Isn’t there any common sense in this world? If you are/were a man, you shouldn’t be allowed to compete in women’s sports, no matter how much weird surgeries and hormone treatments that you’ve had.
Also, we need to stop pretending that a man can become a woman and vice versa. People can only become freaks, not the other sex.
Commenters have been touting the extremely misleading statistic that early marriage has a higher likelihood of divorce, forgetting the rule not to confuse correlation with causation.
Higher social class people are less likely to get divorced. Higher social class people don’t marry before they are finished graduating from college, because it’s just not what their social class does.
Thus a marriage that takes place at an age prior to college graduation predicts low social class which in turn predicts a higher likelihood of divorce, but it’s not because they got married at an earlier age, it’s because they came from a bad pedigree in the first place.
Thomas More writes in the book Utopia (as translated by Paul Turner):
Any boy or girl convicted of premarital intercourse is severely punished, and permanently disqualified from marrying, unless this sentence is remitted by the Mayor. The man and woman in charge of the household in which it happens are also publicly disgraced, for not doing their jobs properly. The Utopians are particularly strict about that kind of thing, because they think very few people would want to get married – which means spending one’s whole life with the same person, and putting up with all the inconveniences that this involves – if they weren’t carefully prevented from having any sexual intercourse otherwise.
Thomas More would not have been surprised that, after the so-called sexual revolution, when the belief that premarital sex is sinful came to replaced with the belief that people who don’t have premarital sex are losers, the result would be a severe decline in marriage.
We have a lot sociologists today who are befuddled by the decline, but the relationship between premarital sex and the desire to get married was plain old common sense to a guy living in the early 1500s.

This scholarly research found a statistically significant difference in outcomes of hospitalized medicare patients depending on whether they were treated by a male or female physician.
The study then assumes that his must be because the women are better doctors than the men!
I think it’s more likely that patients were not randomly assigned to doctors, but rather when a patient seemed to be in very bad shape, that patient was more likely to be assigned to a male doctor who was viewed by the hospital staff as more competent than female doctors. (I’m not saying that the male doctors ARE more competent, but that gender bias, which is well documented by SJW-types, causes hospital staff to think so and that influences assignments.) Or perhaps the male doctors were more likely to self-assign themselves to the worst-off patients because they liked to challenge themselves.
Without an investigation into whether doctor assignments were random, this “research” is meaningless and bogus.
As a caveat, the study does talk about randomness of assignment, but they reach the easy conclusion that they are smart enough to determine that assignments are random merely based on the statistical dataset they were working with.
[A] survey of unmarried people aged 18 to 34 found that around 42 per cent of men and 44.2 per cent of single women had never had sex. … The last time the study was conducted in 2010, only 36.2 per cent of men and 38.7 percent of women said they were virgins.
That’s a lot different than the United States where virginity in that age group is so rare it can be considered deviant behavior.
I believe that HBD is responsible for the difference, and that the Japanese genotype is unable to deal with modern times which call for marriage being delayed until young people are finished with their education and have a career track. But don’t worry about the Japanese race dying out, what will happen is that natural selection will cause a vast increase in Japanese sex drive after a few generations like this. If you want to know what Japan will be like in two hundred years, you need to look at how the minority of Japanese who are actually having a lot of children differ from the rest of their society.
“A lot of girls are going to the more high-end clubs” like Tao, No. 8 and Marquee, which typically require stiff drink prices and steep covers, according to Gerlitz.
Young guys, meanwhile, gravitate toward no-cover bars — particularly those with cheaper drinks.
I guess that women in Manhattan don’t want to meet losers who can’t afford Tao.
Or one can read this as women are spendthrifts while men have a more future-time-oriented desire to save money for the future or a rainy day.
Was the 16-year-old boy a victim of a crime, or lucky?
I say, he’s a lot more fortunate than incel boys who graduate high school virgins in a culture that glorifies sexual experience and stigmatizes virginity.
Yakov writes in a comment:
When proles roast a pig, drink beer and dance salsa, there is nothing wrong with them. Why can you just be happy for them? I think roasting a pig is more fun then going to a Manhattan restaurant and acting all phony to impress a phony girl to have a phony relationship or phony encounter. Keep it real.
Also, to all the phonies – the women that like you are a reflection of who you are. They are your mirror image. So stop being phony and get real. So, say me now, who likes me? White proles but especially Hispanics and blacks. Why? Because I’ve acquired that successful prole persona. They like that. I’m friendly, cheerful and chat them up.
The downside of prole women is they tend to have lower IQ and are more likely to bring prole problems to a relationship, including good-for-nothing relatives and a greater likelihood for disruptive low-future-time-orientation behavior. Because of decline of marriage among proles, prole women are less likely to have internalized the belief that marriage is a commitment until death.
The chance of a marriage ending in divorce was lower for people with more education, with over half of marriages of those who did not complete high school having ended in divorce compared with approximately 30 percent of marriages of college graduates.
I suspect this trend will be even more pronounced going forward. Divorce rates are declining for the college educated. “Of college-educated people who married in the early 2000s, only about 11 percent divorced by their seventh anniversary.” If you could restrict that data to couples who both graduated from real colleges, I am sure you would find even lower divorce rate.
By the way, I strongly suspect that the finding that marriages at younger ages are more likely to end in a divorce is caused not by the age of the marriage but by the fact that upper-class people don’t get married until after they graduate from college, so when you look at young-age marriages you are primarily looking at proles, and proles have a higher divorce rate.

If you are a man who wants to dip into the pool of prole women, my advice is restrict yourself to prole women whose parents are married to each other.
See the previous post: Game in St. Elmo’s Fire, part 1 (the alphas)
As explained in the previous post, Andrew McCarthy and Emilio Estevez play beta-male characters (Kevin and Kirby). Both of these characters suffer from what “game” experts call “oneitis.” Now I’m not a game expert, but I will try to explain the movie from the “game” point of view.
Oneitis is the term used to describe a condition where a man becomes infatuated and obsessed with one single female. He is so hung up on her that he spends each and every day thinking about her and what she is doing. He will do anything and everything to be with or around her whenever he can. Oneitis can be extremely dangerous to a man’s mental health. He will pass up on girls who come his way waiting for this one “extra special” girl. The thing that make oneitis so sad is the self sabotage that will take place from spending so much mental energy trying to get “the one”. Usually oneitis is pretty one sided. Typically the girl does not want anything to do with the man who is pursuing her in a romantic sense. And this makes it pretty hard on the guy when all of his efforts of ‘wooing’ this particular female go unnoticed and result in failure time and time again.
Some other sites compare oneitis to a disease or mental disorder, and the cure is often said to be FTOW which stands for “fuck ten other women.” (“Game” sites often use vulgar language to make their point.) It does seem logical that after having sex with ten women, the psychological result would be that (1) no single woman seems special after that; and (2) the man has the confidence that he can have sex with number 11 or number 12 if he wanted to so is far less likely to feel dependent or needy with a single woman.
The “cure” however brings with it the sadness that the woman who the man eventually marries will also never seem special to him. I suspect that marriages were a lot happier back in the day when both the man and the woman were virgins on their wedding day. A Vietnamese girl who never had sex with anyone besides her husband said that her husband was very good at sex. One suspects that if she had the experience of sex with an alpha bad-boy like Rob Lowe, then she might have gone through the rest of her life not thinking that sex with her husband was great, which is very sad: which is why I view Rob Lowe’s deflowering of Mare Winningham at the end of the movie as a very unfortunate thing for her character. Thus I am genuinely happy for the Vietnamese girl who was so satisfied with here beta-male provider husband (whom I never met).
The other problem with the “cure” is that the reason why betas are beta in the first place and thus susceptible to oneitis is because they don’t have the opportunity to have sex with women. So the “cure” is a Catch 22 situation.
The Andrew McCarthy storyline
McCarthy’s character is cynical about the world, and he uses a lot on self-deprecating humor, both beta traits. Alphas are optimistic and rarely use self-deprecating humor. Judd Nelson’s character is way too full of himself to ever say anything self-deprecating.
Andrew McCarthy has oneitis for Ally Sheedy and because of that he doesn’t have sex with other women. At least that’s what he tells himself. We don’t see in the movie that he has any opportunity to have sex with women except for a black prostitute who thinks he’s gay because she never sees him with a girlfriend. Demi Moore thinks he’s gay because he “never made a pass at her,” although possibly the reason that never happened is simply because he was too shy.
Remember that back in the 1980s, it was a big insult for a straight man to be thought of as gay. This was before the 2001 French movie Le Placard in which the main character, a divorced heterosexual man pretends to be gay so his company won’t fire him, and his whole life becomes a lot better after people start thinking he’s gay. Women who ignored him when he was straight now want to be his friend. His estranged son suddenly starts thinking he’s cool. Even though, at the end of the movie, he comes out of the closet as being straight, he retains his improved social status because the experience of being respected as a gay man gave him a lot of self confidence which he lacked before.
The other characters in the movie give McCarthy solid advice to have sex with women (the same advice that Roissy would no doubt give him), but he is unable to follow the advice.
The movie shows that even the best possible out come from McCarthy’s oneitis is still not a very good outcome. Yes, McCarthy got to have one night of sex with Ally Sheedy. After Judd Nelson (who has the very opposite of oneitis) throws a temper trantrum and tells Sheedy to get out of the apartment after she brings up the fact that he has been cheating on her (what an asshole! But women prefer asshole alphas to betas) she goes home with her friend McCarthy and it leads to sex. Very awkward looking sex at first, until they break the shower door. The vidcap above is from right after the shower door breaks. Which was a genuine accident in filming and not the original intent of the scene, but it worked.
(I really liked how the sex scene started out awkward. Being that McCarthy is an inexperienced beta male, it’s more realistic than it starting out perfectly hot and steamy.)
After the one night of sex, McCarthy now thinks they can finally be in a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship. But it turns out that Ally Sheedy viewed the sex as just a way to “break away from Alec” and she puts him right back into the friend zone. In response to McCarthy’s needy behavior, Sheedy says “I just wish everything could be like it used to be. All of us friends” And no doubt it was meant sincerely, but without any regard for how it felt for McCarthy to be friends with her for years while watching her reward Judd Nelson, the serial cheater, instead of McCarthy who deserved her affections for being a nice guy. So McCarthy says with exasperation, “I don’t want to be friends.” Of course that really annoys the hell out of Sheedy. Oops. Get lost McCarthy. “I would really like it if you would just leave. OK?”
I felt really bad for McCarthy, but I suspect that most women watching the scene would think he deserved what he got for feeling “entitled” or something like that. As the blogger “Whiskey” would say, women hate, hate, hate beta males.
