Recently, a well-known YouTube content producer named Roosh V made his way to national media as a guest to the Dr. Oz show, a health science and life improvement variety show. In the tradition of Oprah, the Dr. Oz show caters to a largely female and effeminate male demographic. The advices these shows proffer characteristically align with commercial trends and marketing necessities. They set social trends, frame issues, inform viewers, and create knowledge that moves within the media matrix (online, television, print, and entertainment).
It is from this vantage point that we need to appreciate the invitation of Dr. Oz producers to Roosh V to discuss obesity as a health issue. The ostensible purpose of inviting him on the show was to have him explain his ideas about the aesthetic terrorism of obesity and how shaming could motivate many obese women to change their behavior and improve their appearance—the female demographic is most important socially because men, who are otherwise invisible when healthy, just do not matter in American culture.
Little did Roosh know that he was walking into a public flogging. He did not realize this until he was introduced as a “monster” and was forced to gather his wits and composure while walking out on stage in front of a live televised audience. Sitting with Dr. Oz under these conditions Roosh was shamed as a bigot, his most vitriolic words were removed from their context and used against him, and he was made to look small and pathetic. Then he was forced to endure improvised sadistic badgering by audience members.
The interview can be viewed on YouTube. Just remember beforehand that Roosh V was basically set up as an effigy of fat shaming men and torn apart in broad daylight before a mob of raging women and a few white knight manginas. His presence there was as a public sacrifice to the discontented ego needs of the female audience to beat down and emasculate a male figure, singularly, so that they could one up “men” symbolically.
There is another twist to this story. The media as an organic entity with major structural power and psychic influence was not merely interested in the public shaming spectacle of another “misogynist.” They were looking to break this person, Roosh, and transform him into a servant for their socio-political and economic program, namely gynocentrism. They did choose wisely, and I wonder whether this was through systematic research or by the type of luck that comes with practice.
Roosh V is the ideal candidate to break publically and convert into an asset operating in the manosphere. He has pretty solid misogynistic credentials. He criticizes women for their shortcomings and self-contradictory public behavior. He informs men on female nature (at least in its epiphenomenal surface manifestations) and he provides useful short-term advice and insight on how to deal with women in dating settings. Colloquially men who use psychological insight to play women into advantageous sexual situations and leave them with no emotional or other attachments are known variably as pick up artists (PUA), pussy hounds, and players. This group has worked its way into popular culture through texts that celebrate their methodology and accomplishments (real or imagined). They have been presented favorably in the media in recent years and have been guests on talk shows and on other public media platforms.
The PUA community thrives on successful applications of counterintuitive techniques and reverse psychology to induce the need for approval and validation on the part of women via sex. Sex is the currency that women use for validation (and assorted manipulative games). In response to the sexualized persona of contemporary women, in addition to their intractable egoistic presentation that does not allow men to express genuine feelings or thoughts to women in social settings, the PUA studied, developed, and exploited every insight into female nature in order to win the competitive narcissistic game of inter personal relations, in its present degraded form.
The PUA community responded to the mating call of the “American Whore” and played the game on a win-win basis. Women were able to pretend to manifest masculine bravado and sexual vitality. They convinced themselves that they could “use” men variously to buy them things or give them pleasure. Men were, in this distorted view, accessories to “empowered” women, and they did not think about the different experiences of promiscuity between men and women, Men can be promiscuous because the penis does not erode. The female body does not replenish itself, and once it has been penetrated and utilized sexually, it is a defective good. Women who date serially and who have sex with random men are used up. PERIOD.
There is no redemption for used up women and reformed whores, and men instinctively know this. Even desperate men have to suppress the knowledge of a woman’s sordid past in order to justify a physical encounter or emotional commitment with them. Women have ignored their physical and sexual purity in favor of ego gratification and narcissistic micro-triumphs over men. In the search for these objectives women opened their arms to the pussy hungry PUA’s, or men generally who have drowned out their idealized mother image with random women or meaningless relationships.
The PUA men do not play game on women; they merely play a role in women’s game. Each party plays the game in benign ignorance. The female devalues her body to the point where she is worthless as a reproductive agent and downright dangerous as a social partner. Her character development during its second most formative period—young adulthood, which is second in importance to identity formation—was not only distorted but perverted to almost satanic degrees. The woman who emerges from this period of promiscuity—riding the cock carousel—is a fully developed parasite on society and on men. She knows how to use her body to draw a man into her orbit and entrap him into fatherhood and marriage. Her persona hides a very sophisticated manipulative modus operandi—or as Carl Jung noted of one such woman in his life, “a talented psychopath.”
In a world where such women are effectively useless and unmarriable, we start to see the shift of social movements and elite media tactics. The government and media must find a way to pair these women with healthy men. The problem is that most men have walked away from marriage due to visceral mistrust of modern American women, the legal suicide such a marriage would entail, or because due to hypergamy they have not been able to find a suitable partner.
One social group that has eased itself into alpha status—through cloaks and mirrors—is the PUA community. This group of men who pretended to play women were, and are, deep down, pussy hungry hounds or beggars, depending on the day. Jung would typologize the PUA crowd as a group of men with split anima, or a fractured ideal image of the mother which cannot be satisfied by a single women; many of these men choose homosexual lifestyles to escape the psychic conflict inherent in having a split anima. Most, including Jung, carry on relationships with multiple women.
Roosh V is a PUA with obvious emotional issues related to mother; this much can be derived from his videos, where he claims to only like monogamous relations. Surely he is an honest person looking for love (fulfillment of ideal mother substitute) unconsciously, knowing that love is an illusion consciously, and operating in two worlds to carry on the masquerade. He is also the ideal tool for the media to spread the message of marriage to young men and lure them back onto the proverbial plantation. Roosh V is very presentable, soft spoken, open to personal disclosure, above average intellectually, and positioned strategically within the PUA/MRA community to draw attention to what we should call neo-traditionalism (he uses the word neo-masculinity, but this is basically a poorly thought out misnomer). Moreover, Roosh knows the psychology of pussy hungry men and can appeal to their unspoken needs and compulsions. Through his example, many men will be convinced to give marriage a try to satisfy their inner longings. Through his activism, many reformed whores will find a vulnerable man to control.
Neo-masculinity is a cynical attempt to trick men to find idealized women to settle down with and build lasting bonds. The problem is that the ideal woman for Roosh and the PUA community is a used up reformed whore with a soft voice and puppy dog face. The initial affect of vulnerability by these women, accompanied by superficial beauty, is strong enough to activate the protector/provider complex and push men willingly into the habitas of a white knight mangina. The reason for this is that these men have never addressed their ingrained mother image/ideal, and are slaves to powerful unconscious forces.
The first step in the gynocentric counter-reformation was to pluck one of these blinded “mysogynists” from the manosphere and break them. For Roosh this process was public, but surely the media social engineering agents let him save face, and allowed him to limp back home to restrategize and reinvent his image. Thus was born neo-masculinity. It was soon followed by an endorsement from Paul Joseph Watson and Infowars. The potential media exposure that a positive message on marriage from a former PUA/misogynist can have is massive. Roosh has positioned himself to make a lot of money by spreading the message to single men that it is ok to date and marry as long as the girl seems ok. I can see him dealing with these issues in his articles, for example in “Do women improve the lives of men?” He is moving towards a neo-traditional stance where men should bet married, and that there are many eligible women. But first they should take some cosmetic measures to sort out their masculinity.
Welcome to a new set of problems for MGTOW to decipher, analyze, deconstruct, and relegate to the trash heap of false consciousness. We have an extra dimension to the Matrix imagery that forms the MGTOW vernacular. In the second Matrix film, Agent Smith inseminates a crew member who is just about to leave the matrix for the real world. I do not know this persons name, but let us call him Turncoat. Turncoat operates as Agent Smith outside of the matrix and works tirelessly to sabotage the efforts of Neo, Morpheus, and company. The parallels between Turncoat and Roosh are eerily familiar. Like Turncoat, Roosh was publicly inseminated by Dr. Oz and transformed into nothing more than a proxy agent. Like Turncoat, Roosh initially experienced some pain but soon acclimated himself to his new role and identity, never looking back. More important to MGTOW and men aware of the danger of our existence, Roosh will act, like Turncoat, as an agent of the matrix to undermine and sabotage the truths of female nature and hypergamy that MGTOW have developed and adhere to. Any erosion of these truths, this armor, will leave men vulnerable to macro-social pressure and micro-female manipulation and aggression.
Gynocentrism will follow us all, even as we attempt to go our own way. Clench your fists!
