How to Survive Toxic Femininity

Toxic Femininity

Toxic femininity is the ability for a woman to send an innocent person off in handcuffs, or to the guillotine, while she herself is lauded with praise. In short, its female powers of manipulation and cunning bent toward selfish and malicious intent.

My Experience Among True Beta Males Has Terrified Me

Before I begin my little story, let me make it clear – I’ve always been skeptical of the red pill alpha / beta dichotomy. Not everybody can fit into these slots so easily. An “alpha” may have beta qualities in some situations, and a “beta” may be alpha in other areas. Continue Reading

When Beautiful Women Are Not Beautiful (Calling Out All Simps)

Today, I fear that we live in the age of simps. These are men who beg, grovel and plead for female attention. It has become so widespread in cities like Los Angeles that even completely average women can acquire 4,000, 5,000 or more Tinder matches in a short amount of time. Continue Reading

left path right path

Even in 2019, there is no shortage of seduction strategies and tips all over the web. The average guy who needs help in this area often requires a lot of work to fix, especially as many men encounter “analysis paralysis” where they spend 90% of their time reading pickup theories and maybe 10% or less of their time talking to girls (it should be the other way around).

5 Ways to Stay Young and Keep Your Vitality

stay young

Getting old is optional. It’s not so much about our bodies getting a little more wrinkly, as it is our mindsets change; sometimes for the worst.

Guys having middle-age crises annoy me. It’s like they release they’ve lost their youth / vitality, and they rapidly try to make up for it in a panic, instead of simply living a life with vitality at all times.

Don’t become the guy blasting bad hip hop from his BMW when he’s 48. Instead, lead a full and complete lifestyle that keeps you feeling young from the very beginning.

good men project

Every now and then an article comes along that leaves me no choice but to hop on the saddle and write about it.

The Good Men Project is another male interest community, but this one brands itself as the anti-MRA, anti-PUA alternative for the self-described “good men” of the Internet (mmhmm…). Continue Reading

Online Dating Heralds the Apocalypse for Western Men

aaaaargh

I’ll preface this by saying I have no affiliation with the site “Sluthate” which appears to be another misguided offshoot of “PUAHate” – which was shut down after one of their members, a guy we know named Elliot Rodger, went on a killing spree in southern California.
