I came across some stuff this morning, and it strikes me because of the expectedness of it, and that it is likely where America is going, and pretty much already are at.
Essentially, in Japan, vast numbers of males (I have seen it estimated at 60% of straight males) have opted out of dating and marriage. These males are NOT gay, they simple have no interest in entertaining women. I guess Japan has a feminist problem too, which is surprising I thought they were more docile. Anyway, it is starting to worry some corporations and the government because of the (in my mind totally predictable) consequence that these males are not ‘status-conscious’ or interested in spending money.
Does this not sound a lot like the men rights advocate (mra) or men going their own way (mgtow) we have over here? Are we not discussing the very real effect of men leaving the dating pool? Feminists might how about being ‘cowardly’ or to ‘man up’ but the exodus is extremely predictable.
It is pretty obvious really, especially when I hear stories like from the UK about ‘rinsers’ ( http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2145249/Sex-Lies-Rinsing-Guys-Meet-women-trawling-internet-rich-men.html) who USE males to give them things, with no companionship or sex in return. Guys for the most part at least possess some degree of rationality, and while it often takes repeated beatings, the fact there is a ‘dating problem’ lamented by women in anedoctal evidence of our own exodus in this country.
Is it really that surprising when a male could spend 60-100$ on a dinner/date (a large portion of his day’s work, if he is even working) on a girl, and when said girl either doesnt give sex, or abandons him to somebody else it doesnt take to many times to decide ‘well damn, I could have bought a video game, saved 40$ and had more fun than what just happened.’
These herbivores (and most mra/mgtow) are not opposed to females, most would be fine if a girl approached them, the problem is the game is stacked so heavily against males, that the rewards (fleeting) are not worth the costs (mounting).
In my estimation that fact it is socially acceptable over there has led to a huge increase in people coming out as herbivores. ‘Well, fuck em, none of my friends are bothering with girls, and halo last night was way funner than getting turned down at the bar two nights ago’.
Once this catches on here, there will likewise be a huge explosion, I think we are on the cusp of it as we speak. In 5-10 years I think we will see very similar happenings, vast swaths of males not bothering with self entitled bitches. Of course the shaming will increase ‘where have all the good men gone’ ‘men just need to man up’ ‘there is nothing but boys, I need a man’. But the irony is all the predictable screaming feminists will do, demonizing being alone, demonizing video games, porn, etc. all it will do is drive men away in increasing numbers.
Congrats feminists, ‘where have all the good men gone?’, you forced them out. They are obviously happier to, because they arent coming back.
