Bill Greathouse, founder of the TFL movement, just made a good video explaining this:
This video got me doing some thinking, and it seems he is totally right. I did some brief google searches on PUA, which I have not done in quite a few years, just to see what was out there. It seems that the number of PUA gurus has diminished 10-fold since about 2008. A few of the same scumbags, such as RSD are still out there, but they are not getting anywhere near the business they used to. The reason for this, I believe, is there is much more information out there about how PUA is a fraud. I believe that this is the reason why MGTOW(MSTOW?) has been growing exponentially the past few years. Bill brought up a great point on how MGTOW is suffering from infighting and is cult like, just like the PUA movement(a total cult). I have no doubt that incels who, a few years ago, would have joined PUA, and failed miserably at it, are now becoming MGTOW. The end result is the same, those incels would have still been incels, PUA or not. At least with MGTOW, they are not wasting thousands of dollars on BS seminars/workshops, and all the stupid tricks to try and pick up women by feeding their narcissism and entitlement. These guys are just going out and hiring hookers, dating women just for sex(if they are not incel), or just dropping out entirely, which despite what the cunt or its nagina says, will harm women if men in vast numbers are behaving like this, whether they are sent their own way or not. Nobody is making any money on MGTOW unlike with PUA. MGTOW are trying to spread word on the true nature of women, which is great, because it will end up harming women vs validating and pedestalizing them like PUA does.
