But this comic.

Is brilliant. (please pronounce that period!)


It's brilliant, full stop?

Anyway, I enjoy this comic if only for the timing.

Re: 1027: nosepick Artist

Why would pepper spray be illegal, aside from the horrible pain it would cause to anyone?

No, that would be stupid. They should carry pepper spray. Duh. Tasers are for cops and people posting videos on youtube.

This is definitely something I can agree emphatically with.

EMPHATICALLY, even.

Re: 1027: nosepick Artist

Even though Meaux beat me to it: Davver is not a jerkwad. "Rape and indeed all violence is a response to women not having sex with men" Not a jerkwad at all. Actually, it said "not a p!ckup artiest" but a filter changed it completely. Considering that ddxxdd flat out called davve...

Re: 1027: nosepick Artist

Okay, the filter turned that really weird (and creepy) post into something pretty amusing.

I approve.

Re: 1027: nosepick Artist

It's more difficult to avoid being accused of rape than to not be a rapist? HULK not entirely sure you are sane. Why do you hold this belief? Didn't you know there's a epidemic of false rape accusations? There's no wild speculation to support the belief but MRA types (and, heh, other bottom-feeders...

Re: 1027: nosepick Artist

"ignoring boundaries" is what is, which (regardless of what you may want to believe) is not automatically equatable with bottom feeding scum sucker. Quite the contrary, p!ck-up artists are even more keenly aware of a girl's boundaries than most men. A lot of P_U_A's, including Neil Straus...

Re: 1027: nosepick Artist

A more neutral way of saying that would have been: "So it comes down to: would you rather be a guy in a dry spell, or a guy who might accidentally pressure girls into sex they didn't want or weren't ready for?" I think that conveys exactly what you're saying without trying to do the whole...

Re: 1027: nosepick Artist

So it comes down to: would you rather be a guy in a dry spell, or risk becoming a date rapist? Isn't that a false dichotomy? The former is the worst case scenario of eschewing bottom feeding scum sucker. The latter is the worst case scenario of embracing bottom feeding scum sucker. Which worst case...

Re: 1027: nosepick Artist

If you are not getting IOIs you are not supposed to carry on. Increasing touching, for example, happens at a later stage after you have received IOIs. Pff a ssd will give you thousands of IO/s don't waste your time with woman. (Sorry I just find the tendency of the bottom feeding scum sucker scene ...

Re: 1027: nosepick Artist

The issue HULK having is your described "worst case" is biased towards what you want to be the worst case, and you phrased it in a way to make your desired incorrect option look as awful as possible while your correct option was phrased in a way to make it look as good as possible. That's...

Re: 1027: nosepick Artist

I haven't had sex in about 4 years. And at this point, HULK just practicing talking to girls. I haven't had much success yet. Ditch the adversarial aspects of pi-ck-up-ar-tist-ry and maybe you will. Maybe you won't, but the alternative is risking that any success you do have comes from having press...

Re: 1027: nosepick Artist

If I have a son, and I successfully persuade him not to rape anybody, other things equal it's more than 90% likely he wouldn't have anyway. Fathers teaching their sons not to commit rape is a ineffective way to reduce the rape statistics. You know that 10% might not seem a lot to you , but it would...

Re: 1027: nosepick Artist

You are flat out mistaken in your statement. The majority of the discussion (especially 20 onward) is saying how sinister many techniques and mindsets are. Most of the pro-PUA posts have been apologists citing all the positive aspects of a bottom feeding scum sucker, which wasn't even the qualm of ...
