Tucker Max.. Asshole Extraordinaire: Look how he thinks he's going to salvage his reputation. LOL
It mostly just reinforces female fears and weaknesses, takes away responsibility and accountability, and coddles them unnecessarily. And massively reinforces chodedom and beta male worship of females. Not good.
I really didn't find much useful information in this article whatsoever. And to any who may have read it and seen the truth in its perspective, this is not about simply choosing to "face the reality of the situation".. beacuse if it was the information given would have to be more helpful. It's not, it's simply maintaining the current status quo of mutual paralysis on both sides.
There's a ton of misleading information and opinions in this article. Contradictions galore. For his first foray into actually trying to dispense dating advice I give this a B-.
Reacting as I read:
15 seconds into reading the article and he says that women aren't afraid of rejection, they're afraid of being physically harmed. He knows damn well that women are afraid of rejection, but he's a business man now and cares about making money over everything else. Some of his business posts are pretty damn good.
Later on he says that women are tired of being objectified. No dude, women are tired of being objectified by losers, when the attractive dude does it she likes it. He knows this and is trying to sell shit.
I keep reading and I see him mention "cocky and funny." Like damn dude is this 2016 or 2006? We're talking about c&f again?? I can safely conclude at this point in the article that this book would go straight into the ground if it didn't have Tucker's name on it.
After more bland and generic shit about men being lame and intimidating he goes on to say that complementing women is counterproductive and useless. That is a blatant lie. I'd say about 70-80% of the time when I tell a girl she's hot or pretty or whatever she either LOVES it or at least kinda likes it and I'm sure you alumni guys have even better numbers than that. If nothing else the convo turns man-to-woman and gets interesting. Then Tucker goes on to say we should be asking about her interests and background instead. Really?? Sure dude, let's just ask what her major is and what her hobbies are. That'll get her thinking about fucking you!! I mean maybe I'm being harsh because this is just a snippet of the whole book, but previously he was benign and useless. At this point in the chapter he's making shit up and giving counterproductive advice.
Most women think that men are most attracted to the rail-thin models or skinny actresses that grace the covers of the magazines they buy. They’re wrong. Studies show that most men are attracted to women with curves and meat on their bones;
Ok, this is getting painful and infuriating. How much more pandering can Tucker do?
Now he's redeeming himself with the parts on slut-shaming and other stuff. Highlights:
In fact, this might be hard for you to believe, but it’s true it is much harder for a highly attractive woman to get what she wants, sexually and romantically, than it is for a highly attractive man.
If you don’t realize that even the very first hour of talking with her constitutes a type of relationship that needs some level of mutual respect and nurturance, she will especially not have sex with you.
If she’s with you, it’s because she wants more than just an orgasm. She wants a sexual connection. She wants to feel sexually desired. And she wants you to have a great time so you’ll call her again. And often, the best way for you to give her all that is to just enjoy the hell out of her, without worrying too much about whether she comes. By all means, be great at foreplay—but do it because you love it
First half of the article was generic bullshit that any idiot reading askmen articles could have reworded. He got better towards the end.
This whole thing reminds me of how bad humans are at recognizing true quality.
Yes the end was definitely a bit better. It's pretty funny to see how he contradicts himself to stay on the femininist track throughout the article lol
