In simple terms, we proposed that in sex, women are the suppliers and men constitute the demand (Baumeister and Vohs 2004). Hence the anti-democratic, seemingly paradoxical sex ratio findings that Regnerus describes. When women are in the minority, the sexual marketplace conforms to their preferences: committed relationships, widespread virginity, faithful partners, and early marriage. For example, American colleges in the 1950s conformed to that pattern.
In our analysis, women benefit in such circumstances because the demand for their sexuality exceeds the supply. In contrast, when women are the majority, such as on today’s campuses as well as in some ethnic minority communities, things shift toward what men prefer: Plenty of sex without commitment, delayed marriage, extradyadic copulations, and the like.
Sexual marketplaces take the shape they do because nature has biologically built a disadvantage into men: a huge desire for sex that makes men dependent on women. Men’s greater desire puts them at a disadvantage, just as when two parties are negotiating a possible sale or deal, the one who is more eager to make the deal is in a weaker position than the one who is willing to walk away without the deal.
I’d suggest that modern woman’s skankiness, bossiness, self-entitlement and victimhood, far from helping women’s position in society, has diminished and disempowered it in real terms, at the very same time that government tries to ensure that it is empowered through rank discrimination which in turn creates in men deep disrespect and forces them more than the average into an attitude of “Plenty of sex without commitment, delayed marriage, extradyadic copulations, and the like.”
I’d further suggest that this skankiness results in single mothers bringing up children who will never know their real father, resulting in a brood of William S Burrough’s lost boys, which will be just dandy for society, no? And on the female side, the society will be filled with skanks, as they’re far more readily available and require no commitment.
And the whole thing has occurred because women have lost decency, they’ve seized the licence to be skanky, bossy and mindless and all the consequences have accrued, have cascaded from there, including those of the men.
This post is dedicated to the memory of one who was not like that, who was a good role model for women, who realized that quite apart from their bodies, the one abiding gift women bring is decency, harmony and nurturing in the family and therefore the society.
Women’s role is to “bring up” a new generation, to ensure the old values are maintained, to prevent their boys from becoming violent, neanderthal beasts, orcs in other words and to prevent their girls from becoming mindless, self-absorbed bitches with low moral compasses. They also keep their men in line by means of their charms and the judicious usage of the word “no”.
Even as this society is becoming matriarchal in the worst possible way, emphasizing the very worst aspects of women gone wrong, they are refusing to take their place in society in the very way they should. And society is as it is as a result.
In memory of proper women who would not take offence at this post but would realize the author very deeply cares who they are and what they do.
