Gaslighting Revisited


WhiteGuy wrote,

Followed by her spam texting (damn lawyers are WORDY!) trying to get me back for two days (over 100 texts!). And then a couple of attempts to suck me back in like nothing happened.

Monday she even sent a non-apology apology (amazing for a woman lawyer really) wanting to try again…

I replied to this one, told her, thanks but I’m moving on and blocked her.

I realized I got sucked into trying to ‘fix’ her problems, and a lot of them were eerily like Crazy’s problems.

As part of this package of attempts by the Russian lawyer was some gaslighting.   She was acting as if nothing had happened.  In reality, it did happen.  My ex had habit of rewriting history, but being of a disciplined mind it was mostly ineffective.  The question is, do women even realize that they are gaslighting?  Or do the emotions (and/or craziness) get the best of them such they disgorge a reality that clearly wasn’t?

As for the fellas, perhaps when they gaslight it is a deliberate act.  They realize that they are doing it.  Often they have honed the technique.

So is this somewhat simple model too simple?   How close is it to being accurate?

Exit question:  What is the path to craziness?

    The 83 ballots, each unused, were addressed to different people, all supposedly living in his elderly neighbor’s two-bedroom apartment.

    In a statement, the office of the Registrar said, “We are carefully reviewing our records and gathering information to fully identify what took place. Our preliminary assessment is that this appears to be an isolated situation related to a system error that occurred causing duplicate ballots to be issued to an address entered for a single voter. We are working directly with the system vendor to ensure the issue is addressed and to identify…

    I’ll translate the Registrar’s reply to the common tongue, “Oh, fuck they found out … I mean, uh, nothing to see here. Move along, move along. All is well.”

    Women cannot evaluate objective reality as well as men can. That, alongside looking for some Alpha seed, is why they are terrible at anything that needs solid, objective analysis. They rewrite reality according to their feelings. Rape accusations are mostly just women feeling that sex should not have happened and was wrong, and reevaluating the sexual encounter in that light. Gaslighting, along that line, is when your objective memory of the facts does not match her subjective emotional memory.

    Naturally, a woman trying to gaslight a man isn’t making any conscious decision to that end. She rewrote the memory of how things went to rationalize her emotional state, and is confused and upset when you act like thats not what happened. From her perspective, she is remembering things as they happened, and you are the one distorting what went on.

    Well no exit BJ for me. But there were a number of them during our brief encounter, and at her bill rate, I figure they were $200 BJ’s. I was really surprised at quality and enthusiasm, but she’d never been with a Tzar before, and there is that.

    Now that I’ve got a clearer head, here are some more of my thoughts:

    Motorcycles really are ‘panty wetters’, and the ponds I fish in, not having ink and a motorcycle are rare and ‘exciting’.

    If you’ve spent time in the gym, i.e. your biceps are at least as big as your calves, then vests can also stir those women up in their ‘feelz’.

    I’ve done this enough times to safely report lifting any woman up, carrying her to the bedroom and tossing her ass on the bed makes her ridiculously pliable, and even a little extra flexible. Disclaimer, be sure to do enough squats and presses to be able to do this without pulling a muscle.

    In one of her ‘rants’ via text, she told me I was not a serious man, and was ‘very safe’ and that I could play with anyone, even married women if I wanted to, so I should quit being coy with her! LOL

    Amazing how when a woman tells you “you can do what ever you want to me”, multiple times in the bedroom, even super rational whiteguy drops about 40 IQ points…

    She could have been a plate, that buys me gifts which would have made for some interwebz legends.

    I actually feel bad for her, she is so buttoned up at work and had NO man with any frame in her life (including her childhood in Moscow, big surprise there), that she is out of control emotionally, and she knows it but doesn’t want to do the work of fixing herself. She more than once commented that she needed a ‘Rock’ in her life.

    Russian women are not for the faint of heart, or those not willing to ‘raise the HARD pimp hand’. If mine was a good representative sample, they need a daily dose of slap down. Too much work.

    Had she been 26, instead of 46, it might have been worth trying to train her, but the woman had way too much manufactured drama in her life. Had a “Karen” haircut and an extra 20-30lbs on her ass from poor eating habits.

    –Not worth it.

    I don’t feel bad about our brief encounter, I left her better than I found her, she will always have her month with “the Tzar”. She got to spend time with a man with a rock hard frame, with actual discipline in his life to remember and strive for. (bit of a joke there, she’s a woman after all).

    One more example, she sent me, unsolicited, a picture of her with no pants on, just her panties and shirt around 9pm on a work night. Now this is a ‘good girl’ who doesn’t kiss on the first date, yep, ‘sphere theory confirmed’. What she probably didn’t expect was me to send her a thumbs up emoji, with one word ‘cute’, and then I went to sleep. Could I have worked her up to a nude that evening, oh yeah. Did I care, nope, tired so I went to bed. LOL.

    Horseman and TSK are both on to something, I think women by their nature have to warp their memories to match their feelings, and it spills out as gas lighting. The dangerous ones are those that are broken and have such extreme emotions that they have to “ACTIVELY” try to change those around them to match what their neuroses are telling them.

    Ton, you have been doing the Lord’s work for sure brother, don’t leave yet.

    Most of them appear to be white. They carry no signs and don’t want to speak to reporters. Trailed by designated “medics” with red crosses taped to their clothes, these groups head straight for the front lines of the conflict.

    Night after night in this ravaged city, these small groups do battle with police and the National Guard, kicking away tear gas canisters and throwing back foam-rubber projects fired at them. Around them, fires break out. Windows are smashed. Parked cars destroyed. USA TODAY reporters have witnessed the groups on multiple nights, in multiple locations. Sometimes they threaten those journalists who photograph them destroying property.

  89. TSK, while I live a sheltered life I have experienced what you describe and have a lifetime injury to prove it. Long story short — at a wedding I was involved in, the bartender, who always made me uneasy but was one of few in the area doing mobile weddings so he often was part of the deal if the couples booked him, chimped out and body slammed me on concrete, fully dislocating my shoulder and tearing it in a way that can’t be fixed, after I very nicely told him I don’t do married, thanks, flattered, am taken myself, so that’s a no. I’m pretty sure he might have raped me that night too if my (little, loud, but not a defense system on that level) dog hadn’t lost his mind and my colleague who had walked away bc she was also sick of his shit, as were all of us he had been trying to hit on all night and had been telling him to “time to go” nicely for some time, hadn’t come running. From there he went home, tried to strangle his wife, and was put in jail. I didn’t file charges but I regret that now because he got out after three months and even though I’m sure I could’ve filed a medical claim against his insurance I was afraid of what he would do and so I didn’t. I’ll never work with him again, but he’s still around. So I get what you are saying and I didn’t even see it coming so one needs to be aware of how fast some can turn on a dime. Anyway… sucked but I am a lot stronger than I come across, way stronger than I honestly want to be sometimes.

    M1A?
    I’m not one for fancy analyzes and shit but I’ve used versions for work and in that capacity prefer one to an M4. I’d take one into any hurt locker. Any place. Any time

    BUT that bit of knowledge/ experince doesn’t necessarily fit for other folks for 2 reasons.
    I was always some part of a team with my own roles and responsibilities which were designed to improve the combat effectiveness of that team.
    Adds are pretty good I am much more proficient with a firearm then who ever is reading this.

    For other folks who don’t have the same level of experience and training? I would suggest sticking to an AR15 for a host of reasons. Not the least of which is recoil management( especially at close quarters) resource management(rooikes burn through more ammo, you’ll be able to afford more ammo and mags for the ar15 to off set poor trigger discipline…. Plus be able to afford more range time…..) and (most likely) not porfeceint enough to take advantage of the M1a’s biggest upside, extended range.

    Which is not a slam on folks. Most men shouldn’t be but so porfeceint at these things an AR15 or AM 47 is typically a better combat option for one dude and a regular job

    When we were in the ROK one of the pilots was dating a Korean girl and she asked about callsigns (there was a naming coming up). He explained how they came up with names and said, “for example they might name me Chachi” (after the Happy Days character…he looks kind of like Scott Baio)
    She was enraged and started yelling and slapping him.
    She didn’t believe there was a television character named that until he called Mike and he confirmed it by stating the name.
