This is the third entry in a series that explains red-pill terms.
Women want resources and they want privileges. More so than men it would seem. Why might this be? Perhaps it is because they are effectively incapacitated when pregnant and maybe even more so after delivery. Without resources and/or privileges to make it through these periods, life is really difficult. But being physically weak and often incapacitated lends itself to using an indirect approach. Mainly a “cajole and nibble around the edges” approach. Keep pushing until there is push back. This is what women have done in modern times, with little push back.
Being weak individually also lends itself to the idea of banding together into groups for safety. This is the core of the feminine imperative. Women naturally band together when working on obtaining resources in the large (e.g. welfare, other subsidies). In the USA, this was mainly brought forth by the constitutional amendment allowing women to vote. One can see the results in the present day; the outright pandering to women by politicians (the War on Women).
Of course women in small groups will battle each other for resources and privileges also. One might ask if this negates the idea of the Feminine Imperative. It does not. The desire for resources and privileges is strong, and can manifest itself differently under different contexts. When working for societal based privileges, women put aside their differences, as fighting is counter productive.
As a closing challenge, I ask the question : “Can anyone come up with an instance where men as a whole, work to advance the general man cause?”
