How successful you are at life depends on how ruthless you're willing to be.
Successful by what measure? Biologically speaking, once you reproduce, you've been successful. Go find some promiscuous girl to drop your seed into. BOOM! YOU'RE A WINNER!
Wouldn't we just die afterwards like salmon if that was the case? We have to keep living, providing, and making money. You do that by being an a**hole

I looked into it briefly, I wasn't sure if you could do that for reasons other than physical but it seems you can. Would still take a lot of effort (convincing them since I assume they'll have requirements, setting it all up, travelling abroad alone.) And I'd worry about some of my family's feelings about it. Maybe one day though.

Funnily enough, doing what needs to be done is both required and against the law at the same time.

Haha, that is so true. When something really needs to get done, rules and regulations can f**k all the way off.

That has always fascinated me. It's like we live in this society where if you do everything "right" you most likely will be miserable and get nowhere.
One could make the case that the millennials suffer with this on a large scale because they are the compliant generation yet they are mostly miserable.
However step too far out of compliance and you will most likely suffer consequences.

I believe in God. I believe that Jesus died for our sins but since this world was made from sin to begin with, we die. Now, since we’re all given free will, anything goes. Children die, countries get destroyed, people rape others, kill others etc. it’s free will so you can’t say “How can God let this happen?”

I think we’re all just perverted people living in a warped preconception of what we think the world should be and how we should be. We don’t get to know where we started from and why we’re all here so we just wing it and fall into this social cycle. That’s why so many of us are lost.



I've been seeking happiness for years.
I've lived in hiding from the darkness.
I've spent so many hours in question.
I've prayed that God finds me soon.
Only to realize I must find myself.

Nope. Only if you care about something appearing intellectual via verbosity and not the actual point and substance.


@Persephone The Dread Are you trolling? If not then what happened because that's not how I remember you?

Blah-blah-blah it's just how the world is. Women are naturally inferiour, naturally care about being subjugated to men and all that makeup and looking like a porn star stuff (it's not that they were socialized to be this way, the culture is this way, this is what men want them to be, most of them don't know the book called ''The Second Sex'' exists, never read it or/and are brainwashed by mainsteam feminism that turns things upside down), the hierarchies are natural (remember the lobsters), children are spoiled brats and should be taught discipline, these little varmints and sporges just want to suck the energy from their parents, but they should be born nethertheless and abortion should be outlawed and all the women should be encouraged to birth more children while their clock is ticking, but preferably in their 18- early and mid 20's, rich people are rich because they're smarter, poor people are genetically intellectually inferior and are basically biological trash (the last extreme-sounding part is what's implied, but not said becase ~political correctness~ ~being subtle~) (and if I'm poor or socially anxious or somethng like that myself then I'm a biological trash and that's fair or women should be enforced to have sex and/or relationship with me and others like me). Stop behaving like a victim, you needed repressive father figure/mother as a child and you didn't have it (unlike me) that's why you're such a pathetic whiny me-me-me self-proclaimed victim (unlike me who sucks it up).

I generally agree with her leftist point of view on that channel, that's all.

@Persephone The Dread Are you trolling? If not then what happened because that's not how I remember you?
Trolling about what? Contrapoints?

Uh I have written extensive rants on some of the stuff she's said in recent videos, but I'm not sure it's worth quoting. I'll try to break it down though.

Firstly I'd have to point out that due to the way she structures her videos it makes it very difficult to know what is a joke, and what is her actual opinion but since she does tweet a bit about stuff, and I've seen some clarifications from her before...

So I'm not a fan of the 'gender = performance' viewpoint that she seems to subscribe to (in the aesthetic, and the pronoun video. I basically agree with the character Tabby in The Aesthetic video, but Contrapoints views are more like Justine's although she moved away from that I think in the latest video? The transtrender one. But it's hard to say, I think in terms of what she believes deep down she still believes/promotes that.)

I feel like her gender critical video was weak and needlessly inflammatory for a debate video (I get that it was mostly an excuse to rant at the terfs in reality, but then why dress it up and pretend it's something more? Tbh it might be more her fans that annoy me when it comes to that because they act like everything she does is amazing and.. I talked to people about the video who hold GC viewpoints and they felt she hadn't addressed their primary concerns at all.)

Also she is autogynephilic, and explains how she is in one video (she also jokes about it a lot, but her actual history is stereotypically autogynephilic) while claiming to debunk it. I understand completely why transpeople do this although I think it makes less sense than ever now since most of the community has moved away from neurological explanations for transgenderism or the wrong body argument (including the narratives she seems to subscribe to.) I mean even transmedcalists about 70% of the time fixate on dysphoria/some kind of bodymap thing and not overall brain gender now (there are popular exceptions, but most of the people I come across who are part of that don't tend to focus on that much.)

But obviously there's the whole paraphilia = icky and politically incorrect thing, even though there are both autogynephilic and masculine afabs (though I realise everyone including sexologists ignore the former group... And I also recently have realised it's not particularly useful in the long run to use ciswomen as some kind of benchmark for validity, but seeing as a lot of people do...) Gender critical feminists really need to get over the autogynephilia thing though imo, they really don't understand it and actually a lot of people don't.

But I find Contrapoint's video damaging because I know autogynephilic transsexuals who are basically trying to be open but keep getting yelled at on social media about how they can't be autogynephilic and should come up with a different word to describe themselves, or they can't be trans because they're autogynephilic (neither of which I personally believe to be true.) And her video doesn't debunk autogynephilia at all but now everyone links it because she's a popular YouTuber. The dumb thing is I know someone who is out to people in real life as autogynephilic, and everyone they know that has no attachment to the trans movement is actually accepting of them.

Also here are some thoughts I had tangentially related to parts of her last video (but this post isn't just about her/the video):

https://www.socialanxietysupport.com...-post1045.html

(I'd have to put in more time/write a longer post to address everything, but I can't do that right now, not really satisfied with this post but whatever.)
