I had no car until I was 51. No license until age 37. I had sex thousands of times with about 30 women before I got my license—none of whom were escorts. Not saying this to brag….only saying this to seek to disprove all this Red Pill crap. I’m a thoroughly beta man. This I find hard to believe. Are...

When I was little I wanted to be a boy.

In my teens I might have identified as "nonbinary" if that term were around back then. I settled for thinking of myself as a gender-nonconforming woman, which is how I still think of myself.

I am 100% a deep, intellectual and philosophical thinker. Likewise. Throughout my adult life I've thought of myself as "a deep thinker but not a quick thinker." I suspect that people with a strong intellectual orientation are much more common among autistic people than among the general p...

There do exist some corporations with special hiring programs for autistic people. So far, such programs tend to be primarily for tech workers, because it has become well-known that many (though by no means all) autistic people are able to excel at tech. (See my list of Resources for autistic tech j...

Wouldnt a smarter move be to just campaign to ban shocking the kids and just change the management & name rather than close down a mental health service facility that`s needed? The proposed bill would not close the JRC down directly. It would just refuse to pay for treatment there as long as th...

Basically women DON'T need any dating app, Facebook/Social media is more than enough to get attention from males in a more controlled way, they just need to block the unwanted attention. "Getting attention from males" and getting the kind of attention that is even remotely acceptable are ...

But most women are just not interested in hookups, which is one of the reasons why these venues are predominantly male in the first place. So, lots of women have difficulty finding men who are genuinely interested in a potential longterm relationship with them. Some women don't want "A Long Te...

After all, all academic event above elementary school, including college events, require coming with a date to look normal. All academic events? Or just proms and other dance events? I recall plenty of college student club events where the majority of people did not show up with dates. Also, at my ...

Well, as I learned from the Red Pill, even the most unattractive women have nearly limitless options. Unattractive men, especially carless unattractive men, do not. If I only knew in 2002 what I know in 2022. That is simply not true, except maybe on the more hookup-oriented dating apps, other hooku...

Besides brilliant.org, another online educational resource you might want to look into is Khan Academy. You might want to consider using both, for a more thorough learning experience.

It seems highly unlikely to me that Linda Sarsour would have any strong ties with Farrakhan. Some of her values are quite incompatible with his, such as her support for LGBTQ+ rights and various feminist causes. Argument from incredulity, also known as argument from personal incredulity, appeal to ...

All of the world's most successful economies have been mixed economies, neither purely socialist nor purely capitalist/free-market.

Neither pure capitalism/free-market nor any attempts at pure socialism seem to have worked well.

So to me the question is: What is the best mixture?

It was an IT course. I didn't have a specific career path in mind. I saw a career counsellor who recommended I take that course based on my answers to the tests she gave me. I didn't hate the course, but I didn't love it. I don't think I'm very self-sufficient when it comes to getting unfamiliar ta...

I'd thought about possibly doing something in IT. [...] I've considered leveraging my way with words and maybe trying to get into marketing, but I'm just not sure. I've considered doing something related to politics, but I wouldn't have a clue what. Something that might combine all of the above: a ...
