On various blogs there has been an explosion of discussion about “game”. Some have said game is anti-Christian. Other’s have said that it can be used to get and maintain a marriage. And that is just one of the many topics of game that are being discussed.
Those of you who have read my comments know that while I have nothing against game (and think that it can be used by Christian men as long as they use it in a moral manner), I don’t see a whole lot of value in using game. My issues with game aren’t moral, but practical. Game will not protect you against STDs. (No one claims that it does, but do you really want to be having sex with some STD infested skank. Looking for women in church does not protect you against this either regardless of whether you are using game or not.) Game will not protect you against divorce, false rape charges, sexual harassment charges, etc. The proponents of game will claim that these aren’t problems, and that game itself will mean that a woman won’t do any of this to you, but let’s face it. It’s bunk. Vigorous assertion will not protect you.
Game also has the problem of carrying the assumption that getting laid (or getting married for those with that moral position) is the most important thing in the world. The practitioner of game is desperate for female approval just like the apocryphal “nice guy”. A practitioner of game can still be ruled by a woman easily and be manipulated by women through the use of shaming language. This is related to the fact that use many proponents of game use shaming language against men who do not use game. Shaming language is used to paper over the fact that game has its own problems. This is why MGTOW is superior to game. By going his own way, a man is in control of his own life.
Beyond all that, I have noticed that game carries an implicit wrong assumption, namely that biology is immutable and some sort of magic. The fact is women are NOT fertility goddesses. On various blogs proponents of game have claimed that since this is the way women are, men just have to deal with it, and men’s only option is game based on concepts of evolutionary psychology. (It’s important to remember here that a reasonable man adapts himself to the world, but the unreasonable man tries to adapt the world to himself so all progress depends on the unreasonable man.) Clearly, female behavior must have a basis in some combination of biology and psychology or otherwise having no fault divorce laws, sexual harassment laws, etc. wouldn’t matter since women wouldn’t used them. The fact of the matter is all of this is changeable. We need not be victims to evolutionary psychology. Evolutionary psychology and biology are not magic. If biology is causing a problem as it is with the way female behavior currently is, then let’s fix the biology. In the long term we can use technologies such as genetic engineering and gene therapy to do this. Granted, both of these technologies are in their infancy, and it will be a long time before we can do this. In the future genetic engineering will be used for everything else, so its perfectly reasonable as a solution to this problem too.
