I wonder if I should make a post about current popular romance novels (most often written by women, and targeted toward heterosexual women). I'm sure plenty of guys are familiar with the unrealistic looking beefcake of a man that's typically on the cover of these romance novels but fewer seem to be aware of what else these male characters are like.

For example, a popular subgenre right now is when the hawt billionaire man (vineyard master, cattle rancher estate, etc.) decides what he wants more in his life than anything is a woman who already has kids. He really wants to be a loving step-dad and give this single mother the treatment she deserves.

Gee, I wonder what the targeted demographic is for that?

The female power fantasy is being "an average girl" that gets praised just for being herself and having things her way

Twilight, and 50 Shades, were such massive names that you literally couldn't escape them for years and they were daily conversation pieces for women. Even worse, 50 Shades, literal pornography, gained such cultural prominence it wasn't uncommon to hear middle schoolers talking about it.

And the entire story is intentionally bland and blank girl becomes the object of obsession from incredibly powerful and/rich men and are the most important person in the world.

50 shades of gray started as a Twilight fanfic called "master of the universe"

Adamrises 10 points ago +10 / -0

I know, that's why I mentioned it as a subsidiary. The "blank" main character is technically the same person as it was written.

Wasn't there s study done today showed that top romance novels for women almost always include billionaire, pirate, vampire, or werewolf?

Something about a "dangerous" man that can be "tamed" is about all I could remember.

That and success and status, hence billionaire being in the list

Sounds similiar to what Peterson said about top searches for women on Pornhub. The top searches were: Vampire, Werewolf, Pirate, Billionaire and Surgeon.

SupremeReader 5 points ago +5 / -0

With romance covers I've seen also lots of Injuns, cowboys, also Scottish Highlanders for some reason.

Vampire, Werewolf, Pirate, Billionaire and Surgeon.

Sounds like the cast of Guilty Gear minus the billionaire and werewolf.

I'm not sure if I'd want you to subject yourself to such garbage just to tell us all about it.

I'm also not sure it'd be worth it just for internet points.

Still, if you want that, Amazon Prime Kindle or whatever they call it was full of them. At least you wouldn't have to buy them.

Daucus9 21 points ago +21 / -0

Nah, I just worked as a book shelver over the summer and also handled some warehouse orders.

Did you know there's a large subgenre of Amish romance? To the point that there's a sub-subgenre of America SPACE romance?

It is.....amazing, absolutely astounding, what a gulf there is between what the SJWs claim that all women want, and what women are actually wanting. And it's this gulf where [insert pop culture item here enjoyed by men] go to die. Because you can take James Bond or Charlie's Angels or Star Trek or whatever the fuck and dress it up in woke circus clown shit and it won't attract the female audience in droves.

Nah, they'd rather have their Twilight shit and 50 Shades of Grey or whatever the hell else. They'd rather read some story about a woman getting kidnapped by an insane billionaire until she loves him than an "empowering" sterile, sexless Captain Marvel story.

And I'm not necessarily saying that women actually want this to happen to them in real life. But that's the fantasy they enjoy. But the SJWs claim it's terrible and harmful for men to enjoy fantasies.

Holy shit. Any man with means would be like “Na I’m good, that’s your problem.”

It's funny that the narrative is men are conditioned to have unrealistic expectations when that long ago deleted okcupid survey blog show men have on average rate women on a picture perfect bell curve and women on average rate 80% of men below average. Projection.

Adamrises 12 points ago +12 / -0

You don't need the OKCupid study.

Actual Psychology Studies going back decades confirmed that long ago. The rough consensus is that when you ask women the average man is around a 4/10, while men rate the average woman around a 7-8/10.

They also confirmed the obvious that if you put a good job (with no other info besides their picture) under a guy, women rate his physical appearance higher as well as the opposite with a bad job. While with men the job had minimal if any change.

Feminists always project.

It’s funny because it’s always the feminists online talking openly about killing (white) men and chemically castrating young men who don’t meet their standards.

Pointing out double standards is a waste of time though. There isn’t really anything to be done at this point. Far too many men are fat weak pussies. This train has no stops.

Are you trying to tell me the waistline of a human body isn't above the navel!?

They don't want to metaphorically pick them up because they literally can't pick them up.

Yep. And he might bang the clown girl on the left...if she put a paper bag over her head.

She almost reminds me of Pam from Archer.

I kinda like Pam from Archer, and she is a great lay

TheImpossible1 [S] 15 points ago +15 / -0

I hate getting ads for these shitty phone games. It's so clear they're targeted to women and it makes me physically ill seeing the hypocrisy of it all.

CarmenOfSandiego 13 points ago +13 / -0

Remember when post wall Karens were complaining Jason Mamoa got fat/a dad bod after he stopped almost killing himself for the Aquaman film?

This was the pic in question for those wondering just how "fat" he got: https://i.imgur.com/4GSC1NP.jpg

As a currently fat man that is working on dropping those kiloes. I could do with a "fat" body like that...

Root your phone and install a system wide adblocker. No reason to look at that shit when you don't have to.

big breasts are absolutely realistic and i can think of plenty of women who have milkers the size of their heads, flat women stay seething

I think this is a meme.

I've been seeing the extremely exaggerated number of abs around.

TheImpossible1 [S] 5 points ago +6 / -1

If it's a meme, someone paid to make it an ad for some reason.

ScutFarkus -14 points ago +1 / -15

It was you. To feign victimhood. From the evil women.

TheImpossible1 [S] 10 points ago +10 / -0

Yes, I paid money to make a shitpost.

Of course.

ScutFarkus -15 points ago +1 / -16

It’s painfully clear that you either:

  1. Have a violent contempt and distain for women.

  2. Are paid to be here and the views you express are representative of an organization and aren’t necessarily your own.

Now, I’m inclined to believe the former, but I’ll leave room for my own error seeing as how our interactions are one dimensional.

Based on the identity you’ve created here, there really isn’t room for a third option.

Either of those options are unhinged enough to do the thing I jokingly suggested, by the way.

Adamrises 8 points ago +8 / -0

I mean, there is a third option you aren't considering.

His rhetoric isn't tolerated on literally any other platform, so he is getting all his talking out in the one place he can get away with it. The same reason why "specialized bigotry" forums like Stormfront and formerly coontown seem so obsessed and loud. They literally cannot speak their thoughts on it anywhere else and so they vomit all of it in one spot.

ScutFarkus -8 points ago +1 / -9

Sure. No I completely agree. And that is just a symptom of my first point.

ShadistIsACuck 5 points ago +6 / -1

You're retarded. Look at some mobile game ads there is plenty of this shit.

Ignoring the utter body horror that is his torso, but judging by his fawxhawk-manbun hairstyle and those thick-rimmed glasses...that guy is gay. Tremendously so. The kind that dresses up in leather and shakes his assless chaps on stage for money from other gays.

Sorry (not sorry), ladies, but you're staying single. He doesn't even need to take you on as his beard anymore.

I don't know. Is this targeted to women? This seems like the cover for a game about a guy having women check him out at the beach.

The dude's serratus muscles extend down to his fucking pelvis rofl.

You can exaggerate muscularity into the stratosphere and do it well, but this is just straight up "I am too lazy to learn where muscles go"

TheImpossible1 [S] 4 points ago +6 / -2

So you have 19 abs?

You know that's not humanly possible, right?

I'm perfectly fit, I just can't resist an opportunity to mock the hypocrisy of our so called better halves.
