Guy’s do “Lunch”

guys_do_lunch_01
Maybe it’s just me, but when someone is pitching a new dot-com business, I expect a certain level of, let’s call it “internet savvy”. What I do not expect is someone who calls Kickstarter “Kick starter dot com” in the tone of voice you might use when you’re describing some new idea you want your three year old to think about.

I also expect enough technological competence to make sure the camera is level before you start recording. (And maybe turn on a light or something?)

And finally, while I admit I don’t know the first thing about the dating scene for affluent gay men, I would very much not expect the fact that a man has been in a “rock solid” relationship for 18 years to be used to support the idea that he needs a dating service.

But all my expectations were shattered by this cringe-worthy video!

Slick Serpents

Slick Serpants and Bad Apples
 The Christian Women’s Guide on why they must avoid romantic relationships with unsaved men, and what they should look for in a man

If there’s one thing a modern woman loves, it’s a bald white man telling her who she should and shouldn’t date.

You can click the image up top to see the project page and read his long description, including a summary of every chapter of the book, but I think this is a nice summarizing thought :
 I am confident that the message of this book will do wonders to encourage single Christian women to make better decisions for their lives regarding relationships and marriage. It will also help expose Satan’s plan for Christian women, as well as for the family. With your help, we can make this book happen, and this time, in a way that will be more acceptable to women. Please pledge whatever you can to help make this book a reality.

Still, I wonder what’s got this guy so hot and bothered about how women choose their lovers? Perhaps his Facebook account will reveal a clue!

Single

Well, that’s what I expected, but it doesn’t really indicate anything. Let’s take a look at his Twitter. Huh. There’s some racism here, both subtle and overt, but I think this is probably a good clue :


If that’s the reaction he’s getting from ladies, it’s no wonder he’s not getting his serpent slick.

“The Bible of Seduction”

You may recall a couple of weeks ago there was much todo about a “dating advice book” called “Above the Game“. I won’t rehash it here, but very briefly, there was a very skeazy dating advice book on Kickstarter. There was a huge backlash against it on Twitter and elsewhere. Kickstarter allowed the project, but afterwards hid the names of everyone who purchased it, and then finally added a rule against future dating advice book projects.

So that must be why this project is on IndieGoGo :
 The Bible of Seduction  There is nothing out there like this, its going to be around 600-800 page of pure knowledge of Seduction.
Perhaps wisely, this project, which I think we can safely call a “Copy-cat project”, doesn’t go into much detail about what will be in the 800-page three-book set, but it does give chapter titles, including :

Book-2 Chapter-1: Jerk versus the Nice Guy

Ten bucks says he tells you to be the jerk!

Book-3 Chapter-2. Disrespect

I can’t imagine why this would be a problem!

And my personal favorite :

Book-1 Chapter-1: Educational Knowledge

You know, as opposed to all that knowledge you can’t learn from.

But here’s what really caught my eye :
seduction_02

This is the only reward level in the project.

  1. that “Highest funder gets money back” deal, isn’t that basically gambling? Is that even legal?
  2. 0 out of 1 claimed“?!? Someone clearly doesn’t understand how this is supposed to work.
  3. August 2013? This project doesn’t end until mid-August. There’s no way he’s printing and shipping out books that quickly!

Oh wait. What books?

Maybe this guy isn’t as dumb as I thought.

At no point does he promise to send a book to any contributors.

Sneaky.
