The manosphere lured me with it’s contempt for women. Yet I was lazy. That contempt stems from knowledge I didn’t have; I want to despise women in a healthy dose, but that privilege has to be earned. To surpass the pretense of contempt, the judgment has to become my own and it has to be one of conviction, not one of wishful thinking. In other words: To be confident, I need to despise the actually despicable, not those I want to despise..
And to harden a belief, you actually have to challenge it..
Are women stupid? Inferior? Different? Are gender roles social constructs? If so, what consequences does that have?
Patriarchy is a lie
The idea is simple. Go out to the street and observe gender differences. Search for proof that women are equal.
It is a curious experience indeed. What do I see when I truly open my eyes?
Since all I can see from afar is body language, my approach can only gauge the confidence I see in men and women.
Having taken away any expectations, my conclusion is eerily surprising to the point it frightens me.
If there is any patriarchy, I do not see it.
I see cheeky and arrogant females with protruded chests. I see weary men. Sometimes a beta schlub following a girl. Sometimes a beta schlub leading a girl by going in front of her, but keenly looking back and observing the direction she is taking. Sometimes men who have all the looks and clothes of an alpha male, but crouched shoulders as they follow their girl – granted, they walk with swag to make it look like they are in control, but they are just marionettes. Other men have those gentlemanly manners all over them and become charming monkeys when women are around; they actually think that women are stupid and cute little things, but you just have to open your eyes to see that this isn’t true.
Two edgy hot chicks brashly and proudly stride beside each other. The hotter one has to strongly move out of my way –. From what I can hear, her momentum makes her stumble into something and I can hear a loud What the Fuck?! from her. I feel a light urge to turn around and show her that I would not hesitate to brush her off the street like a leaf. But why bother.
The same beastie will act cute and harmless next time she needs something. And some idiot will really think he gets something out of getting this spoiled princess what she wants.
I see proud and self-absorbed women and I see obedient men.
Patriarchy is a lie.
What is the question?
Yes, there are a few confident men. And a few men who are confident even when a hot woman is around.
But they are a minority. Women feel attracted to them, yet they also don’t like the power they have. That’s why they call them assholes.
You win a cake if you see an interesting pattern.
A related observation: While men usuallyjust like women do, the small number of times when somebody does not, it is usually a man. Subjectively, I would say that while women generally have a higher display of confidence from appearance, it is only men who ever act confidently in a direct confrontation. Women let their aggressions out through gossip, and .
There are various angles on this. There are exceptions to every rule.
After making a handful of these observations, I concluded that I needed some sort of methodology to answer my question of equality.
Luckily, I had the privilege of enjoying basic instruction in.
This means that I can not get a clear answer unless I pose a clear question.
Yes, and what exactly is the question being asked?
It is a nonsensical question and can not be answered. It is vague and abstract.
The first thing that must expose the stupidity of the question is a simple look at the street: There is such a great amount of intra-gender variation – meaning f.e. variation among women – that differences between genders are a thing that can only be measured empirically.
So yeah, what exactly is it that is being claimed so that it can be verified? That women are equally capable of everything men can do? Okay, what women? All women? But that’s nonsense, because not even all men can do what the best of men do. Most women? What is most? And what is everything a man can do?
What is the fucking question?
And if there is no real question, thus no real answer, how is it that politicians make decisions that can only be based on … well, nothing?
Cancer is an abnormal growth
Hell, and if it were that women were theoretically able to perform at the level of a man in a certain aspect, that still wouldn’t mean that there is any necessity for it. There is no reason why anyone would explicitly need, say, a female engineer or car mechanic, even if a woman were qualified just as much.
If most women choose not to be car mechanics, then there simply are not many female car mechanics. Who cares?
What’s the problem? There is no problem.
Imagine yourself a female body, with your mind. Imagine that men treat you like a dummy. Imagine you start acting like a dummy and hate it. Imagine you are not trusted with a job because you have a female body.
Imagine now that you make the most intuitive assumption of all: That everybody is like you on the inside. That in fact, all women are highly intelligent things living in a prison, kept down by men. By themselves, even!
So I canwith being held to the standards of a group I am perceived to be a part of.
But when I was younger, I thought that everybody was like me. And I perceived myself as the only honest version. Everybody else seemed fake when seen from that perspective. Everybody is the same, yeah, so if I am me and honest, then everybody who is different surely must be fake.
Would I not be a hero if I freed those who are faking? Told them: You do not have to hide who you are. Why are you wearing those masks?
How selfless and noble.
And such a motivated lie validates your own aberrations. Prohibits honest disappointment and sadness.
That noble a cause even justifies making sacrifices. Instead of pursuing your own interests – a career? – you pursue a cause. You become a martyr.
But, funnily, while you see yourself as a hero helping those who do not even yet know they need to be helped, you become a tyrant in everyone’s eyes. And everyone wonders what the fuck is wrong with you.
Like the socialist who empathizes with show weakness.. Like the girl who tells her man to
It is the outlier who here managed to force the majority to live up to her expectations. It is the arrogant smart female outlier who despises other women for not being the way she is.
