Critics of Game part 1December 10, 2012
First off, big high five and thanks to Danny, resident of the 504 for giving me a surprise call on the weekend and chatting it up with me spur of the moment. It helped get me motivated to get out of my funk. On top of already having started to watch MindOS (again), he also gave me a homework assignment. A slight modification of what Private Man tells his audience to do.
Also i want people to understand the bipolar nature of my writing. There is one aspect of me that writes for myself, far removed from caring for this society or helping it’s continuance, and another that writes nostalgically about what i feel could have saved this society and what the newest generation (not my generation) are required to grok in order to keep it from death spiraling towards a point where you don’t take turning on the lights for granted. While i’d like to see the world get better, it won’t be me doing the heavy lifting cupcake. I’m out!
Shortly after my incel post, i was tracking stats of where page hits were coming from and i found some ‘opponents’ to which i started writing out a huge response that, par for the course, ballooned into War & Peace. I decided to make this seperate from that because i don’t want you guys taking a bathroom break during reading, since there’s a lot of links and stuff between the two. So i start with the smaller post using more recent (and better written stuff by other folks first)
Last night i was going to do a random post based on an episode of Criminal Minds i caught yesterday, but it dovetailed perfectly with stuff Vox and Badger have written so i’ll just create one big delicious layer cake here.
This was what reminded me of the episode of Criminal Minds. Season 4 episode 9. The title of the episode was called “PickUp”
It would be best if you watched the whole episode for yourself but i can’t find any links to it on YouTube or any other media sites so you’ll have to use ‘other’ means for yourself. Arrrr be careful when sailin’ the digital seas matey.
Anyways. Here’s a dirty summation.
Although a thoroughly enjoyable episode, it pissed me off seeing how they tried to discredit Game whilst simultaneously proving that it works in the same episode. They’re tracking a serial killer who learned ‘Pickup’ training from a game seminar and is using his applied techniques to lure women to their death.
While investigating, 2 female FBI agents discover the teacher of said seduction techniques calls himself ‘Viper‘ (the Mystery knockoff right down to the big fluffy hat and eye makeup) and are thoroughly disgusted by his persona and that he teaches men how to be socially comfortable and capable around women. The amount of PUA lingo used in this episode is surprising. They even brought up the ‘Queen Bee’.
Well, these 2 females agents are so incenced with Viper’s suaveness that they go balls to the wall to discredit him and his techniques. The episode closes out with them going to a club together, dressed to the tits and by playing hardball and shooting down all his openers and negs, and then give him a full dose of shaming and loser langauge (even tho everything he said is dead accurate and they don’t deny it) simply to rattle him off his game to give them vital information about what he taught the killer.
ONLY because they went in fully aware and with a mindset intent on beating his ‘charms’ were they able to play him off that way. It’s easy to not be disarmed when you already know in advance the thief is a thief and intent on robbing you blind. Doesn’t mean the thief you don’t see won’t rob you.
It’s actually quite pathetic how they show these two FBI agents shooting him down. Like ‘oooh yeah, look how we totally debunked this guys snake charms’…
..but as much as they might try to dismiss it, they can’t deny the fact that game in all it’s forms, including the magic trick employed by Spencer towards the female bartender, and all the victims including the near victim at the end of the episode, where all actually showing that game works!
Even the female FBI agents at the end confess to learning tricks from Cosmo (heaven help them) because ultimately, men and women want to be attractive to each other.. so it begs the point.. what’s wrong with teaching socially awkward guys ways to be better with women? Especially when it’s shown to work. You may not like the methodology, but you can’t deny the results when applied correctly.
As Danny always says. Attraction is not a choice. Learning how to be more attractive is not evil.. despite what the media says. And those who aren’t willing to attempt even a little, or dismiss it outright and say it’s bullshit, you just don’t want to wake up from the Matrix. Game may not be bulletproof and it might not land you HB9′s and 10′s like most of the guys who sell books and shit will tell you. But there can be no doubt that improving upon yourself, your looks and your ability to talk with the opposite sex without pedestalization brainfarts IS A GOOD THING!
The media does a great job of painting Game as a villainous thing to be watchful of, conflating it with dangerous serial killers. The sad thing is, it boils down the charisma and confidence that game can create for a man required to land a relationship is the same trait someone like Ted Bundy could apply to kill women long before ‘Game’ had a name or marketability.
So enough with the fucking conflation you stupid media fucks!
Nobody would make the connection between Cosmo seduction tricks and teaching female teachers how to seduce their underage students because they employ the same sexual seduction skills on their victims? So stop doing it here. It’s disingenuous.
But what else did you expect from a femcentric society?
Anyways, now that you read my diatribe, i invite you to go read a more cultured and better written essay as to why Game is required, not to be dismissed, and needs to be understood both by the men who craft and calibrate it towards their ends and needs as they see fit, and the women who will be the recipients of it.
You need to understand why Game matters and should not be dismissed.
Tonight i’ll see if i can make Part 2 more coherent than the mess it currently is.
