I have stayed out of the Denise Romano battles (except for this post at The Spearhead to make a somewhat related point) because it’s like fighting the Iran-Iraq War from the perspective of either Iran or Iraq. What I mean is that a lot of energy gets wasted for absolutely nothing. Despite the fact that logic and reason are on our side, we’re not going to convince Denise Romano (or many other women). And Denise Romano’s insanity isn’t going to convince us.
I came across Denise Romano’s latest drivel by accident. Of course, it’s all crap, but one thing she said caught my attention:
There are specific PUA books, e-newsletters, trainings, DVDs, lairs, bootcamps, and other “trainings” given by PUA “schools”…which also advocate the use of hypnosis
I done read or watch PUA literature so I can’t say if they really advocate the use of hypnosis or not. However, I would be very surprised if they did because hypnosis requires 3 things:
- The subject must WANT to be hypnotized.
- The subject must BELIEVE he or she can be hypnotized.
- The subject must eventually feel comfortable and relaxed.
It is impossible to hypnotize someone that doesn’t want to be hypnotized or doesn’t believe they can be hypnotized.
If any PUA is using hypnosis then they are wasting their time. Either the PUA has already been successful and hypnosis is pointless and redundant or the woman the PUA is after doesn’t want him and will refuse to be hypnotized. Denise Romano claims that use of hypnosis is “abusive”. How can it be?
Hypnosis only works on someone who already wants to be hypnotized.
Think about this. If you could force a hypnotic state on someone, PUAs using hypnosis to get laid would be the least of society’s problems. You would have people who would force a hypnotic state on a victim to make the victim “voluntarily” give hand over their money. We’re talking a weapon that can be used in murders, bank robberies, and every other crime out there. If hypnosis worked the way Denise Romano described, the world would look a lot different because everyone would be in constant fear of being hypnotized. (Fortunately for all of us, hypnosis doesn’t work the way Denise Romano says it does.) What this means is that Denise Romano is effectively saying is that hypnosis can only be forced on women by men trying to get laid. Knowing this, Denise Romano is either insane or a liar because the only reason such a claim about hypnosis would be made is to criminalize any attempt by men to have sex or have relationships.
In her post, Denise Romano also had a link (which she seems to endorse) to someone saying that hypnosis as a “method of seduction” should be made illegal. That would be a pointless law since hypnosis can’t be used as a method of seduction since it can’t be forced on anyone. This is a level of totalitarianism that is beyond anything we have seen in the last century. It makes Stalin look like a beacon of freedom.
