I'll be brief and blunt because I'm riding to Alaska on a motorcycle, have to maximize daylight and plain don't have the patience.
I have written pieces in the past that, though about women, were NOT about trying to date them or bed them.
However, because they WERE about women, the "Monday Morning Quarterbackers" come out of the wood work and start critiquing game, telling me what I should have done, etc. etc., when the whole point of the post was NOT about gaming a girl, but something else.
For example, this post here at ROK.
Though I am very grateful to have it posted and read by many, the comment section completely misses the forest from the trees and immediately goes into "post game analysis show."
Thus I call BS.
In not being able to accept, realize, and appreciate the point I was trying to make, and IMMEDIATELY go into a "post game show analysis" on how "I failed to ignore them" or "how I didn't do X or Y," it only further convinces me that the manosphere is honeycombed with wanna be's, keyboard jockeys, and "manosphere academians" who have no front line, real world, experience and merely wish to study it from the safety of the anonymous internet.
They never approached a girl.
They never got shot down.
They never failed.
And consequently they have never succeeded.
Instead, they abuse the Manosphere and its composite sites as a mental treatment to vent, yell, scream, and then rationalize. But they either lack the means, ability or will to actually take the advice, wisdom and/or observations of it and thus become talkers, not walkers.
Understand the Manosphere and the stories, data, anecdotes, etc., is not an academic study to be theorized about. It's not a liberal arts program. It's not a Philosophy PhD department. It's not a women's studies shelter.
It is a practical trade school giving you tools. Tools that have been forged by other mens' experiences.
If you wish to take these observations, tools, wisdom, etc., to improve your life, great. But if you wish to sit in school for the rest of your days, become a theoretician and never apply these practical lessons and bytes of wisdom we're giving you, and instead use it to explain, but never correct your failures, then admit you're a coward, a troll, a professor. An academian who can't do, but will only teach and critique.
I do NOT want any readers making any comments on ROK. I linked to it as it was only empirical evidence. We will NOT annoy or start a troll war over there. My thanks in advances. Just wanted to point it out.
