Contemplative dominance for the modern man

Hive mind + jealousy = slim shaming matrons

“Equinox gym is being accused of sexism, thanks to the giant photo of a woman wearing a skintight minidress erected in a high-traffic area of Bethesda, Maryland. It’s the latest backlash against the company’s racy branding efforts.”

While in SEA the models on billboards are not only slim, but are also young. Often times teenagers. Sometimes young teenagers.

I had a dream last night where I was on a bus. Suddenly I was accused of taking the women’s bus. Looking around I noticed that indeed, they were all women. Then some of the unfriendlies started a chant against me, demanding that I get off. I made some comments about how there was no comparable men’s bus, and how women were no picnic to be around either. The comments only spurred on more chanting.

Women love to hive mind when they see any advantage, and love to demonize the opposing force; men. This must surely be a biological instinct, selected by evolution.

And they’re jealous creatures.

Put the two together and you get them hiving against their own competition and any man who dares to appreciate the competition. All the while claiming to be pro woman, of course.

Which is why when feminists talk about prostitution they can’t decide if they are pro female choice or against it, and so often times just pretend that the women don’t actually have agency; women’s choices are actually men’s fault. Difficult to be pro women as a group while being against specific competition, without being obvious about the agenda of jealously guarding ones personal power to mate guard.

But nooooooooo. Women don’t have obvious agendas or strategies. They are unknowable, unique, special snowflakes.

    At some point soon I would like to tell an attractive girl about her place in the competition, if she doesn’t wince and listens more, she’s a keeper.

    It’s seeing a stupid chick on the billiard table felt that makes my blood boil.

    It’s important — or least interesting — to note that most women [individuals] are not aware of the dynamics that Women [sub-species] generate or operate by. Maybe that’s not deep, but I confess I was caught off guard when recently it dawned on me that groups of people (e.g., women, but not exclusively) can create powerful dynamics amongst themselves that no individual within the group actually is aware of, or much responsible for*. Many of the individuals might be unconsciously aware of what’s going on, but it’s possible that some individuals, are truly unconscious, at all levels, of the group dynamics.

    * This responsibility thing (in a moral sense or causal/agency sense) is another topic entirely, which I’m not articulate about….as I’ll prove if you read the rest of this paragraph! The view I sense myself coming ’round to is that generally it’s not productive to blame the average members of a group for dynamics that exist within that group, even if those dynamics are “bad” (for lack of a more precise term) or threatening. This is purely pragmatic and has nothing to do with moral responsibility per se. The skilful — in the Buddhist sense — thing to do is find ways to interrupt, undermine, neutralise or otherwise thwart the bad dynamics, like steering a meteor off course from colliding with Earth or something. Calling the meteor names to its face — even if he/she/it/them bloody well deserves it — just doesn’t seem to help the cause, for the most part; I speak empirically. But okay, if the meteor has some volition — and women as a group do, right? :) maybe… — then making it aware of its destructive path in a manner that let’s it quell the dynamic, change course, and save face is probably valid. Privately scheming against the meteor is wise, obviously. And ridiculing it behind its back as part of the process of coming to terms with, and spreading the word about, its threatening nature seem justified, too.
