Emma Watson: "I want men to take up this mantle. So...that their sons have permission to be vulnerable and human too — reclaim those parts of themselves they abandoned and in doing so be a more true and complete version of themselves."

But remember that TRP encourages you to watch what people do, not what they say:

http://theothermccain.com/2014/08/19/celebrity-feminist-emma-watson-says-something-really-stupid-on-twitter/

...she has become “Goodwill Ambassador for UN Women,” a job that evidently requires her to say silly feminist stuff on Twitter, e.g.:

Gender equality not only liberates women but also men from prescribed gender stereotypes.

Ri-iiight. Because what guys really need is to be liberated from “prescribed gender stereotypes.” All the hot babes like Emma Watson are crazy for guys who don’t fit “prescribed gender stereotypes,” right? So you will probably be surprised to learn that Emma Watson is dating a bald scrawny impoverished poet the biggest jock at an elite university:

According to a multiple outlets, the 23-year-old former “Harry Potter” film star has recently begun dating a fellow Oxford University student named Matthew Janney. . . .

The UK’s Mirror reported . . . that Janney, 21, is not only a student at the prestigious institution, he is also a star rugby player for their varsity team. Despite his prized athletic skills, Janney has also been recognized for something else: his looks. According to the report, the college student was named “Oxford’s most eligible bachelor” and “best looking player” by the university’s rugby team’s official Twitter account.

In other words, an Alpha male, the epitome of “prescribed gender stereotypes” from which Emma Watson says we need to be liberated.

Smart young fellows figure out that listening to what women say is less important than watching what women do. Women are constantly saying they want sensitive Ashley Wilkes types, even while they’re actually going crazy for the Rhett Butler types. But women are hopelessly fickle and self-contradictory, anyway.

As a man in our new feminist world, you are liberated from your gender stereotype and have permission to be vulnerable and human. And women have permission to dump you for the next nearby alpha male who decided that he doesn't need to be liberated from his gender stereotype.

Hat tip to /u/nix_on_the_glowworm for exposing me to this article, /u/TRPsubmitter for the idea of submitting this, and /u/justmanthings for posting the original quote about "taking up the mantle".

All women are saying "be more sensitive" ONLY to Alpha men. They want to see inside your head which is the purpose of you keeping frame. They get high on your mystery and stoicism but don't like the power you wield. They are NOT saying this for Beta men, who are invisible anyway.

[–]RAGING_ERECTION 215 points215 points [recovered] | Copy

This is true.

When you ask a woman what she's looking for in a man she will start listing off 'beta' qualities and behaviours.

The difference is, she's imagining these coming from the top 1% rich alpha movie star, not your typical obese neckbeard.

[–]Cousieknow41 points42 points  (3 children) | Copy

I want to quote you on this, but giving credit...

[–]TRP VanguardHumanSockPuppet41 points42 points  (1 child) | Copy

What so hard about quoting him?

Whenever I say something brilliant to a woman, I always cite my raging erection as the source.

It's one big shit test to find the true alpha men and weed out the rest.

[–]1BadgerBurger20 points21 points  (0 children) | Copy

This is the true definition of feminism.

[–]2johnnight80 points81 points  (4 children) | Copy

They are saying this not because it would give the man a positive result, but because the aloofness is positively annoying them.

That's like me saying to a girl "stop dressing so sexy".

[–]tallwheel0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I know. It's annoying her to the point of gina tingles, in fact. Girls dressing sexy annoy my dick by making it hard too. I wish they would stop it.

Huhuh. Reminds me of Beavis & Butthead's sexual harassment suit. http://youtu.be/7SF5Yiz3qTQ

[–]1cover200 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Also, they don't like the idea that beta men are acting alpha. They don't like the idea that their intended betabux is instead out speaking directly to women's nether parts and making them tingle.

It's about power. The brain of a woman, especially a powerful capable one, resists the fact that sexual attraction bypasses her control and gives the man power.

But it's legal, and then the woman does consent of her own free will. No drugs, alcohol or threats are used.

[–]yumyumgivemesome1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Agreed. We men like a girl who knows how to dress conservatively and comfortably... as long as she is capable of dressing and looking fuckin hot too.

[–]Mr_Zarika23 points24 points  (3 children) | Copy

Actually I was talking to my mother the other day and the topic of gender roles came up. She's pretty RP (so is my dad) and quite Christian. She mentioned that in the Bible it says that the woman's curse (when they get kicked out of the garden of eden) is to lust after the power men have, but that men will always rule over them.

Thought it was kinda interesting that the Bible noted that so long ago.

EDIT: I realized I commented this on the wrong comment, that's why it seems like it doesn't follow from above. Either way, I found the verse, it's Genesis 3.

It says, "To the woman, He (being God) said, 'I will greatly multiply your pain," and the Hebrew text says, "and childbirth, in pain you shall bring forth children," Then it says, "yet your desire shall be for your husband and he shall rule over you.'"

[–]RedPill1157 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

It's been the standard for forever that women prefer a more follow role in relationships. It's easier, it's less risky. But they always end up trying to get 2 contradictory 2 things:
1. A powerful lead
2. Influence over the lead

[–]1cover200 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

"he shall rule over you" should be taken not just as a statement to the woman but an instruction to the man.

It's our job to lead. If we don't do it and stuff doesn't happen for us, we are ignoring the recipe book and getting the expected (lack of) good results.

[–]sir_wankalot_here22 points23 points  (22 children) | Copy

That is exactly what she is saying. I am liking this Emma Watson more and more. Women should be allowed to fuck alpha males and then get some beta male to support them.

If you where female, would you want your offspring to have genetic material from a waddling American lard ass male or a beta whiney Asian male ? These type of males should be happy that the female even lets them look at her and sometimes even have sex with her.

[–][deleted] 34 points35 points  (12 children) | Copy

Not sure why this is getting down voted. It's mostly sarcasm but this is how women think.

[–]sir_wankalot_here37 points38 points  (11 children) | Copy

People don't like to take a good long hard look in the mirror.

Reverse the roles. Men here are always bitching about how fat American women are. There are just as many lard ass men as there are lard ass women.

People tell me stuff like, I am a wierd old man, I am an asshole, I am arrogant, I am racist, I am elitist, I ended up in a third world country because I fucked up in a first world one. They think by telling the truth they can hurt me.

I made a lot of bad choices when I was young, and you always end up paying for it one way or another. But despite these bad choices I still ended up on my feet.

[–]jerrytheman199825 points26 points  (0 children) | Copy

I have no idea what you're on about but I enjoyed reading it

[–]1cover200 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

The difference is that a lard ass man can overcome it easily. Not just by working out, though that's fine. He can keep his same shape and learn some game and do at least ok. Well enough he'll be motivated to try more things to improve.

Whereas a lard ass woman had better lose weight and fast. Or give up and decide she's really a feminist or a lesbian.

There's no need men have to have the same problems women do. We have our own problems and challenges and our own role to play. We must not be talked into taking on women's problems as well.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (7 children) | Copy

Whenever people start Fuckin with you just say u mad bro? Turn into a human troll whenever someone tries coming at you like that.

[–]sir_wankalot_here5 points6 points  (6 children) | Copy

The world has changed a lot in the last 30+ years, and I am not talking about cellphones, internet and computers. The invention of the telegraph and steam engine had far more impact.

Kids are no longer allowed to walk to school alone, never mind own things like BB guns. When I was a kid, we had bikes and we would go miles from home without adult supervision. Bullying in school, you dealt with it, either by knocking the crap out of the bully or knocking him down verbally. 95% of the stuff that teachers did when I was a kid is now illegal. If a kid was acting up in class the teacher and the kid might publically exchange good natured insults, and a smart teacher would outwit the kid. On the other hand if that kid really need help, the same teacher would be there to have a heart to heart talk with the kid.

One math teacher noticed some kids where illegally betting on horses. So he used racing forms to show them how to calculate odds better, why betting on horses is a bad idea etc. The kids got an interest in math. That teacher probably would be fired today.

Kids today are in a sterile environment and bored shitless.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (5 children) | Copy

Correct.

With the whole bullying issue, I went through it bad but found a great solution.

If I have a boy, he will be getting into a combat sport (boxing, UFC, BJJ). Those kids don't get bullied.

If I have a girl, well... she'll be hot seeing as I'll be having a kid with a smoking Latina. She'll live a healthy lifestyle and stay lean as well.

The way society handles bullying in this day is repulsive. Bullying is a very primal thing. we need to teach our kids to see it as a challenge rather than get all butt hurt about it. I'll take my kid to Disneyland if he beats up a bully. No joke, I'll walk in that office and blurt out loud to my kid "did you make that kid your bitch? I'm taking you to Disneyland!" then watch the principals hamster go in overdrive about how I'm a terrible parent. Fuckin hilarious!

I see it in other things. The first settlers in North America where mainly English. Then every new immigrant group from Irish, Germans, Italians and so on faced a lot of racism for maybe one generation. And then the new immigrants proved their worth, and ideas where exchanged. It was like a cultural/society scale shittest.

With this age of political correctness, the reality is new immigrants are not assimulating even after two plus generarions. And the racism is still there beneath the surface.

The Irish heavily influnced American music. Germans combined with American ideas to make great things like hotdogs and hamburgers. Because of Italians we have spagetti, pizza and other great things.

Before the "politically correct" started to meddle, black and white wages where naturally equalizing. Whites started to go to black communities to enjoy BBQ ribs, Jazz and other black cultural things. Without any government interference many "white" night clubs started to lift the "white only" policy, black musicians played a big part in this when they started performing in white night clubs.

40++ years after affirmative action, the black and white wage gap is now increasing. Beneath the surface there is a lot of hidden racism by both blacks and whites. 200+ years of slavery did not manage to destroy black culture. But 40 years of political correctness and affirmative action seems to be doing the job.

For stating the obvious about Asians I get called "racist". But meanwhile the "politically correct" will visit these countries, and then in "politically correct" language call certain Asian customs "barbaric".

Despite so called political correctness and affirmative action, we live in a far less tolerant world.

[–]feelinglazy0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Do you have any proof to back those statements up? To me it all sounds like an elaborated ruse to promote racism

[–]sir_wankalot_here1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Go do a google for statement made by politicians in the 1930s about ethnic groups like Jews and Italians.

Go do a google for Ford's policy on hiring black workers prior to affirmative action, and black wages.

And lets even take it a back further. Go do a google on Robert E Lee's view on black slavery. Also find out what Robert E Lee did with his slaves before the civil war. Also you will learn Lincoln never freed the slaves. What did Robert E Lee state would happen is slaves where freed like what happened ?

The last major country to eliminate slavery was Brazil. How did they elimate black slavery ? What is the wage gap between Blacks and Non blacks in Brazil today ?

[–]sabresandiego-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

There is obvious differences between races, just like there is obvious differences between men and women. This does not justify hatred towards another race, just like it doesn't justify hatred towards women. Racism and discrimination are the incorrect response because they are based on hate. Hate doesn't solve anything, understanding and adaptation does.

[–]sabresandiego0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Ill give you an upvote just because there is merit in the statement you made.

The truth is that being an asshole, arrogant, racist, elitist is generally a bad thing (although good and bad are merely perspectives). What is good is being assertive, confident, ambitious, and these are traits that people with conviction or contempt may convey. Assholes are generally assertive, elitists are generally ambitious, racists have conviction. Bad things can cause you to display attractive traits which goes back to the idea that women are attracted to assholes. They arent attracted to assholes, they are attracted to the dominance that assholes tend to project. If a good guy had the same amount of assertiveness, ambition, and confidence as the asshole, he actually becomes FAR more attractive than the asshole.

All women are saying "be more sensitive" ONLY to Alpha men.

I don't 100% agree with you. It seems to me like there's also a lot of the opposite case - when she's really happy with the alpha (which tends not to last past a certain period of time, but in that time period) it seems like she doesn't give him that crap, but instead tells the semi-alpha guys around her that in order to make them better orbiters and less likely to leave because they meet another girl.

Have you seen how heavily a super beta guy can get told by women that his beta ways are good, he should be more beta if anything, and yet have nothing similar to say to the alpha guy she's attracted to?

I think Rowling (and lesser extent Watson) play the media and fans like Vivaldi played the violin. The tidbit doesn't matter, it was just juicy enough for fans. Just like Rowling was "outed" as an anonymous author last year when the book sales were going nowhere. As a result, it got more buzz and interest than her first, arguably half-failed non-HP book, and got casual Rowling fans to buy it who wouldn't buy a detective novel, even from her.

Happily Ever After is a static ending people like but doesn't rouse passions or get fans to argue. So shey throw gas on the fire every so often to keep the embers going, but it doesn't change anything.

It may be because Universal opened 2 theme park areas this summer and to raise interest. It may be something else, I don't follow their careers closely enough to know exactly what.

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (1 child) | Copy

I hated how she gave her pseudonym military and police credentials to up the credibility of the book and no one called her out on her shit.

Born in 1968, Robert Galbraith is married with two sons. After several years with the Royal Military Police, he was attached to the SIB (Special Investigation Branch), the plain-clothes branch of the RMP. He left the military in 2003 and has been working since then in the civilian security industry. The idea for protagonist Cormoran Strike grew directly out of his own experiences and those of his military friends who have returned to the civilian world. 'Robert Galbraith' is a pseudonym.

If anybody else did that they'd be ripped to shreds. Oh wait, James Frey, author of "A Million Little Pieces", was for something similiar.

[–][deleted] 36 points37 points  (2 children) | Copy

Ron wasn't alpha AT ALL. Constantly whimpering, complaining, acting like a dumbass. The only alpha thing he did was eat like a boss. That's how a real man eats. stuffs his face and doesn't give a fuck what anyone else thinks.

He fucked up in the fourth movie where Hermione hooked up with the Durmstrang hunk. When you show jealousy like that you're finished. In real life she would of kept sleeping with bad boys until her looks wouldn't allow it.

Ron hooked up with that crazy broad in the sixth movie. That's what she should have been doing since the first one. Oh, don't worry about Hermione, she wouldn't be jealous or upset, she wouldn't even notice.. head too wrapped up in bad boys to care.

As for harry, he would of banged Cho into an inevitable pregnancy. Damn she was hot.

[–][deleted] 28 points29 points  (1 child) | Copy

He has the face of a rugby player... and the attitude that goes along w/ "I've had my nose broken 4 times, its no big deal, and if you make it a big deal, well, I'm tougher than you" AKA confidence in one self and apathy towards the ridicule of others.

You make a good point. I was in Paris a while back (I'm from the US) and every couple hours I thought I saw the most beautiful girl I've ever seen.

[–]sweetleef70 points71 points  (8 children) | Copy

Rejecting "gender stereotypes" is great - as long as it only applies to everyone else.

Along with the obvious contradiction in the fact that the only reason she is given a chance to lecture others to "reject gender stereotypes" is that she fits the stereotypical beautiful woman gender stereotype.

If she were the stereotypical hambeast lesbian with a crew cut and neck tattoos, nobody would give a shit what she said.

[–][deleted] 33 points34 points  (3 children) | Copy

she fits the stereotypical beautiful woman gender stereotype.

Does she though? I've never understood the hardon so many guys have for her. She's cute, but just not all that attractive to me.

Maybe it's because when she played Hermione as a child I was already in my 30s so now when I see her I can't unsee that little girl. Brains can be funny that way.

[–]md61931 points32 points  (1 child) | Copy

She fulfills the beta male fantasy on the kind of girl you could fall in love with. Not only is attractive (by their standards) but she's supposedly smart and somewhat nerdy. It's a girl who, in their mind, would finally understand and appreciate them.

Beta males can't compete in terms of masculinity so they have to hope that similarities will keep a girl around. What they don't understand is that opposites attract.

They project an image onto her that I'm sure she doesn't actually have. She's cute, but not 'hot' which makes her seem attractive yet approachable (in their minds).

Maybe that's WHY she felt obligated to do these things. We paid attention to her because of the issues presented in her speech. The internet wouldn't be blowing up right now if it wasn't her that said it and how she said it. MAYBE, just maybe that is the point. Let's talk about our hypocrisies and broken behaviors instead of staying silent.

[–]sweetleef4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Let's talk about our hypocrisies and broken behaviors instead of staying silent.

That may have motivated her. But the statement is still hypocritical given her actions - she earns obscene amounts of money for being attractive, she spends energy cultivating and marketing that attractiveness, she poses for sexy photos and wears revealing clothes - then she lectures others that they are evil and base for buying what she's selling.

As for "our behaviors", I don't see what is "broken", or how it could be fixed. People pay attention to attractive people - it's been that way since we developed eyes. No amount of talking will change that.

[–]1MarcusDavidson2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Very, very easy to denounce 'sexism' and 'gender stereotypes' when you have made your fortune off the back of your looks. It's a have-your-cake-and-eat-it situation. Get all the fame, money and power mainly through your looks, then turn around and one-up all those actresses who don't 'call out sexism' and 'do your bit'. It's like Raising Awareness, all the benefits of helping people and feeling great, but none of the ensuing criticism or dealing with difficult questions. Win-win.

Other similar behaviours - flying around the planet campaigning against "climate change", being in an Irish pop group and lobbying for 'ending poverty', while practicing massive tax avoidance on earned income, having a token ethnic minority friend while living in a very safe white neighbourhood and sending your children to a private school thereby having a convenient buffer against any future claims of' 'racism', buying 'fairtrade organic' food produce to make yourself feel good about 'making a difference' while driving a big car and living in an inefficient household, criticising 'war' while not understanding or not realising that you are an indirect beneficiary or countless wars your ancestors faught and won, 'liking' some bulllshit about a 'noble cause' on Facebook to 'raise awareness', doing 'ice bucket challenge' to 'raise awareness for charidee' while infact using it as a convenient reason to showcase your expensive property of perfectly maintained abs/breasts/exuberant personality.

I am seeing this type of 'champagne socialism' more and more because of social media.

[–]VegasHostTre4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

I love that term "Champagne Socalism"

I'm Emma Watson denouncing stereotypes because I made my money off of fat nerds who eat this Harry Potter crap up. I would never date any of you though, my rugby boyfriend will kick your ass if you touch me

I'm Al Sharpton claiming racism and fighting for any cause that gets me TV time. Once said cause has died down and nobody's talking about it anymore, I'm done with it as I have kept myself in the news and keep my donations running. Did I mention soon as I made a million dollars I divorced my old black hag of a wife for a much lighter complexioned, younger mixed breed woman?

Im Barack Obama I claim to be about change but I been in office for 1 1/2 terms now and not a damn thing has changed. I still am in the pockets of the largest multinational corporations giving them tax breaks for jobs their shipping overseas. Even though women graduate from college more than men, get more jobs than men, and are just generally treated better than men, I will still spew the irrational logic that society doesn't value women.Remember #bringbackourgirls Now I still haven't tracked down Boko Harem and the women that he has probably sold by now but still.

So a 6 year old girl who lived in a mansion all her life could "potentially" have a better opinion on military strategy than a seasoned war veteran?

The only reason people care about Emma Watson's feminist ideology is because they know her from some movies. Had she been an unattractive fat girl with a lisp, nobody would give a shit.

Correct, anyone can become "knowledgeable" about a subject, however only those with experience and some sort of degree or proof of knowledge should be the ones we listen to.

The message may be the same, but we need to examine the speaker as well. In my opinion, this is just a publicity stunt to keep Emma related in current events.

I doubt she believes it herself, seeing as her boyfriend is the exact opposite of the men she claims there need to be.

She's a spoiled actress, her opinion is no better than a fat chick with a lisp's ideology. People are treating her like she's either the next Jesus or Saddam Hussein exaggeration but in all actuality she doesn't matter.

I don't need someone to tell me how to think, but I'd sooner listen to an expert than some spoiled princess actress. It's very weak-minded of you to apparently 'trust and defend' some publicity stunt of an actress who has yet to find another big role.

You seem to believe that common information (the weather, random trivia and opinion) is the same as specialized information (politics, medicine, psychology, sociology). We both agree that her opinion is bullshit and that she isn't qualified, so what is the problem here?

My point is that she has no experience in the subject, but because she is a celebrity, people pretend she does. Her opinion is not important because she has absolutely no relation to such a subject- she lives a sheltered life full of adoring fans and has an alpha stud boyfriend.

Never once did I mean to imply a college education makes someone a genius- but it's still a college education. I also said that a degree isn't the only way to prove one's knowledge on a subject- any sort of provable experience, document, or other proof is satisfactory enough.

Basically, I trust lawyers to know the law and doctors to know medicine. That doesn't mean I trust them unconditionally; I still learn about these subjects and make my own opinions. But if Emma Watson came out of nowhere on her own (with no help or citation from others) and started making random comments on political theory or how to perform neurosurgery, I wouldn't trust her at all.

[–]Endorsed Contributorredpillbanana[S] 43 points44 points  (5 children) | Copy

This might be the best authority on the subject:

http://www.cypress.com/?rID=34986

The semiconductor business is a tough one with significant competition from the Japanese, Taiwanese, and Koreans. There have been more corporate casualties than survivors. For that reason, our Board of Directors is not a ceremonial watchdog, but a critical management function. The essential criteria for Cypress board membership are as follows:

  • Experience as a CEO of an important technology company.
  • Direct expertise in the semiconductor business based on education and management experience.
  • Direct experience in the management of a company that buys from the semiconductor industry.

A search based on these criteria usually yields a male who is 50-plus years old, has a Masters degree in an engineering science, and has moved up the managerial ladder to the top spot in one or more corporations. Unfortunately, there are currently few minorities and almost no women who chose to be engineering graduate students 30 years ago. (That picture will be dramatically different in 10 years, due to the greater diversification of graduate students in the '80s.) Bluntly stated, a "woman's view" on how to run our semiconductor company does not help us, unless that woman has an advanced technical degree and experience as a CEO. I do realize there are other industries in which the last statement does not hold true. We would quickly embrace the opportunity to include any woman or minority person who could help us as a director, because we pursue talent -- and we don't care in what package that talent comes.

I believe that placing arbitrary racial or gender quotas on corporate boards is fundamentally wrong. Therefore, not only does Cypress not meet your requirements for boardroom diversification, but we are unlikely to, because it is very difficult to find qualified directors, let alone directors that also meet investors' racial and gender preferences.

Consider charitable donations. When the U.S. economy shrinks, the dollars available to charity shrink faster, including those dollars earmarked for the Sisters of St. Francis. If all companies in the U.S. were forced to operate according to some arbitrary social agenda, rather than for profit, all American companies would operate at a disadvantage to their foreign competitors, all Americans would become less well off (some laid off), and charitable giving would decline precipitously. Making Americans poorer and reducing charitable giving in order to force companies to follow an arbitrary social agenda is fundamentally wrong.

That's pretty much what happened.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: TRP isn't about changing women or the world. It's not even about criticizing women. It's about understanding them.

If women were out there fucking the pasty-white math nerds, then every thread on TRP would be about how to learn calculus.

I honestly don't care if women like tall guys or short guys or confident guys or shy guys or smart guys or dumb guys. Women can like whatever they want. But having learned that women like tall, confident, alpha, badboys - I resolve to change my behavior. I am conscious of my posture so that I look at tall and confident as possible. And I exhibit other behaviors that make me more attractive.

Note also (mostly for the idiot blue pillers who lurk here): it's really not useful to me that a tiny minority of women actually do like shy, meek, math nerds. If I happen to meet such a girl, I will happily adjust my approach. You (you idiot blue pillers) waste everyone's time when you say that, and you give false hope to betas - which is frankly kind of a mean thing to do.

You must be new to feminism, lol. They'll just continue to blame "the patriarchy" for creating a systematic bla bla bla.

Recently their tactic to say that men dieing in wars doesn't matter is to say that women couldn't join the army, but they were held back by an oppressive patriarchy - otherwise women would have been beating down the door to get shot in the face for low pay!

[–]Hoodwink1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

I don't doubt Clinton will be the next president if she is nominated. The problem is getting nominated - she is more to the right than Obama. She can't really claim the progressives or any populist stances. It's going to be FEMINISM and WOMAN PRESIDENT and maybe she'll try to be SUPER TOUGH GIRL ON ISIS/ISIL. The pandering will be obvious and she has an air of deceit to everything she says. So, a genuinely good candidate with cash will have a good chance.

Also, Democrats played the 'minority' card already. They might be a lot less enthusiastic about the next one. The only problem is that the male vote will probably be split on purpose by strategists.

I worked with a guy years ago who went through a pretty mad divorce. Details aside, there was apparently a time where he happened to open up to two of his workmates (ladies) who he'd known for 10+ years and who offered the proverbial shoulder to cry on.

IT was interesting that, after this event, a lot of the women at that place referred to him constantly as "creepy" and "I wouldn't want to be alone with him" suggesting he was not trustworthy to be alone with. As all of this would batter him and he became more reclusive, the "creepier" women thought he was.

All because he let down his guard, broke his gender stereotype and did exactly as these women wanted.

This is just an International shit test of epic proportions. Lets see what men will take this advice, break frame, and expose themselves as betas.

Of all the feminist harpies out there, Emma isn't so bad. She admits the flaws in feminism, even to go so far as to say "We are searching for a word to unite us", etc etc.

But her platform is one of social perception and stigma, so it's pretty useless. People have been free to act how they want for millenia, and they have chosen to act this way time and time again.

[–]Endorsed Contributorredpillbanana[S] 22 points23 points  (7 children) | Copy

Time will tell, though I think she might be even worse.

She acknowledges the issues that men face, then tries to recruit men to the feminist cause which does nothing and will continue to do nothing for men.

The whole name of the campaign, "HeForShe", indicates exactly what she stands for.

[–]Dream4eva14 points15 points  (2 children) | Copy

Exactly, how can you acknowledge in one sentence that we need a word to unite us and in the next tout a slogan which places the onus on men to ensure equality.

The whole movement is inherently anti-feminist. 'heforshe' takes away responsibility from women. 'heforshe' want men to do the work in a movement where its foundations come from self empowerment of women and women liberating themselves.

[–]joncho1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Having men do the work is anti-feminist?. Last time I checked feminist support alimony.

[–]Azothlike1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I agree on some points. I still feel it's the "lesser of two evils", in comparison to what we're usually confronted with(rape-culture screaming harpies, etc).

I still feel that "men have suffered unfair emotional expectations of them and we should end it", while half-hearted and bullshit, is much closer to the reality of "men have suffered legal and physical inequality in many ways and we should end those" than any other contender that crazy feminists will align with, at the moment.

At the VERY LEAST, a public figure openly admitting to the bad image of feminism is enough to rightfully shame some of it.

Time will tell if the message swings back towards solipsistic demands or not, of course.

[–]scum101 2 points2 points [recovered] | Copy

To be fair, her speech is aimed at all nations and societies. Unlike many westerns society, where feminism has become something more then equality of gender, many countries have a long way to go in terms of woman's right. I honestly despise feminism in north america, but i know there are places in this world where i fully support the feminist movement.

I think we all agree on the need for equal opportunity between sexes. But that has long been achieved in the western world. Unfortunately the feminist movement here has gradually turned into a "woman supremacy" movement, conflicted between their poor understanding of gender differences and needs. That's why her speech seems so irrelevant to us.

[–]Endorsed Contributorredpillbanana[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

I agree with what you're saying, and it should also be pointed out that many countries have a long way to go in terms of men's rights as well. Look at the men being trafficked in the fishing industry or the boys working as slaves for cocoa production on the Ivory Coast. To call a program for gender equality "HeForShe" is almost insulting.

[–]RedPill1155 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah, that's the thing. In those countries where women have things horrible, feminism pointedly leaves out that men also have things horribly.

It's like when those schoolgirls got kidnapped and the president got involved - before that these guys had been kidnapping or killing boys, and nobody cared enough for it to be an issue. Women were treated exactly like they've always been treated - as the gender who's lives are considered more valuable than men's.

In countries where women are brutalized by invading armies, often those same armies kidnap boys and force them to fight in battle - or die. I've read that they will force the boys to fight each other to the death - the loser is dead, the winner it's part of his forced indoctrination into their army.

Their are shitty things happening in the world. But usually if they're happening to women, their is an equivalent happening even worse to men.

[–]Dark_Shroud8 points9 points  (6 children) | Copy

She's probably worse. Let's take an evaluation of her so far.

Her life is unique because her parents were smart in raising her. So she grew up comfortable but didn't have access to her money more than a $75 a week. While her parents had her money go into savings. She does films, voice acting, & modeling.

So now she's worth $60 million USD.

She's always been comfortable and now lives very well in a pent house that probably costs more than I'll ever make in one life time. She is used to being around power players. She's very appealing on every level. Looks, her voice, & she's smart. Doors have just opened for her. Lastly she has good genes, she'll be looking good into her late 30s possibly 40s if she properly cares for her skin.

This is not the kind of person that should be lecturing anyone.

You're missing the point. We all know women prefer to date alphas.

The point of this post is that WHILE she dates alphas, she is also being disingenuous in telling men that "being alpha doesn't matter! let down your guard!"

Many inexperienced guys fall prey to this; they think that by becoming "supportive allies" and by following what women say (speeches such as this), that women will respond to them and like them.

However, reality is that women TELL men to be vulnerable and to "redefine masculinity" because that maintains womens' beta orbiters. Then they go on to date the same alphas they would in the first place.

So the TL;DR is that women are often disingenuous in the "advice" they give to men about redefining masculinity. It's redefining it for THEIR benefit not ours. Cause they will still go after the same dudes.

[–]triangleman838 points9 points  (3 children) | Copy

Ok so would you call what Emma is doing some kind of massively broadcast shit test? Not that she has the need to vet millions of men, but it would essentially add to her beta orbiter count. I can see how lots of women do this on the smaller scale too, as in on facebook.

  1. Girl posts status update complaining about her current alpha fux not appreciating her in some way (duh he's an alpha)

  2. Beta orbiters come out from the woodwork to give support.

  3. Any new names that support her are added to her beta orbiter list, never to be considered for fux.

[–]jcrpta1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I don't think it's anywhere near as thought through as that.

Women are very social creatures (by which I mean "they crave to be accepted as part of a group", not "they like to go out drinking with their friends every night"), and as such very much aware of what society thinks.

We know what happens when someone publicly dissents from the socially acceptable view - hell, we see rp ideas absolutely buried and proponents crucified if they so much as breathe the word "red". And society is very clear on what you're supposed to think and say about what women want in a man, while being extremely tolerant of women doing the exact opposite.

So, what does a socially aware girl who's been engaged by the UN to tell society what to think say? Well, what do you think she's going to say? It ain't gonna be "To hell with men who are in touch with their feelings, give me a rugby player any day".

True, but it's a good thing to point out. I saw way too much "wow, Emma watson is acknowledging some flaws in feminism" as if she's on our side or something like that. More dangerous is her little bit about "men are being told to 'man up' and it's okay to be vulnerable", because some guys will see that and be like "wow, i'm so relieved!"

I think it's still important to point out that the "advice" she's giving is totally wrong and fool's gold, even though it seems enticing.

[–]Endorsed Contributorredpillbanana[S] 134 points135 points  (33 children) | Copy

Who I expect her to date depends on whether I listen to her words or TRP theory. Looks like TRP theory wins this time.

Also, I don't think fame adds much to a woman's SMV besides (1) having tons of publicity photos that makes her look perfect, and (2) bragging rights for the guy.

A great relevant comment from Chateau Heartiste's blog: http://heartiste.wordpress.com/2013/12/02/how-super-alpha-males-are-similar-to-hot-babes/

Women, would you rather date Paul Walker (pre-dead, of course) or a watier that looked exactly like Paul Walker?

Men, would you rather date Scarlett Johanssen, or a waitress that looked exactly like Scarlett Johanssen?

...and the answers to these questions demonstrate one of the fundamental differences between women and men.

[–]the99percent135 points36 points  (1 child) | Copy

you are looking from a male perspective.. where male celebrities don't care who they date.

women on the other hand rarely date down. This oxford schlub has got his life set.. all he needs to say is I used to fuck Emma Watson and the girls will go into a feeding frenzy.

[–]watersign3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

he was probably banging all the girls before emma came along and will continue to do so after

[–]jmg83 29 points29 points [recovered] | Copy

Easy. The waitress who looks exactly like the hot famous chick. A) I don't need motherfuckers like TMZ looking into my business. B) People will say Scarlett is carrying me, even if I don't accept a penny of her money C) Even if I had money, as in I won the lottery and met SJ a day later by chance, I'm not into the whole Hollywood lifestyle. My friend once told me that when SJ visits London, she stays in an 18k a night hotel. Assuming this is true, as a guy who's never had much money, I can't imagine such extravagance. Scarlett, a woman my age who's been a movie star since she was a teenager, probably doesn't think twice about such things. Her waitress doppelganger, on the other hand, is more likely to know where I'm coming from.

[–]ISODAK8 points9 points  (2 children) | Copy

This was roughly my thought as well. SJ is likely to be full of herself, while a waitress will be more likely to see you as having higher SMV.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (1 child) | Copy

Agreed. It's not even really an ego thing on my part, it's just that things that would be a big deal to me are taken completely for granted by Hollywood stars. A lot of other people my age are struggling to make ends meet, pay off mortgages, etc. Scarlett Johnasson could outright buy most houses around here by just doing a fucking TV commercial. When I look back at the shit I've had to do in life like bullshitting my way into gigs for cheaper or for free, going to X supermarket instead of y to save money, waking up earlier and commuting the long way to work because it's 50% cheaper, tricks for travelling on trains for free, smuggling drinks into nightclubs, surviving on a pittance and a shitload lot of other things. A movie star just. wouldn't. get it. We'd basically have very little in common. This isn't to say she's not a nice woman, To return to the earlier example made by another poster, the Paul Walker clone who works as a bartender would make a nice mantoy for most women, but they'd start to see themselves as better than him. Hell, they'd choose the real Paul Walker (if he still lived) over his minimum wage clone for the exact reasons that most men would chose the waitress lookalike over the celebrity, which tells you all you need to know about men and women.

[–]ISODAK2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

True about differences. Thought now that I think about it, one thing I've heard about actors is they tend to have a lot of charisma, and are a lot of fun to talk to (even for the non-celebrity-obsessed like myself). So I guess it's worth pointing out that there's more than looks: I'm sure SJ would beat the waitress in general social skills and knowing how to be sexy. But as someone else pointed out, she can be trained.

SJ would probably be more fun in the short run, but waitress wins long-term.

This is something most women do not understand. I don't give a shit about your achievements, career, knowledge or degrees.

I will inevitably have to teach you how to be an appropriate woman, so I might as well teach you all the rest as well while I am at it.

You've got a career going? Well, giod for you and I surely appreciate that you've got goals. Does it change your attraction to me in any way? Hell no.

[–][deleted] 22 points23 points  (8 children) | Copy

I don't think its fair to say we don't care at all. Because someone with those academic achievements will likely be more intelligent and men do value intelligence.

But what we don't care about is fame. I think most men would actually prefer the complete opposite of fame, whatever that is.

[–]Endorsed Contributorvandaalen29 points30 points  (3 children) | Copy

I don't think that an academic degree and intelligence behave proportional.

With today's educational system a degree solely prooves that you are able to memorize and things and echo pre-digestes knowledge.

Also for matters of attraction and SMV intelligence is not a necessary trait. Just look how many successful high-SMV men have total dipshits by their side and seem to be completely happy.

It might be a trait that you are looking for if you conciously want to start a family, but for a plate I don't care if her IQ is next to potatoe.

[–]damnyouresickbro16 points17 points  (0 children) | Copy

He says men will do anything for a woman, and famous women like Angelina Jolie can put famous men under her

Wrong dude, you can talk your way out of pussy easily even if you are attractive. Women believe it or not aren't as shallow as men are when it comes to looks, why? Because men are bigger than out looks, women aren't. We learn to be charming, funny, witty, intelligent, well spoken and other things all in order to get pussy. Women simple have to stay in shape. Now an attractive man will get on average more then a unattractive man but A confident man will get the most. We've all seen hot girls with ugly dudes and say wtf? and when we ask she always says "there's just something about him" Woman dont have that ability. When do you ever see a great looking male with a fat, ugly, but funny or intelligent women? Never because our values are different.

"Emma Watson says, "Gender equality not only liberates women but also men from prescribed gender stereotypes" as she dates an alpha male jock"

Red Pill, you really need to improve your analyzing skills:

1º) Feminism comprises the female sexual right (... to respond: "No, I don't want to have sex with you"). Where on Earth does it say this female sexual right contradicts the female hypergamous preference for alpha? Women use their feminist sexual right to respond "No, I don't want to have sex with you" for rejecting betas. Feminism fights oppressionTM, don't forget.

2º) Feminism says women are not inferior. Where on Earth does it say that statement contradicts the female hypergamous preference for alpha? Feminism means "women are not inferior to inferior men (betas) ". You think women are stupid?. Tangentially, feminists use their gender equality claim for demanding bux from inferior men (betas).

3º) What if Emma is dating an alpha? women don't use feminism for rejecting alphas, but for rejecting betas. It's their right, it's their freedom, it's their hypergamy, and it's their feminism, right?

4º) In short: "feminism is not incompatible with female hypergamous preference for alpha; feminism is an ideological catalog women use for rejecting beta semen and demanding beta bux. Because it's women's freedom, it's women's right, and it's women's preferences. Feminism is the female agenda for institutionalizing "Alpha fux-beta bux" ".

Don't underestimate female ancestral intelligence about males. You guys think you are winning but women were winning all the fucking time. You can win women about science, technology and progress, but not about men and man rank; cause it's women's survival. Alpha fux, beta Nobels.

https://www.quora.com/Logic/Is-calling-someone-a-hypocrite-a-fallacy

This is a fallacy:

  1. George says we should wear raincoats.
  2. George doesn't wear a raincoat.
  3. Therefore, we shouldn't wear raincoats.

This isn't.

  1. George says we should wear raincoats.
  2. George doesn't wear a raincoat.
  3. Therefore, we shouldn't trust George.

The former is an argument about wearing raincoats. The latter is an argument about George's character.

We're saying:

  • Emma is preaching that men should not be trapped in their gender roles but she dates a manly man who is very typical of his gender role, so she's a hypocrite.
  • Emma has said nothing to prove that women would love to date sensitive and vulnerable men, so her argument is weak anyway.
  • Emma is part of a majority of women who encourage men to be vulnerable but date manly men, which proves that women like traditionally manly men.

[–]shlomif0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Fine, so Emma Watson is a "hypocrite". If I were her, I would embrace this newfound label and say "I'm a hypocrite and damn proud of it. Here's a nickel, kid - but yourself a candy."

As someone who took some criticisms to his advantage - see http://www.shlomifish.org/me/rindolf/#rindolf_the_evil_reindeer and http://www.shlomifish.org/me/rindolf/#rindolf_aim_very_high_hitlower I think that antagonising such criticisms tends to just backfires. (I also wrote fun stuff about Grammar Nazism.

Anyway, carrying the "hypocrite" label doesn't make Emma any less of an amazing, beautiful, wonderful, awesome/smashing/cool person, whom I have a lot of respect and admiration for. I'm pretty sure her boyfriend is a very nice guy (or otherwise she would probably not be dating him as she does get first choice), and I wish them the best of luck in their relationship.

Just for the record, we cannot rule out that her boyfriend has a sensitive side to him. I recently talked with a very nice lady on Facebook who: 1. Has a My Little Pony ponies on her facebook page. 2. Is drawing technical diagrams for a living. 3. Looked really sexy in a photo of her with a red shirt and glasses; and — 4. Recently got a new belt in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taekwondo . Male IDF soldiers have been known to cry during funerals, and some of the toughest U.S. male and heterosexual combat fighters, love My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

We live in interesting (and amazing) times where the lines between what is considered masculine and what is considered feminine are blurred, and a person can exhibit some of both.


If you change your attitude and lookout on life and see the good in every person and every situation, then your life will really improve. Finding faults in every thing is cynicism and will only make you less happy. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pygmalion_effect and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Shlomif/Saladin_Style .

Like I said, men are free to be what they are, and women are free to reject the ones that don't live up to the male gender stereotype.

Being rejected romantically for being sensitive and vulnerable doesn't exactly encourage men to be sensitive and vulnerable.

suggests to me that you only want to be sensitive and vulnerable if it gets you laid more often

This is similar to saying that you only want to be a slacker if you get money for it. Shouldn't you be true to yourself and slack as much as your true nature desires, and not try to live up to expectations by working?

Admittedly the third point could be stated a bit better. The fact that Emma says that men should be free to cast off their gender stereotypes and then goes on to date a man who is the archetype for the gender stereotype - it isn't proof that men should stick to their gender stereotype, but it is one more data point in a sea of similar data. That's basically what I was trying to say with point #3.

Hmm, I was actually assuming that men would love to be able to show their vulnerable side to women, but they don't because they know how unattractive it is to women. Similarly, people would love to slack, but they don't because they won't get paid. That's the analogy.

Females can spew whatever they want. I'm 5'5" so I need to be mire strict about my masculinity. I plan on getting tattoos, I work out to the breaking point and then I go further, focus on grooming and making that dough. Anything other than that and women see me subconsciously as a failure.

Emma Watson, you were my unicorn from age 9 til 17. But you now confirm that those don't exist. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some heavy squatting to do and a 1600 calorie protein shake to swivel down.

It's because the guys who used to get them were prisoners, gang members, soldiers, and other generally tough guys who had to stick together. Having a tattoo wasn't socially acceptable so you had to have a good reason to get one, and the usual reason was to show others that you were not to be messed with.

Even though it is socially acceptable to get a tattoo now, people associate tattoos with toughness.

No, there are gender stereotypes. I Guarantee, I guaran-damn-tee that the moment the man of one of these feminist chicks falls out of his gender stereotype, they will drop him with the quickness and have no compassion. They'll say something like, "I'm just not attracted to you anymore," or "the way you're acting just isn't attractive." Why is that? Because there are fucking gender roles and there is no amount of trying to make everyone equal going to change that.

What you say is very reasonable. Emma is a vastly more reasonable than Sarkeesian or Amanda Marcotte.

My worry is that feminism is trying to co-opt the MRM. Why have an MRM when feminism is here to address all your gender issues? In this way, Emma might be even more dangerous than a hardcore feminist.

Even Big Red addresses many MRM issues in this horrifying video, with the implication that feminism has it all figured out:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvYyGTmcP80

You've probably seen the U of T protest as well - there's a woman in that video who basically says, why listen to Warren Farrell when feminism has the answers?

The truth is that the MRM is forcing their hand, otherwise they would have never thrown men a bone in the first place. The MRM should continue to keep up the pressure and criticize what needs to be criticized.

The MRM exists because feminism did a very bad job addressing gender issues for men. Without the MRM, feminism would have never made any concessions, and even with the MRM, they'll continue to do a horrible job addressing men's issues, perhaps talking the talk but not walking the walk.

Interesting point. The kinder, gentler feminist is certainly more appealing than the Big Red shut-the-fuck-up feminist.

However, the alternative is for there to be a small minority of angry feminists and the rest of the women not really identifying as feminists.

Politics makes for strange bedfellows. Is the enemy of my enemy really my friend? MRAs and hardcore feminists joining sides to denounce the kinder, gentler feminism?

To begin with, the name “He For She” is problematic, no matter how you slice it. Some may call these criticisms divisive and nitpicky, but there is nothing feminist about a campaign that reinforces a gender binary that is harmful to people whose gender identities don’t fit into such tidy boxes. When we reinforce the idea that only people who neatly fit the gender binary are worthy of being protected and supported, we erase and exclude the people who are at most risk of patriarchal violence and oppression.

While I have problems with the He For She name, she takes it to a whole new level. I'm having trouble believing that this is not an Onion article.

As I mentioned elsewhere in this thread:

[–]tallwheel0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Maybe he does on occasion, but he can because his other qualities likely make him still perceived overall as alpha.

The problem is that she is giving terrible advice to the majority of men who are not alphas in the first place. They don't have the leeway to show many beta qualities without just making themselves look even more beta than they probably already appear.

[–]thecommonreactor-1 points0 points  (4 children) | Copy

I see what you're saying, but is it really fair to call this guy an "alpha male" only because he's been described as good-looking and plays a sport?

Except that guy is hot.

I'm not convinced that having an alpha or Beta character have a significative influence compared to being HOT or NOT (Maybe in the long terme, sure )

A sensitive hot guy would fare better than an average/ugly guy with Alpha characters. And the more you're hot, the more you are perceived Alpha anyway.

Please keep in mind that while "Alpha" or "Beta" character is not always linear, extreme, being hot or not is. The same guy can be perceived as a "sensitive" or "very shy", or just "mysterious" by different girls, while the hot guy will be perceived as hot by the majority of girls.

I don't see how your examples proves anything.

When you'll find an example of an average looking guy with "Alpha" characteristics faring better than a hot guy with less alpha characteristics, then you could score a point.

All what this prooves is that being hot is the most important thing in sentimental relationships, the rest is speculation.

Way to argue irrelevant points and extremes...

She's right. Any guy knows first hand the pressure to be stoic regardless of what happens to them. Sure, that pressure is largely generated by the attraction that that persona has to many women. However, it doesn't have to define a person. Someone who has learned to be strong out of necessity should be able admit weakness sometimes without feeling 'lesser'... that is the point she's making. A little balance is healthy.

Who she is dating is irrelevant. It's sad to see people saying that since she supports men showing some emotion from time to time that she should then be attracted to that personality over all others.

[–]Endorsed Contributorredpillbanana[S] 4 points5 points  (9 children) | Copy

Who she is dating is quite relevant.

She's basically giving guys bad advice that will get them dumped by their girlfriends while demonstrating that women don't go for vulnerable and sensitive guys.

It would be like me saying, "Hey, you don't have to be young and traditionally beautiful to be happy," as I date a 18 year old Ms. Universe contestant.

[–]Core_ten1 point2 points  (8 children) | Copy

Do you know the guy she is dating? Does the fact that he is an athlete and attractive somehow exclude him from being sensitive or emotional?

Her statement "Gender equality not only liberates women but also men from prescribed gender stereotypes." is absolutely true. The macho man stereotype being constantly reinforced as the only acceptable persona is harmful to men.. but here's the nuance that is key: being strong emotionally is still important (for everyone!). Sure it's okay to show emotion, but being overly emotional is just as unhealthy as bottling your emotions up.

You saying "Hey, you don't have to be young and traditionally beautiful to be happy," as [you] date a 18 year old Ms. Universe contestant." is perfectly fine. Does your relationship and taste in women mean that a non-traditional woman will never find someone who is attracted to her? No.. of course not.

When men show emotion, women see it as weakness and they dump the men. How is gender equality going to fix this? Gender equality isn't going to make women love short men or men love fat women either. It's a great ideal, but not something that can be fixed by awareness campaigns or legislation.

Now imagine that, for the woman's entire life, men have been telling her this and then going off and dating young beauty contestants, and then this situation comes up, in a UN speech no less. How would that make her feel?

[–]Core_ten0 points1 point  (6 children) | Copy

"It is possible to be who he is and be a vulnerable person, but not likely."

Why is this not likely? The point she is making is that everyone is vulnerable sometimes. Everyone has emotions. Some people are stronger more regularly, but nobody is always strong.

"When men show emotion, women see it as weakness and they dump the men."

Sorry but that is bullshit. People (regardless of gender) appreciate deep emotional connections with other people. When I was in high school I thought the same way as you. I thought "I'm a sensitive guy, but why don't women seem to appreciate that?". Later on in life I made the realization that those sensitive displays are not attractive in many situations (not just sexual situations but day to day ones as well). Being emotionally strong and outgoing is important for any person trying to attract another (or make friends, or give a presentation at work/school, etc). The sensitivity comes in later, when you and said person are more comfortable sharing those emotions.

"Now imagine that, for the woman's entire life, men have been telling her this and then going off and dating young beauty contestants..." Well then those men just don't like her style, or her looks, or her personality. Well guess what? There are other people out there that sure would. Everyone gets rejected sometimes, even charismatic people. The thing is to pick yourself up and try again. Yes, process the sadness if you need to, but don't let it start to define you. We can all be strong if we work at it (but not all the time, which is Emma Watson's point).

Edit: added bracketed text after "...any person trying to attract another("

[–]Endorsed Contributorredpillbanana[S] 3 points4 points  (5 children) | Copy

I could address all of your points individually, but I'll just say this:

TRP speaks in absolutes but actually deals in probabilities. Women don't like beta schmucks - well, there's probably women out there who love beta schmucks, but most of them don't.

Women don't like vulnerability and sensitivity. Okay, maybe there are women that eat that up, but most of them don't, and you'd be better off following the rule than the exception. I don't have any scientific data on this, it's just based on personal experience, the other couples that I've observed, and material I've read. It's also a core tenet of this sub.

Well then those men just don't like her style, or her looks, or her personality. Well guess what? There are other people out there that sure would.

This is the same bad advice that gets people into trouble. It's about what is most probable. Saying "everyone is different, be yourself" is never helpful. Saying "men like X, Y, and Z" is much more helpful, even if there are a minority of cases where it is not true.

[–]Core_ten-2 points-1 points  (4 children) | Copy

The idea of an alpha or beta person should be obsolete. Yes, I know it's not. And yes, many women go for physically stronger and outgoing guys. Social skills can be learned though.. nobody is 'beta' by birth.

Yes, being physically unattractive can be a huge disadvantage... yes it will be harder to find people who want to be with you in that case.. but that doesn't make it impossible, and it doesn't mean you can't be charismatic or funny or any other generally attractive traits (that can be developed by working on oneself).

"Women don't like vulnerability and sensitivity." As I thoroughly argued earlier, yes they do (see large middle paragraph in my last post). Everyone does, at the right times and in the right situations. Being overly emotional all the time is not attractive no matter who you are.

"It's about what is most probable... Saying "men like X, Y, and Z" is much more helpful". If all you care about are probabilities of attracting people, then you're not really in it for the emotions eh? That kind of thinking is more about getting laid, in which case you're not valuing the other person for anything beyond what they can do for you... which is extremely dickish and not senstive at all.

Being sensitive and being strong should both have their times to be expressed by any person. The ideas supported in gender stereotypes (men are emotionally strong, women are emotionally weak) put pressure on people to abandon parts of who they are and focus too much on others. Balance is the key. Alpha and beta are trivial concepts when you can rise to a challenge of emotional expression or stoicism when situations demand. Everyone faces these challenges... regardless of gender, race, sexuality, age, etc. W'ere all just human.

Yes, and you have to know what is attractive in order to work on those characteristics. Thus, you need hard truths about what most people like and what they don't, not "hey, there's someone out there who will find you attractive!"

"Women don't like vulnerability and sensitivity." As I thoroughly argued earlier, yes they do (see large middle paragraph in my last post). Everyone does, at the right times and in the right situations. Being overly emotional all the time is not attractive no matter who you are.

Not convinced, and your advice leads to no concrete actions that can improve your life.

[–]Core_ten1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

"Yes, and you have to know what is attractive in order to work on those characteristics."

True, good point. Yes those traits can't be generated solely from within. Studying the behaviours of other people is definitely important for informing yourself. Personal strength still needs to be in the mix though, otherwise you're just acting.

"Not convinced, and your advice leads to no concrete actions that can improve your life."

Fair enough. Although I would say that acknowledging that emotional expression and retention should be situation dependent can improve your life. It definitely improved mine. By observing people and acting in social situations I became better at judging when and to what degree to express emotions, or not to.

"There are huge leaps of logic between all 4 sentences. Maybe you can figure out what they are."

Alright, I got a little bit ahead of myself there. No personal slight meant. I guess the point I was trying to make is that frequency isn't everything. Although I do sympathize with those people who find it so tough to connect with others that they very rarely have strong emotional connections. I've been there. Most people have at some point. Things will change though. Like you mentioned, learning behaviour from others can help immensely, but self improvement through honest contemplation about oneself shouldn't be overlooked.

"Again, nothing here leads to concrete actions that can improve your life, thus, useless."

Here I was trying to illustrate that even though it may not seem so, everybody experiences the same/similar pains/challenges. Those who many would call 'alpha' will deal with social and emotional issues just like the rest of humanity. It's easy to forget that. If you can keep that in mind when dealing with other people, you will prejudge them less. Prejudging leads to a lot of mis-communication, where there could have been strong connection.
