Send in the clown

I have a few more or less random disjointed thoughts to wrap things up (for now — you know how blogging can be) on the subject of Game.
Something akin to Godwin’s Rule applies to discussions of Game. As debate over Game proceeds the probability of some Christian Game proponent comparing PUA to the Greek philosophers, whose thought was selectively incorporated into Christianity by some of the greatest saints in history, approaches one. This suggests to me that I am right that the spirit of Game inherently exalts perversion and perverts.
Dalrock is fond of suggesting (when he isn’t suggesting that I said something I didn’t) that if a woman isn’t looking for casual sex, she doesn’t really need to know how to spot a player. It is an excellent point worth repeating — something for women to keep in mind more than men, really. But perhaps it is also true, complementarily, for men: if you aren’t looking for casual sex with a slut, you don’t need to know how to use PUA “tools” (to the extent that Game is well defined at all) to make yourself attractive to sluts. And if you are using Game to attract a woman as part of your quest for a wife, chances are you are going to attract a woman like that. As frustrating as it sounds, the wise (and even Biblical) answer is that it is better never to marry in the first place. I’ll let you find the Scriptural references yourself, as I am blogging from a smartphone.
That does leave men who happen to be married to sluts (as a matter of personal history, conversion after marriage, etc) in a bit of a conundrum, I suppose. But it is far from clear that Game is the answer to that situation rather than just a temptation to go find a floozy. The man who goes all Dread Game (in the sense of proving that other women find him attractive) on his wife is like the woman trolling for casual sex: their rationalization hamsters may not admit what they are doing, but we all know what they are doing.
For most of human history the practical (for both men and women) answer to the question “what turns women on sexually” was “who cares?” It is only in the context of the modern coddled-empowered strongindependent feminist that the question even becomes practically relevant. It is therefore ironic but not surprising that modern men obsessing over what turns women on has the effect of turning them off.
And finally, there is certainly no problem with men giving each other advice about women. Because men have adopted liberalism and destroyed all non-sociopathic hierarchy, the “who cares?” practical answer above might not apply to your particular situation, if your life has been cozy and trouble-free enough that tingles actually sit somewhere high on your legitimate priority list.
But the Game which can be Christianized is not true Game. Game is the lying and manipulation of perverts in a quest for casual sex with other perverts. That is its essence.
