@Hodgekin No, I think I got your point; There will always be a hierarchy of people, and even if everyone did self-improvement, you'd still have a bottom % who could never get any action.
My point is that there is mobility in the reproductive hierarchy - simply due to the fact that not everyone will self-improve, and not everyone will have a RP mindset.
Hierarchies are fine, you just want them to be somewhat mobile. But the black pill doesn't seem to acknowledge any mobility, while TRP does.
@Hodgekin It's true there will always be a bottom % of men (and women for that matter). But if self-improvement works to reshuffle the bottom %, as you say, that means most individuals have a certain influence over where they are in the hierarchy. Most people aren't going to do anything but to blame external factors (the genetic lottery, culture, feminism etc), so it doesn't really take that much introspection, somewhat independent thinking and self-care to at least get in to the top 50%.
And that's the difference between red pill and black pill, as far as I can tell. The black pill focuses on all the things you can't do anything about (and laments it as if to say the blue pill is how it's supposed to be). TRP focuses on the things that are (at least to a certain degree) within your control, and provides you with a bit of agency (for those who don't realise they have that).
Self-improvement being able to reshuffle the bottom % is a good thing, not a "all you're doing is..." type of pointless thing.Read More
@Aging-Chad Viagra worked for me when I had that problem. It's probably mostly mental, as you say. You go limp once, and then you're paranoid it's going to happen again. Thus begins the vicious cycle of going limp because you're expecting to. Can't really get into the sex either, because your mind is preoccupied. Half a Viagra 4-5 times broke the cycle for me, never had the problem since.
On a different note: Who do I talk to about stuff that doesn't work around here? I can't access my comments. When I go to my profile, and then "all comments by...", I get a small message on the top left saying "file not found".
