there's definitely a lot of guys nowadays who did not just have to start from zero, but were actually sabotaged with shitty advice from their mothers>always be polite and friendly
yeah, that does not work. men are expected to be the active part in society, you need a minimum of aggression to get any attention at all, if you are just politely waiting for it to be your turn you'll never get anything. you have to take it>violence is not an option, tell the authorities!
the authorities don't give a shit because you are male and therefore expendable. either you help yourself or no one does.
and so on and so forth. they first have to unlearn all that shit again, and often that requires a rude awakening which might not come all that soon.
