Game, sluttiness, and the corresponding propositions test
August 13, 2014 § 81 Comments
My understanding of Game is that it is essentially the male equivalent of slutty behavior. Not every kind of male inchastity is Game; but Game is, in its essence, male inchastity.
That is all ground we’ve covered here before. But in order to cut through the nominalist BS as it resurfaces it is useful to have a concrete test to apply. I’ve mentioned this in passing before, but it is worth highlighting just to make sure the horse is dead.
Game is demonstrably the male equivalent of slutty behaviour because for every proposition about Game there is a corresponding proposition about slutty behavior, and vice versa. “Corresponding” doesn’t mean perfectly identical, because man-woman is a complementarian reality. Specific technique will differ. But in the context of man-woman complementarian reality Game and slutty behavior are homomorphic, and this can be demonstrated in general by word substitution into propositions about either.
Here are a few examples of true corresponding statements:
- “Not all use of X is to fornicate”.
- “X is the use of psychological knowledge to influence the behavior of the opposite sex.”
- “X may not be for healthy relationships, but it is possible for it to catalyze change in a relationship that is in trouble.”
- “X is sometimes the most efficient means for someone to solve a particular problem.”
- “X is based in truths about the real nature of men and women.”
… and here are a few of examples of false corresponding statements:
- “X is nothing but the use of psychological techniques to influence the behavior of the opposite sex.”
- “X is a box of morally neutral tools.”
- “X is nothing but learned charisma.”
