Re: I know just from looking at this picture that the right one had the best time of his life in high school while the left one rotted away. JFL. Genetics is literally your life. You can see it in their eyes.
What is the harm in trying to make someone feel better
Oh sweet summer child, the cope that incels simply don't work hard is one that helps sustain the illusion of a fair and just world at its' very core, but the sad truth is that, while some of us can make something good out of our lives despite the enormous disadvantages in happiness and social life that come from being ugly and short, due to other things we've got going. There's some less fortunate ones that after years at the gym, after so many self improvement books, so much effort, realize the truth, that genetics has no mercy, and at the whim of bad luck, can create someone who had no chance, doomed from birth, due to a combo of lacking enough inherent looks, height, smarts and talents to succeed. With no respect from other men, no affection from women and no solaces in life, they succumb to the numbness and rope.
In short, CRISPR please come soon.
Describe you as a human yes, but a being, no
Listen. The end game of every organism ever created is to reproduce and to further spread it's genetic material. There are no exceptions, so it counts for us humans too. It's just the way life works. If selection for some reason wasn't a thing, we'd still be microbes swimming around in the ocean.
The genetic material you carry is therefore absolutely essential to this process. If your genes are good, you get to pass them on. If they aren't, you don't. Now, how this selection manifests itself in our societies has become very complex (we humans are by far the most intelligent species around), so it's not as readily apparent as with some wild animals, but the point is that it's still there.
Therefore, for our society to survive your genes LITERALLY have to define you. If women selected for something irrational like kindness or compassion in men instead of the ability to protect offspring, we would have gone extinct in a couple of generations.
Now, the problem, and the raison d'etre for this sub is the fact that the modern dating landscape has shifted irrecoverably in favor of women. Some 50 years ago, a 5/10 woman would have gotten a 5/10 man. Today, for various reasons, average women can easily shoot WAY above their league, leaving subpar men (read: this sub) in the dust.
