Race To The Bottom


Well, it actually isn’t so much a race to the bottom; it is more like a shuffle to the bottom.  Still, we are all heading to the bottom.  Here is Deti,

Men: “Women can get married anytime they want. Just not to the top men or the best men. Women need to compromise a little here and there, and they can get most of what they want.”

Women: “No, you’re wrong, especially for less attractive women or Christian women. Women can’t get anything because men aren’t initiating, aren’t building, aren’t creating, and aren’t doing. Men aren’t attractive. Men are shit.”

And to a great extent, both are correct. It’s a race to the bottom. Women can’t get married to halfway decently attractive men, because the bar for what is “attractive” in a man has been pushed way up. Men are losing interest in trying to reach that bar because they can’t, because it’s too difficult, because the juice ain’t worth the squeeze, because even if they get there it’s divorce raped away from them 50% or more of the time, and 30% of the remaining time it’s a miserable slog and day to day conflict.

I have alluded to this problem in many posts, but Deti captures it very well.  Once again, in my early twenties I had a serious decrease in motivation, as I started to see that my age cohort women were less than desirable, mainly due to their attitudes and behaviors.  I am probably not the only one.  The favorite whipping boy, the fellas playing video games, often with modest or no jobs, perhaps have some justification in their behaviors.  For these guys, the blame and animosity is seemingly endless.  But does anybody ask them for their perspective?  Probably not, for deep down they don’t want to hear what they might say.  But, to be honest, many of these fellas probably can’t articulate what their grievance might be, as the discussion of women and their state are not allowed to enter their Overton Window.

So on it goes.  Down and down.  Rational consideration of the problem is forbidden.

Exit question — why are those that claim to be the most rational and scientific often are anything but?

 

Addendum by Okra and Deti:

“Even the majority of churches no longer encourage women to marry young; rather they encourage them to go to college and pursue a career. This comes from their parents, their teachers, their peers, and even their pastors. But while the average age of first marriage has risen to 27, the average age of losing her virginity is still in the late teens. Which means you have a cohort of young women who have spent close to a decade having sex with a number of different partners, who are entirely focused on their career advancement, who have been taught to distrust and disdain men as a sex, who are increasingly addicted to various medications, who have rising levels of obesity and clinical depression, who have been taking artificial hormone treatments for years, suddenly wondering why they have no good marriage prospects as they approach 30.”

Yes, Okra. Thank you.

Even now, we have women complaining that they were “lied to”. That they followed this “life script” because

everyone told them they should do these things.

It is OK, even beneficial, for them to have lots of hot fun sexy sex with lots of different hot fun sexy men.

It is OK to put off marriage and motherhood for college and career.

It is OK to never ever settle, never ever compromise, hold out for absolutely 100% of everything you want.

You can wear anything you want, anytime you want, anywhere you want. Unattractive men are REQUIRED to ignore you and leave you alone, while attractive men are REQUIRED to pay attention to you.

You can have it all. You are special. You can do, be, and say anything you want, anytime you want, anywhere you want, and it is society’s job to make it so you can do, be and say those things.

Ten, 20, 30 years from now, I so badly want to be there for the constant bleating and complaining from women:

“We wuz LIED TO!! Where’s my Good Man when I need him! People told me I could have my career, my 2.1 designer kids, and my marriage to my Hunky Millionaire Handyman who makes a billion dollars a year but “works” 5 hours a week! WHERE ARE THOSE THINGS!!!! I NEED THEM!! THEY WUZ PROMISED TO ME!!!!”

The rude awakening will be epic.

Because I will just sit back and say:

What the fuck is wrong with you girls? Couldn’t you SEE that women who followed your script were getting divorced, marrying men they weren’t attracted to, and driving themselves into depression and addiction because of it? Couldn’t you SEE that women who followed your script were miserable in their jobs? Couldn’t you SEE that women who weren’t married were grindingly unhappy having to support themselves and then rely on men to make up the difference?

We tried to tell you. We tried to show you. We did all we could, but you wouldn’t listen to us and you wouldn’t pay attention to what was going on all around you.

The funny thing is that the people who will be making those complaints are the same women who are today berating men and calling them morons and liars:

“What the fuck is wrong with you guys! No one EVER told you that being nice was sexually attractive!! That’s bullshit! You’re just lying about that. No one ever said “just be nice, just be yourself, and girls will love you”!! You’re lying about that.

“What is it with you guys? Are you blind, autistic, or just stupid? Couldn’t you SEE who was getting the hot girls? Couldn’t you see it was the jocks, the macho shitheads, the assholes, and the douches? Couldn’t you see those were the guys who were getting laid? Couldn’t you see what worked and what didn’t? And then when you failed, why did you keep doing that? What, because some dumb ADULT told you to? Don’t you know you’re supposed to tell you parents, teachers, and all other adults in your life to go fuck themselves when they instruct you?

“Why did you listen to adults? Why did you do what they told and showed you? What, because they supposedly “knew better” than you? What, because you trusted them? Well, that was stupid. Don’t you know you’re not supposed to listen to adults, and especially not to women? Don’t you know you’re supposed to just come out of mommy’s womb just knowing this stuff? Don’t you know you’re supposed to “just get it”? Don’t you know you’re supposed to deliberately ignore everything everyone tells you, figure it all out on your own, with no frame of reference, no reference points, no prior experience, and no instruction whatsoever? Don’t you know that at age 11 or 12, you’re supposed to be able to differentiate good advice from bad, with NO HELP AT ALL from ANYONE??

“Jeez, what is WRONG with you guys??”

And I’ll just chuckle when I give girls the same spiel.

    This is why I begged Dalrock not to delete his blog… The decline in marriage rates, along with the rising average age of first marriage, is driven by women.

    So yes, a young man who works hard at maintaining a good physique, can navigate the corporate world and get a decent living (but had better not try and date anyone he meets at work), has good fashion sense and can afford a nice car, can, by his early thirties get a shot at marrying a late twenties overweight, depressed, promiscuous, tattooed harridan who is convinced that she is still too good for him but will have to settle anyway if she wants to squeeze out a kid or two. So really, what’s the problem?

    In a shocking essay for Harvard Magazine, a professor of law and director of Harvard Law School’s child advocacy legal clinic, claims homeschooling is a threat to children’s rights, a method of promoting white supremacy, and a drain on democratic society — and even goes so far as to suggest a national “presumptive ban” on the practice.

    The party’s leaders believe they have a narrow window of strategic opportunity to strengthen their rule and revise the international order in their favor—before China’s economy sours, before the population grows old, before other countries realize that the party is pursuing national rejuvenation at their expense, and before unanticipated events such as the coronavirus pandemic expose the vulnerabilities the party created in the race to surpass the United States and realize the China dream. The party has no intention of playing by the rules associated with international law, trade, or commerce. China’s overall strategy relies on co-option and coercion at home and abroad, as well as on concealing the nature of China’s true intentions. What makes this strategy potent and dangerous is the integrated nature of the party’s efforts across government, industry, academia, and the military

    A fine read

    But the more Biden rested at home, the more he appeared exhausted and enfeebled—and the more his impromptu and teleprompted lapses terrified the Democratic establishment that they had not chosen a soaring eagle to talon Trump, but an albatross now hanging around their collective neck.

    As a result, a virus became the opposition candidate of sorts. The scarier COVID-19 became, the more the need to shut down the nation, the more likely the economy would tank, the more it became certain that Trump would face a lose-lose decision in late April, as his win-win critics would either damn him as a latter-day Herbert Hoover who wrecked a booming economy or some sort of odious Wall Street financier who put profit over lives.

    Either way, the New York Times will soon have pictures of the dead, with captions insisting the infected died due to Trump’s premature return to normal, or committed suicide given his needlessly long lockdown that wiped out small businesses

    My (general defensive) preferred 12g ammo is ..

    1) 00 Buck
    2) #1 Buck (almost a tie for first place)
    3) Slug (always #1 if a precision shot is necessary)
    4) #4 Buck

    Flight-Control Ammo is always your #1 choice (if available .. it’s like hens teeth down south .. it’s that popular) .. followed by whatever (mnfctr of ammo) that gun likes to shoot with the above 1) thru 4) required situations.

    Reduced loads are done via the following .. I use a youth mossberg pump 20g for the kids & wimminz loaded with 00 (and slugs when required).

    A 20g inside 35 yards is as good as a 12g with properly patterned ammo. So inside a house a 20g makes good sense regarding reduced load shooters.

    As for defensive shotties .. I prefer a pump action. I never have one in the chamber until I need to rack a round. It’s stored muzzle down next to the bed.

    I won’t bore you with my experience with a shotgun in combat .. but I can say this .. It’s always been a “laser beam of death” where-evva I’ve used it .. Ask ANY US NAVY ship / platform boarder .. people do as you tell’em quickly when they see one also. It’s a great close quarter weapon.

    Just remember .. if you ain’t shootin’ .. you better be loading ..

    I disagree.

    Slugs have a place .. but it’s not inside 35 yards when you have quality buckshot available.

    35 yards is about where most tactical shotties patern inside shoulder width (general) .. after that most shotties open up to much .. again .. you have to pattern every load with every shottie you own.

    Slugs are no different .. I’ve found shotties and slug combo’s that are so bad they don’t print beyond 50 yards .. it’s shocking how many folks think a slug is the go-to and miss so much in classes (or 3-gun) .. that the shottie has been removed from many folks weapom of choice. We have more 2 gun matches now because so many want to elminate the shottie from the matchs.

    If you decide on slugs only (e.g. like th Ton) .. never have a choke tighter than modified on your shottie.

    BTW .. inside a house .. a slug has no place on (or in) your weapon.

    Unless you expect the fight to move outside with shots beyond 35 yards.

    On Monday morning, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) loudly condemned the Chinese Communist Party for its duplicity on the coronavirus pandemic. In an appearance on Fox News, he reminded Americans that intelligence sources are tracing the coronavirus back to the lab in Wuhan, and he noted that China’s government lied about the virus and enabled its spread around the world.

    Last week, Michiganders protesting Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-Mich.)’s tyrannical coronavirus quarantine orders shut down the streets of Lansing while safely quarantined in their cars. That protest was organized on Facebook. On Monday, CNN reported that Facebook has removed protest pages in California, New Jersey, and Nebraska, in coordination with state governments. In a statement to PJ Media, the social media company confirmed that it would remove protests that have been prohibited by local governments.

    Remember how the social distancing and shutdowns were designed to flatten the curve? And do you remember the purpose of the flattening? That’s right: it was to prevent the number of cases from exceeding our medical services capacity to handle the number of cases.
    And yet now there appears to be a growing trend to require everyone in the country to be tested before we start to open things up again.

    Or there’s the fringe group who thinks we must wait until a vaccine gets developed (note: IF it gets developed). I saw one idjit bleat “I deserve a virus free life!”. The stupidity and ignorance, while stunning, is unsurprising.

    Anyway, getting back to the first tweet in this thread. All of the actions we’ve taken weren’t designed to eradicate the disease. They were designed to slow the infections to a manageable level.

    However, if you slow the number of infections instead of eliminating them, you still get the same total number of infections, or close to it, especially with a high R value virus.

    So we tried to keep Covid-19 from rolling across the country unimpeded. We did so for a little while, but we cannot do it forever. And then the people in charge decided to overreach, which is what people in charge always do.

    Sorry, you can’t buy seeds to grow your own food because that’s considered non-essential.

    Sorry, you can’t go for a run on the beach by yourself because that’s non-essential.

    Sorry, we’re letting people out of jail, but we’ll arrest you for disobeying our edicts.

    The “let them eat cake” crowd doesn’t like being disobeyed and gets big tech to takedown free speech posts about peaceful demonstrations because said demonstrations oppose government edicts. Uh huh.

    If you expand your comparison internationally, New York City looks less exceptional still. It is not as dense or transit-dependent as, say, Paris (which has less than half of New York’s fatality rate) or Seoul, South Korea, where the pandemic has been all but controlled.

    So what is it about New York City that made it a hot spot? Right now, it looks like the most exceptional thing about New York is its leaders’ belief that the city is unique. This presumption served first as a reassurance that New York would not follow Lombardy’s example, and later as the reason why it had. . . . Tragically, what seems to have put New York on such a different trajectory from San Francisco was that its leaders were so late to shut down public life.

    That is obviously a joke. What woman has the maturity to see a problem situation, and recognize that it is herself, or her own skills, that are lacking? And then go on to admit that she has nothing of value to offer a man? And therefore implicitly admit that a woman should need to offer something to a man, instead of deserving everything she wants simply due to being a special snowflake?

    The women that do have this level of maturity would not be complaining about having nothing to offer other than beauty — they would be looking to cultivate value as a potential wife.

    But it was funny. What would be even more funny is if other women were responding to the vid as if it was a serious discussion.

    “Even the majority of churches no longer encourage women to marry young; rather they encourage them to go to college and pursue a career. This comes from their parents, their teachers, their peers, and even their pastors. But while the average age of first marriage has risen to 27, the average age of losing her virginity is still in the late teens. Which means you have a cohort of young women who have spent close to a decade having sex with a number of different partners, who are entirely focused on their career advancement, who have been taught to distrust and disdain men as a sex, who are increasingly addicted to various medications, who have rising levels of obesity and clinical depression, who have been taking artificial hormone treatments for years, suddenly wondering why they have no good marriage prospects as they approach 30.”

    Yes, Okra. Thank you.

    Even now, we have women complaining that they were “lied to”. That they followed this “life script” because

    everyone told them they should do these things.

    It is OK, even beneficial, for them to have lots of hot fun sexy sex with lots of different hot fun sexy men.

    It is OK to put off marriage and motherhood for college and career.

    It is OK to never ever settle, never ever compromise, hold out for absolutely 100% of everything you want.

    You can wear anything you want, anytime you want, anywhere you want. Unattractive men are REQUIRED to ignore you and leave you alone, while attractive men are REQUIRED to pay attention to you.

    You can have it all. You are special. You can do, be, and say anything you want, anytime you want, anywhere you want, and it is society’s job to make it so you can do, be and say those things.

    Ten, 20, 30 years from now, I so badly want to be there for the constant bleating and complaining from women:

    “We wuz LIED TO!! Where’s my Good Man when I need him! People told me I could have my career, my 2.1 designer kids, and my marriage to my Hunky Millionaire Handyman who makes a billion dollars a year but “works” 5 hours a week! WHERE ARE THOSE THINGS!!!! I NEED THEM!! THEY WUZ PROMISED TO ME!!!!”

    The rude awakening will be epic.

    Because I will just sit back and say:

    What the fuck is wrong with you girls? Couldn’t you SEE that women who followed your script were getting divorced, marrying men they weren’t attracted to, and driving themselves into depression and addiction because of it? Couldn’t you SEE that women who followed your script were miserable in their jobs? Couldn’t you SEE that women who weren’t married were grindingly unhappy having to support themselves and then rely on men to make up the difference?

    We tried to tell you. We tried to show you. We did all we could, but you wouldn’t listen to us and you wouldn’t pay attention to what was going on all around you.

    The funny thing is that the people who will be making those complaints are the same women who are today berating men and calling them morons and liars:

    “What the fuck is wrong with you guys! No one EVER told you that being nice was sexually attractive!! That’s bullshit! You’re just lying about that. No one ever said “just be nice, just be yourself, and girls will love you”!! You’re lying about that.

    “What is it with you guys? Are you blind, autistic, or just stupid? Couldn’t you SEE who was getting the hot girls? Couldn’t you see it was the jocks, the macho shitheads, the assholes, and the douches? Couldn’t you see those were the guys who were getting laid? Couldn’t you see what worked and what didn’t? And then when you failed, why did you keep doing that? What, because some dumb ADULT told you to? Don’t you know you’re supposed to tell you parents, teachers, and all other adults in your life to go fuck themselves when they instruct you?

    “Why did you listen to adults? Why did you do what they told and showed you? What, because they supposedly “knew better” than you? What, because you trusted them? Well, that was stupid. Don’t you know you’re not supposed to listen to adults, and especially not to women? Don’t you know you’re supposed to just come out of mommy’s womb just knowing this stuff? Don’t you know you’re supposed to “just get it”? Don’t you know you’re supposed to deliberately ignore everything everyone tells you, figure it all out on your own, with no frame of reference, no reference points, no prior experience, and no instruction whatsoever? Don’t you know that at age 11 or 12, you’re supposed to be able to differentiate good advice from bad, with NO HELP AT ALL from ANYONE??

    “Jeez, what is WRONG with you guys??”

    Bowser & Blue Colorectal Surgeon Lyrics

    We praise the colorectal surgeon
    Misunderstood and much maligned
    Slaving away in the heart of darkness
    Working where the sun don’t shine
    Respect the colorectal surgeon
    It’s a calling few would crave
    Lift up your hands and join us
    Let’s all do the finger wave
    When it comes to spreading joy
    There are many techniques
    Some spread joy to the world
    And others just spread cheeks
    Some may think the cardiologist
    Is their best friend
    But the colorectal surgeon knows…
    He’ll get you in the end!
    Why the colorectal surgeon?
    It’s one of those mysterious things.
    Is it because in that profession
    There are always openings?
    When I first met a colorectal surgeon
    He did not quite understand;
    I said, “Hey nice to meet you
    But do you mind? We don’t shake hands.”
    He sailed right through medical school
    Because he was a whiz
    Oh but he never thought of psychology
    Though he read passages
    A doctor he wanted to be
    For golf he loved to play
    But this is not quite what he meant…
    By eighteen holes a day!
    Praise the colorectal surgeon
    Misunderstood and much maligned
    Slaving away in the heart of darkness
    Working where the sun don’t shine!

    One of the more interesting television series of the past decade is Occupied, an intelligent Norwegian nationalist political thriller now available on Netflix. It’s both an anti–European Union tribute to the Norwegian people and the near-utopian country they have built, and a clear-eyed critique of their increasing foolishness. Although played out with stoic gravity, the show also offers an amusing satire on Nordic gender relations as its henpecked heroes can seldom persuade their feminist wives to heed their husbands’ warnings that life is about to become far more serious.

    Moreover, Occupied serves as a vast metaphor for what happens to a feminized culture that finds itself cast back into the old masculine world of force. It’s based upon a 2012 story idea by best-selling detective novelist Jo Nesbø, who takes a Hobbesian view of human nature. “I think the feeling we [Norwegians] are secure and things can’t really change is an illusion,” he cautions.

    His wife becomes an immigrant rights activist campaigning to ensure that the Russian newcomers are not deprived of their human rights by xenophobic Norwegian institutions.

    He seems to be making progress, but his pregnant wife announces she’s moving to Paris, where she takes up with an Algerian Jewish human rights lawyer.

    Meanwhile, the reporter’s wife begins an affair with a soulfully melancholy Russian security agent from Central Asia.

    Throughout Occupied, Norwegian women are depicted as mildly contemptuous of their menfolk and unable to resist darker men from afar. For example, a pretty young blonde recruits a pudgy computer genius to help her get her black Muslim immigrant boyfriend out of prison for an attack on a Russian facility. Smitten, he performs prodigies of hacking in her service, but with no response from lovely Frida, whose heart permanently belongs to Faisal from Somalia.
