The Empowered Female Parasite
That’s what I hear whenever a woman brags about being empowered and independent; it’s the first sign that she’s weak, dependent, and parasitical off of civilization.
The single mothers have been written about extensively in the Manosphere. With 50% of marriages ending in divorce, and 70-90% of divorces being female-driven YOLO frivorces, we don’t need a Harvard-funded study to prove that plenty of women treat men like walking wallets, and expect society to hold the bag when they birth a bastard with Harley McBadboy. In fact, it seems we’ve been so successful in this regard that most “moderate” Feminists have stopped trying to openly blame men for women’s poor choices, and even the mainstream media is beginning to sense that the jig is up.
This isn’t to say that the battle’s been won by any means; the “moderate” Feminists are still seeking out wealth-transfer payments from men to women, only now they’re couching them in male-friendly rhetoric. Press our advantage, I say – on to Stage Two.
Stage Two is shredding the trope of the Empowered, Independent Woman™: the posh, professional princesses who pridefully prance about, with inflated incomes and easy jobs, who remain wilfully ignorant – nescient – of the corrosive effects they’re having on the economy, the society, and future generations. They’re a bunch of children who’ve put on male costumes – power-suits and coveralls – who want to pretend to be “One of the Boys!”, but who aren’t providing a net-contribution to the world.
Of course this isn’t a universal; there are outliers who actually are providing the value their paycheques claim (I’d estimate somewhere between five and twenty percent), but those are the women who would’ve been working anyway, 100 years ago. They don’t need Feminism, and they never did; this system is hurting them, too.
To my female readers: try and turn off the part of your brain that wants to vote for Team Woman: there is no Team Woman. It’s nothing but a glamour created by marketers and politicians to manipulate you. It’s the path of self-destructive solipsism.
Start voting Team Human instead.
A Society Bent Over Backwards
To explain why these women are such parasites – and to help differentiate the minority who aren’t – let’s start by identifying the conditions which led to this insanity.
1) Affirmative Action
To quote Aaron Clarey, who’s written on this a number of times:
My genuine loathing for HR is no secret. I believe HR is the single largest non-public sector threat to the private sector and thus, America. I also believe the vast majority of HR “professionals” are power hungry, sexist, bigoted and incompetent. I believe HR was created as an affirmative action program for women (this is starting to sound like the Nicene Creed). And I believe because of HR’s power trip, it has become an agent of compliance and ego-stroking, not performance.
If the government had to use force to grant you your job, it’s not economically productive. The same thing goes for your Education – if it required lobby groups and bursaries to get women into Universities, it’s because they are an under-performing group.
Women are not a disadvantaged class of people; they are not an abused child who needs counselling; they are not a veteran who needs physiotherapy. What they are is round pegs being shoved into square holes.
The reason that women “under-performed” in the past isn’t because they were “held down by the patriarchy”, and it isn’t because women are stupid and lazy – that’s nothing but a false dichotomy. The real reason women “under-performed” is because we’ve been measuring their performance by male standards. Here’s the thing about men and women: we’re different. We have different strengths and weaknesses, we have different goals and ambitions, and we have different attraction triggers.
And there’s nothing wrong with that.
Far from it, actually – our different natures complement one another brilliantly.
One of these differences is the nature of our work. Employment is a masculine field; it requires hierarchy, end-oriented goals, and a logical, non-emotional style of behaviour. Home-making and society-building requires egalitarianism, means-oriented thinking, and an empathetic understanding of our neighbours. Women are simply not suited towards a productive work environment, they are suited to a social environment – and yet they form a plurality within the modern workforce. How has this come to be?
Affirmative Action. If you’re a woman with a corporate job, there’s a very high probability that it was manufactured by government legislation and lobbyists. The company doesn’t need you – and it would be better off if you weren’t there.
2) A Culture of Equality
Affirmative Action on its own is an inadequate explanation; I can already imagine the hordes of Princess Power Suits saying to me “I work in a field that’s made up of both sexes! I’m not an HR diversity-bot!” And that’s certainly true for a lot of them… but let me ask you something: how far has the company bent-over backwards to create an environment which keeps you happy?
Affirmative Action wasn’t the only thrust of the Feminists, there was also the indoctrination about Equality: the idiotic idea that men and women are interchangeable, when they clearly aren’t. Our schools told us that women were just as good at Math as men (most of them aren’t), and our media provided countless examples of 120lb girls beating up 220lb men. It’s amazing, how well this glamour works. I know rough-and-tumble blue collar men, who’d never hit a lady and who frequently come to women’s defence, who’d be hard-pressed to admit that men are substantially stronger than women
We disbelieve our lying eyes, and make truth out of fantasy.
It’s with this insanity programmed into us that the modern work environment is created. Managers and directors falsely assume that women are just as productive as men, and if they aren’t, then it’s a failing on the part of the employers. So workplaces have bent-over-backwards to make work more accommodating to women, while remaining completely oblivious to the fact that they’re making it hostile to the men. Instead of being a workplace, the corporation has become a boyfriend – which is insane, but with the insanity so widespread, it’s become the new norm.
A woman’s job comes at the expense of trampling on her male coworkers. You ladies don’t notice it, but the men you work with are constantly minding their Ps and Qs, and restraining their brusque masculinity, lest they get a Sexual Harassment Complaint. It is the story of Harrison Bergeron: the only way to lift you ladies up was to weigh the men down – and crippling your workers does not lead to improved production.
But that’s just the start – it gets even worse.
In addition to punishing men for being more productive, companies and governments will force men to be as weak as women. Women take more sick leave and personal days, and so – in the name of Equality – men must do so as well.
A great example of this is the latest piece of legislation being passed by Alberta’s “Conservative” government:
The Alberta government announced today that workers will now be able to take up to eight weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave from the workplace to care for a gravely sick family member.
To qualify for compassionate care leave Albertans must fulfill the following requirements:
- Have worked at least 52 weeks for their employer.
- Provide their employer with a certificate signed by the attending physician regarding the grave condition of the family member, and their need of care.
“No one’s job should be in jeopardy when they take time off work to care for a loved one.,” said Minister of Jobs, Skills, Training and Labour Thomas Lukaszuk in a press release.
Since women are already taking plenty of time off to take care of their sick relatives, this puts men at a competitive advantage. Can’t have that! We need to make the Men more lazy, too.
The entry of women into the workplace has been a boon to large corporations, who can afford mountains of paperwork delineating HR policies, companies who treat Humans as if they’re Resources to be exploited, but it spells the death of small businesses who are increasingly burdened under legislative landslide.
Women: not only do they consistently vote for socialist tyranny, their mere presence in the workplace demands it.
The Unintended Consequences
1) Women’s Work Was Not Unproductive
The Feminist drive to get women into the workplace was fuelled by boredom, and the delusion that men were having “fun” when they went to work. This is one of the darker aspects of female nature run amok: women need men’s attention for validation, and the childish girls we have running around today require it constantly. You can see this whenever a modern woman gets drunk: they’ll constantly (and annoyingly) seek out male attention, imposing their presence where it’s not wanted. Birthday parties are bad, and Bachelorette parties are worse. The modern degenerate woman is like a dog cooped up at home, tearing up a loaf of bread to get attention – they’re completely out of control.
And so women rushed in to these male spaces, desperate for attention and praise, but they never stopped to consider that they had duties to perform in the home. Children don’t raise themselves, and somebody needs to cook dinner. With the entry of women into the workplace, all of these jobs have become outsourced, and this hasn’t made society better:
- State or Company funded daycare, where a “Professional” abuses your children.
- Fast Food and TV Dinners, fattening you up, and making you ill.
- Convenience, convenience, convenience – at an exorbitant price.
- The end of Domestic Tranquility, and the dominance of the Boob Tube.
With 8 hours of work, 2 hours of commute, and 8 hours of sleep, that leaves us 6 hours in which we have to eat, raise our children, follow the news, improve ourselves, take care of our homes, repair the car, and try and love one another – all while experiencing the adrenaline crash that comes after a long day at work. Is it any wonder that we’re miserable, alienated, and desperate for escapist entertainment? As Keoni Galt points out, this lifestyle was designed to keep us consuming worthless crap.
It was stay-at-home moms who saved us from this Consumerist Hell, providing a vital function in the maintenance of civilization. Arguing that it wasn’t paid word is chimerical – money’s no good if you don’t have the time to spend it – that argument is nothing but sleight-of-hand, a method for attention-deprived Feminists to wedge their way into a male space.
And because we let them get away with it, we all get to suffer.
2) Destroying Men’s Self-Esteem
I already covered how, in accommodating women, the workplace has grown hostile to men: what I didn’t mention was the psychological effects this has. Feminists like to joke about the fragility of male self-esteem the same way a Parisian harlot would joke about how the French Resistance Fighters are scared of the Nazis: with selfish cruelty, and utter obliviousness.
Men’s Self-Esteem is incredibly fragile – as well as utterly vital to civilization. Take it away, and you don’t have a man anymore. What you have is either an under-performing Gamma, eating Cheetos and playing World of Warcraft – or you have a violent misogynist, pursuing pleasure at the expense of those around him.
Appeasing female employees has forced a psychological neutering of men in the workplace. Healthy masculine virility will get you fired, and the constant kowtowing to bosses who lack virtue destroys a man’s soul. As Rand Paul recently said:
“This whole sort of war on women thing, I’m scratching my head because if there was a war on women, I think they won,”
“You know, I don’t see so much that women are downtrodden; I see women rising up and doing great things. And in fact, I worry about our young men sometimes because I think that women really are out-competing the men in our world.”
The Republicans fret, and the feminists giggle, over this male under-performance, but the reality is that our institutions are designed to create it. Addict young boys to Ritalin, propagandize about the evil nature of men, then threaten to take away their livelihoods if they dare to question the Official Truth. The results – layabouts and rapists – was a foregone conclusion.
This was the price of women’s entry into the workforce. Was it worth it, ladies?
3) Destroying Male Incentives
One of the most idiotic things I ever read was some Feminist working for the UN, claiming that women in developing countries were more likely to spend their money on their children than men were; that men wasted their money on alcohol and sports cars, while the Responsible, Mature Women spent it on domesticity. Ergo, we needed more make-work Female-only jobs in the developing world.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Self-sacrifice is encoded into a man’s DNA: we work and strive for the respect of our peers (Patriotism), and the love of a woman (Husband and Provider). Laziness and welfare is antithetical to our nature.
Women, on the other hand, are programmed to accept these gifts that men want to give them.
It’s only in this degenerate modern age with our perverse incentive schemes that these instincts turn foul. Men pursue flash and pzazz, wasting their money on foolish pursuits, because that’s the only way to attract women; meanwhile, the women accept free drinks, free rides, and (more often than you think) free cocaine, despite earning the same income as the men around them.
Their personal income is wasted on conspicuous consumption, $500 purses, and Sunday brunches, in a pointless attempt to out-compete other women, while doing nothing to attract men.
And it all boils down to their inflated incomes.
Women are naturally attracted to signs of success in a man, and money is a proxy for that success – and all success is relative. This is neatly summed up in the Futurama Episode The Cryonic Woman:
Michelle: You know your problem, Fry? You’re not ambitious. You should be chief.
Fry: What do I need, ulcers?
Michelle: But I want power. I’m tired of the chief’s girlfriend lording it over me with her fancy coyote hide.
- [They watch Butch’s girlfriend stroking the hide.]
Fry: Alright, alright. If it’ll make you happy, I’ll overthrow society.
It’s not a man’s income that matters – it’s his income relative to the baseline.
So what happens when men and women are pushed into the same employment opportunities? The obvious: women’s sense of entitlement is inflated. Instead of an average woman looking to meet an average guy, her income makes her think that she deserves an above average guy – and I know you ladies aren’t so good at math, but I trust you can figure out the problem with this.
Meanwhile, earning an income does nothing to improve a woman’s Marriage Market Value. Us men value your intelligence, beauty, and compassion – not your bank account. You ladies value strength, leadership, and accomplishment – which does translate into bank account.
Earning the same income as your male peers ruins them as dating prospects; it raises the baseline of your expectations. And you ladies never noticed this because unsuccessful, undateable men are invisible to you – you really only notice the top ten percent.
I recommend the following as an exercise: look around your office, and at the men surrounding you. Instead of asking “Whom would I consider dating here?” you should instead ask “Whom here is a decent, dateable guy?” I predict that a large number of men will suddenly become visible to you – and yet you still wouldn’t consider dating them yourself.
Don’t think men haven’t noticed this; the crisis Rand Paul was talking about is a direct consequence of these shifts.
In a healthy society, hard-work and playing-by-the-rules are rewarded; in our present society they aren’t. For your average guy, working at your average job, the situation’s twice as stressful, and the reward is all but evaporated. Their egos are shot, the women ignore them, and their only outlets are video games and porn.
And you wonder why guys are dropping out.
Women haven’t replaced men – they’ve supplanted them. “Replace” would suggest that they’re now performing the same jobs, at the same capacity, that men used to perform, but they simply aren’t. From the very start, massive incentives and accommodations needed to be put into place, and even with all of that, women still predominate in A) Paid-forms of homemaking (Daycare, Social Services) and B) easy, air-conditioned office jobs. All of the hard-work that drives civilization – rough-necks, home construction, engineering – is still being performed by men.
As the only good Feminist Camille Paglia said, “If civilization had been left in female hands, we would still be living in grass huts.” I would add to that – if we continue to hand our civilization over to women, we will soon be living in grass huts once more.
To sum all of this up in bullet-point form:
- The professional women are playing at make-believe, pretending to be men: their existence requires extensive manipulations of the economy, as well as brainwashing about our psychology. They are not an organic part of the economy, arising naturally out of the free market, but a forced make-work program, designed to cater to Feminist delusions of Equality.
- Very few of the professional women are actually productive – they do not work in the industries which form the baseline of civilization, they predominantly work in ancillary, easy, and often unnecessary industries, which would crumble without government support.
- The nature of the legislation which created these jobs, as well as the women’s presence itself, serves to undermine the masculine virtues which are necessary for the creation and maintenance of civilization.
Professional women are parasites – economically and socially. Despite their claimed independence, they aren’t holding the bag at the end of the day: they know that society will bail them out of their bad choices, and that if they waste all of their money on purses, they can wheedle a free drink out of a chump at the bar. They don’t take responsibility for their society, committing themselves to its long-term success, rather they use society to sate their hedonistic desires – for status, for cocktails, for Harley McBadboy, and for the free cocaine and the carousel.
They aren’t birthing the next generation, and even when they are, they’re doing it as either single mothers, or absentee workaholics, handing their babies over to third-world immigrants. They behave like self-centred teenage girls, using men for ego-affirment, rather than respecting them as human beings, and forming a loving and honest bond.
They’re behaving like errant children, gorging themselves on candy – and the candy is making them sick.
Women are miserable in today’s world: they get everything they want, instead of what they need. They’ve been absolved of all responsibility by society, and they thought this would free them from Natural Law – but it hasn’t. You girls have been making choices that are bad for men, bad for children, bad for civilization, and – ultimately – bad for yourselves as well.
Put down the cake, my honey: it’s time to start eating your vegetables.
