I DO NOT like reality TV.
I think it is a huge waste of time and makes people care more about idiots and their personal drama rather than the world around them (things like genocide, poverty, abuses of religion/other false beliefs).
But, also, one can learn about people through TV. In particular, one show: the pickup artist.
Episode Two of the Pick up Artist
Uh, someone please tell me if I'm being paranoid by singling out the Asian guy for particular ridicule and being paranoid that it was an asian guy who this happened to.
Mystery said that EVERYONE goes through the paralyzing fear of approach anxiety.
I should temper his words.
I think there are disparities in who goes through approach anxiety depending on how their body handles various stress hormones. And also, after seeing hordes of asian men stand by the sidelines in clubs while alpha white and black men chat up their women, there is more going on.
What's the mediator to approach anxiety? Alcohol! And guess what? Asian men just can't hold their alcohol.
Do you all remember why Asian men in particular have this deficiency with being Don Juan? I again relate to you Rushton. In warm agricultural society where women were able to collect enough food for the child, men violently competed for short term mating opportunities and social dominance (through physical dominance) usually won. Thy were adept at creating attraction in short periods of time.
In colder climates, pair bonding was necessary, and because men and women developed relationships over a long period of time, the initial approach and introduction phase was never developed.
In fact, it was actually BRED OUT of Asian men through approach anxiety.
Think about it: in an organized clan, if a woman was approached and rejected a man, that guy was a goner. If a guy is rejected by a girl, why would another woman bother getting this guy as a PARTNER? So, men learned never to approach them.
In warm climates, the guy is there for a short term screw, so social status did not mean as much. You force your way onto the girl, that's it. You grunt, she grunts, ok. YOu grunt, she turns her head, no big deal. Everyone is fighting anyway.
Asian/cold climates: you participate in society and find a PARTNER.
Don't blame the media for stereotypes (I'm talking to you, fallout podcast).
No, I'm actually serious.
Because either God is CRUEL OR the religious nutjobs won't let us invest into genetic research to improve ourselves for fear of upsetting God's "perfect creation" even if the tinkering is just to let some Goddamn asian guys be able to talk to some ditz.
Yes, spoon is pathetic for not trying to improve his life. However, we have to look deeper. What is going on outside the show?
The reality show is a product designed to get ads.
The reality show also has some grounding in the real world, though.
But, hey, even the NY Times is getting a flavor of pickup artist fever! Linked to the freakonomics blog theres a post on the concept of "negging" or, insulting the woman so that she doesn't get cocky and think you want to get in her pants. Sounds strange, right? Read up previous posts on evolutionary psychology of attraction, and read up on mystery method, and finally, check out ladder theory . It ALL ultimately comes down to perceived value, which is usually transmitted through social dominance.
Things may come together.
God, the world is SO fascinating, especially when you see how everything just starts to make sense, and then on the rare occasion, your worldview gets destroyed and you advance to a new level of consciousness.
Learn about attraction, people. My aim is to destroy the monopoly on womanizing that black men, jocks, drug dealers, and rich snobs have.
