I will be blunt and honest.
I tire of addressing the war of the sexes. I know it is the number one, hard-wired, biologically programmed thing in both men and women's minds. I know sex and the pursuit of women is the only reason all that you see around you in terms of innovation, creation, and economic production exists. I know that without the other, there is not much else going on, though there are many hobbies and pursuits in life that still make existence and sentience a net positive. But though the opposite sex is the number one thing in life, it gets tiring, because, well, it is tiring. No progress is made, no intellectual honesty comes from the other side, no epiphanies are realized, and nothing is going to change. What we are witnessing among women is their biological programming executing itself as it naturally would in these new socio-economic conditions. And since it is hard-wired, there is not much more to do than acknowledge it, realize it, learn from it, and move on. You are not going to change it. It is the ultimate exercise in stoicism that men must make since action and agency are only incumbent upon you.
But I would be remiss if I did not share an epiphany I had whilst driving back from Moab. And it is one that needs to be shared, realized, and explained as it will have huge ramifications for any men left in the game going forward.
In general, women are programmed to find and consume resources. This is nothing bad or evil, it's just human nature. That is how they survived. They sought resources so that they and their children would survive. In the olden days this meant finding a strong man as a suitor who could provide for and protect her children. Today they find this surrogate in government checks and their careers as they literally do not need no man (fishbicycletrademark). And concurrently with government government support, women divorce their husbands further securing resources (be it alimony or child support). But another aspect of human nature (both male and female) is that they must constantly be progressing. Be that in their career, consuming food, having experiences, "YOLO-ing," education, whatever. Human beings have to constantly progress otherwise they are regressing (which in the past would mean their demise). And you can see this particularly in government policy/politicians.
For example take city councils. Minneapolis municipal politicians have so little to do in their lives they've banned drive thru's (because "global warming.") Multiple cities have banned plastic bags (because again "muh global warming.") And it just took one turtle to have the entire west coast ban plastic straws. These are absurd laws that are going to hurt more than help, but the compunction to constantly be "doing something" compels humans to "progress" all the time even if that progress is in fact damaging.
You combine these two innate human psychological traits and a very scary picture is painted about the future of female behavior. Even with the government supporting them, corporations sexistly hiring them over men, divorce courts handing them billions in resources....
it will never be enough.
It can never be enough.
Because it is human nature to constantly progress.
And so where are they going to get MORE money in the future?
A Problem For Women, A Problem for Men
The problem for women is that men aren't that stupid. Over the generations, men will and have figured things out, and especially so under the light of being replaced by government (not to mention being told we're toxic, are sexist, have privilege, etc.). Men have also have been forcibly shown the light through divorce - either being divorced themselves or seeing their fathers, brothers, and friends get destroyed by divorce. And like any logical creature would, they avoid the pain and cost of divorce by never getting married in the first place (enter complaints of "why can't I find a man" here).
With the internet, the news, statistics...oh...and them witnessing their fathers getting butchered by divorce, younger men have logically eschewed marriage, opting for co-habition or simple bachelorhood instead. You throw in the uphill battle of student loans and affirmative action, and these hurdles make it harder for men to become marriage material (let alone father material), making the choice of video games, porn, and obesity an easier choice. Men are calling it quits on marriage in part because they want to, but also in part because they don't have the funds, leading to the decline in marriage today.
But this presents a problem for women because it essentially removes their entire private sector source of funding and resources. Yes the government will provide. Yes, you will get preferential hiring treatment via affirmative action, even entire make-work industries to employ women so you can make believe you're being a real adult working your "social worker" job. But without a husband to bring home resources, or a husband to divorce that will continue to pay you resources, women's overall income is cut in half. And given human's perpetual need to "progress" and consume more, women are unconsciously having to make up for the loss of marriage/divorce revenue.
This is where it gets dark.
Because without men voluntarily committing to women under the law of marriage, women have to come up with new ways to get money out of men privately instead of relying solely on the government. And while there are certainly upstanding, reputable women who support themselves with their own legitimate careers, without marriage being on the table, women are becoming increasingly desperate to extract more resources out of men. And they're going to do it by making male nature not only toxic, but illegal.
We've already seen the beginnings of this happen. The push to redefine rape and sexual assault is a clear and obvious attempt by feminists (predominantly on campus) to make normal (though perhaps annoying and awkward) male behavior illegal. "Sexual assault" can be a man unconsciously bumping into a woman's breast on a bus, a drunk man getting too handsy at a bar, or an idiot noob calling a girl three times unknowingly attaining the status of stalker. And if a woman is drunk and has consensual sex, that is rape (but the man can drink as much as he wants).
Asking a woman out at work is now a no-no, no matter how much in the past that might have lead to happy marriages, and no matter how much it's none of the employer's business. This, however, optimistically assumes women wanted the advances anyway, and now the natural male act of asking a woman out is enough to get a man fired. It also gives women a powerful weapon to ruin a man's life with an accusation (either true or false) of natural (though regrettable/annoying) male behavior.
There is also the American Psychological Association trying to make masculinity "toxic." Gillette's misandrist, man-hating ad being the real world, private sector incarnation of it. But let that sink in. Natural male behavior is not only toxic, they're trying to make it a mental illness.
And finally, there's the Brett Kavanaugh nomination. This disaster was not so much a disaster because of its politics, absurdity, and exposing the democrats for just the most amoral self-serving scum they are, but the "believe all women" psychopathy that followed. It was an attempt to get society to believe that women should be believed, all the time, everytime, with absolutely no proof. Any intellectually honest person can see where such a warped power and bias could lead to tyranny and oppression. But what is really scary is damn well near half the population believes in "believing all women" regardless of proof. And any man who's been assaulted by his wife, but was the one who got arrested is aware of the Duluth Model and how it absolutely does NOT deliver justice, but tyranny.
The Jump from Social Shaming to Codified Law
All of this is merely feminists, some women, and socialists (male or female) sharpening their knives and preparing men for the slaughter. If they can't get men to support them through marriage-and-then-divorce, they will get men to support them by making normal male behavior illegal and a suable offense. And what makes this a particularly dangerous trap is that it relies on the strongest biological force in the universe - the male sex drive.
So if you ask out Suzie in accounting on a date, you may not only lose your job, but you might get a law suit.
You make a drunken pass at a girl at a party, the cops are showing up at the door.
You didn't get the consent form signed and the "happy after-sex text," and now you're facing 5-10 for rape, but also owe the lady reparations.
What's scary is how so much of this is already happening in extreme cases, or cases where there is no law, but a circus court nonetheless (namely, universities and HR departments). But it is not that far of a jump to where male behavior goes from an unwanted act to an illegal one that you are then entitled to compensation for. And as less and less men get married, and fewer and fewer resources are being offered to women via non-governmental venues, I fear in the future male behavior will be perniciously punished with fees, taxes, fines, and other forms of wealth transfers to compensate women for this loss of income.
The Law of Unintended Consequences
Unfortunately, what is likely to happen is just an acceleration of what is happening now. A retreating of men for society. A divestment from society by men. And with that increasing withdrawal of men from society, women and socialists will have to enact increasingly draconian laws to continue to extract resources from unmarried men for male behavior. This will only further push men away from society (but especially women), and thus result in a downward spiral where merely interacting with women will be deemed too risky a behavior (already manifested by many men following The Pence Rule).
This will have the added and regrettable effect of putting men and women into their own respective echo chambers, radicalizing them to hate one another. Women will increasingly seethe at men for their oppression, patriarchy, etc., etc., but will also seethe at the lack of "real men" that are available for them to date (and what rare "real man" they find will be so rare, he will never commit to them, driving them to hate men further). Men will just (frankly) be scared shitless to have any dealings with women - romantic, sexual, social, or financial - because any interaction will be too risky. And, thus, with no prospects of marriage on the table, will continue their retreat into video games, porn, netflix, and NEETdom. Marriage and birthing rates will drop, ponzi welfare systems dependent on growing populations will crash, cultures will be wiped out, and society will reset itself all over again as there will no longer be a "government" to rely upon, forcing women (however regrettably) to put men and not government checks at the center of their lives.
It may not happen today. And will likely not happen tomorrow. But young men should be aware that the phenomenon of taxing men for male behavior in lieu of marriage-and-divorce is a very real possibility in the future. And for us older men who have completely checked out or gone ghost, it will be a very interesting movie to watch as we all enjoy the show and, of course, Enjoy the Decline.
