The Abdication Imperative

Rationalmale regular and all-around red pill evangelist MikeC had an interesting Matrix experience recently. This comment was drawn from yesterday’s Respect post:

“This is another socialized manifestation of hypergamy: the man must always perform for her, ***always qualify to her.***

Yup….I actually got engaged over the weekend, and when we got back in town we visited her parents. Me and her on one couch, her parents on the other, and I have a friendly relationship with them (her Mom loves me).

Anyways, we were talking some plans and stuff, and her Dad chimed in about getting used to just saying “Yes, dear”….”Yes, honey”, etc. First thing that popped into my head was the femcentric thinking involved. I didn’t think it was the time or place to call that out for the crap that it is…but I didn’t need to as both myself and my fiancee chimed in at the same time that our relationship isn’t one where she calls the shots and I just go along with it.

It truly is mind-boggling. It almost seems like at some point, a mass brainwashing took place that instilled in men that to “RESPECT” women you simply had to go along with whatever they wanted to say or do in that moment.

[Congrats Mike, and I mean that sincerely since I know you have your roots planted firmly in positive masculinity and Game-awareness. RT]

I was listening to a local talk radio show on my commute home last Friday and a caller tells the hosts that he’s getting married for the first time over the Memorial Day weekend. After all the ubiquitous congratulation, he petitions for advice from the show’s hosts as well as any listeners who call or text or IM into the show.

I can’t say as I was surprised, but predictably, every guy who dropped some words of wisdom couched it in exactly this “just say ‘Yes Dear’ to anything she asks, she’s always right” mass groupthink. “Happy wife equals happy life” was literally what at least 5 of these guys called in or texted to say. Everything after this was autonomously, automatically implying that a husband’s primary duty in a marriage was to ‘keep her happy’. “Make sure you get to all the things on her Honey – Do list and you’ll be alright” was another caller’s advice intoned in a voice that sounded as if he were telling a new arrival at Auschwitz of how best to survive in the camp.

Last week I wrote about how the Unplugged become progressively more sensitive to the group-speak of the Matrix, and MikeC’s experience is a a textbook example of this. However, it’s one thing to identify the code in the Matrix, but it’s quite another to see the latent purposes behind the memes, the clichés and the idioms that the PluggedIn take for common sense.

Hypergamy and Cognitive Function

As MikeC astutely highlighted from Respect, Men’s preoccupation with performance is a direct psychologically, sociologically evolved response to qualifying for women’s hypergamy. Perhaps the most important reason women’s primary drive revolves around security-seeking is due to hypergamy, by definition, being an inherently insecure proposition. In fact so insecure is feminine hypergamy in principle that it was necessary for women to evolve psychological fail-safe schemas on the subconscious level (i.e. involuntary shit tests).

In general, when a psychological dynamic is pressed into the limbic, involuntary, subconscious level of our psyche’s, it’s primarily due to that dynamic requiring too much mental attention for our conscious minds to process effectively and maintain a cognitive awareness of other dynamics, stimulus, etc. in our environment that require our more immediate attention. Mother Nature has evolved humans with a wonderful ability to muti-task our awarenesses, but there are limits to how much information a person can process efficiently before that psyche becomes overwhelmed. Taken to the extreme this processing overload has potentially life threatening and species survival implications. Thus these processes that would overwhelm our conscious cognitive abilities are relegated to our peripheral awareness and/or pressed down to a subconscious / preconscious level.

This then is the mental realm of feminine hypergamy. When Roissy writes about women’s hindbrains or imagination/rationalization hamsters, this is the conceptual, psychological region from whence they issue. It’s easier to think of hypergamy – and its manifestations such as shit tests – in terms of breathing. We can control our breathing when we think of it, but when our mental attention is required elsewhere our autonomous nervous system takes over and we breath on autopilot until such time as we become aware of that breathing. Whether we are under stress or running a marathon, that autonomous system kicks in to allow us to focus on more important stimuli. So too is it with hypergamy – women are aware of it, and may adress it consciously, but more often hypergamy is pushed into women’s peripheral consciousness to allow them to focus on other stimuli.

The Abdication Imperative

Hypergamy is rooted in doubt. Hypergamy is an inherently insecure system that constantly tests, assesses, retests and reassesses for optimal reproductive options, long-term provisioning, parental investment, and offspring and personal protection viability in a potential mate. Even under the most secure of prospects hypergamy still doubts. The evolutionary function of this incessant doubt would be a selected-for survival instinct, but the process of hypergamy’s assessment requires too much mental effort to be entirely relegated to women’s subconscious. Social imperatives had to be instituted not only to better facilitate the hypergamous process, but also to reassure the feminine that men were already socially pre-programmed to align with that process.

In an era when women’s sexual selection has been given exclusive control to the feminine, in an age when hypergamy has been loosed upon the world en force, social conventions had to be established to better silence the doubt that hypergamy makes women even more acutely aware of. And nowhere is this doubt more pronounced than in the confines of a monogamous commitment intended to last a lifetime. Thus we have the preconception “Happy Wife equals Happy Life” pre-programmed into both gender’s collective social consciousness. It’s as if to say “It’s OK Hypergamy, everything’s gonna be alright because we all believe that women should be the default authority in any relationship.”

When you disassemble any operative feminine social convention, on its most base, instinctive level the convention’s latent purpose is to facilitate and pacify hypergamy.

As I covered in Hypergamy doesn’t care,.. it isn’t enough to profess love, promise support, exemplify dedication, etc., no, in a social context hypergamy demands a total pre-abdication of authority. Hypergamy wants social assurances before it makes a decision it has to live with. And even under the condition of total contrition hypergamy will not be pacified, but feminization, since the sexual revolution, has defined society in hypergamic terms, and that imperative will insist that the general populace internalize that “Happy Wife equals Happy Life.”

I meant to mention this in response to last week’s article, but this one hits the nail more squarely on the head: I have been noticing this sort of pathetic, preemptive supplicating behavior freaking everywhere. It bothered me pre-red-pill, but now it’s like someone stabbing me with a pin. The worst part of it is that it’s rarely convenient to disassemble, on the spot, the absurd structure the Yes Dear Always responses are built upon, so you have to let them go. There’s neither time nor leverage to even point out that such comments are insipid, unmanly, abjectly unreciprocated, the… Read more »

It seems like turning yourself into a voluntary eunuch or hyper-agressive macho are the two strategies that result. The beta can’t understand the constant insecurity so he relinquishes his will over guiding it. The alpha doesn’t give a fuck since girls act on their best behavior until he is satisfied.

Hypergamy asks the question, betas give an answer. When hypergamy asks again, betas wonder why the answer didnt please. Alphas dont answer the question.

What about those sharp one liners that can be said and then just walk away? You know, those ones that make half the people laugh uncomfortably and make the other half angry?

Or would it be inappropriate as well in these settings? Explaining in detail most likely won’t get you anywhere, regardless. Those one liners tend to stick with people.

Man, I run into that disgusting blue-pill shit all the time. I find it offensive, and I have a very hard time keeping my mouth shut. If I do offer opposition, I just sound like a total asshole. I want to say, though, that you are giving too damn much power to hypergamy. It is a serious foe to battle, to be sure, but very much a defeatable one. Yeah, hypergamy doesn’t care about our ‘love’ etc.. But it is quite possible to function in such a way that hypergamy becomes placated, and only pops up in the occasional shit-test,… Read more »

But I must ask to anyone who can answer. What is the male equivalent to hypergamy? The obvious answer is a male’s desire to sleep with/impregnate tons of women or the attractiveness of his woman.

That would be ideal. I’m open to suggestions. With other topics my wit does its usual rapier flourishes, but in this case I’m like the ex-smoker who not only can’t stand the smell any more but has trouble not preaching about the ills of tobacco. The urge is strong to either slap the wuss out of them or shake them like a dog, shouting, “What the hell is wrong with you?!” So… Yeah. A collection of 1-liners kept at hand would be preferable.

Alas, I don’t have any one-liners for you. Hard to come up with without having a lead-up. Do you have a girl? My husband and I have been to parties where this goes on and our go to is some form of “Woman, how about a beer/whiskey/drink/sammich etc.” I give my best smile, get what he asked for and give it too him with a loving, happy kiss. The looks we are get are hysterical.

Good post Rollo.

It’s not just the husband regurgitating the ‘Yes, dear’ nonsense. It gets carried over all too often into the entire family with the ‘If Momma ain’t happy, nobody is happy….’ rationale. It essentially trains the children that same behavior which carries over into their own lives.

Good lord, between this and ‘Perceptions’ you are smashing it lately.

Also, in reply to ‘A’ – “But to me at least the parallels just aren’t as clear, like there are not online communities of women taking red pills on how to keep their men sexually satisfied or continue looking good throughout life, or some motherly advise to a daughter that parallels the “yes dear” advice fathers give sons”

Perhaps not the last point, but the number of magazines and websites devoted to helping women look good and be better in bed… it’s obscene

Everyone should go back to their old copy of Robert Ringer’s ‘Winning Through Intimidation’ for some simple remedies to hypergamy. No, your framed response to shit tests doesn’t have to be putting your fist through dry-wall to get her attention (although a display of controlled anger definitely brings out the submissive little girl when done properly… AND will get her abundantly wet). But Ringer’s business postulation of not even taking the time to address the obstacle in front of you (shit tests) – but leaping directly to where you want to be in the situation (giving commands and expecting prompt… Read more »

Nah, pure solipsism. We read an article like that and the first thing we have to do it compare ourselves to it. We can’t stop it from happening even if we try. Then, the urge to defend oneself is overwhelming. It is so blurring often times that it won’t allow an actual reading of the article because after the first thing that we take issue with, nothing else at all is even understood.

“Hypergamy demands that a woman push the relationship and try to take charge, then reflexively dump the chump when he abdicates the lead.” If only I’d read that years ago… Ah, well. Could be one of the most concentrated encapsulations of Red Pill I’ve ever seen. Look, the difference between being a good ruler and bad ruler is mostly in whether you believe it yourself, whether you know your fitness to lead to be true.

Peregrine John,

Seriously, all I got is quite crude. When a man tells you that you should always say “Yes Dear” to your wife you could respond something along the lines of “Huh. That’s funny. That’s what {insert name here} says to me when it’s hummer time”

I’ve read on a number of occassions (can’t site, sorry) how engaging in emotion-triggering media sets up us suckers, I mean, *viewers*, into a state of vulnerability, which makes us more open to, and less resistant towards, commercial messages.

[…] There is nothing more depressing to me than to listen to a married man parrot back all of the tropes the Feminine Imperative has taught him to repeat about why he’s in the subservient role in his marriage. These are the guys who’ll laughingly tell single men how they must “clear everything with the Boss” before they are allowed (or will allow themselves) to participate in anything remotely masculine or self-entertaining.
