OK done with reading
BTW that poster, I was reading with a zoomed in browser (easier on the eyes as it's nearly 1am here), so I didn't see the whole image at once:
Anyway, in full, I agree that it's darkly funny. I think I've heard or seen it before, or maybe something very similar. In what way did it cause a shitstorm?
And if you ask often enough, SOMEONE is eventually going to say yes, and you'll get your rocks off without having to be a shitneck about it.
We had this ugly little bastard at Ft Drum that would do exactly that. Hit the bar, ask every girl in the place for some loving. If the girl wasn't interested, he'd just move on to the next.
He never went home alone, and in fact usually left early with someone. Being bold & forthright about things can pay off, as soon as you find someone that's there for the exact same reason you are there.
That's not PUA, of course. He employed no "tricks". He would sit next to a girl, strike up a conversation, and then flat out ask if she wanted to go somewhere and get her nasty on. He had learned, you see, that bit of knowledge that evades the PUA-tards: Women like sex, too, and tricks are not required.
But PUA tards are not capable of seeing that, because they view women as conquests to attain, not human beings with the same drives as any other human being.
Actually that's incorrect. I read one of those "pick up guides" over a decade ago, and one of the first things it said was if you want to pick up women, you need to get out there, try often and not be afraid to fail often. There was even a story in it about a guy with pretty much that same "technique". The other thing it said was indeed that women like sex too, and everybody wants to have a good time. Soon after that it started with the fake psychology and bullshit stories and "tricks" and all that. I never really bought into those. But I dunno, I guess I'm just good at taking the right parts with a bucket of salt and sifting out the actual bits of good info (actually pretty easy: it's the parts you actually can believe) cause believe it or not, at the time it taught me a few useful things, mostly about confidence and basic social skills. Which is also why I kind of take offence to TEXAS FAIRIES saying earlier that all
PUA-types are proto-rapists.
The one thing PD IS a good recipe for is feminism the way I understand it1: All humans have all the same rights and responsibilities, regardless of gender, orientation, race, or anything else.Agreed. Equal is Equal and should be Equal for everyone. Anything else is bullshit.
No, not "or anything else": age, health and probably some other things are exceptions that can give different humans a different set of rights and responsibilities.
Interestingly enough, yesterday somebody told me about a difference in point of view in the US versus here (not sure if they meant Europe or NL in particular) that kind of ties in with that sentiment: In the US "freedom" is stated in terms of "freedom of/to
X" (freedom of speech, freedom to bear arms, etc) while here we consider our freedoms to be (mostly) "freedom from
X" (freedom from illness, freedom from poverty, etc).
But that's getting a bit off-topic for this thread.
I have to say I find tarring and feathering fascinating.
I wonder if tarring on its own was a thing for a while, and then some cruel bastard with a strange streak of humor was like "Hey, it would be really fucking awesome if we added feathers to this, while the pitch is still hot and sticky."
It's really horrible, and yet there is a hint of whimsy... or am I the only one who sees this?
No. In fact, there's a Franco-Belgian comic Lucky Luke
, quite popular in Europe (at least when I was a kid), about a cowboy in the wild west, and the criminals in that cartoon are generally tarred-and-feathered to comedic effect.
