Chivalry is a Beta Move, Right?

Chivalry is a Beta Move, Right?

Aug 23, 2013

Chivalry. We’re all aware of the basic idea, opening a door for a girl, letting her exit the elevator first, pulling out her chair, etcetera… Now as far as I’m aware, this is the general consensus within the Manosphere: Chivalry is about as Beta as you get. No. It’s worse than Beta…. It’s Omega. Chivalry is what “nice guys” do. And we all know what happens to… “nice guys”. I’m here to dispel this theory. Or at least, offer a counter point of view. The Origin of Chivalry Contrary to popular belief, Chivalry is not about being every woman on earth’s personal manservant. Well, it wasn’t, at least. As Ian Ironwood discussed in this excellent article; The Knights of Chivalry and The Vows of Knighthood were mostly about honour, combat, glory, respect, authority, duty, responsibility, and honesty. So Chivalry is without a doubt a manly thing. One of the most famous examples of Chivalry is to not stab someone in the back. They should be facing you, sword drawn. I’m fairly confident this is meant both physically and metaphorically. Problem is, the meaning today has been boiled down to just the one code: To respect the honour of women. A quick note to the feminists who believe that that rule was born from times when women were assumed to be “weak and defenceless”: To protect the weak and defenceless To give succour to widows and orphans To fight for the welfare of all To respect the honour of women. Notice that, “To protect the weak and defenseless”, and “To respect the honour of women”. Are two different rules. Chivalry In Society Look carefully at how this is written: To respect the honour of women. “Enhance,” says the main protagonist to the tech-guy in NCIS. To respect women’s honour. “Enhance,” he says again, adjusting his dark sunglasses. To respect honourable women. “Now invert it horizontally.” You don’t have to be chivalrous to bitches. You can then extend this to, “You don’t have to be chivalrous to girls you don’t know.” Hence doing away with one of the problem Dalrock brought up in this very sarcastically written article on the topic. This is the “all men...

Day 4. Talk

Day 4. Talk

Aug 6, 2013

Talk to 10 people. This should be easy. You’re already going to the gym today. There are plenty of people there. Today you will talk to 10 people that you do not know. Conversations should last around 30 seconds (if not longer). This will be easy for some of you. This might even be a normal day for some of you. Heck, some of you surpass 10 easily. Learning to be a source of confidence is part of becomming a man. Much like seddit encourages approaching women regularly, we will learn to break down any anxiety about talking to strangers at all. Men or women, you will have a conversation with 10 people today. Here are some easy ones to get you started: Talk about the game with guys at the gym. Talk about your difficulty in food choice with people in grocery store aisles. Talk about something funny in the news with somebody at the bar. This might seem like basic shit. And it is. But unless you can do it, and be sure you can, then you cannot become a man. For the introverts: Doesn’t matter. Deal with the anxiety. Part of being a man is doing what needs to be done even when you don’t like it.

The Bell Curve

The Bell Curve

Aug 6, 2013

Life operates on a bell curve in a variety of ways from skill to IQ to height and weight. In the sexual marketplace on one end there are women who are attracted right off the bat and on the other end there are women that no matter what you say or do you’ll never be seen as attractive and won’t have a shot with them. The bulk of women fall somewhere between these two ends of the spectrum. Naturals and a lot of PUAs do what I would describe as not having good game, but are good at screening women for those who are warm to their approach, allowing them to find women who are their type so they get laid quicker and more often. When you zoom out and start looking at the bigger picture, that bulk of women that fall somewhere in the middle of that bell curve, good game IMO is what lets you get them. Adam Lyons once said something similar to all of this in that everyone is only attractive up to a certain point, and to “punch above your weight” you’ll need to have solid game. Typically game will only let you get women about 1 point of SMV higher than yourself. Really tight game may get you a 2 point bump. Using the number system, if you’re a 7 then you’ll usually pull 7s and below. You’ll need good game to get 8s and incredible game to get 9s. So where does the bell curve fit in? A) Game lets you get women who you’re NOT naturally attractive for B) There are woman out there who will be naturally attracted to you for whatever reason, so with them you don’t even have to run game really, you just have to not fuck it up That guy who is a 7 may be an 8 or 9s perfect guy for some reason and may not need much game to get them. It happens once in a while, as in the Marisa Tomei/George Constanza sense. However, that’s an extremely rare occurrence from what I’ve experienced personally, which is why screening is so important, mainly so you’re not fighting an...

Fitness is the Base of My Game

Fitness is the Base of My Game

Jul 22, 2013

Every Halloween in Tokyo for the past three years, I’ve dressed up as a lifeguard complete with super short shorts, aviator sunglasses, no shirt, and my nose painted white. You may call me unimaginative, but I’m a cheap bastard from a warm climate and I’ll take every chance I can get to bask in attention while I stroll around in public with as little clothing as socially acceptable. Since most dudes don’t have the nuts to stroll around a party semi-nude, the costume has been a hit wherever I went, year after year. The first two years I donned my trusty lifeguard costume, back when I had the body of an asexual Asian teenager, I received about the same amount of attention from gay dudes as I did from women. The only thing was it was obvious that only the gay dudes wanted to bang my little Asian bottom. I quickly realized that most of the chicks just wanted to take a picture of the funny looking dude in the red shorts so they could post it on Facebook when they ran away before I could ask, “S-s-so what’s your name?” Back in those days of no-game hell, when I thanked my lucky stars when a girl let me park my beef bus in her tuna garage, I figured putting up with the odd sexual advance from a man was better than being completely invisible to women. Also, it gets really hot and uncomfortable when you’re dancing to electro club jams in a polyester Pikachu suit. Last Halloween was different. I had been practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu heavily for about two years, and an interest in improving my performance caused me to optimize my diet. I had also recently begun barbell training to improve my explosive strength. I arrived at that year’s costume party with broad grappler’s shoulders and a narrow waist. Even though I weighed a mere 132 lbs at the time, the difference in reaction was stark. I felt hands running across my shoulders after I posed with slutty nurses for a picture. Apropos of nothing, a tart in cat ears and a mini-skirt pressed her body against mine and said, “Meow!” One...
