Is it possible to live a life of intellectual integrity and general sense of accomplishment without interacting with the opposite sex?

>> No.15071788

Depends on your definition of "interaction." I would suggest that, if you are truly of a broad enough mind to be a man of achievement, you'll inevitably come across some woman or other worthy of your interaction. Whether you want to fuck (which is clearly what your question's about) is up to you but really has nothing to do with intellectual or practical achievement.

Sure it "could," but that "could" is something on the order of "you could get struck by lightning the next time you go outside." For instance, even W.H. Auden, otherwise a committed homo, experienced probably the most intense romance of his life with a woman. Becoming a fully realized human being almosst necessitates meeting many people and many different kinds of people, and among them will be women.

Yes, and the paragon with the lightning is indeed correct. I encountered a lot of brilliant, creative and intelligent men in my life, such as artists, musicians and writers.

It just means that you view everything in terms of what Marx calls the "value-form": in this instance, you fail to realize that your dick has intrinsic value independently of its being compared with other dicks.

While I have not read Marx, I have heard so much stupidity about his various analyses of value. I feel like, perhaps, in the original there is something to it, but that everyone who talks about it is unable to understand it. Due to this failure of understanding everyone who brings it up sounds like a flaming retard.

The primary evolutionary purpose of my dick is to impregnate women. If a person has erectile dysfunction, for example, the value of his dick is reduced to merely allowing him to piss.

You have also reduced a person's sexual market value (which includes other things, like intelligence, charisma, looks, health, status, etc.) to a conversation about dicks. This highlights your phallic fixation.

Also, I would argue that my post was more about 'use value' or 'trade value' (or even 'labor value' due to education, diet, exercise) than anything. But my counterargument has always been that the word 'value' should be a vector with components being the various different forms of value. Thus when we talk of 'value' we can be clearly referring to something's general or total value.

And none of this even touches the main point. Sure, something may have intrinsic value without regard to any comparison. But that still doesn't say why your decision making should lead you to eating rotten food over a fresh piece of fruit.

To be honest, women who are as focused and driven as men are deathly. Women should be women; what do you really want a woman for? Well, she should understand you as you are, not know you for who you are at work. Having a relationship is supposed to be a welcome relief from adult life.

I know this board is filled with virgins who suppose that if women shared their interests, they could talk to them more freely and find love easier, but that's bullshit. Once you find that girl who shares all your male interests and you make love, you'll end up dumping her. You can't appreciate her for very long since she's actually just too boring and controllable, since she's so like yourself that you can just read her mind and get her to do anything. Then she'll manipulate you back, and you'll grow cold and indifferent to one another, it will be like a marriage that matured too fast.

A girl should try not to know anything beyond some dilettantish displays of knowledge. She should get rid of knowledge and intellect and replace them with caring and truthfulness and discernment. The last thing a man really wants after a long day at work (or even a short day at work) is an intellectual discussion.

>appreciate her for very long since she's actually just too boring and controllable
I feel like this is a feminine sort of mindset itself. I'm not really interested in an exciting woman to take me on an emotional ride. I'm looking for someone reliable, trustworthy, and suitable to marry and raise children with.
I can have all the intellectual discussions I want with my male friends.
I'd imagine that if I was a woman but aside from being feminine otherwise the same, I'd be looking for a man similar to myself.
