Re-watching Fight Club

The Riot Club was less on-the-nose.

Disclaimer: probably shit opinions, I am no cinephile.
It’s a cult classic but what is its cultural value now, almost twenty years later?

I still like the film but I see things in it recently I cannot ignore.
I can’t fully love it anymore. This, in spite of Peak Pitt.

TLDR: You go, emo guy!
Kinda like 500 Days of Summer but if Tom was gay and masochistic.

Also, does it piss anyone else off that Tom learned nothing at the end of that?
Is it supposed to piss me off? Well, it does. Nine years later.

Fight Club is a satire of rebellion. It’s completely safe. Even the punching has no real risk of death or serious injury. They become more drone-like in a combination of terror cell, monastery and military, but they’re too chickenshit to actually risk being shot at. They’re cowards hiding in versions of masculinity that never existed. Men didn’t go around punching a tiger to death, they raised a family. None of them do.

Imagine if (spoiler)

 

Tyler were real but Marla Singer were the imaginary one?

Imagine how much more sense that movie would make.

That’s the best theory I have. If you didn’t bring a cup of tea, you can leave on that thought. I won’t expand much on it because it is perf.

Are we ready? O.K. Pointing-out similar to The Last Psychiatrist, for time.

As it is, the control the narrator has is an illusion. The house wouldn’t exist, it’s very 90s, like the Friends apartment. There’s no way anyone involved could afford that apartment and the literal mansion wouldn’t be vacated, but it might, however, hold the Narrator’s delusions of grandeur.
He hates bosses so much he becomes a Mafia boss.
He is a sadist that enjoys listening to the pain and suffering of others. Support groups for male cancer, what a sick fuck.
He hates himself but has no self, no purpose in society.
He feels useless because he is useless.
He contributes nothing to the world that couldn’t be automated in future.
He has middle-class problems because, sorry, poor people don’t shop at Ikea.
It’s a teenage boy’s idea of rebelling, you all live in a commune (political, yes, it’s a commune) and hit your feelings out.
Er, you’re still expressing your emotions in a safe environment. It’s therapy.
You could just have got a gym sub and taken up boxing. – things a woman would say
Ah, but then he might be defeated. This is key. The Narrator refuses to take risks or they magically pay off.
He’s a Gary Stu, everything makes him more powerful and works out. For example, he isn’t caught stealing human tissue, which requires permits. There’s no regulation of his ingredients. Taxes aren’t mentioned. Now I’ve seen the tax thing, it looks like a missed opportunity for a monologue.
The locals would notice a building full of skinheads making a racket, come on.
He survives more shit than Jesus but says edgy macho tough guy stuff that would Schwarzenegger blush at how cliche and 80s it is. The fact he looks incapable of lifting an especially heavy bucket with that stringy figure makes this remarkable. He looks about 15 but talks tough. He threatens to shoot people and nobody reports him.
Really?


Look up the personality traits of male borderlines.

Marla has the female version, they’re not soulmates; they’re both crazy.
Narrator clearly has anhedonia, but only in the beginning. He isn’t an insomniac. Yet his anhedonia magically switches off in the antisocial kind to become a leader (because you can just up and decide one day) and the sexual kind (that isn’t how libido works). The guy works all hours of the week and has energy to make a toddler jealous?
It’s a parody of a revenge fantasy. The Matrix worked because it was sci-fi, the robots aren’t real either. The world knows it’s fake. The Fight Club universe doesn’t know how fake it is.
They claim to know but not a single person acts uniquely. Narrator sells shit and talks shit to hit other men.
It’s not about the women. It’s never about the women. The only woman we see is also batshit.
Where are the women? Kids? Where are the normies? Where are the happy people he hates so bad?
It’s his jealousy of other men. Wait, envy. Envy of other men. Real men. Men that are living in his head (the Cave Man as a false God of pagan freedom) and he doesn’t care if they never existed (fantasy prone but if the concept is impossible, he should care).

https://namimc.org/male-borderline-personality-disorder-know/

Complaining constantly about hypothetical abandonment is the ticker. He makes no effort to keep people in his life and secretly believes them inferior. That isn’t self-loathing, more a feature of narcissism (inferiority complex).

“Other males will “scare” their spouses away with their quick tempers, argumentativeness, and sometimes even physical aggression. An interaction with a male with BPD may include the individual saying any and everything to trigger their spouse’s anger.”

They’re not heroes, they’re the bad guys.
BPDs are a big ball of emotion. In women, it becomes internal. In men, they’re too grandiose to commit suicide so they take revenge on the world, a lot like psychopaths. They value nothing and lie to the contrary. What does the Narrator value? Only himself. Nothing else. He stands for nothing else. It’s a brittle figure of strength.
The control freak aspect is externalized. Narrator does nothing. The money he makes isn’t saved like a normal person with a brain, he spends all his time talking to himself (was Tyler’s plane seat occupied by a terrified person?) and if he can’t be happy, he’s such an omega he would rather take the whole world down with him (Savior complex) than watch someone else be happy (common in narcissism, envy triggers rage outbursts but BPDs can have rage episodes and violence triggered by envy of the happy too). If they can’t be balanced, they’ll fuck with your head too. That’s where gaslighting comes in. Narrator does indoctrinate Mayhem members like a cult.
“I’m the only one who’d have you” type of lines. Faking the moral high ground as a cover for their double standards.
Stonewalling and random requests of assistance.
BPDs can’t self-soothe, they are the original attention whores.
Narrator hates the world but responds to this by spending more time in it? Makes no sense.


Re-watching this film and actually thinking from his position, it’s insane. There’s a snowflake attachment to reality, where he expects it should be designed for him (well, that’s capitalist, so it is).

Sorry God/Daddy let you down. Setting things on fire and thinking you’re a pagan isn’t the answer.
Fuck you Dad! is not a credible life philosophy. Who will sell your Viking horn mugs?

“Do you know a male who has been with tons of women? Did this guy feel guilty or did they feel admired?”

In the latter case, either they have psychiatric immature issues / are a minor and glamorize how ‘cool’ this makes them (attention) or they’re an r-type. Out of school, nobody decent admires the impulsive, the attention dries up, gloating at how they got away with all the ‘resources’. The out-of-control aspect is common among cases of brain damage.

http://gettinbetter.com/casanova.html

I can’t think of anyone who envies the bestial, but they must imagine themselves envied to cope.

“self-sabotage in personal and professional realms”

Where was Narrator’s ambition in his old job? He’s still working. He could’ve got a better job or moved company.
Where did the magical ambition fairy pop up?
The black-outs seal it and fact he’s literally Unreliable Narrator.

“an incapacity to want you unless they can’t have you”

Peter Pan.

“A colleague who works almost exclusively with male borderlines, has told me that they generally present as commitment-phobes and sex addicts”

Imagine the film without Marla. She’s far more interesting than he is, isn’t she?
So even in a film all about men, their lives are hollow until a Manic Pixie in black comes along.

“Casanova makes sure you know how grateful he is to have finally found you, because you’re “like no other woman” he’s ever known. His enthusiasm and glee seem authentic: One of my ex’s would initially remark how great it was, that he’d finally met a female who was his “intellectual equal.””

Not that they’re writing checks on themselves they cannot cash.
Do you know how many men literally claim an IQ of 170, thinking we cannot tell?
It’s like claiming to be 7 foot tall. We’re fairly certain you’re lying.
And if Einstein was around 150, what the hell have you done with your life? Ah, degeneracy. Sleeping on couches and clubbing. Sounds more like an IQ of 70, lower IQs are more aggressive. Men who talk and talk and talk and talk, do not have anything to say. Let alone 170 in IQ points material. You wouldn’t be telling some random woman in that case, you’d be submitting it to the Nobel committee.
BPD is one of those conditions with negative self-awareness, they are among the greatest losers of society but dat
grandiosity, they claim to be the best. You know — secretly.

Otherwise their awesomeness might explode the world or something.

Random: The remarriage thing sounds like Elon, now that combustion would be entertaining to watch. It’s part of the control where they trap a woman, intending to cheat. They don’t ‘mean’ the vows but you better uphold yours! (not how it works? very stupid men)

“The brunt of his unhealed pain concerning the loss of other attachments was transferred onto me”

The BPD will deliberately cause suffering in those stupid enough to stick around them.
They vent out the pain and enjoy seeing the result of that pain in others. In a padded cell, with nobody to hurt, they’ll kill themselves rather than cope with their own emotions.
When caught, they play wounded, cry victim, gaslight the victim that they’re the ones being abusive. Look at the honest comments in any story on the topic. It’s what they do, it’s their game.

“Tears streamed down his face” imagine an adult with the brain of a toddler
that’s literally it

At least they tend to attract other shit-tier people.
Again, omit Marla because at minimum she’s female and Tyler isn’t actually there.
All of them are pathetic specimens of men. Narrator’s leadership is never challenged despite superior men physically, it’s weird.

“Borderlines thrive on crisis, drama and chaos, which contribute to their sense of aliveness--it’s the main reason why many are treatment resistant.”

Lol, nothing about Fight Club reminds me of that.

“The Chase is intoxicating for Casanova–outside of that, he gets bored. Borderline females are the only ones who are better at this game than he is~ and in truth, they can hold his attention indefinitely.”

Marla.
Your parents’ issues are not yours.
That’s an excuse, isn’t it?

“Aside from any sense of empowerment he may have derived from adopting the role of surrogate mate for Mother, replicating his father’s antics helps him identify with the dad he never had, and minimize his pain from the missing paternal bond. Stealing another man’s woman enables him to punish/shame other men, as he might have relished doing to his father, as an abandoned little boy. This pattern compulsively repeats, as he’s acting-out unresolved rage from childhood neglect and betrayal.”

Maladaptive.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Repetition_compulsion

“Apparently, he’d needed me to desire him, to fortify his self-image.”

ah, the sad specter of the aged playboy

“Many are determined to tell me how much younger they look than their chronological age,

that’s a tell

what great lovers they are, and how every female they’ve been with sexually, has declared them “The Best!”

Ask for their social media names to check. Watch the color drain.

A confident male doesn’t need to talk about his sexual prowess, or anything else he feels sure of for that matter; income, job status, athletic superiority, good looks, academic achievements, etc.”

What does Marla say?
It isn’t a threat to you?

“Too many females are easily taken in by the Borderline’s apparent brilliance and base of knowledge. In direct contrast to the instability you’ve observed in this male, there have been times you’ve glimpsed what seems to be his wisdom, his spirituality and his incredible knack for stating things that make him sound like the absolute authority on health and well-being. Borderlines are usually plagiarists and copycats.

It goes on about their Guru Complex. Isn’t Narrator trying to be a secular Guru?
Feeling dead inside is ill, full stop.
Poor Jewish men (there’s a section).
Narrator points out his father abandoned his mother… but he hates his mother.


The father would deliberately set up multiple families (think Bruce Jenner), classic r-strategy.
The emotionally disturbed are strong projectors, don’t even need a lightbulb in there.
Combined with hazing, it’s like the military but for pussies who fear real discipline, since they lacked that growing up.

Apathy isn’t a motivation, here in the real world. They fuel themselves with spite and hatred. Of the good.
Tyler the Tyrant, worst father figure ever (with the hand burn to prove it). Self-destructive people are one thing, but to wanna destroy the world? …Like there’s no good in it, ever? Classic narc. Tough love is not repeatedly punching another man in the dick. It’s called sadism.
Fight Club is a homoerotic (men only) S&M club and I dare you to prove otherwise by definition.
Wiping out all debt is a kiddy solution to adult problems. It doesn’t change the shitty characters that got into debt.
It’s the hipster love of authenticity, via anti-authenticity. Ironic authenticity, via cookie cutter.
Like the Gary Stu of James Bond, they parody masculinity by needing to do something to prove they’re a man, and that thing is materialism. Prove it to who? Long lost Daddy. Maybe after twenty years he’ll come back. So instead of working for the Man they pay for the Man’s approval. Smart.


Nobody in Archer is likable either. All of them are trash people.

That film is far more hostile to men than it ever could be to women.
How many years are you working off the clubbing debt? Did you add up the whole shebang? Aren’t hookers cheaper? Yes, of course you’re in control, now hand over your credit card to the nice bartender for some shitty, shitty vodka.

PSA

Modern men are stupid and it makes me sad.

Video: What is a thot? (plus traps)

Okay, the joke’s over, it’s mainstream.

It’s the female version of a fuckboy, a trashy slut.

Note the age on this video. Like a wine*. You could’ve checked Urban Dictionary …but no.
Yeah, the alt right’s been stealing black slang. They’re just applying it to basic bitches, and even recently, normal and good women. I’ve mentioned how dumb it is to criticize women who don’t wanna be fat and useless, as the sex that hates fat and uselessness. Use basic bitch, it’s a good insult but ya gotta know for an insult to work, it needs to apply.
Everyone takes selfies now. Men take the most selfies down the gym – they thots? That’s the grammatically accurate use of the term. The standard for pop culture was that dog filter. I mean, damn, that dog filter. THOT-QED right there. Tindr? Thot. Female? Not a thot. It ain’t a synonym. Wearing a short skirt? Not a thot, normal in the West. Fashion is not a behaviour. Some of the sluttiest women dress modestly to get away with it, I’ve seen it. Club sluts, female club sluts. THOT – in da club.
He also discussed traps.

Look at the DATE. Stop nabbing ghetto culture and still insulting everything about them. You clearly liked some of it.
So technically, plenty of men posting gym selfies are thirsty traps. They’re attention-whoring for orbiters.
If you wanna use the tranny definition, just be specific. They’re copying black girls. A lot of black men secretly cross-dress. Like, a LOT. If you ask around. A LOT.

inb4*”Men age like wine.”

You can tell they don’t drink wine.

Sure, men age like wine. With each passing year, the odds of being infected and ruined forever increase exponentially. (called ‘corked’ wine)

Male beauty correlates to right-wing position

Strong men aren’t much into helping the weaker competition, since your genetic looks are an advertisement.

(You could argue lifting weights is ‘lying’ about your natural somatoform and strength level, much like applying excess makeup to alter bone structure, fake masculinity and fake femininity, much like muscle implants or breast implants give off false cues about fertility and chemical dimorphism.)

You might disagree with my use of the term ‘male beauty’ but if we’re studying female constantly it follows there must also be a standard for men even if you prefer to call it handsomeness… it’s still beauty.

I love how the method is biased but the result came shining through.

“Both the simple and complex social bargaining models received partial support: sociopolitical egalitarianism was negatively related to bodily formidability, but unrelated to other measures of bodily/facial formidability/attractiveness; and a formidability-wealth interaction did predict variance in support for redistribution, but the nature of this interaction differed somewhat from that reported in previous research. Results of the experimental manipulation suggested that egalitarianism is unaffected by self-perceived formidability in the immediate short-term. In sum, results provided some support for both the simple and complex social bargaining models, but suggested that further research is needed to explain why male formidability/attractiveness and egalitarianism are so often negatively related.”

Now a study about the women, to make it scientific.

TFW not red-pill according to newbies

My feelings are so hurt I’m gonna start a Youtube AND a Patreon!

http://meme-magic-agency.com/redpill/

There are clearly some BS questions in there.

A few are simply out-of-place PUA/MRA/MGTOW shit.

If you don’t want to roll back the Sexual Revolution of the 60s, you can’t roll back to any prior time period, Einsteins.

Like assuming Universal Suffrage is female-only (look up the actual laws), and the Alpha Bro question with no basis in statistics (the provider breeds, the genetic father remaining – father is a verb – increases fitness according to all known results, to start it’s called the Parental Investment Hypothesis). A ‘psychologist’ should know these things…..

Nothing about HBD or civic nationalism, for instance. It’s more of an Alt-Lite PUA list. You can’t own a concept like redpill. Reddit tried that. This is No True Redpill, trying to outgroup the people with the facts, the people who made this more than a few memes during election season. I have a special helicopter waiting just for you, red carpet for the self-proclaimed Alpha that doesn’t ‘believe’ in evolution.
Blaming the wimminz is what weak men do. It divides the two halves necessary for reproduction, the true purpose of feminism. Not shekels, that ‘genocide’ thing you mentioned…

17309647_193580121141068_377832536047522180_n

I’ve been using this tagline the best part of a decade so you can pry it from my cold dead fingers, you Tinder-loving gym fags. Not one traditionalist question or anything philosophical about how to structure a healthy society, so it’s all normie trying to signal edgy with zero productive ideas. Like critical theory for the right.

18268533_1354733824621330_5671789448836126303_n

You can’t outgroup the original founders, you Roosh-cucking degenerates.

But at least they called me Hitler.

17800007_1893017997654152_4251070920055965993_n

You won’t be a Party member of any Patriarchy without a family.

They’ll get bored when they realize the Alt Right won’t allow them to rest on their arses signalling on Twitter like an SJW. The AR is undergoing a purge of lightweights or else it’ll die and change form like a phoenix. You do have to get up and work for this, and give up all the deviance you’re addicted to. That’s the barrier to entry, not learning certain terms. If you refuse to marry, you don’t believe in marriage, you might as well be Milo. Your ‘sex life’ impresses no one.

But at least they called me Hitler, so you know I must be onto something.

Since when did autist mean factually correct?

Sluts on the morality of slutting:

manwhores

The first was Henry VIII.

I love how they’re going the way of NRx and trying to claim ‘official’ beliefs, like a doctrine of a religion. You don’t get to exclude people. You have no moral authority. You’re not running this show. Your MSM-baiting ‘gatherings’ involve the e-celeb cancer thinking it’s important. You’re as bad as Laci Green, you just come from the opposite claim, totally passively reacting to whatever the Left says, standing for nothing yourselves. Just anti-, opposing, spite.
Way to bury any ideology, formalize. Next these losers will get matching homoerotic hoodies to go with their Man-Gorilla book. What’s the size of a gorilla’s dick again? Tiny.

The people writing this shit are genetic suicides and atheists, their opinion is liberal trash.
Commie by behaviour. Look at dem birth rates… wait, that’s abortion from your ‘notches’. Proud papa. They were libertarian gamer trash porn addicts before Gamergate.

Meanwhile, you know they’re a degenerate slut trying to explain away all the party years (ongoing) by insulting people who score highly too. They’re still living it up in the Pussy Parade and expect an obedient wife to take on their STDs and cheating risk once they start losing more hair and getting fat.

R-types are defined by their selfish entitlement.
However, we know they’re incapable of monogamy so the joke’s on anyone dumb enough to ring it.

Still, better than 8values.

Actual hatefacts to offend everyone

OR
Nevermind, your fear is completely justified.

Feel free to make your own.

So let’s talk about the Red Pill, shall we?

This little red pill where any group is magically exempt from criticism… almost like a privilege. Offense is “how dare you imply my demographic is morally fallible!”

Shall we?

 

Could the Alt Right be too popular?

It’s attracted a lot of free riders off the coat-tails of various claimed ‘successes’.

Myself, I don’t think memes count as work, they’re just a bit of fun slinging at the precious Narrative.

I’ve been watching very closely and thinking carefully about The Next Step.

I can’t honestly say there is one. If this turns out to be a purely-memetic trend, it will shortly implode, possibly to change into a more extreme form. I know there are people who probably want that to happen, the SJWs in particular, this way when they scream ‘literally Hitler’ something might stick.

I think the core issue with AR is attracting too many socialists.

They think they can play both sides in effect, a new breed. I’ve complained in the past about the fence-sitting social liberal, economic conservative but this is the opposite. I’ve never seen it before. The social conservative, economic socialist. It makes no logical sense whatsoever. The economics and social policies must match. This is looking like edgy libertarianism, with additional servings of autism and grievance.

We have plenty of just grievance, we don’t need to make any up.
Don’t get me started on the weakness of civic nationalism.

Too much conflict, too few standards.

There’s no such thing as a right-wing socialist, FFS.
We need K-selection, not slightly weaker r.

There’s too many heavy symbolism issues dragging the good ideas back. History didn’t work or we’d still have it.

There’s too many crazies or obnoxious fools being let in, if they signal.
Ahem, since when did we give a damn about virtue signalling?

I covered this before in the ‘hypocrisy of the signalling right’.

They’re not held to any standard. Most are atheist and happily genetic suicide.
We need a minimum barrier of knowledge without blocking people who want to understand.

A few have clear disturbances that nobody begs them to correct.
Filtering out the embittered (especially at Mom/women) would do a world of good, they tend to congregate on that idea. Fine, go live on a homoerotic island with all your bro-boyfriends. It’s like claiming a modern   Matriarchy, it’s absurd. Some MRA and MGTOW types have been picked up and given a platform to turn us against one another. Division in a gender war is what the SJWs want. It’s anti-natal.

The men do not police the other men and naturally the women can’t do it. Few women stick around for the general shouting-down from the obnoxious oafs. It drives away that spirit of cooperation required.

What’s the plan? What’s the goal?

Memes are beyond the lolz, they contain ideas. They carry philosophies. They are not vapid insults. See Wrath of Gnon’s superb interview.

This is why the Left can’t meme. They lack the underpinning of reality.

They’re right, though. It is a war of ideas… but it never ends. Where is the vanguard?

We may be skirting into similar delusory territory. It’s like that silly ‘get back in the kitchen’ meme. Meanwhile, the West dies.

I find myself going back to the neoreactionary materials, as you must’ve noticed. Other traditionalist places too. There’s only so many times you can see the n-word thrown around for shock value before you realize you’re not going to get an intellectual debate about the future of the West and civilization with these children.

A change is coming and we need to clean house. The nihilists and the promiscuous are the worst – the prosocial rot, the antisocial cancer. Druggies after that. All degenerate really means is antisocial, as in, bad for society, anti-societal and dyscivic. These ‘hobbies’ are not individual, they cause social harm e.g. antibiotic resistance.
We cannot decry degeneracy when we allow degenerates. We’re not Jesus, we can’t absolve them. If they’re hell-bent, so be it. It’s God’s will, they deserve to be there. Missionaries do not fear God because they have a Messiah complex, trying to save everyone. Few deserve salvation. You need leave them only breadcrumbs – those are memes.
The Left is strong because it is a lifestyle and because they feel strong and united from the cheerleader effect. The media crumbling, the narrative imploding, damages their bubble illusion.

You can’t attract good people with negative degenerates.

We don’t want to implode like the shitheap that was the manosphere.

This is without going into the distinct probability of black ops. I mean, wouldn’t you?

This MSM attention is making me nervous for the first time ever.
Woman’s intuition, something is wrong. This has been too quiet, too easy for a while.

We don’t have any lifestyle guidance. None of the basics our forefathers took for granted. Places like artofmanliness come close to what I mean. Nothing about music or art or books to read. Where is the right’s culture?
Where are the lists? Where are our curricula?

We need a vision of utopia. Or what are we aiming for?

We’d be weakened as pure, modernist reaction to online sensationalism. Event-based. We need to become the event others respond to.

If this becomes a popularity contest at the expense of substance, it’s a pageant. There are too many farces of Patriarchs that can’t even do their own laundry let alone raise a family and keep a wife happy.
We can do better than the Patrick Bateman metrosexual model of masculinity, all fake muscles and ‘notches’.
These are the people who don’t get that Fight Club is satirical. They’re living the ridiculous.
The West doesn’t want more cushion dogs. Speaking of, treating dogs like kids is creepy. Stop it. You’re as bad as cat ladies. It’s Paris Hilton Syndrome.

The energy-giving, useful people like me and others are retreating. We don’t want to cope with the dross.
I think we’re unconsciously waiting for them to get bored or self-destruct, as hedons always do. Then we sweep back in to clean up. I fear we may have invited in the ideological equivalent of locusts, they kill any movement they join like losers picking up a fashion trend. The degenerate are the most worthless humans you shall ever encounter, it’s like babysitting children. They slag off snapchat but use ‘XD’ seriously. Male thots. All about attention. Nix the narcissists in your midst or perish. They aren’t allies but fairweather friends.

Look up the rest of the phrase ‘birds of a feather flock together…’.

The r-types will necessarily drive away the Ks. Problem is, this is a pure K-movement. They’re the barbarians, the fifth column. They don’t want change but they seek our power, to take it. What do you expect from socialists? All they do is eat, eat, eat away at the People.

Man card isn’t a thing. It doesn’t exempt you from explanation, falling in line with the group’s standard of conformity, from working yourself, making changes and it certainly doesn’t give you a license to whine, bitch, order around women or better men. In the Old Testament, men had rites of passage and standards of etiquette to have any power, or else they were children.

You fire the lazy employee. You shun the slothful activist. This isn’t a fucking hippy commune.

This is work, bitch.

We don’t have champers for socialists. The hen keeps her bread. Welcome to K-shift, have fun.

Traits of toxic people and PUA/’game’ gaslighting

https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/in-flux/201608/8-common-traits-the-toxic-people-in-your-life
” They focus on problems, not solutions.”
e.g. Critical theory and being ‘unhelpful’ for…?
“They use other people to accomplish whatever their goal happens to be.”
e.g. PUAs. Formal term is triangulation, they tell you what you want to hear.
“They make you prove yourself to them.” You only qualify yourself to a superior, peer must be assumed until proven and isn’t based on a demographic factor, it’s individual. In the reverse…
e.g. Everyone who says, in effect ‘I dislike your opinion, so you’re part of outgroup’, a no true scotsman.
“Beware of people who find fault with you and make you wrong. Loyalty is foreign to them.”
They’re never wrong, are they? 😀
“Toxic people often make you want to fix them and their problems. They want you to feel sorry for them, and responsible for what happens to them. Yet their problems are never really solved, for once you’ve helped them with one crisis, there’s inevitably another one. What they really want is your ongoing sympathy and support, and they will create one drama after another in order to get it. “Fixing” and “saving” them never works, especially since you probably care more about what happens to them than they do.”

It’s good I already mentioned pick-up and ‘game’ because it actually follows the stages of gaslighting abuse.
https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/communication-success/201704/the-7-stages-gaslighting-in-relationships

I’ll illustrate with examples, where possible.
1. Women are worthless. Counter: then why are you obsessed with them? You don’t base your life around something worthless. [They don’t want women to be happy without them and without being their hookers, hence the contradiction with the Western value of liberty and tradition of not being promiscuous and degenerate (applies to both sexes). They implicitly believe ‘Women should be forced to sleep with me’. Hold up there, Mohammed! They bought into the lie of porn – all women want you and they’re ‘playing hard to get’. Sexual entitlement is the secret of a loser’s desperation. The women in porn are paid to act interested, even they’re not. They also conveniently forget a supposedly desirable harem is marriage, with Middle Eastern duties on the man, the man is 100% financially responsible and the women don’t work. They refuse to get married once and object to that polygamy because it reduces nubile supply.]
2. Women are (various bad things, implying men are not). No proof, no comparison of data from both sexes. Long opinion pieces. Counter: Differentiate that from sexism. [Third-wave Feminists do this stuff too, but everyone’s already explaining that.] Negging doesn’t even work, just look at their ‘success rate’. The terms are so Orwell.
3. (They literally tell their followers –cult– to escalate whatever criticism comes their way after attention-whoring –peacocking-, so I don’t need to put anything here. They literally use the word escalate, even when what they’re escalating e.g. ‘kino’, code for physical contact, is illegal aka assault). Search PUA+game+”escalate”
4. Aside from continuation long after it’s socially acceptable, stalking, doxing and harassment, I’d also include dogpiles and other ways to get their internet boyfriends involved to keep punching down. Because punching down, 5 or more against 1 is so much better? ‘Amused mastery’ isn’t what it sounds like, it’s the denial and dickishness women uncannily and universally despise about just these guys, since they refuse to admit any useful point (brick wall) and deny-deny-deny while claiming women are the ones denying reality. They laugh at the frustration, like children, oblivious to how stupid they objectively look (also to other men).
5. Google “dread game” it’s literally this stage. Seriously.
6. ‘Beta game’ aka pretending to be a decent person for a little while. Narcissists do this already but male borderlines need to be told how to imitate it, to get the supply they need. Most ‘game’ is feigning K-selected characteristics that are evolutionally desirable while hiding what they really are, that’s why they burn out like the psychopaths they stupidly admire – it’s one big act. They pretend being fake men for years is a strength and sunk cost means they never admit it. That’s what all the ‘macho man’ fake masculinity spiel is, they’re trying to convince themselves of the delusion. Ask them how their mother’s doing. Better yet, ask her WTH happened.
7. Look up all the quotes and forum topics on ‘game’ sites describing all women as whores that want to be raped and choked, specifically. Sometimes beaten, with fists or a belt. They really do think this, they’ve projected all their desensitized sick porn habits on the Evil Lilith Judaism myth. Men don’t dominate women, they never have, they work with women on mutually agreed upon goals, the sexes cooperate or those examples die. They’re thinking of sexual domination because they don’t think with Upstairs Brain.

In effect, these males want sex slavery without the balls to run their own life, a Mommy replacement. Remember, one of Mohammed’s ‘wives’ (captive slaves) poisoned him.

They’re not joking when they say they don’t want women to have rights because they don’t see women as human. In which case, their sexuality is dubious (bestiality? which religion is that common to again?) and they can’t expect women to do any work, including childcare. Let alone their ‘share’ of the housework.

‘Game’ proponents pretend to teach the socially inept how to find wife material. They lie to other men to make shekels and seem respectable. That’s why I did the still-popular post on What does it get you? Less than the average guy, guessing. That’s without going into the brown caste of most game practitioners, desperate in their White and Blonde fetishes/Fevers. But sure, it’s the women gagging for you, huh? They don’t select for the quality or marriage, those males (not men) don’t see it, don’t value or respect it and couldn’t keep it if it managed to fall from the sky to their lap. They sexually select (DARWIN) for cheapness, easiness and sluttiness. No wonder they keep finding women to be sexually damaged, emotionally disturbed (the ones attracted to them) and disloyal. They’re signalling what they are. Birds of a feather…

Remember!

The one common denominator in all your failed relationships, is you.
