Tuning Out

Deti wrote,

I suspect more and more men are just not hearing the complaints anymore. They’re just tuning everyone else out. Which, in my view, is why the screaming is getting louder and more shrill, the positions being staked out more ridiculous.

Has this been happening?  Is it all an illusion?  Based on my own anecdotal evidence, it is not an illusion.  It has just been happening over time in a slow enough manner such that many do not notice.  So, how about you people?  Is this what you see?

But then, why would this matter?  Women are strong and independent.  The Government helps many of them to be this way.  Do they need men any more, either collectively, or individually?  Apparently not.  But then again, a fella can make life so much easier, especially with kids.  Then there is the built-in desire to find a man who can protect and defend.  It is difficult to get around this.

So women want men, but they don’t want men.  Such a back-and-forth mentality just does not work well on a woman (can you figure out why?).  They become shrill, they become helpless, they become a discombobulated mess.  Men are not sure what to make of it; but many realize that there is risk and not so much reward.

Then there is the fact that modern women are just not what men are looking for.  For whatever reason, men like feminine women.  Men rather like helping feminine women.  Girls are specifically trained to not be feminine.   Men notice.

Men just aren’t respected much anymore.  Especially non-celebrities.  Being a good father is a nothing-burger.  Being a pillar of the community, or at least a respectable member of a community is also a big nothing.  So when seemingly crazy and confused women who want men, but don’t need them, try to shame them into doing this or that, for many men, it just doesn’t matter.

    It’s the “two sets of books” problem. (Rollo’s excellent formulation.) I straddle two worlds in many ways. I live in the sticks, I stay in a private club in NYC, and on and on. The feminist impulse is completely at odds with what makes women melt. What they want is Dad plus the hood with a cigarette in his mouth, on his Triumph. Cartoon stuff. So they work harder and harder to “have it all” and wind up with nothing, nada, zilch — and its downhill from there.

    But men don’t keep two sets of books. We’re accountable for who we are: imperfect. And we don’t spend any time on the subject. So I like living in the sticks. I think it’s funny that I have two trucks, two motorcycles, a plane with wooden wings and a Mom-Volvo. I like things with motors. I also have 4000 books at home, where my art is worth more than the house. I’ve met exactly one woman in my life who finds this amusing. It was she who told me to just tell the club to launder and keep my linens aside, and not even discuss it, and thought it was normal to go to “21” for hamburgers. Then she fucked my brains out. And I’m talking half the live-long day.

    Whenever one of my girlfriends visits I apologize but inform her that we’re going out to have drinks in public. Because humans appear to think in terms of stereotypes, and then stop thinking. Women are the worst wrt to typing. So I’m the weird guy who’s always alone (“Is he gay or something?”), I don’t line up with expectation. Especially with females. The women don’t deal with complexity or ambiguity. Last Saturday at midnight a woman was grinning and staring me down; she’s been a total bitch for two years and I’m her customer. When women talk about locking a man down, they’re talking about nailing his feet to the floor as Type A or Type B or Type Z.

    If you’re a woman keeping two sets of books (maintaining expectations for life and men wholly incompatible with each other) you’re perpetually enraged that the man you like isn’t both Keith Richards *and* Gregory Peck, depending on your mood or circumstance.

    I don’t think there are any young guys here. But if there were, I would advise them to run an experiment the next time one of their girlfriends tried to program their behavior. Just say, “Hey, I’m a separate human being here.” My experience is that women astonished by that statement. But normal socio-sexual behavior in 2019 means that the man is an object, and he better be Gregory Peck with mom and dad, and Keith Richards with the girls and in the sack. Basically, we’re dealing with an evolving female sex that has no idea what they’re doing or why.

  11. That article Ton linked is perfect. I made about half-way through, but it combines just right amount of navel-gazing solipsism, goofy-ass identity politics, and wallowing in completely imagined victimhood which is the reason so many men have “tuned out” to what women have to say about fucking anything.

    Oh, and if whiteness is a construct, so is everything else. This woman has to be around 50 or so according to some of her time references, yet she has grown and but not wise.

    Corina Zappia’s personal essays and reviews have appeared in Salon, The Los Angeles Review of Books, The Rumpus, The Awl, The Stranger, The Hairpin, Nerve, and The Village Voice, where she was a staff writer. She graduated with an MFA from the Bennington Writing Seminars and now lives in Seattle.

    Perfect example of “the female writer” trope.

    The thing is, I have a high sex drive, and I can’t fully satisfy myself on my own—though believe me, I try. The cliché is that this should be an easy problem to fix: Plenty of men want to have sex with a woman with no strings, right?…

    I also am not really into sex parties or the poly scene; for better or worse, I like the intimacy of one-on-one connections, even if all I want is sex right now.

    The Tenneses, who make their home on the Country Mill Farm with their six children, contend that their Catholic faith has been maligned by East Lansing officials who have sought to bar them from the city’s farmers market over their refusal to host same-sex ceremonies on their property.

    Main idea here is that in a matriarchal society, aggression, particularly by males, is overtly punished. But there is a new form of aggression that we see with people like AOC and Omar, who paradoxically “access aggression” and rage through claimed victimization.

    Omar’s voice, when she is on the soapbox and “accessing her aggression” actually rises an octave.

    From “The Victim’s Rage” (unpublished manuscript), Dr. David Gutmann, Professsor, Northwestern U. School of Medicine:

    From “The Victim’s Rage”:

    “The accredited victim gains access to his storehouse [much repressed] of rage. He may start out as a guilt-slinger who flaunts his wounds, but he ends up as a gunslinger, who quite happily inflicts wounds on others.

    “… The accredited victim is guaranteed quick access to aggressive energy, and without paying the price of ritual discipline, or a nagging conscience. [I think Dad was referring here to soldiers, police or others who face real violence and death in the service of their cause.] The state of victimhood is fast becoming the the fallback alternative, the iron rations of the self in a time of spiritual famine. The Victim ‘Communities’ generate loyalties stronger than patriotism; they are becoming the de facto nations of our time.”…Victimhood generates self-confirming prophecies; like most addictions, it is a very hard habit to break, and it is self-sustaining. It is, after all, hard to give up the ‘Victim’s High,’ the rush of justified, reviving rage that comes with the conviction of incontrovertible victimhood.
    That being the case, this plague will be with us for a long time….”

This house is a bit like the JSF program. This morning our furnace gave out.

    Next: On the subject of “victimhood” I’ve seen this trend for PTSD and “the military child” as well. It’s nice that folks want to help military children/military members with mental heath issues but eventually this stuff takes on a life of its own. At the last base they had a special counselor for children of military members where our boys were required to see at least once per month to talk about their “issues” with military life. The counselor found out that one boy (a very close friend of our sons) had a father who was deployed for the whole year. It was really a mistake to them this because he was then called into the office about once per week to talk about his personal difficulties…of which there really weren’t any. Our boys described this therapy like so: “So, you’re a military kid. That means you must be really messed up. In what ways has your life been ruined by this lifestyle?” (I’m sure they’re embellishing, but probably not by much)

  42. A MONTH AGO, as I was checking out of a hotel in Stuttgart bound for Geneva in a hot new Porsche 911, a man approached me in the lobby, like Elijah in “Moby-Dick,” warning me of danger ahead. “Are you driving the red car to Switzerland?” he asked in English. “You know, they just put somebody in jail for four years for speeding.”

    How fast was he going? Two-hundred ten, came the answer—not miles, but kilometers per hour. That’s 130 mph. I went weak in the knees as I flashed back on all the times I’ve exceeded 130 mph in Switzerland. Every time, practically. Four years!

    I drove to Geneva like I was leading my mother’s funeral, never exceeding 85 mph in a car with a top speed 100 mph faster, constantly surveilled by Switzerland’s robust speed camera network. Hey Nonny Nonny. This sucks.

    It’s over. The era of European grand touring—the pursuit and enjoyment of elite speed across the face of the continent in powerful cars, the classic driving vacation — is finito.



    My younger boy has a thing for super-cars. Always asking me how this or that one costs or how fast they are. There was a decent series on Amazon (I think) where they toured the Italian cities where some of the high-end cars are made and test drove a car at each factory.

    I spent more time than most norteamericano hombres in Germany and environs as the Cold War ended. Normal driving routine for me was to get up early (Europeans don’t get up early; that’s reason #269 why they can’t even launch a couple of destroyers every 20 years.) Then I would drive a rented Mercedes with the accelerator buried down the autobahn. So I’m cruising at 230 (kph), 135 or so in ‘Murrican, smoking and sneaking some coffee. (Germans, for some reason, don’t think you can drink coffee (or beer) and drive. That’s why it took forever to get a decent cupholder in a German car.)

    (Footnote: I got in trouble once in Germany because I dropped a glass juice bottle in the public recycling receptacle. It was Sunday. It’s illegal to make the noise of discarding a glass vessel on Sunday. I was at my god-daughter’s baptism and I got a ticket!)

    So, I was in Frankfurt and had a meeting in Basel so instead of flying. jumped in the car at 5 a.m. and go screaming down the autobahn. Woohoo! As I neared the Swiss border, fog was pretty thick and I was stuck for four hours. Stressful: this is pre-cellphones, I’m blowing the meet, no one knows where I am.There must have been 100 burned-out cars scattered like Matchbox toys. Insufficient coffee, I guess. Someone was asleep at the wheel.

    Postscript: Basel is a compact, spectacularly pleasant small city. When I stop pretending to be 27, I’ll be one of those limping old guys riding a cruise-barge up and down the Rhine.

    For a new paper in PNAS, a prominent team of researchers, including Katherine Milkman, Angela Duckworth, and Adam Grant of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, partnered with a large global organisation to measure the real-world impact of the researchers’ own anti-bias intervention, designed principally to “promote inclusive attitudes and behaviors toward women, whereas a secondary focus was to promote the inclusion of other underrepresented groups (e.g., racial minorities).” The results were mixed at best – and unfortunately there are good reasons to be sceptical that even the more positive results are as positive as they seem.

    Currently, less than 5 per cent of the sector’s employees are under the age of 25”

  81. I agree on the “bones”. Her collarbones are quite attractive. Her hair frames her face nicely. Arms are slim, but neither scrawny nor muscular. 5’9″ is a good height to have legs that are long, but not too long. She has a good “strong” face. You almost get the sense of steady and reliable, well, for a female I mean. Looks like the type to age well.

    HOLLYWOOD, CA—Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was pumped to attend a taping of The Price Is Right in Hollywood this week. The special guest introduced herself as a U.S. representative and rising star of the Democratic Party. Things got interesting when the game began and every time it was her turn to estimate the price of an item her answer was “free.”

    Items included a set of Italian leather handbags, an all expenses paid trip to the Bahamas, and a brand new 2019 BMW 330i, at all of which Ocasio-Cortez shouted, “FREE!”

    When host Drew Carey asked if Ocasio-Cortez understood the game’s rules, she told Carey not to cat-call her and then responded, “Don’t hate me cause you ain’t me.”

    She went on to guess that diamond earrings, a set of jet skis, and even a giant pile of cash were all free. Carey unveiled a package containing world-class healthcare and she said, “Definitely free.” She was at one point puzzled by a stack of croissants but eventually guessed that they also were free.

    Cortez was never able to advance to the game proper, and as the credits rolled she appeared visibly upset. A hot mic picked up comments she made in frustration, claiming that the game was rigged by capitalism and that “everybody knows giant piles of money are free, that’s like basic economics 101”.

    President Donald Trump ripped Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in a brutal video clip he posted to Twitter concerning the Democrat’s widely-ridiculed comments downplaying the 9/11 terror attacks that killed thousands of Americans.

    The video begins with a clip of Rep. Omar referring to the 9/11 atrocity as being an instance where “some people did something” during a speech she gave in March for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

    The video then cuts to news footage of the second plane crashing into the Twin Towers, before cutting back to Omar’s “some people did something” remark. This sequence is repeated two more times, as the horrifying realities of that fateful day are showcased.

    Liz got me stumbling down memory lane, 59 some years gone when I lived in a huge, ancient and drafty farm house in central Iowa…in late fall we spent a week nailing up plastic sheeting on all the windows on that 2 story wind tunnel.

    Heat? LOL! In the basement was a coal fired furnace and next to the furnace was the coal room complete with a fucking coal chute. One shitty light bulb.
    Once a month or so a truck would dump the coal down the chute, then I had to break up the biggest chunks with a sledge hammer so the pieces could be shoveled into that furnace.
    If I recall right, I could shovel in a half dozen scoops and that would keep the house halfway warm during day.

    Something my step-shithead did really pissed me off one day, so instead of a few scoops like normal, I loaded that fucking furnace up till I could barely close and lock the door. Then merrily caught the bus to school.

    Got home and took the usual beating,,,,it got rather toasty in the house, like 90 all day long. and the furnace got a really interesting red color I was told. Step shithead was not pleased, I thought it was fucking hilarious….

After Trump won the presidency in 2016, the Oxford Dictionaries put the term on its short list for word of the year. Last week, it was added to Dictionary.com, defined as “the tendency among members of the dominant white cultural group to have a defensive, wounded, angry, or dismissive response to evidence of racism.”

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—As presidential candidate Bernie Sanders prepares to release his tax returns that reveal he is now a millionaire, he has clarified his views on socialism.

    “I do very much believe in socialism,” Bernie Sanders told the press. “Inequality is a huge problem. But I never said I believed in only one socialism. I think we need separate socialisms for rich people like me and for poor people.”

    Sanders then further explained by focusing on one of his big targets: billionaires. “Billionaires have way more money than me, a meager millionaire,” he continued. “That’s unfair. We need to make things more equal by giving me some of their millions. But you can’t give those millions to poor people; they wouldn’t know what to do with them, as they never wrote a bestselling book and only own one or fewer houses. So instead they should split among themselves the meager thousands and hundreds that they’re more used to.”
