From the New York Times:

The Sexist Undertones of Wedding Marketing

Many brides, not so much grooms, see a presumptive and sexist slant on social media and online marketing, before and after their wedding.

By Suzannah Weiss, Oct. 5, 2019

Laurie Vazquez, a 36-year-old marketing manager in New York City, had decided to keep her last name after she got married in June. But not everyone seemed to be on board with these plans.

Before and after the wedding, the Knot, an app she used to plan and share memories with family and friends, and WeddingWire, a site that provided wedding vendors, both repeatedly sent emails reminding her to change her last name.

“They stressed me out,” Ms. Vazquez said. “They were so close to the day of, and I had millions of other things to worry about.”

She unsubscribed to the emails. Then once Ms. Vazquez designated that she was married on her Facebook profile, she began seeing ads for baby products on the social media platform. “They made an assumption about me,” she said. “I know the societal trend for young women in their 20s is to start family planning quickly after they get married, but that’s not me.”

As a lifetime subscriber to Eager Groom magazine, I’ve noticed that us men are never oppressed by distant institutions being unaware of our most intimate decisions. Somehow, they just know, so we never get stressed.

  2. “They made an assumption about me,”

    No, you blockhead, they made a calculated marketing decision to send a standard ad based on your demographics. It’s a scattershot approach designed to yield the most responses. That’s not an assumption.

    Note how tiffed Mrs. Vazquez feels specifically about having a baby/family planning. Something tells me the lady doth protest too much.

    Seriously, women seem to hate the idea that people assume things about them. Of course, what they hate even more is when those assumptions are right. And yet these are the same folks who study vague horoscopes like mad, trying to pigeon hole every guy they meet by his birthday, his race, his favorite band, and his job. Projection is a basic b itch.

    Well, then. Maybe the wedding industry needs to spend more time advertising beer kegs, strippers and porn flicks for the stag party, and videos of the groom and the stripper, to even things up a bit…

    The internet says some guy named Nietzsche has this to say about women:

    ‘Surface,’ wrote Nietzsche, is a ‘woman’s soul, a mobile, stormy film on shallow water.’ Relegating women to the shallows is, of course, to deny them depth, but the surface to which they are condemned is not without its own qualities: fluidity, responsiveness, sensitivity to a given moment or sensation. Female writers have always understood this.

    https://aeon.co/essays/why-does-philosophy-hold-clothes-in-such-low-regard

    This Nietzsche guy somehow escaped the clutches of the Society to Cut Up Men(SCUM) and he let loose with this doozy about distaffers:

    Science offends the modesty of all real women. It makes them feel as though it were an attempt to peek under their skin–or, worseyet, under their dress and ornamentation!

    I love most women and I think this Nietzsche guy is a nasty bastard of the worst sort.

  21. Just because the failing NYT reports on something doesn’t mean it’s interesting. I’m surprised this LA-based blogmeister doesn’t share more links from his hometown paper.

    I mean, there was a pretty big story in the LA Times yesterday about how Mexico is whining that American guns are being used in Mexican shootouts. Their government is pushing for more U.S. gun control. It’s a significant story that required lots of reporting. The conclusion is predictable and left-wing (it’s our fault Mexicans slaughter each other). And yet, as of now, there are only 18 comments by readers. The same story in the NYT would garner many hundreds of comments. Mostly terrible comments, but still.

    Actually, the probability of this is 0%. White women will avoid the (bottom) tier of men who populate White Nationalist ranks at all costs.

    Heartiste used to point this out all the time. White women will never join WN until men outside the bottom 20% become dominant within it. As it stands right now, WN is a goddess cult full of incels, and has almost no women in it.

    The above (needy, loserish) quote from you is exactly what would make Heartiste cringe like nothing else could.

I wrote an email to the moron who wrote the article. Ask Mr Google about the late 1960s Hodge cases and 1975 Donaldson case in which all 9 Supreme scumbag minions of Satan ordered every mental patient in the country put out into the street.

    When Arthur Miller married Marilyn Monroe, his prime motive was to “go over on” his frenemy Elia Kazan.

    Kazan’s response:
    “You don’t marry a girl like that”.

    It was a big mismatch: though Monroe was not stupid she was not particularly intellectual, had no formal education, and was eccentrically well read. Sexually, Monroe found Miller a dud.

    Miller was to be much happier with third wife Inge Morath.

My current FB ads are all based on groups I belong to – I “like” a few local dog rescue groups so I’m currently getting Chewy and dog DNA testing ads; things my local Facebook friends have “liked” – my friends seem to be big on shopping at Target; or clothing store brands that email me sale notifications. I assume her similar-age local Facebook friends are having babies so that is likely why she is getting baby gear ads.

    On the other hand, back before the sexual revolution destroyed the nuclear family both in law and in convention fathers would disinherit sons with poor matrimonial judgment and putative in-laws might run a boy out of town if he knocked up one of the girls in their brood without marrying her. Perhaps direct responsibility of (((one segment))) in those social “evolutions” is debatable but that (((they))) expedited the process greatly at each step along the way and far out of proportion to (((their numbers))) is impossible to overlook.

    Looking back on history, while it’s true that you had Conquistadors fornicating with, raping and even marrying women whose resultant progeny would be of dubious quality in the early colonial Americas, you have to keep in mind that their fathers were typically far (often an ocean) away and their mates’ clans quickly cowed into submission by spears and guns or just eradicated by variola.

    That was pretty much my point. The guy marrying this Laurie Vazquez, the 36-year old “marketing manager” (that apparently doesn’t understand how marketing works) is displaying very poor matrimonial judgment. Whether he should be disinherited or not is between he and his family.

    The other commenter didn’t like my use of the phrase “there are women you f*&k and then there are women you marry”. That’s fine and I agree fathers should discourage their sons from promiscuous behavior and treating women poorly. But even if the kid had been celibate, deciding to marry someone like this Vazquez woman is bad headwork.

    For some reason the mother of the Bronte authors, Maria Branwell, came to my mind. She married at twenty-nine (the average age of marriage in the UK at that time was about 23) and mother of 6 before dying at 35 or so. I read a lot of biographies; biographies of authors are often more interesting than what they write. Fertility may decline gradually starting at some age around 30, but it doesn’t suddenly plunge. That happens after 40. Even after that, some more or less normal persons have been produced, such as my younger brother and sister.

    The newer trend is for hispanic professional women to RETAIN that hispanic surname, for it carries more weight and promotability these days. I know several professional women who had taken the caucasian hubby’s surname, usually retaining their maiden name as though it were a middle name, or in one case using it hyphenated Hisp-Cauc. These were marriages of 10+ years ago. As they climbed in their professional rankings, the hispanic name re-emerged, and the woman’s name was changed all over their social media.

    Actually I’ve read the same said about women in prison in the U.S., modern times, and there are thousands of examples there. The men they were associated with, boyfriends, husbands, etc., don’t visit them, generally. Women do visit men in prison. Don’t know for how long that goes on though.

    Could be. Just, there are other instances in history & culture where women had been following their men (the Decembrists wives of 1825 etc.).

    I am painfully aware of the overrepresentation of (secular, heretical, apostate) Jews in the championing and promotion of sexual degeneracy and dissolution. As an observant Jew myself, I am also familiar enough with (authentic) Judaism to know that the aforementioned perniciously-acting Jews act in spite and in direct defiance and violation of the religious tradition from which they descend (but have rejected and rebelled against).

    My comment about “(((certain))) influences” was an exercise in sarcasm. I was mocking those who at least imply that villainy, vice, dissolution and perfidy would be almost non-existent if not for the existence of Jews. In contradistinction to others who engage in such sarcasm and derision (many, if not most of them, at least), however, (and as demonstrated in many past comments I have posted) I do not summarily and reflexively dismiss criticism or even skepticism and suspicion of Jews as nothing more than irrational, hateful and reprehensible.

    (Note that my anti-Zionist comments are serious. I consider Zionism a Judaic heresy.)

  76. I wonder if she realizes that for the marketing algorithms to get her specific needs right she would have to cede far more information about herself online.

    The women who recently swam across the English Channel 4-times, Sarah Thomas, has joked (not written a lengthy opinion piece) about the baby stuff marketing she gets. She doesn’t have kids, but uses the high zinc based diaper rash cream, desitin as a very water proof sunscreen. The algorithms just assume she has kids for purchasing that product, lol.

    I was acquainted with a woman like this who worked as an accountant. Her setup was hyphenated Hispanic-Jewish.

    She’s now a Director at PwC.

    They know that all too well. It’s why they hold you in contempt. Maybe try sucking up less.

    Nah, publishing “controversial” (i. e. clueless) content to generate clicks is their core business model.

    Modern day Village Idiot/Bear Baiting.

    Yes, there isn’t enough nuance in some quarters.

    The tendency for Jews to side with the left has historically (since 1789) been a pretty classic case of out-group dynamics. Though as I see it two factors spawned the non-observant Frankfurt-School types you refer to: one is emancipation pushed to the point of social integration and even assimilation, and another is of course that the Cartesian worldview underlying all historical permutations of the left from liberalism to Marxism eventually crept in to corrode Jewish theological underpinnings as much as it had Christianity. In some cases sooner, in some cases later the weird society leftism produced had to become repellent to at least a notable minority of Jews as well.

    White Americans don’t read anythinng but their T.V Guide. Your attempt to try curtailing Latino immigrants on the grounds that they are not as intellectual as white Americans is pathetic.
