She isn’t impressed.

Drudge has a link to a story about a Texas man on vacation in Tennessee who called 911 after his wife was squirted with water by a Hibachi chef (as part of the show):

I’m not from Tennessee so I don’t know Tennessee laws, but in Texas that is sexual assault.

The restaurant manager thinks this was about the customer wanting a free meal, but while the man asked for a refund I think the motivation has more to do with a misguided attempt to demonstrate that he is protective of his wife.

This kind of cartoonish chivalry goes over quite well from the pulpit, but in practice this man only lowered his own value in his wife’s eyes.  This isn’t to say that a husband shouldn’t protect his wife from real danger, but husbands should be very careful about getting drawn into this kind of drama.

Contrast the Texas man in Tennessee’s obsequious attempt to impress his wife with another Texas husband my wife observed the other day.  The couple was out shopping and the wife asked her husband if he would protect her if they were attacked by a bear:

Wife:  Would you protect me from a bear?

Husband:  How big is the bear?

Wife (laughing):  What if it is really big?

Husband:  Oh no, you are on your own then!

Wife (still laughing):  What if it is just a small bear?

Husband:  If it is just a small bear, then you should be able to protect yourself.

Wife:  So you wouldn’t protect me at all?

Husband:  Well, it depends.  What did you make for dinner that night?

Wife:  What if it was tuna casserole?

Husband:  Tuna casserole!  No way.  But you could throw the casserole at the bear.

In this case the wife was delighted by the whole exchange.

    A mangina move of the first order, no doubt. However, I’m led to wonder if his wife is a professional drama queen who acted as if she’d been doused with sulfuric acid. His reaction in that case was probably motivated by either a desperate grab for her continued (grudging?) approval, or, equally likely, a realization that if he didn’t white knight on her behalf he’d be sleeping on the couch and masturbating to porn for the next several (more) years.

    And yes, the cartoony chivalry that these pussies do for ungrateful wenches is just beyond eye rolling.

    “Cartoonish” is the perfect word to describe such behavior. If men are going to draw on the world of fiction to guide their ideas on manhood, they would be better off emulating Mike Hammer than Roger Rabbit.

  6. Lets allow for a bit more nuance here. Sure the guy is a ridiculous attention whore in an effort to show his wife he don’t take no shit when it comes to his woman. Having spent the vast majority of my adult life in Texas (and now living in TN) I submit there is a bit of Texas-Man (big “T” on the onesy and cape) thing also in play here. There is an observable phenomenon in Texas may be more obvious to those who move as adults from another state. That is the posturing that so many Texas men do, not only for white knight purposes, but also in some cases just to occupy a caricature they believe is attractive to woman in general and they they see as garnering the respect of other men. Meanwhile it makes them actually just unpleasant folks to be around.

    That is funny. Females seem to be attracted to Dark Triad psychology monsters because these men are not subservient, mangina, wimps. That is why polite, good boy, beta males get bossed around like a dog on a leash or get turned into the Butler. Alpha males are self centred, cunning, sometimes ruthless, dominating, aloof, cold, jerks.

    Very analogous to the showboating inner-city black man. He wears bling to be ‘tough’, but in reality was raised by a single mother, and wears jewelry only because his mother wore jewelry…

    Ha. There might be something to that. I am also a transplant, and have seen some of what you describe. But while it is probably more common here, I don’t see it as very common outside the CBMW crowd. Complementarians caught a particularly virulent form of this disease.

    Speaking of which, your theory caused me to check to see where the man who wrote this is located:

    Because dating and pursuing one’s wife is such an incredibly important issue, we are going to begin a multi-part series here at Manual encouraging you, urging you, and coming-off-the-top-rope-with-a-biblical-manhood-elbow-drop into you to challenge you to raise the bar in how you date and pursue your wife.

    There is no close second, bro.

    I was guessing that like Pastor Chandler, he was located here in Texas. But it turns out that he is one of yours, as he is located in Tennessee.

  11. Anon says:

    The funny thing is, the cartoonish whiteknight is tightening the noose around his own neck.

    As the woman draws away and finds his whiteknighting repulsive, he will do more of it, which pushes her further away. Eventually, cash and prizes will be paid to the woman.

    What is particularly pathetic about this whiteknight is that his ‘tough guy’ move was to call 9/11, and tout how well versed he is in the most tenuous interpretation of ‘sexual assault’ laws.

    How tough of him.

    Poetically, I would wager that the same 9/11 service will be his undoing in the future, when he is on the receiving end.

  12. @Dalrock

    Agreed on the churchy concentration of these men. You’ve seen me refer to them as the evangelically arrogant in posts and comments. Birds of a feather.

  13. Oh, and I knew about that seaweed wrap of a man over in Knoxville. Somehow I had the misfortune of having already followed a trail of his poo to the den.

  14. I saw the headline and knew I would not be clicking on it. Thanks and Kudos, Dalrock, as always, for mucking through the muck for us so we don’t have to.

    Maybe you can tell us what Hitlary said yesterday for those of us who are triggered by conventions. The short version?

    Empath,

    I noticed that moving to CO.

    Its amazing how ‘tough’ guys can wear jeans with little sparkly things on them, useless cowboy boots and posture around like they are th $hit. Cucks all the way around up here. Most crap their pants when you don’t care what they look like. Almost like they are hypergamic women and back down when you neg them.

  23. @Dalrock

    That back and forth at the end reminds me of a similar incident I saw between a Marine buddy and his then fiance while the three of us were chatting about their upcoming wedding. I was teasing him about how much older he was than his soon-to-be-wife and about the possibility of him losing his handsome coif to balding in the near future.

    Her, (out of the blue): “Would you still love me if I lost all my hair?”
    Him, with mischievous grin and without skipping a beat: “Nah, I’d have to upgrade to the newest model. I dig blondes.”
    Her (laughing): “You’re awful.” *reaches out and grabs his hand*

    The lesson here is that charming jerkboy gaming works. But even better, it doesn’t have to be immoral, vulgar, or cruel. A little mischievousness, wit, and confidence makes all the difference in the world.

  24. BubbaCluck says:

    In reading the article, the couple ate their meal and left.

    News 2 spoke with the manager Wasabi who told News 2 when they left the couple seemed to be satisfied, saying the food and service was good.

    Something happened in the car that caused the man to come back and say something. There was another post a while back about a car accident in Texas where the woman instigated a fight between the men who were already in the process of working things out.

    I’m thinking something similar happened to the couple in the car in the Murfreesboro, Tenn. parking lot.

  25. Dave says:

    Couldn’t disagree more. You could be Alpha and still be a good man to be around. An Alpha has a solid sense of self, and will not tolerate disrespect from anyone, especially from women. You don’t have to be ungodly to be an Alpha. Apostle Paul was as Alpha as they come. Yet he was more humble than most men who ever walked the earth. Moses was the same. Joshua. Even David.
    About time we started setting a few things straight in this culture.

    I noticed the same thing watching the video. The man came back about 30 minutes later?

    Fucking Texas women. I posted this story of mine on Return of Kings as a comment, but for the sake of the story I will post it here. I live in West Texas. About a month ago I almost ran over a young white couple while pulling into the local YMCA parking lot. They didn’t seem to mind because they were too busy arguing about something. And she was really on his face, as if testing him to see if he swing at her. Oh, and have I mentioned that it was 95F outside and she was barefoot in the scorching parking lot? I don’t know how it ended. I wasn’t going to intervene on between two inbreds fighting over nonsense. Plus, I was too focused on my workout to care. So yes, Texan women have a knack for instigating violence.
    Conclusion: How the hell will Texan men deal with Hillary in the event she wins if they can’t deal with their mess of women, especially when their cars have “Spoiled Bitch” decals? No wonder these dumbasses hide underneath the Second Amendment.

  30. Jim says:

    A self described “spoiled bitch” eh? Kind of sounds like a child doesn’t it?

    I wasn’t going to intervene on between two inbreds fighting over nonsense.

    I know what you mean. I’d never bother with someone else problems either. Just let them be. Besides, you’re only asking for trouble, especially if it escalates to the point where the cops intervene. If you get a chickenshit white knight cop you’re dead meat.

  31. feeriker says:

    So yes, Texan women have a knack for instigating violence.

    The most beautiful part of that video Dalrock posted a couple of months ago was that the bovoporcine bitch who.instigated the fight wound up having it blow up in her face. “Let’s you an’ him fight” morphed into “let’s have you get bitchslapped upside the head.” Turned her from a badass bitch into a wounded little damsel right quick.

  32. Dave says:

    “Let’s you an’ him fight” morphed into “let’s have you get bitchslapped upside the head.” Turned her from a badass bitch into a wounded little damsel right quick.

    I saw the video and it was hilarious to watch.
    I am sometimes tempted to think that women generally have a problem evaluating imminent dangers to themselves, despite their perennial feelings of insecurity. How else do you explain the case of most women who instigate fights they clearly cannot win, and against opponents that could make them into minced meats?
    Men generally, in spite of their boastful attitudes, know instinctively who not to mess with. You’ll almost never see an average Joe mouthing off against a professional boxer, while the latter is present. Women are a different matter entirely.

    I can’t begin to articulate all the levels here. Sweden, really? Bleeding edge of all that can go wrong with feminism run amok? (but maybe that explains the ‘perp’) You’re saying that’s a woman? Interesting photo choice that Ms. Policewoman put on her instagram page. Etc. and Etc. I hope Ms. Texas gets to see this article.

  34. Was reading a blog entry from a page that is geared to ‘christian singles’

    One post was concerning “what-would-you-say-to-your-college-self-now”. All the entries were written by contributors to this page as they reflected upon, ten, twenty, twenty-five years out of college.
    Yes, all the men who contributed said / wrote:
    “You need to ask her out. Now!”
    “Even though she said no to you, but you are friends, it means she wants and expects more from you. Step up, be her hero. She wants to say yes but wants to see what a real man acts like when he wants something!”
    “Being more understanding to women, that includes women in your family!”
    “Date her, don’t hang with her…….make your motives clear. Women want men who know what they want out of life!”

    Not one guy mentioned anything of: I would’ve studied harder. I would have taken a chance on studying abroad, or really pushing myself into a more challenging major. They said nothing about building better interpersonal skills. None said anything about being more conformed to Christ.

    Yes, all the women commented / wrote:

    drivel about hairstyles they wished they did not have, nonsense about having “no regrets” even with the “abusive” boyfriend because she learned what she wanted or needs with a “real man” in life. lots and lots of comments about “traveling more” at that age. stupid comments about boy bands…nothing about men asking them out…..I guess they never had problems getting dates……

    The women were not “impressed” by anything and I don’t think really learned anything about themselves years and decades after college. High cloud comments about “Jesus in the end is in control of me” but no action………safe comments…because if a woman admits a regret…she lets’ the “whole sisterhood” down, and that’s much, much more important that being a Christian today.

    They were not impressed. Sad actually

  35. Red Pill Latecomer says:

    The above YouTube video doesn’t show the couple. This one does:

    Wow. Can’t say I’m surprised, though. A stereotypical redneck “she-beast,” accompanied by her hapless cuck redneck husband, who demonstrates his frustrations over his lot in life by lashing out at everybody and everything that his little brainlet thnks poses a threat to his “manhood.”

    I saw lots of these pairings in the six years total that I lived in west Texas. One could write a doctoral dissertation in anthropology or behavioral psychology on this subject.

    Indeed. You don’t need to go to Africa. If you want to go on safari, just go to a Permian Basin Wal-Mart. The only difference here is, the animals here can potentially shoot back at you. And no offense to anyone here, but into opinion the white folks are the worst.

  40. Anchorman says:

    If you’re offended, confront it at the time. You don’t even need to get belligerent. Just make eye contact with the chef and indicate to stop.

    Coming back 30 minutes later indicates he’s the type to “quietly fume” or didn’t really care until she started in on him.

    My instinct says the kids/grandkids starting joking about it in the car and the grandparents had to say it wasn’t right. That led to grandma harping on it and grandpa getting worked up enough to re-engage.

    Bah.

  43. Kevin says:

    We were not there so it’s hard to know what happened. But the usual pattern is the wife was chosen to get a little harmless squirt of water for group laugh- she gets huffy and indigent because she cannot take a joke and her husband rushes to defend her because he is emotionally limited and so lacks the perspective to see she is over reacting or the emotional strength to say – yes this was offensive but is not worth pursuing. Both situations involve a husband saying “No” – something many modern husbands cannot do. And that’s sad. Lots of women are crazy but sometimes a strong husband can limit the damage of the crazy by saying no.

    This is pretty cool thing to highlight – the over the top chivalry is almost always ridiculous.

  44. Matt says:

    You will of course be 0% surprised that in the real world, the Texas Penal Code (section 22.011) defines sexual assault in terms of a list of offenses that all boil down to penetration without consent. Hibachi water ain’t on the list.

  45. Imagine if the hibachi chef urinated on the woman.

    There oughta be a law against that, or at least a letter added to LGBTQ?

  46. JBP says:

    The white-knighting thing is so misunderstood. Protecting the pack or tribe is the duty of the alpha. It’s the reason social predators form hierarchical groups. But when something is a duty, people are slow to do it. So cartoonish jumping to the rescue reveals that the person isn’t an alpha, but wants you to think so.

    Aha. We have that sort of muppet Over Here as well. Instantly recognisable.
    They’re generally referred to as “jakies” (=chronic alcoholics- check the eyes/eyebags) or “schemies” (project-dwellers). They’re excused boots/work as a matter of course, and have a generous governmental stipend (at a munificence they could never aspire to even sober, by their own efforts).
    I detect the universal scum-class attempted shakedown for “compo”, gone slightly wrong due to foreign management not understanding/having utter contempt for their precious fake fee-feez.

  51. Opus says:

    I was sorry to learn about your hot-air balloon disaster; you wouldn’t get me up in one of those machines.

    I don’t think I ever comment on American politics and certainly not on your never-ending and ongoing election process. I did observe recently that your President’s powers are limited and subject to slight correction thereon from Novaseeker seem to recall that he agreed essentially with the proposition – the POTUS of course has nevertheless tremendous influence.

    I say that as I have had recently had some unexpected experiences. One of my friendly acquaintances sent me a link to an article mocking Mr Trump for Melania’s alleged plagiaristic indiscretions. I replied by asking what this might have to do with me or him seeing that neither of us are American citizens. My acquaintance mentioned the matter whilst out with me in boisterous company a few evening later. He then sent me another link relating to the same matter. By then he was in continental europe with his eldest daughter. This was the day the Priest was beheaded and I cautioned him that he and his daughter were potential targets. His response was to say that he did not understand what I meant. I ignored his request for elucidation and sent him a link to a joke at Mrs Clinton’s expense.

    A few days later another acquaintance who is a-political and has never previously linked to a political matter shared a joke if joke it be as to a forthcoming assassination of Mr Trump. I felt compelled to respond and again asked a question. After a reply and a further question my friend went into caps-locked shouting at me saying that it wasn’t about me. I replied by asking how he would feel about a similar joke at the expense of Mrs Clinton – or Mrs Merkel.

    Last night talking by phone to my girlfriend she said that a borderless world was her utopian dream. I went silent. Noticing this she said that he still liked limits. After some seconds I replied that limits were borders. This seemed to confuse her and she said she would think about it.

    At no time did I voice any view of support for or against Mr Trump or for or against Mrs Clinton. None of my correspondents are either American citizens or would-be illegal immigrants to your country, and I am thus at a loss to understand their aggression towards Mr Trump. It cannot be Trump himself who always strikes me as softly spoken and good at maintaining frame. What if I may ask is the explanation for this temper-tantrum meltdown.

  52. SirHamster says:

    Virtue signaling. Speaking against the Devil to solicit social approval.

    Except that their choice of Devil is not based on devilry, but on the latest idea fashions for globalist world citizenry. As a nationalist, Trump is a symbol of anti-globalist sentiment and a threat to the globalist world order. So out come the unprompted verbal barbs in casual social settings.

    I’m sure that Bush and Reagan triggered similar behavior in previous years – that fit with your experience?

    Trump probably represents a threat on another level as well. He seems to be a heterosexual white male that is not pandering to the FI or other SJW special interest groups. Worse, he does not seem ashamed or apologetic about his status. He is wrecking the narrative.

    Can you imagine “President Trump’s” White House press conferences? This guy has NO fear of the media whatsoever and will pwn any reporter who tries to be an arrogant smartass with him. Given that fewer and fewer people pay any attention to the already discredited, pathetic gaggle of bottom feeders that constitutes the “White House ‘Press Corps,'” I can easily see being assigned to that bunch becoming a “reporter’s” worst nightmare during a Trump Administration.”

    Hell, I’d probably start watching the news again just for the entertainment value of such events.

  55. Looking Glass says:

    @Opus:

    They’re projecting their insecurities. Continental Europe has a full-blown Islamic Insurgency starting, so looking down at Americans supposed simpleness is a way rationalize away the trouble. For all of America’s significant problems, war will brake out in Europe in the very near future.

    They’re also projecting their insecurity about their cultures. It’s verboten to be proud to be where you’re from, unless you’re not from that place and living in a different place. “Nationalism = Evil” to the Progressive mind. Completely ignoring that Globalist Communism killed a massive amount more than anything else in the 20th Century.

  56. Opus says:

    Thanks to Sir Hamster, Lost Patrol, feeriker and Looking Glass for the valued input. I am just very sorry that the latest mortality in the insurgency – Russell Square last night – was one of your fellow countrywomen.
