from best of craigslist:Advice to Young Men from an Old ManDate: 2007-02-15, 9:08AM PSTAdvice to Young Men from an Old Man1. Don’t pick on the weak. It’s immoral. Don’t antagonize the strong withoutcause, its stupid.2. Don’t hate women. It’s a waste of time3. Invest in yourself. Material things come to those that have self actualized.4. Get in a fistfight, even if you are going to lose.5. As a former Marine, take it from me. Don’t join the military, unless you wantto risk getting your balls blown off to secure other people’s economic orpolitical interests.6. If something has a direct benefit to an individual or a class of people, and atheoretical, abstract, or amorphous benefit to everybody else, realize that theproponent’s intentions are to benefit the former, not the latter, no matter whatbullshit they try to feed you.7. Don’t be a Republican. They are self-dealing crooks with no sense of honor orpatriotism to their fellow citizens. If you must be a Republican, don’t be a“conservative.” They are whining, bitching, complaining, simple-minded self-righteous idiots who think they’re perpetual victims. Listen to talk radio for awhile, you’ll see what I mean.8. Don’t take proffered advice without a critical analysis. 90% of all advice isintended to benefit the proponent, not the recipient. Actually, the number isprobably closer to 97%, but I don’t want to come off as cynical.9. You’ll spend your entire life listening to people tell you how much you owethem. You don’t owe the vast majority of people shit.10. Don’t undermine your fellow young men. Mentor the young men that come afteryou. Society recognizes that you have the potential to be the most power force insociety. It scares them. Society does not find young men sympathetic. They areafraid of you, both individually and collectively. Law enforcement’s primarypurpose is to suppress you.11. As a young man, you’re on your own. Society divides and conquers. Unlike womenwho have advocates looking out for them (NOW, Women’s Study Departments,government, non-profit organizations, political advocacy groups) almost no one islooking out for you.12. Young men provide the genius and muscle by which our society thrives. Look atthe Silicone Valley. By in large, it was not old men or women that created therevolution we live. Realize that society steals your contributions, secures itwith our intellectual property laws, and then takes credit and the rewards wherenone is due.13. Know that few people have your best interests at heart. Your mother does. Yourfather probably does (if he stuck around). Your siblings are on your side.Everybody else worries about themselves.14. Don’t be afraid to tell people to “Fuck off” when need be. It is an importantskill to acquire. As they say, speak your piece, even if your voice shakes.15. Acquire empathy, good interpersonal skills, and confidence. Learn to read bodylanguage and non-verbal communication. Don’t just concentrate on your vocationalor technical skills, or you’ll find your wife fucking somebody else.16. Keep fit.17. Don’t speak ill of your wife/girlfriend. Back her up against the world, evenif she’s wrong. She should know that you have her back. When she needs your help,give it. She should know that you’ll take her part.18. Don’t cheat on your wife/girlfriend. If you must cheat, don’t humiliate her.Don’t risk having your transgressions come back to her or her friends. Don’t do itwhere you live. Don’t do it with people in your social circle. Don’t shit in yourown back yard.
19. If your girlfriend doesn’t make you feel good about yourself and bring joy toyour life, fire her. That’s what girlfriends are for.20. Don’t bother with “emotional affairs.” They are just a vehicle for women toflirt and have someone make them feel good about themselves. That’s the part of arelationship they want. For you it is a lot of work and investment in time. Ifthey are having an emotional affair with you, they’re probably fucking someoneelse.21. Becoming a woman’s friend and confidant is not going to get you into anintimate relationship. If you haven’t gotten the girl within a reasonably shortperiod of time, chances are you won’t ever get her. She’ll end up confiding to youabout the sexual adventures she’s having with someone else.22. Have and nurture friendships with women.23. Realize that love is a numbers game. Guys fall in love easily. You’re going tosee some girl and feel like you’ll die if you don’t get her. If she rejects you,move on to the next one. It’s her loss.24. Don’t be an internet troll. Got out and live life. There is not a cadre ofbeautiful women advertising on Craigslist to have NSA sex with you. Beautifulwomen don’t need to advertise. The websites that advertise with attractive women’sphotos and claims of loneliness are baloney. All they want is your money and yourpersonal information so that they can market to you. The posts on Craigslist byyoung “women” seeking NSA sex, and asking for a picture are just a bunch of gaytroll pic collectors. This is especially true if the post uses common gay lexiconlike “hole” as in “fuck my hole” or seeks “masculine” men, or uses the word cock(except in the context of “Don’t send a cock shot.”) There are women onCraigslist. They are easily recognizable by their 2-5 paragraph postings. Most arein their 30's or older.25. When you become a man in full, know that people will get in your way. Peoplewho are attracted to you will somehow manage to step in your path. Gay guys willgive you “the look.” Old people will somehow stumble in front of you at the worsttime. Don’t get frustrated. Just step aside and go about your business. Know thatthese are passive aggressive methods to get you to acknowledge their existence.26. Don’t gay bash. Don’t mentally or physically abuse people because of who theyare, or how they present themselves. It’s none of your business to try tointimidate people into conformity.27. If your gay, admit it to yourself, your parents, your friends and society atlarge. Be prepared to get harassed. See rule 14. If someone threatens you orassaults you, call the cops. Have them arrested. You have no obligation to selfsacrifice because of who you are. As a gay person, you’ll have more social freedomthan straight men. Use it to protect yourself. Be prepared to get out of Dodge ifyour orientation makes your life unbearable. Move to San Francisco, New York,Atlanta, or New Orleans. You’ll find a welcoming community there.28. Don’t be a poser. Avoid being one of those dudes who puts a surfboard on topof their car, but never surfs, or a dude with a powder coated fixed gear bike anda messenger bag, but was never a messenger. Live the life. Earn your bona fides.29. Don’t believe the crap about the patriarchy. More women are accepted andattend college. More degrees are awarded to women than men. Women outlive men.More men commit suicide. Men are twice as likely to be victims of violence,including murder. If you consider sexual assaults in prisons, twice as many menare raped as women (society thinks prison rape is funny). The streets are litteredwith homeless men, sprinkled with a few homeless women. Statically, women arehappier than men. The myth that girls are being cheated by are educational systemis belied by the fact that schools are bastions of femininity, mostly run by andtaught by women. Girls outperform boys in school. It is the boys in school gettingfucked over, and prescribed ritalin for being boys. Real wages for men arefalling, while real wages for women are rising. Just because someone sayssomething enough times, doesn’t make it true. You have nothing to feel guiltyabout.30. Remember, 97% of all advice is worthless. Take what you can use, and trash the

I think #'s 1 and 4 contradict each other a bit.
