Sarah Hoyt wrote a piece a while back that kind of sums up what I think the “incentive” for feminist group-think is:
”You see, just like testosterone boosts your self confidence and your ability to feel good about yourself, female hormones boost your ability to bond, your desire for group cohesion, and your not-perfectly-rational wish to belong.
So you get a group of women, and it’s easy to get them all to march out for no particular reason and with no end in sight.
You’re invited by friends, because “we’re all doing it.” And you go, because your children or your mom or stuff. Because your friend told you “we have to do it so the children don’t have to” or because “isn’t your mom homeless.”
And unless you’re rock bottom stupid you know it doesn’t make a wit of sense.
But your friend is so sure.
And if you ask questions or point out it makes no sense, they’re not going to talk to you again. There’s going to be a rift, and who are your kids going to play with?
Women are evolutionarily designed to avoid conflict and reinforce the group. This means they can be very good for creating happy extended families, and very bad for creating crab buckets at work or in political situations. And they’re really good at mass movements of astounding and jaw-dropping incoherence.
So what is the cure? Rational. practical men.
Do we produce these men as much as we used to? Even with more education on average, I would say that the answer is no.
Would today’s women listen to rational, practical men? Probably not. They believe that they don’t need men individually, or as a group.
Have some women figured the above out? Yes they have. We have a few around here as examples.
How likely is a woman to figure this out? Probably not so much, as she has herd-think driving her away from the truth.
What to do?
