Why I Need Feminism

The Forced Lemonade Stand

Let me tell you the horrifically inefficient, expensive, and painful route I took to get here.

First, there was wasting 13 years in K-12 school where I learned nothing, was taught nothing, and was a solid C student as my mind was put to sleep by low-IQ, overpaid babysitters in the form of teachers.

Then, like every idiot raised by Boomers, I went to college because I would fail miserably and never amount to anything unless I attended otherwise. 

I additionally and idiotically majored in something I enjoyed, and though ostensibly "Finance" was an employable degree on paper, it was a completely worthless business degree that nearly all business degrees are.

Still, I was good at finance, math, and economics, so good in fact I graduated 5th in my class while working full time and graduating 6 months early, AND with no parental or govermental support.  This doomed me to keep trying to work in finance/banking as I mistook the corrupt, inefficient banks I worked for as bad luck, and not something endemic to the entire industry I was employed in.  It would not be until the housing crash of 2008 would I realize that while my degree was an otherwise fine degree, it was only employable in a dysfunctional industry and I had effectively wasted 17 years of education.

Since my employment was never secure (always ramming heads with management about not approving doomed-to-fail loans, etc.) I had to be on the constant lookout for alternative forms of employment, ranging from everything from security work to ballroom dance instruction to online classes to being a radio show host.  But a more curious development was the advent of self-publishing, wherein I was able to predict the housing collapse of 2008 and published my first book.

This "forced entrepreneurship" (along with increasing bandwidth on the internet) was unknowingly laying down the foundation for what would become my "career" today.  Once I learned that the Boomer managerial class had no clue what it was doing (bank bailouts, forcing everybody to go to college, their own failure to save for retirement, their olympic performance in divorce, etc.) an incredible anger, rage, hatred and desire for revenge took over.  And after having not one thing I was promised by my Boomer predecessors materialize in my life, I would never again "do what I was told," but would instead lash out at this generation by speaking the truth, pointing out their lies, mocking and ridiculing the hypocrites of society, and spitting in their face.  This was my now my "new profession," unprofessional as it was.

Thinking such blunt-force-trauma-truth would ensure I would never be employed again, it had quite the opposite effect.  Turns out many people were also sick and tired of being lied to by parents, boomers, politicians, and their teachers.  Like me they had gone down a tortuous path of doing what they were told, never getting what they were promised, and realizing they had wasted nothing short of their youth.  And though not the economist or credit analyst career I had hoped to have, these people would pay to hear the truth, hear how to salvage their lives, how to make it count, or just hear me rant and ridicule against the boomers, teachers, socialists, professors, journalists, and politicians who led them to waste their lives.  This resulted in a suite of books that sell pretty well for a self-published guy, cathartic podcasts that at least provide sanity to its listeners, and a consulting company that is the only consulting company in the world that markets truth. 
It wasn't the career I was aiming for, but it was a Lee Iococcan turn around story that made one heck of a lemonade stand out of a bucket full of lemons.

Sex Is Economics

But while it was predominantly economics, finance, and politics that forced me down this path, an interesting phenomenon occurred.  Yes, people were interested in their personal finances, wealth, and overall economic situation.  Yes, people were terribly worried about the housing crash and the ensuing "Great Recession.".  And one of my books pre-addressed one of the largest financial crises/lies-told-by-boomers to face the US (student loans).  But understand there was a much larger, underlying economic force driving all of these financial concerns and phenomenon.  A force that was responsible for nearly all economic actions, all economic production, and all my clients' questions.  And though it took some time to suss it out, it made crystal clear sense once it did.  Because all my clients' questions were not so much about "401k's" or "which degree should I major in" or "what lie did Boomers tell me this time," but something much more fundamental.  So fundamental in fact, it's what drives TOTAL GLOBAL ECONOMIC PRODUCTION, even the existence of the human race.  And so whether the questions were are about retirement, personal budgeting, or how to buy a car, all of them were ultimately about one thing and one thing only - sex.

Admittedly, this large, underlying economic force is more than just mere "sex."  It certainly is the sex that leads to family formation which keeps the human race going.  And without this human race there would be no "economics," just animals eating each other on the planet.  We could also say "love" as it is love that prompts men to propose, start families, and propagate the species (though with divorce at 50% and illegitimate births at 42%, I'd argue it's more "sex" than "love" or "family").  But regardless of how euphemistically you want to spin it, "sex/love/family creation" was the number one thing on nearly all my clients' minds.  Nearly ALL of their decisions led to that.  And since sex/love/family is really the only thing for humans to do on this planet before they die, the pursuit of the opposite sex is the epitome of economics.  And so what you would have noticed over the course of my haphazard "career" was a slow shift in focus from student loan bubbles, housing bubbles, federal deficits, and recessions to that of the pursuit of the opposite sex - namely men pursuing women (because - let's just be honest - men take agency in this pursuit, women, just sit there).

I understood this "ultimate economic" pursuit because I am afterall a man.  But what I couldn't understand was the volume of men seeking my advice. Why there were so many men not only asking me about financial matters (which in reality was ultimately to "get da girlz"), but twice that asking me about women?  What also confused me was just how bad, misinformed, and otherwise completely hopeless many of these men were when it came to women.  Many of them were fat, never hit the gym, lived at home, and the worst cardinal sin, some were short!  But no matter how desperate, they kept coming in droves, asking me time and time again: 
"How to get da girlz?"

Inevitably, this never-ending volume of clueless men started to anger me because there seemed no end to them.  Additionally, I was enraged at the intellectual-dishonesty of some of these men as they cowardly and vainly searched for ways to get women, without putting in the necessary work of hitting the gym, getting in shape, making good money, and working on their personalities/charm.  They wanted to "get da girlz," but were too lazy to work for it, hoping I had the cheat code and would share such a thing with them if I had.  Regardless, as my contempt started to grow for this cabal of men seeking to get girls by "avoiding the gym," it wasn't until I had a spate of young men who came from particularly disadvantaged backgrounds did I realize what was really going on.  And these unfortunate men all had something in common and this commonality explained their utter cluelessness when it came to women.  They all hailed from single-mom homes.  And not just single-mom homes, but broken homes where their mothers would do anything from:
  • stealing their childrens' social security numbers to open up credit cards in their names
  • threaten to kick their children out of the home if they joined the military or entered college as they would lose section 8 housing allowances
  • threaten to disown their children if they didn't send money back ome
  • to bring abusive new boyfriends/husbands into the family when these men were boys
Admittedly, these were the more-extreme cases.  But it highlighted a common variable across nearly all my male clients - they were all raised by their moms.  Not necessarily single-moms, but "raised by moms" as the father could be present in the household, but the children still predominantly raised by the mother.

Here, nearly every client of mine fell into this spectrum.  Be it an abusive, ghetto trash single-mom kicking her son out because he wanted to attend college and she would lose section 8 money.  Or the presumably squeaky clean nuclear family where behind closed doors the ball-busting wife called the shots as the timid husband let her have the reigns to the family in fear of divorce.  Regardless of where they fell, they were all raised by their moms.  But it wasn't just my clients who fell into this spectrum, but nearly all generations of men today, as another interesting, underlying sociological force was at play.  And this underlying, sociological force was what was driving all these helpless, clueless men to my front door and in the incomprehensible numbers I was witnessing.



Much as you may or may not detest feminism, you have to give it one thing.  It's certainly popular and very successful within western civilization.  Nearly every woman (and man) will claim to be a feminist.  Law has been created to give women preferential treatment in society via affirmative action, lowering of standards, and quotas.  They're still not getting drafted.  They receive 5 times the amount in scholarship aid for college.  They have total and complete control of reproduction.  And the judicial system is heavily biased in their favor when it comes to family/divorce (check out the "Duluth Model").

And this says nothing of the social acceptance, celebration, even enforcement of feminism at nearly every stage and aspect in western life.

You cannot hear anything but applause and accolades about women from kindergarten-till-death.  Women are encouraged to do anything and everything, with no regards to reality or feasibility.  Corporate America, the education system, media, and all our institutions celebrate women and feminism.  Single moms are heroic.  Fat women are beautiful.  We even tax our population to create entire educational programs and work programs so that women can be employed in completely fabricated industries (social work, academia, non-profits, activists, etc.) so society's unproductive women can feel good about themselves too.  Feminism has gotten so popular, so imperative, that when Blasey-Ford accused Justice Kavanaugh of sexual assault, we were told to ignore the lack of evidence, let alone the concept of innocent-until-proven-guilty, and just "believe all women."  Feminism is not just "very popular."  It is totally and completely popular as it now trumps reality, sanity, and ethics in many cases.

But there are costs to such a skewed, warped, and ultimately, wrong, environment.  You can't have a binary species where one sex is exalted and the other vilified, one sex celebrated and the other ignored, or one sex living at the expense of the other.  Because no matter what hack social theories these social scientists and feminists pulled out of their privileged suburbanite asses these past 50 years, it doesn't undo 2 million years of human evolution.  Men and male nature have to be considered for society to function.  And so what has happened is our matriarchal-skewed society has raised generations of men in the eyes of what women want...just not what they want to fuck or fall in love with.
And I need to state that again, because it's very important.
Feminism has successfully raised several generations of men that they want, NOT what they want to fuck or fall in love with.  And here is where the men are beating a path to my Lucy-Lemonade-Stand door.  
Because men are truly not interested in becoming what women want.  They only want to fuck and (maybe if the right girl comes along) fall in love.  But men make the understandable error of thinking if they become what women say they want, they will get laid and ultimately find love.  When in reality, feminism is so myopic, and never considers men in their social science calculations, that the prescription they give men to fill is wrong, and thus does not tickle the sexual fancies of women or compel them to fall in love with said men.  Thus, you have a bunch of agreeable, sensitive, effeminate, politically correct, doormats.  Not the honest to god real men women want to fuck or fall in love with.  But precisely what feminists ordered.

This confuses the effeminate, politically correct doormats because from the age of 0 on they've had their:

teachers (mostly women, btw)
television, and

tell them to be agreeable, effeminate, politically correct doormats.  And so when they ask out dozens, hundreds, arguably thousands of women over their lives, but none of these women go out with them, let alone fuck them, let alone fall in love with them, they are horrifically confused.  They were TOLD to be sensitive, kind, and nice.  They were told to be socialists or socialist lites.  They were told to defer to women in nearly every regard.  And never once were they told to go to the gym.  Much like every generation under the tutelage of the baby boomers, they did precisely what women told them to do, but were never delivered anything they were promised.  And so ultimately confused, sexually frustrated, and running low on time, they inevitably search the internet for answers...

which lands them at my doorstep.

And I get to charge them $100/hour to tell them what society, feminists, their mothers, their sisters, their fathers, their professors, their teachers, and the politicians won't tell them.  The truth.

Look on the Bright Side

To this day it still angers me the totality of lies we tell young men and women about the sexes.  Feminism has ruined the best thing in men's and women's lives (each other) for one another.  Feminism is in practice the hatred and discrimination against men.  Feminism has caused immeasurable psychological frustration amongst men and women.  And on simple principle, it grinds my gears when a group of people use a trait they were born with (not earned) to extrapolate special treatment at the expense of society.  Thus, like all lies, feminism is a disease, it is a cancer, it is a scourge upon society, and it has cost generations of the most important thing in life - love.

But bad as they are, scourges are a benefit to some, and not just the individuals propagating the scourge.

For example, crime. 

Unfortunate and costly as crime is, it is a fact of human nature.  Some humans (much like feminists) are going to want to advance themselves at the expense of innocent others.  But in crime being a scourge upon society, society reacts to it with the formation of a legal system, a judicial system, and police.  And though these people/systems are not contributing anything new or good to society, they are preventing bad things from happening to society  And though we'd like to live in a world without crime, a consolation prize to the fact we can't is millions of people are therefore employed as a consequence of crime.

The same thing can be said of disease.

Nobody likes cancer.  Nobody likes the common cold.  And certainly nobody likes COVID.  But without these poxes upon society, we would have no doctors, no nurses, no surgeons, nor medical researchers.  And since we have no choice in whether or not we live in a world without disease, we thankfully have medical professionals there to fight disease.  And as a benefit to them, they find gainful and productive employment.

And this is why I desperately need feminism.

Because for all of its drawbacks, for all of the pain its inflicted upon society, for all of the generations of women it's duped into wasting their lives on careers, commutes, and taxes, instead of love, children, and spouses, like cancer, it's an undeniable fact feminism is here.  It is a reality.  It is a pox currently scourging society.  And while originally I did want to become an economist, helping society advance itself to incredible standards of living, eliminating poverty, and extending life expectancies, life had different plans for me.  And thus instead of pouring over spreadsheets and doing mathematical calculations while programming boring computer models, I get to...

yell at the internet.

Instead of commuting to an office, paying for parking, and working in a cubicble, I get from home in my pajamas after I wake up at 10AM and have my morning coffee.

Instead of sitting in meetings getting yelled at because the numbers didn't come in the way my corrupt boomer boss needed them to come in at so he could collect a send me thank you letters for preventing them from majoring in a worthless degree.

And instead of having to sit through CPE classes, MBA courses, buck for promotion, and tolerate mandatory "diversity/sexual harassment training," I get to...grab a cigar, sit at a bar, and outline my next book warning men and women about the future lies feminism is guaranteed to be telling them in the future.

Yes.  Society is going to hell in a hand basket.
Yes.  Feminism is ruining the lives of millions of people, women especially.
Yes.  I don't produce any new, advancing, or of progress to society.  My career is simply preventing bad shit from happening to society.

But if it weren't for feminism, I wouldn't have the great job I got now.

Thankfully (or if you have ethics "unfortunately"), it looks like I got life-long employment.  Feminism is as strong as it ever was and young people today swallow it whole.  Gen Z men are looking just as "soy-y" as their Millennial siblings.  And Gen Z women just as tatted up, purple haired-feminist as their Millennial sisters.  Younger generations are majoring in stupid subjects at the same 80% rate as previous generations.  And all young Americans are being brainwashed to value themselves based on traits, politics, and not accomplishments.  As in generations past, teachers, parents, guidance counselors are doing the same shitty job they've always done raising the young boys and girls today who will become the future tomorrow.  And it is a guarantee today's mothers will be divorcing today's fathers at rates on par with boomers, destroying today's young children in the process.  And through all these lies, chaos, feminism, broken homes, student debt, impoverishment, divorce, and just plain evil, will come a consistent stream of horribly pained and confused clients.  And they will be so pained and confused, they will become desperate enough to question everything they were told by feminists, socialists, parents, and teachers, they will search some key questions on the internet, and walk into my digital office more than happy to pay my fee to make the pain go away.

I want to thank the feminists.
I want to thank the boomers.
I want to thank the single mothers and deadbeat dads.
I want to thank the marxist teachers.
I want to thank the usurious professors who charged their students $600/credit for worthless degrees.
I want to thank the socialists.

I want to thank all of you.  Because without you, but especially the feminists, I'd have to work a real job.

Great article Aaron. Since it isn't reasonable for young men in the West nowadays to aspire for a decent wife and kids, what is your opinion on a young man creating a business around the "enjoy the decline" model, specifically related the fast-growing area of cam girls / instathots. I would still try and remain mostly anonymous while creating the business in this area but ultimately it is a morally bankrupt endeavour but one that I would bet can be very profitable.

Nah, thanks but I’m good. I got my thirty by thirty, think I’ll take time to relax now. I’ll still hit the gym, if only to maintain. But women right now are preposterously toxic. If some pussy lands in my lap I’ll take it. Chase after it? Not a chance.

Here’s an interesting thought experiment: if every man in the West was ripped and shredded, well-versed and could carry on an interesting conversation, and had balls to approach. What do you think the sexual marketplace would look like then? Does the term bottoming out come to mind?

"But if it weren't for feminism, I wouldn't have the great job I got now."

Don't be so sure about that.

In another age and time, you'd be just another mortician camping out on the corpse of the body public waiting for one of the devoutly confused to step through the doors with a recently deceased pet.

This is also why you're not quite Management material: this Captain Save-A-Bro routine of yours has all of the earnestness of a truly admirable Whisky Priest routine, but you have yet to capitalise it to such a point where you have your own mega-church.

After all, how else would you fund the giant vat of faeces and offal into which you'll throw your money so you can observe what lengths people would go to get something for nothing?

All aboard the SS Captain Save-A-Bro! :-)

Very satisfying beat down... I too have seethed with disgust and anger for the lies we were fed. We didn't have the internet, we only had the TV, our peers, and the snake oil salesmen to mold us.

Great article. It's good to see that some are able to capitalize on events while still telling the truth and helping others. Hopefully civilization will last long enough for you to enjoy a comfortable retirement some day.

Congratulations! I know you're not a religious guy, but you should thank God (or whatever you want to thank, such as Coronachan) once a day for the stupidity of feminism. Just once, because without feminism, you would have to work. I envy you! Of course with Coronachan, everything has been revealed. Stupid people will still go on being stupid, regardless of how many credentials (degrees) they have attained. Not really learning anything other than what has been spoon fed to them via their marxist teachers and professors. Good for you, potential clients of Cappy's services!

Again, CONGRATULATIONS! Figuring out how not to work and get paid for it, is pure genius!

After many years of trying to understand male/female differences in perception and desires, I have stepped back (devolved?) to this:

The true result of evolution is to equalize the attributes of men & women.

By which I mean that when seen clearly from the perspective of Nature, we are all equal. Obviously not physically, mentally or emotionally, but when these are examined separately, overall there's equilibrium. It takes effort to perceive this, as our rose-tinted spectacles deceive and add bias.

To see the truth of this assertion, consider any other species on the planet. Do the male & female members accept their roles? Do they survive and flourish? So why should naked apes be any different?

So, if one thinks one is unfairly disadvantaged (or advantaged), assume you're not getting the whole picture!

Winston said...

Thanks for having the balls to say this. I completely agree with you. Feminism is one of the big problems that Western civilizations is facing right now. I have a complicated relationship with feminism because it is one of the most demoralizing social forces prevailing in terms of male productiveness and success, but there are also feminists that accomplish things and contribute meaningfully and so it makes me also feel guilty when I criticize feminism for all of the valid reasons there are to criticize it. To add to that, we're also living in the post-9/11 world, which means that if you're someone that is critical of "women's lib", you're seen as someone who takes sides with the extremist wing of Islam and I think it's because of Islamic anti-woman extremism in certain parts of the world that gives feminists the type of credibility that they enjoy right now. The Muslims go to far in chaining women up and suppressing them, and the West lets women do whatever the hell they want even enjoy more privileges than men. It's hard to both despise a movement and also feel some what indebted to it and grateful for some of it.

Many years ago I took a 360 question test to find out what my most destructive trait was. It turned out the reason I was so unhappy was that I was extremely self-defeating. The counselor said that this was the most common problem for self-described feminists. He said that women who are attracted to feminism actually hate themselves and desperately want to blame men for all their problems. Of course I thought he was an idiot. Because I was an idiot. Woman are power-seeking control freaks and have been since Adam and Eve.

Here's the ugly truth...women need men to be men and they will never respect any man who enables their quest for dominance and control. Adam was afraid of Eve. Just sayin...

Good post. I posit that it is not only nurture (feminism) but also nature (general female decisions towards immorality/evil) that has things as they are.

fiqhonomics said...

I don't think it's feminism (the right of women to seek self-fulfillment to the same extent as males) that's the problem, but the sexual revolution, i.e. the freedom to have irresponsible sex which caused the divorce and single-mom pandemic, made men lazy (sluttery decreases economic initiative) and entitled (incel culture). Your writings certainly echo my recent (surprising) experiences with a male housemate (son of a single mother). I found him to have no inkling of the need to excel in order to attract the attention of a female, and at the same time, resenting women, because of their indifference/disdain. I wonder if the sons of single mothers are also not simultaneously doted upon, and also the target of their mothers' complicated feelings towards men. Jeez, Cappy. I'm sorry inter-gender relationships are such a shit show in the US.
