I've been thinking about how a lot of strong femenist types (especially in my women studies class ) would be shocked at some details of the art of PUA, but I truly believe that we are far less mysogynist than the general AFC population.
Only in hindsight I see that when I was an AFC I used to objectify women. I used to see a smokimg sexy girl and think "wow, she's a solid 9! I'd like to be in bed with her!" Period the end. Not approach her, not screen her, being AFC mean viewing women as sexual objects without knowing how to proceed.
Now when I see an HB9 I think "wow, she's beautiful. Let's see how her personality measures up." Let's throw up some negs and disqualifiers and screens and compliance tests ao that she shows us her value beyond her beauty - because that's what PUA is about - valuing beautiful women for more than their beauty.
So when I see that HB7,8,9,10 - whatever - I don't see her as a sexual object that I NEED to sleep with (because I know I could have her) it becomes all the more meaningful just to sit and talk with her, or to have an adventure or - if she measures up - to yes, take her home with me for a night of passion.
Venusian artists may get the reputation of "tricking" women into bed, but beneath the surface behaviors, we are far less harmful then every AFC in the friendzone
