Beware of women bearing potato chips, because they’re out to kill your sexy, sexy body and make you, like, a fatty. Especially beware when the woman in question is your longterm girlfriend, because this is all a devious plot to kill her feelings of attraction towards you because secretly all women want boyfriends they don’t think are attractive, or something.
Sorry, I’m having a little trouble understanding this latest theory from the Red Pill subreddit. So let’s go through it in detail and see if it makes more sense the second time around.
“Food is a trap. Don’t fall for it,” the Red Piller known as NorthEasternNomad declared in a recent post.
[A longterm] partner will almost always try and “fatten you up.” But that makes me less attractive, you say. Why would she want that?
Simple: It reduces your SMV [Sexual Market Value].
Ok, it’s still not making sense yet, but let’s hear this dingus out.
Validation is sex for women. Its their primary need, in terms of what they get from men. Sex itself is secondary; its the validation they are after.
Huh. This sounds just a teensy bit like the sort of thing guys tell themselves when they’re not very good at sex.
Meanwhile, SMV for men is determine by a LARGE margin, by physique. Thats not the ONLY factor, but is a BIG factor.
Yeah, if you get off of the Red Pill subreddit and into the real world for a few minutes you’ll notice rather quickly that women tend to be flexible on this point.
By “fattening you up” she is essentially taking you off the sexual market. Making it so that other women, are not even interested.
But, again, even if we accept the premise that fat or even slightly pudgy dudes are inherently unsexy to all women, which isn’t true, this makes no sense because it means the girlfriend in question doesn’t find you sexy either.
This gives her the power. It places your existence, within her frame.
Think about if: If you are off the sexual market, Dread Game is impossible.
“Dread Game,” by the way, means manipulating a woman so she’s constantly worrying that you’ll leave her. It’s a favorite strategy of the Red Pillers, because at heart they’re a bunch of manipulative abusers (or manipulative abuser wannabes).
If no one wants your fat ass, she never needs to worry. The power dynamic shifts to favor her to an immense degree. But this also means you can never, ever make her tingle; if there’s no risk inherent in the relationship, no dread, her hamster has basically rolled over and gone to sleep…until someone ELSE wakes it up.
So her strategy is to make you fat and unattractive … then to move on to a new, non-fat guy? Why? Why go through all this trouble when she could simply have you in your original form?
Do not let her junk food fixation, become your way of life. She will try. SUbtly, at first. Desert night once per week. Then next thing you know, she’s buying potato chips and ice cream on every shopping run.
POTATO CHIPS ARE THE DEVIL!
Maybe she knows why she does it; more probably she doesn’t even understand her compulsion to fatten up her husband or long time partner. But the fact remains: The result is your removal from the sexual marketplace completely, the utter inability to use dread game, and her complete stranglehold on your sex life and the relationship as a whole.
This leads to staleness and boredom. A complete lack of emotional tingles. And we ALL know where the next step is from there.
In case anyone didn’t get what NorthEasternNomad was implying here, one of the commenters made a little diagram.
Get tingles > fuck > marry > lower partners smv > no more tingles > divorce > get tingles
Huh. Wouldn’t it be simpler to just do
Get tingles > fuck > marry > fuck more
In addition to everything else wrong with it, the Red Pill just seems needlessly complicated.
