If you are a beta male that has accepted that you are not women’s first choice in a world of encouraged hypergamy, you need to understand that it is not the end of the world. Though your position comes with a lot of shame and embarrassment—especially if you realize what you are after a messy divorce—it doesn’t mean that you are locked into that social standing. Beta attitudes are learned and misunderstood as a normative male trait since it is normally driven by other betas or their allies (who don’t hold men in high regard to begin with). It is meant to make you become a warm and fuzzy abstract of a man so that the world around you feels no need to give you extra focus. To be beta, is to be a part of a wave of modern men that are not allowed… [Read more]

Despite my reluctance to title this article with such a polarizing and subjective word as “good” the content that I am writing about basically requires it. Ideas about what a “good girl” is and what it requires to be a good girl are so rooted in our upbringing, our culture and the times that we are living in. In an article I read about Good Girls in the New Millennium there is a girl that is described as a “good girl”, she is a 28 year old Hispanic woman that waited until after college to have sex for the first time since she was trying to protect herself from an unplanned pregnancy. The story continues with the outcome of when a smart, educated woman finally does have sex, she contracts gonorrhea from one partner and then genital warts from another. Alicia felt stuck—she’d done “the… [Read more]

First things first, are pick-up lines ever NOT creepy? No, they aren’t. Just stop using them. Period. Some people have made the claim that pick-up lines are funny and endearing if the guy is attractive and yet creepy and off-putting if the guy looks like a troll. The real issue isn’t about the creepy factor, it’s the interest factor. If the girl is interested in the guy then the approach seems more like…validation. And when the troll crawls out from under his bridge, it’s more like, “…oh wow, is this what I’m attracting…? Yikes. No, thank you” kind of thing. Melissa Kirk poses the question, “Can The Good Guys Ever Win in the War of the Sexes?” in relation to a Missed Connection that was posted on Craigslist from a guy who met a girl at some social event; part of the event had a… [Read more]

In College I played a lot of billiards (understatement) and got the chance to meet many people from different backgrounds. One the people that I met was a man… let’s just call him Mike for the sake of this article. Mike was talked about quite a bit for his cocky attitude and marvelous skills with a cue stick.  Having grown up playing the game Mike understood the art of English, angles and stroking a cue in a way that us late-bloomers could not begin to fathom. Well what does this have to do with finances? Well there was a day when Mike faced off against a wannabe hustler who thought he was good and the battle reminded me of the way people are with money. When Money Is Reflected In A Game of Pool… So Mike and the hustler faced off and the difference in… [Read more]

Many people want to wear the “hustler” label because it sounds cool and all of the ex-drug dealers who rap are making it out to be the essence of manhood. The truth of the matter is that many so-called hustlers (especially self-proclaimed hustlers) are just wannabes, busy-bodies, or small time businessmen who hustle backwards. To be a hustler you have to do exactly what the definition says – you have to be “about it”, on your game, and seize the moment whenever it presents itself. hus.tle (hus.tled | hus. tling): a : to obtain by energetic activity <hustle up new customers> b : to sell something to or obtain something from by energetic and especially underhanded activity <hustling the suckers> c : to sell or promote energetically and aggressively<hustling a new product> d : to lure less skillful players into competing against oneself at (a… [Read more]

What a year… no worries I won’t violate my own rules on Politics by getting into that mess of 2012, but even beyond the First World problems of America it has been nuts on the reading and writing front. I enjoy reading almost as much as I do writing (and I love writing) so I did a secret experiment this year. For the first half of 2012 I read many feminist-tinged blogs, blatantly anti-man blogs, and ezines with a heavy female audience. Why you may ask? Well I wanted o see what the other side had to say on a daily basis. The results of my lurking lead to some pretty sobering conclusions about the war of the sexes. I learned that men in general are looked down upon in many ways like children. Many women of the internet come off as angry, demanding, and… [Read more]

Nobody likes to be told what they are “supposed to do” on a date especially when the person making up the rules is the sole benefactor. Women who say that a man should always pay for the date, always be chivalrous, always bend over backwards, etc., etc., are the same women upset when we tell guys to try and get the panties on the first date! If a man is to court a woman then the courtship should be voluntary, not a step by step process ordained by some “relationship expert” on a feminist blog or website. Just like a guy didn’t tell his woman how to cook for him or the way she should massage his ego – a man should not be told to pay for dates and kiss a woman’s hand upon meeting her. Men don’t live by some handbook on “how… [Read more]

I absolutely HATE when people ask me "Why don’t you want any kids?"

I recently spoke with a good friend that I have been out of contact with for some time. In the first few conversations I was asked the question that irks me beyond words. “Why don’t you want any kids?” I absolutely HATE when people ask me this question because it implies that I should have kids. And Why? Why is it that only women get asked these dumb ass questions? I don’t hear of people asking men about children. Is that what women my age are supposed do? Is it because traditionally women should be the ones crazy about children? Because all humans (specifically women) need to reproduce? Well screw all that!!! I live for me and beyond other people’s expectations. Why couldn’t she have asked me about school or work? Or how about my life goals or hell ask me about my health. But… [Read more]
