    Re: Leaving Behind a Legacy As a Man - Depressing

    I want to chime in. *disclaimer* This is how I live & believe, your beliefs may vary. I have 2 pretty successful daughters, you guys that read my stuff, have heard this ad nauseum. What progeny or future of ME do I hope to leave? NONE. First, one girl is man crazy, totally PUA addicted who has taken VERY good care of herself, at the expense of buttholes that need to get laid, furiously. The "baby", now 35, is totally self made, landlord, & homeowner, all being single. She made no money off of men. She has my respect. Never married, self driven, fiercely independent.

    I do not believe that humans go to heaven when we die. Pretty arrogant franchise. Like, "I'm going to be in the presence of an Almighty Creator, just because I think so" is way too much for me. I'm more realistic.
    I do not believe if there were a Creator, (which I do), that after all this crap we deal with under this present mess, would send ANYONE to hell.
    (if you're a Bible Scholar, there's a good belief that both sheol & hades refers to a place of inactivity, I'm in on that)

    So this leaves me with this:: If my girls belong to another man with his progeny, & I'm in a place of inactivity, Why would I even give a shit?

    Think about the Millionaires you've seen die, & then watch their asshole kids* act like total dipshits, then I have a picture why I will not care, simply because I will not know.

    *see paris hilton

    & if they have done well based on things that THEY DID in their life, then they learnt well.

    (Just to be thorough, there was no intent to push any belief dogma or agenda at all.)

    Re: Leaving Behind a Legacy As a Man - Depressing

    The beauty of nihilism is that it frees you in that you can choose to believe whatever you want and pursue whatever you want. I love religion and science and to me that is what is important for me to model my life around as guiding principles.

    It is truly counter intuitive to think about but when you realize the last red dwarf goes out in the universe billions of years from now does it matter if you passed on a genetic legacy?

    Having kids for the right reasons makes sense but a legacy to leave behind isn't as compelling IMO but I understand that view point. If you love yourself that is more than enough. If you want kids and to shower them with love and knowledge that is okay too. But there are opportunity costs with all things in life and you must accept that moving forward.

    Damn, brothers, the way it's looking, I better start taking vacations and living the life, while I'm still young and healthy. The fucking family functions don't make this shit easy though, fucking people look at you like a fucking degenerate for not having kids. But they come from a different generation, they don't know shit about how it is right now.

    My family was extremely independent, and considered my lack of a wife and kids to be none of their business. They couldn't help thinking I was missing out, but after they said their piece, they dropped it. Was I lucky, or what? That's how your family should look at it. If they don't, well fuck e'm. Nothing winds me up faster than someone trying to get me back on the plantation, and I don't care who it is. Actually, I never lived on the plantation except for growing up with my folks, but after spending countless years trying to join, I might as well a been living there. They can have the place.
    Every day I make the world a little bit worse.

    Easily. Nature had mercy on me in the sense that I have never wanted a child. Legacy… Look around you, how many dinosaurs can you see? So much for legacy.

    Hi. There is no thread in New Member Intros sub-forum with you as its author.

    You joined this website and opened this thread way back on March 4 but I closed this thread per Post#4 until you would do an Intro. Then, a fellow Mod moved this thread to Opposing Views for its content so I figured I'd re-open it to let this discussion continue while we waited on your Intro. And here we are.

    You're still a registered member so an Intro must be proffered. See Post#4 for instructions. Please attend to this.

    Or, I can close your account and you can continue in this thread as the Unregistered Guest that you would become.

    Thank you.

    Society is a bitch like that. I'm a man in my early 30's with no kids or woman myself and throughout my 20's I've been in that blue pill rat race of courting several women just to find one to settle down with and have a family. That endeavor was obviously unsuccessful but after my 30th birthday I've stopped giving a damn about it. I'm still relatively young and healthy with a lot of life left to live. I decided not to play a game rigged for me to lose in the long run. The whole legacy thing is another concept indoctrinated into society. Speaking to men in general, we shouldn't have to feel pressured into having a family because it's expected of us by generations prior to us. Do it only if you want to and hope that family you create lasts because in this generation, long lasting marriages have become an ancient relic of years gone by.

    I've always wondered, why in the fuck would ANYone care if I'm married or not? It's nobody's beeswax but mine. That's the attitude I should have had when I was in my 20's. Oh, if only I had a time machine...I'd have two completely different ex-wives. Ecchh!

    Re: Leaving Behind a Legacy As a Man - Depressing

    I don't see my intro in there anymore. Thankfully I have our email thread so I don't look that stupid.
    Remember the intro I did, I even had people comment on it, and my intro was accepted. What happened? Check the record below.

    Re: New member info

    Ok, I sent it through. This is very picky of me, but perhaps you can make bold or colorize or underline the first sentence of each section as that would distinguish our words from yours. Or insert a blank line. Yes, very picky of me! LOL

    Wow, glad you saved that. My apologies. Yes, I do remember my message and that you did go back and underline them. I remember that others posted there as well. That is weird. I've never seen this happen before. The whole thread, gone.

    Could you do this for me, please, to pre-empt any further question about it? Can you again create a thread in the New Members Intro sub-forum so that it comes in under your username, then I'll place this post in that Intro and we'll call it good? If you happen to have your original Intro, all the better, but ok if you don't. Perhaps throw up any amount of info about yourself so folks will see something, then I'll approve it and say why.

    I also looked in Opposing Views sub-forum to see if it came over like this thread did. Nope.

    I'm sorry for this mystery and this inconvenience.

    No worries.

    To be honest, I shared what I wanted to share with the men out here. I got a lot of perspectives from a lot of people here, and I'm content as to where I am with myself. In so many words, I'm gone, and it's been a pleasure having the opportunity to be here. But now it's time for me to move on. Thanks.

    I confirmed with logicdoesnotapply via PM that he is the author of this anonymous post and that he is departing us.

    What a long, strange trip this must have been for this member. The man registered, posted this thread in the Lounge I assume, I closed it for an Intro, another Mod moved it to Opposing Views for its content I assume, I re-opened it, his subsequent Intro thread gets posted, members respond to it, then it vanishes without a trace **, and it so happens that he posts a goodbye as Unregistered Guest although his account was still open. A bit unorthodox, the way this all went, ha. But, we are parting on good terms and that's important. I'll close the account.

    [**Mod note: in experimenting, deleting the first post in a thread removed the entire thread. That may have happened here.]
