercing is quickly over) and I don’t mind medical needles much, neither getting injections myself nor torturing other people with them (I’m becoming a nurse after all).

But tattooing takes forever. Or so I think/fear.
And I’m pretty ticklish and sensitive at my foot, but that’s where I want it. ^^

*shudder* Yeah, I never want to get pierced ever. The vessel had its ears pierced as a wee thing, but I wasn’t there at the time, and I think it happened BEFORE the needle phobia set in. Long since healed over now, of course. Tattoos are totally fine in my head but PIERCING… g-g-guhhhhh.

But tattooing takes forever. Or so I think/fear.

Depends what you’re getting. My turtledove took about half an hour; the phoenix an hour and a half. It’s not too bad really. You chat, you zone out, you listen to music. It sounds longer than it really takes.

Having never gotten anything done on my feet (I hear it’s a rougher place for ink to take) I can’t speak to how it feels on that. My shoulders weren’t too bad though; an hour and a half for the phoenix was starting to grate on me by the end, but I made it through all right.

@theladyzombie – The Black Rabbit! My first ink (when I can afford it) is either going to be El-Ahrairah from the movie intro, or one of these two quotes: “But first they must catch you” or “Be cunning, and full of tricks”.

@cloudiah – Acronyms are pretty free form in my experience. So, I feel that FFOL is allowable, but not particularly good. It make me think of FTOL, an abbreviation for “Fault Tolerant”

I designed my tattoos also 😀 I’ll get more eventually, they are expensive though. I have a few I’m waiting to save money for, one of which is some design for when we deal with loss in my profession, I’ve had to deal with 3 so far and I can’t quite figure out what’s the best thing to memorialize it with. Has to be small and easy to add to/easy to see. I don’t really want stars or flowers, most people I know who memorialize their losses in ink have stars or flowers and I wanted something different/personal.

I’m not scared of needles, although I have a fairly low pain tolerance so my tattoos were something for me to deal with. I have some on my wrists, and they were intense, and one that’s partially on the back of my calf which was also painful. I think the more I get the more I’ll get used to it. And obviously, being in the medical profession as well, I’ve no problem with poking other people. I have (apparently, lots of people have commented on it to me) an uncanny ability to detach myself from watching people in pain, which is quite helpful when you’re helping women in labour but it freaks out some of my colleagues.
