Some gems from the last psychiatrist

He writes even longer than me. And, also like me, he has a tendency to circle an issue rather than going straight at it. And, man, is he good.

Here are some great bits from his latest:
The fraud women now believe is that it is wrong to look good for men only, as an end in itself; the progressive delusion is that looking good for men is synonymous with submissiveness, so while you're allowed to look good to men, it should always be secondary to looking good for yourself. This is madness. You are enhancing your outward appearance, which is great, but then you pretend it's for internal reasons?
"Ugh, women are not objects." Then why are you painting them? I'm not saying you have to look good for men, I'm saying that if wearing makeup not for men makes you feel better about yourself, you don't have a strong self, and no, yelling won't change this. Everyone knows you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, now you're saying the cover of the book influences how the book feels about itself?
Feminism has left women in a really weird place. Maybe that's okay. In the long run. But that is what it has done.

Finally, a point I have often made here:
The trick to the makeup debate is that it pretends to want to be free of male pressure, yet the pressure to look a certain way is actually much worse from women.
And he's just warming up. It keeps getting better after that. Read the whole thing.


  1. Actually, there is an ongoing debate whether "he" is a man or a woman.

    In lots of articles The Last Psychiatrist describes "herself" as someone who wanted to be on Playboy when "she" was young and "she" also made references to "her" husband.

    Also, the fact that "she" blames narcissistic men for all the world's problems should tell you something about "her" identity.

    "She"'s an awesome writer, though.

    1. Might be. I don't know. I rather suspect, however, that TLP is in the habit of dropping all sorts of biographical details that are just red herrings.

  2. Yes, TLP has talked about being in male locker rooms and also talked about coming onto a female patient told in a very masculine like manner (Of course the second story was definitely made up and TLP said so but TLP keeps doing it)
