Single mothers, and nearly all other women for that matter, won’t listen to a bunch of guys on the internet. The womenfolk won’t listen to men period, except selectively to the few alpha men in their circle, and only the bare minimum that they must in order to stay in good graces or out of trouble.
The only thing that will bring bad girls of all varieties to heel is other women. Women used to behave themselves because they feared the wrath of other women, and the social consequences that would result from crossing the Queen Bee. Nowadays, women behave appallingly for the same reason. The only difference is the nature of the Queen Bee. A girl who doesn’t toe the line, whatever the line is, loses access to the social life of her community very quickly indeed.
I see it in my two daughters, who try their best to bat their eyes and charm their way out of consequences when my husband lays down the law, but who cower when I have a quiet word to back up his edicts. It’s not that they don’t take him seriously, but that they recognize the pain of female ostracization.
It is commonly held in the manosphere that women are herd animals, who fear being thrown out of the herd. The supposition is that in the tribal days, the womenfolk operated in the village while the men hunted. It was very social in the village, with the normal in groups / out groups, changing alliances, mostly indirect social interactions, etc. But in the end, the group mostly protected their own, except when it didn’t.
Being thrown out by one man was not necessarily a big deal, as one might find another. But being thrown out of the group for a big offense against the group, that was scary. That is what is being discussed above. Being a slut in a group that does not condone sluttiness can lead to being thrown out of the group, a real horror. In reality, it is not so much a horror in the modern age, but the deep down reaction is still there.
Avoiding this reaction is significant driving force in women always pushing for new behaviors being sanctified by the group (and law). Since I am not a woman, I don’t know how bad the reaction is to being a loner outside the group; perhaps the ladies will chime in here.
As a fella, I learned that groups come and go, but principles and abilities are always. In other words, it is not necessarily to be a lone wolf, engaging and disengaging when needed. Would such a way of life be horrifying to women? Ladies, please let us all know.
