  1. Dropping red pills on Christian feminists over at Doug Wilson’s blog.

    “In strictly monogamous societies, one where women only have
    sex with their husbands, a sexual cartel is in place. Under this cartel, sex is
    very expensive for men, requiring a pledge of a lifetime of productive income.
    Women under this system despise a slut because she breaks the cartel. She
    undermines the value of sex and threatens the whole system. Once the cartel is
    broken, there is a race to the bottom and sex becomes nearly valueless. This is
    why the Slutwalk is a feminist act, as an overt rebellion against the system of

    This is an old idea and not my own but it occurred to me to
    add the white knight to the cartel system analysis. There is also a value in
    the system placed on protection and provision. (Since paternity is binary and
    provision is not, a provision cartel can never be as strong as the sexual
    cartel.) If protection and provision are provided on demand, with no loyalty or
    monogamy given in exchange, the system is undermined and a woman will be much
    less likely to make a life-long commitment to one man. When a man advocates for
    white knighting or some confused notion of chivalry, he is attacking
    patriarchy. When white knighting is performed on an industrial scale by the
    state, the cartel is destroyed. In that case, men are valued in the mating
    market by machismo not provider status. PUA is downstream of feminism. The
    patriarch despises white knights for this reason. The PUA chuckles at the white
    knight because he increases non-monogamous sexual access. Women also quietly
    despise the white knight as he has neither the value of the patriarchal provider
    or the macho PUA. He has value as a feminist ally but not as a mate.”

  2. That thing on anglo americans is pretty hard to take seriously .Most “americans” are no longer anglo and have no genetic tie to the Founding Stock. It’s wrong from the start
