“A supporter approaches you and says, ‘Senator, I’m old-fashioned, and my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one woman.’ What is your response?”
“Well, I’m going to assume it’s a guy who said that. And I’m gonna say, ‘Then just marry one woman. I’m cool with that” Pause “Assuming you can find one.”
There are many things to unpack here. Let us start with the “Assuming you can find one” statement. Yes, there are any many who are unable to find regular (or even irregular) sex. Men are the buyers, women are the sellers, and women use their leverage; perhaps unfairly. I am not sure that this is anything for women to gloat about; but they do. Furthermore, as we all know, modern women are driven by unleashed hypergamy, making men at the bottom unattractive. Being driven by unbridled hypergamy doesn’t seem to be anything to be proud of either. But proud they are.
Many of the women out there are just plain undesirable, be it from the physical, attitude, mental health perspectives. But that doesn’t seem to matter, as there are large swaths of men that pursue these women; sometimes even marrying them. But often not. These men are a bit of an embarrassment to Team Man. But they are what they are.
There are however a reasonably large cohort of men who have achieved a measure of success in life; who realize the danger and/or lack of value in many women. Of course, these men are prime candidates for marriage, yet they won’t come out to play. Women can be very unhappy about this, but these men don’t gloat. There is no pride. There is just a just the way that it is attitude.
Compare and contrast.
