Imagine I posted something like "hey guys, you know, the most important thing in TRP is to make feminists like you. Really, that's the key metric you should try to optimize for. Everything else is negligible.
You will be right to respond with "dude, why do you attach such importance to what others think of you, especially any one particular group, most especially this specific group that doesn't have your best interest at heart at all? This is not TRP, it's the opposite". I'd get a lot of well-deserved downvotes and a swift deletion.
Yet somehow we had front page post declaring MGTOW illegitimate because women don't like them and won't fuck them. According to the author, and whoever upvoted him to XXX points, you must get a bunch of women's approval - the proverbial note from your mommy - in order to GYOW.
Otherwise, you're just an incel loser.
There is no better way to give women all the power: letting them define you, granting them gatekeeper authority over the various paths and choices of your life.
Whoever wrote this post had women successful install themselves as rulers in his mind.
Unfortunately, this isn't uncommon. Even here we have the PUA industry instill this notion that our success with women defines us. That you're either a Chad Thundercock banging all the Stacies, or an incel loser who should be euthanized. Of course, then only possible choice then is to become Chad, which you can do buy buying every PUA product sold by the self-designated "Chad".
Like all industries, the PUA industry aims to disempower you, convince you that you have no value by yourself, and your only path to gain any value is to pay for their products and services. Your worth depends on women, and they are currently rating you one-star, so clearly you have no choice but to pay thousands of dollars to a worthy man like PUA coach ChadTC to validate you as someone above the absolute garbage you currently are. Then a bunch of women will stamp your PUA validation note with their pussies, and congrats, you are now a proper man.
Look, if you read my posts, you know that I'm very focused on game and women. I'm one of these guys who doesn't enjoy fancy food, Netflix, or having female friends. The social interaction I enjoy above all else is with an attractive young lady I'm either seducing or already fucking. I LOVE the game. Nearly everything I posted here is about it.
I'm not a good looking man. I'm fit, but way short and my face is ugly. But because I put so much effort and thought into it, I outperformed nearly all men in my looks category. To put it bluntly, I'm at best a 4 yet at various points in my life I was regularly hooking up with 9s.
So yeah, I went from kissless incel to the player who fucks Chad's girlfriend. Some guys would let it get to their heads: "wow, I'm the shit, I HAVE SURPASSED CHAD!". The ultimate PUA game ending! You know why I don't? Because THERE IS NO CHAD.
Chad is a delusion. That epic man who can lay all women is a myth, just like the NBA star who never lost any game. Lebron James is amazing, easily among the best players in history. But even he can't win all games. You know why? Because some factors are not under his control. Good as he is, he can't win when the rest of his team drops the ball.
I worked hard and outperformed, but things can easily go another way. There's plenty of women much taller than my body, and my success with them is very limited. If I was stuck on a desert island with 5 tall women and 10 tall, good looking guys, then trying to seduce these women would probably be a waste of time better spent on other efforts.
Success is incidental, hard work is not.
More generally, there's some things you control, and some things you don't. Success with women is not really under your control. Anyone who claims otherwise is fooling themselves. The mythical Chad who always succeeds does not succeed. I've peeked behind the curtain and fucked his girlfriend. She was bored and horny and tired of his cheating, so she let me game and fuck her.
Success with women, a female partner who worships the ground under your feet, female loyalty - these are all incidentals. Put me in a group of women all 5'3" or shorter and I'll bang tons of them. Put me in a group with 5'10" women and a whole lot of 6'5" guys, and I'd have to work my ass off to seduce any of them, likely failing almost every time. (Before y'all pick me apart in the comments - save your breath, this is a simplification.)
Ecclesiastes said it best:
I returned and saw under the sun that—
The race is not to the swift,
Nor the battle to the strong,
Nor bread to the wise,
Nor riches to men of understanding,
Nor favor to men of skill;
But time and chance happen to them all.
Do not judge your fellow men for their success or failure with women. That success depends on many external factors, and most of all on women, who have their own reasons to fuck this or that man. The irresistibly masculine alpha man is a fun little myth. If the current SJW trends continue, it's totally possible that women will eventually turn down any guy who isn't a feminist, and then what will you do?
Judge men by their effort, not their result.
Finally, it's totally possible for a perfectly good man to reach the rational conclusion that getting laid has become more trouble than it's worth. Let's not kid ourselves, all of us will reach that stage, unless we die before. What are you going to do in your 70s, chase after 20 year olds? Fuck unattractive 50 year old women just to tell yourself you're still "fucking women", "winning the game", and therefore a "worthwhile man"?
What should we call those whose sense of worth depends on others and external factors, rather than their own self? I call them weak, dependent, indeed: feminine :>
