Last year, I wrote about how feminists were attacking PUAHate.com. At first, feminists attacking PUAHate doesn’t make sense, especially since they often consider gamers to be misogynist. The most powerful argument against game is how its a scam started by a known scam organization, The Syndicate. When you consider how revealing game to be a scam threatens the entire Misandrist Dating Advice Distraction (MDAD) that feminists use against their opponents, it makes sense. Thus it’s no surprise that Manboobz recently attacked PUAHate as a bunch of misogynists even though he supposedly agrees with PUAHate about gamers. Manboobz made a critical error in revealing why he’s attacking PUAHate.
A site for debunking the ridiculous claims and shitty behavior of Pickup Artists? Sounds great – at least until you realize that the denizens are mostly dudes who hate PUAs for all the wrong reasons. That is, they hate PUAs not so much for being manipulative scumbags but for being ineffective manipulative scumbags — whose alleged magic formulas for bedding the hot babes don’t really work.
What’s wrong with showing that game doesn’t work? If you think that gamers make ridiculous claims, engage in shitty behavior, and are misogynists, the best argument against gamers would be that game is a scam and that gamers are charlatans. It’s an argument that could actually eradicate game permanently. Manboobz should be writing about how Eben Pagan and The Syndicate (along with the C team of the so called manosphere) are bamboozling men. Instead Manboobz attacks PUAHate for pointing out that game is a scam! So why did Manboobz (and Jezebel a year ago) attack PUAHate?
- Game is feminist despite the supposed anti-feminism of some of its (pseudo) practitioners. Feminists from Dr.
NerdManginalove to Susan Walsh are busy presenting an explicitly feminist version of game. Showing that game is a scam threatens feminists who want to use game for explicitly feminist purposes and other forms of dating advice which are also feminist.
- Feminists want a devil to eternally fight. If (the manosphere) gamers were successful with women, then feminists could constantly scream about how they are misogynists and predators of women. Showing that game is a scam means that (manosphere) gamers can’t be predators of women, since game doesn’t work. Feminists can no longer seriously say that (manosphere) gamers are a threat to women. In other words, feminists need (manosphere) gamers to be successful, so feminists are willing to go along with (manosphere) gamer lies about being successful with women!
It isn’t only feminists that say they are anti-game, but are afraid of the fact that game is a scam. A similar phenomena can be found among the “Christian” portion of the so called manosphere. The Christian manospherians that oppose game do so for “moral reasons”. Thus you would think they would welcome knowledge that game is scam to boost their moral opposition to game, but they don’t. The Christian manospherians have a similar problem as the feminists. They want to present a Christian/Biblical version of game (which is impossible) around “Biblical masculinity” (which is also impossible since the modern Christian Church is hideously feminized) so showing that game is a scam threatens this task. They also want a devil to fight. In their case, it’s fornicating gamers who prey on women. Just like with the feminists, this requires gamers to be successful with women. If they were to admit that gamers were unsuccessful with women (and thus not fornicating with them), the worse thing the Christian manosphere could say about them was that gamers were lying about being successful with women. It doesn’t have the same impact as fornicating gamers preying on women. Plus, gamers often end up admitting the truth, so the Christian manosphere can’t even accuse them of lying in a lot of cases.
These two groups are examples of fake anti-gamers. They can’t admit the fact that game is a scam created by known scammers which a true anti-gamer does.
