@Zoocuffs Reading is helpful for paradigm shifts and putting pieces together. In this case, realizing that there is even a red pill to take. That said, knowledge without implementation is worthless. Reading is not helpful for actually improving a skill.
@tb87670 Dynamics have only changed for certain social circles. Kids are still partying, sluts are still sucking and fucking. Guys who impose a lockdown on themselves out of fear are shooting themselves in the foot. Guys who are too afraid to break lockdown rules are seen as pussies and as a result will not get any.
@NZT-48 Can't say what makes anyone else's life worthwhile so I'll speak for myself. Consciousness, the simple fact of being aware of experience, makes life worth it. Forget about great vs. shitty experiences - "Nothing is good or bad but thinking makes it so."
@StoicRanger r/trp has largely become a cesspool of meat-beating keyboard warriors, alfalfa males, and leftovers from disbanded braincels who spread their toxic nihilism. I hope these aren't the same people you're identifying as capable. "more perspectives and voices" isn't itself a good thing.
I see a simple solution to end this "post physique" bickering for all eternity.
If you have cultivated a physique worth sharing, put it in your profile pic so everyone can bask in the glory of your masculinity.
If you choose not to do this, because a) you're a pussy, b) you have no physique, or c) all of the above, leave your pic as is. If you haven't posted a pic, then it can be assumed you fall into one of these three categories.
Now people can choose for themselves who to listen to based off of both physique pics (or lack thereof), and quality of posts.
