I’m sure all of you have heard about Elliot Rodger, a young man who killed several people in Santa Barbara by now. He is another murder driven insane by game similar to George Sodini and Gunwitch. While the gamers have been doing damage control by pretending Rodger was “anti-game” because he visited PUAHate a few times (which has sadly but understandably been taken down). Before PUAHate went down, I read it regularly and never saw any comments from Rodger. That’s how little he actually posted there. (At least some of the so called manosphere probably realizes this so they are already manufacturing conspiracy theories about how the shootings were really a false flag to discredit the so called manosphere.)
Rodger’s manifesto was filled with manospherian ideology and terminology (as well as dating advice ideology and terminology from sources other than the so called manosphere) to the point where he referred to himself as an “alpha male”. That’s not how an a man truly against game thinks. All Rodger’s few visits to PUAHate prove is that he knew at some level something was wrong with all the manospherian and dating advice bullshit he was reading was a complete lie. The world of dating advice is filled with so many logical contradictions in addition to outright lies that it’s easy to sense something is wrong. Unfortunately, Rodger didn’t spend more time on PUAHate (or better yet MGTOW websites) because trying to believe all of the logical contradictions and lies in dating advice will drive you insane. That’s what happened to Rodger, and he cracked leading to the shootings.
The dating advice industry is going to turn more men into killers with their scams. While the so called manosphere is using Rodger as an excuse to push game, other purveyors of dating advice are doing the same thing. The “Strategic Dating Coach” promises that his system can prevent more Rodgers.
Other purveyors of dating advice say the same thing and try to pretend that they’re different than the so called manosphere. A good example of this is at the Dickless Man Project where another dating coach pretends to attack the idea of the alpha male and other manospherian BS just to repackage it under a different name. The only differences between various purveyors of dating advice is minor aspects of style and presentation. The substance is all the same so the dating advice industry is guaranteed to produce more Rodgers, Sodinis, and Gunwitches.
