As many of my followers know I am a huge fan of Fight Club and Chuck Palahniuk. I love the psychology of it to be honest. And once you’ve seen how Fight Club portrays the male stereotype everyday life is hilarious!
Fight Club shows that the media of today’s world have men thinking they need the newest gadgets and they have to look a certain way. It’s compared to how men were when the only thing to worry about was survival.
“Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who’ve ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.” -Tyler Durden.
And now you see the men in new trucks that have all the perks. I call it small penis syndrome. Media has turned a lot of guys into douchebags, that’s for sure.
