Book Review: Men on Strike

MEN ON STRIKE
Dr. Helen Smith
Rating: 8 of 10


With the publication of Men on Strike, Dr. Helen Smith fires an important shot in the ongoing cultural war for the soul, and indeed, the survival, of Western Civilization.  It is a shot she fires in defense of the defenders, in defense of the barricades, in defense of the gates, against the lawless barbarians marching under the banner of the Female Imperative.

If the horror stories and red pill realities she chronicles will not be unfamiliar to those who are regular readers of the androsphere, they are nevertheless particularly effective when presented, largely dispassionately, one after another in succession.  Dr. Helen does an competent job of drawing clear links between a legal regime biased towards women and the fearful behavior of men who no longer see sufficient incentive to perform the roles that society has long expected and required of them.

Men on Strike is particularly effective when pointing out the shameless hypocrisy of feminist activism, and how the voices that are quick to appeal to equality when it benefits women are completely silent when it is the male sex that is getting the short side of the stick.  And it raises what is arguably the most important question of all: how can a society which actively disincentivizes men to marry, father children, and produce the economic surplus required to support women and children expect to survive, let alone thrive?

Dr. Helen begins the book with considering the question of why men are increasingly reluctant to marry, as evidenced by both national statistics and personal anecdotes. She continues with a presentation of the hypocrisy of the present legal approach to children and parenting, then moves on to the recent inversion of the male/female ratio of college attendance.  After considering the way marriage has changed in recent decades, she then explains why these changes matter, and devotes the final chapter to considering whether men are best advised to continue simply opting out of society or attempting to fight back.

While much of the evidence is anecdotal, it must be noted that the anecdotal evidence is largely presented in an explanatory sense and is primarily used to support the statistical evidence.  As such, it is much more valid than anecdotal evidence cited in support of hypothetical trends.

Possibly the best thing about Men on Strike is that at no point does Dr. Helen attempt to speak for men or tell men what they should do.  She is quite clearly cognizant of the fact that she is speaking out in support of men, she is attempting to encourage them to speak out themselves rather than to speak for them.

Unlike other books that purport to be concerned about the societal degradation of men, Dr. Helen's book is not driven by the Female Imperative.  She is aware that the degradation of men is not likely to serve women well in the long run, but she also opposes that legal and social degradation in its own right.  In her words: "I propose that men are autonomous beings who are entitled to justice and equality and the pursuit of their own happiness because they are human beings in a supposedly free society."

Dr. Helen's book is both courageous and important because it is written by a woman. It cannot be dismissed as male whining or a parthian shot by the Patriarchy, and it is rhetorically effective because it breaks the Pink Code of Silence and shames those women who, in the name of equality, have pursued an inequality more oppressive and deadly than has been personally experienced by any woman of the West.  It will be a valuable resource for anyone, male or female, who cares about the fate of men or the fate of Western civilization.

Text sample:  Our society, the media, the government, women, white knights and Uncle Tims have regulated and demanded that any incentives men have for acting like men be taken away and decried masculinity as evil. Now they are seeing the result. Men have been listening to what society has been saying about them for more than forty years; they are perverts, wimps, cowards, assholes, jerks, good-for-nothing, bumbling deadbeats and expendable. Men got the message; now they are acting accordingly. As you sow, so shall you reap.

So now people are surprised when men are heading for the exits? They shouldn’t be surprised. Men have been pushed there for some time. We should actually be surprised that it has taken so long.


The Concordia is just a microcosm of what is happening in our greater society. Men are opting out, bailing out and going on strike in response to the attack on their gender; a society can’t spend more than forty years tearing down almost half of the population and expect them to respond with “give me another” forever. Pretty soon, a lot more men will be taking Captain Schettino’s lead and jumping ship—only it will be on a lot larger scale than a boatload of people. The war on men is suicidal for our society in so many ways, and treating men like the enemy is dangerous, both to men and to the society that needs their positive participation as fathers, husbands, role models and leaders.

NB: In the interest of full disclosure, it should be noted that in the first chapter of the book, Dr. Helen refers to the socio-sexual hierarchy I developed from Roissy's sexual hierarchy.

I don't know if the Concordia disaster is the best example. After all the harbourmaster did shame him into returning to his duty. Maybe that is what Western man needs. We need to be shamed back to protecting the civilization we built regardless of the caterwauling of a few fanatical feminists.

Whats funny about the whole thing is that most of us are happy to not have the role of head of household anymore. We get laid when we can, work a chill job, and get rid of a woman if it doesn't work out... not having to support her when she is older and less attractive. Thanks feminism!

One may take as advisory a culture that has marginalized the female half of its population - predatory Islam. One that has marginalized the male half will have made itself prey. If the imagination is blind to that dynamic, see England (bi-cultural sexual grooming) and Sweden-Norway (bi-cultural rape epidemic). Invest in pepper spray ladies - better still, outlawed .9 mm, best of all, outlawed men.

I doubt it's most men, but certainly a sizable minority.

So much for marriage being an oppressive-to-women institution. Listen to the Dr. Laura show sometime to see examples of what Marky Mark is talking about and how ridiculous the idea of traditional marriage being oppressive to women is. A young broad called in the other day wondering what she could do to motivate her live-in stud to do his share. She was shacking up with this dude, giving him free sex, working a full-time job to pay her share of the bills, and picking up the slack with the rent after he quit his job to stay home and play video games all day. This guy had it made in the shade. Dr. Laura ripped her a new one, and said that at least prostitutes get paid for servicing a guy, and here she was essentially paying him. Is there any doubt this guy will dump her as soon as she becomes inconvenient or a better model comes along? Sure, there's Female Imperative, but in reality how are women any better off in this scenario, which they've constructed from the ashes of the institution they effectively burned down?

It should be obvious by now that marriage protects women. I guess that's one irony men can savor, however bitterly: feminism has ultimately gotten women exactly the opposite of what they ostensibly wanted. And all it cost was civilization.

Josh said...

And yes, it's probably better for marky mark not to marry, unless he's a Christian. But that doesn't mean it's good for society (or even for individual men in the long run)

Doubtful...I'd certainly bet against it especially since she continues to regress back in the Blue Pill direction and the Female Imperative. As an aside question...Vox...I'm curious if you mean something materially different with your use of Female Imperative versus Rollo's use of Feminine Imperative. I know sometime back there was a debate involving Dalrock and Social Pathologist as to the existence of a "feminine imperative". I'd be interested to get your take on what exactly you mean by Female Imperative.

Back to the question above, Susan's official position is there is no marriage strike or man strike especially amongst Millennial men who she maintains want marriage and family *MORE* than their Millennial women counterparts.

"Be careful what you wish for, you might just get it".

Just thinking out loud here, but it occurs to me I can't think of many female Chess grandmasters, and I wonder if it is because the female brain might be more wired to be in the moment rather than think several steps ahead as to what the consequences of certain decisions will be especially in terms of the likely reactions from others. Whether sexual liberation/empowerment, joining the workforce en masse, or higher rates of initiated divorce, it seems to me the common factor is a complete inability to anticipate the likely eventual male response. Many of the female complaints...."he won't commit", "he won't do his share of the housework now that I work full-time", etc. all seem to stem from failing to understand how men would behave in the face of a different incentive structure.

Perhaps the newest development on this front which is something Bastiat Blogger highlighted on HUS is men desiring wives who are also high earners and who will work and not be SAHM wives. That way, in the event of a "I'm not haaaapppy" divorce you have a more equitable split of financial assets. Of course, raising children, working full-time, and still keeping house to the higher standard that women generally want compared to men should be a recipe for increased happiness for women

That's only a very small subset of men and women who have that option.

That's exactly my point... there is NOTHING in it for men and regarding civilization... that's not my personal problem. It is funny that what women wanted ended up screwing them over. BTW I am agnostic.

Re Susan Walsh, her continued regression back to the blue pill is nothing short of remarkable. She denies the existence of the apex fallacy, insisting that if a woman is getting with a man or is dating him or married to him, well, she must be attracted to him! She says she is just not seeing women getting with men they aren't attracted to.

The question at hand, though, is whether there is a "men on strike" issue or a "marriage strike". I don't really see it, because the stats are showing at least in the U.S. that most people are still getting married. Dalrock has done yeoman's work on this.

-- Something on the order of 90% of women have been married at least once by age 40.

-- about 80% of women are married by age 35.

-- the average age at first marriage is creeping upward and has been for about 30 years.

I can only surmise that the primary reason most of the men marrying these women are doing so for one reason: to lock in a sex partner. Most men are not attractive and cannot live the player lifestyle. Their options are severely limited. The vast majority of men will never be anything like cads or players. And most men do not want to live in celibacy.

Whatever is happening, though, is happening very, very slowly, and has been for a long time. And all this is going to continue for a long time, probably for at least the next 30 to 50 years or so, barring a cataclysmic event of some kind.

I suspect what we'll see is:

-- the birth rate continuing to crater well below replacement
-- more and more MGTOW, never-married men (slowly increasing)
-- increasing numbers of never married women
-- the divorce rate to creep up and hold steady above 50 percent
-- more and more women marrying men clearly beneath them in socioeconomic status
-- fewer and fewer second marriages after termination of first marriage through divorce or widowhood

The problem is, it's cr*p. Men are still working like slaves. They have simply lowered the frenzied and lunatic work loads a very very very small amount. They demand far less than any man with any self respect would demand and are willing to settle for less.

They just aren't quite as frenzied as they used to be in their efforts to please.

Aeoli Pera said...

Josh,

Careful with your stereotypes on agnosticism. While I was trawling the NLSY 1997 I was shocked to find that agnostics are extremely over-represented in the >2SD crowd:

"NLSY 1997, 9,022 youths were tested with ASVAB, 123 scored in the 98th percentile or higher (2SD+).

7 self-identified as atheists. 63 self-identified as theists. 9:1 ratio.

(Agnostics took 16 of the remaining spots. 20 answered "personal philosophy". 1 said "don't know". The remainder were not interviewed about their religious preference.)"

Only 357 of the sample (9,022) self-identified as agnostic.

whatever said...

For example, wise old man starts lecturing a young'n on why he can't expect this or that just because he has a college degree.

A man with self-respect asks:
"Wise old man, didn't you tell me that if I got a college degree I would get this or that?"

The wise old man responds with some nonsense.

A man with self-respect then says:
"If you were wrong once and I wasted four years of my life because you are an idiot and I listened to you, then why am I listening to you now, wise old man?"

Then the Wise Old Man starts mouthing off and the man with self-respect walks off. Conversation over.

His Lordship often says that the dropping-out of men is just Nature's way of cleansing the gene pool; those who are unfit don't reproduce, same as always.

And this is just another reason why I'm not going to help you dudes. You can "sort yourselves out" just fine by yourselves; you're already doing it.

Jack Amok said...

Nah, what men need to be shamed back into is behaving like men. MarkyMark's comment about leeching off of society as a response is a perfect example of shameful behavior. Doubly-shameful actually. One, he's not contributing shit to the world around him while taking from it, and two, he has the gall to justify his behavior because somebody else is being unfair.

He's a creature of the Female Imperative just as much as Leena Dunham is. Both deserve contempt.

We're in a post-civilized phase right now. Our old civilization is done, we've gone past the point of recovering it. There will be a train wreck (we're in the middle of it right now in fact). Afterwards, somebody will build a new civilization on top of the wreckage. It won't be Feminists or their pet dildos who build it.

It'll be built by men who are able to triumph over adversity rather than run from it.

The real danger highlighted by Dr. Helen's book is that we're training far too many men to run from adversity. We've created an environment with too much negative feedback and not enough opportunities for men to have the small triumphs that give them the confidence to tackle larger challenges.

The danger is that will leave us without a critical mass of men who can rebuild our civilization. Without that, it will be someone else's civilization that builds upon our rubble.

Sigyn, not all of the men dropping out are genetic rejects. I have a friend who is intelligent, fit, good looking, and is actually interesting and competent in conversation. He has women sighing after him, to the point that he has actually complained about women bothering him. We were talking, and the subject of women and marriage, and he told me that he can take care of himself just fine, why would he need a wife? It is not only the lowest tier of men walking out. Some of them are high quality, and it is a loss to the species to see them go. I know several others with the same mentality, and my job requires high intelligence. These smart, motivated young men have gotten a look and are willing to cad about or just wander away rather than marry.

Selection pressures are only positive if they are selecting against negative traits. When intelligent men are washing out, that is a problem. Idiocracies burn themselves out in an ever deepening spiral of poor choices and fool voices.

However, I agree that some of the changes are positive. Sometime you need to rake the leaves out of the gene pool, and pour in some chlorine.

You keep talking about intelligence like it correlates to the ability to make good decisions, when they're really two very different things. Obviously, we should breed for prudence and future-orientation; that's why it's good that so many of these GTOW-oriented "smart" guys are removing themselves. They have no future orientation and they're wildly unrealistic in their expectations.

I have a friend who is intelligent, fit, good looking, and is actually interesting and competent in conversation. He has women sighing after him, to the point that he has actually complained about women bothering him. We were talking, and the subject of women and marriage, and he told me that he can take care of himself just fine, why would he need a wife?

Does it occur to you that he might be gay? I don't know that many straight men who are annoyed by female attention.

These smart, motivated young men have gotten a look and are willing to cad about or just wander away rather than marry.

Sociopathy is another thing we want to eliminate, wouldn't you say? So, that's a good thing.

Selection pressures are only positive if they are selecting against negative traits.

An inability/unwillingness to breed is a negative trait.

When intelligent men are washing out, that is a problem.

Not really. Excessively high intelligence is a negative trait, just like excessively low intelligence. Both tend to interfere with making solid, practical decisions. And right now, we need solid, practical, decisive men.

Idiocracies burn themselves out in an ever deepening spiral of poor choices and fool voices.

Does it occur to you that this is because allegedly "intelligent" people make poor choices and are talking like fools? The whole leftward drift of society was based on the notion that "smart people should rule" (see, for instance, Woodrow Wilson). So you guys want to cause the collapse and then run away while the rest of us are stuck with the mess you left?

Nope, you guys are a genetic dead-end, both in practice (refusal to breed) and in theory (behave in community-destroying ways). We'd be better served with more solid, reliable, average men who don't get funny ideas than with bunches of extreme-IQ misfits who think they're owed a voice in the conversation just because "I'm so smart, S-M-R-T!"

God, it's just like feminists. You think you're entitled.

@Deti

I think there is a marriage strike. But it's not necessarily by young men. It's by young women in their 20's who want education, career and fun over other priorities. Look at how the radfems and just plain feminists have shamed women out of wanting relationships and needing to be loyal to the career-minded feminist herd.

See this article, for example:

www.theatlantic.com/sexes/archive/2013/03/women-in-their-20s-shouldnt-feel-bad-about-wanting-a-boyfriend/273737/

Now, I think that there may start to be a marriage strike to a certain extent by those single men that hit 30+ (plus some divorced men who say never again).

The age of first marriage has slowly risen but look at Dalrock's charts and how the never married white female percentage really took a greater leap up, rising from 39% in 2007 to 47.5% in 2012 for 25-29 y/o white females, from 18.5% to 25.1% for 30-34 y/o wf's, and from 11.4% to 15.4% for 35-39 y/o wf's.

http://dalrock.wordpress.com/2012/11/24/more-grim-news-for-carousellers-hoping-to-jump-at-the-last-minute/

The fascinating thing is that the rise in never married white females coincided more or less with the rise of the manosphere. I think something may be up that only really started to happen in mass over the last 5 years (though it was slowly building beforehand).

Han Solo:

Yeah, there is a significant bump up in never married women. But it's too early to tell if that is going to be significant or if the trend will continue.

I agree that if there is a "strike", women are driving it and men are responding to it. The MSM paints it as a male-driven phenomenon but I don't think it is. I agree women are putting off marriage until later and later. What I find surprising is that most of them are still finding men to marry. Granted, almost certainly the men they are marrying are not of the caliber they could have had had they married earlier. And this, I think, is a major source of many women's disappointments. Because the men they really want -- the alphas a year or three older -- are married to younger, hotter, tighter women, or will not offer commitment because they don't have to trade commitment for sex.

@Deti

My response to some of your comments. I agree with some of your comments and disagree with others but am not trying to be a dick in pointing out the disagreements:

"-- Something on the order of 90% of women have been married at least once by age 40."

This is a backward looking statistic (as all stats of things that happened are by definition) to an era when more people got married. See my previous comment about what is happening with the younger cohorts and the rather dramatic rise in the never married wf's from 2007-2012.

"I can only surmise that the primary reason most of the men marrying these women are doing so for one reason: to lock in a sex partner. Most men are not attractive and cannot live the player lifestyle. Their options are severely limited. The vast majority of men will never be anything like cads or players. And most men do not want to live in celibacy."

I agree with this. I think that a lot of men will still end up marrying to get the steady sex partner but a lot of them are less enthusiastic to get a 35 y/o wife on the downward beauty trend as opposed to one at or near her peak with a lot of good years ahead at 20-25.

"Whatever is happening, though, is happening very, very slowly, and has been for a long time. And all this is going to continue for a long time, probably for at least the next 30 to 50 years or so, barring a cataclysmic event of some kind."

See the Dalrock link again for the rapid rise from 2007-2012.

"I suspect what we'll see is:
-- more and more MGTOW, never-married men (slowly increasing)"

I agree with this. For so long women thought that betas (in their various Vox flavors) and lower alphas would always just be there to have them when they were ready for marriage, even though they were no longer availing themselves for marriage as much during their prime-female-value years. The female herd calls the shots for most men and men are slow to react but they are finally starting to (slowly) realize that they've been rejected and treated poorly and will not just "be there" for women to marry as much anymore. Until the misandry is healed in society, more and more men (though likely still a minority) will check out from signing up for a raw deal and will spend more time pursuing casual sex with lower value women that they can attract.

"-- increasing numbers of never married women"

I also agree with this. It will be interesting to see if the sharp uptrend in never-marrieds from 2007-12 continues and for how long. I think there is and will be some reaction by young women to realize that they need to pursue marriage earlier while they're at their top value. But there will also be inertia in men who have adapted to a more player or MGTOW mindset and so there won't just be as many men as before waiting on bended knee with ring in hand for the women to come back from their fun and career focus.

Thoughts?

HanSolo said...

@Deti, further response

"-- the divorce rate to creep up and hold steady above 50 percent"

I'm not sure about this. The divorce rate peaked at around 40% and seems like the eventual divorce rate for the gen y and x cohort will be more in the 30-35% range. Part of this is due to the fact that many people who would make poor marriage partners aren't getting married anymore and simply cohabiting, which has higher break-up rates. So, the overall picture isn't really getting better if you include both, but it's not getting worse either.

"-- more and more women marrying men clearly beneath them in socioeconomic status"

In today's society where men are marginalized in school and university, women are starting to earn more and more. I believe amongst single younger women they actually earn a bit more than men now.

With the divorce laws such that you split acquired assets roughly equally then it makes sense for men to seek higher-earning women and not kill themselves as much to earn a lot. Of course, a lot of other factors are in play but I personally am leary of marrying someone that doesn't make at least high 5-figures since I don't want there to be a big divorce prize sitting there as an incentive (however small) to tempt her.

"-- fewer and fewer second marriages after termination of first marriage through divorce or widowhood"

I agree with this. Once burnt, men (and women with abusive husbands too) will not want to tempt fate again as much.

HanSolo said...

@Sigyn

Many of the women dropping out are psychologically unfit to reproduce. And the men that drop out can always get back in the reproductive game later (except for some of the vasectomy dudes).

HanSolo said...

@Deti

I think that the women waiting to marry til their mid 30's or later are really putting themselves in a bind since they have such little bargaining power anymore. You can also see that in the Dalrock stats how only 1/6 30-34 y/o wf's in 2007 married by 2012 when they moved into the 35-39 y/o cohort.

So, by having this big cohort of late 20's women put off marriage they put themselves into more dangerous waters where their attractiveness and ability to attract a husband have declined.

Whether intentional or not, the focus of feminists on getting women to delay marriage during their most attractive and fertile years really serves the feminist imperative of pushing and keeping more women in the work place.

First of all, if they delay marriage (and hence, kids) they work longer and get more education which raises the collective female power careerwise.

Then by having them delay the search until their less attractive, fewer of them will be able to marry. Those that don't marry will continue to work and enhance feminist goals.

Those that do marry late will be less likely to have more than a kid or two and some will have none and so with few or no kids, what do the women do? They work more, thus furthering the feminist goal of achieving economic, career and political power.

Re the stats for ever-married women at ages 35 and 40: yes, they are backward looking. And they are also a snapshot of women who have ever been married at any time. So it includes women currently married, divorced, and widowed. It's just a statistic showing the percentage of women who were able to find someone willing to marry her and they got married. The point is that a woman who wants to get married can, for the time being, find a man who wants to marry her. The issue is whether she is attracted to the pool of men willing to marry her.

As for the rapid rise in never married women: when I say that all this is happening slowly, what I mean is that I suspect the pattern of behavior we're seeing in marriage is going to continue on its present course and that any change we see will happen slowly. IOW, i think the age of first marriage will continue creeping up for men and women. I think most women will still be able to find men to marry them even at 30, 33, 35, and 40, and I think that will continue for at least a few decades. The women are making the men wait; and for the most part, the men are waiting. The number of men willing to wait is decreasing, though, albeit slowly. For the time being, most divorced men will remarry (though that figure will decrease slowly).

Okay, I see your overall point. I just wanted to point out that the sharper rise in the 25-39 y/o never married rate over the last 5 years was a trend worth noting, and that there will be carry-over effects for the women choosing to marry later since we see by Dalrock's presentation that only small %'s of women in the older cohorts marry by 5 years later (2007 to 2012).

This will definitely be an interesting trend to see if the slope stays the same or changes as each new year's data (2013, 14, 15, etc.) comes out.

At some point I suppose the current steep slope of the last 5 years will flatten out somewhat since I don't expect to ever get to a 100% never-married rate for 25-29 y/o wf's.

@ Han:

RE the divorce rate creeping up and holding steady above 50% nationwide: You might be right about this. Generally the upper middle class and upper classes get married and stay married because those in these classes who divorce take a big status hit. And these are the people who are most suited to marriage (higher future time orientation and maturity, more access to resources) but ironically can best absorb the financial consequences of divorce.

Those who are the worst marriage prospects (the underclass, the working poor and the lower middle classes) are as you say increasingly not marrying. But, my conclusion of an increasing overall divorce rate was that the incentive for these groups to divorce (if they marry) is greater than ever. They simply don't have to stay married and have no real reason to; and probably shouldn't have married in the first place.

You're going to see a lot more alternative arrangements to marriage: including covenant marriage and cohabitation (i.e. common law marriage). Many states abolished common law marriage; but to protect the female imperative I think you'll see the law catch up to this and many states will probably reinstate it. The female imperative will not stand for men attempting to circumvent "obligations" to women they have sex with or shack up with or become baby daddies to.

(Common law marriage was a legal doctrine which essentially said that "If it walks, looks and quacks like a duck, then it's a duck." In other words, if a man and woman are living together and holding themselves out to the public as husband and wife for a specified period of time (usually at least 5 years), then for all intents and purposes the law will treat them as if they had a full statutory legal marriage.)

Another thing to consider re a rising divorce rate: The broad swathed "middle class" or "middle middle class" is starting to see an uptick in divorces, I think. So I suspect that the trends in higher divorce rates among the classes below the MMC are moving up into the MMC as the MMC lifestyle and culture (1) disappears due to economic trends and (2) mimics the lifestyle and culture of the classes below it.

deti, I think economic collapse will push a big reset button on all this. Our current institutions are all wobbling and very few have the stability or strength to survive the economic shocks that are at this point unavoidable. Within the next decade, 15 years at the longest, we will see a dramatic change in political power.

I don't know what exactly we will have on the other side of that change, but I'm pretty sure Feminism will not be a major player in it.

Sigyn said...

Many of the women dropping out are psychologically unfit to reproduce.

Absolutely. Bitches be crazy. So those who were too weak to resist the conditioning die out, and we're all stronger. Of course, this means that the parasites will meet with fewer willing hosts, but that's the Circle of Life.

And the men that drop out can always get back in the reproductive game later (except for some of the vasectomy dudes).

@ deti

The marriage rate is declining quite rapidly, if you look at the latest cohorts. Within the past five years alone, the percent of women in their late 20s who were married decreased by ~8%. This is massive when one considers how even a small change in ratios can heavily skew such a market. This change will cascade onwards, as older women have to increasingly compete with younger women.

http://monogamygame.wordpress.com/2013/04/28/catastrophic-decline-of-marriage/

As for divorce rates, they're probably going to hold steady at around 50%. It's too early to tell what the eventual divorce rates for today's couples will be, but the latest 10 year separation rate is 30-35%.

@Deti

I had a big debate at HUS with megaman about divorce rates. When you look at the census rates of ever divorced divided by ever married you get about 40% for boomers. The younger cohorts came in lower, in part because they haven't had time to reach their eventual-divorce rate but by looking at another study that compared divorce rates in 2010 with 1990 you could see that late gen-x and gen-y divorce rates were lower than the boomers when at the same age 20 years earlier, implying, if all else were equal (which it's not since people marry later now) that the eventual divorce rates will be somewhat lower for late gen-x and gen-y, I would guess somewhere in the 35% level. If you're really curious I can show you the links but I don't really want to get into a long discussion on divorce projections.

The bottom line is that the 50% rate often quoted is erroneous because they just took divorces in one year divided by marriage in one year, instead of figuring out the lifetime rate of divorce, which turns out to be about 40% for boomers and likely a bit lower for gen-x and y but, who knows, time will tell.

HanSolo said...

@Deti

This all came about because megaman was claiming that frivolous divorce could be no more than 5% of all men. However, he was being misleading by taking all "men" 15 y/o and older as the denominator (1/3 of whom had never even been married yet) and using ever-divorced (and by definition, only those that had married at least once) as the numerator. He was comparing apples and oranges. On top of this, he assumed, IMO, too high a rate of bad male behavior causing divorce.

I pointed out that including teen boys and other men who had never been married in order to make the phenomenon smaller was misleading, that the focus should be only on men who had married. This, of course, made the denominator smaller by 1/3, raising the overall estimate by 50%.

And then if you look at the eventual divorce rate (to allow time for some of those who have been married a short time to divorce) instead of of just those who are currently ever divorced then it raised the rate even further. So, instead of a 5% upper limit, it was more like a 9% upper limit of all men who had married and lived long enough for most of their likelihood of divorce to have happened. This all taking at face value his other assumptions, which were questionable.

Those numbers were based on him assuming that 8/13 or more of female-initiated divorces were based on bad male behavior, something I disagreed with.

A more reasonable assumption, that only 1/2 the female-initiated divorces were due to bad male behavior (and so, not frivolous) would lead to a 12% rate of ever-married men being frivorced, eventually.

Other assumptions could drive the rate even higher, upwards of 20% of all ever-married men.

My best estimate was somewhere in the 12-15% of all ever-married men would ever be divorced due to bad wife behavior (either frivolous reasons or outright cheating, etc. on her part), with 10-20% seeming like good lower and upper limits.

Or, another way of looking at it would be that anywhere from 25% to 50% of divorces would be due to bad/frivolous wife behavior and the rest due to mutually bad behavior or frivolity as a middle ground or outright bad/frivolous husband behavior.

HanSolo said...

@Deti and INTJ

I will add that the boomers still have a bit of time to further divorce so maybe it will inch up from 40% to 42% or so by the time they are all gone.

Sigyn, consider this point of view: the entirety of our society is involved in exploiting some of these men, either with action or by silent consent. You direct your government and choose its officers and its marching orders. Saying that someone is mentally damaged because they have been intentionally abandoned by the society at large strips their concerns of merit. It allows you to ignore their concerns. It is an aesthetic solution, not a practical one.

Having no concern for the well being of Islamist terrorists does not make me a sociopath. In the same way, having that lack of concern extend to American citizens is not the cause of effect of a personality disorder. It is the rational response to abuse.

A man who does not feed his family because he carelessly burned himself on the stove is acting irresponsibly. A man who does not feed his family because his family holds his hand to the flame whenever he enters the kitchen is being prudent. No, instead he says cook or starve.

Correction to the previous post: your* society, not our society.

It is the difference between being exploited by the most vile and decadent society that has ever existed--one that would shock Nero and Caligula--and voluntarily serving a more honorable and moral society. Pledging my service is not submitting to slavery, something you seem unable to understand. Emergency services and medical personnel *service* the community, and by doing so, strengthen it. They are not slaves, even though they serve. Slaves are property, however valuable they may be. Servants are free men. I choose to serve, to acknowledge something else as greater than myself.

As far as the complaint that MGTOW are tearing down your society, that is the point. Feature, not bug, and the like. Your people have been building on the backs of the dead, and bone is not a good foundation. Your society is *built* on and out of destruction, an abomination of blood and dust. The best thing that could happen to it would be to collapse into the pit of its own making. Destruction is part of the cycle of civilization, and your final hour is fast approaching.

The profound intelligence that you mock allows me options and opportunities most men will never know. I am not perfect, but I am a lot closer than many others. That is why I am abandoning the people that tend to burn those they need the most.

Deti, sounds like we're about the same age. I graduated HS in 84. Yes, the economy has been wobbly for a while (I'd say more like 40 years, I grew up in a logging town and the Carter years were pretty brutal). But the US started the 70's with massive capital reserves, and I don't mean money, I mean infrastructure, capacity, workforce skill.

We had a huge manufacturing base, excellent transportation network (road, rail and marine), energy production and distribution, water supply, skilled workers to run and repair everything. Plus most of the rest of the world figured we were a safe place to invest their own surplus, so we could tap into all of that.

Most of that can-kicking involved burning through all that, including the confidence other countries had in us. We don't have much cushion left. The outright deposit theft going on in Europe is one of the signs of that. Within 15 years, we will have gone essentially the entire span of an adult's working life drawing down on our reserves and not replenishing anything.

You go broke slowly at first, then all at once. All at once is coming.

Well, maybe we have different ideas of leeching, but the society Marky and the Feminists are busy under-maintaining didn't just happen, and won't just spontaneously recreate itself. It's going to take people, sorry, let me be more accurate - it's going to take men to make it all work again.

Otherwise, my grandkids will be enslaved by some other crapass civilization, and I don't want that.

So I need allies who didn't look at adversity and decide "working a chill job" was the right way to deal with it.

Men aren't dropping out of the gene pool; they are merely not sticking around afterwards. Certain types of men are, in fact, doing very well for themselves genetically.

But to be that sort of man, one must be the sort of person who finds the cracks in the rules, and exploits them mercilessly. Is that the sort of person you want as the father of your children?

With the freedom young women have, things are pretty bad for the AFC these days, but that cat is never going back in the bag, at least not until Islam takes over. In the meantime, you AFCs, especially you bible thumping AFCs, have been given an opportunity: the opportunity to learn to understand women. The opportunity has always been there, but the incentives have not. What has changed is simply that. If you do not make the effort to understand them, you won't be able to get laid. It's as simple as that. Bellyaching that you don't have a societal mandate to chain your wife to the kitchen stove and use her as a baby making factory or for your own personal pleasure whenever you want just isn't going to help. Despite all the economic and civilizational disaster porn you guys like to project to each other, what really is going to happen is that men who remain clueless AFCs will be used as beasts of burden to uphold a living standard for women and for the men who can learn to overcome the present difficulties, by coming to understand women and use them to their advantage. The blueprint has even been provided (Game) but some men seem almost congenitally incapable of stepping outside themselves and seeing what needs to be seen. No matter, they will be the pack mules of the future, turning the gears and blowing their paychecks at brothels. What is coming is a meritocracy in love. It's ironic that most of you are die hard reactionaries, proponents of the most grim, austere economic systems devised, yet when it comes to the distribution of feminine love you are essentially socialists, because you know underneath the "traditional man" posturing that on their terms, in the arena of social charms and graces, you're just about incompetent, unable to compete. Some men probably just don't have the imagination, as some men don't have the physical strength or the intelligence that others do. Some amount of socialism is probably good.

Desert Cat, I am aware that they will reproduce in greater than proportional numbers. It is the negative effects on civilization that interests me the most. The point of that was not to say that they are removing themselves reproductively, but that they are not contributing/maintaining because of the incentives in place, and that several commenters are more involved in cursing the walkaways rather than fix the issues making walking away such an attractive option.

Jack Amok, you are acting out the Plataean strategy. You are appealing to their sense of justice, fair play, and honor, in a nation that has little to none, especially in its treatment of men. A better plan is to speak to self-interest. What does your grandchildren's freedom do for them? If you want allies, you need to bring something to the table besides words, or you risk abandonment when the going gets tough. Without a stake in the outcome, any erstwhile "allies" you manage to scrape together will, in reality, be mere mercenaries. This is unfortunate, but it is the world in which we live.

Oh, and I would ask him if he was hiring. I might have to kill a few of his men to get his attention, but that is just resume building, like an internship--only more brutal and violent. Fighting alongside a legend like Ragnar Lothbrok? That would be the life. Murdering and burning my way up and down the coasts of Europe, taking the pick of the women, and just raising hell for the hell of it for years? Too much fun to pass up.

Jack Amok, I might have mistook your meaning. I am not whining and bitching and walking home. I am taking my balls and going to play for another team, one that values competition and victory over inclusiveness and participation.

I am going to admit, I cannot get a wife and keep ahold of her in this day and age; I do not have what it takes. I have neither the patience nor the inclination to debase myself to the level necessary. Years of learning and practicing game and engaging in combat dating just to find a woman barely worth marriage by a sane metric? It is a waste of my valuable time, energy, and considerable talents. I will not sort through the detritus and filth in the ruins of this falling empire for the few good women left. The Work is too important to compete with a woman, and conversely, no woman is worth the distraction from the Work that she would represent.

Quite honestly, I can see little benefit to any course other than pursuit of scholastic and physical exceptionalism. What masculine paths are still passable? Corporate life is a feminist infested drag, success in politics is millions of negative character references, military is turning into a multicultural social services program with rifles, and any scientific discovery brings risk of professional annihilation should it prove to be uncomfortable. Any way you go about it, even if you emerge victorious, you are still propping up one of the most evil regimes to have ever existed upon the face of the earth. Either way, you lose.

SD, it is not that she is being a bully, it is the fact that her argument are worthless, so she is being a bitch to patch the gaps. Remember that whole thing, you know, the one where men do not like bitches? Being a bitch to guys who already consider you a mental cripple with little to no inherant moral agency is perhaps, just for the sake of argument, not the best way to make a point. You do not get girlpoints online, so you have to hack it on logical discussion alone. She sucks. To put it in perspective, the man pretending to be an insane god makes a more rational argument than his woman.

How do you think men should be dealing with the current situation? I understand and agree with your point about the coming collapse and the need for men to actively participate in rebuilding society, but thats in the future, and the estimating the exact timelines there is still guesswork. What do you suggest men should be doing NOW, especially considering that most of the traditional ways in which men would contribute to society are counter to a mans own best interest.

What do you suggest men should be doing NOW,

Building.

Building their skills, their competence, their reputation with other men.

Building things - physical things, conceptual things, cultural things - becoming adept at creating something valuable out of raw materials.

Practicing the art of being effective, productive, and responsible.

Learning how to work in teams. How to find value in teamwork, and how to find both pride in personal accomplishments and joy in shared triumphs.

Learning to reject the easy out. Strengthening their will, their drive, their desire to control their own fate.

The details will be different for each man. Different strengths and situations, I can't tell you exactly what form all this should take for any specific individual. But strive to shape the world around you. Don't just exist in it and accept the limited choices others offer. Being able to turn that vague notion into a concrete plan of action for yourself is one of the skills you need to have. If you don't have that skill now, develop it. Master the art of effective strategy, planning and execution with small things and build on that to master progressively more ambitious endeavors.

Also, the idea that women are impossible, that any marriage is doomed, that's nonsense. If you do the things above, if you are the Man With The Plan and you work to bend the world to you will, you won't have any trouble keeping a wife and raising your own kids.

Yes, it's hard work. Yes, society ought to give you more support. If it's any consolation, plenty of men throughout history have had it far worse. At least you don't have to worry about Vikings plundering your town and carrying your wife off as part of their booty. At least not yet anyway.

I'm sure it still seems kind of vague. Here's the best guiding light I can give. Live your life so as to matter to someone else. You don't have to do it according to the terms laid out by the Feminist Imperative, but you do need to matter to someone outside your own skin. You need to find something in this world greater than yourself that you care about and that you want to play a part in.

My question was largely intended to try and understand your position better, but your answer coincides pretty well with my current thinking with how to live life as a man. Im not at all keen to prop up the current status quo or to sacrifice my own effort for the benefit of parasites who hate me, but Im also not keen on becoming a parasite myself, or in giving up. I still have a drive to achieve, and for what I do to matter in some way. Food for thought.

I think the irony that's being lost here is that ONLY a woman could credibly write a book about this.

Dr. Helen's very point of the book is exemplified by the fact that only a 'she' could publish it and still retain any legitimacy. What she's detailing in the book is just a retread of the material written by Dalrock and many others with a specific interest in the socioeconomic consequences the feminine imperative has had on the marriage market.

She's not offering anything Dakrock hasn't (more statistically) already covered since 2009, but because she has a vagina her enumerations have more legitimacy in a world that is socially defined by the feminine imperative.

She may get the long knives of the sisterhood, but it's only because they'll pay attention due to her being a woman. Any man writing this book would be dismissed as a misogynist before the ink was dry on the first press run.

Nope, it has its value in certain contexts. But it would be silly to try engaging in a serious discussion with someone who is playing a cartoon character, while he is doing so. If you do, the joke's on you.

I understand how it might seem that way, but you'd be wrong about that.

SD,
I didn't realize you were able to build a bridge to get off Whore Island. Well done enslaving the White Knights and Mangina's like that.

I find it hilarious that your husband continues to allow you to try to insult men and attempt to hold them accountable to your his ideals. But as you should know, you neither have the spiritual hierarchical authority nor the ability to wield verbal force sufficient to do either effectively. The petty pecking and snarking of a woman is no match for man who truly wants to shut and slam her down. The reason that hasn't happened here yet is because these men afford women the respect they would afford any other individual with whom they'd expect to have a reasonable discourse. But it is becomming apparent that the goal of reasonable discourse is much less attainable the more women stick their noses into things.

@ Han, INTJ:

I followed that debate between Han and Megaman about frivorce. I confess I had trouble following the discussion of fractions and proportions at first but I eventually got there, I think. I'm not as smart as you guys.

I'm not at all convinced the proportion of female initiated frivorce is as small as Megaman concluded it was. I do think that you're probably right we're talking about 25% to 50% of divorces overall being due to bad wife behavior (usually adultery or abandonment) and frivorce.

But for sure, that remaining 50 % is some bad male behavior too.

What I object to is this minimization of frivorce as "not really a problem". I respectfully disagree with Susan and with Megaman that female frivorce is "not really a problem". Uh, it IS a problem -- a very, very big one. I have to believe that a wife leaving you for no reason other than that she can, and then ruining the husband financially in the process, is a big reason a lot of men are simply saying "No" to marriage.

Because being that you are both heathens, it seems strange you have a problem with women being heathens as well. It is strange that you expect a Christian behavior out of non-Christian women. It is strange that you do not grasp that it is rare, therefore to be desired, therefor a women can take her pick our the most fit men. And that she determines this fitness.

Are you Christian? Because it is only by that God's standard that you could say that and she is forgiven by Him. Since HE is in charge of the standards and says she is forgiven and a new creature, who the hell are you to say otherwise?

If your are athetist or of any religion other then Islam then you are contridicting yourself by trying to shame her. That you deride her past is intolerant and oppressive.

So please provide the standard you are juding her by before we go any further.

I think the reason for the rage we see amongst this bitter subset of mgtow is they know deep down cowardice has taken root. And when they get called out for being cowards, the pain burns them because there's some truth to the insult. Flat out lies will never hurt someone like the truth. If they weren't cowards, they wouldn't react so much when called out for it.

She was shacking up with this dude, giving him free sex, working a full-time job to pay her share of the bills, and picking up the slack with the rent after he quit his job to stay home and play video games all day."

Honestly, the takeaway from this is 'at least she hasn't married the guy' not 'if only she'd married him, things would be different.' Does anyone, the silly wench involved included, think tying the knot is magically gonna turn this guy into a good husband? Marriage doesn't protect you from bad relationship choices, it just makes it harder to kick the clown to the curb.

The comment section has been filled with the same attitude towards men normally found in the pages of Jezebel or Salon. Where have all the good men gone? That somehow, men are *required* to marry a woman, and have children and prop up the system for the rest of their lives. And not just any woman! Nooo, it has to be an American woman, or you are naughtybadevil.

Then of course, the accusations of homosexuality, commands to man up and marry,(those sluts is implied) sniping at my masculinity, and the semantic gamesmanship. Seriously, about the only feminist standard insult I have not seen is neckbeard shots. All standard fare.

I am not even a MGHOW, but rather a future expatriate. Just leaving the country is enough to make me a Satanist heathen--which I am not sure if that works; a Satanist would believe in God, just not worship Him--because I am not saving American women. The SD/Sigyn/Carlotta crowd seems to think that I owe something to somebody who is not me.

I have no problem dispensing advice and guidance to those that are wanting. Even if that advice is how to make it in the USA. I will not be silent and stand by while they try to drop obligation around the necks of men. The help is getting uppity, and they need to be put in their place. Without moral agency, they need guidance and control. That is not being provided by their men, so I am acting as a dissenting voice. Men have two opinions that they have to consider: theirs, and God's.

He isn't rebelling. He's indulging. He's feeding at the trough just like the feminist HR minions getting paid to teach mandatory diversity sessions. Celebrating him for figuring out how to game the system is exactly the same as celebrating a woman for divorce-raping her husband. She figured out how to game the system too.

Me, I figure he's on Team Nihilist more than he's on Team XY. That's why I don't root for him.

Rebelling against something means bring it down. Seeking to destroy it and replace it with something else. MarkyMark and his chill job aren't doing that.

So an alpha is only an alpha when he is engaged in sex but when he is sleeping, eating, working, (anything other than not in the act of sex) he is acting like someone who cant get laid (um, is he fucking now?) so he must be a white knight or gamma since those guys dont get sex, and the alpha is acting like them so is one of them....until he is in the act of sex.

He's probably not a nihilist - his meaning of life is simply different from yours. Now he may still be a wage slave or subject to the masters of the system, but at least he is questioning things and claiming some control over his life.

As for getting him to give a sh*t about something greater than himself, first he needs to perceive that there is actually something greater than himself. Saying that he should work for the betterment of a community or for fraternity is empty, when no such thing exists.

@deti

I'm a data-driven guy and not an ideologue. The data seem to suggest a higher bad-wife-divorce/frivorce rate than he was suggesting so I looked into the numbers and found they were at least double of what he was claiming, in terms of the eventual frivorce rate of ever married men.

I don't think that it's a small problem on the one hand. Certainly not one that should be dismissed. OTOH, I don't think most marriages will either end in divorce or frivorce.

I think it's important to have an accurate understanding of both the nature and the size of the problem as a starting point to knowing what actions should be taken.

Had a huge bust up with my partner Gerry, phoned Dr.obodo in tears, he said he could help, I must admit, I was very, very sceptical as didn't really believe he would be back after all he said, but it was just a few days when he phoned and asked to come over to talk, we talked and talked and the silly misunderstaning was all forgiven and we are back together now for good, all thanks to Dr.obodo, I would highly recommend his services, they do really, really work.Here is Info: templeofanswer@hotmail.co.uk or Cell: +2348155425481
