The decline of the world and civilisation as a function of the decline of the role of men in the world has been an ongoing disaster since the feminists were given power in society. No article points out the problem better than this article. However, unlike most other articles/posts on the subject, the linked post looks at the issue from an exclusively male perspective. The following quote pretty much sums up the mindset of so many modern men…….
“Social commentators, journalists, academics, scientists and young men themselves have all spotted the trend: among men of about 15 to 30 years old, ever-increasing numbers are checking out of society altogether, giving up on women, sex and relationships and retreating into pornography, sexual fetishes, chemical addictions, video games and, in some cases, boorish lad culture, all of which insulate them from a hostile, debilitating social environment created, some argue, by the modern feminist movement.
You can hardly blame them. Cruelly derided as man-children and crybabies for objecting to absurdly unfair conditions in college, bars, clubs and beyond, men are damned if they do and damned if they don’t: ridiculed as basement-dwellers for avoiding aggressive, demanding women with unrealistic expectations, or called rapists and misogynists merely for expressing sexual interest.”
As a general rule, if you want someone to simply give up competing in a given environment, then putting them in a no-win situation is the best way to go about it. Once upon a time, men had a realistic set of expectations placed in front of them to be considered respectable. Modern men can hardly be blamed for not bothering with women and social conventions in general if the practical reality is that, no matter what they do, the game is rigged so they can’t come out ahead. I doesn’t help when the basic rules of sexual conduct are set by women – and arbitrarily at that – and these rules are never explained to men…….
“The new rules men are expected to live by are never clearly explained, says Rivlin, leaving boys clueless and neurotic about interacting with girls. “That might sound like a good thing because it encourages men to take the unromantic but practical approach of asking women how they should behave, but it causes a lot of them to just opt out of the game and retreat to the sanctuary of their groups of lads, where being rude to women gets you approval, and you can pretty much entirely avoid one-on-one socialising with the opposite sex.”
The last part about men preferring to act like lads (and cads) and treat women poorly is an important one. We live in a society whereby men are increasingly treating women with less and less respect and courtesy. Now you know why. Women, on the other hand, constantly bemoan the lack of civility and respect they get from modern men and can’t understand where it comes from. If women want a return to the days of civility and chivalry from men then they would do well to work out what the hell it is they want and let men know what it is. As a rule, we men like to understand the rules of whatever environment we happen to be in so that we can work out just what the fuck we are supposed to be doing. The current status of relations between the sexes – as defined by women – completely does away with this and women still can’t work out what has gone wrong. Of course, all this has a hugely detrimental affect on sexual relations, mainly with younger men (and boys) not being able to be comfortable with the process of even learning how to relate to girls/women……..
“There are also a lot of blokes who ignore women because they are scared and don’t know how to act. It goes without saying that boys who never spend any time alone with women are not very good at relationships.”
“The result? “A lot of nice but awkward young men are opting out of approaching women because there is no opportunity for them to make mistakes without suffering worse embarrassment than ever.”
That last quote is important as it signifies a major shift in the relations between the sexes. In past generations, a man who lacked in confidence with women but was other wise respectable, was pardoned by women for his lack of sexual confidence (up to a point) because he was respectable. In other words, in years past, a man’s machismo wasn’t the be all, end all of his attractiveness and women were insightful enough (or intelligent enough) to realise this. Ultimately, this enabled a lot of good men to get married, enjoy relationships/sex and raise children. Sadly, those days have passed. In the modern era, a man’s machismo counts for pretty much 100% of his sexual value in the eyes of women. That is, even if he is otherwise useless, a man who exudes sexual confidence will have no trouble attracting women. On the other hand, the world is full of perpetually single men who, whilst perfectly functional and respectable to the rest of society, are deemed to be unworthy by women because they don’t act like testosterone over-loaded savages. The ironic thing is that the only way to become confident at anything is to try, fail, learn from failure and try again without being punished for failing. Modern women are only too happy to humiliate an unsuccessful suitor by embarrassing him in front of others or by labelling him a creep. Is it any wonder that increasing numbers of men are seeing avoiding approaching women as a lesser evil than trying to keep up in an environment where the deck is stacked against them and the rules contradict each other?
“Men say the gap between what women say and what they do has never been wider. Men are constantly told they should be delicate, sensitive fellow travellers on the feminist path. But the same women who say they want a nice, unthreatening boyfriend go home and swoon over simple-minded, giant-chested, testosterone-saturated hunks in Game of Thrones. Men know this, and, for some, this giant inconsistency makes the whole game look too much like hard work. Why bother trying to work out what a woman wants, when you can play sports, masturbate or just play video games from the comfort of your bedroom?”
Why indeed? The contradiction between what women say they want and what they actually want has never been greater. Men are creatures of pragmatics; we do what we see works. If being kind and chivalrous truly attracted women them men would be lining up to join charm schools. As it is, men by the millions pay good money for pick-up guides which are little more than instruction manual in how to treat women like shit. Why is this? Because treating women poorly gets a man more sexual attention from women than treating a woman like a lady. The fact that a sleazy, tattooed drug dealer who peddles crack to kids gets infinitely more sexual attention than a mild mannered, accountant in proof of that. Yet, when confronted with this contradiction, most women deny it to their dying breath. Why indeed do men even bother?
The fact that women are quite happy to keep a misandric society in place is probably never going to convince men to become re-involved, either…….
“One professional researcher in his late thirties, about whom I have been conversing on this topic for some months, puts it spicily: “For the past, at least, 25 years, I’ve been told to do more and more to keep a woman. But nobody’s told me what they’re doing to keep me.
“I can tell you as a heterosexual married male in management, who didn’t drop out of society, the message from the chicks is: ‘It’s not just preferable that you should fuck off, but imperative. You must pay for everything and make everything work; but you yourself and your preferences and needs can fuck off and die.”
That sums up modern women for you; all they want is a man’s resources. The man himself is irrelevant. In a very real sense, this confirms the concept of women as gold diggers. In times past, men merely suspected that some women were out to marry their wallets; quotes like the one above are proof of it. Keep in mind that modern women don’t even have to marry to be gold diggers, the gynocentric state has taken care of that for them. Given that men pay the majority of taxes, you would think it would make sense that a proportional amount of the taxpayer dollar was spent on men’s issues. But no – quite the opposite; far more is spent on women’s issues than men’s issues. If you think women are likely to protest this anomaly in the near future you are dreaming. If anything, the zero-sum mentality of women causes them to see and possible gain for men as a loss to women. With this is mind, women will do all they can to keep the guvment from spending money on men so said guvment has more money to spend on women. Deep down, most men know this and they know that the overwhelming majority of women don’t really care about them. If you don’t believe that, try getting a woman to donate towards prostate or testicular cancer research; it’s easier to get blood out of a stone. Men, on the other hand, will happily donate towards breast and cervical cancer research. Such is life. Why would men even consider having anything to do with the other half of humanity that has no regard for them?
We can also talk about the huge impact feminism has had on male education, employment and general rights of living (hint: it hasn’t been good). There are quite a few mentions of that in the linked article and the section mentioning Jack Donovan is quite insightful. I recommend anyone who needs waking up to the realities of men read this article. If you are a man who is just coming aware there is something drastically wrong with the world today, I definitely recommend this article.
Anyway you look at it, there is something badly wrong with the world and the average man on the street didn’t cause it.
