She’s Gotta Have Tingles

From the last post,

It is often stated around these parts that one of the motivators of second wave Feminism was to provide easy (and often) access  for women (especially the lower SMP ones) to men who generate tingles.

So what exactly was happening here?  In the bad old days, men and women would often pair up young, with assortive mating based at least partially on appearance/sexiness.  A  factor for her also was his financial prospects.  So, in short, a woman with a low/moderate Sexual Market Value (SMV) might feel that she was forced to settle for an unsexy fella.

Of course, the key word is feel.  In reality, these matches of old were often matched in SMVs; with him being satisfied and her not.  Why would she not be satisfied?  There is hypergamy, which affects women and not men.  Hypergamy is a drive to mate with only what is perceived to be the best mates.  With this driving the show, her husband just isn’t good enough; he does not generate the tingles that she desires, that is indicative to her of the best of men.

This was a real first world problem in the late fifties and early sixties.  Nobody can deny it. One really can’t have hordes of women who never experienced tingles in their life.  The time had come; something need to be done.

The solution was rather easy; just relax the rules with respect to promiscuity.  So the stage was set for young women to get screwed by hawt men.  Tingles galore.  No longer are you allowed to criticize.  Sure, eventually these women might eventually feel compelled to marry a fella comparable in SMV, but at least they experienced tingles when they could.

So how did all of this work?  Hawt fellas feel no real issue when f’ing women lower in SMV than they are, as long as it isn’t too much of a difference.  Even women ones and twos can find men fives who will have them for short term sex.  So no woman need do without.

As we can see, the oppressive Patriarchy was turned on its head such that an important problem was solved.  Never again would women in their late teens and twenties have to go without tingles.  If only solving other problems were just as easy…

It is better to have tingled and lost, than to never have tingled at all.

    You forgot a few important things however…

    In the oppressive patriarchal days sometimes if a woman decided to screw a man outside of marriage there would be that thing call pregnancy which would happen. This was not good…how could her tingles produce a situation which was less than ideal and her child might not have a father? Tingles should have only provided orgasmic happiness all the time.

    So the solution was to take the pill (which messes up their hormones) and when that failed have abortion ready and available. Why should a kid stop their pursuit of tingles? However if she decided to keep the little bastard she couldn’t possibly be forced to experience the consequences of her actions so things like welfare, EBT, and government provided cash from taxpayers kept her afloat.

    But what about those women who made the mistake of marrying a man who committed the cardinal sin of not being a tingle producer? Adultery could be possible…but that might still be looked down upon. Divorce used to have this nasty little stipulation that there had to be a fault involved. Steady Eddy isn’t the fault producing type so they needed no fault divorce to be able to dump the husband in pursuit of tingles.

    They can still get vitamin D without tingles…and vice versa…but they’ll blame that less than ideal situation on the oppressive patriarchy.

    I would still like to know what caused the extreme hypergamy at the dawn of civilization eight thousand years ago. For every male who reproduced, over seventeen women reproduced.

    I have another thought about all this. In allowing women to chase tingles, hypergamy became unrestricted. One observer put it, eighty percent of women are chasing the top twenty percent of men. The bottom eighty percent of men are free to chase the bottom twenty percent of women. This will only benefit the top twenty percent of men. What will happen is that women will begin to experience involuntary celibacy in huge numbers and for decades. I get the feeling that is beginning to bubble to the surface of cultural awareness. Women aren’t used to this.

    And yet wholesome is not the word that comes to mind when one assesses the newest wrinkle in academia’s attempt to balance the scales: an all-out, unapologetic assault on ‘whiteness’ itself. Today’s college administrators increasingly frame diversity and inclusion as lessons that must be learned by whites alone—and they’re lessons that too often unfold as interventions that force whites to regard themselves less as full partners in diversity than an obstacle to be overcome so that other constituencies might thrive. (This flows from another favored academic trope, the concept of the zero-sum society, wherein white success necessarily comes at the expense of non-white failure.) Colleges require the injection of units—if not whole introductory courses—on diversity in major subject areas “from physics to forestry,” as the Atlantic put it, and syllabi confirm the prevailing view of whiteness as something of an anachronistic disease that, like cholera, has no place in modern life.

    A tale of two coasts: New York’s Hunter College promotes coursework for poli-sci majors in “the abolition of whiteness.” Stanford examines “abolishing whiteness as a cultural identity.” Elsewhere, to cite just a few examples, classes at Grinnell and UW-Madison confront “the problem of whiteness.” New Mexico’s St. John’s College takes on the “depravity” of whiteness. Moreover, academic theorists crusade to purge whiteness from STEM courses, because critical thinking and research are regarded as tools of “white hegemony.” Engineering students at Purdue must contend with the school’s indictment of “racist and colonialist projects in science,” while a UC-Irvine professor condemns even “technical prowess” as a white male construct. A Linfield college Gender Studies professor even condemns her peers for putting “stellar” colleagues in leadership roles, because stellar individuals, she notes, tend to be white and thus have benefited unfairly from “a logic of meritocracy that is built on this racist assumption that everyone has had the same access and opportunities.” UCLA pays students a stipend to act as professional social justice activists who will diagnose, expose, and combat “whiteness” and “the patriarchy” in all campus manifestations.

Worse, there have been sweeping claims that virtually all men need to atone for some degree of abusive conduct toward women. The notion that all bad or hurtful behavior in sexual interactions comes from males not only demonizes men but also strips women of their agency.

    At least they got this part right. Although if you can’t get married because women don’t want to (or at least until they are down to three eggs)…does that fit under the term ‘incel’?

    ‘With the name “incel,” they speak more truth than they know. Despite the common misunderstanding of the word, “celibate” does not refer to someone who abstains from sex. “Celibate” refers to someone who forgoes marriage — the part about not having sex is implied, at least in the Christian world, give or take an Alexander VI or two. “Chaste,” at the same time, doesn’t quite mean what people think it does: It refers principally to the abstention from extramarital sex, which in the case of the celibate means abstention from sex categorically. But chastity is part of marriage, too, describing a reverent attitude toward sex. In the Christian view (which is to say, in the view of Western civilization until ten minutes ago), the procreative act is the means by which men and women in union with one another participate in God’s creative work. “Chastity” means a lot more than mere abstinence. Chastity isn’t some kind of genital veganism.’

    I realize I am privileged: I am white and work in the film and television industry. I’ve had great opportunities, worked hard for them, and done the most I could do with them.

It is very, very hard to create a career as an actor without sexualizing oneself; I have been navigating this minefield for over thirty years with varying degrees of success. I’ve spoken out about the sexism in my industry before and faced backlash. I’ve been called “bitter” and told my behavior was “cringe worthy.” Whatever.

    There were things I just could not bring myself to do: the film by the (great) director that would require me to shoot a scene in a shirt but no panties, for example.

I didn’t go on auditions for films that I felt glorified sex work, that depicted women being sexually abused in a gratuitous way, or that required me to leave my sense of self on the doorstep.

    These stories, all of which have happened recently, are just a drop in the bucket. Liberals are perpetually offended by just about everything. Why? Because liberals have decided that being offended trumps logic, fact and every other argument that anyone can make. If it were up to liberals, we would not have free speech because too many people say things that contradict liberal ideas. So, they may not be able to put you in jail for believing that you can’t change genders or that it’s not smart to send gay men who may be sexually interested in teenagers out into the woods with them overnight as scout masters, but they can use a variety of different tactics to silence you. Outrage is one of those tactics because again, according to liberals, the second someone is outraged, the debate is over and they’ve won (Of course that only applies to liberals. If conservatives are offended by something, that doesn’t count.)

    Of course, liberals love to use whatever they’re outraged about today as an excuse for government action or to gin up their base, but at the most fundamental level, liberal outrage is all about shutting up everyone who doesn’t agree with liberals. That’s the ultimate form of censorship. When you’re so scared that you might offend a liberal that you censor yourself. When you don’t wear the prom dress you want to wear. When you don’t make the joke. You don’t say anything that might make a liberal angry because you don’t want to deal with formal charges or 5,000 outraged liberals on Twitter that feel justified in calling you the worst names you’ve ever heard of because their widdle feelings are hurt. You can give in to their bullying if you like, but down that road lies a new liberal vision of totalitarianism where the bad guys win not because they deserve to or because they have guns pointed at your head, but because people are too afraid to speak the truth. For your sake, for the sake of your kids and for the sake of your country, don’t let liberal outrage determine what you can and cannot say.

    This is the form of argument, and of comedy, that takes as its presumption that all good and decent people are already agreed on the issue in question. In fact, We Are All Already Decided presumes that the offense is not just in thinking the wrong thing you think but in not realizing that We Are All Already Decided that the thing you think is deeply ridiculous. And the embedded argument, such as it is, is not on the merits of whatever issue people are disagreeing about, but on the assumed social costs of being wrong about an issue on which We Are All Already Decided. Which is great, provided everybody you need to convince cares about being part of your little koffee klatsch. If not, well….

    All of this, frankly, is politically ruinous. I meet and interact with a lot of young lefties who are just stunning rhetorically weak; they feel all of their politics very intensely but can’t articulate them to anyone who doesn’t share the same vocabulary, the same set of cultural and social signifiers that are used to demonstrate you’re one of the “right sort of people.” These kids are often great, they’re smart and passionate, I agree with them on most things, but they have no ability at all to express themselves to those who are not already in their tribe. They say terms like “privilege” or “mansplain” or “tone policing” and expect the conversation to somehow just stop, that if you say the magic words, you have won that round and the world is supposed to roll over to what you want.

    Speaking of consent,

    At first, I thought she was reviewing couples and this would make her employers liable. No problem with that. She is a hired c*ckblocker.

    Did they hire her because she’s gone through the necessary uglification of being a feminist to the point it would turn men off?
