Master of Mystery

Whilst on the tube homeward yesterday I snuck a peek at the tall, dark, handsome man's reading material sitting next to me and saw that he was reading something called The Mystery Method.

I did a quick scan and was surprised to see that it was actually a document to do with how to pick up women. And in my opinion, the advice wasn't that great.

Firstly, I didn't think it was that great that the 'target' was being referred to as a 'victim'. Since when did females who are being hit upon become 'victims'?!?

One line I glanced at said something like:

"Take the victim down from their friends, family and home. Once isolated they have no outside support and in their confusion are easily led astray."

Yep, I think the Mystery Method is definitely the way forward. It was developed by someone who is named Mystery. I bet he's a laugh a minute.

I wonder if The Mystery Method works with the gays?

that is fucking awful! it's bad enough that we as women have to feel like we're prey to some dickhead's fantasy but it's truly sickening that there's a book out on how to perpetuate that shit. sorry for all the profanity but that really pisses me off! and calling the women a "victim"? oh god! thank god there are resources out there to empower women to fight back against that garbage, my personal favorite being Hollaback NYC (www.hollabacknyc.com). they encourage women to take pictures of these jerks with camera phones and their pics are posted on the net. their motto is, and i so love it, "if you can't slap 'em, snap 'em!"

Um, sounds like a how-to for rape. Don't the boys know all they have to do is smile and flirt a bit? Dumb non-gays.

yep, J - isn't just? Don't apologise for the expletives! I completely agree with all you said, and the profanities!

Beth - don't worry: gays can be JUST as dumb as the non-gays.

I was thinking the same thing as Beth...Scary shit. (Can I curse here?) It's like a manual on how to rape....Scary...Did I already say that? I am speechless...

Dale said...

That's really fucked up. You're not just looking for the The Gay Way book are you Zig?

Jemima said...

Horrible!

Are you sure it wasn't an over the top, ironic swipe at people who casually view women as potential victims?

I suspect this chap wouldn't have the time or desire to write a rape manual if he had found a mutually satisfying love. I'm guessing the relationship that ensues from stalking a victim isn't the most meaningful or enjoyable.

The guy who wrote this sounds like a terrifying lunatic. I read a bit of the free chapter and he calls women targets. I won't say what he writes about because I don't want to give this asshole any free publicity, but it reads like the woman is a blow up doll who needs to be constantly manipulated to respond to the man's advances. Sick sick stuff.

How charming! Let's hope that the fools who take his advice to heart end up meeting strong women who play them at their own game and completely fuck them over. :)

Zig - I thought thats how gay may operated "preying on their Victims"...

ziggystardust73 said...

Life - I was scared sitting next to the guy!

Dale - I need some advice, am I looking in all the wrong places?

Jemima - I really WISH it was ironic, but sadly, it SO wasn't.

Emma - I know re. the label targets - I picked up on that as well (even in my post!) - what a tosser, huh??

Orange - any woman with a sense of pride would see right through this shit, so I think you're right!

Cutectguy - yep, a lot of gay men suck. And I don't mean in a good way. ;-)

TMM for gays goes like this...

"Wanna fuck?"

Then, there's a yes (usually), or no (not that often) response.

It's an international best seller!

Tom Gaylord said...

gays don't need advice on how to get bum bum action. they have mutually outrageous libidos.

ziggystardust73 said...

Steven - yes, the gays are so subtle, aren't they?

Tom - as usual, you know it.

DaBich said...

I think the public should find out where this azzmunch lives and go pelt his house with horse dung (cow will do) and rotten eggs ;)

the doctor said...

Think you may have spotted a serial killer in the making - creepy!

The ZenFo Pro said...

Works on gay people? Hell, that kind of garbage only works on women with IQs below 70 and so insecure they'd sleep with anybody willing to feed into about 500 different codependent triggers...

Lol...the victim? Creepy.

Saviour Onassis said...

Books, too, can be evil...

I think I lost my libido.

Um, ya that book will be entered into evidence in a trial one day.

Paul said...

This is awful! I've just read the biog of the guy and he really does seem scary, it's hard to thin k he gets a book deal for this rubbish!

And what a shame the tall, dark, handsome stranger was consuming this shit!!
