Recently this post was brought to my attention. Where might these women find these men the question is ask. But before we go there, let us consider the background to the situation. Much of this comes out in the comments on the site,
The basic problem of the male-female ratio of college undergraduates tending towards 40-60. What this has to mean is that one third of all graduating women are going to have to marry a man without a four year degree, if they marry a man at all.
Unless it is Science or Math, the over-educated woman has mostly been schooled to be upset at most all aspects of Life under the Patriarchy.
The women could start by realizing that higher levels of education have no correlation to higher levels of intelligence.
Being educated does not improve the SMV of a woman, in fact as has been alluded to it is more likely to make her the kind of entitled, demanding, and unfeminine “feminist’ type that is a turnoff to any self respecting masculine man.
Over-educated women: you have done this to yourself.
Let’s not lose track of the fact that we are really not discussing intelligence, here: What we are really discussing is educationally-conferred social status, which is not at all the same. While I know some really smart, really sharp folks with impressive educational attainments, the sad fact remains that there are also a lot of really stupid people that have those same pieces of paper.
Women have traditionally married up, that is they have married a man with more status, education, money etc. than herself. In the days of the Patriarchy, this happened a bit more naturally as women’s career and education prospects were more constrained. But, perhaps the social convention should change, and women not marry up. This could conceivably solve the problems, except for the fact that it really was not a social convention that caused women to marry up, it was hypergamy. Women really, really desire to marry up, social convention or not.
Education is used as a marker for status. Actually it is considered to be a very important marker. How will these women find guys that they can happily marry? The key word here is happily, as they could no doubt find a guy to marry; however deep down they will resent him for the fact that he forced her to marry down.
What is to be done?
