In the last post, we saw what modern women have with respect to choices. Now it is time to look at men. So without further ado,
I. Choose a non-virgin for marriage. Of course in the days of the Evil Patriarchy, virginity was not a guarantee, but these days it is pretty much given that a man can not find such a woman to marry. Thus men must choose to take on all of the baggage that this implies: possible alpha-widowhood, greater propensity to cheat, higher likelihood of divorce, etc. Furthermore, there is the impact of all of this on his future children.
II. Early marriage. A man’s hormones rage in their late teens and twenties. Marriage was a system sanctioned way to satiate it. Not any more (with a few exceptions).
III. Work hard to attract a good wife. This used to be an option open to men in their twenties. It is still kind of available to men in their thirties. Still the question is open about the “good” part with respect to a prospective wife. What often happens is that men in their twenties (or even teens) get discouraged, and at last partially give up trying to improve their lot (e.g assets, jobs, skills). This is partly where the “where are the good men” lament comes from.
IV. Pump ‘n Dump. Here is a somewhat new choice. This type of thing went on during the Evil Patriarchy, but not as much and not as openly. Of course, if you can pull this off, then maybe you feel that your situation is great. However, only a small percentage of men can do this, and for those that do, it will not be satisfactory in the long run.
V. MGTOW. Men Going Their Own Way. This is men typically not engaging with women all that much, making his own money, doing his own thing. During the times of the Evil Patriarchy, this was frowned upon. However, these days, so many men have effectively had this forced upon them that it has become mainstream (of course the media would never acknowledge this).
Please feel free to add your own additional choices / non-choices.
P.S. NAWALT of course applies
