Over time my opinion on game has evolved. My first encounter with gamers were all Roissyites (which includes the Paleo-Game Cult) which made me think that all gamers were mentally ill. This was not correct. The typical gamer is just a misguided guy trying to get laid. While game is a scam, that doesn’t mean that most gamers are mentally ill, racist conspiracy theorists like the Roissyites are. Since I have came to this realization, my anti-game writing has become more anti-Roissyite game and anti-Paleo Game Cult because those are where the problems are.
I have been thinking about this from the opposite angle as well. As anti-gamers we are opposed to game, but is our focus on game too narrow? Putting aside the Roissyites, is there anything special about game that makes it anti-male compared to other forms of dating advice? I have been thinking about it, and I can’t see how game is different. Game is anti-male, but so is every other form of dating advice. There is nothing unique about game that makes it anti-male.
What would pro-male dating advice look like? More than anything else, such dating advice would have to work and produce results for men. There is no form of dating advice that does that so all dating advice is misandrist. Since dating advice doesn’t work and produce results for men, then the only thing it can do is be a scam. That is true whether it’s a scam for purely financial reasons or for ideological reasons of keeping men obsessed with dating issues so that we don’t effectively fight feminism. All dating advice has elements of the latter.
What I call the Misandrist Dating Advice Distraction (or MDAD) is aptly named because all dating advice is misandrist and a distraction. Any attempt to provide good dating advice for men is impossible making anyone who attempts it an unintentional agent of the MDAD.
