Not Good


Jack recently wrote,

In the long run this “new lack of rules” market based on sexual desire doesn’t actually serve the women market participants either, because they are increasingly left with relatively unattractive men as options for mates once they are finished exploiting the height of their own market power during their 20s and earlier 30s.

The above probably wasn’t meant to be comprehensive, but there are many more reasons that it does not serve the women well. Quite a few as a matter of fact. Let us consider,

  1. Men that are objectively reasonably good catches, ones that they might marry, just won’t be considered worth much; leading to either/or an unhappy marriage or divorce.
  2. Men, seeing that they have to wait a long time, seeing the quality of women that are available, just won’t try so hard to improve themselves and their situation. (This would have been me)
  3. There is the alpha widow thing. Enough said. (related to #1)
  4. Because of their late teens/twenties activities the women have not developed feminine/motherly attributes/skills. This does not help them in either the MMP or later when they might actually become a mother.
  5. Women who have gone through the whole empowered carousel/carousel-light experience look at marriage more from a what can I gain idea rather than a how can we be a team perspective. This hurts all in the long run.
  6. MGTOW
  7. Over their late teens and twenties, they become empowered and/or bitchy. When it comes to snagging a fella, they might hide this, sometimes successfully. However, it will eventually come out. When it does, it does not go over well.

Please feel free to add your own.

    Reject men for a decade and you then expect them to
    A) forget that decade happened,
    B) not feel revenge, regret or indifference from such rejection
    C) overcome individualistic habits ingrained through a decade of repetition

    All the other bullshit

    You are reinforcing behaviour for an extended period. It takes 6 months to set a new habit or behaviour let alone a decade. Even if men wanted to change, it would be very difficult to do so.

    “just won’t try so hard to improve themselves and their situation” (men)

    When you get to your forties and you have been batting .600 for the past twenty years, wasting a ton of time, tears, hurt, and rejection…….it’s time for the absement to stop. It’s time for the “pain” to stop and the best option is leave, walk, and deal the best they can.

    Sadly, for many this turns to very unhealthy behaviors (including drinking and drugging). There really isn’t much else to try to improve upon after a man hits his forties with no success.

    “just won’t try so hard to improve”…..my ass

  5. From the post at Sigma’s:

    Due to the generally higher male libido and perceived “sexual need” of men (not in every case, but enough generally so as to skew the entire market), any market that is primarily, or even substantially, about sex will feature much greater male demand expressed at all levels of the market than female demand, other than at the very top of the male side of the market due to the concentration of female demand there … so that in the rest of the market outside the top 10% (or so, now due to the tightening effect caused by the rise of swipe/phone dating apps and their intensified screening of men) of males, women are the “sellers”, and men are the “buyers”. This fundamental inequality in demand is why the world features such things as Instagram, and OnlyFans, and internet porn, and cam girls, and sugar babies, and all the rest as well — male demand substantially exceeds female demand, such that females are “sellers” and can, if they wish, literally charge men fairly easily as we have seen recently.

    Another feature of human nature that plays into the mix and greatly exacerbates the glut is that men regard womens’ collective attractiveness by a normal distribution, whereas women tend to view most men as unattractive. This tendency is reflected in the following graph based on OK Cupid data, which illustrates the skew in perceived attractiveness between men and women, and how womens’ high attractiveness ratings are concentrated towards a very small group of men, as compared with how men tend to perceive attractiveness in women.

    These paragraphs are treated as separate issues, but they actually seem to be the same thing to me. I also believe that the “much greater male demand” conclusion to be in error. Demand from both sexes is about the same, but the inequality shows up in what each sex deems as acceptable options.

    That men will generally accept a larger percentage of women as being acceptable for sex doesn’t actually change the amount of aggregate demand for sex in the same way that women only wanting the top men doesn’t change aggregate demand for sex on their end.

    If I’m reading it wrong please show me my error.

    This is of no concern to our rulers. They are sure that if they crank up the supply side the demand side will do something and then something else will happen and before long the roads are full of electric cars. Now, some will claim that these announcements are just like Soviet five-year plans. They are not realistic targets and the people behind them have no intention of doing what they claim. In other words, they still accept the laws of supply and demand, they just like lying.

    Maybe that is true. The fake meat business, on the other hand, suggests they really believe the new economic model. Five years ago, the number of people walking around demanding a burger made from beetles that tasted just like a burger was zero. We have vegans and vegetarians, for sure, but we also have schizophrenics and manic depressives too. Mentally ill people are a part of the human condition. Normal people want to eat a balanced diet that includes meat.

    Women over-rate themselves and under-rate men. The former leads to the latter. Women have put themselves on a pedestal of narcissism, creating the illusion of a superiority gap between themselves and men. As the gap grows, the impatience and contempt the “haves” project at the “have-nots” grows along with it.

    Women have overrated themselves so voraciously they are far into the debit side of the ledger. As usual it is men who pick up the tab and pay the price. IMHO we should stop doing it.

    Consider the cri de coeur of Washington Post public editor Hamilton Nolan, inspired by Tesla’s decision to scrap its media-relations department. How could that happen?

    Nolan knows how, and that’s what bothers him: Tesla scrapped its media-relations department because the media don’t much matter to it. Tesla has plenty of ways to get its story out without relying on the media, and that makes the media much less important — and much less powerful. And it’s the power part that hurts the most.

    Writes Nolan: “We are living through a historic, technology-fueled shift in the balance of power between the media and its subjects. The subjects are winning. . . . As journalists, we all view this as a horrifying assault on the public’s right to know, and on our own status as brave defenders of the public good. And that is all true, for what it’s worth. But this is about power.”

    There is also good news on an inexpensive and effective medication out of Japan. At the end of January, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government announced that it would begin a clinical trial on the anti-parasitic drug ivermectin in COVID-19 patients with mild symptoms. This study will add to the 41 studies to date globally that strongly indicate ivermectin is effective when used early and outpatient.

    In the meantime, the Tokyo Medical Association has petitioned the government to approve the use of ivermectin and the steroid dexamethasone for use in early COVID-19. According to Chairman Haruo Ozaki, these drugs can be administered by a primary care doctor and carry few side effects. He cited the studies conducted in other nations as evidence that the drugs effectively prevent the progression of symptoms in COVID-19 and he said doctors should have permission to use them on an emergency-use basis. It would be great if our CDC and FDA did the same. However, the decision has to go through the NIH first, and it looks like that agency blew off Sen. Ron Johnson’s (R–Wisc.) inquiry.

    @KH – thanks for the link to the Zman.

    I’ve been reading the comments at his Essential Knowledge: Part 1 link, and ran into their brief discussion of Heinlein. Someone quoted the stuff below, attributed to Heilein. I read a lot of Heilein’s stuff in the eighth and ninth grades, and so was pleased to find the quote below reproduced in a news paper shortly after wife and I were married and living in Washington, D.C. I cut it out and tacked it to my bulletin board.

    My brother’s wife and young son came to visit us for about six weeks. At one point, she saw the Heilein quote posted on my bulletin board, read it, and turned to me and asked “why?”. That simple question taught my young self a lot about women, even though it took me several more years of experience to understand all I had learned with that simple question.

    I found the quote fascinating because someone had put into print something that I had believed for some time, even if I could not state it as eloquently as Heinlein. She found the quote confusing. Her only thought was to wonder why any one should strive to live up to the words in Heinlein’s quote.

    I’m thinking there are women in Texas right now, with this deep freeze shutting so much down, that would have benefitted from using Heinlein’s quote as a standard and matched themselves to that standard as best they could.

    From here:
    https://thezman.com/wordpress/?p=8424#comment-25359

    Heinlein: A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

    I’m cutting Heinlein some slack on his Specialization is for insects comment. When one’s heart or computer or car fails and needs to be repaired, one shoudn’t send for an accountant. Specialization does have its place.

    News in the Trump years became a narrative drama, with each day advancing a tale of worsening political emergency, driven by subplots involving familiar casts of characters, in the manner of episodic television. It worked, but news directors and editors hit a stumbling block. If you cover everything like there’s no tomorrow, what happens when there is, in fact, a tomorrow? The innovation was to use banner headlines to saturate news cycles, often to the exclusion of nearly any other news, before moving to the next controversy so quickly that mistakes, errors, or rhetorical letdowns were memory-holed.

    OKH. a lot of the “advice” I read about survival water treatment is 100% bullshit, and in a bad situation can be deadly advice if followed. That Grayl filter is one of the best and easiest to operate, and produces enough water for a couple of people when all else fails.
    Iodine is a lot more effective disinfectant than bleach, but tastes bad. Temperature and time is also a factor in water disinfection, turbidity and mineral content too

    OT:
    This morning I mentioned the Sigma thread about what I said “I screened for potential” to Mike. He always says, “She knew me when all I had was big plans and dreams”.
    He actually takes pride in the fact we started from nothing (except for the money I had, from babysitting and other jobs starting in ninth grade of which I hadn’t spent a penny if I didn’t have to).
    He screened too. Which is why his high school (and college) girlfriends are now divorced, fat, ugly and unpleasant.

    A Washington State Couple Decides to Steal a GOP Election Sign And Now Somebody’s Dead

    Conjin has been in jail on a second-degree murder charge. Her $500,000 bail was halved on Wednesday. Her attorney argued in court that the shooting was in defense of others. John Conjin is charged with fourth-degree assault.

    No charges have been leveled against Tryon, who started it all, engaged in a fight, and committed an apparent act of theft.

    Re. Heinlein: Upthread I said I found the quote fascinating because someone had put into print something that I had believed for some time …

    My appreciation for the Heinlein quote that I posted upthread, and being discussed at the Zman link, is because it highlights something often overlooked – the distinction between content knowledge (reading about it) and process knowledge (things learned while doing something). Heinlein’s quote highlights the value of knowledge gained by actually doing a host of different things. To an extent, that is what was being discussed at the Zman link I provided upthread – the value of learning from the process and not just books.

    I got that point the first time I read Heinlein’s quote. I assume he did not mean that billions of people should do only those things he mentioned. His point was to get out there and gain a more well-rounded education, and some proper perspective on life, by actually doing a wide variety of things. As opposed to just sitting at ones desk all their life and just reading about it. When my brother’s wife read that quote and asked “why?”, I understood that the larger point of Heinlein’s quote was lost on her. I subsequently discovered from experience the thing that has been discussed in the manosphere – women respond best to the concrete; they often do not respond well, if at all, to abstraction. I’ve rarely encountered a male who has difficulty dealing with abstract concepts.

    Somewhere in the comments at the link I posted to Zman, a number of folks are making this point in their own way. Do it. Don’t just read about it. Then, when one encounters novel situations (unexpected deep freezes in Texas), one has a broader base of experience (hence process knowledge) with which to fashion solutions – assuming one has defined the problem correctly in the first place, which is a whole nother topic in itself.

    Keep in mind…know what’s north of Minnesota? Canada

    But Horseman, what’s south of Down Under? Antarctica

    In Antarctica the Sun freezes so bad it drags itself around the horizon all day trying to warm its arse on the ice. And that’s during the Summer. In Winter the Sun simply can’t stand it and gets outta Dodge.

    Although the same happens inside the Arctic Circle, Antarctica has a more abiding coldness. Once frozen down there, a man’s balls never entirely thaw (that’s why my kids are so blond). What else can we expect from our planet’s most icy place? Antarctic ice comprises 90% of all Earth’s ice and 70% of the fresh water

    There is reason to think the country is racing toward an extremely low level of infection. As more people have been infected, most of whom have mild or no symptoms, there are fewer Americans left to be infected. At the current trajectory, I expect Covid will be mostly gone by April, allowing Americans to resume normal life.

    I do not know the drinking water disinfection methods that were used by the Texas cities prior to the freeze, but I have a strong hunch that once the distribution systems were contaminated to the point of issuing a boil water directive, there are perhaps thousands of miles of pipe that will need flushing. Water issues for Texas are going to continue for a very long time to come I think….

    hadn’t thought about the pipes needing flushing, Larry. our little town, apparently, does something good about their water b/c we haven’t had any water problems. my sister’s town, though, 20 min away, has been under a boil-water-order for the last 24?

    Larry,
    What flummoxed me was the pictures of people lined up for a mile + waiting to get into a grocery store… TWO DAYS IN. Here were people afraid of starving to death after two days… You don’t have to be a prepper to have enough canned goods and non-perishables on hand to last a couple of weeks.

    Okrahead – Texans know what to do with a hurricane, they know how to think ahead … but winter weather in most of Texas, especially the southern half? we often joke that we get a weekend of winter. this, though, this was just unprecedented. it’s not like we’ve not had bad weather before – we have, but it’s always been a couple days … and if it was longer we could go visit family or friends in another part of the state. but this time it was the whole.freakin.state. there was no where to go. couldn’t go down south or up north or out west or over to the east – it was the.whole.state. there’s just never been anything to cause us to think that we might be without for a whole week.
