Unfold How?


Dalrock recently wrote, “Still, the problems with the insane family courts and our social contempt for husbands and fathers are all too real, and it is clear that marriage delaying women are starting to become concerned.  This is a real problem for proponents of the status quo, because as women become more concerned the problems which have been swept under the rug for decades will now be discussed in the open.”  How will bringing this knowledge into the open unfold?  That is the question.

Through the four years that I have been monitoring the manosphere, I have noticed more and more of its ideas trickling out into the world.  The MSM has tried to put their finger in the dyke, and has been mostly successful so far.  But eventually explanations for men slacking off and/or not marrying (two different problems) will need explanations.

There are several approaches that the media could take.  They could deny, obfuscate, fix the blame where it does not belong, or maybe even take a page from Goebbels (go big or go home).  It is even possible that the media response would be in the ordered listed.  But the real question is what will happen when a critical mass is reached; when enough people take the manosphere ideas seriously to have a large effect?  For that time will eventually come, as manosphere speaks truth, which is difficult to deny.

Will there be reforms (probably half-hearted ones)?  Will the country sink into chaos?  Will there be a new social contract?  And if there is, will men believe that it won’t be changed in the future?  Please jump in with your ideas.

    Being able to see the future is not a talent handed to just anybody. Very few have it. My take on it varies from day to day.
    Here’s what I am seeing today: feminists are going “badking mad”. Eventually, they will lose credibility and a lot of women are going to be angry about being led down their path.
    At least, they’ll be open to new ideas.
    Then, we can start fixing the damage.

    Where does this leave the mainstream media? Where they need to be, no debts to feminism.

    I now doubt that women are very worried about MGTOWs withdrawing. They want to avoid MGTOW anyway because MGTOW are all “losers”. Many women believe men are no longer necessary, and have said so publicly. They can afford to be as arrogant as they like, because the State has replaced the husband and father.

    Men will continue to be unnecessary to women as long as the Great Alpha (the state) can afford to support solo mums. However, the herbivores of Japan and the “single and not looking for a woman” men of the West do not have to earn as much to get by on their own. They will be less ambitious, and earn only enough to keep themselves happy. This will be a fraction of what they needed when they were supporting a family. Why pay for life insurance, for example? Why build their estate when they have no dependents?

    Men will cease to be the net contributors that they were before. Many men will themselves become a burden on the State. Currently men pay 70% of the taxes. When women are themselves paying 50% of the taxes they might start to resent carrying the burden of the dependent solo mums.

    Far more than the immediate absence of large numbers of men in the marriage market, it is THIS which I think might hurt women en masse more. It would force an issue between the totally dependent beneficiary single mothers and other women.

    I said I now doubt that women are very worried. The operative word is “very”. There comes a point at which the shortage of men is so acute that it does start to affect the behavior of women.

    Here’s the vital statistic: in NZ the ratio of males living alone to females living alone is 75:100
    I’ll give the full references and numbers some time in the future in a post on the subject.

    See if you can find the ratio in your own countries. In NZ 75:100 is the level at which a change in the behavior of a sizable percentage of women toward men starts to become apparent in the ways that I’ve mentioned in my PPP posts.

    I wouldn’t know where to begin to look for those numbers. I am going to presume that by “living alone” means not cohabiting. There could be confusion over having a roomate.
    I am going to take your numbers to mean that while the single male to female ratio in NZ is 89/100, when you factor in cohabitation, living together, the ratio worsens to 75/100.
    This is a big problem and I wouldn’t trust government to find a solution.

    Fuzzie,

    I think this discrepancy is due, at least in part, to simple demographics.
    According to the December 2013 U.S. Census reports, there were 161 million women vs 156 million men. Also, remember that when one lives in an apartment in a senior living community it’s counted as being a single person “household”. The ratio of women to men at age 80 and older is 2:1.

    It’s not that men aren’t necessarily dropping out as much here, but that the numbers may just be that skewed because of mere population. Could definitely be more/other reasons but that’s what immediately came to mind.

    Cill, what are your population ratios?

    Why Europe Lets People Drown

    That Europe let almost 1000 people die in the Mediterranean in one night shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone, at least not to those who are still occasionally awake. The Club Med migrant crisis has been going on for a long time, and the EU’s only reaction to it has been to slash its budget and operations in the area, not to expand them. So when the New York Times opens with “European leaders were confronted on Monday with a humanitarian crisis in the Mediterranean..”, they’re a mile and a half less than honest. Brussels has known what was going on for years, and decided to do less than nothing.

    The right-thinking leftoids are dying to just open the doors, but they can’t because many of them know that it’d be electoral suicide. They’ll do anything and everything to stop immigration being raised as an issue in the UK right now.

    re: “it is clear that marriage delaying women are starting to become concerned.”

    I’m not convinced that any significant percentage of women are concerned the way they should be. Even if a woman starts to become concerned about her vanishing options, she doesn’t exert effort herself and merely complains “where did all the good men go?” as if, AS IF, she had considered them good men a few years earlier.

    One of my big concerns about going off of womenz feelz is that (too many) women both over-value their own feelings AND misremember those feelings! I guess I’ll chalk it up to some kind of biological lack of self-awareness, making currently projected feelz the standard by which even memories are presented to her own brainz, rather than what it seems to be: voluntary misreprentation for the purpose of manipulation.

    Tarn, “Cill, what are your population ratios?”
    I set them out in some detail in Oct 2014 (back in the days when Spawnyspace was brand spanking new):
    https://spawnyspace.wordpress.com/2014/10/22/links-related-to-the-decline-of-marriage/

    World as at 2010: http://www.geohive.com/earth/pop_gender.aspx
    The world has approx 60 million more males than females.
    The Male Surplus in China and India combined is approx 90 million, which indicates that the rest of the world has approximately 30 million more females than males.

    NZ:
    Male to Female all ages: 95:100
    Male to Female 25 to 49: 91:100
    Fuzzy has said it’s 89:100 He’s referring to the crucial 18 to 49 YO bracket. Other factors (i.e. other than bare census stats) show that he’s correct, for example on an average day there are more males than females temporarily out of NZ (see my last paragraph below), and more female than male tourists in NZ, and more female than male temporary workers (these do have an impact, and compete successfully for NZ men).

    “The June 2011 population estimates produced by Statistics New Zealand suggest there are around 50,000 more female than male residents aged 25-49 with the greatest imbalance in the prime relationship forming and childrearing age group of 30-44.” (http://callister.co.nz/nz-man-drought.pdf)

    At http://www.superu.govt.nz/sites/default/files/callister-seminar-270813.pdf :
    Have a look at the graphs:
    “Sex ratios for those aged 25-34”
    “Ratio of men to 100 women aged 25-34”

    There’s another factor (and there are people who’d want to kick my ass for saying this) : the entire Kiwi population is more masculine than the world average. Consequently the Kiwi male is more attractive than is his female counterpart. A Kiwi woman looking for a man has to contend with the foreign competition.

    re: looking more masculine

    I fully understand some women can’t help their baseline masculinity, but what completely mystifies me is why many women butch up their their appearance.

  73. I don’t think I could walk a mile in heels, myself! I bet a women’s studies teacher dreamed that one up!

    But then I have never really had a “good” pair of heels so maybe I, like Tarn, thought them masochistic. I mostly wear flats. Or muck boots! (The other day much boots, shorts, and a tank top – sexxxxxy! Lol.)

    What would happen if a number of the ROTC men reported themselves as unfit for duy or injured and claimed that it was because they complied with orders?

    My Dad only told war stories that were fit for mixed company. One of them was how tetanus vaccine was left unrefrigerated and gotr real strong. Rather than give the soldiers shots in the arm, so they would be unable to shoot, they got their shots in the leg and couldn’t walk.
    This happened in the Pacific during WWII.

    In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is…in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.

    Which mile to walk definitely seems a lot more important to me than which shoes. But there are a number of other impertinent questions that arise.
    1. Even supposing one does walk a mile in someone else’s shoes, doesn’t that mean that the other person is deprived of their own shoes during that time?
    2. What are the odds that a random person’s shoes fit another random person’s feet? To the nearest half-size (about half a cm near the middle), the answer from eyeballing the bimodal distribution of the mixed population seems to less than 7%.
    3. Is it easier to catch foot diseases from someone else or to reinfect ones’ own self? I’m leaning towards some kind of immunity theory, whereby somebody else’s slightly cleaner shoes are slightly more infectious to you than your own slightly dirtier shoes.

    I’m really late to this one. Great post and good questions, Farm Boy.

    1. I’m with Cill, jf and others regarding women’s attitude toward all this. Women aren’t really all that concerned. They can still marry pretty much when they want. They can still get good jobs. More women than men in college now. The ratio is 60% women to 40% men. In the US, diversity is all the rage, you know — professional women do very, very well here. Women can earn their own money and don’t need men to provide until they want children, and even then they don’t really need men other than to donate the sperm. And we all know how these ladies would like to receive their sperm donations.

    2. When women can earn their own money and don’t need men as providers, women’s sexual choices tend toward the “top” of the food chain. IOW, when a woman doesn’t have to focus on what she needs, she can set her sights on what she wants. And women can select men now for fun, excitement and tingles when they don’t need men for provisioning, protection and partnering.

    3. There are some who say that it can’t go on forever. True; but forever is a long, long time. It’s going to continue just like this for at least another 50-60 years. I will be long dead by the time this shakes out. It’s also going to get worse — a LOT worse. And I do mean much, much worse, all around.

    4. It’s going to be full on matriarchy. Women will select men for tingles. The chasm between sexual haves and have nots among men will widen. The top 20% will have an absolute bonanza. The rest of society’s men will get absolutely nothing. They won’t even be in the market. You’re looking at 4 out of 5 men who will be herbivores, earning just enough to share apartments with a few other men, and to buy their food, weed, beer, internet connections, and video games. They’ll sate their sexual desires with internet porn and maybe the occasional “get lucky”, maybe even a hooker once in a while. “Yes Means Yes” will by then be the law of the land — many men will be doing time for “rape” and “sexual assault” because they tried to kiss a girl or hold her hand. There will be more prostitution, it will probably be legal in a few states by then, and it will be somewhat cheaper.

    Many men will be on welfare or government assistance – food stamps, medical cards, “Section 8” housing. There will be ghettoes and urban enclaves of ever-dwindling numbers, populated overwhelmingly with undereducated, unemployed and underemployed men, all living at subsistence levels. But, unlike most American ghettoes, it will have low crime rates and look more or less well-kempt, despite the working-class and lower-class socioeconomic status of most of its dwellers.

    5. Women will hold most of the good paying jobs. A few will be paying child support to their former boy toy ex-husbands who got custody of the kid(s). But for most, mom will work her full time job and hire nannies and day care. Women will care only about the fortunes of the top 20% of men — the remainder of men are considered disposable.

    I really think that young men in their teens and 20s should be prevailed on right now and learn the following, and fast:

    1. Most of you will not lose your virginity, if at all, until you are well into your 20s.

    2. Most of you are not good looking enough or attractive enough to attract a woman for a long term relationship. Even fewer of you will be attractive enough to sustain that attraction, if you’re lucky enough to actually get a woman interested in you for anything more than beta orbiter.

    3. Most of you will never marry. Most of you will never have any sort of meaningful intimate relationship with a woman in which she actually has sex with you on a regular basis and kinda sorta cares about you.

    4. Most of you will never be fathers of children.

    5. Most of you should plan for and get vasectomies as soon as possible.

    6. If “Yes Means Yes” becomes law, videotape every sexual encounter — even with your LTR. You will never, ever be able to trust her. You MUST be braced for the possibility that she could at any time claim you raped her. Even your LTR or wife could make that claim at any time.

    7. Most of you will never be able to earn enough by yourself to support a wife and child.

    Or, Liz, if their futures do include “marriage” and “fatherhood”, those concepts will look quite different from the way you and I understand them. It might not be where a man gets a job and gets with one woman who also has a job and the two of them agree to stay with each other for life. They have children, and the man, the woman and their children all live together in the same house and they raise and teach and train the children together.

    That’s your and my concept of marriage, parenthood and family.

    I don’t think marriage, parenthood and family will look like that in the future for most men.

    Traditional marriage and family (one man and one woman, legally married to each other, and living with their children all under the same roof) will be reserved only for the upper middle class and up. For the middle class, traditional marriage will be less common, and it will be rare to nonexistent for the lower middle class on down. Traditional marriage just won’t make economic sense for either men or women. They just won’t do it in the first place. If they do get married, well over half won’t make it.

    I fully expect divorce rates to increase as men continue to fail in the overall economy and women outpace them in earnings and overall SES.

    Unless a man is planning on making it to the upper middle class in the US, marriage will be very, very hard for him to get and sustain. Very, very difficult.

    Yes. It almost already is. Half of kids live with their single moms. Of the other half, MOST of the “heads of households”, making all not just some of the major life decidions, are the moms. I’d wager we’re at least 80% matriarchy already and have been for a couple generations.
