Peak Hypergamy

Peak_Hypergamy

Commenter Divided Line came on with such a strong take on Our Sisters’ Keeper I had to riff on it:

Hypergamy is a given and it’s not going anywhere. But even if women’s sexuality is biologically rooted, their rationalizations for it aren’t possible without a compliant culture. So long as women are the damsels, the victims who are put upon by the cruel and all powerful patriarchy, so long as men are perceived to be powerful and free in a way that they clearly are not nor have ever been, open hypergamy is possible. After all, any guy who points it out or complains about it is branded an embittered loser, a misogynist, a creep, and so on, but I wonder to what degree this will change as red pill awareness spreads and penetrates the mainstream. I mean, how long do we think that men will go on smiling and nodding when it’s increasingly the case that more and more of us can see what bullshit all of this is?

What it makes me think of is Alana Massey’s Dickonomics article.

If you haven’t already read it, she goes on and on about how male attention is abundant and cheap, proving that women are well aware of what men who bother with online dating realized from the start. She recognizes the extreme degree of power this gives her before hamstering it away with this:

“Some will read my gleeful rejections on the many faces I encounter on Tinder as evidence of a disturbing uptick in malevolent, anti-male sentiments among single straight women. It is not. It is evidence of us arriving nearer to gender equilibrium where men can no longer happily judge the clear and abundant photos and carefully crafted profiles of women but become incensed when they take the opportunity to do the same.”

How many times have you seen this? All venality, cruelty, selfishness, indifference, etc is justified, of course, because men have it so good, women have it so bad, blah blah etc. So she can write something like this and the sisterhood will nod their heads and no doubt be able to ignore doubt or second thoughts in regards to their atrocious, destructive, and cruel treatment of the opposite sex. Women, like people who rationalize generally, tend to think in bogus bumper sticker one liners because they provide excuses not to think for themselves. And men, after all, just saunter about in the patriarchal torture dungeon of a society free and powerful, and pluck women from the trees before discarding them like jizz towels, so naturally, why should she consider their complexity as human beings or ever recognize what a rotten, horrible human being she is? They’re free to retaliate against men for women’s imaginary oppression.

But how long will they be able to keep employing these rationalizations and getting away with it if the public dialog changes? And it has already begun to change. I’ve watched it happen over the last year. You see more and more disclaimers in articles which appeal to the you-go-girl crowd. It really does seem as if there is a growing awareness that they are full of shit, or at the very least, that maybe there are moral complexities and obligations that come with female social power, to the degree that they are even willing to recognize that power.

Hypergamy isn’t going anywhere, but since men increasingly are comparing notes now and voicing their criticism of women’s bullshit (at least online), maybe it really isn’t the case that women are going to be able to continue this bullshit with public sanction. Is this wishful thinking?

I’ve made the case in several other blog comment and forum threads, but it’s getting almost too easy to point out women’s overt embrace of Open Hypergamy. There was a time – only 4 short years ago – that I would be run up the flagpole for publishing my observations on the ins and outs of women’s sexual strategy. Women in the blogosphere hated the fact that I was exposing their Game. They didn’t like the idea that I was informing men about the plan women had for them or the part they played, and by informing them it represented a fundamental threat to the long term success (and essentially their long term security) of that plan.

If you’re feeling nostalgic you can skim through the comments of posts like Wait For It? or The Threat:

Nothing is more threatening yet simultaneously attractive to a woman than a man who is aware of his own value to women.

[…]

Race to Awareness

Because of women’s relatively short window of peak sexual viability it is imperative that men be as unaware of their slower, but progressively increasing SMV for as long as possible in order for them to achieve the prime directive of female hypergamy; realize the best genetic options and the best provisioning options she has the capacity to attract in that peak window. If Men become aware of their SMV before a woman can consolidate on her options with monogamous commitment her sexual strategy is defeated.

The mistake (and the binary retort) is to think this need for contrivances was concocted in whole as some grand sisterhood conspiracy. This just proves an ignorance of social constructs. For a social contrivance to be such, it necessitates being repeated by society WITHOUT a formal conception – meaning we learn the contrivance from seeing it, internalizing it and repeating it ourselves without forethought. The best social contrivances are inconspicuous and rarely questioned because they’ve been learned without having been formally taught. This is why I think encouraging men NOT to bother trying to understand women is in itself a social convention. Don’t look at that man behind the curtain, just accept it for what it is, enjoy the show, you’re better off that way, the Mighty Oz has spoken.

This is the threat that Game represents to the feminine imperative. Widely shared, objective assessments of Men’s SMV and how it develops is the antithesis of the female sexual strategy. Women’s greatest fear is that they could become the ‘selected’ instead of the ‘selectors’.

Bear in mind I wrote this years before I published Preventive Medicine. This was also only a few years before I formally identified women’s embrace of openly, proudly, flaunting their sexual strategy. I can remember being soundly rebuked by women denying they adhered to anything so callous as an Alpha Fucks / Beta Bucks schedule with regard to men.

There was a certain nervous undertone that accompanied their shaming that revealed how protective they were of keeping the plan as ambiguous and secretive as possible from men in general. For every acknowledgement of the biological influences of Ovulatory Shift behaviors by these women there was always an obligatory, “yes, but, people are people, we’re above all that, it’s what’s on the inside that counts, NAWALT” intended to offset the ugliness of it.

Now, the same women who adamantly denied what their functionally opportunistic concept of love represents; the same women who rejected the idea of an Alpha Fucks / Beta Bucks sexual strategy openly and triumphantly boast about it. It’s become a source not only of agency, but a proud admission of perceived power on the part of women.

At some point the social impetus behind Open Hypergamy became so blatantly obvious they could no longer deny the truth of it. The Genie was out and it was more advantageous to not only to welcome it, but to brandish and profit from forcing men to accept it. Thus we have Open Hypergamy both subtly and triumphantly waved in our mainstream advertising, our pop-culture, our social media, our music and even the movies we take our kids to enjoy.

To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle.
– George Orwell

I expect most of the worst aspects of Open Hypergamy (Overt Hypergamy if you prefer) are fairly obvious to my readers. Even the now the subtle influence in the media and advertising becomes not-so-subtle for men accustomed to seeing things with a Red Pill Lens. We can only shake our heads and hope that so blatant a confession of relishing power in Hypergamy on the part of unaware men will come to light for them.

Divided Line raises a very poignant observation – what’s next? What’s the natural progression?

Hypergamy isn’t going anywhere, but since men increasingly are comparing notes now and voicing their criticism of women’s bullshit (at least online), maybe it really isn’t the case that women are going to be able to continue this bullshit with public sanction. Is this wishful thinking?

I think there is a caveat we have to address here first. With Red Pill awareness it gets very easy to slide down the slippery slope and believe that ‘all women’ will have some equal capacity to enforce the worst of Open Hypergamy on men in general. Yes, in a westernizing context, women have an almost unilaterally state-backed influence on enforcing men’s de facto participation in Hypergamy by order of degree. However, it’s important to remember that men’s willing participation or coercion in it is still (as yet) limited by women’s capacity to attract and involve them.

Men want (and yes, need) sex and will find behavioral and psychological adaptations and workarounds to get it. That may be MGTOW, prostitution, porn or an as yet developed alternative of virtual sex. It may be Red Pill awareness and applied Game, it may be a self-aligning push to pander to the most extreme elements of the Alpha Fucks or Beta Bucks ends of Hypergamy, or it may be upping fame or a false social proof (via personality politicking on social media) that makes for men’s future adaptations.

Peak Hypergamy

I’m not a prognosticator about such things, but I can make logical estimates based on observations. One thing is for certain, and I discussed this with Niko in our talk, intersexual politicking and the condition of women will reach a ‘Peak Hypergamy’ state in the not too distant future. There will indeed come a point when even Blue Pill men will be unable to ignore so gross a power imbalance between the sexes.

There’s been some debate as to whether there’s some socially conscious ‘marriage strike’ in the manosphere for some time, and I think marriage statistics being at an all time low bear much of this out. I don’t think this is the result of some nascent MGTOW awakening, but rather a deductive, peripheral, general awareness men have of Open Hypergamy in our current social order at the moment.

Just as a last aside here, let me state that I am aware of the more militant, absolutists of MGTOW belaboring the idea that ‘the juice aint worth the squeeze’ and the dangers of even approaching a woman risk his being accused of sexual harassment, much less having recreational sex with her leaving a man open to post-sex regret-rape allegation. I get that. It’s part of the ascension toward a ‘Peak Hypergamy’ social state. My question is whether these men would find it worth their while to engage with women if their fears were removed in a post Peak State social order? Some may even live long enough to have to figure that out for themselves.

I think Divided Line is correct – there will come a state when Open Hypergamy’s power consolidation becomes too obvious and the social mechanics the Feminine Imperative has used to ensure that consolidation will be too much for women to maintain as a collective. Then what? What will women rationalize for themselves when they realize their monster has become too much?

I’ll reiterate it again; socially, it didn’t take long for women to transition from a secretive Hypergamy to an open display of it. The same women who called AF/BB the imaginings of misogynous men only 4 years ago are now proudly claiming it as truth (they knew all along) and a means to a power they’ve always had and should openly use.

The social, political and personal stress point of Peak Hypergamy is coming. It may take a bit longer, but there will come a point where even women will be forced to recognize the consequences of legislating their hubris.

The basic problem is ; Hypergamy is its own agency. It operates so basically that even the female concious mind is only vaugely aware of its directives. Hypergamy jumps, and the female emotional state asks ‘how high’. At which point the mouth is engaged to align the two forces with whatever social mores exist around her. I dislike the melodramatic associations, but Hypergamy really is akin to a Manchurian Candidate type situation. The woman is the programmed assasin, the target is some unfortunate dude is unaware of how much damage she’s capable of, and when the rifle fires and the… Read more »

I think they won’t willingly abandon their peak. They’ll justify it as being “good for men”, meaning it somehow benefits us, and they’ll try to consolidate as best they can with all the white knights elected to office. Oh sure, there will be lots of alpha widows who are unhappy, but they’ll get their cash and prizes somehow. I would say that the only solution to hypergamy is individually, calmly, and openly confronting the destructive side of it and exposing it to the perpetrator.

“Complaceny will kill you” applies here. Western women are becoming complacent in their open hypergamy because the mass media is supporting them. You’ll know that the end of it is nigh when Hollywood releases a movie that, as its central theme, openly mocks modern female hypergamy.

Regarding the socially conscious and coordinated action (conspiracy) vs. general awareness (consensus) argument: In the vast majority of cases, what looks like conspiracy and coordination is really just consensus. Similar people, with similar needs/priorities, backgrounds and values, see various issues similarly, react to market forces similarly, and come up with similar programs and solutions. That doesn’t rule out occasional minor conspiratorial actions in support of the consensus (e.g. trying to deny some data showing really inconvenient truths or shout down and defame persons revealing those truths) but these minor conspiracies are quite tiny in comparison to the overarching consensus.

Also the girls that went to school with me were married some just after highschool others by 20-22, the carousel is small here and the riders are known by what they are. I think it is a result of more masculine men, her highschool sweetheart is actually capable of getting her wet; conservative culture; economic necessity, a couple is financially stronger; the absence of the “will go find myself” mindset, if your husband satisfy you in your ovulation why risk the relationship to get some strange dick; and other things.

In my opinion the current climate of rampant Hypergamy has a lot to do with men giving themselves a low value. The loser being chosen by some perceived goddess is a common blue pill romantic fantasy. It goes further to beta men giving her all upfront for free. And in my opinion even wanting that 9.5 to show her off and demonstrate the man’s value through her is part of that thinking. Being conscious about your own value and dealing with your offers in a way preserving it’s value through scarcity are the counters, defeating the female sexual strategy. So… Read more »

Why should AF:BB stop at Wedlock? Last weekend (as I mentioned at Dal’s) I boned-up on what I take to be the extreme of Hypergamy – something which clearly would not be to every woman’s taste or ability – namely Cuckoldry, which one might describe as post single-dom carousel-riding. The husbands gain a masochistic yet intense sense of shame yet mixed with intense sexual desire; the women screw with their twenty-something fuck-buddies or en-masse with men beyond the concept of well-endowed and doing things that they say they would never do with their husbands.

The rampant stories of cuckholdry, swinging (sadly I know a few swingers) and cheating makes me wonder whether we’ve reached peak Beta Bucks.

There’s a study that points out exactly what you are saying. The more prosperous the society, the greater the sex differences. There’s more freedom for women to exploit their sexual strategy in the “West”.

I think it is more than social constructs that support the prime directive of female hypergamy. Biology works against a man’s awareness of the female sexual strategy. While a 22 year old female is aware of her shining star SMV in part because of all the same aged and older males vying for her attention, few males are similarly positioned at that age. We don’t have an awareness of what we haven’t experienced. For my own self, I was tall, gangly, poor, had bad teeth and no car. Had I a vision of the man I was to become in… Read more »

What’s the benefit to women to making hypergamy covert again?

Isn’t overt/open hypergamy a completely rational decision?

In open hypergamy, alpha’s and young women win…is that not the point of hypergamy to begin with?

Assuming the sexual market is always seeking balance, as all markets are, then it’s likely a product of too much beta provisioning.

The goldfish will grow to match the size of his environment.

1. Too many men.

2. Guaranteed BB for women. This is from beta’s marrying/supporting women, and from government legislation demanding it.

If men check out of society, the government will legislate their checking back in to maintain BB. Where does that lead? Socialism? Communism? Slavery?

How much of that does the western world have already?

Two reasons I think women are now following a AF/BB/AF protocol: a. women (aged 35-50), in our sexualized culture, do hang a significant element of their self-esteem on their ongoing sexual attractiveness. They have been taught and they want to prove that “they’ve still got it”, even after they’ve lost sight (in the rearview mirror) of the Wall. They do envy and they do compete (in their social construct) with pre-Wall women, and especially those Empowerrrrrred Gurrrls still in their pre-Wall/AF/promiscuous phase. b. it’s way too easy to take advantage of a BB man who thinks she loves him “just… Read more »

Peak Hypergamy has already happened in history.

A good example is Lebanon 1920 to present.
In 1920 Beruit was called the Paris of the Mediterranean. It had a society and culture on par with most of Europe. Women wore the latest fashions while strolling past sidewalk cafe’s.

Demographics in 1926:
Christian 84%
Muslim 16%

By 1985 those Demographics switched with muslims at 80%+.
And of course Lebanon was a Democracy with majority vote rule… so… you can guess what happened.

The implications to society if you don’t make your women have children are really quite startling if you are a student of history.

It’s a little silly maybe, but at 27, talking with him, I realized for the first time how “Socialism” has a bad connotation for Americans. To me, hearing the word didn’t affect me more than “Democracy”. I’ve read kids (I hope) on the redpill reddit argue that capitalism is inherently redpill. YEAH!! But then I get remember that in the US, citizens have to pay money to get a university education… Just saying: In central Europe, till… Read more »

I’ve only found your site a month ago but have read almost every single one of your posts. You’re doing a great job Rollo, keep it up. I was “redpilled” before, but your work helped me really understand the concepts I only superficially knew before. Anyways, back on topic. I don’t think it’ll take long for peak hypergamy. As you said 4 years is all it took for open hypergamy to creep out from the shadows. Look at some other trends. Gay marriage. Under a decade the policy has seen a complete reversal. Transexuals. What was considered mental illness for… Read more »

“Is there an edge of how much hyper gamy can take – is there predictive measure to how long she will take shit from the guy? How to figure out that point?”

From life experience I would say their is no limit on a biological level. Tools are forfarthers used in social context put a limit on it. Not so much in 2015

I dislike the melodramatic associations, but Hypergamy really is akin to a Manchurian Candidate type situation. The woman is the programmed assasin, the target is some unfortunate dude is unaware of how much damage she’s capable of, and when the rifle fires and the smoke clears…..”oh, totally not my fault. The Sniper Rifle just went off.” Thus, even if you point out her own Hypergamy to a female its like trying to tell the Manchurian Candidate he’s under mind control. Disbelief is the result, and she resumes following her own internal puppetmaster. Brilliant. If a man sets about recognizing and… Read more »

“I think Divided Line is correct – there will come a state when Open Hypergamy’s power consolidation becomes too obvious and the social mechanics the Feminine Imperative has used to ensure that consolidation will be too much for women to maintain as a collective. Then what?”

What might slow it down is greater betas becoming redpilled. As noted above, the Heartiste feature can be quite painful. No guy wants to spend 8-10 years of his life building a career or a business to take sloppy seconds from a DJ. And he’d especially hate to wear the horns of a cuckold, if the writers from antiquity are to be believed. It might even be happening.

No we haven’t seen peak hypergamy, but we have seen peak marriage.
Just like only the top 20% of men are visible to women, in future given that the juice will have to be worth the squeeze only the top 20% of females will be considered for marriage, the rest will have a future of pump and dumps, short flings, cats and dildos.
The only thing that will stop hypergamy will be financial/ societal collapse.

Attractive Women and Betas are very happy With the approval of women’s Viagra ! .
For the first time in history, can science alter women’s ovulation/AF,BB SYSTEM?
I mean, if a woman is married to an unattractive man , all she has to do is to take the pill AFTER AF ovulation.
Ps1
How about creating a pill that kills women’s libido during AF ovulation ?.

On the weekend I was discussing Billy Bob Thornton with my oldest daughter. She felt that BBT was the love of Angelina Jolie’s life, and the relationship with Brad Pitt lacks something. I replied that BBT was the boyfriend and Brad the dad, and she agreed.

In our terms, BBT made Jolie an alpha widow, and Brad is the BB cuck raising children who are not his, and some who are supposed to be his. Women don’t understand why Brad, an alpha in most movies, accepts being a BB and pussy whipped.

As BBs become more aware of the dynamic and delay marrying it might be the case that women will simply chuck in the towel of false pretences and solely pursue AFs. I know a lot of frustrated women currently looking for BBs and one of the significant prerequisites is money. As the comparative earning power between sexes narrows the requisite amount of income necessary to facilitate BBs has become inordinately high. The very value that defines BBs, higher comparative earning capacity, is becoming a diminishing pool. At the lower end of the socio economic spectrum it virtually doesn’t exist while… Read more »

“@Lucien, now compare and contrast the very marginal incidences of “honor killings” with the rate of suicides in men world wide.”

Well,
I am afraid there will be no present or future cultural, societal or governmental laws (maybe scientific) to control Hypergamy/women’s ovulation .
It is up to men to adopt and learn how to navigate this newly, scientifically proven reality .
It is a very very simple experiment for men to test .

I think the true peak of hypergamy is coming in the form of the “draft” criminal code revisions being proposed by some unusually SJW-oriented uniform law drafters at the American Law Institute. These proposed laws would class as misdemeanors all “unwanted” physical contact – which could range from extremes like tackling or kicking or hitting, to first-date unsolicited hand-holding or a smooch on the cheek. The ALM drafters make no bones that they are trying, in their own special way, to crminalize conduct not conforming to “yes means yes” and “enthusiastic consent” standards. When confronted about these chilling absurd results… Read more »

“If the flow of true BBs in the upper middle and above does start to dry up a bit, I think that women may flip to a kind of cuck scenario (it won’t be called that, of course), where they marry men with less bucks in the beta bucks equation, with the socially supported expectation of non-monogamy and continued access to AF. In theory it will be bilaterally open, but the BB of course has much less opportunity. It solves the issue for at least some women, I think, if true BBs in the upper middle and above become more… Read more »

Yes means Yes is already law in many places . . . how much more f*cked can we possibly get? I am glad you brought up the misdemeanor sexual misconduct idea; without giving away too much I have also been privy to some discussions about that. Yes, law professors have actually pushed back very hard, including women. That was one of the signs for me that there is still some sense out there. In fact a lot of the older generation don’t even fully realize what’s going on.

OK

But it seems they say that in one sentence then proceed to be totally resist to most efforts to dominate. I realize that a select few men never have to worry about that.

I, being lazy, don’t want the fight, especially because I can’t use my hands (legal and social norms frown on a good solid slap). I really can’t be bothered to endure the verbal/psychological resistance when I am forbidden to resort to the physical.

Another sign is the rise of gay marriage, with its norms of non-monogamy or various degrees of “monogamish” arrangements — I don’t really understand the obsession with gay men in the manosphere, but I agree that open marriages and polygamy will be the goals of open hypergamy. It’s already starting actually. Ever heard of Nicole Daedone and OneTaste? Orgasmic Meditation? They promote non-monogamy as the ideal. She was married to some BB silicon valley entrepreneur that she openly cuckolded and broadcast it all over the internet. Then after the divorce she gathered a cougar harem of men….

A lot of commenters here seem to follow a line of thought “how can we get women back to building proper families etc.”. Please note this is the worst frame to tackle the issue. Women are machiavellian creatures, it may be even more important to understand than Hypergamy. If you want something from a women, she can dictate the terms and will use that power for a lot of stupid shit. If, on the other hand, she needs you to have a family and children (which they all want at some point), you dictate the terms. Female machiavellism is very… Read more »

AWALT, in other words. Yes, though I should have been more clear. I don’t mean that more and more women will rein in their own hypergamy. I mean that the attractive woman who can no longer find a man to marry her might turn on the Open Hypergamy bandwagon (turn against Team Woman) because the secret coming out so blatantly will hurt her chances of finding a alpha male to commit to her. She will lose that status of being able to find a man with options that has chosen just her. That is a powerful status marker that women… Read more »

They really want a truly dominant man and only playing it will probably remind them you aren’t really. If they ask for it, I think it’s even some kind of shit test. Don’t jump when asked for it.

Interestingly back in those days ca. 2000 it where the other females, girlfriends of the men around, who stopped her with a lot of hostility. They didn’t like her going for their boyfriends and she decided she didn’t want social exclusion. Nowadays with Tinder it could be different.
But in this case it worked out for my friend letting her ride the carousel until she had enough and wanted children. And at that point she wanted something from him he made very hard to get. Of course she values that commitment very highly.

“lh, my thinking is that The Wild Oats project is a far more common situation” Yes, I think so too. But the reason is the men let those women because they value the marriage higher – which gives her the option to capitalize that value given by the man against him. Men in such situations have little options. Being jealous is weakness, it doesn’t help. You can either accept it or replace her. Being ready to replace her (soft dread, spinning plates) should be enough to keep her in check though. Men not doing that and letting themselves drive into… Read more »
