Fempowerment

fempowerment

I’m often asked by ‘fempowered’ women critics whether I ‘believe‘ in some of the more socially acceptable tenets of feminism in some sort defense to the affront of my Red Pill lens being cast their way. It’s usually something to do with, “Do you or do you not think women ought to have the right to vote?” or the ever-reliable “Shouldn’t women have the right to do with their bodies what they choose?” These questions are always binary (“yes or no will do”) and usually couched in a context that implies that if you even slightly disagree or have a marginal caveat to answering ‘appropriately’ you’ll be dismissed with a name tag that has “misogynist” printed on it. Say no and you’re a despicable misogynist. Say yes and you’re tar-pitted in “yes, but” caveats – mansplaining – that are disqualified because you’re a man.

Say no and you’re a despicable misogynist. Say yes and you’re tar-pitted in “yes, but” caveats – mansplaining – that are disqualified because you’re a man. Up until recently, it’s been a very effective means of silencing uncomfortable truths about the Feminine Imperative.

I’ve always found it ironic that a movement (feminism) that predicates itself on the ostensibly egalitarian notion that rational, reasonable considerations of issues should lead us to ideals of equality is the first to reduce itself to unquestioned, blind faith binaries at the first sign of rational reasonable truth being unflattering to women. If you want to know who holds power over you, look at whom you aren’t allowed to criticise – or even hint at criticism.

My position on these and many other questions of the sort is usually met with simple observational analysis (as you’d probably expect). I don’t necessarily have a problem with women voting or even having access to legal (relatively safe) abortions. What I have a problem with is the latent purpose behind the reasons that led to women’s decisions to vote a particular way or the latent purposes that brought them to having that abortion. For the greater part, any dubious ‘right’ women feel they were somehow denied in the past usually comes at the expense of men being liable for decisions they had nothing to do with.

What I have a problem with is an expectation of lowering the standards of the game, thus fundamentally altering the game, to better accommodate the variable strengths and weaknesses of women – up to, and including, changing the very nature of women’s environmental realities that would endanger the wellbeing of both sexes. What I take issue with is the expectation of making men liable for the decisions and consequences of the rights and freedom of choices we’ve reserved for only women to make (almost unilaterally Hypergamic choices) that are not in men’s best interests.

I mentioned in Our Sister’s Keeper that men today find themselves in a very precarious position with regard to entertaining women’s perceived wrongs of the past. Men are expected,by default, to be held accountable, for no other reason than they were born men, for past injuries to the ever-changing Feminine Imperative. Your existence as a man today, your failed understanding to accommodate women’s social primacy, your lack of catering to the ambiguous nature of what conveniently passes for masculinity, is a constant stinking affront and obstacle to the “advancement” of women. The Feminine Imperative has known how to manipulate men’s Burden of Performance for millennia, and at not other time in history has it had the unfettered leisure to do so than now.

So, we get socially acceptable default presumptions of ‘male privilege’ without qualifying what it even means, or we get catchy jingoisms like ‘mansplaining’ to give a name to women’s need for silencing men’s inconvenient observations of women’s ‘correct’ perceptions, decisions and the reasons they came to them. We get default presumptions of male guilt for sexual assault and sexual consent as fluidly defined in as convenient a way that serves women’s imperatives. As I’ve mentioned before, the true intent of feminism has never been about establishing a mutually agreed ‘equality’, rather it’s always been about retribution and restitution for perceived past wrongs to the sisterhood.

There has always been a subtext, a cover story, of equality mentioned in the same breath as feminism. Only the most antagonistic asshole, only the most anti-social prick, would be against “equality between the sexes”. Thus, to be against feminism is to be against a simplistic concept of baseline equality. However, taken out of the propagandizing efforts to shame and ‘correct’ men’s imperatives, it’s easy to demonstrate that the true intent of feminism is female ‘fempowerment’ in the dressing of an equality that no man (or woman) wants to appear to be against.

Yellowed Pearls

I found an interesting example of this  Catch 22 in the Economist recently. Pick and choose: Why women’s rights in China are regressing.

In 2007 China’s official Xinhua news agency published a commentary about women who were still unmarried at the age of 27 under the title, “Eight Simple Moves to Escape the Leftover Woman Trap”. The Communist Party had concluded that young Chinese women were becoming too picky and were over-focused on attaining the “three highs”: high education, professional status and income. Newspapers have since reprinted similar editorials. In 2011 one said: “The tragedy is they don’t realise that as women age they are worth less and less, so by the time they get their MA or PhD, they are already old, like yellowed pearls.”

In the last Red Pill Monthly discussion, I mentioned the expansion that the Feminine Imperative has taken on a global scale. One of the old missives of the manosphere has always been about how American women are too far gone to be worth ever entertaining beyond a pump-and-dump consideration. They are too damaged and self-absorbed beyond all redemption, and men ought to expatriate to another country where women are more feminine or at least necessitous enough to appreciate a conventionally masculine man.

I get that. I understand the want for a Poosy Paradise or some promised land where women are still raised to respect and love men by being conventionally feminine. I also get that there exist certain cultures where this is still true, but for all of that, I think it’s important to recognize the social undercurrent that the Feminine Imperative exercises in these cultures. A popular meme on Twitter is ‘Feminism is Cancer’, but there’s a kernel of truth to the humor of this. The spread of the westernizing social primacy of the Feminine Imperative is spreading, not unlike cancer, into what we would otherwise believe were societies and cultures still oppressed by the mythical Patriarchy – a belief necessary to perpetuate the narrative of default female victimhood.

It may not be now, but at some stage, the Feminine Imperative will exercise its presumptive control over even the societies we think ought to be immune from that cancer. As I mention on The Red Pill Monthly, even in underdeveloped countries where we would expect to find the horrible oppression of girls and women, we make a triumphant example of the incidents of where girls (not boys) are taught to read and “think for themselves”. Westernized culture, founded on the Feminine Imperative, celebrates every time a woman in Saudi Arabia is allowed to drive a car, much less run a business on her own as if it were some blow against the tyranny of men.

Little by little, or in leaps and bounds, your second or third world Poosy Paradise will eventually be assimilated by the Feminine Imperative.

I bring this up because, as you’ll read in the linked article, China is also experiencing the long-term results of having adopted feminine social primacy in its own culture. From women’s popular consciousness, we’re still, to this day, told of how horrible “communist” China has been in mandating its one-child policy and how its draconian ‘sons live, daughters die’ social structure has been the result. However, once we reasonably investigate it, we find that China now has a problem with “Yellowed Pearls” as a result of a cultural shift that placed women’s interests as preeminent in that culture. And it should be noted that this shift came about as the direct result of the men who adopted and accommodated the Feminine Imperative as their own.

Now the problem for women in China is not unlike the plight of American women bemoaning the lack of men with “equal” marriageability as themselves. And likewise, the self-same social authorities responsible for institutionalizing the fempowerment of women are now the horrible misogynist villains for suggesting that women ought to lower their unrealistic standards.

The tone of these articles is surprising, given the Communist Party’s past support for women’s advancement. Mao Zedong destroyed China, but he succeeded in raising the status of women. Almost the first legislation enacted by the Communist Party in 1950 was the Marriage Law under which women were given many new rights, including the right to divorce and the right to own property.

Sounds a far cry different from the pictures women, even women in this century, have painted of China’s institutionalized, one-child sexism doesn’t it? Remember, this advancement in women’s rights took place before the Cultural Revolution in China.

Though collectivisation made the latter largely irrelevant, women played an active role in Mao’s China, and still do today. By 2010 26% of urban women had university degrees, double the proportion ten years earlier. Women now regularly outperform men at Chinese universities, which has led to gender-based quotas favouring men in some entrance exams. However, many of the earlier advances have been eroded in recent years by the gradual re-emergence of traditional patriarchal attitudes.

Consider this part in contrast to other industrialized nations and how women have increased their socio-political standing as the result of having the Feminine Imperative adopted as the primary social order of those cultures. Even in cultures that are still popularly deemed “repressive” to women we see educational and socioeconomic parallels to western(ized) cultures. We also see the same resulting consequences and the shifting of blame for them to men. The downside of Yellowed Pearls is placed at the feet of men for not living up to the convenient, feminine-primary definition of what their Burden of Performance ought to mean in promoting and forgiving women’s decisions.

The party has joined an alliance of property companies and dating websites to confront the issue. Government surveys on marriage and property are often sponsored by matchmaking agencies, and perpetuate the perception that being “leftover” is the worst thing that can happen to a woman. They also promote other myths, such as the idea that a man must have a house before he can marry.

As you may expect, the tone of the article is written to emphasize an egalitarian perspective that conflicts with a reality that the Feminine Imperative would have men change or be responsible for not having changed. It’s men’s fault that women might feel bad for not having married by a post-wall age. It’s men’s fault for promoting myths that women would expect that a man must be successfully established in his life and career before any considerations of marriage occur to him. It’s also a man’s fault for clinging to the “myth” that women don’t want him to be established.

The law is reflecting the shift away from women’s empowerment too. An interpretation by the Supreme Court in 2011 of the 1950 Marriage Law stated that, when a couple divorces, property should not be shared equally, but each side should keep what is in his or her own name. This ruling, says Ms Fincher, has serious implications. In the big cities a third of marriages now end in divorce but, based on hundreds of interviews, she finds that only about 30% of married women have their name on the deeds of the marital flat. Women believe the party hype about becoming a “leftover” woman so strongly, she says, that many rush into unhappy marriages with unsuitable men, made on condition that the brides agree not to put their name on the property deeds.

Feminism Would be a Success if Men Would Only Cooperate More

Several years ago Dalrock had a post detailing the sentiment of feminists that feminism would be a success if only men would cooperate with the ideology by abandoning their own interests and sublimating their own biological impulses. The fact remains that feminism and egalitarianism are failed ideologies because at the root level those ideologies ask men to participate in their own extinction. Not only this, but they ask men to raise successive generations to accommodate and participate in their own degradation.

The narrative expects Yellowed Pearls to be prized by men, or respected as Spinsters, or pandered to as ‘Cougars’ while still maintaining men sublimate their own imperatives by willfully ignoring the fact that their own sexual strategy is what is being asked of them to abandon. As I stated in the Cardinal Rule of Sexual Strategies, for one sex’s strategy to succeed the other must either be compromised or abandoned – what better way is there to assure this for women than to socially mandate through shame, persecution or financial liabilities that men abandon their own strategy in favor of women?

For some time now, I’ve detailed how for the past 4 or 5 generations, there has been a popular social re-engineering effort to raise and condition boys to become the ‘better betas‘ – boys designed to become the supportive male-reinforcers of empowering women’s interests and imperatives.

For a greater part this effort has been primarily focused on boys and men in western society, and while it’s still open for debate, I’d say that westernizing cultures are really the only cultural environments that can afford to entertain this ‘fempowerment’. This is changing radically now if it was ever really the case to begin with.

In the manosphere we like to highlight the ‘pussification’ of modern men through various efforts on the part of a nebulous ‘socitey’ aligned against masculinity. However, the flip side to this is the fempowerment agenda; an feminine-primary social structure that disallows any criticism of inherently female nature while promoting the empowerment of women on every level of social strata.

We coddle and cater to the feminine in every aspect of social interaction, every aspect of academic achievement, every socioeconomic advantage inventable, every story we tell in every form of media and we do so under the threat of not being supportive or misogynistic for suggesting anything marginally pro-masculine. This is the other side of the demasculinization imperative of boys & men – the total consolidation of handicaping men and empowering women into unrealistic effigies of feminine triumphalism.

How do you counter this?

I’m always lauded for describing these social dynamics, but I’m run up the flagpole for not offering concrete ways of dealing with and pushing back on these imperatives. Many a MGTOW will simply suggest men no longer play the Game, that isolationism is the way to go, but this only serves to eventually concede power to the Feminine Imperative. You don’t get to check out of the Game even if you refuse to play it. For all the guys who left for parts unknown to find their demi-utopia of feminine women in a foreign country, even they will explain that the tide of feminism is changing those seemingly idlyic places. And for every guy to voluntarilly go celebate and “refuse to deal with women” I’ll show you a man whose tax dollars go to fund the consequences of women’s legislated rights to Hypergamous choice.

Sooner or later Men will have to confront and push back against both men and women who are convinced of their purpose in idealizing the dictates of the Feminine Imperative. A lot of men in the ‘sphere believe their being clever when they refer to people with this worldview as ‘SJWs’, but for every hair dyed, gender-confused man-woman you see on Twitter there are hundreds of ‘normal’ people who all share similar perspectives – some simply subconscious generalization they’re oblivious to – sitting next to you at church, or working in the cubicle next to you.

As I’ve mentioned countless times, the change needs to take place by appealing to the hearts and minds of Men by making them Red Pill aware from the bottom up, but moreover, we need to live out that awareness in our own lives and lead by Red Pill example. Our decisions in life, our aspiration in parenting, family and career, in our business dealings, in the women we Game and the people we hire, all of these aspects need to take on the perspective of how they fit into pushing back against a feminine-primary world that demands we surrender any thought of individuated male power.

As Men, we need to unapologetically exercise what little power we’re left with to inform this and successive generation of Red Pill truths tactfully, but with strength of conviction in the face of a feminine-primary society bent on our surrender. Life finds a way. Feminism and the consolidation of the Feminine Imperative have failed because Men were not evolved to acquiesce their dominant spirit. On the same evolutionary level women also evolved into requiring that convnetionally masculine dominance. This is why feminism and egalitarianism will ultimately fail – nature simply will not cooperate with it’s own stagnation. As men, we can use this truth to our Red Pill aware advantage.

    It’s not masochism. Here’s what happens: the sex and love cause the male brain to flood with certain chemicals which get them high. The men become addicted. Males, especially beta males with few options, are easily manipulated in this state. And women are experts at manipulation.

    Existence of these contracts is proof of the expertise of female manipulation. Females are so manipulative, they have actually convinced everyone women are victims of these contracts. It’s ingenious!!

  3. Mile Fan “I’m just not sure where to go from here.”

    Get thee to the nearest college campus… stroll about. have a look around. Grab a coffee, breath in the air. Do you feel anything?

    Go past Sorority Row… linger… Go hit the campus bar when the sun goes down. Anything yet?

    There is your answer…

    FWIW – Last name is just a huge shit test… she is hoping you will pass it. and yes you CAN regain hand but that will not preclude further routine shit testing… get used to it if you intend to get married.

    Lastly – DON’T get married! Unless you want to have kids with this woman and start paying for them NOW… I suspect this isn’t the case, but rather you are simply another BP dupe on the ChumpTrain… Toot toot!!

    Good luck.

    “How self aware are these types of women? I’ve never met an accomplished woman with this attitude except when it comes to a divorce. I suspect this attitude prevents accomplishment. This might be why the percentage of women in the STEM fields only approaches that of men in developing countries. There are just not enough resources in developing countries to pull off this scam.”

    I think they’re very self aware of the scam they’re pulling. I know educated, professional women who pull the scam. They play at being an adult after college for a few years (and fuck bad boys to boot), and then they snag their beta provider and make babies. Many abandon their professions altogether (what a waste of education and money). Others slink back into easy part-time, rewarding work.

    women don’t need to manipulate men into marriage that often… most guys can’t wait it seems, they put the noose around their neck themselves… because they don’t think that she will ever change at all… so perhaps that might be construed at some level as manipulation? But a stretch too far for me, because she doesn’t believe she will change either. The only truth to a woman is emotion… emotion is always in the moment after all…

  6. @Sentient

    I respectfully disagree. Without sex and the concomitant love high, no man would every marry.

    Unless you’re her fuck buddy, she begins her nesting enterprise from day one.

  7. @KFG, @Andy, @Bachelorcles — FWIW I’m a stay at home mom and it’s both really hard and really easy at the same time.

    Sometimes people say to me (usually men, married/fathers, with a patronizing smile) that it’s the hardest job there is. That’s INSANE. Insane. Every single actual job I’ve hard before this has been way harder, yes even emotionally.

    But on the other hand, what’s really hard at least at this point is the loneliness. Loneliness is really hard. And yeah, meaninglessness is really hard. Not that it actually is meaningless but it feels meaningless because you’re doing a lot of tasks that don’t seem to add up to anything at the end of the day. Like all I’m doing is keeping people alive and fed and responding to their extremely mundane needs.

    I try to be grateful and not entitled when my husband comes home. It actually is hard not to think of it as him being “lucky” that he gets to leave and do meaningful work that is recognized and appreciated by other people

  8. Bachelorcles

    Clarifying, everything II said presumed sex before marriage…

    Just think about it… by and large, the man is still the one who makes the ask.

    Money isn’t everything. Above a certain point it’s almost nothing. Do your eyes hurt Karen?

  10. @LeeLee

    Stop with the manipulation,

    First, it’s not hard. It’s very easy and the deep secret is women love it. My mother cries when she sees pictures of her and I when I was a little boy. My father does not cry and get nostalgic when shown pictures of his old workplace.

    Secondly, most ladies of leisure are not lonely. They receive tremendous support from friends, family, neighbors in person, on Facebook, via texting, and phone calls.

    Finally, you’re molding a human being. Nothing could be more meaningful and rewarding.

    So please top the fucking manipulation.

  11. It actually is hard not to think of it as him being “lucky” that he gets to leave and do meaningful work that is recognized and appreciated by other people

    I will not misrepresent…I have a great deal of sympathy for the writings of Judge Posner on the 7th Circuit…and his splendid defense and expansion in the theoretical realm of the economics of justice…with a specific emphasis on the concept of applying cost / benefit analysis to most activities in daily life.

    Money cannot buy happiness; but poverty can buy even less.

  13. Hey Karen – it seems you have a way with cultural analysis -wouldn’t mind hearing your take on Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut. It was about Sex Magick – yes?

  14. Ahhh Mother’s Day – two quick ones…

    First memory – brother and I were like 8, 10, forgot Mother’s Day. Mom went ballistic!

    First Mother’s Day with wife, shortly after first one was born, a year in… She asks if I got her anything for Mother’s Day… Me:[puzzled look] You’re not my mom? Wife goes ballistic!

    LOL

  15. @Sentient

    “Just think about it… by and large, the man is still the one who makes the ask.”

    I agree. But the question is why they ask.

  18. “sfer, anyone else, think twice about online pharmacies, especially from India. Something like 20% to 30% of the drugs sold in India are nothing, or even harmful (lead isn’t good to eat). Dosage can be wrong, different from what is specified. Quality control is not a strong point for a lot of Indian pharma.”

    I never had a problem, but maybe don’t buy a drug you need to stay alive or something.

  19. “Like all I’m doing is keeping people alive and fed and responding to their extremely mundane needs.”

    Blow jobs are FAR from mundane Lee Lee!

    On a serious note. It is not your husband’s job to make your life meaningful. If you need meaning beyond what you do now then you need to figure out what that is and how to do it on your own. I think you know that it surely isn’t a JOB… There. You’ve got a leg up on 99% of women.

  20. Hey Karen – Eyes Wide Shut – that be one crazy movie. I guess it’s a masterpiece cause people will be still trying to figure that one out 100 years from now. That Kubrick – he was one deep fellow. Worth seeing the movie.

    Maybe one can’t really understand what is going on here with this surreal human condition we all experience – without appeals to the topic of topics.

    Karen puts out so much bullshit. it would be a full time job correcting it.

    What conclusion do you draw from that?

  22. sfer on Indian pharma

    I never had a problem,

    How do you know that? Between the placebo effect and the length of time it takes some bad stuff such as lead to affect a human, how do you know?

  23. @Bachelorcles I think your mom cries when she sees pictures of you are her together as a little boy because that’s nostalgia about a relationship that has deep roots and history. I can relate to why she would feel that way, but it doesn’t make the “sowing season” any less difficult.

    It’s definitely not easy to spend all day molding the wild material of a small child’s mind into something approximating emotional / intellectual soundness.

    Studies show Stay at Home moms have the highest rates of depression, much more than working women. If it’s all just the fixings for old lady nostalgia, why would that be?

  24. @Bachelorcles

    “I think they’re very self aware of the scam they’re pulling. I know educated, professional women who pull the scam.

    You’re mention of “rewarding work” reminds me of a friend’s Iranian husband who is too spiritual to work. While it was unusual for a man to pull off this scam, I think this is a scam that many women implicitly manage very well. The yoga, organic / detox foods, spa treatments, and low stress “rewarding work” fit the profile of a self identifying “spiritual woman”. The whole feminist ideology is centered around the divine nature of the feminine and the toxic nature of the masculine.

    Women are so into this stuff that manufacturers are able to sell female versions of products at a much higher cost. It seems that women can’t even escape exploitation when choosing between two differently colored products in the same isle at the same store.

  25. @Andy, I completely agree with you. It’s not his job to give ME meaning. That’s something I have to figure out on my own, and I think it is the thing most stay at home moms are missing that makes them so depressed.

    Like, in a lot of ways modern life is too easy, but modern parenting is too hard. Moms invest in their children for their own personal meaning in a way that isn’t healthy, especially for the kids, and this leads to crazy helicopter parenting. This generation of parents is putting in more hours in hands-on childcare than ever before.

    So it’s not like at the end of the day most women can look at something they physically made (beyond dinner) or like something they canned or a garden they planted, because everything is centered on the kids. And little kids bring a limited return of meaning.

    Mostly I find they just spread the contents of my loose change jar full across the living room floor while I’m doing upstairs doing laundry.

  26. Hey LeeLee – your sentiment about being unfulfilled, in some abstract way, wrt to doing the stay at home Mom thing – I don’t think that is uncommon at all with alot of women.

    I got a great Mom, in her ’80’s now (she and our father raised 5 of us), but man – was she ever itching to get back to contributing to the family by way of building a career (even though my Dad was doing great career-wise), after my youngest sister was in kindergarten. Back at that time she was getting down right cranky and bitchy. Man – things were alot better in the house after she went to work (and upgraded with some additional university course work to aid carer advancement), – Mom happier – everybody else in the house relieved and less stressed now that Mom is doing good now, outlook-wise, and not cranky and bitchy nearly as much.

    I asked my Mom about this and really it seems like it came down to this – she felt like she wasn’t being respected for the adult she was, outside of the family. She wasn’t getting the feedbacks from the world at large that aligned with her self-image, and so was feeling covertly disrespected (and maybe some of this was overt too, because she went back to work in the late 1960’s, and the “little woman” meme was still alive and well among many of the men at that time).

    I get it that alot of women don’t like the “little woman” meme (maybe outside of being crazy for her man). Nor should they. It is degrading because it doesn’t really align with women’s true abilities.

    LeeLee – maybe you have some ways (like your blogspot), to get the adult interaction you need to have, and so perhaps this is not really an issue for you (I’m not judging – everybody has differences).

  27. @LeeLee

    “So it’s not like at the end of the day most women can look at something they physically made (beyond dinner) or like something they canned or a garden they planted, because everything is centered on the kids. And little kids bring a limited return of meaning.”

    Creativity is important. Have you thought about what you can create while at home? Sewing, quilting, gardening, and the like were traditional ways in which women created while tending children. And these are also things that can be done with other women.

  28. “I think KFG is going to chime in on agency…”

    It has been asked, what would induce a man to give up half his resources.

    I ask, what would induce a man to give up nearly all of his agency, the most valuable thing a man possesses and with which he can always acquire more resources.

    And bearing in mind that the resources he needs to acquire as a single man are considerably less than that he needs to acquire as a married one.

    Well, I was young and stupid once, maybe even twice, and let her turn me into a newt. It actually seemed like a good idea at the time. I lacked the wisdom of experience.

    ” . . .Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut. It was about Sex Magick – yes?”

    No. Sex Magic was the MacGuffin.

    At the level of the protagonist, it was about everything that Rollo writes about here.

    At the level of the setting it was about how those who have substantial socio-economic power view you as a useful idiot for buying the egalitarian lie.

    In short, it was about The Matrix.

  29. @Lee Lee “. . . why would that be?”

    Because they live in little boxes on the hillside
    Little boxes made of ticky-tacky
    Little boxes, little boxes, little boxes
    All the same

    Or, to put it a bit less obtusely, and surprisingly, what Wild Man said.
    The modern stay at home mom, shut up in her little box, has been isolated from community, and women require community as men require agency.

    Re Eyes Wide Shut, concur…. Good red pill film and for those reasons.

    As an aside, great example of a dramatized version of my hotel lounge game and super laser eye at the 9 minute mark. The dance scene.

    Can’t find a good clip to post… But worth looking at for this alone.

  31. @Rollo

    LOL!!

    And that grave does not show the millions of men who sustained permanent psychological and bodily damage resulting in diminished and shortened lives.

    I jsust saw a recently made WW-II documentary. One segment bemoaned the plight of poor, suffering, struggling American women who were “forced to endure factory work.” lol

    @LeeLee

    She cries because she loved her job, it was tremendously rewarding (unlike 99% of all jobs outside the home), and she’s sad it’s over. She’s pleased with the results, she leads a good life now, but she misses it deeply.

    As I said, the deep, dirty secret is women love staying home and raising their children. They further love the leisurely lifestyle it brings.

    Spending the day at home raising children and keeping a home is easy. Cleaning a home takes one hour per day (upper middle class women have maids). You have no rush-hour drive, no boss, no taxes, no cut-throat competition, no customers to please, no occupational injuries. I will admit the first two years can be a little difficult, but after that it’s a cake walk – especially when they go to school. Then it’s like early retirement. So you really only work for the first two years. But in divorce court you get rewarded as if you’ve endured degrading drudgery for 40 years.

    Lets face it: men take on nearly all of the stress of the world. It is not surprising women live so much longer.

    Depression of SAHMs . . . depression is a serious, organic condition of the brain with genetic underpinnings. It isn’t sadness from boredom. Again, boredom has always been the chief complaint of the privileged, leisured classes. Boredom is also self-inflicted.

    Think of all the time you have and what you can do. You can study the great questions of science and philosophy, read great literature, develop yourself into a gourmet chef, work out daily, learn economics and politics. I bet these things interest you, no? right?

  32. “That’s something I have to figure out on my own, and I think it is the thing most stay at home moms are missing that makes them so depressed.”

    My wife says the same stuff. I think it just boils down to getting validation from other people about doing things a bit more intellectually stimulating than laundry. Thing is, putting your kids second to get a job or something is only going to make you more anxious. In most cases… So, like what can you do to add value to people’s lives working around your responsibilities at home?

  33. Hey kfg – Sex Magick wasn’t the MacGuffin, it was the proposition of Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut, informing about Redpill, informing about “everything that Rollo writes about here”, informing about the manipulations of the elites as they too are so manipulated.

    In other words the deep topic of Sex Magick is actually about how all of the human condition is about the operations of operant conditioning within appeals to personal agency.

  34. @ YaReally –

    ” My point is just that like, like some 45yo guy who’s been divorced raped and is working 2 jobs to pay alimony and venting about his frustrations tend to not be reading Shoe’s Twitter feed and understanding how Tinder has actually changed things in terms of the whole sexual “battlefield” or how webcam culture has grown or following reddit/GamerGate/etc Like ya you work in tech, but do you know the young kids’ culture around it? Do you know what GamerGate was about or who, say, Candace Owens is and what her relevance this week is, or how Twitter has put Anita Sarkeesian on their “safety council” and how reddit is being censored by SJWs and how the general reactions on places like reddit or comment sections on articles are reacting to false rape accusation stories or what 8chan is what Nero is out there doing, what Rebel Media and Gavin/Lauren are doing there, etc?”

    I’m mostly acquainted with what the ” kids ” are doing/following/participating in with The Culture.

    The Gamergate thing imo was silly and stupid. I get the wider implications around it, but I’m like…adults should actually do some shit. All the larping ( you shouldn’t have taught me that word )and bullshit over fakery and feelz and he said/ she said childishness just does nothing at all for me.

    Candace Owens is just another complainer. Zfg. Because I don’t live online, she can’t impact my life anymore than the current anti-bullying hysteria already has.

    I heard about the twitter safety thing, again, I don’t participate. Ask this latest social media victim how he feels now…

    See, I get that there is a new ” culture ” and all that, but it seems to only make young people stupid and narcissistic and trapped in a fake world with fake problems while retarding the fuck out of true mental, spiritual and physical advancement in life.

    All of the ” look at me, look at me!!!!” nonsense is a bit much.

    Why in the world would anyone take vid/pics of themselves engaging in illegal activity? What is wrong with people?

    Everyone is trying to be a star, feel ” special ” and up their relevancy. Lol, but they don’t actually do shit.

    Take this Sh0e chick. Why would anyone care? This is just a chick to me. I don’t even find her entertaining, which means nothing, but again it’s about her ” youtube vids ” and her ” twitter feed ” and blah, blah, blah.

    I get that all of what I’m saying sounds like just * old man hate *. All that I have to compare ” then ” and ” now ” are my personal experiences over my lifespan, and the experiences of others, and the change is startling to me and even though I’m pretty much zfg about it, it doesn’t stop me from wondering where people are headed.

    I mean, at 17 me and a few guys drove across the country, Jersey to LA. Twice even. Talk about doing some shit. But there were no electronic pacifiers available. I used to drag cars out of junk yards and bring them back to ” new ” condition, build bikes from broken frames I’d find in the trash, put forth the effort to learn some electrical and carpentry, build and race a car competitively practically every weekend, take up boxing and martial arts, play guitar and even build a few ( ok…that didn’t turn out so well..but fuck it..lol ) bang strippers and fuck chicks until they were reduced to piles of quivering jelly.

    And it was fun and great.

    So seeing a culture that’s centered around devices and apps and bullshit like that, watching everyone with their heads down eye fucking a phone or tablet, spending hours talking about what some stranger said or is doing or videos posted – I’m like ” what the fuck does that do for you, or have to really do with you??”.

    The other thing is that people, specifically MEN, don’t seem to be able to do anything anymore. I’m speaking en mass here. Grown ass men talking shit about ” sports ” instead of saying ” hey, I can master that shit too…gimmee a damn ball “.

    The human potential is pretty damn amazing to me. I try to get the absolute most out of life that I can. Death and/or illness comes fast enough.

    And what I’ve learned is that mostly anyone can achieve most of what they desire in life. Actual shit, I’m talking about. manipulate the matter gentlemen.

    And the bullying complainers….jesus. I don’t have words for that shit, and I don’t want to be subjected to the fucking complaining about it either. There are ways to deal with bullies. Softness rivaling Wonder Bread is not one of them.

    Okay Ya, stop laughing at me. I’m serious. Lol.

    I use technology to learn shit. To improve my understanding and abilities.

    I come here to TRM because every day practically, something or someone here makes me think. Adds to my knowledge base. Rollo has given me retroactive understanding, and for me, that’s a pretty neat trick.

    Technology has increased the rate that I can learn and APPLY things at a geometric rate.

    You should see my lawn… Just don’t stand on it…

    I never, ever feel helpless or depressed. I get down, then I get the fuck back up. Know why? Because actively participating in life, to the best of my abilities, has shown me the way.

    Before all of the tech, there were people that taught and guided and shared with me. Dozens and dozens of people, mostly men, that contributed of themselves and I carry a bunch of them with me in mind and spirit ever, single, day.

    And aging has only made me thankful for that.

    So Ya, listen to GRANPA… LMAO.

    New is not necessarily better. The FI is fairly ” new “, and it is touted as the light, and the way, and the new enlightenment.

    Lol, do you buy that shit?

    And that’s all I have to say about that. It’s time for my nap.

    “ exploitation when choosing between two differently colored products in the same isle at the same store.”

    Lol

    “The whole feminist ideology is centered around the divine nature of the feminine and the toxic nature of the masculine.”

    Yes!! Female sexuality is wholesome while male sexuality is deviant and lowly. As I wrote in a recent post here:

    “Women present themselves as deities of a religion. The deities are pure and infallible. The religion has its dogma: thou shalt respect women, thou shalt believe women, thou shalt have the correct beliefs about women, thou shalt not question the dogma.

    If you question or, God forbid, present data disproving any dogma (eg, 1 in 4 women raped, the wage gap, etc), you will be labeled a sinner. Misogynist and sexist mean just that: a sinner who harbors forbidden beliefs.”

    I throw game with respect to this. When a woman pretends to be pure and sacred, a good girl, or when she acts offended at something I say, I let her know I’m not buying it. I’ll say with a grin something like, “you filthy little whore” or “you naughty little thing.” Women are filthy. Letting them know you know this communicates you’re in the club is rascals they like (no, they LOVE) to fuck.

    This generation of parents is putting in more hours in hands-on childcare than ever before.

    Ok, why? Who orders you to do this?

    So it’s not like at the end of the day most women can look at something they physically made (beyond dinner) or like something they canned or a garden they planted, because everything is centered on the kids. And little kids bring a limited return of meaning.

    Little kids of 3 or older can meander around a back yard while an adult is working in the vegetable garden. At least, I am pretty sure, since I did that as a 3 year old and didn’t perish.

    Mostly I find they just spread the contents of my loose change jar full across the living room floor while I’m doing upstairs…

    They don’t take the cushions off of the couch and build a fort or a house? Or get a box of wooden blocks out and build a little down, then drive trucks or tanks through it?

    If I had care of anyone under 18 I’d take away electronics and put out a whole lot of objects that they couldn’t break and that wouldn’t hurt them too much. Then spark up some imagination.

    Do you have a yard? Is it fenced in? If you do…

    Get a big cardboard box, like a refrigerator box, and a double handful of water based markers. Tell them “This is your fort / spaceship / submarine / mansion / palace / whatever. Decorate it for a while”. Then go away and let them do their stuff, while you do your stuff. In 30 min to an hour, go out with a box cutter and ask them if they want windows cut or not. Don’t let them use the edge, duh.

    I’ve never flown a helicopter, but I understand they demand constant attention….

    I lol’d. When I was very young, there was an area rug in the livingroom that had a grid pattern. I remember it even now. I had an assload of legos, a train set and hot wheels. I was in heaven for hours on end.

    Every morning before me dad left for work, he moved the coffee table and cleared the way for my ” town “.

    I have friends that have a 4 year old son. He spends time at my home quite often. He has a few toys, but mostly he just watches stuff on his iPad ( yes, they got him an iPad at 3 years old.). I have a huge backyard, and I try to take him outside to play, but he hates it. God forbid he should see a wasp or some ants. Even birds coming to the bird feeders scare the living shit out of him.

    *sigh* so I guess a fort is out of the question.

  38. God forbid he should see a wasp or some ants

    He’s a little young, but one way boys of 8 or 10 like to look at ants is through a magnifying glass. Preferably on a sunny day. Or so I’ve been told…

    It’s not that little kids need attention. It’s that so much can go wrong while they imprint your mannerisms. People get annoyed when their kid needs, basically emotional feedback. Without that feedback you become an insecure shmuck that needs to learn game and can’t just coast through the regularly scheduled program…not that the program is GOOD, but there are those that just never get to feel shafted by it.

  40. Hey Blax – the pipe mask brings back memories – when we were teens, me and my buddies rigged a very similar device (an old military issue gas mask) and would use that the odd time, to smoke ganja, in an old cabin behind my buddy`s parents house, – the idea was to get as blitzed as humanly possible – usually after a blast like that – it would be fall down on the floor time for a few minutes. For some reason there was always some Boston tunes playing, cranked to brain-churn intensity (my buddy had a kick-ass sound system). We hot-knifed black paki hashish a whole lot too (another good way to get fucked).

    Ahh – the indiscretions of youth – boys seem like they got go crazy, crazy, crazy for awhile – drugs, booze, fighting, loud music, fast cars, street racing – daredevil shit – girl`s honeypots – you know – boys probably do need to be hit over the head with some of that domestication shit, even just for survivability sake.

    >>>Women are masters in the black art of victimhood debt creation.

If they get divorced, they will actually feel entitled to alimony as a reward for not working.

    I like to do bike rides in my neighborhood and surrounding suburbs in early afternoon. I observe hordes of these pampered princesses walking, jogging, lounging, doing yoga, having leisurely coffee at the coffee house, eating lunch with their fellow princesses, shopping, hanging out in parks. The only men I see are working on the street, fixing electrical lines, cleaning the pools, and cutting the grass.

    These princesses have the most successful scam going. They get to live lives of leisure while being rewarded for victim status.

    Thing is, there’s no photographic proof anywhere, of what transpired.

    Not to out myself too much more, but I had a good friend that used to acquire recreational substances of all manner. For a while, we would go get a suite in a nice hotel, and obtain a couple of female cohorts of Chinese descent for 2 day ” parties “.

    But that got old eventually, and it hindered the ability to conduct necessary functions required to live ( like showing up to work on time, not hung over ).

    If I never told anyone, only the 4 of us would ever know. It will never, ever come back to haunt me via an Instagram post or a tweet.

    Youth is the time to do wild and crazy shit, but it isn’t wise to record it for posterity.

    The feelings are real, but I think the solution is what everyone here is suggesting. Take that emptiness and turn it back on itself in a burst of creativity, invest in relationships. Not like, Eat Pray Love. The feminist answer is that you can fill your own emptiness.

    I don’t know what the Red Pill answer is necessarily, but to me it’s something like: feeling the howling winds of emptiness screaming through me when they come, let them drive me to work for the harvest that awaits those who don’t give up.

    “Women present themselves as deities of a religion. The deities are pure and infallible. The religion has its dogma: thou shalt respect women, thou shalt believe women, thou shalt have the correct beliefs about women, thou shalt not question the dogma.”

    This is one of the most concise descriptions of the cult of woman that I’ve ever read. This applies to both women and the men who worship them. I’m old enough to have been taught by WWII veterans in school. Several described both the privileges and responsibly of women in society. They described women being placed on a pedestal by society, and they expected them to act accordingly. This was a no nonsense understanding that seems to have been lost in the post feminist world. How do you tell a guy who has shrapnel scars on his arms that he’s privileged or the oppressor of women? Society lost much when these guys retired. I don’t think its an accident that the SJW movement arose out of the first generation that had no meaningful contact with the WWII generation.

    “I throw game with respect to this. When a woman pretends to be pure and sacred, a good girl, or when she acts offended at something I say, I let her know I’m not buying it. I’ll say with a grin something like, “you filthy little whore” or “you naughty little thing.” Women are filthy.

    “Women present themselves as deities of a religion. The deities are pure and infallible. The religion has its dogma: thou shalt respect women, thou shalt believe women, thou shalt have the correct beliefs about women, thou shalt not question the dogma.”

    I had one additional thought. Your description of the cult of woman might be one of the reasons feminists are so at odds with traditional religion. Religious protests seem to be the main objectives of femen and their less radical sisters. Not only does religion attempt to restrict female sexuality, it also competes with the cult of woman as an ideology.

Men taunting the ever loving hell out of them. Cops dragging them off to awaiting police cruisers, tits and under arm hair flying everywhere.

    If one thinks about it for a moment; the profundity begins to sink in…it ranks up there with “Better to reign in Hell; than serve in Heaven” when it comes to a ranking of one’s own being as the focus of existence…rather than some self centered God who has the amazing temerity to demand that the 14 billion souls or so that have existed sublimate their individuality; their very being…to obey His Impossible Code…lest they Burn in Hell in perpetuity….if Luke is to be taken literally…then most everyone who has existed is being burned alive as I type this…but not experiencing the relief of conscious extermination…it goes on & on. 14 billion souls under His Thumb…

    (Most) humans are superior to cats & dogs in the same way Jehovah is (reputedly) superior to man. Would you torture a helpless animal forever? Of course not.

    What does Jehovah say just before he murders everyone at the Flood?

    “My Spirit will not last with man as he is flesh; I will limit his time to 120 years.”

    So there you have *an overt admission* that His Code is absurdly oppressive and diametrically opposed to the nature of the very beings he created…

    If His Code is rooted in Unassailable Truth…then why is it unable to endure?

    But yet all culpability is placed on man…that poor slob who barely knows up from down. When your car breaks down on the highway…do you blame the car or do you blame the manufacturer?

    If He were all powerful; why confuse the language of everyone at Babel?
    Why? Because He was nervous! Man was beginning to rebel and He needed to put a stop to it….same as in Eden centuries prior…”they will become as gods”.

    How do we know He was scared? Do you concern yourself with a yak walking through the plains of Siberia? Of course not…because they pose no threat to you. People are only silenced & destroyed IF THEY POSE A THREAT to the established order.

    The 1st commandment: “Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and all thy soul.”

    How can genuine love be born of a command? No one can be commanded to love anyone…you can be commanded to behave in an obedient fashion…but no command in the world or the celestial sphere will elicit genuine love & emotional affection.

    Things are often not what they seem…but ingrained attitudes that have been fed to you since birth are not easily tossed aside 20 to 30 years later.

  61. Think of the horrible manipulation of Job…tortured in two separate and distinct phases so Jehovah could prove a point to Satan.

    So much of his life and family destroyed…but its ok say the apologists…everything is restored twofold after the torture is complete!

    Lol. Members of his family are DEAD. He has endured financial ruin and amazing physical torture including leprosy and boils. But its ok; the point has been made!

    I always tell people that the last thing you want to let Jehovah see is your happiness…because there is nothing in this universe Jehovah hates more than a happy person. As soon as a person knows an ounce of contentment, he begins His assault on your being.

    He *makes* you hate him…He practically demands it. And then He asks you to thank him for torturing you.

    However, there are other Gods that I have great affection for…it is unlikely that Their Names would be known to you.

  63. “How can genuine love be born of a command? No one can be commanded to love anyone…you can be commanded to behave in an obedient fashion…but no command in the world or the celestial sphere will elicit genuine love & emotional affection.

    Things are often not what they seem…but ingrained attitudes that have been fed to you since birth are not easily tossed aside 20 to 30 years later.”

    Yeah, that’s why red pill awareness is a praxeology, not an ideology. And why you don’t understand the tenets of this blog. That’s why Rollo lectures on red pill awareness.

    “Remember, a person can only see what they are predisposed to see…”

    Yeah, that’s why YaReally lectures on Game.

    And why Karen’s lecture is irrelevant. And generates indifference to her comments.

    If that constitutes a general physiological reaction that you are currently experiencing…I have no need to be made cognizant of it.

    If, however that constitutes some type of vehicle for conveying the distress you are experiencing by my revelation of reality to you…but you are too proud to admit it and need to fashion a condescending one word dismissal of my thought; well, then I have even less need to know of it.

    >You are also non sequitur.

    That can be applied as an adjective when describing the nature of a point or series of points and arguments…I have never heard of it being applied to a person.

    I do my own reading and my own research. I formulate my own opinions…from a brief review of your oeuvre I can quickly determine that I had more intelligence in utero than you had at the apex of your existence.

    Give me a citation from an reputable online repository of language and make your case…if I am in error…I will be the wiser thereafter.

    1. And that’s enough of that.

      I’m beginning to wonder if “Karen” isn’t some kind of experimental AI bot programmed to post replies it thinks are relevant from related meta terms and algorithms it finds on a test site or discussion thread.

  69. “I have no need to be made cognizant of it.

    Yes. You do.

    A non sequitur can denote an abrupt, illogical, unexpected or absurd turn of plot or dialogue not normally associated with or appropriate to that preceding it. A non sequitur joke has no explanation, but it reflects the idiosyncrasies, mental frames and alternative world of the particular comic persona.

    I prefer to think of non sequiturs as nouns.

  70. It is both a noun and an adjective.

    However the crux of the matter is not whether or not it is one or the other…but whether it can be appropriately used to describe a person.

    You might say a person’s writing style is “non sequitur”…but the person themselves would never fall under the ambit of such castigation.

    Thus your attempt to inveigh against me has fallen flat…as have all attempts by all Your Brothers.

    Seems that way. Pretty bizarre.

    My brain is still trying to recover from skimming over all those comments and not being able to make rational sense out of any of them.

    “I had more intelligence in utero than you had at the apex of your existence”

    Fucking lol. Reminds me of that “You haven’t seen my final form” drugged out chick who broke a window at a McDonald’s because they ran out of Chicken McNuggets.

  72. @Rollo:

    In the last go round I alluded to the fact that I was testing that very hypothesis by inviting her/it to play the game outside those parameters, at a level that requires both understanding and creativity.

    She/it failed.

    This go round she/it made a statement that prima facie displayed a lack of understanding. It could have been a stereotypical female lack of understanding however (chics may dig the car, but they know squat all about it), so I extended the invitation again.

    And it’s like trying to hold a conversation with a deck of flash cards.

  73. Karen – your comments on the Abrahamic religions – there was this French guy – Rene Girard (died just recently) who had some interesting ideas about what original religious systems were actually for – an organized system to deal with the social consequences of the human addiction to “mimetic desire”, and that Judaism was a response to the social consequences of the “scapegoat sacrifice” so-sponsored by the earlier religious systems, and that Christianity was a response to the social consequences of the monotheism so-sponsored by Judaism (the social consequences stemming from the type of difficulties you have alluded to above), and that this most recent response (at least in the west), – i.e. – the Christian ideology as represented by the story of the Passion of Christ, is still being worked out within western culture, even now 2,000 year later, and that the central theme of this latest western incarnation of religion, is basically dealing with human misunderstanding and mishandlings wrt to the egalitarian, and these problems are still not yet resolved (though via the cultural weight of Christianity, the concepts for which an appreciation of the egalitarian is necessary, are slowly being addressed).

    Very interesting stuff.

    Why the continuing human tendency for misunderstanding and mishandlings of the even-hand? Imo – it is our conflicted nature – humans are deeply collaborative but also deeply competitive. The inspiration for collaboration is easier to understand, however the inspiration for our competitive nature – is rather more mysterious, this desire to be exulted within ascending personal power – perhaps the mystery around this human drive is best represented by the ideas around Sex Magick. Maybe that is where western culture is heading for next – a fuller exploration of the concepts around Sex Magick (if so – man that Stanley Kubrick was a genius and a true artist).

    “I’m beginning to wonder if “Karen” isn’t some kind of experimental AI bot programmed to post replies it thinks are relevant from related meta terms and algorithms it finds on a test site or discussion thread.”

    Karen’s posts remind me of the Deepak Chopra random quote generator linked below. She uses big words and seemingly complex ideas, but there is nothing there when you look at what she’s saying. It’s a combination of female sophism and attention whoring with a some male shaming thrown in for good measure. She flutters around changing topics before anyone can call her on her BS, and when someone does call her out, she either ignores them or shifts to a new topic. No one can describe this part of female nature better than Karen herself.
