We have been talking about how Paul Elam and Roosh have started a feud. This seems strange since AVFM has been pretty pro-Roosh, especially since AVFM has Obsidian still writing for it. It gets stranger if you dig deeper. I tried reading some of things that AVFM was saying about Roosh and PUAs in general, and it is all over the place. They say that they are against PUA works yet they give Roosh a platform. They complain that feminists are unfairly conflating MRAs and PUAs (which is true), but they give the feminists ammo running a bunch of posts defending PUAs. There’s lots of contradictions like that if you take a look at what AVFM has been saying about PUAs. So what is going on here?
As far as I can tell, what AVFM is doing is part of the MDAD (Misandrist Dating Advice Distraction). AVFM has completely alienated MGTOW by lying about it, and AVFM’s track record in terms of action for men’s rights is abysmal. AVFM is in a bind so out of desperation AVFM is playing some sort of strange game with Roosh by constantly switching between being for and against Roosh to stay relevant by generating PUA content. (Using non-manuresphere PUAs won’t work for AVFM’s purposes so they are stuck with manuresphere PUAs which means Roosh now.) Roosh is an attention whore so he’s happy to oblige.
What AVFM is doing is using dating advice to distract from their failures at advancing mens rights. That makes it part of the MDAD (Misandrist Dating Advice Distraction).
