Our Sisters’ Keeper

“Men are to blame for women’s behavior. The Feminine Imperative only has as much power as men have allowed it to have. Hypergamy (open or otherwise) wouldn’t be the unrestrained social juggernaut it’s become without men’s complicity or accomplice.”

This quote is a go-to rationalization I read a lot from women just coming to terms with their first taste of the Red Pill. Unfortunately it’s also become a common refrain among certain sets in the manosphere; this rationale is usually particular to the moral absolutist strains of the manosphere.

When I read it from women it’s kind of ironic considering it usually comes from women who share in the same moral absolutism, who were “so different when they were in college”, but they’ve had their Epiphany and “got right with God.” They often cling to the Strong Independent® identity for themselves, but turn over a rock and show them the visceral, observable, ugly truth of unfettered Hypergamy and then, then it’s men’s partial or total responsibility for fostering women’s conditions.

It becomes men’s fault for not having the fortitude and presence of mind to correct them when they needed it – never mind the lifetime of Blue Pill conditioning that taught them judging women made them misogynistic assholes. I understand axiom that men and women get the men and women they deserve, but I wanted to explore this blame game dynamic a bit more.

From Validation Hunting & The Jenny Bahn Epiphany:

The Feminine Imperative relies on memes and conventions which shift the ownership of women’s personal liabilities for their sexual strategy to men.

When men are blamed for the negative consequences of women’s sexual strategy it helps to blunt the painful truths that Jenny Bahn is (to her credit) honestly confronting in her article at 30 years old and the SMV balance shifts towards enabling men’s capacity to effect their own sexual strategy.

As I was writing the Adaptations series it occurred to me that men on the ends of both the Alpha and Beta spectrum adapt their own sexual strategies in accord with the sexual marketplace and how that environment dictates the approach to what seems the most efficient.

As I stated in the last post, Hypergamy is nothing if not pragmatic, and efficient. However, men’s adapting to the “market” dictates of Hypergamy has to be equally efficient if that guy is to fulfill his own sexual imperative. Pragmatism doesn’t have time for how things should be. You make the best play with what’s in front of you.

Just to illustrate, for about 25 years or so, popular culture strongly pointed men towards a sexual strategy that could be defined as Beta Game. Play nice, respect a woman by default, be supportive of her self-image and ambitions to the sacrifice of your own, don’t judge her and do your utmost to identify with the feminine, was the call to action that, deductively, should make a man more attractive to a woman.

Furthermore, the intrasexual combat amongst men for sexual qualification was (at least ostensibly) focused on out-supporting, out-sympathizing, out-emoting and out-identifying with the feminine more so than other men. To set oneself apart from “other guys” the seemingly most strategic tact was to accept what women said they wanted from men. To pragmatically effect this men gladly joined the chorus of ridiculing conventional masculinity; denouncing and resisting the very element that would in fact have set them apart from the nebulous “other guys“.

So while this is an illustration of men’s deductive pragmatism in their adapting to the SMP, it’s also an illustration of how that adaptation can work against men’s best interests. Between the 80s, 90s and into the early 2000s this adaptation involved men following women’s lead to systematically turn conventional, positive masculinity into ridiculous or gay-associations of “macho-ness”. Later, defining the very idea of masculinity would progress from ambiguousness to women being the sole authority of what masculinity should mean to a man.

Women and Moral Agency

For as long as I’ve read and commented on Christo-Manosphere blogs a common thread has cropped up again and again; the debate as to whether women have the same moral agency or the same accountability for it as men. I’ve always found it fascinating because for all my dealing in cold harsh observable facts I’ve never paused to consider that women might have some excusable reason for their ethically challenged behavior. In my own estimate Hypergamy isn’t inherently bad or good – it just depends on whether you find yourself on the sharp end of it.

My point here isn’t to reheat that debate, but rather to see how it feeds into the rationale that men are in some way responsible for what contemporary women have become, and how they’ll progress if men don’t assume some responsibility for women’s behaviors.

Hypergamy is pragmatic, but it’s also inherently duplicitous. It’s unjust and unforgivable to a guy who doesn’t measure up to his burden of performance. When you consider the War Brides dynamic it’s downright reprehensible, but we have to also consider the pragmatism in that dynamic. From a male perspective we want to apply masculine concepts of honor and justice to women’s action – and in the past there was a high price to pay for infractions of it – but are we presuming our concept of justice is one that’s universally common to that of women?

Much in the same way we were Blue Pill conditioned to presume that our idealistic concept of love was mutually shared by women I would propose that men’s concepts of justice, honor, and (from an intrasexual perspective) respect are dissimilar from those of women.

For women, whatever actions serve Hypergamy are justifiable actions.

All that needs to be sorted out is reconciling those action with the concept of justice held by men. In the intersexual arena, what best serves men’s imperatives is justice. Up until the sexual revolution the balance between the sexes’ concepts of justice was mitigated by mutual compromise – each had something to lose and something to gain by considering the other sex’s imperatives.

For roughly the past 70 years this balance between the two concepts has listed heavily to the feminine. Our age has been defined by women’s unilateral and ubiquitous control of Hypergamy, and as such it is women’s sexual imperatives that is biologically and sociologically setting the course for future generations.

Along with that unprecedented control comes the prioritizing of women’s concept of justice above that of men’s. We can see this evidenced in every law, social convention or social justice movement that entitles women to rights and privileges that free them of any accountability for the negative consequence their Hypergamously based behavior would hold them to in a concept of justice that men would have.

I would also argue that women’s inherent solipsism reinforces this separation of concepts of justice between the sexes.

Rivelino had a good take on this on Twitter:

1 The woman is always the victim

2 Nothing is her fault

3 She is not responsible for her actions

4 A man is to blame

To which I’ll add a 5th: Any fault is always a ‘strength’.

The problem I see in assigning the blame of women’s behavior to men’s lack of control is that, presently, men have no real control nor does men’s concept of justice align with that of women. There’s a manosphere idiom that says women are the gatekeepers of sex while men are the gatekeepers of commitment. I’m not sure I completely agree with that.

That’s not to be defeatist, or an endorsement of a MGTOW course of action, but it is to say that if a man has neither the sex appeal to be a short term sexual prospect nor the provisioning appeal to be a long term investment, women feel entirely justified in acting in the best interests of Hypergamy and controlling his capacity for commitment as well.

And yes, that’s pretty fucked up if you, again, find yourself on the sharp end of it. Men’s adapting to the intersexual conditions set by women isn’t some deterministic prospect, but the idea that the mass majority of men would be responsible for the state women find themselves in is ludicrous. There will always be men willing to accept the sexual dictates of women because it serves their breeding imperatives. It’s good for him personally and it’s good for the species.

There will never be some global Lysistrata where men organize in solidarity, promising not to fuck another woman until they comply with demands that would place the Masculine Imperative above that of the feminine’s. Our own biology guarantees it.

Personal Responsibility

On a final note here, whenever I delve into the ethical implications of Red Pill awareness I invariably run into the personal responsibility equation. I do my best to make as coldly rational an observation of dynamics I see and allow my readers to make their own judgements. However, those observation are never intended to excuse the behaviors men and women find themselves prone to acting out.

There is always a want on the part of either sex to see their concept of justice enacted on those who would act against it. Thus you get honor killing in the Muslim world, and you have men’s access to the DNA testing of children they suspect aren’t their own denied in the “best interest of the child.”

So are men to blame for the conditions they find their women in? Are we our sisters’ keepers, hamstrung by our own culpability to actually help them be better women? Or do they bear the responsibility to conform to our perspective of justice and police the worst impulses of a Hypergamy most are only peripherally aware of?

@Jeremy So your mother was very likely not deliberately expending extra energy on attempting to make your entire life miserable. You would be… surprised what lengths abusive parents will go to. As part of her need for complete control, my mother would limit me to two 15 minute phone calls per day. She would enforce this while she was at work. She would call periodically throughout the afternoon, and if she couldn’t get through, she would set an auto dialer that she would use as a timer. This would work her up in to more and more anger (you know,… Read more »

Earlier upthread we had a discussion about how we might lower the age of the epiphany phase to a reasonable level (i.e. earlier than riiight before the wall). The long and the short of it was that it seems like we would need to make strong societal disincentives for women delaying marriage, relationships, and so on, likely by convincing men to discount older women as being at all relationship material. Rightly, most people thought this was unlikely to happen. I’m not sure if this is any more tenable, but we could probably accomplish this more thoroughly and organically by removing… Read more »

Is it any more just for a man to impregnate a woman and leave her and the child to fend for themselves than for a woman to deceive or coerce a man into raising another man’s child? No. Justice is not a concept that was created to serve the male sexual strategy and it is not anyone’s tool or weapon.

It is, however, equally violated by both sexual strategies (i.e. promiscuous behavior).

All I am saying here is that women know right from wrong just like we do but they are much better at (and suceptible to) deception in general…especially self deception (hampster). This is why society falls apart when women are totally unrestrained and allowed to pursue their selfish, carnal desires, which are always self-justified by some nonsensical ideology designed to make them feel good about doing evil. However, they are perfectly capable of understanding what is truly fair and equitable when pressed. They don’t have their own version of justice and neither do we.

It marked the rise of human civilization because it is a better deal for individuals and a more successful means of reproducing for the species.

@Mike I think you’re riffing on a real dynamic here, as well as pointing out – as many here have – how a monogamous society tends to be more stable and prosperous. What I think you fail to see is that the male sexual strategy, as you outline it, isn’t really a possibility for the majority of men either in or out of their sexual prime, whereas the sexual strategy of women is attainable for the great majority of women during their (admittedly brief) sexual prime. Because of this, an enforced monogamy creates reproductive opportunities for the average man in… Read more »

It’s easy to see why monogamy made the most sense. First, the women were more or less treated as property anyway, basically sold from the fathers to the husbands. If you have wide open competition to mate, the betas will just gang up to kill the poon alphas anyway, then the new poon alpha will be killed, etc. Meanwhile, while all of this is going on, the Philistines are building an army ready to take over Israel where half the men are dead over poon. So poon was heavily regulated. Now a lot of societies probably gave veto power to… Read more »

I’ve thought about the end game for a while, having been Purple>Maroon>Full Red Pill since about 1995, progressively moving forward. I’ve traveled a few places in the world, all of the US, and have known just about every culture and people that a large US metro area can permit, from language, to food, to religion, to dating, to marriage. I’ve concluded the following: 1. Almost all of Christianity will be feminized (ala Episcopal church) and become full-on witchery basically, lesbian marriages, all women in charge, etc. The exception being beta-stations like large “emergent” “seeker friendly” churches. Regardless, the: 2. Marriage… Read more »

Adultery is called cheating because marriage is a contract, a deal…and used to be a good one for the vast majority of people, at least in its unperverted form with the husband in the dominant/masculine role and the wife in the submissive/feminine role. True justice simply enforced the provisions of the contract. You break the contract/cheat, you suffer the consequences. What we have today with feminism, the FI, open hypergamy, etc. is not women rejecting the institution of marriage as a construct of the male sexual strategy but women trying to get more out of the deal for themselves at… Read more »

@enrique432 Muslims with money behave exactly like Christians with money. They become moderate and allow women more freedom. As soon as there’s a large Muslim middle class, all that Sharia law will go out the window. It’ll never take hold in the US due to the fact that we actually have a middle class already in place.

@enrique432: That is a pretty bleak vision. I hadn’t thought of it before but I see how the FI could be fueling the growth of Islam. It doesn’t help fundamentalist Christianity because all of the feminized, federally compliant, 501c3 churches serve as a straw man for the actual teachings of Christ. Also, while the Bible clearly teaches that the husband is the head of the wife just as Christ is the head of the Church, the injunction to forgive as we were forgiven does not generally appeal to the disenfranchised and enraged seeking retribution against their enemies.

You are correct.
Muslim women are becoming worse than western women, why do you think Muslim men are blowing themselves up? They gave up on worldly Muslim women ,they are not virgin any more and even if they are virgin, their pussies are stitched by “secret” clinics.

@Mike,

Men’s attractiveness to women is zero sum, as is everything for women. Women are always going to want “Brad Pitt.” They are always going to want who they perceive as the top guys and disregard the rest. Pumping iron or men developing “game” will not be appreciated by women. They are hardwired to compete over what they perceive to be a fixed pie.

Hey Mike, “….does not generally appeal to the disenfranchised and enraged seeking retribution against their enemies.” You mean the dumb-asses that don’t like free will. Problem is Christ tried to give man free will. The Church realizes that parishioners can’t handle free will. So they did a bait and switch. “Nothing has ever been more insufferable for man than freedom!” Here’s a good read for you.

Blue pill thinking indeed runs very deep. Here’s a recent example: Human beings today are much more sexually attractive than they used to be, thanks to much improved standards of health, hygiene, and grooming; but this seems not to have led to any actual increase in coitus. A hundred years ago there was no Brazilian waxing, most people got enough hot water to bathe in only once a week or less, skin diseases were rampant, and there was no proper detergent to get clothes clean: yet not the fitchew nor the soiléd horse went to’t with a more riotous appetite… Read more »

“Hypergamy” is merely one aspect of Social Darwinism. It is a cruel fact of your life. Unfortunately for you, your birth occurred after a period of relative abundance, racially, economically, socially, and sexually. “Hypergamy” is the sexual politics and competition that is merely one level of Social Darwinism, which exists within the outer level of Darwinism. And Darwinism is a rough and ready competition, tooth and claw, from the molecular, into the corpus, manifested in the social, and extant in the cultural and the geopolitical. From the NeoRx writer Outsideness: “Social Darwinism’ is merely Darwinism, and more exactly consistent Darwinism.… Read more »

@Sun Wukong Not true at all. Upper class Muslims wives’ have more freedom to purchase things, and larger agency over assets, but as far as cheating, or their daughters dating, not even close to what you say. ESPECIALLY in upper-class (Iranian often, as well as Jordanian) Hijab-wearing families. Those girls DO NOT DATE, only to marry if anything, and do not have sex.

There’s always going to be Betas waiting to pick up the pieces after a girl’s gotten off the cock carousel. There’s always going to be an Alpha cock carousel for just about every girl to ride on.

I think derbyshire doesn’t understand what sorts of things actually lead to ‘coitus.’ How you can connect and vibe with someone, resonate with their eyes and voice and movements, and fall into an ecstatic trance where all that’s left of their presence is a shining halo effect that fills your senses.

That’s what we mean when we say monogamy benefits men’s sexual strategy more than than it does women’s.” This is why I call the Manosphere “The Beta’s Lament”. You see, formerly Betas could use provisioning and protection to make women settle down and fuck them without women having any real attraction to them. I wonder, how would men enjoy a social order in which they were required to commit to monogamy with women they aren’t… Read more »
