The rights of women

Men these days. They show no respect for the female imperative.

The myth of gender equality

Feminists may talk up equality, but the fact is that women don't want anything to do with it in marriage.
It’s common knowledge that roughly half of marriages today end in divorce. This is up significantly from the 1960s, when about 30 percent of marriages ended in divorce within 15 years. The underlying social and economic changes that have spurred this increase remain a bit of a mystery. But the topic was taken up in a massive 2016 study conducted by Harvard sociology professor Alexandra Killewald.

“A core unresolved question is how trends in marital stability relate to ...

Burn the coal

Never stop paying the toll:
New paint will go on the walls at Nicole Beverly's Ypsilanti Township house in the coming weeks.

She'll rip down the boards she nailed to the windows by the front door, too. Beverly put them up several years ago as a safety measure to ensure her abusive ex-husband couldn't break the glass and then reach inside to open the door.

"When he was stalking us, we literally had to do anything we could to slow him down," she said. "We nailed a board over each of my side windows. I had to ...

In fairness, male Democrats are creeps

Can you blame women for not wanting to get with them?
It turns out that Republicans are having sex more frequently than Democrats, a study published Monday revealed.

The study, conducted by Professor Nicholas H. Wolfinger, examined the sex lives of Democrats, Republicans and Independents. Independents and Republicans are more likely to have sex at least once a week than their Democrat peers, the study showed.

“This finding left me curious about how specific components of relational bliss might be affected by political leanings. The answer is surprising: Republicans have more sex than Democrats and cheat less ...

A smile is not interest

And being nice does not mean that she has the hots for you. Quite the opposite, usually:
Do you ever wonder why it seems like all pretty girls are nasty bitches?  Does it seem like every time you try to talk to pretty girls they are kind of low grade mean and hostile to you?  I know that sometimes I feel this way.  However I’ve learned a very important truth that explains why so many pretty girls are forced to act nasty to men they meet.

When kind, sweet girls are really nice to men who they don’t ...

Seriously, we do notice

30 things women don't realize that men notice:
4. The fact that girls often can’t think for themselves.
When with their friends, girls will usually always look at each other before making a decision.

11. If she’s playing stupid.
We can tell when you are playing stupid, and it is not cute.
We can also tell when you're attracted to another man, but refuse to admit it.

Hypergamy conquers all

British man was dumped in favor of a UK residence-seeking jihadi.
<>The jilted boyfriend of London Bridge terrorist Rachid Redouane's wife has told how she dumped him by text message to begin her new life with the jihadi. Phillip Nowell said he had been separated from girlfriend Charisse O'Leary for a few months when she began secretly seeing Moroccan mass murderer Redouane.

Within just 12 weeks of ending the relationship, Charisse, 38, married Redouane, 30, one of three men who murdered eight people in Saturday night's Borough Market atrocity. Phillip said he was stunned to be dumped by ...

The invisibility switch

A post-wall woman laments the absence of previously unwanted male attention in her life:
Like so many girls of my generation, I took myself far too seriously and was quick to mistake kindness or generosity for sexism. I would never let a man pay for dinner (or I would never admit to it, at any rate) and I wore ugly shoes I could walk in, rather than have to accept a lift home in high heels. As for winking, thigh-patting and the occasional wolf-whistle — woe betide the man who dared.

Now, aged 50, I realise how silly ...

Mailvox: maintaining rank

RL asks about the way in which old tendencies periodically resurface:
>I've seen a number of Gamma-related posts on AlphaGamePlan lately, and it got me thinking. I used to be very Gamma. Now, partly through following a lot of your advice, and that of some good people in my life, I've turned a lot of that around. Thank you for that. I truly appreciate what you do, and I doubt I'm alone in that gratitude.

These days, I have a good woman in my life. No, not some stunning supermodel.  You and most of your readers would regard her ...

The decline in Delta

There have been many different causes postulated for the decline in American masculinity. My preferred candidate is the decline of male teenage employment:
For Baby Boomers and Generation X, the summer job was a rite of passage. Today's teenagers have other priorities. Teens are likeliest to be working in July, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics that's not seasonally adjusted. In July of last year, 43 percent of 16- to 19-year-olds were either working or looking for a job. That's 10 points lower than in July 2006. In 1988 and 1989, the July labor force participation ...

Context vs structure

A reader finds it difficult to distinguish between the contextual and structural elements of rank in the socio-sexual hierarchy:
How do you account for context in your model? For example, one trait shared by your alpha and gamma archetype is narcissism. When someone gets disrespected in real life they change their response depending on who disrespected them, which tells you something about their relative rank - e.g. Check out Bas Rutten's run in with Brian Urlacher (assuming Rutten is telling it like it happened, old mate seems like the kind of guy who wouldn't let the truth get in the ...

This is what Gamma looks like

And why it is not a socio-sexual rank with which a man should not content himself. The banned and spammed Casher O'Neill was sufficiently triggered by the dc.sunsets Alpha post that he left no less than 13 comments in response. But the first one was the most telling.
Vox does not understand because he has developed intellectual vices that prevent him from understanding and he lacks the inclination to healthy introspection which would allow him to see and correct it. He is, after all, a formal Christian heretic. You might as well ask Arius, Simon Magus, or the Taylor King ...

Why young men prefer porn and vidya

It's not really a great mystery why it's becoming harder and harder to interest young men in women at all, never mind marriage.
A SURVEY of 1,000 women has found that the majority prefer reading a book or knitting to having SEX."

The poll of women aged between 18-50 found that 18 per cent of women would rather do a 'craft activity' like knitting, sewing, painting or card-making instead of romping with their partner.
Asked to pick from a range of 'options' if they were given a spare moment to relax, women chose reading a good book as their ...

The epitome of Alpha

One of the seeming contradictions of Game is that while it is useful to imitate Alpha behavior, it is almost completely useless to listen to anything they have to say. Case in point, our own dc.sunsets. He is, by his own account, a successful man, happily married, with adult children who are happily married to high-quality women. Someone to whom one should listen carefully, right?

Not so much.

You see, dc doesn't actually have any advice to offer beyond bragging about how wonderful his life choices were, how well he has raised his children, and how uniformly great ...

Herd instinct

In case you ever doubted the female tendency to herd. And this illustrates why it is a mistake for men to try to attract women by following their lead. When you do that, you're literally sending her signals that you are her competition, not a prospective romantic interest.

Roosh experiences relationships

It doesn't sound like it went all that well. But the behavior he describes are a pretty standard set, even if there is a pretty steep gradient from the best women to the worst:
Women will hold you to a standard, at the threat of dumping you if you break it, when she herself is not holding that standard. They do the very things they wouldn’t want you doing, and rationalize it by saying they what she’s doing is actually different, when in all likelihood it’s even worse. They remember every thing you said, even from years ago, but ...

Hypergamy and college degrees

As I warned nearly 10 years ago, the combination of hypergamy and the male-female imbalance at the universities is already severely reducing the ability of women to marry up.

Then consider that a portion of those men will prefer to marry women who are not college graduates. After all, most men are relatively indifferent to the educational attainment of their wives. Even if only 30 percent of men marry non-college graduates, that means a woman who graduates from college has ...

Gamma self-destruction

A tech Gamma wonders why he sabotages himself:
I am a mid 20s white male who has been afforded immense privilege in life. I am outwardly extremely confident and able to get what I want. I have dozens of opportunities in front of me, more than 99% of people. Yet instead of being grateful for these opportunities, I feel like I do not deserve them. As a result, I frequently begin an endeavor, see some initial success, but then self destruct just prior to an inflection point, thus destroying any chance of future success.

This happens everywhere. School, athletics, ...
