Single Motherhood Sucks According to Science

Not that this was news to anyone,at least not to anyone in this particular sphere of the web, or anyone with a reasonable amount of common sense.

As if the actual numbers and statistics, the demographics, of children raised by single mothers wasn’t enough; what with the increased risk of drug abuse, incarceration, decreased academic performance, increased promiscuity, higher levels of insecurity and social anxiety, etc. etc. etc.

Now we have Professor of Neuroscience, David Linden laying down a few interesting facts, namely that mothers make terrible mothers when on their own.

Of course you try to bring up these kinds of facts in public or during conversation and most people jerk their knees at lightning speed, and recoil with some variation of pre-programmed/politically correct nonsense:

“Mothers should get to choose who they live with/are married to!”

“The woman should get to choose!”

“So you just want to take away their rights as women/mothers?”

“Women can raise children just as well/even better than a man can! Everyone knows this!” (Strawman alert! Strawman alert!)

People will instantly blurt these responses out all the while completely missing the point.

This isn’t a dick measuring contest between men and women (it’s pretty obvious who would win). For all the talk about giving women the ability or right to choose, you want to know who has little say in all of this?

The fathers.

You know who has absolutely no choice in all of this?

The children.

No one cares about what they want though, as “oppression” is the natural state for children anyways (beneath their parents, at least) and no one cares what men think. So that just leaves women for the Social Justice Warriors™ to use as an excuse to justify their pitiful self-righteous rage.

Never mind the fact that women initiate the majority of divorces, putting them primarily at fault for ruining the childhoods (and possibly adulthood) of their offspring. That just makes you a misogynist and a supporter of Rape Culture.™

This is why every single mother should be shamed relentlessly, and before you go all NAWALT on me, yes there are exceptions. What’s you’re point? Most of these women are just making poor choices and decided that spreading their legs for the wrong person (or as is often the case, the wrong people) was a good choice. Let them bear the brunt of their terrible decisions and let the world see it in its full glory so that everyone else can start holding themselves up to some kind of standard. Do not date them, do not applaud them. Ridicule them for daring to spread their bastard spawn and terrible life philosophy onto others.

I’m not holding my breath for that one, however. Still, a guy can dream.

The Validity of Higher Education and STEM Degrees

I came across this video whilst perusing YouTube, and with a title as interesting as “Students Ditching Technology Majors – Find Out Why” my curiosity was thoroughly piqued.

Unfortunately, the title is a bit misleading, and it does not actually delve too far into the reasons behind or why many students are dropping out of, if not outright ignoring, STEM degrees. There is some half-assed guessing and approximation, but none of it is particularly deep.

First off, lets point out the biggest elephant in the room; the young woman commentator in the video, Ana Kasparian. She is a young, white looking American female with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism. Does she look like the kind of person that has ever had a real job? You know, the kind of job that actually contributes to a nation’s standard of living? Perhaps a job involving a trade, or heavy and dangerous equipment? An occupation involving less than ideal working conditions, possibly outside? Judging from the smooth skin, shiny hair, and being relatively youthful looking for a 27 year-old woman, it’s safe to assume no.

There wasn’t quite as much biographical info on the other host, John Iadarola, but it isn’t particularly important to the point I’m making.

This is important to note because it is no secret that women are now the significant majority of college students in the U.S. now, and as the majority their choices and actions are going to reflect the overall state of the sector.

A side note – I have yet to meet a woman at my own campus (or any campus, really) that was not pursuing something along the lines of Nursing, Hospitality Management (whatever the heck that is supposed to entail), Fashion or something similar. Interesting that women as a whole were so quick to leave the domestic sphere, where they would be taking care of their own children and families, and replace it with a job in the Hospitality/Nursing sector, where they now get to take care of other people’s children and families. The irony is too much sometimes.

It is honestly not even truly worth educating women in the STEM discipline regardless, as they tend to not work nearly as much or as long as their male counterparts, hence the reason why women, on average, earn less than men. Add in the heightened risk of a sexual harassment or discrimination case or the possibility of maternity leave, and things should be clear.

Going beyond that, there are the motivations many of these students and graduates and young people overall have for going to college in the first place. At first the hosts in the above video mention jobs, then laziness, then celebrity culture having everyone believing they can become the next big celebrity, etc. While all of these are good starting points, they fail to delve into the “meat” of the issue.

The above video goes a bit further into some of the reasons why STEM majors are needed, mostly citing neato catch phrases as “driving the economy” and “tomorrow’s innovators.” But that’s just it though; anyone who actually want’s to be a driver of the economy or an innovator will already be taking steps to do so, with or without a college degree.

The fact of the matter is that most of the people going to college (mostly women) have no real reason or motivation for being there.

Granted that you’ll never hear a feminist complain about the gender disparity in occupations such as plumbing, or HVAC, or oil rigging, etc. This brings us to yet another conclusion:

Another truth is that women do not want to work.

Many of the students and graduates are on auto-pilot, merely spinning their wheels to appear as if they are moving or maintaining/gaining status. It isn’t even laziness; their lives have been on a conveyor belt throughout their entire existence and a college degree is just the next logical (or most common) step. They aren’t lazy, they just don’t care, and I do not entirely blame them. Their parents, their families, their friends, their teachers, their nation, everyone told them it was either college, maybe the military, or being a deadbeat, and they listened.

Another common theme among many of these students is that they are primarily from broken families as well. With little hopes for getting a decent job, delayed adolescence via living with/off of their parents for far longer than is natural, and fewer hopes for having a happy or decent marriage, their malaise is understandable. It may be wrong, even unhealthy, but it is what it is.

As with any institution where the majority of men have decided to jump ship, the boat is sinking, and all that’s left is to listen to all the women and children scream as they head into the watery abyss.

Equality’s a bitch.

The Case Against Polygamy

Polygamy

A few within my rather modest and strange circle of friends have exclaimed a preference for Polygamy, saying things such as “monogamy is unnatural and/or stupid” or “it would be better to just let people do what they want,” etc.

The second argument is somewhat perplexing, considering that giving people the freedom to “do pretty much whatever they want” as far as relationships go has already been achieved. That was the whole crux of sexual liberation and Feminism and civil rights movements in the 1960’s, giving us such wonderful things as hypergamy. How has that been working out so far, by the way?

The idea that some of my friends (and surely many others) have of making polygamy some sort of governmental or officially recognized institution would just be redundant. Everyone is already a whore, either willing and/or able to sleep with as many suitable mates as possible and at any time.

There’s also the fact that everyone already participates in varying levels of soft polygamy. This is where the line separating these terms begins to get a little fuzzy though. At what point does it just become polyamory? At what point is it just promiscuity?

Then there is the anger or resentment towards monogamy. Most people have a simple view of monogamy; they think of your stereotypical 1950’s marriage or nuclear family setting, or something along those lines. Of course, as many of us know, that entire institution has been gutted. Marriage is dead, it is meaningless, etc. etc.

As the video above explains, however, monogamy is actually somewhat nuanced and comes in several different flavors; social monogamy, sexual monogamy, etc.

Going beyond that, the idea of monogamy being “unnatural” is a silly argument. Practically all technology is unnatural. Your exceptionally high standard of living is unnatural. The computer or phone you are reading this on is unnatural. What is your point?

The truth is that most people (mostly guys) have the false idea that if polygamy were a “thing,” then they could have open harems and live like sexual kings. This is the “male rationalization hamster” at work.

A woman can understandably be in favor of polygamy because most of them would have no problem sharing an “alpha” with several other women. All that a woman has to do is look halfway decent and spread her legs and her options open up (pun intended).

Most men do not have that luxury, however. Most of the very same men that express being in favor of polygamy are they themselves just regular men that often falsely believe themselves to be “a cut above the rest” just because they have 2+ women/booty calls on their phone’s contacts list. Establishing some kind of big “official” polygamy would only turn the sexual marketplace into an even more zero-sum game, with most men (perhaps including many of you) as the “losers.”

This along with the fact that it would give the very small percentage of men with real harem capabilities the ability to flaunt their success and you have a recipe for revolt. Or at least a lot of violence. As interesting as the ancient tribes are to study, I would prefer to not emulate them. I like having well-maintained roads and the ability to go for long, peaceful motorcycle rides.

If feminism was an outlet for women to collectively rid themselves of any sexual responsibility no matter the cost or detriment to society at large, perhaps polygamy (or what most men believe polygamy to be) is the male equivalent.

Perhaps we should do it, just so the entire charade can come crashing down even faster. Let’s just get this societal collapse thing over with so we can move on.

Black Bike Week

Never before have I experienced such staggering levels of cognitive dissonance.

On one hand, the documentary above presents a celebration of motorcycles and women, which in and of themselves are glorious. On the other hand, all that can be seen on screen is a messy and chaotic amalgamation of degeneration and “booty-claps.”

What is even more offensive is the idea purported by the narrator that these people are gathering in order to “celebrate the fallen soldiers of the U.S. Army.” I highly doubt that anyone of sufficient character or dignity would want to be “celebrated” this way.

Our fallen heroes must be rolling in their graves. Many good men have died all so people could gather and shake their lower fat-bags on top of motorcycles.

A lot of the footage tries to portray the women available as sexy, worthy of watching and chasing. Unfortunately, it merely highlights just how disgusting and out of shape these poor souls are.

Even the comparison between Black Bike Week and “White Bike Week” (i.e. Harley bike Week) falls flat. At least at White Bike Week I wouldn’t have to fear that my bike, wallet, or kidneys may get stolen. Plus there’s the added advantage of numerous nubile light-skinned beauties on display for the choosing. Overall it seems like the much better party, despite the narrator’s claim that Black Bike Week, or B.B.W. (Haha! Check out that awesome and oh so fitting acronym!) for having “better music.” Sure, the increase in sports bikes is worthy of praise, but the “ass-clapping” is not.

Truth be told, booty-clapping is just another way for overweight women to rationalize their excessive girth by giving it utility. A poor utility, certainly, but a utility none the less, and a disguise to the real problem; obesity.

Even funnier is when the narrator (Charlet Duboc) introduces herself and vaguely exclaims her motivations for coming. We all know the real reason why she went, however. Being the one seemingly well-put-together and young white woman among a crowd of deafening dark she-beasts is a good way of garnering exceptional treatment. She is basically becoming a “big fish in a small pond” so to speak. Plus she is a young white girl and they’re notoriously indiscriminate party addicts.

Also – notice the sign at 2:28 disclaiming “No Fat Chicks?” What is one of the first thing you see once inside the party? Several fat chicks slobbering on the faces of many a desperate man. Just another example of how dissonant and even contradictory the entire affair is.

To top it all off, the astounding level of *cough*“creative”*cough* and custom motorcycles should be a visual treat. Instead it looks more as if MySpace found its way to plaster itself over a bike festival. It is a shame, because motorcycles are typically beautiful pieces of machinery. Here they have been rendered gaudy and loud, which should be no surprise considering the demographic.

Fortunately, much of the comments on the video express similar sentiments, and has overall turned into a massive hate-fest, which is par for the course for any YouTube video in general I suppose.

Just another example of the underclass not giving a fuck.
