Why does feminism appear to be so important to so many people? For one thing, it’s the most lucrative possible ideology for a woman to promote. No other notion or culture can provide a woman with so much access to funds for so little effort.
There are a number of ways that women can access these funds, which may or may not be directly from the state and federal treasuries. One is by birthing bastards, and then applying for benefits. The next is by divorcing a husband who earns well. Given that both of these two strategies has suffered from depleting effectiveness in recent years, new innovations have to be drummed up to provide the duchesses and princesses their rightful due.
Every man knows that women hold the whip hand in the modern legal system. Those that think that they are exceptions due to whatever personal qualities that they might have often discover later on that their vanity was no match against the court system.
Challenging the new-found authority and status that women have in the public square will earn you righteous indignation. The older the woman, the more ferocious her opposition will be, because her entire legal standing, along with the way that she has structured her relationships, her sense of self, and her bearing are all impacted by her special privileges under the law.
This reveals something essential about humans: someone is always in charge. There is no such thing as a fully equal relationship, just as there is no equality between people as individuals. The rhetoric of feminism centers around achieving equality, but much like Communism requires enormous coercion in the hopes of bringing about a millennium, it is just the same with the new female-headed household.
In family court, there is no presumption of innocence. In general, the presumption is that the man is guilty. The penalties for failure to comply with the dictates of the court are often both civil and criminal. Women are, in general, quite happy with the idea of this arrangement, although the details of the implementation often leave a lot to be desired. It’s much easier to get a right to an income from your deposed spouse than it is to actually squeeze juice from that lemon.
In this, the educated girl at university mouthing feminist slogans is only practicing for her future profession as either a laborer, a legal plaintiff, or both. The enraged sense of entitlement only reaches full bloom in the courtroom, when it comes time for the ideas to be put into practice, for narrative to triumph over facts, logic, and truth, and to gain a fortune besides.
‘Beta’ men get a lot of flak for being doormats. They are simply creatures malformed by fear of superior power. The expectation is still there for them to behave as bourgeois men did in past times, without the legal or social standing that those bourgeois men enjoyed. In general, those men who still behave like the older style man do so upon the virtuous restraint on the part of their wives to not exercise their impressive legal powers. Most do not, because that sort of restraint is in short supply.
Serfs had a certain dignity to them, although they were considered good insomuch as they were loyal, pious, and hard-working. If they had pride, it was in their acceptance of their station, and good behavior as far as serfs go. People didn’t expect serfs to carry themselves as free men or nobles. They had lower legal status, lower status in reality, and their bearing reflected their status.
Similarly, the more civilized the man of today within a system that humbles even the greatest merchant-princes, the more deferential he is to women. The men who are not deferential are hounded out, finding themselves in the lower-status professions, or into banditry, which is to say, outside the magic circle of civilized life, bound together by law.
Sexual harassment laws and scurrilous circulation of e-mails and text messages encourage even leading men to be careful. This is because their rights are conditional upon whether or not a woman gets upset enough at them to raise a case. They can be revoked if she invents a story persuasive enough in a courtroom setting to at least result in a successful civil case. The rights of men are less absolute and more conditional upon the whims of a fully average woman of no special talent or virtue.
When the men cross that line separating the inside from the outside, the cooperative magic of the law loses its power, and there is nothing left but squabbling and fighting among rival powers. Ultimately, men are the fighters of the species. A weighty kick from a man can rupture an organ, but there’s only so much that a bite or scratch can do to the human body. It’s not a good idea to hound the strongest men in your civilization into a profound opposition.
If you say that you only want feeble men within your magic circle, don’t be too surprised if they prove incapable of maintaining it.
