Men these days are a sorry lot. Women too. Basically, we’re all just fucked.
A lot has been written on how awful 21st-century American women are, and really, fair points. American women, you are a bunch of fat, vapid, spoiled, selfish, lazy, bitchy, charmless whores. But this is a point that has already been made, many times over.
What’s not so often said is that 21st-century Generation Zero men are pretty fucking pathetic as well.
How many American men are playing video games in their parents’ basement, right now? World of Warcraft has over 2.5 million subscribers in the US, and it’s not the only life-destroyer out there. Maybe you’ve never met a guy who plays video games and watches porn 16 hours a day. But you wouldn’t, would you? Probably a quarter of western millennial men are pasty, pathetic, undateable nerds.
And how many of us are boring as all fucking hell? Of course, no one thinks they’re boring. Deep down, you see, I am a pretty and special unique little snowflake. But ask yourself, average millennial men, what do you really have to offer that differentiates you from everyone else with decent jobs, a couple of friends, and a dick? Are you a competitive athlete? Can you play a musical instrument? Run a business? Kill a man with your bare hands? Let’s say 65% of us fall under the “boring” category.
Now onto the last 10%. These are the rare men who actually have something going for them. Either they have found status through their art, athleticism, wealth, or looks, or they are just among the few smart, lucky, or hardworking men who can attract women with their aura alone.
Of these 10%, the vast majority are pricks. They spend their lives building up the hopes of marginal girls (usually by accident), fucking them, and moving on, tossing discarded broken hearts in their wake. Occasionally they take a girlfriend to cheat on and manipulate for a year or so before moving on, leaving her an empty, hollowed-out shell of a woman.
Then there is the tiny sliver of men who are attractive, yet kind and faithful, i.e. the platonic ideal of romantic comedies and notebook-scribbling girls’ fantasies. They are few, and every day more of them get burned for being a nice guy and switch over to the dark side.
It’s easy to decry the flaws of modern women, but take a look at modern men and it’s hard to avoid concluding they’re a match made in heaven.

So the dating scene sucks balls for women too. What does the contemporary young woman have to look forward to? Fifteen years of pump-and-dumps followed by an empty, loveless marriage to a boring, bitter loser. She will always know that both her and the husband are settling. Eventually, compelled by her biology to revolt, she will destroy her family in divorce, embitter her children, and die cold and alone in a cheap old folks home.
Men’s Rights Activists will say: “Well, fuck her. She brought this on herself.” Well, of course she did! Who told her not to? American culture trained her from childhood to be a whore and chase self-actualization above all other duties. Once she considers leaving her marriage, an unstoppable machine of divorce lawyers, therapists, “supportive” friends, and Murphy-Brown pop culture conspired at every turn to push her through the decision.
If you have sympathy for the male 35-year-old virgin, unable to break free from societal conditioning enough to actually fix his life, why not feel comparable sympathy for a soon-to-be-cougar of the same age, crying herself to sleep because she wasted her life on assholes and a career, when all she ever really wanted was to be a mother? They’ve both been raised by an ideology that compels them towards self-destructive behaviour.
I know I haven’t picked the best audience for white-knighting on behalf of slutty American women. But anyone whose goals include salvaging some form of sexual traditionalism, and western civilization generally, has to understand this: We aren’t going to do it with men alone. We need to understand how feminism shits on women too because a resurgence in natural gender roles, feminine charm and traditional families will require the participation of both sexes.

It’s incorrect and unproductive to blame the gongshow of modern dating solely on women. The world we live in is dying. Loud, masculine, promiscuous women are a symptom of that, just as much as lazy, boring (or) asshole guys are. Can we blame members of either sex for obeying their genetic urges?
Actually, yes we can, and our failure to do so is what got us into this situation in the first place.
Today’s men need to tell women that they have a lot of self-improvement to do before they can expect us to treat them as more than short-term thrills. Sorry ladies, but it’s going to be a long, steep climb out of the abyss if you want men to take you seriously. Head to finishing school (“do you accept 33 year old applicants?”) or just find a good role model. The alternative is death by obsolesence on your 40th birthday. Men with options will always save their respect for women who deserve it.
But here’s the denouement: Once a critical mass of women has re-discovered traditional values (and it will take time – please have a laugh now at the idea of a 38 year old woman with 100+ notches “rediscovering” anything) the game changes. Men will have to, once again, work to earn the respect (and sexual favours) of women. And that’s when western civilization has a fighting chance.
