Not making an excuse for it, as I was one of these guys who learned these techniques. Back when slutty behavior was considered “empowering” and you weren’t charged with assault for not calling her again. I was a dumb horny guy who believed what women were trying to make themselves believe.From my personal experience, it's been quite a journey going through this transition. I was immersed in RSD culture for 4 years before I found Roosh's PUA/red pilled stuff and then followed suit by turning to Christ. I used to praise these clowns masquerading as self-help gurus while all they were doing was leading me down a deeper path into sin. It's sad to see young men today still eating up their new-aged snake oil.
So I can see how guys from this younger generation fall into it. The constant swiping through yoga pants pics, the mainstreaming of insulting one’s manhood (incel), modern day abnormal interactions with women (I won’t even talk to a female in her 20s unless I’m being paid) — the PUA way seems like a natural solution for them.
But the pendulum is swinging thankfully
