The Lamentations of “Fun Single Girl” in the City

red-wineI had another post planned for today, however after seeing this article show up on my Twitter feed, I couldn’t help but comment on it. As it demonstrates many of the various concepts I use in my writing for most of the articles on this blog. Entitlement, solipsism, hypergamy, woman logic, it’s all there on full display for the world to see. The author outlines her thesis on why being a “fun single girl” ready to get off the carousel, is not fun anymore, because men are not lining up to buy her drinks, dinners and spend hours convincing her why she should choose him. In her own words:

If you’re a single woman, you probably envisioned your twenties as a roaring social scene full of expensive dinners and lavish nights out. You probably thought you’d have a boyfriend, or at least a few dates a week.

Which is woman speak for being in the most extreme case high demand, and limited supply, thus being able to command impressive prices for yourself, in the form of bartering expensive dinners and lavish nights out in exchange for your company. She belabors the situation a “fun, single girl” in the big city is now living in, where:

They’ll make eye contact with you in the bar, but never come over. They’ll get your number, but never call. They’ll offer to buy you a drink, but never pay.

They’ll say a girl is hot, but never hit on her. They’ll text you for a week, but never ask you out. They’ll do absolutely everything but make a move.

This is a great case to exhibit expectations and reality, where one markets and attempts to sell a product, get some nibblers bit nobody that really bites. One could question why this situation is without a doubt replaying itself in cities all across the Western world, as strings of fresh out of college women finally get to enter the amusement park, and find that they are unable to get on any rides.

Perhaps this is a sign of the times, that after 30+ years of “all men are bastards“, “boys are stupid throw rocks at them“, they are finally checking out. Alternatively, when the man reaches his mid-twenties, he’ll have spent half his life being medicated for being “disorderly” or “rambunctious” at school. Perhaps he attended University and thus was made to partake in a consent class where it was made clear to him that he needs consent to talk to a woman, and he’s just respecting her space. This is somewhat like the girl who had hitting on a woman in public being made hate crime, who then laments that men never hit on her on the street anymore. [2]

The Blue and Red Pill Theoretical Framework

red-pill-blue-pillWhen I first returned to the manosphere after about a decade absence about a year ago and started reading around, I was surprised at how much it had changed. When I left it back in the early 2000s, what is now themed the manosphere, was composed largely by pick-up material often times focused on club game, or the likes. So when I found the Red Pill reddit, the blogs listed off it and started reading its contents, I discovered that the nascent philosophy that more or less consisted of “Do A, then do B, and then profit” had grown much larger. Many of the early pick up artists had identified what worked, but didn’t focus so much on why it worked. Thus, the general teaching in the sphere was very much focused on the “learning by doing” method, which consisted of “learn these lines, then go do 500 approaches”. However, the development that had taken place over my 10 year absence, was much more focused on developing frameworks for understanding the fabric of reality, and the very metaphor of “The Red Pill” pointed to seeing the world from outside the simulation presented by social and cultural programming.

One of the first things I read was an article on seeing reality for what it actually is, for someone with a background in philosophy and research methodology, this points towards experiencing the mind-independent reality in which we live. An early post of mine on this blog was concerning the objective vs. the subjective trying to outline what the distinction is between facts and our interpretation of facts. Or in other words, mind-dependent and mind-independent information.

When designing research projects, the theoretical framework is a collection of source material that serves as the foundation of research. It contains relevant terms and their definitions, relevant theories with citations, explicit statements of theoretical assumptions, and the sources that assist you in making the argument for, and asking questions about your research. It is building a foundation from concepts in order to assist you in the creation of hypotheses and theories. Continue reading

Gendernomics: Book Value

dataRecently I came across some statistical tables from Our World in Data that outlined how the preferences for 18 traits had changed in women and men seeking a prospective partner from 1938 until 2008. This was an interesting data cache, because 70 years is only 2- 3 generations, and thus it is unlikely that any change in the underlying biological framework of our species would have changed in any meaningful way. However, our society and culture in the West has changed markedly. From 1938 until today, we have had World War 2, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, The Cold War, 2 Iraq wars, the war on terror, 6 – 7 serious stock market crashes, The War on Drugs and the War on Terror. We have seen the second and third waves of feminism, the rise of globalism, the entry of women into the workplace, the rise of easy divorce, and we have seen the anti-establishment hippies take over the establishment. Finally, the initial survey was done right at the end of the global depression (1938) and the second survey was done on the start of the 2008 financial crisis.

This means that it gives us insight into how people’s partner preferences have been changed throughout one of the more change prone periods in recent history. One marked especially by changes to the gender dynamics that had been dominant for most of written history. Continue reading
