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.

Sure Terrence, whatever. How nice of you to come here and tell us what we what. Are you always this incoherent, or is it just a PUA strategy I’m unaware of?

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.

Is Terrence our old friend Exploring Nature under a new name? The unique and fascinating use of English is similar.

What is with all the random trolls lately? Oh and terrence, no need to post here to try to prove to yourself its true.

I don’t think it’s EN, Cassandra. He’s not completely off-topic.

Terrence knows us so much better than we know ourselves that he forgot how to use grammar.

I am not EN. I don’t even know who such a person is. I have never posted on this site before today. Sorry to burst your bubble. You can not have any life to keep track of people like that, though.

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.

Isn’t the intent of a poe to amuse? If so this one isn’t doing very well so far.

Oh this is just too amazing, yay for new trolls! And why the random caps Terrence? Is this another scholarly trend of which I am unaware?
