The tragedy of solipsism

Glenn Reynolds pities a woman who can't even attract the attention of a black man
Poor Lena. I think she hoped that, like a guy, she could parlay fame into sexual attractiveness. But that doesn’t work nearly as well for women, because men aren’t attracted to status to the degree that women are.
Some men don't understand that women are not men, and are not attracted to dedication and commitment. Some women don't understand that men are not attracted to money and fame.

Lena's comments show that she is acutely aware that her body positivity propaganda is just a hurculean effort at blowing smoke up her own gelatinous behind.

Another thing, Lena's is a plain woman, this is true. However she has a pleasant enough face if she didn't go out of her way to damage what natural looks she has. If she lost 40 lbs she wouldn't be a marshmallow. If she styled herself feminely she might never attract an upper tier man but she could do better than the gay beard I last heard she was living with. She embraces her ugliness out of spite toward the objective standards that remain't unreachable to her.

Dindus like their mud sharks "think and juicy", not "thick and mushy."

Lena's also covered in tattoos. What guy doesn't want to date the special girl who has been drawing on herself with permanent marker?

Dexter said...

It's always amusing when women think they need to acquire the attributes they find attractive in a man: confidence, dominance, status, education, etc.

And then they're puzzled when men don't care about that stuff.

"Some"? Most.

Happy Housewife said...

She was dressed in a tuxedo with huge glasses and ugly hair. And she has the gall to complain that he didn't see her as a woman?

Michael Maier said...

Fat, ugly white skank ignored by a black man... and she's mad?

Sounds like she believes the stereotypes too. Damned racist bitch.

bob k. mando said...

if a woman doesn't want to be treated like a marshmallow, she should probably try to not look like a marshmallow.

"and it was so amazing because it was like he looked at me and he determined I was not the shape of a woman by his standards. He was like, “That’s a marshmallow. That’s a child. That’s a dog.” It wasn't mean—he just seemed confused."

how DARE a man have standards? the scandal of it all!

The shame. TMZ has the full story. It isn't pretty.

Face it--Dunham looks like she was eaten by a wolf and then shit down a cliff.

Mooga Booga said...

Oh, that male gaze. Can't live with it, can't live without it.

S. Misanthrope said...

I'm curious why so many men online are rushing to her defense. If status isn't her appeal, what is? What inspires these white knights?

Leo Littlebook in Shenzhen said...

The "dun ham" fits, but "lean" is just unfortunate.

An Army joke from my days: A gawky young Private sees two female officers walk by, a Major and a 2LT. Instead of saluting them, he wolf-whistles as they walk by. Furious, the female Major storms up to him, snaps him to attention, and gives him a stern tongue-lashing about military protocol and equal opportunity for women in the military. Sheepishly, the Private tries to explain himself: "but ma'am, I wasn't whistling at you, I was whistling at the Lieutenant..."

ha ha. Now if Lena had read Vox Day she'd have known not to apologise. She's doomed now.

The link to the TMZ article:

Would you have given her a second glance when she looked like that, other than to admire the horror of it all, I mean.

Heh, the amount of times I see "I'm a strong, independent woman", along with a load of other male traits, trying to be used positively.

Just makes me think when has ANY man listed those particular qualities first when asked what he wants in a woman? They project so much.

This is only going to get worse. What happens when Elon Musk designs a fully-functional "sexbot" that looks like Giselle Bundchen and retails for $1500?
.
Or a sexbot that looks like Brad Pitt?
.
What happens when free online programs can interact with lonely women verbally. Can diagnose their mental pathologies accurately and can talk to them FOR HOURS about their problems - for FREE?
.
Traditionally sex, marriage and child-bearing have been inextricably linked - this paradigm is failing in a number of different ways. I don't think it's under attack - it's just failing.
.
Women don't simply need men to support them financially and emotionally, they need them to beget children and to help raise them. Nothing is as sad as a forty-year old divorced career woman without children. That is why illegitimacy is at 75% in the black community.
.
Maybe the steps in the old paradigm need to be broken down and addressed individually? Maybe young girls in high school should be provided the opportunity to specialize in "child rearing". Maybe girls should be paid by the state for having children when they are young - then offered the opportunity to go to college when they are thirty (a bit like the GI bill).
.
The state is already doing this now. But maybe they could be induced to pay MORE for children with higher IQs - in other words children who will grow up to be taxpayers rather than taxeaters?

ChickenChicken Sweep said...

"The state is already doing this" because an atomized, dependent population is the easiest to manipulate and control.

And "maybe they could be induced to pay MORE for children with higher IQs"? Even assuming such a blatant appeal to eugenics is feasible, the better idea is to get the state out of the equation and stop their subsidizing of bad decisions, not to give them further scope for fucking up our lives with moronic "social engineering".

LonestarWhacko said...

Oh the lament of the porcine feminist! Who cares? And it's going to get worse.....just imagine the porker being mugged in the open. Young men watching go.....nah, not me. And the mugger goes ahead and kills her. Who will miss the swine?

The only thing women hate more than being objectified by men is not being objectified by men.

(((Helen Rosner))) writes for a food site called Eater, and she absolutely resents how her fabulous fatness makes her repellent to men:

Ok I know we all hate Lena Dunham now (?) but this is EXACTLY how so. many. men. interact with non-thin-woman me
"Do I want to fuck it?" And they're like nope, & then I either don't exist, or I get treated like a hybrid unwanted child/mom
First of all, it really takes a toll on me. Second of all, you're wrong, you should definitely want to fuck me, I'm fantastic.
I've tried to explain to people before how for many men, there are two categories of women: fuckables, and invisibles
And the invisibles aren't women. They're just … lumps. Talking lumps who maybe you befriend.
So much of the pain of being a woman isn't the male gaze; it's building yourself into something the male will even deign to gaze upon at all


Much hurt, there. She can't bear to face reality. How does she know she's so awesome in bed? Years of self pleasure, I guess?

The cries of racism at Lena Dunham make me joyous. She doesn't have an average woman's body. She's fat, and does no favors to herself with her sartorial choices, anywhere, any time.

Like all other behaviors, sinful or merely awkward and socially unacceptable, the Left just wants to do what they want, no consequences or judgment. Children.

Associating a woman like (((THAT))) with any kind of food is just plain disgusting.

As for her not being able to get laid, given that there are thirsty lower-order men out there with sub-floor standards who would fuck Godzilla if given the opportunity, I have to believe that the only thing more repulsive than this woman's body must be her (((attitude))).

modsquad said...

Now that she's apologized, shouldn't we demand she resign from something?

mts1 said...

Let's see: a mannish looking obese woman goes to a social function in a man's tuxedo with not even shoulder length hair. She expects a black man to hit on her because, after all, all black men will bang anything that moves, not that she's racist in her assessment, nosiree. He does not, and she is offended.

The man looks at the mannish obese woman with a really short haircut, wearing a man's tuxedo. He thinks she's a lesbian, and the butch one at that, and would rather jump into a brier bush than try to tackle that when there's all sorts of straight women at this social function gala thing. What man looks at Paula Poundstone and thinks, "Oh Baby?" What man looks at Lea DelLaria in a tux and flat top crewcut (look THAT one up, ouch) and gets aroused?

Women get angry when you look at their boobs when they wear a baby-tee 2 sizes too small with no bra and cut down the front, then get angry when they do their best to uglify themselves, succeed, and you don't look.

Odell Beckham, Jr. Nominee for p.i.g. (poor innocent guy) of the week. Just found out that to a woman, he wrong already, she just has to figure out why first.

ace said...

"Or a sexbot that looks like Brad Pitt?"

Not nearly as effective, obviously, unless the sexbot also commands some amount of status.

In a way one has to admire women. They actually have to engage their minds to be attracted. All men need is a totem, and it doesn't even need to be particularly good.

The envy couldn't run deeper.

The unnoticed circumstance is that she only seeks the eyes of men she "sees" and ignores the invisible men around her.

There are men who would be with her. However, she has "status" and is "strong, independent," which means she should get a higher quality man than a land-manatee should deserve.

She doesn't get her own projection in the scenario.

To be fair to Dunham, black men do seem to be attracted to especially fugly mudsharks. In this, Dunham is to be congratulated, and perhaps even held in esteem by the scientific community: she has just discovered the first level below the "white bitch attraction floor" for black men.

@Amy
Hah. That is exactly how we see things.

But quite apart from that is how these landwhales -- just like fags, trannies and other freaks -- change a choice, in this case eating too much and getting fat, into an identity, and subsequently demand that people respect that identity.

Nowhere does she consider that maybe she shouldn't eat so much, and then she'd gain more male attention.

Call me naive, but where did this weird and supremely stupid idea of deciding to do something sinful and degrading, and then identifying with it, come from?

@S. Misanthrope
Behold another manifestation of the Gamma male, which is essentially the male version of those fat feminists.

In short, they're defective.
