Rant/VentingBehold the mythical female compassion in action (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by [deleted]

My boss has this humblebrag story she recites every chance she gets. It goes something like this:

"Its a funny story. Growing up I always wanted to be a teacher. I got my degree and started working as an aid at [white trash district elementary school in the area]. Boy was I in for a surprise. Here I was this cute middle class white girl and now all of a sudden I'm working with all these kids from broken homes. One would say "look" and show me a huge bruise covering his arm. They all had to deal with so much abuse from their families. I would go home crying every day because I couldn't help them. I had to give it up."

Thats more or less her telling verbatim. Her palm stays glued to her chest throughout the entire narration in a pose that screams "I'm being SOOO sososo sincere right now, AS EVIDENCED BY THE WAY I'M CLUTCHING AT MY HEART."

The subtext shes trying to communicate with the story is obvious: "I'm TOO compassionate. My biggest is flaw is that I care about other people TOO much." Before the redpill I would have lapped it up unconsciously and probably walked away from the conversation with a heightened respect for her.

But when you examine her story through the lens of "listen to their actions, not to their words" the subtext falls apart. If you truly gave one shit about these children, why would you abandon a position where you could help them however slightly in favor of pursuing a completely different line of work where you won't be helping them at all? Wouldn't you spend the rest of your life lying awake at night wondering whether you could have done them at least some good?

It just goes to show what is perhaps THE fundamental difference between men and women. Women don't engage with reality, they engage with their emotional response to reality. A woman can't even fathom the difference between the two. They are incapable of comprehending a problem at its source, let alone confronting it. Instead they confront the involuntary emotions that source provokes inside of them. Its not about helping the kids, its only about helping her feels.

And that's the case for everything when it comes to women. You've never had a direct conversation with a woman, did you know? We'll figure out how to have direct conversations with dolphins before we invent a technology that lets us do it with women. Every thing you say to a woman gets translated into feels before she hears it. Its the feels shes responding to, not you.

That is probably the best description of the female mind I've ever heard.

[–]ChanThunderwang 109 points110 points  (13 children)

This is the reason why feminists don't care about Islam.

They don't live in an Islamic country. So the situation of women there is not real to them. However, if someone mentions it, this person is the asshole. Why? Because he caused the emotional response.

If you tell a woman that women get mass raped in Syria, you made them sad. So in their mindset, you are the one who did this.

You make them sad = You did the bad thing.

[–]ChairBorneMGTOW 43 points44 points  (5 children)

100% spot on. This is exactly the issue I get. Currently in a sharia-controlled middle eastern country for work, been doing this sort of shit since 2007 but the females in Canada tell me I'm prejudiced when I post on FB about ducked up current events here.

[–]ChanThunderwang 37 points38 points  (4 children)

females in Canada tell me I'm prejudiced

Yeah, this does two things for them: They protected women in the middle east, since now they do not hear about it anymore. Also, they fight racism.

It does not matter if they did not actually do this. They feel like they did it.

"I talked about sexism and racism. Now I feel better. Therefore, the issue is solved."

If we on the red pill say that women only want to talk about problems, but never solve them, we are only partly right. Thing is: For them, talking about something and solving it is the same. If they overcome initial emotions, they think the problem is actually solved. If they talk about something, they thing they actually did something.

She hears bad things about stuff in a middle eastern country? "You are just a bit racist." ...with this sentence she solved sexism in the middle east. It now does not bother her anymore. You are just racist. Therefore the issue is solved. Then you tell her that you are not racist. "Well, maybe not, but sometimes we have prejudice without even knowing." Now she feels better about race issues, therefore she also solved racism.

[–]Redasshole 3 points4 points  (1 child)

"I talked about sexism and racism. Now I feel better. Therefore, the issue is solved."

Fuck. That means to them the actual racism was not the issue but them feeling bad was?

How much of a fucking poor human being is that, not caring about something as serious as racism? You mean if half of the world population died tomorrow, they would not care about that but only about how they feel? And that if they managed to feel better, the actual fact than BILLIONS of people DIED would not matter at ALL?

That's disgusting. Please tell me I'm wrong.

[–]ChairBorneMGTOW 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sorry amigo, you are, most definitely, not wrong.

[–]totorox 2 points3 points  (0 children)

For them, talking about something and solving it is the same. If they overcome initial emotions, they think the problem is actually solved. If they talk about something, they thing they actually did something.

so that would explain their abysmal failure at doing and achieving stuff except popping out babies and controlling men who in turn DO all that has to be done.

[–]Zachar1a 8 points9 points  (1 child)

That is one of the good things I got out of PUA theory. If you invoke a negative emotion in a woman's mind, she will associate you with the negative emotion, and the context doesn't matter.

[–]ChanThunderwang 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Back in high school, our history teacher had two or three weeks left at the end of the year and asked the students about what we want to learn a bit more.

A girl suggested the history of Eastern Germany. Not that the suggestion was terrible. But her reasoning was something like: "Some had their families separated. You lived in the East. And your sister in the West. I wonder how this is like..."

Now the teacher asked us to give counter arguments about learning more of Eastern Germany. I said: "Eastern Germany is just one more socialistic dictatorship, and we learned enough about socialistic dictatorships already. And how it is to be separated from your sister is not relevant to world history."

Damn... that girl got angry. "You think having your family is not important!!! They got separated! Behind a wall!!!"

I was blue pill back then, but this girl was fat and I never was that desperate. I could not care less how angry she was. I made this face and said: "Okay, let's talk more about Eastern Germany in history class." ...she got red in her face. I had to force myself not to laugh.

Girls can get so emotional about stuff. And she probably also thought that talking about Eastern Germany would still help separated families even after the fact.

If you mention anything about outside countries they just hamster it. Something about solving problems here first or whatever makes them feel better about ignoring real problems real women face in the real world.

[–]ShazzMichaels 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It's literally a pillar of feminism and any other Marxist ideology. t's called critical theory and is crucial to Marxism. The major players of Marxism found their new vanguard for the "Marxist revolution." They we going to focus on the dispossessed. Feminism attacks western culture from its position of oppression against women. That oppression must be unique to western culture. Likewise African American studies would only criticize American slavery.

[–]Mr-Mojo-rising 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm a poli sci major who thought Marxism critical theory might be on to something. Can you direct me to some good critique against it?

[–]ubercoolhipsterguy 111 points112 points  (3 children)

Hey guys I know we've figured out the movements of the planets and our solar system about the galaxy to the 10th decimal place but I still just really feel like clutching a cubic zirconium necklace and saying a little prayer will get me that raise

Just spat out my tea, that was fucking brilliant.

[–]aazav 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Because she "feels better" by doing her stupid little wishy routine.

She wants to believe that she "is a good person and did the right thing and 'oh, look, I fit in but am better than the other women because ring'" because that's what makes her feel better and her entire motivation is simply to feel good about things, not to solve them, fix them or improve physical reality.

None of that touches her motivation.

My friends brother put it best: For men 2+2=4 because you take two of X and add two more of X you get 4, common logic. For women 2+2=4 because 'it feels right'....

[–]tigerjaws 20 points21 points  (8 children)

This sounds completely absurd but it is absolutely true. I'm a math major in college and to make some extra $$$ I tutor local high school kids. It's funny, these girls that struggle with math (whether it's geometry, algebra, calculus, trig) always say the same thing. After I explain to them the logic and the reasoning behind how to solve a problem they always look at me confused and say "But that doesn't feel right, I don't feel like that's the way I'm supposed to do it" -.-

[–]Senior Contributordr_warlock 12 points13 points  (1 child)

This is why there needs to be immense advertising programs, false victimhood narrative campaigns, and mandatory female quotas regarding women in stem subjects. They naturally dont prefer them. They naturally dont enter the fields on their own volition despite the fact they have equal rights on paper and more rights and priveledges in practice combined with male shaming and gender quotas. They dont want it.

[–]darkrood 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sound idea, no way in hell that the mass media would be on your side. WHY? Because women are the major targeting audience in most of the ads. Under the banner of "customer is always right", therefore women are always right.

Your suggestion is good, but it's asking Ad companies to shoot themselves in the foot for a small sub groups of audience. It's just not financially sound.

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Numbers don't care about how they feel. Get the numbers right when planning that bridge or it will fall down on them. They'll feel it then.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I'll make sure to relay this to all the female engineers and construction supervisors. When there are any.

[–]Logicaliber 11 points12 points  (2 children)

I don't know about you, but when I see that something is logical, it feels goddamn right. If something doesn't feel right, it's either because my intuition is telling me it's not logical, or I simply haven't understood it yet.

[–]michael9314 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Logic beats "feelings" any day. Worse when you realise there's a logical reason for feelings.

[–]007700 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The right feeling is associated with understanding a concept. If a logical statement does not "feel right" to a female, its just because they don't understand it. This shows that females also cannot distinguish between feelings and thoughts; you can change your thoughts, but you can't change your feelings. You can't change reality either. Feelings are reality. Doesn't matter if the thought does not conform...this is a very primitive worldview, its as if the women ceased to evolve at some point.

[–]ace_hole_ 2 points3 points  (1 child)

This reminds me of something Neil Degrass Tyson said, that people think the criteria for believing in something is whether or not it feels good, and there's just something so wrong and dangerous with that way of thinking.

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

Lol that's so fucking true

[–]1jb_trp 19 points20 points  (2 children)

I tried to do just about everything with my last girlfriend before TRP. But it didn't matter: "I don't feeeeeeeeel like you love me!"

In reality I should have been hitting the gym and keeping her in a state of soft dread.

[–]Doctorpepperpants 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I did the same thing before I knew about TRP. I tried everything except improving myself. Moving forward, I think that any future relationship needs to have soft dread 24/7, with shit and comfort tests being differentiated between and crushed immediately.

[–]Myrpl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's also funny how it's also describing the blue pill mindset.

[–]Scroph 37 points38 points  (0 children)

This is just toxic humble bragging. This whole speech can be summed up to "Here I was this cute middle class white girl" and still retain the same meaning and convey the same message.

If you truly gave one shit about these children, why would you abandon a position where you could help them however slightly in favor of pursuing a completely different line of work where you won't be helping them at all?

She should've done like that woman in Freedom Writers. But still, I think the fact that she left isn't wrong in itself, what's deplorable is that she makes up excuses to make herself look like a better person in the eyes of other people.

[–][deleted] 28 points29 points  (10 children)

Women don't engage with reality, they engage with their emotional response to reality. A woman can't even fathom the difference between the two.

True, but to a lesser extent, men do the same. If you practice meditation for a long time, then you may find yourself enjoying rain or being fascinated with having a headache.

Go read Meditations by Marcus Aurelius if you haven't already. Here's a relevant quote: "If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to your own estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.”

[–]Consilio_et_Animis 7 points8 points  (8 children)

What is more real is less true; and what is less real is more true.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (7 children)

I don't understand. Can you please explain what you mean?

[–]Consilio_et_Animis 21 points22 points  (2 children)

It's from the Vedas.

Houses, countries, people, flowers, gold — they are more real, but less true. They will decay, fall ill, die, disappear. One day, even the universe itself will revert to emptiness.

Love, beauty, truth, joy, bliss, the present moment — they are less real, but more true. They have no beginning, and so have no end. So they are forever present.

So not attaching yourself to "reality"; you live a life more true.

…and you end up enjoying the rain and being fascinated with having a headache. 😄

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Thanks, that's beautiful. It's also encouraging that the wise men from many different cultures more or less end up saying the same things.

[–]icecow 2 points3 points  (3 children)

That would make it less true.

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

So this is how my friends feel when they ask me somewhat advanced questions about spirituality and I answer in a way that's truthful yet useless to them. Interesting.

[–]icecow 1 point2 points  (1 child)

For the record, my response was to emphasize the subjective shakiness of Consillo's statement, not that there is something magical here that you are incapable of getting.

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

Don't worry, I enjoyed watching my ego squirm at your words.

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

Deplorable that she pissed away a job and a college education. If she was going to fold up like a lawn chair she shouldn't have wasted mommy and daddies money, scholarships, loan money, endowment money and any state subsidies.

A woman will think about sending a birthday card and not actually do it and still feel good for "doing" it.

      My current LTR did this once. Told her to get dressed and leave. Screamed at me as I closed the door. The next day, however, she apologised by giving me the best BJ I had ever had.

      [–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

      Mine had one where I ate her face like a zombie. I told her this clearly wasn't reality because I would start from the bottom up. Then I asked if she tasted good. Fuck the feels.

      [–]darkrood 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      My sister called me when I was in Canada, for a dream that my brother and I were killed in a fatal car crash. Sobbing and crying like she is talking to her dead brother IRL. (le sigh)

      I honestly didn't know how to shut her up about how sad our deaths mean to her. It went on....for a good hour.

      [–]Anderfail 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      My wife did that once and I started laughing at her, she stopped that real quick.

      [–]NPK5667 30 points31 points  (6 children)

      I had a female friend do this. She spent like 3 hours making a homemade card for her moms birthday. I found the card like a year later in her messy ass apartment. She wasnt even aware she hadnt sent it. The act of making the card satisfied her enough, she was too lazy after that to actually go to the post office to buy stamps to send it.

      [–][deleted] 25 points26 points  (2 children)

      That explains why marriage for them is their wedding day only. After that it doesn't count for them and it's a drag.

      [–][deleted] 25 points26 points  (0 children)

      My go-to phrase for that situation is "They want a wedding, not a marriage."

      [–]darkrood 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      That's not true, there is also the beautiful honeymoon in Dubai, The fancy home that you gonna put down payment on, the three children that you have to help put through colleges, and all the "I WOVE YOU" mother's day cards that she gonna receive.

      Just not the unhappy part though (ex: changing diapers, losing sleep, getting fat, unruly teens, teen pregnancies, job loss, relocation, etc)

      [–]Esminia 2 points3 points  (2 children)

      That's illogical, and may not represent the way women behave in general. Why would she "forget" an easy opportunity to get patted in the back and brag about being so kind by her mom ?

      Maybe she's just extremely messy and dumb. By that, I mean more than the usual.

      [–]NPK5667 5 points6 points  (1 child)

      She was, she did this with alot of things and it was borderline pathological. Definitely not saying all women are like this but ive met and been friends with several others who were exactly the same. They would do things half way, almost never finishing or fully committing, or just talk about doing things with no real intentions of actually doing them... Almost as if talking about it or expressing desire to do it was equal to the act itself.

      [–]MadeSomewhereElse 7 points8 points  (0 children)

      Telling someone about a goal releases the same feel goods as actually completing a goal. I read something or listened to a podcast that mentioned it. I found that surprising, because if I tell a bunch of people I am going to do something and then don't I look like a huge vinegar pouch.

      [–]11100011 11 points12 points  (1 child)

      Hence the saying, "It's the thought that counts"

      [–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (0 children)

      I'm gonna use that one next time I see a homeless woman.

      I'll think about giving her a dollar, then I'll smile at her and say "it's the thought that counts" as I stuff my dollar back in my pocket.

      Then I can expense that dollar to charity during my taxes and feel good about it.

      [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      Or worse, buy the card, and then never send it.

        [–]Code_Bordeauxx 44 points45 points  (12 children)

        Women can only have compassion for people they respect. And even then this person better keeps his/her act together or the woman's respect fades quickly. Other than that they only pity the weak. People distance themselves from those they pity.

          Just one thing, being able to provide may improve the chances of her staying around (a little longer). However make no mistake, this does not in any way mean she respects that man

          [–]icecow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          That's not what I said. I said women can only have 'compassion' for people that have resources.

          [–]RedPistola 0 points1 point  (4 children)

          I believe it's the opposite. The hierarchy of love is Man > Woman > Children > Pets. Inversely, the hierarchy of Respect is Pets > Children > Women > Men. Respect flows up. Love/Compassion trickles down.

          [–]Code_Bordeauxx 0 points1 point  (2 children)

          It's not the opposite, you just found one exception to the rule. The only people a woman can feel compassion for without respect are her very own children.

          [–]RedPistola 0 points1 point  (1 child)

          That's not the only exception. Women aren't empathetic towards men, but they do respect them.

          A woman can't even fathom the difference between the two. They are incapable of comprehending a problem at its source, let alone confronting it ... We'll figure out how to have direct conversations with dolphins before we invent a technology that lets us do it with women.

          Actually the rosetta stone was found by /u/Whisper/ (I'm basically a Whisper apostle). If you haven't read it read whisper's post on female solipsism. An excerpt:

          A woman who says you should do X or Y, therefore, isn't talking crazy talk. Just self-centered narcissism talk. She's giving you good information... IF you insert words like "I want it to look/feel like" or "I want people to think" in front of every statement.

          Your story is a great example of the theory in action from the other perspective. Most women are incapable of understanding that there are other views. Just like how you need to add "I want it to look/feel like" before what she says, she doesn't understand that there is a difference between action and words, that explaining how compassionate she is is no substitute for actually being compassionate.

          [–]1Kolbath 19 points20 points  (1 child)

          I read this earlier this morning, digested it while teaching my noon class and while working out, and I keep coming back to the same connection.

          Multiple studies have demonstrated convincingly that liberals are generous only with other people's money. They have no problem empowering a government to steal from the hardworking in order to 'generously' give to social programs, but they do fuck all when asked to donate from their own wallets.

          It's also no secret that one of the most massive leftist (liberal) voting blocks is comprised of women. To put this another way: women use the power of government to steal from the men who actually produce. They then sprinkle this stolen wealth among the "unfortunate" and immediately file medical claims for injured shoulders they get patting themselves on the back for the "good work" they did. You'll note that at no point did they reach for their own wallet, donate their own time, or otherwise contribute to the lessening of humanity's pain and suffering.

          Prior to the 2008 election I had a brief online argument with one of Hillary's supporters who called me "greedy" and "selfish". When I pointed out that I received the Military Outstanding Volunteerism Award twice for donating more than two thousand hours of my personal time to local charities such as Habitat for Humanity and local youth football and wrestling programs as a coach, and asked what she did to donate her time, she shot back, "I've donated hundreds of hours to Hillary's campaign!"

          Hamster alert: She donated her time to the campaign of someone whose stated goal is to further push the government in a gynocentric direction while simultaneously stealing from actual societal contributors and somehow I was the greedy one for telling her to get her hand the fuck out of my wallet.

          Women are not altruistic. Not even a little bit. They do what they do because there is something in it for them, always.

          This is an excellent post, have an upvote.

          "Its a funny story. Growing up I always wanted to be a teacher. I got my degree and started working as an aid at [white trash district elementary school in the area]. Boy was I in for a surprise. Here I was this cute middle class white girl and now all of a sudden I'm working with all these kids from broken homes. One would say "look" and show me a huge bruise covering his arm. They all had to deal with so much abuse from their families. I would go home crying every day because I couldn't help them. I had to give it up."

          I knew a feminist who delivered the very same routine to me on a date! She went to an elite university and decided to adopt 'the negro' as her charity pet, probably as some form of solidarity because women are oppression buddies with blacks! She taught for a year at an inner city school composed of more than 85% blacks. She suffered sleepless nights, major depression, and near the end of her year stint she would "cross the street without looking" as if she were pseudo-suicidal with dread for the miserable futures awaiting her students. What did she do, because she loves them oh so much? She retreated back to her Lilly-White gated community in the suburbs to pursue a Master's degree and fight the evil White man patriarchy by getting a better teaching job in an all-White school district!

          I kid you not she learned nothing from her year among them, like how most of their problems are self-induced. Assign homework? They don't do it. Have a test? They don't even try. Give a lecture? They can't be bothered to listen. Drug dealing and pimping in the bathrooms (in middle school, no less!). And on and on it goes. Somehow every bad decision and anti-social behavior she witnessed was pinned against white heterosexual Christian males, ie me the guy that was on a first date with her. She presented herself as a pious left-winger, very "open minded" and "anti-racist." In truth she had a fetish for blackie (nothing wrong with that, even in my mind) and by the end of our first date she encouraged me to call her degrading racial slurs while she swallowed my cock. "Filthy white bitch" "Stupid white cum slut" etc etc you get the picture.

          That encounter taught me something important, something that your post reminds all of us: women have at best a tenuous grasp on objective reality. They really do require male guidance and protection because they have such heavy filters and blinders in front of them. This leftist chick put herself at risk (with next to zero tangible reward) for a year in order to feel morally superior. In a single night she went from seeing me as "the enemy" (a white male oppressor), to swallowing my nut while I spat horrible things to her--all so that she could feel morally righteous, in this case "sex positive" , "independent" , "liberated" , "desired" , "free from backward religious guilt" , etc. She gained nothing by sacrificing herself for that inner city school, and when I sized her up I made certain that she gained nothing by sacrificing herself to me. The rot in her brain was beyond repair.

          The most hilarious thing about the "super inclusive" college educated crowd is that they nearly universally live in 95%+ white or asian suburbs. Or they tell you about how they lived in the "ghetto" if they went to a college in the city, where "ghetto" to them is probably below average crime levels for the people they like to think they stand in solidarity with.

          The 2nd most hilarious thing is that they universally fail to see or understand one of the most plainly obvious causes of heightened criminality and poor school performance in black communities: the fact that around 72% of black kids have no father figure in their lives whatsoever.

          [–]recon_johnny 11 points12 points  (3 children)

          the fact that around 72% of black kids have no father figure in their lives whatsoever.

          Exactly this. I worked for LAUSD as network engineer and was my job to go to the elementary, middle, and high schools to fix network issues.

          Manual Arts is right next to USC, and yeah, that area is a shithole. These punk asses have no male role model other than the gangs and rap 'artists' they try and emulate.

          Ain't nobody learning in them schools. Locke and Jordan were the absolute worst. Just like prison.

          Oh, and did I tell you about the time I went to Florence Griffith-Joyner Elementary and they had a shooting on the blacktop? Fun times.

          [–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (2 children)

          I'm pretty sure anyone that's been to an actual shithole or taught/worked in one knows this. In undergrad I started subbing at the only unaccredited school in my state. Something like 15% of the students didn't even speak English, black kids and spanish kids were stabbing each other at least twice a month, a car was stolen from the school parking lot at least weekly.

          The states response? Get a 5 million federal grant. The entire city was acting like the problem must be bad teachers and lack of flat screen computer monitors + free laptops for students.

          I see people say this all the time on the internet too. Oh a school is shitty? Must be lazy staff and poor funding.

          The answer to why the school performs so shitty is right there in front of them, but it's an inconvenient truth so they pump millions of tax dollars into something doomed to failure. Shit was absolutely maddening. I like to hope for the best too, but some kids are just bad kids and buying their school a new weight room or giving them free laptops isn't going to stop them from selling drugs and constantly assaulting each other. Those problems start and end at home.

          [–]recon_johnny 10 points11 points  (0 children)

          There's a reason you don't feed the bears. They become dependent and won't (not can't) fend for themselves. Everybody in the schools have their hands outstretched, and they expected you to roll over and give them shit.

          But no, we need to give kids ipads to use, and then scratch heads when a bunch magically disappears.

          [–]MightyTaint 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          I did tutoring at a similar school to enhance my resume and to help my community. Hands down, the staff, resources, and opportunity being made available was phenomenal. It didn't mean jack shit when the culture was "studying is lame dawg" and parents train their kids not to do shit in life then blame racism.

          If more people actually put their money where their mouth is (well, their time actually) and volunteered in some of these places, their self hating views would likely quickly change.

          [–]Squeezymypenisy 13 points14 points  (2 children)

          SRSers are usually these types. I don't try necessarily to have a diverse group of friends and plates, but it's wound up being very diverse regardless. Part is similar backgrounds in key items, part is area, part is profession; but regardless the majority of my friends and plates are not white or Asian. I'm very socially active and I have some long term strong friendships and relationships of these types.

          Point being is I'm qualifying what I'm about to say. The college crowd, and in particular SRSers, think they have this really deep understanding of other cultures and diversity; and that they're defenders of minority groups. In reality, they don't understand shit, and most the people they defend think they're a joke. The only minorities that like and approve that type of bullshit want something for nothing, or are from privileged backgrounds just like the SRSers. The way SRSers speak and act make it painfully obvious they're clueless to the mindset of the groups they think they're championing.

          Exception being the SRSers that are just trolling. They're just in it for the lawlz. But the more time that goes by, the more the growing membership is literal and serious about their retarded point of view.

          [–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (1 child)

          Ironically one of the things that sort of pulled me to this sub and reddit in general was some SJW colleagues I had at said undergrad.

          I'm a white latino, well more specifically galician-portuguese. In college when people realized I spoke Portuguese (which half of them assumed was Spanish...) I suddenly became "brown", despite the fact my physical appearance is more akin to Diego Forlan than Ochoa.

          It was one of the most bizarre experiences ever, having people in my gen. ed Multiculturalism class try to explain to me I'm "Latino" because I speak an Iberian language. These people literally seemed incapable of comprehending that Spanish and Portuguese are European languages.

          Their semi creepy attempt to put me in a box of some type sort of helped me understand their world view and more importantly how harmful it can be.

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

          SRS's vehemently fight against "privilege" in terms of race or gender or whatever, yet they usually hold the only type of privilege that really matters. An abundance of money and free time.

          [–]MightyTaint 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          That, and the majority of SRSers are white males. It's like they want to be victims of the white patriarchy, but can't. So they play advocate for the "victims" and get to get all butt hurt on their behalf. It's quite amusing, especially for the ones who aren't trolling.

          [–]Mr-Mojo-rising 0 points1 point  (1 child)

          Can't you take the father argument further?

          Sending black males to prison in bulk does the community no favors. Why are they being sent to prison? Because we have ill crafted drug policy which actually is rooted in racism.

          I get that the annoying liberals are annoying when they present their POVs but I believe that there are truths to be had among all their bullshit.

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

          I don't dispute or even argue the fact that irregular policing could or does have a direct impact on black fatherlessness.

          I merely point out that it's a subject they tread very lightly around, or altogether refuse to touch. You don't see people campaigning to keep stable family homes in these communities. You see them campaigning for more funding and better teachers.

          The reason they don't want to say "we need to take more measures to make sure kids have a father at home" is because it requires them to confront the fact that single mothers tend to be the common denominator in poor students and criminal kids.

          she encouraged me to call her degrading racial slurs while she swallowed my cock

          [–]cocaineseats 10 points11 points  (20 children)

          Somehow every bad decision and anti-social behavior she witnessed was pinned against white heterosexual Christian males, ie me the guy that was on a first date with her. She presented herself as a pious left-winger, very "open minded" and "anti-racist." In truth she had a fetish for blackie (nothing wrong with that, even in my mind) and by the end of our first date she encouraged me to call her degrading racial slurs while she swallowed my cock. "Filthy white bitch" "Stupid white cum slut" etc etc you get the picture.

          This is insane to me. Like, I'm literally shaking my head and imagining how in the actual fuck you bedded this whore. I would have absolutely let it fly at the bar and told her what a complete caricature of a basic bitch SJW stereotype she is, and peaced the fuck out. Even if I shut my mouth and wound up taking her home, then she'd want me to say all this crazy shit and call me her Mandingo and I definitely wouldn't be able to keep a straight face and not fall out of bed laughing. You're a trooper -- she must have had some kind of spectacular body.

          Also, like you, I don't care if people date interracially -- it's whatever. In this circumstance though, the racial fetishization this girl experiences is so fucked up because it's a direct result of Liberal social conditioning.

          [–]cariboo_j 13 points14 points  (4 children)

          Also, like you, I don't care if people date interracially

          In theory, I don't care about interracial dating, and I myself tend to date interracially (that is to say more often than not, I don't prefer white girls; they're too out of touch with reality). That being said, I typically find white girls dating interracially annoying. Not because I want white women or to keep them "pure", but because white girls who date interracially usually have some fucked up fetishes about it and hate on white guys. Beyond that, they think they're so progressive for having their pussy take a different shade dick (wow, you're such an amazing person girl), and they always go for ethnic guys playing a stereo typical character of their race because dumb privileged white girls go for it.

          They're just really lame and make something that shouldn't be anything remarkable into something gross; all while thinking they're super progressive for giving up their snatch to a guy taking advantage of their latent racism and fetish.

          I live in a 90% white, 10% northern Asian community in Australia, so I have no first hand experience of this kind of thing.

          Is this "white guilt" that this woman feels? Is that the Liberal social conditioning that you refer to?

          [–]cocaineseats 11 points12 points  (3 children)

          Yeah, it's a Western Liberal college thing.

          Everything in the second paragraph is essentially beaten into the young skulls full of mush. They're brainwashed to believe white people are the source of all the bad in the world, straight white males are privileged oppressors, black people get a bad rap because the system is rigged against them -- I could go on and on.

          The primary reason this girl is attracted to blacks can almost certainly be attributed to her education. This means she was classically-conditioned into a fetish, by a university -- which is fucked.

          [–]Philhelm 5 points6 points  (2 children)

          Part of the conditioning is due to the fact that in film and television, white men tend (not always...I don't want to get into that argument again) to be weak, while black men are almost always cool, strong, and funny.

          [–]MightyTaint 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          How does something like that come out on a first date? I've been doing all this online date shit and that hasn't happened to me yet. Unless it's a topic you also like to talk about I either try to talk about fun stuff or a little bit of their history. Or if they bring something silly up like "I watch <dumb reality show>" I make fun of how their hobby is to watch bad t.v. while eating up a tub of ice cream.

          If someone has something on their mind they find a way to talk about it. Just have to change what their mind is thinking about. Fun not drama.

          [–][deleted] 37 points38 points  (0 children)

          Women are full of shit it virtually everything they say. Academic or acceptable debate requires that you assume your interlocutor as arguing in good faith and treat them likewise. The problem is that the ability to just call someone full of shit and say the thing everyone is thinking turns out to be an indispensable tool. Women expand that notion as far as they can to let them continue to be full of shit without getting called on it. That's why theoreticians are so important to feminism. Being a feminist is automatic claim to being smart, educated, and worthy of that kind of discourse consideration. Moved into real life though, it's just steroids for the full of shit female.

          [–]BeautyQuark 8 points9 points  (0 children)

          It is simpler than that, if she is actually a good person. She feels like a piece of shit. She wanted to save the world and fucking failed. She is seeking MALE approval and acceptance when in her heart she feels like she could not hang.

          On the other hand if she is a bad person, this bitch is someone to watch. She genuinely believes she is Mother fucking Theresa and nothing she does is wrong. She knows she is evil and is testing you to see if you detect her bullshit. She poops gold and bleeds wine.

          Very common thing - especially in professions where you would least expect it.

          Teachers - dominated by women, yet if you talk to anyone who has been a recent product of the system or their parents, the same stories of teachers that dont care, cant teach, etc are rampant. Every time there is a strike, they harp about what changes they would like for the children, yet, the final agreement shows none of that and includes a hefty pay raise.

          Nursing - much as the same as above. Female dominated, filled with people who show little concern for the charges that are placed under their care. When my grandparents were ill, I'd spend quite a bit of time in hospitals and would invariably watch the behaviour of the health care professionals. Patient neglect, abuse, disrespect - far too common. One instance stuck in my mind - a senior collapsed on the floor in front of the nursing desk and cried for help - the nurses laughed at him. Disgusting.

          Both of these professions are supposed to be filled with people who care for others who are vulnerable and less privileged than them. Instead, its filled by women who are extremely entitled and privileged, and are just milking it for the money. They show total disregard for fulfilling the tasks assigned to them, and are protected in this negligence by powerful unions.

            It's not stupid if it works. And look around you dude. Female sexual strategy definitely works.

            It works so well that it essentially created TRP. Make no mistake, TRP is a reactionary ideology. We are all responding to an (what we see as) intolerable situation in the sexual market that imo is largely created by female sexual strategy.

            This post hit home, literally. My mom teaches in a school for children with mental issues and learning disabilities. A lot of them are from poor backgrounds. She keeps on telling us about how hard it is to be around kids like that all day, to hear all the misery and sadness that's going on in their lives.

            Then after a couple glasses of red she starts telling jokes about those same kids, it's quite horrible actually.

            The funny thing is that I, as a man, am really moved by those stories and feel compassionate in a genuine way about people who fell off the boat due to circumstances beyond themselves, and there I see my own mom, presented as the most compassionate human being you can possibly imagine by society, making fun of the kids she teaches and works with everyday.

              But when you examine her story through the lens of "listen to their actions, not to their words" the subtext falls apart. If you truly gave one shit about these children, why would you abandon a position where you could help them however slightly in favor of pursuing a completely different line of work where you won't be helping them at all? Wouldn't you spend the rest of your life lying awake at night wondering whether you could have done them at least some good?

              Yes and yet no. It is entirely understandable that one reaches a point of callousness/realization that nothing you do is actually helping, and that attempts to mitigate can in fact make things worse (by keeping people in a bad situation).

              But, I think he story falls apart in a DIFFERENT way. Go back to the earlier part where you paraphrase/quote her:

              "[...] Here I was this cute middle class white girl and now all of a sudden I'm working with all these kids from broken homes. One would say "look" and show me a huge bruise covering his arm. They all had to deal with so much abuse from their families."

              So... broken homes, and abuse from FAMILIES. Families?

              Who has custody? You know darn well who has custody; the abuse isn't from just "families", it has it's roots in the mothers... the women.

              Yet I rather doubt she would be an advocate for changing the system that creates those abusive "broken homes." That's where the real hypocrisy and lack of compassion exists.

              Women don't engage with reality, they engage with their emotional response to reality

              They engage in what they wish were true, as opposed to the way it is.

              They feel better by talking about things and by being listened to while men solve the mother fucking problem.

              The reason why women do this is simply because they feel better talking about things, NOT by actually doing something to fix the problem.

              Read this again, "women do not feel better by solving problems and therefore don't".

              Since their emotions rule them over logic, they value feeling better more than making the situation better.

              Feeling better is their emotional motivation. They then do what makes them feel better.

              We men understand that "shit doesn't get better by talking about it", so we fix the mother fucking problem and look down on people who can't get past simply talking about it and then doing nothing about it.

              He would need to be sure he has his resume ready, because no matter how much of an asset he is to the company, women do feels before reals.

              I guess that's why they're so easy to manipulate. This kinda freaks me out a bit actually...

              It's a weakness that makes them predictable. That predictableness gives you power.

              If he can make her feel good, the transaction is not important.

              As someone still in the anger phase, I can't help but just get pretty angry every time i hear shit like this.. I know I need to move past it but it seems like every time I talk to a girl it becomes a negative experience

              [–]laere 12 points13 points  (5 children)

              Dude just treat her like your kid sister.

              "Aww, you should post that story on the frig, so mom and dad can see it."

              When you start realizing how women are, you literally can't do anything but laugh at them, like a little baby experiencing the world, or a little baby crying, or a little baby trying to get attention. It actually makes me appreciate them more in a funny way.

              Women are babies/children.

              I have tons of stories of me having to take basically hold my ex girlfriends hand through life.

              Constantly told her to keep her speed limit under 85 in a 75 on the highway. She goes 87 one night and gets pulled over and calls me crying.

              Some guy backs into her car in a parking lot and tried to leave before she came back outside. She got outside and had a talk with him, he said he didn't want his parents insurance to go up so here's their number. They'll pay for the repairs. She didn't even call the cops to get fault for the insurance company. Couple days later she calls me crying again because his parents said they wouldn't pay for the damage and there was nothing she could do.

              Had to treat her like a baby learning that touching hot things hurts. Like goddamn woman you're 20, you should know this kind of basic shit already.

              Except given the current legal/cultural climate they're more like the psychic kid from the twilight zone episode.

              So I've seen some popular advice for job interviews or facing an audition panel that is 'just imagine them naked'.

              So to modify this concept to work for approaching women: 'just imagine them as a little baby or child'

              (Assuming of course that you're at home with dealing with children).

              [–]laere 3 points4 points  (1 child)

              It's hard for me to really explain how I do it, because I've never really analyzed my interactions a lot.

              I just come from the mindset of having fun, and it all goes from there. I just joke around with them, and don't really care if I am coming off mean or whatever.

              If imagining them as a child/naked works for you try it out. Everyone is different.

              I would say read more of the sidebar, and if you already did, read it again. 99% of people's questions are answered there anyways. Also field experience.

              Why anger? This isn't an evil act that women undertake to make your life difficult. It's just how they interact with the world.

              We all have our own lenses through which we interact. The key to success with women is understanding them. When you can see and think how they see and think, you can start speaking their language. When you become fluent, you can make them do anything.

              My ex is a teacher with a fucked-up personal life in which she has often ruined the lives of those she gets too involved with via her social and financial (she comes from a rich family) position of privilege.

              I often speculate that she sees her career as 'positive transference', in other words, 'I screwed a bunch of people over, so now I'm making it up to karma and the universe by helping these kids.'

              The problem with positive transference is that, even as you help those who share characteristics in common with those you have screwed over through 'random acts of kindness', you are taking it for granted that someone like you will come along to clean up all the messes that you left behind. And that rarely happens. The more socially responsible thing to do is to help the people you personally screwed over, and stop doing it!

              Not engaging with you're emotional response doesn't make you a man, it makes you an incomplete person.

              Not engaging with reality doesn't make you a woman, it makes you a child.

              I don't like the "ignore emotions" subtext that appears in these threads sometimes.

              [–]CDBaller 13 points14 points  (3 children)

              It's fine to feel emotions, it's just wrong to act on them.

              [–]magus678 8 points9 points  (2 children)

              While I agree with you, awareness is engagement of a sort. Not every emotional impulse needs or deserves a response; I think our ability at this discernment is one of the critical pillars of being a man, and one of the great differences between men and women.

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

              And between being functional or dysfunctional.

              I would extend this idea to say that awareness helps engage with emotions with intelligence, rather than blindly following urges.

              [–]icecow 1 point2 points  (0 children)

              It's late in the game to comment, but note that many women are willing to use, and extensively use body language like clutching their heart to shill their feelz warez. Wish I could see a list of common body gestures/self-serving they do on a daily basis (e.g. clutch heart while expressing what a hero they are for walking out on kids). Another would be a woman acting offended and putting her finger tips on her chest when she doesn't get what she wants.

              [–]Endorsed ContributorBluepillProfessor 5 points6 points  (0 children)

              they confront the involuntary emotions that source provokes inside of them. Its not about helping the kids, its only about helping her feels.

              Thus 50,000,000 abortions because the important thing is not cultivating a new life but how that new life affects my feeeeelz. My feelings, my choice. Yep.

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

              This does not only apply to women.

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

              It just goes to show what is perhaps THE fundamental difference between men and women. Women don't engage with reality, they engage with their emotional response to reality. A woman can't even fathom the difference between the two.

              A woman doesn't need to engage with reality, she just needs to deal with the tribe's, especially female, consensus. She hunts for social approval with the same ferocity a man hunts a beast to feed his family.

              Woman make a whole lot more fucking sense once you realize their deep instinctual hunger for female consensus.

              Because for tens of thousands of years, for women, being outcast from the group means death. Watch how women fight. They don't physically fight, they put on a facade of niceness, while cunningly trying to outcast the enemy from the group using social and emotional manipulation.

              Men manipulate the world. Women manipulate men.

              I wonder how a short, neutral tone "why'd you quit?" would go over.

              [–]mikesteane 0 points1 point  (0 children)

              Same as the storyteller in the film Titanic.

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

              |Its the feels shes responding to, not you.

              Have a point- great post

              Kinda the same way you've never directly seen the back of your own head.

              Yes, she is too compassionate. But who says it is good to be too compassionate? I would argue it's bad for a doctor, a nurse or a teacher. A little compassion is good, but if you have too much, all you do is suffer without helping anybody.
