Game Universal Translator Week: The Skepchick Delusion

"Whenever and wherever you find Male and Female coming together, there too shall you find Game."

- Obsidian Maxim #1

By now surely you've heard of Atheist-Feminist Rebecca "The Skepchick" Watson and her "mission" to rid the atheist community of sexists, misogynists and any other kind of "ists" that lurk within the hearts of Men. Like all good attention whores activists, she's stirred the pot and put all the focus on her otherwise somewhat lukewarm attractiveness an issue of major import to the world at large. 

While everyone in the blogosphere and beyond happily jumps through the hoops that Ms. Watson has set into motion, we here at the O-Files know better - and this is why we can say with the utmost confidence that the way these Atheist AFCs are going about this thing is ALL WRONG. 

First, everybody in the Seduction community knows that Feminism is nothing but one big ginormous Shit Test writ large - it is a known fact that not only are the most staunch Feminists those who tend NOT to be all that hot looking, to put it mildly, but that they constantly cultivate an active denial of their own true natures - hence all the focus on "objectification", "rape" and so forth - even while it is a fact in our time, for example, that crimes of sexual violence are at all-time lows, and that Women enjoy more personal autonomy and sexual freedom than ever in the history of the species (to say nothing of the fact that Women objectify Men far and away MORE than the other way around; more on this point here). All of this should be seen as a cause for celebration amongst the Sisterhood - nope - in the minds of ladies like Ms. Watson, there's still this pernicious Scourge of Misogyny and the like out there that must be dealt with. 

So, what's really going on here? I'll tell you:

Ms. Watson got all bent outta shape because SHE GOT STEPPED TO BY THE WRONG GUY. 

The End. 

This is what is behind stuff like "Hollaback NYC/DC/Philly", sexual harrassment laws (recall the famous SNL skit featuring Tom Brady) and so forth; Feminists want to craft laws and customs that protect them from being hit on by lame dudes - which is the vast majority of Men out there. 

As Seduction Grandmaster Mystery makes clear in his immortal work The Mystery Method, Women who are relatively young and relatively good looking GET HIT ON CONSTANTLY - AND CAN'T TURN IT OFF. This is the basis for what we call the Bitch Shield, because Women need a way or number of ways, to screen all the lames out and separate them from the Guys with Game. Based on my own personal observation over many years and hundreds of personal interviews with Women ranging in looks from passable 5s to verified Dimes, I estimate that the average looking Woman - say, between 5 and 6.5 on the Attractiveness Scale - get stepped to by guys on average, about 10 times a day, five days a week (and on the weekends, depending on whether the ladies actually go out or stay in). Think about that for a moment - that's no less than FIFTY GUYS hitting on a Woman a week, on average. Do the math:

10 guys a day

50 guys a week

200 guys a month

2400 guys a year

Yea. That's a lot of swinging dicks - and that number is not at all hard to pull off if you live in an even modest metro area (half a mil or more city residents), to say nothing of mega cities like NYC, Chitown or LA. 

AND, keep this in mind as well: the vast majority of these guys, will NOT have Game or any understanding of HSD or how the SMP works to boot. When I say "vast majority", I'm talking about easily 90%. Women are naturally attuned to "sort out" all the potential suitors in any given situation, due to the way in which they evolved over the tens of thousands of years out there on the African Savannah - SEX FOR WOMEN IS VERY, VERY RISKY. So, they NEED ways in which they can "vet" all the Men who may step to them. 

The Bitch Shield, is one such way, and it wouldn't exist if it didn't work.

Another, in our time, is Feminism. 

As Bill Clinton, John Edwards and a plethora of Gamesmen hither and yon have aptly demonstrated, these staunch "feminists" have no problems whatsoever with being nutted on stepped to by the RIGHT GUY, ie, if he has what we in the hood call "swag". Indeed, no Woman likes an Alpha Male MORE, than a card-carrying Feminist - you heard it here. They are among the easiest Targets to nail for those Men who have the Skills to pay the Bills. 

But if you're a hapless AFC - and events like the one that got this little kerfuffle started is a proverbial breeding ground for such dudes - then not only are you woefully ignorant of what I just noted above, but chances are that you'll actively fight to remain in the Matrix to boot, because the Pussy Delusion is just too strong. Yes, that's right - some of Game's biggest detractors aren't Women - they're Men - and often happen to come from the same social mileu that Ms. Watson is bemoaning on YouTube these days. 

Let's examine exactly what happened on the evening in question, what some have referred to now as "Elevatorgate", shall we?

Ms. Watson attends an atheist conference to make the case that its chockfull of sexists and misogynists

Ms. Watson, being rather thirsty after giving such a lengthy talk, decides to go drinking at the hotel bar into the wee hours of the morning

Ms. Watson then decides that there aren't any guys worth having between her thighs at the conference, and after presenting herself out there until 4AM, decides to call it a night

An Atheist AFC follows her onto the elevator, makes his pitch - and goes down in flames, badly. Here's why:

1. He did the equivalent of approaching a Woman from behind - a serious No-No in pickup. ALWAYS approach the Woman from the front, and just slightly off to one side or the other - never head-to-head if you can help it. Following a Woman onto an elevator, that late at night, alone, is a dead giveaway that he's a Lame. 

2. He attempted what we in the community would call Direct Game - just step to the gal - but the problem is that he didn't receive ANY IOIs (and in all likelihood wouldn't know what they were even if he did receive them, which, I think it's fair to say, Ms. Watson did NOT give), which is a key component of making Direct Game work. The great thing about Direct Game is that it's short and sweet, it gets right to the point and it's very efficient. The downsides of Direct Game, however, is that you can and quite often will get blown out of the set because you didn't have enough time to...

3. Build Comfort - and that's AFTER you've first built enough Attraction, something Lame Elevator Atheist Guy most assuredly didn't do (note how he came off with the "don't take this the wrong way" line. WRONG - Alphas don't apologize for having a dick and wanting to use it, and any Man who does is an INSTANT TURNOFF to a Woman - hence what we see with Ms. Watson); moreover, you can only isolate the Target AFTER you've built enough attraction and comfort. Atheist Elevator AFC attempted to skip all these steps and move right to the "isolation" phase, and the reason why is evident and Ms. Watson, though she doesn't consciously know it, reacted negatively to it all the same: because he was afraid of being rejected. Women NEED you to be confident. It's a sign that you are worthy of having between her thighs, that you can protect her from potential threats, and that you just don't give a you know what. When you do what this guy did, you Subcommunicate DLV - which is Gingle Tingle Death to the Human Female.

NOTE TO ALL PADAWANS: Direct Game works best when YOU ARE THE SHIT. If you have established yourself as a social center of the room, if you have been able to hold court, if you can be seen easily connecting to other people, particularly those who are "somebody", if you can demonstrate THAT OTHER WOMEN WANT TO BE WITH YOU, then and only then, does Direct Game have a snowball's chance in Hades of working and working well, because then a Woman seeing that WILL WANT YOU TO STEP TO HER, AND IN FACT, WILL "PRESENT" HERSELF TO YOU IN ORDER FOR YOU TO DO SO.

So, here's what Lame Atheist AFC Elevator Guy should have done in order to up his chances of blowing Ms. Watson's back out:

1. He should have reversed the social dynamic by placing himself into the center of the room in some way (since she was one of the featured speakers on the dais), displaying that he had all the traits of an Alpha Male: body language, smiling, PHYSICALLY CONNECTING WITH PEOPLE, grooming and hygiene is on-point, showing that he has Social Proof and that the relatively few Women in the round actually likes him (which is a proxy for them saying "I'd do him!" if the circumstances were right), demonstrating some degree of Preselection. 

2. Then, when Ms. Watson sees all this, he can then fly under the radar with a bit of Indirect Game, testing her to see if she throws off any IOIs - I like to run with three strong ones in a row - and if he got those, THEN he could move to the next phase: busting it up with more jokes, ESCALATING WITH KINO, subtle Phase Shifting, doing a bit of Compliance Testing to see how strong his Game is in relation to his Target's responses and so on.

3. He's now in the position to Calibrate a bit - does he/can he move in for the kill right then and there ("would you like to see my etchings?") or, does he slow it down a bit and move it to "Day Two"? In that this is a conference in a foreign land, chances are that she's gonna be good with you moving things along at a fairly swift clip; do your thing, boy. 

I 100% guarantee you that if Atheist AFC Guy did those things above, Ms. Watson would never have whined about how lame he was on YouTube. He might not have hit it either - there are no sure things in life - but his chances of doing so would have gone up considerably, and they both would have had a good time nevertheless. 

There's more that I could say about all this, but I trust my readers will get the point. With Women, especially those who tout themselves as rational and such, always, always, always, turn around what they're saying, and you will have the correct answer. This is why Prof. Dawkins, while he may be Aristotle reincarnated and is among the chief authorities on Evolution, is a babe in the woods when it comes to the Art of Love and the SCIENCE of Seduction, because his response to Ms. Watson is prima facie evidence if there ever was any that he is clueless when it comes to understanding what Women actually think, say and do - and WHY.

My job is done here. 

Now adjourn your asses...

Looks like my post struck a raw nerve for you, huh? ;) But yea, what you say is not only on-point, but not at all unusual, sad as it is to say in these days and times. If it's alright with you (please let me know, you know how to reach me) I'd like to riff a bit on what you said above in a post unto itself; but for now, suffice it to say that I completely get where you're coming from. More, much, more more, needs to be said about that topic than I have time to give it here.

Stay tuned...

Yea, when you really sitdown to think about it, it IS deep. And that's one of the many beauties of Game, once you really begin to understand it - you really do begin to see the "code" of the Matrix, so to speak.

That Human Sociosexual Dynamics is a powerful drug...


P.S.: I got your latest missive, LOL. Much appreciated!-and I think I've figured out a way to present it all in a very nice way. Stay tuned - and keep em comin' and keep up the great work!

Hey Man, thanks so much for the kudos and the interest! As for your question, I don't mean to be anticlimatic, but all I did was simply write, LOL. Didn't take any special classes or anything, I just did a lot of writing on my own - bought a computer, taught myself how to type, taught myself how to use the Internet, taught myself about blogging and social media, and just did the dang thing.

That's the "advice" I would give to you and anyone else reading along:

Just Do It.

Like Nike.

@Horace Fountaine,
Hi, and welcome to the O-Files! I just tried emailing you offlist and my email bounced back; I therefore have to assume that the email address you entered above isn't a real or "live" one.

So, I'll tell ya what I'm gonna do - if you have anything you wish to add per your request, by all means feel free to contact me at theobsidianfiles@hotmail.com. I'm all ears.

But what I'm NOT willing to do, is have you air anything out between you and you-know-who, here, on the blog. Not only is it woefully off-topic, it's also peddling in the kind of he-said/she-said stuff that I'd rather my blog not be a part of.

So, if you are who you say you are, and you're serious, I suppose I'll be getting a rather detailed offlist email from you very soon!

Thanks, and don't be a stranger!

Feminism as an evolved form of bitch shield. That's a mind blowing concept.

I know my following post is off topic But I love your blog and I want to start a blog myself, but I am not too confident in my writing skills. What can I do to improve my writing skills and my ability to communicate and argue my thoughts effectively

Your comment on sexual harassment was on point. I remember there was this one particular woman I worked with at this job. She had a major crush on my boss (who was married) and would often hang around our lab to help out.

Now, this one time, my boss was out on vacation, and I had a bunch of work to do. I decided to try my luck and ask her for help with the world, and nothing more. (Besides, I could see the crazy coming off of her. She could have looked like the second coming of Beyonce, and I would have ran.) The first and second times I asked, she kept for my boss. The third time, I joked "what, do you have a crush on my boss or something? He's not here right now!" The net result was me dealing with HR for a sexual harassment charge.

Luckily, I beat it with ease, but it still was a harrowing experience. Also, I try to avoid fishing off the company pier. There are too many other women other places to broach the net results of picking up on the job. After all, you don't know how crazy she might be. People hide themselves a lot at work, and by the time you're ready to splash out, your job may be on the line.

Hello Obsidian,

It has come to my attention that you and several other bloggers are being spammed by an individual known as "Bag Lady". Her and I dated some time ago and she dumped me. I've tried to reach her but she accuses me of stalking her. From reading over the archives of your blog, it looks as if you have a long history of dealing with her. I have information about her that I know that you among several others would be interested in. What do you say?
