Problems with the Mainstream PUA Prescription

When a woman complains that there are no good men out there, my rebuttal is simply:
They are right in front of your face, but you refuse to see them.
In other words, there are legions of sexually invisible men that would long to be with a woman. This is proven by the hordes of "forever alone" men on the internet, and the extremely high male-to-female ratios on dating sites.

Women believe that most single men out there are just out for hanky-panky, but I dispute that. Is it really the case with most men? You see PUA forums chock full of guys who want to improve their game. But do they really want to bang one chick after another endlessly? I don't think so. I think most men just want a loving relationship with a woman.

In a way, I blame the PUA crowd for perpetuating this myth. PUAs, by and large, emphasize hookup and bedding a large number of women. Most men who try to do so fail miserably if they weren't already somewhat attractive. Bottom line, subtle sexual overtures just don't work if you're not considered attractive, end of story. Hitting on legions of women will simply end end in failure and further reinforce the myth that men just want sex.

This is part of why PUA forms a major component of the "Misandrist Dating Advice Distraction."
  1. It blames men for their problems with dating.
  2. It distracts male attention from pro-male causes and diverts it into female pussy-begging.
  3. It reinforces the stereotype that men are desperate and just want sex through its prescription to hit on large numbers of women.
A recent BP post questions if non-misandrist dating advice can even exist in the current cultural climate. It's a good question, because all "advice" presumes that there is something wrong with you that needs to be fixed. What if the real problem is that womens' priorities are screwed up? Should you mold yourself to those screwed up priorities? In my opinion, hell no. Sex is not worth selling yourself out, violating ethical principles, or butchering your personality to the point of being unrecognizable.

Don't take this the wrong way. I believe that there are still a fair number of women out there with decent personalities and priorities. And people (both men and women) should always work on making themselves as attractive as possible. But beyond that, it gets very murky, and that's where a positive environment (read: shaming hypergamy/adultery) can make a huge difference.


  1. Why worry about PUAs and Western women? They are both horrible and each deserves the other. Let them have each other while decent men look for decent women in non-feminist countries.

    1. The problem is, PUA "advice" wastes the time of many decent men. If this PUA "advice" were discredited, perhaps your solution (which is sound BTW) would have more clout.

    2. InT, try to look at this positively. It is a kind of IQ test for decent men. Those who are stupid will follow PUA and will fail to reproduce. Those who are bright will realize that PUA is nonsense and will then look abroad. So InT, do the right thing and be fruitful and multiply.

    3. The fact that degenerate men are reproducing quite successfully in today's culture would seem to invalidate your argument.

      It would seem western society is resembling Idiocracy more and more.
