The United States has embarked, or been embarked, on a headlong rush into matriarchy, something never before attempted in a major country. Men remain numerically dominant in positions of power, yes, but their behavior and freedom are ever more constrained by the wishes of hostile women. The effects have been disastrous. They are likely to be more so.

The control, or near control, extends all through society. Politicians are terrified of women. The president of an Ivy university is fired, and replaced by a woman, if he makes the obvious observation that women are not much good at mathematics. Women dominate the schools and universities. A Nobelist in biology has to apologize profusely for having said that in laboratories women cry when criticized. Women have forced the lowering of standards for hiring police and firemen, for the military. They have made life miserable for small boys. The beat goes on.

The pathological egalitarianism of the age makes it career-ending to mention that women in fact are neither equal nor identical to men. The differences are many and most of them are obvious:

Women are less curious than men. They will learn to drive or use a computer, but will have no idea how either machine works.

They are totalitarian. A man is willing to let girls be girls and boys be boys. Women want all to be girls or, more accurately, to behave according to female standards.

Men enjoy competition; women deplore it. “Lel’s have a cooperative game led by a caring adult.”

Men prefer freedom to security; women, security to freedom. Wear your helmet on your bike. Use sunscreen. Dodge ball is violent and dangerous. Don’t swim without a lifeguard.

Women prefer emotion to substance. College is now more about feeling good and social arrangements than about academics. Note that if a man suggests that women are not terribly good at math, they do not respond with counterevidence, which would be substance. They become furious, and get their way by what amounts to a vast hissy-fit.

Women hate each other; men do not. In any office, for example, ninety percent of the interpersonal problems will be between women.

Men are more intellectually engaged than women. Note that in think-sites of the web, such as The Unz Review, both the writers and the commenters are overwhelmingly male.

Women have more emotional range than men, being both kinder and meaner. A woman is more likely to care for a hurt puppy. In a divorce, she will be much more vicious than the man. He wants to get out, she wants to get even.

Women have less intellectual range than men. Fewer women than men are extremely stupid, and fewer women than men extremely smart; the disproportion increases with IQ, there being almost no women at the highest levels. This is the glass ceiling.

Women are subject to hysterias; men are not. (For readers under fifty, “hysteria” comes from the Greek for “womb.” The ancient Greeks thought the condition was caused by a disorder in this organ. It isn’t, but they had they knew in which sex it occurred.)

A pertinent example is the current fascination with imaginary rape. Further, they are more obsessed by far than men with political correctness, which is also a form of totalitarianism and a search for security.

Women now hate men; men just wish women would shut up.

It is the nature of women to complain, endlessly, of everything. This has been a staple of comedy from Xantippe to the present. The meddlesome, complaining mother-in-law is a stock figure, not the father-in-law. The language reflects this. It is not called “bitching” because men do it. Likewise we have shrew, nag, scold, harridan, virago, vixen, fishwife, termagant, and henpecked.

Women want to intrude on men, to leave them nowhere to be exclusively among other men. Men do not reciprocate this. If men try to open, say, a bar only for men, women explode. If women wanted to open a bar exclusively for women, men would not care.

Women have a poor sense of social boundaries or, in plain English, of knowing what is and what isn’t their concern. It amounts to generalized mother-in-lawing. In Mexico, where I live, it is invariably American women who want to tell Mexicans how to manage their society. A man cringes at the thought. Mexico isn’t his to run, and he knows it.

It is worth noting that women have little understanding of men. They may say, resignedly or ruefully, “Boys will be boys.” They have no idea of why boys are boys. They know how to manipulate men, yes: Flash a leg, stick their chests out, cry, or act helpless. They don’t understand men any more than a bear trap understands bears.

Women, puzzlingly to a man, do not seem concerned with performance or effectiveness. They must know that a woman who cannot carry her end of a stretcher should not be half of an ambulance crew. Yet if barred from the job, they resort to political pressure and have the standards lowered.

Certainly it is not from lack of concern with the patient. Women are more compassionate than men. Rather they seem not to make the connection between hiring standards and carrying an unconscious victim from a burning building. Similarly they do not want men to be killed in combat. Somehow, and this is a mystery to me, they cannot see the downstream consequences of having soldiers who cannot handle the physical demands. Short time horizons? Inability to imagine anything so alien to them as combat?

In reading the news, note that almost invariably it is the females of the species who complain of microaggressions, of “triggering” words that make the feel unsafe, of uncomfortable environments and the like.

ORDER IT NOW

In the past, when men were in control of women and directed them, women were of great value to society. They were fine teachers, having absorbed the masculine idea that school was about learning things. An admixture of male teachers and principal insured discipline, which women on their own could not—being controlled is not the default mode for boys—and so there was no need for the police to drag boys from school. Today women make good doctors, dentists, and shock-trauma nurses. It is only when they begin to make policy instead of effecting it that disaster befalls.

Differences so profound will affect political choices profoundly, as witness the conversion of the schools into misandrist hives for the promotion of appropriate thought or, more correctly, appropriate feelings. The desire to protect anyone but white men from any offense, however mild, is both totalitarian and mildly lunatic. It now dominates national life.

Where will this lead? Stay tuned.We are going to find out.

  2. Two comments.

    1. Men’s and women’s brains are wired differently. In men the wiring is more front to back which facilitates logical thinking. In women the wiring is more across the two lobes, which improves sensitivity or empathy. It may lead to slightlyhigher levels of verbal skills.

    2. There are certain medical professions in which women have difficulty. A female dentist had difficulty extracting a tooth of mine–I don’t think that she had the hand and arm strength to pull it out (she finally cut the tooth into pieces and took it out that way–a procedure that I prefer not to remember). I suspect not very women dentists are oral surgeons. Orthopedics requires fairly considerable strength to lift and manipulate limbs, so women are at a disadvantage there. I don’t think very many women are surgeons–that’s very high pressure work.

    The feminization of the work force and leadership is possibly the biggest societal change since the Industrial Revolution.

    MOST WOMEN HAVE LOW IQ’S AND ARE MENTALLY ILL.

    Thanks for the excellent article, Fred. You will never see a female pilot or a female auto mechanic—women are simply not capable to understanding the 3 dimensional motions of an airplane or the mechanics of either machine.

    Our colleges, which are basically diploma mills, are granting women bogus degrees. This fools women into thinking that because she has an education, whatever stupidity she spouts must be really true. Many cannot even spell. I know many women who cannot remember which way to unscrew a screw if it is facing down.

    Women confuse feeling for fact. If they “feel” something, they think it must be so. They rationalize.

    The prevalence of most mental illnesses is much higher in women.

    Most women are sheep. A woman I talked to on college wanted to protest a campus speaker was “racist” because others had organized such an event; when I questioned her on what he said or did that was “racist”, she became uncomfortable and angry that I was supporting a “racist” but could not answer. Many are liberal just because the word “liberal” sounds good. Many support blacks and immigration because being against it is “racist.” When I try to talk to them about the harmful effects of immigration and black crime statistics, they become emotional and angry, instead of rebutting with counterfacts.

    I have talked with good looking educated women and found most of them to be in the mentally retarded range and sheep.

    We are telling women that they know how to choose a man. But they really can’t do even that! Every time I go to the store, I often vomit when I see a beautiful white woman with a filthy looking dark-skinned thug-looking male bum. It leads me to just one and only one logical conclusion for such a situation–she must be mentally retarded or mentally ill. There can be no other logical or rational explanation.

    That is why most civilized societies do not allow women to go around with men or let them choose their own husbands entirely of their own accord. Most do not have the mental capacity to make the right choice. Parents, who can view the alliance from a distance and judge the man objectively, must approve. The whole idea that all that matters is love is baloney.

    Women should not be allowed to vote.

    CORRECTION AND ADDITION TO

    ‘capable to’ should read: capable of.

    Add:

    Excellent post, Fred. I agree. A few more points:

    Women are supposed to be better in verbal skills. But many women, even educated ones, cannot even spell. Just go to dating websites where they brag about how great they are—in profiles full of spelling mistakes.

    Women are very irrational. I once knew a girl who would often go to a pizzeria where they sold a small thin pizza for $10, but the pizza place next door sold a large for $7. She justified it by saying that she wanted to lose weight. When I told her that she could eat ½ the large pizza and I would eat the other half (or she could take it home), she still would not agree. The former place was often full of women who probably felt it must be better just because their pizza was more expensive.

    Women are shallow. They will spend hours talking about a pair of leather boots while the country is going to the dogs.

    “If a more intelligent version of yourself read https://heartiste.wordpress.com , said version of yourself would eventually come to the same conclusions Fred has.”

    Some would argue that Heartiste promotes anti-Godly masculinity, which is defined by Kings 2:1-3–“As David’s time to die drew near, he charged Solomon his son, saying, I am going the way of all the earth. Be strong, therefore, and show yourself a man. Keep the charge of the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, to keep His statutes, His commandments, His ordinances, and His testimonies, according to what is written in the Law of Moses, that you may succeed in all that you do and wherever you turn.”

    A married man and a single man are cut from the same cloth, so long as each loves the church (Ephesians 5:25), teaches their (future) offspring the nature of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4), provides for their family (Timothy 5:8), and is a man of impeccable character (Timothy 2:21-22).

    What does Heartiste ultimately offer? He says that men, married or single, should have sex with women by any means necessary. Marriage and children are for chumps. His “advice” is male adolescence on steroids.

    “That is why most civilized societies do not allow women to go around with men or let them choose their own husbands entirely of their own accord.”

    Here’s that damn word again, “civilized”. What is its definition? What metrics are involved?

    “Men build civilizations, and women then destroy them, each according to their strengths. Circle of life.”

    Actually, men build and destroy civilizations, since women are second class citizens in the eyes of those men.

    “Our colleges, which are basically diploma mills, are granting women bogus degrees.”

    No, diplomas have to be earned.

    “I have talked with good looking educated women and found most of them to be in the mentally retarded range and sheep.”

    Anecdotal evidence on your part, which is rife with confirmation bias.

    “Every time I go to the store, I often vomit when I see a beautiful white woman with a filthy looking dark-skinned thug-looking male bum. It leads me to just one and only one logical conclusion for such a situation–she must be mentally retarded or mentally ill. There can be no other logical or rational explanation.”

    It’s a conclusion allright, just not logical or rational. Do people have the liberty to choose who they want to marry and procreate?

    “Women should not be allowed to vote.”

    This is 2015, not 1815. Your opinion is duly noted.

    “Parents, who can view the alliance from a distance and judge the man objectively, must approve. The whole idea that all that matters is love is baloney.”

    I had a male dental surgeon take one out that way. He explained that most upper molars have 3 roots, and sometimes they’re curved so it’s impossible to get them out in one piece. As I recall, he simply crunched it to bits with some pliers-like tool.

    Not to detract from your valid criticism, but I have to disagree with this

    What does Heartiste ultimately offer? He says that men, married or single, should have sex with women by any means necessary. Marriage and children are for chumps. His “advice” is male adolescence on steroids.

    The few articles I’ve read are about understanding women, their needs and their idiosyncrasies. The advice is agnostic in its purpose – it is meant to make it easier for men to interact with women, but that applies to Lothario types, married men, people looking to settle down, fathers of women etc. I actually think the whole pseudo-scientific (yet very detailed and plausible) characterization of women is more helpful to men looking to commit and to raise families, and not to “pump and dump” Casanovas who end up poisoning the well for others, but have no need to do relationship management. The blogger himself takes an unnecessarily sentimental and thoughtful tone in many articles where the bulk of the text is obviously addressed to people who are invested in their relationships.

  24. Romanian says:
    @lardass

    I don’t think stereotyping counts as misogyny, at least not outside feminist la-la land. It’s pattern recognition. The very root of the word means hate. I think what you are describing is actually the fine print on philogyny (the love of women) that every man carries around in his head for his protection.

  25. Corvinus says:

    “The few articles I’ve read are about understanding women, their needs and their idiosyncrasies. The advice is agnostic in its purpose – it is meant to make it easier for men to interact with women.”

    I am certain there are specific truths borne out from his analysis, but the majority of the explanations are based on assumptions, anecdotal evidence, and confirmation bias.

    “characterization of women is more helpful to men looking to commit and to raise families…”

    Except his “advice” is designed to encourage married men to cheat. Again, this “characterization” may fit SOME women, but not ALL women.

    “The blogger himself takes an unnecessarily sentimental and thoughtful tone in many articles where the bulk of the text is obviously addressed to people who are invested in their relationships.”

    Sentimental? Well, I suppose, considering he desires to go back into time when women were barefoot and pregnant and submissive. Thoughtful? Indeed, by offering numerous ways for men to get into the pants of women by any means necessary.

    All valid points; the differences only become apparent when the law of large numbers kicks in. But in this environment the fact that more women are taking the SAT and getting higher marks and going to college leaves me unimpressed. A decision to forego college (and, for example, learn a skill) is entirely rational, and if men make that choice more often than women it may be that front to back brain wiring kicking in. Going heavily into debt for a “less than optimum” degree isn’t all that rational or proof of superior intellectual ability.

  33. @Corvinus

    The previous comment was posted inadvertantly and incompletely. Sorry.

    Far be it from me to defend Chateau Heartiste; he is entirely capable of a vigorous and effective self-defense. My impression by reading his blog casually, but over several years, is that most of his pick-up (game) advice is given with the intent of giving beta males a fighting chance in a society that increasingly devalues their traditional provider roles. True alpha males don’t need game; they attract naturally. Most of his analysis of the present decadence of the West is spot on.

  34. Rich says:
    @Corvinus

    The reason for the “world’s patriarchal nature” is precisely because the top 50 (probably can go much higher than 50) scientists, musical composers, mathematicians, and artists ARE male. The female’s inability to understand logic has always amazed me, but don’t worry, the effeminate males of the US appear to lack logic skills, too, so you will all be equal in the Idiocracy to come.

    “My impression by reading his blog casually, but over several years, is that most of his pick-up (game) advice is given with the intent of giving beta males a fighting chance in a society that increasingly devalues their traditional provider roles.”

    What devalues “beta males” is the hierarchy imposed by alleged alphas. The socio-sexual hierarchy, while valid in nature, is an artificial and arbitrary concept when employed by PUA’s. So, what rank are you–alpha, sigma, beta, gamma?

    Moreover, the “traditional provider roles”, fair or unfair, right or wrong, are have been redefined. Forever.

    “Most of his analysis of the present decadence of the West is spot on.”

    This decadence you refer to is facilitated by Roissy and his acolytes.

    “The female’s inability to understand logic has always amazed me”

    Right, because you are ALWAYS more logical compared to women.

    “but don’t worry, the effeminate males of the US appear to lack logic skills, too, so you will all be equal in the Idiocracy to come.”

    And what makes you NOT part of this “idocracy”? Do you consider yourself to be at the top rung of the socio-sexual ladder? Has this characterization been self-inflicted or has other people put you in this category?

    Fred, you’re mistaken in taking the words and demands of a very few, very shrill, very mentally ill, feministas as the viewpoint of average women. Particularly if you think we want the job of stretcher-carrier. We women who are nurses, and we are legion, most certainly are NOT agitating for any such thing. We know how much heavy lifting sucks, and we know how much we appreciate the helping hand we occasionally get from the male EMTs when it comes time to shift the car wreck victim off the stretcher and onto the x-ray table.

    There haven’t been much reading that I have done over the past 25 years that has made me want to stand up and cheer, this piece is, however, one that has.
    But, I gotta tell you this. As I read this piece, a vision slowly began to emerge into focus. Imagine this:
    It’s an upscale Bistro. Not where the Billionaires hang out, but still, a classy enough joint. Discreetly in a corner, a string quartet is starting up what sounds a little like modified Brahms, the place is quietly abuzz. Couples and pairs of couples populate the tables, and each table, in modestly quiet tones, are discussing their lives so far that day. It is a place of taste and dignity.

    Sitting alone at a table near the center of the room is Fred. Fred, smiling, with a newly legalized Cuban cigar dominating the left side of his face. He is dressed in a white, silk, Panama Suit. It is a three-piece, and he is completed with a pure white Panama hat, and a broad smile around the cigar. As the room continues it’s serious murmurings, Fred, not too surreptiously, reachs down to place his right hand behind his right knee and proceeds to lift the knee up slightly. This, of course, causes him to slightly lean left, whereupon Fred emits a certainly loud, but lengthy and liquidy fart.

    As the following silence moves outward at the speed of sound, across the room the jaws slacken, and the quartet dissolves into a chaotic stacatto of sharps and flats. Fred, suddenly noticing the change in atmosphere, retreives the Cuban from his mouth, raises it over his head, and announces, “Pray, continue!”

    Anecdotal evidence? The US armed forced have been plagued by feminist irrationality since the 1970s in the long-standing movement to feminize the military. In the mid-1980s, a sergeant in my military unit collapsed at his 3rd floor desk. They called the medics. Two female medics showed up with a stretcher/gurney. With the gurney on its wheels, the medics asked who (which males) were going to lift the sergeant onto the gurney. The medics rolled the gurney to the stairs. Then, the medics asked who (which males) were going to carry the gurney down the stairs. [?] What idiot assigned two female medics to an ambulance team? What if no males had been present to do the female medics’ job for them?

    The doctrines of feminism and diversity confronting reality (as constantly validated in the anecdotal experiences of the masses) both have social “carrying costs” — the costs of medics, students, firemen, policemen, soldiers, professors, etc., who cannot do their jobs, requiring organizations to over-hire to get things done … or, pretend that nothing is amiss. As the madness spreads, costs skyrocket and society becomes progressively more dysfunctional. Both are happening. What part of economic inflation, the skyrocketing cost of university education, and the general social malaise in our country can be attributed to these “carrying costs”?

    I witnessed one aspect of these pernicious trends just this morning as I passed the public library in famously SWPL Mill Valley, CA. A woman had 20 white pre-schoolers lined up against the wall and explicitly instructed them to never say anything that would hurt anyone’s feelings. Really, perfect proof of New Woman’s third-rate essence, for any inclined to doubt it.

  47. The two biggest problems in the USA,* are matriarchy, and plutocracy (and they go hand-in-hand; it was the plutocrats who invented Feminism ie., the idea that we could double the work force by including women within it, and then just cut everyone’s wages in half, in order to get double the workers for the same pay…although this did have to be implemented gradually). Once those problems are solved, we’ll be able to tackle the others.

    I really enjoy a remark made by the writer, Florence King, who said that women have ruined political discourse in the USA, by directing prissy accusations of “incivility,” towards anyone who doesn’t just lie about everything, all the time.

    Oh, my God. She should be immediately fired. I mean, how dare a female–the traditional nurturer–make this demand upon children. The nerve.

    “it was the plutocrats who invented Feminism ie., the idea that we could double the work force by including women within it, and then just cut everyone’s wages in half, in order to get double the workers for the same pay”

    No, not plutocrats. Business owners. You know, capitalists. Do they not have the liberty to do what they want with they company and property? Is it not in their best interest to maximize profits? What are you, a communist?

    “Shut up, fag.”

    No, call him a “cuckservative”. That’s the word of the day.

    “Nor should any man under the age of 25, as far as I’m concerned.”

    Trust us, we ARE concerned.

    In YOUR version of the United States of America, what ought to exist?

    You know what would stop the feminization of the US military? A real god-damned war. I don’t mean Afghanistan or Iraq or even Vietnam. I mean some Battle of the Bulge type of shit where a thousand men die in a day to combat action.

    The best example was the last Gaza war between Israel and Hamas. Lots of Jewish kids, many of them young women hailing from Europe and the US, flew into Israel to serve the IDF. That stopped being cool when videos on Youtube showed Hamas fighters popping out of tunnels near the rear of IDF combat units where many reservists were positioned.

    Now you hear how Israel is “unsafe” from these girls who were just all to happy to become jewish-jihadists for the IDF.

    The same thing with the US. Once women get into REAL combat where an entire battalion suffers masses of causalities the feminization will stop. Reality will kick in and looking handsome in a uniform isn’t worth being horribly disfigured for life (or even getting killed over).

    204 mass murders in 204 days in this country. Guess how many of the perpetrators were women?
    Hmm….seems males need to work on emotional control.

    I can’t tell you how sad it made feel to see Fred descend to this sort of unmitigated intellectually bankrupt diatribe. You are wrong on so many counts Fredthat I realised, after I started to put together a very rational response, that it really wasn’t worth bothering with. You have catered to the lowest of the low, those with runny slime for brains like Tom R, of whom there seem to be a sad plethora.

    Certainly, just about every response to this thread has lowered this web site for me. If this is the level of discourse, why would I come here? I can read Pepe Escobar, the Saker, and others, at other places.

    Of course, perhaps I could say that, given the locale of the site what you meant to say was “American Women?” Given the view of America I share with the most of the rest of the world – a sort of distasteful distain and loathing – I would have to say you could be correct.

    But really – “Women” are this, that and the other??? All how ever many billion of us there are? No individuality for Fred, then, is that it?

    So I’m more incapable of curiosity, of practical ability, of objective analysis, I with my Ph. D in molecular genetics and biochemistry than Tom R, that outstanding distinguished sample of American manhood represented above? I with my published papers can’t think like a man working, say for the TSA? (Who brilliantly re-arranged all my packing, put carefully protected fragile objects from the middle of the case to the outside so they broke?). My daughter, an engineer who is about to be 2i.c. and head one of the first of Shells deep sea natural gas extraction plants from the platform of the biggest sea going platform ever built – she cannot work out how a pump should work and how to maintain Shell’s production requirements (better tell Shell) and should stay at home with her Father – who took a hike when she was a baby and left us both alone to survive – to make her decisions?

    Really really good one Fred.

    Oh, and of course, since it’s “women” who are so terminally deficient, this includes your lovely wife and daughters I presume?

    Neither my mother nor any of the Sisters in the Catholic grade school I attended ever instructed me to never say anything that hurt anyone’s feelings.

    I was thinking the same thing, no more playing soldier when the SHTF.

    I find that hard to believe, since the Sisters are well-versed in Scripture, and devote lessons in treating people with kindness and respect.

    There are heaps of scientific evidence showing that humans have the same innate sense of a (mostly male) status hierarchy as other animals, it’s what biologists call a ‘dominance hierarchy’. In males it has to do with social status, in females with fertility signaling.

    We can’t wish it away, since it is innate (again, heaps of evidence).
    Men do not even rank each other consciously (idem).
    This has been known for a long time.

    I don’t personally enjoy the combative tone I see in some of these comments. At the risk of irritating some people here I have to insist to do some serious science reading. Otherwise you risk reaching conclusions with very little rigor.
