The 40 year track record of the meritocracy.

It look me a long time, but I’ve also abandoned the egalitarian position. What stands in the way of gender equality is women, not men. Contrary to feminist myths about men not wanting to let go of their “privilege,” in reality men are happy to be let off the hook for being disposable providers and protectors, since it was never actually power to begin with, but a labyrinth of obligations. Obligations are never privileges. Power, as Warren Farrell has argued, is the ability to decide the conditions of our own life. Men have never had that, and they will never have it unless they want to go MGTOW.

Most would happily abandon the role that women force on to them, since successfully adhering to it is exhausting, costly, and risky. Many men, believing the egalitarian bullshit they were spoon fed from birth over the last 30 years, did just that and paid a high price for it. It’s women that will go on imposing that role, and not because of any cultural conditioning, but because those demands are a part of a biologically rooted female heterosexuality.

Women’s expectations have a biological root that no set of cultural norms is going to erase. Women will always be looking for daddy, for male strength, leadership, status, and competence. On an emotional and sexual level, they are only ever responding to male dominance and leadership. Men, having no inherent social or sexual value the way women do, will always have to compete with one another in order to avoid becoming sexually invisible. They will forever be saddled with this burden of performance. Women will always relate to men in an opportunistic fashion, they will always exclude and ignore men who fail to compete, in whatever way, and from whom nothing can be extracted. It has nothing to do with culture.

Every culture will just reinvent its own version of this arrangement, including our feminist dominated one. All feminists have done is replaced an old set of male obligations for new ones. “He for she.” Men’s existence will always be defined and judged by what utility they have to women, regardless if that is being a dutiful provider slave or providing tingles. All that has changed is that now women are forced to be dishonest about what they want and expect from the opposite sex while men are supposed to pretend they don’t know better.

If there is any vision for a future society, it should be one that rebuilds those structures which enable men to go about meeting women’s expectations in a way that is as equitable for men and advantageous for society as possible. What else can be done? What else is possible? What the failure of the sexual revolution proves is that women aren’t capable of equality, nor do they even want it.

State Feminism

It’s nice to know that people in the media are so well informed. I’d say these gossiping tumblr hens who pretend to be journalists are as informed about this election and Sanders’ supporters as they were about GamerGate…

Oh wait… I get it now. Sanders is supposed to be president Shitlord.

Even dopey, hapless, good guy and ally to women everywhere Will Wheaton could recognize the shameless sexism and opportunism of disregarding Sanders supporters as “bros” and interpreting their disagreement as harassment. You mean to tell me other formerly staunch foes of GamerGate who work in the media and who support Sanders haven’t made the connection? Of course they have. But you won’t be reading many Salon or Vice columns about it, if I had to guess. It’s not the narrative anybody wants. It certainly isn’t the one Ms. Filipovic wants, at any rate.


You have to love that, don’t you? Pampered, well-educated white women who apparently choose not to have children since it will cramp their fabulous, unimaginative Sex in the City you-go-gurl! lifestyles now think young women with no future should vote for a corporate shill because girl power and vagina. It’s easy to see how working class women were thrown under the bus all these years by these idiots. Most women can’t afford to be stay-at-home mothers now that a single income no longer supports a family, but I’m sure this looks like “progress” and “equality” to rich white women cloistered in gentrified cities.

Almost 40 years later, they’re still pulling the same con. It never occurs to them that young women can’t afford to have children even if they wanted them or that there’s a diminishing pool of financially solvent men to have them with given the economy that has resulted from the very same economic prescriptions that Clinton’s faction saddled us with. What shameless, disgusting chickenhawks.


Thankfully, young women aren’t this stupid. They recognize that the issue isn’t gender resentment and going along with whatever successful women in magazines and on TV tell tell them, but poverty, lack of opportunity, and a political and economic system in which they increasingly have no personal stake. I’m quite sure enough of them can look at their student loan debt and appreciate that politics is not a fashion statement, no matter who Lena Dunham and Katy Perry say they are voting for. It’s no longer girls vs. boys, but young women vs. plutocracy and economic decline.

And to their credit, the progressive left has largely recognized this bullshit for what it is and supported Sanders. Corey Robin, author of an excellent intellectual history of the right called The Reactionary Mind, wrote a pretty satisfying take-down of one of these clueless liberal corporate feminism pimps in Jacobin which can be found here.

Micheal Brooks of the Majority Report tells it like it is here:

I spend a lot of time on this blog being critical of young women, but this time I’d like to applaud them, since the cheap attempt to make Sanders and his army of imaginary “bros” seem like the GamerGate party doesn’t appear to be working. Maybe there’s hope for us yet.

Has the bourgeois nature of state-feminism ever been more obvious?

Where Am I?
