American men shooting freethinkers down

Post by MattHanson1990 » May 24th, 2015, 1:47 am

American women have shot me down the most, but a lot of American men have as well (except those in this movement). American men tend to be more down to earth than American women, but a lot of them are also mean-spirited, fake, and plastic. In the US, a lot of men are jerks while most women are stuck up narcissistic entitlement queens. If you tell a non-HA American man about the differences between American women and foreign women, he will shoot you down by giving you politically correct bullshit, especially if you tell an alpha male or a pick-up artist about the differences.

American men will give you PC crap if they fit into any of these categories:

-They have only traveled in the US and/or Canada
-They have only traveled to Western Europe, particularly for business purposes
-They haven't travelled that much in less developed countries while doing most of their traveling in North America.

I have only traveled in the US and Mexico, and the only place in Mexico I've been to was Ciudad Juarez. But I noticed that the differences between Juarez and most places I've been to in America were like night and day.

I did mention the two Americans in Ciudad Juarez shooting me down on a different thread, but I didn't start a thread on how dysfunctional a lot of American men (non-HA) are until now.

I too fancy myself a freethinker, and I have experienced this "shooting down" phenomenon. It is a form of "Cognitive Dissonance" in that those who experience it believe it might be true, but it goes against their conditioned beliefs. Their negative reaction reinforces their thoughts to the contrary.

Think of the Shakespearean quote, "The woman doth protesteth too much," which means a woman to negatively overreacts in an interaction with you is likely fighting conflicting feelings of passing for you. That same principle is a play with being shot down because you are challenging one's worldview.

With few exceptions, Americans are not an intellectual people. We are a dogmatic people and dogma likes to dominate and stamp out freethought.

I have very few male friends. This is by choice since most American men are sarcastic assholes. Most would throw their "friends" under the bus in order to get a whiff of p***y. They very much match what American women have become. And if they aren't overtly assholes all the time, they are pretty-boy manginas. The biggest manginas in America tend to be the most attractive guys because they never have trouble with women. They are immune to what the average guy faces when it comes to females. Whichever they are, they definitely shoot down other guys, whether it be for sniffing p***y or for shaming their views.

I agree with most of this.

But I'm not comfortable with your use of the word "intellectual". A lot of Pacific Islanders for example, who have the ability to listen and perceive and feel and observe, might spend little or no time on intellectual pursuits. But they might accept and understand your heartfelt worldview easier than a defensive, educated American.

What I'm saying is that "intellectuals" can be bullies. And non-intellectuals can be open-minded.
