The Fall From Grace

Women of times past were seemingly taught how to be the “social glue” in groups (families included and especially so).  They would work to make sure that everybody was felt included in what what happening and they belonged.  I benefited much from this as a child, being an introvert and all.  In fact, to me, this seemed to be one of the best features of women.

But at University, I noticed that my age peer women had no interest in “group anything”.  That is, unless it lead to tingles (though I did not think in terms of tingles at the time).  These women might look appealing physically to me; but I was turned off by the fact that they seemingly would make poor wives and mothers.  Probably if these women had shown more grace I would have tried harder while in my 20’s.  I wonder if other men were/are like me on this.

This attribute (grace) is actually quite useful to women.  They should cultivate it.  Uniting groups, making them feel at ease with each other, etc, can benefit women by essentially bringing themselves under the protective umbrella (be it physical, financial, social, etc) of the group that they helped create.  And in the near future, many women may need this.

  1. I have seen this in my babysitter’s clan, a fairly closed world not influenced by feminism or modern ways. Here’s what it looks like:

    That reminds me. Were you able to find someone for your brother from your babysitter’s clan?

    Farm Boy,
    I think the concept of grace started fading with my mother’s generation. For it to work, the “graceful” one needs to be able to empathise with others.

  3. @ fuzzie no, my brother was not willing to forgo alcohol and modern living, making him unrecommendable by the babysitter, unfortunately.

    It is a shame. I got the sense that he admired your babysitter and wanted one like her for his very own.

    @ Farmboy:

    During my brief time here at this blog, to me it seems that Tarn does kinda just what you described in your post. She seems to empathetically think of others and the group as a whole. And she isn’t even a chick??

  12. Oh dear fuzzie re the twerking thing, I hope I don’t see my daughters dancing like that someday! :/


  13. @ fuzzie re my babysitter’s culture, I would agree there is a lot to it that works. There is an expectation of men in it that I am less able to describe except to say its also very traditional. My brother would not fit in with the men of her culture, nor did he display to her traits that he would be good marriage material, in the way her culture would define that, unfortunately. I am not sure how exactly to explain it…there’s an expectation of men and masculinity that is as foreign in our culture today as women of her nature are.

    He could’ve been at a hotel somewhere. Can you tell what locality he was at, Spawny? He’s not answering email at the moment. (who knows what old Choicy might be up to).


  18. Spawny Get says:

    Tarn is most clearly seen online as a genuinely nice, logical guy. Tarn wants to help men. If you read Tarn’s blog you’ll see that attitude being carried into real life.

    I think we have very similar views in most things. But what she writes here is read by those not paying attention through a filter of ‘bio-chick says’. When I write similar stuff it’s read as ‘wise old sage with BTMSGL says’.

    With Tarn one just needs to put away the misconceptions about the source being a ebul wimminz and just read what is written. That’s how INTJs work, there can be misspeaking and honest confusion, but any subsequent clarifications seldom change the intent of the original text. I swear that I’ve never seen so much straw manning going on as when Tarn is taken to task. It’s weird to see and I’m sure, exhausting to be on the receiving end of.

    The military did this (at least active duty)…it’s kind of gone by the wayside now, but for most of Mike’s time in the service I took a very active role “welcoming” and organizing baby showers/welcoming parties/cookie drives/meals for ill family members, those with new babies/ children’s parties/ children’s playgroups and so forth.

    I was the welcome person for the squadron several different times. When people arrived new, I’d bring a gift to the TLF (or home if they were already settled) and had a pamplet with the ‘best stuff in the area/recommended things/important numbers’ to give them.

    I very happy to see the changes in this blog. Tarn is MUCH MORE appreciated then
    in the past. (You don’t know what you have until you lose it.) Spwany is much more
    interactive with the posters.
    But most of you still occupy a higher intellectual plane then I do. Most of the things
    you discuss, I’m completely clueless about. I don’t know whether it’s a difference, in
    intellect, culture, experience, or phraseology.
    Spawny, (and others) are “decent” but I can’t get what you are talking about? INTJ?

    re: “I benefited much from this as a child”

    Women can be really good at mothering. I *think* it’s true that if women have an innate ability to be good at anything, then mothering, and only mothering, is it. This graceful uniting of which you speak appears to me to be identical with some motherly behaviors in groups – wipe some noses, bake some cookies, kiss some booboo.

    Small wonder then, that there is demonization of betas wanting to be pleased by women. “You’re being a crybaby!” “I’m not going to make YOU sammiches; I’m not your momma!”


  54. jf13 says:

    Although not all dads are betas, most are. Does any male really feel a huge difference between “I’m so glad she likes it” when feeding his woman a banana and “I’m so glad she likes it” when feeding his baby girl her (baby food) bananas?

    So why, I ask knowingly, therefore menacingly, but in a cute kinda fun way, like a tiger striped kitten, are women so very very very very loathe to admit that the nurturing feelings for their babies are the exact same nurturing feelings they get whenever they happen to feel like nurturing their men? I know why, but I want you to hear it from the women first.

    Most women suffer from the apex fallacy, and the basic proof is that they can’t see that they do. But they can see it in other women.

  58. I am trying to think of fun post topics. May I suggest a series of “things X say” and in the comments we can make up play dialog to illustrate. Like, things betas say, things alphas say, things feminists say, things entitled princesses say, things mtgtow say, things blue pill people say, etc? Just a suggestion. In a poke fun exaggerated hyperbole kind of way, not in a heavy downer or insultong way. I dunno. Maybe not. Just throwing it out there.

His three children are also all very attractive, but not very smart.
