Competency

A while back reader Looking for Zion had a great comment wondering why it is women seem to have such a preoccupation with complaining to men so much:

Yesterday I was listening to a blogger talking about that Antifa Girl, then I saw a video by Camille Paglia on how women need to stop blaming men. By the time I read this essay I was already wondering, Why do women blame men (for everything)?

I mean, for example, no matter how good women have it here in the US, it’s never enough. They say, “We still have far to go.” What the fuck does that mean? They’ve achieved everything except becoming President and Vice-President – and only failed at that cause the worst possible candidate was put up. They’re astronauts, brain surgeons, CEOs, soldiers, pilots, MMA fighters…. I mean, short of a penis, what are they really missing?

Then I read this essay and it dawned on me: Women are biologically programmed to blame men for any and all perceived failures or shortfalls, because for millennia they have depended solely upon men (at the societal, tribal, and family level) for everything, particularly their very survival.

Whether it’s the nagging wife blaming her husband for her unhappiness, or the feminist harpy blaming men for WHATEVER, it is in female DNA and thus beyond their control to stop blaming “men” for anything they perceive to be wrong (in the absence of men standing firm and telling them to STFU). Males are always the scapegoat because men, until recently, were always the protectors and leaders of the female species.

When I woke up this morning, that realization led me to connect another dot: The patriarchy is not some ephemeral construct, or a male conspiracy. The patriarchy is IN WOMEN’S DNA.

From the time that the first single-celled creatures sprang forth from the waters of the Earth, life evolved toward the creation of homo-sapiens. Billions of years of genetic code formed a male dominant human dynamic that feminists and cultural Marxists have tried to re-engineer for a comparatively measly 50-60 years. But social engineering can NOT overwrite biology.

So good luck trying to “smash the Patriarchy” ladies, because the patriarchy is inside you. It was a survival mechanism selected for over eons. The patriarchy will always be there, like a splinter in your mind – unless and until enough time and genetic mutations have passed after men as a whole have given up and let you completely rule the world however you see fit.

With this, Zion is coming into an understanding of the evolved psychological underpinnings of intersexual relations. Women’s innate predilection to complain is just one aspect of women’s evolved nature that socialization or, if you like, “higher order thinking” finds ways to cover up, but never really change. Whether it’s women’s capacity to move on from a former lover (War Brides), women’s subconscious shit testing for men’s fitness, or the uglier aspects of Hypergamy, the underlying motivators for much of what we dismiss as ‘women just being women’ is rooted in how they evolved to interact with men.

Recently I cam across a video of Jordan B. Peterson explaining the evolutionary logistics involved in women’s sexual selection process. You can watch the video here, but the short version confirms exactly what Zion is coming to realize; the seeds of Patriarchy is literally written into women’s DNA, and by extension into larger human society’s social and intersexual make up.

Women’s sexual selection, women’s Hypergamous sexual strategy (Alpha Fucks / Beta Bucks), is what creates the condition of the male dominance hierarchy. By the social extension of this hierarchy, based on women’s evolved conditions for male Hypergamous acceptability, we see what perceptually looks like Patriarchy. Indeed, this has been the dominant social order – with women creating covert personal and social contingencies to exploit it – up until the time of unilaterally female-controlled hormonal birth control and the subsequent sexual revolution.

As Zion noted, billions of years of genetic code formed a male dominant human dynamic that feminists and cultural Marxists have tried to re-engineer for a comparatively measly 50-60 years. And it’s correct that social engineering cannot overwrite biology. However, that isn’t to say that social and scientific engineering can’t give women more control over their sexual selection process as well as making every effort to absolve them of the responsibilities associated with this new control. If I disagree with anything Peterson asserts in this video it’s that our social order for the last 60-70 years has been one founded on unfettering and insuring women’s sexual strategy and applying the consequences and costs of women’s control over it directly to men. Presently, we live in a feminine-primary social order, but it’s founded on the default presumption of an oppressive, inherently sexist, misogynistic Patriarchy that still clings to a social contract that hasn’t existed since the time of the Sexual Revolution.

Our feminine-primary social order is a reflection of how intersexual dynamics have shifted to favor the female and the female sexual strategy. The male dominance hierarchy and the qualifications of it are still dependent upon women’s evolved Hypergamy, only now, in light of how women have been insured against any real liability for their sexual selection choices, the prioritization of those hierarchal qualifications have shifted. There is still a “patriarchy” created by women’s sexual strategy, but now this male dominance hierarchy is primarily founded on the Alpha Fucks side of the Hypergamous equation.

Evolution of Complaining

The fact that complaining seems to come so natural to women is something we kind of take for granted, in fact so much so that we will make jokes about it and think nothing of it. We can interpret this also from the ‘men display, women choose’ principle. There is an expectation that men will qualify themselves for a woman’s intimate approval – whether or not they do so is irrelevant, it is women’s expectation of performance from men. Men being innate idealists, as well as deductive problem solvers, it only follows that men (majority being Beta) would make their best efforts to solve women’s problems as a primary element of their sexual strategy. The deductive logic is: Solve a woman’s problems and in exchange she will reciprocate with her intimacy.

This, in a nutshell, is what constitutes most men’s Game in their earliest attempts to get with a woman, and really why wouldn’t it? Boys are taught a default deference to “respect” the female sex from an early age. This deference is where the expectation of performance begins, and taken to the extreme it can end up as the Savior Schema and expectations of women reciprocating in Relational Equity. This is where many Betas have their ‘game’ disillusioned for them. They see the guys who do not perform for women in a direct manner being rewarded with intimacy while they are shamed for their ‘Niceties’ – the behaviors they’ve always been taught will endear women to them – and shamed for expecting intimacy in exchange for solving women’s problems.

But really, what is women’s complaining about? The facility with which women will complain to men makes evident their need for security and this security need flows from the provisioning side of Hypergamy. As I’ve said many times before, Hypergamy is rooted in an existential doubt – is this guy the best she can do? It’s important to put this doubt into context though; bear in mind that there are two sides to Hypergamy – short term sexual, genetic optimization (Alpha Fucks) and long term security, safety and parental investment optimization (Beta Bucks). Both sides of women’s pluralistic sexual strategy always have doubt attached to them. And as Zion implied, even when women are assured of security that doubt still persists.

When we consider women’s subconscious need to shit test men we also need to see that women’s complaining is part of her subconscious attempting to reconcile this doubt with a man she’s invested herself in. It is indeed written into women’s mental firmware that men are to be looked to as the problem solvers.

A while ago Deti had a great comment on one of Dalrock’s posts:

Some of the best depictions of shit testing and comfort testing in media are in Mad Men, where Betty brings some concern to Don. Some concerns are serious; some are frivolous and trivial. Almost all the time, Don faces her and says something like “Bets, you’re tired. You’re upset. And it’s all understandable. It’ll be OK. Just go get some sleep, and we’ll figure it out in the morning.” And that’s all Betty needed to hear. Don has it under control. He explains to her what’s going on, and says he (or they) will get it taken care of.

That’s passing comfort tests with flying colors.

A shit test is depicted where Megan (his second wife) is cleaning their apartment in her bra and panties. She taunts him, saying “you can’t have any of this”, while on hands and knees in a clearly sexually provocative position, all the while looking back at him to gauge his response. He then proceeds to pull her to her feet, kisses her, and has sex with her on the living room floor. She willingly submits to him.

That’s passing a shit test with flying colors. And that really is a shit test – she’s being a total bitch to Don and stating a literal challenge to his masculinity. It’s “I’m here, calling you less than a man and depriving you of something we both know you want. You don’t have what it takes to stand up to me. What are you gonna do about it?”

You cannot make a woman “Happy”, however, this does not preclude a woman’s innate need to see you as either a confident problem solver (as in Draper’s exchange with Betty) or a guy who “Just Gets It” (as in the shit test example with Megan). I believe Deti is correct here, but I think we can make a distinction between a woman’s need to test for a comfort versus a shit test of sexual selection.

I would argue that a comfort test comes from women’s deep need for security in a chaotic world. A comfort test, and I would include complaining and nagging in this, is rooted in a woman’s Hypergamous need of certainty and consistency in provisioning. A persistent complaint is really a cry for security and confirmation of a man’s competency. Male dominance will always require a superior competency in virtually all matters. That may not be realistic or pragmatic, but it is the expectation, and this need for competency finds its roots in men understanding and accepting their Burden of Performance.

A shit test, on the other hand, is a challenge of a man’s savvy with regard to reading, interpreting and acting upon a woman’s covert communications of sexual competency. Shit tests, even subconscious or unintentional ones, are initiated to gauge whether a man Just Gets It with regard to a woman’s sexual subcommunications. It is a test designed to determine a man’s Alpha potential and his capacity to push past his social programming and go after (even physically) what he wants sexually – hopefully that’s the woman giving him the indicators. It is a test of a man’s capacity to understand that the Medium is the Message.

One reason that Amused Mastery is such an effective PUA technique is because – when understood and applied well – it serves to satisfy both sides of these tests. It implies competency in both problem solving and sexual viability.

Lastly, I should also point out that both of these tests of competency are part of women’s evolved, psychological firmware. Women can certainly deliver these tests with malice, intent and forethought, but as to why these tests would be significant from an evolutionary perspective, only her subconscious is aware of it. Both tests have the latent purpose to establish a man’s competency in either the Alpha Fucks or Beta Bucks aspect of a woman’s Hypergamy.

“Whaddaya wanna do?” “I dunno – whadda YOU wanna do?” That’s a funny exchange when two bros do it over and over (I think it’s from the old movie “Marty”).

“Whaddaya wanna do?”
“I dunno – whadda YOU wanna do?”

When I did RCIA years ago and they were yammering on about “mutual submission”, I pointed out exactly this dynamic as the reason why “mutual submission” (a) doesn’t ever work in real life, and (b) only arouses female contempt. Naturally this taste of redpill (before I even knew what that was) was rejected indignantly by the bluepill crowd in the class.

@NBTM

A woman tests are often biologically driven…if a man is unconsciously competent at passing these tests, he doesn’t worry about passing them. If a man is developing competence, then it may require effort. It’s always an alpha trait to be able to calibrate other people’s psychological states.

Hypergamy causes women to test men. If you don’t care about passing tests, then you may as well limit your sex to one time sexual encounters, because even spinning plates requires men to pass tests.

it seems that you are objecting to biology.

The Patriarchy is created by women, and will re-emerge due to women’s direct actions. The gigantic 50 yr old shit test, that the West is currently failing will yield a supremely male dominant ZFG patriarchy for the ages. This has already been discussed by many.

One other aspect of the complaining is laziness and men as utility.

But really, what is women’s complaining about?

“…after sniffing such tears, men experienced reduced self-rated sexual arousal, reduced physiological measures of arousal, and reduced levels of testosterone. Finally, functional magnetic resonance imaging revealed that sniffing women’s tears selectively reduced activity in brain substrates of sexual arousal in men.”

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21212322

“Significant (P<0.001) relative (%) increases in testosterone concentrations were noted with watching the erotic, humorous, aggressive and training videos (versus control and sad), with testosterone decreasing significantly (versus control) after the sad clip.

I think that performing and women are a male plight. We have to engage in a way where the shit testing is manifested as a test but that the awareness in the process is not ruined. You see a relationship as something that collides with sex as both party’s understand the unfolding dynamic in front of them. Women don’t seem Biologically able to define how this works. The thing about the process that’s the most fun is channeling the stress into something fun that overall works its way into nagging and play.

Q. What do women want? A.1. More. (A.2. Who cares?) Q. Why do women constantly complain? A. Because they FEEL that what they currently have or do is never enough. And a man is somehow always to blame. Does Dread temper this? Does the prospect of the loss of a woman’s man actually prompt her to think rationally (albeit for a very short time) that she could lose what she does have?

” I guess it depends on whether she can make a sober analysis of what is potentially lost and the likelihood that she can replace it (or improve upon it).”

Women think with their feelings. They know when they lose those feelings. The tricky bit for guys is understanding that bad feelings are part of the good feelings.

My ex certainly says that divorcing me was the stupidest thing she had ever done. A week after the divorce was final she was trying to coerce me into remarrying her. I flatly turned her down. Seems that after a couple decades of pedestalization by me she was believing her own press. She found out her market value was not as much as she believed. So yeah, regret on her part.

“….Well, ladies, it looks like you got what you wished for – good luck with that.”

Women today did not wish for the current circumstances. Just like Blue pill betas never wished for their circumstance.

Both circumstances are driven from without. Time and generations make them perpetual.

I’m convinced they got what they wished for. What are the comparative numbers of young women who get themselves The Pill with the intent that it is to prevent a pregnancy through rape? Or only because they are in a committed relationship? No, it’s with full knowledge that they WANT to ride the Carousel. No one forces them. Unless you want to excuse them because of societal (FI) influences. In which case, Blue Pill guys can claim the same. What women “wished” for was “to have it all”. They were sold a bill of goods – get miles of cock,… Read more »

Could you please expand on the “bad feelings being part of the good feelings”? I am (quite sincerely) just on the edge of understanding what you mean by this (I think).

Just for the sake of making an argument, there is a ( much disputed, yet true ) letter that was supposedly written by William ” willie ” Lynch and a speech delivered to slave owners gathered on the banks of the James River in Virginia. Willie said a lot of stuff, but what has always struck me and made me think very hard, is his admonition that one must gain control over the children. You control the children from cradle to grave. You train and teach them whatever you’d like. And key to this training is in the breaking of… Read more »

Thanks, gentlemen. I think the difficulty for a lot of men will be maintaining inconsistency. Not consistency. By this I mean that most men tend to be logical creatures. If a complaint appears to be reasonable, is made reasonably and within his ability to fulfill, he will. Even though he shouldn’t, or should only do so rarely. On the other hand, an unreasonable complaint, or one made unreasonably, or outside of his ability, he will try to counter with logic. This is obviously a mistake. I think that in these instances he should approach the complaint either by ignoring it/her,… Read more »

For my own observations,a complaining woman is on a course for diversionary tactics,and up to no good. She is either playing a game with a stacked deck or breaking my rules in some way.

Like Ton say my shit is weak,and she thinks she can divert my attention to something other than her deviations or she is pushing a frame grab..

Anyway this is an opportunity for some new jokes about whoever or whatever the complaint is on,agree and amplify she will get glad in the same panties she got mad in.

But, biology. That shit can’t ever really be beaten. Biological drives are a true motherfucker. Over the past 50 – 60 years, those natural, undefeatable drives have been corrupted. They still exist, but the mechanisms have been bastardized. Yep, or rather, became unshackled from their equally biological controls/consequences. I agree that the messaging sold a bill of goods and that this had a huge impact — no question. From my perspective, though, this would have never had the impact that it had if the messaging hadn’t happened at the same time that affordable, reliable and legal contraception and abortion both… Read more »

“You can’t bitch about biological forces and then say 10 or 20 years matters.”

Biological forces aren’t different today. Men are still polygamous, and women hypergamous. However, that same biological constant, doesn’t have the same effect in Afghanistan and Italy.

The point isn’t to bitch about the changes which effectively overruled the biological constraint on the expression of female sexuality, the point is the adapt to them, which is where game does come in. Game doesn’t roll changes back, it allows you to adapt to the changes instead of being rolled by them.

@ Johnny come late lay I’m an old man, he he he. I’ll tell you the same thing I used to tell Ya – age really isn’t as important as paying attention. Chronological age doesn’t automatically render one dumb, deaf and blind. Are you planning to game millions and millions of women simultaneously? Or are you going to tackle a handful here and there? Game isn’t about rolling back fundamental changes en mass ( unless every man on the planet were to become game and rp savy.).

@Blax Pua when executed with proper understanding will get you laid, but that’s pretty much it ( see mystery , Tyler, and a few more pua masters that turned a bright shade of blue when trying to have ltr’s or relationships with women/mother of their children ). Game works in LTRs just like in STRs…but if you’re a PUA who doesn’t get that, you’ll have to Next a lot of women or you’ll end up getting betaized like pua masters mystery, et. al. LTRs are a lot of work if you don’t have unconscious competency as far as Game goes.… Read more »

@Novaseeker There’s one more factor to add, antibiotics. For centuries syph was a long term death sentence, with insanity for the last few years. It’s why the condom was invented, perhaps. Even in the 20th century syphillus killed and gonorrhea sterilized. The mental hospitals in the 50’s and early 60’s contained old, insane, terminal stage cases of syph who were too far gone to be cured. Also antibiotics made surgery much safer than sulfa drugs had. All surgery, including abortions. Nobody knows how many illegal abortions were done in the US and England during and right after WWII but it… Read more »

After the story broke, Swedish police came under sharp criticism for allegedly covering up the assaults that had reportedly been committed by Afghan migrants. Prosecutors refused to look into the accusations, however.

Game does in fact work in ltr’s quite well. Depends on what level of game understanding one posses though. If the game in question follows just applying kino, comfort and negs without grasping underlying mechanisms will eventually lead a man up against a mighty wall. Hence the apprehension often stated by the occasional commenter here that it seems like way too much work to have to game an ltr or wife. The understanding of game has not been internalized and remains a formulaic routine. Dog logic is for dogs only. Like the OP points to, bitching and complaining on the… Read more »

“…the default presumption of an oppressive, inherently sexist, misogynistic Patriarchy that still clings to a social contract that hasn’t existed since the time of the Sexual Revolution.” The presumption is applied to maintain beta male subservience. Alpha males, for the most part, ignore this, along with women’s ceaseless complaining. Protip: Turn the noisy end away from you. “… in light of how women have been insured against any real liability for their sexual selection choices…” Expecting women to independently accept responsibility, for anything beyond making, suckling babies, is a fool’s errand. Women rarely, if ever, kill themselves for job, relationship… Read more »
