A discussion on appearance and why it's fucking important (in response to recent posts). (self.TheRedPill)

I've noticed that since the surge of new members, there has been this slow push-back against the idea that physical appearance is important when it comes to what women value.
Whether in threads or in posts, some members have been trying to argue that women don't value this, or at least not as much as status, wealth, charm, etc.
To me, it sounds like a watered down RP-version of "Looks don't matter, just be yourself!!!"
I'm not the most knowledgeable RPer but, in my reading the idea is that women want both but for different reasons. If hooking up is your game, you need a decent body in order to maximize success. If you want long-term it helps to have your shit together and be better than her most respects (money, occupation, admiration, etc).
Months ago, a constant theme of TRP was self-improvement through bodybuilding and sport. "Hit the gym" was the mantra of this subreddit but now, it seems to have been downplayed.
I've been working out since August of last year and it's been rewarding on so many levels; more energy, more confidence, more female attention, less bitchy behavior, more respect from my friends and even total strangers, not to mention the perks that follow all those things. I've had more sex in the past two months than I have in the previous four years. Sure, I dabbled in game but the tipping point didn't arrive until I got my fat ass in the gym.
To me, it's just insane that the prospect of building a better "you" is being downplayed or de-emphasized, especially when it has more intrinsic benefits than reading every thread, manual, and post on game.
Is all of this "looks aren't that important" talk just hamstering away the prospect of having to work, sweat, and ache for results or am I just fucking clueless here?
