What is hilarious to me is that they don't seem to recognize the fact that the Dove campaign only exists to sell more of their product. Even the people who came up with the campaign don't think your obesity is beautiful, they just know you're stupid enough to buy into it and fork out your $$$.

Obligatory link to TLP article:

http://thelastpsychiatrist.com/2013/05/dove.html

"Women are their own worst beauty critics.... At Dove, we are committed to creating a world where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety... That's why we decided to conduct a compelling social experiment that proves to women something very important: You are more beautiful than you think."

"Oh my God," you might say, "I know it's just an ad, but it's such a positive message."

If some street hustler challenges you to a game of three card monte you don't need to bother to play, just hand him the money, not because you're going to lose but because you owe him for the insight: he selected you. Whatever he saw in you everyone sees in you, from the dumb blonde at the bar to your elderly father you've dismissed as out of touch, the only person who doesn't see it is you, which is why you fell for it. Even mirrors fail you. Hence a sketch.

Dove is a brand under Unilever. Unilever also has some great products under the Axe Perfume brand. It makes sense to carry products for both women and men, and market accordingly.

Exactly. What many people don't seem to realize is that it isn't the 'patriarchy' thats selling them this impossible standard of beauty, its the beauty product companies, because making women feel shitty about themselves is good for business. Classic "create the disease; sell the cure" marketing.

The media is run by capitalist enterprises who make huge profit in making people feel inadequate enough to buy their product.

Short man shaming really pisses me off. I'm 6 3 myself so I have no problems with height but I feel so bad for short dudes. Particularly short guys who hit the gym. It's a never ending stream of comments behind their back about how insecure they must be, or how obvious it is they are trying to compensate for being short. I'm like "fuck you, those guys already got dealt a bad hand in the attraction stakes, and now you are judging them for wanting to sculpt the best physique they possibly can?"

Women have enormous protections when they're in poverty. As men, the amount of help is lopsidedly little. It increases significantly if he has a female dependent though. Feminism didn't push for equality here.

Section 6. United States of article Gender differences in suicide:


In the United States, the male to female suicide death ratio varies between 3:1 to 10:1. Typically males die from suicide three to four times more often as females, and not unusually five or more times as often. Females report attempting suicide at a higher rate than males in the United States. When accounting for parasuicide, the rate between males and females shifts to 1:2. This is likely due to several factors, including a higher risk for depression among females in the United States. Use of mental health resources may be a significant contributor to gendered suicide rates in the US. Studies have shown that females are 13-21% more likely than males to receive a psychiatric affective diagnosis. While 72-89% of females who suicided had contact with a mental health professional at some point in their life, only 41-58% of males who suicided had made use of this resource.

But also see where it says that the rate is 1:2 if we take into account failed suicide attempts. Men are far better at killing themselves, because generally they don't attempt it for an ulterior motive, but rather because they wholly wish to die.

Exactly. We all know how women are when it comes to attention. Nothing guarantees months/years of it like a failed "attempt". Men typically wait until they are sure they want to go through with it, they will find the most efficient way to do it, and they'll do it.

[–]1 Endorsed Contributormordanus 89 points90 points  (43 children)

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

Men don't need to be protected. It is assumed that we can fight for ourselves and any time we ask someone else to fight for us it is looked upon as a weakness. Women however aren't just allowed to be weak, but they are expected to be so. Women are put in the same category as children. Women and children first and all that.

Women are constantly in need of protection. Everything that happens to them is someone else's fault and of no blame to themselves. They could walk around drunk and naked and it wouldn't be any fault of theirs if something happened to them. Women's feelings are like a national treasure or something. We do everything in our power to protect those feelings even if we lose good men in the process.

So when a fat woman walks around fat as fuck with no inclination to stop being a fatty everyone has to come to the rescue. We have to attempt to warp reality to buffer them from the realization that being a fat fuck is pathetic. No one will do that to a man because no one fucking cares. No one cares about us. Our feelings are about as protected as pigs in a butcher shop. Some people fight for us but they are seen as crazy.

Women however aren't just allowed to be weak, but they are expected to be so. Women are put in the same category as children. Women and children first and all that. Women are constantly in need of protection.

Well, two things here. Women are weaker physically and emotionally. This is a physiological thing, not a societal thing.

Secondly, women are in constant need of protection. This is just an evolutionary fact. If half the males in a tribe die, the next generation is back to normal size. If half the females die, the next generation is half the normal size. It's an evolutionary imperative for males to protect the children and females.

Adding to this, much of TRP is about how to best handle women... and part of that is protection from other men. You wouldn't let your girlfriend go out and get drunk at a club alone... you would protect her from dangers, including ones that come from her.

I don't see any problem with any of this.

Everything that happens to them is someone else's fault and of no blame to themselves.

Now you have jumped into societal issues, and while correct, shouldn't be lumped in with evolutionary ones.

[–]1 Endorsed Contributormordanus 9 points10 points  (2 children)

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

They are one in the same though. The reason that we have societal issues like protecting women (even from their own stupidity) is because of evolutionary conditioning.

Here's the thing. We don't live in a tribe anymore and until the world has a major shut down we won't be living in a tribe. The dynamics between the genders has changed a lot. Women aren't under constant threat anymore so they aren't in need of constant protection. Also since we aren't a tribe I don't give two fucks if the majority of women need protecting. If they can't handle their emotional instability then too fucking bad. None of us signed on to have to make a fat chick feel good about her fat self.

If women want to become subject to a man's rule then he can be protected by his resources. That's the tribe mentality right there. Women no longer want that contract and are doing whatever the fuck they want. Men in turn are doing whatever the fuck we want. The majority of us don't feel like being captain save-a-hoe. If that's for you then fine, but it isn't for me.

Agreed but that isn't the way society is anymore. We have to learn and adapt. It isn't a tribe mentality and daddy government will always step in to make sure their protection and needs are met. We have no such blanket to cover our asses. It is up to each of us as individuals to fix ourselves because no one else gives a shit.

Honestly, I think it's a bit worse for a guy to be super fat than for a woman. Woman's bodies do tend to hold onto fat more than men's, this is for childbearing reasons. Testosterone give us a leg up on all that physical stuff anyway.

However, building muscle mass and definition is harder than not getting fat....

If you are talking a "little" extra weight then ya I agree with you. If you are talking a sickening amount then I think both genders are equally pathetic. Too much fat on a woman ruins any attractiveness same as it does on a man.

[–]ss4james_ 4 points5 points  (1 child)

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

Yeah, but I think the blame often lays with the parents of these people as well. Back in the 80's and 90's there wasn't nearly the focus on health as there is today. But even today, I know of people who give their 2+ years olds soda and shit like that. I'm not going to call all fat people pathetic simply because some of them are actually victims of shitty parenting.

The important thing I think we can agree on is that if you're fat, you should be taking steps to better yourself, whether you're male or female. Also, let's not sugar coat it with this "fat shaming" and "fat acceptance" nonsense.

[–]1 Endorsed Contributormordanus 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I used to be a fat dude. I've lost a lot of weight and I am still working on losing the rest. I have about 10-15 pounds left to go. Being fat sucks. You are invisible to people and it's unhealthy as hell. Putting on your socks is a trial. Anyone who would rather live that life of unhealthy laziness rather than going out and striving to become better should be called pathetic. I was pathetic and I know that. I won't let myself get back to that point.

    You've been trolling here for the last few days. Hopefully you are enjoying yourself and learning something.

    K first off if you notice the deeper meaning in most of this sub, it isn't about hatred of women. It is about hatred of a weaker self. We hate the guys that we used to be. We hate the guys that are like how we used to be. Very few of the people here are actually natural alphas and so we have a history of regretful actions that make us cringe to look back on knowing what we know now. So it is exactly like you say. We hate manginas and white knights. We can't stand them. We kind of hope that they will change their mindset but no one is holding their breath for that to happen.

    And you're right in that we don't blame women that much for being so entitled. A woman came in here and made a post asking what we would do if we were a beautiful woman. Most of the guys answered that we would do the exact things that most of us have claimed to hate. They would take men for everything they have and give nothing in return.

    Most men are really stupid when it comes to women. They can be geniuses and have a great mind but have no thinking power when it comes to resisting a woman. The chemicals that go flowing through a man's mind when he falls in love is similar to being high on cocaine. Lots of rushes without much in the way of thinking.

    With that in mind would it be fair to blame men for being taken advantage of? If the reason that men protect women and allow an entitlement mentality is equivalent to being addicted to a drug, shouldn't women shoulder some of the blame for taking advantage of them? All interesting questions without a clear answer.

    Here's what I know. White knights suck. They fuck it up for the rest of us. But a woman who refuses to become self aware and gets the addle minded idiot men to constantly destroy themselves for her isn't a good person. A woman that tries to justify her own obesity as healthy or beautiful is rationalizing her own shitty decisions and trying to set the blame on those that don't find her attractive.

    Also wanted to point out that it isn't the ideas of men to protect women. Notice that when a woman needs protecting she ALWAYS looks to a man to do that protecting. It is ingrained in us. Fat chicks cry to the media to change reality to conform in a way to make them feel better. So yeah I can say it is fair to blame women for this.

    Funny thing is: short acceptance / bald acceptance would actually make sense. Because these truly are things that you cannot change.

    Fat acceptance is just a bunch of lazy assholes that don't want to put down the cheetohs and get on a fuckin treadmill.

    Fortunately for women, the only things men care about are things that can be changed. Fat women can get thin. Small titty women can get implants. Men dont care if chicks are short or tall for the most part.

    So basically fat acceptance is women complaining that men have any standards at all and another BS way of them trying to remain accountable for nothing in their lives.

    White-knightism is an utterly disgusting thing that has gained popularity in society. We have so many men who think that women are the fairer and weaker sex (while simultaneously thinking that gender is a social construct like 1984's doublethink), so that they need to be coddled and protected.

    That's why society helps weak women, but not weak men. It's because the knights subconsciously think they'll get sex from women by protecting them, and they don't bother to do the same with men.

    Um... women are both the fairer and weaker sex. Believing this isn't against TRP. Only if you take those beliefs and turn them into "women are perfect and aren't responsible for their actions" do you turn into a white knight.

    So yeah. I think women are the fairer sex. Because I am straight.

    And yeah, I think women are the weaker sex... which is why I lead relationships.

    [–]3 Endorsed ContributorRedPope 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

    I know you get it, but in case anybody else doesn't: When we say women are the "fairer" sex, we are referring to the 4th definition of the word:

    fair — adj

    1. free from discrimination, dishonesty, etc; just; impartial

    2. in conformity with rules or standards; legitimate: a fair fight

    3. [...]

    4. beautiful or lovely to look at

    Men who believe the first two definitions will inevitably suffer a rude awakening. Women can be as biased, dishonest, and crooked as the worst of all men. They are weaker, so they hide it out of necessity. But once one of these women feels confident she has a dominant hand, once she believes in her heart that you are beneath her, all that bottled up venom will gush out in a tidal wave of cruelty and hate.

    Every one of them, every single one, has this reservoir of poison building up inside, just waiting to spill over. Why is she bringing up some argument from four years ago? Because that's how long its been festering.

    I think you misread, because I also don't think I explained myself clearly. My intention wasn't to say women aren't physically smaller/weaker than men. They are, I agree. Basically, the men who think "I am man, you are woman, have sex with me" without being a RP man frustrate me. Sex doesn't fall into your lap when you bend over backwards for a woman just because she's a female. That's what I meant by men thinking women are the weaker sex, thinking they should just "get women" by being male, but I could have used a better term.

    Doublethink. Excellent word. It's like how some people ferociously think evolution and survival of the fittest is more legit than creationism (bear with me here just making a point) but will heavily support welfare systems for minorities and single mothers.

    [–]1KingofRiders 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

    Evolution and 'survival of the fittest' are not the same thing at all, unless you mean 'natural selection.' In which case natural selection only works on a long term basis where evolution can occur. Which is too long a term for welfare to matter. Also nearly 100% of selection pressure is on men and not women so supporting women likely won't dilute the genepool.

    The dinosaurs, for example. Roamed the earth as kings for hundreds of millions of years and were wiped out in a few thousand years because of a giant space rock. In this case the fittest were shrew like mammls who hid away in the dirt. And so physical weakness/dependency =! fittest to survive.

    Note also that if we're going to base our political ideologies on the 'natural world' then humans survived the hunter gatherer era by both competition with other tribes AND supporting the women and children and other tribe members.

    I probably wouldn't rag on your post as much as I am if it was relevant to the redpill but you're just spouting your own bullshit political views and trying to defend them with a weak understanding of natural selection.

    Thinking evolution is a more rational explanation of how we got to where we are than creationism doesn't imply that people who are evolutionists think that we as humans should just keep playing by nature's zero-sum, survival-of-the-fittest rules; Poor comparison (pun unintended).

      According to this, the success of suicide rates is higher for men. Attempted suicides are in favor of females:

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gender_differences_in_suicide#United_States

      It's another story why that's the case. It could be suicide method preferences and/or higher rates of pretend suicides or a host of other issues.

      Section 6. United States of article Gender differences in suicide:


      In the United States, the male to female suicide death ratio varies between 3:1 to 10:1. Typically males die from suicide three to four times more often as females, and not unusually five or more times as often. Females report attempting suicide at a higher rate than males in the United States. When accounting for parasuicide, the rate between males and females shifts to 1:2. This is likely due to several factors, including a higher risk for depression among females in the United States. Use of mental health resources may be a significant contributor to gendered suicide rates in the US. Studies have shown that females are 13-21% more likely than males to receive a psychiatric affective diagnosis. While 72-89% of females who suicided had contact with a mental health professional at some point in their life, only 41-58% of males who suicided had made use of this resource.

      The world has never, ever catered to males.

      A little short-sighted don't you think? Women haven't even been able to vote for as long as men. Women are still oppressed in many societies around the world. It hasn't even been too long in America that they've been treated "equally" and worshiped for their vaginas. This promiscuous trend isn't that old. I agree that men have always provided for women, but you can't say that women never got a shitty deal in societies where they are put in the corner and not allowed to speak their mind. There's places where men could beat their wives. You sound like you're saying men have always been the victim, but that is just not true.

        Checking out those links, i'll make a reply when i'm done.

        EDIT: the "trading up, instead of down" line really hit home in reference to how women wanted to switch places with men now because the technological advances as well as other developments made living as a male much easier, but they didn't before when things were tough for men. This video is very informative, you're correct. Thanks for the link! It illustrates well that women had been provided for and men had it pretty shitty, a good example was the Inuit people.

        Only if you define oppression the same way the feminists do. Traditional gender roles is not oppression. Control of female sexuality is not oppression. It's just good social policy.

        Case in point: look how far America is down the shitter now that we've stopped these two things. We can't even get these "liberated" tarts to reproduce at replacement rates so we have to import third worlders.

        Not being allowed to speak your mind isn't oppression. Would you say that punishing your child for talking back is oppression? No. Why? They have a limited experience, undeveloped cognitive ability, and contribute nothing. Not that I think women should be beaten, only a weak man has to beat his wife to achieve dominance.

        [–]EVILEMU 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        I would classify not being to speak your mind as oppression to an extent. I understand not saying offensive or inciting things, but having the freedom to talk and be talked to like a person who's opinion is valued is a pretty nice thing to have. google defines oppression as "prolonged cruel or unjust treatment or control." control over speech was a mild example, not the flagship of my post.

        only a weak man has to beat his wife to achieve dominance

        That doesn't make her un-beaten. i'm talking down to the societies that allowed that (and still do).

        I agree with your statement on children. I agree that women have been provided for forever. I agree that women have been more closely protected. The other reply to my root post was very informative and changed the way I look at this. I recognize that my post was ignorant. I'm glad I could learn something. Here's the video if you haven't watched it, it describes the issues with the history of women pretty damn well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUMifHT1AwY

        Islam was created my men. The world didn't give men Islam. And the 'privileges' males receive in Islam are counter-balanced by social responsibilities.

        Males in Islamic society hold all responsibility towards society and family. When a wife fucks something up, generally in Islam, the man is responsible for it. Not the woman. Same for kids. Men are responsible to society for the actions of his family.

        That isn't catering to males.

        If these women want to treat each other like they're in preschool and give themselves a gold star for jamming cookies down their faces I say let them.

        Madison Avenue:


        Madison Avenue is a north-south avenue in the borough of Manhattan in New York City, United States, that carries northbound one-way traffic. It runs from Madison Square (at 23rd Street) to the Madison Avenue Bridge at 138th Street. In doing so, it passes through Midtown, the Upper East Side (including Carnegie Hill), Spanish Harlem, and Harlem. It is named after and arises from Madison Square, which is itself named after James Madison, the fourth President of the United States. Since the 1920s, the street's name has been synonymous with the American advertising industry.

        Karen Straughan has some really good videos on this. The main point being that men need to prove they are useful to be valuable.

        Women feel they are valuable just because they exist.

        Let us basically treat that as the starting point. So we know why we all think the way we do. A fat woman is still going to think she's valuable just because she exists. A fat man is going to think he is useless.

        She also says that as men need to prove their worth, we are always competing with other men and so we don't just form alliances with men just because they're men. We need a common goal or purpose or something.

        Whereas women can form bonds with women solely on the basis that they're other women. They can have nothing in common with them, but still bond. More importantly, they value belonging, so they belong to the women's tribe and thus will support those in that tribe.

        So we see that women will support the fat acceptance movement for women.

        Now men, we don't have a fat acceptance movement for me. 1. We like to be useful and prove our worth. A fat lazy man is not something we want to support. 2. We don't support our fellow man just because they're a man.

        Should we get upset that feminists try to improve the lot of women and not apply the fat acceptance movement to men? Meh, why get angry? All you really need to do is let the babies be babies and not deal with them and make sure they get their dose of reality. At best, make sure the reigns of power don't go to reward these people.

        If you really want fat acceptance for men, then support your fellow man :P But we're not really going to do that. We have higher expectations and we know society will go to shit if we lowered our expectations and accepted everything as is.

        And yes society doesn't give a shit about men. But more importantly, men don't give a shit about men. And how can we expect women to give a shit about men, if men don't give a shit about men. This is especialyl true of feminists who we know work against men constantly. We don't have a right to fckin complain.

        I'm not saying we should become lazy and have no standards and support a man fat movement. I'm just saying, complaining about female hypocrisy in this regard is just silly when we don't give a shit about other men.

        This is a great point men do not care about men in the same way as women and that may be a big reason for there being no such movements. Yet I am not advocating for a male fat acceptance movement, I just wanted to let men out there know that they can only rely on themselves and nobody else.

        Also women will work together unless they see the other as competition landwhales aren't worried about other landwhales stealing their resources or men. Yet as we all know once one of them loses weight, they are ridiculed, shamed, and cast out because men strive to be better than other men, while women strive to the best bitch around anyway possible.

        Men are expendable for the most part. I'm sorry but it's true. We fight the wars. We suffer the most privation from hardships. There's always a beta chump lurking in the shadows waiting to captain save-a-ho a faire maiden should she be in peril. There's no on waiting to save us from our mistakes.

        An incentive for our hardships and sacrifices is regular access to sex with fit, chaste, and pleasant partners. Women have forsaken their part of the societal contract, no need to honor our part of the deal until they get back on the saddle.

            Being inbred does not make you "retarded." It takes away diversity which makes you more vulnerable as a group to the same diseases. It's not good but it's not going to fucking make you instantly too dumb to survive. Animals are forced into situations like that all the time.

            And once you get to first or second cousin territory (which would happen after just one generation) there is no significant genetic drawback anymore.

              When the woman can SEE shes fat and unattractive, and she knows she's not going to attract the men she wants. She thinks she can change society to think she's beautiful and average so some of the high value men will give her a chance. That's all it is, just another form of hamstering. There are few if at any at all people that actually publicly "shame" fat women, their insecurity about their weight and beauty is just translated into magazines, media and advertising because they're responsive to it.

              Just like we all haven't noticed the lack of acceptance movement for broke chicks driving shitty cars - there's no need. They still get laid like fat rich men. Society doesn't "care" about cute poor women just like they don't "care" about fat rich men - because they're elites in their own gender hierarchy.

              Women value status. Men value looks. Period.

              One way to be a man is to not cry about things that you can't change, and it's hilarious to think that anyone can force social acceptance of things like height and body weight. We like tall thin muscular people and see them as ideal. It doesn't mean you're finished if you aren't 6", it means you need to not care about it because it really isn't a big deal.

              Body language, posture, gestures, eye contact, projecting your voice - master these and let's see if you have issues. Master though.

              If we put a fat girl in front of a guy and yelled at him to find her attractive, and he didn't to begin with, would he over time? Maybe as a result of isolation and options, but not because our species likes signs of bad health or less desirable qualities in people.

              Think of it like this - who would ask to be shorter? Not many people. But this is something you have to work with that you can't change, like being bald, having a clubbed foot, a third arm, whatever. This movement on TRP to discuss the harrows of being short should focus efforts on other attributes.

              Bullshit. For as long as I can remember, I have heard of girls who express interest in 'big men' and 'husky' men.

              Likewise, there has been an explosion in the use of the word 'bear' to decribe big, hairy guys and I'm sure some of that is just to show the world that such guys shouldnt be embarrassed about their appearance and to go on with lving life.

              Furthermore, it is a stereotype that females care less about appearance than other attributes. If you are fat, you have to compensate, but then again no one is born awesome or fuckable.

If you are an unattractive woman, that option does not exist. Most guys won't care.

              I don't buy it, not completely. I mean, if man can control his physical environment he can damn well do the same socially. We don't need to go full egalitarian but the opposite extreme would be systematic social Darwinism which is equally disgraceful. We should emphasize self improvement always but also have a safety net for those who truly did nothing to deserve their circumstance. At least legalize brothels/mail order brides to prevent the George Sodini's of the world committing suicide and taking a few others out with them.

              Unfortunately this is true, and not going to change anytime soon.

              My height just got sent below average in the West.

              This is nt the place to try and change society. Get fit, learn to be witty and not give a fuck. Then go to Asia. I don't find Asians attractive, so I'm fucked there.

              Amen to all of this. As a 5' 3" man, I know that some women (maybe even quite a few) will overlook me simply because of my height. And unlike being overweight, which can be fixed, nothing will ever actually make me taller.

              But have I complained to the world and expected that all women should find me attractive in spite of being short? Before swallowing TRP, yes. But now that I've been unplugged, I've realized that women, like men, are entitled to be attracted to whom they're attracted to and not attracted to those who they're not. That was a hard pill to swallow, (pun intended), but doing so has absolutely made me a better man for it. Once I accepted reality, I worked on dressing well and taking care of myself. I worked out more and became more outgoing. Women love well-dressed, confident men, and if I couldn't be tall, I could still certainly be that.

              In the past 9 months, my efforts at self-improvement paid off, and one of my female friend's cute friends asked ME out after meeting me. A few dates later, she told me the reason she thought I was so cute was because of how muscular and well-dressed I was. Absolute validation.

              These fat acceptance movements are all a load or horse shit.

              Sure they are fat and I accept that as does the rest of society. There may be a minor part of community which is hostile towards them but that is really minor.

              Where they are trying to get acceptance is so people can find them attractive and that is never going to happen. They are just wasting their time. Now I like curves myself and a few extra kilos but there is a big difference between that and fat/obese. It is extremely rare I have seen a girl that is big and sexy and there is a point where the extra weight distorts anyone into being ugly as fuck.

              Even the most tolerant of people is going to think "Fucking fat bitch" if you are stuck behind them on a footpath or something. The second you start interfering with other peoples lives you can expect hostile reactions. I can't just sit my ass down in the middle of a footpath without getting abused so why do they think they should be treated any differently?

              I think society traditionally protected women more with the expense of giving them less freedom. Honestly, I think in many societies women were treated kind of like cattle.. Of course, in those same societies men were sent to die in hundreds in battles like robots, so it wasn't particularly bad for women.

              In the modern society it's different to some extent of course, I was just showing how I think this came to happen that we care more about women.

              Yeah, for men overall it sucks. And for women overall it's awesome, until the illusion all comes crashing down.

              Honestly I think there is no male fat acceptance movement because, as a fat guy I've noticed thats whats held me back more than my weight is a lack of confidence caused by my weight, and not so much how other people perceive me and treat me. Its a confidence issue cause by my own insecurities, its almost all coming from inside. Bitches look at me, and they smile and flip their hair, prettier women than I'd expect too. They pass me the ball, they invite me to play, and often I just drop the ball because I'm down on myself. I doubt I'm the only at guy having this experience. Its just a matter of being self aware and honest enough to recognize the problem and address it openly. Its not them, Its you. While your weight is part of the problem, its not the bottom line. We see here plenty of fat guys who lose weight and still lack the confidence to be successful with women. And we do ocassionally see fat guys who are not apparently wealthy, with women an observer would be considered to be out of their league.

              Thinking on it a bit more now, every sitcom with a middle aged fat oaf with a shitty job and a bangin wife is a male fat acceptance advert.

              Its incredible how obsessed with image women are. They always make it sound like its all men's fault that women are so image obsessed. But I don't think so. I think they perpetuate that shit on their own, in their own rat race to see who is the 'hottest'. Because in a woman's world, beauty is power.

              As a man if you let someone's mean comments about your height, weight, penis size, bald spot or whatever get to you, you have failed a shit test. Failing a shit test means that women see you as not worthy of their pussy, and other men see you as not worthy of their respect. This is how men are divided into winners and losers. Women are all just women. There are different degrees of desirability among them, but there are no winners and losers. If you have a pussy, there are going to be men willing to fuck it.

              It's just how we are biologically wired.

              Building off some of the comments here, the femenist movement kicked off in the 60s/70s. In the 2 or so generations since, we have gotten participation medals and metrosexuality. Not to mention kids not being taught how lose with dignity. I'm all for treating women fairly, but we need to look at the unintended consequences of it.

I'm out of shape at the moment, but fixing that has made me happier than ever. So let the women have their fat acceptance. As long as I don't have to fuck them.

              i think what happens is people feel society isn't showering them with enough praise and attention often gather together and share things which they can all agree on, so the fat woman you mentioned is posting on tumbler about how she don't need no man and all men are the patriarchy meanwhile a short dude with a complex is posting on reddit about how all womens are the feminazi and he's a MGHOW who don't need no woman, etc, etc, etc...

              While SRS is the vitriolic rage of women who feel society has cheated them so TRP is the vitriolic rage of losers who feel society has cheated them... and yes, society probably has cheated ALL of you in some way or other and it is probably legitimately being totes unfair, i'm the tall and strong sort that society adores - if i didn't have nice hair, smooth skin, firm yet supple buttocks, etc, etc then i'd probably be pissed off at how easy the more beautiful set are treated; i do like to think i'd cultivate my mind to make up for it but of course i've done my best to those affects anyway, it's hard to see how simply having an ugly visage would improve my scholastic abilities, indeed maybe without the little boost in grades my teachers gave me for being good looking i might not have been interested at all in any form of academic delight - maybe even the urge to self-improvement stems somewhat from the desire to balance my god given graces with those hard-forged and it's this which inspired my studies? one might then guess mayhaps that born ugly i'd simply have sat around playing shooting games and complaining about the feminists and the gays who have ruined my life...

              I get this feeling you are trying to gloat &/or troll.

              Call it gut instinct...I've seen douchebags like yourself before.

              Go do that trolling/gloating elsewhere since putting in what you are seems only to be troll bait to fan the flames of a rookie TRPer unexperienced with a lack of knowledge on how to combat what you've said .

              TL;DR You come off crass and didn't need to include half the shit in your post and give the impression of a pompous pretty boy and a false pretense of dominant aesthetical genes over the internet.

              EDIT : OH and for the record I'm 6'01" tall. Lanky, blond and blue. But I don't feel the need to state that because it adds NOTHING to my argument.

                  Think of it as a sort of combination of explaining RP ideas and support network dedicated to helping individuals help themselves rather than trying to change society.

                  I'd hazard a guess that most RP'ers are here because we're not getting enough sex. If RP theory were more socially acceptable, it wouldn't help any of us one iota. If anything, it'd make things worse because it'd be acceptable for the "best" men to have a harem of women; women would compete to be part of a desirable man's harem and the bottom 80% of men would never get laid at all.

                  Most of us know full well that the reason we're not getting enough sex today is because we'd fall squarely in that bottom 80%. That, after all, is why we're not getting laid enough.

                  Society has made it possible for us to get some, which is nice, but ultimately it's trying to override millions of years of evolution. Which, let's face it, ain't gonna happen.

                  But the beauty of it all is that we don't need to change society. We need to change ourselves. Put ourselves in the top 20%.

                  Secondly, if your that incredibly lazy to improve yourself physically then you need to improve your standing in society. That means earn the thing that women find attractive. Money or Influence.

                  This problem is easily fixable. This is why a virtuous man would have no sympathy for an overweight woman complaining her lack of SMV relevance. She could easily increase her numerical value 2-3 points at least by adopting a more health lifestyle.

                  It's an easy problem to rectify if you really want it, if you're willing to educate yourself, and if you're willing to put yourself through a little bit of pain. If you're unwilling to invest in yourself, you don't deserve to live.
