I was going to do a blogpost about this myself, but PariahPottyMouth said it so well. Click on the title link below for the full article:

13 Sexist Things About HeforShe; Everything Sexist About Emma Watson’s UN Speech

UN Women's "HeForShe" VIP After Party

1. The name of the campaign, HeforShe.

2. Feminism insults men for years and then asks for their help.

3. She WANTS to USE men and boys for feminism.

4. OK with man-hating, not OK with people saying feminism is about man hating

5. Using personal stories just shows more gender bias.

6. No empathy or understanding on how feminism hurts others

7. Men’s Right’s are not human rights

8. She is an elitist, not an oppressed woman.

9. Granting men a “formal invitation” to serve the feminist party

10. Men are oppressed because women are not granted their human rights

11. Feminists define masculinity and perpetuate stereotypes

12. The LGBT Community does not exist.

13. Men and boys are not human.

Not a blog this time for my favorite, but a video. Manospherians are quite familiar with The Sandman. I know this was released at the end of August, but I still wanted to feature it now, because it’s so powerful. Also because #WomenAgainstFeminism is still a thing. This video really speaks for itself: Also check it out on Sandman’s MGTOW site here. I really vibe with this sentiment, as I personally tend to have a long memory. I really hope that men never forget that women’s hypergamous strategy has been laid bare by Feminism, and you will never get her best.

So why should you give her yours?

flushingSo, Manosphere articles, posts, blogs, and books can pretty much be summed up as always falling into one of three categories:

1) Female Hypergamy

2) The Male Need for Game

3) Watching 1) and 2) play out in real life

But I’m here to restate this question: How does it all end? Or, more accurately, what is the next Big Thing in male/female relations?

We’ve examined, over and over again, the actual and accurate basics of the Female Imperative. We’ve debunked, time and time again, the false claims of Feminism. More and more men are awakening to the Blue Bill Betaness inside of them, and realizing what their prospects are without nutting/Gaming up. More men are adopting some level of MGTOW, after seeing the awful deal that is Marriage 2.0. That’s not what I’m talking about right now. What I’m talking about now is, what will the next huge cultural shift be? What’s the future that results from all of this going to look like?

Will it be filled with frustrated Betas that finally decide to become MGTOW? Will there simply be less males in the world in NGWOTgeneral? Will the U.S. regress to an earlier time, like the return of Finishing School for women and male chivalry, or go extreme hardcore women-are-property like many countries in the Middle East? Or will enough men with enough power realize that shipping in beautiful wife trained women from other countries will shine an even greater light on how worthless the 21st century American female is? Or will we just go straight on Logan’s Run and say that nobody gets to live past the age of 30?

There aren’t really any stats that I’m aware of that track the number of married Beta men, as being a “Beta Man” isn’t an easily measurable demographic. So let’s look at this article from last year to examine the number of weddings in total:

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/06/17/marriage-trends-demographics/2424641/

From 2007 to 2009, the number of marriages each year fell from 2.197 million to 2.080 million. The report estimates that more than 175,000 weddings have been postponed or foregone since the recession began.

Sociologist and demographer Wendy Manning, co-director of the National Center for Family & Marriage Research at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio, says the projected wedding increases “might be overly optimistic.”

“They seem to think the number of weddings is going to increase. That’s possible,” she says. But “not all those marriages are going to be among those young people entering into their first marriages. The report is focusing on the Echo Baby Boomers entering into their marrying years, which is true, but my issue is that one-third of marriages are remarriages, and the remarriages are not among the young people.”

A report based on 2010 data issued by her center last year found that 31% of all people who married that year were remarrying.

The new forecast predicts the marriage rate to remain at the record low of 6.8 marriages per 1,000 population for 2013 (where it’s been since 2009) and notes that the rate was 7.3 in 2007, just before the downturn. In addition, the report predicts that when these couples take their first vows, they’ll probably be older than brides and grooms in the past. By 2015, the company predicts, the average age at first marriage will rise to 29.2 for men and 27.1 for women, up from 28.2 for men and 26.1 for women in 2010.

 

6.8 marriages per 1,000 people, with most of the remarriages being among the young, with everybody pushing 30 before getting married, with same sex marriages stats not even being fully tabulated yet. And now, the number of divorces:

http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/marriage-divorce.htm

Marriage and Divorce

Data are for the U.S.

  • Number of marriages: 2,118,000
  • Marriage rate: 6.8 per 1,000 total population
  • Divorce rate: 3.6 per 1,000 population (44 reporting States and D.C.

That’s an astonishingly low number of people even braving the waters of marriage, with over half of them wanting out, with women initiating said outness 60-70% of the time:

http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/homo-consumericus/201311/do-men-or-women-file-divorce-more-often

http://www.divorce-lawyer-source.com/faq/emotional/who-initiates-divorce-men-or-women.html

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/relationships/10357829/Why-do-women-initiate-divorce-more-than-men.html

So if we’re assuming a 5% Alpha Rate, that means that 2 million or so of these marriages(when factoring in Gammas and Deltas) are Beta Marriages. Everyone keeps claiming that the current climate is unsustainable, for genetic, social, and economic reasons(and yes I know those stats are not broken down by age or ethnic group). They say that neither Beta Men nor the State are going to be willing to keep furnishing women with all the rights, all the property, all the education, full control over the children, and all of the income forever, 042014_marrying_807with men paying the bill either through taxes, alimony, or child support.

So what’s the next step?

Every state rushing to legalize prostitution? Doubtful, but if you want to read an experienced perspective on that, check out The Honest Courtesan.

My personal feeling is that Polygamy will begin to surge in the U.S.; with women experiencing less and less available men, they will be more honest about their desire to share an Alpha Male than be stuck somewhere with a schlubbing Beta.

There also might be room for Marriage 3.0….something that on the surface seems more equitable for men, but again, it will be aimed primarily at the Beta Men still wanting to marry.

So what do Manospherians think? What will the next big Cultural Shift be?next-big-thing-ahead

 

katarina-kroslakova-49687Here is the original article:

Quit Hitting on Me and Help Me Out

In it, we see Katarina Kroslakova expressing her frustrations at the various male “peacocks” she finds on the 6am flights that are a regular part of her work schedule. And how their constant attempts at picking her up are both simultaneously esteem boosting and pathetic. She then goes on to describe her fascination with the apparent obituary reading over Chivalry:

Has anyone ever helped pop my bag up into the overhead compartment? Nope. Have I seen any other woman helped? Nope. This week, an engineer in his 50s just stood there in the aisle, his hands clasped, as I played Olympic weight-lifting with my suitcase right in front of him. Just stood there, looking intently at the sticky carpet. Probably afraid to chip a nail or something. Has the women’s liberation movement really scared the bejesus out of men this much? When did it become chivalrous to steadfastly look away and not bother to help? If a 6am flight is anything to go by, you’d think the concept of a gentleman was well and truly dead. I promise you, I won’t get angry or defensive or give you attitude, I’ll in fact be super-grateful and flash you an extra-big smile despite the lack of sleep. Which brings me to the final dismount. Even before the seatbelt sign goes off, the jackets get put on, the suitcases get territorially placed in the aisle, and the competitive rush to get off that plane begins. Of course, I’m left to struggle with my own bag. It’s not that I expect help, it’s just the harshness of it all I find a bit surprising. Unless your carry-on luggage contains an esky full of kidneys, I actually don’t think your meeting is more important than mine. And yet, I’m fascinated by this morning microcosm of high society.

My favorite Manosphere responses have been from Dalrock:

chivalry_is_dead_by_joeynwhite-d5wikwx“Articles like the above are interesting not because the author is so stuck in her own head she can’t see how absurd her childish demands are, but that her editor didn’t see the problem either.  It is also worth noting that Ms. Kroslakova’s problem isn’t that men are afraid of being useful to her, or even that this is a movement designed to teach women a lesson.  Her problem is that this is the entirely foreseeable cultural change feminists like her have been championing.”

And from Vox:

“Chivalry is dead, ladies. You killed it. It’s dead. You can vote and you can work and you can divorce now,  so shut the hell up and stop expecting men to protect you, provide for you, or even bothering to lift a finger for you. You wanted “equality” and you got it. As Instapundit correctly noted: ‘Chivalry was a system, which imposed behavioral obligations on women as well as on men. Women were happy to cast their obligations off, yet seem perennially surprised that men haven’t stayed exactly the same.‘ Ray Rice is the perfect image of equality in action. Based on the police summons of both the Baltimore running back and his fiance, his fiance hit him and Rice promptly hit her right back.

Is that what feminists wanted? Because that’s what they got, and they damn well deserve it too. Ideologies have consequences.

…be sure to read the comments as well. I co-sign almost every comment on Vox’s post.

My take on it is this:

make_me_sandwich2As I explained in more detail here, men will always respond to lines, rules, boundaries, honor, codes, and fair competition, and we desire more than anything else to understand the rules of the game that we’re playing. Well, here’s the answer. This is the situation that modern Feminism has created:

I am female. Whether girl or woman, chronologically or psychologically immature and undeveloped, or well into maturity, broken, damaged or whole, I deserve respect because of what I am….not because of what I do or do not do. I am your equal in every way, except when it comes to taking responsibility for my life, as I reserve the right of Universal Victim Status, to be invoked at any time. I have the right to use every natural, legal, and social advantage that I have to make my life better, especially at your expense, but males cannot use any of theirs, because anything that benefits a man is by definition oppression against women and misogynistic. I have identified Patriarchy as the source of all ills in my life, and since men are the problem, my solution is….to become more like them. I therefore will eschew all natural and social expectations of femininity and embrace aggressiveness, poor manners, questionable hygiene, butch haircuts, course language, and the freedom to have as many sexual encounters as I like, because men get to do it. And any opinion of my sexual choices, and any consequences thereof, shall be shouted down with a rousing chorus of the Female National Anthem, Don’t Judge Me. Finally all available resources belong to me by birthright, therefore the Federal, State, and Local Governments shall create extensive programs to help me succeed in life, to be funded primarily by male tax dollars, regardless of my own choices in the matter, and any man that accepts the legal status of husband relinquishes all rights to any resources in the marriage to me, in perpetuity, and yet I may always adopt the title of StrongIndependentWomanTM.

girlpower2Did you catch all that? Let me chart it out for you:

NEW

 GENDER

 REALITY

Women
Men
 
 TRAITS Advantage
Physical Strength Weaker, can use Stronger, cannot use Women
Verbal Strength Stronger, can use Weaker, cannot use Women
Sexual Strength Stronger, can use Weaker, cannot use Women
Economic Strength Equal to greater, can use Equal to weaker, cannot use Women
Social Strength Stronger, can use Weaker, can use only if Game Women
Legal Strength Stronger, can use Almost nonexistent, cannot use Women
Parent Strength Stronger, can use Almost nonexistent, cannot use Women
Marital/Divorce Stronger, can use Almost nonexistent, cannot use Women

Can you see it? This is the new Feministic definition of “equality.” And yet you’ve got a pretentious Wall Creeping privileged Femiphyte like Katarina Kroslakova, complaining about CHIVALRY, while clearly taking full advantage of this new Gender Reality system by retaining her “maiden” name(a long outdated term) 794061-michael-smith-and-katarina-kroslakovawhile enjoying her husband’s resources, and yet still complaining about married life:

Needless to say, I didn’t change my name to Katarina, um, Smith. Then, less than three months after our wedding, Michael went away to film a documentary. In Mogadishu, Somalia. With no communication options. The day he flew out, my car got flooded and written off. Problems piled up. 

I doubt there is a chapter called “Dealing with Disruptive Events” in the Marriage for Dummies book. There should be, as that cozy little bubble bursts pretty quickly. Even within the first year of marriage, the age-old saying of what first attracts you later drives you mad will ring true. Six years ago I loved Michael’s vocabulary. As a journalist, I found that very attractive. He’s “Mr Big” in my phone, as a Sex and the City reference to his command of the English language. Now, if he gratuitously shoves an avoidable big word into a conversation, I simply raise a single eyebrow. Six years ago I loved our constantly exciting life of launches, lunches, dinners, dates, functions, flights. Now, I crave cheap Thai takeaway and a Bridesmaids DVD. But what marriage does is transform your relationship from that intense, mad whirlwind into your lovely, unique version of what romance and partnership is. 

This year for Valentine’s Day, we ate takeaway fish and chips in the park across the street. Just him and me, perched on the pavement, greasy paper on our good clothes, sticky slippery fingers holding on to plastic cups of white wine. For this week’s first – paper – anniversary, I was given Tom Ford stilettos and Michael a bottle of Grange. Wrapped up in paper, sure. I’m only a baby in marriage years, but I’ve learnt a lot. When I read about Hollywood stars describing how hard they worked on their marriage, I thought, “You’re so full of it”. Now I find myself on the same bandwagon. So, do I have any marriage secrets? Don’t play guessing games – help the dude out and say what you want. Subtlety is overrated. Don’t pick his clothes up off the floor. He will run out of clean underwear eventually and find the laundry basket. Get a regular cleaner. It’s the best $50 you’ll ever spend. Buy a cookbook with dishes that are full of flavour and simple to prepare. Nigella Lawson has made me seem like a culinary genius. Say thank you a lot, and say you’re proud of each other’s achievements. Pick up each other from the airport. Get a strong support network. A quick whinge to your mum or girlfriend can be most soothing: “I know, men are such total bastards!” Do I have any advice for men? Pick up your crap off the floor, buy flowers and tell your missus she looks beautiful every single day.

Chivalry is not only deservedly dead, but the day is coming when enough men will finally see that a reckoning is long overdue.

Financial StruggleThis article was written last month, but I just discovered it through Red Pill Reddit. It is pure gold:

http://www.elle.com/life-love/sex-relationships/why-every-woman-should-get-a-prenup

Favorite paragraphs:

But 18 years later, when I divorced my husband, I had a successful writing career and some money in the bank. He got to take half of it. But it isn’t even the fact that I had to give him half that I find so egregious. It’s the alimony he demanded I pay him on top of it that makes me very, very angry—like scream-really-loud, get-drunk, and eat-gratuitous-carbohydrates angry. On the first day of every month, I have to write him a mother^#%*ing check for six thousand dollars. I’ve been doing this for two and a half years. I’ve got five more left.

How did this happen? Because California divorce laws are antiquated and ridiculous and favor the less successful spouse. You’re probably thinking that he must have been raising our children, while I was acting as the breadwinner. Nope. We don’t have any. The state of California says that I’m supposed to keep him at the standard of living he got used to during our marriage, even though he’s no longer my husband. So despite the fact that he has a master’s degree and more marketable job skills than I do, I’ve had to give up my quality of life in order to maintain his. I can now no longer afford such luxuries as cable TV and haircuts.

I mean, it just doesn’t get any better than this. A perfect example of why the Feministic claim of wanting “equality” is complete and utter crap, because the second equality is actually applied, a woman is screaming bloody murder. Understand this: women do not want equality. Women want all the privileges of being a woman, and all the privileges of being a man, and none of the responsibilities of either.

Here’s the SubReddit I got the above link from:

http://www.reddit.com/r/TheRedPill/comments/1x9i5s/screenwriter_of_legally_blond_has_to_pay_alimony/

Women don’t understand that Marriage 2.0 is just legal prostitution until they’re on the losing end of the deal. But unlike prostitution, there is actually no expectation of services; a spouse doesn’t have to do anything inside of a marriage, and an ex-spouse doesn’t have to do anything but collect a check. Strangely acceptable to women as long as they’re the ones collecting the checks.0519_alimony
