Quote# 86453

[Response to a comic mocking Pick-Up Artists and the practice of tearing down a woman's self esteem to make her vulnerable]

This is bullshit. So we are suppose to equate ANY AND ALL attempts to pick up, go out with, or otherwise "score" with a girl as misogyny against or objectification of women? Further, we are also suppose to believe that acting on these ideas is simply a mental defect in our brains completely insurmountable; ie. If you cannot get a girlfriend, its because there is something wrong with your brain?

In an ideal world you'd be able to be honest and straight with women about your intentions and eventually everything would work out. Do you want to date? You would get a simple yes/no answer. You want casual sex? Also a yes/no answer. ANY guy who has put himself out there knows this peaches and roses scenario does not exist and never will. You have to be cool. You have to be smooth. You have to pretend not to care. You have to flirt. You have to act natural at the same time. etc.

He does not realize it but the "pick-up artist" of this comic is actually the winner here. This woman he's taken an interest in has proven herself to be an utter bitch. Better to be single than to be with a stuck-up snot who believes in some sort of genetic superiority based on intellect (the foundation of said belief being completely rooted in pseudo-science).

With all due respect- actually, fuck that. Fuck you, Randall. I don't care if I get banned since I don't care to read your comic EVER again. This is too close to home. Bookmark deleted; no more recommendations.

So the guy trying to sabotage a person's self esteem to get laid is alright but the girl who calls him on his bullshit is a bitch?

And this is on FSTDT why,exactly?

^ I agree. While the guy seems to miss the point of the comic entirely, it's not fundie, just stupid.

This is why we need a sstdt

link to the comic in question.

the guy when he says "This is too close to home" basically got shot down by a girl because she saw what he was up to. in the comic, the pick-up artist chooses to hit on black hat guy's girl-friend-antagonist. it has been shown in xkcd's limited continuity that she is a grade AAA bitch, and very cunning to boot.

methinks that guy has got girl issues.

to the op: here's how i got with my girl

me:"i have nightmares"
her:"me too"
me:"wanna sleep together sometime to keep the nightmares at bay?"
her:"sure, couldn't hurt"
(a couple platonic sleepovers later)
me:"i think i love you, wanna go out with me?"
her:"yeah, i do"

easy as anything. no cunning, just friendliness ;-)

Jackass. Try acting like a regular human instead of playing fuckwitted games, and see how much better your love life gets. Also, nice flounce.

"I don't care to read your comic EVER again. This is too close to home."

In other words, it is this retard's pick-up method of choice, he knows he's a f***ing douche for using it, but doesn't care as long as no-one calls him on being a douche.

I think there's a strong possibility that he only got to xkcd in the first place because he mistyped "love-shy"!

That comic was funny! It's also got a good message: if you need to tear down someone's self-esteem for them to like you then the problem is with you, not the person you're trying to pick up.

Methinks someone's a little too sensitive about not getting laid in a while. His frustration is showing.

In an ideal world you'd be able to be honest and straight with women about your intentions and eventually everything would work out. Do you want to date? You would get a simple yes/no answer. You want casual sex? Also a yes/no answer.

I agree, however, I know all too well that this is not how women's sexuality works. True, I might just be able to ask my wife if she wants to make love and get a yes/no answer, but that comes from being married 12 years. If I were single I would never try that with a complete stranger. However, treating women like shit so you can break down their self esteem so that they will try to please you is just totally manipulative, and whether you realize it or not, most women can see through you. Maybe you should take the advice of the comic and just try treating women like human beings.

ANY guy who has put himself out there knows this peaches and roses scenario does not exist and never will.

That's odd. I tried that "peaches and roses" scenario on someone thirteen years ago. We're still together. You might want to try acting like a human being instead of playing silly little games.

Doesn't this belong in Sexists Say the Darnedest Things?

We should really look into adding SSTDT.

"If you cannot get a girlfriend, its because there is something wrong with your brain?"

Hit the nail on the head.

I like this comic hitting you close to home. It said something that isn't said enough:

"Just talk to them like a fucking human being"

It's really that simple.

Now if only I could work up the courage to talk to them for more than 10 minutes XD

Totally missing the point.

3/15/2012 8:38:34 AM

OhJohnNo

And THIS is why we need SSTDT. Absolutely and completely unfundie, absolutely and completely misoqynist, and absolutely and completely a darndest thing.

I'm not sure why what the guy said was negging/belittling, but apparently the girl is a recurring character, so maybe it's to do with something I don't know about her?

Anyway, manipulative relationship tactics suck.

Nope. ISTDT. Idiots Say The Darndest Things.

She's the Hatguy's girlfriend. 'nuff said.

Now tell us how you really feel.

What'd I Do

I stopped reading XKCD because it sucks, but to each his own.

3/15/2012 10:14:01 AM



huh? How the heck is this fundie? Even if there was a SSTDT section of this website this quote is the definition of meh!

He's not even that misogynist he's just expressing frustration with the dating game, just as I thought everyone felt from time to time- men and women!

The only reason I can possibly think for this comment being on FSTDT is that FSTDT has been inundated with the kind of confident arrogant pricks who were lucky enough to be born with enough natural subconscious charisma and charm to never need to think about these sorts of challenges and who get their kicks from laughing at those less fortunate than themselves.

@#1382686

Sure...

Maybe if you read the actual comic, you'd see why his statement is not worth defending?
