“”Why should a man listen to the opinions of a dumb feminist broad?
|— the unironic beliefs of one Nick Kelly|
BOLD AND DETERMINED (BAD[note 1]) is a website that promotes manosphereian, MRA ideology, and being a motherfuckin' MAN. The blog is managed by
Victor Pride NICK KELLY. Kelly is a fan of over-the-top "masculine" rhetoric to the point that BAD sounds like satire
. The blog sucks and it
is great only in the opinion of Nick Kelly
. FEMINAZIS cry in fits of laughter
when they read this BLOG!

What it's about
The sane version
Kelly's blog is obsessed with:
- A spartan lifestyle (Ironically, Spartan women actually had it better than Spartan men: they didn't go to war and had more agency than Spartan men.)
- Testosterone supplements and testosterone (This would explain Kelly's aggression and over the top emotions.)
- Muscles and bodybuilding. (Preferred method: taking drugs, eating steak, and yelling on the Internet.)
- Clickbait articles. Lots and lots of clickbait articles.[citation NOT needed]
By November 2016, Alexa (reliable only in an extremely broad sense) ranked the BAD website at 85,000th worldwide (which translates to about 400,000 monthly visitors). The Facebook page had just 4,000 likes, the Twitter account had just 6,000 followers, and the YouTube account had just 3,700 subscribers and 359,000 views.
The MASCULINE version
MY NAME IS VICTOR "VANITY" PRIDENICK KELLY.
HERE AT BOLD AND DETERMINED WE LIVE LIKE A SPARTAN.
MY TRAINING PHILOSOPHY IS SIMPLE: I CONSUME TONS OF
STEAK AND EGG TO PROMOTE THE PRODUCTION OF
TESTOSTERONE AND MY EXTRA LARGE MUSCLES.
JUST LIKE A MOTHERFUCKING LION, I EAT THE SAME FOOD
DAY IN AND DAY OUT. DON'T WORRY ABOUT MY BOWEL MOVEMENTS,
BECAUSE MY KEGELS ARE FUCKING INTENSE.
MY BLOG PROMOTES COURAGE, STRENGTH, HONESTY,
AND POSITIVITY[note 2] ABOVE ALL ELSE.
WE MOCK AND FUCKING ELIMINATE TIMIDITY, WEAKNESS,
LAZINESS, AND GLUTTONY.
(NOT GLUTTONY OF STEAK AND EGGS, OBVIOUSLY. WE NEED
THOSE FOR FUCKING RIPPED MUSCLES!)
THIS BLOG IS PLAIN AND RAW. IT IS NOT POLITICALLY CORRECT,
I SPEAK LIKE A TWELVE YEAR-OLD AND HIGHLIGHT RANDOM WORDSTHERE IS ONLY ONE RULE IN LIFE: BE BOLD.
TO GET YOU FUCKING PUMPED BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT LIFE
SHOULD BE GRABBED BY THE OVARIES.

THE #1 LEGAL MUSCLE BUILDING SUPPLEMENT THAT ACTUALLY WORKS (AND WILL PROBABLY BE BANNED SOON)
|Original text||Improved formatting||Analysis|
|April 4, 2012 By Victor Pride||April 4, 2012 By Victor Pride||Tiny text before the storm.|
|UPDATE AUGUST, 27, 2016. Super DMZ has been BANNED like I predicted it would be.
Never fear, there is one NEW legal muscle building supplements that actually works.It’s called RED-PCT. You can read about it here: How to ACTUALLY Increase Your Free Testosterone Levels with Red-PCT (with Blood Work PROOF)
|UPDATE AUGUST, 27, 2016: OOPS, IT'S BANNED.
THERE'S A NEW LEGAL ONE THAT YOU MUST TRY. I SWEAR YOU WON'T REGRET IT AT ALL.YOU HAVE TO TRY RED-PCT, IT WILL MAKE YOU AN AMAZING STUD. CLICK HERE TO LEARN HOW TO BOOST YOUR TESTOSTERONE (WITH BLOOD WORK PROOF).
|When your favorite drug is banned, it's possible that it's banned with good reason. For example, Super DMZ caused severe liver damage, also known as jaundice.|
|As we have told you many times before here at the premises of pain most sports and muscle building supplements do not work as advertised. Big time sports and muscle stars sell these silly supplements to supplement their income, nothing more.
They won’t openly sell you the real deal (though many do, underground) because it is illegal. They also do not truly want to give away their secrets and face more competition. It takes a sociopathic mind to sell you bunk supplements and say they are the real deal muscle builders, but as these people will openly say "They will do anything to get to the top".[....]
|DON'T LET THE CROOKED DRUG DEALERS GET YOU DOWN.|
ALWAYS REMEMBER: BEING JACKED AS SHIT IS IMPORTANT.
|Kelly spends a long time talking up steroids as if only the law is preventing him from success. And of course because he has sculious and can be prescribed steroids. Awesome!|
|The Grey Hat method of building muscle If one doesn’t want to go to the dark side for fear of Johnny Law knocking on his door, but still has a taste for real muscle, he has options. His options are called DESIGNER STEROIDS (sometimes called PRO HORMONES). Designer steroids are really just steroids that found legal loopholes and are legally available for purchase (that is, until they are banned by Johnny Law).||DON'T LET THE ANNOYING LAWYERS GET YOU DOWN.|
ALWAYS REMEMBER: BEING JACKED AS SHIT IS IMPORTANT.
|When you have to write the phrase, "My preferred products are really just drugs that found legal loopholes", you should question whether what you're doing is a good idea.|
|The biggest big dog in the Designer Steroid world is called Superdrol (scientific name Methasterone). Superdrol was a beast. Superdrol was a real and true steroid. Superdrol would get you jacked before breakfast. A lot of sports stars relied on Superdrol. Superdrol now exists in a legal grey area and is not readily available.||THE BIGGEST BIG BIGFUL DOG WAS A FUCKING BEAST.||Are you saying this from personal experience, or... ?|
|However, clever scientists and marketers have been able to reproduce the magic of Superdrol by using the same ingredients and giving the product a different name.||SOME SMART NERDS ARE GONNA HELP YOU GET JACKED.||Again, "by using the same ingredients and giving the product a different name" is not a phrase that inspires confidence. (It's also not how designer drugs actually work.)|
|Today, there is one rightful heir to the throne of best legal supplement. This product has nearly the same exact recipe as Superdrol except it has an addition of 10mg of a molecule called Dimathazine, which, by all accounts, makes it the superior product for muscle building and muscle hardening. Make no mistake, this product works better than any other supplement you can buy at your local vitamin shop.
What is this product?
“The #1 Legal Muscle building supplement that actually works…”SUPER-DMZ
|FUCK YES FINALLY||using chemistry words makes my bodybuilding supplement more scientific|
|[UPDATE: So sorry but you are too late, Super DMZ has been banned. Check out RED-PCT, the #1 supplement that actually increases testosterone.]||OH SHIT NERVERMIND||... sigh.|
|Super-DMZ is the real deal. It is not a protein shake or glutamine or nitric oxide or any other baloney sold in the magazines. It is a potent oral steroid which will give you lean muscular gains in a short time frame. By all accounts Super-DMZ gives much the same muscle building benefits (without the harsh sides) as the illegal oral steroid Dianabol. Because it is so effective care should be given to how you take it, who takes it, and the length of time you take it.
Super-DMZ should only be used by healthy adults at least 21 years old. Do not exceed the recommended dose or duration of 4 weeks. Do not use if you are at risk of, or being treated for diabetes, liver problems or high blood pressure. Do not drink alcohol while using this product, and increase daily water intake. This product can negatively affect male fertility. Always consult your health care professional before using any dietary supplements.
[....]PPS – BOLD & DETERMINED is not your Doctor and is not advising you take these products. Read up before you beast up.
|by the way, i'm not a doctor and i am not advising you to use these products and i have no idea how these affect your body||Kelly, Kelly, Kelly. Cowardice is hardly masculine. You're not advising the usage of drugs that could make us MASCULINE? Did your lawyer tell you to say this, Kelly?|
|If you want to get jacked the legal way this is how you do it, friends. Get ready to hear the ladies say “Oh my god!” when they touch your arms and abs.||ALL THE LADIES LOVE THE TONED BUNS AND THIGHS OF A SPARTAN. THIS TESTOSTERONE SUPPLEMENT ROCKS MY FUCKING WORLD. FOR THE MOST OPTIMAL EFFECTS, I SNORT IT UP MY MOTHERFUCKIN NOSE.||Uh.|
UNCONVENTIONAL ADVICE FOR YOUNG MEN
|Original text||Improved formatting||Analysis|
|As a young man you have the whole world and an entire lifetime in front of you. Now is the time to take advantage. Of all the regrets you may have later in life, wasted time will be the most heartbreaking of them all.
Do not follow the path that has been laid out for you, do not do as everyone else you know. Unless you are average.
During your schooling you have been led to believe that you must follow this order: go to college, get a job to pay back your student loans, get married, consume as much as possible, save for retirement at which point you can live life, and then die having accomplished nothing other than being a good boy and doing what you were told.
Everything you have been sold in high school is a complete lie. If you find this unbelievable just ask anyone in their late twenties to mid-thirties who followed this path and see how happy they truly are. They may lie with their words but their soulless eyes cannot tell a lie.Looking back on how I used to live my life I see a lot of wasted time that could have been used to build something magnificent. I didn’t wake up until after my mid-twenties. If I could go back and slap some sense into my 15 year old self this is what I would advise:
|NEVER GO TO COLLEGE. THAT'S WHY I'M SO SUCCESSFUL.|
JUST ASK ANYONE ABOUT HIGH SCHOOL BEING A LIE. THEY WILL TELL YOU THE THINGS THAT AGREE WITH MY OPINIONS AND IF THEY DON'T, THEY ARE LIARS.
|Why hello there weasel words!|
|1) Lift Weights.||1) LIFT WEIGHTS.||All right, this point has been beaten to death, next.|
|2) Play a sport, especially wrestling I used to laugh at all the “dumb preppy jocks” in my school. What I didn’t know is how competitive sports like wrestling or MMA developed strength, courage, discipline, and pride – things that I very sorely lacked until much later and things that are lacking in all the youngsters I see who don’t compete, spending all their time on the computer or other useless time-wasters.||2) PLAY A SPORT, ESPECIALLY WRESTLING SPORTS GIVE YOU STRENGTH, COURAGE, DISCIPLINE, AND PRIDE. FUCKING DO SPORTS. DON'T BE A NERD AND WASTE TIME ON THE COMPUTER.||Aren't you also wasting your time on the computer?|
|3) Don’t bother going to college Anyone and everyone go to college now and because of this colleges and universities are filled with monumentally stupid people who have no earthly business at an institute of higher learning. As you will learn later a college degree means absolutely nothing when you go your own way and do not follow the path that everyone else will follow. A college degree does not guarantee a “good” job. A “good” job does not guarantee safety. The only safety guaranteed is what you do for yourself. There is no safety relying on other people.||3) DON’T BOTHER GOING TO COLLEGE SHIT SUCKS AND IS STUPID. YOU WON'T BE GUARENTEED A JOB.||So this is why you had a YouTube video stating that you were homeless? In any case, a college can't possibly guarantee you a job, but it tries hard to get you one because it looks good on the college.|
|FYI – You do not have to go to college to get drunk, party and hook up. That can be done anywhere at any time.||FYI – YOU DO NOT HAVE TO GO TO COLLEGE TO GET DRUNK, PARTY AND HOOK UP. THAT CAN BE DONE ANYWHERE AT ANY TIME SUCH AS CHURCH ON SUNDAY.||Oh my god, an actual good point!|
|5) Turn off the TV|
You can’t pick a bigger waste of time than TV watching. Same for video games and other mindless internet usage.
|5) TURN OFF THE TV DON'T WATCH TV, PLAY VIDEO GAMES, OR MINDLESSLY USE THE INTERNET.||Get off the Internet, Kelly!|
