In other words, it’s not just “don’t touch”, it’s “don’t even LOOK”.The sobering thought that comes to mind here is that this factor alone is moving our culture from an epidemic fear of approaching women to an equally pandemic state of being afraid to even LOOK at them. When was the first time you remember encountering the adjective “rapey” to describe certain male behavior? 2) The Ubiquity Of Porn This one is about as simple to throw on the table as it gets.Back at school, if a girl dared wear red underwear beneath white pants our entire dormitory new about it by lunchtime.Hell, I remember guys in pickup trucks hanging out of windows and hollering at my MOM when I was about four or five years old.And indeed, as people tuned in to their headphones they tuned out all else around them, including other humans. We type at each other on Facebook and Twitter, look at the pictures and watch the videos. Let me be the first to raise my hand and admit that I most certainly pick up the phone less often and attend fewer social gatherings these days.And yes, I can make a clear, conscious connection between that and the fact that I’ve already seen what all of those people are up to on Facebook this week.
We were actively discussing creative ways she might encourage the kind of man she deserves to introduce himself, start a conversation and sweep her off of her feet. The odds of seeing a jaguar in the wild in Florida are probably greater than that.
Given the sheer abundance of videos and images of whatever kind of woman you’d like buck naked and having sex online—and the on-demand availability of it, for free—have we as guys really just become immune to anything less?
Perhaps the more interesting question is this: Have we actually gotten to the point where an image on our computer screen is a more potent stimulus than a real, live woman?
Likewise, every #MGTOW battle cry and every stat you guys use to drive your confirmation bias has already been brought up and respectfully responded to (most of which several times).
Going forward, I’ll only be approving well-articulated comments that add something new to the conversation.
