Guys who write about how much they love Ayn Rand on dating profiles.

That's a bad sign, right?

by Anonymousreply 4410/30/2013

The worst, OP.

by Anonymousreply 110/28/2013

It's an immediate dealbreaker, OP.

Keep looking and good luck.

It's the hugest of red flags.

They like to pretend they read her books but actually they only saw the movies.

by Anonymousreply 410/28/2013

Unless he's in high school, I would be wary.

by Anonymousreply 510/28/2013

I've never read her work but don't like people who have.

by Anonymousreply 610/29/2013

run away!

by Anonymousreply 710/29/2013

They probably have mommy issues and really want to be spanked.

You should run away from anyone in high school too R5, or are you outing yourself as a pedophile

by Anonymousreply 1010/29/2013

R10 Please do yourself a favor and look up the definition of pedophile.

by Anonymousreply 1110/29/2013

No, no, those guys are great. Assuming you like people who live on the Isle of Solips, assuming you never wish for emotional support, and assuming you think helping others is a sign of weakness.

R11 = pedo apologist.

by Anonymousreply 1310/29/2013

It's the equivalent of a bio-hazard sign on the side of a steel drum.

by Anonymousreply 1410/29/2013

More of a sign of being a sociopath than having the word "sociopath" tattooed on your forehead.

by Anonymousreply 1510/29/2013

R13 Sex panic alarmist. High school senior= 17 or 18. Not my cup of tea, but hardly pedo.

by Anonymousreply 1610/29/2013

Midget mind.

by Anonymousreply 1710/29/2013

R17, when someone is actually able to demonstrate that.

by Anonymousreply 1810/29/2013

R20, many government actions from war to spying to certain ill-conceived or badly-excited social programs have decidedly not worked and have been detrimental.

by Anonymousreply 1910/29/2013

There are possibilities than either

A. All government intervention is bad and should be abolished


B. Government should intervene in all things always.

The fact that this simple truth is incomprehensible to Ayn Rand devotees is why they should be avoided at all costs.

That, and their small penises.

R21 = dateless, friendless, retard at large.

They're the most insufferable of the lot.

Maybe they feel Ayn Rand is an impressive read. Or want you to think so. I'm not so much for Objectivism, thinking she made up her own gobbly-gook because existentialism was taken and already done to death. And better. But I had to read The Fountainhead and enjoyed it, feeling having an independent mind and some integrity is a good thing. Her other work? In novels, I want a story told me, not some philosophical crap thrown. Find yourself a guy reading John Irving.

by Anonymousreply 2310/29/2013

R24, at no point did I write that all government intervention is bad and that the private sector should provide for the needs you describe. I wrote that not all government interventions work and are a good thing in contrast to what R17 asked. Ask Merkel about the benefit of the NSA listening to her phone calls; the Vietnamese and Iraqis about the interventions for their "benefit"; the residents of crime-ridden and badly-designed housing projects of the 60s and 70s; or the prisoners of North Korean gulags. The list of government programs and actions, both domestic and foreign, current and historic, that are failures is probably longer than the list of those programs and actions that have been successful. That doesn't mean that one should give up on trying to create and improve successful government programs and interventions.

"The list of government programs and actions, both domestic and foreign, current and historic, that are failures is probably longer than the list of those programs and actions that have been successful."

Complete and utter bullshit and without any foundation in reality.

by Anonymousreply 2510/29/2013

Spot on, R12. Ayn Rand was the worst sort of sociopath and her "philosophy" confirms it.

by Anonymousreply 2610/29/2013

She was a bad writer too.

by Anonymousreply 2710/29/2013

r15 hit the nail on the head.

by Anonymousreply 2810/29/2013

Don't most serial killers just love her books to pieces?

by Anonymousreply 2910/29/2013

More than anything it's code for "ugly, old troll." Everyone knows that young, hot guys don't read books.

by Anonymousreply 3010/29/2013

Many serial killers are hot.

by Anonymousreply 3110/29/2013

Leave the Objectivism aside; someone who admits to liking Ayn Rand admits to having shitateous taste in literature.

by Anonymousreply 3210/29/2013

Mention John Galt..see the dumb reaction.

by Anonymousreply 3310/29/2013

It is almost as bad as people that claim they have read the complete Proust "Remembrance of Things Past." I mention "Swann's Way" and they have that glazed look, "oh, yeah I read that" I usually inform that person that it is really extremely difficult being so cultured.

by Anonymousreply 3410/29/2013

R13 If by "pedo apologist" you mean someone who actually knows what the word means and does not use some made up definition pulled out my ass, then yes, I am a pedo apologist.

by Anonymousreply 3510/30/2013

Well I read all of Proust and I don't see what the big deal is. Swann's Way, by the way, is not the best part, being overwritten Combray and the lengthy and slightly trashy digression called Swann's Love.

by Anonymousreply 3610/30/2013

As bad as Socrates, some of that bullshit.

by Anonymousreply 3710/30/2013

If they say they like Ayn should tell them that you hope they drop dead.
