All the girls complaining about harassment would go full screaming stalker if they saw Brad Pitt in their local Starbucks. The threshold for being the object of such attention is just lower when you're female, because hypergamy.

[–]gqtrees 86 points87 points  (12 children)

Should be top comment. This is the world of fuckin feminists. They want to scream rape harassment etc when random people try to say hi...but these same feminists will run over each other if they saw brad or gosling walking down the street

[–]2trway14 64 points65 points  (9 children)

There is some twisted logic to it though: by severely shaming and punishing men who aren't attractive enough when they make such moves, women collectively create a barrier. The result is that only truly hot men will be confident enough to approach women, because the others have learned not to.

Hence a girl's subconscious knows that, if a guy makes such a bold move, he must either be really hot and confident, or really stupid and creepy. All the "average" guys have already been filtered out, stuck on the barrier, because they're not dumb enough to try this more than once. So for any suitor that boldly jumps the barrier, all her subconscious has to do is decide in which extreme he falls: the top 10% of men, or the bottom 10% of men. Generally an easy task, just look at the kind of guys in the video.

Shaming bold men who don't make the mark aids women in separating the very best men (potential alpha fucks) from the average men (potential beta bucks) and the absolute losers (potential jail scum). That's how this whole thing helps women in fulfilling the AF/BB strategy.

It's just another case of the rules being made to see who is attractive enough to break them. Not attractive enough? Be a meek boy like the rules prescribe, go in the beta bin where you don't bother us until we need your money and emotional support.

From the woman's point of view, an attractive guy has something of value to give (that's why he's attractive). Just by talking to her and making funny jokes he gives her energy and makes her feel good. If Brad Pitt approaches her, she hopes that everyone will see it happening, because she gains social status from it as well. "This is just what I needed today!"

Conversely, the unattractive guy only wants to take something away from her. Not just her time and energy, but also her social status, because being seen in public with such a loser does not reflect well on her. She feels like she has to harshly reject him, otherwise other girls might think that she is desperate enough to give such a creep the time of day. To her subconscious, the harassment is a challenge to her SMV ("do they really think I'd go this low?"), and complaining is necessary to rebuff that challenge and announce to the world that she's above them. This challenge makes her stressed and upset. "I don't need this shit today!" That's when she hits up the internet and complains about street harassment.

When Brad approaches her, she hits up the internet to brag about it.

[–]insickness 13 points14 points  (0 children)

This is exactly it. It's a barrier. They are reinforcing the evolutionary mechanism of approach anxiety. Shame is the huge disincentive for the average man in taking this kind of initiative with women. The potential fall-out has always been a collective punishment of men who tried and failed. Whereas alphas are relatively immune to shame.

The problem for women these days is that a lack of shame does not necessarily make you an alpha. But as long as it keeps all the middle guys away, it's fairly easy for her to separate the wheat from the chavs.

[–]gqtrees 9 points10 points  (2 children)

as males this is how we initiate with women. Not all of us try to say hi to a stranger (because some of us are shy) but the general way is, we initiate first, we go up and try to initiate.

Yes i agree creeping her, following her without consent is retarded, but from our primal instincts, hasn't the male been taught and hardwired in that you must be first to initiate. You must impress the girl. Every single one of those guys good looking or not think they have a shot with the girl, they think they can say hi and she will respond. Is it not like any other species in the world trying to attract female attention? And like any other species, she is not going to give attention to everyone. That is nature is it not? That is how humans have been reproducing for centuries for the majority? no?

Now we are being told, no that is harassment. What about all the videos of pick up artists going up to random girls. Same concept is it not? Random girls going down street, guys with game going up and chatting her up. Most of the girls are responsive, give out their numbers...make out. What is that supposed to be?

These people who are now saying no men should not be bugging women. If me a good looking guy saw a girl down the street who i was really intrigued in and I got that feeling, hey wow she is really beautiful, let me see if I can get a minute or two of her time. She might be walking along on her way to something important or she might just be walking window shopping who knows. But now if I go up to her and say excuse me, sorry to bother you etc etc, spit proper game. It is automatically going to be labelled harassment? That is bullshit. Of course if she is not responsive, i am not going to bother her about it.

If my dad did not "harass" my mom, i would not be alive right now. I don't think humans would be alive, if countless males did not "harass" their SO.

So yea like you said, this shit is fucking retarded. Someone else please chime in on this issue....i really want to see what others think about it.

[–]2trway14 8 points9 points  (0 children)

This is why TRP teaches that you shouldn't make it your mission to get women. Find your passion (e.g. dancing, or sports, or teaching, or whatever). Put energy in it because you enjoy it. The fact that it makes you attractive is just a bonus.

Initiating just for the sake of initiating isn't the way to go. The real battle is not about getting the guts to approach a girl: if you don't have any substance to yourself, you will initiate and still get shot down. The real battle is being a man. Having a mission gives you the substance you need to be a man.

Then you can initiate, and you won't be shot down. So first focus on yourself. You can't make women your primary goal, because then your confidence still depends on their validation. A man needs to find that validation in his mission.

You can't depend on the affections of women because they're fleeting, due to hypergamy. Nobody is on top of their game all the time, that's why it goes in waves: sometimes you're a hot commodity with women, other times you're in a slump. Like Patrice O'Neal said, one day you call a woman "bitch" and she's all over you, the other she goes all feminazi on you and gets her brothers to beat you up.

If women are the sea and you're the boat like David Deida says (who I'm otherwise not a big fan of), then getting your confidence from female validation is like being an unstable boat on the ocean. Fucking waves will drag you all over the place. You need to get your boat some substance so that it's big and weighty enough that the waves can't do shit. Also, a boat is not at sea for the sake of being at sea. It has a target, it's going somewhere to get shit done, it's catching fish or whatever. The fact that that brings you in contact with the beautiful ocean is just a bonus.

Not all of us try to say hi to a stranger (because some of us are shy)

I'm not sure I believe in shy.

It's entirely possible that what you someone percieves as shy is their own conditioning by females to self identify as a beta male. In other words, the women's training has worked spectacularly in their case.

It's similar to how when I play guitar, on certain chords my pinky goes to the wrong fret. The right fret feels "unnatural". It's not because I have an innate flaw that makes my pinky go to the wrong fret, it's because I have mistrained my pinky to go there. With enough training I can retrain it to do the right thing. Similarly, if it feels unnatural approaching women, or just generally asserting myself, it's not because I am innately "shy" but rather because I have mistrained myself to not act in an alpha male manner, probably by taking shit tests to heart and accepting my training as a beta gratiously.

Your interpretation is well thought out and beautifully presented.

[–]luciansolaris 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Nice thing is, the shame is really a shit test, and ignoring the shit test gets you win.

[–]2trway14 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, that's basically a summary of it. But like I said, it only gets you win if you're attractive enough to back up the confidence. Otherwise she'll peg you as one of the stupid and creepy guys. Like I said in my 2nd reply to gqtrees, there has to be more substance to you than just confidence.

[–]djvita -1 points0 points  (0 children)

the thing to take away with htis is to not fear apporach women. its a shit test anyways. beofre an approach, girls act like the girl in the vid. once i talk ot them they melt

[–]TheeRyanGrey 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Well no now you're mixing things up.

Feminist aren't women. Most women would love this attention because attention is the female version of easy sex. Feminists hate it because 99 percent of them will never get it.

This is why they're the most likely to fabricate stories of harassment, it's wish fulfillment.

[–]2trway14 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Your understanding of the ugly feminist's bitching is spot on, but there's a catch. Even normal women don't like bold displays of attention from guys they perceive to be below them. Such low SMV guys are only allowed to show supplicating beta-style attention, if anything, and then preferably in private rather than in public. Boldly approaching her in public is claiming that you're alpha, and if that claim is false, it must be punished.

Girls get that "creepy" vibe when they sense an incongruence between his behavior and his SMV: he takes the liberties that only alphas can get away with, but he doesn't have the SMV.

From the woman's point of view, an attractive guy has something of value to give (that's why he's attractive). Just by talking to her and making funny jokes he gives her energy and makes her feel good. If Brad Pitt approaches her, she hopes that everyone will see it happening, because she gains social status from it as well. "This is just what I needed today!"

All those feminists blaming everything on "patriarchy" should actually be saying "hypergamy". It's really the root of all things. It's why men are usually "better" than women, because we HAVE to be to get laid.

[–]1ImRasputin 268 points269 points  (33 children)

That's your gym motivation right there.

[–]omglazers 50 points51 points  (15 children)

Totally. It makes me ashamed to think I slept in an extra 30 today instead of using that time to lift even a little.

[–]miles37 114 points115 points  (11 children)

Sleep is important for health and gainz brah. Stress only makes you stronger if you compensate with proper rest and nutrition, otherwise it makes you weaker.

[–]cryptonoob123 31 points32 points  (3 children)

please mark his words. many worldclass athletes are sleeping 10-12h a day (that does not mean you need as much as they need). it's unbelievable important too sleep enough.

[–]DexterousRichard 1 point2 points  (2 children)

True, but good luck with that if you have a high pressure job. Or have a family as well. Or have both and want to have some free time sometimes.

Just have to make do with less sometimes.

[–]cryptonoob123 1 point2 points  (0 children)

if you do not have enough time to sleep in general, then you should set priorities in life. it's your health, not your wife's. but that's only my mindset.

Too true, and I have a huge weekend of touring a top graduate business program, but the hotel gym was right there and I slipped on myself. Thanks for reminding me though that sleep isn't the enemy though

[–]anonlymouse 15 points16 points  (0 children)

You grow muscle in your sleep, not in the gym. You lift to stimulate muscle growth, but not to cause it.

[–]justskatedude 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Genetics don't matter. Why? Because you can't change them. Don't focus on genetics focus on maximizing your potential: mentally and physically.

[–]Masonjarteadrinker2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

For real, diet motivation also.

[–]john-b -5 points-4 points  (8 children)

I'm going to disagree. If your main motivation for going to the gym is women, you've missed the point. Looking better physically is just one small bonus of working out regularly, and being noticed by females is a side bonus.

The main goal of working out should be to challenge yourself, improve confidence, improve mental & physical energy levels & improve health. Lifting has been shown not to just build muscle but increase mental & physical health in huge amounts of ways in men. Lifting is simply a natural mind & body improvement.

    [–]john-b -4 points-3 points  (4 children)

    I'm arguing that it shouldn't be the main or only focus. It should be improving yourself, challenging yourself & making yourself fit for you - not for the sole purpose of satisfying others.

    [–]Fuck_Your_Mouth 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    I don't stay in shape to satisfy others... I stay in shape because getting pussy satisfies me. It's still about my satisfaction.

    Why does it matter? Doing the right thing is doing the right thing, even with the wrong motivation.

    [–]downvote_heaven 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    It's not the wrong motivation anyway. What do we need to be extra buff for anyway these days? We don't hunt. We don't use our physical prowess in order to stay alive. After a certain modest point in physicality, you are going to live longer than the guy who goes all out anyway, statistically. Think about it man, it's mostly for sex.

    [–]rapreaper 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Hunters weren't buff they were athletic. They needed stamina more than strength.

    [–]widec 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    All those benefits can be had with any form of tough exercise really. People here only advocate lifting because it will make them look better. There's a reason why we don't see a post everyday that says "go cycle"

    [–]JihadDerp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I don't care if the car is black or white, as long as it catches mice. Who cares why you go to the gym. The important thing is to go.

      I'm not turning heads or dropping panties despite my impressive physique.

      [–]pissoutofmyass 11 points12 points  (0 children)

      Yep, all the tall guys contradicting the short people who have actually lived the experience. Its just a fact, height is a barrier to entry. You're out of the market for these kind of things (street admiration) if you don't make the cut for things that are genetic and unchangeable.

      Not that a person shouldn't work out and get fit, but its undeniable that there are some aspects of life that are made available purely on the basis of genetic luck.

      [–]Masonjarteadrinker2 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      Face makes a big ass difference.

      [–]FaithfulJinn 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Exactly. It's arguably just as important as height.

      I mean by all means lift and get muscular to give yourself as many advantages possible, but I'm tired of people acting like getting buff is the magical answer to getting laid and becoming attractive.

      Now I'm just a short dude, with an average face, and lots of muscles. I mean yeah it helps but it in no way evens the playing field. Natural genetic advantages like height and facial aesthetics will always trump something like muscles or money, which anyone can attain. Not to mention simply by being short alone, the pool of women available to me is already much smaller than a guy who is taller.

      But I honestly don't like to have this same discussion over and over. No use bitchin over shit you can't change. Just be the best you possible.

      [–][deleted] 47 points48 points  (43 children)

      dude's also got above average looks and and tall (6'1 or 6'2)

      a shorter man would not have gotten that attention.

      [–]1ubiety 21 points22 points  (21 children)

      The GoPro optics makes him look taller and therefore more intimidating than he actually is - though his gym gains are undeniable. If you're short and constantly raging internally about how short you are, you're focusing your mental resources on something you can't change and it's literally pointless. Remember, good things come to those who lift AND eventually drop the victim mentality - so what if he's taller? If he's boring, shy, poor, awkward his height won't help him. Being taller only adds to his existing package of knowing how to dress and being decked.

      [–]football1010 35 points36 points  (0 children)

      No you're wrong, a short man would not get the same attention despite being equally fit. It has nothing to do with having a victim mentality, it's just a fact.

      [–]busior 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      one inch shoe lifts +10% to SMV lol Now seriously has anyone conducted a little research into this ??

      [–]pissoutofmyass 3 points4 points  (18 children)

      Being taller only adds to his existing package of knowing how to dress and being decked.

      If you think this you're living a fantasy. Being decked and knowing how to dress only adds to his existing package of being tall. Being tall lets you be an obese uggo and still score 7-10s. Its just a fact of life.

      [–]alclarkey 18 points19 points  (2 children)

      5'7" guy here. I'm good looking, and I'm reasonably built, not like this guy in the pic, and I've gotten cat called before. Actually, I had a couple of chicks follow me from the gas station. Height does matter, but it isn't everything. Get jacked it will do wonders for you.

      [–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      I've had that kindof stuff happen to me too. doesn't change the fact that I still wouldn't pull women nearly as easily as a tall guy.

      [–]Masonjarteadrinker2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      5'6 here, broad shoulders with a good jaw and face, been cat called as well and get plenty of attention. We are either the exception to the rule or these dudes are just psyching themselves out

      [–]needless_pickup_line 2 points3 points  (3 children)

      [–]needless_pickup_line 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      Dude I am 6'3". Trust me. Of course it makes it easier that I am tall but it's never automatic. There was such a huge difference for me before and after getting in shape. If there is one thing that gets you girls it's muscles.

      [–]Masonjarteadrinker2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Nice height brah, throw a few inches my way haha.

      [–]Shaft-of-Patriarchy 3 points4 points  (10 children)

      So laughably wrong.

      6'2 here, and I get decent results. But the hottest women in any given club are generally going to go home with guys in the 5'8-6'0 range. Short guys get plenty of tail, and usually of a higher standard.

      Mainly because women want a guy who is SOMEWHAT taller than them. Not like 16-17" taller. And for me the hottest girls tend to be in the 5'0-5'4 range, so...

      My main plate is right at the absolute extremes of how much height difference is practically possible, she's 5'0, so 14" difference. The top of her head doesn't clear my shoulders. But she's self confessedly into "Hercules" types. Most women these days aren't. The days where extreme muscle and height got you the best looking women are over.

      Now, if you want those women you turn up skinny as a rake, with a tiny tiny bit of muscle to give definition to your 7% body fat, a fat wallet, hipster clothes and 10/10 facial aesthetics. Otherwise, sorry, game over

      [–]reddiforlove 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      Where I come from, top tier clubs (and strip clubs) have 5'9 model chicks wearing 3-6 inch heels just to weed out guys from the height range you describe as taking home the hottest girls. If guys who are 5'8-6'0 are taking home hotter girls than you, it's because they are beating you in other areas, because you have a huge advantage in the height department. The hottest girls in the top tier clubs I frequent (which usually require you to be famous or with a group of girls to even get in) get into are either going home with guys in 50K+ cars or 6'4+ athletes.

      6'2-6'4 is The Dream for these women. You are greatly mistaken in thinking women want a guy that's ANYTHING relative to them, barring extremes. They don't want guys who are tall relative to themselves, they want guys who are taller than other guys, just like they aren't satisfied with guys who are just stronger than them (all men), but want guys who lift weights to obtain muscles that are largely unnecessary in a civilized society.

      It is borderline blue pill to believe that women are attracted to men who would be a good match for them, women are attracted to alpha males. Period. There is no logic or reason to it besides primitive impulses in their brains.

      [–]football1010 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      What you are describing is a study of what is considered attractive in your city/town. Other cities/towns have their own norms. In some places land whales walking the streets with generally fit guys is the norm, and if you want a normal girl you have to be both tall and attractive/muscular.

        [–]Shaft-of-Patriarchy 0 points1 point  (3 children)

        The kind where effiminate and small has come to symbolise fashionable. And fashionable has always gotten guys laid with women in those circles.

        And women in those circles tend to be among the hottest because they spend the most time on their looks and bodies.

        Small, but somewhat defined frames are what is in vogue, and have been for well over a decade

        Fuck how far back do you have to go to find a heartthrob who doesn't fall into that catagory?

        All the twats from One Direction, Justin Beiber, R Patz is borderline at 6'0 but again, smaller frame, hell let's go back further, Brad Pitt couldn't crack 6'0. Johnny Depp.

        Big, extremely tall guys filling these roles hasnt been happening since the mid 1980s. And what are women really attracted to? Power.

        How do you convince women you have power? In a world where strength and violence are by and large obsolete? You fit the archetype of the man that all their school friends are getting wet over.

        Some people need to open their eyes to what is actually happening in the real world and stop assuming that the rules are static and don't mutate as society does. Because they do.

        Same hypergamy, different ideals of what is considered valuable.

          Bullshit. I have a friend who is 5'9 but incredibly huge and vascular on his upper body and while he's a pretty looks-oriented guy, he gets compliments everywhere he goes. You're fucking full of shit. Maybe taller guys have it easier, but I'd rather be stronger (And stronger looking) than taller, any day of the week. Now I'm not some short guy who got bitter at your comment, I'm just looking at it logically. I've SEEN short, ripped guys get treated JUST like this guy in the video (if not worse).

          Now I'm not some short guy who got bitter at your comment

          No, but I think the guy you're replying to probably is (I'm on the shorter side myself--the struggle is real).

          Truth is this guy is fit as fuck, naturally good looking (ie tall dark and handsome), and dresses and grooms himself well. If you're lacking in one of those areas maybe you can still get a similar reaction, maybe not. It's just going to be harder. Of course you can still do what you want if you put in the time and effort.

          Bullshit. I have a friend who is 5'9 but incredibly huge and vascular on his upper body and while he's a pretty looks-oriented guy, he gets compliments everywhere he goes.

          He never said 5'9 is short.

          dude's also got above average looks and and tall (6'1 or 6'2) a shorter man would not have gotten that attention.

          5'9 is shorter than 6'2, learn to fucking read, dumbass.

          [–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (9 children)

          when I said shorter I meant shorter than average not shorter than him, bindlestiff.

          [–]kernelkob -1 points0 points  (8 children)

          Well it's not his or my fault that you lack the English skills to properly convey what you meant. Plus 5'9 can be considered below average depending on what statistics you chose to look at.

          [–][deleted] -2 points-1 points  (7 children)

          Lmao, you're such a hilarious mong. It was nothing to do with equivocation, you just failed at communicating what you meant.

          [–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (5 children)

          first you take my post to mean that literally anyone shorter than him would never get that kindof attention and then you start debating what even qualifies as an average height. so yes you're a pedantic equivocating moron.

              Here's the thing: catcalling is annoying for both genders. It's flattering at first, but it gets old quick. The difference between men and women is that just like any problem men have, we don't bitch about it and start a whole movement to stop petty issues.

              [–]McGauth925 7 points8 points  (2 children)

              It's very much a major part of women's culture to complain about men. They very much encourage each other to do that. So, it's hard to know how important it is. For instance, I asked my wife if she's ever cat called, or sees that happening to other women. She says, it's really not an issue.

              It probably happens more to pretty attractive women, and it seems to be more a part of black culture. So, I have to wonder if it's a real issue for black women. Or, is it a case of feminists looking for things to complain about. Complaining about men brings feminists together. They really do have to keep working on the solidarity, by publicizing various issues.

              Begs the question just how often women check guys out, but we don't know because they're behind us. That would make for an interesting video series IMO.

              Even if it is a bit fake or edited... you can say the same of the other video with the girl walking down the street..anyways we make ourselves attractive to attract.. it's human nature ffs.. peacocks wear their feathers to attract peahens.. maybe some peacocks get more attention than others.. so fucking what I'm sure they deal with it without too much whinging.. this whole street harassment thing is so moronic.. And thats the problem with modern feminism.. moronic arguments.. it's a dumbass waste of time. I wish modern feminism would actually create something worthwhile to the human race.. fuuuuck!

              [–]tymet 10 points11 points  (1 child)

              The weird thing is, this doesn't just happen to guys that look as good as he does. Realistically I'm a slightly below average looking guy and quite short, and though I'm not "harassed" that frequently, the shit that has happened in the past was way worse than what happened to the girl in that video.

              I was on the street one night with my phone to my ear talking to someone and some drunk fat chick grabbed my arm, nearly made me drop the phone, and tried to drag me to the club she was going to with her friends. One of her beta-orbiters had to step in and drag her off me and say "leave him alone, he doesn't like us".

              Another time I had an ugly chick in a club try to dance with me and when I turned to leave she grabbed my shirt (my favourite, quite expensive, shirt) which resulted in it getting torn. (I mean, what do you think would have happened to me if I had grabbed a girl and torn the front of her dress?) But do you think the bouncers or anyone else gave a shit about what she did?

              I know some of us want to believe this is real but can someone find an indication as to whether or not this satire or a legitimate experiment? The video literally says "pranksters" so I have to question this.

              [–]CatastrophicMango 7 points8 points  (1 child)

              This is just as legitimate as the video its referencing, given the amount of info we get from both.

              Not that it's really necessary. Walk around anywhere with lots of people for several hours and inevitability some of those people are going to say things, as incredible and terrifying as that apparently sounds.

              Also - I need to go to the gym more often. Much more often. Time limited by work and kids, but definitely going to add an additional gym trip to my week. Will bookmark this for motivation.

              Makes me wonder - was there a subset and how big a subset of girls that saw the original video and though, "fuck, I should lay off the ding-dongs and lose a few."

              [–]bluedrygrass 3 points4 points  (0 children)

              Fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. Just look at how unashamed and reckless those xomynz are.

              The female that made that other video is probably fuming right now.

              I suggest to watch another youtube video, it's called "crotch bulge starers" or something like that, about a man that puts stuff in his crotch and a micro camera near it, and then goes on public transport systems.

              There are women literally licking their lips watching down there.

              rebecca upton 15 minutes ago

              They edited out the white guys in the [female] street harassment video - which is the only valid criticism of it. We have no way of knowing how bad the harassment she faced was, because it was a poorly edited video that didn't include white men in order to protect their image and throw black and latino men under the bus. Don't kid yourself into thinking they didn't edit out more blatant forms of harassment to protect white men.

              The burden of evidence is ultimately on the feminists, and as such this video serves as a nullification of the original. How? Any legitimate critique against this video is automatically legitimate critique against the original video due to their similliar methods of production.

              I enjoyed this very much. I'm not clear on why people are picking it apart...the guy is buff, but he's not Brad Pitt good looking...so the relative attractiveness between the two videos is comparable. The point was to show that this sort of verbal harassment (if you can even call it that) happens to all people with good SMV. Hell, even I get the occassional comment if I wear a tight shirt, and I'm not as buff as that guy.

              Feminism tries to paint women as victims..this video proves they are just human.

              [–]culofiesta 1 point2 points  (0 children)

              The day that video came out I was out with my girlfriend, I had just worked out and was walking to meet some friends at a bar. Some guy catcalled me "What's up boss?" and when I ignored him he called out after me. I thought it was particularly funny because I was still a bit keyed up about people on FB and on here talking about the woman's catcalling video and how it was A SERIOUS ISSUE!

              [–]skoobled 1 point2 points  (0 children)

              PRICELESS. We should all pity these poor unfortunate hot people. Life must be so hard for them

              [–]ConfidenceMatters 1 point2 points  (0 children)

              Here's the thing though.

              Men, especially minorities in the hood who naturally act bold, flamboyant and confident, etc. are not ashamed for trying to scoop up fresh prime pussy (even average-ugly-bitches). Hell, it's funny in the hood to get rejected. Dudes in the hood find it amusing to hit on women regardless of outcome. Some of course more dedicated than others.

              So when this average white girl with a fat cellulite ass walks by the hood, of course she's gonna get hit on.

              But women, especially quality ones, do not go out of their way to hit on a guy. Because slut shaming is a real thing. No girl wants to be that girl, no matter how hot the guy is.

              Therefore I'm not too sold on this video

                This video hit the front page yesterday. It was interesting to see most of the comments from males being about aspiring to achieve the guy's physique/attractiveness or praise/admiration for the attention he was getting. Very little outrage or protesting the injustice of "street harassment.". That reaction just reaffirms the distinction between wanting to improve oneself to stay competetive within society's standards and wanting to remove or dismiss as unjust those standards which you don't meet.

                  Right, just like how the original was in no way edited, staged, planned, or total utter nonsense. You reject the same thing from someone else for no good reason. Your best defense is trying to claim maybe we need to stop Street harassment for men too, but that wouldn't agree with your established ideas would it? What a joke.

                  [–]omglazers 0 points1 point  (3 children)

                  The director of the original is catching flak with others for the nature of the video and TRP has drawn issue when they found out he talked about the editing of certain people out. On mobile, can't really find all the other threads related to this.

                  Honestly, I think the whole thing is absurd. Women do have their own unique issues that maybe we should address, especially in Africa and Middle East, but this just doesn't matter to me.

                  [–]1Dev_on 1 point2 points  (2 children)

                  Yeah, that was already discussed and settled. This is the equivalent of the funny or die 'harassment' video that just came out too. It's not a serious part of the conversation

                  But I'm with you, between the editing, the blatant racism, and the idea that in 10 hours, the best they could find was someone walking beside her (didn't see him even look her way, so I'm not convinced) it's a rediculous issue.

                  problem is people who actually have 'proper' street harassment when walking put themselves into the situation, and their actual grievances now give some credibility for this money-grab-femenist kickstarter-esque campaign

                  Don't forget, they still do want money. Sarkesian has taught people that you don't have to do it well, but you can make a shit ton of money off of people by telling them they are victims. And the beauty is. The shittier your pitch is, the more people call you on your bullshit, and the more that it looks like 'harassment' and you get to pad your lucrative speaking tour.

                  Anti intellectualism run amok. Difference is theres even starting to be femenists calling them out on their bullshit, and the 'they aren't real femenists' argument isn't cutting it anymore.

                  Its the one thing I like out of gamergate. Stupid issue, but points out how stupid the arguments usually are

                  But yeah, this is a prank video, and op didn't realize it.

                  [–]omglazers 0 points1 point  (1 child)

                  When I see the name Sarkesian or gamergate, I just exit thread. I've got no interest playing the social media victim bullshit, from either side. I feel like people need that drama in their lives though when they lack large scale goals or just need to find value or purpose. It's easy to feel purpose by simply spending all day retweeting and blogging to feel like you've contributed. It's a lot harder to spend years abroad fighting against genital mutilation and rape when you're giving up a part of, and risking your life.

                  [–]1Dev_on 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                  slacktavism at it's finest. I've killed a little time with it, and aparently shes pretty much regurjitating two specific femenist theories from the 18-19th centuries. Which I'm sure made sense, back when they were property, but have no bearing on modern society.

                  When I get around to reading them, and their detractors, I'm curious how this will all play out, since it's most likely going to be completely ignorant to the conversation thats already happened.

                  I agree on the 'so what' factor. If it's anything more than a distraction, you're invested too much.

                  I will say this too. The one good thing to come of this is that youtube is adding a whole bunch of great 'gamer' channels on my watch list, which are actually pretty entertaining, and fairly well written.

                  I kind of take chomsky's role though with moral imperative, and only holding someone responsable for the consequences of their own actions... in that sense, I'm more than happy not to have another college girl heading off to africa to 'save the world' but fuck, sort your own house out. Theres plenty of issues here more pending than 'video games are rape'

                  ... the majority were dudes and light skinned women (1st group, 2nd group, 3rd dude, 2 gay dudes, gay dude in costume, & white or asian girl at the end).

                  Well the previous consensus was that there wasn't street harassment in that first video.

                  Maybe in reality both men and women get harassed?

                  so the girl video had a girl that was at max a 7/10. this guy is probably a 9/10 in looks. it's biased to get the point across, stretching to get it

                  I don't advocate at all for white knighting, but I do see inconsistency in this being our argument against the woman's version. we have better arguments than this against that bullshit video

                  It's fucking irrelevant if you have to be slightly more attractive as a male to get the same result, the point is that the same shit happens to both sexes and it's laughable to call it harassment.

                  This guy is equivalent to the girl in the original video, in terms of how much sex they can get.

                  Attractive man = average girl

                  matter of opinion. personally I think she's pretty hot because of her figure. you can tell her ass is phenomenal from the front.

                  Which was chosen because of the neighbourhoods they were shooting in. Equally biased.

                  lol she's only 20 lbs from being pear-shaped. wipe away a half pound of make-up while you're at it
