Bill Burr: Epidemic of Gold Digging Whores. Awesome video about women getting outrageous divorce settlements.

[–]Endorsed ContributorrebuildingMyself 188 points189 points  (26 children)

Wow, and he's actually done something useful for the world, unlike her.

[–]Endorsed Contributorgekkozorz 140 points141 points  (25 children)

Reminds me of Bill Burr's redpill-as-fuck rant about great men getting divorce raped by gold digging whores. Link here.

So Ahnold gets ripped as fuck, comes to America, learns the language, becomes a trainer, becomes an actor, then becomes a goddamn Governor. You can't top achievements like these.

And what did his ex-wife do? Fucking got cheated on, so she gets half his bank. How the fuck does that make any goddamn sense?

[–]Beaver1279 10 points11 points  (0 children)

It only makes sense in that the contract you sign when you get married states just that. No one is stopping any of these men from having prenuptial agreements. I commend Bill Burr for making this an issue. Most people don't realize what they are doing when they sign the dotted line.

"I'm afraid to get married. Why wouldn’t a man be afraid to get married at this point? You know, look at Kobe; look at the shit he is going through right now. All right, the guy is getting a divorce. His wife is going to get $70 million bucks, never hit a lay up in her life."

[–]TRP VanguardWhisper 831 points832 points  (177 children)

Don't.

Get.

Married.

[–]frankie_q 56 points57 points  (132 children)

Unless there are children involved. Unmarried men have even fewer rights to their kids, and will have to pay child support whatever happens.

Alimony seems to be on its way out, and a prenup might soften the blow of divorce settlements.

If there are no children involved, and the dude's had a vasectomy, then definitely, don't get married.

[–]TRP VanguardWhisper 145 points146 points  (130 children)

Don't.

Have.

Children.

[–][deleted] 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Yes. The only solution to solve men getting screwed over with divorce is to live solemn, empty life with no family and to survive off a flow of young, loose women with issues until you're an old lonely man. Maybe the better solution is to find a spouse/significant other that is stable and trustworthy instead of just marrying the hottest chick that will say yes. Also, if divorce happens, hire the best/seediest lawyer you can find.

[–]elevul 18 points19 points  (39 children)

Vasectomy is a man's best friend.

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

They don't even have to be your children for you to be forced to support them. You just need to be seen as a "father figure"

You go ahead.

But be aware that you are not a player in the game of evolution. You are only one of the pieces. So if you want to bust your ass so that a bunch of alleles can "win" a game they're not sentient enough to know they're playing, then knock yourself out. But you aren't going to win anything for it.

[–][deleted] 25 points26 points  (17 children)

This. Ultimate MGTOW. Whisper nailed it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gene-centered_view_of_evolution

Small excerpt from the article:

Dawkins argues that it is a mistake to assume that an ecosystem or a species as a whole exists for a purpose. He writes that it is incorrect to suppose that individual organisms lead a meaningful life either; in nature, only genes have a utility function – to perpetuate their own existence with indifference to great sufferings inflicted upon the organisms they build, exploit and discard.

Here I'll break it down some more. It's a bit subtle but...

Does this sound familiar?:

  • If you don't have kids (someday), you are a loser at life

  • You should "man up" and marry

  • If you have kids out of wedlock, you are trashy

Those beliefs are on the beta end of the spectrum, maybe not necessarily blue pill though. At least it's a half-step above a white knighting circlejerk. You know, a bunch white knight betas circling the pedestal of pussy all bent down on one knee pledging their fielty to their princess, being at her every beck and call offering their jacket when she is cold or throwing their jacket into the gutter so she doesn't dirty her shoes.

What do the white knights have in common? The view that you should act against your self interest time and again to help out women. That you should go out of your way to look out for them. That their princesses find this self-effacing behavior attractive. I think this is a fair summary of the blue pill.

Once again:

in nature, only genes have a utility function – to perpetuate their own existence with indifference to great sufferings inflicted upon the organisms they build, exploit and discard.

I think Whisper was on to something deep when he said

So if you want to bust your ass so that a bunch of alleles can "win" a game they're not sentient enough to know they're playing, then knock yourself out.

Food for thought: How many people out there are not sentient that their genes will play their minds and emotions like a video game if unchecked? That from your genes' point of view, you are the organism - to be built, exploited, and discarded. It's not just the woman in the red dress you have to be careful to not let manipulate you, it's also the code that makes up every cell in your body. Welcome to the Matrix motherfuckers! haha!

[–]madstatistician 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Yes... Good goy... don't pass on your white man genes... don't leave a legacy... all is going according to plan

Sorry I'll see my way back to /pol/

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

This is the crux of it. For some of us there is a bigger picture than having sex.

[–]madstatistician 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It's like these guys don't even read the great books for men.

[–]triceratraps 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If you dont pass on your genes what do you leave behind, everything else is transient. What better way to establish your legacy than to have resources and have kids with a good women so your children can use those resources and climb the social ladders of the world. You are born into the social category you are and the opportunities presented to you because somewhere along your history one of your ancestors either fucked up or succeeded. Isnt sacrifice the most important quality of a leader? Isnt the goal of this subreddit to be a better man?

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (4 children)

If The Red Pill is about accepting harsh realities, then you simply have to accept #1.

Your purpose as a biological entity is not to sit around, drink beer and blow your load into a rubber. It's to fuck women and have children. Your purpose in life is to see to it that your genetic material is included in that of the next generation.

So yeah, if you never breed, you do lose at life. Because that's the entire purpose of life. There is no getting around that.

Edit: to add, indeed, Numbers 2 and 3 derive their entire authority from the undeniable nature of this fact by positing that only through marriage is the production of children properly achieved. this is the lie, and it is on that front that the lie can be destroyed. Because you can have kids easily without marrying a woman or even starting a traditional family.

But you will never defeat the primary instinct of every life-form that has ever graced this planet, and in all likelihood, any other. If you try to argue against #1, all you will do is discredit your arguments against #s 2 and 3. You may as well try to use your voice to tell a computer that its coding is wrong.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So yeah, if you never breed, you do lose at life. Because that's the entire purpose of life. There is no getting around that.

I don't buy that. I still say it depends on how you look at it. I see it as boiling down to a question of: is having a kid in your best self-interest? I wrote a detailed response to /u/redpillschool's comment, and in it I pointed out that the genetic difference between any two people is only about 0.1%. Having a kid for the sake of passing on your genetic material is misplaced vanity the way I look at it.

On the other hand, if you are doing it because you want to be a father and feel ready to provide a stable parental role for a kid (i.e. you are financially secure and the kid was not an accident with a random bar slut) - more power to you.

I'm going to come clean here: I have not had a vasectomy, and am not inclined to get one at this time. There is research being conducted into easily reversible vasectomy operations that work by plugging instead of snipping. I'd strongly consider getting that if it were available.

Why? Because if I am going to have a kid, I'm going to do everything in my power to have it on my terms and with a woman of my choosing. Too many men have knocked up a random slut they hardly know. And then what happens? The woman has 100% the final say in whether to have the baby or not. And often the man years later is unhappily divorced and/or paying child support with hardly any visitation. Fuck that noise, in light of that I'm perfectly content with blowing my load into a rubber, thank you very much!

[–]Alphadestrious 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes 100% true. From a biological perspective we are on this planet to mate and pass on our genes to the next generation. However, from a career perspective or other perspectives it is otherwise. Also, I feel bad for Cesar but in life we all get shat on in some way to varying degrees. What matters then is how you rise up like a fucking soldier and plow through.

[–]pizzabegetspizza 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All other things being equal, I think it's the case that marriage produces stronger children.

[–]DanReggins 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Excellent! Plus, what would you rather do?

Teach, build, contribute, leave some sort of production built by (or partially) by you? Or leave a kid who might be retarded or a felon?

[–]PlanB_pedofile 12 points13 points  (0 children)

As a man who's sterile (nature's vasectomy) I've come at peace knowing I won't be passing my genetic lineage on. As such, I made plans to influence the lives of other people and spread my seed in other ways.

My father had lots of kids. But his contribution to those around him was his legacy. He had over 300 people attend his funeral. People came out of state to attend. Politicians, Co workers, volunteer groups, fellow military vets. He made such an impression on them that it resonated.

I've seen blokes who only had 12 people at their funeral and all family only.

Shows that legacy is more than the fruit of your loins, but fruit of your labor.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Teach a million students. Build a hundred buildings -- hell, build an empire. You will never have 1/100th the influence on the course of events that Genghis Khan had.

If your child is a felon, so what? Admittedly, the retard thing matters, but who gives a shit if he's a felon? Do you think that there were no rapists or murderers in Albert Einsteins evolutionary line?

Having children isn't only about having children. It's about having your children's children, and their children, and their children, and their children after that. It's about taking the first step on a path that has the potential to influence not only the course of human evolution, but of every species that derives from us and from our descendants.

[–]Modredpillschool 0 points1 point  (4 children)

From a philosophical standpoint, it's interesting to notice these facts.. but from a practical standpoint, what is one to do when your own happiness is contingent on satisfying the urges and needs given to you by your genes?

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

what is one to do when your own happiness is contingent on satisfying the urges and needs given to you by your genes?

Ah, but is it?

Think of it this way: What do you tell a guy who complains that he can't get women and just keeps getting friend-zoned? You tell him stuff along the lines of he needs to put himself first and not let women walk all over him. His problem is he is stuck in a frame of "If she's not happy, I'm not happy".

Kind of like a husband in a beta frame who says "Happy wife, happy life". Perhaps, but if that woman loses attraction to her husband, cheats, takes him to divorce court extracting alimony and child support.. well I'll bet that saying rings hollow to him - she's happy and he's miserable.

Here's the thing, the human genome is pretty much exactly the same for everyone. Between any two humans, the amount of genetic variation—biochemical individuality—is about 0.1%. Your code is virtually identical to everyone else's. Yet the percentage of people who are fine with living a life without children is certainly higher than 0.1%.

Do a majority of people feel like it is their biological imperative to have children? Sure. Do a majority of guys (read: betas) feel like they need to reply quickly when a woman sends a text message, or do things like act super-nice to them all the time? I think so too. At least naturally, until the programming is seen for what it is and overcome.

The genetic code exists because it makes copies of itself. That is what it does, the reason it exists. It is not intelligent, and it doesn't substantially change except over very long periods of time. It doesn't even have a goal - It exists because it exists, and keeps on existing because some mutations are ever so slightly better adapted to the environment.

Consider the "Actual Advice Mallard" meme. Does AAM care if you follow his advice? No, it's just a silly picture of a duck (information in a computer file). AAM is one of countless memes. Incidentally Dawkins coined the term "meme" in the very same work (The Selfish Gene that I referred to in my previous post). The difference between AAM and our genome is that AAM images have more than 0.1% variation between any two. Oh, and Actual Advice Mallard isn't responsible for spawning humans either.

in nature, only genes have a utility function - to perpetuate their own existence with indifference to great sufferings inflicted upon the organisms they build, exploit and discard

The language of this sentence is somewhat loaded but it helps illustrate the point. The key word here is "indifference". "Exploit" implies malice, but it isn't deliberate. "Use" doesn't sound much better, but that's basically what the human genome does - use all of us in order for it to exist. Actual Advice Mallard does a similar thing - if there were no humans, there would be no Actual Advice Mallard.

I'll leave off here with a fun fact: What sets men apart from women genetically speaking? We have a piece of code that they lack - the Y chromosome. They have two X chromosomes whereas we have one X and one Y chromosome. Perhaps the Adam and Eve story in the Bible is a metaphor - you can make a woman out of a man, but you can't make a man out of a woman. But I digress.

[–]Modredpillschool 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'll just go ahead and short circuit this one, yes, the urge to reproduce is biologically programmed to make you want to do it (using positive and negative feedback). If it weren't, we wouldn't likely exist.

[–]redditaccountpls -1 points0 points  (0 children)

You missed a part.

Cells (our bodies cells) have an incredibly intense symbiotic relationship with our genetic code, so comparing our genome to the AAM is completely, totally wrong. The genome, in simple terms, may only exist to make copies of itself, but that code would be completely useless without the cells that replicate it and more importantly, translate it. You can't discuss such an issue solely using genetics without factoring in it's very important, ever present neighbour: cell biology. If you're going to talk about reproductive sciences, you're not doing yourself any favours by just talking about the genome, because a huge player in reproduction and the biological imperative to reproduce is cell biology. The genome may not have an end goal, but the cells do, and that end goal is to reproduce.

[–]2comment 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sorry, I don't buy this but it's an interesting train of thought. The reason I can't accept it is that it's going into "I'm a special snowflake" territory.

You see, you can try to unsuccessfully try to seperate yourself from you alleles/genes, but you are an expression of them. The best way to think of this is that you're a link cursing at the chain. But the chain is not some seperate individual on it's own trying to manipulate you, simply your line of ancestors leading down to you. The alleles are not in some grand conspiracy to force you to do anything, they're just a survival and breeding instinct within you that without which in your ancestors, you wouldn't be around to complain.

If you had anybody else's genetics, you wouldn't be yourself, from body to mind, leading up to the point where if you had nonhuman genes, you couldn't even process or form these thoughts.

Get some sperm cryogenically frozen first, though. Never hurts to keep options open.

[–]hermit087 -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

Its only about $500 a year to keep sperm frozen, so for high income men it should be a no brainer to keep some sperm frozen, then get clipped. Its the best of both worlds.

[–]wiking85 3 points4 points  (0 children)

They're only viable for about a year after freezing, so its not a panacea.

[–]Stopher 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I really wouldn't want to get clipped. Don't you gain weight? Become Less masculine?

[–]hermit087 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nope, it only applies to the actual sperm. Testosterone, sex drive, semen, and pretty much everything else remains the same. You would have to actually cut your balls off to have those kinds of issues.

[–]JustThrewUp 14 points15 points  (1 child)

[–]Hurp4Derp4 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Hopefully that vasigel (or whatever its called) is released soon. Kinda like vasectomy but its only a gel that can be removed with some clensing.

[–]wiking85 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Vasectomy reversal success rates go down every year after you get the vasectomy. Within 5-10 years its pretty much irreverseable depending on the person.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Good to know. I'm heading for a consultation to get a vasectomy myself, and I'm honestly OK with that fact.

Do you know any other not - on - the - brochure information?

[–]wiking85 0 points1 point  (1 child)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasectomy#Vasectomy_reversal Not sure if its not on the brochure, but the wikipedia entry is pretty thorough on the issues around it. Don't do it lightly, its pretty permanent; even if you get it reversed the sperm is damaged by it, so can produce damaged children as a result.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I never intended to have it reversed, but I'm 20 and we all change.

Do you have any other tidbits of knowledge on the subject or related subjects? Perhaps anything I should be aware of going into a consultation or perhaps any side effects

Thanks for the information thus far.

[–]equeco 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I see having children as the only concrete attempt to immortality. Life's a continuum, your genes form a new human, he's part you in a very concrete way, and he may live and reproduce too. It only takes finding a nice, intelligent woman to reproduce with. That shouldn't be so hard for a healthy, accomplished man.

[–]FascistComicBookHero 10 points11 points  (43 children)

It's frustrating to see that this is the majority opinion amongst these parts, because not having children is the evolutionary equivalent of rolling over and dying a quiet death in the ditch somewhere. This no-marriage-no-kids thing is a nihilistic abdication of responsiblity. It stinks of laziness and cowardice. We should be aiming to out-compete, out fight and out-smart the douchebags - and the disgusting feminist social expermient that created them - by procreating and raising future generations in our image. To do otherwise is the path of surrender and extinction. Is scorched earth really our only policy in relation to Western society?

I wonder how long it will take people to finally understand that Red Pill isn't about beating anyone at anything. It's about being a better person for you, not anyone else. You want to have kids? Great, go do that. You want to be a rich, powerful CEO? Awesome. Do it. But do it for you, not for a chick, not for your family, not for "future generations." Do it for you.

[–]batfish55 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I wonder how long it will take people to finally understand that all of life is inherently about beating someone at something: breeding.

This isn't some metaphysical question. You are a vehicle for the propagation of genetic material. That is your purpose. I don't give any shits how much you grate against that, that's how the world works. It can't be disagreed with -- I'm not the one saying this.

Nothing you do will ever be for you. Everything you do will be the result of instincts. Are you honestly so stupid as to think that only women have hamsters? Sure, society enables them to give theirs a much better workout than it does men, but every human brain is a rationalization generator. You have no more idea why you really do the things you do than anyone else does.

Not one thing you do is done for any other reason than that your instincts are telling you to do it. That's why humans can create a sub simultaneously dedicated to both declaring how having children is fucking stupid... and how to fuck lots of chicks.

[–]CurveballSI -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Are you honestly so stupid as to think that only women have hamsters?

No, but keep the insults coming. They really help prove your point.

Not one thing you do is done for any other reason than that your instincts are telling you to do it.

This sounds like a really twisted and convoluted version of fate. If you seriously think the human species acts on instinct and instinct alone, I've god bad news for you.

Instinct: an inborn pattern of activity or tendency to action common to a given biological species.

The species part is the important part. If working out was instinctual, that means that every human would work out/exercise. Not true.

If eating healthy was instinctual, that would mean every human does it. Not true.

I wonder how long it will take people to finally understand that all of life is inherently about beating someone at something: breeding.

Hey, if your ultimate goal in life is to have children, then congratulations. I can't imagine how you set expectations of yourself any lower than that.

[–]TRP VanguardWhisper -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I wonder how long it will take people to finally understand that all of life is inherently about beating someone at something: breeding.

No one planned life. No one designed it. It wasn't put here for a purpose. It's here by accident. Life has no meaning, no purpose, and no goal. Life's tendency to breed and reproduce itself is an emergent property, not goal-oriented behaviour.

Life. Has. No. Purpose.

That means your purpose is whatever you decide it is. Same for me.

You wanna breed, fine. But the only thing that gets you, personally, is the feeling of knowing that your kids will outlast you, and the experience of being around your kids. After you're dead, and I'm dead, we'll still both be dead, and we won't experience anything.

So feeling gives you satisfaction, whatever. But you're only chasing a feeling. Not some ultimate meaning of life.

Don't confuse evolution's "goals" (which aren't actually goals at all) with yours. They don't align unless you want them to.

[–]real-boethius 41 points42 points  (1 child)

You're right. We should man up.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Man up has to do with society. You can rebel against society. You can tell other men to go fuck themselves. I do that all of the time. I would never be so foolish as to think that I could do that to the natural world, because the natural world would fucking kill me.

Natural selection will make you it's bitch one way or the other. Either you'll give in to instinct and have a kid willingly, the instincts that actually matter will take over and you'll have that kid by accident, or you'll fail to breed altogether and be removed from the gene pool.

But like I said, you will be nature's bitch. There is no way around that.

Can't abdicate a responsibility I never had to begin with.

Go on and keep trying to shame me into being a tool. I do so love a good laugh.

Is scorched earth really our only policy in relation to Western society?

Ay-firmative. Men taking responsibility for society without thought of reward was what got us into this mess.

Trying to sell your point of view, trying to win people's hearts and minds... you can't win that game. You've forgotten The Fundamental Premise.

So you can go on pouring your time, love, care, and tax money into western civilization. And feminist-enlightened women will drink it right up, slurp, gone, like a cup of water poured into the Rub' al Khali. And then they'll say "where's the rest?".

Because when you give someone something unearned, they resent you for it. People want to believe they deserve their good fortune. So they make up stories about how it's theirs by right. They will convince themselves that they are entitled to everything you have given them, and demand more.

And everyone will believe their rationalizations about what they are entitled to, because of The Fundamental Premise.

So you can't win by fighting. The way you win is to go on strike.

[–]triceratraps 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I dont understand what you mean by you are not a player in the game of evolution you are a piece. Can you please explain?

[–]TRP VanguardWhisper 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Sure.

Evolution is a game played by genes. The win condition of this game is to make lots of copies of themselves.

The way they play this game is to influence the behaviour of organisms in various ways. Genes try (well, they don't "try" anything, but we all understand that metaphor) to make their hosts do things that will make more copies of the gene. Win conditions benefit the gene, not necessarily the host.

Because it is genes who win or lose, and genes who make the moves, genes are the players. Because we are the ones who are moved, and the wins and losses don't always help or harm us (respectively), we are analogous to the pieces.

Just as a pawn can be sacrificed to help one side win, your genes can screw you to make you have more offspring. Or to make you do something that benefits people with genetics like yours (relatives, etc).

The pawn's goal is stay on the board and not die by the end of the game. Maybe to reach the end and get promoted. But, like good chessplayers, successful genes will happily sacrifice a pawn, knight, or rook to win the game.

People who think that having more descendents is "winning" are people who fail to recognize that their instincts can diverge from those of their genes. They are in danger of being sacrificed in a gambit to improve their player's position.

[–]triceratraps 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What makes you think there is a distinction between your genes and your self? Arent we just products of our genes and our environment?

[–]TRP Vanguardnicethingyoucanthave -1 points0 points  (5 children)

The Fundamental Premise

It's a very compelling idea that differing parental investment is the underlying basis for a lot of our views and customs. I was about to ask you to post a link to that in PPD and see how they respond - but then I remembered that I can predict their responses quite easily. "Humans are not animals! We're way more complicated than that!"

Basically, the dismiss uncomfortable truths with a wave of the hand.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (4 children)

I would find this argument easier to accept if it wasn't being made by two people very clearly trying to ignore the uncomfortable biological truth as to what the purpose of life actually is.

Sure, but it is fun to argue with people who who so laughably contradict their own supposed beliefs.

You all claim to accept every uncomfortable truth... but this one you spit back out because you don't the way it tastes. I don't particularly like it, either, but that doesn't mean that it's not the truth.

No, it is a rational decision. It is self-interest over social interest.

Frankly, I know quite well that society will collapse because many men are looking after themselves first now. It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside to think of the leftoids being destroyed by their own stupidity.

[–]strangestdude 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's frustrating to see that this is the majority opinion amongst these parts, because not having children is the evolutionary equivalent of rolling over and dying a quiet death in the ditch somewhere. This no-marriage-no-kids thing is a nihilistic abdication of responsiblity.

I don't let the theory of evolution dictate my ethics.

Evolution explains speciation, but I don't use it as a model on which to base my life.

[–]Hatorader 5 points6 points  (10 children)

Fight what exactly? Who can run towards the cliff faster? Not having kids doesn't just help you, it helps the world. Humans = wasted resources, pollution, wars, disease, more scumbag humans, more extinct species, less natural habitat and a general degradation of the world in general. Human society is disgusting. Debauchery, murder, theft, corruption and let's not forget that it's all meaningless too, that's a pretty big one.

[–]boydeer -2 points-1 points  (5 children)

Humans = wasted resources

what are the resources properly used on?

pollution

like cats cause pollution

wars

like ants fighting

disease

that's called life

more extinct species

more life

less natural habitat

unnatural habitat doesn't exist

general degradation of the world in general

this is an illusion all generations of us experience. we've been on the verge of destruction for thousands of years, which probably has something to do with how our consciousness is shaped by our single serving life cycle.

[–]boydeer 0 points1 point  (2 children)

So would you call an ant hill unnatural habitat? The only thing you can weigh the cost of existing against is the experience of existing, so calling the byproduct of our existence pollution doesn't make more sense than calling the byproduct of the existence of rats pollution. And if life is pollution, what is the unit of value against which you are evaluating things?

Edit: and I acknowledge that pollution exists relative to us. People can pollute less or more. But the above statements ignore the system by which pollution is defined.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

'Natural habitat' refers to the habitat a species has adapted to exist in. It is not a comment on the 'naturalness' of the habitat itself.

A city can be a natural habitat if the species in question has become adapted to live there.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

  1. Us, but not all of them right now on the humans currently alive.

  2. All living things cause pollution, that doesn't mean that there aren't truly vast differences in the proportions of it.

  3. Yes. Ants fight wars for the same reasons people do: resources. See part 1. That war is natural and sometimes necessary doesn't mean that we shouldn't seek to lessen it when possible.

  4. You're an idiot. I don't even know what to say to someone who appears to believe that medicine shouldn't exist.

  5. Mostly accurate, though when humans cause extinction, we should do so more carefully. We can usually get away with kill anything predatory that represents a danger to us because we are sport-hunters and with the remove of an apex predatory, the largest challenge is usually keeping the population of ungulates down. However, if we were to make, say, deer extinct, we would be royally fucked. Other species can (and have) fucked themselves over by making the species' they depend on extinct, but I don't really care about that.

  6. Yes. The only way you can argue against this is to adopt a completely different definition of 'natural habitat' than the overwhelming majority of the human race.

  7. While you're not entirely correct (we are not, in any knowable way, on the verge of extinction, nor have we been at any time in the last several thousand years, though humankind has undergone several population bottlenecks indicative of extinction-level events), there is some truth to your last statement.

However, it should be noted that you make that last statement even in the face of an actual disaster, given your previous statements. This is the flaw in the 'boy who called wolf'. Because eventually a wolf will show up, regardless of any other behavior. Humanity will go extinct.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's not laziness or cowardice, it's just idiocy.

And it won't really matter. If our instincts actually depended on us wanting the end result, those instincts would be easily defeated by our intellect. But our instincts just nudge us along in subtle ways that never allow us any consideration as to where those nudges will take us.

Watch these men. They will claim not to have Want children. Then they will brag endlessly about the women they screw, as if the two are completely independent of each other. But condoms suck as birth control. Vasectomies at times fail, and many of the men who suggest them will never even get them themselves.

But if fear was actually enough to prevent breeding, the cub would never challenge the aging pack leader. The old buck wouldn't have to fight for breeding rights with young bucks. The few who are so instinctually flawed as to allow fear to get in the way... well, they were never meant to breed in the first place. That's just natural selection taking it's course.

[–]ADH-Kydex 7 points8 points  (37 children)

Kids are awesome. I just taught my little guy how to shop vac and got to watch him clean off a work bench. Then I let him drill a few holes on the drill press, that's always fun. He's a great kid and its really fun watching him grow up, no matter what happens in the future I do not regret having kids.

So, being married is fine. Having kids is pretty cool.

But so what? Marriage can go well. A lot ofd shit can happen. I just play the odds, and the odds say that marriage is a shitty bet. It isn't just divorce, but deadbedrooms, and the woman's ability to hold the threat of divorce of false domestic violence accusations against you.

I am simply unwilling to put myself in a relationship with such a drastic imbalance of power. Or, to put it more honestly, such a drastic imbalance of power that isn't in my favor.

Thanks for this post. I don't see what the point of any of this is, if I don't have a wonderful loving partner and kids. That's the entire point of male and female humans. I want to find a great partner (I found one), marry her, and have children. if women are all horrible, women only want to take from you and divorce you, and kids are awful, what is the FUCKING point?! Why do we talk about women at all? Is it just about fucking? Is TRP life only about fucking any women you find attractive, and never sharing emotions with her or ever wanting to raise your own child? If so, I have completely misunderstood the whole purpose.

You sound like you have a wonderful life. There are many incredible women and amazing marriages, where both the man and women are in love and raise their children. There are marriages where men abuse and hit, and rape, women. There are marriages where women scheme to steal money from a divorce. But there are ones that work out great.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Absolutely. Reminds me of the Ron Paul internet 17-22 year old libertarians of the early 2000s. You said it perfectly. Manufactured enemies. They are quick to point out correct biological impulses, but don't see why that relates to marriage and children. Those are the reasons we want sex, and provides fulfillment in life. Otherwise we should all become asexual or gay.

I also hate this unicorn mentality. Everyone here ostensibly loves male competitom in sports to careers and wealth, but 'great' women are so rare we never talk about them and berate anyone who is happily on a relationship. Well fuck that. I worked hard to find a wonderful female partner who is my equal in many ways, but ultimately fulfills many female roles such as cooking and cleaning and soon child rearing; at the same time she has a beautiful moral compass and makes more money than me (a lot). Any man who has had a legitimately wonderful women knows they don't conspire to divorce or use you. That's sensationalist bordering on obsessive fears

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I wish this were true, but nature simply doesn't care if mommy and daddy stay together, or even love each other. We should care, because that gives our children the best possible chance to be successful human beings, but nature doesn't, because being a successful human being isn't the same thing as being a successful breeder.

Nature doesn't give a shit if you got sperm-jacked. Nature doesn't give a shit if a guy kidnaps some chick and chains her to his bed for nine months. Nature wants you to breed. The only judgement it makes on the tactics used is the level of their success.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sure. Nature doesn't care if you enjoy Bach either, nor does it care if you study and learn physics and math. We are in many ways slaves to nature, but there is also a complexity in humanity that is absent in other animals.

And nature actually does care about that, as human children are unable to survive without immense care for a large part of their life, so they have required a male/female to team together to raise them. The most success in successfully having a child comes from parents who raise the child together to protect/teach/feed that kid. Single mothers weren't capable of raising a child on their own in the past. And these kids would be less likely to mate against as a result.

You don't have to be married to have kids.

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (3 children)

1) Having children with a women is nearly as financially committing as getting married is. If you break up, there will be child support payments, and they are not based on what the child needs, they're based on your income. You're effectively married in terms of financial risk.

2) Children are best raised in a two-parent household. The idea of running around "spinning plates" while trying to raise 2-3 kids is ridiculous and is just a plain bad family environment.

3) Many places have common law marriage. In Canada, if you have children with a woman and live together, you're now under the same financial burdens of actually being married.

Reality is, if you want to have kids and give them a good home, you're going to have to face the same financial risk as getting married. It sucks, but if you want kids, that's our legal climate.

This furthers my point. Adding marriage does nothing to help this situation.

2) Children are best raised in a two-parent household. The idea of running around "spinning plates" while trying to raise 2-3 kids is ridiculous and is just a plain bad family environment.

You can still have a life long relationship / commitment with a partner without signing a legal document.

This is true. I wish more people would understand this.

Wrong. It's not the same financial risk as getting married. Yes the child support risk is the same, but the spousal support risk is less. Much much less.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is true. I wish more people would understand this.

Basic reality from where I'm from, if you want to have kids and live with the mother of your kids (good family environment) you are going to be married whether you want to or not. There is no "opt out" of that.

Worse is that you cannot live with a woman here for 2/3 years without becoming married by default. It's absurd at this point.

I think that women are going to be the ones that pull this system apart before MRAs do, largely because as they start to out-earn men (at the median level) they'll start to be on the losing end of these "divorces" and since they have nearly all the power when it comes to creating, financing and supporting lawmakers and these laws they'll easily pull them apart and we'll see a whole bunch of TRP/libertarian talking points coming out of their mouths about "unfairness" and "why should I have to pay for you?"

In the end, as long as men don't have an equal voice in the creation of these types of laws (and make no mistake, just because a male legislator is voting for the law does NOT mean men have a voice here) they'll always favor women. When women make less, no fault divorce + common law marriage. When women make more, re-formed divorce laws + end of common law marriage.

It is hilarious how many people clearly disagree with you, but can't quite, because they know how blue-pill it sounds when they do.

A man who leaves half-dozen pregnant woman behind him is more likely to be evolutionarily successful than a man who stays with one woman he impregnates a half-dozen times. The genetic variance secured through this action is simply more effective at spreading his genes than the resources he would invest in a marriage.

we need more marriages in the Western world

Who's this "we"?

I don't need to get married. I don't need other people to get married. I don't need you to get married.

Do you need me to get married? Does someone else?

If so, then the need for me to get married is that person's problem, not mine, and it will remain not my problem until whoever it is figures out how to incentivize marriage for me.

And telling me "you'll save Western civilization!" cuts no ice.

Because Western civilization hasn't shown me that it's worth saving, or that it's worth it to me to save it, or even that it wants to be saved. The West is a sinking ship, whose captains have shown all too willing to throw me and my fellow members of the penis owners' club over the side if it means they get to ride a little higher in the water for a while. And now you want me to bail until I go down with the ship?

No, thanks. It's the lifeboats for me, and if I can't get one, then it's party time on the topmost deck until the inevitable end.

Because you can't save civilization by working harder and sacrificing more. That's how we got into this mess in the first place... with men doing what was good for everyone, and women doing what was good for themselves. Women's ability to take, consume, devour, and use up finally outstripped men's ability to produce, build, fix, and invent, because women, no longer satisfied with consuming the product of men's roles, began to covet the roles themselves.

They wanted into our companies so they could play career. And, like a child who was no longer content to play race car driver with her little red wagon, they demanded daddy's car to play with. And we, insanely, gave it to them. Now daddy can't drive to work, the little girl can't get a job and replace his earnings because she's just a little girl and doesn't even want to drive to work for real, and no one eats.

You think you're gonna save civilization by working harder and raising more hard workers? Nah. Feminist-enlightened women and their leftoid ideological colleagues are just gonna take everything you build, and everything your children build and make it vanish with a giant slurping sound.

And then they're gonna say "Where's the rest?"

These people are incapable of moderating themselves. They do not understand scarcity, and they are not going to sit still for you to explain it to them. They do not realize or care that government money isn't free mana from heaven, and they don't know that the economy is an engine, not a cornucopia, and they don't care about the people down in the bilges doing the bailing.

You can never produce as fast as they can consume, because they demand not only what you produce, but the means of production. They don't just want the house you built for free. They want you to give them your saw and hammer and nails so they can play carpenter. And once you give them your saw and hammer and nails, they want another house.

The only way to get rid of these people is to starve them out. To give them nothing until they either perish or learn to produce. You have to give them as little as you can of what you produce, and keep as much as you can for yourself.

What's the point of TRP if not to help change this absurd feminazi/liberal brainwashing being DONE to the West?

Welcome to TRP. We are a subreddit about personal survival and sexual strategy in a culture increasingly lacking a positive identity for men.

A friend of mine recently pointed out that crusades consist of crusaders, while civilizations consist of civilians. YOu cannot save civilization by persuading everyone to join a crusade.

You denounce Western CULT-ure

I do not. Western culture contains some of the greatest things humanity has come up with, and it is just plain superior to others. Western society, however, the inheritor of that culture, is a different thing.

I've so far trained 2 dogs for obedience competitions, and not once have I and to be cruel to them.

There was a post here on TRP about how you're supposed to use more of a reward system with women instead of punishment. It's exactly what I do with dogs.

[–]Abiogeneralization 2 points3 points  (6 children)

I don't think his tactics are draconian, even as a human. But the point is that humans try to deal with dogs as they would humans. They get down on their level and use their words to communicate their wishes. What they need to do is to speak dog, which is being dominant (not aggressive or violent) and giving a light bite on the scruff of the neck. Humans would prefer not to be treated that way but for dogs anything else is abnormal and confusing.

The Golden Rule has limited value in dog training and in heterosexual relationships.

Very true. But humans have been domesticated for longer. We haven't changed as much as people would like to believe. That's why this sub exists.

Absolutely. However, in humans we haven't done artificial selective breeding. There was an Austrian guy in the 1940s that tried it, and the whole world went to war over it (yes, Hitler was from Austria, not Germany).

With dogs we've selected for the traits we want, and killed off the breed lines we didn't want.

Humans haven't changed much because we keep fucking each other across races and different geographical locations. It's the Genetic Drift principle. New genetic traits only emerge when the species is forced to do so. We've been living comfortably since we invented farming.

[–]Abiogeneralization 1 point2 points  (2 children)

in humans we haven't done artificial selective breeding

Oh we so have. I won't claim to be a dog training expert, but I am a biologist. The word "artificial" here only means that the breeding is controlled by humans. And humans have the weirdest breeding preferences. Whether or not we're actively aware of it, we've been selectively breeding ourselves for as long as we've been breeding.

We're not even just homo sapiens anymore; we're homo sapiens bred in captivity by humans. We have all the weird features of a domesticated species.

Well I guess... By then we sort of knew what we were doing and were total assholes about it.

I'm talking about the transition from the life of the nomadic ape to that of the human villager (the kind of people who first kept dogs). What is "nature" selecting for here? Ability to use tools, living in huts, cooking food, hyper-intelligence... These are not "normal" traits. If village-life traits are selected for in any other species we certainly call that "artificial selection." Why not humans? In reality there's hardly a distinction between artificial and natural selection; humans are a part of the environment other species have to adapt to. Now we know about genetics and such so the manipulation seems obvious. But those ancient humans were being selected for pretty "artificial" traits without doing it on purpose.

Excerpt from linked Wikipedia article about Dog behavior :


Dog behavior refers to the collection of behaviors by the domestic dog, Canis lupus familiaris, and is believed to be influenced by genetic, social, situational and environmental causes. The domestic dog is a subspecies of the grey wolf, and shares many of its behavioral characteristics.

You'd think someone like Cesar Millan would be able to implement his tactics on her.

So many great men have been screwed by marriage..

[–][deleted] 30 points31 points  (5 children)

I remember hearing him talk about his marriage with his wife (pre-divorce), and it was clear he was overly sensitive to her wants and perceptions. He kept going on about how she straightened him out and such.

[–]InternetFree 36 points37 points  (3 children)

Many men want marriage because they can finally have someone to tell them what to do. A person they can be vulnerable to. Men sometimes want to be and feel vulnerable and show that side of them. They can't do it with anyone but if aomeone swears her loyalty to you, you should be able to yake their word on it, right?

Wrong.

However, you would assume a person whose fucking job it is to be super dominant every single day at sometime also wants to be vulnerable and have at least one person that can dominate him. It was what cost him all this.

[–]Endorsed ContributorrebuildingMyself 15 points16 points  (2 children)

A lot of men don't know any other relationship other than mom and son. He expects warmth, protection, etc and thus acts vulnerable and weak in front of her.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

This reminds me of a conversation my wife was having with me about our 14 yro son today, she said he was defiant to her, but not really in a rebellious way. I explained to her that it was ok because he was just expressing the fact that he didn't want mom telling him what to do.

My awesome RPW wife understood, though she was sad to see her "baby" growing up. Mom's can be the worst for sons. We dads really need to be there and show them how to stand on their own.

My son knows from my telling him, and his experiencing how, harsh and cruel the world truly is. He will learn to be strong, and I'm not going to correct him for respectfully expressing his desires to his mother.

[–]drdewm 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The state Child Support Agency agency gets a federal kick back for the money they collect in child support so they take every bit that is legally enforceable. Imagine asking the IRS to take a little less than they are legally allowed to, won't happen. They take because they can.

[–][deleted] 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Damn man. I liked this guy a lot. Some of his show was hammed up nonsense as is the requirement to be on TV, but most of it was actually very true. I'm a big dog person, and a few years ago I got a quarter wolf-dog and Millan's ideas worked really well, and helped me avoid a lot of the problems people report having with half wolves or quarter wolves.

Basically, everywhere a guy is out there contributing something to humanity, there's someone receiving half of what he earns for doing jack shit. Well, three people. The government, the courts earning a % of the amount of alimony / CS paid, and the ex-wife who deserves to "maintain her standard of living". It's a great 'fuck you for helping the world'.

Stop supporting this bullshit societal institution. Marriage has one function - to help the state and women profit from the accomplishments of men. It helps the economy by giving women (spenders) access to men (savers) bank accounts. Yes this is a generalization that women are spenders and men are savers, but ask any top level marketing guy (5-10+ years in the industry). Women make anywhere from 70-85% of purchasing decisions. Marriage exists to give women access to the money they need to keep crappy corporations alive.

Marriage has nothing to do with love - it is merely another form of taxation. It's the largest wealth transferrence agent in the world. It's even worse than government taxation, and I say this as a pretty libertarian guy. Taxation reams men a lot harder than it does women, and it puts the majority of those tax dollars to bullshit meant to appease and court female voters. Yet it at least pretends to put that money towards the good of its citizens, thus enabling taxpayers to reap benefits in the end. Marriage just straight up rapes men for 60% by the time all the proceedings are done. That money, unlike the 30% of income you might pay to taxes, does not go towards society. It just goes to your ex. Which means, it goes to buying whatever companies market to her - a pink prius, some cutco knives, clothes, jewelry, an apartment way above her own means, etc. You have no way of making it even go to your kids.

Marriage is a tax on men. Luckily, it's easily avoidable. While we are lucky enough to live in a society where the "marriage tax" is easily avoidable, I recommend that all men avoid it like the plague. Pre-nups do not always help. Hiding money often does not work.

For married guys, read up on WTF to do if things go bad. You wouldn't go sailing without knowing what to do if bad weather hits. There's a lot of great resources on how to "win" (which in this case means get fucked hard, but not torn apart with a spiked dildo in courts). RP game can help a lot, but beyond that, if you're married, have a detailed escape plan. Learn the tricks of the top players in the game - wealthy women. No matter how happy your marriage is, don't be ignorant, get your knowledge up.

[–]trplurker123 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Marriage is a legal contract between two parties to join themselves together in a legal union. It was originally constructed as joining of two families. Now there's tons of legally privileges including: immigration, tax, end of life, health insurance, estate benefits that have been tacked onto that.

However, for most men (and now more women) if you get divorced and if you have kids, welcome back to your early bachelor(ette) lifestyle because that's what you'll be able to afford. You know without being young and having all the responsibilities of age tacked on top of the bachelor lifestyle.

I don't know that banning women is the right strategy, but rather I think a panel of Judges, like the supreme court, should decide every case. Having more than one judge automatically puts in a system of checks and balances.

[–]niceguy_gone_cad 1 point2 points  (0 children)

IMO there shouldn't be any female judge, or any woman in power over logical decisions.

That would improve the justice system A LOT.

It's not a random stranger. It's someone who shook the right hands to be elected to his or her post. Beyond that, it's someone handing out a cruel and unusual punishment, knowing what it will amount to, in terms of the man possibly taking his own life. Isn't that tantamount to murder? That's not just doing your job. That's sticking it to someone for no good reason.

Should the judge be charged with attempted murder, based on the fact that logically, a man will not work his ass off for nothing and will generally just off themselves instead?

Unlike the judge, the job of the lawyer is not to judge who is right and who is wrong. Its just to present the best case they can for whoever is paying them.

[–]jpflathead 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I won't get involved in whether anyone should be killed, but I have certainly experienced lawyers who knew better saying things in court, advocating for punishments and rewards that were completely unfounded by the facts.

It's one thing to say that everyone in criminal court deserves a vigorous defense but the daily courtroom antics in family law go way beyond a vigorous defense to advocacy of known lies, misrepresentations and uncalled for unjustifiable punishments. And downright extortion.

[–]redpilldude 19 points20 points  (8 children)

In divorce, division of assets and alimony is based on what is equitable for both spouses. Also, both spouses are entitled to enjoy the same quality of life after the divorce. So, it is very common for the primary wage earner to have to pay a lot of money.

[–]1FloranHunter 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Also, both spouses are entitled to enjoy the same quality of life after the divorce

This is virtually impossible unless they were living well within their means since shared costs are massive savings. So in practice the woman's quality of life is maintained while the man lives in a tiny apartment, possibly with a roommate.

[–]Mightyskunk 9 points10 points  (0 children)

But I was fucking her once a week before the divorce...

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Of course extra compensation will be given unspoken to the woman, due to how our society portrays them. You wouldn't punish the poor innocent WOMAN would you?

[–]worms_to_mooch_sex 0 points1 point  (4 children)

So what if you can prove their quality of life was only at x$? I.e. if you kept your assets separate? Then would huge splitting up of things like this be potentially avoided?

[–]redpilldude 7 points8 points  (3 children)

In almost all states, assets acquired by either partner during the marriage are considered "community property." So, keeping assets separate wouldn't work. Pre-nuptial agreements can help somewhat, but those only cover assets that were acquired before the marriage begin.

Worth talking to a lawyer about this. Setting up trusts or LLC's might be an option as well to protect your assets.

    It's not where you get married, it's where you get divorced. You can get married with the "best" laws in regards to divorce, but if he/she gets that divorce in California and California has jurisdiction on you, good luck.

    Maybe, if you're lucky you can get a pre-nup that requires that a divorce occur where you want it to be.

          thats definitely true, but still, like I said, you don't have to actually marry your lady...she may want to I suppose, so that one may be tough. However, there are plenty of unmarried people in the long run to give you company even if your friends do get hitched, find new ones...You see, without a wife (and kids), your free time is your own, with those two things, say good bye to friends and family. Or at least be prepared to see them a hell of a lot less. You better have picked the right woman then right? Also something difficult to do...

          Point I am making is that life is not so black and white in this regard. Getting married =/= no loneliness and not getting married =/= loneliness

          This isn't true.

          Prenups aren't something you want to fuck around with- both parties along with legal council need to be involved in the process, and even still it can't basically be used to sign away your financial security. More often than not Prenups get thrown out because they were poorly written because they were written by bad (hint: cheap legal fees can mean you're getting a bad lawyer!) lawyers and / or done improperly. Both parties need to consent to it having been given legal council by their own lawyer.

          ......and don't get married in California. Don't live in California. Don't think of California.

            Because English is a versatile langauge where words can have multiple meanings, and one sentence can have a wild number of intents.

            People might hate lawyers but we need that kind of beaurocracy or else either the state or the individual would walk all over us.

            I mean, can you imagine what, "hey, if things don't work out, you don't get to take everything I own?" would mean? They can't take 100% of your net worth. Ergo, they could take 99% of it.

            Yeah, these guys exaggerate. There was an AmA with a divorce lawyer a while back, and he said that in most cases it takes either poor execution or evidence of coercion by one party on the other to get it thrown out. He said the latter can usually be avoided by getting the prenup taken care of well in advance of the wedding. In any case, he said it was very rare.

                  Fuck that, murder suicide would be a better solution. If you're going to be dead anyways, might as well make sure the cunt gets what she deserves too.

                  Though totenglocke has an interesting idea, I think fleeing the country and changing identities would be the best solution.

                  Can't blame him.

                  Women are so oppressed, and all they want is to be treated equally.

                  I think the problem is not that he got married, but the unfair divorce laws. I am pretty sure in other countries women can't do that what they are allowed to do in USA. So the real solution would be to change the laws to be based on reality instead of feminist propaganda.

                  What a cunt. Seriously.

                  If you read his books, he talks about dropping his alpha male attitude towards and treating her like thw beautiful woman she is. This was before any of this happened.

                  TRP perfect example.

                  Looks like he didn't assert his dominance.

                  He attempted suicide in May. She was awarded all that stuff in June.

                  For someone who knows a lot about dogs, they know nothing about bitches.

                  Monthly spousal support of $23,000?! Holy shit. I bet that's after taxes too. What kind of scam are they running in these court systems? Nobody deserves a quarter million dollars annually for child support. What child could possibly need that much money to survive?!

                  [–]lawonga 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                  Given that he obviously doesn't give a shit about his life anymore, I'm surprised he didn't consider a hitman yet

                  ...then got a dog and fought depression? Way to go Dog Whisperer!

                  1.7 million a year because this relationship didn't work out. Jesus Christ!

                    Known as a pre-nuptial agreement. The contract may be invalidated for any number of reasons, variable by state, so is possibly unreliable.

                    A pre-nup is usually for protecting pre-marital assets. A grey area exists in off-shoring assets acquired during the marriage. It's an expensive and probably risky option. Research: community property laws.

                    What a dolt. Why not just relocate to Nicaragua and live like a god king for the rest of his life?

                    In May 2010, after his dog Daddy died in February and his wife filed for divorce in March, Millan attempted suicide.

                    My heart broke for the guy.

                    I was in a similar situation...

                    Lost my job July 2012, August 2012 wife asked for divorce.

                    Don't get married guys, you can have a LTR without having a legally binding contract!

                    My friend told me he plans to get engaged at the end of the year after I told him about the disadvantages of marriage.

                    He told me he trusts that the girl won't take him for all he's got and he trusts her.

                    I don't believe they'll even last through the engagement.

                    Don't

                    Get

                    Married.

                      Methinks the suicide attempt

                      Methinks you should not speak of that topic anymore.
