I never suggested completely abandoning outer appearances.My position has always been to have both.
General hygiene, exercise, reasonably fit, basic style concerns, etc.
You, of course, are free to do whatever you want.
I am, again, expressing my opinion that inner game improvements will always trump improvements in outer appearances.
Also it is my opinion that those who OVERLY focus on outer appearances are avoiding addressing inner game issues.
That is my OPINION on the motivations of the behaviors of others.
Argue in favor of your preferences all you like.
These are my beliefs, which have and will continue to serve me well, based on my objectives.
I will always recommend inner game work vs. concern over appearances (beyond certain basics) as a generally useful male strategy.
Since your making assumptions about the REASONS behind my argument, I'm assuming you don't really have any counter arguments TO my argument.The reason you backpedal with straw assumptions in this quote is because we identified that TO allows social constructs to direct what he should or should not do, at the cost of improving himself.
Just to make sure you don't get confused, this is my position, as clear as possible:
Once a basic level of outer appearances is established, (health, fitness, basic fashion, hairstyle, etc.) the most results one can achieve will come through inner game work, social skills improvement, etc. vs. venturing into artificially enhancing ones outer appearance.
