Glitches in the Matrix

Every so often there’s a visible glitch in the feminine Matrix. Usually these come in the form of some notable men making an obvious push back against the fem-centric social undercurrent. When these ‘glitches’ are brought to the notice of femcentrism the predictable social response is to resort to the standard shaming schemas and brandings of ‘misogyny’ of the offenders and moving on.

I was going to use super bowl commercials as a convenient illustration, but in the recent decade even these have been sanitized and reformatted to serve the feminine imperative. But this commercial is something else. Naturally it’s a european TV spot; the thought of doing a spot like this would never enter the minds of fem-centric American ad agency creatives.

A few years back Harley Davidson brushed the surface of the dynamic this commercial taps into. They had a campaign with the tag lines of “Go ahead, we’ll wait ’till you ask your wife.” and “Your wife called, she said it was OK.” all referring to men purchasing a new motorcycle. In Harley Davidson’s instance the sales motivation was male shaming with the intent of questioning the men’s “manhood” in who really makes the decisions for them. Women get a knowing snigger from it, and men are pressured to buy with the reminder of how truly controlled they are by the women in their lives.

Where the Harley campaign had an element that women could positively relate to, this commercial pushes past this dynamic and exposes in no uncertain terms the ugliness of fem-centrism. I can’t be sure, but my guess is that most of the reactions these men’s wives had were genuine. With the exception of the woman at the end smashing the windshield (dramatization) it looks as if most reactions were shot unbeknownst to the women. The producers wanted a visceral effect and they got far more than they probably bargained for. The commercial has since been excoriated by women, the advertising community, and was of course pulled by Toyota. Women didn’t like what the mirror reflected back at them.

The dichotomy here is that hypergamy propels women toward the most dominant, decisive, Alpha their capacity to arouse can afford them, but their need for long term security conflicts with entrusting a man with decisions that directly affect her. The solution then is to socially limit or eliminate a man’s ability to make decisions based on his (a masculine primary) frame. When one woman in the clip screams, “You are so selfish!!” you’re seeing the visceral reflex of the feminine imperative clashing with the masculine imperative.

If and when a new masculine-primary social paradigm evolves, expect the feminine social reaction to be equally as hostile.

But yeah, cohabitation is where it’s at.

If you really, really, really want to get married, then you need to make sure you have enough game to keep her hypergamy in check until she hits the wall at least, then find a nice young virgin to get that extra bonding power, then get a few lawyers to fix you up a solid prenup. It sounds crazy but it’s not impossible.

What’s your take on this relationship advice in the Boston Globe? About a year ago, a friend introduced me to his wife’s friend, and we hit it off. I’m 29 now, and she’s 26. We dated, things went extremely well, and things have progressed to the point where we are both extremely happy and have been considering moving in together this summer when our leases end. All in all, a very normal, healthy, mutually respectful relationship that makes us both very happy. A few weeks ago, however, she dropped a bomb on me. She told me that when she was… Read more »

Men are polygamous, women are hypergamous. One man with several concubines. More women than men. Monogamy is just a mate guarding tool to bind the highest value male, thats my opinion.

Haven’t read all the comments yet. One of my first impressions was that the reason the girl was getting angry is that a sports car is a symbol for the mans sexual independence. It will attract other girls and is saying “I’m still on the market”. After marriage wives turn into matrons, and chop off their hair, signaling that they are no longer on the market. I think they used to wear head scarves also for that purpose. The guy is expected to trade in the sports car for a sedan or mini van. He’s supposed to become all about… Read more »

“because it robs you of your prime biological directive / greatest joy in life: reproduction / children. ”

Speak for yourself. I’ve had a very joyous life, and some of those joys had to do with my own progeny, but not that many and not the greatest of them.

My greatest joys have had to do with dating pretty young women.

I can (just barely) imagine that for others the joys would be higher with children, but then I can’t imagine that those guys get as much joy as I do out of women.

Unconditionally. Outcome Independence – in other Word’s. If you want to fuck someone, then find a way to fuck them. I.E., let them come to you. Patience rewards those who wait. Always. So does proactive persistence. It beckons those who you want to come forward. So you can either move ahead or pretend to fall behind. Either way we’re all gonna be in… Read more »

Would you give your life for your own children? Or would you give your life for the young girls you date? Which one is the stronger biological impulse? Which one is the source of joy that is to be guarded with your life?

That’s a clever sleight of rhetoric, Adam. But that flourish of misdirection doesn’t change the fact that for me, the joys are hundreds of times greater in love and sex affairs with pretty young women than they are with offspring.

Fucking girls doesn’t seem to be threatening anyones life, so luckily I don’t have to choose. It would not be good if someone were to have their life dependent on me not fucking girls.

No source of joy is worth it to be guarded with your life, except for life itself. There’s always another source of joy to be found. Also, from a biological impulse perspective children will/should be sacrificed before adults if they are not of child rearing age. A child without parents will have a hard time to grow up and be able to procreate, while parents without child will be able to procreate immediatly. And once the children are fertile they are able to stand on their own, so not worth guarding anymore, unless the parents have become unable to procreate.… Read more »

I wouldn’t give much a damn if my husband bought an expensive new car, as long as it’s his money he’s spending and not mine. The first time I heard of a couple doing this “my money your money” bullshit I knew marriage was officially dead. It doesn’t matter anyway because what’s yours is yours and what’s his is half yours as soon as he signs the papers, but just the idea of having your money completely separate seems like it defeats the purpose of two sharing a life together. Why not just be roomies? muscleman- I agree with you… Read more »

“Third, Mark Minter has experience. Heed it. Yes, his experience is only one set of possible experiences, and there are many other people who’s knowledge and experience should also be taken into account, but Mark’s is still real-world experience. Again, heed it, because it is far from an isolated case. For example: http://whoism3.wordpress.com/2012/11/17/confessions-of-a-reformed-incel/ If a person who is aware of all this still decides to marry, more power to them.

“After marriage wives turn into matrons, and chop off their hair, signaling that they are no longer on the market.” In my culture its different. Single women dress and look plainer than married women, who are expected to be decked out and keep up their hair to look nice for their hubbies. “He’s supposed to become all about the family.” Of course. There’s no point in getting married unless you’re into becoming all about the family. The purpose of marriage IS family.

What culture do you call your own, Hopeless? Are clandestine affairs considered more or less socially acceptable? I think the notion of monogamy for married men is not natural for many guys, and they only do it out of a lack of options and the poor logistics that come with work and the commute back to the burbs. A lot of guys work for success and use success to get that 2nd apartment. Men are success objects, and it used to be culturally accepted that we’d take advantage of that. In some places it still is.

I may very well be wrong about this, but I’ve always been under the impression that the red pill is the acknowledgement of hypergamy and learning how to control it to serve your ultimate biological imperative — reproduction. It seems like some of you see the red pill as life itself and not just a tool you use to achieve the purpose of life.

“Are clandestine affairs considered more or less socially acceptable?”

Not acceptable. However most people would not divorce over it because divorce is extremely stigmatized, for both sexes. At the same time our homes, families and society is set up in such a way that privacy is almost unheard of so the logistics of cheating, for either spouse, are extremely hard to navigate. Although I’m certain it does happen to some extent.

Some guys want a return to family, and seek red-pill knowledge to establish and then maintain it. I support that.

Some guys seek to use red-pill knowledge to rebalance the scales of the open, unmarried SMP towards their own hedonistic purposes. And why not? Pulling back the lens, a parasite on a parasite is good for the host.

Keep your bollocks. That’s the message: whatever you choose, keep your balls.

Yeah, I can see how somone who’s looking for it could choose to see those two things as contradictory. I did say that guys like me are conflicted. But hey, I’m vast, I contain multitudes.

If status-flaunting consumerism is partly to blame for our current mess, that feeds into why the commercial Rollo posted is so salient: it’s clear that women feel more exclusively entitled to it. And they feel men should be shamed for it.

There’s no such thing as an “ultimate biological directive.” Reproduction isn’t a directive, it’s an oddsmaker that determines which genes and innate behaviors most proliferate. If something tends to increase reproduction, it tends to become more common. That doesn’t mean you have some kind of internal “directive” to reproduce. It means the behaviors that are inherent and common across societies are there because they tend to result in reproduction. For example, raping women tends to increase reproduction in some situations, which is why it’s a universal behavior across cultures. But that doesn’t make it either good or an “ultimate biological… Read more »

Name any culture in which rape doesn’t exist from any point in human history. It’s considered a universal behavior by evolutionary psychologists:

And “nuh-uh” is universally considered a dumb argument.

Not each and every culture has been studied so how can “they” say its “universal”. But back in college we studied some tribes that supposedly had no rape and no word for rape either.

But more importantly, is this the same Mark Minter that you guys talk about here?

I agree with both Mark Minter and RedPillWifey. A married man (in a real marriage, 1.0 ) has a responsibility towards his wife to spend responsibly. This goes together with the wife’s commitments towards her husband, and is all part of the exchanges which make marriage work. This does not mean he needs her permission for discretionary purchases, but he also cannot spend freely just because he earns the money. I also agree with the other commenters who said that a big ticket purchase with no warning is never a good idea. If the woman has let herself go and… Read more »

False. Reproduction is the end goal of every living organism and everything that men and women do is motivated by the urge to reproduce. That means rapists are also motivated by it.

“Yes, this serves the feminine imperative, but within the bounds of traditional marriage, that is fine. Marriage is meant to serve both the masculine and feminine imperatives.” Marriage is meant to serve the offspring’s imperative and the imperatives of both parents become secondary at that point. The problem is that marriage to you people has no other purpose than self gratification of either spouse. You don’t know what “for the sake of the kids” means. Its a foreign concept to you. In this way you are more childish than your own children. ““While post-traumatic stress disorder was not a factor… Read more »

Adam,

I think it’s wrong to say someone is motivated to do everything for reproduction. They are not consciously or even subconsciously motivated (not necessarily), it’s just that they evolved to do things that lead to reproduction. Things like enjoyment of sex, gathering as many resources as possible, trying to look good, etc.

When you speak of goals, you can’t talk about natural processes, which aren’t persons with consciousness, and can’t have goals. Persons can have goals however. And those persons’ goals can sometimes go along behavior that leads to reproduction, and sometimes their goals go against that.

Blah123

Reproduction isn’t everything’s “goal” and it’s not the motivation for everything you do. It heavily influences what general behaviors are, but that doesn’t mean anything. Why do I like sex with women in their twenties with hourglass figures? At the end of the day, because I’m more likely to reproduce if I do. So what? I don’t have an urge to reproduce, I have an urge to do things that happen to increase my odds of reproduction. Your philosophy is self-evidently crazy. Why isn’t rape good, if your only purpose is to reproduce? Why don’t you abandon your family and… Read more »
