For a while, this guy on Twitter shilling his $10 PUA ebook responded to every @PUA_txt tweet with sincere advice and criticism, apparently not getting the joke.
The guy, Ray Charles Gordon, turns out to be a prolific writer of PUA garbage who has been churning out his crap on the internet since the 90s. Here you can read his schizophrenic 600-page PUA book, which include a hundred overly-detailed “field reports” dating back to 1980 interspersed with horrible advice and his insane life story as a frequently-unemployed racetrack gambler living with his mother, posting on PUA BBSes, and filing several lawsuits against UPenn for “affirmative-action reverse discrimination.”
It’s really something to behold. He gives the girls bizarre code names like “Le Club,” “OTL,” and “SHBWitchy.” He keeps alluding to the “Battle of Kate” (seriously, search for this term, it comes up dozens of times) and pursuing “Kate-positive traits.” He promotes “hypnosex” as his favorite kind of sex. He details, with exact figures, his gambling losses and financial strategies that involve declaring bankruptcy and mooching off his ailing mother.
His fucking website URL is literally toosmarttofail.com.
Seriously, scroll to any random page of this PDF and you will find something ridiculous and amazing from “one of the original seduction-community PUAs,” a guy who, for his headshots, apparently went to the same headshot photographer as John Wayne Gacy:
Highlights include “Field Report Seventeen” (pg. 244):
Met another “future target” tonight: SHBTakeout (9.99) is incredibly hot, but only fifteen, so I had to keep it light… She’s like a fishbowl (chicken pen?) target, so we’ll be chatting a bit, definitely infrequently until she’s legal (sixteen in Pennsylvania).
On page 503 he details his battles against the corrupt marketers and unjust moderation on some fucking PUA message board from the 90s. This conspiracy then somehow relates to his UPenn lawsuits:
UPenn did its best to block my working there, including arguing in federal court that I was unemployable, and even getting a former law professor at UPenn Law (the “honorable” Anita Brody) to order a psychiatric examination
Apparently nefarious forces in the PUA community were sufficiently threatened by him to create what he calls a “hate website” against him:
WARNING: “Ray Gordon” is a <insert garden variety libel>, who suffers from debilitating mental illness. He is unemployed and lives with his mother at age <28-41>.
If you want to check out what would have happened if Ignatius Reilly had the internet, or if Vincent Gallo and Henry Darger stepped into the teleportation machine at the same time, then read this PDF. Be sure to share with your friends at PUA.txt any fascinating finds.
Gordon just started making YouTube videos (sorry, embedding is disabled). Here’s him ranting about how Neil Strauss and VH1 ripped him off, and here’s one where he explains that PUA is dead and that “MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way)” is the new way pick up women.
Thanks to @crystalproteins, who sent me these videos totally by coincidence. Yet another PUA.txt miracle.
