2021.09.16 18:23 DexterLecter99 I just found out my brother is part of the "manosphere" and I went down the rabbit hole.

My brother had been expressing some really weird ideas recently so I asked him where he got it from and he said he's been watching this youtube channel called entrepreneurs in cars. I gave a few videos a watch and can't believe that so many people subscribe to this type of belief system. I then fell down the rabbit hole of the entire manosphere youtube bubble and lost it.
I've known about redpilling since the term was invented as I was a regular on some "problematic" sites in the early to late 2000's, and thought I was fairly familiar with the culture. I've been away from those corners of the internet for a while now and can't believe what it's evolved into. It's now a literal life philosophy about how to better yourself through demonizing women, "weaker" men and society in general. It's hilarious to me that satirical terms like "chad" "beta" and "redpill" invented by teenagers 15 years ago are now the basis for these "very serious masculine" mens entire outlook on life.
I'm incredibly depressed that my brother has fallen in with this style of thinking. He's in his mid 20's and never had much success with women. I get why he'd be upset about being single for so long. I tried telling him listening to these people wont help, but he's not listening.
These people speak like life coaches about how to understand women, date and make money but talk like autistic vulcans who have no concept of humanity or emotion. It's like they view social interaction and dating like a tv remote "if I push this button this thing happens." "if I act dominant then women want me". Like it's a fact of life. Humans are complex and complicated. Different people act and respond to behaviors differently. I swear these people are just scared of life being chaotic and random and want to try to put rules to it.
What's even worse is all of these idiots who watch and make this content have had bad relationships but are too emotionally crippled to realize they're the problem, so they blame women, men and the society that enables the behavior they see as preventing them from succeeding in relationships. I've tried explaining this to him but he just repeats the garbage he hears these people say. I don't want to hate my brother as we've always got along well, but I can't hear him talk about how "being friends with women is pointless" or "once a woman makes more money than you, thats the end of the relationship." The way these men talk about dating and things like "maintaining your frame" is like the way women talk about astrology and crystals. Making up their own lingo and rules for living life by following smooth brain ways of thinking.
I hate all of the people who make this content and the droves of helpless idiots who follow them.

2021.09.16 18:23 jenkinsonfire I plan to contribute my full TFSA room at once. Which ETF is best?

That’s going to be $71,500 and I’ve been researching some ETFs. I’m in late 20s, I already own a property, and I plan to make regular contributions from employment income. I would let the money sit for at least a year as I’m not in a rush to use it. The next big purchase I would want to make is a new car down the line.
So if I’m not in a rush to use it, what are the best ETFs? I kind of have my eyes on TEC.TO…. Possibly XEQT? Does it make a difference between which 100% equity ones?
Also, should I throw it all in at once or DCA?

2021.09.16 18:23 heelsmaster Stop upvoting those pandering pet pics asking for a name

It seems like every post about a cute puppy or kitty or animal of some sort is asking for them to be named. We all know the animal probably already has a name and if it doesn't it sure as hell isn't going to be what the comments decide. At this point is just a karma grab and an annoyance.

2021.09.16 18:23 Canadiannurse1 Should I trade my RAV4 Hybrid lease in early for a Subaru?

Hi Everyone,
I have a 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid limited. I paid 43500 for it back in May 2019 and drove 53,500 kms. Subaru has offered me 37,000 to buy the lease out and this would leave me with $8,000 in equity. Do you think it would be worth it to trade it in for a Subaru Forester or Outback? This seems like an insane amount of money to give me for the RAV4 as it would have only cost me $2600/year to drive the Rav4 for the past 2.5 years. Any advice would be appreciated.

I broke us. I shouldn't have told you. it hurts. I miss you. I didn't see you for 2 months and then yesterday I couldn't even look at you and it was hard that I had to act like nothing happened around the others. I wish you didn't kiss me. I wish you said no when I told you how I felt. why didn't you do it from the start...

2021.09.16 18:23 ComfortableNewt8608 Gfs actions made me lose it

My gf and I recently had an argument. I got out of her car and started walking towards my home. I live across from a fire and police station so she was parked in their parking lot. It was roughly 11:30pm and the neighborhood I live in has a lot of children and nursing homes close by (within 300 feet). As I leave the car she blares her horn. I don’t mean a small beep I mean she laid on it for a good few seconds. I ran back to her car and yelled at her for it, she had her hands in an x formation infront of her chest and I took it as her being smug but I’m not too sure. Anyways, you can get into a lot of trouble for beeping your horn that late especially when in a fire station parking lot and how my town is set up having nursing homes. I feel bad for yelling at her over it. But I was so pissed she did that because of the elderly,the kids, and my family who was obviously asleep. She’s not talking to me, she says I went too far..

Please keep in mind we are following chapters as printed in the official English release. Any reference to content beyond the English volume 4 (such as translated Pixiv chapters) I think are fine but should probably be spoiler tagged.
