>>186751>You can still enjoy it
When did I write that you can't enjoy life sometimes or find pleasures in it? Being a pessimist has nothing to do with this. You can be a pessimist and still enjoy certain things in life. It is about whether you want to be a delusional optimist (failed) normal or someone who lives in reality.>being an edgelord wears off
Norms call everything edgy, though. Everything that somehow stands outside the scope of socially accepted values. Or everything that isn't about the "unlimited happiness" we are supposed to experience, at least in their minds. "Oh you chose a path in a video game that is slightly darker, fuck off you edgelord!lol" usually this is how it goes. Everything is edgy that normals don't like.
> Last I checked, the “core of wizardry” is voluntary celibacy.
Yes and isn't it a total rejection of everything normalfags cherish and love? Sexuality and romance are the central pillars of their lives, along with the so-called friends they have. Please don't pretend that we are completely the same as normalfags. We aren't, we are completely different. You know it and everyone else here knows it too.>It’s not either-or. You don’t have to dislike EVERYTHING that NORPs like just so you can feel like your life has some semblance of purpose. You can pick and choose. It’s not black and white.
No. You have to have some kind of "ethics" when it comes to these kinds of things. We have to be consistent, otherwise we will fall apart. Either something is approved by wizard-standards or it isn't. For example, I just deleted the cartoon Johnny Bravo from my laptop, watched one hour of it and it is just normalfag humor, nothing else, all about presenting mating rituals in a "funny way". I also can't take wizards seriously who watch harem anime or other media where the loser mc ends up as a succesful normalfag in the end. Draw lines, with clear yes and no. Reject the normalfag brainwashing and seek out other kinds of entertainment.
It's not about wizardry to be honest with me. I know it is just my subjective opinion at the end of the day, but it is important to me. I mean, if you mindlessly watch and read everything normals watch or read then how are you different from them? That would make you a failed normal in my eyes.>>186756
Again, it isn't exactly about being a "contrarian". It is about having taste and actively choosing what you consume, not just letting society to shove down your throat every form of bullshit.
