The Red Pill Classroom — Apex Fallacy


Women like to compare their plight with what men have.  The apex fallacy is about them selectively comparing one of their attribute(s) with those those of top men.  Implied in the comparison is that the situation generalizes — which it invariably does not.

Since women are taught that they were/are victims, one needs to define how much of a victim they are.  Metrics are needed.  Where are they to be found?  One could use statistics.  They are often slanted to reflect women’s oppression (e.g. 77% of what men make).  But these are rather boring, and they don’t elicit the necessary outrage in individual women.  After all, “I’m outraged, therefore I am”.  I think that some old white dead Frenchman said something like that.  One cannot cheat women of their outrage rush, can we?

Anyway, what is the best way to generate outrage, and make it personal (which makes it better) at the same time?  The answer is to find a prominent man (or group of men) who have an attribute in abundance (e.g. power, money, sexual prowess, strength), and compare the individual woman’s situation with that of these men.  Naturally nothing more is said after the comparison is made.  For example, “Men can become rich athletic superstars, while I can’t”.  It is left at that.  The implication is that men have it so good in general, while women do not.  Of course, only a very small fraction of men attain this apex, most are living in the much less affluent and glamorous real world.

How do women get away with making these types of comparisons?  Partly it is because people are not taught to think very well.  Often they would rather not think very well, as thinking is work, and it is more fun to just experience life. Partly it is because nobody in the MSM will call anybody on it.  Partly it is because people seem to have a predisposition to take half (or quarter, or one-eighth) truths and extend to them full truth status.  We saw this earlier with the rationalization hamster.  And naturally enough this truth promotion approach is more effective if something is repeated often enough and with enough emotion (or outrage).

    Next, they’ll want their own personal business jets that are all over Davos, Switzerland.
    Consumption on that level is beyond good taste. Bill Clinton wearing a watch that costs over $60k that will tell time as well as a $10 drug store watch?

    One of the secrets to my Mom’s happiness was that she accepted and appreciated my Dad for what he was.

    She was contented. Are the women who tend to use the “apex fallacy”?

    I wonder if a giant meteor hit Davos right now would result in the world being a better place.

    I shouldn’t think that way, but I do.

    I shouldn’t believe in MGTOW as a viable option for men, but I do.

    The world forces much dark thinking upon us.

    Whoever has the unquestioning support of the MSM can fool enough of the people all of the time. The MSM is the fembots’ bitch. There’s the rub.

    I wouldn’t know about New Zealand but, we are making progress here. There are a handful and there will likely be more.

    Cill,
    I was referring to reporters. There is James taranto of The Wall Street Journal and one that Farm Boy keeps linking.Ashe ??? The media is not unanimously in favor of feminism.

    Taranto is great. He actually knows what hypergamy is. How many reporters can truthfully make that claim?

    How many deliberately don’t want to know.
