The Wall is one of the most fascinating topics of the manosphere. I don’t know why, but it draws me to those creepy “wall victim” and “wall survivor” posts on RooshVforum. It’s almost a morbid sort of fascination, the type one has about a train wreck. On the other hand, wall survivors are as interesting as watching Guinness World records.
What is the wall? People have different definitions of it. Here’s a post by TempestTcup, which says there is not one wall, but three! The first one is around 30, where you lose the bloom of youth. The second one is at the menopause. And the third one is when you’re so old you look like an old crone and not seen through a sexual lens anymore (well.. maybe by the youngest, horniest and most desperate):
To observe male-defined (what other type is there?) examples of what is a wall and what is not, here are some “wall victims” from RooshVforum:

Here are some “wall survivors” from the same forum:

I think, in general, the wall is a moment when a woman who was hot is no longer hot. It seems you can get away with not looking 20 anymore if you still look hot and under 45.
So, how to deal with it?
Here’s a post by Stingray, which reminds us that spending our youth with a man who loves us will equip him with the so-called wife goggles, or love goggles:
However, the wife goggles might suddenly come off if you start acting like a bitch:
I have my own idea on how to deal with the Wall, which can be used together with the wife goggles. It’s not for everyone and it’s demanding. Probably for those who don’t mind plastic surgery, feel extra ambitious and are determined to make themselves exceptional. I like the 3-Wall idea posted on TempestTcup’s site. The idea is this:
1)When everyone hits the first wall (bloom of youth gone), transform into a MILF. Men sure like youth, but they also like variety. They find a young thing hotter, but a MILF has her own special hotness the young thing doesn’t have (cuz variety. Among other things). Just make sure you always look 15 years younger than you are.
Example of a MILF (IMO (Connie Nielsen))
2)When everyone hits the second wall, turn into a GILF. That’s probably something men like less, but still, it catches the eye.
Example of a GILF (Peggy Lipton)
3)The third wall.. Just don’t hit it. Die a GILF. Doesn’t mean you have to die early.
Example of a GGILF (Carmen dell’Orefice)
Of course, the best solution to the Wall would be to stop aging, but we have to do what we can with what we have.
Do ugly women hit the wall?
At 40, many women complain they have become “invisible” to men. But what happens to women who were always kind of ugly and invisible?
Say, a 9 hits the wall and turns into a 4 by the age of 50. 5 whole points is no joke.
Say, a fat 20-year old 3 turns 50, and is now a 2. Same fat person, and her fat filled out whatever wrinkles and sagginess she could have. 1 point drop.. Did she hit the wall or not? What if she was not fat, but instead simply ugly in the face? Some people look downright deformed in their youth, but age turns all the features in the right direction and makes them human-looking (I’ve seen it). While others just look just more hideous with age. Are they hitting the Wall, or just declining? It’s hard to fall off the floor.
Also, is it better to be a 9 and then drop 5 points, or be a 5 and drop only 2 points? Here, someone suggests bigger falls hurt more:
Most importantly, does it matter? Do they hit the Wall if there is no one around to look at them? Perhaps this is what you call the Ugly Privilege?
