The Fog of Menopause

eggs

Strange things happen to women at the onset of menopause. Most mature men who’ve experienced it firsthand can attest to the obvious symptoms: Hot flashes, loss of libido, vaginal dryness, mood swings and irritability, but do have a quick look at the list I’ve linked here to get a better understanding of just how nature eventually punishes women as the last of their eggs decay to a fine powdery dust.

Change in body odor, brittle nails, incontinence, weight gain, irregular heartbeat, depression, anxiety, panic disorder, fatigue, allergies, osteoporosis – these late life symptoms are hardly something most men give any consideration for when they’re contemplating a lifetime of marriage with a woman.

Most of the manosphere will tell you marriage is simply never worth the financial risk, or that a woman always has the option to detonate the marriage and take the kids at a moments notice, but how often do you read a Red Pill guy tell you about how the hot piece of ass who became your long term ONEitis will eventually experience some (possibly all) of the 34 Symptoms of Menopause roughly 20-25 years after you say ‘I do’ (assuming it lasts so long)?

Those symptoms, in varying combinations, make for some very disconcerting prospects for a guy who’s been a keen supplicant supportive Beta for the entirety of his marriage, believing that the privilege of being married means he’s getting his wife’s sexual best when it matters most. It kind of puts things into a lifetime perspective when you consider that Mr. Dependability (Beta Bucks) gets to accommodate the symptoms of menopause while Bad Boys enjoyed her sexual best before he arrived on the set.

Add to this that at least 66-70% of (at least western) women will become overweight and/or morbidly obese during their lives and it doesn’t bode well for the enduring SMV that most unassuming men are banking on for a long term marriage with the 28-30 year old dream girl who’s now suddenly gotten right with herself enough to want to get married.

Side note: it’s interesting how closely female-male bone density decay comparison charts mirrors my SMV graph.

Nature Abhors a Vacuum Barren Womb

There’s some very brutal evolutionary truth behind the biological realities of menopause.

Anyone familiar with The Red Queen by Matt Ridley or The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins will get the gist of menopause’s intrinsic message – survival-side evolution essentially gives up on women once they reach a point where they are no longer reproductively viable.

Hormone imbalances, immunodeficiency, nutritional, vitamin and mineral (most notably calcium) deficiencies, neurological disorders triggered by plummeting estrogen levels, and many more physical debilitations make it obvious that a woman who’s reached the age when she ceases to be a reproductive asset becomes a species-collective liability. Unless she has some honored status or useful, learned wisdom to pass on, she becomes dead weight to a human tribe’s interests in survival efficiency and propagation.

While it’s a testament to our success as a social species that we’ve achieved a capacity to prolong our lives, there are certain glaring evidences of how our physiology evolved for efficiency within set frames of time during a (previously average) lifespan. The physical changes that come with the onset of menopause and the constancy of presenting the appearance of youth and vigor for women is one such example, post-menopausal hormone therapy another.

So too is the convenient timing of the myth of the biological clock and the social conventions structured around it to provide a woman with the maximum amount of time to sort out her hypergamous options. It’s no coincidence that women’s Epiphany Phase is concurrent with the latter stages of her fertility window (27-32 y.o.)  – the social conventions of the Feminine Imperative are nothing if not efficient at maximizing women’s sexual strategy potential.

At every occasion, in every form of media, a rapidly westernizing, feminine-primary social order seeks to reshape and deemphasize the physical realities women of previous eras had the benefit of a socialized understanding (if not a collective wisdom) to accept and prepare for. In an age of hormone therapy, sperm banks and ovum freezing as part of a company benefits program, the latent message to women is that they need not concern themselves with these previously life-fulfillment limiting physical realities to coincide with their personal choices.

The Feminine Imperative will go to great lengths, socially and legally, to convince contemporary women that they aren’t in fact tied to the realities of their physical conditions. In a social sense, the incentive is the same “have it all” mentality with the prerequisite social conventions in place to lessen the blow when women realize they can’t actually realize what the feminine-primary advertising suggested.

In a physical sense the Feminine Imperative will gratuitously incentivize funding for every feminine-specific medical condition while simultaneously deemphasizing (to the point of encouraging indifference) any male-specific disease, legally, financially and socially. It’s a testament to the efforts of the imperative that modern women statistically outlive men in spite of the physical debilitations associated with menopause.

But for all this effort in engineering generations of women to become über-women, the same pesky, evolved limitations still influence their decision making.

Echoes of The Wall

New commenter (and I use the term loosely), unilantern, graciously provides us with some insight on this with her comments on The Wall:

This is a myth, i can tell you how i know. Any man would pass up a 20 year old in shape woman who is strong and athletic for a 30 something feminine type in a dress who is willing to submit.

Its the same reason men pass up pretty young women from a lower social class bracket in favour of more mature well spoken mutton.

So keep up with the clock ticking nonsense, and remember time waits for no man.

I will let you know how i used to think for most of my 20s! And how i think now.

I used to think, do i have to wait until im too old and tied to feel like going about the world to be able to do so without sexual harassment, do i have to be nearing the menopause to no longer be seen as here for reproductive meat.

Then at age 30, and now at age 33 i look back at all the years of youth and energy and wish i could have had the type of conditional freedom i have now then. Women have to be too old to have the energy to do anything before they get their body for themselves and by the time it comes its not worth having, having to compete with men for your own body is the real reality of women, and yes time is ticking.

I bet i will be there at 40 with unconditional freedom, as in no harassment no matter what i wear or do!

Tick tok!

I found unilantern’s (perhaps drunken) comment’s particularly ironic in light of all the attention generated by various staged and / or edited viral videos recently of women being cat-called while walking for longer than most women’s work day in, shall we say, less than reputable neighborhoods. Despite an obvious effort in preserving the necessary female-victimization trope, a certain demographic of post-menopausal women suffering from confirmation bias (and probably some post-menopausal neuroses) genuinely want to believe these pseudo-documentaries at face value – even after they’ve been falsified and confirmed as such.

Ironic, because unilantern’s rationalizations and denial of The Wall are rooted precisely in the designed social conventions the Feminine Imperative would have both sexes agree upon. There’s never really a Wall per se when women are convinced they can ‘have it all’ socially, physically and psychologically. And again, the latent purpose of this social convention is to convince women (and to evoke agreement among men) that they are exempt from the physical realities that confine them at various phases of their maturation.

SMV in Girl-World

Women want to be men. This is the legacy that a since-decayed feminist social impetus has imparted to the generations of both men and women who’ve come after the Gloria Steinem’s got married themselves and blew away. Women need to be the men of tomorrow. I suppose I should’ve seen this messaging long before, and in honesty I think the greater part of Matrix thinking revolves around role reversal, but this is more than reversal. Women want to be men.

If a man can wait until his maturation develops, his achievements are more actualized and his SMV peaks at 38-40, equalism says “why shouldn’t you Man-Girl?”

As I work my way through the second draft of my next book, I’m beginning to see and build upon the real-world physical underpinnings women are subject to which motivate both the social buffers and the reasoning for their moving into the various mental phases of maturity I outline in the Preventative Medicine series of posts.

At an earlier phase, women claim to deplore their sexual objectification while young and subjected to the lascivious attentions of the mythical Male Gaze. This is recently decried by the cat-call videos I mentioned above, but yet before these videos were ever contrived, older women, women in a later phase of maturity, had already decried how horrible it is to be “invisible to men” and how they yearn to hold male attention as they once did in their youth:

Women feel invisible to the opposite sex at the age of 51, it emerged yesterday.

A detailed study of 2,000 women revealed a large percentage felt they no longer received the level of attention they once did after hitting 51.

Many even went as far as to admit they felt ‘ignored’.

The women claimed their confidence plummeted after hitting 50 and blamed greying hair, having to to wear glasses or even struggling to find fashionable clothes.

The lifestyle study, commissioned by herbal remedies company, A.Vogel, also found more than two thirds of women over 45 had walked into a room and felt ‘completely unnoticed’ by the opposite sex.

And this is yet again another conflict between what the social conventions of the Feminine Imperative has taught women and the physical realities of the conditions they wishfully hope they can be exempted from. When a man makes women aware of The Wall, intentional or innocently, the response is usually one of “Well, you men get fat and old and insecure later in life too”, and that may very well be for the majority of men. However, the differences is men don’t have a life-time of social infrastructure to convince and disappoint themselves that they can ever be exempt from a lack of performance.

No social order has ever sold men the idea that they can simply ‘have‘ it all.

Keep it up Rollo. The best way to approach all these problems is to unplug men from the matrix. The beta men are what give solidification to the myths of the Feminine Imperative. If beta men didn’t buy into those myths too, and weren’t so thirsty and self-degrading — i.e., if they had a clue — where would women have to turn to?

I think all this “fog of menopause” stuff is pure hype, perpetrated, by the way, by women making excuses for their own slovenliness and laziness. I’m post-menopausal, and menopause for me was just a series of annoying but far-from-debilitating hot flashes. No, I don’t look like a teen-ager, but, since I get a lot of exercise and don’t overeat (I’m also quite tall), I’ve kept my slender figure, and I still look pretty darned good in a pair of skinny jeans.

She doesn’t complain about it too much, but at 54 it’s kind of wrecked her. It doesn’t seem to occur to Charlotte that maybe she’s just lucky? That menopause might be worse for some women than others? Ditto on her weight etc – we now know such things are driven in large part by genetics. You can bet… Read more »

@Mark Minter

Would you mind to post references to literature published by Simon Shepard? I’d be interested in reading about ‘proclamation of escalation’ and such.

Think I got a reverse one some days ago by a lady at work from whom I get lots of mixed signals and accordingly keep my distance, i.e., as consequence of reading this and similar blogs, I avoid being in her group of orbiters.

Thanks.

Emma the Emo, “Btw, are shoes really nothing to worry about? Would sneakers do? Heels really hurt to walk in …” Sneakers, sandals, and other flat footwear are perfect. Men don’t give a shit about shoes (they never look down that far anyway), and when your feet are in the air, it is better for your toes to be nice and straight. You should stay away from high heels because, for example: http://www.womenshealthmag.com/health/high-heels When you are standing on the balls of your feet, through your own strength, nothing is damaged, because everything is tight, because you are pulling yourself up… Read more »

Very interesting read:
http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-London/2014/12/04/The-Sexodus-Part-1-The-Men-Giving-Up-On-Women-And-Checking-Out-Of-Society

It basically covers the war on men, or better said, the war on betas.

Read the article from an Alpha-Beta dichotomy perspective and you’ll begin to understand that women are not deliberately shunning all men, only the betas. This reminds me of the evolutionary instability a commentator said in regards to only the top 20% of men getting sex from women. The FI is created to limit men, obviously, but it is selective on who it chooses to shun. This can only last so long before it gives out.

The center cannot hold.

@kfg: Thanks. I even have the website bookmarked but never finished reading it through (It’s ‘Sheppard’ with 2 P’s BTW). Sad that they got themselves into hot water with the UK ‘authorities’. Bought his 2 books available for Kindle – hope they’ll make ‘Tyranny of Ambiguity’ available so I can buy it. @Rollo: Thanks for yet another superb article. Just bought your book BTW as a gift to a rather blue-pill guy whose in the business of marriage counselling from a Catholic perspective, together with his wife. Am looking forward to 2nd edition and new book. Any release dates yet?… Read more »

“Because men learn, by experience and at a very early age, that what they can have is what they can take, and thus the natural limits of what can be taken.”

Why not take it all?

You’ve written previously about how women’s sexual desire is driven by their fertility cycle, and now you discuss the impacts menopause. I would be interested in your thoughts on how pregnancy and its aftermath affect things. My wife, for example, is still breast-feeding, and I’m not sure she actually has gone back to being fertile yet.

Im coming up to 35 this year! Apparently 35 is the age of fertility sourment. On post menopausal women and attention. What happens to many women is they go through that young phase of wanting to go about life without all that attention. They get pressure to dress in certain ways from the fashion industry, they get more attention and older women tell them to be grateful of it while at the same time envying and resenting them. Many (but not all) go along with it and make the most of the attention because the alternative is having to put… Read more »

at some point, the women over 50 screaming, “you go girl, and we still got it,” will come to realize that “we still got it,” actually means, “i’m a cum sponge.”

thirsty betas would stick their dix into an electrical outlet if the shock felt like pussy. these women don’t understand that and mistake the attention (cock offers) as ‘power’ & self-esteem gasoline.

dealing with young sluts is fun.
dealing with MILF sluts is a headache.
dealing with granny (post 50 yrs old) sluts is simply a cardio workout or dick-motion practice.

I’m a man who never made the grade in his younger years, never acquiring a good enough job or large enough paycheck to attract a desirable partner. I spent most of my life being the guy who, although educated and not bad looking, was always the one ignored by quality women, instead ending up with a string of fakes, flakes, users and abusers … so … I couldn’t give a crap less about any of the problems women face … instead I’m LMAO that time and fate has finally caught up with them 🙂

It sounds like the menopause you’re describing would best describe my grandmother’s experience than my own. I’m 50 and kickbox. I walked into a Best Buy the other day and five men at the front stopped and stared or tried to look without their women catching them. They were younger in their thirties if looked like. I am happy to be ending my fertility and I always wonder who are the women who need help with getting wet as they get older. My libido outpaces my husband who’s 48. I’m adventurous sexually while he’s afraid he,’ll “hurt me.” My menopause… Read more »

Hey Sable,

Not letting yourself go as you age is a feminine virtue.

Not letting menopause get to you is a virtue.

Congratulations.

For the win. Keep it up.

Rollo, I am one of the rare women who actually enjoys your blog and much of your material. I have learned a lot more about men (as well as women) in the short time since I’ve come across your work. I have even come to appreciate my fab husband even more than before, and that’s something to say. For that, I thank you. However, this post is sub-par. One word to summarize it – childish Schadenfreude. You position yourself as the “rational male”, a rock against women’s raging emotions. Facts don’t give a fuck about feelings after all, do they?… Read more »

before the pill, women were pregnant pretty much non-stop since puberty,

Lol at your steaming puddle of feminist cowshit. Your ignorance is huge, or you are blatantly gaslighting.

Questions:
Who was Margaret Sanger and what did she do? How long have Total fertility Rates (TFR) been declining in the US?

We know about oxytocin. We know that in general women are more emotionally driven than men, even though men are the true romantics. We don’t care that you or other women are concerned about reality making men more practical about women.

The red pill signal propagates.

You prove my point, thanks.
Regarding my comments about pregnancies before the Pill, this was meant as a broad generalization, not a breakdown by decades in the last 100 years in the Western world. Women in developing countries where contraception isn’t freely available are pregnant much of their fertile time.

You prove my point, thanks. You are hardly the first feminist to troll this site, and won’t be the last. If you have actually read all the essays from 2010 to 2014, and comments then you’ve seen more than a few comments from women who are just trolling / jamming the site. Rollo warns that it can be a hot kitchen. You’re being treated far better than any sane man who foolishly attempts to comment at a feminist site. Even sensitive, caring, feminist-ally new-age men get banned from those places if they slip up and fail to be sufficiently submissive… Read more »
