About

I’m a happily married man living with my sexy wife and our two wonderful kids in the Dallas/Forth Worth area.  I’m very interested in how the post feminist world impacts myself and my family, and am using this blog to explore these kinds of issues.

I hope you enjoy this blog and most of all take a few minutes to comment on any entries which interest you.  Feel free to either agree or disagree, although I find I learn the most from those who disagree with me.

    http://www.oncewed.com/39156/wedding-blog/real-weddings/a-california-artists-wedding/

    I’m disturbed by the implied self-centeredness and the idea that a wedding is perhaps just a prize for the gal to show off.

  8. A CHALLENGE TO THE MANOSPHERE!

    I’m looking for the stories of men over 65. Such stories are an integral part of the collective wisdom of men.

    Men over 65 have incredible experience.

    Men over 65 have deep wisdom.

    If the stories of such older men are not recorded, they will be lost forever.

    I present a challenge to the manosphere.

    Record the personal histories of those quite older men. Men only. Fathers, grandfathers, and uncles are perfect.

    Do this before it’s too late.

    These stories are vital for social history and for spreading wisdom.

    To that end, I have created a part of my blog where these stories can be stored.

    Some ground rules -

    * Only men over 65 years old (Baby boomers need not apply unless there is some true wisdom and not shallow self-indulgence).
    * Appropriate file formats if the story is recorded and linked to (Word, text, .WAV, .MP3, etc.)
    * About another man (not you)
    * Any theme is appropriate – work, politics, history, relationships, social history, anything. This is about the story of older men.
    * If audio or video, the files must be easily heard/viewed. There is nothing worse than garbled audio and difficult to view video. If the file can’t be heard/seen, what’s the point?

    If this project gets enough attention, I will personally find a way to publicize this effort.

    Are you looking to find men for this project? Volunteer.

    Volunteer at an active retirement community or nursing home just to listen to the stories and history of men in their later years. Volunteering is easy, put in a call in to the activities director and tell them you want to write or record the stories of the men. You will be welcomed and appreciated. I strongly recommend this to all men in the manosphere.

    Use the Veterans History Project guidelines – http://www.loc.gov/vets/moreresources.html. There are great resources in the Veterans History Project.

    I have a secondary website where these stories

    Hey Dalrock, I did not want to clutter up one of your most recent posts with this but I have a random question – is Texas a good place to meet young single males? I managed to get accepted at both UTexas Austin and Texas A&M, and they are both offering me full tuition. The thing is, I was also accepted at MIT on half-tuition, but one of the main reasons I was going to graduate school was to meet potential spouses. Feel free to email me if you don’t want to answer it here. I have heard good things and bad things about the spouse market in Texas, just thought I would ask someone with an MRA take on things.

  11. Dalrock says:

    Hi Helvetica,

    Sorry for the delay in responding. I’m not sure I have much insight into the marriage market here, since I am married and met my wife in Colorado before we moved here. Susan Walsh did a post at HUS a while back titled The Importance of Location in Relationship Strategy. She ranked Texas in general, and Austin in specific as a great place for women to find men. She and I both guess that men in Texas are likely more manly (on average) than some other states. YMMV.

    Good luck!

  12. Helvetica says:

    I just went back and read that Susan Walsh thread, looks like Boston is out! That’s ok, I was ambivalent about attending MIT anyway, I think they only let me in for diversity. It’s kind of weird to be an ethnic female, even though my ethnicity isn’t a typical “protected minority” class, you never know if you were a qualified applicant or if they just have a quota.

    Hi Helvetica,

    Funny coincidence. I’ve lived in both places. I went to STEM Central (MIT) in the early 90′s, and lived in Austin in the late 90′s.

    Boston overall is a fantastic college town. At MIT, you’d definitely have a favorable male:female ratio, but they’d be STEM males, which is not the cup of tea for a lot of women. If it is for you, then you’d have a lot of selection, particularly if you have any measure of comfort in being feminine. However, if you like more “alpha” guys, well then it’ll likely be harder, since you’ll be targeting guys in other schools where there are usually more women, and the guys at those other schools don’t tend to prefer STEM women, even if they’re fairly physically attractive. One problem with MIT is the undergrad curriculum is fairly intense (I found grad school easier), so there will likely be less time to socialize than at a lot of other STEM schools. In my case it worked out, since I met my wife through (several layers of indirection) the friends I made while there.

    Austin is a pretty cool town, lots of things to do. There are some STEM males (UT Austin, and a bunch of tech companies), but not as much as in Cambridge. However, there are a lot of attractive women there, so more competition (I was there before learning some Game principles, so didn’t partake much). More religious groups (even in Austin), so if you’re religious, it might be one way to proceed. San Antonio is an hour and half south, and has lots of Latino males, if that floats your boat. Texas A&M is a little isolated in College Station…I knew some friends who’d trek to Austin on the weekends.

    Each place has its own advantages. Good luck!

    Did you see the Logan interview. She talks about her children, one of them is only one! “I felt like I had been given a second chance that I didn’t deserve…because I did that to them. I came so close to leaving them, to abandoning them.”

    Um, you came close to abandoning them? Try again, leaving your baby to work in a foreign country, IS a form of abandonment.

    here’s an article from MSN on June 16, 2011 about women who knew they were marrying the wrong guy before the weidding, and knew it, but went ahead with it anyway:

    http://lifestyle.msn.com/relationships/did-you-marry-the-wrong-guy-1?gt1=32092

    Maybe this is fodder for another post on this subject. I know you’ve posted on this before but thought it would be interesting to read moer.

    One woman said she married her husband, thinking he’d be a good husband and father, but he didn’t make her “heart race”. Another said she married her husband despite misgivings about his secrecy, but went through with it because she was busy “planning her dream wedding”.

    [D: Thanks! It looks like they repackaged the same content as the Marie Clarie article on the same topic that I referenced here. I see this quite a bit. The worst most anti marriage content is echoed all over until they can be fairly certain they have saturated all of womanhood.]

    Dalrock,

    Love your site. Keep up the good work.

    There is an interesting article at Wall Street Journal which perfectly exemplifies the me-ism of Gen-Xers (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303544604576430341393583056.html?mod=WSJ_hp_MIDDLENexttoWhatsNewsTop#articleTabs%3Darticle).

    Be sure to read through the comments. Many of them reinforce many of the points you make. One of the saddest among them is below:

    Michael Trian:
    “I have often said that my parents threw 4 perfectly good children in the trash that day”

    Divorce is a very very selfish act. I am not a child of divorce – my parents were married for 50 years until the death of my mother – but I am a divorced father. I pleaded with my ex to save the marriage, trying to convince her of the effects it will have on our three daughters, and that working and saving the marriage will instill in our girls that perseverance, not quitting, is the correct life path – but to no avail. Rather, she listened to “friends” who convinced her that “it’s all about YOUR (her) happiness”.

    I read somewhere that in over 90% of divorce cases, the spouse wanting the divorce has a lover.

    Sadly, I will feel sorry for whomever chooses to marry my daughters.

    Regards,
    Nathan

  26. Jane Wilder says:

    We have been married over 30 years. We have raised two children. The church deserted us with the handicapped kid–we kept going anyway. Men need to pay attention not to what they think their wives should need, but what they DO need. There would be less women divorcing them. Men have become accustomed to women putting the needs of the men and children first, but they are not willing to do the same. To me this is the problem. As for being in the post feminist era? I disagree and I will agree to be post feminist only in the post patriarchy.

  27. Jane Wilder says:

    Plus our marriage was considered and still is considered “good”. We have had our trials , but now he refuses to put my needs on the map. So I am getting out my own map. Scary yes, but better than slow death. I consider ourselves to be similar to the Gores. We just don’t want anything like the same thing anymore, it is no one’s “fault” and can’t be helped. We have done everything to save this marriage and it isn’t happening.

    Here’s an article on msn.com, called “Fertility Math? Most women flunk, survey finds”

    http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/45262603/ns/today-today_health/

    The money quotes/paragraphs:

    Those numbers are exemplified by a series of high-profile births in older celebrities, including icons such as Kelly Preston (son at 48), Holly Hunter (twins at 47) and Jane Seymour (twins at 44.)

    The famous mamas may or may not disclose whether they’ve used fertility aids, such as IVF or donated eggs, says Schoolcraft. That further contributes to the notion that it’s never too late to have a baby.

    “It sends the message, if she can do it, then Miss Healthy Boring Me, I won’t have any trouble at 41 or 42,” Schoolcraft says.

    The trouble is, such thinking can cheat a woman out of her options, Collura says. It’s one thing to postpone children in order to pursue education or a career, fully knowing it might be more difficult to get pregnant later. It’s another thing to be surprised by infertility.

    “This is not about empowering women and women’s rights,” she says. “This is about science and biology 101.”

  48. Ivan Drago says:

    Dalrock,

    I am just absorbing this merger of the manosphere with Christian masculinity. I agree with many points, but am trying to understand how one mergers the “a-hole-ness” of being alpha with the seemingly (sometimes) beta-ness of being Christ-like.

    I waver between being sometimes alpha and sometimes beta in all kinds of relationships. This appears to be proper, depending on the relationship. However, when I consciously try to be more alpha, I have a tendency to unconsciously become self absorbed. Obviously, this does not bode well. Interestingly, people liked me much more when I went through a major depression and had no self esteem.

    How do you balance having proper, healthy alpha-ness, a servant heart, and a balanced ego? Obviously the answer depends on the person, but what would be good reading?

  49. Dalrock says:

    Ivan Drago

    I would temper this several different ways. Alpha doesn’t have to mean a-hole. It is as much about your frame as anything else. As a man you are expected to have things sorted out and know who you are and where you are going. There is much room in this sense for Christian alphaness. The image which comes immediately to mind is Christ in the temple with the money changers. Being a man who is a leader with solid convictions doesn’t mean shying away from conflict; you just need to make sure your convictions are correct first.

    The other part is that everyone agrees that you need to mix in the right amount of alpha and beta traits. PUAs run hard alpha game because it works especially well on their target audience. Yet even Roissy writes about vulnerability game and contrast game. From what I’ve seen each woman needs a different level of alpha. Not being super alpha when looking for a wife strikes me as being to a man’s advantage for this reason; you tend to automatically sort out the women who need hard alpha game. It also should help you better gauge the real person and not just a woman who is under your spell.

    Lastly, assuming the woman was attracted to you when you weren’t running hard game, you shouldn’t have to play a role you aren’t comfortable with to keep her happy as a wife. I think most men turn too beta not because they secretly want to be that way, but because our culture (including the church) is bombarding them with the message that this is how men who love their wives act. I’ve written about that here.

  50. grego says:

    Hi Dalrock,

    Iif already explored–can you suggest a post/ article on pornography being related to or stemming from negative treatment from the wife (such as nagging, withholding sex), where men were non-viewing/ non-participating UNTIL those situations, and turned to it as a release/ escape?
    If not, could you write one up (yeah, just pull it out of the hat, right?)? I would LOVE to hear your input, and the input of lots of the commenters here.

    “A) men are more sinful than women”

    Boom. The guiding principle of modern women today. This idea has infected every single part of the protestant west and will be its doom. It is pervasive, and unstoppable.

  53. ybm says:

    That article is absolutely side-splitting hilarious:

    “The single men who survive the screening process generally fit one of the following profiles:

    1. The Bible geeks. Quiet, studious men who love to study theological tomes. Or verbal guys who love to teach.
    2. The musical. They play in the band. Or they stand on the front row raising their hands during the music.
    3. The asexual. Guys who are OK with kissing dating (and kissing) goodbye.
    4. The predators. Guys who know there are plenty of desperate young women in church and enjoy trying to get them in bed.
    5. The social misfits. Strange men who come to church because it’s the only place women will smile at them.
    If you’re into these kinds of guys, then the church dating scene isn’t so bad. ”

    Really selling me on that going to church thing pal. Well, if everyone thinks by being in church I’m one of the above 5, f- it I’m staying home and watching football! I wouldn’t be surprised if that article convinced more men to drop out of the church! After all, if you are viewed as a loser at the church, WHY NOT STAY HOME AND BE HAPPY!?!

  54. M. Simon says:

    Why are you missing the obvious? The women’s movement is run for the most part by sexually abused women.

    You want to kill so called “feminism”? Do something about childhood physical and/or sexual abuse of girls.

    And for the men: want to do something about crime and rampant drug use? Do something about childhood physical and/or sexual abuse of boys. Take a look at the wanted posters in your Post Office if you need reference material.

  55. M. Simon says:

    I don’t know why “Christians” can’t see this:

    You want to do something about politics AND crime? Do something about PTSD.

    There is a political party that caters to PTSD sufferers (drug users, the sexually ambivalent, the sexual deviant etc.) the Democrat Party. Now I don’t object to any of those behaviors from a principled stand point. They are adaptations.

    What I do object to is that the Right is doing exactly zero to dry up the wellspring of its opposition. Child abuse.

    Oh. The Right is perfectly happy to fight the symptoms. With negative results (how will the traumatized react to further trauma?). But dry up the well? Not even under the dimmest of consideration.

    ======

    How to gauge what is going on: About 20% of the population is susceptible to long term PTSD. About 10% of the population are alcoholics/drug users.

    ======

    Ah. Well. Americans (let alone Western Civ) are notorious for missing the obvious.

    =====

    And the rape statistics above? Multiply that by 20 years. Then fudge for the number of women who get raped more than once. Assume by a different perp. The numbers don’t look near as good.

    Here is a good place to start for further reading material:

    I haven’t read it, but it has to do with correlation between premarital sexual history and risks of divorce. Looks like a followup on the one he previously fisked.

    Dalrock,

    Following on from your mention in the Bettina Arndt article in the SMH, Melbourne Reverend Father Tony Kerin, has come out and said women need to be less choosy in marriage.

    http://www.heraldsun.com.au/ipad/catholic-church-says-single-women-are-being-too-fussy/story-fn6bfm6w-1226348186291

    “Are women getting too choosy? I’d say yes,” said Father Kerin, speaking on behalf of the archdiocese. “I think many are setting aside their aspirations for later, but by the time they get around to it, they’ve missed their chance.

    “In trying to have it all, they end up missing out.”

    Prominent Australian demographer Bernard Salt raises the following statistics which dance around the elephant in the room, hypergamy:

    “Demographer Bernard Salt calculated there are 1.3 million women aged 25-34.

    But of the 1.343 million men in the same age bracket, only 86,000 single, heterosexual, well-off, young men were available after excluding those who were already married (485,000), in a de facto relationship (185,000), gay (7000), a single parent (12,000) or earning less than $60,000 a year.”

  67. Tony goff says:

    Long time reader, I’m a higher functioning beta in a reasonably stable marriage, attempting to learn game to possibly improve my relationship.
    Divorce was a very real possibility as recently as 6 years ago, due to my spouse’s escalations during disagreements.
    The drama has largely gone away, but I still find myself ruminating how badly I would have treated by the divorce industry.
    I identify as a fiscal and moral conservative, but I see the mainstreaming of same sex marriage as a way of removing the bias against men.
    That is: how would the courts behave, when it wasn’t obvious, based upon gender, who was to be disposessed and enslaved as a result of divorce?
    Respectfully,
    Tony goff

    Hey Darlock, I’m fairly new to the manosphere so I am not sure if what I am about to suggest already exists out there somewhere. In the comments to your post about Janine Turner, Van Rooinek wrote “Manosphere Prime Directive: Don’t trust what women say, watch what they DO.”, which led me ask are there really manoshphere prime directive written down, and if not, why not. I think it is important to not just debate among ourselves, but to also export our ideas in a readily digestible form to the general public, especially young men. A set of prime directive would be a good starting point and a good reference tool when engaging the mass media. My idea is for a site like yours (not necessarily yours if you are not interested) to start a collaborative effort among its readers to develop such a prime directive. To get the ball rolling, I wrote down some of what I’ve learnt since entering the manosphere in order of importance.

    The modern young man’s guide to coexisting with the modern young woman (Manosphere Prime Directives)

    1. Her number one priority above all else (including children and faith), is her own happiness and wellbeing

    2. As a man you have to know when to tell a her no.

    3. Don’t pay attention to what she says, pay attention to what she does

    4. Don’t let your eyes deceive you, she is rarely what she seems.

    5. She is in it to win it, so you had better be too.

    6. Your level of trust in her should never exceed her level of investment in you.

    7. Beware of her rationalization hamster.

    8. Nice guys (beta males) do finish last (to ride the carousel), and alone (divorced), and broke
    (paying child support and/or alimony).

    9. Its not all your fault, despite what she and everyone else says.

    10. Don’t trust alpha males.

    11. Beware of good men (white knights) who defend her honor, especially if they are standing
    behind you.

    12. There are still a few good women out there. If you are lucky enough to find one: love her,
    respect her, honor her, cherish her and please lead her.

    This is just a starting point and not etched in stone. Tell me what you think. Is such a project something that you or anyone else would be willing to get behind and develop?

    Dalrock, I have been a reader of your blog for about two days now. You are a God-send for my unplugging. I have been reading The Rational Male and other androsphere sites for over a month now and have been working at unplugging. Your moral outlook on these issues is appreciated. While reading Rollo I was confronted by two things – the amorality of much of what he suggests (note I did not say ‘immorality’) and second, how correct he was. This gave me a minor crisis of faith, as it were. Finding your writings has helped me regain my focus and will certainly make the red pill more easy to swallow.

    Hi Dalrock. I’ve been reading your blog for a few months now, and really enjoy it, despite the fact I am a late 30s former carousel rider (and therefore should be mortally insulted according to my similarly situated friends, married and single). I also read “feminist” websites (although I find it increasingly more difficult), and found a discussion and article that horrified me, even as a never-married childless woman. The gist of the discussion and article was that women who choose to be stay at home mothers/ wives for whatever reason are betraying ALL other women and making real equality impossible. I was wondering if you’d take a look and comment, although I know you focus more on marriage. http://www.feministe.us/blog/archives/2012/06/20/feminism-housewifery/

    Hi there. I stumbled onto the “manoshpere” because I have been looking for anyone else in the friggin worl who has noticed the way men (mostly dads and husbands) are portrayed on TV sitcoms and commercials. I have been reading these sites almost constantly for 3 days. Not sure I am on board with the whole Alpha/Beta/Game thing. Very refreshing stuff, though. All of it.

    [D: Thank you. Welcome.]

  75. an observer says:

    Bernard Salt is a populist demographer who makes a living writing books, presenting and consulting. Whilst he has made some correct forecasts (the sea change phenomena comes to mind), he is no mra.

    He interprets observations from a betaised, feminist mindset. He is incapable of perceiving wrongheaded female sexuality ad a major cause of family breakdown, and prolonged singleness.

    http://mobile.news.com.au/national/middle-aged-men-have-hotness-delusion-syndrome/story-e6frfkvr-1226066040089

    Here is an example of ignoring the hypergamy in the room. This is despite acknowledging that younger women overestimate their attractiveness, or smv. No, he always focusses on mens faults, alleging they are the picky ones.

    So near, yet so far from the truth.

  76. an observer says:

    I will add that under a patriarchy, where the female sexual instinct is moderated, every beta usually gets a wife, not a divorce. Hence, there would be far fewer single, middle aged men for Salt to villify.

    Of course, he would also be selling far fewer books.

  77. Tricket says:

    Dalrock,

    I’ve been reading your blog for a few months now (mostly as a silent reader). I’ve got a question.

    Why are women willing to quote word for word that men are to “love their wife as Christ loved the church” but are never willing to say word for word what the Bible calls them to do? I might’ve missed it, but not once have I seen anyone mention word for word what the Bible call’s a wife to do and I’ve never seen a woman quote it.

    So basically, why is it alright to remind men that they should “love their wives as Christ loved the church” but not to remind women that they are to “submit herself to her husband as she does to the Lord.“? Did feminism go and edit that part of the Bible some how and my copy was missed?

    Hi,

    I was wondering if you might consider doing a brief analysis of one of the key subplots of the movie ‘Savages’ – that of the two men and a woman in a “polyamorous” relationship, as well as sex scenes from the movie involving them, and their implication in broader pop-culture and contemporary society at large. My suspicions are that we may see a growing, yet probably minor, trend of women (and men) attempting these sorts of relationships – I have literally seen postings by females in the various Craigslist personals sections looking for this type of thing…

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/20/oliver-stone-savages-war-on-drugs_n_1613496.html

    Oliver Stones criticism of people being too “puritanical” (see the link for the quote) which in turn he felt impeded him from going with full-graphic sex scenes I find particularly troublesome…He is just another member of the artist and intellectual class who have NO understanding of how what they put out impacts their audiences.

    There is just something so utterly despicable about a women engaged in sex with two men at the same time. It is like sexual-murder or spiritual-murder – there really is just no coming back from it.

    I recall a time when I met a girl who I was quite fond of and she confided in me that she had done such a thing. Never have I been so turned off of someone so fast. I think I recall feeling sick to my stomach and not being able to put it out of my mind…as a little experiment I did a small survey asking men what they thought of this (and asking them if they would date a girl who had done such a thing) and also asking women what they thought…you can guess what kind of response I got. The men – “Hell No!” The Women – “Don’t be so judgmental. Your so conservative. Who cares, if she loves you that’s all that matters”. The fact that I was even considering dating her after recoiling in such horror shows those were definitely days when I was much more “beta” – I wouldn’t even consider dating a girl who had done such a thing now. Over the past decade I have spent a lot of time repressing natural feelings of revulsion (like knowing of a girl who got tag-teamed) and trying to rationalize why I was feeling them (“oh, I have just been culturally-conditioned to react like that). Well, no more – I am going to let myself be free to feel revulsion at anything my instinct tells me is repulsive.

    Also…see (or read the lyrics) the Britney Spears song “3″ …It’s things like this that really make me feel as if we are hitting an end-point in sexual morals…

    Hello, Mr. Dalrock, from Eastern EuropeanUnion

    I’ve been lurking here for many months now. I have some breaking news you might find interesting. It seems Russia just launched a nuclear attack against (let me call it this way) United Hamsters of America.

    One day before Madonna’s “gay-friendly” concert in St. Petersburg, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin in a post on Twitter late Wednesday, said that

    “every former w. who has aged wants to give lectures about morals, especially during tours and gigs” abroad.”

    Western press went hamster-bananas over this “insult”. But today DPM Rogozin cleverly pointed out that name “Madonna” was never mentioned in the tweet, and letter “w.” in Russian language can also signify “Goddess” or “Ballerina”. I think this situation could be used in english language courses as a perfect illustration of the phrase “Give them enough rope and they will hang themselves”.

    As for our local prominent educated feminists, they are running in circles like headless chicken torn between:
    a) Their tolerance for homosexuals ( learned from Hollywood and EU agenda)
    b) Their hate for capitalist Americans (learned in communist schools of their youth)
    c) Their despise against all types of Christian ethics (learned from both sources cited above)
    d) Their wet-panties for Russians (our most probable new alpha-masters after EU collapse)

    As bad as things look here, economy-wise, it is encouraging to see mean women outliving their public dignity. Sic semper!

  81. MV, and there is also the Pussy Riot trial. Russia does not bend over for feminism like America.

  82. Jeffrey says:

    Can you point me in the direction of ideas on how to raise smart, charming, pure, and wise young women? My oldest girl is 10.

  83. Binks Webelf says:

    (1) Assume that the culture, TV, and schools are teaching them irresponsible hyper-individualism, consequence-free sex, soft socialism, and selfishness… and that ‘modern’ ladies spend 18-30 in party/ carousel mode, then maybe babies eventually. Feminism is mind, soul, and body-poison. If they are not reading for pleasure, get them on that track, and put good books in their way.

    (2) The presence of a father in a child’s life– especially for daughters– is a direct indicator of likely drug-use, premature intimacy, proper self-confidence, and all the rest. Check it out online. Thus, from 10-16 is a second childhood in a sense, except growing & maturing into adulthood. I have twin boys: I don’t subscribe to the “teen” idea.. you’re a kid, young adult, adult, period. If you yourself are a good, smart, charming, pure and wise dad, she will model that, and seek it in a possible mate.

    (3) Dating-culture is fornication-culture. Others on this blog may have more wisdom about girls & dating. Just remember– the pill is a class-1 carcinogen, and does not prevent embryos, or spontaneous abortion– just implantation. The pill IS an abortion-pill.

    (4) Teach your daughter self-defence, how to use, clean, and defend herself with weapons (including guns), first-aid, and how to help others & herself. This is a dangerous world; you don’t know where she may end up living, and you never know when emergencies come up. Raise a protective sheepdog, not a wolf, or a sheep.

    (5) Talk to parents you respect about their young adults and adult children– what went right, wrong, etc. Here’s one dad’s take on raising boys that feminists will hate– http://townhall.com/columnists/douggiles/2006/03/04/raising_boys_that__feminists_will_hate/page/full/

  85. Regarding the comment about the post-WW II change in Soviet men no longer being relevant, I see certain parallels to the current state of the Inner-City “ghetto” so-called Black Community.
    Could you please give me a lead or two so that I could continue some personal research here – I contribute now-and-then to an interracial dating/marriage site (Beyond Black & White), and this issue affecting the so-called ‘Black Community’ seems vital to this group … and to the young black women trying to FLEE from the strictures of the ‘Black Community’..

  86. Rogerio Canales says:

    Hello Darlock, I discovered the manosphere, about a week ago. I find your blog specially appealing because of your Christian perspective. I was already familiar with some of the “red pill” ideas because of a friend of mine, and reading a few PUA’s forums. I have been in walking on the ledge between giving up and becoming a player, and keeping my faith and values. So far I have not gone down but sometimes it is very tempting as it is almost impossible to find Christian women where I live. I grew up in a very “Churchian” environment, including homeschooling that I feel was great in almost every respect, but it didn’t teach me how to be a man. Now I live in Europe and the availability of truly Christian women is almost zero. I attend a Reformed church in the country I live, which I think is better than the Evangelical kind of church I grew up in, however there are absolutely zero women in my age range there (I’m 26, there is no single girl between 20 and 30). I think it has to do with the fact you state that some churches preach what women want to hear so they prefer to stay there instead of facing the truth. I have only met one decent (non slutty) Christian girl in the three years that I’ve been here (and one strictly Catholic from outside Europe). You post very interesting material on marriage and the path women have chosen for this age. What I can’t seem to find is advice on how to find a girl willing to live by the rules of Marriage 1.0 (even the one Christian girl I know would get a bit shocked at the beginning with these concepts). So I have some questions for you. Do you think it is still possible to find someone willing to abide by those rules, or do you think that men from now on have to live in a Marriage 2.0 mentality? If there are still women willing to live under the Marriage 1.0 rules, how can do you attract them (or one) and differentiate them from the others? I have a problem with the concept of alpha as put in other websites, because even though it has been only one week, whenever I do “alpha” actions I feel a bit of an asshole, or a bit taken back when I make a mistake. I think it has to do with my up-bribing and how I was taught I should behave. I am having a bit of an internal conflict as I swallow the red pill. So my final question is, what is the line between being a manly man as God intended us to be, and becoming an irrespectful egoist that only thinks about himself? I hope you can answer my questions either in your blog or through e-mail.

    What to do now? I have been reading these websites for several months. I started simply because I was sick and tired and did a search “why are men portrayed as idiots or evil in every commercial, movie and sitcom ever made since 1987?” I think the red pill is about half-way down now, but its consequences are unbearable. This site is the one that resonates with me the most, so I will ask this question here. I am anonymous, because I have a lot to lose.

    I am in my 40s and an active duty Officer in the US Army. I am a licensed medical provider. I have been married for 5 years to a woman who had a 10 year old when I married her. We now have a 3.5 year old, and one on the way. I possible, please spare me the “alpha/beta” stuff, as I am working through what I think about that, and where I fit in to it. I absolutely love my children, my career, my big house, my church. She has become the most miserable person I know. Constantly on eggshells are ALL OF US wondering what is going to set her off next. None of us (me, my step son, and my 3 year old) absolutely cannot predict what is going to make her upset next. I can sense her hand on that detonator. There is part of me that doesn’t care, but after spending a year in Afghanistan, I know it would break my heart to have my access to my children reduced to almost nothing. That deployment almost killed me. With bonuses and incentive pay for being a doctor, I make 4 times what my wife does, and the truth is, we could probably make it without hers (with minor adjustments.) Your post about the detonator made me think–which of those three men am I, and which should I try to be? As I said, this manosphere site has the deepest thinkers on it–the posts and the comments. My question–what do I do now? Thank you.

    Anon Sept 17:

    Need more info.

    1. Tell us more about her. How old is she? Widowed/divorced? How is your/her relationship with her ex husband? Is he present in your stepson’s life?
    2. How much of this is due to her being hormonal because of pregnancy?
    3. When did all this start? Has it always been like this or is it just since she got pregnant?
    4. When did you get back from deployment and how much time passed between your return and her pregnancy?
    5. How much dominance do you use in your everyday life together? Are you the final authority on what happens in your life and marriage? Do you expect submission and call her on her rebellion? Do you insist on being treated with respect in public and private, and do you call her on it when she steps out of line?

    Re the “detonator” post: You need to be No. 3, the resigned, happy patriarch.

  89. Anonymous says:

    These are excellent questions.

    1. She is 39. Never married, so if you do the math, she was 34 when I married her, and the relationship that produced her son was very difficult for me to get to the bottom of. The more I learn about it, the more disgusted I am with the way she cut him out of the picture as soon as she was angry. Bio dad has married and has 2 kids, roughly the same age as mine. He lives on the other side of the country, and is not particularly involved. Although–and this cannot be understated–my dealings with him have been that he is a fair, honest, decent guy. He appears to be less involved in my step sons life because dealing with my wife over the slightest inconvenience (like plane trip arrangements) is so painful, so difficult, so absolutely impossible, it is not worth it to him.
    2-3. My assessment is, not very much. She is always like this, pregnant or not. When I write of what makes it miserable, think jealousy–I can’t have any hobbies, interests, etc outside of the marriage because she is competition with them–no matter how innocuous (hunting with my step son, being in the choir at church, etc.)
    4. Got back from deployment in May, she was pregnant within a month. This was acutally planned, so I own it.
    5. I use some, but it’s mostly passive aggresive–a little like guy #3. When it gets really obnoxious, I just walk outside and start working on my truck, my yard, etc. I can’t help but think that somewhere down deep inside, at some point she realizes what an irrational idiot she is being and calms down–the part that DRIVES ME CRAZY is her lack of articulating any kind of accountability for it–you know, like “sorry I exploded in a fit of rage (in front of the children no less) over having lost my coffee maker.” That would go A LONG WAY with me, because I am, after all, a man, and accountability is abig one for me.

    A few suggestions.

    she’s 39. How old are you? You have any prior marriages/kids?

    1. Go over to Married Man Sex Life (marriedmansexlife.com). That’s Athol Kay’s place. He has great suggestions. You might email him and get some tips for your personal situation.

    2. My mother was like this. Hair trigger sensitivity to anything. The slightest problems triggered massive overreactions, but only sometimes. When it gets all the way down to it, it’s a control thing. What a woman like this really wants is for her husband to take control so she will not have to.

    3. I think you might be able to help this situation through having a good strong frame, and never playing into her emotional outbursts and overreactions. I do this sometimes with my wife.
    “Let me know when you’re ready to play nice. Until then I’ll be downstairs.” Then when she talks to me, it’s “Are you ready to be nice to me now?” And expect an apology, and don’t end the conversation until you get one. In the rare occasions when she is disrespectful or overly, irrationally emotional on the phone, I tell her to calm down, call me back when she can talk calmly and respectfully, and then I hang up. I just won’t put up with being disrespected.

    4. Does she have any health problems? Diabetes (fluctuating sugars can really play havoc with a woman’s emotions)? Ever had any mental health issues?

    5. Get all the way to the bottom of this situation with your stepson’s bio-dad. Sounds like you don’t know the whole story. You say you’re disgusted with how she cut him out of her life. I know whereof you speak.

    I suspect at least part of what’s going on here is that you are finding out more and more about what your wife did and you’re more than a little frightened she could (and would) do it to you. Reading around these parts has shone a brand new light on her, her past, and women in general for you, and it scares the hell out of you.

    Now that you know some things you didn’t know before, keep in mind that women are sinful, imperfect, flawed creatures just like we men are. She needs to know you are in control. Frame is crucial. Understanding hypergamy is a close second.

  91. Cane Caldo says:

    I will say that I have very different ideas than many of the men here; including to some extent Dalrock.

    My first suggestion would be to read a book called “Family Shepherds”, by Voddie Baucham.

    He has a lot of clips and sermons on YouTube, and at sermonaudio.com

    http://www.sermonaudio.com/source_detail.asp?sourceid=voddiebaucham

    My second suggestion is to find a sympathetic friend–in the flesh. It is my opinion that we can’t get the best most complete information, and then prescribe the perfect medicine. Exploratory surgery can become surgical dissection pretty quickly; and end up harming or killing the patient it pretends to want to save. What we often need, rather, is a good nurse. I’m not in medicine, but I’ve spent a lot of time in hospitals. Hopefully my metaphor makes sense.

    In no way do I mean to discourage you from posting, but just to know what is possible, and what is not.

    If you want to email me, I’m at cane(dot)caldo(at)gmail(dot)com.

  92. Some Guy says:

    @Anonomous –

    I have a very similar experience to yours.

    This is what I’m doing:

    1) If an issue comes up, I always say what I *feel* about it. (A lot of men seem to be programmed to pretend to have certain feelings to make their wife happy or to avoid conflict. I have no idea why guys suck up like this all the time… and I’m embarrassed at how bad I used to be.)
    2) I can’t *make* her do anything, really… but neither can she make me do something I’ve decided not to do. My wife will try to bully me and use every emotional weapon she can find until I cave in. She will has even hit me with stuff. Every time she starts up, I ask her point blank if she is going to do her usual thing. *Sometimes* she is shamed into backing down. So remember… her own excesses CAN be used against her… but you must have a mind blowing amount of self control to get to that point.
    3) All of this gets back to frame. In my wife’s view, if she is unhappy… it’s my fault. If a woman does something wrong… it’s a guys fault. If a family breaks down… the husband didn’t lead right. Church, TV, and Facebook constantly program her this way. Talking through these things, I see that she has no concept of the New Testament requiring *anything* from her in marriage if she doesn’t “feel” it. And *that* kind of person is constantly judging me for not being “Christian” enough…?! I view every fight as an opportunity to call her on this insanity.

    I live with a terrorist. I have not won the war by any means, but I am at least resisting and fighting. It is wearying. BUT… compared to my previous policy of submission and appeasement… I deal with far less bullshit now. I do not know if this will ultimately save my marriage… but I can say that (pre red-pill) the usual counseling and marriage book thing only multiplied her resentment toward me. Indeed… looking outside the relationship for an authority to sort us out is futile if she is unable to show the slightest respect to me. (Never mind respect… the New Testament calls her to treat her *enemies* better than how she treats me.)

    Sometimes I pity her because it is clear that she is a child that has never been held accountable for anything. My calling and “ministry” is to be the only voice in her life that can point her toward these basic truths that no preacher would dare address….

  93. Anonymous says:

    I’m 41. I was married for 8 years the first time, in the “perfect” “Christian” marriage to my pre-school (no shit) sweetheart. Thank God we had no children. The way that relationship ended was as bizarre to me now as it was when it first happened 12 years ago. To have THAT girl–you know the one–with the Christian parents, the PhD, the “conservative” values be the one who cheats and blames me for it has been a process for me ever since. I had several relationships in between, and the truth is, even this one, I could walk away from with no real pain (except for the part about my kids–and I think of my step son as mine).

(In other words, I think I could learn “game” pretty easily, and have a lifetime of no strings attached sex until the day I die and not really be bothered by it.)

    Cane is right that you need a good sympathetic friend to talk to in the flesh. There’s a lot more going on here than can possibly be addressed in a series of comments on a public blog.

    The friend you select to discuss these things with should be a man.

    I don’t mean to pick at fresh wounds, but: Did she do you wrong, or did she benefit you? If a man can bench-press his bodyweight of 200 pounds, and a woman cuts off his legs, do we describe his new condition of benching well over his weight as an increase in strength?

    Viewing the problem this way leads to the necessary conclusion that the best way to inoculate most men against bad women is to have them marry a harlot. The good news is we don’t each have to have our own slut: by definition we can share. This is the practice of good Game. In this future, we’re all PUAs.

    Dalrock,

    I’ve been aware of the manosphere off and on for a few years now and in the last six months have been reading a lot. Especially the last week. with a few nights up until 3am reading yours and other’s blogs. If you’re interested, I’d like to write something about my experiences as a man who got married at 22, well below the average age to get married for man these days.

  98. I just stumbled on this book, but apparently it came out a few years ago. It’s written from the monstrously selfish perspective of a woman who denies her husband sex: http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2007/03/not-tonight-dear/305643/1/

    It’s ridiculous that it got any positive press at all.

  99. Alshia says:

    @vitabenedicta:

    It’s a no brainer that men have higher sex drives than women. Even the evolutionary sciences have an explanation for that long before some ‘low libido’ woman decides to write about it. Men propagate, women select; that’s the reason in a nutshell.

    But to allude to the possibility that most women hardly ever want sex, I find that unbelieveable. I’d say that it’s normal for women to want it at least one to three times a week. WITH someone she’s actually attracted to. Which she probably isn’t (Sex on HER terms?? Hah.)

    “If you have sex when you don’t desire it, physically desire it, you are going to feel used.”

    If I work at the office from 9 to 5 when I don’t feel like it, I’m going to feel used. Let’s face it, marriage isn’t all fruitcakes and roses. But so is everything else. We gotta do what we don’t like, sometimes.

    “…just do it enough times, and you’re going to build a resentment that’s slowly going to take over the relationship…”

    If you actually married someone you’re attracted to, you wouldn’t build a resentment towards him needing sex. You’d be glad to do him a favor.

    Would a man who loves his job resent it?

  103. Can’t contact you privately but stumbled across a recent article on marriage situation in Australia.

  104. S. Chan says:

    Following are some extracts from “The Scarlet Manifesto“, Huffington Post (13 October 2012).

    In my work and in my life, I had been hearing more from women who were both having extramarital affairs and actively seeking them out. While they weren’t necessarily proud of their actions, neither were they ashamed. Unlike men, whose cheating often follows an impulse, these women had considered their affairs. They had reasons for them.

    In a study published last year in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, researchers at the Kinsey Institute found that it’s no longer true that men cheat far more often than women do. In fact, they found that women and men cheat at about the same rate — though, yes, for different reasons. Women tended to cheat because they were unhappy in a relationship or felt their partner didn’t hold similar sexual beliefs. For men, the biggest factor was sexual excitement. That is, women are far choosier about why, and with whom, they cheat.

    Women are becoming more confident about making choices. … Is this a good thing? It sure is. For these women, marriage is important, but it doesn’t define them. If it doesn’t last, they won’t be destroyed. For a woman, the ability to realize that she’s not happy — and she’s going to do something about it, rather than be passive and accept whatever comes — is empowering.

    Choices can’t be impulsive or made haphazardly; they need to come out of who you are and what you desire and how you aim to conduct your life.

    Simply put, I, as a veteran of the feminist-inspired marriage/divorce wars, happened to fall in love with and marry a very dark-skinned African-American woman … whose values, attitudes and loyalties are at a total opposition to the current white-woman ‘marriage-detonation for cash and prizes.’

    Hey Dalrock,

    Any thoughts on this:

    http://www.montrealgazette.com/touch/story.html?id=7874112

    It seems that couples in Quebec are now free from the ‘family law’ industry and can frame their own mutual commitments in accordance only with their own personal values.

    Here’s the point I’m getting at. If a couple marry at a religious ceremony in Montreal (in the eyes of God only – they don’t sign the state or ‘civil marriage’ documents) and then set out in a separate legal document (what the legal system calls a ‘cohabitation agreement’) their freely chosen rights and responsibilities, what is your opinion on what that document should contain? To phrase the question differently – what would you agree to, Dalrock? And what would you expect in return?

    If that doesn’t work the text is something like: “we need our daughters to know the difference between a man who flatters her vs compliments her, ”

    “A man who spends money on her vs invests in her” etc etc then ends with “and we need to teach our sons to be this type of man.”

    David J.:

    I read the piece at WOrld. Just looks like more of the same from the secular world, only this time with a Christian twang to it: “Young Christian women are out there setting the world on fire, working and ministering and doin’ great with their sistahs! But where’s the menz? Oh yeah, they’re in mom’s basement, playing video games and eating Cheetos and letting mom do the laundry. They should be out there working and getting ready to chain themselves to a 9-to-5 and help her take care of babies! They should be at the church, meeting and dating and marrying the young christian women!”

    But what’s missing is that these young men were sold a bill of goods. They’re complaining that these men aren’t out their busting their humps at a job. But that’s pretty hard when the best job you can find is slinging coffee at starbucks. You can’t exactly give a woman a house and picket fence on that salary.

    They’re complaining that these men aren’t in church. But there’s NOTHING for men in churchianity. It’s emasculating from top to bottom. They come to church and are browbeaten about how predatory and lustful and bad and evil they are.

    The young Christian women are complaining that there aren’t any good young Christian men. Um, ladies, you’ve made it VERY clear that you don’t want them. You don’t want to be friends with them, you don’t want to date them, you don’t want to marry them, you don’t want to have sex with them. You will, however, very willingly date and have sex with Harley McBadboy and F*ckbuddy Rockbanddrummer. You complain these Christian men aren’t getting jobs and working. Why should they? What incentive is in it for them? To impress a girl?

    John Hagee is big, loud, and I am quite certain that he is not afraid to get after anyone. He would be the guy preaching to Nero when they lit the cross he was on.

  138. Josh says:

    I have been reading this site and several others for a while and I agree largely with what is said. Apparently, it has sunk in more than I thought. Recently, while talking about an entirely different topic, marriage and the behaviors of husbands/wives was brought up. Even on a site which I usually enjoy, I was told emotionally how terrible and disturbing my views were (see later comments):
    http://www.patheos.com/blogs/jesuscreed/2013/03/18/rob-bell-and-marriage-equality

    Granted, I didn’t have a chance to edit or proofread anything on the site so I may have been able to phrase things better, but it is interesting to me that feminism is so engrained in modern Christians that to oppose it is seen as opposing Christianity. Sad indeed.

    Dalrock: Are you familiar with the book “The Walk-Out Woman”? http://www.amazon.com/Walk-Out-Woman-Heart-Empty-Dreams/dp/1590522672. From the description and reviews, it sounds like it acknowledges to some extent the existence of frivolous divorces and at least some of the damage they cause. It was pretty clear from the excerpts available on Amazon that the authors were deliberately being “gentle” in their approach; my impression was that they themselves recognized how wrong and damaging frivolous divorces are and intended to be persuading Christian women to reconsider, but their very gentleness leaves “loopholes” that blinded women — like my ex-wife — will seize on to justify the frivolous divorce anyway.) I’m curious whether the book (published in 2004) had any success or received any blowback from Christian feminists.

  151. anonymous says:

    Last night I wokeup about 1:45 AM. and in the clarity of the late night, somehow a whole lot of Manospherian wisdom collapsed into 2 simple sentences:

    Truth #1. Women, throughout all history, have harbored a deep genetic impulse to marry, or mate with, men of higher status. (“Hypergamy”)

    Truth #2 Feminism, throughout the modern West, has lowered the relative social and economic status of men.

    The collision of these 2 facts, explains most of what’s wrong with our society.

    Men of high socioeconomic status — the UC and UMC — can still attract wives and, for the most part, successfully create normal 2 parent families.

    Raw, wild forms of masculinity — athleticism, rock-stardom, outright criminality — are immune to the solvent of feminism. These men can attract whatever women they wish, either for marriage or a de facto harem.

    But a man who makes a modest income at an honest but low-status job, no longer gets status points for simply being a good man. Fifty years ago, he’d be married with kids; today he’s “despised and rejected of women, a man of sorrows, accused as a creep.”

  152. Stephanie says:

    Dear Dalrock:

    I’ve read your website and here’s my thoughts, especially since you have such a huge readership:

    Please caution men that they also help create the negatives about women they complain about in the manosphere. Ask your followers to recall the times they didn’t act responsibly and ethically towards women OR didn’t police the inappropriate actions of their fellow man? Many will lie, minimize and deflect their part.

    Ask how many good women have been ruined by unscrupulous men who when presented with a good woman (read: honest, thoughtful and, gasp, nice), they are skeptical and treat her with the same “game” they use on tramps. Instead of valuing a good girl and doing the manly thing by NOT dating or leading her on, some get a thrill out of ruining a good one. Ask if any of the angry self-righteous divorced men were physically/ mentally abusive or cheated on their family. (Yes, cheating involves the family when you are married.) Men don’t “feel” cheating the same as women unless they’ve been cheated on. How would you react if someone who outweighs you by 100 pounds and is almost a foot taller than you is threatening towards you or your children? Where’s the men to handle this problem?

    Not only that, PUA guys and other player types tell good women they are “uptight”, a prude or no fun because they don’t want to slut around and get wasted. Good women are human too, not some alimony monster waiting to happen. Even non-religious girls want to find a good man to marry, love, respect and nuture, but the dating climate rewards the tramps and players. So men are just as culpable of fostering society’s sickness.

    In some relationships I’ve seen, men will knowingly WASTE women’s time! They will make promises and string her along because he’s not mature, or man enough to own up to not being marriage ready, capable or she’s not the one. Manosphere sites encourage this attitude by giving guys the false idea that they’ll be virile, desireable and productive enough to get a 25 year old wife at 50!

    Men have a marriage window too, and it’s very selfish to consume his best, most productive and attractive years with tramps. Meanwhile, now he’s older, less active and risking an autistic child due to advanced reproductive age and more set in his ways. Men should also objectively look at their market value. A man 3, of means, character and charm, is totally different than a man 3 who’s poor and socially awkward. Yet, the unfortunate man 3 totally believes he’s entitled to an younger, fit charming woman 7/8 and angrily gets affirmation from the manosphere that women are shallow tramps when they aren’t interested. Sigh…

    Men will even selfishly “trap” women with a pregnancy (common with black or latino men) if she’s serious about leaving him due to no marriage intention. It’s not always the women who trap! Trapping is especially harmful; some women don’t do abortion and OOW reduces her marriage prospects. So where are the men who traditionally enforced the honor of his female relatives and friends when these circustances happen?

    I’m not saying every woman is a victim…heavens NO! I’ve known girls who were just as “unladylike” and conniving as some of your posts suggest. And yes, women have a duty to protect their reputation against slander and their bodies against being used. But men, as they are representing themselves in the manosphere, also have a duty to be MEN (eg. honesty, leadership, ethical and logical) and to police the bad behavior of their fellow man – brother, friend, cousin, co-worker – not to just pat them on the back when they’ve slutted out some other guy’s daughter. Only a MAN can truly affect another man and I’ve witnessed the positive effects of men holding other men responsible to be good men.

  155. @Stephanie:
    You are absolutely correct in the content of what you assert. I’ve been reading here for a few short months and have learned much and also share your respect of Dalrock, whoever he is. I’m 49 years of age and wish I could take back some things I have done in the past, but not anything abusive. I would never get a gal pregnant and not take responsibility; that is a disgusting sin in my opinion, just as abortion is.
    I view this site as a place for men to vent and find fellowship. Women have so many venues of sharing with each other. Women are wired to share with each other, men are not. We men feel isolated, helpless and trapped when we are in a bad relationship. Couples therapy doesn’t really help and apparently the churches no longer are a comfort. Having this blog and others like it can be very helpful for some men.

  156. Cowtown says:

    Dalrock, I’ve been reading your excellent blog for over two years, and I’ve learned a lot from you. A few days ago, I got into a discussion with one of my buddies about divorce and its effects on children, many of which are well documented. Using nothing other than anecdotal evidence gathered by my lying eyes for a few decades, I hypothesized that children of divorce go on to have fewer children, themselves, as adults. My buddy claimed the exact opposite. I tried to find statistics and studies on the fertility rates of children of divorce, but I came up blank. Either no one has ever studied the fertility rates of children of divorce or my Google Fu is sorely lacking. You know more about divorce, and its negative effects on Western Civilization than…. basically anyone. So, if you have a moment, what are your thoughts on the matter? Thanks.

    I doubt what works for a couple who can afford two Manhattan residences is best for the majority of us. Includes the lovely rationalization:

    “Marriage, meanwhile, has become more of a status symbol than a necessity for many. Tying the knot stopped being the gateway act to adulthood years ago. Women in particular no longer need a husband to buy a house, have a child, or pay the bills, which helps explain a surprising fact in a Pew Research Center report released Wednesday: Single mothers have tripled in number over the last 50 years.”

    I read an article/post here (or possibly linked from here) a week or so ago and I can’t seem to find it again. One part in particular stuck with me but it, in general, was a commentary on why women choose divorce and why they view beta’s as incompatible. One of the reasons given was that the husband couldn’t “keep up with” the wife. Does that ring a bell?? Could you direct me to that article/post?

    [D: Could it be this post?]

  167. Allan says:

    I saw a newspaper article about a local RC priest Daniel Conlin who fathered a child with the wife of a man with children at his church.

    http://www.twincities.com/localnews/ci_23696179/hes-priest-hes-parent-and-nothings-simple-after

    Nine years later, the priest still performs mass, serves on the archdiocese’s marriage tribunal, which decides annulments and pays $750/mo child support. The man and wife separated and divorced after the child was born.

    The man’s (who’s wife had the affair) father asked: “”When all is said and done, my main concern is the (child and the child’s siblings). … And I just don’t know what they’re supposed to understand.”

    Good question. Reading your blog a while lately has clarified that for me at least. Marriage is pretty much over in secular society, and child support (a check by mail) is the enduring relationship men have to women and children. The article mixes in cases of priest child sexual abuse… I don’t get that connection myself, except to further the view that all problems in relationships are men’s fault, men have only obligations and responsibilities in sex. The article says not one word about the wife, her choices, breaking her vows, nothing.

    The RC here recently fought heavily against the successful passage of gay marriage in Minnesota, so it’s striking they say nothing in this case about “a priest (who was) in a position to pass judgment on marriages is the same guy who destroyed a family and a marriage itself? I’m at a loss,” as the husband’s father said.

    Dalrock, just saw the recent film Mud and I think it is worth dissecting in a blog post.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mud_%282012_film%29

    It is mainly a story on oneitis and the damage it causes. With a young boy coming of age and having the painful realization that women don’t respect his love.

    The movie has it all. Parents going through divorce with the wife acting entitled. A girl that manipulates men (that an older character calls her out for). A young girl acting fickle and callous. It even has a direct quote from a sleazy girl that “I’m a princess, you should treat girls like princesses!”. An idea about the “cure” becoming deadly. And in the end, men are saved by looking out for each other, being industrious, and not getting hung up on women.

    Dalrock! Were an engaged couple who have been reading your blogs the past two months. Love it by the way.

    We have been kidding a best friend on how she reminds is of Scarlett O’Hara from Gone With The Wind. While we were trying to find stuff to send her to aggregate her with we came across this article in the NY Times:

    http://www.nytimes.com/1995/02/19/weekinreview/word-for-worda-scholarly-debate-rhett-scarlett-rough-sex-rape-feminists-give.html?src=pm

    It talks about the “rough sex/rape” scene between Scarlett & Rhett in the movie and the feminist debate around the event. If you’ve seen the film then you know Scarlett wakes up the next morning happy and kinda overjoyed really.

    As we read it we both thought of how we would love for you to do a post on it. Maybe explain what you think that scene. You know, Rhett’s frustration and actions & then Scarlett’s reaction to the event. We thought it would be enlightening to hear ur take on it and the message it sends.

  197. Kevin says:

    Dalrock, a friend of mine got married without a certificate from the state. Him being a true libertarian doesn’t see the need for the government to get involved in defining his marriage. As he explains, “It’s a covenant relationship between my wife and myself before God. There is no need for the government.” The marriage was conducted at their church and both have put themselves under the headship of the church leaders. It got me thinking that maybe if more Christian men went this route you would see less women wanting to divorce because they are unhappy. If couples marry without the government, only doing a religious ceremony, then the man doesn’t have to worry about the government taking half his stuff to give to the wife. He doesn’t have to worry about custody battles. The only higher authority would be the church leaders and they can’t order the husband to give half his assets away. The worst they can do is issue a religious certificate of divorce.

    Hi Dalrock.

    I’m a lurker on your blog and had a question for you (apologies if this is covered in a post, I skimmed through your archives and nothing jumped out at me).

    Do you have any advice for young men who are serious about finding a good girl to marry? I understand the basics (work on yourself as much as possible to improve physical fitness, income, and masculinity), but do you have any advice beyond that? The “throw yourself into the strip-mining machine” strategy might work for players on some level, but it’s a brutal numbers game for average (beta) men, and not likely to lead to finding a decent girl for a serious relationship (girls who are strip-mining know that their men are easily replaceable and don’t treat them terribly well)

    thanks for keeping up the blog, it’s the only manosphere blog I’ve found so far that is useful for anyone but players/alphas.

  207. niceski says:

    How do you define “post-feminism” (as in “post-feminist world”)? And how do you parse out the impact of *feminism* from individualism and egalitarianism which provide the underlying ideological scaffolding for feminism? Research shows that individualism and egalitarianism are cognitively and temporally a priori to feminism, both among individuals as well as over time across cultures. While individualism and egalitarianism are a priori too feminism, they are ideationally and logically consistent with one another and highly interwoven cognitively. Empirically speaking, studies show this interweaving becomes progressively solid over time as societies relinquish religious and superstitious beliefs and move towards rationality. So, given this empirical reality (supported by numerous studies), do you have some game plan for how we could culturally “keep” individualism and/or egalitarianism but root out feminism? Or would you propose we get rid of all notions of individual rights and equality between peoples, just so we could get rid of feminism?

    Also, more than any other factor, feminism–understood as the call for women’s equality with men–is the direct byproduct of economic development and change. The progressive rise of knowledge-based urban economies where fertility control (necessary for lower and postponed fertility) and high investment in education for both women and men (including the ability to invest in children’s educations) are optimal strategic pathways for survival. In other worlds, feminism is fully consistent with the imperatives of the economy and entirely rational. So then what???

    Honestly, you need to address this obvious stuff. Unless all you want to do is rant.

  208. steve says:

    Dalrock, great blog, its been really inciteful and accurate with my experiences. You should look up a famous economics paper by Janet Yellen’s (new federal reserve chairmen who replaced ben bernanke) Nobel Prize winning husband on “The markets of lemons”. He is one of the most famous economists alive today and this paper would fit ABSOLUTELY perfectly with this blog. He describes how lemon cars without adequate consumer protections can actually collapse entire markets. It should not escape you that the principles and conditions described in the paper are exactly what is going on in the marriage market. You really have to take a look at that paper, it is an easy read and is an absolute gem. I assure you it is well worth the 15 minutes!!!

  212. Anonymoose says:

    Dalrock: your blog has been an interesting, informative read for me at the present station in my spiritual journey. I’ll tell you that I’ve been an “out” gay guy for almost 30 years (now aged 46) and I’m lucky enough to be physically healthy and in a stable, satisfying relationship. But here’s the thing: as I coast more deeply into middle age, all around me in our culture I see the unmistakable, increasing signs of what I can only interpret as depravity. I do sometimes wonder what role I’ve had in helping this come to pass, simply by participating on the periphery. Both my partner and I eschew most of what passes for gay culture and most of our friends are straight, because to us, gay men collectively, for the most part, seem self-centered, superficial, and removed from reality.

    One thing that becomes clear in reading blogs such as yours: under different cultural circumstances I might have been inclined to suck it up and get married to a woman and raise a family. But under the present circumstances there are absolutely no incentives to do so. Your January 3 post “More ominous than a strike” comes to mind here. In other cultures and times I might have paid the price of an unfulfilling sex life (and missing out on the related emotional goodies) but gained an arguably more valuable prize of children and family. However, the current culture can’t guarantee that even after such a sacrifice I’d get to keep that family and relationship with my children, so then what’s the point? Indeed, nothing is more vicious than a woman that suspects her husband may be gay, and she’ll do anything to destroy her husband’s relationship with his children (I could deliver a number of supporting anecdotes I’ve collected from previouly married friends over the years). In other words, there are profound disincentives towards marriage for men whose attraction to women is weak or nonexistent… in general, I applaud your blog in examining how the incentives built into our culture are slowly destabilizing it.

  213. Greg says:

    @Anonymoose

    Your comment is extremely interesting to read. In fact, I don’t believe I’ve ever read anything like it.

    To think that a culture could be so pro-natalistic and pro-fatherhood as to encourage a gay man to enter a heterosexual marriage is quite amazing to think about.

  214. Anonymoose says:

    Greg: *Most* previous cultures have been this way. The increasing prevalence of homosexuality in this culture did not spring from a vacuum, but arose from alterations in incentive structures, in both positive and negative senses. I would argue that most past and present cultures that have minimum prevalence of visible homosexuality manifest this phenomenon mostly through the positive incentive of family life and only incidentally through the negative incentive of censure. Homophilic desire will always exist, for humans as well as non-human aninals, but fatherhood is a very powerful incentive for a man past the age of 30: it still occurs to me from time-to-time to jump on the bandwagon of gay fatherhood, but I believe that a child needs both male and female role models (“Dad” and “Mom”) and there is no woman in my life that I would trust enough to engage in the long term project of helping to raise a child.

    As Dalrock has written about on this blog, our society is entirely too focused on sex and romantic love. From a cultural vantage point that elevates sex and romance, gay relationships and “marriage” make sense, and to the extent that “marriage” is about a formal state-sanctioned commitment between two adults, I obviously support state sanctioned gay civil unions (I would prefer to use the term “civil union” and I view “marriage” as an unfortunate choice in words that will only backfire in the long run). However, in most other cultures past and present, “marriage” was actually about raising children and intergenerational transfer of wealth, and from that perspective, modern Western “marriage” (gay or straight) makes no sense at all.

  215. Anonymoose says:

    One other thing… I think what I like about this blog is an implicit understanding of something that very few people, especially in liberal/progressive/libertarian circles, understand. The great failing of the modern West, which underlies all of our problems and will probably eventually be our undoing, is a fundamental error of moral reasoning: morality is not ultimately a property of invidvidual, deterministic actions, but rather a collective property of individual stochastic actions. There is a reason Sodom was destroyed as a city, and not specific wicked individuals within Sodom. An individual choice may seem harmless and have even positive consequences, but when these choices are aggregated over the full population distribution of all motives and incentives, lead to destructive outcomes at the population level. This is our cultural blind spot, and it applies not only to sexual and family morality, but also to economics, corporate behavior, and environmental degradation.

    I was wondering if you’d do an article about unemployment and options for young men.

    I myself am a young unemployed man, and I find a lot of anger building up regarding my situation. I earned straight A’s in school, a STEM scholarship, and (had) a solid work history, but no one is hiring right now, plain and simple. It was easy as pie just 6 years ago to walk up to a random restaurant and get part time work.

    In particular, I see the riots happening in Spain and Italy and can’t help but feel the destruction is warranted. If the economic situation is threatening our families, violence is the only moral action one could possibly undertake in defense of our families. If it comes between my kid starving to death and some lazy minority getting handouts, or some comfortable old person receiving their social security, you can bet I’ll be burning buildings down and threatening people with violence.

    My pastor in particular basically encourages us to lay down and die and let the anger fade away. I’ve become quite disillusioned with old people living comfortable lives who would offer the younger generation up for sacrifice in the name of “morality” and following what are supposedly god’s ways.

    I’d like to hear your thoughts on the issue.

    Dalrock,

    A good friend came across this:
    http://www.charismanews.com/us/44398-church-divorce-rate-way-lower-than-anyone-thought

    And since it seems to show different divorce numbers within the church than you commonly here, I figured you may be interested in it. It raises the question if the church is being slandered by bad data, or if the church, in this article, is nit picking data to make itself look good.

    Dalrock,

    Wasn’t sure where to post this, but thought you might enjoy the read. http://feministing.com/2014/07/03/the-one-where-i-need-help-understanding-why-mras-dont-become-feminists/. The best line is “But again, all of the grievances expressed here by MRAs can be solved by undoing patriarchy/misogyny/sexism and redefining masculinity/manhood. Which… are all goals of feminism. So why aren’t MRAs feminists?” Enjoy!

    Dalrock, Love your blog. Here’s a linked article that might provide some fodder for the blog. I nominate this guy “Nick” as this years mangina/betaboy/white knight of the year. Voluntarily cuckolding himself and paying for it and supporting this troubled woman! And she takes it as her birthright. Take a look and see what you think. Keep up the great work! http://www.xojane.com/it-happened-to-me/it-happened-to-me-i-was-single-pregnant-and-still-got-my-happily-ever-after
