If you ever wanted a glimpse into the thinking of today’s woman, a glimpse into what single men have to choose from, a glimpse into what turned PUAs and MRAs into what they are, I present to you Lauren Martin, and her article from the Feminist Scriptures:
Why Women Need To Start Asking Men Out…Because Men Have No Balls
There are just too many buckets of solipsistic gold in that article to miss, but I want to highlight a few of my favorite warpings of reality from this woman.
Ladies, it’s been said before, but I’ll say it again: They just don’t make ‘em like they used to.
There’s no door-holding, no hand-holding and definitely no free drinks. There’s no taking off hats or courting through invitations. There are no smooth moves, no jackets to dinner. There are no flowers, no tables by candlelight. But, most importantly, there are no dates.
After too many nights spent in bars and one too many phone numbers given out, you’ve probably realized the sad truth of the situation. You’re not going on any dates or being courted in any type of manner because, unfortunately, men these days are cowards.
Funny how she completely displays her lack of understanding of the male psyche. No true man is a coward. It does not, and obviously will not, occur to her that today’s woman is no prize. There’s nothing there to be won. Men aren’t afraid to pursue….it’s that the end goal simply isn’t worth any pursuit. Not beyond a pump and dump. She continues on in her solipsistic brilliance to prove why.
Well — to be fair here — not all men, but a lot of them.
We’re dealing with a new breed of men here and it’s not the kind we grew up dreaming about. It’s the want-what-I-want-but-don’t-know-how-to-get-it type; it’s the sweet and cuddly mama’s boys who grow up terrified of making the first move; it’s the guys who have so much to say but don’t know how to say it.
Not really, no. It’s the men who grew up under Title IX, men who’ve watched other men get Divorced Raped over and over again, men watching the False Rape Accusation circus, feeling the ball crushing truths of being forced to take the Red Pill, the Death of the Nice Guy, men observing the brain crunching illogical fallacy named ‘The Slutwalk‘ and men who have been cruelly exposed to the true nature of women. These men do indeed know how to say what they mean….and what they mean is, “no thanks.”
Now, the unfortunate paradox for a woman is that she must be the chased and the chaser. She must be the target and the shooter. She must play coy and simultaneously pursue him.
Anyone notice the problem here? Yet again, women are left to do all the work. We’re left playing both sides of the game because they’ve simply forgotten how to play.
It stems from a number of factors, but most prominently from the fact that men don’t know what the hell they want from us. They want the virgin and the whore. The want the slut and the good girl. They want the girl who’s hard to get, but they don’t know how to get her.
Because they don’t know what they want, they end up chasing nothing. It’s the dilemma of the overcrowded buffet. There are too many options so they choose an empty plate… or something they don’t even like to begin with.
This leaves women making all the moves. We must tell them what they want if we’re to get anywhere close to the goals we had for ourselves. But it will never be as we fully imagined because, in our dreams, men weren’t timid or scared little boys; in our dreams, men are the ones with the balls to ask us out.
Oh, poor women. They have to be the burden bearers, the risk takers, the decisions makers, the Lions and the Lambs, because us silly men are just scared little boys. Except we aren’t. To quote Judgy Bitch:
Of the 2977 people killed on September 11th, 2001, 414 were NYC emergency personnel who responded to the attack. 341 firefighters, 60 police officers, 8 EMTs and 3 court officers.
Two of those responders were women. The other 412 were men.

The unflappable Ms. Martin then goes on to tell us exactly what is to blame for the current sorry state of men.
They’re scared of you
They’ll never admit it, but you scare the hell out of them. After years of social conditioning, we’ve been duped into thinking that men are the strong ones; that they are the leaders, the protectors and the fighters; that they are the ones that see what they want and go after it.
Well, TV lied to you. Men aren’t these masculine displays of strength and perseverance.
Men are shy, timid and scared sh*tless of any woman with half a brain.
That’s pretty much what it takes to believe that, half a brain. Men have more fear? Incorrect. Women have less value. But she continues.
Why are men like this? Well, for years they’ve been raised by their mamas, the women who told them they were the best thing God created on this earth. For years, they’ve been given everything on a silver platter — up until the end of college when they were picking up women who just threw up their jungle juice.
Can’t you just smell the cauldron of irony? This coming from a culture that has spent countless ergs of energy championing and supporting single motherhood in spite of the fact that there is overwhelming evidence that children of single mothers do worse in life. But there’s more.
They think there’s always someone better
In the society in which we live today, with Gigi Hadid and Miranda Kerr’s Instagrams readily accessible, women have got a lot to compete with. Fortunately, we’re competing with women these men will never have a shot with. Unfortunately, these men don’t seem to know this.
This is just pure textbook projection. Checkout Exhibit A.
They never grew up
In a sad, but not all that surprising, report by Nickelodeon UK, men are 11 years behind women in maturity. While women reach maturation by 32, men aren’t fully matured until 43. While this study garnered much attention, women everywhere were less than surprised. Didn’t we already know this?
Men never grow up, hmmm? I’ll just let these gifs right here deal with that. And her conclusion is that the current low rates of marriage are again, the sole fault of males:
To add insult to the few dates you have yet to be asked on, men are also getting married less than ever before. According to a study by Pew Research Center, only 26 percent of Generation-Y is married.
Compared to the 48 percent of our parents at this age, there’s no denying that men just don’t have their sh*t together.
Right, right, because it’s clearly men that are delaying marriage these days. Oh wait.
But the pièce de résistance of this whole piece? The fact that Ms. Martin has failed at everything she’s touched:
