The second rule of Fight Club is you don’t talk about Fight Club.
The narrator weaves a grand tale in between smaller glimpses of his lifestyle and the relationships he forms. Throughout the novel, the nameless narrator subjects himself to the works of Tyler Durden and the Fight Club they form together.
He currently had bitch tits because he was on hormone therapy that was causing his estrogen levels to go well beyond their normal levels (Palahniuk 21).
The men in this particular support group are all missing their “manhood,” in which Bob particularly suffers from because his fall from grace was from his idea of what being a man should be; Bob said it was better than real life (22).
The narrator is a male striving to achieve the ultimate idea of masculinity by using his ego as a motivator, and by destroying the other values in his life that have conformed too much to society. Kimmel then gives his second point: “The second rule is to be a big wheel.
You know, we measure masculinity by the size of you paycheck, wealth, power, status, things like that,” (1).

The obvious choice would be to say that the narrator and Tyler are the same person.
