The Stupid Male Trick – Male GSRRM – I don’t understand, you’re wrong.
The Stupid Female Trick – Female GSRRM – I disapprove, you’re bad.
The male method: Cast an accusation and cause the author to defend himself, rather than allow the falsehood to spread.
The female method is to substitute disapproval for truth. The masculine method is to force the author to educate the critic on his terms rather than do the work, or rather than admit his ignorance or status simply asking the question.
Either you can ask a question if you have little knowledge, you can make a criticism on the terms implied if you have more, or you can explain what you disagree with and ask why you err.
If I criticize thinkers it’s after understanding their work. In most cases thinkers have only one or two fundamental insights that all their additional prose explains the application of it to a host of contexts.
Most critics on the other hand have no ideas, only a field of ignorance error bias, and deceit.
This is the difference between producers and rent seekers.
Some of us produce ideas.
The rest consume, or rent seek.
Male posers are rent seekers.
I have no critics that I know of that are not mere rent-seekers.
