This has been my only big problem with Roosh V. since Day 1
For a guy who presents himself as a kind of “Tony Robbins of pussy,” and who of late also has a lot of ok stuff to say about masculinity/gender roles and, yeah, traditional values — he always read “brokeass scrub” to me.
This despite the undeniable fact that he’s intelligent, ruthless, and can talk his ass off — and therefore could be a six-figure, commission-only salesman or stockbroker or something if he even half tried.
I feel the same way about certain “copywriting gurus” and “experts on the free market” whose lives turn out to be chaotic and otherwise “failure to launch”-y. They inevitably try to hide this hot mess under faux-breezy, no-fucks-given prose, but at this point I’m really good at seeing past that.
